The Book of Matthew
The book of the generation of Jesus Christ, the son of
David, the son of Abraham.
2 Abraham begat Isaac; and Isaac begat
Jacob; and Jacob begat Judas and his brethren;
3 And Judas begat
Phares and Zara of Thamar; and Phares begat Esrom; and Esrom begat
4 And Aram begat Aminadab; and Aminadab begat Naasson; and
Naasson begat Salmon;
5 And Salmon begat Booz of Rachab; and Booz
begat Obed of Ruth; and Obed begat Jesse;
6 And Jesse begat David
the king; and David the king begat Solomon of her that had been the wife
7 And Solomon begat Roboam; and Roboam begat Abia; and
Abia begat Asa;
8 And Asa begat Josaphat; and Josaphat begat Joram;
and Joram begat Ozias;
9 And Ozias begat Joatham; and Joatham begat
Achaz; and Achaz begat Ezekias;
10 And Ezekias begat Manasses; and
Manasses begat Amon; and Amon begat Josias;
11 And Josias begat
Jechonias and his brethren, about the time they were carried away to
12 And after they were brought to Babylon, Jechonias begat
Salathiel; and Salathiel begat Zorobabel;
13 And Zorobabel begat
Abiud; and Abiud begat Eliakim; and Eliakim begat Azor;
14 And Azor
begat Sadoc; and Sadoc begat Achim; and Achim begat Eliud;
Eliud begat Eleazar; and Eleazar begat Matthan; and Matthan begat
16 And Jacob begat Joseph the husband of Mary, of whom was
born Jesus, who is called Christ.
17 So all the generations from
Abraham to David are fourteen generations; and from David until the
carrying away into Babylon are fourteen generations; and from the carrying
away into Babylon unto Christ are fourteen generations.
18 Now the
birth of Jesus Christ was on this wise: When as his mother Mary was
espoused to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child of
the Holy Ghost.
19 Then Joseph her husband, being a just man, and
not willing to make her a publick example, was minded to put her away
20 But while he thought on these things, behold, the angel
of the LORD appeared unto him in a dream, saying, Joseph, thou son of
David, fear not to take unto thee Mary thy wife: for that which is
conceived in her is of the Holy Ghost.
21 And she shall bring forth
a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people
from their sins.
22 Now all this was done, that it might be
fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet, saying,
Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and
they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with
24 Then Joseph being raised from sleep did as the angel of the
Lord had bidden him, and took unto him his wife:
25 And knew her
not till she had brought forth her firstborn son: and he called his name
1 Now when Jesus was born in Bethlehem
of Judaea in the days of Herod the king, behold, there came wise men from
the east to Jerusalem,
2 Saying, Where is he that is born King of
the Jews? for we have seen his star in the east, and are come to worship
3 When Herod the king had heard these things, he was troubled,
and all Jerusalem with him.
4 And when he had gathered all the
chief priests and scribes of the people together, he demanded of them
where Christ should be born.
5 And they said unto him, In Bethlehem
of Judaea: for thus it is written by the prophet,
6 And thou
Bethlehem, in the land of Juda, art not the least among the princes of
Juda: for out of thee shall come a Governor, that shall rule my people
7 Then Herod, when he had privily called the wise men,
enquired of them diligently what time the star appeared.
8 And he
sent them to Bethlehem, and said, Go and search diligently for the young
child; and when ye have found him, bring me word again, that I may come
and worship him also.
9 When they had heard the king, they
departed; and, lo, the star, which they saw in the east, went before them,
till it came and stood over where the young child was.
10 When they
saw the star, they rejoiced with exceeding great joy.
11 And when
they were come into the house, they saw the young child with Mary his
mother, and fell down, and worshipped him: and when they had opened their
treasures, they presented unto him gifts; gold, and frankincense and
12 And being warned of God in a dream that they should not
return to Herod, they departed into their own country another
13 And when they were departed, behold, the angel of the Lord
appeareth to Joseph in a dream, saying, Arise, and take the young child
and his mother, and flee into Egypt, and be thou there until I bring thee
word: for Herod will seek the young child to destroy him.
he arose, he took the young child and his mother by night, and departed
15 And was there until the death of Herod: that it
might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet, saying,
Out of Egypt have I called my son.
16 Then Herod, when he saw that
he was mocked of the wise men, was exceeding wroth, and sent forth, and
slew all the children that were in Bethlehem, and in all the coasts
thereof, from two years old and under, according to the time which he had
diligently enquired of the wise men.
17 Then was fulfilled that
which was spoken by Jeremy the prophet, saying,
18 In Rama was
there a voice heard, lamentation, and weeping, and great mourning, Rachel
weeping for her children, and would not be comforted, because they are
19 But when Herod was dead, behold, an angel of the Lord
appeareth in a dream to Joseph in Egypt,
20 Saying, Arise, and take
the young child and his mother, and go into the land of Israel: for they
are dead which sought the young child's life.
21 And he arose, and
took the young child and his mother, and came into the land of
22 But when he heard that Archelaus did reign in Judaea in
the room of his father Herod, he was afraid to go thither:
notwithstanding, being warned of God in a dream, he turned aside into the
parts of Galilee:
23 And he came and dwelt in a city called
Nazareth: that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophets, He
shall be called a Nazarene.
those days came John the Baptist, preaching in the wilderness of
2 And saying, Repent ye: for the kingdom of heaven is at
3 For this is he that was spoken of by the prophet Esaias,
saying, The voice of one crying in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of
the Lord, make his paths straight.
4 And the same John had his
raiment of camel's hair, and a leathern girdle about his loins; and his
meat was locusts and wild honey.
5 Then went out to him Jerusalem,
and all Judaea, and all the region round about Jordan,
6 And were
baptized of him in Jordan, confessing their sins.
7 But when he saw
many of the Pharisees and Sadducees come to his baptism, he said unto
them, O generation of vipers, who hath warned you to flee from the wrath
8 Bring forth therefore fruits meet for
9 And think not to say within yourselves, We have
Abraham to our father: for I say unto you, that God is able of these
stones to raise up children unto Abraham.
10 And now also the axe
is laid unto the root of the trees: therefore every tree which bringeth
not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.
indeed baptize you with water unto repentance. but he that cometh after me
is mightier than I, whose shoes I am not worthy to bear: he shall baptize
you with the Holy Ghost, and with fire:
12 Whose fan is in his
hand, and he will throughly purge his floor, and gather his wheat into the
garner; but he will burn up the chaff with unquenchable fire.
Then cometh Jesus from Galilee to Jordan unto John, to be baptized of
14 But John forbad him, saying, I have need to be baptized of
thee, and comest thou to me?
15 And Jesus answering said unto
him, Suffer it to be so now: for thus it
becometh us to fulfil all righteousness. Then he suffered
16 And Jesus, when he was baptized, went
up straightway out of the water: and, lo, the heavens were opened unto
him, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove, and lighting
17 And lo a voice from heaven, saying, This is my beloved
Son, in whom I am well pleased.
Then was Jesus led up of the spirit into the wilderness to be tempted of
2 And when he had fasted forty days and forty nights, he
was afterward an hungred.
3 And when the tempter came to him, he
said, If thou be the Son of God, command that these stones be made
4 But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word
that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.
the devil taketh him up into the holy city, and setteth him on a pinnacle
of the temple,
6 And saith unto him, If thou be the Son of God,
cast thyself down: for it is written, He shall give his angels charge
concerning thee: and in their hands they shall bear thee up, lest at any
time thou dash thy foot against a stone.
7 Jesus said unto him,
It is written again, Thou shalt not
tempt the Lord thy God.
8 Again, the devil
taketh him up into an exceeding high mountain, and sheweth him all the
kingdoms of the world, and the glory of them;
9 And saith unto him,
All these things will I give thee, if thou wilt fall down and worship
10 Then saith Jesus unto him,
Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy
God, and him only shalt thou serve.
11 Then the
devil leaveth him, and, behold, angels came and ministered unto
12 Now when Jesus had heard that John was cast into prison, he
departed into Galilee;
13 And leaving Nazareth, he came and dwelt
in Capernaum, which is upon the sea coast, in the borders of Zabulon and
14 That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by
Esaias the prophet, saying,
15 The land of Zabulon, and the land of
Nephthalim, by the way of the sea, beyond Jordan, Galilee of the
16 The people which sat in darkness saw great light; and
to them which sat in the region and shadow of death light is sprung
17 From that time Jesus began to preach, and to say,
Repent: for the kingdom of heaven is at
18 And Jesus, walking by the sea of
Galilee, saw two brethren, Simon called Peter, and Andrew his brother,
casting a net into the sea: for they were fishers.
19 And he saith
unto them, Follow me, and I will make
you fishers of men.
20 And they straightway
left their nets, and followed him.
21 And going on from thence, he
saw other two brethren, James the son of Zebedee, and John his brother, in
a ship with Zebedee their father, mending their nets; and he called
22 And they immediately left the ship and their father, and
23 And Jesus went about all Galilee, teaching in
their synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing all
manner of sickness and all manner of disease among the people.
And his fame went throughout all Syria: and they brought unto him all sick
people that were taken with divers diseases and torments, and those which
were possessed with devils, and those which were lunatick, and those that
had the palsy; and he healed them.
25 And there followed him great
multitudes of people from Galilee, and from Decapolis, and from Jerusalem,
and from Judaea, and from beyond Jordan.
seeing the multitudes, he went up into a mountain: and when he was set,
his disciples came unto him:
2 And he opened his mouth, and taught
3 Blessed are the
poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
4 Blessed are they that
mourn: for they shall be comforted.
Blessed are the meek: for they shall
inherit the earth.
6 Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness:
for they shall be filled.
7 Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain
8 Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God.
9 Blessed are the
peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.
10 Blessed are they which
are persecuted for righteousness' sake: for theirs is the kingdom of
11 Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and
shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake.
12 Rejoice, and be
exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they
the prophets which were before you.
Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the
salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth
good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of

Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a
candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the
your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and
glorify your Father which is in heaven.
Think not that I am come to destroy the
law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to
18 For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or
one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be
19 Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments,
and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of
heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called
great in the kingdom of heaven.
20 For I say unto you, That except your righteousness
shall exceed the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, ye shall in
no case enter into the kingdom of heaven.
Ye have heard that it was said of them
of old time, Thou shalt not kill; and whosoever shall kill shall be in
danger of the judgment:
22 But I say unto you, That whosoever is angry with his
brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment: and whosoever
shall say to his brother, Raca, shall be in danger of the council: but
whosoever shall say, Thou fool, shall be in danger of hell
23 Therefore if thou bring thy gift to the altar, and there
rememberest that thy brother hath ought against thee;
24 Leave there thy gift
before the altar, and go thy way; first be reconciled to thy brother, and
then come and offer thy gift.
25 Agree with thine adversary quickly, whiles thou art
in the way with him; lest at any time the adversary deliver thee to the
judge, and the judge deliver thee to the officer, and thou be cast into
26 Verily I say unto thee, Thou shalt by no means come out thence,
till thou hast paid the uttermost farthing.
Ye have heard that it was said by them
of old time, Thou shalt not commit adultery:
But I say unto you, That whosoever
looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her
already in his heart.
29 And if thy right eye offend thee, pluck it out, and
cast it from thee: for it is profitable for thee that one of thy members
should perish, and not that thy whole body should be cast into
if thy right hand offend thee, cut it off, and cast it from thee: for it
is profitable for thee that one of thy members should perish, and not that
thy whole body should be cast into hell.
31 It hath been said,
Whosoever shall put away his wife, let him give her a writing of
32 But I say unto you, That whosoever shall put away his wife, saving
for the cause of fornication, causeth her to commit adultery: and
whosoever shall marry her that is divorced committeth
33 Again, ye have heard that it hath been said by them of old time,
Thou shalt not forswear thyself, but shalt perform unto the Lord thine
I say unto you, Swear not at all; neither by heaven; for it is God's
Nor by the earth; for it is his footstool: neither by Jerusalem; for it is
the city of the great King.
36 Neither shalt thou swear by thy head, because thou
canst not make one hair white or black.
37 But let your
communication be, Yea, yea; Nay, nay: for whatsoever is more than these
cometh of evil.
38 Ye 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 ye resist not evil: but whosoever shall
smite thee on thy right cheek, turn to him the other also.
40 And if any man will
sue thee at the law, and take away thy coat, let him have thy cloak
whosoever shall compel thee to go a mile, go with him
42 Give to him that asketh thee, and from him that would borrow of
thee turn not thou away.
43 Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love
thy neighbour, and hate thine enemy.
But I say unto you, Love your enemies,
bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for
them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;
45 That ye may be the
children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise
on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the
46 For if ye love them which love you, what reward have ye? do not
even the publicans the same?
47 And if ye salute your brethren only, what do ye more
than others? do not even the publicans so?
Be ye therefore perfect, even as your
Father which is in heaven is perfect.
1 Take heed that ye do not your
alms before men, to be seen of them: otherwise ye have no reward of your
Father which is in heaven.
2 Therefore when thou doest thine alms, do not sound a
trumpet before thee, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the
streets, that they may have glory of men. Verily I say unto you, They have
3 But when thou doest alms, let not thy left hand know what thy right
4 That thine alms may be in secret: and thy Father which seeth in
secret himself shall reward thee openly.
5 And when thou prayest,
thou shalt not be as the hypocrites are: for they love to pray standing in
the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen of
men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.
6 But thou, when thou
prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to
thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall
reward thee openly.
7 But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the
heathen do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much
8 Be not ye therefore like unto them: for your Father knoweth what
things ye have need of, before ye ask him.
After this manner therefore pray ye: Our
Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.
10 Thy kingdom come, Thy will be
done in earth, as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily
forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.
13 And lead us not into
temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the
power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.
For if ye forgive men their trespasses,
your heavenly Father will also forgive you:
But if ye forgive not men their
trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.
16 Moreover when ye fast,
be not, as the hypocrites, of a sad countenance: for they disfigure their
faces, that they may appear unto men to fast. Verily I say unto you, They
have their reward.
17 But thou, when thou fastest, anoint thine head, and
wash thy face;
18 That thou appear not unto men to fast, but unto thy Father which is
in secret: and thy Father, which seeth in secret, shall reward thee
Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth
corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal:
20 But lay up for
yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt,
and where thieves do not break through nor steal:
21 For where your
treasure is, there will your heart be also.
The light of the body is the eye: if
therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of
if thine eye be evil, thy whole body shall be full of darkness. If
therefore the light that is in thee be darkness, how great is that
24 No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and
love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye
cannot serve God and mammon.
25 Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your
life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body,
what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than
26 Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they
reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye
not much better than they?
27 Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit
unto his stature?
28 And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the
field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they
yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed
like one of these.
30 Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field,
which to day is, and to morrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much
more clothe you, O ye of little faith?
Therefore take no thought, saying, What
shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be
32 (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your
heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these
33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and
all these things shall be added unto you.
Take therefore no thought for the
morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself.
Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.
1 Judge not,
that ye be not judged.
2 For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged:
and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you
why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother's eye, but considerest
not the beam that is in thine own eye?
4 Or how wilt thou say to thy
brother, Let me pull out the mote out of thine eye; and, behold, a beam is
in thine own eye?
5 Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and
then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother's
not that which is holy unto the dogs, neither cast ye your pearls before
swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn again and rend
and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be
opened unto you:
8 For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth;
and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.
Or what man is there of you, whom if his
son ask bread, will he give him a stone?
Or if he ask a fish, will he give him a
11 If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your
children, how much more shall your Father which is in heaven give good
things to them that ask him?
12 Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men
should do to you, do ye even so to them: for this is the law and the
13 Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is
the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in
14 Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth
unto life, and few there be that find it.
Beware of false prophets, which come to
you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening
shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs
17 Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt
tree bringeth forth evil fruit.
18 A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither
can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.
Every tree that bringeth not forth good
fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.
Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know
every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of
heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in
22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied
in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done
many wonderful works?
23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you:
depart from me, ye that work iniquity.
Therefore whosoever heareth these
sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which
built his house upon a rock:
25 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the
winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded
upon a rock.
26 And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them
not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the
the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon
that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it.
28 And it came to pass, when Jesus had ended these sayings, the
people were astonished at his doctrine:
29 For he taught them as
one having authority, and not as the scribes.
When he was come down from the mountain, great multitudes followed
2 And, behold, there came a leper and worshipped him, saying,
Lord, if thou wilt, thou canst make me clean.
3 And Jesus put forth
his hand, and touched him, saying, I
will; be thou clean. And immediately his leprosy was
4 And Jesus saith unto him, See thou tell no man; but go thy way, shew thyself to the priest,
and offer the gift that Moses commanded, for a testimony unto
5 And when Jesus was entered into
Capernaum, there came unto him a centurion, beseeching him,
saying, Lord, my servant lieth at home sick of the palsy, grievously
7 And Jesus saith unto him, I will come and heal him.
centurion answered and said, Lord, I am not worthy that thou shouldest
come under my roof: but speak the word only, and my servant shall be
9 For I am a man under authority, having soldiers under me:
and I say to this man, Go, and he goeth; and to another, Come, and he
cometh; and to my servant, Do this, and he doeth it.
10 When Jesus
heard it, he marvelled, and said to them that followed, Verily I say unto you, I have not found so great
faith, no, not in Israel.
11 And I say unto you, That many shall come from the
east and west, and shall sit down with Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, in
the kingdom of heaven.
12 But the children of the kingdom shall be cast out
into outer darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of
13 And Jesus said unto the centurion,
Go thy way; and as thou hast believed,
so be it done unto thee. And his servant was healed in
the selfsame hour.
14 And when Jesus was come into Peter's house,
he saw his wife's mother laid, and sick of a fever.
15 And he
touched her hand, and the fever left her: and she arose, and ministered
16 When the even was come, they brought unto him many
that were possessed with devils: and he cast out the spirits with his
word, and healed all that were sick:
17 That it might be fulfilled
which was spoken by Esaias the prophet, saying, Himself took our
infirmities, and bare our sicknesses.
18 Now when Jesus saw great
multitudes about him, he gave commandment to depart unto the other
19 And a certain scribe came, and said unto him, Master, I
will follow thee whithersoever thou goest.
20 And Jesus saith unto
him, The foxes have holes, and the birds
of the air have nests; but the Son of man hath not where to lay his
21 And another of his disciples said unto
him, Lord, suffer me first to go and bury my father.
22 But Jesus
said unto him, Follow me; and let the
dead bury their dead.
23 And when he was
entered into a ship, his disciples followed him.
24 And, behold,
there arose a great tempest in the sea, insomuch that the ship was covered
with the waves: but he was asleep.
25 And his disciples came to
him, and awoke him, saying, Lord, save us: we perish.
26 And he
saith unto them, Why are ye fearful, O
ye of little faith? Then he arose, and rebuked the
winds and the sea; and there was a great calm.
27 But the men
marvelled, saying, What manner of man is this, that even the winds and the
sea obey him!
28 And when he was come to the other side into the
country of the Gergesenes, there met him two possessed with devils, coming
out of the tombs, exceeding fierce, so that no man might pass by that
29 And, behold, they cried out, saying, What have we to do
with thee, Jesus, thou Son of God? art thou come hither to torment us
before the time?
30 And there was a good way off from them an herd
of many swine feeding.
31 So the devils besought him, saying, If
thou cast us out, suffer us to go away into the herd of swine.
And he said unto them, Go. And when they were come out, they went into the
herd of swine: and, behold, the whole herd of swine ran violently down a
steep place into the sea, and perished in the waters.
33 And they
that kept them fled, and went their ways into the city, and told every
thing, and what was befallen to the possessed of the devils.
And, behold, the whole city came out to meet Jesus: and when they saw him,
they besought him that he would depart out of their
1 And he entered into a ship, and
passed over, and came into his own city.
2 And, behold, they
brought to him a man sick of the palsy, lying on a bed: and Jesus seeing
their faith said unto the sick of the palsy; Son, be of good cheer; thy sins be forgiven
3 And, behold, certain of the scribes
said within themselves, This man blasphemeth.
4 And Jesus knowing
their thoughts said, Wherefore think ye
evil in your hearts?
5 For whether is easier, to say, Thy sins be forgiven
thee; or to say, Arise, and walk?
But that ye may know that the Son of man
hath power on earth to forgive sins, (then saith he to
the sick of the palsy,) Arise, take up
thy bed, and go unto thine house.
7 And he
arose, and departed to his house.
8 But when the multitudes saw it,
they marvelled, and glorified God, which had given such power unto
9 And as Jesus passed forth from thence, he saw a man, named
Matthew, sitting at the receipt of custom: and he saith unto him,
Follow me. And he
arose, and followed him.
10 And it came to pass, as Jesus sat at
meat in the house, behold, many publicans and sinners came and sat
downwith him and his disciples.
11 And when the Pharisees saw it,
they said unto his disciples, Why eateth your Master with publicans and
12 But when Jesus heard that, he said unto them,
They that be whole need not a physician,
but they that are sick.
13 But go ye and learn what that meaneth, I will have
mercy, and not sacrifice: for I am not come to call the righteous, but
sinners to repentance.
14 Then came to him the
disciples of John, saying, Why do we and the Pharisees fast oft, but thy
disciples fast not?
15 And Jesus said unto them, Can the children of the bridechamber mourn, as long
as the bridegroom is with them? but the days will come, when the
bridegroom shall be taken from them, and then shall they
man putteth a piece of new cloth unto an old garment, for that which is
put in to fill it up taketh from the garment, and the rent is made
17 Neither do men put new wine into old bottles: else the bottles
break, and the wine runneth out, and the bottles perish: but they put new
wine into new bottles, and both are preserved.
18 While he spake these things unto them, behold, there came a
certain ruler, and worshipped him, saying, My daughter is even now dead:
but come and lay thy hand upon her, and she shall live.
Jesus arose, and followed him, and so did his disciples.
behold, a woman, which was diseased with an issue of blood twelve years,
came behind him, and touched the hem of his garment:
21 For she
said within herself, If I may but touch his garment, I shall be
22 But Jesus turned him about, and when he saw her, he said,
Daughter, be of good comfort; thy faith
hath made thee whole. And the woman was made whole
from that hour.
23 And when Jesus came into the ruler's house, and
saw the minstrels and the people making a noise,
24 He said unto
them, Give place: for the mind is not
dead, but sleepeth. And they laughed him to
25 But when the people were put forth, he went in, and took
her by the hand, and the maid arose.
26 And the fame hereof went
abroad into all that land.
27 And when Jesus departed thence, two
blind men followed him, crying, and saying, Thou son of David, have mercy
28 And when he was come into the house, the blind men came
to him: and Jesus saith unto them, Believe ye that I am able to do this? They said
unto him, Yea, Lord.
29 Then touched he their eyes,
saying, According to your faith be it
30 And their eyes were opened; and Jesus
straitly charged them, saying, See that
no man know it.
31 But they, when they were
departed, spread abroad his fame in all that country.
32 As they
went out, behold, they brought to him a dumb man possessed with a
33 And when the devil was cast out, the dumb spake: and the
multitudes marvelled, saying, It was never so seen in Israel.
But the Pharisees said, He casteth out devils through the prince of the
35 And Jesus went about all the cities and villages,
teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and
healing every sickness and every disease among the people.
when he saw the multitudes, he was moved with compassion on them, because
they fainted, and were scattered abroad, as sheep having no
37 Then saith he unto
his disciples, The harvest truly is plenteous, but the labourers are
ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he will send forth labourers
into his harvest.
1 And when he had called unto him his twelve disciples, he gave
them power against unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to heal all
manner of sickness and all manner of disease.
2 Now the names of
the twelve apostles are these; The first, Simon, who is called Peter, and
Andrew his brother; James the son of Zebedee, and John his
3 Philip, and Bartholomew; Thomas, and Matthew the
publican; James the son of Alphaeus, and Lebbaeus, whose surname was
4 Simon the Canaanite, and Judas Iscariot, who also
5 These twelve Jesus sent forth, and commanded them,
saying, Go not into the way of the
Gentiles, and into any city of the Samaritans enter ye
6 But go
rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel.
7 And as ye go, preach, saying,
The kingdom of heaven is at hand.
Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise
the dead, cast out devils: freely ye have received, freely
9 Provide neither gold, nor silver, nor brass in your
10 Nor scrip for your journey, neither two coats, neither shoes, nor
yet staves: for the workman is worthy of his meat.
11 And into whatsoever city or
town ye shall enter, enquire who in it is worthy; and there abide till ye
12 And when ye come into an house, salute it.
13 And if the house be worthy,
let your peace come upon it: but if it be not worthy, let your peace
return to you.
14 And whosoever shall not receive you, nor hear your words, when ye
depart out of that house or city, shake off the dust of your
15 Verily I say unto you, It shall be more tolerable for the land of
Sodom and Gomorrha in the day of judgment, than for that
16 Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves: be ye
therefore wise as serpents, and harmless as doves.
17 But beware of men: for they
will deliver you up to the councils, and they will scourge you in their
18 And ye shall be brought before governors and kings for my sake, for
a testimony against them and the Gentiles.
But when they deliver you up, take no
thought how or what ye shall speak: for it shall be given you in that same
hour what ye shall speak.
20 For it is not ye that speak, but the Spirit of your
Father which speaketh in you.
21 And the brother shall deliver up the brother to
death, and the father the child: and the children shall rise up against
their parents, and cause them to be put to death.
22 And ye shall be hated of all
men for my name's sake: but he that endureth to the end shall be
when they persecute you in this city, flee ye into another: for verily I
say unto you, Ye shall not have gone over the cities of Israel, till the
Son of man be come.
24 The disciple is not above his master, nor the servant
above his lord.
25 It is enough for the disciple that he be as his master, and the
servant as his lord. If they have called the master of the house
Beelzebub, how much more shall they call them of his
Fear them not therefore: for there is nothing covered, that shall not be
revealed; and hid, that shall not be known.
27 What I tell you in darkness, that speak ye in
light: and what ye hear in the ear, that preach ye upon the
28 And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the
soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in
not two sparrows sold for a farthing? and one of them shall not fall on
the ground without your Father.
30 But the very hairs of your head are all
31 Fear ye not therefore, ye are of more value than many
32 Whosoever therefore shall confess me before men, him will I confess
also before my Father which is in heaven.
But whosoever shall deny me before men,
him will I also deny before my Father which is in
34 Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send
peace, but a sword.
35 For I am come to set a man at variance against his
father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter in law
against her mother in law.
36 And a man's foes shall be they of his own
37 He that loveth father or mother more than me is not worthy of me:
and he that loveth son or daughter more than me is not worthy of

