THE REVELATION OF ST JOHN Chpt 16
And the seventh Angel poured out his vial into the air. And there came a voice out of heaven from the seat, saying: it is done. And there followed voices thunderings, and lightnings, and there was a great earthquake, such as was not since men were upon the earth, so mighty an earthquake and so great. And the great city was divided into three parts, And the cities of nations fell. And great Babylon came in remembrance before God, to give unto her the cup of wine of the fierceness of his wrath. Every isle fled away, and the mountains were not found. And there fell a great hail, as it had been talents, out of heaven upon the men, and the men blasphemed God: because of the plague of the hail, for it was great and the plague of it sore.
and the WAY off and A WAY from the high place and places was blocked ...
and coldness and heaviness of the ice cover the place ...

Yet a man appeared ...

THE EPISTLE OF ST. JAMES Chpt 4
From whence cometh war and fighting among you: come they not here hence? even of your voluptuousness, that reign in your members. Ye lust, and have not. Ye envy and have indignation, and cannot obtain. Ye fight and war and have not, because ye ask not. Ye ask and receive not, because ye ask amiss: even to consume it upon your voluptuousness. Ye *advouterers, and women that break matrimony: know ye not how that the friendship of the world is enmity to God ward? Whosoever will be friend of the world, is made the enemy of God. Either do ye think that the scripture saith in vain: The spirit that dwelleth in you, lusteth even contrary to envy: but giveth more grace.
Submit your selves to God, and resist the devil, and he will fly from you. Draw nigh to God and he will draw nigh to you. Cleanse your hands ye sinners, and purge your hearts ye wavering minded. Suffer afflictions: sorrow ye and weep. Let your laughter be turned to mourning, and your joy to heaviness. Cast down yourselves before the Lord, and he shall lift you up. Backbite not one another, brethren. He that backbiteth his brother, and he that judgeth his brother, backbiteth the law, and judgeth the law. But and if thou judge the law, thou art not an observer of the law: but a judge. There is one law giver, which is able to save and to destroy. What art thou that judgest another man?
Go to now ye that say: today and tomorrow let us go into such a city and continue there a year and buy and sell, and win: and yet cannot tell what shall happen tomorrow. For what thing is your life? It is even a vapor that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away: For that ye ought to say: if the Lord will and if we live, let us do this or that. But now ye rejoice in your boastings. All such rejoicing is evil. Therefore to him that knoweth how to do good, and doth it not, to him it is sin
*advouterers: a-devouter; the prefix a meaning not or without; a (not) devotion, here to husband, elsewhere to the truth, Christ , God our father. This is not adultery as found in most other "bibles". The proof is that the word "adultery" is found plainly in chapter 2 PP 3 above and Yet here is advouterers, same writer, same book
THE GOSPELL OF ST. MATTHEW Chpt 16
Jesus then said to his disciples. If any man will follow me let him forsake himself and take up his cross and follow me. For whosoever will save his life, shall *loose it. And whosoever shall *loose his life for my sake, shall find it. What shall it profit a man, though he should win all the whole world if he *loose his own soul? Or else what shall a man give to redeem his soul again with all? For the son of man shall come in the glory of his father, with his angels: and then shall he reward every man according to his deeds. Verily I say unto you, some there be among them that here stand, which shall not taste of death, till they shall have seen the son of man come in his kingdom.*loosest: open

*loose: exactly as it appears: loose from the Hebrew is to "open".
THE BOOK OF WISDOM Chpt 1
O' set your affection upon wisdom, ye that be judges of the earth. Have a good opinion of the Lord, and seek him in the singleness of heart. For he will be found of them that tempt him not, and appeareth unto such as put their trust in him. As for *froward thoughts, they separate from God, but virtue ( if it be allowed ) reformeth the unwise. And why? Wisdom shall not enter in a froward soul, nor dwell in the body that is subdued unto sin. For the holy spirit abhoreth fained nurture, and with draweth himself from the thoughts that are without understanding: and where wickedness hath the upper hand, he flyeth from thence. For the spirit of wisdom is loving, gentle and gracious, and will have no pleasure in him that speaketh evil with his lips. For God is witness of his reins, and a true searcher out of his heart, and a hearer of his tongue. For the spirit of the Lord filleth the round compass of the world, and the same that upholdeth all things, hath knowledge also of the voice.
Therefore he that speaketh unrighteous things, cannot be hid, neither may he escape the judgement of reproof. And why? Inquisition shall be made for the thoughts of the ungodly, and the report of his words shall come unto God, so that his wickedness shall be punished. For the ear of jealousy heareth all things, and the noise of grudgings, shall not be hid. Therefore beware of murmurings which is nothing worth, and refrain your tongue from *sclander. For there is no word so secret, that it shall go for nought: and the mouth that speaketh lies, slayeth the soul.
