Psalms 118:13

13 They thrust at me, that I myght fall, but the lorde was my helpe.

Jeremiah 20:14-18

14 Cursed be the daye, wher in I was borne: vnhappye be the daye, wherin my mother brought me forth. 15 Cursed be the man, that brought my father the tydinges, to make hym glad, saying: thou hast gotten a sonne. 16 Lett it happen vnto that man, as to the cyties whiche the Lorde turned vp syde downe (when he had hearde longe the wicked rumoure of them) 17 because he slewe me not, as sone as I came out of my mothers wombe, & because my mother was not my graue her selfe, that the byrth mighte not haue come out, but remayned styl in her. 18 Wherfore came I forth of my mother wombe? To haue experience of all laboure & sorow? & to leade my lyfe wyth shame?

Matthew 5:3

3 blessed are the pore in sprete: for theirs is the kingdom of heauen.

James 1:1-27

1 Iames the seruaunte of God and of the Lorde Iesus Christ sendeth gretyng to the twelue trybes whiche are scattered here and there. 2 My brethren, count it excedyng ioye when ye fal into dyuers temptacyons, 3 for as muche as ye knowe howe that the triynge of youre fayth bryngeth pacience: 4 and let pacyence haue her perfect worke, that ye maye be perfecte and sounde, lackynge nothynge. 5 Yf anye of you lacke wysedome, let hym axe of God whiche geueth to all men indyfferentlye, and casteth no man in the teath: and it shal be geuen hym. 6 But let hym axe it in faith and wauer not. For he that doubteth is lyke the waues of the sea, toste of the wyndes & caried wyth vyolence. 7 Neyther let that man thynke that he shal receyue any thynge of the Lorde. 8 A waueryng mynded man is vnstable in all hys wayes. 9 Let the brother of low degre reioyce in that he is exalted, 10 and the ryche in that he is made lowe. For euen as the flower of the grasse, shal he vanysh away. 11 The sonne riseth with heat, and the grasse widereth, and hys flower falleth awaye, & the beautye of the fashyon of it perysheth: euen so shal the ryche man peryshe wyth hys aboundaunce. 12 Happy is the man that endureth in temptacyon, for when he is tryed, he shal receyue the croune of lyfe, which the Lorde hath promised to them that loue hym. 13 Let no man saye when he is tempted, that he is tempted of God. For god tempteth not vnto euyl, neyther tempteth he any man: 14 But euerye man is tempted, drawne awaye, & entysed of hys owne concupiscence. 15 Then when luste hath conceyued, she bringeth forth sinne, & sinne when it is fynyshed bryngeth forthe death. 16 Erre not my deare brethren. 17 Euery good gyfte, and euerye perfecte gyfte, is from aboue and commeth doune from the father of lyght wyth whome is no varyablenes, neyther is he chaunged vnto darkenes. 18 Of hys owne wyll begat he vs wyth the worde of lyfe, that we shoulde be the fyrste frutes of hys creatures. 19 Wherfore deare brethren, let euerye man be swyfte to heare, slowe to speake, and slow to wrath. 20 For the wrath of man worketh not that whiche is ryghtuous before God. 21 Wherfore laye a parte all fylthynes, all superfluytye of malycyousnes, and receyue wyth mekenes the worde that is grafted in you, whiche is able to saue your soules. 22 And se that ye be doars of the worde & not hearers onely, deceyuyng your owne selues wyth sophystrye. 23 For yf any heare the word, and do it not, he is lyke vnto a man that beholdeth his bodly face in a glasse. 24 For assone as he hath loked on hym selfe, he goeth hys waye, and forgetteth immediatly what hys fashyon was. 25 But who so loketh in the perfecte lawe of lybertye, and contynueth therin (yf he be not a forgetfull hearer, but a doar of the worke) the same shall be happye in hys dede. 26 Yf anye man amonge you seme deuoute, & refrayne not his tonge, but deceyue his owne hert: thys mannes deuocyon is in vayne. 27 Pure deuocyon and vndefyled before God the father is thys: to visite the fatherlesse and wyddowes in theyr aduersitye, and to kepe hym selfe vnspotted of the worlde.

1 Corinthians 6:19

19 Either knowe ye not howe that youre bodies are the temple of the holye ghoste, whyche is in you, whome ye haue of God, and how that ye are not your owne?

James 4:7

7 Submytte your selues to God, and resiste the deuyl, and he wyll flye from you.

Psalms 13:1-6

1 To the chaunter, a Psalme of Dauid. How longe wilt thou forget me O Lorde? for euer? howe longe wilt thou hyde thy face fro me? 2 Oh how long shal I seke counsayl in my soule? how longe shall I be so vexed in myne hert? howe longe shall myne enemye triumphe ouer me? 3 Considre, & heare me, O Lorde my God: lighten myne eyes, that I sleape not in death. 4 Lest myne enemye saye: I haue preuayled agaynst hym: for if I be cast doune, they that troble me will reioyse at it. 5 But my trust is in thy mercy, & my herte is ioyfull in thy sauynge health. 6 I will singe of the Lorde, that dealeth so louingly with me. (Yea, I wil prayse the name of the Lorde the moost hyest.)

Romans 12:2

2 And fashyon not youre selues lyke vnto thys worlde. But be ye chaunged in youre shape, by the renuynge of youre wyttes, that ye may fele what thynge that good, that acceptable, and perfect wyll of God is.

Galatians 2:20

20 I am crucyfyed with Christ. I lyue verelye: yet now not I, but Christe lyueth in me. For the lyfe which I now lyue in the, flesh I lyue by the faythe of the sonne of God whiche loued me, and gaue hym selfe for me.

1 Peter 5:7

7 Caste all your care to him: for he careth for you.

Matthew 11:28-30

28 Come vnto me all ye that labour and are laden and I wyll ease you. 29 Take my yocke on you and learne of me, for I am meke and lowly in herte: and ye shall fynde reste vnto your soules. 30 For my yocke is easy: and my burden is lyght.

1 Corinthians 10:13

13 There hath none other temptacion taken you, but suche as foloweth the nature of man. But God is faythful whiche shall not suffre you to be tempted aboue your strength: but shall in the middest of the temptacion make a waye to escape out.

James 1:2-12

2 My brethren, count it excedyng ioye when ye fal into dyuers temptacyons, 3 for as muche as ye knowe howe that the triynge of youre fayth bryngeth pacience: 4 and let pacyence haue her perfect worke, that ye maye be perfecte and sounde, lackynge nothynge. 5 Yf anye of you lacke wysedome, let hym axe of God whiche geueth to all men indyfferentlye, and casteth no man in the teath: and it shal be geuen hym. 6 But let hym axe it in faith and wauer not. For he that doubteth is lyke the waues of the sea, toste of the wyndes & caried wyth vyolence. 7 Neyther let that man thynke that he shal receyue any thynge of the Lorde. 8 A waueryng mynded man is vnstable in all hys wayes. 9 Let the brother of low degre reioyce in that he is exalted, 10 and the ryche in that he is made lowe. For euen as the flower of the grasse, shal he vanysh away. 11 The sonne riseth with heat, and the grasse widereth, and hys flower falleth awaye, & the beautye of the fashyon of it perysheth: euen so shal the ryche man peryshe wyth hys aboundaunce. 12 Happy is the man that endureth in temptacyon, for when he is tryed, he shal receyue the croune of lyfe, which the Lorde hath promised to them that loue hym.
