||The book of the generation of Jesus Christ, the son of
David, the son of Abraham.
||Abraham begat Isaac; and Isaac begat Jacob; and Jacob
begat Judas and his brethren;
||And Judas begat Phares and Zara of Thamar; and Phares
begat Esrom; and Esrom begat Aram;
||And Aram begat Aminadab; and Aminadab begat Naasson; and
Naasson begat Salmon;
||And Salmon begat Booz of Rachab; and Booz begat Obed of
Ruth; and Obed begat Jesse;
||And Jesse begat David the king; and David the king begat
Solomon of her that had been the wife of Urias;
||And Solomon begat Roboam; and Roboam begat Abia; and
Abia begat Asa;
||And Asa begat Josaphat; and Josaphat begat Joram; and
Joram begat Ozias;
||And Ozias begat Joatham; and Joatham begat Achaz; and
Achaz begat Ezekias;
||And Ezekias begat Manasses; and Manasses begat Amon; and
Amon begat Josias;
||And Josias begat Jechonias and his brethren, about the
time they were carried away to Babylon:
||And after they were brought to Babylon, Jechonias begat
Salathiel; and Salathiel begat Zorobabel;
||And Zorobabel begat Abiud; and Abiud begat Eliakim; and
Eliakim begat Azor;
||And Azor begat Sadoc; and Sadoc begat Achim; and Achim
||And Eliud begat Eleazar; and Eleazar begat Matthan; and
Matthan begat Jacob;
||And Jacob begat Joseph the husband of Mary, of whom was
born Jesus, who is called Christ.
||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.
||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.
||Then Joseph her husband, being a just man, and not
willing to make her a publick example, was minded to put her
||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.
||And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his
name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins.
||Now all this was done, that it might be fulfilled which
was spoken of the Lord by the prophet, saying,
||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.
||Then Joseph being raised from sleep did as the angel of
the Lord had bidden him, and took unto him his wife:
||And knew her not till she had brought forth her
firstborn son: and he called his name JESUS.
||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 Jerusalem,
||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
||When Herod the king had heard these things, he was
troubled, and all Jerusalem with him.
||And when he had gathered all the chief priests and
scribes of the people together, he demanded of them where
Christ should be born.
||And they said unto him, In Bethlehem of Judaea: for thus
it is written by the prophet,
||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.
||Then Herod, when he had privily called the wise men,
enquired of them diligently what time the star appeared.
||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.
||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.
||When they saw the star, they rejoiced with exceeding
||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
||And being warned of God in a dream that they should not
return to Herod, they departed into their own country
||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.
||When he arose, he took the young child and his mother by
night, and departed into Egypt:
||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.
||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.
||Then was fulfilled that which was spoken by Jeremy the
||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.
||But when Herod was dead, behold, an angel of the Lord
appeareth in a dream to Joseph in Egypt,
||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.
||And he arose, and took the young child and his mother,
and came into the land of Israel.
||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:
||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.
||In those days came John the Baptist, preaching in the
wilderness of Judaea,
||And saying, Repent ye: for the kingdom of heaven is at
||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.
||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.
||Then went out to him Jerusalem, and all Judaea, and all
the region round about Jordan,
||And were baptized of him in Jordan, confessing their
||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?
||Bring forth therefore fruits meet for repentance:
||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.
||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.
||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:
||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.
||Then cometh Jesus from Galilee to Jordan unto John, to
be baptized of him.
||But John forbad him, saying, I have need to be baptized
of thee, and comest thou to me?
||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.
||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 him:
||And lo a voice from heaven, saying, This is my beloved
Son, in whom I am well pleased.
||Then was Jesus led up of the spirit into the wilderness
to be tempted of the devil.
||And when he had fasted forty days and forty nights, he
was afterward an hungred.
||And when the tempter came to him, he said, If thou be
the Son of God, command that these stones be made bread.
||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.
||Then the devil taketh him up into the holy city, and
setteth him on a pinnacle of the temple,
||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
||Jesus said unto him, It is written again, Thou shalt not
tempt the Lord thy God.
||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;
||And saith unto him, All these things will I give thee,
if thou wilt fall down and worship me.
||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.
||Then the devil leaveth him, and, behold, angels came and
ministered unto him.
||Now when Jesus had heard that John was cast into prison,
he departed into Galilee;
||And leaving Nazareth, he came and dwelt in Capernaum,
which is upon the sea coast, in the borders of Zabulon and
||That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Esaias
the prophet, saying,
||The land of Zabulon, and the land of Nephthalim, by the
way of the sea, beyond Jordan, Galilee of the Gentiles;
||The people which sat in darkness saw great light; and to
them which sat in the region and shadow of death light is
||From that time Jesus began to preach, and to say,
Repent: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.
||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.
||And he saith unto them, Follow me, and I will make you
fishers of men.
||And they straightway left their nets, and followed him.
||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
||And they immediately left the ship and their father, and
||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.
||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.
||And there followed him great multitudes of people from
Galilee, and from Decapolis, and from Jerusalem, and from
Judaea, and from beyond Jordan.
||And seeing the multitudes, he went up into a mountain:
and when he was set, his disciples came unto him:
||And he opened his mouth, and taught them, saying,
||Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the
kingdom of heaven.
||Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be
||Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth.
||Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after
righteousness: for they shall be filled.
||Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy.
||Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God.
||Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called
the children of God.
||Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness'
sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
||Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute
you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely,
for my sake.
||Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward
in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were
||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.
||Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an
hill cannot be hid.
||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.
||Let your light so shine before men, that they may see
your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.
||Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the
prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil.
||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.
||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
||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.
||Ye have heard that it was said of them of old time, Thou
shalt not kill; and whosoever shall kill shall be in danger
of the judgment:
||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.
||Therefore if thou bring thy gift to the altar, and there
rememberest that thy brother hath ought against thee;
||Leave there thy gift before the altar, and go thy way;
first be reconciled to thy brother, and then come and offer
||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.
||Verily I say unto thee, Thou shalt by no means come out
thence, till thou hast paid the uttermost farthing.
||Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time, Thou
shalt not commit adultery:
||But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to
lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in
||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.
||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.
||It hath been said, Whosoever shall put away his wife,
let him give her a writing of divorcement:
||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.
||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:
||But I say unto you, Swear not at all; neither by heaven;
for it is God's throne:
||Nor by the earth; for it is his footstool: neither by
Jerusalem; for it is the city of the great King.
||Neither shalt thou swear by thy head, because thou canst
not make one hair white or black.
||But let your communication be, Yea, yea; Nay, nay: for
whatsoever is more than these cometh of evil.
||Ye have heard that it hath been said, An eye for an eye,
and a tooth for a tooth:
||But I say unto you, That ye resist not evil: but
whosoever shall smite thee on thy right cheek, turn to him
the other also.
||And if any man will sue thee at the law, and take away
thy coat, let him have thy cloak also.
||And whosoever shall compel thee to go a mile, go with
||Give to him that asketh thee, and from him that would
borrow of thee turn not thou away.
||Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love
thy neighbour, and hate thine enemy.
||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;
||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.
||For if ye love them which love you, what reward have ye?
do not even the publicans the same?
||And if ye salute your brethren only, what do ye more
than others? do not even the publicans so?
||Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in
heaven is perfect.
||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 heaven.
||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.
||But when thou doest alms, let not thy left hand know
what thy right hand doeth:
||That thine alms may be in secret: and thy Father which
seeth in secret himself shall reward thee openly.
||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
||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
||But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the
heathen do: for they think that they shall be heard for
their much speaking.
||Be not ye therefore like unto them: for your Father
knoweth what things ye have need of, before ye ask him.
||After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which
art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.
||Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done in earth, as it is in
||Give us this day our daily bread.
||And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.
||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.
||For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly
Father will also forgive you:
||But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will
your Father forgive your trespasses.
||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 reward.
||But thou, when thou fastest, anoint thine head, and wash
||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.
||Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where
moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through
||But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where
neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not
break through nor steal:
||For where your treasure is, there will your heart be
||The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye
be single, thy whole body shall be full of light.
||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!
||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.
||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?
||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?
||Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto
||And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies
of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they
||And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his
glory was not arrayed like one of these.
||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?
||Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat?
or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be
||(For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for
your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these
||But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his
righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.
||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.
||Judge not, that ye be not judged.
||For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and
with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you
||And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother's
eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye?
||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
||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.
||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.
||Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find;
knock, and it shall be opened unto you:
||For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh
findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.
||Or what man is there of you, whom if his son ask bread,
will he give him a stone?
||Or if he ask a fish, will he give him a serpent?
||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?
||Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should
do to you, do ye even so to them: for this is the law and
||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:
||Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which
leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.
||Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's
clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.
||Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes
of thorns, or figs of thistles?
||Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a
corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit.
||A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a
corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.
||Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn
down, and cast into the fire.
||Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.
||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.
||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?
||And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you:
depart from me, ye that work iniquity.
||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:
||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.
||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:
||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.
||And it came to pass, when Jesus had ended these sayings,
the people were astonished at his doctrine:
||For he taught them as one having authority, and not as
||When he was come down from the mountain, great
multitudes followed him.
||And, behold, there came a leper and worshipped him,
saying, Lord, if thou wilt, thou canst make me clean.
||And Jesus put forth his hand, and touched him, saying, I
will; be thou clean. And immediately his leprosy was
||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.
||And when Jesus was entered into Capernaum, there came
unto him a centurion, beseeching him,
||And saying, Lord, my servant lieth at home sick of the
palsy, grievously tormented.
||And Jesus saith unto him, I will come and heal him.
||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.
||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
||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.
||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.
||But the children of the kingdom shall be cast out into
outer darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of
||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.
||And when Jesus was come into Peter's house, he saw his
wife's mother laid, and sick of a fever.
||And he touched her hand, and the fever left her: and she
arose, and ministered unto them.
||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:
||That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Esaias
the prophet, saying, Himself took our infirmities, and bare
||Now when Jesus saw great multitudes about him, he gave
commandment to depart unto the other side.
||And a certain scribe came, and said unto him, Master, I
will follow thee whithersoever thou goest.
||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.
||And another of his disciples said unto him, Lord, suffer
me first to go and bury my father.
||But Jesus said unto him, Follow me; and let the dead
bury their dead.
||And when he was entered into a ship, his disciples
||And, behold, there arose a great tempest in the sea,
insomuch that the ship was covered with the waves: but he
||And his disciples came to him, and awoke him, saying,
Lord, save us: we perish.
||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.
||But the men marvelled, saying, What manner of man is
this, that even the winds and the sea obey him!
||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.
||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?
||And there was a good way off from them an herd of many
||So the devils besought him, saying, If thou cast us out,
suffer us to go away into the herd of swine.
||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.
||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.
||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.
||And he entered into a ship, and passed over, and came
into his own city.
||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.
||And, behold, certain of the scribes said within
themselves, This man blasphemeth.
||And Jesus knowing their thoughts said, Wherefore think
ye evil in your hearts?
||For whether is easier, to say, Thy sins be forgiven
thee; or to say, Arise, and walk?
||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.
||And he arose, and departed to his house.
||But when the multitudes saw it, they marvelled, and
glorified God, which had given such power unto men.
||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.
||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.
||And when the Pharisees saw it, they said unto his
disciples, Why eateth your Master with publicans and
||But when Jesus heard that, he said unto them, They that
be whole need not a physician, but they that are sick.
||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.
||Then came to him the disciples of John, saying, Why do
we and the Pharisees fast oft, but thy disciples fast not?
||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.
||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.
||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
||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 live.
||And Jesus arose, and followed him, and so did his
||And, behold, a woman, which was diseased with an issue
of blood twelve years, came behind him, and touched the hem
of his garment:
||For she said within herself, If I may but touch his
garment, I shall be whole.
||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.
||And when Jesus came into the ruler's house, and saw the
minstrels and the people making a noise,
||He said unto them, Give place: for the maid is not dead,
but sleepeth. And they laughed him to scorn.
||But when the people were put forth, he went in, and took
her by the hand, and the maid arose.
||And the fame hereof went abroad into all that land.
||And when Jesus departed thence, two blind men followed
him, crying, and saying, Thou son of David, have mercy on
||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.
||Then touched he their eyes, saying, According to your
faith be it unto you.
||And their eyes were opened; and Jesus straitly charged
them, saying, See that no man know it.
||But they, when they were departed, spread abroad his
fame in all that country.
||As they went out, behold, they brought to him a dumb man
possessed with a devil.
||And when the devil was cast out, the dumb spake: and the
multitudes marvelled, saying, It was never so seen in
||But the Pharisees said, He casteth out devils through
the prince of the devils.
||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.
||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.
||Then saith he unto his disciples, The harvest truly is
plenteous, but the labourers are few;
||Pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he will
send forth labourers into his harvest.
||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
||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;
||Philip, and Bartholomew; Thomas, and Matthew the
publican; James the son of Alphaeus, and Lebbaeus, whose
surname was Thaddaeus;
||Simon the Canaanite, and Judas Iscariot, who also
||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:
||But go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel.
||And as ye go, preach, saying, The kingdom of heaven is
||Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast
out devils: freely ye have received, freely give.
||Provide neither gold, nor silver, nor brass in your
||Nor scrip for your journey, neither two coats, neither
shoes, nor yet staves: for the workman is worthy of his
||And into whatsoever city or town ye shall enter, enquire
who in it is worthy; and there abide till ye go thence.
||And when ye come into an house, salute it.
||And if the house be worthy, let your peace come upon it:
but if it be not worthy, let your peace return to you.
||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.
||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.
||Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of
wolves: be ye therefore wise as serpents, and harmless as
||But beware of men: for they will deliver you up to the
councils, and they will scourge you in their synagogues;
||And ye shall be brought before governors and kings for
my sake, for a testimony against them and the Gentiles.
||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.
||For it is not ye that speak, but the Spirit of your
Father which speaketh in you.
