And measures and matters of The Truth of the "time" we are in ...how "man" ..."thought to change time and times ...
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.
Behold in a dread nightmare of the dark season ...of the times and time ..of the season of man ...see son of man ...
and i was taken and shown in the high hills and low places of the UNGodlie world of the worldly.
and there was a man who thought ...imagined ...fantasized that he own his own home ...
Yet it was in spirit and truth a ...rental ...only a rental ...
and round about the mans house ...house ...was religious and churchly people and peoples ...
and a man appeared ...
and the truth of the word of God came and was shown ...
Yet the world of the worldly ...regarded it little ...
even the religious and churchlie ...for they had all ready been convinced of religiousness and churchlie ness ...that they already knew the truth ...and were all ready ...
and barking packs of dogs ...went around barking at people and peoples ...
even snapping and biting at some ...
and a dog came to snap and bite at the appearing man ...
and the wretched barking biting snarling snapping ...dog ...was kicked in the teeth...
and the scene and seeing changed ...
and there was no more things or people of the UNGodlie world of the worldly ...
and no more religious self right ness ...
and no more barking biting snarling snapping dogs ...
Yet there was wonder full waters that people could swim in ...
and every mans house was like his own ...
and there was a high mountain ...to look out from ...
and was as though any could see for ever ...
and grown men and grown women played ...even as children ...
and there was a mighty tree shown ...
and the fruit of the mighty tree was wonder full to eat ...
and any and all could eat their fill of the fruit of the mighty tree ...
and scripture came back to remembrance ...
TO THE HEBREWS Chpt 3
Therefore holy brethren, partakers of the celestial callings consider the ambassador and high priest of our profession Christ Jesus, which was faithful to him that made him, even as was Moses in all his house. And yet was this man counted worthy of more glory than Moses: In as much as he which hath prepared the house, hath most honour in the house. Every house is prepared of some man. But he that ordained all things, is God. And Moses verily was faithful in all his house, as a minister, to bear witness of those things which should be spoken afterward. But Christ as a son, hath rule over the house, whose house are we, so that we hold fast the confidence and the rejoicing of that hope, unto the end.
Wherefore as the *holy ghost saith: today if ye shall hear his voice, harden not your hearts, after the rebellion in the day of temptation in the wilderness, where your fathers tempted me, proved me, and saw my works forty years long. Wherefore I was grieved with that generation and said: They *erre ever in their hearts: they verily have not known my ways so that I sware in my wrath, that they should not enter into my rest. Take heed brethren that there be in none of you an evil heart in unbelief, that he should depart from the living God: but exhort one another daily, while it is called today, lest any of you wax hard hearted through the deceitfulness of sin.
We are partakers of Christ if we keep sure unto the end the first substance, so long as it is said: today if ye hear his voice, harden not your hearts, as when ye rebelled. For some, when they heard, rebelled: how be it not all that came out of Egypt under Moses. But with whom was he displeased forty years? Was he not displeased with them that sinned whose carcasses were overthrown in the desert? To whom sware he that they should not enter into his rest: but unto them that believed not? And we see that they could not enter in, because of unbelief.
THE BOOK OF WISDOM Chpt 9
For the thoughts of mortal men are miserable, and our forecasts are but uncertain. And why? A mortal and corruptible body is heavy unto the soul and the earthy mansion keepeth down the understanding that *museth upon many things. Very hardly can we discern the things that are upon earth, and great labor have we, or we can find the things that are before our eyes: Who will then seek out the ground of the things that are done in heaven? O' Lord, who can have knowledge of thy understanding and meaning, except thou give wisdom, and send thy holy ghost from above? That the ways of them which are upon the earth may be reformed: that men may learn the things that are pleasant unto thee, and be preserved through wisdom.

THE FOURTH BOOK OF ESDRAS Chpt 13
And it happened after the seven days, that I dreamed a dream by night. And behold, there arose a wind from the sea, that it moved all the floods thereof. And I looked, and behold, the man was strong and increased with the clouds of heaven: And when he turned his countenance to consider, all the things trembled that were seen under him: and when the voice went out of his mouth, all they burnt that heard him, like as the earth when it feeleth the fire.
