8 FINALLY, my brethren, those (things) which are true, and those which are honest, and those which are just, and those which are pure, and those which are lovely, and those which are laudable, and those (which are) works of praise and of celebration, these consider.
Bible verses about "womanizer" | Etheridge
1 Be therefore imitators of Aloha, as beloved children; 2 and walk in love, as the Meshiha also loved us, and delivered himself for us, an offering and a sacrifice to Aloha of a fragrant smell. 3 BUT fornication and all uncleanness and covetousness, let them not be even heard among you, as it becometh the saints; 4 neither filthiness, nor words of folly, or of jeering, or fables, which are not necessary, but, instead of these, thanksgiving. 5 But this know, that any man who is a fornicator, or impure, or covetous, or an idolater, hath no inheritance in the kingdom of the Meshiha and of Aloha; 6 lest any man deceive you with vain words; for because of these cometh the anger of Aloha upon the sons of disobedience. 7 Be not, therefore, participators with them. 8 For you were before darkness, but now you are light in our Lord. As the sons of light, then, so walk. 9 For the fruits of the light are in all goodness and rectitude and truth. 10 And be discerning of that which is good before our Lord. 11 And have no communion with the works of darkness, which have no fruits, but reprove them. 12 For that which in secrecy they do it is execrable even to mention. 13 For every thing is exposed by the light, and is revealed, and whatever revealeth is light. 14 Wherefore it is said, Awake thou who sleepest, and arise from the dead, and the Meshiha shall enlighten thee. 15 See then that you walk vigilantly, not as fools, 16 but as the wise who redeem their opportunity, because the days are evil. 17 On account of this, be not wanting in mind, but understand what is the will of Aloha. 18 And be not drunk with wine, in which is intemperance, but be filled with the Spirit. 19 And discourse with yourselves with psalms and with hymns and with songs of the Spirit, singing with your hearts unto the Lord. 20 And give thanks always on behalf of every man in the name of our Lord Jeshu Meshiha unto Aloha the Father. 21 And be subject one to another in the love of the Meshiha. 22 WIVES, be subject to your husbands as to our Lord. 23 For the husband is the head of the wife, as the Meshiha is the head of the church, and he himself is the Saviour of the body. 24 But as the church is subject to Meshiha, so also (should) wives be unto their husbands in every thing. 25 Husbands, love your wives, as also the Meshiha loved his church, and gave himself for her, 26 that he might sanctify her and purify her in the laver of waters and by the word, 27 and that he might constitute her a church unto himself, being glorified, and not having blemish or wrinkle or any thing like these; but to be holy and spotless. 28 So it becometh husbands to love their wives, as their own bodies. For he who his wife loveth, himself he loveth. 29 For no man ever hated his own body, but nourisheth it, and taketh care of it; so also the Meshiha (taketh care) of the church. 30 For we are members of his body, and of his flesh are we, and of his bones. 31 Because of this a man leaveth his father and his mother, and cleaveth unto his wife, and they two become one flesh. 32 This mystery is great; but I speak of the Meshiha and of his church. 33 Nevertheless let every one of you so love his wife as his own self; but let the wife reverence her husband.
9 Or, know you not that the unjust the kingdom of Aloha cannot inherit? Do not err; neither fornicators, nor the servers of idols, nor adulterers, nor corrupters, nor liers with men, 10 nor the oppressive, nor thieves, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor the rapacious, the kingdom of Aloha can inherit. 11 And these were some of you but you are washed, and sanctified, and justified in the name of our Lord Jeshu Meshiha, and by the Spirit of our God.
28 But I say to you, that every one who beholdeth a woman so as that he shall desire her, already committeth adultery in his heart. 29 But if thy right eye cause thee to offend, root it out and cast it from thee: it is better to thee that one of thy members should perish, than that thy whole body should fall into gihano. 30 And if thy right hand cause thee to offend, cut it off and cast it from thee; for it is better to thee that one from thy members should perish, rather than thy whole body should fall into gihano. 31 It hath been said, that he who looseth his wife should give her a writing of divorcement. 32 But I say unto you, that whosoever looseth his wife, except on account of fornication, maketh her to commit adultery; and whosoever taketh her who is sent away, committeth adultery. 33 Again, you have heard it was said to those beforetime, Thou shalt not lie in thine oaths, but shalt fulfil thine oaths unto the Lord. 34 But I say unto you, Swear not at all: not by heaven, for it is the throne of Aloha; 35 nor by earth, for it is the foot-stool beneath his feet; neither by Urishlem, for it is the city of the great king. 36 Neither shalt thou swear by thy head, for thou canst not make a single hair in it either black or white. 37 But let your discourse be, Yea, yea; Nay, nay; for whatsoever is more than these is from the evil. 38 You have heard that it hath been said, An eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth. 39 But I say unto you, that you shall not rise up against evil: but if any one strike thee on the right cheek, turn to him the other also. 40 And if any one will contend with thee to take away thy tunic, leave him thy mantle also; 41 and if a man compel thee one mile, go with him twain. 42 Give to him who asketh from thee, and him who would borrow from thee refuse not. 43 You have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbour, and hate thine enemy. [Master of enmity.] 44 But I say unto you, Love your enemies; bless them who execrate you; do that which is good to him who hateth you; and pray for them who lead you with a chain, and persecute you. 45 That you may be the children of your Father who is in heaven, who causeth his sun to arise on the good and on the evil, and who sendeth showers on the just and on the unjust. 46 For if you love those (only) who love you, what reward have you? do not even the tribute-gatherers this? 47 And if you wish peace to your brethren only, what more do you than they? do not also the tribute-gatherers this? 48 Be ye therefore perfect, as your Father who is in heaven is perfect!
