Song of Solomon 3:1-11
1. By night in my bed I sought him, whom my soul loveth: yea diligently sought I him, but I found him not.
2. I will get up (thought I) and go about the city, upon the market and in all the streets will I seek him whom my soul loveth: but when I sought him, I found him not.
3. The watchmen that go about the city found me. Saw ye not him whom my soul loveth?
4. So when I was a little past them, I found him whom my soul loveth. I have gotten hold upon him, and will not let him go, until I bring him into my mother's house, and in to her chamber that bare me.
5. I charge you, O ye daughters of Jerusalem, by the Roes, and Hinds of the field, that ye wake not up my love nor touche her, till she be content herself.
6. Who is this, that cometh out of the wilderness like pillars of smoke, as it were a smell of Myrre, frankincense and all manner spices of the Apothecary?
7. Behold, about Solomon's bedstead there stand sixty valiant men of the mighty in Israel.
8. They hold swords every one, and are expert in war. Every man hath his sword upon his thigh, because of fear in the night.
9. King Solomon hath made himself a bedstead of the wood of Libanus,
10. the pillars are of silver, the covering of gold, the seat of purple, the ground pleasantly paved for the daughters of Jerusalem.
11. Go forth (O ye daughters of Sion) and behold king Solomon in the crown, wherewith his mother crowned him in the day of his marriage, and in the day of the gladness of his heart.

Song of Solomon 4:1-16
1. O how fair art thou (my love) how fair art thou? thou hast doves' eyes, beside that which lieth hid within.
2. Thy hairy locks are like a flock of sheep that be clipped, which go first up from the washing place: where every one beareth two twins, and not one unfruitful among them.
3. Thy lips are like a rose coloured ribbon, thy words are lovely: thy cheeks are like a piece of a pomegranate, besides that which lyeth hid within.
4. Thy neck is like the tower of David builded with bulwarks, where upon there hang a thousand shields, yea all the weapons of the giants.
5. Thy two breasts are like two twins of young roes, which feed among the lilies.
6. O that I might go to the mountain of Myrre, and to the hill of frankincense: till the day break, and till the shadows be past away.
7. Thou art all fair, O my love, and no sport is there in thee.
8. Come to me from Libanus, O my spouse, and come to me from Liban: come soon the next way from the top of Amana, from the top of Sanir and Hermon, from the lions' dens, and from the mountains of the leopards.
9. Thou hast wounded my heart, O my sister, my spouse, thou hast wounded my heart, with one of thine eyes, and with one chain of thy neck.
10. O how fair and lovely are thy breasts, my sister, my spouse? Thy breasts are more pleasant than wine, and the smell of thine ointments passeth all spices.
11. Thy lips, O my spouse, drop as the honeycomb, yea milk and honey is under thy tongue, and the smell of thy garments is like the smell of frankincense.
12. Thou art a well kept garden, O my sister, my spouse, thou are a well kept watering spring, a sealed well.
13. The fruits that sprout in thee, are like a very Paradise of pomegranates with sweet fruits:
14. as Cypress, Nardus, Saffron, Calmus, and all the trees of Libanus: Myrre, Aloes, and all the best spices.
15. Thou art a well of gardens, a well of living waters, which run(renne) down from Libanus.
16. Up thou northwind, come thou southwind, and blow upon my garden, that the smell thereof may be carried on every side: yea that my beloved may come into my garden, and eat of the fruits and apples that grow therein.

