Dearly beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, how that one day is with the Lord, as a thousand year, and a thousand year as one day.
The Lord is not slack to fulfil his promise, as some men count slackness: but is patient to us ward, and would have no man lost, but would receive all men to repentance.

TO THE EPHESIANS Chpt 2
And you hath he quickened also that were dead in trespass and sin, in the which in time past ye walked, according to the course of this world, and after the governor that ruleth in the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of unbelief, among which we also had our conversation in time past, in the lusts of our flesh, and fulfilled the will of the flesh and of the mind: and were naturally the children of wrath, even as well as *other.
kjv of Gog and Magog
 And you hath he quickened, who were dead in trespasses and sins;
 Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience:
 Among whom also we all had our conversation in times past in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind; and were by nature the children of wrath, even as others.

JEREMIE or JEREMIAH Chpt 12
O' Lord, thou art more righteous, then that I should dispute with thee: Nevertheless, let me talk with thee in things reasonable. How happeneth it, that the way of the ungodly is so prosperous? and that it goeth so well with them, which ( without any shame ) offend and live in wickedness? Thou plantest them, they take root, they grow, and bring forth fruit. They boast much of thee, yet doest thou not punish them. But thou Lord ( to whom I am well known ) thou that hast seen, and proved my heart, take them away, like as a flock is carried to the slaughter house, and appoint them for the day of slaughter.
How long shall the land mourn, and all the herbs of the field perish, for the wickedness of them that dwell therin?...
....Thus saith the Lord upon all mine evil neighbors, that lay hand on mine heritage, which I have given my people of Israel: Behold, I will pluck them ( namely Israel ) out of their land, and put out the house of Juda from among them. And when I have rooted them out, I will be at one with them again, and will have mercy upon them: and bring them again, every man to his own heritage, and to his land. And if they ( namely that trouble my people ) will learn the ways of them, to swear by my name: The Lord liveth ( like as when they learned my people to swear by Baal ) then shall they be reckoned among my people. But if they will not obey, then I will root out the same folk, and destroy them, sayeth the Lord
FOURTH BOOK OF MOSES Chpt 12
And the Lord came down in the pillar of the cloud and stood in the door of the tabernacle and called Aaron and Miriam. And they went out both of them. And he said: hear my words. If there be a prophet of the Lords among you, I will show myself unto him in a vision and will speak unto him in a dream: But my servant Moses is not so, which is faithful in all mine house. Unto him I speak mouth to mouth and he seeth the sight and the fashion of the Lord, and not through riddles. Wherefore then were ye not afraid to speak against my servant Moses?
FIFTH BOOK OF MOSES Chpt 4
Take heed to thyself therefore only and keep thy soul diligently, that thou forget not the things which thine eyes have seen, and that they depart not out of thine heart, all the days of thy life: but teach them thy sons, and thy sons sons. The day that I stood before the Lord your God in Horeb, when he said unto me, gather me the people together, that I may make them hear my words that they may learn to fear me as long as they live upon the earth and that they may teach their children: ye came and stood also under the hill, and the hill burnt with fire: even unto the midst of heaven, and there was darkness, clouds and mist. And the Lord spake unto you out of the fire and ye heard the voice of the words: But saw no image, save heard a voice only.
FIFTH BOOK OF MOSES Chpt 11
Put up therefore these my words in your hearts and in your souls, and bind them for a sign unto your hands, and let them be as papers of remembrance between your eyes, and teach them your children: so that thou talk of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down and when thou risest up: yea and write them upon the doorposts of thine house and upon thy gates, that your days may be multiplied and the days of your children upon the earth which the Lord sware unto your fathers to give them, as long as the days of heaven last upon the earth. For if ye shall keep all these commandments which I command you, so that ye do them and love the Lord your God and walk in all his ways and cleave unto him. Then will the Lord cast out all these nations and ye shall conquer them which are both greater and mightier than yourselves. All the places whereon the soles of your feet shall tread, shall be yours: even from the wilderness and from Libanon and from the river Euphrates, even unto the uttermost sea shall your coasts be. There shall no man be able to stand before you: the Lord your God shall cast the fear and dread of you upon all lands whither ye shall come, as he hath said unto you.
Behold, I set before you this day, a blessing and a curse: a blessing: if ye hearken unto the commandments of the Lord your God which I command you this day: And a curse: if ye will not hearken unto the commandments of the Lord your God: but turn out of the way which I command you this day to go after strange gods which ye have not known.
FIFTH BOOK OF MOSES Chpt 18
The Lord thy God will stir up a Prophet among you: even of thy brethren like unto me: and unto him ye shall hearken according to all that thou desiredest of the Lord thy God in Horeb in the day when the people were gathered saying: Let me hear the voice of my Lord God no more, nor see this great fire any more, that I die not. And the Lord said unto me: they have well spoken, I will raise them up a prophet from among their brethren like unto thee and will put my words into his mouth and he shall speak unto them all that I shall command him. And whosoever will not hearken unto the words which he shall speak in my name, I will require it of him.
