beginning of the gospel of Jesus Christ, the Son of God;
As it is written in the prophets, Behold, I send my messenger
before your face, which shall prepare your way before you.
The voice of one crying in the wilderness, Prepare all of
you the way of the Lord, make his paths straight.
John did baptize in the wilderness, and preach the baptism
of repentance for the remission of sins.
And there went out unto him all the land of Judaea, and
they of Jerusalem, and were all baptized of him in the river of Jordan, confessing
John was clothed with camel's hair, and with a girdle of a skin about his loins;
and he did eat locusts and wild honey;
And preached, saying, There comes one mightier than I after
me, the latchet of whose shoes I am not worthy to stoop down and unloose.
1:8 I indeed
have baptized you with water: but he shall baptize you with the Holy Spirit. (o.
it came to pass in those days, that Jesus came from Nazareth of Galilee, and was
baptized of John in Jordan.
And immediately coming up out of the water, he saw the heavens
opened, and the Spirit (o. pneuma) like a dove descending upon him:
And there came a voice from heaven, saying, You are my beloved
Son, in whom I am well pleased.
And immediately the spirit (o. pneuma) drives him into the
he was there in the wilderness forty days, tempted of Satan; and was with the
wild beasts; and the angels ministered unto him.
Now after that John was put in prison, Jesus came into Galilee,
preaching the gospel of the kingdom of God,
And saying, The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God
is at hand: repent all of you, and believe the gospel.
Now as he walked by the sea of Galilee, he saw Simon and
Andrew his brother casting a net into the sea: for they were fishers.
Jesus said unto them, Come all of you after me, and I will make you to become
fishers of men.
immediately they forsook their nets, and followed him.
And when he had gone a little farther thence, he saw James
the son of Zebedee, and John his brother, who also were in the ship mending their
immediately he called them: and they left their father Zebedee in the ship with
the hired servants, and went after him.
And they went into Capernaum; and immediately on the sabbath
day he entered into the synagogue, and taught.
And they were astonished at his doctrine: for he taught
them as one that had authority, and not as the scribes.
And there was in their synagogue a man with an unclean spirit;
(o. pneuma) and he cried out,
Saying, Let us alone; what have we to do with you, you Jesus
of Nazareth? are you come to destroy us? I know you who you are, the Holy One
Jesus rebuked him, saying, Hold your peace, and come out of him.
And when the unclean spirit (o. pneuma) had torn him, and
cried with a loud voice, he came out of him.
And they were all amazed, insomuch that they questioned
among themselves, saying, What thing is this? what new doctrine is this? for with
authority commands he even the unclean spirits, (o. pneuma) and they do obey him.
immediately his fame spread abroad throughout all the region round about Galilee.
forthwith, when they were come out of the synagogue, they entered into the house
of Simon and Andrew, with James and John.
But Simon's wife's mother lay sick of a fever, and soon
they tell him of her.
And he came and took her by the hand, and lifted her up;
and immediately the fever left her, and she ministered unto them.
And at even, when the sun did set, they brought unto him
all that were diseased, and them that were possessed with devils.
And all the city was gathered together at the door.
he healed many that were sick of divers diseases, and cast out many devils; and
suffered not the devils to speak, because they knew him.
And in the morning, rising up a great while before day,
he went out, and departed into a solitary place, and there prayed.
And Simon and they that were with him followed after him.
when they had found him, they said unto him, All men seek for you.
And he said unto them, Let us go into the next towns, that
I may preach there also: for therefore came I forth.
And he preached in their synagogues throughout all Galilee,
and cast out devils.
And there came a leper to him, beseeching him, and kneeling
down to him, and saying unto him, If you will, you can make me clean.
Jesus, moved with compassion, put forth his hand, and touched him, and says unto
him, I will; be you clean.
And as soon as he had spoken, immediately the leprosy departed
from him, and he was cleansed.
And he strictly charged him, and forthwith sent him away;
says unto him, See you say nothing to any man: but go your way, show yourself
to the priest, and offer for your cleansing those things which Moses commanded,
for a testimony unto them.
But he went out, and began to publish it much, and to blaze
abroad the matter, (o. logos) insomuch that Jesus could no more openly enter into
the city, but was without in desert places: and they came to him from every quarter.
again he entered into Capernaum after some days; and it was noised that he was
in the house.
immediately many were gathered together, insomuch that there was no room to receive
them, no, not so much as about the door: and he preached the word (o. logos) unto
they come unto him, bringing one sick of the palsy, which was borne of four.
2:4 And when
they could not come nigh unto him for the press, they uncovered the roof where
he was: and when they had broken it up, they let down the bed wherein the sick
of the palsy lay.
Jesus saw their faith, he said unto the sick of the palsy, Son, your sins be forgiven
there was certain of the scribes sitting there, and reasoning in their hearts,
does this man thus speak blasphemies? who can forgive sins but God only?
2:8 And immediately
when Jesus perceived in his spirit (o. pneuma) that they so reasoned within themselves,
he said unto them, Why reason all of you these things in your hearts?
is it easier to say to the sick of the palsy, Your sins be forgiven you; or to
say, Arise, and take up your bed, and walk?
But that all of you may know that the Son of man has power
on earth to forgive sins, (he says to the sick of the palsy,)
I say unto you, Arise, and take up your bed, and go your
way into yours house.
And immediately he arose, took up the bed, and went forth
before them all; insomuch that they were all amazed, and glorified God, saying,
We never saw it on this fashion.
And he went forth again by the sea side; and all the multitude
resorted unto him, and he taught them.
And as he passed by, he saw Levi the son of Alphaeus sitting
at the receipt of custom, and said unto him, Follow me. And he arose and followed
it came to pass, that, as Jesus sat at food in his house, many publicans and sinners
sat also together with Jesus and his disciples: for there were many, and they
when the scribes and Pharisees saw him eat with publicans and sinners, they said
unto his disciples, How is it that he eats and drinks with publicans and sinners?
Jesus heard it, he says unto them, They that are whole have no need of the physician,
but they that are sick: I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.
the disciples of John and of the Pharisees used to fast: and they come and say
unto him, Why do the disciples of John and of the Pharisees fast, but your disciples
Jesus said unto them, Can the children of the bride-chamber fast, while the bridegroom
is with them? as long as they have the bridegroom with them, they cannot fast.
the days will come, when the bridegroom shall be taken away from them, and then
shall they fast in those days.
No man also sews a piece of new cloth on an old garment:
else the new piece that filled it up takes away from the old, and the rent is
no man puts new wine into old bottles: else the new wine does burst the bottles,
and the wine is spilled, and the bottles will be ruined: but new wine must be
put into new bottles.
And it came to pass, that he went through the corn fields
on the sabbath day; and his disciples began, as they went, to pluck the ears of
the Pharisees said unto him, Behold, why do they on the sabbath day that which
is not lawful?
he said unto them, Have all of you never read what David did, when he had need,
and was an hungered, he, and they that were with him?
How he went into the house of God in the days of Abiathar
the high priest, and did eat the showbread, which is not lawful to eat but for
the priests, and gave also to them which were with him?
And he said unto them, The sabbath was made for man, and
not man for the sabbath:
Therefore the Son of man is Lord also of the sabbath.
3:1 And he
entered again into the synagogue; and there was a man there which had a withered
they watched him, whether he would heal him on the sabbath day; that they might
he says unto the man which had the withered hand, Stand forth.
And he says unto them, Is it lawful to do good on the sabbath
days, or to do evil? to save life, or to kill? But they held their peace.
3:5 And when
he had looked round about on them with anger, being grieved for the hardness of
their hearts, he says unto the man, Stretch forth yours hand. And he stretched
it out: and his hand was restored whole as the other.
And the Pharisees went forth, and immediately took counsel
with the Herodians against him, how they might destroy him.
But Jesus withdrew himself with his disciples to the sea:
and a great multitude from Galilee followed him, and from Judaea,
And from Jerusalem, and from Idumaea, and from beyond Jordan;
and they about Tyre and Sidon, a great multitude, when they had heard what great
things he did, came unto him.
