Bible verses about "etiquette" | Matthew

Matthew 7:1-29

1 Ivdge not, that ye be not iudged. 2 For as ye iudge so, shall ye be iudged. And with what measur ye meate, with the same shal it be measured to you agayne. 3 Why seiste thou a moote in thy brothers eye, & perceyuest not the beame that is in thyne owne eye? 4 Or why saist thou to thy brother: suffer me to plucke out the moote out of thyne eye, & beholde a beame is in thyne owne eye? 5 Hypocrite, first caste out the beame out of thyne owne eye, and then shalte thou se clearelye to plucke out the moote out of thy brothers eye. 6 Geue not that whiche is holye, to dogges nether cast ye your pearles before swyne, lest they treade them vnder theyr feete, and the other tourne agayne and al to rent you. 7 Axe and it shalbe geuen you. Seke and ye shall fynde. Knocke & it shalbe opened vnto you. 8 For whosoeuer axeth receyueth, and he that seketh fyndethe, and to hym that knocketh, it shalbe opened. 9 Ys there any man amonge you whiche if his sonne axed hym bread, would offer him a stone? 10 Or if he axed fyshe, woulde he profer him a serpente? 11 Yf ye then whyche are euyll, can geue to youre chyldren good gyftes: howe muche more shall your father whiche is in heauen, geue good thinges to them that axe hym? 12 Therfore whatsoeuer ye woulde that men shoulde do to you, euen so do ye to them. Thys is the lawe and the Prophetes. 13 Enter in at the strayte gate: for wide is the gate and broade is the way that leadeth to destruction: and many there be whiche go in therat. 14 But strayt is the gate, and narrowe is the waye which leadeth vnto lyfe: & feawe there be that fynde it. 15 Beware of false Prophetes, whiche come to you in shepes clothing, but inwardly they are rauenynge wolues. 16 Ye shall knowe them by their fruites. Do men gaddre grapes of thornes? or figges of bryers? 17 Euen so euery good tre bryngeth forth good fruite. But a corrupt tree, bringeth forth euyll fruyte. 18 A good tree can not bringe forthe bad fruyte: nor yet a bad tree can bringe forth good fruite. 19 Euery tree that bryngeth not forthe good fruite shalbe hewen downe, and cast into the fyre. 20 Wherfore by theyr fruytes ye shal knowe them. 21 Not al they that saye vnto me, Maister Maister, shal enter into the kingdome of heauen: but he that doeth my fathers will which is in heauen. 22 Many will saye to me in that daye: Maister, maister, haue we not in thy name prophesied? And in thy name haue cast out deuylles? And in thy name haue done many miracles? 23 And then will I knowledge vnto them, that I neuer knewe them. Departe from me, ye workers of iniquitie. 24 Whosoeuer heareth of me these sayinges and doethe the same, I wyll lyken hym vnto a wyse man which buylt hys housse on a rocke 25 and aboundaunce of rayne descended, and the flouddes came, and the windes blew and bet vpon that same housse, and it fell not because it was grounded on the rocke. 26 And whosoeuer heareth of me these sayinges and doeth them not, shalbe lykened vnto a folyshe man whyche buylt hys housse vpon the sande 27 and abundance of rayne descended, and the floudes came, and the wyndes blewe and bet vpon that housse, and it fell, and great was the fall of it. 28 And it came to passe, that when Iesus had ended these saynges, the people were astonyed at his doctrine. 29 For he taught them as one hauing power, and not as the Scribes.

