Exodus 20:1-26

1 And the LORDE spake all these wordes, and sayde: 2 I am the LORDE thy God, which haue brought the out of the londe of Egipte from ye house of bondage. 3 Thou shalt haue none other Goddes in my sight. 4 Thou shalt make the no grauen ymage ner eny symilitude, nether of it that is aboue in heauen, ner of it that is beneth vpon earth, ner of it that is in the water vnder the earth. 5 Worshipe them not, and serue them not: for I the LORDE thy God am a gelouse God, vysitinge ye synne of the fathers vpon the children, vnto ye thirde and fourth generacion, of them that hate me: 6 And do mercye vpo many thousandes, that loue me, and kepe my commaundementes. 7 Thou shalt not take the name of ye LORDE thy God in vayne. For the LORDE shal not holde him vngiltie, that taketh his name in vayne. 8 Remembre the Sabbath daie, that thou sanctifie it. 9 Sixe dayes shalt thou laboure and do all thy worke: 10 But vpon the seuenth daye is the Sabbath of the LORDE thy God: thou shalt do no maner worke in it, nether thou, ner thy sonne, ner thy doughter, ner thy seruaunt, ner thy mayde, ner thy catell, ner thy straunger that is within thy gates. 11 For in sixe dayes the LORDE made heauen and earth, and the see, and all that therin is, and rested vpon the seuenth daye: therfore the LORDE blessed the seuenth daye, & halowed it. 12 Honoure thy father and thy mother, that thou mayest lyue longe in the londe, which the LORDE thy God shal geue the. 13 Thou shalt not kyll. 14 Thou shalt not breake wedlocke. 15 Thou shalt not steale. 16 Thou shalt beare no false wytnesse agaynst thy neghboure. 17 Thou shalt not lust after yi neghbours house. Thou shalt not lust after thy neghbours wife, ner his seruaut, ner his mayde, ner his oxe, ner his Asse, ner all that thy neghboure hath 18 And all the people sawe the thonder and the lightenynge, and the noyse of the trompet, and how that the mountayne smoked, and were afrayed, and stackerd, & stode afarre of, 19 and sayde vnto Moses: Talke thou with vs, we wil heare: and let not God talke with vs, we might els dye. 20 And Moses sayde vnto the people: Be not afrayed, for God is come to proue you, and that his feare maye be before youre eyes, yt ye synne not. 21 And the people stode afarre of. But Moses gat him in to the darcke cloude, where in God was. 22 And the LORDE spake vnto him: Thus shalt thou saye vnto the children of Israel: Ye haue sene, that I haue talked wt you from heauen: 23 therfore shal ye make nothinge with me: goddes of syluer and golde shal ye not make you. 24 Make me an altare of earth, wher vpon thou mayest offer yi burntofferynges, & peaceofferynges, thy shepe and thine oxen. For loke in what place so euer I make ye remembraunce of my name, there wil I come vnto the, and blesse the. 25 And yf thou wilt make me an altare of stone, thou shalt not make it of hewen stone: For yf thou lift vp thy tole vpon it, thou shalt vnhalowe it. 26 Morouer thou shalt not go vp vpon steppes vnto myne altare, that thy shame be not discouered before it.

Romans 13:1-4

1 Let euery soule submytte himselfe to the auctorite off the hyer powers. For there is no power but of God. 2 The powers that be, are ordeyned of God: so that who so euer resisteth the power, resisteth the ordinaunce of God. And they that resiste, shal receaue to them selues danacion. 3 For rulers are not to be feared for good workes, but for euell. Yf thou wilt be without feare off the power, do well then, and thou shalt haue prayse of the same: 4 for he is the minister off God for thy wealth. But yff thou do euell, then feare, for he beareth not the swerde for naughte. For he is the mynister of God, a taker of vengeaunce, to punyshe him that doth euell.

