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.

ESAI or ISAIAH Chpt 3
Then shall he swear and say: I can not help you. Moreover, there is neither meat nor clothing in my house, make me no ruler of the people. For Jerusalem and Juda must decay, because both their words and counsel are against the Lord, they provoke the presence of his Majesty unto anger. The changing of their countenance betrayeth them, yee they declare their own sins themselves, as the Sodomites, and hide them not. Woe be unto their souls, for they shall be heavily rewarded. Then shall they say: O happy are the godly, for they may enjoy the fruits of their studies. But woe be unto the ungodly and unrighteous for they shall be rewarded after their works. O my people, *ribaudes oppress thee, and women have rule of thee. O my people, thy leaders deceive thee, and tread out the way of thy footsteps. The Lord is here to commune of the matter, and standeth to give judgement with the people. The Lord shall come forth to reason with the Senators and princes of his people, and shall say thus unto them: It is ye that have burnt up my vineyard, the robbery of the poor is in your house. Wherefore do ye oppress my people, and marred the faces of the innocents? thus shall the Lord God of Hosts revile them.
Moreover thus sayeth the Lord: Seeing the daughters of Sion are become so proud, and come in with stretched out necks, and with vain wanton eyes: seeing they come in tripping so nicely with their feet: Therefore shall the Lord shave the heads of the daughters of Sion, and make their beauty bare in the day. In that day shall the Lord take away the gorgeousness of their apparel, and spangles, chains, *partlets, and collars, bracelets and hooves, that goodly flowered wide and boarded raiment, brushes and head bands, rings and garlands, holy day clothes and veils, kerchiefs and pins, glasses and smocks, bonnets and *taches
And instead of good smell there shall be stink among them. And for their girdles there shall be loose bands. And for well set hair there shall be baldness. Instead of a stomacher, a sackcloth, and for their beauty witherdness and *son burning. Their husbands and their mighty men shall perish with the sword in battle.

Who so dwelleth under the defense of the most highest, and abideth under the shadow of the Almighty.When he calleth upon me, I shall hear him: Yee I am with him in his trouble, whereout I will deliver him, and bring him to honor.
He shall say unto the Lord: O' my hope, and my stronghold, my God, in whom I will I trust. For he shall deliver thee from the snare of the hunter, and from the noisome pestilence. He shall cover thee under his wings, that thou mayest be safe under his feathers: his faithfulness and his truth shall be thy shield and buckler.
So that thou shalt not need to be afraid for any bugs by night, ner for the arrow that flieth by day. For the pestilence that creepeth in the darkness, ner the sickness that destroyeth in the noonday.
A thousand shall fall beside thee, and ten thousand at thy right hand, but it shall not come nye thee.
Yee with thine eyes shalt thou behold, and see the reward of the ungodly.
For thou Lord art my hope, thou hast set thine house of defense very high.
There shall no evil happen unto thee, neither shall any plague come nye thy dwelling.
For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways.
They shall bear thee in their hands, that thou hurt not thy foot against a stone.
Thou shalt go upon the Lion and Adder, the young Lion and the Dragon shalt thou tread under thy feet.
Because he hath set his love upon me, I shall deliver him: I shall defend him, for he hath known my name.
With long life will I satisfy him, and show him my salvation
FOURTH BOOK OF MOSES Chpt 22
And Balam rose up early and saddled his ass and went with the lords of Moab. But God was angry because he went. And the angel of the Lord stood in the way against him. And he rid upon his ass and two servants with him. And when the ass saw the angel of the Lord stand in the way and his sword drawn in his hand, she turned aside out of the way and went out into the field. And Balam smote the ass, to turn her into the way.
And the angel of the Lord went and stood in a path between the vineyards, where was a wall on the one side and another on the other. When the ass saw the angel of the Lord, she wrenched unto the wall and thrust Balams foot unto the wall, and he smote her again. And the angel of the Lord went further and stood in a narrow place, where was no way to turn, either to the right hand or to the left. And when the ass saw the angel of the Lord, she fell down under Balam: and Balam was wrath and smote the ass with a staff. And the Lord opened the mouth of the ass, and she said unto Balam: what have I done unto thee, that thou smitest me thus three times? And Balam said unto the Ass: because thou hast mocked me? I would that I had a sword in mine hand, that I might now kill thee. And the ass said unto Balam: am not I thine Ass which thou hast ridden upon since thou wast born unto this day? Was I ever wont to do so unto thee? And he said, nay.
