neither any thing hid, that shall not be known and come

42:008:018 Take heed therefore how ye hear: for whosoever hath, to him
shall be given; and whosoever hath not, from him shall be
taken even that which he seemeth to have.

42:008:019 Then came to him his mother and his brethren, and could not
come at him for the press.

42:008:020 And it was told him by certain which said, Thy mother and thy
brethren stand without, desiring to see thee.

42:008:021 And he answered and said unto them, My mother and my brethren
are these which hear the word of God, and do it.

42:008:022 Now it came to pass on a certain day, that he went into a ship
with his disciples: and he said unto them, Let us go over unto
the other side of the lake. And they launched forth.

42:008:023 But as they sailed he fell asleep: and there came down a storm
of wind on the lake; and they were filled with water, and were
in jeopardy.

42:008:024 And they came to him, and awoke him, saying, Master, master,
we perish. Then he arose, and rebuked the wind and the raging
of the water: and they ceased, and there was a calm.

42:008:025 And he said unto them, Where is your faith? And they being
afraid wondered, saying one to another, What manner of man is
this! for he commandeth even the winds and water, and they
obey him.

42:008:026 And they arrived at the country of the Gadarenes, which is
over against Galilee.

42:008:027 And when he went forth to land, there met him out of the city
a certain man, which had devils long time, and ware no
clothes, neither abode in any house, but in the tombs.

42:008:028 When he saw Jesus, he cried out, and fell down before him, and
with a loud voice said, What have I to do with thee, Jesus,
thou Son of God most high? I beseech thee, torment me not.

42:008:029 (For he had commanded the unclean spirit to come out of the
man. For oftentimes it had caught him: and he was kept bound
with chains and in fetters; and he brake the bands, and was
driven of the devil into the wilderness.)

42:008:030 And Jesus asked him, saying, What is thy name? And he said,
Legion: because many devils were entered into him.

42:008:031 And they besought him that he would not command them to go out
into the deep.

42:008:032 And there was there an herd of many swine feeding on the
mountain: and they besought him that he would suffer them to
enter into them. And he suffered them.

42:008:033 Then went the devils out of the man, and entered into the
swine: and the herd ran violently down a steep place into the
lake, and were choked.

42:008:034 When they that fed them saw what was done, they fled, and went
and told it in the city and in the country.

42:008:035 Then they went out to see what was done; and came to Jesus,
and found the man, out of whom the devils were departed,
sitting at the feet of Jesus, clothed, and in his right mind:
and they were afraid.

42:008:036 They also which saw it told them by what means he that was
possessed of the devils was healed.

42:008:037 Then the whole multitude of the country of the Gadarenes round
about besought him to depart from them; for they were taken
with great fear: and he went up into the ship, and returned
back again.

42:008:038 Now the man out of whom the devils were departed besought him
that he might be with him: but Jesus sent him away, saying,

42:008:039 Return to thine own house, and shew how great things God hath
done unto thee. And he went his way, and published throughout
the whole city how great things Jesus had done unto him.

42:008:040 And it came to pass, that, when Jesus was returned, the people
gladly received him: for they were all waiting for him.

42:008:041 And, behold, there came a man named Jairus, and he was a ruler
of the synagogue: and he fell down at Jesus' feet, and
besought him that he would come into his house:

42:008:042 For he had one only daughter, about twelve years of age, and
she lay a dying. But as he went the people thronged him.

42:008:043 And a woman having an issue of blood twelve years, which had
spent all her living upon physicians, neither could be healed
of any,

42:008:044 Came behind him, and touched the border of his garment: and
immediately her issue of blood stanched.

42:008:045 And Jesus said, Who touched me? When all denied, Peter and
they that were with him said, Master, the multitude throng
thee and press thee, and sayest thou, Who touched me?

42:008:046 And Jesus said, Somebody hath touched me: for I perceive that
virtue is gone out of me.

42:008:047 And when the woman saw that she was not hid, she came
trembling, and falling down before him, she declared unto him
before all the people for what cause she had touched him, and
how she was healed immediately.

42:008:048 And he said unto her, Daughter, be of good comfort: thy faith
hath made thee whole; go in peace.

42:008:049 While he yet spake, there cometh one from the ruler of the
synagogue's house, saying to him, Thy daughter is dead;
trouble not the Master.

42:008:050 But when Jesus heard it, he answered him, saying, Fear not:
believe only, and she shall be made whole.

42:008:051 And when he came into the house, he suffered no man to go in,
save Peter, and James, and John, and the father and the mother
of the maiden.

42:008:052 And all wept, and bewailed her: but he said, Weep not; she is
not dead, but sleepeth.

42:008:053 And they laughed him to scorn, knowing that she was dead.

42:008:054 And he put them all out, and took her by the hand, and called,
saying, Maid, arise.

42:008:055 And her spirit came again, and she arose straightway: and he
commanded to give her meat.

42:008:056 And her parents were astonished: but he charged them that they
should tell no man what was done.

42:009:001 Then he called his twelve disciples together, and gave them
power and authority over all devils, and to cure diseases.

42:009:002 And he sent them to preach the kingdom of God, and to heal the

42:009:003 And he said unto them, Take nothing for your journey, neither
staves, nor scrip, neither bread, neither money; neither have
two coats apiece.

42:009:004 And whatsoever house ye enter into, there abide, and thence

42:009:005 And whosoever will not receive you, when ye go out of that
city, shake off the very dust from your feet for a testimony
against them.

42:009:006 And they departed, and went through the towns, preaching the
gospel, and healing every where.

42:009:007 Now Herod the tetrarch heard of all that was done by him: and
he was perplexed, because that it was said of some, that John
was risen from the dead;

42:009:008 And of some, that Elias had appeared; and of others, that one
of the old prophets was risen again.

42:009:009 And Herod said, John have I beheaded: but who is this, of whom
I hear such things? And he desired to see him.

42:009:010 And the apostles, when they were returned, told him all that
they had done. And he took them, and went aside privately into
a desert place belonging to the city called Bethsaida.

42:009:011 And the people, when they knew it, followed him: and he
received them, and spake unto them of the kingdom of God, and
healed them that had need of healing.

42:009:012 And when the day began to wear away, then came the twelve, and
said unto him, Send the multitude away, that they may go into
the towns and country round about, and lodge, and get
victuals: for we are here in a desert place.

42:009:013 But he said unto them, Give ye them to eat. And they said, We
have no more but five loaves and two fishes; except we should
go and buy meat for all this people.

42:009:014 For they were about five thousand men. And he said to his
disciples, Make them sit down by fifties in a company.

42:009:015 And they did so, and made them all sit down.

42:009:016 Then he took the five loaves and the two fishes, and looking
up to heaven, he blessed them, and brake, and gave to the
disciples to set before the multitude.

42:009:017 And they did eat, and were all filled: and there was taken up
of fragments that remained to them twelve baskets.

42:009:018 And it came to pass, as he was alone praying, his disciples
were with him: and he asked them, saying, Whom say the people
that I am?

42:009:019 They answering said, John the Baptist; but some say, Elias;
and others say, that one of the old prophets is risen again.

42:009:020 He said unto them, But whom say ye that I am? Peter answering
said, The Christ of God.

42:009:021 And he straitly charged them, and commanded them to tell no
man that thing;

42:009:022 Saying, The Son of man must suffer many things, and be
rejected of the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be
slain, and be raised the third day.

42:009:023 And he said to them all, If any man will come after me, let
him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me.

42:009:024 For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: but whosoever
will lose his life for my sake, the same shall save it.

42:009:025 For what is a man advantaged, if he gain the whole world, and
lose himself, or be cast away?

42:009:026 For whosoever shall be ashamed of me and of my words, of him
shall the Son of man be ashamed, when he shall come in his own
glory, and in his Father's, and of the holy angels.

42:009:027 But I tell you of a truth, there be some standing here, which
shall not taste of death, till they see the kingdom of God.

42:009:028 And it came to pass about an eight days after these sayings,
he took Peter and John and James, and went up into a mountain
to pray.

42:009:029 And as he prayed, the fashion of his countenance was altered,
and his raiment was white and glistering.

