Parenetical Epistle written by
the Reverend Father


Bishop of Lyons, to his Kinsman


Translated into English by Henry VAUGHAN, Silurist.

“Love not the World, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. . . They are of the world, therefore speak they of the world, and the world heareth them.”

1 John 2:15 and 4:5.

“If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you. . . If ye were of the world, the world would love his own, but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you. Remember the word that I said unto you, the Servant is not greater than the Lord: if they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you. If they have kept my saying, they will keep yours also.”

John 18:15, 19, and 20.

Originally printed for Humphrey Moseley at the Princes Armes, St. Paul’s

Churchyard, London, anno Domini 1654.
