Dedication to Theophilus
1Forasmuch as many have taken in hand to set forth in order a declaration of those things which
are most surely believed among us, 2Even as they delivered them unto us, which from the
beginning were eyewitnesses, and ministers of the word; 3It 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, 4That thou mightest know the certainty of those things, wherein thou hast been
The Birth of John the Baptist Foretold
(Matthew 11:7-19; Luke 7:24-35; Luke 16:14-17)
5There 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. 6And
they were both righteous before God, walking in all the commandments and ordinances of the Lord
blameless. 7And they had no child, because that Elisabeth was barren, and they both were [now]
well stricken in years.
8And it came to pass, that while he executed the priest's office before God in the order of his
course, 9According to the custom of the priest's office, his lot was to burn incense when he went
into the temple of the Lord. 10And the whole multitude of the people were praying without at the
time of incense. 11And there appeared unto him an angel of the Lord standing on the right side of
the altar of incense. 12And when Zacharias saw [him], he was troubled, and fear fell upon him.
13But 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. 14And thou shalt have joy and gladness;
and many shall rejoice at his birth. 15For 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. 16And many of the children of Israel shall he turn to the Lord their God. 17And 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.
18And Zacharias said unto the angel, Whereby shall I know this? for I am an old man, and my wife
well stricken in years. 19And 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. 20And,
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 season.
21And the people waited for Zacharias, and marvelled that he tarried so long in the temple. 22And
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. 23And it came to pass, that, as
soon as the days of his ministration were accomplished, he departed to his own house.
24And after those days his wife Elisabeth conceived, and hid herself five months, saying, 25Thus
hath the Lord dealt with me in the days wherein he looked on [me], to take away my reproach
The Birth of Jesus Foretold
26And in the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent from God unto a city of Galilee, named
Nazareth, 27To a virgin espoused to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David; and
the virgin's name [was] Mary. 28And the angel came in unto her, and said, Hail, [thou that art]
highly favoured, the Lord [is] with thee: blessed [art] thou among women. 29And when she saw
[him], she was troubled at his saying, and cast in her mind what manner of salutation this should
be. 30And the angel said unto her, Fear not, Mary: for thou hast found favour with God. 31And,
behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call his name JESUS.
32He 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 David: 33And he shall reign over the house of Jacob for ever; and of
his kingdom there shall be no end. 34Then said Mary unto the angel, How shall this be, seeing I
know not a man? 35And 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. 36And, 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.
37For with God nothing shall be impossible. 38And Mary said, Behold the handmaid of the Lord; be
it unto me according to thy word. And the angel departed from her.
Mary Visits Elizabeth
39And Mary arose in those days, and went into the hill country with haste, into a city of Juda; 40And
entered into the house of Zacharias, and saluted Elisabeth. 41And 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: 42And she spake out with a loud voice, and said, Blessed [art] thou among
women, and blessed [is] the fruit of thy womb. 43And whence [is] this to me, that the mother of
my Lord should come to me? 44For, lo, as soon as the voice of thy salutation sounded in mine ears,
the babe leaped in my womb for joy. 45And blessed [is] she that believed: for there shall be a
performance of those things which were told her from the Lord.
Mary's Song of Praise
(1 Samuel 2:1-11)
46And Mary said, My soul doth magnify the Lord,
47And my spirit hath rejoiced in God my Saviour.
48For he hath regarded the low estate of his handmaiden: for, behold, from henceforth all
generations shall call me blessed.
49For he that is mighty hath done to me great things; and holy [is] his name.
50And his mercy [is] on them that fear him from generation to generation.
51He hath shewed strength with his arm; he hath scattered the proud in the imagination of their
52He hath put down the mighty from [their] seats, and exalted them of low degree.
53He hath filled the hungry with good things; and the rich he hath sent empty away.
54He hath holpen his servant Israel, in remembrance of [his] mercy;
55As he spake to our fathers, to Abraham, and to his seed for ever.
56And Mary abode with her about three months, and returned to her own house.
The Birth of John the Baptist
57Now Elisabeth's full time came that she should be delivered; and she brought forth a son. 58And
her neighbours and her cousins heard how the Lord had shewed great mercy upon her; and they
rejoiced with her.
59And 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. 60And his mother answered and said, Not [so]; but he
shall be called John. 61And they said unto her, There is none of thy kindred that is called by this
name. 62And they made signs to his father, how he would have him called. 63And he asked for a
writing table, and wrote, saying, His name is John. And they marvelled all. 64And his mouth was
opened immediately, and his tongue [loosed], and he spake, and praised God. 65And fear came on
all that dwelt round about them: and all these sayings were noised abroad throughout all the hill
country of Judaea. 66And 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.
67And his father Zacharias was filled with the Holy Ghost, and prophesied, saying,
68Blessed [be] the Lord God of Israel; for he hath visited and redeemed his people,
69And hath raised up an horn of salvation for us in the house of his servant David;
70As he spake by the mouth of his holy prophets, which have been since the world began:
71That we should be saved from our enemies, and from the hand of all that hate us;
72To perform the mercy [promised] to our fathers, and to remember his holy covenant;
73The oath which he sware to our father Abraham,
74That he would grant unto us, that we being delivered out of the hand of our enemies might serve
him without fear,
75In holiness and righteousness before him, all the days of our life.
76And thou, child, shalt be called the prophet of the Highest: for thou shalt go before the face of
the Lord to prepare his ways;
77To give knowledge of salvation unto his people by the remission of their sins,
78Through the tender mercy of our God; whereby the dayspring from on high hath visited us,
To give light to them that sit in darkness and [in] the shadow of death, to guide our feet into the
way of peace.
80And the child grew, and waxed strong in spirit, and was in the deserts till the day of his shewing

The Birth of Jesus
(Isaiah 7:10-16; Micah 5:1-6; Matthew 1:18-25)
1And it came to pass in those days, that there went out a decree from Caesar Augustus, that all the
world should be taxed. 2([And] this taxing was first made when Cyrenius was governor of Syria.)
3And all went to be taxed, every one into his own city. 4And 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:) 5To be taxed with Mary his espoused wife, being great
with child. 6And so it was, that, while they were there, the days were accomplished that she should
be delivered. 7And 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.
The Shepherds and Angels
8And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock
by night. 9And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round
about them: and they were sore afraid. 10And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I
bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. 11For unto you is born this day in
the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord. 12And this [shall be] a sign unto you; Ye shall
find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger. 13And suddenly there was with the
angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying,
14Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.
15And 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. 16And they came with haste, and found Mary, and
Joseph, and the babe lying in a manger. 17And when they had seen [it], they made known abroad
the saying which was told them concerning this child. 18And all they that heard [it] wondered at
those things which were told them by the shepherds. 19But Mary kept all these things, and
pondered [them] in her heart. 20And the shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all the
things that they had heard and seen, as it was told unto them.
Jesus Presented at the Temple
21And 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.
22And 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; 23(As it is written in the law of the Lord,
Every male that openeth the womb shall be called holy to the Lord;) 24And to offer a sacrifice
according to that which is said in the law of the Lord, A pair of turtledoves, or two young pigeons.
The Prophecy of Simeon
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. 26And it
was revealed unto him by the Holy Ghost, that he should not see death, before he had seen the
Lord's Christ. 27And 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, 28Then took he him up in his arms, and
blessed God, and said,
29Lord, now lettest thou thy servant depart in peace, according to thy word:
30For mine eyes have seen thy salvation,
31Which thou hast prepared before the face of all people;
32A light to lighten the Gentiles, and the glory of thy people Israel.
33And Joseph and his mother marvelled at those things which were spoken of him. 34And 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; 35(Yea, a sword shall pierce
through thy own soul also,) that the thoughts of many hearts may be revealed.
The Prophecy of Anna
36And 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; 37And 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. 38And she coming in that instant gave thanks likewise
unto the Lord, and spake of him to all them that looked for redemption in Jerusalem.
The Return to Nazareth
(Isaiah 61:1-11; Matthew 2:19-23; Matthew 13:53-58; Mark 6:1-6; Luke 4:16-30)
39And when they had performed all things according to the law of the Lord, they returned into
Galilee, to their own city Nazareth. 40And the child grew, and waxed strong in spirit, filled with
wisdom: and the grace of God was upon him.
The Boy Jesus at the Temple
41Now his parents went to Jerusalem every year at the feast of the passover. 42And when he was
twelve years old, they went up to Jerusalem after the custom of the feast. 43And 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]. 44But they, supposing him to have been in the company, went a day's
journey; and they sought him among [their] kinsfolk and acquaintance. 45And when they found
him not, they turned back again to Jerusalem, seeking him. 46And 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. 47And all that heard him were astonished at his understanding and
answers. 48And 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. 49And he said
unto them, How is it that ye sought me? wist ye not that I must be about my Father's business?
50And they understood not the saying which he spake unto them. 51And he went down with them,
and came to Nazareth, and was subject unto them: but his mother kept all these sayings in her
52And Jesus increased in wisdom and stature, and in favour with God and man.

The Mission of John the Baptist
(Isaiah 40:1-5; Matthew 3:1-12; Mark 1:1-8; John 1:19-28)
1Now 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, 2Annas and Caiaphas being the high priests, the
word of God came unto John the son of Zacharias in the wilderness. 3And he came into all the
country about Jordan, preaching the baptism of repentance for the remission of sins;
4As 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.
5Every 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;
6And all flesh shall see the salvation of God.
7Then 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? 8Bring 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. 9And 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.
10And the people asked him, saying, What shall we do then? 11He 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. 12Then came also publicans to be baptized, and said unto him, Master, what shall we do?
13And he said unto them, Exact no more than that which is appointed you. 14And 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.
15And as the people were in expectation, and all men mused in their hearts of John, whether he
were the Christ, or not; 16John 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: 17Whose 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
18And many other things in his exhortation preached he unto the people. 19But Herod the tetrarch,
being reproved by him for Herodias his brother Philip's wife, and for all the evils which Herod had
done, 20Added yet this above all, that he shut up John in prison.
The Baptism of Jesus
(Matthew 3:13-17; Mark 1:9-11; John 1:29-34)
21Now when all the people were baptized, it came to pass, that Jesus also being baptized, and
praying, the heaven was opened, 22And 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

The Temptation of Jesus
(Matthew 4:1-11; Mark 1:12-13)
1And Jesus being full of the Holy Ghost returned from Jordan, and was led by the Spirit into the
wilderness, 2Being forty days tempted of the devil. And in those days he did eat nothing: and when
they were ended, he afterward hungered. 3And the devil said unto him, If thou be the Son of God,
command this stone that it be made bread. 4And Jesus answered him, saying, It is written, That
man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word of God.
5And the devil, taking him up into an high mountain, shewed unto him all the kingdoms of the
world in a moment of time. 6And 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. 7If thou therefore
wilt worship me, all shall be thine. 8And 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.
9And 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:
10For it is written, He shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee:
11And in [their] hands they shall bear thee up, lest at any time thou dash thy foot against a stone.
12And Jesus answering said unto him, It is said, Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God.
13And when the devil had ended all the temptation, he departed from him for a season.
Jesus Begins His Ministry
(Isaiah 9:1-7; Matthew 4:12-17; Mark 1:14-15)
14And Jesus returned in the power of the Spirit into Galilee: and there went out a fame of him
through all the region round about. 15And he taught in their synagogues, being glorified of all.
Jesus Rejected at Nazareth
(Isaiah 61:1-11; Matthew 2:19-23; Matthew 13:53-58; Mark 6:1-6; Luke 2:39-40)
16And 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. 17And there was delivered unto him
the book of the prophet Esaias. And when he had opened the book, he found the place where it
18The 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 are bruised,
19To preach the acceptable year of the Lord. 20And 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. 21And he began to say unto them, This day is this scripture fulfilled in your ears. 22And all
bare him witness, and wondered at the gracious words which proceeded out of his mouth. And
they said, Is not this Joseph's son? 23And 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. 24And he said, Verily I say unto you, No prophet is accepted in his own country. 25But 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; 26But unto none of
them was Elias sent, save unto Sarepta, [a city] of Sidon, unto a woman [that was] a widow.
27And many lepers were in Israel in the time of Eliseus the prophet; and none of them was
cleansed, saving Naaman the Syrian. 28And all they in the synagogue, when they heard these
things, were filled with wrath, 29And 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. 30But he
passing through the midst of them went his way,
Jesus Expels an Evil Spirit
31And came down to Capernaum, a city of Galilee, and taught them on the sabbath days. 32And
they were astonished at his doctrine: for his word was with power. 33And in the synagogue there
was a man, which had a spirit of an unclean devil, and cried out with a loud voice, 34Saying, 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. 35And 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. 36And 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. 37And
the fame of him went out into every place of the country round about.
Jesus Heals at Peter's House
(Matthew 8:14-17; Mark 1:29-34)
38And 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. 39And he stood over her, and
rebuked the fever; and it left her: and immediately she arose and ministered unto them.
40Now 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. 41And 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.
Jesus Preaches in Judea
42And 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. 43And he said unto them, I
must preach the kingdom of God to other cities also: for therefore am I sent.
44And he preached in the synagogues of Galilee.