42:009:030 And, behold, there talked with him two men, which were Moses
and Elias:

42:009:031 Who appeared in glory, and spake of his decease which he
should accomplish at Jerusalem.

42:009:032 But Peter and they that were with him were heavy with sleep:
and when they were awake, they saw his glory, and the two men
that stood with him.

42:009:033 And it came to pass, as they departed from him, Peter said
unto 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: not knowing what he said.

42:009:034 While he thus spake, there came a cloud, and overshadowed
them: and they feared as they entered into the cloud.

42:009:035 And there came a voice out of the cloud, saying, This is my
beloved Son: hear him.

42:009:036 And when the voice was past, Jesus was found alone. And they
kept it close, and told no man in those days any of those
things which they had seen.

42:009:037 And it came to pass, that on the next day, when they were come
down from the hill, much people met him.

42:009:038 And, behold, a man of the company cried out, saying, Master, I
beseech thee, look upon my son: for he is mine only child.

42:009:039 And, lo, a spirit taketh him, and he suddenly crieth out; and
it teareth him that he foameth again, and bruising him hardly
departeth from him.

42:009:040 And I besought thy disciples to cast him out; and they could

42:009:041 And Jesus answering said, O faithless and perverse generation,
how long shall I be with you, and suffer you? Bring thy son

42:009:042 And as he was yet a coming, the devil threw him down, and tare
him. And Jesus rebuked the unclean spirit, and healed the
child, and delivered him again to his father.

42:009:043 And they were all amazed at the mighty power of God. But while
they wondered every one at all things which Jesus did, he said
unto his disciples,

42:009:044 Let these sayings sink down into your ears: for the Son of man
shall be delivered into the hands of men.

42:009:045 But they understood not this saying, and it was hid from them,
that they perceived it not: and they feared to ask him of that

42:009:046 Then there arose a reasoning among them, which of them should
be greatest.

42:009:047 And Jesus, perceiving the thought of their heart, took a
child, and set him by him,

42:009:048 And said unto them, Whosoever shall receive this child in my
name receiveth me: and whosoever shall receive me receiveth
him that sent me: for he that is least among you all, the same
shall be great.

42:009:049 And John answered and said, Master, we saw one casting out
devils in thy name; and we forbad him, because he followeth
not with us.

42:009:050 And Jesus said unto him, Forbid him not: for he that is not
against us is for us.

42:009:051 And it came to pass, when the time was come that he should be
received up, he stedfastly set his face to go to Jerusalem,

42:009:052 And sent messengers before his face: and they went, and
entered into a village of the Samaritans, to make ready for

42:009:053 And they did not receive him, because his face was as though
he would go to Jerusalem.

42:009:054 And when his disciples James and John saw this, they said,
Lord, wilt thou that we command fire to come down from heaven,
and consume them, even as Elias did?

42:009:055 But he turned, and rebuked them, and said, Ye know not what
manner of spirit ye are of.

42:009:056 For the Son of man is not come to destroy men's lives, but to
save them. And they went to another village.

42:009:057 And it came to pass, that, as they went in the way, a certain
man said unto him, Lord, I will follow thee whithersoever thou

42:009:058 And Jesus said unto him, Foxes have holes, and birds of the
air have nests; but the Son of man hath not where to lay his

42:009:059 And he said unto another, Follow me. But he said, Lord, suffer
me first to go and bury my father.

42:009:060 Jesus said unto him, Let the dead bury their dead: but go thou
and preach the kingdom of God.

42:009:061 And another also said, Lord, I will follow thee; but let me
first go bid them farewell, which are at home at my house.

42:009:062 And Jesus said unto him, No man, having put his hand to the
plough, and looking back, is fit for the kingdom of God.

42:010:001 After these things the LORD appointed other seventy also, and
sent them two and two before his face into every city and
place, whither he himself would come.

42:010:002 Therefore said he unto them, The harvest truly is great, but
the labourers are few: pray ye therefore the Lord of the
harvest, that he would send forth labourers into his harvest.

42:010:003 Go your ways: behold, I send you forth as lambs among wolves.

42:010:004 Carry neither purse, nor scrip, nor shoes: and salute no man
by the way.

42:010:005 And into whatsoever house ye enter, first say, Peace be to
this house.

42:010:006 And if the son of peace be there, your peace shall rest upon
it: if not, it shall turn to you again.

42:010:007 And in the same house remain, eating and drinking such things
as they give: for the labourer is worthy of his hire. Go not
from house to house.

42:010:008 And into whatsoever city ye enter, and they receive you, eat
such things as are set before you:

42:010:009 And heal the sick that are therein, and say unto them, The
kingdom of God is come nigh unto you.

42:010:010 But into whatsoever city ye enter, and they receive you not,
go your ways out into the streets of the same, and say,

42:010:011 Even the very dust of your city, which cleaveth on us, we do
wipe off against you: notwithstanding be ye sure of this, that
the kingdom of God is come nigh unto you.

42:010:012 But I say unto you, that it shall be more tolerable in that
day for Sodom, than for that city.

42:010:013 Woe unto thee, Chorazin! woe unto thee, Bethsaida! for if the
mighty works had been done in Tyre and Sidon, which have been
done in you, they had a great while ago repented, sitting in
sackcloth and ashes.

42:010:014 But it shall be more tolerable for Tyre and Sidon at the
judgment, than for you.

42:010:015 And thou, Capernaum, which art exalted to heaven, shalt be
thrust down to hell.

42:010:016 He that heareth you heareth me; and he that despiseth you
despiseth me; and he that despiseth me despiseth him that sent

42:010:017 And the seventy returned again with joy, saying, Lord, even
the devils are subject unto us through thy name.

42:010:018 And he said unto them, I beheld Satan as lightning fall from

42:010:019 Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and
scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing
shall by any means hurt you.

42:010:020 Notwithstanding in this rejoice not, that the spirits are
subject unto you; but rather rejoice, because your names are
written in heaven.

42:010:021 In that hour Jesus rejoiced in spirit, and said, I thank thee,
O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that 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.

42:010:022 All things are delivered to me of my Father: and no man
knoweth who the Son is, but the Father; and who the Father is,
but the Son, and he to whom the Son will reveal him.

42:010:023 And he turned him unto his disciples, and said privately,
Blessed are the eyes which see the things that ye see:

42:010:024 For I tell you, that many prophets and kings 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.

42:010:025 And, behold, a certain lawyer stood up, and tempted him,
saying, Master, what shall I do to inherit eternal life?

42:010:026 He said unto him, What is written in the law? how readest

42:010:027 And he answering said, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with
all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy
strength, and with all thy mind; and thy neighbour as thyself.

42:010:028 And he said unto him, Thou hast answered right: this do, and
thou shalt live.

42:010:029 But he, willing to justify himself, said unto Jesus, And who
is my neighbour?

42:010:030 And Jesus answering said, A certain man went down from
Jerusalem to Jericho, and fell among thieves, which stripped
him of his raiment, and wounded him, and departed, leaving him
half dead.

42:010:031 And by chance there came down a certain priest that way: and
when he saw him, he passed by on the other side.

42:010:032 And likewise a Levite, when he was at the place, came and
looked on him, and passed by on the other side.

42:010:033 But a certain Samaritan, as he journeyed, came where he was:
and when he saw him, he had compassion on him,

42:010:034 And went to him, and bound up his wounds, pouring in oil and
wine, and set him on his own beast, and brought him to an inn,
and took care of him.

42:010:035 And on the morrow when he departed, he took out two pence, and
gave them to the host, and said unto him, Take care of him;
and whatsoever thou spendest more, when I come again, I will
repay thee.

42:010:036 Which now of these three, thinkest thou, was neighbour unto
him that fell among the thieves?

42:010:037 And he said, He that shewed mercy on him. Then said Jesus unto
him, Go, and do thou likewise.

42:010:038 Now it came to pass, as they went, that he entered into a
certain village: and a certain woman named Martha received him
into her house.

42:010:039 And she had a sister called Mary, which also sat at Jesus'
feet, and heard his word.

42:010:040 But Martha was cumbered about much serving, and came to him,
and said, Lord, dost thou not care that my sister hath left me
to serve alone? bid her therefore that she help me.