And the Lord opened the eyes of Balam that he saw the angel of the Lord standing in the way, with his sword drawn in his hand. And he bowed himself and fell flat on his face. And the angel of the Lord said unto him: Wherefore smitest thou thine ass this three times? behold, I came out to resist thee, for the way is contrary unto me, and the ass saw me and avoided me three times: or else (had she not turned from me) I had surely slain thee and saved her alive. And Balam said unto the angel of the Lord: I have sinned: for I knew not that thou stoodest in the way against me. Now therefore if it displease thine eyes, I will turn again. And the angel said unto Balam, go with the men: but in any wise, what I say unto thee, that say. And Balam went with the lords of Balac.
And when Balac heard that Balam was come he went out against him unto a city of Moab that stood in the border of Arnon, which was the utmost part of his country. And Balac said unto Balam: did I not send for thee, to call thee? wherefore camest thou not unto me? thinkest thou that I am not able to promote thee unto honor? And Balam said unto Balac: Lo I am come unto thee. But I can say nothing at all save what God putteth in my mouth that must I speak. And Balam went with Balac, and they came unto the large city. And Balac offered oxen and sheep and sent for Balam and for the lords that were with him
FIRST BOOK OF SAMUEL Chpt 18
And it happened on the morrow, that the evil spirit sent of God came upon Saul, so that he prophesied in the midst of the house. And David played on the instrument with his hand as he was daily *wont. And Saul had a spear in his hand, and hurled it intending to have nailed David to the wall. But David avoided out of his presence two times. For Saul was afeared of David, because the Lord was with him, and was departed from Saul. And then Saul put David from him and made him a captain over a thousand, and he went out and in before the people. And David was wise in all that he took in hand, and the Lord was with him. Wherefore when Saul saw that he was so exceeding wise, he was afraid of him. But all Israel and Juda loved David, because he went out and in before them. Then said Saul to David. Behold my eldest daughter Merob, her I will give thee to wife:
THE PROVERBS Chpt 14
A faithful witness delivereth souls, but a liar deceiveth them.
The fear of the Lord is a stronghold, for unto his he will be a sure defense.
The fear of the Lord is a well of life, to avoid the snares of death.
The increase and prosperity of the commons is the Kings honor, but the decay of the people is the confusion of the Prince.
THE GOSPELL OF ST. MATTHEW Chpt 4
Then was Jesus led away of the spirit into wilderness, to be tempted of the devil. And when he had fasted forty days and forty nights, he was afterward an hungered. Then came to him the tempter, and said: if thou be the son of God, command that these stones be made bread. He answered and said: it is written, man shall not live by bread only, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God
Then the devil took him up into the holy city, and set him on a pinnacle of the temple, and said unto him: if thou be the son of God, cast thy self down. For it is written: he shall give his angels charge over thee, and with their hands they shall hold thee up, that thou dash not thy foot against a stone. And Jesus said to him, it is written also: Thou shall not tempt thy Lord God.
The devil took him up again and led him in to an exceeding high mountain, and showed him all the kingdoms of the world, and all the glory of them, and said to him: all these will I give thee, if thou wilt fall down and worship me. Then said Jesus unto him. avoid, Satan. For it is written, thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.
Then the devil left him, and behold, the angels came and ministered unto him.
THE GOSPELL OF ST. MATTHEW Chpt 18
The same time the disciples came unto Jesus saying: who is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven? Jesus called a child unto him, and set him in the midst of them, and said: Verily I say unto you: except ye turn, and become as children, ye cannot enter into the kingdom of heaven. Whosoever therefore humble himself as this child, the same is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven. And whosoever receiveth such a child in my name, receiveth me. But whosoever offend one of these little ones, which believe in me: it were better for him, that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea. Woe be unto the world because of offenses. How be it, it cannot be avoided but that offences shall be given. Nevertheless woe be to the man, by whom the offense cometh.
