Therefore if thou bring thy gift to the altar,and there remembrest that thy brother hath ought against thee; leave there thy gift before the altar, and go thy way, first be reconciled to thy brother, and then come and offer thy gift. Agree with thine adversary quickly, whileft thou art in the way with him ; lest at: any time the adversary deliver thee to the judge, and the judge deliver thee to the officer, and thou be cast into
prison. Verily I say unto thee, thou shalt by no means come out thence, till thou hast paid the uttermost farathing.

of members servants to uncleanness, and to iniquity, unto iniquity; even so now yield you members servants to righteousnessyunto holiness. For when ye were the fervants of fin, ye were free from righteousness. What fruit had ye then in thofe things, whereof ye are now ashamed? for the end of those things is death. But now being made free from fin, and become servants to God, ye have
your fruit unto holiness, and the end everlasting life. For the wages of sin is death: but the gift of God is eternal life,through Jesus Christ our Lord.

And he commanded the people to fit down on the ground: and he took the seven loaves, and gave thanks, and brake, and gave to his disciples to set before them; and they did let them before the people. And they had a few small fishes; and he blessed and commanded to set then also before them. So they did eat, and were filled: and they took up of the broken meat that was left, seven baskets.

For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear : but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba,Father.

And if children, then heirs: heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ: if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together.

that all our fathers were under the cloud,and all palfed through the sea; and were all baptized unto Moses, in the cloud, and in the fea; and did all eat the same Spiritual meat,and did all drink the same fpiritual drink: (for they drank of that spiritual rock that followed them, and that rock was Christ.) But with many of them God was not well pleased; for they were overIthrown in the wilderness. Now these things were our examples, to the intent we should not lust after evil i hings, as they also lufted. Neither be ye idolaters, as were some of them., as it is written, The people sat down to eat ard drink, and rcle up to play. Neither
commit fornication, as some of them committed, and fell in one day three and twenty thousand. Neither let us tempt Christ as some of them also tempted and were deltroyed of serpents. Neither murmure ye, as some of them also murmured, and were destroyed of the destroyer. Now all these things happened unto them for ensamples : and they are written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the world are come. Wherefore let him that thinketh he standeth,take heed lest he fall. There hath notemptation taken you, but such as is common to man : but God is faithful, who will not fuffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with thie temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.
The Gospel S. Luke 16.1., Esus said'unto his disciplės, There was a certain rich
man who had a steward, and the same was accufed unto him,, that he had wasted his goods. And he called him and said unto him,How is it that I hear this of thee? Give an account of thy stewardship; for thou mayest be no longer steward. Then the Iteward said within himself, What shall I do? for my lord taketh away from me the stewardship: I cannot dig, to beg Iam alhamed I am resolved what to do that when I am put out of the
stewardfhip, they may receive me into their houses.So he called every one of his lords debters unto him, and said unto the first, How much owest thou unto my lord ? And he said, An hundred measures of oyl. And he faid unto him, Take thy bill and sit down quickly and write fifty. Then said he to another; And how much owest thou? And he said, An hundred measures of wheat. And he said unto him, Take thy bill,and write fourscore. And the lord commended the unjust steward; because Le had done wisely: for the children of this world are
teir generation wiser then the children oflight. And unto you, Maké to your felves friends of the Mam
mon of unrighteousness, that when ye fail, they may receive you into everlasting habitations.

Jyou ignorant. Ye know that ye were Gentiles carried away unto these dumb idols, even as ye were led. Wherefore I give you to understand that no man speaking by the Spirit of God, calleth Jesus accursed; and that no man can say that Jesus is the Lord, but by the holy Ghost. Now there are diversities of gifts, but the same Spirit. And there are differences of administrations, but the same Lord. And there are diversities of operations, but it isthe same God, who worketh all in all. But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to every man to profit withalt. For to one is given by the Spirit the word of wisdom; to another the word of knowledge by the fame Spirit ; to another faith by the same Spirit; to a
