And measures and matters of The Truth of the "time" we are in ...how "man" ..."thought to change time and times ...
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.
Behold in a dread nightmare of the dark season ...of the times and time ..of the season of man ...see son of man ...
and i was taken and shown a father and a son and a woman...
and the woman was friendly to the son ...
and the son was friendly to the woman.
Yet the son would not take the woman to wife.
and the woman was friendly to the father.
and the father was friendly to the woman.
Now as the father rested did the woman come to his bed.
evenso the father would not take the woman to wife.
Yet comforted her and covered her.
and the father's wife appeared near the bed...
evenso the wife did not go into the bed.
Yet passed by...
and saw not the other woman who was covered in the bed.
and when the morning came the woman was uncovered.
and sent upon the way ...that she might find a worthy and willing husband.
and scripture came back to remembrance...
THE GOSPELL OF ST. JOHN Chpt 8
And Jesus went unto mount olivet, and early in the morning came again into the temple and all the people came unto him, and he sat down and taught them. And the Scribes and the Pharisees brought unto him a woman taken in *advoutry, and set her in the midst and said unto him: Master, this woman was taken in *advoutry, even as the deed was a doing. Moses in the law commanded us that such should be stoned. What sayest thou therefore? And this they said to tempt him: that they might have, whereof to accuse him. Jesus stooped down, and with his finger wrote on the ground. And while they continued asking him, he lifted himself up, and said unto them: let him that is among you without sin, cast the first stone at her. And again he stooped down and wrote on the ground. And as soon as they heard that, they went out one by one, the eldest first. And Jesus was left alone, and the woman standing in the midst.
When Jesus had lifted up himself again, and saw no man, but the woman, he said unto her: Woman where are those thine accusers? Hath no man condemned thee? She said: No man Lord. And Jesus said: Neither do I condemn thee.
Go, and sin no more.
*advoutry: prefix "a" meaning not or without, devout: devotion; plain hearted to God, being devoted to something or some one else .in this case devoted to the flesh. see James 2 for adultery.
THE EPISTLE OF ST. JAMES Chpt 2
Brethren have not the faith of our Lord Jesus Christ the Lord of glory in respect of persons. If there come into your company a man with a golden ring and in goodly apparel, and there come in also a poor man in vile raiment, and ye have a respect to him that weareth the gay clothing, and say unto him. Sit thou here in a good place: and say unto the poor, stand thou there or sit here under my footstool: are ye not partial in yourselves, and have judged after evil thoughts?
Hearken my dear beloved brethren. Hath not God chosen the poor of this world, which are rich in faith, and heirs of the kingdom which he promised to them that love him? But ye have despised the poor. Are not the rich they which oppress you, and they which draw you before judges? Do not they speak evil of that good name after which ye be named?
If ye fulfil the royal law according to the scripture which saith: Thou shalt love thine neighbour as thyself, ye do well. But if ye regard one person more than another, ye commit sin, and are rebuked of the law, as transgressors. Whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet fail in one point, he is guilty in all. For he that said. Thou shalt not commit **adultery, said also: thou shalt not kill. Though thou do none *adultery yet if thou kill, thou art a transgressor of the law. So speak ye, and so do, as they that shall be judged by the law of liberty. For there shall be judgement merciless to him that showeth no mercy, and mercy rejoiceth against judgement.
What availeth it my brethren, though a man say he hath faith, when he hath no deeds? Can faith save him? If a brother or a sister be naked or destitute of daily food, and one of you say unto them: Depart in peace, God send you warmness and food: not withstanding ye give them not those things which are needful to the body: what helpeth it them? Even so faith, if it have no deeds, is dead in itself.
Ye and a man might say: Thou hast faith, and I have deeds: Show me thy faith by thy deeds: and I will show thee my faith by my deeds. Believest thou that there is one God? Thou doest well. The devils also believe and tremble.
