THE GOSPEL ACCORDING TO
1:1: The book of the generation of Jesus Christ,
the son of David, the son of Abraham.
1:2: Abraham begat Isaac; and Isaac begat Jacob;
and Jacob begat Judas and his brethren;
1:3: And Judas begat Phares and Zara of Thamar; and
Phares begat Esrom; and Esrom begat Aram;
1:4: And Aram begat Aminadab; and Aminadab begat
Naasson; and Naasson begat Salmon;
1:5: And Salmon begat Booz of Rachab; and Booz begat
Obed of Ruth; and Obed begat Jesse;
1:6: And Jesse begat David the king; and David the
king begat Solomon of her that had been the wife of Urias;
1:7: And Solomon begat Roboam; and Roboam begat Abia;
and Abia begat Asa;
1:8: And Asa begat Josaphat; and Josaphat begat Joram;
and Joram begat Ozias;
1:9: And Ozias begat Joatham; and Joatham begat Achaz;
and Achaz begat Ezekias;
1:10: And Ezekias begat Manasses; and Manasses begat
Amon; and Amon begat Josias;
1:11: And Josias begat Jechonias and his brethren,
about the time they were carried away to Babylon:
1:12: And after they were brought to Babylon, Jechonias
begat Salathiel; and Salathiel begat Zorobabel;
1:13: And Zorobabel begat Abiud; and Abiud begat
Eliakim; and Eliakim begat Azor;
1:14: And Azor begat Sadoc; and Sadoc begat Achim;
and Achim begat Eliud;
1:15: And Eliud begat Eleazar; and Eleazar begat
Matthan; and Matthan begat Jacob;
1:16: And Jacob begat Joseph the husband of Mary,
of whom was born Jesus, who is called Christ.
1:17: So all the generations from Abraham to David
are fourteen generations; and from David until the carrying away
into Babylon are fourteen generations; and from the carrying away
into Babylon unto Christ are fourteen generations.
1:18: Now the birth of Jesus Christ was on this wise:
When as his mother Mary was espoused to Joseph, before they came
together, she was found with child of the Holy Ghost.
1:19: Then Joseph her husband, being a just man,
and not willing to make her a publick example, was minded to put
her away privily.
1:20: But while he thought on these things, behold,
the angel of the Lord appeared unto him in a dream, saying, Joseph,
thou son of David, fear not to take unto thee Mary thy wife: for
that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Ghost.
1:21: And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt
call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins.
1:22: Now all this was done, that it might be fulfilled
which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet, saying,
1:23: Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall
bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which
being interpreted is, God with us.
1:24: Then Joseph being raised from sleep did as
the angel of the Lord had bidden him, and took unto him his wife:
1:25: And knew her not till she had brought forth
her firstborn son: and he called his name JESUS.
2:1: Now when Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judaea
in the days of Herod the king, behold, there came wise men from
the east to Jerusalem,
2:2: Saying, Where is he that is born King of the
Jews? for we have seen his star in the east, and are come to worship
2:3: When Herod the king had heard these things,
he was troubled, and all Jerusalem with him.
2:4: And when he had gathered all the chief priests
and scribes of the people together, he demanded of them where
Christ should be born.
2:5: And they said unto him, In Bethlehem of Judaea:
for thus it is written by the prophet,
2:6: And thou Bethlehem, in the land of Juda, art
not the least among the princes of Juda: for out of thee shall
come a Governor, that shall rule my people Israel.
2:7: Then Herod, when he had privily called the wise
men, enquired of them diligently what time the star appeared.
2:8: And he sent them to Bethlehem, and said, Go
and search diligently for the young child; and when ye have found
him, bring me word again, that I may come and worship him also.
2:9: When they had heard the king, they departed;
and, lo, the star, which they saw in the east, went before them,
till it came and stood over where the young child was.
2:10: When they saw the star, they rejoiced with
exceeding great joy.
2:11: And when they were come into the house, they
saw the young child with Mary his mother, and fell down, and worshipped
him: and when they had opened their treasures, they presented
unto him gifts; gold, and frankincense, and myrrh.
2:12: And being warned of God in a dream that they
should not return to Herod, they departed into their own country
2:13: And when they were departed, behold, the angel
of the Lord appeareth to Joseph in a dream, saying, Arise, and
take the young child and his mother, and flee into Egypt, and
be thou there until I bring thee word: for Herod will seek the
young child to destroy him.
2:14: When he arose, he took the young child and
his mother by night, and departed into Egypt:
2:15: And was there until the death of Herod: that
it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet,
saying, Out of Egypt have I called my son.
2:16: Then Herod, when he saw that he was mocked
of the wise men, was exceeding wroth, and sent forth, and slew
all the children that were in Bethlehem, and in all the coasts
thereof, from two years old and under, according to the time which
he had diligently enquired of the wise men.
2:17: Then was fulfilled that which was spoken by
Jeremy the prophet, saying,
2:18: In Rama was there a voice heard, lamentation,
and weeping, and great mourning, Rachel weeping for her children,
and would not be comforted, because they are not.
2:19: But when Herod was dead, behold, an angel of
the Lord appeareth in a dream to Joseph in Egypt,
2:20: Saying, Arise, and take the young child and
his mother, and go into the land of Israel: for they are dead
which sought the young child's life.
2:21: And he arose, and took the young child and
his mother, and came into the land of Israel.
2:22: But when he heard that Archelaus did reign
in Judaea in the room of his father Herod, he was afraid to go
thither: notwithstanding, being warned of God in a dream, he turned
aside into the parts of Galilee:
2:23: And he came and dwelt in a city called Nazareth:
that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophets, He
shall be called a Nazarene.
3:1: In those days came John the Baptist, preaching
in the wilderness of Judaea,
3:2: And saying, Repent ye: for the kingdom of heaven
is at hand.
3:3: For this is he that was spoken of by the prophet
Esaias, saying, The voice of one crying in the wilderness, Prepare
ye the way of the Lord, make his paths straight.
3:4: And the same John had his raiment of camel's
hair, and a leathern girdle about his loins; and his meat was
locusts and wild honey.
3:5: Then went out to him Jerusalem, and all Judaea,
and all the region round about Jordan,
3:6: And were baptized of him in Jordan, confessing
3:7: But when he saw many of the Pharisees and Sadducees
come to his baptism, he said unto them, O generation of vipers,
who hath warned you to flee from the wrath to come?
3:8: Bring forth therefore fruits meet for repentance:
3:9: And think not to say within yourselves, We have
Abraham to our father: for I say unto you, that God is able of
these stones to raise up children unto Abraham.
3:10: And now also the axe is laid unto the root
of the trees: therefore every tree which bringeth not forth good
fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.
3:11: I indeed baptize you with water unto repentance:
but he that cometh after me is mightier than I, whose shoes I
am not worthy to bear: he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost,
and with fire:
3:12: Whose fan is in his hand, and he will throughly
purge his floor, and gather his wheat into the garner; but he
will burn up the chaff with unquenchable fire.
3:13: Then cometh Jesus from Galilee to Jordan unto
John, to be baptized of him.
3:14: But John forbad him, saying, I have need to
be baptized of thee, and comest thou to me?
3:15: And Jesus answering said unto him, Suffer it
to be so now: for thus it becometh us to fulfil all righteousness.
Then he suffered him.
3:16: And Jesus, when he was baptized, went up straightway
out of the water: and, lo, the heavens were opened unto him, and
he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove, and lighting
3:17: And lo a voice from heaven, saying, This is
my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.
4:1: Then was Jesus led up of the Spirit into the
wilderness to be tempted of the devil.
4:2: And when he had fasted forty days and forty
nights, he was afterward an hungred.
4:3: And when the tempter came to him, he said, If
thou be the Son of God, command that these stones be made bread.
4:4: But he answered and said, It is written, Man
shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth
out of the mouth of God.
4:5: Then the devil taketh him up into the holy city,
and setteth him on a pinnacle of the temple,
4:6: And saith unto him, If thou be the Son of God,
cast thyself down: for it is written, He shall give his angels
charge concerning thee: and in their hands they shall bear thee
up, lest at any time thou dash thy foot against a stone.
4:7: Jesus said unto him, It is written again, Thou
shalt not tempt the Lord thy God.
4:8: Again, the devil taketh him up into an exceeding
high mountain, and sheweth him all the kingdoms of the world,
and the glory of them;
4:9: And saith unto him, All these things will I
give thee, if thou wilt fall down and worship me.
4:10: Then saith Jesus unto him, Get thee hence,
Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God,
and him only shalt thou serve.
4:11: Then the devil leaveth him, and, behold, angels
came and ministered unto him.
4:12: Now when Jesus had heard that John was cast
into prison, he departed into Galilee;
4:13: And leaving Nazareth, he came and dwelt in
Capernaum, which is upon the sea coast, in the borders of Zabulon
4:14: That it might be fulfilled which was spoken
by Esaias the prophet, saying,
4:15: The land of Zabulon, and the land of Nephthalim,
by the way of the sea, beyond Jordan, Galilee of the Gentiles;
4:16: The people which sat in darkness saw great
light; and to them which sat in the region and shadow of death
light is sprung up.
4:17: From that time Jesus began to preach, and to
say, Repent: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.
4:18: And Jesus, walking by the sea of Galilee, saw
two brethren, Simon called Peter, and Andrew his brother, casting
a net into the sea: for they were fishers.
4:19: And he saith unto them, Follow me, and I will
make you fishers of men.
4:20: And they straightway left their nets, and followed
4:21: And going on from thence, he saw other two
brethren, James the son of Zebedee, and John his brother, in a
ship with Zebedee their father, mending their nets; and he called
4:22: And they immediately left the ship and their
father, and followed him.
4:23: And Jesus went about all Galilee, teaching
in their synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the kingdom,
and healing all manner of sickness and all manner of disease among
4:24: And his fame went throughout all Syria: and
they brought unto him all sick people that were taken with divers
diseases and torments, and those which were possessed with devils,
and those which were lunatick, and those that had the palsy; and
he healed them.
4:25: And there followed him great multitudes of
people from Galilee, and from Decapolis, and from Jerusalem, and
from Judaea, and from beyond Jordan.
5:1: And seeing the multitudes, he went up into a
mountain: and when he was set, his disciples came unto him:
5:2: And he opened his mouth, and taught them, saying,
5:3: Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is
the kingdom of heaven.
5:4: Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall
5:5: Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit
5:6: Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst
after righteousness: for they shall be filled.
5:7: Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain
5:8: Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall
5:9: Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall
be called the children of God.
5:10: Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness'
sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
5:11: Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you,
and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you
falsely, for my sake.
5:12: Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is
your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which
were before you.
5:13: Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt
have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth
good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under
foot of men.
5:14: Ye are the light of the world. A city that
is set on an hill cannot be hid.
5:15: Neither do men light a candle, and put it under
a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that
are in the house.
5:16: Let your light so shine before men, that they
may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.
5:17: Think not that I am come to destroy the law,
or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil.
5:18: For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and
earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the
law, till all be fulfilled.
5:19: Whosoever therefore shall break one of these
least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called
the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and
teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.
5:20: For I say unto you, That except your righteousness
shall exceed the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, ye
shall in no case enter into the kingdom of heaven.
5:21: Ye have heard that it was said by them of old
time, Thou shalt not kill; and whosoever shall kill shall be in
danger of the judgment:
5:22: But I say unto you, That whosoever is angry
with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment:
and whosoever shall say to his brother, Raca, shall be in danger
of the council: but whosoever shall say, Thou fool, shall be in
danger of hell fire.
5:23: Therefore if thou bring thy gift to the altar,
and there rememberest that thy brother hath ought against thee;
5:24: Leave there thy gift before the altar, and
go thy way; first be reconciled to thy brother, and then come
and offer thy gift.
5:25: Agree with thine adversary quickly, whiles
thou art in the way with him; lest at any time the adversary deliver
thee to the judge, and the judge deliver thee to the officer,
and thou be cast into prison.
5:26: Verily I say unto thee, Thou shalt by no means
come out thence, till thou hast paid the uttermost farthing.
5:27: Ye have heard that it was said by them of old
time, Thou shalt not commit adultery:
5:28: But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh
on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her
already in his heart.
5:29: And if thy right eye offend thee, pluck it
out, and cast it from thee: for it is profitable for thee that
one of thy members should perish, and not that thy whole body
should be cast into hell.
5:30: And if thy right hand offend thee, cut it off,
and cast it from thee: for it is profitable for thee that one
of thy members should perish, and not that thy whole body should
be cast into hell.
5:31: It hath been said, Whosoever shall put away
his wife, let him give her a writing of divorcement:
5:32: But I say unto you, That whosoever shall put
away his wife, saving for the cause of fornication, causeth her
to commit adultery: and whosoever shall marry her that is divorced
5:33: Again, ye have heard that it hath been said
by them of old time, Thou shalt not forswear thyself, but shalt
perform unto the Lord thine oaths:
5:34: But I say unto you, Swear not at all; neither
by heaven; for it is God's throne:
5:35: Nor by the earth; for it is his footstool:
neither by Jerusalem; for it is the city of the great King.
5:36: Neither shalt thou swear by thy head, because
thou canst not make one hair white or black.
5:37: But let your communication be, Yea, yea; Nay,
nay: for whatsoever is more than these cometh of evil.
