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.

SECOND BOOK OF MOSES Chpt 23
Thou shalt not accept a vain tale, neither shalt put thine hand with the wicked to be an unrighteous witness. Thou shalt not follow a multitude to do evil: neither answer in a matter of plea that thou ( wouldest to follow many ) turn aside from the truth, neither shalt thou paint a poor mans cause.
JEREMIE or JEREMIAH Chpt 4
What wilt thou now do, thou being destroyed? For though thou clothest thyself with scarlet, and deckest thee with gold: though thou paintest thy face with colors, yet shalt thou trim thyself in vain.
For those that hitherto have been thy great favorers, shall abhor thee, and go about to slay thee. For ( me think ) I hear a noise, like as it were of a woman travailing, or one laboring of her first child: Even the voice of the daughter Sion, that casteth out her arms, and sorroweth, saying: Ah woe is me, how sore vexed and faint is my heart, for them that are slain?
JEREMIE or JEREMIAH Chpt 22
And all the people that go in this city, shall speak to one another: Wherefore hath the Lord done thus unto this noble city? Then shall it be answered: because they have broken the covenant of the Lord their God, and have worshipped and served strange gods. Mourn not over the dead, and be not woe for them, but be sorry for him that departeth away: for he cometh not again, and seeth his native country no more. For thus saith the Lord, as touching Selum the son of Josiah king of Judah, which reigned after his father, and is carried out of this place: He shall never come hither again, for he shall die in the place, where unto he is led captive, and shall see this land no more. Woe worth him, that buildeth his house with unrighteousness, and his parlors with the good that he hath gotten by violence: which never recompenceth his neighbors labor, ner payeth him his hire. He thinketh in himself: I will build me a wide house, and gorgeous parlors: He causeth windows to be hewn therin, and the ceilings and *geastes maketh he of Cedar, and painteth them with Zenober. Thinkest thou to reign, now that thou provokest me to wrath with the Cedar trees?
EZEKIEL or JEHEZEKIEL Chpt 8
And behold, the glory of the God of Israel was in the same place: even as I had seen it afore in the field. And he said unto me: Thou son of man, O lift up thine eyes, and look toward the north. Then I lift up mine eyes toward the north., and behold: before the port northward, there was an altar made unto the image of provocation in the very entering in. And he said furthermore unto me: Thou son of man, seest thou what these do? Seest thou the great abominations that the house of Israel comites in this place? which ought not to be done in my sanctuary: But turn thee about, and thou shalt see yet greater abominations. And with that brought he me to the court gate: and when I looked, behold, there was an hole in the wall. Then said he unto me: Thou son of man, dig through the wall. And when I digged through the wall, behold there was a door. And he said unto me: Go thy way in, and look what wicked abominations they do there. So I went in, and saw: and behold, there were all manner of images of worms and beasts, all Idols and abominations of the house of Israel painted every one round about the wall. There stood also before the images. Seventy of the Lords of the counsel of the house of Israel: and in the midst of them stood Jaazaniah the son of Saphan: And every one of them had a censor in his hand, and out of the incense, there went a smoke, as it had been a cloud. Then said he unto me: Thou son of man, has thou seen what the Senators of the house of Israel do secretly, everyone in his chamber: For they say, Tush, the Lord seeth us not, the Lord regardeth not the world. And he said unto me: Turn thee yet again, and thou shalt see the great abominations that they do. And with that he brought me to the door of the port of the Lords house, toward the north. And behold, there fat women mourning for Thamus. Then said he unto me: hast thou seen this, thou son of man? Turn ye about, and thou shalt see yet greater abominations. And so he brought me into the inward court of the Lords house: And behold at the port of the Lords house, between the for entry and the altar, there were five and twenty men, that turned their backs on the temple of the Lord, and their faces toward the east, and these worshiped the son.