And he spoke to his disciples, that a small ship should
wait on him because of the multitude, lest they should crowd upon him.
he had healed many; insomuch that they pressed upon him in order to touch him,
as many as had plagues.
And unclean spirits, (o. pneuma) when they saw him, fell
down before him, and cried, saying, You are the Son of God.
And he strictly charged them that they should not make him
he goes up into a mountain, and calls unto him whom he would: and they came unto
he ordained twelve, that they should be with him, and that he might send them
forth to preach,
to have power to heal sicknesses, and to cast out devils:
And Simon he surnamed Peter;
And James the son of Zebedee, and John the brother of James;
and he surnamed them Boanerges, which is, The sons of thunder:
And Andrew, and Philip, and Bartholomew, and Matthew, and
Thomas, and James the son of Alphaeus, and Thaddaeus, and Simon the Canaanite,
Judas Iscariot, which also betrayed him: and they went into an house.
the multitude comes together again, so that they could not so much as eat bread.
when his friends heard of it, they went out to lay hold on him: for they said,
He is beside himself.
And the scribes which came down from Jerusalem said, He
has Beelzebub, and by the prince of the devils casts he out devils.
And he called them unto him, and said unto them in parables,
How can Satan cast out Satan?
And if a kingdom be divided against itself, that kingdom
if a house be divided against itself, that house cannot stand.
And if Satan rise up against himself, and be divided, he
cannot stand, but has an end.
No man can enter into a strong man's house, and spoil his
goods, except he will first bind the strong man; and then he will spoil his house.
I say unto you, All sins shall be forgiven unto the sons of men, and blasphemies
wherewith whatsoever they shall blaspheme:
But he that shall blaspheme against the Holy Spirit (o.
pneuma) has never forgiveness, but is in danger of eternal damnation.
they said, He has an unclean spirit. (o. pneuma)
There came then his brethren and his mother, and, standing
without, sent unto him, calling him.
And the multitude sat about him, and they said unto him,
Behold, your mother and your brethren without seek for you.
And he answered them, saying, Who is my mother, or my brethren?
he looked round about on them which sat about him, and said, Behold my mother
and my brethren!
whosoever shall do the will of God, the same is my brother, and my sister, and
he began again to teach by the sea side: and there was gathered unto him a great
multitude, so that he entered into a ship, and sat in the sea; and the whole multitude
was by the sea on the land.
And he taught them many things by parables, and said unto
them in his doctrine,
Hearken; Behold, there went out a sower to sow:
4:4 And it
came to pass, as he sowed, some fell by the way side, and the fowls of the air
came and devoured it up.
And some fell on stony ground, where it had not much earth;
and immediately it sprang up, because it had no depth of earth:
But when the sun was up, it was scorched; and because it
had no root, it withered away.
And some fell among thorns, and the thorns grew up, and
choked it, and it yielded no fruit.
And other fell on good ground, and did yield fruit that
sprang up and increased; and brought forth, some thirty, and some sixty, and some
he said unto them, He that has ears to hear, let him hear.
And when he was alone, they that were about him with the
twelve asked of him the parable.
And he said unto them, Unto you it is given to know the
mystery of the kingdom of God: but unto them that are without, all these things
are done in parables:
That seeing they may see, and not perceive; and hearing
they may hear, and not understand; lest at any time they should be converted,
and their sins should be forgiven them.
And he said unto them, Know all of you not this parable?
and how then will all of you know all parables?
The sower sows the word. (o. logos)
And these are they by the way side, where the word (o. logos)
is sown; but when they have heard, Satan comes immediately, and takes away the
word (o. logos) that was sown in their hearts.
And these are they likewise which are sown on stony ground;
who, when they have heard the word, (o. logos) immediately receive it with gladness;
have no root in themselves, and so endure but for a time: afterward, when affliction
or persecution arises for the word's sake, (o. logos) immediately they are offended.
these are they which are sown among thorns; such as hear the word, (o. logos)
the cares of this world, and the deceitfulness of riches, and the lusts of other
things entering in, choke the word, (o. logos) and it becomes unfruitful.
these are they which are sown on good ground; such as hear the word, (o. logos)
and receive it, and bring forth fruit, some thirtyfold, some sixty, and some an
he said unto them, Is a candle brought to be put under a bushel, or under a bed?
and not to be set on a candlestick?
For there is nothing hid, which shall not be manifested;
neither was any thing kept secret, but that it should come abroad.
If any man have ears to hear, let him hear.
And he said unto them, Take heed what all of you hear: with
what measure all of you mete, it shall be measured to you: and unto you that hear
shall more be given.
For he that has, to him shall be given: and he that has
not, from him shall be taken even that which he has.
And he said, So is the kingdom of God, as if a man should
cast seed into the ground;
And should sleep, and rise night and day, and the seed should
spring and grow up, he knows not how.
For the earth brings forth fruit of herself; first the blade,
then the ear, after that the full corn in the ear.
But when the fruit is brought forth, immediately he puts
in the sickle, because the harvest has come.
And he said, Unto which shall we liken the kingdom of God?
or with what comparison shall we compare it?
It is like a grain of mustard seed, which, when it is sown
in the earth, is less than all the seeds that be in the earth:
But when it is sown, it grows up, and becomes greater than
all herbs, and shoots out great branches; so that the fowls of the air may lodge
under the shadow of it.
And with many such parables spoke he the word (o. logos)
unto them, as they were able to hear it.
But without a parable spoke he not unto them: and when they
were alone, he expounded all things to his disciples.
And the same day, when the even was come, he says unto them,
Let us pass over unto the other side.
And when they had sent away the multitude, they took him
even as he was in the ship. And there were also with him other little ships.
there arose a great storm of wind, and the waves beat into the ship, so that it
was now full.
he was in the hinder part of the ship, asleep on a pillow: and they awake him,
and say unto him, Master, care you not that we perish?
And he arose, and rebuked the wind, and said unto the sea,
Peace, be still. And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm.
And he said unto them, Why are all of you so fearful? how
is it that all of you have no faith?
And they feared exceedingly, and said one to another, What
manner of man is this, that even the wind and the sea obey him?
And they came over unto the other side of the sea, into
the country of the Gadarenes.
And when he was come out of the ship, immediately there
met him out of the tombs a man with an unclean spirit, (o. pneuma)
Who had his dwelling among the tombs; and no man could bind
him, no, not with chains:
Because that he had been often bound with fetters and chains,
and the chains had been plucked asunder by him, and the fetters broken in pieces:
neither could any man tame him.
And always, night and day, he was in the mountains, and
in the tombs, crying, and cutting himself with stones.
But when he saw Jesus far off, he ran and worshipped him,
cried with a loud voice, and said, What have I to do with you, Jesus, you Son
of the most high God? I adjure you by God, that you torment me not.
For he said unto him, Come out of the man, you unclean spirit.
he asked him, What is your name? And he answered, saying, My name is Legion: for
we are many.
he besought him much that he would not send them away out of the country.
there was there nigh unto the mountains a great herd of swine feeding.
all the devils besought him, saying, Send us into the swine, that we may enter
forthwith Jesus gave them leave. And the unclean spirits (o. pneuma) went out,
and entered into the swine: and the herd ran violently down a steep place into
the sea, (they were about two thousand;) and were choked in the sea.
And they that fed the swine fled, and told it in the city,
and in the country. And they went out to see what it was that was done.
they come to Jesus, and see him that was possessed with the devil, and had the
legion, sitting, and clothed, and in his right mind: and they were afraid.
they that saw it told them how it befell to him that was possessed with the devil,
and also concerning the swine.
And they began to pray him to depart out of their coasts.
when he was come into the ship, he that had been possessed with the devil prayed
him that he might be with him.
Nevertheless Jesus suffered him not, but says unto him,
Go home to your friends, and tell them how great things the Lord has done for
you, and has had compassion on you.
And he departed, and began to publish in Decapolis how great
things Jesus had done for him: and all men did marvel.