5:38: Ye have heard that it hath been said, An eye
for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth:
5:39: But I say unto you, That ye resist not evil:
but whosoever shall smite thee on thy right cheek, turn to him
the other also.
5:40: And if any man will sue thee at the law, and
take away thy coat, let him have thy cloke also.
5:41: And whosoever shall compel thee to go a mile,
go with him twain.
5:42: Give to him that asketh thee, and from him
that would borrow of thee turn not thou away.
5:43: Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou
shalt love thy neighbour, and hate thine enemy.
5:44: But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless
them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for
them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;
5:45: That ye may be the children of your Father
which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil
and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust.
5:46: For if ye love them which love you, what reward
have ye? do not even the publicans the same?
5:47: And if ye salute your brethren only, what do
ye more than others? do not even the publicans so?
5:48: Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father
which is in heaven is perfect.
6:1: Take heed that ye do not your alms before men,
to be seen of them: otherwise ye have no reward of your Father
which is in heaven.
6:2: Therefore when thou doest thine alms, do not
sound a trumpet before thee, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues
and in the streets, that they may have glory of men. Verily I
say unto you, They have their reward.
6:3: But when thou doest alms, let not thy left hand
know what thy right hand doeth:
6:4: That thine alms may be in secret: and thy Father
which seeth in secret himself shall reward thee openly.
6:5: And when thou prayest, thou shalt not be as
the hypocrites are: for they love to pray standing in the synagogues
and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen of men.
Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.
6:6: But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy
closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which
is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward
6:7: But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions,
as the heathen do: for they think that they shall be heard for
their much speaking.
6:8: Be not ye therefore like unto them: for your
Father knoweth what things ye have need of, before ye ask him.
6:9: After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father
which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.
6:10: Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth,
as it is in heaven.
6:11: Give us this day our daily bread.
6:12: And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our
6:13: And lead us not into temptation, but deliver
us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the
glory, for ever. Amen.
6:14: For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your
heavenly Father will also forgive you:
6:15: But if ye forgive not men their trespasses,
neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.
6:16: Moreover when ye fast, be not, as the hypocrites,
of a sad countenance: for they disfigure their faces, that they
may appear unto men to fast. Verily I say unto you, They have
6:17: But thou, when thou fastest, anoint thine head,
and wash thy face;
6:18: That thou appear not unto men to fast, but
unto thy Father which is in secret: and thy Father, which seeth
in secret, shall reward thee openly.
6:19: Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth,
where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through
6:20: But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven,
where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do
not break through nor steal:
6:21: For where your treasure is, there will your
heart be also.
6:22: The light of the body is the eye: if therefore
thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light.
6:23: But if thine eye be evil, thy whole body shall
be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in thee be
darkness, how great is that darkness!
6:24: No man can serve two masters: for either he
will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to
the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.
6:25: Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for
your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet
for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than
meat, and the body than raiment?
6:26: Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not,
neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly
Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they?
6:27: Which of you by taking thought can add one
cubit unto his stature?
6:28: And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider
the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither
do they spin:
6:29: And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in
all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.
6:30: Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the
field, which to day is, and to morrow is cast into the oven, shall
he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith?
6:31: Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall
we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed?
6:32: (For after all these things do the Gentiles
seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all
6:33: But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his
righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.
6:34: Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for
the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient
unto the day is the evil thereof.
7:1: Judge not, that ye be not judged.
7:2: For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be
judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to
7:3: And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy
brother's eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own
7:4: Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me
pull out the mote out of thine eye; and, behold, a beam is in
thine own eye?
7:5: Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out
of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out
the mote out of thy brother's eye.
7:6: Give not that which is holy unto the dogs, neither
cast ye your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under
their feet, and turn again and rend you.
7:7: Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye
shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you:
7:8: For every one that asketh receiveth; and he
that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.
7:9: Or what man is there of you, whom if his son
ask bread, will he give him a stone?
7:10: Or if he ask a fish, will he give him a serpent?
7:11: If ye then, being evil, know how to give good
gifts unto your children, how much more shall your Father which
is in heaven give good things to them that ask him?
7:12: Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that
men should do to you, do ye even so to them: for this is the law
and the prophets.
7:13: Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is
the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and
many there be which go in thereat:
7:14: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the
way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.
7:15: Beware of false prophets, which come to you
in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.
7:16: Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men
gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?
7:17: Even so every good tree bringeth forth good
fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit.
7:18: A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit,
neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.
7:19: Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit
is hewn down, and cast into the fire.
7:20: Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.
7:21: Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord,
shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the
will of my Father which is in heaven.
7:22: Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord,
have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast
out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?
7:23: And then will I profess unto them, I never
knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.
7:24: Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of
mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which
built his house upon a rock:
7:25: And the rain descended, and the floods came,
and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not:
for it was founded upon a rock.
7:26: And every one that heareth these sayings of
mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man,
which built his house upon the sand:
7:27: And the rain descended, and the floods came,
and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and
great was the fall of it.
7:28: And it came to pass, when Jesus had ended these
sayings, the people were astonished at his doctrine:
7:29: For he taught them as one having authority,
and not as the scribes.
8:1: When he was come down from the mountain, great
multitudes followed him.
8:2: And, behold, there came a leper and worshipped
him, saying, Lord, if thou wilt, thou canst make me clean.
8:3: And Jesus put forth his hand, and touched him,
saying, I will; be thou clean. And immediately his leprosy was
8:4: And Jesus saith unto him, See thou tell no man;
but go thy way, shew thyself to the priest, and offer the gift
that Moses commanded, for a testimony unto them.
8:5: And when Jesus was entered into Capernaum, there
came unto him a centurion, beseeching him,
8:6: And saying, Lord, my servant lieth at home sick
of the palsy, grievously tormented.
8:7: And Jesus saith unto him, I will come and heal
8:8: The centurion answered and said, Lord, I am
not worthy that thou shouldest come under my roof: but speak the
word only, and my servant shall be healed.
8:9: For I am a man under authority, having soldiers
under me: and I say to this man, Go, and he goeth; and to another,
Come, and he cometh; and to my servant, Do this, and he doeth
8:10: When Jesus heard it, he marvelled, and said
to them that followed, Verily I say unto you, I have not found
so great faith, no, not in Israel.
8:11: And I say unto you, That many shall come from
the east and west, and shall sit down with Abraham, and Isaac,
and Jacob, in the kingdom of heaven.
8:12: But the children of the kingdom shall be cast
out into outer darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of
8:13: And Jesus said unto the centurion, Go thy way;
and as thou hast believed, so be it done unto thee. And his servant
was healed in the selfsame hour.
8:14: And when Jesus was come into Peter's house,
he saw his wife's mother laid, and sick of a fever.
8:15: And he touched her hand, and the fever left
her: and she arose, and ministered unto them.
8:16: When the even was come, they brought unto him
many that were possessed with devils: and he cast out the spirits
with his word, and healed all that were sick:
8:17: That it might be fulfilled which was spoken
by Esaias the prophet, saying, Himself took our infirmities, and
bare our sicknesses.
8:18: Now when Jesus saw great multitudes about him,
he gave commandment to depart unto the other side.
8:19: And a certain scribe came, and said unto him,
Master, I will follow thee whithersoever thou goest.
8:20: And Jesus saith unto him, The foxes have holes,
and the birds of the air have nests; but the Son of man hath not
where to lay his head.
8:21: And another of his disciples said unto him,
Lord, suffer me first to go and bury my father.
8:22: But Jesus said unto him, Follow me; and let
the dead bury their dead.
8:23: And when he was entered into a ship, his disciples
8:24: And, behold, there arose a great tempest in
the sea, insomuch that the ship was covered with the waves: but
he was asleep.
8:25: And his disciples came to him, and awoke him,
saying, Lord, save us: we perish.
8:26: And he saith unto them, Why are ye fearful,
O ye of little faith? Then he arose, and rebuked the winds and
the sea; and there was a great calm.
8:27: But the men marvelled, saying, What manner
of man is this, that even the winds and the sea obey him!
8:28: And when he was come to the other side into
the country of the Gergesenes, there met him two possessed with
devils, coming out of the tombs, exceeding fierce, so that no
man might pass by that way.
8:29: And, behold, they cried out, saying, What have
we to do with thee, Jesus, thou Son of God? art thou come hither
to torment us before the time?
8:30: And there was a good way off from them an herd
of many swine feeding.
8:31: So the devils besought him, saying, If thou
cast us out, suffer us to go away into the herd of swine.
8:32: And he said unto them, Go. And when they were
come out, they went into the herd of swine: and, behold, the whole
herd of swine ran violently down a steep place into the sea, and
perished in the waters.
8:33: And they that kept them fled, and went their
ways into the city, and told every thing, and what was befallen
to the possessed of the devils.
8:34: And, behold, the whole city came out to meet
Jesus: and when they saw him, they besought him that he would
depart out of their coasts.
9:1: And he entered into a ship, and passed over,
and came into his own city.
9:2: And, behold, they brought to him a man sick
of the palsy, lying on a bed: and Jesus seeing their faith said
unto the sick of the palsy; Son, be of good cheer; thy sins be
9:3: And, behold, certain of the scribes said within
themselves, This man blasphemeth.
9:4: And Jesus knowing their thoughts said, Wherefore
think ye evil in your hearts?
9:5: For whether is easier, to say, Thy sins be forgiven
thee; or to say, Arise, and walk?
9:6: But that ye may know that the Son of man hath
power on earth to forgive sins, (then saith he to the sick of
the palsy,) Arise, take up thy bed, and go unto thine house.
9:7: And he arose, and departed to his house.
9:8: But when the multitudes saw it, they marvelled,
and glorified God, which had given such power unto men.
9:9: And as Jesus passed forth from thence, he saw
a man, named Matthew, sitting at the receipt of custom: and he
saith unto him, Follow me. And he arose, and followed him.
9:10: And it came to pass, as Jesus sat at meat in
the house, behold, many publicans and sinners came and sat down
with him and his disciples.
9:11: And when the Pharisees saw it, they said unto
his disciples, Why eateth your Master with publicans and sinners?
9:12: But when Jesus heard that, he said unto them,
They that be whole need not a physician, but they that are sick.
9:13: But go ye and learn what that meaneth, I will
have mercy, and not sacrifice: for I am not come to call the righteous,
but sinners to repentance.
9:14: Then came to him the disciples of John, saying,
Why do we and the Pharisees fast oft, but thy disciples fast not?
9:15: And Jesus said unto them, Can the children
of the bridechamber mourn, as long as the bridegroom is with them?
but the days will come, when the bridegroom shall be taken from
them, and then shall they fast.
9:16: No man putteth a piece of new cloth unto an
old garment, for that which is put in to fill it up taketh from
the garment, and the rent is made worse.
9:17: Neither do men put new wine into old bottles:
else the bottles break, and the wine runneth out, and the bottles
perish: but they put new wine into new bottles, and both are preserved.
9:18: While he spake these things unto them, behold,
there came a certain ruler, and worshipped him, saying, My daughter
is even now dead: but come and lay thy hand upon her, and she
9:19: And Jesus arose, and followed him, and so did
9:20: And, behold, a woman, which was diseased with
an issue of blood twelve years, came behind him, and touched the
hem of his garment:
9:21: For she said within herself, If I may but touch
his garment, I shall be whole.
9:22: But Jesus turned him about, and when he saw
her, he said, Daughter, be of good comfort; thy faith hath made
thee whole. And the woman was made whole from that hour.
9:23: And when Jesus came into the ruler's house,
and saw the minstrels and the people making a noise,
9:24: He said unto them, Give place: for the maid
is not dead, but sleepeth. And they laughed him to scorn.
9:25: But when the people were put forth, he went
in, and took her by the hand, and the maid arose.
9:26: And the fame hereof went abroad into all that
9:27: And when Jesus departed thence, two blind men
followed him, crying, and saying, Thou Son of David, have mercy
9:28: And when he was come into the house, the blind
men came to him: and Jesus saith unto them, Believe ye that I
am able to do this? They said unto him, Yea, Lord.
9:29: Then touched he their eyes, saying, According
to your faith be it unto you.
9:30: And their eyes were opened; and Jesus straitly
charged them, saying, See that no man know it.
9:31: But they, when they were departed, spread abroad
his fame in all that country.
9:32: As they went out, behold, they brought to him
a dumb man possessed with a devil.
9:33: And when the devil was cast out, the dumb spake:
and the multitudes marvelled, saying, It was never so seen in
9:34: But the Pharisees said, He casteth out devils
through the prince of the devils.
9:35: And Jesus went about all the cities and villages,
teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the
kingdom, and healing every sickness and every disease among the
9:36: But when he saw the multitudes, he was moved
with compassion on them, because they fainted, and were scattered
abroad, as sheep having no shepherd.
9:37: Then saith he unto his disciples, The harvest
truly is plenteous, but the labourers are few;
9:38: Pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest,
that he will send forth labourers into his harvest.
10:1: And when he had called unto him his twelve
disciples, he gave them power against unclean spirits, to cast
them out, and to heal all manner of sickness and all manner of
10:2: Now the names of the twelve apostles are these;
The first, Simon, who is called Peter, and Andrew his brother;
James the son of Zebedee, and John his brother;
10:3: Philip, and Bartholomew; Thomas, and Matthew
the publican; James the son of Alphaeus, and Lebbaeus, whose surname
10:4: Simon the Canaanite, and Judas Iscariot, who
also betrayed him.
