Psalms 77:1-20

1 For the excellent musician Ieduthun. A Psalme committed to Asaph. My voyce came to God, when I cryed: my voyce came to God, and he heard me. 2 In the day of my trouble I sought ye Lord: my sore ranne and ceased not in the night: my soule refused comfort. 3 I did thinke vpon God, and was troubled: I praied, and my spirit was full of anguish. Selah. 4 Thou keepest mine eyes waking: I was astonied and could not speake. 5 Then I considered the daies of olde, and the yeeres of ancient time. 6 I called to remembrance my song in the night: I communed with mine owne heart, and my spirit searched diligently. 7 Will the Lord absent him selfe for euer? and will he shewe no more fauour? 8 Is his mercie cleane gone for euer? doeth his promise faile for euermore? 9 Hath God forgotten to be mercifull? hath he shut vp his teder mercies in displeasure? Selah. 10 And I sayde, This is my death: yet I remembred the yeeres of the right hand of the most High. 11 I remembred the workes of the Lord: certainely I remembred thy wonders of olde. 12 I did also meditate all thy woorkes, and did deuise of thine actes, saying, 13 Thy way, O God, is in the Sanctuarie: who is so great a God as our God! 14 Thou art ye God that doest wonders: thou hast declared thy power among the people. 15 Thou hast redeemed thy people with thine arme, euen the sonnes of Iaakob and Ioseph. Selah. 16 The waters sawe thee, O God: the waters sawe thee, and were afraide: yea, the depths trembled. 17 The cloudes powred out water: the heauens gaue a sounde: yea, thine arrowes went abroade. 18 The voyce of thy thunder was rounde about: the lightnings lightened the worlde: the earth trembled and shooke. 19 Thy way is in the Sea, and thy paths in the great waters, and thy footesteps are not knowen. 20 Thou diddest leade thy people like sheepe by the hand of Moses and Aaron.

Proverbs 3:21-24

21 My sonne, let not these things depart from thine eyes, but obserue wisdome, and counsell. 22 So they shalbe life to thy soule, and grace vnto thy necke. 23 Then shalt thou walke safely by thy way: and thy foote shall not stumble. 24 If thou sleepest, thou shalt not bee afraide, and when thou sleepest, thy sleepe shalbe sweete.

Proverbs 3:24-26

24 If thou sleepest, thou shalt not bee afraide, and when thou sleepest, thy sleepe shalbe sweete. 25 Thou shalt not feare for any sudden feare, neither for the destruction of the wicked, when it commeth. 26 For the Lord shall be for thine assurance, and shall preserue thy foote from taking.

Luke 5:16

16 But he kept himselfe apart in the wildernes, and prayed.

John 3:1-36

1 There was nowe a man of the Pharises, named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Iewes. 2 This man came to Iesus by night, and sayd vnto him, Rabbi, we knowe ye thou art a teacher come from God: for no man could do these miracles that thou doest, except God were with him. 3 Iesus answered, and said vnto him, Verely, verely I say vnto thee, except a man be borne againe, he can not see the kingdome of God. 4 Nicodemus sayde vnto him, Howe can a man be borne which is olde? can he enter into his mothers wombe againe, and be borne? 5 Iesus answered, Verely, verely I say vnto thee, except that a man be borne of water and of the Spirite, hee can not enter into the kingdome of God. 6 That which is borne of the flesh, is flesh: and that that is borne of the Spirit, is spirit. 7 Marueile not that I said to thee, Yee must be borne againe. 8 The winde bloweth where it listeth, and thou hearest the sound thereof, but canst not tell whence it commeth, and whither it goeth: so is euery man that is borne of the Spirit. 9 Nicodemus answered, and said vnto him, Howe can these things be? 10 Iesus answered, and saide vnto him, Art thou a teacher of Israel, and knowest not these things? 11 Verely, verely I say vnto thee, wee speake that we know, and testifie that we haue seene: but yee receiue not our witnesse. 12 If when I tel you earthly things, ye beleeue not, howe should yee beleeue, if I shall tel you of heauenly things? 13 For no man ascendeth vp to heauen, but he that hath descended from heauen, that Sonne of man which is in heauen. 14 And as Moses lift vp the serpent in the wildernesse, so must that Sonne of man be lift vp, 15 That whosoeuer beleeueth in him, shoulde not perish, but haue eternall life. 16 For God so loued the worlde, that hee hath giuen his onely begotten Sonne, that whosoeuer beleeueth in him, should not perish, but haue euerlasting life. 17 For God sent not his Sonne into the world, that he should condemne the world, but that the world through him might be saued. 18 Hee that beleeueth in him, is not condemned: but hee that beleeueth not, is condemned already, because he hath not beleeued in the Name of that onely begotten Sonne of God. 19 And this is the condemnation, that that light came into the worlde, and men loued darknesse rather then that light, because their deedes were euill. 20 For euery man that euill doeth, hateth the light, neither commeth to light, least his deedes should be reprooued. 21 But he that doeth trueth, commeth to the light, that his deedes might bee made manifest, that they are wrought according to God. 22 After these things, came Iesus and his disciples into the lande of Iudea, and there taried with them, and baptized. 23 And Iohn also baptized in Enon besides Salim, because there was much water there: and they came, and were baptized. 24 For Iohn was not yet cast into prison. 25 Then there arose a question betweene Iohns disciples and the Iewes, about purifying. 26 And they came vnto Iohn, and saide vnto him, Rabbi, he that was with thee beyond Iorden, to whom thou barest witnesse, behold, he baptizeth, and all men come to him. 27 Iohn answered, and saide, A man can receiue nothing, except it be giuen him from heauen. 28 Yee your selues are my witnesses, that I sayde, I am not that Christ, but that I am sent before him. 29 He that hath the bride, is the bridegrome: but the friend of the bridegrome which standeth and heareth him, reioyceth greatly, because of the bridegromes voyce. This my ioy therefore is fulfilled. 30 He must increase, but I must decrease. 31 Hee that is come from an hie, is aboue all: he that is of the earth, is of the earth, and speaketh of the earth: hee that is come from heauen, is aboue all. 32 And what hee hath seene and heard, that he testifieth: but no man receiueth his testimonie. 33 He that hath receiued his testimonie, hath sealed that God is true. 34 For hee whome God hath sent, speaketh the woordes of God: for God giueth him not the Spirit by measure. 35 The Father loueth the Sonne, and hath giuen all things into his hande. 36 Hee that beleeueth in the Sonne, hath euerlasting life, and hee that obeyeth not the Sonne, shall not see life, but the wrath of God abideth on him.

John 14:1-31

1 Let not your heart be troubled: ye beleeue in God, beleeue also in me. 2 In my Fathers house are many dwelling places: if it were not so, I would haue tolde you: I go to prepare a place for you. 3 And if I go to prepare a place for you, I wil come againe, and receiue you vnto my selfe, that where I am, there may ye be also. 4 And whither I go, ye know, and the way ye knowe. 5 Thomas sayd vnto him, Lord, we know not whither thou goest: how can we then know ye way? 6 Iesus sayd vnto him, I am that Way, and that Trueth, and that Life. No man commeth vnto the Father, but by me. 7 If ye had knowen mee, ye should haue knowen my Father also: and from henceforth ye know him, and haue seene him. 8 Philippe sayd vnto him, Lord, shewe vs thy Father, and it sufficeth vs. 9 Iesus sayd vnto him, I haue bene so long time with you, and hast thou not knowen mee, Philippe? he that hath seene me, hath seene my Father: how then sayest thou, Shewe vs thy Father? 10 Beleeuest thou not, that I am in the Father, and the Father is in me? The wordes that I speake vnto you, I speake not of my selfe: but the Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the workes. 11 Beleeue me, that I am in the Father, and the Father is in me: at the least, beleeue me for the very workes sake. 12 Verely, verely I say vnto you, he that beleeueth in me, the workes that I doe, hee shall doe also, and greater then these shall he doe: for I goe vnto my Father. 13 And whatsoeuer ye aske in my Name, that will I doe, that the Father may be glorified in the Sonne. 14 If ye shall aske any thing in my Name, I will doe it. 15 If ye loue me, keepe my comandements, 16 And I wil pray the Father, and he shall giue you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for euer, 17 Euen the Spirit of trueth, whome the world can not receiue, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye knowe him: for he dwelleth with you, and shalbe in you. 18 I will not leaue you fatherles: but I will come to you. 19 Yet a litle while, and the world shall see me no more, but ye shall see me: because I liue, ye shall liue also. 20 At that day shall ye knowe that I am in my Father, and you in me, and I in you. 21 He that hath my commandements, and keepeth them, is he that loueth me: and he that loueth me, shall be loued of my Father: and I will loue him, and wil shewe mine owne selfe to him. 22 Iudas sayd vnto him (not Iscariot) Lord, what is the cause that thou wilt shewe thy selfe vnto vs, and not vnto the world? 23 Iesus answered, and sayd vnto him, If any man loue me, he will keepe my worde, and my Father will loue him, and we wil come vnto him, and wil dwell with him. 24 He that loueth me not, keepeth not my wordes, and the worde which ye heare, is not mine, but the Fathers which sent me. 25 These things haue I spoken vnto you, being present with you. 26 But the Comforter, which is the holy Ghost, whom the Father wil send in my Name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, which I haue tolde you. 27 Peace I leaue with you: my peace I giue vnto you: not as the worlde giueth, giue I vnto you. Let not your heart be troubled, nor feare. 28 Ye haue heard howe I saide vnto you, I goe away, and will come vnto you. If ye loued me, ye would verely reioyce, because I said, I goe vnto the Father: for the Father is greater then I. 29 And nowe haue I spoken vnto you, before it come, that when it is come to passe, ye might beleeue. 30 Hereafter will I not speake many things vnto you: for the prince of this world commeth, and hath nought in me. 31 But it is that the world may knowe that I loue my Father: and as the Father hath commanded me, so I doe. Arise, let vs goe hence.

Romans 12:2

2 And fashion not your selues like vnto this worlde, but bee yee changed by the renewing of your minde, that ye may prooue what that good, and acceptable and perfect will of God is.

2 Corinthians 6:4-5

4 But in all things we approue our selues as the ministers of God, in much patience, in afflictions, in necessities, in distresses, 5 In stripes, in prisons, in tumults, in labours,

James 1:5-7

5 If any of you lacke wisedome, let him aske of God, which giueth to all men liberally, and reprocheth no man, and it shalbe giuen him. 6 But let him aske in faith, and wauer not: for hee that wauereth, is like a waue of the sea, tost of the winde, and caried away. 7 Neither let that man thinke that hee shall receiue any thing of the Lord.

Hebrews 11:6

6 But without faith it is vnpossible to please him: for he that commeth to God, must beleeue that God is, and that he is a rewarder of them that seeke him.

Proverbs 3:21-26

21 My sonne, let not these things depart from thine eyes, but obserue wisdome, and counsell. 22 So they shalbe life to thy soule, and grace vnto thy necke. 23 Then shalt thou walke safely by thy way: and thy foote shall not stumble. 24 If thou sleepest, thou shalt not bee afraide, and when thou sleepest, thy sleepe shalbe sweete. 25 Thou shalt not feare for any sudden feare, neither for the destruction of the wicked, when it commeth. 26 For the Lord shall be for thine assurance, and shall preserue thy foote from taking.

Proverbs 3:24

24 If thou sleepest, thou shalt not bee afraide, and when thou sleepest, thy sleepe shalbe sweete.

Psalms 4:8

8 I will lay mee downe, and also sleepe in peace: for thou, Lord, onely makest me dwell in safetie.
