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.
1 Bvt the serpent was sotyller then all the beastes of the felde (which ye LORDE God had made) and sayde vnto the woman: Yee, hath God sayde indede: Ye shall not eate of all maner trees in the garden? 2 Then sayde the woman vnto the serpent: We eate of the frute of the trees in the garden: 3 But as for the frute of the tre that is in the myddes of the garden, God hath sayde: Eate not ye of it, and touch it not, lest ye dye. 4 Then saide the serpent vnto the woman: Tush, ye shall not dye the death. 5 For God doth knowe, that in what daye so euer ye eate of it, youre eyes shalbe opened, and ye shalbe as God, and knowe both good and euell. 6 And the woman sawe that ye tre was good to eate of, and lustye vnto the eyes, and a pleasaunt tre to make wyse, and toke of the frute of it, and ate, and gaue vnto hir husbande also therof, and he ate. 7 Then were the eyes of them both opened, and they perceaued that they were naked, and sowed fygge leaues together, and made them apurns. 8 And they herde the voyce of the LORDE God, which walked in the garden in the coole of the daye. And Adam hyd him self with his wyfe, from the presence of ye LORDE God amonge the trees of the garden. 9 And ye LORDE God called Adam, and sayde vnto him: Where art thou? 10 And he saide: I herde thy voyce in the garden, and was afrayed, because I am naked, and therfore I hyd my self. 11 And he sayde: who tolde the, that thou art naked? Hast thou not eaten of the tre, wherof I commaunded the, yt thou shuldest not eate? 12 Then sayde Adam: The woman which thou gauest me (to beare me company) gaue me of the tre, and I ate. 13 And the LORDE God sayde vnto the woman: wherfore hast thou done this? The woman sayde: the serpent disceaued me so, that I ate. 14 Then sayde the LORDE God vnto the serpent: Because thou hast done this, cursed be thou aboue all catell and aboue all beastes of the felde. Vpon thy bely shalt thou go, & earth shalt thou eate all the dayes of thy life. 15 And I wyll put enemyte betwene the and the woman, and betwene yi sede and hir sede. The same shal treade downe thy heade, and thou shalt treade him on the hele. 16 And vnto the woman he sayde: I will increase thy sorow, whan thou art with childe: with payne shalt thou beare thy childre, and thy lust shal pertayne vnto yi husbande, and he shal rule the. 17 And vnto Adam he sayde: For so moch as thou hast herkened vnto the voyce of thy wyfe, and hast eaten of the tre, wherof I commaunded the, sayenge: thou shalt not eate of it. Cursed be ye earth for thy sake. With sorowe shalt thou eate therof, all the dayes of thy life. 18 Thornes and thistles shalt it beare vnto the, and thou shalt eate the herbes of the felde. 19 In the sweate of thy face shalt thou eate thy bred, tyll thou be turned agayne vnto earth, whece thou art take: for earth thou art, and vnto earth shalt thou be turned agayne. 20 And Adam called his wyfe Heua, because she is the mother of all lyuynge. 21 And the LORDE God made Adam & his wyfe garmentes of skynnes, & those he put on them. 22 And the LORDE God sayde: lo, Adam is become as it were one of vs, & knoweth good & euell. But now lest he stretch his hande, and take also of the tre of life, and eate, and lyue for euer. 23 Then the LORDE God put him out of the garden of Eden, to tyll ye earth, whece he was take. 24 And he cast Adam out. And before the garden of Eden he set Cherubes, and a naked fyrie swerde, to kepe ye waye vnto the tre of life.

