HE book of the generation of
Jesus Christ, the son of David, the son of Abraham.
1:2 Abraham begat Isaac; and Isaac begat Jacob; and
Jacob begat Judas and his brethren;
1:3 And Judas begat Phares and Zara of Thamar; and
Phares begat Esrom; and Esrom begat Aram;
1:4 And Aram begat Aminadab; and Aminadab begat Naasson;
and Naasson begat Salmon;
1:5 And Salmon begat Booz of Rachab; and Booz begat Obed
of Ruth; and Obed begat Jesse;
1:6 And Jesse begat David the king; and David the king
begat Solomon of her that had been the wife of
1:7 And Solomon begat Roboam; and Roboam begat Abia; and
Abia begat Asa;
1:8 And Asa begat Josaphat; and Josaphat begat Joram;
and Joram begat Ozias;
1:9 And Ozias begat Joatham; and Joatham begat Achaz;
and Achaz begat Ezekias;
1:10 And Ezekias begat Manasses; and Manasses begat
Amon; and Amon begat Josias;
1:11 And Josias begat Jechonias and his brethren, about
the time they were carried away to Babylon:
1:12 And after they were brought to Babylon, Jechonias
begat Salathiel; and Salathiel begat Zorobabel;
1:13 And Zorobabel begat Abiud; and Abiud begat Eliakim;
and Eliakim begat Azor;
1:14 And Azor begat Sadoc; and Sadoc begat Achim; and
Achim begat Eliud;
1:15 And Eliud begat Eleazar; and Eleazar begat Matthan;
and Matthan begat Jacob;
1:16 And Jacob begat Joseph the husband of Mary, of whom
was born Jesus, who is called Christ.
1:17 So all the generations from Abraham to David
are fourteen generations; and from David until the
carrying away into Babylon are fourteen generations; and
from the carrying away into Babylon unto Christ are
1:18 Now the birth of Jesus Christ was on this wise:
When as his mother Mary was espoused to Joseph, before they
came together, she was found with child of the Holy Ghost.
1:19 Then Joseph her husband, being a just man,
and not willing to make her a public example, was minded to put
her away privily.
1:20 But while he thought on these things, behold, the
angel of the Lord appeared unto him in a dream, saying, Joseph,
thou son of David, fear not to take unto thee Mary thy wife:
for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Ghost.
1:21 And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt
call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their
1:22 Now all this was done, that it might be fulfilled
which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet, saying,
1:23 Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall
bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which
being interpreted is, God with us.
1:24 Then Joseph being raised from sleep did as the
angel of the Lord had bidden him, and took unto him his
1:25 And knew her not till she had brought forth her
firstborn son: and he called his name JESUS.

1: | Verses: 25 | Words: 473 ]
OW when Jesus was born in
Bethlehem of Judaea in the days of Herod the king, behold,
there came wise men from the east to Jerusalem,
2:2 Saying, Where is he that is born King of the Jews?
for we have seen his star in the east, and are come to worship
2:3 When Herod the king had heard these things,
he was troubled, and all Jerusalem with him.
2:4 And when he had gathered all the chief priests and
scribes of the people together, he demanded of them where
Christ should be born.
2:5 And they said unto him, In Bethlehem of Judaea: for
thus it is written by the prophet,
2:6 And thou Bethlehem, in the land of Juda, art
not the least among the princes of Juda: for out of thee shall
come a Governor, that shall rule my people Israel.
2:7 Then Herod, when he had privily called the wise men,
inquired of them diligently what time the star appeared.
2:8 And he sent them to Bethlehem, and said, Go and
search diligently for the young child; and when ye have found
him, bring me word again, that I may come and worship
2:9 When they had heard the king, they departed; and,
lo, the star, which they saw in the east, went before them,
till it came and stood over where the young child was.
2:10 When they saw the star, they rejoiced with
exceeding great joy.
2:11 And when they were come into the house, they saw
the young child with Mary his mother, and fell down, and
worshipped him: and when they had opened their treasures, they
presented unto him gifts; gold, and frankincense, and
2:12 And being warned of God in a dream that they should
not return to Herod, they departed into their own country
2:13 And when they were departed, behold, the angel of
the Lord appeareth to Joseph in a dream, saying, Arise, and
take the young child and his mother, and flee into Egypt, and
be thou there until I bring thee word: for Herod will seek the
young child to destroy him.
2:14 When he arose, he took the young child and his
mother by night, and departed into Egypt:
2:15 And was there until 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.
2:16 Then Herod, when he saw that he was mocked of the
wise men, was exceeding wroth, and sent forth, and slew all the
children that were in Bethlehem, and in all the coasts thereof,
from two years old and under, according to the time which he
had diligently inquired of the wise men.
2:17 Then was fulfilled that which was spoken by Jeremy
the prophet, saying,
2:18 In Rama was there a voice heard, lamentation, and
weeping, and great mourning, Rachel weeping for her
children, and would not be comforted, because they are not.
2:19 But when Herod was dead, behold, an angel of the
Lord appeareth in a dream to Joseph in Egypt,
2:20 Saying, Arise, and take the young child and his
mother, and go into the land of Israel: for they are dead which
sought the young child's life.
2:21 And he arose, and took the young child and his
mother, and came into the land of Israel.
2:22 But when he heard that Archelaus did reign in
Judaea in the room of his father Herod, he was afraid to go
thither: notwithstanding, being warned of God in a dream, he
turned aside into the parts of Galilee:
2:23 And he came and dwelt in a city called Nazareth:
that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophets, He
shall be called a Nazarene.

2: | Verses: 23 | Words: 619 ]
N those days came John the
Baptist, preaching in the wilderness of Judaea,
3:2 And saying, Repent ye: for the kingdom of heaven is
3:3 For this is he that was spoken of by the prophet
Esaias, saying, The voice of one crying in the wilderness,
Prepare ye the way of the Lord, make his paths straight.
3:4 And the same John had his raiment of camel's hair,
and a leathern girdle about his loins; and his meat was locusts
and wild honey.
3:5 Then went out to him Jerusalem, and all Judaea, and
all the region round about Jordan,
3:6 And were baptized of him in Jordan, confessing their
3:7 But when he saw many of the Pharisees and Sadducees
come to his baptism, he said unto them, O generation of vipers,
who hath warned you to flee from the wrath to come?
3:8 Bring forth therefore fruits meet for
3:9 And think not to say within 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.
3:10 And now also the axe is laid unto the root of the
trees: therefore every tree which bringeth not forth good fruit
is hewn down, and cast into the fire.
3:11 I indeed baptize you with water unto repentance:
but he that cometh after me is mightier than I, whose shoes I
am not worthy to bear: he shall baptize you with the Holy
Ghost, and with fire:
3:12 Whose fan is in his hand, and he will
throughly purge his floor, and gather his wheat into the
garner; but he will burn up the chaff with unquenchable
3:13 Then cometh Jesus from Galilee to Jordan unto John,
to be baptized of him.
3:14 But John forbad him, saying, I have need to be
baptized of thee, and comest thou to me?
3:15 And Jesus answering said unto him, Suffer it to be so now: for thus it becometh
us to fulfil all righteousness. Then he suffered
3:16 And Jesus, when he was baptized, went up
straightway out of the water: and, lo, the heavens were opened
unto him, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove,
and lighting upon him:
3:17 And lo a voice from heaven, saying, This is my
beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.

3: | Verses: 17 | Words: 387 ]
HEN was Jesus led up of the
Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted of the devil.
4:2 And when he had fasted forty days and forty nights,
he was afterward an hungered.
4:3 And when the tempter came to him, he said, If thou
be the Son of God, command that these stones be made bread.
4:4 But he answered and said, It
is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every
word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.
4:5 Then the devil taketh him up into the holy city, and
setteth him on a pinnacle of the temple,
4:6 And saith unto him, If thou be the Son of God, cast
thyself down: for it is written, He shall give his angels
charge concerning thee: and in their hands they shall
bear thee up, lest at any time thou dash thy foot against a
4:7 Jesus said unto him, It is
written again, Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy
4:8 Again, the devil taketh him up into an exceeding
high mountain, and sheweth him all the kingdoms of the world,
and the glory of them;
4:9 And saith unto him, All these things will I give
thee, if thou wilt fall down and worship me.
4:10 Then saith Jesus unto him, Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt
worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou
4:11 Then the devil leaveth him, and, behold, angels
came and ministered unto him.
4:12 Now when Jesus had heard that John was cast into
prison, he departed into Galilee;
4:13 And leaving Nazareth, he came and dwelt in
Capernaum, which is upon the sea coast, in the borders of
Zabulon and Nephthalim:
4:14 That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by
Esaias the prophet, saying,
4:15 The land of Zabulon, and the land of Nephthalim,
by the way of the sea, beyond Jordan, Galilee of the
4:16 The people which sat in darkness saw great light;
and to them which sat in the region and shadow of death light
is sprung up.
4:17 From that time Jesus began to preach, and to say,
Repent: for the kingdom of heaven is at
4:18 And Jesus, walking by the sea of Galilee, saw two
brethren, Simon called Peter, and Andrew his brother, casting a
net into the sea: for they were fishers.
4:19 And he saith unto them, Follow me, and I will make you fishers of
4:20 And they straightway left their nets, and
4:21 And going on from thence, he saw other two
brethren, James the son of Zebedee, and John his
brother, in a ship with Zebedee their father, mending their
nets; and he called them.
4:22 And they immediately left the ship and their
father, and followed him.
4:23 And Jesus went about all Galilee, teaching in their
synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and
healing all manner of sickness and all manner of disease among
4:24 And his fame went throughout all Syria: and they
brought unto him all sick people that were taken with divers
diseases and torments, and those which were possessed with
devils, and those which were lunatic, and those that had the
palsy; and he healed them.

