1 Heare (O ye children) the fatherly exortacio, & take good hede, that ye maye lerne wy?dome. 2 Yee I shal geue you a good rewarde, yf ye wil not forsake my lawe. 3 For when I myself was my fathers deare sonne, and tenderly beloued of my mother, 4 he taught me also, sayenge: let thine herte receaue my wordes, kepe my commaundementes, and thou shalt lyue. 5 Get the wy?dome, get the vnderstondinge, forget not ye wordes of my mouth, & shreke not from them. 6 Forsake her not, and she shal preserue the: loue her, and she shal kepe the. 7 The chefe poynte of wy?dome is, that thou be wyllynge to opteyne wy?dome, and before all thy goodes to get the vnderstondynge. 8 Make moch of her, and she shal promote the: Yee yf thou embracest her, she shal brynge the vnto honoure. 9 She shal make the a gracious heade, and garnish the with ye crowne of glory. 10 Heare my sonne, and receaue my wordes, that the yeares of thy life maye be many. 11 I wil shewe the ye waye of wy?dome, and lede the in the right pathes. 12 So that yf thou goest therin, there shal no straytnesse hynder the: and when thou runnest, thou shalt not fall. 13 Take fast holde of doctryne, let her not go: kepe her, for she is thy life. 14 Come not in the path of the vngodly, and walke not in the waye of the wicked. 15 Eschue it, & go not therin: departe asyde, & passe ouer by it. 16 For they can not slepe, excepte they haue first done some myschefe: nether take they eny rest, excepte they haue first done some harme. 17 For they eate the bred of wickednesse, and drike the wyne of robbery. 18 The path of the rightuous shyneth as the light, and is euer brighter & brighter vnto the parfecte daye. 19 But ye waye of the vngodly is as the darcknesse, wherin me fall, or they be awarre. 20 My sonne, marcke my wordes, and enclyne thine eare vnto my saynges. 21 Let them not departe from thine eyes, kepe them euen in the myddest of thine herte. 22 For they are life vnto all those that finde the, and health vnto all their bodies. 23 Kepe thine hert with all diligence, for there vpon hangeth life. 24 Put awaye from the a frowarde mouth, and let the lippes of slaunder be farre from the. 25 Let thine eyes beholde the thinge yt is right, & let thine eye lyddes loke straight before the. 26 Podre the path of thy fete, so shal all yi wayes be sure. 27 Turne not asyde, nether to the right hande ner to the lefte, but witholde thy fote from euell.

Why is then Adonias made kynge? 14 Beholde, while thou art yet there, and talkest with the kynge, I wyll come in after the, and tell forth thy tayle. 15 And Bethseba wente in to the kynge to ye chamber. And the kynge was very olde. And Abisag of Sunem serued the kynge. 16 And Bethseba bowed hirselfe, and worshipped the kynge.The kynge sayde: What wilt thou? 17 She sayde vnto him: My lorde, Thou hast sworne vnto thy handmayde by the LORDE thy God: Thy sonne Salomon shall be kynge after me and syt vpon my seate.

Like as he walked before the in faithfulnes and righteousnes, and in a true hert with the, & this greate mercy hast thou layed vp for him, and geuen him a sonne to syt vpon his seate, as it is now come to passe. 7 Now LORDE my God, thou hast made thy seruaunt kynge in my father Dauids steade: As for me, I am but a small yonge man, knowynge nether my outgoynge ner ingoynge. 8 And thy seruaunt is amonge the people whom thou hast chosen: which is so greate, that no man can nombre them ner descrybe them for multitude. 9 Geue thy seruaunt therfore an obedient hert, that he maye iudge thy people, & vnderstonde what is good & bad: for who is able to iudge this thy mightie people? 10 This pleased the LORDE well, that Salomon axed soch a peticion. 11 And God sayde vnto him: For so moch as thou axest this, and desyrest not longe lyfe, nether riches, nether ye soules of thine enemies, but vnderstodinge to heare iudgment, 12 beholde, therfore haue I done acordynge to thy wordes. Beholde, I haue geuen the an hert of wy?dome and vnderstondynge, so that soch one as thou hath not bene before the, nether shall ryse vp after the. 13 Yee and that thou hast not prayed for, haue I geuen the also, namely, ryches, and honoure, so that amonge the kynges in yi tyme there is not soch one as thou.

