Ephesians 5:1-33

1 Therfor be ye foloweris of God, as moost dereworthe sones; 2 and walke ye in loue, as Crist louyde vs, and yaf hym silf for vs an offryng and a sacrifice to God, in to the odour of swetnesse. 3 And fornycacioun, and al vnclennesse, or aueryce, be not named among you, as it bicometh holi men; 4 ethir filthe, or foli speche, or harlatrye, that perteyneth not to profit, but more doyng of thankyngis. 5 For wite ye this, and vndurstonde, that ech letchour, or vnclene man, or coueytouse, that serueth to mawmetis, hath not eritage in the kingdom of Crist and of God. 6 No man disseyue you bi veyn wordis; for whi for these thingis the wraththe of God cam on the sones of vnbileue. 7 Therfor nyle ye be maad parteneris of hem. 8 For ye weren sum tyme derknessis, but now `ye ben liyt in the Lord. Walke ye as the sones of liyt. 9 For the fruyt of liyt is in al goodnesse, and riytwisnesse, and treuthe. 10 And preue ye what `thing is wel plesynge to God. 11 And nyle ye comyne to vnfruytouse werkis of derknessis; but more repreue ye. 12 For what thingis ben don of hem in priuy, it is foule, yhe, to speke. 13 And alle thingis that ben repreuyd of the liyt, ben opynli schewid; for al thing that is schewid, is liyt. 14 For which thing he seith, Rise thou that slepist, and rise vp fro deth, and Crist schal liytne thee. 15 Therfor, britheren, se ye, hou warli ye schulen go; 16 not as vnwise men, but as wise men, ayenbiynge tyme, for the daies ben yuele. 17 Therfor nyle ye be maad vnwise, but vndurstondynge which is the wille of God. 18 And nyle ye be drunkun of wyn, in which is letcherie, but be ye fillid with the Hooli Goost; and speke ye to you silf in salmes, 19 and ymnes, and spiritual songis, syngynge and seiynge salm in youre hertis to the Lord; 20 euermore doynge thankingis for alle thingis in the name of oure Lord Jhesu Crist to God and to the fadir. 21 Be ye suget togidere in the drede of Crist. 22 Wymmen, be thei suget to her hosebondis, 23 as to the Lord, for the man is heed of the wymman, as Crist is heed of the chirche; he is sauyour of his bodi. 24 But as the chirche is suget to Crist, so wymmen to her hosebondis in alle thingis. 25 Men, loue ye youre wyues, as Crist louyde the chirche, and yaf hym silf for it, to make it holi; 26 and clenside it with the waisching of watir, in the word of lijf, 27 to yyue the chirche gloriouse to hym silf, that it hadde no wem, ne ryueling, or ony siche thing, but that it be hooli and vndefoulid. 28 So and men `schulen loue her wyues, as her owne bodies. He that loueth his wijf, loueth hym silf; 29 for no man hatide euere his owne fleisch, but nurischith and fostrith it, as Crist doith the chirche. 30 And we ben membris of his bodi, of his fleisch, and of his boonys. 31 For this thing a man schal forsake his fadir and modir, and he schal drawe to his wijf; and thei schulen be tweyne in o fleisch. 32 This sacrament is greet; yhe, Y seie in Crist, and in the chirche. 33 Netheles ye alle, ech man loue his wijf as hym silf; and the wijf drede hir hosebonde.

1 Corinthians 13:1-13

1 If Y speke with tungis of men and of aungels, and Y haue not charite, Y am maad as bras sownynge, or a cymbal tynkynge. 2 And if Y haue prophecie, and knowe alle mysteries, and al kunnynge, and if Y haue al feith, so that Y meue hillis fro her place, and Y haue not charite, Y am nouyt. 3 And if Y departe alle my goodis in to the metis of pore men, and yf Y bitake my bodi, so that Y brenne, and if Y haue not charite, it profitith to me no thing. 4 Charite is pacient, it is benygne; charite enuyeth not, it doith not wickidli, it is not blowun, 5 it is not coueytouse, it sekith not tho thingis that ben hise owne, it is not stirid to wraththe, it thenkith not yuel, 6 it ioyeth not on wickidnesse, but it ioieth togidere to treuthe; 7 it suffrith alle thingis, it bileueth alle thingis, it hopith alle thingis, it susteyneth alle thingis. 8 Charite fallith neuere doun, whether prophecies schulen be voidid, ethir langagis schulen ceesse, ethir science schal be distried. 9 For a parti we knowun, and a parti we prophecien; 10 but whanne that schal come that is parfit, that thing that is of parti schal be auoidid. 11 Whanne Y was a litil child, Y spak as a litil child, Y vndurstood as a litil child, Y thouyte as a litil child; but whanne Y was maad a man, Y auoidide tho thingis that weren of a litil child. 12 And we seen now bi a myrour in derknesse, but thanne face to face; now Y knowe of parti, but thanne Y schal knowe, as Y am knowun. 13 And now dwellen feith, hope, and charite, these thre; but the most of these is charite.

James 3:16

16 For where is enuye and strijf, there is vnstidfastnesse and al schrewid werk.

Matthew 18:15-17

15 But if thi brother synneth ayens thee, go thou, and repreue hym, bitwixe thee and hym aloone; if he herith thee, thou hast wonnun thi brother. 16 And if he herith thee not, take with thee oon or tweyne, that euery word stonde in the mouth of tweyne or thre witnessis. 17 And if he herith not hem, seie thou to the chirche.
