Psalms 119:105

105 Thy worde is a lanterne vnto my fete & a light vnto my pathes.

Matthew 10:16

16 Beholde, I sende you forth as shepe amoge wolues. Be ye therfore wyse as serpentes, and innocent as doues.

Luke 14:7-11

7 And he tolde a symilitude vnto ye gestes, wha he marked how they chose the hyest seates, & sayde vnto the: 8 Whan thou art bydde of eny man to a weddynge, syt not downe in the hyest rowme, lest a more honorable man the thou be bydde of him, 9 and he that bade both the and him, come & saye vnto ye: geue this ma rowme, and thou the begynne with shame to take ye lowest rowme. 10 But rather wha thou art bydde, go and syt in ye lowest rowme, that wha he that bade the, cometh, he maye saye vnto the: Frende, syt vp hyer: then shalt thou haue worshipe in the presence of them that syt at the table. 11 For who so euer exalteth himself, shalbe brought lowe: and he yt humbleth himself, shalbe exalted.

Matthew 23:1-39

1 Then spake Iesus vnto ye people and to his disciples, 2 and sayde: The scrybes & Pharises are set downe vpon Moses seate. 3 Therfore whatsoeuer they bid you obserue, that obserue and do, but after their workes shal ye not do, 4 for they saye & do not. For they bynde heuy and intollerable burthens, and laye them vpon mens shulders: But they them selues wil not heaue at them with one of their fyngers. 5 All their workes do they to be sene of men. They set abrode their Philateries, and make large borders vpon their garmentes, 6 and loue to syt vppermost at the table, and to haue the chefe seates in the synagoges, 7 and loue to be saluted in the market, and to be called of me Rabbi. 8 But ye shal not suffre youre selues to be called Rabbi, for one is youre master, euen Christ, and all ye are brethren. 9 And call no man father vpon earth, for one is youre father, which is in heaue. 10 And ye shal not suffre youre selues to be called masters, for one is youre master, namely, Christ. 11 He that is greatest amoge you, shalbe youre seruaunt. 12 For who so exalteth himself, shal be brought lowe: and he that humbleth himself, shalbe exalted. 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. 14 Wo vnto you Scrybes and Pharises, ye ypocrytes, that deuoure wyddowes houses, and that vnder the culoure of prayenge longe prayers, therfore shal ye receaue ye greater damnacion. 15 Wo vnto you Scrybes and Pharises, ye ypocrytes, which compasse see and lode to make one Proselyte: and whan he is become one, ye make of him a childe of hell, two folde more then ye youre selues are. 16 Wo vnto you blyndegydes, which saye: Who so euer sweareth by the temple, that is nothinge: but who so euer sweareth by the golde of the temple, he is giltie. 17 Ye fooles and blynde, whether is greater? the golde, or the teple that sanctifieth the golde? 18 And who so euer sweareth by the altare, that is nothinge: but who so euer sweareth by the offeringe that is vpo it, he is giltye. 19 Ye fooles and blynde, whether is greater? the offeringe, or the altare that sanctifieth the offerynge? 20 Therfore who so sweareth by the altare, sweareth by the same, and by all that is theron: 21 and who so sweareth by the temple, sweareth by the same, and by him that dwelleth therin. 22 And who so sweareth by heauen, sweareth by the seate of God, and by him that sytteth theron. 23 Wo vnto you scrybes and Pharises, ye ypocrytes, which tythe Mynt, Anyse and Commyn, and leaue the waightier matters of the lawe behynde: namely, iudgment, mercy, and fayth. These ought to haue bene done, and not to leaue the other behynde. 24 O ye blynde gydes, which strayne out a gnat, but swalowe vp a Camell. 25 Wo vnto you scrybes and Pharises, ye Ypocrytes, which make cleane the vttersyde of the cuppe and platter, but within are ye full of robbery and excesse. 26 Thou blynde Pharise, clense first the in syde of the cuppe and platter, that the out syde maye be cleane also. 27 Wo vnto you scrybes and Pharises, ye Ypocrites, which be like vnto paynted Sepulcres, that appeare beutyfull outwarde, but within they are full of deed mens bones and all fylthines. 28 Euen so are ye also: Outwarde ye appeare righteous vnto men, but within ye are full of ypocrisye and iniquyte. 29 Wo vnto you scrybes and Pharises, ye ypocrites, which buylde the tombes of the prophetes, and garnysh the sepulcres of the righteous, 30 and saye: Yf we had bene in oure fathers tyme, we wolde not haue bene partakers with them in the bloude of the prophetes. 31 Therfore ye be wytnesses vnto youre selues, that ye are the children of them, which slew the prophetes. 32 Go to, fulfyll ye also the measure of youre fathers. 33 O ye serpentes, O ye generacion of vypers, how wyl ye escape the damnacion of Hell? 34 Therfore beholde, I sende vnto you prophetes and wysemen, and scrybes, and some of them shal ye kyll and crucifye, and some of them shal ye scourge in youre synagoges, and persecute them from cite to cite: 35 that vpon you maye come all the righteous bloude which hath bene shed vpon ye earth, from the bloude of righteous Abel, vnto ye bloude of Zachary ye sonne of Barachias, whom ye slew betwene the temple and the altare. 36 Verely I saye vnto you: All these thinges shal light vpo this generacion. 37 O Ierusalem Ierusalem, thou that slayest the prophetes, and stonest them that are sent vnto the: How oft wolde I haue gathered thy children together, euen as the henne gathereth hir chekens vnder hir wynges, and ye wolde not? 38 Beholde, youre habitacion shalbe left vnto you desolate. 39 For I saye vnto you: Ye shal not se me hence forth, tyll ye saye: Blessed be he, that commeth in the name of the LORDE.

