1 In the euenynge came the two angels vnto Sodome. And Lot sat vnder the gate of the cite. And whe he sawe them, he rose vp for to mete them, and bowed him self downe to the grounde vpon his face, 2 & sayde: Se lordes, turne in (I praye you) in to youre seruauntes house, and tarye all night: let youre fete be wasshen, so maye ye ryse tomorow by tymes, and go youre waye. Neuertheles they sayde: Nay, but we wyll byde in the stretes all night. 3 Then compelled he them sore: and they turned in vnto him, and came in to his house. And he made them a feast, and baked swete cakes, and they ate. 4 But before they wente to rest, the men of the cite of Sodome came and compased the house rounde aboute, yonge and olde, all the people from all quarters, 5 and called Lot, and sayde vnto him: Where are the me that came vnto the to night? Bringe them out here vnto vs, that we maye knowe them. 6 And Lot wente out at the dore vnto the, and shut the dore after him, 7 and sayde: O brethren, do not so wickedly. 8 Beholde, I haue two doughters, which yet haue knowne no man: them will I brynge out vnto you, do with them as it liketh you. Onely do nothinge vnto these men of God, for therfore are they come vnder the shadowe of my rofe. 9 But they sayde: Come thou hither. Then sayde they: Camest not thou onely herin as a straunger, and wilt thou now be a iudge? Wel, we will deale worse with the the with them.And they pressed sore vpon ye man Lot. And whan they ranne to, and wolde haue broken vp the dore, 10 the men put out their hondes, and pulled Lot vnto them in to the house, and shut to the dore. 11 And the men at ye dore of the house were smytte with blyndnesse both small and greate, so that they coude not fynde the dore. 12 And ye men saide vnto Lot: Hast thou yet here eny sonne in lawe, or sonnes or doughters? Who so euer belongeth vnto the in the cite, brynge him out of this place: 13 for we must destroye this place, because the crye of them is greate before the LORDE, which hath sent vs to destroye them. 14 Then wente Lot forth, and spake to his sonnes in lawe, which shulde haue maried his doughters, and sayde: O stonde vp, and get you out of this place, for the LORDE wyll destroye this cite. Neuertheles they toke it but for a sporte. 15 Now whan the mornynge arose, the angels caused Lot to spede him, and sayde: Stonde vp, take thy wife & thy two doughters which are at hande, that thou also perishe not in the synne of this cite. 16 But whyle he prolonged the tyme, the men caught him and his wife, and his two doughters by the hande (because the LORDE was mercifull vnto him,) and brought him forth, & set him without the cite. 17 And whe they had brought him out, they sayde: Saue thy soule, and loke not behynde the, nether stonde thou in all this countre: Saue thy self vpon the mountayne, that thou perish not. 18 Then sayde Lot vnto the: Oh no my LORDE, 19 beholde, in as moch as thy seruaut hath founde grace in thy sight, now make ye mercy greate, which thou hast shewed vnto me, in that thou sauest my soule alyue. I can not saue my self vpon the mountayne. There might some mysfortune fall vpon me, that I shulde dye. 20 Beholde, here is a cite by, that I maye flye vnto, and it is a litle one: let me saue myself there in. Is it not a litle one, that my soule maye lyue? 21 Then sayde he vnto him: Beholde, I haue loked vpon the in this poynte also, that I will not ouerthrowe the cite, wherof thou hast spoken. 22 Haist the, and saue thy self there: for I can do nothinge tyll thou be come thither. Therfore is the cite called Zoar. 23 And the Sonne was vp vpon the earth, whan Lot came in to Zoar. 24 Then the LORDE caused brymstone and fyre to rayne downe from the LORDE out of heauen vpon Sodoma and Gomorra, 25 and ouerthrew those cities, the whole region, and all that dwelt in the cities, and that that grew vpon the earth. 26 And his wife loked behynde her, and was turned into a pillar of salt. 27 Abraham rose vp early in the mornynge, and gat him vnto the place, where he had stonde before the LORDE, 28 and turned his face towarde Sodoma and Gomorra, and all ye londe of that countre, and loked. And beholde, there rose vp a smoke from ye countre, as it had bene ye smoke of a fornace. 29 For whan God destroyed ye cities of the region, he thought vpon Abraham, and conueyed Lot out of the cities which he ouerthrew, wherin Lot dwelt. 30 And Lot departed out of Zoar, and dwelt in the mountaynes with both his daughters (for he was afrayed to tary at Zoar) and so remayned he in a caue wt both his daughters. 31 Then sayde ye elder vnto the yonger: Oure father is olde, and there is not a man more vpon earth, that can come in vnto vs after the maner of all the worlde. 32 Come therfore, let vs geue oure father wyne to drynke, and lye with him, that we maye saue sede of oure father. 33 So they gaue their father wyne to drynke that same night. And the elder doughter wente in, and laye with hir father: and he perceaued it not, nether when she laye downe, ner when she rose vp. 34 On the morow the elder sayde vnto the yonger: Beholde, yesternight laye I with my father: let vs geue him wyne to drynke this night also: that thou mayest go in and lye with him, that we maye saue sede of oure father. 35 So they gaue their father wyne to drynke that night also: And the yonger arose like wyse, and laye with him: & he perceaued it not, nether when she laye downe, ner when she rose vp. 36 Thus were both the doughters of Lot with childe by their father. 37 And the elder bare a sonne, and called him Moab, of whom come ye Moabytes vnto this daye. 38 And ye yonger bare a sonne also, and called him the sonne Ammi, of whom come the children of Ammon vnto this daye.