1 SEE that in your almsgiving you do it not before men, so as that you may be observed by them; otherwise no reward is for you with your Father who is in heaven. 2 When, therefore, thou art doing alms, sound not a trumpet before thee, as do the assumers of faces in the assemblies and streets, so that they may be praised from men; and, Amen I say to you, they receive their reward. 3 But thou, when thou art doing thy alms, let not thy left hand know what thy right hand doeth, 4 that thine alms may be in secret; and thy Father, who seeth in secret, shall recompense thee in openness. 5 And when thou prayest, be not as the face-takers, who love to stand in the assemblies and at the corners of the streets to pray, that they may be seen of men; [The sons of men] and truly I say to you that they receive their reward. 6 But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy secret chamber, and shut thy door, and pray to thy Father who is in secret; and thy Father, who seeth in secret, shall reward thee in openness. 7 And when thou art praying, be not wordy, like the profane; for they think that in much speaking they are heard. 8 Be you not like them, for your Father knoweth what is needful for you before that you ask him. 9 Thus pray: Our Father who art in the heavens! be sanctified thy Name. 10 Come thy kingdom. Be done thy will, as in heaven, also in earth. 11 Give to us the bread of our need to-day; 12 and forgive us our debts, as also we forgive our debtors; 13 and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil. For thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory to the age of ages. 14 For if you forgive men their trespasses, your Father who is in heaven will forgive you also. 15 But if you will not forgive men, your Father also forgiveth not your trespasses unto you. 16 WHEN, too, you fast, be not morosely sad as the assumers of faces, for they defile their countenances so as that they may appear unto men to fast: and, Amen I say unto you, they receive their reward. 17 But thou, when thou art fasting, wash thy face and anoint thine head, 18 that it may not appear to men that thou art fasting, but to thy Father who is in secret; and thy Father who seeth in secret, he shall reward thee. 19 Lay not up for yourselves treasures in the earth, a place where moth and rust corrupt, and where thieves dig through and steal: 20 but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where no moth and no rust corrupt, and where thieves do not dig through and steal. 21 For where your treasure is, there also your hearts are. 22 The lamp of the body is the eye: if thine eye therefore be perfect, thy whole body will be illuminated; 23 but if thine eye be evil, thy whole body will be dark. If therefore the light that is in thee be darkness, what will thy darkness be? 24 No man can serve two lords; for the one he will hate, and the other he will love, or the one he will honour, and the other he will neglect: you cannot serve Aloha and riches. 25 WHEREFORE I say unto you, Let not your souls be anxious what you shall eat and what you shall drink, and for your bodies what you shall wear. Is not the life more excellent than food, and the body than raiment? 26 Behold the fowls of the heaven; they sow not, neither do they reap, nor collect into granaries; yet your Father who is in heaven nourisheth them: are you not far more considerable than they? 27 But who among you by being anxious can add to his stature one cubit? 28 and concerning raiment why are you anxious? Look upon the lilies of the wilderness how they increase; they toil not, neither do they spin. 29 Yet I say to you, Not even Shelemun in all his glory was covered like one from among these. 30 But if the herb of the field, which to-day exists, and tomorrow falleth into the oven, Aloha thus clotheth, how much more you, little of faith? 31 Be not anxious, therefore, nor say, What shall we eat, or, What shall we drink, or, How shall we be covered? 32 For after all these things do the people of the world inquire: but your Father who is in heaven knoweth that also by you are required these all. 33 But seek first the kingdom of Aloha and his righteousness, and all these shall be added unto you. 34 Be not therefore anxious for to-morrow; the morrow shall care for its own: the evil of to-day is enough for it.
1 JUDGE not, that you be not judged. 2 For with the judgment that you judge, you shall be judged; and with the measure that you mete, it shall be measured to you. 3 But why dost thou look at the rod that is in thy brother's eye, while the rafter that is in thine own eye thou dost not consider? 4 Or how sayest thou to thy brother, Permit that I draw forth the rod from thine eye, and, behold, there is a rafter in thine own eye? 5 Hypocrite! draw forth first the rafter from thine own eye, and then thou wilt see to draw forth the rod from thy brother's eye. 6 Give not the holy unto dogs, and throw not your precious stones before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn again and rend you. 7 Ask, and it shall be given to you; seek, and you shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you. 8 For every one who asketh receiveth, and he who seeketh findeth; and to him who knocketh it is opened. 9 Or what man from among you, who if his son shall ask bread, will reach forth a stone to him? 10 Or if a fish he shall ask of him, a serpent will he reach forth to him? 11 If, therefore, you who are evil know to give good gifts unto your children, how much more shall your Father who is in heaven give good things to those who ask him? 12 All therefore that you will that men shall do unto you, so also do you unto them: for this is the law and the prophets. 13 ENTER in at the narrow gate: for wide is the gate, and spacious the way, that conducteth to destruction; and they are many who go therein. 14 How small is the gate, and narrow the way, that leadeth unto salvation; and they are few who find it! 15 Beware of false prophets, who come to you in the clothing of sheep, but within are ravening wolves. 16 By their fruits you shall know them. Do they gather from thorns grapes, or from briers figs? 17 So every good tree maketh good fruits; but an evil tree maketh evil fruits. 18 A good tree cannot make evil fruits, nor an evil tree make good fruits. 19 Every tree that maketh not good fruits is cut down, and falleth into the fire. 20 Wherefore by their fruits you shall know them. 21 Not every one that saith to me, My Lord, my Lord, entereth into the kingdom of heaven; but he who doeth the will of my Father who is in heaven. 22 Multitudes will say to me in that day My Lord, my Lord, in thy name have we not prophesied, and in thy name ejected devils, and in thy name performed many mighty works? 23 And then will I confess to them, I never knew you; go far from me, ye workers of iniquity. 24 Every one therefore who heareth these my words, and doeth them, shall be likened to a wise man, who built his house upon a rock. 25 And the rain descended, and the torrents came, and the winds blew, and rushed against that house, but it fell not, for its foundations were placed upon the rock. 26 And every one who heareth these my words, and doeth them not, shall be likened to a man who built his house upon sand. 27 And the rain descended, and the torrents came, and the winds blew, and rushed against that house, and it fell, and the ruin of it was great. 28 And when Jeshu had finished these words, the multitudes wondered at his doctrine. 29 For he taught them as one having power, and not as their scribes and the Pharishee.
1 WHEN he had descended from the mountain, great multitudes clave to him. 2 And, behold, a certain leper came (and) worshipped him, and said, My Lord, if thou art willing, thou canst cleanse me. 3 And Jeshu extended his hand, and touched him, and said, I am willing: be clean; and in that very hour his leprosy was cleansed. 4 And Jeshu said to him, See that thou tell no man, but go, show thyself to the priests, and offer the oblation that Musha required for their testimony. 5 Then when Jeshu had entered into Kapharnachum, a certain centurion approached him, and besought of him, 6 saying, My Lord, my child is lying in the house, paralysed and grievously tormented. 7 Jeshu saith to him, I will come and heal him. 8 The centurion answered and saith, My Lord, I am not worthy that thou shouldst come beneath my roof; [Shadow] only speak in a word, and my child shall be healed. 9 For I also am a man under authority, and under my hand there are soldiers. I say to this one, Go, and he goeth; and to the other, Come, and he cometh; and to my servant, Do this, and he doeth. 10 When Jeshu heard this, he was moved with admiration, and said to those with him, Truly I say to you, that in Isroel I have not found faith like this. 11 But I tell you, That many shall come from the east, and from the west, and shall recline with Abraham, and Is'hok, and Jakub, in the kingdom of the heavens; 12 but the children of the kingdom shall go forth into outer darknesses; there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth. 13 And Jeshu said unto the centurion, Go; as thou hast believed, it shall be to thee. And his child was healed in that very hour. 14 AND Jeshu came to the house of Shemun, and saw his mother-in-law lying, a fever having seized her. 15 And he touched her with his hand, and the fever left her; and she arose and ministered to them. 16 And when it was evening, they brought before him many demoniacs, and he cast out their devils by a word; and all those who were heavily afflicted he healed. 17 So was fulfilled what had been spoken by the prophet Eshaia, who said, That he should take our griefs, and bear our infirmities. 18 Now when Jeshu saw the great multitudes which encompassed him, he commanded that they should go to the opposite shore. 19 And a certain scribe approached him, and said, Rabi, I will come after thee to the place whither thou goest. 20 Jeshu saith to him, The foxes have their dens, and the fowls of heaven a bower, but the Son of man hath not where to lay his head. 21 And another from his disciples said to him, My Lord, permit me first to go and bury my father. 22 But Jeshu said to him Come after me, and leave the dead ones burying their dead. 23 AND when Jeshu had ascended into the ship, his disciples ascended with him. 24 And, behold, a great commotion was made on the sea, insomuch that the vessel was covered by the waves; but Jeshu himself was asleep. 25 And the disciples approached him, that they might awake him, saying to him, Our Lord, deliver us, we are perishing! 26 And Jeshu said to them, Why are you fearful, you little in faith? Then he arose, and forbade the wind and the sea, and there was a great calm. 27 But the men were struck with wonder, saying, What (being) is this, to whom the winds and the sea are obedient? 28 And when Jeshu came to the other side, to the region of the Godroyee, there met him two demoniacs, who came forth from the place of sepulchres, exceedingly malignant, insomuch that no man could pass by that way. 29 And they shouted, saying, What to us, and to thee, Jeshu, son of Aloha? Hast thou come hither before the time, to torment us? 30 Now there was at a distance from them a herd of many swine feeding. 31 Those demons, therefore, supplicated from him, saying, If thou cast us out, suffer us to go into the herd of swine. 32 Jeshu saith to them, Go: and immediately they went forth, and entered into the swine; and the whole herd rushed directly over the rock, and, plunging into the sea, perished in the waters. 33 And they who tended them, fled, and went into the city, and showed every thing that was done, and what concerned these demoniacs. 34 And the whole city came forth to meet Jeshu himself; and when they beheld him, they besought from him that he would remove from their coasts.
1 And he ascended (into) the ship, and went over, and came to his city. 2 And they brought to him a paralytic lying on a bed; and Jeshu saw their faith, and said to the paralytic, Be comforted, my son, thy sins are forgiven thee. 3 But men from among the scribes said within themselves, This blasphemeth. 4 But Jeshu knew their reasonings, and said to them, Why reason ye evil in your hearts? 5 For which is easier, to say, Forgiven are thy sins, or to say, Arise, walk? 6 But that ye may know that authority hath the Son of man in the earth to remit sins, he saith to him - the paralytic, - Arise, lift up thy bed, and go to thy house: 7 and he arose (and) went to his house. 8 When the assembly saw this, they feared, and glorified Aloha who had given such power as this unto men. 9 AND when Jeshu had passed thence, he saw a man who was sitting at the place of the tribute-takers, whose name was Mathai; and he said to him, Come after me; and he arose and went after him. 10 And while he reclined in the house, there came to him many tribute-gatherers and sinners, and reclined with Jeshu and with his disciples. 11 And when the Pharishee saw (it), they say to his disciples, Why doth your master eat with tribute-takers and sinners? 12 But Jeshu, when he heard (it), said to them, The healthful have no need for the physician, but they who are diseased.[Grievously affected.] 13 Go, learn what that is: - " I require mercy, and not sacrifice; " for I am not come to call the righteous, but the sinners. 14 Then drew nigh to him the disciples of Juchanon, and said, Why do we and the Pharishee fast much, and thy disciples fast not? 15 Jeshu said to them, Neither can the sons of the marriage-chamber fast while the bridegroom is with them: but the days are coming when the bridegroom shall be taken up from them, and then shall they fast. 16 No man inserteth a piece of new cloth upon an old garment, lest he should take away its fulness from that garment, and the rent be greater. 17 Neither do they pour new wine into old bottles,[Sacks.] that the bottles may not be broken, and the wine be spilled, and the bottles perish. But they pour new wine into new bottles, and both are preserved. 18 WHILE he spake these words with them, a certain chief came, drew near, worshipped him, and said, My daughter is now dead; but come, lay thy hand upon her, and she shall live! 19 And Jeshu arose, with his disciples, and went after him. 20 And, behold, a woman whose blood had flowed twelve years, came behind him, and touched the edge of his vestment. 21 For she was saying within herself, If I touch but his garment, I shall be healed. 22 But Jeshu turned and seeth her, and said to her, Be comforted, my daughter, thy faith hath saved thee.[Given thee life.] And the woman was healed from that very hour. 23 And Jeshu came to the ruler's house, and saw the minstrels and the crowds which were making a tumult. 24 And he said to them, Retire; for the damsel is not dead, but asleep. And they laughed at him. 25 And when he had put forth the crowds, he entered, and took her by the hand; and the damsel arose. 26 And the rumour of this went forth through all that land. 27 AND when Jeshu had passed thence, two blind men clave to him, and besought him, and said, Have compassion on us, Son of David! 28 And when he had come into the house, these blind men were brought to him. Jeshu saith to them, Believe you that I am able to do this? They say to him, Yes, our Lord! 29 Then he touched their eyes, and said, As you believe be it to you. 30 And immediately their eyes were opened. And Jeshu forbad them and said, Beware lest any man know. 31 But they went forth and spread the report of it through all that land. 32 And when Jeshu went forth, they brought to him a dumb person in whom was a demon. 33 And when the demon had gone out, the dumb spake; and the multitudes were astonished, and said, Never was it thus seen in Isroel. 34 But the Pharishee said, By the chief of the devils he casteth out devils. 35 And Jeshu itinerated in all their cities and villages, and taught in their assemblies, and preached the gospel of the kingdom, and healed all diseases and all pains. 36 BUT when Jeshu saw the multitudes, he had compassion upon them, because they fainted and were dispersed as sheep that had no shepherd; 37 and said to his disciples, The harvest is great, and the labourers few. 38 Ask, therefore, from the Lord of the harvest, that he would thrust forth labourers into his harvest.
1 And he called his twelve disciples, and gave them power over unclean spirits to cast them out, and to cure every disease and infirmity. 2 Now, of the twelve apostles the names are these: the first of them, Shemun who is called Kipha, and Andreas his brother, and Jakubbar-Zabdai, and Juchanon his brother, 3 and Philipos, and Bar-Tholmai, and Thoma, and Mathai the tribute-gatherer, and Jakubbar-Chalphai, and Labi who was surnamed Thadai, 4 and Shemun the zealous,[Kenanaia.] and Jihuda S'carjuta, he who betrayed him. 5 These twelve Jeshu sent, and commanded them and said, In the way of the heathens go not, and into the city of the Shomroyee do not enter; 6 but go rather unto the sheep which have perished from the house of Isroel. 7 And as you go, proclaim and say that the kingdom of heaven hath drawn near. 8 The diseased heal, the lepers cleanse, the dead raise, and the demons cast forth. Freely you have received, freely give. 9 Provide neither gold, nor silver, nor brass in your purses, 10 nor a wallet for the road; neither two tunics, nor sandals, nor staff: for worthy is the workman of his meat. 11 And into whatsoever city or town you enter, inquire who is worthy in it, and there be till you depart. 12 And when you enter into the house, invoke peace for the house; 13 and if the house be worthy, your peace shall come upon it; but if it be not worthy, your peace upon yourselves shall revert. 14 But whosoever doth not receive you or hear your words, when you depart from that house, or that town, set free the dust from your feet. 15 And, Amen, I say unto you, that for the land of Sadum and of Amura it will be more tolerable, in the day of the judgment, than for that city. 16 LO, I send you forth as sheep among wolves: be you, therefore, wise as serpents and guileless as doves. 17 But beware of the sons of men; for, delivering you to the house of judgments, in their synagogues they will scourge you, 18 and before governors and kings bring you, on my account, for the testimony concerning them and the gentiles. 19 But when they deliver you up, be not solicitous how or what you shall speak; for it is given you in that hour what you shall speak. 20 For it is not you speaking, but the Spirit of your Father speaking in you. 21 But the brother shall deliver his brother unto death, and the father his son; and the sons shall rise up against their fathers, and shall slay them. 22 And you shall be abhorred by all men on account of my name: but he who shall persevere until the end, he shall be saved.[Shall live.] 23 When they persecute you in this city, escape to the other; for, Amen I say unto you, that you shall not have completed all the cities of the house of Isroel, till the Son of man shall come. 24 The disciple is not greater than his master, nor the servant than his lord. 25 It sufficeth the disciple that he be as his master, and the servant as his lord. If the master of the house they have called Beelzebub, how much more his house-sons! 26 You shall not fear, therefore, from them; for there is nothing covered which shall not be revealed, nor secret which shall not be known. 27 Whatsoever I say to you in darkness, declare you in the light; and whatsoever you have heard in your ears, proclaim upon the [house-]roofs. 28 And fear not them who kill the body, but the soul cannot kill; but fear rather One who the soul and the body can destroy in gihano. 29 Are not two sparrows sold for an asor? [The assarius, value three farthings.] yet one of them, without your Father, doth not fall upon the earth. 30 But of you, also, the hairs of your head are all numbered. 31 Fear not, therefore; than many sparrows more precious are you. 32 Every man, therefore, who shall confess me before the sons of men, I myself will confess him also before my Father who is in heaven. 33 But whosoever shall deny me before the sons of men, I also will deny him, I, before my Father who is in heaven. 34 EXPECT not that I have come to send forth peace on the earth; I have not come to send forth peace, but the sword. 35 For I have come to cause a man to separate from [To divide against.] his father, and a daughter from her mother, and a daughter-in-law from her mother-in-law; 36 and the adversaries of a man (to be) his own house-sons. 37 Whosoever loveth father or mother more than me is not worthy (of) me; and whosoever loveth son or daughter more than me is not worthy (of) me. 38 And every one who taketh not his cross and cometh after me, is not worthy of me. 39 Whosoever will find his life shall lose it, and whosoever shall lose his life for my sake shall find it. 40 Whosoever receiveth you, receiveth me; and whosoever receiveth me, Him who sent me he receiveth. 41 Whosoever entertaineth a prophet in the name of a prophet, the reward of a prophet receiveth. Whosoever entertaineth a just man in the name of a just man, the reward of the just man he receiveth. 42 And whosoever only giveth one of these little ones a cup of cold (waters) to drink in the name of a disciple, Amen, I say unto you, he shall not lose his reward.
1 AND it was that when Jeshu had finished instructing his twelve disciples, he removed from thence to teach and preach in their cities. 2 But Juchanon, when he heard in the house of the bound the works of the Meshicha, sent by his disciples, 3 and said to him, Art thou He that cometh, or another are we to expect? 4 Jeshu answered and said to them, Go, recount to Juchanon these things which you hear and see; 5 (that) the blind see, the lame are walking, the lepers are made clean, the deaf hear, the dead arise, and the poor are evangelized; 6 and blessed is he who shall not be offended with me. 7 But when they were gone, Jeshu began to speak to the assembly concerning Juchanon: What went you forth into the waste to see? a reed that by the wind was shaken? 8 And if not, what went you forth to see? a man clothed in soft vestments? Behold, they who are softly clothed are in the house of kings. 9 And if not, what went you forth to see? a prophet? I tell you, Yes; and more than a prophet. 10 For this is he concerning whom it is written, Behold, I send my angel before thy face, to prepare the way before thee. 11 Amen I say to you, there hath not arisen among them born of women [one] who [is] greater than Juchanon the Baptizer: yet, the least in the kingdom of heaven is greater than he. 12 But from the days of Juchanon the Baptizer until now, the kingdom of the heavens by violence is taken, and the violent ones seize it. 13 For all the prophets and the law prophesied [Or, were prophetic.] until Juchanon; 14 and if you are willing, receive, that he is Elia who was to come. 15 Whoever hath ears to hear, he shall hear. 16 BUT to what shall I compare this generation? It is like children who sit in the public place, and cry to their companions, 17 and say, We have sung to you, and you have not danced; we have wailed unto you, and you have not mourned. 18 For Juchanon came neither eating nor drinking, and they say, He hath a devil. 19 The Son of man came eating and drinking, and they say, See a man a devourer, a wine-drinker, a friend of tribute-takers and of sinners. But justified is wisdom by her servants. 20 Then began Jeshu to reproach those cities in which were done many of his miracles, and which did not repent, 21 saying, Woe to thee, Korazin! woe to thee, Bethtsaida! for if in Tsur and in Tsaidon those miracles had been done which have been performed in you, they would a while ago in sackcloth and ashes have repented. 22 But I say to you, that for Tsur and Tsaidon it shall be more tolerable [Or, tranquil.] in the day of judgment than for you. 23 And thou, Kaphernachum, who unto heaven art exalted, unto Shiul shalt be brought down; for if in Sadum had been done those miracles which have been done in thee, it would have stood until this day. 24 But I tell you that for the land of Sadum it shall be more tolerable [Or, tranquil.] in the day of judgment than for thee. 25 IN that time Jeshu answered and said, I praise thee, my Father, the Lord of the heavens and of the earth, that thou hast concealed these (things) from the wise and prudent [ones], but hast revealed them unto little children. 26 Yes, my Father, for thus was it pleasing before thee! 27 All things are delivered to me from my Father; and no man knoweth the Son but the Father; also the Father no man knoweth, except the Son, and he (to) whom the Son pleaseth to reveal (him). 28 Come unto me, all you (who) are wearied and bearing burdens, and I will give you rest. 29 Bear my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am peaceful and lowly in my heart, and you shall find repose for your souls. 30 For my yoke is kindly, and my burden is light.
