Colossians 1:16-17

16 For by him were all thynges created, that are in heuen, and that are in erth: visyble and inuisyble, whether they be maieste or lorde shyppe, ether rule or power. All thynges were creatyd by hym and for hym, 17 & he is before all thynges, and by him all thynges haue theyr beynge.

Hebrews 13:7

7 Remember them whych haue the ouersyght of you, whych haue spoken vnto you the worde of God. Whose fayth se that ye folowe, and consider the ende of theyr conuersacyon.

Ecclesiastes 3:1-22

1 Euery thinge hath a tyme, yee all that is vnder the heauen, hath his conuenient season. 2 There is a tyme to be borne, and a tyme to dye. There is a tyme to plante and a tyme to pleke vp the thing, that is planted. 3 A time to slaye, and a time to make whole. A tyme to breake downe, & a tyme to build vp. 4 A tyme to wepe, and a tyme to laugh: A tyme to mourne, and a tyme to daunse. 5 A time to cast awaye stones, and a tyme to gather stones together. A tyme to embrace, and a tyme to refrayne from embracing. 6 A tyme to wynne, and a tyme to lese. A tyme to spare, and a tyme to spende. 7 A tyme to cut in peces, and a tyme to sowe together. 8 A tyme to loue, and a tyme to hate. 9 What hath a man els (that doth any thing) but werynesse & labour? 10 For as touchinge the trauayle and carefulnesse whych God hath geuen vnto men, I se that he hath geuen it them, to be excercised in it. 11 All thys hath he ordened maruelous goodly, to euery thing his due tyme. He hath planted ignoraunce also in the hertes of men, that they shuld not comprehende the ground of hys worckes, which he doth from the begynning to the ende. 12 So I perceaued, that in these thinges there is nothing better for a man, then to be mery and to do well so longe as he lyueth. 13 For all that a man eateth & dryncketh, yee whatsoeuer a man enioyeth of all his labour, that same is a gyfte of God. 14 I consydered also that whatsoeuer God doth, it continueth for euer and that nothing can be put vnto it, nor taken from it, and that God doth it to the intent, that men shuld feare hym. 15 The thing that hath bene is nowe: and the thyng that is for to come, hath bene afore time, for God restoreth agayne the thynge that was past 16 Moreouer, I sawe vnder the Sunne vngodlynesse in the steade of iudgement, and iniquyte in steade of ryghteousnesse. 17 Then thought I in my minde: God shal separate the ryghteous from the vngodly, and then shalbe the tyme and iudgement of all councels and worckes. 18 I commened with myne awne hert also, concernynge the children of men: how God hath chosen them, & yet letteth them apeare: as though they were beastes: 19 for it happeneth vnto men as it doth vnto beastes, and as the one dyeth, so dyeth the other: yee they haue both one maner of breth: so that (in this) a man hath no preemynence aboue a beast, but all are subdued vnto vanytie. 20 They go all vnto one place, for as they be all of dust, so shall they all turne vnto dust agayne. 21 Who knoweth the sprete of man that goeth vpwarde, and the breth of the beast that goeth downe into the earth? 22 Wherfore I perceaue, that there is nothing better for a man, then to be ioyfull in hys laboure, for that is hys porcyon. But who wyll brynge him to se the thinge that shall come after hym?

Proverbs 24:30-32

30 I went by the felde of the slouthfull, & by the vyneiarde of the foolysh man. 31 And lo, it was all couered wt nettels, & stode full of thystles, & the stone wall was broken downe. 32 Thys I sawe, & considered it well: I loked vpon it, & toke it for a warnyng.

Romans 12:2

2 & fassyon not youre selues lyke vnto this worlde: but be ye chaunged in youre shape, by the renuyng of your mynde, that ye maye proue what thynge that good, and acceptable, and perfaycte wyll of God is.

Titus 2:3-5

3 the elder wemen lykewyse, that they be in soche rayment as be commeth holynes, not beynge false accusars, not geuen to moch wyne, but that they teache honest thynges, 4 to make the younge wemen sobre mynded, to loue theyr husbandes, to loue their chyldren, 5 to be discrete, chast, huswyfly good, obedient vnto their husbandes, that the worde of God be not euyll spoken of.

