40:026:027 And he took the cup, and gave thanks, and gave it to them,
saying, Drink ye all of it;

40:026:028 For this is my blood of the new testament, which is shed for
many for the remission of sins.

40:026:029 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.

40:026:030 And when they had sung an hymn, they went out into the mount
of Olives.

40:026:031 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

40:026:032 But after I am risen again, I will go before you into Galilee.

40:026:033 Peter answered and said unto him, Though all men shall be
offended because of thee, yet will I never be offended.

40:026:034 Jesus said unto him, Verily I say unto thee, That this night,
before the cock crow, thou shalt deny me thrice.

40:026:035 Peter said unto him, Though I should die with thee, yet will I
not deny thee. Likewise also said all the disciples.

40:026:036 Then cometh Jesus with them unto a place called Gethsemane,
and saith unto the disciples, Sit ye here, while I go and pray

40:026:037 And he took with him Peter and the two sons of Zebedee, and
began to be sorrowful and very heavy.

40:026:038 Then saith he unto them, My soul is exceeding sorrowful, even
unto death: tarry ye here, and watch with me.

40:026:039 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.

40:026:040 And he cometh unto the disciples, and findeth them asleep, and
saith unto Peter, What, could ye not watch with me one hour?

40:026:041 Watch and pray, that ye enter not into temptation: the spirit
indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.

40:026:042 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.

40:026:043 And he came and found them asleep again: for their eyes were

40:026:044 And he left them, and went away again, and prayed the third
time, saying the same words.

40:026:045 Then cometh he to his disciples, and saith unto them, Sleep on
now, and take your rest: behold, the hour is at hand, and the
Son of man is betrayed into the hands of sinners.

40:026:046 Rise, let us be going: behold, he is at hand that doth betray

40:026:047 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.

40:026:048 Now he that betrayed him gave them a sign, saying, Whomsoever
I shall kiss, that same is he: hold him fast.

40:026:049 And forthwith he came to Jesus, and said, Hail, master; and
kissed him.

40:026:050 And Jesus said unto him, Friend, wherefore art thou come? Then
came they, and laid hands on Jesus and took him.

40:026:051 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.

40:026:052 Then said Jesus unto him, Put up again thy sword into his
place: for all they that take the sword shall perish with the

40:026:053 Thinkest thou that I cannot now pray to my Father, and he
shall presently give me more than twelve legions of angels?

40:026:054 But how then shall the scriptures be fulfilled, that thus it
must be?

40:026:055 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.

40:026:056 But all this was done, that the scriptures of the prophets
might be fulfilled. Then all the disciples forsook him, and

40:026:057 And they that had laid hold on Jesus led him away to Caiaphas
the high priest, where the scribes and the elders were

40:026:058 But Peter followed him afar off unto the high priest's palace,
and went in, and sat with the servants, to see the end.

40:026:059 Now the chief priests, and elders, and all the council, sought
false witness against Jesus, to put him to death;

40:026:060 But found none: yea, though many false witnesses came, yet
found they none. At the last came two false witnesses,

40:026:061 And said, This fellow said, I am able to destroy the temple of
God, and to build it in three days.

40:026:062 And the high priest arose, and said unto him, Answerest thou
nothing? what is it which these witness against thee?

40:026:063 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.

40:026:064 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.

40:026:065 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.

40:026:066 What think ye? They answered and said, He is guilty of death.

40:026:067 Then did they spit in his face, and buffeted him; and others
smote him with the palms of their hands,

40:026:068 Saying, Prophesy unto us, thou Christ, Who is he that smote

40:026:069 Now Peter sat without in the palace: and a damsel came unto
him, saying, Thou also wast with Jesus of Galilee.

40:026:070 But he denied before them all, saying, I know not what thou

40:026:071 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.

40:026:072 And again he denied with an oath, I do not know the man.

40:026:073 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.

40:026:074 Then began he to curse and to swear, saying, I know not the
man. And immediately the cock crew.

40:026:075 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.

40:027:001 When the morning was come, all the chief priests and elders of
the people took counsel against Jesus to put him to death:

40:027:002 And when they had bound him, they led him away, and delivered
him to Pontius Pilate the governor.

40:027:003 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,

40:027:004 Saying, I have sinned in that I have betrayed the innocent
blood. And they said, What is that to us? see thou to that.

40:027:005 And he cast down the pieces of silver in the temple, and
departed, and went and hanged himself.

40:027:006 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.

40:027:007 And they took counsel, and bought with them the potter's
field, to bury strangers in.

40:027:008 Wherefore that field was called, The field of blood, unto this

40:027:009 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;

40:027:010 And gave them for the potter's field, as the Lord appointed

40:027:011 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.

40:027:012 And when he was accused of the chief priests and elders, he
answered nothing.

40:027:013 Then said Pilate unto him, Hearest thou not how many things
they witness against thee?

40:027:014 And he answered him to never a word; insomuch that the
governor marvelled greatly.

40:027:015 Now at that feast the governor was wont to release unto the
people a prisoner, whom they would.

40:027:016 And they had then a notable prisoner, called Barabbas.

40:027:017 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?

40:027:018 For he knew that for envy they had delivered him.

40:027:019 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.

40:027:020 But the chief priests and elders persuaded the multitude that
they should ask Barabbas, and destroy Jesus.

40:027:021 The governor answered and said unto them, Whether of the twain
will ye that I release unto you? They said, Barabbas.

40:027:022 Pilate saith unto them, What shall I do then with Jesus which
is called Christ? They all say unto him, Let him be crucified.

40:027:023 And the governor said, Why, what evil hath he done? But they
cried out the more, saying, Let him be crucified.

40:027:024 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.

40:027:025 Then answered all the people, and said, His blood be on us,
and on our children.

40:027:026 Then released he Barabbas unto them: and when he had scourged
Jesus, he delivered him to be crucified.

40:027:027 Then the soldiers of the governor took Jesus into the common
hall, and gathered unto him the whole band of soldiers.

40:027:028 And they stripped him, and put on him a scarlet robe.

40:027:029 And when they had platted a crown of thorns, they put it upon
his head, and a reed in his right hand: and they bowed the
knee before him, and mocked him, saying, Hail, King of the

40:027:030 And they spit upon him, and took the reed, and smote him on
the head.

40:027:031 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.

40:027:032 And as they came out, they found a man of Cyrene, Simon by
name: him they compelled to bear his cross.

40:027:033 And when they were come unto a place called Golgotha, that is
to say, a place of a skull,

40:027:034 They gave him vinegar to drink mingled with gall: and when he
had tasted thereof, he would not drink.

40:027:035 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.

40:027:036 And sitting down they watched him there;

40:027:037 And set up over his head his accusation written, THIS IS JESUS

40:027:038 Then were there two thieves crucified with him, one on the
right hand, and another on the left.

40:027:039 And they that passed by reviled him, wagging their heads,

40:027:040 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.

40:027:041 Likewise also the chief priests mocking him, with the scribes
and elders, said,

40:027:042 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.

40:027:043 He trusted in God; let him deliver him now, if he will have
him: for he said, I am the Son of God.

40:027:044 The thieves also, which were crucified with him, cast the same
in his teeth.

40:027:045 Now from the sixth hour there was darkness over all the land
unto the ninth hour.

40:027:046 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?

40:027:047 Some of them that stood there, when they heard that, said,
This man calleth for Elias.

40:027:048 And straightway one of them ran, and took a spunge, and filled
it with vinegar, and put it on a reed, and gave him to drink.

40:027:049 The rest said, Let be, let us see whether Elias will come to
save him.

