Genesis 1:1-31

1 In the beginning God created the heavens 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. 3 And God said, Let there be light, and there was light. 4 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 there was evening and there was morning, one day. 6 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 there was evening and there was morning, a second day. 9 And God said, Let the waters under the heavens be gathered together to one place, and let the dry land appear. And it was so. 10 And God called the dry land Earth, and he called the gathering together of the waters Seas. And God saw that it was good. 11 And God said, Let the earth put forth grass, herbs yielding seed, [and] fruit trees bearing fruit according to their kind (in which is the seed of them) upon the earth. And it was so. 12 And the earth brought forth grass, herbs yielding seed according to their kind, and trees bearing fruit in which is the seed of it, according to their kind. And God saw that it was good. 13 And there was evening and there was morning, a third day. 14 And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of 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 heaven to give light upon the earth. And it was so. 16 And God made the two great lights, the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night, also the stars. 17 And God set them in the firmament of 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 there was evening and there was morning, a fourth day. 20 And God said, Let the waters swarm with swarms of living creatures, and let birds fly above the earth in the open firmament of heaven. 21 And God created the great sea creatures, and every living creature that moves, which the waters brought forth abundantly, according to their kind, and every winged bird according to its kind. And God saw that it was good. 22 And God blessed them, saying, Be fruitful, and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let birds multiply on the earth. 23 And there was evening and there was morning, a fifth day. 24 And God said, Let the earth bring forth living creatures according to their kind, cattle, and creeping things, and beasts of the earth according to their kind. And it was so. 25 And God made the beasts of the earth according to their kind, and the cattle according to their kind, and everything that creeps upon the ground according to its kind. And God saw that it was good. 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 birds of the heavens, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that 27 And God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him, male and female he created them. 28 And God blessed them. And God said to them, Be fruitful, and multiply and replenish the earth, and subdue it, and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the birds of the heavens, and over every living thing that moves upo 29 And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb yielding seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed. To you it shall be for food, 30 and to every beast of the earth, and to every bird of the heavens, and to everything that creeps upon the earth in which there is life, for food--every green herb. And it was so. 31 And God saw everything that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. And there was evening and there was morning, the sixth day.

Exodus 20:8-11

8 Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy. 9 Six days thou shall labor, and do all thy work, 10 but the seventh day is a Sabbath to LORD thy God. Thou shall not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy man-servant, nor thy maid-servant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates, 11 for in six days LORD made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that is in them, and rested the seventh day. Therefore LORD blessed the Sabbath day, and hallowed it.

Acts 20:7

7 And upon the first day of the week, the disciples having come together to break bread, Paul discoursed with them, intending to depart on the morrow. And he prolonged his speech until midnight.

Luke 24:1-53

1 And on the first day of the week, very early morning, they came to the sepulcher bringing the spices that they prepared, and some women with them. 2 And they found the stone rolled away from the sepulcher. 3 And having entered in, they did not find the body of the Lord Jesus. 4 And it came to pass while they were bewildered about this, that behold, two men stood near them in shining apparel. 5 And since they became frightened and bowing down their face to the ground, they said to them, Why seek ye the living among the dead? 6 He is not here, but was raised. Remember how he spoke to you when he was still in Galilee, 7 saying that the Son of man must be delivered up into the hands of sinful men, and be crucified, and the third day to rise. 8 And they remembered his sayings. 9 And having returned from the sepulcher, they reported all these things to the eleven, and to all the others. 10 Now they were Mary Magdalene, and Joanna, and Mary the mother of James, and the other women with them who told these things to the apostles. 11 And their sayings appeared before them as idle talk, and they disbelieved them. 12 But having risen, Peter ran to the sepulcher. And having stooped down, he sees the linen cloths laying alone. And he departed, wondering to himself at that which happened. 13 And behold, two of them were going the same day to a village that was sixty furlongs away from Jerusalem, which name was Emmaus. 14 And they conversed with each other about all these things that happened. 15 And it came to pass, while they conversed and discussed, that Jesus himself also having approached, went along with them. 16 But their eyes were held, not to recognize him. 17 And he said to them, What are these words that ye toss back to each other, while walking and are looking sad. 18 And one, whose name was Cleopas, having answered, said to him, Thou only visit Jerusalem and do not know the things that happened in it during these days? 19 And he said to them, What? And they said to him, The things about Jesus the Nazarene, who became a prophet, a mighty man in work and word before God and all the people, 20 and how our chief priests and rulers delivered him up for condemnation of death, and crucified him. 21 But we hoped that he is the man who is going to redeem Israel. But even with all these things, it brings this third day today from which time these things happened. 22 But also some of our women astonished us, having come to be at the sepulcher early morning. 23 And not having found his body, they came, saying also to have seen a vision of heavenly agents who say he is alive. 24 And some of those with us went to the sepulcher, and found it this way, just as also the women said, but they did not see him. 25 And he said to them, O foolish men, and slow of heart to believe in all that the prophets spoke. 26 Was it not necessary for the Christ to suffer these things, and to enter into his glory? 27 And having begun from Moses and from all the prophets, he expounded to them in all the scriptures the things about himself. 28 And they came near to the village where they were going, and he pretended to go further. 29 And they constrained him, saying, Remain with us, because it is toward evening, and the day has declined. And he went in to remain with them. 30 And it came to pass during his dining with them, that, having taken the bread, he blessed, and having broken in pieces he gave to them. 31 And their eyes were opened, and they recognized him. And he became invisible from them. 32 And they said to each other, Was not our heart burning within us while he spoke to us on the way, while he opened to us the scriptures? 33 And having risen up the same hour, they returned to Jerusalem. And they found the eleven gathered together, 34 and those who were with them who said, The Lord really was raised, and was seen by Simon. 35 And they reported the things on the road, and how he was made known to them during the breaking of the bread. 36 And as they spoke these things, Jesus himself stood in the midst of them, and says to them, Peace to you. 37 But having seen startled, and having become frightened, they presumed to see a spirit. 38 And he said to them, Why are ye troubled, and why do thoughts arise in your hearts? 39 See my hands and my feet, that it is I myself. Handle me and see, because a spirit does not have flesh and bones, as ye see me having. 40 And having said this, he displayed to them his hands and feet. 41 And while they still disbelieved from joy and wondering, he said to them, Have ye anything to eat here? 42 And they gave him a piece of a broiled fish and from a bees honeycomb. 43 And having taken it, he ate before them. 44 And he said to them, These are the words that I spoke to you while still being with you, that it is necessary for all things that are written in the law of Moses, and the prophets, and the psalms about me to be fulfulled. 45 Then he opened their mind to understand the scriptures. 46 And he said to them, Thus it is written, and thus it was necessary for the Christ to suffer, and to rise from the dead the third day, 47 and to proclaim in his name repentance and remission of sins for all the nations, having begun from Jerusalem. 48 And ye are witnesses of these things. 49 And behold, I send forth the promise of my Father upon you. But stay ye in the city until ye are clothed with power from on high. 50 And he led them outside as far as to Bethany, and having lifted up his hands, he blessed them. 51 And it came to pass while he blessed them, he parted from them, and was brought up into heaven. 52 And having worshiping him, they returned to Jerusalem with great joy, 53 and they were continually in the temple, praising and blessing God. Truly.

