Joshua 22:5

5 But take diligent hede now, that ye do acordinge to the commaundement and lawe which Moses the seruaunt of the LORDE hath commaunded: That ye loue the LORDE youre God, and walke in all his wayes, and kepe his commaundementes, and cleue vnto him, and serue him with all youre hert and with all youre soule.

Isaiah 1:1-31

1 This is the prophecy of Esay the sonne of Amos, which he shewed vpon Iuda and Ieruasalem: In the tyme of Osias, Ioathan, Ahas, and Ezechias kynges of Iuda. 2 Heare o heauen, herken o earth, for the LORDE speaketh: I haue norished & brought vp children, and they are fallen awaye fro me. 3 An oxe knoweth his LORDE, and an Asse his masters stall, but Israel knoweth nothinge, my people hath no vnderstondinge. 4 Alas for this synful people, which are experte in blasphemies, a frawerde generacion, vnnatural children. They haue forsaken the LORDE, they haue prouoked the holy one of Israel vnto anger, and are gone bacward. 5 Wherfore shulde ye be plaged eny more? For ye are euer fallinge awaye. The whole heade is sick, and the herte is very heuy. 6 From the sole of the foote vnto the heade, there is no whole parte in all yor body: but all are woundes, botches, sores and strypes, which can nether be helped, bounde vp, molified, ner eased with eny oyntment. 7 Youre londe lieth waist, youre cities are brent vp, youre enemies deuoure youre londe, and ye must be fayne to stonde, and loke vpon it: and it is desolate, as it were with enemies in a batell. 8 Morouer ye doughter of Syon is left alone like a cotage in a vynyearde, like a watchouse in tyme of warre, like a beseged citie. 9 And excepte the LORDE of hostes had left us a few alyue: we shulde haue bene as Sodoma, & like vnto Gomorra. 10 Heare the worde of the LORDE ye tyrauntes of Sodoma: and herken vnto the lawe of oure God, thou people of Gomorra. 11 Why offre ye so many sacrifices vnto me? I am discontent for the brentoffringes of wethers, and with ye fatnesse offedbeastes. I haue no pleasure in the bloude of bullockes, lambes and gootes. 12 When ye apeare before me, who requyreth you to treade within my porches? 13 Offre me no mo oblacions, for it is but lost laboure. I abhorre youre incense. I maye not awaye with youre newmoones, youre Sabbathes and solempne dayes. Youre fastinges are also in vayne. 14 I hate youre new holy dayes and fastinges, euen fro my very harte. They make me weery, I can not abyde them. 15 Though ye holde out yor hondes, yet turne I myne eyes from you. And though ye make many prayers, yet heare I nothinge at all, for youre hondes are full of bloude. 16 Wash you, make you clene, put awaye yor euell thoughtes out of my sight, cease from doinge of euell and violence. 17 Lerne to do right, applie youre selues to equyte, delyuer the oppressed, helpe the fatherlesse to his right, let the wydowes complaynte come before you. 18 Now go to (saieth the LORDE) we wil talke together. Is it not so? Though youre synnes be as read as scarlet, shal they not be whyter then snowe? And though they were like purple, shall they not be like whyte woll? 19 Is it not so? Yf ye be louynge & obedient, ye shal enioye the best thinge that groweth in the londe. 20 But yf ye be obstinate and rebellious, ye shalbe deuoured with the swerde: for thus the LORDE hath promised with his owne mouth. 21 How happeneth it then that the rightuous citie (which was full of equite) is become vnfaithfull as an whore? rightuousnes dwelt in it, but now murthur. 22 Thy Siluer is turned to drosse, and thy wyne myxte wt water. 23 Thy prynces are traytours and companyons of theues. They loue giftes altogether, and folowe rewardes. As for the fatherles, they helpe him not to his right, nether wil they let the wydowes causes come before them. 24 Therfore speaketh the LORDE God of hostes the mighty one of Israel: Ah I must ease me of myne enemies, and a venge me vpo the. 25 And therfore shal I laye my honde vpon the, and burne out thy drosse from the fynest and purest, and put out all thy leade, 26 & set thy iudges agayne as they were somtyme, and thy Senatours as they were from ye begynnynge. Then shalt thou be called the rightuous citie, the faithful citie. 27 But Sion shalbe redemed with equyte, and hyr captiuyte with rightuousnesse 28 For the transgressours and vngodly, and soch as are become vnfaithfull vnto the LORDE, must all together be vtterly destroyed. 29 And excepte ye be ashamed of the oketrees wherin ye haue so delited, and of the gardes that ye haue chosen: 30 ye shalbe as an oke whose leaues are fallen awaye, and as a garden that hath no moystnesse. 31 And as for the glory of these thinges, it shalbe turned to drie strawe, and he that made them to a sparke. And they shal both burne together, so that no man shalbe able to quench them.

