1 Therfore o thou sonne of man, prophecie agaynst Gog, and speake: Thus saieth the LORDE God: Beholde, o Gog: thou chefe prynce at Mesech and Tubal, I wil vpon the, 2 and turne the aboute, & carie the forth, & lede ye from the north partes, and bringe the vp to the mountaynes of Israel 3 As for thy bowe, I wil smyte it out of thy left honde, and cast thine arowes out of thy right honde. 4 Thou with all thine heape, and all the people that is with the, must fall vpon the mountaynes of Israel. Then wil I geue the vnto ye foules and wilde beastes of the felde, to be deuoured: 5 there must thou lye vpon the felde: for eue I the LORDE haue spoken it, saieth the LORDE God. 6 In to Magog, and amonge those that sit so carelesse in the Iles: wil I sende a fyre, and they shal knowe, yt I am the LORDE. 7 I wil make also the name of my holynesse to be knowne amonge my people of Israel: and I will not let my holy name be euel spoken of enymore: but the very Heithen also shal knowe, that I am the LORDE, the holy one of Israel. 8 Beholde, it commeth, and shalbe fulfilled in dede, saieth the LORDE God. This is the daye, wherof I haue spoken: 9 They that dwell in ye cities of Israel, shal go forth and set fyre vpon the weapens, and burne them: shyldes and speres, bowes and arowes, bylles and clubbes: seuen yeares 10 shall they be burnynge therof, so that they shall els bringe no stickes from ye felde, nether haue nede to hew downe eny out of the wodde: For they shall haue weapens ynew to burne. They shal robbe those that robbed them, and spoyle those that spoyled them, saieth ye LORDE God. 11 At the same tyme will I geue vnto Gog, a place to be buried in, in Israel: eue the valley, where thorow men go from the east to the see warde. Those that trauayle therby, shal abhorre it. There shal Gog and all his people be buried: and it shalbe called the valley of the people of Gog. 12 Seuen monethes longe shall the house of Israel be burienge of them, that they maye clense the lode: 13 Yee all the people of the londe shal burie them. O it shal be a glorious daye, when I get me that honoure, saieth the LORDE God. 14 They shal ordene men also to be deedburiers, euer goinge thorow the lode, and appoynte them certayne places to bury those in, which remayne vpon the felde, that the londe maye be clensed. From ende to ende shal they seke, and that vij monethes loge. 15 Now those that go thorow the londe, where they se a mans bone, they shall set vp a token by it, till the deedburiers haue buried it also, in the valley of the people of Gog. 16 And the name of the cite shalbe called Hamona: Thus shall they make the londe clene. 17 And thou sonne of man: thus saieth the LORDE God: Speake vnto all the foules and euery byrde, yee and to all the wilde beastes of the felde: heape you together and come, gather you roude aboute vpo my slaughter, that I haue slayne for you: euen a greate slaughter vpon the mountaynes of Israel: eate flesh, and drynke bloude. 18 Ye shal eate ye flesh of the worthies, and drynke the bloude of the prynces of the londe: of the wethers, of the lambes, of the goates, and of the oxen that be all slayne at Basan. 19 Eate ye fat youre bely full, and drynke bloude, till ye be droncken of the slaughter, which I haue slayne vnto you. 20 Fyl you at my table, with horses & stronge horsmen: with captaynes and all me of warre, saieth the LORDE God. 21 I will bringe my glory also amonge the Gentiles, that all the Heithen maye se my iudgment, that I haue kepte, and my honde which I haue layed vpon them: 22 that ye house of Israel maye knowe, how that I am ye LORDE their God, from that daye forth. 23 And the Heithen shal knowe, that where as the house of Israel were led into captiuyte: it was for their wickednes sake, because they offended me. For the which cause I hyd my face from them, and delyuered them in to the hondes of their enemies, that they might all be slayne with the swearde. 24 Acordinge to their vnclennesse and vnfaithfull dealinges, so haue I entreated them, and hyd my face from them. 25 Therfore thus saieth ye LORDE God: Now will I bringe agayne the captyues of Iacob, and haue mercy vpon the whole house of Israel, and be gelous for my holy names sake. 26 All their confucion and offence that they haue done agaynst me, shal be taken awaye: and so safely shal they dwell in their londe, that no man shal make them afrayed. 27 And when I haue brought the agayne from amonge the people, when I haue gathered them together out of their enemies londes, and am praysed in them before many Heithen: 28 then shall they knowe, that I am the LORDE their God, which suffred them to be led in to captiuyte amonge the Heithen, but now haue brought them agayne in to their owne londe, and not left one of them yonder. 29 After that, will I hyde my face nomore from them, but will poure out my sprete vpon the house of Israel, saieth the LORDE God.

7 O ye children off Israel, are ye not vnto me, euen as the Morians, sayeth the LORDE? haue not I brought Israel out off the londe off Egipte, the Philistynes from Capthor, and the Sirians fro Cyr?

