John 3:16

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.

Luke 16:19-31

19 There was a certaine riche man, which was clothed in purple and fine linnen, and fared well and delicately euery day. 20 Also there was a certaine begger named Lazarus, which was laide at his gate full of sores, 21 And desired to bee refreshed with the crommes that fell from the riche mans table: yea, and the dogges came and licked his sores. 22 And it was so that the begger died, and was caried by the Angels into Abrahams bosome. The rich man also died, and was buried. 23 And being in hell in torments, he lift vp his eyes, and sawe Abraham a farre off, and Lazarus in his bosome. 24 Then he cried, and saide, Father Abraham, haue mercie on mee, and sende Lazarus that hee may dippe the tip of his finger in water, and coole my tongue: for I am tormented in this flame. 25 But Abraham saide, Sonne, remember that thou in thy life time receiuedst thy pleasures, and likewise Lazarus paines: now therefore is he comforted, and thou art tormented. 26 Besides all this, betweene you and vs there is a great gulfe set, so that they which would goe from hence to you, can not: neither can they come from thence to vs. 27 Then he said, I pray thee therfore, father, that thou wouldest sende him to my fathers house, 28 (For I haue fiue brethren) that he may testifie vnto them, least they also come into this place of torment. 29 Abraham said vnto him, They haue Moses and the Prophets: let them heare them. 30 And he sayde, Nay, father Abraham: but if one came vnto them from the dead, they will amend their liues. 31 Then he saide vnto him, If they heare not Moses and the Prophets, neither will they be persuaded, though one rise from the dead againe.

Ephesians 6:12

12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, and against the worldly gouernours, the princes of the darkenesse of this worlde, against spirituall wickednesses, which are in ye hie places.

Ephesians 6:1

1 Children, obey your parents in the Lord: for this is right.

1 Peter 2:1-25

1 Wherefore, laying aside all maliciousnes, and all guile, and dissimulation, and enuie, and all euill speaking, 2 As newe borne babes desire that sincere milke of the woorde, that yee may growe thereby, 3 Because yee haue tasted that the Lord is bountifull. 4 To whome comming as vnto a liuing stone disallowed of men, but chosen of God and precious, 5 Yee also as liuely stones, bee made a spirituall house, an holy Priesthoode to offer vp spirituall sacrifices acceptable to God by Iesus Christ. 6 Wherefore also it is conteyned in the Scripture, Beholde, I put in Sion a chiefe corner stone, elect and precious: and hee that beleeueth therein, shall not be ashamed. 7 Vnto you therefore which beleeue, it is precious: but vnto them which be disobedient, the stone which the builders disallowed, the same is made the head of the corner, 8 And a stone to stumble at, and a rocke of offence, euen to them which stumble at the woorde, being disobedient, vnto the which thing they were euen ordeined. 9 But yee are a chosen generation, a royall Priesthoode, an holy nation, a people set at libertie, that yee shoulde shewe foorth the vertues of him that hath called you out of darkenesse into his marueilous light, 10 Which in time past were not a people, yet are nowe the people of God: which in time past were not vnder mercie, but nowe haue obteined mercie. 11 Dearely beloued, I beseeche you, as strangers and pilgrims, abstaine from fleshly lusts, which fight against the soule, 12 And haue your conuersation honest among the Gentiles, that they which speake euill of you as of euill doers, may by your good woorkes which they shall see, glorifie God in the day of visitation. 13 Therefore submit your selues vnto all maner ordinance of man for the Lordes sake, whether it be vnto the King, as vnto the superiour, 14 Or vnto gouernours, as vnto them that are sent of him, for the punishment of euill doers, and for the praise of them that doe well. 15 For so is the will of God, that by well doing ye may put to silence the ignorance of the foolish men, 16 As free, and not as hauing the libertie for a cloke of maliciousnesse, but as the seruauntes of God. 17 Honour all men: loue brotherly fellowship: feare God: honour the King. 18 Seruaunts, be subiect to your masters with all feare, not onely to the good and courteous, but also to the froward. 19 For this is thanke worthie, if a man for conscience toward God endure griefe, suffering wrongfully. 20 For what praise is it, if when ye be buffeted for your faultes, yee take it paciently? but and if when ye doe well, ye suffer wrong and take it paciently, this is acceptable to God. 21 For hereunto ye are called: for Christ also suffred for you, leauing you an ensample that ye should follow his steppes. 22 Who did no sinne, neither was there guile found in his mouth. 23 Who when hee was reuiled, reuiled not againe: when hee suffered, hee threatned not, but comitted it to him that iudgeth righteously. 24 Who his owne selfe bare our sinnes in his body on the tree, that we being dead to sinne, should liue in righteousnesse: by whose stripes ye were healed. 25 For ye were as sheepe going astray: but are nowe returned vnto the shepheard and Bishop of your soules.

