35 H i* And it came to pass, that as he was
come nigh unto Jericho, a certain blind man
sat by the way-side begging ;

36 And hearing the multitude pass by, he
asked what it meant.

37 And they told him, that Jesus of
Nazareth passeth by.

38 And he cried, saying, Jesus, thou son
of David, have mercy on me.

39 And they which went before rebuked
him, that he should hold his peace : but he
cried so much the more. Thou son of David,
have mercy on me.

40 And Jesus stood and commanded him
to be brought unto him : and when he was
come near, he asked him,

41 Saying, What wilt thou that I shall do
unto thee ? And he said. Lord, that I may
receive my sight.

42 And Jesus said unto him. Receive thy
sight : "thy faith hath saved thee.

43 And imnjediately he received his sight,
and followed him, ^ glorifying God : and all
the people, when they saw it, gave praise
unto God.

2 And behold, there was a man named
Zaccheus, which was the chief among the
publicans, and he was rich.

3 And he sought to see Jesus who he was ;
and could not for the press, because he was
little of stature.

4 And he ran before, and chmbed up into
a sycamore-tree to see him; for he was to
pass that way.

5 And when Jesus came to the place, he
looked up, and saw him, and said unto him,
Zaccheus, make haste, and come down: for
to-day I must abide at thy house.

6 And he made haste, and came down,
and received him joyfully.

7 And when they saw it, they all mur-
mured, saying, *That he was gone to be
guest with a man that is a sinner.

8 And Zaccheus stood, and said unto the
Lord ; Behold, Lord, the half of my goods
I give to the poor; and if I have taken any
thing from any man by •'false accusation,

added and spake a parable, because he was
nigh to Jerusalem, and because sthey thought
that the kingdom of God should immediately

12 ""He said therefore, A certain noble-
man went into a far country to receive for
himself a kingdom, and to return.

13 And he called his ten servants, and
delivered them ten || pounds, and-^said unto
them. Occupy till I come.

14 'But his citizens hated him, and sent
a message after him, saying. We will not
have this man to reign over us.

15 And it came to pass, that when he was
returned, having received the kingdom, then
he commanded these servants to be called
unto him, to whom he had given the tnioney,
that he might know how much every man
had gained by trading.

16 Then came the first, saying, Lord, thy
pound hath gained ten pounds.

17 And he said unto him. Well, thou good
servant: because thou hast been ^faithful in
a very little, have thou authority over ten

18 And the second came, saying. Lord,
thy pound hath gained five pounds.

19 And he said likewise to him, Be thou
also over five cities.

20 And another came, saying. Lord, be-
hold here is thy pound, which I have kept
laid up in a napkin :

21 'For I feared thee, because thou art
an austere man : thou takest up that thou
layedst not down, and reapest that thou
didst not sow.

22 And he saith unto him, ""Out of thine
own mouth will I judge thee, thou wicked
servant. "Thou knewest that I was an
austere man, taking up that I laid not down,
and reaping that I did not sow :

23 Wherefore then gavest not thou my
money into the bank, that at my coming
I might have required mine own with
usury ?

24 And he said unto them that stood by.
Take from him the pound, and give it to
him that hath ten pounds.

25 (And they said unto him. Lord, he
hath ten pounds.)

John 2. 14,


Christ rideth into Jerusalem.

not that I snould reign over them, bring
hither, and slay them before me.

28 H And when he had thus spoken, p he
went before, ascending up to Jerusalem.

29 lAnd it came to pass, when he was
come nigh to Bethphage and Bethany, at
the mount called the mount of Olives, he
sent two of his disciples,

30 Saying, Go ye into the village over
pgainst you ; in the which at your entering
ye shall find a colt tied, whereon yet never
man sat : loose him, and bring him hither.

31 And if any man ask you. Why do ye
loose him? thus shall ye say unto him,
Because the Lord hath need of him.

32 And they that were sent went their
way, and found even as he had said unto

33 And as they were loosing the colt, the
owners thereof said unto them. Why loose
ye the colt ?

34 And they said. The Lord hath need
of him. •

35 And they brought him to Jesus: 'and
they cast their garments upon-the colt, and
they set Jesus thereon.

36 =And as he went, they spread their
clothes in the way.

37 And when he was come nigh, even
now at the descent of the mount of Olives,
the whole multitude of the disciples began to
rejoice and praise God with a loud voice, for
all the mighty works that they had seen ;

38 Saying, 'Blessed be the King that com-
eth in the name of the Lord : " Peace in hea.
ven, and glory in the highest.

39 And some of the Pharisees from among
the multitude said unto him. Master, rebuke
thy disciples.

40 And he answered and said unto them,
I tell you, that if these should hold their
peace, ^ the stones would immediately cry out.

41 U And when he was come near, he be-
held the city, and ^wept over it,

42 Saying, If thou hadst known, even
thou, at least in this thy day, the things
which belong unto thy peace ! but now they
are hid from thine eyes.

