holiness of the Lord which he || loved, "and
hath married the daughter of a strange god.

12 The Lord will cut off the man that
doeth this, || the master and the scholar, out
of the tabernacles of Jacob, Pand him that
ofFereth an offering unto the Lord of hosts.

13 And this have ye done again, cover-
ing the -altar of the Lord with tears, with
weeping, and with crying out, insomuch
that he regardeth not the offering any more,
or receiveth it with good will at your hand.

14T[Yet ye say. Wherefore? Because the
Lord hath been witness between thee and
1 the wife of thy youth, against M'hom thou
hast dealt treacherously : ""yet is she thy com-
panion, and the wife of thy covenant.

15 And 'did not he make one? Yet had
he the || residue of the Spirit. And where-
fore one? That he might seek f'a godly
seed. Therefore take heed to your spirit,
and let none deal || treacherously against the
wife of his youth.

16 For "the Lord, the God of Israel,
saith, II that he hateth t putting away : for one
covereth violence with his garment, saith
the Lord of hosts : therefore take heed to
your spirit, that ye deal not treacherously.

17 11^ Ye have wearied the Lord with
your words. Yet ye say. Wherein have we
wearied him? When ye say, Every one
that doeth evil is good in the sight of the
Lord, and he delighteth in them; or,
Wjiere is the God of judgment?

of Levi, and purge them as gold and silver,
that they may 'offer unto the Lord an
offering in' righteousness.

4 Then ''shall the offering of Judah and
Jerusalem be pleasant unto the Lord, as in
the days of old, and as in || former years.

5 And I will come near to you to judg-
ment : and I will be a swift witness against
the sorcerers, and against the adulterers, 'and
against false swearers, and against those that
II oppress the hirehng in his wages, the widow,
and the fatherless, and that turn aside the
stranger from his right, and fear not me,
saith the Lord of hosts.

6 For I am the Lord, ""I change not;
"therefore ye sons of Jacob are not con-
sumed.

7 H Even from the days of ° your fathers
ye are gone away from mine ordinances,
and have not kept them, p Return unto
me, and I will return unto you, saifh the
Lord of hosts. iBut ye said. Wherein shall
we return ?

8 U Will a man rob God ? Yet ye have
robbed me. But ye say, Wherein have we
robbed thee? 'In tithes and offerings.

9 Ye are cursed with a curse : for ye have
robbed me, even this whole nation.

10 'Bring ye all the tithes into 'the
storehouse, that there may be meat in mine
house, and prove me now herewith, saith the
Lord of hosts, if I will not open you the
"windows of heaven, and f^pour you out
a blessing, that there shall not be room
enough to receive it.

1 1 And I will rebuke y the devourer for
your sakes, and he shall not t destroy the
fruits of your ground; neither shall your
vine cast her fruit before the time in the
field, saith the Lord of hosts.

12 And all nations shall call you blessed:
for ye shall be ^a dehghtsome land, saith
the Lord of hosts.

13 H* Your words have been stout against
me, saith the Lord. Yet ye say, What
have we spoken so much against thee ?

14 ''Ye have said. It is vain to serve God :
and what profit is it that we have kept t his
ordinance, and that we have walked t mourn-
fully before the Lord of hosts ?

15 And now "^we call the proud happy;
yea, they that work wickedness fare set
up; yea, they that^ ■'tempt God are even
delivered.

16 IT Then they «that feared the Lord
*■ spake often one to another : and the Lord
hearkened, and heard it: and sa book of-
remembrance was written before him for
them that fpared the Lord, and that thought
upon his name.

Q-od's judgr^ent on the wicked.

17 Ajul ■'they shall be mine, saith the
Lord of hosts, in that day when I make
up my II ' jewels ; and '' I will spare them,
as a man spareth his own son that servetli
him.

18 'Then shall ye return and discern be-
tween the righteous and the wicked, between
him that serveth God and him that serveth
him not.

CHAP. IV.

