THEN spake Jesus to the multitude,
and to his disciples,

2 Saying, " The scribes and the Pharisees
sit in Moses' seat :

3 All therefore whatsoever they bid you
observe, that observe and do : but do not ye
after their works : for ''they say, and do not.

4 "For they bind heavy burdens, and
grievous to be borne, and lay them on men's
shoulders ; but they themselves will not move
them with cue of their fingers.

5 But ^ all their works they do for to be
seen of men : «they make broad their phylac-
teries, and enlarge the borders of their gar-
ments,

6 ''And love the uppermost rooms at
feasts, and the chief seats in the synagogues,

7 And greetings in the markets, and to
be called of men, Rabbi, Rabbi.

8 8^ But be not ye called Rabbi: for one is
your Master, even Christ; and all ye are
brethren.

9 And call no man your father upon the
earth : ^ for one is your Father, which is in
heaven.



S. MATTHEW. He denounceth woes against the Pharisees.

10 Neither be ye called masters : for one
is your Master, even Christ.

1 1 But ' he that is greatest among you,
shall be your servant.

12 ^ And whosoever shall exalt himself,
shall be abased ; and he that shall humble
himself, shall be exalted.

13 IF But 'wo unto you, scribes and Phari-
sees, hypocrites ! for ye shut up the kingdom
of heaven against men : for ye neither go in
yourselves, neither suffer ye them that are
entering, to go in.

14 Wo unto you, scribes and Pharisees,
hypocrites ! ™ for ye devour widows' houses,
and for a pretence make long prayer : there-
fore ye shall receive the greater damnation.

15 Wb unto you, scribes and Pharisees,
hypocrites ! for ye compass sea and land to
make one proselyte ; and when he is made, ye
make him two-fold more the child of hell than
yourselves.

16 Wo unto you, °ye blind guides ! which
say, "Whosoever shall swear by the temple,
it is nothing ; but whosoever shall swear by
the gold of the temple, he is a debtor.

17 Ye fools, and blind ! for whether is
greater, the gold, p or the temple that sancti-
fieth the gold ?

18 And whosoever shall swear by the
altar, it is nothing ; but whosoever sweareth
by the gift that is upon it, he is || guilty.

19 Ye fools, and blind ! for whether is
greater, the gift, or '^ the altar that sanctifieth
the gift?

20 Whoso therefore shall swear by the
altar, sweareth by it, and by all things
thereon.

21 And whoso shall swear by the temple,
sweareth by it, and by ' him that dwelleth
therein.

22 And he that shall swear by heaven,
sweareth by =the throne of God, and by him
that sitteth thereon.

23 Wo unto you, scribes and Pharisees,
hypocrites ! ' for ye pay tithe of mint, and
t anise, and cummin, and " have omitted the
weightier makers of the law, judgment, mercy,
and faith : these ought ye to have done, and
notto leave the other undone.

24 Ye blind guides, which strain at a gnat,
and swallow a camel.

25 Wo unto you, scribes and Pharisees,
hypocrites ! ^for ye make clean the outside of
the cup and of the platter, but within they
are full of extortion and excess.

26 Thou blind Pharisee, cleanse first that
which is within the cup and platter, that the
outside of them may be clean also.

27 Wo unto you, scribes and Pharisees,
hypocrites ! y for ye are like unto whited se-

The destruction of Jerusalem,

pulchres, which indeed appear beautiful out-
ward, but are within full of dead men^s bones,
and of all uncleanness.

28 Even so ye also outwardly appear
righteous unto men, but within ye are full of
hypocrisy and iniquity.

29 ^ Wo unto you, scribes and Pharisees,
hypocrites! because ye build the tombs of
the prophets, and garnish the sepulchres
of the righteous,

30 And say. If we had been in the days of
our fathers, we would not have been par-
takers with them in the blood of the pro-
phets.

31 Wherefore ye be witnesses unto your-
selves, that *ye are the children of them
which killed the prophets.

32 ''Fill ye up then the measure of your
fathers.

