33 Be not deceiued: malicious speakinges corrupte good maners.
1 Bvt the serpent was sutyller than al the beastes of the felde, whych the Lord God had made: & sayd vnto the woman: yea hath God sayd in dede, ye shall not eate of al maner trees in the garden? 2 And the woman sayd vnto the serpent, of the frute of the trees in the garden we may eate, 3 but of the frute of the tree that is in the myddes of the garden (sayd God) se that ye eate not, & se that ye touch it not, lest ye dye. 4 Then sayd the serpent vnto the woman: tush ye shal not dye: 5 but god doth know that when so euer ye should eate of it, your eyes should be opened, & ye should be as god, & know both good & euel. 6 And the woman saw that it was a good tree to eate of, and lusty vnto the eies, & a pleasant tree forto geue vnderstandynge. And toke of the frute of it & ate, & gaue vnto her husband also wt her, & he ate. 7 And the eyes of bothe them were opened, that they vnderstode howe that they were naked. Than they sowed figge leues together and made them apurns. 8 And they herd the voyce of the Lord God as he walked in the garden in the coole of the daye. And Adam hyd hym self and his wyfe also from the face of the Lorde God, among the trees of the garden. 9 And the Lorde God called Adam, and sayd vnto hym: where art thou? 10 And he answered: Thy voyce I heard in the garden, but I was afrayed, because I was naked, and therfore hyd my selfe. 11 And he sayde: Who tolde the that thou wast naked? hast thou eaten of the tree, of whyche I bade the that thou shuldest not eate? 12 And Adam answered: The woman whych thou gauest to bere me company she toke me of the tree, and I ate. 13 And the Lorde God sayd vnto the woman: Wherfore dydest thou so? And the woman answered: The serpent deceyued me and I ate. 14 And the Lord God sayd vnto the serpent: because thou haste so done moste curssed be thou of all catell and of al beastes of the felde: vpon thy beely shalt thou go: and erth shalt thou eate all dayes of thy lyfe. 15 Moreouer, I wyll put hatred betwene the & the woman, & betwene thy seed and her seed. And that seed shall tread the on thy heed, and thou shalt treade it on the hele. 16 And vnto the woman he said: I wyl suerly encrease thy sorow, and make the oft with chylde, & with payne shalt thou be deliuered: And thy lustes shall pertayne vnto thy husband, and he shal rule the. 17 And vnto Adam he sayd: For as moch as thou hast obeyed the voyce of thy wyfe, and hast eaten of the tree of which I commaunded the, sayinge: Se thou eate not therof: curssed be the erth for thy sake. In sorow shalt thou eate therof all dayes of thy lyfe: 18 And it shall beare thornes & thystels vnto the. And thou shalt eate the herbes of the feld. 19 In the swete of thy face shalt thou eate brede, vntyll thou returne vnto the erth whence thou wast taken: for erth thou art, & vnto erth shalt thou returne. 20 And Adam called his wyfe Heua, because she was the mother of al that liueth. 21 And the Lord God made Adam & his wyfe garmentes of skynnes, and put them on them. 22 And the Lorde God sayd: Loo, Adam is become as it were one of vs, in knowledge of good and euell. But now lest he strech forth hys hande and take also of the tree of lyfe, & eate & lyue euer. 23 And the Lord God cast hym out of the garden of Eden, to tylle the erth whence he was taken. 24 And he cast Adam out, & sette at the enterynge of the garden Eden, Cherubin with a naked swerde mouynge in and out, to kepe the way to the tree of lyfe.

5 Let the same mynde be in you that was in Christ Iesu: 6 Whiche beinge in the shap of God, and thought it not robbery to be equal wt God. 7 Neuerthelesse he made hym selfe of no reputation, & toke on him the shap of a seruaunt, and became lyke vnto men, 8 and was founde in hys aparell as a man. He humbled hym selfe, and became obediente vnto the death euen the death of the crosse. 9 Wherfore God hath exalted hym, and geuen hym a name aboue al names, 10 that in the name of Iesus should euerye knee bowe, both of thinges in heauen and thinges in earth, and thinges vnder the earth,
2 Beare ye one anothers burthen, and so fulfyl the lawe of christ.
27 But I say vnto you which heare: loue your enemyes. Do good to them which hate you. 28 Blesse them that coursse you. And praye for them which wrongfully trouble you. 29 And vnto hym that smiteth the on the one cheke, offer also the other. And him that taketh awaye thy gonne, forbyd not to take thy cote also. 30 Giue euerye man that axeth of the. And of hym that taketh awaye thy goodes, axe them not again. 31 And as ye woulde that men should do to you: so do ye to them likewyse. 32 Yf ye loue them which loue you, what thanke are ye worthy of? For the verye synners loue their louers. 33 And if ye do for them which do for you, what thanke are ye worthye of? For the verye synners do euen the same. 34 If ye lende to them of whom ye hope to receiue, what thanke shall ye haue: for the very synners lende to synners to receiue much againe. 35 Wherfore, loue ye your enemyes, do good and lende, lokinge for nothynge againe, and your rewarde shall be greate, and ye shalbe the children of the hyest for he is kinde vnto the vnkinde and to the euyll. 36 Be ye therfore mercifull, as your father is mercyfull.

Very gladly therfor wil I reioyce of my weakenes, that the strength of Christe maye dwell in me 10 Therfore haue I delectacyon in infyrmities, in rebukes, in nede, in persecutions, in anguyshe, for Christes sake. For when I am weake, then am I stronge.
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.
