Psalms 119:105

105 NUN. Thy worde is a lanterne vnto my feete, and a light vnto my path.

Matthew 10:16

16 Behold, I send you as sheepe in the middes of the wolues: be yee therefore wise as serpents, and innocent as doues.

Luke 14:7-11

7 He spake also a parable to the ghestes, when he marked howe they chose out the chiefe roomes, and said vnto them, 8 When thou shalt be bidden of any man to a wedding, set not thy selfe downe in the chiefest place, lest a more honourable man then thou, be bidden of him, 9 And he that bade both him and thee, come, and say to thee, Giue this man roome, and thou then begin with shame to take the lowest roome. 10 But when thou art bidden, goe and sit downe in the lowest roome, that when he that bade thee, cometh, he may say vnto thee, Friende, sit vp hier: then shalt thou haue worship in the presence of them that sit at table with thee. 11 For whosoeuer exalteth himselfe, shall be brought lowe, and he that humbleth himselfe, shall be exalted.

Matthew 23:1-39

1 Then spake Iesus to the multitude, and to his disciples, 2 Saying, The Scribes and the Pharises sit in Moses seate. 3 All therefore whatsoeuer they bid you obserue, that obserue and doe: but after their workes doe not: for they say, and doe not. 4 For they binde heauie burdens, and grieuous to be borne, and lay them on mens shoulders, but they themselues will not moue them with one of their fingers. 5 All their workes they doe for to be seene of men: for they make their phylacteries broad, and make long the frindges of their garments, 6 And loue the chiefe place at feastes, and to haue the chiefe seates in the assemblies, 7 And greetings in the markets, and to be called of men, Rabbi, Rabbi. 8 But be not ye called, Rabbi: for one is your doctour, to wit, Christ, and all ye are brethren. 9 And call no man your father vpon the earth: for there is but one, your father which is in heauen. 10 Be not called doctours: for one is your doctour, euen Christ. 11 But he that is greatest among you, let him be your seruant. 12 For whosoeuer will exalt himselfe, shall be brought lowe: and whosoeuer will humble himselfe, shalbe exalted. 13 Wo therefore be vnto you, Scribes and Pharises, hypocrites, because ye shut vp the kingdome of heauen before men: for ye your selues go not in, neither suffer ye them that would enter, to come in. 14 Wo be vnto you, Scribes and Pharises, hypocrites: for ye deuoure widowes houses, euen vnder a colour of long prayers: wherefore ye shall receiue the greater damnation. 15 Wo be vnto you, Scribes and Pharises, hypocrites: for ye compasse sea and land to make one of your profession: and when he is made, ye make him two folde more the childe of hell, then you your selues. 16 Wo be vnto you blinde guides, which say, Whosoeuer sweareth by the Temple, it is nothing: but whosoeuer sweareth by the golde of the Temple, he offendeth. 17 Ye fooles and blinde, whether is greater, the golde, or the Temple that sanctifieth the golde? 18 And whosoeuer sweareth by the altar, it is nothing: but whosoeuer sweareth by the offering that is vpon it, offendeth. 19 Ye fooles and blinde, whether is greater, the offering, or the altar which sanctifieth the offering? 20 Whosoeuer therefore sweareth by the altar, sweareth by it, and by all things thereon. 21 And whosoeuer sweareth by the Temple, sweareth by it, and by him that dwelleth therein. 22 And he that sweareth by heauen, sweareth by the throne of God, and by him that sitteth thereon. 23 Wo be to you, Scribes and Pharises, hypocrites: for ye tithe mynt, and annyse, and cummyn, and leaue the weightier matters of the law, as iudgement, and mercy and fidelitie. These ought ye to haue done, and not to haue left the other. 24 Ye blinde guides, which straine out a gnat, and swallowe a camell. 25 Wo be to you, Scribes and Pharises, hypocrites: for ye make cleane the vtter side of the cup, and of the platter: but within they are ful of briberie and excesse. 26 Thou blinde Pharise, cleanse first the inside of the cup and platter, that the outside of them may be cleane also. 27 Wo be to you, Scribes and Pharises, hypocrites: for ye are like vnto whited tombes, which appeare beautifull outward, but are within full of dead mens bones, and all filthines. 28 So are ye also: for outwarde ye appeare righteous vnto men, but within ye are full of hypocrisie and iniquitie. 29 Wo be vnto you, Scribes and Pharises, hypocrites: for ye build the tombes of the Prophets, and garnish the sepulchres of the righteous, 30 And say, If we had bene in the dayes of our fathers, we would not haue bene partners with them in the blood of the Prophets. 31 So then ye be witnesses vnto your selues, that ye are the children of them that murthered the Prophets. 32 Fulfill ye also ye measure of your fathers. 33 O serpents, the generation of vipers, howe should ye escape the damnation of hell! 34 Wherefore beholde, I send vnto you Prophets, and wise men, and Scribes, and of them ye shall kill and crucifie: and of them shall ye scourge in your Synagogues, and persecute from citie to citie, 35 That vpon you may come all the righteous blood that was shed vpon the earth, from the blood of Abel the righteous, vnto the blood of Zacharias the sonne of Barachias, whome ye slewe betweene the Temple and the altar. 36 Verely I say vnto you, all these things shall come vpon this generation. 37 Hierusalem, Hierusalem, which killest the Prophets, and stonest them which are sent to thee, how often would I haue gathered thy children together, as the henne gathereth her chickins vnder her wings, and ye would not! 38 Beholde, your habitation shalbe left vnto you desolate, 39 For I say vnto you, ye shall not see mee henceforth till that ye say, Blessed is he that commeth in the Name of the Lord.

