Philippians 4:8

8 As to the rest, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever venerable, whatever just, whatever pure, whatever lovely, whatever prosperous; if any ability, and if any praise, reckon up these things.

Ephesians 5:1-33

1 Be ye therefore imitators of God, as dearly beloved children; 2 And walk ye in love, as also Christ loved us, and gave himself for us a gift and sacrifice to God for a smell of sweet odor. 3 And fornication, and all uncleanness, or overreaching, let it not be named with you, as becomes the holy; 4 And obscenity, and silly discourse, or wit, which things concern not; but rather thankfulness. 5 For this ye are knowing, that every fornicator, or unclean, or covetous person, who is an idolater, has no inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God. 6 Let none lead you astray with vain words: for by these things comes the anger of God upon the sons of disobedience. 7 Be ye not therefore partakers with them. 8 For ye were then darkness, and now light in the Lord: walk ye as children of light: 9 (For the fruit of the Spirit in all goodness and justice and truth.;) 10 Trying what is pleasing to the Lord. 11 And participate not with the unfruitful works of darkness, and rather also confute. 12 For the things done secretly by them it is also shameful to speak. 13 And all things refuted, by light are made manifest: for everything made manifest is light. 14 Wherefore he says, Awake, who sleeping, and arise from the dead, and Christ will enlighten thee. 15 See therefore how ye walk accurately, not as unwise, but as wise, 16 Making purchase of time, for the days are evil. 17 For this be not foolish, but understanding what the will of the Lord. 18 And be not drunk with wine, in which is debauchery; but be filled with the Spirit; 19 Speaking to yourselves on harps, and songs, and spiritual odes, singing and playing on the harp in your heart to the Lord; 20 Giving thanks always for all things, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, to God and the Father; 21 Yielding obedience to one another in the fear of God. 22 Women, yield ye obedience to your own husbands, as to the Lord. 23 For the husband is the head of the wife, as also Christ the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body. 24 But as the church is subjected to Christ, so also wives to their own husbands in everything. 25 Husbands, love your own wives, as also Christ loved the church, and delivered himself up for it; 26 That he might consecrate it, having cleansed by the washing of water in the word, 27 That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing: but that it be holy and blameless. 28 So ought men to love their own wives as their own bodies. He loving his wife, loves himself. 29 For none at any time hates his own flesh; but brings it up and cherishes it, as also the Lord the church: 30 For we are members of his body, of his flesh, and of his bones. 31 For this a man shall leave his father and mother, and be joined to his wife, and they two shall be one flesh. 32 This is a great mystery: but I speak to Christ and to the church. 33 But ye also altogether, let each so love his own wife as himself: and the wife that she fear her husband.

1 Corinthians 6:9-11

9 Or know ye not that the unjust shall not inherit the kingdom of God Be ye not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor sodomites, 10 Nor thieves; nor covetous, nor intoxicated, nor railers, nor rapacious, shall inherit the kingdom of God. 11 And these were some of you: but ye were washed, but ye were consecrated, but ye were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and in the Spirit of our God.

Matthew 5:28-19:2

28 But I say to you, That every one seeing a woman, to eagerly desire her, has already committed adultery with her, in his heart. 29 And if thine eye give thee cause of offence, take it out, and cast it from thee: for it is profitable for thee that one of thy members be destroyed, and not thy whole body be cast into hell. 30 And if thy right hand give thee cause of offence, cut it off, and cast from thee; for it is profitable to thee, that one of thy members should be destroyed; and not thy whole body should be cast into hell. 31 And it was said, That whosoever should loose his wife, let him give her a repudiation. 32 But I say to you, That whosoever shall let go his wife except for the reason of adultery, makes her to commit adultery; and whosoever should marry her having been loosed, commits adultery. 33 Again, ye have heard, that it was said to the ancients, Thou shalt not swear a false oath, and thou shalt. return to the Lord thine oaths. 34 But I say to you, Swear not at all; neither by heaven, it is the throne of God: 35 Neither by the earth; for it is the footstool of his feet: neither by Jerusalem, for it is the city of the great kings 36 Neither shouldst thou swear by thy head, for thou cant not make one hair white or black. 37 But let your word be Yea, yea, and No, no: but that above this is of evil. 38 Ye have heard, that it has been said, An eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth: 39 But I say to you not to resist evil: but whosoever shall smite thee with a rod upon thy right cheek, turn to him also the other. 40 And to him wishing to be judged with thee, and to take thy coat, let go to him also thy garment. 41 And whoever shall compel thee to carry dispatches one mile, go forward with him two. 42 To him asking thee, give thou, and him wishing to borrow from thee, thou shouldst not turn away. 43 Ye have heard that it has been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbor, and hate thine enemy. 44 But I say to you, Love your enemies, praise them cursing you, do well to them hating you, and pray for them threatening you, and driving you out. 45 So that ye might be sons of your Father, which in the heavens: for he makes his sun rise upon evil and good, and rains on the just and unjust. 46 For if ye love them loving you, what reward. have you? do not also the tax collectors the same? 47 And if ye salute your brethren only, what do ye above ordinary? and do not the tax collectors the same? 48 Therefore, be ye perfected, as your Father which is in the heavens is perfected.

