1:1 The book of the generation of Jesus Christ, the son of

David, the son of Abraham.

1:2 Abraham begat Isaac; and Isaac begat Jacob; and Jacob begat

Judas and his brethren;

1:3 And Judas begat Phares and Zara of Thamar; and Phares begat

Esrom; and Esrom begat Aram;

1:4 And Aram begat Aminadab; and Aminadab begat Naasson; and

Naasson begat Salmon;

1:5 And Salmon begat Booz of Rachab; and Booz begat Obed of

Ruth; and Obed begat Jesse;

1:6 And Jesse begat David the king; and David the king begat

Solomon of her [that had been the wife] of Urias;

1:7 And Solomon begat Roboam; and Roboam begat Abia; and Abia

begat Asa;

1:8 And Asa begat Josaphat; and Josaphat begat Joram; and Joram

begat Ozias;

1:9 And Ozias begat Joatham; and Joatham begat Achaz; and Achaz

begat Ezekias;

1:10 And Ezekias begat Manasses; and Manasses begat Amon; and

Amon begat Josias;

1:11 And Josias begat Jechonias and his brethren, about the time

they were carried away to Babylon:

1:12 And after they were brought to Babylon, Jechonias begat

Salathiel; and Salathiel begat Zorobabel;

1:13 And Zorobabel begat Abiud; and Abiud begat Eliakim; and

Eliakim begat Azor;

1:14 And Azor begat Sadoc; and Sadoc begat Achim; and Achim

begat Eliud;

1:15 And Eliud begat Eleazar; and Eleazar begat Matthan; and

Matthan begat Jacob;

1:16 And Jacob begat Joseph the husband of Mary, of whom was

born Jesus, who is called Christ.

1:17 So all the generations from Abraham to David [are] fourteen

generations; and from David until the carrying away into

Babylon [are] fourteen generations; and from the carrying away

into Babylon unto Christ [are] fourteen generations.

1:18 Now the birth of Jesus Christ was on this wise: When as his

mother Mary was espoused to Joseph, before they came together,

she was found with child of the Holy Ghost.

1:19 Then Joseph her husband, being a just [man], and not

willing to make her a publick example, was minded to put her

away privily.

1:20 But while he thought on these things, behold, the angel of

the Lord appeared unto him in a dream, saying, Joseph, thou son

of David, fear not to take unto thee Mary thy wife: for that

which is conceived in her is of the Holy Ghost.

1:21 And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his

name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins.

1:22 Now all this was done, that it might be fulfilled which was

spoken of the Lord by the prophet, saying,

1:23 Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth

a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being

interpreted is, God with us.

1:24 Then Joseph being raised from sleep did as the angel of the

Lord had bidden him, and took unto him his wife:

1:25 And knew her not till she had brought forth her firstborn

son: and he called his name JESUS.

2:1 Now when Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judaea in the days

of Herod the king, behold, there came wise men from the east to


2:2 Saying, Where is he that is born King of the Jews? for we

have seen his star in the east, and are come to worship him.

2:3 When Herod the king had heard [these things], he was

troubled, and all Jerusalem with him.

2:4 And when he had gathered all the chief priests and scribes

of the people together, he demanded of them where Christ should

be born.

2:5 And they said unto him, In Bethlehem of Judaea: for thus it

is written by the prophet,

2:6 And thou Bethlehem, [in] the land of Juda, art not the least

among the princes of Juda: for out of thee shall come a

Governor, that shall rule my people Israel.

2:7 Then Herod, when he had privily called the wise men,

enquired of them diligently what time the star appeared.

2:8 And he sent them to Bethlehem, and said, Go and search

diligently for the young child; and when ye have found [him],

bring me word again, that I may come and worship him also.

2:9 When they had heard the king, they departed; and, lo, the

star, which they saw in the east, went before them, till it

came and stood over where the young child was.

2:10 When they saw the star, they rejoiced with exceeding great


2:11 And when they were come into the house, they saw the young

child with Mary his mother, and fell down, and worshipped him:

and when they had opened their treasures, they presented unto

him gifts; gold, and frankincense, and myrrh.

2:12 And being warned of God in a dream that they should not

return to Herod, they departed into their own country another


2:13 And when they were departed, behold, the angel of the Lord

appeareth to Joseph in a dream, saying, Arise, and take the

young child and his mother, and flee into Egypt, and be thou

there until I bring thee word: for Herod will seek the young

child to destroy him.

2:14 When he arose, he took the young child and his mother by

night, and departed into Egypt:

2:15 And was there until the death of Herod: that it might be

fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet, saying,

Out of Egypt have I called my son.

2:16 Then Herod, when he saw that he was mocked of the wise men,

was exceeding wroth, and sent forth, and slew all the children

that were in Bethlehem, and in all the coasts thereof, from two

years old and under, according to the time which he had

diligently enquired of the wise men.

2:17 Then was fulfilled that which was spoken by Jeremy the

prophet, saying,

2:18 In Rama was there a voice heard, lamentation, and weeping,

and great mourning, Rachel weeping [for] her children, and

would not be comforted, because they are not.

2:19 But when Herod was dead, behold, an angel of the Lord

appeareth in a dream to Joseph in Egypt,

2:20 Saying, Arise, and take the young child and his mother, and

go into the land of Israel: for they are dead which sought the

young child's life.

2:21 And he arose, and took the young child and his mother, and

came into the land of Israel.

2:22 But when he heard that Archelaus did reign in Judaea in the

room of his father Herod, he was afraid to go thither:

notwithstanding, being warned of God in a dream, he turned

aside into the parts of Galilee:

2:23 And he came and dwelt in a city called Nazareth: that it

might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophets, He shall

be called a Nazarene.

3:1 In those days came John the Baptist, preaching in the

wilderness of Judaea,

3:2 And saying, Repent ye: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.

3:3 For this is he that was spoken of by the prophet Esaias,

saying, The voice of one crying in the wilderness, Prepare ye

the way of the Lord, make his paths straight.

3:4 And the same John had his raiment of camel's hair, and a

leathern girdle about his loins; and his meat was locusts and

wild honey.

3:5 Then went out to him Jerusalem, and all Judaea, and all the

region round about Jordan,

3:6 And were baptized of him in Jordan, confessing their sins.

3:7 But when he saw many of the Pharisees and Sadducees come to

his baptism, he said unto them, O generation of vipers, who

hath warned you to flee from the wrath to come?

3:8 Bring forth therefore fruits meet for repentance:

3:9 And think 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 Abraham.

3:10 And now also the axe is laid unto the root of the trees:

therefore every tree which bringeth not forth good fruit is

hewn down, and cast into the fire.

3:11 I indeed baptize you with water unto repentance: but he

that cometh after me is mightier than I, whose shoes I am not

worthy to bear: he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost, and

[with] fire:

3:12 Whose fan [is] in his hand, and he will throughly purge his

floor, and gather his wheat into the garner; but he will burn

up the chaff with unquenchable fire.

3:13 Then cometh Jesus from Galilee to Jordan unto John, to be

baptized of him.

3:14 But John forbad him, saying, I have need to be baptized of

thee, and comest thou to me?

3:15 And Jesus answering said unto him, Suffer [it to be so]

now: for thus it becometh us to fulfil all righteousness. Then

he suffered him.

3:16 And Jesus, when he was baptized, went up straightway out of

the water: and, lo, the heavens were opened unto him, and he

saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove, and lighting upon


3:17 And lo a voice from heaven, saying, This is my beloved Son,

in whom I am well pleased.

4:1 Then was Jesus led up of the Spirit into the wilderness to

be tempted of the devil.

4:2 And when he had fasted forty days and forty nights, he was

afterward an hungred.

4:3 And when the tempter came to him, he said, If thou be the

Son of God, command that these stones be made bread.

4:4 But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live

by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the

mouth of God.

4:5 Then the devil taketh him up into the holy city, and setteth

him on a pinnacle of the temple,

4:6 And saith unto him, If thou be the Son of God, cast thyself

down: for it is written, He shall give his angels charge

concerning thee: and in [their] hands they shall bear thee up,

lest at any time thou dash thy foot against a stone.

4:7 Jesus said unto him, It is written again, Thou shalt not

tempt the Lord thy God.

4:8 Again, the devil taketh him up into an exceeding high

mountain, and sheweth him all the kingdoms of the world, and

the glory of them;

4:9 And saith unto him, All these things will I give thee, if

thou wilt fall down and worship me.

4:10 Then saith Jesus unto him, Get thee hence, Satan: for it is

written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only

shalt thou serve.

4:11 Then the devil leaveth him, and, behold, angels came and

ministered unto him.

4:12 Now when Jesus had heard that John was cast into prison, he

departed into Galilee;

4:13 And leaving Nazareth, he came and dwelt in Capernaum, which

is upon the sea coast, in the borders of Zabulon and


4:14 That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Esaias the

prophet, saying,

4:15 The land of Zabulon, and the land of Nephthalim, [by] the

way of the sea, beyond Jordan, Galilee of the Gentiles;

4:16 The people which sat in darkness saw great light; and to

them which sat in the region and shadow of death light is

sprung up.

4:17 From that time Jesus began to preach, and to say, Repent:

for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.

4:18 And Jesus, walking by the sea of Galilee, saw two brethren,

Simon called Peter, and Andrew his brother, casting a net into

the sea: for they were fishers.

4:19 And he saith unto them, Follow me, and I will make you

fishers of men.

4:20 And they straightway left [their] nets, and followed him.

4:21 And going on from thence, he saw other two brethren, James

[the son] of Zebedee, and John his brother, in a ship with

Zebedee their father, mending their nets; and he called them.

4:22 And they immediately left the ship and their father, and

followed him.

4:23 And Jesus went about all Galilee, teaching in their

synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and

healing all manner of sickness and all manner of disease among

the people.

4:24 And his fame went throughout all Syria: and they brought

unto him all sick people that were taken with divers diseases

and torments, and those which were possessed with devils, and

those which were lunatick, and those that had the palsy; and he

healed them.

4:25 And there followed him great multitudes of people from

Galilee, and [from] Decapolis, and [from] Jerusalem, and [from]

Judaea, and [from] beyond Jordan.

5:1 And seeing the multitudes, he went up into a mountain: and

when he was set, his disciples came unto him:

5:2 And he opened his mouth, and taught them, saying,

5:3 Blessed [are] the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom

of heaven.

5:4 Blessed [are] they that mourn: for they shall be comforted.

5:5 Blessed [are] the meek: for they shall inherit the earth.

5:6 Blessed [are] they which do hunger and thirst after

righteousness: for they shall be filled.

5:7 Blessed [are] the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy.

5:8 Blessed [are] the pure in heart: for they shall see God.

5:9 Blessed [are] the peacemakers: for they shall be called the

children of God.

5:10 Blessed [are] they which are persecuted for righteousness'

sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

5:11 Blessed are ye, when [men] shall revile you, and persecute

[you], and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely,

for my sake.

5:12 Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great [is] your reward

in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were

before you.

5:13 Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his

savour, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good

for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot

of men.

5:14 Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an

hill cannot be hid.

5:15 Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel,

but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in

the house.

5:16 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your

good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.

5:17 Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the

prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil.

5:18 For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one

jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all

be fulfilled.

5:19 Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least

commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the

least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and

teach [them], the same shall be called great in the kingdom of


5:20 For I say unto you, That except your righteousness shall

exceed [the righteousness] of the scribes and Pharisees, ye

shall in no case enter into the kingdom of heaven.

5:21 Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time, Thou

shalt not kill; and whosoever shall kill shall be in danger of

the judgment:

5:22 But I say unto you, That whosoever is angry with his

brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment: and

whosoever shall say to his brother, Raca, shall be in danger of

the council: but whosoever shall say, Thou fool, shall be in

danger of hell fire.

5:23 Therefore if thou bring thy gift to the altar, and there

rememberest that thy brother hath ought against thee;

5:24 Leave there thy gift before the altar, and go thy way;

first be reconciled to thy brother, and then come and offer thy


5:25 Agree with thine adversary quickly, whiles thou art in the

way with him; lest at any time the adversary deliver thee to

the judge, and the judge deliver thee to the officer, and thou

be cast into prison.

5:26 Verily I say unto thee, Thou shalt by no means come out

thence, till thou hast paid the uttermost farthing.

5:27 Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time, Thou

shalt not commit adultery:

5:28 But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to

lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his


5:29 And if thy right eye offend thee, pluck it out, and cast

[it] from thee: for it is profitable for thee that one of thy

members should perish, and not [that] thy whole body should be

cast into hell.

5:30 And if thy right hand offend thee, cut it off, and cast

[it] from thee: for it is profitable for thee that one of thy

members should perish, and not [that] thy whole body should be

cast into hell.

5:31 It hath been said, Whosoever shall put away his wife, let

him give her a writing of divorcement:

5:32 But I say unto you, That whosoever shall put away his wife,

saving for the cause of fornication, causeth her to commit

adultery: and whosoever shall marry her that is divorced

committeth adultery.

5:33 Again, ye have heard that it hath been said by them of old

time, Thou shalt not forswear thyself, but shalt perform unto

the Lord thine oaths:

5:34 But I say unto you, Swear not at all; neither by heaven;

for it is God's throne:

5:35 Nor by the earth; for it is his footstool: neither by

Jerusalem; for it is the city of the great King.

5:36 Neither shalt thou swear by thy head, because thou canst

not make one hair white or black.

