At that time certain Chakleans came near, and accused the
Jews. They spake and said to the king Nebuchadnezzar, O king,
live forever. Thou, O king, hast made a decree, that every man
that shall hear the sound of the cornet, flute, harp, sackbut, psaltery,
and dulcimer, and all kinds of music, shall fall down and worship
the golden image: And whoso falleth not down and worshippeth,
that he should be cast into the midst of a burning fiery furnace.
There are certain Jews whom tlmu hast set over the aff"airs of the
province of Babylon, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego ; these
men, king, have not regarded thee : they serve not thy gods, nor
worship the golden image which thou hast set up.

Then Nebuchadnezzar in his rage and fury commanded to
bring Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego. Then they brought
these men before the king. Nebuchadnezzar spake and said unto
them. Is it true, O Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego, do not ye
serve my gods, nor worship the golden image which I have set up ?
Now if ye be ready that at what time ye hear the sound of the
cornet, flute, harp, sackbut, psaltery, and dulcimer, and all kinds
of music, ye fall down and worship the image which I have made ;
well : but if ye worship not, ye shall be cast the same hour into
the midst of a burning fierj' furnace ; and who is that God that
shall deliver you out of my hands ?

Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego, answered and said to the
king, O Nebuchadnezzar, we are not careful to answer thee in this

matter. M it bc 00, our CJ3ob tnliom roc scrnc is able to bc-
iivcv us from ll)e burning ticrji furnace, anb l)e roill bcliucr

thee, O king, that we will not serve thy gods, nor worship the
golden image which thou hast set up.

The word of the Lord came unto Jonah the second time, sa}^-
ing, Arise, go unto Nineveh, that great city, and preach unto it
the preaching that I bid thee.

So Jonah arose, and went unto Nineveh, according to the word
of the Lord. Now Nineveh was an exceeding great city of three
days' journey. And Jonah began to enter into the city a day's
journey, and he cried, and said, Yet forty days, and Nineveh shall
be overthrown.

So the people of Nineveh belieucb (f5ob, imd proclaimed a
fast, and put on sackcloth, from the greatest of them even to the
least of them. For word came unto the king of Nineveh, and he
arose from his throne, and he laid his robe from him, and covered
him with sackcloth, and sat in ashes. And he caused it to be pro-
claimed and published through Nineveh, by the decree of the king
and his nobles, saying. Let neither man nor beast, herd nor flock,
taste anything : let them not feed, nor drink water : but let man

and beast be covered with sackcloth, and cry mightily unto God :
yea, let them turn every one from his evil way, and from the vio-
lence that is in their hands. Who can tell if God Avill turn and
repent, and turn away from his fierce anger, that we perish not ?

I will look unto the Lord ; I will wait for the God of my sal-
vation ; my God will hear me.

I have sinned against him, until he plead ray cause, and execute

behold his righteousness.

And he entered again into the synagogue; and there was a man
there toljicl) i)Ob a tDitl)ereb l)anb. And they watched him,
whether he would heal him on the sabbath-day ; that they might
accuse him.

And he saith unto the man whicli had the withered hand.
Stand forth. And he saith unto them. Is it lawful to do good on
the sabbath-days, or to do evil ? to save life, or to kill ? but they
held their peace. And when he had looked round about on them
with anger, being grieved for the hardness of their hearts, he saitli
unto the man. Stretch forth thine hand, ^nb l)e 6trctcl)eb it
out : and his hand was restored whole as the other.

Wlion he was come down from the mountain, great multi-
tudes followed him. And behold, there came a leper and wor-

And when Jesus was entered into Capernaum, there came
unto him a centurion, beseeching hiin, and saying, Lord, my ser-
vant lieth at home sick of the palsy, grievously tormented. And
Jesus saith unto him, I will come and heal him. The centurion
answered and said. Lord, I am not worthy that thou shouldest
come under my roof: but spcali tl)C UJOrb onln, aub mil scr-
uant sljall be ijealeb. For I am u man under authority, having
soldiers under me : and I say to this man. Go, and he goeth ; and
to another. Come, and he cometh ; and to my servant. Do this,
and he doeth it. When Jesus heard it, he marvelled, and said to
them that followed. Verily I say unto you, I have not found so
great faith, no, not in Israel.

And he said unto his disciples, Therefore I say unto you,
(J^ake no tl)ongl)t for nonr life, roliat rte sijall eat; ncitl)er for

tl)e bobn, toljaf ne 6l)aTl |]at on. The life is more than meat, and
the body is more than raiment. Consider the ravens : for they
neither sow nor reap : which neither have store-house, nor barn ;
and God fecdeth them. How much more are ye better than the
fowls ? And which of you with taking thought can add to his
stature one cubit? If ye then be not able to do that thing which
is least, why take ye thought for the rest ? Consider the lilies how
they grow : they toil not, they spin not ; and yet I say unto you,
that Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.
If then God so clothe the grass, which is to-day in the field, and to-
morrow is cast into the oven ; how much more will he clothe you,
O ye of little faith ? And seek not ye what ye shall eat, or what

ye shall drink, ncitl)er be ne of boubtfnl minb.

The same day, when the even was come, he saith unto them.
Let us pass over vmto the other side. And when they had sent
away the multitude, they took him even as he was in the ship.
And there were also with him other little ships. And there arose
a great storm of wind, and the waves beat into the ship, so that it
was now full. And he was in the hinder j^art of the ship, asleep
on a pillow : and they awake him, and say unto him, Master, carest
thou not that we perish ? And he arose, and rebuked the wind,
and said unto the sea. Peace, be still. And the wind ceased, and
there was a great calm. And he said unto them, il3l)n are ge SO

fearful? Ijoro is it tl)at nc Ijauc no faitl) ?