||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.
||And ye shall be hated of all men for my name's sake: but
he that endureth to the end shall be saved.
||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.
||The disciple is not above his master, nor the servant
above his lord.
||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?
||Fear them not therefore: for there is nothing covered,
that shall not be revealed; and hid, that shall not be
||What I tell you in darkness, that speak ye in light: and
what ye hear in the ear, that preach ye upon the housetops.
||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.
||Are not two sparrows sold for a farthing? and one of
them shall not fall on the ground without your Father.
||But the very hairs of your head are all numbered.
||Fear ye not therefore, ye are of more value than many
||Whosoever therefore shall confess me before men, him
will I confess also before my Father which is in heaven.
||But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also
deny before my Father which is in heaven.
||Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came
not to send peace, but a sword.
||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.
||And a man's foes shall be they of his own household.
||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.
||And he that taketh not his cross, and followeth after
me, is not worthy of me.
||He that findeth his life shall lose it: and he that
loseth his life for my sake shall find it.
||He that receiveth you receiveth me, and he that
receiveth me receiveth him that sent me.
||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.

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
||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.
||Now when John had heard in the prison the works of
Christ, he sent two of his disciples,
||And said unto him, Art thou he that should come, or do
we look for another?
||Jesus answered and said unto them, Go and shew John
again those things which ye do hear and see:
||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.
||And blessed is he, whosoever shall not be offended in
||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?
||But what went ye out for to see? A man clothed in soft
raiment? behold, they that wear soft clothing are in kings'
||But what went ye out for to see? A prophet? yea, I say
unto you, and more than a prophet.
||For this is he, of whom it is written, Behold, I send my
messenger before thy face, which shall prepare thy way
||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.
||And from the days of John the Baptist until now the
kingdom of heaven suffereth violence, and the violent take
it by force.
||For all the prophets and the law prophesied until John.
||And if ye will receive it, this is Elias, which was for
||He that hath ears to hear, let him hear.
||But whereunto shall I liken this generation? It is like
unto children sitting in the markets, and calling unto their
||And saying, We have piped unto you, and ye have not
danced; we have mourned unto you, and ye have not lamented.
||For John came neither eating nor drinking, and they say,
He hath a devil.
||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
||Then began he to upbraid the cities wherein most of his
mighty works were done, because they repented not:
||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 ashes.
||But I say unto you, It shall be more tolerable for Tyre
and Sidon at the day of judgment, than for you.
||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.
||But I say unto you, That it shall be more tolerable for
the land of Sodom in the day of judgment, than for thee.
||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 babes.
||Even so, Father: for so it seemed good in thy sight.
||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
||Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden,
and I will give you rest.
||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.
||For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.
||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.
||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.
||But he said unto them, Have ye not read what David did,
when he was an hungred, and they that were with him;
||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?
||Or have ye not read in the law, how that on the sabbath
days the priests in the temple profane the sabbath, and are
||But I say unto you, That in this place is one greater
than the temple.
||But if ye had known what this meaneth, I will have
mercy, and not sacrifice, ye would not have condemned the
||For the Son of man is Lord even of the sabbath day.
||And when he was departed thence, he went into their
||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.
||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
||How much then is a man better than a sheep? Wherefore it
is lawful to do well on the sabbath days.
||Then saith he to the man, Stretch forth thine hand. And
he stretched it forth; and it was restored whole, like as
||Then the Pharisees went out, and held a council against
him, how they might destroy him.
||But when Jesus knew it, he withdrew himself from thence:
and great multitudes followed him, and he healed them all;
||And charged them that they should not make him known:
||That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Esaias
the prophet, saying,
||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.
||He shall not strive, nor cry; neither shall any man hear
his voice in the streets.
||A bruised reed shall he not break, and smoking flax
shall he not quench, till he send forth judgment unto
||And in his name shall the Gentiles trust.
||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.
||And all the people were amazed, and said, Is not this
the son of David?
||But when the Pharisees heard it, they said, This fellow
doth not cast out devils, but by Beelzebub the prince of the
||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:
||And if Satan cast out Satan, he is divided against
himself; how shall then his kingdom stand?
||And if I by Beelzebub cast out devils, by whom do your
children cast them out? therefore they shall be your judges.
||But if I cast out devils by the Spirit of God, then the
kingdom of God is come unto you.
||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.
||He that is not with me is against me; and he that
gathereth not with me scattereth abroad.
||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.
||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.
||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.
||O generation of vipers, how can ye, being evil, speak
good things? for out of the abundance of the heart the mouth
||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.
||But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall
speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of
||For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy
words thou shalt be condemned.
||Then certain of the scribes and of the Pharisees
answered, saying, Master, we would see a sign from thee.
||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:
||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.
||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
||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.
||When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walketh
through dry places, seeking rest, and findeth none.
||Then he saith, I will return into my house from whence I
came out; and when he is come, he findeth it empty, swept,
||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
||While he yet talked to the people, behold, his mother
and his brethren stood without, desiring to speak with him.
||Then one said unto him, Behold, thy mother and thy
brethren stand without, desiring to speak with thee.
||But he answered and said unto him that told him, Who is
my mother? and who are my brethren?
||And he stretched forth his hand toward his disciples,
and said, Behold my mother and my brethren!
||For whosoever shall do the will of my Father which is in
heaven, the same is my brother, and sister, and mother.
||The same day went Jesus out of the house, and sat by the
||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.
||And he spake many things unto them in parables, saying,
Behold, a sower went forth to sow;
||And when he sowed, some seeds fell by the way side, and
the fowls came and devoured them up:
||Some fell upon stony places, where they had not much
earth: and forthwith they sprung up, because they had no
deepness of earth:
||And when the sun was up, they were scorched; and because
they had no root, they withered away.
||And some fell among thorns; and the thorns sprung up,
and choked them:
||But other fell into good ground, and brought forth
fruit, some an hundredfold, some sixtyfold, some thirtyfold.
||Who hath ears to hear, let him hear.
||And the disciples came, and said unto him, Why speakest
thou unto them in parables?
||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.
||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.
||Therefore speak I to them in parables: because they
seeing see not; and hearing they hear not, neither do they
||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:
||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.
||But blessed are your eyes, for they see: and your ears,
for they hear.
||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.
||Hear ye therefore the parable of the sower.
||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.
||But he that received the seed into stony places, the
same is he that heareth the word, and anon with joy
||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.
||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
||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.
||Another parable put he forth unto them, saying, The
kingdom of heaven is likened unto a man which sowed good
seed in his field:
||But while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares
among the wheat, and went his way.
||But when the blade was sprung up, and brought forth
fruit, then appeared the tares also.
||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?
||He said unto them, An enemy hath done this. The servants
said unto him, Wilt thou then that we go and gather them up?
||But he said, Nay; lest while ye gather up the tares, ye
root up also the wheat with them.
||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.
||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:
||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
||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.
||All these things spake Jesus unto the multitude in
parables; and without a parable spake he not unto them:
||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 world.
||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.