4 And he toke them of their handes, & fashioned it wt a grauer. And they made a molten calfe, and sayde: These are thy goddes (O Israel) that brought the out of the londe of Egipte.
1 And there was geuen me a rede lyke vnto a rodd, and it was sayde vnto me: Ryse and mete the teple of God, and the aultre, and them that worshippe therin: 2 and the quyre which is within the temple, cast out, and mete it not: for it is geuen vnto the Gentyles, and ye holy cite shal they treade vnderfote xlij. monethes. 3 And I wil geue power vnto my two wytnesses, and they shal prophesy .M.ijc. and lx. dayes clothed in sacke cloth. 4 These are two olyue trees, and two candelstyckes, stondinge before the God of the earth. 5 And if eny man wil hurt them, fyre shal procede out of their mouthes, and consume their enemyes. And yf eny ma wil hurt the, this wyse muste he be kylled. 6 These haue power to shut heauen, that it rayne not in the dayes of their prophesyinge: and haue power ouer waters, to turne them to bloud, and to smyte the earth with all maner plages, as often as they will. 7 And when they haue fynisshed their testimony, the beest that cam out of the bottomlesse pytt, shal make warre agaynst the, and shal ouer come them, and kyll the. 8 And their bodies shal lye in the stretes of the greate cite, which spiritually is called zodom and Egypte, where oure LORDE is crucified. 9 And some of the people and kynredes, and tonges, & of the nacios, shal se their bodies, thre dayes, and an halfe, and shal not suffre their bodies to be put in graues. 10 And they that dwell vpo the earth, shal reioyce ouer them and be glad, and shal send giftes one to another: for these two prophetes vexed them that dwelt on the earth. 11 And after thre dayes and an halfe the sprete of life from God, entred in to them. And they stode vp vpon their fete: & greate feare came vpon them which sawe them. 12 And they herde a greate voyce from heaue, sayenge vnto them: Come vp hidder. And they ascended vp in to heaue in a cloude, and their enemyes sawe the. 13 And the same houre was there a greate earthquake, & the tenth parte of the cite fell, and in the earthquake were slayne names of men seuen M. and the remnaunt were feared, and gaue glory to God of heauen. 14 The seconde wo is past, and beholde, the thyrd wo wyl come anone. 15 And the seuenth angel blewe, and ther were made greate voyces in heauen, sayege: the kyngdoms of this worlde are oure LORDES and his Christes, and he shal reigne for eurmore. 16 And the foure and twentye Elders, which sat before God on their seatts, fell vpon their faces, and worshipped God 17 sayenge: we geue the thankes LORDE God allmyghte: which art and wast, and art to come, for thou hast receaued thy greate might, and hast raygned. 18 And the Heythen were angry, & thy wrath is come, and the tyme of the deed that they shulde be iudged, and that thou shuldest geue rewarde vnto thy seruautes the prophettes and saynctes, and to the that feare thy name, small & greate: and shuldest destroye them which destroye the earth. 19 And the temple of God was opened in heauen, and there was sene in his temple the arcke of his testament: and there folowed lightnynges, and voyces, and thondrynges and earth quake, and a greate hayle.

8 Bewarre lest eny ma spoyle you thorow philosophy and disceatfull vanite after the tradicions of men, and after the ordinauces of the worlde, and not after Christ.
