foretold of these days. And if ye will receive <​*​> me I am Elias <​this verily this is Elias <​behold ​> I am the masiah​> <​it, verily he was the Elias,*​> which <​who​> was for to come <​and prepare all things.​>. He that hath ears to hear, let him hear. <​6/​> But whereunto shall I liken this generation? It is like unto children sitting in the markets, & calling unto their fellows, & saying, We have piped unto you, & ye have not danced; we have mourned for you, & ye have not lamented. For John came neither eating nor drinking, & they say, He hath a devil. The Son of man came eating & Drinking, & they Say, Behold a gluttenous man & a wine bibber, & <​a​> friend of publicans & Sinners. But I say unto you, wisdom is Just <​7/​> ified of her children. <​7/​> Then began he to upbraid the Cities wherein most of his mighty works were done; because they repented not. Wo. unto thee, Chorazin! wo. unto thee Bethsaida! <​for​> if the mighty works which were done in you, had been done in Tyre & Sidon, they would have repented long since in sackcloth & ashes. But I say unto you, it shall be more tolerable for Tyre & Sidon at the <​8/​> day of Judgement, than for you. <​8/​> & <​And​> thou, Capurneum, which art exhalted unto Heaven, shalt be brought down to Hell; for if the mighty works which <​which​> have been done in thee, had been done in Sidom <​Sodom​>, it would have beenained <​remained​> untill this day. But I say unto you, that it shall be more tolerable for the land of Sodom in the day of Judgement, <​9/​> then <​than​> for you <​thee​>. <​9/​> And at that time, there came a voice out of Heaven; & Jesus answered & said, I thank thee, Oh. Father, Lord of Heaven & Earth, because thou hast hid these things from the wise & prudent, and hast revealed them unto babes. Even so, father; <​for so​> it seemed good in thy <​10/​> sight! <​10/​> All things are delivered unto me of my father; and no man knoweth the father Son, but the father; neither knoweth any man the <​11/​> father, save the Son, & to whomsoever the Son will reveal himself, <​they shall see the father also.​> <​11/​> then spake Jesus, saying, Come unto me all you that labour & are heavy laden, & I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, & learn of me; for I am meek & lowly of <​in​> heart; & ye shall find rest unto your souls, for my yoke is easy & my burden is light.
Matthew, Chapter 12
Chapter XII Jesus teaches the Scribes & Pharisees. Restoreth <​Restores​> a withered hand, on the sabath day. &c
<​1/​> At that time Jesus went on the sabath day through the corn; & his Deciples were an hungered, & begin <​began​> to pluck the ears of corn, & to eat. But when the Pharicees saw them, they said unto him, Behold, thy Deciples do that which is not lawful to do upon the sabath day. But he said unto them, Have ye not said <​read​> what David [p. 21 (first numbering)]
foretold of these days. And if ye will receive * it, verily he was the Elias,* who was for to come and prepare all things.. He that hath ears to hear, let him hear. 6/ But whereunto shall I liken this generation? It is like unto children sitting in the markets, & calling unto their fellows, & saying, We have piped unto you, & ye have not danced; we have mourned for you, & ye have not lamented. For John came neither eating nor drinking, & they say, He hath a devil. The Son of man came eating & Drinking, & they Say, Behold a gluttenous man & a wine bibber, a friend of publicans & Sinners. But I say unto you, wisdom is Just 7/ ified of her children. 7/ Then began he to upbraid the Cities wherein most of his mighty works were done; because they repented not. Wo. unto thee, Chorazin! wo. unto thee Bethsaida! for if the mighty works which were done in you, had been done in Tyre & Sidon, they would have repented long since in sackcloth & ashes. But I say unto you, it shall be more tolerable for Tyre & Sidon at the 8/ day of Judgement, than for you. 8/ And thou, Capurneum, which art exhalted unto Heaven, shalt be brought down to Hell; for if the mighty works which have been done in thee, had been done in Sodom, it would have remained untill this day. But I say unto you, that it shall be more tolerable for the land of Sodom in the day of Judgement, 9/ than for thee. 9/ And at that time, there came a voice out of Heaven; & Jesus answered & said, I thank thee, Oh. Father, Lord of Heaven & Earth, because thou hast hid these things from the wise & prudent, and hast revealed them unto babes. Even so, father; for so it seemed good in thy 10/ sight! 10/ All things are delivered unto me of my father; and no man knoweth the Son, but the father; neither knoweth any man the 11/ father, save the Son, & to whom the Son will reveal himself, they shall see the father also. 11/ then spake Jesus, saying, Come unto me all you that labour & are heavy laden, & I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, & learn of me; for I am meek & lowly in heart; & ye shall find rest unto your souls, for my yoke is easy & my burden is light.