Matthew 10:16

16 Beholde, I sende you forth as shepe amoge wolues. Be ye therfore wyse as serpentes, and innocent as doues.

Malachi 3:1-18

1 Beholde, I wil sende my messaunger, which shal prepare the waye before me: and the LORDE whom ye wolde haue, shal soone come to his temple, yee euen the messaunger of the couenaunt whom ye longe for. Beholde, he commeth, sayeth the LORDE of hoostes. 2 But who maye abyde the daye of his commynge? Who shalbe able to endure, when he appeareth? For he is like a goldsmythes fyre, ad like wasshers sope. 3 He shall syt him downe to trye and to clense ye syluer, he shal pourge the children of Leui, and purifie them like as golde and syluer: that they maye brynge meatofferinges vnto the LORDE in rightuousnes. 4 Then shall the offeringe of Iuda and Ierusalem be acceptable vnto the LORDE, like as from the begynninge & in the yeares afore tyme. 5 I will come & punysh you, & I myself wil be a swift wytnes agaynst the witches, agaynst the aduouterers, agaynst false swearers: yee ad agaynst those, that wrogeously kepe backe the hyrelynges dewty: which vexe the wyddowes & the fatherlesse, & oppresse the straunger, and feare not me, sayeth the LORDE of hoostes. 6 For I am the LORDE yt chaunge not, & ye (o children of Iacob) wil not leaue of: 7 ye are gone awaye fro myne ordinauces, & sens ye tyme of youre forefathers haue ye not kepte them. Turne you now vnto me, and I wil turne me vnto you, sayeth the LORDE of hoostes. Ye saye: Wherin shal we turne? 8 Shulde a man vse falsede and disceate with God, as ye vse falsede and disceate with me? Yet ye saye: wherin vse we disceate with the? In Tythes and heaue offerynges. 9 Therfore are ye cursed with penury, because ye dyssemble with me, all the sorte of you. 10 Brynge euery Tythe in to my barne, yt there maye be meat in myne house: and proue me withall (sayeth the LORDE of hoostes) yf I wil not open the wyndowes of heauen vnto you, and poure you out a blessinge with plenteousnesse. 11 Yee I shal reproue the consumer for youre sakes, so that he shall not eate vp the frute of youre grounde, nether shal ye vynyarde be baren in the felde, sayeth ye LORDE of hoostes: 12 In so moch that all people shal saye, that ye be blessed, for ye shall be a pleasaunt lode, sayeth the LORDE off hoostes. 13 Ye speake hard wordes agaynst me, sayeth the LORDE. And yet ye saye: What haue we spoken agaynst the? 14 Ye haue sayed: It is but lost laboure, to serue God: What profit haue we for kepynge his commaundementes, and for walkinge humbly before the LORDE off hoostes? 15 Therfore maye we saye, that the proude are happie, and that they which deale with vngodlynesse, are set vp: for they tempte God, and yet escape. 16 But they that feare God, saye thus one to another: The LORDE cosidreth and heareth it. Yee it is before him a memoriall boke written for soch as feare the LORDE, and remembre his name. 17 And in the daye that I wil make (saieth ye LORDE of hoostes) they shalbe myne owne possession: and I will fauoure them, like as a man fauoureth his owne sonne, that doth him seruyce. 18 Turne you therfore, and considre what difference is betwixte the rightuous and vngodly: betwixte him that serueth God, ad him that serueth him not.

Matthew 8:1-4

1 When he was come downe from the mountayne, moch people folowed him. 2 And lo, there came a leper, and worsheped him, sayinge: LORDE, yf thou wylt, thou canst make me cleane. 3 And Iesus put forth hys honde, & touched him, sayinge: I wyl, be thou cleane: & immediatly his leprosie was clensed? 4 And Iesus sayde vnto hym: Se thou tell no ma, but go and shew thy selfe to the preste, and offer the gyfte that Moses comaunded, in witnes to them.

Luke 9:57-10:16

57 And it fortuned as they went by the waye, one sayde vnto him: I wil folowe the, whyther so euer thou go. 58 And Iesus sayde vnto him: The foxes haue holes, and the byrdes vnder the heaue haue nestes: but the sonne of man hath not wheron to laye his heade. 59 And he sayde vnto another: Folowe me. He sayde: Syr, geue me leue first to go, and burye my father. 60 But Iesus sayde vnto him: Let the deed burye their deed. But go thou thy waye, and preach the kyngdome of God. 61 And another sayde: Syr, I will folowe the, but geue me leue first, to go byd them farwele, which are at home in my house. 62 Iesus sayde vnto him: Who so putteth his hade to the plowe, and loketh backe, is not mete for the kingdome of God.

