adultery : and whoso marrieth her which is
put away, doth commit adultery.

10 IT His disciples say unto him, ''If the
case of the man be so with his wife, it is
not good to marry.

11 But he said unto them, 'AH men can-
not receive this saying, save they to whom
it is given. ^

12 For there are some eunuchs, which
were so born from their mother's womb :
and there are some eunuchs, which were
made eunuchs of men : and ^ there be eu-
nuchs, which have made themselves eunuchs
for the kingdom of heaven's sake. He that
is able to receive it, let him receive it.

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

14 But Jesus said. Suffer little children,
and forbid them not, to come unto me : for
■"of such is the kingdom of heaven.

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

16 IT ° And behold, one came and said
unto him, "Good Master, what good thing
shall I do that 1 may have eternal life?

17 And he said unto him. Why callest
thou me good? there is none good but one,
that is, God : but if thou wilt enter into
life, keep the commandments.

18 He saith unto him. Which? Jesus
said, PThou shalt do no murder. Thou shalt
not commit adultery, Thou shalt not steal,
Thou shalt not bear false witness,

191 Honour thy father and thy mother : and,
■"Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.

20 The young man saith unto him. All
these things have I kept from my youth up :
what lack I yet?

21 Jesus said unto him, If thou wilt be
perfect, =go and sell that thou hast, and give
to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in
heaven : and come and follow me.

22 But when the young man heard that
saying, he went away sorrowful: for he had
great possessions.

23 IT Then said Jesus unto his disciples,
Verily I say unto you. That 'a rich man shall
hardly enter into the kingdom of heaven.

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

25 When his disciples heard it, they were
exceedingly amazed, saying. Who then can
be saved?

26 But Jesus beheld them, and said unto
them. With men this is impossible, but
"with God all things are possible.

Of the labourers in the vineyard.

27 ^ X Then answered Peter, and said unto
him, Behold, ^we have forsaken all, and
followed thee ; what shall we have there-

28 And Jesus said unto them, Verily I say
unto you. That ye which have followed me
in the regeneration, when the Son of man
shall sit in the throne of his glory, ^ye also
shall sit upon twelve thrones, judging the
twelve tribes of Israel.

29 °^And every one that hath forsaken
houses, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or
mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for
my name's sake, shall receive an hundred-
fold, and shall inherit everlasting life.

30 ""But many that are first shall be last,
and the last shall be first.

II Or,

7med one
hour only.


1 Christ, by the similitude of the labourers in the vine-
yard, sheweth that God is debtor unto no man : 17 fore-
telleth his passion : 20 by answering the mother of
Zebedee's children teacheth his disciples to be lowly ;
30 and giveth two blind men their sight.

FOR the kingdom of heaven is like unto
a man that 25 an householder, which went
out early in the morning to hire labourers
into his vineyard.

2 And when he had agreed with the la-
bourers for a II penny a day, he sent them
into his vineyard.

3 And he went, out about the third hour,
and saw others standing idle in the market-

4 And said unto them, Go ye also into
the vineyard; and whatsoever is right, I will
give you. And they went their way.

5 Again he went out about the sixth and
ninth hour, and did likewise.

6 And about the eleventh hour he went
out, and found others standing idle, and
saith unto them. Why stand ye here all the
day idle ?

7 They say unto him. Because no man
hath hired us. He saith unto them. Go ye
also into the vineyard ; and whatsoever is
right, that shall ye receive.

8 So when even was come, the lord of
the vineyard saith unto his steward. Call the
labourers, and give 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 penny.

10 But when the first came, they supposed
that they should have received more; and
they likewise received every man a penny.

11 And when they had received it, they
murmured against the good man of the

12 Saying, These last || have wrought hut

one hour, and thou hast made them equal
unto us, which have borne the burden and
heat of the day.

13 But he answered one of them, and
said. Friend, I do thee no wrong : didst not
tliou agree with me for a penny?

14 Take that thine is, and go thy way :
I will give unto this last, even as unto

15 * Is it not lawful for me to do what I
will with mine -own ? *• is thine eye evil be-
cause I am good?

16 "So the last shall be first, and the first
last: *for many be called, but few chosen.

I"- 17 II « And Jesus going up to Jerusalem,
took the twelve disciples apart in the way,
and said unto them,

18 f" Behold, we go up. to Jerusalem; and
the Son of man shall be betrayed unto the
chief priests, and unto the scribes, and they
shall condemn him to death,

19 5 And shall deliver him to the Gentiles
to mock, and to scourge, and to crucify him:
and the third day he shall rise again.

20 H •■ Then came to him the mother of
'Zebedee's children, with her sons, worship-
ping him, and desiring a certain thing of him.

