1 As ther gadered together an innumerable multitude of people (in so moche that they trood one another) he began to saye vnto his disciples: Fyrst of all beware of the leve of the Pharises which is ypocrisy. 1 Meanwhile, when a crowd of many thousands had gathered, so that they were trampling on one another, Jesus began to speak first to his disciples, saying: "Be on your guard against the yeast of the Pharisees, which is hypocrisy.
2 For ther is no thinge covered that shall not be vncovered: nether hyd that shall not be knowen. 2 There is nothing concealed that will not be disclosed, or hidden that will not be made known.
3 For whatsoever ye have spoken in in darknes: that same shalbe hearde in light. And that which ye have spoken in the the eare eve in secret places shalbe preached even on the toppe of the housses. 3 What you have said in the dark will be heard in the daylight, and what you have whispered in the ear in the inner rooms will be proclaimed from the roofs.
4 I saye vnto you my fredes: Be not afrayde of them that kyll the body and after that have no moare that they can do. 4 "I tell you, my friends, do not be afraid of those who kill the body and after that can do no more.
5 But I will shewe you whom ye shall feare. Feare him which after he hath killed hath power to cast into hell. Ye I saye vnto you him feare. 5 But I will show you whom you should fear: Fear him who, after the killing of the body, has power to throw you into hell. Yes, I tell you, fear him.
6 Are not five sparowes bought for two farthinges? And yet not one of them is forgotten of God. 6 Are not five sparrows sold for two pennies ? Yet not one of them is forgotten by God.
7 Also even the very heres of youre heedes are nombred. Feare not therfore: ye are moare of value then many sparowes. 7 Indeed, the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Don't be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows.
8 I saye vnto you: Whosoever confesseth me before men eve him shall ye sonne of man confesse also before ye angels of God. 8 "I tell you, whoever acknowledges me before men, the Son of Man will also acknowledge him before the angels of God.

11 When they bringe you vnto the synagoges and vnto the rulers and officers take no thought how or what thinge ye shall answer or what ye shall speake. 11 "When you are brought before synagogues, rulers and authorities, do not worry about how you will defend yourselves or what you will say,
12 For the holy goost shall teache you in the same houre what ye ought to saye. 12 for the Holy Spirit will teach you at that time what you should say."
13 One of the company sayde vnto hym: Master byd my brother devide the enheritauce with me. 13 Someone in the crowd said to him, "Teacher, tell my brother to divide the inheritance with me."
14 And he sayde vnto him: Man who made me a iudge or a devider over you? 14 Jesus replied, "Man, who appointed me a judge or an arbiter between you?"
15 Wherfore he sayde vnto them: take hede and beware of covetousnes. For no mannes lyfe stondeth in the aboundaunce of the thinges which he possesseth. 15 Then he said to them, "Watch out! Be on your guard against all kinds of greed; a man's life does not consist in the abundance of his possessions."
16 And he put forth a similitude vnto them sayinge: The groude of a certayne riche ma brought forth frutes plenteously 16 And he told them this parable: "The ground of a certain rich man produced a good crop.
17 and he thought in himsilfe sayinge: what shall I do? because I have noo roume where to bestowe my frutes? 17 He thought to himself, 'What shall I do? I have no place to store my crops.'
18 And he sayde: This will I do. I will destroye my barnes and bilde greater and therin will I gadder all my frutes and my goodes: 18 "Then he said, 'This is what I'll do. I will tear down my barns and build bigger ones, and there I will store all my grain and my goods.
19 and I will saye to my soule: Soule thou hast moch goodes layde vp in stoore for many yeares take thyne ease: eate drinke and be mery. 19 And I'll say to myself, "You have plenty of good things laid up for many years. Take life easy; eat, drink and be merry." '
20 But God sayde vnto him: Thou fole this night will they fetche awaye thy soule agayne from the. Then whose shall thoose thinges be which thou hast provyded? 20 "But God said to him, 'You fool! This very night your life will be demanded from you. Then who will get what you have prepared for yourself ?'
21 So is it with him that gadereth ryches and is not ryche in God. 21 "This is how it will be with anyone who stores up things for himself but is not rich toward God."

24 Considre the ravens for they nether sowe nor repe which nether have stoorehousse ner barne and yet God fedeth them.

27 Considre the lylies how they growe: They laboure not: they spyn not: and yet I saye vnto you that Salomon in all this royalte was not clothed lyke to one of these. 27 "Consider how the lilies grow.

30 for all suche thinges the hethen people of the worlde seke for. Youre father knoweth that ye have nede of suche thinges. 30 For the pagan world runs after all such things, and your Father knows that you need them.

36 and ye youre selves lyke vnto men that wayte for their master when he will returne fro a weddinge: that assone as he cometh and knocketh they maye ope vnto him. 36 like men waiting for their master to return from a wedding banquet, so that when he comes and knocks they can immediately open the door for him.
37 Happy are those servauntes which the Lorde when he cometh shall fynde wakynge. Verely I saye vnto you he will gerdde him selfe about and make them sit doune to meate and walke by and minister vnto them. 37 It will be good for those servants whose master finds them watching when he comes. I tell you the truth, he will dress himself to serve, will have them recline at the table and will come and wait on them.
38 And yf he come in the seconde watche ye if he come in the thyrde watche and shall fynde them soo happy are those servauntes. 38 It will be good for those servants whose master finds them ready, even if he comes in the second or third watch of the night.
39 This vnderstonde that yf the good man of the housse knewe what houre ye these wolde come he wolde suerly watche: and not suffer his housse to be broken vp. 39 But understand this: If the owner of the house had known at what hour the thief was coming, he would not have let his house be broken into.
40 Be ye prepared therfore: for the sonne of man will come at an houre when ye thinke not. 40 You also must be ready, because the Son of Man will come at an hour when you do not expect him."
41 Then Peter sayde vnto him: Master tellest thou this similitude vnto vs or to all men? 41 Peter asked, "Lord, are you telling this parable to us, or to everyone?"

44 Of a trueth I saye vnto you: that he will make him ruler over all that he hath. 44 I tell you the truth, he will put him in charge of all his possessions.
45 But and yf the evyll servaunt shall saye in his hert: My master wyll differre his cominge and shall beginne to smyte the servauntes and maydens and to eate and drinke and to be dronken: 45 But suppose the servant says to himself, 'My master is taking a long time in coming,' and he then begins to beat the menservants and maidservants and to eat and drink and get drunk.
46 the Lorde of that servaunt will come in a daye when he thinketh not and at an houre when he is not ware and will devyde him and will geve him his rewarde with the vnbelevers. 46 The master of that servant will come on a day when he does not expect him and at an hour he is not aware of. He will cut him to pieces and assign him a place with the unbelievers.

And to whom men moche commyt the moare of him will they axe. 48 But the one who does not know and does things deserving punishment will be beaten with few blows. From everyone who has been given much, much will be demanded; and from the one who has been entrusted with much, much more will be asked.
