Leviticus 26:1-46

1 Ye shall make you no ydolles nor grauen ymage, nether reare you vp any stone, nether shall ye sett vp any ymage of stone in your land to worshippe it: for I am the Lord youre God: 2 ye shall kepe my Sabbothes, & feare my sanctuary: for I am the Lorde. 3 If ye walke in myne ordinaunces and kepe my commaundementes, and do them, 4 I wyll sende you rayne in the ryght ceason and the lande shall yelde her encrease, and the trees of the felde shall geue theyr frute. 5 And the thresshynge shall reach vnto wyne haruest, and the wyneharuest shall reach vnto sowynge tyme, and ye shall eate your bread in plenteousnes, and dwell in youre lande peasably. 6 And I wyll sende peace in the lande, & ye shall slepe without any man to make you a frayde. And I wyll rydd euell beastes out of the lande, and there shall no swerde goo thorow out youre lande. 7 And ye shall chase youre enemyes, and they shall fall before you vpon the swerde. 8 And fyue of you shall chace an hundred, & an hundred of you shall put ten thousande to flyghte, and youre enemyes shall fall before you vpon the swerde. 9 For I will haue respect vnto you, and make you encrease and multiplye you, and sett vp my couenaunt with you. 10 And ye shall eate olde stoare, and carye out olde for the newe. 11 And I wyll make my dwellynge place amonge you, & my soule shall not lothe you. 12 I wyll walke amonge you, and wylbe youre God, and ye shalbe my people. 13 I am the Lorde youre God, whyche broughte you out of the lande of Egypte, that ye shulde not be theyr bondemen, and I haue broken the cheynes of your yoke, and made you go vp ryghte. 14 But and yf ye wyll not harken vnto me, nor wyll do all these my commaundementes: 15 And yf ye shall despise myne ordinaunces, ether yf youre soule abhorre my lawes, so that ye wyll not do all my commaundementes, but breake myne appoyntment, 16 I also will do thys vnto you. For I will bring vpon you fearfulnesse, swellynge of body, and the burnynge agewe, to consume youre eyes, & gendre sorowe of hert. And ye shall sowe youre seed in vayne, for youre enemyes shall eate it, 17 And I wyll set my face agenste you, and ye shall fall before youre enemyes, & they that hate you, shall raygne ouer you and ye shall flee, when no man foloweth you. 18 And yf ye will not yet for all this herken vnto me, then will I punysh you seuen tymes more for youre synnes, 19 and wyll breake the pryde of youre stubburnesse. And I wyll make youre heauen as yron, and youre erth as brasse. 20 And youre laboure shalbe spent in vayne. For youre lande shall not geue hyr encrease, nether shall the trees of the lande geue theyr frutes. 21 And yf ye walke contrary vnto me, and wyll not herken vnto me, I wyll brynge seuen tymes moo plages vpon you, accordinge to youre synnes. 22 I will also sende in wilde beastes vpon you, which shall robbe you of youre children, and destroye youre catell, and make you fewe in nombre, and cause youre hye wayes to growe vnto a wyldernesse. 23 And yf ye maye not be refourmed by these thynges but shall walke contrarye vnto me, 24 then wyll I also walke contrarye vnto you, and wyll punish you yet seuen tymes for youre synnes. 25 And I wyll sende a swerde vpon you, that shall auenge my testament And when ye are gathered together wythin youre cyties, I wyll sende the pestilence amonge you, and ye shalbe delyuered into the hande of the enemye. 26 And when I haue broken the staffe of youre bread: ten wyues shall bake youre bread in one ouen, and they shall delyuer you youre bread agayne by weyght ye shall eate, and not be satisfyed. 27 And yf ye wyll not yet for all thys herken vnto me, but shall walke agaynst me, 28 I will walke contrarye vnto you also in indignacyon, and wyll chastice you seuen tymes for youre synnes. 29 And ye shall eate the flesh of youre sonnes and the fleshe of youre daughters shall ye deuoure. 30 I wyll destroye youre hye places, and roote out youre ymages, and cast youre carkasses vpon the bodyes of youre ydolles, and my soule shall abhorre you. 31 And I wyll make your cyties desolate, and brynge youre sanctuarye vnto nought, and wyll not smell the swetnesse of youre odoures. 32 I wyll brynge the lande vnto a wyldernesse, and youre enemyes which dwell therin, shall wondre at it. 33 And I will strawe you amonge the hethen, and will drawe out a swerde after you, and youre lande shalbe wast, and youre cyties desolate. 34 Then shall the lande enioye her Sabbothes, as longe as it lyeth voyde, and ye shalbe in your enemyes lande: euen then shall the lande rest, and reioyse in her Sabbothes. 35 As longe as it lyeth voyde it shall rest, because it dyd not reste in youre Sabbothes, when ye dwelt vpon it. 36 And vpon them that are left alyue of you, I wyll sende a fayntnesse into theyr hertes in the lande of theyr enemyes: & the sounde of a shakyng leef, shall chace them, and whan they flee the swerde, they shall fall: no man folowinge vpon them. 37 They shall fall one vpon another, as it were before a swerde, euen no man folowynge vpon them, and ye shall haue no power to stande before your enemyes: 38 And ye shall perish amonge the hethen, & the lande of youre enemyes shall eate you vp. 39 And they that are left of you, shall pyne awaye in their vnryghteousnes, euen in their enemyes lande, and in the mysdeades of their fathers shall they consume. 40 And they shall confesse their misdeades and the mysdeades of their fathers for their trespace, which they haue trespaced agaynst me, and for that also that they haue walked contrarye vnto me. 41 Therfore I also wyll walke contrary vnto them, and wyll brynge them into the lande of their enemyes. And then at the leest waye their vncircumcysed hertes shall be tamed, and they shall make an attonement for their mysdeades. 42 And I will remembre my couenaunt, with Iacob, and my bonde with Isahac, and myne appointment with Abraham, and will thynke on the lande. 43 The lande shall be lefte of them, and shall enioye her Sabbothes, whyle she lyeth wast without them. And they shall make an attonement for their misdeades, because they despised my lawes, and because their soule refused myne ordinaunces: 44 And yet for all that when they be in the lande of their enemyes, I will not cast them awaye, neyther will abhorre them, to destroye them vtterly, and to breake myne appoyntment with them: for I am the Lorde their God. 45 I wyll for their sakes remembre the couenaunt made vnto their fathers, whom I brought out of the lande of Egypte in the syghte of the hethen, that I myght be their God: I am the Lorde. 46 These are the ordinaunces, and iudgementes, and lawes, which the Lorde made betwene him and the children of Israel in mount Sinai, by the hande of Moses.

