The Bible Online: Book 40 Matthew: 40:001:001 - 40:014:036


40:001:001 The book of the generation of Jesus Christ, the son of David,
the son of Abraham.

40:001:002 Abraham begat Isaac; and Isaac begat Jacob; and Jacob begat
Judas and his brethren;

40:001:003 And Judas begat Phares and Zara of Thamar; and Phares begat
Esrom; and Esrom begat Aram;

40:001:004 And Aram begat Aminadab; and Aminadab begat Naasson; and
Naasson begat Salmon;

40:001:005 And Salmon begat Booz of Rachab; and Booz begat Obed of Ruth;
and Obed begat Jesse;

40:001:006 And Jesse begat David the king; and David the king begat
Solomon of her that had been the wife of Urias;

40:001:007 And Solomon begat Roboam; and Roboam begat Abia; and Abia
begat Asa;

40:001:008 And Asa begat Josaphat; and Josaphat begat Joram; and Joram
begat Ozias;

40:001:009 And Ozias begat Joatham; and Joatham begat Achaz; and Achaz
begat Ezekias;

40:001:010 And Ezekias begat Manasses; and Manasses begat Amon; and Amon
begat Josias;

40:001:011 And Josias begat Jechonias and his brethren, about the time
they were carried away to Babylon:

40:001:012 And after they were brought to Babylon, Jechonias begat
Salathiel; and Salathiel begat Zorobabel;

40:001:013 And Zorobabel begat Abiud; and Abiud begat Eliakim; and
Eliakim begat Azor;

40:001:014 And Azor begat Sadoc; and Sadoc begat Achim; and Achim begat

40:001:015 And Eliud begat Eleazar; and Eleazar begat Matthan; and
Matthan begat Jacob;

40:001:016 And Jacob begat Joseph the husband of Mary, of whom was born
Jesus, who is called Christ.

40:001:017 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.

40:001:018 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.

40:001:019 Then Joseph her husband, being a just man, and not willing to
make her a publick example, was minded to put her away

40:001:020 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.

40:001:021 And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name
JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins.

40:001:022 Now all this was done, that it might be fulfilled which was
spoken of the Lord by the prophet, saying,

40:001:023 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 us.

40:001:024 Then Joseph being raised from sleep did as the angel of the
Lord had bidden him, and took unto him his wife:

40:001:025 And knew her not till she had brought forth her firstborn son:
and he called his name JESUS.

40:002:001 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

40:002:002 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 him.

40:002:003 When Herod the king had heard these things, he was troubled,
and all Jerusalem with him.

40:002:004 And when he had gathered all the chief priests and scribes of
the people together, he demanded of them where Christ should
be born.

40:002:005 And they said unto him, In Bethlehem of Judaea: for thus it is
written by the prophet,

40:002:006 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 Israel.

40:002:007 Then Herod, when he had privily called the wise men, enquired
of them diligently what time the star appeared.

40:002:008 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.

40:002:009 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.

40:002:010 When they saw the star, they rejoiced with exceeding great

40:002:011 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 myrrh.

40:002:012 And being warned of God in a dream that they should not return
to Herod, they departed into their own country another way.

40:002:013 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.

40:002:014 When he arose, he took the young child and his mother by
night, and departed into Egypt:

40:002:015 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.

40:002:016 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.

40:002:017 Then was fulfilled that which was spoken by Jeremy the
prophet, saying,

40:002:018 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 not.

40:002:019 But when Herod was dead, behold, an angel of the Lord
appeareth in a dream to Joseph in Egypt,

40:002:020 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.

40:002:021 And he arose, and took the young child and his mother, and
came into the land of Israel.

40:002:022 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:

40:002:023 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.

40:003:001 In those days came John the Baptist, preaching in the
wilderness of Judaea,

40:003:002 And saying, Repent ye: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.

40:003:003 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.

40:003:004 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.

40:003:005 Then went out to him Jerusalem, and all Judaea, and all the
region round about Jordan,

40:003:006 And were baptized of him in Jordan, confessing their sins.

