the Prophet Ezechiel 8
It happened that in the sixth year, the fifth day of the sixth month, I sat in my house, and the Lords of the counsel of Judah with me: and the hand of the Lord God even fell there upon me. And as I looked up, I saw as it were a likeness of fire from his loins upward it flashed marvelous clear. This similitude stretched out an hand, and took me by the hairy locks of my head, and the spirit lifted me up between heaven and earth: And God in a vision to Jerusalem, into the entry of the inner port that layeth toward the north: there stood an image, with whom he that hath all things in his power, was very wroth.
And behold, the glory of the God of Israel was in the same place: even as I had seen it afore in the field. And he said unto me: Thou son of man, O lift up thine eyes, and look toward the north. Then I lift up mine eyes toward the north., and behold: before the port northward, there was an alter made unto the image of provocation in the very entering in. And he said furthermore unto me: Thou son of man, seest thou what these do? Seest thou the great abominations that the house of Israel comites in this place? which ought not to be done in my sanctuary: But turn thee about, and thou shalt see yet greater abominations. And with that brought he me to the court gate: and when I looked, behold, there was an hole in the wall. Then said he unto me: Thou son of man, dig through the wall. And when I digged through the wall, behold there was a door. And he said unto me: Go thy way in, and look what wicked abominations they do there. So I went in, and saw: and behold, there were all manner of images of worms and beasts, all Idols and abominations of the house of Israel painted every one round about the wall. There stood also before the images. Seventy of the Lords of the counsel of the house of Israel: and in the midst of them stood Jaazaniah the son of Saphan: And every one of them had a censor in his hand, and out of the incense, there went a smoke, as it had been a cloud. Then said he unto me: Thou son of man, has thou seen what the Senators of the house of Israel do secretly, everyone in his chamber: For they say, Tush, the Lord seeth us not, the Lord regardeth not the world.
And he said unto me: Turn thee yet again, and thou shalt see the great abominations that they do. And with that he brought me to the door of the port of the Lords house, toward the north. And behold, there fat women mourning for Thamus. Then said he unto me: hast thou seen this, thou son of man? Turn ye about, and thou shalt see yet greater abominations. And so he brought me into the inward court of the Lords house: And behold at the port of the Lords house, between the for entry and the altar, there were five and twenty men, that turned their backs on the temple of the Lord, and their faces toward the east, and these worshiped the son.
And he said unto me: hast thou seen this thou son of man? Thinketh the house of Israel , that it is but a trifle, to do these abominations here? Should they fill the land full of wickedness, and undertake to provoke me unto anger: Yee and purposely to cast up their noses upon me? Therefore will I also do something in my wrothfull displeasure, so that mine eye shall not over see them, neither will I spare them. Yee and though they cry in mine ears with loud voice, yet will I not hear them.
the Prophet Ezechiel 23
The word of the Lord came unto me, saying: Thou son of man, there were two women, that had one mother: These ( when they were young ) began to play the harlots in Egypt. there were their breasts *brosed, and the pappes of their maidenhead destroyed. The eldest of them was called Oholah and her younger sister Oholibah. These two were mine, and they bare sons and daughters. Their names were, Samaria, and that was Oholah: and Jerusalem, that was Oholibah: As for Oholah she began to go a whoring, when I had taken her to me. She was set on fire upon her lovers the Assirians, which had to do with her: even the princes and lords, that were decked in costly array: fair young men lusty riders of horses.
Thus through her whoredom, she cleaved unto all the young men of Assyria: yee she was mad upon them, and defiled herself with all their Idols. Neither ceased she from the fornication, that she used with the Egyptians: for in her youth they lay with her, they brosed the breasts of her maidenhead and poured their whoredom upon her. Wherefore I delivered her into the hands of her lovers, even the Assyrians, whom she so loved. These discovered her shame, took her sons and daughters, and slew her with the sword: An evil name gat she of all the people, and they punished her.
Her sister Aholibah saw this, and destroyed herself with inordinate love, more than she, and exceeded her sister in whoredom she loved the Assyrians, ( which also lay with her ) namely, the princes and great lords, that were clothed with all manner of gorgeous apparel, all lusty horsemen and fair young persons. Then I saw, that they both were defiled a like. But she increased her whoredom: for when she saw men painted upon the wall, the images of the Chaldees set forth with fresh colors, with fair girdles about them, and goodly bonnets upon their heads, looking all like Princes ( after the manner of the Babylonians and Chaldees in their own land, where they be born ) immediatley, as soon as she saw them, she burnt in love upon them, and sent messengers for them into the land of the Chaldees.
Now when the Babylonians came to her, they lay with her, and defiled her with their whoredom, and so was she polluted with them. And when her lust was abated from them, her whoredom and shame was discovered and seen: then my heart forsook her, like as my heart was gone from her sister also. Nevertheless, she used her whoredome ever the longer the more, and remembered the days of her youth, wherein she had played the harlot in the land of Egypt: she burnt in lust upon them, whose flesh was like the flesh of Asses, and their seed like the seed of horses. Thus thou hast renewed the filthiness of thy youth, when thy lovers *bresed thy paps, and marred thy breasts in Egypt.
Therefore ( O Aholibah ) thus saith the Lord God. I will raise up thy lovers (with whom thou hast satisfied thy lust ) against thee, and gather them together round about thee: namely the Babylonians, and all the Chaldees: Pecod, Schoa, and Coa, with all the Assyrians: all young and fair lovers: princes and lords, knights and gentlemen, which be all good horsemen: These shall come upon thee with horses, chariots, and a great multitude of people: which shall be harnessed about thee on every side, with breastplates, shields and helmets. I will punish thee before them, yee they themselves shall punish thee, according to their own judgement. I will put my jealousy upon thee, so that they shall deal cruelly with thee. They shall cut off thy nose and thine ears, and the remnant shall fall through the sword. They shall carry away thy sons and thy daughters, and the residue shall be burnt in the fire. They shall strip thee out of thy clothes, and carry thy costly jewels away with them.
Thus I will make an end of thy filthiness and whoredom, which thou hast brought from the land of Egypt: so that thou shalt turn thine eyes no more after them, and cast thy mind no more upon Egypt. For thus saith the Lord: behold, I will deliver thee into the hands of them, whom thou hatest: yee even into the hands of them, with whom thou hast fulfilled thy lust, which shall deal cruelly with thee, and shall take away all thy labor, and thus the shame of thy filthy whoredom shall come to light. All these things shall happen unto thee, because of thy whoredom, which thou hast used among the Gentiles, with whos Idols thou hast defiled thy self. Thou hast walked in the way of thy sister, therefore will I give thee her cup in thine hand.
Thus saith the Lord God: Thou shalt drink of thy sisters cup, how deep and *tarre so ever it be to the bottom. Thou shalt be laughed to scorn, and had as greatly in derision, as possible. Thou shalt be full of drunkenness and sorrow, for the cup of thy sister Samaria is a cup of destruction and wasting: The same shalt thou drink, and sup it out even to the dregs, Yee thou shalt eat up the broken pieces of it, and so tear thine own breasts: for even I have spoken it, saith the Lord God.
Therefore thus saith the Lord God: For so much as thou hast forgotten me, and cast me aside, so bear now thy own filthiness and whoredom. The Lord said moreover unto me: Thou son of man, wilt thou not reprove Oholah and Oholibah? Show them their abominations: namely, That they have broken their wedlock, and stained their hands with blood: Yee even with their idols have they committed *advoutry, and offered them their own children ( to be devoured ) whom they have born unto me. Yee and this have they done unto me also: they have defiled my Sanctuary in that same day, and have unhallowed my sabbaths. For when they had slain their children for their idols, they came the same day into my Sanctuary to defile it. Lo, this have they done in my house. Beside all this, thou has sent thy messengers for men out of far countries: and when they came, thou hast bathed, trimmed and set forth thy self of the best fashion: thou satest upon a goodly bed, and a table spread before thee: whereupon thou hast set mine incense and mine oil.
Then there was great cheer with her: and the men that were sent from far countries over the desert, unto these they gave bracelets upon their hands, and set glorious crowns upon their heads: Then thought I: no doubt, these will use their harlotry also with yonder old whore. And they went into her, as unto a common harlot: Even so went they also to Oholah and Oholibah those filthy women.
O ye all that love virtue and righteousness, judge them, punish them: as *advoutrers and murderers ought to be judged and punished. For they are breakers of wed lock, and the blood is in their hands. Wherefore thus saith the Lord God: bring a great multitude of people upon them, and make them be scattered and spoiled: these shall stone them and gore them with their swords. They shall slay their sons and daughters and burn up their houses with fire.
Thus I will destroy all such filthiness out of the land, that all women may learn, not to do after your uncleanness. And so they shall lay your filthiness upon your own selves, and ye shall be punished for the sins, that ye have committed with your Idols: and ye shall know that I am the Lord.
*brosed= perhaps brused RN *bresed=cooked in fat (old French). *tarre=detestable. *advoutry: prefix "a" meaning not or without, devout: devotion to God our father, Jesu his son, love, truth, spirit. In most cases; in the KJV and other bibles of man this word was replaced with "adultery". see the children are offered up to the same advoutry. see James 2 for adultery.
Matthew 23 (again)
Then spake Jesus to the people, and to his disciples saying: The Scribes and the Pharisees sit in Moses seat. All therefore whatsoever they bid you observe, that observe and do: but after their works do not: For they say, and do not. Ye, and they bind heavy burdens and grievous to be borne, and lay them on mens shoulders: but they themselves will not heave at them with one of their fingers. All their works they do, for to be seen of men. They set abroad their *phylacteries, and make large borders on their garments, and love to sit uppermost at feasts and to have the chief seats in the synagogues, and greetings in the markets, and to be called of men Rabbi.
But ye shall not *suffer yourselves to be called Rabbi. For one is your master, that is to *wit Christ, and all ye are brethren. And call no man your father upon the earth, for there is but one your father, and he is in heaven. Be not called masters, for there is but one your master, and he is Christ. He that is greatest among you, shall be your servant. But whosoever exalteth himself, shall be brought low. And he that humbleth himself, shall be exalted. *Woe be unto you Scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites, for ye shut up the kingdom of heaven before men: ye yourselves go not in, neither suffer ye them that come, to enter in.
*Woe be unto you Scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites: ye devour widows houses: and that under a colour of praying long prayers wherefore ye shall receive greater damnation.
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.
Woe be unto you blind guides, which say whosoever swear by the temple: it is nothing: but whosoever swear by the gold of the temple, he offendeth. Ye fools and blind: whether is greater, the gold, or the temple that sanctifieth the gold? And whosoever sweareth by the altar, it is nothing: but whosoever sweareth by the offering that lieth on the altar, offendeth. Ye fools and blind: whether is greater the offering, or the altar which sanctifieth the offering? Whosoever therefore sweareth by the altar, sweareth by it, and by all that thereon is. And whosoever sweareth by the temple, sweareth by it, and by him that dwelleth therein. And he that sweareth by heaven, sweareth by the seat of God and by him that sitteth thereon.
Woe be to you Scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites, which tithe mint, annise and cummin, and leave the weightier matters of the law undone: judgement, mercy, and faith. These ought ye to have done, and not to have left the other undone. Ye blind guides which strain out a gnat and swallow a camel.
Woe be to you Scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites, which make clean the outer side of the cup, and of the platter: but within they are full of bribery and excess. Thou blind Pharisee, cleanse first, the inside of the cup and platter, that the outside of them may be clean also.
Woe be to you Scribes and Pharisees hypocrites, for ye are like unto painted tombs which appear beautiful outward: but are within full of dead bones and of all filthiness. So are ye, for outward ye appear righteous unto men, when within, ye are full of hypocrisy and iniquity.
Woe be unto you Scribes and Pharisees hypocrites: ye build the tombs of the Prophets, and garnish the sepulchers of the righteous, and say: If we had been in the days of our fathers, we would not have been partners with them in the blood of the Prophets. So then ye be witnesses unto yourselves, that ye are the children of them which killed the Prophets. Fulfil ye likewise the measure of your fathers. Ye serpents and generation of vipers, how should ye scape the damnation of hell?
Wherefore, behold I send unto you, prophets, wise men and scribes, and of them ye shall kill and crucify: and of them ye shall scourge in your synagogues, and persecute from city to city, that upon you may come all the righteous blood that was shed upon the earth, from the blood of righteous Abel, unto the blood of Zacharias the son of Barachias, whom ye slew between the temple and the altar. Verily I say unto you, all these things shall light upon this generation. Jerusalem, Jerusalem which killest Prophets, and stonest them which are sent to thee: how often would I have gathered thy children together, as the hen gathereth her chickens under her wings, but ye would not: Behold your habitation shall be left unto you desolate. For I say to you, ye shall not see me henceforth, till that ye say: blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord.
*phylacteries: either of two leather pouches containing scriptures, one worn on the left arm, the other on the forehead, by these Scribes or Pharisees. *suffer (allow)*wit (know) *Woe: this woe and the following appear as "bold type" in the text.
Acts of the Apostles 23 (also)
Paul beheld the council and said: men and brethren, I have lived in all good conscience before God until this day. The high priest Ananias commanded them that stood by to smite him on the mouth. Then said Paul to him: God smite thee, thou painted wall. Sittest thou and judgest me after the law? and commandest me to be smitten contrary to the law? And they that stood by, said: revilest thou Gods high Priest? Then said Paul: I wist not brethren, that he was the high priest. For it is written, thou shalt not curse the ruler of thy people.
When Paul perceived that the one part were Saduces, and the other Pharises: he cried out in the council. Men and brethren, I am a Pharise, the son of a Pharisaye. Of the hope and resurrection from death, I am Judged. And when he had so said, there arose a debate between the Pharises and the Saduces, and the multitude was divided. For the Saduces say that there is no resurrection, neither angel, nor spirit. But the Pharises grant both. And there arose a great cry, and the Scribes which were of the Pharises part, arose and strove saying: we find none evil in this man. Though a spirit or an angel hath appeared to him, let us not strive against God.
And when there arose great debate, the captain fearing lest Paul should have been plucked asunder of them, commanded the soldiers to go down, and to take him from among them and to bring him into the castle. The night following, God stood by him and said: Be of good cheer Paul: for as thou hast testified of me in Jerusalem, so must thou bear witness at Rome. When day was come, certain of the Jewes gathered themselves together, and made a vow, saying that they would neither eat nor drink till they had killed Paul. They were about forty which had made this *conspiration. And they came to the chief Priest and elders, and said: we have bound ourselves with a vow, that we will eat nothing until we have slain Paul. Now therefore give ye knowledge to the uppercaptain and to the council, that he bring him forth unto us tomorrow, as though we would know something more perfectly of him. But we (or ever he come near) are ready in the mean season to kill him.
When Pauls sisters son heard of their laying wait, he went and entered into the castle, and told Paul. And Paul called one of the under captains unto him, and said: bring this young man unto the high Captain: for he hath a certain thing to show him. And he took him, and said: Paul the prisoner called me unto him, and prayed me to bring this young man unto thee, which hath a certain matter to show thee.
The high captain took him by the hand, and went apart with him out of the way: and asked him: what hast thou to say unto me? And he said: the Jewes are determined to desire thee that thou wouldest bring forth Paul tomorrow into the council, as though they would enquire somewhat of him more perfectly. But follow not their minds: for there lie in wait for him of them, more than forty men, which have bound themselves with a vow, that they will neither eat nor drink till they have killed him. And now are they ready, and look for thy promise.
The uppercaptain let the young man depart and charged him: see thou tell it out to no man that thou hast showed these things to me. And he called unto him two under Captains, saying: make ready two hundred soldiers to go to Cesarea and horsemen threescore and ten, and spearmen two hundred, at the third hour of the night. And deliver them beasts that they may put Paul on, and bring him safe unto Felix the high *debite, and wrote a letter in this manner.
Claudius Lisias unto the most mighty ruler Felix, sendeth greetings. This man was taken of the Jewes, and should have been killed of them. Then came I with soldiers, and rescued him, and perceived that he was a Roman. And when I would have known the cause, wherefore they accused him, I brought him forth into their council. There perceived I that he was accused of questions of their law: but was not guilty of any thing worthy of death or of bonds. Afterward when it was showed me how that the Jews laid wait for the man, I sent him straightway to thee, and gave commandment to his accusers, if they had ought against him, to tell it unto thee: farewell. Then the soldiers as it was commanded them, took Paul, and brought him by night to Antipatras. On the morrow they left horsemen to go with him, and returned unto the castle. Which when they came to Cesarea, they delivered the epistle to the *debite, and presented Paul before him. When the *debits had read the letter, he asked of what country he was. And when he understood that he was of Cicill. I will hear thee (said he) when thine accusers are come also: and commanded him to be kept in Herods palace.
