John 6:50-71

50 This is that bred which commeth from heauen, that who so eateth therof, shulde not dye. 51 I am that lyuynge bred, which came downe fro heauen: Who so eateth of this bred, shal lyue for euer. And the bred that I wil geue, is my flesh which I wil geue for ye life of the worlde. 52 Then stroue the Iewes amonge them selues, and sayde: How ca this folowe geue vs his flesh to eate? 53 Iesus sayde vnto the: Verely verely I saye vnto you: Excepte ye eate ye flesh of ye sonne of man and drynke his bloude, ye haue no life in you. 54 Who so eateth my flesh, and drynketh my bloude, hath euerlastinge life: and I shal rayse him vp at the last daye. 55 For my flesh is ye very meate, and my bloude is ye very drynke. 56 Who so eateth my flesh, and drynketh my bloude, abydeth in me, and I in him. 57 As the lyuynge father hath sent me, and I lyue for the fathers sake: Euen so he that eateth me, shall lyue for my sake. 58 This is ye bred which is come fro heauen: Not as youre fathers ate Manna, and are deed. He that eateth of this bred, shal lyue for euer. 59 These thinges sayde he in the synagoge, wha he taught at Capernaum. 60 Many now of his disciples that herde this, sayde: This is an harde sayenge, who maye abyde the hearynge of it? 61 But whan Iesus perceaued in hi self, that his discipes murmured ther at he sayde vnto them: Doth this offende you? 62 What and yf ye shal se the sonne of man ascende vp thither, where he was afore? 63 It is ye sprete that quyckeneth, ye flesh profiteth nothinge. The wordes that I speake, are sprete, and are life. 64 But there are some amoge you, that beleue not. For Iesus knewe well from the begynnynge, which they were that beleued not, and who shulde betraye him. 65 And he sayde: Therfore haue I sayde vnto you: No man can come vnto me, excepte it be geuen him of my father. 66 From that tyme forth, many of his disciples wente backe, and walked nomore with him. 67 Then sayde Iesus vnto the twolue: Wyll ye also go awaye? 68 Then answered Simon Peter: LORDE, Whither shal we go? Thou hast the wordes of euerlastinge life: 69 and we haue beleued & knowne, that thou art Christ the sonne of the lyuynge God. 70 Iesus answered them. Haue I not chosen you twolue, and one of you is a deuell? 71 But he spake of Iudas Symon Iscarioth: the same betrayed him afterwarde, and was one of the twolue.

2 Corinthians 3:6

6 which hath made vs able, to be mynisters of the new Testament: not of the letter, but of the sprete. For the letter kylleth, but the sprete geueth life.

Romans 8:1-18

1 Then is there now no damnacion vnto the that are in Christ Iesu, which walke not after the flesh, but after ye sprete. 2 For ye lawe of ye sprete (yt bryngeth life i Christ Iesu) hath made me fre fro the lawe of synne & death. 3 For what vnpossible was vnto ye lawe (in as moch as it was weake because of the flesh) yt perfourmed God, & sent his sonne in ye similitude of synfull flesh, 4 & by synne daned synne in ye flesh: that the righteousnes requyred of the lawe, mighte be fulfylled in vs, which walke not after the flesh, but after the sprete. 5 For they that are fleshly, are fleshly mynded: but they that are goostly, are goostly mynded. 6 To be fleshly mynded, is death: but to be goostly mynded, is life and peace. 7 For to be fleshly mynded is enemyte agaynst. God, syth it is not subdued vnto ye lawe of God, for it can not also. 8 As for the that are fleshlye, they can not please God. 9 Howbeit ye are not fleshly, but goostly, yf so be that the sprete of God dwell in you. But who so hath not the sprete of Christ, the same is not his. 10 Neuertheles yf Christ be in you, then is the body deed because of synne. But the sprete is life for righteousnes sake. 11 Wherfore yf the sprete of him, that raysed vp Iesus from the deed, dwell in you, then shal euen he also that raysed vp Christ from the deed, quycke youre mortal bodies, because yt his sprete dwelleth in you. 12 Therfore brethre we are now detters, not to the flesh, 13 to lyue after the flesh: for yf ye lyue after ye fleshe, ye must dye: but yf ye mortyfye the dedes of the body thorow the sprete, ye shal lyue. 14 For who so euer are led by the sprete of God, 15 are Gods childre: for ye haue not receaued the sprete of bondage to feare eny more, but ye haue receaued ye sprete of adopcion, wherby we crye: Abba, deare father. 16 The same sprete certifieth oure sprete, that we are the childre of God. 17 Yf we be childre, then are we heyres also, namely the heyres of God, and heyres annexed with Christ, yf so be that we suffer together, that we maye be also glorified together. 18 For I suppose, that the affliccions off this tyme, are not worthy of ye glorye, which shalbe shewed vpon vs.

Romans 2:6-8

6 which shal rewarde euery man acordinge to his dedes: 7 namely, prayse & honoure, and vncorrupcion, vnto them that with pacience in doinge good, seke euerlastinge life: 8 But vnto them that are contencious & not obedient vnto the trueth, but obeye vnrighteousnes, shal come indignacion and wrath,

Ephesians 2:8-9

8 For by grace are ye saued thorow faith, and that not of youre selues, For it is ye gifte of God, 9 not of workes, lest eny ma shulde boast him selfe. 10 Whosoeuer shal kepe the whole lawe, and yet fayle in one poynt, he is gyltie in all.