40:003:007 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 to come?

40:003:008 Bring forth therefore fruits meet for repentance:

40:003:009 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.

40:003:010 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.

40:003:011 I 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:

40:003:012 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.

40:003:013 Then cometh Jesus from Galilee to Jordan unto John, to be
baptized of him.

40:003:014 But John forbad him, saying, I have need to be baptized of
thee, and comest thou to me?

40:003:015 And Jesus answering said unto him, Suffer it to be so now: for
thus it becometh us to fulfil all righteousness. Then he
suffered him.

40:003:016 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
upon him:

40:003:017 And lo a voice from heaven, saying, This is my beloved Son, in
whom I am well pleased.

40:004:001 Then was Jesus led up of the spirit into the wilderness to be
tempted of the devil.

40:004:002 And when he had fasted forty days and forty nights, he was
afterward an hungred.

40:004:003 And when the tempter came to him, he said, If thou be the Son
of God, command that these stones be made bread.

40:004:004 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.

40:004:005 Then the devil taketh him up into the holy city, and setteth
him on a pinnacle of the temple,

40:004:006 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.

40:004:007 Jesus said unto him, It is written again, Thou shalt not tempt
the Lord thy God.

40:004:008 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;

40:004:009 And saith unto him, All these things will I give thee, if thou
wilt fall down and worship me.

40:004:010 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.

40:004:011 Then the devil leaveth him, and, behold, angels came and
ministered unto him.

40:004:012 Now when Jesus had heard that John was cast into prison, he
departed into Galilee;

40:004:013 And leaving Nazareth, he came and dwelt in Capernaum, which is
upon the sea coast, in the borders of Zabulon and Nephthalim:

40:004:014 That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Esaias the
prophet, saying,

40:004:015 The land of Zabulon, and the land of Nephthalim, by the way of
the sea, beyond Jordan, Galilee of the Gentiles;

40:004:016 The people which sat in darkness saw great light; and to them
which sat in the region and shadow of death light is sprung

40:004:017 From that time Jesus began to preach, and to say, Repent: for
the kingdom of heaven is at hand.

40:004:018 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.

40:004:019 And he saith unto them, Follow me, and I will make you fishers
of men.

40:004:020 And they straightway left their nets, and followed him.

40:004:021 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 them.

40:004:022 And they immediately left the ship and their father, and
followed him.

40:004:023 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.

40:004:024 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.

40:004:025 And there followed him great multitudes of people from
Galilee, and from Decapolis, and from Jerusalem, and from
Judaea, and from beyond Jordan.

40:005:001 And seeing the multitudes, he went up into a mountain: and
when he was set, his disciples came unto him:

40:005:002 And he opened his mouth, and taught them, saying,

40:005:003 Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of

40:005:004 Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted.

40:005:005 Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth.

40:005:006 Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after
righteousness: for they shall be filled.

40:005:007 Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy.

40:005:008 Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God.

40:005:009 Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the
children of God.

40:005:010 Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness' sake:
for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

40:005:011 Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you,
and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my

40:005:012 Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in
heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before

40:005:013 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 men.

40:005:014 Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill
cannot be hid.

40:005:015 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

40:005:016 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your
good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.

40:005:017 Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets:
I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil.

40:005:018 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

40:005:019 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

40:005:020 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.

40:005:021 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

40:005:022 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 fire.

40:005:023 Therefore if thou bring thy gift to the altar, and there
rememberest that thy brother hath ought against thee;

40:005:024 Leave there thy gift before the altar, and go thy way; first
be reconciled to thy brother, and then come and offer thy

40:005:025 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 prison.

40:005:026 Verily I say unto thee, Thou shalt by no means come out
thence, till thou hast paid the uttermost farthing.

40:005:027 Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time, Thou shalt
not commit adultery:

40:005:028 But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust
after her hath committed adultery with her already in his

40:005:029 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 hell.

40:005:030 And 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.

40:005:031 It hath been said, Whosoever shall put away his wife, let him
give her a writing of divorcement:

40:005:032 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 adultery.

