1 Kings 18:1-46

1 After processe of many dayes the worde of the Lord came to Elia in the thyrde yeare, sayinge: go shewe thy selfe vnto Ahab, and I wyll sende rayne vpon the erth. 2 And Elia went to shewe hym selfe vnto Ahab, & ther was a great famyshement in Schomron. 3 And Ahab called Obadia, whych was the gouerner of hys house: & Obadia feared God greatlye: 4 For when Iezabell destroyed the prophetes of the Lord, he toke an hundred prophetes and hyd them, fiftie men in one caue & fyftie in another, & prouyded bred & water for them. 5 And Ahab sayde vnto Obadia: Go into the lande, vnto all fountaynes of water, & vnto all brokes, yf happlye we maye fynde grasse, to saue the horses and the mules, & that we destroye not some of the beastes. 6 And so they deuyded the lande betwene them, to walke thorow it. Ahab went one waye by hym selfe, and Obadia went another waye by hym selfe. 7 And it chaunced that as Obadia was in the waye, Elia mett him. And Obadia knewe hym, & fell on hys face, & sayde: art not thou my Lord Elia? 8 And he answered hym: I am he. Go and tell thy Lorde: beholde, Elia is here. 9 He sayde: what haue I synned, that thou woldest delyuer thy seruaunt into the hand of Ahab, to sley me? 10 As trulie as the Lord thy God lyueth, there is no nacyon or kyngdome, whether my Lorde hath not sent, to seke the. And when they sayde: he is not there, he tooke an othe of the kyngdome & nacyon, whan he founde the not. 11 And nowe thowe sayest: goo & tell thy Lorde, that Elia is here. 12 And as sone as I am gone from the, the sprete of the Lord shall carie the into some place that I do not knowe. and so when I come and tell Ahab, & he canne not finde the, he shall sley me. But I thy seruaunt feare the Lorde from my youth vp. 13 Was it not tolde my Lorde, what I dyd, when Iezabell slue the prophetes of the Lorde howe I hydde an hundred men of the Lordes prophetes, fyftie men in one caue and fyftie in another, and prouyded them of breed and water? 14 And nowe thou sayest, goo thou nowe and shewe thy Lorde. Beholde, Elia is here, that he maye sley me? 15 And Elia sayde: as truly as the Lorde of Hostes lyueth, before whom I stande, I wyll shew my selfe vnto him this daye. 16 So Obadia went to mete Ahab, and tolde hym. And Ahab went to mete Elia. 17 And it fortuned that whan Ahab sawe Elia, he sayde vnto him: art thou he that troubleth Israel? 18 He answered: it is not I that haue troubled Israel, but thou, and thy fathers house, in that ye haue forsaken the commaundementes of the Lorde, and thou hast folowed Baal. 19 Nowe therfore sende and geather to me all Israel vnto mount Carmel, and the prophetes of Baal foure hundred and fyftie, and the prophetes of the Idols groues foure hundred, which eate of Iezabels table. 20 So Ahab sent vnto all the chyldren of Israel, & gathered the prophetes togeather vnto mount Carmel. 21 And Elia came vnto all the people, and sayde: howe longe halte ye betwene two opynions? If the Lord be God, folowe hym: but yf Baal be he, then go after hym. And the people answered hym not one worde. 22 Then sayde Elia vnto the people agayne. I onely remayne a prophete of the Lorde: but Baals prophetes are foure hundred and fyftie. 23 Let them therfore geue vs two oxen, & let them chose the one, & cut hym in peces, & laye hym on wodd, and put no fyre vnder: and I will dresse the other oxe, & laye him on wodd, and will put no fyre vnder. 24 And call ye on the name of youre God, & I wyll call on the name of the Lorde: and then the God that answereth by fyre, let him be God. And all the people answered & sayde. yt is well spoken. 25 And Elia sayd vnto the prophetes of Baal: chose you an oxe, and dresse hym fyrst (for ye are many) and call on the name of your goddes, but put no fyre vnder. 26 And they toke the one oxe that he dyd geue them, & they dressed it & called on the name of Baal from mornynge to noone: sayeng: O Baal heare vs. But there was no voyce nor one to answere. And they lepte vpon the aulter that they had made. 27 And at none it fortuned, that Elia mocked them, and sayde: crye lowde, for he is a God: peraduenture he is talkinge or occupyed (in folowinge vpon his enemyes) or is in his iourneye, or happely he slepeth, & must be awaked withe youre crye. 28 And they cryed lowde, and cut them selues, as their maner was, wt knyues & launcers, tyll the bloude folowed on them. 29 And it chaunsed, that when myddaye was passed they prophesyed vntill the tyme of the euenyng sacrifyce. But there was nether voyce ner one to answere, ner any that regarded them. 30 And Elia sayde vnto all the folke: come to me. And all the people came to hym. And he repayred the aulter of the Lord, that was broken. 31 And Elia toke .xij. stones according to the nombre of the .xij. trybes of the sonnes of Iacob (vnto whom the worde of the Lorde came, sayeng. Israel shalbe thy name. 32 And with the stones he made an aultare in the name of the Lorde. And he made a dyche rounde about the aulter, as brode as two forowes of the corne felde. 33 And he put the wodd in order, & hewed the oxe in peces, & layed hym on the wodd, and sayde: fyll foure barels wt water, and powre it on the burntsacrifyce & on the wodd. 34 And he sayd: do so agayne. And they dyd so the seconde tyme. And he sayde agayne: do it the thyrde tyme. And they dyd it the thyrde tyme. 35 And the water ranne rounde about the aulter, and he fylled the pitte wyth water also. 36 And it fortuned when the tyme came (wherin the burntsacrifyce of the eueninge vsed to be offred) Elia the prophete came & sayd: Lord God of Abraham, Isahac & of Israel, it shalbe knowen this daye, that thou art the God in Israel, & that I am thy seruaunt, & that I haue done all these thynges at thy commaundement. 37 Heare me (O Lorde) heare me, that this people maye knowe, that thou art the Lorde God, & thou hast turned theyr herte agayne now at the last. 38 And the fyre of the Lord fell, & consumed the burntsacrifyce & the wodd, the stones & the dust, & lycked vp the water that was in the pitte. 39 And when all the people sawe it, they fell on their faces, & sayd. The Lord, he is God, the Lord, he is God. 40 And Elia sayde vnto them. Take the prophetes of Baal, & let not one of them escape. And they toke them, and Elia brought them vnto the brooke Kison, & slue them there. 41 And Elia sayd vnto Ahab: gett the vp, eate and drinck, for ther is a sounde of moche rayne. 42 And so Ahab went vp to eate and to drinck, & Elia went vp to the toppe of Carmel. And he layed him selfe flatt vpon the erth, & put his face betwene his knees, 43 & sayd to his seruaunt: go vp (I praye the) & looke towarde the waye of the see. And he went vp & loked, & sayde: there is nothyng. And he sayde: go agayne .vij. tymes. 44 And it fortuned, that at the seuenth tyme he sayd: behold, there ariseth a little clowde of the see, lyke a mannes hande. He sayde: go, & saye vnto Ahab, Make fast thy charet, & gett the downe, that the rayne stoppe the not. 45 And it came to passe, that in the meane while, the heuen was blacke wt clowdes & winde, & there was a great rayne. And Ahab gatt vp & came to Iezreel. 46 And the hand of the Lord was on Elia, & he gyrded vp hys loynes, & ranne before Ahab, tyll he came to Iezreel.

