For what man is he that can know the counsel of God? or who can think what the will of the Lord is?
 For the thoughts of mortal men are miserable, and our devices are but uncertain.
 For the corruptible body presseth down the soul, and the earthy tabernacle weigheth down the mind that museth upon many things.
 And hardly do we guess aright at things that are upon earth, and with labour do we find the things that are before us: but the things that are in heaven who hath searched out?
 And thy counsel who hath known, except thou give wisdom, and send thy Holy Spirit from above?
 For so the ways of them which lived on the earth were reformed, and men were taught the things that are pleasing unto thee, and were saved through wisdom.
 She preserved the first formed father of the world, that was created alone, and brought him out of his fall,
 And gave him power to rule all things.
 Behold, I will send for many fishers, saith the LORD, and they shall fish them; and after will I send for many hunters, and they shall hunt them from every mountain, and from every hill, and out of the holes of the rocks.
 For mine eyes are upon all their ways: they are not hid from my face, neither is their iniquity hid from mine eyes.
 And first I will recompense their iniquity and their sin double; because they have defiled my land, they have filled mine inheritance with the carcases of their detestable and abominable things.
 O LORD, my strength, and my fortress, and my refuge in the day of affliction, the Gentiles shall come unto thee from the ends of the earth, and shall say, Surely our fathers have inherited lies, vanity, and things wherein there is no profit.
 And the angel of the Lord spake unto Philip, saying, Arise, and go toward the south unto the way that goeth down from Jerusalem unto Gaza, which is desert.
 And he arose and went: and, behold, a man of Ethiopia, an eunuch of great authority under Candace queen of the Ethiopians, who had the charge of all her treasure, and had come to Jerusalem for to worship,
 Was returning, and sitting in his chariot read Esaias the prophet.
 Then the Spirit said unto Philip, Go near, and join thyself to this chariot.
 And Philip ran thither to him, and heard him read the prophet Esaias, and said, Understandest thou what thou readest?
 And he said, How can I, except some man should guide me? And he desired Philip that he would come up and sit with him.
 The place of the scripture which he read was this, He was led as a sheep to the slaughter; and like a lamb dumb before his shearer, so opened he not his mouth:
 In his humiliation his judgment was taken away: and who shall declare his generation? for his life is taken from the earth.
 And the eunuch answered Philip, and said, I pray thee, of whom speaketh the prophet this? of himself, or of some other man?
 Then Philip opened his mouth, and began at the same scripture, and preached unto him Jesus.
 And as they went on their way, they came unto a certain water: and the eunuch said, See, here is water; what doth hinder me to be baptized?
 And Philip said, If thou believest with all thine heart, thou mayest. And he answered and said, I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God.
 And he commanded the chariot to stand still: and they went down both into the water, both Philip and the eunuch; and he baptized him.
 And when they were come up out of the water, the Spirit of the Lord caught away Philip, that the eunuch saw him no more: and he went on his way rejoicing.
 But Philip was found at Azotus: and passing through he preached in all the cities, till he came to Caesarea.
 Again the next day after John stood, and two of his disciples;
 And looking upon Jesus as he walked, he saith, Behold the Lamb of God!
 And the two disciples heard him speak, and they followed Jesus.
 Then Jesus turned, and saw them following, and saith unto them, What seek ye? They said unto him, Rabbi, (which is to say, being interpreted, Master,) where dwellest thou?
 He saith unto them, Come and see. They came and saw where he dwelt, and abode with him that day: for it was about the tenth hour.
 One of the two which heard John speak, and followed him, was Andrew, Simon Peter’s brother.
 He first findeth his own brother Simon, and saith unto him, We have found the Messias, which is, being interpreted, the Christ.
 And he brought him to Jesus. And when Jesus beheld him, he said, Thou art Simon the son of Jona: thou shalt be called Cephas, which is by interpretation, A stone.
 The day following Jesus would go forth into Galilee, and findeth Philip, and saith unto him, Follow me.
 Now Philip was of Bethsaida, the city of Andrew and Peter.
 Philip findeth Nathanael, and saith unto him, We have found him, of whom Moses in the law, and the prophets, did write, Jesus of Nazareth, the son of Joseph.
 And Nathanael said unto him, Can there any good thing come out of Nazareth? Philip saith unto him, Come and see.
 Jesus saw Nathanael coming to him, and saith of him, Behold an Israelite indeed, in whom is no guile!
 Nathanael saith unto him, Whence knowest thou me? Jesus answered and said unto him, Before that Philip called thee, when thou wast under the fig tree, I saw thee.
 Nathanael answered and saith unto him, Rabbi, thou art the Son of God; thou art the King of Israel.
 Jesus answered and said unto him, Because I said unto thee, I saw thee under the fig tree, believest thou? thou shalt see greater things than these.
 And he saith unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Hereafter ye shall see heaven open, and the angels of God ascending and descending upon the Son of man.
