42:001:001 Forasmuch as many have taken in hand to set forth in order a
declaration of those things which are most surely believed
42:001:002 Even as they delivered them unto us, which from the beginning
were eyewitnesses, and ministers of the word;
42:001:003 It seemed good to me also, having had perfect understanding of
all things from the very first, to write unto thee in order,
most excellent Theophilus,
42:001:004 That thou mightest know the certainty of those things, wherein
thou hast been instructed.
42:001:005 THERE was in the days of Herod, the king of Judaea, a certain
priest named Zacharias, of the course of Abia: and his wife
was of the daughters of Aaron, and her name was Elisabeth.
42:001:006 And they were both righteous before God, walking in all the
commandments and ordinances of the Lord blameless.
42:001:007 And they had no child, because that Elisabeth was barren, and
they both were now well stricken in years.
42:001:008 And it came to pass, that while he executed the priest's
office before God in the order of his course,
42:001:009 According to the custom of the priest's office, his lot was to
burn incense when he went into the temple of the Lord.
42:001:010 And the whole multitude of the people were praying without at
the time of incense.
42:001:011 And there appeared unto him an angel of the Lord standing on
the right side of the altar of incense.
42:001:012 And when Zacharias saw him, he was troubled, and fear fell
42:001:013 But the angel said unto him, Fear not, Zacharias: for thy
prayer is heard; and thy wife Elisabeth shall bear thee a son,
and thou shalt call his name John.
42:001:014 And thou shalt have joy and gladness; and many shall rejoice
at his birth.
42:001:015 For he shall be great in the sight of the Lord, and shall
drink neither wine nor strong drink; and he shall be filled
with the Holy Ghost, even from his mother's womb.
42:001:016 And many of the children of Israel shall he turn to the Lord
42:001:017 And he shall go before him in the spirit and power of Elias,
to turn the hearts of the fathers to the children, and the
disobedient to the wisdom of the just; to make ready a people
prepared for the Lord.
42:001:018 And Zacharias said unto the angel, Whereby shall I know this?
for I am an old man, and my wife well stricken in years.
42:001:019 And the angel answering said unto him, I am Gabriel, that
stand in the presence of God; and am sent to speak unto thee,
and to shew thee these glad tidings.
42:001:020 And, behold, thou shalt be dumb, and not able to speak, until
the day that these things shall be performed, because thou
believest not my words, which shall be fulfilled in their
42:001:021 And the people waited for Zacharias, and marvelled that he
tarried so long in the temple.
42:001:022 And when he came out, he could not speak unto them: and they
perceived that he had seen a vision in the temple: for he
beckoned unto them, and remained speechless.
42:001:023 And it came to pass, that, as soon as the days of his
ministration were accomplished, he departed to his own house.
42:001:024 And after those days his wife Elisabeth conceived, and hid
herself five months, saying,
42:001:025 Thus hath the Lord dealt with me in the days wherein he looked
on me, to take away my reproach among men.
42:001:026 And in the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent from God
unto a city of Galilee, named Nazareth,
42:001:027 To a virgin espoused to a man whose name was Joseph, of the
house of David; and the virgin's name was Mary.
42:001:028 And the angel came in unto her, and said, Hail, thou that art
highly favoured, the Lord is with thee: blessed art thou among
42:001:029 And when she saw him, she was troubled at his saying, and cast
in her mind what manner of salutation this should be.
42:001:030 And the angel said unto her, Fear not, Mary: for thou hast
found favour with God.
42:001:031 And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth
a son, and shalt call his name JESUS.
42:001:032 He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the Highest:
and the Lord God shall give unto him the throne of his father
42:001:033 And he shall reign over the house of Jacob for ever; and of
his kingdom there shall be no end.
42:001:034 Then said Mary unto the angel, How shall this be, seeing I
know not a man?
42:001:035 And the angel answered and said unto her, The Holy Ghost shall
come upon thee, and the power of the Highest shall overshadow
thee: therefore also that holy thing which shall be born of
thee shall be called the Son of God.
42:001:036 And, behold, thy cousin Elisabeth, she hath also conceived a
son in her old age: and this is the sixth month with her, who
was called barren.
42:001:037 For with God nothing shall be impossible.
42:001:038 And Mary said, Behold the handmaid of the Lord; be it unto me
according to thy word. And the angel departed from her.
42:001:039 And Mary arose in those days, and went into the hill country
with haste, into a city of Juda;
42:001:040 And entered into the house of Zacharias, and saluted
42:001:041 And it came to pass, that, when Elisabeth heard the salutation
of Mary, the babe leaped in her womb; and Elisabeth was filled
with the Holy Ghost:
42:001:042 And she spake out with a loud voice, and said, Blessed art
thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb.
42:001:043 And whence is this to me, that the mother of my Lord should
come to me?
42:001:044 For, lo, as soon as the voice of thy salutation sounded in
mine ears, the babe leaped in my womb for joy.
42:001:045 And blessed is she that believed: for there shall be a
performance of those things which were told her from the Lord.
42:001:046 And Mary said, My soul doth magnify the Lord,
42:001:047 And my spirit hath rejoiced in God my Saviour.
42:001:048 For he hath regarded the low estate of his handmaiden: for,
behold, from henceforth all generations shall call me blessed.
42:001:049 For he that is mighty hath done to me great things; and holy
is his name.
42:001:050 And his mercy is on them that fear him from generation to
42:001:051 He hath shewed strength with his arm; he hath scattered the
proud in the imagination of their hearts.
42:001:052 He hath put down the mighty from their seats, and exalted them
of low degree.
42:001:053 He hath filled the hungry with good things; and the rich he
hath sent empty away.
42:001:054 He hath holpen his servant Israel, in remembrance of his
42:001:055 As he spake to our fathers, to Abraham, and to his seed for
42:001:056 And Mary abode with her about three months, and returned to
her own house.
42:001:057 Now Elisabeth's full time came that she should be delivered;
and she brought forth a son.
42:001:058 And her neighbours and her cousins heard how the Lord had
shewed great mercy upon her; and they rejoiced with her.
42:001:059 And it came to pass, that on the eighth day they came to
circumcise the child; and they called him Zacharias, after the
name of his father.
42:001:060 And his mother answered and said, Not so; but he shall be
42:001:061 And they said unto her, There is none of thy kindred that is
called by this name.
42:001:062 And they made signs to his father, how he would have him
42:001:063 And he asked for a writing table, and wrote, saying, His name
is John. And they marvelled all.
42:001:064 And his mouth was opened immediately, and his tongue loosed,
and he spake, and praised God.
42:001:065 And fear came on all that dwelt round about them: and all
these sayings were noised abroad throughout all the hill
country of Judaea.
42:001:066 And all they that heard them laid them up in their hearts,
saying, What manner of child shall this be! And the hand of
the Lord was with him.
42:001:067 And his father Zacharias was filled with the Holy Ghost, and
42:001:068 Blessed be the Lord God of Israel; for he hath visited and
redeemed his people,
42:001:069 And hath raised up an horn of salvation for us in the house of
his servant David;
42:001:070 As he spake by the mouth of his holy prophets, which have been
since the world began:
42:001:071 That we should be saved from our enemies, and from the hand of
all that hate us;
42:001:072 To perform the mercy promised to our fathers, and to remember
his holy covenant;
42:001:073 The oath which he sware to our father Abraham,
42:001:074 That he would grant unto us, that we being delivered out of
the hand of our enemies might serve him without fear,
42:001:075 In holiness and righteousness before him, all the days of our
42:001:076 And thou, child, shalt be called the prophet of the Highest:
for thou shalt go before the face of the Lord to prepare his
42:001:077 To give knowledge of salvation unto his people by the
remission of their sins,
42:001:078 Through the tender mercy of our God; whereby the dayspring
from on high hath visited us,
42:001:079 To give light to them that sit in darkness and in the shadow
of death, to guide our feet into the way of peace.
