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 dream during the nightmare of the dark season ...of the times and time ..of the season of man ...see son of man ...

      and words came to me without speaking ...

      and that like a blessing ...

      that like a wonderfull gift ...

      and a comfort ...

      and the words were sealed ...and seals...

      and a pause ...and a knowing ...

      and sealed is everlasting ...

      and an opening of the seals ...



 For our rock is not as their rock, no though our enemies be judge. But their vines are of the vines of Sodom, and of the fields of Gomorra. Their grapes are grapes of gall, and their clusters be bitter.
      Their wine is the poison of dragons, and the cruel gall of asps. Are not such things laid in store with me, and sealed up among my treasures? Vengeance is mine and I will reward: their feet shall slide, when the time cometh. For the time of their destruction is at hand, and the time that shall come upon them maketh haste.
      For the Lord will do justice unto his people, and have compassion on his servants. For it shall be seen that their power shall fail, and at the last they shall be prisoned and forsaken.
      And it shall be said: where are their Gods and their rock wherein they trusted?


Then said Jezabel his wife unto him: what a goodly kingdom were thou able to make in Israel? up and eat meat and set thine heart at rest, for I will give thee the vineyard of Naboth the Jezrahelite. And she wrote a letter in Ahabs name and sealed it with his seal, and sent it unto the elders and chief men of his city that dwelt where Naboth dwelt. And she wrote in the letter saying: proclaim fasting and set Naboth on high among the people, and set two unthriftes before him, and let them testify against him saying: thou didst curse both God and the king. And upon that carry him out and stone him to death.


Then were the kings scribes called on the thirteenth day of the first month, and there was written ( according as Haman commanded ) unto the kings princes, and to the captives everywhere in the lands, and to the rulers of every people in the countries on every side, according to the writing of every nation, and after their language in the name of king Ahasuerus, and sealed with the kings ring. And the writings were sent up by posts in to all the kings lands, to root out, to kill, and to destroy all Jewes, both young and old, children and women in one day, ( namely upon the thirteenth day of the twelfth month, which is the month Adar ) and to spoil their goods.


Then said the king Ahasuerus unto queen Esther, and to Mardocheus the Jew. Behold, I have given Esther the house of Haman, and him have they hanged upon a tree, because he laid hand upon the Jewes. Write ye now therefore for the Jewes, as it liketh you in the kings name, and seal it with the kings ring, ( for the writings that were written in the kings name, and sealed with the kings ring, durst no man disannul) Then were the kings scribes called at the same time in the third month, that is the month Sivan, on the three and twentieth day.
      And it was written ( as Mardocheus commanded ) unto the Jewes and to the princes, to the Deputies and captains in the lands from India until Ethiopia, namely an hundred and seven and twenty lands, unto every one according to the writing thereof, unto every people after their speach, and to the Jewes according to their writing and language.
      And it was written in the king Ahasuerus name, and sealed with the kings ring. And by posts that rode upon swift young Mules, sent he the writings, wherein the king granted the Jewes ( in what cities so ever they were ) to gather themselves together, and to stand for their life, and to root out, to slay and to destroy all the power of the people and land that would trouble them, with children and women, and to spoil their good upon one day in all the lands of king Ahasuerus, namely upon the thirteenth day of the twelfth month, which is the month Adar.

JOB Chpt 14

 For thou hast numbered all my goings, yet be not thou to extreme upon my sins. Thou hast sealed up mine offenses, as it were in a bag: but be merciful unto my wickedness. The mountains fall away at the last, the rocks are removed out of their place, the waters pierce through the very stones by little and little, the floods wash away the gravel and the earth: Even so destroyest thou the hope of a man in like manner. Thou prevailest against him, so that he passeth away : thou changes his estate, and puttest him from thee. Whether his children come to worship or no, he can not tell: And if they be men of low degree, he knoweth not. While he liveth, his flesh must have travail: And while the soul is in him, he must be in sorrow.