Matthew 6:1-19:2

1 Attend ye not to do your justice before men, to be seen to them; and if otherwise ye have no reward from your Father which in the heavens. 2 When therefore thou doest alms, thou shouldst not sound the trumpet before thee, as hypocrites do in the assemblies, and in the streets, that they might be praised by men. Verily I say to you, They have their reward. 3 But thou doing alms, let not thy left hand know what thy right does: 4 That thine alms might be in secret; and thy Father, who seeing in secret, shall give back to thee openly. 5 And when thou prayest, thou shalt not be as the hypocrites; for they love in the assemblies, and in the corners of the broad ways to stand praying, so that they might appear to men. Verily I say to you, that they have their reward. 6 But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy store-house, and having shut thy door, pray to thy Father which in secret; and thy Father who seeing in secret shall give back to thee openly. 7 And praying, talk ye not vainly as the nations; for they think that by their profaneness of speech they shall be listened to. 8 Therefore make not yourselves like them: for your Father knows of what things ye have need before ye ask him. 9 Therefore so do ye pray: Our Father which in the heavens, Let thy name be declared holy. 10 Let thy kingdom come. Let thy will be as in heaven also upon the earth. 11 Give us this day our bread sufficient for sustenance. 12 And let go to us our debts, as we let go to our debtors. 13 And thou shouldst not lead us into temptation, but deliver thou us from evil. For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever. Amen. 14 For if ye let go to men their faults, your Father which in the heavens will also let go to you. 15 But if ye should not let go to men their faults, neither will your Father let go your faults. 16 And when ye fast, be not, as hypocrites, of gloomy aspect: for they conceal their faces that they might appear to men fasting. Verily I say to you, That they have their reward. 17 And thou fasting, anoint thy head, and wash thy face; 18 That thou mightest not appear to men fasting, but to thy Father which in secret; and thy Father which in secret, will give back to thee openly. 19 Treasure not up to you treasures upon earth, where moth and gnawing destroy, and thieves dig through and steal: 20 But treasure to you treasures in heaven, where neither moth, nor gnawing destroy; and where thieves dig not through, nor steal. 21 For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also. 22 The light of the body is the eye; if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be light. 23 But if thine eye be evil, thy whole body shall be dark. If therefore the light which in thee is darkness, how much the darkness 24 None can serve two lords: for either he will hate one and love the other; or hold firmly to one and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon. 25 For this I say to you, Be not anxious about your soul, what ye eat, and what ye drink; nor about your body, what ye put on. Is not the soul more than food, and the body than dress? 26 Look ye upon the fowls of heaven; for they neither sow, nor reap, nor collect into stores; and your heavenly Father nourishes them. Do ye not rather differ from them 27 Which of you, being anxious, can add one cubit to his size? 28 And about dress, why are ye anxious? Consider the white lilies of the field, how they grow; they are not wearied, neither do they spin: 29 And I say to you that neither Solomon in all his glory was surrounded as one of these. 30 And if the grass of the field, being this day, and to morrow cast into the furnace, God so clothes much rather you, ye of little faith! 31 Therefore be ye not anxious, saying: What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, What shall we put round us? 32 For all these the nations seek for; for your heavenly Father knows that ye have need of all these. 33 But seek first the kingdom of God and his justice, and all these shall be added to you. 34 Therefore should ye not be anxious about the morrow: for the morrow shall be anxious about the things of itself. Sufficient for the day its evil.

Matthew 7:1-19:2

1 Judge not, that ye be not judged. 2 For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged; and with what measure ye measure, it shall be repaid to you. 3 And why seest thou the mote which is in thy brother's eye, and the beam in thine eye thou observest not? 4 Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let go I will cast out the mote from thine eye: and behold a beam in thine eye. 5 Thou hypocrite, cast out first the beam from thine eye, and thou shalt see clearly to cast out the mote from thy brother's eye. 6 Ye should not give the holy thing to dogs neither should ye cast your pearls before swine, lest they tread them down with their feet, and having turned, should rend yon. 7 Ask, and it shall be given you. Seek, and ye shall find. Knock, and it shall be opened to you. 8 For everyone asking, receives and he seeking, finds; and to him knocking shall be opened. 9 Or what man is of you, which, if his son ask bread, he will not give him a stone? 10 And if he ask a fish, he will not give him a serpent? 11 If ye, therefore, being evil, know to give good gifts to your children how much more will your Father which is in the heavens give good things to those asking him? 12 Therefore all whatever ye would that men should do to you, so also do ye to them; for this is the law and the prophets. 13 Enter ye in through the strait gate, for broad the gate and spacious the way leading to destruction, and many are they coming in through it. 14 For strait the gate and afflicted the way leading into life, and few are they finding it. 15 And hold from false prophets which come in to you in sheep's dresses, but within they are rapacious wolves. 16 By their fruits shall ye know them. Far from it, do they gather grapes from thorns, or figs from caltrops 17 So every good tree makes good fruits; but the rotten tree makes evil fruits. 18 A good tree cannot make evil fruits, nor a rotten tree make good fruits. 19 Every tree not making good fruit is cut off, and cast into fire. 20 Wherefore from their fruits shall ye know them. 21 Not every one saying to me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of the heavens; but he doing the will of my Father who is in the heavens. 22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name, and in thy name have we cast out evil spirits, and in thy name done many powers? 23 And then shall I confess to them that I never knew you. Go away from me, ye working iniqnity. 24 Therefore, every one which hears these my words and does them, I will liken him to a discerning man which built his house upon the rock. 25 And the rain descended, and rivers came, and winds blew, and fell upon that house, and it fell not, for it was founded upon the rock. 26 And every one hearing these my words and doing them not, shall be likened to a foolish man, which built his house upon sand. 27 And the rain descended, and rivers came, and winds blew and struck upon that house, and it fell, and great was its fall. 28 And it was when Jesus finished these words, the crowds were struck with amazement at his teaching: 29 For he was teaching them as having power, and not as the scribes.

Matthew 8:1-19:2

1 And having come down from the mountain, great crowds followed him. 2 And, behold, a leper, having come, worshipped him, saying, Lord, if thou wilt thou canst cleanse me. 3 And having stretched forth the hand, Jesus touched him, saying, I will; be thou cleansed and instantly his leprosy was cleansed. 4 And Jesus says to him, See thou tell no one; but retire, show thyself to the priest, and bring near the gift which Moses commanded, for a testimony to them. 5 And Jesus having entered into Capernaum, a captain of a hundred came to him, and beseeching him, 6 And saying, Lord, my servant has been laid up in the house a paralytic, being grievously tormented. 7 And Jesus says to him, I, having come, will cure him. 8 And the captain of a hundred having answered said, Lord, I am not fit that thou shouldest enter in under my roof: but only say the word, and my servant shall be healed. 9 For I also am a man under power, having soldiers under me: and I say to this, Go, and he goes; and to another, Come, and he comes; and to my servant, Do this, and he does. 10 And Jesus having heard, admired, and said to those following; Verily I say to you, not in Israel have I found such faith. 11 And I say to you, That many shall come from the sunrising and the descents, and shall recline with Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, in the kingdom of the heavens. 12 But the sons of the kingdom shall be cast out into outer darkness; weeping shall be there, and gnashing of teeth. 13 And Jesus said to the captain of a hundred, Retire; as thou hast believed, let it be to thee. And his servant was healed in that hour. 14 And Jesus, having come into Peter's house, saw his mother-in-law having been laid up, and affected with fever. 15 And he touched her hand, and the fever let her go: and she arose, and served them. 16 And evening being come, they brought him many possessed with evil spirits: and he east out the spirits by the word, and cured all having evils: 17 So that that spoken by Esaias the prophet was completed, saying. He took our weakness, and lifted up diseases. 18 And Jesus seeing many crowds about him, encouraged to go away beyond. 19 And one scribe, coming near, said to him, Teacher, I will follow thee wherever thou goest. 20 And Jesus says to him, The foxes have dens, and the fowls of heaven occupy nests; but the Son of man has not where he might recline the head. 21 And another of his disciples said to him, Lord, permit me first to go and inter my father. 22 But Jesus said to him, Follow me; and let the dead inter the dead. 23 And he having gone into a ship, his disciples followed him. 24 And, behold, a great shaking was in the sea, so that the ship was covered by the waves: and be slept. 25 And his disciples, having come near, awoke him, saying, Lord, save us: we are lost. 26 And he says to them, Why are ye timorous, ye of little faith? Then having risen, he censured the winds and sea; and there was a great calm. 27 And the men admired, saying, Of what race is this for the winds and the sea listen to him. 28 And he having come beyond the country of the Gergesenes, two possessed with evil spirits, coming out of the tombs, met him, very rough, so that not any could pass by that way. 29 And, behold, they cried out., saying, What to us and thee, Jesus, Son of God? hast thou come here to torture us before the time 30 And far off from them was a herd of many swine grazing. 31 And the evil spirits besought him, saying, If thou cast us out, permit us to go away into the herd of swine. 32 And he said to them, Retire. And having gone, they went away into the herd of swine: and, behold, all the herd of swine rushed down the precipice into the sea, and died in the water. 33 And they feeding fled; and having come into the city, they announced all things, and those of the possessed with evil spirits. 34 And, behold, all the city came forth to the meeting to Jesus: and seeing him, they besought that he would go away from their boundaries.

