10:1 And he arose from thence, and cometh
into the coasts of Judaea by the farther side of Jordan: and the
people resort unto him again; and, as he was wont, he taught them
10:2 And the Pharisees came to him, and
asked him, Is it lawful for a man to put away his wife? tempting him.
10:3 And he answered and said unto them, What did Moses command you?
10:4 And they said, Moses suffered to write
a bill of divorcement, and to put her away.
10:5 And Jesus answered and said unto them, For the hardness of your heart he wrote you this precept.
10:6 But from the beginning of the creation
God made them male and female.
10:7 For this cause shall a man leave his
father and mother, and cleave to his wife;
10:8 And they twain shall be one flesh: so
then they are no more twain, but one flesh.
10:9 What therefore God hath joined
together, let not man put asunder.
10:10 And in the house his disciples asked
him again of the same matter.
10:11 And he saith unto them, Whosoever
shall put away his wife, and marry another, committeth adultery
10:12 And if a woman shall put away her
husband, and be married to another, she committeth adultery.
10:13 And they brought young children to
him, that he should touch them: and his disciples rebuked those that
10:14 But when Jesus saw it, he was much
displeased, and said unto them, Suffer the little children to come
unto me, and forbid them not: for of such is the kingdom of God.
10:15 Verily I say unto you, Whosoever
shall not receive the kingdom of God as a little child, he shall not
10:16 And he took them up in his arms, put
his hands upon them, and blessed them.
10:17 And when he was gone forth into the
way, there came one running, and kneeled to him, and asked him, Good
Master, what shall I do that I may inherit eternal life?
10:18 And Jesus said unto him, Why callest
thou me good? there is none good but one, that is, God.
10:19 Thou knowest the commandments, Do not
commit adultery, Do not kill, Do not steal, Do not bear false witness,
Defraud not, Honour thy father and mother.
10:20 And he answered and said unto him,
Master, all these have I observed from my youth.
10:21 Then Jesus beholding him loved him,
and said unto him, One thing thou lackest: go thy way, sell whatsoever
thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in
heaven: and come, take up the cross, and follow me.
10:22 And he was sad at that saying, and
went away grieved: for he had great possessions.
10:23 And Jesus looked round about, and
saith unto his disciples, How hardly shall they that have riches enter
into the kingdom of God!
10:24 And the disciples were astonished at
his words. But Jesus answereth again, and saith unto them, Children,
how hard is it for them that trust in riches to enter into the kingdom
10:25 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.
10:26 And they were astonished out of
measure, saying among themselves, Who then can be saved?
10:27 And Jesus looking upon them saith, With men it is impossible, but not with God: for with God all things
10:28 Then Peter began to say unto him, Lo,
we have left all, and have followed thee.
10:29 And Jesus answered and said, Verily I
say unto you, There is no man that hath left house, or brethren, or
sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for my
sake, and the gospel's,
10:30 But he shall receive an hundredfold
now in this time, houses, and brethren, and sisters, and mothers, and
children, and lands, with persecutions; and in the world to come
10:31 But many that are first shall be
last; and the last first.
10:32 And they were in the way going up to
Jerusalem; and Jesus went before them: and they were amazed; and as
they followed, they were afraid. And he took again the twelve, and
began to tell them what things should happen unto him,
10:33 Saying, Behold, we go up to
Jerusalem; and the Son of man shall be delivered unto the chief
priests, and unto the scribes; and they shall condemn him to death,
and shall deliver him to the Gentiles:
10:34 And they shall mock him, and shall
scourge him, and shall spit upon him, and shall kill him: and the
third day he shall rise again.
10:35 And James and John, the sons of
Zebedee, come unto him, saying, Master, we would that thou shouldest
do for us whatsoever we shall desire.
10:36 And he said unto them, What would ye
that I should do for you?
10:37 They said unto him, Grant unto us
that we may sit, one on thy right hand, and the other on thy left
hand, in thy glory.
10:38 But Jesus said unto them, Ye know not
what ye ask: can ye drink of the cup that I drink of? and be baptized
with the baptism that I am baptized with?