But the prophet which shall presume to speak ought in my name which I commanded him not to speak, and he that speaketh in the name of strange Gods, the same prophet shall die. And if thou say in thine heart, how shall I know that which the Lord hath not spoken? When a prophet speaketh in the name of the Lord, if the thing follow not nor come to pass, that is the thing which the Lord hath not spoken. But the prophet hath spoken it presumptuously: be not afeared therefore of him

THE PSALMS Chpt 50
But unto the ungodly saith God: Why doest preach my laws, and takest my covenant in thy mouth? Where as thou hatest to be reformed, and cast my words behind thee. If thou seest a thief, thou runnest with him, and art partaker with the *advouters.
Thou lettest thy mouth speak wickedness, and thy tongue paineth deceit. Thou sittest and speakest against thy brother, yee and scandalize thine own mothers son.
This thou doest, while I hold my tongue: and thinkest me to be even such one as thyself: but I will reprove thee, and set myself against thee.
O consider this, ye that forget God: lest I pluck you away, and there be none to deliver you.
Whoso offereth me thanks and praise, he honoreth me: and this is the way, whereby I will show him the saving health of God
THE PROVERBS Chpt 1
Wisdom crieth without and putteth forth her voice in the streets. She calleth before the congregation in the open gates, and showeth her words through the city saying: O' ye children how long will ye live childishly? how long will the scorners delight in scorning, and the unwise be enemies unto knowledge? O' turn you unto my correction: lo, I will express my mind unto you, and make you understand my words. Seeing then that I have called, and ye refused it, I have stretched out my hand, and no man regarded it, but all my counsels ye have despised and set my corrections to naught. Therefore shall I also laugh in your destruction, and mock you, when the thing that you fear cometh upon you: even when the thing that ye be afraid of, falleth in suddenly like a storm, and your misery like a tempest: yee when trouble and heaviness come upon you. Then shall they call upon me, but I will not hear: they shall seek me early, but they shall not find me: And that because they hated knowledge, and received not fear of the Lord, but abhorred my counsel, and despised my correction. Therefore shall they eat the fruits of their own way, and be filled with their own counsels: for the turning away of the unwise shall slay them, and the prosperity of fools shall be their own destruction. But who so hearkeneth unto me shall dwell safely, and have enough without any fear of evil
THE PROVERBS Chpt 2
My son, if thou wilt receive my words, and *keep my commandments by thee, that thine ear may hearken unto wisdom, apply thine heart then to understanding. For if thou criest after wisdom, and callest after knowledge: If thou seekest her as after money, and diggest for her as for treasures: then shalt thou understand the fear of the Lord, and find the knowledge of God. For it is the Lord that giveth wisdom, out of his mouth cometh knowledge and understanding. He preserveth the welfare of the righteous, and defendeth them that walk innocently: He keepeth them in the right path, and preserveth the way of his saints. Then shalt thou understand righteousness, judgment and equity, yee and every good path. If wisdom enter into thine heart, and thy soul delight in knowledge: then shall counsel preserve thee, and understanding shall keep thee. That thou mayest be delivered from the evil way, and from the man that speaketh *froward things. From such as leave the high street, and walk in the ways of darkness: Which rejoice in doing evil, and delight in wicked things: Whose ways are crooked, and their paths *sclanderous. That thou mayest be delivered from the strange woman, and from her that is not thine own: which giveth sweet words, forsaketh the husband of her youth, and fogeteth the covenant of her God. For her house is inclineth unto death, and her paths into hell. All they that go unto her, come not again, neither take they hold of the way of life. That thou mayest walk in the *good way, and keep the paths of the righteous. For the just shall dwell in the land, and the *innocent shall remain in it. but the ungodly shall be rooted out of the land, and the wicked doers shall be taken out of it

THE PROVERBS Chpt 4
Hear, O' ye children, the fatherly exhortation, and take good heed, that ye may learn wisdom. Yee I shall give you a good *reward, if ye will not forsake my law. For when I my self was my fathers dear son, and tenderly beloved of my mother, he taught me also, saying: Let thine heart receive my words, keep my commandments, and thou shalt live. Get thee wisdom, get thee understanding, forget not the words of my mouth, and shrink not from them. Forsake her not, and she shall preserve thee: love her, and she shall keep thee. The chief point of wisdom is, that thou be willing to obtain wisdom, and before all thy goods to get understanding. Make much of her and she shall promote thee: Yee if thou embrace her, she shall bring thee unto honor.
