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. MARK Chpt 13
When ye shall hear of war and tidings of war, be ye not troubled. For such things must needs be. But the end is not yet. For there shall nation arise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there shall be earth quakes in all quarters, and famishment and troubles. These are the beginning of sorrows. But take ye heed to yourselves. For they shall bring you up to the councils and into the synagogues, and ye shall be beaten: yea and shall be brought before rulers and kings for my sake, for a testimonial unto them. And the Gospel must first be published among all nations.
But when they lead you and present you take no thought aforehand what ye shall say, neither imagine: but whatsoever is given you at the same time, that speak. For it shall not be ye that shall speak, but the holy ghost. Yea and the brother shall deliver the brother to death, and the father the son, and the children shall rise against their fathers and mothers, and shall put them to death. And ye shall be hated of all men for my names sake. But whosoever shall endure unto the end, the same shall be safe.
Moreover when ye see the abomination that betokeneth desolation, whereof is spoken by Daniel the prophet, stand where it ought not, let him that readeth understand. Then let them that be in *Jurie, flee to the mountains. And let him that is on the house top, not descend down into the house, neither enter therein, to fetch anything out of his house. And let him that is in the field, not turn back again unto those things which he left behind him, for to take his clothes with him. Woe shall be then to them that are with child, and to them that give suck in those days. But pray, that your flight be not in the winter. For there shall be in those days such tribulation, as was not from the beginning of creatures which God created unto this time, neither shall be. And except that the Lord should shorten those days, no man should be saved. But for the elects sake, which he hath chosen, he hath shortened those days.
And then, if any man say to you: lo, here is Christ: lo, he is there, believe not. For false Christs shall arise, and false prophets, and shall show miracles and wonders, to deceive if it were possible, even the elect. But take ye heed: behold I have showed you all things before.
Moreover in those days, after that tribulation, the sun shall wax dark, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars of heaven shall fall: and the powers which are in heaven, shall move. And then shall they see the son of man coming in the clouds, with great power and glory. And then shall he send his angels, and shall gather together his elect from the four winds, and from the one end of the world to the other.
Learn a similitude of the fig tree. When his branches are yet tender, and hath brought forth leaves, ye know that summer is near. So in like manner when ye see these things come to pass: understand, that it is nigh even at the doors. Verily I say unto you, that this generation shall not pass, till all these things be done. Heaven and earth shall pass, but my words shall not pass. But of the day and the hour knoweth no man: no not the Angels which are in heaven: neither the son himself, save the father only.
Take heed, watch and pray, for ye know not when the time is. As a man which is gone into a strange country, and hath left his house, and given authority to his servants, and to every man his work, and commanded the porter to watch. Watch therefore, for ye know not when the master of the house will come, whether at evening or at midnight, whether at the cock crowing or in the dawning: lest if he come suddenly, he should find you sleeping. And that I say unto you, I say unto all men, watch
TO THE HEBREWS Chpt 3
Therefore holy brethren, partakers of the celestial callings consider the ambassador and high priest of our profession Christ Jesus, which was faithful to him that made him, even as was Moses in all his house. And yet was this man counted worthy of more glory than Moses: In as much as he which hath prepared the house, hath most honour in the house. Every house is prepared of some man. But he that ordained all things, is God. And Moses verily was faithful in all his house, as a minister, to bear witness of those things which should be spoken afterward. But Christ as a son, hath rule over the house, whose house are we, so that we hold fast the confidence and the rejoicing of that hope, unto the end.
Wherefore as the *holy ghost saith: today if ye shall hear his voice, harden not your hearts, after the rebellion in the day of temptation in the wilderness, where your fathers tempted me, proved me, and saw my works forty years long. Wherefore I was grieved with that generation and said: They *erre ever in their hearts: they verily have not known my ways so that I sware in my wrath, that they should not enter into my rest. Take heed brethren that there be in none of you an evil heart in unbelief, that he should depart from the living God: but exhort one another daily, while it is called today, lest any of you wax hard hearted through the deceitfulness of sin.