After these I saw, and behold there was gathered together a multitude of men out of number from the four winds of the heaven, to fight against the man, that came out from the sea. And I looked, and behold, he graved himself a great mountain, and flew up upon it. But I would have seen the border or place, where out the hill was graven, and I could not.
I saw after these, that all they which came to fight against him, were sore afraid, and yet *durst they fight. Nevertheless when he saw the fierceness and violence of the people, he neither lift up his hand nor held sword, nor any weapon: but only (as I saw ) he sent out of his mouth as it had been a blast of fire, and out of his lips the wind of flame: and out of his tongue he cast sparks and storms, and they were all mixed together : the blast of fire, the wind of the flames, and the great storm, and fell with a rush upon the people, which was prepared to fight and brunt them up everyone: so that of the innumerable multitude there was nothing seen, but only dust and smoke. When I saw this I was afraid.
Afterward saw I the same man come down from the mountain, and calling unto him another peaceable people: and there came much people unto him: some were glad some were sorry, some of them were bound, so that they were carried and brought forth.
Then was I sick through great fear, and I awaked, and said: thou hast shown thy servant all thy wonders from the beginning, and hast counted me worthy, that thou mightest receive my prayer: show me now yet this interpretation of this dream. For thus I consider in my understanding: Woe unto them that shall be left in those days: and much more woe unto them that are not left behind: for they that were not left, were in heaviness.
Now understand I the things that are laid up in the latter days which shall happen unto them, and to those that are not left behind. Therefore they are come into great perils, and many necessities, like as these dreams declare. Yet is it easier, that he which suffereth hurt come in these, then to pass away as a cloud out of the world, and now to see the things that shall happen in the last.
Then answered he me, and said: The interpretation of the sight shall I show thee, and I will open unto thee, the things that thou hast required. For thou hast spoken of them that are left behind, and this is the interpretation. He that taketh away the peril in that time, hath kept himself. They that be fallen into harm, are such as have works and faith unto the Most mighty. Know this therefore, that they which be left behind, are more blessed, then they that be dead. This is the meaning of the vision. Where as thou sawest a man coming up from the deep of the sea, the same is he that God the Highest hath kept a great season, which by his own self will deliver his creature, and he shall order them that are left behind. And where as thou sawest, that out of his mouth there came a blast of wind, fire and storm, and how that he lift up neither sword nor weapon, but that the rushing in of him destroyed the whole multitude, that came to fight against him: it signifieth, that the days come, when God will deliver them that are upon the earth, and in a trance of mind shall he come upon them, that dwell in the earth. And one shall undertake to fight against another, one city against another, one place against another, one people against another, one realm against another. When this cometh to pass, then shall the tokens come, that I showed thee before: and then shall my son be declared, whom thou sawest climb up as a man. And when all the people hear his voice every man shall in their own land leave the battle that they have one against another, an innumerable multitude shall be gathered together, as they that be willing to come and to overcome him by fighting. But he shall stand upon the top of mount Sion. Nevertheless Sion shall come, and shall be showed, being prepared and builded for all men, like as thou sawest the hill graven forth without any hands. But my son shall rebuke the people that are come for their wickedness, with the tempest, and for their evil imaginations: and their pains wherewith they shall be punished, are likened unto the flame: and with out any labor, shall he destroy them, even by the law, which is compared to the fire.
And whereas thou sawest, that he gathered another peaceable people unto him: those are the ten tribes, which were carried away prisoners out of their own land, in the time of *Oseas the King, whom *Salmanasar the King of Assiria took prisoner, and carried them over the water, and so they came into another land.
But they gave them this counsel, that they should leave the multitude of the Heathen, and go forth into a farther country, where never mankind dwelt: that they might there keep their statutes, which they never kept in their own land. And so they entered in at the narrow passages of water of the Euphrates, and God showed tokens for them, and held still the flood till they were passed over: for through that country there was a great way, namely of a year and a half journey, for that same region is called Asareth. Then dwelt they there unto the latter time: and when they come forth again, the Highest shall hold still the springs of the stream again, that they may go through, therefore thou sawest the multitude with peace. And they that be left behind of thy people, are those that be found within my border. Now when he destroyeth the multitude that is gathered together, he shall defend his people that remain, and then shall he show them great wonders.
