Chapter One

Genesis

The Beginning

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

3 And God said, "Let there be light," and there was light. 4 God saw that the light was good, and he separated the light from the darkness 5 God called the light "day," and the darkness he called "night" And there was evening, and there was morning—the first day.

6 And God said, "Let there be a vault between the waters to separate water from water." 7 So God made the vault and separated the water under the vault from the water above it And it was so 8 God called the vault "sky." And there was evening, and there was morning—the second day.

9 And God said, "Let the water under the sky be gathered to one place, and let dry ground appear" And it was so 10 God called the dry ground "land," and the gathered waters he called "seas." And God saw that it was good.

11 Then God said, "Let the land produce vegetation: seed-bearing plants and trees on the land that bear fruit with seed in it, according to their various kinds" And it was so 12 The land produced vegetation: plants bearing seed according to their kinds and trees bearing fruit with seed in it according to their kinds. And God saw that it was good. 13 And there was evening, and there was morning—the third day.

14 And God said, "Let there be lights in the vault of the sky to separate the day from the night, and let them serve as signs to mark sacred times, and days and years, 15 and let them be lights in the vault of the sky to give light on the earth." And it was so. 16 God made two great lights—the greater light to govern the day and the lesser light to govern the night He also made the stars 17 God set them in the vault of the sky to give light on the earth, 18 to govern the day and the night, and to separate light from darkness And God saw that it was good 19 And there was evening, and there was morning—the fourth day.

20 And God said, "Let the water teem with living creatures, and let birds fly above the earth across the vault of the sky." 21 So God created the great creatures of the sea and every living thing with which the water teems and that moves about in it, according to their kinds, and every winged bird according to its kind And God saw that it was good. 22 God blessed them and said, "Be fruitful and increase in number and fill the water in the seas, and let the birds increase on the earth." 23 And there was evening, and there was morning—the fifth day.

24 And God said, "Let the land produce living creatures according to their kinds: the livestock, the creatures that move along the ground, and the wild animals, each according to its kind." And it was so. 25 God made the wild animals according to their kinds, the livestock according to their kinds, and all the creatures that move along the ground according to their kinds And God saw that it was good.

26 Then God said, "Let us make mankind in our image, in our likeness, so that they may rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky, over the livestock and all the wild animals, and over all the creatures that move along the ground."

PSALM 22:28

Psalm 23

A psalm of David.

1 The Lord is my shepherd, I lack nothing. 2 He makes me lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside quiet waters, 3 he refreshes my soul. He guides me along the right paths for his name's sake. 4 Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me.

5 You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies. You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows. 6 Surely your goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.

Psalm 24

Of David. A psalm.

1 The earth is the Lord's, and everything in it, the world, and all who live in it; 2 for he founded it on the seas and established it on the waters. 3 Who may ascend the mountain of the Lord? Who may stand in his holy place? 4 The one who has clean hands and a pure heart, who does not trust in an idol or swear by a false god.

5 They will receive blessing from the Lord and vindication from God their Savior. 6 Such is the generation of those who seek him, who seek your face, God of Jacob.

7 Lift up your heads, you gates; be lifted up, you ancient doors, that the King of glory may come in. 8 Who is this King of glory? The Lord strong and mighty, the Lord mighty in battle. 9 Lift up your heads, you gates; lift them up, you ancient doors, that the King of glory may come in. 10 Who is he, this King of glory? The Lord Almighty — he is the King of glory.

Psalm 25

Of David.

1 In you, Lord my God, I put my trust. 2 I trust in you; do not let me be put to shame, nor let my enemies triumph over me. 3 No one who hopes in you will ever be put to shame, but shame will come on those who are treacherous without cause.

4 Show me your ways, Lord, teach me your paths. 5 Guide me in your truth and teach me, for you are God my Savior, and my hope is in you all day long. 6 Remember, Lord, your great mercy and love, for they are from of old.

