Chapter One

Genesis

WHO

Adam, Eve, Cain, Abel, Noah, Abraham, Sarah, Isaac, Lot, Melchizedek, Jacob, Esau, Joseph, and many others.

WHERE

Genesis begins with the story of Adam and Eve. Their story takes place in the Garden of Eden. Other stories in Genesis take place in the parts of the world that today are called Iraq, Israel, and Egypt.

WHEN

Moses probably wrote this book between 1450-1410 BC while leading God's people to the Promised Land of Israel.

WHY

To tell about God's creation of the world and to show that God wants people to worship and obey him.

Then God looked over all he had made, and he saw that it was very good! GENESIS 1:31

Genesis answers questions like ... Where do animals come from? Why do people hurt each other? Where did different languages get started?

You'll learn a lot here about God, his creation, and the beginning of the human race.

This is where God's story begins!

CHAPTER 1 The Account of Creation 1

In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. 2 The earth was formless and empty, and darkness covered the deep waters. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the surface of the waters.

3 Then God said, "Letthere be light," and there was light. 4 And God saw that the light was good. Then he separated the light from the darkness. 5 God called the light "day" and the darkness "night."

And evening passed and morning came, marking the first day.

6 Then God said, "Let there be a space between the waters, to separate the waters of the heavens from the waters of the earth." 7 And that is what happened. God made this space to separate the waters of the earth from the waters of the heavens. 8 God called the space "sky."

And evening passed and morning came, marking the second day.

9 Then God said, "Let the waters beneath the sky flow together into one place, so dry ground may appear." And that is what happened. 10 God called the dry ground "land" and the waters "seas." And God saw that it was good. 11 Then God said, "Let the land sprout with vegetation-every sort of seed-bearing plant, and trees that grow seed-bearing fruit. These seeds will then produce the kinds of plants and trees from which they came." And that is what happened. 12 The land produced vegetation-all sorts of seed-bearing plants, and trees with seed-bearing fruit. Their seeds produced plants and trees of the same kind. And God saw that it was good.

13 And evening passed and morning came, marking the third day.

14 Then God said, "Let lights appear in the sky to separate the day from the night. Let them be signs to mark the seasons, days, and years. 15 Let these lights in the sky shine down on the earth." And that is what happened. 16 God made two great lights-the larger one to govern the day, and the smaller one to govern the night. He also made the stars. 17 God set these lights in the sky to light the earth, 18 to govern the day and night, and to separate the light from the darkness. And God saw that it was good.

19 And evening passed and morning came, marking the fourth day.

20 Then God said, "Let the waters swarm with fish and other life. Let the skies be filled with birds of every kind." 21 So God created great sea creatures and every living thing that scurries and swarms in the water, and every sort of bird-each producing offspring of the same kind. And God saw that it was good. 22 Then God blessed them, saying, "Be fruitful and multiply. Let the fish fill the seas, and let the birds multiply on the earth."

23 And evening passed and morning came, marking the fifth day.

24 Then God said, "Let the earth produce every sort of animal, each producing offspring of the same kind-livestock, small animals that scurry along the ground, and wild animals." And that is what happened. 25 God made all sorts of wild animals, livestock, and small animals, each able to produce offspring of the same kind. And God saw that it was good.

26 Then God said, "Let us make human beings in our image, to be like us. They will reign over the fish in the sea, the birds in the sky, the livestock, all the wild animals on the earth, and the small animals that scurry along the ground."

27 So God created human beings in his own image. In the image of God he created them; male and female he created them.

28 Then God blessed them and said, "Be fruitful and multiply. Fill the earth and govern it. Reign over the fish in the sea, the birds in the sky, and all the animals that scurry along the ground."

29 Then God said, "Look! I have given you every seed-bearing plant throughout the earth and all the fruit trees for your food. 30 And I have given every green plant as food for all the wild animals, the birds in the sky, and the small animals that scurry along the ground-everything that has life." And that is what happened.

31 Then God looked over all he had made, and he saw that it was very good! And evening passed and morning came, marking the sixth day.

CHAPTER 2

So the creation of the heavens and the earth and everything in them was completed. 2 On the seventh day God had finished his work of creation, so he rested from all his work. 3 And God blessed the seventh day and declared it holy, because it was the day when he rested from all his work of creation.