that taketh not his cross, and followeth after me, is not worthy of
that findeth his life shall lose it: and he that loseth his life for my
sake shall find it.
40 He that receiveth you receiveth me, and he that
receiveth me receiveth him that sent me.
He that receiveth a prophet in the name
of a prophet shall receive a prophet's reward; and he that receiveth a
righteous man in the name of a righteous man shall receive a righteous
42 And whosoever shall give to drink unto one of these little ones a
cup of cold water only in the name of a disciple, verily I say unto you,
he shall in no wise lose his reward.
1 And it came to pass, when Jesus had made an end
of commanding his twelve disciples, he departed thence to teach and to
preach in their cities.
2 Now when John had heard in the prison the
works of Christ, he sent two of his disciples,
3 And said unto him,
Art thou he that should come, or do we look for another?
answered and said unto them, Go and shew
John again those things which ye do hear and see:
5 The blind receive their sight,
and the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed, and the deaf hear, the dead
are raised up, and the poor have the gospel preached to
blessed is he, whosoever shall not be offended in me.
7 And as they departed, Jesus began to say unto the
multitudes concerning John. What went ye
out into the wilderness to see? A reed shaken with the
what went ye out for to see? A man clothed in soft raiment? behold, they
that wear soft clothing are in kings' houses.
But what went ye out for to see? A
prophet? yea, I say unto you, and more than a prophet.
10 For this is he, of whom it is
written, Behold, I send my messenger before thy face, which shall prepare
thy way before thee.
11 Verily I say unto you, Among them that are born of
women there hath not risen a greater than John the Baptist:
notwithstanding he that is least in the kingdom of heaven is greater than
from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven
suffereth violence, and the violent take it by force.
13 For all the prophets and the
law prophesied until John.
14 And if ye will receive it, this is Elias, which was
for to come.
15 He that hath ears to hear, let him hear.
16 But whereunto shall I liken
this generation? It is like unto children sitting in the markets, and
calling unto their fellows,
17 And saying, We have piped unto you, and ye have not
danced; we have mourned unto you, and ye have not
18 For John came neither eating nor drinking, and they say, He hath a
Son of man came eating and drinking, and they say, Behold a man
gluttonous, and a winebibber, a friend of publicans and sinners. But
wisdom is justified of her children.
began he to upbraid the cities wherein most of his mighty works were done,
because they repented not:
unto thee, Chorazin! woe unto thee, Bethsaida! for if the mighty works,
which were done in you, had been done in Tyre and Sidon, they would have
repented long ago in sackcloth and ashes.
But I say unto you, It shall be more
tolerable for Tyre and Sidon at the day of judgment, than for
thou, Capernaum, which art exalted unto heaven, shalt be brought down to
hell: for if the mighty works, which have been done in thee, had been done
in Sodom, it would have remained until this day.
24 But I say unto you, That it
shall be more tolerable for the land of Sodom in the day of judgment, than
25 At that time Jesus answered and
said, I thank thee, O Father, Lord of
heaven and earth, because thou hast hid these things from the wise and
prudent, and hast revealed them unto babes.
Even so, Father: for so it seemed good
in thy sight.
27 All things are delivered unto me of my Father: and no man knoweth
the Son, but the Father; neither knoweth any man the Father, save the Son,
and he to whomsoever the Son will reveal him.
28 Come unto me, all ye that
labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
29 Take my yoke upon you, and
learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto
30 For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.
1 At that time Jesus went on the sabbath day
through the corn; and his disciples were an hungred, and began to pluck
the ears of corn and to eat.
2 But when the Pharisees saw it, they
said unto him, Behold, thy disciples do that which is not lawful to do
upon the sabbath day.
3 But he said unto them, Have ye not read what David did, when he was an
hungred, and they that were with him;
How he entered into the house of God,
and did eat the shewbread, which was not lawful for him to eat, neither
for them which were with him, but only for the
have ye not read in the law, how that on the sabbath days the priests in
the temple profane the sabbath, and are blameless?
6 But I say unto you, That in
this place is one greater than the temple.
But if ye had known what this meaneth, I
will have mercy, and not sacrifice, ye would not have condemned the
8 For the Son of man is Lord even of
the sabbath day.
9 And when he was departed thence, he went into
10 And, behold, there was a man which had his hand
withered. And they asked him, saying, Is it lawful to heal on the sabbath
days? that they might accuse him.
11 And he said unto them,
What man shall there be among you, that
shall have one sheep, and if it fall into a pit on the sabbath day, will
he not lay hold on it, and lift it out?
How much then is a man better than a
sheep? Wherefore it is lawful to do well on the sabbath
Then saith he to the man, Stretch forth thine hand. And he stretched it forth; and it was
restored whole, like as the other.
14 Then the
Pharisees went out, and held a council against him, how they might destroy
15 But when Jesus knew it, he withdrew himself from thence:
and great multitudes followed him, and he healed them all;
charged them that they should not make him known:
17 That it might
be fulfilled which was spoken by Esaias the prophet, saying,
Behold my servant, whom I have chosen; my beloved, in whom my soul is well
pleased: I will put my spirit upon him, and he shall shew judgment to the
19 He shall not strive, nor cry; neither shall any man
hear his voice in the streets.
20 A bruised reed shall he not
break, and smoking flax shall he not quench, till he send forth judgment
21 And in his name shall the Gentiles
22 Then was brought unto him one possessed with a devil,
blind, and dumb: and he healed him, insomuch that the blind and dumb both
spake and saw.
23 And all the people were amazed, and said, Is not
this the son of David?
24 But when the Pharisees heard it, they
said, This fellow doth not cast out devils, but by Beelzebub the prince of
25 And Jesus knew their thoughts, and said unto them,
Every kingdom divided against itself is
brought to desolation; and every city or house divided against itself
shall not stand:
26 And if Satan cast out Satan, he is divided against himself; how
shall then his kingdom stand?
27 And if I by Beelzebub cast out devils, by whom do
your children cast them out? therefore they shall be your
28 But if I cast out devils by the Spirit of God, then the kingdom of
God is come unto you.
29 Or else how can one enter into a strong man's house,
and spoil his goods, except he first bind the strong man? and then he will
spoil his house.
30 He that is not with me is against me; and he that gathereth not
with me scattereth abroad.
31 Wherefore I say unto you, All manner of sin and
blasphemy shall be forgiven unto men: but the blasphemy against the Holy
Ghost shall not be forgiven unto men.
And whosoever speaketh a word against
the Son of man, it shall be forgiven him: but whosoever speaketh against
the Holy Ghost, it shall not be forgiven him, neither in this world,
neither in the world to come.
33 Either make the tree good, and his fruit good; or
else make the tree corrupt, and his fruit corrupt: for the tree is known
by his fruit.
34 O generation of vipers, how can ye, being evil, speak good things?
for out of the abundance of the heart the mouth
A good man out of the good treasure of the heart bringeth forth good
things: and an evil man out of the evil treasure bringeth forth evil
36 But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they
shall give account thereof in the day of judgment.
37 For by thy words thou shalt be
justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned.
38 Then certain of the scribes and of the Pharisees answered,
saying, Master, we would see a sign from thee.
39 But he answered
and said unto them,: An evil and
adulterous generation seeketh after a sign; and there shall no sign be
given to it, but the sign of the prophet Jonas:
40 For as Jonas was three days
and three nights in the whale's belly; so shall the Son of man be three
days and three nights in the heart of the earth.
41 The men of Nineveh shall rise
in judgment with this generation, and shall condemn it: because they
repented at the preaching of Jonas; and, behold, a greater than Jonas is
queen of the south shall rise up in the judgment with this generation, and
shall condemn it: for she came from the uttermost parts of the earth to
hear the wisdom of Solomon;and, behold, a greater than Solomon is
the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walketh through dry places,
seeking rest, and findeth none.
44 Then he saith, I will return into my house from
whence I came out; and when he is come, he findeth it empty, swept, and
45 Then goeth he, and taketh with himself seven other spirits more
wicked than himself, and they enter in and dwell there: and the last state
of that man is worse than the first. Even so shall it be also unto this
46 While he yet talked to
the people, behold, his mother and his brethren stood without, desiring to
speak with him.
47 Then one said unto him, Behold, thy mother and
thy brethren stand without, desiring to speak with thee.
48 But he
answered and said unto him that told him, Who is my mother? and who are my brethren?
49 And he stretched forth his hand toward his disciples,
and said, Behold my mother and my
For whosoever shall do the will of my Father which is in heaven, the same
is my brother, and sister, and mother.
1 The same day went Jesus out of the house, and sat by
the sea side.
2 And great multitudes were gathered together unto
him, so that he went into a ship, and sat; and the whole multitude stood
on the shore.
3 And he spake many things unto them in parables,
saying, Behold, a sower went forth to
when he sowed, some seeds fell by the way side, and the fowls came and
devoured them up:
5 Some fell upon stony places, where they had not much earth: and
forthwith they sprung up, because they had no deepness of
when the sun was up, they were scorched; and because they had no root,
they withered away.
7 And some fell among thorns; and the thorns sprung up,
