Chapter One

Genesis 1

The Beginning

1 In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. 2 Now the earth was form less and empty, dark ness 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 sep a rat ed the light from the dark ness. 5 God called the light "day," and the dark ness 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 sep a rate water from water." 7 So God made the vault and sep a rat ed 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 pro duce 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 sep a rate 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 sep a rate light from dark ness. 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 in crease in number and fill the water in the seas, and let the birds in crease on the earth." 23 And there was evening, and there was morning — the fifth day.

24 And God said, "Let the land pro duce living creatures according to their kinds: the live stock, 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 live stock according to their kinds, and all the creatures that move along the ground according to their kinds. And God saw that it was good.

24 For he has not despised or scorned the suffering of the afflicted one; he has not hidden his face from him but has listened to his cry for help.

25 From you comes the theme of my praise in the great assembly; before those who fear you a I will fulfill my vows. 26 The poor will eat and be satisfied; those who seek the Lord will praise him — may your hearts live forever!

27 All the ends of the earth will remember and turn to the Lord, and all the families of the nations will bow down before him, 28 for dominion belongs to the Lord and he rules over the nations.

29 All the rich of the earth will feast and worship; all who go down to the dust will kneel before him — those who cannot keep themselves alive. 30 Posterity will serve him; future generations will be told about the Lord. 31 They will proclaim his righteousness, declaring to a people yet unborn: He has done it!

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, b 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.

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

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.

Really good for girls. Sometimes freezes my nook, but other wise OK.

Yesterday I reviewed the NIV Boys Bible (click here) and today I'm reviewing the FaithGirlz! Bible which is a whole different book. Yes, ZonderKidz took the same NIV version and created a Bible just for girls. I believe that God made each of us for particular reasons just as He made boys and girls very different. Boys NEED to be rough and noisy, gross and nerdy - Girls NEED to be ladies, cherished, Daddy's princess and Mommy's helper. They may be Tom Boys but there is a reason God made them that way and the FaithGirlz Bible is going to help them come to terms with WHO they are in God's eyes and WHY God made them the way he did.The Faithgirlz Bible teaches girls that the Bible is real, relevant & that the story of God & the Isrealites is their story too. The in-text features are written by tween expert Nancy Rue and uses the bestselling New International Version (NIV) to make it easy to read and understand.One of the differences you'll notice in the FaithGirlz Bible is that this Bible is more intellectual than the Boys Bible is. This Bible causes you to dig down deep - not just in scripture but into your thoughts and soul. You'll see sections like:Dream Girl - use your imagination to put yourself in the story.Bring It On! - Take quizzes to really get to know yourself.Is there a Little (Eve, Ruth, Isaiah) in You? See for yourself what you have in common.Words to Live By - Bible Verses for memorizing.What Happens Next? Tell a Bible Story in your own words.I LOVE this feature: (I'm going to try to write up an example so you can see what it looks like - I couldn't find an example on Nancy Rue's website - so here goes) - Pls keep in mind the spacing is awful and nowhere as neat as the one in the Bible - but you'll get the idea!

What more could a girls love than a pink Bible designed with her unique needs in mind? Zondervan Publishing has created a beautiful Bible with girls 9-13 in mind. Every girl wants to know that she's totally unique and special, and contributor Nancy Rue helps them do just that in the revised edition of the NIV Faithgirlz Bible. As a leading tween expert, Rue teaches girls that the Bible is real and relevant and, best of all, that the story of God and His people is also their story. Girls can now grow closer to God as they discover the journey of a lifetime, in their language, for their world.The new Faithgirlz! Bible was developed especially for girls ages 9 to 12. Everything in it is written with a tween girl¿s experience in mind, and it features the most popular Bible translation in the world, the New International Version. The features explain hard-to-understand things in the Bible and guide girls to put the Scripture to work in their own lives. The Faithgirlz! Bible focuses on sharing faith with friends and gives real ways for girls to do that.Each book of the Bible has activities that make God¿s Word more relevant than ever. And, of course, because it was developed for Faithgirlz! readers, they can expect to find it jam-packed with customized content and artwork that really makes the Bible stand out. Girls will love the cool design, the interactive features and the feeling of knowing that God¿s Word is there for them whenever they need it. Some of the features included are: Book Introductions¿Girls will read the who, when, where and what of each book of the Bible. Dream Girl¿Girls will use their imaginations to put themselves in the story. Is There a Little (Eve, Ruth, Isaiah) in You?¿Girls will see for themselves what they have in common with women of the Bible. Words to Live By¿Girls will discover great Bible verses for memorizing. Oh, I Get It!¿Girls will find answers to Bible questions they¿ve wondered about. Nancy Rue says, ¿I hope the Faithgirlz! Bible will help girls grow a friendship with the Bible, their own relationship. It asks questions, asks them to think and challenges them to apply what they¿re learning. That¿s how they¿ll find a deep, personal relationship with God, rather than just by following rules or saying what they¿ve been told without really thinking about it. Rules are important, of course, but they only make sense when they really believe the message of the Scriptures. That¿s what this Bible is about.¿ The Faithgirlz! Bible is the perfect Bible to support girls in their journey into the ¿beauty of believing.¿I received the Faithgirlz Bible compliments of B & B Media Group for my honest review and the minute it came in the mail, my teenage daughter immediately snapped this up. A great sign that just the cover alone speaks volumes to her. Not only that, she asked if she got to keep it and I said yes, to much squeals of delight. Now this is part of our morning devotionals and she can't wait to share some of the insights that are included inside. It makes for a great conversation between mother and daughter while understanding and learning more about God's Word especially in the life of our daughters. I rate this one a 5 out of 5 stars and highly recommend it if your looking for a beautiful Teen Bible for your daughter!
