THE PSALMS Chpt 39
To the Chaunter for *Jduthun, a Psalme of David.
I said: I will keep my ways that I offended not in my tongue.
And so I shut my mouth, while the ungodly layed wait for me. I held my tongue, I was dumb, I kept silence, yee even from good words, but it was pain and grief to me. My heart was hot within me, I was thus musing, the fire kindled: so that I spake with my tongue, Lord, let me know mine end, and the number of my days: that I may be certified what I want.
Behold, thou hast made my days a span long, and my life as if it were nothing before thee.
O' how vain are all men living? Selah
Yee every man walketh as it were a shadow, and disquieteth himself in vain: he heapeth up riches, and can not tell to whom he gathereth them.
And now Lord wherein shall I comfort me? my hope is in thee. Deliver me from all mine offenses, and make me not a scorn unto the foolish. I kept silence, and opened not my mouth, for thou hast done it.
Turn thy plagues away from me, for I am consumed through the fear of thy hand.
When thou punishest man for sin, thou chastenest him: so that his beauty consumeth away, like as it were a moth.
O' how vain are all men. Selah.
Hear my prayer O' Lord, and consider my calling: show not thyself as though thou sawest not my tears. For I am a stranger and pilgrim with thee, as all my forefathers were.
Oh spare me a little that I may refresh myself, before I go hence, and be no more seen
*Jduthun is the Hebrew name meaning "praising"

ESAI or ISAIAH Chpt 40
To whom now will ye liken me, and whom shall I be like, sayeth the holy one? Lift up your eyes on high, and consider. Who hath made those things, which come out by so great heaps? and he can call them all by their names. For there is nothing hid unto the greatness of his power, strength, and might. Now then may Jacob think, or how may Israel say: my ways are hid from the Lord, and my God knoweth not my judgments. Knowest thou not, or hast thou not heard, that the everlasting God, the Lord, which made all the corners of the earth, is neither weary nor faint: and that his wisdom can not be comprehended? but that he giveth strength to the weary, and power to the faint, and the strongest men fall: But unto them that have the Lord before their eyes, shall strength be increased, Eagles wings shall grow upon them: When they run, they shall not fall: and when they go, they shall not be weary

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
THE LAMENTATIONS OF JEREMIAH Chpt 3
I am the man, that (through the rod of his wrath) have experience of misery.
He drove me forth, and led me: yes into the darkness, but not into the light. Against me only he turned his hand, and layeth ever upon me.
My flesh and my skin hath he made old, my bones hath he bruised.
He hath builded round about me, and closed me in with gall and travail.
He hath set me in darkness, as they that be dead for ever.
He hath so hedged me in, that I cannot get out, and hath laid heavy *linches upon me.
Though I cry and call piteously, yet heareth he not my prayer.
He hath stopped up my ways with four square stones, and made my paths crooked.
He layeth wait for me as a bear, and as a lion in a hole.
He hath marred my ways, and broken me in pieces: he hath laid me waste altogether. He hath bent his bow, and made me as it were a mark to shot at.
The arrows of his quiver hath he shot, even into my reins.
I am laughed to scorn of all my people, they make songs upon me all the day long.
He hath filled me with bitterness, and given me wormwood to drink.
He hath smitten my teeth in pieces, and rolled me in the dust.
He hath put my soul out of rest, I forget all good things.
I thought in myself: I am undone, there is no hope for me in the Lord.
O remember my misery and my trouble, the wormwood and the gall.
Yes thou shalt remember them, for my soul melteth away in me.
While I consider these things in my heart, I get a hope again
Namely, that the mercies of the Lord are not clean gone, and that his loving kindness ceases not.
His faithfulness is great and reneweth it self in the morning.
The Lord is my portion saith my soul, therefore will I hope in him.
O how good is the Lord unto them that put their trust in him, and the soul that seeketh after him:
O how good is it with stillness to wait and tarry, for the health of the Lord.
O how good is it for a man, to take the yoke upon him from his youth up.
He sitteth alone, he holdeth him still, and dwelleth quietly by himself.
He layeth his face upon the earth, if (percase) there happen to be any hope.
He offereth his cheek to the smiter, he will be content with reproves.
For the Lord will not forsake for ever.
But though he do cast off, yet according to the multitude of his mercies, he receiveth to grace again.
For he doth not plague, and cast out the children of men from his heart.
To tread all the prisoners of the earth under his feet ,
To move the judgement of man before the most highest.
To condemn a man in his cause; The Lord hath no pleasure in such things.
What is he then that saith: there should something be done without the Lords commandment: Out of the mouth of the most Highest goeth not evil and good?
Wherefore then murmureth the living man: let him murmur at his own sin.
Let us look well upon our own ways, and remember ourselves, and turn again to the Lord.
Let us lift up our heart with our hands unto the Lord that is in heaven.
