And Peter sayde vnto hym: Lord, dost thou wasshe my fete? 7 Iesus answered, and sayd vnto him: what I do, thou wotest not nowe, but thou shalt know herafter. 8 Peter sayeth vnto him: thou shalt neuer wasshe my fete. Iesus answered hym: yf I wasshe the not, thou hast no parte with me. 9 Symon Peter sayeth vnto hym: Lorde, not my fete onely, but also the handes and the head. 10 Iesus sayth to hym: he that is wasshed, nedeth not, saue to wasshe his fete, but is cleane euery whyt. And ye are cleane, but not all. 11 For he knewe who it was that shuld be traye hym.

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 6:1-34

1 Take heade, that ye geue not your almose in the sight of men, to the intent that ye wold be sene of them. Or els ye haue no rewarde with youre father which is in heauen. 2 Therfore, whan thou geuest thyne almes, let not trompetes be blowen before the, as the ypocrites do in the synagoges and in the stretes: for to be praysed of men. Uerely, I saye vnto you: they haue their rewarde. 3 But when thou wylt geue almes, let not thy left hande knowe what thy ryghte hande doth, 4 that thyne almes maye be in secrete: and thy father whych seeth in secrete, shall rewarde the openly. 5 And when thou prayest thou shalt not be as the ypocrytes are. For they vse to stand praieng in the synagoges, and in the corners of the stretes, that they maye be sene of men. Uerely, I saye vnto you: they haue theyr rewarde. 6 But when thou prayest entre into thy chamber, & when thou hast shut thy dore praye to thy father which is in secrete: & thy father which seeth in secrete, shall rewarde the openly. 7 But when ye praye bable not moch, as the heathen do: for they thyncke it will come to passe, that they shalbe herd for their moch bablynges sake. 8 Be not ye therfore lyke vnto them. For youre father knoweth what thinges ye haue neade of before ye aske of him: 9 after thys maner therfore praye ye. Oure father which art in heauen, halowed be thy name. 10 Lett thy kyngdome come. Thy will be fulfylled, as well in earth, as it is in heauen. 11 Geue vs this daye oure daylye bread. 12 And forgeue vs our dettes, as we forgeue oure detters. 13 And leade vs not into temptacyon: but delyuer vs from euyll. For thyne is the kyngdome and the power, and the glorye for euer. Amen. 14 Therfore, yf ye forgeue other men theyr trespasses, your heuenly father shall forgeue you. 15 But yf ye wyll not forgeue men theyr trespasses, nomore shall your father forgeue you youre trespasses. 16 Moreouer, when ye fast, be not sad as the ypocrites are. For they disfigure their faces, that it maye appeare vnto men, how that they fast. Uerely, I saye vnto you, they haue theyr rewarde. 17 But thou, when thou fastest, anoynte thyne heed, and wash thy face, 18 that it appere not vnto men, how that thou fastest: but vnto thy father, which is in secret: and thy father which seeth in secrete, shal rewarde the openly. 19 Laye not vp for your selues treasure vpon earth, where the rust and mothe doth corrupte, and where theues breake through, and steale. 20 But laye vp for you, treasures in heuen, where nether rust nor mothe doth corrupte, and where theues do not breake thorow nor steale. 21 For where your treasure is, there will youre hert be also. 22 The light of the body is the eye. Wherfore, yf thyne eye be single, all thy body shall be full of light. 23 But and yf thyne eye be wicked, all thy body shalbe full of darcknesse. Wherfore, yf the lyght that is in the be darcknes, how greate is that darcknes? 24 No man can serue two masters. For ether he shal hate the one and loue the other, or els leane to the one, and despyse the other: ye cannot serue God and Mammon. 25 Therfore I saye vnto you: be not carefull for youre lyfe, what ye shall eate or drincke, nor yet for youre bodye, what rayment ye shall put on. Is not the lyfe more worth then meat: and the body more of value then rayment? 26 Behold, the foules of the ayer: for they sowe not, nether do they reape, nor cary into the barnes: and youre heuenly father fedeth them. Are ye not moch better then they? 27 Whych of you (by takynge carefull thought) can adde one cubyte vnto hys stature? 28 And why care ye for rayment? Consydre the lylies of the felde, how they growe. They laboure not, nether do they spynne. 29 And yet I saye vnto you, that euen Salomon in all hys royalte was not arayed lyke one of these. 30 Wherfore, yf God so cloth the grasse of the felde (which though it stande to daye, is to morow cast into the fornasse) shall he not moch more do the same for you, O ye of lytle fayth? 31 Therfore, take no thought, saying: what shall we eate, or what shall we dryncke, or wherwith shall we be clothed? 32 after all these thynges do the gentyls seke. For youre heuenly father knoweth, that ye haue nede of all these thynges. 33 But rather seke ye fyrst the kyngdome of God, and the ryghteousnesse therof, and al these thinges shalbe ministred vnto you. 34 Care not then for the morow, for the morowe daye shall care for it selfe: sufficient vnto the daye, is the trauayle therof.

Matthew 6:16-18

16 Moreouer, when ye fast, be not sad as the ypocrites are. For they disfigure their faces, that it maye appeare vnto men, how that they fast. Uerely, I saye vnto you, they haue theyr rewarde. 17 But thou, when thou fastest, anoynte thyne heed, and wash thy face, 18 that it appere not vnto men, how that thou fastest: but vnto thy father, which is in secret: and thy father which seeth in secrete, shal rewarde the openly.
