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. LUKE Chpt 1
There was in the days of Herode the King of *Jurie a certain Priest named Zacharias, of the course of Abia. And his wife was of the daughters of Aaron: And her name was Elizabeth. Both were perfect before God, and walked in all the laws and ordinances of the Lord, that no man could find fault with them. And they had no child, because that Elizabeth was barren and both were well stricken in age.
And it came to pass, as he executed the Priests office before God, as his course came (according to the custom of the Priests office) his lot was to burn incense. And he went into the temple of the Lord, and the whole multitude of the people were without in prayer while the incense was a burning. And there appeared unto him an Angel of the Lord standing on the right side of the altar of incense. And when Zacharias saw him, he was abashed, and fear came on him.
And the Angel said unto him: fear not Zachary, for thy prayer is heard: And thy wife Elizabeth shall bear thee a son, and thou shalt call his name John, and thou shalt have joy and gladness, and many shall rejoice at his birth. For he shall be great in the sight of the Lord, and shall neither drink wine nor strong drink. And he shall be filled with the holy ghost, even in his mothers womb: and many of the children of Israel shall he turn to their Lord God. And he shall go before him in the spirit and power of *Helias to turn the hearts of the fathers to the children, and the unbelievers to the wisdom of the just men: to make the people ready for the Lord.
And Zacharias said unto the angel: whereby shall I know this? seeing that I am old and my wife well stricken in years. And the angel answered and said unto him. I am Gabriel that stand in the presence of God, and am sent to speak unto thee: and to show thee these glad tidings. And behold thou shalt be dumb, and not able to speak, until the time that these things be performed, because thou believedst not my words which shall be fulfilled in their season.
And the people waited for Zacharias and marvelled that he tarried in the temple. And when he came out, he could not speak unto them. Whereby they perceived that he had seen some vision in the temple. And he beckoned unto them, and remained speechless.
And it fortuned, as soon as the time of his office was out, he departed home into his own house. And after those days, his wife Elizabeth conceived, and hid herself five months saying: This wise hath God dealt with me in the days when he looked on me, to take from me the rebuke that I suffered among men. And in the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent from God unto a city of Galile, named Nazareth, to a virgin spoused to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David, and the virgins name was Mary. And the angel went in unto her, and said: Hail full of grace, the Lord is with thee: blessed art thou among women.
When she saw him, she was abashed at his saying: and cast in her mind what manner of salutation that should be. And the angel said unto her: fear not Mary: for thou hast found grace with God. Lo, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and shalt bear a son, and shalt call his name Jesus. He shall be great, and shall be called the son of the highest. And the Lord God shall give unto him the seat of his father David, and he shall reign over the house of Jacob for ever, and of his kingdom shall be none end.
Then said Mary unto the angel: How shall this be, seeing I know not a man? And the angel answered and said unto her: The holy ghost shall come upon thee, and the power of the highest shall overshadow thee. Therefore also that holy thing which shall be born, shall be called the son of God. And behold thy cousin Elizabeth she hath also conceived a son in her age. And this is her sixth month, though she be called barren: for with God can nothing be unpossible. And Mary said: behold the hand maiden of the Lord, be it unto me even as thou hast said. And the angel departed from her.
And Mary arose in those days, and went into the mountains with haste, into a city of *Jurie and entered into the house of Zachary, and saluted Elizabeth. And it fortuned, as Elizabeth heard the salutation of Mary, the babe sprang in her belly. And Elizabeth was filled with the holy ghost, and cried with a loud voice, and said: Blessed art thou among the women and blessed is the fruit of thy womb. And whence happeneth this to me that the mother of my Lord should come to me? For lo, as soon as the voice of thy salutation sounded in mine ears, the babe sprang in my belly for joy. And blessed art thou that believedst: for those things shall be performed which were told thee from the Lord. And Mary said:
My soul magnifieth the Lord. And my spirit rejoiceth in God my saviour. For he hath looked on the poor degree of his handmaiden. Behold now from henceforth shall all generations call me blessed. For he that is mighty hath done to me great things, and holy is his name. And his mercy is on them that fear him throughout all generations. He showeth strength with his arm, he scattereth them that are proud in the imagination of their hearts. He putteth down the mighty from their seats, and exalteth them of low degree. He filleth the hungry with good things: and sendeth away the rich empty. He remembereth mercy: and helpeth his servant Israel.
Even as he promised to our fathers, Abraham and to his seed for ever. And Mary abode with her about a three months, and returned again to her own house.
Elizabeths time was come that she should be delivered, and she brought forth a son. And her neighbours and her cousins heard tell how the Lord had showed great mercy upon her, and they rejoiced with her.
