A Tightech in candle, and
putteth it into a hidden place,
nor under a bushel ; but in a candlestick, that, they that come in, may see the light. The light of thy body is thy eye. If thy eye be single, thy whole body will be lightsome; but if it be evil, thy body also will be darksome. Take heed therefore, that the light, which is in thee, be not darkness. If then thy whole body be lightsorne, having no part of darkness; the whole shall be lightsome, and, as a bright lamp, shall enlighten thee.

of Christ, rejoice; that, when his glory shall be revealed, you may be transported with joy. If you be reproached for the name of Christ, you shall be happy : for that which is of the honour, glory, and power of God, and that which is his spirit, resteth upon you. But let none of you suffer as a murderer, or a thief, or a railer, or a coveter of other men's things. But if as a christian, let him not be ashamed; but let him glorify God in his name. For the time is come, that judgment should begin at the house of God. And if first with us ; what shall be the end of them, that believe not the Gospel of God? And if the righteous man shall scarce be saved; where shall the ungodly, and the sinner appear? Wherefore let them also, who suffer according to the will of God, commend their souls in good deeds to the faithful Creator.
