Wicked Prayer Book

(The). Printed 1686, octavo. The Fourteenth Sunday after Trinity reads:

“Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these: adultery, fornication, uncleanness, idolatry ... they who do these things shall inherit the kingdom of God.”

(Of course, “shall inherit” should be shall not inherit.)