Jesus Calls His First Disciples
(Matthew 4:18-22; Matthew 13:47-52; Mark 1:16-20; John 1:35-42)
1And it came to pass, that, as the people pressed upon him to hear the word of God, he stood by
the lake of Gennesaret, 2And saw two ships standing by the lake: but the fishermen were gone out
of them, and were washing [their] nets. 3And 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. 4Now when he had left speaking, he said unto Simon, Launch out into the
deep, and let down your nets for a draught. 5And 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. 6And
when they had this done, they inclosed a great multitude of fishes: and their net brake. 7And 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. 8When Simon Peter
saw [it], he fell down at Jesus' knees, saying, Depart from me; for I am a sinful man, O Lord. 9For
he was astonished, and all that were with him, at the draught of the fishes which they had taken:
10And 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. 11And when they had
brought their ships to land, they forsook all, and followed him.
The Leper's Prayer
(Leviticus 14:1-32; Matthew 8:1-4; Mark 1:40-45)
12And 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 clean.
13And he put forth [his] hand, and touched him, saying, I will: be thou clean. And immediately the
leprosy departed from him. 14And 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.
15But 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. 16And he withdrew himself into the wilderness,
Jesus Heals a Paralytic
(Matthew 9:1-8; Mark 2:1-12)
17And 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. 18And, 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] before
him. 19And 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 before Jesus. 20And when he saw their faith, he said unto him, Man, thy sins are forgiven
thee. 21And the scribes and the Pharisees began to reason, saying, Who is this which speaketh
blasphemies? Who can forgive sins, but God alone? 22But when Jesus perceived their thoughts, he
answering said unto them, What reason ye in your hearts? 23Whether is easier, to say, Thy sins be
forgiven thee; or to say, Rise up and walk? 24But 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 house. 25And immediately he rose up before them, and took
up that whereon he lay, and departed to his own house, glorifying God. 26And they were all
amazed, and they glorified God, and were filled with fear, saying, We have seen strange things to
Jesus Calls Levi
(Matthew 9:9-13; Mark 2:13-17)
27And 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. 28And he left all, rose up, and followed him.
29And Levi made him a great feast in his own house: and there was a great company of publicans
and of others that sat down with them. 30But their scribes and Pharisees murmured against his
disciples, saying, Why do ye eat and drink with publicans and sinners? 31And Jesus answering said
unto them, They that are whole need not a physician; but they that are sick. 32I came not to call
the righteous, but sinners to repentance.
Jesus Questioned about Fasting
(Matthew 9:14-15; Mark 2:18-20)
33And 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? 34And he said unto them, Can ye make
the children of the bridechamber fast, while the bridegroom is with them? 35But the days will
come, when the bridegroom shall be taken away from them, and then shall they fast in those days.
The Patches and Wineskins
(Matthew 9:16-17; Mark 2:21-22)
36And 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. 37And no man putteth new wine into old bottles; else the new wine will
burst the bottles, and be spilled, and the bottles shall perish. 38But new wine must be put into new
bottles; and both are preserved. 39No man also having drunk old [wine] straightway desireth new:
for he saith, The old is better.

The Lord of the Sabbath
(1 Samuel 21:1-9; Matthew 12:1-8; Mark 2:23-28)
1And 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] hands. 2And
certain of the Pharisees said unto them, Why do ye that which is not lawful to do on the sabbath
days? 3And 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; 4How 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? 5And he said unto them, That the Son of man is Lord also of the
Jesus Heals on the Sabbath
(Matthew 12:9-14; Mark 3:1-6)
6And 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. 7And the scribes and Pharisees watched him,
whether he would heal on the sabbath day; that they might find an accusation against him. 8But
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. 9Then 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]?
10And 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. 11And they were filled with madness; and
communed one with another what they might do to Jesus.
The Twelve Apostles
(Matthew 10:1-4; Mark 3:13-19)
12And it came to pass in those days, that he went out into a mountain to pray, and continued all
night in prayer to God. 13And when it was day, he called [unto him] his disciples: and of them he
chose twelve, whom also he named apostles; 14Simon, (whom he also named Peter,) and Andrew
his brother, James and John, Philip and Bartholomew, 15Matthew and Thomas, James the [son] of
Alphaeus, and Simon called Zelotes, 16And Judas [the brother] of James, and Judas Iscariot, which
also was the traitor.
Jesus Ministers to a Great Crowd
17And 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 diseases; 18And they that were vexed
with unclean spirits: and they were healed. 19And the whole multitude sought to touch him: for
there went virtue out of him, and healed [them] all.
(Psalm 1:1-6; Matthew 5:3-12)
20And he lifted up his eyes on his disciples, and said, Blessed [be ye] poor: for yours is the kingdom
of God. 21Blessed [are ye] that hunger now: for ye shall be filled. Blessed [are ye] that weep now:
for ye shall laugh. 22Blessed 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. 23Rejoice 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.
24But woe unto you that are rich! for ye have received your consolation. 25Woe unto you that are
full! for ye shall hunger. Woe unto you that laugh now! for ye shall mourn and weep. 26Woe unto
you, when all men shall speak well of you! for so did their fathers to the false prophets.
Love Your Enemies
(Leviticus 24:17-23; Matthew 5:38-48)
27But I say unto you which hear, Love your enemies, do good to them which hate you, 28Bless
them that curse you, and pray for them which despitefully use you. 29And unto him that smiteth
thee on the [one] cheek offer also the other; and him that taketh away thy cloke forbid not [to
take thy] coat also. 30Give to every man that asketh of thee; and of him that taketh away thy
goods ask [them] not again. 31And as ye would that men should do to you, do ye also to them
likewise. 32For if ye love them which love you, what thank have ye? for sinners also love those that
love them. 33And if ye do good to them which do good to you, what thank have ye? for sinners
also do even the same. 34And 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 again. 35But 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. 36Be ye therefore
merciful, as your Father also is merciful.
Do Not Judge
(Matthew 7:1-6; Romans 14:1-12)
37Judge not, and ye shall not be judged: condemn not, and ye shall not be condemned: forgive,
and ye shall be forgiven: 38Give, 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.
39And he spake a parable unto them, Can the blind lead the blind? shall they not both fall into the
ditch? 40The disciple is not above his master: but every one that is perfect shall be as his master.
41And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother's eye, but perceivest not the beam that is
in thine own eye? 42Either 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.
A Tree and its Fruit
(Matthew 7:15-23; Matthew 12:33-37)
43For a good tree bringeth not forth corrupt fruit; neither doth a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.
44For every tree is known by his own fruit. For of thorns men do not gather figs, nor of a bramble
bush gather they grapes. 45A 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.
The House on the Rock
46And why call ye me, Lord, Lord, and do not the things which I say? 47Whosoever cometh to me,
and heareth my sayings, and doeth them, I will shew you to whom he is like: 48He 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. 49But 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.

The Centurion's Great Faith
(Matthew 8:5-13; John 4:43-54)
1Now when he had ended all his sayings in the audience of the people, he entered into Capernaum.
2And a certain centurion's servant, who was dear unto him, was sick, and ready to die. 3And when
he heard of Jesus, he sent unto him the elders of the Jews, beseeching him that he would come
and heal his servant. 4And when they came to Jesus, they besought him instantly, saying, That he
was worthy for whom he should do this: 5For he loveth our nation, and he hath built us a
synagogue. 6Then 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: 7Wherefore neither thought I myself worthy to come unto
thee: but say in a word, and my servant shall be healed. 8For 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]. 9When 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. 10And they that were sent, returning to the
house, found the servant whole that had been sick.
Jesus Raises a Widow's Son
11And 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 people. 12Now 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. 13And when the Lord saw her, he had compassion on her, and said unto her,
Weep not. 14And he came and touched the bier: and they that bare [him] stood still. And he said,
Young man, I say unto thee, Arise. 15And he that was dead sat up, and began to speak. And he
delivered him to his mother. 16And 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. 17And this rumour of
him went forth throughout all Judaea, and throughout all the region round about.
18And the disciples of John shewed him of all these things. 19And John calling [unto him] two of his
disciples sent [them] to Jesus, saying, Art thou he that should come? or look we for another?
20When 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? 21And in that same hour he cured many of
[their] infirmities and plagues, and of evil spirits; and unto many [that were] blind he gave sight.
22Then 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. 23And blessed is [he], whosoever shall not be offended
Jesus Testifies about John
(Matthew 11:7-19; Luke 1:5-25; Luke 16:14-17)
24And 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? 25But 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. 26But what went ye out for to see? A prophet?
Yea, I say unto you, and much more than a prophet.
27This is [he], of whom it is written, Behold, I send my messenger before thy face, which shall
prepare thy way before thee.
28For 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. 29And all the people
that heard [him], and the publicans, justified God, being baptized with the baptism of John. 30But
the Pharisees and lawyers rejected the counsel of God against themselves, being not baptized of
31And the Lord said, Whereunto then shall I liken the men of this generation? and to what are they
like? 32They 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
not wept. 33For John the Baptist came neither eating bread nor drinking wine; and ye say, He hath
a devil. 34The Son of man is come eating and drinking; and ye say, Behold a gluttonous man, and
a winebibber, a friend of publicans and sinners! 35But wisdom is justified of all her children.
A Sinful Woman Anoints Jesus
36And one of the Pharisees desired him that he would eat with him. And he went into the Pharisee's
house, and sat down to meat. 37And, 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, 38And
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 ointment. 39Now
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.
The Parable of the Two Debtors
40And Jesus answering said unto him, Simon, I have somewhat to say unto thee. And he saith,
Master, say on. 41There was a certain creditor which had two debtors: the one owed five hundred
pence, and the other fifty. 42And when they had nothing to pay, he frankly forgave them both. Tell
me therefore, which of them will love him most? 43Simon answered and said, I suppose that [he],
to whom he forgave most. And he said unto him, Thou hast rightly judged. 44And 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. 45Thou gavest me no kiss: but this woman since the time I came in hath not ceased to
kiss my feet. 46My head with oil thou didst not anoint: but this woman hath anointed my feet with
ointment. 47Wherefore 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. 48And he said unto her, Thy sins are
forgiven. 49And they that sat at meat with him began to say within themselves, Who is this that
forgiveth sins also? 50And he said to the woman, Thy faith hath saved thee; go in peace.

