Yf thou do suche thynges, shewe thy selfe to the worlde 5 For his brethren beleued not in hym 6 Then Iesus sayde vnto them, My tyme is not yet come: but your tyme is alway redy 7 The worlde can not hate you, but me it hateth, because I testifie of it, that the workes therof are euyll 8 Go ye vp vnto this feast: I wyll not go vp yet vnto this feast, for my tyme is not yet full come 9 When he had saide these wordes vnto them, he abode styll in Galilee 10 But assoone as his brethre were gone vp, then went he also vp vnto the feaste, not openly, but as it were priuilie 11 Then sought hym the Iewes at the feaste, and sayde, where is he 12 And much murmuryng of hym was there among the people: For some said, he is good: other sayde, nay, but he deceaueth the people 13 Howebeit, no man spake openlye of hym, for feare of the Iewes 14 Nowe when halfe of the feast was done, Iesus went vp into the temple, and taught 15 And the Iewes marueyled, saying: howe knoweth he the scriptures, seyng that he neuer learned 16 Iesus aunswered them, & sayde: My doctrine is not myne, but his yt sent me 17 Yf any man wyll do his wyll, he shall knowe of the doctrine, whether it be of God, or whether I speake of my selfe 18 He that speaketh of hym selfe, seketh his owne praise: But he that seketh his praise that sent hym, the same is true, & no vnryghteousnes is in hym 19 Dyd not Moyses geue you a lawe, & [yet] none of you kepeth the lawe? Why go ye about to kyll me 20 The people aunswered and sayde: Thou hast the deuyll, who goeth about to kyll thee 21 Iesus aunswered, & said vnto the: I haue done one worke, & ye al marueyle 22 Moyses therefore gaue vnto you the circumcisio (not because it is of Moyses, but of the fathers) And yet ye on the Sabboth day, circumcise a man 23 Yf a man on the Sabboth day receaue circumcision, without breakyng of the lawe of Moyses: disdayne ye at me, because I haue made a man euerywhyt whole on the Sabboth day 24 Iudge not after the [vtter] appearaunce, but iudge with a ryghteous iudgement

1 Peter 4:1-19

1 For as muche then as Christ hath suffered for vs in the fleshe, arme ye your selues lykewise with the same mynde: for he which suffereth in the fleshe, ceasseth from sinne 2 That he hence forwarde shoulde lyue, as much tyme as remayneth in ye fleshe, not after the lustes of men, but after the wyll of God 3 For it is sufficient for vs that we haue spent the tyme that is paste of the lyfe, after the wyll of the gentiles, walkyng in wantonnesse, lustes, in excesse of wynes, in excesse of eatyng, in excesse of drynkyng, and abominable idolatrie 4 And it seemeth to them an inconuenient thyng, that ye runne not also with them vnto the same excesse of riote, and therefore speake they euyll of you 5 Whiche shall geue accomptes to hym that is redy to iudge quicke and dead 6 For vnto this purpose veryly was the Gospel peached also vnto ye dead, that they shoulde be iudged lyke other men in the fleshe, but should lyue before God in the spirite 7 The ende of all thynges is at hande. Be ye therefore sober, and watche vnto prayer 8 But aboue all thynges, haue feruent loue among your selues: For loue shall couer the multitude of sinnes 9 Be ye harberous one to another, without grudgyng 10 As euery man hath receaued the gyft, eue so minister the same one to another, as good ministers of the manifold grace of God 11 If any man speake, [let hym talke] as the wordes of God. If any man minister, let him do it as of the abilitie which God ministreth vnto hym, that God in all thinges may be glorified through Iesus Christe, to whom be prayse and dominion for euer and euer. Amen 12 Dearely beloued, thinke it not straunge concerning the fierie triall, which thing is to trye you, as though some straunge thyng happened vnto you 13 But reioyce, in as much as ye are partakers of Christes passions: that when his glory appeareth, ye maye be mery and glad 14 Yf ye be rayled vpon for the name of Christe, happy are ye. For the spirite of glory and of God, resteth vpon you: On their part he is euyll spoken of, but on your part he is glorified 15 See that none of you be punished as a murtherer, or as a thiefe, or an euyll doer, or as a busie body in other mens matters 16 Yf any [man suffer] as a Christian man, let hym not be ashamed, but let him glorifie God on this behalfe 17 For the tyme is [come] that iudgement must begin at the house of God. Yf it first [begin] at vs, what shall the ende be of them whiche beleue not the Gospell of God 18 And if the ryghteous scacely be saued, where shall the vngodly and the sinner appeare 19 Wherefore, let them that are troubled accordyng to the wyll of God, commit their soules to him with well doyng, as vnto a faythfull creatour

