JEREMIE or JEREMIAH Chpt 8
At the same time, saith the Lord: the bones of the kings of Judah, the bones of his princes, the bones of the priests, and prophets, yee and the bones of the citizens of Jerusalem, shall be brought out of their graves and layed against the Sun, the Moon and all the heavenly host: whom they loved, whom they served, whom they ran after, whom they sought and worshipped. They shall neither be gathered together ner buried, but shall lay upon the earth, to their shame and despising.
And all that remain of this wicked generation, shall desire rather to die than to live: wheresoever they remain, and where as I scatter them, saith the Lord of Hosts.
This shalt thou say unto them also: Thus saith the Lord: Do men fall also, that they arise not up again? And turn they so far away, that they never convert? Wherefore then is this people and Jerusalem gone so far back, that they turn not again. They are ever the longer the more obstinate, and will not be converted.
For I have looked, and considered: but there is no man that speaketh a good word: there is no man that taketh repentance for his sin, that will so much as say: wherefore have I done this? But every man ( as soon as he is turned back ) runneth forth still, like a wild horse in battle. The Stork knoweth his appointed time, the Turtledove, the Swallow and the Crane consider the time of travail: but my people will not know the time of the punishment of the Lord. How dare ye say then: we are wise, we have the law of the Lord among us?
Behold, the deceitful pen of the scribes, setteth forth lies: therefore shall the wise be confounded, they shall be afraid and taken: for lo, they have cast out the word of the Lord: what wisdom can then be among them? Wherefore, I will give their wives unto aliens, and their fields to destroyers.
From the lowest to the highest, they follow all filthy lucre: and from the Prophet unto the priest, they deal with all lies. Nevertheless, they heal the hurt of my people with sweet words, saying peace, peace where there is no peace at all.
*Fie for shame, how abominable things do they? and yet they be not ashamed, yee they know no shame.
Wherefore in the time of their visitation, they shall fall among dead bodies, sayeth the Lord.
Moreover I will gather them in ( sayeth the Lord ) so that there shall not be one grape upon the vine, neither one fig upon the fig tree, and the leaves shall be plucked off.
Then will I cause them to depart, and say: why prolong we the time? Let us gather ourselves together, and go into the strong city, there shall we be in rest: for the Lord our God hath put us to silence, and given us water mixed with gall, to drink: because we have sinned against him.
We looked for peace, and we fair not the better, we waited for the time of health, and lo, there is nothing but trouble.
Then shall the noise of his horses be heard from Dan, the whole land shall be afraid at the neighing of his strong horses: for they shall go in, and devour the land, with all that is in it: the cities, and those that dwell therin. Moreover , I will send Cockatrices and serpents among you ( which will not be charmed ) and they shall bite you sayeth the Lord.
Sorrow is come upon me, and heaviness vexeth my heart: for lo, the voice of the crying of my people is heard from a far country: Is not the Lord in Sion? Is not the king in her? Wherefore then have they grieved me ( shall the Lord say ) with their images and foolish strange fashions? The harvest is gone, the Summer hath an end, and we are not helped. I am sore vexed, because of the hurt of my people: I am heavy and abashed, for there is no more *Tryacle at Gilaad, and there is no Physician, that can heal the hurt of my people
Fie = used to express distaste or disapproval.
Tryacle = speech of sentiment, or medicine, antidote against poison. molasses
THE GOSPELL OF ST. LUKE Chpt 10
After these things, the Lord appointed other seventy also, and sent them two and two before him into every city and place, whither he himself would come. And he said unto them, the harvest is great but the laborers are few. Pray therefore the Lord of the harvest, to send forth laborers into his harvest. Go your ways: behold, I send you forth as lambs among wolves. Bear no wallet, neither scrip, nor shoes, and salute no man by the way. Into whatsoever house ye enter, first say: Peace be to this house. And if the son of peace be there, your peace shall rest upon him: if not, it shall return to you again. And in the same house tarry still, eating and drinking such as they have. For the laborer is worthy of his reward.