Women Minister to Jesus

shewing the glad tidings of the kingdom of God: and the twelve [were] with him, 2And certain

went seven devils, 3And Joanna the wife of Chuza Herod's steward, and Susanna, and many

The Parable of the Sower
(Matthew 13:1-9; Mark 4:1-9)
4And when much people were gathered together, and were come to him out of every city, he spake
by a parable: 5A 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. 6And some fell upon a rock; and as soon
as it was sprung up, it withered away, because it lacked moisture. 7And some fell among thorns;
and the thorns sprang up with it, and choked it. 8And 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.
9And his disciples asked him, saying, What might this parable be? 10And 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.
11Now the parable is this: The seed is the word of God. 12Those 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. 13They 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. 14And 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. 15But 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.
The Lesson of the Lamp
16No 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. 17For nothing is secret,
that shall not be made manifest; neither [any thing] hid, that shall not be known and come abroad.
18Take 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.
Jesus' Mother and Brothers
(Matthew 12:46-50; Mark 3:31-35)
19Then came to him [his] mother and his brethren, and could not come at him for the press. 20And
it was told him [by certain] which said, Thy mother and thy brethren stand without, desiring to see
thee. 21And he answered and said unto them, My mother and my brethren are these which hear
the word of God, and do it.
Jesus Stills the Storm
(Matthew 8:23-27; Mark 4:35-41)
22Now 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. 23But 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 in jeopardy. 24And 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. 25And 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
Demons Cast into Pigs
(Matthew 8:28-34; Mark 5:1-20)
26And they arrived at the country of the Gadarenes, which is over against Galilee. 27And 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. 28When 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. 29(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.) 30And Jesus asked him, saying, What is thy name? And he said, Legion: because many
devils were entered into him. 31And they besought him that he would not command them to go
out into the deep.
32And 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. 33Then 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.
34When they that fed [them] saw what was done, they fled, and went and told [it] in the city and in
the country. 35Then 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. 36They also which saw [it] told them by what means he that was possessed
of the devils was healed. 37Then 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 back again. 38Now the man out of whom the devils were departed besought
him that he might be with him: but Jesus sent him away, saying, 39Return 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.
The Healing Touch of Jesus
(Matthew 9:18-26; Mark 5:21-43)
40And it came to pass, that, when Jesus was returned, the people [gladly] received him: for they
were all waiting for him. 41And, 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:
42For he had one only daughter, about twelve years of age, and she lay a dying. But as he went
the people thronged him.
43And a woman having an issue of blood twelve years, which had spent all her living upon
physicians, neither could be healed of any, 44Came behind [him], and touched the border of his
garment: and immediately her issue of blood stanched. 45And 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? 46And Jesus said, Somebody hath touched me: for I
perceive that virtue is gone out of me. 47And 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. 48And he said unto her, Daughter, be
of good comfort: thy faith hath made thee whole; go in peace.
49While 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. 50But when Jesus heard [it], he answered him,
saying, Fear not: believe only, and she shall be made whole. 51And 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. 52And all wept, and bewailed her: but he said, Weep not; she is not dead, but
sleepeth. 53And they laughed him to scorn, knowing that she was dead. 54And he put them all out,
and took her by the hand, and called, saying, Maid, arise. 55And her spirit came again, and she
arose straightway: and he commanded to give her meat. 56And her parents were astonished: but
he charged them that they should tell no man what was done.

The Ministry of the Twelve
(Matthew 10:5-15; Mark 6:7-13)
1Then he called his twelve disciples together, and gave them power and authority over all devils,
and to cure diseases. 2And he sent them to preach the kingdom of God, and to heal the sick. 3And
he said unto them, Take nothing for [your] journey, neither staves, nor scrip, neither bread, neither
money; neither have two coats apiece. 4And whatsoever house ye enter into, there abide, and
thence depart. 5And whosoever will not receive you, when ye go out of that city, shake off the very
dust from your feet for a testimony against them. 6And they departed, and went through the
towns, preaching the gospel, and healing every where.
Herod Desires to See Jesus
(Matthew 14:1-12; Mark 6:14-29)
7Now 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; 8And of some, that Elias had appeared; and
of others, that one of the old prophets was risen again. 9And Herod said, John have I beheaded:
but who is this, of whom I hear such things? And he desired to see him.
The Feeding of the Five Thousand
(Matthew 14:13-21; Mark 6:30-44; John 6:1-15)
10And 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. 11And 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.
12And 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. 13But 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. 14For they were about five thousand men. And he said to his disciples, Make them sit
down by fifties in a company. 15And they did so, and made them all sit down. 16Then 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. 17And they did eat, and were all filled: and there was
taken up of fragments that remained to them twelve baskets.

(Matthew 16:13-20; Mark 8:27-30; John 6:66-71)
18And 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? 19They answering said, John the Baptist; but some [say],
Elias; and others [say], that one of the old prophets is risen again. 20He said unto them, But whom
say ye that I am? Peter answering said, The Christ of God.
Jesus Predicts His Death
(Matthew 16:21-23; Mark 8:31-33)

and be slain, and be raised the third day.

23And 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. 24For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: but whosoever will lose
his life for my sake, the same shall save it. 25For what is a man advantaged, if he gain the whole
world, and lose himself, or be cast away? 26For 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. 27But I tell you of a truth, there be some standing here, which
shall not taste of death, till they see the kingdom of God.
(Matthew 17:1-13; Mark 9:1-13; 2 Peter 1:16-21)
28And it came to pass about an eight days after these sayings, he took Peter and John and James,
and went up into a mountain to pray. 29And as he prayed, the fashion of his countenance was
altered, and his raiment [was] white [and] glistering. 30And, behold, there talked with him two
men, which were Moses and Elias: 31Who appeared in glory, and spake of his decease which he
should accomplish at Jerusalem. 32But 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. 33And 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. 34While he thus spake, there came a cloud, and overshadowed them: and
they feared as they entered into the cloud. 35And there came a voice out of the cloud, saying, This
is my beloved Son: hear him. 36And 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.
Jesus Heals a Boy with an Evil Spirit
(Matthew 17:14-21; Mark 9:14-29; Luke 17:5-10)
37And it came to pass, that on the next day, when they were come down from the hill, much people
met him. 38And, behold, a man of the company cried out, saying, Master, I beseech thee, look
upon my son: for he is mine only child. 39And, 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. 40And I
besought thy disciples to cast him out; and they could not. 41And Jesus answering said, O faithless
and perverse generation, how long shall I be with you, and suffer you? Bring thy son hither. 42And
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.
Jesus Again Predicts His Death
43And 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, 44Let these sayings sink down into your ears: for
the Son of man shall be delivered into the hands of men. 45But they understood not this saying,
and it was hid from them, that they perceived it not: and they feared to ask him of that saying.
The Greatest in the Kingdom
(Matthew 18:1-6; Mark 9:33-37)
46Then there arose a reasoning among them, which of them should be greatest. 47And Jesus,
perceiving the thought of their heart, took a child, and set him by him, 48And 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.
49And John answered and said, Master, we saw one casting out devils in thy name; and we forbad
him, because he followeth not with us. 50And Jesus said unto him, Forbid [him] not: for he that is
not against us is for us.
Samaritans Reject Jesus
51And it came to pass, when the time was come that he should be received up, he stedfastly set his
face to go to Jerusalem, 52And sent messengers before his face: and they went, and entered into a
village of the Samaritans, to make ready for him. 53And they did not receive him, because his face
was as though he would go to Jerusalem. 54And 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? 55But he turned, and rebuked them, and said, Ye know not what manner of
spirit ye are of. 56For the Son of man is not come to destroy men's lives, but to save [them]. And
they went to another village.
The Cost of Following Jesus
(Matthew 8:18-22; Luke 14:25-33; John 6:60-65)
57And it came to pass, that, as they went in the way, a certain [man] said unto him, Lord, I will
follow thee whithersoever thou goest. 58And 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] head. 59And he said unto
another, Follow me. But he said, Lord, suffer me first to go and bury my father. 60Jesus said unto
him, Let the dead bury their dead: but go thou and preach the kingdom of God. 61And another also
said, Lord, I will follow thee; but let me first go bid them farewell, which are at home at my house.
62And Jesus said unto him, No man, having put his hand to the plough, and looking back, is fit for
the kingdom of God.

Jesus Sends Out the Seventy-Two
1After 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. 2Therefore 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. 3Go your ways: behold, I send you forth as lambs
among wolves. 4Carry neither purse, nor scrip, nor shoes: and salute no man by the way. 5And
into whatsoever house ye enter, first say, Peace [be] to this house. 6And if the son of peace be
there, your peace shall rest upon it: if not, it shall turn to you again. 7And 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. 8And into whatsoever city ye enter, and they receive you, eat such things as
are set before you: 9And heal the sick that are therein, and say unto them, The kingdom of God is
come nigh unto you. 10But into whatsoever city ye enter, and they receive you not, go your ways
out into the streets of the same, and say, 11Even 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. 12But I say unto you, that it shall be more tolerable in that day for Sodom, than for
Woe to the Unrepentant
13Woe 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. 14But it shall be more tolerable for Tyre and Sidon at the judgment, than for
you. 15And thou, Capernaum, which art exalted to heaven, shalt be thrust down to hell.
16He that heareth you heareth me; and he that despiseth you despiseth me; and he that despiseth
me despiseth him that sent me.
The Seventy-Two Return with Joy
17And the seventy returned again with joy, saying, Lord, even the devils are subject unto us
through thy name. 18And he said unto them, I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven.
19Behold, 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. 20Notwithstanding in this rejoice not, that the
spirits are subject unto you; but rather rejoice, because your names are written in heaven.
Jesus' Prayer of Thanksgiving
21In 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. 22All 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].
23And he turned him unto [his] disciples, and said privately, Blessed [are] the eyes which see the
things that ye see: 24For 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
The Parable of the Good Samaritan
25And, behold, a certain lawyer stood up, and tempted him, saying, Master, what shall I do to
inherit eternal life? 26He said unto him, What is written in the law? how readest thou? 27And 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. 28And he said unto him, Thou
hast answered right: this do, and thou shalt live. 29But he, willing to justify himself, said unto
Jesus, And who is my neighbour?
30And 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] half
dead. 31And by chance there came down a certain priest that way: and when he saw him, he
passed by on the other side. 32And likewise a Levite, when he was at the place, came and looked
[on him], and passed by on the other side. 33But a certain Samaritan, as he journeyed, came
where he was: and when he saw him, he had compassion [on him], 34And 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. 35And 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 repay thee. 36Which now of these three, thinkest thou, was
neighbour unto him that fell among the thieves? 37And he said, He that shewed mercy on him.
Then said Jesus unto him, Go, and do thou likewise.
Martha and Mary
38Now 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. 39And she had a sister called Mary, which also sat at
Jesus' feet, and heard his word. 40But 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. 41And Jesus answered and said unto her, Martha, Martha, thou art careful and
troubled about many things: 42But one thing is needful: and Mary hath chosen that good part,
which shall not be taken away from her.

The Lord's Prayer
1And 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.
2And 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.
3Give us day by day our daily bread.
4And 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.
Ask, Seek, Knock
5And 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; 6For a friend of mine in his journey is come to me, and
I have nothing to set before him? 7And 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. 8I 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.
9And I say unto you, Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be
opened unto you. 10For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him
that knocketh it shall be opened. 11If 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? 12Or if he shall ask an
egg, will he offer him a scorpion? 13If 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?
A House Divided
(Matthew 12:22-30; Mark 3:20-27)
14And 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 people wondered. 15But some of them said, He casteth out devils
through Beelzebub the chief of the devils. 16And others, tempting [him], sought of him a sign from
heaven. 17But he, knowing their thoughts, said unto them, Every kingdom divided against itself is
brought to desolation; and a house [divided] against a house falleth. 18If Satan also be divided
against himself, how shall his kingdom stand? because ye say that I cast out devils through
Beelzebub. 19And if I by Beelzebub cast out devils, by whom do your sons cast [them] out?
therefore shall they be your judges. 20But if I with the finger of God cast out devils, no doubt the
kingdom of God is come upon you. 21When a strong man armed keepeth his palace, his goods are
in peace: 22But 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. 23He that is not with me is against
me: and he that gathereth not with me scattereth.
Return of an Unclean Spirit
24When 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. 25And when he cometh, he
findeth [it] swept and garnished. 26Then 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.
27And 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
sucked. 28But he said, Yea rather, blessed [are] they that hear the word of God, and keep it.
The Sign of Jonah
29And 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. 30For as
Jonas was a sign unto the Ninevites, so shall also the Son of man be to this generation. 31The
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. 32The 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.
The Lamp of the Body
33No 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. 34The 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. 35Take heed therefore that the light which is in thee be not
darkness. 36If 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.
Woes to Pharisees and Experts in Law
37And as he spake, a certain Pharisee besought him to dine with him: and he went in, and sat down
to meat. 38And when the Pharisee saw [it], he marvelled that he had not first washed before
dinner. 39And 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. 40[Ye] fools, did not he that
made that which is without make that which is within also? 41But rather give alms of such things as
ye have; and, behold, all things are clean unto you.
42But 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 undone.
43Woe unto you, Pharisees! for ye love the uppermost seats in the synagogues, and greetings in
the markets. 44Woe 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].
45Then answered one of the lawyers, and said unto him, Master, thus saying thou reproachest us
also. 46And 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. 47Woe unto you! for ye
build the sepulchres of the prophets, and your fathers killed them. 48Truly ye bear witness that ye
allow the deeds of your fathers: for they indeed killed them, and ye build their sepulchres.
49Therefore also said the wisdom of God, I will send them prophets and apostles, and [some] of
them they shall slay and persecute: 50That the blood of all the prophets, which was shed from the
foundation of the world, may be required of this generation; 51From 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. 52Woe unto you, lawyers! for ye have taken away the key of
knowledge: ye entered not in yourselves, and them that were entering in ye hindered.
53And as he said these things unto them, the scribes and the Pharisees began to urge [him]
vehemently, and to provoke him to speak of many things: 54Laying wait for him, and seeking to
catch something out of his mouth, that they might accuse him.

