of the Gadarenes, which is over against

clothes, neither abode in any house, but in
the tombs.

28 When he saw Jesus, he cried out, and
fell down before him, and with a loud voice
said. What have I to do with thee, Jesus,
thou Son of God most high ? I beseech thee
torment me not.

29 (For he had commanded the unclean
spirit to come out of the man. For often-
times it had caught him : and he was kept
bound with chains, and in fetters ; and he
brake the bands, and was driven of the devil
into the wilderness.)

30 And Jesus asked him, saying, What
is thy name ? And he said, Legion : because
many devils were entered into him.

31 And they besought him, that he would
not command them to go out "into the deep.

32 And there was there an herd of many
swine feeding on the mountain: and they
besought him that he would suffer them to
enter into them. And he suffered them,

33 Then went the devils out of the man,
and entered into the swine : and the herd
ran violently down a steep place into the
lake, and were choked.

34 When they that fed them saw what was
done, they fled, and went and told it in the
city and in the country.

35 Then they went out to see what was
done ; and came to Jesus, and found the man
out of whom the devils were departed, sitting
at the feet of Jesus, clothed, and in his right
mind : and they were afraid.

36 They also which saw it, told them by
what means he that was possessed of the
devils was healed.

3711 "Then the whole multitude of the
country of the Gadarenes round about, p be-
souglft him to depart from them ; for they
were taken with great fear. And he went up
into the ship, and returned back again.

38 Now, ithe man out of whom the devils
were departed, besought him that he might
be with him. But Jesus sent him away, say-

39 Return to thine own house, and shew
how great things God hath done unto thee.
And he went his way and published through-
out the whole city, how great things Jesus
had done unto him.

40 And it came to pass, that, when Jesus
was returned, the people gladly received him :
for they were all waiting for him.

41 't'^And behold, there came a man
named Jairus, and he was a ruler of the
synagogue : and he fell down at Jesus' feet,
and besought him that he would come into
his house:

But as he went, the people thronged him.

43 H ^ And a woman having an issue of
blood twelve years, which had spent all her
living upon physicians, neither could bo
healed of any,

44 Came behind him and touched the
border of his garment : and immediately her
issue of blood stanched.

45 And Jesus said. Who touched me ?
When all denied, Peter, and they that were
with him, said. Master, the multitude throng
thee, and press thee, and sayest thou, Who
touched me?

46 And Jesus said. Somebody hath touch-
ed me : for I perceive that 'virtue is gone
out of me.

47 And when the woman saw that she
was not hid, she came trembling, and falling
down before him, she declared unto him be-
fore all the people for what cause . she had
touched him, and how she was healed im-

48 And. he said unto her. Daughter, be
of good comfort: thy faith hath made thee
whole; go in peace.

49 H " While he yet spake, there cometh
one from the ruler of the synagogue's house,
saying to him. Thy daughter is dead : trouble
not the Master.

50 But when Jesus heard it, he answered
him, saying. Fear not : believe only, and she
shall be made whole.

51 And when he came into the house, he
suffered no man to go in, save Peter, and
James, and John, and the father and the
mother of the maiden.

52 And all wept and bewailed her : but
he said. Weep not: she is not dead, ^but

53 And they laughed him to scorn," know-
ing that she was dead.

54 And he put them all out, and took
her by the hand, and called, saying, Maid,
y arise,

55 And her spirit came again, and she
arose straightway: and he commanded to
give her meat.

56 And her parents were astonished : but
^he charged them that they should tell no
man what was done.


1 Christ sendeth his apostles to work miracles, and to
preach. 7 Herod desired to see Christ. 17 Christ
feedeth Jive thousand : 18 inquireth what opinion the
world had of him : foretelleth his passion : 23 pro-
poseth to all the pattern of his patience. 28 The
transfiguration. 37 He healeth the lunatic : 43 again
forewarneth his disciples of his passion : 46 commend-
eth humility: 51 hiddeth them to shew mildness towards
all, without desire of revenge. 57 Divers would follow
him, hut upon conditions.



Christ sendeth out the twelve,

THEN "he called his twelve disciples
together, and gave them power and
authority over all devils, and to cure dis-

2 And ''he sent them to preach the king-
dom of God, and to heal the sick.

3 " And he said unto them, Take nothing
for your journey, neither staves, nor scrip,
neither bread, neither money ; neither have
two coats apiece.

4 ^ And whatsoever house ye enter into,
there abide, and thence depart.

5 *And whosoever will not receive you,
when ye go out of that city, *" shake off" the
very dust from your feet for a testimony
against them.

6 f And they departed, and went through
the towns, preaching the gospel, and healing
every where.

