1 And it came to pass
on the second sabbath after the first, that he went through the corn
fields; and his disciples plucked the ears of corn, and did eat, rubbing them
in their hands.
2 And certain of the Pharisees said unto them, Why do ye that
which is not lawful to do on the sabbath days?
3 And Jesus answering them said, Have ye not
read so much as this, what David did, when himself was an hungred, and
they which were with him;
4 How he went into the house of God, and did
take and eat the shewbread, and gave also to them that were with him;
which it is not lawful to eat but for the priests alone?
5 And he said unto them, That the Son of man
is Lord also of the sabbath.
6 And it came to pass also on another sabbath, that he entered
into the synagogue and taught: and there was a man whose right hand was
7 And the scribes and Pharisees watched him, whether he would heal
on the sabbath day; that they might find an accusation against him.
8 But he knew their thoughts, and said to the man which had the
withered hand, Rise up, and stand forth in the
midst. And he arose and stood forth.
9 Then said Jesus unto them, I will ask you
one thing; Is it lawful on the sabbath days to do good, or to do evil? to
save life, or to destroy it?
10 And looking round about upon them all,
he said unto the man, Stretch forth thy hand.
And he did so: and his hand was restored whole as the other.
11 And they were filled with madness; and communed one with
another what they might do to Jesus.
12 And it came to pass in those days, that he went out into a
mountain to pray, and continued all night in prayer to God.
13 And when it was day, he called unto him his disciples:
and of them he chose twelve, whom also he named apostles;
14 Simon, (whom he also named Peter,) and Andrew his brother,
James and John, Philip and Bartholomew,
15 Matthew and Thomas, James the son of Alphaeus, and Simon
16 And Judas the brother of James, and Judas Iscariot,
which also was the traitor.
17 And he came down with them, and stood in the plain, and the
company of his disciples, and a great multitude of people out of all
Judaea and Jerusalem, and from the sea coast of Tyre and Sidon, which came
to hear him, and to be healed of their diseases;
18 And they that were vexed with unclean spirits: and they were
19 And the whole multitude sought to touch him: for there went
virtue out of him, and healed them all.
20 And he lifted up his eyes on his disciples, and
said, Blessed be ye poor: for yours is the
kingdom of God.
21 Blessed are ye that hunger now:
for ye shall be filled. Blessed are ye that weep now: for ye shall
22 Blessed are ye, when men shall hate you,
and when they shall separate you from their company, and shall
reproach you, and cast out your name as evil, for the Son of manís
23 Rejoice ye in that day, and leap for joy:
for, behold, your reward is great in heaven: for in the like manner
did their fathers unto the prophets.
24 But woe unto you that are rich! for ye
have received your consolation.
25 Woe unto you that are full! for ye shall
hunger. Woe unto you that laugh now! for ye shall mourn and weep.
26 Woe unto you, when all men shall speak
well of you! for so did their fathers to the false prophets.
27 But I say unto you which hear, Love your
enemies, do good to them which hate you,
28 Bless them that curse you, and pray for
them which despitefully use you.
29 And unto him that smiteth thee on the one
cheek offer also the other; and him that taketh away thy cloke forbid not to
take thy coat also.
30 Give to every
man that asketh of thee; and of him that taketh away thy goods ask them
31 And as ye would that men should do to
you, do ye also to them likewise.
32 For if ye love them which love you, what
thank have ye? for sinners also love those that love them.
33 And if ye do good to them which do good
to you, what thank have ye? for sinners also do even the same.
34 And if ye lend to them of whom ye
hope to receive, what thank have ye? for sinners also lend to sinners, to
receive as much again.
35 But love ye your enemies, and do good,
and lend, hoping for nothing again; and your reward shall be great, and ye
shall be the children of the Highest: for he is kind unto the unthankful
and to the evil.
36 Be ye therefore merciful, as your Father
also is merciful.
37 Judge not, and ye shall not be judged:
condemn not, and ye shall not be condemned: forgive, and ye shall be
38 Give, and it shall be given unto you;
good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall
men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it
shall be measured to you again.
39 And he spake a parable unto them, Can the
blind lead the blind? shall they not both fall into the ditch?
40 The disciple is
not above his master: but every one that is perfect shall be as his
41 And why beholdest thou the mote that is
in thy brotherís eye, but perceivest not the beam that is in thine own
42 Either how canst thou say to thy brother,
Brother, let me pull out the mote that is in thine eye, when thou thyself
beholdest not the beam that is in thine own eye? Thou hypocrite, cast out
first the beam out of thine own eye, and then shalt thou see clearly to
pull out the mote that is in thy brotherís eye.
43 For a good tree bringeth not forth
corrupt fruit; neither doth a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.
44 For every tree is known by his own fruit.
For of thorns men do not gather figs, nor of a bramble bush gather they
45 A good man out of the good treasure of
his heart bringeth forth that which is good; and an evil man out of the
evil treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is evil: for of the
abundance of the heart his mouth speaketh.
46 And why call ye me, Lord, Lord, and do
not the things which I say?
47 Whosoever cometh to me, and heareth my
sayings, and doeth them, I will shew you to whom he is like:
48 He is like a man which built an house,
and digged deep, and laid the foundation on a rock: and when the flood
arose, the stream beat vehemently upon that house, and could not shake it:
for it was founded upon a rock.
49 But he that heareth, and doeth not, is
like a man that without a foundation built an house upon the earth;
against which the stream did beat vehemently, and immediately it fell; and
the ruin of that house was great.