4 This is the account of the creation of the heavens and the earth.

The Man and Woman in Eden 2

When the Lord God made the earth and the heavens, 5 neither wild plants nor grains were growing on the earth. For the Lord God had not yet sent rain to water the earth, and there were no people to cultivate the soil. 6 Instead, springs came up from the ground and watered all the land. 7 Then the Lord God formed the man from the dust of the ground. He breathed the breath of life into the man's nostrils, and the man became a living person.

8 Then the Lord God planted a garden in Eden in the east, and there he placed the man He had made. 9 The Lord God made all sorts of trees grow up from the ground-trees that were beautiful and that produced delicious fruit. In the middle of the garden he placed the tree of life and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.

10 A river flowed from the land of Eden, watering the garden and then dividing into four branches. 11 The first branch, called the Pishon, flowed around the entire land of Havilah, where gold is found. 12 The gold of that land is exceptionally pure; aromatic resin and onyx stone a real so found there. 13 The second branch, called the Gihon, flowed around the entire land of Cush. 14 The third branch, called the Tigris, flowed east of the land of Asshur. The fourth branch is called the Euphrates.

15 The Lord God placed the man in the Garden of Eden to tend and watch over it. 16 But the Lord God warned him, "You may freely eat the fruit of every tree in the garden-17 except the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. If you eat its fruit, you are sure to die."

18 Then the Lord God said, "It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper who is just right for him." 19 So the Lord God formed from the ground all the wild animals and all the birds of the sky. He brought them to the man to see what he would call them, and the man chose a name for each one. 20 He gave names to all the livestock, all the birds of the sky, and all the wild animals. But still there was no helper just right for him.

21 So the Lord God caused the man to fall into a deep sleep. While the man slept, the Lord God took out one of the man's ribs and closed up the opening. 22 Then the Lord God made a woman from the rib, and he brought her to the man.

23 "At last!" the man exclaimed.

"This one is bone from my bone, and flesh from my flesh! She will be called 'woman,' because she was taken from 'man.'"

24 This explains why a man leaves his father and mother and is joined to his wife, and the two are united into one.

25 Now the man and his wife were both naked, but they felt no shame.

CHAPTER 3 The Man and Woman Sin 3

The serpent was the shrewdest of all the wild animals the Lord God had made. One day he asked the woman, "Did God really say you must not eat the fruit from any of the trees in the garden?"

2 "Of course we may eat fruit from the trees in the garden," the woman replied. 3 "It's only the fruit from the tree in the middle of the garden that we are not allowed to eat. God said, 'You must not eat it or even touch it; if you do, you will die.'"

4 "You won't die!" the serpent replied to the woman. 5 "God knows that your eyes will be opened as soon as you eat it, and you will be like God, knowing both good and evil."

6 The woman was convinced. She saw that the tree was beautiful and its fruit looked delicious, and she wanted the wisdom it would give her. So she took some of the fruit and ate it. Then she gave some to her husband, who was with her, and he ate it, too. 7 At that moment their eyes were opened, and they suddenly felt shame at their nakedness. So they sewed fig leaves together to cover themselves.

8 When the cool evening breezes were blowing, the man and his wife heard the Lord God walking about in the garden. So they hid from the Lord God among the trees. 9 Then the Lord God called to the man, "Where are you?"

10 He replied, "I heard you walking in the garden, so I hid. I was afraid because I was naked."

11 "Who told you that you were naked?" the Lord God asked. "Have you eaten from the tree whose fruit I commanded you not to eat?"

12 The man replied, "It was the woman you gave me who gave me the fruit, and I ate it."

13 Then the Lord God asked the woman, "What have you done?"

"The serpent deceived me," she replied. "That's why I ate it."

14 Then the Lord God said to the serpent,

"Because you have done this, you are cursed more than all animals, domestic and wild. You will crawl on your belly, groveling in the dust as long as you live.

15 And I will cause hostility between you and the woman, and between your offspring and her offspring. He will strike your head, and you will strike his heel."

16 Then he said to the woman,

"I will sharpen the pain of your pregnancy, and in pain you will give birth. And you will desire to control your husband, but he will rule over you."

17 And to the man he said,

"Since you listened to your wife and ate from the tree whose fruit I commanded you not to eat, the ground is cursed because of you. All your life you will struggle to scratch a living from it. 18 It will grow thorns and thistles for you, though you will eat of its grains. 19 By the sweat of your brow will you have food to eat until you return to the ground from which you were made. For you were made from dust, and to dust you will return."

Paradise Lost: God's Judgment

20 Then the man-Adam-named his wife Eve, because she would be the mother of all who live. 21 And the Lord God made clothing from animal skins for Adam and his wife.