O' seek not your own death in the error of your life, destroy not yourselves through the works of your own hands. For God hath not made death, neither hath he pleasure in the destruction of the living. For he created all things, that they might have their being: yee all the people of the earth hath he made that they should have health, that there is no destruction in them, and that the kingdom of hell should not be upon the earth ( for righteousness is everlasting and immortal, but unrighteousness bringeth death ) Nevertheless, the ungodly call her unto them both with words and works, and while they think to have a friend of her, they come to naught: for the ungodly that are confederate with her and take her part, are worthy of death
*froward (proud, haughty, stubborn, contrary, obstinate, disobedient)
*sclander (scandal and slander)

And the fourth came, and *overwane, subdue all the beasts that were past, and had power over the world with great fearfulness, and over the whole compass of the earth with the most wicked labor, and so long time dwelt he upon the earth with deceit, and the earth thou hast not judged the truth. For thou hast troubled the meek, thou hast hurt the peaceable and quiet, thou hast loved lies, and destroyed the dwellings of them that brought forth fruit, and hast cast down the walls of such as did thee no harm. Therefore is thy wrongeous dealing and blasphemy come up unto the Highest, and thy pride unto the Mighty. The Highest also hath looked upon the proud times, and behold, they are ended, and their abominations are fulfilled
THE FOURTH BOOK OF ESDRAS Chpt 12
And where as thou sawest two underwings upon the head that is on the right side, it signifieth that it is they, whom the Highest hath kept unto their end: this is a small kingdom, full of trouble. The Lion whom thou sawest rising up out of the wood, and roaring, and speaking unto the Eagle, and rebuking him for his unrighteousness, is the wind, which the Highest hath kept for them and for their wickedness unto the end: he shall reprove them, and rent them asunder before them. For he shall set them living before the judgement, and shall rebuke them: for the residue of my people shall he deliver with trouble, those that be preserved over mine ends: and he shall make them joyful until the coming day of Judgement, where of I have spoken unto thee from the beginning. This is the dream that thou sawest, and this is the interpretation. Thou only hast been meat to know the secret of the Highest.
THE REVELATION OF ST JOHN Chpt 20
And when the thousand years are expired, Satan shall be loosed out of his prison, and shall go out to deceive the people which are in the four quarters of the earth Gog and Magog, to gather them together to battle, whose number is as the sand of the sea: and they went up on the plain of the earth, and compassed the tents of the saints about, and the beloved city. And fire came down from God, out of heaven, and devoured them: and the devil that deceived them, was cast into a lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet were and shall be tormented day and night for ever more.
THE FIRST EPISTLE OF ST. JOHN Chpt 2
See that ye love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the father is not in him. For all that is in the world (as the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of goods) is not of the father, but of the world. And the world vanisheth away and the lust there of: but he that fulfilleth the will of God, abideth ever.
ESAI or ISAIAH Chpt 59
Behold, the Lords hand is not so shortened that it cannot help, neither is his ear so stopped that it may not hear. But your misdeeds have separated you from your God, and your sins hide his face from you, that he heareth you not. For your hands are defiled with blood, and your fingers with unrighteousness: Your lips speak leasings, and your tongue setteth out wickedness. No man regardeth righteousness, and no man judgeth truly. Every man hopeth in vain things, and imagineth deceit, conceiveth weariness, and bringeth forth evil. *They breed cockatrice eggs, and weave the spiders web.
*Whoso eateth of their eggs dieth.
*But if one treadeth upon them. there cometh up a serpent.
*Their web maketh no cloth and they may not cover themselves with their labors.
*Their deeds are the deeds of wickedness, and the work of robbery is in their hands. Their feet run to evil, and they make hast to shed innocent blood. Their counsels are wicked counsels, harm and destruction are in their ways. But the way of peace they know not. In their goings is there no equity, their ways are so *crocked that whosoever goeth therin, knoweth nothing of peace.
And this is the cause that equity is so far from us, and the righteousness cometh not nye us. We look for light, lo, it is darkness: for the morning shine, see, we walk in the dark. We grope like the blind upon the wall, we grope even as one that hath none eyes. We stumble at the noon day, as though it were toward night: in the falling places, like men that are half dead. We roar all like Bears, and mourn still like doves. We look for equity, but there is none: for health, but it is far from us. For our offenses are many before thee, and our sins testify against us. Yee we must confess that we offend, and knowledge that we do amiss: Namely transgress and disassemble against the Lord, and fall away from our God: using presumptuous and traitorous imaginations, and casting false matters in our hearts. And therefore is equity gone aside, and righteousness standeth far off: truth is fallen down in the street, and the thing that is plain and open, may not be showed. Yee the truth is laid in prison, and he that refraineth him self from evil, must be spoiled.