We are partakers of Christ if we keep sure unto the end the first substance, so long as it is said: today if ye hear his voice, harden not your hearts, as when ye rebelled. For some, when they heard, rebelled: how be it not all that came out of Egypt under Moses. But with whom was he displeased forty years? Was he not displeased with them that sinned whose carcasses were overthrown in the desert? To whom sware he that they should not enter into his rest: but unto them that believed not? And we see that they could not enter in, because of unbelief.
THE FIRST TO THE CORINTHIANS Chpt 3
Are ye not *ware that ye are the temple of God, and how that the spirit of God dwelleth in you? If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy. For the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are. Let no man deceive him self. If any man seem wise among you, let him be a fool in this world, that he may be wise. For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it is written: he compasses the wise in their craftiness. And again, God knoweth the thoughts of the wise that they be vain. Therefore let no man rejoice in men. For all things are yours, whether it be Paul, either Apollos, either Cephas: whether it be the world, or life, either death, whether they be present things or things to come: all are yours: and ye are Christs, and Christ is Gods.
THE REVELATION OF ST JOHN Chpt 18
And after that, I saw another Angel come from heaven, having great power, and the earth was lightened with his brightness. And he cried mightily with a strong voice saying: Great Babylon is fallen, is fallen: and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of all foul spirits, and a cage of all unclean and hateful birds for all nations have drunken of the wine of the wrath of her fornication. And the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and her merchants are waxed rich of the abundance of her pleasures.
And I heard another voice from heaven, say: come away from her my people, that ye be not partakers in her sins, that ye receive not of her plagues. For her sins are gone up to heaven, and God hath remembered her wickedness. Reward her even as she rewarded you, and give her double according to her works. And pour in double to her in the same cup which she filled unto you. And as much as she glorified herself and lived wantonly so much pour ye in for her of punishment and sorrow, for she said in her heart: I sit being a queen and am no widow and shall see no sorrow. Therefore shall her plagues come at one day, death, and sorrow, and hunger, and she shall be burnt with fire: for strong is the Lord God which judgeth her.
And the kings of the earth shall beweep her and wail over her, which have committed fornication with her, and have lived wantonly with her, when they shall see the smoke of her burning, and shall stand afar off, for fear of her punishment, saying . Alas, Alas, that great city Babylon, that mighty city: for at one hour is her judgment come. And the merchants of the earth shall weep and wail in themselves, for no man will buy their ware any more, the ware of gold and silver, and precious stones, neither of pearl, and raynes and purple, and scarlet, and all thine wood, and all manner vessels of ivory, and all manner vessels of most precious wood, and of brass and of iron, and cinnamon, and odours, and ointments, and frankincense, and wine, and oil, and fine flour, and wheat, beasts, and sheep, and horses, and chariots, and bodies and souls of men.
ESAI or ISAIAH Chpt 5
Woe be unto them that call evil good, and good evil: which make darkness light, and light darkness, that make sour sweet, and sweet sour. Woe be unto them that are wise in their own sight, and think themselves to have understanding. Woe be unto them that are conning men to sup out wine and expert to set up drunkenness. These give sentence with the ungodly for rewards, but condemn the just cause of the righteous.
Therefore like as the fire licketh up the straw, as the flame consumeth the stubble: Even so ( when their root is full ) their blossom shall vanish away as dust or smoke: for they despise the law of the Lord of Hosts, and blaspheme the word of the holy maker of Israel.
