Matthew Mark Luke John
      Joh 1:1-5 :  1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God;  2 this one was in the beginning with God;  3 all things through him did happen, and without him happened not even one thing that hath happened.  4 In him was life, and the life was the light of men,  5 and the light in the darkness did shine, and the darkness did not perceive it.

      Joh 1:6-14 :  6 There came a man -- having been sent from God -- whose name is John,  7 this one came for testimony, that he might testify about the Light, that all might believe through him;  8 that one was not the Light, but -- that he might testify about the Light.  9 He was the true Light, which doth enlighten every man, coming to the world;  10 in the world he was, and the world through him was made, and the world did not know him:  11 to his own things he came, and his own people did not receive him;  12 but as many as did receive him to them he gave authority to become sons of God -- to those believing in his name,  13 who -- not of blood nor of a will of flesh, nor of a will of man but -- of God were begotten.  14 And the Word became flesh, and did tabernacle among us, and we beheld his glory, glory as of an only begotten of a father, full of grace and truth.

    Luk 1 :  1 Seeing that many did take in hand to set in order a narration of the matters that have been fully assured among us,  2 as they did deliver to us, who from the beginning became eye-witnesses, and officers of the Word, --  3 it seemed good also to me, having followed from the first after all things exactly, to write to thee in order, most noble Theophilus,  4 that thou mayest know the certainty of the things wherein thou wast instructed.  5 There was in the days of Herod, the king of Judea, a certain priest, by name Zacharias, of the course of Abijah, and his wife of the daughters of Aaron, and her name Elisabeth;  6 and they were both righteous before God, going on in all the commands and righteousnesses of the Lord blameless,  7 and they had no child, because that Elisabeth was barren, and both were advanced in their days.  8 And it came to pass, in his acting as priest, in the order of his course before God,  9 according to the custom of the priesthood, his lot was to make perfume, having gone into the sanctuary of the Lord,  10 and all the multitude of the people were praying without, at the hour of the perfume.  11 And there appeared to him a messenger of the Lord standing on the right side of the altar of the perfume,  12 and Zacharias, having seen, was troubled, and fear fell on him;  13 and the messenger said unto him, 'Fear not, Zacharias, for thy supplication was heard, and thy wife Elisabeth shall bear a son to thee, and thou shalt call his name John,  14 and there shall be joy to thee, and gladness, and many at his birth shall joy,  15 for he shall be great before the Lord, and wine and strong drink he may not drink, and of the Holy Spirit he shall be full, even from his mother's womb;  16 and many of the sons of Israel he shall turn to the Lord their God,  17 and he shall go before Him, in the spirit and power of Elijah, to turn hearts of fathers unto children, and disobedient ones to the wisdom of righteous ones, to make ready for the Lord, a people prepared.'  18 And Zacharias said unto the messenger, 'Whereby shall I know this? for I am aged, and my wife is advanced in her days?'  19 And the messenger answering said to him, 'I am Gabriel, who have been standing near before God, and I was sent to speak unto thee, and to proclaim these good news to thee,  20 and lo, thou shalt be silent, and not able to speak, till the day that these things shall come to pass, because thou didst not believe my words, that shall be fulfilled in their season.'  21 And the people were waiting for Zacharias, and wondering at his tarrying in the sanctuary,  22 and having come out, he was not able to speak to them, and they perceived that a vision he had seen in the sanctuary, and he was beckoning to them, and did remain dumb.  23 And it came to pass, when the days of his service were fulfilled, he went away to his house,  24 and after those days, his wife Elisabeth conceived, and hid herself five months, saying --  25 'Thus hath the Lord done to me, in days in which He looked upon me, to take away my reproach among men.'  26 And in the sixth month was the messenger Gabriel sent by God, to a city of Galilee, the name of which is Nazareth,  27 to a virgin, betrothed to a man, whose name is Joseph, of the house of David, and the name of the virgin is Mary.  28 And the messenger having come in unto her, said, 'Hail, favoured one, the Lord is with thee; blessed art thou among women;'  29 and she, having seen, was troubled at his word, and was reasoning of what kind this salutation may be.  30 And the messenger said to her, 'Fear not, Mary, for thou hast found favour with God;  31 and lo, thou shalt conceive in the womb, and shalt bring forth a son, and call his name Jesus;  32 he shall be great, and Son of the Highest he shall be called, and the Lord God shall give him the throne of David his father,  33 and he shall reign over the house of Jacob to the ages; and of his reign there shall be no end.'  34 And Mary said unto the messenger, 'How shall this be, seeing a husband I do not know?'  35 And the messenger answering said to her, 'The Holy Spirit shall come upon thee, and the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee, therefore also the holy-begotten thing shall be called Son of God;  36 and lo, Elisabeth, thy kinswoman, she also hath conceived a son in her old age, and this is the sixth month to her who was called barren;  37 because nothing shall be impossible with God.'  38 And Mary said, 'Lo, the maid-servant of the Lord; let it be to me according to thy saying,' and the messenger went away from her.  39 And Mary having arisen in those days, went to the hill-country, with haste, to a city of Judea,  40 and entered into the house of Zacharias, and saluted Elisabeth.  