16 And Jacob begat Joseph the husband of Mary, of whom was born
is called Christ.
17 So all the generations from Abraham to David, are fourteen
generations. And from David until they were carried away into Babylon,
fourteen generations: and after they were carried away into Babylon
until Christ, fourteen generations.
18 Now the birth of JESUS Christ was thus, When as his mother Mary
was betrothed to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with
child of the Holy Ghost.
19 Then Joseph her husband being a just man, and not willing to make
her a public example, was minded to put her away secretly.
20 But while he thought these things, behold, the Angel of the Lord
appeared unto him in a dream, saying, Joseph, the son of David, fear not
to take Mary for thy wife: for that which is conceived in her, is
of the Holy Ghost.
21 And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name
JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins.
22 And all this was done that it might be fulfilled, which was spoken
of the Lord by the Prophet, saying,
23 Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bear a son, and
they shall call his name Emmanuel, which is by interpretation, God with
24 Then Joseph, being raised from sleep, did as the Angel of the
Lord had enjoined him, and took his wife.
25 But he knew her not, till she had brought forth her first born
son, and he called his name JESUS.
1 When JESUS then was born at Bethlehem in Judea, in the days of
Herod the King, behold, there came Wisemen from the East to Jerusalem,
2 Saying, Where is the King of the Jews that is born? for we have
seen his star in the East, and are come to worship him.
3 When King Herod heard this, he was troubled, and all
Jerusalem with him.
4 And gathering together all the chief Priests and Scribes of the
people, he asked of them, where Christ should be born.
5 And they said unto him, At Bethlehem in Judea: for so it is written
by the Prophet,
6 And thou Bethlehem in the land of Judah, art not the least among
the Princes of Judah: For out of thee shall come the governor that shall
feed my people Israel.
7 Then Herod privily called the Wisemen, and diligently
inquired of them the time of the star that appeared,
8 And sent them to Bethlehem, saying, Go, and search diligently for
the babe: and when ye have found him, bring me word again, that I may
come also, and worship him.
9 So when they had heard the King, they departed: and lo, the star
which they had seen in the East, went before them, till it came, and
stood over the place where the babe was.
10 And when they saw the star, they rejoiced with an exceeding great
11 And went into the house, and found the babe with Mary his mother,
and fell down, and worshipped him, and opened their treasures, and
presented unto him gifts, even gold, and frankincense, and myrrh.
12 And after they were warned of God in a dream, that they should not
go again to Herod, they returned into their country another way.
13 After their departure, behold the Angel of the Lord appeareth to
Joseph in a dream, saying, Arise, and take the babe and his mother, and
flee into Egypt, and be there till I bring thee word: for Herod will
seek the babe, to destroy him.
14 So he arose and took the babe and his mother by night, and
departed into Egypt,
15 And was there unto the death of Herod, that it might be fulfilled,
which was spoken of the Lord by the Prophet, saying, Out of Egypt have I
called my son.
16 Then Herod, seeing that he was mocked of the Wisemen, was
exceeding wroth, and sent forth, and slew all the male children that
were in Bethlehem, and in all the coasts thereof, from two year old and
under, according to the time which he had diligently searched out of the
17 Then was that fulfilled which was spoken by the Prophet Jeremiah,
18 In Ramah was a voice heard, mourning, and weeping and great
lamentation: Rachel weeping for her children, and would not be
comforted, because they were not.
19 And when Herod was dead, behold, an Angel of the Lord appeared in
a dream to Joseph in Egypt,
20 Saying, Arise, and take the babe and his mother, and go into the
land of Israel: for they are dead which sought the babes life.
21 Then he arose up, and took the babe and his mother, and came into
the land of Israel.
22 But when he heard that Archelaus did reign in Judea instead of his
father Herod, he was afraid to go thither: yet after he was warned of
God in a dream, he turned aside into the parts of Galilee,
23 And went and dwelt in a city called Nazareth, that it might be
fulfilled which was spoken by the Prophets, which was, That he
should be called a Nazarite.
1 And in those days, John the Baptist came and preached in the
wilderness of Judea,
2 And said, Repent: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.
3 For this is he of whom it is spoken by the Prophet Isaiah, saying,
The voice of him that cryeth in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of
the Lord: make his paths straight.
4 And this John had his garment of camels hair, and a girdle of a
skin about his loins: his meat was also locusts and wild honey.
5 Then went out to him Jerusalem and all Judea, and all the region
round about Jordan.
6 And they were baptized of him in Jordan, confessing their sins.
7 Now when he saw many of the Pharisees, and of the Sadducees come to
his baptism, he said unto them, O generations of vipers, who hath
forewarned you to flee from the anger to come?
8 Bring forth therefore fruits worthy amendment of life.
9 And think not to say with yourselves, We have Abraham to our
father: for I say unto you, that God is able of these stones to raise up
children unto Abraham.
10 And now also is the axe put to the root of the trees: therefore
every tree, which bringeth not forth good fruit, is hewn down,
and cast into the fire.
11 Indeed I baptize you with water to amendment of
life, but he that cometh after me, is mightier than I, whose shoes I am
not worthy to bear: he will baptize you with the Holy Ghost, and with
12 Which hath his fan in his hand, and will make clean his floor, and
gather his wheat into his garner, but will burn up the chaff with
13 Then came Jesus from Galilee to Jordan unto John, to be baptized
14 But John put him back, saying, I have need to be baptized of thee,
and comest thou to me?
15 Then Jesus answering, said to him, Let be now: for thus it
becometh us to fulfill all righteousness. So he suffered him.
16 And Jesus when he was baptized, came straight out of the water.
And lo, the heavens were opened unto him, and John saw the Spirit
of God descending like a dove, and lighting upon him.
17 And lo, a voice came from heaven, saying, This is my
beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.
1 Then was Jesus led aside of the Spirit into the wilderness, to be
tempted of the devil.
2 And when he had fasted forty days, and forty nights, he was
3 Then came to him the tempter, and said, If thou be the Son of God,
command that these stones be made bread.
4 But he answering, said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread
only, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.
5 Then the devil took him up into the Holy City, and set him on a
pinnacle of the temple,
6 And said unto him, If thou be the Son of God, cast thyself down:
for it is written, that he will give his Angels charge over thee, and
with their hands they shall lift thee up, lest at any time you shouldest
dash thy foot against a stone.
7 Jesus said unto him, It is written again, Thou shalt not tempt the
Lord thy God.
8 Again the devil took him up into an exceeding high mountain, and
showed him all the kingdoms of the world, and the glory of them,
9 And said to him, All these will I give thee, if thou wilt fall
down, and worship me.
10 Then said Jesus unto him, Avoid Satan: for it is written, Thou
shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.
11 Then the devil left him: and behold, the Angels came, and
ministered unto him.
12 And when Jesus had heard that John was delivered up, he returned
13 And leaving Nazareth, went and dwelt in Capernaum, which is near
the sea in the borders of Zebulon and Naphtali,
14 That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Isaiah the Prophet,
15 The land of Zebulon, and the land of Naphtali by the way of
the sea, beyond Jordan, Galilee of the Gentiles:
16 The people which sat in darkness, saw great light: and to them
which sat in the region and shadow of death, light is risen up.
17 From that time Jesus began to preach, and to say, Amend your
lives: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.
18 And Jesus walking by the sea of Galilee, saw two brethren,
Simon, which was called Peter, and Andrew his brother, casting a net
into the sea (for they were fishers.)
19 And he said unto them, Follow me, and I will make you fishers of
20 And they straightway leaving the nets, followed him.
21 And when he was gone forth from thence, he saw two other brethren,
James the son of Zebedee, and John his brother in a ship with
Zebedee their father, mending their nets, and he called them.
22 And they without tarrying, leaving the ship and their father,
23 So Jesus went about all Galilee, teaching in their Synagogues, and
preaching the Gospel of the kingdom, and healing every sickness and
every disease among the people.
24 And his fame spread abroad through all Syria: and they brought
unto him all sick people, that were taken with divers diseases and
gripings, and them that were possessed with devils, and those which were
lunatic, and those that had the palsy: and he healed them.
25 And there followed him great multitudes out of Galilee, and
Decapolis, and Jerusalem, and Judea, and from beyond Jordan.
1 And when he saw the multitude, he went up into a mountain: and when
he was set, his disciples came to him.
2 And he opened his mouth and taught them, saying,
3 Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of
4 Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted.
5 Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth.
6 Blessed are they which hunger and thirst for righteousness:
for they shall be filled.
7 Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy.
8 Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God.
9 Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the
children of God.
10 Blessed are they which suffer persecution for righteousness
sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
11 Blessed are ye when men revile you, and persecute you, and
say all manner of evil against you for my sake, falsely.
12 Rejoice and be glad, for great is your reward in heaven: for so
persecuted they the Prophets which were before you.
13 Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savor,
wherewith shall it be salted? It is thenceforth good for nothing, but to
be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men.
14 Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill,
cannot be hid.
15 Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a
candlestick, and it
giveth light unto all that are in the house.
16 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good
works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.
17 Think not that I am come to destroy the Law, or the Prophets. I am
not come to destroy them, but to fulfill them.
18 For Truly I say unto you, Till heaven, and earth perish, one iota,
or one tittle of the Law shall not escape, till all things be fulfilled.
19 Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments,
and teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven:
but whosoever shall observe and teach them, the same shall be
called great in the kingdom of heaven.
20 For I say unto you, except your righteousness exceed the
righteousness of the Scribes and Pharisees, ye shall not enter into
the kingdom of heaven.
21 Ye have heard that it was said unto them of the old time, Thou
shalt not kill: for whosoever killeth, shall be culpable of judgment.
22 But I say unto you, whosoever is angry with his brother
unadvisedly, shall be culpable of judgment. And whosoever saith unto his
brother, Raca, shall be worthy to be punished by the Council. And
whosoever shall say, Fool, shall be worthy to be punished with hell
23 If then thou bring thy gift to the altar, and there rememberest
that thy brother hath ought against thee,
24 Leave there thine offering before the altar, and go thy way: first
be reconciled to thy brother, and then come and offer thy gift.
25 Agree with thine adversary quickly, whiles thou art in the way
with him, lest thine adversary deliver thee to the Judge, and the Judge
deliver thee to the sergeant, and thou be cast into
26 Verily I say unto thee, Thou shalt not come out thence, till thou
hast paid the utmost farthing.
27 Ye have heard that it was said to them of old time, Thou shalt
not commit adultery.
28 But I say unto you, that whosoever looketh on a woman to lust
after her, hath committed adultery with her already in his heart.
29 Wherefore if thy right eye cause thee to offend, pluck it out, and
cast it from thee: for better it is for thee, that one of thy members
perish, then that thy whole body should be cast into hell.
30 Also if thy right hand make thee to offend, cut it off, and cast
it from thee: for better it is for thee that one of thy members perish,
then that thy whole body should be cast into hell.
31 It hath been said also, Whosoever shall put away his wife, let him
give her a testimonial of divorcement.
32 But I say unto you, whosoever shall put away his wife (except it
be for fornication) causeth her to commit adultery: and whosoever shall
marry her that is divorced, committeth adultery.
33 Again, ye have heard that it was said to them of old time, Thou
shalt not forswear thyself, but shalt perform thine oaths to the Lord.
34 But I say unto you, Swear not at all, neither by heaven, for it is
the throne of God:
35 Nor yet by the earth: for it is his footstool: neither by
Jerusalem: for it is the city of the great King.
36 Neither shalt thou swear by thine head, because thou canst not
make one hair white or black.
37 But let your communication be Yea, yea: Nay, nay. For
whatsoever is more than these, cometh of evil.
38 Ye have heard that it hath been said, An eye for an eye, and a
tooth for a tooth.
39 But I say unto you, Resist not evil: but whosoever shall smite
thee on thy right cheek, turn to him the other also.
40 And if any man will sue thee at the law, and take away thy coat,
let him have thy cloak also.
41 And whosoever will compel thee to go a mile, go with him
42 Give to him that asketh, and from him that would borrow of thee,
turn not away.
43 Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy
neighbor, and hate thine enemy.
44 But I say unto you, Love your enemies: bless them that curse you:
do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which hurt you, and
45 That ye may be the children of your father that is in heaven: for
he maketh his sun to arise on the evil, and the good, and sendeth rain
on the just, and unjust.
46 For if ye love them, which love you, what reward shall you have?
Do not the Publicans even the same?
47 And if ye be friendly to your brethren only, what singular
thing do ye? do not even the Publicans likewise?
48 Ye shall therefore be perfect, as your Father which is in heaven,
1 Take heed that ye give not your alms before men, to be seen of
them, or else ye shall have no reward of your Father which is in heaven.
2 Therefore when thou givest thine alms, thou shalt not make a
trumpet to be blown before thee, as the hypocrites do in the Synagogues
and in the streets, to be praised of men. Verily I say unto
you, they have their reward.
3 But when thou doest thine alms, let not thy left hand know what thy
right hand doeth,
4 That thine alms may be in secret, and thy Father that seeth in
secret, he will reward thee openly.
