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.

and i was taken and shown a fat dog ...
and the fat dog was like that ...of the many peoples ...
and there was hung ...hung on the fat dog ...many diverse collars ...
and the fat dog loved the attention ...
and the many collars ...
and the more collars the fat dog had the more excited it became ...
and the fat dog began to show his collars off ...by running all roundabout...
and one last collar was hung on the fat dogs neck ...
and the fat dog became so proud ...it ran as fast as it could ...
and the fat dog ran swiftly and straight ...
even as if to escape the yard ...of his house ...
and to go out into the world ...to show all his collars ...
evenso one of the golden collars ...caught on a snag sticking out of the earth ...
and of the swiftness and the weight of the fat dog ...the fat dogs neck was snapped ...
and the fat dog layed as dead upon the lawn of the house he belonged to ...
and scripture came back to remembrance ...
SECOND BOOK OF MOSES Chpt 11
And Moses said: thus saith the Lord. About midnight will I go out among the Egyptians, and all the firstborn in the land of Egypt shall die: even from the firstborn of Pharao that sitteth on his seat, unto the firstborn of the maidservant that is in the mill, and all the firstborn of the cattle. And there shall be a great cry throughout all the land of Egypt: so that there was never none like nor shall be. And among all the children of Israel shall not a dog move his tongue, nor yet man or beast: that ye may know, how the Lord putteth a difference between the Egyptians and Israel. And all these thy servants shall come down unto me, and fall before me and say: get thee out and all the people that are under thee, and then will I depart. And he went out from Pharao in a great anger.
And the Lord said unto Moses: Pharao shall not regard you, that many wonders may be wrought in the land of Egypt. And Moses and Aaron did all these wonders before Pharao. But the Lord hardened Pharaos heart, so that he would not let the children of Israel go out of his land
SECOND BOOK OF MOSES Chpt 22
Ye shall be holy people unto me, and therefore shall ye eat no flesh that is torn of beasts in the field. But shall cast it to dogs
FIFTH BOOK OF MOSES Chpt 23
Thou shalt neither bring the hire of an whore nor the price of a dog into the house of the Lord thy God, in no manner of vow: for even both of them are abomination unto the Lord thy God.
JUDGES Chpt 7
And the Lord said unto Gedeon: the people are yet too many, bring them down unto the water, and I will try them unto thee there. And of whom I say unto thee, this shall go with thee, the same shall go with thee. And whosoever I say unto thee, this shall not go with thee, the same shall not go. And when he had brought down the people unto the water, the Lord said unto Gedeon: As many as lap the water with their tongues, as dogs do, them put by themselves, and so do them that kneel down upon their knees to drink. And the number of them that put their hands to their mouths and lapped, were three hundred men. And all the remnant of the people knelt down upon their knees to drink water. And the Lord said unto Gedeon, with the three hundred men that lapped will I save you, and deliver the Madianites into thine hand. And all the other people shall go every man unto his own home
FIRST BOOK OF SAMUEL Chpt 17
And the Philistine came and drew near to David, with the man that bare a shield before him. And when the Philistine looked and saw David: he disdained him, for he was but a lad, ruddy and goodly to look upon. And the Philistine said unto David: am I a dog, that thou comest to me with a staff? and he cursed David in the name of his Gods. And he said to David: come to me and I will give thy flesh unto the fowls of the air, and to the beasts of the field. Then said David to the Philistine thou comest to me with a sword a spear and a shield: But I come to thee in the name of the Lord of hosts, the God of the host of Israel whom thou hast railed upon. This day shall the Lord deliver thee into my hand, and I shall smite thee and take thine head from thee, and will give the carcasses of the host of the Philistines this day unto the fowls of the air and to the beasts of the earth, and all the world shall know, that there is a God in Israel. And all this congregation shall know, that the Lord saveth not with the sword and spear. For the battle is the Lords, and he shall give you into our hands.
