1 Timothy 2:1-15

1 I Exhorte therfore, that aboue all thynges, prayers, supplicacyons, intercessions, and geuynge of thankes be had for all men: 2 for kynges, and for all that are in auctorite, that we maye lyue a quyet and a peaceable lyfe, wyth all Godlynes and honestye. 3 For that is good and accepted in the syght of God oure sauyoure, 4 whych wyll haue all men to be saued, and to come vnto the knowledge of the trueth. 5 For ther is one God, and one mediator betwene God and man, euen the man Christ Iesus, 6 whych gaue him selfe a raunsome for all men, that it shulde be testifyed at hys tyme, 7 where vnto I am ordayned a preacher and an Apostle. I tell the trueth in Christ and lye not: beynge the teacher of the gentyls wyth fayth and veritye. 8 I wyll therfore that the men praye euery where, lyftynge vp pure handes without wrath, or doubtinge. 9 Lykewise also the wemen, that they araye them selues in comlye apparell wyth shamfastnes and discrete behaueour, not wt broyded heare, ether golde or pearles, or costly araye: 10 but as becommeth wemen, that professe godlynesse thorowe good worckes. 11 Let the woman learne in sylence wyth all subieccyon. 12 But I suffre not a woman to teach, nether to vsurpe auctoryte ouer the man: but to be in sylence. 13 For Adam was fyrst fourmed, & then Eue. 14 Adam also was not deceaued, but the woman was deceaued, and was subdued to the transgressyon. 15 Notwythstandynge thorowe bearynge of chyldren she shalbe saued, yf they contynue in fayth and loue, and holynes, wyth discrecyon.

Philippians 1:1-30

1 Paul and Tymothe the seruauntes of Iesu Chryst. To all the saynctes in Chryst Iesu, which are at Philippos with the Bisshops and Deacons. 2 Grace be vnto you and peace from God oure father, and from the Lorde Iesus Chryst. 3 I thanke my God with all remembraunce of you 4 all wayes in all my prayers for you, and praye with gladnes: 5 because ye are come into the fellowshyppe of the Gospell from the fyrst daye vnto nowe 6 and am suerly certyfyed of thys, that he, which hath begonne a good worke in you, shall perfourme it vntyll the daye of Iesus Chryst, 7 as it becommeth me, so iudge I of you all, because I haue you in my herte: for asmoche as ye all are companyons of grace with me, euen in my bondes, and in the defendynge and stablisshynge of the Gospell. 8 For God is my recorde, howe greatly I longe after you all, from the very herte rote in Iesus Chryst. 9 And thys I praye, that youre loue maye increase yet more and more in knowledge, and in all vnderstandynge, 10 that ye maye accepte the thynges that are most excellent, that ye maye be pure, and soche, as offende no man vntyll the daye of Christ: 11 beynge fylled with the frute of ryghtewesnes, which cometh by Iesus Christ vnto the glory and prayse of God. 12 I wolde ye shulde vnderstonde (brethren) that the thynges which happened vnto me, chaunced vnto the greate furtheraunce of the Gospell: 13 So that my bandes in Christ, are manifeste thorowe out all the iudgement hall and in all other places: 14 In so moche that many of the brethren in the Lorde beynge encoraged thorowe my bandes, dare more boldly speake the worde without feare. 15 Some preache Chryst of enuie and stryfe, and some of good wyll, 16 The one parte preache Chryst of stryfe and not syncerely, supposynge to adde more aduersytie to my bandes. 17 Agayne the other parte preache of loue, because they knowe, that I am set to defende the Gospell. 18 What then? So that Chryst be preached anye maner of waye, whether it be by occasyon, or of true meaninge, I am glad therof, ye and wyll be glad. 19 For I knowe, that this shall chaunce to my saluacyon, thorowe youre prayer and ministrynge of the sprete of Iesu Chryst 20 accordinge to my expectacion, and hope, that in nothinge I shalbe ashamed: but that wyth all boldnesse, (as all wayes euen so nowe also) Christ shall be magnifyed in my body, whether it be thorowe lyfe, or thorowe deeth. 21 For Christ is to me lyfe, and deeth is to me auauntage. 22 If it chaunce me to lyue in the flesshe, that thinge is to me frutefull for the worcke, and what I shall chose I wote not. 23 For I am constrayned of these two thinges. I desyre to be loosed, & to be wt Christ which is moche & far better. 24 Neuerthelesse, to abyde in the flesshe is more nedfull for you, 25 And thys am I sure of, that I shall abyde, and continue with you all, for youre furtheraunce and ioye of youre fayth, 26 that youre reioysinge maye be the more aboundant thorowe Iesus Christ in me, by my commynge to you agayne. 27 Onely let youre conuersacyon be, as it be commeth the Gospell of Christ: that whether I come & se you, or els be absent, I maye yet heare of youre condicyon, that ye contynue in one sprete, and in one soule, labourynge as we do, to mayntayne the fayth of the Gospell, 28 and in nothinge fearynge youre aduersaryes, which is to them a cause of perdicyon, but to you of saluacyon, & that of God: 29 for vnto you it is geuen for Chryst, that not onely ye shulde beleue on hym: but also that ye shulde suffre for hys sake, 30 hauynge euen soche a fyght, as ye sawe in me, and nowe heare of me.