10:39 And they said unto him, We can. And
Jesus said unto them, Ye shall indeed drink of the cup that I drink
of; and with the baptism that I am baptized withal shall ye be
10:40 But to sit on my right hand and on my
left hand is not mine to give; but it shall be given to them for whom
it is prepared.
10:41 And when the ten heard it, they began
to be much displeased with James and John.
10:42 But Jesus called them to him, and
saith unto them, Ye know that they which are accounted to rule over
the Gentiles exercise lordship over them; and their great ones
exercise authority upon them.
10:43 But so shall it not be among you: but
whosoever will be great among you, shall be your minister:
10:44 And whosoever of you will be the chiefest, shall be servant of all.
10:45 For even the Son of man came not to
be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give his life a ransom for
10:46 And they came to Jericho: and as he
went out of Jericho with his disciples and a great number of people,
blind Bartimaeus, the son of Timaeus, sat by the highway side begging.
10:47 And when he heard that it was Jesus
of Nazareth, he began to cry out, and say, Jesus, thou son of David,
have mercy on me.
10:48 And many charged him that he should
hold his peace: but he cried the more a great deal, Thou son of David,
have mercy on me.
10:49 And Jesus stood still, and commanded
him to be called. And they call the blind man, saying unto him, Be of
good comfort, rise; he calleth thee.
10:50 And he, casting away his garment,
rose, and came to Jesus.
10:51 And Jesus answered and said unto him, What wilt thou that I should do unto thee? The blind man said unto
him, Lord, that I might receive my sight.
10:52 And Jesus said unto him, Go thy way;
thy faith hath made thee whole. And immediately he received his sight,
and followed Jesus in the way.
11:1 And when they came nigh to Jerusalem,
unto Bethphage and Bethany, at the mount of Olives, he sendeth forth
two of his disciples,
11:2 And saith unto them, Go your way into
the village over against you: and as soon as ye be entered into it, ye
shall find a colt tied, whereon never man sat; loose him, and bring
11:3 And if any man say unto you, Why do ye
this? say ye that the Lord hath need of him; and straightway he will
send him hither.
11:4 And they went their way, and found the
colt tied by the door without in a place where two ways met; and they
11:5 And certain of them that stood there
said unto them, What do ye, loosing the colt?
11:6 And they said unto them even as Jesus
had commanded: and they let them go.
11:7 And they brought the colt to Jesus,
and cast their garments on him; and he sat upon him.
11:8 And many spread their garments in the
way: and others cut down branches off the trees, and strawed them in
11:9 And they that went before, and they
that followed, cried, saying, Hosanna; Blessed is he that cometh in
the name of the Lord:
11:10 Blessed be the kingdom of our father
David, that cometh in the name of the Lord: Hosanna in the highest.
11:11 And Jesus entered into Jerusalem, and
into the temple: and when he had looked round about upon all things,
and now the eventide was come, he went out unto Bethany with the
11:12 And on the morrow, when they were
come from Bethany, he was hungry:
11:13 And seeing a fig tree afar off having
leaves, he came, if haply he might find any thing thereon: and when he
came to it, he found nothing but leaves; for the time of figs was not
11:14 And Jesus answered and said unto it, No man eat fruit of thee hereafter for ever. And his disciples heard
11:15 And they come to Jerusalem: and Jesus
went into the temple, and began to cast out them that sold and bought
in the temple, and overthrew the tables of the moneychangers, and the
seats of them that sold doves;
11:16 And would not suffer that any man
should carry any vessel through the temple.
11:17 And he taught, saying unto them, Is
it not written, My house shall be called of all nations the house of
prayer? but ye have made it a den of thieves.
11:18 And the scribes and chief priests
heard it, and sought how they might destroy him: for they feared him,
because all the people was astonished at his doctrine.
11:19 And when even was come, he went out
of the city.
11:20 And in the morning, as they passed
by, they saw the fig tree dried up from the roots.
11:21 And Peter calling to remembrance
saith unto him, Master, behold, the fig tree which thou cursedst is
11:22 And Jesus answering saith unto them, Have faith in God.