5:37 But let your communication be, Yea, yea; Nay, nay: for

whatsoever is more than these cometh of evil.

5:38 Ye have heard that it hath been said, An eye for an eye,

and a tooth for a tooth:

5:39 But I say unto you, That ye resist not evil: but whosoever

shall smite thee on thy right cheek, turn to him the other


5:40 And if any man will sue thee at the law, and take away thy

coat, let him have [thy] cloke also.

5:41 And whosoever shall compel thee to go a mile, go with him


5:42 Give to him that asketh thee, and from him that would

borrow of thee turn not thou away.

5:43 Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy

neighbour, and hate thine enemy.

5:44 But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that

curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them

which despitefully use you, and persecute you;

5:45 That ye may be the children of your Father which is in

heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the

good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust.

5:46 For if ye love them which love you, what reward have ye? do

not even the publicans the same?

5:47 And if ye salute your brethren only, what do ye more [than

others]? do not even the publicans so?

5:48 Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in

heaven is perfect.

6:1 Take heed that ye do not your alms before men, to be seen of

them: otherwise ye have no reward of your Father which is in


6:2 Therefore when thou doest [thine] alms, do not sound a

trumpet before thee, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and

in the streets, that they may have glory of men. Verily I say

unto you, They have their reward.

6:3 But when thou doest alms, let not thy left hand know what

thy right hand doeth:

6:4 That thine alms may be in secret: and thy Father which seeth

in secret himself shall reward thee openly.

6:5 And when thou prayest, thou shalt not be as the hypocrites

[are]: for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and in

the corners of the streets, that they may be seen of men.

Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.

6:6 But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when

thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret;

and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly.

6:7 But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen

[do]: for they think that they shall be heard for their much


6:8 Be not ye therefore like unto them: for your Father knoweth

what things ye have need of, before ye ask him.

6:9 After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in

heaven, Hallowed be thy name.

6:10 Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as [it is] in


6:11 Give us this day our daily bread.

6:12 And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.

6:13 And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil:

For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for

ever. Amen.

6:14 For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly

Father will also forgive you:

6:15 But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will

your Father forgive your trespasses.

6:16 Moreover when ye fast, be not, as the hypocrites, of a sad

countenance: for they disfigure their faces, that they may

appear unto men to fast. Verily I say unto you, They have their


6:17 But thou, when thou fastest, anoint thine head, and wash

thy face;

6:18 That thou appear not unto men to fast, but unto thy Father

which is in secret: and thy Father, which seeth in secret,

shall reward thee openly.

6:19 Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth

and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and


6:20 But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where

neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not

break through nor steal:

6:21 For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.

6:22 The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be

single, thy whole body shall be full of light.

6:23 But if thine eye be evil, thy whole body shall be full of

darkness. If therefore the light that is in thee be darkness,

how great [is] that darkness!

6:24 No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the

one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and

despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.

6:25 Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life,

what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your

body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and

the body than raiment?

6:26 Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do

they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father

feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they?

6:27 Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his


6:28 And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of

the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin:

6:29 And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory

was not arrayed like one of these.

6:30 Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which

to day is, and to morrow is cast into the oven, [shall he] not

much more [clothe] you, O ye of little faith?

6:31 Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or,

What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed?

6:32 (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your

heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things.

6:33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his

righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.

6:34 Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow

shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto

the day [is] the evil thereof.

7:1 Judge not, that ye be not judged.

7:2 For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and

with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again.

7:3 And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother's

eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye?

7:4 Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the

mote out of thine eye; and, behold, a beam [is] in thine own


7:5 Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own

eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out

of thy brother's eye.

7:6 Give not that which is holy unto the dogs, neither cast ye

your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their

feet, and turn again and rend you.

7:7 Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find;

knock, and it shall be opened unto you:

7:8 For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh

findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.

7:9 Or what man is there of you, whom if his son ask bread, will

he give him a stone?

7:10 Or if he ask a fish, will he give him a serpent?

7:11 If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto

your children, how much more shall your Father which is in

heaven give good things to them that ask him?

7:12 Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do

to you, do ye even so to them: for this is the law and the


7:13 Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide [is] the gate, and

broad [is] the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there

be which go in thereat:

7:14 Because strait [is] the gate, and narrow [is] the way,

which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.

7:15 Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's

clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.

7:16 Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of

thorns, or figs of thistles?

7:17 Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a

corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit.

7:18 A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither [can] a

corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.

7:19 Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down,

and cast into the fire.

7:20 Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.

7:21 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter

into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my

Father which is in heaven.

7:22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not

prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils?

and in thy name done many wonderful works?

7:23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart

from me, ye that work iniquity.

7:24 Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and

doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his

house upon a rock:

7:25 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds

blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was

founded upon a rock.

7:26 And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth

them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his

house upon the sand:

7:27 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds

blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the

fall of it.

7:28 And it came to pass, when Jesus had ended these sayings,

the people were astonished at his doctrine:

7:29 For he taught them as [one] having authority, and not as

the scribes.

8:1 When he was come down from the mountain, great multitudes

followed him.

8:2 And, behold, there came a leper and worshipped him, saying,

Lord, if thou wilt, thou canst make me clean.

8:3 And Jesus put forth [his] hand, and touched him, saying, I

will; be thou clean. And immediately his leprosy was cleansed.

8:4 And Jesus saith unto him, See thou tell no man; but go thy

way, shew thyself to the priest, and offer the gift that Moses

commanded, for a testimony unto them.

8:5 And when Jesus was entered into Capernaum, there came unto

him a centurion, beseeching him,

8:6 And saying, Lord, my servant lieth at home sick of the

palsy, grievously tormented.

8:7 And Jesus saith unto him, I will come and heal him.

8:8 The centurion answered and said, Lord, I am not worthy that

thou shouldest come under my roof: but speak the word only, and

my servant shall be healed.

8:9 For I am a man under authority, having soldiers under me:

and I say to this [man], Go, and he goeth; and to another,

Come, and he cometh; and to my servant, Do this, and he doeth


8:10 When Jesus heard [it], he marvelled, and said to them that

followed, Verily I say unto you, I have not found so great

faith, no, not in Israel.

8:11 And I say unto you, That many shall come from the east and

west, and shall sit down with Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, in

the kingdom of heaven.

8:12 But the children of the kingdom shall be cast out into

outer darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

8:13 And Jesus said unto the centurion, Go thy way; and as thou

hast believed, [so] be it done unto thee. And his servant was

healed in the selfsame hour.

8:14 And when Jesus was come into Peter's house, he saw his

wife's mother laid, and sick of a fever.

8:15 And he touched her hand, and the fever left her: and she

arose, and ministered unto them.

8:16 When the even was come, they brought unto him many that

were possessed with devils: and he cast out the spirits with

[his] word, and healed all that were sick:

8:17 That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Esaias the

prophet, saying, Himself took our infirmities, and bare [our]


8:18 Now when Jesus saw great multitudes about him, he gave

commandment to depart unto the other side.

8:19 And a certain scribe came, and said unto him, Master, I

will follow thee whithersoever thou goest.

8:20 And Jesus saith unto him, The foxes have holes, and the

birds of the air [have] nests; but the Son of man hath not

where to lay [his] head.

8:21 And another of his disciples said unto him, Lord, suffer me

first to go and bury my father.

8:22 But Jesus said unto him, Follow me; and let the dead bury

their dead.

8:23 And when he was entered into a ship, his disciples followed


8:24 And, behold, there arose a great tempest in the sea,

insomuch that the ship was covered with the waves: but he was


8:25 And his disciples came to [him], and awoke him, saying,

Lord, save us: we perish.

8:26 And he saith unto them, Why are ye fearful, O ye of little

faith? Then he arose, and rebuked the winds and the sea; and

there was a great calm.

8:27 But the men marvelled, saying, What manner of man is this,

that even the winds and the sea obey him!

8:28 And when he was come to the other side into the country of

the Gergesenes, there met him two possessed with devils, coming

out of the tombs, exceeding fierce, so that no man might pass

by that way.

8:29 And, behold, they cried out, saying, What have we to do

with thee, Jesus, thou Son of God? art thou come hither to

torment us before the time?

8:30 And there was a good way off from them an herd of many

swine feeding.

8:31 So the devils besought him, saying, If thou cast us out,

suffer us to go away into the herd of swine.

8:32 And he said unto them, Go. And when they were come out,

they went into the herd of swine: and, behold, the whole herd

of swine ran violently down a steep place into the sea, and

perished in the waters.

8:33 And they that kept them fled, and went their ways into the

city, and told every thing, and what was befallen to the

possessed of the devils.

8:34 And, behold, the whole city came out to meet Jesus: and

when they saw him, they besought [him] that he would depart out

of their coasts.

9:1 And he entered into a ship, and passed over, and came into

his own city.

9:2 And, behold, they brought to him a man sick of the palsy,

lying on a bed: and Jesus seeing their faith said unto the sick

of the palsy; Son, be of good cheer; thy sins be forgiven thee.

9:3 And, behold, certain of the scribes said within themselves,

This [man] blasphemeth.

9:4 And Jesus knowing their thoughts said, Wherefore think ye

evil in your hearts?

9:5 For whether is easier, to say, [Thy] sins be forgiven thee;

or to say, Arise, and walk?

9:6 But that ye may know that the Son of man hath power on earth

to forgive sins, (then saith he to the sick of the palsy,)

Arise, take up thy bed, and go unto thine house.

9:7 And he arose, and departed to his house.

9:8 But when the multitudes saw [it], they marvelled, and

glorified God, which had given such power unto men.

9:9 And as Jesus passed forth from thence, he saw a man, named

Matthew, sitting at the receipt of custom: and he saith unto

him, Follow me. And he arose, and followed him.

9:10 And it came to pass, as Jesus sat at meat in the house,

behold, many publicans and sinners came and sat down with him

and his disciples.

9:11 And when the Pharisees saw [it], they said unto his

disciples, Why eateth your Master with publicans and sinners?

9:12 But when Jesus heard [that], he said unto them, They that

be whole need not a physician, but they that are sick.

9:13 But go ye and learn what [that] meaneth, I will have mercy,

and not sacrifice: for I am not come to call the righteous, but

sinners to repentance.

9:14 Then came to him the disciples of John, saying, Why do we

and the Pharisees fast oft, but thy disciples fast not?

9:15 And Jesus said unto them, Can the children of the

bridechamber mourn, as long as the bridegroom is with them? but

the days will come, when the bridegroom shall be taken from

them, and then shall they fast.

9:16 No man putteth a piece of new cloth unto an old garment,

for that which is put in to fill it up taketh from the garment,

and the rent is made worse.

9:17 Neither do men put new wine into old bottles: else the

bottles break, and the wine runneth out, and the bottles

perish: but they put new wine into new bottles, and both are


9:18 While he spake these things unto them, behold, there came a

certain ruler, and worshipped him, saying, My daughter is even

now dead: but come and lay thy hand upon her, and she shall


9:19 And Jesus arose, and followed him, and [so did] his


9:20 And, behold, a woman, which was diseased with an issue of

blood twelve years, came behind [him], and touched the hem of

his garment:

9:21 For she said within herself, If I may but touch his

garment, I shall be whole.

9:22 But Jesus turned him about, and when he saw her, he said,

Daughter, be of good comfort; thy faith hath made thee whole.

And the woman was made whole from that hour.

9:23 And when Jesus came into the ruler's house, and saw the

minstrels and the people making a noise,

9:24 He said unto them, Give place: for the maid is not dead,

but sleepeth. And they laughed him to scorn.

9:25 But when the people were put forth, he went in, and took

her by the hand, and the maid arose.

9:26 And the fame hereof went abroad into all that land.

9:27 And when Jesus departed thence, two blind men followed him,

crying, and saying, [Thou] Son of David, have mercy on us.

9:28 And when he was come into the house, the blind men came to

him: and Jesus saith unto them, Believe ye that I am able to do

this? They said unto him, Yea, Lord.

9:29 Then touched he their eyes, saying, According to your faith

be it unto you.

9:30 And their eyes were opened; and Jesus straitly charged

them, saying, See [that] no man know [it].

9:31 But they, when they were departed, spread abroad his fame

in all that country.

9:32 As they went out, behold, they brought to him a dumb man

possessed with a devil.

9:33 And when the devil was cast out, the dumb spake: and the

multitudes marvelled, saying, It was never so seen in Israel.

9:34 But the Pharisees said, He casteth out devils through the

prince of the devils.

9:35 And Jesus went about all the cities and villages, teaching

in their synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the kingdom,

and healing every sickness and every disease among the people.

9:36 But when he saw the multitudes, he was moved with

compassion on them, because they fainted, and were scattered

abroad, as sheep having no shepherd.

9:37 Then saith he unto his disciples, The harvest truly [is]

plenteous, but the labourers [are] few;

9:38 Pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he will

send forth labourers into his harvest.

10:1 And when he had called unto [him] his twelve disciples, he

gave them power [against] unclean spirits, to cast them out,

and to heal all manner of sickness and all manner of disease.

10:2 Now the names of the twelve apostles are these; The first,

Simon, who is called Peter, and Andrew his brother; James [the

son] of Zebedee, and John his brother;

10:3 Philip, and Bartholomew; Thomas, and Matthew the publican;

James [the son] of Alphaeus, and Lebbaeus, whose surname was


10:4 Simon the Canaanite, and Judas Iscariot, who also betrayed


10:5 These twelve Jesus sent forth, and commanded them, saying,

Go not into the way of the Gentiles, and into [any] city of the

Samaritans enter ye not:

10:6 But go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel.