Therefore is the wrath of the Lord kindled also against his people, and he shaketh his hand at them: yee he shall smite so, that the hills shall tremble. And their carcasses shall lie in the open streets, like mire. After all this, the wrath of God shall not cease, but he shall stretch his hand wider. And he shall give a token unto a strange people, and call unto them in a far country: and behold, they shall come hastily with speed. There is not one faint or feeble among them, no not a sluggish or slippery person. There shall not one of them put off the girdle from his loins, *ner loose the latchet of their shoe. Their arrows are sharp, and their bows bent. Their horses hoofs are like flint, and their cart wheels like a stormy wind. Their cry is as it were of a lion, and the roaring of them like lions whelps. They shall roar, and haunch up the prey, and no man shall recover it or get it from them. In that day they shall be fierce upon them, as the sea. And if we look unto the land, behold, it shall be all darkness and sorrow. If we look to heaven: behold, it shall be dark with careful desperation
ESAI or ISAIAH Chpt 3
Every man can *eschue a person moved to anger, for what he doth wisely? Even so shall the Lord of Hosts take away from Jerusalem and from Juda, all possessions and power, all meat and drink, the captain and the soldier, the judge and the prophet, the wise and the aged man, the worshipful of fifty year old, and the honorable: the Senators, and the men of understanding: the masters of crafts and orators. And I shall give you children to be your princes,( sayeth the Lord ) and babes shall have the rule of you. One shall ever be doing violence and wrong to another. The boy will presume against the elder, and the vile person against the honorable. Ye when one shall take a friend of his own kindred by the bosom, and say: Thou hast clothing, thou shalt be our head, for thou mayest keep us from this fall and peril.
Then shall he swear and say: I can not help you. Moreover, there is neither meat nor clothing in my house, make me no ruler of the people. For Jerusalem and Juda must decay, because both their words and counsel are against the Lord, they provoke the presence of his Majesty unto anger. The changing of their countenance betrayeth them, yee they declare their own sins themselves, as the Sodomites, and hide them not. Woe be unto their souls, for they shall be heavily rewarded. Then shall they say: O happy are the godly, for they may enjoy the fruits of their studies. But woe be unto the ungodly and unrighteous for they shall be rewarded after their works. O my people, *ribaudes oppress thee, and women have rule of thee. O my people, thy leaders deceive thee, and tread out the way of thy footsteps. The Lord is here to commune of the matter, and standeth to give judgement with the people. The Lord shall come forth to reason with the Senators and princes of his people, and shall say thus unto them: It is ye that have burnt up my vineyard, the robbery of the poor is in your house. Wherefore do ye oppress my people, and marred the faces of the innocents? thus shall the Lord God of Hosts revile them.
Moreover thus sayeth the Lord: Seeing the daughters of Sion are become so proud, and come in with stretched out necks, and with vain wanton eyes: seeing they come in tripping so nicely with their feet: Therefore shall the Lord shave the heads of the daughters of Sion, and make their beauty bare in the day. In that day shall the Lord take away the gorgeousness of their apparel, and spangles, chains, *partlets, and collars, bracelets and hooves, that goodly flowered wide and boarded raiment, brushes and head bands, rings and garlands, holy day clothes and veils, kerchiefs and pins, glasses and smocks, bonnets and *taches
And instead of good smell there shall be stink among them. And for their girdles there shall be loose bands. And for well set hair there shall be baldness. Instead of a stomacher, a sackcloth, and for their beauty witherdness and *son burning. Their husbands and their mighty men shall perish with the sword in battle
*eschue (avoid, escape) *ribaudes ( extortioners :MN). *partlets = ruffled covering for the neck. *taches = buckles, clasps, fasteners. *son burning exactly as recorded.
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.
And I saw a great white seat and him that sat on it, from whose face fled away both the earth and heaven, and their place was no more found. And I saw the dead, both great and small *stonde before God: And the books were opened, and another book was opened, which is the book of life, and the dead were judged of those things which were written in the books according to their deeds: and the sea gave up her dead, which were in her, and death and hell delivered up the dead, which were in them: and they were judged every man according to his deeds. And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is that second death. And whosoever was not found written in the book of life, was cast into the lake of fire
EZEKIEL or JEHEZEKIEL Chpt 16
Again, the word of the Lord spake unto me, saying: Thou son of man, show the city of Jerusalem their abominations, and say: thus saith the Lord God unto Jerusalem: Thy progeny and kindred came out of the land of Canaan, thy father was an Amorite, thy mother an Cethite. In the day of thy birth when thou wast born, the string of thy navel was not cut off: , thou wast not bathed in water to make thee clean: thou wast neither rubbed with salt, nor swaddled in clouts: No man regarded that so much, as to do any of these things for thee, or to show thee such favor, but thou was utterly cast out upon the field, yee despised wast thou in the day of thy birth.