21 And he said unto her, What wilt thou?
She saith unto him. Grant that these my
two sons ''may sit, the one on thy right
hand, and the other on the left, in thy

22 But Jesus answered and said. Ye know
not what ye ask. Are ye able to drink of
'the cup that I shall drink of, and to be
baptized with " the baptism that I am bap-
tized with? They say unto him. We are

23 And he saith unto them, ° Ye shall drink
indeed of my cup, and be baptized with the
baptism that I am baptized with : but, to sit
on my right hand, and on my left, is not
mine to °give, but it shall be given to them
for whom it is prepared of my Father.

24 pAnd when the ten heard i7, they
were moved with indignation against the
two brethren.

25 But Jesus called them unto him, and
said. Ye know that the princes of the
Gentiles exercise dominion over them, and
they that are great exercise authority upon

26 But 5 it shall not be so among you:
but 'whosoever will be great among you,
let him be your minister ;

27 ' And whosoever will be chief among
you, let him be your servant:

28 ' Even as the " Son of man came not
to be ministered unto, ^but to minister, and
Jto give his hfe a ransom ^for many.

He rideth intcf Jerusalem upon an ass.

29 ' And as they departed from Jericho,
a great multitude followed him.

30 H And behold, ^ two blind men sitting
by the way-side, when they heard that Jesus
passed by, cried out, saying. Have mercy
on us, O Lord, thou son of David.

31 And the multitude rebuked them, be-
cause they should hold their peace : but they
cried the more, saying. Have mercy on us,

Lord, thou son of David.

32 And Jesus stood still, and called them,
and said. What will ye that I shall do unto

33 They say unto him. Lord, that our
eyes may be opened.

34 So Jesus had compassion on them, and
touched their eyes : and immediately their
eyes received sight, and they followed him.


1 Christ rideth into Jerusalem upon an ass, 12 driveth
the buyers and sellers out of the temple, 17 curseth the
fig-tree, 23 putteth to silence the priests and elders,
28 and rehuketh them by the similitvde of the two sons,

35 and the husbandmen, who slew suuji as were sent
unto them,.

AND * when they drew nigh unto Jeru-
salem, and were come to- Bethphage,
unto •• the mount of Olives, then sent Jesus
two disciples,

2 Saying unto them, Go into the village
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 man say aught unto you, ye
shall - say. The Lord hath need of them ;
and straightway he will send them.

4 All this was done, that it might be ful-
filled which was spoken by the propliet,

thy King cometh unto thee, meek, and sit-
ting upon an ass, and a colt the foal of an

6 ^ And the disciples went, and did as Jesus
commanded them,

7 And brought the ass and the colt, and
«put on them their clothes, and they set
him thereon.

8 And a very great multitude spread their
garments in the way; ^others cut down
branches from the trees, and strewed them
in the way.

9 And the multitudes that went before,
and that followed, cried, saying, ^Hosanna
to the Son of David: ''Blessed is he that
cometh in the name of the Lord: Hosanna
in the highest.

God, and cast out all them that sold and
bought in the temple, and overthrew the
tables of the '"money-changers, and the seats
of them that sold doves,

13 And said unto them, It is written,

14 And the blind and the lame came to
him in the temple ; and he healed them .

1 5 And when the chief priests and scribes
saw the wonderful things that he did, and
the children crying in the temple, and say-

were sore displeased,

16 And said unto him, Hearest thou what
these say ? And Jesus saith unto them. Yea :
have ye never read, pQut of the mouth of
babes and sucklings thou hast perfected

^ the city into iBethany, and he lodged there.

18 "^Now in the morning, as he returned
into the city, he hungered.

way, he came to it, and found nothing
thereon, but leaves only, and said unto it,
Let no fruit grow on thee henceforward for
ever. And presently the fig-tree withered

20 'And when the disciples saw it, they
marvelled, saying. How soon is the fig-tree
withered away!

21 Jesus answered and said unto them,
Verily I say unto you, "If ye have faith,
and "= doubt not, ye shall not only do this
which is done to the fig-tree, y but also, if ye
shall say unto this mountain. Be thou re-
moved, and be thou cast into the sea; it
shall be done.

1 1 ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive.

V temple, the chief priests and the elders of
the people came unto him as he was teach-
ing, and ••said, By what authority doest
thou these things? and who gave thee.this
authority .'

24 And Jesus answered and said unto them,
I also will ask you one thing, which if ye
tell me, I in likewise will tell you by what
authority I do these things.

from heaven, or of men ? And they rea-

We cannot tell. And he said unto them,
Neither tell I you by. what authority I do
these things. /

28 HBut what think ye? A certain manC
had two sons ; and he came to the first, and
said. Son, go work to-day in my vineyard.