Matthew 25:1-46

1 Then the kingdome of heauen shalbe likened vnto tenne virgins, which tooke their lampes, and went foorth to meete the bridegrome. 2 And fiue of them were wise, and fiue foolish. 3 The foolish tooke their lampes, but tooke none oyle with them. 4 But the wise tooke oyle in their vessels with their lampes. 5 Nowe while the bridegrome taried long, all slumbred and slept. 6 And at midnight there was a crie made, Behold, the bridegrome commeth: goe out to meete him. 7 Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their lampes. 8 And the foolish said to the wise, Giue vs of your oyle, for our lampes are out. 9 But the wise answered, saying, Not so, lest there will not be ynough for vs and you: but goe ye rather to them that sell, and bye for your selues. 10 And while they went to bye, the bridegrome came: and they that were readie, went in with him to the wedding, and the gate was shut. 11 Afterwards came also the other virgins, saying, Lord, Lord, open to vs. 12 But he answered, and said, Verely I say vnto you, I knowe you not. 13 Watch therfore: for ye know neither the day, nor the houre, when the sonne of man will come. 14 For the kingdome of heauen is as a man that going into a strange countrey, called his seruants, and deliuered to them his goods. 15 And vnto one he gaue fiue talents, and to an other two, and to another one, to euery man after his own ability, and straightway went from home. 16 Then he that had receiued the fiue talents, went and occupied with them, and gained other fiue talents. 17 Likewise also, he that receiued two, he also gained other two. 18 But he that receiued that one, went and digged it in the earth, and hid his masters money. 19 But after a long season, the master of those seruants came, and reckoned with them. 20 Then came he that had receiued fiue talents, and brought other fiue talents, saying, Master, thou deliueredst vnto me fiue talents: behold, I haue gained with them other fiue talents. 21 Then his master saide vnto him, It is well done good seruant and faithfull, Thou hast bene faithfull in litle, I will make thee ruler ouer much: enter into thy masters ioy. 22 Also he that had receiued two talents, came, and said, Master, thou deliueredst vnto me two talents: behold, I haue gained two other talets more. 23 His master saide vnto him, It is well done good seruant, and faithfull, Thou hast bene faithfull in litle, I will make thee ruler ouer much: enter into thy masters ioy. 24 Then he which had receiued the one talent, came, and said, Master, I knewe that thou wast an hard man, which reapest where thou sowedst not, and gatherest where thou strawedst not: 25 I was therefore afraide, and went, and hid thy talent in the earth: behold, thou hast thine owne. 26 And his master answered, and said vnto him, Thou euill seruant, and slouthfull, thou knewest that I reape where I sowed not, and gather where I strawed not. 27 Thou oughtest therefore to haue put my money to ye exchangers, and then at my comming should I haue receiued mine owne with vantage. 28 Take therefore the talent from him, and giue it vnto him which hath tenne talents. 29 For vnto euery man that hath, it shall be giuen, and he shall haue abundance, and from him that hath not, euen that he hath, shalbe taken away. 30 Cast therefore that vnprofitable seruant into vtter darkenes: there shalbe weeping and gnasshing of teeth. 31 And when the Sonne of man commeth in his glory, and all the holy Angels with him, then shall he sit vpon the throne of his glorie, 32 And before him shalbe gathered all nations, and he shall seperate them one from another, as a shepheard separateth the sheepe from ye goates. 33 And he shall set the sheepe on his right hand, and the goates on the left. 34 Then shall ye king say to them on his right hand, Come ye blessed of my father: take the inheritance of the kingdome prepared for you from the foundation of the world. 35 For I was an hungred, and ye gaue me meate: I thirsted, and ye gaue me drinke: I was a stranger, and ye tooke me in vnto you. 36 I was naked, and ye clothed me: I was sicke, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came vnto me. 37 Then shall the righteous answere him, saying, Lord, when sawe we thee an hungred, and fed thee? or a thirst, and gaue thee drinke? 38 And when sawe we thee a stranger, and tooke thee in vnto vs? or naked, and clothed thee? 39 Or when sawe we thee sicke, or in prison, and came vnto thee? 40 And the King shall answere, and say vnto them, Verely I say vnto you, in as much as ye haue done it vnto one of the least of these my brethre, ye haue done it to me. 41 Then shall he say vnto them on ye left hand, Depart from me ye cursed, into euerlasting fire, which is prepared for the deuill and his angels. 42 For I was an hungred, and ye gaue me no meate: I thirsted, and ye gaue me no drinke: 43 I was a stranger, and ye tooke me not in vnto you: I was naked, and ye clothed me not: sicke, and in prison, and ye visited me not. 44 Then shall they also answere him, saying, Lord, when sawe we thee an hungred, or a thirst, or a stranger, or naked, or sicke, or in prison, and did not minister vnto thee? 45 Then shall he answere them, and say, Verely I say vnto you, in as much as ye did it not to one of the least of these, ye did it not to me. 46 And these shall goe into euerlasting paine, and the righteous into life eternall.

