INTRODUCTION. 



HUCK S SYNOPSIS is a German harmony of the First Three Gospels. The 
Greek text of the Gospels is arranged in three parallel columns, with the parallelism of 
every phrase and word showing in detail. In this translation, the American Revision 
is used instead of the Greek text. " Huck s volume is probably the best thing we have 
in its class." This is the opinion of a leading American scholar. 

Between the First Three Gospels on the one hand and the Book of John on 
the other, there is a wide difference in material, in purpose, and in point of view. 
Whether there be little or much significance in these differences, there is, at any rate, 
a growing disposition on the part of all New Testament scholars to study the Synoptic 
and the Johannine records separately. To those who ponder over these differences and 
their significances, this book will doubtless be welcome. 

It will also be welcome to those who are interested in the relation of Matthew, Mark, 
and Luke to one another, and in the problem of their sources. The work is based on the 
theory that Mark is the original document. It shows, at a glance, how the Mark and 
the Logia sources were worked together into Matthew and Luke, and also the 
additional material derived from neither of these two sources. It suggests the question, 
Why is not the material of the "Introduction" and the "Jesus Risen" sections found 
in Mark, nor at all in duplicate ? Often a word, phrase, or section is inserted in one 
column only ; sometimes there are significant omissions from one of the columns. 
These appear at a glance, and they always raise the question, Why? If the Mark 
arrangement, which Huck follows in the Synopsis, be accepted as chronological, we 
have an order of events very suggestive as compared with that given in harmonies of 
the four Gospels. 

The Old Testament Quotations (see Appendix) show, in tabulated form, the 
Hebrew character of Matthew. The Johannine Parallels suggest the question, Why 
does John duplicate riearly twice as much material from four chapters of Mark (xii-xv, 
with parallels) as from all the other Synoptic Gospels combined ? The Parallels and 
Duplicates raise the query, \Vhy are these particular passages, nearly all of a peculiar 
and similar nature, so frequently imbedded in the Synoptic stratum ? 

The suggestiveness of this Synopsis to those who take pleasure in inquiry into 
the questions suggested above, is my apology for presenting it in English. Incident 
ally, it is a reference table of parallel passages, and contains excellent outlines of the 
discourse sections.

INTRODUCTION. 



The Prologue. 

I: 1-4. 

1 Forasmuch as many have 
taken in hand to draw up a narra 
tive concerning those matters 
which have been * fulfilled among 
us, 2 even as they delivered them 
unto us, who from the beginning 
were eyewitnesses and ministers of 
the word, 3 it seemed good to me 
also, having traced the course of 
all things accurately from the first, 
to write unto thee in order, most 
excellent Theophilus ; 4 that thou 
mightest know the certainty con 
cerning the * things * wherein thou 
wast instructed. 

Promise of the Baptist s 
Birth. 

I: 5-25. 

fi There was in the days of 
Herod, king of Judea, a certain 
priest named Zacharias, of the 
course of Abijah : and he had a 
wife of the daughters of Aaron, 
and her name was Elisabeth. 
6 And they were both righteous 
before God, walking in all the 
commandments and ordinances of 
the Lord blameless. 7 And they 
had no child, because that Elisa 
beth was barren, and they both 
were now * well stricken in years. 

8 Now it came to pass, while he 
executed the priest s office before 
God in the order of his course, 
9 according to the custom of the 
priest s office, his lot was to enter 
into the * temple of the Lord and 
burn incense. 10 And the whole 
multitude of the people were pray 
ing without at the hour of incense. 

11 And there appeared unto him an 
angel of the Lord standing on the 
right side of the altar of incense. 

12 And Zacharias was troubled 
when he saw him, and fear fell 
upon him. 13 But the angel said 
unto him, Fear not, Zacharias : 
because thy supplication is heard, 
and thy wife Elisabeth shall beai 
thee a son, and thou shall call his 
name John. 14 And thou shali

have joy and gladness ; and man 
shall rejoice at his birth. 
he shall be great in the sight of th 
Lord, and he shall drink no win 
nor * strong drink ; and he sha 
be filled with the Holy Spirit, eve 
from his mother s womb. 16 Am 
many of the children of Israe 
shall he turn unto the Lord thei 
God. 17 And he shall * go befori 
his face in the spirit and power o 
Elijah, to turn the hearts of th 
fathers to the children, and th 
disobedient to -walk in the wisdom 
of the just ; to make ready for the 
Lord a people prepared for him. 
18 And Zacharias said unto the 
angel, Whereby shall I know this? 
for I am an old man, and my wife 

* well stricken in years. 10 And 
the angel answering said unto 
him, I am Gabriel, that stand in 
the presence of God ; and I was 
sent to speak unto thee, and to; 
bring thee these good tidings. < 
20 And behold, thou shall be 
silent and not able to speak, until 
the day that these things shall 
come to pass, because thou be- 
lievedst not my words, which shall 
be fulfilled in their season. 21 And 
the people were waiting f o p 
Zacharias, and they marvelled 

* while he tarried in the temple. 
22 And when he came out, he could 
not speak unto them : and they 
perceived that he had seen a vision^ 
in the * temple : and he continued 
making signs unto them, and re- 
mained dumb. ^ And it came to 
pass, when the days of his minis 
tration were fulfilled, he departed 
unto his house. 

24 And after these days Elisabeth, 
his wife conceived ; and she hidj| 
herself five months, saying 
25 Thus hath the Lord done untc 
me in the days wherein he looke< 
upon me, to take away my re 
proach among men. 

Promise of Jesus Birth. 

I: 26-38. 

26 Now in the sixth month th< 
angel Gabriel was sent from Got 
unto a city of Galilee, namec 
Nazareth, ^to a virgin betrothec 
to a man whose name was JosephJ 
of the house of David ; and the. 
virgin s name was Mary. 28 An

he came in unto her, and said, 
Hail, thou that art * highly 
favored, the Lord is with thee. * 
29 But she was greatly troubled at 
the saying, and cast in her mind 
what manner of salutation this 
might be. 30 And the angel said 
unto her, Fear not, Mary : for 
thou hast found * favor with God. 

31 And behold, thou shalt conceive 
in thy womb, and bring forth a 
son, and shalt call his name JESUS. 

32 He shall be great, and shall be 
called the Son of the Most High: 
and the Lord God shall give unto 
him the throne of his father David : 

33 and he shall reign over the 
house of Jacob * for ever ; and 
of his kingdom there shall be 
no end. f^ 34 And Mary said unto 
the angel, How shall this be, see 
ing I know not a man ? ^ And 
the angel answered and said unto 
her, The Holy Spirit shall come 
upon thee, and the power of the 
Most High shall overshadow thee : 
wherefore also * the holy thing 
which is begotten * shall be called 
the Son of God. K 36 And behold, 
Elisabeth thy kinswoman, she also 
hath conceived a son in her old 
age ; and this is the sixth month 
with her that *was called barren. 
37 For no word from God shall be 
void of power. ^ And Mary said, 
Behold, the * handmaid of the 
Lord ; be it unto me according to 
thy word. And the angel de 
parted from her. 

Mary s Visit to Elisabeth. 

I: 39-56. 

39 And Mary arose in these days 
and went into the hill country with 
haste, into a city of Judah ; 40 and 
entered into the house of Zacharias 
and saluted Elisabeth. 41 And it 
came to pass, when Elisabeth 
heard the salutation of Mary, the 
babe leaped in her womb ; and 
Elisabeth was filled with the Holy 
Spirit ; 42 and she lifted up her 
voice with a loud cry, and said, 
Blessed art thou among women, 
and blessed is the fruit of thy 
womb. 43 And whence is this to 
me, that the mother of my Lord 
should come unto me ? ** For be 
hold, when the voice of thy salu 
tation came into mine ears, the

babe leaped in my womb for joy, 

45 And blessed is she that * be 
lieved ; for there shall be a fulfil; 
ment of the things which have 
been spoken to her from the Lord. 

46 And Mary said, 

My soul doth magnify the Lord, 

47 And my spirit hath rejoiced in 

God my Saviour. 

48 For he hath looked upon the 

low estate of his * handmaid : 
For behold, from henceforth all 
generations shall call m* 
blessed. 

49 For he that is mighty hath don>; 

to me great things ; 
And holy is his name. 

50 And his mercy is unto generation ; 

and generations 
On them that fear him. 
61 He hath showed strength with 

his arm ; 

He hath scattered the proud * ii i 
the imagination of their heart. 

52 He hath put down princes fron i 

their thrones, 

And hath exalted them of lov 
degree. 

53 The hungry he hath filled witl 

good things ; 

And the rich he hath sent empt) 
away. 

54 He hath given help to Israel hi; 

servant, 

That he might remember mere) 

66 (As he spake unto our fathers 

Toward Abraham and his seec 

for ever. 

66 And Mary abode with hei 
about three months, and returnee 
unto her house. 

Birth of the Baptist. 

1 : 57-80. 

a Now Elisabeth s time was ful 
filled that she should be delivered ; 
and she brought forth a son. 
58 And her neighbors and her kins 
folk heard that the Lord had mag 
nified his mercy towards her ; and 
they rejoiced with her. fi9 And it 
came to pass on the eighth day, 
that they came to circumcise the 
child ; and they would have called 
him Zacharias, after the name ol 
his father. m And his mother 
answered and said, Not so ; but he 
shall be called John. 61 And they 
said unto her, There is none ol 
thy kindred that is called by this

name. ffl And they made signs to 
his father, what he would have 
him called. M And he asked for a 
writing tablet, and wrote, saying, 
His name is John. And they 
marvelled all. M And his mouth 
was opened immediately, and his 
tongue loosed, and he spake, bless 
ing God. ** And fear came on all 
that dwelt round about them : and 
all these sayings were noised abroad 
throughout all the hill country of 
Judaea. ** And all that heard them 
laid them up in their heart, saying, 
What then shall this child be? 
For the hand of the Lord was with 
him. 67 And his father Zacharias 
was filled with the Holy Spirit, 
and prophesied, saying, 
< Blessed be the Lord, the God of 

Israel ; 
For he hath visited and wrought 

redemption for his people, 

69 And hath raised up a horn of 

salvation for us 
In the house of his servant David 

70 (As he spake by the mouth of 

his holy prophets that have 
been from of old), 

71 Salvation from our enemies, and 

from the hand of all that hate 
us ; 

72 To show mercy towards our 

fathers, 

And to remember his holy cove 
nant ; 

73 The oath which he sware unto 

Abraham our father, 

74 To grant unto us that we being 

delivered out of the hand of 
our enemies 
Should serve him without fear, 

75 In holiness and righteousness 

before him all our days. 

76 Yea and thou, child, shall be 

called the prophet of the Most 
High : 

For thou shall go before the 
face of ihe Lord to make ready 
his ways ; 

77 To give knowledge of salvalion 

unlo his people 
In the remission of their sins, 

78 Because of the * tender mercy of 

our God, 

* Whereby the dayspring from oa 
high * shall visit us, 

79 To shine upon them that sit in 

darkness and the shadow of 
death ; 



22

To guide our feet into the way

80 And the child grew, and 
waxed strong in spirit, and was in 
the deserts till the day of his, 
showing unto Israel.

First Account of Jesus 

Virgin Birth. 

I: 18-25. 

18 Now the * birth * of Jesus Christ 
was on this wise : When his mother 
Mary had been betrothed to Joseph, 
before they came together she was 
found with child of the Holy Spirit. 

19 And Joseph her husband, being 
a righteous man, and not willing 



Luke. 



23 



24 



Mark. 



Matthew. 

to make her a public example, was 
minded to put her away privily. 
20 But when he thought on these 
things, behold, an 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 
Spirit. a And she shall bring forth 
a son ; and thou shall call his name 
JESUS ; for it is he that shall save 
his people from their sins. ^ Now 
all this is come to pass, that it 
might be fulfilled which was spoken 
by the Lord through the prophet, 
saying, 
23* Behold, the virgin shall be 

with child, and shall bring 

forth a son, 
And they shall call his name 

* Immanuel ; 

which is, being interpreted, God 
with us. 24 And Joseph arose 
from his sleep, and did as the 
angel of the Lord commanded 
him, and took unto him his wife ; 
25 and knew her not till she had 
brought forth a son : and he called 
his name JESUS. 



Luke. 



Second Account of Jesus 
Virgin Birth. 

II: 1-20. 

1 Now it came to pass in those 
days, there went out a decree from 
Caesar Augustus, that all *the 
world should be enrolled. 2 This 
was the first enrollment made when 
Quirinius was governor of Syria. 

3 And all went to enroll them 
selves, every one to his own city. 

4 And Joseph also went up from 
Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, 
into Judaea, to the city of David, 
which is called Bethlehem, be 
cause he was of the house and 
family of David ; 5 to enroll him 
self with Mary, who was betrothed 
to him, being great with child. 

6 And it came to pass, while they 
were there, the days were fulfilled 
that she should be delivered. 

7 And she brought forth her first 
born son; and she wrapped him in 
swaddling clothes, and laid him in 
a manger, because there was no 
room for them in the inn. 

8 And there were shepherds in 
the same country abiding in the 



Mark. 



Matthew. 



Luke. 



25 



field, and keeping, * watch by 
night over their flock. 9 And an 
angel of the Lord stood by them, 
and the glory of the Lord shone 
round about them : and they were 
sore afraid. 10 And the angel said 
unto them, Be not afraid ; for be 
hold, I bring you good tidings of 
great joy which shall be to all the 
people : u for thera is born to you 
this day in the city of David a 
Saviour, who is * Christ the Lord. 
12 And this is the sign unto you : 
Ye shall find a babe wrapped in 
swaddling clothes, and lying in a 
manger. 13 And suddenly there 
was with the angel a multitude of 
the heavenly host praising God, 
and saying, 

14 Glory to God in the highest, 
And on earth * peace among 

* men in whom he is well 

pleased. 

16 And it came to pass, when 
the angels went away from them 
into heaven, the shepherds said 
one to another, Let us now go 
even unto Bethlehem, and see this 
* thing that is come to pass, which 
the Lord hath made known unto 
us. 16 And they came with haste, 
and found both Mary and Joseph, 
and the babe lying in the manger. 

17 And when they saw it, they 
made known concerning the saying 
which was spoken to them about 
this child. 18 And all that heard 
it wondered at the things which 
were spoken unto them by the 
shepherds. 19 But Mary kept all 
these * sayings, pondering them in 
her heart. 20 And the shepherds 
returned, glorifying and praising 
God for all the things that they 
had heard and seen, even as it was 
spoken unto them. 

Circumcision and Presen 
tation. 

II : 21-39. 

21 And when eight days were 
fulfilled for circumcising him, his 
name was called JESUS, which was 
so called by the angel before he 
was conceived in the womb. 

22 And when the days of their 
purification * according to the law 
of Moses were fulfilled, they 
brought him up to Jerusalem, to 
present him to the Lord & (as it is 



26 



Mark. 



Matthew. 



Luke. 

written in the law of the Lord, 
* Every male that openeth the 
womb shall be called holy to the 
Lord), 24 and to offer a sacrifice 
according to that which is said in 
the law of the Lord, *A pair of 
turtle-doves, or two young pigeons. 

25 And behold, there was a man in 
Jerusalem, whose name was 
Simeon ; and this man was right 
eous and devout, looking for the 
consolation of Israel : and the 
Holy Spirit was upon him. 

26 And it had been revealed unto 
him by the Holy Spirit, that he 
should not see death, before he 
had seen the Lord s Christ. 

27 And he came in the Spirit into 
the temple : and when the parents 
brought in the child Jesus, that 
they might do concerning him 
after the custom of the law, 

28 then he received him into his 
arms, and blessed God, and 
said, 

29 Now lettest thou thy * servant 

depart, * Lord, 

According to thy word in 
peace ; 

30 For mine eyes have seen thy 

salvation, 
81 Which thou hast prepared before 
the face of all peoples ; 

32 A light for * revelation to the 

Gentiles, 
And the glory of thy people 
Israel. 

33 And his father and his .other 
were marveling at the things 
which were spoken concerning 
him; 34 and Simeon blessed them, 
and said unto Mary his mother, 
Behold, this child is set for the 
falling and the rising of many in 
Israel ; and for a sign which is 
spoken against ; S5 yea and a 
sword shall pierce through thine 
own soul ; that thoughts out of 
many hearts may be revealed. 
36 And there was one Anna, a 
prophetess, the daughter of 
Phanuel, of the tribe of Asher 
(she was *of a great age, having 
lived with a husband seven years 
from her virginity, 37 and she 
had been a widow even unto four 
score and four years), who de 
parted not from the temple, 
worshiping with fastings and sup 
plications night and day. ^ And

Childhood. 

II: 1-23. 

1 Now when Jesus was born in 
Bethlehem of Judaea in the days of 
Herod the king, behold, * Wise- 
men from the east came to Jeru 
salem, saying, 2 * Where is he that 
is born King of the Jews? for we 
saw his star in the east, and are 
come to * worship him. 3 And 
when Herod the king heard it, he 
was troubled, and all Jerusalem 
with him. 4 And gathering to 
gether all the chief priests and 
scribes of the people, he inquired 
of them where the Christ should 
be born. 5 And they said unto 
him, In Bethlehem of Judaea : for 
thus it is written through the 
prophet, 

6 *And thou Bethlehem, land of 

Judah, 
Art in no wise least among the 

princes of Judah : 
For out of thee shall come forth 

a governor, 
Who shall be shepherd of my 

people Israel. 

7 Then Herod privily called the 
Wise-men, and learned of them 
exactly * what time the star ap 
peared. 8 And he sent them to 
Bethlehem, and said, Go and 
search out exactly concerning the 
young child ; and when ye have 
found him, bring me word, that I 
also may come and * worship 
him. 9 And they, having heard 
the king, went their way ; and lo, 
the star, which they saw in the 
east, went before them, till it came 
and stood over where the young 
child was. 10 And when they saw 
the star, they rejoiced with exceed 
ing great joy. n And they came 
into the house and saw the young 
child with Mary his mother; and 
they fell down and worshipped 
him ; and opening their treasures 
they offered unto him gifts, gold 



coming up at that very hour she 
gave thanks unto God, and spake 
of him to all them that were 
looking for the redemption of 
Jerusalem. ^ And when they had 
accomplished all things that were 
according to the law of the Lord, 
they returned into Galilee, to their 
own city Nazareth.

and frankincense and myrrh. 
12 And being warned of God in a 
dream that they should not return 
to Herod, they departed into their 
own country another way. 

13 Now when they were departed, 
behold, an angel of the Lord ap- 
peareth to Joseph in a dream, say 
ing, Arise and take the young 
child and his mother, and flee into 
Egypt, and be thou there until I 
tell thee : for Herod will seek the 
young child to destroy him. 
14 And he arose and took the young 
child and his mother by night, and 
departed into Egypt ; ls and was 
there until the death of Herod : 
that it might be fulfilled which was 
spoken by the Lord through the 
prophet, saying, * Out of Egypt did 
I call my son. 

16 Then Herod, when he saw 
that he was mocked of the Wise- 
men, was exceeding wroth, and 
sent forth, and slew all the male 
children that were in Bethlehem, 
and in all the borders thereof, 
from two years old and under, ac 
cording to the time which he had 
exactly learned of the Wise-men. 
17 Then was fulfilled that which 
was spoken through Jeremiah the 
prophet, saying, 
18* A voice was heard in Ramah, 

Weeping and great mourning, 

Rachel weeping for her children ; 

And she would not be comforted, 
because they are not. 

19 But when Herod was dead, 
behold, an angel of the Lord ap- 
peareth in a dream to Joseph in 
Egypt, saying, 20 Arise and take 
the young child and his mother, 
and go into the land of Israel : for 
they are dead that sought the 
young child s life. 21 And he arose 
and took the young child and his 
mother, and came into the land 
of Israel. But when he 
heard that Archelaus was reigning 
over Judaea in the room of his 
father Herod, he was afraid to go 
thither ; and being warned of God 
in a dream, he withdrew into the 
parts of Galilee, ^ and came and 
dwelt in a city called Nazareth; 
that it might be fulfilled which 
was spoken through the prophets 
* that he should be called a Naza-

An Incident from Boyhood. 

II : 40-52. 

40 And the child grew, and 
waxed strong, * rilled with wisdom : 
and the grace of God was upon him. 

41 And his parents went every 
year to Jerusalem at the feast of 
the passover. ** And when he was 
twelve years old, they went up 
after the custom of the feast; 
43 and when they had fulfilled the 
days, as they were returning, the 
boy Jesus tarried behind in Jeru 
salem; and his parents knew it 
not ; 44 but supposing him to be in 
the company, they went a day s 
journey ; and they sought for him 
among their kinsfolk and acquaint 
ance : ** and when they found him 
not, they returned to Jerusalem, 
seeking for him. 46 And it came 
to pass, after three days they found 
him in the temple, sitting in the 
midst of the * teachers, both hear 
ing them, and asking them ques 
tions : 47 and all that heard him 
were amazed at his understanding 
and his answers. * And when 
they saw him, they were aston 
ished ; and his mother said unto 
him, * Son, why hast thou thus 
dealt with us ? behold, thy father 
and I sought thee sorrowing. 
49 And he said unto them, How is it 
that ye sought me? knew ye not 
that I must be * in my Father s 
house ? M And they understood 
not the saying which he spake unto 
them. 51 And he went down with 
them, and came to Nazareth ; and 
he was subject unto them : and his 
mother kept all tAese * sayings in 
her heart. 

52 And Jesus advanced in wisdom 
and * stature, and in *favor with 
God and men.

1 The beginning of the * gospel 
of Jesus Christ, * the Son of God. 

2 Even as it is written * in Isaiah 
the prophet, 

"Behold, I send my messenger 

before thy face, 
Who shall prepare thy way ; 
3 *The voice of one crying in the 

wilderness, 
Make ye ready the way of the 

Lord, 
Make his paths straight ; 



4 John came, who baptized in the 
wilderness and preached the bap 
tism of repentance unto remission of 
sins. 6 And there went out unto 
him all the country of Judcea, and 
all they of Jerusalem ; and they 
were baptized of him in the river 
Jordan, confessing their sins. 6 And 
John was clothed with camel s hair, 
and had a leathern girdle about 
his loins, and did eat locusts and 
wild honey. 



Matthew. 



1 And in those days cometh John 
the Baptist, preaching in the wil 
derness of Judaea, saying, 2 Repent 
ye; for the kingdom of heaven is 
at hand. 3 For this is he that was 
spoken of through Isaiah 
the prophet, saying, 



The voice of one crying in the 

wilderness, 
Make ye ready the way of the 

Lord, 
Make his paths straight. 



4 Now John himself had his rai 
ment of camel s hair, and a leath 
ern girdle about his loins ; and 
his food was locusts and wild 
honey. e Then went out unto him 
Jerusalem, and all Judaea, and all 
the region round about the Jordan ; 
6 and they were baptized of him 
in the river Jordan, confessing 
their sins.

Abilene, 2 in the high-priesthood 
of Annas and Caiaphas, the word 
of God came unto John the son of 
Zacharias in the wilderness. 
3 And he came into all the region 
round about the Jordan, preaching 
the baptism of repentance unto 
remission of sins ; 4 as it is written 
in the book of the words of Isaiah 
the prophet, 



* The voice of one crying in the 

wilderness, 
Make ye ready the way of the 

Lord, 
Make his paths straight. -- 

5 Every valley shall be filled, 
And every mountain and hill 

shall be brought low ; 
And the crooked shall become 

straight, 
And the rough ways smooth ; 

6 And all flesh shall see the salva 

tion of God. 



The Baptist s Call to Repentance. 



Ill: 7-10. 

7 But when he saw many of the 
Pharisees and Sadducees com 
ing * to his baptism, he said unto 
them, Ye offspring of vipers, who 
warned you to flee from the wrath 
to come? 8 Bring forth therefore 
fruit worthy of * repentance : 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. 10 And even now 
the axe lieth at the root of the 
trees : every tree therefore that 
bringeth not forth good fruit is 
hewn down, and cast into the 
fire.

7 He said therefore to the multi 
tudes that went out to be baptized 
of him, Ye offspring of vipers, who 
warned you to flee from the wrath 
to come ? 8 Bring forth therefore 
fruits worthy of * repentance, and 
begin 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. 9 And even now 
the axe also lieth at the root of the 
trees : every tree therefore that

and he that hath food, let him do 
likewise. 12 And there came also 
: publicans to be baptized, and they 
said unto him, Teacher, what must 
we do ? 13 And he said unto them, 
Extort no more than that which is 
appointed you. u And * soldiers 
also asked him, saying, And we, 
what must we do? And he said

whose shoes I am not * worthy to 
stoop down and unloose. 8 I baptize 
you *in water ; but he shall baptize 
you *in the Holy Spirit.

will burn up with unquenchable fire. 



The Baptism of Jesus.

13 Then cometh Jesus from Gali

baptized of him. 14 But John 
would have hindered him, saying, 
I have need to be baptized of thee, 
and comest thou to me ? lb But 
Jesus answering said unto him, 
Suffer * it now : for thus it be- 
cometh us to fulfill all righteous 
ness. Then he suffereth him.

tized, went up straightway from 
the water : and lo, the heavens

18 And as the people were in ex 
pectation, and all men reasoned in 
their hearts concerning John,

all, I indeed baptize you with 
water ; but 

there cometh he that is 
mightier than I, the latchet of 
whose shoes I am not * worthy to

The Temptation of Jesus. 

IV: 1-11 



1 Then was Jesus led up of the 
Spirit into the wilderness to be 
tempted of the devil. 2 And when 
he had fasted forty days and forty 
nights, he afterward hungered. 

3 And the tempter came and said 
unto him, If thou art the Son of 
God, command that these stones 
become * bread. * But he an 
swered and said, It is written, 
* Man shall not live by bread alone, 
but by every word that proceedeth 
out of the mouth of God. 5 Then the 
devil taketh him into the holy city; 
and he set him on the ^pinnacle of 
the temple, 6 and saith unto him, If 
thou art the Son of God, cast thy- 
s e 1 f d o w n : for it is 

written, 
* He shall give his angels charge 

concerning thee : 
and, 
On their hands they shall bear 

thee up, 
Lest haply thou dash thy foot 

against a stone. 

7 Jesus said unto him, Again it is 
written, * Thou shall not make 
trial of the Lord thy God. 8 Again, 
the devil taketh him unto an ex 
ceeding high mountain, and 
showeth him all the kingdoms of 
the world, and the glory of them ; 
9 and he said unto him, All these 
things will I give thee, if thou wilt 
fall down and * worship me. 



10 Then saith Jesus unto him, Get 
thee hence, Satan : for it is written, 
* Thou shall worship the Lord thy 
God, and him only shall Ihou serve. 

11 Then the devil leaveth him ; and 
behold, angels came and ministered 
unlo him. 



IV: 1-13. 

Jesus, full of the Holy 
Spiril, relumed from Ihe Jordan, 
and was led in the Spirit in the 
wilderness 2 during forty days, 
being lempled of Ihe devil. And 
he did eal nolhing in those days : 
and when they were completed, he 
hungered. 

3 And the devil said unto him, 
If thou art the Son of God, com 
mand this stone thai it become 
* bread. 4 And Jesus answered 
unto him, It is writlen, * Man shall 
not live by bread alone. 



9 And he led him to Jerusalem, 
and set him on the * pinnacle of 
the temple, and said unto him, If 
Ihou arl Ihe Son of God, casl thy 
self down from hence : 10 for it is 
written, 

* He shall give his angels charge 
concerning ihee, lo guard Ihee : 

11 and, 

On iheir bauds they shall bear 

Ihee up, 
Lesl haply Ihou dash Ihy foot 

againsl a slone. 

12 And Jesus answering said unlo 
him, It is said, * Thou shall not 
make trial of the Lord thy God. 
5 And he led him up, and showed 
him all the kingdoms of *the 
world in a moment of time. 6 And 
the devil said unto him, To thee 
will I give all this authority, and 
the glory of them : for it hath been 
delivered unto me ; and to whom 
soever I will I give it. 7 If thou 
iherefore wilt * worship before 
me, it shall all be thine. 8 And 
Jesus answered and said unto 
him, It is written, 
Thou shall worship the Lord Ihy 
God, and him only shall Ihou serve. 
13 And when the devil had completed 
every temptalion, he departed from 
him * for a season.

repent ye, and believe in the 
gospel. 



I: 1&-20. 

16 And passing along by the sea 
of Galilee, he saw Simon and 
Andrew the brother of Simon cast 
ing a net in the sea ; for they were 
fishers. 17 And Jesus said unto 
them, Come ye after me, and I 
will make you to become fishers of 
men. 1S And straightway they left 
the nets, and followed him. 

19 And going on a little further, he 
saw * James the son of Zebedee, 
and John his brother, who also 
were in the boat mending the nets.

and they left their father Zebedee 
in the boat with the hired servants, 
and went after him. 



Jesus Return to Galilee.

12 Now when he heard that John 
was delivered up, he withdrew into 
Galilee; 13 and leaving Nazareth, 
he came and dwelt in Capernaum, 
which is by the sea, in the borders 
of Zebulun and Naphtali : 14 that it 
might be fulfilled which was spoken 
through Isaiah the prophet, saying, 

15 * The land of Zebulun and the 

land of Naphtali, 
* Toward the sea, beyond the 

Jordan, 
Galilee of the * Gentiles, 

16 The people that sat in darkness 
Saw a great light, 

And to them that sat in the 
region and shadow of death, 

To them did light spring up. 

17 From that time began Jesus to 
preach, and to say, Repent ye ; 
for the kingdom of heaven is at 
hand.

18 And walking by the sea of

19 And he saith unto them, Come 
ye after me, and I will make you 
fishers of men. 20 And they 
straightway left the nets, and fol 
lowed him. 21 And going on from 
thence he saw two other brethren, 
* James the son of Zebedee, and 
John his brother, in the boat with 
Zebedee their father, mending their 
nets ; and he called them. 22 And 
they straightway left the boat and 
their father, and followed him.

him through all the region round

1 Now it came to pass, while 
the multitude pressed upon him

he was standing by the lake of

the fishermen had gone out of 
them, and were washing their nets.

3 And he entered into one of the

asked him to put out a little from 
the land. And he sat down and 
taught the multitudes out of the 
boat. 4 And when he had left 
speaking, he said unto Simon, Put 
out into the deep, and let down 
your nets for a draught. 5 And 
Simon answered and said, Master, 
we toiled all night, and took noth 
ing : but at thy word I will let 
down the nets. 6 And when they 
had done this, they inclosed a 
great multitude of fishes ; and their 
nets were breaking ; 7 and they 
beckoned unto their partners in 
the other boat, that they should 
come and help them. And they 
came, and filled both the boats, so 
that they began to sink. 8 But 
Simon Peter, when he saw it, fell 
down at Jesus knees, saying, De 
part from me; for I am a sinful 
man, O Lord. 9 For he was 
amazed, and all that were with 
him, at the draught of the fishes 
which they had taken ; 10 and so 
were also * James and John, sons 
of Zebedee, who were partners 
with Simon. And Jesus said unto 
Simon, Fear not ; from henceforth 
thoushalt* catch men. n And when 
they had brought their boats to 
land, they left all, and followed 
him.

taught. 22 And they were astonished 
at his teaching: for he taught them as 
having authority, and not as the 
scribes. ^And straightway there 
was in their synagogue a man 
with an unclean spirit ; and he 
cried out, 24 saying, 
What have we to do with thee, Jesus 
thou Nazarene ? art thou come to 
destroy us ? I know thee who thou 
art, the Holy One of God. 

^And Jesus rebuked * him, saying, 
Hold thy peace and come out of 
him. 26 And the unclean spirit, 
" tearing him and crying with a 
loud voice, came out of 
him. 

27 And they were all amazed,

81 And he came down to Caper

was teaching them on the sabbath 
day : ffl and they were astonished 
at his teaching ; for his word was 
with authority. ^And in the 

synagogue there was a man, that had 
a spirit of an unclean demon; and he 
cried out with a loud voice, M * Ah !

destroy us ? I know thee who thou 
art, the Holy O n e of G o d .

thrown him down in the midst, he 
came out of him, having done him 
no hurt. 

amazement came upon all

insomuch that they questioned 
among themselves, saying, What

were come out of the synagogue, 
they came into the house of Simon 
and Andrew, with James and John. 
30 Now Simon s wife s mother lay 
sick of a fever ; and straightway 
they tell him of her: 31 and he came

sick : 



17 that it might be fulfilled which 
was spoken through Isaiah the 
prophet, saying, * Himself took 
our infirmities, and bare our dis 
eases. 



38 And he rose up from the syna 
gogue, and entered into the house 
of Simon. And Simon s wife s

40 And when the sun was setting, 
all they that had any sick with divers

and he laid his hands on every one 
of them, and healed them. 41 And 
demons also came out from many, 
crying out, and saying, Thou art 
the Son of God. And rebuking 
them, he suffered them not to 
speak, because they knew that he 
was the Christ. 



The Flight of Jesus. 



I: 35-38. 

35 And in the morning, a great 
while before day, he rose up and 
went out, and departed into a 
desert place, and there prayed.

with him followed after him ; 3? 
and they found him, and say unto 
him, All are seeking thee. 3 s And 
he saith unto them, Let us go 
elsewhere into the next towns,

-I: 40-45. 



And 

there cometh to him a leper, 
beseeching him, and "kneeling 
down to him, and saying unto him, 
1 f thou wilt, thou canst make 
me clean. 41 And being moved with 
compassion, he stretched forth 
his hand, and touched him, 
saith unto him, I will ; be thou 
made clean. And straightway the 
leprosy departed from him, 
and he was made clean. ^And he 

* strictly charged him, and 
straightway sent him out, ^and 
saith unto him, See thou say 
nothing to any man: 
but go show t hy s e 1 f to 
the priest, and offer for thy cleansing 
the things which Moses * com 
manded, for a testimony unto them. 
48 But he went out, and began to 
publish it much, and to spread 
abroad the * matter, insomuch that 

* Jesus could no more openly enter 
into *a city, but was without in 
desert places : and they came to 
him from every quarter.

Preaching Tour in Galilee. 

IV: 23-25. 

23 And * Jesus went about in all 
Galilee, teaching in their syna 
gogues, and preaching the * gospel 
of the kingdom, and healing all 
manner of disease and all manner 
of sickness among the people. 24 
And the report of him went forth 
into all Syria ; and they brought 
unto him all that were sick, holden 
with divers diseases and tor 
ments, "possessed with demons, 
and epileptic, and palsied ; and he 
healed them. K And there fol 
lowed him great multitudes from 
Galilee and Decapolis and Jeru 
salem and Judaea and /row beyond 
the Jordan. 

The Healing of a Leper. 

VIII: 1-4. 

And when he was come down 
from the mountain, great multi 
tudes followed him. 2 And 
behold, there came to him a leper 
and * worshipped 

him, saying, 
Lord, if thou wilt, thou canst make 
me clean. 

3 And he stretched forth 
his hand, and touched him, 
saying, I will ; be thou 

made clean. And straighway his 
leprosy was cleansed. 



* And Jesus 
saith unto him, * See thou tell 

no man ; 

but go, show thyself to 
the priest, and offer 

the gift that Moses com 
manded, for a testimony unto them. 



Luke. 



IV : 44. 
44 And he was preaching in the 
synagogues of * Galilee. 



V: 12-16. 

12 And it came to pass, while 
he was in one of the cities, 

behold, a man full of leprosy : 
and when he saw Jesus, he fell on 
his face, and besought him, saying, 
Lord, if thou wilt, thou canst make 
me clean. 

13 And he stretched forth 
his hand, and touched him, 
saying, I will ; be thou 

made clean. And straightway the 
leprosy departed from him. 



"And he 



charged him to tell 



but go thy way, and show thyself to 
the priest.and offer for thy cleansing, 
"according as Moses com 
manded, for a testimony unto them. 
15 But so much the more went 
abroad the report concerning him : 
and great multitudes came together 
to hear, and to be healed of their 
infirmities. 16 But he withdrew 
himself in the deserts, and 
prayed.

Leprosy Cure. 

XVII: 11-19. 

11 And it came to pass, * as they 
were on the way to Jerusalem, that 
he was passing * along the border 
of Samaria and Galilee. 12 And 
he entered into a certain village, 



Mark. 