Thou art all fair, O' my love, and no *sport is there in thee. Come to me from Libanus, O' my spouse, and come to me from Liban: come soon the next way from the top of Amana, from the top of Sanir and Hermon, from the lions dens, and from the mountains of the leopards. Thou hast wounded my heart, O' my sister, my spouse, thou hast wounded my heart, with one of thine eyes, and with one chain of thy neck. O' how fair and lovely are thy breasts, my sister, my spouse? Thy breasts are more pleasant than wine, and the smell of thine ointments passeth all spices. Thy lips, O' my spouse, drop as the honeycomb, yee milk and honey are under thy tongue, and the smell of thy garments is like the smell of *frankincense. Thou art a well kept garden, O' my sister, my spouse, thou are a well kept watering spring, a sealed well. The fruits that sprout in thee, are like a very *Paradise of pomegranates with sweet fruits: as Cypress, Nardus, Saffron, Calmus, and all the trees of Libanus: Myrre, Aloes, and all the best spices. Thou art a well of gardens, a well of living waters, which run down from Libanus.

ESAI or ISAIAH Chpt 29

 So is the multitude of all the people that muster themselves against hill of Sion. But ye shall be at your wits end, ye shall be abashed: ye shall stagger, and reel to and fro.
      Ye shall be drunken, but not of wine. Ye shall fall, but not through drunkenness: For the Lord shall give you an hard sleeping spirit, and hold down your eyes: namely your Prophets and heads which should see, them shall he cover. And all visions shall be unto you, as the words that stand in a sealed letter, when one offereth it to a man that is learned, and sayeth: read us this letter. Then he answereth: I can not read it, for it is shut. But if it be given to one that is not learned, or say unto him: read this letter: Then sayeth he I can not read.
      Therefore thus sayeth the Lord: For so much as this people draweth near me with their mouth, and praiseth me highly with their lips, where as their heart nevertheless is far from me, and the fear which they owe unto me, that turn they to mens laws and doctrines, therefore will I also show unto this people a marvelous, terrible, and great thing ( Namely this: ) I will destroy the wisdom of their wise, and the understanding of their learned men shall perish. Woe be unto them that seek so deep, to hide their imagination before the Lord, which rehearse their counsels in darkness, and say: who seeth us, or who knoweth us? Which imagination of yours is even as when the potters clay taketh advisement, as though the work might say to the workmaster : make me not, or as when an earthen vessel sayeth of the potter: he understandeth not. See ye not that it is hard by, that Libanus shall be turned in to Charmel, and that Charmel shall be taken as wood? Then shall the deaf man understand the words of the book, and the eyes of the blind shall see without any cloud or darkness. The oppressed shall hold a merry feast in the Lord, and the poor shall rejoice in the holy one of 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. Now 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.


