1 For the kingdome of heauen is like vnto a certaine, housholder, which went out at the dawning of the day to hire labourers into his vineyarde. 2 And he agreed with the labourers for a peny a day, and sent them into his vineyard. 3 And he went out about the third houre, and sawe other standing idle in the market place, 4 And sayd vnto them, Goe ye also into my vineyard, and whatsoeuer is right, I will giue you: and they went their way. 5 Againe he went out about the sixt and ninth houre, and did likewise. 6 And he went about the eleuenth houre, and found other standing idle, and sayd vnto them, Why stand ye here all the day idle? 7 They sayd vnto him, Because no man hath hired vs. He sayd to them, Goe ye also into my vineyard, and whatsoeuer is right, that shall ye receiue. 8 And when euen was come, the master of the vineyard sayd vnto his steward, Call the labourers, and giue them their hire, beginning at the last, till thou come to the first. 9 And they which were hired about ye eleuenth houre, came and receiued euery man a penie. 10 Nowe when the first came, they supposed that they should receiue more, but they likewise receiued euery man a penie. 11 And when they had receiued it, they murmured against the master of the house, 12 Saying, These last haue wrought but one houre, and thou hast made them equall vnto vs, which haue borne the burden and heate of the day. 13 And hee answered one of them, saying, Friend, I doe thee no wrong: didst thou not agree with me for a penie? 14 Take that which is thine owne, and go thy way: I will giue vnto this last, as much as to thee. 15 Is it not lawfull for me to do as I will with mine owne? Is thine eye euil, because I am good? 16 So the last shalbe first, and the first last: for many are called, but fewe chosen.

2 Corinthians 8:1-9:15

1 We doe you also to wit, brethren, of the grace of God bestowed vpon the Churches of Macedonia, 2 Because in great triall of affliction their ioy abounded, and their most extreme pouertie abounded vnto their rich liberalitie. 3 For to their power (I beare record) yea, and beyonde their power, they were willing, 4 And praied vs with great instance that we woulde receiue the grace, and fellowship of the ministring which is toward the Saints. 5 And this they did, not as we looked for: but gaue their owne selues, first to the Lord, and after vnto vs by the will of God, 6 That we should exhort Titus, that as hee had begon, so he would also accomplish the same grace among you also. 7 Therefore, as yee abound in euery thing, in faith and woorde, and knowledge, and in all diligence, and in your loue towardes vs, euen so see that yee abound in this grace also. 8 This say I not by commandement, but because of the diligence of others: therefore prooue I the naturalnesse of your loue. 9 For ye knowe the grace of our Lord Iesus Christ, that hee being rich, for your sakes became poore, that yee through his pouertie might be made rich. 10 And I shewe my minde herein: for this is expedient for you, which haue begun not to doe onely, but also to will, a yeare agoe. 11 Nowe therefore performe to doe it also, that as there was a readinesse to will, euen so yee may performe it of that which yee haue. 12 For if there be first a willing minde, it is accepted according to that a man hath, and not according to that he hath not. 13 Neither is it that other men should be eased and you grieued: But vpon like condition, at this time your abundance supplieth their lacke: 14 That also their aboundance may bee for your lacke, that there may be equalitie: 15 As it is written, Hee that gathered much, had nothing ouer, and hee that gathered litle, had not the lesse. 16 And thanks be vnto God, which hath put in the heart of Titus the same care for you. 17 Because hee accepted the exhortation, yea, hee was so carefull that of his owne accorde hee went vnto you. 18 And wee haue sent also with him the brother, whose praise is in the Gospel throughout al the Churches. 19 (And not so onely, but is also chosen of the Churches to be a fellowe in our iourney, concerning this grace that is ministred by vs vnto the glorie of the same Lord, and declaration of your prompt minde) 20 Auoiding this, that no man shoulde blame vs in this aboundance that is ministred by vs, 21 Prouiding for honest thinges, not onely before the Lord, but also before men. 22 And we haue sent with them our brother, whom we haue oft times prooued to be diligent in many thinges, but nowe much more diligent, for the great confidence, which I haue in you. 23 Whether any doe inquire of Titus, he is my fellowe and helper to you ward: or of our brethren, they are messengers of the Churches, and the glorie of Christ. 24 Wherefore shew toward them, and before the Churches the proofe of your loue, and of the reioycing that we haue of you.

2 Corinthians 9:1-15

1 For as touching the ministring to the Saints, it is superfluous for me to write vnto you. 2 For I knowe your readinesse of minde, whereof I boast my selfe of you vnto them of Macedonia, and say, that Achaia was prepared a yeere agoe, and your zeale hath prouoked many. 3 Nowe haue I sent the brethren, lest our reioycing ouer you shoulde bee in vaine in this behalfe, that yee (as I haue sayde) be readie: 4 Lest if they of Macedonia come with me, and finde you vnprepared, we (that wee may not say, you) should be ashamed in this my constant boasting. 5 Wherefore, I thought it necessarie to exhort the brethren to come before vnto you, and to finish your beneuolence appointed afore, that it might be readie, and come as of beneuolence, and not as of niggardlinesse. 6 This yet remember, that he which soweth sparingly, shall reape also sparingly, and hee that soweth liberally, shall reape also liberally. 7 As euery man wisheth in his heart, so let him giue, not grudgingly, or of necessitie: for God loueth a cheerefull giuer. 8 And God is able to make all grace to abound towarde you, that yee alwayes hauing all sufficiencie in all thinges, may abounde in euery good worke, 9 (As it is written, He hath sparsed abroad and hath giuen to the poore: his beneuolence remayneth for euer. 10 Also hee that findeth seede to the sower, will minister likewise bread for foode, and multiplie your seede, and increase the fruites of your beneuolence,) 11 That on all partes yee may bee made rich vnto all liberalitie, which causeth through vs thankesgiuing vnto God. 12 For the ministration of this seruice not onely supplieth the necessities of the Saintes, but also aboundantly causeth many to giue thankes to God, 13 (Which by the experiment of this ministration praise God for your voluntarie submission to the Gospell of Christ, and for your liberall distribution to them, and to all men) 14 And in their praier for you, to log after you greatly, for the aboundant grace of God in you. 15 Thankes therefore bee vnto God for his vnspeakeable gift.