Titus 3:5

5 not for ye dedes of righteousnes which we wroughte, but after his mercy he saued vs by the fountayne of the new byrth, and renuynge of the holy goost,

Matthew 6:1-34

1 Take hede to youre almes, that ye geue it not in the syght of men, to the intent that ye wolde be sene of them: or els, ye get no rewarde of youre father which is in heauen. 2 When soeuer therfore thou geuest thine almes, thou shalt not make a trompet to be blowen before the, as the ypocrites do in the synagoges and in the stretes, for to be praysed of me. Verely I saye vnto you: they haue their rewarde. 3 But whe thou doest almes, let not thy lefte hande knowe, what thy righte hande doth; 4 that thine almes maye be secrete: and thy father which seith in secrete, shall rewarde the openly. 5 And when thou prayest, thou shalt not be as ye ypocrytes are. For they loue to stode and praye in the synagoges, and in the corners of the stretes, to be sene of men. Verely I saie vnto you: they haue their rewarde. 6 But when thou prayest, entre in to thy chamber, and shut thy dore to the, & praye to thy father which is in secrete: and thy father which seith in secrete, shall rewarde the openly. 7 And when ye praye, bable not moch, as ye Hethen do: for they thinke that they shalbe herde, for their moch bablynges sake. 8 Be not ye lyke them therfore. For youre father knoweth where of ye haue nede, before ye axe of him. 9 After thys maner therfore shall ye praye:O oure father which art in heauen, halowed be thy name. 10 Thy kyngdome come. Thy wyll be fulfilled vpon earth as it is in heauen. 11 Geue vs this daye oure dayly bred. 12 And forgeue vs oure dettes, as we also forgeue oure detters. 13 And lede vs not in to teptacion: but delyuer vs from euell. For thyne is the kyngdome, and the power, and the glorye for euer. Amen. 14 For yf ye forgeue other men their treaspases, youre heauenly father shall also forgeue you. 15 But and ye wyll not forgeue me their trespases, nomore shall youre father forgeue you youre trespases. 16 Moreouer when ye fast, be not sad as ye ypocrytes are. For they disfigure their faces, that they myght be sene of men to fast. Verely I saye vnto you: they haue their rewarde. 17 But thou, whe thou fastest, annoynte thyne heed, and wash thy face, 18 that it appeare not vnto men, that thou fastest: but vnto thy father which is in secrete: and thy father which seyth in secrete, shal rewarde the openly. 19 Se that ye gather you not treasure vpon the earth, where rust and mothes corrupte, and where theues breake through and steale. 20 But gather you treasure together in heauen, where nether rust nor mothes corrupte, and where theues nether breake vp nor yet steale. 21 For where youre treasure is, there is youre herte also. 22 The eye is the light of the body. Yf thyne eye then be syngle, all thy body shalbe ful of light: 23 But and yf thyne eye be wycked, all thy body shalbe full of darckenes: Wherfore yf the light that is in the, be darckenes, how greate then shall that darckenes be? 24 No ma can serue two masters. For ether he shall hate the one and loue the other: or els he shall leane to the one, and despise the other: Ye can not serue God and mammon. 25 Therfore I saye vnto you: be not ye carefull for your lyfe, what ye shall eate, or what ye shall drinke: nor yet for youre body, what ye shal put on. Ys not the lyfe more worth the meate, and the body more of value then raymet? 26 Beholde the foules of ye ayer: for they sowe not, nether reepe, nor yet cary in to the barnes: and yet youre heauely father fedeth the. Are ye not moch better the they? 27 Which of you (though he toke thought therfore) coulde put one cubit vnto his stature? 28 why care ye then for rayment? Considre the lylies of the felde, how they growe. They laboure not, nether spynne. 29 And yet for all that I saye vnto you, that euen Salomon in all his royalte was not arayed lyke vnto one of these. 30 Wherfore yf God so cloth the grasse, which is to daye in the felde, and to morowe shalbe cast into the fornace: shal he not moch more do the same vnto you, o ye of lytle fayth? 31 Therfore take no thought, sayinge: what shall we eate, or what shall we drinke? or where with shall we be clothed? 32 After all soch thynges do the heithen seke. For youre heauenly father knoweth, that ye haue nede of all these thynges. 33 Seke ye fyrst the kyngdome of heauen and the righteousnes therof, so shal all these thynges be ministred vnto you. 34 Care not then for the morow, for the morow shall care for it self: Euery daye hath ynough of his owne trauayll.

James 1:26

26 Yf eny man amonge you seme deuoute, & refrayne not his toge: but deceaue his awne herte, this mannes deuocion is in vayne. 27 Pure deuocion and vndefiled before God the father, is this: to visit the frendlesse and widdowes in their aduersite, and to kepe him selfe vnspotted of the worlde.

Mark 16:15-16

15 And he sayde vnto them: Go ye youre waye in to all the worlde, and preach the gospell vnto all creatures. 16 Who so beleueth and is baptysed, shalbe saued: but who so beleueth not, shalbe damned.