And when Jesus was passed over again by ship unto the other
side, much people gathered unto him: and he was nigh unto the sea.
And, behold, there comes one of the rulers of the synagogue,
Jairus by name; and when he saw him, he fell at his feet,
And besought him greatly, saying, My little daughter lies
at the point of death: I pray you, come and lay your hands on her, that she may
be healed; and she shall live.
And Jesus went with him; and much people followed him, and
a certain woman, which had an issue of blood twelve years,
And had suffered many things of many physicians, and had
spent all that she had, and was nothing improved, but rather grew worse,
she had heard of Jesus, came in the press behind, and touched his garment.
she said, If I may touch but his clothes, I shall be whole.
And immediately the fountain of her blood was dried up;
and she felt in her body that she was healed of that plague.
And Jesus, immediately knowing in himself that virtue had
gone out of him, turned him about in the press, and said, Who touched my clothes?
his disciples said unto him, You see the multitude thronging you, and says you,
Who touched me?
he looked round about to see her that had done this thing.
But the woman fearing and trembling, knowing what was done
in her, came and fell down before him, and told him all the truth.
And he said unto her, Daughter, your faith has made you
whole; go in peace, and be whole of your plague.
While he yet spoke, there came from the ruler of the synagogue's
house certain which said, Your daughter is dead: why trouble you the Master any
soon as Jesus heard the word (o. logos) that was spoken, he says unto the ruler
of the synagogue, Be not afraid, only believe.
And he suffered no man to follow him, save Peter, and James,
and John the brother of James.
And he comes to the house of the ruler of the synagogue,
and sees the tumult, and them that wept and wailed greatly.
And when he was come in, he says unto them, Why make all
of you this disturbance, and weep? the damsel is not dead, but sleeps.
they laughed him to scorn. But when he had put them all out, he takes the father
and the mother of the damsel, and them that were with him, and enters in where
the damsel was lying.
And he took the damsel by the hand, and said unto her, Talitha
cumi; which is, being interpreted, Damsel, I say unto you, arise.
And immediately the damsel arose, and walked; for she was
of the age of twelve years. And they were astonished with a great astonishment.
he charged them strictly that no man should know it; and commanded that something
should be given her to eat.
And he went out from thence, and came into his own country;
and his disciples follow him.
And when the sabbath day was come, he began to teach in
the synagogue: and many hearing him were astonished, saying, From whence has this
man these things? and what wisdom is this which is given unto him, that even such
mighty works are wrought by his hands?
Is not this the carpenter, the son of Mary, the brother
of James, and Joses, and of Juda, and Simon? and are not his sisters here with
us? And they were offended at him.
But Jesus, said unto them, A prophet is not without honour,
but in his own country, and among his own kin, and in his own house.
And he could there do no mighty work, save that he laid
his hands upon a few sick folk, and healed them.
And he marvelled because of their unbelief. And he went
round about the villages, teaching.
And he called unto him the twelve, and began to send them
forth by two and two; and gave them power over unclean spirits; (o. pneuma)
6:8 And commanded
them that they should take nothing for their journey, save a staff only; no pouch,
no bread, no money in their purse:
But be shod with sandals; and not put on two coats.
he said unto them, In what place whatsoever all of you enter into an house, there
abide till all of you depart from that place.
And whosoever shall not receive you, nor hear you, when
all of you depart thence, shake off the dust under your feet for a testimony against
them. Verily I say unto you, It shall be more tolerable for Sodom and Gomorrha
in the day of judgment, than for that city.
And they went out, and preached that men should repent.
they cast out many devils, and anointed with oil many that were sick, and healed
king Herod heard of him; (for his name was spread abroad:) and he said, That John
the Baptist was risen from the dead, and therefore mighty works do show forth
themselves in him.
Others said, That it is Elijah. And others said, That it
is a prophet, or as one of the prophets.
But when Herod heard thereof, he said, It is John, whom
I beheaded: he has risen from the dead.
For Herod himself had sent forth and laid hold upon John,
and bound him in prison for Herodias' sake, his brother Philip's wife: for he
had married her.
John had said unto Herod, It is not lawful for you to have your brother's wife.
Herodias had a quarrel against him, and would have killed him; but she could not:
Herod feared John, knowing that he was a just man and an holy, and observed him;
and when he heard him, he did many things, and heard him gladly.
And when a convenient day was come, that Herod on his birthday
made a supper to his lords, high captains, and chief estates of Galilee;
when the daughter of the said Herodias came in, and danced, and pleased Herod
and them that sat with him, the king said unto the damsel, Ask of me whatsoever
you will, and I will give it you.
And he swore unto her, Whatsoever you shall ask of me, I
will give it you, unto the half of my kingdom.
And she went forth, and said unto her mother, What shall
I ask? And she said, The head of John the Baptist.
And she came in immediately with haste unto the king, and
asked, saying, I will that you give me by and by in a charger the head of John
the king was exceeding sorry; yet for his oath's sake, and for their sakes which
sat with him, he would not reject her.
And immediately the king sent an executioner, and commanded
his head to be brought: and he went and beheaded him in the prison,
And brought his head in a charger, and gave it to the damsel:
and the damsel gave it to her mother.
And when his disciples heard of it, they came and took up
his corpse, and laid it in a tomb.
And the apostles gathered themselves together unto Jesus,
and told him all things, both what they had done, and what they had taught.
he said unto them, Come all of you yourselves apart into a desert place, and rest
a while: for there were many coming and going, and they had no leisure so much
as to eat.
they departed into a desert place by ship privately.
And the people saw them departing, and many knew him, and
ran on foot thither out of all cities, and advanced before them, and came together
Jesus, when he came out, saw much people, and was moved with compassion toward
them, because they were as sheep not having a shepherd: and he began to teach
them many things.
And when the day was now far spent, his disciples came unto
him, and said, This is a desert place, and now the time is far passed:
them away, that they may go into the country round about, and into the villages,
and buy themselves bread: for they have nothing to eat.
He answered and said unto them, Give all of you them to
eat. And they say unto him, Shall we go and buy two hundred pennyworth of bread,
and give them to eat?
He says unto them, How many loaves have all of you? go and
see. And when they knew, they say, Five, and two fishes.
And he commanded them to make all sit down by companies
upon the green grass.
And they sat down in ranks, by hundreds, and by fifties.
when he had taken the five loaves and the two fishes, he looked up to heaven,
and blessed, and brake the loaves, and gave them to his disciples to set before
them; and the two fishes divided he among them all.
And they did all eat, and were filled.
And they took up twelve baskets full of the fragments, and
of the fishes.
they that did eat of the loaves were about five thousand men.
And immediately he constrained his disciples to get into
the ship, and to go to the other side before unto Bethsaida, while he sent away
when he had sent them away, he departed into a mountain to pray.
And when even was come, the ship was in the midst of the
sea, and he alone on the land.
And he saw them toiling in rowing; for the wind was contrary
unto them: and about the fourth watch of the night he comes unto them, walking
upon the sea, and would have passed by them.
But when they saw him walking upon the sea, they supposed
it had been a spirit, and cried out:
For they all saw him, and were troubled. And immediately
he talked with them, and says unto them, Be of good cheer: it is I; be not afraid.
he went up unto them into the ship; and the wind ceased: and they were sore amazed
in themselves beyond measure, and wondered.
For they considered not the miracle of the loaves: for their
heart was hardened.
And when they had passed over, they came into the land of
Gennesaret, and drew to the shore.
And when they were come out of the ship, immediately they
ran through that whole region round about, and began to carry about in beds those
that were sick, where they heard he was.
And anywhere he entered, into villages, or cities, or country,
they laid the sick in the streets, and besought him that they might touch if it
were but the border of his garment: and as many as touched him were made whole.
came together unto him the Pharisees, and certain of the scribes, which came from
when they saw some of his disciples eat bread with defiled, that is to say, with
unwashed, hands, they found fault.
For the Pharisees, and all the Jews, except they wash their
hands often, eat not, holding the tradition of the elders.