The Leaven of the Pharisees
1In the mean time, when there were gathered together an innumerable multitude of people,
insomuch that they trode one upon another, he began to say unto his disciples first of all, Beware
ye of the leaven of the Pharisees, which is hypocrisy. 2For there is nothing covered, that shall not
be revealed; neither hid, that shall not be known. 3Therefore whatsoever ye have spoken in
darkness shall be heard in the light; and that which ye have spoken in the ear in closets shall be
proclaimed upon the housetops.
Fearing God Alone
4And I say unto you my friends, Be not afraid of them that kill the body, and after that have no
more that they can do. 5But I will forewarn you whom ye shall fear: Fear him, which after he hath
killed hath power to cast into hell; yea, I say unto you, Fear him. 6Are not five sparrows sold for
two farthings, and not one of them is forgotten before God? 7But even the very hairs of your head
are all numbered. Fear not therefore: ye are of more value than many sparrows.
8Also I say unto you, Whosoever shall confess me before men, him shall the Son of man also
confess before the angels of God: 9But he that denieth me before men shall be denied before the
angels of God. 10And whosoever shall speak a word against the Son of man, it shall be forgiven
him: but unto him that blasphemeth against the Holy Ghost it shall not be forgiven. 11And when
they bring you unto the synagogues, and [unto] magistrates, and powers, take ye no thought how
or what thing ye shall answer, or what ye shall say: 12For the Holy Ghost shall teach you in the
same hour what ye ought to say.
The Parable of the Rich Fool
13And one of the company said unto him, Master, speak to my brother, that he divide the
inheritance with me. 14And he said unto him, Man, who made me a judge or a divider over you?
15And he said unto them, Take heed, and beware of covetousness: for a man's life consisteth not
in the abundance of the things which he possesseth. 16And he spake a parable unto them, saying,
The ground of a certain rich man brought forth plentifully: 17And he thought within himself, saying,
What shall I do, because I have no room where to bestow my fruits? 18And he said, This will I do:
I will pull down my barns, and build greater; and there will I bestow all my fruits and my goods.
19And I will say to my soul, Soul, thou hast much goods laid up for many years; take thine ease,
eat, drink, [and] be merry. 20But God said unto him, [Thou] fool, this night thy soul shall be
required of thee: then whose shall those things be, which thou hast provided? 21So [is] he that
layeth up treasure for himself, and is not rich toward God.
Do Not Worry
22And he said unto his disciples, Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye
shall eat; neither for the body, what ye shall put on. 23The life is more than meat, and the body [is
more] than raiment. 24Consider the ravens: for they neither sow nor reap; which neither have
storehouse nor barn; and God feedeth them: how much more are ye better than the fowls? 25And
which of you with taking thought can add to his stature one cubit? 26If ye then be not able to do
that thing which is least, why take ye thought for the rest? 27Consider the lilies how they grow:
they toil not, they spin not; and yet I say unto you, that Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed
like one of these. 28If then God so clothe the grass, which is to day in the field, and to morrow is
cast into the oven; how much more [will he clothe] you, O ye of little faith? 29And seek not ye
what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink, neither be ye of doubtful mind. 30For all these things do
the nations of the world seek after: and your Father knoweth that ye have need of these things.
31But rather seek ye the kingdom of God; and all these things shall be added unto you. 32Fear not,
little flock; for it is your Father's good pleasure to give you the kingdom.
33Sell that ye have, and give alms; provide yourselves bags which wax not old, a treasure in the
heavens that faileth not, where no thief approacheth, neither moth corrupteth. 34For where your
treasure is, there will your heart be also.
Be Ready for Service
(Genesis 6:1-7; Matthew 24:36-51; Mark 13:32-37)
35Let your loins be girded about, and [your] lights burning; 36And ye yourselves like unto men that
wait for their lord, when he will return from the wedding; that when he cometh and knocketh, they
may open unto him immediately. 37Blessed [are] those servants, whom the lord when he cometh
shall find watching: verily I say unto you, that he shall gird himself, and make them to sit down to
meat, and will come forth and serve them. 38And if he shall come in the second watch, or come in
the third watch, and find [them] so, blessed are those servants.
39And this know, that if the goodman of the house had known what hour the thief would come, he
would have watched, and not have suffered his house to be broken through. 40Be ye therefore
ready also: for the Son of man cometh at an hour when ye think not.
41Then Peter said unto him, Lord, speakest thou this parable unto us, or even to all? 42And the
Lord said, Who then is that faithful and wise steward, whom [his] lord shall make ruler over his
household, to give [them their] portion of meat in due season? 43Blessed [is] that servant, whom
his lord when he cometh shall find so doing. 44Of a truth I say unto you, that he will make him
ruler over all that he hath. 45But and if that servant say in his heart, My lord delayeth his coming;
and shall begin to beat the menservants and maidens, and to eat and drink, and to be drunken;
46The lord of that servant will come in a day when he looketh not for [him], and at an hour when
he is not aware, and will cut him in sunder, and will appoint him his portion with the unbelievers.
47And that servant, which knew his lord's will, and prepared not [himself], neither did according to
his will, shall be beaten with many [stripes]. 48But he that knew not, and did commit things worthy
of stripes, shall be beaten with few [stripes]. For unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be
much required: and to whom men have committed much, of him they will ask the more.
Not Peace, But Division
49I am come to send fire on the earth; and what will I, if it be already kindled? 50But I have a
baptism to be baptized with; and how am I straitened till it be accomplished! 51Suppose ye that I
am come to give peace on earth? I tell you, Nay; but rather division: 52For from henceforth there
shall be five in one house divided, three against two, and two against three. 53The father shall be
divided against the son, and the son against the father; the mother against the daughter, and the
daughter against the mother; the mother in law against her daughter in law, and the daughter in
law against her mother in law.
Interpreting the Present Time
(Matthew 16:1-4; Mark 8:11-13)
54And he said also to the people, When ye see a cloud rise out of the west, straightway ye say,
There cometh a shower; and so it is. 55And when [ye see] the south wind blow, ye say, There will
be heat; and it cometh to pass. 56[Ye] hypocrites, ye can discern the face of the sky and of the
earth; but how is it that ye do not discern this time?
Reconciling with Your Adversary
57Yea, and why even of yourselves judge ye not what is right? 58When thou goest with thine
adversary to the magistrate, [as thou art] in the way, give diligence that thou mayest be delivered
from him; lest he hale thee to the judge, and the judge deliver thee to the officer, and the officer
cast thee into prison. 59I tell thee, thou shalt not depart thence, till thou hast paid the very last

A Call to Repentance
(Joel 1:13-20; Amos 5:4-15; Zephaniah 2:1-3)
1There were present at that season some that told him of the Galilaeans, whose blood Pilate had
mingled with their sacrifices. 2And Jesus answering said unto them, Suppose ye that these
Galilaeans were sinners above all the Galilaeans, because they suffered such things? 3I tell you,
Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish. 4Or those eighteen, upon whom the tower
in Siloam fell, and slew them, think ye that they were sinners above all men that dwelt in
Jerusalem? 5I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish.
The Parable of the Barren Fig Tree
6He spake also this parable; A certain [man] had a fig tree planted in his vineyard; and he came
and sought fruit thereon, and found none. 7Then said he unto the dresser of his vineyard, Behold,
these three years I come seeking fruit on this fig tree, and find none: cut it down; why cumbereth
it the ground? 8And he answering said unto him, Lord, let it alone this year also, till I shall dig
about it, and dung [it]: 9And if it bear fruit, [well]: and if not, [then] after that thou shalt cut it
Jesus Heals a Woman on the Sabbath
10And he was teaching in one of the synagogues on the sabbath. 11And, behold, there was a
woman which had a spirit of infirmity eighteen years, and was bowed together, and could in no
wise lift up [herself]. 12And when Jesus saw her, he called [her to him], and said unto her,
Woman, thou art loosed from thine infirmity. 13And he laid [his] hands on her: and immediately
she was made straight, and glorified God. 14And the ruler of the synagogue answered with
indignation, because that Jesus had healed on the sabbath day, and said unto the people, There
are six days in which men ought to work: in them therefore come and be healed, and not on the
sabbath day. 15The Lord then answered him, and said, [Thou] hypocrite, doth not each one of you
on the sabbath loose his ox or [his] ass from the stall, and lead [him] away to watering? 16And
ought not this woman, being a daughter of Abraham, whom Satan hath bound, lo, these eighteen
years, be loosed from this bond on the sabbath day? 17And when he had said these things, all his
adversaries were ashamed: and all the people rejoiced for all the glorious things that were done by
The Parable of the Mustard Seed
(Matthew 13:31-32; Mark 4:30-34)
18Then said he, Unto what is the kingdom of God like? and whereunto shall I resemble it? 19It is
like a grain of mustard seed, which a man took, and cast into his garden; and it grew, and waxed a
great tree; and the fowls of the air lodged in the branches of it.
The Parable of the Leaven
(Judges 20:18-23; 2 Samuel 2:12-32; 2 Chronicles 13:4-19; Matthew 13:33-33)
20And again he said, Whereunto shall I liken the kingdom of God? 21It is like leaven, which a
woman took and hid in three measures of meal, till the whole was leavened.
The Narrow Gate
22And he went through the cities and villages, teaching, and journeying toward Jerusalem. 23Then
said one unto him, Lord, are there few that be saved? And he said unto them, 24Strive to enter in
at the strait gate: for many, I say unto you, will seek to enter in, and shall not be able. 25When
once the master of the house is risen up, and hath shut to the door, and ye begin to stand without,
and to knock at the door, saying, Lord, Lord, open unto us; and he shall answer and say unto you,
I know you not whence ye are: 26Then shall ye begin to say, We have eaten and drunk in thy
presence, and thou hast taught in our streets. 27But he shall say, I tell you, I know you not whence
ye are; depart from me, all [ye] workers of iniquity. 28There shall be weeping and gnashing of
teeth, when ye shall see Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, and all the prophets, in the kingdom of
God, and you [yourselves] thrust out. 29And they shall come from the east, and [from] the west,
and from the north, and [from] the south, and shall sit down in the kingdom of God. 30And,
behold, there are last which shall be first, and there are first which shall be last.
Lament over Jerusalem
31The same day there came certain of the Pharisees, saying unto him, Get thee out, and depart
hence: for Herod will kill thee. 32And he said unto them, Go ye, and tell that fox, Behold, I cast out
devils, and I do cures to day and to morrow, and the third [day] I shall be perfected.
33Nevertheless I must walk to day, and to morrow, and the [day] following: for it cannot be that a
prophet perish out of Jerusalem. 34O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, which killest the prophets, and stonest
them that are sent unto thee; how often would I have gathered thy children together, as a hen
[doth gather] her brood under [her] wings, and ye would not! 35Behold, your house is left unto
you desolate: and verily I say unto you, Ye shall not see me, until [the time] come when ye shall
say, Blessed [is] he that cometh in the name of the Lord.