Then came I by thee, and saw thee trodden down in thine own blood, and said unto thee: thou shalt be purged from thine own blood, from thine own blood ( I say ) shalt thou be cleansed. So I planted thee, as the blossom of the field: thou art grown up, and waxen great: thou hast gotten a marvelous pleasant beauty, thy breasts are come up, thy hair is goodly grown, where as thou was naked and bare afore.
Now when I went by thee, and looked upon thee: behold, thy time was come, yee even the time to vow thee. Then spread I my clothes over thee, to cover thy dishonesty: yee I made an oath unto thee, and married myself with thee ( sayeth the Lord God ) and so thou becamest mine own. Then washed I thee with water, and purged thy blood from thee, I anointed thee with oil, I gave thee change of rayments, I made thee shoes of Tarus leather: I girded thee about with white silk, I clothed thee with kerchues, I decked thee with costly apparel, I put rings upon thy fingers: and chain about thy neck, spangles on thy forehead, earrings upon thine ears, and set a beautiful crown upon thine head. Thus wast thou decked with silver and gold, and thy raiment was of fine white silk, of needle work and diverse colors.
Thou didst eat nothing but simnels, honey and oil: marvelous goodly wast thou and beautiful, yee even a very Queen wast thou. In so much, that thy beauty was spoken of among the Heathen, for thou was excellent in my beauty, which I put upon thee sayeth the Lord God. But thou hast put confidence in thine own beauty, and played the harlot, when thou haddest gotten thee a name. Thou hast committed whoredom, with all that went by thee, and hast fulfilled their desires: yee thou hast taken thy garments of diverse colors, and decked thine altars therewith, where upon thou mightest fulfill thine whoredom, of such a fashion, as never was done, nor shall be. The goodly ornaments and Jewels which I gave thee of mine own gold and silver, hast thou taken, and made thee mens images thereof, and committed whoredom withal.
Thy garments of diverse colors hast thou taken, and decked them therewith: mine oil and incense hast thou set before them. My meat which I gave thee, as fimnels, oil and honey: ( to feed thee withal ) that hast thou set before them, for a sweet savior. And this also came to pass, sayeth the Lord God: Thou hast taken thine own sons and daughters, whom thou hast begotten unto me: and these hast thou offered up to them, to be their meat. Is this but a small whoredom of thine ( thinkest thou ) that thou slayest my children, and givest them over, to be burnt unto them? And yet in all thy abominations and whoredom, thou hast not remembered the days of thy youth, how naked and bare thou wast at that time and trodden down in thine own blood. After all these thy wickednesses ( woe, woe unto thee, sayeth the Lord ) thou hast builded up thy*stewes and *brodel houses in every place: yee at the head of every street thou hast *builded an alter. Thou hast made thy beauty to be abhorred, thou hast layed out thy legs to every one that came by, and multiplied thy whoredoms. Thou hast committed fornication with the Egyptians thy neighbors, which had much flesh: and thus hast thou used thine whoredoms, to anger me.
Behold, I will stretched out my hand over thee, and minished thy store of food, and deliver thee over into the wiles of the Philistines thine enemies, which are ashamed of thy abominable way. Thou hast played the whore also with the Assirians, which might not satisfy thee: Yee, thou hast played the harlot, and not had enough. Thus hast thou committed thy fornication from the land of Canaan unto the Caldees, and yet thy lust not satisfied. Now should I circumcise thine heart ( saith the Lord God) seeing thou doest all these things, thou precious whore: building thy stewes at the head of street, and thy brodel houses in all places? Thou hast not been as another whore, that maketh boast of her winning but as a wife that breaketh wedlock, and taketh other instead of her husband. Gifts are given to all other whores, but thou givest rewards unto all thy lovers: and offerest them gifts, to come unto thee out of all places, and to committed fornication with thee. It is come to pass with thee in thy whoredoms contrary to the use of other women: yee there hath no such fornication been committed after thee, seeing that thou *proffer gifts unto other, and no regard is given thee: this is a contrary thing.
Therefore hear the word of the Lord, O thou harlot: thus saith the Lord God: for so much as thou has spent thy money, and discovered thy shame, through the whoredom of thy lovers, and with all the Idols of thy abominations in the blood of thy children, whom thou has given them: Behold therefore, I will gather together all thy lovers, unto whom thou has made thyself common: yee and all them that thou savourest, and everyone that thou hatest: and will discover thy shame before them, that they all may see thy filthiness.
Moreover, I will judge thee as a breaker of wedlock and a murderer, and recompense thee thine own blood in wrath and jealousy. I will give thee over to their power, that shall break down thy stewes, and destroy thy brodel houses: they shall strip thee out of thy clothes, all thy fair and beautiful jewels shall they take from thee, and so let the sit naked and bare: yee they shall bring the common people upon thee, which shall stone thee, and slay thee down with their swords. They shall burn up thy houses, and punish thee in the sight of many women. Thus will I make thy whoredom to cease, so that thou shalt give out no more rewards.
Should I make my wrath to be still, take my jealousy from thee, be content, and no more to be displeased? Seeing thou remembered not the days of thy youth, but provoked me to wrath in all these things? Behold therefore, I will bring thy own ways upon thine head, saith the Lord God: how be it, I never did unto thee, according to thy wickedness and all thy abominations. Behold, all they that use common proverbs, shall use this proverb also against thee: such a mother, such a daughter.
Thou art even thy mothers own daughter, that hath cast off her husband and her children: Yee thou art the sister of thy sisters, which forsook their husbands and their children. Your mother is an Cethite, and your father an Amorite. Thine eldest sister is Samaria, she and her daughters that dwell upon thy left hand.
But thy youngest sister that dwelleth on thy right hand, is Sodoma and her daughters. Yet hast thou not walked after their ways, nor done after their abominations: but in all thy ways thou hast been more corrupt than they. As truly as I live, saith the Lord God, Sodoma thy sister with her daughters hath not done so evil, as thou and thy daughters. Behold, the sins of thy sister Sodoma, were these: Pride, fullness of meat, and abundance and Idleness: these things had she and in her daughters. Besides that they reached not their hand to the poor and needy, but were proud and did abominable things before me: therefore I took them away, when I seen it. Neither hath Samaria done half of thy sins, yee thou hast exceeded them in wickedness: In so much that in comparison of all the abominations which thou hast done, thou has made thy sisters good women.
As for their captivity, namely the captivity of Sodoma and her daughters: the captivity of Samaria and her daughters: I will bring them again, so will I also bring again thy captive among them: that thou mayest take thine own confusion upon thee, and be ashamed of all that thou hast done, and to comfort them. Thus thy sisters ( namely ) Sodoma and her daughters: Samaria and her daughters with thy self and thy daughters, shall be brought again to your old estate. When thou was in thy pride, and before thy wickedness came to light: thou wouldest not hear speak of thy sister Sodoma, until the time that the Syrians with all their towns, and the Philistines, with all that live round about them, brought thee to shame and confusion: that thou mightest bare thine own filthiness and abomination, saith the Lord.
For thus saith the Lord God: I should ( by right ) deal with thee as thou hast done. Thou hast despised the oath and broken the covenant. Nevertheless, I will remember the covenant that I made with thee in thy youth, in so much that it shall be an everlasting covenant: so that thou also remember thy ways, and be ashamed of them: then shalt thou receive of me thy elder and younger sisters, whom I will make thy daughters, and that besides thy covenant. And so I will renew my covenant with thee, that thou mayest know that I am the Lord: That thou mayest think upon it, be ashamed, and excuse thine own confusion no more: when I have forgiven thee, all that thou hast done, saith the Lord God

THE REVELATION OF ST JOHN Chpt 17
And there came one of the seven Angels, which had the seven vials: and talked with me, saying unto me: come I will show thee the judgement of the great whore that sitteth upon many waters, with whom have committed fornication the kings of the earth, so that the inhabiters of the earth, are drunken with the wine of her fornication. And he carried me away into the wilderness in the spirit. And I saw a woman sit upon a rose colored beast full of names of blasphemy which had ten horns. And the woman was arrayed in purple and rose colour and decked with gold, precious stone, and pearls, and had a cup of gold in her hand, full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication. And in her forehead was a name written, a mystery, great Babylon the mother of whoredom and abominations of the earth. And I saw the wife drunken with the blood of saints, and with the blood of the witnesses of *Jesu. And when I saw her: I wondered with great marvel.
And the Angel said unto me: wherefore marvellest thou? I will show thee the mystery of the woman, and of the beast that beareth her, which hath seven heads, and ten horns. The beast that thou seest, was, and is not, and shall ascend out of the bottomless pit, and shall go into perdition, and they that dwell on the earth shall wonder (whose names are not written in the book of life from the beginning of the world) when they behold the beast that was and is not. And here is a mind that hath wisdom.
The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth: they are also seven kings. Five are fallen, and one is, and another is not yet come. When he cometh he must continue a space. And the beast that was, and is not, is even the eighth, and is one of the seven, and shall go into destruction. And the ten horns which thou seest, are ten kings, which have received no kingdom, but shall receive power as kings at one hour with the beast. These have one mind, and shall give their power and strength unto the beast. These shall fight with the lamb, and the lamb shall overcome them: For he is Lord of lords, and king of kings and they that are on his side, are called, and chosen and faithful.
And he said unto me: the waters which thou sawest, where the whore sitteth, are people, and folk, and nations, and tongues. And the ten horns, which thou sawest upon the beast, are they that shall hate the whore, and shall make her desolate, and naked, and shall eat her flesh, and burn her with fire. For God hath put in their hearts, to fulfil his will, and to do with one consent, for to give her kingdom unto the beast, until the words of God be fulfilled. And the woman which thou sawest, is that great city, which reigneth over the kings of the earth
*Jesu: Hebrew for Jesus
THE SECOND TO THE CORINTHIANS Chpt 11
If the truth of Christ be in me, this rejoicing shall not be taken from me in the regions of Achaia. Wherefore? Because I love you not? God knoweth. Nevertheless what I do, that will I do, to cut away occasion from them which desire occasion, that they might be found like unto us in that wherein they rejoice. For these false apostles are deceitful workers, and fashion them selves like unto the Apostles of Christ. And no marvel, for Satan himself is changed into the fashion of an angel of light. Therefore it is no great thing, though his ministers fashion them selves as though they were the ministers of righteousness: whose end shall be according to their deeds.
THE REVELATION OF ST JOHN Chpt 3
And unto the messenger of the congregation which is in Laodicia, write: This saith (Amen) the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creatures of God. I know thy works that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou were cold or hot. So then because thou art between both, and neither cold nor hot, I will spew thee out of my mouth: because thou sayst thou art rich and increased with goods, and hast need of nothing, and knowest not how thou art: wretched and miserable, poor, blind, and naked. I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayst be rich: and white raiment, that thou mayst be clothed, that thy filthy nakedness do not appear: and anoint thine eyes with eye salve, that thou mayst see.
As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten. Be fervent therefore and repent. Behold I stand at the door and knock. If any man hear my voice and open the door, I will come in unto him and will sup with him, and he with me. To him that overcometh, will I grant to sit with me in my seat, even as I over came and have sitten with my father, in his seat. Let him that hath ears, hear what the spirit saith unto the congregations
