devil was gone out, the dumb spake ; and
the people wondered.

15 But some of them said, '"He casteth
out devils through f Beelzebub, the chief of
the devils.

16 And others tempting him, e sought of
him a sign from heaven.

17 f-But ' he, knowing their thoughts, said
unto them, Every kingdom divided against
itself, is brought to desolation ; and a house
divided against a house, falleth.

18 If Satan also be divided against him-
self, how shall his kingdom stand? because
ye say that I cast out devils through Beel-

' 19 And if I by Beelzebub cast out devils,
by whom do your sons cast them out ? there-
fore shall they be your judges.

20 But if I -"^ with the finger of God cast
out devils, no doubt the kingdom of God is
come upon you.

21 'When a strong man armed keepeth
his palace, his goods are in peace :

22 But "' when a stronger than he shall
come upon him, and overcome him, he taketh
from him all his armour wherein he trusted,
and divideth his spoils.

23 " He that is not with me is against
me : and he that gathereth not with me scat-

24 °When the unclean spirit is gone out
of a man, he walketh through dry places,
seeking rest: and finding none, he saith, I
will return unto my house whence I came

25 And when he cometh, he findeth it
swept and garnished.

26 Then goeth he, and taketh to him
seven other spirits more wicked than himself;
and they enter in, and dwell there: and Pthe
last state of that man is worse than the first.

27 HAnd it came to pass, as he spake
these things, a certain woman of the company
lifted up her voice, and said unto him, i Bles-
sed is the womb that bare thee, and the paps
which thou hast sucked.

28 But he said, Yea, "■ rather blessed are
they that hear the word of God, and keep

29 H^ And when the people were gathered
thick together, he began to say. This is an
'evil gen'eration : they seek a sign ; and there
shall no sign be given it, but the sign of
Jonas the prophet.

30 For as 'Jonas was a sign unto the
Ninevites, so shall also the Son of man be to
this generation.

31 i-The queen of the south shall rise up
in the judgment with the men of this gene-
ration, and condemn them : for she came from

the utmost parts of the earth, to hear the
wisdom of Solomon ; and behold, a greater
than Solomon is here.

32 The men of Nineveh shall rise up in
the judgment with this generation, and shall
condemn it: for ^they repented at the preach-
ing of Jonas ; and behold, a greater than
Jonas is here.

33 yNo man when he hath lighted a
candle, putteth it in a secret place, neither
under a || bushel, but on a candlestick, that
Jthey which come in may see the light.

^ 34 ^The light- of the body is the eye:
' therefore when thine eye is single, thy whole
body also is full of light ; but when thine eye
is evil, thy body also is full of darkness.

35 Take heed therefore, that the light
which is in thee be not darkness.

36 If thy whole body therefore be full of
light, having no part dark, the whole shall be
full of light ; as when tthe bright shining of
a candle doth give thee light.

37 H And as he spake, a certain Pharisee
besought him to dine w;ith him : and he went
in and sat down to meat.

38 And ''when the Pharisee saw it, he
marvelled that he had not first washed before

39 ^ And the Lord said unto him. Now do
ye- Pharisees make clean the outside of the
cup and the platter; but •= your inward part
is full of: ravening and wickedness.

40 Ye fools, did not he that made that
which is without, make that which is within

. 41 ^ But rather give alms || of such things
as ye have ; and behold, all things are clean
unto you.

42 ^ But wo unto you, Pharisees ! for ye
tithe mint, and»riie, and all manner of herbs,
and pass over judgment and the love of
God : these ought ye to have done, and not
to leave the other undone.

said unto him, Master, thus saying, thou

ous to be borne, and ye yourselves touch not

Christ teacheth to avoid^hypocrisy.

48 Truly ye bear witness, that ye allow
the deeds of your fathers : for they indeed
killed them, and ye build their sepulchres.

49 Therefore also said the wisdom of God,
'I will send them prophets and apostles, and
some of them they shall slay and persecute :

50 That the blood of all the prophets,
which was shed from the foundation of the
world, may be required of this generation ;

51 ""From the blood of Abel unto "the
blood of Zacharias, which perished between
the altar and the temple : verily, I say unto
you, It shall be required of this generation.

52 °Wo unto you, lawyers! for ye have
taken away the key of knowledge: ye entered
not in yourselves, and them that were enter-
ing in ye || hindered.

