Dearly beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, how that one day is with the Lord, as a thousand year, and a thousand year as one day.
The Lord is not slack to fulfil his promise, as some men count slackness: but is patient to us ward, and would have no man lost, but would receive all men to repentance.

THE GOSPELL OF ST. MATTHEW Chpt 11
And as they departed, Jesus began to speak unto the people of John. To see what, went ye out into the wilderness? Went ye out to see a reed shaken with the wind? other went ye out for to see? A man clothed in soft raiment? Behold they that wear soft clothing, are in kings houses. But what went ye out for to see? A Prophet? Ye I say to you and more than a Prophet. For this is he of whom it is written, Behold, I send my messenger before thy face, which shall prepare thy way before thee.
Verily I say unto you, among the children of women arose there not a greater than John the Baptist. Notwithstanding he that is less in the kingdom of heaven, is greater than he. From the time of John Baptist hitherto the kingdom of heaven suffereth violence, and they that go to it with violence pluck it unto them. For all the Prophets and the law prophesied unto the time of John. And also if ye will receive it, this is Elias which should come. He that hath ears to hear let him hear.
But whereunto shall I liken this generation? It is like unto children which sit in the market and call unto their fellows, and say: we have piped unto you, and ye have not danced? We have mourned unto you, and ye have not sorrowed. For John came neither eating nor drinking, and they say, he hath the devil. The son of man came eating and drinking, and they say, behold a glutton and drinker of wine, and a friend unto publicans and sinners. Neverthelater wisdom is justified of her children.
THE GOSPELL OF ST. MATTHEW Chpt 17
And after six days Jesus took Peter and James and John his brother, and brought them up into an high mountain out of the way, and was transfigured before them: and his face did shine as the sun, and his clothes were as white as the light. And behold there appeared unto them, Moses and *HElias, talking with him. Then answered Peter, and said to Jesus: master here is good being for us. If thou wilt, let us make here three tabernacles, one for thee, and one for Moses, and one for *HElias. While he yet spake, behold a bright cloud shadowed them. And behold there came a voice out of the cloud saying: this is my dear son, in whom I delight, hear him. And when the disciples heard that, they fell on their faces, and were sore afraid. And Jesus came and touched them, and said: arise and be not afraid. And when they looked up, they saw no man, save Jesus only.
And as they came down from the mountain, Jesus charged them saying: see that ye show the vision to no man, until the son of man be risen again from death. And his disciples asked of him, saying: Why then say the Scribes, that *HElias must first come? Jesus answered, and said unto them: *HElias shall first come, and restore all things. And I say unto you that HElias is come already, and they knew him not: but have done unto him whatsoever they lusted. In like wise shall also the son of man suffer of them. Then the disciples perceived that he spake unto them of John Baptist. And when they were come to the people, there came to him a certain man, and kneeled down to him, and said: Master have mercy on my son for he is lunatic: and is sore vexed. And oft times he falleth into the fire, and oft into the water. And I brought him to thy disciples, and they could not heal him. Jesus answered and said: O generation faithless and crooked: how long shall I be with you? how long shall I suffer you? bring him hither to me. And Jesus rebuked the devil, and he came out of him. And the child was healed even that same hour.
*Helias (Elias) *
THE GOSPELL OF ST. MATTHEW Chpt 27
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.
THE GOSPELL OF ST. MATTHEW Chpt 28
he angel answered and said to the women, fear ye not. I know that ye seek Jesus which was crucified: he is not here: he is risen as he said. Come, and see the place where the Lord was put: and go quickly and tell his disciples that he is risen from death. And behold, he will go before you into Galile, there ye shall see him. Lo I have told you.
And they departed quickly from the sepulchre with fear and great Joy: and did run to bring his disciples word. And as they went to tell his disciples: behold, Jesus met them saying: All hail. And they came and held him by the feet and worshipped him. Then said Jesus unto them: be not afraid. Go and tell my brethren, that they go into Galile, and there shall they see me. When they were gone: behold, some of the keepers came in to the city, and showed unto the high priests, all the things that were happened. And they gathered them together with the elders, and took counsel, and gave large money unto the soldiers saying: Say that his disciples came by night, and stole him away while ye slept. And if this come to the rulers ears, we will pease him, and save you harmless. And they took the money and did as they were taught. And this saying is noised among the Jews unto this day.