11:23 For verily I say unto you, That
whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou
cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe
that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have
whatsoever he saith.
11:24 Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye
shall have them.
11:25 And when ye stand praying, forgive,
if ye have ought against any: that your Father also which is in heaven
may forgive you your trespasses.
11:26 But if ye do not forgive, neither
will your Father which is in heaven forgive your trespasses.
11:27 And they come again to Jerusalem: and
as he was walking in the temple, there come to him the chief priests,
and the scribes, and the elders,
11:28 And say unto him, By what authority
doest thou these things? and who gave thee this authority to do these
11:29 And Jesus answered and said unto
them, I will also ask of you one question, and answer me, and I will
tell you by what authority I do these things.
11:30 The baptism of John, was it from
heaven, or of men? answer me.
11:31 And they reasoned with themselves,
saying, If we shall say, From heaven; he will say, Why then did ye not
11:32 But if we shall say, Of men; they
feared the people: for all men counted John, that he was a prophet
11:33 And they answered and said unto
Jesus, We cannot tell. And Jesus answering saith unto them, Neither do
I tell you by what authority I do these things.
12:1 And he began to speak unto them by
parables. A certain man planted a vineyard, and set an hedge about it,
and digged a place for the winefat, and built a tower, and let it out
to husbandmen, and went into a far country.
12:2 And at the season he sent to the
husbandmen a servant, that he might receive from the husbandmen of the
fruit of the vineyard.
12:3 And they caught him, and beat him, and
sent him away empty.
12:4 And again he sent unto them another
servant; and at him they cast stones, and wounded him in the head, and
sent him away shamefully handled.
12:5 And again he sent another; and him
they killed, and many others; beating some, and killing some.
12:6 Having yet therefore one son, his wellbeloved, he sent him also last unto them, saying, They will
reverence my son.
12:7 But those husbandmen said among
themselves, This is the heir; come, let us kill him, and the
inheritance shall be our's.
12:8 And they took him, and killed him, and
cast him out of the vineyard.
12:9 What shall therefore the lord of the
vineyard do? he will come and destroy the husbandmen, and will give
the vineyard unto others.
12:10 And have ye not read this scripture;
The stone which the builders rejected is become the head of the
12:11 This was the Lord's doing, and it is marvellous in our eyes?
12:12 And they sought to lay hold on him,
but feared the people: for they knew that he had spoken the parable
against them: and they left him, and went their way.
12:13 And they send unto him certain of the
Pharisees and of the Herodians, to catch him in his words.
12:14 And when they were come, they say
unto him, Master, we know that thou art true, and carest for no man:
for thou regardest not the person of men, but teachest the way of God
in truth: Is it lawful to give tribute to Caesar, or not?
12:15 Shall we give, or shall we not give?
But he, knowing their hypocrisy, said unto them, Why tempt ye me?
bring me a penny, that I may see it.
12:16 And they brought it. And he saith
unto them, Whose is this image and superscription? And they said unto
12:17 And Jesus answering said unto them, Render to Caesar the things that are Caesar's, and to God the things
that are God's. And they marvelled at him.
12:18 Then come unto him the Sadducees,
which say there is no resurrection; and they asked him, saying,
12:19 Master, Moses wrote unto us, If a
man's brother die, and leave his wife behind him, and leave no
children, that his brother should take his wife, and raise up seed
unto his brother.
12:20 Now there were seven brethren: and
the first took a wife, and dying left no seed.
12:21 And the second took her, and died,
neither left he any seed: and the third likewise.
12:22 And the seven had her, and left no
seed: last of all the woman died also.
12:23 In the resurrection therefore, when
they shall rise, whose wife shall she be of them? for the seven had
her to wife.
12:24 And Jesus answering said unto them, Do ye not therefore err, because ye know not the scriptures, neither
the power of God?
12:25 For when they shall rise from the
dead, they neither marry, nor are given in marriage; but are as the
angels which are in heaven.
12:26 And as touching the dead, that they
rise: have ye not read in the book of Moses, how in the bush God spake
unto him, saying, I am the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and
the God of Jacob?