||He answered and said unto them, He that soweth the good
seed is the Son of man;
||The field is the world; the good seed are the children
of the kingdom; but the tares are the children of the wicked
||The enemy that sowed them is the devil; the harvest is
the end of the world; and the reapers are the angels.
||As therefore the tares are gathered and burned in the
fire; so shall it be in the end of this world.
||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;
||And shall cast them into a furnace of fire: there shall
be wailing and gnashing of teeth.
||Then shall the righteous shine forth as the sun in the
kingdom of their Father. Who hath ears to hear, let him
||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 field.
||Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a merchant
man, seeking goodly pearls:
||Who, when he had found one pearl of great price, went
and sold all that he had, and bought it.
||Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a net, that
was cast into the sea, and gathered of every kind:
||Which, when it was full, they drew to shore, and sat
down, and gathered the good into vessels, but cast the bad
||So shall it be at the end of the world: the angels shall
come forth, and sever the wicked from among the just,
||And shall cast them into the furnace of fire: there
shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth.
||Jesus saith unto them, Have ye understood all these
things? They say unto him, Yea, Lord.
||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.
||And it came to pass, that when Jesus had finished these
parables, he departed thence.
||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
||Is not this the carpenter's son? is not his mother
called Mary? and his brethren, James, and Joses, and Simon,
||And his sisters, are they not all with us? Whence then
hath this man all these things?
||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.
||And he did not many mighty works there because of their
||At that time Herod the tetrarch heard of the fame of
||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.
||For Herod had laid hold on John, and bound him, and put
him in prison for Herodias' sake, his brother Philip's wife.
||For John said unto him, It is not lawful for thee to
||And when he would have put him to death, he feared the
multitude, because they counted him as a prophet.
||But when Herod's birthday was kept, the daughter of
Herodias danced before them, and pleased Herod.
||Whereupon he promised with an oath to give her
whatsoever she would ask.
||And she, being before instructed of her mother, said,
Give me here John Baptist's head in a charger.
||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.
||And he sent, and beheaded John in the prison.
||And his head was brought in a charger, and given to the
damsel: and she brought it to her mother.
||And his disciples came, and took up the body, and buried
it, and went and told Jesus.
||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.
||And Jesus went forth, and saw a great multitude, and was
moved with compassion toward them, and he healed their sick.
||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.
||But Jesus said unto them, They need not depart; give ye
them to eat.
||And they say unto him, We have here but five loaves, and
||He said, Bring them hither to me.
||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.
||And they did all eat, and were filled: and they took up
of the fragments that remained twelve baskets full.
||And they that had eaten were about five thousand men,
beside women and children.
||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.
||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.
||But the ship was now in the midst of the sea, tossed
with waves: for the wind was contrary.
||And in the fourth watch of the night Jesus went unto
them, walking on the sea.
||And when the disciples saw him walking on the sea, they
were troubled, saying, It is a spirit; and they cried out
||But straightway Jesus spake unto them, saying, Be of
good cheer; it is I; be not afraid.
||And Peter answered him and said, Lord, if it be thou,
bid me come unto thee on the water.
||And he said, Come. And when Peter was come down out of
the ship, he walked on the water, to go to Jesus.
||But when he saw the wind boisterous, he was afraid; and
beginning to sink, he cried, saying, Lord, save me.
||And immediately Jesus stretched forth his hand, and
caught him, and said unto him, O thou of little faith,
wherefore didst thou doubt?
||And when they were come into the ship, the wind ceased.
||Then they that were in the ship came and worshipped him,
saying, Of a truth thou art the Son of God.
||And when they were gone over, they came into the land of
||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;
||And besought him that they might only touch the hem of
his garment: and as many as touched were made perfectly
||Then came to Jesus scribes and Pharisees, which were of
||Why do thy disciples transgress the tradition of the
elders? for they wash not their hands when they eat bread.
||But he answered and said unto them, Why do ye also
transgress the commandment of God by your tradition?
||For God commanded, saying, Honour thy father and mother:
and, He that curseth father or mother, let him die the
||But ye say, Whosoever shall say to his father or his
mother, It is a gift, by whatsoever thou mightest be
profited by me;
||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.
||Ye hypocrites, well did Esaias prophesy of you, saying,
||This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and
honoureth me with their lips; but their heart is far from
||But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines
the commandments of men.
||And he called the multitude, and said unto them, Hear,
||Not that which goeth into the mouth defileth a man; but
that which cometh out of the mouth, this defileth a man.
||Then came his disciples, and said unto him, Knowest thou
that the Pharisees were offended, after they heard this
||But he answered and said, Every plant, which my heavenly
Father hath not planted, shall be rooted up.
||Let them alone: they be blind leaders of the blind. And
if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch.
||Then answered Peter and said unto him, Declare unto us
||And Jesus said, Are ye also yet without understanding?
||Do not ye yet understand, that whatsoever entereth in at
the mouth goeth into the belly, and is cast out into the
||But those things which proceed out of the mouth come
forth from the heart; and they defile the man.
||For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders,
adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness,
||These are the things which defile a man: but to eat with
unwashen hands defileth not a man.
||Then Jesus went thence, and departed into the coasts of
Tyre and Sidon.
||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 devil.
||But he answered her not a word. And his disciples came
and besought him, saying, Send her away; for she crieth
||But he answered and said, I am not sent but unto the
lost sheep of the house of Israel.
||Then came she and worshipped him, saying, Lord, help me.
||But he answered and said, It is not meet to take the
children's bread, and to cast it to dogs.
||And she said, Truth, Lord: yet the dogs eat of the
crumbs which fall from their masters' table.
||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.
||And Jesus departed from thence, and came nigh unto the
sea of Galilee; and went up into a mountain, and sat down
||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:
||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.
||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.
||And his disciples say unto him, Whence should we have so
much bread in the wilderness, as to fill so great a
||And Jesus saith unto them, How many loaves have ye? And
they said, Seven, and a few little fishes.
||And he commanded the multitude to sit down on the
||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.
||And they did all eat, and were filled: and they took up
of the broken meat that was left seven baskets full.
||And they that did eat were four thousand men, beside
women and children.
||And he sent away the multitude, and took ship, and came
into the coasts of Magdala.
||The Pharisees also with the Sadducees came, and tempting
desired him that he would shew them a sign from heaven.
||He answered and said unto them, When it is evening, ye
say, It will be fair weather: for the sky is red.
||And in the morning, It will be foul weather to day: for
the sky is red and lowering. O ye hypocrites, ye can discern
the face of the sky; but can ye not discern the signs of the
||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.
||And when his disciples were come to the other side, they
had forgotten to take bread.
||Then Jesus said unto them, Take heed and beware of the
leaven of the Pharisees and of the Sadducees.
||And they reasoned among themselves, saying, It is
because we have taken no bread.
||Which when Jesus perceived, he said unto them, O ye of
little faith, why reason ye among yourselves, because ye
have brought no bread?