And he said unto me: hast thou seen this thou son of man? Thinketh the house of Israel , that it is but a trifle, to do these abominations here? Should they fill the land full of wickedness, and undertake to provoke me unto anger: Yee and purposely to cast up their noses upon me? Therefore will I also do something in my wrothfull displeasure, so that mine eye shall not over see them, neither will I spare them. Yee and though they cry in mine ears with loud voice, yet will I not hear them
EZEKIEL or JEHEZEKIEL Chpt 23
The word of the Lord came unto me, saying: Thou son of man, there were two women, that had one mother: These ( when they were young ) began to play the harlots in Egypt. there were their breasts *brosed, and the pappes of their maidenhead destroyed. The eldest of them was called Oholah and her younger sister Oholibah. These two were mine, and they bare sons and daughters. Their names were, Samaria, and that was Oholah: and Jerusalem, that was Oholibah: As for Oholah she began to go a whoring, when I had taken her to me. She was set on fire upon her lovers the Assirians, which had to do with her: even the princes and lords, that were decked in costly array: fair young men lusty riders of horses.
Thus through her whoredom, she cleaved unto all the young men of Assyria: yee she was mad upon them, and defiled herself with all their Idols. Neither ceased she from the fornication, that she used with the Egyptians: for in her youth they lay with her, they brosed the breasts of her maidenhead and poured their whoredom upon her. Wherefore I delivered her into the hands of her lovers, even the Assyrians, whom she so loved. These discovered her shame, took her sons and daughters, and slew her with the sword: An evil name gat she of all the people, and they punished her.
Her sister Aholibah saw this, and destroyed herself with inordinate love, more than she, and exceeded her sister in whoredom she loved the Assyrians, ( which also lay with her ) namely, the princes and great lords, that were clothed with all manner of gorgeous apparel, all lusty horsemen and fair young persons. Then I saw, that they both were defiled a like. But she increased her whoredom: for when she saw men painted upon the wall, the images of the Chaldees set forth with fresh colors, with fair girdles about them, and goodly bonnets upon their heads, looking all like Princes ( after the manner of the Babylonians and Chaldees in their own land, where they be born ) immediatley, as soon as she saw them, she burnt in love upon them, and sent messengers for them into the land of the Chaldees.
Now when the Babylonians came to her, they lay with her, and defiled her with their whoredom, and so was she polluted with them. And when her lust was abated from them, her whoredom and shame was discovered and seen: then my heart forsook her, like as my heart was gone from her sister also. Nevertheless, she used her whoredome ever the longer the more, and remembered the days of her youth, wherein she had played the harlot in the land of Egypt: she burnt in lust upon them, whose flesh was like the flesh of Asses, and their seed like the seed of horses. Thus thou hast renewed the filthiness of thy youth, when thy lovers *bresed thy paps, and marred thy breasts in Egypt.
Therefore ( O Aholibah ) thus saith the Lord God. I will raise up thy lovers (with whom thou hast satisfied thy lust ) against thee, and gather them together round about thee: namely the Babylonians, and all the Chaldees: Pecod, Schoa, and Coa, with all the Assyrians: all young and fair lovers: princes and lords, knights and gentlemen, which be all good horsemen: These shall come upon thee with horses, chariots, and a great multitude of people: which shall be harnessed about thee on every side, with breastplates, shields and helmets. I will punish thee before them, yee they themselves shall punish thee, according to their own judgement. I will put my jealousy upon thee, so that they shall deal cruelly with thee. They shall cut off thy nose and thine ears, and the remnant shall fall through the sword. They shall carry away thy sons and thy daughters, and the residue shall be burnt in the fire. They shall strip thee out of thy clothes, and carry thy costly jewels away with them.
Thus I will make an end of thy filthiness and whoredom, which thou hast brought from the land of Egypt: so that thou shalt turn thine eyes no more after them, and cast thy mind no more upon Egypt. For thus saith the Lord: behold, I will deliver thee into the hands of them, whom thou hatest: yee even into the hands of them, with whom thou hast fulfilled thy lust, which shall deal cruelly with thee, and shall take away all thy labor, and thus the shame of thy filthy whoredom shall come to light. All these things shall happen unto thee, because of thy whoredom, which thou hast used among the Gentiles, with whos Idols thou hast defiled thy self. Thou hast walked in the way of thy sister, therefore will I give thee her cup in thine hand.
Thus saith the Lord God: Thou shalt drink of thy sisters cup, how deep and *tarre so ever it be to the bottom. Thou shalt be laughed to scorn, and had as greatly in derision, as possible. Thou shalt be full of drunkenness and sorrow, for the cup of thy sister Samaria is a cup of destruction and wasting: The same shalt thou drink, and sup it out even to the dregs, Yee thou shalt eat up the broken pieces of it, and so tear thine own breasts: for even I have spoken it, saith the Lord God.