Matthew. 



Luke. 



37 



there met him ten men that were 
lepers, who stood afar off : 13 and 
they lifted up their voices, saying, 
Jesus, Master, have mercy on us. 
14 And when he saw them, he said 
unto them, Go and show yourselves 
unto the priests. And it came to 
pass, as they went, they were 
cleansed. 15 And one of them, 
when he saw that he was healed, 
turned back, with aloud voice glo 
rifying God ; 16 and he fell upon his 
face at his feet, giving him thanks : 
and he was a Samaritan. I7 And 
Jesus answering said, Were not the 
ten cleansed? but where are the 
nine ? 18 * Were there none found 
that returned to give glory to God, 
save this " stranger? 19 And he 
said unto him, Arise, and go thy 
way: thy faith hath "made thee 
whole. 



The Healing of the Paralytic. 



II : 1-12. 

1 And when he entered again 
into Capernaum after some days, it 
was noised that he was * in the 
house. 2 And many were gathered 
together, so that there was no 
longer room for them, no, not even 
about the door : and he spake the 
word unto them. 

8 And they come, bringing unto 
him a man sick of the palsy, borne 
of four.\ 4 And when they could 
not !: come nigh unto him for the 
crowd, they uncovered the roof 
where he was : and when they had 
broken it up, they let down the 
*bed whereon the sick of the palsy 
lay. 

5 And Jesus seeing their faith saith 
unto the sick of the palsy, *Son 

thy sins are forgiven. 

6 But there were certain of the 
scribes sitting there, and 
reasoning in their hearts, 

7 Why doth this man thus speak ? 
he blasphemeth : who can forgive 
sins but one, even God ? 

8 And straightway Jesus, perceiving 
in his spirit that they so reasoned 
within themselves, saith unto them, 
Why reason ye these things in your 
hearts ? 9 Which is easier, to say 
to the sick of the palsy, 
Thy sins are forgiven ; or to say, 



IX : 1-8. 

1 And he entered into a boat, 
and crossed over, and came into 
:iis own city. 



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 are forgiven. 
3 And behold, certain of the 
scribes said within themselves, 



This man 



blasphemeth. 



4 And Jesus * knowing their 

thoughts said, 

Wherefore think ye evil in your 
hearts? 6 For which is easier, to say, 



V: 17-26. 

17 And it came to pass on one of 
those days, that he was teaching ; 
and there were Pharisees and 
doctors of the law sitting by, who 
were come out of every village of 
Galilee and Judaea and Jerusalem : 
and the power of the Lord was 
with him *to heal. 
18 And beholS, men bring on a 
bed a man that was palsied : and 
they sought to bring him in, and 
to lay him before him. 19 And 
not finding by what -way they 
might bring him in because of the 
multitude, they went up to the 
house-top, and let him down 
through the tiles with his couch 
into the midst before Jesus. 
20 And seeing their faith, he said, 
Man, 

thy sins are forgiven thee. 
s 21 And the scribes and Pharisees 
began to reason, saying, 

Who is this that speaketh 
blasphemies? Who can forgive 
sins, but God alone ? 

22 But Jesus perceiving 
their "reasonings, 
answered and said unto them, 
* Why reason ye in your 
hearts ? 23 Which is easier, to say, 



Thy sins are forgiven ; or to say, Thy sins are forgiven the ; or to say, 



38 



Mark. 



Arise, and take 

up thy bed and walk ? 10 But that 
ye may know that the Son of man 
hath authority on earth to forgive 
sins (he saith to the sick of the 
palsy), u I say unto thee, Arise, 
take .up thy bed, and go unto 
thy house. 12 And he 

arose, and straightway took up the 
bed, and went forth before them all; 
insomuch that they were all amazed, 
and glorified 

God, saying, We never saw it on 
this fashion. 



II: 13-17. 

13 And he went forth again by the 
seaside ; and all the multitude re 
sorted unto him.and he taught them. 

H And as he passed by, he 
saw L e v i the son of Alphaeus 
sitting at the place of toll, and he 
saith unto him, Follow me. And 
he arose and fol 
lowed him. 15 And it came to pass, 
that he was sitting at meat in his 
house, and many * publicans 

and sinners sat down with 
Jesus and his disciples : for there 
were many, and they followed him. 
ifi And the scribes *of the Pharisees, 
when they saw that he was eating 
with the sinners and publicans, 
said unto his disciples, * How is it 
that he eateth *and drinketh with 
publicans and sinners ? 17 And 
when Jesus heard it, he saith unto 
them, They that are * whole have 
no need of a physician, but they 
that are sick : 

I came not to 
call the righteous, but sinners. 



II: 18-22. 

18 And John s disciples and the 
Pharisees were fasting : and they 
come and say unto him, Why do 
John s disciples and the disciples of 
the Pharisees fast, but thy dis 
ciples fast not ? 19 And Jesus said 
unto them, Can the *sons of 

the bndechamber fast, while the 
bridegroom is with them ? as long 
as they have the b r i d e g r o o[m 
with them, they cannot fast. 
20 But the days will come, when 
the bridegroom shall be taken away 
from them, and then will they fast 
in that dav. 



Matthew. 

Arise, and 

walk ? 6 But that 
ye may know that the Son of man 
hath authority on earth to forgive 
sins (then saith he to the sick of the 
palsy), Arise, and 

take up thy b ed, and go unto 
thy house. 7 And he 

arose, and departed to his house. 

8 But when the multitudes saw it, 
they were afraid, and glorified 
God, who had given such authority 
unto men. 



The Call of Levi. 

IX: 9-13. 

9And as Jesus passed by from thence, 
he saw a man, called Matthew, 
sitting at the place of toll : and he 
saith unto him, Follow me. And 
he arose, and fol 
lowed him. 10 And it came to pass, 
as he *sat at meat in the 

house, behold, many "publicans 
and sinners came and sat down with 
Jesus and his disciples. 

11 And when the Pharisees 
saw it, they 

said unto his disciples, Why 
eateth your Teacher with the 
publicans and sinners? 12 But 
when he heard it, he said, 
They that are * w h o 1 e have 
no need of a physician, but they 
that are sick. 13 But go ye and learn 
what this meaneth, *I desire mercy, 
and not sacrifice : for I came not to 
call the righteous, but sinners. 

The Question of Fasting. 

IX: 14-17. 

14 Then come to him the disciples 
of John, saying, 

Why do 
we and 

the Pharisees fast *oft, but thy dis 
ciples fast not ? 16 And Jesus said 
unto them, Can the =: sons of 
the bridechamber mourn, as long 
as the bridegroom is 
with them? 

but the days will come, when 
the bridegroom shall be taken away 
from them, and then will they fast. 



Luke. 

Arise and 

walk ? 2 * But that 
ye may know that the Son of man 
hath authority on earth to forgive 
sins (he said unto him that was 
palsied), I say unto thee, Arise, 
and take up thy couch, and go unto 
thy house. 2" And immediately he 
rose up before them, and took up that 
whereon he lay, and departed 
to his house, 

glorifying 

God. 2(i And amazement took hold 
on all, and they glorified God ; and 
they were filled with fear, saying, 
We have seen strange things to-day. 



V: 27-32. 

27 And 

after these things he went forth, 
and beheld a publican, named Levi, 
sitting at the place of toll, and 
said unto him, Follow me. ^And 
he forsook all, and rose up and fol 
lowed him. 29 And Levi made him a 
great feast in his house : and there 
was a great multitude of publicans 
and others that were sitting at meat 
with them. 

3" And the "Pharisees 
and their scribes murmured against 

his disciples, saying, Why 
do ye eat and drink with the 
* publicans and sinners ? 31 And 
Jesus answering said unto 
them, They that are in " health have 
no need of a physician ; but they 
that are sick. 

32 1 am not come to 
call the righteous, but sinners to 
repentance. 

V: 33-39. 

33 And they said unto him, The 
disciples of John fast often, and 
make supplications ; likewise also 
the disciples of the Pharisees ; but 
thine eat and drink. **And Jesus said 
unto them, Can ye make the "sons of 
the bridechamber fast, while the 
bridegroom is with them ? 



e days will come; and when 
the bridegroom shall be taken away 
from them, then will they fast 
in those days. 



Mark. 



21 No man seweth a piece of 
undressed cloth on an old gar 
ment ; else that which should fill it 
up taketh from it, the new from the 
old, and a worse rent is made. 
22 And no man putteth new wine 
into old * wine-skins ; else the 
wine will burst the skins, and the 
wine perisheth, and the skins : 
but they put new wine into fresh 
wine-skins. 



Matthew. 



16 And no man putteth a piece 
of undressed cloth upon an old 
garment ; for that which should 
fill it up taketh from the garment, 
and a worse rent is made. 
17 Neither do men put new wine 
into old * wine-skins : else the 
skins burst, and the wine is 
spilled, and the skins perish ; but 
they put new wine into fresh wine 
skins, and both are preserved. 



Luke. 



39 



36 And he spake also a parable 
unto them : No man rendeth a 
piece from a new garment and 
putteth it upon an old garment ; 
else he will rend the new, and 
also the piece from the new will 
not agree with the old. ^And 
no man putteth new wine into old 
* wine-skins ; else the new wine 
will burst the skins, and itself will 
be spilled, and the skins will per 
ish. S" But the new wine must be 
put into fresh wine-skins. 39 And 
no man having drunk old wine 
desireth new ; for he saith, The 
old is * good. 



First Speech About the Sabbath. 



II: 23-28. 

23 And it came to pass, that he 
was going on the sabbath day 
through the grainfields ; and his 
disciples * began, as they went, to 
pluck the ears. 24 And the Phari 
sees said unto them, Behold, why 
do they on the sabbath day that 
which is not lawful? 2" And he 
said unto them, *Did ye never 
read what David did, when he 
had need, and was hungry, he, 
and they that were with him ? 
26 How he entered into the house 
of God * when Abiathar was high 
priest, and ate the showbread, 
which it is not lawful to eat save 
for the priests, and gave also to 
them that were with him ? 



27 And he said unto them, The 
sabbath was made for man, and 
not man for the sabbath : K so that 
the Son of man is lord even of 
the sabbath. 



XII: 1-8. 

1 At that season Jesus went on 
the sabbath day through the grain- 
fields ; and his disciples were hun 
gry and began to pluck ears and to 
eat. 2 But the Pharisees, when 
they saw it, said unto him, Be 
hold, thy disciples do that which 
it is not lawful to do upon the 
sabbath. s But he said unto them, 

* Have ye not read what David 
did, when he was h u n g ry , 
and they that were with him ; 
4 how he entered into the house 
of God, 

and * ate the showbread, 

which it was not lawful for him to eat, 

neither for them that were with 

him, but only for the priests ? 

6 Or have ye not read in the law, 

* that on the sabbath day the priests 
in the temple profane the sabbath, 
and are guiltless ? 6 But I say 
unto you, that *one greater than 
the temple is here. 7 But if ye had 
known what this meaneth, * I desire 
mercy, and not sacrifice, ye would 
not have condemned the guiltless. 



8 For the Son of man is lord of 
the sabbath. 



VI: 1-5. 

1 Now it came to pass on a * sab 
bath, that he was going through 
the grainfields ; and his disciples 
plucked the ears, and did eat, 
rubbing them in their hands. 2 But 
certain of the Pharisees said, Why 
do ye that which it is not lawful 
to do on the sabbath day ? 3 And 
Jesus answering them said, * Have 
ye not read even this, what David 
did, when he was hungry, he, 
and they that were with him ; 
4 how he entered into the house 
of God, 

and took and ate the showbread, 
and gave also to them that were 
with him ; which it is not lawful 
to eat save for the priests alone ? 



6 And he s a i d unto them, 
The Son of man is lord of 

the sabbath. 



Second Speech About the Sabbath.

1 And he entered again into the 
synagogue; and 

there was a man there who had 
his hand withered. 2 And they 



XII: &-14. 

9 And he departed thence, and 
went into their synagogue : 

10 and behold, a man having a 
withered hand. And they asked 



VI: 6-11. 

6 And it came to pass on an 
other sabbath, that he entered into 
the synagogue and taught : and 
there was a man there, and his 
right hand was withered. 7 And the

Mark. 



watched him, whether he would 
heal him on the sabbath day ; that 
they might accuse him. 

8 And he saith unto the man that 
had his hand withered, * Stand 
forth. 



4 And he saith unto them, Is it 
lawful on the sabbath day to do 
good, or to do harm ? to save a 
life, or to kill ? But they held their 
peace. 6 And when he had looked 
round about on them with anger, 
being grieved at the hardening of 
their heart, he saith unto the man, 
Stretch forth thy hand. And he 
stretched it forth ; and his hand 
was restored. 6 And the Phari 
sees went out, and straightway with 
the Herodians took counsel against 
him, how they might destroy him. 



Matthew. 

him, saying, Is it lawful to heal 
on the sabbath day? that they 
might accuse him. 



11 And he said unto them, What 
man shall there be of you, that 
shall have one sheep, and if this 
fall into a pit on the sabbath day, 
will he not lay hold on it, and lift 
it out? ^IIow much then is a 
man of more value than a sheep ! 
Wherefore it is lawful to do good 
on the sabbath day. 



13 Then saith he to the man, 
Stretch forth thy hand. And he 
stretched it forth ; and it was re 
stored whole, as the other. 14 But 
the Pharisees went out, and took 
counsel against him, how they 
might destroy him. 



Luke. 

scribes and the Pharisees watched 
him, whether he would heal on the 
sabbath ; that they might find how 
to accuse him. 8 But he knew their 
thoughts ; and he said to the man 
that had his hand withered, Rise 
up, and stand forth in the midst. 
And he arose and stood forth. 



9 And Jesus said unto them, I ask 
you, Is it lawful on the sabbath to 
do good, or to do harm? to save 
a life, or to destroy it ? 10 And he 
looked round about on them 



all, and said unto him, Stretch 
forth thy hand. And he did so : 
and his hand was restored. u But 
they were filled with "madness; 
and communed one with another 
what they might do to Jesus. 

The Cure of the Infirm 
Woman. 

XIII: 10-17. 

10 And he was teaching in one 
of the synagogues on the sabbath 
day. u And behold, a woman 
that had a spirit of infirmity eight 
een years ; and she was bowed 
together, and could in no wise lift 
herself up. 12 And when Jesus 
saw her, he called her, and said 
to her, Woman, thou art loosed 
from thine infirmity. 13 And he 
laid his hands upon her : and im 
mediately she was made straight, 
and glorified God. 14 And the 
ruler of the synagogue, being 
moved with indignation because 
Jesus had healed on the sabbath, 
answered and said to the multi 
tude, There are six days in which 
men ought to work : in them 
therefore come and be healed, 
and not on the day of the 
sabbath. But the Lord an 
swered him, and said, Ye hypo 
crites, doth not each one of you 
on the sabbath loose his ox or his 
ass from the * stall, and lead him 
away to watering? 16 And ought 
not this woman, being a daughter

Matthew. 



Luke. 



41 



of Abraham, whom Satan had 
bound, lo, these eighteen years, to 
have been loosed from this bond 
on the day of the sabbath ? 17 And 
as he said these things, all his adver 
saries were put to shame : and all 
the multitude rejoiced for all the glo 
rious things that were done by him. 

The Healing of a Case of 
Dropsy. 

XIV: 1-6. 

1 And it came to pass, when he 
went into the house of one of the 
rulers of the Pharisees on a sab 
bath to eat bread, that they were 
watching him. 2 And behold, 
there was before him a certain 
man that had the dropsy. 3 And 
Jesus answering spake unto the 
lawyers and Pharisees, saying, Is 
it lawful to heal on the sabbath, 
or not? 4 But they held their 
peace. And he took him, and healed 
him, and let him go. 5 And he 
said unto them, Which of you 
shall have * an ass or an ox fallen 
into a well, and will not straight 
way draw up him on a sabbath 
day? 6 And they could not an 
swer again unto these things. 



Healing and Being Thronged. 



Ill: 7-12. 



7 And Jesus with his disciples 
withdrew to the sea : and a great 
multitude from Galilee followed ; 
and from Judaea, 8 and from Jeru 
salem, and from Idumaea, and be 
yond the Jordan, and about Tyre 
and Sidon, a great multitude, hear 
ing * what great things he did, 
came unto him. 9 And he spake 
to his disciples, that a little boat 
should wait on him because of 
the crowd, lest they should throng 
him : 10 for he had healed many ; 
insomuch that as many as had 
* plagues * pressed upon him that 
they might touch him. xl And the 
unclean spirits, whensoever they 
beheld him, fell down before him, 
and cried, saying, Thou art the 
Son of God. i 2 And he charged 
them much that they should not 
make him known. 



XII: 15-21. 

15 And Jesus perceiving it with 
drew from thence : and many fol 
lowed him ; 



and he healed them all, 



16 and charged 

them that they should not 
make him known : 17 that it might 
be fulfilled which was spoken 
through Isaiah the prophet, saying, 
* 18 Behold, my servant whom I 
have chosen ; 



VI: 17-19. 



17 And he came down with them, 
and stood on a level place, and a 
great multitude of his disciples, 
and a great number of the people 
from all Judaea and Jerusalem, 
and the sea coast of Tyre and 
Sidon, who came to hear him, and 
to be healed of their disease ; 



18 and they that were troubled 
with unclean spirits were healed. 
19 And all the multitude sought to 
touch him ; for power came forth 
from him, and healed them all.

appointed twelve, * that they 
might be with him, and that he 
might send them forth to preach, 
15 and to have authority to cast out 
demons : 16 * and Simon he sur- 
named Peter ; 17 and James the son

Two Introductory Comparisons. 



V : 13-16. 

13 Ye are the salt of the earth : 
but if the salt have lost its savor, 
wherewith shall it be salted? it is 
thenceforth good for nothing, but 
to be cast out and trodden under 



14 Ye are the light 
A city set on a hill 



foot of men. 
of the world, 
cannot be hid. 15 Neither do men 
light a lamp, and put it under the 
bushel, but on the stand ; and it 
shineth unto all that are in the 
house. 6 Even so let your light 
shine before men ; that they may 
see your good works, and glorify 
your Father who is in heaven. 



XI: 33; XIV: 34, 35. 

34 Salt therefore is good ; but if 
even the salt have lost its savor, 
wherewith shall it be seasoned ? 
35 It is fit neither for the land nor 
for the dunghill : men cast it out. 
He that hath ears to hear, let him 
hear. 

33 No man, when he hath lighted 
a lamp, putteth it in a cellar, 
neither under the bushel, but on 
the stand, that they which enter 
in may see the light. 



Jesus Attitude Tozuard the Law. 



V: 17-20. 

17 Think not that I came to de 
stroy the law or the prophets : I 
came not to destroy, but to ful 
fil. 18 For verily I say unto you, 
Till heaven and earth pass away, 
one jot or one tittle shall in no 
wise pass away from the law, till 
all things be accomplished. 19 Who- 



XVI: 17. 



17 But it is easier for heaven 
and earth to pass away, than for 
one tittle of the law to fall.

Matthew. Luke. 



soever therefore shall break one of 
these least commandments, and 
shall teach men so, shall be called 
least in the kingdom of heaven : 
but whosoever shall do and teach 
them, he shall be called great in 
the kingdom of heaven. 20 For I 
say unto you, that except your 
righteousness shall exceed the 
righteousness of the scribes and 
Pharisees, ye shall in no wise 
enter into the kingdom of heaven. 

First Example: Murder 

and the Spirit of 

Murder, 

V: 21, 22. 

21 Ye have heard that it was said 
to them of old time, *Thou shalt 
not kill ; and whosoever shall kill 
shall be in danger of the judg 
ment : 22 but I say unto you, that 
every one who is angry with his 
brother * shall be in danger of the 
judgment ; and whosoever shall 
say to his brother, * Raca, shall be 
in danger of the council ; and who 
soever shall say, * Thou fool, shall 
be in danger *of the *hell of fire. 

First Supplement: 
On Anger. 

V: 23, 24. 

23 If therefore thou art offering 
thy gift at the altar, and there re- 
memberest that thy brother hath 
aught against thee, 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. 



Second Supplement: On Reconciliation. 



V: 25, 26. 



25 Agree with thine adversary 
quickly, while thou art with him 
in the way ; lest haply the adver 
sary deliver thee to the judge, and 
the judge "deliver thee to the 
officer, and thou be cast into 
prison. 26 Verily I say unto thee, 
Thou shalt by no means come out 
thence, till thou have paid the last 
farthing. 



XII: 57-59. 
57 And why even of yourselves 
judge ye not what is right ? *& For 
as thou art going with thine adver 
sary before the magistrate, on the 
way give diligence to be quit of 
him ; lest haply he drag thee unto 
the judge, and the judge shall 
deliver thee to the " officer, and 
the officer shall cast thee into 
prison. S9 I say unto thee, Thou 
shalt by no means come out thence, 
till thou have paid the very last 
mite. 



Mark. 



Matthew. 



Luke. 



Second Example: 
Concerning Adultery. 

V: 27, 28. 

27 Ye have heard that it was 
said, Thou shall not commit 
adultery : ^ but I say unto you, 
that every one that looketh on a 
woman to lust after her hath com 
mitted adultery with her already 
in his heart. 

Supplement : 
On Sinful Thoughts. 

V: 29, 30. 

29 And if thy right eye causeth 
thee to stumble, pluck it out and 
cast it from thee : for it is profit 
able for thee that one of thy mem 
bers should perish, and not thy 
whole body be cast into hell. 
30 And if thy right hand causeth 
thee to stumble, cut it off, and 
cast it from thee : for it is profit 
able for thee that one of thy mem 
bers should perish, and not thy 
whole body go into hell. 

Third Example : Concerning Divorce. 



V: 31, 32. 

31 It was said also, * Whosoever 
shall put away his wife, let him 
give her a writing of divorcement : 
32 but I say unto you, that every 
one that putteth away his wife, 
saving for the cause of fornication, 
maketh her an adulteress : and 
whosoever shall marry her when 
she is put away committeth adul 
tery. 

Fourth Example: 
Concerning Oaths. 

V: 33-37. 

83 Again, ye have heard that it 
was said to them of eld time, 
* Thou shall not forswear thyself, 
but shall perform unlo Ihe Lord 
thine oaths : 3* but I say unto you, 
Swear not at all ; neither by the 
heaven, for it is the throne of 
God ; & nor by the earth, for it is 
the footstool of his feet ; nor * by 
Jerusalem, for il is Ihe city of the 
great king. * Neither shall ihou 
swear by ihy head, for ihou can si 
nol make one hair white or black. 
37:11 But lei your speech be, Yea, 
yea ; Nay, nay : and whatsoever is 
more lhan Ihese is of * Ihe evil one. 



XVI : 18. 



18 Every one thai pulleth away 
his wife, and marrieth another, 

commitleth adultery : and he thai 
marrieth one thai is put away 
from a husband committeth adul 
tery. 






46 



Mark. 



Matthew. 



Luke. 



Fifth Example : Concerning Vengeance. 



V: 38-42. 

88 Ye have heard that it was 
said, An eye for an eye, and a 
tooth for a tooth : *> but I say unto 
you, * Resist not *him that is evil : 
but whosoever smiteth thee on thy 
right cheek, turn to him the other 
also. 40 And if any man would go to 
law with thee, and take away thy 
coat, let him have thy cloak also. 
41 And whosoever shall * compel 
thee to go one mile, go with him 
two. 42 Give to him that asketh 
thee, and from him that would 
borrow of thee turn not thou away. 



VI : 29, 30. 



29 To him that smiteth thee era 
the one cheek offer also the other \ 
and from him that taketh away 

thy cloak withhold not thy coal 
also. 

30 Give to every one that asketh 
thee ; and of him that taketh 
away thy goods ask them nol 
again. 



Sixth Example: Concerning Loving One s Enemies. 



V: 43-48. 

43 Ye have heard that it was 
said, *Thou shall love thy neigh 
bor, and hate thine enemy : 44 but 
I say unto you, Love your ene 
mies, and 

pray for them that persecute you ; 
45 that ye may be sons of your 
Father who is in heaven : for he 
maketh his sun to rise on the evil 
and the good, and sendeth rain 
on the just and the unjust. 46 For 
if ye love them that love you, 
what reward have ye? do not 
even the * publicans the same? 
47 And if ye salute your brethren 
only, what do ye more than 
others? do not even the Gentiles 
the same? 



48 Ye therefore shall be perfect, 
as your heavenly Father is per 
fect. 

Concerning Alms. 

VI: 1-4. 

1 Take heed that ye do not your 
righteousness before men, to be 
seen of them : else ye have no 
reward with your Father who is 
in heaven. 

2 When therefore thou doest 
alms, sound not a trumpet before 



VI : 27, 28, 32-36. 



27 But I say unto you that hear, 
Love your enemies, do good to 
them that hate you, ^ bless the: 
that curse you, pray for them th 
despitefully use you. 



32 And if ye love them that love 
you, what thank have ye? fo 
even sinners love those that love 
them. 33 And if ye do good tc 
them that do good to you, what 
thank have ye? for even sinner 
do the same. M And if ye lenc 
to them of whom ye hope 
receive, what thank have yei 
even sinners lend to sinners, tc 
receive again as much. 
love your enemies, and do the* 
good, and lend, * never despairing ; 
and your reward shall be great, 
and ye shall be sons of the Mos 
High : for he is kind toward the 
unthankful and evil. ^Be ye 
merciful, even as your Father is 
merciful. 



Mark. 



Matthew. 

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 
received their reward. 3 But when 
thou doest alms, let not thy left 
hand know what thy right hand 
doeth : 4 that thine alms may be 
in secret : and thy Father who 
seeth in secret shall recompense 
thee. 

Concerning Prayer. 

VI : 5-8. . 

"And when ye pray, ye shall 
not be as the hypocrites : for they 
love to stand and pray in the syna 
gogues and in the corners of the 
streets, that they may be seen of 
men. . Verily I say unto you, They 
have received their reward. 6 But 
thou, when thou prayest, enter into 
thine inner chamber, and having 
shut thy door, pray to thy Father 
who is in secret, and thy Father 
who seeth in secret shall recom 
pense thee. 7 And in praying use 
not vain repetitions, as the Gen 
tiles do : for they think that they 
shall be heard for their much 
speaking. 8 Be not therefore like 
unto them : for *your Father 
knoweth what things ye have 
need of, before ye ask him. 



Luke. 



The Lord s Prayer. 



VI: 9-15. 



9 After this manner therefore 
pray ye : Our Father who art in 
heaven, 

Hallowed be thy name. 
10 Thy kingdom come. Thy will be 
done, as in heaven, so on earth. 
"Give us this day *our daily 
bread. 12 And forgive us our debts, 
as we also have forgiven 

our debtors. J 8 And 
bring us not into temptation, but 
deliver us from * the evil one. - 
H For if ye forgive men their tres 
passes, your heavenly Father will 
also forgive you. 16 But if ye for 
give not men their trespasses, 
neither will your Father forgive 
your trespasses. 



XI: 1-4. 

1 And it came to pass, as he was 
praying in a certain place, that 
when he ceased, one of his disciples 
said unto him, Lord, teach us to 
pray, even as John also taught his 
disciples. 2 And he said unto them, 
When ye pray, say, " Father, 

Hallowed be thy name. 
Thy kingdom come.* 

3 Give us day by day >: our daily 
bread. * And forgive us our sins ; , 
for we ourselves also forgive every 
one that is indebted to us. And 
bring us not into temptation.* 



48 



Mark. 



Matthew. 



Luke. 



Concerning Fasts. 

VI. 16-18. 

16 Moreover when ye fast, be 
not as the hypocrites, of a sad 
countenance : for they disfigure 
their faces, that they may be seen 
of men to fast. Verily I say unto 
you, They have received their 
reward. 17 But thou, when thou 
fastest, anoint thy head, and wash 
thy face ; 18 that thou be not seen 
of men to fast, but of thy Father 
who is in secret : and thy Father, 
who seeth in secret, shall recom 
pense thee. 

Treasures on Earth and in Heaven. 



VI: 19-21. 

19 Lay not up for yourselves 
treasures upon the earth, where 
moth and rust consume, and where 
thieves * break through and steal: 
20 but lay up for yourselves treas 
ures in heaven, where neither 
moth nor rust doth consume, and 
where thieves do not break 
through nor steal : 21 for where thy 
treasure is, there will thy heart 
be also. 



XII : 33, 34. 
33 Sell that which ye have, and 
give alms ; 



make for yourselves purses whic 
wax not old, a treasure i n t h e 
heavens that faileth not, where no 
thief draweth near, neither moth 
destroyeth. ** For where your 
treasure is, there will your heart 
be also. 



The Inner Light. 
VI: 22, 23. XI: 34-36. 



22 The lamp of the body is the 
eye : if therefore thine eye be 
single, thy whole body shall be full 
of light. 22 But if thine eye be evil, 
thy whole body shall be full of 
darkness. If therefore 
the light that is in thee be dark 
ness, how great is the darkness ! 



34 The lamp of thy body is thine 
eye : when thine eye is 
single, thy whole body also is full 
of light ; but when it is evil, 
thy body also is full of 

darkness. ^ Look therefore whether 
the light that is in thee be not dark 
ness. ^ If therefore thy whole body 
be full of light, having no part dark, 
it shall be wholly full of light, as 
when the lamp with its bright shin 
ing doth give thee light. 



Concerning Divided Service. 



VI: 24. 

24 No man can serve two 
masters : for either he will hate the 
one, and love the other ; or else he 
will hold to one, and despise the 
other. Ye can not serve God and 
mammon. 



XVI: 13. 

13 No *servant can serve two 
masters : for either he will hate the 
one, and love the other ; or else he 
will hold to one, and despise the 
other. Ye can not serve God and 
mammon. 

The Quarrel over an 
Estate. 

XII: 13-21. 

13 And one out of the multitude 
said unto him, Teacher, bid my 



Mark. 



Matthew. 



Luke. 



49 



brother divide the inheritance with 
me. 14 But he said unto him, 
Man, who made me a judge or a 
divider over you? 15 And he said 
unto them, Take heed, and keep 
yourselves from all cavetousness : 
*for a man s life consisteth not in 
the abundance of the things which 
he possesseth. 16 And he spake a 
parable unto them, saying, The 
ground of a certain rich man 
brought forth plentifully : 17 and 
he reasoned within himself, say 
ing, What shall I do, because I 
have not where to bestow my 
fruits? 18 And he said, This will 
I do : I will pull down my barns, 
and build greater : and there will 
I bestow all my grain and my 
goods. 19 And I will say to my 
*soul, Soul, thou hast much 
goods laid up for many years; 
take thine ease, eat, drink, be 
merry. 20 But God said unto him, 
Thou foolish one, this night * is thy 
soul required of thee ; and the 
things which thou hast prepared, 
whose shall they be ? 21 So is he 
that layeth up treasure for himself, 
and is not rich toward God. 

Against Sordid Anxiety. 

25-34. XII: 22-31. 

22 And he said unto his disciples, 
Therefore I say unto you, Be 
not anxious for your "life, what ye 
shall eat ; 

nor yet for your body, what ye shall 
put on. ^P orthe life is more than 
the food, and the body than the 
raiment. 24 Consider the ravens, 
that they sow not, neither 
reap ; which have no store- 
chamber nor barn ; and 

God feedeth them : of how much 
more value are ye than the birds ! 
25 And which of you by being 
anxious can add a cubit unto *the 
measure of his life ? 26 If then ye 
are not able to do even that which is 
least, why are ye anxious concern 
ing the rest ? 27 Consider the lilies, 
how they grow : they 
toil not, neither do they spin ; yet 
I say unto you, Even Solomon 
in all his glory was not arrayed like 
one of these. 28 But if God doth 
so clothe the grass in the field, 
which to-day is, and to-morrow is 
cast into the oven ; how much more 



VI 



26 Therefore I say unto you, Be 
not anxious 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 
the food, and the body than the 
raiment ? 2 Behold the birds of 
heaven, that they sow not, neither 
do they reap, nor gather into 
barns ; and your heavenly 
Father feedeth them. Are not ye 
of much more value than they? 
27 And which of you by being 
anxious can add one cubit unto "the 
measure of his life ? 28 And 

why are ye anxious concern 
ing raiment? Consider the lilies 
of the field, how they grow ; they 
toil not, neither do they spin ; 29 yet 
I say unto you, that even Solomon 
in all his glory was not arrayed like 
one of these, so But if God doth 
so clothe the grass of the field, 
which to-day is, and to-morrow is 
cast into the oven,

Mark. 



Matthew. 

shall he not much more clothe you, 
O ye of little faith ? 31 Be not there 
fore anxious, saying, What shall 
we eat ? or, What shall we drink ? 
or, Wherewithal shall we be 
clothed? 32 For after all these 
things do the Gentiles seek ; for 
your heavenly Father knoweth that 
ye have need of all these things. 

33 But seek ye first his kingdom, and 
his righteousness ; and all these 
things shall be added unto you. 

34 Be not therefore anxious for the 
morrow : for the morrow will be 
anxious for itself. Sufficient unto 
the day is the evil thereof. 



Luke. 

shall he clothe you, 

O ye cf little faith ? 
29 And seek not ye what ye shall 
eat, and what ye shall drink, 
neither be ye of doubtful mind. 
30 For all these things 
do the nations of the world seek 
after : but your Father knoweth that 
ye have need of these things. 
81 Yet seek ye >: his kingdom, 

and these things 
shall be added unto you. 



"Fear Not, Little Flock." 

XII: 32. 

32 Fear not, little flock; for it 
is your Father s good pleasure to 
give you the kingdom. 

Against Unwarranted Judgment. 

VI : 37-42. 

37 And judge not, and ye shall 
not be judged : and condemn not, 
and ye shall not be condemned : 
release, and ye shall be released : 

38 give, and it shall be given unto 
you ; good measure, pressed down, 
shaken together, running over, 
shall they give into your bosom. 
For with what measure ye mete 
it shall be measured to you again. 

39 And he spake also a parable 
unto them, Can the blind guide 
the blind ? shall they not both fall 
into a pit? ^The disciple is not 
above his teacher: but every one 
when he is perfected shall be as 
his teacher. 41 And why behold- 
est thou the mote that is in thy 



VII: 1-5. 

1 Judge not, that ye be not 
judged. 2 For with what judg 
ment ye judge, ye shall be judged : 



and with what measure ye mete 
it shall be measured unto you. 



8 And why behold- 
est thou the mote that is in thy 



brother s eye, but considerest not 
the beam that is in thine own 
eye? 4 Or how wilt thou say to 
thy brother, Let me cast 
out the mote out of thine eye ; 
and lo, 

the beam is in thine own 
eye? 5 Thou hypocrite, cast out 
first the beam out of thine own 
eye ; and then shalt thou see 
clearly lo cast out the mote out 
of thy brother s eye. 

On Desecration of What 
is Sacred. 

VII. 6. 

6 Give not that which is holy 
unto the dogs, neither cast your 



brother s eye, but considerest not 
the beam that is in thine own 
eye ? 42 Or how canst thou say to 
thy brother, Brother, let me cast 
out the mote that is in thine eye, 
when thou thyself beholdest not 
the beam that is in thine own 
eye ? Thou hypocrite, cast out 
thine own

Encouragement of 

VII: 7-11. 

7 Ask, and it shall be given you ; 
seek, and ye shall find ; knock, 
and it shall be opened unto you : 
8 for every one that asketh receiv- 
:th ; and he that seeketh findeth ; 
and to him that knocketh it shall 
ae opened. 9 Or what man is there 
of you, who, if his son shall ask 
him for a loaf, will give him a 
stone ; 10 or if he shall ask for a 
fish, will give him a serpent ? 

11 If ye then, being evil, 
know how to give good gifts unto 
your children, how much more shall 
your Father who is in heaven give 
good things to them that ask him ? 



Parable of the Importunate 
Friend. 

XI : 5-8. 

*And he said unto them, Which 
of you shall have a friend, and 
shall go unto him at midnight, 
and say to him, Friend, lend me 
three loaves ; 6 for a friend of mine 
is come to me from a journey, 
and I have nothing to set before 
him; 7 and he from within shall 
answer and say, Trouble me not : 
the door is now shut, and my chil 
dren are with me in bed ; I cannot 
rise and give thee ? 8 I say unto 
you, Though he will not rise and 
give him because he is his friend, 
yet because of his importunity he 
will arise and give him *as many 
as he needeth. 

