He beginneth to preach.'.^

7 Jesus said unto him, It is written again,
""Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God.

8 Again, the devil taketh him up into an
exceeding high mountain, and sheweth him
all the kingdoms of the world, and the glory
of them;

9 And saith 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, sThou shalt
worship the Lord thy God, and him only
shalt thou serve.

11 Then the devil leaveth him, and be-
hold, '■angels came and ministered unto him-

12 IT'Now whenJesushad heard that John
was II cast into prison, he departed into Gali-
lee;

13 And leaving Nazareth, he came and
dwelt in Capernaum, which is upon the sea-
coast, in the borders of Zabulon and Neph-
thalim ;

14 That it might be fulfilled which was
spoken by Esaias the prophet, saying,

15 ''The land of Zabulon, and the land of
Nephthalim, hy the way of the sea, beyond
Jordan, Galilee of the Gentiles :

16 'The people which sat in darkness, saw
great light; and to them which sat in the re-
gion and shadow of death, light is sprung up.

17 H^From that time Jesus began to
preach, and to say, "Repent; for the king- »
dom of heaven is at hand.

18 IF" And Jesus, walking by the sea of
Galilee, saw two brethren, Simon p called
Peter, and Andrew his brother, casting a net
into the sea; for they were fishers.

19 And he saith unto them. Follow me,
and il will make you fishers of men.

20 'And. they straightway left their nets,
and followed him.

21 ^And going on from thence, he saw
other two brethren, James the son of Zebe-
dee, and John his brother, in a ship with
Zebedee their father, mending their nets :
and he called them.

22 And they immediately left the ship, and
their father, and followed him.

23 *|[ And Jesus went about all Galilee,
' teaching in their synagogues, and preaching
" the gospel of the kingdom, ^ and healing all
manner of sickness, and all manner of disease
among the people.

24 And his fame went throughout all
Syria : and they brought unto him all sick
people that were taken with divers diseases
and torments, and those which were pos-
sessed with devils, and those which were
lunatic, and those that had the palsy ; and
he healed them,

Chrisfs sermon in the mount.

25 yAnd there followed him great mul-
titudes of people from Galilee, and from
Decapolis, and from Jerusalem, and from
Judea, and from beyond Jordan.

CHAP. V.

1 Christ leginneth his sermon in the mount : 3 declaring
who are blessed, 13 loho are the salt of the earth, 14
the light of the woHd, the city on an hill. 15 The
candle : 17 that he came to fulfil the law. 21 What
it is to kill, 27 to commit adultery, 33 to swear : 38
exhorteth to suffer wrong, 44 to love even our enemies,
^8 and to labour after perfectness.

AND seeing the multitudes, "^he went up
into a mountain : and when he was
set, his disciples came unto him.

2 And he opened his mouth, and taught
them, saying,

3 ''Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs
is the kingdom of heaven.

4 ° Blessed are they that ipourn : for they
shall be comforted.

5 "1 Blessed are the meek : for ^they shall
inherit the earth.

6 Blessed are they which do hunger and
thirst after righteousness : *"for they shall be
filled.

7 Blessed are the merciful : fffor they shall
obtain mercy.

8 ''Blessed are the pure in heart: for 'they
shall see God.

9 Blessed are the peace-makers : for they
shall be called the children of God.

10 '^Blessed are they which are persecuted
for righteousness' sake : for theirs is the
kingdom of heaven.

11 'Blessed are ye when men shall revile
you, and persecute you, and shall say all
manner of " evil against you t falsely, for my
sake.

12 "Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for
great is your reward in heaven : for ° so per-
secuted they the prophets which were before
you.

13 IT Ye are the salt of the earth : p but if
the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall
it be salted 1 it is thenceforth good for no-
thing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden
under foot of men.

14 1 Ye are the hght of the world, A city
that is set on an hill cannot be hid.

15 Neither do men ■■ light a candle, and
put it under || a bushel, but on a candlestick :
aiid it giveth light unto all that are in the
house.

16 Let your light so shine before men,
' that they may see your good works, and
'glorify your Father which is in heaven.

17 il "Think not that I am come to destroy
the law, or the prophets : I am not come to
destroy, but to fulfil.

18 For verily I say unto you, '■''Till
heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle
shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be
fulfilled.

19 ^Whosoever therefore shall break one
of these least commandments, and shall teach
men so, he shall be called the least in the
kingdom of heaven : but whosoever shall.do,
and teach them, the same shall be called great
in the kingdom of heaven.

20 For I say unto you. That except your
righteousness shall exceed y the righteousness
of the scribes and Pharisees, ye shall in no
case enter into the kingdom of heaven.