Matthew 4:1-25

1 Then was Iesus led awaye of the sprite: into wyldernes: to be tempted of the deuell. 2 And when he had fasted fourty dayes and fourty nyghtes, he was at the last an hungred. 3 And when the tempter came to hym, he sayde: yf thou be the sonne of God commaunde, that these stones be made bread: 4 But he answered and sayde: it is wrytten, man shall not lyue by bread onlye, but by euery worde that proceadeth out of the mouth of God. 5 Then the deuyll taketh him vp into the holy cytie, & setteth hym on a pynacle of the temple, 6 and sayeth vnto him: yf thou be the sonne of God, cast thy selfe downe headling. For it is written he shall geue hys angels charge ouer the, & with their handes they shal holde the vp, lest at any tyme thou dash thy fote agaynst a stone. 7 And Iesus sayde to hym: it is wrytten agayne: Thou shalt not tempte the Lorde thy God. 8 Agayne, the deuel taketh him vp into an exceading hye mountayne, and sheweth him all the kyngdomes of the world, and the glory of them, 9 and sayeth vnto hym: all these will I geue the, yf thou wylt fall downe, & worshyppe me. 10 Then sayeth Iesus vnto hym Auoyde Satan. For it is written: Thou shalt worshyp the Lorde thy God, and hym onely shalt thou serue. 11 Then the deuyl leaueth him, and behold, the angels came, & ministed vnto him. 12 When Iesus had heard that Iohn was taken, he departed into Galyle, 13 and left Nazareth, and went and dwelt in Capernaum: whych is a cytie vpon the see coast; in the borders of Zabulon & Neptalim: 14 that it myght be fulfilled which was spoken by Esay the prophet, saying: 15 The lande of Zabulon & Neptalim, by the waye of the see beyonde Iordan, Galile of the Gentils: 16 the people which satt in darckenesse and in the shadowe of death, sawe great light: & to them which sat in the region & shadowe of death, is the light sprong vp. 17 From that tyme, Iesus beganne to preache, and to saye: repent, for the kyngdome of heauen is at hande. 18 As Iesus walked by the see of Galile he sawe two brethren: Symon, which was called Peter, & Andrew his brother, castyng a neet into the see (for they were fisshers) 19 and he sayth vnto them: folowe me, and I wyll make you fisshers of men. 20 And they streyght waye lefte the nettes, and folowed hym. 21 And whan he was gone forth fro thence, he sawe other two brethren, Iames the sonne of Zebede, & Iohn his brother, in the shyp wt Zebede their father, mending their nettes, & he called them. 22 And they immediatly lefte the shyp and theyr father, and folowed hym. 23 And Iesus went about all Galile, teachynge in their synagoges, & preachynge the gospel of the kingdome, and healing all maner of sycknes, & all maner of disease amonge the people. 24 And hys fame spreed abroade throughout al Siria. And they brought vnto him all syck people that were taken with dyuers diseases and grypynges, and them that were possessed with deuyls: and those which were lunatyke, & those that had the palsye: & he healed them. 25 And ther folowed hym great multitudes of people, from Galile, and from the ten cytes, and from Ierusalem, and from Iewry, and from the regions that lye beyonde Iordan.

Matthew 26:52-54

52 Then sayd Iesus vnto him: put vp thy swearde into his sheath. For All they that take the swearde, shall perishe with the swearde. 53 Thinkest thou that I cannot now praye to my father, and he shall geue me more then twelue Legions of angels? 54 But how then shall the scriptures be fulfylled? for this must it be.