When the Lord saw this, it displeased him sore, that there was no where any equity. He saw also, that there was no man, which had pity thereof, or was grieved at it. And he held him by his own power, and cleaved to his own righteousness. He put righteousness upon him for a breast plate, and a fiery helmet of health upon his head. He put on wrath in stead of clothing, and took jealousy about him for a cloak: ( like as when a man goeth forth wrothfully to recompense his enemies, and to be avenged of his adversaries. ) Namely, that he might recompense and reward the Islands where through the name of the Lord might be feared, from the rising Sun: and his majesty, unto the going down of the same.
For he shall come as a violent water stream, which the wind of the Lord hath moved. But unto Sion there shall come a redeemer, and unto them in Jacob that turn from wickedness, sayeth the Lord. I will make this covenant with them, ( saith the Lord): My spirit that is come upon thee, and the words which I have put in thy mouth, shall never go out of thy mouth, nor out the mouth of thy childrens children, from this time forth for evermore
from the marginal notes...(MN) or martyrs notes
*1 To breed cockatrice eggs, is, to go about that which is inischeous (unsatiating) and wicked: A to weave that spiders web, web, is to about vain and trifling things, which are of no value: although they seem ever so excellent unto the doers.
*2 As to ye that eateth of a cockatrice egg dieth, So they that delight in cruel works, or that consent unto them, shall perish.
*3 And if a man unawares, tread on their eggs : and so press out the cockatrice and be touched, he shall be killed of her: evenso shall the thoughts of that evil bring them to death.
*4 As no man maketh clothes of the spiders web, so shall the wicked works enrich no man nor profit him on the day of judgement, when we must go unto that rest in that wedding garment.
*5 By the deeds of wickedness understand guileful and crafty deeds of robbery, violent and tyrannous deeds. The text sayeth that their deeds are the deeds of robbery because they help no man with their hands. But rather rob and beguile the poor: so are they without charity, so feel they not what charity requireth of them.

THE SECOND TO THE THESSALONIANS Chpt 2
We beseech you brethren by the coming of our Lord *Jesu Christ, and in that we shall assemble unto him, that ye be not suddenly moved from your mind and be not troubled neither by spirit, neither by words, nor yet by letter which should seem to come from us, as though the day of Christ were at hand. Let no man deceive you by any means, for the Lord cometh not, except there come a departing first, and that, that sinful man be opened, the son of *perdition which is an adversary, and is exalted above all that is called God, or that is worshipped: so that he shall sit as God in that temple of God, and show himself as God.
Remember ye not, that when I was yet with you, I told you these things? And now ye know what withholdeth: even that he might be uttered at his time. For the mystery of that iniquity doth he already work: till he which now only letteth, be taken out of the way. And then shall that wicked be uttered, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the appearance of his coming even him whose coming is by the working of Satan, with all lying power, signs and wonders: and in all deceivableness of unrighteousness, among them that perish: because they received not the love of the truth, that they might have been saved. And therefore God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe lies: that all they might be damned which believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.
But we are bound to give thanks always to God for you brethren beloved of the Lord, for because that God hath from the beginning chosen you to salvation, through sanctifying of the spirit, and through believing the truth, whereunto he called you by our Gospell, to obtain the glory that cometh of our Lord *Jesu Christ.
Therefore brethren stand fast, and keep the ordinances which ye have learned: whether it were by our preaching, or by epistle. Our Lord Jesu Christ himself, and God our father which hath loved us, and hath given us everlasting consolation and good hope through grace, comfort your hearts, and establish you in all doctrine and good doing
*Jesu; exact spelling : Hebrew for Jesus. *perdition (utter ruin)
THE GOSPELL OF ST. MATTHEW Chpt 19
Then Jesus said unto his disciples: Verily I say unto you: it is hard for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of heaven. And moreover I say unto you: it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, then for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God. When his disciples heard that, they were exceedingly amazed, saying: who then can be saved: Jesus beheld them, and said unto them: with men this is unpossible, but with God all things are possible.