5:3 Blessed are the poor in
spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
5:4 Blessed are they that
mourn: for they shall be comforted.
5:5 Blessed are the meek:
for they shall inherit the earth.
5:6 Blessed are they which
do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be
5:7 Blessed are the
merciful: for they shall obtain mercy.
5:8 Blessed are the pure in
heart: for they shall see God.
5:9 Blessed are the
peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of
5:10 Blessed are they which
are persecuted for righteousness' sake: for theirs is the
kingdom of heaven.
5:11 Blessed are ye, when
men shall revile you, and persecute you, and
shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my
5:12 Rejoice, and be exceeding
glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so
persecuted they the prophets which were before you.
5:13 Ye are the salt of the earth:
but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be
salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out,
and to be trodden under foot of men.
5:14 Ye are the light of the
world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid.
5:15 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.
5:16 Let your light so shine
before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your
Father which is in heaven.
5:17 Think not that I am come to
destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but
5:18 For verily I say unto you,
Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no
wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.
5:19 Whosoever therefore shall
break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so,
he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but
whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be
called great in the kingdom of heaven.
5:20 For I say unto you, That
except your righteousness shall exceed the righteousness
of the scribes and Pharisees, ye shall in no case enter into
the kingdom of heaven.
5:21 Ye have heard that it was
said by them of old time, Thou shalt not kill; and whosoever
shall kill shall be in danger of the judgment:
5:22 But I say unto you, That
whosoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in
danger of the judgment: and whosoever shall say to his brother,
Raca, shall be in danger of the council: but whosoever shall
say, Thou fool, shall be in danger of hell fire.
5:23 Therefore if thou bring thy
gift to the altar, and there rememberest that thy brother hath
aught against thee;
5:24 Leave there thy gift before
the altar, and go thy way; first be reconciled to thy brother,
and then come and offer thy gift.
5:25 Agree with thine adversary
quickly, whiles thou art in the way with him; lest at any time
the adversary deliver thee to the judge, and the judge deliver
thee to the officer, and thou be cast into prison.

shalt by no means come out thence, till thou hast paid the

said by them of old time, Thou shalt not commit

whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed
adultery with her already in his heart.
5:29 And if thy right eye offend
thee, pluck it out, and cast it from thee: for it is
profitable for thee that one of thy members should perish, and
not that thy whole body should be cast into
5:30 And if thy right hand offend
thee, cut it off, and cast it from thee: for it is
profitable for thee that one of thy members should perish, and
not that thy whole body should be cast into

shall put away his wife, let him give her a writing of

fornication, causeth her to commit adultery: and whosoever
shall marry her that is divorced committeth

hath been said by them of old time, Thou shalt not forswear
thyself, but shalt perform unto the Lord thine

at all; neither by heaven; for it is God's throne:
5:35 Nor by the earth; for it is
his footstool: neither by Jerusalem; for it is the city of the
5:36 Neither shalt thou swear by
thy head, because thou canst not make one hair white or

be, Yea, yea; Nay, nay: for whatsoever is more than these
cometh of evil.

been said, An eye for an eye, and a tooth for a
5:39 But I say unto you, That ye
resist not evil: but whosoever shall smite thee on thy right
cheek, turn to him the other also.
5:40 And if any man will sue thee
at the law, and take away thy coat, let him have thy

thee to go a mile, go with him twain.
5:42 Give to him that asketh thee,
and from him that would borrow of thee turn not thou
5:43 Ye have heard that it hath
been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbour, and hate thine
5:44 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 despitefully use you, and
5:45 That ye may be the children
of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to
rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just
and on the unjust.
5:46 For if ye love them which
love you, what reward have ye? do not even the publicans the
5:47 And if ye salute your
brethren only, what do ye more than others? do not even
the publicans so?

as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.

that ye do not your alms before men, to be seen of them:
otherwise ye have no reward of your Father which is in
6:2 Therefore when thou doest
thine alms, do not sound a trumpet before thee, as the
hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, that they
may have glory of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their
6:3 But when thou doest alms, let
not thy left hand know what thy right hand doeth:
6:4 That thine alms may be in
secret: and thy Father which seeth in secret himself shall
reward thee openly.
6:5 And when thou prayest, thou
shalt not be as the hypocrites are: for they love to
pray standing in the synagogues and in the corners of the
streets, that they may be seen of men. Verily I say unto you,
They have their reward.
6:6 But thou, when thou prayest,
enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray
to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in
secret shall reward thee openly.
6:7 But when ye pray, use not vain
repetitions, as the heathen do: for they think that they
shall be heard for their much speaking.
6:8 Be not ye therefore like unto
them: for your Father knoweth what things ye have need of,
before ye ask him.
6:9 After this manner therefore
pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy
6:10 Thy kingdom come. Thy will be
done in earth, as it is in heaven.
6:11 Give us this day our daily
6:12 And forgive us our debts, as
we forgive our debtors.
6:13 And lead us not into
temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom,
and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.
6:14 For if ye forgive men their
trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive
6:15 But if ye forgive not men
their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your
6:16 Moreover when ye fast, be
not, as the hypocrites, of a sad countenance: for they
disfigure their faces, that they may appear unto men to fast.
Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.
6:17 But thou, when thou fastest,
anoint thine head, and wash thy face;
6:18 That thou appear not unto men
to fast, but unto thy Father which is in secret: and thy
Father, which seeth in secret, shall reward thee
6:19 Lay not up for yourselves
treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and
where thieves break through and steal:
6:20 But lay up for yourselves
treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt,
and where thieves do not break through nor steal:
6:21 For where your treasure is,
there will your heart be also.
6:22 The light of the body is the
eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be
full of light.
6:23 But if thine eye be evil, thy
whole body shall be full of darkness. If therefore the light
that is in thee be darkness, how great is that
6:24 No man can serve two masters:
for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he
will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve
God and mammon.
6:25 Therefore I say unto you,
Take no thought 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 than meat, and the body than
6:26 Behold the fowls of the air:
for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns;
yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better
6:27 Which of you by taking
thought can add one cubit unto his stature?
6:28 And why take ye thought for
raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they
toil not, neither do they spin:
6:29 And yet I say unto you, That
even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of
6:30 Wherefore, if God so clothe
the grass of the field, which to day is, and to morrow is cast
into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you,
O ye of little faith?
6:31 Therefore take no thought,
saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or,
Wherewithal shall we be clothed?
6:32 (For after all these things
do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye
have need of all these things.
6:33 But seek ye first the kingdom
of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be
added unto you.
6:34 Take therefore no thought for
the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of
itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil
[ Matthew: Chapter
6: | Verses: 34 | Words: 794 ]
that ye be not judged.
7:2 For with what judgment ye
judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it
shall be measured to you again.
7:3 And why beholdest thou the
mote that is in thy brother's eye, but considerest not the beam
that is in thine own eye?
7:4 Or how wilt thou say to thy
brother, Let me pull out the mote out of thine eye; and,
behold, a beam is in thine own eye?
7:5 Thou 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 brother's eye.
7:6 Give not that which is holy
unto the dogs, neither cast ye your pearls before swine, lest
they trample them under their feet, and turn again and rend
7:7 Ask, and it shall be given
you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened
7:8 For every one that asketh
receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that
knocketh it shall be opened.
7:9 Or what man is there of you,
whom if his son ask bread, will he give him a stone?
7:10 Or if he ask a fish, will he
give him a serpent?
7:11 If ye then, being evil, know
how to give good gifts unto your children, how much more shall
your Father which is in heaven give good things to them that
7:12 Therefore all things
whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to
them: for this is the law and the prophets.
7:13 Enter ye in at the strait
gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way,
that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in
7:14 Because strait is the
gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life,
and few there be that find it.
7:15 Beware of false prophets,
which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are
7:16 Ye shall know them by their
fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of

bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth

forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth

forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the

shall know them.
7:21 Not every one that saith unto
me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he
that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.
7:22 Many will say to me in that
day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy
name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful
7:23 And then will I profess unto
them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work
7:24 Therefore whosoever heareth
these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a
wise man, which built his house upon a rock:
7:25 And the rain descended, and
the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house;
and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock.
7:26 And every one that heareth
these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened
unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the

the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house;
and it fell: and great was the fall of it.
7:28 And it came to pass, when Jesus had ended these
sayings, the people were astonished at his doctrine:

and not as the scribes.

mountain, great multitudes followed him.
8:2 And, behold, there came a leper and worshipped him,
saying, Lord, if thou wilt, thou canst make me clean.
8:3 And Jesus put forth his hand, and touched
him, saying, I will; be thou
clean. And immediately his leprosy was cleansed.
8:4 And Jesus saith unto him, See
thou tell no man; but go thy way, shew thyself to the priest,
and offer the gift that Moses commanded, for a testimony unto

came unto him a centurion, beseeching him,
8:6 And saying, Lord, my servant lieth at home sick of
the palsy, grievously tormented.
8:7 And Jesus saith unto him, I
will come and heal him.
8:8 The centurion answered and said, Lord, I am not
worthy that thou shouldest come under my roof: but speak the
word only, and my servant shall be healed.
8:9 For I am a man under authority, having soldiers
under me: and I say to this man, Go, and he goeth; and
to another, Come, and he cometh; and to my servant, Do this,
and he doeth it.
8:10 When Jesus heard it, he marvelled, and said
to them that followed, Verily I say unto
you, I have not found so great faith, no, not in
8:11 And 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
8:12 But the children of the
kingdom shall be cast out into outer darkness: there shall be
weeping and gnashing of teeth.
8:13 And Jesus said unto the centurion, Go thy way; and as thou hast believed, so be
it done unto thee. And his servant was healed in the
8:14 And when Jesus was come into Peter's house, he saw
his wife's mother laid, and sick of a fever.
8:15 And he touched her hand, and the fever left her:

8:16 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:
8:17 That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by
Esaias the prophet, saying, Himself took our infirmities, and
bare our sicknesses.
8:18 Now when Jesus saw great multitudes about him, he
gave commandment to depart unto the other side.
8:19 And a certain scribe came, and said unto him,
Master, I will follow thee whithersoever thou goest.

foxes have holes, and the birds of the air have nests;
but the Son of man hath not where to lay his

suffer me first to go and bury my father.

sea, insomuch that the ship was covered with the waves: but he

him, saying, Lord, save us: we perish.
8:26 And he saith unto them, Why
are ye fearful, O ye of little faith? Then he arose, and
rebuked the winds and the sea; and there was a great
8:27 But the men marvelled, saying, What manner of man
is this, that even the winds and the sea obey him!
8:28 And when he was come to the other side into the
country of the Gergesenes, there met him two possessed with
devils, coming out of the tombs, exceeding fierce, so that no
man might pass by that way.
8:29 And, behold, they cried out, saying, What have we
to do with thee, Jesus, thou Son of God? art thou come hither
to torment us before the time?
8:30 And there was a good way off from them an herd of
many swine feeding.
8:31 So the devils besought him, saying, If thou cast us
out, suffer us to go away into the herd of swine.
8:32 And he said unto them, Go. And when they were come out, they went
into the herd of swine: and, behold, the whole herd of swine
ran violently down a steep place into the sea, and perished in

into the city, and told every thing, and what was befallen to
the possessed of the devils.

and when they saw him, they besought him that he would
depart out of their coasts.

ND he entered into a ship, and
passed over, and came into his own city.
9:2 And, behold, they brought to him a man sick of the
palsy, lying on a bed: and Jesus seeing their faith said unto
the sick of the palsy; Son, be of good
cheer; thy sins be forgiven thee.
9:3 And, behold, certain of the scribes said within
themselves, This man blasphemeth.
9:4 And Jesus knowing their thoughts said, Wherefore think ye evil in your hearts?

