insurrection with him, who had committed
murder in the insurrection.

8 And the multitude crying aloud, began
to desire him to do as he had ever done unto
them,

9 But Pilate answered them, saying, WiL
ye that I release unto you the King of the
Jews ?

10 (Yox he knew that the chief priests
had delivered him for envy.)

11 But ''the chief priests moved the people
that he should rather release Barabbas unto
them.

12 And Pilate answered, and said again
unto them. What will ye then that I shall
do unto him whom ye call the King of the
Jews ?

13 And they .cried out again. Crucify
him.

14 Then Pilate said unto them. Why,
what evil hath he done ? And they cried out
the more exceedingly. Crucify him,

15 IfsAnd so Pilate, willing to content the
people, released Barabbas unto them, and de-
livered Jesus, when he had scourged him, to
be crucified.

16 •'And the soldiers led him away into
hall, called Pretorium; and they call



the



together the whole band ;

17 And they clothed him with pul-ple, and
platted a crown of thorns, and put it about
his head,

846



and delivered to be crucified.

18 And began to salute him, Hail, King
of the Jews !

19 And they smote him on the head with
a reed, and did spit upon him, and bowing
their knees, worshipped him.

20 And when they had mocked him,
they took off the purple from him, and put
his own clothes on him, and led him out
to crucify him.

21 ' And they compel one Simon a Cyre-
nian, who passed by, coming out of the
country, the father of Alexander and Rufus,
to bear his cross.

22 ''And they bring him unto the place
Golgotha, which is, being interpreted, The
place of a skull.

23 'And they gave him to drink, wine
mingled with myrrh : but he received it
not.

24 And when they had crucified him,
"they parted his garments, casting lots upon
them, what every man should take.

^ 25 And "it was the third hour, and they
crucified him.

26 And °the superscription of his accu-
sation was written over, THE KING OF
THE JEWS.

27 And Pwith him they crucify two thieves,
the one on his right hand, and the other on
his left.

28 And the scripture was fulfilled, which
saith, 1 And he was numbered with the trans-
gressors.

29 And "' they that passed by, railed on
him, wagging their heads, and saying. Ah,
" thou that destroyest the temple, and build-
est it in three days,

30 Save thyself, and come down from the
cross.

31 Likewise also the chief priests mock-
ing, said among themselves with the scribes.
He saved others ; himself he cannot save.

32 Let Christ the King of Israel descend
now from the cross, that we may see and
beheve. And 'they that were crucified with
him, reviled.him.

33 And "when the sixth hour was come,
there was darkness over the whole land, until
the ninth hour.

34 And at the ninth hour Jesus cried with
a loud voice, saying, -^ Eloi, Eloi, lama sabach-
thani? which is, being interpreted. My God,
my God, why hast thou forsaken me ?

35 And some of them that stood by,
when they heard it, said. Behold, he calleth
Elias.

36 And yone ran and filled a sponge full
of vinegar, and put it on a reed, and "= gave
him to drink, saying. Let alone ; let us see
whether Elias will come to take him down.

The centurion's confession.

37 ''And Jesus cried with a loud voice,
and gave up the ghost;

38 And ''the vail of the temple was rent
in twain, from the top to the bottom.

39 H And" " when the centurion which
stood over against him, saw that he so cried
out, and gave up the ghost, he said. Truly
this man was the Son of God.

40 •• There were also women looking on
^ afar off, among whom was Mary Magda-
lene, and Mary the mother of James the less,
and of Joses, and Salome ;

41 Who also, when he was in Galilee,
'' followed him, and ministered unto him;
and many other women which came up with
him unto Jerusalem.

42 H eAnd now, when the even was come,
("because it was the preparation, that is, the
day before the sabbath,)

43 Joseph of Arimathea, an honourable
counsellor, which also -''waited for the king-
dom of God, came, and went in boldly uiito
Pilate, and craved the body of Jesus.

44 And Pilate marvelled if he were already
dead : and calling unto him the centurion, he
asked him whether he had been any while
dead.

45 And when he knew it of the centu-
rion, he gave the body to Joseph.

46 ' And he bought fine linen, and took
him down, and wrapped him in the linen,
and laid him in a sepulchre which was hewn
out of a rock, and rolled a stone unto the door
of the sepulchre.

47 And Mary Magdalene and Mary the
mother of Joses beheld where he was laid.

CHAP. XVL

1 An angel declareth the resurrection of Christ to three
women. 9 Christ hiviself appeareth to Mary Magda-
lene : 12 to two going into the country : 14 then to the
apostles, 15 whom he sendeth forth to preach the gos-
pel : 19 and ascendeih into heaven.