  I cause him also to make me a writing, and to seal it, and called record thereby, and weighed him there the money upon the weights. So I took the evidence with the copy ( when it was orderly sealed and read over ) and I gave the evidence unto Baruch the son of Neriah, the son of Maaseiah, in the sight of Hananeel my cousin, and in the presence of the witnesses, that be named in the evidence, and before all the Jews that were thereby in the court of the prison.
      I charged Baruch also before them, saying: The Lord of Hosts the God of Israel commandeth thee, to take this sealed evidence with the copy, and lay it in an earthen vessel, that it may long continue.
      For the Lord of Hosts the God of Israel hath determined, that houses, fields and vineyards shall be possessed again in this land.
      Now when I had delivered the evidence unto Baruch the son of Neriah, I besought the Lord, saying: O' Lord God, It is thou that hast made the heaven and earth with thy great power and high arm, and there is nothing too hard for thee. Thou showest mercy upon thousands, thou recompenses the wickedness of the fathers, into the bosom of the children come after them.
      Thou art the great and mighty God, whose name is Lord of Hosts: great in counsel, and infinite in thought: Thine eyes look upon all the ways of mens children, to reward every one after his way, and according to the fruits of his inventions: Thou hast done great tokens and wonders in the land of Egypt, ( as we see this day ) upon the people of Israel and upon those men: to make thy name great, as it is come to pass this day: Thou hast brought thy people of Israel out of the land of Egypt, with tokens, with wonders, with a mighty hand, with a stretched out arm and with great terribleness: and hast given them this land, like as thou haddest promised unto their fathers: Namely, that thou wouldest give them a land, that floweth with milk and honey.
      Now when they came therin, and possessed it, they followed not thy voice, and walked not in thy law: but all that thou commandedst them to do, that have they not done, and therefore come all these plagues upon them.
      Behold, there are bulwarks made now against the city, to take it: and it shall be won of the Caldees that besiege it, with sword, with hunger and death, and look what thou hast spoken, that same shall come upon them.
      For lo, all things are present unto thee: Yet sayest thou unto me ( O' Lord God) and commandest me, that I shall loose a piece of land unto myself, and take witness thereto: and yet in the mean season the city is delivered in to the power of the Caldees.
      Then came the word of the Lord unto me, saying: Behold, I am the Lord God of all flesh, is there any thing then too hard for me? Therefore thus saith the Lord: behold, I shall deliver this city into the power of the Caldees, and into the power of Nabuchodonosor the King of Babylon, they shall take it in: For the Caldees shall come, and win this city, and set fire upon it, and burn it: with the gorgeous houses, in whose parlors they have made sacrifice unto Baal, and poured drink offerings unto strange Gods, to provoke me unto wrath.
      For seeing the children of Israel, and the children of Judah have wrought wickedness before me ever from their youth up, what have they else done, but provoked me with the works of their own hands? saith the Lord.
      Or, what hath this city been else, but a provoking of my wrath, ever since the day that I builded it, unto this hour? Wherein I cast it out of my sight, because of the great blasphemes of the children of Israel and Judah, which they have done to provoke me: yee they, their kings, their princes, their Priests, their Prophets, whole Judah, and all the citizens of Jerusalem.
      When i stood up early, and taught them and instructed them, they turned their backs to me, and not their faces. They would not hear, to be reformed and correct. They have set their Gods in the house, that is hallowed unto my name, to defile it. They builded high places for Baal in the valley of the children of Hennom, to vow their sons and daughters unto Molech: which I never commanded them, neither came it ever in my thought, to make Judah sin with such abomination.
      Moreover thus hath the Lord God of Israel spoken, concerning this city, which
( as ye yourselves confess ) shall be delivered into the hand of the king of Babylon, when it is won with the sword, with hunger and with pestilence. Behold, I will gather them together from all lands, wherein I have scattered them in my wrath, in my fearful and great displeasure: and will bring them again unto this place, where they shall dwell safely. And they shall be my people, and I will be their God.
      And I will give them one heart, and one way, that they may fear me all the days of their life, that they and their children after them may prosper. And I will set up an everlasting covenant with them, Namely: that I will never cease to do them good, and that I will put my fear in their hearts, so that they shall not run away from me.
      Yee I will have a lust and pleasure to do them good, and faithfully to plant them in this land, with my whole heart and with all my soul.
      For thus saith the Lord: Like as I have brought all this great plague upon this people: so will I also bring upon them all the good, that I have promised them. And men shall have their possessions in this land, whereof ye say now, that it shall neither be inhabited of people ner cattle, but be delivered into the hands of the Caldees. Yee land shall be bought for money, and evidences made there upon and sealed before witnesses in the land of Ben Jamin, and round about Jerusalem: in the cities of Judah, in the cities that are upon the mountains, and in them that lie beneath, yee and in the cities that are in the desert. For I will bring their prisoners hither again, saith the Lord.


   The king also spake unto Daniel, and said: thy God whom thou always servest, even he shall defend thee. And there was brought a stone, and laid upon the hole of the den: this the king sealed with his own ring, and with the signet of his princes: that the kings commandment concerning Daniel, should not be broken.

DANIEL Chpt 12

 I heard it well, but I understood it not. Then said I : O my Lord, what shall happen after that ? He answered: Go thy way Daniel, for the words shall be closed up and sealed, till the last time: and many shall be purified, cleansed and tried. But the ungodly shall live wickedly, and those wicked ( as many as they be ) shall have no understanding. As for such as have understanding, they shall regard it. And from that time forth that the daily offering shall be put down and the abominable desolation set up, there shall be a thousand two hundred and ninety days. O well is him, that waiteth, and cometh to the thousand three hundred and thirty five days. Go thou thy way now, till it be ended: take thy rest, and bide in thy lot, till the days have an end.


   So every one wrote his meaning sealed it, and laid it under the Kings pillow, and said: when the king ariseth, we will give him our writings: and look whose word the King and his chief Lords judge to be the most wisely spoken, the same shall the victory. One wrote: Wine is a strong thing. The second wrote: The king is stronger. The third wrote: Women have yet more strength, but above all things the truth beareth away the victory. Now when the king was risen up, they took their writings and delivered them unto him, and so he read them. Then sent he forth and called all his chief lords, all the deputies and rulers of the countries of Medea and Persia. And when they were set down in the counsel, the writings were read before them. And he commanded to call for the young men that they might declare their meanings themselves by mouth. So when they were sent for, and came in, the King said unto them: show us and make us to understand, what the things are that ye have written.