41 And it came to pass, when Elisabeth heard the salutation of Mary, the babe did leap in her womb; and Elisabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit,  42 and spake out with a loud voice, and said, 'Blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb;  43 and whence is this to me, that the mother of my Lord might come unto me?  44 for, lo, when the voice of thy salutation came to my ears, leap in gladness did the babe in my womb;  45 and happy is she who did believe, for there shall be a completion to the things spoken to her from the Lord.'  46 And Mary said, 'My soul doth magnify the Lord,  47 And my spirit was glad on God my Saviour,  48 Because He looked on the lowliness of His maid-servant, For, lo, henceforth call me happy shall all the generations,  49 For He who is mighty did to me great things, And holy is His name,  50 And His kindness is to generations of generations, To those fearing Him,  51 He did powerfully with His arm, He scattered abroad the proud in the thought of their heart,  52 He brought down the mighty from thrones, And He exalted the lowly,  53 The hungry He did fill with good, And the rich He sent away empty,  54 He received again Israel His servant, To remember kindness,  55 As He spake unto our fathers, To Abraham and to his seed -- to the age.'  56 And Mary remained with her about three months, and turned back to her house.  57 And to Elisabeth was the time fulfilled for her bringing forth, and she bare a son,  58 and the neighbours and her kindred heard that the Lord was making His kindness great with her, and they were rejoicing with her.  59 And it came to pass, on the eighth day, they came to circumcise the child, and they were calling him by the name of his father, Zacharias,  60 and his mother answering said, 'No, but he shall be called John.'  61 And they said unto her -- 'There is none among thy kindred who is called by this name,'  62 and they were making signs to his father, what he would wish him to be called,  63 and having asked for a tablet, he wrote, saying, 'John is his name;' and they did all wonder;  64 and his mouth was opened presently, and his tongue, and he was speaking, praising God.  65 And fear came upon all those dwelling around them, and in all the hill-country of Judea were all these sayings spoken of,  66 and all who heard did lay them up in their hearts, saying, 'What then shall this child be?' and the hand of the Lord was with him.  67 And Zacharias his father was filled with the Holy Spirit, and did prophesy, saying,  68 'Blessed is the Lord, the God of Israel, Because He did look upon, And wrought redemption for His people,  69 And did raise an horn of salvation to us, In the house of David His servant,  70 As He spake by the mouth of His holy prophets, Which have been from the age;  71 Salvation from our enemies, And out of the hand of all hating us,  72 To do kindness with our fathers, And to be mindful of His holy covenant,  73 An oath that He sware to Abraham our father,  74 To give to us, without fear, Out of the hand of our enemies having been delivered,  75 To serve Him, in holiness and righteousness Before Him, all the days of our life.  76 And thou, child, Prophet of the Highest Shalt thou be called; For thou shalt go before the face of the Lord, To prepare His ways.  77 To give knowledge of salvation to His people In remission of their sins,  78 Through the tender mercies of our God, In which the rising from on high did look upon us,  79 To give light to those sitting in darkness and death-shade, To guide our feet to a way of peace.'  80 And the child grew, and was strengthened in spirit, and he was in the deserts till the day of his shewing unto Israel.

    Luk 2:1-7 :  1 And it came to pass in those days, there went forth a decree from Caesar Augustus, that all the world be enrolled --  2 this enrollment first came to pass when Cyrenius was governor of Syria --  3 and all were going to be enrolled, each to his proper city,  4 and Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, to Judea, to the city of David, that is called Bethlehem, because of his being of the house and family of David,  5 to enroll himself with Mary his betrothed wife, being with child.  6 And it came to pass, in their being there, the days were fulfilled for her bringing forth,  7 and she brought forth her son -- the first-born, and wrapped him up, and laid him down in the manger, because there was not for them a place in the guest-chamber.