Entreaty in Prayer. 

XI: 9-13. 

8 And I say unto you, 

Ask, and it shall be given you ; 
seek, and ye shall find ; knock, 
and it shall be opened unto you. 
10 For every one that asketh receiv- 
eth ; and he that seeketh findeth ; 
and to him that knocketh it shall 
be opened. n And of which of you 
that is a father shall his son ask 
*a loaf, and he give him a 
stone? or a fish, and he for a 
fish give him a serpent ? 12 Or if he 
shall ask an egg, will he give him a 
scorpion ? 13 If ye then, being evil, 
know how to give good gifts unto 
your children, how much more shall 
your heavenly Father give the 
Holy Spirit to them that ask him? 



The Golden Rule." 



VII: 12. 

12 All things therefore whatso 
ever ye would that men should do 
unto you, even so do ye also unto 
them : for this is the law and the 
prophets. 



VI: 31. 

81 And as ye would that men 
should do to you, do ye also to 
them likewise. 



The Strait Gate. 



VII: 13, 14. 

13 Enter ye in by the narrow 
gate : for wide * is the gate, and 
broad is the way, that leadeth to 
destruction, and many are they 



XIII: 23, 24. 

23 And one said unto him, Lord, 
are they few that are saved ? And 
he said unto them, 2< Strive to 
enter in by the narrow door : for 



52 



Mark. 



many, I say unto you, shall seek 
to enter in, and shall not be 
*able.

that enter in thereby. 14 * For 
narrow is the gate, and straitened 
the way, that leadeth unto life, 
and few are they that find it. 

False Prophets.

15 Beware of false prophets, who 
come to you in sheep s clothing, 
but inwardly are ravening wolves. 

The Test of Piety. 

VII : 16-20 , XII : 33-35. VI : 43-45. 

16 By their fruits ye shall know 
them. Do men gather grapes of 
thorns, or figs of thistles ? 17 Even 
so every good tree bringeth forth 
good fruit ; but the corrupt tree 
bringeth forth evil fruit. 18 A 



good tree can not bring forth evil 
fruit, neither can a corrupt tree 
bring forth good fruit. 19 Every 
tree that bringeth not forth good 
fruit is hewn down, and cast into 
the fire. 20 Therefore by their 
fruits ye shall know them. 

33 Either make the tree good, 
and its fruit good ; or make the 
tree corrupt, and its fruit corrupt : 
for the tree is known by its fruit. 
34 Ye offspring of vipers, how can 
ye, being evil, speak good things? 
for out of the abundance of the 
heart the mouth speaketh. ^ The 
good man out of his good treasure 
bringeth forth good things : and 



the evil man out of his evil treas 
ure bringeth forth evil things. 



43 For there is no good tree that 
bringeth forth corrupt fruit ; nor 
again a corrupt tree that bringeth 
forth good fruit. 44 For each tree 
is known by its own fruit. For 
of thorns men do not gather figs, 
nor of a bramble bush gather they 
grapes. 



45 The good man out of the 
good treasuie of his heart bring 
eth forth that which is good ; and 



the evil man out of the evil treas 
ure bringeth forth that which is 
evil : for out of the abundance of 
the heart his mouth speaketh.

VII: 21, 23. 

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 
who is in heaven. w Many will say 
to me in that day, Lord, Lord, 
did we not prophesy by thy name, 
and by thy name cast out demons, 
and by thy name do many * mighty 
works ? 23 And then will I pro 
fess unto them, I never knew you : 
depart from me, ye that work in- 



quity. 



VI : 46 ; XIII : 26, 27. 
46 And why call ye me, Lord,

I say? 



26 Then shall ye begin to say,

ence, and thou didst teach in our 
streets ; 27 and he shall say, I

ers of iniquity.

against that house, and could not 
shake it: " because it had been

The Centurion. 



VIII : 5-13. 



6 And when he was entered into 
Capernaum, there came unto him 
a centurion, beseeching him, 6 and 
saying, Lord, my * servant lieth in 
the house sick of the palsy, griev 
ously tormented. 7 And he saith 
unto him, I will come and heal 
him. 



8 And the centurion answered 
and said, Lord, 

I am not *worthy that 
thou shouldest come under my 
roof; 

but only say *the word, and my 
servant shall be healed. 9 For I 
also am a man * under author 
ity, having under myself soldiers : 
and I say to this one, Go, and he 
joeth ; and to another, Come, and

Do this, and he doeth it. w And

sayings in the ears of the people, 
he entered into Capernaum. 

2 And a certain centurion s * serv 
ant, who was *dear unto him, 
was sick and at the point of death. 
3 And when he heard concerning 
Jesus, he sent unto him elders of 
the Jews, asking him that he would 
come and save his servant. 4 And 
they, when they came to Jesus, 
besought him earnestly, saying, 
He is worthy that thou shouldest 
do this for him ; 5 for he loveth 
our nation, and himself built us 
our synagogue. 6 And Jesus went 
with them. And when he was now 
not far from the house, the cen 
turion sent friends to him, saying 
unto him, Lord, trouble not thy 
self; for I am not * worthy that 
thou shouldest come under my 
roof: r wherefore neither thought 
I myself worthy to come unto 
thee : but say *the word, and my 
servant shall be healed. 8 For I 
also am a man set under author-

when Jesus heard it, he 

marvelled, 

and said to them that fol

you, that many shall come from

Isaac, and Jacob, in the kingdom

the kingdom shall be cast forth into 
the outer darkness : there shall be 
the weeping and gnashing of

centurion, Go thy way ; as thou 
hast believed, so be it done unto 
thee. 

And the servant was healed 
in that hour.

marvelled at him, and turned and 
said unto the multitude that fol

13 28 There shall 
be the weeping and the gnashing 
of teeth, when ye shall see Abra

all the prophets, in the kingdom 
of God, and yourselves cast forth 
without. ^And they shall come 
from the east and west, and from

shall be first, and there are first

2 Now when John heard in the 
prison the works of the Christ, he 

sent by his disciples 3 and said unto 
him, Art thou he that cometh, 
or look we for another ? 



4 And Jesus answered and 
said unto them, Go and tell John 
the things which ye hear and see : 
8 the blind receive their 
sight, and the lame walk, the lepers 
are cleansed, and the deaf hear,

to them. 6 And blessed is he,

him of all these things. 19 And 
John calling unto him * two of his 
disciples sent them to the Lord, 
saying, Art thou he that cometh, 
or look we for another ? 20 And 
when the men were come unto 
him, they said, John the Baptist 
hath sent us unto thee, saying, 
Art thou he that cometh, or look 
we for another ? 21 In that hour 
he cured many of diseases and 
* plagues and evil spirits; and ou 
many that were blind he bestowed

said unto them, Go and tell John

11 Verily I say unto you, Among

hath not arisen a greater than John 
the Baptist : yet he that is * but

greater than he. 12 And from the 
days of John the Baptist until now

from that time the gospel of 
the kingdom of God is preached,

into it. 



7 31 Whereunto then shall I liken 
the men of this generation, and to 
what are they like ? 32 They are 
like unto children that sit in

14 And he was casting out a 

demon that was dumb. And it 
came to pass, when the demon was 
gone out, the dumb man spake; 
and the multitudes marvelled.

Mark. 



22 And the scribes that came down 
from Jerusalem said, He hath 
* Beelzebub, and, *By the prince 
of the demons casteth he out the 
demons. 



Ill: 23-30. 

23 And he called them unto 
him, and said unto them in para 
bles, How can Satan cast out Sa 
tan? 24 And if a kingdom be divided 
against itself, that kingdom cannot 
stand. 25 And if a house be di 
vided against itself, that house will 
not be able to stand. 26 And if 
Satan hath risen up against him 
self, and is divided, he cannot 
stand, but hath an end. 



27 But no one can enter into 
the house of the strong man, and 
spoil his goods, except he first 
bind the strong man ; and then 
he will spoil his house. 



28 Verily I say unto you, All their 



sins shall be forgiven unto the 
sons of men, and their blasphe 
mies wherewith soever they shall 
blaspheme : 



29 but whosoever shall 
blaspheme against the Holy Spirit 
hath never forgiveness, but is 
guilty of an eternal sin : 

so be-

ing, It was never so seen in

: By the prince of the demons 
casteth he out demons. 

12 22 Then was brought unto 
him * one possessed with a demon, 
blind and dumb : and he healed 
him, insomuch that the dumb man 
spake and saw. ^And all the 
multitudes were amazed, and said, 
Can this be the son of David ?

it, they said, This man doth not 
cast out demons, but * by "Beelze

XII : 25-32, 36, 37. 
25 And knowing their thoughts 
he said unto them, 

Every kingdom 

divided against itself is brought to 
desolation ; and every city or 
house divided against itself shall 
not stand: 26 and if Satan casteth 
out Satan, he is divided against 
himself; how then shall his king 
dom stand ? 

^And if I 

by Beelzebub, cast out demons, *by 
whom do your sons cast them out ? 
therefore shall they be your judges. 
28 But if I by the Spirit of God 
cast out demons, then is the king 
dom of God come upon you. 

29 Or how can one enter into

spoil his goods, except he first 
bind the strong man ? and then 
he will spoil his house. 

30 He that is not with me 
is against me ; and he that gather- 
eth not with me scattereth. 

81 Therefore I say unto you, 
Every sin and blasphemy shall 
be forgiven unto men ; but the 
blasphemy against the Spirit shall 
not be forgiven. S2 And whoso 
ever shall speak a word against 
the Son of man, it shall be forgiven 
him ; but whosoever shall speak 
against the Holy Spirit, it shall not 
be forgiven him, neither in this

17 But he, knowing their thoughts, 
said unto them, 

Every kingdom 

divided against itself is brought to 
desolation ; * and a house divided 
against a house falleth. 

is And if 

Satan also is divided against him 
self, how shall his kingdom stand ? 
because ye say that I cast out de 
mons by Beelzebub. 19 And if I 
by Beelzebub cast out demons, by 
whom do your sons cast them out ? 
therefore shall they be your judges. 

20 But if I by the finger of God 
cast out demons, then is the king 
dom of God come upon you. 

21 When the strong man fully 
armed guardeth his own court, his 
goods are in peace : 22 but when a 
stronger than he shall come upon 
him, and overcome him, he taketh 
from him his whole armor wherein 
he trusted, and divideth his 
spoils. ^ He that is not with me 
is against me ; and he that gather- 
eth not with me scattereth.

Against Seeking a Sign. 



XII: 38-12. 

38 Then certain of the scribes 
and Pharisees answered him, say 
ing, Teacher, we would see a 
sign from thee. "But he an 
swered and said unlo Ihem, An 
evil and adullerous generalion 
seekelh after a sign ; and there 
shall no sign be given to it but 
the sign of Jonah the prophel : 
40 for as Jonah was three days and 
three nighls in the belly of the 
* whale ; so shall the Son of man 
be three days Pnd three nights in 
the heart of the earth. 41 The 
men of Nineveh stand up in 
the judgment with this generation, 
and shall condemn it : for they re 
pented at the preaching of Jonah ; 
and behold, *a greater than Jonah 
is here. 42 The queen of the south 
shall rise up in the judgment with 
this generation, and 
shall condemn it : for she came 
from the ends of the earth to hear 
the wisdom of Solomon; and behold, 
a greater than Solomon is here. 



XI : 29-32. 

29 And when the multitudes were 
gathering together unto him, 



he be 
gan to say, This generation is an 
evil generation : it seeketh after a 
sign ; and there shall no sign be 
given to it but the sign of Jonah. 
30 For even as Jonah became a 
sign unto the Ninevites, so shall 
also the Son of man be to this 
generation. 32 The 

men of Nineveh shall stand up in 
the judgment with this generation, 
and shall condemn it : for they re 
pented at the preaching of Jonah ; 
and behold, a greater than Jonah 
is here. 31 The queen of the south

he saith, I will return into my

46 Then goeth he, and taketh with 
* himself seven other spirits more

Parables Address.

IV: 1-9. 

*And again he began to teach 
by the sea side. And there is 
gathered unto him a very great 
multitude, so that he entered into 
a boat, and sat in the sea ; and 
all the multitude were by the sea 
on the land. 2 And he taught 
them many things in parables, and 
said unto them in his teaching, 
3 Hearken : Behold, the sower went 
forth to sow ; 4 and it came to 
pass, as he sowed, some seed fell 

by the way side, and the birds 
came and devoured it. fi And 
other fell on the rocky ground, 
where it hath not much earth ; and 
straightway it sprang up, because 
it had no deepness of earth ; 6 and 
when the sun was risen, it was 
scorched ; and because it had no 
root, it withered away. 7 And 
other fell among the thorns, and 
the thorns grew up, and choked 
it, and it yielded no fruit. 8 And

1 On that day went Jesus out of 
the house, and sat by the sea side. 
2 And there were gathered unto 
him great multitudes, so that he 
entered into a boat, and sat ; and 
all the multitude stood on the 
beach. 3 And he spake to them 
many things in parables, saying, 

Behold, the sower went 
forth to sow ; 4 and 

as he sowed, some seeds fell 

by the way side, and the birds 
came and devoured them : 5 and 
others fell upon the rocky places,

scorched ; and because they had no 
root, they withered away. *And

4 And when a great multitude 
came together, and they of every

he spake 
by a parable :

forth to sow his seed ; and 

as he sowed, some fell 
by the way side ; and it was trod 
den under foot, and the birds 
of the heaven devoured it. 6 And

10 And when he was alone, they 
that were about him with the 
twelve asked of him the parables. 
11 And he said unto them, 

Unto you is given the mystery 
of the kingdom of God : 



but unto them 

that are without, all things are 
done in parables: 12 that seeing 
they may see, and not perceive ; 
and hearing they may hear, and 
not understand ; lest haply they 
should turn again, and it should 
be forgiven them. 



Application of the Parable. 

XIII: 10-15. 

10 And the disciples came, and 
said unto him, Why speakest thou 
unto them in parables ? n And 
he answered and said unto them, 
Unto you it is given to know 
the mysteries of the kingdom of 
heaven, but to them it is not given. 
12 For whosoever hath, to him shall 
be given, and he shall have abun 
dance : but whosoever hath not, 
from him shall be taken away even 
that which he hath. 



I 13 Therefore 

speak I to them in parables ; be 
cause seeing they see not, and hear 
ing they hear not, neither do they 
understand. 

14 And unto them is 
fulfilled the prophecy of Isaiah, 
which saith, 

*By hearing ye shall hear, and 

shall in no wise understand ; 

And seeing ye shall see, and 

shall in no wise perceive : 
15 For this people s heart is waxed 

gross, 

And their ears are dull of hear 
ing, 

And their eyes they have closed ; 
Lest haply they should perceive 

with their eyes, 
And hear with their ears, 
And understand with their heart, 
And should turn again, 
And I should heal them. 



VIII: 9, 10. 

9 And his disciples asked him 
what this parable might be. 10 And 
he said, 

Unto you it is given to know 
the mysteries of the kingdom of 
God: 



but to the rest in parables ; that 
seeing they may not see, and hear 
ing they may not understand. 



"But Blessed are Your Eyes." 



XIII: 16, 17. 

16 But blessed are your eyes, for 
they see ; and your ears, for they 

hear. ir For verily I say unto you, 
that many prophets and righteous 
men desired to see the things 
which ye see, and saw them not ; 
and to hear the things which ye 
hear, and heard them not. 



X : 23, 24. 

23 And turning to the disciples, 
he said privately, Blessed are the 
eyes which see the things that ye 
see, ** for I say unto you, 
that many prophets and kings 
desired to see the things 
which ye see, and saw them not ; 
and to hear the things which ye 
hear, and heard them not.

Interpretation of the Parable of the Sower. 



IV: 13-20. 

18 And he saith unto them, Know 
ye not this parable? and how 
shall ye know all the parables? 
"The sower soweth the word. 
15 And these are they by the way 
side, where the word is sown ; and 
when they have heard, straightway 
cometh Satan, and taketh away 
the word which hath been sown 
in them. 16 And these in like 
manner are they that are sown 
upon the rocky places, who, when 
they have heard the word, straight 
way receive it with joy ; 17 and 
they have no root in themselves, 
but endure for a while ; then, 
when tribulation or persecution 
ariseth because of the word, 
straightway they stumble. 18 And 
others are they that are sown 
among the thorns ; these are they 
that have heard the word, 19 and 
the cares of the * world, and the 
deceitfulness of riches, and the lusts 
of other things entering in, choke 
the word, and it becometh un 
fruitful. 20 And those are they 
that were sown upon the good 
ground ; such as hear the word, 
and accept it, and bear fruit, 
thirtyfold, and sixtyfold, and a 
hundredfold. 



XIII : 18-23. 

18 Hear then ye the parable of 
the sower. 



19 When any one hear- 
eth the word of the kingdom, 
and understandeth it not, then 
cometh the evil one, and snatch- 
eth away that which hath been 
sown in his heart. This is he 
that was sown by the way side. 
20 And he that was sown upon the 
rocky places, this is he that hear- 
eth the word, and straightway 
with joy receiveth it ; 21 yet hath 
he not root in himself, but endur- 
eth for a while ; and when tribu 
lation or persecution ariseth be 
cause of the word, straightway he 
stumbleth. ^ And he that was 
sown among the thorns, this is he 
that heareth the word ; 

and the 

care of the * world, and the de 
ceitfulness of riches, 

choke the 

word, and he becometh unfruitful. 
23 And he that was sown upon the 
good ground, this is he that hear- 
eih the word, and understandeth 
it ; who verily beareth frui% and 
bringeth forth, some a hundred 
fold, some sixty, some thirty. 



VIII: 11-15. 
11 Now the parable is this 



The 

seed is the word of God. 12 And 
those by the way side are they 
that have heard ; then cometh the 
devil, and taketh away the word 
from their heart, that they may 
not believe and be saved. 

13 And 

those on the rock are they who, 
when they have heard, receive the 
word with joy ; and these have no 
root, who for a while believe, and 
in time of temptation fall away. 



14 And that which fell among the 
thorns, these are they that have 
heard, and as they go on their 
way they are choked with cares 
and riches and pleasures of this 
life, and bring no fruit to perfec 
tion. 

16 And that in the good 
ground, these are such as in an 
honest and good heart, having 
heard the word, hold it fast, and 
bring forth fruit with * patience. 



Encouragement of the Understanding. 



IV: 21-25. 



21 And he said unto them, Is the 
lamp brought to be put under the 
bushel, or under the bed, and 
not to be put on the stand ? 

22 For 

there is nothing hid, save that it 
should be manifested ; neither 
was anything made secret, but 
that it should come to light. & If 
any man hath ears to hear, let 
him hear. 2 * And he said unto 
them, Take heed what ye hear: 
with what measure ye mete it 
shall be measured unto you ; and 
more shall be given unto you. 
25 For he that hath, to him shall 
be given : and he that hath not, 
from him shall be taken away even 
that which he hath. 



VIII : 16-18. 

16 And no man when he hath 
lighted a lamp, covereth it with a 
vessel, or putteth it under a bed ; 
but putteth it on a stand, that they 
that enter in may see the light. 
"For nothing is hid, that shall 
not be made manifest ; nor any 
thing secret, that shall not be 
known and come to light. 



heed therefore how ye hear : 



for whosoever hath, to him shall 
be given ; and whosoever hath not, 
from him shall be taken away even 
that which he * thinketh he hath.

Parable of the Sower: Applied to the Field -with 
the Tares. 



IV: 26-29. 

= 6 And he said, So is the king 
dom of God, as if a man should 
cast seed upon the earth ; 2? and 
should sleep and rise night and 
day, and the seed should spring 
up and grow, he knoweth not 
how. s 8 The earth *beareth fruit 
of herself; first the blade, then 
the ear, then the full grain in the 
ear. ^But when the fruit *is ripe, 
straightway he :;! putteth forth the 
sickle, because the harvest is 
come. 



XIII: 24-30. 

24 Another parable set he be 
fore them, saying, The kingdom 
of heaven is likened unto a man 
that sowed good seed in his field : 



26 but while men slept, his enemy 
came and sowed * tares also among 
the wheat, and went away. 26 But 
when the blade sprang up and 
brought forth fruit, then appeared 
the tares also. ^And the serv 
ants of the householder came and 
said unto him, Sir, didst thou 
not sow good seed in thy field ? 
whence then hath it tares ? ^And 
he said unto them, *An enemy 
hath done this. And the serv 
ants say unto him, Wilt thou then 
that we go and gather them up ? 

29 But he saith, Nay ; lest haply 
while ye gather up the tares, ye 
root up the wheat with them. 

30 Let both grow together until the 
harvest : and in the time of the 
harvest I will say to the reapers, 
Gather up first the tares, and bind 
them in bundles to burn them ; 
but gather the wheat into my barn. 

Parable of the Mustard Seed. 



IV: 30-32. 



" And he said, How shall we 
liken the kingdom of God ? or in 
what parable shall we set it forth ? 
31 * It is like a grain of mustard 
seed, which, when it is sown upon 
the earth, though it be less than 
all the seeds that are upon the 
earth, 32 yet when it is sown, 
groweth up, and becometh greater 
than all the herbs, and putteth 
out great branches ; so that the 
birds of the heaven can lodge un 
der the shadow thereof, 



XIII: 31, 32. 

51 Another parable set he before 
them, saying, The kingdom of 
heaven is like unto a grain of 
mustard seed, which a man took, 
and sowed in his field : 32 which 
indeed is less than all seeds; 

but 

when it is grown, it is greater than 
the herbs, and becometh a tree, 
so that the birds of the heaven 
come and lodge m the branches 
thereof. 



XIII: 18, 19. 

18 He said therefore, Unto what 
is the kingdom of God like? and 
whereunto shall I liken it? 19 Itis 
like unto a grain of mustard seed 
which a man took, and cast into 
his own garden ; 

and it grew, and 
became a tree ; 

and the birds ot 
the heaven lodged in the branches 
thereof.

Parable of the Leaven. 

XIII: 33. 

83 Another parable spake he unto 
them : The kingdom of heaven 
is like unto leaven, which a 
woman took, and hid in three 
* measure of meal, till it was all 
leavened. 



Method of Instruction by Parables. 



IV : 33, 34. 

33 And with many such parables 
spake he the word unto them, as 
they were able to hear it ; ** and 
without a parable spake he not 
unto them : but privately to his 
own disciples he expounded all 
things. 



XIII: 34, 35. 

**A11 these things spake Jesus 
in parables unto the multitudes ; 

and 

without a parable spake he noth 
ing unto them : 



86 that it might be 
fulfilled which was spoken through 
the prophet, saying, 
* I will open my mouth in para 
bles ; 

I will utter things hidden from 
the foundation * of the world. 

Interpretation of the Para 
ble of the Field with the 
Tares. 

XIII: 36-43. 

86 Then he left the multitudes, 
and went into the house ; and his 
disciples came unto him, saying, 
Explain unto us the parable of the 
tares of the field. ^And he an 
swered and said, He that soweth 
the good seed is the Son of man ; 
38 and the field is the world ; and 
the good seed, these are the sons 
of the kingdom ; and the tares are 
the sons of the evil one ; ^ and 
the enemy that sowed them is the 
devil : and the harvest is * the end 
of the world ; and the reapers are 
angels. ^As therefore the tares 
are gathered up and burned with 
fire ; so shall it be in the end of 
the world. 41 The Son of man 
shall send forth his angels, and 
they shall gather out of his king 
dom all things that cause stum 
bling, and them that do iniquity, 
42 and shall cast them into the fur 
nace of fire : there shall be the 
weeping and the gnashing of teeth. 
w Then shall the righteous shine 
forth as the sun in the kingdom 
of their Father. He that hath 
ears,* let him hear. 



XIII : 20, 21. 

20 And again he said, Whereunto 
shall I liken the kingdom of God ? 
21 It is like unto leaven, which a 
woman took and hid in three 
* measures of meal, till it was all 
leavened. 



Mark. Matthew. Luke. 

The Double Parable of the 
Hid Treasure and the 
Pearl of Great Price. 

XIII: 44-46. 

44 The kingdom of heaven is 
like unto a treasure hidden in the 
field ; which a man found, and 
hid ; and * in his joy he goeth and 
selleth all that he hath, and buy- 
eth that field. 

** Again, the kingdom of heaven 
is like unto a man that is a mer 
chant seeking goodly pearls : 46 and 
having found one pearl of great 
price, he went and sold all that he 
had, and bought it. 

Parable of the Fishnet. 

XIII : 47-50. 

47 Again, the kingdom of heaven 
is like unto a * net, that was cast 
into the sea, and gathered of every 
kind : 4b which, when it was filled, 
they drew up on the beach ; and 
they sat down, and gathered the 
good into vessels, but the bad 
they cast away. 49 So shall it be 
in * the end of the world : the 
angels shall come forth, and sever 
the wicked from among the right 
eous, M and shall cast them into 
the furnace of fire : there shall 
be the weeping and the gnashing 
of teeth. 

Conclusion of the Para 
bles Address. 

XIII: 51, 52. 

51 Have ye understood all these 
things ? They say unto him, Yea. 
52 And he said unto them, There 
fore every scribe who hath been 
made a disciple to the kingdom of 
heaven is like unto a man that is 
a householder, who bringeth forth 
out of his treasure things new 
and old. 

The Storm on the Sea of Galilee. 
IV : 35-41. VIII : 18, 23-27. VIII : 22-25. 



63 



36 And on that day, when even 
was come, he saith unto them, 
Let us go over unto the other 
side. s 8 And leaving the multi 
tude, they take him with them, 
even as he was, in the boat. And 



18 Now when Jesus saw great 
multitudes about him, he gave 
commandment to depart unto the 
other side. 

23 And when he was entered into 
a boat, his disciples followed him. 



22 Now it came to pass on one 
of those days, that he entered into 
a boat, himself and his disciples ; 
and he said unto them, Let us go 
over unto the other side of the 
lake: 

and they launched forth. 



64 Mark. 

other boats were with him. OT And 
there ariseth a great storm of wind, 
and the waves beat into the boat, 
insomuch that the boat was now 
filling. 3 s And he himself was in 
the stern, asleep on the cushion ; 
and they awake him, and say unto 
him, Teacher, carest thou not that 
we perish ? 



89 And he awoke, and 
rebuked the wind, and said unto 
the sea, Peace, be still. And the 
wind ceased, and there was a great 
calm. 40 And he said unto them, 
Why are ye fearful ? have ye not 
yet faith ? 41 And they feared ex 
ceedingly, and said one to another, 
Who then is this, that even the 
wind and the sea obey him ? 



V: 1-20. 

1 And they came to the other 
side of the sea, into the country of 
the Gerasenes. 2 And when he 
was come out of the boat straight 
way there met him out of the 
tombs a man with an unclean 
spirit, 3 who had his dwelling in 
the tombs : and no man could any 
more bind him, no, not with a 
chain; 4 because that he had been 
often bound with fetters and chains, 
and the chains had been rent 
asunder by him, and the fetters 
broken in pieces : and no man 
had strength to tame him. 6 And 
always, night and day, in the 
tombs and in the mountains, he 
was crying out, and cutting him 
self with stones. 6 And when he 
saw Jesus from afar, he ran and 
* worshipped him ; 7 and crying 
with a loud voice, he saith, What 
have I to do with thee, Jesus, 
thou Son of the Most High God? 
I adjure thee by God, torment me 
not. 8 For he said unto him, 
Come forth, thou unclean spirit, 
out of the man. 



9 And he asked 

him, What is thy name ? And 
he saith unto him, My name is 
*Legion ; for we are many. 10 And 



Matthew. 



24 And behold, there arose a great 
tempest in the sea, insomuch that 
the boat was covered with the 
waves : 

but he was asleep. 2" And 
they came to him, and awoke him, 
saying, Save, Lord ; 

we perish. 

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

velled, saying, What manner of 
man is this, that even the winds 
and the sea obey him ? 



The Gadarenc Demoniac. 

VIII : 28-34. 

28 And when he was come to the 
other side into the country of the 
Gadarenes, there met him two 
possessed with demons, coming 
forth out of the tombs, exceeding 
fierce, so that no man could pass 
by that way. 



And behold, 
they cried out, 

saying, \Vhat 
have we to do with thee, 

thou Son of God ? 
art thou come hither to torment us 
before the time ? 



Luke. 

23 But as they sailed he fell asleep : 
and there came down a storm of 
wind on the lake ; and they were 
filling ivith -water, and were in 
jeopardy. 

24 And they came to him, 
and awoke him, saying, Master, 
master, we perish. 



And he awoke, 

and rebuked the wind and the 
raging of the water : and they 
ceased, and there was a 
calm. 25 And he said unto them, 
Where 

is your faith ? And being afraid 
they marvelled, saying one to an 
other, Who then is this, that he 
commandeth even the winds and 
the water, and they obey him ? 



VIII: 26-39. 

26 And they arrived at the coun 
try of the * Gerasenes, which is 
over against Galilee. ^ And when 
he was come forth upon the land, 
there met him a certain man out 
of the city, who had demons ; 
and for a long time he had worn 
no clothes, and abode not in any 
house, but in the tombs. 



20 And when he 

saw Jesus, he cried out, and fell 
down before him, and 
with a loud voice said, What 
have I to do with thee, Jesus, 
thou Son of the Most High God ? 
I beseech thee, torment me 
not. 29 For he was commanding 
the unclean spirit 
to come out from the man. 
For oftentimes it had seized him: 
and he was kept under guard, and 
bound with chains and fetters; 
and breaking the bands asunder, 
he was driven of the demon into 
the deserts. 3 And Jesus asked 
him, What is thy name ? And he 

said, Legion ; for many demons 






Mark. 

he besought him much that he 
would not send them away out o 
the country. n Now there was 
there on the mountain side a great 
herd of swine feeding. 12 And 
they besought him, saying, Send 
us into the swine, that we may 
enter into them. 13 And he gave 
them leave And the unclean 
spirits came out, and entered into 
the swine : and the herd rushed 
down the steep into the sea, in 
number about two thousand ; and 
they were drowned in the sea. 

14 And they that fed them fled, and 
told it in the city, and in the coun 
try. And they came to see what 
it was that had come to pass. 

15 And they come to Jesus, and be 
hold * him that was possessed with 
demons sitting, clothed and in 
his right mind, even him that had 
the legion ; and they were afraid. 

16 And they that saw it declared 
unto them how it befell him that 
was possessed with demons, and 
concerning the swine. lr And they 
began to beseech him to depart 
from their borders. 18 And as he 
was entering into the boat, he that 
had been possessed with demons 
besought him that he might be 
with him. 19 And he suffered him 
not, but saith unto him, Go to thy 
house unto thy friends, and tell 
them how great things the Lord 
hath done for thee, and how he 
had mercy on thee. 20 And he went 
his way, and began to publish in De- 
capolis how great things Jesus had 
done forhim: andall men marvelled. 



Matthew. 



30 Now there 

was afar off from them a herd ol 
many swine feeding. 31 And the 
demons besought him, saying, If 
thou cast us out, send us away into 
the herd of swine. 32 And he 
said unto them, Go. And they 
came out, and went into the 
swine : and behold, the whole 
herd rushed down the steep into 
the sea, and perished in the waters. 
33 And they that fed them fled, and 
went away into the city, and told 
everything, and what was befallen 
to them that were possessed with 
demons. 34 And behold, all the 
city came out to meet Jesus : and 
when they saw him, 



Luke. 



65 



they besought 
him that he would depart from 
their borders. 



were entered into him. 31 And 
they entreated him that he would 
not command them to depart into 
the abyss. 32 Now there was there 
a herd of many swine feeding o h 
the mountain : and they entreated 
him that he would give them leave 
to enter into them. And he gave 
them leave. S3 And the demons 
came out from the man, and en 
tered into the swine : and the herd 
rushed down the steep into the 
lake, and were drowned. ^And 
when they that fed them saw what 
had come to pass, they fled, and 
told it in the city and in the coun 
try. 85 And they went out to see 
what had come to pass ; and they 
came to Jesus, and found the man, 
from whom the demons were gone 
out, sitting, clothed and in his 
right mind, at the feet of Jesus : 
and they were afraid. S" And they 
that saw it told them how he that 
was possessed with demons was 
* made whole. & And all the peo 
ple of the country of the Gerasenes 
round about asked him to depart 
from them ; for they were holden 
with great fear: and he entered 
into a boat, and returned. & But 
the man from whom the demons 
were gone out prayed him that he 
might be with him : but he sent 
him away, saying, 3 Return to thy 
house, and declare how great 
things God hath done for thee. 
And he went his way, publishing 
throughout the whole city how 
real things Jesus had done for 
turn. 



Jairus Daughter, and the Woman with the Bloody Flux. 



V: 21-43. 

21 And when Jesus had crossed 
over again in the boat unto the 
other side, a great multitude was 
gathered unto him ; and he was 
by the sea. 22 And there cometh 
one of the rulers of the syna 
gogue, Jairus by name ; and see 
ing him, he falleth at his feet, 
23 and beseecheth him much, say 
ing, My little daughter is at the 
point of death : / pray thee, that 
thou come and lay thy hands on 
her, that she may be * made whole, 
and live. 24 And he went with 
him ; and a great multitude fol 
lowed him, and they thronged him.

IX: 18-26. 

18 While he spake these things 
unto them, 



behoM, there came *a 
ruler, 

and worshipped him, 

saying, 

My daughter is even now dead : 
but come and lay thy hand upon 
her, and she shall live. 19 And 
Jesus arose, and followed him, and 
so did his disciples. 

20 And be- 



VIII : 40-56. 

40 And as Jesus returned, the 
multitude welcomed him ; for they 
were all waiting for him. 

And 

behold, there came a man named 
Jairus, and he was a ruler of the 
synagogue : and he fell down at 
Jesus feet, and besought him to 
come into his house ; 42 for he had 
an only daughter, about twelve 
years of age, and she was dying. 



But as he went the multitudes 
thronged him.

Mark. 



25 And a woman, who had an 
issue of blood twelve years, 26 and 
had suffered many things of many 
physicians, and had spent all that 
she had, and was nothing bettered, 
but rather grew worse, a having 
heard the things concerning Jesus, 
came -in the crowd behind, and 
touched his garment. ^For she 
said, If I touch but his garments, 
I shall be made whole. ^And 
straightway the fountain of her 
blood was dried up ; and she felt 
in her body that she was healed 
of her * plague. ^ And straight 
way Jesus, perceiving in himself 
that the power proceeding from 
him had gone forth, turned him 
about in the crowd, and said, Who 
touched my garments ? 31 And his 
disciples said unto him, Thou seest 
the multitude thronging thee, and 
sayest thou, Who touched me? 



32 And he looked round about to 
see her that had done this thing. 
83 But the woman fearing and 
trembling, knowing what had been 
done to her, came and fell down 
before him, and told him all the 
truth. 

3* And 

he said unto her, Daughter, thy 
faith hath made thee whole ; go 
in peace, and be whole of thy 
plague. 

35 While he yet spake, they come 
from the ruler of the synagogue s 
house, saying, Thy daughter is 
dead: why troubles! thou the 
Teacher any further ? ^ But Jesus, 
" not heeding the word spoken, 
saith unto the ruler of the syna 
gogue, 

Fear not, only believe.

low with him, save Peter, and 
James, and John the brother of 
James. ^ And they come to the 
house of the ruler of the syna 
gogue; and he beholdeth a tumult, 
and many weeping and wailing 
greatly. 39 And when he was en

make ye a tumult, and weep ? the

der of his garment : 21 for she said 
within herself, If I do but touch his 
garment, I shall be * made whole. 



22 But Jesus turning and seeing 
her said, Daughter, be of good 
cheer; thy faith hath* made thee 
whole. And the woman was 
made whole from that hour. 



23 And when Jesus came into the 
ruler s house, and saw the flute- 
players, and the crowd making a 
tumult, 24 he said, Give place : for 
the damsel is not dead, but sleep 
eth. And they laughed him to 
scorn. 2 s But when the crowd was 
put forth, 



Luke. 