Therefore thus saith the Lord God: For so much as thou hast forgotten me, and cast me aside, so bear now thy own filthiness and whoredom. The Lord said moreover unto me: Thou son of man, wilt thou not reprove Oholah and Oholibah? Show them their abominations: namely, That they have broken their wedlock, and stained their hands with blood: Yee even with their idols have they committed *advoutry, and offered them their own children ( to be devoured ) whom they have born unto me. Yee and this have they done unto me also: they have defiled my Sanctuary in that same day, and have unhallowed my sabbaths. For when they had slain their children for their idols, they came the same day into my Sanctuary to defile it. Lo, this have they done in my house. Beside all this, thou has sent thy messengers for men out of far countries: and when they came, thou hast bathed, trimmed and set forth thy self of the best fashion: thou satest upon a goodly bed, and a table spread before thee: whereupon thou hast set mine incense and mine oil.
Then there was great cheer with her: and the men that were sent from far countries over the desert, unto these they gave bracelets upon their hands, and set glorious crowns upon their heads: Then thought I: no doubt, these will use their harlotry also with yonder old whore. And they went into her, as unto a common harlot: Even so went they also to Oholah and Oholibah those filthy women.
O ye all that love virtue and righteousness, judge them, punish them: as *advoutrers and murderers ought to be judged and punished. For they are breakers of wed lock, and the blood is in their hands. Wherefore thus saith the Lord God: bring a great multitude of people upon them, and make them be scattered and spoiled: these shall stone them and gore them with their swords. They shall slay their sons and daughters and burn up their houses with fire.
Thus I will destroy all such filthiness out of the land, that all women may learn, not to do after your uncleanness. And so they shall lay your filthiness upon your own selves, and ye shall be punished for the sins, that ye have committed with your Idols: and ye shall know that I am the Lord
*brosed= perhaps bruised RN *bresed=cooked in fat (old French). *tarre=detestable.
*advoutry: prefix "a" meaning not or without, devout: devotion to God our father, Jesu his son, love, truth, spirit. In most cases; in the KJV and other bibles of man this word was replaced with "adultery". see the children are offered up to the same advoutry. see James 2 for adultery
THE BOOK OF WISDOM Chpt 13
Vain are all men, which have not the knowledge of God: as were they that out of the good things which are seen, knew not him, that of himself is everlasting. Neither took they so much regard of the works that are made, as to know, who was the craftsman of them: but some took the fire, some the wind or air, some the course of the stars, some the water, some took Sun and Moon, or the lights of heaven which rule the earth, for gods. But though they had such pleasure in their beauty, that they thought them to have been gods: yet should they have known, how much more fairer he is that made them. For the maker of beauty hath ordained all these things. Or if they marveled at the power and works of them, they should have percieved thereby, that he which made these things are mightier than they.
For by the greatness and beauty of the creature, the maker thereof may plainly be known. Not withstanding they are the less to be blamed, that sought God, and would have found him, and yet missed. And why? for so much as they went about his works and sought after them, it is a token, that they regarded and held much of his works that are seen. howbeit they are not wholly to be excused. For if their knowledge and understanding was so great, that they could discern the world and its creatures, why did they not rather find out the Lord thereof?
But unhappy are they, and among the dead is their hope, that call them Gods, which are but the works of mens hands: gold, silver, and the thing that is found out by conning, the similitude of beasts, or any vain stone that hath been made by hand of old. Or as when a carpenter cutteth down a tree out of the wood, and pareth the bark of it conningly: and so with the one part maketh a vessel to be used, and *dighteth meat with the residue. As for the other part that is left, which is profitable for nothing ( for it is a crooked piece of wood and full of knobs, he carveth it diligently through his vanity, and according to the knowledge of his conning ) he giveth it some proportion, fashioneth it after the similitude of a man, or maketh it like some beast, streak it over with red, and painteth it, and look what foul spot is in it he casteth some color upon it.
Then maketh he a convenient tabernacle for it, setteth it in the wall, and maketh it fast with iron, providing so for it, least it happen to fall: for it is well known, that it can not help itself: And why? it is but an image, and must of necessity be helped.