7 IT '' Now Herod the tetrarch heard of
all that was done by him : and he was per-
plexed, because that it was said of some, that
John was risen from the dead ;

8 And of some, that Elias had appeared ;
and of others, that one of the old prophets
was risen again.

9 And Herod said, John have I beheaded ;
but who is this of whom I hear such things ?
'And he desired to see him.

10 IT ''And the apostles, when they were
returned, told him all that they had done.
' And he took them, and went aside pri-
vately into a desert place, belonging to the
city called Bethsaida.

11 And the people, when they knew it,
followed him* and he received them, and
spake unto them of the kingdom of God,
and healed them that had need of healing.

12 ™And when the day began to wear
away, then came the twelve, and said unto
him, Send the multitude away, that they may
go into the towns and country round about,
a:nd lodge, and get victuals : for we are here
in a desert place.

13 But he said unto them. Give ye them
to eat. And they said. We have no more
but five loaves and two fishes ; except we
should go and buy meat for all this people.

14 (For they were about five thousand
men.) And he said to his disciples. Make
them sit down by fifties in a company.

15 And they did so, and made them all
sit down.

16 Then he took the five loaves, and the
two fishes, and looking up to heaven, he
blessed them, and brake, and gave to the
disciples to set before the multitude.

17 And they did eat, and were all filled :
and there was. taken up of fragments that
remained to them twelve baskets.

His transfiguration,

18 1["And it came to pass, as he was alone
praying, his disciples were with him ; and he
asked them, saying, "Whom say the people
that I am?

19 They answering, said, "John the Bap-
tist ; but some say, Elias ; and others say,
that one of the old prophets is risen again.

20 He said unto them, But whom say ye
that I am ? p Peter answering, said. The
Christ of God.

21 "lAnd he straitly charged them, and
commanded them to tell no man that thing,

22 Saying, 'The Son of man must suffer
manj"" things, and be rejected of the elders,
and chief priests, and scribes, and be slain,
and be raised the third day. -f

23 IT' And he said to them all. If any T/iaw
will come after me, let him deny himself,
and take up his cross daily, and follow me.

24 For whosoever will save his life, shall
lose it : but whosoever will lose his life for
my sake, the same shall save it.

25 'For what is a man advantaged, if he
gain the whole world, and lose himself, or
be cast away?

26 " For whosoever shall be ashamed of
me, and of my words, of him shall the Son
of man be ashamed, when he shall come in -
his own glory, and in his Father's, and of
the holy angels.

27 ^ But I tell you of a truth, there be
some standing here which shall not taste of
death till they see the kingdom of God.

28 IT y And it came to pass, about an eight
days after these || sayings, he took Peter, and •
John, and James, and went up into a mountain

to pray.

29 And as he prayed, the fashion of his
countenance was altered, and his raiment
was white and glistering.

30 And behold, there talked with him
two men, which were Moses and Elias :

31 Who appeared in glory, and spake of
his decease which he should accomplish at

32 But Peter and they that were with
him ^were heavy with sleep : and when they
were awake, they saw his glory, a1!d the two
men that stood with him.

33 And it came to pass, as they departed
from him, Peter said unto Jesus, Master, it
is good for us to be here: and let us make
three tabernacles ; one for thee, and one for
Moses, and one for Elias : not knowing what
he said.

34 While he thus spake, there came a
cloud, and overshadowed them : and they
feared as they entered into the cloud.

35 And there came a voice out of the cloud,
saying, ''This is my beloved Son : ''hear him.


Christ healeth a lunatic.

36 And when the voice was past, Jesus
was found alone. ■'And they kept it close,
and told no man in those days any of those
things which they had seen.
\ 37 H •* And it came to pass, that on the
next day, Avhen they were come down from
the hill, much people met him.

38 And behold, a man of the company
cried out, saying. Master, I beseech thee
look upon my son : for he is mine only

39 And lo, a spirit taketh him, and he
suddenly crieth out; and it teareth him that
he foameth again, and bruising him, hardly
departeth from him.

40 And I besought thy disciples to cast
him out, and they could not.

41 And Jesus answering, said, O faithless
and perverse generation^ how long shall I be
with you, and suffer you? Bring thy son

42 And as he was yet a coming, the devil
threw him down, and tare him. And Jesus
rebuked the unclean spirit, and healed the
child, and delivered him again to his father.

^ 43 IT And they .were all amazed at the
mighty power of God. But while they won-
dered every one at all things which Jesus
did, he said unto his disciples,

44 ^ Let these sayings sink down into your
ears : for the Son of man shall be delivered
into the hands of men.

45 '"But they understood not this saying,
and it was hid from them, that they per-
ceived it not : and they feared to ask him
of that saying.

46 IF s Then there arose a reasoning among
them, which of them should be greatest.

47 And Jesus perceiving the thought of
their heart, took a child, and set him by

48 And said unto them, ''Whosoever shall
receive this child in my name, receiveth me;
ind whosoever shall receive me, receiveth
him that sent me : ' for he that is least
among you all, the same shall be great.