5 And when thou prayest, be not as the hypocrites: for they love to
stand, and pray in the Synagogues, and in the corners of the streets,
because they would be seen of men. Verily I say unto you, they have
6 But when thou prayest, enter into thy chamber and when thou hast
shut thy door, pray unto thy Father which is in secret, and thy Father
which seeth in secret, shall reward thee openly.
7 Also when ye pray, use no vain repetitions as the heathen: for they
think to be heard for their much babbling.
8 Be ye not like them therefore: for your Father knoweth whereof ye
have need, before ye ask of him.
9 After this manner therefore pray ye, Our father which art in
heaven, hallowed be thy Name.
10 Thy Kingdom come. Thy will be done even in earth, as it is
11 Give us this day our daily bread.
12 And forgive us our debts, as we also forgive our debtors.
13 And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: for
thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory forever, Amen.
14 For if ye do forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father
will also forgive you.
15 But if ye do not forgive men their trespasses, no more will your
father forgive you your trespass.
16 Moreover, when ye fast, look not sour as the hypocrites: for they
disfigure their faces, that they might seem unto men to fast. Verily I
say unto you, that they have their reward.
17 But when thou fastest, anoint thine head, and wash thy face,
18 That thou seem not unto men to fast, but unto thy Father which is
in secret: and thy Father which seeth in secret, will reward thee
19 Lay not up treasures for yourselves upon the earth, where the
moth and canker corrupt, and where thieves dig through, and steal.
20 But lay up treasures for yourselves in heaven, where neither the
moth nor canker corrupteth, and where thieves neither dig through, nor
21 For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.
22 The light of the body is the eye: if then thine eye be single,
thy whole body shall be light.
23 But if thine eye be wicked, then all thy body shall be dark.
Wherefore if the light that is in thee, be darkness, how great is that
24 No man can serve two masters: for either he shall hate the one,
and love the other, or else he shall lean to the one, and despise the
other. Ye cannot serve God and riches.
25 Therefore I say unto you, be not careful for your life, what ye
shall eat, or what ye shall drink: nor yet for your body, what ye shall
put on. Is not the life more worth than meat? and the body than raiment?
26 Behold the fowls of the heaven: for they sow not, neither reap,
nor carry into the barns: yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye
not much better than they?
27 Which of you by taking care, is able to add one cubit unto his
28 And why care ye for raiment? Learn, how the lilies of the field do
grow: they labor not, neither spin:
29 Yet I say unto you, that even Solomon in all his glory was not
arrayed like one of these.
30 Wherefore if God so clothe the grass of the field which is today,
and tomorrow is cast into the oven, shall he not do much more
unto you, O ye of little faith?
31 Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or what
shall we drink? or where with shall we be clothed?
32 (For after all these things seek the Gentiles) for your heavenly
Father knoweth, that ye have need of all these things.
33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness, and
all these things shall be ministered unto you.
34 Care not then for the morrow: for the morrow shall care for
itself: the day hath enough with his own grief.
1 Judge not, that ye be not judged.
2 For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged, and with what
measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again.
3 And why seest thou the mote, that is in thy brothers eye, and
perceivest not the beam that is in thine own eye?
4 Or how sayest thou to thy brother, Suffer me to cast out the mote
out of thine eye, and behold a beam is in thine own eye?
5 Hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye, and then
shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brothers eye.
6 Give ye not that which is Holy, to dogs, neither cast ye your
pearls before swine, lest they tread them under their feet, and turning
again, all to rent you.
7 Ask, and it shall be given you: seek, and ye shall find: knock,
and it shall be opened unto you.
8 For whosoever asketh, receiveth: and he, that seeketh, findeth: and
to him that knocketh, it shall be opened.
9 For what man is there among you, which if his son ask him bread,
would give him a stone?
10 Or if he ask fish, will he give him a serpent?
11 If ye then, which are evil, can give to your children good gifts,
how much more shall your Father which is in heaven, give good things to
them that ask him?
12 Therefore whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, even so
do ye to them: for this is the Law and the Prophets.
13 Enter in at the straight gate: for it is the wide gate, and
broad way that leadeth to destruction: and many there be which go in
14 Because the gate is straight, and the way narrow that leadeth unto
life, and few there be that find it.
15 Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing,
but inwardly they are ravening wolves.
16 Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of
thorns? or figs of thistles?
17 So every good tree bringeth forth good fruit, and a corrupt tree
bringeth forth evil fruit.
18 A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit: neither can a corrupt
tree bring forth good fruit.
19 Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit, is hewn down, and
cast into the fire.
20 Therefore by their fruits ye shall know them.
21 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into
the kingdom of heaven, but he that doeth my Fathers will which is in
22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not by thy
Name prophesied? and by thy name cast out devils? and by thy name done
many great works?
23 And then will I profess to them, I never knew you: depart from me,
ye that work iniquity.
24 Whosoever then heareth of me these words, and doeth the same, I
will liken him to a wise man, which hath builded his house on a rock:
25 And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and
beat upon that house, and it fell not: for it was grounded on a rock.
26 But whosoever heareth these my words, and doeth them not, shall be
likened unto a foolish man, which hath builded his house upon the sand:
27 And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and
beat upon that house, and it fell, and the fall thereof was great.
28 And it came to pass, when Jesus had ended these words, the
people were astonished at his doctrine.
29 For he taught them as one having authority, and not as the
1 Now when he was come down from the mountain, great multitudes
2 And lo, there came a Leper and worshipped him, saying, Master, if
thou wilt, thou canst make me clean.
3 And Jesus putting forth his hand, touched him, saying, I will, be
thou clean: and immediately his leprosy was cleansed.
4 Then Jesus said unto him, See thou tell no man, but go, and
show thyself unto the Priest, and offer the gift that Moses commanded,
for a witness to them.
5 When Jesus was entered into Capernahum, there came unto him a
Centurion, beseeching him,
6 And said, Master, my servant lieth sick at home of the palsy, and
is grievously pained.
7 And Jesus said unto him, I will come and heal him.
8 But the Centurion answered, saying, Master, I am not worthy that
thou shouldest come under my roof: but speak the word only, and my
servant shall be healed.
9 For I am a man also under the authority of another, and have
soldiers under me: and I say to one, Go: and he goeth, and to another,
Come: and he cometh, and to my servant, Do this, and he doeth it.
10 When Jesus heard that, he marveled, and said to them that
followed him, Verily, I say unto you, I have not found so great
faith, even in Israel.
11 But I say unto you, that many shall come from the East and West,
and shall sit down with Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob in the kingdom of
12 And the children of the kingdom shall be cast out into utter
darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
13 Then Jesus said unto the Centurion, Go thy way, and as thou hast
believed, so be it unto thee. And his servant was healed the same hour.
14 And when Jesus came to Peters house, he saw his wife's mother
laid down, and sick of a fever.
15 And he touched her hand, and the fever left her: so she arose, and
ministered unto them.
16 When the Even was come, they brought unto him many that were
possessed with devils: and he cast out the spirits with his word,
and healed all that were sick,
17 That it might be fulfilled, which was spoken by Isaiah the
Prophet, saying, He took our infirmities, and bare our
18 And when Jesus saw great multitudes of people about him, he
commanded them to go over the water.
19 Then came there a certain Scribe, and said unto him, Master, I
will follow thee whethersoever thou goest.
20 But Jesus said unto him, The foxes have holes, and the birds of
the heaven have nests, but the Son of man hath not whereon to rest his
21 And another of his disciples said unto him, Master, suffer me
first to go, and bury my father.
22 But Jesus said unto him, Follow me, and let the dead bury their
23 And when he was entered into the ship, his disciples followed
24 And behold, there arose a great tempest in the sea, so that
the ship was covered with waves: but he was asleep.
25 Then his disciples came, and awoke him, saying, Master, save us:
26 And he said unto them, Why are ye fearful, O ye of little faith?
Then he arose, and rebuked the winds and the sea: and so there
was a great calm.
27 And the men marveled, saying, What man is this, that both the
winds and the sea obey him!
28 And when he was come to the other side, into the country of the
Gerasenes, there met him two possessed with devils, which came out of
the graves very fierce, so that no man might go by that way.
29 And behold, they cried out, saying, Jesus the Son of God, what
have we to do with thee? Art thou come hither to torment us before the
30 Now there was afar off from them, a great heard of swine feeding.
31 And the devils besought him, saying, If thou cast us out, suffer
us to go into the herd of swine.
32 And he said unto them, Go. So they went out, and departed into the
herd of swine: and behold, the whole herd of swine was carried with
violence from a steep down place in the sea, and died in the water.
33 Then the herdsmen fled: and when they were come into the city,
they told all things, and what was become of them that were possessed
with the devils.
34 And behold all the city came out, to meet Jesus: and when they saw
him, they besought him to depart out of their coasts.
1 Then he entered into a ship, and passed over, and came into his own
2 And lo, they brought to him a man sick of the palsy, lying on a
bed. And Jesus seeing their faith, said to the sick of the palsy, Son,
be of good comfort: thy sins are forgiven thee.
3 And behold, certain of the Scribes said with themselves, This man
4 But when Jesus saw their thoughts, he said, Wherefore think ye evil
things in your hearts?
5 For whether is it easier to say, Thy sins are forgiven thee, or to
say, Arise, and walk?
6 And that ye may know that the Son of man hath authority in earth to
forgive sins, (then said he unto the sick of the palsy,) Arise, take up
thy bed, and go to thine house.
7 And he arose, and departed to his own house.
8 So when the multitude saw it, they marveled, and glorified God,
which had given such authority to men.
9 And as Jesus passed forth from thence, he saw a man sitting at
the receipt of custom named Matthew, and said to him, Follow me. And he
arose, and followed him.
10 And it came to pass, as Jesus sat at meat in his house,
behold, many Publicans and sinners, that came thither, sat down
at the table with Jesus and his disciples.
11 And when the Pharisees saw that, they said to his disciples, Why
eateth your master with Publicans and sinners?
12 Now when Jesus heard it, he said unto them, The whole need not a
Physician, but they that are sick.
13 But go ye and learn what this is, I will have mercy, and not
sacrifice: for I am not come to call the righteous, but the sinners to
14 Then came the disciples of John to him, saying, Why do we and
the Pharisees fast oft, and thy disciples fast not?
15 And Jesus said unto them, Can the children of the marriage chamber
mourn as long as the bridegroom is with them? But the days will come,
when the bridegroom shall be taken from them, and then shall they fast.
16 Moreover no man pieceth an old garment with a piece of new cloth:
for that that should fill it up, taketh away from the garment, and the
breach is worse.
17 Neither do they put new wine into old vessels: for then the
vessels would break, and the wine would be spilled, and the vessels
should perish: but they put new wine into new vessels, and so are
18 While he thus spake unto them, behold, there came a certain
ruler, and worshipped him, saying, My daughter is now deceased, but come
and lay thine hand on her, and she shall live.
19 And Jesus arose and followed him with his disciples.
20 (And behold a woman which was diseased with an issue of blood
twelve years, came behind him, and touched the hem of his garment.
21 For she said in herself, If I may touch but his garment only, I
shall be whole.
22 Then Jesus turned himself about, and seeing her, did say,
Daughter, be of good comfort: thy faith hath made thee whole. And the
woman was made whole at that hour.)
23 Now when Jesus came into the Rulers house, and saw the minstrels
and the multitude making noise,
24 He said unto them, Get you hence: for the maid is not dead, but
sleepeth. And they laughed him to scorn.
25 And when the multitude were put forth, he went in and took her by
the hand, and the maid arose.
26 And this bruit went throughout all that land.
27 And as Jesus departed thence, two blind men followed him, crying,
and saying, O son of David, have mercy upon us.
28 And when he was come into the house, the blind came to him, and
Jesus said unto them, Believe ye that I am able to do this? And they
said unto him, Yea, Lord.
29 Then touched he their eyes, saying, According to your faith be it
30 And their eyes were opened, and Jesus charged them, saying, See
that no man know it.
31 But when they were departed, they spread abroad his fame
throughout all that land.
32 And as they went out, behold, they brought to him a dumb man
possessed with a devil.
33 And when the devil was cast out, the dumb spake: then the
multitude marveled, saying, The like was never seen in Israel.
34 But the Pharisees said, He casteth out devils, through the prince
35 And Jesus went about all cities and towns, teaching in their
Synagogues, and preaching the Gospel of the kingdom, and healing every
sickness and every disease among the people.
36 But when he saw the multitude, he had compassion upon them,
because they were dispersed, and scattered abroad, as sheep having no
37 Then said he to his disciples, Surely the harvest is great,
but the laborers are few.
38 Wherefore pray the Lord of the harvest, that he would send forth
laborers into his harvest.
1 And he called his twelve disciples unto him, and gave them power
against unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to heal every sickness,
and every disease.
2 Now the names of the twelve Apostles are these. The first is
Simon, called Peter, and Andrew his brother: James the son
of Zebedee, and John his brother.
