If therefore the light which is 8/ in thee be darkness, how great shall that darkness be. 8/ No man can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one, & love the other; or else he will hold to the one, & 9// dispise the other. Ye cannot serve God & mamon. 9// And again, I say unto you, go ye into the world & care not for the World; for the world will hate you, and will persecute you, and will turn you out of their Synegougs; nevertheless, ye shall go forth from house to house, teaching the people; and I will go before you; and your Heavenly Father will provide for you, whatsoever things ye need for food, & what you shall eat; & for raiment, what ye shall wear or put on.
