He is circumcised.

11 ''For unto you is born this day, in the
city of David, 'a Savioifr, ''which is Christ
the Lord.

12 And this shall he a sign unto you; Ye
shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling-
clothes, lying in a manger.

13 'And suddenly there was with the angel
a multitude of the heavenly host praising
God, and saying,

14 ■" Glory to God in the highest, and on
earth "peace, "good will toward men.

lr& And it came to pass, as the angels
were gone away from them into heaven, f the
shepherds said one to another, Let us now go
even unto Bethlehem, and see this thing
which is come to pass, which the Lord hath
made known unto us.

16 And they came with haste, and found
Mary and Joseph, and the babe lying in a
manger.

17 And when they had seen it, they made
known abroad the saying which was told
them concerning this cKild.

18 And all they that heard it, wondered at
those things which were told them by the
shepherds.

19 pBut Mary kept all these things, and
pondered them in her heart.

20 And the shepherds returned, glorifying
and praising God for all the things that they
had heard and se.en, as it was told unto
them. ^

-Y 21 lAnd when eight days were accom-
plished for the circumcising of the child, his
name was called "^ JESUS, which wa-s so
named of the angel before he was conceived
in the womb.

""-^ 22 And when ' the days of her purifica-
tion according to the law of Moses were
accomplished, they brought him to Jerusa-
lem, to present him to the Lord ;

23 (As it is written in the law of the
Lord, 'Every male that openeth the womb
shall be called holy to the Lord ;)

24 And to ofi'er a Sacrifice according to
"that which is said in the law of the Lord,
A pair of turtle-doves, or two young pi-
geons,

-f 25 And behold, there was a man in
Jerusalem, whose name was Simebn; and the
same man was just and devout, ''waiting for
the consolation of Israel : and the Holy Ghost
was upon him.

26 And it was revealed unto him by the
Holy Ghost, that he should, not y.see death,
before he had seen the Lord's Christ.

27 And he came ^by the Spirit into the
temple ; and when the parents brought in the
child Jesus, to do for him after the custom of
the law,

Simeon and Annans prophecy.

28 Then took he him up in his arms, and
blessed God, and said,

29 Lord, ''now lettest thou thy servant
depart in peace, according to thy Avord :

30 For mine eyes ^ have seen thy salva-
tion,

31 Which thou hast prepared before the
face of all people ;

32 " A light to lighten the Gentiles, and
the glory of thy people Israel.

33 And Joseph and his mother marvelled
at those things which were spoken of him.

34 And Simeon blessed them, and said
unto Mary his mother. Behold, this child is
set for the ''fall and rising again of many in
Israel ; and for ^ a sign which shall be spoken
against ;

35 (Yea, '"a sword shall pierce through thy
own soul also ;) that the thoughts of many
hearts may be revealed.

36 And there was one Anna, a prophet-
ess, the daughter of Phanuel, of the tribe of
Aser : she was of a great age, and had lived
with an husband seven years from her vir-
ginity ;

37 And she was a widow of about four-
score and four years, which departed not from
the temple, but served God with fastings and
prayers s night and day.

38 And she coming in that instant, gave
thanks likewise unto the Lord, and spake of
him to all them that '■looked for redemption
in II Jerusalem.

39 And when they had performed all
things according to the law of the Lord, they
returned into Galilee, to their own city Naza-
reth.

40 ' And the child grew, and waxed strong
in spirit, filled with wisdom ; and the grace
of God was upon him.

41 Now his parents' went to Jerusalem
''every year at the feast of the passover,

42 And when he was twelve years old,
they went up to Jerusalem after the custom
of the feast.

43 And when they had fulfilled the days,
as they returned, the child Jesus tarried
behind in Jerusalem ; and Joseph and his
mother knew not of it.

44 But they, supposing him to have been
in the company, went a day's journey ; and
they sought him among their kinsfolk and
acquaintance.

45 And when they found him not, they
turned back again to Jerusalem, seeking
him.

46 And it came to pass, that after three
days they found him in the temple, sittmg m
the midst of the doctors, both hearmg them,
and asking them questions.

The preaching and baptism of John.

47 And ' all that heard him were aston-
ished at his understanding and answers.

48 And when they saw him, they were
amazed : and his mother said unto him, Son,
why hast thou thus dealt with us ? behold,
thy father aind I have sought thee sorrow-
ing.

49 And he said unto them. How is it that
ye sought me ? wist ye not that I must be
about "my Father's business?

50 And "they understood not the saying
which he spake unto them.

51 And he went down with them, and
came to Nazareth, and was subj e ct unto them :
but his mother °kept all these sayings in her
heart.

52 And Jesus p increased in wisdom and
II stature, and in favour with God and man,

1 The preaching and baptism of John. 15 His testimony
of Christ. 20 Herod imprisoneth John. 21 Christ
baptized, receiveth testimony from heaven. 23 The age,
and genealogy of Christ from Joseph upwards.

ATOW in the fifteenth year of the reign of
_L\| Tiberius Cesar, Pontius -Pilate being
governor of Judea, and Herod being tetrarch
of Galilee, and his brother Philip tetrarch of
Iturea and of the region of Trachonitis, and
Lysanias the tetrarch of Abilene,

2 ^ Annas and Caiaphas being the high
priests, the word of God came unto John the
son of Zacharias in the wilderness.