5 for Dauid thoughte, Salomo my sonne is but a childe and tender: But the house that shal be buylded vnto the LORDE, shal be greate, that his name & prayse maye be exalted in all londes, therfore wyl I prouyde for him. So Dauid made greate prouysion before his death.
11 Now my sonne, the LORDE shal be wyth the, and thou shalt prospere, that thou mayest buylde an house vnto the LORDE thy God, acordynge as he hath spoken of the. 12 The LORDE also shal geue the wy?dome & vnderstondynge, and shal commytte Israel vnto the, that thou mayest kepe the lawe of the LORDE thy God. 13 But then shal thou prospere, yf thou take hede to do after the ordynaunces and lawes which the LORDE commaunded Moses vnto Israel. Be stronge, and take a good corage vnto the, feare not, and be not faynt harted. 14 Beholde, I haue in my pouerte prouyded for the house of the LORDE, an hundreth thousande talentes of golde, and a thousande tymes a thousande talentes of syluer, and brasse and yron without nombre: for there is so moch of it. And tymbre and stone haue I prepared, thou mayest get more therof. 15 Thou hast many workmen also, mesons and carpenters in stone and tymber, and all maner of men that haue vnderstondinge in all worke 16 off golde, syluer, brasse, and yron without nombre.

17 Then shulde thy life be as cleare as the noone daye, and sprynge forth as the mornynge.
25 and grope in the darke without light, stackeringe to and fro like droncken men.
5 Shal not the light of the vngodly be put out? yee the flame of his fyre shal not burne. 6 The light shalbe darcke in his dwellinge, & his candle shalbe put out with him. 7 His presumptuous goinges shal be kepte in, and his owne councell shal cast him downe. 8 For his fete shalbe taken in the nett, and he shal walke in the snare.
18 he shalbe dryuen from the light into darcknesse, and be cast clene out of the worlde.

4 Their mouth is full of cursinge and bytternes, their fete are swift to shed bloude. Destruccion & wretchednes are in their wayes, ad the waye of peace haue they not knowne: there is no feare off God before their eyes.
36 Thou hast made rowme ynough vnder me for to go, that my fote steppes shulde not slyde.
3 He quickeneth my soule, & bringeth me forth in the waye of rightuousnes for his names sake.
11 Come hither (o ye children) herken vnto me, I wil teach you the feare of the LORDE.
4 He ymagineth myschefe vpon his bedde, he will come in no good waye, ner refuse the thinge that is euell.
23 The LORDE ordreth a good mans goinge, & hath pleasure in his waye.
2 He brought me out of the horrible pitte, out of the myre and claye: he set my fete vpo the rocke, and ordred my goinges.
8 In the begynnynge of the boke it is written of me, that I shulde fulfill thy wil O my God, & that am I contet to do: yee thy lawe is within my hert.
18 All this is come vpon vs, & yet haue we not forgotten the, ner behaued oure selues vnfaithfully in thy couenaunt.
16 Sela. O be not thou afrayed, whan one is made riche, & the glory of his house increased. 17 For he shal cary nothinge awaye wt him when he dyeth, nether shal his pompe folowe him. 18 Whyle he lyueth, he is counted an happie man: & so loge as he is in prosperite, me speake good of him. 19 But whe he foloweth his fathers generacion, he shal neuer se light eny more. 20 When a man is in honoure and hath no vnderstodinge, he is compared vnto the brute beastes, and becommeth like vnto them.
1 Heare my lawe (o my people) encline yor eares vnto ye wordes of my mouth.
7 They go from strength to strength and so the God of Gods apeareth vnto the in Sion.
12 O teach vs to nombre oure dayes, that we maye applie oure hertes vnto wy?dome.
5 O that my wayes were stablished to kepe thy statutes.
11 Thy wordes haue I hyd within my herte, yt I shulde not synne agaynst the.
37 O turne awaye myne eyes, lest they beholde vanite, & quicke me in thy waie.
51 The proude haue me greatly in derision, yet shrencke not I from thy lawe.
59 I call myne owne wayes to remembraunce, and turne my fete in to thy testimonies.
104 Thorow thy commaundementes I get vnderstondinge, therfore I hate all false wayes.
157 Many there are that trouble me, and persecute me, yet do not I swarue fro thy testimonies.
165 Greate is the peace yt they haue which loue yi lawe, & they are not offended at it.
1 My sonne, yf thou wilt receaue my wordes, and kepe my comaundemetes by the,
10 Yf wy?dome entre in to thine herte, and yi soule delyte in knowlege: 11 then shal councell preserue the, and vnderstondinge shal kepe the. 12 That thou mayest be delyuered fro ye euell waye, and from the man yt speaketh frowarde thinges. 13 From soch as leaue the hye strete, and walke i ye wayes of darcknesse:
8 so shal thy nauel be whole, and thy bones stronge.
