place : but Ephraim shall bring forth his children to the murderer.
Give them, O Lord: what wilt thou give? give them a mis-

for there 3 l)ateb tl)em : for the wickedness of their doings I will

The great day of the Lord is near, it is near, and hasteth

shall hear his voice, and shall come forth; they that have done

unto tl)e resurrection of bomnation.

Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is |)CU)n boUJU,

Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not
prophesied in thy name ? and in thy name have cast out devils ?
and in thy name done many wonderful works ? And then will I

profess unto them, J ncoer kucto gou : bepart from me, pc tl)at

Therefore, whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth
them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon
a rock : and the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds
blew, and beat upon that house ; and it fell not : for it was founded
upon a rock.

And eveiy one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth

Another parable put he forth unto them, saying. The kingdom
of heaven is likened unto a man which sowed good seed in his
field : but while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among
the wheat, and went liis way. But when the blade was sprung up,
and brought forth fruit, then appeared the tares also. So the serv-
ants of the householder came and said unto him. Sir, didst not thou
sow good seed in thy field ? from whence then hath it tares ? He
said imto them, An enemy hath done this. The servants said unto
him, Wilt thou then that we go and gather them up ? But lie
said, Nay ; lest while ye gather up the tares, ye root up also the



wheat with them. Let both ffrow together until tlie hai-vest : and
in the time of liarvest I will say to the reapers, <6atl)Cr JIC togctljcr

first tl)c tares, unb binb tl)cm in bunblcs to burn tl)cm : but

gathei' the wheat into my barn

The Son of man shall send forth his angels, and they shall
gatljcr out of Ijis kingbom fvll things that otfend, and them which
do iniquity; ottb sl)aU cast tl)cm into a furnace of fire : there
shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth.

Whosoever shall deny me before men, l)iin U)iU 3 also beun
before my Father which is in heaven.

Whosoever shall be ashamed of me and of my words in this
adulterous and sinful generation ; of Ijim also sl)aU tl)C SoU of

If thy hand or thy foot offend thee, cut them off, and cast
them from thee : it is better for thee to enter into life halt or
maimed, rather than having two hands or two feet tO be cast iutO
jencrlasting fire. And if thine eye offend thee, i)luek it out,

and cast it from thee : it is better for tljce to enter into life tuiti)
one cne, ratl]cr tl)an Ijauing two enes to be cast into l)eU fire.

The Son of man is come to save that which was lost.

Jesus saith unto them, Did ye never read in the scriptures.
The stone which the builders rejected, the same is become the head
of the corner : this is the Lord's doing, and it is marvellous in our
eyes ?

Therefore say I unto you. The kingdom of God shall be taken
from you, and given to a nation bringing forth the fruits thereof.
And whosoever shall fall on this stone, shall be broken : but on

rol)omsoeuer it sl)all fall, it mill grinb l]im to poujbcr.

Ye be witnesses unto yourselves, that ye are the children of
them which killed the prophets. Fill ye up then the measure of
your fathers.

Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom his lord hath
made ruler over his household, to give them meat in due season ?
Blessed is that servant, whom his Lord, when he cometh, shall find
so doing. Verily I say unto you. That he shall make him ruler
over all his goods. But and if that evil servant shall say in his
heart, My lord delayeth his coming ; and shall begin to smite his
fellow-servants, and to eat and drink with the drunken ; the lord of
that servant shall come in a day when he looketh not for him, and
in an hour that he is not aware of, anb sl)all cut l)im asuuber,
arib appoint l)im Ijis portion witi) tl)e l)npocrites : there shall

Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins,
which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegi'oom.
And five of them were wise, and five were foolish. They that were
foolish took their lamps, and took no oil with them : but the wise
took oil in their vessels with their lamjis.

While the bridegroom tarried, they all slumbered and slept. .
And at midnight there was a cry made. Behold, the bridegroom
coineth ; go ye out to meet him. Then all those virgins arose, and
trimmed their lamps. And the foolish said unto the wise. Give us
of your oil ; for our lamps are gone out. But the wise answered,
saying. Not so ; lest there be not enough for us and you : but go
ye rather to them that sell, and buy for yourselves.

