It is highly desirable, that all, who have the REFERENCE Bible should become familiar with the KEY SHEET and TABLES subjoined. For this purpose, each reference letter should direct the eye to the corresponding letter with its questions in the Key sheet, till all those questions suggest themselves as soon as the letter is seen. Every proper name, about the pronunciation of which there can be any hesitancy, should be examined in the Table till the correct pronunciation of it becomes fa miliar. All words found in the Etymological, Geographical, and Miscel laneous Tables, should be traced from the text to those Tables, and when found on the maps, to those likewise. When reference is made to prophecy, either as recorded or as accomplished, the Reference and Chronological Tables are to be consulted. Should it be sometimes thought, that either the Printer or the Editor, had inserted a wrong letter in the margin, if the person using it is induced by the existence of that letter, to candidly and prayerfully inquire and ascertain what the Holy Ghost does teach there, the great end of the marking will have been answered. Should heads of families extensively supply the members with each a Reference Bible, and after the services on the Lord's day, read in turn two or three chapters, asking the younger members questions about the facts, and miracles recorded; and older members questions about the doctrines, precepts, traits of character, &c. which come into the portion read, interspersing the whole with familiar explanations and practical remarks, we believe incalculable good would result. Clergymen and others most acquainted with the word of God, may derive important advantages from perusing the Scriptures in the order suggested by the Harmonies. This order might be profitably used for the instruction of Bible classes.

The First Book of MOSES, called GENESIS.


the beginning God created
the heaven and the earth.
2 And the earth was without
form, and void; and darkness was
upon the face of the deep: and
the Spirit of God moved upon the
face of the waters.

S 3 And God said, Let there be
light: and there was light.
f4 And God saw the light, that
it was good: and God divided the
light from the darkness.

5 And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night: and the evening and the morning were the first day.

f6 ¶ And God said, Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters.

7 And God made the firmament, and divided the waters which were under the firmament from the waters which were above the firmament: and it was so.

8 And God called the firmament Heaven: and the evening and the morning were the second day. f9 And God said, Let the waters under the heaven be gathered together unto one place, and let the dry land appear: and it was


10 And God called the dry land Earth; and the gathering together of the waters called he Seas: and God saw that it was good.

13 And the evening and the morning were the third day. f14 And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven, to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years.

15 And let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven to

give light upon the earth: and it was so.

16 And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars also.

17 And God set them in the fir mament of the heaven to give light upon the earth,

18 And to rule over the day, and over the night, and to divide the light from the darkness: and God saw that it was good.

19 And the evening and the morning were the fourth day.. f 20 And God said, Let the waters bring forth abundantly the moving creature that hath life, and fowl that may fly above the earth in the open firmament of heaven.

21 And God created great whales, and every living creature that moveth, which the waters brought forth abundantly after their kind, and every winged fowl after his kind: and God saw that it was good.

22 And God blessed them, say. 11 And God said, Let the earthing, Be fruitful, and multiply, and bring forth grass, the herb yield- fill the waters in the seas, and let ing seed, and the fruhree yielding fowl multiply in the earth. fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth: and it

23 And the evening and the morning were the fifth day. f24 And God said, Let the earth bring forth the living creature after his kind, cattle, and creeping thing, and beast of the earth after his kind and it was so.

25 And God made the beast of the earth after his kind, and cattle 3

after their kind, and every thing in it he had rested from all his that creepeth upon the earth after work which God created and his kind and God saw that it was made.


* 26 ¶ And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.

t 27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.

28 And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.

29 And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat.

30 And to every beast of the earth, and to every fowl of the air, and to every thing that creepeth upon the earth, wherein there is life, I have given every green herb for meat and it was so.

31 And God saw every thing that he had made, and behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day. CHAP. II.

f4 These are the generations of the heavens and of the earth when they were created, in the day that the LORD God made the earth and the heavens,

5 And every plant of the field before it was in the earth, and ev ery herb of the field before it grew: for the LORD God had no caused it to rain upon the earth, and there was not a man to till the ground.

6 But there went up a mist from the earth, and watered the whole face of the ground. d 7 And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.

g 3¶ And the LORD God planted a garden eastward in Eden; and there he put the man whom he had formed.

ƒ9 And out of the ground made the LORD God to grow every tree that is pleasant to the sight, and good for food; the tree of life also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of knowledge of good and evil.

g 10 And a river went out of Eden to water the garden: and from thence it was parted, and became into four heads.

g 11 The name of the first is Pi son: that is it which compasseth the whole land of Havilah, where there is gold;

12 And the gold of that land is good: there is bdellium and the onyx-stone.

g 13 And the name of the second river is Gihon: the same is it that compasseth the whole land of Ethiopia.

f18 And the LORD God said, It is not good that the man should be alone: I will make him a help meet for him.

4 And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die : 5 For God doth know, that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened; and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.

19 And out of the ground the LORD God formed every beast of the field, and every fowl of the air, and brought them unto Adam to see what he would call them;ƒ6 And when the woman saw and whatsoever Adam called eve- that the tree was good for food, ry living creature, that was the and that it was pleasant to the name thereof. eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat; and gave also unto her husband with her, and he did eat.

20 And Adam gave names to all cattle and to the fowl of the air, and to every beast of the field but for Adam there was not found a help meet for him.

f21 And the LORD God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept; and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof:

22 And the rib, which the LORD God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man.

23 And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of man.

7 And the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they were naked: and they sewed

leaves together, and made themselves aprons.

c 8 And they heard the voice of the LORD God walking in the garden in the cool of the day: and Adam and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the LORD God amongst the trees of the garden.

9 And the LORD God called unto Adam, and said unto him, Where art thou?

c 10 And he said, I heard thy voice in the garden and I was afraid, because I was naked; and I hid myself.

11 And he said, Who told thee that thou wast naked? Hast thou eaten of the tree whereof I commanded thee, that thou shouldest not eat?
