40-5:13†††† Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt haue lost his sauour, wherewith shall it be salted? It is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be troden vnder foote of men.

40-5:32†††† But I say vnto you, whosoeuer shall put away his wife (except it be for fornication) causeth her to commit adulterie: & whosoeuer shal marrie her that is diuorced, committeth adulterie.

40-5:35†††† Nor yet by the earth: for it is his footestoole: neither by Hierusalem: for it is the citie of the great King.

40-5:36†††† Neither shalt thou sweare by thine head, because thou canst not make one heare white or blacke.

40-5:37†††† But let your communication be Yea, yea: Nay, nay. For whatsoeuer is more then these, commeth of euill.

40-5:45†††† That ye may be the children of your father that is in heauen: for he maketh his sunne to arise on the euill, and the good, and sendeth raine on the iust, and vniust.

40-5:46†††† For if ye loue them, which loue you, what rewarde shall you haue? Doe not the Publicanes euen the same?

40-5:47†††† And if ye be friendly to your brethren onely, what singular thing doe ye? doe not euen the Publicanes likewise?

40-5:48†††† Ye shall therefore be perfit, as your Father which is in heauen, is perfite.

40-6:1††††† Take heede that ye giue not your almes before men, to be seene of them, or els ye shall haue no reward of your Father which is in heaue.

40-6:2††††† Therefore when thou giuest thine almes, thou shalt not make a trumpet to be blowen before thee, as the hypocrites doe in the Synagogues and in the streetes, to be praysed of men. Verely I say vnto you, they haue their rewarde.

40-6:3††††† But when thou doest thine almes, let not thy left hand knowe what thy right hand doeth,

40-6:4††††† That thine almes may be in secret, and thy Father that seeth in secret, hee will rewarde thee openly.

40-6:5††††† And when thou prayest, be not as the hypocrites: for they loue to stand, and pray in the Synagogues, and in the corners of the streetes, because they would be seene of men. Verely I say vnto you, they haue their rewarde.

40-6:6††††† But when thou prayest, enter into thy chamber and when thou hast shut thy doore, pray vnto thy Father which is in secret, and thy Father which seeth in secret, shall rewarde thee openly.

40-6:7††††† Also when ye pray, vse no vaine repetitions as the Heathen: for they thinke to be heard for their much babbling.

40-6:8††††† Be ye not like them therefore: for your Father knoweth whereof ye haue neede, before ye aske of him.

40-6:9††††† After this maner therefore pray ye, Our father which art in heauen, halowed be thy name.

40-6:10†††† Thy Kingdome come. Thy will be done euen in earth, as it is in heauen.

40-6:11†††† Giue vs this day our dayly bread.

40-6:12†††† And forgiue vs our dettes, as we also forgiue our detters.

40-6:13†††† And leade vs not into tentation, but deliuer vs from euill: for thine is the kingdome, and the power, and the glorie for euer. Amen.

40-6:14†††† For if ye doe forgiue men their trespasses, your heauenly Father will also forgiue you.

40-6:15†††† But if ye do not forgiue men their trespasses,, no more will your father forgiue you your trespaces.

40-6:16†††† Moreouer, when ye fast, looke not sowre as the hypocrites: for they disfigure their faces, that they might seeme vnto men to fast. Verely I say vnto you, that they haue their rewarde.

40-6:17†††† But when thou fastest, anoint thine head, and wash thy face,

40-6:18†††† That thou seeme not vnto men to fast, but vnto thy Father which is in secret: and thy Father which seeth in secret, will rewarde thee openly.

40-6:19†††† Lay not vp treasures for your selues vpon the earth, where the mothe & canker corrupt, and where theeues digge through and steale.

40-6:20†††† But lay vp treasures for your selues in heauen, where neither the mothe nor canker corrupteth, & where theeues neither digge through, nor steale.

40-6:21†††† For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.

40-6:22†††† The light of the body is the eye: if then thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be light.

40-6:23†††† But if thine eye be wicked, then all thy body shalbe darke. Wherefore if the light that is in thee, be darkenes, howe great is that darkenesse?

40-6:24†††† No man can serue two masters: for eyther he shall hate the one, and loue the other, or els he shall leane to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serue God and riches.

40-6:25†††† Therefore I say vnto you, be not carefull for your life, what ye shall eate, or what ye shall drinke: nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more worth then meate? and the bodie then raiment?

40-6:26†††† Behold the foules of the heauen: for they sowe not, neither reape, nor carie into the barnes: yet your heauenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better then they?