And when they come from the market, except they wash, they
eat not. And many other things there be, which they have received to hold, as
the washing of cups, and pots, brazen vessels, and of tables.
Then the Pharisees and scribes asked him, Why walk not your
disciples according to the tradition of the elders, but eat bread with unwashed
answered and said unto them, Well has Isaiah prophesied of you hypocrites, as
it is written, This people honors me with their lips, but their heart is far from
in vain do they worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.
7:8 For laying
aside the commandment of God, all of you hold the tradition of men, as the washing
of pots and cups: and many other such like things all of you do.
And he said unto them, Full well all of you reject the commandment
of God, that all of you may keep your own tradition.
For Moses said, Honour your father and your mother; and,
Whoso curses father or mother, let him die the death:
But all of you say, If a man shall say to his father or
mother, It is Corban, that is to say, a gift, by whatsoever you might be profited
by me; he shall be free.
And all of you suffer him no more to do ought for his father
or his mother;
the word (o. logos) of God of no effect through your tradition, which all of you
have delivered: and many such like things do all of you.
And when he had called all the people unto him, he said
unto them, Hearken unto me every one of you, and understand:
There is nothing from without a man, that entering into
him can defile him: but the things which come out of him, those are they that
defile the man.
any man have ears to hear, let him hear.
And when he was entered into the house from the people,
his disciples asked him concerning the parable.
And he says unto them, Are all of you so without understanding
also? Do all of you not perceive, that whatsoever thing from without enters into
the man, it cannot defile him;
Because it enters not into his heart, but into the belly,
and goes out into the draught, purging all meats?
And he said, That which comes out of the man, that defiles
from within, out of the heart of men, proceed evil thoughts, adulteries, fornications,
covetousness, wickedness, deceit, lasciviousness, an evil eye, blasphemy, pride,
these evil things come from within, and defile the man.
And from thence he arose, and went into the borders of Tyre
and Sidon, and entered into an house, and would have no man know it: but he could
not be hid.
a certain woman, whose young daughter had an unclean spirit, (o. pneuma) heard
of him, and came and fell at his feet:
The woman was a Greek, a Syrophenician by nation; and she
besought him that he would cast forth the devil out of her daughter.
But Jesus said unto her, Let the children first be filled:
for it is not meet to take the children's bread, and to cast it unto the dogs.
she answered and said unto him, Yes, Lord: yet the dogs under the table eat of
the children's crumbs.
And he said unto her, For this saying (o. logos) go your
way; the devil is gone out of your daughter.
And when she was come to her house, she found the devil
gone out, and her daughter laid upon the bed.
And again, departing from the coasts of Tyre and Sidon,
he came unto the sea of Galilee, through the midst of the coasts of Decapolis.
they bring unto him one that was deaf, and had an barrier in his speech; and they
plead to him to put his hand upon him.
And he took him aside from the multitude, and put his fingers
into his ears, and he spit, and touched his tongue;
And looking up to heaven, he sighed, and says unto him,
Ephphatha, that is, Be opened.
And immediately his ears were opened, and the string of
his tongue was loosed, and he spoke plain.
And he charged them that they should tell no man: but the
more he charged them, so much the more a great deal they published it;
were beyond measure astonished, saying, He has done all things well: he makes
both the deaf to hear, and the dumb to speak.
In those days the multitude being very great, and having
nothing to eat, Jesus called his disciples unto him, and says unto them,
8:2 I have
compassion on the multitude, because they have now been with me three days, and
have nothing to eat:
And if I send them away fasting to their own houses, they
will faint by the way: for divers of them came from far.
And his disciples answered him, From whence can a man satisfy
these men with bread here in the wilderness?
And he asked them, How many loaves have all of you? And
they said, Seven.
he commanded the people to sit down on the ground: and he took the seven loaves,
and gave thanks, and brake, and gave to his disciples to set before them; and
they did set them before the people.
And they had a few small fishes: and he blessed, and commanded
to set them also before them.
So they did eat, and were filled: and they took up of the
broken food that was left seven baskets.
And they that had eaten were about four thousand: and he
sent them away.
immediately he entered into a ship with his disciples, and came into the parts
the Pharisees came forth, and began to question with him, seeking of him a sign
from heaven, tempting him.
And he sighed deeply in his spirit, (o. pneuma) and says,
Why does this generation seek after a sign? verily I say unto you, There shall
no sign be given unto this generation.
And he left them, and entering into the ship again departed
to the other side.
Now the disciples had forgotten to take bread, neither had
they in the ship with them more than one loaf.
And he charged them, saying, Take heed, beware of the leaven
of the Pharisees, and of the leaven of Herod.
And they reasoned among themselves, saying, It is because
we have no bread.
And when Jesus knew it, he says unto them, Why reason all
of you, because all of you have no bread? perceive all of you not yet, neither
understand? have all of you your heart yet hardened?
Having eyes, see all of you not? and having ears, hear all
of you not? and do all of you not remember?
When I brake the five loaves among five thousand, how many
baskets full of fragments took all of you up? They say unto him, Twelve.
when the seven among four thousand, how many baskets full of fragments took all
of you up? And they said, Seven.
And he said unto them, How is it that all of you do not
he comes to Bethsaida; and they bring a blind man unto him, and besought him to
he took the blind man by the hand, and led him out of the town; and when he had
spit on his eyes, and put his hands upon him, he asked him if he saw ought.
he looked up, and said, I see men as trees, walking.
After that he put his hands again upon his eyes, and made
him look up: and he was restored, and saw every man clearly.
And he sent him away to his house, saying, Neither go into
the town, nor tell it to any in the town.
And Jesus went out, and his disciples, into the towns of
Caesarea Philippi: and by the way he asked his disciples, saying unto them, Whom
do men say that I am?
And they answered, John the Baptist; but some say, Elijah;
and others, One of the prophets.
And he says unto them, But whom say all of you that I am?
And Peter answers and says unto him, You are the Christ.
And he charged them that they should tell no man of him.
he began to teach them, that the Son of man must suffer many things, and be rejected
of the elders, and of the chief priests, and scribes, and be killed, and after
three days rise again.
And he spoke that saying (o. logos) openly. And Peter took
him, and began to rebuke him.
But when he had turned about and looked on his disciples,
he rebuked Peter, saying, Get you behind me, Satan: for you savour not the things
that be of God, but the things that be of men.
And when he had called the people unto him with his disciples
also, he said unto them, Whosoever will come after me, let him deny himself, and
take up his cross, and follow me.
For whosoever will save his life shall lose it; but whosoever
shall lose his life for my sake and the gospel's, the same shall save it.
what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own
what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?
Whosoever therefore shall be ashamed of me and of my words
(o. logos) in this adulterous and sinful generation; of him also shall the Son
of man be ashamed, when he comes in the glory of his Father with the holy angels.
he said unto them, Verily I say unto you, That there be some of them that stand
here, which shall not taste of death, till they have seen the kingdom of God come
after six days Jesus takes with him Peter, and James, and John, and leads them
up into an high mountain apart by themselves: and he was transfigured before them.
his raiment became shining, exceeding white as snow; so as no launderer on earth
can white them.
there appeared unto them Elijah with Moses: and they were talking with Jesus.
Peter answered and said to Jesus, Master, it is good for us to be here: and let
us make three tabernacles; one for you, and one for Moses, and one for Elijah.
he knows not what to say; for they were sore afraid.
And there was a cloud that overshadowed them: and a voice
came out of the cloud, saying, This is my beloved Son: hear him.
And suddenly, when they had looked round about, they saw
no man any more, save Jesus only with themselves.
And as they came down from the mountain, he charged them
that they should tell no man what things they had seen, till the Son of man were
risen from the dead.
And they kept that saying (o. logos) with themselves, questioning
one with another what the rising from the dead should mean.
And they asked him, saying, Why say the scribes that Elijah
must first come?
he answered and told them, Elijah verily comes first, and restores all things;
and how it is written of the Son of man, that he must suffer many things, and
be set at nothing.
But I say unto you, That Elijah is indeed come, and they
have done unto him whatsoever they listed, as it is written of him.