FIRST BOOK OF SAMUEL Chpt 24
And when Saul was up out of the cave and gone away, David arose and went out of the cave and cried after Saul saying: My lord king. And Saul looked behind him. And David stooped to the earth and bowed himself, and said to Saul: wherefore giveth thou an ear to mens words, that say, David seeketh thee evil? Behold this day thine eyes have seen, how that the Lord had delivered thee this day, into mine hand in the cave. When they bade kill thee, mine eye had compassion on thee: and I said: I will not lay my hands on my master, for he is the Lords anointed. And moreover my father, see yet the lap of thy coat in my hand. And in as much as I killed thee not too, when I cut off the lap of thy coat, understand and see, that there is neither evil nor rebelliousness in me, and that I have not sinned against thee. And yet thou huntest after my soul to take it. The Lord be judge between thee and me, and the Lord avenge me of thee. But mine hand be not upon thee. According to the old proverb, wickedness shall proceed out of the wicked: But mine hand be not upon thee. After whom art thou come out, thou king of Israel? After whom chasest thou, even after a dead dog, and after a flea. The Lord be judge and judge between thee and me, and see and *pleate my cause, and judge me free out of thine hand. When David had made an end of speaking all these words to Saul, Saul said: is this thy voice my son David? and he lifted up his voice and wept, and said to David: thou art righteouser than I, for thou hast rewarded me with good, and I have rewarded thee with evil. And thou hast showed this day how that thou hast dealt lovingly with me, for as much as when the Lord had locked me in thine hands, thou slewest me not. For who shall find his enemy, and let him depart a good way. Wherefore the Lord reward thee with good, for that thou hast done unto me this day. And now I know well that thou shalt be King, and that the kingdom of Israel shall be stablished in thine hand. Swear therefore unto me by the Lord, that thou shalt not destroy my seed after me, and that thou shalt not destroy my name out of my fathers house. And David sware unto Saul, and Saul went home. But David and his men gat up unto an hold
THE FIRST BOOK OF KINGS Chpt 21
And the word of the Lord came unto Eliah the Thesbite saying: up and go down to meet Ahab king of Israel, which is in Samaria. Behold, he is in the vineyard of Naboth: for he is gone down thither, to take possession of it. And say unto him: thus saith the Lord, thou hast killed and thereto gotten possession. And say moreover unto him, thus saith the Lord: in the place where dogs lapped the blood of Naboth, shall dogs lap even thy blood also. And Ahab said to Eliah: hast thou found me thine enemy at any time? And he said yea, because thou art utterly given to work wickedness in the sight of the Lord. Behold, I will bring evil upon thee, and will make clean riddance of thee, and will destroy unto Ahab all that pisseth against the wall, and if ought be prisoned or forsaken in Israel: and will make thine house, like the house of Jeroboam the son of Nabat, and like the house of Baasa the son of Ahiah, for the angering wherewith thou hast angered and made Israel sin.
And thereto against Jezabel came the word of the Lord saying: dogs shall eat Jezabel, under the walls of Jezrahel. And he that dieth of Ahab in the town, him shall dogs eat: and he that dieth in the fields, him shall the fowls of the air eat. For there was none at all like Ahab, that was so utterly given to work wickedness in the sight of the Lord, and that because Jezabel his wife pricked him forward. And therefore he did exceeding abominably, in following Idols, in all things like as did the Amorites which the Lord cast out before the children of Israel.
When Ahab heard those words, he rent his clothes and put sack cloth about his flesh and fasted, and lay in sack and went comfortless. And the word of the Lord came to Eliah the Thesbite saying: seest thou how Ahab humbleth himself before me? because he so submitteth himself before me, I will not bring that evil in his days: but in his sons days, I will bring evil upon his house
THE FIRST BOOK OF KINGS Chpt 22
And when the king of Israel was dead, they came to Samaria and buried him there. And while they washed the chariot in the pool of Samaria, the dogs licked up his blood, and harlots washed him according to the word of the Lord which he spake.
The rest of the deeds of Ahab, and all that he did, and the ivory house which he made, and the cities that he built, are written in the book of the chronicles of the kings of Israel. And when Ahab was laid to rest with his fathers, Ohoziah his son reigned in his stead.