13 Well is him that fyndeth wy?dome, & opteyneth vnderstondinge, 14 for the gettinge of it is better then eny marchaundise of syluer, & the profit of it is better then golde. 15 Wy?dome is more worth the precious stones, & all ye thinges yt thou canst desyre, are not to be compared vnto her. 16 Vpon hir right hande is longe life, & vpon hir left hande is riches & honor.
18 She is a tre of life to them that laye holde vpon her, and blessed are they that kepe her fast.
35 The wyse shal haue honor in possession, but shame is the promocio that fooles shal haue.
4 he taught me also, sayenge: let thine herte receaue my wordes, kepe my commaundementes, and thou shalt lyue.
7 The chefe poynte of wy?dome is, that thou be wyllynge to opteyne wy?dome, and before all thy goodes to get the vnderstondynge.
10 Heare my sonne, and receaue my wordes, that the yeares of thy life maye be many.
19 But ye waye of the vngodly is as the darcknesse, wherin me fall, or they be awarre.
1 My sonne, geue hede vnto my wysdome, & bowe thine eare vnto my prudece:
6 She regardeth not the path of life, so vnstedfast are hir wayes, that thou canst not knowe them.
8 Kepe thy waye farre from her, and come not nye ye dores of hir house.
21 For euery mas wayes are open in the sight of the LORDE, and he podereth all their goinges.
5 Saue thy self as a doo fro ye honde, & as a byrde fro the hode of the fouler.
12 A dissemblynge person, a wicked man goeth with a frowarde mouth:
20 My sonne, kepe thy fathers comaundemetes, & forsake not ye lawe of thy mother.
1 My sonne, kepe my wordes, & laye vp my comaundemetes by the.
2 Kepe my comaundemetes & my lawe, eue as the aple of thine eye, & thou shalt lyue.
4 Saye vnto wysdome: thou art my sister, and call vnderstondinge thy kynswoman:
13 With me is the feare of the LORDE, and ye eschuynge of euell. As for pryde, disdayne, an euell waye, & a mouth that speaketh wicked thiges, I vtterly abhorre the.
20 I walke in ye waye of rightuousnes, & in the strete of iudgment.
32 Therfore harken vnto me (o ye children) for blessed are they that kepe my wayes. 33 O geue eare vnto nurtoure, be wyse, and refuse it not. 34 Blessed is ye man that heareth me, watchinge daylie at my gates, & geuynge attendaunce at the postes of my dores. 35 For who so fyndeth me, fyndeth life, and shal optayne fauoure of the LORDE. 36 But who so offendeth agaynst me, hurteth his owne soule. All they that hate me, are the louers of death.
6 Forsake ignorauce, and ye shal lyue: and se that ye go in the waye of vnderstondinge.
17 stollen waters are swete, & the bred that is preuely eaten, hath a good taist.
16 A gracious woma manteyneth honestie, as for the mightie, they manteyne ryches.
18 A slaunderous personne pricketh like a swerde, but a wyse mans tonge is wholsome.
3 He that kepeth his mouth, kepeth his life: but who so speaketh vnaduysed, fyndeth harme.
20 He that goeth in the company of wyse men, shal be wyse: but who so is a copanyo of fooles, shal be hurte.
31 Age is a crowne of worshipe, yf it be founde in the waye of righteousnes.
16 What helpeth it to geue a foole money in his hode, where as he hath no mynde to bye wy?dome?
20 Who so hath a frowarde herte, opteyneth no good: and he yt hath an ouerthwarte tonge, shal fall into myschefe.
1 Who so hath pleasure to sowe discorde, piketh a quarell in euery thinge.
8 He that is wyse, loueth his owne soule: and who so hath vnderstondinge, shal prospere.
20 O geue eare vnto good councell, & be content to be refourmed, that thou mayest bewyse here after.
17 Euery ma liketh the bred that is gotten with disceate, but at the last is mouth shalbe fylled with grauell.
6 Who so hoordeth vp riches wt ye disceatfulnes of his tonge, he is a foole, & like vnto them that seke their owne death.