Romans 12:19

19 Dearely beloued, auenge not your selues, but giue place vnto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine: I will repay, saith the Lord.

1 John 4:16

16 And we haue knowen, and beleeued ye loue that God hath in vs. God is loue, and he that dwelleth in loue, dwelleth in God, and God in him.

Proverbs 13:1-25

1 A wise sonne will obey the instruction of his father: but a scorner will heare no rebuke. 2 A man shall eate good things by the fruite of his mouth: but the soule of the trespassers shall suffer violence. 3 Hee that keepeth his mouth, keepeth his life: but he that openeth his lips, destruction shall be to him. 4 The sluggard lusteth, but his soule hath nought: but the soule of the diligent shall haue plentie. 5 A righteous man hateth lying wordes: but the wicked causeth slander and shame. 6 Righteousnesse preserueth the vpright of life: but wickednes ouerthroweth the sinner. 7 There is that maketh himselfe riche, and hath nothing, and that maketh himselfe poore, hauing great riches. 8 A man will giue his riches for the ransome of his life: but the poore cannot heare ye reproch. 9 The light of the righteous reioyceth: but the candle of the wicked shall be put out. 10 Onely by pride doeth man make contention: but with the well aduised is wisdome. 11 The riches of vanitie shall diminish: but he that gathereth with the hand, shall increase them. 12 The hope that is deferred, is the fainting of the heart: but when the desire commeth, it is as a tree of life. 13 He that despiseth the worde, hee shall be destroyed: but hee that feareth the commandement he shalbe rewarded. 14 The instruction of a wise man is as the welspring of life, to turne away from the snares of death. 15 Good vnderstanding maketh acceptable: but the way of the disobedient is hated. 16 Euery wise man will worke by knowledge: but a foole will spread abroade folly. 17 A wicked messenger falleth into euill: but a faithfull ambassadour is preseruation. 18 Pouertie and shame is to him that refuseth instruction: but hee that regardeth correction, shalbe honoured. 19 A desire accomplished deliteth ye soule: but it is an abomination to fooles to depart from euil. 20 He that walketh with the wise, shalbe wise: but a companion of fooles shalbe afflicted. 21 Affliction followeth sinners: but vnto the righteous God will recompense good. 22 The good man shall giue inheritance vnto his childrens children: and the riches of the sinner is layde vp for the iust. 23 Much foode is in the fielde of the poore: but the fielde is destroyed without discretion. 24 He that spareth his rodde, hateth his sonne: but he that loueth him, chasteneth him betime. 25 The righteous eateth to the contentation of his minde: but the belly of the wicked shall want.