42:001:080 And the child grew, and waxed strong in spirit, and was in the
deserts till the day of his shewing unto Israel.
42:002:001 And it came to pass in those days, that there went out a
decree from Caesar Augustus that all the world should be
42:002:002 (And this taxing was first made when Cyrenius was governor of
42:002:003 And all went to be taxed, every one into his own city.
42:002:004 And Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of
Nazareth, into Judaea, unto the city of David, which is called
Bethlehem; (because he was of the house and lineage of David:)
42:002:005 To be taxed with Mary his espoused wife, being great with
42:002:006 And so it was, that, while they were there, the days were
accomplished that she should be delivered.
42:002:007 And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in
swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was
no room for them in the inn.
42:002:008 And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the
field, keeping watch over their flock by night.
42:002:009 And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory
of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid.
42:002:010 And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring
you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.
42:002:011 For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour,
which is Christ the Lord.
42:002:012 And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe
wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.
42:002:013 And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the
heavenly host praising God, and saying,
42:002:014 Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will
42:002:015 And it came to pass, as the angels were gone away from them
into heaven, the shepherds said one to another, Let us now go
even unto Bethlehem, and see this thing which is come to pass,
which the Lord hath made known unto us.
42:002:016 And they came with haste, and found Mary, and Joseph, and the
babe lying in a manger.
42:002:017 And when they had seen it, they made known abroad the saying
which was told them concerning this child.
42:002:018 And all they that heard it wondered at those things which were
told them by the shepherds.
42:002:019 But Mary kept all these things, and pondered them in her
42:002:020 And the shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for
all the things that they had heard and seen, as it was told
42:002:021 And when eight days were accomplished for the circumcising of
the child, his name was called JESUS, which was so named of
the angel before he was conceived in the womb.
42:002:022 And when the days of her purification according to the law of
Moses were accomplished, they brought him to Jerusalem, to
present him to the Lord;
42:002:023 (As it is written in the law of the LORD, Every male that
openeth the womb shall be called holy to the Lord;)
42:002:024 And to offer a sacrifice according to that which is said in
the law of the Lord, A pair of turtledoves, or two young
42:002:025 And, behold, there was a man in Jerusalem, whose name was
Simeon; and the same man was just and devout, waiting for the
consolation of Israel: and the Holy Ghost was upon him.
42:002:026 And it was revealed unto him by the Holy Ghost, that he should
not see death, before he had seen the Lord's Christ.
42:002:027 And he came by the Spirit into the temple: and when the
parents brought in the child Jesus, to do for him after the
custom of the law,
42:002:028 Then took he him up in his arms, and blessed God, and said,
42:002:029 Lord, now lettest thou thy servant depart in peace, according
to thy word:
42:002:030 For mine eyes have seen thy salvation,
42:002:031 Which thou hast prepared before the face of all people;
42:002:032 A light to lighten the Gentiles, and the glory of thy people
42:002:033 And Joseph and his mother marvelled at those things which were
spoken of him.
42:002:034 And Simeon blessed them, and said unto Mary his mother,
Behold, this child is set for the fall and rising again of
many in Israel; and for a sign which shall be spoken against;
42:002:035 (Yea, a sword shall pierce through thy own soul also,) that
the thoughts of many hearts may be revealed.
42:002:036 And there was one Anna, a prophetess, the daughter of Phanuel,
of the tribe of Aser: she was of a great age, and had lived
with an husband seven years from her virginity;
42:002:037 And she was a widow of about fourscore and four years, which
departed not from the temple, but served God with fastings and
prayers night and day.
42:002:038 And she coming in that instant gave thanks likewise unto the
Lord, and spake of him to all them that looked for redemption
42:002:039 And when they had performed all things according to the law of
the Lord, they returned into Galilee, to their own city
42:002:040 And the child grew, and waxed strong in spirit, filled with
wisdom: and the grace of God was upon him.
42:002:041 Now his parents went to Jerusalem every year at the feast of
42:002:042 And when he was twelve years old, they went up to Jerusalem
after the custom of the feast.
42:002:043 And when they had fulfilled the days, as they returned, the
child Jesus tarried behind in Jerusalem; and Joseph and his
mother knew not of it.
42:002:044 But they, supposing him to have been in the company, went a
day's journey; and they sought him among their kinsfolk and
42:002:045 And when they found him not, they turned back again to
Jerusalem, seeking him.
42:002:046 And it came to pass, that after three days they found him in
the temple, sitting in the midst of the doctors, both hearing
them, and asking them questions.
42:002:047 And all that heard him were astonished at his understanding
42:002:048 And when they saw him, they were amazed: and his mother said
unto him, Son, why hast thou thus dealt with us? behold, thy
father and I have sought thee sorrowing.
42:002:049 And he said unto them, How is it that ye sought me? wist ye
not that I must be about my Father's business?
42:002:050 And they understood not the saying which he spake unto them.
42:002:051 And he went down with them, and came to Nazareth, and was
subject unto them: but his mother kept all these sayings in
42:002:052 And Jesus increased in wisdom and stature, and in favour with
God and man.
42:003:001 Now in the fifteenth year of the reign of Tiberius Caesar,
Pontius Pilate being governor of Judaea, and Herod being
tetrarch of Galilee, and his brother Philip tetrarch of
Ituraea and of the region of Trachonitis, and Lysanias the
tetrarch of Abilene,
42:003:002 Annas and Caiaphas being the high priests, the word of God
came unto John the son of Zacharias in the wilderness.
42:003:003 And he came into all the country about Jordan, preaching the
baptism of repentance for the remission of sins;
42:003:004 As it is written in the book of the words of Esaias the
prophet, saying, The voice of one crying in the wilderness,
Prepare ye the way of the Lord, make his paths straight.
42:003:005 Every valley shall be filled, and every mountain and hill
shall be brought low; and the crooked shall be made straight,
and the rough ways shall be made smooth;
42:003:006 And all flesh shall see the salvation of God.
42:003:007 Then said he to the multitude that came forth to be baptized
of him, O generation of vipers, who hath warned you to flee
from the wrath to come?
42:003:008 Bring forth therefore fruits worthy of repentance, and begin
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.
42:003:009 And now also the axe is laid unto the root of the trees: every
tree therefore which bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn
down, and cast into the fire.
42:003:010 And the people asked him, saying, What shall we do then?
42:003:011 He answereth and saith unto them, He that hath two coats, let
him impart to him that hath none; and he that hath meat, let
him do likewise.
42:003:012 Then came also publicans to be baptized, and said unto him,
Master, what shall we do?
42:003:013 And he said unto them, Exact no more than that which is
42:003:014 And the soldiers likewise demanded of him, saying, And what
shall we do? And he said unto them, Do violence to no man,
neither accuse any falsely; and be content with your wages.
42:003:015 And as the people were in expectation, and all men mused in
their hearts of John, whether he were the Christ, or not;
42:003:016 John answered, saying unto them all, I indeed baptize you with
water; but one mightier than I cometh, the latchet of whose
shoes I am not worthy to unloose: he shall baptize you with
the Holy Ghost and with fire:
42:003:017 Whose fan is in his hand, and he will throughly purge his
floor, and will gather the wheat into his garner; but the
chaff he will burn with fire unquenchable.
42:003:018 And many other things in his exhortation preached he unto the
42:003:019 But Herod the tetrarch, being reproved by him for Herodias his
brother Philip's wife, and for all the evils which Herod had
42:003:020 Added yet this above all, that he shut up John in prison.
42:003:021 Now when all the people were baptized, it came to pass, that
Jesus also being baptized, and praying, the heaven was opened,
42:003:022 And the Holy Ghost descended in a bodily shape like a dove
upon him, and a voice came from heaven, which said, Thou art
my beloved Son; in thee I am well pleased.