1 Brethren, I wolde not that ye shulde be ignoraunt of this, that oure fathers were all vnder the cloude, and all passed thorow the see, 2 & were all baptised vnder Moses in the cloude and in the see, 3 and dyd all eate of one spirituall meate, 4 and dyd all drynke of one spirituall drynke: but they dronke of the spirituall rocke that folowed the, which rocke was Christ. 5 Neuertheles in many of them had God no delyte, for they were smytten downe in the wyldernesse. 6 These are ensamples vnto vs, yt we shulde not lust after euell thinges, as they lusted. 7 Nether be ye worshippers off ymages, as were some of them. Acordinge as it is wrytte: The people sat downe to eate and drynke, and rose vp to playe. 8 Nether let vs commytte whordome, as some of them comytted whordome, and fell in one daye thre & twenty thousande. 9 Nether let vs tempte Christ, as some of them tempted him, and were destroyed of serpetes. 10 Nether murmur ye, as some of them murmured, and were destroyed thorow the destroyer. 11 All these thinges happened vnto the for ensamples, but they are wrytte to warne vs, vpon whom the ende of ye worlde is come. 12 Therfore let him that thinketh he stondeth, take hede, lest he fall. 13 There hath yet no teptacion ouertaken you, but soch as foloweth the nature of man. Neuertheles God is faithfull, which shal not suffre you to be tempted aboue youre strength, but shal in the myddes of ye temptacion make a waye to come out, that ye maye beare it. 14 Wherfore my dearly beloued, fle from worshippinge of Idols. 15 I speake vnto them which haue discrecio, iudge ye what I saye. 16 The cuppe of thakesgeuynge wherwith we geue thankes, is it not the partakinge of the bloude of Christ? 17 The bred that we breake, is it not ye partakinge of ye body of Christ? For we many, are one bred & one body, in as moch as we all are partakers of one bred. 18 Beholde Israel after the flesshe. They yt eate the sacrifices, are they not partakers of the altare? 19 What shal I now saye then? Shal I saye that the Idoll is enythinge? Or that it which is offred vnto the Idoll is eny thinge? 20 Nay. But this I saye, that loke what the Heythen offre, that offre they vnto deuels, and not vnto God. Now wolde I not that ye shulde be in the fellishippe of deuels. 21 Ye can not drynke of the cuppe of the LORDE and of the cuppe of the deuels. Ye can not be partakers of the LORDES table, and of the table of deuels. 22 Or wyl we prouoke the LORDE? I maye do all thinges, but all thinges are not profitable. 23 I maye do all thinges, but all thinges edifye not. 24 Let noman seke his awne profit, but let euery man seke anothers welth. 25 What soeuer is solde in the fleshmarket, that eate, and axe no question for conscience sake. 26 For the earth is the LORDES, and all yt therin is. 27 Yf eny of the yt beleue not, byd you to a feast, and yf ye be disposed to go, what soeuer is set before you, that eate, axinge no question for conscience sake. 28 But yf eny man saye vnto you: This is offred vnto Idols, the eate not of it, for his sake that shewed it, and for hurtinge of conscience. (The earth is the LORDES and all that therin is.) 29 Neuertheles I speake of consciece, not thine, but of ye other. For why shulde my liberty be iudged of another mas coscience? 30 For yf I take my parte wt thankesgeuynge, why am I euell spoken of, for yt thinge wherfore I geue thankes? 31 Therfore whether ye eate or drynke, or what so euer ye do, do all to ye prayse of God. 32 Be not ye an occasion of fallinge, nether to the Iewes, ner to the Gentyles, ner to the congregacion of God, 33 eue as I also please all men in all thinges, not sekinge myne awne profit, but the profit of many, that they mighte be saued. Folowe ye me, as I do Christ.
