Joshua 22:5

5 But in any wise take diligent hede, and do the commaundement and lawe, whych Moses the seruaunt of the Lorde charged you: that ye loue the Lorde youre God, and walke in all hys wayes, and kepe hys commaundementes, and cleaue vnto him, and serue him with all youre hertes, & all youre soules.

Isaiah 1:1-31

1 The vision of Esay the sonne of Amos which he sawe vpon Iuda and Ierusalem: in the dayes of Uzia and Ioatham, Ahaz & Iehezikiah kynges of Iuda. 2 Heare, O heauen, & Herken O earth: For the Lorde hath spoken: I haue norished and promoted children, but they haue done wyckedly against me. 3 The oxe hath knowne his owner & the asse his masters cribb: but Israel hath receaued no knowledge, my people hath no vnderstandyng. 4 Alas for thys synfull nacion, a people of great iniquitie: a seed of vngracious people corruptinge ther wayes. They haue forsaken the Lorde, they haue prouoked the holy one of Israel vnto anger, and are gone backward. 5 Wherby shulde ye be plaged any more for ye are euer fallinge awaye. The whole head is syck, & the hert is heuy. 6 From the sole of the fote vnto the head, there is no whole parte in all your body: but all are woundes, botches, sores, & strypes, whych can nether be helped, bounde vp, molifyed, ner eased wt any oyntment. 7 Your land lyeth waste, your cyties are brent vp, your enemyes deuoure youre lande, & ye must be fayne to stande, & loke vpon it: & it is desolate, as they were subuerted that were alienate from the Lorde. 8 Moreouer, the daughter of Syon ys left alone lyke a cotage in a vineyard, lyke a lodge in a garden of cucumbers, lyke a wasted cytie. 9 And excepte the Lorde of Hostes had left vs a fewe alyue: we shuld haue bene as Sodoma, and lyke vnto Gomorra. 10 Heare the worde of the lorde ye Lordes of Sodoma: & herken vnto the lawe of our God, thou people of Gomorra. 11 Why offre ye so many sacrifices vnto me saith Lorde? I am full of the brentoffrynges of wethers, and of the fatnesse of fedbeastes. I haue no pleasure in the bloud of bullokes, lambes and goates. 12 When ye come to apeare before me, who requireth this of you to treade within my porches? 13 Therfore offre me no mo oblacions, for it is but lost laboure. Incense is an abhominable thinge vnto me. I Maye not awaye with youre newe moones, your Sabbathes & gatheringe togyther at the solempne dayes. 14 I hate your newe mone dayes & solempne feastes, euen fro my very hert. I can not awaye wt suche vanitie & holdinge in of the people. 15 They lye vpon me as a burthen, and I am wery of beringe them. Whan ye holde out your handes, I will turne myne eyes from you. And though ye make many prayers, yet wil I heare nothynge at all, seyng your handes are ful of bloude. 16 Wash you therfore, and make you cleane, put awaye your euell ententes out of my syght, cease from doynge of euell. 17 Lerne to do ryght, applye your selues to equite, delyuer the oppressed, helpe the fatherles to his ryght, let the widowes complainte come before you. 18 Come I praye ye (sayeth the Lorde) let vs reason oure matter together. Though youre sinnes be as read as scarlet, thei shalbe as white as snowe. And though they were lyke purple, they shalbe as whit as wolle. 19 If ye be louynge & obedient, ye shal enioye the best thyng that groweth in the land. 20 But yf ye be obstinate & rebellyous, ye shalbe deuoured wt the swerde: for thus the Lorde hath promised wt his awne mouth. 21 How happepeneth it then that the ryghteous cytie (which was full of equite) is become vnfaythfull as an whore? ryghtuousnes dwelt in it, but now murtherers. 22 Thy syluer is turned to drosse, & thy wyne myxte with water. 23 Thy prices are wicked & companyons of theues. They loue gyftes altogether, and gape for rewardes. As for the fatherles, they helpe him not to his ryght, nether wyll they lett the wydowes causes come before them. 24 Therfore, sayeth the lorde God of Hostes, the myghty gouerner of Israel, Oute vpon ye, I wyll ease me of myne enemyes, & I will auenge me of myne aduersaryes, 25 I shall laye my hand vpon the, & burne out thy drosse from the fynest & purest, & put out all thy tynne, 26 & set thy iudges agayne as they were somtyme & thy Senatours as they were from the beginynge. Then shalt thou be called the ryghteous cytie, the faythfull cytie. 27 Sion shalbe redemed wt equite, & they shal turne againe vnto her in ryghteousnesse. 28 For the transgressours & vngodly, and soch as are be come vnfaythfull vnto the Lord, must altogether be vtterly destroyed. 29 For they shall be ashamed of the goddes that you longed for. And ye shall be put to shame for the Idols grouegardens that ye haue chosen: 30 ye shalbe as a tree whose leaues are fallen awaye, & as a garden that hath no moystnesse. 31 And as for the glory of your graued Images, it shalbe turned to drye 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 among wolues. Be ye therfore wyse as serpentes and innocent as doues.