Wherefore if thy hand or thy foot offend thee, cut him off and cast him from thee. It is better for thee to enter into life halt or maimed, rather then thou shouldest having two hands or two feet, be cast into everlasting fire. And if also thine eye offend thee, pluck him out and cast him from thee. It is better for thee to enter into life with one eye, than having two eyes to be cast into hell fire. See that ye despise not one of these little ones. For I say unto you, that in heaven their angels always behold the face of my father, which is in heaven. Ye, and the son of man is come to save that which is lost. How think ye? If a man have an hundred sheep, and one of them be gone astray, doth he not leave ninety and nine in the mountains, and go and seek that one which is gone astray? If it happen that he find him, verily I say unto you: he rejoiceth more of that sheep, then of the ninety and nine which went not astray. Even so it is not the will of your father in heaven, that one of these little ones should perish.
Moreover if thy brother trespass against thee. Go and tell him his fault between him and thee alone. If he hear thee, thou hast won thy brother: But if he hear thee not, then take yet with thee one or two, that in the mouth of two or three witnesses, all things may be established. If he hear not them, tell it unto the congregation. If he hear not the congregation, take him as an heathen man and as a publican. Verily I say unto you, whatsoever ye bind on earth, shall be bound in heaven. And whatsoever ye *lowse on earth, shall be *lowsed in heaven. Again I say unto you, that if two of you shall agree in earth upon any manner thing, whatsoever they shall desire: it shall be given them of my father which is in heaven. For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.
Then came Peter to him, and said: master, how oft shall I forgive my brother, if he sin against me, seven times? Jesus said unto him: I say not unto thee seven times: but seventy times seven times. Therefore is the kingdom of heaven likened unto a certain king, which would take accounts of his servants. And when he had begun to reckon, one was brought unto him, which ought him ten thousand talents: whom because he had nought to pay, his master commanded him to be sold, and his wife, and his children, and all that he had, and payment to be made. The servant fell down and besought him saying: Sir, give me *respite, and I will pay it every whit. Then had the lord pity on that servant, and *lowsed him, and forgave him the debt.
*lowse: again as above; low from the Hebrew is to humble. *respite (reprieve),
*ought (owed/ anything) *mete (measured;worthy)
THE GOSPELL OF ST. MARK Chpt 3
And he entered again into the synagogue, and there was a man there which had a withered hand. And they watched him to see, whether he would heal him on the Saboth day, that they might accuse him. And he said unto the man which had the withered hand: arise and stand in the midst. And he said to them: whether is it lawful to do a good deed on the sabboth days, or an evil? to save life or kill? But they held their peace. And he looked round about on them angerly, mourning on the blindness of their hearts, and said to the man, stretch forth thine hand. And he stretched it out. And his hand was restored, even as whole as the other.*benevolence (compassion, kindness) *incontinence (not continuing
And the Pharisees departed, and straight way gathered a counsel, with them that belonged to Herode, against him, that they might destroy him. And Jesus avoided with his disciples to the sea. And a great multitude followed him from Galilee and from *Jurie, and from Jerusalem, and from Jdumea, and from beyond Jordan, and they that dwelled about Tyre and Sidon a great multitude: which when they had heard what things he did, came unto him.
THE GOSPELL OF ST. LUKE Chpt 17
Then said he to the disciples, it cannot be avoided but that offenses will come. Nevertheless woe be to him through whom they come. It were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were cast into the sea, then that he should offend one of these little ones. Take heed to your selves. If thy brother trespass against thee, rebuke him and if he repent, forgive him. And though he sin against thee seven times in a day, and seven times in a day turn again to thee saying: it repenteth me, forgive him.
ST. PAUL TO THE ROMANS Chpt 16
I beseech you brethren, mark them which cause division and give occasions of evil, contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned: and avoid them. For they that are such, serve not the Lord Jesus Christ: but their own bellies, and with sweet preachings and flattering word deceive the hearts of the innocents. For your obedience extendeth to all men. I am glad no doubt of you. But yet I would have you wise unto that which is good, and to be innocent as concerning evil. The God of peace tread Satan under your feet shortly. The grace of our Lord Jesu Christ be with you.
THE FIRST TO THE CORINTHIANS Chpt 7
As concerning the things whereof ye wrote unto me: it is good for a man, not to touch a woman. Nevertheless to avoid fornication, let every man have his wife: and let every woman have her husband. Let the man give unto the wife due *benevolence. Likewise also the wife unto the man. The wife hath not power over her own body: but the husband. And likewise the man hath not power over his own body: but the wife. Withdraw not yourselves one from another, except it be with consent for a time, for to give yourselves to fasting and prayer. And afterward come again to the same thing, lest Satan tempt you for your *incontinence.