THE SECOND BOOK OF KINGS Chpt 8
And Eliseus said to him: go and say to him, thou shalt recover, how be it the Lord hath showed me that he shall surely die. And the man of God began to look earnestly, in somuch that he was ashamed: and the man of God wept. And Hazael said: why weepeth my Lord: And he answered: for I know that thou shalt do evil unto the children of Israel: their strong cities thou shalt set on fire, and their young men thou shalt slay with the sword, and shalt dash out the brains of their sucking children: and all to tear their women with child.
And Hazael said: what is thy servant which am but a dog, that I should do this great thing? And Eliseus said: for the Lord hath showed me, that thou shalt be king of Siria. And so he departed from Eliseus and came to his master, which said to him. What said Eliseus to thee? And he said: he told me that thou shouldest recover. And on the morrow he took a rough cloth and dipped it in the water and spread it on his face, and he died, and Hazael reigned in his stead.
THE SECOND BOOK OF KINGS Chpt 9
And the other poured the oil on his head and said to him, thus saith the Lord God of Israel: I have anointed thee to be king over Israel the people of the Lord, that thou slay the household of Ahab thy master. For I (saith the Lord) will avenge the blood of my servants the prophets, and the blood of all the servants of the Lord, of the hand of Jezabel (for the whole house of Ahab shall be destroyed) and I will destroy unto Ahab what pisseth against the wall, and so much as the prisoned or that is forsaken in Israel, and will make the house of Ahab like the house of Jeroboam son of Nabat, and like the house of Baasa the son of Ahiah. And as for Jezabel the dogs shall eat her in the field of Jezrahel, and none shall bury her. And he opened the door and fled.
JOB Chpt 30
But now they that are mine inferiors and younger then I , have me in derision: yee even they, whose fathers I would have thought scorn to have set with the dogs of my cattle. The power and strength of their hands might do me no good, and as for their age, it is spent and past away without any profit. For very misery and hunger, they went about in the wilderness like wretches and beggars, plucking up herbs from among the bushes, and the Junipers root was their meat. And when they were driven forth, men cried after them, as it had been after a thief. Their dwelling was beside foul brooks, yee even in the caves and dens of the earth. Upon the dry *heath went they about crying, and in the broom hills they gathered them together. They were children of fools and villains, which are dead away from the world. Now am I their song, and am become their jesting stock: they abhor me, they flee far from me, and stain my face with spit, for the lord has opened his quiver, he hath hit me and put a bridle in my mouth. Upon my right hand they rose together against me, they have hurt my feet, made a way to destroy me, and my path have they clean marred. It was so easy for them to do me harm, that they needed no man to help them. They fell upon me, as it had been the breaking in of waters, and came in by heaps to destroy me. Fearfulness has turned against me.
THE PSALMS Chpt 22
For dogs are come about me, the counsel of the wicked hath layed siege against me. They pierced my hands and my feet, I might have told all my bones: as for them, they stood staring and looking upon me. They have parted my garments among them, and cast lots upon my vesture.
But be not thou far from me, O' Lord: thou art my succor, haste thee to help me. Deliver my soul from the sword, my dearling from the power of the dog. Save me from the lions mouth, and hear me from among the horns of the unicorns.
I will declare thy name unto my brethren, in the midst of the congregation will I praise thee. O' praise the Lord ye that fear him: Magnify him all ye seed of Jacob, and let all the seed of Israel fear him.
THE PSALMS Chpt 59
Let them go to and fro, and run about the city, howling like dogs. Behold, they speak ( against me ) with their mouth, swords are under their lips, for who reproveth them?
But thou ( O' Lord ) shalt have them in *derision, thou shalt laugh the Heathen to scorn.
My strength do I ascribe unto thee, for thou ( O' God ) art my defender.