3 Philip and Bartholomew: Thomas, and Matthew that Publican: James
the son of Alphaeus, and Lebbaeus whose surname was Thaddaeus:
4 Simon the Canaanite, and Judas Iscariot, who also betrayed him.
5 These twelve did Jesus send forth, and commanded them, saying, Go
not into the way of the Gentiles, and into the cities of the Samaritans
enter ye not:
6 But go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel.
7 And as ye go, preach, saying, The kingdom of heaven is at hand.
8 Heal the sick: cleanse the lepers: raise up the dead: cast out the
devils. Freely ye have received, freely give.
9 Possess not gold, nor silver, nor money in your girdles,
10 Nor a script for the journey, neither two coats, neither shoes,
nor a staff: for the workman is worthy of his meat.
11 And into whatsoever city or town ye shall come, inquire who is
worthy in it, and there abide till ye go thence.
12 And when ye come into a house, salute the same.
13 And if the house be worthy, let your peace come upon it: but if it
be not worthy, let your peace return to you.
14 And whosoever shall not receive you, nor hear your words, when ye
depart out of that house, or that city, shake off the dust of your feet.
15 Truly I say unto you, it shall be easier for them of the land of
Sodom and Gomorrah in the Day of Judgment, then for that city.
16 Behold, I send you as sheep in the midst of wolves: be ye
therefore wise as serpents, and innocent as doves.
17 But beware of men, for they will deliver you up to the Councils,
and will scourge you in their Synagogues.
18 And ye shall be brought to the governors and Kings for my sake, in
witness to them, and to the Gentiles.
19 But when they deliver you up, take no thought how or what ye shall
speak: for it shall be given you in that hour, what ye shall say.
20 For it is not ye that speak, but the spirit of your father which
speaketh in you.
21 And the brother shall betray the brother to death, and the father
the son, and the children shall rise against their parents, and
shall cause them to die.
22 And ye shall be hated of all men for my Name: but he that endureth
to the end, he shall be saved.
23 And when they persecute you in this city, flee into another: for
verily I say unto you, ye shall not finish all the cities of
Israel, till the Son of man be come.
24 The disciple is not above his master, nor the servant above his
25 It is enough for the disciple to be as his master is, and
the servant as his Lord. If they have called the master of the house
Beelzebub, how much more them of his household?
26 Fear them not therefore: for there is nothing covered, that shall
not be disclosed, nor hid, that shall not be known.
27 What I tell you in darkness, that speak ye in light: and what ye
hear in the ear, that preach ye on the houses.
28 And fear ye not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill
the soul: but rather fear him, which is able to destroy both soul and
body in hell.
29 Are not two sparrows sold for a farthing, and one of them shall
not fall on the ground without your Father?
30 Yea, and all the hairs of your head are numbered.
31 Fear ye not therefore, ye are of more value than many sparrows.
32 Whosoever therefore shall confess me before men, him will I
confess also before my Father, which is in heaven.
33 But whosoever shall deny me before me, him will I also deny before
my Father, which is in heaven.
34 Think not that I am come to send peace into the earth: I came not
to send peace, but the sword.
35 For I am come to set a man at variance against his father, and the
daughter against her mother, and the daughter in law against her mother
36 And a mans enemies shall be they of his own household.
37 He that loveth father or mother more than me, is not worthy of me.
And he that loveth son, or daughter more than me, is not worthy of me.
38 And he that taketh not his cross, and followeth after me, is not
worthy of me.
39 He that will save his life, shall lose it, and he that loseth his
life for my sake, shall save it.
40 He that receiveth you, receiveth me: and he that receiveth me,
receiveth him that hath sent me.
41 He that receiveth a Prophet in the name of a Prophet, shall
receive a Prophets reward: and he that receiveth a righteous man, in
the name of a righteous man, shall receive the reward of a righteous
42 And whosoever shall give unto one of these little ones to drink a
cup of cold water only, in the name of a Disciple, verily I say unto
you, he shall not lose his reward.
1 And it came to pass that when Jesus had made an end of commanding
his twelve disciples, he departed thence to teach and to preach in their
2 And when John heard in the prison the works of Christ, he sent
two of his disciples, and said unto him,
3 Art thou he that should come, or shall we look for another?
4 And Jesus answering, said unto them, Go, and show John, what things
ye have heard and seen.
5 The blind receive sight, and the halt go: the lepers are cleansed,
and the deaf hear: the dead are raised up, and the poor receive the
6 And blessed is he that shall not be offended in me.
7 And as they departed, Jesus began to speak unto the multitude, of
John, What went ye out into the wilderness to see? A reed shaken with
8 But what went ye out to see? A man clothed in soft raiment? Behold,
they that wear soft clothing, are in Kings houses.
9 But what went ye out to see? A Prophet? Yea, I say unto you, and
more than a Prophet.
10 For this is he of whom it is written, Behold, I send my messenger
before thy face, which shall prepare thy way before thee.
11 Verily I say unto you, among them which are begotten of women,
arose there not a greater than John Baptist: notwithstanding, he that is
the least in the kingdom of heaven, is greater than he.
12 And from the time of John Baptist hither to, the kingdom of heaven
suffereth violence, and the violent take it by force.
13 For all the Prophets and the Law prophesied unto John.
14 And if ye will receive it, this is Elijah, which was to come.
15 He that hath ears to hear, let him hear.
16 But whereunto shall I liken this generation? It is like unto
little children which sit in the markets, and call unto their fellows,
17 And say, We have piped unto you, and ye have not danced, we have
mourned unto you, and ye have not lamented.
18 For John came neither eating nor drinking, and they say, He hath a
19 The son of man came eating and drinking, and they say, Behold a
glutton and a drinker of wine, a friend unto Publicans and sinners: but
wisdom is justified of her children.
20 Then began he to upbraid the cities, wherein most of his great
works were done, because they repented not.
21 Woe be to thee, Chorazin: Woe be to thee, Bethsaida:
for if the great works, which were done in you, had been done in Tyre
and Sidon, they had repented long ago in sackcloth and ashes.
22 But I say to you, It shall be easier for Tyre and Sidon at the Day
of Judgment, than for you.
23 And thou, Capernaum, which art lifted up unto heaven, shalt be
brought down to hell: for if the great works, which have been done in
thee, had been done among them of Sodom, they had remained to this day.
24 But I say unto you, that it shall be easier for them of the land
of Sodom in the Day of Judgment, than for thee.
25 At that time Jesus answered, and said, I give thee thanks, O
Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because thou hast hid these things
from the wise and men of understanding, and hast opened them unto babes.
26 It is so, O Father, because thy good pleasure was such.
27 All things are given unto me of my Father: and no man knoweth the
Son, but the Father: neither knoweth any man the Father, but the Son,
and he to whom the Son will reveal him.
28 Come unto me, all ye that are weary and laden, and I will ease
29 Take my yoke on you, and learn of me, that I am meek and lowly in
heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.
30 For my yoke is easy, and my burden light.
1 At that time Jesus went on a Sabbath day through the corn, and his
disciples were an hungred, and began to pluck the ears of corn
and to eat.
2 And when the Pharisees saw it, they said unto him, Behold, thy
disciples do that which is not lawful to do upon the Sabbath.
3 But he said unto them, Have ye not read what David did when he was
an hungred, and they that were with him?
4 How he entered into the house of God, and ate the showbread, which
was not lawful for him to eat, neither for them which were with him, but
only for the Priests?
5 Or have ye not read in the Law, how that on the Sabbath days the
Priests in the Temple break the Sabbath, and are blameless?
6 But I say unto you, that here is one greater than the Temple.
7 Wherefore if ye knew what this is, I will have mercy and not
sacrifice, ye would not have condemned the innocents.
8 For the son of man is Lord, even of the Sabbath.
9 And he departed thence, and went into their Synagogue:
10 And behold, there was a man which had his hand dried up.
And they asked him, saying, Is it lawful to heal upon a Sabbath day?
that they might accuse him.
11 And he said unto them, What man shall there be among you, that
shall have a sheep, and if it fall on a Sabbath day into a pit, will he
not take it and lift it out?
12 How much more then is a man better than a sheep? therefore, it is
lawful to do well on a Sabbath day.
13 Then said he to the man, Stretch forth thine hand. And he
stretched it forth, and it was made whole as the other.
14 Then the Pharisees went out, and consulted against him, how they
might destroy him.
15 But when Jesus knew it, he departed thence, and great multitudes
followed him, and he healed them all,
16 And charged them that they should not make him known,
17 That it might be fulfilled, which was spoken by Isaiah the
18 Behold my servant whom I have chosen, my beloved in whom my soul
delighteth: I will put my Spirit on him, and he shall show judgment to
19 He shall not strive, nor cry, neither shall any man hear his voice
in the streets.
20 A bruised reed shall he not break, and smoking flax shall
he not quench, till he bring forth judgment unto victory.
21 And in his Name shall the Gentiles trust.
22 Then was brought to him one, possessed with a devil, both
blind, and dumb, and he healed him, so that he which was
blind and dumb, both spake and saw.
23 And all the people were amazed, and said, Is not this the son of
24 But when the Pharisees heard it, they said, This man casteth the
devils no otherwise out, but through Beelzebub the prince of devils.
25 But Jesus knew their thoughts, and said to them, Every kingdom
divided against itself, shall be brought to naught: and every city or
house, divided against itself, shall not stand.
26 So if Satan cast out Satan, he is divided against himself: how
shall then his kingdom endure?
27 Also if I through Beelzebub cast out devils, by whom do your
children cast them out? Therefore they shall be your judges.
28 But if I cast out devils by the Spirit of God, then is the kingdom
of God come unto you.
29 Else how can a man enter into a strong mans house and spoil his
goods, except he first bind the strong man, and then spoil his house.
30 He that is not with me, is against me: and he that gathereth not
with me, scattereth.
31 Wherefore I say unto you, every sin and blasphemy shall be
forgiven unto men: but the blasphemy against the Holy Ghost shall
not be forgiven unto men.
32 And whosoever shall speak a word against the Son of man, it shall
be forgiven him: but whosoever shall speak against the Holy Ghost, it
shall not be forgiven him, neither in this world nor in the world to
33 Either make the tree good, and his fruit good: or else make the
tree evil, and his fruit evil: for the tree is known by the fruit.
34 O generations of vipers, how can you speak good things, when ye
are evil? For of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh.
35 A good man out of the good treasure of his heart bringeth forth
good things: and an evil man out of an evil treasure, bringeth forth
36 But I say unto you, that of every idle word that men shall speak,
they shall give account thereof at the Day of Judgment.
37 For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou
shalt be condemned.
38 Then answered certain of the Scribes and of the Pharisees,
saying, Master, we would see a sign of thee.
39 But he answered, and said to them, An evil and adulterous
generation seeketh a sign, but no sign shall be given unto it, save the
sign of the Prophet Jonah.
40 For as Jonah was three days, and three nights in the whales
belly: so shall the Son of man be three days and three nights in the
heart of the earth.
41 The men of Nineveh shall rise in judgment with this generation,
and condemn it: for they repented at the preaching of Jonah: and behold,
a greater than Jonah is here.
42 The Queen of the South shall rise in judgment with this
generation, and shall condemn it: for she came from the utmost parts of
the earth to hear the Wisdom of Solomon: and behold a greater than
Solomon is here.
43 Now when the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walketh
throughout dry places, seeking rest, and findeth none.
44 Then he saith, I will return into mine house, from whence I came:
and when he is come, he findeth it empty, swept and garnished.
45 Then he goeth, and taketh unto him seven other spirits worse
than himself, and they enter in, and dwell there: and the end of that
man is worse than the beginning. Even so shall it be with this wicked
46 While he yet spake to the multitude, behold, his mother, and his
brethren stood without, desiring to speak with him.
47 Then one said unto him, Behold, thy mother and thy brethren stand
without, desiring to speak with thee.
48 But he answered, and said to him that told him, Who is my mother?
and who are my brethren?
49 And he stretched forth his hand toward his disciples, and said,
Behold my mother and my brethren.
50 For whosoever shall do my Fathers will which is in heaven, the
same is my brother and sister and mother.
1 The same day went Jesus out of the house, and sat by the seaside.
2 And great multitudes resorted unto him, so that he went into a
ship, and sat down: and the whole multitude stood on the shore.
3 Then he spake many things to them in parables, saying, Behold, a
sower went forth to sow.
4 And as he sowed, some fell by the wayside, and the fowls came and
devoured them up.
5 And some fell upon stony ground, where they had not much earth, and
soon they sprung up, because they had no depth of earth.
6 And when the sun rose up, they were parched, and for lack of
rooting, withered away.
7 And some fell among thorns, and the thorns sprung up, and choked
8 Some again fell in good ground, and brought forth fruit, one
corn an hundred fold, some sixty fold, and another thirty fold.
9 He that hath ears to hear, let him hear.
10 Then the disciples came, and said to him, Why speakest thou to
them in parables?