42:010:041 And Jesus answered and said unto her, Martha, Martha, thou art
careful and troubled about many things:

42:010:042 But one thing is needful: and Mary hath chosen that good part,
which shall not be taken away from her.

42:011:001 And it came to pass, that, as he was praying in a certain
place, when he ceased, one of his disciples said unto him,
Lord, teach us to pray, as John also taught his disciples.

42:011:002 And he said unto them, When ye pray, say, Our Father which art
in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be
done, as in heaven, so in earth.

42:011:003 Give us day by day our daily bread.

42:011:004 And forgive us our sins; for we also forgive every one that is
indebted to us. And lead us not into temptation; but deliver
us from evil.

42:011:005 And he said unto them, Which of you shall have a friend, and
shall go unto him at midnight, and say unto him, Friend, lend
me three loaves;

42:011:006 For a friend of mine in his journey is come to me, and I have
nothing to set before him?

42:011:007 And he from within shall answer and say, Trouble me not: the
door is now shut, and my children are with me in bed; I cannot
rise and give thee.

42:011:008 I say unto you, Though he will not rise and give him, because
he is his friend, yet because of his importunity he will rise
and give him as many as he needeth.

42:011:009 And I say unto you, Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and
ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you.

42:011:010 For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh
findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.

42:011:011 If a son shall ask bread of any of you that is a father, will
he give him a stone? or if he ask a fish, will he for a fish
give him a serpent?

42:011:012 Or if he shall ask an egg, will he offer him a scorpion?

42:011:013 If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your
children: how much more shall your heavenly Father give the
Holy Spirit to them that ask him?

42:011:014 And he was casting out a devil, and it was dumb. And it came
to pass, when the devil was gone out, the dumb spake; and the
people wondered.

42:011:015 But some of them said, He casteth out devils through Beelzebub
the chief of the devils.

42:011:016 And others, tempting him, sought of him a sign from heaven.

42:011:017 But he, knowing their thoughts, said unto them, Every kingdom
divided against itself is brought to desolation; and a house
divided against a house falleth.

42:011:018 If Satan also be divided against himself, how shall his
kingdom stand? because ye say that I cast out devils through

42:011:019 And if I by Beelzebub cast out devils, by whom do your sons
cast them out? therefore shall they be your judges.

42:011:020 But if I with the finger of God cast out devils, no doubt the
kingdom of God is come upon you.

42:011:021 When a strong man armed keepeth his palace, his goods are in

42:011:022 But when a stronger than he shall come upon him, and overcome
him, he taketh from him all his armour wherein he trusted, and
divideth his spoils.

42:011:023 He that is not with me is against me: and he that gathereth
not with me scattereth.

42:011:024 When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walketh
through dry places, seeking rest; and finding none, he saith,
I will return unto my house whence I came out.

42:011:025 And when he cometh, he findeth it swept and garnished.

42:011:026 Then goeth he, and taketh to him 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.

42:011:027 And it came to pass, as he spake these things, a certain woman
of the company lifted up her voice, and said unto him, Blessed
is the womb that bare thee, and the paps which thou hast

42:011:028 But he said, Yea rather, blessed are they that hear the word
of God, and keep it.

42:011:029 And when the people were gathered thick together, he began to
say, This is an evil generation: they seek a sign; and there
shall no sign be given it, but the sign of Jonas the prophet.

42:011:030 For as Jonas was a sign unto the Ninevites, so shall also the
Son of man be to this generation.

42:011:031 The queen of the south shall rise up in the judgment with the
men of this generation, and condemn them: for she came from
the utmost parts of the earth to hear the wisdom of Solomon;
and, behold, a greater than Solomon is here.

42:011:032 The men of Nineve shall rise up in the judgment with this
generation, and shall condemn it: for they repented at the
preaching of Jonas; and, behold, a greater than Jonas is here.

42:011:033 No man, when he hath lighted a candle, putteth it in a secret
place, neither under a bushel, but on a candlestick, that they
which come in may see the light.

42:011:034 The light of the body is the eye: therefore when thine eye is
single, thy whole body also is full of light; but when thine
eye is evil, thy body also is full of darkness.

42:011:035 Take heed therefore that the light which is in thee be not

42:011:036 If thy whole body therefore be full of light, having no part
dark, the whole shall be full of light, as when the bright
shining of a candle doth give thee light.

42:011:037 And as he spake, a certain Pharisee besought him to dine with
him: and he went in, and sat down to meat.

42:011:038 And when the Pharisee saw it, he marvelled that he had not
first washed before dinner.

42:011:039 And the Lord said unto him, Now do ye Pharisees make clean the
outside of the cup and the platter; but your inward part is
full of ravening and wickedness.

42:011:040 Ye fools, did not he that made that which is without make that
which is within also?

42:011:041 But rather give alms of such things as ye have; and, behold,
all things are clean unto you.

42:011:042 But woe unto you, Pharisees! for ye tithe mint and rue and all
manner of herbs, and pass over judgment and the love of God:
these ought ye to have done, and not to leave the other

42:011:043 Woe unto you, Pharisees! for ye love the uppermost seats in
the synagogues, and greetings in the markets.

42:011:044 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye are as
graves which appear not, and the men that walk over them are
not aware of them.

42:011:045 Then answered one of the lawyers, and said unto him, Master,
thus saying thou reproachest us also.

42:011:046 And he said, Woe unto you also, ye lawyers! for ye lade men
with burdens grievous to be borne, and ye yourselves touch not
the burdens with one of your fingers.

42:011:047 Woe unto you! for ye build the sepulchres of the prophets, and
your fathers killed them.

42:011:048 Truly ye bear witness that ye allow the deeds of your fathers:
for they indeed killed them, and ye build their sepulchres.

42:011:049 Therefore also said the wisdom of God, I will send them
prophets and apostles, and some of them they shall slay and

42:011:050 That the blood of all the prophets, which was shed from the
foundation of the world, may be required of this generation;

42:011:051 From the blood of Abel unto the blood of Zacharias which
perished between the altar and the temple: verily I say unto
you, It shall be required of this generation.

42:011:052 Woe unto you, lawyers! for ye have taken away the key of
knowledge: ye entered not in yourselves, and them that were
entering in ye hindered.

42:011:053 And as he said these things unto them, the scribes and the
Pharisees began to urge him vehemently, and to provoke him to
speak of many things:

42:011:054 Laying wait for him, and seeking to catch something out of his
mouth, that they might accuse him.

42:012:001 In the mean time, when there were gathered together an
innumerable multitude of people, insomuch that they trode one
upon another, he began to say unto his disciples first of all,
Beware ye of the leaven of the Pharisees, which is hypocrisy.

42:012:002 For there is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed;
neither hid, that shall not be known.

42:012:003 Therefore whatsoever ye have spoken in darkness shall be heard
in the light; and that which ye have spoken in the ear in
closets shall be proclaimed upon the housetops.

42:012:004 And I say unto you my friends, Be not afraid of them that kill
the body, and after that have no more that they can do.

42:012:005 But I will forewarn you whom ye shall fear: Fear him, which
after he hath killed hath power to cast into hell; yea, I say
unto you, Fear him.

42:012:006 Are not five sparrows sold for two farthings, and not one of
them is forgotten before God?

42:012:007 But even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear
not therefore: ye are of more value than many sparrows.

42:012:008 Also I say unto you, Whosoever shall confess me before men,
him shall the Son of man also confess before the angels of

42:012:009 But he that denieth me before men shall be denied before the
angels of God.

42:012:010 And whosoever shall speak a word against the Son of man, it
shall be forgiven him: but unto him that blasphemeth against
the Holy Ghost it shall not be forgiven.

42:012:011 And when they bring you unto the synagogues, and unto
magistrates, and powers, take ye no thought how or what thing
ye shall answer, or what ye shall say:

42:012:012 For the Holy Ghost shall teach you in the same hour what ye
ought to say.

42:012:013 And one of the company said unto him, Master, speak to my
brother, that he divide the inheritance with me.

42:012:014 And he said unto him, Man, who made me a judge or a divider
over you?

42:012:015 And he said unto them, Take heed, and beware of covetousness:
for a man's life consisteth not in the abundance of the things
which he possesseth.

