1 G1996 In the mean time, when there were gathered G1996 together G3461 an innumerable G3461 multitude G3793 of people, G5620 so G2662 that they stepped G240 one G240 on another, G756 he began G3004 to say G3101 to his disciples G4412 first G4337 of all, Beware G2219 you of the leaven G5330 of the Pharisees, G3748 which G5272 is hypocrisy.
2 G3762 For there is nothing G4780 covered, G601 that shall not be revealed; G2927 neither hid, G1097 that shall not be known.
3 G473 Therefore G5607 G3745 whatever G2036 you have spoken G4655 in darkness G191 shall be heard G5457 in the light; G3739 and that which G2980 you have spoken G3775 in the ear G5009 in closets G2784 shall be proclaimed G1430 on the housetops.
4 G3004 And I say G5384 to you my friends, G5399 Be not afraid G615 of them that kill G4983 the body, G3326 and after G2192 that have G3365 no G5100 G4055 more G1410 that they can G4160 do.
5 G5263 But I will forewarn G5101 you whom G5399 you shall fear: G5399 Fear G3326 him, which after G615 he has killed G2192 has G1849 power G1685 to cast G1519 into G1067 hell; G3483 yes, G3004 I say G5399 to you, Fear him.
6 G4002 Are not five G4765 sparrows G4453 sold G1417 for two G787 farthings, G1520 and not one G1950 of them is forgotten G1799 before G2316 God?
7 G2532 But even G2532 the very G2359 hairs G5216 of your G2776 head G3956 are all G705 numbered. G5399 Fear G3767 not therefore: G1308 you are of more G1308 value G4183 than many G4765 sparrows.
8 G1161 Also G3004 I say G3956 to you, Whoever G3670 shall confess G1715 me before G444 men, G5207 him shall the Son G444 of man G2532 also G3670 confess G1715 before G32 the angels G2316 of God:
9 G720 But he that denies G1799 me before G444 men G533 shall be denied G1799 before G32 the angels G2316 of God.
10 G3956 And whoever G3739 G2046 shall speak G3056 a word G1519 against G5207 the Son G444 of man, G863 it shall be forgiven G987 him: but to him that blasphemes G1519 against G40 the Holy G4151 Ghost G863 it shall not be forgiven.
11 G3752 And when G4374 they bring G4864 you to the synagogues, G746 and to magistrates, G1849 and powers, G3361 take you no G3309 thought G4459 how G2228 or G5101 what G626 thing you shall answer, G2228 or G5101 what G2036 you shall say:
12 G40 For the Holy G4151 Ghost G1321 shall teach G846 you in the same G5610 hour G3739 what G1163 you ought G2036 to say.
13 G5100 And one G3793 of the company G2036 said G1320 to him, Master, G2036 speak G80 to my brother, G3307 that he divide G2817 the inheritance with me.
14 G2036 And he said G444 to him, Man, G5101 who G2525 made G1348 me a judge G2228 or G3312 a divider G1909 over you?
15 G2036 And he said G3708 to them, Take heed, G5442 and beware G4124 of covetousness: G5100 for a man’s G2222 life G2076 consists G4052 not in the abundance G5224 of the things which he possesses.
16 G2036 And he spoke G3850 a parable G3004 to them, saying, G5561 The ground G5100 of a certain G4145 rich G444 man G2164 brought G2164 forth G2164 plentifully:
17 G1260 And he thought G1722 within G1438 himself, G3004 saying, G5101 What G4160 shall I do, G3754 because G2192 I have G3756 no G4226 room where G4863 to bestow G2590 my fruits?
18 G2036 And he said, G5124 This G4160 will I do: G2507 I will pull G2507 down G596 my barns, G3618 and build G3187 greater; G1563 and there G4863 will I bestow G3956 all G1081 my fruits G18 and my goods.
19 G2046 And I will say G5590 to my soul, G5590 Soul, G2192 you have G4183 much G18 goods G2749 laid G4183 up for many G2094 years; G373 take your ease, G5315 eat, G4095 drink, G2165 and be merry.