and choked them:
8 But other fell into good ground, and brought forth fruit, some an
hundredfold, some sixtyfold, some thirtyfold.
Who hath ears to hear, let him
10 And the disciples came, and said unto
him, Why speakest thou unto them in parables?
11 He answered and
said unto them, Because it is given unto
you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it is not
whosoever hath, to him shall be given, and he shall have more abundance:
but whosoever hath not, from him shall be taken away even that he
13 Therefore speak I to them in parables: because they seeing see not;
and hearing they hear not, neither do they understand.
14 And in them is fulfilled the
prophecy of Esaias, which saith, By hearing ye shall hear, and shall not
understand; and seeing ye shall see, and shall not
15 For this people's heart is waxed gross, and their ears are dull of
hearing, and their eyes they have closed; lest at any time they should see
with their eyes and hear with their ears, and should understand with their
heart, and should be converted, and I should heal
blessed are your eyes, for they see: and your ears, for they
verily I say unto you, That many prophets and righteous men have desired
to see those things which ye see, and have not seen them; and to hear
those things which ye hear, and have not heard them.
18 Hear ye therefore the parable
of the sower.
19 When any one heareth the word of the kingdom, and understandeth it
not, then cometh the wicked one, and catcheth away that which was sown in
his heart. This is he which received seed by the way
he that received the seed into stony places, the same is he that heareth
the word, and anon with joy receiveth it;
Yet hath he not root in himself, but
dureth for a while: for when tribulation or persecution ariseth because of
the word, by and by he is offended.
He also that received seed among the
thorns is he that heareth the word; and the care of this world, and the
deceitfulness of riches, choke the word, and he becometh
23 But he that received seed into the good ground is he that heareth
the word, and understandeth it; which also beareth fruit, and bringeth
forth, some an hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty.
24 Another parable put he forth unto them, saying, The kingdom of heaven is likened unto a man which
sowed good seed in his field:
25 But while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares
among the wheat, and went his way.
But when the blade was sprung up, and
brought forth fruit, then appeared the tares also.
27 So the servants of the
householder came and said unto him, Sir, didst not thou sow good seed in
thy field? from whence then hath it tares?
He said unto them, An enemy hath done
this. The servants said unto him, Wilt thou then that we go and gather
29 But he said, Nay; lest while ye gather up the tares, ye root up
also the wheat with them.
30 Let both grow together until the harvest: and in the
time of harvest I will say to the reapers, Gather ye together first the
tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them: but gather the wheat into my
31 Another parable put he forth unto
them, saying, The kingdom of heaven is
like to a grain of mustard seed, which a man took, and sowed in his
Which indeed is the least of all seeds: but when it is grown, it is the
greatest among herbs, and becometh a tree, so that the birds of the air
come and lodge in the branches thereof.
Another parable spake he unto them; The
kingdom of heaven is like unto leaven, which a woman took, and hid in
three measures of meal, till the whole was leavened.
34 All these things spake Jesus unto the multitude in parables; and
without a parable spake he not unto them:
35 That it might be
fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, saying, I will open my mouth in
parables; I will utter things which have been kept secret from the
foundation of the world.
36 Then Jesus sent the multitude away, and
went into the house: and his disciples came unto him, saying, Declare unto
us the parable of the tares of the field.
37 He answered and said
unto them, He that soweth the good seed
is the Son of man;
38 The field is the world; the good seed are the
children of the kingdom; but the tares are the children of the wicked
enemy that sowed them is the devil; the harvest is the end of the world;
and the reapers are the angels.
40 As therefore the tares are gathered and burned in the
fire; so shall it be in the end of this world.
41 The Son of man shall send
forth his angels, and they shall gather out of his kingdom all things that
offend, and them which do iniquity;
42 And shall cast them into a
furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of
43 Then shall the righteous shine forth as the sun in the kingdom of
their Father. Who hath ears to hear, let him hear.
44 Again, the kingdom of heaven
is like unto treasure hid in a field; the which when a man hath found, he
hideth, and for joy thereof goeth and selleth all that he hath, and buyeth
45 Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a merchant man, seeking
46 Who, when he had found one pearl of great price, went and sold all
that he had, and bought it.
47 Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a net,
that was cast into the sea, and gathered of every
48 Which, when it was full, they drew to shore, and sat down, and
gathered the good into vessels, but cast the bad away.
49 So shall it be at the end of
the world: the angels shall come forth, and sever the wicked from among
And shall cast them into the furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and
gnashing of teeth.
51 Jesus saith unto them,
Have ye understood all these things?
They say unto him, Yea, Lord.
52 Then said he
unto them, Therefore every scribe which
is instructed unto the kingdom of heaven is like unto a man that is an
householder, which bringeth forth out of his treasure things new and
53 And it came to pass, that when Jesus
had finished these parables, he departed thence.
54 And when he was
come into his own country, he taught them in their synagogue, insomuch
that they were astonished, and said, Whence hath this man this wisdom, and
these mighty works?
55 Is not this the carpenter's son? is not his
mother called Mary? and his brethren, James, and Joses, and Simon, and
56 And his sisters, are they not all with us? Whence then
hath this man all these things?
57 And they were offended in him.
But Jesus said unto them, A prophet is
not without honour, save in his own country, and in his own
58 And he did not many mighty works
there because of their unbelief.
that time Herod the tetrarch heard of the fame of Jesus,
2 And said
unto his servants, This is John the Baptist; he is risen from the dead;
and therefore mighty works do shew forth themselves in him.
Herod had laid hold on John, and bound him, and put him in prison for
Herodias' sake, his brother Philip's wife.
4 For John said unto
him, It is not lawful for thee to have her.
5 And when he would
have put him to death, he feared the multitude, because they counted him
as a prophet.
6 But when Herod's birthday was kept, the daughter of
Herodias danced before them, and pleased Herod.
7 Whereupon he
promised with an oath to give her whatsoever she would ask.
she, being before instructed of her mother, said, Give me here John
Baptist's head in a charger.
9 And the king was sorry: nevertheless
for the oath's sake, and them which sat with him at meat, he commanded it
to be given her.
10 And he sent, and beheaded John in the
11 And his head was brought in a charger, and given to the
damsel: and she brought it to her mother.
12 And his disciples
came, and took up the body, and buried it, and went and told
13 When Jesus heard of it, he departed thence by ship into a
desert place apart: and when the people had heard thereof, they followed
him on foot out of the cities.
14 And Jesus went forth, and saw a
great multitude, and was moved with compassion toward them, and he healed
15 And when it was evening, his disciples came to him,
saying, This is a desert place, and the time is now past; send the
multitude away, that they may go into the villages, and buy themselves
16 But Jesus said unto them, They need not depart; give ye them to eat.
17 And they say unto him, We have here but five loaves, and two
18 He said, Bring them
hither to me.
19 And he commanded the multitude
to sit down on the grass, and took the five loaves, and the two fishes,
and looking up to heaven, he blessed, and brake, and gave the loaves to
his disciples, and the disciples to the multitude.
20 And they did
all eat, and were filled: and they took up of the fragments that remained
twelve baskets full.
21 And they that had eaten were about five
thousand men, beside women and children.
22 And straightway Jesus
constrained his disciples to get into a ship, and to go before him unto
the other side, while he sent the multitudes away.
23 And when he
had sent the multitudes away, he went up into a mountain apart to pray:
and when the evening was come, he was there alone.
24 But the ship
was now in the midst of the sea, tossed with waves: for the wind was
25 And in the fourth watch of the night Jesus went unto
them, walking on the sea.
26 And when the disciples saw him walking
on the sea, they were troubled, saying, It is a spirit; and they cried out
27 But straightway Jesus spake unto them, saying,
Be of good cheer; it is I; be not
28 And Peter answered him and said,
Lord, if it be thou, bid me come unto thee on the water.
29 And he
said, Come. And when
Peter was come down out of the ship, he walked on the water, to go to
30 But when he saw the wind boisterous, he was afraid; and
beginning to sink, he cried, saying, Lord, save me.
immediately Jesus stretched forth his hand, and caught him, and said unto
him, O thou of little faith, wherefore
didst thou doubt?
32 And when they were come
into the ship, the wind ceased.
33 Then they that were in the ship
came and worshipped him, saying, Of a truth thou art the Son of
34 And when they were gone over, they came into the land of
35 And when the men of that place had knowledge of him,
they sent out into all that country round about, and brought unto him all
that were diseased;
36 And besought him that they might only touch
the hem of his garment: and as many as touched were made perfectly
1 Then came to Jesus scribes and
were of Jerusalem, saying,
2 Why do thy
disciples transgress the tradition
of the elders? for they wash not
their hands when they eat bread.
3 But he answered and said unto
them, Why do ye
also transgress the
commandment of God by your tradition?
For God commanded, saying, Honour thy
and mother: and, He that curseth father or mother, let him