42:003:023 And Jesus himself began to be about thirty years of age, being
(as was supposed) the son of Joseph, which was the son of
42:003:024 Which was the son of Matthat, which was the son of Levi, which
was the son of Melchi, which was the son of Janna, which was

42:003:025 Which was the son of Mattathias, which was the son of Amos,
which was the son of Naum, which was the son of Esli, which

42:003:026 Which was the son of Maath, which was the son of Mattathias,
which was the son of Semei, which was the son of Joseph, which
was the son of Juda,
42:003:027 Which was the son of Joanna, which was the son of Rhesa, which
was the son of Zorobabel, which was the son of Salathiel,
which was the son of Neri,
42:003:028 Which was the son of Melchi, which was the son of Addi, which
was the son of Cosam, which was the son of Elmodam, which was
the son of Er,
42:003:029 Which was the son of Jose, which was the son of Eliezer, which
was the son of Jorim, which was the son of Matthat, which was
the son of Levi,
42:003:030 Which was the son of Simeon, which was the son of Juda, which
was the son of Joseph, which was the son of Jonan, which was
the son of Eliakim,
42:003:031 Which was the son of Melea, which was the son of Menan, which
was the son of Mattatha, which was the son of Nathan, which
was the son of David,
42:003:032 Which was the son of Jesse, which was the son of Obed, which
was the son of Booz, which was the son of Salmon, which was
the son of Naasson,
42:003:033 Which was the son of Aminadab, which was the son of Aram,
which was the son of Esrom, which was the son of Phares, which
was the son of Juda,
42:003:034 Which was the son of Jacob, which was the son of Isaac, which
was the son of Abraham, which was the son of Thara, which was
the son of Nachor,
42:003:035 Which was the son of Saruch, which was the son of Ragau, which
was the son of Phalec, which was the son of Heber, which was
the son of Sala,
42:003:036 Which was the son of Cainan, which was the son of Arphaxad,
which was the son of Sem, which was the son of Noe, which was
the son of Lamech,
42:003:037 Which was the son of Mathusala, which was the son of Enoch,
which was the son of Jared, which was the son of Maleleel,
which was the son of Cainan,
42:003:038 Which was the son of Enos, which was the son of Seth, which
was the son of Adam, which was the son of God.
42:004:001 And Jesus being full of the Holy Ghost returned from Jordan,
and was led by the Spirit into the wilderness,
42:004:002 Being forty days tempted of the devil. And in those days he
did eat nothing: and when they were ended, he afterward
42:004:003 And the devil said unto him, If thou be the Son of God,
command this stone that it be made bread.
42:004:004 And Jesus answered him, saying, It is written, That man shall
not live by bread alone, but by every word of God.
42:004:005 And the devil, taking him up into an high mountain, shewed
unto him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time.
42:004:006 And the devil said unto him, All this power will I give thee,
and the glory of them: for that is delivered unto me; and to
whomsoever I will I give it.
42:004:007 If thou therefore wilt worship me, all shall be thine.
42:004:008 And Jesus answered and said unto him, Get thee behind me,
Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God,
and him only shalt thou serve.
42:004:009 And he brought him to Jerusalem, and set him on a pinnacle of
the temple, and said unto him, If thou be the Son of God, cast
thyself down from hence:
42:004:010 For it is written, He shall give his angels charge over thee,
to keep thee:
42:004:011 And in their hands they shall bear thee up, lest at any time
thou dash thy foot against a stone.
42:004:012 And Jesus answering said unto him, It is said, Thou shalt not
tempt the Lord thy God.
42:004:013 And when the devil had ended all the temptation, he departed
from him for a season.
42:004:014 And Jesus returned in the power of the Spirit into Galilee:
and there went out a fame of him through all the region round
42:004:015 And he taught in their synagogues, being glorified of all.
42:004:016 And he came to Nazareth, where he had been brought up: and, as
his custom was, he went into the synagogue on the sabbath day,
and stood up for to read.
42:004:017 And there was delivered unto him the book of the prophet
Esaias. And when he had opened the book, he found the place
where it was written,
42:004:018 The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me
to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the
brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and
recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that
42:004:019 To preach the acceptable year of the Lord.
42:004:020 And he closed the book, and he gave it again to the minister,
and sat down. And the eyes of all them that were in the
synagogue were fastened on him.
42:004:021 And he began to say unto them, This day is this scripture
fulfilled in your ears.
42:004:022 And all bare him witness, and wondered at the gracious words
which proceeded out of his mouth. And they said, Is not this
42:004:023 And he said unto them, Ye will surely say unto me this
proverb, Physician, heal thyself: whatsoever we have heard
done in Capernaum, do also here in thy country.
42:004:024 And he said, Verily I say unto you, No prophet is accepted in
his own country.
42:004:025 But I tell you of a truth, many widows were in Israel in the
days of Elias, when the heaven was shut up three years and six
months, when great famine was throughout all the land;
42:004:026 But unto none of them was Elias sent, save unto Sarepta, a
city of Sidon, unto a woman that was a widow.
42:004:027 And many lepers were in Israel in the time of Eliseus the
prophet; and none of them was cleansed, saving Naaman the
42:004:028 And all they in the synagogue, when they heard these things,
were filled with wrath,
42:004:029 And rose up, and thrust him out of the city, and led him unto
the brow of the hill whereon their city was built, that they
might cast him down headlong.
42:004:030 But he passing through the midst of them went his way,
42:004:031 And came down to Capernaum, a city of Galilee, and taught them
on the sabbath days.
42:004:032 And they were astonished at his doctrine: for his word was
42:004:033 And in the synagogue there was a man, which had a spirit of an
unclean devil, and cried out with a loud voice,
42:004:034 Saying, Let us alone; what have we to do with thee, thou Jesus
of Nazareth? art thou come to destroy us? I know thee who thou
art; the Holy One of God.
42:004:035 And Jesus rebuked him, saying, Hold thy peace, and come out of
him. And when the devil had thrown him in the midst, he came
out of him, and hurt him not.
42:004:036 And they were all amazed, and spake among themselves, saying,
What a word is this! for with authority and power he
commandeth the unclean spirits, and they come out.
42:004:037 And the fame of him went out into every place of the country
42:004:038 And he arose out of the synagogue, and entered into Simon's
house. And Simon's wife's mother was taken with a great fever;
and they besought him for her.
42:004:039 And he stood over her, and rebuked the fever; and it left her:
and immediately she arose and ministered unto them.
42:004:040 Now when the sun was setting, all they that had any sick with
divers diseases brought them unto him; and he laid his hands
on every one of them, and healed them.
42:004:041 And devils also came out of many, crying out, and saying, Thou
art Christ the Son of God. And he rebuking them suffered them
not to speak: for they knew that he was Christ.
42:004:042 And when it was day, he departed and went into a desert place:
and the people sought him, and came unto him, and stayed him,
that he should not depart from them.
42:004:043 And he said unto them, I must preach the kingdom of God to
other cities also: for therefore am I sent.
42:004:044 And he preached in the synagogues of Galilee.
42:005:001 And it came to pass, that, as the people pressed upon him to
hear the word of God, he stood by the lake of Gennesaret,
42:005:002 And saw two ships standing by the lake: but the fishermen were
gone out of them, and were washing their nets.
42:005:003 And he entered into one of the ships, which was Simon's, and
prayed him that he would thrust out a little from the land.
And he sat down, and taught the people out of the ship.
42:005:004 Now when he had left speaking, he said unto Simon, Launch out
into the deep, and let down your nets for a draught.
42:005:005 And Simon answering said unto him, Master, we have toiled all
the night, and have taken nothing: nevertheless at thy word I
will let down the net.
42:005:006 And when they had this done, they inclosed a great multitude
of fishes: and their net brake.
42:005:007 And they beckoned unto their partners, which were in the other
ship, that they should come and help them. And they came, and
filled both the ships, so that they began to sink.
42:005:008 When Simon Peter saw it, he fell down at Jesus' knees, saying,
Depart from me; for I am a sinful man, O Lord.
42:005:009 For he was astonished, and all that were with him, at the
draught of the fishes which they had taken:
42:005:010 And so was also James, and John, the sons of Zebedee, which
were partners with Simon. And Jesus said unto Simon, Fear not;
from henceforth thou shalt catch men.
42:005:011 And when they had brought their ships to land, they forsook
all, and followed him.
42:005:012 And it came to pass, when he was in a certain city, behold a
man full of leprosy: who seeing Jesus fell on his face, and
besought him, saying, Lord, if thou wilt, thou canst make me
42:005:013 And he put forth his hand, and touched him, saying, I will: be
thou clean. And immediately the leprosy departed from him.
42:005:014 And he charged him to tell no man: but go, and shew thyself to
the priest, and offer for thy cleansing, according as Moses
commanded, for a testimony unto them.
42:005:015 But so much the more went there a fame abroad of him: and
great multitudes came together to hear, and to be healed by
him of their infirmities.
42:005:016 And he withdrew himself into the wilderness, and prayed.
42:005:017 And it came to pass on a certain day, as he was teaching, that
there were Pharisees and doctors of the law sitting by, which
were come out of every town of Galilee, and Judaea, and
Jerusalem: and the power of the Lord was present to heal them.
42:005:018 And, behold, men brought in a bed a man which was taken with a
palsy: and they sought means to bring him in, and to lay him
42:005:019 And when they could not find by what way they might bring him
in because of the multitude, they went upon the housetop, and
let him down through the tiling with his couch into the midst
42:005:020 And when he saw their faith, he said unto him, Man, thy sins
are forgiven thee.
42:005:021 And the scribes and the Pharisees began to reason, saying, Who
is this which speaketh blasphemies? Who can forgive sins, but
42:005:022 But when Jesus perceived their thoughts, he answering said
unto them, What reason ye in your hearts?
42:005:023 Whether is easier, to say, Thy sins be forgiven thee; or to
say, Rise up and walk?
42:005:024 But that ye may know that the Son of man hath power upon earth
to forgive sins, (he said unto the sick of the palsy,) I say
unto thee, Arise, and take up thy couch, and go into thine
42:005:025 And immediately he rose up before them, and took up that
whereon he lay, and departed to his own house, glorifying God.
42:005:026 And they were all amazed, and they glorified God, and were
filled with fear, saying, We have seen strange things to day.
42:005:027 And after these things he went forth, and saw a publican,
named Levi, sitting at the receipt of custom: and he said unto
him, Follow me.
42:005:028 And he left all, rose up, and followed him.
42:005:029 And Levi made him a great feast in his own house: and there
was a great company of publicans and of others that sat down
42:005:030 But their scribes and Pharisees murmured against his
disciples, saying, Why do ye eat and drink with publicans and
42:005:031 And Jesus answering said unto them, They that are whole need
not a physician; but they that are sick.
42:005:032 I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.
42:005:033 And they said unto him, Why do the disciples of John fast
often, and make prayers, and likewise the disciples of the
Pharisees; but thine eat and drink?
42:005:034 And he said unto them, Can ye make the children of the
bridechamber fast, while the bridegroom is with them?
42:005:035 But the days will come, when the bridegroom shall be taken
away from them, and then shall they fast in those days.
42:005:036 And he spake also a parable unto them; No man putteth a piece
of a new garment upon an old; if otherwise, then both the new
maketh a rent, and the piece that was taken out of the new
agreeth not with the old.
42:005:037 And no man putteth new wine into old bottles; else the new
wine will burst the bottles, and be spilled, and the bottles
42:005:038 But new wine must be put into new bottles; and both are
42:005:039 No man also having drunk old wine straightway desireth new:
for he saith, The old is better.
42:006:001 And it came to pass on the second sabbath after the first,
that he went through the corn fields; and his disciples
plucked the ears of corn, and did eat, rubbing them in their
42:006:002 And certain of the Pharisees said unto them, Why do ye that
which is not lawful to do on the sabbath days?
42:006:003 And Jesus answering them said, Have ye not read so much as
this, what David did, when himself was an hungred, and they
which were with him;
42:006:004 How he went into the house of God, and did take and eat the
shewbread, and gave also to them that were with him; which it
is not lawful to eat but for the priests alone?
42:006:005 And he said unto them, That the Son of man is Lord also of the
42:006:006 And it came to pass also on another sabbath, that he entered
into the synagogue and taught: and there was a man whose right
hand was withered.
42:006:007 And the scribes and Pharisees watched him, whether he would
heal on the sabbath day; that they might find an accusation
42:006:008 But he knew their thoughts, and said to the man which had the
withered hand, Rise up, and stand forth in the midst. And he
arose and stood forth.
42:006:009 Then said Jesus unto them, I will ask you one thing; Is it
lawful on the sabbath days to do good, or to do evil? to save
life, or to destroy it?
42:006:010 And looking round about upon them all, he said unto the man,
Stretch forth thy hand. And he did so: and his hand was
restored whole as the other.
42:006:011 And they were filled with madness; and communed one with
another what they might do to Jesus.
42:006:012 And it came to pass in those days, that he went out into a
mountain to pray, and continued all night in prayer to God.
42:006:013 And when it was day, he called unto him his disciples: and of
them he chose twelve, whom also he named apostles;
42:006:014 Simon, (whom he also named Peter,) and Andrew his brother,
James and John, Philip and Bartholomew,
42:006:015 Matthew and Thomas, James the son of Alphaeus, and Simon
42:006:016 And Judas the brother of James, and Judas Iscariot, which also
was the traitor.
42:006:017 And he came down with them, and stood in the plain, and the
company of his disciples, and a great multitude of people out
of all Judaea and Jerusalem, and from the sea coast of Tyre
and Sidon, which came to hear him, and to be healed of their
42:006:018 And they that were vexed with unclean spirits: and they were
42:006:019 And the whole multitude sought to touch him: for there went
virtue out of him, and healed them all.
42:006:020 And he lifted up his eyes on his disciples, and said, Blessed
be ye poor: for yours is the kingdom of God.
42:006:021 Blessed are ye that hunger now: for ye shall be filled.
Blessed are ye that weep now: for ye shall laugh.
42:006:022 Blessed are ye, when men shall hate you, and when they shall
separate you from their company, and shall reproach you, and
cast out your name as evil, for the Son of man's sake.
42:006:023 Rejoice ye in that day, and leap for joy: for, behold, your
reward is great in heaven: for in the like manner did their
fathers unto the prophets.
42:006:024 But woe unto you that are rich! for ye have received your
42:006:025 Woe unto you that are full! for ye shall hunger. Woe unto you
that laugh now! for ye shall mourn and weep.
42:006:026 Woe unto you, when all men shall speak well of you! for so did
their fathers to the false prophets.
42:006:027 But I say unto you which hear, Love your enemies, do good to
them which hate you,
42:006:028 Bless them that curse you, and pray for them which
despitefully use you.
42:006:029 And unto him that smiteth thee on the one cheek offer also the
other; and him that taketh away thy cloak forbid not to take
thy coat also.
42:006:030 Give to every man that asketh of thee; and of him that taketh
away thy goods ask them not again.
42:006:031 And as ye would that men should do to you, do ye also to them
42:006:032 For if ye love them which love you, what thank have ye? for
sinners also love those that love them.
42:006:033 And if ye do good to them which do good to you, what thank
have ye? for sinners also do even the same.
42:006:034 And if ye lend to them of whom ye hope to receive, what thank
have ye? for sinners also lend to sinners, to receive as much
42:006:035 But love ye your enemies, and do good, and lend, hoping for
nothing again; and your reward shall be great, and ye shall be
the children of the Highest: for he is kind unto the
unthankful and to the evil.
42:006:036 Be ye therefore merciful, as your Father also is merciful.
42:006:037 Judge not, and ye shall not be judged: condemn not, and ye
shall not be condemned: forgive, and ye shall be forgiven:
42:006:038 Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed
down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give
into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal
it shall be measured to you again.
42:006:039 And he spake a parable unto them, Can the blind lead the
blind? shall they not both fall into the ditch?