||Do ye not yet understand, neither remember the five
loaves of the five thousand, and how many baskets ye took
||Neither the seven loaves of the four thousand, and how
many baskets ye took up?
||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?
||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.
||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?
||And they said, Some say that thou art John the Baptist:
some, Elias; and others, Jeremias, or one of the prophets.
||He saith unto them, But whom say ye that I am?
||And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ,
the Son of the living God.
||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.
||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.
||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.
||Then charged he his disciples that they should tell no
man that he was Jesus the Christ.
||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.
||Then Peter took him, and began to rebuke him, saying, Be
it far from thee, Lord: this shall not be unto thee.
||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.
||Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come
after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and
||For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: and
whosoever will lose his life for my sake shall find it.
||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?
||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.
||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.
||And after six days Jesus taketh Peter, James, and John
his brother, and bringeth them up into an high mountain
||And was transfigured before them: and his face did shine
as the sun, and his raiment was white as the light.
||And, behold, there appeared unto them Moses and Elias
talking with him.
||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
||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.
||And when the disciples heard it, they fell on their
face, and were sore afraid.
||And Jesus came and touched them, and said, Arise, and be
||And when they had lifted up their eyes, they saw no man,
save Jesus only.
||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.
||And his disciples asked him, saying, Why then say the
scribes that Elias must first come?
||And Jesus answered and said unto them, Elias truly shall
first come, and restore all things.
||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.
||Then the disciples understood that he spake unto them of
John the Baptist.
||And when they were come to the multitude, there came to
him a certain man, kneeling down to him, and saying,
||Lord, have mercy on my son: for he is lunatick, and sore
vexed: for ofttimes he falleth into the fire, and oft into
||And I brought him to thy disciples, and they could not
||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.
||And Jesus rebuked the devil; and he departed out of him:
and the child was cured from that very hour.
||Then came the disciples to Jesus apart, and said, Why
could not we cast him out?
||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.
||Howbeit this kind goeth not out but by prayer and
||And while they abode in Galilee, Jesus said unto them,
The Son of man shall be betrayed into the hands of men:
||And they shall kill him, and the third day he shall be
raised again. And they were exceeding sorry.
||And when they were come to Capernaum, they that received
tribute money came to Peter, and said, Doth not your master
||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?
||Peter saith unto him, Of strangers. Jesus saith unto
him, Then are the children free.
||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
||At the same time came the disciples unto Jesus, saying,
Who is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven?
||And Jesus called a little child unto him, and set him in
the midst of them,
||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.
||Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little
child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven.
||And whoso shall receive one such little child in my name
||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.
||Woe unto the world because of offences! for it must
needs be that offences come; but woe to that man by whom the
||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.
||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.
||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.
||For the Son of man is come to save that which was lost.
||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
||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.
||Even so it is not the will of your Father which is in
heaven, that one of these little ones should perish.
||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.
||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.
||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.
||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.
||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.
||For where two or three are gathered together in my name,
there am I in the midst of them.
||Then came Peter to him, and said, Lord, how oft shall my
brother sin against me, and I forgive him? till seven times?
||Jesus saith unto him, I say not unto thee, Until seven
times: but, Until seventy times seven.
||Therefore is the kingdom of heaven likened unto a
certain king, which would take account of his servants.
||And when he had begun to reckon, one was brought unto
him, which owed him ten thousand talents.
||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.
||The servant therefore fell down, and worshipped him,
saying, Lord, have patience with me, and I will pay thee
||Then the lord of that servant was moved with compassion,
and loosed him, and forgave him the debt.
||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.
||And his fellowservant fell down at his feet, and
besought him, saying, Have patience with me, and I will pay
||And he would not: but went and cast him into prison,
till he should pay the debt.
||So when his fellowservants saw what was done, they were
very sorry, and came and told unto their lord all that was
||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:
||Shouldest not thou also have had compassion on thy
fellowservant, even as I had pity on thee?
||And his lord was wroth, and delivered him to the
tormentors, till he should pay all that was due unto him.
||So likewise shall my heavenly Father do also unto you,
if ye from your hearts forgive not every one his brother
||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;
||And great multitudes followed him; and he healed them
||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 cause?
||And he answered and said unto them, Have ye not read,
that he which made them at the beginning made them male and
||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?
||Wherefore they are no more twain, but one flesh. What
therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder.
||They say unto him, Why did Moses then command to give a
writing of divorcement, and to put her away?
||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.
||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.
||His disciples say unto him, If the case of the man be so
with his wife, it is not good to marry.
||But he said unto them, All men cannot receive this
saying, save they to whom it is given.
||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.
||Then were there brought unto him little children, that
he should put his hands on them, and pray: and the disciples
||But Jesus said, Suffer little children, and forbid them
not, to come unto me: for of such is the kingdom of heaven.
||And he laid his hands on them, and departed thence.
||And, behold, one came and said unto him, Good Master,
what good thing shall I do, that I may have eternal life?
||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.
||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,
||Honour thy father and thy mother: and, Thou shalt love
thy neighbour as thyself.
||The young man saith unto him, All these things have I
kept from my youth up: what lack I yet?
||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.
||But when the young man heard that saying, he went away
sorrowful: for he had great possessions.
||Then said Jesus unto his disciples, Verily I say unto
you, That a rich man shall hardly enter into the kingdom of
||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.
||When his disciples heard it, they were exceedingly
amazed, saying, Who then can be saved?
||But Jesus beheld them, and said unto them, With men this
is impossible; but with God all things are possible.
||Then answered Peter and said unto him, Behold, we have
forsaken all, and followed thee; what shall we have
||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.
||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.
||But many that are first shall be last; and the last
shall be first.
||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.
||And when he had agreed with the labourers for a penny a
day, he sent them into his vineyard.
||And he went out about the third hour, and saw others
standing idle in the marketplace,
||And said unto them; Go ye also into the vineyard, and
whatsoever is right I will give you. And they went their
||Again he went out about the sixth and ninth hour, and
||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?
||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.
||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.
||And when they came that were hired about the eleventh
hour, they received every man a penny.
||But when the first came, they supposed that they should
have received more; and they likewise received every man a
||And when they had received it, they murmured against the
goodman of the house,
||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.
||But he answered one of them, and said, Friend, I do thee
no wrong: didst not thou agree with me for a penny?
||Take that thine is, and go thy way: I will give unto
this last, even as unto thee.
||Is it not lawful for me to do what I will with mine own?