Malachi 3:1-18

1 Beholde, I will sende my messaunger, whiche shall 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, saieth the Lorde of hostes. 2 But who may abyde the daye of his commyng? Who shalbe able to endure, when he appeareth? For he is like a goldsmythes fyre, ad lyke wasshers sope. 3 He shal syt him downe to trye and to clense the syluer, he shall pourge the chyldren of Leui, and purifye them lyke as golde and syluer: that they maye bringe meatofferinges vnto the Lorde in righteousnes. 4 Then shall the offeryng of Iuda and Ierusalem be acceptable vnto the Lorde, lyke as from the begynnynge and in the yeares, a fore tyme. 5 I wyll come and punyshe you, and I my selfe wyl be a swyfte wytnes agaynst the witches, agaynste the aduouterers, agaynst false swearers: yee, & agaynst those that wrongeously kepe back the hyrelynges dewty: which vexe the wyddowes and the fatherlesse, and oppresse the straunger, and feare not me, saieth the Lorde of hostes. 6 For I am the Lorde that chaunge not, & ye (O chyldren of Iacob) wyll not leaue of 7 ye are gone awaye fro myne ordinaunces, and sens the tyme of your forfathers haue ye not kepte them. Turne you now vnto me, and I wyll turne me vnto you, sayeth the Lorde of hostes: ye saye, wherin shal we turne? 8 Shulde a man vse falshed and disceat with God as ye vse falshed and disceate with me? yet ye saye wherin vse we disceate wt the? In Tithes & heaue offeringes. 9 Therfore are ye cursed wyth penury, because ye dissemble with me, all the sorte of you. 10 Bringe euery Tithe into my barne, that there maye be meat in myne house: and proue me withall (sayeth the Lorde of hoostes) yf I wyll not open the wyndowes of heauen vnto you, and poure you out a blessyng with plenteousnesse. 11 Yee, I shall reproue the consumer for your sakes, so that he shall not eate vp the frute of youre grounde, nether shall the vynyarde be baren in the felde, sayeth the Lorde of hostes: 12 In so moch that all people shall saye, that ye be blessed, for ye shall be a pleasaunt lande, sayeth the Lorde of hostes. 13 Ye speake harde wordes agaynst me, sayeth the Lorde. And yet ye saye: What haue we spoken agaynst the? 14 Ye haue sayde: It is but lost labour, to serue God? What profyt haue we for kepynge his commaundementes, and for walkynge humbly before the Lorde of hostes? 15 Therfore maye we saye, that the proude are happie, & that they which deale with vngodlynesse, are sett vp: for they tempte God, and yet escape. 16 But they that feare God, saye thus one to another: the Lorde consydereth and heareth it. Yee, it is before him a memoryal boke, wrytten for soch as feare the Lorde, and remembre his name. 17 And in the daye that I wyll make (sayth the Lorde of hostes) they shalbe myne awne possession: and I will fauoure them, lyke as a man fauoureth hys awne sonne, that doth hym seruyce. 18 Turne you therfore, and consydre what dyfference is betwyxte the righteous and vngodly, betwixte him that serueth God, and him that serueth hym not.

Matthew 8:1-4

1 When he was come downe from the mountayne, moch people folowed hym. 2 And beholde, there came a leper, and worshypped him sayeng: Mayster, yf thou wylt, thou canst make me cleane. 3 And Iesus put forth hys hande, and touched him sayenge: I will, be thou cleane, and immediatly hys leprosye was clensed. 4 And Iesus sayeth vnto hym: se thou tell no man but go, & shewe thy selfe to the preste: and offre the gyfte (that Moses commaunded to be offred) for a witnes vnto them.

Luke 9:57-10:16

57 And it chaunsed that as they were walking in the waye, a certayne man sayd vnto him. I wyll folowe the whithersoeuer thou goo. 58 Iesus sayde vnto him: foxes haue holes, and byrdes of the ayer haue nestes: but the sonne of man hath not where to laye his head. 59 And he sayde vnto another: folowe me. And the same sayde: Lorde, suffre me first to go and bury my father. 60 Iesus sayde vnto him: Let the deed bury their deed: but go thou, and preach the kyngdome of God. 61 And an other sayde: Lorde, I wyll folowe the: but let me first go byd them fare well, which are at home at my house. 62 Iesus sayde vnto hym: No man that putteth hys handes to the plowe, and loketh backe, is apte to the kyngdome of God.