42:012:016 And he spake a parable unto them, saying, The ground of a
certain rich man brought forth plentifully:

42:012:017 And he thought within himself, saying, What shall I do,
because I have no room where to bestow my fruits?

42:012:018 And he said, This will I do: I will pull down my barns, and
build greater; and there will I bestow all my fruits and my

42:012:019 And I will say to my soul, Soul, thou hast much goods laid up
for many years; take thine ease, eat, drink, and be merry.

42:012:020 But God said unto him, Thou fool, this night thy soul shall be
required of thee: then whose shall those things be, which thou
hast provided?

42:012:021 So is he that layeth up treasure for himself, and is not rich
toward God.

42:012:022 And he said unto his disciples, Therefore I say unto you, Take
no thought for your life, what ye shall eat; neither for the
body, what ye shall put on.

42:012:023 The life is more than meat, and the body is more than raiment.

42:012:024 Consider the ravens: for they neither sow nor reap; which
neither have storehouse nor barn; and God feedeth them: how
much more are ye better than the fowls?

42:012:025 And which of you with taking thought can add to his stature
one cubit?

42:012:026 If ye then be not able to do that thing which is least, why
take ye thought for the rest?

42:012:027 Consider the lilies how they grow: they toil not, they spin
not; and yet I say unto you, that Solomon in all his glory was
not arrayed like one of these.

42:012:028 If then God so clothe the grass, which is to day in the field,
and to morrow is cast into the oven; how much more will he
clothe you, O ye of little faith?

42:012:029 And seek not ye what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink,
neither be ye of doubtful mind.

42:012:030 For all these things do the nations of the world seek after:
and your Father knoweth that ye have need of these things.

42:012:031 But rather seek ye the kingdom of God; and all these things
shall be added unto you.

42:012:032 Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father's good pleasure
to give you the kingdom.

42:012:033 Sell that ye have, and give alms; provide yourselves bags
which wax not old, a treasure in the heavens that faileth not,
where no thief approacheth, neither moth corrupteth.

42:012:034 For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.

42:012:035 Let your loins be girded about, and your lights burning;

42:012:036 And ye yourselves like unto men that wait for their lord, when
he will return from the wedding; that when he cometh and
knocketh, they may open unto him immediately.

42:012:037 Blessed are those servants, whom the lord when he cometh shall
find watching: verily I say unto you, that he shall gird
himself, and make them to sit down to meat, and will come
forth and serve them.

42:012:038 And if he shall come in the second watch, or come in the third
watch, and find them so, blessed are those servants.

42:012:039 And this know, that if the goodman of the house had known what
hour the thief would come, he would have watched, and not have
suffered his house to be broken through.

42:012:040 Be ye therefore ready also: for the Son of man cometh at an
hour when ye think not.

42:012:041 Then Peter said unto him, Lord, speakest thou this parable
unto us, or even to all?

42:012:042 And the Lord said, Who then is that faithful and wise steward,
whom his lord shall make ruler over his household, to give
them their portion of meat in due season?

42:012:043 Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he cometh shall
find so doing.

42:012:044 Of a truth I say unto you, that he will make him ruler over
all that he hath.

42:012:045 But and if that servant say in his heart, My lord delayeth his
coming; and shall begin to beat the menservants and maidens,
and to eat and drink, and to be drunken;

42:012:046 The lord of that servant will come in a day when he looketh
not for him, and at an hour when he is not aware, and will cut
him in sunder, and will appoint him his portion with the

42:012:047 And that servant, which knew his lord's will, and prepared not
himself, neither did according to his will, shall be beaten
with many stripes.

42:012:048 But he that knew not, and did commit things worthy of stripes,
shall be beaten with few stripes. For unto whomsoever much is
given, of him shall be much required: and to whom men have
committed much, of him they will ask the more.

42:012:049 I am come to send fire on the earth; and what will I, if it be
already kindled?

42:012:050 But I have a baptism to be baptized with; and how am I
straitened till it be accomplished!

42:012:051 Suppose ye that I am come to give peace on earth? I tell you,
Nay; but rather division:

42:012:052 For from henceforth there shall be five in one house divided,
three against two, and two against three.

42:012:053 The father shall be divided against the son, and the son
against the father; the mother against the daughter, and the
daughter against the mother; the mother in law against her
daughter in law, and the daughter in law against her mother in

42:012:054 And he said also to the people, When ye see a cloud rise out
of the west, straightway ye say, There cometh a shower; and so
it is.

42:012:055 And when ye see the south wind blow, ye say, There will be
heat; and it cometh to pass.

42:012:056 Ye hypocrites, ye can discern the face of the sky and of the
earth; but how is it that ye do not discern this time?

42:012:057 Yea, and why even of yourselves judge ye not what is right?

42:012:058 When thou goest with thine adversary to the magistrate, as
thou art in the way, give diligence that thou mayest be
delivered from him; lest he hale thee to the judge, and the
judge deliver thee to the officer, and the officer cast thee
into prison.

42:012:059 I tell thee, thou shalt not depart thence, till thou hast paid
the very last mite.

42:013:001 There were present at that season some that told him of the
Galilaeans, whose blood Pilate had mingled with their

42:013:002 And Jesus answering said unto them, Suppose ye that these
Galilaeans were sinners above all the Galilaeans, because they
suffered such things?

42:013:003 I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise

42:013:004 Or those eighteen, upon whom the tower in Siloam fell, and
slew them, think ye that they were sinners above all men that
dwelt in Jerusalem?

42:013:005 I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise

42:013:006 He spake also this parable; A certain man had a fig tree
planted in his vineyard; and he came and sought fruit thereon,
and found none.

42:013:007 Then said he unto the dresser of his vineyard, Behold, these
three years I come seeking fruit on this fig tree, and find
none: cut it down; why cumbereth it the ground?

42:013:008 And he answering said unto him, Lord, let it alone this year
also, till I shall dig about it, and dung it:

42:013:009 And if it bear fruit, well: and if not, then after that thou
shalt cut it down.

42:013:010 And he was teaching in one of the synagogues on the sabbath.

42:013:011 And, behold, there was a woman which had a spirit of infirmity
eighteen years, and was bowed together, and could in no wise
lift up herself.

42:013:012 And when Jesus saw her, he called her to him, and said unto
her, Woman, thou art loosed from thine infirmity.

42:013:013 And he laid his hands on her: and immediately she was made
straight, and glorified God.

42:013:014 And the ruler of the synagogue answered with indignation,
because that Jesus had healed on the sabbath day, and said
unto the people, There are six days in which men ought to
work: in them therefore come and be healed, and not on the
sabbath day.

42:013:015 The Lord then answered him, and said, Thou hypocrite, doth not
each one of you on the sabbath loose his ox or his ass from
the stall, and lead him away to watering?

42:013:016 And ought not this woman, being a daughter of Abraham, whom
Satan hath bound, lo, these eighteen years, be loosed from
this bond on the sabbath day?

42:013:017 And when he had said these things, all his adversaries were
ashamed: and all the people rejoiced for all the glorious
things that were done by him.

42:013:018 Then said he, Unto what is the kingdom of God like? and
whereunto shall I resemble it?

42:013:019 It is like a grain of mustard seed, which a man took, and cast
into his garden; and it grew, and waxed a great tree; and the
fowls of the air lodged in the branches of it.

42:013:020 And again he said, Whereunto shall I liken the kingdom of God?

42:013:021 It is like leaven, which a woman took and hid in three
measures of meal, till the whole was leavened.

42:013:022 And he went through the cities and villages, teaching, and
journeying toward Jerusalem.

42:013:023 Then said one unto him, Lord, are there few that be saved? And
he said unto them,

42:013:024 Strive to enter in at the strait gate: for many, I say unto
you, will seek to enter in, and shall not be able.

42:013:025 When once the master of the house is risen up, and hath shut
to the door, and ye begin to stand without, and to knock at
the door, saying, Lord, Lord, open unto us; and he shall
answer and say unto you, I know you not whence ye are:

42:013:026 Then shall ye begin to say, We have eaten and drunk in thy
presence, and thou hast taught in our streets.

42:013:027 But he shall say, I tell you, I know you not whence ye are;
depart from me, all ye workers of iniquity.