She shall make thee a gracious head, and garnish thee with a crown of glory. Hear, my son, and receive my words, that the years of thy life may be many. I will show thee, the way of wisdom, and lead thee in the right paths. So if thou goest therin, the way of wisdom, there shall no *straiteness hinder thee: and when thou runnest, thou shalt not fall. Take fast hold of doctrine, let her not go: keep her for she is thy life. Come not in the path of the ungodly, and walk not in the way of the wicked. Eschue it, and go not therin: depart aside, and pass over by it. For they cannot sleep, except they have first done some mischief: neither take they any rest, except they have first done some harm. For they eat the bread of wickedness, and drink the wine of *robbery. The path of the righteous shineth as the light, and is ever brighter and brighter unto the perfect day. But the way of the ungodly is as the darkness, wherein men fall, or they be a war.
My son, *mark my words, and incline thine ear unto my sayings. Let them not depart from thine eyes, keep them even in the midst of thine heart. For they are life unto all those that find them, and health unto all their bodies. Keep thine heart with all diligence, *for there upon hangeth life. Put away from thee a *froward mouth, and let the lips of *sclander be far from thee. Let thine eyes behold the thing that is right, and let thine eyelids look straight before thee. Ponder the path of thy feet, so shall all thy ways be sure. Turn not aside, neither to the right hand nor to the left, but withhold thy foot from evil

THE PROVERBS Chpt 7
My son, keep my words, and lay up my commandments by thee. Keep my commandments and my law even as the apple of thine eye, and thou shalt live. Bind them upon thy fingers, write them in the table of thine heart. Say unto wisdom: Thou art my sister, and call understanding thy kinswoman: That she may keep thee from the strange woman, and from the harlot which giveth sweet words. From the window of my house I looked through the trellis, and beheld the simple people: and among other young folks I spied one young fool going over the streets, by the corner in the way toward the harlots house in the twilight of the evening, when it began now to be night and dark. And behold, there met him a woman in an harlots apparel ( a deceitful, wanton and an unsteadfast woman: whos feet could not abide in the house, now is she without, now in the streets, and lurketh in every corner.) She caught the young man, kissed him, and was not ashamed, saying: I had a vow to pay, and this day I perform it. Therefore I came forth to meet thee, that I might seek thy face, and so I have found thee. I have decked my bed with coverings and clothes of Egypt. My bed have I made with to smell of Myrrh, Aloes, and Cinnamon. Come, let us lie together, and take our pleasure till it be day light. For the goodman is not at home, he is gone a far off. He hath taken the bag of money with him: who can tell when he cometh home? Thus with many sweet words she over came him, and with her flattering lips she *wanne him.
Immediately he followed her, as it were an ox to the slaughter ( like as it were to the stocks, where fools are punished ) so long till he had wounded his liver with her dart: like as if a bird hasted to the snare, not knowing that the peril of his life lieth thereupon. Hear me now therefore, O' my son, and mark the words of my mouth. Let not thine heart wander in her ways, and be not thou deceived in her paths. For many a strong man hath she slain. Her houses is the way to hell, where men go down into the chambers of death
*wanne from wane meaning to gradually reduce and subdue. This is to say in the spirit, as she leadeth to hell. RN
ESAI or ISAIAH Chpt 28
Woe to the crown of pride, to the drunken *Ephraimites, and to the fading flower, to the glory of his pomp, that is upon the top of the plentious valley: which men be overladen with wine. Behold, the strength and power of the Lord shall break into the land on every side, like a tempest of hail, that beareth down strongholds, and like an horrible, mighty and overflowing water. And the proud crown of the drunken Ephraimites, shall be trodden under foot. And as the fading flower, which is upon the top of the plentious valley: it shall happen unto him, as to an untimely fruit before the harvest come. Which as soon as it is seen, is by and by devoured, or ever it come well in a mans hand.