40:027:050 Jesus, when he had cried again with a loud voice, yielded up
the ghost.

40:027:051 And, behold, the veil of the temple was rent in twain from the
top to the bottom; and the earth did quake, and the rocks

40:027:052 And the graves were opened; and many bodies of the saints
which slept arose,

40:027:053 And came out of the graves after his resurrection, and went
into the holy city, and appeared unto many.

40:027:054 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.

40:027:055 And many women were there beholding afar off, which followed
Jesus from Galilee, ministering unto him:

40:027:056 Among which was Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of James
and Joses, and the mother of Zebedees children.

40:027:057 When the even was come, there came a rich man of Arimathaea,
named Joseph, who also himself was Jesus' disciple:

40:027:058 He went to Pilate, and begged the body of Jesus. Then Pilate
commanded the body to be delivered.

40:027:059 And when Joseph had taken the body, he wrapped it in a clean
linen cloth,

40:027:060 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.

40:027:061 And there was Mary Magdalene, and the other Mary, sitting over
against the sepulchre.

40:027:062 Now the next day, that followed the day of the preparation,
the chief priests and Pharisees came together unto Pilate,

40:027:063 Saying, Sir, we remember that that deceiver said, while he was
yet alive, After three days I will rise again.

40:027:064 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.

40:027:065 Pilate said unto them, Ye have a watch: go your way, make it
as sure as ye can.

40:027:066 So they went, and made the sepulchre sure, sealing the stone,
and setting a watch.

40:028:001 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.

40:028:002 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.

40:028:003 His countenance was like lightning, and his raiment white as

40:028:004 And for fear of him the keepers did shake, and became as dead

40:028:005 And the angel answered and said unto the women, Fear not ye:
for I know that ye seek Jesus, which was crucified.

40:028:006 He is not here: for he is risen, as he said. Come, see the
place where the Lord lay.

40:028:007 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.

40:028:008 And they departed quickly from the sepulchre with fear and
great joy; and did run to bring his disciples word.

40:028:009 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.

40:028:010 Then said Jesus unto them, Be not afraid: go tell my brethren
that they go into Galilee, and there shall they see me.

40:028:011 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.

40:028:012 And when they were assembled with the elders, and had taken
counsel, they gave large money unto the soldiers,

40:028:013 Saying, Say ye, His disciples came by night, and stole him
away while we slept.

40:028:014 And if this come to the governor's ears, we will persuade him,
and secure you.

40:028:015 So they took the money, and did as they were taught: and this
saying is commonly reported among the Jews until this day.

40:028:016 Then the eleven disciples went away into Galilee, into a
mountain where Jesus had appointed them.

40:028:017 And when they saw him, they worshipped him: but some doubted.

40:028:018 And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given
unto me in heaven and in earth.

40:028:019 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the
name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:

40:028:020 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.

Book 41 Mark

41:001:001 The beginning of the gospel of Jesus Christ, the Son of God;

41:001:002 As it is written in the prophets, Behold, I send my messenger
before thy face, which shall prepare thy way before thee.

41:001:003 The voice of one crying in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way
of the Lord, make his paths straight.

41:001:004 John did baptize in the wilderness, and preach the baptism of
repentance for the remission of sins.

41:001:005 And there went out unto him all the land of Judaea, and they
of Jerusalem, and were all baptized of him in the river of
Jordan, confessing their sins.

41:001:006 And John was clothed with camel's hair, and with a girdle of a
skin about his loins; and he did eat locusts and wild honey;

41:001:007 And preached, saying, There cometh one mightier than I after
me, the latchet of whose shoes I am not worthy to stoop down
and unloose.

41:001:008 I indeed have baptized you with water: but he shall baptize
you with the Holy Ghost.

41:001:009 And it came to pass in those days, that Jesus came from
Nazareth of Galilee, and was baptized of John in Jordan.

41:001:010 And straightway coming up out of the water, he saw the heavens
opened, and the Spirit like a dove descending upon him:

41:001:011 And there came a voice from heaven, saying, Thou art my
beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.

41:001:012 And immediately the spirit driveth him into the wilderness.

41:001:013 And he was there in the wilderness forty days, tempted of
Satan; and was with the wild beasts; and the angels ministered
unto him.

41:001:014 Now after that John was put in prison, Jesus came into
Galilee, preaching the gospel of the kingdom of God,

41:001:015 And saying, The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is
at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel.

41:001:016 Now as he walked by the sea of Galilee, he saw Simon and
Andrew his brother casting a net into the sea: for they were

41:001:017 And Jesus said unto them, Come ye after me, and I will make
you to become fishers of men.

41:001:018 And straightway they forsook their nets, and followed him.

41:001:019 And when he had gone a little farther thence, he saw James the
son of Zebedee, and John his brother, who also were in the
ship mending their nets.

41:001:020 And straightway he called them: and they left their father
Zebedee in the ship with the hired servants, and went after

41:001:021 And they went into Capernaum; and straightway on the sabbath
day he entered into the synagogue, and taught.

41:001:022 And they were astonished at his doctrine: for he taught them
as one that had authority, and not as the scribes.

41:001:023 And there was in their synagogue a man with an unclean spirit;
and he cried out,

41:001:024 Saying, Let us alone; what have we to do with thee, thou Jesus
of Nazareth? art thou come to destroy us? I know thee who thou
art, the Holy One of God.

41:001:025 And Jesus rebuked him, saying, Hold thy peace, and come out of

41:001:026 And when the unclean spirit had torn him, and cried with a
loud voice, he came out of him.

41:001:027 And they were all amazed, insomuch that they questioned among
themselves, saying, What thing is this? what new doctrine is
this? for with authority commandeth he even the unclean
spirits, and they do obey him.

41:001:028 And immediately his fame spread abroad throughout all the
region round about Galilee.

41:001:029 And forthwith, when they were come out of the synagogue, they
entered into the house of Simon and Andrew, with James and

41:001:030 But Simon's wife's mother lay sick of a fever, and anon they
tell him of her.

41:001:031 And he came and took her by the hand, and lifted her up; and
immediately the fever left her, and she ministered unto them.

41:001:032 And at even, when the sun did set, they brought unto him all
that were diseased, and them that were possessed with devils.

41:001:033 And all the city was gathered together at the door.

41:001:034 And he healed many that were sick of divers diseases, and cast
out many devils; and suffered not the devils to speak, because
they knew him.

41:001:035 And in the morning, rising up a great while before day, he
went out, and departed into a solitary place, and there

41:001:036 And Simon and they that were with him followed after him.

41:001:037 And when they had found him, they said unto him, All men seek
for thee.

41:001:038 And he said unto them, Let us go into the next towns, that I
may preach there also: for therefore came I forth.

41:001:039 And he preached in their synagogues throughout all Galilee,
and cast out devils.

41:001:040 And there came a leper to him, beseeching him, and kneeling
down to him, and saying unto him, If thou wilt, thou canst
make me clean.

41:001:041 And Jesus, moved with compassion, put forth his hand, and
touched him, and saith unto him, I will; be thou clean.

41:001:042 And as soon as he had spoken, immediately the leprosy departed
from him, and he was cleansed.

41:001:043 And he straitly charged him, and forthwith sent him away;

41:001:044 And saith unto him, See thou say nothing to any man: but go
thy way, shew thyself to the priest, and offer for thy
cleansing those things which Moses commanded, for a testimony
unto them.

41:001:045 But he went out, and began to publish it much, and to blaze
abroad the matter, insomuch that Jesus could no more openly
enter into the city, but was without in desert places: and
they came to him from every quarter.

