8 Then said Judah unto Onan, go in to thy brother's wife and marry her, and stir up seed unto thy brother. 9 And when Onan perceived that the seed should not be his: therefore when he went into his brother's wife, he spilled it on the ground, because he would not give seed unto his brother. 10 And the thing which he did, displeased the LORD, wherefore he slew him also.

4 These are the generations of heaven and earth when they were created, in the time when the LORD God created heaven and earth 5 and all the shrubs of the field before they were in the earth. And all the herbs of the field before they sprang: for the LORD God had yet sent no rain upon the earth, neither was there yet any man to till the earth. 6 But there arose a mist out of the ground and watered all the face of the earth. 7 Then the LORD God shope man, even of the mold of the earth, and breathed into his face the breath of life. So man was made a living soul. 8 The LORD God also planted a garden in Eden from the beginning, and there he set man whom he had formed. 9 And the LORD God made to spring out of the earth, all manner trees beautiful to the sight and pleasant to eat; and the tree of life in the midst of the garden, and also the tree of knowledge of good and evil. 10 And there sprung a river out of Eden to water the garden, and thence divided itself, and grew into four principal waters. 11 The name of the one is Pishon; he it is that compasseth all the land of Havilah, where gold groweth. 12 And the gold of that country is precious; there is found bdellium and a stone called Onyx. 13 The name of the second river is Gihon, which compasseth all the land of Cush. 14 And the name of the third river is Hiddekel, which runneth on the east side of the Assyrians; And the fourth river is Euphrates. 15 And the LORD God took Adam and put him in the garden of Eden, to dress it and to keep it. 16 And the LORD God commanded Adam, saying, "Of all the trees of the garden see thou eat: 17 But of the tree of knowledge of good and bad see that thou eat not: For even the same day thou eatest of it, thou shalt surely die. 18 And the LORD God said, "It is not good that man should be alone. I will make him a helper to bear him company." 19 And after that the LORD God had made of the earth all manner beasts of the field, and all manner fowls of the air, he brought them unto Adam to see what he would call them. And as Adam called all manner living beasts: even so are their names. 20 And Adam gave names unto all manner cattle, and unto the fowls of the air, and unto all manner beasts of the field. But there was no help found unto Adam to bear him company. 21 Then the LORD God cast a slumber on Adam, and he slept. And then he took out one of his ribs, and in stead thereof he filled up the place with flesh. 22 And the LORD God made of the rib which he took out of Adam, a woman, and brought her unto Adam. 23 Then said Adam, "This is once bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh. This shall be called woman: because she was taken of the man." 24 For this cause shall a man leave father and mother and cleave unto his wife, and they shall be one flesh. 25 And they were either of them naked, both Adam and his wife, and were not ashamed.
1 But the serpent was subtler than all the beasts of the field which the LORD God had made; and said unto the woman, "Ah sir, that God hath said, ye shall not eat of all manner trees in the garden." 2 And the woman said unto the serpent, "Of the fruit of the trees in the garden we may eat, 3 but of the fruit of the tree that is in the midst of the garden, said God, see that ye eat not, and see that ye touch it not: lest ye die." 4 Then said the serpent unto the woman, "Tush, ye shall not die: 5 but God doth know, that whensoever ye should eat of it, your eyes should be opened and ye should be as God and know both good and evil." 6 And the woman saw that it was a good tree to eat of, and lusty unto the eyes, and a pleasant tree for to make wise. And took of the fruit of it and ate, and gave unto her husband also with her, and he ate. 7 And the eyes of both them were opened, that they understood how that they were naked. Then they sewed fig leaves together and made them aprons. 8 And they heard the voice of the LORD God as he walked in the garden in the cool of the day. And Adam hid himself and his wife also from the face of the LORD God, among the trees of the garden. 9 And the LORD God called Adam and said unto him, "Where art thou?" 10 And he answered, "Thy voice I heard in the garden, but I was afraid because I was naked, and therefore hid myself." 11 And he said, "Who told thee that thou wast naked? Hast thou eaten of the tree, of which I bade thee that thou shouldest not eat?" 12 And Adam answered, "The woman which thou gavest to bear me company, she took me of the tree, and I ate." 13 And the LORD God said unto the woman, "Wherefore didst thou so?" And the woman answered, "The serpent deceived me and I ate." 14 And the LORD God said unto the serpent, "Because thou hast so done, most cursed be thou of all cattle and of all beasts of the field. Upon thy belly shalt thou go, and earth shalt thou eat all days of thy life. 15 Moreover, I will put hatred between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed. And that seed shall tread thee on the head, and thou shalt tread it on the heel." 16 And unto the woman he said, "I will surely increase thy sorrow and make thee oft with child, and with pain shalt thou be delivered: And thy lusts shall pertain unto thy husband and he shall rule thee." 17 And unto Adam he said, "Forasmuch as thou hast obeyed the voice of thy wife, and hast eaten of the tree of which I commanded thee, saying 'See thou eat not thereof' cursed be the earth for thy sake. In sorrow shalt thou eat thereof all days of thy life: 18 and it shall bear thorns and thistles unto thee. And thou shalt eat the herbs of the field: 19 In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, until thou return unto the earth whence thou wast taken: for earth thou art, and unto earth shalt thou return." 