FIFTH BOOK OF MOSES Chpt 7
When the Lord thy God hath brought thee into the land whither thou goest to possess it, and hath cast out many nations before thee: the Hethites, the Girgosites, the Amorites, the Cananites, the Pheresites, the Hevites and the Jebusites. Seven nations more in number and mightier than thou: and when the Lord thy God hath set them before thee that thou shouldest smite them, see that thou utterly destroy them and make no covenant with them nor have compassion on them. Also thou shalt make no marriages with them, neither give thy daughter unto his son nor take his daughter unto thy son. For they will make your sons depart from me and serve strange Gods, and then will the wrath of the Lord wax hot upon you and destroy you shortly.
But thus ye shall deal with them: overthrow their altars, break down their pillars, cut down their groves and burn their images with fire. For thou art an holy nation unto the Lord thy God: the Lord thy God hath chosen thee to be a several people unto himself of all nations that are upon the earth. It was not because of the multitude of you above all nations, that the Lord had lust unto you and chose you. For ye were fewest of all nations: But because the Lord loved you and because he would keep the oath which he had sworn unto your fathers, therefore he brought you out of Egypt with a mighty hand and delivered you out of the house of bondage: even from the hand of Pharao king of Egypt.
Understand therefore, that the Lord thy God he is God and that a true God, which keepeth appointment and mercy unto them that love him and keep his commandments, even throughout a thousand generations and rewardeth them that hate him before his face so that he bringeth them to nought, and will not defer the time unto him that hateth him but will reward him before his face. Keep therefore the commandments, ordinances and laws which I command you this day, that ye do them.
If ye shall hearken unto these laws and shall observe and do them, then shall the Lord thy God keep appointment with thee and the mercy which he sware unto thy fathers and will love thee, bless thee and multiply thee: he will bless the fruit of thy womb and the fruit of thy field, thy corn, thy wine and thy oil, the fruit of thine oxen and the flocks of thy sheep in the land which he sware unto thy fathers to give thee. Thou shalt be blessed above all nations, there shall be neither man nor woman unfruitful among you, nor anything unfruitful among your cattle. Moreover the Lord will turn from thee all manner infirmities, and will put none of the evil diseases of Egypt (which thou knowest) upon thee, but will send them upon them that hate thee.
Thou shalt bring to nought all nations which the Lord thy God delivereth thee, thine eye shall have no pity upon them neither shalt thou serve their Gods, for that shall be thy decay. If thou shalt say in thine heart: these nations are more than I, how can I cast them out? Fear them not, but remember what the Lord thy God did unto Pharao and unto all Egypt, and the great temptations which thine eyes saw, and the signs and wonders and mighty hand and stretched out arm wherewith the Lord thy God brought thee out: even so shall the Lord thy God do unto all the nations of which thou art afraid.