or his mother, It
is a gift, by whatsoever thou mightest be profited

be free. Thus have ye
made the commandment of God of none effect

commandments of men.
10 And he called the
multitude, and said unto them,
Hear, and understand:
11 Not that which goeth into the mouth
a man; but that which cometh out of the mouth, this defileth
12 Then came his disciples, and said
unto him, Knowest
thou that the Pharisees were offended, after they
heard this saying?
13 But he answered and said, Every plant, which
my heavenly Father hath not
planted, shall be rooted up.
14 Let them alone: they be blind leaders of
blind. And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into
15 Then answered Peter and said
unto him, Declare
unto us this parable.
16 And Jesus said,
Are ye also yet without

in at the
mouth goeth into the belly, and is cast out into the
But those things which proceed out of the mouth
come forth from the
heart; and they defile the man.
19 For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts,
adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness,
20 These are the things which defile a man: but
to eat with
unwashen hands defileth not a man.
Jesus went thence, and departed into the
coasts of Tyre and

coasts, and cried unto him, saying, Have mercy on me, O Lord,
son of David; my daughter is grievously vexed with a devil.
he answered her not a word. And his disciples
came and besought him,
saying, Send her away; for she crieth after
24 But he
answered and said, I am not sent but
the lost sheep of the house of Israel.
25 Then came she and worshipped him, saying, Lord,
26 But he answered and said, It is not meet to take
the children's bread, and to cast it to

dogs eat of

Then Jesus answered and said unto her, O

daughter was made whole from that very

sea of Galilee; and went up into a mountain, and sat
30 And great multitudes came unto him, having with
those that were lame, blind, dumb, maimed, and many others,
cast them down at Jesus' feet; and he healed them:
31 Insomuch that
the multitude wondered, when they
saw the dumb to speak, the maimed to
be whole, the lame to walk,
and the blind to see: and they
glorified the God of Israel.
32 Then Jesus called his disciples
unto him, and
said, I have compassion
on the multitude, because they continue
with me now three days, and
have nothing to eat: and I will not
send them away fasting, lest they
faint in the way.
33 And his disciples say unto
him, Whence should
we have so much bread in the wilderness, as to fill
so great a
34 And Jesus saith unto them, How many loaves have
they said, Seven, and a few little fishes.
35 And he commanded the
multitude to sit down on
36 And he took the seven
loaves and the fishes,
and gave thanks, and brake them, and gave to
his disciples, and
the disciples to the multitude.
37 And they
did all eat, and were filled: and they
took up of the broken meat that
was left seven baskets full.
38 And they that did eat were four
beside women and children.
39 And he sent away
the multitude, and took ship,
and came into the coasts of

tempting desired him that he would shew them a sign from
2 He answered and said unto them, When it is evening,
ye say, It will be fair
weather: for the sky is red.
3 And in the morning, It will be foul weather
day: for the sky is red and lowering. O ye hypocrites, ye
discern the face of the sky; but can ye not discern the signs
4 A wicked and adulterous generation seeketh after
a sign; and
there shall no sign be given unto it, but the sign
of the prophet
Jonas. And he left them, and departed.
when his disciples were come to the other
side, they had forgotten to
6 Then Jesus said unto them, Take heed and beware
of the leaven of the Pharisees and of the
7 And they reasoned among
themselves, saying, It
is because we have taken no bread.
Which when Jesus perceived, he said unto them,
O ye of little faith, why reason ye among yourselves,
ye have brought no bread?
Do ye not yet understand, neither
five loaves of the five thousand, and how many baskets ye
10 Neither the seven loaves of the four thousand,
and how many
baskets ye took up?
11 How is it that ye do not understand that I
it not to you concerning bread, that ye should beware of the
of the Pharisees and of the Sadducees?
12 Then understood they how that he bade them not
beware of the
leaven of bread, but of the doctrine of the Pharisees
and of the
13 When Jesus came into the coasts of Caesarea
he asked his disciples, saying, Whom do men say that I the Son
14 And they said, Some say that thou art
Baptist: some, Elias; and others, Jeremias, or one of the
15 He saith unto them, But whom say ye that I am?
16 And Simon
Peter answered and said, Thou art the
Christ, the Son of the living
17 And Jesus answered and said unto him, Blessed
art thou, Simon Barjona: for flesh and
blood hath not revealed
it unto thee, but my Father which is in
18 And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter,
and upon this
rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell
shall not prevail
19 And I will give unto thee 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
20 Then charged he his disciples that
tell no man that he was Jesus the Christ.
that time forth began Jesus to shew unto
his disciples, how that he
must go unto Jerusalem, and suffer
many things of the elders and chief
priests and scribes, and be
killed, and be raised again the third
22 Then Peter took him, and began to rebuke
saying, Be it far from thee, Lord: this shall not be unto
23 But he turned, and said unto Peter, Get thee
behind me, Satan: thou art an offence
unto me: for thou savourest
not the things that be of God, but those
that be of men.
24 Then said Jesus unto his
disciples, If any man
will come after
me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross,
whosoever will save his life shall lose it:
and whosoever will lose
his life for my sake shall find it.
For what is a man profited, if he shall
the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man
in exchange for his soul?
For the Son of man shall come in the
his Father with his angels; and then he shall reward every
according to his works.
28 Verily I say unto you, There be some
here, which shall not taste of death, till they see the Son
man coming in his kingdom.

and John his brother, and bringeth them up into an high

talking with him.
4 Then answered Peter, and said unto Jesus,
it is good for us to be here: if thou wilt, let us make here
tabernacles; one for thee, and one for Moses, and one for

and were sore afraid.
7 And Jesus came and touched them, and said,

9 And as they came down
from the mountain, Jesus
charged them, saying, Tell the vision to no man, until the Son
of man be
risen again from the dead.
10 And his disciples
asked him, saying, Why then
say the scribes that Elias must first
11 And Jesus answered and said unto them, Elias
truly shall first come, and restore all
12 But I say unto you, That Elias is come already,
knew him not, but have done unto him whatsoever they
shall also the Son of man suffer of them.
Then the disciples understood that he spake unto
them of John the
14 And when they were come to the multitude, there
to him a certain man, kneeling down to him, and saying,
have mercy on my son: for he is lunatick,
and sore vexed: for
ofttimes he falleth into the fire, and oft
into the water.
And I brought him to thy disciples, and they
could not cure
17 Then Jesus answered and said, O faithless and
perverse generation, how long shall I be with
you? how long shall
I suffer you? bring him hither to
18 And Jesus rebuked the devil; and he
out of him: and the child was cured from that very

Why could not we cast him out?
20 And Jesus said unto
them, Because of your

seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to
place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible
21 Howbeit this kind goeth not out but by prayer

Jesus said unto
them, The Son of man
shall be betrayed into the hands of men:
And they shall kill him, and the third
shall be raised again. And they were

received tribute money came to Peter, and said, Doth not
master pay tribute?
25 He saith, Yes. And when he was come
house, Jesus prevented him, saying, What thinkest thou, Simon?
of whom do the kings of the
earth take custom or tribute? of their
own children, or of

strangers. Jesus saith
unto him, Then
are the children free.

saying, Who is the greatest in the kingdom of

in the midst of them,
3 And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be
converted, and become as
little children, ye shall not enter into
the kingdom of
4 Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this
the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven.
5 And whoso shall receive one
such little child
in my name receiveth me.
But whoso shall offend one of these
which believe in me, it were better for him that a
hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the
7 Woe unto the world because of offences! for
must needs be that offences come; but woe to that man by whom
8 Wherefore if thy hand or thy foot offend thee,
cut them off,
and cast them from thee: it is better for thee to
enter into life halt
or maimed, rather than having two hands or
two feet to be cast into
9 And if thine eye offend thee, pluck it out, and
cast it from
thee: it is better for thee to enter into life with
one eye, rather
than having two eyes to be cast into hell fire.
10 Take heed that ye despise not
one of these little
ones; for I say unto you, That in heaven their
angels do always
behold the face of my Father which is in
11 For the Son of man is come to save that which
think ye? if a man have an hundred sheep,
and one of them be gone
astray, doth he not leave the ninety and
nine, and goeth into the
mountains, and seeketh that which is
13 And if so be that he find it,
verily I say unto
you, he rejoiceth more of that sheep, than of the
ninety and nine
which went not astray.
14 Even so it is not the will of
your Father which
is in heaven, that one of these little ones should
15 Moreover if thy brother shall trespass against
thee, go and tell
him his fault between thee and him alone: if
he shall hear thee, thou
hast gained thy brother.
16 But if he will not hear thee, then take with
one or two more, that in the mouth of two or three witnesses
may be established.
17 And if he shall neglect to hear them, tell it
the church: but if he neglect to hear the church, let him
be unto thee
as an heathen man and a publican.
Verily I say unto you, Whatsoever ye
on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever ye shall
on earth shall be loosed in heaven.
19 Again I say unto you, That if
two of you shall
agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall
ask, it shall
be done for them of my Father which is in
For where two or three are gathered together
in my name, there am I in
the midst of them.
21 Then came Peter to him,
and said, Lord, how oft
shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive
him? till seven
22 Jesus saith unto him, I say not unto thee, Until
seven times: but,
Until seventy times seven.
23 Therefore is the kingdom of heaven likened unto
certain king, which would take account of his
24 And when he had begun to reckon, one was brought
unto him, which
owed him ten thousand talents.
25 But forasmuch as he had not to pay, his
commanded him to be sold, and his wife, and children, and
that he had, and payment to be made.
The servant therefore fell down, and
him, saying, Lord, have patience with me, and I will pay
27 Then the lord of that servant was moved with
loosed him, and forgave him the debt.
But the same servant went out, and found
of his fellowservants, which owed him an hundred pence: and
laid hands on him, and took him by the throat, saying, Pay
that thou owest.
29 And his fellowservant fell down at his
and besought him, saying, Have patience with me, and I will
30 And he would not: but went and cast him into
prison, till he
should pay the debt.
31 So when his fellowservants saw what was
they were very sorry, and came and told unto their lord all
32 Then his lord, after that he had called him,unto him, O thou wicked
servant, I forgave thee all that
debt, because thou desiredst
33 Shouldest not thou also have had compassion on
fellowservant, even as I had pity on thee?
34 And his lord was wroth, and
delivered him to
the tormentors, till he should pay all that was due
35 So likewise shall my heavenly Father do also
unto you, if ye
from your hearts forgive not every one his brother
1 And it came to pass, that when Jesus had finished
sayings, he departed from Galilee, and came into the coasts
2 And great multitudes followed him; and he
3 The Pharisees also came unto him, tempting
and saying unto him, Is it lawful for a man to put away his
for every cause?
4 And he answered and said unto them,
Have ye not
read, that he which made
them at the beginning made them male
5 And said, For this cause shall
a man leave father
and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they
be one flesh?
6 Wherefore they are no more twain, but one
What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put
7 They say unto him, Why did Moses
to give a writing of divorcement, and to put her
8 He saith unto them, Moses
because of the hardness
of your hearts suffered you to put away your
wives: but from the
beginning it was not so.
9 And I say unto you, Whosoever
shall put away
his wife, except it be for fornication, and shall marry
committeth adultery: and whoso marrieth her which is put
doth commit adultery.
10 His disciples
say unto him, If the case of the
man be so with his wife, it is not
good to marry.
11 But he said unto them, All men cannot receive
this saying, save they to whom it is
there are some eunuchs, which were so born
from their mother's womb:
and there are some eunuchs, which were
made eunuchs of men: and there
be eunuchs, which have made themselves
eunuchs for the kingdom of
heaven's sake. He that is able to receive
it, let him receive
13 Then were there brought unto him little
that he should put his hands on them, and pray: and the
14 But Jesus said, Suffer little children, and forbid
them not, to
come unto me: for of such is the kingdom of heaven.
15 And he laid his hands on them, and departed thence.
And, behold, one came and said unto him, Good
Master, what good thing
shall I do, that I may have eternal life?
17 And he said unto him,
Why callest thou me good?
is none good but one, that is, God: but if thou wilt enter
keep the commandments.
18 He saith unto him,
Which? Jesus said, Thou shalt
murder, Thou shalt not commit adultery, Thou shalt not steal,
shalt not bear false witness,
19 Honour thy father and thy mother: and, Thou
love thy neighbour as thyself.
young man saith unto him, All these things
have I kept from my youth
up: what lack I yet?
21 Jesus said unto him, If thou wilt be perfect,
go and sell that thou
hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt
have treasure in heaven: and
come and follow me.
22 But when the young man
heard that saying, he
went away sorrowful: for he had great