Then said I: O' Lord, Lord, show me this: wherefore have I seen the man coming up from the deep of the sea? And he said unto me: Like as thou canst neither seek out nor know these things that are in the deep of the sea, even so mayest thou not see my son, or those that be with him, but in the time of the day. This is the interpretation of the dream which thou sawest, therefore thou only art here lightened: for thou hast forsaken thine own law, and applied thy diligence unto mine, and sought it. Thy life thou hast ordered in wisdom, and hast called understanding your mother, and therefore have I showed thee the treasure of the Highest. After three days I will show thee more, and talk with thee at more large, yee heavy and wondrous things will I declare unto thee.
Then went I forth into the field, giving praise and thanks greatly unto God, because of his wonders which he did in time, and because he governeth the same, and such as is in time, and there I sat three days

THE GOSPELL OF ST. MATTHEW Chpt 25
When the son of man cometh in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the seat of his glory, and before him shall be gathered all nations. And he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth the sheep from the goats. And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, and the goats on the left. Then shall the King say to them on his right hand: Come ye blessed children of my father, inherit ye the kingdom prepared for you from the beginning of the world. For I was an hungered, and ye gave me meat. I thirsted, and ye gave me drink. I was harborless, and ye lodged me. I was naked and ye clothed me. I was sick and ye visited me. I was in prison and ye came unto me. Then shall the righteous answer him saying: master, when saw we thee an hungered, and fed thee? or a thirst, and gave thee drink? when saw we thee harborless, and lodged thee? or naked and clothed thee? or when saw we thee sick or in prison and came unto thee? And the king shall answer and say unto them: Verily I say unto you: in as much as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it to me.
Then shall the king say unto them that shall be on the left hand: depart from me ye cursed, into everlasting fire: which is prepared for the devil and his angels. For I was an hungered, and ye gave me no meat. I thirsted, and ye gave me no drink. I was harborless, and ye lodged me not. I was naked, and ye clothed me not. I was sick and in prison, and ye visited me not.
Then shall they also answer him saying: master, when saw we thee an hungered, or a thirst, or harborless, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister unto thee? Then shall he answer them and say: Verily I say unto you, in as much as ye did it not to one of the least of these, ye did it not to me. And these shall go into everlasting pain: And the righteous into life eternal
THE GOSPELL OF ST. MATTHEW Chpt 7
Judge not, that ye be not judged. For as ye judge so shall ye be judged. And with what measure ye *mete, with the same shall it be measured to you again. Why seest thou a *mote in thy brothers eye, and perceivest not the beam in thine own eye? Or why sayest thou to thy brother: suffer me to pluck out the mote out of thine eye, and behold a beam is in thine own eye. Hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye, and then shalt thou see clearly to pluck out the mote out of thy brothers eye.
Give not that which is holy, to dogs, neither cast ye your pearls before swine, lest they tread them under their feet, and the other turn again and all to rent you.
Ask and it shall be given you. Seek and ye shall find. Knock and it shall be opened unto you. For whosoever asketh receiveth, and he that seeketh findeth and to him that knocketh it shall be opened. Is there any man among you which if his son asked him bread, would offer him a stone? Or if he asked fish, would he proffer him a serpent? If ye then which are evil, can give to your children good gifts how much more shall your father which is in heaven give good things to them that ask him?
Therefore whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, even so do ye to them. This is the law and the Prophets.
Enter in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way that leadeth to destruction: and many there be which go in thereat. But strait is the gate, and narrow is the way which leadeth unto life: and few there be that find it. Beware of false Prophets, which come to you in sheeps clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns? Or figs of briars? Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit. But a corrupt tree, bringeth forth evil fruit. A good tree cannot bring forth bad fruite: nor yet a bad tree can bring forth good fruit. Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit, shall be hewn down, and cast into the fire. Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.
Not all they that say unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter in to the kingdom of heaven: but he that doth my fathers will which is in heaven. Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not in thy name Prophesied? And in thy name have cast out devils? And in thy name have done many miracles? And then will I knowledge unto them that I never knew them. Depart from me, ye workers of iniquity.