Thereto, the Lord thy God will send hornets among them until they that are left, and hide themselves from thee, be destroyed. See thou fear them not for the Lord thy God is among you a mighty God and a terrible. The Lord thy God will put out these nations before thee a little and a little: thou mayst not consume them at once lest the beasts of the field increase upon thee. And the Lord thy God shall deliver them unto thee and stir up a mighty tempest among them, until they be brought to nought. And he shall deliver their kings into thine hand, and thou shalt destroy their names from under heaven. There shall no man stand before thee, until thou have destroyed them. The images of their gods thou shalt burn with fire, and see that thou covet not the silver or gold that is on them nor take it unto thee, lest thou be snared therewith. For it is an abomination unto the Lord thy God. Bring not therefore the Abomination to thine house, lest thou be a damned thing as it is: but utterly defy it and abhor it, for it is a thing that must be destroyed
JOB Chpt 31
I made a covenant with mine eyes, that I would not look upon a damsel. For how great a portion shall I have of God from above? and what inheritance from the almighty from on high? As for the ungodly and he that joineth himself to the company of wicked doers shall not destruction and misery come upon him? Doth not he see my ways, and tell all my goings. If I have cleaved unto vanity, or if my feet have run to deceive: Let me be weighed in an even balance, that God may see my innocency. If so be that I have withdrawn my foot out of the right way, if my heart hath followed mine eyesight, if I have stained or defiled mine hands: O' then is it reason that I sow, and another eat, yee that my generation and posterity be clean rooted out. If mine heart hath *lusted after my neighbors wife, or if I have laid wait at his door. O' then let my wife *be another mans harlot and let other lie with her. For this is a wickedness and sin, that is worthy to be punished, yee and a fire that utterly shall consume, and root out all my substance. Did I ever think scorn to do right unto my servants and maidens, when they had any matter against me. But seeing that God will sit in judgement what shall I do? And for so much as he will needs visit me, what answer shall I give him? He that did fashion me in my mothers womb, made he not him also? were we not both shaped alike in our mothers bodies? When the poor desireth anything at me, have I denied them? Have I caused the widow stand waiting for me in vain? Have I eaten my portion alone, that the fatherless hath had no part with me? For mercy grew up with me from my youth, and compassion from my mothers womb. Have I seen any man perish through nakedness and want of clothing? Or any poor man for lack of raiment, whose sides thanked me not, because he was warmed with the wool of my sheep?
Did I ever lift up my hand to hurt the fatherless? Yee in the gates where I saw myself to be in authority: then let mine arm fall from my shoulder, and mine arm holes be broken from the joints. For I have ever feared the vengeance and punishment of God, and knew very well, that I was not able to bear his burden. Have I put my trust in gold? Or have I said to the finest gold of all: thou art my confidence? Have I rejoiced because my substance was great, and because my hand got so much? Did I ever greatly regard the rising of the *son? Or had I the going down of the moon in great reputation? Hath my heart meddled privately with any deceit? Or, did I ever kiss mine own hand? That were a wickedness worth to be punished, for then should I have denied the God that was above. Have I ever rejoiced at the hurt of mine enemy? Or was I ever glad, that any harm happened to him? Oh no . I never suffered my mouth to do such a sin, as to wish him evil. Yet they of mine own household say: who shall let us to have our belly full of his flesh? I have not suffered a stranger to lay without, but opened my doors unto him. Have I ever done any wicked deed where through I shamed myself before men: or any abomination, that I was *faine to hide it? For if I had feared any great multitude of people: or if I had been despised of the simple, O' then I should have been afraid. Thus I have quietly spent my life, and not gone out at the door. O' that I had one which did hear me. Lo, this is my cause. Let the almighty give me answer: and let him that is my contrary party , sue me with libel. Then shall I take it upon my shoulder, and as a garland about my head. I have told the number of my goings, and delivered them unto him as to a Prince. But if cause be that my land cry against me, or that the furrows thereof make any complaint: if I have eaten the fruits thereof unpaid for, yee if I have grieved any of the plowmen: then let thistles grow instead of my wheat, and thorns for my barley

THE PSALMS Chpt 22
But as for me, I am a worm and no man: a very scorn of men and the out cast of the people. All they that see me, laugh me to scorn: they shoot out their lips, and shake their heads. He trusted in God, let him deliver him: let him help him, if he will have him.
But thou art he that took me out of my mothers womb: thou wast my hope, when I hanged upon my mothers breasts. I have been left unto thee ever since I was born, thou art my God, even from my mothers womb.
O' go not far from me then, for trouble is hard at hand, and here is none to help me. Great bulls are come about me, fat oxen close me in on every side. They gape upon me with their mouths, as it were a rampaging and roaring lion.
THE PSALMS Chpt 58
If your minds be upon righteousness in deed, then judge the thing that is right, O' ye sons of men.
But ye imagine mischief in your hearts, and your hands deal with wickedness. The ungodly are *froward, even from their mothers womb: as soon as they be born, they go and stray and speak lies. They are as furious as the serpent, even like the deaf adder that stoppeth her ears. That she should not hear the voice of the charmer, charm he never so wisely.