Matthew 9:1-19:2

1 And having entered into a ship, he passed over and came into his own city. 2 And, behold, they brought him a paralytic, laid upon a bed; and Jesus seeing their faith, said to the paralytic, Take courage, child thy sins are let go to thee. 3 And behold, certain of the scribes said in themselves, This defames. 4 And Jesus seeing their reflections, said, Why reflect ye within your hearts? 5 For why is it easier to say, Sins are let go to thee; or say, Arise and walk? 6 But that ye might know that the Son of man has power upon earth to let go sins, (then he says to the paralytic), Having risen, take up thy bed and retire to thy house. 7 And having risen, he went away into his house. 8 And the crowds, seeing, admired, and praised God, giving such power to men. 9 And Jesus, passing away from thence, saw a man sitting by the custom-house, being called Matthew, and he says to him, Follow me; and having risen he followed him. 10 And it was he sitting at table in the house, and behold, many tax collectors and sinful, having come, sat at table with Jesus and his disciples. 11 And the Pharisees, seeing, said to his disciples, Wherefore does your teacher eat with tax collectors and the sinful? 12 And Jesus having heard, said to them, They being strong have no need of a physician, but they having evils. 13 And having gone, learn what is this, I wish mercy, and not sacrifice: for I came not to call the just, but the sinful to repentance. 14 Then came to him the disciples of John; saying, Wherefore do we and the Pharisees fast much, and thy disciples fast not? 15 And Jesus said to them, The sons of the nuptial chamber cannot mourn inasmuch as the bridegroom is with them; but the days shall come when the bridegroom shall be taken away from them, and then shall they fast. 16 And no one puts on a cover of uncombed fragment upon an old garment, for its filling takes away from the garment, and the division is Worse. 17 Neither do they cast new wine into old wineskins: but if otherwise, the wine-skins burst, and the wine is poured out, and the wine-skins are destroyed; but they cast new wine into new wine-skins, and they are both preserved. 18 He speaking these things to them, behold, a ruler, having come, worshipped him, saying; That my daughter has just now died: but having come, put thy hand upon her, and she shall live. 19 And Jesus having risen, followed him: also his disciples. 20 And behold, a woman discharging blood twelve years, having come near behind, touched the hem of his garment: 21 For she said in herself, If I should only touch the hem of his garment, I shall be saved. 22 And Jesus having turned round, and seeing her, said, Take courage, daughter; thy faith has saved thee. And the woman was saved from that hour. 23 And Jesus having come into the ruler's house, and seeing the flute players and the crowd making an uproar, 24 He says to them, Give way; for the girl is not dead but sleeps; and they mocked him. 25 But when the crowd was driven forth, having entered, he seized her hand, and the little girl was awakened. 26 And this report went forth into that whole land. 27 And Jesus passing from thence, two blind ones followed him, crying out and saying, Commiserate us, O son of David. 28 And having come into the house, the blind came to him: and Jesus says to them, Believe ye that I can do this? They say to him, Yes, Lord. 29 Then touched he their eyes, saying, According to your faith be it to you. 30 And their eyes were opened; and Jesus threatened them, saying, See, let none know. 31 But they, having gone out, divulged it in that, whole land. 32 And they having gone, behold they brought to him a man dumb, possessed with an evil spirit. 33 And the demon being cast out, the dumb, spake, and the crowd admired, saying, It was never so brought to light in Israel. 34 But the Pharisees said, By the chief of demons he casts out demons. 35 And Jesus went about all the cities and towns, teaching in their assemblies, and proclaiming the good news of the kingdom, and curing every disease and every weakness in the people. 36 And having seen the crowds, he felt compassion for them, for they were relaxed and dispersed, as sheep not having a shepherd. 37 Then he says to his disciples, Truly the harvest much, but the laborers few. 38 Implore therefore the Lord of the harvest, so that he might draw forth laborers into his harvest.