41:002:001 And again he entered into Capernaum after some days; and it
was noised that he was in the house.

41:002:002 And straightway many were gathered together, insomuch that
there was no room to receive them, no, not so much as about
the door: and he preached the word unto them.

41:002:003 And they come unto him, bringing one sick of the palsy, which
was borne of four.

41:002:004 And when they could not come nigh unto him for the press, they
uncovered the roof where he was: and when they had broken it
up, they let down the bed wherein the sick of the palsy lay.

41:002:005 When Jesus saw their faith, he said unto the sick of the
palsy, Son, thy sins be forgiven thee.

41:002:006 But there was certain of the scribes sitting there, and
reasoning in their hearts,

41:002:007 Why doth this man thus speak blasphemies? who can forgive sins
but God only?

41:002:008 And immediately when Jesus perceived in his spirit that they
so reasoned within themselves, he said unto them, Why reason
ye these things in your hearts?

41:002:009 Whether is it easier to say to the sick of the palsy, Thy sins
be forgiven thee; or to say, Arise, and take up thy bed, and

41:002:010 But that ye may know that the Son of man hath power on earth
to forgive sins, (he saith to the sick of the palsy,)

41:002:011 I say unto thee, Arise, and take up thy bed, and go thy way
into thine house.

41:002:012 And immediately he arose, took up the bed, and went forth
before them all; insomuch that they were all amazed, and
glorified God, saying, We never saw it on this fashion.

41:002:013 And he went forth again by the sea side; and all the multitude
resorted unto him, and he taught them.

41:002:014 And as he passed by, he saw Levi the son of Alphaeus sitting
at the receipt of custom, and said unto him, Follow me. And he
arose and followed him.

41:002:015 And it came to pass, that, as Jesus sat at meat in his house,
many publicans and sinners sat also together with Jesus and
his disciples: for there were many, and they followed him.

41:002:016 And when the scribes and Pharisees saw him eat with publicans
and sinners, they said unto his disciples, How is it that he
eateth and drinketh with publicans and sinners?

41:002:017 When Jesus heard it, he saith unto them, They that are whole
have no need of the physician, but they that are sick: I came
not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.

41:002:018 And the disciples of John and of the Pharisees used to fast:
and they come and say unto him, Why do the disciples of John
and of the Pharisees fast, but thy disciples fast not?

41:002:019 And Jesus said unto them, Can the children of the bridechamber
fast, while the bridegroom is with them? as long as they have
the bridegroom with them, they cannot fast.

41:002:020 But the days will come, when the bridegroom shall be taken
away from them, and then shall they fast in those days.

41:002:021 No man also seweth a piece of new cloth on an old garment:
else the new piece that filled it up taketh away from the old,
and the rent is made worse.

41:002:022 And no man putteth new wine into old bottles: else the new
wine doth burst the bottles, and the wine is spilled, and the
bottles will be marred: but new wine must be put into new

41:002:023 And it came to pass, that he went through the corn fields on
the sabbath day; and his disciples began, as they went, to
pluck the ears of corn.

41:002:024 And the Pharisees said unto him, Behold, why do they on the
sabbath day that which is not lawful?

41:002:025 And he said unto them, Have ye never read what David did, when
he had need, and was an hungred, he, and they that were with

41:002:026 How he went into the house of God in the days of Abiathar the
high priest, and did eat the shewbread, which is not lawful to
eat but for the priests, and gave also to them which were with

41:002:027 And he said unto them, The sabbath was made for man, and not
man for the sabbath:

41:002:028 Therefore the Son of man is Lord also of the sabbath.

41:003:001 And he entered again into the synagogue; and there was a man
there which had a withered hand.

41:003:002 And they watched him, whether he would heal him on the sabbath
day; that they might accuse him.

41:003:003 And he saith unto the man which had the withered hand, Stand

41:003:004 And he saith unto them, Is it lawful to do good on the sabbath
days, or to do evil? to save life, or to kill? But they held
their peace.

41:003:005 And when he had looked round about on them with anger, being
grieved for the hardness of their hearts, he saith unto the
man, Stretch forth thine hand. And he stretched it out: and
his hand was restored whole as the other.

41:003:006 And the Pharisees went forth, and straightway took counsel
with the Herodians against him, how they might destroy him.

41:003:007 But Jesus withdrew himself with his disciples to the sea: and
a great multitude from Galilee followed him, and from Judaea,

41:003:008 And from Jerusalem, and from Idumaea, and from beyond Jordan;
and they about Tyre and Sidon, a great multitude, when they
had heard what great things he did, came unto him.

41:003:009 And he spake to his disciples, that a small ship should wait
on him because of the multitude, lest they should throng him.

41:003:010 For he had healed many; insomuch that they pressed upon him
for to touch him, as many as had plagues.

41:003:011 And unclean spirits, when they saw him, fell down before him,
and cried, saying, Thou art the Son of God.

41:003:012 And he straitly charged them that they should not make him

41:003:013 And he goeth up into a mountain, and calleth unto him whom he
would: and they came unto him.

41:003:014 And he ordained twelve, that they should be with him, and that
he might send them forth to preach,

41:003:015 And to have power to heal sicknesses, and to cast out devils:

41:003:016 And Simon he surnamed Peter;

41:003:017 And James the son of Zebedee, and John the brother of James;
and he surnamed them Boanerges, which is, The sons of thunder:

41:003:018 And Andrew, and Philip, and Bartholomew, and Matthew, and
Thomas, and James the son of Alphaeus, and Thaddaeus, and
Simon the Canaanite,

41:003:019 And Judas Iscariot, which also betrayed him: and they went
into an house.

41:003:020 And the multitude cometh together again, so that they could
not so much as eat bread.

41:003:021 And when his friends heard of it, they went out to lay hold on
him: for they said, He is beside himself.

41:003:022 And the scribes which came down from Jerusalem said, He hath
Beelzebub, and by the prince of the devils casteth he out

41:003:023 And he called them unto him, and said unto them in parables,
How can Satan cast out Satan?

41:003:024 And if a kingdom be divided against itself, that kingdom
cannot stand.

41:003:025 And if a house be divided against itself, that house cannot

41:003:026 And if Satan rise up against himself, and be divided, he
cannot stand, but hath an end.

41:003:027 No man can enter into a strong man's house, and spoil his
goods, except he will first bind the strong man; and then he
will spoil his house.

41:003:028 Verily I say unto you, All sins shall be forgiven unto the
sons of men, and blasphemies wherewith soever they shall

41:003:029 But he that shall blaspheme against the Holy Ghost hath never
forgiveness, but is in danger of eternal damnation.

41:003:030 Because they said, He hath an unclean spirit.

41:003:031 There came then his brethren and his mother, and, standing
without, sent unto him, calling him.

41:003:032 And the multitude sat about him, and they said unto him,
Behold, thy mother and thy brethren without seek for thee.

41:003:033 And he answered them, saying, Who is my mother, or my

41:003:034 And he looked round about on them which sat about him, and
said, Behold my mother and my brethren!

41:003:035 For whosoever shall do the will of God, the same is my
brother, and my sister, and mother.

41:004:001 And he began again to teach by the sea side: and there was
gathered unto him a great multitude, so that he entered into a
ship, and sat in the sea; and the whole multitude was by the
sea on the land.

41:004:002 And he taught them many things by parables, and said unto them
in his doctrine,

41:004:003 Hearken; Behold, there went out a sower to sow:

41:004:004 And it came to pass, as he sowed, some fell by the way side,
and the fowls of the air came and devoured it up.

