10 He hath compaseth the waters wt certayne boundes, vntill the day and night come to an ende.
Bible verses about "universe" | Matthew
1 To the chaunter, of Dauid. The folyshe bodyes saye in their hertes: tushe, there is no God. They are corrupt, & become abhominable in their doynges, there is not one that doth good.
7 He stretched oute the north ouer the emptie, & hangeth the earth vpon nothinge.
10 In the beginning of a thynge, I shewe the ende therof: & I tell before, thynges that are not yet come to passe. With one worde is my deuyce accomplyshed, & fulfylleth all my pleasure.
1 What preferment then hathe the Iewe? other what auauntageth circumcysyon? 2 Surelye verye muche. Fyrste vnto them was commytted the word of God. 3 What then though some of them dyd not beleue? shall theyr vnbelefe make the promes of God withoute effecte? 4 God forbyd. Let God be true and all men lyars, as it is wrytten: That thou myghtest be iustifyed in thy saiynge, and shouldest ouercome when thou art iudged. 5 If our vnryghtuousnes make the ryghtuousnes of God more excellent: what shall we saye? Is God vnrightuous which taketh vengeaunce? I speake after the maner of men, 6 God forbyd. For how then shall God iudge the worlde? 7 Yf the veritie of God appeare more excellent thorow my lye, vnto hys praise why am I hence forth iudged as a synner? 8 & saye not rather (as men euyl speake of vs, and as some affyrme that we saye) let vs do euyll that good maye come thereof. Whose damnacyon is iuste. 9 What saye we then? Are we better then daye? No, in no wyse. For we haue alreadye proued, howe that both Iewes and Gentyls are all vnder synne: 10 as it is wrytten: There is none righteous, no not one: 11 there is none that vnderstandeth, there is none that seketh after God, 12 they are all gone out of the waye, they are all made vnprofytable, there is none that doeth good, no not one. 13 Theyr throte is an open sepulchre, with theyr tonges they haue disceyued, the poyson of aspes is vnder their lippes. 14 Whose mouthes are full of curssyng and bytternes. 15 Theyr fete are swyfte to sheed bloude. 16 Destruccyon and wretchednes are in theyr wayes. 17 And the way of peace they haue not knowen. 18 There is no feare of God before theyr eyes. 19 Yea and we knowe that whatsoeuer the law sayeth, he saith it to them which are vnder the lawe. That all mouthes maye be stopped, and all the world be subdued to God, 20 because that by the dedes of the lawe, shall no fleshe be iustifyed in the syght of God. For by the lawe commeth the knoweledge of synne. 21 Nowe verelye is the ryghteousnes that commeth of God, declared withoute the fulfyllynge of lawe, hauynge wytnes yet of the lawe and of the Prophetes. 22 The ryghteousnes no doubte whiche is good before God commeth by the fayth of Christe, vnto all and vpon all that beleue. There is no difference: 23 for al haue sinned, and lacke the prayse that is of valoure before God, 24 but are iustifyed frelye by hys grace thorowe the redempcion that is in Christe Iesus, 25 whome God hath made a seate of mercye thorowe fayth in hys bloude, to shewe the rightuousnes whiche before hym is of valoure, in that he forgeueth the synnes that are passed, whiche God dyd suffer 26 to shewe at thys time the ryghteousnes that is alowed of hym that he myghte be counted iuste, and iustifyar of hym which beleueth on Iesus. 27 Where is then thy reioysynge? It is excluded. By what lawe? by the lawe of workes? Naye, but by the lawe of faythe. 28 For we suppose that a man is iustified by fayth withoute the dedes of the lawe. 29 Is he the God of Iewes onely? Is he not also the God of the gentyls? Yes, euen of the gentyls also. 30 For it is God onelye which iustifyeth circumcysyon whiche is of fayth, and vncircumcysyon thorowe fayth. 31 Do we then destroye the lawe thorowe fayth? God forbyd. But we rather mayntayne the lawe.
