9 And they that had eaten were about four thousand. and he sent them away. 10 T And straightway he entered into a ship with his disciples, and came into the parts of Dalmanutha.

11 And the Pharisees came forth, and began to question with him, seeking of him a sign from heaven, tempting him. 12 And he sighed deeply in his spirit, and saith, Why doth this generation seek after a sign? Verily, I say unto you, There shall no sign be given to this generation.

13 And he left them, and entering into the ship again, departed to the other side. 14 T Now the disciples had forgotten to take bread, neither had they in the ship with them more than one loaf.

31 And he began to teach them, that the Son of man must suffer many things, and be rejected of the elders, and of the chief priests, and scribes, and be killed, and after three days rise again. 32 And he spake that saying openly. And Peter took him, and began to rebuke him.

33 But when he had turned about, and looked on his disciples, he rebuked Peter, saying, Get thee behind me, Satan: for thou savourest not the things that be of God, but the things that be of men. 34 1 And when he had called the peo ple unto him with his disciples also, he said unto them, Whosoever will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me.

23 And he took the blind man by the hand, and led him out of the town; and when he had spit on his eyes, and put his hands upon him, he asked him if he saw aught. 24 And he looked up, and said, I see men as trees walking.

25 After that, he put his hands again upon his eyes, and made him look up: and he was restored, and saw every man clearly.

6 For he wist not what to say: for they were sore afraid.

10 And they kept that saying with themselves, questioning one with another what the rising from the dead should mean.

27 But Jesus took him by the hand, and lifted him up; and he arose.

28 And when he was come into the house, his disciples asked him privately, Why could not we cast him out?

29 And he said unto them, This kind can come forth by nothing, but by prayer and fasting.

12 And he answered and told them, Elias verily cometh first, and restoreth all things; and how it is written of the Son of man, that he must suffer many things, and be set at nought.

30 And they departed thence, and passed through Galilee; and he would not that any man should know it.

13 But I say unto you, That Elias is indeed come, and they have done unto hun whatsoever they listed, as it is written of him.

31 For he taught his disciples, and said unto them, The Son of man is delivered into the hands of men, and they shall kill him; and after that he is killed, he shall rise the third day.

14 ¶ And when he came to his disciples, he saw a great multitude about them, 32 But they understood not that say and the scribes questioning with them. ing, and were afraid to ask him. 15 And straightway all the people, 33 And he came to Capernaum: when they beheld him, were greatly and being in the house, he asked them, amazed, and running to him, saluted What was it that ye disputed among him. yourselves by the way?

16 And he asked the scribes, What question ye with them?

34 But they held their peace: for by the way they had disputed among them selves, who should be the greatest.

17 And one of the multitude answered and said, Master, I have brought unto thee my son, which hath a dumb spirit; 18 And wheresoever he taketh him, he teareth him; and he foameth and gnasheth with his teeth, and pineth away; and I spake to thy disciples that they should cast him out, and they could not.

35 And he sat down, and called the twelve, and saith unto them, If any man desire to be first, the same shall be last of all, and servant of all.

36 And he took a child, and set him in the midst of them: and when he had ta ken him in his arms, he said unto them, 37 Whosoever shall receive one of such children in my name, receiveth me: and whosoever shall receive me, receiveth not me, but him that sent me. 38 ¶ And John answered him, saying, Master, we saw one casting out devils in thy name, and he followeth not us; and we forbade him, because he followeth not us.

11 T And they asked him, saying, Why say the scribes that Elias must first come?

24 And straightway the father of the child cried out, and said with tears, Lord, I believe; help thou mine unbelief.

19 He answereth him, and saith, O faithless generation, how long shall I be with you? how long shall I suffer you? Bring him unto me.

20 And they brought him unto him: and when he saw him, straightway the spirit tare him; and he fell on the ground, and wallowed, foaming.

21 And he asked his father, How long is it ago since this came unto him? And he said, of a child.

22 And oft-times it hath cast him into the fire, and into the waters to destroy him but if thou canst do any thing,

39 But Jesus said, Forbid him not: for there is no man which sl all do a miracle in my name, that can lightly speak evil of me.

40 For he that is not against us, is on our part.


Concerning divorcement.

41 For whosoever shall give you a cup of water to drink in my name, because ye belong to Christ, verily I say unto you, he shall not lose his reward. 42 And whosoever shall offend one of these little ones that believe in me, it is better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he were cast into the sea.


43 And if thy hand offend thee, cut it off: it is better for thee to enter into life maimed, than having two hands to go into hell, into the fire that never shall be quenched:

44 Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.

45 And thy foot offend thee, cut it off: it is better for thee to enter halt into life, than having two feet to be cast into hell, into the fire that never shall be quenched:

46 Where their worn dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.

The danger of riches 10 And in the house his disciples asked him again of the same matter.