Mat 1 :  1 A roll of the birth of Jesus Christ, son of David, son of Abraham.  2 Abraham begat Isaac, and Isaac begat Jacob, and Jacob begat Judah and his brethren,  3 and Judah begat Pharez and Zarah of Tamar, and Pharez begat Hezron, and Hezron begat Ram,  4 and Ram begat Amminadab, and Amminadab begat Nahshon, and Nahshon begat Salmon,  5 and Salmon begat Boaz of Rahab, and Boaz begat Obed of Ruth, and Obed begat Jesse,  6 and Jesse begat David the king. And David the king begat Solomon, of her who had been Uriah's,  7 and Solomon begat Rehoboam, and Rehoboam begat Abijah, and Abijah begat Asa,  8 and Asa begat Jehoshaphat, and Jehoshaphat begat Joram, and Joram begat Uzziah,  9 and Uzziah begat Jotham, and Jotham begat Ahaz, and Ahaz begat Hezekiah,  10 and Hezekiah begat Manasseh, and Manasseh begat Amon, and Amon begat Josiah,  11 and Josiah begat Jeconiah and his brethren, at the Babylonian removal.  12 And after the Babylonian removal, Jeconiah begat Shealtiel, and Shealtiel begat Zerubbabel,  13 and Zerubbabel begat Abiud, and Abiud begat Eliakim, and Eliakim begat Azor,  14 and Azor begat Sadok, and Sadok begat Achim, and Achim begat Eliud,  15 and Eliud begat Eleazar, and Eleazar begat Matthan, and Matthan begat Jacob,  16 and Jacob begat Joseph, the husband of Mary, of whom was begotten Jesus, who is named Christ.  17 All the generations, therefore, from Abraham unto David are fourteen generations, and from David unto the Babylonian removal fourteen generations, and from the Babylonian removal unto the Christ, fourteen generations.  18 And of Jesus Christ, the birth was thus: For his mother Mary having been betrothed to Joseph, before their coming together she was found to have conceived from the Holy Spirit,  19 and Joseph her husband being righteous, and not willing to make her an example, did wish privately to send her away.  20 And on his thinking of these things, lo, a messenger of the Lord in a dream appeared to him, saying, 'Joseph, son of David, thou mayest not fear to receive Mary thy wife, for that which in her was begotten is of the Holy Spirit,  21 and she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name Jesus, for he shall save his people from their sins.'  22 And all this hath come to pass, that it may be fulfilled that was spoken by the Lord through the prophet, saying,  23 'Lo, the virgin shall conceive, and she shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel,' which is, being interpreted 'With us he is God.'  24 And Joseph, having risen from the sleep, did as the messenger of the Lord directed him, and received his wife,  25 and did not know her till she brought forth her son -- the first-born, and he called his name Jesus.

    Luk 2:8-39 :  8 And there were shepherds in the same region, lodging in the field, and keeping the night-watches over their flock,  9 and lo, a messenger of the Lord stood over them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they feared a great fear.  10 And the messenger said to them, 'Fear not, for lo, I bring you good news of great joy, that shall be to all the people --  11 because there was born to you to-day a Saviour -- who is Christ the Lord -- in the city of David,  12 and this is to you the sign: Ye shall find a babe wrapped up, lying in the manger.'  13 And suddenly there came with the messenger a multitude of the heavenly host, praising God, and saying,  14 'Glory in the highest to God, and upon earth peace, among men -- good will.'  15 And it came to pass, when the messengers were gone away from them to the heavens, that the men, the shepherds, said unto one another, 'We may go over indeed unto Bethlehem, and see this thing that hath come to pass, that the Lord did make known to us.'  16 And they came, having hasted, and found both Mary, and Joseph, and the babe lying in the manger,  17 and having seen, they made known abroad concerning the saying spoken to them concerning the child.  18 And all who heard, did wonder concerning the things spoken by the shepherds unto them;  19 and Mary was preserving all these things, pondering in her heart;  20 and the shepherds turned back, glorifying and praising God, for all those things they heard and saw, as it was spoken unto them.  21 And when eight days were fulfilled to circumcise the child, then was his name called Jesus, having been so called by the messenger before his being conceived in the womb.  22 And when the days of their purification were fulfilled, according to the law of Moses, they brought him up to Jerusalem, to present to the Lord,  23 as it hath been written in the Law of the Lord, -- 'Every male opening a womb shall be called holy to the Lord,'  24 and to give a sacrifice, according to that said in the Law of the Lord, 'A pair of turtle-doves, or two young pigeons.'  