10:5: These twelve Jesus sent forth, and commanded
them, saying, Go not into the way of the Gentiles, and into any
city of the Samaritans enter ye not:
10:6: But go rather to the lost sheep of the house
10:7: And as ye go, preach, saying, The kingdom of
heaven is at hand.
10:8: Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the
dead, cast out devils: freely ye have received, freely give.
10:9: Provide neither gold, nor silver, nor brass
in your purses,
10:10: Nor scrip for your journey, neither two coats,
neither shoes, nor yet staves: for the workman is worthy of his
10:11: And into whatsoever city or town ye shall
enter, enquire who in it is worthy; and there abide till ye go
10:12: And when ye come into an house, salute it.
10:13: And if the house be worthy, let your peace
come upon it: but if it be not worthy, let your peace return to
10:14: And whosoever shall not receive you, nor hear
your words, when ye depart out of that house or city, shake off
the dust of your feet.
10:15: Verily I say unto you, It shall be more tolerable
for the land of Sodom and Gomorrha in the day of judgment, than
for that city.
10:16: Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst
of wolves: be ye therefore wise as serpents, and harmless as doves.
10:17: But beware of men: for they will deliver you
up to the councils, and they will scourge you in their synagogues;
10:18: And ye shall be brought before governors and
kings for my sake, for a testimony against them and the Gentiles.
10:19: But when they deliver you up, take no thought
how or what ye shall speak: for it shall be given you in that
same hour what ye shall speak.
10:20: For it is not ye that speak, but the Spirit
of your Father which speaketh in you.
10:21: And the brother shall deliver up the brother
to death, and the father the child: and the children shall rise
up against their parents, and cause them to be put to death.
10:22: And ye shall be hated of all men for my name's
sake: but he that endureth to the end shall be saved.
10:23: But when they persecute you in this city,
flee ye into another: for verily I say unto you, Ye shall not
have gone over the cities of Israel, till the Son of man be come.
10:24: The disciple is not above his master, nor
the servant above his lord.
10:25: It is enough for the disciple that he be as
his master, and the servant as his lord. If they have called the
master of the house Beelzebub, how much more shall they call them
of his household?
10:26: Fear them not therefore: for there is nothing
covered, that shall not be revealed; and hid, that shall not be
10:27: What I tell you in darkness, that speak ye
in light: and what ye hear in the ear, that preach ye upon the
10:28: And fear not them which kill the body, but
are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able
to destroy both soul and body in hell.
10:29: Are not two sparrows sold for a farthing?
and one of them shall not fall on the ground without your Father.
10:30: But the very hairs of your head are all numbered.
10:31: Fear ye not therefore, ye are of more value
than many sparrows.
10:32: Whosoever therefore shall confess me before
men, him will I confess also before my Father which is in heaven.
10:33: But whosoever shall deny me before men, him
will I also deny before my Father which is in heaven.
10:34: Think not that I am come to send peace on
earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword.
10:35: For I am come to set a man at variance against
his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter
in law against her mother in law.
10:36: And a man's foes shall be they of his own
10:37: He that loveth father or mother more than
me is not worthy of me: and he that loveth son or daughter more
than me is not worthy of me.
10:38: And he that taketh not his cross, and followeth
after me, is not worthy of me.
10:39: He that findeth his life shall lose it: and
he that loseth his life for my sake shall find it.
10:40: He that receiveth you receiveth me, and he
that receiveth me receiveth him that sent me.
10:41: He that receiveth a prophet in the name of
a prophet shall receive a prophet's reward; and he that receiveth
a righteous man in the name of a righteous man shall receive a
righteous man's reward.
10:42: And whosoever shall give to drink unto one
of these little ones a cup of cold water only in the name of a
disciple, verily I say unto you, he shall in no wise lose his
11:1: And it came to pass, when Jesus had made an
end of commanding his twelve disciples, he departed thence to
teach and to preach in their cities.
11:2: Now when John had heard in the prison the works
of Christ, he sent two of his disciples,
11:3: And said unto him, Art thou he that should
come, or do we look for another?
11:4: Jesus answered and said unto them, Go and shew
John again those things which ye do hear and see:
11:5: The blind receive their sight, and the lame
walk, the lepers are cleansed, and the deaf hear, the dead are
raised up, and the poor have the gospel preached to them.
11:6: And blessed is he, whosoever shall not be offended
11:7: And as they departed, Jesus began to say unto
the multitudes concerning John, What went ye out into the wilderness
to see? A reed shaken with the wind?
11:8: But what went ye out for to see? A man clothed
in soft raiment? behold, they that wear soft clothing are in kings'
11:9: But what went ye out for to see? A prophet?
yea, I say unto you, and more than a prophet.
11:10: For this is he, of whom it is written, Behold,
I send my messenger before thy face, which shall prepare thy way
11:11: Verily I say unto you, Among them that are
born of women there hath not risen a greater than John the Baptist:
notwithstanding he that is least in the kingdom of heaven is greater
11:12: And from the days of John the Baptist until
now the kingdom of heaven suffereth violence, and the violent
take it by force.
11:13: For all the prophets and the law prophesied
11:14: And if ye will receive it, this is Elias,
which was for to come.
11:15: He that hath ears to hear, let him hear.
11:16: But whereunto shall I liken this generation?
It is like unto children sitting in the markets, and calling unto
11:17: And saying, We have piped unto you, and ye
have not danced; we have mourned unto you, and ye have not lamented.
11:18: For John came neither eating nor drinking,
and they say, He hath a devil.
11:19: The Son of man came eating and drinking, and
they say, Behold a man gluttonous, and a winebibber, a friend
of publicans and sinners. But wisdom is justified of her children.
11:20: Then began he to upbraid the cities wherein
most of his mighty works were done, because they repented not:
11:21: Woe unto thee, Chorazin! woe unto thee, Bethsaida!
for if the mighty works, which were done in you, had been done
in Tyre and Sidon, they would have repented long ago in sackcloth
11:22: But I say unto you, It shall be more tolerable
for Tyre and Sidon at the day of judgment, than for you.
11:23: And thou, Capernaum, which art exalted unto
heaven, shalt be brought down to hell: for if the mighty works,
which have been done in thee, had been done in Sodom, it would
have remained until this day.
11:24: But I say unto you, That it shall be more
tolerable for the land of Sodom in the day of judgment, than for
11:25: At that time Jesus answered and said, I thank
thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because thou hast hid
these things from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them
11:26: Even so, Father: for so it seemed good in
11:27: All things are delivered unto me of my Father:
and no man knoweth the Son, but the Father; neither knoweth any
man the Father, save the Son, and he to whomsoever the Son will
11:28: Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy
laden, and I will give you rest.
11:29: Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for
I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your
11:30: For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.
12:1: At that time Jesus went on the sabbath day
through the corn; and his disciples were an hungred, and began
to pluck the ears of corn, and to eat.
12:2: But when the Pharisees saw it, they said unto
him, Behold, thy disciples do that which is not lawful to do upon
the sabbath day.
12:3: But he said unto them, Have ye not read what
David did, when he was an hungred, and they that were with him;
12:4: How he entered into the house of God, and did
eat the shewbread, which was not lawful for him to eat, neither
for them which were with him, but only for the priests?
12:5: Or have ye not read in the law, how that on
the sabbath days the priests in the temple profane the sabbath,
and are blameless?
12:6: But I say unto you, That in this place is one
greater than the temple.
12:7: But if ye had known what this meaneth, I will
have mercy, and not sacrifice, ye would not have condemned the
12:8: For the Son of man is Lord even of the sabbath
12:9: And when he was departed thence, he went into
12:10: And, behold, there was a man which had his
hand withered. And they asked him, saying, Is it lawful to heal
on the sabbath days? that they might accuse him.
12:11: And he said unto them, What man shall there
be among you, that shall have one sheep, and if it fall into a
pit on the sabbath day, will he not lay hold on it, and lift it
12:12: How much then is a man better than a sheep?
Wherefore it is lawful to do well on the sabbath days.
12:13: Then saith he to the man, Stretch forth thine
hand. And he stretched it forth; and it was restored whole, like
as the other.
12:14: Then the Pharisees went out, and held a council
against him, how they might destroy him.
12:15: But when Jesus knew it, he withdrew himself
from thence: and great multitudes followed him, and he healed
12:16: And charged them that they should not make
12:17: That it might be fulfilled which was spoken
by Esaias the prophet, saying,
12:18: Behold my servant, whom I have chosen; my
beloved, in whom my soul is well pleased: I will put my spirit
upon him, and he shall shew judgment to the Gentiles.
12:19: He shall not strive, nor cry; neither shall
any man hear his voice in the streets.
12:20: A bruised reed shall he not break, and smoking
flax shall he not quench, till he send forth judgment unto victory.
12:21: And in his name shall the Gentiles trust.
12:22: Then was brought unto him one possessed with
a devil, blind, and dumb: and he healed him, insomuch that the
blind and dumb both spake and saw.
12:23: And all the people were amazed, and said,
Is not this the son of David?
12:24: But when the Pharisees heard it, they said,
This fellow doth not cast out devils, but by Beelzebub the prince
of the devils.
12:25: And Jesus knew their thoughts, and said unto
them, Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation;
and every city or house divided against itself shall not stand:
12:26: And if Satan cast out Satan, he is divided
against himself; how shall then his kingdom stand?
12:27: And if I by Beelzebub cast out devils, by
whom do your children cast them out? therefore they shall be your
12:28: But if I cast out devils by the Spirit of
God, then the kingdom of God is come unto you.
12:29: Or else how can one enter into a strong man's
house, and spoil his goods, except he first bind the strong man?
and then he will spoil his house.
12:30: He that is not with me is against me; and
he that gathereth not with me scattereth abroad.
12:31: Wherefore I say unto you, All manner of sin
and blasphemy shall be forgiven unto men: but the blasphemy against
the Holy Ghost shall not be forgiven unto men.
12:32: And whosoever speaketh a word against the
Son of man, it shall be forgiven him: but whosoever speaketh against
the Holy Ghost, it shall not be forgiven him, neither in this
world, neither in the world to come.
12:33: Either make the tree good, and his fruit good;
or else make the tree corrupt, and his fruit corrupt: for the
tree is known by his fruit.
12:34: O generation of vipers, how can ye, being
evil, speak good things? for out of the abundance of the heart
the mouth speaketh.
12:35: A good man out of the good treasure of the
heart bringeth forth good things: and an evil man out of the evil
treasure bringeth forth evil things.
12:36: But I say unto you, That every idle word that
men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of
12:37: For by thy words thou shalt be justified,
and by thy words thou shalt be condemned.
12:38: Then certain of the scribes and of the Pharisees
answered, saying, Master, we would see a sign from thee.
12:39: But he answered and said unto them, An evil
and adulterous generation seeketh after a sign; and there shall
no sign be given to it, but the sign of the prophet Jonas:
12:40: For as Jonas was three days and three nights
in the whale's belly; so shall the Son of man be three days and
three nights in the heart of the earth.
12:41: The men of Nineveh shall rise in judgment
with this generation, and shall condemn it: because they repented
at the preaching of Jonas; and, behold, a greater than Jonas is
12:42: The queen of the south shall rise up in the
judgment with this generation, and shall condemn it: for she came
from the uttermost parts of the earth to hear the wisdom of Solomon;
and, behold, a greater than Solomon is here.
12:43: When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man,
he walketh through dry places, seeking rest, and findeth none.
12:44: Then he saith, I will return into my house
from whence I came out; and when he is come, he findeth it empty,
swept, and garnished.
12:45: Then goeth he, and taketh with himself seven
other spirits more wicked than himself, and they enter in and
dwell there: and the last state of that man is worse than the
first. Even so shall it be also unto this wicked generation.
12:46: While he yet talked to the people, behold,
his mother and his brethren stood without, desiring to speak with
12:47: Then one said unto him, Behold, thy mother
and thy brethren stand without, desiring to speak with thee.
12:48: But he answered and said unto him that told
him, Who is my mother? and who are my brethren?
12:49: And he stretched forth his hand toward his
disciples, and said, Behold my mother and my brethren!
12:50: For whosoever shall do the will of my Father
which is in heaven, the same is my brother, and sister, and mother.
13:1: The same day went Jesus out of the house, and
sat by the sea side.
13:2: And great multitudes were gathered together
unto him, so that he went into a ship, and sat; and the whole
multitude stood on the shore.
13:3: And he spake many things unto them in parables,
saying, Behold, a sower went forth to sow;
13:4: And when he sowed, some seeds fell by the way
side, and the fowls came and devoured them up:
13:5: Some fell upon stony places, where they had
not much earth: and forthwith they sprung up, because they had
no deepness of earth:
13:6: And when the sun was up, they were scorched;
and because they had no root, they withered away.
13:7: And some fell among thorns; and the thorns
sprung up, and choked them:
13:8: But other fell into good ground, and brought
forth fruit, some an hundredfold, some sixtyfold, some thirtyfold.
13:9: Who hath ears to hear, let him hear.
13:10: And the disciples came, and said unto him,
Why speakest thou unto them in parables?
13:11: He answered and said unto them, Because it
is given unto you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven,
but to them it is not given.