Luke 10:1-16

1 After these thynges, the Lorde appoynted other .lxx. also, and sent them two and two before hym into euery cytie & place, whyther he him selfe wolde come. 2 Therfore sayd he vnto them: the haruest is great, but the labourers are fewe. Praye ye therfore the lord of the haruest, to sende forth labourers into his haruest. 3 Go your wayes: behold, I sende you forth as lambes among wolues. 4 Beare no wallet, nether scryp, nor shoes, & salute no man by the waye. 5 Into whatsoeuer house ye enter, fyrst saye: Peace be to thys house. 6 And yf the sonne of peace be there, your peace shall rest vpon him: yf not, it shall turne to you agayne. 7 And in the same house tary styll, eatyng and drinckyng soch as they geue: For the labourer is worthy of hys rewarde. Go not from house to house, 8 & into whatsoeuer cytie ye entre, & they receaue you, eate soch thynges as are set before you, 9 and heale the sicke that are therin, and saye vnto them: the kingdome of God is come nye vpon yo 10 But into whatsoeuer citie ye enter, & they receaue you not, go your wayes out into the stretes of the same, & saye: 11 euen the very dust of youre cytie (which cleaueth on vs) do we wype of agaynst you: Not withstanding, be ye sure of thys, that the kyngdome of God was come nye vpon you. 12 I saye vnto you: that it shalbe easier in that daye for Zodome, then for that cytie. 13 Wo vnto the Chorazin: wo vnto the Bethsaida. For yf the miracles had bene done in Tyre and Sidon, which haue bene done in you, they had (a greate whyle ago) repented of theyr synnes, syttyng in heercloth and asshes. 14 Neuerthelesse, it shalbe easier for Tyre and Sidon, at the iudgement, then for you. 15 And thou Capernaum (which art exalted to heauen) shalt be thrust downe to hell. 16 He that heareth you, heareth me: and he that despyseth you, despyseth me: and he that despyseth me; despyseth him that sent me.

Philippians 2:1-13

1 If ther be therfore eny consolacyon in Christ, yf ther be eny comforte of loue, yf ther by eny fellishyppe of the sprete, yf ther be eny compassion and mercy: 2 full fyll ye my ioye, that ye be lyke mynded, hauinge one loue, beynge of one accorde, and of one mynde, 3 that nothinge be done thorowe stryfe or of vayne glory, but in mekenes of mynde, let euery man esteme another better then hym selfe. 4 Loke not ye euery man on hys awne thinges, but euery man on the thinges that are other mens. 5 Let the same mynde be in you, that was also in Christ Iesu: 6 which whan he was in the shape of God, thought it no robbery to be equall with God 7 Neuerthelesse he made hym selfe of no reputacion, takynge on hym the shape of a seruaunte, and became lyke vnto men, 8 and was founde in his apparell as a man. He humbled him selfe, and became obedient vnto the deeth, euen the deeth of the crosse. 9 Wherfore, God also hath exalted him on hye, and geuen him a name which is aboue all names: 10 that in the name of Iesus euery knee shulde bowe, both of thinges in heauen and thynges in erth and thynges vnder the erth, 11 and that all tonges shulde confesse, that Iesus Christ is the Lorde, vnto the prayse of God the father. 12 Wherfore (my dearly beloued) as ye haue alwayes obeyed, not when I was present onely, but nowe moche more in myne absence, euen so worcke out youre awne saluacion with feare and tremblyng. 13 For it is God, which worketh in you, both the wyll and also the dede, euen of good wyll.

Ephesians 6:7-8

7 with good wyll, seruynge the Lorde, and not men. 8 Knowynge thys, that whatsoeuer good thynge eny man doeth, the same shall he receaue agayne of God, whether he be bonde or fre.

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.

1 Peter 1:10-16

10 Of whych saluacyon haue the Prophetes enquyred and searched, whych prophesyed of the grace that shuld come vnto you, 11 searchyng when or at what tyme the sprete of Chryst (whych was in them) shuld sygnifye, whych sprete testifyed before, the passyons that shuld happen vnto Chryst, & the glory that shulde folowe after, 12 vnto whych Prophetes it was also declared, that not vnto them selues, but vnto vs, they shulde minyster the thynges whych are now shewed vnto you of them, whych (by the holy goost sent downe from heauen) haue in the Gospell preached vnto you the thynges, whych the angels desyre to beholde. 13 Wherfore gyrde vp the loynes of youre mynde, be sober, & trust perfectly on the grace that is brought vnto you (by the declaryng of Iesus Chryst) 14 as obedient chyldren, that ye geue not youre selues ouer vnto youre olde lustes, 15 by whych ye were led, whan as yet ye were ignoraunt of Christ: but as he which called you, is holy, euen so be ye holy also in all maner of conuersacyon, 16 because it is written. Be holy, for I am holy.

Proverbs 14:21

21 Whoso despyseth his neyghbour doth a misse: but blessed is he the hath pytie of the poore.

Matthew 8:5-13

5 And when Iesus was entred into Capernaum, ther came vnto him a Centurion, and besought him, 6 sayenge: Master, my seruaunt lyeth at home sycke of the palsye, and is greuously payned. 7 And Iesus saith whan I come vnto hym, I wyll heale hym. 8 The Centurion answered, & sayd: Syr, I am not worthy, that thou shuldest come vnder my rofe: but speake the word only, and my seruaunt shalbe healed. 9 For I also my self am a man subiect to the aucthoryte of another, and haue soudyers vnder me, and I saye to thys man: go, & he goeth: and to another come, and he cometh, & to my seruaunt do this, and he doeth it. 10 When Iesus herd these wordes, he marueled: and sayde to them that folowed him. Uerely, I saye vnto you: I haue not founde so greate fayth in Israell. 11 I saye vnto you that many shall come from the east, and west, and shall rest with Abraham and Isaac and Iacob in the kyngdome of heauen: 12 but the children of the kyngdome shalbe cast out into vtter darcknes: there shalbe weping and gnasshing of teth. 13 And Iesus sayde vnto the Centurion: go thy waye, and as thou beleuest, so be it vnto the. And hys seruaunt was healed in the selfe same houre:

John 7:1-24

1 After these thinges, Iesus went about in Galile: for he wolde not go aboute in Iewry because that the Iewes sought to kyll hym. 2 The Iewes feast of tabernacles was at hande. 3 Hys brethren therfore sayde vnto him: get the hence, and go into Iewry, that thy disciples also maye se thy worckes that thou doest. 4 For ther is no man that doeth eny thynge in secret, and he hym selfe seketh to be knowne openlye. If thou do soch thinges, shewe thy selfe to the world. 5 For his brethren beleued not in him. 6 Then Iesus sayde vnto them: My tyme is not yet come: but youre tyme is all waye ready. 7 The worlde cannot hate you. But me it hateth: because I testify of it, that the workes therof are euill. 8 Go ye vp vnto this feast, I will not go vp yet vnto this feast, for my tyme is not yet full come. 9 whan he had sayde these wordes vnto them he abode styll in Galile. 10 But as sone as his brethren were come, then went he also vp vnto the feast not openly: but as it were preuely. 11 Then sought him the Iewes at the feast, & sayde: where is he? 12 And moch murmuringe was ther of him amonge the people. For some sayde: He is good, other sayde naye, but he deceaueth the people. 13 How be it no man spake openly of him, for feare of the Iewes. 14 Now whan halfe of the feast was done, Iesus went vp into the temple, and taught. 15 And the Iewes marueyled, saying: How knoweth he the scriptures, seynge that he neuer learned? 16 Iesus answered them, & sayde: My doctryne hys not myne: but his that sent me. 17 If eny man wyll be obedient vnto his wyll, he shall knowe of the doctrine, whether it be of God, or whether I speake of my selfe. 18 He that speaketh of him selfe, seketh his awne prayse. But he that seketh hys prayse that sent him, the same is true, & no vnryghtewesnes is in him. 19 Dyd not Moses geue you a lawe, & yet none of you kepeth the lawe? Why go ye about to kyll me? 20 The people answered and sayde: thou hast the deuyll: who goeth aboute to kyll the? 21 Iesus answered, and sayde vnto them: I haue done one worcke, and ye all maruayle. 22 Moses therfore gaue vnto you the circuncisyon: not because it is of Moses, but of the fathers: And yet ye on the Saboth daye, circuncyse a man. 23 If a man on the Saboth daye receaue circumcysion without breakynge of the lawe of Moses: disdayne ye at me, because I haue made a man euery whit whoale on the Saboth daye? 24 Iudge not after the vtter aperaunce, but iudge with a ryghtewes iudgement.

Romans 12:1

1 I beseche you therfore brethren, by the mercyfulnes of God, that ye make yor bodies a quycke sacryfice, holy & acceptable vnto God: which is youre resonable seruynge of God

Philippians 2:2

2 full fyll ye my ioye, that ye be lyke mynded, hauinge one loue, beynge of one accorde, and of one mynde,

2 Thessalonians 3:8

8 Nether toke we breed of eny man for naught: but wrought wt laboure & sweate nyght & daye, because we wolde not be chargeable to eny of you:

Ephesians 4:11-14

11 And the very same made some Apostles, some Prophetes, some Euangelistes, some Shepherdes and Teachers: 12 to the edifyenge of the saynctes, to the worke and ministracyon, euen to the edifyinge of the body of Chryst, 13 tyll we all come to the vnitye of fayth, and knowledge of the sonne of God, vnto a perfecte man, vnto the measure of the full perfecte age of Chryst 14 That we hence forth shulde be nomore chyldren, wauerynge & caryed aboute with euery wynde of doctrine, by the wylynes of men, thorowe craftynes, wherby they laye a wayte for vs to deceaue vs.

Hebrews 6:10-12

10 For God is not vnryghteous that he shulde forget youre worke and laboure that procedeth of loue, which loue ye shewe in his name, which haue ministred vnto the saynctes, and yet minister. 11 Yee, and we desyre, that euery one of you shewe the same diligence, to the full stablishinge of hope, euen vnto the ende, 12 that ye faynt not, but be folowers of them, which thorowe fayth and pacience receaue the enheritaunce of the promyse.