Thy sins be forgiven thee; or to say, Arise, and

Son of man hath power on earth to forgive sins, (then
saith he to the sick of the palsy,) Arise, take up thy bed, and go unto thine

marvelled, and glorified God, which had given such power unto

named Matthew, sitting at the receipt of custom: and he saith
unto him, Follow me. And he arose,
and followed him.
9:10 And it came to pass, as Jesus sat at meat in the
house, behold, many publicans and sinners came and sat down
with him and his disciples.
9:11 And when the Pharisees saw it, they said
unto his disciples, Why eateth your Master with publicans and

them, They that be whole need not a
physician, but they that are sick.

that meaneth, I will have mercy, and not sacrifice: for
I am not come to call the righteous, but sinners to

do we and the Pharisees fast oft, but thy disciples fast

the children of the bridechamber 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

cloth unto an old garment, for that which is put in to fill it
up taketh from the garment, and the rent is made
9:17 Neither do men put new wine
into old bottles: else the bottles break, and the wine runneth
out, and the bottles perish: but they put new wine into new
bottles, and both are preserved.
9:18 While he spake these things unto them, behold,
there came a certain ruler, and worshipped him, saying, My
daughter is even now dead: but come and lay thy hand upon her,
and she shall live.
9:19 And Jesus arose, and followed him, and so
did his disciples.
9:20 And, behold, a woman, which was diseased with an
issue of blood twelve years, came behind him, and
touched the hem of his garment:
9:21 For she said within herself, If I may but touch his
garment, I shall be whole.
9:22 But Jesus turned him about, and when he saw her, he
said, Daughter, be of good comfort; thy
faith hath made thee whole. And the woman was made whole
from that hour.
9:23 And when Jesus came into the ruler's house, and saw
the minstrels and the people making a noise,
9:24 He said unto them, Give
place: for the maid is not dead, but sleepeth. And they
laughed him to scorn.
9:25 But when the people were put forth, he went in, and
took her by the hand, and the maid arose.
9:26 And the fame hereof went abroad into all that

followed him, crying, and saying, Thou son of David,
have mercy on us.
9:28 And when he was come into the house, the blind men
came to him: and Jesus saith unto them, Believe ye that I am able to do this? They
said unto him, Yea, Lord.
9:29 Then touched he their eyes, saying, According to your faith be it unto you.
9:30 And their eyes were opened; and Jesus straitly
charged them, saying, See that no
man know it.
9:31 But they, when they were departed, spread abroad
his fame in all that country.
9:32 As they went out, behold, they brought to him a
dumb man possessed with a devil.
9:33 And when the devil was cast out, the dumb spake:
and the multitudes marvelled, saying, It was never so seen in

teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the
kingdom, and healing every sickness and every disease among the

compassion on them, because they fainted, and were scattered
abroad, as sheep having no shepherd.

labourers are few;

him his twelve disciples, he gave them power
against unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to heal
all manner of sickness and all manner of disease.
10:2 Now the names of the twelve apostles are these; The
first, Simon, who is called Peter, and Andrew his brother;
James the son of Zebedee, and John his brother;

publican; James the son of Alphaeus, and Lebbaeus, whose
surname was Thaddaeus;

saying, Go not into the way of the
Gentiles, and into any city of the Samaritans enter ye

sheep of the house of Israel.

The kingdom of heaven is at hand.

lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils: freely ye have
received, freely give.

silver, nor brass in your purses,

journey, neither two coats, neither shoes, nor yet staves: for
the workman is worthy of his meat.

town ye shall enter, enquire who in it is worthy; and there
abide till ye go thence.

house, salute it.

let your peace come upon it: but if it be not worthy, let your
peace return to you.

receive you, nor hear your words, when ye depart out of that
house or city, shake off the dust of your feet.
10:15 Verily I say unto you, It
shall be more tolerable for the land of Sodom and Gomorrha in
the day of judgment, than for that city.
10:16 Behold, I send you forth as
sheep in the midst of wolves: be ye therefore wise as serpents,
and harmless as doves.

will deliver you up to the councils, and they will scourge you
in their synagogues;

before governors and kings for my sake, for a testimony against
them and the Gentiles.
10:19 But when they deliver you
up, take no thought how or what ye shall speak: for it shall be
given you in that same hour what ye shall speak.

but the Spirit of your Father which speaketh in you.

deliver up the brother to death, and the father the child: and
the children shall rise up against their parents, and
cause them to be put to death.

men for my name's sake: but he that endureth to the end
shall be saved.

in this city, flee ye into another: for verily I say unto you,
Ye shall not have gone over the cities of Israel, till the Son
of man be come.

more shall they call them of his household?

ND it came to pass, when Jesus
had made an end of commanding his twelve disciples, he departed
thence to teach and to preach in their cities.
11:2 Now when John had heard in the prison the works of
Christ, he sent two of his disciples,
11:3 And said unto him, Art thou he that should come, or
do we look for another?
11:4 Jesus answered and said unto them, Go and shew John again those things which ye do hear
11:5 The blind receive their
sight, and the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed, and the deaf
hear, the dead are raised up, and the poor have the gospel
preached to them.
11:6 And blessed is he,
whosoever shall not be offended in me.
11:7 And as they departed, Jesus began to say unto the
multitudes concerning John, What went ye out into the
wilderness to see? A reed shaken with the wind?
11:8 But what went ye out for to
see? A man clothed in soft raiment? behold, they that wear soft
clothing are in kings' houses.
11:9 But what went ye out for to
see? A prophet? yea, I say unto you, and more than a
11:10 For this is he, of
whom it is written, Behold, I send my messenger before thy
face, which shall prepare thy way before thee.
11:11 Verily I say unto you, Among
them that are born of women there hath not risen a greater than
John the Baptist: notwithstanding he that is least in the
kingdom of heaven is greater than he.
11:12 And from the days of John
the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffereth violence,
and the violent take it by force.
11:13 For all the prophets and the
law prophesied until John.
11:14 And if ye will receive
it, this is Elias, which was for to come.
11:15 He that hath ears to hear,
let him hear.
11:16 But whereunto shall I liken
this generation? It is like unto children sitting in the
markets, and calling unto their fellows,
11:17 And saying, We have piped
unto you, and ye have not danced; we have mourned unto you, and
ye have not lamented.
11:18 For John came neither eating
nor drinking, and they say, He hath a devil.
11:19 The Son of man came eating
and drinking, and they say, Behold a man gluttonous, and a
winebibber, a friend of publicans and sinners. But wisdom is
justified of her children.
11:20 Then began he to upbraid the cities wherein most
of his mighty works were done, because they repented not:
11:21 Woe unto thee, Chorazin! woe
unto thee, Bethsaida! for if the mighty works, which were done
in you, had been done in Tyre and Sidon, they would have
repented long ago in sackcloth and ashes.
11:22 But I say unto you, It shall
be more tolerable for Tyre and Sidon at the day of judgment,
than for you.
11:23 And thou, Capernaum, which
art exalted unto heaven, shalt be brought down to hell: for if
the mighty works, which have been done in thee, had been done
in Sodom, it would have remained until this day.
11:24 But I say unto you, That it
shall be more tolerable for the land of Sodom in the day of
judgment, than for thee.
11:25 At that time Jesus answered and said, I thank thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth,
because thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent,
and hast revealed them unto babes.
11:26 Even so, Father: for so it
seemed good in thy sight.
11:27 All things are delivered
unto me of my Father: and no man knoweth the Son, but the
Father; neither knoweth any man the Father, save the Son, and
he to whomsoever the Son will reveal
11:28 Come unto me, all ye
that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you

learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall
find rest unto your souls.

and my burden is light.

T that time Jesus went on the
sabbath day through the corn; and his disciples were an
hungred, and began to pluck the ears of corn, and to eat.
12:2 But when the Pharisees saw it, they said
unto him, Behold, thy disciples do that which is not lawful to
do upon the sabbath day.
12:3 But he said unto them, Have
ye not read what David did, when he was an hungred, and they
that were with him;
12:4 How he entered into the house
of God, and did eat the shewbread, which was not lawful for him
to eat, neither for them which were with him, but only for the
12:5 Or have ye not read in the
law, how that on the sabbath days the priests in the temple
profane the sabbath, and are blameless?

this place is one greater than the temple.
12:7 But if ye had known what
this meaneth, I will have mercy, and not sacrifice, ye
would not have condemned the guiltless.

even of the sabbath day.
12:9 And when he was departed thence, he went into their

hand withered. And they asked him, saying, Is it lawful to heal
on the sabbath days? that they might accuse him.
12:11 And he said unto them, What
man shall there be among you, that shall have one sheep, and if
it fall into a pit on the sabbath day, will he not lay hold on
it, and lift it out?
12:12 How much then is a man
better than a sheep? Wherefore it is lawful to do well on the
12:13 Then saith he to the man, Stretch forth thine hand. And he stretched
it forth; and it was restored whole, like as the
12:14 Then the Pharisees went out, and held a council
against him, how they might destroy him.
12:15 But when Jesus knew it, he withdrew himself
from thence: and great multitudes followed him, and he healed
12:16 And charged them that they should not make him
12:17 That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by
Esaias the prophet, saying,
12:18 Behold my servant, whom I have chosen; my beloved,
in whom my soul is well pleased: I will put my spirit upon him,
and he shall shew judgment to the Gentiles.
12:19 He shall not strive, nor cry; neither shall any
man hear his voice in the streets.
12:20 A bruised reed shall he not break, and smoking
flax shall he not quench, till he send forth judgment unto
12:21 And in his name shall the Gentiles trust.
12:22 Then was brought unto him one possessed with a
devil, blind, and dumb: and he healed him, insomuch that the
blind and dumb both spake and saw.
12:23 And all the people were amazed, and said, Is not
this the son of David?
12:24 But when the Pharisees heard it, they said,
This fellow doth not cast out devils, but by Beelzebub
the prince of the devils.
12:25 And Jesus knew their thoughts, and said unto them,
Every kingdom divided against itself is
brought to desolation; and every city or house divided against
itself shall not stand:
12:26 And if Satan cast out Satan,
he is divided against himself; how shall then his kingdom
12:27 And if I by Beelzebub cast
out devils, by whom do your children cast them out?
therefore they shall be your judges.
12:28 But if I cast out devils by
the Spirit of God, then the kingdom of God is come unto

into a strong man's house, and spoil his goods, except he first
bind the strong man? and then he will spoil his

against me; and he that gathereth not with me scattereth

All manner of sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven unto men: but
the blasphemy against the Holy Ghost shall not be
forgiven unto men.
12:32 And whosoever speaketh a
word against the Son of man, it shall be forgiven him: but
whosoever speaketh against the Holy Ghost, it shall not be
forgiven him, neither in this world, neither in the
world to come.

and his fruit good; or else make the tree corrupt, and his
fruit corrupt: for the tree is known by his

can ye, being evil, speak good things? for out of the abundance
of the heart the mouth speaketh.
12:35 A good man out of the good
treasure of the heart bringeth forth good things: and an evil
man out of the evil treasure bringeth forth evil

every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account
thereof in the day of judgment.

be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be

answered, saying, Master, we would see a sign from thee.
12:39 But he answered and said unto them, An evil and adulterous generation seeketh after a
sign; and there shall no sign be given to it, but the sign of
the prophet Jonas:
12:40 For as Jonas was three days
and three nights in the whale's belly; so shall the Son of man
be three days and three nights in the heart of the

rise in judgment with this generation, and shall condemn it:
because they repented at the preaching of Jonas; and, behold, a
greater than Jonas is here.
12:42 The queen of the south shall
rise up in the judgment with this generation, and shall condemn
it: for she came from the uttermost parts of the earth to hear
the wisdom of Solomon; and, behold, a greater than Solomon

gone out of a man, he walketh through dry places, seeking rest,
and findeth none.
12:44 Then he saith, I will return
into my house from whence I came out; and when he is come, he
findeth it empty, swept, and garnished.
12:45 Then goeth he, and taketh
with himself seven other spirits more wicked than himself, and
they enter in and dwell there: and the last state of
that man is worse than the first. Even so shall it be also unto
this wicked generation.
12:46 While he yet talked to the people, behold,
his mother and his brethren stood without, desiring to
speak with him.
12:47 Then one said unto him, Behold, thy mother and thy
brethren stand without, desiring to speak with thee.
12:48 But he answered and said unto him that told him,
Who is my mother? and who are my

