Ye Be Hallowed

I saw this stupid t-shirt recently,

Those who hate,shall hate henceforth

and after the initial ‘ha-ha’, I sayeth to myself, “This shall not be-eth, change is the destiny of man!”

Here’s the proof ( in old English)

Whether ye know not, that wicked men shall not wield the kingdom of God? Do not ye err; neither lechers, neither men that serve maumets [neither men serving to idols], neither adulterers, neither lechers against kind, neither they that do lechery with men,10 neither thieves, neither avaricious men [neither covetous men, or niggards], neither men full of drunkenness, neither cursers, neither raveners, shall wield the kingdom of God.

11 And ye were sometime these things [And these things ye were sometime]; but ye be washed, but ye be hallowed, but ye be justified in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, and in the Spirit of our God. 1 Corinthians 6:9-11 Wycliffe Bible (WYC)

And don’t forget that today

And just in case, that old English be confusing to ye, unto ye I present an approach of more modern lexicon.


9-10 Surely you know that the people who do wrong will not inherit God’s kingdom. Do not be fooled. Those who sin sexually, worship idols, take part in adultery, those who are male prostitutes, or men who have sexual relations with other men, those who steal, are greedy, get drunk, lie about others, or rob—these people will not inherit God’s kingdom.11In the past, some of you were like that, but you were washed clean. You were made holy, and you were made right with God in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and in the Spirit of our God. 1 Corinthians 6:9-11 New Century Version (NCV)