22 Then the Lord God said, "Look, the human beings have become like us, knowing both good and evil. What if they reach out, take fruit from the tree of life, and eat it? Then they will live forever!" So the Lord God banished them from the Garden of Eden, and he sent Adam out to cultivate the ground from which he had been made. 24 After sending them out, the Lord God stationed mighty cherubim to the east of the Garden of Eden. And he placed a flaming sword that flashed back and forth to guard the way to the tree of life.

CHAPTER 4 Cain and Abel 4

Now Adam had sexual relations with his wife, Eve, and she became pregnant. When she gave birth to Cain, she said, "With the Lord's help, I have produced a man!" 2 Later she gave birth to his brother and named him Abel.

When they grew up, Abel became a shepherd, While Cain cultivated the ground. 3 When it was time for the harvest, Cain presented some of his crops as a gift to the Lord. 4 Abel also brought a gift-the best of the firstborn lambs from his flock. The Lord accepted Abel and his gift, 5 but he did not accept Cain and his gift. This made Cain very angry, and he looked dejected.

6 "Why are you so angry?" the Lord asked Cain. "Why do you look so dejected? 7 You will be accepted if you do what is right. But if you refuse to do what is right, then watch out! Sin is crouching at the door, eager to control you. But you must subdue it and be its master."

8 One day Cain suggested to his brother, "Let's go out into the fields." And while they were in the field, Cain attacked his brother, Abel, and killed him.

9 Afterward the Lord asked Cain, "Where is your brother? Where is Abel?"

"I don't know," Cain responded. "Am I my brother's guardian?"

10 But the Lord said, "What have you done? Listen! Your brother's blood cries out to me from the ground! 11 Now you are cursed and banished from the ground, which has swallowed your brother's blood. 12 No longer will the ground yield good crops for you, no matter how hard you work! From now on you will be a homeless wanderer on the earth."

13 Cain replied to the Lord, "My punishment is too great for me to bear! 14 You have banished me from the land and from your presence; you have made me a homeless wanderer. Anyone who finds me will kill me!"

15 The Lord replied, "No, for I will give a sevenfold punishment to anyone who kills you." Then the Lord put a mark on Cain to warn anyone who might try to kill him. 16 So Cain left the Lord's presence and settled in the land of Nod, east of Eden.

The Descendants of Cain

17 Cain had sexual relations with his wife, and she became pregnant and gave birth to Enoch. Then Cain founded a city, which he named Enoch, after his son. 18 Enoch had a son named Irad. Irad became the father of Mehujael. Mehujael became the father of Methushael. Methushael became the father of Lamech.

19 Lamech married two women. The first was named Adah, and the second was Zillah. 20 Adah gave birth to Jabal, who was the first of those who raise livestock and live in tents. 21 His brother's name was Jubal, the first of all who play the harp and flute. 22 Lamech's other wife, Zillah, gave birth to a son named Tubal-cain. He became an expert in forging tools of bronze and iron. Tubal-cain had a sister named Naamah. 23 One day Lamech said to his wives,

"Adah and Zillah, hear my voice; listen to me, you wives of Lamech. I have killed a man who attacked me, a young man who wounded me. 24 If someone who kills Cain is punished seven times, then the one who kills me will be punished seventy-seven times!"

The Birth of Seth

25 Adam had sexual relations with his wife again, and she gave birth to another son. She named him Seth, for she said, "God has granted me another son in place of Abel, whom Cain killed." 26 When Seth grew up, he had a son and named him Enosh. At that time people first began to worship the Lord by name.

CHAPTER 5 The Descendants of Adam 5

This is the written account of the descendants of Adam. When God created human beings, he made them to be like himself. 2 He created them male and female, and he blessed them and called them "human."

3 When Adam was 130 years old, he became the father of a son who was just like him-in his very image. He named his son Seth. 4 After the birth of Seth, Adam lived another 800 years, and he had other sons and daughters. 5 Adam lived 930 years, and then he died.

6 When Seth was 105 years old, he became the father of Enosh. 7 After the birth of Enosh, Seth lived another 807 years, and he had other sons and daughters. 8 Seth lived 912 years, and then he died.

9 When Enosh was 90 years old, he became the father of Kenan. 10 After the birth of Kenan, Enosh lived another 815 years, and he had other sons and daughters. 11 Enosh lived 905 years, and then he died.