disciples, and said, Behold my mother and

HE same day went Jesus out of the
house, and sat by the sea side.
13:2 And great multitudes were gathered together unto
him, so that he went into a ship, and sat; and the whole
multitude stood on the shore.
13:3 And he spake many things unto them in parables,
saying, Behold, a sower went forth to
13:4 And when he sowed, some seeds fell by the
way side, and the fowls came and devoured them up:
13:5 Some fell upon stony places,
where they had not much earth: and forthwith they sprung up,
because they had no deepness of earth:
13:6 And when the sun was up, they
were scorched; and because they had no root, they withered
13:7 And some fell among thorns;
and the thorns sprung up, and choked them:
13:8 But other fell into good
ground, and brought forth fruit, some an hundredfold, some
sixtyfold, some thirtyfold.
13:9 Who hath ears to hear, let
13:10 And the disciples came, and said unto him, Why
speakest thou unto them in parables?
13:11 He answered and said unto them, Because it is given unto you to know the mysteries of
the kingdom of heaven, but to them it is not given.
13:12 For whosoever hath, to him
shall be given, and he shall have more abundance: but whosoever
hath not, from him shall be taken away even that he
13:13 Therefore speak I to them in
parables: because they seeing see not; and hearing they hear
not, neither do they understand.
13:14 And in them is fulfilled the
prophecy of Esaias, which saith, By hearing ye shall hear, and
shall not understand; and seeing ye shall see, and shall not
13:15 For this people's heart is
waxed gross, and their ears are dull of hearing, and
their eyes they have closed; lest at any time they should see
with their eyes and hear with their ears, and
should understand with their heart, and should be
converted, and I should heal them.
13:16 But blessed are your
eyes, for they see: and your ears, for they hear.
13:17 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.
13:18 Hear ye therefore the
parable of the sower.
13:19 When any one heareth the
word of the kingdom, and understandeth it not, then
cometh the wicked one, and catcheth away that which was
sown in his heart. This is he which received seed by the way
13:20 But he that received the
seed into stony places, the same is he that heareth the word,
and anon with joy receiveth it;
13:21 Yet hath he not root in
himself, but dureth for a while: for when tribulation or
persecution ariseth because of the word, by and by he is
13:22 He also that received seed
among the thorns is he that heareth the word; and the care of
this world, and the deceitfulness of riches, choke the word,
and he becometh unfruitful.
13:23 But he that received seed
into the good ground is he that heareth the word, and
understandeth it; which also beareth fruit, and bringeth
forth, some an hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty.
13:24 Another parable put he forth unto them, saying,
The kingdom of heaven is likened unto a
man which sowed good seed in his field:
13:25 But while men slept, his
enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat, and went his
13:26 But when the blade was
sprung up, and brought forth fruit, then appeared the tares
13:27 So the servants of the
householder came and said unto him, Sir, didst not thou sow
good seed in thy field? from whence then hath it
13:28 He said unto them, An enemy
hath done this. The servants said unto him, Wilt thou then that
we go and gather them up?
13:29 But he said, Nay; lest while
ye gather up the tares, ye root up also the wheat with
13:30 Let both grow together until
the harvest: and in the time of harvest I will say to the
reapers, Gather ye together first the tares, and bind them in
bundles to burn them: but gather the wheat into my
13:31 Another parable put he forth unto them, saying,
The kingdom of heaven is like to a grain
of mustard seed, which a man took, and sowed in his
13:32 Which indeed is the least of
all seeds: but when it is grown, it is the greatest among
herbs, and becometh a tree, so that the birds of the air come
and lodge in the branches thereof.
13:33 Another parable spake he unto them; The kingdom of heaven is like unto leaven, which a
woman took, and hid in three measures of meal, till the whole
13:34 All these things spake Jesus unto the multitude in
parables; and without a parable spake he not unto them:
13:35 That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the
prophet, saying, I will open my mouth in parables; I will utter
things which have been kept secret from the foundation of the
13:36 Then Jesus sent 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.
13:37 He answered and said unto them, He that soweth the good seed is the Son of
13:38 The field is the world; the
good seed are the children of the kingdom; but the tares are
the children of the wicked one;
13:39 The enemy that sowed them is
the devil; the harvest is the end of the world; and the reapers
are the angels.
13:40 As therefore the tares are
gathered and burned in the fire; so shall it be in the end of
13:41 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;
13:42 And shall cast them into a
furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of
13:43 Then shall the righteous
shine forth as the sun in the kingdom of their Father. Who hath
ears to hear, let him hear.
13:44 Again, the kingdom of heaven
is like unto treasure hid in a field; the which when a man hath
found, he hideth, and for joy thereof goeth and selleth all
that he hath, and buyeth that field.
13:45 Again, the kingdom of heaven
is like unto a merchant man, seeking goodly pearls:
13:46 Who, when he had found one
pearl of great price, went and sold all that he had, and bought
13:47 Again, the kingdom of heaven
is like unto a net, that was cast into the sea, and gathered of
13:48 Which, when it was full,
they drew to shore, and sat down, and gathered the good into
vessels, but cast the bad away.
13:49 So shall it be at the end of
the world: the angels shall come forth, and sever the wicked
from among the just,
13:50 And shall cast them into the
furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of
13:51 Jesus saith unto them, Have
ye understood all these things? They say unto him, Yea,
13:52 Then said he unto them, Therefore every scribe which is instructed
unto the kingdom of heaven is like unto a man that is an
householder, which bringeth forth out of his treasure
things new and old.
13:53 And it came to pass, that when Jesus had
finished these parables, he departed thence.
13:54 And when he was come into his own country, he
taught them in their synagogue, insomuch that they were
astonished, and said, Whence hath this man this wisdom,
and these mighty works?
13:55 Is not this the carpenter's son? is not his mother
called Mary? and his brethren, James, and Joses, and Simon, and
13:56 And his sisters, are they not all with us? Whence
then hath this man all these things?
13:57 And they were offended in him. But Jesus said unto
them, A prophet is not without honour,
save in his own country, and in his own house.
13:58 And he did not many mighty works there because of

13: | Verses: 58 | Words: 1367 ]
T that time Herod the tetrarch
heard of the fame of Jesus,
14:2 And said unto his servants, This is John the
Baptist; he is risen from the dead; and therefore mighty works
do shew forth themselves in him.
14:3 For Herod had laid hold on John, and bound him, and
put him in prison for Herodias' sake, his brother
14:4 For John said unto him, It is not lawful for thee
to have her.
14:5 And when he would have put him to death, he feared
the multitude, because they counted him as a prophet.
14:6 But when Herod's birthday was kept, the daughter of
Herodias danced before them, and pleased Herod.
14:7 Whereupon he promised with an oath to give her
whatsoever she would ask.
14:8 And she, being before instructed of her mother,
said, Give me here John Baptist's head in a charger.
14:9 And the king was sorry: nevertheless for the oath's
sake, and them which sat with him at meat, he commanded
it to be given her.
14:10 And he sent, and beheaded John in the prison.
14:11 And his head was brought in a charger, and given
to the damsel: and she brought it to her mother.
14:12 And his disciples came, and took up the body, and
buried it, and went and told Jesus.
14:13 When Jesus heard of it, he departed thence
by ship into a desert place apart: and when the people had
heard thereof, they followed him on foot out of the
14:14 And Jesus went forth, and saw a great multitude,
and was moved with compassion toward them, and he healed their
14:15 And when it was evening, his disciples came to
him, saying, This is a desert place, and the time is now past;
send the multitude away, that they may go into the villages,
and buy themselves victuals.
14:16 But Jesus said unto them, They need not depart; give ye them to eat.
14:17 And they say unto him, We have here but five
loaves, and two fishes.
14:18 He said, Bring them hither
14:19 And he commanded the multitude to sit down on the
grass, and took the five loaves, and the two fishes, and
looking up to heaven, he blessed, and brake, and gave the
loaves to his disciples, and the disciples to the
14:20 And they did all eat, and were filled: and they
took up of the fragments that remained twelve baskets full.
14:21 And they that had eaten were about five thousand
men, beside women and children.
14:22 And straightway Jesus constrained his disciples to
get into a ship, and to go before him unto the other side,
while he sent the multitudes away.
14:23 And when he had sent the multitudes away, he went
up into a mountain apart to pray: and when the evening was
come, he was there alone.
14:24 But the ship was now in the midst of the sea,
tossed with waves: for the wind was contrary.
14:25 And in the fourth watch of the night Jesus went
unto them, walking on the sea.
14:26 And when the disciples saw him walking on the sea,
they were troubled, saying, It is a spirit; and they cried out
14:27 But straightway Jesus spake unto them, saying,
Be of good cheer; it is I; be not
14:28 And Peter answered him and said, Lord, if it be
thou, bid me come unto thee on the water.
14:29 And he said, Come.
And when Peter was come down out of the ship, he walked on the
water, to go to Jesus.
14:30 But when he saw the wind boisterous, he was
afraid; and beginning to sink, he cried, saying, Lord, save
14:31 And immediately Jesus stretched forth his
hand, and caught him, and said unto him, O thou of little faith, wherefore didst thou
14:32 And when they were come into the ship, the wind
14:33 Then they that were in the ship came and
worshipped him, saying, Of a truth thou art the Son of God.
14:34 And when they were gone over, they came into the
land of Gennesaret.
14:35 And when the men of that place had knowledge of
him, they sent out into all that country round about, and
brought unto him all that were diseased;
14:36 And besought him that they might only touch the
hem of his garment: and as many as touched were made perfectly

HEN came to Jesus scribes and
Pharisees, which were of Jerusalem, saying,
15:2 Why do thy disciples transgress the tradition of
the elders? for they wash not their hands when they eat
15:3 But he answered and said unto them, Why do ye also transgress the commandment of God by
15:4 For God commanded, saying,
Honour thy father and mother: and, He that curseth father or
mother, let him die the death.
15:5 But ye say, Whosoever shall
say to his father or his mother, It is a
gift, by whatsoever thou mightest be profited by me;
15:6 And honour not his father or
his mother, he shall be free. Thus have ye made the
commandment of God of none effect by your tradition.
15:7 Ye hypocrites, well
did Esaias prophesy of you, saying,
15:8 This people draweth nigh unto
me with their mouth, and honoureth me with their lips;
but their heart is far from me.
15:9 But in vain they do worship
me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of
15:10 And he called the multitude, and said unto them,
Hear, and understand:
15:11 Not that which goeth into
the mouth defileth a man; but that which cometh out of the
mouth, this defileth a man.
15:12 Then came his disciples, and said unto him,
Knowest thou that the Pharisees were offended, after they heard
15:13 But he answered and said, Every plant, which my heavenly Father hath not
planted, shall be rooted up.
15:14 Let them alone: they be
blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind lead the blind,
both shall fall into the ditch.
15:15 Then answered Peter and said unto him, Declare
unto us this parable.
15:16 And Jesus said, Are ye also
yet without understanding?
15:17 Do not ye yet understand,
that whatsoever entereth in at the mouth goeth into the belly,
and is cast out into the draught?
15:18 But those things which
proceed out of the mouth come forth from the heart; and they
defile the man.
15:19 For out of the heart proceed
evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false
15:20 These are the things
which defile a man: but to eat with unwashen hands defileth not
15:21 Then Jesus went thence, and departed into the
coasts of Tyre and Sidon.
15:22 And, behold, a woman of Canaan came out of the
same coasts, and cried unto him, saying, Have mercy on me, O
Lord, thou son of David; my daughter is grievously vexed
with a devil.
15:23 But he answered her not a word. And his disciples
came and besought him, saying, Send her away; for she crieth
15:24 But he answered and said, I
am not sent but unto the lost sheep of the house of
15:25 Then came she and worshipped him, saying, Lord,
15:26 But he answered and said, It
is not meet to take the children's bread, and cast it to
15:27 And she said, Truth, Lord: yet the dogs eat of the
crumbs which fall from their masters' table.
15:28 Then Jesus answered and said unto her,
O woman, great is thy faith: be it
unto thee even as thou wilt. And her daughter was made whole
from that very hour.
15:29 And Jesus departed from thence, and came nigh unto
the sea of Galilee; and went up into a mountain, and sat down
15:30 And great multitudes came unto him, having with
them those that were lame, blind, dumb, maimed, and many
others, and cast them down at Jesus' feet; and he healed
15:31 Insomuch that the multitude wondered, when they
saw the dumb to speak, the maimed to be whole, the lame to
walk, and the blind to see: and they glorified the God of
15:32 Then Jesus called his disciples unto him,
and said, I have compassion on the
multitude, because they continue with me now three days, and
have nothing to eat: and I will not send them away fasting,
lest they faint in the way.
15:33 And his disciples say unto him, Whence should we
have so much bread in the wilderness, as to fill so great a
15:34 And Jesus saith unto them, How many loaves have ye? And they said, Seven,
and a few little fishes.
15:35 And he commanded the multitude to sit down on the
15:36 And he took the seven loaves and the fishes, and
gave thanks, and brake them, and gave to his disciples,
and the disciples to the multitude.
15:37 And they did all eat, and were filled: and they
took up of the broken meat that was left seven baskets
15:38 And they that did eat were four thousand men,
beside women and children.
15:39 And he sent away the multitude, and took ship, and
came into the coasts of Magdala.