12:27 He is not the God of the dead, but
the God of the living: ye therefore do greatly err.
12:28 And one of the scribes came, and
having heard them reasoning together, and perceiving that he had
answered them well, asked him, Which is the first commandment of all?
12:29 And Jesus answered him, The first of
all the commandments is, Hear, O Israel; The Lord our God is one Lord:
12:30 And thou shalt love the Lord thy God
with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and
with all thy strength: this is the first commandment.
12:31 And the second is like, namely this,
Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. There is none other
commandment greater than these.
12:32 And the scribe said unto him, Well,
Master, thou hast said the truth: for there is one God; and there is
none other but he:
12:33 And to love him with all the heart,
and with all the understanding, and with all the soul, and with all
the strength, and to love his neighbour as himself, is more than all
whole burnt offerings and sacrifices.
12:34 And when Jesus saw that he answered
discreetly, he said unto him, Thou art not far from the kingdom of
God. And no man after that durst ask him any question.
12:35 And Jesus answered and said, while he
taught in the temple, How say the scribes that Christ is the son of
12:36 For David himself said by the Holy
Ghost, The Lord said to my Lord, Sit thou on my right hand, till I
make thine enemies thy footstool.
12:37 David therefore himself calleth him
Lord; and whence is he then his son? And the common people heard him
12:38 And he said unto them in his
doctrine, Beware of the scribes, which love to go in long clothing,
and love salutations in the marketplaces,
12:39 And the chief seats in the
synagogues, and the uppermost rooms at feasts:
12:40 Which devour widows' houses, and for
a pretence make long prayers: these shall receive greater damnation.
12:41 And Jesus sat over against the
treasury, and beheld how the people cast money into the treasury: and
many that were rich cast in much.
12:42 And there came a certain poor widow,
and she threw in two mites, which make a farthing.
12:43 And he called unto him his disciples,
and saith unto them, Verily I say unto you, That this poor widow hath
cast more in, than all they which have cast into the treasury:
12:44 For all they did cast in of their
abundance; but she of her want did cast in all that she had, even all
13:1 And as he went out of the temple, one
of his disciples saith unto him, Master, see what manner of stones and
what buildings are here!
13:2 And Jesus answering said unto him, Seest thou these great buildings? there shall not be left one stone
upon another, that shall not be thrown down.
13:3 And as he sat upon the mount of Olives
over against the temple, Peter and James and John and Andrew asked him
13:4 Tell us, when shall these things be?
and what shall be the sign when all these things shall be fulfilled?
13:5 And Jesus answering them began to say, Take heed lest any man deceive you:
13:6 For many shall come in my name,
saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.
13:7 And when ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars, be ye not troubled: for such things must needs be;
but the end shall not be yet.
13:8 For nation shall rise against nation,
and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be earthquakes in divers
places, and there shall be famines and troubles: these are the
beginnings of sorrows.
13:9 But take heed to yourselves: for they
shall deliver you up to councils; and in the synagogues ye shall be
beaten: and ye shall be brought before rulers and kings for my sake,
for a testimony against them.
13:10 And the gospel must first be
published among all nations.
13:11 But when they shall lead you, and
deliver you up, take no thought beforehand what ye shall speak,
neither do ye premeditate: but whatsoever shall be given you in that
hour, that speak ye: for it is not ye that speak, but the Holy Ghost.
13:12 Now the brother shall betray the
brother to death, and the father the son; and children shall rise up
against their parents, and shall cause them to be put to death.
13:13 And ye shall be hated of all men for
my name's sake: but he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall
13:14 But when ye shall see the abomination
of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing where it
ought not, (let him that readeth understand,) then let them that be in Judaea flee to the mountains:
13:15 And let him that is on the housetop
not go down into the house, neither enter therein, to take any thing
out of his house:
13:16 And let him that is in the field not
turn back again for to take up his garment.
13:17 But woe to them that are with child,
and to them that give suck in those days!
13:18 And pray ye that your flight be not
in the winter.