41:004:005 And some fell on stony ground, where it had not much earth;
and immediately it sprang up, because it had no depth of

41:004:006 But when the sun was up, it was scorched; and because it had
no root, it withered away.

41:004:007 And some fell among thorns, and the thorns grew up, and choked
it, and it yielded no fruit.

41:004:008 And other fell on good ground, and did yield fruit that sprang
up and increased; and brought forth, some thirty, and some
sixty, and some an hundred.

41:004:009 And he said unto them, He that hath ears to hear, let him

41:004:010 And when he was alone, they that were about him with the
twelve asked of him the parable.

41:004:011 And he said unto them, Unto you it is given to know the
mystery of the kingdom of God: but unto them that are without,
all these things are done in parables:

41:004:012 That seeing they may see, and not perceive; and hearing they
may hear, and not understand; lest at any time they should be
converted, and their sins should be forgiven them.

41:004:013 And he said unto them, Know ye not this parable? and how then
will ye know all parables?

41:004:014 The sower soweth the word.

41:004:015 And these are they by the way side, where the word is sown;
but when they have heard, Satan cometh immediately, and taketh
away the word that was sown in their hearts.

41:004:016 And these are they likewise which are sown on stony ground;
who, when they have heard the word, immediately receive it
with gladness;

41:004:017 And have no root in themselves, and so endure but for a time:
afterward, when affliction or persecution ariseth for the
word's sake, immediately they are offended.

41:004:018 And these are they which are sown among thorns; such as hear
the word,

41:004:019 And the cares of this world, and the deceitfulness of riches,
and the lusts of other things entering in, choke the word, and
it becometh unfruitful.

41:004:020 And these are they which are sown on good ground; such as hear
the word, and receive it, and bring forth fruit, some
thirtyfold, some sixty, and some an hundred.

41:004:021 And he said unto them, Is a candle brought to be put under a
bushel, or under a bed? and not to be set on a candlestick?

41:004:022 For there is nothing hid, which shall not be manifested;
neither was any thing kept secret, but that it should come

41:004:023 If any man have ears to hear, let him hear.

41:004:024 And he said unto them, Take heed what ye hear: with what
measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you: and unto you
that hear shall more be given.

41:004:025 For he that hath, to him shall be given: and he that hath not,
from him shall be taken even that which he hath.

41:004:026 And he said, So is the kingdom of God, as if a man should cast
seed into the ground;

41:004:027 And should sleep, and rise night and day, and the seed should
spring and grow up, he knoweth not how.

41:004:028 For the earth bringeth forth fruit of herself; first the
blade, then the ear, after that the full corn in the ear.

41:004:029 But when the fruit is brought forth, immediately he putteth in
the sickle, because the harvest is come.

41:004:030 And he said, Whereunto shall we liken the kingdom of God? or
with what comparison shall we compare it?

41:004:031 It is like a grain of mustard seed, which, when it is sown in
the earth, is less than all the seeds that be in the earth:

41:004:032 But when it is sown, it groweth up, and becometh greater than
all herbs, and shooteth out great branches; so that the fowls
of the air may lodge under the shadow of it.

41:004:033 And with many such parables spake he the word unto them, as
they were able to hear it.

41:004:034 But without a parable spake he not unto them: and when they
were alone, he expounded all things to his disciples.

41:004:035 And the same day, when the even was come, he saith unto them,
Let us pass over unto the other side.

41:004:036 And when they had sent away the multitude, they took him even
as he was in the ship. And there were also with him other
little ships.

41:004:037 And there arose a great storm of wind, and the waves beat into
the ship, so that it was now full.

41:004:038 And he was in the hinder part of the ship, asleep on a pillow:
and they awake him, and say unto him, Master, carest thou not
that we perish?

41:004:039 And he arose, and rebuked the wind, and said unto the sea,
Peace, be still. And the wind ceased, and there was a great

41:004:040 And he said unto them, Why are ye so fearful? how is it that
ye have no faith?

41:004:041 And they feared exceedingly, and said one to another, What
manner of man is this, that even the wind and the sea obey

41:005:001 And they came over unto the other side of the sea, into the
country of the Gadarenes.

41:005:002 And when he was come out of the ship, immediately there met
him out of the tombs a man with an unclean spirit,

41:005:003 Who had his dwelling among the tombs; and no man could bind
him, no, not with chains:

41:005:004 Because that he had been often bound with fetters and chains,
and the chains had been plucked asunder by him, and the
fetters broken in pieces: neither could any man tame him.

41:005:005 And always, night and day, he was in the mountains, and in the
tombs, crying, and cutting himself with stones.

41:005:006 But when he saw Jesus afar off, he ran and worshipped him,

41:005:007 And cried with a loud voice, and said, What have I to do with
thee, Jesus, thou Son of the most high God? I adjure thee by
God, that thou torment me not.

41:005:008 For he said unto him, Come out of the man, thou unclean

41:005:009 And he asked him, What is thy name? And he answered, saying,
My name is Legion: for we are many.

41:005:010 And he besought him much that he would not send them away out
of the country.

41:005:011 Now there was there nigh unto the mountains a great herd of
swine feeding.

41:005:012 And all the devils besought him, saying, Send us into the
swine, that we may enter into them.

41:005:013 And forthwith Jesus gave them leave. And the unclean spirits
went out, and entered into the swine: and the herd ran
violently down a steep place into the sea, (they were about
two thousand;) and were choked in the sea.

41:005:014 And they that fed the swine fled, and told it in the city, and
in the country. And they went out to see what it was that was

41:005:015 And they come to Jesus, and see him that was possessed with
the devil, and had the legion, sitting, and clothed, and in
his right mind: and they were afraid.

41:005:016 And they that saw it told them how it befell to him that was
possessed with the devil, and also concerning the swine.

41:005:017 And they began to pray him to depart out of their coasts.

41:005:018 And when he was come into the ship, he that had been possessed
with the devil prayed him that he might be with him.

41:005:019 Howbeit Jesus suffered him not, but saith unto him, Go home to
thy friends, and tell them how great things the Lord hath done
for thee, and hath had compassion on thee.

41:005:020 And he departed, and began to publish in Decapolis how great
things Jesus had done for him: and all men did marvel.

41:005:021 And when Jesus was passed over again by ship unto the other
side, much people gathered unto him: and he was nigh unto the

41:005:022 And, behold, there cometh one of the rulers of the synagogue,
Jairus by name; and when he saw him, he fell at his feet,

41:005:023 And besought him greatly, saying, My little daughter lieth at
the point of death: I pray thee, come and lay thy hands on
her, that she may be healed; and she shall live.

41:005:024 And Jesus went with him; and much people followed him, and
thronged him.

41:005:025 And a certain woman, which had an issue of blood twelve years,

41:005:026 And had suffered many things of many physicians, and had spent
all that she had, and was nothing bettered, but rather grew

41:005:027 When she had heard of Jesus, came in the press behind, and
touched his garment.

41:005:028 For she said, If I may touch but his clothes, I shall be

41:005:029 And straightway the fountain of her blood was dried up; and
she felt in her body that she was healed of that plague.

41:005:030 And Jesus, immediately knowing in himself that virtue had gone
out of him, turned him about in the press, and said, Who
touched my clothes?

41:005:031 And his disciples said unto him, Thou seest the multitude
thronging thee, and sayest thou, Who touched me?

41:005:032 And he looked round about to see her that had done this thing.

41:005:033 But the woman fearing and trembling, knowing what was done in
her, came and fell down before him, and told him all the

41:005:034 And he said unto her, Daughter, thy faith hath made thee
whole; go in peace, and be whole of thy plague.