And whe he had lyen with her, 3 she conceaued and bare a sonne, whom she called Er. 4 And she conceaued agayne, & bare a sonwho she called Ona. 5 She proceaded yet further, & bare a sonne, who she called Sela. And wha she had borne him, she left of bearinge. 6 And Iuda gaue his first sonne Er a wife, whose name was Thamar. 7 But he was wicked before the LORDE, therfore the LORDE slew him. 8 Then sayde Iuda vnto his sonne Onan: Go lie with thy brothers wife, and marye thyself with her, that thou mayest rayse vp sede vnto thy brother. 9 But when Onan knewe that the sede shulde not be his owne, whan he laye with his brothers wife, he let it fall vpon the earth and destroyed it, yt he shulde not geue sede vnto his brother. 10 This thinge that he dyd displeased the LORDE sore, and he slewe him also. 11 Then sayde Iudas vnto Thamar his sonnes wyfe. Remayne a wyddow in thy fathers house, tyll my sonne Sela be growne: for he thought: peraduenture he might dye also like as his brethren. So Thamar wente hir waye, and remained in hir fathers house. 12 Now wha many dayes were past, ye doughter of Sua Iudas wife dyed. And whan Iuda had left mournynge, he wente vp vnto Thimnath to clyppe his shepe with his shepherde Hyra of Odollam. 13 Then was it tolde Thamar: beholde, thy father in lawe goeth vp vnto Thimnath, to clyppe his shepe. 14 Then put she of ye wyddowes garmentes that she had vpon her, couered and dysgysed hir self, & sat hir downe without the porte by the waye syde towarde Thymnath. For she sawe that Sela was growne, and she was not geuen vnto him to wife. 15 Now whan Iuda sawe her, he thought it had bene an whoore, for she had couered hir face: 16 and he gat him to her in the waye, and saide: I praye the let me lye with the, for he knewe not that it was his doughter in lawe. She answered: What wilt thou geue me, that thou mayest lie with me? 17 He sayde: I wil sende the a kydd from the flocke. She answered: Geue me a pledge then, tyll thou sende it me. 18 He sayde: What pledge wilt thou that I geue the? She answered: Thy signet, and thy bracelet, and thy staff that thou hast in thy hade. Then he gaue it her, and laye with her, and she was with childe of him. 19 And she gat hir vp, and wente hir waye, and layed of hir cloke, and put on hir wyddowes garmetes agayne. 20 Iuda sent the kydd by his shepherde of Odolla, to fetch the pledge agayne from the woman, and he founde her not. 21 Then axed he the men of the same place, & sayde: Where is the whoore yt sat without in the waye? They answered: There hath no whoore bene here. 22 And he came agayne vnto Iuda, and saide: I haue not found her, morouer ye men of the same place saide: that there hath no whoore bene there. 23 Iuda sayde: Let her take it vnto her, lest we happly be shamed, for I haue sent the kydd, and thou hast not founde her. 24 After thre monethes it was tolde Iuda: Thamar thy doughter in lawe hath plaied the whoore: and beholde, by whordome is she gotten with childe. Iuda sayde: brynge her forth, that she maye be brent. 25 And whan she was brought forth, she sent vnto hir father in lawe, and sayde: By the man yt oweth these, am I wt childe. And she sayde: Knowest thou whose is this signet, this bracelet & this staff? 26 Iuda knewe the, & sayde: She is more righteous the I, for I gaue hir not my sonne Sela: But he laye nomore with her. 27 Whan the tyme came that she shulde be delyuered, there were two twyns founde in hir wombe. 28 And as she was now in trauelynge, the one put out his hande. Then the mydwife toke and boude a reed threde aboute it, and saide: This shal come out first. 29 But whan he pluckte in his hande agayne, his brother came forth. And she sayde: Wherfore is there a rent mayde for thy sake? And he was called Phares. 30 Afterwarde came his brother forth, which had ye reed threde aboute his hande, and he was called Zarah.

He answered: within in ye tent. 10 Then sayde he: aboute this tyme twolue moneth, (yf I lyue) I will come to the agayne, and Sara thy wyfe shal haue a sonne. And Sara herde that out of the tent dore, which was behynde his backe. 11 And Abraham and Sara were both olde, & well stryken in age: so that it wente nomore with Sara after ye maner of wemen: 12 therfore laughed she within hir self, and sayde: Now that I am olde & my lorde olde also, shal I yet geue my self to lust? 13 Then sayde ye LORDE vnto Abraham: Wherfore doth Sara laugh, and saye: Is this true in dede, that I shal beare, and yet am olde? 14 Shulde eny soch thinge be to harde for the LORDE? Aboute this tyme (yf I lyue) I wil come to the agayne, & Sara shal haue a sonne. 15 Then Sara denyed it, and sayde: I laughed not, for she was afrayed. But he sayde: It is not so, thou dyddest laughe. 16 Then the men stode vp from thence, and turned them towarde Sodome: and Abraham wente with them, to brynge them on their waye.