Wilt thou understand O thou vain man that faith without deeds is dead? Was not Abraham our father justified through works when he offered Isaac his son upon the altar? Thou seest how that faith wrought with his deeds, and through the deeds was the faith made perfect: and the scripture was fulfilled which saith: Abraham believed God, and it was reputed unto him for righteousness: and he was called the friend of God. Ye see then how that of deeds a man is justified, and not of faith only. Likewise also was not Raab the harlot justified through works, when she received the messengers, and sent them out another way? For as the body, without the spirit is dead, even so faith without deeds is dead

THE SECOND BOOK OF CHRONICLES Chpt 21
Jehosaphat laid him to rest with his fathers, and was buried with his fathers in the city of David and Jehoram his son reigned in his room: which Jehoram had other brethren, sons of Jehosaphat, Asariah, Jehiel, Zachariah, Asariah, Michael and Sephatia. All these were the sons of Jehosapaht king of Juda. And their father gave them many great gifts in silver, gold and other precious things with strong cities in Juda: but the kingdom he gave to Jehoram, because he was the eldest. And when Jehoram was up upon the kingdom of his father and settled, he slew all his other brethren with the sword, and diverse of the Lords of Israel thereto. Jehoram was thirty two years old when he began to reign, and he reigned eight years in Jerusalem. And he walked in the ways of the kings of Israel, like as did the house of Ahab (for a daughter of Ahab was his wife) and he wrought evil in the eyes of the Lord. How be it the Lord would not destroy the house of David, because of the covenant that he had made with David, as he promised to give a light to him and to his sons for ever.
In his days the Edomites departed from under the hand of Juda and made them a king. And Jehoram went forth with his lords and all his chariots with him and rose by night and laid on the Edomites. Which compassed him in and the captains of his chariots. And so Edom departed from under the hand of Juda unto this day. That same time also did lobnah depart from under his power, because he left the Lord God of his fathers. Moreover he made hillaltars in the mountains of Juda, and cause the inhabiters of Jerusalem to commit adultery, and he thrust Juda out of the way.
And there came a writing to him from Eliah the prophet of this tenor. Thus saith the Lord God of David thy father: because thou walkedst not in the ways of Jehosaphat thy father and in the ways of Asa king of Juda, but walkedst in the ways of Asa king of Israel and hast made Juda and the dwellers of Jerusalem go awhoring, like to the whoring of the house of Ahab, and hast thereto slain thy brethren that were thy fathers house, which were better than thou: Therefore behold the Lord will smite thee with a mighty plague in thy folk, in thy children, in thy wives and in thy goods. And thou shalt have much disease through infirmity in thy bowels, until thy bowels fall out by reason of thy sickness, day by day.
And the Lord stirred up against Jehoram the spirit of the Philistines and the Arabians that border on the black moors. Which came against Juda and all to tare the land, and carried away all the substance that was found in the kings house, and thereto his sons and his wives: so that there was never a son left him save Jehoahaz his youngest son. And after all that, the Lord smote him in his bowels with an incurable disease. And in process of time, even about the end of two years, his guts fell out by reason of his sickness: and so he died of evil diseases. But they made him no bonfire, like the bonfires of his fathers. When he began to reign, he was twenty seven years old, and reigned in Jerusalem eight years. And he walked not pleasantly and they buried him in the city of David: but not in the sepulcher of the kings
THE PROVERBS Chpt 30
*The prophecy of a true and faithful man, whom God hath helped, whom God had comforted and nourished.
For though I a least of all, and have no mans understanding ( for I never learned wisdom) yet have I understanding, and am well informed in Godly things. Who hath climbed up into heaven? Who hath come down from thence? Who hath holden the wind fast in his hands? Who hath comprehended the waters in a garment? Who hath set all the ends of the world? What is his name, or what is his sons name? Canest thou tell? All the words of God are pure and clean, for he is a shield unto them that put their trust in him. Put thou nothing unto his words, lest he reprove thee, and thou be found a liar.
Two things I require of thee, that thou will not deny me before I die. Remove from me vanity and lies: give me neither poverty nor riches, only grant me a necessary living. Lest I be so full, I deny thee, and say: What fellow is the Lord? And lest I being constrained through poverty, fall unto stealing, and foreswear the name of my God. Accuse not a servant unto his master, lest he speak evil of thee also, and thou be hurt. He that bringeth up an evil report upon the generation of his father and mother, is not worthy to be commended.
The generation that think themselves clean, shall not be cleansed from their filthiness. There are people that have a proud look, and cast up their eyelids. This peoples teeth are swords, and their chaft bones they consume and devour the simple of the earth, and the poor from among men.
This generation which is like an horseleach, hath two daughters: the one is called fetch hither, and the other bring hither.
There are three things that are never satisfied, and the fourth sayeth never hoo. The hell, a womans womb, and the earth hath never water enough. As for fire, it sayeth never, *hoo. Whoso laugheth his father to scorn, and setteth his mothers commandment to naught: the ravens pick out his eyes in the valley, and devoured be he of the young eagles.