Colossians 1:1-29

1 Paul an Apostle of Iesu Chryst by the wyll of God, and brother Timotheus. 2 To the saynctes which are at Colossa, and brethren that beleue in Chryst. Grace be vnto you and peace from God oure father, & from the Lorde Iesu Christ. 3 We geue thankes to God the father of oure Lorde Iesus Christ alwayes for you in oure prayers. 4 For we haue hearde of your fayth in Christ Iesu, and of the loue which ye beare to all saynctes, 5 for the hopes sake which is layd vp in store for you in heauen, of which hope, ye herde before by the true worde of the Gospell, 6 which is come vnto you: euen as it, is frutefull as it is also amonge you, from the daye in the which ye hearde of it, and had experience in the grace of God thorowe the trueth, 7 as ye learned of Epaphra oure deare felowe seruaunt, which is for you a faythfull minister of Chryst, 8 which also declared vnto vs youre loue which ye haue in the sprete. 9 For this cause we also, sence that daye we herde of it, haue not ceasyd to praye for you, and to desyre, that ye myght be fulfylled with the knowledge of hys wyll, in all wysdome and spretuall vnderstandynge, 10 that ye myght walke worthy of the Lorde that in all thinges ye maye please beynge frutefull in all good workes, and encreasynge in the knowledge of God, 11 strengthed with all myght, thorowe hys glorious power, vnto all pacience and longe sufferynge with ioyfulnes 12 geuynge thankes vnto the father, which hath made vs mete to be partakers of the inheritaunce of saynctes in lyght, 13 Which hath delyuered vs from the power of derknes, and hath translated vs into the kyngdome of hys dere sone 14 by whom we haue redempcion thorowe his bloude euen the forgeuenes of sinnes 15 which is the ymage of the inuisyble God, fyrst begotten of all creatures. 16 For by him were all thynges created, that are in heuen, and that are in erth: visyble and inuisyble, whether they be maieste or lorde shyppe, ether rule or power. All thynges were creatyd by hym and for hym, 17 & he is before all thynges, and by him all thynges haue theyr beynge. 18 And he is the heed of the body, euen of the congregacyon: he is the begynnynge and fyrst begotten of the deed, that in all thynges he myght haue the preeminence. 19 For it pleased the father, that in him shulde all fulnes dwell, 20 and by him to reconcyle all thinge vnto him selfe, and to set at peace by hym thorowe the bloude of hys crosse, both thynges in heauen and thinges in erth. 21 And you which were somtyme farre of and enemyes, because youre myndes were set in euyll worckes hath he nowe yet reconcyled 22 in the body of hys flesshe thorowe deeth, to make you holy, and vnblameable, & without faut in hys awne syght, 23 yf ye contynue grounded and stablysshed in the fayth, and be not moued awaye from the hope of the Gospell, wherof ye haue herde, howe that it is preached amonge all creatures which are vnder heauen, wherof I Paul am made a mynyster. 24 Nowe ioye I in my sufferinges for you and fulfyll that which is behynde of the passyons of Christ in my flesshe, for hys bodies sake, which is the congregacyon: 25 wherof I am made a mynister, accordynge to the ordinaunce of God, which ordinaunce was geuen me vnto you warde to fullfyll the worde of God, 26 that mistery which hath bene hyd sence the worlde beganne, and sence the begynnynge of generacyons: but nowe is opened to his saynctes, 27 to whom God wolde make knowen what the gloryous ryches of thys mystery is amonge the Gentyls, which ryches is Chryst in you, the hope of glory, 28 whom we preache, warnynge all men, and teachynge all men in all wysdome, to make all men parfecte in Christ Iesu. 29 Wherin I also laboure and stryue, euen as farforth as his strength worketh in me myghtely.