This I say of favour, not of commandment. For I would that all men were as I myself am: but every man hath his proper gift of God, one after this manner, another after that. I say unto the unmarried men and widows: it is good for them if they abide even as I do. But and if they cannot abstain, let them marry. For it is better to marry than to burn.
Unto the married command not I, but the Lord: that the wife separate not herself from the man. If she separate herself, let her remain unmarried or be reconciled unto her husband again. And let not the husband put away his wife from him.
To the remnant speak I, and not the Lord. If any brother have a wife that believeth not, if she be content to dwell with him, let him not put her away. And the woman which hath to her husband an infidel, if he consent to dwell with her, let her not put him away. For the unbelieving husband is sanctified by the wife and the unbelieving wife is sanctified by the husband. Or else were your children unclean: but now are they pure. But and if the unbelieving depart, let him depart. A brother or a sister is not in subjection to such. God hath called us in peace. For how knowest thou o woman, whether thou shalt save that man or no? Other how knowest thou o man whether thou shalt save that woman or no? but even as God hath distributed to every man.
THE FIRST TO TIMOTHYE Chpt 6
Charge them that are rich in this world, that they be not exceeding wise, and that they trust not in the uncertain riches, but in the living God, which giveth us abundantly all things to enjoy them, and that they do good, and be rich in good works, and ready to give and to distribute, laying up in store for themselves a good foundation against the time to come that they may obtain eternal life.
O' Timothy save that which is given thee to keep, and avoid unghostly vanities of voices and oppositions of science falsely so called, which science while some professed, they have errored as concerning the faith. Grace be with thee. Amen
THE SECOND TO TIMOTHYE Chpt 2
Study to show thyself *laudable unto God a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, dividing the word of truth justly. Unghostly and vain voices pass over. For they shall increase unto greater ungodliness, and their words shall fret even as doth a *cancre: of whose number is Hymeneous and Philetos, which as concerning the truth have errored, saying that the resurrection is past already, and do destroy the faith of *diverse persons.
But the sure ground of God remaineth, and hath this seal: the Lord knoweth them that are his, and let every man that calleth on the name of Christ, depart from iniquity. Not withstanding in a great house are not only vessels of gold and of silver: but also of wood and of earth, some for honour, and some unto dishonour. But if a man purge him self from such fellows, he shall be a vessel sanctified unto honour, *meet for the Lord, and prepared unto all good works.
Lusts of youth avoid, and follow righteousness, faith, love and peace, with them that call on the Lord with pure heart. Foolish and unlearned questions put from thee, remembering that they do but gender strife. But the servant of the Lord must not strive: but must be peaceable unto all men, and apt to teach, and one that can suffer the evil in meekness, and can inform them that resist, if that God at any time will give them repentance for to know the truth: that they may come to them selves again out of the snare of the devil, which are now taken of him at his will
*other (others). *laudable (honorable, praised) *cancre (canker, cancer? )
*diverse (different, contradictory) *meet (worthy
TO TITUS Chpt 3
Warn them that they submit themselves to rule and power, to obey the officers, that they be ready unto all good works, that they speak evil of no man, that they be no fighters, but soft, showing all meekness unto all men. For we ourselves also were in times past, unwise: disobedient, deceived, in danger to lusts, and to diverse manners of *voluptuousness, living in maliciousness and envy, full of hate, hating one another.
But after that the kindness and love of our saviour God to man ward appeared, not of the deeds of righteousness which we wrought but of his mercy he saved us, by the fountain of the new birth, and with the renewing of the holy ghost, which he shed on us abundantly, through Jesus Christ our saviour, that we once justified by his grace, should be heirs of eternal life, through hope.
This is a true saying.
Of these things I would thou shouldest certify, that they which believe God, might be diligent to go forward in good works. These things are good and profitable unto men. Foolish questions, and *genealogies and brawlings and strife about the law, avoid, for they are unprofitable and *superfluous. A man that is given to heresy, after the first and the second *admonition, avoid: remembering, that he that is such, is perverted and sinneth, even damned by his own judgement.