Then answered Peter, and said to him: Behold, we have forsaken all and followed thee, what shall we have? Jesus said unto them: verily I say to you: when the son of man shall sit in the seat of his majesty, ye which follow me in the second generation shall sit also upon twelve seats, and judge the twelve tribes of Israel. And whosoever forsaketh houses, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for my names sake, the same shall receive an hundred fold, and shall inherit everlasting life. Many that are first shall be last, and the last shall be first
THE GOSPELL OF ST. MATTHEW Chpt 27
When the morning was come, all the chief priests and the elders of the people held a counsel against Jesus, to put him to death, and brought him bound and delivered him unto Pontius Pilate the *deputy.
Then when Judas which betrayed him, saw that he was condemned, he repented himself, and brought again the thirty plates of silver to the chief Priests and elders saying: I have sinned betraying the innocent blood. And they said: what is that to us? See thou to that. And he cast down the silver plates in the temple and departed, and went and hung himself.
And the chief priest took the silver plates and said: it is not lawful for to put them in to the treasury, because it is the price of blood. And they took counsel, and bought with them a potters field to bury strangers in. Wherefore that field is called the field of blood, until this day. Then was fulfilled, that which was spoken by Jeremy the Prophet saying: and they took thirty silver plates, the price of him that was valued whom they bought of the children of Israel, and they gave them for the potters field, as the Lord appointed me. Jesus stood before the *deputy: and the deputy asked him saying: art thou the king of the Jews: Jesus said unto him: Thou sayest. And when he was accused of the chief priests and elders, he answered nothing. Then said Pilate unto him: hearest thou not, how many things they lay against thee? And he answered him never a word: in so much that the deputy marvelled greatly.
At that feast, the deputy was wont to deliver unto the people a prisoner, whom they would desire. He had then a notable prisoner called Barabbas. And when they were gathered together, Pilate said unto them: whether will ye that I give loose unto you, Barabbas or Jesus which is called Christ? For he knew well, that for envy they had delivered him.
When he was set down to give judgement his wife sent to him saying: have thou nothing to do with that just man. For I have suffered many things this day in a dream about him. But the chief priests and the elders had persuaded the people, that they should ask Barabbas, and should destroy Jesus. Then the deputy answered and said unto them: whether of the *twain will ye that I let loose unto you? And they said, Barabbas. Pilate said unto them: what shall I do then with Jesus which is called Christ? They all said to him: let him be crucified. Then said the deputy: what evil hath he done? And they cried the more saying: let him be crucified. When Pilate saw that he prevailed nothing but that more business was made, he took water and washed his hands before the people saying: I am innocent of the blood of this just person, and that ye shall see. Then answered all the people and said: his blood be on us, and on our children. Then let he Barabbas loose unto them, and scourged Jesus, and delivered him to be crucified.
Then the soldiers of the deputy took Jesus unto the common hall, and gathered unto him all the company. And they stripped him and put on him a purple robe, and *plaited a crown of thorns and put upon his head, and a reed in his right hand: and bowed their knees before him, and mocked him, saying: hail king of the Jews: and spitted upon him, and took the reed and smote him on the head.
And when they had mocked him, they took the robe off him again, and put his own raiment on him, and led him away to crucify him. And as they came out, they found a man of Cyren, named Simon: him they compelled to bear his cross. And when they came unto the place, called Golgotha (that is to say, a place of dead mens skulls) they gave him vinegar to drink mingled with *gall. And when he had tasted thereof, he would not drink.
When they had crucified him, they parted his garments, and did cast lots: to fulfil that was spoken by the Prophet: They divided my garments among them: and upon my vesture did cast lots. And they sat and watched him there and they set up over his head the cause of his death written: This is Jesus the king of the Jews. And there were two thieves crucified with him, one on the right hand, and another on the left.
They that passed by, reviled him wagging their heads and saying: Thou that destroyest the temple of God and buildest it in three days, save thyself. If thou be the son of God, come down from the cross. Likewise also the high priests mocking him with the Scribes and elders said: He saved other, him self he cannot save. If he be the king of Israel, let him now come down from the cross, and we will believe him. He trusted in God, let him deliver him now, if he will have him: for he said, I am the son of God. That same also the thieves which were crucified with him, cast in his teeth.
From the sixth hour was there darkness over all the land unto the ninth hour. And about the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying: Eli, Eli, lama asbathani. That is to say, my God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me? Some of them that stood there, when they heard that, said: This man calleth for *Helias. And straight way one of them ran and took a sponge and filled it full of vinegar, and put it on a reed, and gave him to drink. Other said, let be: let us see whether *Helias will come and deliver him. Jesus cried again with a loud voice and yielded up the ghost.