And when Jesus departed thence, two blind men followed him,
crying, and saying, (|[bou SOU of Dauib, have mercy on us.

And Jesus constrained his disciples to get into a ship, and to
go before him unto the other side, while he .sent the multitudes
away. And when he had sent the multitudes away, he went up
into a mountain apart to pray : and when the evening was come,
he was there alone. But the ship was now in the midst of the sea,
tossed with waves: for the wind was contrary. And in the fourth
watch of the night Jesus went unto them, walking on the sea. And
when the disciples saw him walking on the sea, they were troubled,
saying, It is a spirit ; and they cried out for fear. But straightway
Jesus spake unto them, saying. Be of good cheer; it is I ; be not
afraid. And Peter answered hira and said. Lord, if it be thou, bid
me come unto thee on the water. And he said. Come. And when
Peter was come down out of the ship, he walked on the water, to
go to Jesus. Cut tDl]cn l)c Bam tijc toinb boisterous, be toas

him, and said unto him, tl)OU of little faitb. wherefore didst
thou doubt ?

And Jesus said unto them, I am the broad of life : be i\)Clt

shall never thirst. But I said unto you, That ye also have seen
me, anb belieue not.

'I'liis is tiie bread which Cometh down from heaven, tb^t a

caine down from heaven : if any man eat of this bread, he shall
live forever : and the bread that I will give is my flesh, Avhich I
will give for the life of the world.

The Jews therefore strove among themselves, saying. How can
this man give us his flesh to eat ? Then Jesus said unto them,
Verily, verily, I say unto you. Except ye eat the flesh of the Son of
man, and drink his blood, ye have no life in you. Whoso eateth
my flesh, and drinketh my blood, hath eternal life ; and 1 will
raise him up at the last day. For my flesh is meat indeed, and my
blood is drink indeed, lie that eateth my flesh, ami driidceth my
blood, dwelleth in me, and I in him. As the living Father hatli
sent me, and I live by the Father : so he that eatetii me, even he
shall live by me. This is that bread which came down from
heaven : not as your fathers did eat manna, and are dead : he tb^t

Jesus departed into the coasts of Tyre and Sidon. And
behold, a woman of Canaan came out of the .same coasts,
and cried unto him, saying, Uave mercy on me, O Lord, ll)Ott



SOU of Dnuib ; ruy daughter is grievously vexed witli a devil.
13iit he answered her not a word. And his disciples came and
besought him, saying, Send her away ; for she crieth after us.
But he answered and said, I am not sent but unto the lost sheep
of the house of Israel. Tlien came she and worshipped him, say-
ing, Lord, help me. But he answered and said. It is not meet to
take the children's bread and to cast it to doa;s. And she said,
Truth, Lord : yet the dogs eat of the crumbs which fall fi-om their
master's table. Then Jesus answered and said unto her, O woman,
great is thy faith : be it unto thee even as thou wilt. And her
daughter was made whole from that very hour.

The Pharisees also with the Sadducees came, and tempting-
desired him that he would shew them a sign from heaven. He
answered and said unto them. When it is evening, ye say. It will
be fair weather: for the sky is red. And in the morning. It
will be foul weather to-day : for the sky is red and lowering. O

Then said Jesus to those Jews tDl)icl) bclicucD Olt l)im, If ye

God. Yet ye have not known him ; but I know him : and if I
should say, I know him not, I shall be a liar Hke unto you : but I

Jesus heard that they had cast him out : [the blind man whom
he had cured] and when he had found him, he said unto him.
Dost thou believe on the Sou of God ? He answered and said.
Who is he, Lord, that I might believe on him ? And Jesus said
unto him, Thou hast both seen him, and it is he that talketh with

thee. And he said, Corb, 3 bcUcoe. '^u'b l)c tuorsljippeb

And Jesus stood still, and called them, and said. What will

touched their eyes : and immediately their eyes received sight, and
they followed him.

The angel answered and said unto the women. Fear not ye :
for I know that ye seek Jesus, which was crucified. He is not
here : for he is risen, as he said. Come, see the place where the
Lord lay. And go quickly, and tell his disciples, that he is risen
from the dead, and behold, he goeth before you into Galilee ; there
shall ye see him : lo, I have told you.

And they departed quickly from the sepulchre ujiti) feur H1\b

great jon ; onb bib run to bring Ijis bisciples uiorb. And as

they wont to tell his disciples, behold, Jesus met thein, saying. All
hail. And they came, and held him by the feet, and worshipped
him. Then said Jesus unto them. Be not afraid : go tell my
brethren, that they go into Galilee, and there shall they see me.

When Jesus was risen early, the first day of the week, he ap-
peared first to Mary Magdalene, out of whom he had cast seven
devils. And she went and told them that had been with him, as



they mourned and wept. And they, when they had heard that he
was alive, and had been seen of her, believed not.

After that, he appeared in another form unto two of them, as
they walked, and went into the country. And they went and told
it unto the residue : neither believed they them.

Thomas, one of the twelve, called Didymus, was not with

the print of the nails, and thrust my hand into his side, I will not

And after eight days again his disciples were within, and
Thomas with them : then came Jesus, the doors being shut, and
stood in the midst, and said, Peace be unto you. Then saith he to
Thomas, Reach hither thy finger, and behold my hands ; and reach
hither thy hand, and thrust it into my side ; and be not faithless,
but believing. And Thomas answered and said unto him. My