1 Peter 4:1-19

1 For as moch then as Christ hath suffred for vs in the flesshe, arme ye youre selues lykewyse with the same mynde: for he whych suffereth in the flesshe, ceaseth from synn 2 that he hence forwarde shulde lyue (as moch tyme as remayneth in the flesshe) not after the lustes of men, but after the wyll of God. 3 For it is sufficyent for vs, that we haue spent the tyme that is past of the lyfe, after the wyll of the Gentyls, walkynge in wantannes, lustes, in excesse of wynes, in excesse of eatynge, in excesse of drinkynge and in abomynable ydolatrie. 4 And it semeth to them an inconuenient thynge, that ye runne not also with them vnto the same excesse of ryote, & therfore speake they euyll of you, 5 whych shall geue acomptes to him, that is ready to iudge quicke and deed. 6 For vnto thys purpose verely was the Gospell preached also vnto the deed, that they shuld be iudged lyke other men in the flesshe, but shuld lyue before God in the sprete. 7 The ende of al thinges is at hande. Be ye therfore sober, and watch vnto prayer. 8 But aboue all thynges haue feruent loue among your selues. For loue shall couer the multitude of synnes. 9 Be ye herberous one to another, wythout grudgynge. 10 As euery man hath receaued the gyfte, euen so mynister the same one to another, as good mynisters of the manyfolde grace of God. 11 If eny man speake, let him talke as the wordes of God. If eny man mynister, let him do it as of the abylite, whych God mynystreth vnto hym. That God in all thynges maye be glorifyed thorow Iesus Christ, to whom be prayse and dominion for euer and euer. Amen. 12 Dearly beloued, maruayll not that ye are proued by fyre (whych thyng is to trye you) as though some straunge thing happened vnto you: 13 but reioyce, in as moch as ye are partakers of Christes passyons: that when hys glory appeareth, ye maye be mery and glad. 14 If ye be rayled vpon for the name of Christ, happie are ye. For the glory and the sprete of God resteth vpon you. On their parte he is euyll spoken of: but on youre parte he is glorifyed. 15 Se that none of you be punysshed as a murtherer, or as a thefe, or an euyll doar, or as a busybody in other mens matters. 16 If eny man suffre as a Christen man, let him not be ashamed: but let him glorifye God on this behalfe. 17 For the tyme is come, that iudgement must begynne at the house of God. If it fyrst begynne at vs, what shall the ende be of them, whych beleue not the Gospell of God? 18 And yf the ryghteous scarcely be saued: where shall the vngodly and the synner appeare? 19 Wherfore, let them that are troubled accordyng to the wyll of God, commyt their soules to him with well doynge, as vnto a faythfull creator.

1 John 3:17-18

17 But whoso hath thys worldes good and seyth hys brother haue neade: and shutteth vp his compassion from him: how dwelleth the loue of God in hym? 18 My babes, let vs not loue in worde, nether in tonge: but in dede & in veritie.

Mark 10:42-45

42 But Iesus whan he had called them to hym, sayd vnto them: ye knowe, that they whych are sene to beare rule amonge the people, raygne as Lordes ouer them. 43 And they that be greate amonge them, exercyse auctoryte vpon them. Neuertheles, so shall it not be amonge you: but whosoeuer of you wylbe greate amonge you, shalbe youre mynister. 44 And whosoeuer wylbe chefe, shalbe seruaunt of all. 45 For the sonne of man also came not to be mynystred vnto: but to mynister, and to geue hys lyfe for the redempcyon of many.

Galatians 5:13-15

13 Brethren, ye were called into libertye: only let not youre libertye be an occasion vnto the flesshe: but by loue serue one another. 14 For all the lawe is fulfylled in one worde, which is this: thou shalt loue thyne neyghboure as thy selfe. 15 If ye byte and deuoure one another: take hede, lest ye be lykewyse consumed one of another.

1 As he behelde, he sawe the ryche men, whych cast in their offeringes into the treasury. 2 He sawe also a certyane poore wyddowe, whych cast in thyther two mytes. 3 And he sayde: of a trueth I saye vnto you, that thys poore wyddow hath put in moare then they all. 4 For they all haue of theyr superfluyte added vnto the offerynges of God: but she, of her penury hath cast in all the substaunce that she had.

John 13:4-5

4 he rose from supper, and layde asyde his vpper garmentes: and whan he had taken a towell, he gyrded him self. 5 After that, he powred water into a basyn, and beganne to wash the disciples fete, and to wype them with the towell, wherwith he was gyrded.

John 13:1-13

1 Before the feaste of Easter, when Iesus knewe that hys houre was come, that he shuld depart out of this world vnto the father. When he loued his which were in the worlde, vnto the ende he loued them. 2 And when supper was ended, after that the deuyll had put in the herte of Iudas Iscarioth Simons sonne, to be traye hym. 3 Iesus knowynge that the father had geuen all thinges into hys handes, and that he was come from God, and went to God: 4 he rose from supper, and layde asyde his vpper garmentes: and whan he had taken a towell, he gyrded him self. 5 After that, he powred water into a basyn, and beganne to wash the disciples fete, and to wype them with the towell, wherwith he was gyrded. 6 Then came he to Symon Peter. And Peter sayde vnto hym: Lord, dost thou wasshe my fete? 7 Iesus answered, and sayd vnto him: what I do, thou wotest not nowe, but thou shalt know herafter. 8 Peter sayeth vnto him: thou shalt neuer wasshe my fete. Iesus answered hym: yf I wasshe the not, thou hast no parte with me. 9 Symon Peter sayeth vnto hym: Lorde, not my fete onely, but also the handes and the head. 10 Iesus sayth to hym: he that is wasshed, nedeth not, saue to wasshe his fete, but is cleane euery whyt. And ye are cleane, but not all. 11 For he knewe who it was that shuld be traye hym. Therfore sayd he: ye are not all cleane: 12 So after he had wasshed their fete, and receaued hys clothes, and was sett downe, he sayde vnto them agayne: wote ye what I haue done to you? 13 Ye call me master and Lorde, and ye saye well, for so am I.