43 For the days shall come upon thee,
that thine enemies shall ^cast a trench about
thee, and compass thee round, and keep thee
in on every side,

44 And "shall lay thee even with the
ground, and thy children within thee : and
••they shall not leave in thee one stone upon
another: "= because thou knewest not the time
of thy visitation.

45 ^KnA. he went into the temple, and
began to cast out them that sold therein, and
them that bought,


He avoucheth his authority.

46 Saying unto them, « It is written, My
house is the house of prayer, but ""ye have
made it a den of thieves.

47 And he taught daily in the temple.
But etbe chief priests, and the scribes., and
the chief of the people sought to destroy

48 And could not find what they might
do: for all the people || were very attentive
to hear him.




I Christ avoucheth his authority by a question of John's
baptism. 9 The parable of the vineyard. 19 Of
giiing tribute to Cesar. 27 He convinceth the Saddu-
cees that denied the resurrection. 41 How Christ is
the Son of David. 45 He warneth his disciples to
beware of the scribes.

AND °it came to pass, that on one of
those days, as he taught the people in
the temple, and preached the gospel, the
chief priests and the scribes came upon him,
with the elders,

2 And spake unto him, saying. Tell us,
■•by what authority doest thou these things?
or who is he that gave thee this authority '(

3 And he answered and said unto them,
I wiil also ask you one thing ; and answer
me :

4 The baptism of John, was it from hea-
ven, or of men?

5 And they reasoned with themselves,
saying. If we shall say. From heaven ; he
will say. Why then beheved ye him not?

6 But and if we say, Of men ; all the peo-
ple will stone us : ■= for they be persuaded
that John was a prophet.

7 And they answered. That they could not
tell whence it was.

' 8 And Jesus said unto them. Neither tell
I you by what authority I do these things.

9 Then began he to speak to the people
this parable : ^ A certain man planted a vine-
yard, and. let it forth to husbandmen, and
went into a far country for a long time.

10 And at the season he sent a servant
to the husbandmen, that they should give
him of the fruit of the vineyard : but the
husbandmen beat him, and sent him away

11 And again he sent another servant:
and they beat him also, and entreated him
ehamefully, and sent him away empty.

12 And again he sent a third : and they
wounded him also, and cast him out.

13 Then said the lord of the vineyard,
What shall I do ? I will send my beloved
son : it may be they will reverence him when
they see him.

14 But when the husbandmen saw him,
they reasoned among themselves, sayiiig,This<

is the heir : come, let us kill him, that the
inheritance may be ours.

15 So they cast him out of the vineyard,
and killed him. What therefore shall the
lord of the vineyard do unto them?

16 He shall come and destroy these hus-
bandmen, and shall give the vineyard to
others. And when they heard it, they said,
God forbid.

17 And he beheld them, and said. What
is this then that is written, ^ The stone
which the builders rejected, the same is be-
come the head of the corner?

18 Whosoever shall fall upon that stone,
shall be broken : but •" on whomsoever it
shall fall, it will grind him to powder.

19 IT And the chief priests and the scribes
the same hour sought to lay hands on him ;
and they feared the people : for they per-
ceived that he had spoken this parable
against them.

20 6f And they watched him, and sent forth
spies, which should feign themselves just
men, that they might take hold of his
words, that so they might deliver him unto
the power and authority of the governor.

21 And they asked him, saying, ■" Master,
we know that thou sayest and teachest right-
ly, neither acceptest thou the person q/ any,
but teachest the way of God || truly :

22 Is it lawful for us to give tribute unto
Cesar, or no ? ,

23 But he perceived their craftiness, and
said unto them. Why tempt ye me?

24 Shew me a || penny. Whose image and
superscription hath it ? They answered and
said, Cesar's.

25 And he said unto them, Render there-
fore unto Cesar the things which be Cesar's,
and unto God the things which be God's.

26 And they could not take hold of his
words before the people : and they marvelled
at his answer, and held their peace.

27 IT 'Then came to him certain of the
Sadducees Q which deny that there is any
resurrection) and they asked him,

28 Saying, Master, ' Moses wrote unto us.
If any man's brother die, having a wife, and
he die without children, that his brother
should take his wife, and raise up seed unto
his brother.

29 There were therefore seven brethren :
and the first took a wife, and died without

30 And the second took her to wife, and
he died childless.

31 And the third took her; and in like
manner the seven also : and they left no
children, and died.

32 Last of all the woman died also.



How Christ is the son of David.

33 Therefore in the resurrection, whose
wife of them is she ? for seven had her to

34 And Jesus answering, said unto them,
The children of this world marry, and are
given in marriage :

35 But they which shall be accounted
worthy to obtain that world, and the re-
surrection from the dead, neither marry, nor
are given in marriage :

36 Neither can they die any more : for
■" they are equal unto the angels ; and are
the children of God, " being the children of
the resurrection.