29 He answered and said, I will not; but
afterward he repented, and went.

30 And he came to the second, and said
likewise. And he answered and said, I go,
sir : and went not.

31 Whether of them twain did the will of
his father? They say unto him, The first.
Jesus saith unto them, * Verily I say unto
you. That the publicans and the harlots go
into the kingdom of God before you.

32 For ''John came unto you in the way
of righteousness, and ye believed him not :
^but the publicans and the harlots believed
him : and ye, when ye had seen it, repented
not afterward, that ye might believe him.

33 IT Hear another parable ; There was a
certain householder, ■'which planted a vine-
yard, and hedged it round about, and digged
a wine-press in it, and built a tower, and let
it out to husbandmen, and 'went into a far
country : "*

34 And when the time of the fruit drew
near, he sent his servants to the husbandmen,
''that they might receive the fruits of it.,

35 'And the husbandmen took his servants,
and beat one, and killed another, and stoned

36 Again he sent other servants more than
the first : and they did unto them likewise.

37 But last of all, he sent unto them his
son, saying. They Avill reverence my son.

38 But when the husbandmen saw the son,
they said among themselves, ■» This is the
heir ; " come, let us kill him, and let us seize
on his inheritance.

39 ° And they caught him, and cast him
out of the vineyard, and slew him.

40 When the lord therefore of the vine-
yard cometh, what will he do unto those

• to a nation bringing forth the fruits thereof.

44 And whosoever "shall fall on this stone,
shall be broken : but on whomsoever it shall
fall, *it will grind him to powder.

45 And when the chief priests and Phari-
sees had heard his parables, they perceived
that he spake of them.

46 But when they sought to lay hands on
him, they feared the multitude, because y they
took him for a prophet.


1 The parable of the marriage of the king's son. 9 The
vocation of the Gentiles. 12 The punishment of him
that wanted the wedding garment. 15 Tribute ought
to be paid to Cesar. 23 Christ confuteth the Sadducees
for tlie resurrection : 34 answereth the lawyer, which
is the first and great commandment : 41 and poseth
the Pharisees about the Messias.

AND Jesus answered " and spake unto
them again by parables, and said,

2 The kingdom of heaven is like unto a
certain king, which made a marriage for his

3 And sent forth his servants to call them
that were bidden to the wedding : and they
would not come.

4 Again, he sent forth other servants, say-
ing, Tell them which are bidden. Behold, I
have prepared my dinner: ''my oxen and my
fatlings are killed, and all things are ready :
come unto the marriage.

5 But they made light of it, and went their
ways, one to his farm, another to his mer-

6 And the remnant took his servants, and
entreated them spitefully, and slew them.

7 But when the king heard thereof, he
was wroth : and he sent forth "his armies, and
destroyed those murderers, and burned up
their city.

8 Then saith he to his servants. The wed-
ding is ready, but they which were bidden
were not ''worthy.

9 Go ye therefore into the highways, and
as many as ye shall find, bid to the marriage.

10 So those servants went out into the
highways, and ^gathered together all as many
as they found, both bad and good : and the
wedding was furnished with guests.

11 IF And when the king came in to see the
guests, he saw there a man ''which had not on
a wedding-garment :

12 And he saith unto him. Friend, how
earnest thou in hither, not having a wedding-
garment? And he M^as speechless.

13 Then said the king to the servants,
Bind him hand and foot, and take him away,
and cast him e into outer darkness : there
shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

27 And last of all the woman died also.

28 Therefore in the resurrection, whose
wife shall she be of the seven ? for they all
had her.

29 Jesus answered and said unto them,
Ye do err, Pnot knowing the scriptures, nor
the power of God.

30 For in the resurrection they neither
marry, nor are given in marriage, but ^ are
as the angels of God in heaven.

31 But as touching the resurrection of the
dead, have ye notread thatwhich was spoken
unto you by God, saying,

32- '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 multitude heard this,
'they were astonished at his doctrine.

34 IF ' But when the Pharisees had heard
that he had put the Sadducees to silence,
they were gathered together.





Christ answereth the lawyer.

35 Then one of them which was " a law-
yer, asked him a question, tempting him,
and saying,

36 Master, which is the great command-
ment in the law ?

37 Jesus said unto him, '^Thou shalt love
the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and
with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.

38 This is the first and great command-

39 And the second is like unto it, y Thou
shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.

40 ^ On these two commandments hang all
the law and the prophets.

41 IT ''While the Pharisees were gathered
together, Jesus asked them,

42 Saying, What think ye of Christ?
whose son is he? They say unto him, The
son "of David,

43 He saith unto them. How then doth
David in spirit call him Lord, saying,

44 " The Lord said unto my Lord, Sit
thou on my right hand, till I make thine
enemies thy footstool ?

45 If David then call him Lord, how is
he his son ?

46 •'And no man was able to answer him
a word, ^neither durst any man, from that day
forth, ask him any more questions.