43 And a woman hav 
ing an issue of blood twelve years, 
who *had spent all her living 
upon physicians, and could not be 
healed of any, 

44 came behind him, 
and touched the border of his 
garment : 



and immediately the issue 
of her blood stanched. 



Jesus said, Who is it that touched 
me ? And when all denied, Peter 
said, *and they that were with 
him, Master, the multitudes press 
thee and crush thee. ** But Jesus 
said. Some one did touch me ; for 
I perceived that power had gone 
forth from me. 47 And when the 
woman saw that she was not hid, 
she came trembling, and falling 
down before him declared in the 
presence of all the people for what 
cause she touched him, and how 
she was healed immediately. 48 And 
he said unto her, Daughter, thy 
faith hath *made thee whole; go 
in peace. 

49 While he yet spake, there 
cometh one from the ruler of the 
synagogue s house, saying, Thy 
daughter is dead ; trouble not the 
Teacher. 

60 But Jesus hearing it, 
answered him, Fear not : only be 
lieve, and she shall be * made 
whole. 51 And when he came to 
the house, he suffered not any man 
to enter in with him, save Peter, 
and John, and James, and the 
father of the maiden and her 
mother. 

52 And all were weeping, 
and bewailing her : 

but he said, 

Weep not ; for she is not dead, 
but sleepeth. & And they laughed 
him to scorn, knowing that she 
was dead.

The Widow s Son ofNain. 

(VII: 11-17. 

11 And it came to pass * soont 
afterwards, that he went to a city- 
called Nain ; and his disciples 
went with him, and a great multi 
tude. 12 Now when he drew near 
to the gate of the city, behold, 
there was carried out one that was 
dead, the only son of his mother, 
and she was a widow : and much 
people of the city was with her. 
13 And when the Lord saw her, he 
had compassion on her, and said 
unto her, Weep not. "And he 
came nigh and touched the bier : 
and the bearers stood still. And 
ic said, Young man, I say unto 
thee, Arise. ls And he that was 
dead sat up, and began to speak. 
And he gave him to his mother.

hey glorified God, saying, A great

his report went forth concernnig

synagogue :

Jesus had finished these parables, 
he departed thence.

country he taught them in their

IV: 16-30. 

16 And he came to Nazareth, 
where he had been brought up :

He hath sent me to proclaim 

release to the captives, 
And recovering of sight to the

To set at liberty them that are 
bruised,

of the Lord. 

20 And he closed the book, and 
;ave it back to the attendant, and 

sat down : and the eyes of all in 
he synagogue were fastened on 
him. 21 And he began to say unto 
them, To-day hath this scripture 
aeen fulfilled in your ears. 22 And 
all bare him witness, and won 
dered at the words of grace which 
proceeded out of his mouth : and 
they said, Is not this Joseph s son ?

less ye will say unto me this para

soever we have heard done at 
Capernaum, do also here in thine

Verily I say unto you, No prophet

There were many widows in Israel

The Mission of the Twelve 

IX: 3S-X: 1, 5-16. 

9 s5 And Jesus went about all 
the cities and the villages, teach 
ing in their synagogues, and preach 
ing the gospel of the kingdom, 
and healing all manner of disease 
and all manner of sickness. * But 
when he saw the multitudes, he 
was moved with compassion for 
them, because they were dis 
tressed and scattered, as sheep not 
having a shepherd. 37 Then saith 
he unto his disciples, The harvest 
indeed is plenteous, but the labor 
ers are few. ^Pray ye therefore 
the Lord of the harvest, that he 
send forth laborers into his harvest. 

10 a And he called unto him his 
twelve disciples, and gave them 
authority over unclean spirits, to 
cast them out, and to heal all 
manner of disease and all manner 
of sickness. 



6 These twelve Jesus 
sent forth, and charged them, say 
ing, Go not into any way of the 
Gentiles, and enter not into any 
city of the Samaritans : 6 but go 
rather to the lost sheep of the 
house of Israel. 1 And as ye go, 
preach, saying, The kingdom of 
heaven is at hand. 8 Heal the 
sick, raise the dead, cleanse the 
lepers, cast out demons : freely ye 
received, freely give. 9 Get you 
no gold, nor silver, nor brass in 
your * purses ; ] no wallet for 
your journey, neither two coats, 
nor shoes, nor staff : for the laborer 
is worthy of his food. 



the synagogue, as they heard these 
things J 29 and they rose up, and 
cast him forth out of the city, and 
led him unto the brow of the hill 
whereon their city was built, that 
they might throw him down head 
long. "But he passing through 
the midst of them went his way. 



IX : 1-5 ; X : 1-12 : XIII : 22. 
13 22 And he went on his way 
through cities and villages, teach 
ing, and journeying on unto Jeru 
salem. 



10 2 And he said unto them, 

The harvest 

indeed is plenteous, but the labor 
ers are few : pray ye therefore 
the Lord of the harvest, that he 
send forth laborers into his harvest. 

9 1 And he called the twelve to 
gether, and gave them power and 
authority over all demons, and to 
cure diseases. 



10 * Now after these things the 
Lord appointed seventy * others, 
and sent them two and two before 
his face into every city and place, 
whither he himself was about to 



9 2 And he sent them forth to 
preach the kingdom of God, and 
to heal * the sick. 



3 And he said unto them, Take 
nothing for your journey, neither 
staff, nor wallet, nor bread, nor 
money ; neither have two coats. 



70 



Mark. 



10 And he said unto them, 
Wheresoever ye enter into a 
house; there abide till ye depart 
thence. 



11 And whatsoever place shall not 
receive you, and they hear you not, 
as ye go forth thence, shake off 
the dust that is under your feet 
for a testimony unto them. 



Matthew. 



11 And into whatsoever city or vil- 
age ye shall enter, search out who 

n it is worthy ; and there abide till 
ye go forth. 12 And as ye enter into 
the house, salute it. 13 And if the 

louse be worthy, let your peace 
come upon it : but if it be not 
worthy, let your peace return to 
you. 



14 And whosoever shall not re 
ceive you, nor hear your words, as ye 
go forth out of that house or that 
city, shake off the dust of your feet. 



15 Verily I say unto you. 
It shall be more tolerable for the 
land of Sodom and Gomorrah in 
the day of judgment, than for that 
city. 16 Behold, I send you forth as 
sheep in the midst of wolves : be 
ve therefore wise as serpents, and 
harmless as doves. 



Luke. 

10 4 Carry no purse, no wallet, 
no shoes ; and salute no man on 
the way. 



9 4 And into whatsoever house 
ye enter, there abide, and thence 
depart. 



10 5 And into whatsoever 
house ye shall * enter, first say, 
Peace be to this house. 6 And if 
if a son of peace be there, your 
peace shall rest upon * him : but 
if not, it shall turn to you again. 
7 And in that same house remain, 
eating and drinking such things as 
they give : for the laborer is 
worthy of his hire. Go not from 
house to house. 8 And into what 
soever city ye enter, and they re 
ceive you, eat such things as are 
set before you: 9 and heal the sick 
that are therein, and say unto 
them, The kingdom of God is 
come nigh unto you. 

9 5 And as many as receive you 
not, when ye depart from that 
city, shake off the dust from your 
feet for a testimony against them. 

10 10 But into whatsoever city 
ye shall enter, and they receive 
you not, go out into the streets 
thereof and say, ]1 Even the dust 
from your city, that cleaveth to 
our feet, we wipe off against you : 
nevertheless know this, that the 
kingdom of God is come nigh. 
12 1 say unto you, It shall be more 
tolerable in that day for Sodom, 
than for that city. 

3 Go your ways ; behold, I send 
you forth as lambs in the midst 
of wolves. 



Woes Upon the Galilean Cities. 



XI: 20-24. 

20 Then began he to upbraid the 
cities wherein most of his * mighty 
works were done, because they

Prediction of the Disciples Fate, 

X: 17-25. XII: 11, 12. 

17 But beware of men : for they 
will deliver you up to councils, 
and in their synagogues they will 
scourge you ; 18 yea and before 
governors and kings shall ye be 
brought for my sake, for a testi 
mony to them and to the Gentiles. 
19 But when they deliver you up, 
be not anxious how or what ye 
shall speak : for it shall be given 
you in that hour what ye shall 
speak. 20 For it is not ye that 
speak, but the Spirit of your 
Father that speaketh in you. 21 And 
brother shall deliver up brother to 
death, and the father his child : 
and children shall rise up against 
parents, and cause them to be 
put to death. ^And ye shall be 
hated of all men for my name s 
sake : but he that endureth to the 
end, the same shall be saved. 
23 But when they persecute you in 
this city, flee into the next : for 
verily I say unto you, Ye shall not 
have gone through the cities of 
Israel, till the Son of man be 
come. 

24 A disciple is not above his 
teacher, nor a * servant above his 
lord. ^It is enough for the dis 
ciple that he be as his teacher, and 
the servant as his lord. If they 
have called the master of the 
house * Beelzebub, how much 
more them of his household ! 



11 And when they bring you be 
fore the synagogues, and the rulers, 
and the authorities, be not anxious 
how or what ye shall answer, or 
what ye shall say : i 2 for the Holy 
Spirit shall teach you in that very 
hour what ye ought to say.

Summons to Fearless Confession. 



X: 26-33. 

26 Fear them not therefore : for 
there is nothing covered, that 
shall not be revealed ; and hid, 
that shall not be Known. 

27 What 

I tell you in the darkness, speak 
ye in the light ; and what ye hear 
in the ear, proclaim upon the 
house-tops. 

28 And be not afraid 
of them that kill the body, but 
are not able to kill the soul : 

but 

rather fear him who is able to 
destroy both soul and body in 
*hell. 

29 Are not two sparrows 
sold for a penny ? and not one of 
them shall fall on the ground 
without your Father : 8 but the 
very hairs of your head are all 
numbered. sl Fear not therefore : 
ye are of more value than many 
sparrows. 32 Every one therefore 
who shall confess *me before men, 
*him will I also confess before my 
Father who is in heaven. ^ But 
whosoever shall deny me before 
men, him will I also deny before 
my Father who is in heaven. 



XII: 2-9. 

2 But there is nothing covered 
up, that shall not be revealed ; 
and hid, that shall not be known. 
s Wherefore whatsoever ye have 
said in the darkness shall be heard 
in the light ; and what ye have 
spoken in the ear in the inner 
chambers shall be proclaimed upon 
the house-tops. 4 And I say unto 
you my friends, Be not afraid of 
them that kill the body, and after 
that have no more that they can 
do. 5 But I will warn you whom 
ye shall fear : Fear him, who 
after he hath killed hath "power 
to cast into * hell ; yea, I say unto 
you, Fear him. 6 Are not five 
sparrows sold for two pence ? and 
not one of them is forgotten in the 
sight of God. 7 But the very 
hairs of your head are all num 
bered. Fear not : ye are of more 
value than many sparrows. 8 And 
I say unto you, Every one who 
shall confess *me before men, 
* him shall the Son of man also 
confess before the angels of God : 
9 but he that denieth me in the 
presence of men shall be denied 
in the presence of the angels of 
God. 



Discord Among Neighbors. 



X: 34-36. 

34 Think not that I came to *send 
peace on the earth : I came not to 
* send peace, but a sword. ^ For 
I came to set a man at variance 
against his father, and the daugh 
ter against her mother, and the 
daughter in law against her mother 
in law : ^and a man s foes shall 
lie they of his own household. 



XII: 51-53. 

61 Think ye that I am come to give 
peace in the earth ? I tell you, Nay; 
but rather division : fi2 for there shall 
be from henceforth five in one 
house divided, three against two, 
and two against three. ^ They shall 
be divided, father against son, and 
son against father ; mother against 
daughter, and daughter against 
her mother ; mother in law against 
her daughter in law, and daughter 
in law against her mother in law.

their cities.

Caution Against Entering 
Discipleship Unadvisedly. 

XIV: 28-33. 

28 For which of you, desiring to 
build a tower, doth not first sit 
down and count the cost, whether 
he have wherewith to complete 
it? 29 Lest haply, when he hath 
laid a foundation, and is not able 
to finish, all that behold begin to 
mock him, 30 say ing, This man be 
gan to build, and was not able to 
finish. 31 Or what king, as he 
goeth to encounter another king in 
war, will not sit down first and 
take counsel whether he is able 
with ten thousand to meet him that 
cometh against him with twenty 
thousand? 32 Or else, while the 
other is yet a great way off, he 
;endeth an ambassage, and asketh 
conditions of peace. ^So there 
fore whosoever he be of you that 
renounceth not all that he hath, 
ic cannot be my disciple.

therefore do these powers work in

Herod s Opinion of Jesus. 

XIV: 1-2. 

1 At that season Herod the 
tetrarch heard the report concern 
ing Jesus, 2 and said unto his 
servants, This is John the Baptist ; 
he is risen from the dead ; and 
therefore do these powers work in 
him. 



IX: 7-9. 

J Now Herod the tetrarch heard 
of all that was done ; and he was 
much perplexed, because that it was 
said by some, that John was risen 
from the dead ; 8 and by some, 
that Elijah had appeared ; and by 
others, that one of the old proph 
ets was risen again. 9 And Herod 
said, John I beheaded : but who 
is this, about whom I hear such 
things ? And he sought to see him. 



The Episode of the Baptist s Death. 



VI: 17-29. 



17 For Herod himself had sent 
forth and laid hold upon John, 
and bound him in prison for the 
sake of Herodias, his brother 
Philip s wife ; for he had married 
her. 18 For John said unto Herod, 
It is not lawful for thee to have 
thy brother s wife. J9 And Hero 
dias set herself against him, and 
desired to kill him ; and she could 
not ; * for Herod feared John, 
knowing that he was a righteous 
and holy man, and kept him safe. 
And when he heard him, he * was 
much perplexed ; and he heard 
him gladly. 21 And when a con 
venient day was come, that Herod 
on his birthday made a supper to 
his lords, and the "high captains, 
and the chief men of Galilee ; 
22 and when * the daughter of He 
rodias herself came in and danced, 
* she pleased Herod and them that 
sat at meat with him ; and the 
king said unto the damsel, Ask of 
me whatsoever thou wilt, and 
I will give it thee. ^And he 
sware unto her, Whatsoever thou 
shall ask of me, I will give it 
thee, unto the half of my king 
dom. 24 And she went out, and 
said unto her mother, What shall 
I ask? And she said, The head 
of John the Baptizer. ^ And she 
came in straightway with haste 
unto the king, and asked, saying, 
I will that thou forthwith give me 
on a platter the head of John the 
Baptist. 2G And the king was ex 
ceeding sorry ; but lor the sake 
of his oaths, and of them that sat 



XIV: 3-12. 

3 For Herod had laid hold on 
John, and bound him, and put him 
in prison for the sake of Herodias, 
his brother Philip s wife. 

4 For John said unto him, 
It is not lawful for thee to have 
her. 



5 And when 

he would have put him to death, 
he feared the multitude, because 
they counted him as a prophet.

the daughter of Herodias danced 
in the midst, and pleased Herod.

oath to give her whatsoever she 
should ask.

forward by her mother, saith, 

Give me here on a platter the

27 And straightway the king sent 
forth a soldier of his guard, and 
commanded to bring his head : and 
he went and beheaded him in the 
prison, w and brought his head on 
a platter, and gave it to the dam

mother. 29 And when his disci 
ples heard thereof, they came and 
took up his corpse, and laid it in 
a tomb.

they were returned, declared unto 
him what things they had done. 



10 17 And the seventy returned 
with joy, saying, Lord, even the 
demons are subject unto us in thy 
name. 1S And he said unto them, 
I beheld Satan fallen as lightning 
from heaven. 19 Behold, I have 
given you authority to tread upon 
serpents and scorpions, and over 
all the power of the enemy : and 
nothing shall in any wise hurt you. 
20 Nevertheless in this rejoice not, 
that the spirits are subject unto 
you ; but rejoice that your names 
are written in heaven.

25 At that season Jesus answered 
and said, I 

thank thee, O Father, Lord of 
heaven and earth, that thou didst 
hide these things from the wise 
and understanding, and didst re 
veal them unto babes: 26 yea, Father, 
"for so it was well-pleasing in 
thy sight. 27 All things have been 
delivered unto me of my Father :

the Father ; neither doth any know

to whomsoever the Son willeth to

31 And he saith unto them, 
Come ye yourselves apart into a 
desert place, and rest awhile. For 
there were many coming and go 
ing, and they had no leisure so 
much as to eat. 32 And they went 
away in the boat to a desert place 
apart. ^ And the people saw them 
going, and many knew them, and 
they ran together there *on foot 
from all the cities, and outwent 
them. M And he came forth and 
saw a great multitude, and he had 
compassion on them, because they 
were as sheep not having a shep 
herd : and he began to teach them 
many things. ^ And when the 
day was now far spent, his disci 
ples came unto him, and said, The 
place is desert, and the day is now 
far spent : ^ send them away, that 
they may go into the country and 
villages round about, and buy 
themselves somewhat to eat. 
37 But he answered and said unto 
them, Give ye them to eat. And 
they say unto him, Shall \ve go 
and buy two hundred " shillings 
worth of bread, and give them to 
eat ? ^ And he saith unto them, 
How many loaves have ye ? go and 
see. And when they knew, they 
say, Five, and two fishes. 

89 And 

he commanded them that all 
should *sit down by companies 
upon the green grass. 40 And 
they sat down in ranks, by hun 
dreds, and by fifties. 41 And he took 
the five loaves and two fishes, 
and looking up to heaven, he 
blessed, and brake the loaves ; and 
he gave to the disciples to set 
before them ; and the two fishes 
divided he among them all. ^ And 
they all ate, and were fi 1 1 e d .

broken 

pieces, twelve basketfuls, and also 
of the fishes. 44 And they that ate 
the loaves were five thousand men.

Feeding the Five Thousand. 

XIV: 13-21. 



Luke. 



13 Now when Jesus heard it, he 
withdrew from thence in a boat, 
to a desert place apart : and when 
the multitudes heard thereof, they 
followed him *on foot from the 
cities. 

"And he came forth, and 
saw a great multitude, and he had 
compassion on them, and healed 
their sick. 

15 And when even was 
come, the disciples came to him, 
saying, 

The place is desert, and 
the time is already past ; send the 
multitudes away, that they may 
go into the villages, and buy them 
selves food. 16 But Jesus said unto 
them, They have no need to go 
away ; give them to eat. 



W And 

they say unto him, We have here 
but five loaves, and two fishes. 
18 And said, Bring them hither to 
me. 

19 And he commanded the 
multitudes to *sit down on the 
grass ; 

and he took 

the five loaves, and the two fishes, 
and looking up to heaven, he 
blessed, and brake and gave the 
loaves to the disciples, and the 
disciples to the multitudes. 

20 And 

they all ate, and were filled : 
and they took up that which 
remained over of the broken 
pieces, twelve baskets full. 

21 And they that did eat 
were about five thousand men, be 
sides women and children. 



IX: 106-17. 



And he took them, and with 
drew apart to a city called Beth- 
saida. 

11 But the multitudes per 
ceiving it followed him : and he 
welcomed them, and spake to them 
of the kingdom of God, and them 
that had need of healing he cured. 



12 And the day began to wear 
away ; and the twelve came, and 
said unto him, Send the multitude 
away, that they may go into the 
villages and country round about, 
and lodge, and get provisions : 
for we are here in a desert place. 

13 But he said unto them, 

Give ye them to eat. 



And they said, We 
have no more than five loaves and 
two fishes ; except we should go 
and buy food for all this people. 
14 For they were about five thou- 
[ sand men. And he said unto his 
disciples, Make them * sit down 
in companies, about fifty each. 
lfi And they did so, and made 
them all * sit down. 16 And he took 
the five loaves and the two fishes, 
and looking up to heaven, he 
blessed them, and brake ; and gave 
to the disciples to set before the 
multitude. 

"And 

they ate, and were all fi 1 1 e d : 
and there was taken up that which 
remained over to them of broken 
pieces, twelve baskets.

Walking on 

VI : 45-52. 

45 And straightway he c o n - 
strained his disciples to enter into 
the boat, and to go before him 
unto the other side to Bethsaida, 
while he himself sendeth the mul 
titude away. 46 And after he had 
taken leave of them, he departed 
into the mountain to pray. 47 And 
when even was come, the boat 
was in the midst of the sea, and 
he alone on the land. 4S And 
seeing them distressed in rowing, 
for the wind was contrary unto 
them, about the fourth watch of 
the night he cometh unto them, 
walking on the sea ; and he would 
have passed by them : 49 but they, 
when they saw him walking on 
the sea, supposed that it was a 
ghost, and cried out ; 5 for they 
all saw him, and were troubled. 
But he straightway spake with 
them, and saith unto them, Be of 
good cheer : it is I : be not afraid. 



1 And he went up unto them into 
the boat ; and the wind ceased : 
and they were sore amazed in 
themselves ; 52 for they understood 
not concerning the loaves, but 
their heart was hardened.

XIV: 22-33. 

M And straightway .he con 
strained the disciples to enter into 
the boat, and to go before him 
unto the other side, till he should 
send the multitudes away. 23 And 
after he had sent the multitudes 
away, he went up into the moun 
tain apart to pray : 

and when even 

was come, he was there alone. 24 But 
the boat "was now in the midst 
of the sea, distressed by the waves ; 
for the wind was contrary. 25 And 
in the fourth watch of the night 
he came unto them, walking upon 
the sea. 26 And when the disci 
ples saw him walking on the sea, 
they were troubled, saying, It is 
a ghost ; and they cried out for 
fear. 

27 But straightway Jesus 
spake unto them, saying, Be of 
good cheer ; it is I ; be not afraid. 

28 And Peter answered him and 
said, Lord, if it be thou, bid me 
come unto thee upon the waters. 

29 And he said, Come. And Peter 
went down from the boat, and 
walked upon the waters * to come 
to Jesus. 30 But when he saw the 

* wind, he was afraid ; and be 
ginning to sink, he cried out, 
saying, Lord, save me. 31 And 
immediately Jesus stretched forth 
his hand, and took hold of him, 
and saith unto him, O thou of little 
faith, wherefore didst thou doubt? 

32 And when they were gone up 
into the boat, the wind ceased. 

33 And they that were in the boat 

* worshipped him, saying, Of a 
truth thou art the Son of God.

Concerning the Washing of Hands. 

VII: 1-23. XV: 1-20. 



*And there are gathered to 
gether unto him the Pharisees, 
and certain of the scribes, who 
had come from Jerusalem, 2 and 
had seen that some of his disci 
ples ate their bread with * defiled, 
that is, unwashen, hands. 3 ( For 
the Pharisees, and all the Jews, 
except they wash their hands " dil 
igently, eat not, holding the tradi 
tion of the elders ; 4 and when 
they come from the market-place, 
except they * bathe themselves, 
they eat not ; and many other 
things there are, which they have 
received to hold, * washings of 
cups, and pots, and brasen ves 
sels.*) 6 And the Pharisees and 
the scribes ask him, Why walk not 
thy disciples according to the tra 
dition of the elders, but eat their 
bread with defiled hands? 



6 And 

he said unto them, Well did Isaiah 
prophesy of you hypocrites, as it 
is written, 
*This people honoreth me with 

their lips, 

But their heart is far from me. 

7 But in vain do they worship me, 

Teaching as their doctrines the 

precepts of men. 

8 Ye leave the commandment of 
God, and hold fast the tradition 
of men. 9 And he said unto them, 
Full well do ye reject the com 
mandment of God, that ye may 
keep your tradition. 10 For Moses 
said, * Honor thy father and thy 
mother ; and, He that speaketh 
evil of father or mother, let him 
*die the death : J1 but ye say, If 
a man shall say to his father or 
his mother, That where with thou 



1 Then there come to Jesus from 
Jerusalem Pharisees and scribes, 
saying, 



2 Why do thy disciples 
transgress the tradition of the eld 
ers ? for they wash not their hands 
when they eat bread. 3 And he 
answered and said unto them, 
Why do ye also transgress the 
commandment of God because of 
your tradition ? 

7 Ye hypocrites, well did Isaiah 
prophesy of you, saying, 

8 * This people honoreth me with 

their lips ; 

But their heart is far from me. 
9 But in vain do they worship me, 
Teaching as their doctrines the 
precepts of men. 



* For God 

said, * Honor thy father and thy 
mother : and, * He that speaketh 
evil of father or mother, let him 
*die the death. 5 But ye say, Who 
soever shall say to his father or 
his mother, That wherewith thou 



Mark. 

mightest have been profited by me 
is Corban, that is to say, Given to 
God ; 12 ye no longer suffer him to 
do aught for his father or his 
mother ; is making void the word 
of God by your tradition, which 
ye have delivered : and many such 
like things ye do. 14 And he called 
to him the multitude again, and 
said unto them, Hear me all ol 
you, and understand ; 15 there is 
nothing from without the man, 
that going into him can defile 
him ; but the things which pro 
ceed out of the man are those that 
defile the man. 5 



17 And when he 

was entered into the house from the 
multitude, his disciples asked of 
him the parable. 18 And he saith 
unto them, Are ye so without un- 
derstandiug also? Perceive ye 
not, that whatsoever from without 
goeth into the man, it cannot de 
file him ; 19 because it goeth not 
into his heart, but into his belly, 
and goeth out into the draught? 
This he said, making all meats 
clean. 20 And he said, That 
which proceedeth out of the man, 
that defileth the man. 21 For 
from within, out of the heart of 
men, * evil thoughts proceed, for 
nications, thefts, murders, adul 
teries, 22 covetings, wickednesses, 
deceit, lasciviousness, an evil eye, 
railing, pride, foolishness : 23 all 
these evil things proceed from 
within, and defile the man. 



Matthew. 

mightest have been profited by me

God; 6 he shall not honorhis father. 

And ye have made void the * word 
of God because of your tradition. 



10 And he called to him the multi 
tude, and said unto them, Hear, 
and understand : u Not that which 
entereth into the mouth defileth 
the man ; but that which pro 
ceedeth out of the mouth, this 
defileth the man. 12 Then came 
the disciples, and said unto him, 
Knowest thou that the Pharisees 
were * offended, when they heard 
this saying ? 13 But he answered 
and said, Every * plant which my 
heavenly Father planted not, shall 
be rooted up. 14 Let them alone : 
they are blind guides. And if the 
blind guide the blind, both shall 
fall into a pit. 

lfi And Peter an 
swered and said unto him, De 
clare unto us the parable. 16 And he 
said, Are ye also even yet without 
understanding? 17 Perceive ye 
not, that whatsoever goeth into 
the mouth passeth into the belly, 
and is cast out into the draught ? 



18 But the things which proceed 
>ut of the mouth come forth out 
of the heart ; and they defile the 
man. 19 For out of the heart 
:ome forth evil thoughts, murders, 
adulteries, fornications, thefts, 
false witness, railings : 



20 these are 

the things which defile the man ; 
but to eat with unwashen hands 
defileth not the man.

Jesus a Fugitive and a Traveller. 



The Canaanitish Woman. 



VII: 24-30. 

24 And from thence he arose, 
and went away into the borders of 
Tyre * and Sidon. And he entered 
into a house, and would have no 
man know it ; and he could not 
be hid. %> But straightway a 
woman, whose little daughter had 
an unclean spirit, 



having heard of 

him, came and fell down at his 
feet. 26 Now the woman was a 
* Greek, a Syrophcenician by race. 
And she besought him that he 
would cast forth the demon out of 
her daughter. ^ And he said unto 
her, Let the children first be 
filled : for it is not meet to take 
the children s " bread and cast it 
to the dogs. 2S But she answered 
and saith unto him, Yea, Lord ; 
even the dogs under the table eat 
of the children s crumbs. ^And 
he said unto her, For this saying 
go thy way ; the demon is gone 
out of thy daughter. 3 And she 
went away unto her house, and 
found the child laid upon the bed, 
and the demon gone out. 



XV: 21-28. 

81 And Jesus went out thence, 
and withdrew into the parts of 
Tyre and Sidon. 22 And behold, 
a Canaanitish woman came out 
from those borders, and cried, 
saying, Have mercy on me, O 
Lord, thou son of David ; my 
daughter is grievously vexed with 
a demon. 23 But he answered her 
not a word. And his disciples 
came and besought him, saying, 
Send her away ; for she crieth 
after us. 24 But he answered and 
said, I was not sent but unto the 
lost sheep of the house of Israel. 
25 But she came and " worshipped 
him, 



saying, Lord, help me. 

26 And he answered and said, 
It is not meet to take 
the children s "bread and cast it 
to the dogs. 2T But she said, 
Yea, Lord : for even the 
dogs eat of the crumbs which fall 
from their masters table. 28 Then 
Jesus answered and said unto her, 
O woman, great is thy faith : be it 
done unto thee even as thou wilt. 
And her daughter was healed from 
that hour. 



The Tour of the North. 



VII: 31-37. 

31 And again he went out from 
the borders of Tyre, and came 
through Sidon unto the sea of Gali 
lee, through the midst of the borders 
of Decapolis. S2 And they bring 
unto him one that was deaf, and 
had an impediment in his speech ; 
and they beseech him to lay his 
hand upon him. ^ And he took 
h i m aside from the multitude 
privately, and put his fingers into 
his ears, and he spat, and touched 
his tongue ; S4 and looking up to 
heaven, he sighed, and saith unto 
him, Ephphatha, that is, Be 
opened. ^ And his ears were 
opened, and the bond of his 
tongue was loosed, and he spake 



XV: 29-31. 

29 And Jesus departed thence, 
and came nigh unto the sea of 
Galilee ; and he went up into the 
mountain, and sat there. 3 And 
there came unto him great multi 
tudes, having with them the lame, 
blind, dumb, maimed, and many 
others, and they cast them down 
at his feet ; and he healed them :

plain. M And he charged them 
that they should tell no man ; but 
the more he charged them, so 
much the more a great deal they 
published it. 37 And they were 
beyond measure astonished, say- 
iug, Me hath done all things well : 
he maketh even the deaf to hear, 
and the dumb to speak. 



Matthew. 



Luke.

31 insomuch that the multitude 
wondered, when they saw the 
dumb speaking, the maimed whole, 
and the lame walking, and the 
blind seeing : and they glorified 
the God of Israel. 



The Feeding of the Four Thousand. 



VIII: 1-10. 

1 In those days, when there was 
again a great multitude, and they 
had nothing to eat, he called unto 
him his disciples and saith unto 
them, 2 1 have compassion on the 
multitude, because they continue 
with me now three days, and have 
nothing to eat : 3 and if I send 
them away fasting to their home, 
they will faint on the way ; and 
some of them are come from far. 
4 And his disciples answered him, 
Whence shall one be able to fill 
these men with * bread here in a 
desert place ? 5 And he asked 
them, 

How many loaves have ye ? 
And they said, Seven. 6 And he 
commandeth the multitude to sit 
down on the ground ; and he 
took the seven loaves, and having 
given thanks, he brake and gave to 
his disciples, to set before them ; and 
they set them before the multitude. 
7 And they had a few small fishes ; 
and having blessed them, he com 
manded to set these also before 
them. 8 And they ate, and were 
filled : and they took up, of broken 
pieces that remained over, seven 
baskets. 9 And they were about 
four thousand : and he sent them 
away. 10 And straightway he en 
tered into the boat with his dis 
ciples, and came into the parts 
of Dalmanutha. 



XV : 32-39. 



82 And Jesus called unto 
him his disciples, and said, 

I have compassion on the 
multitude, because they continue 
with me now three days and have 
nothing to eat: and I would not send 
them away fasting, lest haply they 
faint on the way. 

33 And the disciples say unto him, 

Whence should we have 
so many loaves in a desert place 
as to fill so great a multitude ? 

34 And Jesus said unto them, How 
many loaves have ye ? And they 
said, Seven, and a few small fishes. 
36 And he commanded the multi 
tude to sit down on the ground ; 
36 and he took the seven loaves 
and the fishes ; and he gave thanks 
and brake, and gave to the dis 
ciples, and the disciples to the 
multitudes. 



37 And they all ate, 
and were filled : and they took up 
that which remained over of the 
broken pieces, seven baskets full. 
38 And they that did eat were four 
thousand men, besides women 
and children. 89 And he sent 
away the multitudes, and entered 
into the boat, and came into the 
borders of Magadan.

sighed deeply in his spirit, and 
saith,

you, There shall no sign be given

left them, and again entering into 
the boat departed to the other side.

said unto them, * When it is even

for the heaven is red. 3 And in 
the morning, It will be foul weather 
to-day : for the heaven is red and 
lowering. 



Luke. 



Ye know how to dis 
cern the face of the heaven; but 

ye cannot discern the signs of the 
times. 4 An evil and adulterous 
generation seeketh after a sign ; 
and there shall no sign be given 
unto it, but the sign of Jonah. 

And he left them and departed. 



64 And he said to the multi 
tudes also, When ye see a cloud 
rising in the west, straightway ye 
say, There cometh a shower ; and 
so it cometh to pass. K And when 
ye see a south wind blowing, ye 
say, There will be a * scorching 
heat ; and it cometh to pass. 
66 Ye hypocrites, ye know how to 
* interpret the face of the earth 
and the heaven ; but how is it 
that ye know not how to * inter 
pret this time ? 



The Leaven of the Pharisees. 



VIII: 14-21. 



14 And they forgot to take bread ; 
and they had not in the boat with 
them more than one loaf. u And 
he charged them, saying, Take 
heed, beware of the leaven of the 
Pharisees and the leaven of Herod. 
16 And they reasoned one with an 
other, * saying, *We have no 
bread. 17 And Jesus perceiving it 
saith unto them, 

Why reason ye, 

because ye have no bread? do ye 
not yet perceive, neither under 
stand? have ye your heart hard 
ened ? 18 Having eyes, see ye 
not ? and having ears, hear ye not ? 
and do ye not remember ? ^ When 
I brake the five loaves among the 
five thousand, how many * baskets

among themselves, saying, *We

The Blind Man of Beth-

VIII: 22-26. 

22 And they come unto Beth- 
saida. And they bring to him a 
blind man, and beseech him to 
touch him. 23 And he took hold 
of the blind man by the hand, 
and brought him out of the vil 
lage ; and when he had spit on 
his eyes, and laid his hands upon 
him, he asked him, Seest thou 
aught? 24 And he looked up, and 
said, I see men ; for I behold 
them as trees, walking. 2 s Then 
again he laid his hands upon his 
eyes ; and he looked sted lastly, 
and was restored, and saw all 
things clearly. -^And he sent 
him away to his home, saying,

VIII : 27-33. 



27 And Jesus went forth, and his 
disciples, into the villages of 
Coesarea Philippi : and on the way 
he asked his disciples, saying unto 
them, Who do men say that I 
am ? %* And they told him, say 
ing, John the Baptist ; and others, 
Elijah ; but others, One of the 
prophets. And he asked 
them, But who say ye that I am ? 
Peter answereth and saith unto 
him, Thou art the Christ. 



XVI: 13-23. 

13 Now when Jesus came into 
the parts of Csesarea Philippi, he 
asked his disciples, saying, Who 
do men say * that the Son of man 
is ? 14 And they said, Some say 
John the Baptist ; some, Elijah ; 
and others, Jeremiah, or one of 
the prophets. 15 He saith unto 
them, But who say ye that I am ? 
16 And Simon Peter answered and 
said, Thou art the Christ, the Son 
of the living God. 17 And Jesus 
answered and said unto him, 
Blessed art thou, Simon Bar- 
Jonah : for flesh and blood hath 
not revealed it unto thee, but my 
Father who is in heaven. 18 And 
I also say unto thee, that thou art 
* Peter, and upon this * rock I will 
build my church ; and the gates of

18 And it came to pass, as he 
was praying apart, the disciples 
were with him : and he asked 
them, saying, Who do the multi 
tudes say that I am ? 19 And they 
answering said, John the Baptist ; 
but others say, Elijah ; and others, 
that one of the old prophets is 
risen again. 20 And he said unto 
them, But who say ye that I am ? 
And Peter answering said, The 
Christ of God.

(r And he charged them that 
they should tell no man of 
him. 

31 And he began to teach them, 

that the Son of man must suffer 
many things, and be rejected by 
the elders, and the chief priests, 
and the scribes, and be killed, and 
after three days rise again. 32 And 
he spake the saying openly. And 
Peter took him, and began to re 
buke him. 

