40-6:2††††† Therefore, when thou geuest thyne almes, thou shalt not make a trumpet to be blowen before thee, as hypocrites do, in the synagogues, & in the streates, yt they might be esteemed of me. Uerily I say vnto you, they haue their reward.

40-6:3††††† But when thou doest [thyne] almes, let not thy left hande knowe, what thy ryght hande doeth,

40-6:4††††† That thyne almes may be in secrete: And thy father, which seeth in secrete, shall rewarde thee openly.

40-6:5††††† And when thou prayest, thou shalt not be as the hypocrites are. For they loue to stande, praying in the synagogues, and in the corners of the streates, that they may be sene of men. Ueryly I say vnto you, they haue theyr rewarde.

40-6:6††††† But when thou prayest, enter into thy chaumber, and when thou hast shut thy dore, pray to thy father, which is in secrete, and thy father which seeth in secrete, shall rewarde thee openly.

40-6:7††††† But when ye pray, babble not much, as the heathen do. For they thynke [it wyl come to passe,] that they shalbe heard, for theyr much bablinges sake.

40-6:8††††† Be not ye therfore lyke vnto them. For your father knoweth, what thynges ye haue nede of, before ye aske of hym.

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

40-6:10†††† Let thy kyngdome come. Thy wyll be done, as well in earth, as it is in heauen.

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

40-6:22†††† The lyght of the body, is the eye. Wherfore, yf thyne eye be single, all thy body shalbe full of lyght.

40-6:23†††† But and yf thyne eye be wicked, all thy body shalbe ful of darknesse. Wherfore, yf the lyght that is in thee, be darknesse, howe great is that darknesse?

40-6:24†††† No man can serue two maisters. For either he shall hate the one, & loue the other: or els leane to the one, and dispise the other. Ye can not serue God, and mammon.

40-6:25†††† Therfore I say vnto you, be not carefull for your lyfe, what ye shall eate, or drynke: nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the lyfe more worth then meate? & the body then rayment?

40-6:26†††† Beholde the fowles of the ayre: For they sowe not, neither do they reape, nor cary into the barnes: yet your heauenly father feedeth them. Are ye not much better then they?

40-6:27†††† Which of you, by takyng of carefull thought, can adde one cubite vnto his stature?

40-6:28†††† And why care ye for rayment? Learne of the Lylies of the fielde, howe they growe. They weery not [them selues] with labour, neither [do they] spinne:

40-6:29†††† And yet I say vnto you, that euen Solomon in all his royaltie, was not arayed lyke one of these.

40-6:30†††† Wherfore, yf God so clothe the grasse of the fielde, which though it stande to day, is to morowe cast into the ouen: shall he not much more [do] the same for you, O ye of litle fayth?

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

40-6:32†††† (For after all these thynges, do the Gentiles seke:) for your heauenly father knoweth, that ye haue nede of all these thynges.

40-6:33†††† But rather, seke ye first the kyngdome of God, and his ryghteousnesse, and all these thynges shalbe ministred vnto you.

40-6:34†††† Care not then for the morowe: for the morowe shall care for it selfe. Sufficient vnto the day, is the euyll therof.

40-7:4††††† Or, howe sayest thou to thy brother: suffer me, I wyll plucke out a mote out of thyne eye: and beholde, a beame is in thyne owne eye?

40-7:5††††† Thou hypocrite, first caste out the beame out of thine owne eye: and then shalt thou see clearely, to plucke out the mote out of thy brothers eye.

40-7:6††††† Geue not that which is holy, vnto dogges, neyther caste ye your pearles before swyne, lest they treade them vnder their feete, and turning agayne, all to rent you.

40-7:7††††† Aske, and it shalbe geuen you: seke, and ye shall fynde: knocke, and it shalbe opened vnto you.

40-7:8††††† For he that asketh, receaueth: and he that seketh, fyndeth: and to hym that knocketh, it shalbe opened.

40-7:9††††† Is there any among you, which, yf his sonne aske hym bread, wyll geue hym a stone?

40-7:10†††† Or yf he aske fyshe, wyll he geue hym a serpent?

40-7:11†††† If ye then, beyng euyll, knowe to geue your chyldren good gyftes: howe much more shall your father, which is in heauen, geue good thynges, to them that aske hym?

40-7:13†††† Enter in at the strayte gate. For wyde is the gate, and brode is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in therat.

40-7:14†††† Because, strayte is the gate, and narowe is the way, which leadeth vnto lyfe, and fewe there be that fynde it.

40-7:15†††† Beware of false prophetes, which come to you in sheepes clothyng: but inwardly they are rauenyng woolfes.

40-7:16†††† Ye shall knowe them by theyr fruites, Do men gather grapes of thornes? or fygges of thystles?

40-7:17†††† Euen so, euery good tree, bryngeth foorth good fruite: But a corrupt tree, bryngeth foorth euyll fruite.

40-7:18†††† A good tree, can not bryng foorth bad fruite: neither can a bad tree, bryng foorth good fruite.

40-7:19†††† Euery tree that bryngeth not foorth good fruite, is hewen downe, and cast into the fyre.

40-7:20†††† Wherfore, by theyr fruites, ye shall knowe them.

40-7:21†††† Not euery one, that sayeth vnto me Lorde, Lorde, shall enter into the kyngdome of heauen: but he that doeth the wyll of my father, which is in heauen.

40-7:22†††† Many wyll say to me in that day, Lorde Lorde, haue we not prophesied thorowe thy name? and thorowe thy name haue cast out deuyls? & done many great workes thorowe thy name?

40-7:23†††† And then wyll I confesse vnto them, I neuer knewe you: Depart from me, ye that worke iniquitie.

40-7:24†††† Therfore, whosoeuer heareth of me these sayinges, and doeth the same, I wyll lyken hym vnto a wyse man, which buylt his house vpon a rocke:

40-7:25†††† And the rayne descended, and the fluddes came, and the wyndes blewe, and beat vpon that house, and it fell not, because it was grounded on a rocke.

40-7:26†††† And euery one that heareth of me these sayinges, and doeth them not, shalbe lykened vnto a foolyshe man, which buylt his house vpon the sande:

40-7:27†††† And the rayne descended, and the fluddes came, and the wyndes blewe, and beat vpon that house, and it fell, and great was the fall of it.

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

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