The Genealogy of Jesus the Messiah
1 The record of the genealogy of Jesus the Messiah, a the son of David, the son of Abraham:
2 Abraham was the father of Isaac, Isaac the father of Jacob, and Jacob the father of Judah and his brothers. 3 Judah was the father of Perez and Zerah by Tamar, Perez was the father of Hezron and Hezron the father of Ram. 4 Ram was the father of Amminadab, Amminadab the father of Nahshon, and Nahshon the father of Salmon. 5 Salmon was the father of Boaz by Rahab, Boaz was the father of Obed by Ruth, and Obed the father of Jesse. 6 Jesse was the father of David the king.
David was the father of Solomon by Bathsheba who had been the wife of Uriah. 7 Solomon was the father of Rehoboam, Rehoboam the father of Abijah, and Abijah the father of Asa. 8 Asa was the father of Jehoshaphat, Jehoshaphat the father of Joram, and Joram the father of Uzziah. Uzziah was the father of Jotham, Jotham the father of Ahaz, and Ahaz the father of Hezekiah. 10 Hezekiah was the father of Manasseh, Manasseh the father of Amon, and Amon the father of Josiah. 11 Josiah became the father of Jeconiah and his brothers, at the time of the deportation to Babylon.
12 After the deportation to Babylon: Jeconiah became the father of Shealtiel, and Shealtiel the father of Zerubbabel. 13 Zerubbabel was the father of Abihud, Abihud the father of Eliakim, and Eliakim the father of Azor. 14 Azor was the father of Zadok, Zadok the father of Achim, and Achim the father of Eliud. 15 Eliud was the father of Eleazar, Eleazar the father of Matthan, and Matthan the father of Jacob. 16 Jacob was the father of Joseph the husband of Mary, by whom Jesus was born, who is called the Messiah.
17 So all the generations from Abraham to David are fourteen generations; from David to the deportation to Babylon, fourteen generations; and from the a deportation to Babylon to the Messiah, fourteen generations.
Conception and Birth of Jesus
18 Now the birth of Jesus Christ was as follows: when His mother Mary had been betrothed to Joseph, before they came together she was found to be with child by the Holy Spirit. 19 And Joseph her husband, being a righteous man and not wanting to disgrace her, planned to send her away secretly. 20 But when he had considered this, behold, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream, saying, "Joseph, son of David, do not be afraid to take Mary as your wife; for the Child who has been conceived in her is of the Holy Spirit. 21 "She will bear a Son; and you shall call His name Jesus, for He will save His people from their sins." 22 Now all this took place to fulfill what was spoken by the Lord through the prophet: 23 "Behold, the virgin shall be with child and shall bear a Son, and they shall call His name Immanuel," which translated means, "God with us." 24 And Joseph awoke from his sleep and did as the angel of the Lord commanded him, and took Mary as his wife, 25 but kept her a virgin until she a gave birth to a Son; and he called His name Jesus.
The Visit of the Magi
2 Now after Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea in the days of Herod the king, magi from the east arrived in Jerusalem, saying, 2 "Where is He who has been born a King of the Jews? For we saw His star in the east and have come to worship Him." 3 When Herod the king heard this, he was troubled, and all Jerusalem with him. 4 Gathering together all the chief priests and scribes of the people, he inquired of them where the Messiah was to be born. 5 They said to him, "In Bethlehem of Judea; for this is what has been written by the prophet:
6 'And you, Bethlehem, land of Judah, Are by no means least among the leaders of Judah; For out of you shall come forth a ruler Who will shepherd My people Israel.'"
7 Then Herod secretly called the magi and determined from them the exact time the star appeared. 8 And he sent them to Bethlehem and said, "Go and search carefully for the Child; and when you have found Him, report to me, so that I too may come and worship Him." 9 After hearing the king, they went their way; and the star, which they had seen in the east, went on before them until it came and stood over the place where the Child was. 10 When they saw the star, they rejoiced exceedingly with great joy.
7 Jesus said to him, "On the other hand, it is written, 'You shall not put the Lord your God to the test.'"
8 Again, the devil took Him to a very high mountain and showed Him all the kingdoms of the world and their glory; 9 and he said to Him, "All these things I will give You, if You fall down and worship me." 10 Then Jesus said to him, "Go, Satan! For it is written, 'You shall worship the Lord your God, and serve Him only.'" 11 Then the devil left Him; and behold, a angels came and began to minister to Him.
Jesus Begins His Ministry
12 Now when Jesus heard that a John had been taken into custody, He withdrew into Galilee; 13 and leaving Nazareth, He came and a settled in Capernaum, which is by the sea, in the region of Zebulun and Naphtali. 14 This was to fulfill what was spoken through Isaiah the prophet:
15 "The land of Zebulun and the land of Naphtali, By the way of the sea, beyond the Jordan, Galilee of the Gentiles- 16 "The people who were sitting in darkness saw a great Light, And those who were sitting in the land and shadow of death, Upon them a Light dawned."
17 a From that time Jesus began to preach and say, "Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand."
The First Disciples
18 Now as Jesus was walking by the Sea of Galilee, He saw two brothers, Simon who was called Peter, and Andrew his brother, casting a net into the sea; for they were fishermen. 19 And He said to them, "Follow Me, and I will make you fishers of men." 20 Immediately they left their nets and followed Him. 21 Going on from there He saw two other brothers, James the son of Zebedee, and John his brother, in the boat with Zebedee their father, mending their nets; and He called them. 22 Immediately they left the boat and their father, and followed Him.
Ministry in Galilee
23 Jesus was going a throughout all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues and proclaiming the gospel of the kingdom, and healing every kind of disease and every kind of sickness among the people.
24 The news about Him spread a throughout all Syria; and they brought to Him all who were ill, those suffering with various diseases and pains, demoniacs, epileptics, paralytics; and He healed them. 25 Large crowds a followed Him from Galilee and the Decapolis and Jerusalem and Judea and from beyond the Jordan.
The Sermon on the Mount; The Beatitudes
5 When Jesus saw the crowds, He went up on the mountain; and after He sat down, His disciples came to Him. 2 He opened His mouth and began to teach them, saying,
3 "Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
4 "Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted.
5 "Blessed are the gentle, for they shall inherit the earth.
6 "Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be satisfied.
7 "Blessed are the merciful, for they shall receive mercy.
8 "Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God.
9 "Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of God.
10 "Blessed are those who have been persecuted for the sake of righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
11 "Blessed are you when people insult you and persecute you, and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of Me. 12 "Rejoice and be glad, for your reward in heaven is great; for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you.
Disciples and the World
13 "You are the salt of the earth; but if the salt has become tasteless, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled under foot by men.
14 "You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden; 15 nor does anyone light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on the lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house. 16 "Let your light shine before men in such a way that they may a see your good works, and glorify your Father who is in heaven.
17 "Do not think that I came to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I did not come to abolish but to fulfill. 18 "For truly I say to you, until heaven and earth pass away, not the smallest letter or stroke shall pass from the Law until all is accomplished.