42:013:028 There shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth, when ye shall
see Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, and all the prophets, in
the kingdom of God, and you yourselves thrust out.

42:013:029 And they shall come from the east, and from the west, and from
the north, and from the south, and shall sit down in the
kingdom of God.

42:013:030 And, behold, there are last which shall be first, and there
are first which shall be last.

42:013:031 The same day there came certain of the Pharisees, saying unto
him, Get thee out, and depart hence: for Herod will kill thee.

42:013:032 And he said unto them, Go ye, and tell that fox, Behold, I
cast out devils, and I do cures to day and to morrow, and the
third day I shall be perfected.

42:013:033 Nevertheless I must walk to day, and to morrow, and the day
following: for it cannot be that a prophet perish out of

42:013:034 O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, which killest the prophets, and
stonest them that are sent unto thee; how often would I have
gathered thy children together, as a hen doth gather her brood
under her wings, and ye would not!

42:013:035 Behold, your house is left unto you desolate: and verily I say
unto you, Ye shall not see me, until the time come when ye
shall say, Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord.

42:014:001 And it came to pass, as he went into the house of one of the
chief Pharisees to eat bread on the sabbath day, that they
watched him.

42:014:002 And, behold, there was a certain man before him which had the

42:014:003 And Jesus answering spake unto the lawyers and Pharisees,
saying, Is it lawful to heal on the sabbath day?

42:014:004 And they held their peace. And he took him, and healed him,
and let him go;

42:014:005 And answered them, saying, Which of you shall have an ass or
an ox fallen into a pit, and will not straightway pull him out
on the sabbath day?

42:014:006 And they could not answer him again to these things.

42:014:007 And he put forth a parable to those which were bidden, when he
marked how they chose out the chief rooms; saying unto them.

42:014:008 When thou art bidden of any man to a wedding, sit not down in
the highest room; lest a more honourable man than thou be
bidden of him;

42:014:009 And he that bade thee and him come and say to thee, Give this
man place; and thou begin with shame to take the lowest room.

42:014:010 But when thou art bidden, go and sit down in the lowest room;
that when he that bade thee cometh, he may say unto thee,
Friend, go up higher: then shalt thou have worship in the
presence of them that sit at meat with thee.

42:014:011 For whosoever exalteth himself shall be abased; and he that
humbleth himself shall be exalted.

42:014:012 Then said he also to him that bade him, When thou makest a
dinner or a supper, call not thy friends, nor thy brethren,
neither thy kinsmen, nor thy rich neighbours; lest they also
bid thee again, and a recompence be made thee.

42:014:013 But when thou makest a feast, call the poor, the maimed, the
lame, the blind:

42:014:014 And thou shalt be blessed; for they cannot recompense thee:
for thou shalt be recompensed at the resurrection of the just.

42:014:015 And when one of them that sat at meat with him heard these
things, he said unto him, Blessed is he that shall eat bread
in the kingdom of God.

42:014:016 Then said he unto him, A certain man made a great supper, and
bade many:

42:014:017 And sent his servant at supper time to say to them that were
bidden, Come; for all things are now ready.

42:014:018 And they all with one consent began to make excuse. The first
said unto him, I have bought a piece of ground, and I must
needs go and see it: I pray thee have me excused.

42:014:019 And another said, I have bought five yoke of oxen, and I go to
prove them: I pray thee have me excused.

42:014:020 And another said, I have married a wife, and therefore I
cannot come.

42:014:021 So that servant came, and shewed his lord these things. Then
the master of the house being angry said to his servant, Go
out quickly into the streets and lanes of the city, and bring
in hither the poor, and the maimed, and the halt, and the

42:014:022 And the servant said, Lord, it is done as thou hast commanded,
and yet there is room.

42:014:023 And the lord said unto the servant, Go out into the highways
and hedges, and compel them to come in, that my house may be

42:014:024 For I say unto you, That none of those men which were bidden
shall taste of my supper.

42:014:025 And there went great multitudes with him: and he turned, and
said unto them,

42:014:026 If any man come to me, and hate not his father, and mother,
and wife, and children, and brethren, and sisters, yea, and
his own life also, he cannot be my disciple.

42:014:027 And whosoever doth not bear his cross, and come after me,
cannot be my disciple.

42:014:028 For which of you, intending to build a tower, sitteth not down
first, and counteth the cost, whether he have sufficient to
finish it?

42:014:029 Lest haply, after he hath laid the foundation, and is not able
to finish it, all that behold it begin to mock him,

42:014:030 Saying, This man began to build, and was not able to finish.

42:014:031 Or what king, going to make war against another king, sitteth
not down first, and consulteth whether he be able with ten
thousand to meet him that cometh against him with twenty

42:014:032 Or else, while the other is yet a great way off, he sendeth an
ambassage, and desireth conditions of peace.

42:014:033 So likewise, whosoever he be of you that forsaketh not all
that he hath, he cannot be my disciple.

42:014:034 Salt is good: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith
shall it be seasoned?

42:014:035 It is neither fit for the land, nor yet for the dunghill; but
men cast it out. He that hath ears to hear, let him hear.

42:015:001 Then drew near unto him all the publicans and sinners for to
hear him.

42:015:002 And the Pharisees and scribes murmured, saying, This man
receiveth sinners, and eateth with them.

42:015:003 And he spake this parable unto them, saying,

42:015:004 What man of you, having an hundred sheep, if he lose one of
them, doth not leave the ninety and nine in the wilderness,
and go after that which is lost, until he find it?

42:015:005 And when he hath found it, he layeth it on his shoulders,

42:015:006 And when he cometh home, he calleth together his friends and
neighbours, saying unto them, Rejoice with me; for I have
found my sheep which was lost.

42:015:007 I say unto you, that likewise joy shall be in heaven over one
sinner that repenteth, more than over ninety and nine just
persons, which need no repentance.

42:015:008 Either what woman having ten pieces of silver, if she lose one
piece, doth not light a candle, and sweep the house, and seek
diligently till she find it?

42:015:009 And when she hath found it, she calleth her friends and her
neighbours together, saying, Rejoice with me; for I have found
the piece which I had lost.

42:015:010 Likewise, I say unto you, there is joy in the presence of the
angels of God over one sinner that repenteth.

42:015:011 And he said, A certain man had two sons:

42:015:012 And the younger of them said to his father, Father, give me
the portion of goods that falleth to me. And he divided unto
them his living.

42:015:013 And not many days after the younger son gathered all together,
and took his journey into a far country, and there wasted his
substance with riotous living.

42:015:014 And when he had spent all, there arose a mighty famine in that
land; and he began to be in want.

42:015:015 And he went and joined himself to a citizen of that country;
and he sent him into his fields to feed swine.

42:015:016 And he would fain have filled his belly with the husks that
the swine did eat: and no man gave unto him.

42:015:017 And when he came to himself, he said, How many hired servants
of my father's have bread enough and to spare, and I perish
with hunger!

42:015:018 I will arise and go to my father, and will say unto him,
Father, I have sinned against heaven, and before thee,

42:015:019 And am no more worthy to be called thy son: make me as one of
thy hired servants.

42:015:020 And he arose, and came to his father. But when he was yet a
great way off, his father saw him, and had compassion, and
ran, and fell on his neck, and kissed him.

42:015:021 And the son said unto him, Father, I have sinned against
heaven, and in thy sight, and am no more worthy to be called
thy son.

42:015:022 But the father said to his servants, Bring forth the best
robe, and put it on him; and put a ring on his hand, and shoes
on his feet:

42:015:023 And bring hither the fatted calf, and kill it; and let us eat,
and be merry:

42:015:024 For this my son was dead, and is alive again; he was lost, and
is found. And they began to be merry.

42:015:025 Now his elder son was in the field: and as he came and drew
nigh to the house, he heard musick and dancing.

42:015:026 And he called one of the servants, and asked what these things

42:015:027 And he said unto him, Thy brother is come; and thy father hath
killed the fatted calf, because he hath received him safe and

42:015:028 And he was angry, and would not go in: therefore came his
father out, and intreated him.

42:015:029 And he answering said to his father, Lo, these many years do I
serve thee, neither transgressed I at any time thy
commandment: and yet thou never gavest me a kid, that I might
make merry with my friends:

42:015:030 But as soon as this thy son was come, which hath devoured thy
living with harlots, thou hast killed for him the fatted calf.

