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 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 ...nothing to be seen of the eyes of the flesh ...
Yet of the eyes of the heart might any see ...
and there was shown thoughts without worth or substance ...
and thoughts given of God and Jesus in spirit and truth.
and the measure of the difference ...
and scripture came back to remembrance ...
FIRST BOOK OF MOSES Chpt 6
There were tyrants in the world in those days. For after that the children of God had gone in unto the daughters of men, and had begotten them children, the same children were the mightiest of the world, and men of renown. And when the Lord saw that the wickedness of man was increased upon the earth, and that all the imagination and thoughts of his heart was only evil continually, he repented that he had made man upon the earth, and sorrowed in his heart. And said: I will destroy mankind which I have made, from off the face of the earth: both man, beast, worm and fowl of the air, for it repenteth me that I have made them. But yet Noe found grace in the sight of the Lord.
FIRST BOOK OF SAMUEL Chpt 2
And Hannah prayed and said: mine heart rejoiceth in the Lord, mine horn is high in the Lord and my mouth is wide open over mine enemies, for I rejoice in thy saving. There is none so holy as the Lord: no there is none save thou. Neither is there any strength like unto our God. Talk not too much proudly: let old things depart out of your mouths, for the Lord is a God of knowledge, and Judgeth the thoughts. The *bones of the strong are broken: and the weak are endued with strength. They that were full, have hired out themselves for bread, and they that were hungry cease so to be: insomuch that the barren hath borne seven, and she that had many children is waxed feeble.
The Lord killeth and maketh alive, bringeth down to hell and fetcheth up again. The Lord maketh poor, and maketh rich, bringeth low, and heaveth up on high. He raiseth up the poor out of the dust, and lifteth up the beggar from the dunghill: to set them among princes, and to inherit them with the seat of glory. For the pillars of the earth are the Lords, and he hath set the round world upon them. He will keep the feet of his saints but the wicked shall keep silence in darkness. For in his own might shall no man be strong. The Lords adversaries shall be made to fear him: and out of heaven he shall thunder upon them. The Lord shall judge the ends of the world, and shall give might unto his King, and exalt the horn of his anointed. And Elkanah went to Ramath to his house, and the lad did minister unto the Lord before Eli the priest.
*bones: other places the Lord breaketh the bows of the mighty. MN
THE FIRST BOOK OF CHRONICLES Chpt 29
And riches and honor come of thee, and thou reignest over all, and in thine hand is power and strength, and in thine hand it is to make great and to give strength unto all.
And now our God, we thank thee, and praise thy glorious name. For what am I? And what is my people? That would obtain strength to be so willing? But all is of thee, and of that we received of thine hand we have given thee. For we be but strangers before thee and tenants, as were all our fathers. Our days on the earth is but a shadow, and there is none abiding. O' Lord our God, all this heap that we have prepared to build thee an house for thy holy name, cometh of thine hand, and is all thine.
I know my God, that thou provest the heart and hast pleasure in plainness. And in plainness of mine heart I have willingly given all this. And now I see thy people which are here in gladness, to offer willingly to thee. O' Lord God of Abraham, Isaac and Israel of our fathers, keep this for ever in the imagination of the thoughts of the heart of thy people, and prepare their hearts unto thee. And give unto Salomon my son, a pure heart to keep thy commandments, thy testimonies and thine ordinances, and to do all, and to build the house which I intended.
THE PSALMS Chpt 94
He that planted the ear, shall he not hear? he that made the eye, shall he not see?
He that *nurtureth the Heathen, and teacheth a man knowledge, shall not he punish?
The Lord knoweth the thoughts of men, that they are but vain.
Blessed is the man, whom thou learnest, ( O' Lord ) and teachest him in thy law.
That thou mayest givest him patience in time of adversity, until the pit be digged up for the ungodly. For the Lord will not fail his people, neither will he forsake his inheritance.
And why? judgment shall be turned again unto righteousness, and all such as be true of heart shall follow it. Who will rise up with me against the wicked? *who taketh my part against the evil doers?
If the Lord had not helped me, my soul had almost been put to silence.
THE PROVERBS Chpt 24
The thought of the fool is sin, and the scornful is an abomination to men.
THE BOOK OF THE PREACHER Chpt 2
Then said I thus in mine heart: Now go to, I will take mine ease and have good days. But lo, that was vanity also: in so much as I said unto laughter: thou art mad, and to *mirth: What doest thou?