1 God's judgment on the wicked, 2 and his blessing on
the good. 4 He exhorteth to the study of the law, 5
and telleth of Elijah's coming and office.

FOR behold, " the day cometh, that shall
burn as an oven ; and all '' the proud,
yea, and all that do wickedly, shall be
"stubble : and the day that cometh shall burn
them up, saith the Lord of hosts, that it
shall "^ leave them neither root nor branch.

17 So all the generations from Abraham
to David are fourteen generations ; and from
David until the carrying away into Babylon
are fourteen generations ; and from the carry-
ing away into Babylon unto Christ are four-
teen generations.

18 IF Now the "^birth of Jesus Christ was
on this wise : When as his mother Mary
was espoused to Joseph, before they came
together, she was found with child " of the
Holy Ghost.

19 Then Joseph her husband, being a just
man, and not willing ' to make her a pub-
lic example, Avas minded to put her away
privily.

20 But while he thought on these things,
behold, the angel of the Lord appeared
unto him in a dream, saying, Joseph, thou
son of David, fear not to take unto thee
Mary thy wife : " for that which is f con-
ceived in her is of the Holy Ghost.

21 ^ And she shall bring forth a son, and
thou shalt call his name || JESUS : for y ho
shall save his people from their sins.

22 Now all this was done, that it might
be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord
by the prophet, saying,

23 ^ Behold, a virgin shall be with child,
and shall bring forth a son, and || they shall
call his name Emmanuel, which being in-
terpreted is, God with us.

24 Then Joseph, being raised from sleep,
did as the angel of the Lord had bidden
him, and took unto him his wife :

25 And knew her not till she had brought
forth ■'her first-born son : and he called his
name JESUS.

1 The wise men out of the, east are directed to Christ by

23 Christ is brought back agai^i into Galilee to

NOW when - Jesus was born in Beth- "

the king, behold, there came wise men ''from
the east to Jerusalem,

2 Saying, "Where is he that is born King

6i.The wise men worship Christ.

of the Jews ? for we have seen •■ his star in
the east, and are come to worship him.

3 When Herod the king had heard
these things, he was troubled, and all Jeru-
salem with him.

4 And when he had gathered all ^the
chief priests and ''scribes of the people to-
gether, she demanded of them where Christ
should be born.

5 And they said unto him, In Bethlehem
of Judea : for thus it is written by the pro-
phet,

6 •> And thou Bethlehem, in the land of
Juda, art not the least among the princes
of Juda : for but of thee shall come a
Governor, ' that shall || rule my people Is-
rael.

7 Then Herod, when he had privily called
the wise men, inquired of thgm diligently
what time the star appeared.

8 And he sent them to Bethlehem, and
said, Go, and search diligently for the young
child ; and when ye have found him, bring
me word again, that I may come and worship
him also.

9 When they had heard the king, they
departed ; and lo, the star, which tl\ey saw
in the east, went before them, till it came
and stood over where the young child was.

10 When they saw the star, they rejoiced
with exceeding great joy.

11 TI And when they were come into the
house, they saw the young child with Ma-
ry his mother, and fell down, and wor-
shipped him : and when they had open-
ed their treasures, ^ they || presented un-
to him gifts ; gold, 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 And when they were departed, be-
hold, the angel of the Lord appeareth to
Joseph in a dream, saying. Arise, and take
the young child and his mother, and flee
into Egypt, and be thou there until I bring
thee word : for Herod will seek the young
child to destroy him.

14 When he arose, he took the young
child and his mother by night, and departed
into Egypt :

15 And was there until the death of He-
rod : that it might be fulfilled which was
spoken of the Lord by the prophet, saying,
•"Out of Egypt have I called my Son.

/ 16 IT Then Herod, when he saw that he
was mocked of the wise men, was exceeding
wroth, and sent forth, and slew all the chil-
dren that were in Bethlehem, and in all the

coasts thereof, from two years old and under,
according to the time which he had diligently
inquired of the wise men.