1 Moreouer my brethren, reioyce ye in the Lord. It greeueth me not to write the same thyng often to you, for to you it is a sure thyng 2 Beware of dogges, beware of euyll workers, beware of concision 3 For we are the circumcision, which worship God in the spirite, and reioyce in Christ Iesus, and haue no confidence in the fleshe 4 Though I might also haue confidence in the fleshe. If any other man thinketh that he hath wherof he myght trust in the fleshe, more I 5 Circumcised the eyght day, of the kinred of Israel, of the tribe of Beniamin, an Ebrue of the Ebrues, after the lawe a pharisee 6 Concernyng feruentnesse, persecutyng the Churche: touchyng ye righteousnesse which is in ye lawe, I was blamelesse 7 But the thynges that were vauntage vnto me, those I counted losse for Christes sake 8 Yea, I thynke all thynges but losse, for the excellencie of the knowledge of Christe Iesus my Lorde: For whom I haue counted all thyng losse, & do iudge the but vile, that I may winne Christe 9 And be founde in hym, not hauyng myne owne ryghteousnesse which is of the lawe: but that which is through the fayth of Christ, the ryghteousnes which commeth of God through fayth 10 That I may knowe hym, and the power of his resurrection, and the felowshippe of his passions, confirmable vnto his death 11 If by any meanes, I myght attayne vnto the resurrection of the dead 12 Not as though I had alredy attayned, either were alredy perfect: but I folowe, yf that I may comprehende, wherein also I am comprehended of Christe Iesus 13 Brethren I count not my selfe as yet that I haue attained: but this one thing [I say] I forget those thinges which are behynde, and endeuour my selfe vnto those thynges which are before 14 And I prease towarde the marke, for the price of the hye callyng of God in Christe Iesus 15 Let vs therfore as many as be perfect, be thus mynded, and if ye be otherwyse mynded, God shall reueale the same also vnto you 16 Neuerthelesse, vnto that which we haue attayned vnto, let vs proceade by one rule, that we may be of one accorde 17 Brethren, be folowers together of me, and loke on them which walke so as ye haue vs for an ensample 18 For many walke, of whom I haue tolde you often, & nowe tel you wepyng, [that they are] the enemies of the crosse of Christe 19 Whose ende [is] dampnation, whose God [is their] belly, and glorie to their shame, which mynde earthly thynges 20 But our conuersation is in heauen, from whence also we loke for the sauiour, the Lorde Iesus Christe 21 Who shall chaunge our vyle body, that it may be fashioned lyke vnto his glorious body, according to the working wherby he is able to subdue all thynges vnto hym selfe

For I haue learned, in whatsoeuer estate I am, therwith to be content 12 I knowe howe to be lowe, and I knowe howe to exceade. Euery where & in all thynges I am instructed, both to be ful, and to be hungry, both to haue plentie, and to suffer neede 13 I can do all thynges through Christe, which strengtheneth me 14 Notwithstandyng, ye haue well done yt ye dyd communicate to my afflictions 15 Ye Philippians knowe also, that in the begynnyng of the Gospell, when I departed fro Macedonia, no Church communicated to me, as concernyng geuyng and receauyng, but ye only 16 For euen in Thessalonica, ye sent once, & afterward agayne vnto my necessitie 17 Not that I desire a gyft, but I desire fruite aboundyng to your accompt 18 But I haue receaued al, & haue plentie. I was euen fylled after that I had receaued of Epaphroditus the thynges [which were sent] from you, an odoure of a sweete smel, a sacrifice acceptable, plesaunt to God 19 My God shall supplie all your neede, through his riches in glorie, in Christe Iesus 20 Unto God and our father, be prayse for euermore. Amen 21 Salute all the saintes in Christe Iesus. The brethren which are with me, greete you 22 All the saintes salute you, most of all, they that are of Caesars housholde 23 The grace of our Lorde Iesu Christe [be] with you all. Amen

And hym that taketh away thy cloke, forbyd not to take thy coate also 30 Geue to euery man that asketh of thee: And of hym that taketh away thy goodes, aske them not agayne 31 And as ye woulde that men shoulde do to you, do ye also to them lykewyse 32 For yf ye loue them which loue you, what thanke haue ye? For sinners also loue their louers 33 And yf ye do good for them which do good for you, what thanke haue ye? For sinners also do euen the same 34 And yf ye lende to them, of whom ye hope to receaue, what thanke haue ye? For synners also lende to sinners, to receaue such lyke agayne 35 But loue ye your enemies, & do good, and lende, lokyng for nothyng agayne: and your rewarde shalbe great, and ye shalbe the chyldren of the hyest: for he is kynde vnto the vnkynde, & to the euyll 36 Be ye therfore mercifull, as your father also is mercifull 37 Iudge not, & ye shall not be iudged: Condemne not, and ye shall not be condemned: Forgeue, & ye shalbe forgeuen 38 Geue, and it shalbe geuen vnto you: good measure, pressed downe, & shaken together, and runnyng ouer, shall men geue into your bosomes.

Do they not both fall into the ditche 40 The disciple is not aboue his maister: But whosoeuer wylbe a perfect disciple, shalbe as his maister is 41 And why seest thou a moate in thy brothers eye: but considerest not the beame that is in thyne owne eye 42 Either, howe canst thou say to thy brother: Brother, let me pull out the moate that is in thyne eye, when thou seest not the beame that is in thyne owne eye? Thou hypocrite, caste out the beame out of thyne owne eye first, & then shalt thou see perfectly, to pul out the moate that is in thy brothers eye 43 For it is not a good tree, that bryngeth foorth euyll fruite: Neither is that an euyll tree, that bryngeth foorth good fruite 44 For euery tree is knowen by his fruite: for of thornes do not me gather fygges, nor of busshes, gather they grapes 45 A good man, out of the good treasure of his heart, bringeth foorth that which is good: And an euyll man, out of the euyll treasure of his heart, bryngeth foorth that which is euyll.