And behold the veil of the temple did rent in *twain from the top to the bottom, and the earth did quake, and the stones did rent and graves did open: and the bodies of many saints which slept, arose and came out of the graves after his resurrection, and came into the holy city, and appeared unto many. When the Centurion and they that were with him watching Jesus, saw the earthquake and those things which happened, they feared greatly, saying, Of a surety this was the son of God.
And many women were there, beholding him afar off, which followed Jesus from Galile, ministering unto him. Among which was Mary Magdalen, and Mary the mother of James and Joses, and the mother of Zebedes children. When the evening was come, there came a rich man of Arimathia named Joseph, which same also was Jesus disciple. He went to Pilate and begged the body of Jesus. Then Pilate commanded the body to be delivered. And Joseph took the body, and wrapped it in a clean linen cloth, and put it in his new tomb, which he had hewn out, even in the rock, and rolled a great stone to the door of the sepulchre and departed. And there was Mary Magdalene and the other Mary sitting over against the sepulchre. The next day that followeth the day of preparing the Saboth, the high priests and Pharisees got themselves to Pilate and said: Sir, we remember, that this deceiver said while he was yet alive. After three days I will arise again. Command therefore that the sepulchre be made sure until the third day, lest peradventure his disciples come and steal him away and say unto the people, he is risen from death, and the last error be worse than the first. Pilate said unto them. Take watchmen: Go, and make it as sure as ye can. And they went and made the sepulchre sure with watchmen, and sealed the stone

THE GOSPELL OF ST. MARK Chpt 10
And Jesus looked round about, and said unto his disciples: what an hard thing is it for them that have riches, to enter into the kingdom of God. And his disciples were astonished at his words. But Jesus answered again and said unto them: children how hard is it for them, that trust in riches, to enter into the kingdom of God? It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of an needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God. And they were astonished out of measure, saying between themselves: who then can be saved? Jesus looked upon them, and said: with men it is unpossible, but not with God: for with God all things are possible.
And Peter began to say unto him: Lo, we have forsaken all, and have followed thee. Jesus answered and said: Verily I say unto you, there is no man that forsaketh house, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, other children, or lands for my sake and the Gospels, which shall not receive an hundred fold now in this life: houses, and brethren, and sisters, and mothers, and children, and lands with persecutions: and in the world to come, eternal life. Many that are first, shall be last: and the last, first. And they were in the way going up to Jerusalem. And Jesus went before them: and they were amazed, and as they followed, were afraid.
THE GOSPELL OF ST. LUKE Chpt 12
When they bring you unto the synagogues, and unto the rulers, and officers, take no thought how or what thing ye shall answer or what ye shall speak. For the holy ghost shall teach you in the same hour, what ye ought to say.
One of the company said unto him: Master, bid my brother divide the inheritance with me. And he said unto him: Man, who made me a judge or a divider over you? Wherefore he said unto them: take heed, and beware of covetousness. For no mans life standeth in the abundance of the things which he possesseth. And he put forth a similitude unto them saying: The ground of a certain rich man brought forth fruits plenteously, and he thought in him self saying: what shall I do? because I have no room where to bestow my fruits? And he said: This will I do. I will destroy my barns, and build greater, and therein will I gather all my fruits, and my goods: and I will say to my soul: Soul thou hast much goods laid up in store for many years, take thine ease: eat, drink, and be merry. But God said unto him: Thou fool, this night will they fetch away thy soul again from thee. Then whose shall those things be which thou hast provided? So is it with him that gathered riches? and is not rich in God.
And he spake unto his disciples: Therefore I say unto you: Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat: neither for your body, what ye shall put on. The life is more than meat, and the body is more then raiment. Consider the ravens, for they neither sow nor reap, which neither have storehouse nor barn, and yet God feedeth them. How much are ye better then the fowls. Which of you with taking thought can add to his stature one cubit? If ye then be not able to do that thing which is least: why take ye thought for the remnant? Consider the lilies how they grow: They labor not: they spin not: and yet I say unto you, that Salomon in all this royalty, was not clothed like to one of these.
If the grass which is today in the field, and tomorrow shall be cast into the furnace, God so clothe, how much more will he clothe you, o ye endued with little faith? And ask not what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink, neither climb ye up on high: for all such things the heathen people of the world seek for. Your father knoweth that ye have need of such things. Wherefore seek ye after the kingdom of God, and all these things shall be ministered unto you. Fear not little flock, for it is your fathers pleasure, to give you a kingdom. Sell that ye have, and give alms. And make you bags, which wax not old, and treasure that faileth not in heaven, where no thief cometh, neither moth corrupteth. For where your treasure is, there will your hearts be also.