God showeth me his goodness plentiously, God letteth me see my desire upon mine enemies. Slay them not, lest my people forget it: but scatter them abroad by thy power, and put them down, O' Lord my defense. For the sin of their mouth, for the words of their lips, and because of their pride, let them be taken: and why? their preaching is of cursing and lies. Consume them in thy wrath, consume them that they may perish, and know that it is God, which ruleth in Jacob and in all the world. Selah.
And at evening let them return; and let them make a noise like a dog, and go round about the city.
Let them go to and fro, and run about the city, howling like dogs. Let them run here and there for meat, and grudge when they have not enough.
As for me, I will sing of thy power, and praise thy mercy by times in the morning: for thou art my defense and refuge in the time of my trouble. Unto thee ( O' my strength ) will I sing, for thou ( O' God ) art my defense, and my merciful God
THE PSALMS Chpt 68
That thy foot may be dipped in the blood of thine enemies, and that thy dogs may lick it up.
It is well seen, O' God, how thou goest, how thou my God and my King goest in the *Sanctuary.
MN *pales = pots ,vessels. *Sanctuary:This is to say; it is well known how God works, even in the hearts of men.
THE PROVERBS Chpt 26
A man of experience discerneth all things well, but who so hireth a fool, hireth such one as will take no heed.
Like as a the dog turneth again to his vomit, even so a fool beginneth his foolishness again a fresh.
If thou seest a man that is wise in his own conceit, there is more hope in a fool than in him.
The slothful sayeth: There is a leopard in the way, and a lion in the midest of the streets.
Like as the door turneth about upon the threshold, even so doth the slothful *welter himself upon his bed.
The slothful body thrusteth his hand into his bosom, and it grieveth him to put it again to his mouth.
The sluggard thinketh himself wiser, then seven men that sit and teach.
Who so goeth by and meddleth with other mens strife, he is like one that taketh a dog by the ears.
THE BOOK OF THE PREACHER Chpt 9
And why? As long as a man liveth, he is careless: for a quick dog (they say) is better than a dead lion: for they that be living, know that they shall die: but they that be dead, know nothing, neither deserve they anymore. For their memorial is forgotten, so they that be neither loved, hated ner envied: neither have they anymore part in the world, in all that is done under the Son. Go thy way then, eat thy bread with joy, and drink thy wine with gladness, for thy works please God. Let thy garments be always white, and let thy head *want none ointment. Use thy self to live joyfully with thy wife whom thou lovest, all the days of the life, which is but vanity, that God hath given thee under the *Son, all the days of thy vanity: for that is thy portion in this life, of all thy labor and travail that thou takest under the *Son. Whatsoever thou takest in thy hand to do, do that with all thy power: for among the dead, where thou goest unto, there is neither work, counsel, knowledge ner wisdom.
ESAI or ISAIAH Chpt 56
Thus saith the Lord God which gathered together the scattered of Israel: I will bring yet another congregation to him. All the beasts of the field, and all the beasts of the wood, shall come to devour him. For his watchmen are all blind, they have altogether no understanding, they are all dumb dogs, not being able to bark, they are sleepy: sluggish are they, and lie snoring: they are shameless dogs, that never be satisfied. The shepherds also in like manner have no understanding, but every man turneth his own way, everyone after his own covetousness with all his power. Come ( say they ) I will fetch wine, so shall we fill ourselves, that we may be drunken. And do tomorrow, like as today, yee and much more
ESAI or ISAIAH Chpt 66
Thus saith the Lord: Heaven is my feet, and the earth is my footstool. Where shall now that house stand that ye build unto me? And where shall be the place, that I will dwell in ? As for these things, my hand hath made them all, and they are all created, saith the Lord. Which of them shall I then regard? Even him that is of a lowly troubled spirit, and standeth in awe of my works. For who so slayeth an ox for me, doeth me so great dishonor, as he that killeth a man. He that killeth a sheep for me, choketh a dog. He that bringeth me meat offerings, offereth swines blood: Who so maketh me a memorial of incense, praiseth the thing that is unright. Yet take they such ways in hand, and their soul delighteth in these abominations.