12 When Kenan was 70 years old, he became the father of Mahalalel. 13 After the birth of Mahalalel, Kenan lived another 840 years, and he had other sons and daughters. 14 Kenan lived 910 years, and then he died.

15 When Mahalalel was 65 years old, he became the father of Jared. 16 After the birth of Jared, Mahalalel lived another 830 years, and he had other sons and daughters. 17 Mahalalel lived 895 years, and then he died.

    Girls Life Application Study Bible

    My Synopsis:

    Girls Life Application Study Bible, New Living Translation, 2nd edition

    The Girls Life Application Study Bible is unique because it was written for girls ages 11 and up. With a beautiful purple butterfly cover and designer page edges it will appeal to a girls sense of beauty and fashion, while also answering her questions about her faith and belief in God. It will teach her about following Jesus and how to love others.

    This Bible has many features that readers will love. There is a beautiful introduction to each book of the Bible, as well as memory verses, amazing facts, timelines, charts, 3-D maps and 16 pages of full color illustrations depicting how culture differed from today in Bible times. There are several short features throughout the text of this Bible that will benefit young girls.

    What Now? is a feature that will guide young girls through learning to make good choices and other real life situations.
    I survived is comprised of personal stories from older teens who have been where they are and know how they feel.
    At a Glance tells about famous women from the Bible, both good and bad and how they can influence their lives.
    Is it OK? lets them know exactly what the Bible says about certain questions that may come up.
    I'm Not the Only One lets them know they are not alone in things that have happened or feelings they may be having.

    There are several indexes in the back of the Bible to help readers find what they are looking for quickly and effectively. Another feature is The Greatest Stories Reading Plan which will help the reader, read through important sections of the Bible in a years time. There is also a section detailing God's Gift to the reader and how to accept it.

    The New Living Translation's motto is: The Truth Made Clear. It is easy to understand, using today's language and age appropriate wording. This translation was first done in 1996 and has become one of the most popular translations.

    My Thoughts:

    This is a Bible that I feel very comfortable recommending to my daughter who is 12. In fact I liked this Bible so well that I purchased another copy for my other daughter who will be turning 11 soon. I think that it is very important for Teens and Tween girls to have a Bible that they feel is easy to understand and easy to find things in. They are going through a very emotional time in their lives and having that reassurance that others have been their too is nice.

    Several of the features are just what my girls needed to have in a Bible just for them. I know that they have questions about things but aren't always comfortable asking and features like, Is it Ok? and I'm Not the Only One will help with that. The reading plan in the back of the Bible is perfect for young girls because they want to read the Bible but don't want to read all the genealogies and the specifications for the temple and that sort of thing, and this reading plan focuses on the great stories of the Bible and things that would be important in their spiritual lives.

    I was really impressed with how beautiful the cover and the page edging is on this Bible. They really found something that will appeal to the young girls heart and sense of fashion. Who wouldn't want to carry this great looking Bible?

    Beautiful Bible!

    Several weeks ago, my ten year old sister and I started doing a Bible study together (watch for an upcoming review of the book we use!). I decided to use my New Living Translation with her because it is often difficult for her to really grasp the meaning from the King James or even NIV. She read aloud the first chapter of Genesis from the NLT and could not stop talking about how easy it was to understand. Her being able to understand the Scriptures allowed us to talk about what she learned and how that applies to her life.

    When Tyndale sent me a copy of their Girl's Life Application Study Bible in NLT, I was delighted to give it to my sister and let her have her own copy of God's Word that is fun, relevant, and easy for her to understand. She was thrilled. As I handed her the box with the purple Bible and glittery butterfly, her eyes grew wide. She could hardly wait for Sunday so she could take it to church and show all her friends. I often walked past her room to see her reading her new Bible.

    When I asked her what her favorite things are about her new Bible, she gave me a long list of things! She loves that the NLT is easy for her to understand. In addition to that, though, the features of this study Bible bring light to the Word even more. Some of her favorite boxes are called, "I'm Not the Only One!" These sections and others like them allow preteen girls to realize they are not the only ones who face struggles. What an important lesson for these girls to learn during a crucial time in their life!

    My sister loves this Bible, and I have no doubts that the girls you know will as well.

    I was provided a free copy for review by Tyndale House Publishers.

    Finally the perfect Life Application Study Bible just for girls 11 and up!

    This isn't a Bible for little girls. It's a Bible created just for you! The image about shows the Bible in the pink packaging but it really is beautiful when you remove it. When you open it and lay it flat, the front and back cover makes wings for the butterfly while the body of it is on the spine of the book!