33 Ye serpents, ye "generation of vipers,
how can ye escape the damnation of hell ?

34 IT ''Wherefore, behold, I send unto you
prophets, and wise men, and scribes; and
* some of them ye shall kill and crucify, and
^some of them shall ye scourge in your syna-
gogues, and persecute them from city to city :

35 ^That upon you may come all the right-
eous blood shed upon the earth, ^ from the
blood of righteous Abel, unto 'the blood of
Zacharias, son of Barachias, whom ye slew
between the temple and the altar.

36 Verily I say unto you. All these things
shall come upon this generation.

37 ''O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, tJiou that
killest the prophets, 'and stonestthem which
are sent unto thee, how often would ™Ihave
gathered thy children together, even as a hen
gathereth her chickens "under her wings, and
ye would not !

38 Behold, your house is left unto you
desolate.

39 For I say unto you. Ye shall' not see
me henceforth, till ye shall say, "Blessed is
he that cometh in the name of the Lord.

the temple : and his disciples came to
him for to shew him the buildings of the
temple.

2 And Jesus said unto them. See ye not
all these things ? verily I say unto you, •• There
shall not be left here one stone upon another,
that shall not be thrown down.

and of the temple, foretold.

Olives, ■= the disciples came unto him privately,
saying, ^Tell us, when shall these things be?
and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and
of the end of the world?

4 And Jesus answered and said unto them,
■^Talft heed that no man deceive you.

5 For ''many shall come in my name, say-
ing, I am Christ; sand shall deceive many.

6 And ye shall hear of wars, and rumours
of wars : see that ye be not troubled : for all
these things must come to pass, but the end
is not yet.

7 For ''nation shall rise against nation,
and kingdom against kingdom : and there
shall be famines, and pestilences, and earth-
quakes in divers places..

8 All these are the beginning of sorrows.

9 ' Then shall they deliver you up to be
afflicted, and shall kill you : and ye shall be
hated of all nations for my name's sake.

10 And then shall many ''be offended,
and shall betray one another, and shall hate
one another. .

11 And 'many false prophets shall rise,
and "shall deceive many.

12 And because iniquity shall abound, the
love of many shall wax cold.

13 "But he that shall endure unto the
end, the same shall be saved.

14 And this "gospel of the kingdom p shall
be preached in all the world, for a witness
unto all nations; and then shall the end
come.

15 1 When ye, therefore, shall see the abo-
mination of desolation, spoken of by ■■ Daniel
the prophet, stand in the'holy place, ('whoso
readeth, let him understand,)

16 Then let them which be in Judea flee
into the mountains:

17 Let him which is on the house-top not
come down to take any thing out of his
house :

18 Neither let him which is in the field
return back to take his clothes.

19 And 'wo unto them that are with
child, and to them that give suck in those
days!

20 But pray ye that your flight be not in
the winter, neither on the sabbath-day :

21 For "then shall be great tribulation,
such as was not since the beginning of the
world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.

22 And except those days should be short-
ened, there should no flesh be saved : ^ but
for the elect's sake those days shall be
shortened.

23 yThen if any man shall say unto you,
Lo, here is Christ, or there ; believe it not.

24 For nhere shall arise false Christs, and
false prophets, and shall shew great signs and

wonders; insomuch that, "if it were possible,
they shall deceive the very elect.

25 Behold, I have told you before.
'^ 26 Wherefore, if they shall say unto you.
Behold, he is in the desert ; go not forth :
behold, he is in the secret chambers ; believe
it not.

27 ''For as the lightning cometh out of
the east, and shineth even unto the west; so
shall also the coming of the Son of man be.

28 "^For wheresoever the carcass is, there
will the eagles be gathered together.

29 IT ''Immediately after the tribulation of
those days, * shall the sun be darkened, and
the moon shall not give her light, and the
stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers
of the heavens shall be shaken : •

30 f And then shall appear the sign of the
Son of man in heaven: sand then shall* all
the tribes of the . earth mourn, '■ and they
shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds
of heaven with power and great glory.

