Luke 19

Great(i) 1 And he entred in, & went thorow Hierico. 2 And behold, ther was a man named Zacheus, whych was a ruler amonge the Publicans, and was ryche also. 3 And he sought meanes to se Iesus, what he shuld be: and coulde not for the preace, because he was lytle of stature. 4 And he ran before, and clymed vp into a wylde fygge tree, to se him: for he was to come that waye. 5 And when Iesus cam to the place, he looked vp, and sawe hym, and sayd vnto him: Zache, come downe atonce, for to daye I must abyde at thy house. 6 And he came downe hastelye, and receaued hym ioyfully. 7 And when they sawe it, they all grudged, sayinge: He is gone in to tary with a man that is a synner. 8 And Zache stode forth, and sayd vnto the Lorde: beholde Lorde, the halfe of my goodes I geue to the poore: and yf I haue done eny man wronge, I restore him foure folde. 9 Iesus sayde vnto him: this daye is health happened vnto thys house, because that he also is become the chylde of Abraham: 10 For the sonne of man is come to seke, and to saue that whych was loste. 11 As they hearde these thynges, he added therto a parable, because he was nye to Ierusalem, and because they thought, that the kyngdome of God shulde shortly appeare. 12 He sayde therfore: a certayne noble man went into a farre countre, to receaue hym a kyngdome, and to come agayne. 13 And he called hys ten seruauntes, and delyuered them ten pounde, sayinge vnto them: Occupye, tyll I come. 14 But hys cytesens hated hym, & sent a message after him, sayinge: we will not haue thys man to raygne ouer vs. 15 And it came to passe, that when he had receaued his kingdome, he returned, & commaunded these seruauntes to be called vnto hym (to whom he had geuen the money) to wete how moch euery man had done. 16 Then came the fyrst, saying: Lorde, thy pounde hath gayned ten pounde. 17 And he sayd vnto hym: Well thou good seruaunt: because thou hast bene faythfull in a very lytell thynge, haue thou auctoryte ouer ten cyties. 18 And another came, sayinge: Lorde, thy pounde hath made fyue pounde. 19 And to the same he sayde: be thou also ruler ouer fyue cyties. 20 And another came, saying: Lorde, beholde here is thy pounde, whych I haue kepte in a napkyn: 21 for I feared the, because thou art a strayte man: thou takest vp that thou laydest not downe, and reapest that thou dyddest not sowe. 22 He sayeth vnto hym: Of thyne awne mouth, wyll I iugde the, thou euyll seruaunt. Knewest thou that I am a strayte man, takynge vp that I layde not downe, & reapynge that I dyd not sowe? 23 And wherfore gauest not thou my money into the banke, and at my commynge I myght haue required myne awne wyth vauntage? 24 And he sayd vnto them that stode by, take from hym that pounde, and geue it hym that hath ten pounde. 25 And they sayde vnto hym: Lorde, he hath ten pounde. 26 For I saye vnto you, that vnto euery one which hath, shalbe geuen & from him that hath not shalbe taken awaye, euen that whych he hath. 27 Moreouer, those myne enemyes, (whych wolde not that I shuld raygne ouer them) brynge hyther, and slee them before me. 28 And when he had thus spoken, he proceaded forth, takynge hys iourney, to go vp to Ierusalem. 29 And it fortuned, when he was come nye to Bethphage & Bethany, besydes the mounte whych is called Olyuete, he sent two of hys discyples 30 sayinge: go ye into the towne, which is ouer agaynst you: Into the whych assone as ye are come, ye shall fynde an asses coltetyed, wheron yet neuer man sate. Loose him, and bringe hym hyther. 31 And yf eny man aske you, why do ye loose him? thus shall ye saye vnto hym: the Lorde hath nede therof. 32 They that were sent, went their waye, and founde, euen as he had sayd vnto them. 33 And as they were a lossynge the colte, the owners therof sayd vnto them, why loose ye the colte? 34 And they sayde: for the Lorde hath nede of hym. 35 And they brought him to Iesus, and cast their rayment on the colte, and sett Iesus theron. 36 And as he went, they spredde theyr clothes in the waye. 37 And when he was now come nye to hye goyng downe of the mounte Olyuete, the whole multitude of the discyples began to reioyce, & to prayse God with a loude voyce, for all the myracles that they had sene, 38 sayinge: blessed be the kynge that commeth in the name of the Lorde: peace in heauen, and glory in the hyest: 39 And some of the Pharyses of the company sayd vnto hym: Master, rebuke the disciples. 40 He sayd vnto them: I tell you, that yf these holde theyr peace, then shall the stones crye. 41 And when he was come neare, he behelde the cytie, and wept on it, 42 sayinge: If thou haddest knowen those thynges whych belonge vnto thy peace, euen in thys thy daye, thou woldst take hede. But now are they hydde from thyne eyes. 43 For the dayes shall come vpon the, that thy enemyes also shall cast a banke aboute the, and compasse the rounde, and kepe the in on euery syde, 44 and make the euen wyth the grounde, and thy chyldren which are in the. And they shall not leaue in the one stone vpon another, because thou knowest not the tyme of thy visitacyon. 45 And he went into the temple, and beganne to cast out them that solde therin, and them that bought, 46 sayinge vnto them: It is written: my house is the house of prayer: but ye haue made it a den of theues: 47 And he taught dayly in the temple. But the hye Prestes & the scrybes and the chefe of the people went aboute to destroye hym: 48 & coulde not fynde what to do. For all the people stacke by hym, whan they hearde hym.