1 My sonne, kepe my wordes, & laye vp my comaundemetes by the. 2 Kepe my comaundemetes & my lawe, eue as the aple of thine eye, & thou shalt lyue. 3 Bynde them vpon thy fyngers, & wryte the in the table of thine hert. 4 Saye vnto wysdome: thou art my sister, and call vnderstondinge thy kynswoman: 5 that she maye kepe ye fro ye strauge woma, & fro ye harlot which geueth swete wordes. 6 For out of the wyndowe of my house I loked thorow the trelies, 7 & behelde the simple people: & amonge other yonge folkes I spyed one yonge foole 8 goinge ouer the stretes, by the corner in the waye towarde the harlottes house 9 in the twylight of of the euenynge, when it begane now to be night and darcke. 10 And beholde, there mett him a woma in an harlottes apparell 11 (a disceatfull, waton & an vnstedfast woma: whose fete coude not abyde in ye house, 12 now is she without, now i ye stretes, & lurketh i euery corner) 13 she caught ye yoge ma, kyssed him & was not ashamed, sayege: 14 I had a vowe to paye, & this daye I perfourme it. 15 Therfore came I forth to mete the, that I might seke thy face, and so I haue founde the. 16 I haue deckte my bed with coueringes & clothes of Egipte. 17 My bed haue I made to smell of Myrre, Aloes and Cynamom. 18 Come, let vs lye together, & take oure pleasure till it be daye light. 19 For the good man is not at home, he is gone farre of. 20 He hath taken the bagg of moneye with him, who can tell whe he cometh home? 21 Thus with many swete wordes she ouercame him, and with hir flateringe lippes she wanne him. 22 Immediatly he foloweth her, as it were an oxeled to the slaughter (and like as it were to the stockes, where fooles are punyshed) 23 so longe till she hath wounded his lyuer with hir darte: like as yf a byrde haisted to the snare, not knowinge that the parell of his life lyeth there vpo. 24 Heare me now therfore (o my sonne) and marcke the wordes of my mouth. 25 Let not thine herte wandre in hir wayes, & be not thou disceaued in hir pathes. 26 For many one hath she wouded and cast downe, yee many a stronge ma hath she slayne. 27 Hir house is the waye vnto hell, where men go downe to the chambers of death.
3 But I certifye you, that Christ is the heade of euery man. As for ye man, he is the heade of ye woman, but God is Christes heade. 4 Euery man that prayeth or prophecieth, and hath eny thinge on his heade, shameth his heade. 5 But euery woman that prayeth or prophecieth with vncouered heade, dishonesteth hir heade. For it is euen a lyke moch as yf she were shauen. 6 Yf the woma be not couered, let hir heer also be cut of. But yf it be vncomely for a woman to haue hir heer cut of or to be shauen, then let hir couer hir heade. 7 Neuertheles the man oughte not to couer his heade, for so moch as he is the ymage and glory of God: but the woma is the glory of the man. 8 For the man is not of the woman, but the woman of the man. 9 Nether was the man created for the womans sake, but the woma for the mans sake. 10 Therfore ought the woman to haue a power vpon hir heade, for the angels sakes.

38 It fortuned as they wete, that he entred in to a towne, where there was a woman named Martha, which receaued him in to hir house. 39 And she had a sister, called Mary, which sat hir downe at Iesus fete, and herkened vnto his worde. 40 But Martha made hirself moch to do, for to serue him. And she stepte vnto him, and sayde: LORDE, carest thou not, that my sister letteth me serue alone? Byd her therfore, that she helpe me. 41 But Iesus answered, and sayde vnto her: Martha Martha, thou takest thought, and combrest thy self aboute many thinges: 42 there is but one thinge nedefull. Mary hath chosen a good parte, which shal not be taken awaye from her.