17 Then was fulfilled that which was
spoken by "Jeremy the prophet, saying,

18 In Rama was there a voice heard, la-
mentation, and weeping, and great mourn-
ing, Rachel weeping for her children, and
would not be comforted, because they are
not.

19 IT But when Herod was dead, behold,
an angel of the Lord appeareth in a dream
to Joseph in Egypt,

20 Saying, Arise, and take the young child
and his mother, and go into the land of Is-
rael: for they are dead which 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.

22 But when he heard that Archelaus
did reign in Judea in the room of his -fa-
ther Herod, he was afraid to go thither :
notwithstanding, being warned of God in
a dream, he turned aside ° into the parts of
Galilee :

23 And he came and dwelt in a city
called P Nazareth : that it might be fulfilled
'which was spoken by the prophets. He
shall be called a Nazarene.

1 John preacheth : his office : life, and baptism ; 7 he
reprehendeth the Pharisees, 13 ajid laptizeth Christ
i?i Jorda7i.

IN those days came -John the Baptist,
preaching ''in the wilderness of Judea,

2 And saying. Repent ye ; for " the king-
dom of heaven is at hand.

3 For this is he that was spoken of by the
prophet Esaias, saying, <^ The voice of one
crying in the wilderness, <= Prepare ye the
way of the Lord, make his paths straight.

4 And ""the same John shad his raiment
of camel's hair, and a leathern girdle about
his loins ; and his meat was ^ locusts and
'wild honey.

5 ^ Then went out to him Jerusalem,
and all Judea, and all the region round
about Jordan,

6 ' And were baptized of him in Jordan,
confessing their sins.

7 IT But when he saw many of the Pha-
risees and Sadducees come to his baptism,
he said unto them, '" O generation of vipers,
who hath warned you to flee from "the wrath
to come?

8 Bring forth therefore fruits [| meet for
repentance :

9 And think not to say within yourselves,

Christ is baptized in Jordan.

» 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 now also the axe is laid unto the
root of the trees: p therefore every tree which
bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down,
and cast into the fire.

11 1 1 indeed baptize you with water unto
repentance : but he that cometh after me is
mightier than I, whose shoes I am not worthy
to bear: 'he shall baptize you with the Holy
Ghost, and with fire :

12 ^ Whose fan is in his hand, and he will
thoroughly purge his floor, and gather his
wheat into the garner ; but he will ' burn up
the chaff with unquenchable fire.

13 IT "Then cometh Jesus ^from Galilee
to Jordan unto John, to be baptized of him.

14 But John forbade him, saying, I have
need to be baptized of thee, and comest thou
to me?

15 And Jesus answering said unto him,
Suffer it to he so now : for thus it becometh
us to fulfil all righteousness. Then he suf-
fered him.

. 16 ^And Jesus, when he was baptized
went up straightway out of the water : and
lo, the heavens were opened unto him, and
he saw ^the Spirit of God descending like a
dove, and lighting upon him:

17 "And To, a voice from heaven, saying,
•"This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well
pleased.

1 Christ Jastetk, and is tempted. 1 1 The angels min-
ister unto him. 13 He dwelleth in Capernaum, 17
beginneth to preach, 18 calleth Peter, and Andrew^,
21 James, and John, 23 and healeth all the dis-
eased.

THEN was "Jesus led up of ''the Spirit
into the wilderness to be tempted of the
devil.

2 And when hp had fasted forty days and
forty nights, he was afterward an hungered.

3 And when the tempter came to him, he
said. If thou be the Son of God, command
that these stones be made bread.

4 But he answered and said. It is written,
■= Man shall not live by bread alone, but by
every word that proceedeth out of the mouth
of God.

5 Then the devil taketh him up ''into the
holy city, and setteth him on a pinnacle of
the temple,

6 And saith unto him. If thou be the Son
of God, cast thyself down, for it is written,
«He shall give his angels charge concerning
thee : and in their hands they shall bear thee
up, lest at any time thou dash thy foot against
a stone.
