sins but God alone ?

22 But when Jesus perceived their thoughts,
he answering, said unto them. What reason ye
in your hearts ?

23 Whether is easier, to say. Thy sins be
forgiven thee; or to say, Rise up and walk?

24 But that ye may know that the Son of
man hath power upon earth to forgive sins,

Matthew the publican called.

unto thee. Arise, and take up thy couch, and
go unto thine house.

25 And immediately he rose up before
them, and took up that whereon he lay, and
departed to his own house, glorifying God,

26 And they were all amazed, and they
glorified God, and were filled with fear, say-
ing. We have seen strange things to-day.

27 11° And after these things he went forth,
and saw a publican named Levi, sitting at
the receipt of custom : and he said unto him,
Follow me.

28 And he left all, rose up, and followed

'29 PAnd Levi made him a great feast in
his own house; and "J there was a great com-
pany of publicans, and of others that sat down
with them.

30 But their scribes and Pharisees mur-
mured against his disciples, saying. Why do
ye eat and drink with publicans and sinners ?

31 And Jesus answering, said unto them.
They that are whole need not a physician ;
but they that are sick.

32 ■" I came not to call the righteous, but
sinners to repentance.

33 IT And they said unto him, »Why do
the disciples of John fast often, and make
prayers, and likewise the disciples of the
Pharisees ; but thine eat and drink ?

34 And he said unto them. Can ye make
the children of the bride-chamber fast while
the bridegroom is with them?

35 But the days will come, when the
bridegroom shall be taken away from them,
and then shall they fast in those days.

36 IT ' And he spake also a parable unto
them : No man putteth a piece of a new gar-
ment upon an old : if otherwise, then both
the new maketh a rent, and the piece that
was taken out of the new, agreeth not with
the old.

37 And no man putteth new wine into old
bottles ; else the new wine will burst the
bottles, and be spilled, and the bottles shall

38 But new wine must be put into new
bottles, and both are preserved.

39 No man also having drunk old wine,
straightway desireth new : for he saith. The
old is better.


1 Christ reproveth the Pharisees' blindness about the ob-
servation of the sabbath, by scripture, reason, and mira-
cle : 13 chooseth twelve apostles : 17 healeth the diseased :
20 preacheth to Ms disciples before the people of bless-
ings and curses; 27 how we must love our enemies :
46 and join the obedience of good works to the hearing ^
of the word: lest in the evil day of temptation we fall
like an house built upon the face of the earth, without
any foundation.



Christ reproveth the Pharisees.

AND "it came to pass on the second
sabbath after the first, that he went
through the corn-fields ; and his disciples
plucked the ears of corn, and did eat, rub-
bing them in their hands.

2 And certain of the Pharisees said unto
them, Why do ye that ''which is not lawful
to do on the sabbath-days?

3 And Jesus answering them, said. Have
ye not read so much as this, " what David
did, when himself was anhungered, and they
which were with him ;

4 How he went into the house of God,
and did take and eat the shew-bread, and
gave also to them that were with him,
■^ which it is not lawful to eat but for the
priests alone?

5 And he said unto them, That the Son
of man is Lord also of the sabbath.

6 "And it came to pass also on another
sabbath, that he entered into the synagogue,
and taught : and there w as a man whose
right hand was withered :

7 And the scribes and Pharisees watched
him, whether he would heal on the sabbath-
day; that they might find an accusation
against him.

8 But he knew their thoughts, and said
to the man which had the withered hand.
Rise up, and stand forth in the midst. And
he arose, and stood forth.

9 Then said Jesus unto them, I will ask
you one thing; Is it lawful on the sabbath-
days to do good, or to do evil? to save life,
or to destroy it ?

10 And looking round about upon them
all, he said unto the man, Stretch forth thy
hand. And he did so : and his hand was
restored whole as the other.

11 And they were filled with madness;
and commu.ned one with another what they
might do to Jesus.

12 ^And it came to pass in those days,
that he went out into a mountain to pray,
and continued all night in prayer to God.

13 IT And when it was day, he called unto
him his disciples : s and of them he chose
twelve, whom also he named Apostles ;

14 Simon C' whom he also named Peter)
and Andrew his brother, James and John,
Philip and Bartholomew,

15 Matthew and Thomas, James the son
of Alpheus, and Simon called Zelotes,

16 And Judas ' the brother of James, and
Judas Iscariot, which also was the traitor.

17 II And he came down with them, and
stood in the plain ; and the company of his
disciples, ^ and a great multitude of people
out of all Judea and Jerusalem, and from

20 IT And he lifted up his eyes on his
disciples, and said, -Blessed he ye poor; for
yours is the kingdom of God.

21 "Blessed are ye that hunger now: for
ye shall be filled, p Blessed are ye that weep
now : for ye shall laugh.

22 1 Blessed are ye when men shall hate
you, and when they "■ shall separate jonfrom
their company, and shall reproach you, and
cast out your name as evil, for the Son of
man's sake.