13:12: For whosoever hath, to him shall be given,
and he shall have more abundance: but whosoever hath not, from
him shall be taken away even that he hath.
13:13: Therefore speak I to them in parables: because
they seeing see not; and hearing they hear not, neither do they
13:14: And in them is fulfilled the prophecy of Esaias,
which saith, By hearing ye shall hear, and shall not understand;
and seeing ye shall see, and shall not perceive:
13:15: For this people's heart is waxed gross, and
their ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes they have closed;
lest at any time they should see with their eyes, and hear with
their ears, and should understand with their heart, and should
be converted, and I should heal them.
13:16: But blessed are your eyes, for they see: and
your ears, for they hear.
13:17: For verily I say unto you, That many prophets
and righteous men have desired to see those things which ye see,
and have not seen them; and to hear those things which ye hear,
and have not heard them.
13:18: Hear ye therefore the parable of the sower.
13:19: When any one heareth the word of the kingdom,
and understandeth it not, then cometh the wicked one, and catcheth
away that which was sown in his heart. This is he which received
seed by the way side.
13:20: But he that received the seed into stony places,
the same is he that heareth the word, and anon with joy receiveth
13:21: Yet hath he not root in himself, but dureth
for a while: for when tribulation or persecution ariseth because
of the word, by and by he is offended.
13:22: He also that received seed among the thorns
is he that heareth the word; and the care of this world, and the
deceitfulness of riches, choke the word, and he becometh unfruitful.
13:23: But he that received seed into the good ground
is he that heareth the word, and understandeth it; which also
beareth fruit, and bringeth forth, some an hundredfold, some sixty,
13:24: Another parable put he forth unto them, saying,
The kingdom of heaven is likened unto a man which sowed good seed
in his field:
13:25: But while men slept, his enemy came and sowed
tares among the wheat, and went his way.
13:26: But when the blade was sprung up, and brought
forth fruit, then appeared the tares also.
13:27: So the servants of the householder came and
said unto him, Sir, didst not thou sow good seed in thy field?
from whence then hath it tares?
13:28: He said unto them, An enemy hath done this.
The servants said unto him, Wilt thou then that we go and gather
13:29: But he said, Nay; lest while ye gather up
the tares, ye root up also the wheat with them.
13:30: Let both grow together until the harvest:
and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, Gather ye
together first the tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them:
but gather the wheat into my barn.
13:31: Another parable put he forth unto them, saying,
The kingdom of heaven is like to a grain of mustard seed, which
a man took, and sowed in his field:
13:32: Which indeed is the least of all seeds: but
when it is grown, it is the greatest among herbs, and becometh
a tree, so that the birds of the air come and lodge in the branches
13:33: Another parable spake he unto them; The kingdom
of heaven is like unto leaven, which a woman took, and hid in
three measures of meal, till the whole was leavened.
13:34: All these things spake Jesus unto the multitude
in parables; and without a parable spake he not unto them:
13:35: That it might be fulfilled which was spoken
by the prophet, saying, I will open my mouth in parables; I will
utter things which have been kept secret from the foundation of
13:36: Then Jesus sent the multitude away, and went
into the house: and his disciples came unto him, saying, Declare
unto us the parable of the tares of the field.
13:37: He answered and said unto them, He that soweth
the good seed is the Son of man;
13:38: The field is the world; the good seed are
the children of the kingdom; but the tares are the children of
the wicked one;
13:39: The enemy that sowed them is the devil; the
harvest is the end of the world; and the reapers are the angels.
13:40: As therefore the tares are gathered and burned
in the fire; so shall it be in the end of this world.
13:41: The Son of man shall send forth his angels,
and they shall gather out of his kingdom all things that offend,
and them which do iniquity;
13:42: And shall cast them into a furnace of fire:
there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth.
13:43: Then shall the righteous shine forth as the
sun in the kingdom of their Father. Who hath ears to hear, let
13:44: Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto
treasure hid in a field; the which when a man hath found, he hideth,
and for joy thereof goeth and selleth all that he hath, and buyeth
13:45: Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto
a merchant man, seeking goodly pearls:
13:46: Who, when he had found one pearl of great
price, went and sold all that he had, and bought it.
13:47: Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto
a net, that was cast into the sea, and gathered of every kind:
13:48: Which, when it was full, they drew to shore,
and sat down, and gathered the good into vessels, but cast the
13:49: So shall it be at the end of the world: the
angels shall come forth, and sever the wicked from among the just,
13:50: And shall cast them into the furnace of fire:
there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth.
13:51: Jesus saith unto them, Have ye understood
all these things? They say unto him, Yea, Lord.
13:52: Then said he unto them, Therefore every scribe
which is instructed unto the kingdom of heaven is like unto a
man that is an householder, which bringeth forth out of his treasure
things new and old.
13:53: And it came to pass, that when Jesus had finished
these parables, he departed thence.
13:54: And when he was come into his own country,
he taught them in their synagogue, insomuch that they were astonished,
and said, Whence hath this man this wisdom, and these mighty works?
13:55: Is not this the carpenter's son? is not his
mother called Mary? and his brethren, James, and Joses, and Simon,
13:56: And his sisters, are they not all with us?
Whence then hath this man all these things?
13:57: And they were offended in him. But Jesus said
unto them, A prophet is not without honour, save in his own country,
and in his own house.
13:58: And he did not many mighty works there because
of their unbelief.
14:1: At that time Herod the tetrarch heard of the
fame of Jesus,
14:2: And said unto his servants, This is John the
Baptist; he is risen from the dead; and therefore mighty works
do shew forth themselves in him.
14:3: For Herod had laid hold on John, and bound
him, and put him in prison for Herodias' sake, his brother Philip's
14:4: For John said unto him, It is not lawful for
thee to have her.
14:5: And when he would have put him to death, he
feared the multitude, because they counted him as a prophet.
14:6: But when Herod's birthday was kept, the daughter
of Herodias danced before them, and pleased Herod.
14:7: Whereupon he promised with an oath to give
her whatsoever she would ask.
14:8: And she, being before instructed of her mother,
said, Give me here John Baptist's head in a charger.
14:9: And the king was sorry: nevertheless for the
oath's sake, and them which sat with him at meat, he commanded
it to be given her.
14:10: And he sent, and beheaded John in the prison.
14:11: And his head was brought in a charger, and
given to the damsel: and she brought it to her mother.
14:12: And his disciples came, and took up the body,
and buried it, and went and told Jesus.
14:13: When Jesus heard of it, he departed thence
by ship into a desert place apart: and when the people had heard
thereof, they followed him on foot out of the cities.
14:14: And Jesus went forth, and saw a great multitude,
and was moved with compassion toward them, and he healed their
14:15: And when it was evening, his disciples came
to him, saying, This is a desert place, and the time is now past;
send the multitude away, that they may go into the villages, and
buy themselves victuals.
14:16: But Jesus said unto them, They need not depart;
give ye them to eat.
14:17: And they say unto him, We have here but five
loaves, and two fishes.
14:18: He said, Bring them hither to me.
14:19: And he commanded the multitude to sit down
on the grass, and took the five loaves, and the two fishes, and
looking up to heaven, he blessed, and brake, and gave the loaves
to his disciples, and the disciples to the multitude.
14:20: And they did all eat, and were filled: and
they took up of the fragments that remained twelve baskets full.
14:21: And they that had eaten were about five thousand
men, beside women and children.
14:22: And straightway Jesus constrained his disciples
to get into a ship, and to go before him unto the other side,
while he sent the multitudes away.
14:23: And when he had sent the multitudes away,
he went up into a mountain apart to pray: and when the evening
was come, he was there alone.
14:24: But the ship was now in the midst of the sea,
tossed with waves: for the wind was contrary.
14:25: And in the fourth watch of the night Jesus
went unto them, walking on the sea.
14:26: And when the disciples saw him walking on
the sea, they were troubled, saying, It is a spirit; and they
cried out for fear.
14:27: But straightway Jesus spake unto them, saying,
Be of good cheer; it is I; be not afraid.
14:28: And Peter answered him and said, Lord, if
it be thou, bid me come unto thee on the water.
14:29: And he said, Come. And when Peter was come
down out of the ship, he walked on the water, to go to Jesus.
14:30: But when he saw the wind boisterous, he was
afraid; and beginning to sink, he cried, saying, Lord, save me.
14:31: And immediately Jesus stretched forth his
hand, and caught him, and said unto him, O thou of little faith,
wherefore didst thou doubt?
14:32: And when they were come into the ship, the
14:33: Then they that were in the ship came and worshipped
him, saying, Of a truth thou art the Son of God.
14:34: And when they were gone over, they came into
the land of Gennesaret.
14:35: And when the men of that place had knowledge
of him, they sent out into all that country round about, and brought
unto him all that were diseased;
14:36: And besought him that they might only touch
the hem of his garment: and as many as touched were made perfectly
15:1: Then came to Jesus scribes and Pharisees, which
were of Jerusalem, saying,
15:2: Why do thy disciples transgress the tradition
of the elders? for they wash not their hands when they eat bread.
15:3: But he answered and said unto them, Why do
ye also transgress the commandment of God by your tradition?
15:4: For God commanded, saying, Honour thy father
and mother: and, He that curseth father or mother, let him die
15:5: But ye say, Whosoever shall say to his father
or his mother, It is a gift, by whatsoever thou mightest be profited
15:6: And honour not his father or his mother, he
shall be free. Thus have ye made the commandment of God of none
effect by your tradition.
15:7: Ye hypocrites, well did Esaias prophesy of
15:8: This people draweth nigh unto me with their
mouth, and honoureth me with their lips; but their heart is far
15:9: But in vain they do worship me, teaching for
doctrines the commandments of men.
15:10: And he called the multitude, and said unto
them, Hear, and understand:
15:11: Not that which goeth into the mouth defileth
a man; but that which cometh out of the mouth, this defileth a
15:12: Then came his disciples, and said unto him,
Knowest thou that the Pharisees were offended, after they heard
15:13: But he answered and said, Every plant, which
my heavenly Father hath not planted, shall be rooted up.
15:14: Let them alone: they be blind leaders of the
blind. And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the
15:15: Then answered Peter and said unto him, Declare
unto us this parable.
15:16: And Jesus said, Are ye also yet without understanding?
15:17: Do not ye yet understand, that whatsoever
entereth in at the mouth goeth into the belly, and is cast out
into the draught?
15:18: But those things which proceed out of the
mouth come forth from the heart; and they defile the man.
15:19: For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts,
murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, blasphemies:
15:20: These are the things which defile a man: but
to eat with unwashen hands defileth not a man.
15:21: Then Jesus went thence, and departed into
the coasts of Tyre and Sidon.
15:22: And, behold, a woman of Canaan came out of
the same coasts, and cried unto him, saying, Have mercy on me,
O Lord, thou Son of David; my daughter is grievously vexed with
15:23: But he answered her not a word. And his disciples
came and besought him, saying, Send her away; for she crieth after
15:24: But he answered and said, I am not sent but
unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel.
15:25: Then came she and worshipped him, saying,
Lord, help me.
15:26: But he answered and said, It is not meet to
take the children's bread, and to cast it to dogs.
15:27: And she said, Truth, Lord: yet the dogs eat
of the crumbs which fall from their masters' table.
15:28: Then Jesus answered and said unto her, O woman,
great is thy faith: be it unto thee even as thou wilt. And her
daughter was made whole from that very hour.
15:29: And Jesus departed from thence, and came nigh
unto the sea of Galilee; and went up into a mountain, and sat
15:30: And great multitudes came unto him, having
with them those that were lame, blind, dumb, maimed, and many
others, and cast them down at Jesus' feet; and he healed them:
15:31: Insomuch that the multitude wondered, when
they saw the dumb to speak, the maimed to be whole, the lame to
walk, and the blind to see: and they glorified the God of Israel.
15:32: Then Jesus called his disciples unto him,
and said, I have compassion on the multitude, because they continue
with me now three days, and have nothing to eat: and I will not
send them away fasting, lest they faint in the way.
15:33: And his disciples say unto him, Whence should
we have so much bread in the wilderness, as to fill so great a
15:34: And Jesus saith unto them, How many loaves
have ye? And they said, Seven, and a few little fishes.
15:35: And he commanded the multitude to sit down
on the ground.
15:36: And he took the seven loaves and the fishes,
and gave thanks, and brake them, and gave to his disciples, and
the disciples to the multitude.
15:37: And they did all eat, and were filled: and
they took up of the broken meat that was left seven baskets full.
15:38: And they that did eat were four thousand men,
beside women and children.
15:39: And he sent away the multitude, and took ship,
and came into the coasts of Magdala.
16:1: The Pharisees also with the Sadducees came,
and tempting desired him that he would shew them a sign from heaven.
16:2: He answered and said unto them, When it is
evening, ye say, It will be fair weather: for the sky is red.
16:3: And in the morning, It will be foul weather
to day: for the sky is red and lowring. O ye hypocrites, ye can
discern the face of the sky; but can ye not discern the signs
of the times?
16:4: A wicked and adulterous generation seeketh
after a sign; and there shall no sign be given unto it, but the
sign of the prophet Jonas. And he left them, and departed.
16:5: And when his disciples were come to the other
side, they had forgotten to take bread.
16:6: Then Jesus said unto them, Take heed and beware
of the leaven of the Pharisees and of the Sadducees.