Let your loins be girded about, and your lights burning, and ye yourselves like unto men, that wait for their master, when he will return from a wedding: that as soon as he cometh and knocketh, they may open unto him. Happy are those servants, which the Lord when he cometh shall find waking. Verily I say unto you, he will gird himself about and make them sit down to meat, and walk by and minister unto them. And if he come in the second watch, ye if he come in the third watch, and shall find them so, happy are those servants. This understand, that if the good man of the house knew what hour the thief would come, he would surely watch: and not suffer his house to be broken up. Be ye prepared therefore: for the son of man will come at an hour when ye think not.
Then Peter said unto him: Master, tellest thou this similitude unto us, or to all men? And the Lord said: If there be any faithful servant and wise, whom his Lord shall make ruler over his household, to give them their duetie of meat at due season: happy is that servant, whom his master when he cometh, shall find so doing. Of a truth I say unto you: that he will make him ruler over all that he hath. But and if the evil servant shall say in his heart: My master will defer his coming, and shall begin to smite the servants and maidens, and to eat and drink and to be drunken: the lord of that servant will come in a day, when he thinketh not and at an hour when he is not ware, and will divide him, and will give him his reward with the unbelievers.
The servant that knew his masters will and prepared not him self, neither did according to his will, shall be beaten with many stripes. But he that knew not, and yet did commit things worthy of stripes, shall be beaten with few stripes. For unto whom much is given, of him shall be much required. And to whom men much commit, the more of him will they ask.
I am come to send fire on earth: and what is my desire, but that it were already kindled? Notwithstanding I must be baptised with a baptism: and how am I pained till it be ended? Suppose ye that I am come to send peace on earth? I tell you nay, but rather debate. For from henceforth there shall be five in one house divided, three against two, and two against three. The father shall be divided against the son, and the son against the father. The mother against the daughter, and the daughter against the mother. The mother in law against her daughter in law, and the daughter in law against her mother in law.
Then said he to the people: when ye see a cloud rise out of the west straight way ye say: we shall have a shower, and so it is. And when ye se the south wind blow, ye say: we shall have heat, and it cometh to pass. Hypocrites, ye can skill of the fashion of the earth, and of the sky: but what is the cause, that ye cannot skill of this time? Ye and why judge ye not of yourselves what is right?
While thou goest with thine adversary to the ruler: as thou art in the way, give diligence that thou mayest be delivered from him, lest he bring thee to the judge, and the judge deliver thee to the jailer, and the jailer cast thee in to prison. I tell thee, thou departest not thence, till thou have made good the utmost mite
THE GOSPELL OF ST. LUKE Chpt 16
And he said also unto his disciples. There was a certain rich man, which had a steward, that was accused unto him, that he had wasted his goods. And he called him: and said unto him: How is it, that I hear this of thee? Give accounts of thy stewardship: for thou mayest be no longer steward. The steward said with in him self: what shall I do? for my master will take away from me the stewardship. I cannot dig, and to beg, I am ashamed. I *wot what to do, that when I am put out of the stewardship, they may receive me into their houses.
Then called he all his masters debtors, and said unto the first: how much owest thou unto my master? And he said: an hundred tuns of oil. And he said to him: take thy bill, and sit down quickly, and write fifty. Then said he to another: what owest thou? And he said: an hundred quarters of wheat. He said to him: Take thy bill, and write fourscore. And the Lord commended the unjust steward because he had done wisely. For the children of this world are in their kind, wiser then the children of light. And I say also unto you: make you friends of the wicked mammon, that when ye shall depart, they may receive you into everlasting habitations.
He that is faithful in that which is least the same is faithful in much. And he that is unfaithful in the least: is unfaithful also in much. So then if ye have not been faithful in the wicked mammon, who will believe you in that which is true? And if ye have not been faithful in another mans business: who shall give you your own? No servant can serve two masters, for either he shall hate the one and love the other, or else he shall lean to the one and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.
All these things heard the Pharisees also which were covetous, and they mocked him. And he said unto them: Ye are they which justify yourselves before men: but God knoweth your hearts. For that which is highly esteemed among men, is abominable in the sight of God.
The law and the Prophets reigned until the time of John: and since that time the kingdom of God is preached, and every man striveth to go in. Sooner shall heaven and earth perish than one tittle of the law shall perish. Whosoever forsaketh his wife and marrieth another, breaketh matrimony. And every man which marrieth her that is divorced from her husband, committeth *advoutry also.
There was a certain rich man, which was clothed in purple and fine byss, and fared deliciously every day. And there was a certain beggar named Lazarus, which lay at his gate full of sores desiring to be refreshed with the crumbs which fell from the rich mans board. Nevertheless, the dogs came and licked his sores. And it fortuned that the beggar died, and was carried by the angels into Abrahams bosom. The rich man also died, and was buried.