13:19 For in those days shall be
affliction, such as was not from the beginning of the creation which
God created unto this time, neither shall be.
13:20 And except that the Lord had
shortened those days, no flesh should be saved: but for the elect's
sake, whom he hath chosen, he hath shortened the days.
13:21 And then if any man shall say to you,
Lo, here is Christ; or, lo, he is there; believe him not:
13:22 For false Christs and false prophets
shall rise, and shall shew signs and wonders, to seduce, if it were
possible, even the elect.
13:23 But take ye heed: behold, I have
foretold you all things.
13:24 But in those days, after that
tribulation, the sun shall be darkened, and the moon shall not give
13:25 And the stars of heaven shall fall,
and the powers that are in heaven shall be shaken.
13:26 And then shall they see the Son of
man coming in the clouds with great power and glory.
13:27 And then shall he send his angels,
and shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from the
uttermost part of the earth to the uttermost part of heaven.
13:28 Now learn a parable of the fig tree;
When her branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that
summer is near:
13:29 So ye in like manner, when ye shall
see these things come to pass, know that it is nigh, even at the
13:30 Verily I say unto you, that this
generation shall not pass, till all these things be done.
13:31 Heaven and earth shall pass away: but
my words shall not pass away.
13:32 But of that day and that hour knoweth
no man, no, not the angels which are in heaven, neither the Son, but
13:33 Take ye heed, watch and pray: for ye
know not when the time is.
13:34 For the Son of Man is as a man taking
a far journey, who left his house, and gave authority to his servants,
and to every man his work, and commanded the porter to watch.
13:35 Watch ye therefore: for ye know not
when the master of the house cometh, at even, or at midnight, or at
the cockcrowing, or in the morning:
13:36 Lest coming suddenly he find you
13:37 And what I say unto you I say unto
14:1 After two days was the feast of the
passover, and of unleavened bread: and the chief priests and the
scribes sought how they might take him by craft, and put him to death.
14:2 But they said, Not on the feast day,
lest there be an uproar of the people.
14:3 And being in Bethany in the house of
Simon the leper, as he sat at meat, there came a woman having an
alabaster box of ointment of spikenard very precious; and she brake
the box, and poured it on his head.
14:4 And there were some that had
indignation within themselves, and said, Why was this waste of the
14:5 For it might have been sold for more
than three hundred pence, and have been given to the poor. And they
murmured against her.
14:6 And Jesus said, Let her alone; why
trouble ye her? she hath wrought a good work on me.
14:7 For ye have the poor with you always,
and whensoever ye will ye may do them good: but me ye have not always.
14:8 She hath done what she could: she is
come aforehand to anoint my body to the burying.
14:9 Verily I say unto you, Wheresoever
this gospel shall be preached throughout the whole world, this also
that she hath done shall be spoken of for a memorial of her.
14:10 And Judas Iscariot, one of the
twelve, went unto the chief priests, to betray him unto them.
14:11 And when they heard it, they were
glad, and promised to give him money. And he sought how he might
conveniently betray him.
14:12 And the first day of unleavened
bread, when they killed the passover, his disciples said unto him,
Where wilt thou that we go and prepare that thou mayest eat the
14:13 And he sendeth forth two of his
disciples, and saith unto them, Go ye into the city, and there shall
meet you a man bearing a pitcher of water: follow him.
14:14 And wheresoever he shall go in, say
ye to the goodman of the house, The Master saith, Where is the
guestchamber, where I shall eat the passover with my disciples?
14:15 And he will shew you a large upper
room furnished and prepared: there make ready for us.
14:16 And his disciples went forth, and
came into the city, and found as he had said unto them: and they made
ready the passover.
14:17 And in the evening he cometh with the
14:18 And as they sat and did eat, Jesus
said, Verily I say unto you, One of you which eateth with me shall
14:19 And they began to be sorrowful, and
to say unto him one by one, Is it I? and another said, Is it I?
14:20 And he answered and said unto them, It is one of the twelve, that dippeth with me in the dish.