1 I commende you 2 brethren, that ye remembre me in all poyntes, and kepe the ordinaunces, eue as I delyuered them vnto you. 3 But I certifye you, that Christ is the heade of euery man. As for ye man, he is the heade of ye woman, but God is Christes heade. 4 Euery man that prayeth or prophecieth, and hath eny thinge on his heade, shameth his heade. 5 But euery woman that prayeth or prophecieth with vncouered heade, dishonesteth hir heade. For it is euen a lyke moch as yf she were shauen. 6 Yf the woma be not couered, let hir heer also be cut of. But yf it be vncomely for a woman to haue hir heer cut of or to be shauen, then let hir couer hir heade. 7 Neuertheles the man oughte not to couer his heade, for so moch as he is the ymage and glory of God: but the woma is the glory of the man. 8 For the man is not of the woman, but the woman of the man. 9 Nether was the man created for the womans sake, but the woma for the mans sake. 10 Therfore ought the woman to haue a power vpon hir heade, for the angels sakes. 11 Neuertheles nether is the man without ye woman, nether the woman without the ma in the LORDE. 12 For as the woman is of the man, euen so commeth the man also by the woman, but all of God. 13 Iudge ye by yor selues, whether it be comly, yt a woma praye before God bare headed? 14 Or doth not nature teach you, yt it is a shame for a man 15 yf he weere loge heer, & a prayse to ye woma, yf she weere loge heer? For hir heer is geue heer to couer her withall. 16 But yf there be eny man amoge you that hath lust to stryue, let him knowe, that we haue no soch custome, nether the congregacions of God. 17 But this must I warne you of: I commende it not, that ye come together not after a better maner but after a worse. 18 First, whan ye come together in the congregacion, I heare, that there are discensions amonge you, and I partly beleue it. 19 For there must be sectes amonge you, that they which are perfecte amonge you, mighte be knowne. 20 Now whan ye come together, the LORDES supper can not be kepte. For whan it shulde be kepte, euery ma taketh his awne supper afore. 21 And one is hogrie, another is dronke. Haue ye not houses to eate and drynke in? 22 Or despyse ye ye cogregacion of God, and shame them that haue not? What shal I saye vnto you? Shal I prayse you? in this prayse I you not. 23 That which I delyuered vnto you, receaued I of the LORDE. For the LORDE Iesus the same nighte in the which he was betrayed, toke the bred, 24 & gaue thankes, and brake it, and sayde: Take ye, & eate ye, this is my body, which is broken for you. This do in the remembraunce of me. 25 After the same maner also he toke ye cuppe whan supper was done, and sayde: This cuppe is the new Testament in my bloude, this do (as oft as ye drynke it) in the remebrauce of me. 26 For as oft as ye shal eate of this bred, & drynke of this cuppe, ye shal shewe the LORDES death, vntyll he come. 27 Wherfore who soeuer shal eate off this bred, and drynke off this cuppe of the LORDE vnworthely, shalbe giltye of the body and bloude of the LORDE. 28 But let a man examen himselfe, and so let him eate of this bred, and drynke of this cuppe. 29 For he that eateth and drynketh vnworthely, eateth & drynketh his awne damnacion, because he maketh no differece of the LORDES body. 30 Therfore are there so many weake and sicke amoge you, and many slepe. 31 For yf we iudged oure selues, we shulde not be iudged. 32 But whan we are iudged, we are chastened of ye LORDE, that we shulde not be daned with the worlde. 33 Wherfore my brethren, whan ye come together to eate, tary one for another. 34 But yf eny man honger, let him eate at home, that ye come not together vnto codempnacion. As for other thinges, I wil set them in order whan I come.
1 As concernynge spirituall giftes (brethren) I wolde not that ye were ignoraunt. 2 Ye knowe that ye were Heythe and wente youre wayes vnto dome Idols, eue as ye were led. 3 Wherfore I declare vnto you, that no man speakynge thorow the sprete of God, defyeth Iesus. And no man can saye that Iesus is the LORDE, but by the holy goost. 4 There are dyuerse giftes, yet but one sprete: 5 and there are dyuerse offices, yet but one LORDE: 6 and there are dyuerse operacions yet is there but one God, which worketh all in all. 7 The giftes of the sprete are geuen vnto euery man to profit the cogregacion. 8 To one is geuen thorow the sprete the vtteraunce of wissdome: to another is geuen the vtteraunce of knowlege acordinge to the same sprete: 9 to another, faith in the same sprete: to another, the giftes of healinge in the same sprete: 10 to another, power to do miracles: to another, prophecienge: to another, iudgment to discerne spretes: to another, dyuerse tunges: to another, the interpretacion of tunges. 