God’s Plan?7And unto Adam he said, Because thou hasthearkened unto the voice of thy wife, andhast eaten of the tree, of which Icommanded thee, saying, Thou shalt not eatof it: cursed is the ground for thy sake; insorrow shalt thou eat of it all the days of thylife; 18Thorns also and thistles shall it bringforth to thee; and thou shalt eat the herb ofthe field; 19In the sweat of thy face shaltthou eat bread, till thou return unto theground; for out of it wast thou taken: for dustthou art, and unto dust shalt thou return.
God’s Plan?20And Adam called his wifes name Eve;because she was the mother of allliving. 21Unto Adam also and to his wife didthe LORD God make coats of skins, andclothed them. 22And the LORD God said,Behold, the man is become as one of us, toknow good and evil: and now, lest he putforth his hand, and take also of the tree oflife, and eat, and live for ever:
God’s Plan?23Therefore the LORD God sent him forthfrom the garden of Eden, to till the groundfrom whence he was taken. 24So he droveout the man; and he placed at the east ofthe garden of Eden Cherubims, and aflaming sword which turned every way, tokeep the way of the tree of life.
RepentanceAnd God saw that the wickedness of manwas great in the earth, and that everyimagination of the thoughts of his heart wasonly evil continually. And it repented theLORD that he had made man on the earth,and it grieved him at his heart. And theLORD said, I will destroy man whom I havecreated from the face of the earth; bothman, and beast, and the creeping thing, andthe fowls of the air; for it repenteth me that Ihave made them. But Noah found grace inthe eyes of the LORD.
Angered9And the LORD said unto Moses, I haveseen this people, and, behold, it is astiffnecked people: 10Now therefore let mealone, that my wrath may wax hot againstthem, and that I may consume them: and Iwill make of thee a great nation. 11AndMoses besought the LORD his God, andsaid, LORD, why doth thy wrath wax hotagainst thy people, which thou hast broughtforth out of the land of Egypt with greatpower, and with a mighty hand?
Angered12Wherefore should the Egyptians speak,and say, For mischief did he bring them out,to slay them in the mountains, and toconsume them from the face of the earth?Turn from thy fierce wrath, and repent ofthis evil against thy people. 13RememberAbraham, Isaac, and Israel, thy servants, towhom thou swarest by thine own self, andsaidst unto them, I will multiply your seed asthe stars of heaven, and all this land that Ihave spoken of will I give unto your seed,and they shall inherit it for ever.
Angered14And the LORDrepented of the evilwhich he thought to dounto his people.

God’s Miracles11And it came to pass, as they fled frombefore Israel, and were in the going down toBethhoron, that the LORD cast down greatstones from heaven upon them unto Azekah,and they died: they were more which diedwith hailstones than they whom the childrenof Israel slew with the sword. 12Then spakeJoshua to the LORD in the day when theLORD delivered up the Amorites before thechildren of Israel, and he said in the sight ofIsrael, Sun, stand thou still upon Gibeon;and thou, Moon, in the valley of Ajalon.
God’s Miracles13And the sun stood still, and the moonstayed, until the people had avengedthemselves upon their enemies. Is not thiswritten in the book of Jasher? So the sunstood still in the midst of heaven, andhasted not to go down about a wholeday. 14And there was no day like thatbefore it or after it, that the LORDhearkened unto the voice of a man: for theLORD fought for Israel.
God’s Miracles10Neither murmur ye, as some ofthem also murmured, and weredestroyed of the destroyer. 11Nowall these things happened untothem for examples: and they arewritten for our admonition, uponwhom the ends of the world arecome. 12Wherefore let him thatthinketh he standeth take heed lesthe fall.
God’s Miracles 13There hath no temptation takenyou but such as is common to man:but God is faithful, who will notsuffer you to be tempted above thatye are able; but will with thetemptation also make a way toescape, that ye may be able tobear it. 14Wherefore, my dearlybeloved, flee from idolatry.