Genesis 1:1-31

1 In the begynnynge God created heauen and earthe. 2 The earth was voyde and emptye: and darcknes was vpon the face of the depe: and the sprete of God moued vpon the face of the waters. 3 And God sayde: let there be made lyght, and there was light made. 4 And God sawe the light that it was good. And God made a diuision betwene the light and darknesse. 5 And God called the light, daye: and the darknesse called he, nyght. And the euenyng and the morning was made one daye. 6 And God sayde: let there be a firmament betwene the waters: and let it make a diuision betwene waters and waters. 7 And God made the firmament, and set a diuision betwene the waters which were vnder the firmament and the waters that were aboue the firmament. And it was so. 8 And God called the firmament, Heauen. The euenynge also and the mornyng was made the second daye. 9 And God sayde: let the waters vnder heauen be gathered together into one place, that the drye lande maye be sene. And so it came to passe. 10 And God called the drye lande Earth: and the gatheryng together of waters called he the sees. And God sawe that it was good. 11 And God sayde: let the earth bring forth grene herbe, which maye engendre seed: and frutefull tre, yeldyng frute after hys kynde, whose seed maye be in it self vpon the earth. And it came to passe. 12 And the earth brought forth grene herbe, makynge seede after hys kynde: and tree yeldynge frute, whose seed was in it selfe after hys kynde. And God sawe that it was good. 13 The euenynge also and the mornynge was made the thyrde daye. 14 And God sayde: let there be made lyghtes in the firmament of heauen: and let them make a difference betwene the daye and the nyght, and let them be vnto signes, and vnto appoynted seasons, and vnto dayes, and vnto yeares. 15 And let them be vnto lyghtes in the firmament of heauen, that they maye geue lyght vpon the earthe. And so it came to passe. 16 And God made two greate lyghtes: a greater lyght to rule the daye, & a lesse lyght to rule the night (And he made) sterres also. 17 And God set them in the firmament of heauen, that they myght geue lyght vpon the earth, 18 and that they might rule the daye and the night: and to make a difference betwene the lyght and the darknes. And God sawe that it was good. 19 The euenyng also and the mornyng was made the fourth daye. 20 And God sayde: let the waters bryng forth mouynge creature that hath lyfe, and foule that maye flye vpon the earth in the face of the firmament of heauen. 21 And God created great whalles and euery lyuing and mouyng creature, which the waters brought forth after their kynde: and euery fethered foule after their kynde. And God sawe that it was good. 22 And God blessed them, sayinge: Growe & increace and fyll the waters of the see: and let fethred foules be multiplyed in the earth. 23 The euenynge also and the mornyng was made the fyfth daye. 24 And God sayde: let the earth bring forth lyuing creature after his kynde: catell, worme and beast of the erth after his kynde: and so it came to passe. 25 And God made the beast of the earth after his kynde, and catell after their kynde: and euery thynge that crepeth vpon the earth after his kynde. And God sawe that it was good. 26 And God sayde: let vs make man in oure ymage after oure lycknes, and let them haue rule of the fysh of the see: and foule of the ayre and catell, and all the earth, and of euery crepyng thyng that crepeth vpon the erth. 27 And so God created man in his awne ymage: in the ymage of God created he hym, male and female created he them. 28 And God blessed them, and God sayd vnto them: Growe and increace and replenyshe the erth, and subdue it: and haue dominion of the fish of the see, and foule of the aire: and of euery lyuing thyng that moueth vpon the earth. 29 And God sayde: Beholde, I haue geuen you euery herbe sowynge seed, which is in the vpper face of all the earth: and euery tre in the which is the frute of tree, and that soweth seed, that they maye be meate vnto you. 30 To euery beast of the earth also, and to euery byrde of the ayre, and to euery suche thinge as crepeth vpon the earth (wherin is a lyuing soule) I haue geuen all grenenes of herbe to be meat. And it came so to passe. 31 And God sawe euery thyng that he had made, and beholde, it was exceading good. The euenyng also and the mornynge was made the syxth daye.
