Matthew 7:1-29

1 Judge not, that ye be not iudged. 2 Eor with what iudgement ye iudge, ye shall be iudged, and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you againe. 3 And why seest thou the mote, that is in thy brothers eye, and perceiuest not the beame that is in thine owne eye? 4 Or howe sayest thou to thy brother, Suffer me to cast out the mote out of thine eye, and beholde, a beame is in thine owne eye? 5 Hypocrite, first cast out that beame out of thine owne eye, and then shalt thou see clearely to cast out the mote out of thy brothers eye. 6 Giue ye not that which is holy, to dogges, neither cast ye your pearles before swine, lest they treade them vnder their feete, and turning againe, all to rent you. 7 Aske, and it shall be giuen you: seeke, and ye shall finde: knocke, and it shall be opened vnto you. 8 For whosoeuer asketh, receiueth: and he, that seeketh, findeth: and to him that knocketh, it shall be opened. 9 For what man is there among you, which if his sonne aske him bread, woulde giue him a stone? 10 Or if he aske fish, wil he giue him a serpent? 11 If ye then, which are euill, can giue to your children good giftes, howe much more shall your Father which is in heauen, giue good thinges to them that aske him? 12 Therefore whatsoeuer ye woulde that men should doe to you, euen so doe ye to them: for this is the Lawe and the Prophets. 13 Enter in at the streight gate: for it is the wide gate, and broade way that leadeth to destruction: and many there be which goe in thereat, 14 Because the gate is streight, and the way narowe that leadeth vnto life, and fewe there be that finde it. 15 Beware of false prophets, which come to you, in sheepes clothing, but inwardly they are rauening wolues. 16 Ye shall know them by their fruites. Doe men gather grapes of thornes? or figges of thistles? 17 So euery good tree bringeth foorth good fruite, and a corrupt tree bringeth forth euill fruite. 18 A good tree can not bring forth euil fruite: neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruite. 19 Euery tree that bringeth not forth good fruite, is hewen downe, and cast into the fire. 20 Therefore by their fruites ye shall knowe them. 21 Not euery one that sayeth vnto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdome of heauen, but he that doeth my Fathers will which is in heauen. 22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, haue we not by thy Name prophecied? and by thy name cast out deuils? and by thy name done many great workes? 23 And then will I professe to them, I neuer knewe you: depart from me, ye that worke iniquitie. 24 Whosoeuer then heareth of mee these words, and doeth the same, I will liken him to a wise man, which hath builded his house on a rock: 25 And the raine fell, and the floods came, and the windes blewe, and beat vpon that house, and it fell not: for it was grounded on a rocke. 26 But whosoeuer heareth these my wordes, and doeth them not, shall be likened vnto a foolish man, which hath builded his house vpon the sand: 27 And the raine fell, and the floods came, and the windes blewe, and beat vpon that house, and it fell, and the fall thereof was great. 28 And it came to passe, when Iesus had ended these wordes, the people were astonied at his doctrine. 29 For he taught them as one hauing authoritie, and not as the Scribes.