Jesus Heals a Man with Dropsy
1And it came to pass, as he went into the house of one of the chief Pharisees to eat bread on the
sabbath day, that they watched him. 2And, behold, there was a certain man before him which had
the dropsy. 3And Jesus answering spake unto the lawyers and Pharisees, saying, Is it lawful to heal
on the sabbath day? 4And they held their peace. And he took [him], and healed him, and let him
go; 5And answered them, saying, Which of you shall have an ass or an ox fallen into a pit, and will
not straightway pull him out on the sabbath day? 6And they could not answer him again to these
The Parable of the Guests
7And he put forth a parable to those which were bidden, when he marked how they chose out the
chief rooms; saying unto them, 8When thou art bidden of any [man] to a wedding, sit not down in
the highest room; lest a more honourable man than thou be bidden of him; 9And he that bade
thee and him come and say to thee, Give this man place; and thou begin with shame to take the
lowest room. 10But when thou art bidden, go and sit down in the lowest room; that when he that
bade thee cometh, he may say unto thee, Friend, go up higher: then shalt thou have worship in
the presence of them that sit at meat with thee. 11For whosoever exalteth himself shall be abased;
and he that humbleth himself shall be exalted.
12Then said he also to him that bade him, When thou makest a dinner or a supper, call not thy
friends, nor thy brethren, neither thy kinsmen, nor [thy] rich neighbours; lest they also bid thee
again, and a recompence be made thee. 13But when thou makest a feast, call the poor, the
maimed, the lame, the blind: 14And thou shalt be blessed; for they cannot recompense thee: for
thou shalt be recompensed at the resurrection of the just.
The Parable of the Banquet
15And when one of them that sat at meat with him heard these things, he said unto him, Blessed
[is] he that shall eat bread in the kingdom of God.
16Then said he unto him, A certain man made a great supper, and bade many: 17And sent his
servant at supper time to say to them that were bidden, Come; for all things are now ready. 18And
they all with one [consent] began to make excuse. The first said unto him, I have bought a piece of
ground, and I must needs go and see it: I pray thee have me excused. 19And another said, I have
bought five yoke of oxen, and I go to prove them: I pray thee have me excused. 20And another
said, I have married a wife, and therefore I cannot come. 21So that servant came, and shewed his
lord these things. Then the master of the house being angry said to his servant, Go out quickly into
the streets and lanes of the city, and bring in hither the poor, and the maimed, and the halt, and
the blind. 22And the servant said, Lord, it is done as thou hast commanded, and yet there is room.
23And the lord said unto the servant, Go out into the highways and hedges, and compel [them] to
come in, that my house may be filled. 24For I say unto you, That none of those men which were
bidden shall taste of my supper.
The Cost of Following Jesus
(Matthew 8:18-22; Luke 9:57-62; John 6:60-65)
25And there went great multitudes with him: and he turned, and said unto them, 26If any [man]
come to me, and hate not his father, and mother, and wife, and children, and brethren, and sisters,
yea, and his own life also, he cannot be my disciple. 27And whosoever doth not bear his cross, and
come after me, cannot be my disciple. 28For which of you, intending to build a tower, sitteth not
down first, and counteth the cost, whether he have [sufficient] to finish [it]? 29Lest haply, after he
hath laid the foundation, and is not able to finish [it], all that behold [it] begin to mock him,
30Saying, This man began to build, and was not able to finish. 31Or what king, going to make war
against another king, sitteth not down first, and consulteth whether he be able with ten thousand
to meet him that cometh against him with twenty thousand? 32Or else, while the other is yet a
great way off, he sendeth an ambassage, and desireth conditions of peace. 33So likewise,
whosoever he be of you that forsaketh not all that he hath, he cannot be my disciple.

The Parable of the Lost Sheep
1Then drew near unto him all the publicans and sinners for to hear him. 2And the Pharisees and
scribes murmured, saying, This man receiveth sinners, and eateth with them.
3And he spake this parable unto them, saying, 4What man of you, having an hundred sheep, if he
lose one of them, doth not leave the ninety and nine in the wilderness, and go after that which is
lost, until he find it? 5And when he hath found [it], he layeth [it] on his shoulders, rejoicing. 6And
when he cometh home, he calleth together [his] friends and neighbours, saying unto them, Rejoice
with me; for I have found my sheep which was lost. 7I say unto you, that likewise joy shall be in
heaven over one sinner that repenteth, more than over ninety and nine just persons, which need
The Parable of the Lost Coin
8Either what woman having ten pieces of silver, if she lose one piece, doth not light a candle, and
sweep the house, and seek diligently till she find [it]? 9And when she hath found [it], she calleth
[her] friends and [her] neighbours together, saying, Rejoice with me; for I have found the piece
which I had lost. 10Likewise, I say unto you, there is joy in the presence of the angels of God over
one sinner that repenteth.
The Parable of the Prodigal Son
11And he said, A certain man had two sons: 12And the younger of them said to [his] father, Father,
give me the portion of goods that falleth [to me]. And he divided unto them [his] living. 13And not
many days after the younger son gathered all together, and took his journey into a far country, and
there wasted his substance with riotous living. 14And when he had spent all, there arose a mighty
famine in that land; and he began to be in want. 15And he went and joined himself to a citizen of
that country; and he sent him into his fields to feed swine. 16And he would fain have filled his belly
with the husks that the swine did eat: and no man gave unto him. 17And when he came to himself,
he said, How many hired servants of my father's have bread enough and to spare, and I perish
with hunger! 18I will arise and go to my father, and will say unto him, Father, I have sinned against
heaven, and before thee, 19And am no more worthy to be called thy son: make me as one of thy
hired servants. 20And he arose, and came to his father. But when he was yet a great way off, his
father saw him, and had compassion, and ran, and fell on his neck, and kissed him. 21And the son
said unto him, Father, I have sinned against heaven, and in thy sight, and am no more worthy to
be called thy son. 22But the father said to his servants, Bring forth the best robe, and put [it] on
him; and put a ring on his hand, and shoes on [his] feet: 23And bring hither the fatted calf, and kill
[it]; and let us eat, and be merry: 24For this my son was dead, and is alive again; he was lost, and
is found. And they began to be merry.
25Now his elder son was in the field: and as he came and drew nigh to the house, he heard musick
and dancing. 26And he called one of the servants, and asked what these things meant. 27And he
said unto him, Thy brother is come; and thy father hath killed the fatted calf, because he hath
received him safe and sound. 28And he was angry, and would not go in: therefore came his father
out, and intreated him. 29And he answering said to [his] father, Lo, these many years do I serve
thee, neither transgressed I at any time thy commandment: and yet thou never gavest me a kid,
that I might make merry with my friends: 30But as soon as this thy son was come, which hath
devoured thy living with harlots, thou hast killed for him the fatted calf. 31And he said unto him,
Son, thou art ever with me, and all that I have is thine. 32It was meet that we should make merry,
and be glad: for this thy brother was dead, and is alive again; and was lost, and is found.

The Parable of the Unrighteous Steward
1And he said also unto his disciples, There was a certain rich man, which had a steward; and the
same was accused unto him that he had wasted his goods. 2And he called him, and said unto him,
How is it that I hear this of thee? give an account of thy stewardship; for thou mayest be no longer
steward. 3Then the steward said within himself, What shall I do? for my lord taketh away from me
the stewardship: I cannot dig; to beg I am ashamed. 4I am resolved what to do, that, when I am
put out of the stewardship, they may receive me into their houses. 5So he called every one of his
lord's debtors [unto him], and said unto the first, How much owest thou unto my lord? 6And he
said, An hundred measures of oil. And he said unto him, Take thy bill, and sit down quickly, and
write fifty. 7Then said he to another, And how much owest thou? And he said, An hundred
measures of wheat. And he said unto him, Take thy bill, and write fourscore. 8And the lord
commended the unjust steward, because he had done wisely: for the children of this world are in
their generation wiser than the children of light. 9And I say unto you, Make to yourselves friends of
the mammon of unrighteousness; that, when ye fail, they may receive you into everlasting
10He that is faithful in that which is least is faithful also in much: and he that is unjust in the least is
unjust also in much. 11If therefore ye have not been faithful in the unrighteous mammon, who will
commit to your trust the true [riches]? 12And if ye have not been faithful in that which is another
man's, who shall give you that which is your own? 13No servant 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.
The Law and the Prophets
(Matthew 11:7-19; Luke 1:5-25; Luke 7:24-35)
14And the Pharisees also, who were covetous, heard all these things: and they derided him. 15And
he said unto them, Ye are they which justify yourselves before men; but God knoweth your hearts:
for that which is highly esteemed among men is abomination in the sight of God.
16The law and the prophets [were] until John: since that time the kingdom of God is preached, and
every man presseth into it. 17And it is easier for heaven and earth to pass, than one tittle of the
law to fail.
(Deuteronomy 24:1-5; Matthew 5:31-32)
18Whosoever putteth away his wife, and marrieth another, committeth adultery: and whosoever
marrieth her that is put away from [her] husband committeth adultery.
The Parable of the Rich Man and Lazarus
19There was a certain rich man, which was clothed in purple and fine linen, and fared sumptuously
every day: 20And there was a certain beggar named Lazarus, which was laid at his gate, full of
sores, 21And desiring to be fed with the crumbs which fell from the rich man's table: moreover the
dogs came and licked his sores. 22And it came to pass, that the beggar died, and was carried by
the angels into Abraham's bosom: the rich man also died, and was buried; 23And in hell he lift up
his eyes, being in torments, and seeth Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom. 24And he cried
and said, Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus, that he may dip the tip of his
finger in water, and cool my tongue; for I am tormented in this flame. 25But Abraham said, Son,
remember that thou in thy lifetime receivedst thy good things, and likewise Lazarus evil things: but
now he is comforted, and thou art tormented. 26And beside all this, between us and you there is a
great gulf fixed: so that they which would pass from hence to you cannot; neither can they pass to
us, that [would come] from thence. 27Then he said, I pray thee therefore, father, that thou
wouldest send him to my father's house: 28For I have five brethren; that he may testify unto them,
lest they also come into this place of torment. 29Abraham saith unto him, They have Moses and the
prophets; let them hear them. 30And he said, Nay, father Abraham: but if one went unto them
from the dead, they will repent. 31And he said unto him, If they hear not Moses and the prophets,
neither will they be persuaded, though one rose from the dead.

Temptations and Trespasses
(Matthew 18:7-9; Mark 9:42-50)
1Then said he unto the disciples, It is impossible but that offences will come: but woe [unto him],
through whom they come! 2It were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck,
and he cast into the sea, than that he should offend one of these little ones. 3Take heed to
yourselves: If thy brother trespass against thee, rebuke him; and if he repent, forgive him. 4And if
he trespass against thee seven times in a day, and seven times in a day turn again to thee, saying,
I repent; thou shalt forgive him.
The Power of Faith
(Matthew 17:14-21; Mark 9:14-29; Luke 9:37-42)
5And the apostles said unto the Lord, Increase our faith. 6And the Lord said, If ye had faith as a
grain of mustard seed, ye might say unto this sycamine tree, Be thou plucked up by the root, and
be thou planted in the sea; and it should obey you.
7But which of you, having a servant plowing or feeding cattle, will say unto him by and by, when he
is come from the field, Go and sit down to meat? 8And will not rather say unto him, Make ready
wherewith I may sup, and gird thyself, and serve me, till I have eaten and drunken; and afterward
thou shalt eat and drink? 9Doth he thank that servant because he did the things that were
commanded him? I trow not. 10So likewise ye, when ye shall have done all those things which are
commanded you, say, We are unprofitable servants: we have done that which was our duty to do.
Jesus Heals Ten Lepers
(2 Kings 5:1-14)
11And it came to pass, as he went to Jerusalem, that he passed through the midst of Samaria and
Galilee. 12And as he entered into a certain village, there met him ten men that were lepers, which
stood afar off: 13And they lifted up [their] voices, and said, Jesus, Master, have mercy on us.
14And when he saw [them], he said unto them, Go shew yourselves unto the priests. And it came
to pass, that, as they went, they were cleansed. 15And one of them, when he saw that he was
healed, turned back, and with a loud voice glorified God, 16And fell down on [his] face at his feet,
giving him thanks: and he was a Samaritan. 17And Jesus answering said, Were there not ten
cleansed? but where [are] the nine? 18There are not found that returned to give glory to God, save
this stranger. 19And he said unto him, Arise, go thy way: thy faith hath made thee whole.
The Coming of the Kingdom
20And when he was demanded of the Pharisees, when the kingdom of God should come, he
answered them and said, The kingdom of God cometh not with observation: 21Neither shall they
say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you.
22And he said unto the disciples, The days will come, when ye shall desire to see one of the days of
the Son of man, and ye shall not see [it]. 23And they shall say to you, See here; or, see there: go
not after [them], nor follow [them]. 24For as the lightning, that lighteneth out of the one [part]
under heaven, shineth unto the other [part] under heaven; so shall also the Son of man be in his
day. 25But first must he suffer many things, and be rejected of this generation. 26And as it was in
the days of Noe, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man. 27They did eat, they drank, they
married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, and the
flood came, and destroyed them all. 28Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they
drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded; 29But the same day that Lot went out of
Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed [them] all. 30Even thus shall it be
in the day when the Son of man is revealed. 31In that day, he which shall be upon the housetop,
and his stuff in the house, let him not come down to take it away: and he that is in the field, let
him likewise not return back. 32Remember Lot's wife. 33Whosoever shall seek to save his life shall
lose it; and whosoever shall lose his life shall preserve it. 34I tell you, in that night there shall be
two [men] in one bed; the one shall be taken, and the other shall be left. 35Two [women] shall be
grinding together; the one shall be taken, and the other left. 36Two [men] shall be in the field; the
one shall be taken, and the other left. 37And they answered and said unto him, Where, Lord? And
he said unto them, Wheresoever the body [is], thither will the eagles be gathered together.