Proverbs 16:28-30

28 A frowarde person soweth strife: and a tale teller maketh diuision among princes. 29 A wicked man deceiueth his neighbour, and leadeth him into the way that is not good. 30 He shutteth his eyes to deuise wickednes: he moueth his lippes, and bringeth euil to passe.

Proverbs 24:1-34

1 Be not thou enuious against euill men, neither desire to be with them. 2 For their heart imagineth destruction, and their lippes speake mischiefe. 3 Through wisdome is an house builded, and with vnderstanding it is established. 4 And by knowledge shall the chambers bee filled with all precious, and pleasant riches. 5 A wise man is strong: for a man of vnderstanding encreaseth his strength. 6 For with counsel thou shalt enterprise thy warre, and in the multitude of them that can giue counsell, is health. 7 Wisdome is hie to a foole: therefore he can not open his mouth in the gate. 8 Hee that imagineth to doe euill, men shall call him an autour of wickednes. 9 The wicked thought of a foole is sinne, and the scorner is an abomination vnto men. 10 If thou bee faint in the day of aduersitie, thy strength is small. 11 Deliuer them that are drawen to death: wilt thou not preserue them that are led to be slaine? 12 If thou say, Beholde, we knew not of it: he that pondereth the heartes, doeth not hee vnderstand it? and hee that keepeth thy soule, knoweth he it not? will not he also recompense euery man according to his workes? 13 My sonne, eate hony, for it is good, and the hony combe, for it is sweete vnto thy mouth. 14 So shall the knowledge of wisdome be vnto thy soule, if thou finde it, and there shall be an ende, and thine hope shall not be cut off. 15 Laye no waite, O wicked man, against the house of the righteous, and spoyle not his resting place. 16 For a iust man falleth seuen times, and riseth againe: but the wicked fall into mischiefe. 17 Bee thou not glad when thine enemie falleth, and let not thine heart reioyce when hee stumbleth, 18 Least the Lord see it, and it displease him, and he turne his wrath from him. 19 Fret not thy selfe because of the malicious, neither be enuious at the wicked. 20 For there shall bee none ende of plagues to the euill man: the light of the wicked shall bee put out. 21 My sonne feare the Lord, and the King, and meddle not with them that are sedicious. 22 For their destruction shall rise suddenly, and who knoweth the ruine of them both? 23 ALSO THESE THINGS PERTEINE TO THE WISE, It is not good to haue respect of any person in iudgement. 24 He that saith to the wicked, Thou art righteous, him shall the people curse, and the multitude shall abhorre him. 25 But to them that rebuke him, shall be pleasure, and vpon them shall come the blessing of goodnesse. 26 They shall kisse the lippes of him that answereth vpright wordes. 27 Prepare thy worke without, and make readie thy thinges in the fielde, and after, builde thine house. 28 Be not a witnes against thy neighbour without cause: for wilt thou deceiue with thy lippes? 29 Say not, I wil doe to him, as he hath done to mee, I will recompence euery man according to his worke. 30 I passed by the fielde of the slouthfull, and by the vineyarde of the man destitute of vnderstanding. 31 And lo, it was al growen ouer with thornes, and nettles had couered the face thereof, and the stone wall thereof was broken downe. 32 Then I behelde, and I considered it well: I looked vpon it, and receiued instruction. 33 Yet a litle sleepe, a litle slumber, a litle folding of the handes to sleepe. 34 So thy pouertie commeth as one that traueileth by the way, and thy necessitie like an armed man.

Matthew 5:9

9 Blessed are the peace makers: for they shall be called the children of God.

Romans 12:18

18 If it bee possible, as much as in you is, haue peace with all men.

Proverbs 20:3

3 It is a mans honour to cease from strife: but euery foole will be medling.

Matthew 5:44

44 But I say vnto you, Loue your enemies: blesse them that curse you: doe good to them that hate you, and pray for them which hurt you, and persecute you,

Proverbs 6:16-19

16 These sixe things doeth the Lord hate: yea, his soule abhorreth seuen: 17 The hautie eyes, a lying tongue, and the hands that shed innocent blood, 18 An heart that imagineth wicked enterprises, feete that be swift in running to mischiefe, 19 A false witnesse that speaketh lyes, and him that rayseth vp contentions among brethren.

Romans 16:17

17 Now I beseech you brethren, marke them diligently which cause diuision and offences, contrary to the doctrine which ye haue learned, and auoide them.