Psalms 104:10-23
10. Thou causest the wells to spring up among the valleys, and the waters to run among the hills.
11. That all the beasts of the field may have drink, and that the wild asses may quench their thirst.
12. Above upon the hills have the fowls of the air their habitation, and sing among the branches.
13. Thou waterest the hills from above, the earth is filled with the fruits of thy works.
14. Thou bringest forth grass for the cattle, and green herbs for the service of men.
15. Thou bringest food out of the earth: wine to make glad the heart of man, oil to make him a cheerful countenance and bread to strengthen man's heart.
16. The trees of the LORD are full of sap, even the trees of Lebanus which he hath planted.
17. There make the birds their nests, and the fir hills(trees) are a dwelling for the stork.
18. The hills are a refuge for the wild goats, and so are the stony rocks for the conies.
19. Thou hast appointed the Moon for certain seasons, the sun(Sonne) knoweth his going down.
20. Thou makest darkness, that it may be night, wherein all the beasts of the forest do move.
21. Yea the young lions which roar after their prey, and seek their meat at God.
22. But when the sun(Sonne) ariseth, they get them away together, and lie them down in their dens.
23. Then goeth forth man to his work, and to till his land until the evening.

Proverbs 24:17-18
17. Rejoice not thou at the fall of thine enemy, and let not thine heart be glad when he stumbleth.
18. Lest the LORD when he seeth it, be angry, and turn his wrath from him unto thee.

1 Corinthians 12:1-31
1. In spiritual things brethren I would not have you ignorant.
2. Ye know that ye were gentiles,(Heithen) and went your ways unto dumb idols, even as ye were led.
3. Wherefore I declare unto you that no man speaking in(thorow) the spirit of God defieth Jesus. Also no man can say that Jesus is the Lord: but by the holy ghost.
4. There are diversities of gifts verily, yet but one spirit.
5. And there are differences of administrations, and yet but one Lord.
6. And there are divers manners of operations, and yet but one God, which worketh all things that are wrought in all creatures.
7. The gifts of the spirit are given to every man to profit the congregation.
8. To one(won) is given (thorow the spirit) the utterance of wisdom: to another is given the utterance of knowledge by(according to) the same spirit:
9. to another is given faith, by the same spirit. To another the gifts of healing, by the same spirit.
10. To another power to do miracles: To another prophecy; To another judgement of spirits;(judgement to discern spirits) To another divers tongues: To another the interpretation of tongues:
11. and these all worketh even the self same spirit, dividing to every man several gifts even as he will.(These all doth the same onely spirit work, and distributeth unto every man, according as he will)
12. For as the body is one, and hath many members, and(nevertheless) all the members of one body though they be many, yet are but one body: even so is Christ.
13. For in one spirit are we all baptised to make one body, whether we be jews or gentiles: whether we be bond or free, and have all drunk of one spirit.
14. For the body is not one member, but many.
15. If the foot say: I am not the hand, therefore I am not (a member) of the body: is he therefore not (a member) of the body?
16. and if the ear say I am not the eye: therefore I am not (a member) of the body: is he therefore not (a member) of the body?
17. if all the body were an eye: where were then the ear? if all were hearing: where were the(where then the) smelling?
18. But now hath God disposed(set) the members, every one of them(one severally) in the body, at his own pleasure.
19. If they were all one member: where were the body?
20. Now are there many members, yet but one body.
21. And the eye cannot say unto the hand: I have no need of thee: nor the head also to the feet: I have no need of you.
22. Yea rather a great deal those members of the body which seem to be most feeble, are most necessary.
23. And upon those members of that body which we think least honest, put we most honesty on. And our ungoodly(uncomely) parts(?later editions have:ungodly parties) have most beauty on.
24. For our honest members need it not: but God hath so disposed(measured) the body, and hath given most honour to that part which lacked,(member which had need)
25. lest there should be any strife in the body: but that the members should indifferently care for one another.
26. And if one member suffer all suffer with him: if one member be had in honour, all members be glad also.
27. Ye are the body of Christ, and members one of another.
28. And God hath also ordained in the congregation, first the apostles, secondarily prophets, thirdly teachers, then them that do(doers of) miracles, after that, the gifts of healing, helpers, governors, diversity of tongues.
29. Are all apostles? are all prophets? Are all teachers? are all doers of miracles?
30. have all the gifts of healing? Do all speak with tongues? do all interpret?
31. Covet after the best gifts. And yet shew I unto you a more excellent way.