Parable of the Persistent Widow
1And he spake a parable unto them [to this end], that men ought always to pray, and not to faint;
2Saying, There was in a city a judge, which feared not God, neither regarded man: 3And there was
a widow in that city; and she came unto him, saying, Avenge me of mine adversary. 4And he
would not for a while: but afterward he said within himself, Though I fear not God, nor regard
man; 5Yet because this widow troubleth me, I will avenge her, lest by her continual coming she
weary me. 6And the Lord said, Hear what the unjust judge saith. 7And shall not God avenge his
own elect, which cry day and night unto him, though he bear long with them? 8I tell you that he
will avenge them speedily. Nevertheless when the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the
The Pharisee and Tax Collector
9And he spake this parable unto certain which trusted in themselves that they were righteous, and
despised others: 10Two men went up into the temple to pray; the one a Pharisee, and the other a
publican. 11The Pharisee stood and prayed thus with himself, God, I thank thee, that I am not as
other men [are], extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even as this publican. 12I fast twice in the
week, I give tithes of all that I possess. 13And the publican, standing afar off, would not lift up so
much as [his] eyes unto heaven, but smote upon his breast, saying, God be merciful to me a
sinner. 14I tell you, this man went down to his house justified [rather] than the other: for every
one that exalteth himself shall be abased; and he that humbleth himself shall be exalted.
Jesus Blesses the Children
(Matthew 19:13-15; Mark 10:13-16)
15And they brought unto him also infants, that he would touch them: but when [his] disciples saw
[it], they rebuked them. 16But Jesus called them [unto him], and said, Suffer little children to come
unto me, and forbid them not: for of such is the kingdom of God. 17Verily I say unto you,
Whosoever shall not receive the kingdom of God as a little child shall in no wise enter therein.
The Rich Young Ruler
(Matthew 19:16-30; Mark 10:17-31)
18And a certain ruler asked him, saying, Good Master, what shall I do to inherit eternal life? 19And
Jesus said unto him, Why callest thou me good? none [is] good, save one, [that is], God. 20Thou
knowest the commandments, Do not commit adultery, Do not kill, Do not steal, Do not bear false
witness, Honour thy father and thy mother. 21And he said, All these have I kept from my youth up.
22Now when Jesus heard these things, he said unto him, Yet lackest thou one thing: sell all that
thou hast, and distribute unto the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come, follow
me. 23And when he heard this, he was very sorrowful: for he was very rich. 24And when Jesus saw
that he was very sorrowful, he said, How hardly shall they that have riches enter into the kingdom
of God! 25For it is easier for a camel to go through a needle's eye, than for a rich man to enter into
the kingdom of God. 26And they that heard [it] said, Who then can be saved? 27And he said, The
things which are impossible with men are possible with God.
28Then Peter said, Lo, we have left all, and followed thee. 29And he said unto them, Verily I say
unto you, There is no man that hath left house, or parents, or brethren, or wife, or children, for the
kingdom of God's sake, 30Who shall not receive manifold more in this present time, and in the
world to come life everlasting.

31Then he took [unto him] the twelve, and said unto them, Behold, we go up to Jerusalem, and all

shall be delivered unto the Gentiles, and shall be mocked, and spitefully entreated, and spitted on:
33And they shall scourge [him], and put him to death: and the third day he shall rise again. 34And
they understood none of these things: and this saying was hid from them, neither knew they the
things which were spoken.

that Jesus of Nazareth passeth by. 38And he cried, saying, Jesus, [thou] Son of David, have mercy
on me. 39And they which went before rebuked him, that he should hold his peace: but he cried so
much the more, [Thou] Son of David, have mercy on me. 40And Jesus stood, and commanded him
to be brought unto him: and when he was come near, he asked him, 41Saying, What wilt thou that
I shall do unto thee? And he said, Lord, that I may receive my sight. 42And Jesus said unto him,
Receive thy sight: thy faith hath saved thee. 43And immediately he received his sight, and followed
him, glorifying God: and all the people, when they saw [it], gave praise unto God.

Jesus and Zacchaeus
1And [Jesus] entered and passed through Jericho. 2And, behold, [there was] a man named
Zacchaeus, which was the chief among the publicans, and he was rich. 3And he sought to see
Jesus who he was; and could not for the press, because he was little of stature. 4And he ran
before, and climbed up into a sycomore tree to see him: for he was to pass that [way]. 5And when
Jesus came to the place, he looked up, and saw him, and said unto him, Zacchaeus, make haste,
and come down; for to day I must abide at thy house. 6And he made haste, and came down, and
received him joyfully. 7And when they saw [it], they all murmured, saying, That he was gone to be
guest with a man that is a sinner. 8And Zacchaeus stood, and said unto the Lord; Behold, Lord, the
half of my goods I give to the poor; and if I have taken any thing from any man by false
accusation, I restore [him] fourfold. 9And Jesus said unto him, This day is salvation come to this
house, forsomuch as he also is a son of Abraham. 10For the Son of man is come to seek and to
save that which was lost.
The Parable of the Ten Minas
11And as they heard these things, he added and spake a parable, because he was nigh to
Jerusalem, and because they thought that the kingdom of God should immediately appear. 12He
said therefore, A certain nobleman went into a far country to receive for himself a kingdom, and to
return. 13And he called his ten servants, and delivered them ten pounds, and said unto them,
Occupy till I come. 14But his citizens hated him, and sent a message after him, saying, We will not
have this [man] to reign over us. 15And it came to pass, that when he was returned, having
received the kingdom, then he commanded these servants to be called unto him, to whom he had
given the money, that he might know how much every man had gained by trading. 16Then came
the first, saying, Lord, thy pound hath gained ten pounds. 17And he said unto him, Well, thou good
servant: because thou hast been faithful in a very little, have thou authority over ten cities. 18And
the second came, saying, Lord, thy pound hath gained five pounds. 19And he said likewise to him,
Be thou also over five cities. 20And another came, saying, Lord, behold, [here is] thy pound, which
I have kept laid up in a napkin: 21For I feared thee, because thou art an austere man: thou takest
up that thou layedst not down, and reapest that thou didst not sow. 22And he saith unto him, Out
of thine own mouth will I judge thee, [thou] wicked servant. Thou knewest that I was an austere
man, taking up that I laid not down, and reaping that I did not sow: 23Wherefore then gavest not
thou my money into the bank, that at my coming I might have required mine own with usury?
24And he said unto them that stood by, Take from him the pound, and give [it] to him that hath
ten pounds. 25(And they said unto him, Lord, he hath ten pounds.) 26For I say unto you, That unto
every one which hath shall be given; and from him that hath not, even that he hath shall be taken
away from him. 27But those mine enemies, which would not that I should reign over them, bring
hither, and slay [them] before me.
The Triumphal Entry
(Zechariah 9:9-13; Matthew 21:1-11; Mark 11:1-11; John 12:12-19)
28And when he had thus spoken, he went before, ascending up to Jerusalem.
29And it came to pass, when he was come nigh to Bethphage and Bethany, at the mount called [the
mount] of Olives, he sent two of his disciples, 30Saying, Go ye into the village over against [you];
in the which at your entering ye shall find a colt tied, whereon yet never man sat: loose him, and
bring [him hither]. 31And if any man ask you, Why do ye loose [him]? thus shall ye say unto him,
Because the Lord hath need of him. 32And they that were sent went their way, and found even as
he had said unto them. 33And as they were loosing the colt, the owners thereof said unto them,
Why loose ye the colt? 34And they said, The Lord hath need of him. 35And they brought him to
Jesus: and they cast their garments upon the colt, and they set Jesus thereon. 36And as he went,
they spread their clothes in the way. 37And when he was come nigh, even now at the descent of
the mount of Olives, the whole multitude of the disciples began to rejoice and praise God with a
loud voice for all the mighty works that they had seen;
38Saying, Blessed [be] the King that cometh in the name of the Lord: peace in heaven, and glory in
39And some of the Pharisees from among the multitude said unto him, Master, rebuke thy disciples.
40And he answered and said unto them, I tell you that, if these should hold their peace, the stones
would immediately cry out.
Jesus Weeps over Jerusalem
41And when he was come near, he beheld the city, and wept over it, 42Saying, If thou hadst
known, even thou, at least in this thy day, the things [which belong] unto thy peace! but now they
are hid from thine eyes. 43For the days shall come upon thee, that thine enemies shall cast a
trench about thee, and compass thee round, and keep thee in on every side, 44And shall lay thee
even with the ground, and thy children within thee; and they shall not leave in thee one stone
upon another; because thou knewest not the time of thy visitation.
Jesus Cleanses the Temple
(Matthew 21:12-17; Mark 11:15-19; John 2:12-25)
45And he went into the temple, and began to cast out them that sold therein, and them that
bought; 46Saying unto them, It is written, My house is the house of prayer: but ye have made it a
den of thieves.
47And he taught daily in the temple. But the chief priests and the scribes and the chief of the
people sought to destroy him, 48And could not find what they might do: for all the people were
very attentive to hear him.