53 And as he said these things unto them,
the scribes and the Pharisees began to urge
him vehemently, and to provoke him to speak
of many things ;

54 Laying wait for him, and p seeking to
catch something out of his mouth, that they
might accuse him.


I Christ preachetli to his disciples to avoid hypocrisy, and
fearfulness in publishing his doctrine : 13 warneth the
people to beware of covetousness, by the parable of the
ricfeman who set up greater barns, 22 We must not
be over careful of earthly things, 31 but seek the king-
dom of God, 33 give cdms, 36 be ready at a knock to
open to our Lord whensoever he cometh. 41 Christ's
ministers are to see to their charge, 49 and look for
persecution. 54 The people must take this time of
grace, 58 because it is a fearful thing to die,without

IN *the mean time, when there were ga-
thered together an innumerable multitude
of people, insomuch that they trode one upon
another, he began to say unto his disciples
first of all, ^ Beware ye of the leaven of the
Pharisees, which is hypocrisy.

2 "For there is nothing covered, that shall
not be revealed ; neither hid, that shall not
be known.

3 Therefore, whatsoever ye have spoken
in darkness, shall be heard in the light;
and that which ye have spoken in the ear in
closets, shall be proclaimed upon the house-

4 ''And I say unto you, *my friends. Be
not afraid of them that kill the body, and
after that, have no more that they can do.

5 But I will forewarn you whom ye shall
fear : Fear him, which after he hath killed,
hath power to cast into hell ; yea, I say unto
you, Fpar him.

6 Are not five sparrows sold for two

II farthings, and not one of them is forgotten
before God '{

7 But even the very hairs of your head aie '



We must not be over careful

all numbered. Fear not therefore : ye are of
more value than many sparrows.

8 *"Also I say. unto you, Whosoever shall
confess me before men, him shall the Son of
man also confess before the angels of God.

9 But he that denieth me before men, shall
be denied before the angels of God.

10 And e whosoever shall speak a word
against the Son of man, it shall be forgiven
him : but unto him that blasphemeth against
the Holy Ghost, it shall not be forgiven.

1 1 "^ And when they bring you unto the
synagogues, and unto magistrates, and pow-
ers, take ye no thought how or what thing ye
shall answer, or what ye shall say :

12 For the Holy Ghost shall teach you in
the same hour what ye ought to say.

13 IT And one of the company said unto
him, Master, speak to my brother, that he
divide the inheritance with me.

14 And he said unto him, 'Man, who
made me a judge, or a divider over you ?

15 And he said unto them, •'Take heed,
and beware of covetousness : for a man's life
consisteth not in the abundance of the things
which he possesseth.

16 And he spake a parable unto them,
saying, The ground of a certain rich man
brought forth plentifully:

17 And he thought within himself, saying,
What shall I do, because I have no room
where to bestow my fruits ?

18 And he said. This will I do : I will
pull down my barns, and build greater; and
there Vvill I bestow all my fruits and my

19 And I will say to my soul, 'Soul, thou
hast much goods laid up for many years;
take thine ease, eat, drink, and be merry.

20 But God said unto him. Thou fool,
this night || ■" thy soul shall be required of
thee: "then whose shall those things be
which thou hast provided?

21 So is he. that layeth up treasure for
himself, "and is not rich toward God.

22 H And he said unto his disciples. There-
fore I say unto you, pTake no thought for
your life, what ye shall eat ; neither fer the
body, what ye shall put on.

23 The life is more than meat, and the
body is more than rS,iment.

24 Consider the ravens: for they neither
sow nor reap: which neither have store-
house nor barn; and iGod feedeth them.
How much more are ye better than the fowls ?

25 And which of you with taking thought
can add to his stature one cubit?

26 If ye then be not able to do that thing
which is least, why take ye thought for the

of earthly things.

27 Consider the lilies how they grow:
they toil not, they spin not ; and yet I say
unto you, that Solomon in all his glory was
not arrayed like one of these.

28 If then God so clothe the grass, which
is to-day in the field, and to-morrow is cast
into the oven ; how much more will he clothe
you, O ye of little faith ?

29 And seek not ye what ye shall eat, or
what ye shall drink, || neither be ye of doubt-
ful mind.

30 For all these things do the nations of
the world seek after: and your Father know-
eth that ye have need of these things.

3111' But rather seek ye the kingdom of
God, and all these things shall be added
unto you.