10:7 And as ye go, preach, saying, The kingdom of heaven is at


10:8 Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out

devils: freely ye have received, freely give.

10:9 Provide neither gold, nor silver, nor brass in your purses,

10:10 Nor scrip for [your] journey, neither two coats, neither

shoes, nor yet staves: for the workman is worthy of his meat.

10:11 And into whatsoever city or town ye shall enter, enquire

who in it is worthy; and there abide till ye go thence.

10:12 And when ye come into an house, salute it.

10:13 And if the house be worthy, let your peace come upon it:

but if it be not worthy, let your peace return to you.

10:14 And whosoever shall not receive you, nor hear your words,

when ye depart out of that house or city, shake off the dust of

your feet.

10:15 Verily I say unto you, It shall be more tolerable for the

land of Sodom and Gomorrha in the day of judgment, than for

that city.

10:16 Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves:

be ye therefore wise as serpents, and harmless as doves.

10:17 But beware of men: for they will deliver you up to the

councils, and they will scourge you in their synagogues;

10:18 And ye shall be brought before governors and kings for my

sake, for a testimony against them and the Gentiles.

10:19 But when they deliver you up, take no thought how or what

ye shall speak: for it shall be given you in that same hour

what ye shall speak.

10:20 For it is not ye that speak, but the Spirit of your Father

which speaketh in you.

10:21 And the brother shall deliver up the brother to death, and

the father the child: and the children shall rise up against

[their] parents, and cause them to be put to death.

10:22 And ye shall be hated of all [men] for my name's sake: but

he that endureth to the end shall be saved.

10:23 But when they persecute you in this city, flee ye into

another: for verily I say unto you, Ye shall not have gone over

the cities of Israel, till the Son of man be come.

10:24 The disciple is not above [his] master, nor the servant

above his lord.

10:25 It is enough for the disciple that he be as his master,

and the servant as his lord. If they have called the master of

the house Beelzebub, how much more [shall they call] them of

his household?

10:26 Fear them not therefore: for there is nothing covered,

that shall not be revealed; and hid, that shall not be known.

10:27 What I tell you in darkness, [that] speak ye in light: and

what ye hear in the ear, [that] preach ye upon the housetops.

10:28 And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to

kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy

both soul and body in hell.

10:29 Are not two sparrows sold for a farthing? and one of them

shall not fall on the ground without your Father.

10:30 But the very hairs of your head are all numbered.

10:31 Fear ye not therefore, ye are of more value than many


10:32 Whosoever therefore shall confess me before men, him will

I confess also before my Father which is in heaven.

10:33 But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also

deny before my Father which is in heaven.

10:34 Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came

not to send peace, but a sword.

10:35 For I am come to set a man at variance against his father,

and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter in law

against her mother in law.

10:36 And a man's foes [shall be] they of his own household.

10:37 He that loveth father or mother more than me is not worthy

of me: and he that loveth son or daughter more than me is not

worthy of me.

10:38 And he that taketh not his cross, and followeth after me,

is not worthy of me.

10:39 He that findeth his life shall lose it: and he that loseth

his life for my sake shall find it.

10:40 He that receiveth you receiveth me, and he that receiveth

me receiveth him that sent me.

10:41 He that receiveth a prophet in the name of a prophet shall

receive a prophet's reward; and he that receiveth a righteous

man in the name of a righteous man shall receive a righteous

man's reward.

10:42 And whosoever shall give to drink unto one of these little

ones a cup of cold [water] only in the name of a disciple,

verily I say unto you, he shall in no wise lose his reward.

11:1 And it came to pass, when Jesus had made an end of

commanding his twelve disciples, he departed thence to teach

and to preach in their cities.

11:2 Now when John had heard in the prison the works of Christ,

he sent two of his disciples,

11:3 And said unto him, Art thou he that should come, or do we

look for another?

11:4 Jesus answered and said unto them, Go and shew John again

those things which ye do hear and see:

11:5 The blind receive their sight, and the lame walk, the

lepers are cleansed, and the deaf hear, the dead are raised up,

and the poor have the gospel preached to them.

11:6 And blessed is [he], whosoever shall not be offended in me.

11:7 And as they departed, Jesus began to say unto the

multitudes concerning John, What went ye out into the

wilderness to see? A reed shaken with the wind?

11:8 But what went ye out for to see? A man clothed in soft

raiment? behold, they that wear soft [clothing] are in kings'


11:9 But what went ye out for to see? A prophet? yea, I say unto

you, and more than a prophet.

11:10 For this is [he], of whom it is written, Behold, I send my

messenger before thy face, which shall prepare thy way before


11:11 Verily I say unto you, Among them that are born of women

there hath not risen a greater than John the Baptist:

notwithstanding he that is least in the kingdom of heaven is

greater than he.

11:12 And from the days of John the Baptist until now the

kingdom of heaven suffereth violence, and the violent take it

by force.

11:13 For all the prophets and the law prophesied until John.

11:14 And if ye will receive [it], this is Elias, which was for

to come.

11:15 He that hath ears to hear, let him hear.

11:16 But whereunto shall I liken this generation? It is like

unto children sitting in the markets, and calling unto their


11:17 And saying, We have piped unto you, and ye have not

danced; we have mourned unto you, and ye have not lamented.

11:18 For John came neither eating nor drinking, and they say,

He hath a devil.

11:19 The Son of man came eating and drinking, and they say,

Behold a man gluttonous, and a winebibber, a friend of

publicans and sinners. But wisdom is justified of her children.

11:20 Then began he to upbraid the cities wherein most of his

mighty works were done, because they repented not:

11:21 Woe unto thee, Chorazin! woe unto thee, Bethsaida! for if

the mighty works, which were done in you, had been done in Tyre

and Sidon, they would have repented long ago in sackcloth and


11:22 But I say unto you, It shall be more tolerable for Tyre

and Sidon at the day of judgment, than for you.

11:23 And thou, Capernaum, which art exalted unto heaven, shalt

be brought down to hell: for if the mighty works, which have

been done in thee, had been done in Sodom, it would have

remained until this day.

11:24 But I say unto you, That it shall be more tolerable for

the land of Sodom in the day of judgment, than for thee.

11:25 At that time Jesus answered and said, I thank thee, O

Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because thou hast hid these

things from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them unto


11:26 Even so, Father: for so it seemed good in thy sight.

11:27 All things are delivered unto me of my Father: and no man

knoweth the Son, but the Father; neither knoweth any man the

Father, save the Son, and [he] to whomsoever the Son will

reveal [him].

11:28 Come unto me, all [ye] that labour and are heavy laden,

and I will give you rest.

11:29 Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and

lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.

11:30 For my yoke [is] easy, and my burden is light.

12:1 At that time Jesus went on the sabbath day through the

corn; and his disciples were an hungred, and began to pluck the

ears of corn, and to eat.

12:2 But when the Pharisees saw [it], they said unto him,

Behold, thy disciples do that which is not lawful to do upon

the sabbath day.

12:3 But he said unto them, Have ye not read what David did,

when he was an hungred, and they that were with him;

12:4 How he entered into the house of God, and did eat the

shewbread, which was not lawful for him to eat, neither for

them which were with him, but only for the priests?

12:5 Or have ye not read in the law, how that on the sabbath

days the priests in the temple profane the sabbath, and are


12:6 But I say unto you, That in this place is [one] greater

than the temple.

12:7 But if ye had known what [this] meaneth, I will have mercy,

and not sacrifice, ye would not have condemned the guiltless.

12:8 For the Son of man is Lord even of the sabbath day.

12:9 And when he was departed thence, he went into their


12:10 And, behold, there was a man which had [his] hand

withered. And they asked him, saying, Is it lawful to heal on

the sabbath days? that they might accuse him.

12:11 And he said unto them, What man shall there be among you,

that shall have one sheep, and if it fall into a pit on the

sabbath day, will he not lay hold on it, and lift [it] out?

12:12 How much then is a man better than a sheep? Wherefore it

is lawful to do well on the sabbath days.

12:13 Then saith he to the man, Stretch forth thine hand. And he

stretched [it] forth; and it was restored whole, like as the


12:14 Then the Pharisees went out, and held a council against

him, how they might destroy him.

12:15 But when Jesus knew [it], he withdrew himself from thence:

and great multitudes followed him, and he healed them all;

12:16 And charged them that they should not make him known:

12:17 That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Esaias the

prophet, saying,

12:18 Behold my servant, whom I have chosen; my beloved, in whom

my soul is well pleased: I will put my spirit upon him, and he

shall shew judgment to the Gentiles.

12:19 He shall not strive, nor cry; neither shall any man hear

his voice in the streets.

12:20 A bruised reed shall he not break, and smoking flax shall

he not quench, till he send forth judgment unto victory.

12:21 And in his name shall the Gentiles trust.

12:22 Then was brought unto him one possessed with a devil,

blind, and dumb: and he healed him, insomuch that the blind and

dumb both spake and saw.

12:23 And all the people were amazed, and said, Is not this the

son of David?

12:24 But when the Pharisees heard [it], they said, This

[fellow] doth not cast out devils, but by Beelzebub the prince

of the devils.

12:25 And Jesus knew their thoughts, and said unto them, Every

kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and

every city or house divided against itself shall not stand:

12:26 And if Satan cast out Satan, he is divided against

himself; how shall then his kingdom stand?

12:27 And if I by Beelzebub cast out devils, by whom do your

children cast [them] out? therefore they shall be your judges.

12:28 But if I cast out devils by the Spirit of God, then the

kingdom of God is come unto you.

12:29 Or else how can one enter into a strong man's house, and

spoil his goods, except he first bind the strong man? and then

he will spoil his house.

12:30 He that is not with me is against me; and he that

gathereth not with me scattereth abroad.

12:31 Wherefore I say unto you, All manner of sin and blasphemy

shall be forgiven unto men: but the blasphemy [against] the

[Holy] Ghost shall not be forgiven unto men.

12:32 And whosoever speaketh a word against the Son of man, it

shall be forgiven him: but whosoever speaketh against the Holy

Ghost, it shall not be forgiven him, neither in this world,

neither in the [world] to come.

12:33 Either make the tree good, and his fruit good; or else

make the tree corrupt, and his fruit corrupt: for the tree is

known by [his] fruit.

12:34 O generation of vipers, how can ye, being evil, speak good

things? for out of the abundance of the heart the mouth


12:35 A good man out of the good treasure of the heart bringeth

forth good things: and an evil man out of the evil treasure

bringeth forth evil things.

12:36 But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall

speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment.

12:37 For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words

thou shalt be condemned.

12:38 Then certain of the scribes and of the Pharisees answered,

saying, Master, we would see a sign from thee.

12:39 But he answered and said unto them, An evil and adulterous

generation seeketh after a sign; and there shall no sign be

given to it, but the sign of the prophet Jonas:

12:40 For as Jonas was three days and three nights in the

whale's belly; so shall the Son of man be three days and three

nights in the heart of the earth.

12:41 The men of Nineveh shall rise in judgment with this

generation, and shall condemn it: because they repented at the

preaching of Jonas; and, behold, a greater than Jonas [is]


12:42 The queen of the south shall rise up in the judgment with

this generation, and shall condemn it: for she came from the

uttermost parts of the earth to hear the wisdom of Solomon;

and, behold, a greater than Solomon [is] here.

12:43 When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walketh

through dry places, seeking rest, and findeth none.

12:44 Then he saith, I will return into my house from whence I

came out; and when he is come, he findeth [it] empty, swept,

and garnished.

12:45 Then goeth he, and taketh with himself seven other spirits

more wicked than himself, and they enter in and dwell there:

and the last [state] of that man is worse than the first. Even

so shall it be also unto this wicked generation.

12:46 While he yet talked to the people, behold, [his] mother

and his brethren stood without, desiring to speak with him.

12:47 Then one said unto him, Behold, thy mother and thy

brethren stand without, desiring to speak with thee.

12:48 But he answered and said unto him that told him, Who is my

mother? and who are my brethren?

12:49 And he stretched forth his hand toward his disciples, and

said, Behold my mother and my brethren!

12:50 For whosoever shall do the will of my Father which is in

heaven, the same is my brother, and sister, and mother.

13:1 The same day went Jesus out of the house, and sat by the

sea side.

13:2 And great multitudes were gathered together unto him, so

that he went into a ship, and sat; and the whole multitude

stood on the shore.

13:3 And he spake many things unto them in parables, saying,

Behold, a sower went forth to sow;

13:4 And when he sowed, some [seeds] fell by the way side, and

the fowls came and devoured them up:

13:5 Some fell upon stony places, where they had not much earth:

and forthwith they sprung up, because they had no deepness of


13:6 And when the sun was up, they were scorched; and because

they had no root, they withered away.

13:7 And some fell among thorns; and the thorns sprung up, and

choked them:

13:8 But other fell into good ground, and brought forth fruit,

some an hundredfold, some sixtyfold, some thirtyfold.

13:9 Who hath ears to hear, let him hear.

13:10 And the disciples came, and said unto him, Why speakest

thou unto them in parables?

13:11 He answered and said unto them, Because it is given unto

you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them

it is not given.

13:12 For whosoever hath, to him shall be given, and he shall

have more abundance: but whosoever hath not, from him shall be

taken away even that he hath.

