EZEKIEL or JEHEZEKIEL Chpt 26
It happened, that in the eleventh year, And the first day of the Month, the word of the Lord came unto me, saying: Thou son of man, because that Tyre hath spoken upon Jerusalem: Aha, now I *trow the ports of the people be broken, and she turned unto me, for I have destroyed my belly full. Yee therefore saith the Lord God: Behold O Tyre, I will upon thee, I will bring a great multitude against thee, like as the sea ariseth with his waves: These shall break the walls of Tyre, and cast down her towers: I will scrape the ground from her, and make her a bare stone: Yee as the drying place, where the fishers hang up their nets by the sea side. Even I have spoken it, saith the Lord God. The Gentiles shall spoil her: her daughters upon the field shall perish with the sword, that they may know that I am the Lord.
For thus saith the Lord God: Behold, I will bring hither Nabuchodonosor ( which is the king of Babylon and a king of kings ) from the north upon Tyre, with horses, chariots, horsemen, and with a great multitude of people. Thy daughters that are in the land, shall he slay with the sword: but against thee, he shall make bulwarks and grave up ditches about thee, and lift up his shield against thee. His slings and battlerams shall he prepare for thy walls, and with his weapons break down thy towers. The dust of his horses shall cover thee, they have so many: thy walls shall shake at the noise of the horsemen, chariots and wheels: when he cometh to thy ports, as men do into an open city. With the hoofs of his horses feet, shall he tread down all thy streets.
He shall slay thy people with the sword, and break down the pillars of thy strength. They shall waste away thy riches, and spoil thy merchandise. Thy walls shall they break down, and destroy thy houses of pleasure. Thy stones, thy timber and foundations shall they cast in the water. Thus will I bring the melody of thy songs, and the voice of thy minstrelsy to an end, so they shall be no more heard. I will a bare stone of thee, yee a drying place for nets, and shall never be builded again: Forever I the Lord have spoken it, saith the Lord God: Thus hath the Lord God spoken concerning Tyre, The isles shall be moved at the noise of thy fall, and at the cry of the slain, that shall be murdered in thee. All Kings of the sea shall come down from their seats regal: they shall lay away their robes, and put off their costly clothing: Yee with trembling shall they be clothed, they shall sit upon the ground: they shall be afraid at thy sudden fall, and be abashed at thee.
They shall mourn for thee, and say unto thee: O thou noble city, that hast been so greatly occupied of old, Thou that hast been the strongest upon the sea with thine inhabitors of whom all men stood in fear: How art thou now so utterly destroyed? Now at the time of thy fall the inhabitors of the Isles, yee and the Isles themselves, shall stand in fear at thine end. For thus saith the Lord God: when I make thee a desolate city, ( as other cities be, that no man dwell in ) and when I bring the deep upon thee, that great waters may cover thee: Then will I cast thee down unto them, that descend into the pit, unto a people that hath been long dead, and set thee in a land that is beneath, like the old wilderness, with them that go down to their graves, so that no man shall dwell more in thee. And I will make thee to be no more in honor, in the land of the living. I will make an end of thee, and thou shalt be gone. Though thou be sought for, yet shalt thou not be found for evermore, sayeth the Lord God

DANIEL Chpt 2
In the second year of the reign of Nabuchodnosor, had Nabuchodnosor a dream, where through his spirit was vexed, and his sleep brake from him. Then the king commanded to call together all the soothsayers, charmers, witches and Caldees, for to show the king his dream. So they came, and stood before the king. And the king said unto them: I have dreamed a dream, and my spirit was so troubled therewith, that I have clean forgotten, what I dreamed. Upon this the Caldees answered the king in the *Syrians speech: O king, God save thy life forever. Show thy servants the dream, and we shall show thee, what it meaneth. The king gave the Caldees their answer, and said: It is gone from me: If ye will not make me understand the dream with the interpretation thereof, ye shall die, and your houses shall be prized. But if ye tell me the dream and the meaning thereof, ye shall have of me gifts, rewards and great honor: only, show me the dream, and the signification of it. They answered again, and said: the king must show his servants the dream, and so shall we declare what it meaneth. Then the king answered, saying: I perceive of a truth, that ye do but prolong the time: for so much as ye see, that the thing is gone from me. Therefore ye will not tell me the dream, ye shall all have one judgement: But ye faine and dissemble with vain words, which you speak before me, to put off the time. Therefore tell me the dream, and so shall I know, if ye can show me, what it meaneth. Upon this, the Caldees gave answer before the king, and said: There is no man upon the earth, that can tell the thing, which the king speaketh of: yee there is neither king, prince, nor Lord, that ever asked such things at a soothsayer, charmer, or Caldeer: for it is a very hard matter, that the king requireth. Neither is there any that can certify the king thereof, except the gods, whose dwelling is not among the creatures.