20 And Adam called his wife Eve, because she was the mother of all that liveth. 21 And the LORD God made Adam and his wife garments of skins, and put them on them. 22 And the LORD God said, "Lo, Adam is become as it were one of us, in knowledge of good and evil. But now lest he stretch forth his hand and take also of the tree of life and eat and live ever -" 23 and the LORD God cast him out of the garden of Eden, to till the earth whence he was taken. 24 And he cast Adam out, and set at the entering of the garden Eden, Cherubim with a naked sword moving in and out, to keep the way to the tree of life.
1 And it fortuned at that time that Judah went from his brethren and gat him to a man called Hirah of Adullam, 2 and there he saw the daughter of a man called Shua, a Canaanite. And he took her and went in unto her. 3 And she conceived and bare a son and called his name Er. 4 And she conceived again and bare a son and called him Onan. 5 And she conceived the third time and bare a son, whom she called Shelah: and he was at Chezib when she bare him. 6 And Judah gave Er, his eldest son, a wife whose name was Tamar. 7 But this Er, Judah's eldest son, was wicked in the sight of the LORD; wherefore the LORD slew him. 8 Then said Judah unto Onan, go in to thy brother's wife and marry her, and stir up seed unto thy brother. 9 And when Onan perceived that the seed should not be his: therefore when he went into his brother's wife, he spilled it on the ground, because he would not give seed unto his brother. 10 And the thing which he did, displeased the LORD, wherefore he slew him also. 11 Then said Judah to Tamar his daughter-in-law, "Remain a widow at thy father's house, till Shelah my son be grown." For he feared lest he should have died also, as his brethren did. Thus went Tamar and dwelt in her father's house. 12 And in process of time, the daughter of Shuah Judah's wife died. Then Judah, when he had left mourning, went unto his sheep shearers to Timnath with his friend Hirah of Adullam. 13 And one told Tamar, saying, "Behold, thy father-in-law goeth up to Timnath, to shear his sheep." 14 And she put her widow's garments off from her and covered her with a cloak, and disguised herself: And sat her down at the entering of Enaim which is by the high way's side to Timnath, for because she saw that Shelah was grown, and she was not given unto him to wife. 15 When Judah saw her, he thought it had been an whore, because she had covered her face. 16 And turned to her unto the way and said, "Come, I pray thee, let me lie with thee." For he knew not that it was his daughter-in-law. And she said, "What wilt thou give me, for to lie with me?" 17 Then said he, "I will send thee a kid from the flock." She answered, "Then give me a pledge till thou send it." 18 Then said he, "What pledge shall I give thee?" And she said, "Thy signet, thy necklace, and thy staff that is in thy hand." And he gave it her and lay by her, and she was with child by him. 19 And she gat her up and went and put her mantle from her, and put on her widow's raiment again. 20 And Judah sent the kid by his neighbour of Adullam, for to fetch out his pledge again from the woman. But he found her not. 21 Then asked he the men of the same place saying, "Where is the whore that sat at Enaim in the way?" And they said, "There was no whore here." 22 And he came to Judah again, saying, "I cannot find her, and also the men of the place said that there was no whore there." 23 And Judah said, "Let her take it to her, lest we be shamed: for I sent the kid and thou couldest not find her." 24 And it came to pass that after three months, one told Judah, saying, "Tamar thy daughter-in-law hath played the whore, and with playing the whore is become great with child." And Judah said, "Bring her forth and let her be burnt." 25 And when they brought her forth, she sent to her father-in-law saying, "By the man unto whom these things pertain, am I with child." And said also, "Look whose are this seal, necklace, and staff." 26 And Judah knew them, saying, "She is more righteous than I, because I gave her not to Shelah my son." But he lay with her no more. 27 When time was come that she should be delivered, behold there was two twins in her womb. 28 And as she travailed, the one put out his hand and the midwife took and bound a red thread about it, saying, "This will come out first." 29 But he plucked his hand back again, and his brother came out. And she said, "Wherefore hast thou rent a rent upon thee?" And called him Perez. 30 And afterward came out his brother that had the red thread about his hand, which was called Zerah.