Go not from house to house: and into whatsoever city ye enter, if they receive you, eat such things as are set before you, and heal the sick that are there, and say unto them: the kingdom of God is come nigh upon you. But into whatsoever city ye shall enter, if they receive you not, go your ways out into the streets of the same and say: even the very dust, which cleaveth on us of your city, we wipe off against you: Notwithstanding, mark this that the kingdom of God was come nigh upon you. Yea and I say unto you, that it shall be easier in that day for *Zodome than for that city.
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.
And the seventy returned again with joy, saying: Lord even the very devils are subdued to us through thy name. And he said unto them: I saw Satan, as it had been lightning, fall down from heaven. Behold I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all manner power of the enemy: and nothing shall hurt you. Nevertheless, in this rejoice not, that the spirits are under your power: but rejoice, because your names are written in heaven.
That same time rejoiced Jesus in the spirit, and said: I confess unto thee father: Lord of heaven and earth, that thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent, and hast opened them to the babes. Even so father, for so pleased it thee. All things are given me of my father. And no man knoweth who the son is, but the father: neither who the father is, save the son, and he to whom the son will show him.
And he turned to his disciples, and said secretly: Happy are the eyes, which see that ye see. For I tell you that many prophets and kings have desired to see those things which ye see, and have not seen them: and to hear those things which ye hear, and have not heard them.
And behold a certain lawyer stood up, and tempted him, saying: Master what shall I do to inherit eternal life? He said unto him:: What is written in the law? How readest thou? And he answered and said: Love thy Lord God, with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy strength, and with all thy mind: and thy neighbor as thyself. And he said unto him: Thou hast answered right. This do and thou shalt live. He willing to justify himself, said unto Jesus: Who is then my neighbor?
Jesus answered and said: A certain man descended from *Herusalem into *Herico, and fell into the hands of thieves, which robbed him of his raiment and wounded him, and departed leaving him half dead. And by chance there came a certain Priest that same way, and when he saw him, he passed by. And likewise a Levite, when he was come nigh to the place, went and looked on him, and passed by. Then a certain Samaritan, as he journeyed, came nigh unto him and when he saw him, had compassion on him, and went to and bound up his wounds, and poured in oil and wine, and put him on his own beast, and brought him to a common inn, and made provision for him. And on the morrow when he departed, he took out two pence and gave them to the host, and said unto him: Take care of him, and whatsoever thou spendest more, when I come again, I will recompense thee. Which now of these three thinkest thou, was neighbor unto him that fell into the thieves hands? And he said: he that showed mercy on him. Then said Jesus unto him: Go and do thou likewise.
It fortuned as they went, that he entered into a certain town. And a certain woman named Martha, received him into her house. And this woman had a sister called Mary, which sat at Jesus feet, and heard his preaching. And Martha was cumbered about much serving, and stood and said: master, dost thou not care, that my sister hath left me to minister alone? Bid her therefore, that she help me. And Jesus answered, and said unto her: Martha, Martha, thou carest, and art troubled about many things: verily one is needful. Mary hath chosen her that good part, which shall not be taken away from her

SECOND BOOK OF MOSES Chpt 24
And he said unto Moses: come unto the Lord: both thou and Aaron, Nadab and Abihu, and the seventy elders of Israel, and worship afar off. And Moses went himself alone unto the Lord, but they came not nigh, neither came the people up with him. And Moses came and told the people all the words of the Lord and all the laws. And all the people answered with one voice and said: all the words which the Lord hath said, will we do. Then Moses wrote all the words of the Lord and rose up early and made an altar under the hill, and twelve pillars according to the number of the twelve tribes of Israel, and sent young men of the children of Israel to sacrifice burnt offerings and to offer peace offerings of oxen unto the Lord. And Moses took half of the blood and put it in basins, and the other half he sprinkled on the altar.
And he took the book of the appointment and read it in the audience of the people. And they said: All that the Lord hath said, we will do and hear. And Moses took the blood and sprinkled it on the people and said: behold, this is the blood of the appointment which the Lord hath made with you upon all these words.