MATTHEW 4:18

Jesus Calls His First Disciples

18 As Jesus was walking beside the Sea of Galilee, he saw two brothers, Simon called Peter and his brother Andrew. They were casting a net into the lake, for they were fishermen. 19 "Come, follow me," Jesus said, "and I will send you out to fish for people." 20 At once they left their nets and followed him.

21 Going on from there, he saw two other brothers, James son of Zebedee and his brother John. They were in a boat with their father Zebedee, preparing their nets. Jesus called them, 22 and immediately they left the boat and their father and followed him.

Jesus Heals the Sick

23 Jesus went throughout Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, proclaiming the good news of the kingdom, and healing every disease and sickness among the people. 24 News about him spread all over Syria, and people brought to him all who were ill with various diseases, those suffering severe pain, the demon-possessed, those having seizures, and the paralyzed; and he healed them. 25 Large crowds from Galilee, the Decapolis, Jerusalem, Judea and the region across the Jordan followed him.

Introduction to the Sermon on the Mount

5 Now when Jesus saw the crowds, he went up on a mountainside and sat down. His disciples came to him, 2 and he began to teach them.

The Beatitudes

He said:

3 "Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. 4 Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted. 5 Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the earth. 6 Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled. 7 Blessed are the merciful, for they will be shown mercy. 8 Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God. 9 Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God. 10 Blessed are those who are persecuted because of righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

11 "Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of me. 12 Rejoice and be glad, because great is your reward in heaven, for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you.

Salt and Light

13 "You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled underfoot.

14 "You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. 15 Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. 16 In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.

The Fulfillment of the Law

17 "Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them. 18 For truly I tell you, until heaven and earth disappear, not the smallest letter, not the least stroke of a pen, will by any means disappear from the Law until everything is accomplished. 19 Therefore anyone who sets aside one of the least of these commands and teaches others accordingly will be called least in the kingdom of heaven, but whoever practices and teaches these commands will be called great in the kingdom of heaven. 20 For I tell you that unless your righteousness surpasses that of the Pharisees and the teachers of the law, you will certainly not enter the kingdom of heaven.

    Great Navigation!

    I have a Nookcolor and the touch navigation of this Bible is easy. The footnotes are numbered and when you touch the number it linked you right to the footnote. Then touch the number from the footnote and it returns you to where you were reading. The SAMPLE of this Bible did not navigate as well, but I decided to buy it anyway. I am so glad I did. The navigation is great.

    New NIV, Great eBook

    I'm not sure if the other reviewers are just not familiar with how a typical eBook works, but the navigation seems OK to me. It is a very long book, so one has to take that into consideration when loading it up for the first time. let it load and then it's pretty snappy. Love the NIV!

    Rip Off

    Who ever did the software for this did not understand ereaders! I am not rateing the bible, just this soft version. Very slow to load, navigate, and use. I love the NIV version, but not this one. It takes 3 minutes to change from one book to another making it impossible to keep up with a study group or church readings. Some times it freezes up or won't turn the page for 30-45 sec. If you just want to read from the beginning to the end one page at a time, it is ok, but forget it for a study bible. I don't know how this got such a high review, wish I had read these ratings before I bought. The american standard version works fine on my reader, but is hard to understand at times.

    A Truly Accurate, Modern Translation

    This fresh version of the NIV is the only translation to use modern linguistic research and Greek/Hebrew lexical analysis in order to provide the most accurate translation that's also the most readable in the English language. Not to mention, unlike other translations, it is translated by a committee that has no ties to the copyright holder (Biblica) or publisher (Zondervan), ensuring an agenda-free translation. 

    If you've been waiting for a translation that is the optimum combination of accuracy and readability, the wait is over. The new NIV is here.

    Harder to use than expected

    I just tried to navigate the sample downloaded to my monochrome Nook and I find a couple of areas that either require learning on my part or improvement in the product....my guess is that it could be either!

    In the sample, when you're reading a page in the middle of a book/chapter, there's no easy way to figure out exactly WHERE you are currently viewing in the Bible....only a page number which is hardly instructive.

    Secondly, and equally important, it's far from intuitive how you navigate to a specific book/chapter and verse, since search in the form of "book-name chapter:verse" always returns "not found".