31 'And he shall send his angels || with a
great sound of a trumpet, and they shall ga-
ther together his elect from the four winds,
from one end of heaven to the other.

32 Now learn ''a parable of the fig-tree;
When his branch is yet tender, and putteth
forth leaves, ye know that summer is nigh :

33 So likewise ye, when ye shall see all
these things, know 'that || it is near, even at
the doors.

34 Verily I say unto you, "This genera-
tion shjill not pass, till all these things be
fulfilled.

35 "Heaven and earth shall pass away, but
my words shall not pass away.

36 IT "But of that day and hour knoweth
no man, no, not the angels of heaven, p but
my Father only.

37 But as the days of Noe were, so shall
also the coming of the Son of man be.

38 iFor as in the days that were before
the flood, they were eating and drinking, mar-
rying and giving in marriage, until the day
that Noe entered into the ark,

39 And knew not until the flood came,
and took them all away: so shall also the
coming of the Son of man be.

40 ' Then shall two be in the field ; the
one shall be taken, and the other left.

41 Two women shall be grinding at the
mill; the one shall be taken, and the other left.

42 IT = Watch therefore ; for ye know not
what hour your Lord doth come.

43 *But know this, that if the good man
of the house had known in what watch the
thief would come, he would have watched,
and would not have suffered his house to be
broken up.

49 And shall begin to smite his fellow-
servants, and to eat and drink with the
drunken ;

50 The lord of that servant shall come in
a day when he looketh not for him, and in an
hour that he is not aware of,

point him his portion with the hypocrites :

CHAP. XXV.

1 The parahle of the ten virgins, li and of the tale7i[s.
31 Also the description of the last judgment.

THEN shall the kingdom of heaven be
likened unto ten virgins, which took
their lamps, and went forth to meet ''the
bridegroom.

' 2 ''And five of them were wise, and five
were foolish.

3 They that were foolish took their lamps,
and took no oil with them :

4 But the wise took oil in their vessels
with their lamps.

5 While the bridegroom tarried, "^they all
slumbered and slept.

6 And at midnight ^ there was a cry
made. Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go
ye out to meet him.

7 Then all those virgins arose, and ^trim-
med their lamps.

8 And the foolish said unto the wise. Give
us of your oil : for our lamps are || gone out.

9 But the wise answered, saying. Not so;
lest there be not enough for us and you : but
go ye rather to them that sell, and buy for
yourselves.

10 And while they went to buy, the bride-
groom came ; and they that were ready, went
in with him to the marriage : and ^ the door
was shut.

11 Afterward came also the other virgins,
saying, ?Lord, Lord, open to us.

' 12 But he answered and said, Verily I say
unto you, ''I know you not.

13 'Watch therefore, for ye know neither
the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man
cometh.

and of the talents. »

^^ 14 IT ''For the kingdom of heaven is 'as a
\ian travelling into a far country, who called
his own servants, and delivered unto them
his goods.

15 And unto one he gave five ]| talents, to
another two, and to another one; ""to every
man according to his several ability; and
straightway took his journey.

16 Then he that had received the five
talents, went and traded with the same, and
made them other five talents.

17 And likewise he that had received two,
he also gained other two.

18 But he that had received one, went
and digged in the earth, and hid his lord's
money.

19 After a Jong time the lord of those
servants cometh, and reckoneth with them.

20 And so he that had received five talents,
came and brought other five talents, saying,
Lord, thou deliveredst unto me five talents :
behold, I have gained besides them five talents
more.

21 His lord said unto him. Well done,
thou good and faithful servant; thou hast
been faithful over a few things, °I will make
thee ruler over many things : enter thou into
"the joy of thy lord.

22 He also that had received two talents
came, and said. Lord, thou deliveredst unto
me two talents : behold, I have gained two
other talents besides them.

23 His lord said unto him, PWell done,
good and faithful servant; thou hast been
faithful over a few things, I will make thee
ruler over many things : enter thou into the
joy of thy lord.