Then went Moses and Aaron, Nadab and Abihu and the seventy elders of Israel up, and saw the God of Israel, and under his feet as it were a brick work of Saphir and as it were the fashion of heaven when it is clear, and upon the nobles of the children of Israel he set not his hand. And when they had seen God they ate and drank.
And the Lord said unto Moses: come up to me in to the hill and be there, and I will give thee tables of stone and a law and commandments, which I have written to teach them. Then Moses rose up and his minister Josua, and Moses went up into the hill of God, and said unto the elders: tarry ye here until we come again unto you: And behold here is Aaron and Hur with you. If any man have any matters to do, let him come to them. When Moses was come up into the mount, a cloud covered the hill, and the glory of the Lord abode upon mount Sinai, and the cloud covered it six days. And the seventh day he called unto Moses out of the cloud. And the fashion of the glory of the Lord was like consuming fire on the top of the hill in the sight of the children of Israel. And Moses went into the mountain. And Moses was in the mount forty days and forty nights
SECOND BOOK OF SAMUEL Chpt 22
And David spake the words of this song unto the Lord, what time the Lord had delivered him out of the hands of all his enemies, and out of the hands of Saul.
And he said: The Lord is my *rock, my castle and my deliverer. God is my strength, and in him will I trust: my shield and the horn that defendeth me: mine high hold and refuge: O' my Saviour, save me from wrong.
I will praise and call on the Lord, and so shall be saved from mine enemies. For the waves of death have closed me about, and the floods of Belial have feared me. The cords of hell have compassed me about, and the snares of death have overtaken me. In my tribulation I called to the Lord, and cried to my God. And he heard my voice out of his temple, and my cry entered into his ears. And the earth trembled and quake, and the foundations of heaven moved and shook, because he was angry.
Smoke went up out of his nostrils, and consuming fire out of his mouth, that coals were kindled of him. And he bowed heaven and came down, and darkness underneath his feet. And he rode upon Cherub and flew: and appeared upon the wings of the wind. And he made darkness a tabernacle round about him, with water gathered together in thick clouds. Of the brightness, that was before him, coals were set on fire.
The Lord thundered from heaven, and the most high put out his voice. And he shot arrows and scattered them, and hurled lightning and turmoiled them. And the bottom of the sea appeared, and the foundations of the world were seen, by the reason of the rebuking of the Lord, and through the blasting of the breath of his nostrils. He sent from on high and fetched me, and plucked me out of mighty waters.
He delivered me from my mighty enemy, and from them that hated me and were too strong for me. When they had compassed me in the day of my tribulation, the Lord stayed me up. And he brought me out into roomth, and delivered me, because he delighted in me.
The Lord rewarded me according to my righteousness, and according to the pureness of my hands he dealt with me. For I kept the ways of the Lord, and did no wickedness forsaking my God. But I had all his laws in my sight, and I turned my face from none of his ordinances. But was pure unto him ward, and kept myself from wickedness.
And the Lord did to me again, according to my righteousness, and after my pureness that I had in his sight. With the holy thou shalt be holy, and with the man that is uncorrupt, thou shalt be uncorrupt. With the pure thou shalt be pure, and with the froward thou shalt be froward also. And the people that are in adversity, thou shalt help. And on the proud shalt thou cast thine eyes. Thou art my light, O' Lord, and the Lord shall light my darkness.
With thy help I will run through an Host of men, and by the aid of my God will spring over a wall. The way of God is undefiled, and the word of the Lord fined as gold, and he a shield to all that trust in him.
Who is a God save the Lord, and who mighty save our God? God is my strength in war, and riddeth the way clear before me. And maketh my feet as swift as an hinds, and setteth me fast upon my high hold.
And teacheth my hands to fight, that a bow of brass is too weak for mine arms.
And thou hast saved me with thy shield, and keptest me ever in meekness. And thou madest me space to walk in, that my feet should not stumble. I followed mine enemies and destroyed them, and turned not again until I had consumed them.
I wasted them and so clouted them, that they could not arise: but fell under my feet.
And thou compassed me about with might to battle, and madest them that rose against me to stoop under me.
And thou madest mine enemies to turn their backs to me, and them that hated me, and I destroyed them. They looked for help: But none came to save them: unto the Lord they cried, but he heard them not.