When I shall send Artemas unto thee, or Tychicus, be diligent to come to me unto Nicopolis. For I have determined there to winter. Bring Zenas the lawyer and Apollos on their journey diligently, that nothing be lacking unto them. And let ours also learn to excel in good works, as far forth as need requireth, that they be not unfruitful. All that are with me, salute thee. Greet them that love us in the faith. Grace be with you all: Amen
*voluptuousness: indecent pride,lust of eye, lust of flesh and pride of goods.
*genealogies (family trees, ancestry) *superfluous (vain ganglings ) *admonition (mild rebuke)
THE PROVERBS Chpt 8
I wisdom have my dwelling with knowledge, and prudent counsel is my own. With me is the fear of the Lord, and the eschewing of evil. As for pride, disdain, and evil way, and a mouth that speaketh wicked things, I utterly abhor them. I can give counsel, and be a guide: I have understanding, I have strength. Through me, Kings reign: through me, princes make just laws. Through me, Lords bear rule, and all judges of the earth execute judgement. I am loving unto those that love me, and they that seek me early, shall find me. Riches and honor are with me, yee excellent goods and righteousness. My fruit is better than gold, and precious stone, and mine increase more worth than silver. I walk in the way of righteousness, and in the street of judgment.
That I may send prosperity to those that love me, and to increase their treasure. The Lord himself had me in possession in the beginning of his ways, or ever he began his works afore time. I have been ordained from everlasting, and from the beginning, or ever the earth was made. When I was born, there were neither depths nor springs of water. Before the foundations of the mountains were layed, yee before all hills was I born. The earth and all that is upon the earth was not yet made, no not the ground itself. For when he made the heavens, I was present: when he set up the depths in order: when he hanged the clouds above: when he fastened the springs of the deep: When he shut the sea within certain bounds, that the waters should not go over their marks. When he layed the foundations of the earth I was with him, ordering all things, delighting daily, and rejoicing all the way before him.
As for the round compass of his world, I make it joyful: for my delight is to be among the children of men. Therefore harken unto me, O' ye children, for blessed are they that keep my ways. O' give ear unto nurture, be wise, and refuse it not. Blessed is the man that heareth me, watching daily at my gates, and giving attendance at the posts of my doors. For whoso findeth me, findeth life, and shall obtain favor of the Lord. But whoso offendeth against me, hurteth his own soul. All they that hate me, are lovers of death
THE SECOND TO THE CORINTHIANS Chpt 8
It is not my mind that others be set at ease, and ye brought into cumbrance: but that there be *egalness now at this time, that your abundance succour their lack: that their abundance may supply your lack: that there may be equality, agreeing to that which is written: He that gathered much had never the more abundance, and he that gathered little had never the less. Thanks be unto God, which put in the heart of Titus the same good mind toward you. For he accepted the request yee rather he was so well willing that of his own accord came unto you.
We have sent with him that brother, whose laud is in the gospel throughout all the congregations: and not so only, but is also chosen of the congregations to be a fellow with us in our journey concerning this benevolence that is ministered by us unto the praise of the Lord and to stir up your prompt mind.
For this we *eschew, that any man should rebuke us in this plenteous distribution that is ministered by us, and therefore make provision for honest things, not in the sight of God only, but also in the sight of men.
We have sent with them a brother of ours whom we have often times proved diligent in many things, but now much more diligent. The great confidence which I have in you, hath caused me this to do: partly for Titus sake which is my fellow and helper as concerning you, partly because of others which are our brethren, and the messengers of the congregations, and the glory of Christ. Wherefore show unto them the proof of your love, and of the rejoicing that we have of you, that the congregations may see it
*wit (know) *egalness (eagleness, agileness: meaning to quicken, to have lightness ...no burden ?) *eschew (avoid)
THE FIRST EPISTLE OF ST. PETER Chpt 3
Likewise let the wives be in subjection to their husbands that even they which believe not the word, may without the word be won by the conversation of the wives: while they behold your pure conversation coupled with fear. Whose apparel shall not be outward with broided hair, and hanging on of gold, or in putting on of gorgeous apparel: but let the hid man of the heart be uncorrupt, with a meek and a quiet spirit, which spirit is before God a thing much set by. For after this manner in the old time did the holy women which trusted in God, attire themselves, and were obedient to their husbands, even as Sara obeyed Abraham, and called him Lord: whose daughters ye are as long as ye do well, not being afraid of every shadow.