3 •'And he came into all the country about
Jordan, preaching the baptism of repentance,
■^for the remission of sins ;

4 As it is written in the book of the words
of Esaias the prophet, saying, '' The voice of
one crying in the wilderness. Prepare ye the
way of the Lord, make his paths straight.

5 Every valley shall be filled, and every
mountain and hill shall be brought low ; and

• the crooked shall be made straight, and the
rough ways shall he made smooth ;

6 And ^ all flesh shall see the salvation of
God.

7 Then said he to the multitude that came
forth to be baptized of him, ^O generation of
vipers, who hath warned you to flee from the
wrath to come?

8 Bring forth therefore fruits ]| worthy of
repentance, and begin not to say within
yourselves. We have Abraham to our father :
for I say unto you. That' God is able of
these stones to raise up children unto Abra-
ham.

9 And now also the axe is laid unto the
root of the trees: severytree therefore which
bringeth not forth good fruit, is hewn down,
and cast into the fire.

His testimony of Christ.

10 And the people asked him, saying,
''What shall we do then?

11 He answereth and saith unto them, 'He
that hath two coats, let him impart to him
that hath none ; and he that hath meat, let
him do likewise.

12 Then ■'came also publicans to be bap-
tized, and said unto him, Master, what shall
we do?

13 And he said unto them, ' Exact no
more than that whi(ih is appointed you.

14 And the soldiers likewise demanded of
him, saying. And what shah we do ? And
he said unto them, || Do violence to no man,
"" neither accuse any falsely ; and be content
with your | wages.

15 And as the people were |j in expecta-
tion, and all men || mused in their hearts of
John, whether he were the Christ, or not ;

16 John answered, saying unto them all,
" I indeed baptize you with water ; but one
mightier than I cometh, the latchet of whose
shoes I am not worthy to unloose : he shall
baptize you with the Holy Ghost, and with
fire :

17 Whose fan is in his hand, and he will
thoroughly purge his floor, and "will gather
the wheat into his garner ; but the chafi" he
will burn with fire unquenchable.

18 And many other things in his exhorta-
tion preached he unto the people.

19 r But Herod the tetrarch, being re-
proved by him for Herodias his brother
Philip's wife, and for all the evils which
Herod had done,

20 Added yet this above all, that he shut
up John in prison.

21 Now when all the people were bap-
tized, 1 it came to pass, that Jesus also being
baptized, and praying,the heaven was opened,

22 And the Holy Ghost descended in a
bodily shape like adove upon him, and a voice
came from heaven, which said. Thou art my
beloved Son ; in thee I am well pleased. _3,

His temptation and fasting.

when they were ended, he afterward hun-
gered.

3 And the devil said unto him, If thou be
the Son of God, command this stone that it
be made bread.

4 And Jesus answered him, saying, ^ It is
written, That man shall not live by bread
■alone, but by every word of God.

5 And the devil, taking him up into an
high mountain, shewed unto him all the
kingdoms of the world in a moment of time.

6 And the devil said unto him, All this
power will I give thee, and the glory of them :
for «that is delivered unto me, and to whom-
soever I will, I give it.

7 If thou therefore wilt ][ worship me, all
shall be thine.

8 And Jesus answered and said unto him,
Get thee behind me, Satan : for '"it is writ-
ten. Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God,
and him only shalt thou serve.

9 ff And he brought him to Jerusalem, and
set him on a pinnacle of the temple, and said
unto him. If thou be the Son of God, cast
thyself down from hence.

10 For ''rt is written. He shall give his
angels charge over thee, to keep thee :

11 And in their hands they shall bear thee
up, lest at any time thou dash thy foot against
a stone.

12 And Jesus answering, said unto him,
'It is said. Thou shalt not tempt the Lord
thy God.

13 And when the devil had ended all the
temptation, he departed from him ''for a
season.

14 IT ' And Jesus returned ■" in the power
of the Spirit into ° Galilee : and there went
out a fame of him through all the region
round about.

15 And he taught in their synagogues,
being glorified of all. -.

16 IT And he came to ° Nazareth, where he
had been brought up : and, as his custom was,
phe went into the synagogue on the sabbath-
day, and stood up for to read.

17 And there was delivered unto him the
book of the prophet Esaias-. And when he
had opened the book, he found the place
where it was written,

18 1 The Spirit of the Lord is upon me,
because he hath anointed me to preach the
gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal
the broken-hearted, to preach deliverance to
the captives, and recovering of sight to the
blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised,

1 9 To preach the acceptable year of the
Lord.

20 And he closed the book, and he gave
it again to the minister, and sat down. And

Christ casteth out a devil.

the eyes of all them that were in the syna-
gogue were fastened on him.
< 21 And Tie began to say unto them, This
day is this scripture fulfilled in your ears.

22 And all bare him witness, and ■■ won-
dered at the gracious words which proceeded
out of his mouth. And they said, =Is not
this Joseph's son ?

