CHAP. Vin. Christ healeth the centurion!s servant, ^c.

Capernaum, there came unto him a centu-
rion, beseeching him,

6 And saying. Lord, my servant lieth at
home sick of the palsy, grievously tormented.

7 And Jesus saith unto him, I will come
and heal him.

8 The centurion answered and said. Lord,
« I am not worthy that thou shouldest come
under my roof : but •" speak the wprd only,
and my servant shall be healed.

9 For I am a man under authority, havmg
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.

10 When Jesus heard it, he marvelled,
and said to them that followed. Verily I say
unto you, I have not found so great faith,
no, not in Israel.

11 And I say unto you. That emany shall
come from the east and west, and shalf sit
down with Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob,
in the kingdom of heaven :

12 But ""the children of the kingdom
' shall be cast out into outer darkness : there
shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

13 And Jesus said unto the centurion. Go
thy way ; and as thou hast believed, so be it
done unto thee. And his-servant was healed
in the self-same hour.

14 IT ■'And when JeSus was come into
Peter's house, he saw 'his wife's mother laid,
and sick of a fever.

15 And he touched her hand, and the fever
left her: and she arose, and ministered unto
them.

16 IF "When the even was come, they,
brought unto him many that were possessed
with devils : and he cast out the spirits
with his word, and healed all that were
sick;

17 That it might be fulfilled which was
spoken by Esaias the prophet, saying, "Him-
self took our infirmities, and bare our sick-
nesses.

18 1" Now when Jesus saw great multitudes
about him, he gave commandment to depart
unto the other side.

19 °And a certain scribe came, and said
unto him, Master, I will follow thee whither-
soever thou goest.

20 And Jesus saith unto him. The foxes
have holes, and the birds of the air have
nests ; but the Son of man hath not where
to lay his head.

21 P And another of his disciples said unto
him. Lord, 1 suffer me first to go and bury my
father.

22 But Jesus said unto him, Follow me ;
and let the dead bury their dead.

Christ stilkth the tempest, Sfc.



S. MATTHEW.



He eateth with publicans.



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

24 ■■ And behold, there arose a great tem-
pest in the sea, insomuch that the ship was
covered with the waves: but he was asleep.

25 And his disciples came to him, and
awoke him, . saying. Lord, save us : we
perish.

26 And he saith unto them. Why are ye
fearful, O ye of little faith ? Then = he atose,
and rebuked the winds and the sea ; and there
was a great calm.

27 But the men marvelled, saying, What
manner of man is this, that even the winds
and the sea obey him !

j- 28 H 'And when he was come to the other
side, into the country of the Gergesenes, there
met him two possessed with devils, coming
out of the tombs, exceeding fierce, so that
no man might pass by that way.

S9 And behold, they cried out, saying,
What have we to do with thee, Jesus, thou
Son of God? art thou come hither to torment
us before the time?

30 And there was a good way ofi" from
them an herd of many swine, feeding.

31 So the devils besought him, saying. If
thou cast us out, suffer us to go away into
the herd of swine,*

32 And he said unto them. Go. And
when they were come out, they went into the
herd of swine : and behold, the whole herd
of swine ran violently down a steep place into
the sea, and perished in the waters.

33 And they that kept them, fled, and
went their ways into the city, and told every

-thing; and what was befallen to the possessed
of the devils.

34 And behold, the whole city came out
to meet Jesus : and when they saw him,
" they besought Mm that he would depart
out of their coasts.

^ CHAP. IX.

2 Christ curing one sick of the palsy, 9 calleth Matthew
from the receipt of custom, 10 eateth with publicans
and sinners, 14 defendeth his disciples for not fasting,
20 cureth the bloody issue, 23 raiseth from death
Jairus' daughter, 27 giveth sight to two blind men,
32 healeth a dumb 7nan possessed of a devil, 36 a7id

AND he entered into a ship, and passed
over, ''and came into his 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 be
forgiven thee.

3 And behold, certain of the scribes said
within themselves. This mora blasphemeth. -

4 And Jesus, "^ knowing their thoughts.

said, Wherefore
hearts ?