Is thine eye evil, because I am good?
||So the last shall be first, and the first last: for many
be called, but few chosen.
||And Jesus going up to Jerusalem took the twelve
disciples apart in the way, and said unto them,
||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,
||And shall deliver him to the Gentiles to mock, and to
scourge, and to crucify him: and the third day he shall rise
||Then came to him the mother of Zebedees children with
her sons, worshipping him, and desiring a certain thing of
||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.
||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.
||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 Father.
||And when the ten heard it, they were moved with
indignation against the two brethren.
||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.
||But it shall not be so among you: but whosoever will be
great among you, let him be your minister;
||And whosoever will be chief among you, let him be your
||Even as the Son of man came not to be ministered unto,
but to minister, and to give his life a ransom for many.
||And as they departed from Jericho, a great multitude
||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.
||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.
||And Jesus stood still, and called them, and said, What
will ye that I shall do unto you?
||They say unto him, Lord, that our eyes may be opened.
||So Jesus had compassion on them, and touched their eyes:
and immediately their eyes received sight, and they followed
||And when they drew nigh unto Jerusalem, and were come to
Bethphage, unto the mount of Olives, then sent Jesus two
||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.
||And if any man say ought unto you, ye shall say, The
Lord hath need of them; and straightway he will send them.
||All this was done, that it might be fulfilled which was
spoken by the prophet, saying,
||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 ass.
||And the disciples went, and did as Jesus commanded them,
||And brought the ass, and the colt, and put on them their
clothes, and they set him thereon.
||And a very great multitude spread their garments in the
way; others cut down branches from the trees, and strawed
them in the way.
||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.
||And when he was come into Jerusalem, all the city was
moved, saying, Who is this?
||And the multitude said, This is Jesus the prophet of
Nazareth of Galilee.
||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
||And said unto them, It is written, My house shall be
called the house of prayer; but ye have made it a den of
||And the blind and the lame came to him in the temple;
and he healed them.
||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
||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?
||And he left them, and went out of the city into Bethany;
and he lodged there.
||Now in the morning as he returned into the city, he
||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.
||And when the disciples saw it, they marvelled, saying,
How soon is the fig tree withered away!
||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.
||And all things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer,
believing, ye shall receive.
||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?
||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.
||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
||But if we shall say, Of men; we fear the people; for all
hold John as a prophet.
||And they answered Jesus, and said, We cannot tell. And
he said unto them, Neither tell I you by what authority I do
||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
||He answered and said, I will not: but afterward he
repented, and went.
||And he came to the second, and said likewise. And he
answered and said, I go, sir: and went not.
||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.
||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.
||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:
||And when the time of the fruit drew near, he sent his
servants to the husbandmen, that they might receive the
fruits of it.
||And the husbandmen took his servants, and beat one, and
killed another, and stoned another.
||Again, he sent other servants more than the first: and
they did unto them likewise.
||But last of all he sent unto them his son, saying, They
will reverence my son.
||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.
||And they caught him, and cast him out of the vineyard,
and slew him.
||When the lord therefore of the vineyard cometh, what
will he do unto those husbandmen?
||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
||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?
||Therefore say I unto you, The kingdom of God shall be
taken from you, and given to a nation bringing forth the
||And whosoever shall fall on this stone shall be broken:
but on whomsoever it shall fall, it will grind him to
||And when the chief priests and Pharisees had heard his
parables, they perceived that he spake of them.
||But when they sought to lay hands on him, they feared
the multitude, because they took him for a prophet.
||And Jesus answered and spake unto them again by
parables, and said,
||The kingdom of heaven is like unto a certain king, which
made a marriage for his son,
||And sent forth his servants to call them that were
bidden to the wedding: and they would not come.
||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.
||But they made light of it, and went their ways, one to
his farm, another to his merchandise:
||And the remnant took his servants, and entreated them
spitefully, and slew them.
||But when the king heard thereof, he was wroth: and he
sent forth his armies, and destroyed those murderers, and
burned up their city.
||Then saith he to his servants, The wedding is ready, but
they which were bidden were not worthy.
||Go ye therefore into the highways, and as many as ye
shall find, bid to the marriage.
||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.
||And when the king came in to see the guests, he saw
there a man which had not on a wedding garment:
||And he saith unto him, Friend, how camest thou in hither
not having a wedding garment? And he was speechless.
||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.
||For many are called, but few are chosen.
||Then went the Pharisees, and took counsel how they might
entangle him in his talk.
||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.
||Tell us therefore, What thinkest thou? Is it lawful to
give tribute unto Caesar, or not?
||But Jesus perceived their wickedness, and said, Why
tempt ye me, ye hypocrites?
||Shew me the tribute money. And they brought unto him a
||And he saith unto them, Whose is this image and
||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.
||When they had heard these words, they marvelled, and
left him, and went their way.
||The same day came to him the Sadducees, which say that
there is no resurrection, and asked him,
||Saying, Master, Moses said, If a man die, having no
children, his brother shall marry his wife, and raise up
seed unto his brother.
||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:
||Likewise the second also, and the third, unto the
||And last of all the woman died also.
||Therefore in the resurrection whose wife shall she be of
the seven? for they all had her.
||Jesus answered and said unto them, Ye do err, not
knowing the scriptures, nor the power of God.
||For in the resurrection they neither marry, nor are
given in marriage, but are as the angels of God in heaven.
||But as touching the resurrection of the dead, have ye
not read that which was spoken unto you by God, saying,
||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
||And when the multitude heard this, they were astonished
at his doctrine.
||But when the Pharisees had heard that he had put the
Sadducees to silence, they were gathered together.
||Then one of them, which was a lawyer, asked him a
question, tempting him, and saying,
||Master, which is the great commandment in the law?
||Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God
with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy
||This is the first and great commandment.
||And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy
neighbour as thyself.
||On these two commandments hang all the law and the
||While the Pharisees were gathered together, Jesus asked
||Saying, What think ye of Christ? whose son is he? They
say unto him, The son of David.
||He saith unto them, How then doth David in spirit call
him Lord, saying,
||The LORD said unto my Lord, Sit thou on my right hand,
till I make thine enemies thy footstool?
||If David then call him Lord, how is he his son?
||And no man was able to answer him a word, neither durst
any man from that day forth ask him any more questions.
||Then spake Jesus to the multitude, and to his disciples,
||Saying The scribes and the Pharisees sit in Moses' seat:
||All therefore whatsoever they bid you observe, that
observe and do; but do not ye after their works: for they
say, and do not.
||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.
||But all their works they do for to be seen of men: they
make broad their phylacteries, and enlarge the borders of
||And love the uppermost rooms at feasts, and the chief
seats in the synagogues,
||And greetings in the markets, and to be called of men,
||But be not ye called Rabbi: for one is your Master, even
Christ; and all ye are brethren.
||And call no man your father upon the earth: for one is
your Father, which is in heaven.
||Neither be ye called masters: for one is your Master,
||But he that is greatest among you shall be your servant.
||And whosoever shall exalt himself shall be abased; and
he that shall humble himself shall be exalted.
||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 in.
||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.
||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
||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!
||Ye fools and blind: for whether is greater, the gold, or
the temple that sanctifieth the gold?
||And, Whosoever shall swear by the altar, it is nothing;
but whosoever sweareth by the gift that is upon it, he is
||Ye fools and blind: for whether is greater, the gift, or
the altar that sanctifieth the gift?
||Whoso therefore shall swear by the altar, sweareth by
it, and by all things thereon.
||And whoso shall swear by the temple, sweareth by it, and
by him that dwelleth therein.
||And he that shall swear by heaven, sweareth by the
throne of God, and by him that sitteth thereon.
