John 4:4-26

4 But he must nedes go thorow Samaria. 5 Then came he in to a cite of Samaria, called Sichar, nye vnto ye pece of lode, yt Iacob gaue vnto Ioseph his sonne. 6 And there was Iacobs well. Now whan Iesus was weerye of his iourney, he satt hi downe so vpo the well. And it was aboute the sixte houre. 7 Then came there a woman of Samaria to drawe water. Iesus sayde vnto her: Geue me drynke. 8 (For his disciples were gone their waye in to ye cite, to bye meate.) 9 So the woman of Samaria sayde vnto him: How is it that thou axest drynke of me, seynge thou art a Iewe, and I a woman of Samaria? For the Iewes medle not with the Samaritans. 10 Iesus answered, and sayde vnto her: Yf thou knewest the gift of God, and who it is that sayeth vnto the, geue me drynke, thou woldest axe of him, and he wolde geue the, the water of life. 11 The woman sayde vnto him: Syr, thou hast nothinge to drawe withall, and the well is depe, from whence hast thou then that water of life? 12 Art thou greater then oure father Iacob, which gaue vs this well? And he himself dranke therof, and his children, and his catell. 13 Iesus answered, and sayde vnto her: Who so euer drynketh of this water, shal thyrst agayne: 14 But whosoeuer shal drynke of the water that I shal geue him, shal neuer be more a thyrst: but the water that I shal geue him, shalbe in him a well of water, which spryngeth vp in to euerlastinge life. 15 The woman sayde vnto him: Syr, geue me that same water, that I thyrst not, nether nede to come hither to drawe. 16 Iesus sayde vnto her: Go, call they hussbande, and come hither. 17 The woman answered, and sayde vnto him: I haue no hussbande. 18 Iesus sayde vnto her: Thou hast sayde well, I haue no hussbande: for thou hast had fyue hussbandes, and he whom thou hast now, is not thine hussbande: there saydest thou right. 19 The woma sayde vnto him: Syr, I se, that thou art a prophet. 20 Oure fathers worshipped vpon this mountayne, and ye saye, that at Ierusalem is the place, where men ought to worshippe. 21 Iesus sayde vnto her: Woman, beleue me, the tyme commeth, that ye shal nether vpon this mountayne ner at Ierusalem worshippe the father. 22 Ye wote not what ye worshippe, but we knowe what ye worshippe, for Saluacion commeth of the Iewes. 23 But the tyme commeth, and is now allready, that the true worshippers shal worshippe the father in sprete and in the trueth: For the father wil haue soch so to worshippe him. 24 God is a sprete, and they that worshippe him, must worshippe in sprete and in the trueth. 25 The woma sayde vnto him: I wote that Messias shal come, which is called Christ. Whan he commeth, he shal tell vs all thinges. 26 Iesus sayde vnto her: I that speake vnto the, am he.

Malachi 2:10

10 Haue we not all one father? Hath not one God made vs? why doth euery one off vs then despyse his owne brother, and so breake the couenaunt of oure fathers?

Matthew 28:19

19 Go ye youre waye therfore, and teach all nacions, and baptyse them in the name of the father, and of the sonne, and of the holy goost:

Romans 14:1-23

1 Him that is weake in the faith, receaue vnto you, and trouble not the consciences. 2 One beleueth that he maye eate all thinge: but he that is weake, eateth herbes. 3 Let not him that eateth, despyse him that eateth not: and let not him which eateth not, iudge him that eateth: for God hath receaued him. 4 Who art thou, that iudgest another mans seruaut? He stondeth or falleth vnto his LORDE: Yee he maye well stode, for God is able to make hi stode. 5 Some man putteth differece betwene daye & daye, but another man counteth all dayes alyke. Let euery man be sure of his meanynge. 6 He that putteth difference in the daye, doth it vnto the LORDE: & he that putteth no differece in the daye, doth it vnto ye LORDE also. He yt eateth, eateth vnto the LORDE, for he geueth God thakes: 7 and he that eateth not, eateth not vnto ye LORDE, and geueth God thankes. 8 For none of vs lyueth to himselfe, and none dyeth to him selfe. Yf we lyue, we lyue vnto the LORDE: Yf we dye, we dye vnto the LORDE. Therfore, whether we lyue or dye, we are the LORDES. 9 For therto dyed Christ, and rose agayne, and reuyued, that he mighte be LORDE both of deed and quycke. 10 But why iudgest thou yi brother? Or thou other, why despysest thou yi brother? We shal all be broughte before ye iudgmet seate of Christ. 11 For it is wrytte: As truly as I lyue, (sayeth the LORDE) all knees shal bowe vnto me, & all tuges shal knowlege vnto God. 12 Thus shal euery one of vs geue acomptes for himselfe vnto God. 13 Let vs not therfore iudge one another enymore. But iudge this rather, yt noma put a stomblinge blocke or an occasion to fall in his brothers waye. 14 I knowe, & am full certified in ye LORDE Iesu, yt there is nothinge comen of itselfe: but vnto him yt iudgeth it to be comen, to him is it comen. 15 But yf yi brother be greued ouer yi meate, the walkest thou not now after charite. Destroye not wt thy meate, him, for whom Christ dyed, 16 Se therfore that youre treasure be not euell spoke of. 17 For the kyngdome of God is not meate and drynke, but righteousnes, & peace, and ioye in the holy goost. 18 He that in these thinges serueth Christ, pleaseth God, & is comended of me. 19 Let vs therfore folowe those thinges which make for peace, & thinges wherwith one maye edifye another. 20 Destroye not ye worke of God for eny meates sake. All thinges truly are cleane, but it is euell for yt ma, which eateth wt hurte of his coscience 21 It is moch better yt thou eate no flesh, and drynke no wyne, nor eny thinge, wherby thy brother stombleth, or falleth, or is made weake. 22 Hast thou faith, haue it with yi selfe before God Happye is he, that codemneth not him selfe in yt thinge which he aloweth. 23 But he that maketh conscience of it and yet eateth, is dampned: because he doth it not of faith. For what so euer is not of faith, that same is synne.