John 20:1-31

1 Now on the first day of the week Mary Magdalene comes early, while it was still darkness, to the sepulcher, and sees the stone taken away from the sepulcher. 2 Therefore she runs and comes to Simon Peter, and to the other disciple whom Jesus loved, and says to them, They have taken away the Lord out of the sepulcher, and we know not where they have laid him. 3 Peter therefore went forth, and the other disciple, and they went toward the sepulcher. 4 And the two men ran together, and the other disciple ran ahead quicker than Peter and came first to the sepulcher. 5 And after stooping down, he sees the linen cloths lying, yet he entered not. 6 Simon Peter therefore comes following him, and he entered into the sepulcher. And he sees the linen cloths lying, 7 and the face cloth that was on his head, not lying with the linen cloths, but wrapped up in one place separately. 8 Therefore then the other disciple who came first to the sepulcher, also entered in, and he saw and believed. 9 For they had not yet known the scripture that he must rise from the dead. 10 So the disciples departed again to themselves. 11 But Mary had stood outside near the sepulcher weeping. So, as she wept, she stooped down to the sepulcher. 12 And she sees two heavenly agents in white, sitting, one at the head and one at the feet, where the body of Jesus was lain. 13 And those men say to her, Woman, why weep thou? She says to them, Because they have taken away my Lord, and I know not where they have laid him. 14 And having said these things, she turned backward, and sees Jesus standing. And she had not known that it is Jesus. 15 Jesus says to her, Woman, why weep thou? Whom seek thou? That woman, supposing that he is the gardener, says to him, Sir, if thou have taken him, tell me where thou have laid him, and I will take him away. 16 Jesus says to her, Mary. After turning around, that woman says to him, Rabboni, which says, Teacher. 17 Jesus says to her, Do not touch me, for I have not yet ascended to my Father. But go to my brothers, and say to them, I ascend to my Father and your Father, and my God and your God. 18 Mary Magdalene comes informing the disciples that she has seen the Lord, and he spoke these things to her. 19 Therefore being evening that day, the first day of the week, and the doors having been shut where the disciples were who assembled because of fear of the Jews, Jesus came and stood in the midst, and says to them, Peace to you. 20 And having said this, he showed them his hands and side. His disciples therefore rejoiced when they saw the Lord. 21 Jesus therefore said to them again, Peace to you. As the Father has sent me, I also send you. 22 And after saying this, he breathed on them, and says to them, Receive ye Holy Spirit. 23 If ye forgive the sins of any, they are forgiven them. If ye retain of any, they are retained. 24 But Thomas, one of the twelve, called Didymus, was not with them when Jesus came. 25 The other disciples therefore said to him, We have seen the Lord. But he said to them, Unless I may see the mark of the nails in his hands, and put my finger into the mark of the nails, and put my hand into his side, I will, no, no 26 And after eight days his disciples were again inside, and Thomas with them. Jesus comes, the doors being shut, and stood in the midst, and said, Peace to you. 27 Then he says to Thomas, Bring thy finger here, and see my hands, and bring thy hand, and put into my side, and do not become faithless, but believing. 28 Thomas answered and said to him, My Lord and my God. 29 Jesus says to him, Because thou have seen me, thou have believed. Blessed are those who have not seen, and have believed. 30 And indeed therefore many other signs Jesus did in the presence of his disciples, which are not written in this book. 31 But these are written, so that ye may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that believing ye may have life in his name.

Exodus 12:16

16 And in the first day there shall be to you a holy convocation, and in the seventh day a holy convocation, no manner of work shall be done in them, except that which every man must eat, that only may be done by you.

1 Corinthians 16:2

2 Upon the first day of the week let each of you set something aside near himself, storing up whatever he may prosper, so that when I come no collections may be made then.
