1 Let as many seruaunts as are vnder the yoke, count their masters worthie of all honour, that the Name of God, and his doctrine be not euill spoken of. 2 And they which haue beleeuing masters, let them not despise them, because they are brethren, but rather doe seruice, because they are faithfull, and beloued, and partakers of the benefite. These things teach and exhort. 3 If any man teach otherwise, and consenteth not to the wholesome wordes of our Lord Iesus Christ, and to the doctrine, which is according to godlinesse, 4 He is puft vp and knoweth nothing, but doteth about questions and strife of words, whereof commeth enuie, strife, railings, euill surmisings, 5 Frowarde disputations of men of corrupt mindes and destitute of ye trueth, which thinke that gaine is godlines: from such separate thy selfe. 6 But godlinesse is great gaine, if a man be content with that he hath. 7 For we brought nothing into the world, and it is certaine, that we can carie nothing out. 8 Therefore when wee haue foode and raiment, let vs therewith be content. 9 For they that will be rich, fall into tentation and snares, and into many foolish and noysome lustes, which drowne men in perdition and destruction. 10 For the desire of money is the roote of all euill, which while some lusted after, they erred from the faith, and pearced themselues through with many sorowes. 11 But thou, O man of God, flee these things, and follow after righteousnesse, godlines, faith, loue, patience, and meekenes. 12 Fight the good fight of faith: lay holde of eternal life, whereunto thou art also called, and hast professed a good profession before many witnesses. 13 I charge thee in the sight of God, who quickeneth all thinges, and before Iesus Christ, which vnder Pontius Pilate witnessed a good confession, 14 That thou keepe this commandement without spot, and vnrebukeable, vntill the appearing of our Lord Iesus Christ, 15 Which in due time hee shall shewe, that is blessed and Prince onely, the King of Kings and Lord of Lordes, 16 Who onely hath immortalitie, and dwelleth in the light that none can attaine vnto, whom neuer man sawe, neither can see, vnto whome bee honour and power euerlasting, Amen. 17 Charge them that are rich in this world, that they be not high minded, and that they trust not in vncertaine riches, but in the liuing God, (which giueth vs aboundantly, all things to enioy) 18 That they doe good, and be riche in good woorkes, and readie to distribute, and comunicate, 19 Laying vp in store for themselues a good foundation against the time to come, that they may obteine eternall life. 20 O Timotheus, keepe that which is committed vnto thee, and auoide prophane and vaine babblings, and oppositios of science falsely so called, 21 Which while some professe, they haue erred concerning the faith. Grace be with thee, Amen.

Verely I say vnto you, they haue their rewarde. 6 But when thou prayest, enter into thy chamber and when thou hast shut thy doore, pray vnto thy Father which is in secret, and thy Father which seeth in secret, shall rewarde thee openly. 7 Also when ye pray, vse no vaine repetitions as the Heathen: for they thinke to be heard for their much babbling. 8 Be ye not like them therefore: for your Father knoweth whereof ye haue neede, before ye aske of him. 9 After this maner therefore pray ye, Our father which art in heauen, halowed be thy name. 10 Thy Kingdome come. Thy will be done euen in earth, as it is in heauen. 11 Giue vs this day our dayly bread. 12 And forgiue vs our dettes, as we also forgiue our detters. 13 And leade vs not into tentation, but deliuer vs from euill: for thine is the kingdome, and the power, and the glorie for euer. Amen. 14 For if ye doe forgiue men their trespasses, your heauenly Father will also forgiue you. 15 But if ye do not forgiue men their trespasses,, no more will your father forgiue you your trespaces. 16 Moreouer, when ye fast, looke not sowre as the hypocrites: for they disfigure their faces, that they might seeme vnto men to fast. Verely I say vnto you, that they haue their rewarde. 17 But when thou fastest, anoint thine head, and wash thy face, 18 That thou seeme not vnto men to fast, but vnto thy Father which is in secret: and thy Father which seeth in secret, will rewarde thee openly. 19 Lay not vp treasures for your selues vpon the earth, where the mothe and canker corrupt, and where theeues digge through and steale. 20 But lay vp treasures for your selues in heauen, where neither the mothe nor canker corrupteth, and where theeues neither digge through, nor steale. 21 For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also. 22 The light of the body is the eye: if then thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be light. 23 But if thine eye be wicked, then all thy body shalbe darke. Wherefore if the light that is in thee, be darkenes, howe great is that darkenesse? 24 No man can serue two masters: for eyther he shall hate the one, and loue the other, or els he shall leane to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serue God and riches. 25 Therefore I say vnto you, be not carefull for your life, what ye shall eate, or what ye shall drinke: nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more worth then meate? and the bodie then raiment? 26 Behold the foules of the heauen: for they sowe not, neither reape, nor carie into the barnes: yet your heauenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better then they? 27 Which of you by taking care is able to adde one cubite vnto his stature? 28 And why care ye for raiment? Learne howe the lilies of the fielde doe growe: they are not wearied, neither spinne: 29 Yet I say vnto you, that euen Salomon in all his glorie was not arayed like one of these. 30 Wherefore if God so clothe the grasse of the fielde which is to day, and to morowe is cast into the ouen, shall he not doe much more vnto you, O ye of litle faith? 31 Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eate? or what shall we drinke? or where with shall we be clothed? 32 (For after all these things seeke the Gentiles) for your heauenly Father knoweth, that ye haue neede of all these things. 33 But seeke ye first the kingdome of God, and his righteousnesse, and all these things shall be ministred vnto you. 34 Care not then for the morowe: for the morowe shall care for it selfe: the day hath ynough with his owne griefe.