17 My sonne, bowe downe thine eare, and herken vnto the wordes of wy?dome, applye yi mynde vnto my doctryne:
5 Why wilt thou set thine eye vpon ye thinge, which sodenly vanisheth awaye? For riches make them selues wynges, and take their flight like an Aegle in to ye ayre.
19 My sonne, ue eare & be wyse, so shal thine hert prospere in the waye.
23 Labor for to get ye treuth: sell not awaye wy?dome, nourtor & vnderstodinge
33 So shal thine eyes loke vnto straunge women, & thine herte shal muse vpon frowarde thinges.
26 He that trusteth in his owne hert, is a foole: but he that dealeth wisely, shalbe safe.
4 I made gorgious fayre workes, I buylded me houses, and planted vynyardes: 5 I made me ortchardes and gardens of pleasure, and planted trees in them of all maner frutes. 6 I made poles of water, to water ye grene and frutefull trees withall. 7 I bought seruauntes and maydes, and had a greate housholde. As for catell and shepe, I had more substaunce of them, then all they yt were before me in Ierusalem. 8 I gathered syluer & golde together, euen a treasure of kynges & londes. I prouided me syngers and wome which coude playe of instrumentes, to make men myrth and pastime. I gat me drynkynge cuppes also and glasses. 9 (Shortly) I was greater & in more worshipe, then all my predecessours in Ierusale. For wy?dome remayned with me:
8 There is one man, no mo but himself alone, hauynge nether childe ner brother: yet is there no ende of his carefull trauayle, his eyes can not be satisfied with riches, (yet doth he not remembre himself, & saye:) For whom do I take soch trauayle? For whose pleasure do I thus consume awaye my lyfe? This is also a vayne and miserable thinge.
13 Yet is there a sore plage, which I haue sene vnder the Sonne (namely) riches kepte to the hurte of him yt hath them in possession.
12 For wy?dome defendeth as well as moneye, and the excellent knowlege and wy?dome geueth life vnto him that hath it in possession.
16 Then sayde I: wy?dome is better then strength. Neuertheles, a symple mans wy?dome is despysed, & his wordes are not herde. 17 A wise mans councell that is folowed in sylence, is farre aboue the crienge of a captaine amoge fooles. 18 For wy?dome is better then harnesse: but one vnthrift alone destroyeth moch good.
9 The same preacher was not wyse alone, but taught the people knowlege also: he gaue good hede, sought out the groude and set forth many parables.
4 So whan I was a litle past them, I foude him whom my soule loueth. I haue gotten holde vpon him, and wyl not let him go, vntill I brynge him into my mothers house, and in to hir chambre that bare me.
16 Wash you, make you clene, put awaye yor euell thoughtes out of my sight, cease from doinge of euell and violence.
7 Thou (LORDE) cosidrest the path of ye rigtuous, whether it be right, whether the waye of ye rightuous be right.
5 And then shal the LORDE of hoostes be a ioyful crowne, and a glorious garlade vnto the remnaunt of his people.
15 He that ledeth a godly life (saye I) & speaketh the treuth: He that abhorreth to do violence and disceate: he that kepeth his hode that he touch no rewarde: which stoppeth his eares, that he heare no councel agaynst the innocent: which holdeth downe his eyes, that he se no euel.
3 Enclyne youre eares, & come vnto me, take hede & youre soule shal lyue. For I will make an euerlastinge couenaunt with you, eue the sure mercies of Dauid.
20 But the wicked are like the raginge see, that ca not rest, whose water fometh with the myre & grauel.
9 And this is ye cause yt equite is so farre fro vs, & yt rightuousnes cometh not nye vs. We loke for light, lo, it is darknesse: for ye mornynge shyne, se, we walke in ye darke. 10 We grope like ye blynde vpon ye wall, we grope euen as one yt hath none eyes. We stomble at ye noone daye, as though it were toward night: in ye fallinge places, like men yt are half deed.