Arise up! and stand fast: behold the number of those that be sealed in the feast of the Lord, which are departed from the shadow of the world, and have received glorious garments of the Lord. Take thy number O' Sion, and shut up thy purified, which have fulfilled the law of the Lord. The number of thy children that thou longest for, is fulfilled: beseech the power of the Lord, that thy people which have been called from the beginning, may be hallowed.


 And he said unto me: In the beginning when the ground was made: before the world stood, or ever the winds blew, before it thundered and lightened, or ever the foundations of paradise were laid, before the fair flowers were seen, or ever the moveable powers were established, before the innumerable multitude of angels were gathered together, or ever the highness of the air was lifted up, afore the measures of the firmament were named, or ever the chimneys of Sion were hot, and the present years were sought out, and or ever the inventions of those that now sin, were put aside, before they were sealed that now gather faith for a treasure: then did I consider and ponder all these things, and they all were made through me, and through none other: Then answered I and said: which shall be the parting asunder of the times? Or when shall the end of the first, and the beginning of it that followeth? And he said unto me: From Abraham unto Isaac, when Jacob and Esau were born of him, Jacobs hand held first the heel of Esau: for Esau is the end of this world, and Jacob is the beginning of it that followeth. The hand of man between the heel and the hand. Other question ( Esdras ) ask thou not.


For our time is a very shadow that passeth away, and after our end there is no returning, for it is fast sealed, so that no man cometh again. Come on therefore, let us enjoy the pleasures that there are, and let us soon use the creature like as in youth. We will fill ourselves with good wine and ointment, and there shall no flower of the time go by us. We will crown ourselves with rose afore they be withered. There shall be no fair meadow, but our lust shall go through it. Let everyone of you be partaker of our *voluptuousness. Let us leave some token of our pleasure in every place, for this is our portion, else we get nothing. Let us oppress the poor righteous, let us not spare the widow, ner old man, let us not regard the heads that are gray for age. Let the law of unrighteousness be our authority, for the thing that is feeble is nothing worth. Therefore let us *defraud the righteous; And why? He is not for our profit, yee he is clean contrary to our doings. He checketh us for offending against the law, and sclander us as transgressors of all nurture. He maketh his boast to have the knowledge of God, yee he calleth himself Gods son. He is the betrayer of our thoughts: It grieveth us also to look upon him, for his life is not like other mens, his ways are of another fashion. He counteth us as but vain persons, he withdraweth himself from our ways as from filthiness: he commendeth greatly the latter end of the just, and maketh his boast that God is his father. Let us see if his words be true, let us prove what shall come upon him: so we will know what end he shall have. For if he be the true son of God, he will receive him and deliver him from the hands of his enemies. Let us examine him with despiteful rebuke and tormenting, that we may know his dignity and prove his patience. Let us condemn him with the most shameful death: for like as he hath spoken, so shall he be rewarded.


The Prayer of Manasses
king of Juda, when he was holden captive in Babylon

      O' Lord Almighty, God of our fathers Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, and of that righteous seed of them: which hast made heaven and earth, with all the ornament thereof, which hast ordained the sea by the word of thy commandment: which hast shut up the deep, and hast sealed it for thy fearful and *laudable name, which all men fear, and tremble before the face of thy virtue, and for the anger of thy threatening the which is *importable to sinners.
      But the mercy of thy promise is great and unsearchable: for thou art the Lord God most high, above all the earth, longsuffering, and exceedingly merciful, and repentant for the malice of men.
      Thou Lord after thy goodness hast promised repentance of the remission of sins: and thou that art the God of the righteous hast not put repentance to the righteous, Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, unto them that have not sinned against thee: But because I have sinned above the number of the sands of the sea, and that mine iniquities are multiplied, I am humbled with many bands of iron, and there is in me no breathing.
      I have provoked thine Anger, and done evil before thee, in committing abominations and multiplying offenses. And now I bow the knees of my heart, *requiting goodness of thee O' Lord. I have sinned Lord, I have sinned, and know my iniquity. I desire thee by prayer, O' Lord forgive me: forgive me and destroy me not with mine iniquities, neither do thou always remember mine evils to punish them, but save me ( which am unworthy ) after thy great mercy: and I will praise thee everlastingly, all the days of my life for all the virtue of heaven praiseth thee, and unto thee belongeth the glory, world without end. Amen.