- M But he turning about, 

and seeing his disciples, rebuked 
Peter, and saith, Get thee behind 
me, Satan ; 

for thou mindest not 
the things of God, but the things 
of men.

on earth shall be loosed in heaven. 

20 Then charged he the disciples that 
they should tell no man that he 
was the Christ. 

21 From that time began * Jesus 
to show unto his disciples, that he 
must go unto Jerusalem, and suffer 
many things of 

the elders and chief priests 

and scribes, and be killed, and 
the third day be raised up. 22 And 

Peter took him, and began to re 
buke him, saying, * Be it far from 
thee, Lord : this shall never be 
unto thee. 2 s But he turned, and 

said unto Peter, Get thee behind 
me, Satan : thou art a stumbling- 
block unto me : for thou mindest not 
the things of God, but the things 
of men.

VIII : 34-1X: 1 

8 34 And he called unto him the 
multitude with his disciples, and 
said unto them, If any man would 
come after me, let him deny him 
self, and take up his cross, 
and follow me. ^ For whosoever 
would save his life shall lose it ; 
and whosoever shall lose his life 
for my sake and the gospel s shall 
save it. s6 For what doth it profit 
a man to 

gain the whole world, 
and forfeit his life ? 37 For what 
should a man give in exchange for 
his life? ^For whosoever shall 
be ashamed of me and of my 
words in this adulterous and sinful 
generation, the Son of man also 
snail be ashamed of him, when he 
cometh in the glory of his Father 
with the holy angels. 



9 J And he said unto them, 
Verily I say unto you, 
There are some here of them that 
stand by, who shall in no wise 
taste of death, till they see the 
kingdom of God come with power. 



XVI: 24-28. 

24 Then said Jesus unto h i s 
disciples, 

If any man would 
come after me, let him deny him 
self, and take up his cross, 
and follow me. 25 For whosoever 
would save his life shall lose it ; 
and whosoever shall lose his life 
for my sake shall 

find it. 26 For what shall 
a man be profited, if he shall 
gain the whole world, 
and forfeit his life ? or what 

shall a man give in exchange for 
his life? 



27 For the Son of man shall come 
in the glory of his Father with his 
angels ; and then shall he render 
unto every man according to his 
* deeds. 28 Verily I say unto you, 
There are some of them that 
stand here, who shall in no wise 
taste of death, till they see the Son 
of man coming in his kingdom. 



IX: 23-27. 
23 And he said unto all, 

If any man would 
come after me, let him deny him 
self, and take up his cross daily, 
and follow me. 24 For whosoever 
would save his life shall lose it ; 
but whosoever shall Icse his life 
for my sake, the same shall 
save it. 2* For what is 
a man profited, if he 

gain the whole world, 
and lose or forfeit his own self? 



26 For whosoever shall be 
ashamed of me and of my words, 
of him shall the Son of man be 
ashamed, when he cometh in his 
own glory, and the glory of the 
Father, and of the holy angels.

There are some of them that

And after six days Jesus taketh

a high mountain apart by them 
selves : and he was transfigured 
before them ; 3 and his garments be 
came glistering, exceeding white, 
so as no fuller on earth can whiten 
them. 4 And there appeared unto 
them Elijah with Moses : and they 
were talking with Jesus.

to Jesus, Rabbi, it is good for us 
to be here : and let us make three 
* tabernacles ; one for thee, and one 
for Moses, and one for Elijah.

swer ; for they became sore afraid. 

7 And there came a cloud over 
shadowing them : 

and there came 
a voice out of the cloud, 
This is my beloved Son :

8 And suddenly looking round 
about, they saw no one any more,

them that they should tell no man

risen again from the dead. J <>And 
they kept the saying, questioning 
among themselves what the rising

1 And after six days Jesus takelh 
with him Peter, and James, and 
John his brother, and bringeth them 
up into a high mountain apart : 
2 and he was transfigured before 
them ; and his face did shine as 
the sun, and his garments became 
white as the light. 3 And behold, 
there appeared unto them Moses 
and Elijah talking with him. 



4 And Peter answered, and said 
unto Jesus, Lord, it is good for us 
to be here : if thou wilt, I will 
make here three " tabernacles; one 
for thee, and one for Moses, and 
one for Elijah. 

6 While he was yet 
speaking, behold, a bright cloud 
overshadowed them : and behold, 

a voice out of the cloud, saying, 
This is my beloved Son, in whom 
I am well pleased ; hear ye him. 
6 And when the disciples heard it, 
they fell on their face, and were 
sore afraid. 7 And Jesus came and 
touched them and said, Arise, and 
be not afraid. 8 And lifting up 
their eyes, they saw no one, save 
Jesus only.

IX: 28-36. 

28 And it came to pass about 
eight days after these sayings, that 
he took with him Peter and John 
and James, and went up into the 
mountain to pray. ^ And as he 
was praying, the fashion of his 
countenance was altered, and his 
raiment became white and dazzling. 
And behold, there talked with 
him two men, who were Moses 
and Elijah ; 31 who appeared in 
glory, and spake of his * decease 
which he was about to accomplish 
at Jerusalem. 82 Now Peter and 
they that were with him were 
heavy with sleep : but * when they 
were fully awake, they saw his 
glory, and the two men that stood 
with him. 3 s And it came to pass, 
as they were parting from him, 
Peter said unto Jesus, Master, it. 
is good for us 

to be here : and let 
us make three * tabernacles ; one 
for thee, and one for Moses, and 
one for Elijah : not knowing what 
he said. M And while he said 
these things, there came a cloud, 
and overshadowed them : and they 
feared as they entered into the 
cloud. S 5 An/i a voice came out 
of the cloud, saying, This is * my 
Son, my chosen : hear ye him. 



86 And when the voice "" came, 
Jesus was found alone. And they 
held their peace, and told no man 
in those days any of the things 
which they had seen.

Elijah must first come? 12 And he 
said unto them, Elijah indeed 
cometh first, and restoreth all 
things : and how is it written of 
the Son of man, that he should 
suffer many things and be set at 
nought? 13 But I say unto you, 
that Elijah is come, and they have 
also done unto him whatsoever 
they would, even as it is written 
of him. 



IX: 14-29. 

14 And when they came to the 
disciples, they saw a great multi 
tude about them, and scribes ques 
tioning with them. 15 And straight 
way all the multitude, when they 
saw him, were greatly amazed, 
and running to him saluted him. 
16 And he asked them, What ques 
tion ye with them? 17 And one 
of the multitude answered him, 
Teacher, I brought unto thee my 
son, who hath a dur.ib spirit ; 
ls and wheresoever it taketh him, 
it * dasheth him down : and he 
foameth, and grindeth his teeth, 
and pineth away : and I spake to 
thy disciples that they should cast 
it out ; and they were not able. 
1<J And he answereth them and 
saith, O faithless generation, how 
long shall I be with you? how 
long shall I bear with you? bring 
him unto me. 20 And they brought 
him unto him : and when he saw 
him, straightway the spirit tare 
him grievously ; and he fell on the 
ground, and wallowed foaming. 
21 And he asked his father, How 
long time is it since this hath come 
unto him? And he said, From a 
child. 22 And oft-times it hath cast 
him both into the fire and into the 
waters, to destroy him ; but if 
thou canst do anything, have com 
passion on us, and help us. ^And 
Jesus said unto him, If thou canst ! 
All things are possible to him that 
believeth. 24 Straightway the father 
of the child cried out, and said,* 
I believe ; help thou mine unbe 
lief. ^And when Jesus saw that 
a multitude came running together, 



Matthew. 

that Elijah must first come ? n And 
he answered and said, Elijah in 
deed cometh, and shall restore all 
things : 



12 but I say unto you 
that Elijah is come already, and 
they knew him not, but did unto 
him whatsoever they would. Even 
so shall the Son of man also suffer 
of them. 13 Then understood the 
disciples that he spake unto them 
of John the Baptist. 

The Epileptic Boy. 

XVII: 14-20 (21). 

14 And when they were come to 
the multitude, 



there came to him 
a man, kneeling to him, and say 
ing. 

15 Lord, have mercy on my 
son : for he is epileptic, and suf- 
fereth grievously ; for oft-times he 
falleth uito the fire, and oft-times 
into the water. 

16 And I brought 
him to thy disciples, and they could 
not cure him. 17 And Jesus an 
swered and said, O faithless and 
perverse generation, how long 
shall I be with you ? how long 
shall I bear with you? bring him 
hither to me. 



Luke. 



IX : 37-43 ; XVII : 5, 6. 

9 37 And it came to pass, on the 

next day, when they were come 

down from the mountain, a great 

multitude met him. 



88 And behold, 

a man from the multitude cried, 
saying, Teacher, I beseech thee 
to look upon my son ; for he is 
mine only child : ^and behold, a 
spirit taketh him, and he suddenly 
crieth out; and it *teareth him 
that he foameth, and it hardly de- 
parteth from him, bruising him 
sorely. 

40 And I besought thy 
disciples to cast it out ; and they 
could not. 41 And Jesus answered 
and said, O faithless and perverse 
generation, how long shall I be 
with you, and bear with you? 
bring hither thy son. 42 And as 
he was yet a coming, the demon 
* dashed him down, and " tare him. 
grievously.

he rebuked the unclean spirit, say 
ing unto him, Thou dumb and 
deaf spirit, I command thee, come 
out of him, and enter no more 
into him. 26 And having cried 
out, and torn him much, he came 
out : and the boy became as one 
dead ; insomuch that the more 
part said, He is dead. w But 
Jesus took him by the hand, and 
raised him up : and he arose. 



28 And when he was come into 
the house, his disciples asked him 
privately, * How is it that we could 
not cast it out? 



29 And he said unto 
them, This kind can come out by 
nothing, save by prayer.* 



Matthew. 



18 And Jesus rebuked him ; 



Luke. 



87 



and the 



demon went out of him : 



and the boy 
was cured from that hour. 



19 Then 

came the disciples to Jesus apart, 
and said, Why could not we cast 
it out? 20 And he saith unto them, 
Because of your little faith : 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 unto you. 



But Jesus rebuked the unclean 
spirit, 



and healed the boy, and gave 
him back to his father. * 3 And 
they were all astonished at the ma 
jesty of God. 



17 5 And the apostles said unto 
the Lord, Increase our faith. 6 And 
the Lord said, If ye had faith as 
a grain of mustard seed, ye would 
say unto this sycamine tree, Be 
thou rooted up, and be thou 
planted in the sea ; and it would 
obey you. 



Prophecy of His Ozvn Martyrdom. 



IX: 30-32. 



30 And they went forth from 
thence, and passed through Gali 
lee ; and he would not that any 
man should know it. 31 For he 
taught his disciples, and said unto 
them, The Son of man is " deliv 
ered up into the hands of men ; 
and they shall kill him ; and when 
he is killed, after three days he 
shall rise again. 32 But they 
understood not the saying, and 



were afraid to ask him. 



XVII : 22, 23. 

22 And while they * abode in 
Galilee, Jesus said unto them,

said, Doth not your teacher pay 
the half -shekel? ^He saith, 
Yea. And when he came into

IX : 33-37. 

33 And they came to Capernaum : 
and when he was in the house he 
asked them, What were ye reason 
ing on the way ? ** But they held 
their peace : for they had disputed 
one with another on the way, who 
was the * greatest. 36 A n d he 
sat down, and called the twelve ; 
and he saith unto them, If any 
man would be first, he shall be 
last of all, and * servant of all.

and set him in the midst of them, 
and taking him in his arms he said

name, receiveth me : and whoso 
ever receiveth me, receiveth not 
me, but him that sent me. 



XVIII: 1-5. 

1 In that hour came the disci 
ples unto Jesus, saying, Who then 
is * greatest in the kingdom of 
heaven? 



2 And he called to him a little child, 
and set him in the midst of them, 

3 and said, Verily I say unto you, 
Except ye turn, and become as 
little children, ye shall in no wise 
enter into the kingdom of heaven. 

4 Whosoever therefore shall humble 
himself as this little child, the same 
is the greatest in the kingdom of 
heaven. 5 And whoso shall receive 
one such little child in my 
name receiveth me. 



he took a little child, 
and set him by his side, ^ and said 
unto them, 



Whosoever shall receive 
this little child in my 

name receiveth me : and whoso 
ever shall receive me receiveth him 
that sent me : for he that is least 
among you all, the same is great. 



The Strange Wonderworker. 



IX: 38-41. 

38 John said unto him, 
Teacher, we saw one casting out 
demons in thy name ; and we for 
bade him, because he followed not 
us. 39 But Jesus said, Forbid him 
not : for there is no man who shall 
do a * mighty work in my name, 
and be able quickly to speak evil of 
me. 40 For he that is not against 
us is for us. ^For whosoever 
shall give you a cup of water to 
drink, " because ye are Christ s, 
verily I say unto you, he shall in 
no wise lose his reward.

him, Forbid him not : 



for he that is not against

<* And whosoever shall cause one

hanged about his neck, and 
he were cast into the sea. 



<3 And if 

thy hand cause thee to stumble, 
cut it off : it is good for thee to 
enter into life maimed, rather than 
having thy two hands to go into 
*hell, into the unquenchable fire.* 
45 And if thy foot cause thee to 
stumble, cut it off : it is good for 
thee to enter into life halt, rather 
than having thy two feet to be cast 
into hell. 47 And if thine eye 
cause thee to stumble, cast it out : 
it is good for thee to enter into

A Simile Concerning Salt.

Concerning Offences. 

XVIII: 6-9. 



6 But whoso shall cause one 
of these little ones that believe 
on me to stumble, it is profitable for 
him that *a great millstone should 
be hanged about his neck, and 
(hat he should be sunk in the 
depth of the sea. 

7 Woe unto the world because of 
occasions of stumbling! for it 
must needs be that the occasions 
come ; but woe to that man through 
whom the occasion cometh ! 8 And 
if thy hand or thy foot causeth 
thee to stumble, cut it off, and 
cast it from thee : it is good for thee 
to enter into life maimed or halt, 
rather than having two hands or two 
feet to be cast into the eternal fire. 



9 And if thine eye causeth thee to 
stumble, pluck it out, and cast it 
from thee : it is good for thee to 
enter into life with one eye, rather 
than having two eyes to be cast 
into the *hell of fire. 



XVII : 1, 2. 

1 And he said unto his disciples, 
It is impossible but that occa 
sions of stumbling should come ; 
but woe unto him, through whom 
they come! 2 It were well 
for him if a millstone were 
hanged about his neck, and 
he were thrown into the sea, 
rather than that he should cause 
one of these little ones to 
stumble.

Pharisees and the scribes mur 
mured, saying, This man receiveth 
sinners, and eateth with them. 
12 How 3 And he spake unto them this

mountains, and seek that which

hat he find it, verily I say unto 
/ou, he rejoiceth over it more than 
over the ninety and nine which 
lave not gone astray.

t is not the will of :: your Father 
who is in heaven, that one of

leave the ninety and nine in the 
wilderness, and go after that which 
is lost, until he find it? 6 And 
when he had found it, he lay it on 
his shoulders, rejoicing. 6 And 
when he cometh home, he calleth 
together his friends and his neigh 
bors, saying unto them, Rejoice 
with me, for I have found my 
sheep which was lost. 7 I say 
unto you, that even so there shall 
be joy in heaven over one sinner 
that repenteth, more than over 
ninety and nine righteous persons, 
who need no repentance. 

8 Or what woman having ten 
"pieces of silver, if she lose one 
piece, doth not light a lamp, and 
sweep the house, and seek dili 
gently until she find it? 9 And 
wh en she hath found it, she call 
eth together her friends and neigh 
bors, saying, Rejoice with me, for 
I have found the piece which I 
had lost. 10 Even so, I say unto 
you, there is joy in the presence 
of the angels of God over one 
sinner that repenteth. 



Fraternal Obligation. 



XVIII: 15-20. 

15 And if thy brother sin *against 
thee, go, show him his fault be 
tween thee and him alone : if he 
hear thee, thou hast gained thy 
brother. 16 But if he hear thee 
not, take with thee one or two 
more, that at the mouth of two 
witnesses or three every word may 
be established. 17 And if he re 
fuse to hear them, tell it unto the 
* church : and if he refuse to hear 
the church also, let him be unto 
thee as the Gentile and the publi 
can. 18 Verily I say unto you, 
What things soever ye shall bind 
on earth shall be bound in heaven ; 
and what things soever ye shall 
loose on earth shall be loosed in 
heaven. J9 Again I say unto you, 
that if two of you shall agree on 
earth as touching anything that 
they shall ask, it * shall be done 
for them of my Father who is in 
heaven. w For where two or 
three are gathered together in my 
name, there am I in the midst of 
them.

Concerning the Forgiving Spirit. 



XVIII: 21, 22. 
21 Then came Peter and said to 
him, Lord, how oft shall my 
brother sin against me, and I for 
give him? until seven times? 
22 Jesus saith unto him, I say not 
unto thee, Until seven times ; but, 
Until * seventy times seven. 

The Parable of the Wicked 
Servant. 

XVIII: 23-35. 

23 Therefore is the kingdom of 
heaven likened unto a certain king, 
who would make a reckoning with 
his * servants. 24 And when he 
had begun to reckon, one was 
brought unto him, that owed him 
ten thousand * talents. & But for 
asmuch as he had not wherewith 
to pay, his lord commanded him 
to be sold, and his wife, and chil 
dren, and all that he had, and 
payment to be made. 26 The serv 
ant therefore fell down and wor 
shipped him, saying, Lord, have 
patience with me, and I will pay 
thee all. ^And the lord of that 
servant, being moved with com 
passion, released him, and forgave 
him the *debt. ^But that serv 
ant went out, and found one of his 
fellow-servants, who owed him a 
hundred * shillings : and he laid 
hold on him, and took him by the 
throat, saying, Pay what thou 
owest. 29 So his fellow-servant 
fell down and besought him, say 
ing, Have patience with me, and 
I will pay thee. ^ And he would 
not : but went and cast him into 
prison, till he should pay that 
which was due. S1 So when his 
fellow-servants saw what was done, 
they were exceeding sorry, and 
came and told unto their lord all 
that was done. 32 Then his lord 
called him unto him, and saith to 
him, Thou wicked servant, I for 
gave thee all that debt, because 
thou besoughtest me : ^ shouldest 
not thou also have had mercy on 
thy fellow- servant, even as I had 
mercy on thee? ^And his lord 
was wroth, and delivered him to 
the tormentors, till he should pay 
all that was due. ^So shall also

The Journey Toward Judea. 



X: 1. 

1 And he arose from thence, and 

cometh into the borders of Judaea 
and beyond the Jordan ; and mul 
titudes come together unto him 
again ; and, as he was wont, he 
taught them again. 



XIX: 1, 2. 

1 And it came to pass when 
Jesus had finished these words, 
he departed from Galilee, and 
came into the borders of Judaea 
beyond the Jordan ; 2 and great 
multitudes followed him ; and he 
healed them there.

Departure from Galilee. 

XIII: 31-33. 

31 In that very hour there came 
certain Pharisees, saying to him, 
Get thee out, and go hence : for 
Herod would fain kill thee. 32 And 
he said unto them, Go and say to 
that fox, Behold, I cast out de 
mons and perform cures to-day 
and to-morrow, and the third day 
I *am perfected. ^ Nevertheless 
I must go on my way to-day and 
to-morrow and the day following : 
for it cannot be that a prophet 
perish out of Jerusalem. 



The Inhospitable Samari 
tans. 

IX: 51-56. 

41 And it came to pass, when 
the days * were well-nigh come 
that he should be received up, he 
stedfastly set his face to go to 
Jerusalem, and sent messengers 
before his face : 62 and they went, 
and entered into a village of the 
Samaritans, to make ready for 
him. 53 And they did not receive 
him, because his face was as 
though he were going to Jerusa 
lem. M And when his disciples 
James and John saw this, they 
said, Lord, wilt thou that we bid 
fire to come down from heaven, 
and consume them ?* M But he 
turned, and rebuked them.* 56 And 
they went to another village.

unto him, Leave the dead to bury 
their own dead ; but go thou and 
publish abroad the kingdom of 
God. 61 And another also said, 
I will follow thee, Lord ; but first 
suffer me to bid farewell to them 
that are at my house. 62 But Jesus 
said unto him, No man, having 
put his hand to the plow, and 
looking back, is fit for the king 
dom of God. 

The Ministering Women. 

VIII: 1-3. 

1 And it came to pass soon after 
wards, that he went about through 
cities and villages, preaching and 
bringing the good tidings of the 
kingdom of God, and with him 
the twelve, 2 and certain women 
who had been healed of evil 
spirits and infirmities : Mary that 
was called Magdalene, from whom 
seven demons had gone out, s and 
Joanna the wife of Chuza Kerod s 
steward, and Susanna, and many 
others, who ministered unto * them 
of their substance. 

Mary and Martha. 
X: 38-42. 

38 Now as they went on their 
way, he entered into a certain vil 
lage : and a certain woman named 
Martha received him into her 
house. ^And she had a sister 
called Mary, who also sat at the 
Lord s feet, and heard his word. 
40 But Martha was "cumbered about 
much serving ; and she came up 
to him, and said, Lord, dost thou 
not care that my sister did leave 
me to serve alone ? bid her there 
fore that she help me. 41 But the 
Lord answered and said unto her, 
* Martha, Martha, thou art anx 
ious and troubled about many 
things: 42 *but one thing is need 
ful : for Mary hath chosen the 
good part, which shall not be 
taken away from her.

The Pharisees Question About Divorce, 



X: 2-12. 

2 And there came unto him Phar- 
isees, and asked him, Is it 
lawful for a man to put away his 
wife? trying him. 

3 And he answered and said 
unto them, * What did Moses 
command you? 4 And they said, 
Moses suffered to write a bill of 
divorcement, and to put her away. 
*But Jesus said unto them, For 
your hardness of heart he wrote 
you this commandment. 6 But 
from the beginning of the creation, 
Male and female made he them. 

7 For this cause shall a man 
leave his father and mother, * and 
shall cleave to his wife ; 8 and the 
two shall become one flesh : so 
that they are no more two, but 
one flesh. 9 \Vhat therefore God 
hath joined together, let not man 
put asunder. 



i0 And in the house the disciples 
asked him again of this matter. 
11 And he saith unto them, Who 
soever shall put away his wife, and 

marry another, committeth adul 
tery against her: li and if she her 
self shill put away her husband, 
and marry another, she committeth 
adultery. 



XIX: 3-12. 

8 And there came unto him " Phar 
isees, trying him, and saying, Is it 
lawful for a man to put away his 
wife for every cause ? 

4 And he answered and said, 



Have ye not read, " that he who 
:: made them from the beginning 
made them male and female, 6 and 
said, *For this cause shall a man 
leave his father and mother, and 
shall cleave to his wife ; and the 
two shall become one flesh ? 6 So 
that they are no more two, but 
one flesh. What therefore God 
hath joined together, let not man 
put asunder. 7 They say unto 
him, *Why then did Moses com 
mand to give a bill of divorce 
ment, and to put her away ? 8 He 
saith unto them, Moses for your 
hardness of heart suffered you to 
put away your wives : but from 
the beginning it hath not been so. 



9 And I say unto you, Who 
soever shall put away his wife, 
"except for fornication, and shall 
marry another, committeth adul 
tery : * and he that marrieth her 
when she is put away 

committeth 
adultery. 

10 The disciples say unto 
him, If the case of the man is so 
with his wife, it is not expedient 
to marry. J1 But he said unto 
them, Not all men can receive 
this saying, but they to whom it 
is given. 12 For there are eu 
nuchs, that were so born from their 
mother s womb; and there are 
eunuchs that were made eunuchs 
by men: and there are eunuchs, 
that made themselves eunuchs for 
the kingdom of heaven s sake. 
He that is able to receive it, let 
him receive it.

13 And they were bringing unto 
him little children, that he should 
touch them : and the disciples 
rebuked them. 14 But when Jesus 
saw it, he was moved with indig 
nation, and said unto them, Suf 
fer the little children to come unto 
me ; forbid them not : for * to such 
belongeth the kingdom of God. 
15 Verily I say unto you, Whoso 
ever shall not receive the kingdom 
of God as a little child, he shall 
in no wise enter therein. 16 And 
he took them in his arms, and 
blessed them, laying his hands 
upon them. 



Jesus and the Children, 

XIX: 13-15. 

13 Then were there brought unto 
him little children, that he should 
lay his hands on them, and pray : 
and the disciples rebuked them.

Suffer the little 

children, and forbid them not, to 
come unto me : for * to such be 
longeth the kingdom of heaven. 



16 And he laid his hands on them, 
and departed thence. 



XVIII: 15-17. 

15 And they were bringing unto 
him also their babes, that he should 
touch them : but when the disci 
ples saw it, they rebuked them. 

16 But Jesus called 
them unto him, saying, Suffer the 
little children to come unto me, 
and forbid them not : for * to such 
belongeth the kingdom of God. 
17 Verily I say unto you, Whoso 
ever shall not receive the kingdom 
of God as a little child, he shall 
in no wise enter therein. 



Jesus and the Rich Young Ruler. 



X: 17-31. 

17 And as he was going forth 
* into the way, there ran one to him, 
and kneeled to him, and asked 
him, Good Teacher, what shall I 
do that I may inherit eternal life? 
18 And Jesus said unto him, Why 
callest thou me good? 

none is 

good save one, even God. 19 Thou 
knowest the commandments, 

-Do 
not kill, Do not commit adultery, 

Do not steal, Do not bear false 
witness, Do not defraud, Honor 
thy father and mother. 

20 And he 

said unto him, Teacher, all these 
things have I observed from my 
youth. 21 And Jesus looking upon 
him loved him, and said unto him, 
One thing thou lackest : go, sell 
whatsoever thou hast, and give to 
the poor, and thou shalt have 
treasure in heaven : and come, 
follow me. 22 But his countenance 
fell at the saying, and he went 
away sorrowful : for he was one 
that had great possessions. 

23 And Jesus looked round about, 
and saith unto his disciples, How 
hardly shall they that have riches 
enter into the kingdom of God ! 
24 And the disciples were amazed 
at his words. But Jesus answer- 
eth again, and saith unto them, 



XIX: 16-30. 

16 And behold, one came to him 
and said, 

" Teacher, what good thing shall I 
do, that I may have eternal life ? 

17 And he said unto him, *Why 
askest thou me concerning that 
which is good ? One there is who is 
good : but if thou wouldest enter 
into life, keep the commandments. 

18 He saith unto him, Which ? 

And Jesus said, 

*Thou shalt not kill, Thou shalt 
not commit adultery, Thou shalt 
not steal, Thou shalt not bear false 
witness, 19 Honor thy father and 
thy mother; and, *Thou shalt 
love thy neighbor as thyself. 
20 The young man saith unto him, 
All these things have I observed : 
what lack I yet ? 21 Jesus said 
unto him, If thou wouldest be 
perfect, go, sell 

that which thou hast, and give to 
the poor, and thou shall have 
treasure in heaven : and come, 
follow me. 22 But when the young 
man heard the saying, he went 
away sorrowful ; for he was one 
that had great possessions. 

23 And Jesus said unto his disci 
ples, Verily I say unto you, It is 
hard for a rich man to enter into 
the kingdom of heaven, 



XVIII: 18-30; XXII: 28-30. 

18 18 And a certain ruler asked 
him, saying, 

Good Teacher, what shall I 
do to inherit eternal life? 
19 And Jesus said unto him, Why 
callest thou me good? 

none is 

good, save one, even God. 20 Thou 
knowest the commandments, 

*Do 
not commit adultery, Do not kill, 

Do not steal, Do not bear false 
witness, Honor thy father and 
mother. 

21 And he said, All these 
things have I observed from my 
youth up. ^ And when Jesus 
heard it, he said unto him, One 
thing thou lackest yet : sell all 
that thou hast, and distribute unto 
the poor, and thou shalt have 
treasure in heaven : and come, 
follow me. ^ But when he heard 
these things, he became exceeding 
sorrowful ; for he was very rich. 

24 And Jesus seeing him said, 

How 

hardly shall they that have riches 
enter into the kingdom of God ! 



96 



Mark. 



Children, how hard is it * for them 
that trust in riches to enter into 
the kingdom of God! ^It is 
easier for a camel to go through a 
needle s eye, than for a rich man 
to enter into the kingdom of God. 
^And they were astonished ex 
ceedingly, saying *unto him, 

Then who can be saved ? 
27 Jesus look 
ing upon them saith, With men it 
is impossible, but not with God : 
for all things are possible with 
God. s 8 Peter began to say unto 
him, Lo, we have left all, and have 
followed thee. 



29 Jesus said, Ver 
ily I say unto you, There is no 
man that hath left house, or breth 
ren, or sisters, or mother, or father, 
or children, or lands, for my sake, 
and for the "gospel s sake, ^but he 
shall receive a hundredfold now in 
this time, houses, and brethren, 
and sisters, and mothers, and chil 
dren, and lands, with persecutions ; 
and in the * world to come eternal 
life. 31 Hut many that are first 
shall be last ; and the last first. 



Matthew. 



24 And again I say unto you, It is 
easier for a camel to go through a 
needle s eye, than for a rich man 
to enter into the kingdom of God. 

25 And when the disciples heard it, 
they were astonished exceedingly, 
saying, Who then can be saved? 

26 And Jesus looking upon them 
said to them, With men this is 
impossible ; but with God all 
things are possible. n Then an 
swered Peter and said unto him, 
Lo, we have left all, and followed 
thee ; what then shall we have ? 
28 And Jesus said unto them, Ver 
ily I say unto you, that ye who 
have followed me, in the regenera 
tion when the Son of man shall 
sit on the throne of his glory, 
ye also shall sit upon twelve 
thrones, judging the twelve tribes 
of Israel. 



every one that hath left 
houses, or brethren, or sisters, or 
father, or mother, "or children, 
or lands, for my name s sake, 

shall receive *a hundredfold, and 



shall inherit eternal life. 3 But 
many shall be last that are first ; 
and first that are last. 



Luke. 



25 For it is easier 

for a camel to enter in through a 
needle s eye, than for a rich man 
to enter into the kingdom of God. 
26 And 
they that heard it said, 

Then who can be saved? 

27 But he said, 

The things which are impossible 
with men are possible with God. 
28 And Peter said, Lo, we have 
left *our own, and followed thee. 

22 28 But ye are they that have 
continued with me in my tempta 
tions ; %* and * I appoint unto you 
a kingdom, even as my Father 
appointed unto me, ^ that ye may 
eat and drink at my table in my 
kingdom ; and ye shall sit on 
thrones judging the twelve tribes 
of Israel. 

18 29 And he said unto them, 
Verily I say unto you, There is no 
man that hath left house, or wife, 
or brethren, or parents, or children, 
for the kingdom of God s sake, 
30 who shall not receive mani 
fold more in this time, 



and in the 
* world to come eternal life. 



The Parable of the Unjust 
Steward.

1 And he said also unto the dis 
ciples, There was a certain rich 
man, who had a steward ; and 
the same was accused unto him 
that he was wasting his goods. 
2 And he called him, and said unto 
him, What is this that I hear of 
thee? render the account of thy 
stewardship ; for thou canst be no 
longer steward. 8 And the stew 
ard said within himself, What shall I 
do, seeing that my lord taketh away 
the stewardship from me ? I have 
not strength to dig ; to beg I am 
ashamed. 4 1 am resolved what 
to do, that, when I am put out of 
the stewardship, they may receive 
me into their houses. 5 And call

much owest thou unto my lord? 
6 And he said, A hundred * meas 
ures of oil. And he said unto 
him, Take thy "bond, and sit down 
quickly and write fifty. ?Then 
said he to another, And how much 
owest thou ? And he said, A hun 
dred measures of wheat. He 
saith unto him, Take thy bond, and 
write fourscore. 8 And his lord 
commended * the unrighteous stew 
ard because he had done wisely : 
for the sons of this * world are for 
their own generation wiser than the 
sons of the light. 9 And I say 
unto you, Make to yourselves 
iriends *by means of the mam 
mon of unrighteousness ; that, 
when it shall fail, they may receive 
you into the eternal tabernacles. 
10 He that is faithful in a very little 
is faithful also in much : and he 
that is unrighteous in a very little 
is unrighteous also in much. " If 
therefore ye have not been faithful 
in the unrighteous mammon, who 
will commit to your trust the true 
riches f And if ye have not 
been faithful in that which is an 
other s, who will give you that 
which is * your own ? 

Condemnation of Jewish 
Presumption. 

XVI: 14, IS. 

"And the Pharisees, who were 
lovers of money, heard all these 
things; and they scoffed at him. 
15 And he said unto them, Ye are 
they that justify yourselves in the 
sight of men; but God knoweth 
your hearts : for that which is 
exalted among men is an abomina 
tion in the sight of God.

is right I will give you. And they 
went their way. 6 Again he went

about the eleventh hour he went

into Abraham s bosom: and the 
rich man also died, and was buried. 
23 And in Hades he lifted up his 
eyes, being in torments, and seeth 
Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in 
his bosom. 24 And he cried and 
said, Father Abraham, have mercy 
on me, and send Lazarus, that he 
may dip the tip of his finger in 
water, and cool my tongue ; for I 
am in anguish in this flame. K But 
Abraham said, *Son, remember 
that thou in thy lifetime receivedst 
thy good things, and Lazarus in 
like manner evil things : but now 
he is comforted, and thou art in 
anguish. 26 And * besides all this, 
between us and you there is a 
great gulf fixed, that they that 
would pass from hence to you 
may not be able, and that none 
may cross over from thence to us. 

27 And he said, I pray thee there 
fore, father, that thou wouldest 
send him to my father s house; 

28 for I five have brethren ; that he 
may testify unto them, lest they 
also come into this place of tor 
ment. w But Abraham saith, 
They have Moses and the proph 
ets ; let them hear them. 3 And 
he said, Nay, father Abraham :

said unto him, If they hear not

will they be persuaded, if one rise

them, Go ye also into the vine

the lord of the vineyard saith unto 
his steward, Call the laborers, and 
pay them their hire, beginning 
from the last unto the first. 9 And 
when they came that -were hired 
about the eleventh hour, they 
received every man a shilling. 
10 And when the first came, they 
supposed that they would receive 
more ; and they likewise received 
every man a shilling. n And 
when they received it, they mur 
mured against the householder, 
12 saying, These last have spent 
but one hour, and thou hast made 
them equal unto us, who have 
borne the burden of the day and 
the "scorching heat. 13 But he 
answered and said to one of them, 
Friend, I do thee no wrong: 
didst not thou agree with me for 
a shilling? "Take up that 
which is thine, and go thy way ; 
it is my will to give unto this last, 
even as unto thee. 15 Is it not 
lawful for me to do what I will 
with mine own? or is thine eye 
evil, because I am good? 16 So 
the last shall be first, and the first 
last. 



Another Prophecy of His Own Martyrdom. 



Luke.

X : 32-34. 



32 And they were on the way, 
going up to Jerusalem ; and Jesus 
was going before them : and they 
were amazed ; and they that fol 
lowed were afraid. And he took 
again the twelve, and began to 
tell them the things that were to 
happen unto him, & saying, Be 
hold, we go up to Jerusalem ; and 
the Son of man shall be delivered 
unto the chief priests and the 
scribes ; and they shall condemn 
him to death, and shall deliver 
him unto the Gentiles : M and they 
shall mock him, and shall spit 
upon him, and shall scourge him, 
and shall kill him ; and after three 
days he shall rise again. 



XX: 17-19. 

17 And as Jesus was going up 
to Jerusalem, 



he took the twelve 
disciples apart, and on the way 
he said unto them, 18 Be 
hold we go up to Jerusalem ; and 
the Son of man shall be "delivered 
unto the chief priests and 
scribes ; and they shall condemn 
him to death, 19 and shall deliver 
him unto the Gentiles 
to mock, and 
to scourge ; 

and to crucify : and the third 
day he shall be raised up. 



XVIII : 31-34. 



31 And he took unto him the 
twelve, and said unto them, 

Be 
hold, we go up to Jerusalem, and 
all the things that are written 
through the prophets shall be ac 
complished unto the Son of Man. 
32 For he shall be * delivered up 
unto the Gentiles, and shall be 
mocked, and shamefully treated, 
and spit upon: ^and they shali 
scourge and kill him: and the 
third day he shall rise again. 
34 And they understood none of 
these things; and this saying was 
hid from them, and they perceived 
not the things that were said.