42:006:040 The disciple is not above his master: but every one that is
perfect shall be as his master.
42:006:041 And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother's eye,
but perceivest not the beam that is in thine own eye?
42:006:042 Either how canst thou say to thy brother, Brother, let me pull
out the mote that is in thine eye, when thou thyself beholdest
not the beam that is in thine own eye? Thou hypocrite, cast
out first the beam out of thine own eye, and then shalt thou
see clearly to pull out the mote that is in thy brother's eye.
42:006:043 For a good tree bringeth not forth corrupt fruit; neither doth
a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.
42:006:044 For every tree is known by his own fruit. For of thorns men do
not gather figs, nor of a bramble bush gather they grapes.
42:006:045 A good man out of the good treasure of his heart bringeth
forth that which is good; and an evil man out of the evil
treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is evil: for
of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaketh.
42:006:046 And why call ye me, Lord, Lord, and do not the things which I
42:006:047 Whosoever cometh to me, and heareth my sayings, and doeth
them, I will shew you to whom he is like:
42:006:048 He is like a man which built an house, and digged deep, and
laid the foundation on a rock: and when the flood arose, the
stream beat vehemently upon that house, and could not shake
it: for it was founded upon a rock.
42:006:049 But he that heareth, and doeth not, is like a man that without
a foundation built an house upon the earth; against which the
stream did beat vehemently, and immediately it fell; and the
ruin of that house was great.
42:007:001 Now when he had ended all his sayings in the audience of the
people, he entered into Capernaum.
42:007:002 And a certain centurion's servant, who was dear unto him, was
sick, and ready to die.
42:007:003 And when he heard of Jesus, he sent unto him the elders of the
Jews, beseeching him that he would come and heal his servant.
42:007:004 And when they came to Jesus, they besought him instantly,
saying, That he was worthy for whom he should do this:
42:007:005 For he loveth our nation, and he hath built us a synagogue.
42:007:006 Then Jesus went with them. And when he was now not far from
the house, the centurion sent friends to him, saying unto him,
Lord, trouble not thyself: for I am not worthy that thou
shouldest enter under my roof:
42:007:007 Wherefore neither thought I myself worthy to come unto thee:
but say in a word, and my servant shall be healed.
42:007:008 For I also am a man set under authority, having under me
soldiers, and I say unto one, Go, and he goeth; and to
another, Come, and he cometh; and to my servant, Do this, and
he doeth it.
42:007:009 When Jesus heard these things, he marvelled at him, and turned
him about, and said unto the people that followed him, I say
unto you, I have not found so great faith, no, not in Israel.
42:007:010 And they that were sent, returning to the house, found the
servant whole that had been sick.
42:007:011 And it came to pass the day after, that he went into a city
called Nain; and many of his disciples went with him, and much
42:007:012 Now when he came nigh to the gate of the city, behold, there
was a dead man carried out, the only son of his mother, and
she was a widow: and much people of the city was with her.
42:007:013 And when the Lord saw her, he had compassion on her, and said
unto her, Weep not.
42:007:014 And he came and touched the bier: and they that bare him stood
still. And he said, Young man, I say unto thee, Arise.
42:007:015 And he that was dead sat up, and began to speak. And he
delivered him to his mother.
42:007:016 And there came a fear on all: and they glorified God, saying,
That a great prophet is risen up among us; and, That God hath
visited his people.
42:007:017 And this rumour of him went forth throughout all Judaea, and
throughout all the region round about.
42:007:018 And the disciples of John shewed him of all these things.
42:007:019 And John calling unto him two of his disciples sent them to
Jesus, saying, Art thou he that should come? or look we for
42:007:020 When the men were come unto him, they said, John Baptist hath
sent us unto thee, saying, Art thou he that should come? or
look we for another?
42:007:021 And in that same hour he cured many of their infirmities and
plagues, and of evil spirits; and unto many that were blind he
42:007:022 Then Jesus answering said unto them, Go your way, and tell
John what things ye have seen and heard; how that the blind
see, the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed, the deaf hear,
the dead are raised, to the poor the gospel is preached.
42:007:023 And blessed is he, whosoever shall not be offended in me.
42:007:024 And when the messengers of John were departed, he began to
speak unto the people concerning John, What went ye out into
the wilderness for to see? A reed shaken with the wind?
42:007:025 But what went ye out for to see? A man clothed in soft
raiment? Behold, they which are gorgeously apparelled, and
live delicately, are in kings' courts.
42:007:026 But what went ye out for to see? A prophet? Yea, I say unto
you, and much more than a prophet.
42:007:027 This is he, of whom it is written, Behold, I send my messenger
before thy face, which shall prepare thy way before thee.
42:007:028 For I say unto you, Among those that are born of women there
is not a greater prophet than John the Baptist: but he that is
least in the kingdom of God is greater than he.
42:007:029 And all the people that heard him, and the publicans,
justified God, being baptized with the baptism of John.
42:007:030 But the Pharisees and lawyers rejected the counsel of God
against themselves, being not baptized of him.
42:007:031 And the Lord said, Whereunto then shall I liken the men of
this generation? and to what are they like?
42:007:032 They are like unto children sitting in the marketplace, and
calling one to another, and saying, We have piped unto you,
and ye have not danced; we have mourned to you, and ye have
42:007:033 For John the Baptist came neither eating bread nor drinking
wine; and ye say, He hath a devil.
42:007:034 The Son of man is come eating and drinking; and ye say, Behold
a gluttonous man, and a winebibber, a friend of publicans and
42:007:035 But wisdom is justified of all her children.
42:007:036 And one of the Pharisees desired him that he would eat with
him. And he went into the Pharisee's house, and sat down to
42:007:037 And, behold, a woman in the city, which was a sinner, when she
knew that Jesus sat at meat in the Pharisee's house, brought
an alabaster box of ointment,
42:007:038 And stood at his feet behind him weeping, and began to wash
his feet with tears, and did wipe them with the hairs of her
head, and kissed his feet, and anointed them with the
42:007:039 Now when the Pharisee which had bidden him saw it, he spake
within himself, saying, This man, if he were a prophet, would
have known who and what manner of woman this is that toucheth
him: for she is a sinner.
42:007:040 And Jesus answering said unto him, Simon, I have somewhat to
say unto thee. And he saith, Master, say on.
42:007:041 There was a certain creditor which had two debtors: the one
owed five hundred pence, and the other fifty.
42:007:042 And when they had nothing to pay, he frankly forgave them
both. Tell me therefore, which of them will love him most?
42:007:043 Simon answered and said, I suppose that he, to whom he forgave
most. And he said unto him, Thou hast rightly judged.
42:007:044 And he turned to the woman, and said unto Simon, Seest thou
this woman? I entered into thine house, thou gavest me no
water for my feet: but she hath washed my feet with tears, and
wiped them with the hairs of her head.
42:007:045 Thou gavest me no kiss: but this woman since the time I came
in hath not ceased to kiss my feet.
42:007:046 My head with oil thou didst not anoint: but this woman hath
anointed my feet with ointment.
42:007:047 Wherefore I say unto thee, Her sins, which are many, are
forgiven; for she loved much: but to whom little is forgiven,
the same loveth little.
42:007:048 And he said unto her, Thy sins are forgiven.
42:007:049 And they that sat at meat with him began to say within
themselves, Who is this that forgiveth sins also?
42:007:050 And he said to the woman, Thy faith hath saved thee; go in
42:008:001 And it came to pass afterward, that he went throughout every
city and village, preaching and shewing the glad tidings of
the kingdom of God: and the twelve were with him,
42:008:002 And certain women, which had been healed of evil spirits and
infirmities, Mary called Magdalene, out of whom went seven
42:008:003 And Joanna the wife of Chuza Herod's steward, and Susanna, and
many others, which ministered unto him of their substance.
42:008:004 And when much people were gathered together, and were come to
him out of every city, he spake by a parable:
42:008:005 A sower went out to sow his seed: and as he sowed, some fell
by the way side; and it was trodden down, and the fowls of the
air devoured it.