32 Fear not, little flock ; for ^ it is your
Father's good pleasure to give you the king-

33 'Sell that ye have, and give alms:
"provide yourselves bags which wax not old,
a treasure in the heavens that faileth not,
where no thief approacheth, neither moth

34 For where your treasure is, there will
your heart be also.

35 ^Let your loins be girded about, and
yyour lights burning ;

36 And ye yourselves like unto men that
wait for their lord, when he will return from
the wedding ; that, when he cometh and
knocketh, they may open unto him imme-

37 ^Blessed are those servants, whom the
lord when he cometh shall find watching : ,
verily, I say unto you, that he shall gird him-
self, and-make them to sit down to meat, and
will come forth and serve them.

38 And if he shall come' in the second
watch, or come in the third watch, and find
them so, blessed are those servants.

39 " And this know, that if the good man
of the house had known what hour the thief
would come, he would have watched, and not
have suffered his house to be broken through.

40 •'Be ye therefore ready also: for the
Son of man cometh at an hour when ye think

41 IT Then Peter said unto him. Lord,
speakest thou this parable unto us, or even
to all?

42 And the Lord said, <= Who then is that
faithful and wise steward, whom his lord
shall make ruler over his household, to give
them their portion of meat in due season ?

43 Blessed is that servant, whom his lord
when he cometh shall find so doing.

44 -i Of a truth I say unto you. That he will
make him ruler over all that he hath.


The office of Christ's ministers.

45 "But and if that servant say in his heart,
My lord delayeth his coming ; and shall begin
to beat the men-servants, and maidens, and to
eat and drink, and to be drunken ;

46 The lord of that servant vf\\\ come in a
day when he looketh not for him, and at an
hour when he is not aware, and will || cut him
in sunder, and will appoint him his portion
with the unbelievers.

47 And ''that servant which knew his
lord's will, and prepared hot himself, neither
did according to his will, shall be beaten
with many stripes.

48 e But he that knew not, and did com-
mit things worthy of stripes, shall be beaten
with few stripes. For unto whomsoever much
is given, of him shall be much required; and
to whom men have committed much, of him
they will ask the more.

49 IT ''I am come to send fire bn the earth,
and what will I, if it be already kindled ?

50 But ' I have a baptism to be baptized
with ; and how am I || straitened till it be
accomplished !

51 "^ Suppose ye that I am come to give
peace on earth? I tell you. Nay; ^but ra-
ther division :

52 ""For from henceforth there shall be
five in one house divided, three against two,
and two against three.

53 The father shall be divided against the
son, and the son against the father; the
mother against the daughter, and the daugh-
ter against the mother ; the mother-in-law
against her daughter-in-law, and the daugh-
ter-in-law against het mother-in-law.

54 IF And he said also to the people,
"When ye see a cloud rise out of the west,
straightway ye say, There cometh a shower;
and so it is.

55 And when ye see the south wind blow,
ye say, There will be heat; and it comethto

56 Ye hypocrites, ye can discern the face
of the sky, and of the earth ; but how is it,
that ye do not discern this time ?

57 Yea, and why even of yourselves judge
ye not what is right?

58 IF" When thou goest with thine adver-
sary to the magistrate. Pas thou art in the
way, give diligence that thou mayest be deli-
vered from him; lest he hale thee to the
judge, and the judge deliver thee to the of-
ficer, and the officer cast thee into prison.

59 I tell thee, thou shalt not depart
thence, till thou hast paid the very last ||tmte.

eth the powerful working of the word in the hearts of

Pilate had mingled with their

THERE were present at that season
some that told him of the Galileans,
whose blood

2 And Jesus answering, said unto them,
Suppose ye that these Galileans were sinners
above all the Gahleans, because they suffered
such things?

3 I tell you. Nay ; but, except ye repent,
ye shall all likewise perish.

4 Or those eighteen, upon whom the tower
in Siloam fell, and slew them, think ye that
they were [| sinners above all men that dwelt
in Jerusalem?

5 I tell you. Nay ; but, except ye repent,
ye shall all likewise perish.

4 6 H He spake also this parable : "A cer-
tain man had a fig-tree planted in his vine-
yard ; and he came and sought fruit thereon,
and found none.

7 Then said he unto the dresser of his
vineyard, Behold, these three years I come
seeking fruit on this fig-tree, and find none :
cut it down ; why cumbereth it the ground ?