23 And he said unto them, Ye will surely
say unto me this proverb, Physician, heal
thyself: whatsoever we have heard done in
'Capernaum, do also here in "thy country.

24 And he said. Verily I say unto you,
No ^ prophet is accepted in his own coun-
try.

25 But I tell you of a truth, ymany widows
were in Israel in the days of Elias, when the
heaven was shut up three years and six
months, when great famine was throughout
all the land :

26 But unto none of them was Elias sent,
save unto Sarepta, a city of Sidon, unto a
woman that was a widow.

27 ^And many lepers were in Israel in
the time of Eliseus the prophet ; and none
of them was cleansed, saving 'Naaraan the
Syrian.

28 And all they in the synagogue, when
they heard these things, were filled with
wrath,

29 And rose up, and thrust him out of the
city, and led him unto the || brow of the hill,
(whereon their city was built,) that they might
cast him down headlong.

30 But he, ''passing through the midst of
them, went his way,

31 And ''came down to Capernaum, a city
of Gahlee, and taught them on the sabbath-
days.

32 And they were astonished at his doc-
trine : '^for his word was with power.

-Y 33 IT "^ And in the synagogue there was a
' man which had a spirit of an unclean devil ;
and he cried out with a loud voice,

34 Saying, || Let us alone ; what have we
to do with thee, thou Jesus of Nazareth? art
thou come to destroy us? "I know thee who
thou art, '"the Holy One of God.

35 And Jesus rebuked him, saying. Hold
thy peace, and come out of him. And when
the devil had thrown him in the midst, he
came out of him, and hurt him not.

36 And they were all amazed, and spake
among themselves, saying. What a word is
this ! for with authority and power he com-
mandeth the unclean spirits, and they come
out.

37 And the fame of him went out into
every place of the country round about.

38 1 f And he arose out of the synagogue,

CHAP. V. 1

1 Christ teacheth the people out of Peter's ship : 4 in a
miraculous taking of Jishes, sheweth how he will make
him and his partners fishers of men . 12 cleanseth the
leper : 16 prayeth in the wilderness : 18 healeth one
sick of the palsy : 27 calleth Matthew the publican :
29 eateth with sinners, as being the physician of souls :
^^ foretellelh the fastings and afflictions of the apostles
after his asce7ision : 36 and like7ieth faint-hearted and
weak disciples to old'bottles and worn garments.

AND ^it came to pass, that as the people
pressed upon him to hear the word of
God, he stood by the lake of Gennesaret,

2 And saw two ships standing by the lake :
but the fishermen were gone out of them, and
were washing their nets.

3 And he entered into one of the ships,
which was Simon's, and prayed him that he
would thrust out a little from the land. And
he sat down, and taught the people out of
the ship.

4 Now when he had left speaking, he
said unto Simon, ''Launch out into the deep,
and let down your nets for a draught.

5 And Simon answering, said unto him.
Master, we have toiled all the night, and
have taken nothing ; nevertheless, at thy
word I will let down the net.

6 And when they had this done, they in-
closed a great multitude of fishes : and their
net brake.

7 And they beckoned unto their partners,
which were in the other ship, that tney should
come and help them. And they came, and
filled both the ships, so that they began to'
sink.

8 When Simon Peter saw it, he fell down

Christ cleanseth a leper,

at Jesus' knees, saying, « Depart from me ;
for I am a sinful man, O Lord.

9 For he was astonished, and all that were
with him, at the draught of the fishes which
they had taken :

10 And so was also James and John the
sons of Zebedee, which were partners with
Simon. And Jesus said unto Simon, Fear
not : '' from henceforth thou shalt catch
men.

11 And when they had brought their
ships to land, ^they forsook all, and followed

/im.
12 H '"And it came to pass, when he was in
a certain city, behold, a man full of leprosy :
who seeing Jesus, fell on his face, and be-
sought him, saying. Lord, if thou wilt, thou
canst make me clean.

13 And he put forth Ms hand and touched
him, saying, I will : Be thou clean. And im-
mediately the leprosy departed from him.

14 eAnd he charged him to tell no man :
but go, and shew thyself to the priest, and
offer for thy cleansing, ^ according as Moses
commanded, for a testimony unto them.

15 But so much the more went there a
fame abroad of him : 'and great multitudes
came together to hear and to be healed by
him of their infirmities.

*-4— 16 ^''And he withdraw himself into the
' wilderness, and prayed.

17 And it came to pass on a certain day,

as he was teaching, that there were Pharisees

and doctors of the law sitting by, which were

come out of every town of Galilee, and

Judea, and Jerusalem : and the power of the

, Lord was present to heal them.

■^ 18 IT' And behold, men brought in a bed a

/' man which was taken with a palsy : and they

sought means to bring him in, and to lay him

before him.

19 And when they could not find by what
way they might bring him in, because of the
multitude, they went upon the house-top, and
let him down through the tiling with his
couch, into the midst before Jesus.

20 And when he saw their faith, he said
unto him, Man, thy sins are forgiven thee.

21 ™ And the scribes and the Pharisees be-
gan to reason, saying. Who is this which
speaketh blasphemies ? ° Who can forgive
