Here beginneth the 11th chapter of Exodus.
Lord said unto Moses, Yet will I bring one plague upon Pharaoh, and upon Egypt; afterwards he will let you go hence: when he shall let go, he shall surely thrust you out hence altogether.And the
Speak now in the ears of the people, and let every man borrow of his neighbour, and every woman of her neighbour, jewels of silver, and jewels of gold.
Lord gave the people favour in the sight of the Egyptians. Moreover the man Moses very great in the land of Egypt, in the sight of Pharaoh's servants, and in the sight of the people.And the
Lord, About midnight will I go out into the midst of Egypt:And Moses said, Thus saith the
And all the firstborn in the land of Egypt shall die, from the firstborn of Pharaoh that sitteth upon his throne, even unto the firstborn of the maidservant that behind the mill; and all the firstborn of beasts.
And there shall be a great cry throughout all the land of Egypt, such as there was none like it, nor shall be like it any more.
Lord doth put a difference between the Egyptians and Israel.But against any of the children of Israel shall not a dog move his tongue, against man or beast: that ye may know how that the

Here beginneth the 13th chapter of 1 Corinthians.
Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity, I am become sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal.
And though I have prophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge; and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not charity, I am nothing.
And though I bestow all my goods to feed , and though I give my body to be burned, and have not charity, it profiteth me nothing.
Charity suffereth long, is kind; charity envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up,
Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil;
Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth;
Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things.
Charity never faileth: but whether prophecies, they shall fail; whether tongues, they shall cease; whether knowledge, it shall vanish away.
For we know in part, and we prophesy in part.
But when that which is perfect is come, then that which is in part shall be done away.
When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things.
For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.
And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these charity.