11 These all doth ye same onely sprete worke, and distributeth vnto euery man, acordinge as he will. 12 For as the body is one, and hath yet many membres, neuertheles all the membres of the body though they be many, are yet but one body: euen so Christ also. 13 For we are all baptysed in one sprete to be one body, whether we be Iewes or Gentyles, whether we be bonde or fre, and haue all dronke of one sprete. 14 For the body also is not one membre, but many. 15 Yf the fote saye: I am not ye hande, therfore am I not a membre of the body,is he therfore not a membre of ye body? 16 And yf the eare saye: I am not the eye, therfore am I not a membre of the body, is he therfore not a membre of the body? 17 Yf all the body were an eye, where were then the hearinge? Yf all were hearinge, where then the smellinge? 18 But now hath God set the membres, euery one seuerally in the body, as it hath pleased him. 19 Neuertheles yf all the mebres were one membre, where were then the body? 20 But now are the membres many, yet is the body but one. 21 The eye can not saye vnto the hande: I haue no nede of the: or agayne the heade vnto the fete, I haue no nede of you: 22 but rather a greate deale the mebres of the body which seme to be most feble, are most necessary: 23 and vpon those membres of the body which we thinke least honest, put we most honestie on: and oure vncomly partes haue most beutye on. 24 For oure honest membres neade it not. But God hath so measured ye body, and geuen most honoure vnto that mebre which had nede, 25 that there shulde be no stryfe in the body, but that the membres shulde indifferently care one for another. And yf one membre suffre, all the membres suffre with him: 26 and yf one membre be had in honoure, all the membres are glad with him also. 27 But ye are the body of Christ, and membres, euery one of another. 28 And God hath ordeyned in the congregacion, first the Apostles, secodly prophetes, thirdly teachers, then doers of miracles, after that the giftes of healinge, helpers, gouerners, dyuerse tunges. 29 Are they all Apostles? Are they all prophetes? Are they all teachers? Are they all doers of miracles? 30 Haue they all the giftes of healinge? Speake they all with tunges? Can they all interprete? 31 But covet ye the best giftes. And yet shewe I you a more excellent waye.
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.
1 Laboure for loue. Couet spirituall giftes, but specially that ye maye prophecye. 2 For he yt speaketh with tunges, speaketh not vnto men, but vnto God: for no man heareth him. Howbeit in ye sprete he speaketh misteries. 3 But he that prophecieth, speaketh vnto men to edifienge, & to exhortacion, and to coforte. 4 He that speaketh with tunges, edifieth himselfe: but he that prophecieth, edifieth the cogregacion. 5 I wolde that ye all spake with tunges, but rather that ye prophecied. For greater is he that prophecieth, then he that speaketh wt tuges: excepte he also expounde it, that the congregacion maye haue edifienge. 6 But now brethren yf I come vnto you, and speake with tunges, what shal I profet you, excepte I speake vnto you ether by reuelacion or by knowlege, or by prophecienge, or by doctryne? 7 Likewyse is it also in ye thinges that geue sounde, and yet lyue not: whether it be a pype or an harpe, excepte they geue distyncte soundes from them, how shal it be knowne what is pyped or harped? 8 And yf the trope geue an vncertayne sounde, who wil prepare himselfe to the battayll? 9 Euen so ye likewyse, whan ye speake with tunges, excepte ye speake playne wordes, how shal it be knowne what is spoke? for ye shal but speake in ye ayre. 10 So many kyndes of voyces are in the worlde, and none of them is without significacion. 11 Yf I knowe not now what ye voyce meaneth, I shalbe an aleaunt vnto him that speaketh: & he that speaketh, shalbe an aleaut vnto me. 12 Eue so ye (for so moch as ye couet spirituall giftes (seke yt ye maye haue plentye to the edifienge of the congregacion. 13 Wherfore let him that speaketh wt tunges, praye, that he maye interprete also. 14 Yf I praye with tunges, my sprete prayeth, but my vnderstodinge bryngeth no man frute. 15 How shal it be then? Namely thus: I wil praye with ye sprete, and wil praye with the vnderstodinge also: I wil synge psalmes in the sprete, and wil synge spalmes with ye vnderstondinge also. 16 But whan thou geuest thankes with ye sprete, how shal he that occupieth the rowme of the vnlearned, saye Ame at thy geuynge of thankes, seynge he knoweth not what thou sayest? 