Therefore will I also have pleasure in laughing them to scorn, and the thing that they fear, will I bring upon them. For when I called no man gave answer: when I spake, they would not hear: But did wickedness before mine eyes, and chose the things that displeaseth me. Hear the word of God all ye, that fear the thing which he speaketh. Your brethren that hate you, and cast you out for my names sake, say: Let the Lord magnify himself, that we may see your gladness: and yet they shall be confounded
JEREMIE or JEREMIAH Chpt 15
Then spake the Lord unto me, and said: Though Moses and Samuel stood before me, yet have I no heart to this people. Drive them away, that they may go out of my sight. And if they say unto thee: Whither shall we go? Then tell them: The Lord giveth you this answer: Some unto death, some to the sword, some to hunger, some into captivity. For I will bring four plagues upon them saith the Lord. The sword shall strangle them, the dogs shall devour them, the fowls of the air, and the beasts of the earth shall eat them up, and destroy them. I will scatter them about also, in all kingdoms and lands to be plagued, because of Manasseh the son of Hezekiah king of Juda, for the things that he did in Jerusalem.
THE GOSPELL OF ST. MATTHEW Chpt 7
Give not that which is holy, to dogs, neither cast ye your pearls before swine, lest they tread them under their feet, and the other turn again and all to rent you.
THE GOSPELL OF ST. MATTHEW Chpt 15
And Jesus went thence, and departed into the coasts of Tyre and Sidon. And behold a woman which was a Canaanite came out of the same coasts, and cried unto him, saying: have mercy on me Lord thou son of David, my daughter is piteously vexed with a devil. And he gave her never a word to answer. Then came to him his disciples, and besought him saying: send her away, for she followeth us crying. He answered, and said: I am not sent, but unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel. Then she came and worshipped him, saying: master help me. He answered and said: it is not good, to take the childrens bread, and to cast it to dogs. She answered and said: truth Lord, nevertheless the dogs eat of the crumbs, which fall from their masters table. Then Jesus answered and said unto her. O woman great is thy faith, be it to thee, even as thou desirest. And her daughter was made whole even at that same hour.
THE GOSPELL OF ST. LUKE Chpt 16
There was a certain rich man, which was clothed in purple and fine byss, and fared deliciously every day. And there was a certain beggar named Lazarus, which lay at his gate full of sores desiring to be refreshed with the crumbs which fell from the rich mans board. Nevertheless, the dogs came and licked his sores. And it fortuned that the beggar died, and was carried by the angels into Abrahams bosom. The rich man also died, and was buried.
And being in hell in torments, he lift up his eyes and saw Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom, and he cried and said: father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus that he may dip the tip of his finger in water, and cool my tongue: for I am tormented in this flame. But Abraham said unto him: Son, remember that thou in thy lifetime, receivedst thy pleasure, and contrary wise Lazarus pain. Now therefore is he comforted, and thou art punished. Beyond all this, between you and us there is a great space set, so that they which would go from hence to you cannot: neither may come from thence to us.
Then he said I pray thee therefore father, send him to my fathers house. For I have five brethren: for to warn them lest they also come into this place of torment. Abraham said unto him: they have Moses and the Prophets, let them hear them. And he said: nay father Abraham, but if one came unto them from the dead, they would repent. He said unto him: If they hear not Moses and the Prophets, neither will they believe, though one rose from death again
TO THE PHILIPPIANS Chpt 3
Moreover, my brethren rejoice in the Lord. It grieveth me not to write one thing often to you. For to you it is a sure thing. Beware of dogs, beware of evil workers. Beware of dissension. For we are circumcision which worship God in the spirit, and rejoice in Christ *Jesu, and have no confidence in the flesh: though I have whereof I might rejoice in the flesh. If any other man thinketh that he hath whereof he might trust in the flesh: much more I: circumcised the eighth day, of the kindred of Israel, of the tribe of Benjamin, an Hebrew born of the Hebrews: as concerning the law, a Pharisee, and as concerning ferventness, I persecuted the congregation, and as touching the righteousness which is in the law I was unrebukable.