1 At that time Jeshu was walking on the sabbath among the grain;[Or, in the place of seeds.] and his disciples hungered, and began to pluck the ears and to eat. 2 But when the Pharishee saw them, they say to him, Look, thy disciples do something which is not lawful to be done on the sabbath. 3 But he said to them, Have you not read what David did when he hungered, and they who were with him? 4 how he went to the house of Aloha, and the bread of the table of the Lord did he eat, - that which was not lawful for him to eat, nor for them who were with him, but for the priests only? 5 Or have you not read in the law that the priests in the temple profane the sabbath in it, and are without blame? 6 But I say to you, that (one) greater than the temple is here. 7 Moreover, if you knew what that (meaneth), " I desire mercy and not a sacrifice," you would not have condemned them who are not faulty. 8 For the Lord of the sabbath is the Son of man. 9 AND Jeshu passed thence, and came into their synagogue. 10 And a certain man was there whose hand was withered. And they questioned him, saying, Is it lawful on the sabbath to heal? that they might accuse him. 11 But he said to them, What man is there among you that hath one sheep, (who), if it fall into a pit on the sabbath-day, doth not take and lift it up? 12 How much more precious is a child of man than a sheep! Wherefore it is lawful on the sabbath-day to do that which is good. 13 Then saith he to the man, Stretch forth thine hand! and he stretched forth his hand, and it was restored like the other its fellow. 14 And the Pharishee went forth and took counsel against him, how they might destroy him. 15 But Jeshu knew, and passed from thence; and great crowds went after him, and he healed them all. 16 And he forbad that they should make him known. 17 That what was spoken by the prophet Eshaia might be fulfilled, who said, 18 Behold my servant, in whom is my pleasure: my beloved, in whom my soul delighteth. My Spirit will I put upon him, and judgment to the peoples shall he preach. 19 He shall not contend nor cry, and no man shall hear his voice in the street. 20 A bruised reed he will not break, and a flickering lamp he will not extinguish, until he bring forth judgment unto victory. 21 And in his name shall the gentiles hope. 22 THEN they brought to him a certain demoniac who was dumb and blind; and he healed him, so that the dumb and blind could speak and see. 23 And all the multitude were amazed, and said, Is not this the Son of David? 24 But the Pharishee, when they heard, said, This (man) doth not cast forth demons unless by Beelzebub, the prince of the devils. 25 But Jeshu knew their reasonings, and said to them, Every kingdom that is divided against itself is destroyed; and every city which is divided against itself shall not stand. 26 And if Satan [Satana.] cast out Satan, he is divided against himself; how then standeth his kingdom? 27 And if I by Beelzebub cast forth demons, your sons, by whom do they cast them forth? On this account they shall be your judges. 28 But if I by the Spirit of Aloha cast forth demons, the kingdom of Aloha hath come nigh upon you. 29 Or, how can one enter the strong one's house, and spoil his goods, unless he first bind the strong one? and then can he spoil his house. 30 He who is not with me is against me; and he who gathereth not with me, in scattering scattereth. 31 Wherefore, this I say to you: That all sins and blasphemies shall be forgiven unto the sons of men; but the blasphemy which is against the Spirit shall not be forgiven to the sons of men. 32 And every one who shall speak a word against the Son of man, it shall be forgiven him; but every one who against the Spirit of Holiness shall speak, it shall not be forgiven to him, neither in this world nor in the world to come. 33 Or make the tree good, and the fruits (will be) good; or make the tree evil, and the fruits (will be) evil: for by the fruits the tree is known. 34 Brood of vipers! how can you speak good who are evil? For from the abundancies of the heart the mouth speaketh. 35 A good man from the good treasuries bringeth forth good things, and an evil man out of the evil treasuries bringeth forth evil (things). 36 But I tell you, that for every useless word which the sons of men shall speak, they must give the answer for it in the day of judgment. 37 For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned. 38 THEN answered certain from the scribes and Pharishee, and said to him, Teacher, we would wish to see a sign from thee. 39 But he answered them and said, A generation depraved and adulterous requireth a sign; but a sign shall not be given to it, but the sign of Jaunon the prophet; 40 for as Jaunon was in the belly of the fish three days and three nights, so the Son of man shall be in the heart of the earth three days and three nights. 41 The men of Ninevoë. shall rise up in the judgment with this generation, and shall condemn it; for they repented at the preaching of Jaunon; and, behold, a greater than Jaunon (is) here. 42 The queen of the south shall arise in the judgment with this generation, and shall condemn it; for she came from the confines of the earth that she might hear the wisdom of Shelemun; but one more excellent than Shelemun is here. 43 When the unclean spirit shall have gone forth from a child of man, he wandereth through places that have no waters in them, and seeketh repose, but findeth (it) not. 44 Then he saith, I will return unto the house from whence I came forth; and coming, he findeth it untenanted, cleansed, and decorated. 45 Then he goeth and taketh with him seven other spirits, than himself more wicked, and they enter and dwell in him. And the end of that man is worse than his beginning. So shall it be with this wicked race! 46 While he spake to the assembly, his mother and his brethren came, standing without, and seeking to speak with him. 47 And a man said to him, Thy mother and thy brethren are standing without, and are requesting to speak with thee. 48 But he answered and said to him who spake to him, Who is my mother, and who are my brethren? 49 And he stretched forth his hand towards his disciples, and said, Behold my mother, and behold my brethren! 50 For every one who doeth the will of my Father who is in heaven, he is my brother, and my sister, and my mother.
1 IN that day Jeshu went forth from the house and sat by the sea-side;[By the hand of the sea.] 2 and great multitudes gathered near him, so that he went up and sat in a vessel; and all the multitude were standing on the shore of the sea. 3 And he discoursed largely to them in parables, and said: Behold, there went forth a sower to sow; 4 and as he sowed, some fell by the road-side, and the fowl came and devoured it. 5 Another (portion) fell upon the rock, where there was not much soil; and immediately [Bar-shoteh, "the son of its hour."] it sprung up, because there was no depth of earth. 6 But when the sun was risen, it burned, and, because it had no root, it withered away. 7 And another fell among the thorns, and the thorns sprang up and choked it. 8 And another fell into good earth, and gave fruits, this a hundred, another sixty, and another thirty. 9 He who hath ears to hear, let him hear. 10 And his disciples approached, saying to him, Why dost thou speak to them in parables? 11 He replied and said to them, Because unto you it is given to know the mystery of the kingdom of heaven, but unto them it is not given. 12 For unto him who hath, it shall be given, and it shall be increased to him: but [as] to him who hath not, that also which he hath shall be taken from him. 13 On this account I speak to them in parables. Hence they see, and (yet) see not; and they hear, and (yet) hear not, neither understand; 14 and accomplished in them is the prophecy of Eshaia, who said, that hearing they should hear, but not understand, and seeing they should see, but not know. 15 For the heart of this people is become gross, and with their ears they have heard heavily, and their eyes they have shut, that they may not see with their eyes, nor hear with their ears, nor understand with their hearts, and be converted, and I heal them. 16 But blessed are your eyes which see, and your ears which hear: 17 for, Amen I say unto you, that many prophets and just ones have desired to behold what you see, and have not beheld, and to hear what you hear, and have not heard. 18 You, then, attend to the comparison of the seed: 19 (When) any one who heareth the doctrine of the kingdom doth not understand it, there cometh the evil (one), and snatcheth away the doctrine that was sown in his heart: this is what by the road-side was sown. 20 But that which was sown upon the rock is he who heareth the word, and at once with joy apprehendeth it. 21 Yet hath he no root in him, but is (only) for a time; and when affliction or persecution occurs on account of the doctrine, he is quickly offended. 