And many women were there, beholding him afar off, which followed Jesus from Galile, ministering unto him. Among which was Mary Magdalen, and Mary the mother of James and Joses, and the mother of Zebedes children. When the evening was come, there came a rich man of Arimathia named Joseph, which same also was Jesus disciple. He went to Pilate and begged the body of Jesus. Then Pilate commanded the body to be delivered. And Joseph took the body, and wrapped it in a clean linen cloth, and put it in his new tomb, which he had hewn out, even in the rock, and rolled a great stone to the door of the sepulchre and departed. And there was Mary Magdalene and the other Mary sitting over against the sepulchre. The next day that followeth the day of preparing the Saboth, the high priests and Pharisees got themselves to Pilate and said: Sir, we remember, that this deceiver said while he was yet alive. After three days I will arise again. Command therefore that the sepulchre be made sure until the third day, lest peradventure his disciples come and steal him away and say unto the people, he is risen from death, and the last error be worse than the first. Pilate said unto them. Take watchmen: Go, and make it as sure as ye can. And they went and made the sepulchre sure with watchmen, and sealed the stone.


 And when they had found him on the other side of the sea, they said unto him: Rabbi, when camest thou hither? Jesus answered them and said: verily, verily I say unto you: ye seek me, not because ye saw the miracles: but because ye ate of the loaves, and were filled. Labor not for the meat which perisheth, but for the meat that endureth unto everlasting life, which meat the son of man shall give unto you. For him hath God the father sealed.


Now go I unto Jerusalem, and minister unto the saints. For it hath pleased them of Macedonia and Achaia to make a certain distribution upon the poor saints which are at Jerusalem. It hath pleased them verily, and their debtors are they. For if the Gentiles be made partakers of their spiritual things, their duty is to minister unto them in carnal things. When I have performed this, and have brought them this fruit sealed. I will come back again by you into Spaine. And I am sure when I come, that I shall come with abundance of the blessing of the Gospell of Christ. I beseech you brethren for our Lord Jesus Christs sake, and for the love of the spirit, that ye help me in my business with your prayers to God for me, that I may be delivered from them which believe not in Jewry and that this my service, which I have to Jerusalem, may be accepted of the saints, that I may come unto you with joy, by the will of God, and may with you be refreshed. The God of peace be with you. Amen.


And in this confidence was I minded the other time to have come unto you, that ye might have had yet one pleasure more, and to have passed by you into Macedonia, and to have come again out of Macedonia unto you, and to have been led forth to Jewry ward of you. When I thus wise was minded: did I use lightness? Or think I carnally those things which I think? that with me should be yee, yee, and nay, nay. God is faithful: For our preaching unto you, was not yea and nay. For Gods son Jesus Christ which was preached among you by us (that is to say by me and Silvanus and Timotheus) was not yea and nay: but in him it was yee: For all the promises of God, in him are yee: and are in him Amen, unto the *laud of God through us. For it is God which stablisheth us and you in Christ, and hath anointed us, which hath also sealed us, and hath given the earnest of the spirit into our hearts.


   In whom also ye (after that ye heard the word of truth, I mean the Gospell of your salvation, wherein ye believed) were sealed with the holy spirit of promise, which is the earnest of our inheritance, to redeem the purchased possession, and that unto the *laud of his glory.


 Let no filthy communication proceed out of your mouths: but that which is good to edify with all, when need is: that it may have favour with the hearers. And grieve not the holy spirit of God, by whom ye are sealed unto the day of redemption. Let all bitterness, fierceness and wrath, roaring and cursed speaking, be put away from you, with all maliciousness. Be ye courteous one to another, and merciful, forgiving one another, even as God for Christs sake forgave you.


And I saw in the right hand of him, that sat in the throne, a book written within and on the backside, sealed with seven seals. And I saw a strong angel which cried with a loud voice: Who is worthy to open the book, and to loose the seals thereof? And no man in heaven nor in earth neither under the earth, was able to open the book, neither to look theron. And I wept much, because no man was found worthy to open and to read the book, neither to look theron.