And when he came to his disciples, he saw a great multitude
about them, and the scribes questioning with them.
And immediately all the people, when they beheld him, were
greatly amazed, and running to him saluted him.
And he asked the scribes, What question all of you with
one of the multitude answered and said, Master, I have brought unto you my son,
which has a dumb spirit; (o. pneuma)
And where ever he takes him, he tears him: and he foams,
and gnashes with his teeth, and pins away: and I spoke to your disciples that
they should cast him out; and they could not.
He answers him, and says, O faithless generation, how long
shall I be with you? how long shall I suffer you? bring him unto me.
And they brought him unto him: and when he saw him, immediately
the spirit (o. pneuma) tare him; and he fell on the ground, and wallowed foaming.
he asked his father, How long is it ago since this came unto him? And he said,
Of a child.
frequently it has cast him into the fire, and into the waters, to destroy him:
but if you can do any thing, have compassion on us, and help us.
Jesus said unto him, If you can believe, all things are
possible to him that believes.
And immediately the father of the child cried out, and said
with tears, Lord, I believe; help you mine unbelief.
When Jesus saw that the people came running together, he
rebuked the foul spirit, (o. pneuma) saying unto him, You dumb and deaf spirit,
(o. pneuma) I charge you, come out of him, and enter no more into him.
the spirit cried, and rent him sore, and came out of him: and he was as one dead;
insomuch that many said, He is dead.
But Jesus took him by the hand, and lifted him up; and he
when he was come into the house, his disciples asked him privately, Why could
not we cast him out?
And he said unto them, This kind can come forth by nothing,
but by prayer and fasting.
And they departed thence, and passed through Galilee; and
he would not that any man should know it.
For he taught his disciples, and said unto them, The Son
of man is delivered into the hands of men, and they shall kill him; and after
that he is killed, he shall rise the third day.
But they understood not that saying, (o. rhema) and were
afraid to ask him.
And he came to Capernaum: and being in the house he asked
them, What was it that all of you disputed among yourselves by the way?
they held their peace: for by the way they had disputed among themselves, who
should be the greatest.
And he sat down, and called the twelve, and says unto them,
If any man desire to be first, the same shall be last of all, and servant of all.
he took a child, and set him in the midst of them: and when he had taken him in
his arms, he said unto them,
Whosoever shall receive one of such children in my name,
receives me: and whosoever shall receive me, receives not me, but him that sent
John answered him, saying, Master, we saw one casting out devils in your name,
and he follows not us: and we forbad him, because he follows not us.
But Jesus said, Forbid him not: for there is no man which
shall do a miracle in my name, that can lightly speak evil of me.
For he that is not against us is on our part.
For whosoever shall give you a cup of water to drink in
my name, because all of you belong to Christ, verily I say unto you, he shall
not lose his reward.
And whosoever shall offend one of these little ones that
believe in me, it is better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck,
and he were cast into the sea.
And if your hand offend you, cut it off: it is better for
you to enter into life physically disabled, than having two hands to go into hell,
into the fire that never shall be quenched:
Where their worm dies not, and the fire is not quenched.
if your foot offend you, cut it off: it is better for you to enter halt into life,
than having two feet to be cast into hell, into the fire that never shall be quenched:
their worm dies not, and the fire is not quenched.
And if yours eye offend you, pluck it out: it is better
for you to enter into the kingdom of God with one eye, than having two eyes to
be cast into hell fire:
Where their worm dies not, and the fire is not quenched.
every one shall be salted with fire, and every sacrifice shall be salted with
is good: but if the salt have lost his saltiness, wherewith will all of you season
it? Have salt in yourselves, and have peace one with another.
And he arose from thence, and comes into the coasts of Judaea
by the farther side of Jordan: and the people resort unto him again; and, as he
was known, he taught them again.
And the Pharisees came to him, and asked him, Is it lawful
for a man to put away his wife? tempting him.
And he answered and said unto them, What did Moses command
they said, Moses suffered to write a bill of divorcement, and to put her away.
Jesus answered and said unto them, For the hardness of your heart he wrote you
from the beginning of the creation God made them male and female.
For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother,
and cleave to his wife;
And they two shall be one flesh: so then they are no more
two, but one flesh.
What therefore God has joined together, let not man put
in the house his disciples asked him again of the same matter.
And he says unto them, Whosoever shall put away his wife,
and marry another, commits adultery against her.
And if a woman shall put away her husband, and be married
to another, she commits adultery.
And they brought young children to him, that he should touch
them: and his disciples rebuked those that brought them.
But when Jesus saw it, he was much displeased, and said
unto them, Suffer the little children to come unto me, and forbid them not: for
of such is the kingdom of God.
Verily I say unto you, Whosoever shall not receive the kingdom
of God as a little child, he shall not enter therein.
And he took them up in his arms, put his hands upon them,
and blessed them.
And when he was gone forth into the way, there came one
running, and kneeled to him, and asked him, Good Master, what shall I do that
I may inherit eternal life?
And Jesus said unto him, Why call you me good? there is
none good but one, that is, God.
You know the commandments, Do not commit adultery, Do not
kill, Do not steal, Do not bear false witness, Defraud not, Honour your father
he answered and said unto him, Master, all these have I observed from my youth.
Jesus beholding him loved him, and said unto him, One thing you lack: go your
way, sell whatsoever you have, and give to the poor, and you shall have treasure
in heaven: and come, take up the cross, and follow me.
And he was sad at that saying, (o. logos) and went away
grieved: for he had great possessions.
And Jesus looked round about, and says unto his disciples,
How hardly shall they that have riches enter into the kingdom of God!
the disciples were astonished at his words. (o. logos) But Jesus answers again,
and says unto them, Children, how hard is it for them that trust in riches to
enter into the kingdom of God!
It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle,
than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God.
And they were astonished out of measure, saying among themselves,
Who then can be saved?
And Jesus looking upon them says, With men it is impossible,
but not with God: for with God all things are possible.
Then Peter began to say unto him, Lo, we have left all,
and have followed you.
And Jesus answered and said, Verily I say unto you, There
is no man that has left house, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother,
or wife, or children, or lands, for my sake, and the gospel's,
But he shall receive an hundredfold now in this time, houses,
and brethren, and sisters, and mothers, and children, and lands, with persecutions;
and in the world to come eternal life.
But many that are first shall be last; and the last first.
they were in the way going up to Jerusalem; and Jesus went before them: and they
were amazed; and as they followed, they were afraid. And he took again the twelve,
and began to tell them what things should happen unto him,
Saying, Behold, we go up to Jerusalem; and the Son of man
shall be delivered unto the chief priests, and unto the scribes; and they shall
condemn him to death, and shall deliver him to the Gentiles:
And they shall mock him, and shall scourge him, and shall
spit upon him, and shall kill him: and the third day he shall rise again.
James and John, the sons of Zebedee, come unto him, saying, Master, we would that
you should do for us whatsoever we shall desire.
And he said unto them, What would all of you that I should
do for you?
said unto him, Grant unto us that we may sit, one on your right hand, and the
other on your left hand, in your glory.
But Jesus said unto them, All of you know not what all of
you ask: can all of you drink of the cup that I drink of? and be baptized with
the baptism that I am baptized with?
And they said unto him, We can. And Jesus said unto them,
All of you shall indeed drink of the cup that I drink of; and with the baptism
that I am baptized likewise shall all of you be baptized:
But to sit on my right hand and on my left hand is not mine
to give; but it shall be given to them for whom it is prepared.
And when the ten heard it, they began to be much displeased
with James and John.
But Jesus called them to him, and says unto them, All of
you know that they which are accounted to rule over the Gentiles exercise lordship
over them; and their great ones exercise authority upon them.
But so shall it not be among you: but whosoever will be
great among you, shall be your minister:
And whosoever of you will be the chiefest, shall be servant
even the Son of man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give
his life a ransom for many.
And they came to Jericho: and as he went out of Jericho
with his disciples and a great number of people, blind Bartimaeus, the son of
Timaeus, sat by the highway side begging.