And then shall the Lord of Hosts be a joyful crown, and a glorious garland unto the remnant of his people. Unto the lowly, he shall be a spirit of Judgement, and unto them that drive away the enemies from the gates, he shall be a spirit of strength. But they go wrong by the reason of wine, they fall and *stacker because of strong drink. Yee even the priests and prophets themselves go amiss, they are drunken with wine, and weak brained through strong drink. They error in seeing, and in judgement they fail. for all tables are so full of vomit and filthiness, that no place is clean. What is he among them, that can teach, instruct or inform the children, which are weened from suck or taken from the breasts: of any other fashion then: Command that may be commanded, bid that may be bidden, forbid that may be forbidden, keep back that may be kept back, here a little there a little. And therefore the Lord also shall speak with lisping lips and with a strange language unto this people, to whom he spake afore of this manner: This shall bring rest, if one refresh the weary, yee this shall bring rest. But they had no will to hear. And therefore the Lord shall answer their stubbornness. Command that may be commanded, bid that my be bidden, forbid that may be forbidden, keep back that may be kept back, here a little there a little. That they may go forth, fall backward, be bruised, snared, and taken. Wherefore hear the word of the Lord, ye mockers that rule the Lords people, which is at Jerusalem. For ye comfort yourselves thus: Tush, death and we are at point, and as for hell, we have made a condition with it, that though it break out any sore plague, it shall not come upon us. For with deceit we shall escape, and with nimbleness we will defend ourselves. Therefore saith the Lord God: Behold, I will lay a stone in Sion, a great stone, a costly corner stone, for a sure foundation: that who so putteth his trust in him, shall not be confounded. Righteousness will I set up again in the balance, and judgement in the weights. The tempest of hail shall take away your refuge, that ye have to deceive withal: and the overflowing waters shall break down your strongholds of dissimulation. Thus the appointment you have made with death, shall be done away: and the condition that ye made with hell, shall not stand. When the great destruction goeth through, it shall all to tread you. It shall take you quiet away before it. For it shall go forth early in the morning, and continue only that day and that night. And the very fear only shall teach you, when ye hear it. For the bed shall be so narrow that a man can not lie upon it: And the covering to small, that a man may not wind himself therin. For the Lord shall step forth as he did upon the mount Perazim, and take on as he did upon the dale of Gabaon: that he may bring forth his device, his strange device: and fulfill his work, his wonderful work. And therefore make no mocks at it, that your captivity increase not: for I have heard the Lord God of Hosts say, that there shall come a sudden destruction and plague upon the whole earth. Take heed, and hear my voice, ponder and *mark my words well. Goeth not the houseband man ever in due season earnestly to his land? He moweth and ploweth his ground to sow. And when he hath made it plain, he soweth it with *fetches or *comin. He soweth the wheat and Barley in their place, Milium and Rye also in their place. And that he may do it right, his God teacheth him and showeth him. For he treadeth not the fitches out with a *wane, neither bringeth he the cart here and there over the comin, but he thresheth the fitches out with a flayle, and the comin with a rod. As for the wheat, he grindeth it to make bread thereof, In as much as he can not bring it to pass with treading out. For neither the bruising that the cart wheels make, ner his beasts can grind it. This and such like things come of the Lord of Hosts which is marvelous in counsel, and great in righteousness

Ye shall knock upon your breasts, because of the pleasant field, and because of the fruitful vineyard. My peoples field shall bring thorns and thistles for every house is voluptuousness: and in the cities, wilfulness. The palaces also shall be broken, and the greatly occupied cities desolate. The towers and bulwarks shall be become dens for evermore, the pleasure of Mules shall be turned to pasture for sheep: unto the time, that the spirit be poured upon us from above.
Then shall the wilderness be a fruitful field, and the fruitful field be reckoned for a wood. Then shall equity dwell in the desert, and righteousness in the fruitful land. And the reward of righteousness shall be peace, and her fruit rest and quietness for ever. And my people shall dwell in the inns of peace, in my tabernacle and pleasure where there is enough in them all. And when the hail falleth, it shall fall in the wood and in the city.

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

Thus saith the Lord: go into the streets, consider and make inquisition for the old way: and if it be the good and right way: then go therin, that ye may find rest for your souls. But if they say: we will not walk therin, and I will set watchmen over you, and therefore take heed unto the voice of the trumpet. But they say: we will not take heed. Hear therefore ye Gentiles, and thou congregation shalt know, what I have devised for them. Hear thou earth also: behold, I will cause a plague upon this people, even the fruit of their own imaginations.
For they have not been obedient unto my words and my law, but abhorred them. Wherefore bring ye me incense from Saba, and sweet smelling Calamus from far countries? Your burnt offerings displease me, and I rejoice not in your sacrifices.
And therefore thus saith the Lord: Behold, I will make this people fall, and there shall fall from among them the father with the children, one neighbor shall perish with another.
Moreover thus saith the Lord: Behold, there shall come a people from the North, and a great people shall rise from the ends of the earth, with bows and with darts shall they be weaponed: It is a rough an fierce people, an unmerciful people: their voice roareth like the sea, they ride upon horses well appointed to the battle against thee, O daughter Sion. Then shall this cry be heard: Our arms are feeble, heaviness an sorrow is come upon us, as upon a woman travailing with child. No man goeth forth in to the field, no man come upon the high street: for the sword and fear of the enemy shall be on every side.
Wherefore gird thee a sackcloth about thee ( O daughter of my people ) sprinkle thyself with ashes, mourn and weep bitterly, as upon the only beloved son: for the destroyer shall suddenly fall upon us. Thee have I set as a prover of my hard people, to seek out and try their ways. For they are all unfaithful and fallen away, they hang upon filthy lucre, they are clean brass and iron, for they have hurt and destroyed every man. The bellows are burnt in the fire, the lead is consumed, the melter melteth in vain, for the evil is not taken away from them. Therefore shall they be called naughty silver, because the Lord hath cast them out.