For the which cause the king was wroth with great indignation, and commanded to destroy all the wise men at Babylon: and the proclamation went forth, that the wise men should be slain. They sought also to slay Daniel with his companions. Then Daniel enquired Arioch the kings steward, of the judgement and sentence, that was gone forth already to kill such as were wise at Babylon. He answered and said to Arioch being then the kings deputy: Why hath the king proclaimed so cruel a sentence? So Arioch told Daniel the matter. Upon this, went Daniel up, and desired the king, that he might have favor, to show the king the interpretation: and then came he home again and showed the thing unto Ananias, Misael, and Asarias his companions: that they should beseech the God of heaven for grace in this secret, that Daniel and his fellows with others such as were wise in Babylon, perish not. Then was the mystery shown unto Daniel in a vision by night. And Daniel praised the God of heaven. Daniel also cried aloud, and said: O that the name of God might be praised for ever and ever, for wisdom and strength are his own: he changeth the times and ages: he putteth down kings, he setteth up kings: he giveth wisdom unto the wise, and understanding to those that understand, he openeth the deep secrets: he knoweth the thing that lieth in darkness, for the light dwelleth with him. I thank thee, and pray thee, O thou God of my fathers, that thou hast sent me wisdom and strength, and hast showed me the thing, that we desired of thee, for thou hast opened the kings matter unto me.
Upon this went Daniel in unto Arioch, whom the king had ordained to destroy the wise at Babylon: he went unto him ,and said: destroy not such as are wise in Babylon, but bring me unto the king, and I shall show the king the interpretation. Then Arioch brought Daniel into the king in all the haste, and said unto him: I have found a man among the prisoners of Judah, that shall show the king the interpretation. Then answered the king, and said unto Daniel, whose name was Balthasar: Art thou he, that can show me the dream, which I have seen, and the interpretation thereof? Daniel answered the king to his face, and said: As for this secret, for which the king maketh inquisition: it is neither the wise men, the sorcerer, the charmer nor the devil conjurer, that can certify the king of it: Only God in heaven can open secrets, and he it is, that showeth the king Nabuchodnosor, what is for to come in the latter days.
Thy dream, and that which thou hast seen in thine head upon thy bed, is this: O king, thou didst cast in thy mind, what should come hereafter: So he that is the opener of mysteries, telleth thee, what is for to come. As for me, this secret is not showed me, for any wisdom that I have, more than any other living: but only that I might show the king the interpretation, that he might know the thoughts of his own heart. Thou king sawest, and behold: there stood before thee a great Image, whose figure was marvelous great, and his visage grim. The image head was of fine gold, his breast and his arms of silver, his body and loins were of copper, his legs of iron, his feet were part of iron, and part of earth.
This thou sawest, till the time that ( without any hands ) there was hewn of a stone which smote the image upon his feet, that were both of iron and earth, and brake them to powder: Then was the iron, the earth, the copper, the silver and gold broken altogether in pieces: and became like the chaff of corn, that the wind bloweth away from the summer floors, that they can no more be found. But the stone that smote the Image, became a great mountain, which filled the whole earth: This is the dream. And now will we show before the king, what it meaneth.
O king, thou art a king of kings: For the God of heaven hath given thee a kingdom, riches, strength, and majesty: And hath delivered thee all things, that are among the children of men: the beasts of the field, and the fowls under heaven, and given thee dominion over them all. Thou art that golden head. After thee there shall arise another kingdom, which shall be less than thine. The third kingdom shall be like copper, and have dominion in all lands. The fourth kingdom shall be strong as iron. For like as iron bruise and breaketh all things: Yee even as iron beateth everything down, so shall it beat down and destroy.
Whereas thou sawest the feet and toes, part of earth and part of iron: that is a divided kingdom, which nevertheless shall have some of the iron ground mixed with it, for so much as thou hast seen the iron mixed with the clay.