16:7: And they reasoned among themselves, saying,
It is because we have taken no bread.
16:8: Which when Jesus perceived, he said unto them,
O ye of little faith, why reason ye among yourselves, because
ye have brought no bread?
16:9: Do ye not yet understand, neither remember
the five loaves of the five thousand, and how many baskets ye
16:10: Neither the seven loaves of the four thousand,
and how many baskets ye took up?
16:11: How is it that ye do not understand that I
spake it not to you concerning bread, that ye should beware of
the leaven of the Pharisees and of the Sadducees?
16:12: Then understood they how that he bade them
not beware of the leaven of bread, but of the doctrine of the
Pharisees and of the Sadducees.
16:13: When Jesus came into the coasts of Caesarea
Philippi, he asked his disciples, saying, Whom do men say that
I the Son of man am?
16:14: And they said, Some say that thou art John
the Baptist: some, Elias; and others, Jeremias, or one of the
16:15: He saith unto them, But whom say ye that I
16:16: And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art
the Christ, the Son of the living God.
16:17: And Jesus answered and said unto him, Blessed
art thou, Simon Bar-jona: for flesh and blood hath not revealed
it unto thee, but my Father which is in heaven.
16:18: And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter,
and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell
shall not prevail against it.
16:19: And I will give unto thee the keys of the
kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall
be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall
be loosed in heaven.
16:20: Then charged he his disciples that they should
tell no man that he was Jesus the Christ.
16:21: From that time forth began Jesus to shew unto
his disciples, how that he must go unto Jerusalem, and suffer
many things of the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be
killed, and be raised again the third day.
16:22: Then Peter took him, and began to rebuke him,
saying, Be it far from thee, Lord: this shall not be unto thee.
16:23: But he turned, and said unto Peter, Get thee
behind me, Satan: thou art an offence unto me: for thou savourest
not the things that be of God, but those that be of men.
16:24: Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any
man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his
cross, and follow me.
16:25: For whosoever will save his life shall lose
it: and whosoever will lose his life for my sake shall find it.
16:26: For what is a man profited, if he shall gain
the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give
in exchange for his soul?
16:27: For the Son of man shall come in the glory
of his Father with his angels; and then he shall reward every
man according to his works.
16:28: Verily I say unto you, There be some standing
here, which shall not taste of death, till they see the Son of
man coming in his kingdom.
17:1: And after six days Jesus taketh Peter, James,
and John his brother, and bringeth them up into an high mountain
17:2: And was transfigured before them: and his face
did shine as the sun, and his raiment was white as the light.
17:3: And, behold, there appeared unto them Moses
and Elias talking with him.
17:4: Then answered Peter, and said unto Jesus, Lord,
it is good for us to be here: if thou wilt, let us make here three
tabernacles; one for thee, and one for Moses, and one for Elias.
17:5: While he yet spake, behold, a bright cloud
overshadowed them: and behold a voice out of the cloud, which
said, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased; hear
17:6: And when the disciples heard it, they fell
on their face, and were sore afraid.
17:7: And Jesus came and touched them, and said,
Arise, and be not afraid.
17:8: And when they had lifted up their eyes, they
saw no man, save Jesus only.
17:9: And as they came down from the mountain, Jesus
charged them, saying, Tell the vision to no man, until the Son
of man be risen again from the dead.
17:10: And his disciples asked him, saying, Why then
say the scribes that Elias must first come?
17:11: And Jesus answered and said unto them, Elias
truly shall first come, and restore all things.
17:12: But I say unto you, That Elias is come already,
and they knew him not, but have done unto him whatsoever they
listed. Likewise shall also the Son of man suffer of them.
17:13: Then the disciples understood that he spake
unto them of John the Baptist.
17:14: And when they were come to the multitude,
there came to him a certain man, kneeling down to him, and saying,
17:15: Lord, have mercy on my son: for he is lunatick,
and sore vexed: for ofttimes he falleth into the fire, and oft
into the water.
17:16: And I brought him to thy disciples, and they
could not cure him.
17:17: Then Jesus answered and said, O faithless
and perverse generation, how long shall I be with you? how long
shall I suffer you? bring him hither to me.
17:18: And Jesus rebuked the devil; and he departed
out of him: and the child was cured from that very hour.
17:19: Then came the disciples to Jesus apart, and
said, Why could not we cast him out?
17:20: And Jesus said unto them, Because of your
unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain
of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence
to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible
17:21: Howbeit this kind goeth not out but by prayer
17:22: And while they abode in Galilee, Jesus said
unto them, The Son of man shall be betrayed into the hands of
17:23: And they shall kill him, and the third day
he shall be raised again. And they were exceeding sorry.
17:24: And when they were come to Capernaum, they
that received tribute money came to Peter, and said, Doth not
your master pay tribute?
17:25: He saith, Yes. And when he was come into the
house, Jesus prevented him, saying, What thinkest thou, Simon?
of whom do the kings of the earth take custom or tribute? of their
own children, or of strangers?
17:26: Peter saith unto him, Of strangers. Jesus
saith unto him, Then are the children free.
17:27: Notwithstanding, lest we should offend them,
go thou to the sea, and cast an hook, and take up the fish that
first cometh up; and when thou hast opened his mouth, thou shalt
find a piece of money: that take, and give unto them for me and
18:1: At the same time came the disciples unto Jesus,
saying, Who is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven?
18:2: And Jesus called a little child unto him, and
set him in the midst of them,
18:3: And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye
be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter
into the kingdom of heaven.
18:4: Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as
this little child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven.
18:5: And whoso shall receive one such little child
in my name receiveth me.
18:6: But whoso shall offend one of these little
ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone
were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth
of the sea.
18:7: Woe unto the world because of offences! for
it must needs be that offences come; but woe to that man by whom
the offence cometh!
18:8: Wherefore if thy hand or thy foot offend thee,
cut them off, and cast them from thee: it is better for thee to
enter into life halt or maimed, rather than having two hands or
two feet to be cast into everlasting fire.
18:9: And if thine eye offend thee, pluck it out,
and cast it from thee: it is better for thee to enter into life
with one eye, rather than having two eyes to be cast into hell
18:10: Take heed that ye despise not one of these
little ones; for I say unto you, That in heaven their angels do
always behold the face of my Father which is in heaven.
18:11: For the Son of man is come to save that which
18:12: How think ye? if a man have an hundred sheep,
and one of them be gone astray, doth he not leave the ninety and
nine, and goeth into the mountains, and seeketh that which is
18:13: And if so be that he find it, verily I say
unto you, he rejoiceth more of that sheep, than of the ninety
and nine which went not astray.
18:14: Even so it is not the will of your Father
which is in heaven, that one of these little ones should perish.
18:15: Moreover if thy brother shall trespass against
thee, go and tell him his fault between thee and him alone: if
he shall hear thee, thou hast gained thy brother.
18:16: But if he will not hear thee, then take with
thee one or two more, that in the mouth of two or three witnesses
every word may be established.
18:17: And if he shall neglect to hear them, tell
it unto the church: but if he neglect to hear the church, let
him be unto thee as an heathen man and a publican.
18:18: Verily I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall
bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever ye shall
loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.
18:19: Again I say unto you, That if two of you shall
agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall
be done for them of my Father which is in heaven.
18:20: For where two or three are gathered together
in my name, there am I in the midst of them.
18:21: Then came Peter to him, and said, Lord, how
oft shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? till seven
18:22: Jesus saith unto him, I say not unto thee,
Until seven times: but, Until seventy times seven.
18:23: Therefore is the kingdom of heaven likened
unto a certain king, which would take account of his servants.
18:24: And when he had begun to reckon, one was brought
unto him, which owed him ten thousand talents.
18:25: But forasmuch as he had not to pay, his lord
commanded him to be sold, and his wife, and children, and all
that he had, and payment to be made.
18:26: The servant therefore fell down, and worshipped
him, saying, Lord, have patience with me, and I will pay thee
18:27: Then the lord of that servant was moved with
compassion, and loosed him, and forgave him the debt.
18:28: But the same servant went out, and found one
of his fellowservants, which owed him an hundred pence: and he
laid hands on him, and took him by the throat, saying, Pay me
that thou owest.
18:29: And his fellowservant fell down at his feet,
and besought him, saying, Have patience with me, and I will pay
18:30: And he would not: but went and cast him into
prison, till he should pay the debt.
18:31: So when his fellowservants saw what was done,
they were very sorry, and came and told unto their lord all that
18:32: Then his lord, after that he had called him,
said unto him, O thou wicked servant, I forgave thee all that
debt, because thou desiredst me:
18:33: Shouldest not thou also have had compassion
on thy fellowservant, even as I had pity on thee?
18:34: And his lord was wroth, and delivered him
to the tormentors, till he should pay all that was due unto him.
18:35: So likewise shall my heavenly Father do also
unto you, if ye from your hearts forgive not every one his brother
19:1: And it came to pass, that when Jesus had finished
these sayings, he departed from Galilee, and came into the coasts
of Judaea beyond Jordan;
19:2: And great multitudes followed him; and he healed
19:3: The Pharisees also came unto him, tempting
him, and saying unto him, Is it lawful for a man to put away his
wife for every cause?
19:4: And he answered and said unto them, Have ye
not read, that he which made them at the beginning made them male
19:5: And said, For this cause shall a man leave
father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they twain
shall be one flesh?
19:6: Wherefore they are no more twain, but one flesh.
What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder.
19:7: They say unto him, Why did Moses then command
to give a writing of divorcement, and to put her away?
19:8: He saith unto them, Moses because of the hardness
of your hearts suffered you to put away your wives: but from the
beginning it was not so.
19:9: And I say unto you, Whosoever shall put away
his wife, except it be for fornication, and shall marry another,
committeth adultery: and whoso marrieth her which is put away
doth commit adultery.
19:10: His disciples say unto him, If the case of
the man be so with his wife, it is not good to marry.
19:11: But he said unto them, All men cannot receive
this saying, save they to whom it is given.
19:12: For there are some eunuchs, which were so
born from their mother's womb: and there are some eunuchs, which
were made eunuchs of men: and there be eunuchs, which have made
themselves eunuchs for the kingdom of heaven's sake. He that is
able to receive it, let him receive it.
19:13: Then were there brought unto him little children,
that he should put his hands on them, and pray: and the disciples
19:14: But Jesus said, Suffer little children, and
forbid them not, to come unto me: for of such is the kingdom of
19:15: And he laid his hands on them, and departed
19:16: And, behold, one came and said unto him, Good
Master, what good thing shall I do, that I may have eternal life?
19:17: And he said unto him, Why callest thou me
good? there is none good but one, that is, God: but if thou wilt
enter into life, keep the commandments.
19:18: He saith unto him, Which? Jesus said, Thou
shalt do no murder, Thou shalt not commit adultery, Thou shalt
not steal, Thou shalt not bear false witness,
19:19: Honour thy father and thy mother: and, Thou
shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.
19:20: The young man saith unto him, All these things
have I kept from my youth up: what lack I yet?
19:21: Jesus said unto him, If thou wilt be perfect,
go and sell that thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt
have treasure in heaven: and come and follow me.
19:22: But when the young man heard that saying,
he went away sorrowful: for he had great possessions.
19:23: Then said Jesus unto his disciples, Verily
I say unto you, That a rich man shall hardly enter into the kingdom
19:24: And again I say unto you, It is easier for
a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man
to enter into the kingdom of God.
19:25: When his disciples heard it, they were exceedingly
amazed, saying, Who then can be saved?
19:26: But Jesus beheld them, and said unto them,
With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible.
19:27: Then answered Peter and said unto him, Behold,
we have forsaken all, and followed thee; what shall we have therefore?
19:28: And Jesus said unto them, Verily I say unto
you, That ye which have followed me, in the regeneration when
the Son of man shall sit in the throne of his glory, ye also shall
sit upon twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel.
19:29: And every one that hath forsaken houses, or
brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children,
or lands, for my name's sake, shall receive an hundredfold, and
shall inherit everlasting life.
19:30: But many that are first shall be last; and
the last shall be first.
20:1: For the kingdom of heaven is like unto a man
that is an householder, which went out early in the morning to
hire labourers into his vineyard.
20:2: And when he had agreed with the labourers for
a penny a day, he sent them into his vineyard.
20:3: And he went out about the third hour, and saw
others standing idle in the marketplace,
20:4: And said unto them; Go ye also into the vineyard,
and whatsoever is right I will give you. And they went their way.
20:5: Again he went out about the sixth and ninth
hour, and did likewise.
20:6: And about the eleventh hour he went out, and
found others standing idle, and saith unto them, Why stand ye
here all the day idle?
20:7: They say unto him, Because no man hath hired
us. He saith unto them, Go ye also into the vineyard; and whatsoever
is right, that shall ye receive.
20:8: So when even was come, the lord of the vineyard
saith unto his steward, Call the labourers, and give them their
hire, beginning from the last unto the first.
20:9: And when they came that were hired about the
eleventh hour, they received every man a penny.
20:10: But when the first came, they supposed that
they should have received more; and they likewise received every
man a penny.
20:11: And when they had received it, they murmured
against the goodman of the house,
20:12: Saying, These last have wrought but one hour,
and thou hast made them equal unto us, which have borne the burden
and heat of the day.