AND "• when the sabbath was past, Mary
Magdalene, and Mary the mother of
James, and Salome, ^ had bought sweet spices,
that they might come and anoint him.

2 "And very early in the morning, the
first day of the week, they came unto the
sepulchre at the rising of the sun :

3 And they said among themselves, "Who
shall roll us away the stone from tjie door
of the sepulchre?

4 (And when they looked, they saw that the
stone was rolled away,) for it was very great.

5 ■' And entering into the sepulchre, they
saw a young man sitting on the right side,
clothed in a long white garment; and they
were affrighted.

6 « And he saith unto them. Be not af-
frighted : ye seek Jesus of Nazareth, which

behold the place where they laid him.

7 But go your way, tell his disciples and
Peter, that he goeth before you into Galilee :
there shall ye see him, ''as he said unto you.

8 And they went out quickly, and fled
from the sepulchre ; for they trembled, and
were amazed : e neither said they any thing
to any man ; for they were afraid.

9 1[ Now when Jesus was risen early, the
first day of the week, ''he appeared first to
Mary Magdalene, ' out of whom he had cast
seven devils.

10 ^ And she went and told them that
had been with him, as they mourned and
wept.

11 'And they, when they had heard that
he was alive, and had been seen of her,
believed not.

7 And they had no child, because that
Elisabeth was barren ; and they both were
now well stricken in years.

8 And it came to pass, that, while he
executed the priest's office before God ''in
the order of his course,

9 According to the custom of the priest's
office, his lot was ' to burn incense when he
went into the temple of the Lord.

10 -"And the whole multitude of the
people were praying without, at the time of
incense.

11 And there appeared unto him an angel
of the Lord, standing on the right side of
"the altar of incense.

12 And when Zacharias saw Mm, " he was
troubled, and fear fell upon him.

13 But the angel said unto him. Fear not,
Zacharias : for thy prayer is heard; and thy
wife Elisabeth shall bear thee a son, and
p thou shalt call his name John.

14 And thou shalt have joy and gladness.
and imany shall rejoice at his birth.

15 For he shall be great in the sight of

nor strong drink ; and he shall be filled with
the Holy Ghost, »even from his mother's
womb.

16 'And many of the children of Israel
shall he turn to the Lord their God.

17 "And he shall go before him in the
spirit and power of Elias, to turn the
hearts of the fathers to the children, and
the disobedient ||to the wisdom of the just;
to make ready a people prepared for the
Lord.

18 And Zacharias said unto the angel,
y Whereby shall I know this? for I am an
old man, and my wife well stricken in
years.

19 And the angel answering, said unto
him, I am ^ Gabriel, that stand in the pre-
sence of God ; and am sent to speak unto
thee, and to shew thee these glad tidings.

20 And behold, *thou shalt be dumb,
and not able to speak, until the day that
these things shall be performed, because
thou believest not my words, which shall be
fulfilled in their season.

A- 21 And the people waited for Zacharias,
and marvelled that he tarried so long in the
temple.

22 And when he came out, he could
not speak unto them: and they perceived
that he had seen a vision in the temple;
for he beckoned unto them, and remained
speechless.

1 23 And it came to pass, that as soon as
■"the days of his ministration were accom-
plished, he departed to his &wn house.

24 And after those days his wife Elisa-
beth conceived, and hid herself five months,
saying,

25 Thus hath the Lord dealt with me in
the days wherein he looked on me, to "take
away my reproach among men.

26 And in the sixth month the angel
Gabriel was sent from God unto a city of
Galilee, named Nazareth,

27 To a virgin ^ espoused to a man whose
name was Joseph, of the house of David;
and the virgin's name was Mary.

28 And the angel came in unto her, and
said, "^Hail, thou that art || highly favoured,

among women.

Elizabeth saluted by Mary.

thy womb, and bring forth a son, and 'shalt
call his name JESUS.

32 He shall be great, ''and shall be called
the Son of the Highest ; and • the Lord God
shall give unto him the throne of his father
David.

33 ■" And he shall reign over the house of
Jacob for ever; and of his kingdom .there
shall be no end.

34 Then said Mary unto the angel. How
shall this be, see'ing I know not a man?

35 And the angel answered and said unto
her, » The Holy Ghost shall come upon
thee, and the power of the Highest shall
overshadow fliee : therefore also that holy
thing which shall be born of thee, shall be
called ° the Son of God.

36 And behold, thy cousin Ehsabeth, she
hath also conceived a son in her old age ; and
this is the sixth month with her who was cal-
led barren :

37 For p with God nothing shall be im-
possible.

38 And "Mary said. Behold the handmaid
of the Lord, be it unto me according to thy
word. And the angel departed from her.

