For how greate thinges haue we herde done at Capernau? Do the same here also in thine owne countre. 24 But he saide: Verely I saye vnto you: There is no prophet accepted in his owne countre. 25 Neuertheles of a trueth I saye vnto you: There were many wedowes in Israel in ye tyme of Elias, wha the heaue was shut thre yeares and sixe monethes, and whan there was a greate derth in all the lande: 26 & to none of the was Elias sent, but onely vnto Sarepta of the Sydonyans to a wedowe. 27 And many lepers were there in Israel in the tyme of Eliseus ye prophet, and none of the was clensed, saue onely Naaman of Syria. 28 And as many as were in the synagoge, wha they herde yt, were fylled with wrath. 29 And they rose vp, and thrust him out of the cite, and led him vp to the edge of the hyll whervpo their cite was buylded, that they might cast him downe headlynge. 30 But he wente his waye euen thorow the myddest of them, 31 and came to Capernaum a cite of Galile, and taught the vpo the Sabbathes. 32 And they wondred at his doctryne, for his preachinge was with power. 33 And in the Synagoge there was a man possessed with a foule deuell, & he cryed loude, 34 and sayde: Let me alone, what haue we to do wt the thou Iesus of Nazareth? Art thou come to destroye vs? I knowe ye who thou art, euen the Holy of God. 35 And Iesus rebuked him and sayde: holde thy tuge, and departe out of him. And the deuell threw hi in the myddest amonge them, and departed from him, and dyd him no harme. 36 And there came a feare ouer the all, and they spake amonge themselues, and sayde: What maner of thinge is this? He commaundeth the foule spretes with auctorite and power, and they departe out. 37 And ye fame of him was noysed thorow out all the places of ye countre rounde aboute. 38 And he rose vp out of the synagoge, and came in to Symons house.

And he layed his hades vpon euery one of the, & made the whole. 41 The deuels also departed out of many, criege and sayenge: Thou art Christ the sonne of God. And he rebuked the, & suffred them not to speake: for they knewe that he was Christ. 42 But wha it was daye, he wete out in to a deserte place. And the people sought hi, and came vnto him, & kepte him, yt he shulde not departe fro the. 43 But he sayde vnto the: I must preach the Gospell of ye kyngdome of God to other cities also: for there to am I sent. 44 And he preached in the synagoges of Galile.

James 3:1-18

1 My brethre, be not euery man a master, remebrynge how that we shall receaue the more damnacion: 2 for in many thinges we synne all. Yf a man synne not in worde, the same is a parfecte man, & able to tame all the body. 3 Beholde, we put bittes into the horses mouthes yt they shulde obeye vs, and we turne aboute all the body. 4 Beholde also ye shyppes, which though they be so gret, and are dryuen of fearce windes, yet are they turned about with a very smale helme, whither soeuer the violence of the gouerner wyll. 5 Euen so the toge is a lyttell member, and bosteth great thinges. Beholde how gret a thinge a lyttell fyre kyndleth, 6 and the tonge is fyre, and a worlde of wyckednes. So is the tonge set amonge oure membres, that it defileth the whole body, and setteth a fyre all that we haue of nature, and is it selfe set a fyre euen of hell. 7 All the natures of beastes, and of byrdes, and of serpentes, and thinges of the see, are meked and tamed of the nature of ma. 8 But the toge can no man tame. Yt is an vnruely euell full of deedly poysou. 9 Therwith blesse we God the father, and therwith cursse we men which are made after the similitude of God. 10 Out of one mouth proceadeth blessynge and cursynge. My brethre these thinges ought not so to be. 11 Doth a fountayne sende forth at one place swete water and bytter also? 12 Can the fygge tree, my Brethren, beare oliue beries: ether a vyne beare fygges? 13 So can no fountayne geue bothe salt water and fresshe also. If eny man be wyse and endued with learnynge amonge you, let him shewe the workes of his good couersacion in meknes that is coupled with wissdome. 14 But yf ye haue bitter enuyenge and stryfe in yor hertes, reioyce not: nether be lyars agaynst the trueth. 15 This wissdome descendeth not from aboue: but is erthy, and naturall, and dyuelishe. 16 For where enuyenge and stryfe is, there is vnstablenes and all maner of euell workes. 17 But the wissdom that is fro aboue, is fyrst pure, the peasable, gentle, and easy to be entreated, full of mercy and good frutes, without iudgynge, and without simulacion: 18 yee, and the frute of rightewesnes is sowen in peace, of the that mayntene peace.