13:13 Therefore speak I to them in parables: because they seeing

see not; and hearing they hear not, neither do they understand.

13:14 And in them is fulfilled the prophecy of Esaias, which

saith, By hearing ye shall hear, and shall not understand; and

seeing ye shall see, and shall not perceive:

13:15 For this people's heart is waxed gross, and [their] ears

are dull of hearing, and their eyes they have closed; lest at

any time they should see with [their] eyes, and hear with

[their] ears, and should understand with [their] heart, and

should be converted, and I should heal them.

13:16 But blessed [are] your eyes, for they see: and your ears,

for they hear.

13:17 For verily I say unto you, That many prophets and

righteous [men] 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].

13:18 Hear ye therefore the parable of the sower.

13:19 When any one heareth the word of the kingdom, and

understandeth [it] not, then cometh the wicked [one], and

catcheth away that which was sown in his heart. This is he

which received seed by the way side.

13:20 But he that received the seed into stony places, the same

is he that heareth the word, and anon with joy receiveth it;

13:21 Yet hath he not root in himself, but dureth for a while:

for when tribulation or persecution ariseth because of the

word, by and by he is offended.

13:22 He also that received seed among the thorns is he that

heareth the word; and the care of this world, and the

deceitfulness of riches, choke the word, and he becometh


13:23 But he that received seed into the good ground is he that

heareth the word, and understandeth [it]; which also beareth

fruit, and bringeth forth, some an hundredfold, some sixty,

some thirty.

13:24 Another parable put he forth unto them, saying, The

kingdom of heaven is likened unto a man which sowed good seed

in his field:

13:25 But while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among

the wheat, and went his way.

13:26 But when the blade was sprung up, and brought forth fruit,

then appeared the tares also.

13:27 So the servants of the householder came and said unto him,

Sir, didst not thou sow good seed in thy field? from whence

then hath it tares?

13:28 He said unto them, An enemy hath done this. The servants

said unto him, Wilt thou then that we go and gather them up?

13:29 But he said, Nay; lest while ye gather up the tares, ye

root up also the wheat with them.

13:30 Let both grow together until the harvest: and in the time

of harvest I will say to the reapers, Gather ye together first

the tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them: but gather

the wheat into my barn.

13:31 Another parable put he forth unto them, saying, The

kingdom of heaven is like to a grain of mustard seed, which a

man took, and sowed in his field:

13:32 Which indeed is the least of all seeds: but when it is

grown, it is the greatest among herbs, and becometh a tree, so

that the birds of the air come and lodge in the branches


13:33 Another parable spake he unto them; The kingdom of heaven

is like unto leaven, which a woman took, and hid in three

measures of meal, till the whole was leavened.

13:34 All these things spake Jesus unto the multitude in

parables; and without a parable spake he not unto them:

13:35 That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the

prophet, saying, I will open my mouth in parables; I will utter

things which have been kept secret from the foundation of the


13:36 Then Jesus sent the multitude away, and went into the

house: and his disciples came unto him, saying, Declare unto us

the parable of the tares of the field.

13:37 He answered and said unto them, He that soweth the good

seed is the Son of man;

13:38 The field is the world; the good seed are the children of

the kingdom; but the tares are the children of the wicked


13:39 The enemy that sowed them is the devil; the harvest is the

end of the world; and the reapers are the angels.

13:40 As therefore the tares are gathered and burned in the

fire; so shall it be in the end of this world.

13:41 The Son of man shall send forth his angels, and they shall

gather out of his kingdom all things that offend, and them

which do iniquity;

13:42 And shall cast them into a furnace of fire: there shall be

wailing and gnashing of teeth.

13:43 Then shall the righteous shine forth as the sun in the

kingdom of their Father. Who hath ears to hear, let him hear.

13:44 Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto treasure hid in

a field; the which when a man hath found, he hideth, and for

joy thereof goeth and selleth all that he hath, and buyeth that


13:45 Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a merchant man,

seeking goodly pearls:

13:46 Who, when he had found one pearl of great price, went and

sold all that he had, and bought it.

13:47 Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a net, that was

cast into the sea, and gathered of every kind:

13:48 Which, when it was full, they drew to shore, and sat down,

and gathered the good into vessels, but cast the bad away.

13:49 So shall it be at the end of the world: the angels shall

come forth, and sever the wicked from among the just,

13:50 And shall cast them into the furnace of fire: there shall

be wailing and gnashing of teeth.

13:51 Jesus saith unto them, Have ye understood all these

things? They say unto him, Yea, Lord.

13:52 Then said he unto them, Therefore every scribe [which is]

instructed unto the kingdom of heaven is like unto a man [that

is] an householder, which bringeth forth out of his treasure

[things] new and old.

13:53 And it came to pass, [that] when Jesus had finished these

parables, he departed thence.

13:54 And when he was come into his own country, he taught them

in their synagogue, insomuch that they were astonished, and

said, Whence hath this [man] this wisdom, and [these] mighty


13:55 Is not this the carpenter's son? is not his mother called

Mary? and his brethren, James, and Joses, and Simon, and Judas?

13:56 And his sisters, are they not all with us? Whence then

hath this [man] all these things?

13:57 And they were offended in him. But Jesus said unto them, A

prophet is not without honour, save in his own country, and in

his own house.

13:58 And he did not many mighty works there because of their


14:1 At that time Herod the tetrarch heard of the fame of Jesus,

14:2 And said unto his servants, This is John the Baptist; he is

risen from the dead; and therefore mighty works do shew forth

themselves in him.

14:3 For Herod had laid hold on John, and bound him, and put

[him] in prison for Herodias' sake, his brother Philip's wife.

14:4 For John said unto him, It is not lawful for thee to have


14:5 And when he would have put him to death, he feared the

multitude, because they counted him as a prophet.

14:6 But when Herod's birthday was kept, the daughter of

Herodias danced before them, and pleased Herod.

14:7 Whereupon he promised with an oath to give her whatsoever

she would ask.

14:8 And she, being before instructed of her mother, said, Give

me here John Baptist's head in a charger.

14:9 And the king was sorry: nevertheless for the oath's sake,

and them which sat with him at meat, he commanded [it] to be

given [her].

14:10 And he sent, and beheaded John in the prison.

14:11 And his head was brought in a charger, and given to the

damsel: and she brought [it] to her mother.

14:12 And his disciples came, and took up the body, and buried

it, and went and told Jesus.

14:13 When Jesus heard [of it], he departed thence by ship into

a desert place apart: and when the people had heard [thereof],

they followed him on foot out of the cities.

14:14 And Jesus went forth, and saw a great multitude, and was

moved with compassion toward them, and he healed their sick.

14:15 And when it was evening, his disciples came to him,

saying, This is a desert place, and the time is now past; send

the multitude away, that they may go into the villages, and buy

themselves victuals.

14:16 But Jesus said unto them, They need not depart; give ye

them to eat.

14:17 And they say unto him, We have here but five loaves, and

two fishes.

14:18 He said, Bring them hither to me.

14:19 And he commanded the multitude to sit down on the grass,

and took the five loaves, and the two fishes, and looking up to

heaven, he blessed, and brake, and gave the loaves to [his]

disciples, and the disciples to the multitude.

14:20 And they did all eat, and were filled: and they took up of

the fragments that remained twelve baskets full.

14:21 And they that had eaten were about five thousand men,

beside women and children.

14:22 And straightway Jesus constrained his disciples to get

into a ship, and to go before him unto the other side, while he

sent the multitudes away.

14:23 And when he had sent the multitudes away, he went up into

a mountain apart to pray: and when the evening was come, he was

there alone.

14:24 But the ship was now in the midst of the sea, tossed with

waves: for the wind was contrary.

14:25 And in the fourth watch of the night Jesus went unto them,

walking on the sea.

14:26 And when the disciples saw him walking on the sea, they

were troubled, saying, It is a spirit; and they cried out for


14:27 But straightway Jesus spake unto them, saying, Be of good

cheer; it is I; be not afraid.

14:28 And Peter answered him and said, Lord, if it be thou, bid

me come unto thee on the water.

14:29 And he said, Come. And when Peter was come down out of the

ship, he walked on the water, to go to Jesus.

14:30 But when he saw the wind boisterous, he was afraid; and

beginning to sink, he cried, saying, Lord, save me.

14:31 And immediately Jesus stretched forth [his] hand, and

caught him, and said unto him, O thou of little faith,

wherefore didst thou doubt?

14:32 And when they were come into the ship, the wind ceased.

14:33 Then they that were in the ship came and worshipped him,

saying, Of a truth thou art the Son of God.

14:34 And when they were gone over, they came into the land of


14:35 And when the men of that place had knowledge of him, they

sent out into all that country round about, and brought unto

him all that were diseased;

14:36 And besought him that they might only touch the hem of his

garment: and as many as touched were made perfectly whole.

15:1 Then came to Jesus scribes and Pharisees, which were of

Jerusalem, saying,

15:2 Why do thy disciples transgress the tradition of the

elders? for they wash not their hands when they eat bread.

15:3 But he answered and said unto them, Why do ye also

transgress the commandment of God by your tradition?

15:4 For God commanded, saying, Honour thy father and mother:

and, He that curseth father or mother, let him die the death.

15:5 But ye say, Whosoever shall say to [his] father or [his]

mother, [It is] a gift, by whatsoever thou mightest be profited

by me;

15:6 And honour not his father or his mother, [he shall be

free]. Thus have ye made the commandment of God of none effect

by your tradition.

15:7 [Ye] hypocrites, well did Esaias prophesy of you, saying,

15:8 This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and

honoureth me with [their] lips; but their heart is far from me.

15:9 But in vain they do worship me, teaching [for] doctrines

the commandments of men.

15:10 And he called the multitude, and said unto them, Hear, and


15:11 Not that which goeth into the mouth defileth a man; but

that which cometh out of the mouth, this defileth a man.

15:12 Then came his disciples, and said unto him, Knowest thou

that the Pharisees were offended, after they heard this saying?

15:13 But he answered and said, Every plant, which my heavenly

Father hath not planted, shall be rooted up.

15:14 Let them alone: they be blind leaders of the blind. And if

the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch.

15:15 Then answered Peter and said unto him, Declare unto us

this parable.

15:16 And Jesus said, Are ye also yet without understanding?

15:17 Do not ye yet understand, that whatsoever entereth in at

the mouth goeth into the belly, and is cast out into the


15:18 But those things which proceed out of the mouth come forth

from the heart; and they defile the man.

15:19 For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders,

adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, blasphemies:

15:20 These are [the things] which defile a man: but to eat with

unwashen hands defileth not a man.

15:21 Then Jesus went thence, and departed into the coasts of

Tyre and Sidon.

15:22 And, behold, a woman of Canaan came out of the same

coasts, and cried unto him, saying, Have mercy on me, O Lord,

[thou] Son of David; my daughter is grievously vexed with a


15:23 But he answered her not a word. And his disciples came and

besought him, saying, Send her away; for she crieth after us.

15:24 But he answered and said, I am not sent but unto the lost

sheep of the house of Israel.

15:25 Then came she and worshipped him, saying, Lord, help me.

15:26 But he answered and said, It is not meet to take the

children's bread, and to cast [it] to dogs.

15:27 And she said, Truth, Lord: yet the dogs eat of the crumbs

which fall from their masters' table.

15:28 Then Jesus answered and said unto her, O woman, great [is]

thy faith: be it unto thee even as thou wilt. And her daughter

was made whole from that very hour.

15:29 And Jesus departed from thence, and came nigh unto the sea

of Galilee; and went up into a mountain, and sat down there.

15:30 And great multitudes came unto him, having with them

[those that were] lame, blind, dumb, maimed, and many others,

and cast them down at Jesus' feet; and he healed them:

15:31 Insomuch that the multitude wondered, when they saw the

dumb to speak, the maimed to be whole, the lame to walk, and

the blind to see: and they glorified the God of Israel.

15:32 Then Jesus called his disciples [unto him], and said, I

have compassion on the multitude, because they continue with me

now three days, and have nothing to eat: and I will not send

them away fasting, lest they faint in the way.

15:33 And his disciples say unto him, Whence should we have so

much bread in the wilderness, as to fill so great a multitude?

15:34 And Jesus saith unto them, How many loaves have ye? And

they said, Seven, and a few little fishes.

15:35 And he commanded the multitude to sit down on the ground.

15:36 And he took the seven loaves and the fishes, and gave

thanks, and brake [them], and gave to his disciples, and the

disciples to the multitude.

15:37 And they did all eat, and were filled: and they took up of

the broken [meat] that was left seven baskets full.

15:38 And they that did eat were four thousand men, beside women

and children.

15:39 And he sent away the multitude, and took ship, and came

into the coasts of Magdala.

16:1 The Pharisees also with the Sadducees came, and tempting

desired him that he would shew them a sign from heaven.

16:2 He answered and said unto them, When it is evening, ye say,

[It will be] fair weather: for the sky is red.

16:3 And in the morning, [It will be] foul weather to day: for

the sky is red and lowring. O [ye] hypocrites, ye can discern

the face of the sky; but can ye not [discern] the signs of the


16:4 A wicked and adulterous generation seeketh after a sign;

and there shall no sign be given unto it, but the sign of the

prophet Jonas. And he left them, and departed.

16:5 And when his disciples were come to the other side, they

had forgotten to take bread.

16:6 Then Jesus said unto them, Take heed and beware of the

leaven of the Pharisees and of the Sadducees.