Break their teeth ( O' God ) in their mouths, smite the *chaft bones of the lions whelps in sonder, O' Lord. That they may fall away, like water that runneth a pace: and that when they shoot their arrows, they may be broken. Let them consume away like a snail, and like the untimely fruit of a woman, and let them not see the *sunne.
Or ever your thorns be sharp, that wrath shall take them quick, like a stormy wind.
The righteous shall rejoice when he seeth the vengeance, and shall wash his feet in the blood of the ungodly.
So that a men shall say, verily there is a reward for the righteous: doubtless, there is a God that judgeth in the earth
*froward = stubbornly contrary, disobedient, obstinate.

THE PSALMS Chpt 71
In thee, O' Lord, is my trust, let me never be put to confusion, but rid me, and deliver me through thy righteousness: incline thine ear unto me, and help me. Be thou my stronghold,( whereunto I may always flee ) thou that hast promised to help me: for thou art my house of defense and my castle.
Deliver me, O' my God, out of the hand of the ungodly, out of the hand of the unrighteous and cruel man.
For thou, O' Lord God, art the thing that I long for, thou art my hope even from my youth. I have leaned upon thee ever since I was born, thou art he that took me out of my mothers womb, therefore is my praise always of thee.
I am become a wonder unto the multitude, but my sure trust is in thee.
Oh let my mouth be filled with thy praise and honor all the day long.
Cast me not away in mine old age, forsake me not when my strength faileth me.
For mine enemies speak against me, and they that lay wait for my soul, take their counsel together, saying: God hath forsaken him, persecute him, take him, for there is none to help him.
Go not far from me, O' God: my God, haste thee to help me.
Let them be confounded and perish, that are against my soul: let them be covered with shame and dishonor, that seek to do me evil.
As for me, I will patiently abide always, and will ever increase thy praise. My mouth shall speak of thy righteousness and saving health all the day long, for I know no end thereof. Let me go in ( O' Lord God ) and I will make mention of thy power and righteousness only.
Thou, O' God, hast learned me from my youth up until now, therefore will I tell of thy wondrous works. Forsake me not, in mine old age, when I am grey headed: until I have showed thy arm unto childrens children, and thy power to all that are yet for to come.
O what great troubles and adversities hast thou showed me? and yet didest thou turn and refresh me: yee and broughtest me from the deep of the earth again. Thou hast brought me to great honor, and comforted me on every side.
Therefore will I praise thee and thy faithfulness, O' God, playing on the lute, unto thee will I sing upon the harp, O thou holy one of Israel. My lips would fain sing praises unto thee: and so would my soul whom thou hast delivered.
My tongue talketh of thy righteousness all the day long, for they are confounded and brought unto shame, that sought to do me evil

The song of the stairs.
Except the Lord build the house, the labor is but lost that build it.
Except the Lord keep the city, the watchman waketh but in vain.
It is but lost labor that yee rise up early, and take no rest, but eat the bread of carefulness: for look to whom it pleaseth him, he giveth it in sleep.
Lo, children and the fruit of the womb are an heritage and gift, that cometh of the Lord: Like as arrows in the hand of a giant, even so are the young children.
Happy is the man, that hath his quiver full of them: they shall not be ashamed, when they speak with their enemies in the gate
THE PSALMS Chpt 139
To the chaunter, a Psalme of David.
O' Lord, thou searchest me out, and knowest me.
Thou knowest my down sitting and mine uprising, thou understandest my thoughts afar off. Thou art about my path and about my bed, and spiest out all my ways.
For lo, there is not a word in my tongue, but thou, O' Lord, knowest it altogether.
Thou hast fashioned me behind and before, and laid thine hand upon me.
Such knowledge is too wonderful and excellent for me, I cannot attain unto it.
Whither shall I go then from thy spirit? or, whither shall I go then from thy presence? If I climb up into heaven, thou art there: if I go down to hell, thou art there also.