Jesus' Authority Challenged
(Matthew 21:23-27; Mark 11:27-33)
1And it came to pass, [that] on one of those days, as he taught the people in the temple, and
preached the gospel, the chief priests and the scribes came upon [him] with the elders, 2And spake
unto him, saying, Tell us, by what authority doest thou these things? or who is he that gave thee
this authority? 3And he answered and said unto them, I will also ask you one thing; and answer
me: 4The baptism of John, was it from heaven, or of men? 5And they reasoned with themselves,
saying, If we shall say, From heaven; he will say, Why then believed ye him not? 6But and if we
say, Of men; all the people will stone us: for they be persuaded that John was a prophet. 7And
they answered, that they could not tell whence [it was]. 8And Jesus said unto them, Neither tell I
you by what authority I do these things.
The Parable of the Wicked Tenants
(Matthew 21:33-46; Mark 12:1-12)
9Then began he to speak to the people this parable; A certain man planted a vineyard, and let it
forth to husbandmen, and went into a far country for a long time. 10And at the season he sent a
servant to the husbandmen, that they should give him of the fruit of the vineyard: but the
husbandmen beat him, and sent [him] away empty. 11And again he sent another servant: and they
beat him also, and entreated [him] shamefully, and sent [him] away empty. 12And again he sent a
third: and they wounded him also, and cast [him] out. 13Then said the lord of the vineyard, What
shall I do? I will send my beloved son: it may be they will reverence [him] when they see him.
14But when the husbandmen saw him, they reasoned among themselves, saying, This is the heir:
come, let us kill him, that the inheritance may be ours. 15So they cast him out of the vineyard, and
killed [him]. What therefore shall the lord of the vineyard do unto them? 16He shall come and
destroy these husbandmen, and shall give the vineyard to others. And when they heard [it], they
said, God forbid.
17And he beheld them, and said, What is this then that is written, The stone which the builders
rejected, the same is become the head of the corner?
18Whosoever shall fall upon that stone shall be broken; but on whomsoever it shall fall, it will grind
him to powder.
Paying Taxes to Caesar
(Matthew 22:15-22; Mark 12:13-17)
19And the chief priests and the scribes the same hour sought to lay hands on him; and they feared
the people: for they perceived that he had spoken this parable against them. 20And they watched
[him], and sent forth spies, which should feign themselves just men, that they might take hold of
his words, that so they might deliver him unto the power and authority of the governor. 21And they
asked him, saying, Master, we know that thou sayest and teachest rightly, neither acceptest thou
the person [of any], but teachest the way of God truly: 22Is it lawful for us to give tribute unto
Caesar, or no? 23But he perceived their craftiness, and said unto them, Why tempt ye me? 24Shew
me a penny. Whose image and superscription hath it? They answered and said, Caesar's. 25And he
said unto them, Render therefore unto Caesar the things which be Caesar's, and unto God the
things which be God's. 26And they could not take hold of his words before the people: and they
marvelled at his answer, and held their peace.
Sadducees Question the Resurrection
(Matthew 22:23-33; Mark 12:18-27)
27Then came to [him] certain of the Sadducees, which deny that there is any resurrection; and they
asked him, 28Saying, Master, Moses wrote unto us, If any man's brother die, having a wife, and he
die without children, that his brother should take his wife, and raise up seed unto his brother.
29There were therefore seven brethren: and the first took a wife, and died without children. 30And
the second took her to wife, and he died childless. 31And the third took her; and in like manner the
seven also: and they left no children, and died. 32Last of all the woman died also. 33Therefore in
the resurrection whose wife of them is she? for seven had her to wife.
34And Jesus answering said unto them, The children of this world marry, and are given in marriage:
35But they which shall be accounted worthy to obtain that world, and the resurrection from the
dead, neither marry, nor are given in marriage: 36Neither can they die any more: for they are
equal unto the angels; and are the children of God, being the children of the resurrection. 37Now
that the dead are raised, even Moses shewed at the bush, when he calleth the Lord the God of
Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob. 38For he is not a God of the dead, but of
the living: for all live unto him. 39Then certain of the scribes answering said, Master, thou hast well
said. 40And after that they durst not ask him any [question at all].
Whose Son is the Christ?
(Matthew 22:41-46; Mark 12:35-37)
41And he said unto them, How say they that Christ is David's son?
42And David himself saith in the book of Psalms, The LORD said unto my Lord, Sit thou on my right
43Till I make thine enemies thy footstool. 44David therefore calleth him Lord, how is he then his
Beware of the Scribes
45Then in the audience of all the people he said unto his disciples, 46Beware of the scribes, which
desire to walk in long robes, and love greetings in the markets, and the highest seats in the
synagogues, and the chief rooms at feasts; 47Which devour widows' houses, and for a shew make
long prayers: the same shall receive greater damnation.

The Poor Widow's Offering
1And he looked up, and saw the rich men casting their gifts into the treasury. 2And he saw also a
certain poor widow casting in thither two mites. 3And he said, Of a truth I say unto you, that this
poor widow hath cast in more than they all: 4For all these have of their abundance cast in unto the
offerings of God: but she of her penury hath cast in all the living that she had.
Temple Destruction Foretold
(Matthew 24:1-4; Mark 13:1-9)
5And as some spake of the temple, how it was adorned with goodly stones and gifts, he said, 6[As
for] these things which ye behold, the days will come, in the which there shall not be left one stone
upon another, that shall not be thrown down.
7And they asked him, saying, Master, but when shall these things be? and what sign [will there be]
when these things shall come to pass? 8And he said, Take heed that ye be not deceived: for many
shall come in my name, saying, I am [Christ]; and the time draweth near: go ye not therefore after
them. 9But when ye shall hear of wars and commotions, be not terrified: for these things must first
come to pass; but the end [is] not by and by.
Witnessing to All Nations
(Matthew 24:9-14; Mark 13:10-13)
10Then said he unto them, Nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: 11And
great earthquakes shall be in divers places, and famines, and pestilences; and fearful sights and
great signs shall there be from heaven.
12But before all these, they shall lay their hands on you, and persecute [you], delivering [you] up to
the synagogues, and into prisons, being brought before kings and rulers for my name's sake.
13And it shall turn to you for a testimony. 14Settle [it] therefore in your hearts, not to meditate
before what ye shall answer: 15For I will give you a mouth and wisdom, which all your adversaries
shall not be able to gainsay nor resist. 16And ye shall be betrayed both by parents, and brethren,
and kinsfolks, and friends; and [some] of you shall they cause to be put to death. 17And ye shall
be hated of all [men] for my name's sake. 18But there shall not an hair of your head perish. 19In
your patience possess ye your souls.
The Destruction of Jerusalem
(Matthew 24:15-25; Mark 13:14-23)
20And when ye shall see Jerusalem compassed with armies, then know that the desolation thereof
is nigh. 21Then let them which are in Judaea flee to the mountains; and let them which are in the
midst of it depart out; and let not them that are in the countries enter thereinto. 22For these be the
days of vengeance, that all things which are written may be fulfilled. 23But woe unto them that are
with child, and to them that give suck, in those days! for there shall be great distress in the land,
and wrath upon this people. 24And they shall fall by the edge of the sword, and shall be led away
captive into all nations: and Jerusalem shall be trodden down of the Gentiles, until the times of the
Gentiles be fulfilled.
The Return of the Son of Man
(Matthew 24:26-31; Mark 13:24-27)
25And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth
distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring; 26Men's hearts failing them for
fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven
shall be shaken. 27And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great
glory. 28And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for
your redemption draweth nigh.
The lesson of the Fig Tree
(Matthew 24:32-35; Mark 13:28-31)
29And he spake to them a parable; Behold the fig tree, and all the trees; 30When they now shoot
forth, ye see and know of your own selves that summer is now nigh at hand. 31So likewise ye,
when ye see these things come to pass, know ye that the kingdom of God is nigh at hand. 32Verily
I say unto you, This generation shall not pass away, till all be fulfilled. 33Heaven and earth shall
pass away: but my words shall not pass away.
34And take heed to yourselves, lest at any time your hearts be overcharged with surfeiting, and
drunkenness, and cares of this life, and [so] that day come upon you unawares. 35For as a snare
shall it come on all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth. 36Watch ye therefore, and pray
always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to
stand before the Son of man.
37And in the day time he was teaching in the temple; and at night he went out, and abode in the
mount that is called [the mount] of Olives. 38And all the people came early in the morning to him
in the temple, for to hear him.

The Plot to Kill Jesus
(Matthew 26:1-5; Mark 14:1-2; John 11:45-57)
1Now the feast of unleavened bread drew nigh, which is called the Passover. 2And the chief priests
and scribes sought how they might kill him; for they feared the people.
3Then entered Satan into Judas surnamed Iscariot, being of the number of the twelve. 4And he
went his way, and communed with the chief priests and captains, how he might betray him unto
them. 5And they were glad, and covenanted to give him money. 6And he promised, and sought
opportunity to betray him unto them in the absence of the multitude.
The Last Supper
(Psalm 41:1-13; Matthew 26:17-25; Mark 14:12-21; John 13:18-30)
7Then came the day of unleavened bread, when the passover must be killed. 8And he sent Peter
and John, saying, Go and prepare us the passover, that we may eat. 9And they said unto him,
Where wilt thou that we prepare? 10And he said unto them, Behold, when ye are entered into the
city, there shall a man meet you, bearing a pitcher of water; follow him into the house where he
entereth in. 11And ye shall say unto the goodman of the house, The Master saith unto thee, Where
is the guestchamber, where I shall eat the passover with my disciples? 12And he shall shew you a
large upper room furnished: there make ready. 13And they went, and found as he had said unto
them: and they made ready the passover.
The Lord's Supper Instituted
(Matthew 26:26-30; Mark 14:22-26; 1 Corinthians 11:17-34)
14And when the hour was come, he sat down, and the twelve apostles with him. 15And he said
unto them, With desire I have desired to eat this passover with you before I suffer: 16For I say
unto you, I will not any more eat thereof, until it be fulfilled in the kingdom of God. 17And he took
the cup, and gave thanks, and said, Take this, and divide [it] among yourselves: 18For I say unto
you, I will not drink of the fruit of the vine, until the kingdom of God shall come. 19And he took
bread, and gave thanks, and brake [it], and gave unto them, saying, This is my body which is given
for you: this do in remembrance of me. 20Likewise also the cup after supper, saying, This cup [is]
the new testament in my blood, which is shed for you. 21But, behold, the hand of him that
betrayeth me [is] with me on the table. 22And truly the Son of man goeth, as it was determined:
but woe unto that man by whom he is betrayed! 23And they began to inquire among themselves,
which of them it was that should do this thing.
Who is the Greatest?
24And there was also a strife among them, which of them should be accounted the greatest. 25And
he said unto them, The kings of the Gentiles exercise lordship over them; and they that exercise
authority upon them are called benefactors. 26But ye [shall] not [be] so: but he that is greatest
among you, let him be as the younger; and he that is chief, as he that doth serve. 27For whether
[is] greater, he that sitteth at meat, or he that serveth? [is] not he that sitteth at meat? but I am
among you as he that serveth.
28Ye are they which have continued with me in my temptations. 29And I appoint unto you a
kingdom, as my Father hath appointed unto me; 30That ye may eat and drink at my table in my
kingdom, and sit on thrones judging the twelve tribes of Israel.
Jesus Predicts Peter's Denial
(Matthew 26:31-35; Mark 14:27-31; John 13:36-38)
31And the Lord said, Simon, Simon, behold, Satan hath desired [to have] you, that he may sift
[you] as wheat: 32But I have prayed for thee, that thy faith fail not: and when thou art converted,
strengthen thy brethren. 33And he said unto him, Lord, I am ready to go with thee, both into
prison, and to death. 34And he said, I tell thee, Peter, the cock shall not crow this day, before that
thou shalt thrice deny that thou knowest me.
35And he said unto them, When I sent you without purse, and scrip, and shoes, lacked ye any
thing? And they said, Nothing. 36Then said he unto them, But now, he that hath a purse, let him
take [it], and likewise [his] scrip: and he that hath no sword, let him sell his garment, and buy one.
37For I say unto you, that this that is written must yet be accomplished in me, And he was
reckoned among the transgressors: for the things concerning me have an end. 38And they said,
Lord, behold, here [are] two swords. And he said unto them, It is enough.
Jesus Prays on the Mount of Olives
(Matthew 26:36-46; Mark 14:32-42)
39And he came out, and went, as he was wont, to the mount of Olives; and his disciples also
followed him. 40And when he was at the place, he said unto them, Pray that ye enter not into
temptation. 41And he was withdrawn from them about a stone's cast, and kneeled down, and
prayed, 42Saying, Father, if thou be willing, remove this cup from me: nevertheless not my will, but
thine, be done. 43And there appeared an angel unto him from heaven, strengthening him. 44And
being in an agony he prayed more earnestly: and his sweat was as it were great drops of blood
falling down to the ground. 45And when he rose up from prayer, and was come to his disciples, he
found them sleeping for sorrow, 46And said unto them, Why sleep ye? rise and pray, lest ye enter
Jesus' Betrayal and Arrest
(Matthew 26:47-56; Mark 14:43-52; John 18:1-14)
47And while he yet spake, behold a multitude, and he that was called Judas, one of the twelve,
went before them, and drew near unto Jesus to kiss him. 48But Jesus said unto him, Judas,
betrayest thou the Son of man with a kiss? 49When they which were about him saw what would
follow, they said unto him, Lord, shall we smite with the sword? 50And one of them smote the
servant of the high priest, and cut off his right ear. 51And Jesus answered and said, Suffer ye thus
far. And he touched his ear, and healed him. 52Then Jesus said unto the chief priests, and captains
of the temple, and the elders, which were come to him, Be ye come out, as against a thief, with
swords and staves? 53When I was daily with you in the temple, ye stretched forth no hands against
me: but this is your hour, and the power of darkness.
Peter Denies Jesus
(Matthew 26:69-75; Mark 14:66-72; John 18:15-18)
54Then took they him, and led [him], and brought him into the high priest's house. And Peter
followed afar off. 55And when they had kindled a fire in the midst of the hall, and were set down
together, Peter sat down among them. 56But a certain maid beheld him as he sat by the fire, and
earnestly looked upon him, and said, This man was also with him. 57And he denied him, saying,
Woman, I know him not. 58And after a little while another saw him, and said, Thou art also of
them. And Peter said, Man, I am not. 59And about the space of one hour after another confidently
affirmed, saying, Of a truth this [fellow] also was with him: for he is a Galilaean. 60And Peter said,
Man, I know not what thou sayest. And immediately, while he yet spake, the cock crew. 61And the
Lord turned, and looked upon Peter. And Peter remembered the word of the Lord, how he had said
unto him, Before the cock crow, thou shalt deny me thrice. 62And Peter went out, and wept
The Soldiers Mock Jesus
(Isaiah 50:4-11; Matthew 27:27-31; Mark 15:16-20; John 19:1-15)
63And the men that held Jesus mocked him, and smote [him]. 64And when they had blindfolded
him, they struck him on the face, and asked him, saying, Prophesy, who is it that smote thee?
65And many other things blasphemously spake they against him.
Jesus Before the Council
66And as soon as it was day, the elders of the people and the chief priests and the scribes came
together, and led him into their council, saying, 67Art thou the Christ? tell us. And he said unto
them, If I tell you, ye will not believe: 68And if I also ask [you], ye will not answer me, nor let [me]
go. 69Hereafter shall the Son of man sit on the right hand of the power of God. 70Then said they
all, Art thou then the Son of God? And he said unto them, Ye say that I am. 71And they said, What
need we any further witness? for we ourselves have heard of his own mouth.