And when he heard that it was Jesus of Nazareth, he began
to cry out, and say, Jesus, you son of David, have mercy on me.
And many charged him that he should hold his peace: but
he cried the more a great deal, You son of David, have mercy on me.
And Jesus stood still, and commanded him to be called. And
they call the blind man, saying unto him, Be of good comfort, rise; he calls you.
he, casting away his garment, rose, and came to Jesus.
And Jesus answered and said unto him, What will you that
I should do unto you? The blind man said unto him, Lord, that I might receive
Jesus said unto him, Go your way; your faith has made you whole. And immediately
he received his sight, and followed Jesus in the way.
And when they came nigh to Jerusalem, unto Bethphage and
Bethany, at the mount of Olives, he sends forth two of his disciples,
says unto them, Go your way into the village opposite to you: and as soon as all
of you be entered into it, all of you shall find a colt tied, whereon never man
sat; loose him, and bring him.
And if any man say unto you, Why do all of you this? say
all of you that the Lord has need of him; and immediately he will send him here.
they went their way, and found the colt tied by the door without in a place where
two ways met; and they loose him.
And certain of them that stood there said unto them, What
do all of you, loosing the colt?
And they said unto them even as Jesus had commanded: and
they let them go.
And they brought the colt to Jesus, and cast their garments
on him; and he sat upon him.
And many spread their garments in the way: and others cut
down branches off the trees, and scattered them in the way.
And they that went before, and they that followed, cried,
saying, Hosanna; Blessed is he that comes in the name of the Lord:
Blessed be the kingdom of our father David, that comes in
the name of the Lord: Hosanna in the highest.
And Jesus entered into Jerusalem, and into the temple: and
when he had looked round about upon all things, and now the evening was come,
he went out unto Bethany with the twelve.
And on the next day, when they were come from Bethany, he
seeing a fig tree far off having leaves, he came, if lest by any means he might
find any thing thereon: and when he came to it, he found nothing but leaves; for
the time of figs was not yet.
And Jesus answered and said unto it, No man eat fruit of
you hereafter for ever. And his disciples heard it.
And they come to Jerusalem: and Jesus went into the temple,
and began to cast out them that sold and bought in the temple, and overthrew the
tables of the moneychangers, and the seats of them that sold doves;
And would not suffer that any man should carry any vessel
through the temple.
And he taught, saying unto them, Is it not written, My house
shall be called of all nations the house of prayer? but all of you have made it
a den of thieves.
And the scribes and chief priests heard it, and sought how
they might destroy him: for they feared him, because all the people was astonished
at his doctrine.
And when even was come, he went out of the city.
in the morning, as they passed by, they saw the fig tree dried up from the roots.
Peter calling to remembrance says unto him, Master, behold, the fig tree which
you cursed is withered away.
And Jesus answering says unto them, Have faith in God.
verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be you removed,
and be you cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe
that those things which he says shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he
I say unto you, What things whatsoever all of you desire, when all of you pray,
believe that all of you receive them, and all of you shall have them.
when all of you stand praying, forgive, if all of you have ought against any:
that your Father also which is in heaven may forgive you your trespasses.
if all of you do not forgive, neither will your Father which is in heaven forgive
And they come again to Jerusalem: and as he was walking
in the temple, there come to him the chief priests, and the scribes, and the elders,
say unto him, By what authority do you these things? and who gave you this authority
to do these things?
And Jesus answered and said unto them, I will also ask of
you one question, (o. logos) and answer me, and I will tell you by what authority
I do these things.
The baptism of John, was it from heaven, or of men? answer
they reasoned with themselves, saying, If we shall say, From heaven; he will say,
Why then did all of you not believe him?
But if we shall say, Of men; they feared the people: for
all men counted John, that he was a prophet indeed.
And they answered and said unto Jesus, We cannot tell. And
Jesus answering says unto them, Neither do I tell you by what authority I do these
he began to speak unto them by parables. A certain man planted a vineyard, and
set an hedge about it, and dug a place for the winepress, and built a tower, and
let it out to husbandmen, and went into a far country.
And at the season he sent to the husbandmen a servant, that
he might receive from the husbandmen of the fruit of the vineyard.
And they caught him, and beat him, and sent him away empty.
again he sent unto them another servant; and at him they cast stones, and wounded
him in the head, and sent him away shamefully handled.
And again he sent another; and him they killed, and many
others; beating some, and killing some.
Having yet therefore one son, his beloved, he sent him also
last unto them, saying, They will reverence my son.
But those husbandmen said among themselves, This is the
heir; come, let us kill him, and the inheritance shall be our's.
And they took him, and killed him, and cast him out of the
shall therefore the lord of the vineyard do? he will come and destroy the husbandmen,
and will give the vineyard unto others.
And have all of you not read this scripture; The stone which
the builders rejected is become the head of the corner:
This was the Lord's doing, and it is marvellous in our eyes?
they sought to lay hold on him, but feared the people: for they knew that he had
spoken the parable against them: and they left him, and went their way.
they send unto him certain of the Pharisees and of the Herodians, to catch him
in his words. (o. logos)
And when they were come, they say unto him, Master, we know
that you are true, and care for no man: for you regard not the person of men,
but teach the way of God in truth: Is it lawful to give tribute to Caesar, or
we give, or shall we not give? But he, knowing their hypocrisy, said unto them,
Why tempt all of you me? bring me a penny, that I may see it.
And they brought it. And he says unto them, Whose is this
image and superscription? And they said unto him, Caesar's.
And Jesus answering said unto them, Render to Caesar the
things that are Caesar's, and to God the things that are God's. And they marvelled
come unto him the Sadducees, which say there is no resurrection; and they asked
Moses wrote unto us, If a man's brother die, and leave his wife behind him, and
leave no children, that his brother should take his wife, and raise up seed unto
there were seven brethren: and the first took a wife, and dying left no seed.
the second took her, and died, neither left he any seed: and the third likewise.
the seven had her, and left no seed: last of all the woman died also.
the resurrection therefore, when they shall rise, whose wife shall she be of them?
for the seven had her to wife.
And Jesus answering said unto them, Do all of you not therefore
go astray, because all of you know not the scriptures, neither the power of God?
when they shall rise from the dead, they neither marry, nor are given in marriage;
but are as the angels which are in heaven.
And as concerning the dead, that they rise: have all of
you not read in the book of Moses, how in the bush God spoke unto him, saying,
I am the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob?
He is not the God of the dead, but the God of the living:
all of you therefore do greatly go astray.
And one of the scribes came, and having heard them reasoning
together, and perceiving that he had answered them well, asked him, Which is the
first commandment of all?
And Jesus answered him, The first of all the commandments
is, Hear, O Israel; The Lord our God is one Lord:
And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart,
and with all your soul, and with all your mind, and with all your strength: this
is the first commandment.
And the second is like, namely this, You shall love your
neighbour as yourself. There is no other commandment greater than these.
the scribe said unto him, Well, Master, you have said the truth: for there is
one God; and there is no other but he:
And to love him with all the heart, and with all the understanding,
and with all the soul, and with all the strength, and to love his neighbour as
himself, is more than all whole burnt offerings and sacrifices.
And when Jesus saw that he answered discreetly, he said
unto him, You are not far from the kingdom of God. And no man after that durst
ask him any question.
And Jesus answered and said, while he taught in the temple,
How say the scribes that Christ is the son of David?
For David himself said by the Holy Spirit, (o. pneuma) The
LORD said to my Lord, Sit you on my right hand, till I make yours enemies your
therefore himself calls him Lord; and whence is he then his son? And the common
people heard him gladly.
And he said unto them in his doctrine, Beware of the scribes,
which love to go in long clothing, and love salutations in the marketplaces,
the chief seats in the synagogues, and the uppermost rooms at feasts:
devour widows' houses, and for a pretence make long prayers: these shall receive
And Jesus sat opposite to the treasury, and beheld how the
people cast money into the treasury: and many that were rich cast in much.
there came a certain poor widow, and she threw in two mites, which make a farthing.
he called unto him his disciples, and says unto them, Verily I say unto you, That
this poor widow has cast more in, than all they which have cast into the treasury:
all they did cast in of their abundance; but she of her lack did cast in all that
she had, even all her living.