And I will beat them as small as the dust of the earth, and will stamp them as the dirt of the street, and will spread them abroad.
And thou delivered me from the dissension of my people, and keepest me to be an head over nations, for the people which I knew not became my servants.
And the aliens crouched unto me, and obeyed me at a word.
And the aliens that shrink away shall tremble for fear in their defended places.
The Lord live, and blessed be he that is my strength: and exalted be God the strength that saveth me. It is God that avengeth me, and bringeth down the people under me. And delivereth me from mine enemies: thou liftest me up on high from them that rise against me, and deliverest me from the wicked men.
And therefore I will praise thee O' Lord among the heathen, and will sing unto thy name. For thy great and manifold saving of thy king, and showing mercy unto thine anointed, even to David, and his seed for ever
*this word rock appears to be in very bold face in the original.
THE PSALMS Chpt 18
I will love thee, ( O' Lord ) my strength.
The Lord is my *succor, my refuge, my Savior: my God, my helper, in whom I will trust: my buckler, the horn of my health, and my protection.
I will praise the Lord, and call upon him, so shall I be save from mine enemies.
The sorrows of death compassed me, and the brooks of ungodliness made me afraid.
The pains of hell came about me, the snares of death took hold upon me.
Yet in my trouble I called upon the Lord, and complained unto my God. So he heard my voice out of his holy temple, and my complaint came before him, yee even into his ears.
Then the earth trembled and quaked, the very foundations of the hills shook and were removed, because he was wroth.
There went a smoke out of his nostrils, and a consuming fire out of his mouth, so that coals were kindled at it.
He bowed the heavens, and came down, and it was dark was under his feet.
He rode upon the Cherub, and did fly: he came flying with the wings of the wind.
He made darkness his pavilion round about him, with dark waters and thick clouds to cover him.
At the brightness of his presence the clouds removed, with hail stones and coals of fire.
The Lord also thundered out of the heaven, and the height gave his thunder with hail stones and coals of fire.
He sent out his arrows and scattered them, he cast sore lightnings, and destroyed them.
The springs of waters were seen, and the foundations of the round world were discovered at thy chiding (O' Lord) at the blasting and breath of thy displeasures.
He sent from the height to fetch me, and took me out of great waters.
He delivered me from my strong enemies, and from my foes which were too mighty for me.
They prevented me in the time of my trouble, but the Lord was my defense.
He brought me forth also into liberty: and delivered me, because he had a favor unto me.
The Lord shall reward me after my righteous dealing, and according to the cleanness of my hands shall he recompensed me.
For I have kept the ways of the Lord: and have not behaved myself wickedly against my God.
I have an eye unto all his laws, and cast not out his commandments from me.
Uncorrupt will I be before him, and will I *eschue my own wickedness.
Therefore shall the Lord reward me after my righteous dealing, and according to the cleanness of my hands in his eyesight.
With the holy thou shalt be holy, and with the innocent thou shalt be innocent.
With the clean thou shalt be clean, and with the *froward thou shalt be froward.
For thou shalt save the poor oppressed, and bring down the high looks of the proud.
Thou lightest my candle, O' Lord my God: thou makest my darkness to be light.
For in thee I can discomfort an host of men: yee in my God I can leap over the wall.
The way of God is a perfect way: the words of the Lord are tried in fire: he is a shield of defense, for all them that trust in him.
For who is God, but the Lord? Or, who hath any strength, but our God?
It is God that girdeth me with strength, and made my way uncorrupt.
He hath made my feet like hertes feet, and set me up on high.
He teacheth my hands to fight, and maketh mine arms to break even a bow of steel.
Thou hast given me the defense of thy health, thy right hand upholdeth me, and thy loving correction maketh me great.
Thou hast made room enough under me for to go, that my foot steps should not slide.
I will follow upon mine enemies, and take them: I will not turn till they be discomforted.
I will smite them, they shall not be able to stand, but fall under my feet.
Thou hast girded me with strength unto the battle, thou hast thrown them all down under me, that rose up against me.
