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 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)
THE PSALMS Chpt 119
Mem mem (mėm)n.1. The 13th letter of the Hebrew alphabet.
O' what love have I unto thy law? all the day long is *my talking of it.
Thou through thy commandment hast made me wiser than mine enemies, for it is ever by me. Yee I am wiser than the aged, for I keep thy commandments.
I refrain my feet from every evil way, that I might keep thy words.
I shrink not from thy judgments, for thou teachest me.
O' how sweet are thy words **unto my throat.
Yee, more than honey to my mouth.
Through thy commandments I get understanding, therefore I hate all false ways.
THE BOOK OF WISDOM Chpt 5
Then shall the righteous stand in great steadfastness against such as have dealt extremely with them, and taken away their labors. When they see it, they shall be vexed with horrible fear, and shall wonder at the hastiness of the sudden health: groaning for the very distress of the mind, and shall say within themselves, having inward sorrow, and mourning for very anguish of mind:
These are they, whom we sometime had in derision, and jested upon. We fools thought their life was very madness, and their end to be without honour. But lo, how they are counted among the children of God, and their portion is among the saints. Therefore have we erred from the way of truth, the light of righteousness hath not shined unto us, and the sun of understanding rose not up upon us. We have wearied ourselves in the way of wickedness and destruction. Tedious ways have we gone: but as for the way of the Lord, we have not known it.
What good hath our pride done unto us? Or, what profit hath the pomp of riches brought us? All those things are passed away like a shadow, and as a messenger running before: As a ship that passeth over the waves of the water, which when it is gone by, the trace thereof cannot be found, neither the path of it in the floods. Or as a bird that flyeth through the air, and no man can see any token where she is flown, but only heareth the noise of her wings, beating the light wind, parting the air through the vehemence of her going, and flyeth on shaking her wings, where as afterward no token of her way can be found. Or like as when an arrow is shot at a mark, it parteth the air, which immediately cometh together again, so that a no man can know where it went through. Even so we in like manner, as soon as we were born, began immediately to draw to our end, and have showed no token of virtue, but are consumed in our own wickedness.
Such words shall they that have sinned speak in hell: For the hope of the ungodly is like a dry thistle flower ( or dust ) that is blown away with the wind: like as thin scum that is scattered abroad with the storm: like as the smoke which is dispersed here and there with the wind, and as the remembrance of a stranger that tarryeth for a day, and then departeth. But the righteous shall live for evermore: their reward also is with the Lord: and their remembrance with the Highest. Therefore shall they receive a glorious Kingdom and a beautiful crown of the Lords hand: for with his right hand shall he cover them, and with his own arm shall he cover them, and with his own arm shall he defend them. His jealousy also shall take away the harness, and he shall weapon the creature to be avenged of the enemies. He shall put unrighteousness as a breastplate, and take sure judgment instead of an helmet. The invincible shield of equity shall he take, his cruel wrath shall he sharpen for a spear, and the whole compass of the world shall fight with him against the unwise.
Then shall the thunder bolts go out of the lightnings, and come out of the rainbow of the clouds to the place appointed: out of the hard and stony indignation there shall fall thick hails, and the water of the sea shall be wroth against them, and the floods shall run roughly together. Yee a mighty wind shall stand up against them, and a storm shall scatter them abroad. Thus the unrighteous dealing of them shall bring all the land to a wilderness, and wickedness shall over throw the dwellings of the mighty
THE GOSPELL OF ST. MATTHEW Chpt 5
For I say unto you, except your righteousness exceed, the righteousness of the Scribes and Pharisees, ye cannot enter into the kingdom of heaven.
Ye have heard how it was said unto them of the old time: Thou shalt not kill. For whosoever killeth, shall be in danger of judgement. But I say unto you, whosoever is angry with his brother, shall be in danger of judgement. Whosoever sayeth unto his brother *Raca, shall be in danger of a council. But whosoever sayeth thou fool, shall be in danger of hell fire.
Therefore when thou offerest thy gift at the altar, and there rememberest that thy brother hath *ought against thee: leave there thine offering before the altar, and go thy way first and be reconciled to thy brother, and then come and offer thy gift.
Agree with thine adversary quickly, whiles thou art in the way with him, lest that adversary deliver thee to the judge, and the judge deliver thee to the minister, and then thou be cast into prison. Verily I say unto thee: thou shalt not come out thence, till thou have paid the utmost *farthing.
Ye have heard how it was said to them of old time: Thou shalt not commit *advoutry. But I say unto you, that whosoever looketh on a wife, lusting after her, hath committed advoutry with her already in his heart.