If I take the wings of the morning, and remain in the uttermost part of the sea:
Even there also shall thy hand lead me, and thy right hand shall hold me.
If I say: peradventure the darkness shall cover me, then shall my night shall be turned to day. Yee the darkness is no darkness with thee, but the night is as clear as the day, the darkness and the light are both alike.
For my reins are thine, thou hast covered me in my mothers womb.
I will give thanks unto thee, for I am wonderfully made: marvelous are thy works, and that my soul knoweth right well. My bones are not hid from thee, though I be made secretly, and fashioned beneath the earth.
Thine eyes see my unperfectness, they stand all written in thy book: my days were fashioned, when as yet there was not one of them.
How dear are thy counsels unto me, O' God? O' how great is the sum of them.
If I tell them, they are more in number than the sand: when I wake up, I am present with thee.
Wilt thou not slay the wicked ( O' God )that the bloodthirsty might depart from me? For they speak unright of thee, thine *enemies exalt themselves presumptuously.
I hate them, O' Lord, that hate thee: and I may not away with those that rise up against thee? Yee I hate them right sore, therefore are they mine enemies.
Try me, O' God, and seek the ground of mine heart: prove me, and examine my thoughts.
Look well if there be any way of wickedness in me, and lead me in the way everlasting
*enemies exalt themselves presumptuously. *KJV = take thy name in vain. RN
THE PROVERBS Chpt 30
The words of Agur the son of Jakeh
*The prophecy of a true and faithful man, whom God hath helped, whom God had comforted and nourished.
For though I a least of all, and have no mans understanding ( for I never learned wisdom) yet have I understanding, and am well informed in Godly things. Who hath climbed up into heaven? Who hath come down from thence? Who hath holden the wind fast in his hands? Who hath comprehended the waters in a garment? Who hath set all the ends of the world? What is his name, or what is his sons name? Canest thou tell? All the words of God are pure and clean, for he is a shield unto them that put their trust in him. Put thou nothing unto his words, lest he reprove thee, and thou be found a liar.
Two things I require of thee, that thou will not deny me before I die. Remove from me vanity and lies: give me neither poverty nor riches, only grant me a necessary living. Lest I be so full, I deny thee, and say: What fellow is the Lord? And lest I being constrained through poverty, fall unto stealing, and foreswear the name of my God. Accuse not a servant unto his master, lest he speak evil of thee also, and thou be hurt. He that bringeth up an evil report upon the generation of his father and mother, is not worthy to be commended.
The generation that think themselves clean, shall not be cleansed from their filthiness. There are people that have a proud look, and cast up their eyelids. This peoples teeth are swords, and their chaft bones they consume and devour the simple of the earth, and the poor from among men.
This generation which is like an horseleach, hath two daughters: the one is called fetch hither, and the other bring hither.
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

THE BOOK OF THE PREACHER Chpt 5
Yet is there a sore plague, which I have seen under the sun, (namely) riches to keep the hurt of him that hath them in possession.
For often times they perish with his great misery and trouble: and if he have a child it getteth nothing. Like as he came naked out of his mothers womb, so goeth he thither again, and carryeth nothing away with him for all his labor. This is a miserable plague, that he shall go away even as he came. What helpeth him then, that he hath labored in the wind? All the days of his life also must he eat in the dark, with great carefulness, sickness and sorrow. Therefore me think it a better and fairer thing, a man to eat and drink, and be refreshed of all his labor, that he taketh under the Sun all the days of his life, which God gave him, for this is his portion. For unto whom so ever God giveth riches, goods and power, he giveth it him to enjoy it, to take for his portion, and to be refreshed of his labor: this is now the gift of God. For he thinketh not much how long he shall live, for so much as God filleth his heart with gladness
THE BOOK OF THE PREACHER Chpt 11
Send thy vitals over the waters, and so shalt thou find them after many years. Give it away among seven or eight, for thou knowest not what misery shall come upon the earth. When the clouds are full, they pour out rain upon the earth. And when the tree falleth ( whether it be toward the South or North ) in what place so ever it fall, there it lieth. He that regardeth the wind, shall not sow: and he that hath respect unto the clouds, shall not reap. Now like as thou knowest not the way of the wind, nor how the bones are filled in a mothers womb: Even so thou knowest not the works of God, which is the workmaster of all.
Cease not thou therefore with thy hands to sow thy seed, whether it be in the morning or in the evening: for then knowest not whether this or that shall prosper, and if they both take, it is better. The light is sweet, and a pleasant thing is it for the eyes to look upon the *Sun. If a man live many years, and be glad in them all, let him remember the days of darkness, which shall be many: And when they come, all things shall be but vanity. Be glad then ( O' thou young man ) in thy youth, and let thine heart be merry in thy young days: follow the ways of thine own heart, and the lust of thine eyes: but be thou sure, that God shall bring thee into judgment for all these things
*Sun: here is Sun as recorded in the original Sunne
ESAI or ISAIAH Chpt 49
Ye Isles, hearken unto me, and take heed ye people from far: The Lord hath called me from my birth, and made mention of my name from my mothers womb: he hath made my mouth like a sharp sword, under the shadow of his hand hath he defended me, and hid me in his quiver, as a good arrow, and said unto me: Thou art my servant Israel, I will be honored in thee. Then answered I: I shall lese my labor, I shall spend my strength in vain. Nevertheless, I will commit my cause and my work unto the Lord my God. And now saith the Lord, even he that fashioned me from my mothers womb to be his servant, that I may bring Jacob again unto him: Howbeit, Israel shall not be not gathered unto him again. In whose sight I am great, which also is my Lord, my God and my strength. Let it be but a small thing, that thou art my servant, to set up the kindreds of Jacob, and to restore the destruction of Israel: If I make thee not also the light of the Gentiles, that thou mayest be my health unto the end of the world.
Moreover, thus saith the Lord the *avenger and holy one of Israel, because of the abhorring and despising among the Gentiles, concerning the servant of all them that bear rule: Kings and princes shall see, and arise and worship, because of the Lord that he is faithful: and because of the holy one of Israel, which hath chosen thee.
And thus saith the Lord: In the time appointed will I be present with thee. And in the hour of health will I help thee, and deliver thee. I will make thee a pledge for the people, so that thou shalt help up the earth again, and challenge again the scattered heritages: That thou mayest say to the prisoners: go forth, and to them that are in darkness: come into the light, that they may feed in the high ways, and get their living in all places. There shall neither hunger nor thirst, heat nor Sun hurt them. For he that favoreth them shall lead them, and give them drink of the spring wells. I will make ways upon all my mountains, and my foot paths shall be exalted. And behold, they shall come from far: lo, some from the north and west, some from the *south. Rejoice ye heavens, and sing praises thou earth: Talk of joy ye hills, for God will comfort his people, and have mercy upon his, that be in trouble.
Then shall Sion say: God hath forsaken me, and the Lord hath forgotten me. Doth a wife forget the child of her womb, and the son who she hath born? And though she forget, yet will not I forget thee. Behold, I have written thee up upon my hands, thy walls are ever in my sight. They that have broken thee down, shall make haste to build thee up again: and they that made thee waste shall dwell in thee. Lift up thine eyes, and look about thee: all these shall gather them together, and come to thee. As truly as I live ( saith the Lord ) thou shalt put them all upon thee, as an apparel, and gird them to thee, as an bride doth her jewels. As for thy land that layeth desolate, wasted and destroyed: it shall be too narrow for them, that shall dwell in it. And they that would devour thee, shall be far away. Then the child whom the barren shall bring forth unto thee, shall say in thine ear: This place is too narrow, sit near together, that I may have some room. Then shall thou think to thyself: Who hath begotten me these? seeing I am barren and alone, a captive and an out cast? And who hath nourished them up for me? I am desolate and alone, but from whence come these?