20:13: But he answered one of them, and said, Friend,
I do thee no wrong: didst not thou agree with me for a penny?
20:14: Take that thine is, and go thy way: I will
give unto this last, even as unto thee.
20:15: Is it not lawful for me to do what I will
with mine own? Is thine eye evil, because I am good?
20:16: So the last shall be first, and the first
last: for many be called, but few chosen.
20:17: And Jesus going up to Jerusalem took the twelve
disciples apart in the way, and said unto them,
20:18: Behold, we go up to Jerusalem; and the Son
of man shall be betrayed unto the chief priests and unto the scribes,
and they shall condemn him to death,
20:19: And shall deliver him to the Gentiles to mock,
and to scourge, and to crucify him: and the third day he shall
20:20: Then came to him the mother of Zebedee's children
with her sons, worshipping him, and desiring a certain thing of
20:21: And he said unto her, What wilt thou? She
saith unto him, Grant that these my two sons may sit, the one
on thy right hand, and the other on the left, in thy kingdom.
20:22: But Jesus answered and said, Ye know not what
ye ask. Are ye able to drink of the cup that I shall drink of,
and to be baptized with the baptism that I am baptized with? They
say unto him, We are able.
20:23: And he saith unto them, Ye shall drink indeed
of my cup, and be baptized with the baptism that I am baptized
with: but to sit on my right hand, and on my left, is not mine
to give, but it shall be given to them for whom it is prepared
of my Father.
20:24: And when the ten heard it, they were moved
with indignation against the two brethren.
20:25: But Jesus called them unto him, and said,
Ye know that the princes of the Gentiles exercise dominion over
them, and they that are great exercise authority upon them.
20:26: But it shall not be so among you: but whosoever
will be great among you, let him be your minister;
20:27: And whosoever will be chief among you, let
him be your servant:
20:28: Even as the Son of man came not to be ministered
unto, but to minister, and to give his life a ransom for many.
20:29: And as they departed from Jericho, a great
multitude followed him.
20:30: And, behold, two blind men sitting by the
way side, when they heard that Jesus passed by, cried out, saying,
Have mercy on us, O Lord, thou Son of David.
20:31: And the multitude rebuked them, because they
should hold their peace: but they cried the more, saying, Have
mercy on us, O Lord, thou Son of David.
20:32: And Jesus stood still, and called them, and
said, What will ye that I shall do unto you?
20:33: They say unto him, Lord, that our eyes may
20:34: So Jesus had compassion on them, and touched
their eyes: and immediately their eyes received sight, and they
21:1: And when they drew nigh unto Jerusalem, and
were come to Bethphage, unto the mount of Olives, then sent Jesus
21:2: Saying unto them, Go into the village over
against you, and straightway ye shall find an ass tied, and a
colt with her: loose them, and bring them unto me.
21:3: And if any man say ought unto you, ye shall
say, The Lord hath need of them; and straightway he will send
21:4: All this was done, that it might be fulfilled
which was spoken by the prophet, saying,
21:5: Tell ye the daughter of Sion, Behold, thy King
cometh unto thee, meek, and sitting upon an ass, and a colt the
foal of an ass.
21:6: And the disciples went, and did as Jesus commanded
21:7: And brought the ass, and the colt, and put
on them their clothes, and they set him thereon.
21:8: And a very great multitude spread their garments
in the way; others cut down branches from the trees, and strawed
them in the way.
21:9: And the multitudes that went before, and that
followed, cried, saying, Hosanna to the Son of David: Blessed
is he that cometh in the name of the Lord; Hosanna in the highest.
21:10: And when he was come into Jerusalem, all the
city was moved, saying, Who is this?
21:11: And the multitude said, This is Jesus the
prophet of Nazareth of Galilee.
21:12: And Jesus went into the temple of God, and
cast out all them that sold and bought in the temple, and overthrew
the tables of the moneychangers, and the seats of them that sold
21:13: And said unto them, It is written, My house
shall be called the house of prayer; but ye have made it a den
21:14: And the blind and the lame came to him in
the temple; and he healed them.
21:15: And when the chief priests and scribes saw
the wonderful things that he did, and the children crying in the
temple, and saying, Hosanna to the Son of David; they were sore
21:16: And said unto him, Hearest thou what these
say? And Jesus saith unto them, Yea; have ye never read, Out of
the mouth of babes and sucklings thou hast perfected praise?
21:17: And he left them, and went out of the city
into Bethany; and he lodged there.
21:18: Now in the morning as he returned into the
city, he hungered.
21:19: And when he saw a fig tree in the way, he
came to it, and found nothing thereon, but leaves only, and said
unto it, Let no fruit grow on thee henceforward for ever. And
presently the fig tree withered away.
21:20: And when the disciples saw it, they marvelled,
saying, How soon is the fig tree withered away!
21:21: Jesus answered and said unto them, Verily
I say unto you, If ye have faith, and doubt not, ye shall not
only do this which is done to the fig tree, but also if ye shall
say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into
the sea; it shall be done.
21:22: And all things, whatsoever ye shall ask in
prayer, believing, ye shall receive.
21:23: And when he was come into the temple, the
chief priests and the elders of the people came unto him as he
was teaching, and said, By what authority doest thou these things?
and who gave thee this authority?
21:24: And Jesus answered and said unto them, I also
will ask you one thing, which if ye tell me, I in like wise will
tell you by what authority I do these things.
21:25: The baptism of John, whence was it? from heaven,
or of men? And they reasoned with themselves, saying, If we shall
say, From heaven; he will say unto us, Why did ye not then believe
21:26: But if we shall say, Of men; we fear the people;
for all hold John as a prophet.
21:27: And they answered Jesus, and said, We cannot
tell. And he said unto them, Neither tell I you by what authority
I do these things.
21:28: But what think ye? A certain man had two sons;
and he came to the first, and said, Son, go work to day in my
21:29: He answered and said, I will not: but afterward
he repented, and went.
21:30: And he came to the second, and said likewise.
And he answered and said, I go, sir: and went not.
21:31: Whether of them twain did the will of his
father? They say unto him, The first. Jesus saith unto them, Verily
I say unto you, That the publicans and the harlots go into the
kingdom of God before you.
21:32: For John came unto you in the way of righteousness,
and ye believed him not: but the publicans and the harlots believed
him: and ye, when ye had seen it, repented not afterward, that
ye might believe him.
21:33: Hear another parable: There was a certain
householder, which planted a vineyard, and hedged it round about,
and digged a winepress in it, and built a tower, and let it out
to husbandmen, and went into a far country:
21:34: And when the time of the fruit drew near,
he sent his servants to the husbandmen, that they might receive
the fruits of it.
21:35: And the husbandmen took his servants, and
beat one, and killed another, and stoned another.
21:36: Again, he sent other servants more than the
first: and they did unto them likewise.
21:37: But last of all he sent unto them his son,
saying, They will reverence my son.
21:38: But when the husbandmen saw the son, they
said among themselves, This is the heir; come, let us kill him,
and let us seize on his inheritance.
21:39: And they caught him, and cast him out of the
vineyard, and slew him.
21:40: When the lord therefore of the vineyard cometh,
what will he do unto those husbandmen?
21:41: They say unto him, He will miserably destroy
those wicked men, and will let out his vineyard unto other husbandmen,
which shall render him the fruits in their seasons.
21:42: Jesus saith unto them, Did ye never read in
the scriptures, The stone which the builders rejected, the same
is become the head of the corner: this is the Lord's doing, and
it is marvellous in our eyes?
21:43: Therefore say I unto you, The kingdom of God
shall be taken from you, and given to a nation bringing forth
the fruits thereof.
21:44: And whosoever shall fall on this stone shall
be broken: but on whomsoever it shall fall, it will grind him
21:45: And when the chief priests and Pharisees had
heard his parables, they perceived that he spake of them.
21:46: But when they sought to lay hands on him,
they feared the multitude, because they took him for a prophet.
22:1: And Jesus answered and spake unto them again
by parables, and said,
22:2: The kingdom of heaven is like unto a certain
king, which made a marriage for his son,
22:3: And sent forth his servants to call them that
were bidden to the wedding: and they would not come.
22:4: Again, he sent forth other servants, saying,
Tell them which are bidden, Behold, I have prepared my dinner:
my oxen and my fatlings are killed, and all things are ready:
come unto the marriage.
22:5: But they made light of it, and went their ways,
one to his farm, another to his merchandise:
22:6: And the remnant took his servants, and entreated
them spitefully, and slew them.
22:7: But when the king heard thereof, he was wroth:
and he sent forth his armies, and destroyed those murderers, and
burned up their city.
22:8: Then saith he to his servants, The wedding
is ready, but they which were bidden were not worthy.
22:9: Go ye therefore into the highways, and as many
as ye shall find, bid to the marriage.
22:10: So those servants went out into the highways,
and gathered together all as many as they found, both bad and
good: and the wedding was furnished with guests.
22:11: And when the king came in to see the guests,
he saw there a man which had not on a wedding garment:
22:12: And he saith unto him, Friend, how camest
thou in hither not having a wedding garment? And he was speechless.
22:13: Then said the king to the servants, Bind him
hand and foot, and take him away, and cast him into outer darkness;
there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
22:14: For many are called, but few are chosen.
22:15: Then went the Pharisees, and took counsel
how they might entangle him in his talk.
22:16: And they sent out unto him their disciples
with the Herodians, saying, Master, we know that thou art true,
and teachest the way of God in truth, neither carest thou for
any man: for thou regardest not the person of men.
22:17: Tell us therefore, What thinkest thou? Is
it lawful to give tribute unto Caesar, or not?
22:18: But Jesus perceived their wickedness, and
said, Why tempt ye me, ye hypocrites?
22:19: Shew me the tribute money. And they brought
unto him a penny.
22:20: And he saith unto them, Whose is this image
22:21: They say unto him, Caesar's. Then saith he
unto them, Render therefore unto Caesar the things which are Caesar's;
and unto God the things that are God's.
22:22: When they had heard these words, they marvelled,
and left him, and went their way.
22:23: The same day came to him the Sadducees, which
say that there is no resurrection, and asked him,
22:24: Saying, Master, Moses said, If a man die,
having no children, his brother shall marry his wife, and raise
up seed unto his brother.
22:25: Now there were with us seven brethren: and
the first, when he had married a wife, deceased, and, having no
issue, left his wife unto his brother:
22:26: Likewise the second also, and the third, unto
22:27: And last of all the woman died also.
22:28: Therefore in the resurrection whose wife shall
she be of the seven? for they all had her.
22:29: Jesus answered and said unto them, Ye do err,
not knowing the scriptures, nor the power of God.
22:30: For in the resurrection they neither marry,
nor are given in marriage, but are as the angels of God in heaven.
22:31: But as touching the resurrection of the dead,
have ye not read that which was spoken unto you by God, saying,
22:32: I am the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac,
and the God of Jacob? God is not the God of the dead, but of the
22:33: And when the multitude heard this, they were
astonished at his doctrine.
22:34: But when the Pharisees had heard that he had
put the Sadducees to silence, they were gathered together.
22:35: Then one of them, which was a lawyer, asked
him a question, tempting him, and saying,
22:36: Master, which is the great commandment in
22:37: Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord
thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all
22:38: This is the first and great commandment.
22:39: And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt
love thy neighbour as thyself.
22:40: On these two commandments hang all the law
and the prophets.
22:41: While the Pharisees were gathered together,
Jesus asked them,
22:42: Saying, What think ye of Christ? whose son
is he? They say unto him, The Son of David.
22:43: He saith unto them, How then doth David in
spirit call him Lord, saying,
22:44: The LORD said unto my Lord, Sit thou on my
right hand, till I make thine enemies thy footstool?
22:45: If David then call him Lord, how is he his
22:46: And no man was able to answer him a word,
neither durst any man from that day forth ask him any more questions.
23:1: Then spake Jesus to the multitude, and to his
23:2: Saying, The scribes and the Pharisees sit in
23:3: All therefore whatsoever they bid you observe,
that observe and do; but do not ye after their works: for they
say, and do not.
23:4: For they bind heavy burdens and grievous to
be borne, and lay them on men's shoulders; but they themselves
will not move them with one of their fingers.
23:5: But all their works they do for to be seen
of men: they make broad their phylacteries, and enlarge the borders
of their garments,
23:6: And love the uppermost rooms at feasts, and
the chief seats in the synagogues,
23:7: And greetings in the markets, and to be called
of men, Rabbi, Rabbi.
23:8: But be not ye called Rabbi: for one is your
Master, even Christ; and all ye are brethren.
23:9: And call no man your father upon the earth:
for one is your Father, which is in heaven.
23:10: Neither be ye called masters: for one is your
Master, even Christ.
23:11: But he that is greatest among you shall be
23:12: And whosoever shall exalt himself shall be
abased; and he that shall humble himself shall be exalted.
23:13: But woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites!
for ye shut up the kingdom of heaven against men: for ye neither
go in yourselves, neither suffer ye them that are entering to
23:14: Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites!
for ye devour widows' houses, and for a pretence make long prayer:
therefore ye shall receive the greater damnation.
23:15: Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites!
for ye compass sea and land to make one proselyte, and when he
is made, ye make him twofold more the child of hell than yourselves.