Matthew 15:1-39

1 Then came to Iesus the Scribes and Pharises, which were of Hierusalem, saying, 2 Why do thy disciples transgresse the tradition of the Elders? for they wash not their hands when they eate bread. 3 But he answered and said vnto them, Why doe yee also transgresse the commandement of God by your tradition? 4 For God hath commanded, saying, Honour thy father and mother: and he that curseth father or mother, let him die the death. 5 But ye say, Whosoeuer shall say to father or mother, By the gift that is offered by me, thou maiest haue profite, 6 Though hee honour not his father, or his mother, shalbe free: thus haue ye made the commandement of God of no aucthoritie by your tradition. 7 O hypocrites, Esaias prophecied well of you, saying, 8 This people draweth neere vnto me with their mouth, and honoureth me with the lips, but their heart is farre off from me. 9 But in vaine they worship me, teaching for doctrines, mens precepts. 10 Then hee called the multitude vnto him, and said to them, Heare and vnderstand. 11 That which goeth into the mouth, defileth not the man, but that which commeth out of the mouth, that defileth the man. 12 Then came his disciples, and saide vnto him, Perceiuest thou not, that the Pharises are offended in hearing this saying? 13 But hee answered and saide, Euery plant which mine heauenly Father hath not planted, shalbe rooted vp. 14 Let them alone, they be the blinde leaders of the blinde: and if the blinde leade ye blinde, both shall fall into the ditche. 15 Then answered Peter, and said to him, Declare vnto vs this parable. 16 Then said Iesus, Are ye yet without vnderstanding? 17 Perceiue ye not yet, that whatsoeuer entreth into the mouth, goeth into the bellie, and is cast out into the draught? 18 But those thinges which proceede out of the mouth, come from the heart, and they defile the man. 19 For out of the heart come euil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false testimonies, slaunders. 20 These are the things, which defile the man: but to eat with vnwashen hands, defileth not ye man. 21 And Iesus went thence, and departed into the coastes of Tyrus and Sidon. 22 And beholde, a woman a Cananite came out of the same coasts, and cried, saying vnto him, Haue mercie on me, O Lord, the sonne of Dauid: my daughter is miserably vexed with a deuil. 23 But hee answered her not a worde. Then came to him his disciples, and besought him, saying, Sende her away, for she crieth after vs. 24 But he answered, and said, I am not sent, but vnto the lost sheepe of the house of Israel. 25 Yet she came, and worshipped him, saying, Lord, helpe me. 26 And he answered, and said, It is not good to take the childrens bread, and to cast it to whelps. 27 But she said, Trueth, Lord: yet in deede the whelpes eate of the crommes, which fall from their masters table. 28 Then Iesus answered, and saide vnto her, O woman, great is thy faith: be it to thee, as thou desirest. And her daughter was made whole at that houre. 29 So Iesus went away from thence, and came neere vnto the sea of Galile, and went vp into a mountaine and sate downe there. 30 And great multitudes came vnto him, hauing with them, halt, blinde, dumme, maymed, and many other, and cast them downe at Iesus feete, and he healed them. 31 In so much that the multitude wondered, to see the dumme speake, the maimed whole, the halt to goe, and the blinde to see: and they glorified the God of Israel. 32 Then Iesus called his disciples vnto him, and said, I haue compassion on this multitude, because they haue continued with mee already three dayes, and haue nothing to eate: and I wil not let them depart fasting, least they faint in the way. 33 And his disciples saide vnto him, Whence should we get so much bread in the wildernes, as should suffice so great a multitude! 34 And Iesus said vnto them, How many loaues haue ye? And they said, Seuen, and a few litle fishes. 35 Then he commanded the multitude to sit downe on the ground, 36 And tooke the seuen loaues, and the fishes, and gaue thankes, and brake them, and gaue to his disciples, and the disciples to the multitude. 37 And they did all eate, and were sufficed: and they tooke vp of the fragments that remained, seuen baskets full. 38 And they that had eaten, were foure thousand men, beside women, and litle children. 39 Then Iesus sent away the multitude, and tooke ship, and came into the partes of Magdala.

1 Corinthians 10:23

23 All things are lawfull for me, but all things are not expedient: all things are lawfull for me, but all things edifie not.

Luke 6:37

37 Iudge not, and ye shall not be iudged: condemne not, and ye shall not bee condemned: forgiue, and ye shalbe forgiuen.

John 4:23-24

23 But the houre commeth, and nowe is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit, and trueth: for the Father requireth euen such to worship him. 24 God is a Spirite, and they that worship him, must worship him in spirit and trueth.