1 What shall we saye then, that Abraham oure father as pertaynyng to the fleshe, dyd fynde? 2 Yf Abraham were iustifyed by dedes, then hath he wherein to reioyce but not with god. 3 For what sayth the scripture? Abraham beleued God, and it was counted vnto hym for ryghteousnes. 4 To hym that worketh, is the rewarde not reckened of fauoure: but of dutye. 5 To hym that worketh not, but beleueth on hym that iustifyeth the vngodly, is hys fayth counted for ryghteousnes. 6 Euen as Dauid descrybeth the blessedfulnes of the man vnto whome God ascrybeth ryghteousnes withoute dedes. 7 Blessed are they, whose vnryghteousnes are forgeuen, and whose synnes are couered. 8 Blessed is that man to whome the Lord imputeth not synne. 9 Came thys blessednes then vpon the circumcysed or vpon the vncircumcysed? We say verelye how that fayth was rekened to Abraham for ryghtuousnes. 10 Howe was it rekened: in the tyme of circumcysyon? or in the tyme before he was circumcysed? Not in tyme of circumcisyon: but when he was yet vncircumcysed. 11 And he receyued the sygne of circumcysyon, as a seale of the ryghtuousnes whiche is by fayth, whiche fayth he had yet beynge vncyrcumcysed: that he shoulde be the father of all them that beleue, thoughe they be not circumcysed, that ryghtuousnes myght be imputed to them also: 12 and that he myghte be the father of the circumcysed, not because they are circumcysed only: but because they walke also in the steppes of that faythe that was in oure father Abraham before the tyme of circumcysyon. 13 For the promes that he shoulde be the heyre of the worlde, was not geuen to Abraham or to hys sede thorowe the lawe: but thorow the ryghtuousnesse which commeth of fayth. 14 For yf they whiche are of the lawe, be heyres, then is fayth but vayne, and the promes of none effecte. 15 Because the lawe causeth wrath. For where no lawe is, there is no transgressyon. 16 Therfore by fayth is the inheritaunce geuen, that it myght come of fauoure: and the promes myghte be sure to all the seed. Not to them onelye, which are of the lawe: but also to them whiche are of the fayth of Abraham, which is the father of vs all. 17 As it is written: I haue made the a father to manye nacyons, euen before God whome thou haste beleued, whiche quickeneth the deade, and called those thinges whiche be not, as thoughe they were. 18 Whiche Abraham contrary to hope, beleued in hope that he shoulde be the father of manye nacyons, accordynge to that whiche was spoken. 19 So shall thy seed be. And he fainted not in the fayth, nor yet consydered hys owne bodye which was now dead, euen when he was almost an hondred year olde: neyther yet that Sara was past chylde bearynge. 20 He stackered not at the promes of God thorowe vnbelefe: but was made stronge in the fayth and gaue honoure to God, 21 full certifyed, that what he had promysed, that he was able to make good. 22 And therfore was it reckened to hym for ryghteousnes. 23 It is not wryten for hym only, that it was reckened for hym for ryghteousnes: but also rekened to hym for ryghtuousnes: 24 but also for vs, to whom ye shalbe counted for rightuousnes, so we beleue on hym that raysed vp Iesus oure Lorde from death. 25 Whiche was deliuered for oure synnes and rose agayne for to iustifye vs.
1 Because therfore that we are iustifyed by fayeth we are at peace wyth God thorowe oure Lorde Iesus Christe 2 by whom we haue a waye in thorowe fayeth vnto thys grace where in we stande & reioye in hope of the prayse that shalbe geuen of God. 3 Nether do we so only: but also we reioice in tribulacion. For we know that tribulation bryngeth pacience, 4 pacience bringeth experience, experience bringeth hope. 5 And hope maketh not ashamed, for the loue of God is sheed abroade in our hertes by the holye ghost, which he is geuen vnto vs. 6 For when we were yet weake accordyng to the tyme: Christ died for vs whiche were vngodly. 7 Yet scrace will anye man dye for a ryghtuouse man. Parauenture for a good man durst a man dye. 8 But God setteth out his loue that he hath to vs, seing that whil we wer yet sinners, Christ died for vs. 9 Much more then now (seing we are iustified in hys bloud) shall we be saued from wrath thorowe hym. 10 For yf when we were enemyes, we were reconciled to God by the death of hys sonne muche more, seynge we are reconciled, we shall be preserued by his lyfe. 11 Not only so, but we also ioy in god by the means of oure Lorde Iesus Christ, by whom we haue receiued the attonment. 