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.)
