Romans 2:1

1 Therfore canst thou not excuse thyselfe (O ma) who soeuer thou be that iudgest: for loke wherin thou iudgest another, thou condemnest thy selfe, in so moch as thou that iudgest, doest euen the same.

James 1:12-15

12 Happy is the man that endureth in teptacion, for when he is tryed, he shal receaue the crowne of life, which the LORDE hath promised to them that loue him. 13 Let no man saye when he is tempted, yt he is tempted of God. For God tepteth not vnto euell, nether tepteth he eny man. 14 But euery ma is tepted, drawne awaye, & entysed of his awne cocupiscece. 15 The whe lust hath conceaued, she bringeth forth synne, & synne when it is fynished, bringeth forth deeth.

Romans 6:1-23

1 What shal we saye then? Shal we contynue in synne, that there maye be abundaunce of grace? 2 God forbyd. How shal we lyue in synne, yt are deed from it? 3 Knowe ye not, that all we which are baptysed into Iesu Christ, are baptysed in to his death? 4 Therfore are we buried wt him by baptyme in to death, that, like as Christ was raysed vp from the deed by the glory of the father, euen so we also shulde walke in a new life. 5 For yf we be grafted wt him vnto like death, then shal we be like the resurreccion also: 6 For so moch as we knowe, that oure olde man is crucified with him, that the synfull body mighte ceasse, that hence forth we shulde serue synne no more. 7 For he that is deed, is made righteous fro synne 8 But yf we be deed with Christ, we beleue, that we shal lyue also with him, 9 and are sure, that Christ raysed from the deed, dyeth nomore: Death shal haue nomore power ouer him. 10 For as touchinge that he dyed, he dyed cocernynge synne once: but as touchinge that he lyueth, he lyueth vnto God. 11 Likewyse ye also, counte youre selues to be euen deed concernynge synne, and to lyue vnto God thorow Iesus Christ oure LORDE. 12 Let not synne reigne therfore in youre mortall bodye, that ye shulde obeye vnto the lustes of it. 13 ether geue ye ouer youre membres vnto synne to be wapens of vnrighteousnes, but geue ouer youre selues vnto God, as they that off deed are become lyuynge, and youre membres vnto God to be wapes off righteousnes. 14 For synne shal not haue power ouer you, in so moch as ye are not vnder the lawe, but vnder grace. 15 How then? Shal we synne, because we are not vnder ye lawe, but vnder grace? God forbyd. 16 Knowe ye not, that loke vnto who ye geue ouer youre selues as seruauntes to obeye, his seruauntes ye are to whom ye obey, whether it be of synne vnto death, or of obediece vnto righteousnes? 17 But God be thanked, that though ye haue bene the seruauntes of synne, ye are now yet obedient of herte to the ensample off the doctryne, whervnto ye are commytted. 18 For now that ye are made fre from synue, ye are become the seruauntes of righteousnes. 19 I wil speake grosly, because of the weaknes of youre flesh. Like as ye haue geuen ouer youre membres to the seruyce of vnclennesse, from one wickednesse to another: Eue so now also geue ouer youre membres to the seruyce of righteousnesse, that they maye be holy. 20 For whan ye were the seruauntes of synne, ye were lowse from righteousnes. 21 What frute had ye at that tyme in those thinges, wherof ye are now ashamed? For the ende of soch thinges is death. 22 But now that ye be fre from synne, and are become the seruauntes of God, ye haue youre frute that ye shulde be holy: but the ende is euerlastinge life. 23 For death is the rewarde of synne, but the gifte of God is euerlastinge life.

Psalms 25:21

21 Let innocency and rightuous dealinge wayte vpon me, for my hope is in the.

1 Corinthians 13:1-13

1 Though I spake with the tunges of men and angels, and yet had not loue, I were euen as sowndinge brasse, or as a tynklinge Cymball. 2 And though I coulde prophecy, & vnderstode all secretes, and all knowlege, and had all faith, so that I coulde moue moutaynes out of their places, and yet had not loue, I were nothinge. 3 And though I bestowed all my goodes to fede ye poore, and though I gaue my body euen that I burned, and yet haue not loue, it profiteth me nothinge. 4 Loue is pacient & curteous, loue envyeth not, loue doth not frowardly, is not puft vp, dealeth not dishonestly, 5 seketh not hir awne, is not prouoked vnto anger, thynketh not euell, 6 reioyseth not ouer iniquyte, but reioyseth in the trueth, 7 beareth all thinges, beleueth all thinges, hopeth all thinges, suffreth all thinges. 8 Though prophecienges fayle, or tunges ceasse, or knowlege perishe, yet loue falleth neuer awaye. 9 For oure knowlege is vnparfecte, and oure prophecienge is vnparfecte. 10 But wha that which is perfecte, commeth, then shal the vnparfecte be done awaye. 11 Whan I was a childe, I spake as a childe, I vnderstode as a childe, I ymagined as a childe. But as soone as I was a man, I put awaye childishnes. 12 Now we se thorow a glasse in a darke speakynge, but the shal we se face to face. Now I knowe vnperfectly: but the shal I knowe eue as I am knowne. 13 Now abydeth faith, hope, loue, these thre: but the greatest of these is loue.

Romans 13:8-10

8 Owe nothinge to eny man, but to loue one another. For he that loueth another, hath fulfylled the lawe. 9 For where it is sayde: ( Thou shalt not breake wedlocke: thou shalt not kyll: thou shalt not steale: thou shalt not beare false witnesse: thou shalt not lust) and yf there be eny other commaundement, it is compreheded in this worde.Thou shalt loue thy neghboure as thy selfe. 10 Loue doth his neghboure no euell. Therfore is loue ye fulfillynge of the lawe.

2 Timothy 3:16-17

16 For all scripture geue by inspiracion of God, is profitable to teach, to improue, to amende, and to instructe in righteousnes, 17 that a man off God maye be perfecte, and prepared vnto all good workes.

1 Corinthians 6:9-11

9 Knowe ye not that ye vnrighteous shal not inheret the kyngdome of God? Be not disceaued. Nether whoremongers, ner worshippers off ymages, ner breakers off wedlocke, ner weaklinges, nether abusers of them selues with mankynde, 10 ner theues, nether the couetous, ner drokardes, ner cursed speakers, ner extorcioners shal inheret the kyngdome of God. 11 And soch haue some of you bene, but ye are wasshed, ye are sanctified, ye are made righteous by the name of the LORDE Iesus, and by the sprete of oure God.