11 And he answered and said unto them, Because it is given unto you,
to know the secrets of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it is not
12 For whosoever hath, to him shall be given, and he shall have
abundance: but whosoever hath not, from him shall be taken away, even
that he hath.
13 Therefore speak I to them in parables, because they seeing, do not
see: and hearing, they hear not, neither understand.
14 So in them is fulfilled the prophecy of Isaiah, which prophecy
saith, By hearing, ye shall hear, and shall not understand, and seeing
ye shall see, and shall not perceive.
15 For this peoples heart is waxed fat, and their ears are dull of
hearing, and with their eyes they have winked, lest they should see with
their eyes, and hear with their ears, and should understand with their
hearts, and should return, that I might heal them.
16 But blessed are your eyes, for they see: and your ears, for
17 For verily I say unto you, that many Prophets, and righteous men
have desired to see those things which ye see, and have not seen them,
and to hear those things which ye hear, and have not heard them.
18 Hear ye therefore the parable of the sower.
19 Whensoever a man heareth the word of the kingdom, and
understandeth it not, the evil one cometh, and catcheth away that which
was sown in his heart: and this is he which hath received the seed by
the way side.
20 And he that received seed in the stony ground, is he which heareth
the word, and incontinently with joy receiveth it,
21 Yet hath he no root in himself, and endureth but a season: for as
soon as tribulation or persecution cometh because of the word, by and by
he is offended.
22 And he that receiveth the seed among thorns, is he that heareth
the word: but the care of this world, and the deceitfulness of riches
choke the word, and he is made unfruitful.
23 But he that receiveth the seed in the good ground, is he that
heareth the word, and understandeth it, which also beareth fruit, and
bringeth forth, some an hundred fold, some sixty fold, and some thirty
24 Another parable put he forth unto them, saying, The kingdom of
heaven is like unto a man which sowed good seed in his field.
25 But while men slept, there came his enemy, and sowed tares among
the wheat, and went his way.
26 And when the blade was sprung up, and brought forth fruit, then
appeared the tares also.
27 Then came the servants of the householder, and said unto him,
Master, sowest not thou good seed in thy field? from whence then hath it
28 And he said to them, The envious man hath done this. Then the
servants said unto him, Wilt thou then that we go and gather them up?
29 But he said, Nay, lest while ye go about to gather the tares, ye
pluck up also with them the wheat.
30 Let both grow together until the harvest, and in time of harvest I
will say to the reapers, Gather ye first the tares, and bind them in
sheaves to burn them: but gather the wheat into my barn.
31 Another parable he put forth unto them, saying, The kingdom of
heaven is like unto a grain of mustard seed, which a man taketh and
soweth in his field:
32 Which indeed is the least of all seeds: but when it is grown, it
is the greatest among herbs, and it is a tree, so that the birds of
heaven come and build in the branches thereof.
33 Another parable spake he to them, The kingdom of heaven is like
unto leaven, which a woman taketh and hideth in three pecks of meal,
till all be leavened.
34 All these things spake Jesus unto the multitude in parables, and
without parables spake he not to them,
35 That it might be fulfilled, which was spoken by the Prophet,
saying, I will open my mouth in parables, and will utter the things
which have been kept secret from the foundation of the world.
36 Then sent Jesus the multitude away, and went into the house. And
his disciples came unto him, saying, Declare unto us the parable of the
tares of the field.
37 Then answered he, and said to them, He that soweth the good seed,
is the Son of man.
38 And the field is the world, and the good seed, they are the
children of the kingdom, and the tares are the children of the wicked,
39 And the enemy that soweth them, is the devil, and the harvest is
the end of the world, and the reapers be the Angels.
40 As then the tares are gathered and burned in the fire, so shall it
be in the end of this world.
41 The Son of man shall send forth his Angels, and they shall gather
out of his kingdom all things that offend, and them which do iniquity,
42 And shall cast them into a furnace of fire. There shall be wailing
and gnashing of teeth.
43 Then shall the just men shine as the sun in the kingdom of their
Father. He that hath ears to hear, let him hear.
44 Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a treasure hid in the
field, which when a man hath found, he hideth it, and for joy thereof
departeth and selleth all that he hath, and buyeth that field.
45 Again the kingdom of heaven is like to a merchant man, that
seeketh good pearls,
46 Who having found a pearl of great price, went and sold all that he
had, and bought it.
47 Again the kingdom of heaven is like unto a drawnet cast into the
sea, that gathereth of all kinds of things.
48 Which, when it is full, men draw to land, and sit and gather the
good into vessels, and cast the bad away.
49 So shall it be at the end of the world. The Angels shall go forth,
and sever the bad from among the just,
50 And shall cast them into a furnace of fire: there shall be
wailing, and gnashing of teeth.
51 Jesus said unto them, Understand ye all these things? They said
unto him, Yea, Lord.
52 Then said he unto them, Therefore every Scribe which is taught
unto the kingdom of heaven, is like unto an householder, which bringeth
forth out of his treasure things both new and old.
53 And it came to pass, that when Jesus had ended these parables,
he departed thence,
54 And came into his own country, and taught them in their Synagogue,
so that they were astonished, and said, Whence cometh this wisdom and
great works unto this man?
55 Is not this the carpenters son? Is not his mother called Mary,
and his brethren James and Joseph, and Simon and Judas?
56 And are not his sisters all with us? Whence then hath he all these
57 And they were offended with him. Then Jesus said to them, A
Prophet is not without honor, save in his own country, and in his own
58 And he did not many great works there, for their unbeliefs sake.
1 At that time Herod the Tetrarch heard of the fame of Jesus,
2 And said unto his servants, This is John Baptist. He is risen again
from the dead, and therefore great works are wrought by him.
3 For Herod had taken John, and bound him, and put him in prison for
Herodias sake, his brother Philips wife.
4 For John said unto him, It is not lawful for thee to have her.
5 And when he would have put him to death, he feared the multitude,
because they counted him as a Prophet.
6 But when Herod's birthday was kept, the daughter of Herodias danced
before them, and pleased Herod.
7 Wherefore he promised with an oath, that he would give her
whatsoever she would ask.
8 And she being before instructed of her mother, said, Give me here
John Baptists head in a platter.
9 And the King was sorry: nevertheless because of the oath, and them
that sat with him at the table, he commanded it to be given her,
10 And sent, and beheaded John in the prison.
11 And his head was brought in a platter, and given to the maid, and
she brought it unto her mother.
12 And his disciples came, and took up his body, and buried it, and
went, and told Jesus.
13 And when Jesus heard it, he departed thence by ship into a desert
place apart. And when the multitude had heard it, they followed him a
foot out of the cities.
14 And Jesus went forth and saw a great multitude, and was moved with
compassion toward them, and he healed their sick.
15 And when even was come, his disciples came to him, saying, This
is a desert place, and the hour is already past: let the multitude
depart, that they may go into the towns, and buy them vitals.
16 But Jesus said to them, They have no need to go away: give ye them
17 Then said they unto him, We have here but five loaves, and two
18 And he said, Bring them thither to me.
19 And he commanded the multitude to sit down on the grass, and took
the five loaves and the two fishes, and looked up to heaven and blessed,
and brake, and gave the loaves to his disciples, and the disciples to
20 And they did all eat, and were sufficed, and they took up of the
fragments that remained, twelve baskets full.
21 And they that had eaten, were about five thousand men, beside
women and little children.
22 And straightway Jesus compelled his disciples to enter into a
ship, and to go over before him, while he sent the multitude away.
23 And as soon as he had sent the multitude away, he went up into a
mountain alone to pray: and when the evening was come, he was there
24 And the ship was now in the midst of the sea, and was tossed with
waves: for it was a contrary wind.
25 And in the fourth watch of the night, Jesus went unto them,
walking on the sea.
26 And when his disciples saw him walking on the sea, they were
troubled, saying, It is a spirit, and cried out for fear.
27 But straight way Jesus spake unto them, saying, Be of good
comfort. It is I: be not afraid.
28 Then Peter answered him, and said, Master, if it be thou, bid me
come unto thee on the water.
29 And he said, Come. And when Peter was come down out of the ship,
he walked on the water, to go to Jesus.
30 But when he saw a mighty wind, he was afraid: and as he began to
sink, he cried, saying, Master, save me.
31 So immediately Jesus stretched forth his hand, and caught him, and
said to him, O thou of little faith, wherefore didst thou doubt?
32 And as soon as they were come into the ship, the wind ceased.
33 Then they that were in the ship, came and worshipped him, saying,
Of a truth thou art the Son of God.
34 And when they were come over, they came into the land of
35 And when the men of that place knew him, they sent out into all
that country round about, and brought unto him all that were sick,
36 And besought him, that they might touch the hem of his garment
only: and as many as touched it, were made whole.
1 Then came to Jesus the Scribes and Pharisees, which were of
2 Why do thy disciples transgress the tradition of the Elders? for
they wash not their hands when they eat bread.
3 But he answered and said unto them, Why do ye also transgress the
commandment of God by your tradition?
4 For God hath commanded, saying, Honor thy father and mother: and he
that curseth father or mother, let him die the death.
5 But ye say, Whosoever shall say to father or mother, By the gift
that is offered by me, thou mayest have profit,
6 Though he honor not his father, or his mother, shall be free:
thus have ye made the commandment of God of no authority by your
7 O hypocrites, Isaiah prophesied well of you, saying,
8 This people draweth near unto me with their mouth, and honoreth me
with the lips, but their heart is far off from me.
9 But in vain they worship me, teaching for doctrines, mens
10 Then he called the multitude unto him, and said to them, Hear and
11 That which goeth into the mouth, defileth not the man, but that
which cometh out of the mouth, that defileth the man.
12 Then came his disciples, and said unto him, Perceivest thou not,
that the Pharisees are offended in hearing this saying?
13 But he answered and said, Every plant which mine heavenly Father
hath not planted, shall be rooted up.
14 Let them alone, they be the blind leaders of the blind: and if the
blind lead you blind, both shall fall into the ditch.
15 Then answered Peter, and said to him, Declare unto us this
16 Then said Jesus, Are ye yet without understanding?
17 Perceive ye not yet, that whatsoever entereth into the mouth,
goeth into the belly, and is cast out into the draught?
18 But those things which proceed out of the mouth, come from the
heart, and they defile the man.
19 For out of the heart come evil thoughts, murders, adulteries,
fornications, thefts, false testimonies, slanders.
20 These are the things, which defile the man: but to eat with
unwashen hands, defileth not the man.
21 And Jesus went thence, and departed into the coasts of Tyre and
22 And behold, a woman a Canaanite came out of the same coasts, and
cried, saying unto him, Have mercy on me, O Lord, the son of David: my
daughter is miserably vexed with a devil.
23 But he answered her not a word. Then came to him his disciples,
and besought him, saying, Send her away, for she cryeth after us.
24 But he answered, and said, I am not sent, but unto the lost sheep
of the house of Israel.
25 Yet she came and worshipped him, saying, Lord, help me.
26 And he answered, and said, It is not good to take the childrens
bread, and to cast it to whelps.
27 But she said, Truth, Lord: yet indeed the whelps eat of the
crumbs, which fall from their master's table.
28 Then Jesus answered, and said unto her, O woman, great is thy
faith: be it to thee, as thou desirest. And her daughter was made whole
at that hour.
29 So Jesus went away from thence, and came near unto the sea of
Galilee, and went up into a mountain and sat down there.
30 And great multitudes came unto him, having with them, halt, blind,
dumb, maimed and many other, and cast them down at Jesus feet, and he
31 In so much that the multitude wondered, to see the dumb speak, the
maimed whole, the halt to go, and the blind to see: and they glorified
the God of Israel.
32 Then Jesus called his disciples unto him, and said, I have
compassion on this multitude, because they have continued with me
already three days, and have nothing to eat: and I will not let them
depart fasting, lest they faint in the way.
33 And his disciples said unto him, Whence should we get so much
bread in the wilderness, as should suffice so great a multitude!
34 And Jesus said unto them, How many loaves have ye? And they said,
Seven, and a few little fishes.
35 Then he commanded the multitude to sit down on the ground,
36 And took the seven loaves, and the fishes, and gave thanks, and
break them, and gave to his disciples, and the disciples to the
37 And they did all eat, and were sufficed: and they took up of the
fragments that remained, seven baskets full.
38 And they that had eaten, were four thousand men, beside women, and
39 Then Jesus sent away the multitude, and took ship, and came
into the parts of Magdala.
1 Then came the Pharisees and Sadducees, and did tempt him,
desiring him to show them a sign from heaven.
2 But he answered, and said unto them, When it is evening, ye say,
Fair weather: for the sky is red.
3 And in the morning ye say, Today shall be a tempest:
for the sky is red and glowing. O hypocrites, ye can discern the face of
the sky, and can ye not discern the signs of the times?
4 The wicked generation, and adulterous seeketh a sign, and there
shall no sign be given it, but the sign of the Prophet Jonah: so he left
them, and departed.
5 And when his disciples were come to the other side, they had
forgotten to take bread with them.
6 Then Jesus said unto them, Take heed and beware of the leaven of
the Pharisees and Sadducees.