26 For amonge my people are founde wicked personnes, that priuely laye snares and waite for men, to take them, and destroye them. 27 And like as a net is full of byrdes, so are their houses full of that, which they haue gotten with falsede and disceate. Herof cometh their greate substaunce and riches, 28 herof are they fat and welthy, and are runne awaye fro me with shamefull blasphemies. They ministre not the lawe, they make no ende of the fatherlesses cause, they iudge not the poore acordinge to equite.
20 Yet heare the worde of the LORDE (o ye women). And let youre eares regarde the wordes of his mouth: that ye maye lerne youre doughters to mourne, and that euery one maye teach hir neghbouresse, to make lamentacion.
23 Now I knowe (o LORDE) that is not in mas power to ordre his owne waies, or to rule his owne steppes & goinges.
16 Honoure ye LORDE youre God herein, or he take his light from you, and or euer youre fete stomble in darknesse at ye hill: lest whe ye loke for the light, he turne it in to ye shadowe and darknesse of death.
9 Amonge all thinges lyuynge, man hath the most disceatfull and vnsercheable hert. Who shall then knowe it?
12 Wherfore, their waye shall be slippery in the darcknesse, where in they maye stacker and fall. For I will bringe a plage vpon them, euen the yeare of their visitacion, saieth the LORDE.
9 They departed from hence in heuynes, but with ioye will I bringe them hither agayne. I will lede them by the ryuers of water in a straight waye, where they shall not stomble: For I will be Israels father, and Epraim shalbe my firstborne.
6 Beholde, (saieth the LORDE) I will heale their woundes, and make them whole: I will open them the treasure of peace and treuth.
28 For in so moch as he remembreth himself, and turneth him from all the vngodlynes, that he hath vsed, he shall lyue, and not dye.
31 Cast awaye fro you all youre vngodlynesse, that ye haue done: make you new hertes and a new sprete. Wherfore wil ye dye, O ye house of Israel?
25 thy prophetes that are in the, are sworne together to deuoure soules, like as a roaringe Lyon, that lyueth by his pray. They receaue riches and good, and make many wyddowes in ye. 26 Thy prestes breake my lawe, and defyle my Sanctuary. They put no dyfference betwene the holy and vnholy, nether discerne betwene the clene and vnclene: they turne their eyes fro my Sabbathes, and I am vnhalowed amonge them. 27 Thy rulers in the are like rauyshinge wolues, to shed bloude, and to destroye soules, for their owne covetous lucre. 28 As for thy prophetes, they dawbe with vntempered claye, they se vanities, and prophecie lies vnto them, sayenge: the LORDE God sayeth so, where as the LORDE hath not spoken 29 The people in the londe vseth wicked extorcio and robbery. They vexe the poore and nedy: and oppresse the straunger agaynst right.
3 The wyse (soch as haue taught other) shal glister, as the shyninge of heauen: and those that haue instructe the multitude vnto godlynesse, shalbe as the starres, worlde without ende.
3 Then shal we haue vnderstondinge, & endeuoure oure selues to knowe the LORDE. He shal go forth as the sprynge of the daye, and come vnto vs as the euenynge and mornynge rayne vpon the earth.
4 Heare this, O ye yt oppresse the poore, and destroye the nedy in ye londe, sayenge: 5 Whan will the new moneth be gone, that we maye sell vytale, and ye Sabbath, that we maye haue scarcenesse of corne: to make the bu?shel lesse, and the Sycle greater? 6 We shall set vp false waightes, yt we maye get the poore vnder vs with their money, and the nedy also for shues: yee let vs sell the chaffe for corne.
1 Wo vnto them, that ymagyn to do harme, and deuyse vngraciousnesse vpon their beddes, to perfourme it in ye cleare daye: for their power is agaynst God.
5 And as concernynge the prophetes that disceaue my people, thus the LORDE sayeth agaynst them: When they haue eny thinge to byte vpon, then they preach that all shalbe well: but yf a man put not some thinge in to their mouthes, they preach of warre agaynst him.
12 amonge those that be full off riches vnrightuously gotten: where the citesyns deale with falsede, speake lyes, and haue disceatfull tunges in their mouthes?
3 Hir rulers within her are as roaringe lyons: hir iudges are as wolues in the euenynge, which leaue nothinge behynde them till the morow.