say unto you, That a rich man shall
hardly enter into the kingdom
And again I say unto you, It is easier
camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man

his disciples heard it, they were exceedingly
amazed, saying, Who then
can be saved?
26 But Jesus beheld them, and said unto them,
men this is impossible; but with
God all things are possible.
27 Then answered
Peter and said unto him, Behold,
we have forsaken all, and followed
thee; what shall we have therefore?
28 And Jesus said unto them,
Verily I say unto you,
which have followed me, in the regeneration when the Son
of man shall
sit in the throne of his glory, ye also shall sit
upon twelve thrones,
judging the twelve tribes of Israel.
And every one that hath forsaken houses,
or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or
children, or lands,
for my name's sake, shall receive an
hundredfold, and shall inherit
30 But many that are first shall
be last; and the
last shall be first.
1 For the
kingdom of heaven is like unto a man
that is an householder, which went
out early in the morning to
hire labourers into his
2 And when he had agreed with the labourers for
a penny a day, he
sent them into his vineyard.
3 And he went out about the third hour, and
others standing idle in the marketplace,
4 And said unto them; Go ye also
into the vineyard,
and whatsoever is right I will give you. And
they went their way.
5 Again he went out about the sixth and ninth
and did likewise.
6 And about the eleventh hour he went out, and
others standing idle, and saith unto them, Why stand ye
here all the
7 They say unto him, Because no man hath hired
us. He saith unto
them, Go ye also into the vineyard; and whatsoever
is right, that shall
8 So when even was come, the lord of the vineyard
saith unto his
steward, Call the labourers, and give them their
hire, beginning from
the last unto the first.
9 And when they came that were hired about
eleventh hour, they received every man a penny.
10 But when the first came, they
supposed that they
should have received more; and they likewise
received every man
11 And when they had received it, they
against the goodman of the house,
12 Saying, These last have
wrought but one hour,
and thou hast made them equal unto us, which
have borne the burden
and heat of the day.
13 But he answered one of them,
and said, Friend,
I do thee no wrong: didst not thou agree with me
for a penny?
14 Take that thine is, and go thy way: I will give
unto this last,
even as unto thee.
15 Is it not lawful for me to do what I will
mine own? Is thine eye evil, because I am
the last shall be first, and the first last:
for many be called,
but few chosen.
17 And Jesus going up to
Jerusalem took the twelve
disciples apart in the way, and said unto
18 Behold, we go up to
Jerusalem; and the Son of
man shall be betrayed unto the chief priests
and unto the scribes,
and they shall condemn him to
shall deliver him to the Gentiles to mock,
and to scourge, and to
crucify him: and the third day he shall
20 Then came to him the mother of Zebedees children
sons, worshipping him, and desiring a certain thing of
And he said unto her, What wilt thou?
unto him, Grant that these my two sons
may sit, the one on thy
right hand, and the other on the left, in thy
22 But Jesus answered and said, Ye know not what
ye ask. Are ye able to drink of the cup that I
shall drink of,
and to be baptized with the baptism that I am
baptized with? They
say unto him, We are able.
23 And he saith unto them, Ye
shall drink indeed
of my cup, and be baptized with the baptism that I
with: but to sit on my right hand, and on my left, is not
to give, but it shall be given to them for whom it is
of my Father.
24 And when the ten
heard it, they were moved with
indignation against the two
25 But Jesus called them unto him, and said, Ye
know that the princes of the Gentiles exercise
dominion over them,
and they that are great exercise authority upon
it shall not be so among you: but whosoever
will be great among you,
let him be your minister;
27 And whosoever will be chief among you, let him
28 Even as the Son of man came not to be ministered
unto, but to
minister, and to give his life a ransom for many.
29 And as they departed from Jericho, a great multitude
30 And, behold, two blind men sitting by the way
they heard that Jesus passed by, cried out, saying,
Have mercy on
us, O Lord, thou son of David.
31 And the multitude rebuked them,
should hold their peace: but they cried the more, saying,
mercy on us, O Lord, thou son of David.
32 And Jesus stood
still, and called them, and said,
What will ye that I shall do unto you?
33 They say unto him, Lord, that our eyes may
34 So Jesus had compassion on them, and
their eyes: and immediately their eyes received sight, and
1 And when they drew nigh unto Jerusalem, and were
to Bethphage, unto the mount of Olives, then sent Jesus
2 Saying unto them, Go into the village over against
you, and straightway ye shall
find an ass tied, and a colt with
her: loose them, and bring them unto
3 And if
any man say ought unto you, ye shall say,
The Lord hath need of
them; and straightway he will send them.
this was done, that it might be fulfilled
which was spoken by the
5 Tell ye the daughter of Sion, Behold, thy
cometh unto thee, meek, and sitting upon an ass, and a colt
foal of an ass.
6 And the disciples went, and did as Jesus
7 And brought the ass, and the colt, and put
them their clothes, and they set him thereon.
8 And a very
great multitude spread their garments
in the way; others cut down
branches from the trees, and strawed
them in the way.
9 And the
multitudes that went before, and that
followed, cried, saying, Hosanna
to the son of David: Blessed
is he that cometh in the name of the Lord;
Hosanna in the highest.
10 And when he was come into Jerusalem, all
city was moved, saying, Who is this?
11 And the multitude
said, This is Jesus the prophet
of Nazareth of Galilee.
Jesus went into the temple of God, and cast
out all them that sold and
bought in the temple, and overthrew
the tables of the moneychangers,
and the seats of them that sold
13 And said unto them,
It is written, My house shall
called the house of prayer; but ye have made it a den of
14 And the blind and the lame came to
him in the
temple; and he healed them.
15 And when the chief
priests and scribes saw the
wonderful things that he did, and the
children crying in the temple,
and saying, Hosanna to the son of
David; they were sore displeased,
16 And said unto him, Hearest
thou what these say?
And Jesus saith unto them, Yea; have ye never read, Out of the
babes and sucklings thou hast perfected praise?
17 And he left them, and went out of the city into
he lodged there.
18 Now in the morning as he returned into the
19 And when he saw a fig tree in the way,
to it, and found nothing thereon, but leaves only, and said
it, Let no fruit grow on thee
henceforward for ever. And presently
the fig tree
20 And when the disciples saw it, they
saying, How soon is the fig tree withered
21 Jesus answered and said unto them, Verily I say
unto you, If ye have faith, and doubt
not, ye shall not only do
this which is done to the fig tree, but also
if ye shall say unto
this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast
into the sea;
it shall be done.
And all things, whatsoever ye shall ask
believing, ye shall receive.
23 And when he was come into the temple, the chief
the elders of the people came unto him as he was teaching,
said, By what authority doest thou these things? and who gave
24 And Jesus answered and said unto them, I also
will ask you one thing, which if ye tell
me, I in like wise will
tell you by what authority I do these
25 The baptism of John, whence was it? from heaven,
or of men?
And they reasoned with themselves, saying, If we
say, From heaven; he will say unto us, Why did ye not then
26 But if we shall say, Of men; we fear the
for all hold John as a prophet.
27 And they answered
Jesus, and said, We cannot
tell. And he said unto them, Neither tell I you by what authority
I do these
28 But what think ye? A certain man had two sons;
and he came
to the first, and said, Son, go work to day in
29 He answered and said, I will not: but afterward
he repented, and
he came to the second, and said likewise.
And he answered and said,
I go, sir: and went not.
31 Whether of them twain did the will of his
They say unto him, The first. Jesus
saith unto them, Verily I
you, That the publicans and the harlots go into the kingdom
32 For John came unto you in the way of righteousness,
believed him not: but the publicans and the harlots believed
ye, when ye had seen it, repented not afterward, that
ye might believe
another parable: There was a certain householder,
which planted a
vineyard, and hedged it round about, and digged
a winepress in it, and
built a tower, and let it out to husbandmen,
and went into a far
34 And when the time of the fruit drew near, he
sent his servants
to the husbandmen, that they might receive the
the husbandmen took his servants, and beat
one, and killed another, and
36 Again, he sent other servants more than the first:
did unto them likewise.
37 But last of all he sent unto them his son,
They will reverence my son.
But when the husbandmen saw the son,
among themselves, This is the heir; come, let us kill him,
let us seize on his inheritance.
And they caught him,and cast him out of
the vineyard,and slew him.
40 When the lord therefore of the vineyard
what will he do unto those husbandmen?
41 They say unto him, He will miserably destroy
men, and will let out his vineyard unto other husbandmen,
shall render him the fruits in their seasons.
42 Jesus saith unto
them, Did ye never read in
scriptures, The stone which the builders rejected, the same
become the head of the corner: this is the Lord's doing, and
is marvellous in our eyes?
Therefore say I unto you, The kingdom of
shall be taken from you, and given to a nation bringing
the fruits thereof.
44 And whosoever shall fall on this stone shall