And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came ; and they
that were ready went in with him to the marriage : aixb tl)C boor

Lord, open to us. But l)c ansujercb anh saib, bcrilj) J sat)

Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour
wherein the Son of man cometh.

For the kingdom of heaven is as a man travelling into a far
country, who called his own servants, and delivered unto them his
goods. And unto one he gave five talents, to another two, and to
another one ; to every man according to his several ability ; and
straightway took his journey

After a lono: time the lord of those servants cometh and reck-

oneth with them Then he which had received

the one talent came, and said. Lord, I knew thee that thou art an
hard man, reaping where thou hast not sown, and gathering where
thou hast not strawed : and I was afraid, and went and hid thy
talent in the earth : lo, there thou hast that is thine. His lord an-
swered and said unto him. Thou wicked and slothful servant, thou
knewest that I reap where I sowed not, and gather where I have
not strawed : thou oughtest therefore to have put my money to the
exchangers, and then at my coming I should have received mine

own with usury. (Jake tl)crefore tl]e talent from l)im, and give

it unto him which hath ten talents. For unto every one that hath
shall be given, and he sliall have abundance : but from him that
hath not, shall be taken away even that which he hath. QV.nb cast

lie tl)c unprofitable seryant into outer barkness : there shall

be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

He that believeth and is baptized, shall be saved ; but he that
believeth not, sl)all be bamneb.

Moses truly said unto the fathers, A prophet shall the Lord
your God raise up unto you, of your brethren, like unto me; him
shall ye hear in all things, whatsoever he shall say unto you. And
it shall come to pass, that every soul which will not hear that

prophet, sliall bc bestroticb from among tl)c people.



®l)c roratl) of ©ob is rcucalcb from l)caiicn against all

in unrighteousness.

God also Qiwe tl)cm np to unclcanncss, through the lusts

of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between them-
selves : who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and
served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed forever.

Amen. For this cause God gaue tl)cm np nnto uilc affections.

Knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such
things are tDortlllJ of bcatl).

Who will render to every man according to his deeds : to them
who by patient continuance in well-doing seek for glory and honour
and immortality, eternal life : but unto them that are contentious, and
do not obey the truth, but obey unrightousness, inbignation anb

mratl), tribulation anb anguisl), upon every soul of man that

doeth evil ; of the Jew first, and also of the Gentile ; . . . .

By one man sin entered into the world, auh beatl) bll sin;
anb 60 bcatl) passeb n^pon all men, for that all have snmed :
for until the law, sin was in the world : but sin is not imputed
when there is no law. Nevertheless, beatl) rcigncb from Qlbam

By one man's offence beatl) teigneb by one.
That as sin hath reigned nntO beatl), even so might grace
reign through righteousness unto eternal life.

What fruit had ye then in those things whereof ye are now
ashamed? for tl)e cnh of tllOSC tljiugs is beatl). But now being
made free from sin, and become servants to God, ye have your
fruit unto hoHness, and the end eoevlastiug life.

The wages of sin is beatl) : but the gift of God is eternal life,
through Jesus Christ our Lord.

When we were in the flesh, the motions of sins, M'hieh were by
the law, did work in our members to bring forth fruit uuto beatl).

The commandment which was ordained to life, I found to be
unto beatl). For sin, taking occasion by the commandment, de-
ceived me, and by it sleO) me. Wherefore the law is holy, and
the commandment holy, and just, and good. Was then that which
is good made death unto me ? God forbid. ]^ut sin, that it might
appear sin, roorkiug beatl) in me by that which is good ; that sin
by the commandment might become exceeding sinful.

To be carnally minded is beatl).

And if Christ be in you, tl)c bobt} is hcah becausc of siu;
but the Spirit is life because of righteousness.

We are debtors not to the flesh, to live after the flesh. For if

The earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the mani-

vanity, not willingly, but by reason of him who hath subjected the