Matthew 10:1-19:2

1 And having called his twelve disciples, he gave them power over unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to cure every disease and every weakness. 2 And the names of the twelve sent are these: first, Simon, called Peter, and Andrew his brother; James, he of Zebedee and John his brother; 3 Philip, and Bartholomew; Thomas, and Matthew the tax collector; James, he of Alpheus, and Lebbeus, he surnamed Thaddeus; 4 Simon the Canaanite, and Judas Iscariot, he also having delivered him up. 5 These twelve Jesus sent, having announced to them, saying, Go not in the way of the nations, and into the city of the Samaritans enter ye not. 6 But rather go to the lost sheep of the house of Israel. 7 And going, proclaim, saying, That the kingdom of the heavens has drawn near. 8 Cure the sick, cleanse the leprous, rouse the dead, cast out demons; as a gift ye have received, as a gift give. 9 Provide not gold, nor silver, nor brass in your purses; 10 Nor wallet for the way, nor two coats, nor shoes, nor rod: for the laborer is worthy of his food. 11 And to whatever city or town ye should come in, examine who in it is worthy; and there remain till ye go forth. 12 And entering into a house, do ye greet it. 13 And if the house should be worthy, let your peace come upon it; but if it be not worthy let your peace return to you. 14 And whoever should not receive you, nor hear your words, coming out of that house or that city, shake off the cloud of the dust of your feet. 15 Verily I say to you, it shall be more supportable for the land of Sodom and Gomorrha in the day of judgment, than for that city. 16 Behold I send you as sheep in the midst of wolves; be ye therefore discerning as serpents, and pure as doves. 17 And hold ye from men: for they will deliver you up to councils, and in their assemblies will they scourge you. 18 And ye shalt be brought before leaders and kings for my sake, for a testimony to them and to the nations. 19 And when they deliver you up, have no care how or what ye should speak: for it shall be given you in that hour what ye shall speak. 20 For ye yourselves are not speaking, but the spirit of your father speaking in you. 21 And brother shall deliver up brother to death, and father child: and children shall rise up in revolt against parents, and kill them. 22 And ye shall be hated by all for my name: and he having remained to the end shall be saved. 23 And when they drive you out in this city, flee ye to another; for verily I say to you, Ye shall not finish the cities of Israel till the Son of man come. 24 The disciple is not above the teacher, nor the servant above his lord. 25 Sufficient to the disciple that he be as his teacher, and the servant as his lord. If they have called the master of the house Beelzeboul, how much more those pertaining to his household? 26 Therefore fear them not; for nothing has been covered, which shall not be revealed; and concealed, that shall not be known. 27 What I say to you in darkness, speak ye in light: and what ye hear in the ear, proclaim upon the houses. 28 And fear not from those killing the body, and not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him able to destroy also soul and body in hell. 29 Are not two little sparrows sold for a farthing? and one of them shall not fall to the earth without your Father. 30 And also the hairs of your head are all numbered. 31 Fear not therefore; ye have the preeminence over many sparrows. 32 Every one therefore who shall agree with me before men, I also will agree with him before my Father, him in the heavens. 33 But whoever should deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father, him in the heavens. 34 Think not that I came to cast peace upon earth; I came not to cast peace, but a sword. 35 For I came to set a man at variance against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the bride against her mother-in-law. 36 And a man's enemies, they pertaining to his household. 37 He loving father or mother above me, is not worthy of me; and he loving son or daughter above me, is not worthy of me. 38 And whoever takes not his cross, and follows after me, is not worthy of me. 39 He finding his soul shall lose it; and he having lost his soul for my sake shall find it. 40 He receiving you, receives me; and he receiving me, receives him sending me. 41 He receiving a prophet in a prophet's name, shall receive a prophet's reward; and he receiving the just in the name of the just, shall take the reward of the just 42 And whoever should give to drink one of these little ones a cup of cold water only, in the name of a disciple, verily I say to you, he shall not lose his reward.

Matthew 11:1-19:2

1 And it was when Jesus finished ordering his twelve disciples, he went away from thence to teach and proclaim in all their cities. 2 And John having heard in prison the works of Christ, having sent two of his disciples, 3 He said to him, Art thou he coming, or should we look for another? 4 And Jesus having answered said to them, Having gone, announce to John what ye hear and see: 5 The blind receive sight, and the lame walk, the leprous are cleansed, and the deaf bear, the dead are roused, and the poor have good news announced. 6 And happy is he who shall not give cause of offence in me. 7 And these going forth, Jesus began to say to the crowds concerning John, What went ye forth into the desert to see? A reed shaken by the wind? 8 But what went ye out to see? A man clad in soft garments? but they having soft things are in king's houses. 9 But what went ye out to see? A prophet? yes, I say to you, and more eminent than a prophet. 10 For this is he for whom it was Written, Behold, I send my messenger before thy face, who shall prepare thy way before thee. 11 Verily I say to you, in the begotten of women has there not risen a greater than John the Immerser; but the less in the kingdom of the heavens is greater than he. 12 From the days of John the Immerser till now the kingdom of the heavens is achieved by force, and they committing violence seize it eagerly. 13 For all the prophets, And the law prophesied till John. 14 And if ye will receive, this is Elias he about to come. 15 He having ears to hear, let him hear. 16 To what shall I liken this generation I it is like little boys sitting in market-places, and calling to their companions, 17 And saying, We played the flute to you, and ye moved not; we lamented to you and ye lamented not. 18 For John came neither eating nor drinking, and they say, He has an evil spirit. 19 The Son of man came eating and drinking, and they say, Behold a man a glutton, and wine drinker, a friend of publicans and sinful; and wisdom has been justified from her children. 20 Then began he to blame the cities in which were his greatest powers, because they repented not. 21 Woe to thee, Chorazin! woe to thee, Bethsaida! for if in Tyre and Sidon had been the powers being in you, long since had they repented in sackcloth and ashes. 22 But I say to you, To Tyre and Sidon shall it be more supportable in the day of judgment, than to you. 23 And thou, Capernaum, lifted up even to heaven, thou shalt he brought down to hades: for if in the people of Sodom had been the powers being in thee, they had remained till this day. 24 But I say to you, That to the land of Sodom it shall be more supportable in the day of judgment, than to you. 25 In that time Jesus having answered, said, I acknowledge to thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, for thou hast hidden these things from the wise and intelligent, and revealed them to children. 26 Yes, Father: for so was it benevolence before thee. 27 All things were delivered to me by my Father; and none knows the Son, except the Father; nor knows any one the Father, except the Son, and to whom the Son will reveal 28 Come to me, all ye wearied and loaded, and I will cause you to rest. 29 Lift up my yoke upon you, and learn from me; for I am meek and humble in heart; and ye shall find rest to your souls. 30 For my yoke is useful, and my load is light.