16:7 And they reasoned among themselves, saying, [It is] because

we have taken no bread.

16:8 [Which] when Jesus perceived, he said unto them, O ye of

little faith, why reason ye among yourselves, because ye have

brought no bread?

16:9 Do ye not yet understand, neither remember the five loaves

of the five thousand, and how many baskets ye took up?

16:10 Neither the seven loaves of the four thousand, and how

many baskets ye took up?

16:11 How is it that ye do not understand that I spake [it] not

to you concerning bread, that ye should beware of the leaven of

the Pharisees and of the Sadducees?

16:12 Then understood they how that he bade [them] not beware of

the leaven of bread, but of the doctrine of the Pharisees and

of the Sadducees.

16:13 When Jesus came into the coasts of Caesarea Philippi, he

asked his disciples, saying, Whom do men say that I the Son of

man am?

16:14 And they said, Some [say that thou art] John the Baptist:

some, Elias; and others, Jeremias, or one of the prophets.

16:15 He saith unto them, But whom say ye that I am?

16:16 And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ,

the Son of the living God.

16:17 And Jesus answered and said unto him, Blessed art thou,

Simon Barjona: for flesh and blood hath not revealed [it] unto

thee, but my Father which is in heaven.

16:18 And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon

this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall

not prevail against it.

16:19 And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of

heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound

in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be

loosed in heaven.

16:20 Then charged he his disciples that they should tell no man

that he was Jesus the Christ.

16:21 From that time forth began Jesus to shew unto his

disciples, how that he must go unto Jerusalem, and suffer many

things of the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be

killed, and be raised again the third day.

16:22 Then Peter took him, and began to rebuke him, saying, Be

it far from thee, Lord: this shall not be unto thee.

16:23 But he turned, and said unto Peter, Get thee behind me,

Satan: thou art an offence unto me: for thou savourest not the

things that be of God, but those that be of men.

16:24 Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any [man] will come

after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and

follow me.

16:25 For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: and

whosoever will lose his life for my sake shall find it.

16:26 For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole

world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in

exchange for his soul?

16:27 For the Son of man shall come in the glory of his Father

with his angels; and then he shall reward every man according

to his works.

16:28 Verily I say unto you, There be some standing here, which

shall not taste of death, till they see the Son of man coming

in his kingdom.

17:1 And after six days Jesus taketh Peter, James, and John his

brother, and bringeth them up into an high mountain apart,

17:2 And was transfigured before them: and his face did shine as

the sun, and his raiment was white as the light.

17:3 And, behold, there appeared unto them Moses and Elias

talking with him.

17:4 Then answered Peter, and said unto Jesus, Lord, it is good

for us to be here: if thou wilt, let us make here three

tabernacles; one for thee, and one for Moses, and one for


17:5 While he yet spake, behold, a bright cloud overshadowed

them: and behold a voice out of the cloud, which said, This is

my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased; hear ye him.

17:6 And when the disciples heard [it], they fell on their face,

and were sore afraid.

17:7 And Jesus came and touched them, and said, Arise, and be

not afraid.

17:8 And when they had lifted up their eyes, they saw no man,

save Jesus only.

17:9 And as they came down from the mountain, Jesus charged

them, saying, Tell the vision to no man, until the Son of man

be risen again from the dead.

17:10 And his disciples asked him, saying, Why then say the

scribes that Elias must first come?

17:11 And Jesus answered and said unto them, Elias truly shall

first come, and restore all things.

17:12 But I say unto you, That Elias is come already, and they

knew him not, but have done unto him whatsoever they listed.

Likewise shall also the Son of man suffer of them.

17:13 Then the disciples understood that he spake unto them of

John the Baptist.

17:14 And when they were come to the multitude, there came to

him a [certain] man, kneeling down to him, and saying,

17:15 Lord, have mercy on my son: for he is lunatick, and sore

vexed: for ofttimes he falleth into the fire, and oft into the


17:16 And I brought him to thy disciples, and they could not

cure him.

17:17 Then Jesus answered and said, O faithless and perverse

generation, how long shall I be with you? how long shall I

suffer you? bring him hither to me.

17:18 And Jesus rebuked the devil; and he departed out of him:

and the child was cured from that very hour.

17:19 Then came the disciples to Jesus apart, and said, Why

could not we cast him out?

17:20 And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for

verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard

seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder

place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible

unto you.

17:21 Howbeit this kind goeth not out but by prayer and fasting.

17:22 And while they abode in Galilee, Jesus said unto them, The

Son of man shall be betrayed into the hands of men:

17:23 And they shall kill him, and the third day he shall be

raised again. And they were exceeding sorry.

17:24 And when they were come to Capernaum, they that received

tribute [money] came to Peter, and said, Doth not your master

pay tribute?

17:25 He saith, Yes. And when he was come into the house, Jesus

prevented him, saying, What thinkest thou, Simon? of whom do

the kings of the earth take custom or tribute? of their own

children, or of strangers?

17:26 Peter saith unto him, Of strangers. Jesus saith unto him,

Then are the children free.

17:27 Notwithstanding, lest we should offend them, go thou to

the sea, and cast an hook, and take up the fish that first

cometh up; and when thou hast opened his mouth, thou shalt find

a piece of money: that take, and give unto them for me and


18:1 At the same time came the disciples unto Jesus, saying, Who

is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven?

18:2 And Jesus called a little child unto him, and set him in

the midst of them,

18:3 And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted,

and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the

kingdom of heaven.

18:4 Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little

child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven.

18:5 And whoso shall receive one such little child in my name

receiveth me.

18:6 But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which

believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were

hanged about his neck, and [that] he were drowned in the depth

of the sea.

18:7 Woe unto the world because of offences! for it must needs

be that offences come; but woe to that man by whom the offence


18:8 Wherefore if thy hand or thy foot offend thee, cut them

off, and cast [them] from thee: it is better for thee to enter

into life halt or maimed, rather than having two hands or two

feet to be cast into everlasting fire.

18:9 And if thine eye offend thee, pluck it out, and cast [it]

from thee: it is better for thee to enter into life with one

eye, rather than having two eyes to be cast into hell fire.

18:10 Take heed that ye despise not one of these little ones;

for I say unto you, That in heaven their angels do always

behold the face of my Father which is in heaven.

18:11 For the Son of man is come to save that which was lost.

18:12 How think ye? if a man have an hundred sheep, and one of

them be gone astray, doth he not leave the ninety and nine, and

goeth into the mountains, and seeketh that which is gone


18:13 And if so be that he find it, verily I say unto you, he

rejoiceth more of that [sheep], than of the ninety and nine

which went not astray.

18:14 Even so it is not the will of your Father which is in

heaven, that one of these little ones should perish.

18:15 Moreover if thy brother shall trespass against thee, go

and tell him his fault between thee and him alone: if he shall

hear thee, thou hast gained thy brother.

18:16 But if he will not hear [thee, then] take with thee one or

two more, that in the mouth of two or three witnesses every

word may be established.

18:17 And if he shall neglect to hear them, tell [it] unto the

church: but if he neglect to hear the church, let him be unto

thee as an heathen man and a publican.

18:18 Verily I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall bind on earth

shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever ye shall loose on

earth shall be loosed in heaven.

18:19 Again I say unto you, That if two of you shall agree on

earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be

done for them of my Father which is in heaven.

18:20 For where two or three are gathered together in my name,

there am I in the midst of them.

18:21 Then came Peter to him, and said, Lord, how oft shall my

brother sin against me, and I forgive him? till seven times?

18:22 Jesus saith unto him, I say not unto thee, Until seven

times: but, Until seventy times seven.

18:23 Therefore is the kingdom of heaven likened unto a certain

king, which would take account of his servants.

18:24 And when he had begun to reckon, one was brought unto him,

which owed him ten thousand talents.

18:25 But forasmuch as he had not to pay, his lord commanded him

to be sold, and his wife, and children, and all that he had,

and payment to be made.

18:26 The servant therefore fell down, and worshipped him,

saying, Lord, have patience with me, and I will pay thee all.

18:27 Then the lord of that servant was moved with compassion,

and loosed him, and forgave him the debt.

18:28 But the same servant went out, and found one of his

fellowservants, which owed him an hundred pence: and he laid

hands on him, and took [him] by the throat, saying, Pay me that

thou owest.

18:29 And his fellowservant fell down at his feet, and besought

him, saying, Have patience with me, and I will pay thee all.

18:30 And he would not: but went and cast him into prison, till

he should pay the debt.

18:31 So when his fellowservants saw what was done, they were

very sorry, and came and told unto their lord all that was


18:32 Then his lord, after that he had called him, said unto

him, O thou wicked servant, I forgave thee all that debt,

because thou desiredst me:

18:33 Shouldest not thou also have had compassion on thy

fellowservant, even as I had pity on thee?

18:34 And his lord was wroth, and delivered him to the

tormentors, till he should pay all that was due unto him.

18:35 So likewise shall my heavenly Father do also unto you, if

ye from your hearts forgive not every one his brother their


19:1 And it came to pass, [that] when Jesus had finished these

sayings, he departed from Galilee, and came into the coasts of

Judaea beyond Jordan;

19:2 And great multitudes followed him; and he healed them


19:3 The Pharisees also came unto him, tempting him, and saying

unto him, Is it lawful for a man to put away his wife for every


19:4 And he answered and said unto them, Have ye not read, that

he which made [them] at the beginning made them male and


19:5 And said, For this cause shall a man leave father and

mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they twain shall be

one flesh?

19:6 Wherefore they are no more twain, but one flesh. What

therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder.

19:7 They say unto him, Why did Moses then command to give a

writing of divorcement, and to put her away?

19:8 He saith unto them, Moses because of the hardness of your

hearts suffered you to put away your wives: but from the

beginning it was not so.

19:9 And I say unto you, Whosoever shall put away his wife,

except [it be] for fornication, and shall marry another,

committeth adultery: and whoso marrieth her which is put away

doth commit adultery.

19:10 His disciples say unto him, If the case of the man be so

with [his] wife, it is not good to marry.

19:11 But he said unto them, All [men] cannot receive this

saying, save [they] to whom it is given.

19:12 For there are some eunuchs, which were so born from

[their] mother's womb: and there are some eunuchs, which were

made eunuchs of men: and there be eunuchs, which have made

themselves eunuchs for the kingdom of heaven's sake. He that is

able to receive [it], let him receive [it].

19:13 Then were there brought unto him little children, that he

should put [his] hands on them, and pray: and the disciples

rebuked them.

19:14 But Jesus said, Suffer little children, and forbid them

not, to come unto me: for of such is the kingdom of heaven.

19:15 And he laid [his] hands on them, and departed thence.

19:16 And, behold, one came and said unto him, Good Master, what

good thing shall I do, that I may have eternal life?

19:17 And he said unto him, Why callest thou me good? [there is]

none good but one, [that is], God: but if thou wilt enter into

life, keep the commandments.

19:18 He saith unto him, Which? Jesus said, Thou shalt do no

murder, Thou shalt not commit adultery, Thou shalt not steal,

Thou shalt not bear false witness,

19:19 Honour thy father and [thy] mother: and, Thou shalt love

thy neighbour as thyself.

19:20 The young man saith unto him, All these things have I kept

from my youth up: what lack I yet?

19:21 Jesus said unto him, If thou wilt be perfect, go [and]

sell that thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have

treasure in heaven: and come [and] follow me.

19:22 But when the young man heard that saying, he went away

sorrowful: for he had great possessions.

19:23 Then said Jesus unto his disciples, Verily I say unto you,

That a rich man shall hardly enter into the kingdom of heaven.

19:24 And again I say unto you, It is easier for a camel to go

through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into

the kingdom of God.

19:25 When his disciples heard [it], they were exceedingly

amazed, saying, Who then can be saved?

19:26 But Jesus beheld [them], and said unto them, With men this

is impossible; but with God all things are possible.

19:27 Then answered Peter and said unto him, Behold, we have

forsaken all, and followed thee; what shall we have therefore?

19:28 And Jesus said unto them, Verily I say unto you, That ye

which have followed me, in the regeneration when the Son of man

shall sit in the throne of his glory, ye also shall sit upon

twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel.

19:29 And every one that hath forsaken houses, or brethren, or

sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands,

for my name's sake, shall receive an hundredfold, and shall

inherit everlasting life.

19:30 But many [that are] first shall be last; and the last

[shall be] first.

20:1 For the kingdom of heaven is like unto a man [that is] an

householder, which went out early in the morning to hire

labourers into his vineyard.

20:2 And when he had agreed with the labourers for a penny a

day, he sent them into his vineyard.

20:3 And he went out about the third hour, and saw others

standing idle in the marketplace,

20:4 And said unto them; Go ye also into the vineyard, and

whatsoever is right I will give you. And they went their way.

20:5 Again he went out about the sixth and ninth hour, and did


20:6 And about the eleventh hour he went out, and found others

standing idle, and saith unto them, Why stand ye here all the

day idle?

20:7 They say unto him, Because no man hath hired us. He saith

unto them, Go ye also into the vineyard; and whatsoever is

right, [that] shall ye receive.

20:8 So when even was come, the lord of the vineyard saith unto

his steward, Call the labourers, and give them [their] hire,

beginning from the last unto the first.

20:9 And when they came that [were hired] about the eleventh

hour, they received every man a penny.

