3:1 THis is a true sayinge: Yff a man covet the office of a bisshope/ he desyreth a good worke. THis is a true sayinge. Yf a mā covet ye office of a bysshope/ he desyreth a good worke. THis is a true sayinge: If a man couet the office of a Bysshope he desyreth a good worke. THis is a true sayēge: Yf a mā covet ye office of a Bisshoppe, he desyreth a good worke.

3:6 He maye not be a yonge man/ lest he swell and faule into the iudgement of the evyll speaker. He maye not be a yonge skoler/ lest he swell and faule into the iudgement of the evyll speaker.

And with out naye great is that mistery of godlines: God was shewed in the flesshe/ was iustified in the sprete/ was sene of angels/ was preached vnto the gentyls/ was beleved on in erth and receaved vp in glory. And without naye great is that mistery of godlines: God was shewed in the flesshe/ was iustified in the sprete/ was sene of angels/ was preached vnto the gentyls/ was beleued on in erth and receaued vp in glory. and without naye, greate is that mystery of godlynes. God was shewed in the flesh: was iustified in the sprete: was sene of angels: was preached vnto the Heythen: was beleued on in the worlde: was receaued vp in glory.