Luke 10:1-16

1 Afterwarde the LORDE appoynted out other seuentie, and sent them two and two before him in to euery cite and place, whither he himself wolde come, 2 and sayde vnto them: The haruest is greate, but the labourers are fewe. Praye therfore the LORDE of the haruest, to sende forth labourers in to his haruest. 3 Go youre waye: beholde, I sende you forth as the labes amonge ye wolues. 4 Beare nether wallet, ner scryppe, ner shues, and salute no ma by the waye. 5 In to what so euer house ye entre, first saye: Peace be in this house. 6 And yf the childe of peace be there, youre peace shal rest vpon him. Yf no, then shal youre peace turne to you agayne. 7 But tary ye still in the same house, eatinge aud drynkinge soch as they haue. For the labourer is worthy of his rewarde.Go not from house to house. 8 And in to what so euer cite ye entre, and they receaue you, eate soch thinges as are set before you. 9 And heale the sicke that are there, and saye vnto them: The kyngdome of God is come nye vnto you. 10 But in to what so euer cite ye come, and they receaue you not, go youre waye out in to the stretes of the same, and saye: 11 Euen the very dust which cleaueth vpon vs of youre cite, wype we of vpon you. But of this ye shal be sure, that the kyngdome of God was come nye vnto you. 12 I saye vnto you: It shalbe easyer for Sodome in that daye, then for that cite. 13 Wo vnto the Chorazin, wo vnto the Bethsaida: for yf the miracles which haue bene done amonge you had bene done at Tyre and Sidon, they had done pennaunce longe agoo, syttinge in sack cloth and in asshes. 14 Neuertheles it shalbe easyer for Tyre and Sidon at the iudgment, then for you. 15 And thou Capernaum which art exalted vnto the heauen, shalt be thrust downe vnto hell. 16 He that heareth you, heareth me: and he that despyseth you, despyseth me: but who so despyseth me, despyseth him yt sent me.

Philippians 2:1-13

1 Yf there be amonge you eny consolacion in Christ, yf there be eny comforte of loue, yf there be eny fellishippe off the sprete, yf there be eny compassion and mercy, 2 fulfyll my ioye, that ye drawe one waye, hauynge one loue, beynge of one accorde, and of one mynde: 3 that there be nothinge done thorow stryfe and vayne glory, but that thorow mekenesse of mynde euery man esteme another better then himselfe: 4 and let euery ma loke not for his awne profet, but for the profet of other. 5 Let the same mynde be in you, that was in Christ Iesu: 6 which beyinge in the shappe of God, thought it not robbery to be equall with God, 7 but made him selfe of no reputacion, and toke vpon him the shappe of a seruaunt, became like another man, 8 and was founde in his apparell as a man: he humbled himselfe, and became obedient vnto the death, euen vnto the death of the crosse. 9 Therfore hath God also exalted him, and geuen him a name, which is aboue all names, 10 that in the name of Iesus euery kne shulde bowe, both of thinges in heauen of thinges vpo earth, and of thinges vnder the earth, 11 and that all tunges shulde confesse, that Iesus Christ is the LORDE vnto the prayse of God the father. 12 Wherfore my dearly beloued, as ye haue allwayes obeyed (not onely in my presence, but now also moch more in my absence) euen so worke out youre awne saluacion with feare and tremblynge. 13 For it is God which worketh in you both the wyll and the deed, euen of his owne good wyll.

Ephesians 6:7-8

7 with good wyll. Thynke that ye serue the LORDE and not me: 8 and be sure, that what good soeuer a man doth, he shal reaceaue it agayne of the LORDE, whether he be bonde or fre.

James 1:1-27

1 Iames the seruaunt of God and of the LORDE Iesus Christ, sendeth gretinge to the xij. trybes which are scatered here & there. 2 My brethren, counte it exceadynge ioye whe ye fall in to diuers temptacions, 3 for as moche as ye knowe, how yt the tryinge of youre faith bringeth pacience: 4 and let pacience haue her parfect worke, yt ye maye be parfecte aud sounde, lakinge nothinge. 5 Yf eny of you lacke wyssdome, let him axe of God, which geueth to all men indifferentlie, and casteth no man in the teth: and it shal be geue him. 6 But let him axe in faith and wauer not. For he that douteth, is lyke the wawes of ye See, tost of the wynde, and caried wt violence. 7 Nether let yt man thinke that he shal receaue eny thige of ye LORDE. 8 A wauerynge mynded ma ys vnstable in all his waies. 9 Let the brother of lowe degre reioyce, in yt he is exalted: 10 and the rich, in yt he is made lowe. For eue as the flor of ye grasse shal he vanyshe awaye. 11 The Sonne ryseth wt heat and the grasse wydereth, & his floure falleth awaye, and the beautie of the fassion of it perissheth: euen so shal the ryche man perisshe with his abundaunce. 12 Happy is the man that endureth in teptacion, for when he is tryed, he shal receaue the crowne of life, which the LORDE hath promised to them that loue him. 13 Let no man saye when he is tempted, yt he is tempted of God. For God tepteth not vnto euell, nether tepteth he eny man. 14 But euery ma is tepted, drawne awaye, & entysed of his awne cocupiscece. 15 The whe lust hath conceaued, she bringeth forth synne, & synne when it is fynished, bringeth forth deeth. 16 Erre not my deare brethre. 17 Euery good gifte, & euery parfait gift, is from aboue, and cometh downe from ye father of light, with whom is no variablenes, nether is he chaunged vnto darcknes. 18 Of his awne will begat he vs with the worde of life, that we shulde be the fyrst frutes of his creatures. 19 Wherfore deare brethren, let euery man be swifte to heare, slowe to speake, and slowe to wrath. 20 For the wrath of ma worketh not that which is righteous before God. 21 Wherfore laye aparte all fylthines, all superfluite of maliciousnes, & receaue with meknes ye worde yt is grafted in you, which is able to saue youre soules. 22 And se that ye be doers of ye worde & not heares only, deceauinge youre awne selues. 23 For yf eny heare the worde, and do it not, he is like vnto a ma that beholdeth his bodily face in a glasse. 24 For assone as he hath loked on himselfe, he goeth his waye, and forgetteth immediatly what his fasshion was. 25 But who so loketh in ye perfect lawe of libertie, and continueth therin (yf he be not a forgetfull hearer, but a doar of the worke) the same shalbe happie in his dede. 26 Yf eny man amonge you seme deuoute, & refrayne not his toge: but deceaue his awne herte, this mannes deuocion is in vayne. 27 Pure deuocion and vndefiled before God the father, is this: to visit the frendlesse and widdowes in their aduersite, and to kepe him selfe vnspotted of the worlde.