Heal me, O' Lord, and I shall be whole: save me, and I shall be saved, for thou art my praise. Behold, these men say unto me: Where is the word of the Lord? Let it come. Where as I nevertheless leading the flock in thy ways, have compelled none by violence. For I never desired any mans death, this knowest thou well. my words also are right before thee. Be not now terrible unto me, O' Lord, for thou art he in whom I hope, when I am in peril. Let my persecutors be confounded, but not me: let them be afraid, and not me. Thou shalt bring upon them the time of their plague, and shall destroy them right sore.

And therefore the Lord of Hosts giveth you this warning: Hear not the words of the prophets, that preach unto you, and deceive you: for they speak the meaning of their own heart, and not out of the mouth of the Lord. They say unto them, that despise me: The Lord hath spoken it: Tush, ye shall prosper right well. And unto all them, that walk after the lusts of their own heart, they say: Tush , there shall no misfortune happen you. For who hath sitten in the counsel of the Lord, that he hath heard and understand, what he is about to do? Who hath marked his devise, and heard it? Behold, the stormy weather of the Lord, that is, his indignation, shall go forth, and shall fall down upon the head of the ungodly. And the wrath of the Lord shall not turn away again, until he perform and fulfil the thought of his heart. And in the latter days ye shall know his meaning.
I have not sent these Prophets ( sayeth the Lord ) and yet they ran. I have not spoken to them, and yet they preached. But if they had continued in my counsel and heard my words: they had turned my people from their evil ways and wicked imaginations. Am I then God that seeth but the thing, which is nye at hand, and not that is afar off? sayeth the Lord. May any man hideth himself so, that I shall not see him? saith the Lord. Do not I fulfill heaven and earth? saith the Lord. I have heard well enough, what the prophets say, that preach lies in my name, saying: I have dreamed, I have dreamed. How long will this continue in the prophets hearts, to tell lies, and to preach the crafty subtlety of their own heart? Whose purpose is ( with the dreams that everyone tell ) to make my people to forget my name, as their forefathers did, when Baal came up. The prophet that hath a dream, let him tell it: and he that understandeth my word, let him show it faithfully

I will make of them a wilderness, a mocking, and a continual desert.
Moreover, I will take from them the voice of gladness and solace, the voice of the bridegroom, and the bride, the voice of the anointed, with the *cresshettes : and this whole land shall become a wilderness, and they shall serve the said people and the king of Babylon, *three score years and ten. When the seventy years are expired, I will visit also the wickedness of the king of Babylon and his people saith the Lord: yee and the land of the Caldees, and will make it a perpetual wilderness, and will fulfil all my words upon that land which I have devised against it: yee all that is written in this book, which Jeremie hath prophesied of all people: so that they also shall be subdued unto diverse nations and great kings, for I will recompense them, according to their deeds and works of their own hands.
For thus hath the Lord God of Israel spoken unto me: Take this wine cup of indignation from my hand, that thou mayest cause all the people, to whom I send thee, for to drink of it: that when they have drunken thereof, they may be mad, and out of their wits, when the sword cometh, that I will send among them. Then took I the cup from the Lords hand, and made all the people drink thereof, unto whom the Lord had sent me. But first the city of Jerusalem, and all the cities of Judah, their kings and princes: to make them desolate, waste, despised and cursed according as it is come to pass this day. Yee and Pharao the king of Egypt, his servants, his princes and his people altogether one with another and all the kings of the land of Huz, all the kings of the Philistines land, Ascalon, Azah, Accaron and the remnant of Asood, the Edomites, the Moabites, and the Ammonites: all the kings of Tirus, and Sidon: the kings of the Isles, that are beyond the sea, Dedan, Thema, Buz and the shaven Ismaelites: all the kings of Araby, and ( generally ) all the kings that dwell in the desert: all the kings of Zamri, all the Kings of Elam, all the kings of the Meedes, all kings towards the north, whether they be far or nye, everyone with his neighbors: Yee and all the kingdoms that are upon the whole earth. The king of Sezach, said he, shall drink with them also.
And said thou unto them: This is the commandment of the Lord of hosts the God of Israel: Drink and be drunken, spue and fall, that ye never rise: and that through the sword, which I will send among you. But if they will not receive the cup of thy hand, and drink it, then tell them: Thus doth the Lord of Hosts threaten you: drink it ye shall, and that shortly. For lo, I bring a plague to the city, that my name is given unto: think ye then, that I will leave you unpunished? Ye shall not go quiet. For why, I call for a sword upon all the inhabitants of the earth, saith the Lord of hosts.
Therefore tell them all these words, and say unto them: The Lord shall cry from above, and let his voice be heard from his holy habitation. With a great noise shall he cry from his court regal. He shall give a great voice ( like the grape gatherers ) and the sound thereof shall be heard unto the ends of the world. For the Lord hath a judgement to give upon all people, and will hold his court of justice with all flesh and punish the ungodly, saith the Lord.