Thou hast made mine enemies to turn their backs upon me, thou hast destroyed them that hate me.
They cried, but there was none to help them: yee even unto the Lord, but he heard them not.
I will beat them small as the dust clay in the wind, I will cast them out as clay in the streets.
Thou shalt deliver me from the strivings of the people, thou shalt make me the head of the Heathen.
As soon as they hear of me, they shall obey me, but the strange children disassemble with me.
The strange children are waxen old, and go halting out of their paths.
The Lord liveth: and blessed be my helper, praise be the God of my health.
Even the God which seeth that I be avenged, and subdueth the people unto me.
It is he that delivereth me from my cruel enemies: thou shalt lift me up from them that rise against me, thou shalt rid me from the wicked man.
For this cause I will give thanks unto thee ( O' Lord ) among the gentiles, and sing praises unto thy name.
Great prosperity giveth he unto his king, and showeth loving kindness unto David his anointed, yee and to his seed for evermore

THE 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 SECOND TO THE CORINTHIANS Chpt 11
Would to God, ye could *suffer me a little in my foolishness: yee, and I pray you forbear me. For I am jealous over you with godly jealousy. For I coupled you to one man, to make you a chaste virgin to Christ. But I fear lest as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtlety, even so your wits should be corrupt from the singleness that is in Christ. For if he that cometh, preach another Jesus than him whom we preached: or if ye receive another spirit than that which ye have received: either another gospel than that ye have received, ye might right well have been content. I suppose that I was not behind the chief Apostles. Though I be rude in speaking, yet I am not so in knowledge. How be it among you we are known to the utmost what we are in all things. Did I therein sin, because I submitted myself, that ye might be exalted, and because I preached to you the gospel of God free? I robbed other congregations, and took wages of them, to do you service with all. And when I was present with you, and had need, I was grievous to no man for that which was lacking unto me, the brethren which came from Macedonia, supplied: and in all things I kept my self that I should not be grievous to you: and so will I keep myself.
If the truth of Christ be in me, this rejoicing shall not be taken from me in the regions of Achaia. Wherefore? Because I love you not? God knoweth. Nevertheless what I do, that will I do, to cut away occasion from them which desire occasion, that they might be found like unto us in that wherein they rejoice. For these false apostles are deceitful workers, and fashion them selves like unto the Apostles of Christ. And no marvel, for Satan himself is changed into the fashion of an angel of light. Therefore it is no great thing, though his ministers fashion them selves as though they were the ministers of righteousness: whose end shall be according to their deeds.
I say again, lest any man think that I am foolish: or else even now take me as a fool, that I may boast my self a little. That I speak, I speak it not after the ways of the Lord: but as it were foolishly, while we are now come to boasting. Seeing that many rejoice after the flesh, I will rejoice also. For ye **suffer fools gladly, because that ye your selves are wise. For ye **suffer even if a man bring you into bondage: if a man devour: if a man take: if a man exalt him self: if a man smite you on the face. I speak as concerning rebuke, as though we had been weak.
How be it whereinsoever any man dare be bold (I speak foolishly) I dare be bold also. They are Hebrews, so am I: They are Israelites, even so am I. They are the seed of Abraham, even so am I. They are the ministers of Christ (I speak as a fool) I am more: In labors more abundant: In stripes above measure: In prison more plenteously: In death often. Of the Jewes five times received I every time forty stripes save one. *Thrice was I beaten with rods. I was once stoned. I suffered thrice shipwreck. Night and day have I been in the deep of the sea. In journeying often: In perils of waters: In perils of robbers: In jeopardies of mine own nation In jeopardies among the heathen. I have been in perils in cities, in perils in wilderness, in perils in the sea, in perils among false brethren, in labour and travail, in watching often, in hunger, in thirst, in fastings often, in cold and in nakedness. And beside the things which outwardly happen unto me, I am cumbered daily, and do care for all congregations. Who is sick, and I am not sick? Who is hurt in the faith and my heart burneth not? If I must needs rejoice, I will rejoice of mine infirmities
*suffer (allow) **suffer (allow, even suffer) *Thrice (three times)
