|3 aIn seven days and seven nights,
4 Starting completely from scratch,
5 When everything was null and bvoid,
6 cAt the beginning.
7 And this was not all they believed,
8 For they also believed that they were descended directly from the first two people on earth,
9 Who were also dnot apes, but a man named eAdam and a rib named Eve,
10 Who started out living in a fparadise called the garden of Eden,
11 But got kicked out forever because gEve committed a great sin,
12 By eating an happle she got from a serpent,
13 iWhich turned out to be a bad apple,
14 jBecause the serpent was really the devil,
15 kAnd the apple was really the knowledge of lgood and mevil,
16 nWhich Eve should have left alone,
17 Because the apple turned out to be responsible for everything wrong in the world,
18 oIncluding the Curse,
19 pThe Mark of Cain,
20 qThe Whore of Babylon,
21 rThe Wrath of God,
22 sThe Day of Judgement,
23 tAnd much more besides,
24 uEspecially sin and guilt, which everyone is full of from birth,
25 vSo that there is no good and no peace of mind, except from the one God,
26 wWhose name is xYahweh,
||27 But isn't to be mentioned out loud,
28 By anyone.
29 Nor was this all they believed.
CHAPTER 31 yThey believed that God had Chosen them especially as his own tribe,
2 Like pets,
3 And given them all manner of special treatment,
4 Including great leaders like zAbraham,
5 Who tried to sacrifice his son aaIsaac because bbGod told him to,
6 Although God spared Isaac, because he was only cckidding about the sacrifice,
7 So that Isaac had sons of his own,
8 Who were ddJacob and eeEsau,
9 One of whom had a ffhairy birthright,
10 ggAnd something happened between them,
11 Something too complicated to remember.
12 Nor was this all they believed.
CHAPTER 41 hhThey believed that after getting Chosen as God's special tribe,
2 Their iiwisest leaders worked out a written contract with God,
3 Called a Covenant,
4 Which spelled everything out pretty clearly,
5 About who was supposed to do what.
6 For example, if jjGod yelled "Jump!" at the Chosen Tribe, they were supposed to ask, "How high?" and then get right to it,