Likewise ye men dwell with them according to knowledge: giving honour unto the wife, as unto the weaker vessel, and as unto them that are heirs also of the grace of life, that your prayers be not let.
In conclusion, be ye all of one mind, one suffer with another, love as brethren, be pitiful, be courteous, not rendering evil for evil, neither rebuke for rebuke: but contrariwise, bless, remembering that ye are thereunto called, even that ye should be heirs of blessing. If any man long after life, and loveth to see good days, let him refrain his tongue from evil, and his lips that they speak not guile. Let him *eschew evil and do good: let him seek peace, and ensue it. For the eyes of the Lord are over the righteous, and his ears are open unto their prayers. But the face of the Lord beholdeth them that do evil.
Moreover who is it that will harm you, if ye follow that which is good? Notwithstanding happy are ye if ye suffer for righteousness sake. Ye and fear not though they seem terrible to you, neither be troubled: but sanctify the Lord God in your hearts. Be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you, and that with meekness and fear: having a good conscience, that when they backbite you as evildoers, they may be ashamed, for as much as they have falsely accused your good conversation in Christ.
It is better (if the will of God be so) that ye suffer for well doing, than for evil doing. For as much as Christ hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, for to bring us to God, and was killed, as pertaining to the flesh: but was quickened in the spirit.
In which spirit he also went and preached unto the spirits that were in prison, which were in time past disobedient, when the long suffering of God abode exceeding patiently in the days of Noah, while the ark was a preparing wherein few (that is to say, eight souls) were saved by water, which signifieth baptism that now saveth us, not the putting away of the filth of the flesh, but in that a good conscience consenteth to God, by the resurrection of Jesus Christ, which is our right hand of God: and is gone into heaven, angels, power and might subdued unto him
THE GOSPELL OF ST. LUKE Chpt 12
I say unto you: Whosoever confesseth me before men, even him shall the son of man confess also before the angels of God. And he that denieth me before men: shall be denied before the angels of God. And whosoever speaketh a word against the son of man it shall be forgiven him. But unto him that blasphemeth the holy ghost, it shall not be forgiven.
When they bring you unto the synagogues, and unto the rulers, and officers, take no thought how or what thing ye shall answer or what ye shall speak. For the holy ghost shall teach you in the same hour, what ye ought to say.
JEREMIE or JEREMIAH Chpt 7
These are the words that God spake unto Jeremie: Stand under the gates of the Lords house, and cry out these words there, with a loud voice, and say: Hear the word of the Lord all ye of Judah, that go in this door, to honor the Lord. Thus saith the Lord of Hosts the God of Israel. Amend your ways and your counsels, and I will let you dwell in this place. Trust not in the false lying words, saying: here is the temple of the Lord, here is the temple of the Lord, here is the temple of the Lord.
THE GOSPELL OF ST. MATTHEW Chpt 24
Then if any man shall say unto you: lo, here is Christ, or there is Christ: believe it not. For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall do great miracles and wonders. In so much that if it were possible, the very elect should be deceived. Take heed, I have told you before. Wherefore if they shall say unto you: behold he is in the desert, go not forth: behold he is in the secret places, believe not. For as the lightning cometh out of the East and shineth unto the west: so shall the coming of the son of man be. For wheresoever a dead carcass is, even thither will the eagles resort. Immediately after the tribulations of those days, shall the sun be darkened: and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of heaven shall move. And then shall appear the sign of the son of man in heaven. And then shall all the kindreds of the earth mourn, and they shall see the son of man come in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. And he shall send his Angels with the great voice of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his chosen, from the four winds, and from the one end of the world to the other.
THE GOSPELL OF ST. MARK Chpt 13
And then, if any man say to you: lo, here is Christ: lo, he is there, believe not. For false Christs shall arise, and false prophets, and shall show miracles and wonders, to deceive if it were possible, even the elect. But take ye heed: behold I have showed you all things before.