1 Peter 1:10-16

10 Of which saluacion the prophetes haue enquyred and searched, which prophecied off the grace that shulde come vpon you: 11 searchinge whan or at what tyme the sprete off Christ that was in them, shulde signifye, which (sprete) testified before the passions that shulde come vnto Christ, and the glory that shulde folowe after. 12 Vnto the which (prophetes) it was declared, that not vnto them selues, but vnto vs they shulde mynister the thinges which are now shewed vnto you, by them which thorow ye holy goost sent downe from heauen, haue preached vnto you the thinges which the angels delyte to beholde. 13 Wherfore gyrde op the loynes off youre mynde, be sober, and trust perfectly on the grace that is brought vnto you, by the declarynge of Iesus Christ, 14 as obedient childre, not fasshionynge youre selues to yor olde lustes of ignoraunce: 15 but as he which hath called you is holy, eue so be ye holy also in all youre conuersacion: 16 for it it wrytte: Be ye holy, for I am holy.

Proverbs 14:21

21 Who so despyseth his neghbor, doth amysse: but blessed is he that hath pyte of the poore.

Matthew 8:5-13

5 When Iesus was entred into Capernaum, there came vnto him a Captayne, & besought hym, 6 sayinge: Syr, my seruaunt lyeth sicke at home of the palsye, and ys greuously payned. 7 Iesus sayd vnto hym: I wil come & heale him. 8 The Captayne answered and sayde: Syr, I am nor worthy, that thou shuldest come vnder my rofe, but speake the worde only, and my seruaunt shalbe healed. 9 For I myselfe also am a ma subiect to ye auctorite of another, & haue sowdiers vnder me. Yet wha I saye to one: go, he goeth, and to another: come, he commeth: & to my seruaunt: do this, he doeth it. 10 When Iesus hearde that, he marueled, and sayde to them that folowed hym: Verely I say vnto you: I haue not founde so greate fayth: no not i Israel. 11 But I say vnto you: Many shall come from the east and west, and shall rest with Abraham, Isaac and Iacob in the kyngdome of heauen: 12 and the chyldren of the kyngdome shalbe cast out in to vtter darcknes: there shalbe wepinge & gnasshing of teth. 13 And Iesus sayd vnto ye Captayne: go thy waye, and as thou beleuest, so be it vnto the. And his seruaunt was healed the same houre.

John 7:1-24

1 After that wente Iesus aboute in Galile, for he wolde not go aboute in Iewry, because the Iewes sought to kyll him. 2 But the Iewes feast of Tabernacles was at hande. 3 Then sayde his brethren vnto him: Get the hece, and go into Iewry, that thy disciples also maye se thy workes, that thou doest. 4 He that seketh to be openly knowne, doth nothinge in secrete. Yf thou do soch thinges, the shewe yi self before the worlde: 5 For his awne brethren also beleued not in him. 6 Then sayde Iesus vnto them: My tyme is not yet come, but youre tyme is allwaye ready. 7 The worlde can not hate you, but me it hateth: because I testifye of it, that the workes of it are euell. 8 Go ye vp vnto this feast, I wyll not go vp yet vnto this feast, for my tyme is not yet fulfylled. 9 Whan he sayde this vnto them, he abode styll in Galile. 10 But as soone as his brethren were gone vp, then wente he vp also vnto the feast, not openly, but as it were secretly. 11 Then sought him ye Iewes at ye feast, and sayde: Where is he? 12 And there was a greate murmur of him amonge the people. Some sayde: He is good. But other sayde: No, he doth but disceaue the people. 13 Howbeit no man spake frely of him, for feare of the Iewes. 14 But in the myddes of the feast wete Iesus vp in to the temple, and taught. 15 And the Iewes marueyled and sayde: How can he ye scrypture, seynge he hath not lerned it? 16 Iesus answered them, and sayde: My doctryne is not myne, but his that hath sent me. 17 Yf eny man wyl do his will, he shal knowe, whether this doctryne be of God, or whether I speake of my self. 18 He that speaketh of himself, seketh his awne prayse: but he that seketh the prayse of him that sent him, the same is true, & there is no vnrighteousnes in him. 19 Hath not Moses geuen you the lawe? and none of you kepeth the lawe? Why go ye aboute to kyll me? 20 The people answered, and sayde: Thou hast the deuell, who goeth aboute to kyll the? 21 Iesus answered and sayde: One worke haue I done, and ye all maruayle. 22 Moses gaue you the circumcision, (not because it commeth of Moses, but of ye fathers:) Yet do ye circumcyse a man vpon the Sabbath. 23 Yf a man receaue circucision vpon the Sabbath, that the lawe of Moses shulde not be broken, dissdayne ye then at me, because I haue made a ma euery whyt whole on the Sabbath? 24 Iudge not after the vtter appearauce, but iudge righteous iudgment.