There be three things too high for me, and as for the fourth, it passeth my knowledge. The way of an eagle in the air, the way of a serpent over a stone, the way of a ship in sea, and the way of a man with a young woman. Such is the way of an wife that breaketh wedlock, which wipeth her mouth like as when she hath eaten, and saith. As for me, I have done no harm. Through three things the earth is disquieted, and the fourth may it not bear: Through a servant that beareth rule, through a fool that hath great riches, through an idle housewife, and through an handmaiden that is heir to her mistress.
There be four things in the earth, the which are very little: but in wisdom they exceed the wise. The *Emmettes are but a weak people, yet gather they their meat in the harvest. The conies are but a feeble folk, yet make they their couches among the rocks. The grasshoppers have not a guide, yet go they forth together by heaps. The spider laboreth with her hands, and that in the Kings palace.
There be three things that go stiffly, but the going of the fourth is the godliest of all. A Lion which is King of beasts, and giveth place to no man: A cock ready to fight: A ram and a King that goeth forth with his people. If thou be so foolish to imagine thyself, or meddlest with any such thing, then lay thine hand upon thy mouth. Who so churneth milk, maketh butter: he that rubbeth his nose, maketh it bleed: and he that causeth wrath, bringeth forth strife

ESAI or ISAIAH Chpt 3
Every man can *eschue a person moved to anger, for what he doth wisely? Even so shall the Lord of Hosts take away from Jerusalem and from Juda, all possessions and power, all meat and drink, the captain and the soldier, the judge and the prophet, the wise and the aged man, the worshipful of fifty year old, and the honorable: the Senators, and the men of understanding: the masters of crafts and orators. And I shall give you children to be your princes,( sayeth the Lord ) and babes shall have the rule of you. One shall ever be doing violence and wrong to another. The boy will presume against the elder, and the vile person against the honorable. Ye when one shall take a friend of his own kindred by the bosom, and say: Thou hast clothing, thou shalt be our head, for thou mayest keep us from this fall and peril.
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.
*eschue (avoid, escape) *ribaudes ( extortioners :MN). *partlets = ruffled covering for the neck. *taches = buckles, clasps, fasteners. *son burning exactly as recorded
FIRST BOOK OF MOSES Chpt 39
Joseph was brought unto Egypt, and Putiphar a lord of Pharaos: and his chief marshal an Egyptian, bought him of the Ismaelites which brought him there. And the Lord was with Joseph, and he was a lucky fellow and continued in the house of his master the Egyptian. And his master saw that the Lord was with him, and that the Lord made all that he did prosper in his hand: Wherefore he found grace in his masters sight, and served him. And his master made him ruler of his house, and put all that he had in his hand. And as soon as he had made him ruler over his house and over all that he had, the Lord blessed this Egyptians house for Josephs sake, and the blessing of the Lord was upon all that he had: both in the house and also in the fields. And therefore he left all that he had in Josephs hand, and looked upon nothing that was with him, save only on the bread which he ate. And Joseph was a goodly person and well favored. And it fortuned after this, that his masters wife cast her eyes upon Joseph and said: come lie with me. But he denied and said to her: Behold, my master knows not what he hath in the house with me, but hath committed all that he hath to my hand. He himself is not greater in the house than I, and hath kept nothing from me, but only thee because thou art his wife. How then can I do this great wickedness, for to sin against God? And after this manner spake she to Joseph day by day: but he hearkened not unto her, to sleep near her or to be in her company.
And it fortuned about the same season, that Joseph entered into the house, to do his business: and there was none of the household by, in the house. And she caught him by the garment saying: come sleep with me. And he left his garment in her hand and fled and got him out. When she saw that he had left his garment in her hand, and was fled out, she called unto the men of the house, and told them saying: See, he hath brought in an Hebrew unto us to do us shame: for he came in to me, for to have slept with me. But I cried with a loud voice. And when he heard, that I lifted up my voice and cried, he left his garment with me and fled away and got him out.
And she laid up his garment by her, until her lord came home. And she told him according to these words saying. This Hebrews servant which thou hast brought unto us came in to me to do me shame. But as soon as I lifted up my voice and cried, he left his garment with me and fled out. When his master heard the words of his wife which she told him saying: after this manner did thy servant to me, he waxed wroth.
And he took Joseph and put him in prison: even in the place where the kings prisoners lay bound. And there continued he in prison, but the Lord was with Joseph and showed him mercy, and got him favour in the sight of the keeper of the prison which committed to Josephs hand all the prisoners that were in the prison house. And whatsoever was done there, that did he. And the keeper of the prison looked unto nothing that was under his hand, because the Lord was with him, and because that whatsoever he did, the Lord made it come luckily to pass