Matthew 5:1-48

1 When he sawe the people, he went vp into a mountayne: and when he was set, his disciples came to hym, 2 and he opened his mouth, and taught them, sayinge: 3 Blessed are the poore in sprete: for theirs is the kyngdome of heue. 4 Blessed are they that mourne: for they shalbe coforted. 5 Blessed are the meke: for they shall inheret the erth. 6 Blessed are they which honger & thyrst for rightewesnes: for they shalbe filled. 7 Blessed are the mercifull: for they shall obteyne mercy. 8 Blessed are the pure in herte: for they shall se God. 9 Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shalbe called the chyldren of God. 10 Blessed are they which suffre persecucion for rightwesnes sake: for theirs is the kyngdome of heuen. 11 Blessed are ye when men reuyle you, and persecute you, and falsly say all manner of yuell saynges against you for my sake. 12 Reioyce and be glad, for greate is youre rewarde in heue.For so persecuted they the Prophetes which were before youre dayes. 13 Ye are ye salt of the earth, but and yf the salt haue lost his saltnes, what can be salted therwith? It is thence forth good for nothynge, but to be cast out, and to be trodden vnder fote of men. 14 Ye are the light of the worlde. A cite that is set on an hill, can not be hid: 15 nether do men lyght a candell, and put it vnder a busshell, but on a candelstick, and it lighteth all that are in the house. 16 Let youre light so shyne before men, that they maye se youre good workes, and glorify youre father which is in heauen. 17 Thinke not, that I am come to destroye the lawe, or the Prophetes: no, I am not come to destroye them, but to fulfyll them. 18 For truly I saye vnto you: till heauen and earth perisshe, one iott or one tyttle of the lawe shall not escape, tyll all be fulfilled. 19 Whosoeuer breaketh one of these least comaundmentes, and teacheth me so, he shalbe called the leest in the kyngdome of heauen, But whosoeuer obserueth and teacheth the same shalbe called greate in the kyngdome of heauen. 20 For I saye vnto you: excepte youre rightewesnes exceade the righetewesnes of the Scribes and Pharises, ye can not entre in to the kyngdome of heauen. 21 Ye haue herde, how it was sayde to the of the olde tyme: Thou shalt not kyll. For whosoeuer kylleth, shall be in daunger of iudgement. 22 But I saye vnto you: whosoeuer is angrie with his brother, is in daunger of the iudgement. Whosoeuer sayeth vnto his brother: Racha, is in daunger of ye cousell. But whosoeuer sayeth: thou foole, is in daunger of hell fyre. 23 Therfore when thou offrest thy gift at the altare, and there remembrest that thy brother hath ought agaynst the: 24 leaue there thyne offrynge before the altare, and go thy waye first, and reconcyle thy selfe to thy brother, & then come and offre thy gyfte. 25 Agre with thine aduersary quicklye, whyle thou art in the waye with hym, lest that aduersary deliuer the to the iudge, and the iudge deliuer the to the minister, and then thou be cast in to preson. 26 I saye vnto the verely: thou shalt not come out thece, till thou haue payed the vtmost farthinge. 27 Ye haue herde, how it was sayde to them of olde tyme: Thou shalt not committe aduoutrie. 28 But I saye vnto you, that whosoeuer loketh on a wife lustinge after her, hath committed aduoutrie with hir already in his hert. 29 Wherfore yf thy right eye offende the, plucke hym out, and cast him from the. Better it is for the, that one of thy membres perisshe, then that thy whole body shulde be cast in to hell. 30 Also yf thy right honde offende the, cut hym of, and cast him from the. Better yt is that one of thy mebres perissh, the yt all yi body shulde be cast in to hell. 31 It is sayde: whosoeuer putteth awaye his wyfe, let hym geue her a testimony all of the deuorcemet. 32 But I saye vnto you: whosoeuer putteth awaye his wyfe (except it be for fornicacio causeth her to breake matrymony. And whosoeuer maryeth her that is deuorsed, breaketh wedlocke. 33 Agayne, ye haue herde, how it was sayde to the of olde tyme: Thou shalt not forsweare thy selfe, but shalt performe thyne ooth to God. 34 But I saye vnto you: sweare not at all, nether by heaue, for it is Godis seate: 35 nor yet by the earth, for it is his fote stole: nether by Ierusalem, for it is the cyte of ye greate kinge: 36 nether shalt thou sweare by thy heed, because thou canst not make one heer whyte or blacke: 37 But your communicacion shalbe, yee, yee: nay, nay. For what soeuer is more then that, commeth of euel. 38 Ye haue herde howe it is sayde: An eye for an eye, a toth for a toth. 39 But I saye vnto you: that ye resist not euell. But whosoeuer geueth the a blowe on thy right cheke, turne to him the other also. 40 And yf eny man will sue the at the lawe, & take awaye thy coate, let him haue thy cloake also. 41 And who so compelleth the to go a myle, go wt hym twayne. 42 Geue to hym that axeth: and from hym that wolde borowe, turne not awaye. 43 Ye haue herde, how it is saide: thou shalt loue thyne neghboure, & hate thyne enemy. 44 But I saye vnto you: loue youre enemies: Blesse the that cursse you: Do good to the that hate you: Praye for the which do you wronge and persecute you, 45 that ye maye be the chyldern of youre father which is in heauen: for he maketh his sonne to aryse on the euel and on the good, and sendeth his rayne on the iust and vniuste. 46 For yf ye loue them which loue you, what rewarde shall ye haue? Do not the Publicans eue so? 47 And yf ye be frendly to youre brethren onlye: what singuler thynge do ye? Do not the Publicans also lyke wyse? 48 Ye shall therfore be perfecte, euen as youre father in heaue is perfecte.

