CRANMER—1539. But I saye vnto you whych heare: Loue youre enemyes. Do good to them which hate you. Blesse them that course you. And praye for them which wrongfullye trouble you. And vnto him that smyteth the on the one cheke, offer also the other. And him that taketh awaye thy gowne, forbyd not to take thy cote also. Geue to euery man that asketh of the. And of him that taketh awaye thy goodes, aske them not agayne. And as ye wolde that men shuld do to you, do

ye also to them lykewyse. And yf ye loue them which loue you, what thanke haue ye? For synners also loue their louers. And yf ye do good for them which do good for you, what thancke haue ye? For synners also do euen the same. And yf ye lende to them of whome ye hope to receaue: what thancke haue ye? for synners also lende to synners, to receaue soch like agayne. But loue ye youre enemyes, and do good, and lende, lokynge for nothinge agayne: and youre rewarde shalbe greate, and ye shalbe the chyldren of the hyest: for he is kynde vnto the vnkynde and to the euyll. Be ye

therfore mercyfull, as youre father also is mercyfull. Iudge not, and ye shall not be iudged. Condemne not: and ye shall not be condemned. Forgeue, and ye shalbe forgeuen. Geue, and it shalbe geuen vnto you: good measure and pressed doune, and shaken together and runnynge ouer, shall men geue into youre bosomes. For with the same measure that ye mete withall shall other men mete to you agayne.

GENEVA-1557. But I say vnto you which heare, Loue your enemies : do good to them which hate you. Blesse them that curse you: and pray for them which wrongfully trouble you. And vnto him that smyteth thee on the one cheke, offer also the other: aud him that taketh away thy cloke, forbyd not to take thy coate also. Geue to euery man that asketh of thee : and of hym that taketh away thy goodes, aske them not agayne.

And as ye would that men should do to you, so do ye to them lykewyse. And if ye loue them which loue you, what thank shal ye haue ? for the very sinners loue their louers. And if ye do good for them which do good for you, what thank are ye worthy of? for the very synners, do euen the same. And if ye lend to them of whome ye hope to receaue, what thank haue ye? for the very synners lend to synners, to receaue as much agayne. Wherefore, loue ye your ennemies, do good, and lend, lokyng for nothyng agayne: and your rewarde shalbe great, and ye shalbe the chyldren of the Hyest: for he is kynde vnto the vnkynde, and to the euyl.

Be ye therefore mercyful, as your father also is mercyful. Iudge not, and ye shal not be iudged: condemne not, and ye shal not be condemned : forgeue, and ye shalbe forgeuen. Geue, and it shalbe geuen vnto you: good measure, pressed doune, shaken together and runnyng ouer shal men geue into your bosomes. For with what measure ye meate, with tbe same shal men meate to you agayne.

RHEIMS-1582.

But to you I say that doe heare, Loue your enemies, doe good to them that hate you. Blesse them that curse you, and pray for them that calumniate you. And he that striketh thee on the cheeke offer also the other. And from him that taketh avvay from thee thy robe, prohibit not thy coate also. And to euery one that asketh thee, giue: and of him that taketh avvay the things that are thine, aske not againe. And according as you vvil that men doe to you, doe you also to them in like maner. And if you loue them that loue you,

vyhat thanke is to you? for sinners also loue those that loue them. And if ye doe good to them that doe you good : vvhat thanke is to you ? for sinners also doe this. And if ye lend to them of vvhom ye hope to receiue: vvhat thanke is to you? for sinners also lend vnto sinners, for to receive as much. But loue ye your enemies : doe good and lend, hoping for nothing thereby, and your revvard shall be much,

But I say vnto you which heare, Loue your enemies, doe good to them which hate you, Blesse them that curse you, and pray for them which despitefully vse you. And vnto him that smiteth thee on the one cheeke, offer also the other : and him that taketh away thy cloake, forbid not to take thy coat also.

OLD people love to talk about old times and old things; and, as far as I know, young people like to hear about them. Well do I remember when I was a boy sitting in my little chair and listening to tales, which my father and uncles would tell as they sat round the fire, about old times, forty years before. Oh! how long forty years seemed then.

Yes: I heard them talk about the times when the roads were very bad, so bad that no coaches ever passed over them. Now and then a ricketty post chaise would try, but often it got stuck fast in the mud, and they had to call for half-a-dozen men to come and help to lift it out of the decp ruts. Corn was sent to market on the backs of horses, and there was no bridge over the river-only an old ferry boat, which was often in danger, and was once upset, when my own father's grandfather, with many others, was drowned!

And my own lads are always glad when I will sit and tell them of things forty years ago, and the great changes I have seen since then. Well do I remember the wonderful im