40:005:033 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 oaths:

40:005:034 But I say unto you, Swear not at all; neither by heaven; for
it is God's throne:

40:005:035 Nor by the earth; for it is his footstool: neither by
Jerusalem; for it is the city of the great King.

40:005:036 Neither shalt thou swear by thy head, because thou canst not
make one hair white or black.

40:005:037 But let your communication be, Yea, yea; Nay, nay: for
whatsoever is more than these cometh of evil.

40:005:038 Ye have heard that it hath been said, An eye for an eye, and a
tooth for a tooth:

40:005:039 But I say unto you, That ye resist not evil: but whosoever
shall smite thee on thy right cheek, turn to him the other

40:005:040 And if any man will sue thee at the law, and take away thy
coat, let him have thy cloak also.

40:005:041 And whosoever shall compel thee to go a mile, go with him

40:005:042 Give to him that asketh thee, and from him that would borrow
of thee turn not thou away.

40:005:043 Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy
neighbour, and hate thine enemy.

40:005:044 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;

40:005:045 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 unjust.

40:005:046 For if ye love them which love you, what reward have ye? do
not even the publicans the same?

40:005:047 And if ye salute your brethren only, what do ye more than
others? do not even the publicans so?

40:005:048 Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in
heaven is perfect.

40:006:001 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

40:006:002 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 their reward.

40:006:003 But when thou doest alms, let not thy left hand know what thy
right hand doeth:

40:006:004 That thine alms may be in secret: and thy Father which seeth
in secret himself shall reward thee openly.

40:006:005 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.

40:006:006 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

40:006:007 But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do:
for they think that they shall be heard for their much

40:006:008 Be not ye therefore like unto them: for your Father knoweth
what things ye have need of, before ye ask him.

40:006:009 After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in
heaven, Hallowed be thy name.

40:006:010 Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done in earth, as it is in

40:006:011 Give us this day our daily bread.

40:006:012 And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.

40:006:013 And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For
thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever.

40:006:014 For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father
will also forgive you:

40:006:015 But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your
Father forgive your trespasses.

40:006:016 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.

40:006:017 But thou, when thou fastest, anoint thine head, and wash thy

40:006:018 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 openly.

40:006:019 Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and
rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal:

40:006:020 But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither
moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break
through nor steal:

40:006:021 For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.

40:006:022 The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be
single, thy whole body shall be full of light.

40:006:023 But 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 darkness!

40:006:024 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.

40:006:025 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 raiment?

40:006:026 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?

40:006:027 Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his

40:006:028 And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of
the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin:

40:006:029 And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was
not arrayed like one of these.

40:006:030 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?

40:006:031 Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What
shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed?

40:006:032 (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your
heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things.

40:006:033 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness;
and all these things shall be added unto you.

40:006:034 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.

40:007:001 Judge not, that ye be not judged.

40:007:002 For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with
what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again.

40:007:003 And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother's eye,
but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye?

40:007:004 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?

40:007:005 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 eye.

40:007:006 Give 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 you.

40:007:007 Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find;
knock, and it shall be opened unto you:

40:007:008 For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh
findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.

40:007:009 Or what man is there of you, whom if his son ask bread, will
he give him a stone?

40:007:010 Or if he ask a fish, will he give him a serpent?

40:007:011 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?

40:007:012 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

40:007:013 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 thereat:

40:007:014 Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which
leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.

40:007:015 Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's
clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.

40:007:016 Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of
thorns, or figs of thistles?

40:007:017 Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a
corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit.

40:007:018 A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a
corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.

40:007:019 Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down,
and cast into the fire.

40:007:020 Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.

40:007:021 Not 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 heaven.

40:007:022 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?

40:007:023 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart
from me, ye that work iniquity.

40:007:024 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:

40:007:025 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.

40:007:026 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 sand:

40:007:027 And 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.

40:007:028 And it came to pass, when Jesus had ended these sayings, the
people were astonished at his doctrine:

40:007:029 For he taught them as one having authority, and not as the

40:008:001 When he was come down from the mountain, great multitudes
followed him.