Then the eleven disciples went away into Galile, into a mountain where Jesus had appointed them. And when they saw him, they worshipped him. But some of them doubted. And Jesus came and spake unto them saying: All power is given unto me in heaven, and in earth. Go therefore and teach all nations, baptising them in the name of the father, and the son, and the holy ghost: Teaching them to observe all things, whatsoever I commanded you. And lo, I am with you alway, even until the end of the world
THE REVELATION OF ST JOHN Chpt 11
And then was given me a reed, like unto a rod, and it was said unto me: Rise and meet the temple of God, and the altar, and them that worship therein, and the *quere which is within the temple, cast out and meet it not: for it is given unto the Gentiles, and the holy city shall they tread under foot forty two months. And I will give power unto my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy one thousand, two hundred and sixty days, clothed in sack cloth. These are two olive trees, and two candlesticks, standing before the God of the earth.
And if any man will hurt them, fire shall proceed out of their mouths, and consume their enemies. And if any man will hurt them this wise must he be killed. These have power to shut heaven, that it rain not in the days of their prophesying: and have power over waters to turn them to blood, and to smite the earth with all manner plagues, as often as they will.
And when they have finished their testimony, the beast that came out of the bottomless pit, shall make war against them and shall overcome them, and kill them. And their bodies shall lie in the streets of the great city, which spiritually is called *Zodom and Eygpt, where our Lord was crucified. And they of the people and kindreds, and tongues, and they of the nations, shall see their bodies three days and an half, and shall not *suffer their bodies to be put in graves. And they that dwell upon the earth, shall rejoice over them and be glad, and shall send gifts one to another for these two Prophets vexed them that dwelt on the earth.
And after three days and an half the spirit of life from God, entered into them. And they stood up upon their feet: and great fear came upon them which saw them. And they heard a great voice from heaven, saying unto them. Come up hither. And they ascended up into heaven in a cloud, and their enemies saw them. And the same hour was there a great earthquake, and the tenth part of the city fell, and in the earthquake were slain names of men seven thousand and the remnant were feared, and gave glory to God of heaven. The second woe is past, and third woe will come *anon.
And the seventh angel blew, and there were made great voices in heaven, saying: the kingdoms of this world are our Lords and his Christs, and he shall reign for evermore. And the twenty four elders, which sit before God on their seats, fell upon their faces, and worshipped God saying: we give thee thanks Lord God almighty: which art and wast, and art to come, for thou hast received thy great might, and hast reigned. And the nations were angry, and thy wrath is come, and the time of the dead that they should be judged and that thou shouldest give reward unto thy servants the Prophets and Saints, and to them that fear thy name small and great and shouldest destroy them, which destroy the earth. And the temple of God was opened in heaven, and there was seen in his temple, the ark of his testament: and there followed lightnings, and voices, and thunderings and earthquake, and much hail

THE FOURTH BOOK OF ESDRAS Chpt 2
Thus sayeth the Lord: I brought this people out of bondage, I gave them my commandments by my servants the Prophets, whom thou wouldest not hear, but despised my counsels. The mother that bear them, sayeth unto them: Go your way ye children, for I am a widow and forsaken: I brought you up with gladness, but with sorrow and heaviness have I lost you: for ye have sinned before the Lord your God, and done the thing that is evil before him. But what shall I now do unto you? I am a widow and forsaken: go your way, O my children, and ask mercy of the Lord. As for me, O' father, I call upon thee for a witness over the mother of these children, which would not keep my covenant: that thou bring them to confusion, and their mother to a spoil, that she bear no more. Let their names be scattered abroad among the heathen, let them be put out of the earth, for they have thought scorn of my covenant.