THE SECOND EPISTLE OF ST. PETER Chpt 2
There were false Prophets among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you: which privily shall bring in damnable sects, even denying the Lord that hath bought them, and bring upon themselves swift damnation, and many shall follow their damnable ways, by which the way of truth shall be evil spoken of, and through covetousness shall they with *feigned words make merchandise of you, whose judgment is not far off, and their damnation sleepeth not.
For if God spared not the angels that sinned, but cast them down into hell, and delivered them in chains of darkness, to be kept unto judgement: Neither spared the old world, but saved Noah the eight preacher of righteousness, and brought in the flood upon the world of the ungodly, and turned the cities of Zodom and Gomor into ashes: overthrew them, damned them, and made of them an example unto all that after should live ungodly. And just Lot vexed with the uncleanly conversation of the wicked, delivered he. For he being righteous and dwelling among them in seeing and hearing, vexed his righteous soul from day to day with their unlawful deeds. The Lord knoweth how to deliver the godly out of temptation, and how to reserve the unjust unto the day of judgment for to be punished: namely them that walk after the flesh in the lust of uncleanness, and despise the rulers. Presumptuous are they, and stubborn and fear not to speak evil of them that are in authority. When the angels which are greater both in power and might, receive not of the Lord railing judgement against them. But these as brute beasts, naturally made to be taken and destroyed, speak evil of that they know not, and shall perish through their own destruction, and receive the reward of unrighteousness.
They count it pleasure to live deliciously for a season. Spots they are and filthiness, living at pleasure, and in deceivable ways, feasting with you: having eyes full of *advoutry and that cannot cease to sin, beguiling unstable souls. Hearts they have exercised with covetousness. They are cursed children, and have forsaken the right way, and are gone astray following the way of Balaam the son of Bosor, which loved the reward of unrighteousness: but was rebuked of his iniquity. The tame and dumb beast, speaking with mans voice, forbade the foolishness of the Prophet.
These are wells without water and clouds carried about of a tempest, to whom the mist of darkness is reserved for ever. For when they have spoken the swelling words of vanity, they beguile with wantonness through the lusts of the flesh, them that were clean escaped: but now are wrapped in errors. They promise them liberty, and are themselves the bond servants of corruption. For of whom soever a man is overcome, unto the same is he in bondage. For if they, after they have escaped from the filthiness of the world through the knowledge of the Lord and of the saviour Jesus Christ, they are yet tangled again therein and overcome: then is the latter end worse with them than the beginning. For it had been better for them, not to have known the way of righteousness than after they have known it, to turn from the holy commandment given unto them. It is happened unto them according to the true proverb: The dog is turned to his vomit again, and the sow that was washed, to her wallowing in the mire
*feigned (made up, beguiling) *advoutry: prefix "a" meaning not or without, devout: devotion; plain hearted to God, being devoted to something or some one else. see James 2 for adultery.
THE REVELATION OF ST JOHN Chpt 22
And he said unto me: seal not the sayings of the prophesy of this book. For the time is at hand. He that doth evil, let him do evil still: and he which is filthy, let him be filthy still: and he that is righteous, let him be more righteous: and he that is holy, let him be more holy. And behold I come shortly, and my reward with me, to give every man according as his deeds shall be. I am Alpha and Omega the beginning and the end: the first and the last. Blessed are they that do his commandments, that their power may be in the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city. For without shall be dogs and enchanters and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth or maketh leasings.
I Jesus sent mine angel, to testify unto you these things in the congregations. I am the root and the generation of David, and the bright morning star. And the spirit and the bride said come. And let him that heareth, say also, come. And let him that is a thirst, come. And let whosoever will, take of the water of life, free.
I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book: *If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book. And if any man shall minish of the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from those things which are written in this book. He which testifieth these things saith: be it, I come quickly, Amen.
Even so: come Lord Jesu.
The grace of our Lord Jesu Christ be with you all:
*If any man shall add unto these things...And if any man shall minish of the words ... discern for yourselves ...the 100's and 100's of dieverse "bibles of man"