40:008:002 And, behold, there came a leper and worshipped him, saying,
Lord, if thou wilt, thou canst make me clean.

40:008:003 And Jesus put forth his hand, and touched him, saying, I will;
be thou clean. And immediately his leprosy was cleansed.

40:008:004 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 them.

40:008:005 And when Jesus was entered into Capernaum, there came unto him
a centurion, beseeching him,

40:008:006 And saying, Lord, my servant lieth at home sick of the palsy,
grievously tormented.

40:008:007 And Jesus saith unto him, I will come and heal him.

40:008:008 The 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 healed.

40:008:009 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.

40:008:010 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.

40:008:011 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.

40:008:012 But the children of the kingdom shall be cast out into outer
darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

40:008:013 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.

40:008:014 And when Jesus was come into Peter's house, he saw his wife's
mother laid, and sick of a fever.

40:008:015 And he touched her hand, and the fever left her: and she
arose, and ministered unto them.

40:008:016 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:

40:008:017 That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Esaias the
prophet, saying, Himself took our infirmities, and bare our

40:008:018 Now when Jesus saw great multitudes about him, he gave
commandment to depart unto the other side.

40:008:019 And a certain scribe came, and said unto him, Master, I will
follow thee whithersoever thou goest.

40:008:020 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 head.

40:008:021 And another of his disciples said unto him, Lord, suffer me
first to go and bury my father.

40:008:022 But Jesus said unto him, Follow me; and let the dead bury
their dead.

40:008:023 And when he was entered into a ship, his disciples followed

40:008:024 And, behold, there arose a great tempest in the sea, insomuch
that the ship was covered with the waves: but he was asleep.

40:008:025 And his disciples came to him, and awoke him, saying, Lord,
save us: we perish.

40:008:026 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.

40:008:027 But the men marvelled, saying, What manner of man is this,
that even the winds and the sea obey him!

40:008:028 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 way.

40:008:029 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?

40:008:030 And there was a good way off from them an herd of many swine

40:008:031 So the devils besought him, saying, If thou cast us out,
suffer us to go away into the herd of swine.

40:008:032 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.

40:008:033 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.

40:008:034 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 coasts.

40:009:001 And he entered into a ship, and passed over, and came into his
own city.

40:009:002 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

40:009:003 And, behold, certain of the scribes said within themselves,
This man blasphemeth.

40:009:004 And Jesus knowing their thoughts said, Wherefore think ye evil
in your hearts?

40:009:005 For whether is easier, to say, Thy sins be forgiven thee; or
to say, Arise, and walk?

40:009:006 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.

40:009:007 And he arose, and departed to his house.

40:009:008 But when the multitudes saw it, they marvelled, and glorified
God, which had given such power unto men.

40:009:009 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.

40:009:010 And it came to pass, as Jesus sat at meat in the house,
behold, many publicans and sinners came and sat down with him
and his disciples.

40:009:011 And when the Pharisees saw it, they said unto his disciples,
Why eateth your Master with publicans and sinners?

40:009:012 But when Jesus heard that, he said unto them, They that be
whole need not a physician, but they that are sick.

40:009:013 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.

40:009:014 Then came to him the disciples of John, saying, Why do we and
the Pharisees fast oft, but thy disciples fast not?

40:009:015 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 fast.

40:009:016 No 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 worse.

40:009:017 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.

40:009:018 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

40:009:019 And Jesus arose, and followed him, and so did his disciples.

40:009:020 And, behold, a woman, which was diseased with an issue of
blood twelve years, came behind him, and touched the hem of
his garment:

40:009:021 For she said within herself, If I may but touch his garment, I
shall be whole.

40:009:022 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.

40:009:023 And when Jesus came into the ruler's house, and saw the
minstrels and the people making a noise,

40:009:024 He said unto them, Give place: for the maid is not dead, but
sleepeth. And they laughed him to scorn.

40:009:025 But when the people were put forth, he went in, and took her
by the hand, and the maid arose.