And therefore thus saith the Lord God: Behold, I will stretch out mine hand to the Gentiles, and set up my token to the people. They shall bring thy sons in their laps, and carry thy daughters unto thee upon their shoulders. For kings shall be thy nursing fathers, and Queens shall be thy nursing mothers. They shall fall before thee with their faces flat upon the earth, and lick up the dust of thy feet: that thou mayest know, how that I am the Lord. And who so putteth his trust in me, shall not be confounded. Who so spoileth the giant of his *praye? or who taketh the prisoners from the mighty? And therefore thus saith the Lord: The prisoners shall be taken from the giant, and the spoil delivered from the violent: for I will magnify thy cause against thine adversaries, and save thy sons. And feed thine enemies with their own flesh, and make them drink of their own blood, as of sweet wine. And all flesh shall know ( O Jacob ) that I am the Lord thy Saviour, a strong avenger

JEREMIE or JEREMIAH Chpt 1
These are the Sermons of Jeremie the son of Helkiah the Priest, one of them that dwell at Anathoth in the land of Ben Jamin: when the Lord had first spoken to him, in the time of Josiah the son of Amon king of Judah, in the thirteenth year of his kingdom: and so during unto the time of Jehoakim the son of Josiah king of Judah, and until the eleven years of Zedekiah the son of Josiah king of Judah were ended: when Jerusalem was taken, even in the fifth Month. The word of the Lord spake thus unto me: Before I fashioned thee in thy mothers womb, I did know thee: And or ever thou wast born, I sanctified thee, and ordained thee, to be a Prophet unto the people. Then said I: O' Lord God, I am *unmete, for I am but young. And the Lord answered me thus: Say not so, I am too young: For thou shalt go to all that I shall send thee unto, and whatsoever I command thee, thou shalt thou speak. Be not afraid of their faces, for I will be with thee, to deliver thee, saith the Lord.
And with that, the Lord stretched out his hand, and touched my mouth, and said moreover unto me. Behold I put my words in thy mouth, and this day I set thee over the people and kingdoms: that thou mayest root out, break off, destroy, and make waste: and that thou mayest build up and plant. After this, the Lord spake unto me saying: Jeremie, what seest thou? And I said: I see a waking rod. Then said the Lord: thou hast seen right, for I will watch diligently upon my word, to perform it.
It happened afterward, that the Lord spake to me again, and said: What seest thou? And I said: I see a seething pot, looking out of the north hitherward.
Then the Lord said unto me: Out of the north shall come a plague upon all the dwellers of the land. For lo, I will call all the officers of the kingdoms of the north ( saith the Lord ) And they shall come, and every one shall set his seat in the gates of Jerusalem, and in all their walls round about and through all the cities of Judah. And through them shall I declare my judgment, upon all the wickedness of those men that have forsaken me: that have offered unto strange gods and worshipped the works of their own hands.
And therefore gird up thy loins, arise, and tell them all, that I give thee in commandment. Fear them not, I will not have thee to be afraid of them. For behold, this day do I make thee a strong fenced town, an iron pillar, and a wall of steel against the whole land, against the kings and mighty men of Judah, against the priests and people of the land. They shall fight against thee, but they shall not be able to overcome thee: for I am with thee, to deliver thee, sayeth the Lord
*unmete, ( not creditable )
Amos Chpt 1
Thus saith the Lord: For three and four wickednesses of the children of Ammon,I will not spare them: because they rip up the women great with child in Galaad, to make the borders of their lands that wider. Therefore I will kindle a fire in the walls of Rabbath, that shall consume her palaces: with a great cry, in the day of battle, in tempest and in the day of storm: So that their king shall go into captivity, he and his princes together, saith the Lord.

I myself also am a mortal man, like as all other, and am come of the earthly generation of him that was first made, and in my mothers womb was I fashioned to be flesh: In the time of ten months was I brought together in blood through the seed of man, and the commodious appetite of sleep. When I was born, I received like air as other men, and fell upon the earth, ( which is my nature ) crying and weeping at first, as all other do. I was wrapped in swaddling clothes, and brought up with great cares. For there is no king that hath had any other beginning of birth. All men have one entrance unto life, and one going out in like manner.