42:008:006 And some fell upon a rock; and as soon as it was sprung up, it
withered away, because it lacked moisture.
42:008:007 And some fell among thorns; and the thorns sprang up with it,
and choked it.
42:008:008 And other fell on good ground, and sprang up, and bare fruit
an hundredfold. And when he had said these things, he cried,
He that hath ears to hear, let him hear.
42:008:009 And his disciples asked him, saying, What might this parable
42:008:010 And he said, Unto you it is given to know the mysteries of the
kingdom of God: but to others in parables; that seeing they
might not see, and hearing they might not understand.
42:008:011 Now the parable is this: The seed is the word of God.
42:008:012 Those by the way side are they that hear; then cometh the
devil, and taketh away the word out of their hearts, lest they
should believe and be saved.
42:008:013 They on the rock are they, which, when they hear, receive the
word with joy; and these have no root, which for a while
believe, and in time of temptation fall away.
42:008:014 And that which fell among thorns are they, which, when they
have heard, go forth, and are choked with cares and riches and
pleasures of this life, and bring no fruit to perfection.
42:008:015 But that on the good ground are they, which in an honest and
good heart, having heard the word, keep it, and bring forth
fruit with patience.
42:008:016 No man, when he hath lighted a candle, covereth it with a
vessel, or putteth it under a bed; but setteth it on a
candlestick, that they which enter in may see the light.
42:008:017 For nothing is secret, that shall not be made manifest;
neither any thing hid, that shall not be known and come
42:008:018 Take heed therefore how ye hear: for whosoever hath, to him
shall be given; and whosoever hath not, from him shall be
taken even that which he seemeth to have.
42:008:019 Then came to him his mother and his brethren, and could not
come at him for the press.
42:008:020 And it was told him by certain which said, Thy mother and thy
brethren stand without, desiring to see thee.
42:008:021 And he answered and said unto them, My mother and my brethren
are these which hear the word of God, and do it.
42:008:022 Now it came to pass on a certain day, that he went into a ship
with his disciples: and he said unto them, Let us go over unto
the other side of the lake. And they launched forth.
42:008:023 But as they sailed he fell asleep: and there came down a storm
of wind on the lake; and they were filled with water, and were
42:008:024 And they came to him, and awoke him, saying, Master, master,
we perish. Then he arose, and rebuked the wind and the raging
of the water: and they ceased, and there was a calm.
42:008:025 And he said unto them, Where is your faith? And they being
afraid wondered, saying one to another, What manner of man is
this! for he commandeth even the winds and water, and they
42:008:026 And they arrived at the country of the Gadarenes, which is
over against Galilee.
42:008:027 And when he went forth to land, there met him out of the city
a certain man, which had devils long time, and ware no
clothes, neither abode in any house, but in the tombs.
42:008:028 When he saw Jesus, he cried out, and fell down before him, and
with a loud voice said, What have I to do with thee, Jesus,
thou Son of God most high? I beseech thee, torment me not.
42:008:029 (For he had commanded the unclean spirit to come out of the
man. For oftentimes it had caught him: and he was kept bound
with chains and in fetters; and he brake the bands, and was
driven of the devil into the wilderness.)
42:008:030 And Jesus asked him, saying, What is thy name? And he said,
Legion: because many devils were entered into him.
42:008:031 And they besought him that he would not command them to go out
into the deep.
42:008:032 And there was there an herd of many swine feeding on the
mountain: and they besought him that he would suffer them to
enter into them. And he suffered them.
42:008:033 Then went the devils out of the man, and entered into the
swine: and the herd ran violently down a steep place into the
lake, and were choked.
42:008:034 When they that fed them saw what was done, they fled, and went
and told it in the city and in the country.
42:008:035 Then they went out to see what was done; and came to Jesus,
and found the man, out of whom the devils were departed,
sitting at the feet of Jesus, clothed, and in his right mind:
and they were afraid.
42:008:036 They also which saw it told them by what means he that was
possessed of the devils was healed.
42:008:037 Then the whole multitude of the country of the Gadarenes round
about besought him to depart from them; for they were taken
with great fear: and he went up into the ship, and returned
42:008:038 Now the man out of whom the devils were departed besought him
that he might be with him: but Jesus sent him away, saying,
42:008:039 Return to thine own house, and shew how great things God hath
done unto thee. And he went his way, and published throughout
the whole city how great things Jesus had done unto him.
42:008:040 And it came to pass, that, when Jesus was returned, the people
gladly received him: for they were all waiting for him.
42:008:041 And, behold, there came a man named Jairus, and he was a ruler
of the synagogue: and he fell down at Jesus' feet, and
besought him that he would come into his house:
42:008:042 For he had one only daughter, about twelve years of age, and
she lay a dying. But as he went the people thronged him.
42:008:043 And a woman having an issue of blood twelve years, which had
spent all her living upon physicians, neither could be healed
42:008:044 Came behind him, and touched the border of his garment: and
immediately her issue of blood stanched.
42:008:045 And Jesus said, Who touched me? When all denied, Peter and
they that were with him said, Master, the multitude throng
thee and press thee, and sayest thou, Who touched me?
42:008:046 And Jesus said, Somebody hath touched me: for I perceive that
virtue is gone out of me.
42:008:047 And when the woman saw that she was not hid, she came
trembling, and falling down before him, she declared unto him
before all the people for what cause she had touched him, and
how she was healed immediately.
42:008:048 And he said unto her, Daughter, be of good comfort: thy faith
hath made thee whole; go in peace.
42:008:049 While he yet spake, there cometh one from the ruler of the
synagogue's house, saying to him, Thy daughter is dead;
trouble not the Master.
42:008:050 But when Jesus heard it, he answered him, saying, Fear not:
believe only, and she shall be made whole.
42:008:051 And when he came into the house, he suffered no man to go in,
save Peter, and James, and John, and the father and the mother
of the maiden.
42:008:052 And all wept, and bewailed her: but he said, Weep not; she is
not dead, but sleepeth.
42:008:053 And they laughed him to scorn, knowing that she was dead.
42:008:054 And he put them all out, and took her by the hand, and called,
saying, Maid, arise.
42:008:055 And her spirit came again, and she arose straightway: and he
commanded to give her meat.
42:008:056 And her parents were astonished: but he charged them that they
should tell no man what was done.
42:009:001 Then he called his twelve disciples together, and gave them
power and authority over all devils, and to cure diseases.
42:009:002 And he sent them to preach the kingdom of God, and to heal the
42:009:003 And he said unto them, Take nothing for your journey, neither
staves, nor scrip, neither bread, neither money; neither have
two coats apiece.
42:009:004 And whatsoever house ye enter into, there abide, and thence
42:009:005 And whosoever will not receive you, when ye go out of that
city, shake off the very dust from your feet for a testimony
42:009:006 And they departed, and went through the towns, preaching the
gospel, and healing every where.
42:009:007 Now Herod the tetrarch heard of all that was done by him: and
he was perplexed, because that it was said of some, that John
was risen from the dead;
42:009:008 And of some, that Elias had appeared; and of others, that one
of the old prophets was risen again.
42:009:009 And Herod said, John have I beheaded: but who is this, of whom
I hear such things? And he desired to see him.
42:009:010 And the apostles, when they were returned, told him all that
they had done. And he took them, and went aside privately into
a desert place belonging to the city called Bethsaida.
42:009:011 And the people, when they knew it, followed him: and he
received them, and spake unto them of the kingdom of God, and
healed them that had need of healing.
42:009:012 And when the day began to wear away, then came the twelve, and
said unto him, Send the multitude away, that they may go into
the towns and country round about, and lodge, and get
victuals: for we are here in a desert place.
42:009:013 But he said unto them, Give ye them to eat. And they said, We
have no more but five loaves and two fishes; except we should
go and buy meat for all this people.
42:009:014 For they were about five thousand men. And he said to his
disciples, Make them sit down by fifties in a company.