40:009:026 And the fame hereof went abroad into all that land.

40:009:027 And when Jesus departed thence, two blind men followed him,
crying, and saying, Thou son of David, have mercy on us.

40:009:028 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.

40:009:029 Then touched he their eyes, saying, According to your faith be
it unto you.

40:009:030 And their eyes were opened; and Jesus straitly charged them,
saying, See that no man know it.

40:009:031 But they, when they were departed, spread abroad his fame in
all that country.

40:009:032 As they went out, behold, they brought to him a dumb man
possessed with a devil.

40:009:033 And when the devil was cast out, the dumb spake: and the
multitudes marvelled, saying, It was never so seen in Israel.

40:009:034 But the Pharisees said, He casteth out devils through the
prince of the devils.

40:009:035 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.

40:009:036 But when he saw the multitudes, he was moved with compassion
on them, because they fainted, and were scattered abroad, as
sheep having no shepherd.

40:009:037 Then saith he unto his disciples, The harvest truly is
plenteous, but the labourers are few;

40:009:038 Pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he will send
forth labourers into his harvest.

40:010:001 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.

40:010:002 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 brother;

40:010:003 Philip, and Bartholomew; Thomas, and Matthew the publican;
James the son of Alphaeus, and Lebbaeus, whose surname was

40:010:004 Simon the Canaanite, and Judas Iscariot, who also betrayed

40:010:005 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 not:

40:010:006 But go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel.

40:010:007 And as ye go, preach, saying, The kingdom of heaven is at

40:010:008 Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out
devils: freely ye have received, freely give.

40:010:009 Provide neither gold, nor silver, nor brass in your purses,

40:010:010 Nor scrip for your journey, neither two coats, neither shoes,
nor yet staves: for the workman is worthy of his meat.

40:010:011 And into whatsoever city or town ye shall enter, enquire who
in it is worthy; and there abide till ye go thence.

40:010:012 And when ye come into an house, salute it.

40:010:013 And if the house be worthy, let your peace come upon it: but
if it be not worthy, let your peace return to you.

40:010:014 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 feet.

40:010:015 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

40:010:016 Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves: be
ye therefore wise as serpents, and harmless as doves.

40:010:017 But beware of men: for they will deliver you up to the
councils, and they will scourge you in their synagogues;

40:010:018 And ye shall be brought before governors and kings for my
sake, for a testimony against them and the Gentiles.

40:010:019 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.

40:010:020 For it is not ye that speak, but the Spirit of your Father
which speaketh in you.

40:010:021 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.

40:010:022 And ye shall be hated of all men for my name's sake: but he
that endureth to the end shall be saved.

40:010:023 But 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.

40:010:024 The disciple is not above his master, nor the servant above
his lord.

40:010:025 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

40:010:026 Fear them not therefore: for there is nothing covered, that
shall not be revealed; and hid, that shall not be known.

40:010:027 What I tell you in darkness, that speak ye in light: and what
ye hear in the ear, that preach ye upon the housetops.

40:010:028 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 hell.

40:010:029 Are not two sparrows sold for a farthing? and one of them
shall not fall on the ground without your Father.

40:010:030 But the very hairs of your head are all numbered.

40:010:031 Fear ye not therefore, ye are of more value than many

40:010:032 Whosoever therefore shall confess me before men, him will I
confess also before my Father which is in heaven.

40:010:033 But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny
before my Father which is in heaven.

40:010:034 Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to
send peace, but a sword.

40:010:035 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.

40:010:036 And a man's foes shall be they of his own household.

40:010:037 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 me.

40:010:038 And he that taketh not his cross, and followeth after me, is
not worthy of me.

40:010:039 He that findeth his life shall lose it: and he that loseth his
life for my sake shall find it.

40:010:040 He that receiveth you receiveth me, and he that receiveth me
receiveth him that sent me.

40:010:041 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
man's reward.

40:010:042 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.

40:011:001 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.

40:011:002 Now when John had heard in the prison the works of Christ, he
sent two of his disciples,

40:011:003 And said unto him, Art thou he that should come, or do we look
for another?