Exodus 22:1-31

1 Yf a man steale an oxe or shepe, and slaye it, or sell it, he shall restore fyue oxen for an oxe, and foure shepe for a shepe. 2 Yf a thefe be taken breakinge in, & vpon that be smytten that he dye, then shall not he that smote him, be giltie of his bloude. 3 But yf the sonne be gone vp vpo him, then hath he committed manslaughter, and he shal dye. A thefe shall make restitucion. Yf he haue nothige, the let him be solde for his theft. 4 But yf ye theft be founde by him alyue (from the oxe vnto the Asse or shepe) then shall he restore dubble. 5 Yf a man hurte a felde or vynyarde, so yt he let his catell do harme in another mans felde, the same shall make restitucion euen of the best of his owne felde and vynyarde. 6 Yf a fyre come out, and take holde of ye thornes, so that the sheeues be consumed, or the corne that stondeth yet vpon the felde, he that kyndled the fyre shall make restitucion. 7 Yf a man delyuer his neghboure money or vessels to kepe, and it be stollen from him out of his house: yf the thefe be founde, he shal restore dubble. 8 But yf the thefe be not founde, then shal the good man of the house be brought before the Goddes (and shal sweare) that he hath not put his hande vnto his neghbours good. 9 Yf one accuse another in eny maner of trespace, whether it be for oxe, or Asse, or shepe, or rayment, what so euer it be that is lost: then shall both their causes come before the Goddes: Loke whom the Goddes condempne, the same shal restore dubble vnto his neghboure. 10 Yf a man delyuer vnto his neghboure an Asse, or oxe or shepe, or eny maner of catell to kepe, and it dye, or be hurte, or dryuen awaye that no man se it, 11 then shall there an ooth of the LORDE go betwene them, that he hath not put his hande vnto his neghbours good: and the owner of ye good shal accepte it, so that the other shall not make it good. 12 Yf a thefe steale it from him, then shal he make restitucio vnto the owner therof. 13 But yf it be rauyshed (of beastes) then shal he brynge recorde therof, and not make it good. 14 Yf a man borowe ought of his neghboure, and it be hurte, or dye, so that the owner therof be not by, then shall he make it good. 15 But yf the owner therof be by, then shal he not make it good, yf he hyred it for his money. 16 Yf a man begile a mayde, that is not yet spoused, and lye with her, the same shal geue her hir dowry, and take her to his wife. 17 But yf hir father refuse to geue her vnto him, the shall he weye there the money, acordinge to the dowry of virgins. 18 Thou shalt not suffre a witch to lyue. 19 Who so lyeth wt a beest, shal dye the death. 20 Who so offreth to eny goddes, saue vnto the LORDE onely, let him dye without redempcion. 21 Thou shalt not vexe ner oppresse a straunger, for ye youre selues were straungers also in the londe of Egipte. 22 Ye shall truble no wyddowe ner fatherlesse childe. 23 Yf thou shalt trouble them, they shall crie vnto me, and I shall heare their crye: 24 then shal my wrath waxe whote, so yt I shal sley you with the swerde, and youre wyues shalbe wedowes, and youre children fatherlesse, 25 Yf thou lende money vnto my people that is poore by the, thou shalt not behaue thyself as an vsurer vnto him, nether shalt thou oppresse him with vsury. 26 Yf thou take a garment of thy neghboure to pledge, thou shalt geue it him agayne before the Sonne go downe: 27 for his raymet is his onely couerynge of his skynne: wherin he slepeth. But yf he shall crie vnto me, I wyll heare him: for I am mercifull. 28 Thou shalt not speake euell of the Goddes, and the ruler of thy people shall thou not blaspheme. 29 Thy drie and moist frutes shalt thou not kepe backe. Thy first sonne shalt thou geue vnto me. 30 So shalt thou do also with thine oxen and shepe. Seuen dayes let it be with the dame: Vpon the eight daye shalt thou geue it vnto me. 31 Ye shalbe holy people before me. Therfore shal ye eate no flesh, that is torne of beestes in the felde, but cast it vnto the dogges.