5 Considre now youre owne wayes in youre hertes (saieth ye LORDE of hoostes)
7 Thus saieth the LORDE of hoostes: Cosidre youre owne wayes in youre hertes,
10 Morouer, vpon the house off Dauid and vpon the citesyns off Ierusalem, will I poure out the sprete of grace and prayer: so that they shal loke vpon me, whom they haue pearsed: and they shall bewepe him, as men mourne for their only begotten sonne: Yee and be sory for him, as men are sory for their first childe.
14 Ye are the light of the worlde. A cite that is set on an hill, can not be hid:
16 Let youre light so shyne before men, that they maye se youre good workes, and glorify youre father which is in heauen.
45 that ye maye be the chyldern of youre father which is in heauen: for he maketh his sonne to aryse on the euel and on the good, and sendeth his rayne on the iust and vniuste.
22 The eye is the light of the body. Yf thyne eye then be syngle, all thy body shalbe ful of light:
23 And then will I knowlege vnto them: I neuer knewe you, Departe fro me, ye workers of iniquite.
44 Agayne, the kingdome of heauen is like vnto a treasure hyd in the felde, which a ma founde and hid it, and for ioye therof he wete & solde all yt he had, and bought yt felde. 45 Agayne, the kyngdome of heauen is like vnto a marchaut, yt sought good pearles: 46 & wha he had founde a precious pearle, he wete and solde all that he had, & bought it.
14 Let the go, they are ye blynde leaders of ye blynde. Wha one blinde leadeth another, they fall both i ye diche.
19 For out of ye hert come euell thoughtes murthur, breakynge of wedlocke, whordome theft, false witnesse, blasphemy.
5 Whyle he yet spake, beholde, a bright cloude ouershadowed them: and lo, there came a voyce out of the cloude, saienge: This is my deare sonne, in whom I delyte, heare him.
13 Wo vnto you Scrybes and Pharises, ye ypocrytes, that shut vp the kyngdome of heauen before men: Ye come not in youre selues, nether suffre ye them to enter, that wolde be in.
38 Watch and praye, that ye fal not in to temptacion. The sprete is wyllinge, but ye flesh is weake.
45 A good ma out of ye good treasure of his hert, bryngeth forth yt which is good: and an euell ma out of the euell treasure of his hert, bryngeth forth that which is euell. For of the abundaunce of the hert, the mouth speaketh.
42 there is but one thinge nedefull. Mary hath chosen a good parte, which shal not be taken awaye from her.
20 But God sayde vnto him: Thou foole, this night shal they requyre thy soule from the, and whose shal it be that thou hast prepared?
66 And whan it was daye, there gathered together the Elders of the people, the hye prestes and scrybes, and led him vp before, their councell, and sayde:
27 And he beganne at Moses and at all the prophetes, and expounded vnto them all the scriptures, that were spoken of him. 28 And they drue nye vnto the towne, which they wete vnto, and he made as though he wolde haue gone farther. 29 And they compelled him, and sayde: Abyde with vs, for it draweth towardes night, and the daye is farre passed. And he wente in to tary with the.
39 Many Samaritans of the same cite beleued on him, for the sayenge of the woman, which testified: He hath tolde me all that euer I dyd. 40 Now whan the Samaritans came to him, they besought him, that he wolde tary with them. And he abode there two dayes, 41 and many mo beleued because of his worde, 42 and sayde vnto the woman: We beleue now hence forth, not because of thy sayenge, we haue herde him oureselues, and knowe, that this of a trueth is Christ the Sauioure of the worlde.
68 Then answered Simon Peter: LORDE, Whither shal we go? Thou hast the wordes of euerlastinge life:
12 Then spake Iesus agayne vnto them, and sayde: I am the light of the worlde. He that foloweth me, shal not walke in darknesse, but shal haue the light of life.
10 But he that walketh in the night, stobleth: for there is no light in him.
35 Then sayde Iesus vnto them: The light is yet a litle whyle with you, walke whyle ye haue the light, that the darknesse fall not vpo you. He that walketh in the darknesse, woteth not whither he goeth.
50 And I knowe that his commaundement is life euerlastinge. Therfore loke what I speake, that speake I eue so, as the father hath sayde vnto me.
28 Then led they Iesus from Caiphas in to the comon hall. And it was early in the mornynge. And they them selues wete not in to the como hall, lest they shulde be defyled, but yt they might eate ye Pascall lambe.