40:011:004 Jesus answered and said unto them, Go and shew John again
those things which ye do hear and see:

40:011:005 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 them.

40:011:006 And blessed is he, whosoever shall not be offended in me.

40:011:007 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 wind?

40:011:008 But what went ye out for to see? A man clothed in soft
raiment? behold, they that wear soft clothing are in kings'

40:011:009 But what went ye out for to see? A prophet? yea, I say unto
you, and more than a prophet.

40:011:010 For this is he, of whom it is written, Behold, I send my
messenger before thy face, which shall prepare thy way before

40:011:011 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 he.

40:011:012 And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of
heaven suffereth violence, and the violent take it by force.

40:011:013 For all the prophets and the law prophesied until John.

40:011:014 And if ye will receive it, this is Elias, which was for to

40:011:015 He that hath ears to hear, let him hear.

40:011:016 But whereunto shall I liken this generation? It is like unto
children sitting in the markets, and calling unto their

40:011:017 And saying, We have piped unto you, and ye have not danced; we
have mourned unto you, and ye have not lamented.

40:011:018 For John came neither eating nor drinking, and they say, He
hath a devil.

40:011:019 The 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.

40:011:020 Then began he to upbraid the cities wherein most of his mighty
works were done, because they repented not:

40:011:021 Woe 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

40:011:022 But I say unto you, It shall be more tolerable for Tyre and
Sidon at the day of judgment, than for you.

40:011:023 And 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.

40:011:024 But I say unto you, That it shall be more tolerable for the
land of Sodom in the day of judgment, than for thee.

40:011:025 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.

40:011:026 Even so, Father: for so it seemed good in thy sight.

40:011:027 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

40:011:028 Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I
will give you rest.

40:011:029 Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and
lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.

40:011:030 For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.

40:012:001 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.

40:012:002 But when the Pharisees saw it, they said unto him, Behold, thy
disciples do that which is not lawful to do upon the sabbath

40:012:003 But he said unto them, Have ye not read what David did, when
he was an hungred, and they that were with him;

40:012:004 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 priests?

40:012:005 Or have ye not read in the law, how that on the sabbath days
the priests in the temple profane the sabbath, and are

40:012:006 But I say unto you, That in this place is one greater than the

40:012:007 But if ye had known what this meaneth, I will have mercy, and
not sacrifice, ye would not have condemned the guiltless.

40:012:008 For the Son of man is Lord even of the sabbath day.

40:012:009 And when he was departed thence, he went into their synagogue:

40:012:010 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.

40:012:011 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?

40:012:012 How much then is a man better than a sheep? Wherefore it is
lawful to do well on the sabbath days.

40:012:013 Then saith he to the man, Stretch forth thine hand. And he
stretched it forth; and it was restored whole, like as the

40:012:014 Then the Pharisees went out, and held a council against him,
how they might destroy him.

40:012:015 But when Jesus knew it, he withdrew himself from thence: and
great multitudes followed him, and he healed them all;

40:012:016 And charged them that they should not make him known:

40:012:017 That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Esaias the
prophet, saying,

40:012:018 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 Gentiles.

40:012:019 He shall not strive, nor cry; neither shall any man hear his
voice in the streets.

40:012:020 A bruised reed shall he not break, and smoking flax shall he
not quench, till he send forth judgment unto victory.

40:012:021 And in his name shall the Gentiles trust.

40:012:022 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.

40:012:023 And all the people were amazed, and said, Is not this the son
of David?

40:012:024 But when the Pharisees heard it, they said, This fellow doth
not cast out devils, but by Beelzebub the prince of the

40:012:025 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:

40:012:026 And if Satan cast out Satan, he is divided against himself;
how shall then his kingdom stand?

40:012:027 And if I by Beelzebub cast out devils, by whom do your
children cast them out? therefore they shall be your judges.

40:012:028 But if I cast out devils by the Spirit of God, then the
kingdom of God is come unto you.

40:012:029 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.

40:012:030 He that is not with me is against me; and he that gathereth
not with me scattereth abroad.

40:012:031 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.

40:012:032 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.

40:012:033 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.

40:012:034 O generation of vipers, how can ye, being evil, speak good
things? for out of the abundance of the heart the mouth

40:012:035 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 things.

40:012:036 But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak,
they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment.

40:012:037 For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words
thou shalt be condemned.

40:012:038 Then certain of the scribes and of the Pharisees answered,
saying, Master, we would see a sign from thee.

40:012:039 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:

40:012:040 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.

40:012:041 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 here.

40:012:042 The 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 here.

40:012:043 When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walketh
through dry places, seeking rest, and findeth none.

40:012:044 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

40:012:045 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 wicked generation.

40:012:046 While he yet talked to the people, behold, his mother and his
brethren stood without, desiring to speak with him.

40:012:047 Then one said unto him, Behold, thy mother and thy brethren
stand without, desiring to speak with thee.

40:012:048 But he answered and said unto him that told him, Who is my
mother? and who are my brethren?

40:012:049 And he stretched forth his hand toward his disciples, and
said, Behold my mother and my brethren!

40:012:050 For whosoever shall do the will of my Father which is in
heaven, the same is my brother, and sister, and mother.

40:013:001 The same day went Jesus out of the house, and sat by the sea

40:013:002 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.

40:013:003 And he spake many things unto them in parables, saying,
Behold, a sower went forth to sow;

40:013:004 And when he sowed, some seeds fell by the way side, and the
fowls came and devoured them up:

40:013:005 Some fell upon stony places, where they had not much earth:
and forthwith they sprung up, because they had no deepness of

40:013:006 And when the sun was up, they were scorched; and because they
had no root, they withered away.

40:013:007 And some fell among thorns; and the thorns sprung up, and
choked them:

40:013:008 But other fell into good ground, and brought forth fruit, some
an hundredfold, some sixtyfold, some thirtyfold.

40:013:009 Who hath ears to hear, let him hear.

40:013:010 And the disciples came, and said unto him, Why speakest thou
unto them in parables?

40:013:011 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 given.

40:013:012 For 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 hath.

40:013:013 Therefore speak I to them in parables: because they seeing see
not; and hearing they hear not, neither do they understand.

40:013:014 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 perceive:

40:013:015 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 them.

40:013:016 But blessed are your eyes, for they see: and your ears, for
they hear.

40:013:017 For 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.

40:013:018 Hear ye therefore the parable of the sower.

40:013:019 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 side.

40:013:020 But he that received the seed into stony places, the same is
he that heareth the word, and anon with joy receiveth it;

40:013:021 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.

40:013:022 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 unfruitful.

40:013:023 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.

40:013:024 Another parable put he forth unto them, saying, The kingdom of
heaven is likened unto a man which sowed good seed in his

40:013:025 But while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the
wheat, and went his way.

40:013:026 But when the blade was sprung up, and brought forth fruit,
then appeared the tares also.

40:013:027 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?

40:013:028 He said unto them, An enemy hath done this. The servants said
unto him, Wilt thou then that we go and gather them up?

40:013:029 But he said, Nay; lest while ye gather up the tares, ye root
up also the wheat with them.

40:013:030 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 barn.

40:013:031 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 field:

40:013:032 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.

40:013:033 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.

40:013:034 All these things spake Jesus unto the multitude in parables;
and without a parable spake he not unto them:

40:013:035 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.

40:013:036 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.

40:013:037 He answered and said unto them, He that soweth the good seed
is the Son of man;

40:013:038 The field is the world; the good seed are the children of the
kingdom; but the tares are the children of the wicked one;

40:013:039 The enemy that sowed them is the devil; the harvest is the end
of the world; and the reapers are the angels.

40:013:040 As therefore the tares are gathered and burned in the fire; so
shall it be in the end of this world.

40:013:041 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;

40:013:042 And shall cast them into a furnace of fire: there shall be
wailing and gnashing of teeth.