Philippians 4:13

13 I am able to do al things through the helpe of Christ, which strengtheneth me.

Psalms 66:1-20

1 To him that excelleth. A song or Psalme. Rejoice in God, all ye inhabitants of the earth. 2 Sing forth the glory of his name: make his praise glorious. 3 Say vnto God, Howe terrible art thou in thy workes! through the greatnesse of thy power shall thine enemies be in subiection vnto thee. 4 All the worlde shall worship thee, and sing vnto thee, euen sing of thy Name. Selah. 5 Come and beholde the workes of God: he is terrible in his doing towarde the sonnes of men. 6 He hath turned the Sea into drie land: they passe through the riuer on foote: there did we reioyce in him. 7 He ruleth the worlde with his power: his eyes beholde the nations: the rebellious shall not exalt them selues. Selah. 8 Prayse our God, ye people, and make the voyce of his prayse to be heard. 9 Which holdeth our soules in life, and suffereth not our feete to slippe. 10 For thou, O God, hast proued vs, thou hast tryed vs as siluer is tryed. 11 Thou hast brought vs into the snare, and layed a strait chaine vpon our loynes. 12 Thou hast caused men to ryde ouer our heads: we went into fire and into water, but thou broughtest vs out into a welthie place. 13 I will go into thine House with burnt offrings, and will pay thee my vowes, 14 Which my lippes haue promised, and my mouth hath spoken in mine affliction. 15 I will offer vnto thee the burnt offerings of fat rammes with incense: I will prepare bullocks and goates. Selah. 16 Come and hearken, all ye that feare God, and I will tell you what he hath done to my soule. 17 I called vnto him with my mouth, and he was exalted with my tongue. 18 If I regard wickednesse in mine heart, the Lord will not heare me. 19 But God hath heard me, and considered the voyce of my prayer. 20 Praysed be God, which hath not put backe my prayer, nor his mercie from me.

Philippians 1:1-30

1 Paul and Timotheus the seruants of IESVS CHRIST, to all the Saintes in Christ Iesus which are at Philippi, with the Bishops, and Deacons: 2 Grace be with you, and peace from God our Father, and from the Lord Iesus Christ. 3 I thanke my God, hauing you in perfect memorie, 4 (Alwayes in all my praiers for all you, praying with gladnesse) 5 Because of the fellowship which ye haue in the Gospel, from the first day vnto nowe. 6 And I am persuaded of this same thing, that he that hath begunne this good worke in you, wil perfourme it vntill the day of Iesus Christ, 7 As it becommeth me so to iudge of you all, because I haue you in remembrance that both in my bands, and in my defence, and confirmation of the Gospell you all were partakers of my grace. 8 For God is my recorde, howe I long after you all from the very heart roote in Iesus Christ. 9 And this I pray, that your loue may abound, yet more and more in knowledge, and in all iudgement, 10 That ye may alowe those things which are best, that ye may be pure, and without offence vntill the day of Christ, 11 Filled with the fruites of righteousnesse, which are by Iesus Christ vnto the glorie and praise of God. 12 I would ye vnderstood, brethren, that the things which haue come vnto me, are turned rather to the furthering of the Gospell, 13 So that my bandes in Christ are famous throughout all the iudgement hall, and in all other places, 14 In so much that many of the brethren in the Lord are boldened through my bandes, and dare more frankely speake the word. 15 Some preache. Christ euen through enuie and strife, and some also of good will. 16 The one part preacheth Christ of contention and not purely, supposing to adde more affliction to my bandes. 17 But the others of loue, knowing that I am set for the defence of the Gospell. 18 What then? yet Christ is preached all maner wayes, whether it be vnder a pretence, or syncerely: and I therein ioye: yea and will ioye. 19 For I knowe that this shall turne to my saluation through your prayer, and by the helpe of the Spirit of Iesus Christ, 20 As I feruently looke for, and hope, that in nothing I shalbe ashamed, but that with all confidence, as alwayes, so nowe Christ shalbe magnified in my body, whether it be by life or by death. 21 For Christ is to me both in life, and in death aduantage. 22 And whether to liue in the flesh were profitable for me, and what to chuse I knowe not. 23 For I am distressed betweene both, desiring to be loosed and to be with Christ, which is best of all. 24 Neuerthelesse, to abide in the flesh, is more needefull for you. 25 And this am I sure of, that I shall abide, and with you all continue, for your furtherance and ioy of your faith, 26 That ye may more aboundantly reioyce in IESVS CHRIST for me, by my comming to you againe. 27 Onely let your conuersation be, as it becommeth the Gospel of Christ, that whether I come and see you, or els be absent, I may heare of your matters that ye continue in one Spirit, and in one mind, fighting together through the faith of the Gospel. 28 And in nothing feare your aduersaries, which is to them a token of perdition, and to you of saluation, and that of God. 29 For vnto you it is giuen for Christ, that not onely ye should beleeue in him, but also suffer for his sake, 30 Hauing the same fight, which ye sawe in me, and nowe heare to be in me.