||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
||Ye blind guides, which strain at a gnat, and swallow a
||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.
||Thou blind Pharisee, cleanse first that which is within
the cup and platter, that the outside of them may be clean
||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 uncleanness.
||Even so ye also outwardly appear righteous unto men, but
within ye are full of hypocrisy and iniquity.
||Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! because
ye build the tombs of the prophets, and garnish the
sepulchres of the righteous,
||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
||Wherefore ye be witnesses unto yourselves, that ye are
the children of them which killed the prophets.
||Fill ye up then the measure of your fathers.
||Ye serpents, ye generation of vipers, how can ye escape
the damnation of hell?
||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:
||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.
||Verily I say unto you, All these things shall come upon
||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!
||Behold, your house is left unto you desolate.
||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
||And Jesus went out, and departed from the temple: and
his disciples came to him for to shew him the buildings of
||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.
||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?
||And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no
man deceive you.
||For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and
shall deceive many.
||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.
||For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom
against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and
pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.
||All these are the beginning of sorrows.
||Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and
shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my
||And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one
another, and shall hate one another.
||And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive
||And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many
shall wax cold.
||But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be
||And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all
the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the
||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:)
||Then let them which be in Judaea flee into the
||Let him which is on the housetop not come down to take
any thing out of his house:
||Neither let him which is in the field return back to
take his clothes.
||And woe unto them that are with child, and to them that
give suck in those days!
||But pray ye that your flight be not in the winter,
neither on the sabbath day:
||For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not
since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever
||And except those days should be shortened, there should
no flesh be saved: but for the elect's sake those days shall
||Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ,
or there; believe it not.
||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.
||Behold, I have told you before.
||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.
||For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth
even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of
||For wheresoever the carcase is, there will the eagles be
||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:
||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.
||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.
||Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is
yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is
||So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know
that it is near, even at the doors.
||Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass,
till all these things be fulfilled.
||Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not
||But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the
angels of heaven, but my Father only.
||But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of
the Son of man be.
||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,
||And knew not until the flood came, and took them all
away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
||Then shall two be in the field; the one shall be taken,
and the other left.
||Two women shall be grinding at the mill; the one shall
be taken, and the other left.
||Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord
||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
||Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye
think not the Son of man cometh.
||Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom his lord
hath made ruler over his household, to give them meat in due
||Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he cometh
shall find so doing.
||Verily I say unto you, That he shall make him ruler over
all his goods.
||But and if that evil servant shall say in his heart, My
lord delayeth his coming;
||And shall begin to smite his fellowservants, and to eat
and drink with the drunken;
||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,
||And shall cut him asunder, and appoint him his portion
with the hypocrites: there shall be weeping and gnashing of
||Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten
virgins, which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the
||And five of them were wise, and five were foolish.
||They that were foolish took their lamps, and took no oil
||But the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps.
||While the bridegroom tarried, they all slumbered and
||And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the
bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him.
||Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps.
||And the foolish said unto the wise, Give us of your oil;
for our lamps are gone out.
||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.
||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.
||Afterward came also the other virgins, saying, Lord,
Lord, open to us.
||But he answered and said, Verily I say unto you, I know
||Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the
hour wherein the Son of man cometh.
||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.
||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.
||Then he that had received the five talents went and
traded with the same, and made them other five talents.
||And likewise he that had received two, he also gained
||But he that had received one went and digged in the
earth, and hid his lord's money.
||After a long time the lord of those servants cometh, and
reckoneth with them.
||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
||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.
||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.
||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
||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
||And I was afraid, and went and hid thy talent in the
earth: lo, there thou hast that is thine.
||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:
||Thou oughtest therefore to have put my money to the
exchangers, and then at my coming I should have received
mine own with usury.
||Take therefore the talent from him, and give it unto him
which hath ten talents.
||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.
||And cast ye the unprofitable servant into outer
darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
||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
||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:
||And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the
goats on the left.
||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:
||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
||Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me:
I was in prison, and ye came unto me.
||Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when
saw we thee an hungred, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave
||When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked,
and clothed thee?
||Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto
||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.
||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:
||For I was an hungred, and ye gave me no meat: I was
thirsty, and ye gave me no drink:
||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.
||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?
||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.
||And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but
the righteous into life eternal.
||And it came to pass, when Jesus had finished all these
sayings, he said unto his disciples,
||Ye know that after two days is the feast of the
passover, and the Son of man is betrayed to be crucified.
||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,
||And consulted that they might take Jesus by subtilty,
and kill him.
||But they said, Not on the feast day, lest there be an
uproar among the people.
||Now when Jesus was in Bethany, in the house of Simon the
||There came unto him a woman having an alabaster box of
very precious ointment, and poured it on his head, as he sat
||But when his disciples saw it, they had indignation,
saying, To what purpose is this waste?
||For this ointment might have been sold for much, and
given to the poor.
||When Jesus understood it, he said unto them, Why trouble
ye the woman? for she hath wrought a good work upon me.
||For ye have the poor always with you; but me ye have not
||For in that she hath poured this ointment on my body,
she did it for my burial.
||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.
||Then one of the twelve, called Judas Iscariot, went unto
the chief priests,
||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.
||And from that time he sought opportunity to betray him.
||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?
||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.
||And the disciples did as Jesus had appointed them; and
they made ready the passover.
||Now when the even was come, he sat down with the twelve.
||And as they did eat, he said, Verily I say unto you,
that one of you shall betray me.
||And they were exceeding sorrowful, and began every one
of them to say unto him, Lord, is it I?
||And he answered and said, He that dippeth his hand with
me in the dish, the same shall betray me.
||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.
||Then Judas, which betrayed him, answered and said,
Master, is it I? He said unto him, Thou hast said.
||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.
||And he took the cup, and gave thanks, and gave it to
them, saying, Drink ye all of it;
||For this is my blood of the new testament, which is shed
for many for the remission of sins.
||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.
||And when they had sung an hymn, they went out into the
mount of Olives.
||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
||But after I am risen again, I will go before you into
||Peter answered and said unto him, Though all men shall
be offended because of thee, yet will I never be offended.
||Jesus said unto him, Verily I say unto thee, That this
night, before the cock crow, thou shalt deny me thrice.
||Peter said unto him, Though I should die with thee, yet
will I not deny thee. Likewise also said all the disciples.
||Then cometh Jesus with them unto a place called
Gethsemane, and saith unto the disciples, Sit ye here, while
I go and pray yonder.
||And he took with him Peter and the two sons of Zebedee,
and began to be sorrowful and very heavy.
||Then saith he unto them, My soul is exceeding sorrowful,
even unto death: tarry ye here, and watch with me.
||And he went a little farther, 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.
||And he cometh unto the disciples, and findeth them
asleep, and saith unto Peter, What, could ye not watch with
me one hour?
||Watch and pray, that ye enter not into temptation: the
spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.
||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.
||And he came and found them asleep again: for their eyes
||And he left them, and went away again, and prayed the
third time, saying the same words.