Romans 12:1

1 I beseke you brethre by the mercyfulnesse of God, that ye geue ouer youre bodies for a sacrifice, yt is quycke holy, and acceptable vnto God, which is yor reasonable seruynge off God.

Philippians 2:2

2 fulfyll my ioye, that ye drawe one waye, hauynge one loue, beynge of one accorde, and of one mynde:

2 Thessalonians 3:8

8 nether toke we bred of eny man for naughte but wrought wt laboure and trauayle night and daye, lest we shulde be chargeable to eny of you.

Ephesians 4:11-14

11 And ye same hath set some to be Apostles, some to be prophetes, some to be Euangelistes, some to be shepherdes & teachers, 12 wherby the sayntes mighte be coupled together thorow comen seruyce to the edifienge of ye body of Christ, 13 tyll we all come vnto one maner of faith and knowlege of the sonne of God, and become a perfecte man in to the measure of the perfecte age of Christ 14 that we be nomore children, waueringe & caried aboute with euery wynde of doctryne thorow the wickednes of men and craftynes, wherby they laye awayte for vs to disceaue vs.

Hebrews 6:10-12

10 For God is not vnrighteous, that he shulde forget youre worke and laboure of loue, which ye shewed in his name, whan ye mynistred vnto the sayntes, and yet mynister. 11 Yee and we desyre, that euery one of you shewe the same diligence, to the stablyshinge of hope euen vnto the ende, 12 that ye faynte not, but folowe them which thorow faith and paciece inheret the promyses.

1 Peter 4:1-19

1 For as moch then as Christ hath suffred for vs in ye flesh, arme youre selues likewyse with the same mynde. For he which suffreth in the flesh, ceasseth fro synne, 2 yt hece forth (as moch tyme as yet remayneth in ye flesh) he shulde not lyue after the lustes of me, but after the wil of God. 3 For it is ynough, yt we haue spent ye tyme past of the life, after the will of ye Heythen, wha we walked in wantannesse, lustes, dronkenes, glotony, ryotous drynkynge, & i abhominable Idolatrye. 4 And it semeth to the a straunge thinge, yt ye runne not also wt them vnto the same excesse of ryote, & speake euell of you. 5 (Which shal geue acoptes vnto hi yt is ready to iudge ye quycke & ye deed.) 6 For vnto this purpose also was ye Gospell preached vnto the deed, yt they shulde be iudged like other me i ye flesh, but shulde lyue vnto God in ye sprete. 7 The ende of all thiges is at hade.Be ye therfore sober & watch vnto prayers: 8 but aboue all thinges haue feruent loue amonge you one to another. For loue couereth the multitude of synnes. 9 Be ye herberous one to another without grudginge, 10 & mynister one to another, eueryone with the gifte yt he hath receaued, as good stewardes of the manifolde grace of God. 11 Yf eny ma speake, let hi speake it as ye wordes of God. Yf eny man haue an office, let him execute it as out of the power yt God mynistreth vnto hi, yt God maye be praysed in all thinges thorow Iesus Christ, To who be honor and domynion for euer and euer Amen. 12 Derely beloued, maruell not at this heate (which is come amoge you to trye you) as though some strauge thinge happened vnto you: 13 but reioyce, in as moch as ye are partakers of Christes passios, yt wha his glory appeareth, ye maye be mery & glad. 14 Yf ye be reuyled for ye name of Christ, blessed are ye, for ye sprete (which is ye sprete of glory & of God) resteth vpon you. On their parte he is euell spoken of, but on yor parte he is praysed. 15 But se that none of you suffre as a murthurer, or as a thefe, or as an euell doer, or as a busy body in other mens matters. 16 Yf eny man suffre as a Christen man, let him not be ashamed, but let him prayse God on this behalfe. 17 For ye tyme is come, that iudgmet must begynne at the house of God. Yf it first begynne at vs, what shal the ende be of the which beleue not the Gospell of God? 18 And yf ye righteous scacely be saued, where shal ye vngodly & synner appeare? 19 Wherfore let them that suffer acordynge to the will off God, commytte their soules vnto him with well doynge, as to the faithfull creator.