Jesus Before Pilate
(Matthew 27:11-14; John 18:28-40)
1And the whole multitude of them arose, and led him unto Pilate. 2And they began to accuse him,
saying, We found this [fellow] perverting the nation, and forbidding to give tribute to Caesar,
saying that he himself is Christ a King. 3And Pilate asked him, saying, Art thou the King of the
Jews? And he answered him and said, Thou sayest [it]. 4Then said Pilate to the chief priests and
[to] the people, I find no fault in this man. 5And they were the more fierce, saying, He stirreth up
the people, teaching throughout all Jewry, beginning from Galilee to this place.
6When Pilate heard of Galilee, he asked whether the man were a Galilaean.
Jesus Before Herod
7And as soon as he knew that he belonged unto Herod's jurisdiction, he sent him to Herod, who
himself also was at Jerusalem at that time.
8And when Herod saw Jesus, he was exceeding glad: for he was desirous to see him of a long
[season], because he had heard many things of him; and he hoped to have seen some miracle
done by him. 9Then he questioned with him in many words; but he answered him nothing. 10And
the chief priests and scribes stood and vehemently accused him. 11And Herod with his men of war
set him at nought, and mocked [him], and arrayed him in a gorgeous robe, and sent him again to
Pilate. 12And the same day Pilate and Herod were made friends together: for before they were at
enmity between themselves.
The Crowd Chooses Barabbas
(Matthew 27:15-23; Mark 15:6-11)
13And Pilate, when he had called together the chief priests and the rulers and the people, 14Said
unto them, Ye have brought this man unto me, as one that perverteth the people: and, behold, I,
having examined [him] before you, have found no fault in this man touching those things whereof
ye accuse him: 15No, nor yet Herod: for I sent you to him; and, lo, nothing worthy of death is done
unto him. 16I will therefore chastise him, and release [him]. 17(For of necessity he must release
one unto them at the feast.)
18And they cried out all at once, saying, Away with this [man], and release unto us Barabbas:
19(Who for a certain sedition made in the city, and for murder, was cast into prison.) 20Pilate
therefore, willing to release Jesus, spake again to them. 21But they cried, saying, Crucify [him],
crucify him. 22And he said unto them the third time, Why, what evil hath he done? I have found no
cause of death in him: I will therefore chastise him, and let [him] go. 23And they were instant with
loud voices, requiring that he might be crucified. And the voices of them and of the chief priests
prevailed. 24And Pilate gave sentence that it should be as they required. 25And he released unto
them him that for sedition and murder was cast into prison, whom they had desired; but he
delivered Jesus to their will.
(Psalm 69:1-36; Matthew 27:32-44; Mark 15:21-32; John 19:16-27)
26And as they led him away, they laid hold upon one Simon, a Cyrenian, coming out of the country,
and on him they laid the cross, that he might bear [it] after Jesus.
27And there followed him a great company of people, and of women, which also bewailed and
lamented him. 28But Jesus turning unto them said, Daughters of Jerusalem, weep not for me, but
weep for yourselves, and for your children. 29For, behold, the days are coming, in the which they
shall say, Blessed [are] the barren, and the wombs that never bare, and the paps which never gave
suck. 30Then shall they begin to say to the mountains, Fall on us; and to the hills, Cover us. 31For
if they do these things in a green tree, what shall be done in the dry?
32And there were also two other, malefactors, led with him to be put to death.
33And when they were come to the place, which is called Calvary, there they crucified him, and the
malefactors, one on the right hand, and the other on the left. 34Then said Jesus, Father, forgive
them; for they know not what they do. And they parted his raiment, and cast lots. 35And the
people stood beholding. And the rulers also with them derided [him], saying, He saved others; let
him save himself, if he be Christ, the chosen of God. 36And the soldiers also mocked him, coming
to him, and offering him vinegar, 37And saying, If thou be the king of the Jews, save thyself. 38And
a superscription also was written over him in letters of Greek, and Latin, and Hebrew, THIS IS THE
KING OF THE JEWS.
39And one of the malefactors which were hanged railed on him, saying, If thou be Christ, save
thyself and us. 40But the other answering rebuked him, saying, Dost not thou fear God, seeing
thou art in the same condemnation? 41And we indeed justly; for we receive the due reward of our
deeds: but this man hath done nothing amiss. 42And he said unto Jesus, Lord, remember me when
thou comest into thy kingdom. 43And Jesus said unto him, Verily I say unto thee, To day shalt thou
be with me in paradise.
The Death of Jesus
(Psalm 22:1-31; Matthew 27:45-56; Mark 15:33-41; John 19:28-30)
44And it was about the sixth hour, and there was a darkness over all the earth until the ninth hour.
45And the sun was darkened, and the veil of the temple was rent in the midst. 46And when Jesus
had cried with a loud voice, he said, Father, into thy hands I commend my spirit: and having said
thus, he gave up the ghost. 47Now when the centurion saw what was done, he glorified God,
saying, Certainly this was a righteous man. 48And all the people that came together to that sight,
beholding the things which were done, smote their breasts, and returned. 49And all his
acquaintance, and the women that followed him from Galilee, stood afar off, beholding these

(Isaiah 53:9-12; Matthew 27:57-61; Mark 15:42-47; John 19:38-42)
50And, behold, [there was] a man named Joseph, a counseller; [and he was] a good man, and a
just: 51(The same had not consented to the counsel and deed of them;) [he was] of Arimathaea, a
city of the Jews: who also himself waited for the kingdom of God. 52This [man] went unto Pilate,
and begged the body of Jesus. 53And he took it down, and wrapped it in linen, and laid it in a
sepulchre that was hewn in stone, wherein never man before was laid. 54And that day was the
preparation, and the sabbath drew on. 55And the women also, which came with him from Galilee,
followed after, and beheld the sepulchre, and how his body was laid. 56And they returned, and
prepared spices and ointments; and rested the sabbath day according to the commandment.

bringing the spices which they had prepared, and certain [others] with them. 2And they found the
stone rolled away from the sepulchre. 3And they entered in, and found not the body of the Lord
Jesus. 4And it came to pass, as they were much perplexed thereabout, behold, two men stood by
them in shining garments: 5And as they were afraid, and bowed down [their] faces to the earth,
they said unto them, Why seek ye the living among the dead? 6He is not here, but is risen:
remember how he spake unto you when he was yet in Galilee, 7Saying, The Son of man must be
delivered into the hands of sinful men, and be crucified, and the third day rise again. 8And they
remembered his words, 9And returned from the sepulchre, and told all these things unto the
eleven, and to all the rest. 10It was Mary Magdalene, and Joanna, and Mary [the mother] of James,
and other [women that were] with them, which told these things unto the apostles. 11And their
words seemed to them as idle tales, and they believed them not. 12Then arose Peter, and ran unto
the sepulchre; and stooping down, he beheld the linen clothes laid by themselves, and departed,
wondering in himself at that which was come to pass.
The Road to Emmaus
13And, behold, two of them went that same day to a village called Emmaus, which was from
Jerusalem [about] threescore furlongs. 14And they talked together of all these things which had
happened. 15And it came to pass, that, while they communed [together] and reasoned, Jesus
himself drew near, and went with them. 16But their eyes were holden that they should not know
him. 17And he said unto them, What manner of communications [are] these that ye have one to
another, as ye walk, and are sad? 18And the one of them, whose name was Cleopas, answering
said unto him, Art thou only a stranger in Jerusalem, and hast not known the things which are
come to pass there in these days? 19And he said unto them, What things? And they said unto him,
Concerning Jesus of Nazareth, which was a prophet mighty in deed and word before God and all
the people: 20And how the chief priests and our rulers delivered him to be condemned to death,
and have crucified him. 21But we trusted that it had been he which should have redeemed Israel:
and beside all this, to day is the third day since these things were done. 22Yea, and certain women
also of our company made us astonished, which were early at the sepulchre; 23And when they
found not his body, they came, saying, that they had also seen a vision of angels, which said that
he was alive. 24And certain of them which were with us went to the sepulchre, and found [it] even
so as the women had said: but him they saw not.
Jesus Explains the Prophecies
25Then he said unto them, O fools, and slow of heart to believe all that the prophets have spoken:
26Ought not Christ to have suffered these things, and to enter into his glory? 27And beginning at
Moses and all the prophets, he expounded unto them in all the scriptures the things concerning
28And they drew nigh unto the village, whither they went: and he made as though he would have
gone further. 29But they constrained him, saying, Abide with us: for it is toward evening, and the
day is far spent. And he went in to tarry with them. 30And it came to pass, as he sat at meat with
them, he took bread, and blessed [it], and brake, and gave to them. 31And their eyes were
opened, and they knew him; and he vanished out of their sight. 32And they said one to another,
Did not our heart burn within us, while he talked with us by the way, and while he opened to us
the scriptures? 33And they rose up the same hour, and returned to Jerusalem, and found the
eleven gathered together, and them that were with them, 34Saying, The Lord is risen indeed, and
hath appeared to Simon. 35And they told what things [were done] in the way, and how he was
known of them in breaking of bread.
Jesus Appears to the Disciples
(John 20:19-23; 1 John 1:1-4)
36And as they thus spake, Jesus himself stood in the midst of them, and saith unto them, Peace
[be] unto you. 37But they were terrified and affrighted, and supposed that they had seen a spirit.
38And he said unto them, Why are ye troubled? and why do thoughts arise in your hearts?
39Behold my hands and my feet, that it is I myself: handle me, and see; for a spirit hath not flesh
and bones, as ye see me have. 40And when he had thus spoken, he shewed them [his] hands and
[his] feet. 41And while they yet believed not for joy, and wondered, he said unto them, Have ye
here any meat? 42And they gave him a piece of a broiled fish, and of an honeycomb. 43And he
took [it], and did eat before them.
Jesus Opens the Meaning of Scriptures
44And he said unto them, These [are] the words which I spake unto you, while I was yet with you,
that all things must be fulfilled, which were written in the law of Moses, and [in] the prophets, and
[in] the psalms, concerning me. 45Then opened he their understanding, that they might
understand the scriptures, 46And said unto them, Thus it is written, and thus it behoved Christ to
suffer, and to rise from the dead the third day: 47And that repentance and remission of sins should
be preached in his name among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem. 48And ye are witnesses of
these things. 49And, behold, I send the promise of my Father upon you: but tarry ye in the city of
Jerusalem, until ye be endued with power from on high.
(Mark 16:19-20; Acts 1:6-11)
50And he led them out as far as to Bethany, and he lifted up his hands, and blessed them. 51And it
came to pass, while he blessed them, he was parted from them, and carried up into heaven. 52And
they worshipped him, and returned to Jerusalem with great joy: 53And were continually in the
temple, praising and blessing God. Amen.