42 They contynued in the Apostles doctryne, and in the felashippe, and in breakynge of bred, and in prayer.
23 Which whan he was come thither, & sawe the grace of God, he was glad, and exorted them all, that with purpose of hert they wolde contynue in the LORDE.
10 and sayde: O thou childe of the deuell, full of all futtyltie and all disceatfulnesse, and enemye of all righteousnes, thou ceassest not to peruerte the straight wayes of ye LORDE.
32 Why so? Euen because they soughte it not out of faith, but as it were out of the deseruynge of workes. For they haue stombled at the stomblinge stone. 33 As it is wrytten: Beholde, I laye in Sion a stone to stoble at, and a rocke to be offended at: and who so euer beleueth on him, shal not be confounded.
9 Let loue be without dissimulacion. Hate that which is euell: Cleue vnto that which is good.
16 Be of one mynde amonge youre selues. Be not proude in youre awne consaytes, but make youre selues equall to them of ye lowe sorte. Be not wyse in youre awne opinions
33 Be not ye disceaued. Euell speakinges corruppe good maners.
18 But now the glory of ye LORDE apeareth in vs all with open face, and we are chaunged into the same ymage, from one clearnes to another, eue as of the sprete of the LORDE.
17 that Christ maye dwell in youre hertes by faith, that ye beynge roted and grounded in loue,
25 Wherfore put awaye lyenge, and speake euery man the trueth vnto his neghboure, for as moch as we are membres one of another. 26 Be angrie, but synne not. Let not ye Sonne go downe vpo youre wrath: 27 nether geue place to the bacbyter. 28 He that hath stollen, let him steale nomore: but let him laboure rather, and do some good with his hondes, that he maye haue to geue vnto him that nedeth. 29 Let no filthy communicacion proceade out of youre mouth, but that which is good to edifye withall, wha nede is, that it be gracious to heare. 30 And greue not the holy sprete of God, wherwith ye are sealed vnto ye daye of redempcion. 31 Let all bytternes, and fearsnes, and wrath, and roaringe, & cursed speakynge be farre fro you with all maliciousnes.
11 and haue no fellishippe with ye vnfrutefull workes of darknes, but rather rebuke the.
15 Take hede therfore how ye walke circumspectly, not as the vnwyse, but as ye wyse,
17 Wherfore be not ye vnwyse, but vnderstonde what the wil of the LORDE is,
4 And ye fathers, prouoke not youre children vnto wrath, but brynge the vp in the nourtoure and informacion of the LORDE.
15 that ye maye be fautles and pure, and the childre of God without rebuke, in the myddes of ye croked and peruerse nacion, amonge whom se that ye shyne as lightes in the worlde,
8 Yee I thynke all thinges but losse, for that excellent knowleges sake of Christ Iesu my LORDE: for whom I haue counted all thinge losse, and do iudge them but donge, that I mighte wynne Christ,
8 But now put all awaye fro you: wrath, fearcenesse, maliciousnes, cursed speakynge, fylthie wordes out of youre mouth.
11 as ye knowe, how that as a father his children, euen so exhorted we and comforted and besoughte euery one of you, 12 that ye wolde walke worthely before God, which hath called you vnto his kyngdome & glory. 13 For this cause thanke we God without ceassynge, because that wha ye receaued of vs the worde of the preachinge of God, ye receaued it not as ye worde of men, but (eue as it is of a trueth) the worde of God, which worketh in you that beleue.
13 that yor hertes maye be stable and vnblameable in holynes before God oure father, at the commynge of oure LORDE Iesus Christ with all his sayntes.
10 and with all deceauablenes of vnrighteousnes amonge them that perishe, because they receaued not the loue of ye trueth, that they might haue bene saued.
3 But the LORDE is faithfull, which shal stablyshe you and kepe you from euell.
15 For this is a true sayenge, and by all meanes worthy to be receaued, that Christ Iesus came in to ye worlde to saue synners, of whom I am chefe.
6 Yf thou shalt put the brethren in remembraunce of these thinges, thou shalt be a good mynister of Iesu Christ, which hast bene norished vp in the wordes of faith and of good doctryne, which thou hast folowed hither to.
5 vayne disputacios of soch men as haue corrupte myndes, and are robbed of the trueth, which thynke that godlynes is lucre: From soch separate thy selfe.