23 = Rejoice ye in that day, and leap for
joy : for behold, your reward is great in
heaven : for * in the like manner did theii
fathers unto the prophets.

24 " But wo unto you ^ that are rich ! for
yye have received your consolation.

25 ^Wo unto you that are full ! for ye
shall hunger. =-Wo unto you that laugh
now! for ye shall mourn and weep.

26 ''Wo unto you, when all men shall
speak well of you ! for so did their fathers to
the false prophets. .

27 IF ■= But I say unto you which hear,
Love your enemies, do good to them which
hate you,

28 Bless them that curse you, and "^pray
for them which despitefully use you.

29 " And unto him that smiteth thee on
the one cheek, offer also the other; ^ and him
that taketh away thy cloak, forbid not to take
thy coat also.

30 s Give to every man that asketh of
thee ; and of him that taketh away thy
goods, ask them not again.

31 "^ And as ye would that men should do
to you, do ye also to them likewise.

32 ' For if ye love them which love you,
what thank have ye ? for sinners also love
those that love them.

33 And if ye do good to them which do
good to you, what thank have ye? for sin-
ners also do even the same.

34 ^ And if ye lend to them of whom ye
hope to receive, what thank have ye? for
sinners also lend to sinners, to receive as
much again.

35 But 'love ye your enemies, and do
good, and-nlend, hopin<r for nothing again;

and digged deep, and laid the foundation
on a rock : and when the flood arose, the
stream beat vehemently upon that house,
and could not shake it : for it was founded
upon a rock.

49 But he that heareth and doeth not, is

stream did beat vehemently, and immediately
it fell, and the ruin of that house was great.

The centurion's singular faith.

Nain : 19 ansivereth John's messengers with the de-
claration of his miracles : 24 testifieth to the people
what opinion he held of John : 30 inveigheth against
the Jews, who with neither the manners of John nor of
Jesus could be won : 36 and sheweth by occasion of
Mary Magdalene, how he is a friend to sinners, not to
maintain them in sins, but to forgive them their sins,
upon their faith and repentance.

NOW when he had ended all his sayings
in the audience of the people, "he en-
tered into Capernaum.

2 And a certain centurion's servant, who
was dear unto him, was sick, and ready to

3 And when he heard of Jesus, he sent
unto him the elders of the Jews, beseech-
ing him that he would come and heal his

4 And when they came to Jesus, they
besought him instantly, saying. That he was
worthy for whom he should do this :

5 For he loveth our nation, and he hath
built us a synagogue.

6 Then Jesus went with them. And
when he was now not far from the house,
the centurion sent friends to him, saying unto
him, Lord, trouble not thyself: for I am
not worthy that thou shouldest enter under
my roof;

7 Wherefore neither thought I myself
worthy to come unto thee ; but say in a word,
and my servant shall be healed.

8 For I also am a man set under autho-
rity, having under me soldiers, and I say unto
t one. Go, and he goeth ; and to another,
Come, and he cometh; and to my servant,
Db this, and he doeth it.

9 When Jesus heard these things, he mar-
velled at him, and turned him about and
said unto the people that followed him, I say
unto you, I have not found so great faith, no,
not in Israel.

10 And they that were sent, returning
to the house, found the servant whole that
had been sick.

11 IF And it came to pass the day after,
that he went into a city called Nain : and
many of his disciples went with him, and
much people.

12 Now when he came nigh to the gate
of the city, behold, there was a dead man
carried out, the only son of his mother, and
she was a widow : and much people of the
city was with her.

13 And when the Lord saw her, he had
compassion on her, and said unto her, Weep

14 And he came and touched the || bier :
and they that bare Mm stood still. And he
said. Young man, I say unto thee, ''Arise.

began to speak : and he delivered him to
his mother.

16 "And there came a fear on all: and
they glorified God, saying, "^That a great
prophet is risen up among us; and, ''That
God hath visited his people.

17 And this rumour of him went forth
throughout all Judea, and throughout all
the region round about.

18 f And the disciples of John shewed
him of all these things.

1911 And John, calling unto him two of his
disciples, sent them to Jesus, saying. Art
thou he that should come ? or look we for
another ?

20 When the men were come unto him,
they said, John Baptist hath sent us unto
thee, saying, Art thou he that should come ?
or look we for another ?

21 And in that same hour he cured many
of their infirmities, and plagues, and of evil
spirits ; and unto many that were blind he
gave sight.

22 s Then Jesus answering, said unto them,
Go your way, and tell John what things ye
have seen and heard; ''how that the blind
see, the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed,
the deaf hear, the dead are raised, 'to the
poor the gospel is preached.

23 And blessed is he, whosoever shall not
be offended in me.

24 IT "^ And when the messengers of John
were departed, he began to speak unto the
people concerning John, What went ye out
into the wilderness for to see ? A reed shaken
with the wind?

25 But what went ye out for to see?
A man clothed in soft raiment ? Behold, they
which are gorgeously apparelled, and live
delicately, are in kings' courts.