20 G2316 But God G2036 said G878 to him, You fool, G5026 this G3571 night G5590 your soul G523 shall be required G1161 of you: then G5101 whose G3739 shall those things be, which G2090 you have provided?
21 G3779 So G2343 is he that lays up treasure G1438 for himself, G4147 and is not rich G1519 toward G2316 God.
22 G2036 And he said G3101 to his disciples, G1223 Therefore G5124 G3004 I say G3361 to you, Take no G3309 thought G5216 for your G5590 life, G5101 what G5315 you shall eat; G3366 neither G4983 for the body, G5101 what G1746 you shall put G1746 on.
24 G2657 Consider G2876 the ravens: G3756 for they neither G4687 sow G3761 nor G2325 reap; G3739 which G3756 neither G2076 have G5009 storehouse G3761 nor G596 barn; G2316 and God G5142 feeds G4214 them: how G4214 much G3123 more G1308 are you better G4071 than the fowls?
25 G5101 And which G3309 of you with taking thought G1410 can G4369 add G2244 to his stature G1520 one G4083 cubit?
26 G1487 If G3767 you then G1410 be not able G1646 to do that thing which is least, G5101 why G3309 take you thought G3062 for the rest?
27 G2657 Consider G2918 the lilies G4459 how G837 they grow: G2872 they toil G3514 not, they spin G3004 not; and yet I say G4672 to you, that Solomon G3956 in all G1391 his glory G4016 was not arrayed G5613 like G1520 one G5130 of these.
28 G1487 If G1161 then G2316 God G3779 so G294 clothe G5528 the grass, G4594 which is to day G68 in the field, G839 and to morrow G906 is cast G1519 into G2823 the oven; G4214 how G4214 much G3123 more G3640 will he clothe you, O you of little G3640 faith?
29 G2212 And seek G5101 not you what G5315 you shall eat, G2228 or G5101 what G4095 you shall drink, G3361 neither G3349 be you of doubtful mind.
30 G3956 For all G5023 these G1484 things do the nations G2889 of the world G1934 seek G1934 after: G5216 and your G3962 Father G1492 knows G5535 that you have need G5130 of these things.
31 G4133 But rather G2212 seek G932 you the kingdom G2316 of God; G3956 and all G5023 these G4369 things shall be added to you.
32 G5399 Fear G3398 not, little G4168 flock; G5216 for it is your G3962 Father’s G2106 good pleasure G1325 to give G932 you the kingdom.
33 G4453 Sell G5224 that you have, G1325 and give G1654 alms; G4160 provide G1438 yourselves G905 bags G3822 which wax G3822 not old, G2344 a treasure G3772 in the heavens G413 that fails G3699 not, where G3756 no G2812 thief G1448 approaches, G3761 neither G4597 moth G1311 corrupts.
34 G3699 For where G5216 your G2344 treasure G1563 is, there G5216 will your G2588 heart G2532 be also.
35 G5216 Let your G3751 loins G4024 be girded G4024 about, G3588 and your G3088 lights G2545 burning;
36 G3664 And you yourselves like G444 to men G4327 that wait G2962 for their lord, G4218 when G360 he will return G1062 from the wedding; G2064 that when he comes G2925 and knocks, G455 they may open G2112 to him immediately.
37 G3107 Blessed G1565 are those G1401 servants, G3739 whom G2962 the lord G2064 when he comes G2147 shall find G1127 watching: G281 truly G3004 I say G4024 to you, that he shall gird G347 himself, and make G347 them to sit G347 down G3928 to meat, and will come G3928 forth G1247 and serve them.
38 G1437 And if G2064 he shall come G1208 in the second G5438 watch, G2532 or G2064 come G5154 in the third G5438 watch, G2147 and find G3779 them so, G3107 blessed G1565 are those G1401 servants.
39 G5124 And this G1097 know, G1487 that if G3611 the manager G3617 of the house G1492 had known G4169 what G5610 hour G2812 the thief G2064 would come, G1127 he would have watched, G863 and not have suffered G3624 his house G1358 to be broken G1358 through.
