John 15:1-17

1 I Am that true vine, and my Father is that husband man. 2 Euery branch that beareth not fruite in me, he taketh away: and euery one that beareth fruite, he purgeth it, that it may bring forth more fruite. 3 Nowe are ye cleane through the worde, which I haue spoken vnto you. 4 Abide in me, and I in you: as the branche cannot beare fruite of it selfe, except it abide in the vine, no more can ye, except ye abide in me. 5 I am that vine: ye are the branches: he that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruite: for without me can ye doe nothing. 6 If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branche, and withereth: and men gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they burne. 7 If ye abide in me, and my wordes abide in you, aske what ye wil, and it shalbe done to you. 8 Herein is my Father glorified, that ye beare much fruite, and be made my disciples. 9 As the father hath loued me, so haue I loued you: continue in that my loue. 10 If ye shall keepe my commandements, ye shall abide in my loue, as I haue kept my Fathers commandements, and abide in his loue. 11 These things haue I spoken vnto you, that my ioy might remaine in you, and that your ioy might be full. 12 This is my commandement, that ye loue one another, as I haue loued you. 13 Greater loue then this hath no man, when any man bestoweth his life for his friendes. 14 Ye are my friendes, if ye doe whatsoeuer I commaund you. 15 Henceforth call I you not seruants: for the seruant knoweth not what his master doeth: but I haue called you friends: for all things that I haue heard of my Father, haue I made knowen to you. 16 Ye haue not chosen me, but I haue chosen you, and ordeined you, that ye goe and bring foorth fruite, and that your fruite remaine, that whatsoeuer ye shall aske of the Father in my Name, he may giue it you. 17 These things commaund I you, that ye loue one another.

Titus 2:1-8

1 Bvt speake thou the thinges which become wholesome doctrine, 2 That the elder men be watchful, graue, teperate, sounde in the faith, in loue, and in patience: 3 The elder women likewise, that they be in such behauiour as becommeth holinesse, not false accusers, not subiect to much wine, but teachers of honest things, 4 That they may instruct the yong women to be sober minded, that they loue their husbands, that they loue their children, 5 That they be temperate, chaste, keeping at home, good and subiect vnto their husbands, that the word of God be not euill spoken of. 6 Exhort yong men likewise, that they bee sober minded. 7 In all things shewe thy selfe an ensample of good woorkes with vncorrupt doctrine, with grauitie, integritie, 8 And with the wholesome woorde, which can not be condemned, that hee which withstandeth, may be ashamed, hauing nothing concerning you to speake euill of.