Mark 7:1-37

1 And the Pharyses came together vnto hym, & dyuers of the Scrybes whych came from Ierusalem. 2 And when they sawe certaine of his discyples eate bread wyth commen (that is to saye, with vnwesshen) handes, they complayned. 3 For the Pharyses and all the Iewes, excepte they wasshe theyr handes ofte, eate not, obseruyng the tradicyons of the elders. 4 And when they come from the market, except they washe, they eate not. And many other thynges there be, which they haue taken vpon them to obserue, as the wasshynge of cuppes and cruses, and, brasen vessels, and of tables. 5 Then asked hym the Pharyses & Scribes: why walke not thy dyscyples accordyng to the custome, ordeyned by the elders, but eate bread wyth vnwasshen handes? 6 He answered & sayd vnto them: well prophesyed Esayas of you, ypocrytes, as it is wrytten: Thys people honoreth me wyth theyr lyppes, but theyr herte is farre from me: 7 howbeit, in vayne do they serue me, teachyng the doctrines and commaundementes of men. 8 For ye laye the commaundement of God a parte, & obserue the constitucyons of men, as the wesshinge of cruses & of cuppes, and many other soch lyke thynges ye do. 9 And he sayde vnto them: well, ye cast a syde the commaundement of God, to mayntayne youre awne constitucyons. 10 For Moses sayd: honoure thy father & thy mother: & whoso curseth father or mother, let him dye the death. 11 But ye saye: a man shall saye to father or mother, Corban: whych is: what gyfte soeuer commeth fro me, shalbe for thy profyt. 12 And so ye suffre him no more to do ought for hys father or his mother, 13 and make the worde of God of none effecte, through youre awne constitucyon whych ye haue ordeyned. And many soche thynges do ye. 14 And whan he had called all the people vnto hym, he sayde vnto them: herken vnto me, euery one of you, and vnderstande. 15 There is nothynge wyth out a man that can defyle him, when it entreth into him: but the thynges whych proceade out of a man, those are they that defyle the man. 16 If eny man haue eares to heare, let hym heare. 17 And when he came in to the house awaye from the people, his discyples asked him of the symilitude. 18 And he sayd vnto them: are ye also so greatly wyth out vnderstandinge? Do ye not yet perceaue, that what soeuer thynge from wtout, entreth into a man, it cannot defyle him, 19 because it entreth not into his hert but into the bely: & goeth out into the draught, pourgyng out all meates? 20 And he sayde: that whych commeth out of a man 21 defyleth the man. For from wyth in, euen out of the herte of men proceade euyll thoughtes, aduoutry, fornicacyon, murther, 22 theft, couetousnes, fraude, deceyte, vnclennes, a wycked eye, blasphemyes, pryde, folyshnes: 23 all these euyll thynges come from wt in, and defyle a man. 24 And from thence he rose, & went into the borders of Tyre & Sidon: & entred into an house, & wolde that no man shuld haue knowen. But he coulde not be hyd. 25 For a certayne woman (whose daughter had a foule sprete) as soone as she heard of hym, came, and fell at hys fete. 26 The woman was a Greke out of the nacyon of Syrophenicia, & she besought him, that he wolde cast out the deuyl from her daughter. 27 But Iesus sayd vnto her: let the chyldren fyrst be fedd. For it is not mete, to take the chyldrens bread, and to cast it vnto whelpes. 28 She answered & sayde vnto hym: euen so lorde, neuerthelesse, the whelpes also eat vnder the table of the chyldrens cromes. 29 And he sayde vnto her: for thys sayinge go thy waye, the deuyl is gone out of thy daughter. 30 And when she was come home to her house, she founde that the deuyll was departed, and her daughter lyinge on the bedd. 31 And he departed agayne from the coastes of Tyre and Sidon, and came vnto the see of Galile thorow the myddes of the coastes of the ten cyties. 32 And they broughte vnto him one that was deaffe and had an impediment in hys speche, and they prayd hym to put his hande vpon him. 33 And when he had taken hym asyde from the people, he put hys fyngers into hys eares, and dyd spyt, & touched hys tonge, 34 and loked vp to heauen, and syghed, and sayde vnto hym: Ephata, that is to saye, be opened. 35 And strayght waye his eares were opened, and the stryng of his tounge was lowsed, and he spake playne. 36 And he commaunded them, that they shulde tell no man. But the more he forbad them, so moch the more a greate deale they publisshed, 37 saying: He hath done all thynges well, he hath made both the deaffe to heare, and the dome to speake.

26 But the comforter which is the holy ghost whom my father wil sende in my name, he shal teach you all thinges, & bryng all thinges to your remembraunce whatsoeuer I haue sayd vnto you.

Romans 13:4

4 For he is the mynyster of God, for thy welth. But and yf thou do that which is, euyll, then feare: for he beareth not the sweard for nought: for he is the mynister of God, to take vengeaunce on hym that doth euyll.