21 HYe have heard that it was said ||by
them of old time, ''Thou shalt not kill; and
whosoever shall kill, shall be in danger of the
judgment :

22 But I say unto you. That ^ whosoever
is angry with his brother without a cause,
shall be in danger of the judgment: and
whosoever shall say to his brother, [[""Raca,
shall be in danger of the council : but whoso-
ever shall say, Thou fool, shall be in danger
of hell-fire.

23 Therefore, <=if thou bring thy gift to the
altar, and there rememberest 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.

25 ^ Agree with thine adversary quickly,
''while thou art in the way with him; lest at
any time the adversary deliver thee to the
judge, and the judge deliver thee to the
officer, and thou be cast into prison.

26 Verily I say unto thee. Thou shalt by
no means come out thence, till thou hast paid
the uttermost farthing.

27 IT Ye have heard that it was said by
them of old time, s Thou shalt not commit
adultery :

28 But I say unto you. That whosoever
'' looketh on a woman to lust after her, hath
committed adultery with her already in his
heart.

29 ' And if thy right eye || offend thee,
■'pluck it out, and cast it from thee : for it is
profitable for thee that one of thy members
should perish, and not that thy whole body
should be cast into hell.

30 And if thy right hand offend thee, cut
it off", and cast it from thee : for it is profit-
able for thee that one of thy members should
perish, and not that thy whole body should
be cast into hell.

31 It hath been said, 'Whosoever shall
put away his wife, let him give her a writing
of divorcement:

tery : and whosoever shall marry her that is
divorced,' committeth adultery.

33 II Again, ye have heard that "it hath
been said by them of old time, °Thou shalt
not forswear thyself, but p shalt perform unto
the Lord thine oaths :

34 But I say unto you, i Swear not at
all : neither by heaven ; for it is ■■ God's
throne :

35 Nor by the earth ; for it is his foot-

36 Neither shalt thou swear by thy head,

Of almsgiving and prayer.

TAKE heed that ye do not your || alms
beforemen, tobe seenof them: other-
wise ye have no reward || of your Father
which is in heaven.

2 Therefore, ''when thou doest <7jme alms,
] do not sound a trumpet before thee, as the
lypocrites do, in the synagogues, and in the
streets, that they may have glory of men.
Verily I say unto you, They have their re-
ward.

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 which seeth in secret, himself
^ shall reward thee .openly.

5 IT And when thou prayest, thou shalt not
be as the hypocrites are : for they love to
pray standing in the synagogues, and in the
corners of the streets, that they may be seen
of men. Verily I say unto you. They have
their reward.

6 But thou, when thou prayest, •= enter into
thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door,
pray to thy Father which is in secret; and
thy Father, which seeth in secret, shall re-
ward thee openly.

7 But when ye pray, ^use not vain repeti-
tions, as the heathen do : * for they think
that they shall be heard for their much
speaking.

8 Be not ye therefore like unto them : for
your Father knoweth what things ye have
need of before ye ask him.

9 After this manner therefore pray ye :
'"Our Father which art in heaven. Hallowed
be thy name.

10 Thy kingdom come, s Thy will be done
in earth ^ as it is in heaven.

11 Give us this day our 'daily bread.

12 And ''forgive us our debts, as we for-
give our debtors.

13 'And lead us not into temptation, but
'"deliver us from evil. "For thine is the
kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for
ever. Amen.

14 "For if ye forgive men their tres-
passes, your heavenly Father will also for-
give you :

15 But Pif ye forgive not men their tres-
passes, neither will your Father forgive your
trespasses.

16 IT Moreover, iwhen ye fast, be not as
the hypocrites, of a sad countenance: for
they disfigure their faces, that they may ap-
pear unto men to fast. Verily I say unto you.
They have their reward.

17 But thou, when thou fastest, ■■ anoint
thine head, and w^ashthy face ;

18 That thou appear not unto men, to fast,
but unto thy Father, which is in secret : and

801



Where our treasure is to be laid up.

a

thy Father, which seeth in secret, shall reward
^the6 openly.

19 "lI'Lay not up for yourselves treasures
upon earth, where moth and rust doth cor-
rupt, and where thieves break through and
steal :

20 'But lay up for yourselves treasures in
heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth
corrupt, and where thieves do not break
through nor steal.

21 For where your treasure is, there will
your heart be also.

22 " The light of the body is the eye : if
therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body
shall be full of light.

23 But if thine eye be evil, thy whole body
shall be full of darkness. If therefore the
light that is in thee be darkness, how great
is that darkness !

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

25 Therefore I say unto you, '^Take no
thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or
what ye shall drink ; nor yet for your body,
what ye shall put on. Is not the life more
than meat, and the body than raiment ?

26 ^Behold the fowls of the air : for they
sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather
into barns ; yet your heavenly Father feed-
eth them. Are ye not much better than
they?