22 That sown [in] the place of thorns, is he who heareth the word, but the anxious thought of this world and the illusions of riches stifle the word in him, and he is without fruits. 23 But that which upon good ground was sown is he who heareth my doctrine, and understandeth (it), and giveth fruits, and produceth, whether a hundred, or sixty, or thirty fold. 24 ANOTHER comparison he allegorized unto them, and said: The kingdom of heaven is like unto a man who sowed good seed in his field. 25 And while men slept, came his adversary, and sowed zizania among the wheat, and went. 26 And when the plant sprang up and produced fruit, then appeared the zizania. 27 And the labourers of the house-lord drew near and said to him, Our lord, didst thou not sow good seed in thy field? From whence then is the zizania in it? 28 But he said to them, A foeman hath done this. The labourers say to him, Art thou willing that we go and gather them? 29 But he said to them, (No,) lest, when ye gather the zizania, you root out with them the wheat also. 30 Leave (them), that both may grow together till the harvest; and in the season of harvest I will say to the reapers, Gather first the zizania, and bind them (together in) bundles, that they may burn; but the wheat collect into my barns. 31 Another comparison allegorized he to them, and said: The kingdom of heaven is like a grain of mustard, which a man took and sowed in his field. 32 This is less than all other seeds; but when it has grown, it is greater than all herbs, and becometh a tree, so that the fowl of the heavens come (and) build in its branches. 33 Another parable he spake to them: The kingdom of heaven resembles that leaven which a woman took and hid in three satas [The seä, or sata, was the third of an ephah.] of meal, until the whole was leavened. 34 All these spake Jeshu in parables to the multitude; and without a parable he did not speak with them. 35 That there should be fulfilled what was spoken by the prophet, who said, I will open my mouth in comparisons, and pour forth things hidden from before the foundation of the world. 36 Then Jeshu dismissed the multitudes, and came into the house; and his disciples drew near him, and said to him, Expound to us the comparison of the zizania of the field. 37 He answered and said to them, He who sowed the good seed is the Son of man. 38 The field is the world. Now, the good seed are the sons of the kingdom, but the zizania are the sons of the evil one. 39 The adversary who sowed them is Satana; the harvest is the consummation of the world; the reapers are the angels. 40 As, therefore, the zizania are gathered and burned in the fire, so shall it be in the completion of this world. 41 The Son of man shall send forth his angels, and they shall collect from his kingdom all those who cause offence, and all (who) work iniquity, 42 and shall throw them into a furnace of fire; there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth. 43 Then the just shall shine forth as the sun in the kingdom of their Father. He who hath ears to hear, let him hear. 44 Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a treasure which was hidden in a field, (and) which a man found and concealed, and from joy went and sold all that he had, and bought that field. 45 Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a man a merchant, who sought goodly pearls; 46 but who, when he had found one pearl of exceeding price, went, sold all that he had, and bought it. 47 Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a net, which was thrown into the sea, and from every kind collected. 48 And when it was full, they drew to the shore, and sat down, and selected; and the good they threw into vessels, and the bad they cast without. 49 Thus shall it be at the consummation of the world. The angels shall go forth, and separate the evil from among the just, 50 and cast them into the furnace of fire; there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth! 51 Jeshu said to them, Have you understood all these? They say to him, Yes, our Lord. 52 He saith to them, On this account every scribe who is learned in the kingdom of heaven, is like to a man a house-lord, who bringeth forth from his treasuries the new and the old. 53 AND when Jeshu had finished these parables, he passed from thence, 54 and came to his city, and taught them in their synagogues, so that they were astounded and said, Whence hath he (Whence to him) this wisdom and these powers? 55 Is not this the son of the carpenter? Is not his mother called Mariam, and his brothers, Jakub, and Josi, and Shemun, and Jehuda? 56 and his sisters, all, are they not with us? Whence to this one all these? 57 And they were offended with him. But Jeshu said to them, No prophet is contemned except in his own city, and in his own house. 58 And he did not many miracles there on account of their unbelief.
1 In that time Herodes Tetrarka heard the rumour concerning Jeshu; 2 and he said to his servants, This is Juchanon the Baptizer: he hath risen from the house of the dead, therefore powerful works are wrought by him. 3 For he, Herodes, had seized Juchanon, and bound him, and cast him (into) the house of the chained, because of Herodia the wife of Philip his brother. 4 For Juchanon had said to him, It is not lawful that she should be to thee a wife. 5 And he would have killed him, but he feared the people, because as a prophet they held him. 6 But at the birth-day of Herodes, the daughter of Herodia danced before those who reclined, and she pleased Herodes; 7 wherefore with an oath he sware to her to give her whatever she should demand. 8 Then she, because instructed by her mother, said, Give me here in a dish the head of Juchanon the Baptizer. 9 And the king sickened, yet, on account of the oath and the guests, he commanded that it should be given to her. 10 And he sent [and] cut off the head of Juchanon in the house of the chained. 11 And his head was brought in a dish, and given to the girl, and she carried it herself to her mother. 12 And his disciples came near, took up his corpse, buried (it), and came and showed Jeshu. 13 Then Jeshu, when he heard, removed from thence by ship to a desert place by himself; and when the multitude heard it, they came after him on dry land from the cities. 14 And Jeshu came forth, and saw great multitudes, and felt compassion for them, and healed their diseases. 15 BUT when it was eventide, his disciples approached him, and said to him, The place is desert, and the time passed over; send away these multitudes of men, that they may go to the villages, and buy for themselves food. 16 But he said to them, It is not needful that they should go; give you them to eat. 17 They said to him, We have nothing here but five cakes and two fishes. 18 Jeshu said to them, Bring them hither to me. 19 And he directed the multitudes to recline upon the ground; and he took the five loaves and two fishes, and looked up to heaven, and blessed, and brake, and gave to his disciples, and the disciples themselves placed (it) before the multitudes. 20 And all did eat, and were satisfied; and they took up, of the abundance of the fragments, twelve baskets when full. 21 Now those men who had eaten were five thousand, besides women and children. 22 And immediately he constrained his disciples to ascend into the bark, and proceed before him to the other shore, while he was dismissing the crowds. 23 And when he had sent the multitudes away, he went up to a mountain by himself, to pray. 24 AND when it was dark, he alone was there. But the vessel was distant from the land many stadia, being greatly beaten with the waves, for the wind was against them. 25 But in the fourth watch of the night, Jeshu came to them, walking upon the waters. 26 And the disciples beheld him walking on the waters, and they were troubled, saying, That it was a spectre;[Or, a false vision.] and from fear they cried out. 27 But Jeshu at once spoke to them, and said, Take courage, I am, fear not! 28 And Kipha answered, and said to him, My Lord, if it be thou, command me to come to thee upon the waters. 29 Jeshu said to him, Come. And Kipha descended from the ship, and walked on the waters to go to Jeshu. 30 But when he saw the furious wind, he feared, and began to sink; and he lifted up his voice, and said, My Lord, deliver me! 31 And immediately our Lord reached forth his hand, and seized him, and said to him, Little of faith, why art thou divided (in mind)? 32 And when they had ascended into the ship, the wind was tranquil. 33 And they who were in the ship, came and adored him, and said, Truly the Son thou art of Aloha. 34 And they rowed, and came to the land of Genésar; 35 and the men of that country recognized him, and sent to all the villages that were about them, and they brought to him all those who were grievously afflicted, 36 and besought from him that they might touch only the border of his mantle; and those who touched were healed.