17 Thou geuest well thankes, but the other is not edifyed. 18 I thanke my God, that I speake with tunges more then ye all. 19 Yet had I leuer in the cogregacion to speake fyue wordes with my vnderstondinge yt I maye enfourme other also, rather then ten thousande wordes with tunges. 20 Brethren be not children in vnderstondinge, howbeit as concerninge maliciousnes be childre, but in vnderstondinge be parfecte. 21 In the lawe it is wrytten: With other tunges and with other lippes wyl I speake vnto this people, and yet shal they not so heare me, sayeth the LORDE 22 Therfore are tunges for a token, not to the that beleue, but to them that beleue not. Contrary wyse, prophecienge, not to them that beleue not, but to them which beleue. 23 Yf the whole cogregacion now came together in to one place, & spake all with tunges, and there came in they that are vnlearned, or they which beleue not, shulde they not saye, that ye were out of youre wyttes? 24 But yff all prophecied, and there came in one yt beleueth not, or one vnlerned, he shulde be rebuked of them all, and iudged of all, 25 and so shulde the secrete of his hert be opened, and so shulde he fall downe vpon his face, worshippinge God, and knowleginge, that of a trueth God is in you. 26 How is it then brethren? Whan ye come together, euery one hath a psalme, hath doctryne, hath a tunge, hath a reuelacion, hath an interpretacion. Let all be done to edifyenge. 27 Yf eny ma speake with tunges, let him do it him selfe beynge the seconde, or at the most him selfe beynge ye thirde, and one after another, and let one interprete it. 28 But yf there be not an interpreter, then let him kepe sylence in the congregacion, howbeit let him speake to himselfe and to God. 29 As for the prophetes, let two or thre speake and let the other iudge. 30 But yf eny reuelacion be made vnto another that sytteth, then let the first holde his peace. 31 Ye maye all prophecye one after another that they all maye lerne, and that all maye haue comforte. 32 And the spretes of the prophetes are subiecte vnto the prophetes. 33 For God is not a God off discension, but off peace, like as in all congregacions off the sayntes. 34 Let youre wyues kepe sylence in the cogregacion, for it shal not be permytted vnto the to speake, but to be vnder obedience, as ye lawe sayeth also. 35 But yf they wyll lerne eny thinge, let them axe their hussbades at home. For it becommeth not weme to speake in the congregacion. 36 Or spronge the worde of God from amonge you? Or is it come vnto you onely? 37 Yf eny man thynke himselfe to be a prophet, or spirituall, let him knowe what I wryte vnto you, for they are the commaundementes of the LORDE. 38 But yf eny man be ignoraunt, let him be ignoraunt. 39 Wherfore brethren, couet to prophecye, and forbyd not to speake with tunges. 40 Let all thinges be done honestly and in order.
1 I declare vnto you brethren, the Gospell that I haue preached vnto you (which ye haue also accepted, and in the which ye stode, 2 by the which also ye are saued) after what maner I preached it vnto you, yf ye haue kepte it, excepte ye haue beleued in vayne. 3 For first of all I delyuered vnto you that which I also receaued, how that Christ dyed for oure synnes acordinge to the scriptures, 4 and that he was buried, and that he rose agayne ye thirde daye acordinge to the scriptures, 5 and that he was sene of Cephas, then of the twolue: 6 after that was he sene of mo then fyue hundreth brethren at once, wherof there are yet many alyue, but some are fallen aslepe. 7 Afterwarde was he sene of Iames, then of all the Apostles. 8 Last of all was he sene of me also, as of one borne out of due tyme. 9 For I am ye leest of the Apostles, which am not worthy to be called an Apostle, because I persecuted the congregacion of God. 10 But by the grace of God I am that I am. And his grace in me hath not bene vayne, but I haue laboured more then they all: howbeit not I but the grace of God which is wt me. 11 Now whether it be I or they, thus haue we preached, and thus haue ye beleued. 12 But yf Christ be preached, that he is rysen from the deed, how saye then some amoge you, that there is no resurreccion of the deed? 13 Yf there be no resurreccio of the deed, then is Christ not rysen. 14 Yf Christ be not rysen, then is oure preachinge in vayne,and youre faith is also in vayne: 15 yee and we are founde false witnesses of God, because we haue testified agaynst God, that he hath raysed vp Christ, whom he hath not raysed vp, yf the deed ryse not agayne. 