For thus saith the Lord of Hosts: Behold, a miserable plague shall go from one people to another, and a great stormy water shall arise from all the ends of the earth. And the same day shall the Lord himself slay them, from one end of the earth to another. There shall no moan be made for any of them, none gathered up, none buried: but shall lie as dung upon the ground.
Mourn ( O ye shepherds ) and cry: sprinkle yourselves with ashes, O ye rams of the flock: for the time of your slaughter is fulfilled, and ye shall fall like vessels conningly made for pleasure.
The shepherds shall have no way to flee, and the rams of the flock shall not escape. Then shall the shepherds cry horribly, and the rams of the flock shall mourn: for the Lord shall consume their pasture, and their best fields shall lie dead because of the horrible wrath of the Lord. They shall forsake their folds like an lion: for their land shall be waste, because of the wrath of the destroyer, and because of his fearful indignation
JEREMIE or JEREMIAH Chpt 35
But now that Nabuchodonosor the king of Babylon came up into the land, we said come, let us go to Jerusalem, that we may escape the host of the Caldees and the Assyrians: and so we dwell now at Jerusalem. Then came the word of the Lord unto Jeremy saying: Thus saith the Lord of hosts the God of Israel: Go and tell whole Judah and all the inhabitantors of Jerusalem: Will ye not be reformed, to obey my words? saith the Lord. The words which Jonadab the son of Rechab commanded his sons, that they should drink no wine, are fast and surely kept: for unto this day they drink no wine but obey their fathers commandment. But as for me, I have stand up early, I have spoken unto you, and given you earnest warning: and yet have ye not been obedient unto me. Yee I have sent my servants, all the prophets unto you, I rose up early, and sent you word, saying: O turn you, every man from his wicked way: amend your lives, and go not after strange gods, to worship them: that ye may continue in the land, which I have given unto you and your fathers, but ye would neither hear me, ner follow me.
The children of Jonadab Rachabs son have steadfastly kept their fathers commandment, that he gave them, but this people is not obedient unto me. And therefore thus saith the Lord of hosts the God of Israel: Behold, I will bring upon Judah and upon everyone that dwelleth in Jerusalem, all the trouble that I have devised against them. For I have spoken unto them, but they would not follow: I have called unto them, nevertheless they would give me no answer. Jeremy also spake unto the household of the Rechabites: Thus saith the Lord of Hosts the God of Israel: For so much as ye have obeyed the commandment of Jonadab your father, and kept all his precepts, and done according unto all that he hath bidden you: Therefore thus saith the Lord of Hosts, the God of Israel: Jonadab the son of Rechab shall not fail, but have one of his stock, to stand alway before me

THE FOURTH BOOK OF ESDRAS Chpt 8
And this now I speak of all men in general, as thou knowest: but of thy people, for whose sake I am sorry: and of thy inheritance: for whose cause I mourn: and of Israel, for whom I am woeful: and for Jacob, for whos sake I am grieved: therefore begin I to pray before thee, for myself and for them, for I see the fall of us even of us, that dwell upon earth. But I have heard the swiftness of the judge, which is to come: therefore hear my voice, and understand my words, and I shall speak before thee.
This is the beginning of the words of Esdras before he was received: O' Lord, thou that dwellest in everlastingness, whose eyes are lifted up in the air, whose stool is exceedingly high, whose glory and majesty may not be comprehended, before whom the Host of heaven stand with trembling, whose keeping is turned in wind and fire, whose word is true, whose talking is steadfast, whose commandment is strong, whose ordinance is fearful, whose look drieth up the depths, whose wrath maketh the mountains to melt away, and whose truth beareth witness: O' hear the prayer of thy servant, and mark with thy ears the petition of thy creature.
For while I live, I will speak, and so long as I have understanding, I will answer. O' look not upon the sins of thy people, which serve in the truth. Have no respect for the wicked studies of the Heathen, but to the desire of those that keep thy testimonies with sorrows. Think not upon those that have walked *feintly before thee, but upon them, which with will have known thy fear.
Let it not be thy will to destroy them, which have had beastly manners, but to look upon them that have clearly taught thy law. Take thou no indignation at them, which are worse then beasts: but love them, that always put their trust in thy righteousness and glory: for we and our fathers have all the same sickness and disease, but because of our sins thou shalt be called merciful.
For thou hast mercy upon us thou shalt be called merciful, where as we have no works of righteousness: for the righteous which have laid up many good works together, shall out of their deeds receive reward. For what is a man, that thou shouldest displeasure at him? Or what is the corruptible generation, that thou shouldest be so rough toward him?