1 THEN came to Jeshu Pharishee and Sophree,[Scribes.] who were from Urishlem, saying, 2 Why do thy disciples transgress the tradition of the elders, and wash not their hands when they eat bread? 3 Jeshu answered, and said to them, Why also do ye transgress the commandment of Aloha for the sake of your tradition? 4 For Aloha hath said, Honour thy father and thy mother; and whoso curseth his father or his mother, to die he shall die: 5 but ye say, Every one who shall say to a father, or to a mother, (It is) my oblation whatever thou wouldst be profited by me, and shall not honour his father or his mother (shall be guiltless). 6 Thus you have abolished the word of Aloha for the sake of your tradition. 7 Ye hypocrites! rightly prophesied concerning you Eshaia the prophet, and said, 8 This people with the lips honour me, but their heart (is) very far from me. 9 But in vain they reverence me, while they teach the doctrines of the commandments of men.[Sons of men.] 10 And he called to the multitudes, and said to them, Hear, and understand: 11 It is not that which, entering the mouth, contaminates a man; but that which shall come from the mouth, that contaminates a man. 12 Then drew near his disciples, saying to him, Knowest thou that the Pharishee who heard this word were offended? 13 But he answered, and said to them, Every plantation which my Father who is in heaven hath not planted shall be rooted up. 14 Leave them: they are blind leaders of the blind; but if a blind man shall lead a blind man, both shall fall into the ditch. 15 And Shemun Kipha answered and said, My Lord, expound to us this parable. 16 But he said to them, Do you also not yet understand? 17 Know you not that whatsoever entereth the mouth, goeth into the belly, and from thence in purification it is cast without? 18 But whatsoever from the mouth shall come forth, from the heart cometh forth, and this [it is that] contaminates a child of man. 19 For from the heart proceed evil thoughts, adultery, murder, fornication, robbery, false witness, blasphemy. 20 These are they which defile a man; but if any one eat when his hands are not washed, he is not defiled. 21 AND Jeshu went forth from thence, and came to the borders of Tsur and Tsaidon. 22 And, beheld, a Canaanite woman from those coasts came forth crying, and saying, Have mercy upon me, my Lord, son of David! my daughter is grievously possessed with the demon! 23 But he did not return her an answer. And the disciples approached and requested from him, saying, Dismiss her, for she crieth after us. 24 But he answered and said to them, I am not sent but to the sheep which have wandered from the house of Israel. 25 Then she came, worshipped him, and said, My Lord, help me! 26 Jeshu said to her, It is not proper to take the children's bread and throw it to the dogs. 27 But she said, Even so, my Lord; yet the dogs eat from the crumbs that fall from the tables of their masters, and live. 28 Then said Jeshu to her, O woman, great is thy faith! be it to thee as thou wilt! And healed was her daughter from that hour. 29 And Jeshu passed from thence, and came near the sea of Galila; and he ascended the mountain and sat there. 30 And there drew near to him great gatherings (of people), and with them there were the lame, and the blind, and the dumb, and the mutilated, and many others; and they cast them at the feet of Jeshu, and he healed them. 31 So that those multitudes were astounded as they beheld the dumb speaking, and the mutilated made whole, and the lame walking, and the blind seeing; and they glorified the Aloha of Isroel. 32 BUT Jeshu himself called his disciples, and said to them, I have pity for this multitude, who, behold, for three days have continued with me, but there is nothing for them to eat; and to send them away fasting, I am unwilling, lest they should faint in the way. 33 The disciples say to him, Whence can we have bread in the wilderness, that we may satisfy this whole multitude? 34 Jeshu saith to them, How many loaves have you? They say to him, Seven, and a few small fishes. 35 And he directed that the multitudes should recline upon the ground. 36 And he took those seven loaves and the fishes, and offered praise, and brake, and gave to his disciples, and the disciples gave to the multitudes; 37 and they all did eat and were satisfied: and they took up of the abundance of fragments seven baskets full. 38 And they who had eaten, were four thousand men, besides women and children. 39 And when he had dismissed the multitudes, he ascended into a ship, and came to the coasts of Magodu.
1 And there came Pharishee and Zadukoyee, tempting him, and demanding that he would show them a sign from heaven. 2 But he answered and said to them, When it is evening, you say, It will be serene weather, for the heaven hath reddened. 3 And in the early morning you say, To-day will be tempestuous, for the heaven hath reddened gloomily. Hypocrites! the aspect of the heaven you are skilful to discriminate, (but) the signs of this time you know not how to distinguish. 4 A depraved and adulterous race requireth a sign, but a sign shall not be given to it, save the sign of Jaunon the prophet; and he left them, and went away. 5 And when his disciples had come to the opposite [shore], they had forgotten to take bread with them. 6 But he said to them, Take heed and beware of the leaven of the Pharishee and Zadukoyee. 7 But they thought within themselves, saying, (It is) because bread we have not taken. 8 But Jeshu knew, and said to them, Why reason you within yourselves, little in faith, because bread you have not brought? 9 Have you not yet understood? Do you not remember those five loaves for the five thousand, and how many panniers you took up? 10 Or those seven loaves and the four thousand, and how many baskets you took up? 11 Why do you not understand that it was not concerning bread I spoke to you, but that you should beware of the leaven of the Pharishee and of the Zadukoyee? 12 Then they understood that he did not say that they should beware of the leaven of bread, but of the doctrine of the Pharishee and of the Zadukoyee. 13 NOW when Jeshu had come to the place of Cesarea of Philipos, he questioned his disciples, saying, What do men say concerning me who am the Son of man? 14 They said to him, Some say that thou art Juchanon the Baptizer, but others Elia, and others Eramia, or one from the prophets. 15 He saith to them, But you, whom say you that I am? 16 Shemun Kipha answered and said, Thou art the Meshicha, Son of Aloha the Living. 17 Jeshu responded and said to him, Blessed art thou, Shemun-bar-Jona; because flesh and blood have not revealed (this) to thee, but my Father who is in heaven. 18 Also I say unto thee, that thou art Kipha, and upon this rock will I build my church, and the gates of Sheul shall not prevail against her. 19 To thee will I give 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. 20 Then he commanded his disciples that no man they should tell that he was the Meshicha. 21 AND from that time began Jeshu to show to his disciples that it was to be that he should go to Urishlem, and suffer much from the elders and the chief priests and scribes, and be slain, and the third day arise again. 22 Then Kipha took him (apart?) and began to expostulate with him, and said, Far be it from thee, my Lord, that this should be to thee! 23 But he turned and said to Kipha, Get thee behind me, Satana! thou art a stumbling-block to me, because thou thinkest not from Aloha, but from the sons of men! 24 Then said Jeshu to his disciples. Whosoever willeth to come after me, let him deny himself, and let him take up his cross and follow me. 25 For whosoever willeth to save his life, shall lose it; and whosoever will lose his life for my sake, shall find it. 26 For what shall a man be profited, if the whole world he shall acquire, and his soul shall perish? or what equivalent shall a man give for his soul? 27 For it is to be, that the Son of man shall come in the glory of his Father with his holy angels, and then shall he render unto every man according to his works. 28 AMEN, I say unto you, There are men standing here who shall not taste death, until they shall have seen the Son of man coming in his kingdom.