16 For yf the deed ryse not agayne, the is Christ also not rysen agayne. 17 But yf Christ be not rysen agayne, then is youre faith in vayne, and ye are yet in youre synnes: 18 they also that are falle a slepe in Christ, are perished. 19 Yf in this life onely we hope on Christ, then are we of all men the most miserable. 20 But now is Christ rysen from the deed, and is become ye first frutes of them that slepe. 21 For by one man commeth death, and by one man the resurreccion of the deed. 22 For as they all dye in Adam, so shal they all be made alyue in Christ, 23 but euery one in his order. The first is Christ, then they that beloge vnto Christ, whan he commeth. 24 Then the ende, wha he shal delyuer vp the kyngdome vnto God the father, whan he shal put downe all rule, and all superiorite, & power. 25 For he must raygne, tyll he haue put all his enemies vnder his fete. 26 The last enemye that shal be destroyed, is death, 27 for he hath put all thinges vnder his fete. But wha he sayeth, that all thinges are put vnder him, it is manifest that he is excepted, which put all thinges vnder him. 28 Whan all thinges shalbe subdued vnto him, then shal the sonne himselfe also be subiecte vnto him, which put all thinges vnder him, that God maye be all in all. 29 Or els what do they which are baptised ouer ye deed, yf the deed ryse not at all? Why are they then baptysed ouer the deed? 30 And why stonde we in ioperdy euery houre? 31 By oure reioysinge which I haue in Christ Iesu or LORDE, I dye daylie. 32 That I haue foughte with beestes at Ephesus after ye maner of men, what helpeth it me, yf the deed ryse not agayne? Let vs eate and drynke, for tomorow we shal dye. 33 Be not ye disceaued. Euell speakinges corruppe good maners. 34 Awake righte vp, and synne not: for some haue not ye knowlege of God. This I saye to youre shame. 35 But some man mighte saye: How shal the deed aryse? And with what maner off body shal they come? 36 Thou foole, yt which thou sowest is not quyckened, excepte it dye. 37 And what sowest thou? thou sowest not ye body that shalbe, but a bare corne, namely of wheate, or of some other. 38 But God geueth it a body as he wil, and vnto euery one of ye sedes his owne body. 39 All flesshe is not one maner of flesshe, but there is one maner flesshe of men, another of beastes, another of fisshes, another of byrdes. 40 And there are heauenly bodies, and there are earthy bodies: but the heauenly haue one glory, and ye earthy another. 41 The Sonne hath one clearnes, the Moone hath another clearnesse, and the starres haue another clearnesse, for one starre excelleth another in clearnesse: 42 Euen so the resurreccion of the deed. It is sowne in corrupcion,and shal ryse in vncorrupcion: 43 It is sowne in dishonoure, & shal ryse in glory:It is sowne in weaknesse, and shal ryse in power: It is sowne a naturall body, & shal ryse a spirituall body. 44 Yf there be a naturall body, there is a spirituall body also. 45 As it is wrytten: The first man Adam was made in to a naturall life, and the last Ada in to a spiritual life. 46 Howbeit the spirituall body is not the first, but ye naturall, and then the spirituall. 47 The first man is of the earth, earthy: ye seconde ma is fro heaue, heauely. 48 As the earthy is, soch are they also that are earthy: and as ye heauenly is, soch are they also yt are heauenly. 49 And as we haue borne the ymage of the earthy, so shal we beare the ymage of the heauenly also. 50 This I saye brethren, that flesh & bloude can not inheret ye kyngdome of God: nether shal corrupcion inheret vncorrupcion. 51 Beholde, I saye vnto you a mystery: We shal not all slepe, but we shall all be chaunged, 52 and that sodenly and in the twinklynge of an eye, at the tyme of the last trompe. For the trompe shal blowe, and the deed shal ryse vncorruptible, and we shalbe chaunged. 53 For this corruptible must put on vncorrupcion, and this mortall must put on immortalite. 54 But whan this corruptible shal put on vncorrupcion, and this mortall shal put on immortalite, the shal the worde be fulfylled that is wrytte: 55 Death is swalowed vp in victory. Death, where is thy stynge? Hell, where is yi victory? 56 The stynge of death is synne: The strength of synne is the lawe. 57 But thankes be vnto God, which hath geue vs the victory thorow oure LORDE Iesus Christ. 58 Therfore my deare brethre, be ye stedfast, vnmoueable, & all waye riche in the worke of the LORDE, for as moch as ye knowe, that youre laboure is not in vayne in the LORDE.
