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.

     Behold in a nightmare of the dark season ...of the times and time ..of the season of man ...see son of man ...

     and i was taken and shown ...

     and as walking in the land of the eagle ...

     and coming over an ...high hill ...of the land ...

     and i was astounded ...

     and as far as the eye could see ...was the land covered with ashes ...

     and i looked and was shown two children ...

     and they were standing side by side ...

     and their eyes were wide open ...

     even as if they were in stunned ... 

     and they were covered in ashes head to foot ...

     and thick of ashes upon their head and shoulders ...

     

     and scripture came back to remembrance ...

 

SECOND BOOK OF MOSES Chpt 24

And the Lord said unto Moses: come up to me in to the hill and be there, and I will give thee tables of stone and a law and commandments, which I have written to teach them. Then Moses rose up and his minister Josua, and Moses went up into the hill of God, and said unto the elders: tarry ye here until we come again unto you: And behold here is Aaron and Hur with you. If any man have any matters to do, let him come to them. When Moses was come up into the mount, a cloud covered the hill, and the glory of the Lord abode upon mount Sinai, and the cloud covered it six days. And the seventh day he called unto Moses out of the cloud. And the fashion of the glory of the Lord was like consuming fire on the top of the hill in the sight of the children of Israel. And Moses went into the mountain. And Moses was in the mount forty days and forty nights

FIFTH BOOK OF MOSES Chpt 4

  For the Lord took you and brought you out of the iron furnace of Egypt, to be unto him a people of inheritance, as it is come to pass this day. Furthermore, the Lord was angry with me for your sakes and sware, that I should not go over Jordan and that I should not go unto that good land, which the Lord thy God giveth thee to inheritance. For I must die in this land, and shall not go over Jordan: But ye shall go over and conquer that good land.
      Take heed unto yourselves therefore, that ye forget not the appointment of the Lord your God which he made with you, and that ye make you no graven image of whatsoever it be that the Lord thy God hath forbidden thee. For the Lord thy God is a consuming fire, and a jealous God.

FIFTH BOOK OF MOSES Chpt 9

   Hear Israel, thou goest over Jordan this day, to go and conquer nations greater and mightier than thyself and cities great and walled up to heaven, and people great and tall, even the children of the Enakims, which thou knowest and of whom thou hast heard say who is able to stand before the children of Enack? But understand this day that the Lord thy God which goeth over before thee a consuming fire, he shall destroy them and he shall subdue them before thee. And thou shalt cast them out, and bring them to nought quickly as the Lord hath said unto thee.
      Speak not in thine heart, after that the Lord thy God hath cast them out before thee saying: for my righteousness the Lord hath brought me into possess this land. Nay, but for the wickedness of these nations the Lord doth cast them out before thee. It is not for thy righteousness sake and right heart that thou goest to possess their land: But partly for the wickedness of these nations, the Lord thy God doth cast them out before thee, and partly to perform that which the Lord thy God sware unto thy fathers, Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.
       Understand therefore that it is not for thy righteousness sake, that the Lord thy God doth give thee this good land to possess it, for thou art a stiffnecked people. Remember and forget not how thou provokedest the Lord thy God in the wilderness: for since the day that thou camest out of the land of Egypt until ye came unto this place, ye have rebelled against the Lord. Also in Horeb ye angered the Lord so that the Lord was wroth with you, even to have destroyed you, after that I was gone up into the mount, to fetch the tables of stone, the tables of appointment which the Lord made with you. And I abode in the hill forty days and forty nights and neither ate bread nor drank water. And the Lord delivered me two tables of stone written with the finger of God, and in them was according to all the words which the Lord said unto you in the mount out of the fire in the day when the people were gathered together.

SECOND BOOK OF SAMUEL Chpt 22

And David spake the words of this song unto the Lord, what time the Lord had delivered him out of the hands of all his enemies, and out of the hands of Saul.
      And he said: The Lord is my *rock, my castle and my deliverer. God is my strength, and in him will I trust: my shield and the horn that defendeth me: mine high hold and refuge: O' my Saviour, save me from wrong.
       I will praise and call on the Lord, and so shall be saved from mine enemies. For the waves of death have closed me about, and the floods of Belial have feared me. The cords of hell have compassed me about, and the snares of death have overtaken me. In my tribulation I called to the Lord, and cried to my God. And he heard my voice out of his temple, and my cry entered into his ears. And the earth trembled and quake, and the foundations of heaven moved and shook, because he was angry.
      Smoke went up out of his nostrils, and consuming fire out of his mouth, that coals were kindled of him. And he bowed heaven and came down, and darkness underneath his feet. And he rode upon Cherub and flew: and appeared upon the wings of the wind. And he made darkness a tabernacle round about him, with water gathered together in thick clouds. Of the brightness, that was before him, coals were set on fire.
      The Lord thundered from heaven, and the most high put out his voice. And he shot arrows and scattered them, and hurled lightning and turmoiled them. And the bottom of the sea appeared, and the foundations of the world were seen, by the reason of the rebuking of the Lord, and through the blasting of the breath of his nostrils. He sent from on high and fetched me, and plucked me out of mighty waters.
      He delivered me from my mighty enemy, and from them that hated me and were too strong for me. When they had compassed me in the day of my tribulation, the Lord stayed me up. And he brought me out into roomth, and delivered me, because he delighted in me.
      The Lord rewarded me according to my righteousness, and according to the pureness of my hands he dealt with me. For I kept the ways of the Lord, and did no wickedness forsaking my God. But I had all his laws in my sight, and I turned my face from none of his ordinances. But was pure unto him ward, and kept myself from wickedness.
      And the Lord did to me again, according to my righteousness, and after my pureness that I had in his sight. With the holy thou shalt be holy, and with the man that is uncorrupt, thou shalt be uncorrupt. With the pure thou shalt be pure, and with the froward thou shalt be froward also. And the people that are in adversity, thou shalt help. And on the proud shalt thou cast thine eyes. Thou art my light, O' Lord, and the Lord shall light my darkness.
      With thy help I will run through an Host of men, and by the aid of my God will spring over a wall. The way of God is undefiled, and the word of the Lord fined as gold, and he a shield to all that trust in him.
      Who is a God save the Lord, and who mighty save our God? God is my strength in war, and riddeth the way clear before me. And maketh my feet as swift as an hinds, and setteth me fast upon my high hold.

THE PSALMS Chpt 18

 I will love thee, ( O' Lord ) my strength.
      The Lord is my *succor, my refuge, my Savior: my God, my helper, in whom I will trust: my buckler, the horn of my health, and my protection.
      I will praise the Lord, and call upon him, so shall I be save from mine enemies.
      The sorrows of death compassed me, and the brooks of ungodliness made me afraid.
      The pains of hell came about me, the snares of death took hold upon me.
      Yet in my trouble I called upon the Lord, and complained unto my God. So he heard my voice out of his holy temple, and my complaint came before him, yee even into his ears.
      Then the earth trembled and quaked, the very foundations of the hills shook and were removed, because he was wroth.
       There went a smoke out of his nostrils, and a consuming fire out of his mouth, so that coals were kindled at it.
       He bowed the heavens, and came down, and it was dark was under his feet.
       He rode upon the Cherub, and did fly: he came flying with the wings of the wind.
       He made darkness his pavilion round about him, with dark waters and thick clouds to cover him.
      At the brightness of his presence the clouds removed, with hail stones and coals of fire.
The Lord also thundered out of the heaven, and the height gave his thunder with hail stones and coals of fire.
      He sent out his arrows and scattered them, he cast sore lightnings, and destroyed them.
      The springs of waters were seen, and the foundations of the round world were discovered at thy chiding (O' Lord) at the blasting and breath of thy displeasures.
      He sent from the height to fetch me, and took me out of great waters.
      He delivered me from my strong enemies, and from my foes which were too mighty for me.
They prevented me in the time of my trouble, but the Lord was my defense.
He brought me forth also into liberty: and delivered me, because he had a favor unto me.
      The Lord shall reward me after my righteous dealing, and according to the cleanness of my hands shall he recompensed me.
      For I have kept the ways of the Lord: and have not behaved myself wickedly against my God.
      I have an eye unto all his laws, and cast not out his commandments from me.
       Uncorrupt will I be before him, and will I *eschue my own wickedness.
      Therefore shall the Lord reward me after my righteous dealing, and according to the cleanness of my hands in his eyesight.
       With the holy thou shalt be holy, and with the innocent thou shalt be innocent.
       With the clean thou shalt be clean, and with the *froward thou shalt be froward.
       For thou shalt save the poor oppressed, and bring down the high looks of the proud.
      Thou lightest my candle, O' Lord my God: thou makest my darkness to be light.
       For in thee I can discomfort an host of men: yee in my God I can leap over the wall.
       The way of God is a perfect way: the words of the Lord are tried in fire: he is a shield of defense, for all them that trust in him.
       For who is God, but the Lord? Or, who hath any strength, but our God?
       It is God that girdeth me with strength, and made my way uncorrupt.
       He hath made my feet like hertes feet, and set me up on high.
       He teacheth my hands to fight, and maketh mine arms to break even a bow of steel.
       Thou hast given me the defense of thy health, thy right hand upholdeth me, and thy loving correction maketh me great.
       Thou hast made room enough under me for to go, that my foot steps should not slide.
      I will follow upon mine enemies, and take them: I will not turn till they be discomforted.
       I will smite them, they shall not be able to stand, but fall under my feet.
      Thou hast girded me with strength unto the battle, thou hast thrown them all down under me, that rose up against me.
      Thou hast made mine enemies to turn their backs upon me, thou hast destroyed them that hate me.
      They cried, but there was none to help them: yee even unto the Lord, but he heard them not.
      I will beat them small as the dust clay in the wind, I will cast them out as clay in the streets.
      Thou shalt deliver me from the strivings of the people, thou shalt make me the head of the Heathen.
      As soon as they hear of me, they shall obey me, but the strange children disassemble with me.
The strange children are waxen old, and go halting out of their paths.
      The Lord liveth: and blessed be my helper, praise be the God of my health.
      Even the God which seeth that I be avenged, and subdueth the people unto me.
      It is he that delivereth me from my cruel enemies: thou shalt lift me up from them that rise against me, thou shalt rid me from the wicked man.
      For this cause I will give thanks unto thee ( O' Lord ) among the gentiles, and sing praises unto thy name.
Great prosperity giveth he unto his king, and showeth loving kindness unto David his anointed, yee and to his seed for evermore

THE PSALMS Chpt 50


      The Lord even the mighty God hath spoken, and called the world from the rising of the *son unto the going down of the same. Out of Sion appeareth the glorious beauty of God. Our God shall come, and not keep silence: there goeth before him a consuming fire, and a mighty tempest round about him.
      He shall call the heavens from above, and the earth, that he may judge his people.
      Gather my saints together unto me, those that set more by the covenant then by sacrifice. And the heavens shall declare his righteousness, for God is judge himself. Selah.
      
      Hear, O my people: let me speak, let me testify among you, O Israel: I am God, even thy God.
      I reprove thee not because of thy sacrifice, thy burntofferings are always before me.
      I will take no bullocks out of thy house, nor he goats out of thy folds.
      For all the beasts of the field are mine, and thousands of cattle upon the hills.

      I know all the fowls upon the mountains, and the wild beasts of the field are in my sight. If I be hungry, I will not tell thee: for the whole world is mine, and all that therin is.
      Thinkest thou, that I will eat the flesh of oxen, or drink the blood of goats?
      Offer unto God praise and thanksgiving, and pay thy *vows unto the most highest.            
      And call upon me in the time of trouble, so will I hear thee,
      and thou shalt thank me.      
      But unto the ungodly saith God: Why doest preach my laws, and takest my covenant in thy mouth? Where as thou hatest to be reformed, and cast my words behind thee. If thou seest a thief, thou runnest with him, and art partaker with the *advouters.
       Thou lettest thy mouth speak wickedness, and thy tongue paineth deceit. Thou sittest and speakest against thy brother, yee and scandalize thine own mothers son.
      This thou doest, while I hold my tongue: and thinkest me to be even such one as thyself: but I will reprove thee, and set myself against thee.
      O consider this, ye that forget God: lest I pluck you away, and there be none to deliver you.
      Whoso offereth me thanks and praise, he honoreth me: and this is the way, whereby I will show him the saving health of God

ESAI or ISAIAH Chpt 29

 Woe be unto thee O Ariel, thou city that David won. Take yet some years, and let some feasts pass over: then shall Ariel be besieged, so that she shall be heavy and sorrowful, and shall be unto me even as a lion. For I will lay siege to thee round about, and keep thee in with towers, and grave up dikes against thee. And thou shalt be brought low, and speak out of the earth, and thy words shall go humbly out of the ground. Thy voice shall come out of the earth, like the voice of a witch, and thy talking shall groan out of the mire. For the multitude of thine enemies shall be like meal dust. And the number of Tyrants shall be as the dust that the wind taketh away suddenly. Thou shalt be visited of the Lord of Hosts with thunder, earthquake, and with a great crack, with the whistle wind, tempest, and the flame of a consuming fire. But now the multitude of all the people, that went out against Ariel: the whole host, the strongholds, and siege: is like a dream which appeareth at night. It is like when an hungry man dreameth that he is eating, and when he awaketh, he hath nothing: like as when a thirsty man dreameth that he is drinking, and when he awaketh he is faint, and his soul unpatient.
      So is the multitude of all the people that muster themselves against the hill of Sion. But ye shall be at your wits end, ye shall be abashed: ye shall stagger, and reel to and fro.
      Ye shall be drunken, but not of wine. Ye shall fall, but not through drunkenness: For the Lord shall give you an hard sleeping spirit, and hold down your eyes: namely your Prophets and heads which should see, them shall he cover. And all visions shall be unto you, as the words that stand in a sealed letter, when one offereth it to a man that is learned, and sayeth: read us this letter. Then he answereth: I can not read it, for it is shut. But if it be given to one that is not learned, or say unto him: read this letter: Then sayeth he I can not read.
      Therefore thus sayeth the Lord: For so much as this people draweth near me with their mouth, and praiseth me highly with their lips, where as their heart nevertheless is far from me, and the fear which they owe unto me, that turn they to mens laws and doctrines, therefore will I also show unto this people a marvelous, terrible, and great thing ( Namely this: ) I will destroy the wisdom of their wise, and the understanding of their learned men shall perish. Woe be unto them that seek so deep, to hide their imagination before the Lord, which rehearse their counsels in darkness, and say: who seeth us, or who knoweth us? Which imagination of yours is even as when the potters clay taketh advisement, as though the work might say to the workmaster : make me not, or as when an earthen vessel sayeth of the potter: he understandeth not. See ye not that it is hard by, that Libanus shall be turned in to Charmel, and that Charmel shall be taken as wood? Then shall the deaf man understand the words of the book, and the eyes of the blind shall see without any cloud or darkness. The oppressed shall hold a merry feast in the Lord, and the poor shall rejoice in the holy one of Israel.
      Then shall the furious people cease, and the mockers shall be put away, and all they that do wrong shall be plucked out, such as labor to draw men unto sin: and that deceive him, which reproveth them in the gate, and such as turn good persons to vanity. And therefore the Lord ( even the defender of Abraham ) sayeth thus unto the house of Jacob: Now shall not Jacob be ashamed, nor his face confounded, when he seeth among his children ( whom my hands have made ) such as hallow my name among them: that they may sanctify the holy one of Jacob, and fear the God of Israel. and that they which afore time were of an erroneous spirit, have now understanding, and that such as before could not speak, are now learned in my law.

ESAI or ISAIAH Chpt 30

 In that day shall the Lord bind up the bruised sores of his people, and heal their wounds. Behold, the glory of the Lord shall come from far, his face shall burn, that no man shall be able to abide it, his lips shall wag for very indignation, and his tongue shall be as a consuming fire. His breath like a vehement flood of water, which goeth up to the throat. That he may take away the people, which have turned themselves to vanity, and the bridle of error, that lieth in other folks *chawes.
      But ye shall sing, as the use is in the night of the holy *solempnite. Ye shall rejoice from your heart, as they that come with the pipe, when they go up to the mount of the Lord, unto the rock of Israel. The Lord also shall set up the power of his voice, and declare his terrible arm, with his angry countenance, yee and the flame of the consuming fire, with earthquake, tempest of wind, and hailstones. Then shall the Assyrians fear also because of the voice of the Lord, which shall smite him with the rod. And the same rod which the Lord will send upon him, shall move the whole foundation: with trumpet, with noise of war and battle to destroy. For he hath prepared the fire of pain since the beginning, yee even for Kings also. This hath he made deep and wide, the nourishing thereof is fire and wood innumerable, which the breath of the Lord kindleth, as it were a match of brimstone.

ESAI or ISAIAH Chpt 33

 Therefore woe be unto thee ( O robber ) shalt thou not be robbed also? and unto thee that layest wait, as who say there should no wait be laid for thee: Woe unto thee which doest hurt, even so shall thou be hurt also. And as thou layest wait, so shall wait be laid for thee also.
      Lord be merciful unto us, we wait for thee. *Thine arm is at a point to visit us, but be thou our health in time of trouble. Grant that the people may flee at the anger of thy voice, and that at thine upstanding of the Gentiles may be scattered abroad, and that their people may be gathered, as the grasshoppers are commonly gathered together in a pit. Stand up Lord, thou that dwelleth on high: Let Sion be filled with equity and righteousness. Let truth and faithfulness be in her time: power, health, wisdom, knowledge and the fear of God are her treasure. Behold, their angels cry without, the messengers of peace weep bitterly. The streets are waste, there walketh no man therin, the appointment is broken, the cities are dispised, they are not regarded, the desolate earth is in heaviness. Libanus taketh it but for a sport, that it is hewn down: Saron is like a wilderness: and Basan and Carmel are turned upside down. *And therefore saith the Lord. I will up, now will I get up, now will I arise. Ye shall conceive stubble, and bare straw, and your spirit shall be the fire, that it may consume you: and the people shall be burnt like lime, and as thorns burn that are hewn off, and cast in the fire.
      Now hearken to, ye that are far off of how I do with them, and consider my glory, ye that be at hand. The sinners at Sion are afraid and sudden fearfulness is come upon the hypocrites. What is he among us ( say they ) that will dwell by that consuming fire? Which of us may abide that everlasting heat? He that leadeth a godly life ( say I ) and speaketh the truth: He that abhoreth to do violence and deceit: he that keepeth his hand that toucheth no reward: which stoppeth his ears, that he hear no counsel against the innocent: which holdeth down his eyes, that he see none evil. He it is, that shall dwell on high whose saverguard shall be in the true rock, to him shall be given the right true meat and drink. His eyes shall see the king in his glory: and in the wide world, and his heart shall delight in the fear of God. What shall then become of the scribe? of the Senator? what of him that teacheth children? There shalt thou not see a people of a strange tongue to have so diffused a language, that it may not be understood: neither so strange a speach but it shall be perceived.
       There shall Sion be seen, the head city of our solemn feasts. There shall thine eyes see Jerusalem that glorious habitation: the tabernacle that never shall remove, whose nails shall never be taken out world without end, whose *coardes *everychone shall never corrupt: for the glorious Majesty of the Lord shall there be present among us. In that place, where fair broad rivers and streams are shall neither Galley row, ner great ship sail. For the Lord shall be our captain, the Lord shall be our law giver. The Lord shall be our king, and he himself shall be our Saviour. There are the *coards so layed abroad, that they can not be better: The mast set up of such a fashion, that no banner nor sail hangeth theron: but there is dealed great spoil, yee lame men run after the prey, There lieth no man that sayeth: I am sick, but all evil is taken away from the people, that dwell there

Of this last sentence 2nd PP compare to kjv and or other bibles of man. RN
*coardes (courses) *everychone ( every each one ?) .*coards (courses) possible reference to a ship; in it is the lowest sail. RN
*Thine arm is at a point to visit us, but thou our health in time of trouble. That is his power to be shown plainly.

Joel Chpt 2

  Blow out the trumpet in Sion, and cry upon my holy hill, that all such as dwell in the land, may tremble at it: for the day of the Lord cometh, and is hard at hand: a dark day, a cloudy day, yee and a stormy day, like as the morning spreadeth out upon the hills: Namely, a great and mighty people: such as have not been since the beginning, neither shall be after them for evermore. Before him shall be a consuming fire, and behind him a burning flame. The land shall be as a garden of pleasure before him, but behind him shall be a very waste wilderness, and there is no man, that shall escape him. They are to look upon like *barded horses, and run like horse men. They skipped up upon the hills, as it were the sound of chariots: as the flame of fire that consumeth the straw, and as a mighty people ready to the battle.
      The folk shall be afraid of him, all faces shall be as black as the pot. These shall run like giants, and leap over the walls like men of war. Every man in his going will keep his array, and not go out of his Path. There shall not one drive another, but each shall keep his own way. They shall break in at the windows, and not be hurt: They shall come in to the city, and run upon the walls: They shall climb up upon the houses, and slip in at the windows like a thief. The earth shall quake before him, yee the heavens shall be moved: The Sun and Moon shall be darkened, and the stars shall withdraw their shine. The Lord shall show his voice before his host, for his host is great, strong and mighty to fulfill his commandment. This is that great and marvelous fearful day of the Lord: And who is able to abide it.
      Now therefore sayeth the Lord: Turn you unto me with all your hearts, with fasting, weeping and mourning, rent your hearts, and not your clothes. Turn you unto the Lord your God, for he is gracious and merciful, long suffering and of great compassion: and ready to pardon wickedness. Then ( no doubt ) he also shall turn, and forgive: and after his chastening, he shall let your increase remain, for meat and drink offerings unto the Lord your God: Blow out with the trumpet in Sion, proclaim a fasting, call the congregation, and gather the people together: warn the congregation, gather the elders, bring the children and sucklings together. Let the bridegroom go forth of his chamber, and the bride out of her closet. Let the priests serve the Lord between the porch and the alter, weeping and saying: be favorable O' Lord, be favorable unto thy people: let not thy heritage be brought to such confusion, lest the Heathen be Lords thereof. Wherefore should they say among the Heathen: where is now their God?
      Then shall the Lord be jealous over his land, and spare his people: yee the Lord shall answer, and say unto his people: Behold, I will send you corn, wine, and oil, so that ye shall have plenty of them: And I will no more give you over to be a reproof among the Heathen. Again as for him of the North, I shall drive him far from you: and shoot him out in to a dry and waste land, his face toward the east sea, and his hinder parts toward the upmost sea. The stink of him shall go up, and his filthy corruption shall fall upon himself, because he hath dealt so proudly. Fear not ( O land ) but be glad and rejoice, for the Lord will do great things. Be not ye afraid neither ( O ye beasts of the field ) for the pastures shall be green and the trees shall bear their fruit: the fig trees and vineyards shall give their increase.
      Be glad then ( O ye children of Sion ) and rejoice in the Lord your God, for he hath given you a teacher of righteousness: and he it is that shall send you down showers of rain, early and late in the first month: so that the gardeners shall be full of corn, and the priests plenteous in wine and oil. And as for the years that the grasshopper, locust, blasting, and caterpillar ( my great host, which I sent among you) have eaten up, I shall restore them to you again: so that ye shall have enough to eat, and be satisfied: and praise the name of the Lord your God, that so marvelously hath dealt with you.
      And my people shall never be confounded anymore. Ye shall well know, that I am in the midst of Israel, and that I am your God: yee and that there is none other, and my people shall no more be brought to confusion.
      After this, I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and daughters shall prophesy: your old men shall dream dreams , and your young men shall see visions in those days I will pour out my spirit upon servants and maidens. I will show wonders in the heavens above, and tokens in the earth beneath: blood and fire, and the vapor of smoke. The sun shall be turned to darkness, and the moon into blood: before the great and notable day of the Lord come. And the time shall come: that whosoever calleth upon the name of the Lord, shall be saved. For upon the mount Sion and at Jerusalem, there shall be a salvation, like as the Lord hath promised: yee and among the other remnant, whom the Lord shall call

TO THE HEBREWS Chpt 12

 

 Wherefore let us also (seeing that we are compassed with so great a multitude of witnesses) lay away all that presseth down, and the sin that hangeth on, and let us run with patience unto the battle that is set before us, looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith, which for the joy that was set before him, abode the cross, and despised the shame, and is set down on the right hand of the throne of God. Consider therefore how that he endured such speaking against him of sinners, lest ye should be wearied and faint in your minds. For ye have not yet resisted unto blood shedding, striving against sin. And ye have forgotten the consolation, which speaketh unto you, as unto children: My son despise not the chastening of the Lord, neither faint when thou art rebuked of him: For whom the Lord loveth, him he chasteneth: yee, and he scourgeth every son that he receiveth.
      If ye endure chastening, God offereth himself unto you as unto sons. What son is that whom the father chasteneth not? If ye be not under correction (where of all are partakers) then are ye bastards and not sons. Moreover seeing we had fathers of our flesh which corrected us, and we gave them reverence: should we not much rather be in subjection unto the father of spiritual gifts that we might live? And they verily for a few days, nurtured us after their own pleasure: but he learneth us unto that which is profitable, that we might receive of his holiness. No manner chastising for the present time seemeth to be joyous, but grievous: nevertheless afterward, it bringeth the quiet fruit of righteousness, unto them which are therin exercised.
      Stretch forth therefore again the hands which were let down, and the weak knees, and see that ye have straight steps unto your feet, lest any halting turn out of the way: yee let it rather be healed. Embrace peace with all men and holiness: without the which, no man shall see the Lord. And look to, that no man be destitute of the grace of God, and that no root of bitterness spring up and trouble, and thereby many be defiled: and that there be no fornicator, or unclean person, as Esau, which for one breakfast sold his birthright. Ye know how that afterward when he would have inherited the blessing, he was put by, and he found no means to come thereby again: no though he desired it with tears.
      For ye are not come unto the mount that can be touched, and unto burning fire nor yet to mist and darkness and tempest of weather, neither unto the sound of a trumpet and the voice of words: which voice they that heard it, wished away: that the communication should not be spoken to them. For they were not able to abide that which was spoken. If a beast had touched the mountain, it must have been stoned, or thrust through with a dart: even so terrible was the sight which appeared. Moses said, I fear and quake. But ye are come unto the mount Sion, and to the city of the living God, the celestial Jerusalem: and to an innumerable sight of angels, and unto the congregation of the first born sons, which are written in heaven, and to God the judge of all, and to the spirits of just and perfect men and to Jesus the mediator of the new testament, and to the sprinkling of blood that speaketh better then the blood of Abel.
      See that ye despise not him that speaketh. For if they escaped not which refused him that spake on earth: much more shall we not escape, if we turn away from him that speaketh from heaven: whose voice then shook the earth, and now declareth saying: yet once more will I shake not the earth only, but also heaven. No doubt the same that he sayeth, yet once more, signifieth the removing away of those things which are shaken, as of things which have ended their course: that the things which are not shaken, may remain. Wherefore if we receive a kingdom which is not moved we have grace, whereby we may serve God and please him with reverence and godly fear. For our God is a consuming fire