Wherefore I desired, and understanding was given me: I called, and the spirit of wisdom came in to me. I set more by her then by kingdoms and royal seats, and counted riches nothing in comparison of her. As for precious stone I compared it not unto her: for all gold is but gravel unto her, and silver shall be counted but clay before her sight. I loved her above welfare and beauty, and purposed to take her for my light, for her shine can not be quenched. All good things come to me with her, and innumerable riches through her hands. And I was glad in them all, for this wisdom went before me, and I knew not that she was the mother of all good things. Now as I myself learned unfainedly, so do I make other men partakers of her, and hide her riches from no man: For she is an infinite treasure unto men, which who so use, become partakers of the love and friendship of God, and are accepted unto him for the gifts of wisdom.
God hath granted me to talk wisely, and convenient to handle the things that he hath graciously lent me. For it is he, that leadeth unto wisdom, and teacheth to use wisdom and right. In his hand are we and our words: yee all our wisdom, our understanding and knowledge of all our works. For he hath given me the true science of these things: so that I know how the world was made, and the powers of the elements: The beginning, ending and midst of the times: how the times alter, how one goeth after another, and how they are fulfilled: the course of the year: the ordinances of the stars: the natures and kinds of beasts: the furriousness of beasts: the power of the winds: the imaginations of men: the diversities of young plants: the virtues of roots, And all such things as are secret and not looked for, have I learned. For the workmaster of all things hath taught me wisdom. In her is the spirit of understanding, which is holy, manyfold, one only, subtle, courteous, discreet, quick, undefiled, plain, sweet, loving the thing that is good, sharp, which forbiddeth not to do well, gentile, kind, steadfast, sure, free having all virtues, circumspect in all things: receiving all spirits of understanding, being clear and sharp. For wisdom is nimbler then all nimble things: she goeth through and attaineth to all things, because of her cleanness. For she is the breath of the power of God, and a pure clean expressing of the clearness of Almighty God. Therefore can no undefiled thing come unto her: for she is the brightness of the everlasting light, the undefiled mirror of the majesty of God, and the image of his goodness. And for so much as she is one, she may do all things: and being steadfast herself she reneweth all, and among the people conveyeth she herself in to the holy souls. She maketh Gods friends and prophets: for God loveth no man, but him in whom wisdom dwelleth. For she is more beautiful then the Sun and giveth more light then the stars, and the day is not to be compared unto her: for upon the day cometh night. But wickedness can not overcome wisdom, and foolishness may not be with her
THE SECOND OF THE MACHABEES Chpt 7
This excellent mother ( worthy to be well reported of, and had in remembrance) saw her seven sons die in one day, and suffered it patiently, because of the hope that she had in God: Yee she exhorted every one of them in especial,( to treat each one significant) and that boldly and steadfastly with *parfite wisdom, making up her *wivish thoughts with a manly stomach, and she said unto them: I cannot tell how ye came in my womb, for I gave you neither breath nor soul, no ner life. It is not I that joined the members of your bodies together, but the maker of the world, which fashioned the breath of man, and began all things. Even he also of his own mercy shall give you breath and life again like as ye now regard not our own selves for his laws sake.
THE GOSPELL OF ST. LUKE Chpt 1
And the Angel said unto him: fear not Zachary, for thy prayer is heard: And thy wife Elizabeth shall bear thee a son, and thou shalt call his name John, and thou shalt have joy and gladness, and many shall rejoice at his birth. For he shall be great in the sight of the Lord, and shall neither drink wine nor strong drink. And he shall be filled with the holy ghost, even in his mothers womb: and many of the children of Israel shall he turn to their Lord God. And he shall go before him in the spirit and power of *Helias to turn the hearts of the fathers to the children, and the unbelievers to the wisdom of the just men: to make the people ready for the Lord.