Matthew 25:1-46

1 Then shal the kyngdome of heauen be like vnto ten virgins, which toke their lapes, and wente forth to mete the brydegome. 2 But fyue of them were foolish, and fyue were wyse. 3 The foolish toke their lapes, neuertheles they toke none oyle with them. 4 But the wyse toke oyle in their vessels with their lampes. 5 Now whyle the brydegrome taried, they slombred all and slepte. 6 But at mydnight there was a crye made: Beholde, the brydegrome commeth, go youre waye out for to mete him. 7 Then all those virgins arose, and prepared their lampes. 8 But the foolish sayde vnto the wyse: geue vs of youre oyle, for oure lapes are gone out. 9 Then answered the wyse, and sayde: Not so, lest there be not ynough for vs and you, but go rather vnto them that sell, and bye for youre selues. 10 And whyle they wente to bye, the brydegrome came: and they that were readye, wente in with him vnto the mariage, and the gate was shut vp. 11 At ye last came ye other virgins also, and sayde: LORDE LORDE, opo vnto vs. 12 But he answered, and sayde: Verely I saye vnto you: I knowe you not. 13 Watch ye therfore, for ye knowe nether the daye ner yet the houre, whan ye sonne of man shal come. 14 Like wyse as a certayne ma ready to take his iourney into a straunge countre, called his seruautes, and delyuered his goodes vnto the. 15 And vnto one he gaue fyue talentes, to another two, and to another one: vnto euery man after his abilyte, and straight waye departed. 16 Then he that had receaued the fyue talentes, wente and occupied with the same, and wanne other fyue talentes. 17 Likewyse he yt receaued two talentes, wane other two also. 18 But he that receaued ye one wente and dygged a pyt in the earth, and hyd his lordes money. 19 After a longe season the lorde of those seruauntes came, and rekened with them. 20 Then came he that had receaued fyue talentes, and brought other fyue talentes, and sayde: Syr, thou delyuerdst vnto me fyue talentes:Beholde, with them haue I wonne fyue taletes mo. 21 Then sayde his lorde vnto hi: wel thou good & faithfull seruaunt, thou hast bene faithfull ouer litle, I wil set the ouer moch: entre thou in to the ioye of thy lorde. 22 The came he also that had receaued two talentes, and sayde: Syr, thou delyuerdst vnto me two talentes: Beholde, I haue wonne two other taletes with the. 23 His lorde sayde vnto him: Wel thou good and faithfull seruaut, thou hast bene faithfull ouer litle, I wil set the ouer moch: entre thou in to the ioye of thy lorde. 24 Then he that had receaued the one talet, came and sayde: Syr, I knew that thou art an hard man: thou reapest where thou hast not sowen, and gatherest where thou hast not strowed, 25 and so I was afrayed, and wete and hyd thy talent in the earth: lo, there thou hast thine owne. 26 But his lorde answered, and sayde vnto him: Thou euell and slouthfull seruaunt, knewest thou that I reape where I sowed not, and gather where I strawed not? 27 Thou shuldest therfore haue had my money to the chaungers, and then at my commynge shulde I haue receaued myne owne with vauntage. 