||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
||Rise, let us be going: behold, he is at hand that doth
||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.
||Now he that betrayed him gave them a sign, saying,
Whomsoever I shall kiss, that same is he: hold him fast.
||And forthwith he came to Jesus, and said, Hail, master;
and kissed him.
||And Jesus said unto him, Friend, wherefore art thou
come? Then came they, and laid hands on Jesus and took him.
||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.
||Then said Jesus unto him, Put up again thy sword into
his place: for all they that take the sword shall perish
with the sword.
||Thinkest thou that I cannot now pray to my Father, and
he shall presently give me more than twelve legions of
||But how then shall the scriptures be fulfilled, that
thus it must be?
||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.
||But all this was done, that the scriptures of the
prophets might be fulfilled. Then all the disciples forsook
him, and fled.
||And they that had laid hold on Jesus led him away to
Caiaphas the high priest, where the scribes and the elders
||But Peter followed him afar off unto the high priest's
palace, and went in, and sat with the servants, to see the
||Now the chief priests, and elders, and all the council,
sought false witness against Jesus, to put him to death;
||But found none: yea, though many false witnesses came,
yet found they none. At the last came two false witnesses,
||And said, This fellow said, I am able to destroy the
temple of God, and to build it in three days.
||And the high priest arose, and said unto him, Answerest
thou nothing? what is it which these witness against thee?
||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.
||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.
||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.
||What think ye? They answered and said, He is guilty of
||Then did they spit in his face, and buffeted him; and
others smote him with the palms of their hands,
||Saying, Prophesy unto us, thou Christ, Who is he that
||Now Peter sat without in the palace: and a damsel came
unto him, saying, Thou also wast with Jesus of Galilee.
||But he denied before them all, saying, I know not what
||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.
||And again he denied with an oath, I do not know the man.
||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.
||Then began he to curse and to swear, saying, I know not
the man. And immediately the cock crew.
||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.
||When the morning was come, all the chief priests and
elders of the people took counsel against Jesus to put him
||And when they had bound him, they led him away, and
delivered him to Pontius Pilate the governor.
||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,
||Saying, I have sinned in that I have betrayed the
innocent blood. And they said, What is that to us? see thou
||And he cast down the pieces of silver in the temple, and
departed, and went and hanged himself.
||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.
||And they took counsel, and bought with them the potter's
field, to bury strangers in.
||Wherefore that field was called, The field of blood,
unto this day.
||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;
||And gave them for the potter's field, as the Lord
||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.
||And when he was accused of the chief priests and elders,
he answered nothing.
||Then said Pilate unto him, Hearest thou not how many
things they witness against thee?
||And he answered him to never a word; insomuch that the
governor marvelled greatly.
||Now at that feast the governor was wont to release unto
the people a prisoner, whom they would.
||And they had then a notable prisoner, called Barabbas.
||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?
||For he knew that for envy they had delivered him.
||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 him.
||But the chief priests and elders persuaded the multitude
that they should ask Barabbas, and destroy Jesus.
||The governor answered and said unto them, Whether of the
twain will ye that I release unto you? They said, Barabbas.
||Pilate saith unto them, What shall I do then with Jesus
which is called Christ? They all say unto him, Let him be
||And the governor said, Why, what evil hath he done? But
they cried out the more, saying, Let him be crucified.
||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.
||Then answered all the people, and said, His blood be on
us, and on our children.
||Then released he Barabbas unto them: and when he had
scourged Jesus, he delivered him to be crucified.
||Then the soldiers of the governor took Jesus into the
common hall, and gathered unto him the whole band of
||And they stripped him, and put on him a scarlet robe.
||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
||And they spit upon him, and took the reed, and smote him
on the head.
||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.
||And as they came out, they found a man of Cyrene, Simon
by name: him they compelled to bear his cross.
||And when they were come unto a place called Golgotha,
that is to say, a place of a skull,
||They gave him vinegar to drink mingled with gall: and
when he had tasted thereof, he would not drink.
||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.
||And sitting down they watched him there;
||And set up over his head his accusation written, THIS IS
JESUS THE KING OF THE JEWS.
||Then were there two thieves crucified with him, one on
the right hand, and another on the left.
||And they that passed by reviled him, wagging their
||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.
||Likewise also the chief priests mocking him, with the
scribes and elders, said,
||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.
||He trusted in God; let him deliver him now, if he will
have him: for he said, I am the Son of God.
||The thieves also, which were crucified with him, cast
the same in his teeth.
||Now from the sixth hour there was darkness over all the
land unto the ninth hour.
||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?
||Some of them that stood there, when they heard that,
said, This man calleth for Elias.
||And straightway one of them ran, and took a spunge, and
filled it with vinegar, and put it on a reed, and gave him
||The rest said, Let be, let us see whether Elias will
come to save him.
||Jesus, when he had cried again with a loud voice,
yielded up the ghost.
||And, behold, the veil of the temple was rent in twain
from the top to the bottom; and the earth did quake, and the
||And the graves were opened; and many bodies of the
saints which slept arose,
||And came out of the graves after his resurrection, and
went into the holy city, and appeared unto many.
||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 God.
||And many women were there beholding afar off, which
followed Jesus from Galilee, ministering unto him:
||Among which was Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of
James and Joses, and the mother of Zebedees children.
||When the even was come, there came a rich man of
Arimathaea, named Joseph, who also himself was Jesus'
||He went to Pilate, and begged the body of Jesus. Then
Pilate commanded the body to be delivered.
||And when Joseph had taken the body, he wrapped it in a
clean linen cloth,
||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.
||And there was Mary Magdalene, and the other Mary,
sitting over against the sepulchre.
||Now the next day, that followed the day of the
preparation, the chief priests and Pharisees came together
||Saying, Sir, we remember that that deceiver said, while
he was yet alive, After three days I will rise again.
||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.
||Pilate said unto them, Ye have a watch: go your way,
make it as sure as ye can.
||So they went, and made the sepulchre sure, sealing the
stone, and setting a watch.
||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.
||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.
||His countenance was like lightning, and his raiment
white as snow:
||And for fear of him the keepers did shake, and became as
||And the angel answered and said unto the women, Fear not
ye: for I know that ye seek Jesus, which was crucified.
||He is not here: for he is risen, as he said. Come, see
the place where the Lord lay.
||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.
||And they departed quickly from the sepulchre with fear
and great joy; and did run to bring his disciples word.
||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.
||Then said Jesus unto them, Be not afraid: go tell my
brethren that they go into Galilee, and there shall they see
||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.
||And when they were assembled with the elders, and had
taken counsel, they gave large money unto the soldiers,
||Saying, Say ye, His disciples came by night, and stole
him away while we slept.
||And if this come to the governor's ears, we will
persuade him, and secure you.
||So they took the money, and did as they were taught: and
this saying is commonly reported among the Jews until this
||Then the eleven disciples went away into Galilee, into a
mountain where Jesus had appointed them.
||And when they saw him, they worshipped him: but some
||And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is
given unto me in heaven and in earth.
||Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them
in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy
||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.