7 And they thought in themselves, saying, It is because we
have brought no bread.
8 But Jesus knowing it, said unto them, O ye of little faith, why
think you thus in yourselves, because ye have brought no bread?
9 Do ye not yet perceive, neither remember the five loaves, when
there were five thousand men, and how many baskets took ye up?
10 Neither the seven loaves when there were four thousand men,
and how many baskets took ye up?
11 Why perceive ye not that I said not unto you concerning bread,
that ye should beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and Sadducees?
12 Then understood they that he had not said that they should beware
of the leaven of bread, but of the doctrine of the Pharisees, and
13 Now when Jesus came into the coasts of Caesarea Philippi, he
asked his disciples, saying, Whom do men say that I, the Son of man am?
14 And they said, Some say, John Baptist: and some, Elijah:
and others, Jeremiah, or one of the Prophets.
15 He said unto them, But who say ye that I am?
16 Then Simon Peter answered, and said, Thou art the Christ the Son
of the living God.
17 And Jesus answered, and said to him, Blessed art thou, Simon, the
son of Jonah: for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but my
Father which is in heaven.
18 And I say also unto thee, that thou art Peter, and upon this rock
I will build my Church: and the gates of hell shall not overcome it.
19 And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven, and
whatsoever thou shalt bind upon earth, shall be bound in heaven: and
whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth, shall be loosed in heaven.
20 Then he charged his disciples, that they should tell no man that
he was Jesus the Christ.
21 From that time forth Jesus began to show unto his disciples,
that he must go unto Jerusalem, and suffer many things of the Elders,
and of the high Priests, and Scribes, and be slain, and rise again the
22 Then Peter took him aside, and began to rebuke him, saying,
Master, pity thyself: this shall not be unto thee.
23 Then he turned back, and said unto Peter, Get thee behind me,
Satan: thou art an offence unto me, because thou understandest not the
things that are of God, but the things that are of men.
24 Jesus then said to his disciples, If any man will follow me, let
him forsake himself: and take up his cross, and follow me.
25 For whosoever will save his life, shall lose it: and whosoever
shall lose his life for my sake, shall find it.
26 For what shall it profit a man though he should win the whole
world, if he lose his own soul? or what shall a man give for recompense
of his soul?
27 For the Son of man shall come in the glory of his Father with his
Angels, and then shall he give to every man according to his deeds.
28 Verily I say unto you, there be some of them that stand
here, which shall not taste of death, till they have seen the Son of man
come in his kingdom.
1 And after six days, Jesus took Peter, and James, and John his
brother, and brought them up into an high mountain apart,
2 And was transfigured before them: and his face did shine as the
sun, and his clothes were as white as the light.
3 And behold, there appeared unto them Moses, and Elijah, talking
4 Then answered Peter, and said to Jesus, Master, it is good for us
to be here: if thou wilt, let us make here three tabernacles, one for
thee, and one for Moses, and one for Elijah.
5 While he yet spake, behold, a bright cloud shadowed them: and
behold, there came a voice out of the cloud, saying, This is my
beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased: hear him.
6 And when the disciples heard that, they fell on their faces and
were sore afraid.
7 Then Jesus came and touched them, and said, Arise, and be not
8 And when they lifted up their eyes, they saw no man, save Jesus
9 And as they came down from the mountain, Jesus charged them,
saying, Show the vision to no man, until the Son of man rise again from
10 And his disciples asked him, saying, Why then say the Scribes that
Elijah must first come?
11 And Jesus answered, and said unto them, Certainly Elijah must
first come, and restore all things.
12 But I say unto you, that Elijah is come already, and they knew him
not, but have done unto him whatsoever they would: likewise shall also
the Son of man suffer of them.
13 Then the disciples perceived that he spake unto them of John
14 And when they were come to the multitude, there came to him a
certain man, and kneeled down to him.
15 And said, Master, have pity on my son: for he is lunatic, and is
sore vexed: for oft times he falleth into the fire, and oft times
into the water.
16 And I brought him to thy disciples, and they could not heal him.
17 Then Jesus answered, and said, O generation, faithless, and
crooked, how long now shall I be with you! how long now shall I suffer
you! bring him thither to me.
18 And Jesus rebuked the devil, and he went out of him: and the child
was healed at that hour.
19 Then came the disciples to Jesus apart, and said, Why could not we
cast him out?
20 And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for Verily I
say unto you, if ye have faith as much as is a grain of
mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder
place, and it shall remove: and nothing shall be impossible unto you.
21 Howbeit this kind goeth not out, but by prayer and fasting.
22 And as they abode in Galilee, Jesus said unto them, The Son of
man shall be delivered into the hands of men,
23 And they shall kill him, but the third day shall he rise again:
and they were very sorry.
24 And when they were come to Capernaum, they that received poll
money, came to Peter, and said, Doth not your Master pay tribute?
25 He said, Yes. And when he was come into the house, Jesus prevented
him, saying, What thinkest thou, Simon? Of whom do the Kings of the
earth take tribute, or poll money? of their children, or of strangers?
26 Peter said unto him, Of strangers. Then said Jesus unto him, Then
are the children free.
27 Nevertheless, lest we should offend them: go to the sea, and cast
in an angle, and take the first fish that cometh up, and when you hast
opened his mouth, thou shalt find a piece of twenty pence: that take,
and give it unto them for me and thee.
1 The same time the disciples came unto Jesus, saying, Who is the
greatest in the kingdom of heaven?
2 And Jesus called a little child unto him, and set him in the midst
3 And said, Verily I say unto you, except ye be converted, and become
as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven.
4 Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the
same is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven.
5 And whosoever shall receive such little child in my Name, receiveth
6 But whosoever shall offend one of these little ones which believe
in me, it were better for him, that a millstone were hanged about his
neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea.
7 Woe be unto the world because of offences: for it must needs
be that offences shall come, but woe be to that man, by whom the
8 Wherefore, if thine hand or thy foot cause thee to offend, cut them
off, and cast them from thee: it is better for thee to enter into
life, halt, or maimed, than having two hands, or two feet, to be cast
into everlasting fire.
9 And if thine eye cause thee to offend, pluck it out, and cast it
from thee: it is better for thee to enter into life with one eye, then
having two eyes, to be cast into hell fire.
10 See that ye despise not one of these little ones: for I say unto
you, that in heaven their Angels always behold the face of my Father
which is in heaven.
11 For the Son of man is come to save that which was lost.
12 How think ye? If a man have an hundred sheep, and one of them be
gone astray, doth he not leave ninety and nine, and go into the
mountains, and seek that which is gone astray?
13 And if so be that he find it, verily I say unto you, he rejoiceth
more of that sheep, then of the ninety and nine which went not astray:
14 So is it not the will of your Father which is in heaven, that one
of these little ones should perish.
15 Moreover, if thy brother trespass against thee, go and tell him
his fault between thee and him alone: if he hear thee, thou hast won thy
16 But if he hear thee not, take yet with thee one or two, that by
the mouth of two or three witnesses every word may be confirmed.
17 And if he will not vouchsafe to hear them, tell it unto the
Church: and if he refuse to hear the Church also, let him be unto thee
as an heathen man, and a Publican.
18 Verily I say unto you, Whatsoever ye bind on earth, shall
be bound in heaven: and whatsoever ye loose on earth, shall be loosed in
19 Again, verily I say unto you, that if two of you shall agree in
earth upon anything, whatsoever they shall desire, it shall be given
them of my Father which is in heaven.
20 For where two or three are gathered together in my Name, there am
I in the midst of them.
21 Then came Peter to him, and said, Master, how oft shall my brother
sin against me, and I shall forgive him? unto seven times?
22 Jesus said unto him, I say not to thee, unto seven times, but unto
seventy times seven times.
23 Therefore is the kingdom of heaven likened unto a certain King,
which would take an account of his servants.
24 And when he had begun to reckon, one was brought unto him, which
ought him ten thousand talents.
25 And because he had nothing to pay, his master commanded him to be
sold, and his wife, and his children, and all that he had, and
the debt to be paid.
26 The servant therefore fell down, and besought him, saying, Master,
appease thine anger toward me, and I will pay thee all.
27 Then that servants master had compassion, and loosed him, and
forgave him the debt.
28 But when the servant was departed, he found one of his fellows,
which ought him an hundred pence, and he laid hands on him, and took him
by the throat, saying, Pay me that thou owest.
29 Then his fellow fell down at his feet, and besought him, saying,
Appease thine anger towards me, and I will pay thee all.
30 Yet he would not, but went and cast him into prison, till he
should pay the debt.
31 And when his other fellows saw what was done, they were
very sorry, and came, and declared unto their master all that was done.
32 Then his master called him, and said to him, O evil servant, I
forgave thee all that debt, because thou prayest me.
33 Ought not thou also to have had pity on thy fellow, even as I had
pity on thee?
34 So his master was wroth, and delivered him to the jailors, till he
should pay all that was due to him.
35 So likewise shall mine heavenly Father do unto you, except ye
forgive from your hearts, each one to his brother their trespasses.
1 And it came to pass, that when Jesus had finished those sayings, he
departed from Galilee, and came into the coasts of Judea beyond Jordan.
2 And great multitudes followed him, and he healed them there.
3 Then came unto him the Pharisees tempting him, and saying to him,
Is it lawful for a man to put away his wife for every fault?
4 And he answered and said unto them, Have ye not read, that he which
made them at the beginning, made them male and female,
5 And said, For this cause, shall a man leave father and mother, and
cleave unto his wife, and they twain shall be one flesh.
6 Wherefore they are no more twain, but one flesh. Let not man
therefore put asunder that, which God hath coupled together.
7 They said to him, Why did then Moses command to give a bill of
divorcement, and to put her away?
8 He said unto them, Moses, because of the hardness of your heart,
suffered you to put away your wives: but from the beginning it was not
9 I say therefore unto you, that whosoever shall put away his wife,
except it be for whoredom, and marry another, committeth
adultery: and whosoever marrieth her which is divorced, doth commit
10 Then said his disciples to him, If the matter be so between
man and wife, it is not good to marry.
11 But he said unto them, All men cannot receive this thing, save
they to whom it is given.
12 For there are some chaste, which were so born of their
mothers belly: and there be some chaste, which be made chaste by men:
and there be some chaste, which have made themselves chaste for the
kingdom of heaven. He that is able to receive this, let him
13 Then were brought to him little children, that he should put
his hands on them, and pray: and the disciples rebuked them.
14 But Jesus said, Suffer the little children, and forbid them not to
come to me: for of such is the kingdom of heaven.
15 And when he had put his hands on them, he departed thence.
16 And behold one came, and said unto him, Good Master, what good
thing shall I do, that I may have eternal life?
17 And he said unto him, Why callest thou me good? there is none good
but one, even God: but if thou wilt enter into life, keep the
18 He said to him, Which? And Jesus said, These, Thou shalt not kill:
Thou shalt not commit adultery: Thou shalt not steal: Thou shalt not
bear false witness.
19 Honor thy father and mother: and thou shalt love thy neighbor as
20 The young man said unto him, I have observed all these things from
my youth: what lack I yet?
21 Jesus said unto him, If thou wilt be perfect, go, sell that thou
hast, and give it to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven,
and come and follow me.
22 And when the young man heard that saying, he went away sorrowful:
for he had great possessions.
23 Then Jesus said unto his disciples, Verily I say unto you, that a
rich man shall hardly enter into the kingdom of heaven.
24 And again I say unto you, It is easier for a camel to go through
the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of
25 And when his disciples heard it, they were exceedingly amazed,
saying, Who then can be saved?
26 And Jesus beheld them, and said unto them, With men this is
impossible, but with God all things are possible.
27 Then answered Peter, and said to him, Behold, we have forsaken
all, and followed thee: what shall we have?
28 And Jesus said unto them, Verily I say to you, that when the Son
of man shall sit in the throne of his majesty, ye which followed me in
the regeneration, shall sit also upon twelve thrones, and judge the
twelve tribes of Israel.
29 And whosoever shall forsake houses, or brethren, or sisters, or
father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for my Names sake,
he shall receive an hundred fold more, and shall inherit everlasting
30 But many that are first, shall be last, and the last shall be
1 For the kingdom of heaven is like unto a certain householder, which
went out at the dawning of the day to hire laborers into his vineyard.
2 And he agreed with the laborers for a penny a day, and sent them
into his vineyard.
3 And he went out about the third hour, and saw others standing idle
in the market place,
4 And said unto them, Go ye also into my vineyard, and
whatsoever is right, I will give you: and they went their way.
5 Again he went out about the sixth and ninth hour, and did likewise.
6 And he went about the eleventh hour, and found other standing idle,
and said unto them, Why stand ye here all the day idle?
7 They said unto him, Because no man hath hired us. He said to them,
Go ye also into my vineyard, and whatsoever is right, that shall
8 And when even was come, the master of the vineyard said unto his
steward, Call the laborers, and give them their hire, beginning at the
last, till thou come to the first.