Acts 13:1-52

1 There were at Antioche in the congregacion, prophetes and teachers, as Barnabas, and Simon called Niger, and Lucius of Cyren, and Manahen Herodes the Tetrachas norsfelowe, and Saul. 2 As they serued ye LORDE, and fasted, the holy goost sayde: Separate me out Barnabas and Saul for the worke, where vnto I haue called them. 3 Then fasted they and prayed, and layed the handes on them, and let them go. 4 And they beynge sent of the holy goost, came vnto Seleucia, from thence they sayled vnto Cypers. 5 And whan they were come in to the cite Salamin, they shewed the worde of God in the synagoges of ye Iewes. And they had Ihon to their mynister. 6 And whan they had gone thorow out the yle vnto the cyte of Paphos, they founde a certayne Sorcerer and false prophete, a Iewe (whose name was Bariesu) 7 which was with Sergius Paulus the ruler of the countre, a ma of vnderstondinge. The same called Barnabas and Saul vnto him, and desyred to heare ye worde of God. 8 Then the Sorcerer Elimas (for so was his name by interpretacion) withstode the, and soughte to turne awaye the ruler fro the faith. 9 But Saul which is also called Paul, beynge full of the holy goost, loked vpon him, 10 and sayde: O thou childe of the deuell, full of all futtyltie and all disceatfulnesse, and enemye of all righteousnes, thou ceassest not to peruerte the straight wayes of ye LORDE. 11 And now beholde, the hade of the LORDE commeth vpon the, and thou shalt be blynde, and not se the Sonne for a season, And immediatly there fell on him a myst and darknesse, and he wente aboute, and soughte them that shulde lede him by the hande. 12 Whan the ruler sawe what was done, he beleued, and wodred at the doctryne of the LORDE. 13 Whan Paul and they that were with him, were departed by shippe fro Paphos, they came to Perga in the londe of Pamphilia. But Ihon departed from them, and wente agayne to Ierusalem. 14 Neuertheles they wandred thorow from Perga, and came to Antioche in the londe of Pisidia, and wete in to the synagoge vpon the Sabbath daye, and sat downe. 15 But after the lecture of the lawe and of the prophetes, the rulers of the synagoge sent vnto them, sayenge: Good brethren, yf ye haue eny sermon to exorte the people, saye on. 16 Then stode Paul vp, and beckened with the hande (that they shulde holde their peace) and sayde:Ye men of Israel, and ye that feare God, herke to: 17 The God of this people chose oure fathers, and exalted the people, whan they were straungers in the lode of Egipte, and with a mightie arme broughte he them out of it. 18 And by the space of fortye yeares suffred he their maners in the wyldernesse, 19 and destroyed seuen nacions in the lande of Canaan, and parted their londe amonge them by lott. 20 After that gaue he them iudges by the space of foure hundreth and fiftye yeares, vnto the prophet Samuel. 21 And after that they desyred a kynge, and God gaue vnto them Saul the sonne of Cis, a man of the trybe of BenIamin, fortye yeares longe. 22 And whan he had put him downe, he set vp Dauid to be their kynge, of whom he reported, sayenge: I haue founde Dauid the sonne of Iesse, a man after my hert, he shal fulfyll all my wyll. 23 Of this mans sede hath God ( acordinge to the promesse) broughte forth vnto the people of Israel, ye Sauioure Iesus: 24 whan Ihon had first preached before his comynge the baptyme of repentaunce vnto Israel. 25 But whan Ihon had fulfylled his course, he sayde: I am not he, that ye take me for. But beholde, there commeth one after me, whose shues of his fete I am not worthy to lowse. 26 Ye men and brethren, ye children of the generacion of Abraham, and they that feare God amonge you, vnto you is ye worde of this saluacion sent. 27 For the inhabiters of Ierusalem, and their rulers, for somoch as they knewe him not, ner yet the voyces of the prophetes (which are red euery Sabbath) haue fulfylled them in condemnynge him. 28 And though they founde no cause of death in him, yet desyred they Pilate to kyll him. 29 And whan they had fulfylled all that was wrytten of him, they toke him downe from the tre, and layed him in a sepulcre. 30 But on ye thirde daye God raysed him vp from the deed, 31 and he appeared many dayes vnto the, that wente vp with him from Galile vnto Ierusalem, which are his witnesses vnto the people. 32 And we also declare vnto you ye promes, which was made vnto oure fathers, 33 how that God hath fulfylled the same vnto vs their children, in yt he raysed vp Iesus agayne. As it is wrytten in the seconde Psalme: Thou art my sonne, this daye haue I begotten the. 34 But that he hath raysed him vp fro the deed, now nomore to returne to corrupcion, he sayde on this wyse: The grace promysed to Dauid, wyl I faithfully kepe vnto you. 35 Therfore sayeth he also in another place: Thou shalt not suffre thy Holy to se corrupcion. 36 For Dauid, whan he in his tyme had serued the wyll of God, he fell a slepe, and was layed by his fathers, & sawe corrupcion. 37 But he who God raysed vp agayne, sawe no corrupcion. 38 Be it knowne vnto you therfore ye men and brethre, yt thorow this man is preached vnto you ye forgeuenesse of synnes, 39 and fro all ye thinges, wherby ye mighte not be iustifyed in the lawe of Moses. 40 But whosoeuer beleueth on this man, is iustifyed. Bewarre therfore, that it come not vpon you, which is spoken in the prophetes: 41 Beholde ye despysers, and wonder at it, and perishe, for I do a worke in youre tyme, which ye shal not beleue, yf eny man tell it you. 42 Whan the Iewes were gone out of the synagoge, the Heythen besoughte them, yt they wolde speake ye worde vnto them betwene the Sabbath dayes. 43 And wha the cogregacion of the synagoge was broken vp, many Iewes and Proselites yt serued God, folowed Paul and Barnabas, which spake to them, and exorted them, that they shulde contynue in the grace of God. 44 On ye Sabbath folowinge, came almost the whole cite together, to heare the worde of God. 45 But whan the Iewes sawe the people, they were full of indignacion, and spake agaynst that which was spoken of Paul, speakinge agaynst it, & blasphemynge. 46 But Paul and Barnabas waxed bolde, and sayde: It behoued first the worde of God to be spoken vnto you: but now that ye thrust it fro you, and counte youre selues vnworthy of euerlastinge life, lo, we turne to the Gentyles. 47 For so hath the LORDE comaunded vs: I haue set the to be a lighte vnto ye Gentyles, yt thou be ye Saluacion vnto the ende of the earth. 48 Whan the Gentyles herde that, they were glad, and praysed the worde of the LORDE, and beleued, eue as many as were ordeyned to euerlastinge life. 49 And the worde of ye LORDE was spred abrode thorow out all the region. 50 Howbeit the Iewes moued the deuoute and honorable wemen, and the chefe men of the citie, and raysed vp a persecucion agaynst Paul and Barnabas and expelled them out of their coastes. 51 But they shoke of the dust of their fete agaynst them, and came to Iconium. 52 And the disciples were fylled with ioye and with the holy goost.