Whosoever heareth of me these sayings and doeth the same, I will liken him unto a wise man which built his house on a rock: and abundance of rain descended, and the floods came and the winds blew and beat upon that same house, and it fell not, because it was grounded on the rock. And whosoever heareth of me these sayings and doth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man which built his house upon the land: and abundance of rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat upon that house, and it fell, and great was the fall of it.
And it came to pass, that when Jesus had ended these sayings, the people were *astonied at his doctrine. For he taught them as one having power, and not as the scribes
*mete: what ever is used to measure, *mote: a speck. *astonied: astounded, astonished.
TO THE PHILIPPIANS Chpt 3
Moreover, my brethren rejoice in the Lord. It grieveth me not to write one thing often to you. For to you it is a sure thing. Beware of dogs, beware of evil workers. Beware of dissension. For we are circumcision which worship God in the spirit, and rejoice in Christ *Jesu, and have no confidence in the flesh: though I have whereof I might rejoice in the flesh. If any other man thinketh that he hath whereof he might trust in the flesh: much more I: circumcised the eighth day, of the kindred of Israel, of the tribe of Benjamin, an Hebrew born of the Hebrews: as concerning the law, a Pharisee, and as concerning ferventness, I persecuted the congregation, and as touching the righteousness which is in the law I was unrebukable.
THE REVELATION OF ST JOHN Chpt 22
And he said unto me: seal not the sayings of the prophesy of this book. For the time is at hand. He that doth evil, let him do evil still: and he which is filthy, let him be filthy still: and he that is righteous, let him be more righteous: and he that is holy, let him be more holy. And behold I come shortly, and my reward with me, to give every man according as his deeds shall be. I am Alpha and Omega the beginning and the end: the first and the last. Blessed are they that do his commandments, that their power may be in the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city. For without shall be dogs and enchanters and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth or maketh leasings.
I Jesus sent mine angel, to testify unto you these things in the congregations. I am the root and the generation of David, and the bright morning star. And the spirit and the bride said come. And let him that heareth, say also, come. And let him that is a thirst, come. And let whosoever will, take of the water of life, free.
I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book: *If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book. And if any man shall minish of the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from those things which are written in this book. He which testifieth these things saith: be it, I come quickly, Amen.
Even so: come Lord Jesu.
The grace of our Lord Jesu Christ be with you all:
*If any man shall add unto these things...And if any man shall minish of the words ... discern for yourselves ...the 100's and 100's of dieverse "bibles of man".
THE FIRST EPISTLE OF ST. PETER Chpt 2
Wherefore lay aside all *maliciousness and all *guile, and dissimulation, and envy, and all backbiting: and as new born babes, desire that reasonable milk, which is without corruption, that ye may be grown therin. If so be that ye have tasted how pleasant the Lord is, to whom ye come as unto a living stone disallowed of men, but chosen of God and precious: and ye as living stones, are made a spiritual house, and an holy priesthood for to offer up spiritual sacrifice, acceptable to God by Jesus Christ.
Wherefore it is contained in the scripture: behold I put in Sion an head corner stone, elect and precious: and he that believeth on him, shall not be ashamed. Unto you therefore which believe, he is precious: but unto them which believe not, the stone which the builders refused, the same is made the head stone in the corner, and a stone to stumble at, and a rock to offend them which stumble at the word, and believe not that whereon they were set. But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, and a peculiar people, that ye should show the vertues of him that called you out of darkness into his marvelous light, which in time past were not a people, yet are now the people of God: which were not under mercy, but now have obtained mercy.
Dearly beloved, I beseech you as strangers and pilgrims, abstain from fleshly lusts, which fight against the soul, and see that ye have honest conversation among the Gentiles, that they which backbite you as evil doers, may see your good works and praise God in the day of visitation.
Submit yourselves unto all manner ordinance of man for the Lords sake, whether it be unto the King as unto the chief head: *other unto rulers, as unto them that are sent of him, for the punishment of evil doers: but for the *laud of them that do well. For so is the will of God, that ye put to silence the ignorance of the foolish men: as free, and not as having the liberty for a cloak of maliciousness, but even as the servants of God. Honour all men. Love brotherly fellowship. Fear God and honour the king.