28 Therfore take the talent fro him, and geue it vnto him that hath ten talentes. 29 For who so hath, to him shalbe geuen, and he shal haue abundaunce. But who so hath not, fro him shalbe take awaye euen that he hath. 30 And cast the vnprofitable seruaunt in to vtter darcknes: there shalbe waylinge and gnasshinge of teth. 31 But whan the sonne of man shal come in his glory, and all holy angels with him, then shal he syt vpon the seate of his glory. 32 And all people shalbe gathered before him: and he shal separate them one from another as a shepherde deuydeth the shepe from ye goates. 33 And he shal set ye shepe on his right honde, and the goates on the lefte. 34 Then shal the kynge saye vnto them that shalbe on his right honde: Come hither ye blessed of my father, inheret ye ye kingdome, which is prepared for you from the begynnynge of the worlde. 35 For I was hongrie, and ye gaue me meate: I was thirstie, and ye gaue me drynke: I was harbourlesse, and ye lodged me: 36 I was naked, & ye clothed me: I was sicke, and ye vysited me: I was in preson, and ye came vnto me. 37 Then shal the righteous answere him, & saye: LORDE, whe sawe we the hogrie, and fed the? Or thirstie, and gaue the drynke? 38 When sawe we the herbourlesse, and lodged the? Or naked, and clothed ye? 39 Or whe sawe we ye sicke or in preson, and came vnto the? 40 And the kynge shal answer and saye vnto them: Verely I saye vnto you: Loke what ye haue done vnto one of the least of these my brethren, the same haue ye done vnto me. 41 Then shal he saye also vnto them that shalbe on the left hande: Departe fro me ye cursed in to the euerlastinge fyre, which is prepared for the deuell and his angels. 42 For I was hogrie, and ye gaue me no meate: I was thirstye, and ye gaue me no drynke: 43 I was herbourlesse, and ye lodged me not: I was naked, and ye clothed me not: I was sicke and in preson, and ye vysited me not. 44 Then shal they also answere hi, and saye: LORDE, when sawe we the hogrie, or thyrstie, or herbourlesse, or naked, or sicke, or in preson, and haue not mynistred vnto the? 45 The shal he answere them, and saye: Verely I saye vnto you: Loke what ye haue not done vnto one of the leest of these, the same haue ye not done vnto me. 46 And these shal go in to euerlastinge payne, but the righteous in to euerlastinge life.

Romans 12:19

19 Dearly beloued, auenge not youre selues, but geue rowme vnto the wrath off God. For it is wrytte: Vengeaunce is myne, and I wil rewarde, sayeth ye LORDE.

1 John 4:16

16 and we haue knowne and beleued the loue that God hath to vs. God is loue, and he that dwelleth in loue dwelleth in God, and God in him.