5 For whether is easier to say. Thy sins
be forgiven thee ; or to say, Arise, and walk ?

6 But that ye may know that the Son of
man hath power on earth to forgive sins,
rtnea saith he to the sick of the palsy,)
Arise, take up thy bed, and go unto thine
house.

7 And he arose, and departed to his
house.

8 But when the multitude saw it, they
marvelled, and glorified God, which had
given such power unto men. ^

9 1[« And as Jesus passed forth from thence,
he saw a man named Matthew, sitting at
the receipt of custom : and he saith unto him.
Follow me. And he arose, and followed
him.

10 H '"And it came to pass, as Jesus sat at
meat in the house, behold, many publicans
and sinners came and sat down with him and
his disciples.

11 And when the Pharisees saw it, they
said unto his disciples. Why eateth your
Master with s publicans and "^ sinners?

12 But when Jesus heard that, he said
unto them. They that be whole need not a
physician, but they that are sick.

13 But go ye and learn what that mean-
eth, ' I will have mercy, and not sacrifice :
for I am not come to call the righteous, ''but
sinners to repentance.

14 IF Then came to him the disciples of
John, saying, 'Why do we and the Pharisees
fast oft, but thy disciples fast not?

15 And Jesus said unto them. Can ""the
children of the bride-chamber mourn, as long
as the bridegroom is with them ? but the
days will come, when the bridegroom shall
be taken from them, and " then shall they
fast.

16 No man putteth a piece of || new cloth
unto an old garment : for that which is put in
to fill it up, taketh from the garment, and the
rent is made worse.

17 Neither do men put new wine mto old
bottles : else the bottles break, and the wine
runneth out, and the bottles perish : but they
put new wine into new bottles, and both are
preserved.

18 H^While he spake these things unto
them, behold, there came a certain ruler, and
worshipped him, saying. My daughter is even
now dead : but come and lay thy hand upon
her, and she shall live.

19 And Jesus arose, and followed him, and
so did his disciples.

20 IT (P And behold, a woman which was
diseased with an issue of blood twelve years,

804



He raiseth Jairus^ daughter, Sfc.

•came behind him, and touched the hem of
his garment.

21 For she said within herself, If I
may but touch his garment, I shall be
whole. ,

22 But Jesus turned .him about, and
when he saw her, he said. Daughter, be
of good comfort: ithy faiih 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 Hhe minstrels and the

people making a noise,

24 He said unto them, * Give place : for
the maid is not dead, but sleepeth. And they
laughed him-to scorn.

25 But when the people were put forth,
he went in, and took her by ■the hand, and
the maid arose.

26 And II the fame hereof 'frent abroad
into all that land.

27 HAnd when Jesus departed thence,
two blind men followed him, crying, and
saying, " Thou son of David, have mercy on
us.

28 And when he was come into the house,
the blind men came to him : and Jesus saith
unto them. Believe ye that I am able to do
this? They said unto him. Yea, Lord.

29 Then touched he their eyes, saying.
According to your faith, be it unto you.

30 And their eyes were opened; and
Jesus straitly charged them, saying, =" See
that no man know it..

31 yBut they, when they were departed,
spread abroad his fame in all that country.

32 IT ^ As they went out, behold, they
brought to him a dumb man possessed with
a devil.

33 And when the devil was cast out, the
dumb spake: and the multitudes marvelled,
saying. It was never so seen in Israel.

34 But the Pharisees said, *He cast-
eth out devils, through the prince of the
devils.

35 '•And Jesus went about all the cities
and villages, "teaching in their synagogues,
and- preaching the gospel of the kingdom,
and healing every sickness, and every disease
among the- people.

36 H'' But when he saw the multitudes, he
was moved with compassion on them, be-
cause they II fainted, and were scattered
abroad, « as sheep having no shepherd.

37 Then saith he unto his disciples, '"The
harvest truly is plenteous, but the labourers
are few.

38 ePray ye therefore the Lord of the
harvest, that he will send forth labourers into
his harvest.

He sendeth.out his ttvelve apostles.
CHAP. X.



I Christ sendeth out his twelve apostles, enabling them
with power to do miracles, 5 giveth them their charge,
teacheth them, 16 comforteth them against persecutions,
40 and promisetk a blessing to those that receive them.

AND "when he had called unto him his
twelve disciples, he gave them power

II against unclean spirits, to cast them out,
and to heal all manner of sickness, and all
manner of disease.