39 And Mary arose in those days, and
went into the hill-country with haste, linto
a city of Juda,

40 And entered into the house of Zacha-
rias, and saluted Elisabeth.

41 And it came to pass, that when Elisa-
beth heard the salutation of Mary, the babe
leaped in her womb : and Elisabeth was filled
with the Holy Ghost.

42 And she spake out with a loud voice
and said, ■'Blessed art thou among women,
and blessed is the fruit of thy womb.

43 And whence is this to me, that the
mother of my Lord should come to me ?

44 For lo, as soon as the voice of thy
salutation sounded in mine ears, the babe,
leaped in my womb for joyt

45 And blessed is she (| that believed : for
there shall be a performance of those things
which were told her from the Lord..

46 And Mary said, = My soul doth mag-
nify the Lord,

47 And my spirit hath rejoiced in God my
Saviour.

48 For ' he hath regarded the low estate of
his handmaiden : for behold, from henceforth
"all generations shall call me blessed.

49 For he that is mighty ^ hath done to
me great things; and- "= holy is his name.

50 And yhis mercy is on them that fear
him, from generation to generation.

51 ^He hath shewed strength with his
arm; "^he hath scattered the proud in the
imagination of their hearts.

John Baptist's nativity and circumcision. S. LUKE.

52 ^ He hath put down the mighty from
their seats, and exalted them of low degree.

53 " He hath filled the hungry with good
things, and the rich he hath sent empty
away.

54 He hath holpen his servant Israel, *in
remembrance of Ms mercy ;

55 « As he spake to our fathers, to Abra-
ham, and to his seed, for ever.

56 And Mary abode with her about three
months, and returned to hel" own house.

57 Now Ehsabeth's full time came that
she should be delivered ; and she brought
forth a son.

58 And her neighbours and her cousins
heard how the Lord had shewed great mercy
upon her; and ^they rejoiced with her.

X 59 And it came to pass, that s on the
eighth day they came to circumcise the
child ; and they called him Zacharias, after
the name of his father.

60 And his mother answered and said,
•■Not so; but he shall be called John.

^ 61 And they said unto her. There is none
of thy kindred that is called by this name.

62 And they made • signs to his father,
how he would have him called.

63 And he asked for a writing-table, and
wrote, saying, 'His name is John. And they
marvelled all.

V 64 ''And his mouth was opened immedi-
ately, and his tongue loosed, and he spake,
and praised God.

65 And fear came on all that dwelt round
about them : and all these || sayings were
noised abroad throughout all 'the hill-coun-
try of Judea.

66 And all they that heard them, "'laid
them up in their hearts, saying. What man-
ner of child shall this be ! And "the hand of
the Lord was with him.

67 And his father Zacharias "was
filled with the Holy Ghost, and prophesied,
saying,

68 P Blessed be the Lord God of Israel ;
for ihe hath visited and redeemed his people,

69 ■'And hath raised up an horn of sal-
vation for us, in the house of his servant
David :

70 "As he spake by the mouth of his holy
prophets, which have been since the world
began .

71 That we should be saved from our
enemies, and from the hand of all that hate
us;

72 ' To perform the mercy promised to our
fathers, and to remember his holy covenant;

73 "The oath which he sware to our father
Abraham,

74 That . he would grant unto us, that

CHAP. IL



1 Augustus taxeth all the Roman empire. 6 The na-
tivity of Christ. 8 One angel relateth it to the shep-
herds : \^ many sing praises to God for it. 21 Christ
is circumcised. 22 Mary purified. 28 Simeon and
Anna prophesy of Christ : 40 who increaseth in
wisdom, 46 questioneth in the temple with the doctors,
51 and is obedient to his parents.

AND it came to pass in those days,
that there went out a decree from
Cesar Augustus, that all the world should be
[| taxed.

2. (^And this taxing was first made when
Cyrenius was governor of Syria.)

3 And all went to be taxed, every one
into his own city.

4 And Joseph also went up from Gahlee,
out of the city of Nazareth, into Judea,
unto •'the city of David, which is called
Bethlehem, (■= because he was of the house
and lineage of David,)

5 To be taxed with Mary •' his espoused
wife, being great with child.

6 And so it was, that while they were
there, the days were accomplished that she
should be delivered.

7 And « she brought forth her first-born
son, and wrapped him in swaddling-clothes,
and laid him in a manger ; because there was
no room for them in the inn.

8 And there were in the same country
shepherds abiding in the field, keeping [| watch
over their flock by night.

9 And lo, the angel of the Lord came
upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone
round about them ; ^and they were sore afraid.

10 And the angel said unto them. Fear
not : for behold, I bring you good tidings of
great joy, s which shall be to all people.