Mark. 



Matthew. 



Luke. 



X: 35-45. 

35 And there come near unto 
him James and John, the sons of 
Zebedee, saying unto him, Teacher, 
we would that thou shouldest do 
for us whatsoever we shall ask of 
thee. 36 And he said unto them, 
What would ye that I should do 
for you ? ZJ And they said unto 
him, Grant unto us that we may 
sit, one on thy right hand, and 
one on thy left hand, in thy glory. 

38 But Jesus said unto them, 
Ye know not what ye ask. 
Are ye able to drink the cup that 
I drink? or to be baptized with the 
baptism that I am baptized with ? 

39 And they said unto him, We are 
able. And Jesus said unto them, 
The cup that I drink ye shall drink ; 
and with the baptism that I am 
baptized withal shall ye be bap 
tized : 40 but to sit on my right 
hand or on my left hand is not 
mine to give ; but it is for them 
for whom it hath been prepared. 

41 And when the ten heard it, they 
began to be moved with indigna 
tion concerning James and John. 

42 And Jesus called them to him, 
and saith unto them, Ye know 
that they who are accounted to 
rule over the Gentiles lord it over 
them ; and their great ones exer 
cise authority over them. 43 But 
it is not so among you : but who 
soever would become great among 
you, shall be your "minister; 
44 and whosoever would be first 
among you, shall be " servant of 
all. * For the Son of man also 
came not to be ministered unto, 
but to minister, and to give his 
life a ransom for many. 



The Sons of Zebedee. 

XX: 20-28. 

20 Then came to him the mother 
of the sons of Zebedee with her 
sons, 

* worshipping him, and ask 
ing a certain thing of him. 21 And 
he said unto her, What wouldest 
thou ? She saith unto him, Com 
mand that these my two sons may 
sit, one on thy right hand, and 
one on thy left hand, in thy king 
dom. 22 But Jesus answered and 
said, Ye know not what ye ask. 
Are ye able to drink the cup that 
I am about to drink? 

They say unto him, We are 
able. 23 He saith unto them, 
My cup indeed ye shall drink : 



but to sit on my right 
hand, and on my left hand, is not 
mine to give ; but it is for them 
for whom it hath been prepared of 
my Father. 24 And when the ten 
heard it, they were moved with 
indignation concerning the two 
brethren. M But Jesus called them 
unto him, and said, Ye know that 

the rulers of the Gentiles lord 
it over them, and their great 
ones exercise authority over them. 
26 Not so shall it be among you : 
but whosoever would become great 
among you shall be your "minis 
ter; 



27 and whosoever would be 
first among you shall be your * serv 
ant : ^ even as the Son of man 
came not to be ministered unto, 
but to minister, and to give his 
life a ransom for many.

the earth ; and * what do I desire,

have a baptism to be baptized 
with ; and how am I straitened till 
it be accomplished ! 



22 24 And there arose also a con 
tention among them, which of 
them was accounted to be * great 
est. K And he said unto them, 



The kings of the Gentiles have 
lordship over them ; and they that 
have authority over them are called 
Benefactors. 2ti But ye shall not 
be so : but he that is the greater 
among you, let him become as the 
younger ; and he that is chief, as 
he that doth serve. 



27 For which 

is greater, he that * sitteth at meat, 
or he that serveth? is not he 
that sitteth at meat ? but I am 
in the midst of you as he that 
serveih.

85 And it came to pass, as he 
drew nigh unto Jericho, a certain

begging : ^and hearing a multitude 
going by, he inquired what this

by the way side. 47 And when he 
heard that it was Jesus the Naza-

Jesus, thou son of David, have 
mercy on me. ^And many re 
buked him, that he should hold 
his peace : but he cried out the 
more a great deal, Thou son of 
David, have mercy on me. 49 And 
Jesus stood still, and said, Call ye 
him. And they call the blind 
man, saying unto him, Be of 
good cheer : rise, he calleth thee. 
40 And he, casting away his gar 
ment, sprang up, and came to 
Jesus. 51 And Jesus answered 
him, and said, What wilt thou 
that I should do unto thee ? And 
the blind man said unto him, 
* Rabboni, that I may receive my 
sight. s2 And Jesus said unto him, 
Go thy way ; thy faith hath : Tnade 
thee whole. 

And straightway he 
received his sight, and followed 
him in the way.

heard that Jesus was passing by, 
cried out, saying, Lord, have mercy

si And 

the multitude rebuked them, that 
they should hold their peace : but 
they cried out the more, saying, 
Lord, have mercy on us, thou son 
of David. 32 And Jesus stood still, 
and called them, and said, 



What will ye 
that I should do unto you? 
33 They say unto him, Lord, that 
our eyes may be opened. 34 And 
Jesus, being moved with compas 
sion, touched their eyes ;

sight, and followed him.

ye that I am able to do this? 
They say unto him, Yea, Lord.

ing, According to your faith be 
it done unto you. JO And their 
eyes were opened. And Jesus

thou son of David, have mercy on 
me. 59 And they that went before 
rebuked him, that he should hold 
his peace : but he cried out the 
more a great deal, Thou son of 
David, have mercy on me. 40 And 
Jesus stood, and commanded him 
to be brought unto him : and when 
he was come near, he asked him, 



41 What wilt thou 
that I should do unto thee ? And 
he said, Lord, that I may receive my 

sight. 42 And Jesus said unto him, 
Receive thy sight : thy faith hath 
* made thee whole. * ! And imme 
diately he received his sight, and 
followed him, glorifying God : and 
all the people, when they saw it, 
gave praise unto God.

sought to see Jesus who he was ; 
and could not for the crowd, be 
cause he was little of stature. 
4 And he ran on before, and 
climbed up into a sycamore tree 
to see him : for he was to pass 
that way. 5 And when Jesus 
came to the place, he looked up, 
and said unto him, Zacchseus,

to-day I must abide at thy house. 

6 And he made haste, and came 
down, and received him joyfully. 

7 And when they saw it, they all 
murmured, saying, He is gone in 
to lodge with a man that is a sin 
ner. 8 And Zacchseus stood, and 
said unto the Lord, Behold, Lord, 
the half of my goods I give to 
the poor ; and if I have wrongfully 
exacted aught of any man, I re 
store fourfold. 9 And Jesus said 
unto him, To-day is salvation come 
to this house, forasmuch as he also 
is a son of Abraham. 10 For the 
Son of man came to seek and to 
save that which was lost.

when they draw nigh 
unto Jerusalem, unto Bethphage 
and Bethany, at the mount of 
Olives, he sendeth two of his disci 
ples, 2 and saith unto them, Go your 
way into the village that is over 
against you : and straightway as 
ye enter into it, ye shall find a 
colt tied, whereon no man ever 
yet sat ; loose him and bring him. 
3 And if any one say unto you, 
Why do ye this? say ye, The 
i Lord hath need of him ; and 
straightway he * will send him 
"back hither. 



4 And they went 
away, and found a colt tied at the 
door without in the open street ; 
and they loose him. 6 And certain 
of them that stood there said unto 
them, What do ye, loosing the 
colt? 6 And they said unto them 
even as Jesus had said : and they 
let them go. ~> And they bring 
the colt unto Jesus, and cast on 
him their garments; and he sat 
upon him. 8 And many spread 
their garments upon the way ; and 



*And when they drew nigh

ples, 2 saying unto them, Go into 
the village that is over against 
you, and straightway ye shall find 
an ass tied, and a colt with her : 
loose them, and bring them unto 
me. 

3 And if any one say aught 
unto you, ye shall say, The Lord 
hath need of them ; and straight 
way he will send them. 4 Now 
this is come to pass, that it might 
be fulfilled which was spoken 
through the prophet, saying, 
5 *Tell ye the daughter of Zion, 

Behold, thy King cometh unto 
thee, 

Meek, and riding upon an ass, 

And upon a colt the foal of an ass. 

6 And the disciples went, and 
did even as Jesus appointed them, 



7 and brought the ass, and the 
colt, and put on them their gar 
ments ; and he sat thereon. 8 And 
the most part of the multitude 
spread their garments in the way ;

28 And when he had thus spoken, 
he went on before, going up to 
Jerusalem. * And it came to pass,

of the disciples, 3 saying, Go your

him.

ye say, The Lord hath need of him.

away, and found even as he 
had said unto them. ^And as 
they were loosing the colt, the 
owners thereof said unto tliem, 
Why loose ye the colt ? M And they 
said, The Lord hath need of him.

afar off having leaves, he came 
if haply he might find anything 
thereon : and when he came to it

sold and them that bought in the 
temple, and overthrew the tables 
of the money-changers, and the 
seats of them that sold the doves ; 
16 and he would not suffer that any 
man should carry a vessel through 
the temple. 1T And he taught,

ten, * My house shall be called a 
house of prayer for all the na 
tions? *but ye have made it a 
den for robbers.

they might destroy him : for they 
feared him, for all the multitude 
was astonished at his teaching. 



19 And * every evening *he went 
forth out of the city. 



14 And the blind and the lame 
came to him in the temple ; and 
he healed them. 15 But when the 
chief priests and the scribes saw 
the wonderful things that he did, 
and the children that were crying 
in the temple and saying, Ho- 
sanna to the son of David ; they 
were moved with indignation, 
16 and said to unto him, Hearest 
thou what these are saying ? And 
Jesus saith unto them, Yea : did 
ye never read, * Out of the mouth 
of babes and sucklings thou hast 
perfected praise ? 17 And he left 
them, and went 

forth out of the city 
to Bethany, and lodged there. 



47 And he was teaching daily in 
the temple. But the chief priests 
and the scribes and the principal 
men of the people sought to de 
stroy him :

Utterance Concerning the Withered Fig Tree.

it, they marvelled, saying, How 
did the fig tree immediately wither

Jesus answering saith unto them, 
Have faith in God. w Verily I say 
unto you, 

Whosoever shall say 
unto this mountain, Be thou taken 
up and cast into the sea ; and shall 
not doubt in his heart, but shall 
believe that what he saith cometh 
to pass ; he shall have it. 24 There 
fore I say unto you, All things 
whatsoever ye pray and ask for, 
believe that ye * receive them, and 
ye shall have them. 25 And when 
soever ye stand praying, forgive, if 
ye have aught against any one ; that 
your Father also who is in heaven 
may forgive you your trespasses. 



Matthew. 

and said unto them, 

Verily I say 

unto you, If ye have faith, and 
doubt not, ye shall not only do 
what is done to the fig tree, but 
even if ye shall say unto this 
mountain, Be thou taken up and 
cast into the sea, it shall be done. 



22 And all things whatsoever ye 
shall ask in prayer, believing, ye 
shall receive.

The Dilemma About John s Baptism. 



XI : 27-33. 



27 And they come again to Jeru 
salem : and as he was walking in 
the temple, there come to him the 
chief priests, and the scribes, and 
the elders; w and they said unto him, 
By what authority doest thou these 
things? orwhogave theethis author 
ity to do these things? 29 And Jesus 
said unto them, I 

will ask of you one * question, and 
answer me, 

and I will tell you by what authority 
I do these things. 3 The baptism 
of John, was it from heaven, or 
from men ? answer me. 31 And they 
reasoned with themselves, 
saying, If we shall say, From 
heaven ; he will say, Why 

then did ye not believe him? 32 *But 
should we say, From men they 
feared the people : *for all verily 

held John to be a prophet. & And 
they answered Jesus and say, \Ve 
know not. And Jesus saith unto 
them, Neither tell I you by what 
authority I do these things. 



XXI: 23-27. 



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 au 
thority ? 24 And Jesus 
answered, and said unto them, I 
also will ask you one * question, 
which if ye tell me, I like 
wise will tell you by what authority 
I do these things. ^The baptism 
of John, whence was it? from 
heaven or from men ? And they 
reasoned with themselves, 
saying, If we shall say, From 
heaven ; he will say unto us, Why 
then did ye not believe him ? 26 But 
if we shall say, From men ; we 
fear the multitude ; for all . 

hold John as a prophet. 27 And 
they answered Jesus, and said, We 
know not. He also said unto 
them, Neither tell I you by what 
authority I do these things. 



XX: 1-8. 



1 And it came to pass, on one of 
the days, as he was teaching the 
people in the temple, and preach 
ing the gospel, there came upon 
him the chief priests and the 
scribes with the elders ; 2 and they 
spake, saying unto him, Tell us : 
By what authority doest thou these 
things? or who is he that gave 
thee this authority? 8 And he 
answered and said unto them, I 
also will ask you a " question ; and 
tell me : 

< The baptism 

of John, was it from heaven, or 
from men ? 6 And they 

reasoned with themselves, 
saying, If we shall say, From 
heaven ; he will say, Why 
did ye not believe him ? 6 But 
if we shall say, From men ; all 
the people will stone us : 
for they are persuaded 
that John was a prophet. 7 And 
they answered, that they knew not 
whence it was. 8 And Jesus said unto 
them, Neither tell I you by what 
authority I do these things.

The Fruits of John s Ministry. 



XXI : 31&, 32. 
Jesus saith unto them, Verily 
I say unto you, that the publicans 
and the harlots go into the king 
dom of God before you. 32 For 
John came unto you in the way oi 
righteousness, and ye believed him 
hot ; but the publicans and the 
harlots believed him : and ye 
when ye saw it, did not even re 
pent yourselves afterward, that ye 
might believe him. 

The Parable of the Two 
Unlike Sons. 

XXI: 28-31a. 

28 But what think ye ? A man 
had two * sons ; and he came to 
the first, and said, * Son, go work 
to-day in the vineyard. ^And he 
answered and said, I will not : but 
afterward he repented himself, 
and went. 3 And he came to the 
second, and said likewise. And 
he answered and said, I go, sir : 
and went not. 31 Which of the 
two did the will of his father? 
They say, The first. 



VII : 29, 30. 

29 And all the people when they 
heard, and the publicans, 

justified 

God, "being baptized with the 
baptism of John. M But the Phar 
isees and the lawyers rejected for 
themselves the counsel of God, 
* being not baptized of him. 



The Prodigal Son. 

XV: 11-32. 

11 And he said, A certain man 
had two sons: 12 and the younger 
of them said to his father, Father, 
give me the portion of * thy sub 
stance that falleth to me. And he 
divided unto them his living. 

13 And not many days after, the 
younger son gathered all together 
and took his journey into a far 
country ; and there he wasted his 
substance with riotous living. 

14 And when he had spent all, 
there arose a mighty famine, in 
that country ; and he began to be 

want. 16 And he went and 
joined himself to one of the citi 
zens of that country ; and he sent 
him into his fields to feed swine. 
16 And he would fain * have filled 
his belly with *the husks that the 
swine did eat : and no man gave 
unto him. 17 But when he came 
to himself he said, How many 
hired servants of my father s have 
Dread enough and to spare, and 
I perish here with hunger ! K I

will arise and go to my father, 
and will say unto him, Father, I 
have sinned against heaven, and 
in thy sight: 19 I am no more 
worthy to be called thy son : make 
me as one of thy hired servants. 
20 And he arose, and came to his 
father. But while he was yet afar 
off, his father saw him, and was 
moved with compassion, and ran, 
and fell on his neck, and * kissed 
him. 21 And the son said unto 
him, Father, I have sinned against 
heaven, and in thy sight : I am 
no more worthy to be called thy 
son.* 22 But the father said to his 
" servants, Bring forth quickly the 
best robe, and put it on him ; and 
put a ring on his hand, and shoes 
on his feet : 23 and bring the fatted 
calf, and kill it, and let us eat, 
and make merry : 24 for this my 
son was dead, and is alive again ; 
he was lost, and is found. And 
they began to be merry. ^ Now 
his elder son was in the field : and 
as he came and drew nigh to the 
house, he heard music and dancing. 
26 And he called to him one of the 
servants, and inquired what these 
things might be. 27 And he said 
unto him, Thy brother is come ; 
and thy father jiath killed the 
fatted calf, because he hath re 
ceived him safe and sound. ^ But 
he was angry, and would not go 
in : and his father came out, and 
entreated him. ^ But he answered 
and said to his father, Lo, these 
many years do I serve thee, and I 
never transgressed a command 
ment of thine ; and yet thou never 
gavest me a kid, that I might 
make merry with my friends : 
30 but when this thy son came, who 
hath devoured thy living with 
harlots, thou killedst for him the 
fatted calf. 81 And he said unto 
him, *Son, thou art ever with 
me, and all that is mine is thine. 
32 But it was meet to make merry 
and be glad : for this thy brother 
was dead, and is alive again; 
and was lost, and is found.

Publican.

themselves that they were right 
eous, and set *all others at nought : 
10 Two men went up into the tem 
ple to pray ; the one a Pharisee, 
and the other a * publican. u The 
Pharisee stood and prayed thus 
with himself, God, I thank thee, 
that I am not as the rest of men, 
extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or 
even as this publican. Vi I fast 
twice in the week ; I give tithes of 
all that I get. But the publi 
can, standing afar off, would not 
lift up so much as his eyes unto 
heaven, but smote his breast, say 
ing, God, * be thou merciful to me 
* a sinner. 14 I say unto you, This 
man went down to his house justi 
fied rather than the other : for 
every one that exalteth himself shall 
be humbled ; but he that hum- 
bleth himself shall be exalted. 



The Parable of the Lord s Vineyard. 



XII : 1-12. 



*And he began to speak unto 
them in parables. A man planted 
a vineyard, and set a hedge about 
it, and digged a pit for the wine 
press, and built a tower, and let 
it out to husbandmen, and went 
into another country. 2 And at 
the season he sent to the husband 
men a * servant, that he might 
receive from the husbandmen of 
the frui,ts of the vineyard. 3 And 
they took him, and beat him, and 
sent him away empty. 4 And 
again he sent unto them another 
servant ; and him they wounded 
in the head, and handled shame 
fully. 6 And he sent another; and 
him they killed : and many others ; 
beating some, and killing some. 

6 He had yet one, a beloved son : 
he sent him last unto them, say 
ing, They will reverence my son. 

7 But those husbandmen 

said among 

themselves, This is the heir ; come, 
let us kill him, and the inherit 
ance shall be ours. 8 And they 
took him, and killed him, and 
cast him forth out of the vineyard. 
9 What therefore will the lord of 
the vineyard do? he will come 
and destroy the husbandmen, and 
will give the vineyard unto others. 



XXI: 33-46. 

33 Hear another parable : There 
was a man that was a householder, 
who planted a vineyard, and set a 
hedge about it, and digged a wine 
press in it, and built a tower, 
and let it out to husbandmen, and 
went into another country. ** And 
when the season of the fruits 
drew near, he sent his servants to 
the husbandmen, to receive * his 
fruits. ^And the husbandmen 
took his servants, and beat one, 
and killed another, and stoned 
another. & Again, he sent other 
servants more than the first : and 
they did unto them in like man 
ner 



37 But afterward he sent unto 
them his son, saying, They will 
reverence my son. 

38 But the husbandmen, when 
they saw the son. said among 
themselves, This is the heir ; come, 
let us kill him, and take his inher 
itance. w And they took him and 
cast him forth out of the vineyard , 
and killed him. ^When there- 
f5re the lord of the vineyard shall 
come, what will he do unto those 
husbandmen ? 41 They say unto 
him, He will miserably destroy 
those miserable men, and will let 



XX : 9-19. 



9 And he began to speak unto 
the people this parable : A man, 
planted a vineyard, 

and let it out 

to husbandmen, and went into an 
other country for a long time. 10 And 
at the season he sent unto the 
husbandmen a "servant, that they 
should give him of the fruit of the 
vineyard : but the husbandmen 
beat him, and sent him away 
empty. n And he sent yet another 
servant : and him also they beat, 
and handled him shamefully, and 
sent him away empty. 12 And he 
sent yet a third : and him also they 
wounded, and cast him forth. 
13 And the lord of the vineyard 
said, What shall I do? I will 
send my beloved son ; it may be 
they will reverence him. 14 But 
when the husbandmen saw him, 
they reasoned one with another, 
saying, This is the heir ; 
let us kill him, that the inher 
itance may be ours. 15 And they 
cast him forth out of the vineyard, 
and killed him. What therefore 
will the lord of the vineyard do 
unto them ? 16 He will come and 
destroy these husbandmen, and

eyes?

out the vineyard unto other hus 
bandmen, who shall render him 
the fruits in their seasons. ^ Jesus 
saith unto them, Did ye never 
read in the scriptures,

to a nation bringing forth the 
fruits thereof. 44 *And he that fall- 
eth on this stone shall be broken 
to pieces : but on whomsoever it 
shall fall, it will scatter him as dust. 
46 And when the chief priests and 
the Pharisees heard his parables, 
they perceived that he spake of 
them. 46 And when they sought 
to lay hold on him, they feared 
the multitudes, because they took 
him for a prophet.

And when they heard it, they 
said, * God forbid. 17 But he 
looked upon them, and said, 
What then is this that is written, 
*The stone which the builders 

rejected, 

The same was made the head 
of the corner ? 



18 Every one that falleth on that 
stone shall be broken to pieces ; 
but on whomsoever it shall fall, it 
will scatter him as dust.

priests sought to lay hands on him 
in that very hour ; and they feared 
the people ; for they perceived that 
he spake this parable against 
them. 

Concerning Humility. 

XIV: 7-14. 

7 And he spake a parable unto 
those that were bidden, when he 
marked how they chose out the 
chief seats; saying unto them, 
8 When thou art bidden of any 
man to a marriage feast, *sit not 
down in the chief seat ; lest haply 
a more honorable man than thou 
be bidden of him, 9 and he that 
bade thee and him shall come and 
say to thee, Give this man place ; 
and then thou shall begin wilh 
shame to take the lowest place. 
10 But when thou art bidden, go 
and sit down in the lowest place ; 
that when he hath bidden thee 
cometh, he may say to thee, Friend, 
go up higher : then shalt thou 
have glory in the presence of all 
that * sit at meat with thee. n For 
every one that exalteth himself 
shall be humbled ; and he that 
humbleth himself shall be exalted. 
12 And he said to him also that had 
bidden him, When thou makest 
a dinner or .a supper, call not thy 
friends, nor thy brethren, nor thy 
kinsmen, nor rich neighbors ; lest 
haply they also bid thee again, 
and a recompense be made thee.

13 But when them makest a feast, 
bid the poor, the maimed, the

be blessed ; because they have not 
wherewith to recompense thee : 
for thou shall be recompensed in 
the resurrection of the just. 



The Parable of the Messianic Feast. 



XXII: 1-14. 



1 And Jesus answered and spake 
again in parables unto them, say 
ing, 2 The kingdom of heaven is 
likened unto a certain king, who 
made a marriage feast for his son, 
3 and sent forth his * servants to 
call them that were bidden to the 
marriage feast : and they would 
not come. 4 Again he sent forth 
other servants, saying, Tell them 
that are bidden, Behold, I have 
made ready my dinner ; my oxen 
and my fallings are killed, and all 
things are ready : come to the 
marriage feast. 6 But they made 
light of it, and went their ways, 
one to his own farm, another to 
his merchandise ; 6 and the rest 
laid hold on his servants, and 
treated them shamefully, and 
killed them. 7 But the king was 
wroth ; and he sent his armies, 
and destroyed those murderers, 
and burned their city. 8 Then 
saith he to his servants, The 
wedding is ready, but they that 
were bidden were not worthy. 
9 Go ye therefore unto the part 
ings of the highways, and as many 
as ye shall find, bid to the mar 
riage feast. 

10 And those servants 



went out into the highways, and 
gathered together all as many as 
they found, both bad and good : 
and the wedding was filled with 
guests. 



11 But when the king came 
in to behold the guests, he saw 
there a man who had not on a 



XIV: 15-24. 

16 And when one of them that 
* sat at meat with him heard these 
things, he said unto him, Blessed 
is he that shall eat bread in the 
kingdom of God. 16 But he said 
unto him, 

A certain man made a 
great supper ; and he bade many : 
17 and he sent forth his * servant at 
supper time to say to them that 
were bidden, Come ; for all things 
are now ready. 18 And they all 
with one consent began to make 
excuse. The first said unto him, 
I have bought a field, and I must 
needs go out and see it ; I pray 
thee have me excused. 19 And 
another said, I have bought five 
yoke of oxen, and I go to prove 
them ; I pray thee have me ex 
cused. 20 And another said, I 
have married a wife, and there 
fore I cannot come. 21 And the 
servant came, and told his lord 
these things. 



Then the master of 
the house being angry said to his 
servant, Go out quickly into the 
streets and lanes of the city, and 
bring in hither the poor and 
maimed and blind and lame. 
22 And the servant said, Lord, 
what thou didst command is done, 
and yet there is room. 23 And 
the lord said unto the servant, 
Go out into the highways and 
hedges, and constrain them to 
come in, that my house may be 
filled. 24 For I say unto you, that 
none of those men that were bid- 
den shall taste of my supper. 



112 



Mark. 



XII: 13-17. 

13 And they send unto him cer 
tain of the Pharisees and of the 
Herodians, that they might catch 
him in talk. "And when they 
were come, they say unto him, 



Teacher, we know that thou art 
true, and carest not for any one ; 
for thou regardest not the person 
of men, but of a truth teachest 
the way of God : 

Is it 

lawful to give tribute unto 

Caesar, or not ? 

15 Shall we give, or shall we not 
give ? But he, knowing 

their hypocrisy, 

said unto them, Why 
make ye trial of me ? bring me a 
* denarius, that I may see it. 16 And 
they brought it. 

And he saith 

unto them, Whose is this image 
and superscription ? And they 
said unto him, Caesar s. 17 And 
Jesus said unto them, Render unto 
Caesar the things that are Caesar s, 
and unto God the things that are 
God s. 



And they marvelled greatly 



at him. 



XII: 18-27. 

18 And there come unto him 
Sadducees, who say that there is 
no resurrection ; and they asked 
him, saying,

wrote unto us, ^If a man s brother 
die, and leave a wife behind him, 
and leave no child, that his brother

wedding-garment: 12 and he saith 
unto him, Friend, how earnest thou 
in hither not having a wedding- 
garment ? And he was speechless. 

13 Then the king said to the*serv- 
ants, Bind him hand and foot, 
and cast him out into the outer 
darkness ; there shall be the weep 
ing and the gnashing of teeth. 

14 For many are called, but few 
chosen. 

The Pharisees Question. 

XXII: 15-22. 

15 Then went the Pharisees, and 
took counsel how they might en 
snare him in his talk. 16 And 
they send to him their disci 
ples, with the Herodians, saying, 



Teacher, we know that thou art 
true, and teachest the way of God 
in truth, and carest not for any 
one : for thou regardest not the 
person of men. 17 Tell us there 
fore, What thinkest thou? Is it 
lawful to give tribute unto 

Caesar, or not ? 

18 But Jesus perceived 
their wickedness, 

and said, Why 

make ye trial of me, ye hypocrites? 
19 Show me the tribute money. 
And they brought unto him a 
* denarius. 2 And he saith unto 
them, Whose is this image and 
superscription? 2I They say unto 
him, Caesar s. Then he saith 
unto them, Render therefore unto 
Caesar the things that are Caesar s ; 
and unto God the things that are 
God s. 22 And when they heard 
it, 

they marvelled, and left him, 
and went away. 

The Sadducees Question. 

XXII : 23-33. 

23 On that day there came to him 
Sadducees, * they that say that 
there is no resurrection : and they 
asked him, 24 saying, 

Teacher, Moses 
said, * If a man die, having no 

children, his brother * shall marry 



Luke. 



XX: 20-26. 

20 And they watched him, and 
sent forth spies, who feigned them 
selves to be righteous, that they 
might take hold of his speech, so 
as to deliver him up to the *rule 
and to the authority of the gover 
nor. 21 And they asked him, saying, 
Teacher, we know that thou sayest 
and teachest rightly, and acceptest 
not the person of any, but of a truth 
teachest the way of God. 

22 Is it 

lawful for us to give tribute unto 
Caesar, or not ? 

23 But he perceived 
their craftiness, 

and said unto them, 

24 Show me a 

* denarius. 

Whose image and 
superscription hath it? And they 
said, Caesar s. 2S And he said 
unto them, Then render unto 
Caesar the things that are Caesar s, 
and unto God the things that are 
God s. 26 And they were not 
able to take hold of the saying 
before the people : and they 
marvelled at his answer, and held 
their peace. 






XX: 27-38. 

27 And there came to him cer 
tain of the Sadducees, they that 
say that there is no resurrection ; 
28 and they asked him, saying, 
Teacher, * Moses wrote unto us, 
that if a man s brother die, having 
a wife, and he be childless, his 
brother should take the wife, and 



Mark. 

should take his wife, and raise up 
seed unto his brother. 

20 There 

were seven brethren : and the first 
took a wife, and dying left no 
seed; 

21 and the second took her, 
and died, leaving no seed behind 
him ; and the third likewise : 
22 and the seven left no seed. 

Last 

of all the woman also died. 23 In 
the resurrection whose wife shall 
she be of them? for the seven 
had her to wife. 24 Jesus said unto 
them, Is it not for this cause that 
ye err, that ye know not the scrip 
tures, nor the power of God? 



25 For when they shall rise from 
the dead, they neither marry, nor 
are given in marriage ; but are as 
angels in heaven. 

26 But as touching the dead, that 
they are raised ; have ye not read 
in the book of Moses, in the place 
concerning the Bush, how God 
spake unto him, saying, *I am the 
God of Abraham, and the God of 
Isaac, and the God of Jacob ? 



27 Ke is not the God of the dead, 
but of the living : ye do greatly 



Matthew. 

his wife, and raise up seed unto 
his brother. 

25 Now there 

were with us seven brethren: and 
the first married and deceased, and 
having no seed left his wife unto 
his brother; 26 in like manner the 
second also, 

and the third, unto the 
* seventh. 

27 And after them all, 
the woman died. 2(i In the resur 
rection therefore whose wife shall 
she be of the seven ? for they all 
had her. ^ But Jesus answered 
and said unto them, Ye do err, not 
knowing the scriptures, nor the 
power of God. 

30 For in the resur 
rection they neither marry, nor are 
given in marriage, but are as an 
gels *in heaven. 

31 But as touching 
the resurrection of the dead, have 
ye not read that which was spoken 
unto you by God, 

saying, 82 * 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 living. 

33 And when the 

multitudes heard it, they were as 
tonished at his teaching. 



The Greatest Commandment. 



Luke. 



113 



raise up seed unto his brother. 
2a There were therefore seven 
brethren : and the first took a 
wife, and died childless ; 



80 and 
the second : 

31 and the third took 
her ; and likewise the seven also 
left no children, and died. ^After 
ward the woman also died. & In 
the resurrection therefore whose 
wife of them shall she be ? for 
the seven had her to wife. M And 
Jesus said unto them, The sons of 
this * world marry, and are given 
in marriage : & but they that are 
accounted worthy to attain to that 
"world, and the resurrection from 
the dead, neither marry, nor are 
given in marriage: ^for neither 
can they die any more : for they 
are equal unto the angels ; and are 
sons of God, being sons of the 
resurrection. 37 But that the dead 
are raised, even Moses showed, in 
v the place concerning the Bush, 
when he calleth the Lord the God 
of Abraham, and the God of 
Isaac, and the God of Jacob. 



38 Now he is not the God of the 
dead, but of the living : for all 
live unto him. 



XII: 28-34. 

28 And one of the scribes came, 
and heard them questioning to 
gether, and knowing that he had 
answered them well, asked him, 



What commandment is the first of 
all ? 29 Jesus answered, The first 
is, * Hear, O Israel ; * The Lord 
our God, the Lord is one : ^ and 
thou shall love the Lord thy God 
* with all thy heart, and * with all 
thy soul, and "with all thy mind, 
and * with all thy strength. 

31 The 

second is this, *Thou shall love 
thy neighbor as thyself. There is 
none other commandment greater 
than these.

XXII: 34-40. 

34 Bui Ihe Pharisees, when ihey 
heard lhat he had put the Sad- 
ducees to silence, gathered them 
selves together. 3* And one of 
them, a lawyer, asked him a ques 
tion, trying him : S6 Teacher, which 
is the great commandment in the 
law? s7 And he said unto him, 



* Thou shall love the Lord thy God 
with all thy heart, and with all 
thy soul and with all thy mind. 
38 This is Ihe greal and firsl com- 
mandmenl. ^"Anda second like 
unto it is this, *Thou shall love thy 
neighbor as thyself. *On these two 
commandmenls Ihe whole law 
hangeth, and the prophets. 



XX: 39, 40; X: 25-28. 



20 39 And certain of the scribes 
answering said, Teacher, Thou 
hast well said. 

10 "And behold, a certain 
lawyer stood up and made Irial 01 
him, saying, Teacher, whal shall 
I do lo inherit eternal life ? 26 And 
he said unto him, What is written 
in the law? how readesl ihou? 
27 And he answering said, 
*Thou shall love the Lord thy God 
*with all thy hearl, and wilh all 
thy soul, and with all thy strength, 
and with all thy mind; 

*and thy neighbor as thyself. 
^And he said unlo him, Thou 
hasl answered right: this do, and 
thou shall live.

Mark. 



Matthew.

32 And the scribe said 
unto him, Of a truth, Teacher, 
thou hast well said that he is one; 
and there is none other but he : 
83 and to love him with all the 
heart, and with all the understand 
ing, and with all the strength, 
and to love his neighbor as him 
self, is much more than all whole 
burnt-offerings and sacrifices. 
34 And when Jesus saw that he 
answered discreetly, he said unto 
him, Thou art not far from the 
kingdom of God. And no man 
after that durst ask him any ques 
tion. 



20 40 For they durst 
not any more ask him any ques 
tion. 

The Good Samaritan. 

X: 29-37. 

29 But he, desiring to justify him 
self, said unto Jesus, And who is 
my neighbor? 30 Jesus made an 
swer and said, A certain man was 
going down from Jerusalem to Jer 
icho; and he fell among robbers, 
who both stripped him and beat 
him, and departed, leaving him 
halt dead. 31 And by chance a 
certain priest was going down that 
way: and when he saw him, he 
passed by on the other side. 32 And 
in liice manner a Levite also, when 
he came to the place, and saw him, 
passed by on the other side. ^But 
a certain Samaritan, as he jour 
neyed, came where he was: and 
when he saw him he was moved with 
compassion, i4 and came to him, and 
bound up his wounds, pouring on 
them oil and wine; and he set him 
on his own beast, and brought him 
to an inn, and took care of him. 
34 And on the morrow he took out 
two * shillings, and gave them to 
the host, and said, Take care of 
him; and whatsoever thou spend- 
est more, I, when I come back 
again, will repay thee. x Which 
of these three, thinkest thou, 
proved neighbor unto him that fell 
among the robbers? 37 And he said, 
He that showed mercy on him. 
And Jesus said unto him. Go, and 
do thou likewise.

XII: 35-37. 

36 And Jesus answered and said, 
as he taught in the temple, How 
say the scribes that the Christ is the 
son of David ? 



86 David himself said 
in the Holy Spint, 

* The Lord said unto my Lord, 
Sit thou on my right hand, 
Till I make thine enemies *the 

footstool of thy feet. 
3 7 David himself c a 1 1 e t h him 
Lord; and whence is he his son? 
And * the common people heard 
him gladly. 



The Lordship of Messiah. 

XXII: 41-16. 

41 Now while the Pharisees were 
gathered together, Jesus asked them 
a question, 42 saying, What think 
ye of the Christ ? whose son is he ? 
They say unto him, The son of 
David. 4 s lie saith unto them, 
I low then doth David in the Spirit 
call him I^ord, saying, 

44 * The Lord said unto my Lord, 
Sit thou on my right hand, 
Till I put thine enemies un 
derneath thy feet? 

45 If David then calleth him 
Lord, how is he his son? ^And 
no one was able to answer him a 
word, neither durst any man from 
that day forth ask him any more 
questions. 



XX: 41-44. 
41 And he said unto them, 



How 

say they that the Christ is David s 
son? 

42 For David himself saith in 
the book of Psalms, 

*The Lord said unto my Lord, 
Sit thou on my right hand, 
43 Till I make thine enemies 

the footstool of thy feet. 
44 David therefore calleth him 
Lord, and how is he his son ? 



