7 Who so hath spoused a wyfe, and hath not yet brought her home, let him go, and byde at home, yt he die not in the battayll, & another brynge her home.

Psalms 118:1-29

1 O Geue thankes vnto the LORDE, for he is gracious, and his mercy endureth for euer. 2 Let Israel now confesse, yt his mercy endureth for euer. 3 Let the house of Aaron now confesse, that his mercy endureth for euer. 4 Yee let the now that feare the LORDE, confesse, that his mercy endureth for euer. 5 I called vpon the LORDE in trouble, and the LORDE herde me at large. 6 The LORDE is my helper, I wil not feare what man doeth vnto me. 7 The LORDE is my helper, & I shal se my desyre vpon myne enemies. 8 It is better to trust in the LORDE, then to put eny confidence in man. 9 It is better to trust in the LORDE, then to put eny confidece in prynces. 10 All Heithen compased me rounde aboute, but in the name of the LORDE wil I destroye the. 11 They kepte me in on euery syde, but in the name of the LORDE, I wil destroye them. 12 They came aboute me like bees, & were as hote as the fyre in the thornes, but in the name of the LORDE I wil destroye them. 13 They thrust at me, that I might fall, but the LORDE was my helpe. 14 The LORDE is my stregth, & my songe, & is become my saluacion. 15 The voyce of ioye & myrth is in the dwellynges of ye rightuous, for ye right hande of the LORDE hath gotte the victory. 16 The right hande of the LORDE hath the preemynence, the right hade of the LORDE hath gotte the victory. 17 I wil not dye, but lyue, and declare the workes of the LORDE. 18 The LORDE hath chastened & correcte me, but he hath not geuen me ouer vnto death. 19 Open me the gates of rightuousnes, yt I maye go in there thorow, & geue thakes vnto the LORDE. 20 This is the dore of the LORDE, the rightuous shall entre in thorow it. 21 I thanke the, yt thou hast herde me, & art become my saluacio. 22 The same stone which the buylders refused, is become the heade stone in the corner. 23 This was the LORDES doinge, & it is maruelous in or eyes. 24 This is the daye which the LORDE hath made, let vs reioyse and be glad in it. 25 Helpe now o LORDE, o LORDE sende vs now prosperite. 26 Blessed be he that cometh in the name of the LORDE, we wish you good lucke, ye that be of the house of the LORDE. 27 God is the LORDE, & hath shewed vs light: O garnish the solempne feast with grene braunches, eue vnto the hornes of ye aulter. 28 Thou art my God, & I wil thanke the: thou art my God, and I wil prayse the. 29 O geue thankes vnto the LORDE, for he is gracious, & his mercy endureth for euer.