20:10 But when the first came, they supposed that they should

have received more; and they likewise received every man a


20:11 And when they had received [it], they murmured against the

goodman of the house,

20:12 Saying, These last have wrought [but] one hour, and thou

hast made them equal unto us, which have borne the burden and

heat of the day.

20:13 But he answered one of them, and said, Friend, I do thee

no wrong: didst not thou agree with me for a penny?

20:14 Take [that] thine [is], and go thy way: I will give unto

this last, even as unto thee.

20:15 Is it not lawful for me to do what I will with mine own?

Is thine eye evil, because I am good?

20:16 So the last shall be first, and the first last: for many

be called, but few chosen.

20:17 And Jesus going up to Jerusalem took the twelve disciples

apart in the way, and said unto them,

20:18 Behold, we go up to Jerusalem; and the Son of man shall be

betrayed unto the chief priests and unto the scribes, and they

shall condemn him to death,

20:19 And shall deliver him to the Gentiles to mock, and to

scourge, and to crucify [him]: and the third day he shall rise


20:20 Then came to him the mother of Zebedee's children with her

sons, worshipping [him], and desiring a certain thing of him.

20:21 And he said unto her, What wilt thou? She saith unto him,

Grant that these my two sons may sit, the one on thy right

hand, and the other on the left, in thy kingdom.

20:22 But Jesus answered and said, Ye know not what ye ask. Are

ye able to drink of the cup that I shall drink of, and to be

baptized with the baptism that I am baptized with? They say

unto him, We are able.

20:23 And he saith unto them, Ye shall drink indeed of my cup,

and be baptized with the baptism that I am baptized with: but

to sit on my right hand, and on my left, is not mine to give,

but [it shall be given to them] for whom it is prepared of my


20:24 And when the ten heard [it], they were moved with

indignation against the two brethren.

20:25 But Jesus called them [unto him], and said, Ye know that

the princes of the Gentiles exercise dominion over them, and

they that are great exercise authority upon them.

20:26 But it shall not be so among you: but whosoever will be

great among you, let him be your minister;

20:27 And whosoever will be chief among you, let him be your


20:28 Even as the Son of man came not to be ministered unto, but

to minister, and to give his life a ransom for many.

20:29 And as they departed from Jericho, a great multitude

followed him.

20:30 And, behold, two blind men sitting by the way side, when

they heard that Jesus passed by, cried out, saying, Have mercy

on us, O Lord, [thou] Son of David.

20:31 And the multitude rebuked them, because they should hold

their peace: but they cried the more, saying, Have mercy on us,

O Lord, [thou] Son of David.

20:32 And Jesus stood still, and called them, and said, What

will ye that I shall do unto you?

20:33 They say unto him, Lord, that our eyes may be opened.

20:34 So Jesus had compassion [on them], and touched their eyes:

and immediately their eyes received sight, and they followed


21:1 And when they drew nigh unto Jerusalem, and were come to

Bethphage, unto the mount of Olives, then sent Jesus two


21:2 Saying unto them, Go into the village over against you, and

straightway ye shall find an ass tied, and a colt with her:

loose [them], and bring [them] unto me.

21:3 And if any [man] say ought unto you, ye shall say, The Lord

hath need of them; and straightway he will send them.

21:4 All this was done, that it might be fulfilled which was

spoken by the prophet, saying,

21:5 Tell ye the daughter of Sion, Behold, thy King cometh unto

thee, meek, and sitting upon an ass, and a colt the foal of an


21:6 And the disciples went, and did as Jesus commanded them,

21:7 And brought the ass, and the colt, and put on them their

clothes, and they set [him] thereon.

21:8 And a very great multitude spread their garments in the

way; others cut down branches from the trees, and strawed

[them] in the way.

21:9 And the multitudes that went before, and that followed,

cried, saying, Hosanna to the Son of David: Blessed [is] he

that cometh in the name of the Lord; Hosanna in the highest.

21:10 And when he was come into Jerusalem, all the city was

moved, saying, Who is this?

21:11 And the multitude said, This is Jesus the prophet of

Nazareth of Galilee.

21:12 And Jesus went into the temple of God, and cast out all

them that sold and bought in the temple, and overthrew the

tables of the moneychangers, and the seats of them that sold


21:13 And said unto them, It is written, My house shall be

called the house of prayer; but ye have made it a den of


21:14 And the blind and the lame came to him in the temple; and

he healed them.

21:15 And when the chief priests and scribes saw the wonderful

things that he did, and the children crying in the temple, and

saying, Hosanna to the Son of David; they were sore displeased,

21:16 And said unto him, Hearest thou what these say? And Jesus

saith unto them, Yea; have ye never read, Out of the mouth of

babes and sucklings thou hast perfected praise?

21:17 And he left them, and went out of the city into Bethany;

and he lodged there.

21:18 Now in the morning as he returned into the city, he


21:19 And when he saw a fig tree in the way, he came to it, and

found nothing thereon, but leaves only, and said unto it, Let

no fruit grow on thee henceforward for ever. And presently the

fig tree withered away.

21:20 And when the disciples saw [it], they marvelled, saying,

How soon is the fig tree withered away!

21:21 Jesus answered and said unto them, Verily I say unto you,

If ye have faith, and doubt not, ye shall not only do this

[which is done] to the fig tree, but also if ye shall say unto

this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea;

it shall be done.

21:22 And all things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer,

believing, ye shall receive.

21:23 And when he was come into the temple, the chief priests

and the elders of the people came unto him as he was teaching,

and said, By what authority doest thou these things? and who

gave thee this authority?

21:24 And Jesus answered and said unto them, I also will ask you

one thing, which if ye tell me, I in like wise will tell you by

what authority I do these things.

21:25 The baptism of John, whence was it? from heaven, or of

men? And they reasoned with themselves, saying, If we shall

say, From heaven; he will say unto us, Why did ye not then

believe him?

21:26 But if we shall say, Of men; we fear the people; for all

hold John as a prophet.

21:27 And they answered Jesus, and said, We cannot tell. And he

said unto them, Neither tell I you by what authority I do these


21:28 But what think ye? A [certain] man had two sons; and he

came to the first, and said, Son, go work to day in my


21:29 He answered and said, I will not: but afterward he

repented, and went.

21:30 And he came to the second, and said likewise. And he

answered and said, I [go], sir: and went not.

21:31 Whether of them twain did the will of [his] father? They

say unto him, The first. Jesus saith unto them, Verily I say

unto you, That the publicans and the harlots go into the

kingdom of God before you.

21:32 For John came unto you in the way of righteousness, and ye

believed him not: but the publicans and the harlots believed

him: and ye, when ye had seen [it], repented not afterward,

that ye might believe him.

21:33 Hear another parable: There was a certain householder,

which planted a vineyard, and hedged it round about, and digged

a winepress in it, and built a tower, and let it out to

husbandmen, and went into a far country:

21:34 And when the time of the fruit drew near, he sent his

servants to the husbandmen, that they might receive the fruits

of it.

21:35 And the husbandmen took his servants, and beat one, and

killed another, and stoned another.

21:36 Again, he sent other servants more than the first: and

they did unto them likewise.

21:37 But last of all he sent unto them his son, saying, They

will reverence my son.

21:38 But when the husbandmen saw the son, they said among

themselves, This is the heir; come, let us kill him, and let us

seize on his inheritance.

21:39 And they caught him, and cast [him] out of the vineyard,

and slew [him].

21:40 When the lord therefore of the vineyard cometh, what will

he do unto those husbandmen?

21:41 They say unto him, He will miserably destroy those wicked

men, and will let out [his] vineyard unto other husbandmen,

which shall render him the fruits in their seasons.

21:42 Jesus saith unto them, Did ye never read in the

scriptures, The stone which the builders rejected, the same is

become the head of the corner: this is the Lord's doing, and it

is marvellous in our eyes?

21:43 Therefore say I unto you, The kingdom of God shall be

taken from you, and given to a nation bringing forth the fruits


21:44 And whosoever shall fall on this stone shall be broken:

but on whomsoever it shall fall, it will grind him to powder.

21:45 And when the chief priests and Pharisees had heard his

parables, they perceived that he spake of them.

21:46 But when they sought to lay hands on him, they feared the

multitude, because they took him for a prophet.

22:1 And Jesus answered and spake unto them again by parables,

and said,

22:2 The kingdom of heaven is like unto a certain king, which

made a marriage for his son,

22:3 And sent forth his servants to call them that were bidden

to the wedding: and they would not come.

22:4 Again, he sent forth other servants, saying, Tell them

which are bidden, Behold, I have prepared my dinner: my oxen

and [my] fatlings [are] killed, and all things [are] ready:

come unto the marriage.

22:5 But they made light of [it], and went their ways, one to

his farm, another to his merchandise:

22:6 And the remnant took his servants, and entreated [them]

spitefully, and slew [them].

22:7 But when the king heard [thereof], he was wroth: and he

sent forth his armies, and destroyed those murderers, and

burned up their city.

22:8 Then saith he to his servants, The wedding is ready, but

they which were bidden were not worthy.

22:9 Go ye therefore into the highways, and as many as ye shall

find, bid to the marriage.

22:10 So those servants went out into the highways, and gathered

together all as many as they found, both bad and good: and the

wedding was furnished with guests.

22:11 And when the king came in to see the guests, he saw there

a man which had not on a wedding garment:

22:12 And he saith unto him, Friend, how camest thou in hither

not having a wedding garment? And he was speechless.

22:13 Then said the king to the servants, Bind him hand and

foot, and take him away, and cast [him] into outer darkness;

there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

22:14 For many are called, but few [are] chosen.

22:15 Then went the Pharisees, and took counsel how they might

entangle him in [his] talk.

22:16 And they sent out unto him their disciples with the

Herodians, saying, Master, we know that thou art true, and

teachest the way of God in truth, neither carest thou for any

[man]: for thou regardest not the person of men.

22:17 Tell us therefore, What thinkest thou? Is it lawful to

give tribute unto Caesar, or not?

22:18 But Jesus perceived their wickedness, and said, Why tempt

ye me, [ye] hypocrites?

22:19 Shew me the tribute money. And they brought unto him a


22:20 And he saith unto them, Whose [is] this image and


22:21 They say unto him, Caesar's. Then saith he unto them,

Render therefore unto Caesar the things which are Caesar's; and

unto God the things that are God's.

22:22 When they had heard [these words], they marvelled, and

left him, and went their way.

22:23 The same day came to him the Sadducees, which say that

there is no resurrection, and asked him,

22:24 Saying, Master, Moses said, If a man die, having no

children, his brother shall marry his wife, and raise up seed

unto his brother.

22:25 Now there were with us seven brethren: and the first, when

he had married a wife, deceased, and, having no issue, left his

wife unto his brother:

22:26 Likewise the second also, and the third, unto the seventh.

22:27 And last of all the woman died also.

22:28 Therefore in the resurrection whose wife shall she be of

the seven? for they all had her.

22:29 Jesus answered and said unto them, Ye do err, not knowing

the scriptures, nor the power of God.

22:30 For in the resurrection they neither marry, nor are given

in marriage, but are as the angels of God in heaven.

22:31 But as touching the resurrection of the dead, have ye not

read that which was spoken unto you by God, saying,

22:32 I am the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God

of Jacob? God is not the God of the dead, but of the living.

22:33 And when the multitude heard [this], they were astonished

at his doctrine.

22:34 But when the Pharisees had heard that he had put the

Sadducees to silence, they were gathered together.

22:35 Then one of them, [which was] a lawyer, asked [him a

question], tempting him, and saying,

22:36 Master, which [is] the great commandment in the law?

22:37 Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with

all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.

22:38 This is the first and great commandment.

22:39 And the second [is] like unto it, Thou shalt love thy

neighbour as thyself.

22:40 On these two commandments hang all the law and the


22:41 While the Pharisees were gathered together, Jesus asked


22:42 Saying, What think ye of Christ? whose son is he? They say

unto him, [The Son] of David.

22:43 He saith unto them, How then doth David in spirit call him

Lord, saying,

22:44 The LORD said unto my Lord, Sit thou on my right hand,

till I make thine enemies thy footstool?

22:45 If David then call him Lord, how is he his son?

22:46 And no man was able to answer him a word, neither durst

any [man] from that day forth ask him any more [questions].

23:1 Then spake Jesus to the multitude, and to his disciples,

23:2 Saying, The scribes and the Pharisees sit in Moses' seat:

23:3 All therefore whatsoever they bid you observe, [that]

observe and do; but do not ye after their works: for they say,

and do not.

23:4 For they bind heavy burdens and grievous to be borne, and

lay [them] on men's shoulders; but they [themselves] will not

move them with one of their fingers.

23:5 But all their works they do for to be seen of men: they

make broad their phylacteries, and enlarge the borders of their


23:6 And love the uppermost rooms at feasts, and the chief seats

in the synagogues,

23:7 And greetings in the markets, and to be called of men,

Rabbi, Rabbi.

23:8 But be not ye called Rabbi: for one is your Master, [even]

Christ; and all ye are brethren.

23:9 And call no [man] your father upon the earth: for one is

your Father, which is in heaven.

23:10 Neither be ye called masters: for one is your Master,

[even] Christ.

23:11 But he that is greatest among you shall be your servant.

23:12 And whosoever shall exalt himself shall be abased; and he

that shall humble himself shall be exalted.

23:13 But woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for

ye shut up the kingdom of heaven against men: for ye neither go

in [yourselves], neither suffer ye them that are entering to go


23:14 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye

devour widows' houses, and for a pretence make long prayer:

therefore ye shall receive the greater damnation.