37 Now that the dead a"re raised, " even
Moses shewed at the bush, when he calleth
the Lord the God of Abraham, and the
God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob.

38 For he is not a God of the dead, but
of the living : for p all live unto him.

39 IT Then certain of the scribes answering,
said. Master, thou hast well said.

40 And after that, they durst not ask him
any question at all.

41 IT And he said unto them, i How say
they that Christ is David's son ?

42 And David himself saith in the book
of Psalms, 'The Lord said unto my Lord,
Sit theu on my right hand,

43 Till I make thine enemies thy foot-

44 David therefore calleth him Lord, how
is he then his son?

45 H = Then in the audience of all the
people, he said unto his disciples,

46 'Beware of the scribes, which desire to
walk in long robes, and "love greetings in
the markets, and the highest seats in the
synagogues, and the chief rooms at feasts ;

47 " Which devour widows' houses, and
for a shew make long prayers : the same
shall receive greater damnation.


1 Christ commendeth the poor widow. 5 He foretelleth
the destruction of the temple, and of the city Jerusalem :
25 the signs also which shall .be before the last day.
34 He exhorteth them to be watchful.

AND he looked up "and saw the rich
men casting their gifts into the treasury.

2 And he saw also a certain poor widow,
casting in thither two || mites.

3 And he said, Of a truth I say unto
you, ^ that this poor widow hath cast in
more than they all.

4 For all these have of their abundance
cast in unto the offerings of God : but she
of her penury hath cast in all the living
that she had.

The destruction of the temple foretold.

how it was adorned with goodly stones, and
gifts, he said,

6 As for these things which ye behold,
the days will come, in the which ■* there
shall -not be left one stone upon another,
that shall not be thrown down.

7 And they asked him, saying. Master,
but when shall these things be ? and what
sign will there he when these things shall
come to pass?

8 And he said, «Take heed that ye be not
deceived : for many shall come in my name,
saying, I' am Christ ; \\ and the time draweth
near : go ye not therefore after them.

9 But when ye shall hear of wars, and
commotions, be notterrified : for these things
must first come to pass ; but the end is not
by and by.

10 f Then said he unto them. Nation shall
rise against nation, and kingdom against
kingdom :

11 And great earthquakes shall be in di-
vers places, and famines, and pestilences :
and fearful sights, and great signs shall there
be from heaven.

12 ffBut before all these they shall lay
their hands on you, and persecute you, de-
livering you up to the synagogues, and ''into
prisons, 'being brought before kings and
rulers ^ for my name's sake.

13 And ' it shall turn to you for a testi-
mony. -\

14 ""Settle it therefore in your hearts, not
to meditate before what ye shall answer.

15. For I will give you a mouth and wis-
dom, "which all your adversaries shall not be
able to gainsay nor resist. j,

. 16 "And ye shall be betrayed both by'^
parents, and brethren, and kinsfolks, and
friends ; and p some of you shall they cause
to be put to death.

17 And 1 ye shall be hated of all men for
my name's sake.

18 "^But there shall not an hair of your
head perish.

19 In your patience possess ye your souls.

20 ^ And when ye shall see Jerusalem
compassed with armies, then know that the
desolation thereof is nigh.

21 Then let them which are in Judea flee
to the mountains; and let them which are in
the midst of it depart out; and let not them
that are in the countries enter thereinto.

22 For these be the days of vengeance,
that * all things which are written may be

child, and to them that give suck in those
days ! for there shall be great distress in the
land, and wrath upon this people.

The signs of Chrisfs second coming.

24 And they shall fall by the edge of the
sword, and shall be led away captive into
all nations : and Jerusalem shall be trodden
down of the Gentiles, ^ until the times of the
Gentiles be fulfilled.

25 IT y And there shall be signs in the sun,
and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon
the earth distress of nations, with perplexity;
tlie sea and the waves roaring ;

26 Men's hearts failing them for fear, and
for looking after those things Avhich are
coming on the earth : ^ for the powers of
heaven shall be shaken.

27 And then shall they see the Son of
man "coming in a cloud, with power and
great glory.

28 And when these things begin to come
to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads :
for ''your redemption draweth nigh.

29 •'And he spake to them a parable;
Behold the fig-tree, and all the trees ;

30 When they now shoot forth, ye see
and know of your own selves that summer
is now nigh at hand.

31 So likewise ye, when ye see these things
come to pass, know ye that the kingdom of
God is nigh at hand.

32 Verily, I say unto you. This generation
shall not pass away, till all be fulfilled.

33 ^ Heaven and earth shall pass away :
but my words shall not pass away.

34 HAnd «take heed to yourselves, lest
at any time your hearts be overcharged with

this life, and so that day come upon you

35 For ""as a snare shall it come on all

36 ? W-atch ye therefore, and '•pray always,
that ye may be accounted worthy to escape
