Romans 12:1-21

1 I beseche you therfore brethren, by the mercyfulnes of God, that ye make your bodyes a quicke sacrifyce holye and acceptable vnto God, which is youre reasonable seruynge of God: 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. 3 For I say (thorowe the grace that vnto me geuen is) to euery man among you, that no man esteme of hym selfe more then it becommeth hym to esteme: but that he discretelye iudge of hym selfe, accordynge as GOD hath dealt to euery man the measure of fayth. 4 As we haue many members in one bodye, & all members haue not one offyce: 5 so we beyng many, are one body in Christ & euery man (amonge our selues) one anothers members. 6 Seynge that we haue dyuers gyftes, accordynge to the grace that is geuen vnto vs: yf any man haue the gyft of prophesy, let him haue it that it be agreyng vnto the fayth. 7 Let hym that hath an offyce, wayte on hys office. Let hym that teacheth, take hede to hys doctryne. 8 Let hym that exhorteth, geue attendaunce to hys exhortacyon. Yf any man geue, let hym do it with singlenes. Let him that ruleth do it with diligence. Yf anye man shew mercy let hym do it with cherfulnes. 9 Let loue be without dissimulacyon. Hate that whiche is euyll, and cleaue vnto that which is good. 10 Be kynde one to another with brotherlye loue. In geuynge honoure, go one before another. 11 Let not the busynes whiche ye haue in hande, be tedyous to you. Be feruente in the spirite. Applye youre selues to the time. 12 Reioyce in hope. Be pacyent in trybulacyon. Contynue in prayer. 13 Distribute vnto the necessitie of the Saynctes, and be diligente to harboure. 14 Blesse them whiche persecute you: blesse, but cursse not. 15 Be merye with them that are merye. Wepe with them that wepe. 16 Be of lyke affeccyon one towardes an other. Be not hyghe mynded, but make youre selues equall to them of the lower sorte. Be not wyse in youre owne opinions. 17 Recompence to no man euyll for euyll. Prouyde afore hande thynges honest in the syght of all men. 18 If it be possyble, how be it of your part, haue peace with all men. 19 Derely beloued auenge not youre selues, but geue roume vnto the wrathe of God. For it is wrytten: vengeaunce is myne, and I wyll rewarde sayeth the Lorde. 20 Therfore yf thyne enemye hunger, feede hym: yf he thurste, geue hym drinke, for in so doyng thou shalt heape coles of fyre on hys head. 21 Be not ouercome of euyl: But ouercome euil with goodnesse.

And the gates of hell shall not preuayle against it. 19 And I wil geue vnto the, the keyes of the kyngdome of heauen, and whatsoeuer thou bindest vpon earth shalbe bounde in heauen, and whatsoeuer thon lowsest on earth shalbe lowsed in heauen.