Then goeth he and offereth of his goods unto it, for his children and his wife: he seeketh help at it, he asketh counsel at it: he is not ashamed to speak unto it that hath no soul: for health, he maketh his petition unto him that is sick: for life, he prayeth unto him that is dead: he calleth upon him for help, that is not able to help himself: and to send him a good journey, he prayeth him that may not go. And in all the things that he taketh in hand ( whether it be to obtain anything or to work ) he prayeth unto him that can do no manner of good
THE BOOK OF WISDOM Chpt 15
But thou ( O' our God ) art sweet, long suffering and true, and in mercy orderest thou all things. Though we sin, yet we are thine, for we know thy strength. If we sin not, then are we sure, that thou regard us. For to know thee, is perfect righteousness: Yee to know thy righteousness and power, is the root of immortality. As for the thing that men have found out through their evil science, it hath not deceived us: as the painting of a picture ( an unprofitable labor ) an carved image, with diverse colors, whose sight enticeth the ignorant: so that he honoreth and loveth the picture of the dead image that hath no soul.
Nevertheless, they that love such evil things, are worthy of death: they that trust in them, they that make them, they that love them, and they that honor them. The potter also taketh and tempereth soft earth, laboreth it, and giveth it the fashion of a vessel, whatsoever serveth for our use: and so of one piece of clay he maketh some clean vessel for service, and some contrary. But where to every vessel serveth, that knoweth not the potter himself. So with his vain labor he maketh a God of the same clay: this doth even he, which a little afore was made of earth himself, and within a little while after ( when he dieth ) turneth to earth again.
Notwithstanding, he careth not the more because he shall labor, ner because his life is short: but striveth to excel goldsmiths, the silversmiths and coppersmiths, and taketh it for an honor to make vain things. For his heart is ashes, his hope is but vain earth, and his life is more vile than clay: for so much as he knoweth not his own maker, that gave him his soul to work, and breath in him the breath of life. They count our life but a pastime and our conversation to be but a market, and that men should ever be getting, and that by evil means. Now he that of earth maketh frail vessels and images, knoweth himself to offend above all other.
All the enemies of thy people and that hold them in subjection, are unwise, unhappy, and exceedingly proud unto their own souls: for they judge all the Idols of the Heathen to be gods, which neither have eye sight to see, ner noses to smell, ner ears to hear, nor fingers of hands for to grope: and as for their feet, they are too slow to go. For man made them, and he that hath but a borrowed spirit, fashioned them. But no man can make a God like unto him: for seeing he is but mortal himself, it is but mortal that he maketh with ungodly hands. He himself is better then they whom he worshipeth, for he lived though he was mortal, but so did never they. Yee they worship beasts also, which are most miserable: for compare things that cannot feel unto them, and they are worse then those. Yet is there not one of these beasts, that with his sight can behold any good thing, neither have they given praise ner thanks unto God
THE SECOND OF THE MACHABEES Chpt 2
For he that buildeth an house anew, must provide for many things, to the whole building: but he that painteth it afterward, seeketh but only what is comely, *mete and convenient to garnish withal. Even so do we also in like manner. And why? He that begineth to write a story for the first, must with his understanding gather the matter together, set his words in order, and diligently seek out of every part: But he that afterward will shorten it, useth few words, and toucheth not the matter at the largest. Let this be sufficient for a Prologue, now will we begin to show the matter: for it is but a foolish thing to make a long Prologue, and to be short in the story it self
THE GOSPELL OF ST. MATTHEW Chpt 23
Woe be to you Scribes and Pharisees hypocrites, for ye are like unto painted tombs which appear beautiful outward: but are within full of dead bones and of all filthiness. So are ye, for outward ye appear righteous unto men, when within, ye are full of hypocrisy and iniquity.
THE ACTS OF THE APOSTLES Chpt 23
Paul beheld the council and said: men and brethren, I have lived in all good conscience before God until this day. The high priest Ananias commanded them that stood by to smite him on the mouth. Then said Paul to him: God smite thee, thou painted wall. Sittest thou and judgest me after the law? and commandest me to be smitten contrary to the law? And they that stood by, said: revilest thou Gods high Priest? Then said Paul: I wist not brethren, that he was the high priest. For it is written, thou shalt not curse the ruler of thy people.