Matthew 12:1-19:2

1 In that time Jesus went in the sabbaths through the standing corn and his disciples were hungry, and begen to pluck the ears, end eat. 2 And the Pharisees, seeing, said to him, Behold, thy disciples do what is not lawful to do in the sabbath. 3 And he said to them, Have ye not read what David did, when he was hungry, and they with him; 4 How he went into the house of God, and ate the loaves of setting up, which was not lawful for him to eat, nor those with him, but for the priests alone? 5 Or have ye not read in the law, that in the sabbaths, the priests in the temple profane the sabbath, and are innocent? 6 But I say to you, That he here is greater than the temple. 7 And if ye knew what it is, I will mercy, and not sacrifice, ye would not have condemned the innocent. 8 For the Lord of the sabbath is also the Son of man. 9 And having passed from thence, he went into their assembly; 10 And, behold, there was a man having the hand withered. And they asked him saying, Is it lawful to cure in the sabbaths? that they might expose him. 11 And he said to them, Which of you shall be the man who shall have one sheep, and if this should fall into a pit in the sabbaths, will he not take hold of it, and raise it up? 12 How much then does a man surpass a sheep? So that it is lawful to do well in the sabbaths. 13 Then says he to the man, Stretch out thy hand; and he stretched it out; and it was restored, sound as the other. 14 And the Pharisees took counsel against him, having gone out, that they might kill him. 15 And Jesus having known, withdrew from thence; and many crowds followed him, and he cured them all; 16 And he rebuked them that they should not make him known: 17 So that that spoken by the prophet Esaias might be completed, saying, 18 Behold my servant, which I have chosen: my dearly beloved, in whom my soul was contented; I will put my spirit upon him, and he shall proclaim judgment to the nations. 19 He shall not contend, nor cry; nor shall any hear his voice in the streets. 20 He shall not break a bruised reed, and smoking flax shall he not quench, till he should draw forth judgment to victory. 21 And in his name shall the nations hope. 22 Then he possessed with a demon, blind, and dumb, was brought to him; and he cured him, so that the blind and dumb spake and saw also. 23 And all the crowds were affected, and said, Is not this the son of David? 24 But the Pharisees, having heard, said, He casts not out demons, but by Beelzebub, ruler of demons. 25 And Jesus knowing their reflections, said to them, Every kingdom divided against itself is laid waste; and every city or house divided against itself shall not stand. 26 And if Satan casts out Satan, he was divided against himself; how then shall his kingdom stand? 27 And I by Beelzebub cast out demons, by whom do your sons cast out? for this shall they be your judges. 28 But if I, by the Spirit of God, cast out demons, the kingdom of God has come before hand upon you. 29 Or how can any one come into the house of the strong, and plunder his goods, except be first bind the strong? and then he will plunder his house. 30 He not being with me is against me; and he not gathering with me; scatters. 31 For this I say to you, All sin and blasphemy shall be let go to men; but the blasphemy of the Spirit shall not be let go to men. 32 And whoever speaks a word against the Son of man, it shall be remitted to him; but whoever speaks against the Holy Spirit, it shall not be let go to him, neither in this time, nor that about to be. 33 Either make the tree good, and its fruit good; or make the tree rotten, and its fruit rotten; for the tree is known by its fruit. 34 O generation of vipers! how can ye speak good things, being evil? for out of the abundance of the heart the month speaks. 35 The good man, out of the good treasure of the heart, casts forth good things: and the evil man, out of the evil treasure, casts forth evil things. 36 And I say to you, That every idle word which men speak, they shill return word for it in the day of judgment. 37 For by thy words shalt thou be justified, and by thy words shalt thou be condemned. 38 Then certain of the scribes and Pharisees answered, saying, Teacher, we wish to see a sign from thee. 39 And he having answered, said to them, An evil generation and an adulteress seeks a sign; and no sign shall be given it, but the sign of Jonas the prophet. 40 For as Jonas was in the whale's belly three days and three nights; so shall the Son of man be in the heart of the earth three days and three nights. 41 The Ninevite men shall rise up in judgment with this generation, and condemn it: for they repented at the proclamation of Jonas; and, behold, a greater than Jonas here. 42 The queen of the South shall be raised up in judgment with this generation, and shall condemn it; for she came from the end of the earth to hear the wisdom of Solomon; and, behold, a greater than Solomon here. 43 And when the unclean spirit has gone out from a man, he passes through sterile places, seeking rest, and finds not. 44 Then says he, I will return into my house, whence I came out; and having come, he finds vacant; having been swept, and put in order. 45 Then he goes, and takes with himself seven other spirits, worse than he, and having come in, they dwell there: and the last things of that man are worse than the first. So also shall it be to this evil generation. 46 And he yet speaking to the crowds, behold, his mother and brethren stood without, seeking to speak to him. 47 And a certain one said to him, Behold, thy mother, and thy brethren stand without, seeking to speak to thee. 48 And he having answered, said to him speaking to him, Who is my mother? and who are my brethren? 49 And having stretched forth his hand towards his disciples, he said, Behold my mother and my brethren! 50 For whoever should do the will of my Father, him in the heavens, the same is my brother, and sister, and mother.