Romans 12:6-7

6 Seynge that we haue diuers gyftes accordynge to the grace that is geuen vnto vs: yf eny man haue the gyft of prophesye, let him haue it that it be agreyng vnto the fayth. 7 Let hym that hath an office wayte on his office. Let him that teacheth take hede to hys doctryne.

Luke 22:25-27

25 And he sayde vnto them: the kynges of nacyons raygne ouer them: and they that haue auctoryte vpon them, are called gracious lordes. 26 But ye shall not be so.

Is not he that sytteth at meate? But I am amonge you, as he that mynistreth.

10 For we are his worckmanshyppe, created in Chryst Iesu vnto good workes, whiche God ordeyned, that we shulde walke in them.

Philippians 2:1-4:23

1 If ther be therfore eny consolacyon in Christ, yf ther be eny comforte of loue, yf ther by eny fellishyppe of the sprete, yf ther be eny compassion and mercy: 2 full fyll ye my ioye, that ye be lyke mynded, hauinge one loue, beynge of one accorde, and of one mynde, 3 that nothinge be done thorowe stryfe or of vayne glory, but in mekenes of mynde, let euery man esteme another better then hym selfe. 4 Loke not ye euery man on hys awne thinges, but euery man on the thinges that are other mens. 5 Let the same mynde be in you, that was also in Christ Iesu: 6 which whan he was in the shape of God, thought it no robbery to be equall with God 7 Neuerthelesse he made hym selfe of no reputacion, takynge on hym the shape of a seruaunte, and became lyke vnto men, 8 and was founde in his apparell as a man. He humbled him selfe, and became obedient vnto the deeth, euen the deeth of the crosse. 9 Wherfore, God also hath exalted him on hye, and geuen him a name which is aboue all names: 10 that in the name of Iesus euery knee shulde bowe, both of thinges in heauen and thynges in erth and thynges vnder the erth, 11 and that all tonges shulde confesse, that Iesus Christ is the Lorde, vnto the prayse of God the father. 12 Wherfore (my dearly beloued) as ye haue alwayes obeyed, not when I was present onely, but nowe moche more in myne absence, euen so worcke out youre awne saluacion with feare and tremblyng. 13 For it is God, which worketh in you, both the wyll and also the dede, euen of good wyll. 14 Do all thynge with out murmuringe, & dysputynge, 15 that ye maye be soche as no man came complayne on: and vnfayned sonnes of God without rebuke, in the myddes of a croked and peruerse nacyon: amonge whom se that ye shyne as lyghtes in the worlde, 16 holdynge faste the worde of lyfe, that I maye reioyce in the daye of Chryst, howe that I haue not runne in vayne, nether haue laboured in vayne. 17 Yee and though I be offered vp vpon the offeringe & sacrifyce of youre fayth: I reioyce and reioyce with you all. 18 For the same cause also do ye reioyce, and reioyce with me. 19 I trust in the Lorde Iesus, for to sende Timotheus shortly vnto you, that I also maye be of good comforte, when I knowe what case ye stande in. 20 For I haue no man that is so lyke mynded to me, which with so pure affeccyon wyll care for youre matters. 21 For all other seke theyr awne, and not the thynges which are Iesus Christes. 22 ye knowe the proffe of hym, howe that as a sonne with the father, so hath he with me bestowed hys seruice in the Gospell. 23 Hym therfore I hope to sende, assone as I knowe howe it wyll go with me. 24 I trust in the Lord, that I also my selfe shall come shortly. 25 But I supposed it necessary to sende brother Epaphroditus vnto you, my companion in laboure and felowe souldier, youre Apostell, which also ministreth vnto me at nede. 26 For he longed after you all, and was full of heuynes, because that ye had hearde saye, that he had bene sycke. 27 And no doute he was sicke, in somoch that he was nye vnto deeth. But God had mercy on him: and not on him onely, but on me also, lest I shulde haue sorowe vpon sorowe. 28 I sent hym therfore the more diligently: that when ye se hym, ye maye reioyce agayne, and that I maye be the lesse sorowfull. 29 Receaue him therfore in the Lorde with all gladnes, and make moche of soche: 30 because that for the worke of Chryst he went so farre, that he was nye vnto deeth, and regarded not hys lyfe: to fullfyll that, which was lackynge on youre parte to warde me.