Servants obey your masters with all fear, not only if they be good and courteous: but also though they be *froward. For it is thankworthy if a man for conscience toward God endure grief, suffering wrongfully. For what praise is it, if when ye be buffeted for your faults, ye take it patiently? But and if when ye do well, ye suffer wrong and take it patiently, then is there thank with God.
For hereunto verily were ye called: for Christ also suffered for us, leaving us an example that ye should follow his steps, which did no sin, neither was there guile found in his mouth: which when he was reviled, reviled not again: when he suffered, he threatened not: but committed the cause to him that judgeth righteously, which his own self bare our sins in his body on the tree, that we should be delivered from sin and should live in righteousness. By whose stripes ye were healed. For ye were as sheep going astray: but are now returned unto the shepherd and bishop of your souls
*maliciousness (unkindness against another) *guile(deception), *other (or)
*laud (honor) *froward: stubborn, contrary, disobedient.
THE EPISTLE OF JUDAS Chpt 1
Judas the servant of Jesus Christ, the brother of James. To them which are called and sanctified in God the father, and preserved in *Jesu Christ. Mercy unto you and peace and love be multiplied.
Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation it was needful for me to write unto you, to exhort you, that ye should continually labour in the faith which was once given unto the saints. For there are certain craftily crept in, of which it was written a fore time unto such judgement. They are ungodly and turn the grace of our God unto wantonness, and deny God the only Lord, and our Lord Jesus Christ.
My mind is therefore to put you in remembrance, for as much as ye once know this how that the Lord (after that he had delivered the people out of Egypt) destroyed them which afterward believed not. The angels also which kept not their first estate: but left their own habitation: he hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day: even as Sodom and Gomor, and the cities about them (which in like manner defiled them selves with fornication, and followed strange flesh) are set forth for an example, and suffer the vengeance of eternal fire. Likewise these dreamers defile the flesh, despise rulers and speak evil of them that are in authority.
Michael the archangel when he strove against the devil, and disputed the body of Moses, durst not give railing sentence, but said: the Lord rebuke thee. But these speak evil of those things which they know not: and what things they know naturally, as beasts which are without reason, in those things they corrupt themselves. Woe be unto them, for they have followed the way of Cain and are utterly given to the error of Balaam for *lucres sake, and in the treason of Core.
These are spots which of your kindness feast together, without fear, feeding themselves. Clouds they are without water, carried about of winds, and trees with out fruit at gathering time, twice dead and plucked up by the roots. They are raging waves of the sea, foaming out their own shame. They are wandering stars to whom is reserved the mist of darkness for ever.
Enoch the seventh from Adam prophesied before of such, saying. Behold, the Lord shall come with thousands of saints, to give judgement against all men, and to rebuke all that are ungodly among them of all their ungodly deeds, which they have ungodly committed, and of all their cruel speakings, which ungodly sinners have spoken against him.
These are murmurers, complainers, walking after their own lusts, whose mouths speak proud things. They have men in great reverence because of advantage. But ye beloved, remember the words which were spoken before of the Apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ, how that they told you that there should be beguilers in the last time which should walk after their own ungodly lusts. These are makers of sects, fleshly, having no spirit.
But ye dearly beloved, edify your selves in your most holy faith, praying in the holy ghost, and keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ, unto eternal life. And have compassion on some, separating them: and other save with fear, pulling them out of the fire, and hate the filthy vesture of the flesh.
Unto him that is able to keep you, that ye fall not, and to present you faultless before the presence of his glory with joy, that is to say, to God our saviour which only is wise, be glory, majesty, dominion, and power, now and for ever. Amen
*Jesu: Hebrew for Jesus. *lucres: shameful gain
THE REVELATION OF ST JOHN Chpt 2
Unto the messenger of the congregation of Ephesus write: These things saith he that holdeth the seven stars in his right hand, and walketh in the midst of the seven golden candlesticks. I know thy works, and thy labour, and thy patience, and how thou canst not forbear them which are evil: and examinedst them which say they are Apostles, and are not: and hast found them liars and didst wash thy self. And hast patience: and for my names sake hast laboured and hast not fainted. Nevertheless I have somewhat against thee, for thou hast left thy first love. Remember therefore from whence thou art fallen, and repent, and do the first works. Or else I will come unto thee shortly, and will remove thy candlestick out of his place, except thou repent. But this thou hast because thou hatest the deeds of the Nicolaitans, which deeds I also hate. Let him that hath ears hear, what the spirit saith unto the congregations. To him that overcometh, will I give to eat of the tree of life, which is in the midst of the Paradise of God.
THE REVELATION OF ST JOHN Chpt 6
And I beheld when he opened the sixth seal, and lo there was a great earthquake and the *sun was as black as sack cloth made of hair. And the moon waxed even as blood: and the stars of heaven fell unto the earth even as a fig tree casteth from her, her figs, when she is shaken of a mighty wind. And heaven vanished away, as a scroll when it is rolled together. And all mountains and isles, were moved out of their places. And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bondman, and every free man, hid themselves in dens, and in rocks of the hills: and said to the hills and rocks: fall on us, and hide us from the presence of him that sitteth on the seat, and from the wrath of the lamb: for the great day of his wrath is come, and who can endure it.
THE REVELATION OF ST JOHN Chpt 7
And after that, I saw four angels stand on the four corners of the earth, holding the four winds of the earth, that the winds should not blow on the earth, neither on the sea, neither on any tree. And I saw another angel ascend from the rising of the *sun: which had the seal of the living God, and he cried with a loud voice to the four angels (to whom power was given to hurt the earth and the sea) saying: Hurt not the earth neither the sea, neither the trees, till we have sealed the servants of our God in their foreheads.
And I heard the number of them which were sealed, and there were sealed an hundred and forty four thousand of all the tribes of the children of Israel. Of the tribe of Juda were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Reuben were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Gad were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Aser were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Nephtalim were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Manasses were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Simeon were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Levi were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Isacar were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Zabulon were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Joseph were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Benjamin were sealed twelve thousand.
After this I beheld, and lo a great multitude (which no man could number) of all nations and people, and tongues, stood before the seat, and before the lamb, clothed with long white garments, and palms in their hands, and cried with a loud voice, saying: salvation be ascribed to him that sitteth upon the seat of our God, and unto the lamb. And all the angels stood in the compass of the seat, and of the elders and of the four beasts, and fell before the seat on their faces, and worshipped God, saying, Amen: Blessing and glory wisdom and thanks, and honour, and power, and might, be unto our God for evermore. Amen.
And one of the elders answered, saying unto me: what are these which are arrayed in long white garments, and whence came they? And I said unto him: Lord thou *wettest. And he said unto me: these are they which came out of great tribulation and made their garments large, and made them white in the blood of the lamb: therefore are they in the presence of the seat of God and serve him day and night in his temple, and he that sitteth in the seat will dwell among them. They shall hunger no more neither thirst, neither shall the sun light on them, neither any heat. For the lamb which is in the midst of the seat, shall feed them, and shall lead them unto fountains of living water, and God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes
*again sun: this is sun, spelled originally sunne. *wettest: more over to know sharply.
THE REVELATION OF ST JOHN Chpt 8
And when he had opened the seventh seal, there was silence in heaven about the space of half an hour. And I saw angels standing before God, and to them were given seven trumpets. And another angel came and stood before the altar having a golden censer, and much of odors was given unto him, that he should offer of the prayers of all saints upon the golden altar, which was before the seat. And the smoke of the odors which came of the prayers of all saints, ascended up before God out of the Angels hand. And the Angel took the censer and filled it with fire of the altar and cast it into the earth, and voices were made, and thunderings and lightnings, and earthquake.
And the seven Angels which had the seven trumpets prepared themselves to blow. The first Angel blew, and there was made hail and fire, which were mingled with blood, and they were cast into the earth: and the third part of trees was burnt, and all green grass was burnt. And the second Angel blew: and as it were a great mountain: burning with fire was cast into the sea, and the third part of the sea turned to blood, and the third part of the creatures which had life, died, and the third part of ships were destroyed.
And the third Angel blew, and there fell a great star from heaven burning as it were a lamp, and it fell into the third part of the rivers, and into fountains of waters, and the name of the star is called wormwood. And the third part was turned to wormwood. And many men died of the waters because they were made bitter. And the fourth Angel blew, and the third part of the sun was smitten, and the third part of the moon, and the third part of stars: so that the third part of them was darkened. And the day was smitten that the third part of it should not shine, and likewise the night. And I beheld and heard an Angel flying through the midst of heaven, saying with a loud voice: Woe, woe, to the inhabiters of the earth because of the voices to come of the trumpet of the three Angels which were yet to blow
THE REVELATION OF ST JOHN Chpt 9
And the fifth Angel blew, and I saw a star fall from heaven unto the earth. And to him was given the key of the bottomless pit. And he opened the bottomless pit, and there arose the smoke of a great furnace. And the sun and the air were darkened by the reason of the smoke of the pit. And there came out of the smoke locusts upon the earth: and unto them was given power as the scorpions of the earth have power. And it was commanded them, that they should not hurt the grass of the earth: neither any green thing: neither any tree: but only those men which have not the seal in their foreheads. And to them was commanded that they should not kill them, but that they should be vexed five months, and their pain was as the pain that cometh of a scorpion, when he hath stung a man. And in those days shall men seek death, and shall not find it, and shall desire to die, and death shall fly from them.
And the similitude of the locusts was like unto horses prepared unto battle, and on their heads were as it were crowns, like unto gold: and their faces were as it had been the faces of men. And they had hair as the hair of women. And their teeth were as the teeth of lions. And they had habergeons, as it were habergeons of iron. And the sound of their wings, was as the sound of chariots when many horses run together to battle: And they had tails like unto scorpions, and there were stings in their tails. And their power was to hurt men five months. And they had a king over them, which is the angel of the bottomless pit, whose name in the Hebrew tongue, is Abadon: but in the Greek tongue, Apollion. One woe is past, and behold two woes come after this.
And the sixth Angel blew, and I heard a voice from the four corners of the golden altar, which is before God, saying to the sixth angel, which had the trumpet: Loose the four Angels, which are bound in the great river Euphrates. And the four Angels were loosed which were prepared for an hour, for a day, for a month, and for a year, for to slay the third part of men. And the number of horsemen of war, were twenty times ten thousand. And I heard the number of them: And thus I saw the horses in a vision, and them that sat on them having fiery habergeons of a Jacinth colour, and brimstone, and the heads of the horses were as the heads of lions. And out of their mouths went forth fire and smoke and brimstone. And of these three was the third part of men killed: that is to say, of fire, smoke, and brimstone, which proceeded out of the mouths of them: For their power was in their mouths and in their tails: for their tails were like unto serpents, and had heads, and with them they did hurt: And the remnant of the men which were not killed by these plagues, repented not of the deeds of their hands that they should not worship devils, and images of gold, and silver, and brass, and stone, and of wood, which neither can see, neither hear, neither go. Also they repented not of their murder, and of their sorcery neither of their fornication neither of their theft.
THE REVELATION OF ST JOHN Chpt 11
And then was given me a reed, like unto a rod, and it was said unto me: Rise and meet the temple of God, and the altar, and them that worship therein, and the *quere which is within the temple, cast out and meet it not: for it is given unto the Gentiles, and the holy city shall they tread under foot forty two months. And I will give power unto my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy one thousand, two hundred and sixty days, clothed in sack cloth. These are two olive trees, and two candlesticks, standing before the God of the earth.
And if any man will hurt them, fire shall proceed out of their mouths, and consume their enemies. And if any man will hurt them this wise must he be killed. These have power to shut heaven, that it rain not in the days of their prophesying: and have power over waters to turn them to blood, and to smite the earth with all manner plagues, as often as they will.
And when they have finished their testimony, the beast that came out of the bottomless pit, shall make war against them and shall overcome them, and kill them. And their bodies shall lie in the streets of the great city, which spiritually is called *Zodom and Eygpt, where our Lord was crucified. And they of the people and kindreds, and tongues, and they of the nations, shall see their bodies three days and an half, and shall not *suffer their bodies to be put in graves. And they that dwell upon the earth, shall rejoice over them and be glad, and shall send gifts one to another for these two Prophets vexed them that dwelt on the earth.