Woe be unto the Assur, thou that hidest the unrighteous by thee. Thou wicked people, remember what I did unto Sodom and Gomorha, whos land is turned to pitch and ashes. Even so also I will do unto all them, that hear me not, sayeth the almighty Lord. Thus sayeth the Lord unto Esdras: Tell my people, that I will give them the Kingdom of Jerusalem, which I would have given unto Israel. Their glory also will I take unto me, and give them the everlasting tabernacles, which I had prepared for those.
The tree of life shall be unto them a sweet smelling ointment: they shall neither labor or be weary. Go ye your way, and ye shall receive it. Pray for yourselves a few days, that they may dwell therein. Now is the Kingdom prepared for you, therefore watch. Take heaven and earth to witness for I have broken the evil in pieces, and created the good, for I live sayeth the Lord. Mother embrace thy children, and bring them up with gladness: make their feet as fast as a piler, for I have chosen them, sayeth the Lord.
And those that be dead will I raise up again from their places, and bring them out of their graves, for I have known my name in Israel. Fear not thou mother of the children, for I have chosen thee, sayeth the Lord. And for thy help I will send thee my servants Isaie and Jeremy, after whos counsel I have sanctioned and prepared for the twelve trees with diverse fruits, and as many wells, flowing with milk and honey, and seven mountains, where upon there grow roses and lilies, wherein I will fill my children with joy. Execute justice for the widow, be judge for the fatherless: give to the poor: heal the wounded and the sick: laugh not a lame man to scorn: defend the cripple, and let the blind come into the light of my clearness. Keep the old and the young within thy walls: wheresoever thou findest the dead, take them, and bury them, and I shall give you thee, the first place in my resurrection. Hold still (O' my people) and take thy rest, for thy quietness is come. Feed thy children O' thou good nurse, establish their feet: As for the servants whom I have given thee, there shall not be one of them perish, for I will seek them from thy number, vex not thy self.
For when the day of trouble and heaviness cometh, others shall weep and be sorrowful, but thou shall be merry and plenteous. The heathen shall be jealous, but they shall be able to do nothing against thee, sayeth the Lord. My hands shall cover thee, so that thy children shall not see the fire everlasting. Be joyful O' thou mother with thy children, for I will deliver thee, sayeth the Lord. Remember thy dead children, for I shall bring them out of the earth, and show mercy unto them, for I am merciful, sayeth the Lord almighty.
Embrace thy children, until I come, and show mercy unto them, for my wells run over, and my grace shall not fail.
I Esdras received a charge of the Lord upon the mount Oreb, that I should go unto Israel. But when I came unto Israel they set me at naught, and destroyed the commandment of the Lord. And therefore I say unto you, O' ye Heathen that hear and understand: Look for your shepherd, he shall give you everlasting rest: for he is nigh at hand, that shall come in the end of the world. Be ready to the reward of the Kingdom, for the everlasting light shall shine upon you for evermore. Flee the shadows of this world, receive the joyfulness of your glory. I testify my favor openly: O' receive the gift that is given you, and be glad, giving thanks unto him, that hath called you to the heavenly Kingdom.
Arise up! and stand fast: behold the number of those that be sealed in the feast of the Lord, which are departed from the shadow of the world, and have received glorious garments of the Lord. Take thy number O' Sion, and shut up thy purified, which have fulfilled the law of the Lord. The number of thy children that thou longest for, is fulfilled: beseech the power of the Lord, that thy people which have been called from the beginning, may be hallowed.
I Esdras saw upon the mount Sion a great people, whom I could not number, and they all praised the Lord with songs of thanksgiving. And in the mist of them was a young man of high stature, more excellent that all they, and on every one of their heads he set a crown, and was ever higher and higher, which I marveled at greatly. So I asked the angel, and said: Sir, what are these? He answered and said unto me: These be they that have put off the mortal clothing and put on the immortal, and have testified and knowledged the name of God. Now are they crowned and receive the reward.
Then said I unto the angel: what young person is it, that crowneth them, and giveth them the palms in their hands? So he answered and said unto me: It is the son of God, whom they have knowledged in the world. Then began I greatly to commend them, that stood so stiffly for the name of the Lord. And so the angel said unto me: Go thy way, and tell my people, what manner of things and how great wonders of the Lord thy God, thou hast seen!