23:16: Woe unto you, ye blind guides, which say,
Whosoever shall swear by the temple, it is nothing; but whosoever
shall swear by the gold of the temple, he is a debtor!
23:17: Ye fools and blind: for whether is greater,
the gold, or the temple that sanctifieth the gold?
23:18: And, Whosoever shall swear by the altar, it
is nothing; but whosoever sweareth by the gift that is upon it,
he is guilty.
23:19: Ye fools and blind: for whether is greater,
the gift, or the altar that sanctifieth the gift?
23:20: Whoso therefore shall swear by the altar,
sweareth by it, and by all things thereon.
23:21: And whoso shall swear by the temple, sweareth
by it, and by him that dwelleth therein.
23:22: And he that shall swear by heaven, sweareth
by the throne of God, and by him that sitteth thereon.
23:23: Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites!
for ye pay tithe of mint and anise and cummin, and have omitted
the weightier matters of the law, judgment, mercy, and faith:
these ought ye to have done, and not to leave the other undone.
23:24: Ye blind guides, which strain at a gnat, and
swallow a camel.
23:25: Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites!
for ye make clean the outside of the cup and of the platter, but
within they are full of extortion and excess.
23:26: Thou blind Pharisee, cleanse first that which
is within the cup and platter, that the outside of them may be
23:27: Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites!
for ye are like unto whited sepulchres, which indeed appear beautiful
outward, but are within full of dead men's bones, and of all uncleanness.
23:28: Even so ye also outwardly appear righteous
unto men, but within ye are full of hypocrisy and iniquity.
23:29: Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites!
because ye build the tombs of the prophets, and garnish the sepulchres
of the righteous,
23:30: And say, If we had been in the days of our
fathers, we would not have been partakers with them in the blood
of the prophets.
23:31: Wherefore ye be witnesses unto yourselves,
that ye are the children of them which killed the prophets.
23:32: Fill ye up then the measure of your fathers.
23:33: Ye serpents, ye generation of vipers, how
can ye escape the damnation of hell?
23:34: Wherefore, behold, I send unto you prophets,
and wise men, and scribes: and some of them ye shall kill and
crucify; and some of them shall ye scourge in your synagogues,
and persecute them from city to city:
23:35: That upon you may come all the righteous blood
shed upon the earth, from the blood of righteous Abel unto the
blood of Zacharias son of Barachias, whom ye slew between the
temple and the altar.
23:36: Verily I say unto you, All these things shall
come upon this generation.
23:37: O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, thou that killest
the prophets, and stonest them which are sent unto thee, how often
would I have gathered thy children together, even as a hen gathereth
her chickens under her wings, and ye would not!
23:38: Behold, your house is left unto you desolate.
23:39: For I say unto you, Ye shall not see me henceforth,
till ye shall say, Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the
24:1: And Jesus went out, and departed from the temple:
and his disciples came to him for to shew him the buildings of
24:2: And Jesus said unto them, See ye not all these
things? verily I say unto you, There shall not be left here one
stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down.
24:3: And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the
disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall
these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and
of the end of the world?
24:4: And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take
heed that no man deceive you.
24:5: For many shall come in my name, saying, I am
Christ; and shall deceive many.
24:6: And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars:
see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to
pass, but the end is not yet.
24:7: For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom
against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences,
and earthquakes, in divers places.
24:8: All these are the beginning of sorrows.
24:9: Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted,
and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my
24:10: And then shall many be offended, and shall
betray one another, and shall hate one another.
24:11: And many false prophets shall rise, and shall
24:12: And because iniquity shall abound, the love
of many shall wax cold.
24:13: But he that shall endure unto the end, the
same shall be saved.
24:14: And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached
in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall
the end come.
24:15: When ye therefore shall see the abomination
of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy
place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:)
24:16: Then let them which be in Judaea flee into
24:17: Let him which is on the housetop not come
down to take any thing out of his house:
24:18: Neither let him which is in the field return
back to take his clothes.
24:19: And woe unto them that are with child, and
to them that give suck in those days!
24:20: But pray ye that your flight be not in the
winter, neither on the sabbath day:
24:21: For then shall be great tribulation, such
as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no,
nor ever shall be.
24:22: And except those days should be shortened,
there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect's sake those
days shall be shortened.
24:23: Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here
is Christ, or there; believe it not.
24:24: For there shall arise false Christs, and false
prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that,
if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.
24:25: Behold, I have told you before.
24:26: Wherefore if they shall say unto you, Behold,
he is in the desert; go not forth: behold, he is in the secret
chambers; believe it not.
24:27: For as the lightning cometh out of the east,
and shineth even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the
Son of man be.
24:28: For wheresoever the carcase is, there will
the eagles be gathered together.
24:29: Immediately after the tribulation of those
days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her
light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of
the heavens shall be shaken:
24:30: And then shall appear the sign of the Son
of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn,
and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven
with power and great glory.
24:31: And he shall send his angels with a great
sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from
the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.
24:32: Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When
his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that
summer is nigh:
24:33: So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these
things, know that it is near, even at the doors.
24:34: Verily I say unto you, This generation shall
not pass, till all these things be fulfilled.
24:35: Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words
shall not pass away.
24:36: But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no,
not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.
24:37: But as the days of Noe were, so shall also
the coming of the Son of man be.
24:38: For as in the days that were before the flood
they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage,
until the day that Noe entered into the ark,
24:39: And knew not until the flood came, and took
them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
24:40: Then shall two be in the field; the one shall
be taken, and the other left.
24:41: Two women shall be grinding at the mill; the
one shall be taken, and the other left.
24:42: Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour
your Lord doth come.
24:43: But know this, that if the goodman of the
house had known in what watch the thief would come, he would have
watched, and would not have suffered his house to be broken up.
24:44: Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an
hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh.
24:45: Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom
his lord hath made ruler over his household, to give them meat
in due season?
24:46: Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when
he cometh shall find so doing.
24:47: Verily I say unto you, That he shall make
him ruler over all his goods.
24:48: But and if that evil servant shall say in
his heart, My lord delayeth his coming;
24:49: And shall begin to smite his fellowservants,
and to eat and drink with the drunken;
24:50: The lord of that servant shall come in a day
when he looketh not for him, and in an hour that he is not aware
24:51: And shall cut him asunder, and appoint him
his portion with the hypocrites: there shall be weeping and gnashing
25:1: Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened
unto ten virgins, which took their lamps, and went forth to meet
25:2: And five of them were wise, and five were foolish.
25:3: They that were foolish took their lamps, and
took no oil with them:
25:4: But the wise took oil in their vessels with
25:5: While the bridegroom tarried, they all slumbered
25:6: And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold,
the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him.
25:7: Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their
25:8: And the foolish said unto the wise, Give us
of your oil; for our lamps are gone out.
25:9: But the wise answered, saying, Not so; lest
there be not enough for us and you: but go ye rather to them that
sell, and buy for yourselves.
25:10: And while they went to buy, the bridegroom
came; and they that were ready went in with him to the marriage:
and the door was shut.
25:11: Afterward came also the other virgins, saying,
Lord, Lord, open to us.
25:12: But he answered and said, Verily I say unto
you, I know you not.
25:13: Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day
nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh.
25:14: For the kingdom of heaven is as a man travelling
into a far country, who called his own servants, and delivered
unto them his goods.
25:15: And unto one he gave five talents, to another
two, and to another one; to every man according to his several
ability; and straightway took his journey.
25:16: Then he that had received the five talents
went and traded with the same, and made them other five talents.
25:17: And likewise he that had received two, he
also gained other two.
25:18: But he that had received one went and digged
in the earth, and hid his lord's money.
25:19: After a long time the lord of those servants
cometh, and reckoneth with them.
25:20: And so he that had received five talents came
and brought other five talents, saying, Lord, thou deliveredst
unto me five talents: behold, I have gained beside them five talents
25:21: His lord said unto him, Well done, thou good
and faithful servant: thou hast been faithful over a few things,
I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy
of thy lord.
25:22: He also that had received two talents came
and said, Lord, thou deliveredst unto me two talents: behold,
I have gained two other talents beside them.
25:23: His lord said unto him, Well done, good and
faithful servant; thou hast been faithful over a few things, I
will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy
of thy lord.
25:24: Then he which had received the one talent
came and said, Lord, I knew thee that thou art an hard man, reaping
where thou hast not sown, and gathering where thou hast not strawed:
25:25: And I was afraid, and went and hid thy talent
in the earth: lo, there thou hast that is thine.
25:26: His lord answered and said unto him, Thou
wicked and slothful servant, thou knewest that I reap where I
sowed not, and gather where I have not strawed:
25:27: Thou oughtest therefore to have put my money
to the exchangers, and then at my coming I should have received
mine own with usury.
25:28: Take therefore the talent from him, and give
it unto him which hath ten talents.
25:29: For unto every one that hath shall be given,
and he shall have abundance: but from him that hath not shall
be taken away even that which he hath.
25:30: And cast ye the unprofitable servant into
outer darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
25:31: When the Son of man shall come in his glory,
and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne
of his glory:
25:32: And before him shall be gathered all nations:
and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth
his sheep from the goats:
25:33: And he shall set the sheep on his right hand,
but the goats on the left.
25:34: Then shall the King say unto them on his right
hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared
for you from the foundation of the world:
25:35: For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat:
I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye
took me in:
25:36: Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and
ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me.
25:37: Then shall the righteous answer him, saying,
Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, and fed thee? or thirsty, and
gave thee drink?
25:38: When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee
in? or naked, and clothed thee?
25:39: Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and
came unto thee?
25:40: And the King shall answer and say unto them,
Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of
the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.
25:41: Then shall he say also unto them on the left
hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared
for the devil and his angels:
25:42: For I was an hungred, and ye gave me no meat:
I was thirsty, and ye gave me no drink:
25:43: I was a stranger, and ye took me not in: naked,
and ye clothed me not: sick, and in prison, and ye visited me
25:44: Then shall they also answer him, saying, Lord,
when saw we thee an hungred, or athirst, or a stranger, or naked,
or sick, or in prison, and did not minister unto thee?
25:45: Then shall he answer them, saying, Verily
I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye did it not to one of the least
of these, ye did it not to me.
25:46: And these shall go away into everlasting punishment:
but the righteous into life eternal.
26:1: And it came to pass, when Jesus had finished
all these sayings, he said unto his disciples,
26:2: Ye know that after two days is the feast of
the passover, and the Son of man is betrayed to be crucified.
26:3: Then assembled together the chief priests,
and the scribes, and the elders of the people, unto the palace
of the high priest, who was called Caiaphas,
26:4: And consulted that they might take Jesus by
subtilty, and kill him.
26:5: But they said, Not on the feast day, lest there
be an uproar among the people.
26:6: Now when Jesus was in Bethany, in the house
of Simon the leper,
26:7: There came unto him a woman having an alabaster
box of very precious ointment, and poured it on his head, as he
sat at meat.
26:8: But when his disciples saw it, they had indignation,
saying, To what purpose is this waste?
26:9: For this ointment might have been sold for
much, and given to the poor.
26:10: When Jesus understood it, he said unto them,
Why trouble ye the woman? for she hath wrought a good work upon
26:11: For ye have the poor always with you; but
me ye have not always.
26:12: For in that she hath poured this ointment
on my body, she did it for my burial.
26:13: Verily I say unto you, Wheresoever this gospel
shall be preached in the whole world, there shall also this, that
this woman hath done, be told for a memorial of her.
26:14: Then one of the twelve, called Judas Iscariot,
went unto the chief priests,
26:15: And said unto them, What will ye give me,
and I will deliver him unto you? And they covenanted with him
for thirty pieces of silver.
26:16: And from that time he sought opportunity to
26:17: Now the first day of the feast of unleavened
bread the disciples came to Jesus, saying unto him, Where wilt
thou that we prepare for thee to eat the passover?
26:18: And he said, Go into the city to such a man,
and say unto him, The Master saith, My time is at hand; I will
keep the passover at thy house with my disciples.
26:19: And the disciples did as Jesus had appointed
them; and they made ready the passover.
26:20: Now when the even was come, he sat down with
26:21: And as they did eat, he said, Verily I say
unto you, that one of you shall betray me.
26:22: And they were exceeding sorrowful, and began
every one of them to say unto him, Lord, is it I?
26:23: And he answered and said, He that dippeth
his hand with me in the dish, the same shall betray me.
26:24: The Son of man goeth as it is written of him:
but woe unto that man by whom the Son of man is betrayed! it had
been good for that man if he had not been born.
26:25: Then Judas, which betrayed him, answered and
said, Master, is it I? He said unto him, Thou hast said.
26:26: And as they were eating, Jesus took bread,
and blessed it, and brake it, and gave it to the disciples, and
said, Take, eat; this is my body.
26:27: And he took the cup, and gave thanks, and
gave it to them, saying, Drink ye all of it;
26:28: For this is my blood of the new testament,
which is shed for many for the remission of sins.
26:29: But I say unto you, I will not drink henceforth
of this fruit of the vine, until that day when I drink it new
with you in my Father's kingdom.
26:30: And when they had sung an hymn, they went
out into the mount of Olives.
26:31: Then saith Jesus unto them, All ye shall be
offended because of me this night: for it is written, I will smite
the shepherd, and the sheep of the flock shall be scattered abroad.
26:32: But after I am risen again, I will go before
you into Galilee.