9 And they said unto him, "Where is Sara, thy wife?" And he said, "In the tent." 10 And he said, "I will come again unto thee as soon as the fruit can live. And lo, Sara thy wife shall have a son." That heard Sara, out of the tent door which was behind his back. 11 Abraham and Sara were both old and well stricken in age, and it ceased to be with Sara after the manner as it is with wives. 12 And Sara laughed in herself saying, "Now I am waxed old, shall I give myself to lust, and my lord old also?" 13 Then said the LORD unto Abraham, "Wherefore doth Sara laugh saying, 'shall I of a surety bear a child, now when I am old?' 14 Is the thing too hard for the LORD to do? In the time appointed will I return unto thee, as soon as the fruit can have life. And Sara shall have a son." 15 Then Sara denied it, saying, "I laughed not." For she was afraid. But he said, "Yes, thou laughtest." 16 Then the men stood up from thence and looked toward Sodom. And Abraham went with them to bring them on the way.
8 Then said Judah unto Onan, go in to thy brother's wife and marry her, and stir up seed unto thy brother.
19 When a woman's natural course of blood runneth, she shall be put apart seven days: and whosoever toucheth her shall be unclean unto the evening. 20 And all that she lieth or sitteth upon as long as she is put apart shall be unclean. 21 And whosoever toucheth her couch shall wash his clothes and bathe himself with water and be unclean unto the evening. 22 And whosoever toucheth anything that she sat upon, shall wash his clothes and wash himself also in water, and be unclean unto the even: 23 so that whether he touch her couch or anything whereon she hath sitten, he shall be unclean unto the evening.

2 "Speak unto the children of Israel, and say, 'When a woman hath conceived and hath borne a manchild, she shall be unclean seven days: even in like manner as when she is put apart in time of her natural disease. 3 And in the eighth day the flesh of the child's foreskin shall be cut away. 4 And she shall continue in the blood of her purifying thirty three days, she shall touch no hallowed thing nor come in to the sanctuary, until the time of her purifying be out. 5 If she bear a maidchild, then she shall be unclean two weeks, as when she hath her natural disease. And she shall continue in the blood of her purifying sixty six days.
9 "'Whosoever curseth his father or mother, shall die for it, his blood on his head, because he hath cursed his father or mother.