For of truth there is no man among them that be born, but he hath dealt wickedly: and among the faithful there is none, which hath not done amiss. For in this ( O' Lord ) thy righteousness and thy goodness shall be praised and declared, if thou be merciful unto them, which are not rich in good works.
Then answered he me and said: Some things hast thou spoken right and according unto thy words it shall be. For I will not verily consider the works of them, which have sinned before death, before the judgement, before destruction, but I will rejoice over the work and thought of the righteous, the holy making and the reward. Like as I have spoken now, so shall it come to pass. For as the husband man soweth much seed upon the ground, and planteth many trees, and yet always the thing that is sown or planted is not all kept safe, neither does it all take root: Even so is it of them that are sown in the world, they shall not all be preserved.
I answered then and said: If I have found grace, then let me speak. Like as the husband man seed perisheth, if it not receive rain in due season, or if there come to much rain upon it: Even so perisheth a man also, which is created with thy hands, and is like unto thine own image and to thy self, for whos sake thou hast made all things, and likened him unto the husband mans seed. Be not wroth at us, O' Lord, but spare thy people, and have mercy upon thine own inheritance: O' be merciful unto thy creature.
Then answered he me and said: Things present are for the present, and things to come for as such as be to come. For thou wantest yet much, seeing thou may lovest my creature above me: I have often times drawn near unto thee, but never to the unrighteous. In this also thou art marvelous before the Highest, in that thou has humbled thy self, as it becometh thee, and hast not regarded thine own self, that thou art had in such honor among the righteous. Therefore shall great wretchedness and misery come upon them, that in the later time shall dwell in the world, for they have walked in great pride.
But understand thou for thyself, and seek out glory for such as be like thee: for unto you paradise is opened, the tree of life is planted, the time to come is prepared, plenteousness is made ready: a city is builded for you, and a rest is prepared, yee perfect goodness and wisdom. The root of evil is marked from you, the weakness and moth is hid from you, and into hell flyeth corruption in forgetfulness. Sorrows are vanished away, and in that end is shown the treasure of immortality. And therefore ask no more questions, concerning the multitude of them that perish. For they have taken liberty, despised the Highest, thought scorn of his law, and forsaken his ways.
Moreover they have trodden down his righteousness, and said in their heart, that their is no God, yee and that wittingly, for they die. For like as the thing that I have spoken of, is made ready for you: Even so is thirst and pain prepared for them. For it was not his will that man should come to naught: but they which be created have defiled the name of him that made them, and are unthankful unto him, which prepared life for them. And therefore is my judgement now at hand. These things have I not showed unto all men, but unto few: namely unto thee, and such as be like thee.
Then answered I and said: Behold O' Lord, now hast thou showed me the multitude of thy tokens, which thou wilt begin to do at the last but at what time and when thou hast not showed me
*feintly =dodge, maneuver, pose, pretend
THE FOURTH BOOK OF ESDRAS Chpt 9
He answered me then and said: Measure thou the time diligently in it self, when thou seest that one part of the tokens come to pass, which I have told thee before: so shalt thou understand, that it is the very same time, wherein the Highest will begin to visit the world, which he made. And when there shall be seen earthquake and uproar of the people in the world, then shalt thou well understand, that the most Highest spoke of these things, from the days that were before thee, even from the beginning.
For like as all that is made in the world, hath a beginning and end, and the end is manifest: Even so the times also of the Highest have plain beginnings in wonders and signs, and the end in working and in tokens. And every one that shall be saved, and shall be able to escape by his works and by faith, wherein ye have believed, shall be preserved from the said perils, and shall see my favor in my land and within my borders, for I have hallowed me from the world. Then shall they be in carefulness, which now have abused my ways: and they that have cast them out despitefully, shall dwell in pains.
For such as in their life have received benefits and have not known me, and they that have abhorred my law, while they had yet freedom, and when they had yet open room of amendment and consideration, and understood not, but despised it: that same must know it after death is pain. And therefore be thou no more careful, how the ungodly shall be punished, and how the righteous shall be saved, and whose the world is, and for whom the world, and when it is. Then answered I and said: I have talked before and now I speak, and will speak also here after, that there be many more of them which perish, then shall be saved, like as the flood is greater then the drops.
And he answered me, saying: as the field is, so is also the seed: as the flowers be, so are the colors also: such as the workman is, such is also the work: and as the husband man is himself, so is his husbandry also, for it was the time of the world. And when I prepared for them that are now, or ever the world was made, wherein they should dwell, then was there no man that withstood me. Now when every one was , and the maker also in the world which is now prepared, and the month that ceased not, and the law which is unsearchable, their manners were corrupt. So I considered the world, and behold there was peril, because of the thoughts that were come into it. And I saw, and spared them greatly, and have kept me a wineberry of the grapes, and a plant from among many generations. Let the multitude perish then, which are grown up in vain, and let my grape and wineberry be kept: even my plant: for with great labor I have made it up.
