1 A song of degrees or Psalme of David. Behold, howe good and howe comely a thing it is, brethren to dwell euen together. 2 It is like to the precious oyntment vpon the head, that runneth downe vpon the beard, euen vnto Aarons beard, which went downe on the border of his garments: 3 And as the dew of Hermon, which falleth vpon the mountaines of Zion: for there the Lord appointed the blessing and life for euer.

13 Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt haue lost his sauour, wherewith shall it be salted? It is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be troden vnder foote of men. 14 Ye are the light of the world. A citie that is set on an hill, cannot be hid. 15 Neither doe men light a candel, and put it vnder a bushel, but on a candlesticke, and it giueth light vnto all that are in the house. 16 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good workes, and glorifie your Father which is in heauen.
3 That nothing be done through contention or vaine glory, but that in meekenesse of minde euery man esteeme other better then himselfe. 4 Looke not euery man on his owne things, but euery man also on the things of other men. 5 Let the same minde be in you that was euen in Christ Iesus, 6 Who being in ye forme of God, thought it no robberie to be equall with God: 7 But he made himself of no reputation, and tooke on him ye forme of a seruant, and was made like vnto men, and was founde in shape as a man. 8 He humbled himselfe, and became obedient vnto the death, euen the death of the Crosse. 9 Wherefore God hath also highly exalted him, and giuen him a Name aboue euery name, 10 That at the Name of Iesus shoulde euery knee bowe, both of things in heauen, and things in earth, and things vnder the earth, 11 And that euery tongue shoulde confesse that Iesus Christ is the Lord, vnto the glory of God the Father. 12 Wherefore my beloued, as ye haue alwayes obeyed me, not as in my presence only, but now much more in mine absence, so make an end of your owne saluation with feare and trembling. 13 For it is God which worketh in you, both the will and the deede, euen of his good pleasure. 14 Do all things without murmuring and reasonings, 15 That ye may be blamelesse, and pure, and the sonnes of God without rebuke in the middes of a naughtie and crooked nation, among whom yee shine as lights in the world, 16 Holding forth the worde of life, that I may reioyce in the day of Christ, that I haue not runne in vaine, neither haue laboured in vaine.
20 For where two or three are gathered together in my Name, there am I in the mids of them.
37 Iesus sayd to him, Thou shalt loue the Lord thy God with all thine heart, with all thy soule, and with all thy minde. 38 This is the first and the great commandement. 39 And the second is like vnto this, Thou shalt loue thy neighbour as thy selfe. 40 On these two commandements hangeth the whole Lawe, and the Prophets.
14 We desire you, brethren, admonish them that are out of order: comfort ye feeble minded: beare with the weake: be pacient toward all men.
3 For I say through the grace that is giuen vnto me, to euery one that is among you, that no man presume to vnderstande aboue that which is meete to vnderstand, but that he vnderstande according to sobrietie, as God hath dealt to euery man the measure of faith. 4 For as wee haue many members in one body, and all members haue not one office, 5 So we being many are one body in Christ, and euery one, one anothers members. 6 Seeing then that we haue gifts that are diuers, according to the grace that is giuen vnto vs, whether we haue prophecie, let vs prophecie according to the portion of faith: 7 Or an office, let vs waite on the office: or he that teacheth, on teaching: 8 Or he that exhorteth, on exhortation: he that distributeth, let him doe it with simplicitie: he that ruleth, with diligence: he that sheweth mercie, with cheerefulnesse. 9 Let loue be without dissimulation. Abhorre that which is euill, and cleaue vnto that which is good. 10 Be affectioned to loue one another with brotherly loue. In giuing honour, goe one before another, 11 Not slouthfull to do seruice: seruent in spirit seruing the Lord, 12 Reioycing in hope, pacient in tribulation, continuing in prayer, 13 Distributing vnto the necessities of the Saintes: giuing your selues to hospitalitie.
9 Two are better then one: for they haue better wages for their labour. 10 For if they fal, the one wil lift vp his felow: but wo vnto him that is alone: for he falleth, and there is not a second to lift him vp. 11 Also if two sleepe together, then shall they haue heate: but to one how should there be heate? 12 And if one ouercome him, two shall stand against him: and a threefolde coard is not easily broken.
42 And they continued in the Apostles doctrine, and fellowship, and breaking of bread, and prayers. 43 And feare came vpon euery soule: and many wonders and signes were done by ye Apostles. 44 And all that beleeued, were in one place, and had all things common. 45 And they sold their possessions and goods, and parted them to all me, as euery one had need. 46 And they continued dayly with one accord in the Temple, and breaking bread at home, did eate their meate together with gladnesse and singlenesse of heart, 47 Praysing God, and had fauour with all the people: and the Lord added to the Church from day to day, such as should be saued.
2 Beare ye one anothers burden, and so fulfill the Lawe of Christ.
