Temptations and Trespasses
(Matthew 18:6–9; Mark 9:42–48)

1He sayde vnto his disciples: It is vnpossible that offences shulde not come: but wo vnto him by whom they come: 2It were better for him, that a mylstone were hanged aboute his neck, and he cast in to the see, then that he shulde offende one of these litle ones. 3Take hede to youre selues. Yf thy brother trespace agaynst the, rebuke him: 4and yf he amende, forgeue him. And though he synne agaynst the seuen tymes in a daye, and come seuen tymes in a daye to ye agayne, and saye: It repenteth me, forgeue him.

The Power of Faith
(Matthew 17:19–20)

5And the Apostles sayde vnto ye LORDE: Increace oure faith. 6The LORDE sayde: Yf ye haue faith as a grayne of mustarde sede, and saye vnto this Molbery tre: Plucke thy self vp by the rotes, and plate thy self in the see, it shalbe obediet vnto you.

7Which of you is it, that hath a seruaunt (which ploweth, or fedeth the catell) wha he commeth home from ye felde, that he wil saye vnto him: Go quyckly, and syt the downe to meate? 8Is it not thus? that he sayeth vnto him: Make ready, that I maye suppe, gyrde vp thyself, and serue me, tyll I haue eaten and dronken, afterwarde shalt thou eate and drynke also. 9Thanketh he the same seruaunt also, because he dyd that was commaunded him? I trowe not. 10So likewyse ye, wha ye haue done all that is comaunded you, saye: We are vnprofitable seruauntes, we haue done that we were bounde to do.

The Ten Lepers
(2 Kings 5:1–14)

11And it fortuned, whan he toke his iourney towarde Ierusalem, he wente thorow the myddest of Samaria and Galile. 12And as he came in to a towne, there met him ten leporous men, which stode afarre of, 13and lift vp their voyce, and sayde: Iesu master, haue mercy vpon vs. 14And whan he sawe them, he sayde vnto the: Go, and shewe youre selues vnto ye prestes. And it came to passe, as they wente, they were clensed. 15And one of them wha he sawe that he was clensed, he turned backe agayne, and praysed God with loude voyce, 16and fell downe on his face at his fete, and gaue him thankes. And the same was a Samaritane. 17Iesus answered and saide: Are there not ten clensed? But where are those nyne? 18There were els none founde, that turned agayne, and gaue God the prayse, saue onely this strauger. 19And he sayde vnto him: Aryse, go thy waye, thy faith hath made ye whole.

The Coming of the Kingdom
(Genesis 19:24–29)

20But whan he was demaunded of ye Pharises: Whan cometh the kyngdome of God? He answered them, and sayde: The kyngdome of God commeth not with outwarde appearaunce, 21nether shal it be sayde: lo, here or there is it. For beholde, ye kyngdome of God is inwarde in you.

22And he sayde to the disciples: The tyme shal come, wha ye shal desyre to se one daye of the sonne of man, and shal not se it. 23And they shal saye vnto you: Se here, Se there. Go not ye, nether folowe, 24for as the lightenynge shyneth aboue from the heauen, and lighteth ouer all that is vnder the heaue, so shal the sonne of ma be in his daye. 25But first must he suffre many thinges, and be refused of this generacion. 26And as it came to passe in the tyme of Noe, so shal it come to passe also in ye dayes of the sonne of man. 27They ate, they dranke, they maried, and were maried, euen vnto ye daye that Noe wente in to the Arke, and ye floude came, and destroyed them all. 28Likewyse also as it came to passe in the tyme of Lot, they ate, they dranke, they bought, they solde, they planted, they buylded. 29But euen the same daye that Lot wente out of Sodom, it rayned fyre and brymstone from heaue, and destroyed them all. 30After this maner also shal it go, in the daye whan the sonne of man shal appeare. 31In that daye, who so is vpo the rofe, and his stuffe in ye house, let him not come downe to fetch it: Likewyse he that is in the felde, let him not turne backe, for it that is behynde him. 32Remebre Lottes wife. 33Who so euer goeth aboute to saue his life, shal lose it: and who so euer shal lose it, shal saue it. 34I saye vnto you: In yt night shal two lye vpon one bed, the one shalbe receaued, the other shalbe for saken. 35Two shalbe gryndinge together, the one shalbe receaued, the other shalbe forsaken. 36 37And they answered, and sayde vnto him: Where LORDE? He sayde vnto the: Where so euer ye deed carcase is there wil ye Aegles be gathered together.