And after that, I saw four angels stand on the four corners of the earth, holding the four winds of the earth, that the winds should not blow on the earth, neither on the sea, neither on any tree. And I saw another angel ascend from the rising of the *sun: which had the seal of the living God, and he cried with a loud voice to the four angels (to whom power was given to hurt the earth and the sea) saying: Hurt not the earth neither the sea, neither the trees, till we have sealed the servants of our God in their foreheads.
      And I heard the number of them which were sealed, and there were sealed an hundred and forty four thousand of all the tribes of the children of Israel. Of the tribe of Juda were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Reuben were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Gad were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Aser were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Nephtalim were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Manasses were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Simeon were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Levi were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Isacar were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Zabulon were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Joseph were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Benjamin were sealed twelve thousand.
      After this I beheld, and lo a great multitude (which no man could number) of all nations and people, and tongues, stood before the seat, and before the lamb, clothed with long white garments, and palms in their hands, and cried with a loud voice, saying: salvation be ascribed to him that sitteth upon the seat of our God, and unto the lamb. And all the angels stood in the compass of the seat, and of the elders and of the four beasts, and fell before the seat on their faces, and worshipped God, saying, Amen: Blessing and glory wisdom and thanks, and honour, and power, and might, be unto our God for evermore. Amen.
      And one of the elders answered, saying unto me: what are these which are arrayed in long white garments, and whence came they? And I said unto him: Lord thou *wettest. And he said unto me: these are they which came out of great tribulation and made their garments large, and made them white in the blood of the lamb: therefore are they in the presence of the seat of God and serve him day and night in his temple, and he that sitteth in the seat will dwell among them. They shall hunger no more neither thirst, neither shall the sun light on them, neither any heat. For the lamb which is in the midst of the seat, shall feed them, and shall lead them unto fountains of living water, and God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes.



 Now our God, thou great God, mighty and terrible, thou that keepest covenant and mercy, regard not a little all the travail that hath happened unto us, and our kings, princes, priests, prophets, fathers and all thy people, since the time of the kings of Assur unto this day. Thou art righteous in all that thou hast brought upon us: for thou hast done right. As for us, we have been ungodly, and our kings, princes, priests, and fathers have not done after thy law, nor regarded thy commandments, and thy earnest exhortations wherewith thou hast exhorted them, and have not served thee in their kingdom, and in thy great goods that thou gavest them, and in the large and plenteous land which thou gavest them, and have not converted from their wicked works. Behold, therefore are we in bondage this day: yee even in the land that thou gavest unto our fathers, to enjoy the fruits and goods thereof, behold, there are we bondsmen. And great is the increase of it unto the kings, whom thou hast set over us because of our sins, and they have dominion over our bodies, and cattle, and we are in great trouble. And in all of this we make a sure covenant, and write it, and let our princes, Levites, and priests seal it.



  O' set me as a seal upon thine heart, and as a seal upon thine arm: for love is mighty as the death, and jealousy as the hell. Her coals are of fire, and a very flame of the Lord: so that many waters are not able to quench love, neither may the streams drown it. Yee if a man would give all the good of his house for love, he should count it nothing.


 Now lay the witness together ( said the Lord ) and seal the law with my disciples. Thus I wait upon the Lord that hath turned his face from the house of Jacob, and I will look *unto him. But, lo, I as for me, and the children which the Lord hath given me: we are a token and a wonder in Israel, for the Lord of Hosts sake, which dwelleth upon the hill of Sion.


 Moreover, the word of the Lord came unto me, saying: Thou son of man, make a lamentable complaint over the king of Tyre, and tell him: Thus saith the Lord God: Thou art a seal of a likeness, full of wisdom and excellent beauty. Thou hast been in the pleasure garden of God: thou art decked with all manner of precious stones: with Ruby, Topas, Crystal, Jacinete, Onyx, Jaspis, Sapphire, *Smaragde, carbuncle, and gold. Thy beauty and the *holes that be in thee were set forth in the day of thy creation. Thou art a fair Cherub, stretched wide out for to cover.


