1 Thus was heaue and earth fynished with all their hoost, 2 and thus in the seuenth daye God ended his worke, which he had made, & rested in the seuenth daye from all his workes which he had made: 3 And blessed the seuenth daye, & sanctified it, because yt in it he rested from all his workes, which God created and made. 4 These are the generacions of heaue and earth whan they were created, in the tyme whan the LORDE God made heauen and earth: 5 before there was eny twygg vpon earth, and or euer there grew eny grene herbe vpon the felde. For the LORDE God had yet sent no rayne vpon ye earth, nether was there eny man to tylle the earth. 6 But there arose a myst from the earth, & watered all the londe. 7 And ye LORDE God shope man eue of the moulde of the earth, & brethed in to his face ye breth of life. And so was man made a lyuynge soule. 8 The LORDE God also planted a garde of pleasure in Eden, towarde ye east, and set man therin whom he had made. 9 And the LORDE God caused to sprynge out of the earth all maner trees, pleasaut to loke vpo, and good to eate: and the tre of life in the myddest of the garden, and the tre of knowlege of good and euell. 10 And out of Eden there wente a ryuer, to water the garden, and there deuyded it selfe into foure heade waters. 11 The first is called Phison, which renneth aboute all the londe of Heuyla. 12 And there is founde golde, (& the golde of that countre is precious,) and there is founde Bedellion, and the precious stone Onix. 13 The second water is called Gihon, which runneth aboute the whole londe of ye Morias. 14 The thirde water is called Hydeckell, which runneth towarde the east syde of ye Assirias. The fourth water is Euphrates. 15 And the LORDE God toke man, & set him in the pleasaunt garden of Eden, to dresse it & to kepe it. 16 And the LORDE God commaunded man, sayege: Thou shalt eate of all maner trees in ye garden: 17 But of ye tre of knowlege of good and euell, shalt thou not eate. For loke in what daye so euer thou eatest therof, thou shalt dye the death. 18 And the LORDE God sayde: It is not good yt ma shulde be alone. I wil make him an helpe, to beare him copany. 19 And whan God the LORDE had made of the earth all maner beastes of the felde, & all maner foules vnder the heaue, he brought them vnto man, to se what he wolde call the: For as ma called all maner of liuinge soules, so are their names. 20 And man gaue names vnto all maner catell, & vnto the foules vnder the heaue, and vnto all maner beastes of ye felde. But vnto man there was founde no helpe, to beare him company. 21 Then the LORDE God caused an herde slepe to fall vpon man, and he slepte. And he toke out one of his rybbes, and (in steade therof) he fylled vp ye place with flesh. 22 And the LORDE God made a woman, of ye rybbe that he toke out of man, and brought her vnto him. 23 Then sayde man: This is once bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh. She shalbe called woman, because she was take of man. 24 For this cause shal a man leaue father and mother, and cleue vnto his wife, & they two shalbe one flesh. 25 And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed.

4 but with rightousnesse shal he iudge the poore, and with holynes shal he refourme the symple of the worlde. He shal smyte ye worlde with ye staff of his mouth, & with ye breath of his mouth shal he slaye the wicked.
1 Like as snowe is not mete in sommer, ner rayne in haruest: euen so is worshipe vnsemely for a foole. 2 Like as ye byrde and the swalowe take their flight and fle here and there, so the curse that is geuen in vayne, shal not light vpon a man. 3 Vnto the horse belongeth a whyppe, to the Asse a brydle, and a rodde to the fooles backe. 4 Geue not the foole an answere after his foolishnesse, lest thou become like vnto him: 5 but make ye foole an answere to his foolishnesse, lest he be wyse in his owne coceate. 6 He is lame of his fete, yee droncken is he in vanite, that comitteth eny thinge to a foole. 7 Like as it is an vnsemely thige to haue legges & yet to halte, eue so is a parable in ye fooles mouth. 8 He yt setteth a foole in hye dignite, yt is eue as yf a man dyd cast a precious stone vpo ye galous. 9 A parable in a fooles mouth, is like a thorne yt pricketh a droncken man in ye hande. 10 A man of experience discerneth all thinges well, but whoso hyreth a foole, hyreth soch one as wyl take no hede. 11 Like as the dogg turneth agayne to his vomite, euen so a foole begynneth his foolishnesse agayne afresh. 12 Yf thou seyest a man yt is wyse in his owne conceate, there is more hope in a foole then in hi. 13 The slouthfull sayeth: there is a leoparde in ye waye, and a lyon in ye myddest of the stretes. 14 Like as the dore turneth aboute vpon the tresholde, euen so doth the slouthfull welter himself in his bedd. 15 The slouthfull body thrusteth his hode in to his bosome, and it greueth him to put it agayne to his mouth. 16 The slogarde thinketh him self wyser, then vij. men that sytt and teach. 17 Who so goeth by and medleth with other mens strife, he is like one yt taketh a dogg by ye eares. 18 Like as one shuteth deadly arowes and dartes out of a preuy place, euen so doth a dyssembler with his neghboure, 19 And then sayeth he: I dyd it but in sporte. 20 Where no wodd is, there the fyre goeth out: and where the bacbyter is taken awaye, there the strife ceaseth. 21 Coles kyndle heate, and wodd ye fyre: euen so doth a braulinge felowe stere vp variaunce. 22 A slaunderers wordes are like flatery, but they pearse ye inwarde partes of ye body. 23 Venymous lippes & a wicked herte, are like a potsherde couered wt syluer drosse. 24 An enemie dyssembleth with his lippes, and in the meane season he ymagineth myschefe: 25 but wha he speaketh fayre, beleue him not, for there are seuen abhominacios in his herte. 26 Who so kepeth euell will secretly to do hurte, his malyce shalbe shewed before the whole congregacion. 27 Who so dyggeth vp a pytt, shal fal therin: and he yt weltreth a stone, shal stomble vpon it hymselfe. 28 A dyssemblynge tonge hateth one that rebuketh him, and a flaterige mouth worketh myschefe.
5 Rightuousnesse shalbe the gyrdle of his loynes, treuth and faithfulnesse the gyrdinge vp of his raynes. 6 The shal ye wolfe dwel with the labe, and the leoparde shal lye downe by the gote. Bullokes, lyons and catel shal kepe company together, so that a litle childe shal dryue them forth. 7 The cowe and the Bere shal fede together, and their yongones shal lye together. The lyo shal eate strawe like the oxe, or the cowe. 8 The childe whyle he sucketh, shal haue a desyre to the serpentes nest, and whe he is weened, he shal put his hande in to the Cockatryce denne. 9 Noman shal do euel to another, no man shal destro another, in all the hill of my Sanctuary. For the earth shalbe ful of ye knowlege of ye LORDE, euen as though the water of the see flowed ouer the earth. 10 Then shal the Gentiles enquere after the rote of Iesse (which shalbe set vp for a token vnto the Gentiles) for his dwellinge shalbe glorious. 11 At the same tyme shal the LORDE take in honde agayne, to conquere ye remnaunt of his people (which are lefft alyue) From the Assirias, Egiptians, Arabians, Morians, Elamites, Caldeyes, Antiochias and Ilodes of the see. 12 And he shal set vp a toke amonge the Gentiles, and gather together ye dispersed of Israel, yee and the outcastes of Iuda from the foure corners of ye worlde.
21 Not all they that saye vnto me, LORDE LORDE, shall enter in to the kyngdome of heauen: but he that doth the will of my father which ys in heauen. 22 Many shall saye to me in that daye: LORDE, LORDE: haue we not prophecied in thy name? Haue we not cast out deuyls in thy name? Haue we not done many greate dedes in thy name? 23 And then will I knowlege vnto them: I neuer knewe you, Departe fro me, ye workers of iniquite.