11 And he saith unto them, Whoso ever shall put away his wife, and marry another, committeth adultery against her.

12 And if a woman shall put away her husband, and be married to another, she committ, in adultery.

13 ¶ And they brought young children to him, that he should touch them; and his disciples rebuked those that brought them.

14 But when Jesus saw it, he was much displeased, and said unto them, Suffer the little children to come unto me, and forbid them not: for of such is the kingdom of God.

9 What therefore, God hath joined together, let not man put asunder.

15 Verily I say unto you, Whosoever shall not receive the kingdom of God as a little child, he shall not enter therein.

16 And he took them upin his arms, put his hands upon them, and blessed them. 17 ¶ And when he was gone forth into the way, there came one running, and kneeled to him, and asked him, Good Master, what shad I do that I may inherit eternal life?

18 And Jesus said unto him, Why call. est thou me good? there is none good, but one, that is God.

19 Thou knowest the commandments, Do not commit adultery, Do not kill, Do not steal, Do not bear false witness, Defraud not, Honour thy father and mother.

2 And the Pharisees came to him, and asked him, Is it lawful for a man to put away his wife? tempting him. 3 And he answered and said unto them, What did Moses command you? 4 And they said, Moses suffered to write a bill of divorcement, and to put her away.

47 And when he heard that it was Jesus of Nazareth, he began to cry out, and say, Jesus, thou son of David, have mercy on me.

32 T And they were in the way, going up to Jerusalem; and Jesus went before them and they were amazed; and as they followed, they were afraid. And he took again the twelve, and began to tell them what things should happen unto him,

48 And many charged him that he should hold his peace: but he cried the more a great deal, Thou son of David, have mercy on me.

50 And he, casting away his garment, rose, and came to Jesus.

51 And Jesus answered and said unto him, What wilt thou that I should do unto thee? The blind man said unto him, Lord, that I might receive my sight. 52 And Jesus said unto him, Go thy way; thy faith hath made thee whole. And immediately he received his sight, and followed Jesus in the way. CHAP. XI.

34 And they shall mock him, and shall scourge him, and shall spit upon him, and shall kill him: and the third day he shall rise again.

35 ¶ And James and John, the sons of Zebedee, come unto him, saying, Master, we would that thou shouldest do for us whatsoever we shall desire.

36 Alve the is unto them, what would ye that I should do for you?

37 They said unto him, Graut unto us that we may sit,one on thy right hand,and the other on thy left hand, in thy glory. 38 But Jesus said unto them, Ye know not what ye ask: can ye drink of the cup that I drink of? and be baptized with the baptism that I am baptized with? 39 And they said unto him, We can.

Christ rideth into Jerusalem.

AND when they came high to Jerusa lem, unto Bethphage, and Bethany, at the mount of Olives, he sendeth forth two of his disciples,

2 And saith unto them, Go your way into the village over against you: and as soon as ye be entered into it, ye shall find a cold tied, whereon never man sat; loose him, and bring him.

3 And if any man say unto you, Why do ye this? say ye that the Lord hath need of him; and straightway he wil send him hither.

4 And they went their way, and found the colt tied by the door without, in a place where two ways met; and they loose him.

5 And certain of them that stood there said unto them, What do ye, loosing the colt?

And they said unto them even as 42 But Jesus called them to him, and Jesus had commanded: and they let saith unto them, Ye know that they them go.

11 And Jesus entered into Jerusalem, and into the temple: and when he had looked round about upon all things, and now the even-tide was come, he went out unto Bethary, with the twelve. 12 ¶ And on the morrow, when they were come from Bethany, he was hungry.

13 And seeing a fig-tree afar off, having leaves, he came, if haply he might find any thing thereon and when he came to it, he found nothing but leaves: for the time of figs was not yet.

14 And Jesus answered and said unto it, No man eat fruit of thee hereafter for ever. And his disciples heard it.

31 And they reasoned with themselves saying, If we shall say, From heaven; he will say, Why then did ye not be lieve him?"

15 And they come to Jerusalem: and Jesus went into the temple, and began to cast out them that sold and bought in the temple, and overthrew the tables of the money-changers, and 33 And they answered and said unto the seats of them that sold doves; Jesus, We cannot tell. And Jesus an

26 But, if ye do not forgive, neither will your Father which is in heaven forgive your trespasses

27 And they come again to Jerusa lem: and as he was walking in the temple, there come to him the chief priests, and the scribes, and the eiders. 28 And say unto him, By what authority doest thou these things? and who gave thee this authority to do these things?

20 ¶ And in the morning, as they passed by, they saw the fig-tree dried up from the roots.

29 And Jesus answered and said unto them, I will also ask of you one question, and answer me, and I will tell you by what authority I do these things. 30 The baptisin of Jolin, was it from heaven, or of men? answer me.

21 And Peter calling to remembrance, saith unto him, Master, behold, the figtree which thou cursedst is withered away.