Matthew 19:6

6 Now are they not twayne then, but one flesh. Let not man therfore put a sunder, yt which God hath coupled together.

Matthew 24:1-51

1 And Iesus wente out and departed from the temple, and his disciples came vnto him, to shew him the buyldinge of the temple. 2 But Iesus sayde vnto them: Se ye not all these thinges? Verely I saye vnto you: there shal not be left here one stone vpon another, yt shal not be cast downe. 3 And as he sat vpon the mount Oliuete, his disciples came vnto him secretly, & saide: Tell us, whe shal these thinges come to passe? and which shal be the token of thy comynge, and of the ende of the worlde? 4 Iesus answered and sayde vnto them: Take hede, that no man disceaue you. 5 For there shal many come in my name, and saye: I am Christ, and shal disceaue many. 6 Ye shal heare of warres, and of ye noyse of warres: take hede, and be not ye troubled. All these thinges must first come to passe, but the ende is not yet. 7 For one people shall ryse vp agaynst another, and one realme agaynst another: and there shalbe pestilece, honger, and earthquakes here & there. 8 All these are the begynnynge of sorowes. 9 Then shal they put you to trouble, & shal kyll you, and ye shalbe hated of all people for my names sake. 10 The shal many be offended, and shal betraye one another, and shal hate one the other. 11 And many false prophetes shal aryse, and shal disceaue many: 12 and because iniquyte shal haue the vpper hande, the loue of many shal abate. 13 But whoso endureth vnto ye ende, ye same shal be saued. 14 And this gospell of the kyngdome shalbe preached in all the worlde for a wytnes vnto all people, and then shal the ende come. 15 Whan ye therfore shal se the abhominacion of desolacion (wher of it is spoke by Daniel the prophet) stonde in the holy place (who so readeth it, let him marck it well) 16 the let the which be in Iewry, flye vnto ye moutaynes: 17 and let him which is on the house toppe, not come downe to fet eny thinge out of his house: 18 and let him which is in ye felde, not turne back to fetch his clothes. 19 But wo vnto them that are with childe, and to them that geue suck in those dayes. 20 But praye ye, that youre flight be not in ye wynter, ner on the Sabbath. 21 For then shal there be greate trouble, soch as was not from the begynnynge of the worlde vnto this tyme, ner shalbe. 22 Yee and excepte those daies shulde be shortened, there shulde no flesh be saued: but for ye chosens sake those dayes shalbe shortened. 23 Then yf eny man shal saye vnto you: lo, here is Christ, or there, beleue it not. 24 For there shal aryse false Christes and false prophetes, and shal do greate tokes and wonders: In so moch, that (yf it were possible) the very chosen shulde be brought in to erroure. 25 Beholde, I haue tolde you before. 26 Wherfore yf they shal saye vnto you: Beholde, he is in the wildernes, go not ye forth:Beholde, he is in the chamber, beleue it not. 27 For like as the lightenynge goeth out from the East, and shyneth vnto the west, so shal the commynge of the sonne of man be. 28 For where so euer a deed carcase is, there wyl the Aegles be gathered together. 29 Immediatly after the trouble of the same tyme, shal the Sonne and Moone lose their light, and the starres shall fall from heauen, and the powers of heauen shal moue: 30 and then shal appeare the token of the sonne of man in heaue: and then shal all the kynreds of the earth mourne, and they shal se the sonne of man come in the cloudes of heauen with greate power and glory. 31 And he shal sende his angels with ye greate voyce of a trompe, & they shal gather together his chosen from the foure wyndes, from one ende of the heauen to the other. 32 Lerne a symilitude of ye fygge tre. When his braunche is yet tender, and his leaues spronge, ye knowe that Sommer is nye. 33 So likewyse ye, whan ye se all thynges, be ye sure, that it is nye euen at the dores 34 Verely I saye vnto you: This generacion shal not passe, tyll all these be fulfylled. 35 Heauen and earth shal perishe, but my wordes shal not perishe. 36 Neuertheles of that daye & houre knoweth no man, no not the angels of heauen, but my father onely. 37 Euen as it was in the tyme of Noe, so shal the commynge of the sonne of man be also. 38 For as they were in the dayes before ye floude (they ate, they dronke, they maried, and were maried, euen vnto the daye yt Noe entred in to the shippe, 39 and they regarded it not, tyll the floude came and toke them all awaye) So shal also the commynge of the sonne of man be. 40 The shal two be in the felde: the one shal be receaued,and the other shalbe refused: 41 Two shalbe gryndinge at the Myll, the one shalbe receaued, and the other shalbe refused: 42 Watch therfore, for ye knowe not what houre youre LORDE wil come. 43 But be sure of this, that yf the good man of the house knewe what houre the thefe wolde come, he wolde surely watch, and not suffre his house to be broken vp. 44 Therfore be ye ready also, for in the houre that ye thynke not, shal the sonne of man come. 45 Who is now a faithfull and wyse seruaut, whom his lorde hath made ruler ouer his houssholde, that he maye geue them meate in due season? 46 Blessed is yt seruaut, whom his lorde (whan he cometh) shal fynde so doynge. 47 Verely. I saye vnto you: he shal set him ouer all his goodes. 48 But and yf the euell seruaut shal saye in his hert: Tush, it wil be longe or my lorde come, 49 and begynne to smyte his felowes, yee and to eate and drynke with the dronken: 50 The same seruautes lorde shal come in a daye, wha he loketh not for him, and in an houre that he is not ware of, 51 and shal hew him in peces and geue him his rewarde with ypocrytes: there shal be waylinge and gnasshinge of teth.

1 Kings 9:3

3 And the LORDE sayde vnto him: I haue herde thy prayer and peticion, that thou hast made before me, and haue sanctified this house which thou hast buylded, that I maye set my name there for euer: and myne eyes and my hert shalbe there allwaye.

Song of Songs 8:6

Mark 10:8

8 and they two shalbe one flesh. Now are they not twayne the, but one flesh.

1 Corinthians 13:1-13

1 Though I spake with the tunges of men and angels, and yet had not loue, I were euen as sowndinge brasse, or as a tynklinge Cymball. 2 And though I coulde prophecy, & vnderstode all secretes, and all knowlege, and had all faith, so that I coulde moue moutaynes out of their places, and yet had not loue, I were nothinge. 3 And though I bestowed all my goodes to fede ye poore, and though I gaue my body euen that I burned, and yet haue not loue, it profiteth me nothinge. 4 Loue is pacient & curteous, loue envyeth not, loue doth not frowardly, is not puft vp, dealeth not dishonestly, 5 seketh not hir awne, is not prouoked vnto anger, thynketh not euell, 6 reioyseth not ouer iniquyte, but reioyseth in the trueth, 7 beareth all thinges, beleueth all thinges, hopeth all thinges, suffreth all thinges. 8 Though prophecienges fayle, or tunges ceasse, or knowlege perishe, yet loue falleth neuer awaye. 9 For oure knowlege is vnparfecte, and oure prophecienge is vnparfecte. 10 But wha that which is perfecte, commeth, then shal the vnparfecte be done awaye. 11 Whan I was a childe, I spake as a childe, I vnderstode as a childe, I ymagined as a childe. But as soone as I was a man, I put awaye childishnes. 12 Now we se thorow a glasse in a darke speakynge, but the shal we se face to face. Now I knowe vnperfectly: but the shal I knowe eue as I am knowne. 13 Now abydeth faith, hope, loue, these thre: but the greatest of these is loue.

Mark 10:9

9 Let not man therfore put asunder that, which God hath coupled together.

3 Maye twaine walke together excepte they be agreed amonge them selues?

Hosea 2:19-20

19 Thus wil I mary the vnto myne owne self for euermore: yee euen to my self wil I mary the, in rightuousnesse, in equyte, in louynge kyndnesse and mercy. 20 In faith also will I mary the vnto my self, & thou shalt knowe the LORDE.