11 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying, 12 "Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, 'If any man's wife go aside and trespass against him, 13 so that another man lie with her, fleshly; and the thing be hid from the eyes of her husband and is not come to light that she is defiled — for there is no witness against her, inasmuch as she was not taken with the manner - 14 and the spirit of jealousy cometh upon him and he is jealous over his wife, and she defiled; or haply the spirit of jealousy cometh upon him, and he is jealous over his wife and she yet undefiled. 15 Then let her husband bring her unto the priest and bring an offering for her: the tenth part of an ephah of barley meal, but shall pour none oil thereunto, nor put frankincense thereon: for it is an offering of jealousy, and an offering that maketh remembrance of sin. 16 "'And let the priest bring her and set her before the LORD, 17 and let him take holy water in an earthen vessel and of the dust that is in the floor of the habitation, and put it into the water. 18 And the priest shall set the wife before the LORD and uncover her head, and put the memorial of the offering in her hands which is the jealousy offering, and the priest shall have bitter and cursing water in his hand, and he shall conjure her and shall say unto her: 19 If no man have lain with thee, neither hast gone aside and defiled thyself behind thy husband, then have thou no harm of this bitter, cursing water. 20 But and if thou hast gone aside behind thine husband and art defiled and some other man hath lain with thee, beside thine husband - 21 and let the priest conjure her with the conjuration of the curse, and say unto her: the LORD make thee a curse and a conjuration among thy people: so that the LORD make thy thigh rot, and thy womb to burst, 22 and this bitter cursing water go into the bowels of thee, that thy womb burst and thy thigh rot. And the wife shall say: Amen, Amen. 23 "'And the priest shall write this curse in a bill and wash it out in the bitter water. 24 And when the cursing water is in her that it is bitter, 25 then let the priest take the jealousy offering out of the wife's hand, and wave it before the LORD, and bring it unto the altar: 26 and he shall take a handful of the memorial offering and burn it upon the altar, and then make her drink the water. 27 And when he hath made her drink the water, if she be defiled and have trespassed against her husband, then shall the cursing water go into her and be so bitter, that her womb shall burst and her thigh shall rot, and she shall be a curse among her people. 28 And if she be not defiled but is clean, then she shall have no harm, but that she may conceive. 29 This is the law of jealousy, when a wife goeth aside behind her husband and is defiled, 30 or when the spirit of jealousy cometh upon a man, so that he is jealous over his wife: then he shall bring her before the LORD, and the priest shall minister all this law unto her, 31 and the man shall be guiltless, and the wife shall bear her sin."
1 And the daughters of Zelophehad, the son of Heber the son of Gilead, the son of Machir the son of Manasseh, of the kindreds of Manasseh the son of Joseph — whose names were Mahlah, Noah, Hoglah, Milcah and Tirzah - 2 came and stood before Moses and Eleazar the priest and before the lords and all the multitude in the door of the tabernacle of witness, saying, 3 "Our father died in the wilderness, and was not among the company of them that gathered themselves together against the LORD in the congregation of Korah: But died in his own sin, and had no sons. 4 Wherefore should the name of our father's be taken away from among his kindred, because he had no son? Give unto us a possession among the brethren of our father." 5 And Moses brought their cause before the LORD. 6 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying, 7 "The daughters of Zelophehad speak right: thou shalt give them a possession to inherit among their father's brethren, and shalt turn the inheritance of their father unto them. 8 And speak unto the children of Israel saying, 'If a man die and have no son, ye shall turn his inheritance unto his daughter. 9 If he have no daughter, ye shall give his inheritance unto his brethren. 10 If he have no brethren, ye shall give his inheritance unto his father's brethren. 11 If he have no father's brethren, ye shall give his inheritance unto him that is next to him of his kindred, and let him possess it. And this shall be unto the children of Israel an ordinance, and a law, as the LORD hath commanded Moses.'"
2 If a man vow a vow unto the LORD or swear an oath and bind his soul, he shall not go back with his word: but shall fulfill all that proceedeth out of his mouth. 3 If a damsel vow a vow unto the LORD and bind herself, being in her father's house and unmarried: 4 If her father hear her vow and bond which she hath made upon her soul, and hold his peace thereto: then all her vows and bonds which she hath made upon her soul shall stand in effect. 5 But and if her father forbid her the same day that he heareth it, none of her vows nor bonds which she hath made upon her soul shall be of value, and the LORD shall forgive her, because her father forbade her. 6 If she had a husband when she vowed or pronounced ought out of her lips wherewith she bound her soul, 7 and her husband heard it and held his peace thereat the same day he heard it: Then her vows and her bonds wherewith she bound her soul, shall stand in effect. 8 But and if her husband forbade her the same day that he heard it, then hath he made her vow which she had upon her of none effect, and that also which she pronounced with her lips wherewith she bound her soul, and the LORD shall forgive her. 9 The vow of a widow and of her that is divorced, and all that they have bound their souls withal, shall stand in effect with them. 10 If she vowed in her husband's house or bound her soul with an oath, 11 and her husband heard it and held his peace and forbade her not: then all her vows and bonds wherewith she bound her soul, shall stand. 12 But if her husband disannulled them the same day that he heard them, then nothing that proceeded out of her lips in vows and bonds wherewith she bound her soul shall stand in effect: for her husband hath loosed them, and the LORD shall forgive her. 13 "All vows and oaths that bind to humble the soul, may her husband establish or break. 14 But if her husband hold his peace from one day unto another, then he establisheth all her vows and bonds which she had upon her, because he held his peace the same day that he heard them. 15 And if he afterward break them, he shall bear her sin himself."