    I'd surely buy it in a heartbeat, but it MUST be usable in real life, not just a nice product on the inventory list.

    If you are undecided...don't.

    I downloaded the sample and based on that the navigation is wanting. The way the books and chapters are listed out is frustrating. For instance if you would like to get to the first chapter in Exodus you have to click through several chapters of Genesis before you can select Ex 1.

    The ESV which is currently free for the Nook solves this by listing the Book titles in the Chapter navigation. Once you select the book you want you are taken to the first page of that book and the biblical book's chapters are listed out. Much better.

    The ESV is a stronger English version with better navigation and it's free. No brainer.

    Awesome Bible eBook!

    WOW! This is an AMAZING Bible eBook! The "free sample" is a poor representation of this nookbook because it only takes the first 10 percent of the eBook (which is just all the links to the different chapters of the Bible, not the actual Bible text). Seriously, purchase the entire product! The footnote linking is awesome and SO easy to use! On the nook Color, this Bible looks great! Wonderful translation, great numbered footnote linking, an overal great product. HIGHLY recomended!

    For those who said the words of Christ are not in red, I have the solution. Mine was not either and I went to my local B&N store. the gentleman helped me. Open the book and tap the bottom where the page numbers and up arrow for navigating. Click on the text and at the bottom if Publisher Default is not on, click to turn it on. When he did this on my nook, the red words appeared!!

    DO NOT BUY!

    I should have read the reviews before I bought this book. I'm also having problems navigating the book. It will not navigate except to turn one page at a time from front to back. It also still says sample on the cover. What a wast of $9.99.

    Do NOT download this Bible

    I just downloaded this Bible and have had nothing but problems with it. It shuts down unexpectedly, the table of contects feature on you device will not load the table of contects, you have to bookmake the book's table of content and use that to navigate, some of the chapters in the table of contects open and some do not, do not even try to bookmake any books in this Bible past Genesis because not only will it not bookmark, it will freeze up and you have to shut the book down and restart it again. And you cannot get a refund?? Please save you $9.99 and download another Bible than this one

    Decent

    Dissapointed with the navigation like everyone else, but it's an eBook, not an app; read it like a book. I am too used to using the bible on my phone that I didn't like it at first. However, I warmed up to it. The Lord is good even if the navigation isn't.

    The best thing to do

    THE BEST WAY to get the bible on your nook is to get the Tercata (or sommething like that) app. The KJV is free right now. If you buy it, you can get every version imaginable over wifi. It is extremely user friendly for skipping around during sermons.

    I Also Recommend:

    DO NOT BUY--Absolutely Dreadful!!!

    I cannot open it and when I do it freezes my NOOK! It is difficult to navigate and definitely NOT WORTH the steep price! I bought "The Bible" by KING JAMES VERSION (link at bottom) afterwards and it works much better: its cheaper (99 cents), easy to navigate, and doesn't freeze the NOOK or disappear randomly.

    The Words Are Great Of Course But Not the Quality of the eBook

    I didn't pick this version out, my mother did, but it is very disappointing.
    First of all, you have to wait a minute or two for it to load, which can be very aggervating, especially when you are first figuring out how to use it.
    The contents system was not very well thought out either. When I first got this, the entire content was all one thing. Thankfully it's not like that anymore. My sister use to have a Nook Bible where you could select the verse and chapter and book instead of just chapter. Much better system if you ask me.
    Plus some of the verses are different than they are in my printed NIV Bible. There's more subtitles and the wording is different on this one. It could just be a slightly different translation or something, but if anyone ever gets a hold of the publisher, it says in Revelation that changing the Bible in any way shape or form is a sin and will be taken into account on Judgement Day.

    Niv

    Did you know there are verses missing out of this bible Luke 17:36 is one verse! This verse says Two men shall be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left. This verse is written in red and yet it was left out. Revelation 19 says And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book. I am a 22 year old women and i am not trying to push my belief on anyone i just wanted to let you know so that you would know the truth.