We have been dissemblers, and have offended, will thou therefore not be entreated?
Thou hast covered us in thy wrath, and persecuted us, thou hast slain us, without any favor.
Thou hast hidden thyself in a cloud, that our prayer should go through.
Thou hast made us outcasts, and to be despised among the heathen.
All our enemies gape upon us.
Fear and a snare is come upon us, despite and destruction.
Whole rivers of water gush out of mine eyes, for the great hurt of my people.
Mine eyes run, and cannot cease, for there is no rest.
O' Lord, when will thou look down from heaven, and consider.
Mine eye breaketh my heart, because of all the daughters of my city.
Mine enemies hunted me out sharply, like a bird, yes and that without cause.
They have put down my life into a pit, and laid a stone upon me.
They poured water upon my head, then thought I: now I am undone.
I called upon thy name, O' Lord, out of the deep pit.
Thou hast heard my voice, and hast not turned away thine ears from my sighing and crying.
Thou hast inclined thy self unto me, when I called upon thee, and hast said: fear not.
Thou (O' Lord), hast maintained the cause of my soul, and hast redeemed my life.
O' Lord, thou hast seen my blasphemers, take thou my cause upon thee.
Thou hast well considered how they go about to do me harm, and that all their councils are against me.
Thou hast heard their despiteful words (O' Lord), yes and all their imaginations against me.
The lips of mine enemies, and their devices that they take against me, all the day long.
Thou seest also their sitting down and their rising up, they make their songs of nothing but me.
Reward them, (O' Lord), according to the work of their hands.
Give them the thing, that their own heart is afraid of: even thy curse.
Persecute them (O' Lord) with thine indignation, and root them out from under heaven
EZEKIEL or JEHEZEKIEL Chpt 18
The word of the Lord came unto me, on this manner: what mean ye, by this common proverb, that ye use in the land of Israel, saying: The fathers have eaten sour grapes, and the childrens teeth are set on edge? As truly as I live, saith the Lord God, ye shall use this byword no more in Israel.
Behold, all souls are mine. Like as the father is mine, so is the son mine also. The soul that sinneth, shall die. If a man be godly, and do the thing that is equal and right, he eateth not upon the hills: he lifteth not his eyes up to the Idols of Israel, he defileth not his neighbors wife: he meddleth with no menstruous woman: he grieveth nobody: he giveth his debtor his pledge again , he raketh none other mans goods by violence: he parteth his meat with the hungry: he clotheth the naked: he lendeth nothing upon usury: he taketh nothing over: he with draweth his hand from doing wrong: he handleth faithfully between man and man: he walketh in my commandments, and keepeth my laws, and performeth them faithfully: This is a righteous man, he shall surly live saith the Lord God.
If he now get a son, that is a murderer, a shedder of blood: if he do one of these things ( though he do not all ) he eateth upon the hills: he defiled his neighbors wife: he grieveth the poor and needy: he robbeth and spoileth: he giveth not the debtor his pledge again, he lifteth up his eyes unto Idols, and meddle with abominable things: he lendeth upon usury, and taketh moreover. Shall this man live? He shall not live. Seeing he hath done all these abominations, he shall die his blood shall be upon him.
Now if this man get a son also, that seeth all his fathers sins, which he hath done: and feareth, neither do such like: Namely , he eateth not upon the mountains: he lifteth not up his eyes to the Idols of Israel: he defileth not his neighbors wife: he vexeth no man: he keepeth no mans pledge, he neither spoileth, nor robbeth any man: he dealeth his meat with the hungry: he clotheth the naked: he opresseth not the poor: he receiveth no usury, nor anything over: he keepeth my laws, and walketh in my comandments: this man shall not die in his fathers sin, but shall live without fail. As for his father: because he oppressed and spoiled his brother, and did wickedly among his people: Lo, he is dead in his own sin. And yet say ye: Wherefore then should not the son bear his fathers sin? Therefore shall he live in deed. The same soul that sinneth, shall die. The son shall not bear the fathers offense. The righteousness of the righteous shall be upon him, and the wickedness of the wicked shall be upon him self also. But if the ungodly will turn away from all his sins that he hath done, and keep all my comandments, and do the thing that is equal and right: doubtless he shall live, and not die. As for all the sins that he did before, they shall not be thought upon: but in his righteousness that he hath done, he shall live. For have I any pleasure in the death of a sinner, sayeth the Lord God: but rather that he convert, and live?
Again: If the righteous turn away from his righteousness, and do iniquity, according to all the abominations, that the wicked man doeth, shall he live? All the righteousness that he hath done, shall not be thought upon: but in the fault that he offended withal and in the sin that he hath done, he shall die.