Wherefore if thy right eye offend thee, pluck him out, and cast him from thee. Better it is for thee that one of thy members perish, than that thy whole body should be cast into hell. Also if thy right hand offend thee, cut him off and cast him from thee. Better it is that one of thy members perish, than that all thy body should be cast into hell.
It is said, whosoever put away his wife, let him give her a testimonial also of the divorcement. But I say unto you: whosoever put away his wife, (except it be for fornication) causeth her to break matrimony. And whosoever marrieth her that is divorced, breaketh wedlock.
Again ye have heard how it was said to them of old time, thou shalt not forswear thyself, but shalt perform thine oath to God. But I say unto you, swear not at all: neither by heaven, for it is Gods seat: nor yet by the earth, for it is his footstool: neither by Jerusalem, for it is the city of that great king: neither shalt thou swear by thy head, because thou canst not make one white hair, or black: But your communication shall be, ye, ye: nay, nay. For whatsoever is more than that, cometh of evil.
*ought (anything) *advoutry: prefix "a" meaning not or without, devout: devotion; plain hearted to God, being devoted to something or some one else. see James 2 for adultery. *Raca: worthless: greatest contempt from the Hebrew *farthing 1/4 penny from the English. *twain (two). *Publicans: ones who worked for the Romans; collector of taxes or tribute from the public.
THE GOSPELL OF ST. MATTHEW Chpt 10
And fear ye not them which kill the body, and be not able to kill the soul. But rather fear him, which is able to destroy both soul and body into hell. Are not two sparrows sold for a farthing? And none of them doth light on the ground, without your father. And now are all the hairs of your heads numbered. Fear ye not therefore: ye are of more value than many sparrows.
THE GOSPELL OF ST. MATTHEW Chpt 16
When Jesus came into coasts of the city which is called Cesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples saying: whom do men say that I the son of man am? They said, some say that thou art John Baptist, some *Helias, some Jeremias, or one of the prophets. He said unto them: but whom say ye that I am? Simon Peter answered and said: Thou art Christ the son of the living God. And Jesus answered and said to him: happy art thou Simon the son of Jonas, for flesh and blood hath not opened unto thee that, but my father which is in heaven. And I say also unto thee that thou art Peter: and upon this rock I will build my congregation. And the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. And I will give unto thee, the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou bindest upon earth, shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou *loosest on earth, shall be *lowsed in heaven.
Then he charged his disciples, that they should tell no man, that he was Jesus Christ. From that time forth, Jesus began to show unto his disciples, how that he must go unto Jerusalem, and suffer many things of the elders, and of the high Priests, and of the Scribes, and must be killed, and rise again the third day. But Peter took him aside, and began to rebuke him saying: master, favour thyself, this shall not come unto thee. Then turned he about, and said unto Peter: come after me Satan thou offendest me, because thou savourest not godly things, but worldly things.
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
*advoutry: prefix "a" meaning not or without, devout: devotion; plain hearted to God, being devoted to something or some one else. see James 2 for adultery
*loosest: open from the Hebrew (see below) same word. lowsed: exactly as it is written. low from the Hebrew is "humbled"
*loose: exactly as it appears: loose from the Hebrew is to "open".
THE GOSPELL OF ST. MATTHEW Chpt 23
Woe be unto you Scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites, which compass sea and land, to bring one in to your belief: and when he is brought, ye make him two fold more the child of hell, than ye yourselves are.
THE GOSPELL OF ST. LUKE Chpt 10
Woe be to thee, Chorazin: woe be to thee, Bethsaida. For if the miracles had been done in Tyre and Sidon, which have been done in you, they had a great while ago repented sitting in hair and ashes. Nevertheless it shall be easier for Tyre and Sidon, at the judgement, than for you. And thou Capernaum which art exalted to heaven, shalt be thrust down to hell. He that heareth you, heareth me: and he that despiseth you, despiseth me: and he that despiseth me, despiseth him that sent me.
THE GOSPELL OF ST. LUKE Chpt 16
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 ACTS OF THE APOSTLES Chpt 2
Ye men of Israel hear these words. Jesus of Nazareth a man approved of God among you with miracles, wonders and signs which God did by him in the midst of you, as ye yourselves know: him have ye taken by the hands of unrighteous persons, after he was delivered by the determinate counsel and foreknowledge of God, and have crucified and slain: whom God hath raised up and loosed the sorrows of death, because it was impossible that he should be holden of it. For David speaketh of him. Afore hand I saw God always before me: For he is on my right hand, that I should not be moved. Therefore did my heart rejoice, and my tongue was glad. Moreover, also my flesh shall rest in hope, because thou wilt not leave my soul in hell, neither wilt suffer thine holy, to see corruption. Thou hast showed me the ways of life, and shalt make me full of joy with thy countenance.
Men and brethren, let me freely speak unto you of the patriarch David. For he is both dead and buried, and his sepulchre remaineth with us unto his day. Therefore seeing he was a Prophet, and knew that God had sworn with an oath to him, that the fruit of his loins should sit on his seat (in that Christ should rise again in the flesh) he saw before: and spake of the resurrection of Christ, that his soul should not be left in hell: neither his flesh should see corruption. This Jesus hath God raised up, whereof we all are witnesses.
THE FIRST TO THE CORINTHIANS Chpt 15
This say I brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God: Neither doth corruption inherit uncorruption. Behold I show you a mystery. We shall not all sleep: but we shall all be changed, and that in a moment, and in the twinkling of an eye, at the sound of the last trumpet. For the trumpet shall blow, and the dead shall rise incorruptible, and we shall be changed. For this corruptible must put on incorruptibility: and this mortal must put on immortality.
When this corruptible hath put on incorruptibility and this mortal hath put on immortality: then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written: Death is consumed into victory. Death where is thy sting ? hell where is thy victory? The sting of death is sin: and the strength of sin is the law. But thanks be unto God which hath given us victory, through our Lord Jesus Christ. Therefore my dear brethren, be ye steadfast and unmoveable, always rich in the works of the Lord, for as much as ye know how that your labour is not in vain in the Lord
THE SECOND EPISTLE OF ST. PETER Chpt 2
There were false Prophets among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you: which privily shall bring in damnable sects, even denying the Lord that hath bought them, and bring upon themselves swift damnation, and many shall follow their damnable ways, by which the way of truth shall be evil spoken of, and through covetousness shall they with *feigned words make merchandise of you, whose judgment is not far off, and their damnation sleepeth not.
For if God spared not the angels that sinned, but cast them down into hell, and delivered them in chains of darkness, to be kept unto judgement: Neither spared the old world, but saved Noah the eight preacher of righteousness, and brought in the flood upon the world of the ungodly, and turned the cities of Zodom and Gomor into ashes: overthrew them, damned them, and made of them an example unto all that after should live ungodly. And just Lot vexed with the uncleanly conversation of the wicked, delivered he. For he being righteous and dwelling among them in seeing and hearing, vexed his righteous soul from day to day with their unlawful deeds. The Lord knoweth how to deliver the godly out of temptation, and how to reserve the unjust unto the day of judgment for to be punished: namely them that walk after the flesh in the lust of uncleanness, and despise the rulers. Presumptuous are they, and stubborn and fear not to speak evil of them that are in authority. When the angels which are greater both in power and might, receive not of the Lord railing judgement against them. But these as brute beasts, naturally made to be taken and destroyed, speak evil of that they know not, and shall perish through their own destruction, and receive the reward of unrighteousness.
They count it pleasure to live deliciously for a season. Spots they are and filthiness, living at pleasure, and in deceivable ways, feasting with you: having eyes full of *advoutry and that cannot cease to sin, beguiling unstable souls. Hearts they have exercised with covetousness. They are cursed children, and have forsaken the right way, and are gone astray following the way of Balaam the son of Bosor, which loved the reward of unrighteousness: but was rebuked of his iniquity. The tame and dumb beast, speaking with mans voice, forbade the foolishness of the Prophet.
These are wells without water and clouds carried about of a tempest, to whom the mist of darkness is reserved for ever. For when they have spoken the swelling words of vanity, they beguile with wantonness through the lusts of the flesh, them that were clean escaped: but now are wrapped in errors. They promise them liberty, and are themselves the bond servants of corruption. For of whom soever a man is overcome, unto the same is he in bondage. For if they, after they have escaped from the filthiness of the world through the knowledge of the Lord and of the saviour Jesus Christ, they are yet tangled again therein and overcome: then is the latter end worse with them than the beginning. For it had been better for them, not to have known the way of righteousness than after they have known it, to turn from the holy commandment given unto them. It is happened unto them according to the true proverb: The dog is turned to his vomit again, and the sow that was washed, to her wallowing in the mire
*feigned (made up, beguiling) *advoutry: prefix "a" meaning not or without, devout: devotion; plain hearted to God, being devoted to something or some one else. see James 2 for adultery.
THE EPISTLE OF ST. JAMES Chpt 3
My brethren, be not every man a master, remembering how that we shall receive the more damnation: for in many things we sin all. If a man sin not in word, the same is a perfect man, and able to tame all the body. Behold we put bits into the horses mouths that they should obey us, and we turn about all the body. Behold also the ships, which though they be so great, and are driven of fierce winds, yet are they turned about with a very small helm, whither soever the violence of the governor will. Even so the tongue is little member, and boasteth great things.
Behold how great a thing a little fire kindleth, and the tongue is fire, and a world of wickedness. So is the tongue set among our members, that it defileth the whole body, and setteth a fire all that we have of nature, and is itself set a fire even of hell.
All the natures of beasts, and of birds, and of serpents, and things of the sea are meeked and tamed of the nature of man. But the tongue can no man tame. It is an unruly evil full of deadly poison. Therewith bless we God the father, and therewith curse we men which are made after the similitude of God. Out of one mouth proceedeth blessing and cursing. My brethren these things ought not so to be. Doth a fountain send forth at one place sweet water and bitter also? Can the fig tree, my brethren, bear olive berries: or a vine bear figs? So can no fountain give both salt water and fresh also. If any man be wise and endued with learning among you, let him show the works of his good conversation in meekness that is coupled with wisdom.
But if ye have bitter envying and strife in your hearts, rejoice not: neither be liars against the truth. This wisdom descendeth not from above: but is earthy, and natural, and devilish. For where envying and strife is, there is unstableness and all manner of evil works. But the wisdom that is from above, is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, and easy to be entreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without judging, and without simulation: yee, and the fruit of righteousness is sown in peace, of them that maintain peace
THE REVELATION OF ST JOHN Chpt 1
I John your brother and companion in tribulation, and in the kingdom and patience which is in *Jesu Christ, was in the isle of Pathmos for the word of God, and for the witnessing of Jesu Christ. I was in the spirit on a *sonday, and heard behind me a great voice, as it had been of a trumpet saying: I am Alpha and Omega, the first and the last. That thou seest, write in a book, and send it unto the congregations which are in Asia, unto Ephesus, and unto Smyrna, and unto Pergamos, and unto Thiatira, and unto Sardis, and unto Philadelphia, and unto Laodicia.
And I turned back to see the voice that spake to me. And when I was turned: I saw seven golden candlesticks. And in the midst of the candlesticks, one like unto the son of man, clothed with a linen garment down to the ground, and girt about the *paps with a golden girdle. His head, and his hairs were white, as white wool, and as snow: and his eyes were as a flame of fire: and his feet like unto brass as though they burnt in a furnace: and his voice as the sound of many waters. And he had in his right hand seven stars. And out of his mouth went a sharp two edged sword. And his face shone even as the *son in his strength.
And when I saw him, I fell at his feet, even as dead. And he laid his right hand upon me, saying unto me: fear not. I am the first and the last, and am alive, and was dead. And behold I am alive for evermore, and have the keys of hell and of death. Write therefore the things which thou hast seen, and the things which are, and the things which shall be fulfilled hereafter: and the mystery of the seven stars which thou sawest in my right hand, and the seven golden candlesticks. The seven stars are the messengers of the seven congregations: And the seven candlesticks which thou sawest are the seven congregations
THE REVELATION OF ST JOHN Chpt 6
And I saw when the lamb opened one of the seals, and I heard one of the four beasts say, as it were the noise of thunder, come and see. And I saw. And behold there was a white horse, and he that sat on him had a bow, and a crown was given unto him, and he went forth conquering and for to overcome. And when he opened the second seal, I heard the second beast say: come and see. And there went out another horse that was red, and power was given to him that sat thereon, to take peace from the earth, and that they should kill one another. And there was given unto him a great sword.
And when he opened the third seal, I heard the third beast say: come and see. And I beheld, and lo, a black horse: and he that sat on him, had a pair of balances in his hand. And I heard a voice in the midst of the four beasts say: a measure of wheat for a penny, and three measures of barley for a penny: and oil and wine see thou hurt not. And when he opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth beast say: come and see. And I looked. And behold a green horse, and his name that sat on him, was death, and hell followed after him, and power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, that cometh of vermin of the earth.
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
*Jesu: Hebrew for Jesus. *stonde (stunned) *stonde: stunned see stand plainly in the 19th Chapter and stunned in the 12th Chapter.