So I thought in my heart, *to withdraw myself from wine, to apply my mind unto wisdom, and to comprehend foolishness until the time that among all things which are under the Sun, I might see what were best for men do, so long as they live under heaven.
I made gorgeous fair works. I builded me houses, and planted vineyards. I made me orchards and gardens of pleasure, and planted trees in them of all manner fruits. I made pools of water, to water the green and fruitful trees withal. I bought servants and maidens, and had a great household. As for cattle and sheep, I had more substance of them, then all they that were before me in Jerusalem. I gathered silver and gold together, even a treasure of kings and lands.
I provided me singers and women which could play of instruments, to make man mirth and pastime. I got me drinking cups also and glasses. Shortly, I was greater and in more worship, than all my predecessors in Jerusalem. For wisdom remained with me: And look whatsoever mine eyes desired, I let them have it: and wherein so ever my heart delighted, or had any pleasure, I withheld it not from it. Thus my heart rejoiced in all that I did, and this I took of all my travail. But when I considered all the works that my hands had wrought, and all the labors that I had taken therin: Lo, all was vanity and vexation of mind, and nothing of any value under the Sun. Then turned I me to consider wisdom, error and foolishness, for what is he among men, that might be compared to me the king in such work? And I saw that wisdom excelleth foolishness, as far as light doeth darkness. For a wise man beareth his eyes about in his head, but the fool goeth in the darkness. I perceived also that they both had one end. Then thought I in my mind: If it happeneth unto the fool as it doeth unto me, what needeth me then to labor any more for wisdom? So I confessed within my heart, that this also was but vanity. For the wise are ever as little in remembrance as the foolish, and all the days for to come shall be forgotten, Yee the wise man dieth as well as the fool. Thus began I to be weary of my life, in so much that I could away with nothing that is done under the Sun, for all was vanity and vexation of mind: Yee I was weary of all my labor, which I had taken under the Sun, because I should be *faine to leave them unto another man, that cometh after me for who knoweth, whether he shall be a wise man or a fool? And yet shall he be lord of all my labors, which I with such wisdom have taken under the Sun. Is this not a vain thing?
So I turned me to refrain from all such travail, as I took under the Sun: For so much as a man should weary himself with wisdom, with understanding and opportunity, and yet be fain to leave his labors unto another, that never sweat for them. This is also a vain thing and a great misery. For what getteth a man of all that labor and travail of his mind, that he taketh under the Sun, but heaviness, sorrow and disquietness all the days of his life? In so much that his heart can not rest in the night. Is this not also a vain thing? Is it not better then for a man to eat and drink, and his soul to be merry in his labor? Yee I saw that this also was a gift of God: For who may eat, drink, or bring anything to pass without him? And why? He giveth unto man, what it pleaseth him: whether it be wisdom, understanding, or gladness. But unto the sinner he giveth weariness and sorrow, that he may gather and heap together the thing, that afterward shall be given unto him whom it pleaseth God. This is now a vain thing, yee a very disquietness and vexation of mind
*mirth from the Hebrew is joy, gladness, rejoice
*to withdraw myself from wine; * (kjv and other bibles of man =to give myself unto wine )
*faine (obliged/ willing happy)
THE BOOK OF THE PREACHER Chpt 3
Every thing hath a time, yee all that is under the heaven, hath is convenient season. There is a time to be born, and a time to die. there is a time to plant, and a time to pluck up the thing, that is planted:
**A time to slay, and a time to make whole
A time to break down, and a time to build up.
A time to weep, and a time to laugh:
A time to mourn, and a time to dance:
A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together:
A time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing:
A time to win, and a time to *lese:
A time to spare, and a time to spend:
A time to cut in pieces, and a time to sew together:
A time to keep silence, and a time to speak:
A time to love, and a time to hate:
A time of war, and a time of peace.