26 But what went ye out for to see ?
A prophet ? Yea, I say unto you, and much
more than a prophet.

27 This is he, of whom it is written, ' Be-
hold, I send my messenger before thy face,
which shall prepare thy way before thee.

28 For I say unto you. Among those that
are born of women, there is not a greater
prophet than John the Baptist : but *he that
is least in the kingdom of God, is greater
than he.

29 And all the people that heard him, and
the publicans, justified God, '"being baptized
with the baptism of John.

30 But the Pharisees and lawyers || reject-
ed "the counsel of God || against themselves,
being not baptized of him.

31 IT And the Lord said, °Whereunto
then shall I liken the men of this genera-
tion ? and to what are they like ?

A woman anointeth Chrisfs feet.

32 They are like unto children sitting in
the market-place, and calling one to another,
and saying, We have piped unto you, and ye
have not danced ; we have mourned to you,
and ye have not wept.

33 For pJohn the Baptist came neither
eating bread, nor drinking wine ; and ye say,
He hath a devil.

34 The Son of man is come eating and
drinking ; and ye say. Behold a gluttonous
man, and a wine-bibber, a friend of pub-
licans and sinners!

36 IT 'And one of the Pharisees desired
him that he would eat with him. And he
went into the Pharisee's house, and sat down
to meat.

37 And behold, a woman in the city, which
was a sinner, when she knew that Jesus sat at
meat in the Pharisee'? house, brought an ala-
baster-box of ointment,

38 And stood at his feet behind him
weeping, and began to wash his feet with
tears, and did wipe them with the hairs of
her head, and kissed his feet, and anointed
them with the ointment.

39 Now when the .Pharisee which had
bidden him, saw it, he spake within himself,
saying, =This man, if he were a prophet,
would have known who, and what manner ot
woman this is that toucheth him : for she is
a sinner.

40 And Jesus answering, said unto him,
Simon, I have somewhat to say unto thee.
And he saith. Master, say on.

41 There was a certain creditor, which
had two debtors : the one owed five hundred
II pence, and the other fifty.

42 And when they had nothing to pay,
he frankly forgave them both. Tell me
therefore^ which of thein will love him
most ?

43 Simon answered and said, I suppose
that he, to whom he forgave most. And he
said unto him. Thou hast rightly judged.

44 And he turned to the woman, and
said unto Simon, Seest thou this woman?
I entered into thine house, thou gavestme no
water for my feet : but she hath washed my
feet with tears, and wiped them with the
hairs of her head.

45 Thou gavest me no kiss : but this wo-
man, since the time I came in, hath not
ceased to kiss my feet.

46 ' Mine head with oil thou didst not
anoint: but this woman hath anointed
feet with ointment.

47 "Wherefore, I say unto thee, Her sins,
which are many, are forgiven ; for she loved

began to say within themselves, yWho is

50 And he said to the woman, '^Thy faith
hath saved thee ; go in peace.


3 Women minister unto Christ of their substance. 4
Christ, after he had preached from place to place,
attended with his apostles, propoundeth the parable of
the sower, 16 and of the candle : 21 declareth who are
his mother, and brethren : 22 rebuketh the winds : 26
casteth the legion of devils out of the man into the herd
of swine: 2H is rejected of the Gadarenes: 43 healeth
the woman of her bloody issue, 49 and raiseth from

went throughout every city and village,

the kingdom of God : and the twelve were
with him,

steward, and Susanna, and many others,
which ministered unto him of their substance.

4 IF = And when much people were ga-
thered together, and were come to him out
of every city, he spake by a, parable :

5 A sower went out to sow his seed : and
as he sowed, some fell by the way-side ; and
it was trodden down, and the fowls of the air
devoured it.

6 And some fell upon a rock; and as soon
as it was sprung up, it withered away, because
it lacked moisture.

7 And some fell among thorns ; and the
thorns sprang up with it, and choked it.

8 And other fell on good ground, and
sprang up, and bare fruit an hundred-fold.
And when he had said these things, he cried.
He that hath ears to hear, let him hear.

9 "^And his disciples asked him, saying,
What might this parable be ?

10 And he said. Unto you it is given to
know the mysteries of the kingdom of God :
but to others in parables; «that seeing they
might not see, and hearing they might not

22 TT ' Now it came to pass on a certain
day, that he went into a ship with his dis-
ciples: and he said unto them. Let us go
over unto the other side of the lake. And
they launched forth. *

23 But as they sailed, he fell asleep : and
there came down a storm of wind on the
lake ; and they were filled with water, and
were in jeopardy.

24 And they came to him, and awoke him,
saying. Master, Master, we perish. Then he
arose, and rebuked the wind, and the raging
of the water: and they ceased, and there
was a calm.

25 And he said unto them. Where is
your faith? And they being afraid, wondered,
saying one to another, What manner of man
is this ! for he commandeth even the winds
and water, and they obey him.