Proverbs 13:1-25

1 A wyse sonne wyll receaue his fathers warnynge, but he yt is scornefull, wyll not heare when he is reproued. 2 A good ma shal enioye the frute of his mouth, but he that hath a frowarde mynde, shalbe spoyled. 3 He that kepeth his mouth, kepeth his life: but who so speaketh vnaduysed, fyndeth harme. 4 The slogarde wolde fayne haue, and can not get his desyre: but the soule of the diligent shal haue plenty. 5 A righteous man abhorreth lyes, but the vngodly shameth both other and himself. 6 Righteousnesse kepeth the innocet in the waye, but vngodlynesse shal ouerthrowe the synner. 7 Some men are riche, though they haue nothinge: agayne, some me are poore hauynge greate riches. 8 With goodes euery man delyuereth his life, and the poore wyl not be reproued. 9 The light of the righteous maketh ioyfull, but the candle of the vngodly shal be put out. 10 Amonge the proude there is euer strife, but amonge those that do all thinges with aduysement, there is wy?dome. 11 Hastely gotte goodes are soone spent, but they that be gathered together with the hande, shal increase. 12 Longe tarienge for a thinge that is dyfferred, greueth ye herte: but when the desyre commeth, it is a tre of life. 13 Who so despyseth the worde, destroyeth himself: but he that feareth the comaundement, shal haue peace. 14 The lawe is a wel of life vnto the wyse, that it maye kepe him from the snares of death. 15 Good vnderstondinge geueth fauoure, but harde is the waye of the despysers. 16 A wyse man doth all thinges with discrecion, but a foole wil declare his foly. 17 An vngodly messauger bryngeth myschefe, but a faithfull embassitoure is wholsome. 18 He that thinketh scorne to be refourmed, commeth to pouerte and shame: but who so receaueth correccion, shal come to honoure. 19 When a desyre is brought to passe, it delyteth the soule: but fooles abhorre him that eschueth euell. 20 He that goeth in the company of wyse men, shal be wyse: but who so is a copanyo of fooles, shal be hurte. 21 Myschefe foloweth vpon synners, but the rightuous shal haue a good rewarde. 22 Which their childers childre shal haue in possessio, for the riches of the synner is layed vp for ye iust. 23 There is plenteousnesse of fode in the feldes of the poore, & shalbe increased out of measure. 24 He that spareth the rodde, hateth his sonne: but who so loueth him, holdeth him euer in nurtoure. 25 The rightuous eateth, and is satisfied, but ye bely of the vngodly hath neuer ynough.

Matthew 20:1-16

1 The kyngdome of heauen is like vnto an housholder, which wete out early in the mornynge, to hyre labourers in to his vyniarde. 2 And wha he had agreed with the labourers for a peny a daye, he sent the in to his vynyarde. 3 And aboute ye thirde houre he wente out, and sawe other stondinge ydle in the market place, 4 and sayde vnto them: Go ye also in to my vynyarde, & what so euer is right, I wil geue it you. And they wete their waye. 5 Agayne, he wete out aboute the sixte and nyenth houre, and dyd likewyse, 6 And aboute the eleuenth houre he wete out, and founde other stodynge ydle, and sayde vnto them: Why stonde ye here all the daye ydle? 7 They sayde vnto him: because no man hath hyred us. He saide vnto the: Go ye also in to my vinyarde, and loke what is right, ye shal haue it. 8 Now whan euen was come, the lorde of the vynyarde sayde vnto his stewarde: Call the labourers, and geue them their hyre, begynnynge from the last vnto ye first. 9 Then they that were hyred aboute the eleuenth houre, came and receaued euery man a peny. 10 But whan the first came, they supposed that they shulde receaue more: and they also receaued euery man a peny. 11 And whan they had receaued it, they murmured agaynst the housholder, 12 and sayde: These last haue wrought but one houre, and thou hast made the equall vnto us, which haue borne the burthen and heate of the daye. 13 He answered and sayde vnto one of them: frende, I do ye no wronge: diddest not thou agree with me for a peny? 14 Take that thine is, and go thy waye. I wil geue vnto this last also, like as vnto the. 15 Or haue I not power, to do as me listeth with myne owne? Is thine eye euell, because I am good? 16 So the last shalbe the first, & the first the last. For many are called, but few are chosen.

Luke 4:18

18 The sprete of the LORDE is with me, because he hath anoynted me: to preach the Gospell vnto ye poore hath he sent me: to heale the broken harted: to preach delyuerauce to the captyue, and sight to the blynde: and frely to set at liberty them that are brused:

1 Timothy 5:8

8 But yf there be eny man that prouydeth not for his awne, and specially for them of his houssholde, the same hath denyed the faith, and is worse then an infydele.