Romans 14:16

16 Cause not your commoditie to be euill spoken of.

1 Timothy 2:1-15

1 I Exhort therefore, that first of all supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giuing of thanks be made for all men, 2 For Kings, and for all that are in authoritie, that we may leade a quiet and a peaceable life, in all godlinesse and honestie. 3 For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Sauiour, 4 Who will that all men shalbe saued, and come vnto the acknowledging of the trueth. 5 For there is one God, and one Mediatour betweene God and man, which is the man Christ Iesus, 6 Who gaue himselfe a ransome for all men, to be that testimonie in due time, 7 Whereunto I am ordeined a preacher and an Apostle (I speake the trueth in Christ, and lie not) euen a teacher of the Gentiles in faith and veritie. 8 I will therefore that the men pray, euery where lifting vp pure hands without wrath, or douting. 9 Likewise also the women, that they aray themselues in comely apparell, with shamefastnes and modestie, not with broyded heare, or gold, or pearles, or costly apparell, 10 But (as becommeth women that professe the feare of God) with good workes. 11 Let the woman learne in silence with all subiection. 12 I permit not a woman to teache, neither to vsurpe authoritie ouer the man, but to be in silence. 13 For Adam was first formed, then Eue. 14 And Adam was not deceiued, but the woman was deceiued, and was in the transgression. 15 Notwithstanding, through bearing of children she shalbe saued if they continue in faith, and loue, and holines with modestie.

Proverbs 1:1-33

1 The Parables of Salomon the sonne of Dauid King of Israel, 2 To knowe wisdome, and instruction, to vnderstand ye wordes of knowledge, 3 To receiue instruction to do wisely, by iustice and iudgement and equitie, 4 To giue vnto the simple, sharpenesse of wit, and to the childe knowledge and discretion. 5 A wise man shall heare and increase in learning, and a man of vnderstanding shall attayne vnto wise counsels, 6 To vnderstand a parable, and the interpretation, the wordes of ye wise, and their darke sayings. 7 The feare of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge: but fooles despise wisedome and instruction. 8 My sonne, heare thy fathers instruction, and forsake not thy mothers teaching. 9 For they shalbe a comely ornament vnto thine head, and as chaines for thy necke. 10 My sonne, if sinners doe intise thee, consent thou not. 11 If they say, Come with vs, we will lay waite for blood, and lie priuilie for the innocent without a cause: 12 We wil swallow them vp aliue like a graue euen whole, as those that goe downe into the pit: 13 We shall finde all precious riches, and fill our houses with spoyle: 14 Cast in thy lot among vs: we will all haue one purse: 15 My sonne, walke not thou in the way with them: refraine thy foote from their path. 16 For their feete runne to euill, and make haste to shed blood. 17 Certainely as without cause the net is spred before the eyes of all that hath wing: 18 So they lay waite for blood and lie priuily for their liues. 19 Such are the wayes of euery one that is greedy of gaine: he would take away the life of the owners thereof. 20 Wisdome cryeth without: she vttereth her voyce in the streetes. 21 She calleth in the hye streete, among the prease in the entrings of the gates, and vttereth her wordes in the citie, saying, 22 O ye foolish, howe long will ye loue foolishnes? and the scornefull take their pleasure in scorning, and the fooles hate knowledge? 23 (Turne you at my correction: loe, I will powre out my mind vnto you, and make you vnderstand my wordes) 24 Because I haue called, and ye refused: I haue stretched out mine hand, and none woulde regarde. 25 But ye haue despised all my counsell, and would none of my correction. 26 I will also laugh at your destruction, and mocke, when your feare commeth. 27 Whe your feare cometh like sudden desolation, and your destruction shall come like a whirle wind: whe affliction and anguish shall come vpon you, 28 Then shall they call vpon me, but I will not answere: they shall seeke me early, but they shall not finde me, 29 Because they hated knowledge, and did not chuse the feare of the Lord. 30 They would none of my counsell, but despised all my correction. 31 Therefore shall they eate of ye fruite of their owne way, and be filled with their owne deuises. 32 For ease slaieth the foolish, and the prosperitie of fooles destroyeth them. 33 But he that obeyeth me, shall dwell safely, and be quiet from feare of euill.

Leviticus 19:32

12 Now therfore as the elect of God holy and beloued, put on the bowels of mercies, kindnesse, humblenesse of minde, meekenesse, long suffering:
