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.

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.
SECOND BOOK OF MOSES Chpt 19
The third month after the children of Israel were gone out of Egypt: the same day they came into the wilderness of Sinai. For they were departed from Raphidim, and were come to the desert of Sinai and had pitched their tents in the wilderness. And there Israel pitched before the mount. And Moses went up unto God. And the Lord called to him out of the mountain saying: thus say unto the house of Jacob, and tell the children of Israel: Ye have seen what I did unto the Egyptians and how I took you up upon eagles wings, and have brought you unto myself. Now therefore if ye will hear my voice and keep mine appointment: ye shall be mine own above all nations, for all the earth is mine. Ye shall be unto me a kingdom of priests and an holy people: these are the words which thou shalt say unto the children of Israel.
FIFTH BOOK OF MOSES Chpt 28
And the Lord shall bring a nation upon thee from afar, even from the end of the world, as swift as an eagle flieth: a nation whose tongue thou shalt not understand: a hard favored nation which shall not regard the person of the old nor have compassion on the young. And he shall eat the fruit of thy land and the fruit of thy cattle until he have destroyed thee: so that he shall leave thee neither corn, wine, nor oil, neither the increase of thine oxen nor the flocks of thy sheep: until he have brought thee to nought. And he shall keep thee in all thy cities, until thy high and strong walls be come down wherein thou trusted, through all thy land. And he shall besiege thee in all thy cities throughout all thy land which the Lord thy God hath given thee.
And thou shalt eat the fruit of thine own body: the flesh of thy sons and of thy daughters which the Lord thy God hath given thee, in that straightness and siege wherewith thine enemy shall besiege thee: so that it shall grieve the man that is tender and exceeding delicate among you, to look on his brother and upon his wife that lieth in his bosom and on the remnant of his children, which he hath yet left, for fear of giving unto any of them of the flesh of his children, which he eateth, because he hath nought left him in that straightness and siege wherewith thine enemy shall besiege thee in all thy cities.
Yea and the woman that is so tender and delicate among you that she dare not adventure to set the sole of her foot upon the ground for softness and tenderness, shall be grieved to look on the husband that lieth in her bosom and on her son and on her daughter: even because of the afterbirth, that is come out from between her legs, and because of her children which she hath borne, because she would eat them for need of all things secretly, in the straightness and siege wherewith thine enemy shall besiege thee in thy cities.
If thou wilt not be diligent to do all the words of this law that are written in this book, for to fear this glorious and fearful name of the Lord thy God: the Lord will smite both thee and thy seed with wonderful plagues and with great plagues and of long continuance, and with evil sicknesses and of long durance. Moreover he will bring upon thee all the diseases of Egypt which thou wast afraid of, and they shall cleave unto thee. Thereto all manner sicknesses and all manner plagues which are not written in the book of this law, will the Lord bring upon thee until thou be come to nought. And ye shall be left few in number, wheretofore ye were as the stars of heaven in multitude: because thou wouldest not hearken unto the voice of the Lord thy God.
And as the Lord rejoiced over you to do you good and to multiply you: even so he will rejoice over you, to destroy you and to bring you to nought. And ye shall be wasted from off the land whither thou goest to enjoy it. And the Lord shall scatter thee among all nations from the one end of the world unto the other, and there thou shalt serve strange gods, which neither thou nor thy fathers have known: even wood and stone.
And among these nations thou shalt be no small season, and yet shalt have no rest for the sole of thy foot. For the Lord shall give thee there a trembling heart and dazing eyes and sorrow of mind. And thy life shall hang before thee, and thou shalt fear both day and night and shalt have no trust in thy life. In the morning thou shalt say, would God it were night. And at night thou shalt say, would God it were morning. For fear of thine heart which thou shalt fear, and for the sight of thine eyes which thou shalt see.
And the Lord shall bring thee into Egypt again with ships, by the way which I bade thee that thou shouldst see it no more. And there ye shall be sold unto your enemies, for bondmen and bondwomen: and yet no man shall buy you

FIFTH BOOK OF MOSES Chpt 32
Hear O' heaven, what I shall speak and hear O' earth the words of my mouth. My doctrine drop as doth the rain, and my speech flow as doth the dew, as the mizzling upon the herbs, and as the drops upon the grass. For I will call on the name of the Lord: Magnify the might of our God.
He is a rock and perfect are his deeds, for all his ways are with discretion. God is faithful and without wickedness, both righteous and just is he.
The froward and overthwart generation hath marred themselves to himward, and are not his sons for their deformities sake. Dost thou so reward the Lord? O' foolish nation and unwise. Is not he thy father and thine owner? hath he not made thee and ordained thee? Remember the days that are past: consider the years from time to time. Ask thy father and he will shew thee, thine elders and they will tell thee. When the most highest gave the nations an inheritance, and divided the sons of Adam, he put the borders of the nations, fast by the multitude of the children of Israel.
For the Lords part is his folk, and Israel is the portion of his inheritance.
He found him in a desert land, in a void ground and a roaring wilderness. He led him about and gave him understanding, and kept him as the apple of his eye.
As an eagle that stirreth up her nest and fluttereth over her young, he stretched out his wings and took him up and bare him on his shoulders. The Lord alone was his guide, and there was no strange God with him.
He set him up upon an high land, and he ate the increase of the fields. And he gave him honey to suck out of the rock, and oil out of the hard stone. With butter of the kine and milk of the sheep, with fat of the lambs and fat rams and he goats with fat kidneys and with wheat. And of the blood of grapes thou drunkest wine.
And Israel waxed fat and kicked. Thou wast fat, thick and smooth. And he let God go that made him and despised the rock that saved him. They angered him with strange Gods and with abominations provoked him. They offered unto field devils and not to God, and to Gods which they knew not and to new Gods that came newly up which their fathers feared not. Of the rock that begat thee thou art unmindful and hast forgot God that made thee. And when the Lord saw it, he was angry because of the provoking of his sons and daughters.
And he said: I will hide my face from them and will see what their end shall be. For they are a froward generation and children in whom is no faith. They have angered me with that which is no God, and provoked me with their vanities. And I again will anger them with them which are no people, and will provoke them with a foolish nation. For fire is kindled in my wrath, and shall burn unto the bottom of hell. And shall consume the earth with her increase, and set afire the bottoms of the mountains. I will heap mischiefs upon thee and will spend all mine arrows at them.
Burnt with hunger and consumed with heat and with bitter pestilence. I will also send the teeth of beasts upon them and poison serpents. Without forth, the sword shall rob them of their children: and within in the chamber, fear: both young men and young women and the sucklings with the men of gray heads. I have determined to scatter them throughout the world, and to make away the remembrance of them from among men. Were it not that I feared the railing of their enemies, lest their adversaries would be proud and say: our high hand hath done all these works and not the Lord.
For it is a nation that hath an unhappy forecast, and hath no understanding in them: I would they were wise and understood this and would consider their latter end.
How it cometh that one shall chase a thousand, and two put ten thousand of them to flight: except their rock had sold them, and because the Lord had delivered them.
For our rock is not as their rock, no though our enemies be judge. But their vines are of the vines of Sodom, and of the fields of Gomorra. Their grapes are grapes of gall, and their clusters be bitter.
Their wine is the poison of dragons, and the cruel gall of asps. Are not such things laid in store with me, and sealed up among my treasures? Vengeance is mine and I will reward: their feet shall slide, when the time cometh. For the time of their destruction is at hand, and the time that shall come upon them maketh haste.
For the Lord will do justice unto his people, and have compassion on his servants. For it shall be seen that their power shall fail, and at the last they shall be prisoned and forsaken.
And it shall be said: where are their Gods and their rock wherein they trusted?
The fat of whose sacrifices they ate, and drank the wine of their drinkofferings, let them rise up and help you and be your protection.
See now how that I, I am he, and that there is no God but I. I can kill and make alive, and what I have smitten that I can heal: neither is there that can deliver any man out of my hand.
For I will lift up my hand to heaven, and will say: I live ever.
If I whet the lightning of my sword, and mine hand take in hand to do justice, I will shew vengeance on mine enemies and will reward them that hate me.
I will make mine arrows drunken with blood, and my sword shall eat flesh of the blood of the slain and of the captive and of the bare head of the enemy.
Praise ye heathen his people, for he will avenge the blood of his servants, and will avenge him of his adversaries, and will be merciful unto the land of his people.
And Moses went and spake all the words of this song in the ears of the people, both he and Josua the son of Nun. And when Moses had spoken all these words unto the end to all Israel, then he said unto them. Set your hearts unto all the words which I testify unto you this day: that ye command them unto your children, to observe and do all the words of this law. For it is not a vain word unto you: but it is your life, and through this word ye shall prolong your days in the land whither ye go over Jordan to conquer it.
And the Lord spake unto Moses the self same day saying: get thee up into this mountain Abarim unto mount Nebo, which is in the land of Moab over against Jericho. And behold the land of Canaan which I give unto the children of Israel to possess. And die in the mount which thou goest upon, and be gathered unto thy people: As Aaron thy brother died in mount Hor and was gathered unto his people. For ye trespassed against me among the children of Israel at the waters of strife, at Cades in the wilderness of Zin: because ye sanctified me not among the children of Israel. Thou shalt see the land before thee, but shall not go thither unto the land which I give the children of Israel
Then spake the Lord unto Job out of the storm, and said: What is he that hideth his mind with foolish words? Gird up thy loins like a man, for I will question thee, see thou give me a direct answer.
JOB Chpt 39
Cometh it through thy wisdom, that the Goshawk flyeth toward the South? Doth the eagle mount up, and make her nest on high, at thy commandment? He abideth in the stoney rocks, and upon the high tops of hard mountains, where no man can come. From thence may he behold his pray, and look far about with his eyes. His young ones are feed with blood, and where any dead body layeth, there he is immediately.
Moreover, God spake unto Job and said: Can he that striveth with the almighty, be at rest? Should not he which disputeth with God, give him an answer? Job answered the Lord, saying: Behold, I am too vile a person, to answer thee, therefore will I lay my hand upon my mouth. Once or twice have I spoken, but I will say no more
THE PSALMS Chpt 103
Praise the Lord, O' my soul, and all that is within me praise his holy name.
Praise the Lord, O' my soul, and forget not all his benefits.
Which forgiveth all thy sins, and healeth all thy infirmities.Which saveth thy life from destruction, and crowneth thee with mercy, and lovingkindness. Which satisfieth thy desire with good things, making thee young and lusty as an eagle.
The Lord executeth righteousness and judgment, for all them that suffer wrong.
He showed his ways unto Moses, and his works unto the children of Israel.
The Lord is full of compassion and mercy, *longsuffering, and of great goodness.
He will not always be chiding, neither will he keep his anger forever. He hath not dealt with us after our sins, nor rewarded us according to our wickedness.
For look how high the heaven is in comparison of the earth, so great is his mercy also toward them that fear him. Look how wide the east is from the west, so far hath he set our sins from us. Yee like as a father pitieth his own children, even so is the Lord merciful unto them that fear him.
For he knoweth whereof we be made, he remembereth that we are but dust.
That a man in his time is but as grass, and florisheth as a flower of the field.
For as soon as the wind goeth over it, it is gone, and the place thereof knoweth it no more. But the merciful goodness of the Lord endureth for ever and ever, upon them that fear him, and his righteousness upon their childrens children.
Such as keep his covenant, and think upon his commandments to do them.
The Lord hath preserved his seat in heavens, and his kingdom ruleth over all.
O' praise the Lord ye angels of his, ye that be mighty in strength, fulfilling his commandment that men may hear the voice of his words.
O' praise the Lord all ye his Hosts, ye servants of his, that do his pleasure.
O' speak good of the Lord all ye works of his, in every place of his dominion: praise thou the Lord, O' my soul.
*The Lord is longsuffering which is more than patience: for he not only suffereth but also discerneth vengeance, defying the amendment of the sinner, loving better to pardon and forgive than to punish. MN
THE PROVERBS Chpt 23
When thou sittest at the table to eat with a Lord, order thyself mannerly with the things that are set before thee.
Measure thine appetite: and if thou wilt rule thy own self, be not over greedy with his meat, for meat beguileth and decieveth.
Take not over great travail and labor to be rich, beware of such a purpose.
Why wilt thou set thine eye upon the thing, which suddenly vanisheth away?
For riches make themselves wings, and take their flight like an eagle into the air.
Eat not thou with the envious, and desire not his meat, for he hath a *marvelous heart.
He sayeth unto thee: eat and drink, whereas his heart is not with thee.
Yee the morsels that thou hast eaten shalt thou *perbrake and *lese those sweet words.
Tell nothing into the ears of a fool, for he will despise the wisdom of thy words.
*marvelous heart. * that is a heart that marvels at the works of man, worldly things. RN
*perbrake : to vomit up. perbrake = per; each one, break ; expel. *lese = 1) lose 2) lease; rent out the mouth 3) an insult to his truth. *Labor for to get the truth: * kjv and other bibles of man =Buy the truth: and sell it not
THE PROVERBS Chpt 30
There are three things that are never satisfied, and the fourth sayeth never hoo. The hell, a womans womb, and the earth hath never water enough. As for fire, it sayeth never, *hoo. Whoso laugheth his father to scorn, and setteth his mothers commandment to naught: the ravens pick out his eyes in the valley, and devoured be he of the young eagles.
There be three things too high for me, and as for the fourth, it passeth my knowledge. The way of an eagle in the air, the way of a serpent over a stone, the way of a ship in sea, and the way of a man with a young woman. Such is the way of an wife that breaketh wedlock, which wipeth her mouth like as when she hath eaten, and saith. As for me, I have done no harm. Through three things the earth is disquieted, and the fourth may it not bear: Through a servant that beareth rule, through a fool that hath great riches, through an idle housewife, and through an handmaiden that is heir to her mistress.
There be four things in the earth, the which are very little: but in wisdom they exceed the wise. The *Emmettes are but a weak people, yet gather they their meat in the harvest. The conies are but a feeble folk, yet make they their couches among the rocks. The grasshoppers have not a guide, yet go they forth together by heaps. The spider laboreth with her hands, and that in the Kings palace.
There be three things that go stiffly, but the going of the fourth is the godliest of all. A Lion which is King of beasts, and giveth place to no man: A cock ready to fight: A ram and a King that goeth forth with his people. If thou be so foolish to imagine thyself, or meddlest with any such thing, then lay thine hand upon thy mouth. Who so churneth milk, maketh butter: he that rubbeth his nose, maketh it bleed: and he that causeth wrath, bringeth forth strife

JEREMIE or JEREMIAH Chpt 4
O Israel, if thou wilt turn thee, then turn unto me, saith the Lord. And if thou wilt put away thine abominations out of my sight, thou shalt not be moved: And shalt swear: The Lord liveth: in truth, in equity and righteousness: and all people shall be fortuable and joyful in him. For thus saith the Lord, to all Judah and Jerusalem: plow your land, and sow not among the thorns.
Be circumcised in the Lord, and cut away the foreskin of your heart, all ye of Judah, and all the indwellers of Jerusalem: that my indignation break not out like fire and kindle, so that no man can quench it, because of the wickedness of your imaginations.
Preach in Judah and Jerusalem, cry out and speak: Blow the trumpets in the land, cry that every man may hear, and say: Gather you together, and we will go into the strong cities. Set up the token in Sion, speed you, and make no tarrying: for I will bring a great plague, and a great destruction from the north. For the spoiler of the Gentiles is broken up from his place, as a lion out of his den, that he may make the land waste, and destroy the cities, so that no man may dwell therin. Wherefore gird yourselves about with sackcloth, mourn and weep for the fearful wrath of the Lord shall not be withdrawn from you.
At the same time ( saith the Lord ) the heart of the king and of the princes shall be gone, the priests shall be astonished, and the prophets shall be sore afraid. Then said I, O' Lord God, hast thou deceived this people and Jerusalem, saying: Ye shall have peace, and now the sword goeth through their lives? Then shall it be said to the people and to Jerusalem: there cometh a warm wind from the north through the way of my people, but neither to fan nor to cleanse.
After that shall there come unto me a strong wind, and then will I give sentence upon them. For lo, he cometh down as a cloud, and his chariots are like a stormy wind: his horsemen are swifter than the eagle. Woe unto us, for we are destroyed. O Jerusalem, wash thine heart from wickedness, that thou mayest be helped. How long shall thy noisesome thoughts remain with thee?
For a voice from Dan and from the hill of Ephraim speaketh out, and telleth of a destruction. Behold the Heathen give Jerusalem a warning, and preach unto her, that her destroyers are coming from far countries. They tell the cities of Juda the same also, they shall give them warning in every place, like as watchmen in the field. For they have provoked me to wrath, saith the Lord.
Thy ways and thy thoughts, have brought thee unto this, this is thy own wickedness and disobedience, that hath possessed thine heart: Ah my belly, Ah my belly ( shalt thou cry) how is my heart so sore? my heart panteth within me, I cannot be still, for I have heard the crying of the trumpets, and the peals of war.
They cry murder upon murder, the whole land shall perish. Immediately my tents were destroyed, and my hangings in the twinkling of an eye. How long shall I see the tokens of war, and hear the noise of the trumpets.
Nevertheless this shall come upon them because my people is become foolish, and hath utterly no understanding. They are the children of foolishness, and without any discretion. To do evil, they have wit enough: but to do well, they have no wisdom. I have looked upon the earth, and see, it is waste and void. I looked toward heaven, and it had no shine.
I beheld the mountains, and they tremble, and all the hills were in fear. I looked about me, and there was nobody, and all the birds of the air were away. I marked well, and the plowed field was become waste: yee all their cities were broken down at the presence of the Lord, and indignation of his wrath.
For thus hath the Lord said: The whole land shall be desolate, yet will I not have then done. And therefore let the earth mourn, and let the heaven be sorry above: for the things that I have purposed and taken upon me to do, shall not repent me, and I will not go from it. The whole land shall flee, for the noise of the horsemen and bowmen: they shall run into dens in to woods, and climb up the stony rocks. All the cities shall be void, and no man dwelling therein.
What wilt thou now do, thou being destroyed? For though thou clothest thyself with scarlet, and deckest thee with gold: though thou paintest thy face with colors, yet shalt thou trim thyself in vain.
For those that hitherto have been thy great favorers, shall abhor thee, and go about to slay thee. For ( me think ) I hear a noise, like as it were of a woman travailing, or one laboring of her first child: Even the voice of the daughter Sion, that casteth out her arms, and sorroweth, saying: Ah woe is me, how sore vexed and faint is my heart, for them that are slain?
EZEKIEL or JEHEZEKIEL Chpt 17
The word of the Lord came unto me, saying: Thou son of man: put forth a dark speaking and a parable, unto the house of Israel, And say: Thus saith the Lord God: There came a great eagle with great wings, yee with mighty long wings, full of feathers, of diverse colors, upon the mount of Libanus, and took a branch from a Cedar tree, and break off the top of his twig, and carried it into the land of Canaan, and set it in a city of merchants. He took also a branch of the land, and planted it in a fruitful ground, he brought it unto great waters, and set it as a willow tree thereby. Then did it grow, and was a great vine stock, but low by the ground: thus there came of it a vine, and it brought forth blossoms, and spread out branches. But there was another eagle, a great one, which had great wings and many feathers: and behold, the roots of this vine had an hunger after him, and spread out his branches toward him, to water his fruits: Nevertheless it was planted upon good ground beside great waters: so that ( by reason ) it should have brought out branches and fruit, and have been a goodly vine. Speak thou therefore, thus saith the Lord God: Shall this vine prosper? Shall not his roots be plucked out, his fruit be broken off, his green branches wither and fade away? Yee without strong armies or many people, shall it be plucked up by the roots. Behold, it was planted: shall it prosper therefore. Shall it not be dried up and withered, yee even in the shooting out of its blossoms, as soon as the east wind bloweth?
Moreover the word of the Lord came unto me saying: Speak that froward household: Know ye not, what these things do signify? Tell them: Behold, the king of Babylon came to Jerusalem, and took the King and his Princes, and led them to Babylon.
He took of the kings seed, and made a covenant with him, and took an oath of him: The Princes of the land took he with him also, that the land might be held in subjection, and not rebel, but keep the covenant, and fulfill it. But he fell from him, and sent his embassy tours into Egypt that he might have horses and much people. Should that prosper? Should he be kept safe, that doeth such things? Or should he escape, that breaketh his covenant? As truly as I live saith the Lord God: He shall die in Babylon, in the place where the King dwelleth, that made him King: whos oath he has despised, Neither shall Pharaoh with his great host and multitude of people, maintain him in the war: Then they cast up ditches, and set up bulwarks to destroy much people. For seeing he despised the oath, and broken the covenant, ( where as he yet give his hand thereupon ) and done all these things, he shall not escape.
Therefore thus saith the Lord God: As truly as I live, I will bring mine oath that he hath despised, and my covenant that he hath broken, upon his own head. I will cast my net about him, and catch him in my yarn. To Babylon will I carry him, there will I punish him, because of the great offense that he made me. As for those that flee from him out of the host, they shall be slayen with the sword. The residue shall be scattered toward all the winds: and ye shall know, that I the Lord hath spoken it.
Thus saith the Lord God: I will also take a branch from an high Cedar tree, and will set it, and take the uppermost twig, that is yet but tender, and plant it upon an high hill: Namely, upon the high hill of Sion will I plant it: that it may bring forth twigs, and give fruit, and be a great cedar tree: so that all manner of fowls may bide in it, and make their nests under the shadow of his branches.
And all the trees of the field shall know that I the Lord have brought down the high tree, and set the low tree up: that I have dried up the green tree, and made the dry tree to flourish: Even I the Lord that speak it, have also brought it to pass
HOSEA or OSEAS Chpt 8
Set the trumpet to thy mouth. and blow: get thee swiftly (as an eagle) into the house of the Lord: for they have broken my covenant, and transgressed my law. Israel can say unto me: thou art my God. we know thee: but he hath refused the thing that is good, therefore shall the enemy follow upon him. They have ordained kings, but not through me: they have made princes, and I must not know of it. Of their silver and their gold have they made them images, to bring themselves destruction. Thy calf, O Samaria, shall be taken away for my wrothfull indignation is gone forth against thee. How long will it be, or they can be cleansed? For the calf came from Israel, the workman made it therefore can it be no God, but even to the spiders web shall the calf of Samaria be turned. They have sown wind, therefore shall they reap a storm.
Their seed shall bare no corn, there shall no meal be made of their increase: though they reap, yet shall strangers devour it up. Israel shall perish, the Gentiles shall entreat him as a foul vessel. Since they went up to the Assyrians, they are become like a wild ass in the desert.
Ephraim giveth rewards to get lovers. Therefore are they scattered among the Heathen, There will I gather them up. They shall soon be weary of the burden of the king and princes. Ephraim hath made many altars to do wickedness, therefore shall the altars turn to his sin. Though I show them my law never so much, they count it as strange doctrine. Where as they do sacrifice, offering the flesh and eating it: The Lord will have no pleasure therein: but will remember their wickednesses, and punish their sins. Israel turneth again into Egypt, they have forgotten him that made them, they build churches, and Juda maketh many strong cities: therefore will I send a fire into their cities, and it shall consume their places
OBADIAH or ADDIAH Chpt 1
This is the vision that was showed unto Abdy: Thus hath the Lord God spoken upon Edom: We have heard of the Lord that there is an assemblage sent among the Heathen: Up, let us arise, and fight against them. Behold I will make thee small among the Heathen, so that thou shall be utterly despised. The pride of thy heart hath lift thee up, thou that dwellest in the strongholds of stone, and hast made thee an high seat: Thou sayest in thine heart: who shall cast me down to the ground? But though thou wentest up as high as an eagle, and madest thy nest above among the stars: yet would I pluck thee down from thence. If the thieves and robbers came to thee by night, thou taking thy rest: should they not steal, till they had enough? If the grape gatherers came upon thee, would they not leave thee some grapes? But how shall they rip Esau, and seek out his treasures?
Yee the men that were sworn unto thee, shall drive thee out of the borders of thine own land. They that now be at one with thee, shall deceive thee, and overcome thee: Even they that eat thy bread, shall betray thee, or ever thou perceive it. Shall not I at the same time destroy the wise men of Edom, and those that have understanding, from the mount of Esau? Thy giants ( O Theman ) shall be afraid, for through the slaughter they shall be all over thrown upon the mount of Esau. Shame shall come upon thee, for the malice that thou showed to thy brother Jacob: yee for ever more shalt thou perish, and that because of the time, when thou didest set thy self against him, even when the enemies carried away his host, and when the *aleauntes came in at his ports, and cast lots upon Jerusalem, and thou thyself was one of them.
Thou shalt no more see the day of thy brother, thou shalt no more behold the time of his captivity: thou shalt no more rejoice over the children of Juda, in the day of their destruction, thou shall triumph no more in the time of their trouble. Thou shalt no more come in at the gates of my people, in the time of their decay: thou shalt not see their misery in the day of their fall.
Thou shalt send no man against their host, in the day of their adversary: neither shalt thou stand waiting any more at the corners of the streets, to murder such as are fled, or to take them prisoners, that remain in the day of their trouble. For the day of the Lord is hard upon all the Heathen. Like as thou hast done, so shalt thou be dealt withal, yee thou shalt be rewarded even upon thy head. For like wise as ye have drunken upon mine holy hill, so shall all the Heathen drink continually: yee drink shall they, and swallow up, so that ye shall be, as though ye had never been.
But upon the mount Sion, there shall a remnant escape: these shall be holy, and the house of Jacob shall possess even those, that had afore in possession. Moreover, the house of Jacob shall be a fire, the house of Joseph a flame, and the house of Esau the straw: which they shall kindle and consume, so that nothing shall be left of the house of Esau, for the Lord himself has said it. They of the South shall have the mount of Esau in possession: and look what layeth upon the ground, that shall the Philistines have: the plain fields shall Ephraim and Samaria possess: and the mountains of Galaad shall Benjamin have. And this host shall be the children of Israels prisoners: Now what so layeth from Canaan unto Zareptah, and in Sepharad, that shall be under the subjection of Jerusalem: and the cities of the south shall inherit it. Thus they that escape upon the hill of Sion, shall go up to punish the mount of Esau, and the kingdom shall be the Lords
*aleauntes=aliens ; from the roots of alienus/alius..Hebrew root "man" mortal man, incurable wickedness
MICHEAS or MICHEAH Chpt 1
This is the word of the Lord, that came to Micheas the Morastite, in the days of Jothan, Ahaz, and Jehezekiah, kings of Judah: which was showed upon Samaria and Jerusalem. Hear, all ye people, hearken, mark this well O earth, and all that therein is: Yee the Lord God himself be witness among you, even the Lord from his holy temple. For, why? behold, the Lord shall go out of his place, and come down, and tread upon the high things of the earth. The mountains shall consume under him, and the valleys shall cleave asunder: like as war consumeth at the fire, and as the waters runneth down hard. And all this shall be for the wickedness of Jacob, and the sins of the house of Israel.
But what is the wickedness of Jacob? Is not Samaria? Which are the high places of Judah? Is not Jerusalem? Therefore I shall make Samaria an heap of stones in the field, to lay about the vineyard: her stones shall I cast into the valley, and discover her foundations. All her Images shall be broken down and all her winnings shall be burned in the fire: yee all her Idols will I destroy: for why? they are gathered out of the hire of an whore, and to an whores hire they shall be turned again. Wherefore I will mourn and make lamentation, bare and naked will I go: I must mourn like the dragons, and take sorrow like the ostriches: For their wound is past remedy: And why? it is come in to Judah, and hath touched the port of my people at Jerusalem already. Weep not, least they at Geth perceive it.
Thou at Betaphra, welter thyself in the dust and ashes. Thou that dwelleth at Sephir, get thee hence with shame. The proud shall boast no more for very sorrow: and why? her neighbor shall take from her what she hath. The rebellious city hopeth, that it shall not be so evil: but for all that, the plague shall come from the Lord, even in to the port of Jerusalem. The great noise of the chariots shall fear them, that dwell at Lachis, which is an occasion of the sin of the daughter of Sion, for in thee came up the wickedness of Israel. Yee she sent her *coursers into the land of Geth.
The houses of lies will deceive the kings of Israel. And as for thee ( O thou that dwellest at Morassa ) I shall bring a possession upon thee, and the plague of Israel shall reach unto Odolla. Make thee bald, and shave thee, because of thy tender children: Make thee clean bald as an eagle, for they shall be carried away captive from thee
*coursers: a hunter, a dog or horse used for hunting
ABACUK or HABACUK Chpt 1
This is the heavy burden, which the Prophet Abacuk did see. O' Lord, how long shall I cry, and thou wilt not hear? How long shall I complain unto thee, suffering wrong, and thou wilt not help? Why lettest thou me see weariness and labor? Tyranny and violence are before me, power over goeth right: for the land is torn in pieces, and there can no right judgement go forth. And why? the ungodly is more set by then the righteous: this is the cause, that the wrong judgement proceedeth. Behold among the Heathen, and look well: wonder at it, and be abashed: For I do a thing in your time, which though it be told you, ye shall not believe.
For lo, I will rise up the **Cauldees, that bitter and swift people: which shall go as wide as the land is, to take possession of dwelling places, that be not their own. A grim and boisterous people is it, these shall sit in judgement and punish. Their horses are swifter than the cats of the mountain, and bite sorer than the wolves in the evening. Their horsemen come by great heaps from far, they flee hastily to devour as the eagle. They come all to spoil: out of them cometh an east wind, which bloweth and gathereth their captives, like as the sand. They shall mock the kings, and laugh the princes to scorn. They shall not set by any strong hold, for they shall lay ordinance against it, and take it. Then shall they take a fresh courage unto them, to go forth and do more evil, and so ascribe that power unto their God.
But thou O' Lord my God, my holy one thou art from the beginning, therefore shall we not die. O' Lord, thou hast ordered them for punishment, and set them to reprove the mighty. Thine eyes are clean, thou mayest not see evil, thou can not behold that thing that is wicked. Wherefore when thou dost look upon the ungodly, and holdest thy tongue, when the wicked devour the man that is better then himself? Thou makest men as the fish in the sea, and like as the creeping beasts, that have no guide. They take up all with their *angle they catch it in their net, and gather it in their yarn: whereof they rejoice and are glad. Therefore offer unto their net, and do sacrifice unto their yarn: because through it their portions is become so fat, and their meat so plenteous. Wherefore they cast out their net again, and never cause to slay the people
**Cauldees=from the Hebrew: those willing to do evil. *angle (hook)
THE FOURTH BOOK OF ESDRAS Chpt 11
Then saw I a dream: and behold, there came up from the sea an eagle, which had twelve wings and three heads: And I saw, and behold, *he spread his wings over all the earth, and all the winds of the air blew in them, and so they were put together again. And I beheld, and out of his feathers there grew other little contrary feathers: the heads rested, the head in the midst was greater than the others, yet rested it with the residue.Note Eagle *he spread his wings "over all the earth". *overwane= lord over (sml l ) over / diminish, weaken
Moreover I saw, that the eagle flew with his wings, and reigned upon the earth, and over all them that dwell upon the earth: and I saw that all things under heaven were subject unto him, and no man spoke against him, no not one creature upon the earth. I saw also that the eagle stood up on his claws, and give a sound with his feathers, and a voice saying things after this manner: watch not all together, sleep every man in his own place, and watch for a time, but let the heads be preserved at the last. Nevertheless I saw, that the voice went not out of his heads, but from the midst of his body. And I numbered his contrary feathers, and behold there were eight of them. And I looked, and behold upon the right side there arose one feather, and reigned over all the earth. And it happened, that when it reigned, the end of it came, and the place thereof appeared no more. So the next following stood up, and reigned, and had a great time: and it happened, that when it reigned, the end of it came also, like as the first, so that it appeared no more.
Then came there a voice unto it, and said: Hear thou that hast kept in the earth so long, this I say unto thee, before thou beginest to appear no more: There shall none after thee attain unto thy time. Then arose the third, and reigned as the other afore, and appeared no more also. So went it with all the residue one after the other, so that every one reigned, and then appeared no more. Then I looked, and behold, in the process of time that the feathers that followed were set up upon the right side, that they might rule also: and some of them ruled, but within a while they appeared no more: for some of them were set up, but ruled not. After this I looked, and behold the twelve feathers appeared no more, and that two wings: and there were no more upon the eagles body, but the two heads that rested, and six feathers. Then saw I also, that the six feathers were parted in two, and remained under the head, that was upon the right side, for the four continued in their place. So I looked, and behold, they that were under the wings, thought to set up themselves, and to have the rule. Then was there one set up, but shortly it appeared no more, and the second was sooner away than the first. And I beheld, and lo, the two thought also by themselves to reign: and when they so thought, behold there awaked one of the heads that were at rest, namely, it that was in the midst, for that was the greater of the two heads. And then I saw, that the two heads were filled with him and the head was turned with them that were by him, and eat up the two under wings , that would have reigned.
But this head put the whole earth in fear, and bare rule in it, over all those that dwelt upon the earth with much labor, and he had the governance of the world, over all the fowls that have been. After this I looked , and behold, the head that was in the midst, suddenly appeared no more, like as the wings: then came the two heads, which ruled upon the earth, and over those that dwelt therein. And I beheld, and lo the head upon the right side, devoured it that was upon the left side. And I heard a voice, which said unto me: look before thee, and consider the thing that thou seest. Then I saw, and behold, as it were a lion that roareth, running hastily out of the wood, and he sent out a mans voice unto the eagle, and said: Hear thou, I will talk with thee, and the Highest shall say unto thee: Is it not thou that hast the victory of the four beasts, whom I made to reign upon the earth and in my world, and that the end of their times might come through them?
And the fourth came, and *overwane, subdue all the beasts that were past, and had power over the world with great fearfulness, and over the whole compass of the earth with the most wicked labor, and so long time dwelt he upon the earth with deceit, and the earth thou hast not judged with truth. For thou hast troubled the meek, thou hast hurt the peaceable and quiet, thou hast loved lies, and destroyed the dwellings of them that brought forth fruit, and hast cast down the walls of such as did thee no harm. Therefore is thy wrongeous dealing and blasphemy come up unto the Highest, and thy pride unto the Mighty. The Highest also hath looked upon the proud times, and behold, they are ended, and their abominations are fulfilled. And therefore appear no more thou eagle, and thy horrible wings, and thy wicked feathers, and thy ungracious heads, and thy sinful claws, and all thy vain body: that the earth may be refreshed, and come again to herself, when she is delivered from thy violence, and that she may hope for the judgement and mercy of him that made her
THE FOURTH BOOK OF ESDRAS Chpt 12
And it happened when the Lion spake, these words unto the eagle, I saw, and behold, the head that afore had the upper hand, appeared no more: neither did the four wings appear any more, that came to him, and were set up to reign: and their kingdom was small and full of uproar. And I saw, and behold, they appeared no more, and the whole body of the eagle was burnt, and the earth was in great fear. Then awakened I out of the trance of my mind, and from great fear, and said unto my spirit: Lo, this hast thou given me, in that thou searchest out the ways of the Highest: lo, yet I am weary in my mind, and very weak in my spirit, and little strength is there in me, for the great fear that I received this night. Therefore will I now beseech the Highest, that he will comfort me unto the end: And I said, Lord, Lord, if I have before thy sight, and if I am justified with thee before many other, and if my prayer be come up before thy face, comfort me then, and show me thy servant the interpretation and plain difference of this horrible sight, that thou mayest perfectly comfort my soul: for thou hast judged me worthy, to show me the last of times.
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. In the same kingdom shall twelve kings reign, one after the other. For the second shall begin to reign, and shall have more time than the other, and this do the twelve wings signify, which thou sawest. As for the voice that spake, and that thou sawest go out from the heads but not from the body, it be tokeneth, that after the time of that kingdom there shall arise great strivings, and it shall stand in peril of falling: nevertheless it shall not yet fall, but shall be set in to his beginning. And the eight under wings which thou sawest hang unto the wings of him, betoken, that in him there shall arise eight kings, whose time shall be small, and their years swift, and two of them shall bear. But when the midst time cometh, there shall be four kept in that time, when his time begineth to come that it may be ended, but two shall be kept unto the end.
And where as thou sawest three heads resting, this is the interpretation: In his last shall the Highest raise up three kingdoms, and call many again into them, and they shall have the dominion of the earth, and of those that dwell therein, with much labor above all those that were before them. Therefore are they called the heads of the eagle: for it is they that shall bring forth his wickedness again, and that shall perform and finish his last. And where as thou sawest, that the great head appeared no more, it signifieth, that one of them shall die upon his bed, and yet with pain, for the two that remain, shall be slain with the sword. For the sword of the one shall devour the other, but at the last shall he fall through the sword himself.
And where as thou sawest two underwings upon the head that is on the right side, it signifieth that it is they, whom the Highest hath kept unto their end: this is a small kingdom, full of trouble. The Lion whom thou sawest rising up out of the wood, and roaring, and speaking unto the eagle, and rebuking him for his unrighteousness, is the wind, which the Highest hath kept for them and for their wickedness unto the end: he shall reprove them, and rent them asunder before them. For he shall set them living before the judgement, and shall rebuke them: for the residue of my people shall he deliver with trouble, those that be preserved over mine ends: and he shall make them joyful until the coming day of Judgement, where of I have spoken unto thee from the beginning. This is the dream that thou sawest, and this is the interpretation. Thou only hast been mete to know the secret of the Highest.
Therefore write all these things that thou hast seen in a book, and hide them, and teach them the wise in the people, whos hearts thou knowest may comprehend and keep these secrets. But wait thou here thyself yet seven days more, that it may be showed the , whatsoever pleaseth the Highest to declare unto thee, and with that he went his way.
And when all the people perceived, that the seven days were past, And I come again into the city, they gathered them all together from the least to the most, and came unto me, and said: what have we offended thee? and what evil have we done against thee, that thou forsake us, and sitteth here in this place? For of all the people thou only are left us, as a grape of the vine, and as a candle in a dark place, and as a haven a ship preserved from the tempest. Have we not adversity enough, but thou must forsake us? Were it not better for us, that we had been burnt with Sion? For we are no better, then they that died there: and they wept with loud voice. Then answered I them and said: Be of good comfort O' Israel, be not heavy thou house of Jacob: for the Highest hath you in remembrance, and the Mighty hath not forgotten you in temptation. As for me, I have not forsaken you, neither am I departed from you: but am come into this place to pray, because of the misery of Israel, that I might seek mercy for the low estate of your Sanctuary. And now go your way home every man, and after these days will I come unto you. So the people went their way into the city, like as I commanded them: but I remained in the field seven days, as the Angel bade me: and I ate only of the flowers of the field, and had my meat of the herbs in those days
THE REVELATION OF ST JOHN Chpt 4
After this I looked, and behold a door was open in heaven, and the first voice which I heard, was as it were of a trumpet talking with me which said: come up hither, and I will show thee things which must be fulfilled here after. And immediately I was in the spirit: And behold a seat was put in heaven, and one sat on the seat. And he that sat, was to look upon, like unto a jasper stone and a sardine stone: And there was a rainbow about the seat, in sight like to an emerald. And about the seat were twenty four seats. And upon the seats twenty four elders sitting, clothed in white raiment, and had on their heads crowns of gold.
And out of the seat proceeded lightnings, and thunderings, and voices, and there were seven lamps of fire, burning before the seat, which are the seven spirits of God. And before the seat there was a sea of glass like unto crystal, and in the midst of the seat, and round about the seat were four beasts full of eyes before and behind. And the first beast was like a lion, the second beast like a calf, and the third beast had a face as a man, and the fourth beast was like a flying eagle. And the four beasts had each one of them six wings about him, and they were full of eyes with in. And they had no rest day neither night saying: Holy, holy, holy, Lord God almighty, which was, and is, and is to come.
And when those beasts gave glory and honour and thanks to him that sat on the seat, which liveth for ever and ever: the twenty four elders fell down before him that sat on the throne, and worshipped him that liveth for ever, and cast their crowns before the throne saying: thou art worthy Lord to receive glory and honour, and power, for thou hast created all things, and for thy wills sake they are, and were created
THE REVELATION OF ST JOHN Chpt 12
And there appeared a great wonder in heaven: A woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars. And she was with child and cried travailing in birth, and pained ready to be delivered. And there appeared another wonder in heaven, for behold a great red dragon having seven heads, and ten horns and crowns upon his heads: and his tail drew the third part of the stars, and cast them to the earth.
And the dragon stood before the woman, which was ready to be delivered: for to devour her child as soon as it were born. And she brought forth a man child, which should rule all nations with a rod of iron. And her son was taken up unto God, and to his seat. And the woman fled into wilderness, where she had a place, prepared of God, that they should feed her there one thousand two hundred and sixty days.
And there was a great battle in heaven, Michael and his Angels fought with the dragon, and the dragon fought and his Angels, and prevailed not: neither was their place found any more in heaven. And the great dragon, that old serpent called the devil and Satan was cast out. Which deceiveth all the world. And he was cast into the earth, and his angels were cast out also.
And I heard a loud voice saying: in heaven is now made salvation and strength and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ. For he is cast down which accused them before God day and night. And they overcame him by the blood of the lamb, and by the word of their testimony, and they loved not their lives unto the death. Therefore rejoice heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth, and of the sea: for the devil is come down unto you which hath great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time.
And when the dragon saw, that he was cast unto the earth, he persecuted the woman, which brought forth the man child. And to the woman were given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place, where she is nourished for a time, times, and half a time, from the presence of the serpent. And the dragon cast out of his mouth water after the woman as it had been a river, because she should have been caught of the flood. And the earth helped the woman, and the earth opened her mouth and swallowed, up the river, which the dragon cast out of his mouth. And the dragon was wroth with the woman: and went and made war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ. And I stood on the sea *stonde