25 And lo, there was a man in Jerusalem, whose name is Simeon, and this man is righteous and devout, looking for the comforting of Israel, and the Holy Spirit was upon him,  26 and it hath been divinely told him by the Holy Spirit -- not to see death before he may see the Christ of the Lord.  27 And he came in the Spirit to the temple, and in the parents bringing in the child Jesus, for their doing according to the custom of the law regarding him,  28 then he took him in his arms, and blessed God, and he said,  29 'Now Thou dost send away Thy servant, Lord, according to Thy word, in peace,  30 because mine eyes did see Thy salvation,  31 which Thou didst prepare before the face of all the peoples,  32 a light to the uncovering of nations, and the glory of Thy people Israel.'  33 And Joseph and his mother were wondering at the things spoken concerning him,  34 and Simeon blessed them, and said unto Mary his mother, 'Lo, this one is set for the falling and rising again of many in Israel, and for a sign spoken against --  35 (and also thine own soul shall a sword pass through) -- that the reasonings of many hearts may be revealed.'  36 And there was Anna, a prophetess, daughter of Phanuel, of the tribe of Asher, she was much advanced in days, having lived with an husband seven years from her virginity,  37 and she is a widow of about eighty-four years, who did depart not from the temple, with fasts and supplications serving, night and day,  38 and she, at that hour, having come in, was confessing, likewise, to the Lord, and was speaking concerning him, to all those looking for redemption in Jerusalem.  39 And when they finished all things, according to the Law of the Lord, they turned back to Galilee, to their city Nazareth;

Mat 2:2-23 :  2 saying, 'Where is he who was born king of the Jews? for we saw his star in the east, and we came to bow to him.'  3 And Herod the king having heard, was stirred, and all Jerusalem with him,  4 and having gathered all the chief priests and scribes of the people, he was inquiring from them where the Christ is born.  5 And they said to him, 'In Beth-Lehem of Judea, for thus it hath been written through the prophet,  6 And thou, Beth-Lehem, the land of Judah, thou art by no means the least among the leaders of Judah, for out of thee shall come one leading, who shall feed My people Israel.'  7 Then Herod, privately having called the mages, did inquire exactly from them the time of the appearing star,  8 and having sent them to Beth-Lehem, he said, 'Having gone -- inquire ye exactly for the child, and whenever ye may have found, bring me back word, that I also having come may bow to him.'  9 And they, having heard the king, departed, and lo, the star, that they did see in the east, did go before them, till, having come, it stood over where the child was.  10 And having seen the star, they rejoiced with exceeding great joy,  11 and having come to the house, they found the child with Mary his mother, and having fallen down they bowed to him, and having opened their treasures, they presented to him gifts, gold, and frankincense, and myrrh,  12 and having been divinely warned in a dream not to turn back unto Herod, through another way they withdrew to their own region.  13 And on their having withdrawn, lo, a messenger of the Lord doth appear in a dream to Joseph, saying, 'Having risen, take the child and his mother, and flee to Egypt, and be thou there till I may speak to thee, for Herod is about to seek the child to destroy him.'  14 And he, having risen, took the child and his mother by night, and withdrew to Egypt,  15 and he was there till the death of Herod, that it might be fulfilled that was spoken by the Lord through the prophet, saying, 'Out of Egypt I did call My Son.'  16 Then Herod, having seen that he was deceived by the mages, was very wroth, and having sent forth, he slew all the male children in Beth-Lehem, and in all its borders, from two years and under, according to the time that he inquired exactly from the mages.  17 Then was fulfilled that which was spoken by Jeremiah the prophet, saying,  18 'A voice in Ramah was heard -- lamentation and weeping and much mourning -- Rachel weeping for her children, and she would not be comforted because they are not.'  19 And Herod having died, lo, a messenger of the Lord in a dream doth appear to Joseph in Egypt,  20 saying, 'Having risen, take the child and his mother, and be going to the land of Israel, for they have died -- those seeking the life of the child.'  21 And he, having risen, took the child and his mother, and came to the land of Israel,  22 and having heard that Archelaus doth reign over Judea instead of Herod his father, he was afraid to go thither, and having been divinely warned in a dream, he withdrew to the parts of Galilee,  23 and coming, he dwelt in a city named Nazareth, that it might be fulfilled that was spoken through the prophets, that 'A Nazarene he shall be called.'    Luk 2:40 :  and the child grew and was strengthened in spirit, being filled with wisdom, and the grace of God was upon him.