45 And when the chief priests and
heard his parables, they perceived that he spake of
46 But when they sought to lay hands on him, they
the multitude, because they took him for a prophet.
1 And Jesus answered and spake unto them
by parables, and said,
2 The kingdom of heaven is like unto a certain
king, which made a
marriage for his son,
3 And sent forth his servants to call them that
bidden to the wedding: and they would not come.
4 Again, he sent forth other
Tell them which are bidden, Behold, I have
prepared my dinner:
my oxen and my fatlings are killed, and all
things are ready:
come unto the marriage.
5 But they made light of it, and
went their ways,
one to his farm, another to his
6 And the remnant took his servants, and entreated
spitefully, and slew them.
7 But when the king heard thereof, he was
and he sent forth his armies, and destroyed those murderers,
burned up their city.
8 Then saith he to his servants, The wedding
ready, but they which were bidden were not
ye therefore into the highways, and as many
as ye shall find, bid to
10 So those servants went out into the highways,
together all as many as they found, both bad and
good: and the wedding
was furnished with guests.
11 And when the king came in to see the
he saw there a man which had not on a wedding
12 And he saith unto him, Friend, how camest thou
in hither not
having a wedding garment? And he was speechless.
13 Then said the king to the
servants, Bind him
hand and foot, and take him away, and cast him into

went the Pharisees, and took counsel how
they might entangle him in his
16 And they sent out unto him their disciples with
Herodians, saying, Master, we know that thou art true, and
way of God in truth, neither carest thou for any
man: for thou
regardest not the person of men.
17 Tell us therefore, What
thinkest thou? Is it
lawful to give tribute unto Caesar, or
Jesus perceived their wickedness, and said,
Why tempt ye me, ye hypocrites?
19 Show me the tribute money.
And they brought unto
him a penny.
20 And he
saith unto them, Whose is this image
21 They say unto him,
Caesar's. Then saith he unto
them, Render therefore unto Caesar the things which are
and unto God the things that are
22 When they had heard these words, they
and left him, and went their way.
23 The same day
came to him the Sadducees, which
say that there is no resurrection, and
24 Saying, Master, Moses said, If a man die,
no children, his brother shall marry his wife, and raise up
unto his brother.
25 Now there were with us seven brethren:
first, when he had married a wife, deceased, and, having no
left his wife unto his brother:
26 Likewise the
second also, and the third, unto
27 And last of all
the woman died also.
28 Therefore in the resurrection whose wife
she be of the seven? for they all had her.
answered and said unto them, Ye do
not knowing the scriptures, nor the power of
in the resurrection they neither marry, nor
are given in marriage, but
are as the angels of God in heaven.
But as touching the resurrection of the
have ye not read that which was spoken unto you by God,
am the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac,
and the God of Jacob?
God is not the God of the dead, but of
33 And when the multitude heard this, they were
34 But when the Pharisees had heard that he
put the Sadducees to silence, they were gathered
35 Then one of them, which was a lawyer, asked him
question, tempting him, and saying,
36 Master, which is the great
commandment in the
37 Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord
thy God with all thy
heart, and with all thy soul, and with all
is the first and great commandment.
39 And the second is like unto
it, Thou shalt love
thy neighbour as thyself.
40 On these two commandments hang
all the law and
41 While the
Pharisees were gathered together, Jesus
What think ye of Christ? whose son
he? They say unto him, The son of
43 He saith unto them, How
then doth David in spirit
call him Lord, saying,
44 The LORD said unto my Lord,
Sit thou on my right
hand, till I make thine enemies thy
45 If David then call him Lord, how is he his son?
46 And no man was able to answer him a word, neither
man from that day forth ask him any more questions.
1 Then spake Jesus to the multitude, and to
2 Saying The
scribes and the Pharisees sit in Moses'
3 All therefore whatsoever they
bid you observe,
that observe and do; but do not ye after their
works: for they
say, and do not.
For they bind heavy burdens and grievous
borne, and lay them on men's shoulders; but they themselves
not move them with one of their fingers.
5 But all their works they do for
to be seen of
men: they make broad their phylacteries, and enlarge the
of their garments,
6 And love the uppermost rooms at feasts, and
chief seats in the synagogues,
And greetings in the markets, and to be
of men, Rabbi, Rabbi.
8 But be not ye called Rabbi: for one is your
even Christ; and all ye are brethren.
9 And call no man your father
upon the earth: for
one is your Father, which is in

11 But he that is greatest among you shall be
12 And whosoever shall exalt himself shall be abased;
that shall humble himself shall be exalted.
But woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees,
for ye shut up the kingdom of heaven against men: for
go in yourselves, neither suffer ye them that are entering
14 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites!
devour widows' houses, and for a pretence make long
therefore ye shall receive the greater

is made, ye
make him twofold more the child of hell than
16 Woe unto you, ye blind guides, which say, Whosoever
by the temple, it is nothing; but whosoever shall
swear by the gold of
the temple, he is a debtor!
17 Ye fools and blind: for whether is greater,
gold, or the temple that sanctifieth the gold?
18 And, Whosoever shall swear by
the altar, it is
nothing; but whosoever sweareth by the gift that is
upon it, he
19 Ye fools and blind: for whether is greater,
gift, or the altar that sanctifieth the gift?
20 Whoso therefore shall swear by
the altar, sweareth
by it, and by all things
And whoso shall swear by the temple, sweareth
by it, and by him that
22 And he that shall swear by heaven, sweareth by
the throne of
God, and by him that sitteth thereon.
Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees,
for ye pay tithe of mint and anise and cummin, and have
the weightier matters of the law, judgment, mercy, and
these ought ye to have done, and not to leave the other
blind guides, which strain at a gnat, and
unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites!
for ye make clean the
outside of the cup and of the platter, but
within they are full of
extortion and excess.
26 Thou blind Pharisee, cleanse first that which
within the cup and platter, that the outside of them may be
unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites!
for ye are like unto
whited sepulchres, which indeed appear beautiful
outward, but are
within full of dead men's bones, and of all
28 Even so ye also outwardly appear righteous unto
men, but within
ye are full of hypocrisy and iniquity.
Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees,
because ye build the tombs of the prophets, and garnish
of the righteous,
And say, If we had been in the days of
we would not have been partakers with them in the
blood of the
31 Wherefore ye be witnesses unto yourselves, that
are the children of them which killed the prophets.
32 Fill ye up then the measure of
33 Ye serpents, ye generation of vipers, how can
ye escape the
damnation of hell?
34 Wherefore, behold, I send unto you
and wise men, and scribes: and some of them ye shall kill
crucify; and some of them shall ye scourge in your
and persecute them from city to
upon you may come all the righteous blood
shed upon the earth, from the
blood of righteous Abel unto the
blood of Zacharias son of Barachias,
whom ye slew between the
temple and the altar.
36 Verily I say unto you, All
these things shall
come upon this generation.
37 O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, thou
that killest the
prophets, and stonest them which are sent unto thee,
would I have gathered thy children together, even as a hen
her chickens under her wings, and ye would

39 For I say unto you, Ye shall
not see me henceforth,
till ye shall say, Blessed is he that cometh
in the name of the

and his disciples came to him for to shew him the buildings
2 And Jesus said unto them, See ye not all these
things? verily I say unto
you, There shall not be left here one
stone upon another, that shall
not be thrown down.
3 And as he sat upon the
mount of Olives, the disciples
came unto him privately, saying, Tell
us, when shall these things
be? and what shall be the sign of thy
coming, and of the end of

said unto them, Take heed
that no man
5 For many shall come in my name, saying, I am
Christ; and shall

see that ye
be not troubled: for all these things must come to
pass, but the end is
7 For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom

earthquakes, in divers places.
8 All these are the beginning of
9 Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted,
kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my
then shall many be offended, and shall betray
one another, and shall
hate one another.
11 And many false prophets shall rise, and shall
because iniquity shall abound, the love of
many shall wax
he that shall endure unto the end, the same
this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached
in all the world for a
witness unto all nations; and then shall
ye therefore shall see the abomination of
desolation, spoken of by
Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy
place, (whoso readeth, let him
16 Then let them which be in Judaea flee into
17 Let him which is on the housetop not come down
to take any
thing out of his house:
18 Neither let him which is in the field return
to take his clothes.
19 And woe unto them that are with child, and to
that give suck in those days!
20 But pray ye that your flight be not in the
neither on the sabbath day:
For then shall be great tribulation,
was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no,
ever shall be.
22 And except those days should be shortened,
should no flesh be saved: but for the elect's sake those
shall be shortened.
23 Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here
Christ, or there; believe it not.
For there shall arise false Christs, and
prophets, and shall show great signs and wonders; insomuch
if it were possible, they shall deceive the very
25 Behold, I have told you before.
Wherefore if they shall say unto you,
he is in the desert; go not forth: behold, he is in the
chambers; believe it not.
For as the lightning cometh out of the
and shineth even unto the west; so shall also the coming of
Son of man be.
28 For wheresoever the carcase is, there will
eagles be gathered together.
Immediately after the tribulation of
shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her
and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the
shall be shaken:
30 And then shall appear the sign of the Son of
in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn,
they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven
and great glory.
31 And he shall send his angels with a great sound
of a trumpet,
and they shall gather together his elect from the
four winds, from one
end of heaven to the other.
32 Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When
branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that
33 So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these
know that it is near, even at the
34 Verily I say unto you, This generation shall
not pass, till all
these things be fulfilled.
35 Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my
shall not pass away.
36 But of that day and hour knoweth no man,
not the angels of heaven, but my Father
as the days of Noe were, so shall also the
coming of the Son of man
38 For as
in the days that were before the flood
they were eating and drinking,
marrying and giving in marriage,
until the day that Noe entered
into the ark,
39 And knew not until the flood came, and took them
all away; so
shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
Then shall two be in the field; the one
be taken, and the other left.
41 Two women shall be grinding at
the mill; the
one shall be taken, and the other left.
42 Watch therefore: for
ye know not what hour your
Lord doth come.
43 But know this, that if the
goodman of the house
had known in what watch the thief would come, he
would have watched,
and would not have suffered his house to be
44 Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour
as ye think not
the Son of man cometh.
45 Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom
lord hath made ruler over his household, to give them meat
46 Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he
cometh shall find
47 Verily I say unto you, That he shall make him
ruler over all his
and if that evil servant shall say in his
heart, My lord delayeth his
49 And shall begin to smite his fellowservants,
and to eat and
drink with the drunken;
50 The lord of that servant shall come in a day
he looketh not for him, and in an hour that he is not
51 And shall cut him asunder, and appoint him his
portion with the
hypocrites: there shall be weeping and gnashing
1 Then shall the kingdom
of heaven be likened unto
ten virgins, which took their lamps, and went
forth to meet the
2 And five of them were wise, and five were
3 They that were foolish took their lamps, and
took no oil with
the wise took oil in their vessels with
5 While the bridegroom tarried, they all slumbered
at midnight there was a cry made, Behold,
the bridegroom cometh; go
ye out to meet him.
7 Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed
8 And the foolish said unto the wise, Give us of
your oil; for our
lamps are gone out.
9 But the wise answered, saying, Not so; lest
be not enough for us and you: but go ye rather to them that
and buy for yourselves.
And while they went to buy, the
and they that were ready went in with him to the
the door was shut.
Afterward came also the other virgins,
Lord, Lord, open to us.
But he answered and said, Verily I say
I know you not.
Watch therefore, for ye know neither the
nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh.
14 For the kingdom of heaven is
as a man travelling
into a far country, who called his own servants,
unto them his goods.
And unto one he gave five talents, to
two, and to another one; to every man according to his
ability; and straightway took his journey.
16 Then he that had received the
five talents went
and traded with the same, and made them other five
17 And likewise he that had received two, he also
he that had received one went and digged
in the earth, and hid his
19 After a long time the lord of those servants
reckoneth with them.
20 And so he that had received five talents came
brought other five talents, saying, Lord, thou deliveredst
unto me five
talents: behold, I have gained beside them five
21 His lord said unto him, Well done, thou good
servantthou hast been faithful over a few things,
I will make thee
ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy
also that had received two talents came and
said, Lord, thou
deliveredst unto me two talents: behold, I have
gained two other
talents beside them.
23 His lord said unto him, Well done, good and
servant; thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will
thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy
he which had received the one talent came
and said, Lord, I knew thee
that thou art an hard man, reaping
where thou hast not sown, and
gathering where thou hast not strawed:
And I was afraid, and went and hid thy
in the earth: lo, there thou hast that is
lord answered and said unto him, Thou wicked
and slothful servant, thou
knewest that I reap where I sowed not,
and gather where I have not
27 Thou oughtest therefore to have put my money
to the exchangers,
and then at my coming I should have received
mine own with
28 Take therefore the talent from him, and give
it unto him which
hath ten talents.
29 For unto every one that hath shall be given,
and he shall
have abundance: but from him that hath not shall
be taken away even
that which he hath.
30 And cast ye the unprofitable servant into
darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of
31 When the Son of man shall come in his glory,
and all the
holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne
before him shall be gathered all nations:
and he shall separate
them one from another, as a shepherd divideth
his sheep from the