9 And they which were hired about the eleventh hour, came and
received every man a penny.
10 Now when the first came, they supposed that they should receive
more, but they likewise received every man a penny.
11 And when they had received it, they murmured against the master of
12 Saying, These last have wrought but one hour, and
thou hast made them equal unto us, which have born the burden, and heat
of the day.
13 And he answered one of them, saying, Friend, I do thee no wrong:
didst thou not agree with me for a penny?
14 Take that which is thine own, and go thy way: I will give unto
this last, as much as to thee.
15 Is it not lawful for me to do as I will with mine own? Is thine
eye evil because I am good?
16 So the last shall be first, and the first last: for many are
called, but few chosen.
17 And Jesus went up to Jerusalem, and took the twelve disciples
apart in the way, and said unto them,
18 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,
19 And shall deliver him to the Gentiles, to mock, and to scourge,
and to crucify him: but the third day he shall rise again.
20 Then came to him the mother of Zebedees children with her sons,
worshipping him, and desiring a certain thing of him.
21 And he said unto her, What wouldest thou? She said to him, Grant
that these my two sons may sit, the one at thy right hand, and the other
at thy left hand in thy kingdom.
22 And Jesus answered and said, Ye know not what ye ask. Are ye able
to drink of the cup that I shall drink of, and to be baptized with the
baptism that I shall be baptized with? They said to him, We are able.
23 And he said unto them, Ye shall drink indeed of my cup, and shall
be baptized with the baptism, that I am baptized with, but to sit at my
right hand, and at my left hand, is not mine to give: but it shall be
given to them for whom it is prepared of my Father.
24 And when the other ten heard this, they disdained at the
25 Therefore Jesus called them unto him, and said, Ye know that the
lords of the Gentiles have domination over them, and they that are
great, exercise authority over them.
26 But it shall not be so among you: but whosoever will be great
among you, let him be your servant.
27 And whosoever will be chief among you, let him be your servant.
28 Even as the Son of man came not to be served, but to serve, and to
give his life for the ransom of many.
29 And as they departed from Jericho, a great multitude followed
30 And behold, two blind men, sitting by the wayside, when they heard
that Jesus passed by, cried saying, O Lord, the Son of David, have mercy
31 And the multitude rebuked them, because they should hold their
peace: but they cried the more, saying, O Lord, the Son of David, have
mercy on us.
32 Then Jesus stood still, and called them, and said, What will ye
that I should do to you?
33 They said to him, Lord, that our eyes may be opened.
34 And Jesus moved with compassion touched their eyes, and
immediately their eyes received sight, and they followed him.
1 And when they drew near to Jerusalem, and were come to Bethphage,
unto the Mount of the Olives, then sent Jesus two disciples,
2 Saying to them, Go into the town that is over against you, and soon
ye shall find an ass bound, and a colt with her: loose them, and bring
them unto me.
3 And if any man say ought unto you, say ye, that the Lord hath need
of them, and straightway he will let them go.
4 All this was done that it might be fulfilled, which was spoken by
the Prophet, saying,
5 Tell ye the daughter of Zion, Behold, thy King cometh unto thee,
meek and sitting upon an ass, and a colt, the foal of an ass used to the
6 So the disciples went, and did as Jesus had commanded them,
7 And brought the ass and the colt, and put on them their clothes,
and set him thereon.
8 And a great multitude spread their garments in the way: and other
cut down branches from the trees, and strawed them in the way.
9 Moreover, the people that went before, and they also that followed,
cried, saying, Hosanna to the Son of David, Blessed be he that
cometh in the Name of the Lord, Hosanna thou which art in the
10 And when he was come into Jerusalem, all the city was moved,
saying, Who is this?
11 And the people said, This is Jesus the Prophet of Nazareth in
12 And Jesus went into the Temple of God, and cast out all them
that sold and bought in the Temple, and overthrew the tables of the
money changers, and the seats of them that sold doves,
13 And said to them, It is written, Mine house shall be called the
house of prayer: but ye have made it a den of thieves.
14 Then the blind, and the halt came to him in the Temple, and he
15 But when the chief Priests and Scribes saw the marvels that he
did, and the children crying in the Temple, and saying, Hosanna the Son
of David, they disdained,
16 And said unto him, Hearest thou what these say? And Jesus said
unto them, Yea: read ye never, By the mouth of babes and sucklings thou
hast made perfect the praise?
17 So he left them, and went out of the city unto Bethany, and
18 And in the morning as he returned into the city, he was hungry,
19 And seeing a fig tree in the way, he came to it, and found nothing
thereon, but leaves only, and said to it, Never fruit grow on thee hence
forwards. And soon the fig tree withered.
20 And when his disciples saw it, they marveled, saying, How soon is
the fig tree withered!
21 And Jesus answered and said unto them, Verily I say unto you, if
ye have faith, and doubt not, ye shall not only do that, which I have
done to the fig tree, but also if ye say unto this mountain, Take
thyself away, and cast thyself into the sea, it shall be done.
22 And whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, if ye believe, ye shall
23 And when he was come into the Temple, the chief Priests, and the
Elders of the people came unto him, as he was teaching, and said, By
what authority doest thou these things? and who gave thee this
24 Then Jesus answered and said unto them, I also will ask of you a
certain thing, which if ye tell me, I likewise will tell you by what
authority I do these things.
25 The baptism of John, whence was it? from heaven, or of men? Then
they reasoned among themselves, saying, If we shall say from heaven, he
will say unto us, Why did ye not then believe him?
26 And if we say, Of men, we fear the people: for all hold John as a
27 Then they answered Jesus, and said, We cannot tell. And he said
unto them, Neither tell I you by what authority I do these things.
28 But what think ye? A certain man had two sons, and came
to the elder, and said, Son, go and work today in my vineyard.
29 But he answered and said, I will not: yet afterward he repented
himself, and went.
30 Then came he to the second, and said likewise. And he answered,
and said, I will, Sir: yet he went not.
31 Whether of them twain did the will of the father? They said unto
him, The first. Jesus said unto them, Verily I say unto you, that the
Publicans and the harlots shall go before you into the kingdom of God.
32 For John came unto you in the way of righteousness, and ye
believed him not: but the Publicans, and the harlots believed him, and
ye, though ye saw it, were not moved with repentance afterward, that ye
might believe him.
33 Hear another parable, There was a certain householder, which
planted a vineyard, and hedged it round about, and made a winepress
therein, and built a tower, and let it out to husbandmen, and
went into a strange country.
34 And when the time of the fruit drew near, he sent his servants to
the husbandmen to receive the fruits thereof.
35 And the husbandmen took his servants and beat one, and killed
another, and stoned another.
36 Again he sent other servants, more than the first: and they did
the like unto them.
37 But last of all he sent unto them his own son, saying, They will
reverence my son.
38 But when the husbandmen saw the son, they said among themselves,
This is the heir: come, let us kill him, and let us take his
39 So they took him, and cast him out of the vineyard, and slew him.
40 When therefore the Lord of the vineyard shall come, what will he
do to those husbandmen?
41 They said unto him, He will cruelly destroy those wicked men, and
will let out his vineyard unto other husbandmen, which shall deliver him
the fruits in their seasons.
42 Jesus said unto them, Read ye never in the Scriptures, The stone
which the builders refused, the same is made the head of the corner?
This was the Lords doing, and it is marvelous in our eyes.
43 Therefore say I unto you, The kingdom of God shall be taken from
you, and shall be given to a nation, which shall bring forth the fruits
44 And whosoever shall fall on this stone, he shall be broken: but on
whomsoever it shall fall, it will grind him into powder.
45 And when the chief Priests and Pharisees had heard his parables,
they perceived that he spake of them.
46 And they seeking to lay hands on him, feared the people, because
they took him as a Prophet.
1 Then Jesus answered, and spake unto them again in parables, saying,
2 The kingdom of heaven is like unto a certain King which married his
3 And sent forth his servants, to call them that were bid to the
wedding, but they would not come.
4 Again he sent forth other servants, saying, Tell them which are
bidden, Behold, I have prepared my dinner: mine oxen and my fatlings are
killed, and all things are ready: come unto the marriage.
5 But they made light of it, and went their ways, one to his farm,
and another about his merchandise.
6 And the remnant took his servants, and entreated them sharply, and
7 But when the King heard it, he was wroth, and sent forth his
warriors, and destroyed those murderers, and burned up their city.
8 Then said he to his servants, Truly the wedding is prepared but
they which were bidden, were not worthy.
9 Go ye therefore out into the highways, and as many as ye
find, bid them to the marriage.
10 So those servants went out into the highways and gathered
together all that ever they found, both good and bad: so the wedding was
furnished with guests.
11 Then the King came in, to see the guests, and saw there a man
which had not on a wedding garment.
12 And he said unto him, Friend, how camest thou in hither, and hast
not on a wedding garment? And he was speechless.
13 Then said the King to the servants, Bind him hand and foot: take
him away, and cast him into utter darkness: there shall be weeping and
gnashing of teeth.
14 For many are called, but few chosen.
15 Then went the Pharisees and took counsel how they might tangle
him in talk.
16 And they sent unto him their disciples with the Herodians, saying,
Master, we know that thou art true, and teachest the way of God truly,
neither carest for any man: for thou considerest not the person of men.
17 Tell us therefore, how thinkest thou? Is it lawful to give tribute
unto Caesar, or not?
18 But Jesus perceived their wickedness, and said, Why tempt ye me,
19 Show me the tribute money. And they brought him a penny.
20 And he said unto them, Whose is this image and superscription?
21 They said unto him, Caesar's. Then said he unto them, Give
therefore to Caesar, the things which are Caesar's, and give unto God,
those things which are Gods.
22 And when they heard it, they marveled, and left him, and went
23 The same day the Sadducees came to him (which say that there is
no resurrection) and asked him,
24 Saying, Master, Moses said, If a man die, having no children, let
his brother marry his wife, and raise up seed unto his brother.
25 Now there were with us seven brethren, and the first married a
wife, and deceased: and having none issue, left his wife unto his
26 Likewise also the second, and the third, unto the seventh.
27 And last of all the woman died also.
28 Therefore in the resurrection, whose wife shall she be of the
seven? for all had her.
29 Then Jesus answered, and said unto them, Ye are deceived, not
knowing the Scriptures, nor the power of God.
30 For in the resurrection they neither marry wives, nor wives are
bestowed in marriage, but are as the Angels of God in heaven.
31 And concerning the resurrection of the dead, have ye not read what
is spoken unto you of God, saying,
32 I am the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of
Jacob? God is not the God of the dead, but of the living.
33 And when the people heard it, they were astonished at his
34 But when the Pharisees had heard, that he had put the Sadducees
to silence, they assembled together.
35 And one of them, which was an expounder of the Law, asked
him a question, tempting him, and saying,
36 Master, which is the great commandment in the Law?
37 Jesus said to him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thine
heart, with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.
38 This is the first and the great commandment.
39 And the second is like unto this, Thou shalt love thy neighbor as
40 On these two commandments hangeth the whole Law, and the Prophets.
41 While the Pharisees were gathered together, Jesus asked them,
42 Saying, What think ye of Christ? whose son is he? They said unto
43 He said unto them, How then doth David in spirit call him Lord,
44 The Lord said to my Lord, Sit at my right hand, till I make thine
enemies thy footstool?
45 If then David call him Lord, how is he his son?
46 And none could answer him a word, neither durst any from that day
forth ask him any more questions.
1 Then spake Jesus to the multitude, and to his disciples,
2 Saying, The Scribes and the Pharisees sit in Moses seat.
3 All therefore whatsoever they bid you observe, that observe and do:
but after their works do not: for they say, and do not.
4 For they bind heavy burdens, and grievous to be born, and lay them
on mens shoulders, but they themselves will not move them with one
of their fingers.
5 All their works they do for to be seen of men: for they make their
phylacteries broad, and make long the fringes of their garments,
6 And love the chief place at feasts, and to have the chief seats in
7 And greetings in the markets, and to be called of men, Rabbi,
8 But be not ye called, Rabbi: for one is your doctor, to wit,
Christ, and all ye are brethren.
9 And call no man your father upon the earth: for there is but one,
your Father which is in heaven.
10 Be not called doctors: for one is your doctor, even Christ.
11 But he that is greatest among you, let him be your servant.
12 For whosoever will exalt himself, shall be brought low: and
whosoever will humble himself, shall be exalted.
13 Woe therefore be unto you Scribes and Pharisees,
hypocrites, because ye shut up the kingdom of heaven before men: for ye
yourselves go not in, neither suffer ye them that would enter, to come
14 Woe be unto you Scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites: for ye
devour widow's houses, even under a color of long prayers: wherefore ye
shall receive the greater damnation.
15 Woe be unto you, Scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites: for ye
compass sea and land to make one of your profession: and when he is
made, ye make him two fold more the child of hell, than you yourselves.
16 Woe be unto you blind guides, which say, Whosoever sweareth
by the Temple, it is nothing: but whosoever sweareth by the gold of the
Temple, he offendeth.