THE SECOND TO THE CORINTHIANS Chpt 11
If the truth of Christ be in me, this rejoicing shall not be taken from me in the regions of Achaia. Wherefore? Because I love you not? God knoweth. Nevertheless what I do, that will I do, to cut away occasion from them which desire occasion, that they might be found like unto us in that wherein they rejoice. For these false apostles are deceitful workers, and fashion them selves like unto the Apostles of Christ. And no marvel, for Satan himself is changed into the fashion of an angel of light. Therefore it is no great thing, though his ministers fashion them selves as though they were the ministers of righteousness: whose end shall be according to their deeds.
THE GOSPELL OF ST. MATTHEW Chpt 23
Woe be unto you Scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites, which compass sea and land, to bring one in to your belief: and when he is brought, ye make him two fold more the child of hell, than ye yourselves are.

How be it he that is highest of all, dwelleth not in temples made with hands, as saith the Prophet: Heaven is my seat, and earth is my footstool, what house will ye build for me saith the Lord? or what place is it that I should rest in hath not my hand made all these things?
Ye stiffnecked and of uncircumcised hearts and ears: ye have all ways resisted the holy ghost: as your fathers did, so do ye. Which of the Prophets have not your fathers persecuted? And they have slain them, which showed before of the coming of that *Just, whom ye have now betrayed and murdered. And ye also have received a law by the ordinance of Angels, and have not kept it.
When they heard these things, their hearts clave asunder, and they gnashed on him with their teeth. But he being full of the holy ghost, looked up steadfastly with his eyes into heaven, and saw the glory of God, and Jesus standing on the right hand of God, and said: behold, I see the heavens open, and the son of man standing on the right hand of God. Then they gave a shout with a loud voice, and stopped their ears and ran upon him all at once, and cast him out of the city, and stoned him. And the witnesses laid down their clothes at a young mans feet named Saul. And they stoned Stephen calling on and saying: Lord Jesus receive my spirit. And he kneeled down and cried with a loud voice: Lord lay not this sin to their charge. And when he had thus spoken, he fell asleep
THE ACTS OF THE APOSTLES Chpt 17
Paul stood in the midst of Marce street and said: ye men of Athens, I perceive that in all things ye are too superstitious. For as I passed by and beheld the manner how ye worship your gods, I found an altar wherein was written: unto the unknown God. Whom ye then ignorantly worship him show I unto you: God that made the world and all that are in it, seeing that he is Lord of heaven and earth, he dwelleth not in temples made with hands, neither is worshipped with mens hands, as though he needed of any thing, seeing he himself giveth life and breath to all men everywhere, and hath made of one blood all nations of men, for to dwell on all the face of the earth, and hath assigned before, how long time, and also the ends of their inhabitation, that they should seek God, if they might feel and find him, though he be not far from every one of us. For in him we live, move and have your being, as certain of your own Poets said. For we are also his generation. For as much then as we are the generation of God, we ought not to think that the Godhead is like unto gold, silver or stone, graven by craft and imagination of man.
And the time of this ignorance God regarded not. but now he biddeth all men everywhere repent, because he hath appointed a day, in the which he will judge the world according to righteousness, by that man whom he hath appointed, and hath offered faith to all men, after that he had raised him from death.
When they heard of the resurrection from death, some mocked, and other said: we will hear thee again of this matter. So Paul departed from among them. How be it certain men clave unto Paul and believed, among the which was Dionysius a senator, and a woman named Damaris, and other with them
THE GOSPELL OF ST. JOHN Chpt 6
Then said they unto him: what shall we do that we might work the works of God? Jesus answered and said unto them. This is the work of God, that ye believe on him, whom he hath sent. They said unto him: what sign showest thou then, that we may see and believe thee? What dost thou work? Our fathers did eat Mannain in the desert, as it is written: He gave them bread from heaven to eat. Jesus said unto them: verily, verily I say unto you: Moses gave you not bread from heaven: but my father giveth you the true bread from heaven. For the bread of God is he which cometh down from heaven and giveth life unto the world.
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.
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.

Then Jupiters priest, which dwelt before their city, brought oxen and garlands unto the church porch, and would have done sacrifice with the people....

TRUE WORD...Oseas (thats Hosea chp 8 :14 for you kjv folks)
The Lord will have no pleasure therin: 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.
TRUE WORD...the Prophet Amos... Then said the Lord: behold, I will lay the trowel among my people of Israel, and will nomore oversee them: but the high hill chapels of Isaac must be laid waste and
the churches of Israel made desolate:
