Heirs of Grace

1Warne them to be subiect to rule & power, to obey magistrates, to be redie to euery good worke: 2To blaspheme no man, to be no fyghters, but gentle, shewyng all mekenesse vnto all men.

3For we our selues also were some tyme foolyshe, disobedient, deceaued, seruyng diuers lustes & voluptuousnes, lyuyng in maliciousnesse and enuie, full of hate, hatyng one another. 4But after that the kyndenesse and loue of our sauiour God to manwarde appeared, 5Not of workes which be in ryghteousnesse wrought, but accordyng to his mercie, he saued vs by the fountayne of regeneration and renuyng of the holy ghost, 6Which he shed on vs richlie through Iesus Christe our sauiour: 7That we iustified by his grace, should be made heyres accordyng to the hope of eternall lyfe. 8This is a faythfull saying: And of these thynges I wyll that thou confirme, that they which haue beleued in God, myght be carefull to shewe foorth good workes. These thynges are good and profitable vnto men.

Avoid Divisions
(Romans 16:17–20)

9But foolishe questions, and genealogies, and contentions, and striuinges about the lawe, auoyde: for they are vnprofitable and vayne. 10A man that is an aucthour of sectes, after the first and the seconde admonition, auoyde: 11Knowyng, that he that is such, is subuerted and sinneth, beyng dampned of hym selfe.

Final Remarks and Greetings

12When I shall sende Artemas vnto thee, or Tychicus, be diligent to come vnto me vnto Nicopolis: For I haue determined there to wynter. 13Bryng Zenas the lawyer, & Apollos, on their iourney diligently, that nothing be lackyng vnto them. 14And let ours also learne to excell in good workes to necessarie vses, that they be not vnfruitefull.

15All that are with me, salute thee. Greete them that loue vs in the fayth. Grace be with you all. Amen. Written from Nicopolis, (a citie) of Macedonia.