And yet ye say: Tush, the way of the Lord is not indifferent. Hear therefore ye house of Israel: Is not my way right? Or, are not your ways rather wicked? When a righteous man turneth away from his righteousness, and meddleth with ungodliness: he must die therein: yee for the unrighteousness that he hath done, he must die. Again: when the wicked man turneth away from his wickedness, that he hath done, and doeth the thing which is equal and right: he shall save his soul alive. For in so much that he remembereth himself, and turneth him from all ungodliness that he used, he shall live, and not die.
And yet saith the house of Israel: Tush, the way of the Lord is not equal. Are my ways unright, O ye house of Israel: Are not your ways rather unequal? As for me, I will judge every man, according to his ways, O ye house of Israel, saith the Lord God. Wherefore be converted, and turn you clean from all your wickedness, so shall there no sin do you harm. Cast away from you all your ungodliness, that ye have done: make you new hearts and new spirit. Wherefore will ye die, O ye house of Israel: seeing that I have no pleasure in the death of him that dieth, sayeth the Lord God. Turn you then, and ye shall live
THE FIRST TO THE CORINTHIANS Chpt 4
Let men this wise esteem us, even as the ministers of Christ, and disposers of the secrets of God. Furthermore it is required of the disposers that they be found faithful. With me is it but a very small thing, that I should be judged of you, either of (mans day). No, I judge not mine own self. I know *nought by myself: yet am I not thereby justified. It is the Lord that judgeth me. Therefore judge nothing before the time until the Lord come, which will lighten things that are hid in darkness and open the counsels of the hearts. And then shall every man have praise of God.
These things brethren I have described in mine own person and Apollos, for your sakes, that ye might learn by us, that no man count of him self beyond that which is above written: that one swell not against another for any mans cause. For who preferreth thee? What hast thou, that thou hast not received? If thou have received it, why rejoicest thou as though thou haddest not received it? Now ye are full: now ye are made rich: ye reign as kings without us: and I would to God ye did reign, that we might reign with you.
Me thinketh that God hath set forth us which are Apostles, for the lowest of all, as it were men appointed to death. For we are a gazing stock unto the world, and to the angels, and to men. We are fools for Christs sake and ye are wise through Christ. We are weak, and ye are strong. Ye are honorable, and we are despised. Even unto this day we hunger and thirst, and are naked, and are buffeted with fists, and have no certain dwelling place, and labour working with our own hands. We are reviled, and yet we bless. We are persecuted, and suffer it. We are evil spoken of, and we pray. We are made as it were the filthiness of the world, the off scouring of all things, even unto this time.
I write not these things to shame you: but as my beloved sons I warn you. For though ye have ten thousand instructors in Christ: yet have ye not many fathers. In Christ Jesu, I have begotten you through the Gospell. Wherefore I desire you to follow me. For this cause have I sent unto you Timotheus, which is my dear son and faithful in the Lord, which shall put you in remembrance of my ways which I have in Christ, even as I teach everywhere in all congregations. Some swell as though I would come no more at you. But I will come to you shortly, if God will: and will know, not the words of them which swell, but the power: for the Kingdom of God is not in words, but in power. What will ye? Shall I come unto you with a rod, or else in love and in the spirit of meekness?
TO THE HEBREWS Chpt 3
Therefore holy brethren, partakers of the celestial callings consider the ambassador and high priest of our profession Christ Jesus, which was faithful to him that made him, even as was Moses in all his house. And yet was this man counted worthy of more glory than Moses: In as much as he which hath prepared the house, hath most honour in the house. Every house is prepared of some man. But he that ordained all things, is God. And Moses verily was faithful in all his house, as a minister, to bear witness of those things which should be spoken afterward. But Christ as a son, hath rule over the house, whose house are we, so that we hold fast the confidence and the rejoicing of that hope, unto the end.
Wherefore as the *holy ghost saith: today if ye shall hear his voice, harden not your hearts, after the rebellion in the day of temptation in the wilderness, where your fathers tempted me, proved me, and saw my works forty years long. Wherefore I was grieved with that generation and said: They *erre ever in their hearts: they verily have not known my ways so that I sware in my wrath, that they should not enter into my rest. Take heed brethren that there be in none of you an evil heart in unbelief, that he should depart from the living God: but exhort one another daily, while it is called today, lest any of you wax hard hearted through the deceitfulness of sin.
We are partakers of Christ if we keep sure unto the end the first substance, so long as it is said: today if ye hear his voice, harden not your hearts, as when ye rebelled. For some, when they heard, rebelled: how be it not all that came out of Egypt under Moses. But with whom was he displeased forty years? Was he not displeased with them that sinned whose carcasses were overthrown in the desert? To whom sware he that they should not enter into his rest: but unto them that believed not? And we see that they could not enter in, because of unbelief
*holy ghost saith: aka: spirit of truth. *erre (error) then is plain; against the very truth and verity (realness) of God and Christ