And after three days and an half the spirit of life from God, entered into them. And they stood up upon their feet: and great fear came upon them which saw them. And they heard a great voice from heaven, saying unto them. Come up hither. And they ascended up into heaven in a cloud, and their enemies saw them. And the same hour was there a great earthquake, and the tenth part of the city fell, and in the earthquake were slain names of men seven thousand and the remnant were feared, and gave glory to God of heaven. The second woe is past, and third woe will come *anon.
And the seventh angel blew, and there were made great voices in heaven, saying: the kingdoms of this world are our Lords and his Christs, and he shall reign for evermore. And the twenty four elders, which sit before God on their seats, fell upon their faces, and worshipped God saying: we give thee thanks Lord God almighty: which art and wast, and art to come, for thou hast received thy great might, and hast reigned. And the nations were angry, and thy wrath is come, and the time of the dead that they should be judged and that thou shouldest give reward unto thy servants the Prophets and Saints, and to them that fear thy name small and great and shouldest destroy them, which destroy the earth. And the temple of God was opened in heaven, and there was seen in his temple, the ark of his testament: and there followed lightnings, and voices, and thunderings and earthquake, and much hail
*Zodom (Sodom) *suffer (allow) *anon (shortly). *quere : place of asking ...where petitions are heard.
THE REVELATION OF ST JOHN Chpt 21
And I saw a new heaven and a new earth. For the first heaven, and the first earth were vanished away, and there was no more sea. And I John saw that holy city new Jerusalem come down from God out of heaven prepared as a bride garnished for her husband. And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying: behold the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them. And they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them and be their God. And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes. And there shall be no more death, neither sorrow neither crying, neither shall there be any more pain, for the old things are gone. And he that sat upon the seat, said. Behold I make all things new. And he said unto me: write, for these words are faithful and true.
And he said unto me: it is done, I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give to him that is a thirst of the well of the water of life, free. He that overcometh, shall inherit all things, and I will be his God, and he shall be my son. But the fearful and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone, which is the second death.
And there came unto me one of the seven Angels which had the seven vials full of the seven last plagues: and talked with me saying: come hither, I will show thee the bride, the lambs wife. And he carried me away in the spirit to a great and an high mountain, and he showed me the great city, holy Jerusalem descending out of heaven from God, having the brightness of God. And her shining was like unto a stone most precious, even a Jasper clear as Crystal: and had walls great and high, and had twelve gates, and at the gates twelve Angels: and names written, which are the twelve tribes of Israel: on the East part three gates, and on the North side three gates, and towards the South three gates, and from the west three gates: and the wall of the city had twelve foundations, and in them the names of the lambs twelve apostles.
And he that talked with me, had a golden reed to measure the city with all and the gates thereof and the wall thereof. And the city was built four square and the length was as large as the breadth of it, and he measured the city with the reed twelve thousand furlongs: and the length and the breadth, and the height of it, were equal. And he measured the wall thereof an hundred and forty four cubits: the measure that the angel had was after the measure that man useth. And the building of the wall of it was of Jasper. And the city was pure gold like unto clear glass and the foundations of the wall of the city was garnished with all manner of precious stones. The first foundation was Jasper, the second Sapphire, the third a Chalcedony, the fourth an Emerald: the fifth Sardonyx: the sixth Sardeos: the seventh Chrysolite: the eighth Berall: the ninth a Topas: the tenth a Crysoprasos: the eleventh a Jacincte: the twelfth an Amatist.
The twelve gates were twelve pearls, every gate was of one pearl, and the street of the city was pure gold, as through shining glass. And there was no temple therein. For the Lord God almighty and the lamb are the temple of it. and the city hath no need of the *son neither of the moon to lighten it. For the brightness of God did light it: and the lamb was the light of it. And the people which are saved shall walk in the light of it: and the kings of the earth shall bring their glory unto it. And the gates of it are not shut by day. For there shall be no night there. And there shall enter into it none unclean thing: neither what soever worketh abomination or maketh lies: but they only which are written in the lambs book of life
*son: exactly as it appears; sonne other places see that sun was spelled sunne in the original.