42:015:031 And he said unto him, Son, thou art ever with me, and all that
I have is thine.

42:015:032 It was meet that we should make merry, and be glad: for this
thy brother was dead, and is alive again; and was lost, and is

42:016:001 And he said also unto his disciples, There was a certain rich
man, which had a steward; and the same was accused unto him
that he had wasted his goods.

42:016:002 And he called him, and said unto him, How is it that I hear
this of thee? give an account of thy stewardship; for thou
mayest be no longer steward.

42:016:003 Then the steward said within himself, What shall I do? for my
lord taketh away from me the stewardship: I cannot dig; to beg
I am ashamed.

42:016:004 I am resolved what to do, that, when I am put out of the
stewardship, they may receive me into their houses.

42:016:005 So he called every one of his lord's debtors unto him, and
said unto the first, How much owest thou unto my lord?

42:016:006 And he said, An hundred measures of oil. And he said unto him,
Take thy bill, and sit down quickly, and write fifty.

42:016:007 Then said he to another, And how much owest thou? And he said,
An hundred measures of wheat. And he said unto him, Take thy
bill, and write fourscore.

42:016:008 And the lord commended the unjust steward, because he had done
wisely: for the children of this world are in their generation
wiser than the children of light.

42:016:009 And I say unto you, Make to yourselves friends of the mammon
of unrighteousness; that, when ye fail, they may receive you
into everlasting habitations.

42:016:010 He that is faithful in that which is least is faithful also in
much: and he that is unjust in the least is unjust also in

42:016:011 If therefore ye have not been faithful in the unrighteous
mammon, who will commit to your trust the true riches?

42:016:012 And if ye have not been faithful in that which is another
man's, who shall give you that which is your own?

42:016:013 No servant 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.

42:016:014 And the Pharisees also, who were covetous, heard all these
things: and they derided him.

42:016:015 And he said unto them, Ye are they which justify yourselves
before men; but God knoweth your hearts: for that which is
highly esteemed among men is abomination in the sight of God.

42:016:016 The law and the prophets were until John: since that time the
kingdom of God is preached, and every man presseth into it.

42:016:017 And it is easier for heaven and earth to pass, than one tittle
of the law to fail.

42:016:018 Whosoever putteth away his wife, and marrieth another,
committeth adultery: and whosoever marrieth her that is put
away from her husband committeth adultery.

42:016:019 There was a certain rich man, which was clothed in purple and
fine linen, and fared sumptuously every day:

42:016:020 And there was a certain beggar named Lazarus, which was laid
at his gate, full of sores,

42:016:021 And desiring to be fed with the crumbs which fell from the
rich man's table: moreover the dogs came and licked his sores.

42:016:022 And it came to pass, that the beggar died, and was carried by
the angels into Abraham's bosom: the rich man also died, and
was buried;

42:016:023 And in hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments, and seeth
Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom.

42:016:024 And he cried and said, Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and
send Lazarus, that he may dip the tip of his finger in water,
and cool my tongue; for I am tormented in this flame.

42:016:025 But Abraham said, Son, remember that thou in thy lifetime
receivedst thy good things, and likewise Lazarus evil things:
but now he is comforted, and thou art tormented.

42:016:026 And beside all this, between us and you there is a great gulf
fixed: so that they which would pass from hence to you cannot;
neither can they pass to us, that would come from thence.

42:016:027 Then he said, I pray thee therefore, father, that thou
wouldest send him to my father's house:

42:016:028 For I have five brethren; that he may testify unto them, lest
they also come into this place of torment.

42:016:029 Abraham saith unto him, They have Moses and the prophets; let
them hear them.

42:016:030 And he said, Nay, father Abraham: but if one went unto them
from the dead, they will repent.

42:016:031 And he said unto him, If they hear not Moses and the prophets,
neither will they be persuaded, though one rose from the dead.

42:017:001 Then said he unto the disciples, It is impossible but that
offences will come: but woe unto him, through whom they come!

42:017:002 It were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his
neck, and he cast into the sea, than that he should offend one
of these little ones.

42:017:003 Take heed to yourselves: If thy brother trespass against thee,
rebuke him; and if he repent, forgive him.

42:017:004 And if he trespass against thee seven times in a day, and
seven times in a day turn again to thee, saying, I repent;
thou shalt forgive him.

42:017:005 And the apostles said unto the Lord, Increase our faith.

42:017:006 And the Lord said, If ye had faith as a grain of mustard seed,
ye might say unto this sycamine tree, Be thou plucked up by
the root, and be thou planted in the sea; and it should obey

42:017:007 But which of you, having a servant plowing or feeding cattle,
will say unto him by and by, when he is come from the field,
Go and sit down to meat?

42:017:008 And will not rather say unto him, Make ready wherewith I may
sup, and gird thyself, and serve me, till I have eaten and
drunken; and afterward thou shalt eat and drink?

42:017:009 Doth he thank that servant because he did the things that were
commanded him? I trow not.

42:017:010 So likewise ye, when ye shall have done all those things which
are commanded you, say, We are unprofitable servants: we have
done that which was our duty to do.

42:017:011 And it came to pass, as he went to Jerusalem, that he passed
through the midst of Samaria and Galilee.

42:017:012 And as he entered into a certain village, there met him ten
men that were lepers, which stood afar off:

42:017:013 And they lifted up their voices, and said, Jesus, Master, have
mercy on us.

42:017:014 And when he saw them, he said unto them, Go shew yourselves
unto the priests. And it came to pass, that, as they went,
they were cleansed.

42:017:015 And one of them, when he saw that he was healed, turned back,
and with a loud voice glorified God,

42:017:016 And fell down on his face at his feet, giving him thanks: and
he was a Samaritan.

42:017:017 And Jesus answering said, Were there not ten cleansed? but
where are the nine?

42:017:018 There are not found that returned to give glory to God, save
this stranger.

42:017:019 And he said unto him, Arise, go thy way: thy faith hath made
thee whole.

42:017:020 And when he was demanded of the Pharisees, when the kingdom of
God should come, he answered them and said, The kingdom of God
cometh not with observation:

42:017:021 Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold,
the kingdom of God is within you.

42:017:022 And he said unto the disciples, The days will come, when ye
shall desire to see one of the days of the Son of man, and ye
shall not see it.

42:017:023 And they shall say to you, See here; or, see there: go not
after them, nor follow them.

42:017:024 For as the lightning, that lighteneth out of the one part
under heaven, shineth unto the other part under heaven; so
shall also the Son of man be in his day.

42:017:025 But first must he suffer many things, and be rejected of this

42:017:026 And as it was in the days of Noe, so shall it be also in the
days of the Son of man.

42:017:027 They did eat, they drank, they married wives, they were given
in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, and
the flood came, and destroyed them all.

42:017:028 Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they
drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded;

42:017:029 But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and
brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all.

42:017:030 Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is

42:017:031 In that day, he which shall be upon the housetop, and his
stuff in the house, let him not come down to take it away: and
he that is in the field, let him likewise not return back.

42:017:032 Remember Lot's wife.

42:017:033 Whosoever shall seek to save his life shall lose it; and
whosoever shall lose his life shall preserve it.

42:017:034 I tell you, in that night there shall be two men in one bed;
the one shall be taken, and the other shall be left.

42:017:035 Two women shall be grinding together; the one shall be taken,
and the other left.

42:017:036 Two men shall be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the
other left.

42:017:037 And they answered and said unto him, Where, Lord? And he said
unto them, Wheresoever the body is, thither will the eagles be
gathered together.

42:018:001 And he spake a parable unto them to this end, that men ought
always to pray, and not to faint;

42:018:002 Saying, There was in a city a judge, which feared not God,
neither regarded man:

42:018:003 And there was a widow in that city; and she came unto him,
saying, Avenge me of mine adversary.

42:018:004 And he would not for a while: but afterward he said within
himself, Though I fear not God, nor regard man;

42:018:005 Yet because this widow troubleth me, I will avenge her, lest
by her continual coming she weary me.

42:018:006 And the Lord said, Hear what the unjust judge saith.