And as he went out of the temple, one of his disciples says
unto him, Master, see what manner of stones and what buildings are here!
Jesus answering said unto him, See you these great buildings? there shall not
be left one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down.
And as he sat upon the mount of Olives opposite to the temple,
Peter and James and John and Andrew asked him privately,
Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the
sign when all these things shall be fulfilled?
And Jesus answering them began to say, Take heed lest any
man deceive you:
many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.
when all of you shall hear of wars and rumours of wars, be all of you not troubled:
for such things must essentially be; but the end shall not be yet.
For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against
kingdom: and there shall be earthquakes in divers places, and there shall be famines
and troubles: these are the beginnings of sorrows.
But take heed to yourselves: for they shall deliver you
up to councils; and in the synagogues all of you shall be beaten: and all of you
shall be brought before rulers and kings for my sake, for a testimony against
the gospel must first be published among all nations.
But when they shall lead you, and deliver you up, take no
thought beforehand what all of you shall speak, neither do all of you premeditate:
but whatsoever shall be given you in that hour, that speak all of you: for it
is not all of you that speak, but the Holy Spirit. (o. pneuma)
Now the brother shall betray the brother to death, and the
father the son; and children shall rise up against their parents, and shall cause
them to be put to death.
And all of you shall be hated of all men for my name's sake:
but he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.
But when all of you shall see the abomination of desolation,
spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing where it ought not, (let him that reads
understand,) then let them that be in Judaea flee to the mountains:
And let him that is on the housetop not go down into the
house, neither enter therein, to take any thing out of his house:
And let him that is in the field not turn back again in
order to take up his garment.
But woe to them that are with child, and to them that give
suck in those days!
And pray all of you that your flight be not in the winter.
in those days shall be affliction, such as was not from the beginning of the creation
which God created unto this time, neither shall be.
And except that the Lord had shortened those days, no flesh
should be saved: but for the elect's sake, whom he has chosen, he has shortened
then if any man shall say to you, Lo, here is Christ; or, lo, he is there; believe
false Christs and false prophets shall rise, and shall show signs and wonders,
to seduce, if it were possible, even the elect.
But take all of you heed: behold, I have foretold you all
in those days, after that tribulation, the sun shall be darkened, and the moon
shall not give her light,
And the stars of heaven shall fall, and the powers that
are in heaven shall be shaken.
And then shall they see the Son of man coming in the clouds
with great power and glory.
And then shall he send his angels, and shall gather together
his elect from the four winds, from the uttermost part of the earth to the uttermost
part of heaven.
learn a parable of the fig tree; When her branch is yet tender, and puts forth
leaves, all of you know that summer is near:
So all of you in like manner, when all of you shall see
these things come to pass, know that it is nigh, even at the doors.
Verily I say unto you, that this generation shall not pass,
till all these things be done.
Heaven and earth shall pass away: but my words (o. logos)
shall not pass away.
But of that day and that hour knows no man, no, not the
angels which are in heaven, neither the Son, but the Father.
Take all of you heed, watch and pray: for all of you know
not when the time is.
For the Son of Man is as a man taking a far journey, who
left his house, and gave authority to his servants, and to every man his work,
and commanded the gate keeper to watch.
Watch all of you therefore: for all of you know not when
the master of the house comes, at even, or at midnight, or at the cockcrowing,
or in the morning:
Lest coming suddenly he find you sleeping.
And what I say unto you I say unto all, Watch.
After two days was the feast of the passover, and of unleavened
bread: and the chief priests and the scribes sought how they might take him by
craft, and put him to death.
But they said, Not on the feast day, lest there be an uproar
of the people.
being in Bethany in the house of Simon the leper, as he sat at food, there came
a woman having an alabaster box of ointment of spikenard very precious; and she
brake the box, and poured it on his head.
And there were some that had indignation within themselves,
and said, Why was this waste of the ointment made?
For it might have been sold for more than three hundred
pence, and have been given to the poor. And they murmured against her.
Jesus said, Let her alone; why trouble all of you her? she has wrought a good
work on me.
all of you have the poor with you always, and whenever all of you will all of
you may do them good: but me all of you have not always.
She has done what she could: she has come beforehand to
anoint my body to the burying.
Verily I say unto you, Where ever this gospel shall be preached
throughout the whole world, this also that she has done shall be spoken of for
a memorial of her.
And Judas Iscariot, one of the twelve, went unto the chief
priests, to betray him unto them.
And when they heard it, they were glad, and promised to
give him money. And he sought how he might conveniently betray him.
And the first day of unleavened bread, when they killed
the passover, his disciples said unto him, Where will you that we go and prepare
that you may eat the passover?
And he sends forth two of his disciples, and says unto them,
Go all of you into the city, and there shall meet you a man bearing a pitcher
of water: follow him.
And where ever he shall go in, say all of you to the goodman
of the house, The Master says, Where is the guest room, where I shall eat the
passover with my disciples?
And he will show you a large upper room furnished and prepared:
there make ready for us.
And his disciples went forth, and came into the city, and
found as he had said unto them: and they made ready the passover.
And in the evening he comes with the twelve.
And as they sat and did eat, Jesus said, Verily I say unto
you, One of you which eats with me shall betray me.
And they began to be sorrowful, and to say unto him one
by one, Is it I? and another said, Is it I?
And he answered and said unto them, It is one of the twelve,
that dips with me in the dish.
The Son of man indeed goes, as it is written of him: but
woe to that man by whom the Son of man is betrayed! good were it for that man
if he had never been born.
And as they did eat, Jesus took bread, and blessed, and
brake it, and gave to them, and said, Take, eat: this is my body.
And he took the cup, and when he had given thanks, he gave
it to them: and they all drank of it.
And he said unto them, This is my blood of the new testament,
which is shed for many.
Verily I say unto you, I will drink no more of the fruit
of the vine, until that day that I drink it new in the kingdom of God.
when they had sung an hymn, they went out into the mount of Olives.
And Jesus says unto them, All you shall be offended because
of me this night: for it is written, I will strike the shepherd, and the sheep
shall be scattered.
But after that I am risen, I will go before you into Galilee.
Peter said unto him, Although all shall be offended, yet will not I.
And Jesus says unto him, Verily I say unto you, That this
day, even in this night, before the cock crow twice, you shall deny me three times.
he spoke the more vehemently, If I should die with you, I will not deny you in
any way. Likewise also said they all.
And they came to a place which was named Gethsemane: and
he says to his disciples, Sit all of you here, while I shall pray.
And he takes with him Peter and James and John, and began
to be sore amazed, and to be very heavy;
And says unto them, My soul is exceeding sorrowful unto
death: tarry all of you here, and watch.
And he went forward a little, and fell on the ground, and
prayed that, if it were possible, the hour might pass from him.
And he said, Abba, Father, all things are possible unto
you; take away this cup from me: nevertheless not what I will, but what you will.
he comes, and finds them sleeping, and says unto Peter, Simon, sleep you? could
not you watch one hour?
Watch all of you and pray, lest all of you enter into temptation.
The spirit (o. pneuma) truly is ready, but the flesh is weak.
And again he went away, and prayed, and spoke the same words.
when he returned, he found them asleep again, (for their eyes were heavy,) neither
know they what to answer him.
And he comes the third time, and says unto them, Sleep on
now, and take your rest: it is enough, the hour has come; behold, the Son of man
is betrayed into the hands of sinners.
Rise up, let us go; lo, he that betrays me is at hand.
immediately, while he yet spoke, comes Judas, one of the twelve, and with him
a great multitude with swords and staves, from the chief priests and the scribes
and the elders.
he that betrayed him had given them a token, saying, Whomsoever I shall kiss,
that same is he; take him, and lead him away safely.
And as soon as he was come, he goes immediately to him,
and says, Master, master; and kissed him.