12 Wherfore as by one man synne entred into the worlde, and death by the means of synne: 13 And so death went ouer all men, in so much that al men synned. For euen vnto the tyme of the lawe was synne in the worlde, but sinne was not regarded, as long as there was no lawe: 14 neuerthelesse death reygned from Adam to Moyses, euen ouer them also that synned not, with lyke transgression as did Adam: whyche is the similytude of hym that is to come. 15 But the gyfte is not lyke as the synne. For yf thorowe the synne of one, manye be dead: muche more plentuous vpon manye was the grace of God and gyfte by grace: Which grace was geuen by one man Iesus Christe. 16 And the gyfte is not ouer one that sinned. For damnacion came of one synne vnto condemnation but the gyfte came to iustify from many synnes. 17 For if by the synne of one death reygned by the meanes of one: muche more shall they whiche receyue aboundaunce of grace & of the gyfte of ryghtuousnes reigne in life by the meanes of one (that is to saye) Iesus Christe. 18 Lykewyse then as by the synne of one, condemnacion came on al men: euen so by the iustifiyng of one commeth the ryghtuousnes that bryngeth lyfe vpon al men. 19 For as by one mans disobedience many became synners: so by the obedience of one, shall manye be made ryghtuouse. 20 But the law in the meane tyme entred in, that sinne should encreace. Neuerthelater where aboundaunce of synne was, there was more plentuousnes of grace, 21 that as synne had reygned vnto death, euen so myght grace raygne thorow rightuousnes vnto eternall lyfe, by the helpe of Iesus Christe.
1 What shall we saye then? Shal we continue in synne, that there maye be aboundaunce of grace? 2 God forbide. How shal we that are deade as touchynge synne, lyue any lenger therin? 3 Remembre ye not that al we which are baptised in the name of Iesus Christe, are baptised to dye wyth hym? 4 We are buried wyth hym by baptisme, for to dye that lykewyse as Christe was raysed vp from death by the glorye of the father: euen so we also shoulde walke in a newe lyfe. 5 For yf we be grafted in deathe lyke vnto hym: euen so muste we be in the resurrection. 6 Thys we muste remember, that oure olde man is crucified wyth hym also, that the bodye of synne myght vtterlye be destroyed, that hence forthe we should not be seruauntes of synne. 7 For he that is dead is iustifyed from synne. 8 Wherefore yf we be deade wyth Christe, we beleue that we shall lyue with hym: 9 remembrynge that Christe ones raysed from death, dieth no more, death hath nomore power ouer hym. 10 For as touchynge that he dyed, he died concernynge synne, ones. And as touchinge that he liueth, he liueth vnto God. 11 Lyke wyse ymagyne ye also, that ye are dead concernynge synne: but are a lyue vnto God thorowe Iesus Christe oure Lorde. 12 Lette not synne reygne therefore in youre mortall bodyes, that ye shoulde thereunto obey in the lustes of yt. 13 Neyther geue ye youre members as instrumentes of vnrightuousnes vnto sinne: but geue yourselues vnto god, as they that are aliue from death. And geue your membres as instrumentes of ryghtuousnes vnto God, 14 Let not synne haue power ouer you. For ye are not vnder the lawe, but vnder grace. 15 What then? Shall we synne, because we are not vnder the lawe: but vnder grace? God forbyd. 16 Remember ye not howe that to whomsoeuer ye commit your selues as seruauntes to obey, hys seruauntes ye are to whom ye obey: whether it be of synne vnto death, or of obedience vnto rightuousnes? 17 God be thanked that though ye were ones the seruauntes of synne ye haue yet obeyed with herte vnto the forme of doctrine wherunto ye were delyuered. 18 Ye are then made fre from sinne, & are become the seruauntes of rightuousnes. 19 I will speake grossely because of the infirmitie of youre fleshe. As ye haue geuen your members seruauntes to vnclennes and to iniquitie: from iniquitie vnto iniquitie: euen so now geue your membres seruauntes vnto rightuousnes, that ye may be sanctifyed. 20 For when ye were the seruauntes of synne, ye were not vnder rightuousnes. 21 What fruit had ye then in those thynges, where of ye are nowe ashamed. For the ende of those thynges is deathe. 22 But nowe are ye deliuered from synne, and made the seruauntes of God, and haue youre fruyte that ye shoulde be sanctified, & the ende euerlastynge lyfe. 23 For the rewarde of sinne is death: but eternal lyfe is the gyfte of God, thorow Iesus Christ oure Lorde.