1 Concernynge the gadderynge that is made for the sayntes, as I haue ordeyned in the congregacions of Galacia, euen so do ye also. 2 Vpon some Sabbath daye let euery one of you put aside by him selfe, and laye vp what so euer he thinketh mete, that the colleccion be not to gather whan I come. 3 Whan I am come, whom so euer ye shal alowe by youre letters, the wyll I sende to brynge youre liberalite vnto Ierusalem. 4 Neuertheles yf it be mete that I go thither also, they shal go with me. 5 But I wil come vnto you, whan I go thorow Macedonia: for thorow Macedonia wyl I take my iourney. 6 With you peradueture wil I abyde, or els wynter, that ye maye brynge me on my waye, whither so euer I go. 7 I wyl not se you now in my passage, for I hope to abyde a whyle with you, yf the LORDE shal suffre me. 8 But I wil tary at Ephesus vntyll whitsontyde. 9 For a greate and frutefull dore is opened vnto me, and there are many aduersaries. 10 Yf Timotheus come, se that he be without feare with you, for he worketh ye worke of the, LORDE as I do. 11 Let no man therfore despyse him, but conuaye him forth in peace, that he maye come vnto me, for I loke for him with the brethren. 12 As for brother Apollo, be ye sure, that I greatly desyred him to come vnto you with the brethre. And his mynde was not at all to come at this tyme,but he wyl come wha he hath oportunyte. 13 Watch ye, stonde fast in the faith, quyte you like men, and be stronge: 14 let all youre thinges be done in loue. 15 But brethren (ye knowe the house off Stephana, that they are the first frutes in Achaia, and that they haue appoynted the selues to mynister vnto the sayntes) 16 I exhorte you to be obedient vnto soche, and to all that helpe and laboure. 17 I am glad of the comynge of Stephana and Fortunatus, and Achaicus. For loke what was lackynge vnto me on youre parte, yt haue they suppleed: 18 they haue refresshed my sprete and youres. Knowe them therfore that are soch. 19 The congregacions of Asia salute you. Aquila and Priscilla salute you moch in the LORDE, and so doth the cogregacion that is in their house. 20 All the brethren salute you. Salute ye one another with an holy kysse. 21 The salutacion of me Paul wt myne awne hande. 22 Yf eny ma loue not the LORDE Iesus Christ, the same be Anathema Maharan Matha. 23 The grace of the LORDE Iesus Christ be with you. 24 My loue be with you all in Christ Iesu. Amen.
15 and haue forsaken the righte waye, and are gone astraye: folowinge the waye of Balaam the sonne of Bosor, which loued the rewarde of vnrighteousnes:
1 Dearly beleued, beleue not ye euery sprete, but proue the spretes, whether they be of God. For many false prophetes are gone out in to the worlde.
25 And Elias sayde vnto Baals prophetes: Chose ye one bullock, and do ye it first (for ye are many) and call ye vpon the name of youre god, & laye no fyre theron. 26 And they toke the bullock which he gaue them, & prepared it, & called vpon the name of Baal from the mornynge vntyll the noone daye, and sayde: O Baal heare vs. But there was nether voyce ner answere. And they hopped aboute the altare, as their vse was to do. 27 Now whan it was noone daye, Elias mocked them, and sayde: Crye loude. For he is a god, peradueture he is musynge, or hath somwhat to do, or is gone some iourneye, or happlye he slepeth, so that he wolde be waked vp. 28 And they cried loude, and prouoked the selues with knyues & botkens, (as their maner was) tyll ye bloude folowed. 29 But whan ye noone daye was past, they prophecied vntyll the tyme that the meatofferynge shulde be offered, & there was nether voyce ner answere, ner one to regarde them.
19 Shal the caruer make him a carued ymage? and shal the goldsmyth couer him with golde, or cast him in to a fourme of syluer plates?
8 They that holde of vayne vanyties, wil forsake his mercy.
1 Ye shall make you no Idols ner ymage, and ye shal reare you vp no piler, ner set vp eny markstone in youre londe, to bowe youre selues therto. For I am the LORDE youre God.
19 & cast their goddes in the fyre. Notwithstodinge those were no goddes but the workes of mens hondes, of wodd or stone, therfore haue they destroyed them.
18 What helpe than wil ye ymage do, whom the workman hath fashioned? Or the vayne cast ymage, wherin because the craftesman putteth his trust, therfore maketh he domme Idols?
22 Morouer yf ye destroye the syluer workes of youre Idols, and cast awaye the golden coapes that ye deckt them withall (as fylthynes) and saie, get you hence:
5 Let youre conuersacion be without couetousnes, and be content with that ye haue allready, for he hath sayde: I wyl not fayle the nether forsake the,
9 Wherfore all caruers of Idols are but vayne, and their laboure lost. They must beare recorde them selues, that (seinge they can nether se ner vnderstonde) they shalbe confounded. 10 Who shulde now make a god, or fashio an Idol, that is profitable for nothinge? 11 Beholde all the felashippe of the must be brought to confucion. Let all the workmasters of them come and stonde together from amonge men: they must be abashed and confouded one with another. 12 The smyth taketh yron, and tempreth it with hote coles, and fashioneth it with hammers, & maketh it wt all the strength of his armes: Yee somtyme he is faynt for very hunger, and so thurstie, that he hath no more power.
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.
3 Thou shalt haue none other Goddes in my sight.