49 H ■'And John answered and said. Mas-
ter, we s*vv one casting out devils in thy
name ; and we forbade him, because he fol-
loweth not with us.

50 And Jesus said unto him, Forbid Mm
not: for 'he that is not against us, is for

51 IT And it came to pass, when the time
was come that "he should be received up, he
steadfastly set his face to go to Jerusalem,

52 And sent messengers before his face :
and they went and entered into a village of
the Samaritans, to make ready for him.

follow thee ; but let me first go bid them

AFTER these things, the Lord appointed
other seventy also, and "sent them two
and two before his face into every city, and
place, whither he himself would come.

2 Therefore said he unto them, '' The
harvest truly is great, but the labourers are
few : " pray ye therefore the Lord of the
harvest, that he would send forth labourers
into his harvest.

forth as lambs among wolves.

peace shall rest upon it : if not, it shall turn

and drinking such things as they give : for
''the labourer is worthy of his hire. Go not

notwithstanding, be ye sure of this, that the

joy, saying. Lord, even the devils are subject

19 Behold, ''I give unto you power to
tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all

by any means hurt you.

20 Notwithstanding, in this rejoice not,
that the spirits are subject unto you ; but

The parable of the good Samaritan.

24 For I tell you, ^ that many prophets
and kings have desired to see those things
which ye see, and have not seen them ; and
to hear those things which ye hear, and have
not heard them.

25 IT And behold, a certain lawyer stood
up, and tempted him, saying, 'Master, what
shall I do to inherit eternal life?

26 He said unto him. What is written in
the law? how readest thou?

27 And he answering said, •'Thou shalt
love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and
with all thy soul, and with all thy strength,
and with all thy mind ; and 'thy neighbour as

28 And he said unto him. Thou hast an-
swered right: this do, and ""thou shalt live.

29 But he, willing to "justify himself, said
unto Jesus, And who is ray neighbour?

30 And Jesus answering, said, A certain
man went down from Jerusalem to Jericho,
and fell among thieves, which stripped him of
his raiment, and wounded him, and departed,
leaving him half dead.

31 And by chance there came down a
certain priest that way; and when he saw
him, °he passed by on the other side.

32 And likewise a Levite, when he was
at the place, came and looked on him, and
passed by on the other side.

33 But a certain p Samaritan, as he jour-
neyed, came where he was : and when he saw
him, he had compassion on him,

34 And went to him, and bound up his
wounds, pouring in oil and wine, and set him
on his own beast, and brought him to an inn,
and took care of him.

35 And on the morrow, when he departed,
he took out two || pence, and gave them to the
host, and said unto him. Take care of him :
and whatsoever thou spendest more, when 1
I come again, I will repay thee.

36 Which now of these three, thinkest
thou, was neighbour unto him that fell
among the thieves?

37 And he said. He that shewed mercy on
him. Then said Jesus unto him. Go, and
do thou likewise.

38 H Now it came to pass, as they went,
that he entered into a certain village : and a
certain woman, named i Martha, received him
into her house.

39 And she had a sister called Mary,
'which also ^sat at Jesus' feet, and heard his

40 But Martha was cumbered about much
serving, and came to him, and said, Lord,
dost thou not care that my sister hath left me
to serve alone ? bid her therefore that she

help me.



Christ teacheth to pray.

41 And Jesus answered, and said unto
her, Martha, Martha, thou art careful, and
troubled about many things :

42 But* one thing is needful; and Mary
hath chosen that good part, which shall not
be taken away from her.


1 Christ teacheth to pray, and that instantly : 11 assur-
ing that God so will give us good things. 14 He, cast-
ing out a dumb devil, rebuketh the blasphemous Pha-
risees : 28 and sheweth who are blessed : 29 preacheth
to the people, 37 and reprchendeth the outward shew
of holiness in the Pharisees, scribes, a?id lawyers.

AND it came to pass, that as he was
praying in a certain place, when he
ceased, one of his disciples said unto him,
Lord, teach us to pray, as John also taught
his disciples.

2 And he said unto them. When ye pray,
say, ''Our Father which art in heaven, Hal-
lowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come.
Thy will be done, as in heaven, so in earth.

3 Give us || day by day our daily bread.

4 And forgive us our sins ; for we also for-
give every one that is indebted to us. And
lead us not into temptation; but deliver us
from evil.

5 And he said unto them, Which of you
shall have a friend, and shall go unto him at
midnight, and say unto him. Friend, lend me
three loaves :

6 For a friend of mine || in his journey is
come to me, and I have nothing to set before

7 And he from within shall answer and
say. Trouble me not: the door is now shut,
and my children are with me in bed ; I can-
not rise and give thee.

8 I say unto you, ''Though he will not
rise and give him, because he is his friend, yet
because of his importunity he will rise and