1 Remembre ye not brethren (I speake to them that knowe the lawe) howe that the lawe hath power ouer a man as longe as yt endureth? 2 For the woman whiche is in subiection to a man, is bounde by the lawe to the man as longe as he liueth. If the man be dead, she is lowsed from the lawe of the man. 3 So then if whyle the man liueth the completh her selfe wyth an other man, she shall be counted a wedlocke breaker. But yf the man be dead, she is fre from the law, so that she is no wedlocke breaker, though she couple her selfe wyth an other man. 4 Euen so ye my brethren, are dead concerning the lawe by the bodye of Christ, that ye shoulde be coupled to another (I meane to hym that is risen agayne from death) that we shoulde brynge forth fruite vnto God. 5 For when we were in the fleshe the lustes of synne whych were sterred vp by the law reygned in oure membres, to brynge forthe fruyte vnto deathe. 6 But nowe are we deliuered from the lawe, & dead from that where vnto we were in bondage, that we should serue in a newe conuersacion of the spirite, and not in the olde conuersacion of the letter. 7 What shall we saye then? Is the lawe synne? God forbid: but I knewe not what synne meante but by the law. For I had not knowne what luste had meant, except the lawe had sayed, thou shalte, not lust. 8 But synne toke an occasion by the meanes of the commaundement, and wrought in me al maner of concupiscence. For without the lawe, synne was dead. 9 I ones liued without lawe. But when the commaundemente came, synne reuyued, & I was deade. 10 And the verye same commaundemente which was ordeyned vnto lyfe, was founde to be vnto me an occasion of death, 11 for synne toke occasion by the meanes of the commaundement and so disceyued me, and by the selfe commaundemente slewe me. 12 Wherfore the lawe is holye and the commaundement holy, iuste and good. 13 Was that then whiche is good, made death vnto me? God forbid. Naye, synne was death vnto me, that yt might appere, howe that synne by the meanes of that which is good, had wrought death in me: that sinne which is vnder the commaundemente, myghte be out of measure synfull. 14 For we knowe that the lawe is spirituall but I am carnal, sold vnder synne, 15 because I wote not what I do. For what. I would do, that I do not: but what I hate, that do I. 16 Yf I do nowe that which I would not. I graunt to the lawe that it is good. 17 So then now, yt is not I that do yt, but sinne that dwelleth in me. 18 For I knowe that in me (that is to saye in my fleshe) dwelleth no good thynge. To wyll is present wyth me: but I fynde no meanes to performe that whiche is good. 19 For I doo not the good thynge whyche I woulde: but that euyll do I which I woulde not. 20 Finallye, if I do that I woulde not, then is yt not I that do it, but synne that dwelleth in me, doeth it. 21 I fynde then by the lawe that when I woulde do good, euyll is present with me. 22 I delite the lawe of God, concernynge the inner man. 23 But I se another lawe in my membres rebellynge agaynst the lawe of my mynde and subduynge me vnto the lawe of synne whyche is in my membres. 24 O wretched man that I am: who shall deliuer me frome this bodye of deathe? 25 I thanke God thorowe Iesus Christe oure Lorde. So then I my selfe in my mynde serue the law of God, & in my flesh the lawe of synne.