Genesis 1:1-31

1 In ye begynnynge God created heauen & earth: 2 and ye earth was voyde and emptie, and darcknes was vpon the depe, & ye sprete of God moued vpo the water. 3 And God sayde: let there be light, & there was light. 4 And God sawe the light that it was good. Then God deuyded ye light from the darcknes, 5 and called the light, Daye: and the darcknes, Night Then of the euenynge and mornynge was made the first daye. 6 And God sayde: let there be a firmament betwene the waters, and let it deuyde ye waters a sunder. 7 Then God made ye firmamet, and parted the waters vnder the firmamet, from the waters aboue the firmament: And so it came to passe. 8 And God called ye firmament, Heauen. Then of the euenynge & mornynge was made the seconde daye. 9 And God sayde: let the waters vnder heauen gather theselues vnto one place, yt the drye londe maye appeare.

And God sawe yt it was good. 11 And God sayde: let ye earth bringe forth grene grasse and herbe, that beareth sede: & frutefull trees, that maye beare frute, euery one after his kynde, hauynge their owne sede in them selues vpon the earth.

And God sawe that it was good. 13 Then of the euenynge & mornynge was made the thirde daye. 14 And God sayde: let there be lightes in ye firmament of heauen, to deuyde the daye fro the night, that they maye be vnto tokes, seasons, dayes, and yeares. 15 And let them be lightes in ye firmament of heauen, to shyne vpon the earth: And so it came to passe. 16 And God made two greate lightes: one greater light to rule the daye, and a lesse light to rule the night, and (he made) starres also. 17 And God set them in the firmament of heauen, yt they might shyne vpo earth, 18 and to rule the daye and the night, and to deuyde the light from darcknes. And God sawe that it was good. 19 Then of the euenynge and mornynge was made the fourth daye. 20 And God sayde: let the waters brynge forth creatures that moue and haue life, & foules for to flye aboue the earth vnder the firmamet of heauen. 21 And God created greate whalles, and all maner of creatures that lyue and moue, which the waters brought forth euery one after his kynde: and all maner of fethered foules, euery one after his kynde. And God sawe that it was good, 22 and blessed them, sayenge: Growe, and multiplie, and fyll the waters of the sees, and let the foules multiplie vpon the earth. 23 Then of the euenynge and mornynge was made the fifth daye. 24 And God sayde: let ye earth brynge forth lyuynge soules, euery one after his kynde: catell, wormes & what as hath life vpon earth, euery one after his kynde. And so it came to passe. 25 And God made ye beastes of the earth euery one after his kynde, and catell after their kynde, and all maner wormes of the earth after their kynde. And God sawe that it was good. 26 And God sayde: let vs make man in or similitude after oure licknesse, that he maye haue rule ouer the fysh of the see, and ouer the foules vnder ye heauen, and ouer catell, and ouer all the earth, and ouer all wormes that crepe on ye earth. 27 And God created man after his licknesse: after ye licknesse of God created he him, male & female created he them. 28 And God blessed them, and sayde vnto them: Growe, and multiplie, and fyll the earth, and subdue it, & haue domynion ouer the fish of the see, and ouer the foules of the ayre, and ouer all the beastes that crepe vpo the earth. 29 And God sayde: lo, I haue geuen you all maner herbes that beare sede vpon the whole earth, and all maner frutefull trees that beare sede, to be meate for you. 30 And to all beastes of the earth, and to all foules vnder the heauen, and to euery worme that hath life (vpon earth) all maner grene herbes to eate. And so it came to passe. 31 And God behelde all yt he had made, and lo, they were exceadinge good. Then of the euenynge and mornynge was made the sixte daye.