23:15 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye

compass sea and land to make one proselyte, and when he is

made, ye make him twofold more the child of hell than


23:16 Woe unto you, [ye] blind guides, which say, Whosoever

shall swear by the temple, it is nothing; but whosoever shall

swear by the gold of the temple, he is a debtor!

23:17 [Ye] fools and blind: for whether is greater, the gold, or

the temple that sanctifieth the gold?

23:18 And, Whosoever shall swear by the altar, it is nothing;

but whosoever sweareth by the gift that is upon it, he is


23:19 [Ye] fools and blind: for whether [is] greater, the gift,

or the altar that sanctifieth the gift?

23:20 Whoso therefore shall swear by the altar, sweareth by it,

and by all things thereon.

23:21 And whoso shall swear by the temple, sweareth by it, and

by him that dwelleth therein.

23:22 And he that shall swear by heaven, sweareth by the throne

of God, and by him that sitteth thereon.

23:23 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye

pay tithe of mint and anise and cummin, and have omitted the

weightier [matters] of the law, judgment, mercy, and faith:

these ought ye to have done, and not to leave the other undone.

23:24 [Ye] blind guides, which strain at a gnat, and swallow a


23:25 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye

make clean the outside of the cup and of the platter, but

within they are full of extortion and excess.

23:26 [Thou] blind Pharisee, cleanse first that [which is]

within the cup and platter, that the outside of them may be

clean also.

23:27 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye

are like unto whited sepulchres, which indeed appear beautiful

outward, but are within full of dead [men's] bones, and of all


23:28 Even so ye also outwardly appear righteous unto men, but

within ye are full of hypocrisy and iniquity.

23:29 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! because

ye build the tombs of the prophets, and garnish the sepulchres

of the righteous,

23:30 And say, If we had been in the days of our fathers, we

would not have been partakers with them in the blood of the


23:31 Wherefore ye be witnesses unto yourselves, that ye are the

children of them which killed the prophets.

23:32 Fill ye up then the measure of your fathers.

23:33 [Ye] serpents, [ye] generation of vipers, how can ye

escape the damnation of hell?

23:34 Wherefore, behold, I send unto you prophets, and wise men,

and scribes: and [some] of them ye shall kill and crucify; and

[some] of them shall ye scourge in your synagogues, and

persecute [them] from city to city:

23:35 That upon you may come all the righteous blood shed upon

the earth, from the blood of righteous Abel unto the blood of

Zacharias son of Barachias, whom ye slew between the temple and

the altar.

23:36 Verily I say unto you, All these things shall come upon

this generation.

23:37 O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, [thou] that killest the prophets,

and stonest them which are sent unto thee, how often would I

have gathered thy children together, even as a hen gathereth

her chickens under [her] wings, and ye would not!

23:38 Behold, your house is left unto you desolate.

23:39 For I say unto you, Ye shall not see me henceforth, till

ye shall say, Blessed [is] he that cometh in the name of the


24:1 And Jesus went out, and departed from the temple: and his

disciples came to [him] for to shew him the buildings of the


24:2 And Jesus said unto them, See ye not all these things?

verily I say unto you, There shall not be left here one stone

upon another, that shall not be thrown down.

24:3 And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came

unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things

be? and what [shall be] the sign of thy coming, and of the end

of the world?

24:4 And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no

man deceive you.

24:5 For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and

shall deceive many.

24:6 And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye

be not troubled: for all [these things] must come to pass, but

the end is not yet.

24:7 For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against

kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and

earthquakes, in divers places.

24:8 All these [are] the beginning of sorrows.

24:9 Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall

kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name's


24:10 And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one

another, and shall hate one another.

24:11 And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive


24:12 And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall

wax cold.

24:13 But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be


24:14 And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all

the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the

end come.

24:15 When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation,

spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place,

(whoso readeth, let him understand:)

24:16 Then let them which be in Judaea flee into the mountains:

24:17 Let him which is on the housetop not come down to take any

thing out of his house:

24:18 Neither let him which is in the field return back to take

his clothes.

24:19 And woe unto them that are with child, and to them that

give suck in those days!

24:20 But pray ye that your flight be not in the winter, neither

on the sabbath day:

24:21 For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since

the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.

24:22 And except those days should be shortened, there should no

flesh be saved: but for the elect's sake those days shall be


24:23 Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here [is] Christ,

or there; believe [it] not.

24:24 For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets,

and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if [it

were] possible, they shall deceive the very elect.

24:25 Behold, I have told you before.

24:26 Wherefore if they shall say unto you, Behold, he is in the

desert; go not forth: behold, [he is] in the secret chambers;

believe [it] not.

24:27 For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth

even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man


24:28 For wheresoever the carcase is, there will the eagles be

gathered together.

24:29 Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the

sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the

stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens

shall be shaken:

24:30 And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in

heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and

they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven

with power and great glory.

24:31 And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a

trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four

winds, from one end of heaven to the other.

24:32 Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is

yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer [is]


24:33 So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know

that it is near, [even] at the doors.

24:34 Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass,

till all these things be fulfilled.

24:35 Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not

pass away.

24:36 But of that day and hour knoweth no [man], no, not the

angels of heaven, but my Father only.

24:37 But as the days of Noe [were], so shall also the coming of

the Son of man be.

24:38 For as in the days that were before the flood they were

eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the

day that Noe entered into the ark,

24:39 And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away;

so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.

24:40 Then shall two be in the field; the one shall be taken,

and the other left.

24:41 Two [women shall be] grinding at the mill; the one shall

be taken, and the other left.

24:42 Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth


24:43 But know this, that if the goodman of the house had known

in what watch the thief would come, he would have watched, and

would not have suffered his house to be broken up.

24:44 Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye

think not the Son of man cometh.

24:45 Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom his lord

hath made ruler over his household, to give them meat in due


24:46 Blessed [is] that servant, whom his lord when he cometh

shall find so doing.

24:47 Verily I say unto you, That he shall make him ruler over

all his goods.

24:48 But and if that evil servant shall say in his heart, My

lord delayeth his coming;

24:49 And shall begin to smite [his] fellowservants, and to eat

and drink with the drunken;

24:50 The lord of that servant shall come in a day when he

looketh not for [him], and in an hour that he is not aware of,

24:51 And shall cut him asunder, and appoint [him] his portion

with the hypocrites: there shall be weeping and gnashing of


25:1 Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten

virgins, which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the


25:2 And five of them were wise, and five [were] foolish.

25:3 They that [were] foolish took their lamps, and took no oil

with them:

25:4 But the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps.

25:5 While the bridegroom tarried, they all slumbered and slept.

25:6 And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the

bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him.

25:7 Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps.

25:8 And the foolish said unto the wise, Give us of your oil;

for our lamps are gone out.

25:9 But the wise answered, saying, [Not so]; lest there be not

enough for us and you: but go ye rather to them that sell, and

buy for yourselves.

25:10 And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came; and they

that were ready went in with him to the marriage: and the door

was shut.

25:11 Afterward came also the other virgins, saying, Lord, Lord,

open to us.

25:12 But he answered and said, Verily I say unto you, I know

you not.

25:13 Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour

wherein the Son of man cometh.

25:14 For [the kingdom of heaven is] as a man travelling into a

far country, [who] called his own servants, and delivered unto

them his goods.

25:15 And unto one he gave five talents, to another two, and to

another one; to every man according to his several ability; and

straightway took his journey.

25:16 Then he that had received the five talents went and traded

with the same, and made [them] other five talents.

25:17 And likewise he that [had received] two, he also gained

other two.

25:18 But he that had received one went and digged in the earth,

and hid his lord's money.

25:19 After a long time the lord of those servants cometh, and

reckoneth with them.

25:20 And so he that had received five talents came and brought

other five talents, saying, Lord, thou deliveredst unto me five

talents: behold, I have gained beside them five talents more.

25:21 His lord said unto him, Well done, [thou] good and

faithful servant: thou hast been faithful over a few things, I

will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy

of thy lord.

25:22 He also that had received two talents came and said, Lord,

thou deliveredst unto me two talents: behold, I have gained two

other talents beside them.

25:23 His lord said unto him, Well done, good and faithful

servant; thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make

thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy


25:24 Then he which had received the one talent came and said,

Lord, I knew thee that thou art an hard man, reaping where thou

hast not sown, and gathering where thou hast not strawed:

25:25 And I was afraid, and went and hid thy talent in the

earth: lo, [there] thou hast [that is] thine.

25:26 His lord answered and said unto him, [Thou] wicked and

slothful servant, thou knewest that I reap where I sowed not,

and gather where I have not strawed:

25:27 Thou oughtest therefore to have put my money to the

exchangers, and [then] at my coming I should have received mine

own with usury.

25:28 Take therefore the talent from him, and give [it] unto him

which hath ten talents.

25:29 For unto every one that hath shall be given, and he shall

have abundance: but from him that hath not shall be taken away

even that which he hath.

25:30 And cast ye the unprofitable servant into outer darkness:

there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

25:31 When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the

holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his


25:32 And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall

separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth [his]

sheep from the goats:

25:33 And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the

goats on the left.

25:34 Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come,

ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you

from the foundation of the world:

25:35 For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty,

and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in:

25:36 Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I

was in prison, and ye came unto me.

25:37 Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when

saw we thee an hungred, and fed [thee]? or thirsty, and gave

[thee] drink?

25:38 When saw we thee a stranger, and took [thee] in? or naked,

and clothed [thee]?

25:39 Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto


25:40 And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say

unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done [it] unto one of the least

of these my brethren, ye have done [it] unto me.

25:41 Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart

from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the

devil and his angels:

25:42 For I was an hungred, and ye gave me no meat: I was

thirsty, and ye gave me no drink:

25:43 I was a stranger, and ye took me not in: naked, and ye

clothed me not: sick, and in prison, and ye visited me not.

25:44 Then shall they also answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we

thee an hungred, or athirst, or a stranger, or naked, or sick,

or in prison, and did not minister unto thee?

25:45 Then shall he answer them, saying, Verily I say unto you,

Inasmuch as ye did [it] not to one of the least of these, ye

did [it] not to me.

25:46 And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but

the righteous into life eternal.

26:1 And it came to pass, when Jesus had finished all these

sayings, he said unto his disciples,

26:2 Ye know that after two days is [the feast of] the passover,

and the Son of man is betrayed to be crucified.

26:3 Then assembled together the chief priests, and the scribes,

and the elders of the people, unto the palace of the high

priest, who was called Caiaphas,

26:4 And consulted that they might take Jesus by subtilty, and

kill [him].

26:5 But they said, Not on the feast [day], lest there be an

uproar among the people.

26:6 Now when Jesus was in Bethany, in the house of Simon the


26:7 There came unto him a woman having an alabaster box of very

precious ointment, and poured it on his head, as he sat [at


26:8 But when his disciples saw [it], they had indignation,

saying, To what purpose [is] this waste?

26:9 For this ointment might have been sold for much, and given

to the poor.

26:10 When Jesus understood [it], he said unto them, Why trouble

ye the woman? for she hath wrought a good work upon me.

26:11 For ye have the poor always with you; but me ye have not


26:12 For in that she hath poured this ointment on my body, she

did [it] for my burial.

26:13 Verily I say unto you, Wheresoever this gospel shall be

preached in the whole world, [there] shall also this, that this

woman hath done, be told for a memorial of her.

26:14 Then one of the twelve, called Judas Iscariot, went unto

the chief priests,

26:15 And said [unto them], What will ye give me, and I will

deliver him unto you? And they covenanted with him for thirty

pieces of silver.

26:16 And from that time he sought opportunity to betray him.

26:17 Now the first [day] of the [feast of] unleavened bread the

disciples came to Jesus, saying unto him, Where wilt thou that

we prepare for thee to eat the passover?

26:18 And he said, Go into the city to such a man, and say unto

him, The Master saith, My time is at hand; I will keep the

passover at thy house with my disciples.

26:19 And the disciples did as Jesus had appointed them; and

they made ready the passover.

26:20 Now when the even was come, he sat down with the twelve.

26:21 And as they did eat, he said, Verily I say unto you, that

one of you shall betray me.

26:22 And they were exceeding sorrowful, and began every one of

them to say unto him, Lord, is it I?

26:23 And he answered and said, He that dippeth [his] hand with

me in the dish, the same shall betray me.

26:24 The Son of man goeth as it is written of him: but woe unto

that man by whom the Son of man is betrayed! it had been good

for that man if he had not been born.

26:25 Then Judas, which betrayed him, answered and said, Master,

is it I? He said unto him, Thou hast said.

26:26 And as they were eating, Jesus took bread, and blessed

[it], and brake [it], and gave [it] to the disciples, and said,

Take, eat; this is my body.

26:27 And he took the cup, and gave thanks, and gave [it] to

them, saying, Drink ye all of it;

26:28 For this is my blood of the new testament, which is shed

for many for the remission of sins.

26:29 But I say unto you, I will not drink henceforth of this

fruit of the vine, until that day when I drink it new with you

in my Father's kingdom.

26:30 And when they had sung an hymn, they went out into the

mount of Olives.

26:31 Then saith Jesus unto them, All ye shall be offended

because of me this night: for it is written, I will smite the

shepherd, and the sheep of the flock shall be scattered abroad.

26:32 But after I am risen again, I will go before you into


26:33 Peter answered and said unto him, Though all [men] shall

be offended because of thee, [yet] will I never be offended.