1 And after six days, Jeshu took Kipha, and Jakub, and Juchanon his brother, and led them to a high mountain by themselves. 2 And Jeshu was changed before them; and his countenance shone like the sun, and his vestments were resplendent as the light. 3 And there were seen with them Musha and Elia talking with him. 4 Then answered Kipha, and said to Jeshu, My Lord, it is good for us to be here; and if thou art willing, we will make here three tabernacles; one for thee, and one for Musha, and one for Elia. 5 But while he spake, behold, a bright cloud overspread them, and the voice was from the cloud, saying, This is my Son, the Beloved, in whom I have delighted: to him attend. 6 And when the disciples heard, they fell upon their faces and feared greatly. 7 And Jeshu approached them and touched them, and said, Arise, fear not. 8 And they lifted up their eyes and saw no man, except Jeshu by himself. 9 And while they were descending from the mountain, Jeshu charged them, and said to them, Before no man declare this vision,* until the Son of man be risen from the dead.** [* To the eye of man tell not this vision. ** From (among) the dead: plural.] 10 And the disciples asked and said to him, Why therefore say the scribes that Elia must come first? 11 Jeshu answered and said to them, Elia cometh first that he may fulfil every thing; 12 but I say to you, that, behold, Elia hath come, but they knew him not, and have done to him as they would. So also is the Son of man to suffer from them. 13 Then understood the disciples that concerning Juchanon the Baptizer he spake to them. 14 AND when they came to the multitude, a man approached him and kneeled upon his knees, 15 and said to him, My Lord, have mercy on me! my son is lunatic and grievously afflicted; for often he falleth into the fire and often into the water. 16 And I brought him to thy disciples, but they could not heal him. 17 Jeshu answered and said, O unbelieving and perverse generation! how long shall I be with you, how long shall I bear with you? Bring him hither to me. 18 And Jeshu rebuked him, and the demon went forth from him, and the youth was healed from that hour. 19 Then came the disciples to Jeshu by himself, and said to him, Why were we not able to heal him? 20 Jeshu saith to them, Because of your unbelief; for assuredly I tell you, if there were in you faith as a grain of mustard, you should say to this mountain, Pass hence, and it would pass away; and nothing should overcome you. 21 But this kind goeth not forth but by fasting and by prayer. 22 WHEN they had returned into Galila, Jeshu said to them, It is coming that the Son of man shall be delivered into the hands of men, 23 and they shall kill him; and in the third day he shall arise. And it grieved them exceedingly. 24 And when they came to Kapher-nachum, they who took the two zuzis, the head-silver, approached Kipha and said to him, Your master, doth he not give his two zuzeen?[The zuz, or zuza, was a silver coin, value one drachm.] 25 He saith to them, Yes. And when Kipha entered the house, Jeshu anticipated him, and said to him, How doth it appear to thee, Shemun? the kings of the earth, from whom do they take custom and headsilver, from their children, or from aliens? 26 Shemun saith to him, From aliens: Jeshu saith to him, Then the children are free.[Sons of the free.] 27 But that we may not offend them, go to the sea, and cast the hook; and the fish that first cometh up, open his mouth; and thou shalt find a stater, that take and present for me and thee.
1 IN that hour the disciples came near to Jeshu, saying, Who is greatest in the kingdom of heaven? 2 And Jeshu called a child, and made him stand in the midst of them, 3 and said, Amen I say to you, unless you be converted and become as children, you shall not enter the kingdom of heaven. 4 Whosoever therefore humbleth himself as this child, he shall be greatest in the kingdom of heaven. 5 And whosoever shall receive [such] as [are] like this child in my name, he receiveth me. 6 And every one that shall offend one of these little ones who believe in me, to him it had been better that the mill-stone of an ass* were hung to his neck, and himself plunged into the depths of the sea. [* That is, the stone of a mill worked by an ass or mule.] 7 Woe to the world from causes of offence! for it is unavoidable that causes of offence will come; but woe to the man by whom [By whose hand.] the causes of offence shall come! 8 If, then, thine hand or thy foot shall be a cause of offence to thee, cut it off, and cast it from thee; for it is good for thee that thou enter into life [Lives.] lame or mutilated; and not that, having two hands or two feet, thou fall into the fire of eternity. 9 And if thine eye be a cause of offence to thee, dig it out, and cast it from thee; good (it is) for thee that with one eye thou enter into life;[Lives.] and not that, having two eyes, thou fall into the gihâna of fire. 10 See that you contemn not one of these little ones: for I say unto you that their angels in all time are beholding the face of my Father who is in heaven. 11 For the Son of man is come to save that which had perished. 12 How doth it appear to you? if a man have an hundred sheep, and one of them shall wander from them, doth he not leave the ninety and nine on the mountain, and, going, seek that which had wandered? 13 And if he shall find it, assuredly I tell you that he rejoiceth in it more than (in) the ninety and nine which wandered not. 14 So it is not good [Ad lit., " The will."] before your Father who is in heaven, that one of these little ones should perish. 15 NOW if thy brother offend against thee, go, and argue (the matter) between thyself and him alone; and if he hear thee, thou hast gained thy brother. 16 But if he hear thee not, take with thee one or two, that upon the mouth of two or three witnesses may be established every word. 17 And if, also, he will not hear them, tell the church; but if he will neither hear the church, let him be to thee as a publican and as a heathen. 18 And, Amen I say unto you, that whatsoever you shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven; and whatsoever you shall loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven. 19 Again I say to you, that if two of you shall consent on earth concerning every thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them by my Father who is in heaven. 20 For where two or three are assembled in my name, there am I in the midst of them. 21 Then Kipha came near to him, and said to him, My Lord, how many times, if my brother offend me, shall I forgive him; until seven times? 22 Jeshu said to him, I say not to thee, Until seven, but, Until seventy times seven and seven. [Septuaginta vices septem, et septem vices: vel septuagies septies et septies; id est, quatuordecim vicibus septuagies. Vide TREMELLIUM, in loc.] 23 THEREFORE is the kingdom of the heavens likened to a royal person [A man a king.] who would take the account from his servants. 24 And when he began to receive, they brought to him one who owed a myriad talents. 25 And when he had nothing to pay, his lord commanded that they should sell (both) himself, his wife, and his children, and all that he had, and to pay. 26 And that servant fell and worshipped him, saying, My lord, be patient of spirit toward me, and all things I (will) pay thee. 27 And the lord of that servant had mercy, and absolved him, and forgave him his debt. 28 Then went forth that servant, and found one of his fellows who owed him a hundred pence; and he seized him, strangling, and saying to him, Give me what thou owest to me. 29 His fellow-servant fell at his feet, beseeching him, and saying, Be patient of spirit towards me, and I (will) pay thee. 30 But he would not, but went and threw him into the house of the chained until he should have rendered him what he owed him. 31 When their fellow-servants saw what was done, they were greatly grieved, and went and declared to their lord all that was done. 32 Then his lord summoned him and said to him, Evil servant! all that debt did I forgive thee, because thou didst entreat me. 33 Oughtest thou not to have been as gracious to thy fellow-servant as I was gracious unto thee? 34 And his lord was indignant, and delivered him to the tormentors, until he should have paid all whatsoever he owed to him. 35 Thus will your heavenly Father deal with you unless you forgive each his brother from your heart his trespasses.