And being in hell in torments, he lift up his eyes and saw Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom, and he cried and said: father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus that he may dip the tip of his finger in water, and cool my tongue: for I am tormented in this flame. But Abraham said unto him: Son, remember that thou in thy lifetime, receivedst thy pleasure, and contrary wise Lazarus pain. Now therefore is he comforted, and thou art punished. Beyond all this, between you and us there is a great space set, so that they which would go from hence to you cannot: neither may come from thence to us.
Then he said I pray thee therefore father, send him to my fathers house. For I have five brethren: for to warn them lest they also come into this place of torment. Abraham said unto him: they have Moses and the Prophets, let them hear them. And he said: nay father Abraham, but if one came unto them from the dead, they would repent. He said unto him: If they hear not Moses and the Prophets, neither will they believe, though one rose from death again

THE GOSPELL OF ST. LUKE Chpt 18
And he put forth a similitude unto them, signifying that men ought pray, and not to be weary saying: There was a Judge in a certain city, which feared not God neither regarded man. And there was a certain widow in the same city, which came unto him saying: avenge me of mine adversary. And he would not for a while. But afterward he said unto himself: though I fear not God nor care for man, yet because this widow troubleth me, I will avenge lest at the last she come and hag on me.
And the Lord said hear what the unrighteous Judge saith. And shall not God avenge his elect, which cry day and night unto him, yee though he defer them? I tell you he will avenge them and that quickly. Nevertheless, when the son of man cometh, suppose you, that he shall find faith on the earth.
And he put forth this similitude, unto certain which trusted in them selves that they were perfect, and despised other. Two men went up into the temple to pray: the one a Pharisee, and the other a publican. The Pharise stood and prayed thus with him self. God I thank thee that I am not as other men are, extortioners, unjust, *advoutrers, or as this publican. I fast twice in the week. I give tithe of all that I possess. And the publican stood afar off, and would not lift up his eyes to heaven, but smote his breast saying: God be mercyfull to me a sinner. I tell you this man departed home to his house justified more than the other. For every man that exalteth himself, shall be brought low: An he that humbleth himself, shall be exalted.
They brought unto him also babes, that he should touch them. When the disciples saw that, they rebuked them. But Jesus called them unto him, and said: *Suffer children to come unto me, and forbid them not. For of such is the kingdom of God. Verily I say unto you: whosoever receiveth not the kingdom of God as a child, he shall not enter therein.
And a certain ruler asked him saying: good master: what ought I to do, to obtain eternal life? Jesus said unto him: Why callest thou me good? None is good, save God only. Thou knowest the commandments: Thou shalt not commit *advoutry: thou shalt not kill: thou shalt not steal: thou shalt not bear false witness: Honour thy father and thy mother. And he said: all these have I kept from my youth. When Jesus heard that, he said unto him: Yet lackest thou one thing.
Sell all that thou hast, and distribute it unto the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven, and come, and follow me. When he heard that, he was heavy: for he was very rich.
When Jesus saw him mourn, he said: with what difficulty shall they that have riches, enter into the kingdom of God: it is easier for a camel to go through a needles eye, then for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God. Then said they that heard that: And who shall then be saved? And he said: Things which are unpossible with men are possible with God.
Then Peter said: Lo we have left all, and have followed thee. And he said unto them: Verily I say unto you, there is no man that leaveth house, other father and mother, other brethren or wife, or children for the kingdom of Gods sake, which same shall not receive much more in this world: and in the world to come, life everlasting.
He took unto him twelve, and said unto them. Behold we go up to Jerusalem, and all shall be fulfilled that are written by the Prophets of the son of man. He shall be delivered unto the gentiles, and shall be mocked, and shall be despitefully entreated, and shall be spitted on: and when they have scourged him, they will put him to death, and the third day he shall arise again. But they understood none of these things. And this saying was hid from them. And they perceived not the things which were spoken.
And it came to pass, as he was come nigh unto *Hericho, a certain blind man sat by the way side begging. And when he heard the people pass by, he asked what it meant. And they said unto him, that Jesus of Nazareth passed by. And he cried saying: Jesus the son of David, have thou mercy on me. And they which went before rebuked him, that he should hold his peace. But he cried so much the more, thou son of David have mercy on me. And Jesus stood still, and commanded him to be brought unto him. And when he was come near, he asked him saying: what wilt thou that I do unto thee? And he said: Lord that I may receive my sight. Jesus said unto him: receive thy sight: thy faith hath saved thee. And immediately he saw, and followed him, praising God. And all the people, when they saw it, gave laud to God

Let the brother of low degree rejoice in that he is exalted, and the rich in that he is made low. For even as the flower of the grass, shall he vanish away. The *son riseth with heat, and the grass withereth, and his flower falleth away, and the beauty of the fashion of it perisheth: even so shall the rich man perish with his abundance.