Matthew Mark Luke John
Mat 3:1-12 :  1 And in those days cometh John the Baptist, proclaiming in the wilderness of Judea,  2 and saying, 'Reform, for come nigh hath the reign of the heavens,'  3 for this is he who was spoken of by Isaiah the prophet, saying, 'A voice of one crying in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the Lord, straight make ye His paths.'  4 And this John had his clothing of camel's hair, and a girdle of skin round his loins, and his nourishment was locusts and honey of the field.  5 Then were going forth unto him Jerusalem, and all Judea, and all the region round about the Jordan,  6 and they were baptized in the Jordan by him, confessing their sins.  7 And having seen many of the Pharisees and Sadducees coming about his baptism, he said to them, 'Brood of vipers! who did shew you to flee from the coming wrath?  8 bear, therefore, fruits worthy of the reformation,  9 and do not think to say in yourselves, A father we have -- Abraham, for I say to you, that God is able out of these stones to raise children to Abraham,  10 and now also, the axe unto the root of the trees is laid, every tree therefore not bearing good fruit is hewn down, and to fire is cast.  11 'I indeed do baptize you with water to reformation, but he who after me is coming is mightier than I, of whom I am not worthy to bear the sandals, he shall baptize you with the Holy Spirit and with fire,  12 whose fan is in his hand, and he will thoroughly cleanse his floor, and will gather his wheat to the storehouse, but the chaff he will burn with fire unquenchable.'  Mar 1:2-8 :  2 As it hath been written in the prophets, 'Lo, I send My messenger before thy face, who shall prepare thy way before thee,' --  3 'A voice of one calling in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the Lord, straight make ye his paths,' --  4 John came baptizing in the wilderness, and proclaiming a baptism of reformation -- to remission of sins,  5 and there were going forth to him all the region of Judea, and they of Jerusalem, and they were all baptized by him in the river Jordan, confessing their sins.  6 And John was clothed with camel's hair, and a girdle of skin around his loins, and eating locusts and honey of the field,  7 and he proclaimed, saying, 'He doth come -- who is mightier than I -- after me, of whom I am not worthy -- having stooped down -- to loose the latchet of his sandals;  8 I indeed did baptize you with water, but he shall baptize you with the Holy Spirit.'  Luk 3:1-20 :  1 And in the fifteenth year of the government of Tiberius Caesar -- Pontius Pilate being governor of Judea, and Herod tetrarch of Galilee, and Philip his brother, tetrarch of Ituraea and of the region of Trachonitis, and Lysanias tetrarch of Abilene --  2 Annas and Caiaphas being chief priests -- there came a word of God unto John the son of Zacharias, in the wilderness,  3 and he came to all the region round the Jordan, proclaiming a baptism of reformation -- to remission of sins,  4 as it hath been written in the scroll of the words of Isaiah the prophet, saying, 'A voice of one crying in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the Lord, straight make ye His paths;  5 every valley shall be filled, and every mountain and hill shall be made low, and the crooked shall become straightness, and the rough become smooth ways;  6 and all flesh shall see the salvation of God.'  7 Then said he to the multitudes coming forth to be baptised by him, 'Brood of vipers! who did prompt you to flee from the coming wrath?  8 make, therefore, fruits worthy of the reformation, and begin not to say within yourselves, We have a father -- Abraham; for I say to you, that God is able out of these stones to raise children to Abraham;  9 and already also the axe unto the root of the trees is laid, every tree, therefore, not making good fruit is cut down, and to fire it is cast.'  10 And the multitudes were questioning him, saying, 'What, then, shall we do?'  11 and he answering saith to them, 'He having two coats -- let him impart to him having none, and he having victuals -- in like manner let him do.'  12 And there came also tax-gatherers to be baptised, and they said unto him, 'Teacher, what shall we do?'  13 and he said unto them, 'Exact no more than that directed you.'  14 And questioning him also were those warring, saying, 'And we, what shall we do?' and he said unto them, 'Do violence to no one, nor accuse falsely, and be content with your wages.'  15 And the people are looking forward, and all are reasoning in their hearts concerning John, whether or not he may be the Christ;  16 John answered, saying to all, 'I indeed with water do baptise you, but he cometh who is mightier than I, of whom I am not worthy to loose the latchet of his sandals -- he shall baptise you with the Holy Spirit and with fire;  17 whose winnowing shovel is in his hand, and he will thoroughly cleanse his floor, and will gather the wheat to his storehouse, and the chaff he will burn with fire unquenchable.'  18 And, therefore, indeed with many other things, exhorting, he was proclaiming good news to the people,  19 and Herod the tetrarch, being reproved by him concerning Herodias the wife of Philip his brother, and concerning all the evils that Herod did,  20 added also this to all, that he shut up John in the prison.  