Matthew 13:1-19:2

1 And in that day Jesus, having come out of the house, sat by the sea. 2 And many crowds were assembled together to him; therefore having entered into the ship, he sat down, and all the crowd stood upon the sea shore. 3 And he spake to them many things in parables, saying, Behold, he, the sower, went forth to sow. 4 And in his sowing some truly fell by the way, and the flying things came and swallowed them down. 5 And others fell upon rocky places where it had not much earth, and quickly it sprang forth, for it had no depth of earth. 6 And the sun having risen, it was parched up; and for the not having a root, it was dried up. 7 And others fell among thorns, and the thorns came up and choked them. 8 And others fell upon good earth and gave fruit, some truly a hundred, and some sixty, and some thirty. 9 He having ears to hear let him hear. 10 And the disciples having come near, said to him, Why speakest thou to them in parables? 11 And having answered, he said to them, For to you it was given to know the mysteries of the kingdom of the heavens, but to them it was not given. 12 For whoever has shall be given to him, and he shall have in excess; and whoever has not, also what he has shall be taken away from him. 13 For this I speak to them in parables: for seeing they see not, and hearing they hear not, neither do they understand. 14 And the prophecy of Esaias is filled up in them, saying, In hearing shall ye hear, and not understand; and seeing ye shall see, and not perceive. 15 For the heart of this people has been thickened, and with their ears have they heard heavily, and their eyes have they closed; lest perhaps they should see with the eyes, and hear with the ears, and understand with the heart, and turn back, and I should heal them. 16 But happy your eyes, for they see: and your ears, for they hear. 17 For verily I say to you, that many prophets and just desired eagerly to see what ye see, and saw not; and to hear what ye hear, and heard not. 18 Therefore hear ye the parable of him sowing. 19 Every one hearing, and not understanding, the evil one comes, and carries off that sown in his heart. This is he having sown by the way. 20 And he having sown upon rocky places, this is he hearing the word, and quickly with joy receiving it; 21 And has no root in himself, but is for a time; and there being pressure or expulsion for the word, straightly is he offended. 22 And he having sown among thorns, this is he hearing the word; and the care of this time, and the deceit of riches, choke the word, and it is unfruitful. 23 But he having sown upon good earth is he hearing the word, and understanding; who indeed bears fruit, and who makes truly a hundred, and who sixty, and who thirty. 24 Another parable set he before them, saying, The kingdom of the heavens was made like a man sowing good seed in his field: 25 And in men's sleeping, his enemy came and sowed tares in the midst of the wheat, and went away. 26 And when the grass sprouted up and made fruit, then appeared the tares also. 27 And the servants of the master of the house having come, said to him, Lord, didst thou not sow good seed in thy field whence therefore has it tares? 28 And he said to them, A man, an enemy, has done this: and his servants said to him, Wilt thou therefore we, having departed, should gather them 29 And he said, No; lest gathering the tares, ye root up the wheat together with them. 30 Suffer both to grow together till harvest; and in time of harvest I will say to the reapers, Gather first the tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them; and gather the wheat into my barn. 31 Another parable set he before them, saying, The kingdom of the heavens is like a kernel of mustard, which a man taking, sowed in his field: 32 Which truly is less than all seeds; but when it has grown, it is greater than vegetables, and becomes a tree, so that the flying things of heaven come and lodge in its young shoots. 33 Another parable spake he to them; The kingdom of the heavens is like to leaven, which a woman having taken, hid in three measures of wheaten flour, till the whole was leavened. 34 All these things spake Jesus in parables to the crowds; and without a parable spake he not to them. 35 So that that spoken by the prophet might be filled up; saying, I will open my mouth in parables; I will declare things having been hid from the foundation of the world. 36 Then Jesus having dismissed the crowds, went into the house; and his disciples came to him, saying, Explain to us the parable of the tares of the field. 37 And he having answered, said to them, He sowing the good seed is the Son of man: 38 And the field is the world; and the good seed, these are the sons of the kingdom; and the tares are the sons of the evil one; 39 And the enemy having sowed them is the devil; and the harvest is the end of time; and the reapers are the messengers. 40 As therefore the tares are gathered together and burnt in fire; so shall it be in the end of this time. 41 The Son of man shall send forth his messengers, and they shall gather out of his kingdom all scandals, and those doing iniquity; 42 And they shall cast them into a furnace of fire; there shall there be weeping and gnashing of teeth. 43 Then shall the just emit a brilliant light as the sun in the kingdom of their Father. He having ears to hear, let him hear. 44 Again, the kingdom of the heavens is like to a treasure hid in the field; which a man finding, concealed, and from his joy, he retires, and all things which he has he sells, and he purchases that field. 45 Again, the kingdom of the heavens is like to a man, a wholesale merchant, seeking beautiful pearls: 46 Who, finding one pearl of great value, having departed, he sold all things which he had, and purchased it. 47 Again, the kingdom of the heavens is like to a large sweep-net, cast into the sea, and having gathered of every kind: 48 Which, when it was filled, having raised up upon the shore, and having set down, they gathered the good things into vessels, and the rotten things they cast without. 49 So shall it be in the end of time; the messengers shall come forth, and separate the evil from the midst of the just, 50 And they shall cast them into a furnace of fire; there shall there be weeping and gnashing of teeth. 51 Jesus says to them, Have ye understood all these? They say to him, Yes, Lord. 52 And he said to them, Therefore every scribe, having been a disciple in the kingdom of the heavens, is like to a man, master of a house, who casts out from his treasure new things and old. 53 And it was when Jesus finished these parables, he removed thence. 54 And having come into his native land, he taught them in their assembly, so that they were struck with amazement, and said, Whence to him this wisdom, and powers? 55 Is not this the son of the carpenter? is not his mother called Mary? and his brethren, James, and Joses, and Simon, and Judas? 56 And his sisters, are they not all with us? Whence then to him all these? 57 And they were scandalized in him. And Jesus said to them, A prophet is not unhonoured, except in his native land, and in his house. 58 And he did not many powers there, because of their unbelief.

Matthew 14:1-19:2

1 In that time Herod the tetrarch heard the report of Jesus, 2 And he said to his servants, This is John the Baptist; be was aroused from the dead; and for this, powers are energetic in him. 3 For Herod, having seized John, bound him, and put him in prison for Herodias, his brother Philip's wife: 4 For John said to him, It is not lawful for thee to have her: 5 And wishing to kill him, he was afraid of the crowd, because they held John as a prophet. 6 The festivities of Herod's birthday being celebrated, the daughter of Herodias danced in the midst, and pleased Herod. 7 Wherefore, with an oath, he agreed to give her whatever she should ask. 8 And having been urged on by her mother, Give me, she says, here upon a board, the head of John the Baptist. 9 And the king was grieved: but for his oath, and those reclining together at the table, he ordered to be given. 10 And having sent, he beheaded John in the prison. 11 And his head was brought upon a board, and given to the girl, and she brought to her mother. 12 And his disciples having come near, took away the body, and interred it; and having come, they announced to Jesus. 13 And Jesus having heard, withdrew from thence into a desert place apart: and the crowds, having heard, followed him on foot from the cities. 14 And Jesus having come, saw a great crowd: and he felt compassion for them, and he cured their sick. 15 And being evening, his disciples came to him, saying, It is a desert place, and the time has passed already; loose the crowds, that, having gone into towns, they might purchase food for themselves. 16 But Jesus said to them, They have no need to depart; give ye them to eat. 17 And they say to him, We have not here but five loaves, and two fishes. 18 And he said, Bring them here to me. 19 And having encouraged the crowds to recline upon the grass, and having taken the five loaves, and two fishes, and having looked up to heaven, he praised; and having broken, gave the loaves to the disciples, and the disciples to the crowds. 20 And they all ate, and were satisfied; and they took up the remaining of fragments, twelve baskets full. 21 And they eating were five thousand men, besides women and children. 22 And quickly Jesus constrained his disciples to go into the ship, and to go before him to the other side, till he should loose the crowds. 23 And having loosed the crowds, he went up into a mount apart to pray: and being evening, he was there alone. 24 And the ship was already in the midst of the sea, overcharged by waves: for the wind was contrary. 25 And in the fourth watch of the night Jesus went out to them, walking upon the sea. 26 And the disciples seeing him walking upon the sea, were troubled, saying, It is an apparition; and they cried out for fear. 27 And quickly Jesus spake to them, saying, Take courage; I am; be not afraid. 28 And Peter having answered him, said, Lord, if thou art, encourage me to come upon the waters. 29 And he said, Come. And Peter having gone down from the ship, walked upon the waters, to go to Jesus. 30 And seeing the wind strong, he was afraid: and beginning to sink, he cried out, Lord, save me. 31 And quickly Jesus, having stretched out the hand, laid hold of him, and says to him, O thou of little faith, for what didst thou doubt? 32 And having gone into the ship, the wind ceased. 33 And they in the ship, having come, worshipped him, saying, Thou art truly the Son of God. 34 And having passed over, they came to the land of Gennesaret. 35 And the men of the place, having known him, sent into the whole country round about, and brought to him all those having evils: 36 And besought him that they might only touch the hem of his garment: and as many as touched were saved from danger.