    This Girls Life Application Study Bible is a New Living Translation and is packed with real stories from tweens and teens just like you.

    The notes and features help you sort out answers to questions about belief in God, following Jesus, and loving others.

    * Special presentation page, purple ribbon marker and designer page edges.


    * Memory verses, Amazing Facts, book introductions, timelines, charts, three-dimensional maps, and 16 pages of full-color illustrations about Bible times.

    One of these Amazing Facts were "What slave was thrown into prison in a foreign country, only to become second-in-command of that country? Joseph, of course...Genesis 41:1-46"

    * What Now? - Real life situations that point you to Scripture so you can learn how to make good choices in tough times.

    An example of What Now? Talks about setbacks. Tamara and Jamie spent weeks working on their English project. Finally, they pulled everything together and made what Tamara thought was a fantastic poster. When Tamara walked into English class on their presentation day, she couldn't believe her eyes! Jamie looked horrified. "My little brother got into my room and 'colored' the poster." Tamara was close to tears. They couldn't turn in a scribbled-up poster! What do you think Tamara should do? Genesis 39:19-23 tells how Joseph handled setbacks.

    * I Survived! - Personal survival stories from older teens about how they made it through the situations that you face right now.


    * At A Glance - The lives of famous women in the Bible - both good and bad - become lessons for you!


    * Is It OK? - A reality check on what the Bible has to say about the questions on your mind.

    Is it OK if I want to spend time just chillin? There is nothing wrong with taking time off and relaxing. God took a break himself after creating the world. (see Genesis 2:2). But if there's a job to be done, it's best to finish that first. God honors our hard work, even if no one else does.

    I received this complimentary Bible from Tyndale Publishing Group to review and my youngest daughter fell in love with it. The purple, leather Bible cover with a beautiful butterfly stamped into the front and back of it makes it appealing to any girl looking for something more grown up.

    The information that is shared on every page is thought provoking and valid for girls 11 and up. Not only did she love it but I loved looking through it with her. The text was easy for her to understand in purple and pink font. What more could any girl want! This comes highly recommended from not only myself but with my daughter's stamp of approval as well. She couldn't wait to finish with her homework so she could begin looking through it. As a mom, I couldn't be happier to have her really want to pick up her Bible and read it!

    Your 'Tween Will Love This!

    Girls Life Application Study Bible, NLT, is designed especiallly for girls ages 11 and up. The leather like cover is purple and pink and embossed with a gorgeous multicolored butterfly. The page edges are purple and pink as well, and decorated in butterflies and flowers. Inside this dazzling package is the New Living Translation of the Holy Bible.

    This is a complete Bible in the protestant tradition of Bible translations from Genesis to Revelation. A dazzling variety of special features make this Bible unique:

    * multicolored text (black, purple and pink in various hues)
    * highly detailed maps and charts
    * life lessons
    * fast facts
    * simple yet jazzy line drawings
    * high gloss inserts with interesting/relevant info;
    * "What Now" questions for thought
    * memory verses
    * a topical index designed with a young girl's concerns in mind
    * indexes of all the special features

    One of my favorite features of Tyndale's, Girls Life Application Study Bible, is the book headings. Each book begins with an explanation of Who, What, When and Where. This feature also includes a key verse, a synopsis and a time line when applicable.

    Another of my favorite features is the "At a Glance" sidebar that provides an intriguing glimpse of specific women in the Bible and includes an invitation to read more.

    If you haven't already figured out my thoughts, I think this is a great Bible! There is a beautiful presentation page which makes this Bible perfect for gift giving. If you know a 'Tween Girl and want to enhance her Bible study, this book is the perfect gift.

    A Perfect Bible for Tweens and Teens!

    If you have a younger girl, or even a tween or teen, this would be the absolute perfect Bible for her! It is not only gorgeous purple on the outside it has a beautiful butterfly on it. The page edging is also a pink and purple beautiful color. Inside the Bible there are wonderful questions that young girls would ask, and they are outlined and answered in a wonderful way for being understood better.
    It shows many Biblical women throughout the Bible and their struggles and God's help to them. There are wonderful pictures in this Bible that show Biblical times making this Bible an interesting one for a young girl or teenager to have when she's headed out the door to church. Some other added bonuses to this Bible, are the trivia questions...wow!...makes studying the Bible really fun!...and also some real life stories from other amazing teens and how they came to Christ. I highly recommend this book to all the teens, tweens, and young girls alike!