but the goats on the

hand, Come, ye blessed of my
Father, inherit the kingdom prepared

Lord, when saw we thee an
hungred, and fed thee? or thirsty, and
38 When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in?
or naked, and
39 Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came
the King shall answer and say unto them,
Verily I say unto you,
Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of
the least of these my brethren,
ye have done it unto me.
41 Then shall he say also unto them on the left
Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared
devil and his angels:
42 For I was an hungred, and ye gave me no
I was thirsty, and ye gave me no drink:
43 I was a stranger, and ye took
me not in: naked,
and ye clothed me not: sick, and in prison, and
ye visited me
44 Then shall they also answer him, saying,
when saw we thee an hungred, or athirst, or a stranger, or
or sick, or in prison, and did not minister unto

unto you, Inasmuch as ye did
it not to one of the least of these,
ye did it not to
these shall go away into everlasting punishment:
but the righteous
into life eternal.
1 And it came to pass, when Jesus had finished
sayings, he said unto his disciples,
2 Ye know that after two days is the feast of the
the Son of man is betrayed to be crucified.
Then assembled together the chief priests, and
the scribes, and the
elders of the people, unto the palace of
the high priest, who was
4 And consulted that they might take Jesus by
and kill him.
5 But they said, Not on the feast
day, lest there
be an uproar among the people.
6 Now when Jesus
was in Bethany, in the house of
Simon the leper,
7 There came
unto him a woman having an alabaster
box of very precious ointment, and
poured it on his head, as he
sat at meat.
8 But when his
disciples saw it, they had indignation,
saying, To what purpose is
9 For this ointment might have been sold for
and given to the poor.
10 When Jesus understood it, he
said unto them,
Why trouble ye
the woman? for she hath wrought a good work upon
11 For ye have the poor
always with you; but me
ye have not always.
12 For in that she hath poured
this ointment on
my body, she did it for my burial.
13 Verily I say unto you,
Wheresoever this gospel
shall be preached in the whole world, there
shall also this, that
this woman hath done, be told for a memorial of
14 Then one of the twelve, called Judas
went unto the chief priests,
15 And said unto
them, What will ye give me, and
I will deliver him unto you? And they
covenanted with him for
thirty pieces of silver.
16 And from
that time he sought opportunity to betray
17 Now the first
day of the feast of unleavened
bread the disciples came to Jesus,
saying unto him, Where wilt
thou that we prepare for thee to eat the
18 And he said, Go into
the city to such a man,
and say unto him, The Master saith, My time
is at hand; I will
keep the passover at thy house with my
19 And the disciples did as Jesus
them; and they made ready the passover.
when the even was come, he sat down with
21 And as
they did eat, he said, Verily I say
you, that one of you shall betray me.
22 And they were exceeding sorrowful, and began
every one of
them to say unto him, Lord, is it I?
23 And he answered and
said, He that dippeth his
me in the dish, the same shall betray me.
The Son of man goeth as it is written of
but woe unto that man by whom the Son of man is betrayed! it
been good for that man if he had not been born.
25 Then Judas, which betrayed him, answered and
said, Master, is
it I? He said unto him, Thou hast
26 And as they were eating, Jesus took
blessed it, and brake it, and gave it to the disciples, and
Take, eat; this is my
27 And he took the cup, and gave thanks,
it to them, saying, Drink ye
all of it;
28 For this is my blood of the new testament, which
is shed for
many for the remission of sins.
29 But I say unto you, I will not drink henceforth
this fruit of the vine, until that day when I drink it new
with you in
my Father's kingdom.
30 And when they had sung
an hymn, they went out
into the mount of Olives.
31 Then saith
Jesus unto them, All ye shall be
because of me this night: for it is written, I will smite
shepherd, and the sheep of the flock shall be scattered
32 But after I am risen again, I will go before
33 Peter answered and said unto him,
men shall be offended because of thee, yet will I never be
34 Jesus said unto him, Verily I say unto thee,
That this night, before the cock
crow, thou shalt deny me thrice.
35 Peter said
unto him, Though I should die with
thee, yet will I not deny thee.
Likewise also said all the disciples.
36 Then cometh Jesus with
them unto a place called
Gethsemane, and saith unto the disciples,
Sit ye here, while I
go and pray
37 And he took with him Peter and the
two sons of
Zebedee, and began to be sorrowful and very
38 Then saith he unto them, My soul is exceeding
sorrowful, even unto death: tarry ye here,
and watch with me.
39 And he went a little
farther, and fell on his
face, and prayed, saying, O my Father, if it be possible, let
this cup pass
from me: nevertheless not as I will, but as
40 And he cometh unto the
disciples, and findeth
them asleep, and saith unto Peter, What, could ye not watch with
41 Watch and pray, that ye enter not into temptation:
spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.
42 He went away again the second time, and prayed,
O my Father, if this cup may not pass
away from me, except
I drink it, thy will be done.
43 And he came and found them asleep again: for
their eyes were
44 And he left them, and went away again, and prayed
third time, saying the same words.
45 Then cometh he to his
disciples, and saith unto
on now, and take your rest: behold, the hour is at
hand, and the Son of
man is betrayed into the hands of sinners.
46 Rise, let us be
going: behold, he is at hand
that doth betray me.
47 And while he yet spake, lo, Judas, one of the
and with him a great multitude with swords and staves,
chief priests and elders of the people.
48 Now he that betrayed him
gave them a sign, saying,
Whomsoever I shall kiss, that same is he:
hold him fast.
49 And forthwith he came to Jesus, and said,
master; and kissed him.
50 And Jesus said unto him,
Friend, wherefore art
Then came they, and laid hands on Jesus and took
51 And, behold, one of them which were with Jesus
out his hand, and drew his sword, and struck a servant
of the high
priest's, and smote off his ear.
52 Then said Jesus unto
him, Put up again thy sword
place: for all they that take the sword shall perish
53 Thinkest thou that I cannot now pray to my Father,
shall presently give me more than twelve legions of
54 But how then shall the scriptures be fulfilled,
that thus it
55 In that same hour said Jesus to the multitudes,
Are ye come
out as against a thief with swords and staves for
to take me? I sat
daily with you teaching in the temple, and ye
laid no hold on
all this was done, that the scriptures of
the prophets might be
fulfilled. Then all the disciples forsook
57 And they that had laid hold on Jesus
away to Caiaphas the high priest, where the scribes and the
58 But Peter followed him afar off unto
priest's palace, and went in, and sat with the servants, to
59 Now the chief priests, and elders, and all
council, sought false witness against Jesus, to put him to
60 But found none: yea, though many false witnesses
yet found they none. At the last came two false witnesses,
said, This fellow said, I am able to destroy
the temple of God, and to
build it in three days.
62 And the high priest arose, and said unto
Answerest thou nothing? what is it which these witness
63 But Jesus held his peace, And the high
answered and said unto him, I adjure thee by the living God,
thou tell us whether thou be the Christ, the Son of God.
Jesus saith unto him, Thou hast said:
I say unto you, Hereafter shall ye see the Son of man
on the right hand of power, and coming in the clouds of
65 Then the high priest rent his
He hath spoken blasphemy; what further need have
we of witnesses?
behold, now ye have heard his blasphemy.
What think ye? They answered and said, He is
guilty of death.
Then did they spit in his face, and buffeted
him; and others smote him
with the palms of their hands,
68 Saying, Prophesy unto us, thou
Christ, Who is
he that smote thee?
69 Now Peter sat without in
the palace: and a damsel
came unto him, saying, Thou also wast with
Jesus of Galilee.
70 But he denied before them all, saying, I
not what thou sayest.
71 And when he was gone out into the
maid saw him, and said unto them that were there, This
was also with Jesus of Nazareth.
72 And again he denied
with an oath, I do not know
73 And after a while came
unto him they that stood
by, and said to Peter, Surely thou also art
one of them; for thy
speech bewrayeth thee.
74 Then began he to
curse and to swear, saying,
I know not the man. And immediately the
75 And Peter remembered the word of Jesus, which
unto him, Before the cock crow, thou
shalt deny me thrice.
And he went out, and wept
1 When the morning was come, all the chief priests
elders of the people took counsel against Jesus to put him
2 And when they had bound him, they led him away,
delivered him to Pontius Pilate the governor.
3 Then Judas, which
had betrayed him, when he saw
that he was condemned, repented himself,
and brought again the
thirty pieces of silver to the chief priests and
4 Saying, I have sinned in that I have betrayed
innocent blood. And they said, What is that to us? see thou
5 And he cast down the pieces of silver in the
departed, and went and hanged himself.
6 And the chief priests took
the silver pieces,
and said, It is not lawful for to put them into
because it is the price of blood.
7 And they
took counsel, and bought with them the
potter's field, to bury
8 Wherefore that field was called, The field
blood, unto this day.
9 Then was fulfilled that which was
spoken by Jeremy
the prophet, saying, And they took the thirty pieces
the price of him that was valued, whom they of the
Israel did value;
10 And gave them for the potter's
field, as the
Lord appointed me.
11 And Jesus stood before the
governor: and the
governor asked him, saying, Art thou the King of the
Jesus said unto him, Thou
12 And when he was accused of the chief
and elders, he answered nothing.
13 Then said Pilate
unto him, Hearest thou not how