This is a Super nice and sleek looking Bible. So far, the leather and stitching seem to be good quality. The size is why I got it. It's almost the exact same dimensions as my Moleskine notebook, which I use to take notes in, so they compliment each other well. NASB reads a little choppier than NIV, but it's a more literal translation, which is why I selected this. If I were to go back in time and decide on a new Bible again, I'd still choose this one. Do it!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

I think that this thinline bible is a very nice option for someone who wants to bring their bible along and not want the bulk. Very pretty soft "leather" like cover, soft pink and brown. Nice ribbon marker and words of Christ in red.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

I new a few Hebrew words and the Hebrew alphabet when I bought this book - nothing else, and after finishing it I had translated passages from every book of the Old Testament. This book will take you a long way toward mastering the Hebrew language. The learning in the book, after lesson two, is done mainly through practice, which makes it a whole lot easier than simply trying to memorize long lists of words and forms. This is the PERFECT place to start learning Biblical Hebrew or strengthen the knowledge you already have!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

This little bible is quite likeable. It is made in China but well made and should prove durable for portable and home-study use, with bookshelf storage in between. (It comes with a nice window gift-box, too.). The pages read through a little, but not distractingly so. The type size is only eight-point, which is not my ideal readability size, but I make do with reading glasses. If you are new to the New American Standard Bible translation ("NASB"), you'll probably find that it is more rigorous to read than NIV, TNIV or NRSV; in fact, most readability studies put it slightly ahead of the ESV but behind NKJV. Most readers find, though, that its accuracy and tendency to literality make the reading experience worthwhile.
NASB bibles are plentiful, and cheaper than they were just a few years ago. I have to admit the selling point for me was the charm of the cover color scheme: the spine and about one-quarter of the cover space are in smooth chocolate brown, the remainder of the cover(s) in an appealingly creamy turquoise with a slight leather-look backcast to the grain....really about the best fake-leather I've ever seen. There's even a contrasting white saddle-stitch running vertically along the brown spine near its interior seam where it meets the turquoise part of the cover...and an echoing overcast along the turquoise: sharp-looking but probably not a construction necessity. The right outside flap of the front cover also carries a little tab in the chocolate color scheme, right in the middle; whether this is meant as an anti-stain guard or is a kind of vestigial remnant from an older snap-cover model, I can't say. But it adds to the snazzy appeal.
A real plus in this size bible is that the Concordance is excellent and marvelously detailed. The color maps in back are more than adequate. There's a white ribbon market and the page edges are "gilt," if that's the right world, in silvertone. If you can keep in mind that the whole shebang runs less than 1,100 pages and that this is a very personal bible of 8-point typeface, I think you'll be quite happy with it.
