5 But in any wyse take exceding good heade, that ye do the commaundement & law whych Moses the seruaunt of the Lord charged you: whyche is, that ye loue the Lorde youre God, and walke in hys wayes & kepe his commaundementes, and cleaue vnto him, and seaue hym wyth all youre hertes, and all youre soules.
Bible verses about "serving others" | Matthew
1 The prophecye of Esai the sonne of Amos, whiche he shewed vpon Iuda & Ierusalem: In the tyme of Oziah, Ioatham, Ahaz, and Iehezekiah Kynges of Iuda. 2 Heare O heauen, herken O earth, for the Lord speaketh: I haue norysshed & brought vp chyldren, and they are fallen awaye from me. 3 An oxe knoweth hys Lorde, & an Asse his masters stall: but Israel knoweth nothynge, my people hath no vnderstanding. 4 Alas for thys synfull people, whiche are ouerladen with blasphemyes, a frowarde generacyon, wicked chyldren. They haue forsaken the Lorde, they haue prouoked the holy one of Israell vnto anger, and are gone backwarde. 5 Wherfore shulde ye be plaged any more? For ye are euer fallyng away. The whole head is sick, & the herte is very heauy. 6 From the sole of the fote vnto the head, there is no whol parte in all youre bodye: but all are woundes, botches, sores, and stripes, whiche can nether be helped, bound vp, molifyed, nor eased with any oyntment. 7 Youre lande lyeth waste, youre cyties are brent vp, youre enemyes deuoure your lande, and ye muste be fayne to stand, and loke vpon it: and it is desolate, as it were wyth enemyes in a battell. 8 Moreouer the doughter of Syon is lefte alone lyke a cotage in a vyneyard like a watche house in tyme of warre, lyke a beseged cytye. 9 And excepte the Lord of hostes had lefte vs a fewe alyue: we shulde haue ben as Sodoma, and lyke vnto Gomorra. 10 Heare the worde of the Lorde ye tyrauntes of Sodoma, and herken vnto the lawe of oure God, thou people of Gomorra. 11 Why offre ye so manye sacrifyces vnto me? I am discontent for the brentofferinges of wethers and with the fatnesse of fedbeastes. I haue no pleasure in the bloude of bullockes, lambes & gootes. 12 When ye appeare before me, who requyreth you to treade wythin my porches? 13 Offre me no mo oblacions, for it is but loste laboure. I abhorre youre incense. I maye not awaye with youre new moones, youre Sabbathes and solempne dayes. Youre fastinges are also in vayne. 14 I hate youre newe holye dayes and fastynges, euen from my very hert. They make me weerye, I can not abyde them. 15 Though ye holde oute your handes, yet turne I myne eyes from you. And though ye make manye prayers, yet heare I nothynge at all, for youre handes are full of bloude. 16 Washe you, make you cleane, put awaye youre euill thoughtes out of my sighte, cease from doynge of euyll and vyolence. 17 Lerne to do right, applye youre selues to equite, delyuer the oppressed, helpe the fatherlesse to hys ryght, let the wyddowes complaynte come before you. 18 Nowe go to (sayth the Lorde) we will talke together. Is it not so? Thoughe youre synnes be as reade as scarlet, shal they not be whyther then snowe? And though they were lyke purple, shall they not be lyke white wolle? 19 Is it not so? If ye be louynge and obedyent, ye shall enioye the best thynge that groweth in the lande. 20 But yf ye be obstynate and rebellyous, ye shalbe deuoured wt the swerde: for thus the Lorde hath promysed wyth hys owne mouthe. 21 Howe happeneth it then that the ryghtuous cytye (whiche was full of equyte) is be come vnfaythful as an whore? ryghteousnes dwelt in it, but now murthur. 22 Thy syluer is turned to drosse, and thy wyne mixte wyth water. 23 Thy prynces are traytours and companyons of theues. They loue gyftes altogether, & folowe rewardes. As for the fatherles, they helpe hym not to hys ryght, nether wyll they let the wydowes causes come before them. 24 Therfore speaketh the Lorde God of hostes the myghtye one of Israel: Ah I muste ease me of myne enemyes, and avenge me vpon them. 25 And therfore shall I laye my hande vpon the and burne oute thy drosse from the fyneste and pureste, and put oute all the leade, 26 and set thy iudges agayne as they were some tyme, and thy Senatours as they were from the begynninge. Then shalte thou be called the ryghtuous cytie, the faithful citye. 27 But Syon shalbe redemed with equite, and her captyuyte with ryghteousnesse. 28 For the transgressours and vngodlye, and suche as are become vnfaythfull vnto the Lorde, muste altogether be vtterlye destroyed. 29 And except ye be ashamed of the oke trees wherein ye haue so delyted, and of the gardens that ye haue chosen: 30 ye shalbe as an oke whose leaues are fallen awaye, and as a garden that hath no moystnesse. 31 And as for the glorye of these thynges, it shalbe turned to drye straw, and he that made them to a sparke. And they shall both burne together, so that no man shalbe able to quenche them.
16 Beholde I sende you forth as shepe among wolues. Be ye therfore wyse as serpentes, and innocent as doues.
1 Beholde, I wil sende my messaunger, which shall prepare the way before me: & the Lord whome, ye woulde haue, shall sone come to hys temple, yea, euen the messenger of the couenaunt, whome ye longe for. Beholde he commeth, sayeth the Lord of hostes 2 But who may abyde the day of hys commyng? Who shalbe able to endure, when he appeareth? For he is lyke a goldsmythes fire and lyke a wasshers sope. 3 He shall syt hym doune to trye and to clense the syluer, he shall pourge the children of Leui, & puryfye them lyke as golde and syluer: that they may bring meatofferinges vnto the Lorde in righteousnes. 4 Then shal the offering of Iuda & Ierusalem be acceptable vnto the Lord, lyke as from the beginninge, and in the yeares, afore tyme. 5 I wil come and punish you, and I my selfe will be a swyf wytnes against the witches, agaynst the aduouterers, agaynste false swearers: yea, and agaynst those, that wrongeouslye kepe backe the hyrelinges dewtye: which vexe the widdowes and the fatherlesse and oppresse the straunger, and feare not me, sayeth the Lord of Hostes. 6 For I am the lord that chaunge not, and ye (O children of Iacob) wyll not leaue of: 7 ye are gone away from myne ordinaunces, and sens the time of your forefathers haue ye not kepte them. Turne you now vnto me, and I will turne me vnto you, sayeth the Lorde of hostes: ye saye: wherin shall we turne? 8 Shoulde a man vse falshede and disceyte with God as ye vse falshede and disceyte wyth me? Yet ye saye: wherin vse we disceyt wyth the? In Tithes & heaueofferinges. 9 Therfore are ye cursed with penury, because ye dissemble with me, all the sorte of you. 10 Bringe euerye Tithe into my barne, that there maye be meat in myne house: and proue me withall (sayeth the Lorde of hostes) yf I will not open the windowes of heauen vnto you, and poure you out a blessynge with plenteousnesse. 11 Yea, I shal reproue the consumer for youre sakes, so that he shall not eate vp the frute of youre grounde, neyther shall the vineyarde be baren in the felde, sayeth the Lord of hostes. 12 In so muche that all people shall saye, that ye be blessed, for ye shalbe 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 sayed. Is it but lost labour, to serue God? What profyt haue we for keping his commaundementes, and for walkinge humbly before the Lorde of Hostes? 15 Therfore maye we saye, that the proude are happye, and that they whiche deale with the vngodlynesse, are sette vp: for they tempte God, and yet escape. 16 But they that feare God, saye thus one to another: the Lord consydereth and heareth it. Yea, it is before him a memoriall boke, wryten for such as feare the Lorde, & remembre his name. 17 And in the day that I will make (sayeth the Lord of hostes) they shalbe mine own possession: and I wil fauoure them, lyke as a man fauoureth his owne sonne, that doth him seruyce. 18 Turne you therfore, and consydre what difference is betwyxt the ryghteous & vngodly: betwyxt him that serueth God, and him that serueth him not.
1 When he was come downe from the mountayne, much people folowed him. 2 And lo, there came a lepre & worshipped him saying Master, if thou wylt, thou canst make me cleane. 3 And Iesus put forthe his hand & touched him, saiyng: I will, be thou cleane, & immediatly his leprosye was clensed. 4 And Iesus sayde vnto hym. Se thou tell no man, but go and shewe thy selfe to the pryeste, and offer the gyft that Moyses commaunded in witnes to them.
57 And it chaunsed as he went in the waye a certayne man sayde vnto hym: I wyl folowe the, whyther soeuer thou go. 58 Iesus sayd vnto him: foxes haue holes, and byrddes of the ayre haue nestes, but the sonne of man hathe not wheron to laye hys heade. 59 And he sayed vnto another: folow me. And the same sayde: Lorde suffer me fyrste to go & burye my father, 60 Iesus sayde vnto him. Let the dead burye her dead: but go thou & preach the kyngedome of God. 61 And another sayed: I wyll folowe the Lord but let me fyrste go byd them fare wel, which are at home at my house. 62 Iesus sayed vnto hym. No man that putteth hys hande to the plough, and loketh backe, is apte to the kyngdome of God.
1 After these thynges, the Lord appoynted other seuentye also: and sent them, two & two before him into euery citie and place, whyther he hym selfe woulde come. 2 And he sayed vnto them, the haruest is great, but the laborers are fewe. Praye therfore the Lorde of the harueste, to sende forth laborers into hys haruest. 3 Go youre wayes: beholde, I sende you forth as lambes among wolues. 4 Beare no wallet neyther scryppe, nor shues, and salute no man by the way. 5 Into whatsoeuer house ye enter, fyrste saye: Peace be to thys house. 6 And yf the sonne of peace be there your peace shal reste vpon hym: yf not, it shal returne to you agayne. 7 And in the same house tary styll, eatynge and drinckynge suche as they haue. For the labourer is worthy of thys rewarde. Go not from house to house, 8 & into whatsoeuer citie ye enter, yf they receyue you, eate suche thynges as are set before you, 9 and heale the sycke that are there, and say vnto them: the kyngedome of God is come nye vnto you. 10 But into whatsoeuer citie ye shall enter, yf they receyue you not, go youre wayes out into the streates of the same and saye: 11 euen the very duste, whiche cleaueth on vs of your citie, we wype of agaynste you. Notwithstandynge marke this that the kyngdome of God was come nye vpon you. 12 Yea, and I saye to you, that it shalbe easier in that daye for Zodome then for that citie. 13 Wo be to the Chorazim, wo be to the Bethsaida. For yf the myracles had bene done in Tyre and Sidon, whiche haue bene done in you, they had a great whyle a gone repented, sittynge in hayre and ashes. 14 Neuerthelesse, it shalbe easyer for Tyre and Sidon at the iudgement, then for you. 15 And thou Capernaum, which arte exalted to heauen, shalt be thruste doune to hell. 16 He that heareth you, heareth me, and he that dispyseth you, despyseth me: & he that despyseth me, despiseth hym that sente me.
1 If there be amonge you anye consolation in Christ, yf there be anye comfortable loue, yf there be anye feloweshyp of spirite, yf there be any compassion or mercye, 2 fulfyll my ioye that ye drawe one waye hauinge one loue, being of one accorde, and of one minde, 3 that nothing be done thorowe stryfe or vaine glorye, but that in mekenes of mynde euerye man esteme other better then him selfe, 4 & that no man considere his owne, but what is meate for other. 5 Let the same mynde be in you that was in Christ Iesu: 6 Whiche beinge in the shap of God, and thought it not robbery to be equal wt God. 7 Neuerthelesse he made hym selfe of no reputation, & toke on him the shap of a seruaunt, and became lyke vnto men, 8 and was founde in hys aparell as a man. He humbled hym selfe, and became obediente vnto the death euen the death of the crosse. 9 Wherfore God hath exalted hym, and geuen hym a name aboue al names, 10 that in the name of Iesus should euerye knee bowe, both of thinges in heauen and thinges in earth, and thinges vnder the earth, 11 and that al tounges should confesse that Iesus Christ is the Lorde vnto the prayse of God the father. 12 Wherfore my dearlye beloued, as ye haue alwayes obeyed, not when I was presente onelye, but nowe much more in myne absence euen so worke out your owne saluacion wt feare and trembling. 13 For it is God, whyche worketh in you, both the wyll and also the dede, euen of good wyl.
1 Iames the seruaunte of God and of the Lorde Iesus Christ sendeth gretyng to the twelue trybes whiche are scattered here and there. 2 My brethren, count it excedyng ioye when ye fal into dyuers temptacyons, 3 for as muche as ye knowe howe that the triynge of youre fayth bryngeth pacience: 4 and let pacyence haue her perfect worke, that ye maye be perfecte and sounde, lackynge nothynge. 5 Yf anye of you lacke wysedome, let hym axe of God whiche geueth to all men indyfferentlye, and casteth no man in the teath: and it shal be geuen hym. 6 But let hym axe it in faith and wauer not. For he that doubteth is lyke the waues of the sea, toste of the wyndes & caried wyth vyolence. 7 Neyther let that man thynke that he shal receyue any thynge of the Lorde. 8 A waueryng mynded man is vnstable in all hys wayes. 9 Let the brother of low degre reioyce in that he is exalted, 10 and the ryche in that he is made lowe. For euen as the flower of the grasse, shal he vanysh away. 11 The sonne riseth with heat, and the grasse widereth, and hys flower falleth awaye, & the beautye of the fashyon of it perysheth: euen so shal the ryche man peryshe wyth hys aboundaunce. 12 Happy is the man that endureth in temptacyon, for when he is tryed, he shal receyue the croune of lyfe, which the Lorde hath promised to them that loue hym. 13 Let no man saye when he is tempted, that he is tempted of God. For god tempteth not vnto euyl, neyther tempteth he any man: 14 But euerye man is tempted, drawne awaye, & entysed of hys owne concupiscence. 15 Then when luste hath conceyued, she bringeth forth sinne, & sinne when it is fynyshed bryngeth forthe death. 16 Erre not my deare brethren. 17 Euery good gyfte, and euerye perfecte gyfte, is from aboue and commeth doune from the father of lyght wyth whome is no varyablenes, neyther is he chaunged vnto darkenes. 18 Of hys owne wyll begat he vs wyth the worde of lyfe, that we shoulde be the fyrste frutes of hys creatures. 19 Wherfore deare brethren, let euerye man be swyfte to heare, slowe to speake, and slow to wrath. 20 For the wrath of man worketh not that whiche is ryghtuous before God. 21 Wherfore laye a parte all fylthynes, all superfluytye of malycyousnes, and receyue wyth mekenes the worde that is grafted in you, whiche is able to saue your soules. 22 And se that ye be doars of the worde & not hearers onely, deceyuyng your owne selues wyth sophystrye. 23 For yf any heare the word, and do it not, he is lyke vnto a man that beholdeth his bodly face in a glasse. 24 For assone as he hath loked on hym selfe, he goeth hys waye, and forgetteth immediatly what hys fashyon was. 25 But who so loketh in the perfecte lawe of lybertye, and contynueth therin (yf he be not a forgetfull hearer, but a doar of the worke) the same shall be happye in hys dede. 26 Yf anye man amonge you seme deuoute, & refrayne not his tonge, but deceyue his owne hert: thys mannes deuocyon is in vayne. 27 Pure deuocyon and vndefyled before God the father is thys: to visite the fatherlesse and wyddowes in theyr aduersitye, and to kepe hym selfe vnspotted of the worlde.
10 Of whiche saluacyon haue the Prophetes enquyred and searched, whiche prophesyed of the grace that shoulde come vnto you, 11 searchynge when or at what tyme of the spyryte of Christe whiche was in them, shoulde signifye, whiche spyryte testyfyed before, the passyons that shoulde come vnto Christe, and the glorye that shoulde folowe after: 12 vnto which Prophetes it was declared, that not vnto them selues, but vnto vs, they shoulde mynyster the thynges whiche are nowe shewed vnto you of them whiche by the holye ghoste sent doune from heauen, haue preached vnto you the thynges whiche the aungels desyre to beholde. 13 Wherfore gyrde vp the loynes of youre myndes, be sober, and trust perfectelye on the grace that is broughte vnto you, by the declarynge of Iesus Christe, 14 as obedyent chyldren not fashyonynge youre selues vnto your old lustes of ignorauncye: 15 but as he whiche called you is holye, euen so be ye holy in all maner of conuersacyon, 16 because it is wrytten. Be ye holy, for I am holy.
21 Who so despyseth his neyghbour, doth amysse: but blessed is he that hath pytye of the poore.
5 When Iesus was entred into Capernaum there came vnto him a certayne Centurion, & besought him 6 sayinge: Master my seruaunte lyeth sycke at home of the palsy, & is greuouslye pained. 7 And Iesus saide vnto him: I wyll come and heale him. 8 The Centurion aunswered and sayd: Sir I am not worthy that thou shouldest come vnder my rofe, but speake the worde only and my saruaunt shalbe healed. 9 For I also my selfe am a man vndre power, & haue soudiers vnder me, & I say to one, go, & he goeth, and to an other come, & he cometh: and to my seruante, do this, he doeth it: 10 When Iesus hearde that, he maruailed & sayed to them that folowed him. Verely I say vnto you, I haue not founde so great faith: no, not in Israel. 11 I say therfore vnto you that many shall come from the east and west, and shal rest with Abraham, Isaac and Iacob in the kingdome of heauen: 12 and the children of the kingdome shall be cast out in the vtter darkenes: there shalbe wepinge and gnashynge of teth. 13 Iesus sayd vnto the Centurion, go thy way, and as thou hast beleued so be it vnto the. And his seruaunt was healed the selfe houre.
1 After that Iesus went about into Galile, and would not go about in Iewry, for the Iewes sought to kyll him. 2 The Iewes tabernacle feaste was at hande. 3 His brethren therfore sayde vnto hym: get the hence, & go into Iewry that thy disciples maye se thy workes that thou doest. 4 For ther is no man that doeth any thing secretly, and he him selfe seketh to be knowen openly. If thou do such thinges shew thy selfe to the worlde. 5 For as yet his brethren beleued not in him. 6 Then Iesus sayde vnto them: My tyme is not yet come, your tyme is alway redye. 7 The worlde can not hate you. But me it hateth: because I testifye of it, that the workes of it are euyll. 8 Go ye vp vnto this feaste, I wyl not go yet vnto this feaste for my tyme is not yet full come. 9 These wordes he sayde vnto them, and abode styll in Galyle. 10 But assone as his brethren were gone vp, he wente also vp vnto the feast: not openly, but as it were priuelye. 11 Then sought him the Iewes at the feaste, and sayde: where is he? 12 And much murmuringe was ther of him amonge the people. Some sayde: He is good. Other sayd nay, but he deceiued the people. 13 How beit no man spake openlye of him, for feare of the Iewes. 14 In the middes of the feaste, Iesus wente vp into the temple and taught 15 And the Iewes maruayled saiynge: How knoweth he the scriptures, seiyng that he neuer learned? 16 Iesus aunswered them, and sayde: My doctryne is not myne: but his that sent me: 17 If any man wil do his wyll he shall knowe of the doctryne, whither it be of God, or whither I speake of my selfe. 18 He that speaketh of him selfe, seketh his owne prayse. But he that seketh his prayse that sent him, the same is true and no vnrightuousnes is in him. 19 Dyd not Moises geue you a lawe, and yet none of you kepeth the lawe? Why go ye about to kill me? 20 The people aunswered and sayde: thou hast the deuyl: who goeth about to kyll the? 21 Iesus aunswereth and saide to them: I haue done one worke, and ye all maruayle. 22 Moyses therfore gaue vnto you circuncisyon: not because it is of Moises, but of the fathers. And yet ye on the Saboth daye, circumcyse a man. 23 If a man on the Saboth daye receyue circumcisyon without breakinge of the lawe of Moyses: disdayne ye at me because I haue made a man euery whit whole on the Saboth daye? 24 Iudge not after the vtter aperaunce: but iudge rightuouse iudgemente.
1 I beseche you therfore brethren, by the mercyfulnes of God, that ye make your bodyes a quicke sacrifyce holye and acceptable vnto God, which is youre reasonable seruynge of God:
2 fulfyll my ioye that ye drawe one waye hauinge one loue, being of one accorde, and of one minde,
8 Neyther toke we bread of anye man for nought: but wroughte wyth laboure and trauayle nyght and daye, because we would not be greuous to anye of you:
10 For God is not vnryghtuous that he should forget your worke and laboure that procedeth of loue, which loue you shewed in hys name, whiche haue mynystred vnto the saynctes, & yet mynyster. 11 Yea, and we desyre that euerye one of you shew the same dylygence, to the stablyshynge of hope euen vnto the ende: 12 that ye faynt not, but folowe them, whiche thorowe fayth & pacience inheret the promyses.
11 And the very same made some Apostles, some Prophetes, some Euangelistes, some sheperdes, some teachers, 12 that the saynctes myghte haue all thinges necessarye to worke and ministre wythal, to the edifiynge of the bodye of Christ, 13 tyl we euerie one (in the vnitie of fayth, and knowledge of the sonne of God) growe vp into a perfecte man, after the measure of age of the fulnes of Christ. 14 That we henceforth be no more chyldren, waueringe and caryed wyth euerye wynde of doctryne, by the wylynes of men and craftynes, wherby they laye awayte for vs to deceyue vs.
1 For as much as Christ hath suffred for vs in the fleshe, arme your selues lykewise wyth the same mynde: for he which suffereth in the fleshe ceaseth from synne, 2 that he hence forwarde shoulde lyue as muche tyme as remayneth in the fleshe, not after the iustes of men, but after the wyl of God. 3 For it is sufficient for vs, that we haue spent the time that is past of the lyfe, after the wil of the Gentiles, walking in wantonnes, lustes, dronckennes, in eatinge, drinkinge & in abominable Idolatrie. 4 And it semeth to them a straunge thynge, that ye runne not also with them vnto the same excesse of riote, and therfore speake they euyl of you, 5 whiche shall geue a comptes to hym that is redy to iudge quicke & dead. 6 For vnto this purpose verely was the Gospel preached vnto the dead that they shoulde be iudged lyke other men in the fleshe, but shoulde lyue before God in the spirite. 7 The ende of al thinges is at hande. Be ye therfore discrete and sober, that ye maye be apt to prayers. 8 But aboue all thinges haue feruente loue among you. For loue couereth the multitude of synnes. 9 Be ye herberous one to another, & that without grudginge. 10 As euerye man hath receyued the gifte, minister the same one to another as good mynisters of the manifolde grace of God. 11 Yf anye man speake let hym talke as though he spake the wordes of God. If any man mynistre, let hym do it as of the habilitie, whyche God ministreth vnto hym. That God in all thinges may be glorifyed thorowe IESUS Christ, to whom be prayse and domynyon for euer, and whyle the worlde standeth. Amen. 12 Dearely beloued, be not troubled in hys heate, whiche nowe is come amonge you to trye you as though some straunge thing had happened vnto you: 13 but reioice in as much as ye are partakers of Christes passions, that when his glory appereth, ye maye be mery and glad. 14 If ye be railed vpon for the name of Christ, happie are ye. For the spyryte of glorye, and the spyryte of Gad resteth vpon you. On theyr parte he is euyll spoken of, but on your parte he is glorified. 15 Se that none of you suffer as a murtherer or as a thefe, or an euil doar, or as a busibody in other mens matters. 16 Yf any man suffer as a Christen man, let him not be ashamed, but let him glorifie God on this behalfe. 17 For the time is come that iudgemente must beginne at the house of God. Yf it fyrst begynne at vs, what shal the ende be of them, whiche beleue not the Gospel of God? 18 And yf the rightuous scasly be saued, where shal the vngodly and the sinner appere? 19 Wherfore let them that suffer according to the wil of God, commit their soules to him with wel doing, as vnto a faythfull creator.
42 But Iesus called them vnto hym, and sayde to them: Ye knowe that they whiche seme to beare rule amonge the gentyls, raygne as lordes ouer them. And they that be great among them, exercyse authoritie ouer them. 43 So shall it not be among you, but whosoeuer of you wil be great among you shalbe your minister. 44 And whosoeuer wilbe chiefe, shalbe seruaunt vnto al. 45 For euen the sonne of man came not to be mynystred vnto, but to minister & to geue hys lyfe for the redempcyon of many.
13 Brethren ye were called into lybertye onelye let not youre lybertye be an occasyon vnto the fleshe, but in loue serue one another. 14 For all the lawe is fulfylled in one worde: whiche is thys: thou shalte loue thyne neyghboure as thy selfe. 15 Yf ye byte and deuour one another: take hede leaste ye be consumed one of another.
16 To do good, and to distrybute, forget not, for wt suche sacryfyces God is pleased.
1 As he behelde, he sawe the ryche men how they cast in theyr offerynges into the treasurye, 2 And he sawe a certayne poore wydowe, whiche caste in thyther two mytes. 3 And he sayde: of a truethe I saye vnto you: this poore widow hath put in more then they all. 4 For they all haue of theyr superfluite added vnto the offering of god: but, she, of her penurye hath caste in all the substaunce that she had.
1 Before the feast of Easter when Iesus knew that hys houre was come, that he shulde depart oute of thys worlde 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 deuyl had put in the herte of Iudas Iscarioth Simons sonne, to betraye hym. 3 Iesus knowyng that the father had geuen all thynges into hys handes, and that he was come from God, and went to God, 4 he rose from supper, and layde asyde hys vpper garmentes, & toke a towell, and gyrde hym selfe. 5 After that poured he water into a bason, & began to wash hys discyples fete, and to wype them wyth a towell, wherewith he was gyrde. 6 Then came he to Symon Peter. And Peter sayde vnto hym: Lorde shalt thou washe my fete? 7 Iesus aunswered, and sayed vnto him: what I do, thou wotest not nowe, but thou shalt knowe hereafter. 8 Peter sayed vnto him: thou shalt not washe my fete whyle the worlde standeth. Iesus aunswered hym: yf I washe the not, thou shalte haue no parte with me. 9 Simon Peter sayed vnto him: Lord not my fete onelye: but also my handes and my heade. 10 Iesus sayed vnto hym: he that is washed, neadeth not saue to washe hys fete, and is cleane euery whyt. And ye are cleane: but not al. 11 For he knewe hys betrayer. Therfore sayed he: ye are not all cleane. 12 After he had washed theyr fete, and receyued hys clothes, and was set doune agayne, he sayed vnto them. Wote ye what I haue done to you? 13 Ye call me mayster and Lorde, & ye saye well, for so am I.
13 For they that mynyster wel, get them selues good degree and greate lybertye in the faythe whiche is in Christ Iesu.
25 And he sayde vnto them: the kinges of the gentyls raigne ouer them, and they that beare rule ouer them, are called gracious Lordes. 26 But ye shall not be so. But he that is greatest amonge you, shalbe as the yongest: and he that is chiefe shal be as the minister. 27 For whether is greater, he that sytteth at meate: or he that serueth? Is not he that sytteth at meate? And I am amonge you, as he that ministreth.
1 In the beginnynge GOD created heauen and erth.
10 For we are his worckmanshyp created in Christe Iesus to good workes, vnto the, whyche God ordeined vs before, that we should walke in them.
1 If there be amonge you anye consolation in Christ, yf there be anye comfortable loue, yf there be anye feloweshyp of spirite, yf there be any compassion or mercye, 2 fulfyll my ioye that ye drawe one waye hauinge one loue, being of one accorde, and of one minde, 3 that nothing be done thorowe stryfe or vaine glorye, but that in mekenes of mynde euerye man esteme other better then him selfe, 4 & that no man considere his owne, but what is meate for other. 5 Let the same mynde be in you that was in Christ Iesu: 6 Whiche beinge in the shap of God, and thought it not robbery to be equal wt God. 7 Neuerthelesse he made hym selfe of no reputation, & toke on him the shap of a seruaunt, and became lyke vnto men, 8 and was founde in hys aparell as a man. He humbled hym selfe, and became obediente vnto the death euen the death of the crosse. 9 Wherfore God hath exalted hym, and geuen hym a name aboue al names, 10 that in the name of Iesus should euerye knee bowe, both of thinges in heauen and thinges in earth, and thinges vnder the earth, 11 and that al tounges should confesse that Iesus Christ is the Lorde vnto the prayse of God the father. 12 Wherfore my dearlye beloued, as ye haue alwayes obeyed, not when I was presente onelye, but nowe much more in myne absence euen so worke out your owne saluacion wt feare and trembling. 13 For it is God, whyche worketh in you, both the wyll and also the dede, euen of good wyl. 14 Do al thinge wythout murmuringe and disputynge, 15 that ye maye be fauteles & pure, the sonnes of God wythout rebuke, in the middes of a croked and a peruerse nacyon, amonge whiche se that ye shine as lightes in the worlde, 16 holding fast the worde of life, vnto my reioysing in the daye of Christe, that I haue not runne in vayne, neyther haue laboured in vaine. 17 Yea, and though I be offered vp vpon the offeringe and sacrifyce of youre fayth: I reioyce, and reioyce wyth you al. 18 For the same cause also, reioyce ye, and reioyce ye wyth me. 19 I truste in the Lord Iesus for to sende Timotheus shortely vnto you, that I also maye be of good comforte, when I knowe what case ye stand in. 20 For I haue noman that is so lyke mynded to me, whiche with so pure affeccion careth for youre matters. 21 For al other seke theyr owne, and not that whiche is Iesus Christes. 22 Ye knowe the profe of hym, howe that as a sonne with the father, so with me bestowed he his laboure vpon the Gospel 23 Hym I hope to send assone as I knowe, howe it wyl go with me. 24 I truste in the Lord I also my selfe shal come shortly. 25 I supposed it necessarye to sende brother Epaphroditus vnto you, my companion in laboure and felow souldier, youre Apostle & my minister at my nedes. 26 For he lounged after you, and was full of heauines, because that ye had hearde saye, that he shoulde be sycke. 27 And no dout he was sicke, and that nye vnto death. But God had mercye on hym not on hym onely, but on me also, lest I should haue had sorowe vpon sorowe. 28 I sent him therfore the diligentliar, that when ye shoulde se hym, ye might reioyce againe, and I myght be the lesse sorowfull. 29 Receiue him therfore in the Lorde wyth al gladnes, and make muche of suche: 30 because that for the worke of Christ he went so farre, that he was nye vnto death, and regarded not hys lyfe, to fulfyll that seruice, whiche was lackinge on your part towarde me.
1 Moreouer my brethren, reioyce in the Lorde. It greueth me not to write one thinge often to you. For to you it is a sure thynge. 2 Beware of dogges, beware of euyll workes. Beware of dyssencyon. 3 For we are cyrcumcysion, whyche worship God in the spirite, and reioyce in Christe Iesu, and haue no confidence in the fleshe, 4 though I haue wherof I might reioice in the fleshe. If any other man thinke that he hath wherof he mighte truste in the fleshe, much more I, 5 circumcised the eighte daye, of the kynred of Israel, of the tribe of Beniamin, an Hebrue borne of the Hebrues: as concerninge the lawe, a pharisey, 6 and as concerning feruentnes, I persecuted the congregation, & as touching the ryghtuousnes, whiche is in the lawe, I was vnrebukeable. 7 But the thinges that were vauntage vnto me. I counted losse for Christes sake. 8 Yea I thinke al thinges but losse for that excellent knowledge sake of Christ Iesu my Lord. For whom I haue counted al thinges losse, and do iudge them but dounge, that I myght wynne Christe, 9 and might be founde in hym, not hauinge mine owne rightuousnes, which is of the lawe, but that whyche spryngeth of the fayth, is in CHRISTE. I meane the rightuousnes, whiche commeth of God thorowe fait 10 in knowinge him and the vertue of his resurreccion, & the fellowshippe of hys passyons, that I myghte be conformable vnto his death, 11 yf by anye meanes I myght atteyne vnto the resurreccyon from death. 12 Not as though I had alreadie atteined to it, either were already perfecte: but I folowe yf that I maye comprehende that, wherin I am comprehended of Christ Iesu. 13 Brethren I count not my selfe that I haue gotten it: but one thinge I say. I forget that, whiche is behinde, & stretche my selfe vnto that whiche is before, 14 and prease vnto the marke appointed, to obteine the reward of the high callinge of God in Christe Iesu. 15 Let vs therfore as many, as be perfect be thus wyse minded, & yf ye be other wise minded, I pray God open euen this vnto you. 16 Neuertheles in the, whervnto we are come, let vs procede by one rule, that we may be of one accord. 17 Brethren be folowers 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 tel you weping) that they are the enemies of the crosse of Christ, 19 whose ende is dampnation, whose God is theyr belye, and whose glorye is to theyr shame, whiche are worldlye minded. 20 But oure conuersation is in heauen, from whence we loke for a sauiour, euen the Lorde Iesus Christ, 21 whiche shal chaunge oure vyle bodies, that they maie be fashioned like vnto his glorious bodie, accordinge to the working, wherby he is able to subdue all thinges vnto him selfe.
1 Therfore my brethren dearlye beloued & lounged for my ioye & crowne, so continue in the Lord, ye beloued. 2 I praye Euodias, & beseche Sintiches that they be of one accorde in the Lorde. 3 Yea, and I beseche the faythfull yockefelowe, helpe the women, whiche laboured wyth me in the Gospell, and with Clemente also, and with other my labour felowes, whose names are in the boke of my lyfe. 4 Reioyce in the Lorde alway, and agayne I say reioyce. 5 Lette your softnes be knowen to all men. The Lorde is euen at hande. 6 Be not carefull: but in all thinges shewe your petition vnto God in prayer and supplication, wyth geuinge of thankes. 7 And the peace of God, whiche passeth al vnderstandynge, kepe your hertes and myndes in Chryste Iesu. 8 Furthermore brethren, whatsoeuer thynges are true, whatsoeuer thinges are honest, whatsoeuer thinges are iuste, whatsoeuer thinges are pure, whatsoeuer thinges pertaine to loue, whatsoeuer thinges are of honeste report: yf there be anie vertuous thinge yf there be anye laudable thinge, 9 those same haue ye in your minde, whiche ye haue both learned and receiued, hearde, and also sene in me: those thinges do, and the God of peace shall be wyth you. 10 I reioyce in the Lorde greatly, that nowe at the last ye are reuiued agayne to care for me, in that wherin ye were also carefull, but ye lacked opportunitie. 11 I speake not because of necessitie. For I haue learned in whatsoeuer estate I am therwyth to be content. 12 I can both cast doune my selfe. I can also excede. Euery where, and in all thinges I am instructed, both to be ful, and to be houngrie, to haue plentie, and to suffre nede. 13 I can do al thinges thorowe the helpe of Christe whiche strengtheth me. 14 Notwithstandinge ye haue well done, that ye beare parte with me in my tribulation. 15 Ye of Philippos knowe that in the beginninge of the Gospel, when I departed from Macedonia, no congregacion beare parte wyth me, as concerning, geuinge, and receiuinge, but ye onely. 16 For when I was in Thessalonica, ye sente ones, and afterwarde agayne vnto my nedes: 17 not that I desire gyftes, but I desire aboundaunte frute on youre part. 18 I receiued al, and haue plentie. I was euen fylled after that I had receyued of Epaphroditus, that which came from you, & odour that smelleth swete, a sacrifyce accepted and pleasaunt to God. 19 My God fulfill youre nedes thorowe hys gloriouse ryches in Iesus Christ. 20 Vnto God and oure father be prayse for euermore. Amen. 21 Salute all the sainctes in Christ Iesus. The brethren which are with me grete you. 22 All the sainctes salute you, and most of all they, which are of the Emperours houshholde. 23 The grace of our Lord Iesus Christe be wyth you all. Amen.
9 Let loue be without dissimulacyon. Hate that whiche is euyll, and cleaue vnto that which is good. 10 Be kynde one to another with brotherlye loue. In geuynge honoure, go one before another. 11 Let not the busynes whiche ye haue in hande, be tedyous to you. Be feruente in the spirite. Applye youre selues to the time. 12 Reioyce in hope. Be pacyent in trybulacyon. Contynue in prayer. 13 Distribute vnto the necessitie of the Saynctes, and be diligente to harboure.
9 Let vs not be werye, of wel doynge. For when the tyme is come, we shall reape withoute werynes.
7 But plucke you vp your hertes, and let not your handes faynte, for youre workes shalbe rewarded.
27 But I say vnto you which heare: loue your enemyes. Do good to them which hate you. 28 Blesse them that coursse you. And praye for them which wrongfully trouble you. 29 And vnto hym that smiteth the on the one cheke, offer also the other. And him that taketh awaye thy gonne, forbyd not to take thy cote also. 30 Giue euerye man that axeth of the. And of hym that taketh awaye thy goodes, axe them not again. 31 And as ye woulde that men should do to you: so do ye to them likewyse. 32 Yf ye loue them which loue you, what thanke are ye worthy of? For the verye synners loue their louers. 33 And if ye do for them which do for you, what thanke are ye worthye of? For the verye synners do euen the same. 34 If ye lende to them of whom ye hope to receiue, what thanke shall ye haue: for the very synners lende to synners to receiue much againe. 35 Wherfore, loue ye your enemyes, do good and lende, lokinge for nothynge againe, and your rewarde shall be greate, and ye shalbe the children of the hyest for he is kinde vnto the vnkinde and to the euyll. 36 Be ye therfore mercifull, as your father is mercyfull. 37 Iudge not and ye shall not be iudged. Condemne not, and ye shall not be condemned. Forgeue you, ye shalbe forgeuen. 38 Geue, and it shalbe geuen vnto you: good measure, pressed doune, shaken together and runninge ouer, shal men geue vnto your bosomes. For with what measure ye mete with the same shall men mete to you agayne. 39 And he putteth forth a symylytude vnto them: Can the blinde leade the blinde? Do they not both then fall into the dyche? 40 The discyple is not aboue his maister. Euery man shalbe perfecte if he be as his mayster is. 41 Why seist thou a moote in thy brothers eye, and consyderest not the beame that is in thyne owne eye? 42 Either howe canst thou saye to thy brother? Brother, let me pul out the moote that is thine eye: When thou perceyuest not the beame that is in thine owne eye? Ypocryte, cast out the beame that is in thine owne eye fyrst, and then shalt thou se perfectlye to pul out the mote out of thy brothers eye. 43 It is not a good tre that bryngeth forth euyll frute: neither is that au euil tre that bringeth forth good frute. 44 For euery tre is knowen by his fruite. Neyther of thornes gather men fygges, nor of bushes gather they grapes. 45 A good man out of the good treasure of his hert bringeth forth that which is good. And an euil man out of the euyll treasure of his herte bringeth forth that which is euyl. For of the aboundaunce of the herte, his mouth speaketh.
19 For though I be fre from all men, yet haue I made my selfe seruaunte vnto all men, that I myght winne the mo.
14 What auayleth it my brethren, thoughe a man saye he hath faythe, when he hath no deedes? Can fayth saue hym? 15 If a brother or a sister be naked or destitute of dayly fode, 16 and one of you saye vnto them: Departe in peace, God sende you warmnes and fode: not wyth standynge ye geue them not those thynges which are nedefull to the bodye: what helpeth it them? 17 Euen so faythe, yf it haue no dedes is dead in it selfe.
16 Let your light so shyne before men that they maye se your good workes, and gloryfye your father which is in heauen.
24 Onelye feare you the Lorde and serue hym truly with all your hertes: for se, he hath done great thynges for you.
18 My babes, let vs not loue in worde neyther in tonge, but wyth the dede and in veryty:
35 For I was an hungred & ye gaue me meate. I thirsted and ye gaue me drinke. I was herbourles and ye lodged me. I was naked and ye clothed me. 36 I was sycke and ye visyted me. I was in pryson and ye came vnto me. 37 Then shal the rightuous aunswere him sayinge, maister, when sawe we the an houngred, & fede the, or a thyrst, & gaue the drinke 38 when sawe we the herborles, and lodged the? or naked and clothed the? 39 or when sawe we the syke or in pryson and came vnto the? 40 And the kinge shall aunswere and saye vnto theym: verelye I saye vnto you: in as much as ye haue done it to one of the least of these my brethren, ye haue done it vnto me.
45 For euen the sonne of man came not to be mynystred vnto, but to minister & to geue hys lyfe for the redempcyon of many.
17 He that hath pittie vppon the poore, lendeth vnto the Lord: & loke what he layeth oute, it shalbe payed hym agayn.
38 Geue, and it shalbe geuen vnto you: good measure, pressed doune, shaken together and runninge ouer, shal men geue vnto your bosomes. For with what measure ye mete with the same shall men mete to you agayne.
11 He that is greatest amonge you: shalbe your seruaunt.
25 He that is liberal in geuyng, shal haue plentye: and he that watereth, shalbe watered also him self.
1 If there be amonge you anye consolation in Christ, yf there be anye comfortable loue, yf there be anye feloweshyp of spirite, yf there be any compassion or mercye, 2 fulfyll my ioye that ye drawe one waye hauinge one loue, being of one accorde, and of one minde, 3 that nothing be done thorowe stryfe or vaine glorye, but that in mekenes of mynde euerye man esteme other better then him selfe, 4 & that no man considere his owne, but what is meate for other. 5 Let the same mynde be in you that was in Christ Iesu: 6 Whiche beinge in the shap of God, and thought it not robbery to be equal wt God. 7 Neuerthelesse he made hym selfe of no reputation, & toke on him the shap of a seruaunt, and became lyke vnto men, 8 and was founde in hys aparell as a man. He humbled hym selfe, and became obediente vnto the death euen the death of the crosse. 9 Wherfore God hath exalted hym, and geuen hym a name aboue al names, 10 that in the name of Iesus should euerye knee bowe, both of thinges in heauen and thinges in earth, and thinges vnder the earth, 11 and that al tounges should confesse that Iesus Christ is the Lorde vnto the prayse of God the father.
28 euen as the sonne of man came not to be minnistred vnto, but to minister, and to geue his life for the redempcion of many.
35 And he sate doune and called the twelue vnto hym, and sayde vnto them: if any man desire to be first, the same shal be last of all, & seruaunt vnto all.
12 After he had washed theyr fete, and receyued hys clothes, and was set doune agayne, he sayed vnto them. Wote ye what I haue done to you? 13 Ye call me mayster and Lorde, & ye saye well, for so am I. 14 Yf I then your lord and mayster haue washed your fete, ye also ought to wash one anothers fete.
35 I haue shewed you all thinges, how that so laborynge ye ought to receyue the weake & to remember the wordes of the lorde Iesu, how that he sayde: it is more blessed to geue then to receyue.
10 As euerye man hath receyued the gifte, minister the same one to another as good mynisters of the manifolde grace of God. 11 Yf anye man speake let hym talke as though he spake the wordes of God. If any man mynistre, let hym do it as of the habilitie, whyche God ministreth vnto hym. That God in all thinges may be glorifyed thorowe IESUS Christ, to whom be prayse and domynyon for euer, and whyle the worlde standeth. Amen.
10 As euerye man hath receyued the gifte, minister the same one to another as good mynisters of the manifolde grace of God.