What hath a man else ( that doeth anything ) but weariness and labor? For as touching the travail and carefulness which God hath given unto men, I see that he hath given it them, to be exercised in it. All this hath he ordered marvelous goodly, to every thing his due time. He hath planted ignorance in the hearts of men, that they should not find out the ground of his works, which he doeth from beginning to the end. So I perceived, that in these things there is nothing better for a man, then to be merry and to do well so long as he liveth. For all that a man eateth and drinketh, yee whatsoever a man enjoyeth of all his labor, the same is a gift from God. I considered also that whatsoever God doeth, it continueth for ever, and that nothing can be put unto it, nor taken from it: And that God doeth it to the intent, that men should fear him. The thing that hath been, is now: and the thing that is for to come, hath been afore time, for God restoreth again the thing that was past. Moreover, I saw under the sun ungodliness in the stead of judgment, and iniquity in stead of righteousness. Then thought I in my mind: God shall separate the righteous from the ungodly, and then shall be the time of judgement of all counsels and works. I communed with mine own heart also concerning the children of men: how that God hath chosen them, and yet letteth them appear as though they were beasts: For it happeneth unto men as it doth unto beasts, and as one dieth, so dieth the other: yee they have both one manner of *birth, so that ( in this ) a man hath no preeminence above a beast, but all are subdued unto vanity. They go all unto one place, for as they all be of dust, so shall they all turn unto dust again. Who knoweth the spirit of man that goeth upward, and the *breath of the beast that goeth down into the earth? Wherefore I perceive, that there is nothing better for a man, than to be joyful in his labor, for that is his portion. But who will bring him to see the thing that shall come after him?
**if needs be compare the following ...to the bibles of man. *lese (lose, lease):
*birth, (kjv and other bibles of man =breath)
*breath (kjv and other bibles of man = spirit)
ESAI or ISAIAH Chpt 1
Hear the word of the Lord ye tyrants of Sodoma: and hearken unto the law of our God, thou people of Gomorra. Why offer ye so many sacrifices unto me? I am discontent for the burntofferings of wethers, and with the fatness of fed beasts. I have no pleasure in the blood of bullocks, lambs, and goats. When ye appear before me, who requireth you to tread within my porches? Offer me no more oblations, for it is but lost labor. I abhor your incense. I may not away with your new moons, your Sabbaths and solemn days. Your fastings are also in vain. I hate your new holy days and fastings, even from my very heart. They make me weary, I can not abide them. Though ye hold out your hands, yet I turn my eyes from you. And though you make many prayers, yet I hear nothing at all, for your hands are full of blood.
Wash you, make you clean, put away your evil thoughts out of my sight, cease from doing evil and violence. Learn to do right, let the widows complaint come before you. Now go to ( sayeth the Lord ) we will walk together. Is it not so? Though your sins be as red as scarlet, shall they not be whiter than snow? And though they were like purple, shall they be not like white wool? Is it not so? If ye be loving and obedient, ye shall enjoy the best thing that groweth in the land. But if ye be obstinate and rebellious, ye shall be devoured with the sword: for thus the Lord hath promised with his own mouth.
How happeneth it then that the righteous city ( which was full of equity ) is become unfaithful as an whore? righteousness dwelt in it, but now murder. Thy silver is turned to dross, and thy wine mixed with water. Thy princes are traitors and companions of thieves. They love gifts altogether, and follow rewards. As for the fatherless, they help him not to his right, neither will they let the widows causes come before them. Therefore speaketh the Lord God of Hosts the mighty one of Israel: Ah, I must ease me of mine enemies, and avenge me upon them. And therefore shall I lay my hand upon thee, and burn out thy dross from the finest and purest, and put out all the lead, and set thy judges again as they were sometime, and thy Senators as they were from the beginning. The shalt thou be called the righteousness city, the faithful city. But Sion shall be redeemed with equity, and her captivity with righteousness. For the transgressors and ungodly, and such as are become unfaithful unto the Lord, must altogether be utterly destroyed.
And except ye be ashamed of the oaks trees wherein ye have so delighted, and of the gardens that ye have chosen: Ye shall be as an oak whose leaves are fallen away, and as a garden that hath no moistness. And as for the glory of these things, it shall be turned to straw, and he that made them to a spark. And they shall both burn together, so that no man shall be able to quench them
*faine (obligated/ willing happy)
ESAI or ISAIAH Chpt 55
Come to the waters all yee, that be thirsty, and yee that have no money. Come, buy, that yee may have to eat. Come buy wine and milk, without any money, or money worth. Wherefore do ye lay out your money, for the thing that feedeth not, and spend your labor about the thing that satisfieth you not. But harken rather unto me, and yee shall eat of the best, and your soul shall have her pleasure in plenteousness. Incline your ears, and come unto me, take heed, and your soul shall live. For I will make an everlasting covenant with you, even the sure mercies of David.