8 And he answering, said unto him, Lord,
let it alone this year also, till I shall dig
about it, and dung it :

9 And if it bear fruit, well : and if not,
then after that thou shalt cut it down.

10 And he was teaching in one of the
synagogues on the sabbath.

11 IF And behold, there was a woman
which had a spirit of infirmity eighteen years,
and was bowed together, and could in no wise
lift up herself.

12 And when Jesus saw her, he called her
to him, and said unto her. Woman, thou art
loosed from thine infirmity.

13 '' And he laid his hands on her : and
immediately she was made straight, and glo-
rified God.

14 And the ruler of the synagogue an-
swered with indignation, because that Jesus
had healed on the sabbath-day, and said unto
the people, "There are six days in which men
ought to work : in them therefore come and
be healed, and "^not on the sabbath-day.

15 The Lord then answered him, and
said, Thou hypocrite, " doth not each one of
you on the sabbath loose his ox or his ass
from the stall, and lead him away to water-

16 And ought not this woman, fbeing a
daughter of Abraham, whom Satan hath
bound, lo, these eighteen years, be loosed
from this bond on the sabbath-day?


The parable of the mustard-seed.

17 And when he had said these things, all
his adversaries were ashamed: and all the
people rejoiced for all the glorious things that
. were done by him,

-^ 18 II ff Then said he, Unto what is the
kingdom of God like ? and whereunto shall I
resemble it?

19 It is like a grain of mustard-seed, which
a man took, and cast into his garden, and it
grew, and waxed a great tree ; and the fowls
of the air lodged in the branches of it.

20 And again he said, Whereunto shall
I liken the kingdom of God?

21 It is like leaven, which a woman took
and hid in three || measures of meal, till the
whole was leavened.

22 '' And he went through the cities and
villages, teaching, and journeying toward

23 Then said one unto him. Lord, are
there few that be saved ? And he s^id unto

begin to stand without, and to knock at the
door, saying, " Lord, Lord, open unto us ;
and he shall answer and say unto you, pI
know you not whence ye are :

26 Then shall ye begin to say. We have
eaten and drunk in thy presence, and thou
hast taught in our streets.

27 q But he shall say, I tell you, I know
you not whence ye are; 'depart from me, all
ye workers of iniquity.

28 = There shall be weeping and gnashing
of teeth, *when ye shall see Abraham, and
Isaac, and Jacob, and all the prophets, in

thrust out.

29 And they shall come from the east, and
from the west, and from the north, andyVom
the south, and shall sit down in the kingdom
of God.

shall be first ; and there are first, which shall
be last.

31 IT The same day there came certain
of the Pharisees, saying unto him. Get thee
out, and depart hence ; for Herod will kill

32 And he said unto them. Go ye and
tell that fox, Behold, I cast out devils, and
I do cures to-day and to-morrow, and the
third day ^I shall be perfected.

33 Nevertheless, I must walk to-day and
to-morrow, and the day following : for it can-
not be that a prophet perish out of Jerusalem.

thered thy children together, as a hen doth
gather her brood under her wings, and ye
would not!

35 Behold, ^your house is left unto you
desolate. And verily, I say unto you, Ye shall
not see me, until the time come when ye
shall say, ^Blessed is he that cometh in the
name of the Lord. '

CHAP. XIV. -"7

2 Christ healeth the dropsy on the sabhath : 7 teacheth
humility : 12 to feast the poor : 16 under the parahle
of the great supper, sheweth how ivorldly minded men,
who contemn the word of God, shall be shut out of
heaven. 25 Those who will be his disciples, to bear
their cross must make their accounts aforehand, lest
with shame they revolt from^ him afterward, 34 and
become altogether unprofitable, like salt that hath lost
his savour.

AND it came to pass, as he went into the
house of one of the chief Pharisees to
eat bread on the sabbath-day, that they
watched him.

2 And behold, there was a certain man
before him which had the dropsy.

3 And Jesus answering, spake unto the
lawyers and Pharisees, saying, ^ Is it lawful
to heal on the sabbath-day?

4 And they held their peace. And he
took him, and healed him, and let him go :

5 And answered them, saying, ''Which of
you shall have an ass or an ox fallen into a
pit, and will not straightway pull him out on
the sabbath-day?

6 And they could n(5t answer him again
to these things.