40 G3767 Be you therefore G2092 ready G2532 also: G5207 for the Son G444 of man G2064 comes G5610 at an hour G1380 when you think not.
41 G1161 Then G4074 Peter G2036 said G2962 to him, Lord, G3004 speak G5026 you this G3850 parable G2228 to us, or G2532 even G3956 to all?
42 G2962 And the Lord G2036 said, G5101 Who G686 then G4103 is that faithful G5429 and wise G3623 steward, G3739 whom G2962 his lord G2525 shall make G2525 ruler G1909 over G2322 his household, G1325 to give G4620 them their portion G4620 of meat G2540 in due season?
43 G3107 Blessed G1401 is that servant, G3739 whom G2962 his lord G2064 when he comes G2147 shall find G3779 so G4160 doing.
44 G230 Of a truth G3004 I say G2525 to you, that he will make G2525 him ruler G1909 over G3956 all G5224 that he has.
45 G1437 But and if G1401 that servant G2036 say G2588 in his heart, G2962 My lord G5549 delays G2064 his coming; G756 and shall begin G5180 to beat G3816 the menservants G3814 and maidens, G2068 and to eat G4095 and drink, G3182 and to be drunken;
46 G2962 The lord G1401 of that servant G2240 will come G2250 in a day G4328 when he looks G1722 not for him, and at G5610 an hour G1097 when he is not aware, G1371 and will cut G5087 him in sunder, and will appoint G3313 him his portion G571 with the unbelievers.
47 G1401 And that servant, G3588 which G1097 knew G2962 his lord’s G2307 will, G2090 and prepared G3366 not himself, neither G4160 did G4314 according G2307 to his will, G1194 shall be beaten G4183 with many stripes.
48 G1097 But he that knew G4160 not, and did commit G514 things worthy G4127 of stripes, G1194 shall be beaten G3641 with few G4127 stripes. G3956 For to whomsoever G3739 G4183 much G1325 is given, G4183 of him shall be much G2212 required: G3739 and to whom G3908 men have committed G4183 much, G154 of him they will ask G4055 the more.
49 G2064 I am come G906 to send G4442 fire G1519 on G1093 the earth; G5101 and what G2309 will G1487 I, if G2235 it be already G381 kindled?
50 G2192 But I have G908 a baptism G907 to be baptized G4459 with; and how G4912 am I straitened G2193 till G5055 it be accomplished!
51 G1380 Suppose G3854 you that I am come G1325 to give G1515 peace G1722 on G1093 earth? G3004 I tell G3780 you, No; G2228 but rather G1267 division:
52 G3568 For from now on G4002 there shall be five G1520 in one G3624 house G1266 divided, G5140 three G1909 against G1417 two, G1417 and two G1909 against G5140 three.
53 G3962 The father G1266 shall be divided G1909 against G5207 the son, G5207 and the son G1909 against G3962 the father; G3384 the mother G1909 against G2364 the daughter, G2364 and the daughter G1909 against G3384 the mother; G3994 the mother G3994 in law G1909 against G3565 her daughter G3565 in law, G3565 and the daughter G3565 in law G1909 against G3994 her mother G3994 in law.
54 G3004 And he said G2532 also G3793 to the people, G3752 When G1492 you see G3507 a cloud G393 rise G1424 out of the west, G2112 straightway G3004 you say, G2064 There comes G3655 a shower; G3779 and so it is.
55 G3753 And when G3558 you see the south G4154 wind blow, G3004 you say, G2742 There will be heat; G1096 and it comes to pass.
56 G5273 You hypocrites, G1492 you can G1381 discern G4383 the face G3772 of the sky G1093 and of the earth; G4459 but how G5126 is it that you do not discern this G2540 time?
58 G5613 When G5217 you go G4675 with your G476 adversary G758 to the magistrate, G3598 as you are in the way, G1325 give G2039 diligence G525 that you may be delivered G3379 from him; lest G2694 he hale G2923 you to the judge, G2923 and the judge G3860 deliver G4233 you to the officer, G4233 and the officer G906 cast G1519 you into G5438 prison.