42:018:007 And shall not God avenge his own elect, which cry day and
night unto him, though he bear long with them?

42:018:008 I tell you that he will avenge them speedily. Nevertheless
when the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth?

42:018:009 And he spake this parable unto certain which trusted in
themselves that they were righteous, and despised others:

42:018:010 Two men went up into the temple to pray; the one a Pharisee,
and the other a publican.

42:018:011 The Pharisee stood and prayed thus with himself, God, I thank
thee, that I am not as other men are, extortioners, unjust,
adulterers, or even as this publican.

42:018:012 I fast twice in the week, I give tithes of all that I possess.

42:018:013 And the publican, standing afar off, would not lift up so much
as his eyes unto heaven, but smote upon his breast, saying,
God be merciful to me a sinner.

42:018:014 I tell you, this man went down to his house justified rather
than the other: for every one that exalteth himself shall be
abased; and he that humbleth himself shall be exalted.

42:018:015 And they brought unto him also infants, that he would touch
them: but when his disciples saw it, they rebuked them.

42:018:016 But Jesus called them unto him, and said, Suffer little
children to come unto me, and forbid them not: for of such is
the kingdom of God.

42:018:017 Verily I say unto you, Whosoever shall not receive the kingdom
of God as a little child shall in no wise enter therein.

42:018:018 And a certain ruler asked him, saying, Good Master, what shall
I do to inherit eternal life?

42:018:019 And Jesus said unto him, Why callest thou me good? none is
good, save one, that is, God.

42:018:020 Thou knowest the commandments, Do not commit adultery, Do not
kill, Do not steal, Do not bear false witness, Honour thy
father and thy mother.

42:018:021 And he said, All these have I kept from my youth up.

42:018:022 Now when Jesus heard these things, he said unto him, Yet
lackest thou one thing: sell all that thou hast, and
distribute unto the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in
heaven: and come, follow me.

42:018:023 And when he heard this, he was very sorrowful: for he was very

42:018:024 And when Jesus saw that he was very sorrowful, he said, How
hardly shall they that have riches enter into the kingdom of

42:018:025 For it is easier for a camel to go through a needle's eye,
than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God.

42:018:026 And they that heard it said, Who then can be saved?

42:018:027 And he said, The things which are impossible with men are
possible with God.

42:018:028 Then Peter said, Lo, we have left all, and followed thee.

42:018:029 And he said unto them, Verily I say unto you, There is no man
that hath left house, or parents, or brethren, or wife, or
children, for the kingdom of God's sake,

42:018:030 Who shall not receive manifold more in this present time, and
in the world to come life everlasting.

42:018:031 Then he took unto him the twelve, and said unto them, Behold,
we go up to Jerusalem, and all things that are written by the
prophets concerning the Son of man shall be accomplished.

42:018:032 For he shall be delivered unto the Gentiles, and shall be
mocked, and spitefully entreated, and spitted on:

42:018:033 And they shall scourge him, and put him to death: and the
third day he shall rise again.

42:018:034 And they understood none of these things: and this saying was
hid from them, neither knew they the things which were spoken.

42:018:035 And it came to pass, that as he was come nigh unto Jericho, a
certain blind man sat by the way side begging:

42:018:036 And hearing the multitude pass by, he asked what it meant.

42:018:037 And they told him, that Jesus of Nazareth passeth by.

42:018:038 And he cried, saying, Jesus, thou son of David, have mercy on

42:018:039 And they which went before rebuked him, that he should hold
his peace: but he cried so much the more, Thou son of David,
have mercy on me.

42:018:040 And Jesus stood, and commanded him to be brought unto him: and
when he was come near, he asked him,

42:018:041 Saying, What wilt thou that I shall do unto thee? And he said,
Lord, that I may receive my sight.

42:018:042 And Jesus said unto him, Receive thy sight: thy faith hath
saved thee.

42:018:043 And immediately he received his sight, and followed him,
glorifying God: and all the people, when they saw it, gave
praise unto God.

42:019:001 And Jesus entered and passed through Jericho.

42:019:002 And, behold, there was a man named Zacchaeus, which was the
chief among the publicans, and he was rich.

42:019:003 And he sought to see Jesus who he was; and could not for the
press, because he was little of stature.

42:019:004 And he ran before, and climbed up into a sycomore tree to see
him: for he was to pass that way.

42:019:005 And when Jesus came to the place, he looked up, and saw him,
and said unto him, Zacchaeus, make haste, and come down; for
to day I must abide at thy house.

42:019:006 And he made haste, and came down, and received him joyfully.

42:019:007 And when they saw it, they all murmured, saying, That he was
gone to be guest with a man that is a sinner.

42:019:008 And Zacchaeus stood, and said unto the Lord: Behold, Lord, the
half of my goods I give to the poor; and if I have taken any
thing from any man by false accusation, I restore him

42:019:009 And Jesus said unto him, This day is salvation come to this
house, forsomuch as he also is a son of Abraham.

42:019:010 For the Son of man is come to seek and to save that which was

42:019:011 And as they heard these things, he added and spake a parable,
because he was nigh to Jerusalem, and because they thought
that the kingdom of God should immediately appear.

42:019:012 He said therefore, A certain nobleman went into a far country
to receive for himself a kingdom, and to return.

42:019:013 And he called his ten servants, and delivered them ten pounds,
and said unto them, Occupy till I come.

42:019:014 But his citizens hated him, and sent a message after him,
saying, We will not have this man to reign over us.

42:019:015 And it came to pass, that when he was returned, having
received the kingdom, then he commanded these servants to be
called unto him, to whom he had given the money, that he might
know how much every man had gained by trading.

42:019:016 Then came the first, saying, Lord, thy pound hath gained ten

42:019:017 And he said unto him, Well, thou good servant: because thou
hast been faithful in a very little, have thou authority over
ten cities.

42:019:018 And the second came, saying, Lord, thy pound hath gained five

42:019:019 And he said likewise to him, Be thou also over five cities.

42:019:020 And another came, saying, Lord, behold, here is thy pound,
which I have kept laid up in a napkin:

42:019:021 For I feared thee, because thou art an austere man: thou
takest up that thou layedst not down, and reapest that thou
didst not sow.

42:019:022 And he saith unto him, Out of thine own mouth will I judge
thee, thou wicked servant. Thou knewest that I was an austere
man, taking up that I laid not down, and reaping that I did
not sow:

42:019:023 Wherefore then gavest not thou my money into the bank, that at
my coming I might have required mine own with usury?

42:019:024 And he said unto them that stood by, Take from him the pound,
and give it to him that hath ten pounds.

42:019:025 (And they said unto him, Lord, he hath ten pounds.)

42:019:026 For I say unto you, That unto every one which hath shall be
given; and from him that hath not, even that he hath shall be
taken away from him.

42:019:027 But those mine enemies, which would not that I should reign
over them, bring hither, and slay them before me.

42:019:028 And when he had thus spoken, he went before, ascending up to

42:019:029 And it came to pass, when he was come nigh to Bethphage and
Bethany, at the mount called the mount of Olives, he sent two
of his disciples,

42:019:030 Saying, Go ye into the village over against you; in the which
at your entering ye shall find a colt tied, whereon yet never
man sat: loose him, and bring him hither.

42:019:031 And if any man ask you, Why do ye loose him? thus shall ye say
unto him, Because the Lord hath need of him.

42:019:032 And they that were sent went their way, and found even as he
had said unto them.

42:019:033 And as they were loosing the colt, the owners thereof said
unto them, Why loose ye the colt?

42:019:034 And they said, The Lord hath need of him.

42:019:035 And they brought him to Jesus: and they cast their garments
upon the colt, and they set Jesus thereon.

42:019:036 And as he went, they spread their clothes in the way.

42:019:037 And when he was come nigh, even now at the descent of the
mount of Olives, the whole multitude of the disciples began to
rejoice and praise God with a loud voice for all the mighty
works that they had seen;

42:019:038 Saying, Blessed be the King that cometh in the name of the
Lord: peace in heaven, and glory in the highest.

42:019:039 And some of the Pharisees from among the multitude said unto
him, Master, rebuke thy disciples.

42:019:040 And he answered and said unto them, I tell you that, if these
should hold their peace, the stones would immediately cry out.