Philippians 3:1-4:23

1 Moreouer, (brethren) reioyce ye in the Lorde. It greueth me not to wryte one thynge often to you. For to you it is a sure thynge. 2 Beware of dogges, beware of euyll workers. Beware of dissensyon. 3 For we are circumcisyon, which serue God in the sprete, and reioyce in Chryst Iesu, and haue no confydence in the flesshe: 4 though I myght also reioyce in the flesshe. If eny other man thynketh that he hath wherof he might trust in the flesshe: I haue more: 5 beynge circumcysed the eyght daye, of the kynred of Israel, of the trybe of Beniamin an Ebrue borne of the Ebrues as concernynge the lawe, a Pharisaye: 6 as concernynge feruentnes, I persecuted the congregacyon, as touchynge the ryghtewesnes which is in the lawe, I was vnrebukable. 7 But the thynges that were vauntage vnto me, those I counted losse for Chrystes sake. 8 ye I thynke all thynges but losse for the excellencye of the knowledge of Chryst Iesu my Lorde. For whom I haue counted all thynge losse, and do iudge them but vyle, that I maye wynne Chryst, 9 and be founde in him not hauynge myne awne ryghtewesnes of the lawe: but that which is thorow the fayth of Chryst: euen the ryghtewesnes which commeth of God thorowe fayth: 10 that I maye knowe hym and the vertue of hys resurrecyon, and the fellowshyppe of hys passyons, whyle I am conformable vnto hys (deeth) 11 yf by eny meanes I myght attayne vnto the resurreccyon of the deed. 12 Not that I haue attayned vnto it all ready, or that I am all ready perfecte: but I folowe, yf that I maye comprehende that, wherin I am comprehended of Chryst Iesu. 13 Brethren, I counte not my selfe that I haue gotten it as yet, but this one thynge I saye: I forget those thinges which are behinde, & endeuoure my selfe vnto those thinges which are before, 14 and (accordinge to the marke apoynted) I preace to the rewarde of the hye callynge of God thorowe Chryst Iesu. 15 Let vs therfore as many as be perfect, be thus wyse mynded, and yf ye be other wyse mynded, God shall open the same also vnto you. 16 Neuerthelesse vnto that which we haue attayned vnto, lett vs proceade by one rule, that we maye be of one accorde. 17 Brethren, be folowers together of me, and loke on them which walke euen so, as ye haue vs for an ensample. 18 For many walke (of whom I haue tolde you often and nowe tell you wepynge) that they are the enemies of the crosse of Christ, 19 whose ende is damnacion, whose God is theyr belly and glory to theyr shame, which are worldely mynded. 20 But oure conuersacyon is in heauen, from whence we loke for the saueoure, euen the Lorde Iesus Chryst, 21 which shall chaunge oure vyle bodie, that he maye make it lyke vnto hys glorious body, accordynge to the workynge, wherby he is able also to subdue all thynges vnto him selfe.

Philippians 4:1-23

1 Therfore my brethren (dearly beloued and longed for) my ioye and crowne, so continue in the Lorde ye beloued. 2 I praye Euodias, and beseche Sintiches, that they be of one accorde in the Lord. 3 Yee and I beseche the faythfull yockefelowe, helpe the wemen which laboured with me in the Gospell, and with Clement also, and with other my laboure felowes whose names are in the boke of lyfe. 4 Reioyce in the Lord alwaye and agayne I saye reioyce. 5 Let youre softenes be knowen vnto all men: The Lorde is euen at hande. 6 Be carefull for nothynge: but in all prayer and supplicacyon let youre peticyons be manifeste vnto God with geuynge of thankes. 7 And the peace of God (which passeth all vnderstandynge) kepe youre hertes and myndes thorowe Christ Iesu. 8 Furthermore, brethren, whatsoeuer thinges are true, whatsoeuer thynges are honeste, whatsoeuer thinges are iust, whatsoeuer thynges are pure, whatsoeuer thynges are conuenient, whatsoeuer thinges are of honeste reporte: Yf ther be eny vertue, yf ther be eny prayse, 9 those same haue ye in youre mynde, which ye haue bothe learned & receaued, hearde also and sene in me those thinges do, and the God of peace shalbe with you. 10 I reioyce in the Lord greatly, that nowe at the last youre care is reuyued agayne for me in that wherin ye were also carefull, but ye lacked oportunite. 11 I speake not because of necessite. For I haue learned in whatsoeuer estate I am, therwith to be content. 12 I knowe howe to be lowe and I knowe howe to excede. Euery where and in all thinges I am instructed, both to be full and to be hongrye, both to haue plenty and to suffre nede. 13 I can do all thinges thorowe Christ which strengtheneth me. 14 Not withstandynge ye haue well done, that ye bare parte wt me in my tribulacion. 15 Ye of Philippos knowe also that in the begynnynge of the Gospell, when I departed from Macedonia, no congregacyon bare parte with me, as concernynge geuynge & receauinge, but ye onely. 16 For when I was in Thessalonica, ye sent once and afterward agayne vnto my necessite: 17 not that I desire gyftes: but I desyre aboundant frute on youre parte. 18 Neuertheles I receaued all, and haue plentie. I was euen fylled after that I receaued of Epaphroditus the thinges, which were sent from you, an odoure of a swete smell a sacrifyce accepted and pleasaunt to God. 19 My God shall supplye all youre nede thorow his gloryous riches by Iesu Christ. 20 Unto God & oure father be prayse for euermore. Amen. 21 Salute all the saynctes in Christ Iesu. The brethren which are with me, greate you. 22 All the saynctes salute you, most of all they which are of the emperours housholde. 23 The grace of oure Lord Iesu Christ be with you all. Amen.

Romans 12:9-13

9 Let loue be without dissimulacion Hate that which is euyll & cleaue vnto that which is good. 10 Be kynd one to another wich brotherly loue. In geuynge honoure, go one before another. 11 Be not slouthfull in the busynes which ye haue in hande. Be feruent in the sprete. Applye youre selues to the tyme. 12 Reioyce in hope. Be pacient in tribulacion. Continue in prayer. 13 Distribute vnto the necessite of the sayntes: be readie to harboure.