Behold, I shall give him for a witness among the folk, for a Prince and Captain unto the people. Lo, thou shalt call an unknown people: and a people that had no knowledge of thee, shall run unto thee: because of the Lord thy God, the holy one of Israel, which glorifieth thee. Seek the Lord, while he may be found, and call upon him while he is nye. Let the ungodly man forsake his ways and the unrighteous his imaginations, and turn again unto the Lord: so shall he be merciful unto him: and to our God, for he is ready to forgive. For thus sayeth the Lord: my thoughts are not your thoughts, and your ways are not my ways, but as far as the heavens are higher than the earth, so far do my ways exceed yours, and my thoughts yours. And like as the rain and snow cometh down from heaven, and returneth not thither again, but watereth the earth, maketh it fruitful and green, that it may give corn and bread unto the sower: So the word also that cometh out of my mouth shall not turn again void unto me, but shall accomplish my will and prosper the thing, whereto I send it. And so shall yee go forth with joy, and be lead with peace. The mountains and the hills shall sing with you for joy, and all the trees of the field shall clap their hands. For thorns, there shall grow, Fir trees, and that Myrtle tree instead of briers. And this shall be done to the praise of the Lord, and for an everlasting token, that shall not be taken away
JEREMIE or JEREMIAH Chpt 29
This is the Copy of the letter, that Jeremie the prophet sent from Jerusalem unto the prisoners: the Senators, priests, prophets, and all the people, whom Nabuchodonosor had led unto Babylon: after that time that king Jechoniah, and his Queen, his chamberlains the princes of Judah and Jerusalem the workmasters of Jerusalem were departed thither. Which letter Elasah the son of Saphan and Gamariah the son of Helkiah did bear, whom Zedekiah the king of Judah sent unto Babylon to Nabuchodonosor the king of Babylon: These were the words of Jeremies letter:
Thus hath the Lord of hosts the God of Israel spoken unto all the prisoners, that were led from Jerusalem unto Babylon: build you houses to dwell therin: plant you gardens, that ye may enjoy the fruits thereof: take you wives, to bear you sons and daughters: provide wives for your sons, and husbands for your daughters, that they may get sons and daughters, and that ye may multiply there. Labor not to be few, but seek after peace and prosperity of the city, wherein ye be prisoners, and pray unto God for it. For in the peace thereof, shall your peace be. For thus saith the Lord of hosts the God of Israel: Let not those prophets and soothsayers that be among you deceive you: and believe not your own dreams. For why, they preach you lies in my name, and I have not sent them, saith the Lord.
But thus saith the Lord: When ye have fulfilled seventy years at Babylon, I will bring you home, and of mine own goodness I will carry you hither again to this place. For I know what I have devised for you saith the Lord. My thoughts are to give you peace, and not trouble ( which I gave you already ) and that ye might have hope again. Ye shall cry unto me, ye shall go and call upon me, and I shall hear you. Ye shall seek me and find me, Yee, if so be that ye seek with your whole heart, I will be found of you, ( saith the Lord ) and will deliver you out of prison, and gather you together again out of all places wherein I have scattered you, saith the Lord: and will bring you again to the same place, from whence I caused you to be carried away captive.
But where as ye say, that God hath raised you up prophets at Babylon: Thus hath the Lord spoken ( concerning the king that sitteth in the stool of David, and all the people that dwell in this city, your brethren that are not gone with you into captivity ) Thus ( I say ) speaketh the Lord of hosts: Behold, I will send a sword, hunger and pestilence upon them, and will make them like untimely figs, that may not be eaten for bitterness. And I will persecute them with the sword, with hunger and death.
I will deliver them up to be vexed of all the Kingdoms, to be cursed, abhorred, laughed to scorn, and put to confusion of all the people, among whom I have scattered them: and that because they have not been obedient unto my commandments. ( saith the Lord ) which I sent unto them by my servants the prophets. I stood up early, and sent unto them, but they would not hear, saith the Lord. Hear therefore the word of the Lord, all ye prisoners, whom I sent from Jerusalem unto Babylon: Thus hath the Lord of hosts the God of Israel spoken, of Ahab the son of Colaiah, and of Zedekiah the son of Maasiah, which prophesy lies unto you in my name: Behold, I will deliver them into the hand of Nabuchodonosor the king of Babylon, that he may slay them before your eyes. And all the prisoners of Judah that are in Babylon, shall take upon them this term of cursing, and say: Now God do unto thee, as he did unto Zedekiah and Ahab, whom the King of Babylon roasted in fire, Because they sinned shamefully in Israel.