42:019:041 And when he was come near, he beheld the city, and wept over

42:019:042 Saying, If thou hadst known, even thou, at least in this thy
day, the things which belong unto thy peace! but now they are
hid from thine eyes.

42:019:043 For the days shall come upon thee, that thine enemies shall
cast a trench about thee, and compass thee round, and keep
thee in on every side,

42:019:044 And shall lay thee even with the ground, and thy children
within thee; and they shall not leave in thee one stone upon
another; because thou knewest not the time of thy visitation.

42:019:045 And he went into the temple, and began to cast out them that
sold therein, and them that bought;

42:019:046 Saying unto them, It is written, My house is the house of
prayer: but ye have made it a den of thieves.

42:019:047 And he taught daily in the temple. But the chief priests and
the scribes and the chief of the people sought to destroy him,

42:019:048 And could not find what they might do: for all the people were
very attentive to hear him.

42:020:001 And it came to pass, that on one of those days, as he taught
the people in the temple, and preached the gospel, the chief
priests and the scribes came upon him with the elders,

42:020:002 And spake unto him, saying, Tell us, by what authority doest
thou these things? or who is he that gave thee this authority?

42:020:003 And he answered and said unto them, I will also ask you one
thing; and answer me:

42:020:004 The baptism of John, was it from heaven, or of men?

42:020:005 And they reasoned with themselves, saying, If we shall say,
From heaven; he will say, Why then believed ye him not?

42:020:006 But and if we say, Of men; all the people will stone us: for
they be persuaded that John was a prophet.

42:020:007 And they answered, that they could not tell whence it was.

42:020:008 And Jesus said unto them, Neither tell I you by what authority
I do these things.

42:020:009 Then began he to speak to the people this parable; A certain
man planted a vineyard, and let it forth to husbandmen, and
went into a far country for a long time.

42:020:010 And at the season he sent a servant to the husbandmen, that
they should give him of the fruit of the vineyard: but the
husbandmen beat him, and sent him away empty.

42:020:011 And again he sent another servant: and they beat him also, and
entreated him shamefully, and sent him away empty.

42:020:012 And again he sent a third: and they wounded him also, and cast
him out.

42:020:013 Then said the lord of the vineyard, What shall I do? I will
send my beloved son: it may be they will reverence him when
they see him.

42:020:014 But when the husbandmen saw him, they reasoned among
themselves, saying, This is the heir: come, let us kill him,
that the inheritance may be ours.

42:020:015 So they cast him out of the vineyard, and killed him. What
therefore shall the lord of the vineyard do unto them?

42:020:016 He shall come and destroy these husbandmen, and shall give the
vineyard to others. And when they heard it, they said, God

42:020:017 And he beheld them, and said, What is this then that is
written, The stone which the builders rejected, the same is
become the head of the corner?

42:020:018 Whosoever shall fall upon that stone shall be broken; but on
whomsoever it shall fall, it will grind him to powder.

42:020:019 And the chief priests and the scribes the same hour sought to
lay hands on him; and they feared the people: for they
perceived that he had spoken this parable against them.

42:020:020 And they watched him, and sent forth spies, which should feign
themselves just men, that they might take hold of his words,
that so they might deliver him unto the power and authority of
the governor.

42:020:021 And they asked him, saying, Master, we know that thou sayest
and teachest rightly, neither acceptest thou the person of
any, but teachest the way of God truly:

42:020:022 Is it lawful for us to give tribute unto Caesar, or no?

42:020:023 But he perceived their craftiness, and said unto them, Why
tempt ye me?

42:020:024 Shew me a penny. Whose image and superscription hath it? They
answered and said, Caesar's.

42:020:025 And he said unto them, Render therefore unto Caesar the things
which be Caesar's, and unto God the things which be God's.

42:020:026 And they could not take hold of his words before the people:
and they marvelled at his answer, and held their peace.

42:020:027 Then came to him certain of the Sadducees, which deny that
there is any resurrection; and they asked him,

42:020:028 Saying, Master, Moses wrote unto us, If any man's brother die,
having a wife, and he die without children, that his brother
should take his wife, and raise up seed unto his brother.

42:020:029 There were therefore seven brethren: and the first took a
wife, and died without children.

42:020:030 And the second took her to wife, and he died childless.

42:020:031 And the third took her; and in like manner the seven also: and
they left no children, and died.

42:020:032 Last of all the woman died also.

42:020:033 Therefore in the resurrection whose wife of them is she? for
seven had her to wife.

42:020:034 And Jesus answering said unto them, The children of this world
marry, and are given in marriage:

42:020:035 But they which shall be accounted worthy to obtain that world,
and the resurrection from the dead, neither marry, nor are
given in marriage:

42:020:036 Neither can they die any more: for they are equal unto the
angels; and are the children of God, being the children of the

42:020:037 Now that the dead are raised, even Moses shewed at the bush,
when he calleth the Lord the God of Abraham, and the God of
Isaac, and the God of Jacob.

42:020:038 For he is not a God of the dead, but of the living: for all
live unto him.

42:020:039 Then certain of the scribes answering said, Master, thou hast
well said.

42:020:040 And after that they durst not ask him any question at all.

42:020:041 And he said unto them, How say they that Christ is David's

42:020:042 And David himself saith in the book of Psalms, The LORD said
unto my Lord, Sit thou on my right hand,

42:020:043 Till I make thine enemies thy footstool.

42:020:044 David therefore calleth him Lord, how is he then his son?

42:020:045 Then in the audience of all the people he said unto his

42:020:046 Beware of the scribes, which desire to walk in long robes, and
love greetings in the markets, and the highest seats in the
synagogues, and the chief rooms at feasts;

42:020:047 Which devour widows' houses, and for a shew make long prayers:
the same shall receive greater damnation.

42:021:001 And he looked up, and saw the rich men casting their gifts
into the treasury.

42:021:002 And he saw also a certain poor widow casting in thither two

42:021:003 And he said, Of a truth I say unto you, that this poor widow
hath cast in more than they all:

42:021:004 For all these have of their abundance cast in unto the
offerings of God: but she of her penury hath cast in all the
living that she had.

42:021:005 And as some spake of the temple, how it was adorned with
goodly stones and gifts, he said,

42:021:006 As for these things which ye behold, the days will come, in
the which there shall not be left one stone upon another, that
shall not be thrown down.

42:021:007 And they asked him, saying, Master, but when shall these
things be? and what sign will there be when these things shall
come to pass?

42:021:008 And he said, Take heed that ye be not deceived: for many shall
come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and the time draweth
near: go ye not therefore after them.

42:021:009 But when ye shall hear of wars and commotions, be not
terrified: for these things must first come to pass; but the
end is not by and by.

42:021:010 Then said he unto them, Nation shall rise against nation, and
kingdom against kingdom:

42:021:011 And great earthquakes shall be in divers places, and famines,
and pestilences; and fearful sights and great signs shall
there be from heaven.

42:021:012 But before all these, they shall lay their hands on you, and
persecute you, delivering you up to the synagogues, and into
prisons, being brought before kings and rulers for my name's

42:021:013 And it shall turn to you for a testimony.

42:021:014 Settle it therefore in your hearts, not to meditate before
what ye shall answer:

42:021:015 For I will give you a mouth and wisdom, which all your
adversaries shall not be able to gainsay nor resist.

42:021:016 And ye shall be betrayed both by parents, and brethren, and
kinsfolks, and friends; and some of you shall they cause to be
put to death.

42:021:017 And ye shall be hated of all men for my name's sake.

42:021:018 But there shall not an hair of your head perish.

42:021:019 In your patience possess ye your souls.

42:021:020 And when ye shall see Jerusalem compassed with armies, then
know that the desolation thereof is nigh.

42:021:021 Then let them which are in Judaea flee to the mountains; and
let them which are in the midst of it depart out; and let not
them that are in the countries enter thereinto.

42:021:022 For these be the days of vengeance, that all things which are
written may be fulfilled.

42:021:023 But woe unto them that are with child, and to them that give
suck, in those days! for there shall be great distress in the
land, and wrath upon this people.

42:021:024 And they shall fall by the edge of the sword, and shall be led
away captive into all nations: and Jerusalem shall be trodden