26:33: Peter answered and said unto him, Though all
men shall be offended because of thee, yet will I never be offended.
26:34: Jesus said unto him, Verily I say unto thee,
That this night, before the cock crow, thou shalt deny me thrice.
26:35: Peter said unto him, Though I should die with
thee, yet will I not deny thee. Likewise also said all the disciples.
26:36: Then cometh Jesus with them unto a place called
Gethsemane, and saith unto the disciples, Sit ye here, while I
go and pray yonder.
26:37: And he took with him Peter and the two sons
of Zebedee, and began to be sorrowful and very heavy.
26:38: Then saith he unto them, My soul is exceeding
sorrowful, even unto death: tarry ye here, and watch with me.
26:39: And he went a little further, and fell on
his face, and prayed, saying, O my Father, if it be possible,
let this cup pass from me: nevertheless not as I will, but as
26:40: And he cometh unto the disciples, and findeth
them asleep, and saith unto Peter, What, could ye not watch with
me one hour?
26:41: Watch and pray, that ye enter not into temptation:
the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.
26:42: He went away again the second time, and prayed,
saying, O my Father, if this cup may not pass away from me, except
I drink it, thy will be done.
26:43: And he came and found them asleep again: for
their eyes were heavy.
26:44: And he left them, and went away again, and
prayed the third time, saying the same words.
26:45: Then cometh he to his disciples, and saith
unto them, Sleep on now, and take your rest: behold, the hour
is at hand, and the Son of man is betrayed into the hands of sinners.
26:46: Rise, let us be going: behold, he is at hand
that doth betray me.
26:47: And while he yet spake, lo, Judas, one of
the twelve, came, and with him a great multitude with swords and
staves, from the chief priests and elders of the people.
26:48: Now he that betrayed him gave them a sign,
saying, Whomsoever I shall kiss, that same is he: hold him fast.
26:49: And forthwith he came to Jesus, and said,
Hail, master; and kissed him.
26:50: And Jesus said unto him, Friend, wherefore
art thou come? Then came they, and laid hands on Jesus, and took
26:51: And, behold, one of them which were with Jesus
stretched out his hand, and drew his sword, and struck a servant
of the high priest's, and smote off his ear.
26:52: Then said Jesus unto him, Put up again thy
sword into his place: for all they that take the sword shall perish
with the sword.
26:53: Thinkest thou that I cannot now pray to my
Father, and he shall presently give me more than twelve legions
26:54: But how then shall the scriptures be fulfilled,
that thus it must be?
26:55: In that same hour said Jesus to the multitudes,
Are ye come out as against a thief with swords and staves for
to take me? I sat daily with you teaching in the temple, and ye
laid no hold on me.
26:56: But all this was done, that the scriptures
of the prophets might be fulfilled. Then all the disciples forsook
him, and fled.
26:57: And they that had laid hold on Jesus led him
away to Caiaphas the high priest, where the scribes and the elders
26:58: But Peter followed him afar off unto the high
priest's palace, and went in, and sat with the servants, to see
26:59: Now the chief priests, and elders, and all
the council, sought false witness against Jesus, to put him to
26:60: But found none: yea, though many false witnesses
came, yet found they none. At the last came two false witnesses,
26:61: And said, This fellow said, I am able to destroy
the temple of God, and to build it in three days.
26:62: And the high priest arose, and said unto him,
Answerest thou nothing? what is it which these witness against
26:63: But Jesus held his peace. And the high priest
answered and said unto him, I adjure thee by the living God, that
thou tell us whether thou be the Christ, the Son of God.
26:64: Jesus saith unto him, Thou hast said: nevertheless
I say unto you, Hereafter shall ye see the Son of man sitting
on the right hand of power, and coming in the clouds of heaven.
26:65: Then the high priest rent his clothes, saying,
He hath spoken blasphemy; what further need have we of witnesses?
behold, now ye have heard his blasphemy.
26:66: What think ye? They answered and said, He
is guilty of death.
26:67: Then did they spit in his face, and buffeted
him; and others smote him with the palms of their hands,
26:68: Saying, Prophesy unto us, thou Christ, Who
is he that smote thee?
26:69: Now Peter sat without in the palace: and a
damsel came unto him, saying, Thou also wast with Jesus of Galilee.
26:70: But he denied before them all, saying, I know
not what thou sayest.
26:71: And when he was gone out into the porch, another
maid saw him, and said unto them that were there, This fellow
was also with Jesus of Nazareth.
26:72: And again he denied with an oath, I do not
know the man.
26:73: And after a while came unto him they that
stood by, and said to Peter, Surely thou also art one of them;
for thy speech bewrayeth thee.
26:74: Then began he to curse and to swear, saying,
I know not the man. And immediately the cock crew.
26:75: And Peter remembered the word of Jesus, which
said unto him, Before the cock crow, thou shalt deny me thrice.
And he went out, and wept bitterly.
27:1: When the morning was come, all the chief priests
and elders of the people took counsel against Jesus to put him
27:2: And when they had bound him, they led him away,
and delivered him to Pontius Pilate the governor.
27:3: Then Judas, which had betrayed him, when he
saw that he was condemned, repented himself, and brought again
the thirty pieces of silver to the chief priests and elders,
27:4: Saying, I have sinned in that I have betrayed
the innocent blood. And they said, What is that to us? see thou
27:5: And he cast down the pieces of silver in the
temple, and departed, and went and hanged himself.
27:6: And the chief priests took the silver pieces,
and said, It is not lawful for to put them into the treasury,
because it is the price of blood.
27:7: And they took counsel, and bought with them
the potter's field, to bury strangers in.
27:8: Wherefore that field was called, The field
of blood, unto this day.
27:9: Then was fulfilled that which was spoken by
Jeremy the prophet, saying, And they took the thirty pieces of
silver, the price of him that was valued, whom they of the children
of Israel did value;
27:10: And gave them for the potter's field, as the
Lord appointed me.
27:11: And Jesus stood before the governor: and the
governor asked him, saying, Art thou the King of the Jews? And
Jesus said unto him, Thou sayest.
27:12: And when he was accused of the chief priests
and elders, he answered nothing.
27:13: Then said Pilate unto him, Hearest thou not
how many things they witness against thee?
27:14: And he answered him to never a word; insomuch
that the governor marvelled greatly.
27:15: Now at that feast the governor was wont to
release unto the people a prisoner, whom they would.
27:16: And they had then a notable prisoner, called
27:17: Therefore when they were gathered together,
Pilate said unto them, Whom will ye that I release unto you? Barabbas,
or Jesus which is called Christ?
27:18: For he knew that for envy they had delivered
27:19: When he was set down on the judgment seat,
his wife sent unto him, saying, Have thou nothing to do with that
just man: for I have suffered many things this day in a dream
because of him.
27:20: But the chief priests and elders persuaded
the multitude that they should ask Barabbas, and destroy Jesus.
27:21: The governor answered and said unto them,
Whether of the twain will ye that I release unto you? They said,
27:22: Pilate saith unto them, What shall I do then
with Jesus which is called Christ? They all say unto him, Let
him be crucified.
27:23: And the governor said, Why, what evil hath
he done? But they cried out the more, saying, Let him be crucified.
27:24: When Pilate saw that he could prevail nothing,
but that rather a tumult was made, he took water, and washed his
hands before the multitude, saying, I am innocent of the blood
of this just person: see ye to it.
27:25: Then answered all the people, and said, His
blood be on us, and on our children.
27:26: Then released he Barabbas unto them: and when
he had scourged Jesus, he delivered him to be crucified.
27:27: Then the soldiers of the governor took Jesus
into the common hall, and gathered unto him the whole band of
27:28: And they stripped him, and put on him a scarlet
27:29: And when they had platted a crown of thorns,
they put it upon his head, and a reed in his right hand: and they
bowed the knee before him, and mocked him, saying, Hail, King
of the Jews!
27:30: And they spit upon him, and took the reed,
and smote him on the head.
27:31: And after that they had mocked him, they took
the robe off from him, and put his own raiment on him, and led
him away to crucify him.
27:32: And as they came out, they found a man of
Cyrene, Simon by name: him they compelled to bear his cross.
27:33: And when they were come unto a place called
Golgotha, that is to say, a place of a skull,
27:34: They gave him vinegar to drink mingled with
gall: and when he had tasted thereof, he would not drink.
27:35: And they crucified him, and parted his garments,
casting lots: that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the
prophet, They parted my garments among them, and upon my vesture
did they cast lots.
27:36: And sitting down they watched him there;
27:37: And set up over his head his accusation written,
THIS IS JESUS THE KING OF THE JEWS.
27:38: Then were there two thieves crucified with
him, one on the right hand, and another on the left.
27:39: And they that passed by reviled him, wagging
27:40: And saying, Thou that destroyest the temple,
and buildest it in three days, save thyself. If thou be the Son
of God, come down from the cross.
27:41: Likewise also the chief priests mocking him,
with the scribes and elders, said,
27:42: He saved others; himself he cannot save. If
he be the King of Israel, let him now come down from the cross,
and we will believe him.
27:43: He trusted in God; let him deliver him now,
if he will have him: for he said, I am the Son of God.
27:44: The thieves also, which were crucified with
him, cast the same in his teeth.
27:45: Now from the sixth hour there was darkness
over all the land unto the ninth hour.
27:46: And about the ninth hour Jesus cried with
a loud voice, saying, Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani? that is to say,
My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?
27:47: Some of them that stood there, when they heard
that, said, This man calleth for Elias.
27:48: And straightway one of them ran, and took
a spunge, and filled it with vinegar, and put it on a reed, and
gave him to drink.
27:49: The rest said, Let be, let us see whether
Elias will come to save him.
27:50: Jesus, when he had cried again with a loud
voice, yielded up the ghost.
27:51: And, behold, the veil of the temple was rent
in twain from the top to the bottom; and the earth did quake,
and the rocks rent;
27:52: And the graves were opened; and many bodies
of the saints which slept arose,
27:53: And came out of the graves after his resurrection,
and went into the holy city, and appeared unto many.
27:54: Now when the centurion, and they that were
with him, watching Jesus, saw the earthquake, and those things
that were done, they feared greatly, saying, Truly this was the
Son of God.
27:55: And many women were there beholding afar off,
which followed Jesus from Galilee, ministering unto him:
27:56: Among which was Mary Magdalene, and Mary the
mother of James and Joses, and the mother of Zebedee's children.
27:57: When the even was come, there came a rich
man of Arimathaea, named Joseph, who also himself was Jesus' disciple:
27:58: He went to Pilate, and begged the body of
Jesus. Then Pilate commanded the body to be delivered.
27:59: And when Joseph had taken the body, he wrapped
it in a clean linen cloth,
27:60: And laid it in his own new tomb, which he
had hewn out in the rock: and he rolled a great stone to the door
of the sepulchre, and departed.
27:61: And there was Mary Magdalene, and the other
Mary, sitting over against the sepulchre.
27:62: Now the next day, that followed the day of
the preparation, the chief priests and Pharisees came together
27:63: Saying, Sir, we remember that that deceiver
said, while he was yet alive, After three days I will rise again.
27:64: Command therefore that the sepulchre be made
sure until the third day, lest his disciples come by night, and
steal him away, and say unto the people, He is risen from the
dead: so the last error shall be worse than the first.
27:65: Pilate said unto them, Ye have a watch: go
your way, make it as sure as ye can.
27:66: So they went, and made the sepulchre sure,
sealing the stone, and setting a watch.
28:1: In the end of the sabbath, as it began to dawn
toward the first day of the week, came Mary Magdalene and the
other Mary to see the sepulchre.
28:2: And, behold, there was a great earthquake:
for the angel of the Lord descended from heaven, and came and
rolled back the stone from the door, and sat upon it.
28:3: His countenance was like lightning, and his
raiment white as snow:
28:4: And for fear of him the keepers did shake,
and became as dead men.
28:5: And the angel answered and said unto the women,
Fear not ye: for I know that ye seek Jesus, which was crucified.
28:6: He is not here: for he is risen, as he said.
Come, see the place where the Lord lay.
28:7: And go quickly, and tell his disciples that
he is risen from the dead; and, behold, he goeth before you into
Galilee; there shall ye see him: lo, I have told you.
28:8: And they departed quickly from the sepulchre
with fear and great joy; and did run to bring his disciples word.
28:9: And as they went to tell his disciples, behold,
Jesus met them, saying, All hail. And they came and held him by
the feet, and worshipped him.
28:10: Then said Jesus unto them, Be not afraid:
go tell my brethren that they go into Galilee, and there shall
they see me.
28:11: Now when they were going, behold, some of
the watch came into the city, and shewed unto the chief priests
all the things that were done.
28:12: And when they were assembled with the elders,
and had taken counsel, they gave large money unto the soldiers,
28:13: Saying, Say ye, His disciples came by night,
and stole him away while we slept.
28:14: And if this come to the governor's ears, we
will persuade him, and secure you.
28:15: So they took the money, and did as they were
taught: and this saying is commonly reported among the Jews until
28:16: Then the eleven disciples went away into Galilee,
into a mountain where Jesus had appointed them.
28:17: And when they saw him, they worshipped him:
but some doubted.
28:18: And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying,
All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.
28:19: Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing
them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy
28:20: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever
I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto
the end of the world. Amen.