Beginning of the Speech Against Pharisaism. 



XII : 38, 39. 



88 And in his teachings he said, 



Beware of the scribes who de 
sire to walk in long robes, and to 
have salutations in the market 
places, 39 and chief seats in the syna 
gogues, and chief places at feasts : 



XXIII: 1-12. 



1 Then spake Jesus to the multi 
tudes and to his disciples, 2 saying, 
The scribes and the Pharisees sit 
on Moses seat : 3 all things there 
fore whatsoever they bid you, 
these do and observe : but do not 
ye after their works ; for they say, 
and do not. 

4 Yea, they bind heavy 
burdens *and grievous to borne, 
and lay them on men s shoulders ; 
but they themselves will not move 
them with their finger. 6 But all 
their works they do to be seen of 
men : for they make broad their 
phylacteries, and enlarge the bor 
ders of their garments, 



6 and love 
the chief place at feasts, and the 



chiet seats in the synagogues, 7 and 
the salutations in the market-places, 



XI : 37-39a, 43, 46 ; XX : 45, 46. 

11 ^ Now as he spake, a Phari 
see asketh him to *dine with him : 
and he went in , and sat down to 
meat. & And when the Pharisee 
saw it, he marvelled that he had 
not first bathed himself before "din 
ner. ^And the Lord said unto 
him, 

20 w And in the hearing of all 
the people he said unto his disci 
ples, 



11 ^And he said, Woe unto 
you lawyers also ! for ye load men 
with burdens grievous to be borne, 
and ye yourselves touch not the 

burdens with one of your fingers. 



20 46 Beware of the scribes, who 
desire to walk in long robes, and 
love salutations in the market 
places, and chief seats in the syna 
gogues, and chief places at feasts; 
11 ^Woe unto you Pharisees! 
for ye love the chief seats in the 
synagogues, and the salutations in 
the market-places.

Matthew.

8 But be not ye called Rabbi : for 
one is your teacher, and all ye are 
brethren. 9 And call no man your 
father on the earth : for one is 
your Father, * even he who is in 
heaven. 10 Neither be ye called 
masters : for one is your master, 
even the Christ. J1 But he that is 
"greatest among you shall be your 
"servant. 12 And whosoever shall 
exalt himself shall be humbled; 
and whosoever shall humble him 
self shall be exalted. 

The Seven Woes. 

XXIII: 13-31. 

13 But woe unto you, scribes and 
Pharisees, hypocrites ! because ye 
shut the kingdom of heaven 
* against men : for ye enter not in 
yourselves, neither suffer ye them 
that are entering in to enter.* 



Luke. 



16 Woe unto you, scribes . and 
Pharisees, hypocrites ! for ye com 
pass sea and land to make one 
proselyte ; and when he is become 
so, ye make him two fold more a 
son of * hell than yourselves. 

16 Woe unto you, ye blind guides, 
that say, Whosoever shall swear 
by the "temple, it is nothing ; but 
whosoever shall swear by the gold 
of the temple, he is *a debtor. 

17 Ye fools and blind : for which 
is the greater, the gold or the tem 
ple that hath sanctified the gold ? 

18 And, whosover shall swear by 
the altar, it is nothing ; but who 
soever shall swear by the gift that 
is upon it, he is a debtor. 19 Ye 
blind : for which is greater, the 
gift, or the altar that sanctifieth the 
gift ? * He therefore that swear- 
eth by the altar, sweareth by it, 
and by all things thereon. 21 And 
he that sweareth by the temple, 
sweareth by it, and by him that 
dwelleth therein. 22 And he that 
sweareth by the heaven, sweareth 
by the throne of God, and by him 
that sitteth thereon. 



XI : 39b-42; 44,45,47,48,52; 

XX:47. 

11 52 Woe unto you lawyers! 
for ye took away the key of 
knowledge : 

ye entered not in 
yourselves, and them that were 
entering in ye hindered. 

20 47 Who devour widows 
houses, and for a pretence make 
long prayers: these shall receive 
greater condemnation. 



Mark. 



Matthew. 

23 Woe unto you, scribes and 
Pharisees, hypocrites ! for ye tithe 
mint and *anise and cummin, and 
have left undone the weightier 
matters of the law, justice, and 
mercy, and faith : but these ye 
ought to have done, and not to 
have left the other undone. 24 Ye 
blind guides, that strain out the 
gnat, and swallow the camel ! 

25 Woe unto you, scribes and 
Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye cleanse 
the outside of the cup and of the 
platter, but within they are full 
from extortion and excess. 26 Thou 
blind Pharisee, cleanse first the in 
side of the cup and of the platter, 
that the outside thereof may be 
come clean also. 



27 Woe unto you, scribes and 
Pharisees, hypocrites ! for ye are 
like unto whited sepulchres, which 
outwardly appear beautiful, but 
inwardly are full of dead men s 
bones, and of all uncleanness. 
28 Even so ye also outwardly ap- 
peai righteous unto men, but in 
wardly ye are full of hypocrisy and 
iniquity. 

29 Woe unto you, scribes and 
Pharisees, hypocrites ! for ye build 
the sepulchres of the prophets, and 
garnish the tombs of the righteous, 
30 and say, If we had been in the 
days of our fathers, we should not 
have been partakers with them in 
the blood of the prophets. 31 Where 
fore ye witness to yourselves, that 
ye are sons of them that slew the 
prophets. 



Luke. 



117 



11 ^ But woe unto you Phari 
sees! for ye tithe mint and rue and 
every herb, and pass over justice 
and the love of God : 

but these ought ye 
to have done, and not to leave 
the other undone. 



39 Now ye the 

Pharisees cleanse the outside of the 
cup and of the platter; but your 
inward part is full of extortion 
and wickedness. 40 Ye foolish ones, 
did not he that made the outside 
make the inside also ? 41 But give 
for alms those things which "are 
within ; and behold all things are 
clean unto you. 

44 Woe unto you ! 
for ye are as the tombs which ap 
pear not, and the men that walk 
over them know it not. 



47 Woe unto 

you ! for ye build the tombs of the 
prophets, and your fathers killed 
them. ^So ye are witnesses and 
consent unto the works of your 
fathers : for they killed them, and 
ye build their tombs. 



45 And one of the lawyers an 
swering saith unto him, Teacher, 
in saying this thou reproachest us- 
also. 



Epilogue. 



XXIII: 32-36. 

32 Fill ye up then the measure of 
your fathers. 3 s Ye serpents, ye 
offspring of vipers, how shall ye 
escape the judgment of * hell ? 
34 Therefore, behold, I send unto 
you prophets, and wise men, and 
scribes : some of them shall ye kill 
and crucify ; and some of them 
shall ye scourge in your syna-

the treasury, and beheld how the 
multitude cast *money into the 
treasury : and many that were rich 
cast in much. ^ And there came 
*a poor widow, and she cast in 
two mites, which make a farthing. 
43 And he called unto him his dis 
ciples, and said unto them, Verily 
I say unto you, This poor widow 
cast in more than all they that are

O, Jerusalem, Jerusalem!" 



XXIII : 37-39. 

37 O, Jerusalem, Jerusalem, that 
killeth the prophets, and stoneth 
them that are sent unto her ! how 
often would I have gathered thy 
children together, even as a hen 
gathereth her chickens under her 
wings, and ye would not ! 38 Be 
hold, your house is left unto you 
"desolate. 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 Lord. 

The Widow s Mite.

34 O, Jerusalem, Jerusalem, that 
killeth the prophets, and stoneth 
them that are sent unto her ! how 
often would I have gathered thy 
children together, even as a hen 
gathereth her own brood under her 
wings, and ye would not ! M Be 
hold, your house is left unto you 
desolate : and I say unto you, 
Ye shall not see me, 
until ye shall say, Blessed jjhe that 
cometh in the name of the Lord.

1 And he looked up, 
* and saw the rich men that were 
casting their gifts into the treas 
ury. 

2 And he saw a certain 
poor widow casting in thither two 
mites. 

8 And he said, Of a truth I 
say unto you, This poor widow 
cast in more than they all : 

4 for 

all these did of their super 
fluity cast in unto the gifts ; but she 
of her want did cast in all the 
living that she had. 



Prophecy of the Destruction of the Temple. 



XIII: 1-4. 



1 And as he went forth out of the 
temple, one of his disciples saith 
unto him, Teacher, behold, what 
manner of stones and what man 
ner of buildings ! 2 And Jesus 
said unto him, Seest thou these 
great buildings ? 

there shall not be left here 
one stone upon another, which shall 
not be thrown down. 

3 And as he sat on the mount of 



XXIV : 1-3. 

*And Jesus went out from the 
temple, and was going on his way; 
and his disciples came to him to 
show him the buildings of the 
temple. 2 But he answered and 
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. 

3 And as he sat on the mount of 



XXI: 5-7. 

6 And as some spake of the tem 
ple, how it was adorned with 
goodly stones and offerings, he 
said,

ye behold, the days will come, in 
which there shall not be left here 
one stone upon another, that shall 
not be thrown down.

The Synoptic Apocalypse. 

XXIV : 4-36. 
First Act: 



5 And Jesus began to say unto 
them, Take heed that no man 
lead you astray. 6 Many shall 
come in my name, saying, I am 
he ; and shall lead many astray. 

7 And when ye shall hear of 
wars and rumors of wars, be not 
troubled : these things must needs 
come to pass ; but the end is not 
yet. 

8 For nation shall rise against 
nation, and kingdom against king 
dom ; there shall be earthquakes 
in divers places ; there shall be 
famines : 



these things are the 
beginning of travail. 



(a) The Apocalyptic Half. 
XXIV: 4-8. 

4 And Jesus answered and said 
unto them, Take heed that no man 
lead you astray. 6 For many shall 
come in my name, saying, I am the 
Christ ; and shall lead many astray. 

6 And ye shall hear of 
wars and rumors of wars ; see that 
ye be not troubled : for these things 
must needs come to pass ; but the 
end is not yet 

7 For nation shall rise against 
nation, and kingdom against king 
dom ; and there shall be famines 
and earthquakes in divers places. 



8 But all these things are the 
beginning of travail. 



XXI: 8-33. 



XXI: 8-11. 



8 And he said, 

Take heed that ye 
be not led astray : for many shall 
come in my name, saying, I am 
he; and, The time is at hand : go 
ye not after them. 

" And when ye shall hear of 
wars and tumults, be not terrified : 
for these things must needs come 
to pass first ; but the end is not 
immediately. 

10 Then said he unto them., 
Nation shall rise against 
nation, and kingdom against king 
dom ; ll and there shall be great 
earthquakes, and in divers places 
famines and pestilences ; and there 
shall be terrors and great signs 
from heaven. 



(b) Exhortation for the Beginning of the Distress. 

XIII : 9-13. XXIV : 9-14. XXI : 12-19. 



9 But take ye heed to yourselves ; 
for they shall deliver you up to 
councils; and in synagogues shall 
ye be beaten ; and before govern 
ors and kings shall ye stand for 
my sake, for a testimony unto 
them. 10 And the * gospel must 
first be preached unto all the na 
tions. 11 And when they lead you 
to judgment, and deliver you up, 
be not anxious beforehand what 
ye shall speak ; but whatsoever 
shall be given you in that hour, 
that speak ye ; for it is not ye that 
speak, but the Holy Spirit. 12 And 
brother shall deliver up ^brother 
to death, and the father his child ; 
and children shall rise up against 
parents, and *cause them to be put 
to death. 13 And ye shall be hated 
of all men for my name s sake : 



9 Then shall they deliver you up 
unto tribulation, 



and shall kill you : 
and ye shall be hated of all the 
nations for my name s sake. 



12 But before all these things, 
they shall lay their hands on you, 
and shall persecute you, delivering 
you up to the synagogues and pris 
ons, " bringing you before kings 
and governors for my name s sake. 
13 It shall turn out unto you for a 
testimony. 14 Settle it therefore 
in your hearts, not to meditate be 
forehand how to answer : u for I 
will give you a mouth and wisdom, 
which all your adversaries shall 
not be able to withstand or to 
gainsay. 

16 But ye shall be "delivered 
up even by parents, and brethren, 
and kinsfolk, and friends; and some 
of you <! shall they cause to be put 
to death. 17 And ye shall be hated 
of all men for my name s sake.

but he that endur- 
eth to the end, the same shall be 
saved. 



XIII: 14-20. 

14 But when ye see the abomi 
nation of desolation 

standing where he 
ought not (let him that readeth un 
derstand), then let them that are in 
Judaea flee unto the mountains : 
15 and let him that is on the house 
top not go down nor enter in, to 
take anything out of his house : 
16 and let him that is in the field 
not return back to take his cloak. 

17 But woe unto them that are with 
child and to them that give suck 
in those days ! ls And pray ye that 
it be not in the winter. 

19 For those days 

shall be tribulation, such as there 
hath not been the like from the 
beginning of the creation which 
God created until now, and 
never shall be. w And except the 
Lord had shortened the days, no 
flesh would have been saved; 
but for the elect s sake, whom he 
chose, he shortened the days. 



| 10 And then shall many stumble, 
and shall "deliver up one another, 
and shall hate one another. n And 
many false prophets shall arise, 
and shall lead many astray. 12 And 
because iniquity shall be multi 
plied, the love of the many shall 
wax cold.] 13 But he that endur- 
eth to the end, the same shall be 
saved. 14 And this gospel of the 
kingdom shall be preached in the 
whole "world for a testimony unto 
all the nations ; and then shall the 
end come. 

Second Act: 
(a) The Apocalyptic Half. 

XXIV: 15-22. 

IB When therefore ye see the 
abomination of desolation, which 
was *spoken of through Daniel the 
prophet, standing in * the holy 
place (let him that readeth under 
stand), 16 then let them that are in 
Judaea flee unto the mountains : 

17 let him that is on the house 
top not go down to take out the 
things that are in his house : 

18 and let him that is in the field 
not return back to take his cloak. 

19 But woe unto them that are with 
child and to them that give suck 
in those days! 2 And pray ye that 
your flight be not in the winter, 
neither on a sabbath : 21 for then 
shall be great tribulation, such as 
hath not been from the begin 
ning of the world until now, no, nor 

ever shall be. K And except those 
days had been shortened, no 
flesh would have been saved: 
but for the elect s 
sake those days shall be shortened. 



18 And not a hair of your 
head shall perish. 



19 In your * patience ye shall win 
your * souls. 



XXI : 20-24. 

20 But when ye see Jerusalem 
compassed with armies, then know 
that her desolation is at hand. 



21 Then let them that are in 
Judaea flee unto the mountains ; 
and let them that are in the midst 
of her depart out ; and let not them 
that are in the country enter there 
in. ^ For these are days of venge 
ance, that all things which are 
written may be fulfilled. 

23 Woe unto them that are with 
child and to them that give suck 
in those days ! 

for there shall be 
great distress upon the * land, and 
wrath unto this people. 



And they shall 

fall by the edge of the sword, and 
shall be led captive into all the 
nations : and Jerusalem shall be 
trodden down of the Gentiles, 
until the times of the Gentiles be 
fulfilled.

(b) Exhortation for the Extremity of the Distress. 



XIII : 21-23. 

21 And then if any man shall 
say unto you, Lo, here is the 
Christ ; or, Lo, there ; believe * it 
not : M for there shall arise false 
Christs and false prophets, and 
shall show signs and won 

ders, that they may lead astray, if 
possible, the elect. ffi But take ye 
heed : behold, I have told you 
all things beforehand. 



XXIV : 23-25. 

23 Then if any man shall 
say unto you, Lo, here is the 
Christ, or, Here; believe f if 
not. 24 For there shall arise false 
Christs, and false prophets, and 
shall show great signs and won 
ders ; so as to lead astray, if 
possible, even the elect.

beforehand. 

The Coming of the King 
dom. 

XVII : 20-22. 

20 And being asked by the Phar 
isees, when the kingdom of God 
cometh, he answered them and 
said, The kingdom of God cometh 
not with observation : 21 neither 
shall they say, Lo, here ! or, 
There ! for lo, the kingdom of 
God is * within you. 

22 And he said unto the disciples, 
The days will come, when ye shall 
desire to see one of the days of the 
Son of man, and ye shall notsee it. 

The Day of the Son of Man. 

XXIV : 26-27. XVII : 23-25. 

26 If therefore they shall say unto 
you, Behold, he is in the wilder 
ness ; go not forth : Behold, he is 
in the inner chambers ; believe *it 
not. 27 For as the lightning com 
eth forth from the east, and is seen 
even unto the west ; 

so shall be 
the * coming of the Son of man. 



XIII : 24-27. 

24 But in those days, after that 
tribulation, the sun shall be dark 
ened, and the moon shall not give 
her light, M and the stars shall be 
falling from heaven, 



Third Act :

29 But immediately after the 
tribulation of_ those days the sun 
shall be darkened, and the moon 
shall not give her light, and the stars 
shall fall from heaven,

Lo, there ! Lo, here ! go not away, 
nor follow after them : 

24 for as the lightning, when it 
lighteneth out of the one part under 
the heaven, shineth unto the 
other part under heaven ; so shall 
the Son of man be * in his day. 
25 But first must he suffer many 
things and be rejected of this 
generation. 



XXI : 25-28. 



25 And there shall be signs in 
sun and moon and stars ;

28 Now from the fig tree learn 
her parable : when her branch is

The Parable of the Godless 
Judge. 

XVIII: 1-8. 

*And he spake a parable unto 
them to the end that they ought 
always to pray, and not to faint ; 
2 saying, There was in a city a judge, 
who feared not God, and regarded 
not man : 3 and there was a 
widow in that city; and she came 
oft unto him, saying, * Avenge me 
of mine adversary. 4 And he would 
not for a while : but afterward he 
said within himself, Though I fear 
not God, nor regard man ; 6 yet 
because this widow troubleth me, 
I will avenge her, *lest she *wear 
me out by her continual coming. 
6 And the Lord said, Hear what 
* the unrighteous judge saith. 7 And . 
shall not God avenge his elect, 
that cry to him day and night, ^and 
yet he is long suffering over them? 
8 1 say unto you. that he will 
avenge them speedily. Neverthe 
less, when the Son of man cometh, 
shall he find v faith on the earth ?

37 Blessed are those servants, 
whom the Lord when he cometh 
shall find watching : verily I say 
unto you, that he shall gird him 
self, and make them sit down to 
meat, and shall come and serve 
them. & And if he shall come in 
the second watch, and if in the 
third, and find them so, blessed 
are those servants. 



42 Watch therefore : for ye know 
not on what day your Lord com 
eth. 43 *But know this, that if the 
master of the house had known in 
what watch the thief was coming, 
he would have watched, and would 
not have suffered his house to be 
* broken through. 44 Therefore be 
ye also ready ; for in the hour that 
ye think not the Son of man com 
eth.

The Faithful Servant and His Counterpart. 

XXIV: 45-51. XII: 41-46. 

41 And Peter said, Lord, speak- 
est thou this parable unto us, or 
even unto all ? *2 And the Lord said, 
Who then is * the faithful and 
wise steward, whom his lord shall 
seT~bver his household, to give 
them their portion of food in due" 
season ? 43 Blessed is that "servant, 
whom his lord when he cometh 
shall find so doing. 44 Of a truth I 
say unto you, that he will set him 
over all that he hath. 46 But if that 
servant shall say in his heart, My 
lord delayeth his coming ; and shall 
begin to 

beat the menservants 
and the maidservants, and to 
eat and drink, and to be drunken ; 
46 the lord of that servant shall 
come in a day when he expecteth 
not, and in an hour when he 
knoweth not, and shall * cut him 
asunder, and appoint his portion 
with the unfaithful.

knew his lord s will, and made 
not ready, nor did according to 
his will, shall be beaten with many 



45 Who then is the faithful and 
wise servant, whom his lord hath 

m^ff 

set over his household, to give 
them their food in due season? 
46 Blessed is that servant, whom 
his lord when he cometh shall find 
so doing. 47 Verily I say unto 
you, that he will set him over all 
that he hath. But if that evil 
servant shall say in his heart, My 
lord tarrieth ; 49 And shall 
begin to 

beat his fellow-servants, 
and shall 

eat and drink with the drunken ; 
60 the lord of that servant shall 
come in a day when he expecteth 
not, and in an hour when he 
knoweth not, 51 and shall * cut him 
asunder, and appoint his portion 
with the hypocritgsj there shall 
be the weeping and the gnashing 
of teeth.

stripes ; 48 but he that knew not, 
and did things worthy of stripes, 
shall be beaten with few stripes. 
And to whomsoever much is given, 
of him shall much be required : 
and to whom they commit much, 
of him will they ask the more. 
17 7 But who is there of you, hav 
ing a * servant plowing or keeping 
sheep, that will say unto him, 
when he is come in from the field, 
Come straightway and sit down to 
meat ; 8 and will not rather say 
unto him, Make ready wherewith 
I may sup, and gird thyself, and 
serve me, till I have eaten and 
drunken ; and afterward thou shalt 
eat and drink ? 9 Doth he thank 
the servant because he did the 
things that were commanded ? 
10 Even so ye also, when ye shall 
have done all the things that are 
commanded you, say, We are 
unprofitable servants ; we have 
done that which it was our duty 
to do. 



The Parable of the Ten Virgins. 



XXV: 1-13. 

1 Then shall the kingdom of 
heaven be likened unto ten virgins, 
who took their * lamps, and went 
forth to meet the bridegroom. 
2 And five of them were foolish, 
and five were wise. 8 For the 
foolish, when they took their lamps, 
took no oil with them: 4 but the 
wise took oil in their vessels with 
their lamps. 5 Now while the 
bridegroom tarried, they all slum 
bered and slept. 6 But at mid 
night there is a cry, Behold, the 
bridegroom ! Come ye forth to 
meet him. 7 Then all those vir 
gins arose, and trimmed their 
lamps. 8 And the foolish said 
unto the wise, Give us of your 
oil ; for our lamps are going out. 



XII : 35, 36 ; XIII : 25. 



12 3 s Let your loins be girded 
about, and your lamps burning ; 
36 and be ye yourselves like unto 
men looking for their lord, when 
he shall return from the marriage 
feast ; that, when he cometh and 
knocketh, they may straightway 
open unto him. 



126 



Mark. 



Matthew. 

9 But the wise answered, saying, 
Peradventure there will not be 
enough for us and you : go ye 
rather to them that sell, and buy 
for yourselves. 10 And while they 
went away to buy, the bridegroom 
came ; and they that were ready 
went in with him to the marriage 
feast : and the door was shut. 



11 Afterward came also the other 
virgins, saying, Lord, Lord, open 
to us. 12 But he answered and 
said, Verily I say unto you, I know 
you not. 13 Watch therefore, for 
ye know not the day nor the hour. 



Luke. 



13 K When once the mas 
ter of the house is risen up, and 
hath shut to the door, and ye begin 
to stand without, and to knock 
at the door, saying, Lord, open 
to us ; and he srfall answer and 
say to you, I know 
you know not whence ye are. 



The Parable of the Talents. 



XXV : 14-30. 



14 For it is as when a man, going 
into another country, 

called his own * servants, 
and delivered unto them his goods. 
IS And unto one he gave five tal 
ents, to another two, to another 
one ; to each according to his sev 
eral ability ; and he went on his 
journey. 1G Straightway he that re 
ceived the five talents went and 
traded with them, and made other 
five talents. 17 In like manner he 
also that received the two gained 
other two. 18 But he that received 
the one went away and digged in the 
earth, and hid his lord s money. 
19 Now after a long time the lord 
of those servants cometh, and mak- 
eth a reckoning with them. 



20 And 

he that received the five talents, 
came and brought other five talents, 



XIX: 11-27. 

11 And as they heard these things, 
he added and spake a parable, be 
cause he was nigh to Jerusalem, 
and because they supposed that 
the kingdom of God was imme 
diately to appear. 12 He said there 
fore, A certain nobleman went 
into a far country, to receive for 
himself a kingdom, and to return. 
13 And he called ten " servants of 
his, and gave them ten * pounds, 
and said unto them, Trade ye 
herewith till I come. 



14 But his citi 
zens hated him, and sent an am- 
bassage after him, saying, We will 
not that this man reign over us. 

15 And it came to pass, when he 
was come back again, having re 
ceived the kingdom, that he com 
manded these servants, unto whom 
he had given the money, to be 
called to him, that he might know 
what they had gained by trading. 

16 And the first came before him, 



Mark. 



Matthew. 

saying, Lord, thou deliveredst unto 
me five talents : lo, I have gained 
other five talents. 21 His lord said 
unto him, Well done, good and faith 
ful servant : thou hast been faithful 
over a few things, I will set thee 
over many things ; enter thou into 
the joy of thy lord. 22 And he also 
that received the two talents came 
and said, Lord, thou deliveredst 
unto me two talents : lo, I have 
gained other two talents. 23 His 
lord said unto him, Well done, 
good and faithful servant : thou 
hast been faithful over a few things, 
I will set thee over many things ; 
enter thou into the joy of thy lord. 
24 And he also that had received 
the one talent came and said, 
Lord, I knew thee that thou art a 
hard man, reaping where thou 
didst not sow, and, gathering where 
thou didst not scatter ; ^ and I 
was afraid, and went away and 
hid thy talent in the earth : lo, 
thou hast thine own. 26 But 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 did 
not scatter ; 

27 thou oughtest there 
fore to have put my money to the 
bankers, and at my coming I 
should have received back mine 
own with interest. 

28 Take ye away therefore the 
talent from him, and give it unto 
him that hath the ten talents. 

*>For 

unto every one that hath shall be 
given, and he shall have abun 
dance): but from him that hath not, 
even that which he hath shall be 
taken away. 3 And cast ye out 
the unprofitable servant into the 
outer darkness : there shall be the 
weeping and the gnashing of teeth. 



Luke. 



127 



saying, Lord, thy pound hath 

made ten pounds more. 17 And he 
said unto him, Well done, thou 
good servant : because thou wast 
found faithful in a very little, have 
thou authority over ten cities. 

18 And the second came, 
saying, Thy pound, Lord, hath 
made five pounds. 19 And he said 
unto him also, Be thou also over 
five cities. 



30 And * another came, saying, 
Lord, behold, here is thy pound 
which I kept laid up in a napkin : 
21 for I feared thee, because thou 
art an austere man : thou takest 
up that which thou layest not 
down, and reapest that which thou 
didst not sow. 

He saith unto him, 
Out of thine own mouth will I 
judge thee, thou wicked servant. 
Thou knewest that I am an aus 
tere man, taking up that which I 
laid not down, and reaping that 
which I did not sow ; ^ then 
wherefore gavest thou not my 
money into the bank, and * I at 
my coming should have required 
it with interest? 24 And he said 
unto them that stood by, Take 
away from him the pound, and 
give it unto him that hath the 
ten pounds. 2* And they said 
unto him, Lord, he hath ten 
pounds. 26 1 say unto you, that 
unto every one that hath shall be 
given ; but from him that hath 
not, even that which he hath shall 
be taken away from him. 



27 But these mine enemies, that 
would not that I should reign over 
them, bring hither, and slay them 
before me.

thee drink ? ** And when saw we 
thee a stranger, and took thee in?

unto them, Verily I say unto you,

and the chief priests 
and the scribes sought how they 
might take him with subtlety, 
and kill him : 

2 for they said, Not dur

be a tumult of the people. 



1 And it came to pass, when Je 
sus had finished all these words, 
he said unto his disciples, 2 Ye 
know that after two days the pass- 
over cometh, and the Son of man 
is * delivered up to be crucified. 

3 Then were gathered together the 
chief priests, and the elders of the 
people, unto the court of the high 
priest, who was called Caiaphas ; 

4 and they took counsel together that 
they might take Jesus by subtlety, 
and kill him.

3 And while he was in Bethany 
in the house of Simon the leper, 
as he sat at meat, there came a 
woman having *an alabaster cruse 
of ointment of "pure nard very 
costly ; and she brake the cruse, 
and poured it over his head. 

< But 

there were some that had indigna 
tion among themselves, saying, 
To what purpose hath this waste of 
the ointment been made? 5 For this 
ointment might have been sold for 
above three hundred * shillings, 
and given to the poor. And they 
murmured against her. 6 But Jesus 
said, Let her alone ; why 
trouble ye her ? she 
hath wrought a good work on 
me. 7 For ye have the poor al 
ways with you, and whensoever ye 
will ye can do them good : 

but me ye have not 
always. 8 She hath done what 
she could ; she hath anointed my 
body beforehand for the burying. 
9 And verily I say unto you, 
Wheresoever the gospel shall be 
preached throughout the whole 
world, that also which this woman 
hath done shall be spoken of for a

6 Now when Jesus was in Bethany, 
in the house of Simon the leper, 
7 there came unto him a woman 
having * an alabaster cruse of ex 
ceeding precious ointment, 

and she 

poured it upon his head, as *he 
sat at meat. 8 But when the dis 
ciples saw it, they had indigna 
tion, saying, 

To what purpose is this waste ? 
9 For this 

ointment might have been sold for 
much, 
and given to the poor. 

10 But Jesus 

perceiving it said unto them, Why 
trouble ye the woman ? for she 
hath wrought a good work upon 
me. n For ye have the poor al 
ways with you ; 

but me ye have not 
always. 12 For in that she "poured 
this ointment upon my body, she 
did it to prepare me for burial. 
13 Verily I say unto you, 
Wheresoever this gospel shall be 
preached in the whole world, 
that also which this woman 
hath done shall be spoken of for a 
memorial of her.

36 And one of the Pharisees de 
sired him that he would eat with 
him. And he entered into the 
Pharisee s hfluse, and * sat down 
down to meat. S7 And behold, a 
woman who was in the city, a 
sinner ; and when she knew that 
he was sitting at meat in the Phar 
isee s house, she brought *an ala 
baster cruse of ointment, 38 and 
standing behind at his feet, weep 
ing, she began to wet his feet with 
her tears, and wiped them with 
the hair of -her head, and *kissed 
his feet, and anointed them with 
the ointment. 39 Now when the 
Pharisee that had bidden him saw 
it, he spake within himself, saying, 
This man, if he were :; a prophet, 
would have perceived who and 
what manner of woman this is 
that toucheth him, that she is a 
sinner. And Jesus answering 
said unto him, Simon, I have 
somewhat to say unto thee. And 
he saith, Teacher, say on. 41 A 
certain lender had two debtors : 
the one owed five hundred * shill 
ings, and the other fifty. <2 When 
they had not -wherewith to pay, 
he forgave them both. Which of 
them therefore will love him most ? 
43 Simon answered and said, He, 
I suppose, to whom he forgave 
the most. And he said unto him, 
Thou hast rightly judged. 44 And 
turning to the woman, he said 
unto Simon, Seest thou this woman? 
I entered into thy house, thou 
gavest me no water for my feet : 
but she hath wetted my feet with 
her tears, and wiped them with 
her hair. 45 Thou gavest me no 
kiss : but she, since the time I 
came in, hath not ceased to*kiss 
my feet. 46 My head with oil thou 
didst not anoint: but she hath 
anointed my feet with ointment. 
47 Where r ore I say unto thee, Her 
sins, which are many, are forgiven; 
for she loved much : but to whom 
little is forgiven, the same loveth 
little. 48 And he said unto her, 
Thy sins are forgiven. 49 And 
they that sat at meat with him be 
gan to say * w i t h i n themselves, 
Who is this that even forgiveth 
sins ? 5 And he said unto the 
woman, Thy faith hath saved thee ;

3 And Satan entered into Judas

the number of the twelve. 4 And 
he went away, and communed 
with the chief priests and captains, 
how he might " deliver him unto 
them.

liver him unto them * in the ab 
sence of the multitude. 



The Preparation for the Passover. 



XIV: 12-17. 

12 And on the first day of 
unleavened bread, when they sac 
rificed the passover, his disciples 
say unto him, Where wilt thou 
that we go and make ready that 
thou mayest eat the passover? 

13 And he sendeth two of his dis 
ciples, and saith unto them, Go 
into the city, and there shall meet 
you a man bearing a pitcher of 
water : follow him ; 14 and where 
soever he shall enter in, say to 
the master of the house, 

The Teacher saith, 
Where is my guest chamber, where 

I shall eat the passover with my 
disciples ? 

15 And he will himself show you 
a large upper room furnished and 
ready : and there make ready for 
us. 16 And the disciples went forth, 
and came into the city, and found 
as he had said unto them : and 
they made ready the passover. 
17 And when it was evening he 
cometh with the twelve. 



XIV: 18-21. 

18 And as they * sat and were eat 
ing, Jesus said, Verily I say unto 
you, One of you shall "betray me, 
even he that eateth with me. 
19 They began to be sorrowful, and 
to say unto him one by one, Is it 
I ? 20 And he said unto them, // 



XXVI : 17-20. 

17 Now on the first day of un 
leavened bread the disciples came 
to Jesus, saying, 

Where wilt thou 

that we make ready for thee to eat

18 And he said, Go 
into the city to such a man, and 
say unto him, 



The Teacher saith, 
My time is at hand ; 

I keep the 

passover at thy house with my 
disciples. 



19 And the disciples did

they were exceeding sorrowful, 
and began to say unto him every 
one, Is it I, Lord ? 2 s And he an- 



XXII : 7-14. 

7 And the day of unleavened 
bread came, on which the pass- 
over must be sacrificed. 8 And he 
sent Peter and John, saying, Go 
and make ready for us the pass- 
over, that we may eat. 9 And they 
said unto him, Where wilt thou 
that we make ready ? M And he 
said unto them, Behold, when ye 
are entered into the city, there 
shall meet you a man bearing a 
pitcher of water ; follow him into 
the house whereinto he goeth. 
11 And ye shall say unto the master 
of the house, The Teacher saith 
unto thee, Where is the guest-

passover with my disciples? 12 And 
he will show you a large upper 
room furnished : there make ready. 



13 And they went, and found as he 

had said unto them : and they 
made ready the passover. 

14 And when the hour was come,

among themselves, which of them 
it was that should do this thing. 



The Establishment of the Lord s Supper. 



XIV : 22-25. 



22 And as they were eating, he 
took * bread, and when he had 
blessed, he brake it, and gave to 
them, and said, Take ye : this is 
my body. 

28 And he took a cup, and 
when he had given thanks, he gave 
to them : and they all drank of it. 
24 And he said unto them, This is 
my blood of the * covenant, which 
is poured out for many. 26 Verily 
I say unto you, 

I shall no more drink 
of the fruit of the vine, until that 
day when I drink it new in the 
kingdom of God. 



XTV: 26-31. 

26 And when they had sung a 
hymn, they went out unto the 
mount of Olives. 

27 And Jesus saith unto them, 
All ye shall be * offended:

I am raised up, I will go before

them, saying, Drink ye all of it ;

my blood of the * covenant, which 
is poured out for many unto remis

shall be scattered abroad. 32 But 
after I am raised up, I will go before 
you into Galilee. 



XXII: 15-20. 



15 And he said unto them, With 
desire I have desired to eat this 
passover with you before I suffer : 
16 for I say unto you, I shall not 
eat it, until it be fulfilled in the 
kingdom of God. 17 And he re 
ceived a cup, and when he had

29 But Peter said unto him, Al 
though all shall be offended, 
yet will not I. ^And 

Jesus saith unto him, Verily I 
say unto thee, that thou to-day, 
even this night, 

before the cock crow twice, shall 
deny me thrice.

exceeding vehemently, If I mast die 
with thee, I will not deny thee. 
And in like manner also said they 
all. 



XIV: 32-42. 

82 And they come unto * a place 
which was named Gethsemane : 
and he saith unto his disciples, 
Sit ye here, while I 
pray. ^ And he taketh with him 
Peter and James and John, and be 
gan to be greatly amazed, and sore 
troubled, 34 And he saith unto them, 
My soul is exceeding sorrowful even 
unto death : abide ye here, and 
watch. ss And he went 

forward a little, and fell on the 
ground, and prayed that, 

if it were possible, the hour 
might pass away from him. 



33 But Peter answered and said 
unto him, If all shall be "offended 
in thee, I will never be offended. 
34 Jesus said unto him, Verily I 
say unto thee, that this night, 

before the cock crow, thou shall 
deny me thrice.