Matthew 15:1-39

1 Then came to Iesus Scribes and Phariseis from Hierusalem, sayinge: 2 why do thy disciples transgresse the tradicions of the elders? for thei washe not their handes when they eate bread. 3 He aunswered sayd vnto them: why do ye also transgresse the commaundement of God thorow your tradicions? 4 For God commaunded saying: honoure thy father and mother, and he that curseth father or mother shall suffre death. 5 But ye saye, euery man shal say to hys father or mother: that which thou desirest of me to helpe the with: is geuen to God, 6 and so shall he not honour hys father or mother. And thus haue ye made, that the commaundement of God is without effecte, thorow your tradicions. 7 Hypocrites, well prophecied of you Esaias sayinge: 8 Thys people draweth nye vnto me with their mouthes, & honoureth me with their lippes, howe be it their hertes are farre from me: 9 but in vayne they worshippe me teaching doctrines, which are nothyng but mens preceptes. 10 And he called the people vnto hym, & sayd to them, heare and vnderstande. 11 That whych goeth into the mouth, defileth not the man: but that whych commeth out of the mouthe, defileth the man. 12 Then came hys disciples, and sayde vnto hym: Perceyuest thou not, how that the Phariseis are offended in hearing thys saying? 13 He aunswered and sayd: al plantes whiche my heauenly father hath not planted, shalbe plucked vp by the rootes. 14 Let them alone, thei be the blynde leaders of the blynd. If the blynd leede the blynde, both shall fall into the dytche. 15 Then aunswered Peter and sayd to hym: declare vnto vs thys parable. 16 Then sayde Iesus are ye yet without vnderstandyng? 17 Perceyue ye not that whatsoeuer goeth in at the mouth, descendeth doune into the bealy, and is cast out into the draught? 18 But those thynges, whiche procede out of the mouthe, come from the hert and they defyle the man. 19 For out of the hert come euil thoughtes, murther, breakyng of wedlocke, whoredom, thefte, false, witnes bearing, blasphemye. 20 These are the thynges which defyle a man. But to eate wt vnwashen handes, defileth not a man. 21 And Iesus went thence, and departed into the costes of Tyre and Sidon 22 And beholde a woman whych was a Cananite came out of the same costes, and cryed vnto hym sayinge: haue mercy on me Lord the sonne of Dauid, my doughter is piteously vexed with a deuel. 23 And he gaue her neuer a woorde to aunswer. Then came to hym hys disciples, & besoughte hym saying: sende her away, for she foloweth vs criyng. 24 He aunswered, and saide: I am not sent, but vnto the lost shepe of the house of Israel. 25 Then she came and worshipped him saiyng master helpe me. 26 He aunswered & sayde: It is not good, to take thy chyldrens bread, & to cast it to dogges. 27 She aunswered & said: truth Lord, neuerthelesse the whelpes eate of the crommes, whiche fall from their masters table. 28 Then Iesus aunswered and sayd vnto her: O woman, great is thy fayth, be it to the euen as thou desirest. And her doughter was made whole, euen at that same houre. 29 Then Iesus went awaye from thence, and came vnto the sea of Galile, and went vp into a mountaine, and sate doune there. 30 And much people came vnto him, hauynge with them, halt, blynd, domme, maymed, and other many: and cast them doune at Iesus fete. And he healed them, 31 in so muche that the people wondred to se the domme speake, the maymed whole, the halt to go, and the blynde to se, And they glorified the God of Israel. 32 Then Iesus called hys disciples to hym & sayd I haue compassion on the people, because they haue continued with me now .iij. dayes & haue nought to eate, and I wil not let them departe fasting, lest they perish in the waie. 33 And his disciples sayd vnto hym, whence shoulde we get so muche breadde in the wildernes, as should suffice so great a multitude? 34 And Iesus sayde vnto them: How many loues haue ye? And they sayde: seuen, and a fewe litle fishes. 35 And he commaunded the people to sit doune on the grounde: 36 and toke the seuen loues and the fishes, and gaue thankes, and brake them and gaue to hys disciples, & the disciples gaue them to the people. 37 And they dyd all eate and were suffised. And they toke vp of the broken meate that was lefte .vij. baskettes full. 38 And yet thei that eate were .iiij.M. men, beside women and chyldren. 39 And he sent away the people & toke ship & came into the parties of Magdala.

John 4:23-24

23 But the houre cometh and nowe is, when the true worshyppers shal worshyp the father in spyrite and in trueth. For verelye suche the father requireth to worshyp him. 24 God is a spyryte, and they that worshyp hym, must worshyp hym in spiryte and trueth.