27 Which of you by taking thought can
add one cubit unto his stature ?

28 And why take ye thought for raiment ?
Consider the lilies of the field how they
grow ; they toil not, neither do they spin ;

29 And yet I say unto you. That even
Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed
like one of these.

30 Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass
of the field, which to-day is, and to-morrow
is cast into the oven, shall he not much more
clothe you, O ye of little faith ?

31 Therefore take no thought, 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
knbweth that ye have need of all these
things.

33 But ''seek ye first the kingdom of God,
and his righteousness, and all these things
shall be added unto you.

34 Take therefore no thought for the mor-
row : for the morrow shall take thought for
the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day
is the evil thereof.

Christ reproveth rash judgment.
CHAP. VII.

1 Christ ending his sermon in the movnt, reproveth rash
judgment, 6 forbiddeth to cast holy things to dogs, 7
exhorteth to prayer, 13 to enter in at the^trait gate,
15 to beware of false prophets, 21 not to be hearers;
but doers of the word : 24 like houses builded on
a rock, 26 and not on the sand.

JUDGE ^not, that ye be not judged.
2 For with what judgment ye judge,
ye shall be judged : '' and with what mea-
sure ye mete, it shall be measured to you
again.

3 "And vi'hy beholdest 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 pull out the mote out of thine eye ;
and behold, a beam is in thine own eye ?

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

6 U "J Give not that which is holy unto the
dogs, neither cast ye your pearls before swine,
lest they trample them under their feet, and
turn again and rend you.

7 II "Ask, and it shall be given you ; seek,
and ye shfiU find; knock, and it shall be
opened unto you :

8 For ^ every one that asketh, receiveth ;
and he that seeketh, findeth ; and to him that
knocketh, it shall be opened.

9 sOr what man is there of you, whom if
his son ask bread, will he give him a stone?

10 Or if he ask a fish, will he 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 which is in heaven
give good things to them that ask him ?

12 Therefore all things 'whatsoever ye
would that men should do to you, do ye
even so to them: for ''this is the law and the
prophets.

13 1' Enter ye in at the strait gate; for
wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that
leadeth to destruction, and many there be
which go in thereat:

-r 14 II Because, strait is the gate, and narrow
is the way, which leadeth unto hfe, and feAV
there be that find it.

3,(^15 IT -"Beware of false prophets, "which
come to you in sheep's clothing, buf inward-
ly they are "ravening wolves.
. 16 pYe shall know them by their fruits:
<)Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of
thistles ? ^

17 Even so "■ every good tree bringeth forth'
good fruit ; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth '^
evil fruit.

18 A good tree cannot bring forth evil

802



Be not hearers hut doers of the word.

fruit, neither can a corrupt ttee bring forth
good fruit.

19 'Every tree that bringeth not forth
good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the
fire.

20 Wherefore/by their fruits ye shall know
them.

21 IT Not every one that saith unto me,
'Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom
of heaven ; but he that doeth the will of my
Father which is in heaven.

22 Many will say to me in that day. Lord,
Lord, have we "not prophesied in thy name ?
and in thy name have cast out devils ? and in
thy name done many wonderful works ?

23 And ^then will I profess unto them, I
never knew you : y depart from me, ye that
work iniquity.

24 IT Therefore, ^ whosoever heareth these
sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken
him unto a wise man, which built his house
upon a rock :

25 And the rain descended, and the floods
came, and the winds blew, and beat upon
that liouse ; and it fell not : for it was found-
ed upon a rock.

26 And every one that heareth these say-
ings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be
likened unto a foolish man, which built his

' house upon the sand :

27 And the rain descended, and the floods
came, and the winds blew, and beat upon
that house ; and it fell : and great was the
fall of it.

28 And it came to pass when Jesus had
ended these sayings, ^the people were asto-
nished at his doctrine.

29 '■For he taught them as one having au-
thority, and not as the scribes.

CHAP. vm.

2 Christ cleanseth the leper, 5healeth the centurion's
servant, 14 Peter's mother-in-law, 16 and many other
diseased : 18 sheweth how he is to he followed : 23 still-
eth the tempest on the sea, 28 driveth the devils out of
two men possessed, 31 and suffer eth them to go into the
swine.

WHEN he was come down from the
mountain, great multitudes followed
him.

2 ^And behold, there came a leper and
worshipped him, saying, Lord, if thou wilt,
thou canst make me clean.

3 And Jesus put forth his hand, and touch-
ed him, saying, I will ; be thou clean. And
immediately his leprosy was cleansed.

4 And Jesus saith unto him, '' See thou
tell no man ; but go thy way, shew thyself to
the priest, and offer the gift that •= Moses
commanded, for a testimony unto them.