1 John 3:17-18

17 But he yt hath this worldes good, & seyth his brother haue nede, and shutteth vp his hert fro him, how dwelleth the loue of God in him? 18 My litle children, let vs not loue with worde nether with tonge, but with ye dede, and with the trueth.

Mark 10:42-45

42 But Iesus called them, and sayde vnto them: Ye knowe that the prynces of ye worlde haue domynacion of the people, and ye mightie exercise auctorite amonge them. 43 So shal it not be amonge you: but who so euer wil be greate amoge you, shal be youre mynister: 44 and who so wyl be chefest amonge you, shalbe seruaunt of all. 45 For the sonne of man also came not to be serued, but to do seruyce, and to geue his life to a redempcion for many.

Galatians 5:13-15

13 But brethre, ye are called vnto liberty, onely let not youre libertie be an occasion vnto the flesh, but by loue serue one another. 14 For all the lawe is fulfylled in one worde, namely in this: loue thy neghboure as thy selfe. 15 But yf ye byte and deuoure one another, take hede, that ye be not consumed one of another.

Hebrews 13:16

1 Before the feast of Easter whan Iesus knewe that his tyme was come, that he shulde departe out of this worlde vnto ye father, as he loued his which were in the worlde, euen so loued he them vnto the ende. 2 And after supper, whan the deuell had allready put into ye hert of Iudas Iscarioth Symons sonne, to betraye him, 3 Iesus knowinge that the father had geuen all thinges in to his handes, & that he was come from God, and wente vnto God, 4 he rose from supper, and layed asyde his vpper garmentes, and toke a towell, and gyrde it aboute him. 5 Afterwarde poured he water into a basen, and beganne to wash the disciples fete, and dryed them with the towell, yt he was gyrded withall. 6 Then came he vnto Symon Peter, and ye same sayde vnto him: LORDE, shalt thou washe my fete? 7 Iesus answered and sayde vnto him: What I do, thou knowest not now, but thou shalt knowe it herafter. 8 The sayde Peter vnto him: Thou shalt neuer wash my fete. Iesus answered him: Yf I wash ye not, thou shalt haue no parte with me. 9 Symon Peter sayde vnto him: LORDE, not the fete onely, but the handes also and the heade. 10 Iesus sayde vnto him: He that is wasshe, nedeth not, saue to washe ye fete, but is cleane euery whytt. And ye are cleane but not all. 11 For he knewe his betrayer, therfore sayde he: ye are not all cleane. 12 Now whan he had wasshen their fete, and taken his clothes, he sat him downe agayne, and sayde vnto the: Wote ye what I haue done vnto you? 13 Ye call me master and LORDE, and ye saye right therin, for so I am.

Is not he that sytteth at the table? But I am amoge you as a mynister.

Philippians 2:1-4:23

1 Yf there be amonge you eny consolacion in Christ, yf there be eny comforte of loue, yf there be eny fellishippe off the sprete, yf there be eny compassion and mercy, 2 fulfyll my ioye, that ye drawe one waye, hauynge one loue, beynge of one accorde, and of one mynde: 3 that there be nothinge done thorow stryfe and vayne glory, but that thorow mekenesse of mynde euery man esteme another better then himselfe: 4 and let euery ma loke not for his awne profet, but for the profet of other. 5 Let the same mynde be in you, that was in Christ Iesu: 6 which beyinge in the shappe of God, thought it not robbery to be equall with God, 7 but made him selfe of no reputacion, and toke vpon him the shappe of a seruaunt, became like another man, 8 and was founde in his apparell as a man: he humbled himselfe, and became obedient vnto the death, euen vnto the death of the crosse. 9 Therfore hath God also exalted him, and geuen him a name, which is aboue all names, 10 that in the name of Iesus euery kne shulde bowe, both of thinges in heauen of thinges vpo earth, and of thinges vnder the earth, 11 and that all tunges shulde confesse, that Iesus Christ is the LORDE vnto the prayse of God the father. 12 Wherfore my dearly beloued, as ye haue allwayes obeyed (not onely in my presence, but now also moch more in my absence) euen so worke out youre awne saluacion with feare and tremblynge. 13 For it is God which worketh in you both the wyll and the deed, euen of his owne good wyll. 14 Do all thinges without murmurynges and disputinges, 15 that ye maye be fautles and pure, and the childre of God without rebuke, in the myddes of ye croked and peruerse nacion, amonge whom se that ye shyne as lightes in the worlde, 16 holdinge fast the worde of life, vnto my reioysinge in the daye of Christ, that I haue not runne in vayne, nether laboured in vayne. 17 Yee and though I be offred vp vpo the offerynge & sacrifice of youre faith, I am glad, and reioyce with you all: 18 be ye glad also, and reioyce ye with me. 19 I trust in the LORDE Iesus, to sende Timotheus shortly vnto you, that I also maye be of good comforte, whan I knowe what case ye stonde in. 20 For I haue no man that is so like mynded to me, which with so pure affeccio careth for you: 21 for all other seke their awne, not that which is Iesus Christes. 22 But ye knowe the profe of him: for as a childe vnto the father, so hath he mynistred vnto me in the Gospell. 23 Him I hope to sende, as soone as I knowe how it wyll go with me. 24 But I trust in the LORDE, that I also my selfe shal come shortly. 25 Neuertheles I thoughte it necessary to sende vnto you the brother Ephraditus, which is my companyon in laboure and felowe soudyer, and youre Apostell, and my mynister at my nede, 26 for so moch as he longed after you all, and was full of heuynes, because ye had herde that he was sicke. 27 And no doute he was sicke, and that nye vnto death: but God had mercy on him, and not on him onely, but on me also, lest I shulde haue had sorowe vpon sorowe. 28 I haue sent him therfore the more haistely, that ye mighte se him, and reioyce agayne, and that I also mighte haue the lesse sorowe. 29 Receaue him therfore in the LORDE with all gladnes, and make moch of soche: 30 for because of the worke of Christ, he wente so farre, that he came nye vnto death, and regarded not his life, to fulfyll that seruyce which was lackynge on youre parte towarde me.

