Iesus answered him, If I wash thee not, thou shalt haue no part with me. 9 Simon Peter sayd vnto him, Lord, not my feete onely, but also the hands and the head. 10 Iesus sayd to him, He that is washed, needeth not, saue to wash his feete, but is cleane euery whit: and ye are cleane, but not all. 11 For hee knewe who should betray him: therefore sayd he, Ye are not all cleane. 12 So after he had washed their feete, and had taken his garments, and was set downe againe, he sayd vnto them, Knowe ye what I haue done to you? 13 Ye call me Master, and Lord, and ye say well: for so am I. 14 If I then your Lord, and Master, haue washed your feete, ye also ought to wash one an others feete. 15 For I haue giuen you an example, that ye should doe, euen as I haue done to you. 16 Verely, verely I say vnto you, The seruant is not greater then his master, neither the ambassadour greater then he that sent him. 17 If ye know these things, blessed are ye, if ye doe them.

Matthew 4:1-25

1 Then was Iesus led aside of the Spirit into the wildernes, to be tempted of the deuil. 2 And when he had fasted fourtie dayes, and fourtie nights, he was afterward hungrie. 3 Then came to him the tempter, and said, If thou be the Sonne of God, commande that these stones be made bread. 4 But he answering said, It is written, Man shall not liue by bread onely, but by euery worde that proceedeth out of the mouth of God. 5 Then the deuil tooke him vp into the holy Citie, and set him on a pinacle of the temple, 6 And said vnto him, If thou be the Sonne of God, cast thy selfe downe: for it is written, that he wil giue his Angels charge ouer thee, and with their hands they shall lift thee vp, lest at any time thou shouldest dash thy foote against a stone. 7 Iesus saide vnto him, It is written againe, Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God. 8 Againe the deuil tooke him vp into an exceeding hie mountaine, and shewed him all the kingdomes of the world, and the glory of them, 9 And sayd to him, All these will I giue thee, if thou wilt fall downe, and worship me. 10 Then sayd Iesus vnto him, Auoyde Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him onely shalt thou serue. 11 Then the deuill left him: and beholde, the Angels came, and ministred vnto him. 12 And when Iesus had heard that Iohn was committed to prison, he returned into Galile. 13 And leauing Nazareth, went and dwelt in Capernaum, which is neere the sea in the borders of Zabulon and Nephthalim, 14 That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Esaias the Propet, saying, 15 The land of Zabulon, and the land of Nephthalim by the way of the sea, beyond Iordan, Galile of the Gentiles: 16 The people which sate in darkenes, sawe great light: and to them which sate in the region, and shadowe of death, light is risen vp. 17 From that time Iesus began to preach, and to say, Amende your liues: for the kingdome of heauen is at hand. 18 And Iesus walking by the sea of Galile, sawe two brethren, Simon, which was called Peter, and Andrew his brother, casting a net into the sea (for they were fishers.) 19 And he sayd vnto them, Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men. 20 And they straightway leauing the nets, folowed him. 21 And when he was gone forth from thence, he saw other two brethren, Iames the sonne of Zebedeus, and Iohn his brother in a ship with Zebedeus their father, mending their nets, and he called them. 22 And they without tarying, leauing the ship, and their father, folowed him. 23 So Iesus went about all Galile, teaching in their Synagogues, and preaching the Gospel of the kingdome, and healing euery sicknesse and euery disease among the people. 24 And his fame spread abroad through all Syria: and they brought vnto him all sicke people, that were taken with diuers diseases and torments, and them that were possessed with deuils, and those which were lunatike, and those that had the palsey: and he healed them. 25 And there folowed him great multitudes out of Galile, and Decapolis, and Hierusalem, and Iudea, and from beyond Iordan.

Matthew 6:1-34

1 Take heede that ye giue not your almes before men, to be seene of them, or els ye shall haue no reward of your Father which is in heaue. 2 Therefore when thou giuest thine almes, thou shalt not make a trumpet to be blowen before thee, as the hypocrites doe in the Synagogues and in the streetes, to be praysed of men. Verely I say vnto you, they haue their rewarde. 3 But when thou doest thine almes, let not thy left hand knowe what thy right hand doeth, 4 That thine almes may be in secret, and thy Father that seeth in secret, hee will rewarde thee openly. 5 And when thou prayest, be not as the hypocrites: for they loue to stand, and pray in the Synagogues, and in the corners of the streetes, because they would be seene of men. Verely I say vnto you, they haue their rewarde. 6 But when thou prayest, enter into thy chamber and when thou hast shut thy doore, pray vnto thy Father which is in secret, and thy Father which seeth in secret, shall rewarde thee openly. 7 Also when ye pray, vse no vaine repetitions as the Heathen: for they thinke to be heard for their much babbling. 8 Be ye not like them therefore: for your Father knoweth whereof ye haue neede, before ye aske of him. 9 After this maner therefore pray ye, Our father which art in heauen, halowed be thy name. 10 Thy Kingdome come. Thy will be done euen in earth, as it is in heauen. 11 Giue vs this day our dayly bread. 12 And forgiue vs our dettes, as we also forgiue our detters. 13 And leade vs not into tentation, but deliuer vs from euill: for thine is the kingdome, and the power, and the glorie for euer. Amen. 14 For if ye doe forgiue men their trespasses, your heauenly Father will also forgiue you. 15 But if ye do not forgiue men their trespasses,, no more will your father forgiue you your trespaces. 16 Moreouer, when ye fast, looke not sowre as the hypocrites: for they disfigure their faces, that they might seeme vnto men to fast. Verely I say vnto you, that they haue their rewarde. 17 But when thou fastest, anoint thine head, and wash thy face, 18 That thou seeme not vnto men to fast, but vnto thy Father which is in secret: and thy Father which seeth in secret, will rewarde thee openly. 19 Lay not vp treasures for your selues vpon the earth, where the mothe and canker corrupt, and where theeues digge through and steale. 20 But lay vp treasures for your selues in heauen, where neither the mothe nor canker corrupteth, and where theeues neither digge through, nor steale. 21 For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also. 22 The light of the body is the eye: if then thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be light. 23 But if thine eye be wicked, then all thy body shalbe darke. Wherefore if the light that is in thee, be darkenes, howe great is that darkenesse? 24 No man can serue two masters: for eyther he shall hate the one, and loue the other, or els he shall leane to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serue God and riches. 25 Therefore I say vnto you, be not carefull for your life, what ye shall eate, or what ye shall drinke: nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more worth then meate? and the bodie then raiment? 26 Behold the foules of the heauen: for they sowe not, neither reape, nor carie into the barnes: yet your heauenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better then they? 27 Which of you by taking care is able to adde one cubite vnto his stature? 28 And why care ye for raiment? Learne howe the lilies of the fielde doe growe: they are not wearied, neither spinne: 29 Yet I say vnto you, that euen Salomon in all his glorie was not arayed like one of these. 30 Wherefore if God so clothe the grasse of the fielde which is to day, and to morowe is cast into the ouen, shall he not doe much more vnto you, O ye of litle faith? 31 Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eate? or what shall we drinke? or where with shall we be clothed? 32 (For after all these things seeke the Gentiles) for your heauenly Father knoweth, that ye haue neede of all these things. 33 But seeke ye first the kingdome of God, and his righteousnesse, and all these things shall be ministred vnto you. 34 Care not then for the morowe: for the morowe shall care for it selfe: the day hath ynough with his owne griefe.

Matthew 6:16-18

16 Moreouer, when ye fast, looke not sowre as the hypocrites: for they disfigure their faces, that they might seeme vnto men to fast. Verely I say vnto you, that they haue their rewarde. 17 But when thou fastest, anoint thine head, and wash thy face, 18 That thou seeme not vnto men to fast, but vnto thy Father which is in secret: and thy Father which seeth in secret, will rewarde thee openly.