And it fortuned the eighth day: they came to circumcise the child: and called his name Zacharias, after the name of his father. How be it his mother answered and said: not so, but he shall be called John. And they said unto her: There is none of thy kin, that is named with this name. And they made signs to his father, how he would have him called. And he asked for writing tables and wrote saying: his name is John. And they marvelled all. And his mouth was opened immediately, and his tongue also, and he spake lauding God. And fear came on all them that dwelt nigh unto them. And all these sayings were noised abroad throughout all the hill country of *Jurie and all they that heard them laid them up in their hearts saying: What manner child shall this be? And the hand of the Lord was with him.
And his father Zacharias was filled with the holy ghost, and prophesied saying.
Blessed be the Lord God of Israel, for he hath visited and redeemed his people.
And hath raised up an horn of salvation unto us in the house of his servant David.
Even as he promised by the mouth of his holy Prophets which were since the world began. That we should be saved from our enemies and from the hands of all that hate us.
To fulfil the mercy promised to our fathers, and to remember his holy covenant.
And to perform the oath which he sware to our father Abraham, for to give us.
That we delivered out of the hands of our enemies, might serve him without fear, all the days of our life, in such holiness and righteousness that are accept before him. And thou child shalt be called the Prophet of the highest: for thou shalt go before the face of the Lord, to prepare his ways: And to give knowledge of salvation unto his people for the remission of sins. Through the tender mercy of our God, whereby the day spring from on high hath visited us.
To give light to them that sat in darkness and in shadow of death, and to guide our feet into the way of peace. And the child grew and waxed strong in spirit, and was in wilderness, till the day came when he should show himself unto the Israelites.

TO THE HEBREWS Chpt 11
By faith the harlot Rahab perished not with the unbelievers, when she had received the spies to lodging peaceably.
THE FIRST TO THE CORINTHIANS Chpt 7
To the remnant speak I, and not the Lord. If any brother have a wife that believeth not, if she be content to dwell with him, let him not put her away. And the woman which hath to her husband an infidel, if he consent to dwell with her, let her not put him away. For the unbelieving husband is sanctified by the wife and the unbelieving wife is sanctified by the husband. Or else were your children unclean: but now are they pure. But and if the unbelieving depart, let him depart. A brother or a sister is not in subjection to such. God hath called us in peace. For how knowest thou o woman, whether thou shalt save that man or no? Other how knowest thou o man whether thou shalt save that woman or no? but even as God hath distributed to every man.
As the Lord hath called every person, so let him walk: and so ordain I in all congregations. If any man be called being circumcised, let him add nothing thereto. If any be called uncircumcised: let him not be circumcised. Circumcision is nothing, uncircumcision is nothing: but the keeping of the commandments of God is altogether.
Let every man abide in the same state wherein he was called. Art thou called a servant? care not for it. Nevertheless if thou mayst be free, use it rather. For he that is called in the Lord being a servant is the Lords freeman. Likewise he that is called being free, is Christs servant. Ye are dearly bought, be not mens servants. Brethren let every man wherein he is called, therein abide with God.
THE GOSPELL OF ST. LUKE Chpt 6
And it fortuned in those days, that he went out into a mountain for to pray, and continued all night in prayer to God. And as soon as it was day, he called his disciples, and of them he chose twelve, which also he called Apostles. Simon whom he named Peter, and Andrew his brother. James and John, Philip and Bartlemew, Matthew and Thomas, James the son of Alpheus and Simon called Zelotes, and Judas James son, and Judas Iscarioth, which same was the traitor.
And he came down with them and stood in the plain field with the company of his disciples, and a great multitude of people out of all parts of *Jurie and Jerusalem, and from the sea coast of Tyre and Sidon, which came to hear him, and to be healed of their diseases: and they also that were vexed with foul spirits, and they were healed. And all the people pressed to touch him: for there went *vertue out of him, and healed them all.
And he lifted up his eyes upon the disciples, and said: Blessed be ye poor: for yours is the kingdom of God. Blessed are ye that hunger now: for ye shall be satisfied. Blessed are ye that weep now: for ye shall laugh. Blessed are ye when men hate you, and thrust you out of their company, and rail, and abhor your name as an evil thing, for the son of mans sake. Rejoice ye then, and be glad: for behold, your reward is great in heaven. After this manner their fathers entreated the Prophets.
But woe be to you that are rich: for ye have therein your consolation. Woe be to you that are full: for ye shall hunger. Woe be to you that now laugh: for ye shall wail and weep. Woe be to you when all men praise you: for so did their fathers to the false prophets.
But I say unto you which hear: Love your enemies. Do good to them which hate you. Bless them that curse you. And pray for them which wrongfully trouble you. And unto him that smiteth thee on the one cheek, offer also the other. And him that taketh away thy gown, forbid not to take thy coat also. Give to every man that asketh of thee. And of him that taketh away thy goods, ask them not again. And as ye would that men should do to you: so do ye to them likewise.