41:005:035 While he yet spake, there came from the ruler of the
synagogue's house certain which said, Thy daughter is dead:
why troublest thou the Master any further?

41:005:036 As soon as Jesus heard the word that was spoken, he saith unto
the ruler of the synagogue, Be not afraid, only believe.

41:005:037 And he suffered no man to follow him, save Peter, and James,
and John the brother of James.

41:005:038 And he cometh to the house of the ruler of the synagogue, and
seeth the tumult, and them that wept and wailed greatly.

41:005:039 And when he was come in, he saith unto them, Why make ye this
ado, and weep? the damsel is not dead, but sleepeth.

41:005:040 And they laughed him to scorn. But when he had put them all
out, he taketh the father and the mother of the damsel, and
them that were with him, and entereth in where the damsel was

41:005:041 And he took the damsel by the hand, and said unto her, Talitha
cumi; which is, being interpreted, Damsel, I say unto thee,

41:005:042 And straightway the damsel arose, and walked; for she was of
the age of twelve years. And they were astonished with a great

41:005:043 And he charged them straitly that no man should know it; and
commanded that something should be given her to eat.

41:006:001 And he went out from thence, and came into his own country;
and his disciples follow him.

41:006:002 And when the sabbath day was come, he began to teach in the
synagogue: and many hearing him were astonished, saying, From
whence hath this man these things? and what wisdom is this
which is given unto him, that even such mighty works are
wrought by his hands?

41:006:003 Is not this the carpenter, the son of Mary, the brother of
James, and Joses, and of Juda, and Simon? and are not his
sisters here with us? And they were offended at him.

41:006:004 But Jesus, said unto them, A prophet is not without honour,
but in his own country, and among his own kin, and in his own

41:006:005 And he could there do no mighty work, save that he laid his
hands upon a few sick folk, and healed them.

41:006:006 And he marvelled because of their unbelief. And he went round
about the villages, teaching.

41:006:007 And he called unto him the twelve, and began to send them
forth by two and two; and gave them power over unclean

41:006:008 And commanded them that they should take nothing for their
journey, save a staff only; no scrip, no bread, no money in
their purse:

41:006:009 But be shod with sandals; and not put on two coats.

41:006:010 And he said unto them, In what place soever ye enter into an
house, there abide till ye depart from that place.

41:006:011 And whosoever shall not receive you, nor hear you, when ye
depart thence, shake off the dust under your feet for a
testimony against them. Verily I say unto you, It shall be
more tolerable for Sodom and Gomorrha in the day of judgment,
than for that city.

41:006:012 And they went out, and preached that men should repent.

41:006:013 And they cast out many devils, and anointed with oil many that
were sick, and healed them.

41:006:014 And king Herod heard of him; (for his name was spread abroad:)
and he said, That John the Baptist was risen from the dead,
and therefore mighty works do shew forth themselves in him.

41:006:015 Others said, That it is Elias. And others said, That it is a
prophet, or as one of the prophets.

41:006:016 But when Herod heard thereof, he said, It is John, whom I
beheaded: he is risen from the dead.

41:006:017 For Herod himself had sent forth and laid hold upon John, and
bound him in prison for Herodias' sake, his brother Philip's
wife: for he had married her.

41:006:018 For John had said unto Herod, It is not lawful for thee to
have thy brother's wife.

41:006:019 Therefore Herodias had a quarrel against him, and would have
killed him; but she could not:

41:006:020 For Herod feared John, knowing that he was a just man and an
holy, and observed him; and when he heard him, he did many
things, and heard him gladly.

41:006:021 And when a convenient day was come, that Herod on his birthday
made a supper to his lords, high captains, and chief estates
of Galilee;

41:006:022 And when the daughter of the said Herodias came in, and
danced, and pleased Herod and them that sat with him, the king
said unto the damsel, Ask of me whatsoever thou wilt, and I
will give it thee.

41:006:023 And he sware unto her, Whatsoever thou shalt ask of me, I will
give it thee, unto the half of my kingdom.

41:006:024 And she went forth, and said unto her mother, What shall I
ask? And she said, The head of John the Baptist.

41:006:025 And she came in straightway with haste unto the king, and
asked, saying, I will that thou give me by and by in a charger
the head of John the Baptist.

41:006:026 And the king was exceeding sorry; yet for his oath's sake, and
for their sakes which sat with him, he would not reject her.

41:006:027 And immediately the king sent an executioner, and commanded
his head to be brought: and he went and beheaded him in the

41:006:028 And brought his head in a charger, and gave it to the damsel:
and the damsel gave it to her mother.

41:006:029 And when his disciples heard of it, they came and took up his
corpse, and laid it in a tomb.

41:006:030 And the apostles gathered themselves together unto Jesus, and
told him all things, both what they had done, and what they
had taught.

41:006:031 And he said unto them, Come ye yourselves apart into a desert
place, and rest a while: for there were many coming and going,
and they had no leisure so much as to eat.

41:006:032 And they departed into a desert place by ship privately.

41:006:033 And the people saw them departing, and many knew him, and ran
afoot thither out of all cities, and outwent them, and came
together unto him.

41:006:034 And Jesus, when he came out, saw much people, and was moved
with compassion toward them, because they were as sheep not
having a shepherd: and he began to teach them many things.

41:006:035 And when the day was now far spent, his disciples came unto
him, and said, This is a desert place, and now the time is far

41:006:036 Send them away, that they may go into the country round about,
and into the villages, and buy themselves bread: for they have
nothing to eat.

41:006:037 He answered and said unto them, Give ye them to eat. And they
say unto him, Shall we go and buy two hundred pennyworth of
bread, and give them to eat?

41:006:038 He saith unto them, How many loaves have ye? go and see. And
when they knew, they say, Five, and two fishes.

41:006:039 And he commanded them to make all sit down by companies upon
the green grass.

41:006:040 And they sat down in ranks, by hundreds, and by fifties.

41:006:041 And when he had taken the five loaves and the two fishes, he
looked up to heaven, and blessed, and brake the loaves, and
gave them to his disciples to set before them; and the two
fishes divided he among them all.

41:006:042 And they did all eat, and were filled.

41:006:043 And they took up twelve baskets full of the fragments, and of
the fishes.

41:006:044 And they that did eat of the loaves were about five thousand

41:006:045 And straightway he constrained his disciples to get into the
ship, and to go to the other side before unto Bethsaida, while
he sent away the people.

41:006:046 And when he had sent them away, he departed into a mountain to

41:006:047 And when even was come, the ship was in the midst of the sea,
and he alone on the land.

41:006:048 And he saw them toiling in rowing; for the wind was contrary
unto them: and about the fourth watch of the night he cometh
unto them, walking upon the sea, and would have passed by

41:006:049 But when they saw him walking upon the sea, they supposed it
had been a spirit, and cried out:

41:006:050 For they all saw him, and were troubled. And immediately he
talked with them, and saith unto them, Be of good cheer: it is
I; be not afraid.

41:006:051 And he went up unto them into the ship; and the wind ceased:
and they were sore amazed in themselves beyond measure, and

41:006:052 For they considered not the miracle of the loaves: for their
heart was hardened.

41:006:053 And when they had passed over, they came into the land of
Gennesaret, and drew to the shore.

41:006:054 And when they were come out of the ship, straightway they knew

41:006:055 And ran through that whole region round about, and began to
carry about in beds those that were sick, where they heard he

41:006:056 And whithersoever he entered, into villages, or cities, or
country, they laid the sick in the streets, and besought him
that they might touch if it were but the border of his
garment: and as many as touched him were made whole.