For they have not only defiled their neighbors wives, but also preached lying words in my name, which I have not commanded them. This I testify, and assure, saith the Lord. But as for Semaiah the Nehelamite thou shalt speak unto him: Thus sayeth the Lord of hosts the God of Israel: Because thou hast sealed letters under thy name unto all the people that is at Jerusalem, and to Sophoniah the son of Maasaih the priest yee and sent them to all the priests: wherein thou writest thus unto him: The Lord hath *ordened thee to be priest instead of Jehoiada the priest, that thou should be chief in the house of the Lord above all prophets, and preachers, and that thou mightest put them in prison, or in the stocks. How happeneth it then, that thou hast not reproved Jeremie of Anathoth, which never leaveth of his prophecing. And beside all this, he hath sent us word unto Babylon, and told us plainly, that our captivity shall long endure: that we should build us houses to dwell therin, and to plant us gardens, that we might eat the fruit thereof. Which letter Sophoniah the priest did read, and let Jeremie the prophet hear it.
Then came the word of the Lord unto Jeremie, saying: Send word to all them that be in captivity, on this manner: Thus hath the Lord spoken concerning Semeiah the Nehelamite: Because that Semeiah hath prophesied unto you without my commission, and brought you into a false hope, therefore thus the Lord doth certify you: Behold, I will visit Semeiah the Nehelamite, and his seed: so that none of his shall remain among this people, and none of them shall see the good, that I will do for this people, saith the Lord. For he hath preached falsely of the Lord
*ordened (ordered, ordained)
THE FOURTH BOOK OF ESDRAS Chpt 16
O' my people, hear my word, make you ready to the battle: and in all evil be as pilgrims upon the earth He that selleth, let him be as he that flyeth his way: and he that buyeth, as one that will lease. Who so occupieth merchandise, as he that winneth not: and he that buildeth, as he that shall not dwell therin: he that soweth, as one that shall not reap: he that twisteth the vineyard, as he that shall not gather the grapes: they that marry, as they that shall get no children: and they that marry not, as the widows: and therefore they that labor, labor in vain. For strangers shall reap their fruits, and spoil their goods, overthrow their houses, and take their children captive, for in captivity and hunger shall they get children. And they that occupy their merchandise with robbery, how long deck they their cities, their houses, their possessions, their persons? the more will I punish them for their sins, sayeth the Lord. Like as an whore envieth an honest woman, so shall righteousness hate iniquity, when she decketh herself, and shall accuse her to her face, when he cometh that defendeth, which shall make inquisition for all sin upon the earth. And therefore be not ye like thereunto, near to the works thereof: for or ever it be long, iniquity shall be taken away out of the earth, and righteousness shall reign among you.
Let not the sinner say, that he hath not sinned: for coals of fire shall burn upon his head, which sayeth before the Lord God and his glory: I have not sinned. Behold, the Lord knoweth all the works of men, their imaginations, their thoughts and their hearts. For he spoke but the word: let the earth be made, and it was made: let the heaven be made, and it was made. In his word were the stars made, and he knoweth the number of them. He searcheth the ground of the deep, and the treasures thereof: he hath measured the sea, and what it containeth. He hath shut the sea in the midst of the waters, and with his word hath he hanged the earth upon the waters. He spreadeth out the heaven like a *vawte, upon the waters hath he founded it. In the desert a dry wilderness hath he made springs of water, and poles upon the tops of mountains, that the floods might pour down from the stony rocks to water the earth. He made man, and put his heart in the midst of the body, and gave him breath, life and understanding, yee and the spirit of the Almighty God, which made all things, and hath searched the ground of all the secrets of the earth.