And they toke bryck for stone, & slyme for morter, 4 And sayde: Come, let vs buylde a cite & a tower, whose toppe maye reach vnto heaue, yt we maye make vs a name, afore we be scatred abrode in all londes. 5 Then came ye LORDE downe, to se ye cite & tower, yt ye childre of me had buylded. 6 And ye LORDE saide: Beholde, the people is one, & haue one maner of language amoge the all, & this haue they begonne to do, & wil not leaue of from all yt they haue purposed to do. 7 Come on, let vs go downe, & cofounde their tonge eue there, yt one vnderstonde not what another saieth. 8 Thus ye LORDE scatred the fro thece in all lodes, so yt they left of to buylde the cite. 9 Therfore is it called Babell, because the LORDE cofounded there the language of all the worlde, and from thece scatred them abrode in to all londes. 10 These are ye generacions of Sem. Sem was an hundreth yeare olde, and begat Arphachsad two yeare after the floude, 11 and lyued therafter fyue hudreth yeare, and begat sonnes and doughters. 12 Arphachsad was fiue & thirtie yeare olde, and begat Salah, 13 and lyued therafter foure hundreth and thre yeare, and begat sonnes & doughters. 14 Salah was thirtie yeare olde, and begat Eber, 15 & lyued therafter foure hudreth & thre yeare, & begat sonnes and doughters. 16 Eber was foure and thirtie yeare olde, & begat Peleg, 17 and lyued therafter foure hundreth and thirtie yeare, and begat sonnes & doughters. 18 Peleg was thirtie yeare olde, and begat Regu, 19 and lyued therafter two hudreth and nyene yeare, and begat sonnes & doughters. 20 Regu was two and thirtie yeare olde, and begat Serug, 21 and lyued therafter two hundreth and seuen yeare, and begat sonnes and doughters. 22 Serug was thirtie yeare olde, and begat Nahor, 23 and lyued therafter two hundreth yeare, and begat sonnes & doughters. 24 Nahor was nyene and twentye yeare olde, and begat Terah, 25 and lyued herafter an hundreth and nyentene yeare, and begat sonnes and doughters. 26 Terah was seuentie yeare olde, and begat Abram, Nahor and Haran. 27 These are the generations of Terah: Terah begat Abram, Nahor and Haran. And Haran begat Lot, 28 but Hara dyed before Terah his father in ye londe where he was borne, at Vr in Chaldea. 29 Then Abram and Nahor toke them wyues. Abrams wife was called Sarai, & Nahors wyfe Milca the doughter of Haran, which was father of Milca and Iisca. 30 But Sarai was baren, and had no childe. 31 Then toke Terah Abra his sonne, & Lot his sonne Harans sonne, & Sarai his doughter in lawe, his sonne Abrams wife, & caried them wt him from Vr in Chaldea, to go in to the lande of Canaan. And they came to Haran, & dwelt there. 32 And Terah was two hundreth & fyue yeare olde, and dyed in Haran.

6 The childre of Ham are these: Thus, Misraim, Phut and Canaan. 7 The children of Chus are these: Seba, Heuila Sabtha, Reyma and Sabthecha. The children of Reyma are these: Sheba and Deda. 8 Thus also begat Nemrod, which beganne to be mightie in the earth, 9 and was a mightie hunter in the sight of the LORDE. Therof commeth the prouerbe: This is a mightie hunter before the LORDE like as Nemrod. 10 And the origenall of his kyngdome was Babel, Erech, Acad & Chalne in ye londe of Synear. 11 Out of that lode came Assur, and buylded Niniue, and ye stretes of ye cite, and Calah, 12 and Ressen betwene Ninyne & Calah: This is a greate cite. 13 Mizraim begat Ludim, Enamim, Leabim, Naphtuhim, 14 Pathrusim & Casluhim, from whence came the Philistynes and Capthorims. 15 Canaa also begat Zidon his eldest sonne, & Heth, 16 Iebusi, Emori, Girgosi, 17 Hiui, Arki, Sini, 18 Aruadi, Zemari & Hamati: fro whence ye kynreds of ye Cananites are dispersed abrode. 19 And ye Coastes of ye Cananites were fro Sido forth thorow Gerar vnto Gasa, tyll thou comest vnto Sodoma, Gomorra, Adama, Zeboim, & vnto Lasa. 20 These are the children of Ham in their kynreds, tunges, londes & people.

Zechariah 14:2

2 for I wil gather together all the Heithen, to fight agaynst Ierusalem: so that the cite shalbe wonne, the houses spoyled, and the women defyled. The half of the cite shal go awaye in to captiuyte, and the residue of the people shal not be caried out of the cite.

Psalms 87:4

4 Yee the Philistynes also & they of Tyre with the Morians. Lo, there was he borne.

Isaiah 18:1-6

1 Wo be to the londe of flienge shippes, which is of this syde ye floude of Ethiopia: 2 which sendeth hir message ouer the see in shippes of redes vpo ye water, and sayeth: go soone, and do yor message vnto a straunge and harde folke: to a fearful people, & to a people yt is further then this: to a desperate and pylled folke, whose londe is deuyded from vs with ryuers of water. 3 Yee all ye yt syt in the compasse of the worlde, and dwell vpon the earth: when the token shalbe geuen vpo the mountaynes, then loke vp: and when the horne bloweth, then herken to, 4 for thus hath ye LORDE sayde vnto me. I layde me downe, and pondred the matter in my house, at the noone daye when it was hote: and there fel a myslinge shower, like a dew, as it happeneth in haruest. 5 But the frutes, were not yet ripe cut of, and the grapes were but yonge and grene. Then one smote of the grapes with an hoke, yee he hewed downe also the buwes and the braunches, & dyd cast the awaye. 6 And thus they were layde waist, for the foules of the mountaynes, and for ye beastes of the earth together. So yt the foules sat ther vpon, and the beastes of the earth wyntered there.

Jeremiah 38:7-13

7 So Ieremy stack fast in the myre. Now when Abdemelech the Morian beynge a chamberlayne in the kynges courte, vnderstode, that they had cast Ieremy in to the dongeon: 8 he went out off the kynges house, and spake to the kynge (which the sat vnder the porte off Ben Iamin) these wordes: 9 My lorde the kynge, where as these men medle with Ieremy the prophet, they do him wronge: Namely, in that they haue put him in preson, there to dye of honger, for there is no more bred in the cite. 10 The the kynge commauded Abdemelech the Morian, and sayde: Take from hece xxx. men whom thou wilt, & drawe vp Ieremy the prophet out of the dongeon, before he dye. 11 So Abdemelech toke the men wt him, & went to ye house of Amalech, & there vnder an almery he gat olde ragges & worne cloutes, & let the downe by a coarde, in to the dongeon to Ieremy. 12 And Abdemelech the Morian sayde vnto the prophet Ieremy: O put these ragges and cloutes vnder thine arme holes, betwixte the and the coardes: ad Ieremy dyd so. 13 So they drewe vp Ieremy with coardes and toke him out of the dongeon, and he remayned in the fore entrie of the preson.

Daniel 11:1-45

1 And in the first yeare of Darius of Media, I stode by him, to conforte him, & to strength him, 2 and now wil I shewe the the treuth. Beholde, there shal stonde vp yet thre kinges in Persia, but ye fourth shal be farre richer then they all. And when he is in the chefest power of his riches, he shal prouoke euery man agaynst the realme of Grekelonde. 3 Then shal there arise yet a mightie kinge, that shal rule with greate dominion, and do what him list. 4 And as soone as his kingdome commeth vp, it shalbe destroyed, & deuyded towarde ye foure wyndes of the heauen. They yt come after him, shall not haue soch power & dominion as he: but his kingdome shalbe scatred, yee euen amonge other the those. 5 And the kynge of ye south shalbe migthier, then his other prynces. Agaynst him there shal one make himself stroge, & shal rule his dominio wt greate power. 6 But after certayne yeares they shalbe ioyned together, & the kynges doughter of the south shall come to the kynge of the north, for to make fredshipe, but she shal not optayne the power of that arme, nether shall she be able to endure thorow his might: but she, & soch as brought her (yee & he yt begat her, & conforted her for his tyme) shalbe delyuered vp. 7 Out of ye braunches of hir rote, there shal one stonde vp in his steade: which with power of armes shal go thorow the kynges londe of the north, & handle him acordinge to his strength. As for their Idols & prynces, with their costly Iewels of golde & syluer, 8 he shal cary them awaye captyues in to Egipte, and he shal preuayle agaynst the kynge of the north certayne yeares. 9 And when he is come into ye kynges realme of ye south, he shal be fayne to turne agayne in to his owne londe. 10 Wherfore his sonnes shalbe displeased, and shal gather together a mightie greate hoost of people: and one of them shal come, and go thorow like a waterfloude: then shal he returne, and go forth with defyenge and boostinge vnto his owne londe. 11 The the kinge of ye south shalbe angrie, and shal come forth to fight agaynst the kinge of the north: Yee he shall bringe a greate multitude of people together, and a greate heape shalbe geue into his honde: 12 these shal he cary awaye wt greate pryde, for so moch as he hath cast downe so many thousandes, neuertheles he shall not preuayle. 13 For ye kinge of ye north shal gather (of the new) a greater heape of people then afore, & come forth (after a certayne tyme and yeares) with a mightie hoost & exceadinge greate good. 14 At the same tyme there shall many stonde vp agaynst the kinge of the south, so that ye wicked children of thy people also shal exalte them selues (to fulfill the vision) and then fall. 15 So the kinge of the north shall come to laye sege, and to take the stroge fensed cities: And the power of the of ye south shal not be able to abyde him, & the best men of the people shall not be so stronge, as to resist him. 16 Shortly, when he commeth, he shall handle him as he list, & no man shalbe so hardy as to stonde agaynst him. He shal stode in the pleasaunt countre, which thorow him shalbe destroyed. 17 He shal set his face wt all his power to optayne his kingdome, & to be like it. Yee that shal he do, & geue him vnto the doughters amoge women, to destroye him. But he shal fayle, nether shal he optayne his purpose. 