22 If a man be found lying with a woman that hath a wedded husband, they shall die: both the man that lie with the wife, and also the wife. So shalt thou put away evil from Israel.
13 If a man take a wife, and when he hath lain with her hate her, 14 and lay shameful things unto her charge and bring up an evil name upon her and say, 'I took this wife, and when I came to her, I found her not a maid': 15 Then let the father of the damsel and the mother bring forth the tokens of the damsel's virginity, unto the elders of the city, even unto the gate. 16 And let the damsel's father say unto the elders, 'I gave my daughter unto this man to wife and he hateth her: 17 and lo, he layeth shameful things unto her charge saying: I found not thy daughter a maid. And yet these are the tokens of my daughter's virginity.' And let them spread the vesture before the elders of the city. 18 Then let the elders of that city take that man and chastise him, 19 and merce him in a hundred sicles of silver and give them unto the father of the damsel, because he hath brought up an evil name upon a maid in Israel. And she shall be his wife, and he may not put her away all his days. 20 But and if the thing be of a surety that the damsel be not found a virgin, 21 let them bring her unto the door of her father's house, and let the men of that city stone her with stones to death, because she hath wrought folly in Israel, to play the whore in her father's house. And so thou shalt put evil away from thee.
28 If a man find a maid that is not betrothed and take her and lie with her and be found: 29 Then the man that lay with her shall give unto the damsel's father fifty sicles of silver. And she shall be his wife, because he hath humbled her, and he may not put her away all his days. 30 No man shall take his father's wife, nor uncover his father's covering.
1 When a man hath taken a wife and married her, if she find no favour in his eyes, because he hath spied some uncleanness in her: Then let him write her a bill of divorcement and put it in her hand and send her out of his house. 2 If, when she is departed out of his house, she go and be another man's wife, 3 and the second husband hate her and write her a letter of divorcement and put it in her hand and send her out of his house, or if the second man die which took her to wife; 4 her first man which sent her away may not take her again to be his wife, inasmuch as she is defiled. For that is abomination in the sight of the LORD: that thou defile not the land with sin, which the LORD thy God giveth thee to inherit.
13 And David took him more concubines and wives out of Jerusalem, after he was come from Hebron, and more sons and daughters were yet born to David.
3 And he had seven hundred very Queens and three hundred concubines which turned always his heart.
20 A wise son maketh a glad father; but an indiscreet body shameth his mother.
1 A wise son will receive his father's warning; but he that is scornful, will not hear when he is reproved.
26 And I found, that a woman is bitterer than death: for she is a very angle, her heart is a net, and her hands are chains. Who so pleaseth God shall escape from her, but the sinner will be taken with her. 27 Behold - sayeth the preacher - this have I diligently searched out and proved, that I might come by knowledge: which as yet I seek, and find it not. 28 Among a thousand men I have found one, but not one woman among all.
4 Fear not, for thou shalt not be confounded. Be not ashamed, for thou shalt not come to confusion. Yea, thou shalt forget the shame of thy youth, and shalt not remember the dishonour of thy widowhood.
32 But I say unto you, Whosoever put away his wife, except it be for fornication, causeth her to break matrimony. And whosoever marryeth her that is divorced breaketh wedlock.
31 And then came his mother and his brethren, and stood without, and sent unto him and called him: 32 And the people sat about him, and said unto him, "Behold, thy mother and thy brethren seek for thee without." 33 And he answered them, saying, "Who is my mother, and my brethren?" 34 And he looked round about on his disciples, which sat in compass about him, and said, "Behold, my mother, and my brethren: 35 For whosoever doeth the will of God, he is my brother, my sister and mother."
26 "If a man come to me, and hate not his father and mother, and wife, and children, and brethren, and sisters, moreover and his own life, he cannot be my disciple.