THE GOSPELL OF ST. LUKE Chpt 23
And Pilate gave sentence that it should be as they required, and let loose unto them, him that for insurrection and murder, was cast into prison, whom they desired: and delivered Jesus to do with him what they would. And as they led him away, they caught one Simon of Syrene, coming out of the field: and on him laid they the cross, to bear it after Jesus.
And there followed him a great company of people and of women, which women bewailed and lamented him. But Jesus turned back unto them, and said: Daughters of Jerusalem, weep not for me: but weep for your selves, and for your children. For behold, the days will come, when men shall say: happy are the barren and the wombs that never bare and the paps which never gave suck. Then shall they begin to say to the mountains, fall on us: and to the hills, cover us. For if they do this to a green tree, what shall be done to the dry?
THE GOSPELL OF ST. JOHN Chpt 3
There was a man of the Pharisees named Nicodemus, a ruler among the Jewes. The same came to Jesus by night, and said unto him. Rabbi, we know that thou art a teacher which art come from God. For no man could do such miracles as thou doest, except God were with him. Jesus answered and said unto him: Verily, verily I say unto thee: except a man be born a new, he cannot see the kingdom of God. Nicodemus said unto him: how can a man be born when he is old? can he enter into his mothers womb and be born again? Jesus answered: verily, verily I say unto thee: except that a man be born of water and of the spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh: and that which is born of the spirit, is spirit. Marvel not that I said to thee, ye must be born a new. The wind bloweth where he listeth, and thou hearest his sound: but canst not tell whence he cometh and whither he goeth. So is every man that is born of the spirit.
And Nicodemus answered and said unto him: how can these things be? Jesus answered and said unto him: art thou a master in Israel, and knowest not these things? Verily, verily, I say unto thee, we speak that we know, and testify that we have seen: and ye receive not our witness. If when I tell you earthly things, ye believe not: how should ye believe, if I shall tell you of heavenly things?
And no man ascendeth up to heaven, but he that came down from heaven, that is to say, the son of man which is in heaven.
And as Moses lift up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the son of man be lift up, that none that believeth in him perish: but have eternal life.
For God so loveth the world, that he hath given his only son, that none that believe in him, should perish: but should have everlasting life. For God sent not his son into the world, to condemn the world: but that the world through him might be saved. He that believeth on him, shall not be condemned. But he that believeth not, is condemned all ready, because he believeth not in the name of the only son of God. And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and the men loved darkness more than light, because their deeds were evil. For every man that evil doeth, hateth the light: neither cometh to light lest his deeds should be reproved. But he that doth truth, cometh to the light that his deeds might be known, how that they are wrought in God.
After these things came Jesus and his disciples into the Jewes land, and there he haunted with them and baptised. And John also baptised in Enon besides Salim, because there was much water there, and they came and were baptised. For John was not yet cast into prison.
And there arose a question between Johns disciples and the Jewes about purifying. And they came unto John, and said unto him: Rabbi, he that was with thee beyond Jordan, to whom thou barest witness. Behold the same baptiseth, and all men come to him. John answered, and said: a man can receive nothing at all except it be given him from heaven. Ye yourselves are witnesses, how that I said: I am not Christ, but am sent before him. He that hath the bride, is the bridegroom. But the friend of the bridegroom, which standeth by and heareth him, rejoiceth greatly of the bridegrooms voice. This my joy is fulfilled. He must increase: and I must decrease.
He that cometh from an high is above all: He that is of the earth, is earthly, and speaketh of the earth. He that cometh from heaven, is above all, and what he hath seen and heard: that he testifieth: but no man receiveth his testimony. How be it, he that hath received his testimony hath set to his seal that God is true. For he whom God hath sent, speaketh the words of God. For God giveth not the spirit by measure (unto him). The father loveth the son and hath given all things into his hand. He that believeth on the son, hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the son, shall not see life, but the wrath of God abideth on him