Matthew 15:1-19:2

1 Then came to Jesus from Jerusalem the scribes and Pharisees, saying, 2 Wherefore do thy disciples pass by the tradition of the elders? for they wash not their hands when they eat bread. 3 And he, having answered, said to them, Wherefore do ye also pass by the command of God by your tradition 4 For God commanded, saying, Honour thy father and mother: and, he calumniating father or mother, in death let him die. 5 And ye say, Whoever should say to father or mother, A gift, whatever thou shouldest be profited by me; 6 And should not honour his father or his mother. And ye have annulled the command of God by your tradition. 7 Hypocrites, well did Esaias prophesy of you, saying, 8 This people draw near me with their mouth, and honour me with their lips; but their heart keeps off far from me. 9 But they worship me in vain, teaching doctrines the commands of men. 10 And having called the crowd, he said to them, Hear ye, and understand. 11 Not that coming into the mouth pollutes the man; but that going forth out of the mouth, this pollutes the man. 12 Then his disciples having come near, said to him, Knowest thou that the Pharisees, having heard the word, were scandalized? 13 And having answered, he said, Every plant, which my heavenly Father has not planted, shall be rooted up. 14 Let them go: they are blind guides of the blind. And if the blind guide the blind, both shall fall into the ditch. 15 And Peter, having answered, said to him, Explain to us this parable. 16 And Jesus said, Are ye also yet destitute of understanding? 17 Do ye not yet understand, that everything going into the mouth proceeds to the belly, and is cast out in the privy? 18 But the things going forth out of the mouth come from the heart, and these pollute the man. 19 For from the heart come forth evil reflections, slaughters, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false testimonies, defamations: 20 These are the things polluting a man: but to eat with unwashed hands pollutes not a man. 21 And Jesus, having gone forth from thence, withdrew into the parts of Tyre and Sidon. 22 And, behold, a woman, a Canaanite, having come forth from those boundaries, cried out to him, saying, Pity me, Lord, son of David; my daughter is badly possessed with an evil spirit. 23 And he answered her not a word. And his disciples, having come, asked him, saying, Loose her; for she cries out after us. 24 And he, having answered, said, I was not sent except to the sheep having been lost, of the house of Israel. 25 And she, having come, worshipped him, saying, Lord, help me. 26 And he, having answered, said, It is not good to take the children's bread, and cast it to the little dogs. 27 And she said, Yes, Lord; for the little dogs also eat from the crumbs falling from the table of their lord. 28 Then Jesus, having answered, said to her, O woman, great thy faith: let it be to thee as thou wilt. And her daughter was healed from that hour. 29 And having passed from thence, Jesus came to the sea of Galilee; and having gone up into a mountain, he sat there. 30 And many crowds came to him, having with them the lame, blind, dumb, maimed, and many others, and they cast them at the feet of Jesus; and he cured them: 31 So that the crowds wondered, seeing the dumb speaking, the maimed sound, the lame walking, and the blind seeing: and they praised the God of Israel. 32 And Jesus having called his disciples, said, I feel compassion for the crowd, for already they remain with me three days, and they have nothing they could eat: and I will not leave them fasting, lest they be relaxed in the way. 33 And his disciples say to him, Whence to us, in a lonely place, so many loaves, to satisfy such a crowd I 34 And he says to them, How many loaves have ye? And they said, Seven, and a few little fishes. 35 And he encouraged the crowd to recline upon the earth. 36 And having taken the seven loaves and the fishes, having returned thanks, he brake, and gave to his disciples, and the disciples to the crowd. 37 And all ate, and were satisfied: and they took up that remaining of the fragments seven wicker baskets full. 38 And they eating were four thousand men, besides women and children. 39 And having loosed the crowds, he went into a ship, and came into the bounds of Magdala.

Matthew 16:1-19:2

1 And the Pharisees and Sadducees having come, tempting, asked him to shew them a sign from heaven. 2 And he having answered, said to them, It being evening, ye say, Calm weather: for the heaven is fiery red. 3 And in the morning, Today, wintry weather: for heaven, being sad, is fiery red. Hypocrites, truly ye know to decide the face of heaven, but the signs of the times ye cannot. 4 An evil and adulterous generation seeks for a sign; and no sign shall be given her, except the sign of Jonas the prophet. And having left them, he departed. 5 And his disciples having come to the other side, forgot to take loaves. 6 And Jesus said to them, Attend and keep from the leaven of the Pharisees and the Sadducees. 7 And they reasoned among themselves, saying, Because we took no loaves. 8 And Jesus having known, said to them, Why reason ye among yourselves, O ye of little faith, because ye have taken no loaves 9 Do ye not yet understand, nor remember the five loaves of five thousand, and how many baskets ye took? 10 Nor the seven loaves of four thousand, and how many wicker baskets ye took? 11 How do ye not understand that I spake not to you concerning bread, to keep from the leaven of the Pharisees and Sadducees? 12 Then understood they that he spake, not to keep from the leaven of bread, but from the teaching of the Pharisees and Sadducees. 13 And Jesus, having come into the parts of Caesarea of Philippi, asked his disciples, saying, Whom do men say me to be, the Son of Man? 14 And they said, Some, truly, John the Baptist: and others, Elias; and others, Jeremias, or one of the prophets. 15 And he says to them, But whom say ye me to be? 16 And Simon Peter having answered, said, Thou art Christ, the Son of the living God. 17 And Jesus, having answered, said to him, Happy art thou, Simon Barjona: for flesh and blood has not revealed to thee, but my Father, he in the heavens. 18 And I say to thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock will I build my church; and the gates of hell shall not overcome her. 19 And I will give thee the keys of the kingdom of the heavens: and whatever thou shalt bind upon earth shall be bound in the heavens: and whatever thou shalt loose upon earth shall be loosed in the heavens. 20 Then he enjoined his disciples that they say to none that he is Jesus Christ. 21 From then Jesus began to shew to his disciples, that he must depart to Jerusalem, and suffer many things from the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be killed, and be raised in the third day. 22 And Peter having taken him, began to reproach him, saying, Be propitious to thyself, Lord: this shall not be to thee. 23 And having turned, he said to Peter, Retire behind me, Satan: thou art an offence, to me: for thou hast not in mind the things of God, but the things of men. 24 Then said Jesus to his disciples, If any wish to come after me, let him deny himself absolutely, and lift up his cross, and follow me. 25 For whoever should wish to save his life shall lose it: and whoever shall lose his soul for my sake shall find it. 26 For what is a man profited, if he should gain the whole world, and injure his soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul? 27 For the Son of man is about to come in the glory of his Father with his messengers; and then he will give back to each according to his deed. 28 Verily I say to you, Some are standing here, who should not taste of death, till they see the Son of man coming in his kingdom.