Ephesians 4:1-32

1 I therfore which am presoner in the LORDE, exhorte you, that ye walke as it becometh yor callinge wherin ye are called, 2 with all humblenes off mynde and mekenes, and longe sufferinge, forbearinge one another in loue, 3 and be diligent to kepe the vnite of the sprete thorow the bonde of peace. 4 One body and one sprete, eue as ye are called in one hope of youre callynge. 5 One LORDE, one faith, one baptyme, 6 one God and father of vs all, which is aboue all, and thorow all, and in you all. 7 Vnto euery one of vs is geuen grace, acordinge to the measure off the gifte off Christ. 8 Therfore sayeth he: He is gone vp an hye, and hath led awaye captiuyte captyue, and hath geue giftes vnto men. 9 That he wente, vp what is it, but that he first came downe in to ye lowest partes of ye earth? 10 He that came downe, is euen the same which is gone vp aboue all heauens, to fulfill all. 11 And ye same hath set some to be Apostles, some to be prophetes, some to be Euangelistes, some to be shepherdes & teachers, 12 wherby the sayntes mighte be coupled together thorow comen seruyce to the edifienge of ye body of Christ, 13 tyll we all come vnto one maner of faith and knowlege of the sonne of God, and become a perfecte man in to the measure of the perfecte age of Christ 14 that we be nomore children, waueringe & caried aboute with euery wynde of doctryne thorow the wickednes of men and craftynes, wherby they laye awayte for vs to disceaue vs. 15 But let vs folowe the trueth in loue, and in all thinges growe in him, which is the heade, euen Christ, 16 in whom all the body is coupled together, and one membre hangeth by another thorow out all ye ioyntes. Wherby one mynistreth vnto another (acordinge to the operacion as euery membre hath his measure) and maketh, that ye body groweth to the edifienge of it selfe in loue. 17 This I saye therfore, and testifye in the LORDE, that ye walke nomore as ye other Heythen walke in the vanite of their mynde, 18 blynded in their vnderstondinge, beynge straungers fro the life which is in God thorow the ignoraunce that is in them, because of the blyndnes of their hert: 19 which beynge past repentaunce, haue geue them selues ouer vnto wantonnes, to worke all maner of vnclennes euen with gredynesse. 20 But ye haue not so learned Christ, 21 yf so be that ye haue herde of him, & are taught in him, euen as the trueth is in Iesu. 22 So then as concernynge the conuersacion in tyme past laye from you that olde man which marreth himselfe thorow disceauable lustes: 23 but be ye renued in the sprete of youre mynde, 24 and put on that new man, which is shapen after God, in true righteousnes and holynes. 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. 32 But be ye curteous one to another, mercifull, and forgeue one another, eue as God hath forgeuen you in Christ.

2 Thessalonians 3:12

12 But them that are soche, we commaunde and exhorte by oure LORDE Iesus Christ, that they worke with quyetnes, and eate their awne bred.

James 4:6

6 but geueth more grace.

2 Thessalonians 3:10

10 And whan we were wt you, this we warned you of, that yf there were eny which wolde not worke, ye same shulde not eate.

James 4:1-12

1 From whence commeth warre and fightynge amonge you: come they not here hence? euen of yor volupteousnesses that rayne in youre mebres? 2 Ye lust, and haue not. Ye envie and haue indignacion, and can not obtayne. Ye fight & warre, and haue not, because ye axe not. 3 Ye axe & receaue not because ye axe amysse: eue to cosume it vpo yor voluptuousnes. 4 Ye aduouterars, & weme that breke matrimonie: knowe ye not how that the frenshippe of ye worlde is ennimite to godwarde? Whosoeuer wilbe a frende of the worlde, is made ye enemie of god. 5 Ether do ye thinke yt the scripture sayth in vayne. The sprete yt dwelleth in you, lusteth euen contrary to enuie: 6 but geueth more grace. 7 Submit youre selues to God, and resist the deuell, & he wil flye fro you. 8 Drawe nye to God & he wil drawe nye to you. Clense yor hondes ye synners, and pourge youre hertes ye wauerynge mynded. 9 Suffre affliccions: sorowe ye and wepe. Let youre laughter be turned to mornynge, and youre ioye to heuynes. 10 Cast downe youre selues before the LORDE, and he shal lift you vp. 11 Backbyte not one another, brethren. He that backbyteth his brother, and he yt iudgeth his brother, backbyteth the lawe, and iudgeth the lawe. But and yf thou iudge the lawe, thou art not an obseruer of the lawe: but a iudge. 12 There is one lawe geuer, which is able to saue and to distroye. What art thou that iudgest another man?
