16 And the bow fhall be in the cloud, and I will look upon it, that I may remember the ever lafting covenant between God and every living creature ofall feth that is upon the earth.

And you, be ye fruitfull, and multiply, bring forth abundantly in the earth and multiplytherein.

22 And Ham the father of Canaan faw the nakednis of his father, and told his two brethren without.

23 And Shem and Japheth took a gar ment, and laid it upon both their fhoutders, and went backward, and covered the nakednels oftheir father; and their faces were backward: and they law not their fathers nakedness.

24 And Noah awoke from his wine, and knew what his younger fon had don unto him.

29 And Abram and Nahor took them wives: the name of Abrams wife was Sarai; and the name of Nahors wife, Milcah, the daughter of Haran, the father of Milcah, and the father of leah.

8 And he removed from thence unto a mountain on the east of Beth-el, and pitched his tent, baving Beth-el on the weft, and Hai on the eaft: and there he builded an altar unto the LORD, and called upon the Nameofthe LORD. 9 And Abram journeyed, going on still toward the fouth.

19 And there was a famin in the land, and Abram went down into Egypt to fojourn there: for famin was grievous in land. 1 And it came to pafs when he was come near to enter into Egypt, that he faid unto Sarai his wife, Behold, now I know that thou art a fair woman to look upon. 12 Therefore it fhall come to pals, when the Egyptians fhall fee thee,that they fhall fay, This is his wife: and they will kill me, but they will fave theealive.