Revelation 17:1-18

1 And ther came one of the seuen Angels, whyche had the seuen vyalles: and talked wyth me, sayenge vnto me: come, I wyll shewe vnto the, the iudgement of the great whore that sytteth vpon many waters, 2 wyth whome haue commytted fornicacion the kynges of the erthe, and the inhabyters of the erth are droncken wyth the wyne of hir fornicacion. 3 And the sprete caryed me awaye in to the wyldernes. And I sawe a woman syt vpon a rose colored beast, full of names of blasphemye, whyche had seuen heades and ten hornes. 4 And the woman was arayed in purple and rose coloure, and decked wyth golde, precious stone, and pearles, and had a cup of golde in her hande, full of abhominacions and fylthynes of her fornicacion. 5 And in her forheade was a name written, a mystery, gret Babylon the mother of whordom and abominacions of the erth. 6 And I sawe the wyfe droncken wyth the bloude of saynctes, and with the bloude of the wytnesses of Iesu. And when I sawe her: I wondred with great meruayle. 7 And the Angell sayde vnto me: wherfore maruaylest thou? I wyll shewe the the mystery of the woman, and of the beast that beryth her, which hath seuen heades and ten hornes. 8 The beast that thon seest, was, and is not, and shall ascende out of the bottomlesse pyt, and shall go into perdicion, & they that dwel on the erth shall wondre (whose names are not written in the boke of lyfe from the begynnynge of the worlde) when they behold the beast that was and is not. 9 And here is a mynde that hath wysdome. The seuen heades are seuen mountaynes, on which the woman sytteth, 10 they are also seuen kynges. Fyue are fallen, and one is, and another is not yet come. And when he commeth, he must continew a shorte space. 11 And the beast that was, & is not, is euen the eyght and is one of the seuen, and shall go into destruccion. 12 And the ten hornes which thou sawest are ten kynges which haue receaued no kingdom as yet, but shall receaue power as kynges at one houre wyth the beast. 13 These haue one mynde, and shall geue their power and strength vnto the beast. 14 These shall fyght with the lambe, & the lambe shall ouercome them. For he is Lorde of lordes, and kynge of kynges, and they that are on his side, are called, and chosen, and faythfull. 15 And he sayde vnto me: the waters whych thou sawest, where the whore sitteth, are people, and folke, & nacions, and tonges. 16 And the ten hornes, which thou sawest vpon the beast, are they that shall hate the whore, & shall make her desolate and naked, & shall eate her flesshe, & burne her wyth fyre. 17 For God hath put in theyr hertes to fulfyll his wyll, & to do wyth one consent, for to geue their kyngdome vnto the beast, vntyll the wordes of God be fulfylled. 18 And the woman which thou sawest, is the great cytye, whiche raygneth ouer the kynges of the erth.

And take the seconde bullock, & offer burnt sacrifice vpon the wodd of the groue, which thou shalt cut downe. 27 Then Gedeon toke ten men of his seruauntes, & dyd as the Lord bad him. But because he durst not do it by daye for feare of his fathers houshold & of the men of the cytie, he dyd it by nyght. 28 And when the men of the cytie were vp erlye in the morning: Beholde, the aultare of Baal was broken, & the groue cut downe that was by it, & the seconde bullock offered vpon the aulter that was made. 29 And they sayde one to another: who hath done this thing & whan they enquered & asked, they sayde: Gedeon the sonne of Ioas hath done this thing. 30 Then the men of the cytie sayde vnto Ioas: bringe out thy sonne, that he maye dye? because he hath destroyed the aulter of Baal, & cut downe the groue that was by it. 31 And Ioas sayde vnto all that stode by him: will ye leade Baals cause? or will ye be his defenders? he that hath medled agaynst him, let him dye or the mornynge.