41:007:001 Then came together unto him the Pharisees, and certain of the
scribes, which came from Jerusalem.

41:007:002 And when they saw some of his disciples eat bread with
defiled, that is to say, with unwashen, hands, they found

41:007:003 For the Pharisees, and all the Jews, except they wash their
hands oft, eat not, holding the tradition of the elders.

41:007:004 And when they come from the market, except they wash, they eat
not. And many other things there be, which they have received
to hold, as the washing of cups, and pots, brasen vessels, and
of tables.

41:007:005 Then the Pharisees and scribes asked him, Why walk not thy
disciples according to the tradition of the elders, but eat
bread with unwashen hands?

41:007:006 He answered and said unto them, Well hath Esaias prophesied of
you hypocrites, as it is written, This people honoureth me
with their lips, but their heart is far from me.

41:007:007 Howbeit in vain do they worship me, teaching for doctrines the
commandments of men.

41:007:008 For laying aside the commandment of God, ye hold the tradition
of men, as the washing of pots and cups: and many other such
like things ye do.

41:007:009 And he said unto them, Full well ye reject the commandment of
God, that ye may keep your own tradition.

41:007:010 For Moses said, Honour thy father and thy mother; and, Whoso
curseth father or mother, let him die the death:

41:007:011 But ye say, If a man shall say to his father or mother, It is
Corban, that is to say, a gift, by whatsoever thou mightest be
profited by me; he shall be free.

41:007:012 And ye suffer him no more to do ought for his father or his

41:007:013 Making the word of God of none effect through your tradition,
which ye have delivered: and many such like things do ye.

41:007:014 And when he had called all the people unto him, he said unto
them, Hearken unto me every one of you, and understand:

41:007:015 There is nothing from without a man, that entering into him
can defile him: but the things which come out of him, those
are they that defile the man.

41:007:016 If any man have ears to hear, let him hear.

41:007:017 And when he was entered into the house from the people, his
disciples asked him concerning the parable.

41:007:018 And he saith unto them, Are ye so without understanding also?
Do ye not perceive, that whatsoever thing from without
entereth into the man, it cannot defile him;

41:007:019 Because it entereth not into his heart, but into the belly,
and goeth out into the draught, purging all meats?

41:007:020 And he said, That which cometh out of the man, that defileth
the man.

41:007:021 For from within, out of the heart of men, proceed evil
thoughts, adulteries, fornications, murders,

41:007:022 Thefts, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, lasciviousness, an
evil eye, blasphemy, pride, foolishness:

41:007:023 All these evil things come from within, and defile the man.

41:007:024 And from thence he arose, and went into the borders of Tyre
and Sidon, and entered into an house, and would have no man
know it: but he could not be hid.

41:007:025 For a certain woman, whose young daughter had an unclean
spirit, heard of him, and came and fell at his feet:

41:007:026 The woman was a Greek, a Syrophenician by nation; and she
besought him that he would cast forth the devil out of her

41:007:027 But Jesus said unto her, Let the children first be filled: for
it is not meet to take the children's bread, and to cast it
unto the dogs.

41:007:028 And she answered and said unto him, Yes, Lord: yet the dogs
under the table eat of the children's crumbs.

41:007:029 And he said unto her, For this saying go thy way; the devil is
gone out of thy daughter.

41:007:030 And when she was come to her house, she found the devil gone
out, and her daughter laid upon the bed.

41:007:031 And again, departing from the coasts of Tyre and Sidon, he
came unto the sea of Galilee, through the midst of the coasts
of Decapolis.

41:007:032 And they bring unto him one that was deaf, and had an
impediment in his speech; and they beseech him to put his hand
upon him.

41:007:033 And he took him aside from the multitude, and put his fingers
into his ears, and he spit, and touched his tongue;

41:007:034 And looking up to heaven, he sighed, and saith unto him,
Ephphatha, that is, Be opened.

41:007:035 And straightway his ears were opened, and the string of his
tongue was loosed, and he spake plain.

41:007:036 And he charged them that they should tell no man: but the more
he charged them, so much the more a great deal they published

41:007:037 And were beyond measure astonished, saying, He hath done all
things well: he maketh both the deaf to hear, and the dumb to

41:008:001 In those days the multitude being very great, and having
nothing to eat, Jesus called his disciples unto him, and saith
unto them,

41:008:002 I have compassion on the multitude, because they have now been
with me three days, and have nothing to eat:

41:008:003 And if I send them away fasting to their own houses, they will
faint by the way: for divers of them came from far.

41:008:004 And his disciples answered him, From whence can a man satisfy
these men with bread here in the wilderness?

41:008:005 And he asked them, How many loaves have ye? And they said,

41:008:006 And he commanded the people to sit down on the ground: and he
took the seven loaves, and gave thanks, and brake, and gave to
his disciples to set before them; and they did set them before
the people.

41:008:007 And they had a few small fishes: and he blessed, and commanded
to set them also before them.

41:008:008 So they did eat, and were filled: and they took up of the
broken meat that was left seven baskets.

41:008:009 And they that had eaten were about four thousand: and he sent
them away.

41:008:010 And straightway he entered into a ship with his disciples, and
came into the parts of Dalmanutha.

41:008:011 And the Pharisees came forth, and began to question with him,
seeking of him a sign from heaven, tempting him.

41:008:012 And he sighed deeply in his spirit, and saith, Why doth this
generation seek after a sign? verily I say unto you, There
shall no sign be given unto this generation.

41:008:013 And he left them, and entering into the ship again departed to
the other side.

41:008:014 Now the disciples had forgotten to take bread, neither had
they in the ship with them more than one loaf.

41:008:015 And he charged them, saying, Take heed, beware of the leaven
of the Pharisees, and of the leaven of Herod.

41:008:016 And they reasoned among themselves, saying, It is because we
have no bread.

41:008:017 And when Jesus knew it, he saith unto them, Why reason ye,
because ye have no bread? perceive ye not yet, neither
understand? have ye your heart yet hardened?

41:008:018 Having eyes, see ye not? and having ears, hear ye not? and do
ye not remember?

41:008:019 When I brake the five loaves among five thousand, how many
baskets full of fragments took ye up? They say unto him,

41:008:020 And when the seven among four thousand, how many baskets full
of fragments took ye up? And they said, Seven.

41:008:021 And he said unto them, How is it that ye do not understand?

41:008:022 And he cometh to Bethsaida; and they bring a blind man unto
him, and besought him to touch him.

41:008:023 And he took the blind man by the hand, and led him out of the
town; and when he had spit on his eyes, and put his hands upon
him, he asked him if he saw ought.

41:008:024 And he looked up, and said, I see men as trees, walking.

41:008:025 After that he put his hands again upon his eyes, and made him
look up: and he was restored, and saw every man clearly.

41:008:026 And he sent him away to his house, saying, Neither go into the
town, nor tell it to any in the town.

41:008:027 And Jesus went out, and his disciples, into the towns of
Caesarea Philippi: and by the way he asked his disciples,
saying unto them, Whom do men say that I am?

41:008:028 And they answered, John the Baptist; but some say, Elias; and
others, One of the prophets.

41:008:029 And he saith unto them, But whom say ye that I am? And Peter
answereth and saith unto him, Thou art the Christ.

41:008:030 And he charged them that they should tell no man of him.

41:008:031 And he began to teach them, that the Son of man must suffer
many things, and be rejected of the elders, and of the chief
priests, and scribes, and be killed, and after three days rise

41:008:032 And he spake that saying openly. And Peter took him, and began
to rebuke him.