And they laid their hands on him, and took him.
one of them that stood by drew a sword, and stroke a servant of the high priest,
and cut off his ear.
And Jesus answered and said unto them, Are all of you come
out, as against a thief, with swords and with staves to take me?
I was daily with you in the temple teaching, and all of
you took me not: but the scriptures must be fulfilled.
And they all forsook him, and fled.
And there followed him a certain young man, having a linen
cloth cast about his naked body; and the young men laid hold on him:
And he left the linen cloth, and fled from them naked.
they led Jesus away to the high priest: and with him were assembled all the chief
priests and the elders and the scribes.
And Peter followed him far off, even into the palace of
the high priest: and he sat with the servants, and warmed himself at the fire.
the chief priests and all the council sought for witness against Jesus to put
him to death; and found none.
For many bare false witness against him, but their witness
agreed not together.
And there arose certain, and bare false witness against
heard him say, I will destroy this temple that is made with hands, and within
three days I will build another made without hands.
But neither so did their witness agree together.
the high priest stood up in the midst, and asked Jesus, saying, Answer you nothing?
what is it which these witness against you?
But he held his peace, and answered nothing. Again the high
priest asked him, and said unto him, Are you the Christ, the Son of the Blessed?
Jesus said, I am: and all of you shall see the Son of man sitting on the right
hand of power, and coming in the clouds of heaven.
Then the high priest rent his clothes, and says, What need
we any further witnesses?
All of you have heard the blasphemy: what think all of you?
And they all condemned him to be guilty of death.
And some began to spit on him, and to cover his face, and
to buffet him, and to say unto him, Prophesy: and the servants did strike him
with the palms of their hands.
And as Peter was beneath in the palace, there comes one
of the maids of the high priest:
And when she saw Peter warming himself, she looked upon
him, and said, And you also were with Jesus of Nazareth.
But he denied, saying, I know not, neither understand I
what you says. And he went out into the porch; and the cock crew.
And a maid saw him again, and began to say to them that
stood by, This is one of them.
And he denied it again. And a little after, they that stood
by said again to Peter, Surely you are one of them: for you are a Galilaean, and
your speech agrees thereto.
But he began to curse and to swear, saying, I know not this
man of whom all of you speak.
And the second time the cock crew. And Peter called to mind
the word (o. rhema) that Jesus said unto him, Before the cock crow twice, you
shall deny me three times. And when he thought thereon, he wept.
And immediately in the morning the chief priests held a
consultation with the elders and scribes and the whole council, and bound Jesus,
and carried him away, and delivered him to Pilate.
And Pilate asked him, Are you the King of the Jews? And
he answering said unto them, You says it.
And the chief priests accused him of many things: but he
And Pilate asked him again, saying, Answer you nothing?
behold how many things they witness against you.
But Jesus yet answered nothing; so that Pilate marvelled.
at that feast he released unto them one prisoner, whomsoever they desired.
there was one named Barabbas, which lay bound with them that had made insurrection
with him, who had committed murder in the insurrection.
And the multitude crying aloud began to desire him to do
as he had ever done unto them.
But Pilate answered them, saying, Will all of you that I
release unto you the King of the Jews?
For he knew that the chief priests had delivered him for
the chief priests moved the people, that he should rather release Barabbas unto
Pilate answered and said again unto them, What will all of you then that I shall
do unto him whom all of you call the King of the Jews?
And they cried out again, Crucify him.
Then Pilate said unto them, Why, what evil has he done?
And they cried out the more exceedingly, Crucify him.
And so Pilate, willing to content the people, released Barabbas
unto them, and delivered Jesus, when he had scourged him, to be crucified.
the soldiers led him away into the hall, called Praetorium; and they call together
the whole band.
they clothed him with purple, and intertwined a crown of thorns, and put it about
began to salute him, Hail, King of the Jews!
And they stroke him on the head with a reed, and did spit
upon him, and bowing their knees worshipped him.
And when they had mocked him, they took off the purple from
him, and put his own clothes on him, and led him out to crucify him.
And they compel one Simon a Cyrenian, who passed by, coming
out of the country, the father of Alexander and Rufus, to bear his cross.
they bring him unto the place Golgotha, which is, being interpreted, The place
of a skull.
they gave him to drink wine mingled with myrrh: but he received it not.
when they had crucified him, they parted his garments, casting lots upon them,
what every man should take.
And it was the third hour, and they crucified him.
the superscription of his accusation was written over, THE KING OF THE JEWS.
with him they crucify two thieves; the one on his right hand, and the other on
the scripture was fulfilled, which says, And he was numbered with the transgressors.
they that passed by railed on him, wagging their heads, and saying, Ah, you that
destroys the temple, and build it in three days,
Save yourself, and come down from the cross.
Likewise also the chief priests mocking said among themselves
with the scribes, He saved others; himself he cannot save.
Let Christ the King of Israel descend now from the cross,
that we may see and believe. And they that were crucified with him reviled him.
when the sixth hour was come, there was darkness over the whole land until the
at the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying, Eloi, Eloi, lama sabachthani?
which is, being interpreted, My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?
some of them that stood by, when they heard it, said, Behold, he calls Elijah.
one ran and filled a sponge full of vinegar, and put it on a reed, and gave him
to drink, saying, Let alone; let us see whether Elijah will come to take him down.
Jesus cried with a loud voice, and gave up the spirit.
And the veil of the temple was rent in two from the top
to the bottom.
when the centurion, which stood opposite to him, saw that he so cried out, and
gave up the spirit, he said, Truly this man was the Son of God.
There were also women looking on far off: among whom was
Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of James the less and of Joses, and Salome;
also, when he was in Galilee, followed him, and ministered unto him;) and many
other women which came up with him unto Jerusalem.
And now when the even was come, because it was the preparation,
that is, the day before the sabbath,
Joseph of Arimathaea, an honourable counsellor, which also
waited for the kingdom of God, came, and went in boldly unto Pilate, and craved
the body of Jesus.
And Pilate marvelled if he were already dead: and calling
unto him the centurion, he asked him whether he had been any while dead.
when he knew it of the centurion, he gave the body to Joseph.
And he bought fine linen, and took him down, and wrapped
him in the linen, and laid him in a tomb which was hewn out of a rock, and rolled
a stone unto the door of the tomb.
And Mary Magdalene and Mary the mother of Joses beheld where
he was laid.
when the sabbath was past, Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of James, and Salome,
had bought sweet spices, that they might come and anoint him.
And very early in the morning the first day of the week,
they came unto the tomb at the rising of the sun.
And they said among themselves, Who shall roll us away the
stone from the door of the tomb?
And when they looked, they saw that the stone was rolled
away: for it was very great.
And entering into the tomb, they saw a young man sitting
on the right side, clothed in a long white garment; and they were affrighted.
he says unto them, Be not affrighted: All of you seek Jesus of Nazareth, which
was crucified: he has risen; he is not here: behold the place where they laid
go your way, tell his disciples and Peter that he goes before you into Galilee:
there shall all of you see him, as he said unto you.
And they went out quickly, and fled from the tomb; for they
trembled and were amazed: neither said they any thing to any man; for they were
when Jesus was risen early the first day of the week, he appeared first to Mary
Magdalene, out of whom he had cast seven devils.
And she went and told them that had been with him, as they
mourned and wept.
And they, when they had heard that he was alive, and had
been seen of her, believed not.
After that he appeared in another form unto two of them,
as they walked, and went into the country.
And they went and told it unto the residue: neither believed
he appeared unto the eleven as they sat at food, and upbraided them with their
unbelief and hardness of heart, because they believed not them which had seen
him after he was risen.
And he said unto them, Go all of you into all the world,
and preach the gospel to every creature.
He that believes and is baptized shall be saved; but he
that believes not shall be damned.
And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name
shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues;
They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly
thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall
then after the Lord had spoken unto them, he was received up into heaven, and
sat on the right hand of God.
And they went forth, and preached every where, the Lord
working with them, and confirming the word (o. logos) with signs following. Amen.