42:009:015 And they did so, and made them all sit down.
42:009:016 Then he took the five loaves and the two fishes, and looking
up to heaven, he blessed them, and brake, and gave to the
disciples to set before the multitude.
42:009:017 And they did eat, and were all filled: and there was taken up
of fragments that remained to them twelve baskets.
42:009:018 And it came to pass, as he was alone praying, his disciples
were with him: and he asked them, saying, Whom say the people
that I am?
42:009:019 They answering said, John the Baptist; but some say, Elias;
and others say, that one of the old prophets is risen again.
42:009:020 He said unto them, But whom say ye that I am? Peter answering
said, The Christ of God.
42:009:021 And he straitly charged them, and commanded them to tell no
man that thing;
42:009:022 Saying, The Son of man must suffer many things, and be
rejected of the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be
slain, and be raised the third day.
42:009:023 And he said to them all, If any man will come after me, let
him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me.
42:009:024 For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: but whosoever
will lose his life for my sake, the same shall save it.
42:009:025 For what is a man advantaged, if he gain the whole world, and
lose himself, or be cast away?
42:009:026 For whosoever shall be ashamed of me and of my words, of him
shall the Son of man be ashamed, when he shall come in his own
glory, and in his Father's, and of the holy angels.
42:009:027 But I tell you of a truth, there be some standing here, which
shall not taste of death, till they see the kingdom of God.
42:009:028 And it came to pass about an eight days after these sayings,
he took Peter and John and James, and went up into a mountain
42:009:029 And as he prayed, the fashion of his countenance was altered,
and his raiment was white and glistering.
42:009:030 And, behold, there talked with him two men, which were Moses
42:009:031 Who appeared in glory, and spake of his decease which he
should accomplish at Jerusalem.
42:009:032 But Peter and they that were with him were heavy with sleep:
and when they were awake, they saw his glory, and the two men
that stood with him.
42:009:033 And it came to pass, as they departed from him, Peter said
unto Jesus, Master, it is good for us to be here: and let us
make three tabernacles; one for thee, and one for Moses, and
one for Elias: not knowing what he said.
42:009:034 While he thus spake, there came a cloud, and overshadowed
them: and they feared as they entered into the cloud.
42:009:035 And there came a voice out of the cloud, saying, This is my
beloved Son: hear him.
42:009:036 And when the voice was past, Jesus was found alone. And they
kept it close, and told no man in those days any of those
things which they had seen.
42:009:037 And it came to pass, that on the next day, when they were come
down from the hill, much people met him.
42:009:038 And, behold, a man of the company cried out, saying, Master, I
beseech thee, look upon my son: for he is mine only child.
42:009:039 And, lo, a spirit taketh him, and he suddenly crieth out; and
it teareth him that he foameth again, and bruising him hardly
departeth from him.
42:009:040 And I besought thy disciples to cast him out; and they could
42:009:041 And Jesus answering said, O faithless and perverse generation,
how long shall I be with you, and suffer you? Bring thy son
42:009:042 And as he was yet a coming, the devil threw him down, and tare
him. And Jesus rebuked the unclean spirit, and healed the
child, and delivered him again to his father.
42:009:043 And they were all amazed at the mighty power of God. But while
they wondered every one at all things which Jesus did, he said
unto his disciples,
42:009:044 Let these sayings sink down into your ears: for the Son of man
shall be delivered into the hands of men.
42:009:045 But they understood not this saying, and it was hid from them,
that they perceived it not: and they feared to ask him of that
42:009:046 Then there arose a reasoning among them, which of them should
42:009:047 And Jesus, perceiving the thought of their heart, took a
child, and set him by him,
42:009:048 And said unto them, Whosoever shall receive this child in my
name receiveth me: and whosoever shall receive me receiveth
him that sent me: for he that is least among you all, the same
shall be great.
42:009:049 And John answered and said, Master, we saw one casting out
devils in thy name; and we forbad him, because he followeth
not with us.
42:009:050 And Jesus said unto him, Forbid him not: for he that is not
against us is for us.
42:009:051 And it came to pass, when the time was come that he should be
received up, he stedfastly set his face to go to Jerusalem,
42:009:052 And sent messengers before his face: and they went, and
entered into a village of the Samaritans, to make ready for
42:009:053 And they did not receive him, because his face was as though
he would go to Jerusalem.
42:009:054 And when his disciples James and John saw this, they said,
Lord, wilt thou that we command fire to come down from heaven,
and consume them, even as Elias did?
42:009:055 But he turned, and rebuked them, and said, Ye know not what
manner of spirit ye are of.
42:009:056 For the Son of man is not come to destroy men's lives, but to
save them. And they went to another village.
42:009:057 And it came to pass, that, as they went in the way, a certain
man said unto him, Lord, I will follow thee whithersoever thou
42:009:058 And Jesus said unto him, Foxes have holes, and birds of the
air have nests; but the Son of man hath not where to lay his
42:009:059 And he said unto another, Follow me. But he said, Lord, suffer
me first to go and bury my father.
42:009:060 Jesus said unto him, Let the dead bury their dead: but go thou
and preach the kingdom of God.
42:009:061 And another also said, Lord, I will follow thee; but let me
first go bid them farewell, which are at home at my house.
42:009:062 And Jesus said unto him, No man, having put his hand to the
plough, and looking back, is fit for the kingdom of God.
42:010:001 After these things the LORD appointed other seventy also, and
sent them two and two before his face into every city and
place, whither he himself would come.
42:010:002 Therefore said he unto them, The harvest truly is great, but
the labourers are few: pray ye therefore the Lord of the
harvest, that he would send forth labourers into his harvest.
42:010:003 Go your ways: behold, I send you forth as lambs among wolves.
42:010:004 Carry neither purse, nor scrip, nor shoes: and salute no man
by the way.
42:010:005 And into whatsoever house ye enter, first say, Peace be to
42:010:006 And if the son of peace be there, your peace shall rest upon
it: if not, it shall turn to you again.
42:010:007 And in the same house remain, eating and drinking such things
as they give: for the labourer is worthy of his hire. Go not
from house to house.
42:010:008 And into whatsoever city ye enter, and they receive you, eat
such things as are set before you:
42:010:009 And heal the sick that are therein, and say unto them, The
kingdom of God is come nigh unto you.
42:010:010 But into whatsoever city ye enter, and they receive you not,
go your ways out into the streets of the same, and say,
42:010:011 Even the very dust of your city, which cleaveth on us, we do
wipe off against you: notwithstanding be ye sure of this, that
the kingdom of God is come nigh unto you.
42:010:012 But I say unto you, that it shall be more tolerable in that
day for Sodom, than for that city.
42:010:013 Woe unto thee, Chorazin! woe unto thee, Bethsaida! for if the
mighty works had been done in Tyre and Sidon, which have been
done in you, they had a great while ago repented, sitting in
sackcloth and ashes.
42:010:014 But it shall be more tolerable for Tyre and Sidon at the
judgment, than for you.
42:010:015 And thou, Capernaum, which art exalted to heaven, shalt be
thrust down to hell.
42:010:016 He that heareth you heareth me; and he that despiseth you
despiseth me; and he that despiseth me despiseth him that sent
42:010:017 And the seventy returned again with joy, saying, Lord, even
the devils are subject unto us through thy name.
42:010:018 And he said unto them, I beheld Satan as lightning fall from
42:010:019 Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and
scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing
shall by any means hurt you.
42:010:020 Notwithstanding in this rejoice not, that the spirits are
subject unto you; but rather rejoice, because your names are
written in heaven.
42:010:021 In that hour Jesus rejoiced in spirit, and said, I thank thee,
O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that 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.
42:010:022 All things are delivered to me of my Father: and no man
knoweth who the Son is, but the Father; and who the Father is,
but the Son, and he to whom the Son will reveal him.
42:010:023 And he turned him unto his disciples, and said privately,
Blessed are the eyes which see the things that ye see:
42:010:024 For I tell you, that many prophets and kings 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.