 And she said unto me: that will I not do, I will not go into the city, but here will I die. So I communed more with her, and said: Do not so, but be counseled, and follow me: for how many falls hath Sion? Be of good comfort because of the sorrow of Jerusalem. For thou seest that our Sanctuary is laid waste, our altar broken, our temple destroyed, our playing of instruments and singing laid down, the thanksgiving put to silence, our mirth is vanished away, the light of our candlestick is quenched, the ark of the covenant is taken from us, all our holy things are defiled, and the name that is called upon over us, is dishonored: our children are put to shame, our priests are burnt, our Levites are carried away into captivity, our virgins are defiled, our wives are ravished, our righteous men spoiled, and our children destroyed, our young men are brought in bondage, and our strong worthies are become weak: and Sion ( which seal is greatest of all ) is loosed up from her worship: for she is delivered into the hands of them that hate us.


 He that cometh from an high is above all: He that is of the earth, is earthly, and speaketh of the earth. He that cometh from heaven, is above all, and what he hath seen and heard: that he testifieth: but no man receiveth his testimony. How be it, he that hath received his testimony hath set to his seal that God is true. For he whom God hath sent, speaketh the words of God. For God giveth not the spirit by measure (unto him). The father loveth the son and hath given all things into his hand. He that believeth on the son, hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the son, shall not see life, but the wrath of God abideth on him.


Came this blessedness then upon the circumcised or upon the uncircumcised? We say verily how that faith was reckoned to Abraham for righteousness. How was it reckoned? in the time of circumcision? or in the time before he was circumcised? Not in time of circumcision: but when he was yet uncircumcised. And he received the sign of circumcision, as a seal of the righteousness which is by faith, which faith he had yet being uncircumcised: that he should be the father of all them that believe, though they be not circumcised, that righteousness might be imputed to them also: and that he might be the father of the circumcised, not because they are circumcised only: but because they walk also in the steps of that faith that was in our father Abraham before the time of circumcision.


Am I not an Apostle? am I not free? have I not seen Jesus Christ our Lord? Are not ye my work in the Lord? If I be not an Apostle unto other, yet am I unto you. For the seal of mine Apostleship are ye in the Lord. Mine answer to them that ask me, is this. Have we not power to eat and to drink? Either have we not power to lead about a sister to wife, as well as other Apostles, and as the brethren of the Lord and Cephas? Either only I and Barnabas have not power this to do? Who goeth a warfare any time at his own cost? Who planteth a vineyard, and eateth not of the fruit? Who feedeth a flock and eateth not of the milk?


And after that, I saw four angels stand on the four corners of the earth, holding the four winds of the earth, that the winds should not blow on the earth, neither on the sea, neither on any tree. And I saw another angel ascend from the rising of the *sun: which had the seal of the living God, and he cried with a loud voice to the four angels (to whom power was given to hurt the earth and the sea) saying: Hurt not the earth neither the sea, neither the trees, till we have sealed the servants of our God in their foreheads.


And the fifth Angel blew, and I saw a star fall from heaven unto the earth. And to him was given the key of the bottomless pit. And he opened the bottomless pit, and there arose the smoke of a great furnace. And the sun and the air were darkened by the reason of the smoke of the pit. And there came out of the smoke locusts upon the earth: and unto them was given power as the scorpions of the earth have power. And it was commanded them, that they should not hurt the grass of the earth: neither any green thing: neither any tree: but only those men which have not the seal in their foreheads. And to them was commanded that they should not kill them, but that they should be vexed five months, and their pain was as the pain that cometh of a scorpion, when he hath stung a man. And in those days shall men shall seek death, and shall not find it, and shall desire to die, and death shall fly from them.


And I saw another mighty angel come down from heaven clothed with a cloud, and the rain bow upon his head. And his face as it were the sun, and his feet as it were pillars of fire, and he had in his hand a little book open: and he put his right foot upon the sea, and his left foot on the earth. And cried with a loud voice, as when a lion roareth. And when he had cried, seven thunders spake their voices. And when the seven thunders had spoken their voices, I was about to write. And I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, seal up those things which the seven thunders spake, and write them not.


  And I saw an Angel come down from heaven, having the key of the bottomless pit, and a great chain in his hand. And he took the dragon that old serpent, which is the devil and Sathanas, and he bound him a thousand years: and cast him into the bottomless pit, and he bound him, and set a seal on him, that he should deceive the people no more, till the thousand years were fulfilled. And after that he must be loosed for a little season.


 And he said unto me: seal not the sayings of 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.
