1 A songe of the stayres of Dauid: Beholde, howe good and ioyfull a thing it is, brethren to dwell together in vnitye. It is lyke the precyous oyntement vpon the heade, that ranne downe vnto the beerd: euen vnto Aarons beerd, and wente downe to the skyrtes of hys clothynge. 2 Lyke the dewe of Hermon, which fell vpon the hyll of Sion. 3 For there the Lord promised hys blessynge, and lyfe for euermore.

13 Ye are the salt of the earth: But yf the salt haue lost the saltnes, what shalbe seasoned therwith? It is thence forth good for nothynge, but to be cast out, and to be troaden downe of men. 14 Ye are the light of the world. A cytie that is set on an hyll cannot be hyd, 15 nether do men lyght a candell, and put it vnder a busshell, but on a candelstyck, and it geueth light vnto all that are in the house. 16 Let your light so shyne before men. That they maye se your good worckes, & gloryfy your father, which is in heauen.
3 that nothinge be done thorowe stryfe or of vayne glory, but in mekenes of mynde, let euery man esteme another better then hym selfe. 4 Loke not ye euery man on hys awne thinges, but euery man on the thinges that are other mens. 5 Let the same mynde be in you, that was also in Christ Iesu: 6 which whan he was in the shape of God, thought it no robbery to be equall with God 7 Neuerthelesse he made hym selfe of no reputacion, takynge on hym the shape of a seruaunte, and became lyke vnto men, 8 and was founde in his apparell as a man. He humbled him selfe, and became obedient vnto the deeth, euen the deeth of the crosse. 9 Wherfore, God also hath exalted him on hye, and geuen him a name which is aboue all names: 10 that in the name of Iesus euery knee shulde bowe, both of thinges in heauen and thynges in erth and thynges vnder the erth, 11 and that all tonges shulde confesse, that Iesus Christ is the Lorde, vnto the prayse of God the father. 12 Wherfore (my dearly beloued) as ye haue alwayes obeyed, not when I was present onely, but nowe moche more in myne absence, euen so worcke out youre awne saluacion with feare and tremblyng. 13 For it is God, which worketh in you, both the wyll and also the dede, euen of good wyll. 14 Do all thynge with out murmuringe, & dysputynge, 15 that ye maye be soche as no man came complayne on: and vnfayned sonnes of God without rebuke, in the myddes of a croked and peruerse nacyon: amonge whom se that ye shyne as lyghtes in the worlde, 16 holdynge faste the worde of lyfe, that I maye reioyce in the daye of Chryst, howe that I haue not runne in vayne, nether haue laboured in vayne.

37 Iesus sayd vnto hym: Thou shalt loue the Lord thy God wyth all thy herte, and wyth all thy soule, & wyth all thy mynde. 38 This is the fyrst & greate commaundement. 39 And the seconde is lyke vnto it. Thou shalt loue thyne neyboure as thy self. 40 In these two commaundementes hange all the lawe and the Prophetes.

Let him that teacheth take hede to hys doctryne. 8 Let hym that exhorteth, geue attendaunce to his exhortacion. If eny man geue, let hym do it with synglenes. Let hym that ruleth, do it wit diligence. If eny man shewe mercy, let hym do it with cherfulnes. 9 Let loue be without dissimulacion Hate that which is euyll & cleaue vnto that which is good. 10 Be kynd one to another wich brotherly loue. In geuynge honoure, go one before another. 11 Be not slouthfull in the busynes which ye haue in hande. Be feruent in the sprete. Applye youre selues to the tyme. 12 Reioyce in hope. Be pacient in tribulacion. Continue in prayer. 13 Distribute vnto the necessite of the sayntes: be readie to harboure.
9 Therfore, two are better then one, for they maye well enioye the profyt of theyr laboure. 10 For If one of them fall, his companyon helpeth him vp agayne: But wo is him that is alone, for yf he fall, he hath not another to helpe him vp. 11 Agayne, when two slepe together, they are warme: but how can a body be warme alone? 12 One maye be ouercome, but two maye make resistaunce: A threfold cable is not lyghtly broken.
42 And they continued in the Apostles doctrine and felowshyp, & in breakynge of bread, and in prayers. 43 And feare came ouer euery soule. And many wondres & signes were shewed by the Apostles. 44 And all that beleued, kept them selues together, & had all thynges commen, 45 and solde their possessions and goodes, and parted them to all men, as euery man had nede. 46 And they continued dayly with one accorde in the temple, & brake bread from house to house, & dyd eate their meate together, wt gladnes & singlenes of hert, 47 praysinge God, and had fauour with all the people. And the Lorde added to the congregacion dayly, soch as shulde be saued.
2 Beare ye one anothers burthen, and so fulfyll the lawe of Christ.