41:008:033 But when he had turned about and looked on his disciples, he
rebuked Peter, saying, Get thee behind me, Satan: for thou
savourest not the things that be of God, but the things that
be of men.

41:008:034 And when he had called the people unto him with his disciples
also, he said unto them, Whosoever will come after me, let him
deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me.

41:008:035 For whosoever will save his life shall lose it; but whosoever
shall lose his life for my sake and the gospel's, the same
shall save it.

41:008:036 For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole
world, and lose his own soul?

41:008:037 Or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?

41:008:038 Whosoever therefore shall be ashamed of me and of my words in
this adulterous and sinful generation; of him also shall the
Son of man be ashamed, when he cometh in the glory of his
Father with the holy angels.

41:009:001 And he said unto them, Verily I say unto you, That there be
some of them that stand here, which shall not taste of death,
till they have seen the kingdom of God come with power.

41:009:002 And after six days Jesus taketh with him Peter, and James, and
John, and leadeth them up into an high mountain apart by
themselves: and he was transfigured before them.

41:009:003 And his raiment became shining, exceeding white as snow; so as
no fuller on earth can white them.

41:009:004 And there appeared unto them Elias with Moses: and they were
talking with Jesus.

41:009:005 And Peter answered and said to Jesus, Master, it is good for
us to be here: and let us make three tabernacles; one for
thee, and one for Moses, and one for Elias.

41:009:006 For he wist not what to say; for they were sore afraid.

41:009:007 And there was a cloud that overshadowed them: and a voice came
out of the cloud, saying, This is my beloved Son: hear him.

41:009:008 And suddenly, when they had looked round about, they saw no
man any more, save Jesus only with themselves.

41:009:009 And as they came down from the mountain, he charged them that
they should tell no man what things they had seen, till the
Son of man were risen from the dead.

41:009:010 And they kept that saying with themselves, questioning one
with another what the rising from the dead should mean.

41:009:011 And they asked him, saying, Why say the scribes that Elias
must first come?

41:009:012 And he answered and told them, Elias verily cometh first, and
restoreth all things; and how it is written of the Son of man,
that he must suffer many things, and be set at nought.

41:009:013 But I say unto you, That Elias is indeed come, and they have
done unto him whatsoever they listed, as it is written of him.

41:009:014 And when he came to his disciples, he saw a great multitude
about them, and the scribes questioning with them.

41:009:015 And straightway all the people, when they beheld him, were
greatly amazed, and running to him saluted him.

41:009:016 And he asked the scribes, What question ye with them?

41:009:017 And one of the multitude answered and said, Master, I have
brought unto thee my son, which hath a dumb spirit;

41:009:018 And wheresoever he taketh him, he teareth him: and he foameth,
and gnasheth with his teeth, and pineth away: and I spake to
thy disciples that they should cast him out; and they could

41:009:019 He answereth him, and saith, O faithless generation, how long
shall I be with you? how long shall I suffer you? bring him
unto me.

41:009:020 And they brought him unto him: and when he saw him,
straightway the spirit tare him; and he fell on the ground,
and wallowed foaming.

41:009:021 And he asked his father, How long is it ago since this came
unto him? And he said, Of a child.

41:009:022 And ofttimes it hath cast him into the fire, and into the
waters, to destroy him: but if thou canst do any thing, have
compassion on us, and help us.

41:009:023 Jesus said unto him, If thou canst believe, all things are
possible to him that believeth.

41:009:024 And straightway the father of the child cried out, and said
with tears, Lord, I believe; help thou mine unbelief.

41:009:025 When Jesus saw that the people came running together, he
rebuked the foul spirit, saying unto him, Thou dumb and deaf
spirit, I charge thee, come out of him, and enter no more into

41:009:026 And the spirit cried, and rent him sore, and came out of him:
and he was as one dead; insomuch that many said, He is dead.

41:009:027 But Jesus took him by the hand, and lifted him up; and he

41:009:028 And when he was come into the house, his disciples asked him
privately, Why could not we cast him out?

41:009:029 And he said unto them, This kind can come forth by nothing,
but by prayer and fasting.

41:009:030 And they departed thence, and passed through Galilee; and he
would not that any man should know it.

41:009:031 For he taught his disciples, and said unto them, The Son of
man is delivered into the hands of men, and they shall kill
him; and after that he is killed, he shall rise the third day.

41:009:032 But they understood not that saying, and were afraid to ask

41:009:033 And he came to Capernaum: and being in the house he asked
them, What was it that ye disputed among yourselves by the

41:009:034 But they held their peace: for by the way they had disputed
among themselves, who should be the greatest.

41:009:035 And he sat down, and called the twelve, and saith unto them,
If any man desire to be first, the same shall be last of all,
and servant of all.

41:009:036 And he took a child, and set him in the midst of them: and
when he had taken him in his arms, he said unto them,

41:009:037 Whosoever shall receive one of such children in my name,
receiveth me: and whosoever shall receive me, receiveth not
me, but him that sent me.

41:009:038 And John answered him, saying, Master, we saw one casting out
devils in thy name, and he followeth not us: and we forbad
him, because he followeth not us.

41:009:039 But Jesus said, Forbid him not: for there is no man which
shall do a miracle in my name, that can lightly speak evil of

41:009:040 For he that is not against us is on our part.

41:009:041 For whosoever shall give you a cup of water to drink in my
name, because ye belong to Christ, verily I say unto you, he
shall not lose his reward.

41:009:042 And whosoever shall offend one of these little ones that
believe in me, it is better for him that a millstone were
hanged about his neck, and he were cast into the sea.

41:009:043 And if thy hand offend thee, cut it off: it is better for thee
to enter into life maimed, than having two hands to go into
hell, into the fire that never shall be quenched:

41:009:044 Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.

41:009:045 And if thy foot offend thee, cut it off: it is better for thee
to enter halt into life, than having two feet to be cast into
hell, into the fire that never shall be quenched:

41:009:046 Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.

41:009:047 And if thine eye offend thee, pluck it out: it is better for
thee to enter into the kingdom of God with one eye, than
having two eyes to be cast into hell fire:

41:009:048 Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.

41:009:049 For every one shall be salted with fire, and every sacrifice
shall be salted with salt.

41:009:050 Salt is good: but if the salt have lost his saltness,
wherewith will ye season it? Have salt in yourselves, and have
peace one with another.

41:010:001 And he arose from thence, and cometh into the coasts of Judaea
by the farther side of Jordan: and the people resort unto him
again; and, as he was wont, he taught them again.

41:010:002 And the Pharisees came to him, and asked him, Is it lawful for
a man to put away his wife? tempting him.

41:010:003 And he answered and said unto them, What did Moses command

41:010:004 And they said, Moses suffered to write a bill of divorcement,
and to put her away.

41:010:005 And Jesus answered and said unto them, For the hardness of
your heart he wrote you this precept.

41:010:006 But from the beginning of the creation God made them male and

41:010:007 For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and
cleave to his wife;

41:010:008 And they twain shall be one flesh: so then they are no more
twain, but one flesh.

41:010:009 What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put

41:010:010 And in the house his disciples asked him again of the same

41:010:011 And he saith unto them, Whosoever shall put away his wife, and
marry another, committeth adultery against her.

41:010:012 And if a woman shall put away her husband, and be married to
another, she committeth adultery.

41:010:013 And they brought young children to him, that he should touch
them: and his disciples rebuked those that brought them.

41:010:014 But when Jesus saw it, he was much displeased, and said unto
them, Suffer the little children to come unto me, and forbid
them not: for of such is the kingdom of God.

41:010:015 Verily I say unto you, Whosoever shall not receive the kingdom
of God as a little child, he shall not enter therein.

41:010:016 And he took them up in his arms, put his hands upon them, and
blessed them.

41:010:017 And when he was gone forth into the way, there came one
running, and kneeled to him, and asked him, Good Master, what
shall I do that I may inherit eternal life?

41:010:018 And Jesus said unto him, Why callest thou me good? there is
none good but one, that is, God.

41:010:019 Thou knowest the commandments, Do not commit adultery, Do not
kill, Do not steal, Do not bear false witness, Defraud not,
Honour thy father and mother.

41:010:020 And he answered and said unto him, Master, all these have I
observed from my youth.

41:010:021 Then Jesus beholding him loved him, and said unto him, One
thing thou lackest: go thy way, sell whatsoever thou hast, and
give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and
come, take up the cross, and follow me.

41:010:022 And he was sad at that saying, and went away grieved: for he
had great possessions.

41:010:023 And Jesus looked round about, and saith unto his disciples,
How hardly shall they that have riches enter into the kingdom
of God!

41:010:024 And the disciples were astonished at his words. But Jesus
answereth again, and saith unto them, Children, how hard is it
for them that trust in riches to enter into the kingdom of

41:010:025 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.

41:010:026 And they were astonished out of measure, saying among
themselves, Who then can be saved?

41:010:027 And Jesus looking upon them saith, With men it is impossible,
but not with God: for with God all things are possible.

41:010:028 Then Peter began to say unto him, Lo, we have left all, and
have followed thee.

41:010:029 And Jesus answered and said, Verily I say unto you, There is
no man that hath left house, or brethren, or sisters, or
father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for my
sake, and the gospel's,

41:010:030 But he shall receive an hundredfold now in this time, houses,
and brethren, and sisters, and mothers, and children, and
lands, with persecutions; and in the world to come eternal

41:010:031 But many that are first shall be last; and the last first.

41:010:032 And they were in the way going up to Jerusalem; and Jesus went
before them: and they were amazed; and as they followed, they
were afraid. And he took again the twelve, and began to tell
them what things should happen unto him,

41:010:033 Saying, Behold, we go up to Jerusalem; and the Son of man
shall be delivered unto the chief priests, and unto the
scribes; and they shall condemn him to death, and shall
deliver him to the Gentiles:

41:010:034 And they shall mock him, and shall scourge him, and shall spit
upon him, and shall kill him: and the third day he shall rise

41:010:035 And James and John, the sons of Zebedee, come unto him,
saying, Master, we would that thou shouldest do for us
whatsoever we shall desire.

41:010:036 And he said unto them, What would ye that I should do for you?

41:010:037 They said unto him, Grant unto us that we may sit, one on thy
right hand, and the other on thy left hand, in thy glory.

41:010:038 But Jesus said unto them, Ye know not what ye ask: can ye
drink of the cup that I drink of? and be baptized with the
baptism that I am baptized with?

41:010:039 And they said unto him, We can. And Jesus said unto them, Ye
shall indeed drink of the cup that I drink of; and with the
baptism that I am baptized withal shall ye be baptized:

41:010:040 But to sit on my right hand and on my left hand is not mine to
give; but it shall be given to them for whom it is prepared.

41:010:041 And when the ten heard it, they began to be much displeased
with James and John.

41:010:042 But Jesus called them to him, and saith unto them, Ye know
that they which are accounted to rule over the Gentiles
exercise lordship over them; and their great ones exercise
authority upon them.

41:010:043 But so shall it not be among you: but whosoever will be great
among you, shall be your minister:

41:010:044 And whosoever of you will be the chiefest, shall be servant of

41:010:045 For even the Son of man came not to be ministered unto, but to
minister, and to give his life a ransom for many.

41:010:046 And they came to Jericho: and as he went out of Jericho with
his disciples and a great number of people, blind Bartimaeus,
the son of Timaeus, sat by the highway side begging.

41:010:047 And when he heard that it was Jesus of Nazareth, he began to
cry out, and say, Jesus, thou son of David, have mercy on me.

41:010:048 And many charged him that he should hold his peace: but he
cried the more a great deal, Thou son of David, have mercy on

41:010:049 And Jesus stood still, and commanded him to be called. And
they call the blind man, saying unto him, Be of good comfort,
rise; he calleth thee.

41:010:050 And he, casting away his garment, rose, and came to Jesus.

41:010:051 And Jesus answered and said unto him, What wilt thou that I
should do unto thee? The blind man said unto him, Lord, that I
might receive my sight.

41:010:052 And Jesus said unto him, Go thy way; thy faith hath made thee
whole. And immediately he received his sight, and followed
Jesus in the way.

41:011:001 And when they came nigh to Jerusalem, unto Bethphage and
Bethany, at the mount of Olives, he sendeth forth two of his

41:011:002 And saith unto them, Go your way into the village over against
you: and as soon as ye be entered into it, ye shall find a
colt tied, whereon never man sat; loose him, and bring him.

41:011:003 And if any man say unto you, Why do ye this? say ye that the
Lord hath need of him; and straightway he will send him

41:011:004 And they went their way, and found the colt tied by the door
without in a place where two ways met; and they loose him.

41:011:005 And certain of them that stood there said unto them, What do
ye, loosing the colt?

41:011:006 And they said unto them even as Jesus had commanded: and they
let them go.

41:011:007 And they brought the colt to Jesus, and cast their garments on
him; and he sat upon him.

41:011:008 And many spread their garments in the way: and others cut down
branches off the trees, and strawed them in the way.

41:011:009 And they that went before, and they that followed, cried,
saying, Hosanna; Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the

41:011:010 Blessed be the kingdom of our father David, that cometh in the
name of the Lord: Hosanna in the highest.

41:011:011 And Jesus entered into Jerusalem, and into the temple: and
when he had looked round about upon all things, and now the
eventide was come, he went out unto Bethany with the twelve.

41:011:012 And on the morrow, when they were come from Bethany, he was

41:011:013 And seeing a fig tree afar off having leaves, he came, if
haply he might find any thing thereon: and when he came to it,
he found nothing but leaves; for the time of figs was not yet.

41:011:014 And Jesus answered and said unto it, No man eat fruit of thee
hereafter for ever. And his disciples heard it.

41:011:015 And they come to Jerusalem: and Jesus went into the temple,
and began to cast out them that sold and bought in the temple,
and overthrew the tables of the moneychangers, and the seats
of them that sold doves;

41:011:016 And would not suffer that any man should carry any vessel
through the temple.

41:011:017 And he taught, saying unto them, Is it not written, My house
shall be called of all nations the house of prayer? but ye
have made it a den of thieves.

41:011:018 And the scribes and chief priests heard it, and sought how
they might destroy him: for they feared him, because all the
people was astonished at his doctrine.

41:011:019 And when even was come, he went out of the city.

41:011:020 And in the morning, as they passed by, they saw the fig tree
dried up from the roots.

41:011:021 And Peter calling to remembrance saith unto him, Master,
behold, the fig tree which thou cursedst is withered away.

41:011:022 And Jesus answering saith unto them, Have faith in God.

41:011:023 For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this
mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and
shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those
things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have
whatsoever he saith.

41:011:024 Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when
ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.

41:011:031 And they reasoned with themselves, saying, If we shall say,
From heaven; he will say, Why then did ye not believe him?

41:011:032 But if we shall say, Of men; they feared the people: for all

41:011:033 And they answered and said unto Jesus, We cannot tell. And

authority I do these things.

41:012:001 And he began to speak unto them by parables. A certain man
planted a vineyard, and set an hedge about it, and digged a