Matthew 20:1-16

1 For the kingdome of heauen is like vnto a certaine, housholder, which went out at the dawning of the day to hire labourers into his vineyarde. 2 And he agreed with the labourers for a peny a day, and sent them into his vineyard. 3 And he went out about the third houre, and sawe other standing idle in the market place, 4 And sayd vnto them, Goe ye also into my vineyard, and whatsoeuer is right, I will giue you: and they went their way. 5 Againe he went out about the sixt and ninth houre, and did likewise. 6 And he went about the eleuenth houre, and found other standing idle, and sayd vnto them, Why stand ye here all the day idle? 7 They sayd vnto him, Because no man hath hired vs. He sayd to them, Goe ye also into my vineyard, and whatsoeuer is right, that shall ye receiue. 8 And when euen was come, the master of the vineyard sayd vnto his steward, Call the labourers, and giue them their hire, beginning at the last, till thou come to the first. 9 And they which were hired about ye eleuenth houre, came and receiued euery man a penie. 10 Nowe when the first came, they supposed that they should receiue more, but they likewise receiued euery man a penie. 11 And when they had receiued it, they murmured against the master of the house, 12 Saying, These last haue wrought but one houre, and thou hast made them equall vnto vs, which haue borne the burden and heate of the day. 13 And hee answered one of them, saying, Friend, I doe thee no wrong: didst thou not agree with me for a penie? 14 Take that which is thine owne, and go thy way: I will giue vnto this last, as much as to thee. 15 Is it not lawfull for me to do as I will with mine owne? Is thine eye euil, because I am good? 16 So the last shalbe first, and the first last: for many are called, but fewe chosen.

Luke 4:18

18 The Spirit of the Lord is vpon mee, because he hath anoynted me, that I should preach the Gospel to the poore: he hath sent mee, that I should heale the broken hearted, that I should preach deliuerance to the captiues, and recouering of sight to the blinde, that I should set at libertie them that are bruised:

1 Timothy 5:8

8 If there bee any that prouideth not for his owne, and namely for them of his housholde, hee denieth the faith, and is worse then an infidell.