The toes of the feet that were part of iron and part of clay, signifieth: that it shall be a kingdom partly strong and partly weak. And whereas thou sawest iron mix with clay: they shall mingle themselves with the seed of simple people: and yet not continue with one another, like as iron will not be soldered with a potsherd.
In the days of these kings, shall the God of heaven set up an everlasting kingdom, which shall not perish, and his kingdom shall not be given over to another people: Yee the same shall break and destroy all these kingdoms, but it shall endure for ever.
And where as thou sawest, that without any hands there was cut out of the mountain a stone, which break the iron, the copper, the earth, the silver and gold in pieces: by that hath the great God showed the king, what will come after this. This is a true dream, and the interpretation of it is sure.
Then the king Nabuchodnosor fell down upon his face, and bowed himself unto Daniel, and commanded that they should offer meatofferings and sweet odors unto him. The king answered Daniel, and said: Yee of a truth your God is a God above all gods, and Lord above all kings, and an opener of secrets: seeing thou can discover this mystery. So the king made Daniel a great man, and gave him many and great gifts.
He made him ruler of all the countries of Babylon, and Lord of all nobles, that were at Babylon. Now Daniel entreated the king for Sidrach, Misach, and Abednago, so that he made them rulers over all the offices in the land of Babylon: But Daniel himself remained still in the court by the King
NOW see this : THE FOURTH BOOK OF ESDRAS Chpt 12
And he said unto me: this is the interpretation of this sight. The Eagle whom thou saw sawest come up from the sea, is the kingdom which was seen in the vision of thy brother daniel, but it was not expounded unto him, for now I declare it unto thee. Behold, the days come, that there shall rise up a kingdom upon the earth, and it shall be feared above all the kingdoms that were before it.
THE SECOND OF THE MACHABEES Chpt 13
In the hundred forty ninth year gat Judas knowledge, that Antiochus Eupator was coming with a great power into Jewry, and Lysias the steward and ruler of his matters with him: having an hundred and ten thousand men of foot five thousand horsemen, twenty two Elephants, and three hundred chariots. Menelaus also joined himself with them ( but with great deceit ) and spake fair to the king, not for any good of the country, but because he thought to have been made some great man of authority. But the king of kings moved Antiochus mind against this ungodly person, and Lysias informed the king, that this Menelaus was the cause of all mischief: so that the king commanded to take him, and ( as the manner of them is ) to put him unto death in the same place.
There was also in the same place a tower of fifty cubits high, heaped with ashes: but above it was so made, that men might look down on every side. Where into the king commanded that shameful person to be cast among the ashes, as one that was cause of all ungraciousness. And reason it was, that the unthrift should die such a death, and not be buried: for he had done much mischief unto the altar of God ( whose fire and ashes were holy ) therefore it was right, that he himself also should be destroyed with ashes.
But the king was wood in his mind and came to show himself more cruel unto the Jews, than his father was. Which when Judas perceived, he commanded the people to call upon the Lord night and day: that he would now help them also, like as he had done always: For they were afraid to be put from their law, from their natural country and from the holy temple: and not to suffer the people ( which a little while afore began to recover ) to be subdued again of the blasphemous nations.
So when they had done this together, and besought the Lord for mercy, with weeping and fasting three days long, flat upon the ground: Judas exhorted them to make themselves ready. But he and the elders together devised, to go forth first with their people, afore the king brought his host into Jewry, and afore he besieged the city, and *so to commit the matter unto God.
Wherefore he ascribed the power of all things unto God the maker of the world, exhorting his people to fight manfully, ( Ye even unto death ) for the laws, the temple, the city, and their own natural country, and to defend the *citizens: and set his host before Modin. He gave them also that were with him, a token of the victory of God, choosing out the manliest young men, went to the kings pavilion, slew of the host fourteen thousand men, and the greatest Elephants, with those that sat upon them.
Thus when they had brought great fear and rumor among the tents of their enemies, and all things went prosperously with them, they departed in the break of the day, God being their helper and defender. Now when the king perceived the manliness of the Jews, he went about to take the strong places by craft, and removed his host unto Bethsura, which was a well kept house of defense of the Jews: but they were chased away, hurt and discomfited.
And Judas sent unto them that were in it, such things as were necessary. In the Jews host also there was one Rhodocus, which told the enemies their secrets; but they sought him out, and when they had gotten him, they put him in prison. After this did the king commune with them in Bethsum, took truce with them, departed, and stuck battle with Judas, which over came him.
But when he understood, that Phillip ( whom he had left to be overseer of his business at Antioche ) began to rebel against him, he was astonished in his mind: so that he yielded himself to the Jews, and made them an oath, to do whatsoever they thought right.
Now when he was reconciled with them, he offered, made much of the temple, and gave great gifts unto it, embraced Maccabeus, making him captain and governor from Ptolemais unto the Gerrenes.
Nevertheless when he came to Ptolemais, the people of the city were not content with that bond of friendship: for they were afraid, that he would break the covenant. Then went Lysias went up in to the seat and in formed the people, showed them the cause why, and pacified them. So he came again to Antioch. This is now the matter concerning the kings journey, and his return
*so to commit the matter unto God. (kjv= to go forth and try the matter in fight by the help of the Lord.) *citizens: (kjv= commonwealth)
THE FIRST TO TIMOTHYE Chpt 6
Let as many servants as are under the yoke, count their masters worthy of all honour, that the name of God and his doctrine be not evil spoken of. See that they which have believing masters, despise them not because they are brethren: but so much the rather do service, for as much as they are believing and beloved and partakers of the benefits.
These things teach and exhort. If any man teach otherwise, and is not content with the wholesome words of our Lord Jesu Christ, and with the doctrine of godliness, he is puffed up and knoweth nothing: but wasteth his brains about questions and strife of words, whereof spring envy, strife, railings, evil surmisings and vain disputations of men with corrupt minds and destitute of the truth, which think that lucre is godliness. From such separate thyself. Godliness is great riches, if a man be content with that he hath. For we brought nothing into the world, and it is a plain case that we can carry nothing out.
When we have food and raiment, let us therewith be content. They that will be rich, fall into temptation and snares, and into many foolish and noisome lusts, which drown men in perdition and destruction. For covetousness is root of all evil, which while some lusted after, they errored from the faith, and tangled themselves with many sorrows. But thou which art the man of God, fly such things. Follow righteousness, godliness, love, patience and meekness. Fight the good fight of faith. Lay hand on eternal life, whereunto thou art called, and hast professed a good profession before many witnesses.
I give thee charge in the sight of God, which quickeneth all things, and before Jesu Christ which under Pontius Pilate witnessed a good witnessing, that thou keep the commandment, and be without spot and unrebukable until the appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ, which appearing (when the time is come) he shall show that is blessed and mighty only, king of kings, and lord of lords, which only hath immortality, and dwelleth in light that no man can attain, whom never man saw, neither can see, unto whom be honour and rule everlasting. Amen.
Charge them that are rich in this world, that they be not exceeding wise, and that they trust not in the uncertain riches, but in the living God, which giveth us abundantly all things to enjoy them, and that they do good, and be rich in good works, and ready to give and to distribute, laying up in store for themselves a good foundation against the time to come that they may obtain eternal life.
O' Timothy save that which is given thee to keep, and avoid unghostly vanities of voices and oppositions of science falsely so called, which science while some professed, they have errored as concerning the faith. Grace be with thee. Amen
THE REVELATION OF ST JOHN Chpt 17
And there came one of the seven Angels, which had the seven vials: and talked with me, saying unto me: come I will show thee the judgement of the great whore that sitteth upon many waters, with whom have committed fornication the kings of the earth, so that the inhabiters of the earth, are drunken with the wine of her fornication. And he carried me away into the wilderness in the spirit. And I saw a woman sit upon a rose colored beast full of names of blasphemy which had ten horns. And the woman was arrayed in purple and rose colour and decked with gold, precious stone, and pearls, and had a cup of gold in her hand, full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication. And in her forehead was a name written, a mystery, great Babylon the mother of whoredom and abominations of the earth. And I saw the wife drunken with the blood of saints, and with the blood of the witnesses of *Jesu. And when I saw her: I wondered with great marvel.
And the Angel said unto me: wherefore marvellest thou? I will show thee the mystery of the woman, and of the beast that beareth her, which hath seven heads, and ten horns. The beast that thou seest, was, and is not, and shall ascend out of the bottomless pit, and shall go into perdition, and they that dwell on the earth shall wonder (whose names are not written in the book of life from the beginning of the world) when they behold the beast that was and is not. And here is a mind that hath wisdom.
The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth: they are also seven kings. Five are fallen, and one is, and another is not yet come. When he cometh he must continue a space. And the beast that was, and is not, is even the eighth, and is one of the seven, and shall go into destruction. And the ten horns which thou seest, are ten kings, which have received no kingdom, but shall receive power as kings at one hour with the beast. These have one mind, and shall give their power and strength unto the beast. These shall fight with the lamb, and the lamb shall overcome them: For he is Lord of lords, and king of kings and they that are on his side, are called, and chosen and faithful.
And he said unto me: the waters which thou sawest, where the whore sitteth, are people, and folk, and nations, and tongues. And the ten horns, which thou sawest upon the beast, are they that shall hate the whore, and shall make her desolate, and naked, and shall eat her flesh, and burn her with fire. For God hath put in their hearts, to fulfil his will, and to do with one consent, for to give her kingdom unto the beast, until the words of God be fulfilled. And the woman which thou sawest, is that great city, which reigneth over the kings of the earth
*Jesu: Hebrew for Jesus
THE REVELATION OF ST JOHN Chpt 19
And after that, I heard the voice of much people in heaven saying: Alleluya. Salvation and glory and honour and power be ascribed to the Lord our God, for true and righteous are his judgements, for he hath judged the great whore which did corrupt the earth with her fornication, and hath avenged the blood of his servants of her hand. And again they said: Alleluya. And smoke rose up for evermore. And the twenty four elders, and the four beasts fell down, and worshipped God that sat on the seat saying: Amen, Alleluya. And a voice came out of the seat, saying: praise our Lord God all ye that are his servants, and ye that fear him both small and great.
And I heard the voice of much people, even as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of strong thunderings, saying: Alleluya, for God omnipotent reigneth. Let us be glad and rejoice and give honour to him: for the marriage of the lamb is come, and his wife made herself ready. And to her was granted, that she should be arrayed with pure and goodly raynes. For the raynes is the righteousness of saints. And he said unto me, happy are they which are called unto the Lambs supper. And he said unto me: these are the true sayings of God. And I fell at his feet, to worship him. And he said unto me, see thou do it not for I am thy fellow servant, and one of thy brethren, and of them that have the testimony of Jesus. Worship God. For the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy. And I saw heaven open, and behold a white horse: and he that sat upon him was faithful and true, and in righteousness did judge and make battle. His eyes were as a flame of fire: and on his head were many crowns: and he had a name written, that no man knew but him self. And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood, and his name is called the word of God. And the warriors which were in heaven, followed him upon white horses, clothed with white and pure raynes: and out of his mouth went out a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the heathen. And he shall rule them with a rod of iron, and he trod the *winefat of fierceness and wrath of almighty God. And hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written: king of kings, and Lord of Lords.
And I saw an Angel *stand in the sun, and he cried with a loud voice, saying to all the fowls that fly by the midst of heaven, come and gather your selves to gether unto the supper of the great God that ye may eat the flesh of kings, and of high captains, and the flesh of mighty men, and the flesh of horses, and of them that sit on them, and the flesh of all free men and bond men, and of small and great. And I saw the beast and the kings of the earth, and their warriors gathered to gether to make battle against him that sat on the horse and against his soldiers.
And the beast was taken and with him that false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that received the beasts mark, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast into a pond of fire burning with brimstone: and the remnant were slain with the sword of him that sat upon the horse, which sword proceeded out of his mouth, and all the fowls were full filled with their flesh

THE REVELATION OF ST JOHN Chpt 1
The revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave unto him, for to show unto his servants things which must shortly come to pass. And he sent and showed by his angel unto his servant John, which bare record of the word of God, and of the testimony of Jesus Christ, and of all things that he saw. Happy is he that readeth, and they that hear the words of the prophecy, and keep those things which are written therein. For the time is at hand.
John to the seven congregations in Asia. Grace be with you and peace, from him which is and which was, and which is to come, and from the seven spirits which are present before his throne, and from Jesus Christ which is a faithful witness, and first begotten of the dead: and Lord over the kings of the earth. Unto him that loved us, and washed us from sins in his own blood, and made us kings and Priests unto God his father be glory and dominion for ever more. Amen. Behold he cometh with clouds, and all eyes shall see him: and they also which pierced him. And all kindreds of the earth shall wail. Even so: Amen. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord almighty, which is and which was and which is to come.
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