Matthew 17:1-19:2

1 And after six days Jesus takes Peter, James, and John his brother, and brings them up into a high mountain apart. 2 And he was transformed before them: and his face shone as the sun, and his garments were white as the light. 3 And, behold, Moses and Elias were seen to them, conversing with him. 4 And Peter, having answered, said to Jesus, Lord, it is good for us to be here: let us make here three tents; one for thee, and one for Moses, and one for Elias. 5 He yet speaking, behold, a shining cloud overshadowed them: and behold a voice out of the cloud, saying, This is my dearly beloved Son, in whom I was contented; hear ye him. 6 And the disciples, having heard, fell upon their face, and were greatly afraid. 7 And Jesus, having come, touched them, and said, Be raised, and be not afraid. 8 And having lifted up their eyes, they saw no one but Jesus alone. 9 And they, coming down from the mountain, Jesus charged them, saying, Tell the sight to none, even till the Son of man rises from the dead. 10 And his disciples asked him, saying, Why then say the scribes that Elias must first come? 11 And Jesus having answered, said to them, Elias truly comes first and will re-establish all things. 12 And I say to you, That Elias has already come, and they knew him not, but did by him whatever they would. So also the Son of man is about to suffer by them. 13 Then understood the disciples that he told them of John the Baptist. 14 And they having come to the crowd, there came to him a man, supplicating on his knees to him, and saying, 15 Lord, pity my son: for he is a lunatic, and suffers badly: for many times he falls into the fire, and many times into the water. 16 And I brought him to thy disciples, and they could not cure him. 17 And Jesus, having answered, said, O faithless and perverted generation, how long shall I be with you how long shall I endure you? bring him here to me. 18 And Jesus censured him; and the demon went forth out of him: and the child was cured from that hour. 19 Then the disciples having come to Jesus apart, said, Why could not we cast it out? 20 And Jesus said to them, For your unbelief: for truly I say to you, If ye have faith as a kernel of mustard, ye shall say to this mount, Go away from thence, and it shall go away; and nothing shall be impossible to you. 21 But this kind goes not forth but by prayer and fasting. 22 And they having returned into Galilee, Jesus said to them, The Son of man is about to be delivered into the hands of men: 23 And they shall kill him, and the third day he shall be raised. And they were greatly grieved. 24 And they having come to Capernaum, they taking double drachmas came to Peter and said, Does not your teacher pay double drachmas? 25 He says, Yes. And when he came into the house, Jesus anticipated him, saying, What seems to thee, Simon? from whom do the kings of the earth take taxes or census? from their sons, or from strangers? 26 Peter says to him, From strangers. Jesus said to him, Then are the children free. 27 But that we should not scandalize them, having gone to the sea, cast a fish hook, and lift up the fish coming up first, and having opened its mouth, thou shalt find a gold coin: having taken that, give to them for me and thee.

Matthew 18:1-19:2

1 In that hour came the disciples to Jesus, saying, Who is the greater in the kingdom of the heavens? 2 And Jesus, having called a young child, set it in the midst of them, 3 And said, Truly I say to you, Except ye be turned, and become as young children, ye should not come into the kingdom of the heavens. 4 Whoever, therefore, should be humbled as this young child, the same is the greater in the kingdom of the heavens. 5 And whoever shall receive such a young child in my name, receives me. 6 And whoever should offend one of these little ones believing in me, it is profitable for him that the millstone of an ass be hung upon his neck, and he be sunk in the midst of the sea. 7 Woe to the world for offences I for there is necessity for offences to come; but woe to that man by whom the offence comes! 8 And if thy hand or thy foot give thee cause of offence, cut them off, and cast from thee: it is good for thee to come into life lame or maimed, than having two hands or two feet to be cast into eternal fire. 9 And if thine eye give thee cause of offence, take it out, and east from thee: it is good for thee, one-eyed, to enter into life, than having two eyes to be cast into a hell of fire. 10 See that ye despise not one of these little ones; for I say to you, That their messengers in the heavens always behold the face of my Father which is in the heavens. 11 For the Son of man has come to save the lost. 12 What does it seem to you? if there be to any man a hundred sheep, and one of them have been led astray, does he not, having left the ninety-nine upon the mountains, having gone, seek the one led astray? 13 And if it be found, truly I say to you, he rejoices more over it, than over the ninety-nine not led astray. 14 So is not the will of your Father, he in the heavens, that one of these little ones be lost. 15 And if thy brother sin against thee, retire, and refute him between thee and him alone; if he hear thee, thou hast gained thy brother. 16 But if he hear thee not, take with thee yet one or two, that at the mouth of two or three witnesses every word might stand. 17 And if he refuse hearing them, speak to the church: and if he refuse hearing the church, let him be to thee as of the nations and a publican. 18 Truly I say to you, Whatever things ye should bind on earth shall be bound in heaven; and whatever things ye should loose upon earth shall be loosed in heaven. 19 Again, I say to you, That if two of you agree in opinion for everything which they ask, it shall be to them of my Father, he in the heavens. 20 For where two or three are assembled in my name, there am I in the midst of them. 21 Then Peter, having come to him, said, Lord, how often shall my brother sin against me, and I let him go? Till seven times? 22 And Jesus says to him, I say not to thee, till seven times; but till seventy times seven. 23 Therefore the kingdom of the heavens was likened to a man, the king, who wished to lift up the word together with his servants. 24 And he having begun to settle accounts, one was brought him, a debtor of ten thousand talents. 25 And he not having to give back, his lord ordered him to be sold, and his wife and his children, and all which he had also to be given back. 26 Then the servant, having fallen, worshipped him, saying, Lord, be slow to anger towards me, and I will give back all to thee. 27 And the lord of that servant, having felt compassion, loosed him, and let go to him the money lent. 28 But that servant having come, found one of his fellow-servants who owed him one hundred drachmas, and having seized, he choked him, saying, Give back to me what thou owest. 29 Then his fellow-servant having fallen at his feet besought him, saying, Be slow to anger towards me, and I will give back all to thee. 30 . And he would not; but having departed he cast him into prison till he should give back that being owed. 31 And his fellow-servants having seen the thing done, were greatly grieved, and having come, made known to their lord all things done. 32 Then his lord, having called him, said unto him, O thou evil servant, I let go to you all that debt since thou besoughtest me: 33 Oughtest thou not also to pity thy fellow-servant, as I also pitied thee 34 And his lord having become angry, delivered him to the torturers even till he should give back all being owed to him. 35 So also will my heavenly Father do to you, if ye let not go each to his brother from your hearts their falls.

Matthew 19:1-2

1 And it was when Jesus finished these words he removed from Galilee, and came from the bounds of Judea beyond Jordan; 2 And many crowds followed him; and he cured them there.