Revelation 7:9

9 After this I behelde, and lo, a gret multitude (which no man coulde nombre) of all nacions and people, and tonges, stode before the seate, and before the lambe, clothed wt longe whyte garmetes, and palmes in their hondes,

Colossians 1:16-17

16 For by him were all thinges created, that are in heauen and earth, thinges vysible and thinges inuysible, whether they be maiesties or lordshippes, ether rules or powers: All thinges are created by him and in him, 17 and he is before all thinges, and in him all thinges haue their beynge.

James 2:1-26

1 Brethren, haue not the faith of oure LORDE Iesus Christ ye LORDE of glory in respecte of persons. 2 Yf ther come in to yor copany a ma wt a golde rynge and in goodly aparell, & ther come in also a poore man in vyle raymet, 3 & ye haue a respecte to him yt weareth the gaye clothinge & saye vnto hi: Sit thou here i a good place, & saye vnto ye poore, stonde thou there or sit here vnder my fote stole: 4 are ye not parciall in youre selues, and haue iudged after euyll thoughtes? 5 Harken my deare beloued brethre. Hath not God chosen the poore of this worlde, which are ryche in faith, and heyres of the kyngdom which he promysed to the that loue him? 6 But ye haue despised the poore. Are not the rych they which oppresse you: & they which drawe you before iudges? 7 Do not they speake euell of that good name after which ye be named. 8 Yf ye fulfill the royall lawe acordinge to the scripture which saith: Thou shalt loue thyne neghbour as thyselfe, ye do well. 9 But yf ye regarde one person more then another, ye comit synne, and are rebuked of the lawe as trsagressours. 10 Whosoeuer shal kepe the whole lawe, and yet fayle in one poynt, he is gyltie in all. 11 For he that sayde: Thou shalt not commit adulterie, sayed also: thou shalt not kyll. Though thou do none adulterie, yet yf thou kill, thou art a transgresser of the lawe. 12 So speake ye, and so do as they that shalbe iudged by the lawe of libertie. 13 For ther shalbe iudgement merciles to him that sheweth no mercy, & mercy reioiseth against iudgment. 14 What a vayleth it my brethre, though a man saye he hath faith, when he hath no dedes? Can faith saue him? 15 If a brother or a sister be naked or destitute of dayly fode, 16 & one of you saye vnto them: Departe in peace, God sende you warmnes and fode: notwithstodinge ye geue them not tho thinges which are nedfull to the body: what helpeth it them? 17 Euen so faith, yf it haue no dedes, is deed in it selfe. 18 Ye & a man might saye: Thou hast faith, and I haue dedes: Shewe me thy faith by thy dedes: and I wil shewe the my faith by my dedes. 19 Beleuest thou yt ther is one God? Thou doest well. The deuils also beleue and tremble. 20 Wilt thou vnderstode o thou vayne man that faith with out dedes is deed: 21 Was not Abraham oure father iustified thorow workes when he offered Isaac his sonne vpon the aulter? 22 Thou seist how yt faith wrought with his dedes, and through ye dedes was the faith made perfect: 23 & the scripture was fulfilled which faith: Abraha beleued God and it was reputed vnto him for rightewesnes: and he was called ye frende of God. 24 Ye se then how that of dedes a man is iustified, and not of faith only 25 Likewise also was not Raab the harlot iustified thorow workes, when she receaued the messengers, and sent them out another waye? 26 For as the body, with oute the sprete is deed, euen so faith wt out dedes is deed.