He knoweth your imaginations and inventions, and what ye think when ye sin, and would hide your sins. Therefore hath the Lord searched and sought out all your works, and he shall *bewray you all. And when your sins are brought forth, ye shall be ashamed before men, and your own sins shall be your accusers in that day. What will ye do? Or how will ye hide your sins before God and his Angels? Behold, God himself is the judge, fear him, leave off from your sins, and forget your unrighteousness, and meddle no more with them: so shall God lead you forth, and deliver you from all trouble. For behold, the heat of the great multitude is kindled over you, and they shall take away certain of you, and feed the idle with Idols: and they that consent unto them, shall be had in *derision, laughed to scorn, and trodden under foot.
For unto the places there shall be a place, and in the next cities a great insurrection upon those that fear the Lord. They shall be like madmen, they shall spare no man: they shall spoil and waste such as fear the Lord, their goods shall they take from them, and shut them out of their houses. Then shalt it be known who are my chosen, and they shall be tried as the gold in the fire. Hear O' ye my beloved, sayeth the Lord: behold, the days of trouble are at hand, but I will deliver you from the same. Be not afraid, despair not, for God is your captain.
Who so keepeth my commandments and precepts ( sayeth the Lord God ) let not your sins weigh you down, and let not your unrighteousness be lift up. Woe be unto to those that are subdued unto their own sins, and tangled in their wickednesses: like as a field is hedged in with bushes, and the path thereof covered with thorns, that no man may travel through: and so is he taken, and cast in the fire, and burnt
*darth=famine, lack. *vawte, ( vault ; from Mid Eng vaute: meaning an arched overhead covering). *bewray (disclose, reveal, uncover). *derision; laughed to scorn, and trod under foot contempt
THE GOSPELL OF ST. LUKE Chpt 24
As they thus spake Jesus him self stood in the midst of them, and said unto them: peace be with you. And they were abashed and afraid, supposing that they had seen a spirit. And he said unto them: Why are ye troubled, and why do thoughts arise in your hearts? Behold my hands and my feet, that it is even my self. Handle me and see: for spirits have not flesh and bones, as ye see me have. And when he had thus spoken, he showed them his hands and his feet. And while they yet believed not for joy and wondered, he said unto them: Have ye here any meat? And they gave him a piece of a broiled fish, and of an honey comb. And he took it, and ate it before them.
And he said unto them. These are the words which I spake unto you while I was yet with you: that all must be fulfilled which were written of me in the law of Moses and in the Prophets, and in the Psalmes:
Then opened he their wits, that they might understand the scriptures, and said unto them: Thus is it written, and thus it behoved Christ to suffer, and to rise again from death the third day, and that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in his name among all nations, and must begin at Jerusalem. And ye are witnesses of these things. And behold, I will send the promise of my father upon you. But tarry ye in the city of Jerusalem, until ye be endued with power from on high.
And he led them out into Bethany, and lift up his hands and blessed them. And it came to pass, as he blessed them, he departed from them, and was carried up into heaven. And they worshipped him, and returned to Jerusalem with great joy, and were continually in the temple praising and lauding God: Amen
THE GOSPELL OF ST. LUKE Chpt 12
Let your loins be girded about, and your lights burning, and ye yourselves like unto men, that wait for their master, when he will return from a wedding: that as soon as he cometh and knocketh, they may open unto him. Happy are those servants, which the Lord when he cometh shall find waking. Verily I say unto you, he will gird himself about and make them sit down to meat, and walk by and minister unto them. And if he come in the second watch, ye if he come in the third watch, and shall find them so, happy are those servants. This understand, that if the good man of the house knew what hour the thief would come, he would surely watch: and not suffer his house to be broken up. Be ye prepared therefore: for the son of man will come at an hour when ye think not.
TO THE HEBREWS Chpt 4
Seeing therefore it followeth that some must enter thereinto, and they to whom it was first preached, entered not therein for unbeliefs sake. Again he appointeth in David a certain present day after so long a time, saying as it is rehearsed: this day if ye hear his voice, be not hard hearted. For if Joshua had given them rest, then would he not afterward have spoken of another day. There remaineth therefore yet a rest to the people of God. For he that is entered into his rest, doth cease from his own works as God did from his.
Let us study therefore to enter into that rest, lest any man fall after the same example, into unbelief. For the word of God is quick, and mighty in operation, and sharper then any two edged sword: and entereth through, even unto the dividing asunder of the soul and the spirit, and of the joints and the *mary : and judgeth the thoughts and the intents of the heart: neither is there any creature invisible in the sight of him. For all things are naked and bare unto the eyes of him, of whom we speak
*mary (marrow? )