1 There is then no damnation to them which are in Christ Iesu, which walke not after the flesh: but after the spirite. 2 For the law of the spirite that bringeth lyfe through lyfe through Iesus Christe, hath delyuered me from the lawe of synne & death. 3 For what the lawe coulde not do in as much as it was weake because of the fleshe: that performed God, and sente hys sonne in the similitude of synfull fleshe, 4 and by synne dampned synne in the fleshe: that the ryghtuousnes requyred of the law myghte be fulfylled in vs, which walke not after the flesh but after the spirite. 5 For they that are carnally, are carnally mynded. But they that are spirituall, are ghostly minded. 6 To be carnally mynded is death. But to be spiritually minded is lyfe and peace. 7 Because that the fleshlye minde is enemy agaynste God: for it is not obediente to the lawe of God, neyther can be. 8 So then they that are geuen to the fleshe, can not please God. 9 But ye are not geuen to the fleshe, but to the spirite yf so be that the spirite of God dwell in you. Yf there be any man that hath not the spirite of Christ, the same is none of hys. 10 Yf Christe be in you, the bodye is deade because of synne: but the spirite is lyfe for ryghtuousnes sake. 11 Wherfore yf the spirit of him that raysed vp Iesus frome deathe dwell in you, euen he that raysed vp Christe from death shall quicken your mortall bodyes, because that his spirite dwelleth in you. 12 Therfore brethren we are nowe detters not to the fleshe, 13 to lyue after the fleshe. For yf ye liue after the, fleshe, ye muste dye. But if ye mortifye the dedes of the bodye, by the helpe of the spirite, ye shall liue. 14 For as many as are led by the spirite of God: 15 they are the sonnes of God. For ye haue not receiued the spirite of bondage to feare anye more: but ye haue receiued the spirite of adoption, where by we crye Abba father. 16 The same spirite certifieth oure spirite that we are the sonnes of God. 17 Yf we be sonnes, we are also heyres, the heyres I meane of God, and heyres annexed with Christe yf so be that we suffer together, that we maye be glorified together. 18 For I suppose that the afflictions of thys lyfe are not worthy of the glory which shall be shewed vpon vs. 19 Also the feruente desyre of the creatures abydeth lokynge when the sonnes of God shal appere, 20 because the creatures are subdued to vanitie agaynst their wyl but for his will which subdueth them in hope. 21 For the verye creatures shall be deliuered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious libertye of the sonnes of God. 22 For we knowe that euerye creature groneth with vs also & traueyleth in payne euen vnto this tyme. 23 Not they onely, but euen we also which haue the fyrst fruytes of the spirite, mourne in oure selues and wayte for the (adoption) & luke for the deliueraunce of oure bodyes. 24 For we are saued by hope, But hope that is sene is no hope. For howe can a man hope for that which he seyth? 25 But and yf we hope for that we se not, then do we with pacience abyde for yt. 26 Lykewyse the spirite also helpeth our infirmityes. For we knowe not what to desyre as we ought: but the spirite maketh intercession mightelye for vs wyth gronynges whiche can not be expressed with tonge. 27 And he that searcheth the hertes knoweth what is the meanynge of the spirite: for he maketh intercession for the sayntes accordinge to the pleasure of God. 28 For we knowe that all thynges worke for the beste vnto them that loue God, whyche also are called of purpose. 29 For those which he knewe before he also ordeyned before, that they shoulde be like fashioned vnto the shape of hys sonne that he myght be the fyrste begotten sonne amonge manye brethren. 30 More ouer whiche he appointed before, them he also called. And which he called, them also he iustified, whiche he iustified, them he also glorifyed. 31 What shall we then say vnto these thynges? yf God be on oure syde: who can be agaynste vs? 32 whyche spared not his owne sonne but gaue hym for vs all: how shall he not wyth hym geue vs all thynges also? 33 Who shall laye anye thynge to the charg of Goddes chosen? It is God that iustifieth 34 who then shall condempne? It is Christe whyche is dead, ye rather which is rysen agayne, which is also on the right hande of God, and maketh intercession for vs. 35 Who shall seperate vs from the loue of God shall tribulation? or anguyshe? or persecution? othere honger? other nakednesse? other peryll? other swearde? 36 As it is wrytten: For thy sake are we killed al day longe, and are counted as shepe appointed to be slayne. 37 Neuerthelesse in all these thynges we ouercome stronglye thorowe hys helpe that loued vs. 38 Yea and I am sure that neyther death, neither life, neyther angels, nor rule, neythere power, neythere thinges presente, neyther thynges to come, 39 neyther heyght, neyther loweth, neyther any other creature? shall be able to depart vs from the lowe of God, shewed in Christ Iesu our Lord.
1 I say the trueth in Christe and lye not, in that where of my conscience beareth me wytnes in the holy goste, 2 that I haue great heauines and continuall sorowe in my hert. 3 For I haue wyshed my selfe to be cursed from Christ, for my brethren and my kynsmen (as pertaynynge to the fleshe) 4 whiche are the Israelites. To whom pertayneth the adoption, and the glory, and the couenauntes, & the lawe that was geuen, & the seruice of God, & the promises: 5 whose also are the fathers & they of whom (as concerninge the flesh) Christe came, whiche is God ouer al thynges blessed for euer. Amen. 6 I speake not these thinges as though the wordes of God had taken none effect. For they are not al Israelites whiche came of Israell, 7 neither are they al chyldren strayght way, because they are the seede of Abraham. But in Isaac shall thy seede be called: 8 that is to saye, they whiche are the chyldren of the fleshe, are not the chyldren of God. But the chyldren of promise are counted the seede. 9 For this is a worde of promyse, aboute this tyme wyll I come, and Sara shall haue a sonne. 10 Neither was it so with her onely: but also when Rebecca was wyth childe by one, I meane by oure father Isaac, 11 yer the children were borne, when they had neither done good nor bad: that the purpose of God whiche is by election, might stand, it was sayed vnto her, not by the reason of workes, but by grace of the caller: 12 the elder shall serue the yonger. 13 As it is wrytten: Iacob loued, but Esau he hated. 14 What shall we saye then? is there any vnrightuousnes with God? God forbid. 15 For he sayth to Moyses: I will shewe mercy to whom I shewe mercy: and wyll haue compassion 16 on whom I will haue compassion. So lyeth it not then in a mans wil or cunnynge, but in the mercy of God. 17 For the scripture sayeth vnto Pharao. Euen for this same purpose haue I sterred the vp, to shewe my power on the and that my name myghte be declared thorowout al the worlde. 18 So hath he mercie on whom he wyll, and whom he wyll, he maketh harde herted. 19 Thou wylt saye then vnto me: why then blameth he vs yet? For who can resist hys wyll? 20 But O man, what arte thou whiche disputeste wyth God? Shall the worke saye to the workeman, why haste thou made me on thys fashion? 21 Hath not the potter power ouer the clay euen of the same lumpe to make one vessell vnto honoure, and another vnto dishonoure? 22 Euen so God wyllynge to shewe his wrath, and to make his power knowen, suffered wyth longe pacience the vessels of wrath, ordeined to damnacion, 23 that he myght declare the riches of his glory on the vesseles of mercye, whiche he had prepared vnto glorye: 24 that is to saye, vs whom he called, not of the Iewes only, but also of the gentils. 25 As he sayeth in Osee I wyll call them my people which were not my people: and her beloued which was not beloued. 26 And it shall come to passe in the place where it was sayed vnto them, ye are not my people: that there shalbe called the children of the liuinge God. 27 But Esayas cryeth concernynge Israell, thoughe the nomber of the chyldren of Israel be as the sande of the sea, yet shall a remnaunt be saued. 28 He fynysheth the worde verely, and maketh it shorte in ryghtuousnes. For a short worde wyll God make on earth. 29 And as Esayas sayed before. Excepte the Lorde of Sabaoth had left vs seede, we had bene made as Zodoma, and had ben lykened to Gomorra. 30 What shall we saye then? We saye that the Gentyles which folowed not ryghteousnes haue ouertaken ryghtuousnes: I meane the ryghtuousnes whiche cometh of faythe. 31 But Israell whiche folowed the lawe of rightuousnes, coulde not attayne vnto the lawe of ryghtuousnes. 32 And wherfore? Because they sought it not by fayth: but as it were by the workes of the lawe. For they haue stombled at the stomblynge stone. 33 As it is wrytten. Beholde I put in Syon a stomblyng stone, and a rocke which shall make men faule. And none that beleue on hym, shalbe a shamed.
10 Neuertheles the daye of the Lord wyl come as a thiefe in the nyght in the which daye, the heauens shal peryshe wyth terryble noyse, and the elementes shal melte wyth heate, and the earth wyth the workes that are therin shal burne.
4 There were tyrantes in the world in those dayes. For after that the chyldren of god had gone in, vnto the daughters of men, & had begotten them chyldren, the same chyldren were the mightiest of the world, & men of renowne.
4 For a thousande yeares in thy sighte are but as yesterdaye that is past, and lyke as it were a nyght watch.
14 Than sayde God: let there be lightes in the fyrmament of heauen, to deuyde the day from the nyght, that they may be vnto sygnes, seasons, dayes and yeares.
5 Moreouer vpon al the dwellynges of the hyl of Syon, and vpon their whole congregacyon, shal the Lord prouyde a cloude & smoke by daye, and the shynynge of a flammynge fyre by nyght: for all their glorye shalbe preserued.
26 And God sayde: let vs make man in oure similitude & after our lycknesse: that he may haue rule ouer the fysh of the sea, and ouer the foules of the ayre, & ouer catell, and ouer all the erth, and ouer all wormes that crepe on the erth.