Joh 1:15-28 :  15 John doth testify concerning him, and hath cried, saying, 'This was he of whom I said, He who after me is coming, hath come before me, for he was before me;'  16 and out of his fulness did we all receive, and grace over-against grace;  17 for the law through Moses was given, the grace and the truth through Jesus Christ did come;  18 God no one hath ever seen; the only begotten Son, who is on the bosom of the Father -- he did declare.  19 And this is the testimony of John, when the Jews sent out of Jerusalem priests and Levites, that they might question him, 'Who art thou?'  20 and he confessed and did not deny, and confessed -- 'I am not the Christ.'  21 And they questioned him, 'What then? Elijah art thou?' and he saith, 'I am not.' -- 'The prophet art thou?' and he answered, 'No.'  22 They said then to him, 'Who art thou, that we may give an answer to those sending us? what dost thou say concerning thyself?'  23 He said, 'I am a voice of one crying in the wilderness: Make straight the way of the Lord, as said Isaiah the prophet.'  24 And those sent were of the Pharisees,  25 and they questioned him and said to him, 'Why, then, dost thou baptize, if thou art not the Christ, nor Elijah, nor the prophet?'  26 John answered them, saying, 'I baptize with water, but in midst of you he hath stood whom ye have not known, this one it is who is coming after me, who hath been before me,  27 of whom I am not worthy that I may loose the cord of his sandal.'  28 These things came to pass in Bethabara, beyond the Jordan, where John was baptizing,

Mat 3:13-17 :  13 Then cometh Jesus from Galilee upon the Jordan, unto John to be baptized by him,  14 but John was forbidding him, saying, 'I have need by thee to be baptized -- and thou dost come unto me!'  15 But Jesus answering said to him, 'Suffer now, for thus it is becoming to us to fulfill all righteousness,' then he doth suffer him.  16 And having been baptized, Jesus went up immediately from the water, and lo, opened to him were the heavens, and he saw the Spirit of God descending as a dove, and coming upon him,  17 and lo, a voice out of the heavens, saying, 'This is My Son -- the Beloved, in whom I did delight.'  Mar 1:9-11 :  9 And it came to pass in those days, Jesus came from Nazareth of Galilee, and was baptized by John at the Jordan;  10 and immediately coming up from the water, he saw the heavens dividing, and the Spirit as a dove coming down upon him;  11 and a voice came out of the heavens, 'Thou art My Son -- the Beloved, in whom I did delight.'  Luk 3:21-22 :  21 And it came to pass, in all the people being baptised, Jesus also being baptised, and praying, the heaven was opened,  22 and the Holy Spirit came down in a bodily appearance, as if a dove, upon him, and a voice came out of heaven, saying, 'Thou art My Son -- the Beloved, in thee I did delight.'  Joh 1:29-34 :  29 on the morrow John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith, 'Lo, the Lamb of God, who is taking away the sin of the world;  30 this is he concerning whom I said, After me doth come a man, who hath come before me, because he was before me:  31 and I knew him not, but, that he might be manifested to Israel, because of this I came with the water baptizing.  32 And John testified, saying -- 'I have seen the Spirit coming down, as a dove, out of heaven, and it remained on him;  33 and I did not know him, but he who sent me to baptize with water, He said to me, On whomsoever thou mayst see the Spirit coming down, and remaining on him, this is he who is baptizing with the Holy Spirit;  34 and I have seen, and have testified, that this is the Son of God.'

      Joh 1:15-28 :  15 John doth testify concerning him, and hath cried, saying, 'This was he of whom I said, He who after me is coming, hath come before me, for he was before me;'  16 and out of his fulness did we all receive, and grace over-against grace;  17 for the law through Moses was given, the grace and the truth through Jesus Christ did come;  18 God no one hath ever seen; the only begotten Son, who is on the bosom of the Father -- he did declare.  19 And this is the testimony of John, when the Jews sent out of Jerusalem priests and Levites, that they might question him, 'Who art thou?'  20 and he confessed and did not deny, and confessed -- 'I am not the Christ.'  21 And they questioned him, 'What then? Elijah art thou?' and he saith, 'I am not.' -- 'The prophet art thou?' and he answered, 'No.'  22 They said then to him, 'Who art thou, that we may give an answer to those sending us? what dost thou say concerning thyself?'  23 He said, 'I am a voice of one crying in the wilderness: Make straight the way of the Lord, as said Isaiah the prophet.'  24 And those sent were of the Pharisees,  25 and they questioned him and said to him, 'Why, then, dost thou baptize, if thou art not the Christ, nor Elijah, nor the prophet?'  26 John answered them, saying, 'I baptize with water, but in midst of you he hath stood whom ye have not known, this one it is who is coming after me, who hath been before me,  27 of whom I am not worthy that I may loose the cord of his sandal.'  28 These things came to pass in Bethabara, beyond the Jordan, where John was baptizing,