40:013:043 Then shall the righteous shine forth as the sun in the kingdom
of their Father. Who hath ears to hear, let him hear.

40:013:044 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 that

40:013:045 Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a merchant man,
seeking goodly pearls:

40:013:046 Who, when he had found one pearl of great price, went and sold
all that he had, and bought it.

40:013:047 Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a net, that was cast
into the sea, and gathered of every kind:

40:013:048 Which, when it was full, they drew to shore, and sat down, and
gathered the good into vessels, but cast the bad away.

40:013:049 So shall it be at the end of the world: the angels shall come
forth, and sever the wicked from among the just,

40:013:050 And shall cast them into the furnace of fire: there shall be
wailing and gnashing of teeth.

40:013:051 Jesus saith unto them, Have ye understood all these things?
They say unto him, Yea, Lord.

40:013:052 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 old.

40:013:053 And it came to pass, that when Jesus had finished these
parables, he departed thence.

40:013:054 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?

40:013:055 Is not this the carpenter's son? is not his mother called
Mary? and his brethren, James, and Joses, and Simon, and

40:013:056 And his sisters, are they not all with us? Whence then hath
this man all these things?

40:013:057 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 house.

40:013:058 And he did not many mighty works there because of their

40:014:001 At that time Herod the tetrarch heard of the fame of Jesus,

40:014:002 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.

40:014:003 For Herod had laid hold on John, and bound him, and put him in
prison for Herodias' sake, his brother Philip's wife.

40:014:004 For John said unto him, It is not lawful for thee to have her.

40:014:005 And when he would have put him to death, he feared the
multitude, because they counted him as a prophet.

40:014:006 But when Herod's birthday was kept, the daughter of Herodias
danced before them, and pleased Herod.

40:014:007 Whereupon he promised with an oath to give her whatsoever she
would ask.

40:014:008 And she, being before instructed of her mother, said, Give me
here John Baptist's head in a charger.

40:014:009 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

40:014:010 And he sent, and beheaded John in the prison.

40:014:011 And his head was brought in a charger, and given to the
damsel: and she brought it to her mother.

40:014:012 And his disciples came, and took up the body, and buried it,
and went and told Jesus.

40:014:013 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.

40:014:014 And Jesus went forth, and saw a great multitude, and was moved
with compassion toward them, and he healed their sick.

40:014:015 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 victuals.

40:014:016 But Jesus said unto them, They need not depart; give ye them
to eat.

40:014:017 And they say unto him, We have here but five loaves, and two

40:014:018 He said, Bring them hither to me.

40:014:019 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.

40:014:020 And they did all eat, and were filled: and they took up of the
fragments that remained twelve baskets full.

40:014:021 And they that had eaten were about five thousand men, beside
women and children.

40:014:022 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.

40:014:023 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.

40:014:024 But the ship was now in the midst of the sea, tossed with
waves: for the wind was contrary.

40:014:025 And in the fourth watch of the night Jesus went unto them,
walking on the sea.

40:014:026 And when the disciples saw him walking on the sea, they were
troubled, saying, It is a spirit; and they cried out for fear.

40:014:027 But straightway Jesus spake unto them, saying, Be of good
cheer; it is I; be not afraid.

40:014:028 And Peter answered him and said, Lord, if it be thou, bid me
come unto thee on the water.

40:014:029 And he said, Come. And when Peter was come down out of the
ship, he walked on the water, to go to Jesus.

40:014:030 But when he saw the wind boisterous, he was afraid; and
beginning to sink, he cried, saying, Lord, save me.

40:014:031 And immediately Jesus stretched forth his hand, and caught
him, and said unto him, O thou of little faith, wherefore
didst thou doubt?

40:014:032 And when they were come into the ship, the wind ceased.

40:014:033 Then they that were in the ship came and worshipped him,
saying, Of a truth thou art the Son of God.

40:014:034 And when they were gone over, they came into the land of

40:014:035 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;

40:014:036 And besought him that they might only touch the hem of his
garment: and as many as touched were made perfectly whole.