If ye love them which love you: what thank are ye worthy of? For the very sinners love their lovers. And if ye do for them which do for you: what thank are ye worthy of? For the very sinners do even the same. If ye lend to them of whom ye hope to receive: what thank shall ye have: For the very sinners lend to sinners, to receive as much again. Wherefore, love ye your enemies, do good and lend, looking for nothing again: and your reward shall be great, and ye shall be the children of the highest: for he is kind unto the unkind and to the evil.
Be ye therefore merciful, as your father is merciful. Judge not, and ye shall not be judged. Condemn not: and ye shall not be condemned. Forgive, and ye shall be forgiven. Give, and it shall be given unto you: good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, shall men give into your bosoms. For with what measure ye mete, with the same shall men mete to you again.
And he put forth a similitude unto them: Can the blind lead the blind? Do they not both then fall into the ditch? The disciple is not above his master. Every man shall be perfect, even as his master is. Why seest thou a mote in thy brothers eye, and considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye? Either how canst thou say to thy brother: Brother, let me pull out the mote that is in thine eye: when thou perceivest not the beam that is in thine own eye? Hypocrite, cast out the beam out of thine own eye first, and then shalt thou see perfectly, to pull out the mote out of thy brothers eye.
It is not a good tree that bringeth forth evil fruit: neither is that an evil tree, that bringeth forth good fruit. For every tree is known by his fruit. Neither of thorns gather men figs, nor of bushes gather they grapes. A good man out of the good treasure of his heart, bringeth forth that which is good. And an evil man out of the evil treasure of his heart, bringeth forth that which is evil. For of the abundance of the heart, his mouth speaketh.
Why call ye me Master, Master: and do not as I bid you? whosoever cometh to me, and heareth my sayings, and doth the same, I will show you to whom he is like. He is like a man which built an house: and digged deep and laid the foundation on a rock. When the waters arose, the flood beat upon that house, and could not move it. For it was grounded upon a rock. But he that heareth and doth not, is like a man that without foundation built an house upon the earth, against which the flood did beat: and it fell by and by. And the fall of that house was great

THE GOSPELL OF ST. MATTHEW Chpt 9
When the Pharisees saw that, they said to his Disciples: why eateth your master with Publicans and sinners? When Jesus heard that, he said unto them: The whole need not the physician, but they that are sick. Go and learn, what that meaneth: I have pleasure in mercy, and not in offering. For I am not come to call the righteous, but the sinners to repentance
THE SECOND TO TIMOTHYE Chpt 3
This understand, that in the last days shall come parlous times. For the men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, cursed speakers, disobedient to father and mother, unthankful, unholy, unkind, trucebreakers, stubborn, false accusers, rioters, fierce despisers of them which are good, traitors, heady, high minded, greedy upon voluptuousness more then lovers of God, having a similitude of Godly living, but have denied the power thereof: and such abhor. Of this sort are they which enter into houses, and bring into bondage women laden with sin, which women are led of *diverse lusts, ever learning and never able to come unto the knowledge of the truth.
As Jannes and Jambres withstood Moses, even so do these resist the truth, men they are of corrupt minds, and lewd as concerning the faith: but they shall prevail no longer. For their madness shall be uttered unto all men as theirs was. But thou hast seen the experience of my doctrine, fashion of living, purpose, faith, longsuffering, love, patience, persecutions, and afflictions which happened unto me at Antioche, at Iconium and at Lystra: which persecutions I suffered patiently. And from them all the Lord delivered me. Yea and all that will live godly in Christ *Jesu, must suffer persecutions. But the evil men and deceivers shall wax worse and worse, while they deceive and are deceived themselves.
But continue thou in the things which thou hast learned, which also were committed unto thee, seeing thou knowest of whom thou hast learned them and for as much also as thou hast known holy scripture of a child, which is able to make thee wise unto salvation through the faith which is in Christ Jesu. For all scripture given by inspiration of God, is profitable to teach, to improve, to amend and to instruct in righteousness, that the man of God may be perfect and prepared unto all good works

THE GOSPELL OF ST. MARK Chpt 4
And with many such similitudes he preached the word unto them, after as they might hear it. And without similitude spake he nothing unto them. But when they were apart, he expounded all things to his disciples. And the same day when evening was come, he said unto them: let us pass over unto the other side. And they left the people, and took him even as he was in the ship. And there were also with him other ships.
And there arose a great storm of wind, and dashed the waves into the ship, so that it was full. And he was in the stern asleep on a pillow. And they awoke him, and said to him: Master, carest thou not that we perish? And he rose up, and rebuked the wind, and said unto the sea: peace and be still. And the wind *allayed, and there followed a great calm. And he said unto them: why are ye so fearful? How is it that ye have no faith? And they feared exceedingly, and said one to another: what fellow is this? For both wind and sea obey him
*allayed (settled down)
and another of the same ...
kind unto unkind and to the evil...