14:21 The Son of man indeed goeth, as it is
written of him: but woe to that man by whom the Son of man is
betrayed! good were it for that man if he had never been born.
14:22 And as they did eat, Jesus took
bread, and blessed, and brake it, and gave to them, and said, Take,
eat: this is my body.
14:23 And he took the cup, and when he had
given thanks, he gave it to them: and they all drank of it.
14:24 And he said unto them, This is my
blood of the new testament, which is shed for many.
14:25 Verily I say unto you, I will drink
no more of the fruit of the vine, until that day that I drink it new
in the kingdom of God.
14:26 And when they had sung an hymn, they
went out into the mount of Olives.
14:27 And Jesus saith unto them, All ye
shall be offended because of me this night: for it is written, I will
smite the shepherd, and the sheep shall be scattered.
14:28 But after that I am risen, I will go
before you into Galilee.
14:29 But Peter said unto him, Although all
shall be offended, yet will not I.
14:30 And Jesus saith unto him, Verily I
say unto thee, That this day, even in this night, before the cock crow
twice, thou shalt deny me thrice.
14:31 But he spake the more vehemently, If
I should die with thee, I will not deny thee in any wise. Likewise
also said they all.
14:32 And they came to a place which was
named Gethsemane: and he saith to his disciples, Sit ye here, while I
14:33 And he taketh with him Peter and
James and John, and began to be sore amazed, and to be very heavy;
14:34 And saith unto them, My soul is
exceeding sorrowful unto death: tarry ye here, and watch.
14:35 And he went forward a little, and
fell on the ground, and prayed that, if it were possible, the hour
might pass from him.
14:36 And he said, Abba, Father, all things
are possible unto thee; take away this cup from me: nevertheless not
what I will, but what thou wilt.
14:37 And he cometh, and findeth them
sleeping, and saith unto Peter, Simon, sleepest thou? couldest not
thou watch one hour?
14:38 Watch ye and pray, lest ye enter into
temptation. The spirit truly is ready, but the flesh is weak.
14:39 And again he went away, and prayed,
and spake the same words.
14:40 And when he returned, he found them
asleep again, (for their eyes were heavy,) neither wist they what to
14:41 And he cometh the third time, and
saith unto them, Sleep on now, and take your rest: it is enough, the
hour is come; behold, the Son of man is betrayed into the hands of
14:42 Rise up, let us go; lo, he that betrayeth me is at hand.
14:43 And immediately, while he yet spake,
cometh Judas, one of the twelve, and with him a great multitude with
swords and staves, from the chief priests and the scribes and the
14:44 And he that betrayed him had given
them a token, saying, Whomsoever I shall kiss, that same is he; take
him, and lead him away safely.
14:45 And as soon as he was come, he goeth
straightway to him, and saith, Master, master; and kissed him.
14:46 And they laid their hands on him, and
14:47 And one of them that stood by drew a
sword, and smote a servant of the high priest, and cut off his ear.
14:48 And Jesus answered and said unto
them, Are ye come out, as against a thief, with swords and with staves
to take me?
14:49 I was daily with you in the temple
teaching, and ye took me not: but the scriptures must be fulfilled.
14:50 And they all forsook him, and fled.
14:51 And there followed him a certain
young man, having a linen cloth cast about his naked body; and the
young men laid hold on him:
14:52 And he left the linen cloth, and fled
from them naked.
14:53 And they led Jesus away to the high
priest: and with him were assembled all the chief priests and the
elders and the scribes.
14:54 And Peter followed him afar off, even
into the palace of the high priest: and he sat with the servants, and
warmed himself at the fire.
14:55 And the chief priests and all the
council sought for witness against Jesus to put him to death; and
14:56 For many bare false witness against
him, but their witness agreed not together.
14:57 And there arose certain, and bare
false witness against him, saying,
14:58 We heard him say, I will destroy this
temple that is made with hands, and within three days I will build
another made without hands.
14:59 But neither so did their witness
14:60 And the high priest stood up in the
midst, and asked Jesus, saying, Answerest thou nothing? what is it
which these witness against thee?