Romans 14:16

16 Cause not youre treasure to be euyll spoken of.

1 Timothy 2:1-15

1 I exhorte therfore, that aboue al thynges, prayers, supplicacyons intercessyons, and geuynge of thankes be had for all men: 2 for kynges, and for all that are in authorytye, that we maye lyue a quyete and a peasable lyfe, in all godlynes and honestye. 3 For that is good and accepted in the syghte of God oure sauyoure, 4 whiche wyll haue all men saued, and to come vnto the knoweledge of the trueth. 5 For there is one God, and one Meadiatoure betwene God and man, which is the man Christ Iesus 6 which gaue hym self a raunsome for al men, that it shoulde be testifyed at hys tyme, 7 where vnto I am ordeyned a preacher and an Apostle: I tell the trueth in Christe and lye not, beynge the teacher of the gentyles in fayth and verytye. 8 I wyll therfore that the men praye euerye where lyfting vp pure handes wythout wrath or doubtyng. 9 Lykewyse also the women that they araye them selues in comlye apparell wyth shamefastnes and discrete behauyoure not wyth broyded heare other golde, or pearles, or costlye araye: 10 but wyth suche as becommeth women that professe the worshyppyng of God thorowe good workes. 11 Let the woman learne in silence with all subieccyon. 12 I suffer not a woman to teache, neyther to haue authoritie ouer a man: but for to be in silence. 13 For Adam was fyrste formed, and then Eue. 14 Also Adam was not deceyued, but the woman was deceyued, and was in a transgressyon. 15 Notwythstandyng thorow bearyng of chyldren they shalbe saued, so they continue in faythe, loue & holynes with discrecion.

Proverbs 1:1-33

1 The Prouerbes of Salomon the sonne of Dauid king of Israell: 2 too lerne wisdome instruccion, vnderstanding prudence, 3 righteousnesse, iudgement & equite. 4 That the very babes might haue wit, and that yongmen might haue knowlege & vnderstanding. 5 By hearing, the wyse man shall come by more wysedome: & by experience 6 he shalbe more apte to vnderstande a parable, & the interpretacion therof, the wordes of the wise, & the darke speaches of the same. 7 The feare of the Lord is the begynnynge of wysdome. But fooles despise wysdome & destruccion. 8 My sonne, heare thy fathers doctryne, & forsake not the lawe of thy mother: 9 for that shall bryng grace vnto thy head, & shall be a cheyne about thy necke. 10 My sonne, consent not vnto sinners, 11 if they entise the, & say: come with vs, let vs leye wayte for bloud, and lurke preuely for the innocent without a cause: 12 let vs swalow them vp like the hel, let vs deuour them quicke & whole, as those that go doune into the pyt. 13 So shal we finde al maner of costely riches, & fil our houses wt spoiles. 14 Cast in thy lot among vs, we shall haue all one purse. 15 My sonne, walke not thou with them, refrayn thy fote from their ways. 16 For their fete runne to euel, & are hasty to shed bloud. 17 But in vayn is the net laied forth before the byrdes eyes. 18 Yea, they themselfes laye wayte one for anothers bloud, & one of them wolde sley another. 19 These are the ways of all suche as be couetous, that one wolde rauish anothers life. 20 Wisdome crieth without, & putteth forth her voyce in the stretes. 21 She calleth before the congregacion in the open gates, & sheweth her wordes thorow the citie, saying: 22 O ye chyldren, how longe will ye loue chyldyshnesse? how long wil the, scorners delite in scorning & the vnwise be enemies vnto knowlege? 23 O turne you vnto my correccion: lo. I wil expres my mynde vnto you, & make you vnderstande my wordes. 24 Seing then that I haue called & ye refused it: I haue stretched out my hand, & no man regarded it, 25 but all my counsayls haue ye despysed, & set my corrections at naught. 26 Therfore shall I also laugh in your destruccion, & mocke you, when the thyng that ye feare cometh vpon you: 27 euen when the thing that ye be afrayed of, falleth in sodenly lyke a storme, & your miseri like a tempest: yea, when trouble & heuinesse commeth vpon you. 28 Then shal they call vpon me, but I will not heare: they shal seke me early, but thei shal not find me: 29 And that because thei hated knowlege, & receyued not the feare of the Lord, 30 but abhorred my counsail, & despised my correction. 31 Therfore shal they eate the frutes of their owne way, & be filled with their oune counsayls: 32 for the turning away of the vnwyse shal sley them, & the prosperitie of foles shalbe their owne destruccion. 33 But who so harkeneth vnto me shal dwel safely, and haue ynough without any feare of euell.