11 put on the armor of God, that ye maye stonde stedfast agaynst the craftie assautes off the deuell. 12 For we wrestle not agaynst flesh and bloude, but agaynst rule, agaynst power namely, agaynst the rulers of the worlde, of the darknesse of this worlde, agaynst ye spretes of wickednes vnder the heauen. 13 For this cause take ye the armoure of God, yt ye maye be able to resiste in the euell daye, and stonde perfecte in all thinges. 14 Stonde therfore, and youre loynes gyrde aboute with the trueth, hauynge on the brest plate of righteousnes, 15 and shod vpo yor fete with the gospell of peace, that ye maye be prepared: 16 Aboue all thinges take holde of the shylde of faith, wherwith ye maye quenche all the fyrie dartes of the wicked. 17 And take the helmet of saluacion, & the swerde of the sprete, which is the worde of God. 18 And praye allwayes with all maner of prayer and supplicacion in the sprete, and watch there vnto with all instaunce and supplicacion for all sayntes

14 Like wyse as a certayne ma ready to take his iourney into a straunge countre, called his seruautes, and delyuered his goodes vnto the. 15 And vnto one he gaue fyue talentes, to another two, and to another one: vnto euery man after his abilyte, and straight waye departed. 16 Then he that had receaued the fyue talentes, wente and occupied with the same, and wanne other fyue talentes. 17 Likewyse he yt receaued two talentes, wane other two also. 18 But he that receaued ye one wente and dygged a pyt in the earth, and hyd his lordes money. 19 After a longe season the lorde of those seruauntes came, and rekened with them. 20 Then came he that had receaued fyue talentes, and brought other fyue talentes, and sayde: Syr, thou delyuerdst vnto me fyue talentes:Beholde, with them haue I wonne fyue taletes mo. 21 Then sayde his lorde vnto hi: wel thou good & faithfull seruaunt, thou hast bene faithfull ouer litle, I wil set the ouer moch: entre thou in to the ioye of thy lorde. 22 The came he also that had receaued two talentes, and sayde: Syr, thou delyuerdst vnto me two talentes: Beholde, I haue wonne two other taletes with the. 23 His lorde sayde vnto him: Wel thou good and faithfull seruaut, thou hast bene faithfull ouer litle, I wil set the ouer moch: entre thou in to the ioye of thy lorde. 24 Then he that had receaued the one talet, came and sayde: Syr, I knew that thou art an hard man: thou reapest where thou hast not sowen, and gatherest where thou hast not strowed, 25 and so I was afrayed, and wete and hyd thy talent in the earth: lo, there thou hast thine owne. 26 But his lorde answered, and sayde vnto him: Thou euell and slouthfull seruaunt, knewest thou that I reape where I sowed not, and gather where I strawed not? 27 Thou shuldest therfore haue had my money to the chaungers, and then at my commynge shulde I haue receaued myne owne with vauntage. 28 Therfore take the talent fro him, and geue it vnto him that hath ten talentes. 29 For who so hath, to him shalbe geuen, and he shal haue abundaunce. But who so hath not, fro him shalbe take awaye euen that he hath. 30 And cast the vnprofitable seruaunt in to vtter darcknes: there shalbe waylinge and gnasshinge of teth.

Wha wilt thou aryse out of thy slepe? 10 Yee slepe on still a litle, slober a litle, folde thine handes together yet a litle, that thou mayest slepe: 11 so shal pouerte come vnto the as one yt trauayleth by the waye, & necessite like a wapened man.