2 The erth was voyde and empty, and darcknesse was vpon the depe, and the spirite of God moued vpon the water.
22 That he sytteth vpon the circle of the worlde, and that al the inhabytours of the worlde are in comparison of him, but as greshoppers: That he spredeth out the heauens as a coueryng, that he stretcheth them out, as a tent to dwell in:
1 In the beginnynge GOD created heauen and erth. 2 The erth was voyde and empty, and darcknesse was vpon the depe, and the spirite of God moued vpon the water. 3 Than God sayd: let there be light: & there was lyght. 4 And God sawe the lyght that it was good: & deuyded the lyght from the darcknesse, 5 & called the lyght the daye, & the darcknesse the nyght: and so of the euenyng & mornyng was made the fyrst daye. 6 And God sayde: let there be a fyrmament betwene the waters, & let it deuyde the waters a sonder. 7 Than God made the fyrmament, and parted the waters whyche were vnder the fyrmament, from the waters that were aboue the fyrmament: And it was so. 8 And God called the fyrmament Heauen. And so of the euenynge and mornyng was made the seconde daye. 9 And God sayde: let the waters that are vnder heauen gather them selues vnto one place, that the drye lande may appere. And it came so to passe. 10 And GOD called the drye lande the erth, and the gatheryng together of waters called he the sea. And God sawe that it was good. 11 And God sayde: let the erth brynge forth herbe and grasse that sowe seed, and fruteful trees, that bere frute euery one in his kynde, hauyng their seed in them selues vpon the erth. And it came so to passe. 12 And the erth brought forth herbe and grasse sowing seed euery one in hys kynde, and trees berynge frute, and hauynge theyr seed in themselues, euery one in hys kynde. And God sawe that it was good, 13 and then of the euenyng and mornyng was made the thyrde daye. 14 Than sayde God: let there be lightes in the fyrmament of heauen, to deuyde the day from the nyght, that they may be vnto sygnes, seasons, dayes and yeares. 15 And let them be lyghtes in the fyrmament of heauen, to shyne vpon the erth: And so it was. 16 And God made two greate lyghtes: A greater lyght to rule the daye, and a lesse lyght to rule the nyght: and he made sterres also. 17 And God put them in the fyrmament of heauen to shyne vpon the erth, 18 and to rule the daye and the nyght: and to deuyde the lyght from darcknesse. And God sawe that it was good: 19 & so of the euenyng & mornyng was made the fourth day. 20 And God said: let the water bryng forth creatures that moue and haue lyfe, & foules for to flye ouer the erth vnder the fyrmament of heauen. 21 And God created greate whalles and al maner of creatures that lyue & moue, whych the waters brought forth in their kyndes, & all maner of fethered foules in theyr kyndes. And God sawe that it was good: 22 & God blessed them sayinge: Growe and multyplie and fyll the waters of the seas: and let the foules multyplye vpon the erth. 23 And so of the euening & morning was made the fyfth day. 24 And God sayd: let the erth brynge forth lyuynge creatures in their kyndes: catell and wormes & beastes of the erth in their kyndes, & so it came to passe. 25 And God made the beastes of the erth in their kyndes, and catell in their kyndes, & al maner wormes of the erth in their kyndes: & God saw that it was good. 26 And God sayde: let vs make man in oure similitude & after our lycknesse: that he may haue rule ouer the fysh of the sea, and ouer the foules of the ayre, & ouer catell, and ouer all the erth, and ouer all wormes that crepe on the erth. 27 And God created man after hys likenes, after the lycknesse of god created he hym: male & female created he them. 28 And God blessed them, & God sayde vnto them: Growe and multiplye & fyl the erth, & subdue it, & haue dominion ouer the fyshes of the sea, and ouer the foules of the ayre, and ouer al the beastes that moue on the erth. 29 And God sayde: see, I haue geuen you al herbes that sowe seed, whyche are on all the erth, & all maner trees that haue frute in them and sowe seed: to be meate for you 30 and for al beastes of the erth, and vnto all foules of the ayre, and vnto all that crepeth on the erth, where in is lyfe, that they maye haue all maner herbes and grasse for to eate, and euen so it was. 31 And God behelde all that he had made, and loo, they were exceadinge good: & so of the euenynge and mornyng was made the syxte daye.