2 Now-the names of the twelve apostles
are these ; The first, Simon, •'who is called
Peter,- and Andrew his brother; James the
son of Zebedee, and John his brother ;

3 Philip, and Bartholomew; Thomas, and
Matthew the publican ; James the son of
Alpheus, and Lebbeus, whose surname was*
Thaddeua ;

4 •= Simon the Canaanite, and Judas ''Isca-
riot, who also betrayed him.

5 These twelve Jesus sent forth, and
commanded, them, saying, *Go not into the
way of the Gentiles, and into any city of
•"the Samaritans enter ye not.

6- eBut go rather to the ''lost sheep of the
house of Israel.

7 'And as ye go, preach, saying, ''The
kingdom of heaven is at hand.

8 Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise
the dead, cast out devils : 'freely ye have re-
ceived, freely give.

9 ■" II Provide neither gold, nor silver, nor
"brass in your purses;

10 Nor scrip for yowr journey, neither two
coats, neither shoes, nor yet t staves: ("for
the workman is worthy of his meat.)

11 PAnd into whatsoever city or town ye
shall enter, inquire who in it is worthy; and
there abide till ye go thence.

12 And when ye come into an house, sa-
lute it.

13 q And if the house be worthy, let your
peace come upon it : ■'but if it be not wor-
thy, let your peace return to you.

14' And whosoever shall not receive you, nor
hear your words, when ye depart out of that
house, or city, 'shake off the dust of your feet.

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. *

J( 16 IT '^Behold, I send you forth as sheep
in the midst of wolves: ybe ye therefore*
wise as serpents, and ^ || harmless as doves.

17 But beware of men : for "they will de^
liver you up to the councils, and ""they will
scourge you in their synagogues.

18 And "ye shall be brought before go-
vernors and kings for my sake, for a testi-
mony against them and the Gentiles.



Christ foretifarneth his apostles.



S. MATTHEW.



19 *But when they deUver you up, take
no thought how or what ye shall speak, for
* it shall be given you in that same hour
what ye shall speak.

20 Tor it is not ye that speak, but the
Spirit of your Father which speaketh in you.

21 sAnd the brother shall deliver up the
brother to death, and the father the child:
and the children shall rise up against their
parents, and cause them to be put to death.

22 And ''ye shall be hated of all men for
my name's sake: 'but he that endureth to
the end shall be saved.

23 But ''when they persecute you in this
city, flee ye into another : for verily I say
unto you. Ye shall not || have gone over the

« cities of Israel 'till the Son of man be come.

24 ■" The disciple is not above his master,
nor the servant above his lord.

25 It is enough for the disciple that he be
as his master, and the servant as his lord : if
"they have called the master of the house
t Beelzebub, how much more shall they call
them of his household?

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 darkness, that speak
ye in light : and what ye hear in the ear,
that preach ye upon the house-tops.

28 PAnd fear not them which kill the
body, but are not able to kill the soul : but
rather fear him which is able to destroy both
soul and body in hell.

29 Are not two sparrows sold for a || far-
thing ? and one of them shall not fall on the
ground without your Father.

30 iBut the very hairs of your head are
all numbered.

31 .Fear ye not therefore, ye are of more
value than many sparrows.

32 "^ Whosoever therefore shall confess
me before men, =him will I confess also be-
fore my Father which is in heaven.

33 'But whosoever shall deny me before
men, him will I also deny "before my Father
which is in heaven.

34 "Think not that I am come to send
peace on earth ; I came not to send peace,
but a sword.

.35 For I am come to set a man at vari-
ance "against his father, and the daughter
against her mother, and the daughter-in-law
against her mother-in-law.

36 And y a man's foes shall be they of his
own household.

37 ^ He that loveth father or mother more
than me, is not worth}" of me : and he that
loveth son or daughter more than me, is not
worthy of me.

A'



John sendeth his disciples to .Christ.

38 " And he that taketh not his cross, and'
followeth after me, is not worthy of me.

39 ''He that findeth his life shall lose it:
and he that loseth his life for my sake, shall
find it. ,

40 H "= He that receiveth you, receiveth me ;
and he that receiveth me, receiveth him that
sent me.

41 •'He that receiveth a prophet in the
name of a prophet, shall receive a prophet's
reward; and he that receiveth a righteous
man in the name of a righteous man, shall
receive a righteous man's reward.

42 "And whosoever shall give to drink
unto one of these little ones, a "cup of cold
water only, in the name of a disciple, verily

1 say unto you, he shall in no wise lose'his
reward.

CHAP. XI.

2 John sendeth his disciples to Christ. 7 Christ's testi-
mony concerning John. 18 The opinion of the people,
both concerning John and Christ. 20 Christ upbraid-
eth the unthankfulness and unrepentance ofChorazin,
Bethsaida, and Capernaum .- 25 and praising his
Father's wisdom in reBealing the gospel to the simple,
28 he calleth to him all such as feel the burden of their
sins.

ND it came to pass when Jesus had

made an end of commanding his twelve

disciples, he departed thence to teach and to
preach in their cities.

2 " Now when .John had heard '■in the
prison the works of Christ, he sent two of
his disciples,

3 And said unto himj Art thou "he that
should come, or do we look for another?

4 Jesus answered and said unto them, Go
and shew John again those things which ye
do hear and see :

5 ''The blind receive their sight, and the
lame walk, the lepers are cleansed, and the
deaf hear, the dead are raised up, and ^the
poor have the gospel preached to them.

6 And blessed is he whosoever shall not

.^. fbe offended in me.

'!j;io.&2l'V''7 ^^And as they departed, Jesus began to

say unto the multitudes concerning John,
What went ye out into the wilderness to see ?
''A reed shaken with the wind ?

8 But what went ye out for to see? A
man clothed in soft raiment? Behold, they
that wear soft clothing are in kings' houses.

9 But what went ye out for to see? A
prophet? yea, I say unto you, 'and more
than a prophet.

10 For this is he of whom it is written,
^ Behold, I send my messenger before thy
face, which shall prepare thy way before
thee.

11 "Verily I say unto you, Among them
that are born of women, there hath not risen

806



Christ upbraideth Chorazin, Sfc.

a greater than John the Baptist : notwith-
standing, he that is least in the kingdom of
heaven, is greater than he.

12 'And from the days of John the Bap-
tist, until now, the kingdom of heaven || suf-
fereth violence, and the violent take it by
force.

13 "For all the prophets and the law
prophesied until John.

14 And if ye will receive it, this is "Elias
which was for to come.

15 "He that hath ears to hear, let him
/■ hear.

|^>^ 16 IT P But whereunto shall I liken this
generation? It is like unto children sitting
in the markets, and calling unto their fel-
lows,

17 And saying, We have piped unto you,
and ye have not danced; we have mourned
unto you, and ye have not lamented.

18 For John came neither eating nor
drinking, and they say. He hath a devil.

19 The Son. of man came eating and
drinking, and they say. Behold, a man glut-
tonous, and a wine-bibber, ^a friend of pub-
licans and sinners. "^But wisdom is justified
of her children.

„^ 20 H' Then began he to upbraid the cities
wherein most of his mighty works were done,
•because they repented not.

21 Wo unto thee, Chorazin ! wo unto thee,
Bethsaida! for if the mighty works which
were done in you had been done in Tyre
and Sidon, they would have repented long
ago *in sackcloth and ashes.

22 But I say unto you, "It shall be more
tolerable for Tyre and Sidon at the day of
judgment, than for you.

23 And thou, Capernaum, ^ which art ex-
alted unto heaven, shalt be brought down to
hell : for if the mighty works which have
been done in thee, had been done" in Sodom,
it would have remained until thia day. •

24 But I say unto you^ yThat it shall be
more tolerable for the land of Sodom, in the
day of judgment, than for thee.

25 IT^At that time Jesus answered and
said, I thank thee, O Father, Lord of heaven
and earth, because ''thou hast hid these things
from the wise and prudent, ""and hast revealed
them unto babes.

26 Even so. Father, for so it seemed
good in thy sight.

27 "AH things are delivered unto me of
my Father ;■ and no man knoweth the Son,
but the Father; "^ neither knoweth any man
the Father, save the Son, and he to whomso-
ever the Son will reveal him.

28 1 Come unto me, all ye that labour, and
are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