5 whan I call to remembraunce the vnfayned faith that is in the, which dwelt first in thy graundemother Lois, and in thy mother Eunica: And am assured, that it dwelleth in ye also.
15 And for so moch as thou hast knowne holy scripture of a childe, the same is able to make ye wyse vnto saluacion thorow the faith in Christ Iesu.
9 and soch one as cleueth vnto the true worde of doctryne: that he maye be able to exhorte with wholsome lernynge, & to improue them that saye agaynst it.
1 Wherfore we ought to geue the more hede vnto the thinges which we haue herde, lest we perisshe.
7 After thou haddest for a litle season made him lower the ye angels, thou crownedst him with honoure and glory, and hast set him aboue the workes of thy handes. 8 Thou hast put all thinges in subieccion vnder his fete. In that he subdued all thinges vnto him, he lefte nothinge that is not put vnder him. 9 Neuertheles now se we not all thinges yet subdued vnto him. But him, which for a litle season was made lesse then the angels, we se that it is Iesus: which is crowned with honoure and glory for the sufferynge of death, that he by the grace of God, shulde taist of death for all men.
9 And he beynge made perfecte, became the cause of euerlastinge saluacio, vnto all the yt obeye him,
13 and se that ye haue straight steppes vnto youre fete, lest eny haltinge turne you out of the waye, yee let it rather be healed.
15 ad loke well, that no ma be destitute of the grace of God, lest there sprynge vp eny bytter rote, and cause disquyetnes, and therby many be defyled:
5 Yf eny of you lacke wyssdome, let him axe of God, which geueth to all men indifferentlie, and casteth no man in the teth: and it shal be geue him.
21 Wherfore laye aparte all fylthines, all superfluite of maliciousnes, & receaue with meknes ye worde yt is grafted in you, which is able to saue youre soules.
26 Yf eny man amonge you seme deuoute, & refrayne not his toge: but deceaue his awne herte, this mannes deuocion is in vayne.
4 Beholde, the hyre of the labourers which haue reped downe youre feldes (which hyer is of you kept backe by fraude) cryeth: and the cryes of the which haue reped, are entred in to the eares of the LORDE Sabaoth. 5 Ye haue liued in pleasure on the earth and in wantannes. Ye haue norysshed youre hertes, as in a daye of slaughter.
1 Wherfore laye asyde all maliciousnes and all gyle, and ypocrisye, and envye, and all bacbytinge,
8 and a stone to stomble at, and a rock to be offended at, namely in the which stomble at ye worde, and beleue not that wheron they were set.
4 but let ye inwarde ma of ye hert be vncorrupte wt a meke & a quyete sprete, which before God is moch set by.
4 & whan the chefe shepherde shal appeare, ye shal receaue the vncorruptible crowne of glory.
10 But ye God of all grace, which hath called you to his euerlastinge glory in Christ Iesu, shal his owne selfe make you perfecte, which suffre a litle season: eue he shal settle, strength, and stablish you.
19 We haue also a sure worde of prophecie, and ye do well that ye take hede thervnto, as vnto a lighte that shyneth in a darke place vntyll the daye dawne, and the daye starre aryse in youre hertes.
14 hauynge eyes full of aduoutrye, and ca not ceasse from synne, entysinge vnstable soules: hauynge an hert exercysed wt couetousnes: they are cursed children,
18 But growe in grace, and in the knowlege of oure LORDE and Sauioure Iesus Christ. To him be prayse now and for euer, Amen.
11 But he yt hateth his brother, is in darknes, and walketh in darknes, and can not tell whither he goeth, for ye darknes hath blynded his eyes.
13 I knowe thy workes, and where thou dwellest, euen where Sathans seat is, and thou kepest my name, & hast not denyed my faith. And in my dayes Antipas was a faithfull witnes of myne, which was slayne amonge you, where Sathan dwelleth.
21 To him that ouercomth, will I graute to sytt with me on my seate, eue as I ouercam and haue sytte with my father on his seate.
11 And they ouercame him by the bloude of the lambe, and by the worde of their testimony, and they loued not their lyues vnto the deeth.
23 and the cite hath no nede of the Sonne, nether of the mone to lyghten it. For the bryghtnes of God doth light it: and the lambe is the lyght of it.
5 And there shalbe no night there, and they nede no candle, nether light of the Sonne: for the LORDE God geueth the light, and they shal reygne for euermore.