Sil ye here, while I go yonder and 
pray. 37 And he took wilh him 
Peler and the two sons of Zebedee, 
and began to be sorrowful and sore 
troubled. ^Then saith he unto them, 
My soul is exceeding sorrowful, even 
unto death : abide ye here, and

thou hast turned again, establish 
thy brethren. 

83 And he said unto him, Lord, 
with thee I am ready to go both 
to prison and to death. 34 And he 
said, I tell thee, Peter, 

the cock shall 

not crow this day, until thou shall 
thrice deny that thou knowest me. 



Past and Future. 

XXII: 35-38. 

35 And he said unto them, When 
I sent you forth without purse, 
and wallet, and shoes, lacked ye 
anything? And they said, Noth 
ing. ^And he said unto them, 
But now, he that hath a purse, 
let him take it, and likewise a 
wallet ; *and he that hath none, 
let him sell his cloak, and buy a 
sword. 37 For I say unto you, 
that this which is written must be 
fulfilled in me. * And he was 
reckoned with transgressors : for 
that which concerneth me hath 
"fulfilment. & And they said, Lord, 
behold, here are two swords. 
And he said unto them, It is 
enough. 



XXII : 39-46. 

89 And he came out, and went, 
as his custom was, unto the mount 
of Olives ; and the disciples also 
followed him. 40 And when he 
was at the place, he said unto 
them, Pray that ye enter not into 
temptation. 



41 And he was parted from 
them about a stone s cast ; and he 
kneeled down and prayed, 42 saying, 
Father, if thou be willing, re 
move this cup from me : neverthe-

37 And he cometh 

and findeth them sleeping, 
and saith unto Peter, 
Simon, sleepest thou ? couldest 
thou not watch one hour? 
38 * Watch and pray, that ye enter 
not into temptation : the spirit 
indeed is willing, but the flesh is 
weak. ^And again he 

went away, and prayed, saying 
he same words. 

40 And again he came, 
and found them sleeping, for their 
eyes were very heavy ; and they 
knew not what to answer him.

and saith unto them, * Sleep on 
now, and take your rest : it is 
enough ; the hour is come ; be

43 And straightway, 
while he yet spake, cometh Judas, 
one of the twelve, and with him 
a multitude with swords and staves, 
from the chief priests and the scribes 
and the elders. 44 Now he that 
betrayed him had given them a 
token, saying, Whomsoever I shall

he came to him, and saith, 
Rabbi : and * kissed him.

disciples,and findeth them sleeping, 
and saith unto Peter, 

What, could 

ve not watch with me one hour ? 
41 * Watch and pray, that ye enter 
not into temptation : the spirit 
indeed is willing, but the flesh is 
weak. 42 Again a second time he 
went away, and prayed, saying, 
My Father, if this cannot pass 
away, except I drink it, thy will 
be done. 43 And he came again 
and found them sleeping, for their 
eyes were heavy. 44 And he left 
them again, and went away, and 
prayed a third time, saying again 
the same words.

unto them, 



Are ye come out, as 
against a robber, with swords and 
staves to seize me? 49 I was daily 
with you in the temple teaching,

he was sitting with the officers, 
and warming himself in the light 
of the fire. 5S Now the chief priests

up again thy sword into its place : 
for all they that take the sword 
shall perish with the sword. ^Or 
thinkest thou that I cannot be

even now send me more than

then should the scriptures be ful

Suffer ye them thus far. And he 
touched his ear, and healed him.

certain, and bare false witness 
against him, saying, & We heard 
him say, I will destroy this *temple

three days I will build another 
made without hands. s9 And not 
even so did their witness agree 
together. "O And the high priest 
stood up in the midst, and asked 
Jesus saying, Answerest thou noth 
ing ? what is it which these wit 
ness against thee ? 61 But he held 
his peace, and answered nothing. 
Again the high priest asked him, 

and saith unto him, Art thou the 
Christ, the Son of the Blessed ? 



62 And Jesus said, I am : 

and ye 

shall see the Son of man sitting at 
the right hand of Power, and com

clothes, and saith, 

What further need 
have we of witnesses ? ** Ye 
have heard the blasphemy : 
what think ye? And they all con 
demned him to be " "worthy of death.

and to cover his face, and to buffet 
him, and to say unto him, 
Prophesy : and the officers received 
him with * blows of their hands. 



XIV: 66-72. 

66 And as Peter was beneath in 
the court, there cometh one of the 
maids of the high priest ; 67 and 
seeing Peter warming himself, 
she looked upon him and saith, 
Thou also wast with the Nazarene, 
even Jesus. ** But he denied, 
saying, * I neither know, nor un 
derstand what thou sayest : and 
he went out into the * porch ;

But afterward came two, 61 and 
said, This man said, I am able to

hast said : nevertheless I say unto 
you, Henceforth ye 

shall see the Son of man sitting at 
the right hand of Power, and com 
ing on the clouds of heaven. 
66 Then the high priest rent his 
garments, saying, He hath spoken 
blasphemy : 

what further need 
have we of witnesses? behold, 
now ye have heard the blasphemy : 

66 what think ye ? They answered 
and said, He is * worthy of death. 

67 Then did they spit in his face 
and buffet him : and some smote him 

with the palms of their hands, 

68 saying, Prophesy unto us, thou 
hrist : who is he that struck thee ? 



Peter s Denial. 

XXVI: 69-75. 

69 Now Peter was sitting without 
in the court : and a maid came un 
to him, saying, 



Thou also wast with 
Jesus the Galiloean. 70 But he denied 
before them all, saying, 
I know not what thou sayest. n And 
when he was gone out into the porch, 



66 And as soon as it was 
day, the assembly of the elders of 
the people was gathered together, 
both chief priests and scribes; 
and they led him away into their 
council, saying, 67 If thou art the 
Christ, tell us. But he said unto 
them, If I tell you, ye will not 
believe : ^and if I ask you, ye 
will not answer. 69 But from hence 
forth shall the Son of man be 
seated at the right hand of the 
power of God. 70 And they all 
said, Art thou then the Son of 
God ? And he said unto them, 
*Ye say that I am. "And they said, 
What further need 
have we of witness ? for we our 
selves have heard from his own 
mouth. 

63 And the men that held 
* Jesus mocked him, and beat him. 
64 And they blindfolded him, and 
asked him, saying, Prophesy : who 
is he that struck thee ? ** And 
many other things spake they 
against him, reviling him.

56 And a certain maid seeing 
him as he sat in the light of the 
fire, and looking steadfastly upon 
him, said, 

This man also was with

saying, 

Woman I know him not. M And

saw him, and began again to say 
to them that stood by, This is one 
of them. 7 But he again 

denied it. 

And after a little 
while again they that stood by 
said to Peter, Of a truth thou 
art one of them ; for thou art a 
Galikean. " But he 

began to curse and to swear, 
I know not this man of whom ye 
speak. 72 And straightway

called to mind the word, how that 
Jesus said unto him, Before the

thereon, he wept.

saw him, and saith unto them that 
were there, This man also was with

denied with an oath, I know not

while they that stood by came 
and said to Peter, Of a truth thou 
also art one of them ; for thy 
speech maketh thee known. 74 Then 
began he to curse and to swear, 
I know not the man. 

And Ltraightway-

Thou also art one

am not. 

fi9 And after the space of 
about one hour, another confidently 
affirmed, saying, Of a truth this 
man also was with him ; for he 
is a Galilaean. 6 But Peter said, 

Man, I know not what thou sayest. 
And immediately while he yet 
spake the cock crew. 61 And the 
Lord turned, and looked upon 
Peter. And Peter remembered

3 Then Judas, who "betrayed 
him, when he saw that he was 
condemned, repented himself, and 
brought back the thirty pieces of 
silver to the chief priests and 
elders, * saying, I have sinned in 
that I betrayed * innocent blood. 
But they said, What is that to us? 
see thou to it. 6 And he cast down 
the pieces of silver into the sanc 
tuary, and departed ; and he went 
away and hanged himself. 6 And 
the chief priests took the pieces of 
silver, and said, It is not lawful to 
put them into the * treasury, since 
it is the price of blood. 7 And 
they took counsel, and bought 
with them the potter s field, to bury 
strangers in. 8 Wh ere fore that 
field was called, The field of blood, 
unto this day. 9 Then was fulfill 
ed that which was spoken through 
Jeremiah the prophet, saying 
* And * they took the thirty piece: 
of silver, the price of him that

*And the whole company of 



them rose up, and brought him 
before Pilate. 



Mark. 



XV: 2-5. 



2 And Pilate asked him, Art thou 
the King of the Jews? And he 
answering saith unto him, Thou 
sayest. 

3 And the chief priests 
accused him of many things. 

4 And Pilate again asked him, 
saying, Answerest thou nothing? 
behold how many things 

they accuse thee of. 6 But Jesus 
no more answered anything; 
insomuch that 
Pilate marvelled. 



Matthew. 

was priced, * whom certain of the 
children of Israel did price; 10 and 
* they gave them for the potter s 
field, as the Lord appointed me. 

Christ Before Pilate. 

XXVII : 11-14. 



11 Now 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. 12 And when he was 
accused by the chief priests and 
elders, he answered nothing. 
13 Then saith Pilate unto him, 
Hearest thou not 

how many things 
they witness against thee ? 14 And 
he gave him no answer, not even 
to one word : insomuch that the 
governor marvelled greatly. 



Luke. 



139 



XXIII : 2-5. 

2 And they began to accuse him, 
saying, We found this man per 
verting our nation, and forbidding 
to give tribute to Caesar, and 
saying that he himself is Christ 
a king. s And Pilate 

asked him, saying, Art thou 
the King of the Jews? And he 
answered him and said, Thou 
sayest. 



4 And Pi 
late said unto the chief priests and 
the multitudes, I find no fault in 
this man. 5 But they were the 
more urgent, saying, He stirreth 
up the people, teaching through 
out all Judaea, and beginning from 
Gallilee even unto this place. 

Pilate and Herod. 

XXIII: 6-16. 

6 But when Pilate heard it, he 
asked whether the man were a 
Galilasan. 7 And when he knew 
that he was of Herod s jurisdic 
tion, he sent him unto Herod, who 
limself also was at Jerusalem in 
these days. 8 Now when Herod saw 
Jesus, he was exceeding glad : for 
ic was of a long time desirous to 
see him, because he had heard con 
cerning him ; and he hoped to see 
iome * miracle done by him. 
9 And he questioned him in many 

ords ; but he answered him 
nothing. 10 And the chief priests 
and the scribes stood, vehemently 
accusing him. J1 And Herod with 
lis soldiers set him at nought, and 
mocked him, and arraying him in 

prgeous apparel sent him back to 
Pilate. 12 And Herod and Pilate 



140 



Mark. 



Matthew. 



Luke. 

became friends with each other 
that very day : for before they were 
at enmity between themselves. 

13 And Pilate called together the 
chief priests and the rulers and the 
people, u and said unto them, Ye 
brought unto me this man, as one 
that perverteth the people : and 
behold, I, having examined him 
before you, found no fault in this 
man touching those things where 
of ye accuse him : 15 no, nor yet 
Herod : for *he sent him back 
unto us ; and behold nothing 
worthy of death hath been done 
by him. 18 I will therefore chas 
tise him and release him.* 



XV : 6-15. 

6 Now at * the feast he used 
to release unto 

them one prisoner, whom they 
asked of him. 7 And there was 

one called Barabbas, 
lying bound with them that had 
made insurrection, men who in 
the insurrection had committed 
murder. 8 And the multitude 
went up and began to ask him to 
do as he was wont to do unto 
them. 9 And Pilate answered 
them saying, Will ye that I re 
lease unto you the King of the 
Jews? 

10 For he perceived that for 
envy the chief priests had delivered 
him up. 



11 But the chief priests 
stirred up the multitude, that 
he should rather release Barabbas 
unto them. 

12 And Pilate again answered and 
said unto them, What then shall I do 
unto him whom ye call the King of 
the Jews? ]3 And they cried out 
again, Crucify him. 

14 And Pilate said unto them, 



Jesus and Barabbas. 

XXVII : 15-26. 
15 Now at *the feast the governor 
was wont to release unto the 
multitude one prisoner, whom they 
would. 1<; And they had then a 
notable prisoner, called Barabbas. 



17 When therefore they were 
gathered together, Pilate said unto 
them, Whom will ye that I re 
lease unto you ? Barabbas, or 
Jesus who is called Christ? 

18 For he knew that for 
envy they had delivered 
him up. 

19 And while he was sitting on the 
judgment-seat, his wife sent unto 
him, saying, Have thou nothing to 
do with that righteous man ; for I 
have suffered many things this day 
in a dream because of him. 

20 Now the chief priests and 
the elders persuaded the multitudes 
that they should ask for Barabbas, 
and destroy Jesus. 

21 But the governor answered and 
said unto them, Which of the two 
will ye that I release unto you ? 
And they said, Barabbas. 

22 Pilate saith unto them, 
What then shall I do unto Jesus who 
is called Christ? They all say, Let 
him be crucified. K And he said, 



XXIII: (17) * 18-25. 



Why, what evil hath he done? Why, what evil hath he done? 



18 But they cried out all together, 
saying, Away with this man, and 
release unto us Barabbas : ltf one 
who for a certain insurrection made 
in the city, and for murder, was 
cast into prison. 



20 And Pilate spake unto them 
again, desiring to release Jesus ; 
21 but they shouted, saying, 
Crucify, crucify him. & And he said 
unto them a third time, 
Why, what evil hath this man done? 



Mark. 



But they cried out exceedingly, 
Crucify him. 



15 And Pilate, wishing 
to content the multitude, released 
unto them Barabbas, and delivered 
Jesus, when he had scourged him, 
to be crucified. 



Matthew. 



But they cried out exceedingly, 
saying, Let him be crucified. 



24 So when Pilate saw that he 
prevailed nothing, but rather that 
a tumult was arising, he took 
water, and washed his hands be 
fore the multitude, saying, I am 
innocent *of the blood of this 
righteous man ; see ye to it. 
25 And all the people answered 
and said, His blood be on us, and 
on our children. 26 Then released 
he unto them Barabbas ; but 
Jesus he scourged and delivered 
to be crucified. 



Luke.

Mocking "the King of the Jews." 



XV: 16-20. 

16 And the soldiers led him 
away within the court, which is 
the * Prsetorium ; and they call to 
gether the whole * band. 17 And 

they clothe him with purple, and 
platting a crown of thorns, they 
put it on him ; 

18 and they 

began to salute him, Hail, King of 
the Jews! 19 And they smote 
his head with a reed, and spat 
upon him, and bowing their 
knees * worshipped him. w And 
when they had mocked him, they 
took off from him the purple, and 
put on him his garments. And 
they lead him out to crucify him. 



XV : 21, 

21 And they * compel one pass 
ing by, Simon of Cyrene, coming 
from the country, the father of 
Alexander and Rufus, to go with 
them, that he might bear his cross. 



XXVII: 27-31. 

27 Then the soldiers of the gov 
ernor took Jesus into 
the "Praetorium, and gathered unto 
him the whole *band. ^And 
they * stripped him, and put on 
him a scarlet robe. ^ And they 
platted a crown of thorns and 
put it upon his head, and a reed 
in his right hand ; and they 
kneeled down before him, and 
mocked him, saying, Hail, King of 
the Jews ! 5 And they spat upon 
him, and took the reed and smote 
him on the head. 

31 And 

when they had mocked him, they 
took off from him the robe, and 
put on him his garments, and 
led him away to crucify him. 

Going to the Execution. 

XXVII : 32. 

32 And as they came out, they 
found a man of Cyrene, Simon by 
name : 

him they " compelled to go with 
them, that he might bear his cross. 



I have found no cause of death in 
him : I will therefore chastise him 
and release him. 23 But they were 
urgent with loud voices, asking 
that he might be crucified. And 
their voices prevailed. 



24 And Pilate gave sentence that 
what they asked for should be 
done. 25 And he released him 
that for insurrection and murder had 
been cast into prison, whom they 
asked for; but Jesus he delivered 
up to their will. 



XXIII: 26-32. 

26 And when they led him away, 
they laid hold upon one Simon of 
Cyrene, coming from the country, 
and laid on him the 

cross, to bear it after Jesus. 

27 And there followed him a 
great multitude of the people, 
and of women who bewailed and 
lamented him. ^ But Jesus turn 
ing unto them said, Daughters of 
Jerusalem, weep not for me, but 
weep for yourselves, and for your 
children. ^For behold, the days 



142 



Mark. 



Matthew. 



XV: 22-32. 

22 And they bring him unto the 
place Golgotha, which is, being 
interpreted, the place of a skull. 
23 And they offered him wine 
mingled with myrrh : but he re 
ceived it not. 



24 And they crucify him, and 
part his garments among them, 
casting lots upon them, what each 
should take. 25 And it was the 
third hour, and they crucified him. 

26 And the superscription o f 
his accusation was written over, 

THE KING OF THE JEWS. 

27 And with him they crucify 
two robbers ; one on his right 
hand, and one on his left.* w And 
they that passed by railed on him, 
wagging their heads, and saying, 
Ha ! thou that destroyest the * tem 
ple, and buildest it in three days, 
80 save thyself, and 

come down from the cross. 
31 In like manner also the chief 
priests mocking him among them 
selves with the scribes said, He 
saved others; * himself he cannot 
save. i* 2 Let the Christ, the King 
of Israel, now come down from 
the cross, that we may see and 
believe. 



The Execution. 

XXVII: 33-44. 
33 And when they were come 
unto a place called Golgotha, that 
is to say, The place of a skull, 
34 they gave him wine to drink 
mingled with gall : and when he 
had tasted it, he would not drink. 



55 And when they had crucified him, 
they parted his garments among 
them, casting lots ; ** and they sat 
and watched him there. 

37 And they set up over his head 
his accusation written, THIS is 
JESUS THE KING OF THE JEWS. 

88 Then are there crucified with 
him two robbers, one on the right 
hand and one on the left. S9 And 
they that passed by railed on him, 
wagging their heads, 40 and saying, 
Thou that destroyest the * tem 
ple, and buildest it in three days, 
save thyself: if thou art the Son of 
God, come down from the cross. 
41 In like manner also, the chief 
priests mocking him, with the 
scribes and elders, said, ^ He 
saved others ; * himself he cannot 
save. He is the King of Israel ; 
let him now come down from 
the cross, and we will believe on 
him. 43 He trusteth on God ; let 
him deliver him now, if he desireth 
him : for he said, I am the Son 
of God.

say, Blessed are the barren, and 
the wombs that never bare, and 
the breasts that never gave suck. 
30 Then shall they begin to say to 
the mountains, P all on us; and to 
the hills, Cover us. 31 For if they 
do these things in the green tree, 
what shall be done in the dry ? 
32 And there were also two 
others, malefactors, led with him 
to be put to death. 



XXIII: 33-43. 

53 And when they came unto the 
place which is called *The skull, 
there they crucified him, 



and the 

malefactors, one on the right hand 
and the other on the left. ^ "And 
Jesus said, Father, forgive them ; 
for they know not what they do. 
And parting his garments among 
them, they cast lots. M And the 
people stood beholding. 



And the rulers 
also scoffed at him, 

saying, He 

saved others ; let him save him 
self, if this is the Christ of God, 
his chosen. 



86 And the soldiers 
also mocked him, coming to him, 
offering him vinegar, ^and say 
ing, If thou art the King of the 
Jews, save thyself. ^And there 
was also a superscription over 



Mark. 



And they 

that were crucifie.d with him 
reproached him. 



XV. 33-41. 

83 And when the sixth hour was 
come, there was darkness over the 
whole * land until the ninth hour. 



84 And at the ninth hour Jesus 
cried with a loud voice, Eloi, 
Eloi, lama sabachthini ? which 
is, being interpreted, * My God, 
my God, * why hast thou forsaken 
me ? ^ And some of them that 
stood by, when they heard it, 
said, Behold, he calleth Elijah. 
86 And one ran, 

and filling a sponge 
full of vinegar, put it on a reed, 
and gave him to drink, 
saying,

The Death of Jesus. 

XXVII: 45-56. 
45 Now from the sixth hour 
there was darkness over all the 
* land until the ninth hour. 



46 And about the ninth hour Jesus 
cried with a loud voice, saying, 
* Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani ? that 
is, My God, 

my God, * why hast thou forsaken 
me ? 47 And some of them that 
stood there, when they heard it, 
said, This man calleth Elijah. 
48 And straightway one of them ran, 
and took a sponge, and filled it 
with vinegar, and put it on a reed, 
and gave him to drink. 49 And the 
rest said, 

Let be ; let us see whether Elijah 
cometh to save him.* 



80 And Jesus cried again with a 
loud voice, 

and yielded up his spirit. 
61 And behold, the veil of the * tem 
ple was rent in two from the top 
to the bottom ; and the earth did 
quake ; and the rocks were rent ; 
M and the tombs were opened ; 
and many bodies of the saints 
that had fallen asleep were raised ; 



him, THIS is THE KING OF THE 
JEWS. 

39 And one of the malefac 
tors that were hanged railed on 
him, saying, Art not thou the 
Christ ? save thyself and us. 
40 But the other answered, and 
rebuking him, said, Dost thou not 
even fear God, seeing thou art in 
the same condemnation ? 41 And 
we indeed justly ; for we receive 
the due reward of our deeds : 
but this man hath done nothing 
amiss. ^And he said, Jesus, 
remember me when thou comest 
in thy kingdom. 43 And he said 
unto him, Verily I say unto thee, 
To-day shall thou be with me in 
Paradise. 



XXIII : 44-49. 
44 And it was now about the sixth 
hour, and a darkness came over the 
whole * land until the ninth hour, 
45:11 the sun s light failing : and the 
veil of the "temple was rent in the 
midst. 



46 * And Jesus, crying with a 
loud voice, said, Father, into thy 
hands I commendmyspirit: and hav 
ing said this, he gave up the ghost. 



144 



Mark. 



39 And when 

the centurion, who stood by over 
against him, saw that he so gave 
up the ghost, 

he said, Truly this 
man was * the Son of God. 



Matthew. 

53 and coming forth out of the 
tombs after his resurrection 
they entered into the holy city 
and appeared unto many. M Now 
the centurion, and they that were 
with him watching Jesus, when 
they saw the earthquake, and the 
things that were done, feared 
exceedingly, saying, Truly this 
was * the Son of God. 



there were also women beholding 
from afar : 

among whom were both Mary 
Magdalene, and Mary the mother 
of James the * less and of Joses, and 
Salome ; 41 who, when he was in 
Galilee, followed him, and minis 
tered unto him ; and many other 
women that came up with him unto 
Jerusalem. 

XV : 42-47. 

And when even was now come, 
because it was the Preparation, 
that is, the day before the sabbath, 
43 there came Joseph of Arima- 
thsea, a councillor of honorable 
estate, who also himself was look 
ing for the kingdom of God ; 
and he boldly went in unto Pilate, 
and asked for the body of Jesus. 
4 *And Pilate marvelled if he were 
already dead : and calling unto 
him the centurion, he asked him 
whether he * had been any while 
dead. 45 And when he learned it 
of the centurion, he granted the 
corpse to Joseph. ** And he 
bought a linen cloth, and taking 
him down, wound him in the 
linen cloth, and laid him in a 
tomb which had been hewn out of a 
rock ; and he rolled a stone against 
the door of the tomb. 

47 And Mary Mag 
dalene and Mary the mother of 
Joses beheld where he was laid. 



"And 

many women were there beholding 
from afar, who had followed Jesus 
from Galilee, ministering unto 
him: M among whom was Mary 
Magdalene, and Mary the mother 
of James and Joses, and the mother 
of the sons of Zebedee. 



The Burial. 

XXVII : 57-61 



57 And when even was come, 
there came a rich man from Ari- 
mathsea, named Joseph, who also 
himself was Jesus disciple : 

68 this man went to Pilate, and 
asked for the body of Jesus. 



Then Pilate commanded it to be 
given up. 59 And Joseph took the 
body, 

and wrapped it in a clean 
linen cloth, w 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 tomb, 
and departed. 

61 And Mary Mag 
dalene was there, and the other 
Mary, sitting over against the 
sepulchre. 



Luke. 



47 And when 
the centurion saw what was 
done, he glorified God, 

saying, Certainly this 
was a righteous man. ^ And all 
the multitudes that came together 
to this sight, when they beheld 
the things that were done, re 
turned smiting their breasts. 
49 And all his acquaintance, and 
the women that followed with him 
from Galilee, stood afar off, seeing 
these things. 



XXIII: 50-56. 

to And behold, a man named 
Joseph, who was a councillor, a 
good and righteous man M (he 
had not consented to their counsel 
and deed), a man of Arimathaea, 
a city of the Jews, who was look 
ing for the kingdom of God : 
42 this man went to Pilate, and 
asked for the body of Jesus. 



*3 And he took it down, 



and wrapped it in a 
linen cloth, and laid him in a 
tomb that was hewn in stone, 
where never man had yet lain. 
54 And it was the day of the Prepa 
ration, and the sabbath "drew on. 
w And the women, who had come 
with him out of Galilee, followed 
after and beheld the tomb, and 
how his body was laid. * And they 
returned and prepared spices and 
ointments And on the sabbath 
day they rested according to the 
commandment. 



Mark. 



XVI: 1-8. 

1 And when the sabbath was 
past, Mary Magdalene, and Mary 
the mother of James, and Salome, 
bought spices, that they might 
come and anoint him. 2 And very 
early on the first day of the week, 
they come to the tomb when the 
sun was risen. 



3 And they were 

saying among themselves, Who 
shall roll us away the stone from 
the door of the tomb ? 4 and look 
ing up, they see that the stone is 
rolled back : for it was exceeding 
great. 6 And entering into the 
tomb, they saw a young man sit 
ting on the right side, arrayed in 
a white robe ; and they were 
amazed.

The Watch at the Grave. 

XXVII : 62-66. 

6Z Now on the morrow, which 
is the day after the Preparation, 
the chief priests and the Phari 
sees were gathered together unto 
Pilate, s 3 saying, Sir, we remem 
ber that that deceiver said while 
he was yet alive, After three days 
I rise again. 64 Command there 
fore that the sepulchre be made 
sure until the third day, lest haply 
his disciples come and steal him 
away, and say unto the people, 
He is risen from the dead : and 
the last error will be worse than 
the first. * Pilate said unto them, 
* Ye have a guard : go, * make it 
as sure as ye can. ** So they 
went, and made the sepulchre 
sure, sealing the stone, the guard 
being with them.

The Empty Tomb. 

XXVIII : 1-10. 
1 Now late on the sabbath day, 



as it began to dawn toward 
the first day of the week, 
came Mary Magdalene and the other 
Mary to see the sepulchre. 2 And be 
hold, there was a great earthquake ; 
for an angel of the Lord descended 
from heaven, and came and rolled 
away the stone, and sat upon it. 

3 His appearance was as lightning, 
and his raiment white as snow : 

4 and for fear of him the watchers 
did quake, and became as dead 
men. 



Luke. 



145 



XXIV: 1-11(12). 



1 But on the first day of the week, 
at early dawn, they came unto 
the tomb, bringing the spices 
which they had prepared. 



2 And 

they found the stone rolled away 
from the tomb. 



8 And they entered in, 



and found not the body * of the 
Lord Jesus. 4 And it came to pass, 
while they were perplexed there 
about, behold, two men stood by

Mark. 



6 And he saith unto 
them, Be not amazed : 

ye seek 

Jesus, the Nazarene, who hath 
been crucified : he is risen ; he is 
not here : behold, 

the place where 
they laid him ! 

1 But go, tell Ms 
disciples and Peter, 

He goeth be 

fore you into Galilee : there shall 
ye see him, as he said unto you. 



8 And they went out, and fled 
from the tomb : for trembling and 
astonishment had come upon 
them : and they said nothing to 
any one ; for they were afraid. 



Matthew. 



6 And the angel answered 
and said unto the women, Fear not 
ye ; for I know that ye seek 
Jesus, who hath 

been crucified. 6 He is 

not here ; for he is risen, even as he 
said. Come, see the place * where 
the Lord lay. 

1 And go quickly, and tell his 
disciples, He is risen from the 
dead ; and lo, 

he goeth be 
fore you into Galilee ; there shall 
ye see him : lo, I have told you. 



8 And they departed quickly 
from the tomb with fear and great 
joy, and ran to bring his disciples 
word. 9 And behold, Jesus met 
them, saying, All hail. And they 
came and took hold of his feet, and 
* worshipped him. 10 Then saith 
Jesus unto them, Fear not : go tell 
my brethren that they depart into 
Galilee, and there shall they see 
me. 



The Fraud of the Priests 
and Elders. 

XXVIII : 11-15. 

11 Now, while they were going, 
behold, some of the guard came 
into the city, and told unto the 
chief priests all the things that 
were come to pass. J2 And when 
they were assembled with the 
elders, and had taken counsel, 



Luke. 

them in dazzling apparel : 6 and as 
they were affrighted and bowed 
down their faces to the earth, they 
said unto them, Why seek ye *the 
living among the dead ? 

6*Heis 
not here, but is risen : 



remember 

how he spake unto you when he 
was yet in Galilee, 7 saying that 
the Son of man must be delivered 
up into the hands of sinful men, 
and be crucified, and the third day 
rise again. 



8 And they remembered 
his words, 9 and returned * from 
the tomb, and told all these things 
to the eleven, and to all the rest. 
10 Now they were Mary Magda 
lene, and Joanna, and Mary the 
mother of James : and the other 
women with them told these things 
unto the apostles. u And these 
words appeared in their sight as 
idle talk ; and they disbelieved 
them. 

(Some ancient authorities omit 
ver. 12.) 

12 *But Peter arose, and ran unto 
the tomb ; and stooping and look 
ing in, he seeth the linen cloths by 
themselves ; and he * departed to 
his home, wondering at that which 
was come to pass.

The Walk to Emmaus. 

XXIV: 13-35. 

13 And behold, two of them 
were going that very day to a vil 
lage named Emmaus, which was 
threescore furlongs from Jerusa 
lem. 14 And they communed 
with each other of all these things 
which had happened. 15 And it 
came to pass, while they commun 
ed and questioned together, that 
Jesus himself drew near, and went 
with them. lli But their eyes 
were holden that they should not 
know him. 17 And he said unto 
them, *What communications are 
these that ye have one with anoth 
er, as ye walk ? And they stood 
still, looking sad. 18 And one ot 
them, named Cleopas, answering 
said unto him, * Dost thou alone 
sojourn in Jerusalem and not know 
the things which are come to pass 
there in these days? 19 And he 
said unto them, What things ? 
And they said unto him, The 
things concerning Jesus the Naza- 
rene, who was a prophet mighty 
n deed and word before God and 
all the people : w and how the 
chief priests and our rulers deliv 
ered him up to be condemned to 
death, and crucified him. 21 But 
hoped that it was he who 
should redeem Israel. Yea and 
resides all this, it is now the third 
day since these things came to 
Dass. 22 Moreover certain women 
of our company amazed us, hav- 
ng been early at the tomb ; ^ and 
when they found not his body, 
hey came, saying, that they had 
also seen a vision of angels, who 
said that he was alive. u And 
certain of them that were with us 
went to the tomb, and found it 
even so as the women had said :

but him they saw not. M And he 
said unto them, O foolish men, 
and slow of heart to believe * in 
all that the prophets have spoken ! 
26 Behooved it not the Christ to 
suffer these things, and to enter 
into his glory ? v And beginning 
from Moses and from all the 
prophets, he interpreted to them 
in all the scriptures the things 
concerning himself. ^ And they 
drew nigh unto the village, whither 
they were going : and he made as 
though he would go further. 
49 And they constrained him, say 
ing, Abide with us ; for it is to 
ward evening, and the day is now 
far spent. And he went in to 
abide with them. 3 And it came 
to pass, when he had sat down 
with them to meat, he took the 
* bread and blessed ; and breaking 
it he gave to them. 31 And their 
eyes were opened, and they knew 
him ; and he vanished out of their 
sight. 32 And they said one to 
another, Was not our heart burn 
ing within us, while he spake to 
us in the way, while he opened 
to us the scriptures ? ^ And they 
rose up that very hour, and re 
turned to Jerusalem, and found the 
eleven gathered together, and 
them that were with them, ^say 
ing, The Lord is risen indeed, and 
hath appeared to Simon. ^ And 
they rehearsed the things that hap 
pened in the way, and how he was 
known of them in the breaking of 
the bread.

^And as they spake these things, 
he himself stood in the midst of

be unto you. OT But they were 
terrified and affrighted, and sup 
posed that they had beheld a spirit. 
38 And he said unto them, Why 
are ye troubled ? and wherefore 
do questionings arise in your 
heart ? 39 See my hands and my 
feet, that it is I myself: handle 
me, and see ; for a spirit hath not 
flesh and bones, as ye behold me 
having. JO And when he had

The Appearance in Galilee 

XXVIII : 16-20. 

16 But the eleven disciples went 
into Galilee, unto the mountain 
where Jesus had appointed them. 
17 And when they saw him, they 
* worshipped him ; but some 
doubted. 18 And Jesus came to 
them and spake unto them, say 
ing, All authority hath been given 
unto me in heaven and on earth. 
19 Go ye therefore, and make dis 
ciples of all the nations, baptizing 
them in the name of the Father 
and of the Son and of the Holy 
Spirit : 20 teaching them to ob 
serve all things whatsoever I com 
manded you : and lo, I am with 
you * always, even unto * the end 
of the world. 



said this, he showed them his 
hands and his feet. 41 And while 
they still disbelieved for joy, and 
wondered, he said unto them, 
Have ye here anything to eat ? 
42 And they gave him a piece of a 
broiled fish*. ^And he took it, 
and ate before them. 

Final Address of the Risen 
Jesus. 

XXIV : 44-49. 

44 And he said unto them, These 
are my words which I spake unto 
you, while, I was yet with you, 
that all things must needs be ful 
filled, which are written in the 
law of Moses, and the prophets, 
and the psalms, concerning me. 
46 Then opened he their mind, 
that they might understand the 
scriptures; 46 and he said unto 
them, Thus it is written, that the 
Christ should suffer, and rise 
again from the dead the third 
day ; 47 and that repentance * and 
remission of sins should be preached 
in his name unto all the * nations, 
beginning from Jerusalem. 48 Ye 
are witnesses of these things. 
49 And behold, I send forth the 
promise of my Father upon you : 
but tarry ye in the city, until ye 
be clothed with power from on 
high.

Supplementary Conclusion 

XVI : 9-20. 

(The two oldest Greek manuscripts, 
and some other authorities, omit from 
ver. 9 to the end. Some other author 
ities have a different ending to the 
Gospel.) 

9 * Now when he was risen 
early on the first day of the week, 
he appeared first to Mary Magda 
lene, from whom he had cast out 
seven demons. 10 She went and 
told them that had been with him, 
as they mourned and wept. H And 
they, when they heard that he 
was alive, and had been seen of 
her, disbelieved. 

12 And after these things he 
was manifested in another form 
unto two of them, as they walked, 
on their way into the country. 
ls And they went away and told 
it unto the rest : neither believed 
they them. 

14 And afterward he was mani 
fested unto the eleven themselves 
as they sat at meat ; and he up 
braided them with their unbelief 
and hardness of heart, because 
they believed not them that had 
seen him after he was risen. 
18 And he said unto them, Go ye 
into all the world, and preach the 
* gospel to the whole creation.- ]6 He 
that believeth and is baptized shall 
be saved ; but he that disbelieveth 
shall be condemned. 17 And these 
signs shall accompany them that 
believe : in my name shall they 
cast out demons ; they shall speak 
with *new tongues ; 18 they shall 
take up serpents, and if they 
drink any deadly thing, it shall in 
no wise hurt them ; they shall lay

60 And he led them out until 
they were over against Bethany : 
and he lifted up his hands, and 
blessed them. cl And it came to 
pass, while "he blessed them, he 
parted from them, *and was car 
ried up into heaven. 5 2 And they 
* worshipped him, and returned to 
Jerusalem with great joy : ^and 
were continually in the temple,

recover. 

19 So then the Lord Jesus, after 
he had spoken unto them was re 
ceived up into heaven, and sat 
down at the right hand of God. 
20 And they went forth, and 
preached everywhere, the Lord 
working with them, and confirm 
ing the word by the signs that 
followed. Amen.