18 After this, shall he set his face vnto the Iles, & take many of the. A prynce shal stoppe him, to do him a shame, besyde the confucion that els shal come vnto him. 19 Thus shal he turne agayne to his owne londe, stomble, & fall, and be nomore founde: 20 so he that came vpon him & dyd him violence, shal stonde in his place, & haue a pleasaunt kingdome: and after few dayes he shal be destroyed, & that nether in wrath ner in batell. 21 In his steade there shal aryse a vyle person not holde worthy of a kinges dignite: this shall come in craftely, & optayne the kingdome with fayre wordes: 22 he shal fight agaynst the armes of the mightie (& destroye them,) yee & agaynst the prynce of the couenaunt. 23 So after yt he hath taken truce with him, he shal hadle disceatfully: that he maye get vp, & ouer come him with a small flocke: 24 & so with craftynesse to get him to ye fattest place of the londe, and to deale otherwise, then ether his fathers or graudfathers dyd. For he shal destroye the thinge, ye they had robbed & spoyled, yee & all their substaunce: ymagenynge thoughtes agaynst the stroge holdes, & that for a tyme. 25 His power and herte shalbe sterred vp wt a greate armye agaynst the kinge of the south: where thorow the kinge of the south shalbe moued then vnto batell, with a greate & mightie hoost also. Neuerthelesse, he shal not be able to stonde, for they shall conspyre agaynst him. 26 Yee they yt eate of his meate, shal hurte him: so that his hoost shal fall, & many be slayne downe. 27 These two kinges shalbe mynded to do myschefe, & talke of disceate at one table: but they shal not prospere: for why, the ende shal not come yet, vnto the tyme apoynted. 28 The shall he go home agayne in to his owne londe with greate good, & set his herte agaynst the holy couenaunt, he shalbe busy agaynst it, & then returne home. 29 At the tyme appoynted he shal come agayne, & go towarde the south: So shall it happen otherwise then at the first, yet ones agayne. 30 And why, the shippes of Cythim shal come vpon him, that he maye be smytten & turne agayne: yt he maye take indignacion agaynst the couenaunt of holynes, to medle agaynst it. Yee he shal turne him, & drawe soch vnto him, as leaue the holy couenaunt. 31 He shal set mightie men to vnhalowe the sanctuary of stregth, to put downe the daylie offeringe, & to set vp the abhominable desolacion. 32 And soch as breake the couenaunt, shal he flatre with fayre wordes. But ye people that wil knowe their God, shal haue the ouerhade and prospere. 33 Those also that haue vnderstondinge amonge the people, shal enfourme the multitude: & for a longe season, they shalbe persecuted with swearde, with fyre, with captyuyte & with the takynge awaye of their goodes. 34 Now whe they fall, they shalbe set vp with a litle helpe: but many shal cleue vnto them faynedly. 35 Yee some of those which haue vnderstondynge shal be persecuted also: yt they maye be tryed, purified & clesed, till the tyme be out: for there is yet another tyme appoynted. 36 The kinge shal do what him list, he shal exalte and magnifie himself agaynst all, that is God. Yee he shall speake maruelous thinges agaynst the God of all goddes, wherin he shal prospere, so longe till the wrath be fulfilled, for the conclusion is deuysed alredy. 37 He shal not regarde the God of his fathers, but his lust shall be vpon wome: Yee he shal not care for eny God, for he shal magnifie himself aboue all. 38 In his place shal he worshipe the mightie Idols: & the god whom his fathers knewe not, shal he honoure with golde and syluer, with precious stones and pleasaunt Iewels. 39 This shal he do, sekinge helpe and sucoure at the mightie Idols and straunge goddes. Soch as wil receaue him, and take him for God, he shal geue them greate worshipe and power: yee and make them lordes of the multitude, and geue them the londe with rewardes. 40 In the latter tyme, shal the kinge of the south stryue with him: and the kinge of the north in like maner shall come agaynst him with charettes, horsmen & with a greate nauy of shippes. He shal come in to the londes, destroye and go thorow: 41 he shal entre also in to the fayre pleasaunt londe. Many cities & countrees shal decaye, excepte Edom, Moab & the best of the children of Ammon, which shal escape from his honde. 42 He shall stretch forth his hodes vpon the countrees, & the londe of Egipte shal not escape him. 43 For thorow his goinge in, he shal haue dominion ouer the treasures of syluer & golde, & ouer all the precious Iewels of Egipte, Lybia and Ethiopia. 44 Neuerthelesse the tydinges out of the east and the north shall trouble him, for the which cause he shal go forth to destroye & curse a greate multitude. 45 The tentes of his palace shall he pytch betwixte the two sees, vpon the hill of the noble sanctuary, for he shal come to the ende of it, and then shal no man helpe him.