40-6:27†††† Which of you by taking care is able to adde one cubite vnto his stature?

40-6:28†††† And why care ye for raiment? Learne howe the lilies of the fielde doe growe: they are not wearied, neither spinne:

40-6:29†††† Yet I say vnto you, that euen Solomon in all his glorie was not arayed like one of these.

40-6:30†††† Wherefore if God so clothe the grasse of the fielde which is to day, and to morowe is cast into the ouen, shall he not doe much more vnto you, O ye of litle faith?

40-6:31†††† Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eate? or what shall we drinke? or where with shall we be clothed?

40-6:32†††† (For after all these things seeke the Gentiles) for your heauenly Father knoweth, that ye haue neede of all these things.

40-6:33†††† But seeke ye first the kingdome of God, and his righteousnesse, and all these things shall be ministred vnto you.

40-6:34†††† Care not then for the morowe: for the morowe shall care for it selfe: the day hath ynough with his owne griefe.

40-7:1††††† Ivdge not, that ye be not iudged.

40-7:2††††† Eor with what iudgement ye iudge, ye shall be iudged, and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you againe.

40-7:3††††† And why seest thou the mote, that is in thy brothers eye, and perceiuest not the beame that is in thine owne eye?

40-7:4††††† Or howe sayest thou to thy brother, Suffer me to cast out the mote out of thine eye, and beholde, a beame is in thine owne eye?

40-7:5††††† Hypocrite, first cast out that beame out of thine owne eye, and then shalt thou see clearely to cast out the mote out of thy brothers eye.

40-7:6††††† Giue ye not that which is holy, to dogges, neither cast ye your pearles before swine, lest they treade them vnder their feete, and turning againe, all to rent you.

40-7:7††††† Aske, and it shall be giuen you: seeke, and ye shall finde: knocke, and it shall be opened vnto you.

40-7:8††††† For whosoeuer asketh, receiueth: and he, that seeketh, findeth: and to him that knocketh, it shall be opened.

40-7:9††††† For what man is there among you, which if his sonne aske him bread, woulde giue him a stone?

40-7:10†††† Or if he aske fish, wil he giue him a serpent?

40-7:11†††† If ye then, which are euill, can giue to your children good giftes, howe much more shall your Father which is in heauen, giue good thinges to them that aske him?

40-7:12†††† Therefore whatsoeuer ye woulde that men should doe to you, euen so doe ye to them: for this is the Lawe and the Prophets.

40-7:13†††† Enter in at the streight gate: for it is the wide gate, and broade way that leadeth to destruction: & many there be which goe in thereat,

40-7:14†††† Because the gate is streight, and the way narowe that leadeth vnto life, and fewe there be that finde it.

40-7:15†††† Beware of false prophets, which come to you, in sheepes clothing, but inwardly they are rauening wolues.

40-7:16†††† Ye shall know them by their fruites. Doe men gather grapes of thornes? or figges of thistles?

40-7:17†††† So euery good tree bringeth foorth good fruite, & a corrupt tree bringeth forth euill fruite.

40-7:18†††† A good tree can not bring forth euil fruite: neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruite.

40-7:19†††† Euery tree that bringeth not forth good fruite, is hewen downe, and cast into the fire.

40-7:21†††† Not euery one that sayeth vnto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdome of heauen, but he that doeth my Fathers will which is in heauen.

40-7:22†††† Many will say to me in that day, Lorde, Lorde, haue we not by thy Name prophecied? and by thy name cast out deuils? and by thy name done many great workes?

40-7:23†††† And then will I professe to them, I neuer knewe you: depart from me, ye that worke iniquitie.

40-7:24†††† Whosoeuer then heareth of mee these words, & doeth the same, I will liken him to a wise man, which hath builded his house on a rock:

40-7:25†††† And the raine fell, and the floods came, and the windes blewe, and beat vpon that house, and it fell not: for it was grounded on a rocke.

40-7:26†††† But whosoeuer heareth these my wordes, and doeth them not, shall be likened vnto a foolish man, which hath builded his house vpon the sand:

40-7:27†††† And the raine fell, and the floods came, and the windes blewe, and beat vpon that house, and it fell, and the fall thereof was great.

40-7:28†††† And it came to passe, when Iesus had ended these wordes, the people were astonied at his doctrine.

40-7:29†††† For he taught them as one hauing authoritie, and not as the Scribes.