    Luk 4:14-32 :  14 And Jesus turned back in the power of the Spirit to Galilee, and a fame went forth through all the region round about concerning him,  15 and he was teaching in their synagogues, being glorified by all.  16 And he came to Nazareth, where he hath been brought up, and he went in, according to his custom, on the sabbath-day, to the synagogue, and stood up to read;  17 and there was given over to him a roll of Isaiah the prophet, and having unfolded the roll, he found the place where it hath been written:  18 'The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, Because He did anoint me; To proclaim good news to the poor, Sent me to heal the broken of heart, To proclaim to captives deliverance, And to blind receiving of sight, To send away the bruised with deliverance,  19 To proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord.'  20 And having folded the roll, having given it back to the officer, he sat down, and the eyes of all in the synagogue were gazing on him.  21 And he began to say unto them -- 'To-day hath this writing been fulfilled in your ears;'  22 and all were bearing testimony to him, and were wondering at the gracious words that are coming forth out of his mouth, and they said, 'Is not this the son of Joseph?'  23 And he said unto them, 'Certainly ye will say to me this simile, Physician, heal thyself; as great things as we heard done in Capernaum, do also here in thy country;'  24 and he said, 'Verily I say to you -- No prophet is accepted in his own country;  25 and of a truth I say to you, Many widows were in the days of Elijah, in Israel, when the heaven was shut for three years and six months, when great famine came on all the land,  26 and unto none of them was Elijah sent, but -- to Sarepta of Sidon, unto a woman, a widow;  27 and many lepers were in the time of Elisha the prophet, in Israel, and none of them was cleansed, but -- Naaman the Syrian.'  28 And all in the synagogue were filled with wrath, hearing these things,  29 and having risen, they put him forth without the city, and brought him unto the brow of the hill on which their city had been built -- to cast him down headlong,  30 and he, having gone through the midst of them, went away.  31 And he came down to Capernaum, a city of Galilee, and was teaching them on the sabbaths,  32 and they were astonished at his teaching, because his word was with authority.

      Joh 2 :  1 And the third day a marriage happened in Cana of Galilee, and the mother of Jesus was there,  2 and also Jesus was called, and his disciples, to the marriage;  3 and wine having failed, the mother of Jesus saith unto him, 'Wine they have not;'  4 Jesus saith to her, 'What -- to me and to thee, woman? not yet is mine hour come.'  5 His mother saith to the ministrants, 'Whatever he may say to you -- do.'  6 And there were there six water-jugs of stone, placed according to the purifying of the Jews, holding each two or three measures.  7 Jesus saith to them, 'Fill the water-jugs with water;' and they filled them -- unto the brim;  8 and he saith to them, 'Draw out, now, and bear to the director of the apartment;' and they bare.  9 And as the director of the apartment tasted the water become wine, and knew not whence it is, (but the ministrants knew, who have drawn the water,) the director of the feast doth call the bridegroom,  10 and saith to him, 'Every man, at first, the good wine doth set forth; and when they may have drunk freely, then the inferior; thou didst keep the good wine till now.'  11 This beginning of the signs did Jesus in Cana of Galilee, and manifested his glory, and his disciples believed in him;  12 after this he went down to Capernaum, he, and his mother, and his brethren, and his disciples; and there they remained not many days.  13 And the passover of the Jews was nigh, and Jesus went up to Jerusalem,  14 and he found in the temple those selling oxen, and sheep, and doves, and the money-changers sitting,  15 and having made a whip of small cords, he put all forth out of the temple, also the sheep, and the oxen; and of the money-changers he poured out the coins, and the tables he overthrew,  16 and to those selling the doves he said, 'Take these things hence; make not the house of my Father a house of merchandise.'  17 And his disciples remembered that it is written, 'The zeal of Thy house did eat me up;'  18 the Jews then answered and said to him, 'What sign dost thou shew to us -- that thou dost these things?'  19 Jesus answered and said to them, 'Destroy this sanctuary, and in three days I will raise it up.'  20 The Jews, therefore, said, 'Forty and six years was this sanctuary building, and wilt thou in three days raise it up?'  21 but he spake concerning the sanctuary of his body;  22 when, then, he was raised out of the dead, his disciples remembered that he said this to them, and they believed the Writing, and the word that Jesus said.  23 And as he was in Jerusalem, in the passover, in the feast, many believed in his name, beholding his signs that he was doing;  24 and Jesus himself was not trusting himself to them, because of his knowing all men,  25 and because he had no need that any should testify concerning man, for he himself was knowing what was in man.