24 Then he which had received the one
talent came, and said. Lord, I knew thee
that thou art an hard man, reaping where
thou hast not sown, and gathering where
thou hast not strewed :

25 And I was afraid, and went and hid
thy talent in the earth: lo, there thou hast
that is thine.

26 His lord answered and said unto him,
Thou wicked and slothful servant, thou
knewest that I reap where I sov/ed not, and
gather where I have not strewed :

27 Thou oughtest therefore to have put
my money to the exchangers, and then at
my coming I should have received mine own
with usury.

28 Take therefore the talent from him,
. and give it unto him which hath ten talents.

29 1 For unto every one that hath shall be
given, and he shall have abundance : but from
him that hath not, shall be taken away even
that which he hath.

30 And cast ye the unprofitable servant

The description of the last judgment.

'into outer darkness : there shall be weeping
and gnashing of teeth.

31 IT 'When the Son of man shall come
in his glory, and all the holy angels with
him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his
glory:

32 And t before him shall be gathered all
nations : and " he sliall separate them one
from another, as a shepherd divideth his
sheep from the goats :

33 And he shall set the sheep on his right
hand, but the goats on the left.

34 Then shall the King say. unto them on
his right hand. Come, ye blessed of my Fa-
ther, ^inherit the kingdom y prepared for
you from the foundation of the world :

35 ^ ForLwas anhungered, and ye gave me
meat : I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink :
*I was a stranger, and ye took me in :

36 ''Naked, and ye clothed me: I was
sick, and ye visited me : ■=! was in prison, and
ye came unto me.

37 Then shall the righteous answer him,
saying. Lord, when saw we thee an hungered,
and fed thee ? or thirsty, and gave thee drink ?

38 When saw we thee a stranger, and took
thee in ? or naked, and clothed thee ?

39 Or when saw we thee sick; or in prison,
and came unto thee?

40 And the King shall answer and say unto
them. Verily I say unto you, ^ Inasmuch as
ye have done it unto one of the least of these
my brethren, ye have done it unto me.

41 Then shall he say also unto them on
the left hand, ^ Depart from me, ye cursed,
^into everlasting fire, prepared for s the devil
and his angels :

42 For I was an hungered, and ye gave
me no meat : I was thirsty, and ye gave me
no drink:

43 I was a stranger, and ye took me not
in : naked, and ye clothed me not : sick, and
in prison, and ye visited me not.

44 Then shall they also answer him, say-
ing. Lord, when saw we thee anhungered, or
athirst, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in
prison, and did not minister unto thee ?

45 Then shall he answer them, saying.
Verily I say unto you, '•Inasmuch as ye did
it not to one of the least of these, ye did it
not to me.

46 And 'these shall go away into ever-
lasting punishment: but the righteous into
life eternal.

The rulers conspire against Christ.

AND it came to pass, when Jesus had
finished all these sayings, he said unto
his disciples,

2 ''Ye know that after two days is the
feast of the passover, and the Son of man
is betrayed to be crucified.

3 ^ Then assembled together the chief
priests, and the scribes, and the elders of the
people, unto the palace of the high priest,
who was called Caiaphas,

4 And consulted that they might take
Jesus by subtilty, and kill him.

5 But they, said. Not on the feast-tZa^/j l^st
there be an uproar among the people.

6 H^Now when Jesus was in "^Bethany,
in the house of Simon the leper,

7 There came unto him a woman having
an alabaster-box of very precious ointment,
and poured it on his head as he sat at meat.

8 *But when his disciples saw it, they had
indignation, saying. To what purpose is this
waste ?

9 For this ointment might have been sold
for much, and given to the poor.

10 When Jesus understood it, he said unto
them, Why trouble ye the woman ? for she
hath wrought a good work upon me.

11 Tor ye have the poor always with
you ; but s me ye have not always.

12 For in that she hath poured this oint-
ment on my body, "she did it for my burial.

13 Verily I say unto you, Wheresoever this
gospel shall be preached in the whole world,
there shall also this, that this woman hath
done, be told for a memorial of her.