14:61 But he held his peace, and answered
nothing. Again the high priest asked him, and said unto him, Art thou
the Christ, the Son of the Blessed?
14:62 And Jesus said, I am: and ye shall
see the Son of man sitting on the right hand of power, and coming in
the clouds of heaven.
14:63 Then the high priest rent his
clothes, and saith, What need we any further witnesses?
14:64 Ye have heard the blasphemy: what
think ye? And they all condemned him to be guilty of death.
14:65 And some began to spit on him, and to
cover his face, and to buffet him, and to say unto him, Prophesy: and
the servants did strike him with the palms of their hands.
14:66 And as Peter was beneath in the
palace, there cometh one of the maids of the high priest:
14:67 And when she saw Peter warming
himself, she looked upon him, and said, And thou also wast with Jesus
14:68 But he denied, saying, I know not,
neither understand I what thou sayest. And he went out into the porch;
and the cock crew.
14:69 And a maid saw him again, and began
to say to them that stood by, This is one of them.
14:70 And he denied it again. And a little
after, they that stood by said again to Peter, Surely thou art one of
them: for thou art a Galilaean, and thy speech agreeth thereto.
14:71 But he began to curse and to swear,
saying, I know not this man of whom ye speak.
14:72 And the second time the cock crew.
And Peter called to mind the word that Jesus said unto him, Before the
cock crow twice, thou shalt deny me thrice. And when he thought
thereon, he wept.
15:1 And straightway in the morning the
chief priests held a consultation with the elders and scribes and the
whole council, and bound Jesus, and carried him away, and delivered
him to Pilate.
15:2 And Pilate asked him, Art thou the
King of the Jews? And he answering said unto them, Thou sayest it.
15:3 And the chief priests accused him of
many things: but he answered nothing.
15:4 And Pilate asked him again, saying,
Answerest thou nothing? behold how many things they witness against
15:5 But Jesus yet answered nothing; so
that Pilate marvelled.
15:6 Now at that feast he released unto
them one prisoner, whomsoever they desired.
15:7 And there was one named Barabbas,
which lay bound with them that had made insurrection with him, who had
committed murder in the insurrection.
15:8 And the multitude crying aloud began
to desire him to do as he had ever done unto them.
15:9 But Pilate answered them, saying, Will
ye that I release unto you the King of the Jews?
15:10 For he knew that the chief priests
had delivered him for envy.
15:11 But the chief priests moved the
people, that he should rather release Barabbas unto them.
15:12 And Pilate answered and said again
unto them, What will ye then that I shall do unto him whom ye call the
King of the Jews?
15:13 And they cried out again, Crucify
15:14 Then Pilate said unto them, Why, what
evil hath he done? And they cried out the more exceedingly, Crucify
15:15 And so Pilate, willing to content the
people, released Barabbas unto them, and delivered Jesus, when he had
scourged him, to be crucified.
15:16 And the soldiers led him away into
the hall, called Praetorium; and they call together the whole band.
15:17 And they clothed him with purple, and
platted a crown of thorns, and put it about his head,
15:18 And began to salute him, Hail, King
of the Jews!
15:19 And they smote him on the head with a
reed, and did spit upon him, and bowing their knees worshipped him.
15:20 And when they had mocked him, they
took off the purple from him, and put his own clothes on him, and led
him out to crucify him.
15:21 And they compel one Simon a Cyrenian,
who passed by, coming out of the country, the father of Alexander and
Rufus, to bear his cross.
15:22 And they bring him unto the place
Golgotha, which is, being interpreted, The place of a skull.
15:23 And they gave him to drink wine
mingled with myrrh: but he received it not.
15:24 And when they had crucified him, they
parted his garments, casting lots upon them, what every man should
15:25 And it was the third hour, and they
15:26 And the superscription of his
accusation was written over, THE KING OF THE JEWS.
15:27 And with him they crucify two
thieves; the one on his right hand, and the other on his left.
15:28 And the scripture was fulfilled,
which saith, And he was numbered with the transgressors.
15:29 And they that passed by railed on
him, wagging their heads, and saying, Ah, thou that destroyest the
temple, and buildest it in three days,
15:30 Save thyself, and come down from the
15:31 Likewise also the chief priests
mocking said among themselves with the scribes, He saved others;
himself he cannot save.
15:32 Let Christ the King of Israel descend
now from the cross, that we may see and believe. And they that were
crucified with him reviled him.
15:33 And when the sixth hour was come,
there was darkness over the whole land until the ninth hour.
15:34 And at the ninth hour Jesus cried
with a loud voice, saying, Eloi, Eloi, lama sabachthani? which is,
being interpreted, My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?
15:35 And some of them that stood by, when
they heard it, said, Behold, he calleth Elias.
15:36 And one ran and filled a spunge full
of vinegar, and put it on a reed, and gave him to drink, saying, Let
alone; let us see whether Elias will come to take him down.
15:37 And Jesus cried with a loud voice,
and gave up the ghost.
15:38 And the veil of the temple was rent
in twain from the top to the bottom.
15:39 And when the centurion, which stood
over against him, saw that he so cried out, and gave up the ghost, he
said, Truly this man was the Son of God.
15:40 There were also women looking on afar
off: among whom was Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of James the
less and of Joses, and Salome;
15:41 (Who also, when he was in Galilee,
followed him, and ministered unto him;) and many other women which
came up with him unto Jerusalem.
15:42 And now when the even was come,
because it was the preparation, that is, the day before the sabbath,
15:43 Joseph of Arimathaea, an honourable
counsellor, which also waited for the kingdom of God, came, and went
in boldly unto Pilate, and craved the body of Jesus.
15:44 And Pilate marvelled if he were
already dead: and calling unto him the centurion, he asked him whether
he had been any while dead.
15:45 And when he knew it of the centurion,
he gave the body to Joseph.
15:46 And he bought fine linen, and took
him down, and wrapped him in the linen, and laid him in a sepulchre
which was hewn out of a rock, and rolled a stone unto the door of the
15:47 And Mary Magdalene and Mary the
mother of Joses beheld where he was laid.
16:1 And when the sabbath was past, Mary
Magdalene, and Mary the mother of James, and Salome, had bought sweet
spices, that they might come and anoint him.
16:2 And very early in the morning the
first day of the week, they came unto the sepulchre at the rising of
16:3 And they said among themselves, Who
shall roll us away the stone from the door of the sepulchre?
16:4 And when they looked, they saw that
the stone was rolled away: for it was very great.
16:5 And entering into the sepulchre, they
saw a young man sitting on the right side, clothed in a long white
garment; and they were affrighted.
16:6 And he saith unto them, Be not
affrighted: Ye seek Jesus of Nazareth, which was crucified: he is
risen; he is not here: behold the place where they laid him.
16:7 But go your way, tell his disciples
and Peter that he goeth before you into Galilee: there shall ye see
him, as he said unto you.
16:8 And they went out quickly, and fled
from the sepulchre; for they trembled and were amazed: neither said
they any thing to any man; for they were afraid.
16:9 Now when Jesus was risen early the
first day of the week, he appeared first to Mary Magdalene, out of
whom he had cast seven devils.
16:10 And she went and told them that had
been with him, as they mourned and wept.
16:11 And they, when they had heard that he
was alive, and had been seen of her, believed not.
16:12 After that he appeared in another
form unto two of them, as they walked, and went into the country.
16:13 And they went and told it unto the
residue: neither believed they them.
16:14 Afterward he appeared unto the eleven
as they sat at meat, and upbraided them with their unbelief and
hardness of heart, because they believed not them which had seen him
after he was risen.
16:15 And he said unto them, Go ye into all
the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.
16:16 He that believeth and is baptized
shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned.
16:17 And these signs shall follow them
that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak
with new tongues;
16:18 They shall take up serpents; and if
they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay
hands on the sick, and they shall recover.
16:19 So then after the Lord had spoken
unto them, he was received up into heaven, and sat on the right hand
16:20 And they went forth, and preached
every where, the Lord working with them, and confirming the word with
signs following. Amen.