20 My son, keep thy father's commandments, and forsake not the law of thy mother. 21 Put them up together in thine heart, and bind them about thy neck. 22 That they may lead thee where thou goest, preserve thee when thou art asleep, and that when thou awakest, thou mayest talk of them. 23 For the commandment is a lantern, and the law a light: yea, chastening and nurture is the way of life: 24 that they may keep thee from the evil woman, and from the flattering tongue of the harlot: 25 that thou lust not after her beauty in thine heart, and lest thou be taken with her fair looks. 26 A harlot will make a man to beg his bread, but a married woman will hunt for the precious life. 27 May a man take fire in his bosom, and his clothes not be burnt? 28 Or can one go upon hot coals, and his feet not be hurt? 29 Even so, whosoever goeth in to his neighbour's wife, and toucheth her, can not be unguilty. 30 Men do not utterly despise a thief, that stealeth to satisfy his soul, when he is hungry: 31 But if he may be gotten, he restoreth again seven times as much, or else he maketh recompense with all the goods of his house. 32 But whoso committeth adultery with a woman, he is a fool: and destroyeth his own soul. 33 He getteth himself also shame and dishonour, such as shall never be put out. 34 For the jealousy and wrath of the man will not be intreated; 35 no, though thou wouldest offer him great gifts to make amends, he will not receive them.
1 My son, keep my words, and lay up my commandments by thee. 2 Keep my commandments and my law, even as the apple of thine eye, and thou shalt live. 3 Bind them upon thy fingers, write them in the table of thine heart. 4 Say unto wisdom, "Thou art my sister," and call understanding thy kinswoman: 5 That she may keep thee from the strange woman, and from the harlot which giveth sweet words. 6 For out of the window of my house I looked through the trellis, 7 and beheld the simple people: and among other young folks I spied one young fool 8 going over the streets, by the corner, in the way toward the harlot's house; 9 in the twilight of the evening, when it began now to be night and dark. 10 And behold, there met him a woman with open tokens of a harlot. Only her heart was hid. 11 She was full of loud words and ready to dally: whose feet could not abide in the house. 12 Now is she without, now in the streets, and lurketh in every corner. 13 She caught the young man, kissed him, and was not ashamed, saying, 14 "I had a vow to pay, and this day I perform it. 15 Therefore came I forth to meet thee, that I might seek thy face, and so I have found thee. 16 I have decked my bed with coverings and clothes of Egypt. 17 My bed have I made to smell of Myrrh, Aloes, and Cinnamon. 18 Come, let us lie together, and take our pleasure till it be daylight. 19 For the goodman is not at home, he is gone far off. 20 He hath taken the bag of money with him: who can tell when he cometh home?" 21 Thus with many sweet words she overcame him, and with her flattering lips she enticed him 22 suddenly to follow her - as it were an ox to the slaughter, and like as it were a fool that laugheth when he goeth to the stocks to be punished - 23 so long till she hath wounded his liver with her dart: like as if a bird hasted to the snare, not knowing that the peril of his life lieth thereupon. 24 Hear me now therefore, O my son, and mark the words of my mouth. 25 Let not thine heart wander in her ways, and be thou not deceived in her paths. 26 For many a one hath she wounded and cast down, yea many a strong man hath she slain. 27 Her houses are the way to hell, where men go down into the chambers of death.
3 I would ye knew that Christ is the head of every man; and the man is the woman's head; and God is Christ's head. 4 Every man praying or prophesying having anything on his head, shameth his head. 5 Every woman that prayeth or prophesieth bare-headed, dishonesteth her head. For it is even all one and the very same thing, even as though she were shaven. 6 If the woman be not covered, let her also be shorn. If it be shame for a woman to be shaven or shorn, let her cover her head. 7 A man ought not to cover his head, forasmuch as he is the image and glory of God. The woman is the glory of the man. 8 For the man is not of the woman, but the woman of the man. 9 Neither was the man created for the woman's sake: but the woman for the man's sake. 10 For this cause ought the woman to have power on her head, for the angels' sakes.
24 And his daughter was Sheerah which built Bethhoron the nether and also the upper, and Uzzansheerah.
38 It fortuned as they went, that he entered into a certain town. And a certain woman named Martha, received him into her house. 39 And this woman had a sister called Mary, which sat at Jesus' feet, and heard his preaching: 40 And Martha was cumbered about much serving, and stood and said, "Master, dost thou not care, that my sister hath left me to minister alone? Bid her therefore, that she help me." 41 And Jesus answered, and said unto her, "Martha, Martha, thou carest, and are troubled, about many things: 42 verily one is needful. Mary hath chosen her that good part, which shall not be taken away from her."