42:010:025 And, behold, a certain lawyer stood up, and tempted him,
saying, Master, what shall I do to inherit eternal life?
42:010:026 He said unto him, What is written in the law? how readest
42:010:027 And he answering said, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with
all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy
strength, and with all thy mind; and thy neighbour as thyself.
42:010:028 And he said unto him, Thou hast answered right: this do, and
thou shalt live.
42:010:029 But he, willing to justify himself, said unto Jesus, And who
is my neighbour?
42:010:030 And Jesus answering said, A certain man went down from
Jerusalem to Jericho, and fell among thieves, which stripped
him of his raiment, and wounded him, and departed, leaving him
42:010:031 And by chance there came down a certain priest that way: and
when he saw him, he passed by on the other side.
42:010:032 And likewise a Levite, when he was at the place, came and
looked on him, and passed by on the other side.
42:010:033 But a certain Samaritan, as he journeyed, came where he was:
and when he saw him, he had compassion on him,
42:010:034 And went to him, and bound up his wounds, pouring in oil and
wine, and set him on his own beast, and brought him to an inn,
and took care of him.
42:010:035 And on the morrow when he departed, he took out two pence, and
gave them to the host, and said unto him, Take care of him;
and whatsoever thou spendest more, when I come again, I will
42:010:036 Which now of these three, thinkest thou, was neighbour unto
him that fell among the thieves?
42:010:037 And he said, He that shewed mercy on him. Then said Jesus unto
him, Go, and do thou likewise.
42:010:038 Now it came to pass, as they went, that he entered into a
certain village: and a certain woman named Martha received him
into her house.
42:010:039 And she had a sister called Mary, which also sat at Jesus'
feet, and heard his word.
42:010:040 But Martha was cumbered about much serving, and came to him,
and said, Lord, dost thou not care that my sister hath left me
to serve alone? bid her therefore that she help me.
42:010:041 And Jesus answered and said unto her, Martha, Martha, thou art
careful and troubled about many things:
42:010:042 But one thing is needful: and Mary hath chosen that good part,
which shall not be taken away from her.
42:011:001 And it came to pass, that, as he was praying in a certain
place, when he ceased, one of his disciples said unto him,
Lord, teach us to pray, as John also taught his disciples.
42:011:002 And he said unto them, When ye pray, say, Our Father which art
in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be
done, as in heaven, so in earth.
42:011:003 Give us day by day our daily bread.
42:011:004 And forgive us our sins; for we also forgive every one that is
indebted to us. And lead us not into temptation; but deliver
us from evil.
42:011:005 And he said unto them, Which of you shall have a friend, and
shall go unto him at midnight, and say unto him, Friend, lend
me three loaves;
42:011:006 For a friend of mine in his journey is come to me, and I have
nothing to set before him?
42:011:007 And he from within shall answer and say, Trouble me not: the
door is now shut, and my children are with me in bed; I cannot
rise and give thee.
42:011:008 I say unto you, Though he will not rise and give him, because
he is his friend, yet because of his importunity he will rise
and give him as many as he needeth.
42:011:009 And I say unto you, Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and
ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you.
42:011:010 For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh
findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.
42:011:011 If a son shall ask bread of any of you that is a father, will
he give him a stone? or if he ask a fish, will he for a fish
give him a serpent?
42:011:012 Or if he shall ask an egg, will he offer him a scorpion?
42:011:013 If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your
children: how much more shall your heavenly Father give the
Holy Spirit to them that ask him?
42:011:014 And he was casting out a devil, and it was dumb. And it came
to pass, when the devil was gone out, the dumb spake; and the
42:011:015 But some of them said, He casteth out devils through Beelzebub
the chief of the devils.
42:011:016 And others, tempting him, sought of him a sign from heaven.
42:011:017 But he, knowing their thoughts, said unto them, Every kingdom
divided against itself is brought to desolation; and a house
divided against a house falleth.
42:011:018 If Satan also be divided against himself, how shall his
kingdom stand? because ye say that I cast out devils through
42:011:019 And if I by Beelzebub cast out devils, by whom do your sons
cast them out? therefore shall they be your judges.
42:011:020 But if I with the finger of God cast out devils, no doubt the
kingdom of God is come upon you.
42:011:021 When a strong man armed keepeth his palace, his goods are in
42:011:022 But when a stronger than he shall come upon him, and overcome
him, he taketh from him all his armour wherein he trusted, and
divideth his spoils.
42:011:023 He that is not with me is against me: and he that gathereth
not with me scattereth.
42:011:024 When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walketh
through dry places, seeking rest; and finding none, he saith,
I will return unto my house whence I came out.
42:011:025 And when he cometh, he findeth it swept and garnished.
42:011:026 Then goeth he, and taketh to him 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.
42:011:027 And it came to pass, as he spake these things, a certain woman
of the company lifted up her voice, and said unto him, Blessed
is the womb that bare thee, and the paps which thou hast
42:011:028 But he said, Yea rather, blessed are they that hear the word
of God, and keep it.
42:011:029 And when the people were gathered thick together, he began to
say, This is an evil generation: they seek a sign; and there
shall no sign be given it, but the sign of Jonas the prophet.
42:011:030 For as Jonas was a sign unto the Ninevites, so shall also the
Son of man be to this generation.
42:011:031 The queen of the south shall rise up in the judgment with the
men of this generation, and condemn them: for she came from
the utmost parts of the earth to hear the wisdom of Solomon;
and, behold, a greater than Solomon is here.
42:011:032 The men of Nineve shall rise up in the judgment with this
generation, and shall condemn it: for they repented at the
preaching of Jonas; and, behold, a greater than Jonas is here.
42:011:033 No man, when he hath lighted a candle, putteth it in a secret
place, neither under a bushel, but on a candlestick, that they
which come in may see the light.
42:011:034 The light of the body is the eye: therefore when thine eye is
single, thy whole body also is full of light; but when thine
eye is evil, thy body also is full of darkness.
42:011:035 Take heed therefore that the light which is in thee be not
42:011:036 If thy whole body therefore be full of light, having no part
dark, the whole shall be full of light, as when the bright
shining of a candle doth give thee light.
42:011:037 And as he spake, a certain Pharisee besought him to dine with
him: and he went in, and sat down to meat.
42:011:038 And when the Pharisee saw it, he marvelled that he had not
first washed before dinner.
42:011:039 And the Lord said unto him, Now do ye Pharisees make clean the
outside of the cup and the platter; but your inward part is
full of ravening and wickedness.
42:011:040 Ye fools, did not he that made that which is without make that
which is within also?
42:011:041 But rather give alms of such things as ye have; and, behold,
all things are clean unto you.
42:011:042 But woe unto you, Pharisees! for ye tithe mint and rue and all
manner of herbs, and pass over judgment and the love of God:
these ought ye to have done, and not to leave the other
42:011:043 Woe unto you, Pharisees! for ye love the uppermost seats in
the synagogues, and greetings in the markets.
42:011:044 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye are as
graves which appear not, and the men that walk over them are
not aware of them.
42:011:045 Then answered one of the lawyers, and said unto him, Master,
thus saying thou reproachest us also.
42:011:046 And he said, Woe unto you also, ye lawyers! for ye lade men
with burdens grievous to be borne, and ye yourselves touch not
the burdens with one of your fingers.
42:011:047 Woe unto you! for ye build the sepulchres of the prophets, and
your fathers killed them.
42:011:048 Truly ye bear witness that ye allow the deeds of your fathers:
for they indeed killed them, and ye build their sepulchres.
42:011:049 Therefore also said the wisdom of God, I will send them
prophets and apostles, and some of them they shall slay and
42:011:050 That the blood of all the prophets, which was shed from the
foundation of the world, may be required of this generation;
42:011:051 From the blood of Abel unto the blood of Zacharias which
perished between the altar and the temple: verily I say unto
you, It shall be required of this generation.
42:011:052 Woe unto you, lawyers! for ye have taken away the key of