Philippians 3:1-4:23

1 Morover my brethren, reioyce in the LORDE. Where as I wryte euer one thinge vnto you, it greueth me not, and maketh you the surer. 2 Bewarre off dogges, bewarre of euell workers, bewarre off discension: 3 for we are the circumcision, euen we that serue God in the sprete, and reioyce in Christ Iesu, and haue no confidence in the flesh, 4 though I haue wherof I mighte reioyce in ye flesh. Yf eny other ma thynke that he hath wherof he mighte reioyce in the flesh, moch more I, 5 which was circucysed on the eight daye, one of the people of Israel, of the trybe off Ben Iamin, an hebrue of the Hebrues: as concernynge the lawe a Pharise: 6 as concernynge feruentnes I persecuted the cogregacion: and as touchinge the righteousnes which is in the lawe, I was vnrebukable. 7 But the thinges that were vauntage vnto me, haue I counted losse for Christes sake. 8 Yee I thynke all thinges but losse, for that excellent knowleges sake of Christ Iesu my LORDE: for whom I haue counted all thinge losse, and do iudge them but donge, that I mighte wynne Christ, 9 & be founde in him, not hauynge myne awne righteousnes which commeth of the lawe, but by the faith of Christ (namely) the righteousnes which commeth of God in faith, 10 to knowe him and the vertue of his resurreccion, and the fellishippe of his passion, that I maye be conformable vnto his death, 11 yff by eny meanes I mighte attayne to the resurreccion from the deed. 12 Not that I haue attayned vnto it all ready, or that I am allready perfecte: but I folowe, yf I maye comprehende that, wherin I am comprehended off Christ Iesu. 13 Brethren, I counte not my selfe yet that I haue gotten it: but one thinge I saye: I forget that which is behynde, and stretch my selfe vnto that which is before, 14 & preace vnto ye marck apoynted, to optayne the rewarde of the hye callynge of God in Christ Iesu. 15 Let vs therfore (as many as be parfecte) be thus wyse mynded: and yf ye be otherwyse mynded, I praye God open euen this vnto you. 16 Neuertheles in that wher vnto we are come, let vs procede by one rule, that we maye be of one accorde. 17 Brethren, be ye ye folowers of me, and loke on the which walke eue so as ye haue vs for an ensample. 18 For many walke (off whom I haue tolde you often, but now I tell you wepynge) eue enemies of the crosse of Christ, 19 whose ende is damnacion, whose God is the bely, & whose glory shalbe to their shame, which are earthly mynded. 20 But oure conuersacion is in heauen, from whence we loke for the Sauioure Iesu Christ ye LORDE, 21 which shal chauge or vyle body, yt it maye be like fashioned vnto his glorious body, acordinge to ye workynge wherby he is able to subdue all thinges vnto himselfe.