HE Pharisees also with the
Sadducees came, and tempting desired him that he would shew
them a sign from heaven.
16:2 He answered and said unto them, When it is evening, ye say, It will be fair
weather: for the sky is red.
16:3 And in the morning, It
will be foul weather to day: for the sky is red and
lowring. O ye hypocrites, ye can discern the face of the
sky; but can ye not discern the signs of the
16:4 A wicked and adulterous
generation seeketh after a sign; and there shall no sign be
given unto it, but the sign of the prophet Jonas. And he left
them, and departed.
16:5 And when his disciples were come to the other side,
they had forgotten to take bread.
16:6 Then Jesus said unto them, Take heed and beware of the leaven of the Pharisees
and of the Sadducees.
16:7 And they reasoned among themselves, saying, It
is because we have taken no bread.
16:8 Which when Jesus perceived, he said unto
them, O ye of little faith, why reason ye
among yourselves, because ye have brought no bread?
16:9 Do ye not yet understand,
neither remember the five loaves of the five thousand, and how
many baskets ye took up?
16:10 Neither the seven loaves of
the four thousand, and how many baskets ye took up?
16:11 How is it that ye do not
understand that I spake it not to you concerning bread,
that ye should beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and of the
16:12 Then understood they how that he bade them
not beware of the leaven of bread, but of the doctrine of the
Pharisees and of the Sadducees.
16:13 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?
16:14 And they said, Some say that thou art John
the Baptist: some, Elias; and others, Jeremias, or one of the
16:15 He saith unto them, But whom
say ye that I am?
16:16 And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the
Christ, the Son of the living God.
16:17 And Jesus answered and said unto him, Blessed art thou, Simon Bar-jona: for flesh and blood
hath not revealed it unto thee, but my Father which is
16:18 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 prevail against it.
16:19 And I will give unto thee
the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt
bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou
shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.
16:20 Then charged he his disciples that they should
tell no man that he was Jesus the Christ.
16:21 From that time forth began Jesus to shew unto his
disciples, how that he must go unto Jerusalem, and suffer many
things of the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be
killed, and be raised again the third day.
16:22 Then Peter took him, and began to rebuke him,
saying, Be it far from thee, Lord: this shall not be unto
16:23 But he turned, and said unto Peter, Get thee behind me, Satan: thou art an offence unto
me: for thou savourest not the things that be of God, but those
that be of men.
16:24 Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny
himself, and take up his cross, and follow me.
16:25 For whosoever will save his
life shall lose it: and whosoever will lose his life for my
sake shall find it.
16:26 For what is a man profited,
if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? or
what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?
16:27 For the Son of man shall
come in the glory of his Father with his angels; and then he
shall reward every man according to his works.
16:28 Verily I say unto you, There
be some standing here, which shall not taste of death, till
they see the Son of man coming in his kingdom.

ND after six days Jesus taketh
Peter, James, and John his brother, and bringeth them up into
an high mountain apart,
17:2 And was transfigured before them: and his face did
shine as the sun, and his raiment was white as the light.
17:3 And, behold, there appeared unto them Moses and
Elias talking with him.
17:4 Then answered Peter, and said unto Jesus, Lord, 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

overshadowed them: and behold a voice out of the cloud, which
said, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased; hear
17:6 And when the disciples heard it, they fell
on their face, and were sore afraid.
17:7 And Jesus came and touched them, and said,
Arise, and be not afraid.
17:8 And when they had lifted up their eyes, they saw no
man, save Jesus only.
17:9 And as they came down from the mountain, Jesus
charged them, saying, Tell the vision to
no man, until the Son of man be risen again from the
17:10 And his disciples asked him, saying, Why then say
the scribes that Elias must first come?
17:11 And Jesus answered and said unto them,
Elias truly shall first come, and restore
17:12 But I say unto you, That
Elias is come already, and they knew him not, but have done
unto him whatsoever they listed. Likewise shall also the Son of
man suffer of them.
17:13 Then the disciples understood that he spake unto
them of John the Baptist.
17:14 And when they were come to the multitude, there
came to him a certain man, kneeling down to him, and
17:15 Lord, have mercy on my son: for he is a lunatick,
and sore vexed: for ofttimes he falleth into the fire, and oft
into the water.
17:16 And I brought him to thy disciples, and they could
not cure him.
17:17 Then Jesus answered and said, O faithless and perverse generation, how long shall I
be with you? how long shall I suffer you? bring him hither to
17:18 And Jesus rebuked the devil; and he departed out
of him: and the child was cured from that very hour.
17:19 Then came the disciples to Jesus apart, and said,
Why could not we cast him out?
17:20 And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you,
If ye have faith as 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.
17:21 Howbeit this kind goeth not
out but by prayer and fasting.
17:22 And while they abode in Galilee, Jesus said unto
them, The Son of man shall be betrayed
into the hands of men:
17:23 And they shall kill him, and
the third day he shall be raised again. And they were exceeding
17:24 And when they were come to Capernaum, they that
received tribute money came to Peter, and said, Doth not
your master pay tribute?
17:25 He saith, 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
custom or tribute? of their own children, or of
17:26 Peter saith unto him, Of strangers. Jesus saith
unto him, Then are the children
17:27 Notwithstanding, lest we
should offend them, go thou to the sea, and cast an hook, and
take up the fish that first cometh up; and when thou hast
opened his mouth, thou shalt find a piece of money: that take,

17: | Verses: 27 | Words: 621 ]
T the same time came the
disciples unto Jesus, saying, Who is the greatest in the
kingdom of heaven?
18:2 And Jesus called a little child unto him, and set
him in the midst of them,
18:3 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.
18:4 Whosoever therefore shall
humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in
the kingdom of heaven.
18:5 And whoso shall receive one
such little child in my name receiveth me.
18:6 But whoso 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.
18:7 Woe unto the world because of
offences! for it must needs be that offences come; but woe to
that man by whom the offence cometh!
18:8 Wherefore if thy hand or thy
foot offend thee, cut them off, and cast them from thee:
it is better for thee to enter into life halt or maimed, rather
than having two hands or two feet to be cast into everlasting
18:9 And if thine eye offend thee,
pluck it out, and cast it from thee: it is better for
thee to enter into life with one eye, rather than having two
eyes to be cast into hell fire.
18:10 Take heed that ye despise
not one of these little ones; for I say unto you, That in
heaven their angels do always behold the face of my Father
which is in heaven.
18:11 For the Son of man is come
to save that which was lost.
18:12 How think ye? if a man have
an hundred sheep, and one of them be gone astray, doth he not
leave the ninety and nine, and goeth into the mountains, and
seeketh that which is gone astray?
18:13 And if so be that he find
it, verily I say unto you, he rejoiceth more of that
sheep, than of the ninety and nine which went not
18:14 Even so it is not the will
of your Father which is in heaven, that one of these little
ones should perish.
18:15 Moreover if thy brother
shall trespass against thee, go and tell him his fault between
thee and him alone: if he shall hear thee, thou hast gained thy
18:16 But if he will not hear
thee, then take with thee one or two more, that in the
mouth of two or three witnesses every word may be

hear them, tell it unto the church: but if he neglect to
hear the church, let him be unto thee as a heathen man and a

Whatsoever ye shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and
whatsoever ye shall loose on earth shall be loosed in

if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that
they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is

gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of

shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? till seven

not unto thee, Until seven times: but, Until seventy times

heaven likened unto a certain king, which would take account of

reckon, one was brought unto him, which owed him ten thousand

to pay, his lord commanded him to be sold, and his wife, and
children, and all that he had, and payment to be
18:26 The servant therefore fell
down, and worshipped him, saying, Lord, have patience with me,
and I will pay thee all.
18:27 Then the lord of that
servant was moved with compassion, and loosed him, and forgave
him the debt.
18:28 But the same servant went
out, and found one of his fellow servants, which owed him an
hundred pence: and he laid hands on him, and took him by
the throat, saying, Pay me that thou owest.
18:29 And his fellow servant fell
down at his feet, and besought him, saying, Have patience with
me, and I will pay thee all.
18:30 And he would not: but went
and cast him into prison, till he should pay the
18:31 So when his fellowservants
saw what was done, they were very sorry, and came and told unto
their lord all that was done.
18:32 Then his lord, after that he
had called him, said unto him, O thou wicked servant, I forgave
thee all that debt, because thou desiredst me:
18:33 Shouldest not thou also have
had compassion on thy fellowservant, even as I had pity on
18:34 And his lord was wroth, and
delivered him to the tormentors, till he should pay all that
was due unto him.
18:35 So likewise shall my
heavenly Father do also unto you, if ye from your hearts
forgive not every one his brother their trespasses.