17 Ye fools and blind, whether is greater, the gold, or the Temple
that sanctifieth the gold?
18 And whosoever sweareth by the altar, it is nothing: but whosoever
sweareth by the offering that is upon it, offendeth.
19 Ye fools and blind, whether is greater, the offering, or the altar
which sanctifieth the offering?
20 Whosoever therefore sweareth by the altar, sweareth by it, and by
all things thereon.
21 And whosoever sweareth by the Temple, sweareth by it, and by him
that dwelleth therein.
22 And he that sweareth by heaven, sweareth by the throne of God, and
by him that sitteth thereon.
23 Woe be to you, Scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites: for ye
tithe mint, and anise, and cumin, and leave the weightier matters of the
law, as judgment, and mercy, and fidelity. These ought ye to have
done, and not to have left the other.
24 Ye blind guides, which strain out a gnat, and swallow a camel.
25 Woe be to you, Scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites: for ye
make clean the utter side of the cup, and of the platter: but within
they are full of bribery and excess.
26 Thou blind Pharisee, cleanse first the inside of the cup and
platter, that the outside of them may be clean also.
27 Woe be to you, Scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites: for ye
are like unto whited tombs, which appear beautiful outward, but are
within full of dead mens bones, and of all filthiness.
28 So are ye also: for outward ye appear righteous unto men, but
within ye are full of hypocrisy and iniquity.
29 Woe be unto you, Scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites: for
ye build the tombs of the Prophets, and garnish the sepulchers of the
30 And say, If we had been in the days of our fathers, we would not
have been partners with them in the blood of the Prophets.
31 So then ye be witnesses unto yourselves, that ye are the children
of them that murdered the Prophets.
32 Fulfill ye also the measure of your fathers.
33 O serpents, the generation of vipers, how should ye escape the
damnation of hell!
34 Wherefore behold, I send unto you Prophets, and wise men, and
Scribes, and of them ye shall kill and crucify: and of them shall ye
scourge in your Synagogues, and persecute from city to city,
35 That upon you may come all the righteous blood that was shed upon
the earth, from the blood of Abel the righteous, unto the blood of
Zecharias the son of Berachias, whom ye slew between the Temple
and the altar.
36 Verily I say unto you, all these things shall come upon this
37 Jerusalem, Jerusalem, which killest the Prophets, and stonest them
which are sent to thee, how often would I have gathered thy children
together, as the hen gathereth her chickens under her wings, and ye
38 Behold, your habitation shall be left unto you desolate,
39 For I say unto you, ye shall not see me henceforth till that ye
say, Blessed is he that cometh in the Name of the Lord.
1 And Jesus went out, and departed from the Temple, and his disciples
came to him, to show him the building of the Temple.
2 And Jesus said unto them, See ye not all these things? Verily I say
unto you, there shall not be here left a stone upon a stone, that shall
not be cast down.
3 And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, his disciples came unto him
apart, saying, Tell us when these things shall be, and what sign
shall be of thy coming, and of the end of the world.
4 And Jesus answered, and said unto them, Take heed that no man
5 For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ, and shall
6 And ye shall hear of wars, and rumors of wars: see that ye be not
troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not
7 For nation shall rise against nation, and realm against realm, and
there shall be pestilence, and famine, and earthquakes in divers places.
8 All these are but the beginning of sorrows.
9 Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you,
and ye shall be hated of all nations for my Names sake.
10 And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and
shall hate one another.
11 And many false prophets shall arise, and shall deceive many.
12 And because iniquity shall be increased, the love of many shall be
13 But he that endureth to the end, he shall be saved.
14 And this Gospel of the kingdom shall be preached through the whole
world for a witness unto all nations, and then shall the end come.
15 When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation spoken
of by Daniel the Prophet, standing in the Holy place, (let him that
readeth consider it.)
16 Then let them which be in Judea, flee into the mountains.
17 Let him which is on the house top, not come down to fetch anything
out of his house.
18 And he that is in the field, let not him return back to fetch his
19 And woe shall be to them that are with child, and to them
that give suck in those days.
20 But pray that your flight be not in the winter, neither on the
21 For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not from the
beginning of the world to this time, nor shall be.
22 And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh
be saved: but for the elects sake those days shall be shortened.
23 Then if any shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or there,
believe it not.
24 For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall
show great signs and wonders, so that if it were possible, they should
deceive the very elect.
25 Behold, I have told you before.
26 Wherefore if they shall say unto you, Behold, he is in the desert,
go not forth: Behold, he is in the secret places, believe it not.
27 For as the lightning cometh out of the East, and shineth into the
West, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
28 For wheresoever a dead carcass is, thither will the Eagles resort.
29 And immediately after the tribulations of those days, shall the
sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars
shall fall from heaven, and the powers of heaven shall be shaken.
30 And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and
then shall all the kinreds of the earth mourn, and they shall see
the Son of man come in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.
31 And he shall send his Angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and
they shall gather together his elect, from the four winds, and
from the one end of the heaven unto the other.
32 Now learn the parable of the fig tree: when her bough is yet
tender, and it bringeth forth leaves, ye know that summer is
33 So likewise ye, when ye see all these things, know that the
kingdom of God is near, even at the doors.
34 Verily I say unto you, this generation shall not pass, till all
these things be done.
35 Heaven and earth shall pass away: but my words shall not pass
36 But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no not the Angels of
heaven, but my father only.
37 But as the days of Noah were, so likewise shall the coming
of the Son of man be.
38 For as in the days before the flood they did eat and drink,
marry, and give in marriage, unto the day that Noah entered into the
39 And knew nothing, till the flood came and took them all away, so
shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
40 Then two men shall be in the fields, the one shall be received,
and the other shall be refused.
41 Two women shall be grinding at the mill: the one shall be
received, and the other shall be refused.
42 Wake therefore: for ye know not what hour your master will come.
43 Of this be sure, that if the good man of the house knew at what
watch the thief would come, he would surely watch, and not suffer his
house to be digged through.
44 Therefore be ye also ready: for in the hour that ye think not,
will the Son of man come.
45 Who then is a faithful servant and wise, whom his master hath made
ruler over his household, to give them meat in season?
46 Blessed is that servant whom his master, when he cometh,
shall find so doing.
47 Verily I say unto you, he shall make him ruler over all his goods.
48 But if that evil servant shall say in his heart, My master doth
defer his coming,
49 And begin to smite his fellows, and to eat and to drink with the
50 That servants master will come in a day, when he looketh not for
him, and in an hour that he is not ware of,
51 And will cut him off, and give him his portion with hypocrites:
there shall be weeping, and gnashing of teeth.
1 Then the kingdom of heaven shall be likened unto ten virgins, which
took their lamps, and went to meet the bridegroom.
2 And five of them were wise, and five foolish.
3 The foolish took their lamps, but took none oil with them.
4 But the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps.
5 Now while the bridegroom tarried long, all slumbered and slept.
6 And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom
cometh: go out to meet him.
7 Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps.
8 And the foolish said to the wise, Give us of your oil, for our
lamps are out.
9 But the wise answered, saying, We fear lest there will not
be enough for us and you: but go ye rather to them that sell, and buy
10 And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came: and they that
were ready, went in with him to the wedding, and the gate was shut.
11 Afterwards came also the other virgins, saying, Lord, Lord, open
12 But he answered, and said, Verily I say unto you, I know you not.
13 Watch therefore: for ye know neither the day, nor the hour, when
the son of man will come.
14 For the kingdom of heaven is as a man that going into a
strange country, called his servants, and delivered to them his goods.
15 And unto one he gave five talents, and to another two, and to
another one, to every man after his own ability, and straightway went
16 Then he that had received the five talents, went and occupied with
them, and gained other five talents.
17 Likewise also, he that received two, he also gained other
18 But he that received that one, went and digged it in the earth,
and hid his masters money.
19 But after a long season, the master of those servants came, and
reckoned with them.
20 Then came he that had received five talents, and brought other
five talents, saying, Master, thou deliverest unto me five talents:
behold, I have gained with them other five talents.
21 Then his master said unto him, It is well done good servant and
faithful, Thou hast been faithful in little, I will make thee ruler over
much: enter into thy masters joy.
22 Also he that had received two talents, came and said, Master, thou
deliverest unto me two talents: behold, I have gained two other talents
23 His master said unto him, It is well done good servant, and
faithful, Thou hast been faithful in little, I will make thee ruler over
much: enter into thy masters joy.
24 Then he which had received the one talent, came and said, Master,
I knew that thou wast an hard man, which reapest where thou sowedst not,
and gatherest where thou strawedst not:
25 I was therefore afraid, and went and hid thy talent in the earth:
behold, thou hast thine own.
26 And his master answered, and said unto him, Thou evil servant, and
slothful, thou knewest that I reap where I sowed not, and gather where I
27 Thou oughtest therefore to have put my money to the exchangers,
and then at my coming should I have received mine own with vantage.
28 Take therefore the talent from him, and give it unto him which
hath ten talents.
29 For unto every man that hath, it shall be given, and he shall have
abundance, and from him that hath not, even that he hath, shall be taken
30 Cast therefore that unprofitable servant into utter darkness:
there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
31 And when the Son of man cometh in his glory, and all the Holy
Angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory,
32 And before him shall be gathered all nations, and he shall
separate them one from another, as a shepherd separateth the sheep from
33 And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, and the goats on the
34 Then shall the king say to them on his right hand, Come ye blessed
of my father: inherit ye the kingdom prepared for you from the
foundation of the world.
35 For I was hungred, and ye gave me meat: I thirsted, and ye gave me
drink: I was a stranger, and ye lodged me.
36 I was naked, and ye clothed me, I was sick, and ye visited
me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me.
37 Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we
thee hungred, and fed thee? or a thirst, and gave thee drink?
38 And when saw we thee a stranger, and lodged thee? or naked, and
39 Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee?
40 And the King shall answer, and say unto them, Verily I say unto
you, in as much as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my
brethren, ye have done it to me.
41 Then shall he say unto them on the left hand, Depart from me ye
cursed, into everlasting fire, which is prepared for the devil and his
42 For I was an hungred, and ye gave me no meat: I thirsted, and ye
gave me no drink:
43 I was a stranger, and ye lodged me not: I was naked, and ye
clothed me not: sick, and in prison, and ye visited me not.
44 Then shall they also answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an
hungred, or a thirst, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison,
and did not minister unto thee?
45 Then shall he answer them, and say, Verily I say unto you,
in as much as ye did it not to one of the least of these, ye did it not
46 And these shall go into everlasting pain, and the righteous into
1 And it came to pass, when Jesus had finished all these sayings, he
said unto his disciples,
2 Ye know that within two days is the Passover, and the Son of man
shall be delivered to be crucified.
3 Then assembled together the chief Priests and the Scribes, and the
Elders of the people into the hall of the high Priest, called Caiaphas:
4 And consulted how they might take Jesus by subtlety, and kill him.
5 But they said, Not on the feast day, lest any uproar be
among the people.
6 And when Jesus was in Bethany, in the house of Simon the leper,
7 There came unto him a woman, which had a box of very costly
ointment, and poured it on his head, as he sat at the table.
8 And when his disciples saw it, they had indignation, saying, What
needed this waste?
9 For this ointment might have been sold for much, and been given to
10 And Jesus knowing it, said unto them, Why trouble ye the woman?
for she hath wrought a good work upon me.
11 For ye have the poor always with you, but me shall ye not have
12 For in that she poured this ointment on my body, she did it to
13 Verily I say unto you, Wheresoever this Gospel shall be preached
throughout all the world, there shall also this that she hath done, be
spoken of for a memorial of her.
14 Then one of the twelve, called Judas Iscariot, went unto the
15 And said, What will ye give me, and I will deliver him unto you?
and they appointed unto him thirty pieces of silver.
16 And from that time, he sought opportunity to betray him.
17 Now on the first day of the feast of unleavened bread the
disciples came to Jesus, saying unto him, Where wilt thou that we
prepare for thee to eat the Passover?
18 And he said, Go you into the city to such a man, and say to him,
The master saith, My time is at hand: I will keep the Passover at thine
house with my disciples.
19 And the disciples did as Jesus had given them charge, and made
ready the Passover.
20 So when the Even was come, he sat down with the twelve.
21 And as they did eat, he said, Verily I say unto you, that
one of you shall betray me.
22 And they were exceeding sorrowful, and began every one of them to
say unto him, Is it I, Master?
23 And he answered and said, He that dippeth his hand with me in the
dish, he shall betray me.
24 Surely the Son of man goeth his way, as it is written of him: but
woe be to that man, by whom the Son of man is betrayed: it had
been good for that man, if he had never been born.
25 Then Judas which betrayed him, answered and said, Is it I, Master?
He said unto him, Thou hast said it.
26 And as they did eat, Jesus took the bread: and when he had given
thanks, he break it, and gave it to the disciples, and said, Take, eat:
this is my body.
27 Also he took the cup, and when he had given thanks, he gave it
them, saying, Drink ye all of it.
