12:1 At 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
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 priests?
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?
12:6 But I say unto you, That in 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
12:8 For the Son of man is Lord even of the sabbath day.
12:9 And when he was departed thence, he
went into their synagogue:
12:10 And, behold, there was a man which
had his 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 sabbath days.
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 other.
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 known:
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
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
12:26 And if Satan cast out Satan, he is
divided against himself; how shall then his kingdom stand?
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 you.
12:29 Or else how can one enter into a
strong man's house, and spoil his goods, except he first bind the
strong man? and then he will spoil his house.
12:30 He that is not with me is against me;
and he that gathereth not with me scattereth abroad.
12:31 Wherefore I say unto you, 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.
12:33 Either make the tree good, and his
fruit good; or else make the tree corrupt, and his fruit corrupt: for
the tree is known by his fruit.
12:34 O generation of vipers, how 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 things.
12:36 But I say unto you, That every idle
word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day
12:37 For by thy words thou shalt be
justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned.
12:38 Then certain of the scribes and of
the Pharisees 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 earth.
12:41 The men of Nineveh shall rise in
judgment with this generation, and shall condemn it: because they
repented at the preaching of Jonas; and, behold, a greater than Jonas
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 is here.
12:43 When the unclean spirit is gone out
of a man, he walketh through dry places, seeking rest, and findeth
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
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 brethren?
12:49 And he stretched forth his hand
toward his disciples, and said, Behold my mother and my brethren!
12:50 For whosoever shall do the will of my
Father which is in heaven, the same is my brother, and sister, and
13:1 The 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 sow;
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 away.
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
13:9 Who hath ears to hear, let him hear.
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 hath.
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 perceive:
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 side.
13:20 But he that received the seed into
stony places, the same is he that heareth the word, and anon with joy
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 offended.
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
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 way.
13:26 But when the blade was sprung up, and
brought forth fruit, then appeared the tares also.
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 tares?
13:28 He said unto them, An enemy hath done
this. The servants said unto him, Wilt thou then that we go and gather
13:29 But he said, Nay; lest while ye
gather up the tares, ye root up also the wheat with them.
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 barn.
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 field:
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
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 was leavened.
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
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 man;
13:38 The field is the world; the good seed
are the children of the kingdom; but the tares are the children of the
13:39 The enemy that sowed them is the
devil; the harvest is the end of the world; and the reapers are the
13:40 As therefore the tares are gathered
and burned in the fire; so shall it be in the end of this world.
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 teeth.
13:43 Then shall the righteous shine forth
as the sun in the kingdom of their Father. Who hath ears to hear, let
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 it.
13:47 Again, the kingdom of heaven is like
unto a net, that was cast into the sea, and gathered of every kind:
13:48 Which, when it was full, they drew to
shore, and sat down, and gathered the good into vessels, but cast the
13:49 So shall it be at the end of the
world: the angels shall come forth, and sever the wicked from among
13:50 And shall cast them into the furnace
of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth.
13:51 Jesus saith unto them, Have ye
understood all these things? They say unto him, Yea, Lord.
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
13:55 Is not this the carpenter's son? is
not his mother called Mary? and his brethren, James, and Joses, and
Simon, and Judas?
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 their unbelief.
14:1 At 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
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 cities.
14:14 And Jesus went forth, and saw a great
multitude, and was moved with compassion toward them, and he healed
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 to me.
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 multitude.
14:20 And they did all eat, and were
filled: and they took up of the fragments that remained twelve baskets
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 for fear.
14:27 But straightway Jesus spake unto
them, saying, Be of good cheer; it is I; be not afraid.
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 me.
14:31 And immediately Jesus stretched forth
his hand, and caught him, and said unto him, O thou of little faith,
wherefore didst thou doubt?
14:32 And when they were come into the
ship, the wind ceased.
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
15:1 Then 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 your tradition?
15:4 For God commanded, saying, Honour thy
father and mother: and, He that curseth father or mother, let him die
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
15:9 But in vain they do worship me,
teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.
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
15:12 Then came his disciples, and said
unto him, Knowest thou that the Pharisees were offended, after they
heard this saying?
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
15:15 Then answered Peter and said unto
him, Declare unto us this parable.
15:16 And Jesus said, Are ye also yet
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 witness,
15:20 These are the things which defile a
man: but to eat with unwashen hands defileth not a man.
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
15:23 But he answered her not a word. And
his disciples came and besought him, saying, Send her away; for she
crieth after us.
15:24 But he answered and said, I am not
sent but unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel.
15:25 Then came she and worshipped him,
saying, Lord, help me.
15:26 But he answered and said, It is not
meet to take the children's bread, and to cast it to dogs.
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 there.
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 them:
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 Israel.
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 multitude?
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 ground.
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
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.
16:1 The Pharisees also with the Sadducees
came, and tempting desired him that he would shew them a sign from
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 lowering. O ye hypocrites, ye
can discern the face of the sky; but can ye not discern the signs of
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
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 Sadducees?
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 Barjona: for flesh and blood hath not revealed
it unto thee, but my Father which is in heaven.
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
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.
17:1 And after six days Jesus taketh Peter,
James, and John his brother, and bringeth them up into an high
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
17:5 While he yet spake, behold, a bright
cloud overshadowed them: and behold a voice out of the cloud, which
said, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased; hear ye him.
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 dead.
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 all things.
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
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 me.
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
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
17:23 And they shall kill him, and the
third day he shall be raised again. And they were exceeding sorry.
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 strangers?
17:26 Peter saith unto him, Of strangers.
Jesus saith unto him, Then are the children free.
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, and give unto them for me and
18:1 At 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
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 fire.
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 astray.
18:14 Even so it is not the will of your
Father which is in heaven, that one of these little ones should
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 brother.