James 1:1-27

1 Iames the seruaunt of God & of the Lorde Iesus Christ, sendeth gretyng to the twelue trybes which are scattered abroade. 2 My brethren, count it for an excedyng ioye, when ye fall into diuers temptacyons: 3 knowyng this, that the trying of your fayth gendreth pacience: 4 and let pacience haue her parfect worke, that ye maye be parfecte and sounde, lackyng nothyng. 5 If eny of you lacke wysdome, let hym aske of him that geueth it: euen God, which geueth to all men indifferentlye, and casteth no man in the teeth: and it shalbe geuen him. 6 But let him aske in fayth, and wauer not, For he that douteth, is lyke a waue of the see, which is tost of the wyndes and caryed with violence. 7 Nether let that man thinke, that he shall receaue eny thing of the Lorde. 8 A wauerynng mynded man, is vnstable in all his wayes. 9 Let the brother which is of lowe degre reioyce whan he is exalted. 10 Agayne: let hym that is riche, reioyce whan he is made lowe. For euen as the flower of the grasse, shall he passe awaye. 11 For as the sonne ryseth with heat, & the grasse wydereth, & hys flower falleth awaye, and the beautie of the fassyon of it perissheth: euen so shall the rich man perisshe in his wayes. 12 Happy is the man that endureth temptacyon: for when he is tryed, he shall receaue the crowne of lyfe, which the Lorde hath promysed to them that loue hym. 13 Let no man saye when he is tempted, that he is tempted of God, for as God can not be tempted with euill, so nether he hymselfe tempt the eny man. 14 But euery man is tempted, whan he is drawne awaye, & entysed of hys awne concupiscence. 15 Then, when lust hath conceaued, she bryngeth forth synne: & synne when it is finisshed, bryngeth forth deeth. 16 Do not erre my deare brethren, 17 Euery good gyfte, and euery parfayt gyft, is from aboue, and commeth downe from the father of lyghtes wt whome is no variablenes, nether is he chaunged vnto darcknes. 18 Of hys awne wyll begat he vs with the worde of trueth, that we shulde be the fyrst frutes of hys creatures. 19 Wherfore (deare brethren) let euery man be swyfte to heare, slowe to speake, slowe to wrath. 20 For the wrath of man worketh not that which is ryghteous before God. 21 Wherfore laye a parte all fylthynes & superfluyte of maliciousnes, and receaue wt meknes, the worde that is graffed in you, which is able to saue your soules. 22 And se that ye be doars of the worde & not hearers onely, deceauing your awne selues. 23 For yf eny man heare the worde and declareth not the same by his workes, he is lyke vnto a man beholding his bodely face in a glasse. 24 For assone as he hath loked on hym selfe, he goeth his waye, & forgetteth immediatly what hys fassyon was. 25 But who so loketh in the parfayt lawe of libertye, and contynueth therin (yf he be not a forget full hearer, but a doar of the worke) the same shalbe happye in his dede. 26 If eny man among you seme to be deuoute &, refrayneth not hys tong, but deceaueth hys awne hert, thys mannes deuocyon is in vayne. 27 Pure deuocyon and vndefyled before God the father, is this: to visyt the fatherlesse & widdowes in theyr aduersyte, & to kepe him selfe vnspotted of the worlde.

Proverbs 1:1-33

1 The prouerbes of Salomon, the sonne of Dauid kynge of Israel: 2 to learne wisdome, & to perceaue the instruccyon, and to perceaue the wordes of vnderstondynge: & therby to receaue prudence, 3 ryghteousnes, iudgement and equite. 4 That the very simple myght haue wyt, and that the yonge men myght haue knowledge and true vnderstanding. 5 By hearing the wise man shall come by more wysedome: and he that is endewed wt vnderstanding 6 shal optayn wit to perceaue a parable, & the interpretacyon therof, the wordes of the wyse, & the darcke speaches of the same. 7 The feare of the Lorde is the begynnyng of wysdome. But fooles despyse wysdome & instruccion. 8 My sonne, heare thy fathers doctrine: & forsake not the lawe of thy mother: 9 for that shall bringe grace vnto thy heed, and shalbe as a cheyne about thy neck. 10 My sonne, consente not vnto synners, 11 yf they entise the, & saye: come with vs, we will laye wayte for bloude, & lurcke preuely for the innocent without a cause: 12 we shall swalowe then vp lyke the hell, & deuoure them quycke and hole, as those that go downe into the pyt. 13 So shall we fynde all maner of costelye ryches, & fill our houses wt spoyles. 14 Cast in thy lot among vs: & let vs haue all one purse. 15 My sonne, walke not thou with them: refrayne thy fote from their waye. 16 For their fete runne to euell: & are hasty to shed bloud. 17 But in vayn is the net laied forth before the byrdes eyes: 18 yee they them selues laye wayte one for anothers bloud & one of them wold sleye another. 19 These are the wayes of all soch as be couetous, the one wold rauysh anothers lyfe. 20 Wisdome cryeth wtout, & putteth forth her voyce in the stretes. 21 She calleth before the congregacyon in the open gates, & sheweth her wordes thorow the citye, saying: 22 O ye children, how longe wyll ye loue childesshnes? how longe wyll the scorners delyte in scorning, & the vnwyse be enemyes vnto knowledge? 23 O turne you vnto my correccion: lo, I wyll expresse my mynde vnto you, & make you vnderstande my wordes. 24 I haue called, & ye refused it: I haue stretched out my hande: & no man regarded it: 25 but all my councels haue ye despised: & set my correccion at naught. 26 Therfore shall I also laugh in youre destruccion, & mocke you, when that thinge that ye feare commeth vpon you: 27 euen when the thynge that ye be afrayed of, falleth in sodenly lyke a storme, & your misery lyke a tempest: yee, when trouble & heuines commeth vpon you. 28 Then shal they call vpon me, but I wyll not heare: they shall seke me early, but they shall not fynde me. 29 And that because they hated knowledge, & receaued not the feare of the Lorde: 30 but abhorred my councell, and despysed all my correccion. 31 Therfore shall they eate the frutes of theyr awne waye, & be filled with their awne inuencions: 32 for the turnynge awaye of the vnwyse shall sleye them, and the prosperytie of fooles shalbe their awne destruccyon. 33 But whoso harkneth vnto me, shall dwell safely, and be sure from any feare of euyll.