Nevertheless if thou wilt take upon thee yet seven days more ( but thou shall not fast in them ) go thy way then into the field of flowers, where no house is builded, and eat only of the flowers of the field, taste not flesh, drink no wine, but eat flowers only. Pray unto the Highest continually, so will I come, and talk with thee.
So I went my way and came in to the field which is called *Ardath ( like as he commanded me ) and there I sat among the flowers, and ate of the herbs of the field, and the meat of the same satisfied me. After seven days I sat upon the grass, and my heart was vexed within me like afore: and I opened my mouth, and began to talk before the Highest, and said: O' Lord, thou that showest thy self to us, thou hast declared and opened thy self unto our fathers in the wilderness, in a place where no man dwelleth, in a barren place, when they came out of Egypt, and thou speakest saying: Hear me O Israel, and mark my words thou seed of Jacob. Behold, I saw my law in you, and it shall bring fruit in you, and yee shall be honored in it forever. For our fathers which received the law, kept it not, and observed not thy ordinances and statutes, and the fruit of thy law was not declared: for it might not, for why? it was thine. For they that received it, perished, because they kept not the thing that was sown in them.
It is a custom when the ground receiveth seed, or the sea a ship, or a vessel meat and drink, that when it perisheth or is broken wherein a thing is sown, or where any thing is put: the things also perish and are broken, which are sown or put therein. But unto us it hath not happened so: for we that have received the law, perish in sin, and sure heart which also received the law: not withstanding the law perisheth not, but remaineth in his labor.
And when I considered these things in my heart after this manner, I looked about me with mine eyes, and upon the right side I saw a woman, which mourned sore, made great lamentation, and wept with loud voice: her clothes were rent in pieces, and she had ashes on her head.
Then let I my thoughts go, that I was in, and turned me unto her, and said: wherefore weepiest thou? why art thou so sorry and discomforted? And she said unto me: Sir, let me bewail myself and take yet more sorrow: for I am sore vexed in my mind, and brought very low. And I said unto her: what aileth thee? Or who hath done anything to thee? tell me. She said: I have been unfruitful and barren, and have had a husband thirty years. And these thirty years I do nothing else day and night and all hours, but make my prayer to the Highest. After thirty years God heard me thy handmaiden, looked upon my misery, considered my trouble, and gave me a son, and I was glad of him, so was my husband also and all my neighbors, and we gave great honor unto the Mighty. And I nourished him with great travail. So when he grew up, and came to the time, that he should have a wife, I made a feast

THE GOSPELL OF ST. JOHN Chpt 1
In the beginning was the word, and the word was with God: and the word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by it, and without it, was made nothing that was made. In it was life, and the life was the light of men, and the light shineth in the darkness, but the darkness comprehended it not.
THE GOSPELL OF ST. JOHN Chpt 14
And he said unto his disciples: Let not your hearts be troubled. Believe in God, and believe in me. In my fathers house are many mansions. If it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go to prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you even unto myself that where I am, there may ye be also. And whither I go ye know, and the way ye know.
Thomas said unto him: Lord we know not whither thou goest. Also how is it possible for us to know the way? Jesus said unto him: I am the way, the truth and the life. And no man cometh unto the father, but by me. If ye had known me, ye had known my father also. And now ye know him, and have seen him.
THE GOSPELL OF ST. JOHN Chpt 6
Then said they unto him: Lord, evermore give us this bread. And Jesus said unto them: I am that bread of life. He that cometh to me shall not hunger: and he that believeth on me shall never thirst. But I said unto you: that ye have seen me, and yet believe not. All that the father giveth me shall come to me: and him that cometh to me, I cast not away. For I came down from heaven: not to do mine own will, but his will which hath sent me. And this is the fathers will which hath sent me, that of all which he hath given me, I should lose nothing: but should raise it up again at the last day. And this is the will of him that sent me: that every man which seeth the son and believeth on him, have everlasting life. And I will raise him up at the last day. The Jewes then murmured at him, because he said: I am that bread which is come down from heaven. And they said: Is not this Jesus the son of Joseph, whose father and mother we know? How is it then that he sayeth, I came down from heaven? Jesus answered and said unto them. Murmur not between yourselves. No man can come to me except the father which hath sent me, draw him. And I will raise him up at the last day. It is written in the Prophets, that they shall all be taught of God. Every man therefore that hath heard and hath learned of the father cometh unto me. Not that any man hath seen the father, save he which is of God, the same hath seen the father.
Verily, verily I say unto you, he that believeth on me, hath everlasting life. I am that bread of life. Your fathers did eat Manna in the wilderness and are dead? This is that bread which cometh from heaven that he which eateth of it, should also not die. I am that living bread which came down from heaven. If any man eat of this bread, he shall live forever. And the bread that I will give, is my flesh, which I will give for the life of the world.