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 established.
18:17 And if he shall neglect to hear them,
tell it unto the church: but if he neglect to hear the church, let him
be unto thee as an heathen man and a publican.
18:18 Verily I say unto you, Whatsoever ye
shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever ye shall
loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.
18:19 Again I say unto you, That 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 in heaven.
18:20 For where two or three are gathered
together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.
18:21 Then came Peter to him, and said,
Lord, how oft shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? till
18:22 Jesus saith unto him, I say not unto
thee, Until seven times: but, Until seventy times seven.
18:23 Therefore is the kingdom of heaven
likened unto a certain king, which would take account of his servants.
18:24 And when he had begun to reckon, one
was brought unto him, which owed him ten thousand talents.
18:25 But forasmuch as he had not to pay,
his lord commanded him to be sold, and his wife, and children, and all
that he had, and payment to be made.
18:26 The servant therefore fell down, and
worshipped him, saying, Lord, have patience with me, and I will pay
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 fellowservants, which owed him an hundred pence: and
he laid hands on him, and took him by the throat, saying, Pay me that
18:29 And his fellowservant 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 debt.
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 thee?
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.
19:1 And 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 them there.
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
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 receive it.
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
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 commandments.
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 witness,
19:19 Honour thy father and thy mother:
and, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.
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
19:27 Then answered Peter and said unto
him, Behold, we have forsaken all, and followed thee; what shall we
19:28 And Jesus said unto them, Verily I
say unto you, That ye which have followed me, in the regeneration when
the Son of man shall sit in the throne of his glory, ye also shall sit
upon twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel.
19:29 And every one that hath forsaken
houses, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or
children, or lands, for my name's sake, shall receive an hundredfold,
and shall inherit everlasting life.
19:30 But many that are first shall be
last; and the last shall be first.
20:1 For the 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.
20:2 And when he had agreed with the labourers for a penny a day, he sent them into his vineyard.
20:3 And he went out about the third hour,
and saw others standing idle in the marketplace,
20:4 And said unto them; Go ye also into
the vineyard, and whatsoever is right I will give you. And they went
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 receive.
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 house,
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
20:14 Take that thine is, and go thy way: I
will give unto this last, even as unto thee.
20:15 Is it not lawful for me to do what I
will with mine own? Is thine eye evil, because I am good?
20:16 So the last shall be first, and the
first last: for many be called, but few chosen.
20:17 And Jesus going up to Jerusalem took
the twelve disciples apart in the way, and said unto them,
20:18 Behold, we go up to Jerusalem; and
the Son of man shall be betrayed unto the chief priests and unto the
scribes, and they shall condemn him to death,
20:19 And shall deliver him to the Gentiles
to mock, and to scourge, and to crucify him: and the third day he
shall rise again.
20:20 Then came to him the mother of
Zebedees children 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 able.
20:23 And he saith unto them, Ye 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
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 minister;
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
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.
20:32 And Jesus stood still, and called
them, and said, What will ye that I shall do unto you?
20:33 They say unto him, Lord, that our
eyes may be opened.
20:34 So Jesus had compassion on them, and
touched their eyes: and immediately their eyes received sight, and
they followed him.
21:1 And when they drew nigh unto
Jerusalem, and were come to Bethphage, unto the mount of Olives, then
sent Jesus two disciples,
21:2 Saying unto them, Go into the 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 ought unto you, ye
shall say, The Lord hath need of them; and straightway he will send
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 them,
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 the highest.
21:10 And when he was come into Jerusalem,
all the city was moved, saying, Who is this?
21:11 And the multitude said, This is Jesus
the prophet of Nazareth of Galilee.
21:12 And Jesus went into the temple of
God, and cast out all them that sold and bought in the temple, and
overthrew the tables of the moneychangers, and the seats of them that
21:13 And said unto them, It is written, My
house shall be called the house of prayer; but ye have made it a den
21:14 And the blind and the lame came to
him in the 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
21:16 And said unto him, Hearest thou what
these say? And Jesus saith unto them, Yea; have ye never read, Out of
the mouth of babes and sucklings thou hast perfected praise?
21:17 And he left them, and went out of the
city into Bethany; and he lodged there.
21:18 Now in the morning as he returned
into the city, he hungered.
21:19 And when he saw a fig tree in the
way, he came to 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 withered away.
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 done.
21:22 And all things, whatsoever ye shall
ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive.
21:23 And when he was come into the temple,
the chief priests and the elders of the people came unto him as he was
teaching, and said, By what authority doest thou these things? and who
gave thee this authority?
21:24 And Jesus answered and said unto
them, I also will ask you one thing, which if ye tell me, I in like
wise will tell you by what authority I do these things.
21:25 The baptism of John, whence 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
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
21:29 He answered and said, I will not: but
afterward he repented, and went.
21:30 And he came to the second, and said
likewise. And he answered and said, I go, sir: and went not.
21:31 Whether of them twain did 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.
21:32 For John came unto you in the way of
righteousness, and ye believed him not: but the publicans and the
harlots believed him: and ye, when ye had seen it, repented not
afterward, that ye might believe him.
21:33 Hear another parable: There 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 country:
21:34 And when the time of the 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 another.
21:36 Again, he sent other servants more
than the first: and they did unto them likewise.
21:37 But last of all he sent unto 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 inheritance.
21:39 And they caught him, and cast him out
of the vineyard, and slew him.
21:40 When the lord therefore of the
vineyard cometh, what will he do unto those husbandmen?
21:41 They say unto him, He will miserably
destroy those wicked men, and will let out his vineyard unto other
husbandmen, which shall render him the fruits in their seasons.
21:42 Jesus saith unto them, Did 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
21:46 But when they sought to lay hands on
him, they feared the multitude, because they took him for a prophet.