And he entered in, and went through *Hericho. And behold, there was a man named Zacheus, which was a ruler among the Publicans, and was rich also. And he made means to see Jesus, what he should be: and could not for the press, because he was of a low stature. Wherefore he ran before, and climbed up into a wild fig tree, to see him: for he should come that way. And when Jesus came to the place, he looked up, and saw him, and said unto him: Zache, come down at once, for today I must abide at thy house. And he came down hastily and received him joyfully. And when they saw that they all grudged saying: He is gone in to tarry with a man that is a sinner.
And Zache stood forth and said unto the Lord: behold Lord, the half of my goods I give to the poor, and if I have done any man wrong, I will restore him four fold. And Jesus said to him: this day is health come unto this house, for as much as he also is become the child of Abraham. For the son of man is come to seek and to save that which was lost.
As they heard these things, he added thereto a similitude, because he was nigh to *Herusalem, and because also they thought that the kingdom of God should shortly appear. He said therefore: a certain nobleman went into a far country, to receive him a kingdom, and then to come again. And he called his ten servants, and delivered them ten pounds saying unto them: buy and sell till I come. But his citizens hated him, and sent messengers after him saying: We will not have this man to reign over us.
And it came to pass, when he was come again and had received his kingdom, he commanded these servants, to be called to him (to whom he gave his money) to *wit what every man had done. Then came the first, saying: Lord, thy pound hath increased ten pounds. And he said unto him. Well good servant because thou wast faithful in a very little thing, take thou authority over ten cities. And the other came saying: Lord thy pound hath increased five pounds. And to the same he said: and be thou also ruler over five cities.
And the third came and said: Lord behold here thy pound, which I have kept in a napkin, for I feared thee, because thou art a strait man: thou takest up that thou laidst not down, and reapest that thou didst not sow. And he said unto him: Of thine own mouth, judge I thee thou evil servant. Knewest thou that I am a strait man taking up that I laid not down, and reaping that I did not sow? Wherefore then gavest not thou my money into the bank, that at my coming I might have required mine own with vantage?
And he said to them that stood by: take from him that pound, and give it him that hath ten pounds. And they said unto him Lord he hath ten pounds. I say unto you, that unto all them that have, it shall be given: and from him that hath not, even that he hath shall be taken from him. Moreover those mine enemies, which would not that I should reign over them bring hither, and slay them before me. And when he had thus spoken, he proceeded forth before, ascending up to Jerusalem.
And it fortuned, when he was come nigh to Bethphage and Bethany, besides mount Olivete, he sent two of his disciples saying: Go ye in to the town which is over against you. In the which as soon as ye are come, ye shall find a colt tied, whereon yet never man sat. Loose him and bring him hither. And if any man ask you, why that ye loose him: thus say unto him, the Lord hath need of him.
They that were sent, went their way and found, even as he had said unto them. And as they were a loosing the colt, the owners said unto them: why loose ye the colt? And they said: for the Lord hath need of him. And they brought him to Jesus. And they cast their raiment on the colt, and set Jesus theron. And as he went, they spread their clothes in the way.
And when he was now come, where he should go down from the mount Olivete, the whole multitude of the disciples began to rejoice, and to laud God with a loud voice, for all the miracles that they had seen, saying: Blessed be the king that cometh in the name of the Lord: peace in heaven, and glory in the highest. And some of the Pharisees of the company said unto him: Master rebuke thy disciples. He answered, and said unto them: I tell you if these should hold their peace, the stones would cry.
And when he was come near, he beheld the city, and wept on it saying: If thou hadst known those things which belong unto thy peace, even at this thy time? But now are they hid from thine eyes. For the days shall come upon thee, that thy enemies shall cast a bank about thee, and compass thee round, and keep thee in on every side, and make thee even with the ground, with thy children which are in thee. And they shall not leave in thee one stone upon another, because thou knewest not the time of thy visitation.
And he went in to the temple, and began to cast out them that sold therein, and them that bought saying unto them, it is written: my house is the house of prayer: but ye have made it a den of thieves. And he taught daily in the temple. The high Priests and the scribes and the chief of the people went about to destroy him: but could not find what to do. For all the people stuck by him, and gave him audience