ND it came to pass, that
when Jesus had finished these sayings, he departed from
Galilee, and came into the coasts of Judaea beyond Jordan;
19:2 And great multitudes followed him; and he healed
19:3 The Pharisees also came unto him, tempting him, and
saying unto him, Is it lawful for a man to put away his wife
for every cause?
19:4 And he answered and said unto them, Have ye not read, that he which made them at
the beginning made them male and female,
19:5 And said, For this cause
shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his
wife: and they twain shall be one flesh?
19:6 Wherefore they are no more
twain, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together,
let not man put asunder.
19:7 They say unto him, Why did Moses then command to
give a writing of divorcement, and to put her away?
19:8 He saith unto them, Moses
because of the hardness of your hearts suffered you to put away
your wives: but from the beginning it was not so.
19:9 And I say unto you, Whosoever
shall put away his wife, except it be for fornication,
and shall marry another, committeth adultery: and whoso
marrieth her which is put away doth commit adultery.
19:10 His disciples say unto him, If the case of the man
be so with his wife, it is not good to marry.
19:11 But he said unto them, All
men cannot receive this saying, save they to whom
it is given.
19:12 For there are some eunuchs,
which were so born from their mother's womb: and there
are some eunuchs, which were made eunuchs of men: and there be
eunuchs, which have made themselves eunuchs for the kingdom of
heaven's sake. He that is able to receive it, let him
19:13 Then were there brought unto him little children,
that he should put his hands on them, and pray: and the
disciples rebuked them.
19:14 But Jesus said, Suffer
little children, and forbid them not, to come unto me: for of
such is the kingdom of heaven.
19:15 And he laid his hands on them, and departed
19:16 And, behold, one came and said unto him, Good
Master, what good thing shall I do, that I may have eternal
19:17 And he said unto him, Why
callest thou me good? there is none good but one,
that is, God: but if thou wilt enter into life, keep the
19:18 He saith unto him, Which? Jesus said, Thou shalt do no murder, Thou shalt not commit
adultery, Thou shalt not steal, Thou shalt not bear false
19:19 Honour thy father and
thy mother: and, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as
19:20 The young man saith unto him, All these things
have I kept from my youth up: what lack I yet?
19:21 Jesus said unto him, If thou
wilt be perfect, go and sell that thou hast, and give to
the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come
and follow me.
19:22 But when the young man heard that saying, he went
away sorrowful: for he had great possessions.
19:23 Then said Jesus unto his disciples, Verily I say unto you, That a rich man shall hardly
enter into the kingdom of heaven.
19:24 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 God.
19:25 When his disciples heard it, they were
exceedingly amazed, saying, Who then can be saved?
19:26 But Jesus beheld them, and said unto them,
With men this is impossible; but with God
all things are possible.

kingdom of heaven is like unto a man that is an
householder, which went out early in the morning to hire
labourers into his vineyard.

the labourers for a penny a day, he sent them into his

third hour, and saw others standing idle in the

also into the vineyard, and whatsoever is right I will give
you. And they went their way.
20:5 Again he went out about the
sixth and ninth hour, and did likewise.
20:6 And about the eleventh hour
he went out, and found others standing idle, and saith unto
them, Why stand ye here all the day idle?
20:7 They say unto him, Because no
man hath hired us. He saith unto them, Go ye also into the
vineyard; and whatsoever is right, that shall ye
20:8 So when even was come, the
lord of the vineyard saith unto his steward, Call the
labourers, and give them their hire, beginning from the
last unto the first.
20:9 And when they came that
were hired about the eleventh hour, they received every
man a penny.
20:10 But when the first came,
they supposed that they should have received more; and they
likewise received every man a penny.
20:11 And when they had received
it, they murmured against the goodman of the
20:12 Saying, These last have
wrought but one hour, and thou hast made them equal unto
us, which have borne the burden and heat of the day.
20:13 But he answered one of them,
and said, Friend, I do thee no wrong: didst not thou agree with
me for a penny?
20:14 Take that thine
is, and go thy way: I will give unto this last, even as
20:15 Is it not lawful for me to
do what I will with mine own? Is thine eye evil, because I am

disciples apart in the way, and said unto them,

priests and unto the scribes, and they shall condemn him to

Gentiles to mock, and to scourge, and to crucify him:

with her sons, worshipping him, and desiring a certain
thing of him.
20:21 And he said unto her, What
wilt thou? She saith unto him, Grant that these my two
sons may sit, the one on thy right hand, and the other on the
left, in thy kingdom.
20:22 But 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 am baptized with? They say unto him, We are

shall drink indeed of my cup, and be baptized with the baptism
that I am baptized with: but to sit on my right hand, and on my
left, is not mine to give, but it shall be given to them
for whom it is prepared of my Father.
20:24 And when the ten heard it, they were moved
with indignation against the two brethren.
20:25 But Jesus called them unto him, and said,
Ye know that the princes of the Gentiles
exercise dominion over them, and they that are great exercise
authority upon them.
20:26 But it shall not be so among
you: but whosoever will be great among you, let him be your
20:27 And whosoever will be chief
among you, let him be your servant:
20:28 Even as the Son of man came
not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give his
life a ransom for many.
20:29 And as they departed from Jericho, a great
multitude followed him.
20:30 And, behold, two blind men sitting by the way
side, when they heard that Jesus passed by, cried out, saying,
Have mercy on us, O Lord, thou son of David.
20:31 And the multitude rebuked them, because they
should hold their peace: but they cried the more, saying, Have
mercy on us, O Lord, thou son of David.

What will ye that I shall do unto

Jerusalem, and were come to Bethphage, unto the mount of
Olives, then sent Jesus two disciples,

village over against you, and straightway ye shall find an ass
tied, and a colt with her: loose them, and bring
them unto me.
21:3 And if any man say
aught unto you, ye shall say, The Lord hath need of them; and
straightway he will send them.
21:4 All this was done, that it might be fulfilled which
was spoken by the prophet, saying,
21:5 Tell ye the daughter of Sion, Behold, thy King
cometh unto thee, meek, and sitting upon an ass, and a colt the
foal of an ass.
21:6 And the disciples went, and did as Jesus commanded
21:7 And brought the ass, and the colt, and put on them
their clothes, and they set him thereon.
21:8 And a very great multitude spread their garments in
the way; others cut down branches from the trees, and strawed
them in the way.
21:9 And the multitudes that went before, and that
followed, cried, saying, Hosanna to the son of David: Blessed
is he that cometh in the name of the Lord; Hosanna in
21:10 And when he was come into Jerusalem, all the city
was moved, saying, Who is this?

of Nazareth of Galilee.

out all them that sold and bought in the temple, and overthrew
the tables of the moneychangers, and the seats of them that

written, My house shall be called the house of prayer; but ye
have made it a den of thieves.

temple; and he healed them.
21:15 And when the chief priests and scribes saw the
wonderful things that he did, and the children crying in the
temple, and saying, Hosanna to the son of David; they were sore

And Jesus saith unto them, Yea; have ye
never read, Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings thou hast

Bethany; and he lodged there.

it, and found nothing thereon, but leaves only, and said unto
it, Let no fruit grow on thee
henceforward for ever. And presently the fig tree
21:20 And when the disciples saw it, they
marvelled, saying, How soon is the fig tree withered away!
21:21 Jesus answered and said unto them, Verily I say unto you, If ye have faith, and doubt
not, ye shall not only do this which is done to the fig
tree, but also if ye shall say unto this mountain, Be thou
removed, and be thou cast into the sea; it shall be

ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive.

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 authority?

ye tell me, I in like wise will tell you by what authority I do

was it? from heaven, or of men? And they reasoned with
themselves, saying, If we shall say, From heaven; he will say
unto us, Why did ye not then believe him?
21:26 But if we shall say, Of men; we fear the people;
for all hold John as a prophet.
21:27 And they answered Jesus, and said, We cannot tell.
And he said unto them, Neither tell I you
by what authority I do these things.
21:28 But what think ye? A
certain man had two sons; and he came to the first, and
said, Son, go work to day in my vineyard.
21:29 He answered and said, I will
not: but afterward he repented, and went.
21:30 And he came to the second,

the will of his father? They say unto him, The
first. Jesus saith unto them, Verily I
say unto you, That the publicans and the harlots go into the
kingdom of God before you.

the way of righteousness, and ye believed him not: but the
publicans and the harlots believed him: and ye, when ye had
seen it, repented not afterward, that ye might believe

was a certain householder, which planted a vineyard, and hedged
it round about, and digged a winepress in it, and built a
tower, and let it out to husbandmen, and went into a far

fruit drew near, he sent his servants to the husbandmen, that
they might receive the fruits of it.
21:35 And the husbandmen took his
servants, and beat one, and killed another, and stoned
21:36 Again, he sent other
servants more than the first: and they did unto them

them his son, saying, They will reverence my son.
21:38 But when the husbandmen saw
the son, they said among themselves, This is the heir; come,
let us kill him, and let us seize on his

cast him out of the vineyard, and slew
21:40 When the lord therefore of
the vineyard cometh, what will he do unto those

wicked men, and will let out his vineyard unto other
husbandmen, which shall render him the fruits in their

ye never read in the scriptures, The stone which the builders
rejected, the same is become the head of the corner: this is
the Lord's doing, and it is marvellous in our eyes?
21:43 Therefore say I unto you,
The kingdom of God shall be taken from you, and given to a
nation bringing forth the fruits thereof.
21:44 And whosoever shall fall on
this stone shall be broken: but on whomsoever it shall fall, it
will grind him to powder.
21:45 And when the chief priests and Pharisees had heard
his parables, they perceived that he spake of them.

feared the multitude, because they took him for a prophet.

them again by parables, and said,

unto a certain king, which made a marriage for his

to call them that were bidden to the wedding: and they would

servants, saying, Tell them which are bidden, Behold, I have
prepared my dinner: my oxen and my fatlings are
killed, and all things are ready: come unto the

it, and went their ways, one to his farm, another to his

servants, and entreated them spitefully, and slew
22:7 But when the king heard
thereof, he was wroth: and he sent forth his armies, and
destroyed those murderers, and burned up their city.
22:8 Then saith he to his
servants, The wedding is ready, but they which were bidden were

highways, and as many as ye shall find, bid to the

into the highways, and gathered together all as many as they
found, both bad and good: and the wedding was furnished with

see the guests, he saw there a man which had not on a wedding

Friend, how camest thou in hither not having a wedding garment?
And he was speechless.
22:13 Then said the king to the
servants, Bind him hand and foot, and take him away, and cast
him into outer darkness; there shall be weeping and
gnashing of teeth.
22:14 For many are called, but few
22:15 Then went the Pharisees, and took counsel how they
might entangle him in his talk.
22:16 And they sent out unto him their disciples with
the Herodians, saying, Master, we know that thou art true, and
teachest the way of God in truth, neither carest thou for any
man: for thou regardest not the person of men.
22:17 Tell us therefore, What thinkest thou? Is it
lawful to give tribute unto Caesar, or not?
22:18 But Jesus perceived their wickedness, and said,
Why tempt ye me, ye
22:19 Shew me the tribute
money. And they brought unto him a penny.

them, Render therefore unto Caesar the
things which are Caesar's; and unto God the things that are

marvelled, and left him, and went their way.
22:23 The same day came to him the Sadducees, which say
that there is no resurrection, and asked him,
22:24 Saying, Master, Moses said, If a man die, having
no children, his brother shall marry his wife, and raise up
seed unto his brother.
22:25 Now there were with us seven brethren: and the
first, when he had married a wife, deceased, and, having no
issue, left his wife unto his brother:
22:26 Likewise the second also, and the third, unto the
22:27 And last of all the woman died also.
22:28 Therefore in the resurrection whose wife shall she
be of the seven? for they all had her.
22:29 Jesus answered and said unto them, Ye do err, not knowing the scriptures, nor the power
22:30 For in the resurrection they
neither marry, nor are given in marriage, but are as the angels
of God in heaven.
22:31 But as touching the
resurrection of the dead, have ye not read that which was
spoken unto you by God, saying,
22:32 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.
22:33 And when the multitude heard this, they
were astonished at his doctrine.
22:34 But when the Pharisees had heard that he had put
the Sadducees to silence, they were gathered together.
22:35 Then one of them, which was a lawyer, asked
him a question, tempting him, and saying,

shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all
thy soul, and with all thy mind.
22:38 This is the first and great

hang all the law and the prophets.

Christ? whose son is he? They say unto him, The
son of David.

doth David in spirit call him Lord, saying,

Sit thou on my right hand, till I make thine enemies thy

how is he his son?

23:2 Saying, The scribes and the
Pharisees sit in Moses' seat:
23:3 All therefore whatsoever they
bid you observe, that observe and do; but do not ye
after their works: for they say, and do not.
23:4 For they bind heavy burdens
and grievous to be borne, and lay them on men's
shoulders; but they themselves will not move them with
one of their fingers.
23:5 But all their works they do
for to be seen of men: they make broad their phylacteries, and
enlarge the borders of their garments,
23:6 And love the uppermost rooms
at feasts, and the chief seats in the synagogues,
23:7 And greetings in the markets,
and to be called of men, Rabbi, Rabbi.

for one is your Master, even Christ; and all ye are

father upon the earth: for one is your Father, which is in

masters: for one is your Master, even Christ.

among you shall be your servant.

himself shall be abased; and he that shall humble himself shall
23:13 But woe unto you, scribes
and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye shut up the kingdom of heaven
against men: for ye neither go in yourselves, neither
suffer ye them that are entering to go in.

Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye devour widows' houses, and for a
pretence make long prayer: therefore ye shall receive the
23:15 Woe unto you, scribes and
Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye compass sea and land to make one
proselyte, and when he is made, ye make him twofold more the
child of hell than yourselves.
23:16 Woe unto you, ye
blind guides, which say, Whosoever shall swear by the temple,
it is nothing; but whosoever shall swear by the gold of the
temple, he is a debtor!
23:17 Ye fools and blind:
for whether is greater, the gold, or the temple that
sanctifieth the gold?
23:18 And, Whosoever shall swear
by the altar, it is nothing; but whosoever sweareth by the gift
that is upon it, he is guilty.
23:19 Ye fools and blind:
for whether is greater, the gift, or the altar that
sanctifieth the gift?
23:20 Whoso therefore shall swear
by the altar, sweareth by it, and by all things

cummin, and have omitted the weightier matters of the
law, judgment, mercy, and faith: these ought ye to have done,
and not to leave the other undone.

which strain at a gnat, and swallow a camel.

Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye make clean the outside of the cup
and of the platter, but within they are full of extortion and

cleanse first that which is within the cup and platter,
that the outside of them may be clean also.

Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye are like unto whited sepulchres,
which indeed appear beautiful outward, but are within full of
dead men's bones, and of all uncleanness.
23:28 Even so ye also outwardly
appear righteous unto men, but within ye are full of hypocrisy

Pharisees, hypocrites! because ye build the tombs of the
prophets, and garnish the sepulchres of the

the days of our fathers, we would not have been partakers with
them in the blood of the prophets.

of your fathers.

ye generation of vipers, how can ye escape the damnation

unto you prophets, and wise men, and scribes: and some
of them ye shall kill and crucify; and some of them
shall ye scourge in your synagogues, and persecute them
from city to city:

the righteous blood shed upon the earth, from the blood of
righteous Abel unto the blood of Zacharias son of Barachias,
whom ye slew between the temple and the altar.

these things shall come upon this generation.

thou that killest the prophets, and stonest them which
are sent unto thee, how often would I have gathered thy
children together, even as a hen gathereth her chickens under
her wings, and ye would not!

unto you desolate.

not see me henceforth, till ye shall say, Blessed is he
that cometh in the name of the Lord.

rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these
things must come to pass, but the end is not

nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be
famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers

beginning of sorrows.

up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated

offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one

abound, the love of many shall wax cold.

unto the end, the same shall be saved.

kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto
all nations; and then shall the end come.

the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet,
stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him

they all slumbered and slept.
25:6 And at midnight there was a
cry made, Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet
25:7 Then all those virgins arose,
and trimmed their lamps.
25:8 And the foolish said unto the
wise, Give us of your oil; for our lamps are gone
25:9 But the wise answered,
saying, Not so; lest there be not enough for us and you:
but go ye rather to them that sell, and buy for
25:10 And while they went to buy,
the bridegroom came; and they that were ready went in with him
to the marriage: and the door was shut.
25:11 Afterward came also the
other virgins, saying, Lord, Lord, open to us.
25:12 But he answered and said,
Verily I say unto you, I know you not.
25:13 Watch therefore, for ye know
neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man
25:14 For the kingdom of heaven
is as a man traveling into a far country, who called
his own servants, and delivered unto them his goods.
25:15 And unto one he gave five
talents, to another two, and to another one; to every man
according to his several ability; and straightway took his
25:16 Then he that had received
the five talents went and traded with the same, and made
them other five talents.
25:17 And likewise he that had
received two, he also gained other two.
25:18 But he that had received one
went and digged in the earth, and hid his lord's
25:19 After a long time the lord
of those servants cometh, and reckoneth with them.
25:20 And so he that had received
five talents came and brought other five talents, saying, Lord,
thou deliveredst unto me five talents: behold, I have gained
beside them five talents more.
25:21 His lord said unto him, Well
done, thou good and faithful servant: thou hast been
faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many
things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord.
25:22 He also that had received
two talents came and said, Lord, thou deliveredst unto me two
talents: behold, I have gained two other talents beside
25:23 His lord said unto him, Well
done, good and faithful servant; thou hast been faithful over a
few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou
into the joy of thy lord.
25:24 Then he which had received
the one talent came and said, Lord, I knew thee that thou art
an hard man, reaping where thou hast not sown, and gathering
where thou hast not strawed:
25:25 And I was afraid, and went
and hid thy talent in the earth: lo, there thou hast
that is thine.
25:26 His lord answered and said
unto him, Thou wicked and slothful servant, thou knewest
that I reap where I sowed not, and gather where I have not
25:27 Thou oughtest therefore to
have put my money to the exchangers, and then at my
coming I should have received mine own with usury.
25:28 Take therefore the talent
from him, and give it unto him which hath ten
25:29 For unto every one that hath
shall be given, and he shall have abundance: but from him that
hath not shall be taken away even that which he
25:30 And cast ye the unprofitable
servant into outer darkness: there shall be weeping and
gnashing of teeth.
25:31 When the Son of man shall
come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall
he sit upon the throne of his glory:
25:32 And before him shall be
gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from
another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the
25:33 And he shall set the sheep
on his right hand, but the goats on the left.
25:34 Then shall the King say unto
them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit
the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the
25:35 For I was an hungered, and
ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a
stranger, and ye took me in:
25:36 Naked, and ye clothed me: I
was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto
25:37 Then shall the righteous
answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungered, and fed
thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink?
25:38 When saw we thee a stranger,
and took thee in? or naked, and clothed
25:39 Or when saw we thee sick, or
in prison, and came unto thee?
25:40 And the King shall answer
and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have
done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye
have done it unto me.
25:41 Then shall he say also unto
them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into
everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his
25:42 For I was an hungered, and
ye gave me no meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me no
25:43 I was a stranger, and ye
took me not in: naked, and ye clothed me not: sick, and in
prison, and ye visited me not.
25:44 Then shall they also answer
him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungered, or athirst, or
a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not
minister unto thee?
25:45 Then shall he answer them,
saying, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye did it not
to one of the least of these, ye did it not to
25:46 And these shall go away into
everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life
[ Matthew: Chapter
25: | Verses: 46 | Words: 995 ]
ND it came to pass, when Jesus
had finished all these sayings, he said unto his disciples,
26:2 Ye know that after two days
is the feast of the passover, and the Son of man is
betrayed to be crucified.
26:3 Then assembled together the chief priests, and the
scribes, and the elders of the people, unto the palace of the
high priest, who was called Caiaphas,
26:4 And consulted that they might take Jesus by
subtilty, and kill him.
26:5 But they said, Not on the feast day, lest
there be an uproar among the people.
26:6 Now when Jesus was in Bethany, in the house of
Simon the leper,
26:7 There came unto him a woman having an alabaster box
of very precious ointment, and poured it on his head, as he sat
26:8 But when his disciples saw it, they had
indignation, saying, To what purpose is this waste?
26:9 For this ointment might have been sold for much,
and given to the poor.
26:10 When Jesus understood it, he said unto
them, Why trouble ye the woman? for she
hath wrought a good work upon me.
26:11 For ye have the poor always
with you; but me ye have not always.
26:12 For in that she hath poured
this ointment on my body, she did it for my
26:13 Verily I say unto you,
Wheresoever this gospel shall be preached in the whole world,
there shall also this, that this woman hath done, be
told for a memorial of her.
26:14 Then one of the twelve, called Judas Iscariot,
went unto the chief priests,
26:15 And said unto them, What will ye give me,
and I will deliver him unto you? And they covenanted with him
for thirty pieces of silver.
26:16 And from that time he sought opportunity to betray
26:17 Now 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
26:18 And he said, Go into the
city to such a man, and say unto him, The Master saith, My time
is at hand; I will keep the passover at thy house with my
26:19 And the disciples did as Jesus had appointed them;
and they made ready the passover.
26:20 Now when the even was come, he sat down with the
26:21 And as they did eat, he said, Verily I say unto you, that one of you shall betray
26:22 And they were exceeding sorrowful, and began every
one of them to say unto him, Lord, is it I?
26:23 And he answered and said, He
that dippeth his hand with me in the dish, the same
shall betray me.
26:24 The Son of man goeth as it
is written of him: but woe unto that man by whom the Son of man
is betrayed! it had been good for that man if he had not been
26:25 Then Judas, which betrayed him, answered and said,
Master, is it I? He said unto him, Thou
26:26 And as they were eating, Jesus took bread, and
blessed it, and brake it, and gave it to
the disciples, and said, Take, eat; this
is my body.
26:27 And he took the cup, and gave thanks, and gave
it to them, saying, Drink ye all
26:28 For this is my blood of the
new testament, which is shed for many for the remission of
26:29 But I say unto you, I will
not drink henceforth of this fruit of the vine, until that day
when I drink it new with you in my Father's kingdom.
26:30 And when they had sung an hymn, they went out into
the mount of Olives.
26:31 Then saith Jesus unto them, All ye shall be offended because of me this night:
for it is written, I will smite the shepherd, and the sheep of
the flock shall be scattered abroad.
26:32 But after I am risen again,
I will go before you into Galilee.
26:33 Peter answered and said unto him, Though all
men shall be offended because of thee, yet will I
never be offended.
26:34 Jesus said unto him, Verily
I say unto thee, That this night, before the cock crow, thou
shalt deny me thrice.
26:35 Peter said unto him, Though I should die with
thee, yet will I not deny thee. Likewise also said all the
26:36 Then cometh Jesus with them unto a place called
Gethsemane, and saith unto the disciples, Sit ye here, while I go and pray yonder.
26:37 And he took with him Peter and the two sons of
Zebedee, and began to be sorrowful and very heavy.
26:38 Then saith he unto them, My
soul is exceeding sorrowful, even unto death: tarry ye here,
and watch with me.
26:39 And he went a little farther, and fell on his
face, and prayed, saying, O my Father, if
it be possible, let this cup pass from me: nevertheless not as
I will, but as thou wilt.
26:40 And he cometh unto the disciples, and findeth them
asleep, and saith unto Peter, What, could
ye not watch with me one hour?
26:41 Watch and pray, that ye
enter not into temptation: the spirit indeed is willing,
but the flesh is weak.
26:42 He went away again the second time, and prayed,
saying, O my Father, if this cup may not
pass away from me, except I drink it, thy will be
26:43 And he came and found them asleep again: for their
eyes were heavy.
26:44 And he left them, and went away again, and prayed
the third time, saying the same words.
26:45 Then cometh he to his disciples, and saith unto
them, Sleep on now, and take your
rest: behold, the hour is at hand, and the Son of man is
betrayed into the hands of sinners.
26:46 Rise, let us be going:
behold, he is at hand that doth betray me.
26:47 And while he yet spake, lo, Judas, one of the
twelve, came, and with him a great multitude with swords and
staves, from the chief priests and elders of the people.
26:48 Now he that betrayed him gave them a sign, saying,
Whomsoever I shall kiss, that same is he: hold him fast.
26:49 And forthwith he came to Jesus, and said, Hail,
master; and kissed him.
26:50 And Jesus said unto him, Friend, wherefore art thou come? Then came
they, and laid hands on Jesus, and took him.
26:51 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's, and smote off his ear.
26:52 Then said Jesus unto him, Put up again thy sword into his place: for all they
that take the sword shall perish with the sword.
26:53 Thinkest thou that I cannot
now pray to my Father, and he shall presently give me more than
twelve legions of angels?
26:54 But how then shall the
scriptures be fulfilled, that thus it must be?
26:55 In that same hour said Jesus to the multitudes,
Are ye come out as against a thief with
swords and staves for to take me? I sat daily with you teaching
in the temple, and ye laid no hold on me.
26:56 But all this was done, that
the scriptures of the prophets might be fulfilled. Then
all the disciples forsook him, and fled.
26:57 And they that had laid hold on Jesus led
him away to Caiaphas the high priest, where the scribes
and the elders were assembled.
26:58 But Peter followed him afar off unto the high
priest's palace, and went in, and sat with the servants, to see
26:59 Now the chief priests, and elders, and all the
council, sought false witness against Jesus, to put him to
26:60 But found none: yea, though many false witnesses
came, yet found they none. At the last came two false
26:61 And said, This fellow said, I am able to
destroy the temple of God, and to build it in three days.
26:62 And the high priest arose, and said unto him,
Answerest thou nothing? what is it which these witness
26:63 But Jesus held his peace. And the high priest
answered and said unto him, I adjure thee by the living God,
that thou tell us whether thou be the Christ, the Son of
26:64 Jesus saith unto him, Thou
hast said: nevertheless I say unto you, Hereafter shall ye see
the Son of man sitting on the right hand of power, and coming
in the clouds of heaven.
26:65 Then the high priest rent his clothes, saying, He
hath spoken blasphemy; what further need have we of witnesses?
behold, now ye have heard his blasphemy.
26:66 What think ye? They answered and said, He is
guilty of death.
26:67 Then did they spit in his face, and buffeted him;
and others smote him with the palms of their hands,
26:68 Saying, Prophesy unto us, thou Christ, Who is he
that smote thee?
26:69 Now Peter sat without in the palace: and a damsel
came unto him, saying, Thou also wast with Jesus of
26:70 But he denied before them all, saying, I
know not what thou sayest.
26:71 And when he was gone out into the porch, another
maid saw him, and said unto them that were there, This
fellow was also with Jesus of Nazareth.
26:72 And again he denied with an oath, I do not know
26:73 And after a while came unto him they that
stood by, and said to Peter, Surely thou also art one of
them; for thy speech bewrayeth thee.
26:74 Then began he to curse and to swear,
saying, I know not the man. And immediately the cock
26:75 And Peter remembered the word of Jesus, which said
unto him, Before the cock crow, thou shalt deny me thrice. And
he went out, and wept bitterly.
[ Matthew: Chapter
26: | Verses: 75 | Words: 1625 ]
HEN the morning was come, all the
chief priests and elders of the people took counsel against
Jesus to put him to death:
27:2 And when they had bound him, they led him
away, and delivered him to Pontius Pilate the governor.
27:3 Then Judas, which had betrayed him, when he saw
that he was condemned, repented himself, and brought again the
thirty pieces of silver to the chief priests and elders,
27:4 Saying, I have sinned in that I have betrayed the
innocent blood. And they said, What is that to us? see
thou to that.
27:5 And he cast down the pieces of silver in the
temple, and departed, and went and hanged himself.
27:6 And the chief priests took the silver pieces, and
said, It is not lawful for to put them into the treasury,
because it is the price of blood.
27:7 And they took counsel, and bought with them the
potter's field, to bury strangers in.
27:8 Wherefore that field was called, The field of
blood, unto this day.
27:9 Then was fulfilled that which was spoken by Jeremy
the prophet, saying, And they took the thirty pieces of silver,
the price of him that was valued, whom they of the children of
Israel did value;
27:10 And gave them for the potter's field, as the Lord
27:11 And Jesus stood before the governor: and the
governor asked him, saying, Art thou the King of the Jews? And
Jesus said unto him, Thou
27:12 And when he was accused of the chief priests and
elders, he answered nothing.
27:13 Then said Pilate unto him, Hearest thou not how
many things they witness against thee?
27:14 And he answered him to never a word; insomuch that
the governor marvelled greatly.
27:15 Now at that feast the governor was wont to
release unto the people a prisoner, whom they would.
27:16 And they had then a notable prisoner, called
27:17 Therefore when they were gathered together, Pilate
said unto them, Whom will ye that I release unto you? Barabbas,
or Jesus which is called Christ?
27:18 For he knew that for envy they had delivered
27:19 When he was set down on the judgment seat, his
wife sent unto him, saying, Have thou nothing to do with that
just man: for I have suffered many things this day in a dream
because of him.
27:20 But the chief priests and elders persuaded the
multitude that they should ask Barabbas, and destroy Jesus.
27:21 The governor answered and said unto them, Whether
of the twain will ye that I release unto you? They said,
27:22 Pilate saith unto them, What shall I do then with
Jesus which is called Christ? They all say unto him, Let
him be crucified.
27:23 And the governor said, Why, what evil hath he
done? But they cried out the more, saying, Let him be
27:24 When Pilate saw that he could prevail nothing, but
that rather a tumult was made, he took water, and washed
his hands before the multitude, saying, I am innocent of
the blood of this just person: see ye to it.
27:25 Then answered all the people, and said, His blood
be on us, and on our children.
27:26 Then released he Barabbas unto them: and when he
had scourged Jesus, he delivered him to be
27:27 Then the soldiers of the governor took Jesus into
the common hall, and gathered unto him the whole band of
27:28 And they stripped him, and put on him a scarlet
27:29 And when they had platted a crown of thorns, they
put it upon his head, and a reed in his right hand: and
they bowed the knee before him, and mocked him, saying, Hail,
King of the Jews!
27:30 And they spit upon him, and took the reed, and
smote him on the head.
27:31 And after that they had mocked him, they took the
robe off from him, and put his own raiment on him, and led him
away to crucify him.
27:32 And as they came out, they found a man of Cyrene,
Simon by name: him they compelled to bear his cross.
27:33 And when they were come unto a place called
Golgotha, that is to say, a place of a skull,
27:34 They gave him vinegar to drink mingled with gall:
and when he had tasted thereof, he would not drink.
27:35 And they crucified him, and parted his garments,
casting lots: that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by
the prophet, They parted my garments among them, and upon my
vesture did they cast lots.
27:36 And sitting down they watched him there;
27:37 And set up over his head his accusation written,
THIS IS JESUS THE KING OF THE JEWS.
27:38 Then were there two thieves crucified with him,
one on the right hand, and another on the left.
27:39 And they that passed by reviled him, wagging their
27:40 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 cross.
27:41 Likewise also the chief priests mocking
him, with the scribes and elders, said,
27:42 He saved others; himself he cannot save. If he be
the King of Israel, let him now come down from the cross, and
we will believe him.
27:43 He trusted in God; let him deliver him now, if he
will have him: for he said, I am the Son of God.
27:44 The thieves also, which were crucified with him,
cast the same in his teeth.
27:45 Now from the sixth hour there was darkness over
all the land unto the ninth hour.
27:46 And about the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud
voice, saying, Eli, Eli, lama
sabachthani? that is to say, My God, my God, why hast
thou forsaken me?
27:47 Some of them that stood there, when they heard
that, said, This man calleth for Elias.
27:48 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.
27:49 The rest said, Let be, let us see whether Elias
will come to save him.
27:50 Jesus, when he had cried again with a loud voice,
yielded up the ghost.
27:51 And, behold, the veil of the temple was rent in
twain from the top to the bottom; and the earth did quake, and
the rocks rent;
27:52 And the graves were opened; and many bodies of the
saints which slept arose,
27:53 And came out of the graves after his resurrection,
and went into the holy city, and appeared unto many.
27:54 Now when the centurion, and they that were with
him, watching Jesus, saw the earthquake, and those things that
were done, they feared greatly, saying, Truly this was the Son
27:55 And many women were there beholding afar off,
which followed Jesus from Galilee, ministering unto him:
27:56 Among which was Mary Magdalene, and Mary the
mother of James and Joses, and the mother of Zebedee's
27:57 When the even was come, there came a rich man of
Arimathaea, named Joseph, who also himself was Jesus'
27:58 He went to Pilate, and begged the body of Jesus.
Then Pilate commanded the body to be delivered.
27:59 And when Joseph had taken the body, he wrapped it
in a clean linen cloth,
27:60 And laid it in his own new tomb, which he had hewn
out in the rock: and he rolled a great stone to the door of the
sepulchre, and departed.
27:61 And there was Mary Magdalene, and the other Mary,
sitting over against the sepulchre.
27:62 Now the next day, that followed the day of the
preparation, the chief priests and Pharisees came together unto
27:63 Saying, Sir, we remember that that deceiver said,
while he was yet alive, After three days I will rise again.
27:64 Command therefore that the sepulchre be made sure
until the third day, lest his disciples come by night, and
steal him away, and say unto the people, He is risen from the
dead: so the last error shall be worse than the first.
27:65 Pilate said unto them, Ye have a watch: go your
way, make it as sure as ye can.
27:66 So they went, and made the sepulchre sure, sealing
the stone, and setting a watch.
[ Matthew: Chapter
27: | Verses: 66 | Words: 1359 ]
N the end of the sabbath, as it
began to dawn toward the first day of the week, came
Mary Magdalene and the other Mary to see the sepulchre.
28:2 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.
28:3 His countenance was like lightning, and his raiment
white as snow:
28:4 And for fear of him the keepers did shake, and
became as dead men.
28:5 And the angel answered and said unto the women,
Fear not ye: for I know that ye seek Jesus, which was
28:6 He is not here: for he is risen, as he said. Come,
see the place where the Lord lay.
28:7 And go quickly, and tell his disciples that he is
risen from the dead; and, behold, he goeth before you into
Galilee; there shall ye see him: lo, I have told you.
28:8 And they departed quickly from the sepulchre with
fear and great joy; and did run to bring his disciples
28:9 And as they went to tell his disciples, behold,
Jesus met them, saying, All hail.
And they came and held him by the feet, and worshipped him.
28:10 Then said Jesus unto them, Be not afraid: go tell my brethren that they go into
Galilee, and there shall they see me.
28:11 Now when they were going, behold, some of the
watch came into the city, and shewed unto the chief priests all
the things that were done.
28:12 And when they were assembled with the elders, and
had taken counsel, they gave large money unto the soldiers,
28:13 Saying, Say ye, His disciples came by night, and
stole him away while we slept.
28:14 And if this come to the governor's ears, we will
persuade him, and secure you.
28:15 So they took the money, and did as they were
taught: and this saying is commonly reported among the Jews
until this day.
28:16 Then the eleven disciples went away into Galilee,
into a mountain where Jesus had appointed them.
28:17 And when they saw him, they worshipped him: but
28:18 And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying,
All power is given unto me in heaven and
28:19 Go ye therefore, and teach
all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of
the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:
28:20 Teaching them to observe all
things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you
alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.