28 For this is my blood of the New Testament, that is shed for many,
for the remission of sins.
29 I say unto you, that I will not drink henceforth of this fruit of
the vine until that day, when I shall drink it new with you in my
30 And when they had sung a Psalm, they went out into the Mount of
31 Then said Jesus unto them, All ye shall be offended by me this
night: for it is written, I will smite the shepherd, and the sheep of
the flock shall be scattered.
32 But after I am risen again, I will go before you into Galilee.
33 But Peter answered, and said unto him, Though that all men should
be offended by thee, yet will I never be offended.
34 Jesus said unto him, Verily I say unto thee, that this night,
before the cock crow, thou shalt deny me thrice.
35 Peter said unto him, Though I should die with thee, yet will I not
deny thee. Likewise also said all the disciples.
36 Then went Jesus with them into a place which is called
Gethsemane, and said unto his disciples, Sit ye here, while I go and
37 And he took Peter, and the two sons of Zebedee, and began to wax
sorrowful, and grievously troubled.
38 Then said Jesus unto them, My soul is very heavy, even unto
the death: tarry ye here, and watch with me.
39 So he went a little further, and fell on his face, and prayed,
saying, O my Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me:
nevertheless, not as I will, but as thou wilt.
40 After he came unto the disciples, and found them asleep, and said
to Peter, What? could ye not watch with me one hour?
41 Watch, and pray, that ye enter not into temptation: the spirit
indeed is ready, but the flesh is weak.
42 Again he went away the second time and prayed, saying, O my
Father, if this cup cannot pass away from me, but that I must drink it,
thy will be done.
43 And he came, and found them a sleep again, for their eyes were
44 So he left them and went away again, and prayed the third time,
saying the same words.
45 Then came he to his disciples, and said unto them, Sleep
henceforth, and take your rest: behold, the hour is at hand, and the Son
of man is given into the hands of sinners.
46 Rise, let us go: behold, he is at hand that betrayeth me.
47 And while he yet spake, lo, Judas, one of the twelve, came, and
with him a great multitude with swords and staves, from the high Priests
and Elders of the people.
48 Now he that betrayed him, had given them a token, saying,
Whomsoever I shall kiss, that is he, lay hold on him.
49 And forthwith he came to Jesus, and said, God save thee, Master,
and kissed him.
50 Then Jesus said unto him, Friend, wherefore art thou come? Then
came they, and laid hands on Jesus, and took him.
51 And behold, one of them which were with Jesus, stretched out
his hand, and drew his sword, and struck a servant of the high Priest,
and smote off his ear.
52 Then said Jesus unto him, Put up thy sword into his place: for all
that take the sword, shall perish with the sword.
53 Either thinkest thou, that I cannot now pray to my Father, and he
will give me more than twelve legions of Angels?
54 How then should the Scriptures be fulfilled, which say,
that it must be so?
55 The same hour said Jesus to the multitude, Ye be come out as it
were against a thief, with swords and staves, to take me: I sat
daily teaching in the Temple among you, and ye took me not.
56 But all this was done, that the Scriptures of the Prophets might
be fulfilled. Then all the disciples forsook him, and fled.
57 And they took Jesus, and led him to Caiaphas the high Priest,
where the Scribes and the Elders were assembled.
58 And Peter followed him a far off unto the high Priests hall, and
went in, and sat with the servants to see the end.
59 Now the chief Priests and the Elders, and all the whole council
sought false witness against Jesus, to put him to death.
60 But they found none, and though many false witnesses came, yet
found they none: but at the last came two false witnesses,
61 And said, This man said, I can destroy the Temple of God, and
build it in three days.
62 Then the chief Priest arose, and said to him, Answerest thou
nothing? What is the matter that these men witness against thee?
63 But Jesus held his peace. Then the chief Priest answered, and said
to him, I charge thee by the living God, that thou tell us, if thou be
the Christ the Son of God.
64 Jesus said to him, Thou hast said it: nevertheless I say unto you,
hereafter shall ye see the Son of man, sitting at the right hand of the
power of God, and come in the clouds of the heaven.
65 Then the high Priest rent his clothes, saying, He hath blasphemed,
what have we any more need of witnesses? Behold, now ye have heard his
66 What think ye? They answered, and said, He is worthy to die.
67 Then spat they in his face, and buffeted him, and other smote him
with their rods,
68 Saying, Prophecy to us, O Christ, Who is he that smote thee?
69 Peter sat without in the hall: and a maid came to him, saying,
Thou also wast with Jesus of Galilee:
70 But he denied before them all, saying, I wot not what thou sayest.
71 And when he went out into the porch, another maid saw him,
and said unto them that were there, This man was also with Jesus of
72 And again he denied with an oath, saying, I know not the man.
73 So after a while, came unto him they that stood by, and said unto
Peter, Surely thou art also one of them: for even thy speech betrayeth
74 Then began he to curse himself, and to swear, saying, I
know not the man. And immediately the cock crew.
75 Then Peter remembered the words of Jesus, which had said unto him,
Before the cock crow, thou shalt deny me thrice. So he went out, and
1 When the morning was come, all the chief Priests, and the Elders of
the people took counsel against Jesus, to put him to death,
2 And led him away bound, and delivered him unto Pontius Pilate the
3 Then when Judas which betrayed him, saw that he was condemned, he
repented himself, and brought again the thirty pieces of silver
to the chief Priests, and Elders,
4 Saying, I have sinned betraying the innocent blood. But they said,
What is that to us? see thou to it.
5 And when he had cast down the silver pieces in the Temple,
he departed, and went, and hanged himself.
6 And the chief Priests took the silver pieces, and said, It
is not lawful for us to put them into the treasure, because it is the
price of blood.
7 And they took counsel, and bought with them a potters field, for
the burial of strangers.
8 Wherefore that field is called, the field of blood, until this day.
9 (Then was fulfilled that which was spoken by Jeremiah the Prophet,
saying, And they took thirty silver pieces, the price of him that
was valued, whom they of the children of Israel valued.
10 And they gave them for the potters field, as the Lord appointed
11 And Jesus stood before the governor, and the governor asked him,
saying, Art thou the King of the Jews? Jesus said unto him, Thou sayest
12 And when he was accused of the chief Priests and Elders, he
13 Then said Pilate unto him, Hearest thou not how many things they
lay against thee?
14 But he answered him not to one word, in so much that the governor
15 Now at the feast, the governor was wont to deliver unto the people
a prisoner whom they would.
16 And they had then a notable prisoner, called Barabbas.
17 When they were then gathered together, Pilate said unto them,
Whether will ye that I let loose unto you Barabbas, or Jesus
which is called Christ?
18 (For he knew well, that for envy they had delivered him.
19 Also when he was set down upon the judgment seat, his wife sent to
him, saying, Have thou nothing to do with that just man: for I have
suffered many things this day in a dream by reason of him.)
20 But the chief Priests and the Elders had persuaded the people that
they should ask Barabbas, and should destroy Jesus.
21 Then the governor answered, and said unto them, Whether of the
twain will ye that I let loose unto you? And they said, Barabbas.
22 Pilate said unto them, What shall I do then with Jesus which is
called Christ? They all said to him, Let him be crucified.
23 Then said the governor, But what evil hath he done? Then they
cried the more, saying, Let him be crucified.
24 When Pilate saw that he availed nothing, but that more tumult was
made, he took water and washed his hands before the multitude, saying, I
am innocent of the blood of this just man: look you to it.
25 Then answered all the people, and said, His blood be on us,
and on our children.
26 Thus let he Barabbas loose unto them, and scourged Jesus, and
delivered him to be crucified.
27 Then the soldiers of the governor took Jesus into the common
hall, and gathered about him the whole band,
28 And they stripped him, and put upon him a scarlet robe,
29 And platted a crown of thorns, and put it upon his head, and a
reed in his right hand, and bowed their knees before him, and mocked
him, saying, God save thee King of the Jews,
30 And spitted upon him, and took a reed, and smote him on the head.
31 Thus when they had mocked him, they took the robe from him, and
put his own raiment on him, and led him away to crucify him.
32 And as they came out, they found a man of Cyrene, named Simon: him
they compelled to bear his cross.
33 And when they came unto the place called Golgotha, (that is to
say, the place of dead mens skulls.)
34 They gave him vinegar to drink, mingled with gall: and when he had
tasted thereof, he would not drink.
35 And when they had crucified him, they parted his garments, and
did cast lots, that it might be fulfilled, which was spoken by the
Prophet, They divided my garments among them, and upon my vesture did
36 And they sat, and watched him there.
37 They set up also over his head his cause written, THIS IS JESUS
THE KING OF THE JEWS.
38 And there were two thieves crucified with him, one on the right
hand, and another on the left.
39 And they that passed by, reviled him, wagging their heads,
40 And saying, Thou that destroyest the Temple, and buildest it in
three days, save thyself: if thou be the Son of God, come down from the
41 Likewise also the high Priests mocking him, with the Scribes, and
Elders, and Pharisees, said,
42 He saved others, but he cannot save himself: if he be the
King of Israel, let him now come down from the cross, and we will
43 He trusteth in God, let him deliver him now, if he will have him:
for he said, I am the Son of God.
44 That same also the thieves which were crucified with him, cast in
45 Now from the sixth hour was there darkness over all the land, unto
the ninth hour.
46 And about the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying,
Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani? that is, My God, my God, why hast thou
47 And some of them that stood there, when they heard it, said, This
man calleth Elijah.
48 And straightway one of them ran, and took a sponge, and filled it
with vinegar, and put it on a reed, and gave him to drink.
49 Other said, Let be: let us see, if Elijah will come and save him.
50 Then Jesus cried again with a loud voice, and yielded up the
51 And behold, the veil of the Temple was rent in twain, from the top
to the bottom, and the earth did quake, and the stones were cloven.
52 And the graves did open themselves, and many bodies of the Saints
which slept, arose,
53 And came out of the graves after his resurrection, and went into
the Holy city, and appeared unto many.
54 When the Centurion, and they that were with him watching Jesus,
saw the earthquake, and the things that were done, they feared greatly,
saying, Truly this was the Son of God.
55 And many women were there, beholding him a far off, which had
followed Jesus from Galilee, ministering unto him.
56 Among whom were Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of James and
Joseph, and the mother of Zebedees sons.
57 And when the even was come, there came a rich man of Arimathea,
named Joseph, who had also himself been Jesus disciple.
58 He went to Pilate, and asked the body of Jesus. Then Pilate
commanded the body to be delivered.
59 So Joseph took the body, and wrapped it in a clean linen
60 And put it in his new tomb, which he had hewn out in a rock, and
rolled a great stone to the door of the sepulcher, and departed.
61 And there was Mary Magdalene, and the other Mary sitting over
against the sepulcher.
62 Now the next day that followed the Preparation of the
Sabbath, the high Priests and Pharisees assembled to Pilate,
63 And said, Sir, we remember that that deceiver said, while he was
yet alive, Within three days I will rise.
64 Command therefore, that the sepulcher 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 shall the last error be worse
then the first.
65 Then Pilate said unto them, Ye have a watch: go, and make it sure
as ye know.
66 And they went, and made the sepulcher sure with the watch, and
sealed the stone.
1 Now in the end of the Sabbath, when the first day of the
week began to dawn, Mary Magdalene, and the other Mary came to see the
2 And behold, there was a great earthquake: for the Angel of the Lord
descended from heaven, and came and rolled back the stone from the door,
and sat upon it.
3 And his countenance was like lightning, and his raiment white as
4 And for fear of him, the keepers were astonished, and became as
5 But the Angel answered, and said to the women, Fear ye not: for I
know that ye seek Jesus which was crucified:
6 He is not here, for he is risen; as he said: come, see the place
where the Lord was laid,
7 And go quickly, and tell his disciples that he is risen from the
dead: and behold, he goeth before you into Galilee: there ye shall see
him: lo, I have told you.
8 So they departed quickly from the sepulcher, with fear and great
joy, and did run to bring his disciples word.
9 And as they went to tell his disciples, behold, Jesus also met
them, saying, God save you. And they came, and took him by the feet, and
10 Then said Jesus unto them, Be not afraid. Go, and tell my
brethren, that they go into Galilee, and there shall they see me.
11 Now when they were gone, behold, some of the watch came into the
city, and showed unto the high Priests all the things that were done.
12 And they gathered them together with the Elders, and took counsel,
and gave large money unto the soldiers,
13 Saying, Say, His disciples came by night and stole him away while
14 And if the governor hear of this, we will persuade him, and save
15 So they took the money, and did as they were taught: and this
saying is noised among the Jews unto this day.
16 Then the eleven disciples went into Galilee, into a mountain,
where Jesus had appointed them.
17 And when they saw him, they worshipped him: but some doubted.
18 And Jesus came, and spake unto them, saying, All power is given
unto me in heaven, and in earth.
19 Go therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the Name of
the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Ghost,
20 Teaching them to observe all things, whatsoever I have commanded
you: and lo, I am with you alway, until the end of the world, Amen.