Philippians 4:1-23

1 Wherfore my brethre dearly beloued & longed for, my ioye & my crowne contynue so in the LORDE ye beloued. 2 I praye Euodias, & beseke Syntiches, that they be of one mynde in the LORDE. 3 Yee and I beseke the my faithfull yock felowe, helpe the wemen, which haue laboured with me in the Gospell, with Clement & with my other helpers, whose names are in the boke of life. 4 Reioyce in the LORDE allwaye, & agayne I saye, Reioyse. 5 Let youre softnes be knowne vnto all men. The LORDE is euen at honde. 6 Be not carefull, but in all thinges let yor peticions in prayer and supplicacion, with geuynge of thankes be knowne before God. 7 And ye peace of God, which passeth all vnderstodinge, kepe youre hertes and myndes in Christ Iesu. 8 Furthermore brethren, whatsoeuer thinges are true, whatsoeuer thinges are honest, what soeuer thinges are iust, what so euer thinges are pure, what soeuer thinges pertayne to loue, whatsoeuer thinges are of honest reporte: yf there be eny vertuous thinge, yf there be eny laudable thinge, 9 haue those same in yor mynde, which ye haue both lerned and receaued, and herde and sene in me: those thinges do, and the God of peace shalbe with you. 10 I reioyse greatly in ye LORDE, that now at the last ye are reuyued agayne to care for me, as ye cared for me afore, but ye lacked oportunyte. 11 I speake not this because of necessite: for I haue lerned in what soeuer estate I am, therwith to be contete 12 I can be lowe, and I ca be hye. Euery where and in all thinges I am mete, both to be full, and to be hongrie: to haue plentye, and to suffre nede. 13 I can do all thinges thorow Christ, which stregtheth me. 14 Notwith stondinge ye haue done well, that ye bare parte with me in my tribulacion. 15 But ye of Philippos knowe, that in the begynngnge of the Gospell whan I departed fro Macedonia, no congregacion bare parte with me concernynge geuynge and receauynge, but ye onely. 16 For vnto Tessalonica ye sent once and afterwarde agayne vnto my necessite. 17 Not that I seke giftes, but I seke the frute, that it be abudaunt in yor rekenynge. 18 For I haue all, and haue plentye. I was euen fylled wha I receaued of Epaphroditus, that which came from you, an odoure of swetenes, a sacrifice accepted & pleasaunt vnto God. 19 My God fulfyll all yor nede, acordinge to his riches in glory i Christ Iesu. 20 Vnto God and oure father be prayse for euer and euer Amen. 21 Salute all ye sayntes in Christ Iesu. The brethre that are with me, salute you. 22 All the sayntes salute you, but specially they that are of the Emperours house. 23 The grace of oure LORDE Iesu Christ be with you all, Amen.

Romans 12:9-13

9 Let loue be without dissimulacion. Hate that which is euell: Cleue vnto that which is good. 10 Be kynde one to another with brotherly loue. In geuynge honoure go one before another. 11 Be not slouthfull in the busynesse that ye haue in hande. Be feruent in the sprete. Applye youre selues vnto the tyme. 12 Reioyse in hope, be pacient in trouble. Continue in prayer. 13 Distribute vnto the necessities of the sayntes. Be glad to harbarow.

Luke 6:27-45

27 But I saye vnto you that heare: Loue youre enemies: do good vnto them that hate you: 28 blesse them that curse you: praye for them that wrongfully trouble you. 29 And who so smyteth the on the one cheke, offre him ye other also. And who so taketh awaye thy cloake, forbyd him not yi cote also. 30 Who so euer axeth of the, geue him: and who so taketh awaye thyne, axe it not agayne. 31 And as ye wolde that men shulde do vnto you, euen so do ye vnto them likewyse. 32 And yf ye loue them that loue you, what thake haue ye therfore? For synners also loue their louers. 33 And yf ye do good for youre good doers, what thanke haue ye therfore? For synners also do euen the same. 34 And yf ye lende vnto them, of who ye hope to receaue what thake haue ye ther fore? For synners also lende vnto synners, that they maye receaue as moch agayne. 35 But rather loue ye yor enemies, do good, and lende, lokynge for nothinge therof agayne: so shal yor rewarde be greate, and ye shalbe the children of the Hyest, for he is kynde, euen to the vnthankfull and to the euell. 36 Be ye therfore mercifull, as youre father also is mercifull. 37 Iudge not, and ye shal not be iudged. Condepne not, and ye shal not be condempned. Forgeue, and ye shal be forgeuen. 38 Geue, and to you shalbe geue. A good measure, pressed downe, shaken together, & runynge ouer, shal me geue into youre bosome. For with what measure ye meete, with the same shal it be measured to you agayne. 39 And he sayde a symilitude vnto the: Can the blynde shewe the waye to ye blynde? Do they not both the fall in to the dyche? 40 The disciple is not aboue his master. But whosoeuer is perfecte, ye same shalbe as his master. 41 But why seist thou a moote i thy brothers eye, and considrest not the beame, that is in thine awne eye? 42 Or how canst thou saye vnto thy brother: holde styll brother, I wil plucke ye moate out of thyne eye, and thou thy self seist not ye beame in thine awne eye? Thou ypocryte, Fyrst cast the beame out of thine awne eye, and the shalt thou se clearly to pull the moote out of thy brothers eye. 43 For it is no good tre, yt bryngeth forth euell frute: and no euell tre yt bringeth forth good frute. 44 Euery tre is knowne by his frute. For me gather not fygges of thornes, ner grapes of busshes. 45 A good ma out of ye good treasure of his hert, bryngeth forth yt which is good: and an euell ma out of the euell treasure of his hert, bryngeth forth that which is euell. For of the abundaunce of the hert, the mouth speaketh.