26:34 Jesus said unto him, Verily I say unto thee, That this

night, before the cock crow, thou shalt deny me thrice.

26:35 Peter said unto him, Though I should die with thee, yet

will I not deny thee. Likewise also said all the disciples.

26:36 Then cometh Jesus with them unto a place called

Gethsemane, and saith unto the disciples, Sit ye here, while I

go and pray yonder.

26:37 And he took with him Peter and the two sons of Zebedee,

and began to be sorrowful and very heavy.

26:38 Then saith he unto them, My soul is exceeding sorrowful,

even unto death: tarry ye here, and watch with me.

26:39 And he went a little further, and fell on his face, and

prayed, saying, O my Father, if it be possible, let this cup

pass from me: nevertheless not as I will, but as thou [wilt].

26:40 And he cometh unto the disciples, and findeth them asleep,

and saith unto Peter, What, could ye not watch with me one


26:41 Watch and pray, that ye enter not into temptation: the

spirit indeed [is] willing, but the flesh [is] weak.

26:42 He went away again the second time, and prayed, saying, O

my Father, if this cup may not pass away from me, except I

drink it, thy will be done.

26:43 And he came and found them asleep again: for their eyes

were heavy.

26:44 And he left them, and went away again, and prayed the

third time, saying the same words.

26:45 Then cometh he to his disciples, and saith unto them,

Sleep on now, and take [your] rest: behold, the hour is at

hand, and the Son of man is betrayed into the hands of sinners.

26:46 Rise, let us be going: behold, he is at hand that doth

betray me.

26:47 And while he yet spake, lo, Judas, one of the twelve,

came, and with him a great multitude with swords and staves,

from the chief priests and elders of the people.

26:48 Now he that betrayed him gave them a sign, saying,

Whomsoever I shall kiss, that same is he: hold him fast.

26:49 And forthwith he came to Jesus, and said, Hail, master;

and kissed him.

26:50 And Jesus said unto him, Friend, wherefore art thou come?

Then came they, and laid hands on Jesus, and took him.

26:51 And, behold, one of them which were with Jesus stretched

out [his] hand, and drew his sword, and struck a servant of the

high priest's, and smote off his ear.

26:52 Then said Jesus unto him, Put up again thy sword into his

place: for all they that take the sword shall perish with the


26:53 Thinkest thou that I cannot now pray to my Father, and he

shall presently give me more than twelve legions of angels?

26:54 But how then shall the scriptures be fulfilled, that thus

it must be?

26:55 In that same hour said Jesus to the multitudes, Are ye

come out as against a thief with swords and staves for to take

me? I sat daily with you teaching in the temple, and ye laid no

hold on me.

26:56 But all this was done, that the scriptures of the prophets

might be fulfilled. Then all the disciples forsook him, and


26:57 And they that had laid hold on Jesus led [him] away to

Caiaphas the high priest, where the scribes and the elders were


26:58 But Peter followed him afar off unto the high priest's

palace, and went in, and sat with the servants, to see the end.

26:59 Now the chief priests, and elders, and all the council,

sought false witness against Jesus, to put him to death;

26:60 But found none: yea, though many false witnesses came,

[yet] found they none. At the last came two false witnesses,

26:61 And said, This [fellow] said, I am able to destroy the

temple of God, and to build it in three days.

26:62 And the high priest arose, and said unto him, Answerest

thou nothing? what [is it which] these witness against thee?

26:63 But Jesus held his peace. And the high priest answered and

said unto him, I adjure thee by the living God, that thou tell

us whether thou be the Christ, the Son of God.

26:64 Jesus saith unto him, Thou hast said: nevertheless I say

unto you, Hereafter shall ye see the Son of man sitting on the

right hand of power, and coming in the clouds of heaven.

26:65 Then the high priest rent his clothes, saying, He hath

spoken blasphemy; what further need have we of witnesses?

behold, now ye have heard his blasphemy.

26:66 What think ye? They answered and said, He is guilty of


26:67 Then did they spit in his face, and buffeted him; and

others smote [him] with the palms of their hands,

26:68 Saying, Prophesy unto us, thou Christ, Who is he that

smote thee?

26:69 Now Peter sat without in the palace: and a damsel came

unto him, saying, Thou also wast with Jesus of Galilee.

26:70 But he denied before [them] all, saying, I know not what

thou sayest.

26:71 And when he was gone out into the porch, another [maid]

saw him, and said unto them that were there, This [fellow] was

also with Jesus of Nazareth.

26:72 And again he denied with an oath, I do not know the man.

26:73 And after a while came unto [him] they that stood by, and

said to Peter, Surely thou also art [one] of them; for thy

speech bewrayeth thee.

26:74 Then began he to curse and to swear, [saying], I know not

the man. And immediately the cock crew.

26:75 And Peter remembered the word of Jesus, which said unto

him, Before the cock crow, thou shalt deny me thrice. And he

went out, and wept bitterly.

27:1 When the morning was come, all the chief priests and elders

of the people took counsel against Jesus to put him to death:

27:2 And when they had bound him, they led [him] away, and

delivered him to Pontius Pilate the governor.

27:3 Then Judas, which had betrayed him, when he saw that he was

condemned, repented himself, and brought again the thirty

pieces of silver to the chief priests and elders,

27:4 Saying, I have sinned in that I have betrayed the innocent

blood. And they said, What [is that] to us? see thou [to that].

27:5 And he cast down the pieces of silver in the temple, and

departed, and went and hanged himself.

27:6 And the chief priests took the silver pieces, and said, It

is not lawful for to put them into the treasury, because it is

the price of blood.

27:7 And they took counsel, and bought with them the potter's

field, to bury strangers in.

27:8 Wherefore that field was called, The field of blood, unto

this day.

27:9 Then was fulfilled that which was spoken by Jeremy the

prophet, saying, And they took the thirty pieces of silver, the

price of him that was valued, whom they of the children of

Israel did value;

27:10 And gave them for the potter's field, as the Lord

appointed me.

27:11 And Jesus stood before the governor: and the governor

asked him, saying, Art thou the King of the Jews? And Jesus

said unto him, Thou sayest.

27:12 And when he was accused of the chief priests and elders,

he answered nothing.

27:13 Then said Pilate unto him, Hearest thou not how many

things they witness against thee?

27:14 And he answered him to never a word; insomuch that the

governor marvelled greatly.

27:15 Now at [that] feast the governor was wont to release unto

the people a prisoner, whom they would.

27:16 And they had then a notable prisoner, called Barabbas.

27:17 Therefore when they were gathered together, Pilate said

unto them, Whom will ye that I release unto you? Barabbas, or

Jesus which is called Christ?

27:18 For he knew that for envy they had delivered him.

27:19 When he was set down on the judgment seat, his wife sent

unto him, saying, Have thou nothing to do with that just man:

for I have suffered many things this day in a dream because of


27:20 But the chief priests and elders persuaded the multitude

that they should ask Barabbas, and destroy Jesus.

27:21 The governor answered and said unto them, Whether of the

twain will ye that I release unto you? They said, Barabbas.

27:22 Pilate saith unto them, What shall I do then with Jesus

which is called Christ? [They] all say unto him, Let him be


27:23 And the governor said, Why, what evil hath he done? But

they cried out the more, saying, Let him be crucified.

27:24 When Pilate saw that he could prevail nothing, but [that]

rather a tumult was made, he took water, and washed [his] hands

before the multitude, saying, I am innocent of the blood of

this just person: see ye [to it].

27:25 Then answered all the people, and said, His blood [be] on

us, and on our children.

27:26 Then released he Barabbas unto them: and when he had

scourged Jesus, he delivered [him] to be crucified.

27:27 Then the soldiers of the governor took Jesus into the

common hall, and gathered unto him the whole band [of


27:28 And they stripped him, and put on him a scarlet robe.

27:29 And when they had platted a crown of thorns, they put [it]

upon his head, and a reed in his right hand: and they bowed the

knee before him, and mocked him, saying, Hail, King of the


27:30 And they spit upon him, and took the reed, and smote him

on the head.

27:31 And after that they had mocked him, they took the robe off

from him, and put his own raiment on him, and led him away to

crucify [him].

27:32 And as they came out, they found a man of Cyrene, Simon by

name: him they compelled to bear his cross.

27:33 And when they were come unto a place called Golgotha, that

is to say, a place of a skull,

27:34 They gave him vinegar to drink mingled with gall: and when

he had tasted [thereof], he would not drink.

27:35 And they crucified him, and parted his garments, casting

lots: that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the

prophet, They parted my garments among them, and upon my

vesture did they cast lots.

27:36 And sitting down they watched him there;

27:37 And set up over his head his accusation written, THIS IS


27:38 Then were there two thieves crucified with him, one on the

right hand, and another on the left.

27:39 And they that passed by reviled him, wagging their heads,

27:40 And saying, Thou that destroyest the temple, and buildest

[it] in three days, save thyself. If thou be the Son of God,

come down from the cross.

27:41 Likewise also the chief priests mocking [him], with the

scribes and elders, said,

27:42 He saved others; himself he cannot save. If he be the King

of Israel, let him now come down from the cross, and we will

believe him.

27:43 He trusted in God; let him deliver him now, if he will

have him: for he said, I am the Son of God.

27:44 The thieves also, which were crucified with him, cast the

same in his teeth.

27:45 Now from the sixth hour there was darkness over all the

land unto the ninth hour.

27:46 And about the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice,

saying, Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani? that is to say, My God, my

God, why hast thou forsaken me?

27:47 Some of them that stood there, when they heard [that],

said, This [man] calleth for Elias.

27:48 And straightway one of them ran, and took a spunge, and

filled [it] with vinegar, and put [it] on a reed, and gave him

to drink.

27:49 The rest said, Let be, let us see whether Elias will come

to save him.

27:50 Jesus, when he had cried again with a loud voice, yielded

up the ghost.

27:51 And, behold, the veil of the temple was rent in twain from

the top to the bottom; and the earth did quake, and the rocks


27:52 And the graves were opened; and many bodies of the saints

which slept arose,

27:53 And came out of the graves after his resurrection, and

went into the holy city, and appeared unto many.

27:54 Now when the centurion, and they that were with him,

watching Jesus, saw the earthquake, and those things that were

done, they feared greatly, saying, Truly this was the Son of


27:55 And many women were there beholding afar off, which

followed Jesus from Galilee, ministering unto him:

27:56 Among which was Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of

James and Joses, and the mother of Zebedee's children.

27:57 When the even was come, there came a rich man of

Arimathaea, named Joseph, who also himself was Jesus' disciple:

27:58 He went to Pilate, and begged the body of Jesus. Then

Pilate commanded the body to be delivered.

27:59 And when Joseph had taken the body, he wrapped it in a

clean linen cloth,

27:60 And laid it in his own new tomb, which he had hewn out in

the rock: and he rolled a great stone to the door of the

sepulchre, and departed.

27:61 And there was Mary Magdalene, and the other Mary, sitting

over against the sepulchre.

27:62 Now the next day, that followed the day of the

preparation, the chief priests and Pharisees came together unto


27:63 Saying, Sir, we remember that that deceiver said, while he

was yet alive, After three days I will rise again.

27:64 Command therefore that the sepulchre be made sure until

the third day, lest his disciples come by night, and steal him

away, and say unto the people, He is risen from the dead: so

the last error shall be worse than the first.

27:65 Pilate said unto them, Ye have a watch: go your way, make

[it] as sure as ye can.

27:66 So they went, and made the sepulchre sure, sealing the

stone, and setting a watch.

28:1 In the end of the sabbath, as it began to dawn toward the

first [day] of the week, came Mary Magdalene and the other Mary

to see the sepulchre.

28:2 And, behold, there was a great earthquake: for the angel of

the Lord descended from heaven, and came and rolled back the

stone from the door, and sat upon it.

28:3 His countenance was like lightning, and his raiment white

as snow:

28:4 And for fear of him the keepers did shake, and became as

dead [men].

28:5 And the angel answered and said unto the women, Fear not

ye: for I know that ye seek Jesus, which was crucified.

28:6 He is not here: for he is risen, as he said. Come, see the

place where the Lord lay.

28:7 And go quickly, and tell his disciples that he is risen

from the dead; and, behold, he goeth before you into Galilee;

there shall ye see him: lo, I have told you.

28:8 And they departed quickly from the sepulchre with fear and

great joy; and did run to bring his disciples word.

28:9 And as they went to tell his disciples, behold, Jesus met

them, saying, All hail. And they came and held him by the feet,

and worshipped him.

28:10 Then said Jesus unto them, Be not afraid: go tell my

brethren that they go into Galilee, and there shall they see


28:11 Now when they were going, behold, some of the watch came

into the city, and shewed unto the chief priests all the things

that were done.

28:12 And when they were assembled with the elders, and had

taken counsel, they gave large money unto the soldiers,

28:13 Saying, Say ye, His disciples came by night, and stole him

[away] while we slept.

28:14 And if this come to the governor's ears, we will persuade

him, and secure you.

28:15 So they took the money, and did as they were taught: and

this saying is commonly reported among the Jews until this day.

28:16 Then the eleven disciples went away into Galilee, into a

mountain where Jesus had appointed them.

28:17 And when they saw him, they worshipped him: but some


28:18 And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is

given unto me in heaven and in earth.

28:19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in

the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:

28:20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have

commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, [even] unto the

end of the world. Amen.