Ephesians 4:1-32

1 I therefore, being prisoner in the Lord, praie you that yee walke worthie of the vocation whereunto yee are called, 2 With all humblenesse of minde, and meekenesse, with long suffering, supporting one an other through loue, 3 Endeuouring to keepe the vnitie of the Spirit in the bond of peace. 4 There is one body, and one Spirit, euen as yee are called in one hope of your vocation. 5 There is one Lord, one Faith, one Baptisme, 6 One God and Father of all, which is aboue all, and through all, and in you all. 7 But vnto euery one of vs is giuen grace, according to the measure of the gift of Christ. 8 Wherfore he saith, Whe he asceded vp on hie, he led captiuity captiue, and gaue gifts vnto men. 9 (Nowe, in that hee ascended, what is it but that he had also descended first into the lowest partes of the earth? 10 Hee that descended, is euen the same that ascended, farre aboue all heauens, that hee might fill all things) 11 Hee therefore gaue some to be Apostles, and some Prophets, and some Euangelists, and some Pastours, and Teachers, 12 For the repairing of the Saintes, for the woorke of the ministerie, and for the edification of the bodie of Christ, 13 Till we all meete together (in the vnitie of faith and that acknowledging of the Sonne of God) vnto a perfite man, and vnto the measure of the age of the fulnesse of Christ, 14 That we henceforth be no more children, wauering and caried about with euery winde of doctrine, by the deceit of men, and with craftines, whereby they lay in wait to deceiue. 15 But let vs folowe the truth in loue, and in all things, grow vp into him, which is the head, that is, Christ. 16 By whome al the body being coupled and knit together by euery ioynt, for ye furniture therof (according to the effectual power, which is in the measure of euery part) receiueth increase of the body, vnto the edifying of itselfe in loue. 17 This I say therefore and testifie in the Lord, that yee hencefoorth walke not as other Gentiles walke, in vanitie of their minde, 18 Hauing their vnderstanding darkened, and being strangers from the life of God through the ignorance that is in them, because of the hardnesse of their heart: 19 Which being past feeling, haue giuen themselues vnto wantonnesse, to woorke all vncleannesse, euen with griedinesse. 20 But yee haue not so learned Christ, 21 If so be yee haue heard him, and haue bene taught by him, as the trueth is in Iesus, 22 That is, that yee cast off, concerning the conuersation in time past, that olde man, which is corrupt through the deceiueable lustes, 23 And be renued in the spirit of your minde, 24 And put on ye new man, which after God is created vnto righteousnes, and true holines. 25 Wherefore cast off lying, and speake euery man truth vnto his neighbour: for we are members one of another. 26 Bee angrie, but sinne not: let not the sunne goe downe vpon your wrath, 27 Neither giue place to the deuill. 28 Let him that stole, steale no more: but let him rather labour, and worke with his handes the thing which is good, that hee may haue to giue vnto him that needeth. 29 Let no corrupt comunication proceed out of your mouths: but that which is good, to ye vse of edifying, that it may minister grace vnto the hearers. 30 And grieue not the holy Spirit of God, by whom ye are sealed vnto ye day of redemption. 31 Let all bitternesse, and anger, and wrath, crying, and euill speaking be put away from you, with all maliciousnesse. 32 Be ye courteous one to another, and tender hearted, freely forgiuing one another, euen as God for Christes sake, freely forgaue you.

2 Thessalonians 3:12

12 Therefore them that are such, we warne and exhort by our Lord Iesus Christ, that they worke with quietnes, and eate their owne bread.

James 4:6

6 But the Scripture offereth more grace, and therefore sayth, God resisteth the proude, and giueth grace to the humble.

2 Thessalonians 3:10

10 For euen when we were with you, this we warned you of, that if there were any, which would not worke, that he should not eate.

James 4:1-12

1 From whence are warres and contentions among you? are they not hence, euen of your pleasures, that fight in your members? 2 Ye lust, and haue not: ye enuie, and desire immoderately, and cannot obtaine: ye fight and warre, and get nothing, because ye aske not. 3 Ye aske, and receiue not, because ye aske amisse, that ye might lay the same out on your pleasures. 4 Ye adulterers and adulteresses, knowe ye not that the amitie of the world is the enimitie of God? Whosoeuer therefore will be a friend of the world, maketh himselfe the enemie of God. 5 Doe ye thinke that the Scripture sayeth in vaine, The spirit that dwelleth in vs, lusteth after enuie? 6 But the Scripture offereth more grace, and therefore sayth, God resisteth the proude, and giueth grace to the humble. 7 Submit your selues to God: resist the deuill, and he will flee from you. 8 Drawe neere to God, and he will drawe neere to you. Clense your handes, ye sinners, and purge your hearts, ye double minded. 9 Suffer afflictions, and sorrowe ye, and weepe: let your laughter be turned into mourning, and your ioy into heauinesse. 10 Cast downe your selues before the Lord, and he will lift you vp. 11 Speake not euill one of another, brethren. He that speaketh euill of his brother, or he that condemneth his brother, speaketh euill of ye Law, and condemneth the Lawe: and if thou condemnest the Lawe, thou art not an obseruer of the Lawe, but a iudge. 12 There is one Lawgiuer, which is able to saue, and to destroy. Who art thou that iudgest another man?