Ezekiel 38:1-23

1 And the worde of the LORDE came vnto me, sayenge: 2 Thou sonne of man, turne thy face towarde Gog in the londe of Magog, which is the chefe prynce at Mesech and Tubal: prophecy agaynst him, 3 and saye: Thus saieth the LORDE God: O Gog thou chefe prynce of Mesech and Tubal: beholde, I wil vpon the, 4 and wil turne the aboute, and put a bytt in thy chawes: I wil bringe the forth and all thine hoost, both horse & horsmen, which be all weapened of the best fashion: a greate people, that handle altogether speares, shyldes, and swerdes: 5 the Perses, Moryans and with them the Lybians, which all beare shyldes and helmettes: 6 Gomer, and all his hoostes: the house of Thogorma out of the north quarters, and all his hoostes, yee and moch people with the. 7 Therfore prepare the, set thy self in araye with all thy people, that are come vnto the by heapes, and be thou their defence. 8 After many dayes thou shalt be visited, and in the latter yeares thou shalt come in to the lode, that hath bene destroyed with the swearde, & now is replenished agayne wt dyuerse people vpon the mountaynes of Israel, which haue loge lyen waist. Yee they be brought out of the nacions, & dwell all safe. 9 Thou shalt come vp like a stormy wether, to couer the lode, and as it were a darcke cloude: thou with all thine hoostes, and a greate multitude of people with the. 10 Morouer, thus saieth the LORDE God: At the same tyme shal many thinges come in to thy mynde, so that thou shalt ymagyn myschefe, 11 and saye: I wil vp to yonder playne londe, seinge they syt at ease, and dwell so safely (for they dwell all without eny walles, they haue nether barres nor dores) 12 to spoyle them, to robbe the, to laye honde vpon their so wel inhabited wildernesses: agaynst that people, yt is gathered together from amonge the Heithe, which haue gotten catell and good, and dwell in the myddest of the londe. 13 Then shal Saba and Dedan and the marchauntes of Tharsis wt all their Worthies, saye vnto the: Art thou come to robbe? Hast thou gathered thy people together, because thou wilt spoyle? to take syluer and golde: to cary awaye catell and good: and to haue a greate pray? 14 Therfore, o thou sonne of man, thou shalt prophecie, and saye vnto Gog: Thus saieth the LORDE God: In that daye thou shalt knowe, that my people of Israel dwelleth safe: 15 and shalt come from thy place, out of the north partes: thou and moch people wt the, which ryde vpon horses, wherof there is a greate multitude and an innumerable sorte. 16 Yee thou shalt come vpon my people of Israel, as a cloude to couer the lode. This shal come to passe in the latter dayes: I wil bringe the vp in to my londe, that the Heithen maye knowe me, when I get me honoure vpon the (o Gog) before their eyes. 17 Thus saieth the LORDE God: Thou art he, of whom I haue spoken aforetyme, by my seruauntes ye prophetes of Israel, which prophecied in those dayes & yeares, that I shulde bringe the vpon them. 18 At the same tyme, when Gog commeth vp in to the londe of Israel (saieth the LORDE God) shal my indignacio go forth in my wrath. 19 For in my gelousy and hote displeasure I haue deuysed, that there shalbe a greate trouble in the londe of Israel at that tyme. 20 The very fy?shes in the see, the foules of the ayre, the beestes of the felde, and all the men yt are vpon the earth, shal tremble for feare of me. The hilles also shalbe turned vpsidedowne, the stayres of stone shal fall, and all walles shal syncke to the grounde. 21 I wil call for a swearde vpon them in all my mountaynes, saieth the LORDE God: so that euery mans swearde shal be vpon another. 22 With pestilece and bloude wil I punysh him: stormy rayne and hale stones, fyre and brymstone, wil I cause to rayne vpon him and all his heape, yee and vpon all that greate people that is with him. 23 Thus wil I be magnified, honoured, and knowne amonge the Heithen: that they maye be sure, how yt I am ye LORDE.

And they prepared them selues to the battayll in the valley Zephata beside Maresa. 11 And Asa called vpon ye LORDE his God and sayde: LORDE, it is no differece wt ye, to helpe by fewe or by many. Helpe vs O LORDE oure God: for oure trust is in the, & in thy name are we come forth against this multitude. LORDE oure God, let no man preuayle agaynst the. 12 And the LORDE smote the Morias before Asa and before Iuda, so that they fled. 13 And Asa with ye people that was by him, folowed vpon them vnto Gerar. And the Morias fell, so that none of them remained alyue, but were smytten before the LORDE and before his hoost. And they caried exceadinge moch spoyle from thence. 14 And he smote all the cyties aboute Gerar, for a fearfulnesse of the LORDE came vpon them. And they spoyled all the cities, for there was moch spoyle in them. 15 They smote the tentes of the catell also, and toke many shepe and Camels, and came agayne to Ierusalem.

Acts 8:27-39

27 And he rose, and wente on. And beholde, a ma of the Morians lode (a chamberlayne and of auctorite with Candace ye quene of the londe of the Morians) which had the rule of all hir treasuries, ye same came to Ierusale to worshipe. 28 And returned home agayne, and satt vpon his charet, and red the prophet Esay. 29 The sprete sayde vnto Philippe: Go neare, and ioyne thy selfe to yonder charet. 30 The ranne Philippe vnto him, and herde him rede the prophet Esay, and sayde: Vnderstodest thou what thou readest? 31 He sayde: How can I, excepte some ma enfourme me?And he desyred Philippe, that he wolde come vp, and syt with him. 32 The tenoure of the scripture which he red, was this: He was led as a shepe to be slayne, and as a lambe voycelesse before his sherer, so opened he not his mouth. 33 In his humblenesse is his iudgment exalted. Who shal declare his generacion? for his life is taken awaye from the earth. 34 Then answered the chamberlayne vnto Philippe, and sayde: I praye the, of whom speaketh the prophet this? of himselfe, or of some other man? 35 Philippe opened his mouth, and beganne at this scripture, and preached him the Gospell of Iesus. 36 And as they wete on their waye, they came to a water. And the chamberlayne sayde: Beholde, here is water, what hyndereth me to be baptysed? 37 Philippe sayde: Yf thou beleue from thy whole herte, thou mayest. He answered, and sayde: I beleue, that Iesus Christ is the sonne of God. 38 And he commaunded to holde styll the charet, and they wente downe in to the water, both Philippe and the chamberlayne. And he baptysed him. 39 But whan they were come vp out of the water, the sprete of the LORDE toke Philippe awaye. And the Chamberlayne sawe him nomore. But he wente on his waye reioysinge.