Galatians 6:9

9 Let vs not be wery of well doinge. For when the tyme is come, we shall reape without werynesse.

2 Chronicles 15:7

7 Playe ye therfore the men, and let not youre handes slacke, for youre worke shalbe rewarded.

Luke 6:27-45

27 But I saye vnto you which heare. Loue youre enemyes. Do good to them which hate you. 28 Besse them that curse you. And praye for them which wrongfullye trouble you. 29 And vnto hym that smyteth the on the one cheke, offer also the other. And him that taketh awaye thy gowne, forbyd not to take thy cote also. 30 Geue to euery man that asketh of the. And of him that taketh a waye thy goodes, aske them not agayne. 31 And as ye wolde that men shuld do to you, do ye also to them lykewyse. 32 And yf ye loue them which loue you, what thanke haue ye? For synners also loue theyr louers. 33 And yf ye do good for them which do good for you, what thanke haue ye? For synners also do euen the same. 34 And yf ye lende to them of whom ye hope to receaue: what thanke haue ye? for synners also lende to synners, to receaue soch lyke agayne. 35 But loue ye youre enemyes, and do good, and lende, lokynge for nothynge agayne: and your reward shalbe greate, and ye shalbe the chyldren of the hyest: for he is kynde vnto the vnkynde and to the euyll. 36 Be ye therfore mercyfull, as your father also is mercyfull. 37 Iudge not, and ye shall not be iudged: Condempne not, and ye shall not be condempned. Forgeue, and ye shalbe forgeuen. 38 Geue, and it shalbe geuen vnto you: good measure and pressed downe, and shaken together and runnyng ouer, shall men geue into youre bosomes. For with the same measure that ye mete withall, shall other men mete to you agayne. 39 And he put forth a similitude vnto them Can the blynde leade the blynde? Do they not both fall into the dyche? 40 The disciple is not aboue his master. Euery man shalbe perfecte, euen as hys master is. 41 Why seest thou a moate in thy brothers eye, but consyderest not the beame that is in thyne awne eye? 42 Ether howe cannest thou saye to thy brother. Brother, let me pull out the moate that is in thyne eye, when thou seest not the beame that is in thyne awne eye. Thou ypocrite cast out the beame out of thyne awne eye fyrst, & then shalt thou se perfectly, to pull oute the moate that is in thy brothers eye. 43 For it is not a good tree, that bringeth forth euyll frute: nether is that an euyll tree, that bringeth forth good frute. 44 For euery tre is knowen by hys frute. For of thornes do not men gather fygges, nor of busshes gather they grapes. 45 A good man out of the good treasure of hys herte, bryngeth forth that which is good. And an euyll man, out of the euyll treasure of his hert, bringeth forth that which is euyll. For of the aboundance of the hert, hys mouth speaketh.

19 For though I be fre from all men, yet haue I made my selfe seruaunt vnto all men, that I myght wynne the moo.

James 2:14-17

14 What auayleth it my brethren, though a man saye he hath fayth, yf he haue no dedes? Can fayth saue hi 15 If a brother or a syster be naked & destitute of dayly fode, 16 & one of you saye vnto them: departe in peace, God send you warmnes & fode, not wtstandyng ye geue them not those thinges which are nedful to the body, what shal it helpe? 17 Euen so fayth, yf it haue no dedes: is deed in it selfe:

I was in preson, and ye came vnto me. 37 Then shall the righteous answere him saying: Lord, when sawe we the an hongred, and fedd the? or thirstye, & gaue the drinke? 38 when sawe we the herborlesse, & tooke the in? or naked, and clothed the? 39 or when sawe we the sycke, or in preson, and came vnto the? 40 And the kyng shall answere, and saye vnto them: veryly I saye vnto you: in as moch as ye haue done it vnto one of the leest of these my brethren, ye haue done it to me.

Philippians 2:1-11

1 If ther be therfore eny consolacyon in Christ, yf ther be eny comforte of loue, yf ther by eny fellishyppe of the sprete, yf ther be eny compassion and mercy: 2 full fyll ye my ioye, that ye be lyke mynded, hauinge one loue, beynge of one accorde, and of one mynde, 3 that nothinge be done thorowe stryfe or of vayne glory, but in mekenes of mynde, let euery man esteme another better then hym selfe. 4 Loke not ye euery man on hys awne thinges, but euery man on the thinges that are other mens. 5 Let the same mynde be in you, that was also in Christ Iesu: 6 which whan he was in the shape of God, thought it no robbery to be equall with God 7 Neuerthelesse he made hym selfe of no reputacion, takynge on hym the shape of a seruaunte, and became lyke vnto men, 8 and was founde in his apparell as a man. He humbled him selfe, and became obedient vnto the deeth, euen the deeth of the crosse. 9 Wherfore, God also hath exalted him on hye, and geuen him a name which is aboue all names: 10 that in the name of Iesus euery knee shulde bowe, both of thinges in heauen and thynges in erth and thynges vnder the erth, 11 and that all tonges shulde confesse, that Iesus Christ is the Lorde, vnto the prayse of God the father.