      Joh 3 :  1 And there was a man of the Pharisees, Nicodemus his name, a ruler of the Jews,  2 this one came unto him by night, and said to him, 'Rabbi, we have known that from God thou hast come -- a teacher, for no one these signs is able to do that thou dost, if God may not be with him.'  3 Jesus answered and said to him, 'Verily, verily, I say to thee, If any one may not be born from above, he is not able to see the reign of God;'  4 Nicodemus saith unto him, 'How is a man able to be born, being old? is he able into the womb of his mother a second time to enter, and to be born?'  5 Jesus answered, 'Verily, verily, I say to thee, If any one may not be born of water, and the Spirit, he is not able to enter into the reign of God;  6 that which hath been born of the flesh is flesh, and that which hath been born of the Spirit is spirit.  7 'Thou mayest not wonder that I said to thee, It behoveth you to be born from above;  8 the Spirit where he willeth doth blow, and his voice thou dost hear, but thou hast not known whence he cometh, and whither he goeth; thus is every one who hath been born of the Spirit.'  9 Nicodemus answered and said to him, 'How are these things able to happen?'  10 Jesus answered and said to him, 'Thou art the teacher of Israel -- and these things thou dost not know!  11 'Verily, verily, I say to thee -- What we have known we speak, and what we have seen we testify, and our testimony ye do not receive;  12 if the earthly things I said to you, and ye do not believe, how, if I shall say to you the heavenly things, will ye believe?  13 and no one hath gone up to the heaven, except he who out of the heaven came down -- the Son of Man who is in the heaven.  14 'And as Moses did lift up the serpent in the wilderness, so it behoveth the Son of Man to be lifted up,  15 that every one who is believing in him may not perish, but may have life age-during,  16 for God did so love the world, that His Son -- the only begotten -- He gave, that every one who is believing in him may not perish, but may have life age-during.  17 For God did not send His Son to the world that he may judge the world, but that the world may be saved through him;  18 he who is believing in him is not judged, but he who is not believing hath been judged already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.  19 'And this is the judgment, that the light hath come to the world, and men did love the darkness rather than the light, for their works were evil;  20 for every one who is doing wicked things hateth the light, and doth not come unto the light, that his works may not be detected;  21 but he who is doing the truth doth come to the light, that his works may be manifested, that in God they are having been wrought.'  22 After these things came Jesus and his disciples to the land of Judea, and there he did tarry with them, and was baptizing;  23 and John was also baptizing in Aenon, nigh to Salem, because there were many waters there, and they were coming and were being baptized --  24 for John was not yet cast into the prison --  25 there arose then a question from the disciples of John with some Jews about purifying,  26 and they came unto John, and said to him, 'Rabbi, he who was with thee beyond the Jordan, to whom thou didst testify, lo, this one is baptizing, and all are coming unto him.'  27 John answered and said, 'A man is not able to receive anything, if it may not have been given him from the heaven;  28 ye yourselves do testify to me that I said, I am not the Christ, but, that I am having been sent before him;  29 he who is having the bride is bridegroom, and the friend of the bridegroom, who is standing and hearing him, with joy doth rejoice because of the voice of the bridegroom; this, then, my joy hath been fulfilled.  30 'Him it behoveth to increase, and me to become less;  31 he who from above is coming is above all; he who is from the earth, from the earth he is, and from the earth he speaketh; he who from the heaven is coming is above all.  32 'And what he hath seen and heard this he doth testify, and his testimony none receiveth;  33 he who is receiving his testimony did seal that God is true;  34 for he whom God sent, the sayings of God he speaketh; for not by measure doth God give the Spirit;  35 the Father doth love the Son, and all things hath given into his hand;  36 he who is believing in the Son, hath life age-during; and he who is not believing the Son, shall not see life, but the wrath of God doth remain upon him.'

      Joh 4 :  1 When therefore the Lord knew that the Pharisees heard that Jesus more disciples doth make and baptize than John,  2 (though indeed Jesus himself was not baptizing, but his disciples,)  3 he left Judea and went away again to Galilee,  4 and it was behoving him to go through Samaria.  5 He cometh, therefore, to a city of Samaria, called Sychar, near to the place that Jacob gave to Joseph his son;  6 and there was there a well of Jacob. Jesus therefore having been weary from the journeying, was sitting thus on the well; it was as it were the sixth hour;  7 there cometh a woman out of Samaria to draw water. Jesus saith to her, 'Give me to drink;'  8 for his disciples were gone away to the city, that they may buy victuals;  9 the Samaritan woman therefore saith to him, 'How dost thou, being a Jew, ask drink from me, being a Samaritan woman?' for Jews have no dealing with Samaritans.  10 Jesus answered and said to her, 'If thou hadst known the gift of God, and who it is who is saying to thee, Give me to drink, thou wouldest have asked him, and he would have given thee living water.'  11 The woman saith to him, 'Sir, thou hast not even a vessel to draw with, and the well is deep; whence, then, hast thou the living water?  12 Art thou greater than our father Jacob, who did give us the well, and himself out of it did drink, and his sons, and his cattle?'  13 Jesus answered and said to her, 'Every one who is drinking of this water shall thirst again;  14 but whoever may drink of the water that I will give him, may not thirst -- to the age; and the water that I will give him shall become in him a well of water, springing up to life age-during.'  15 The woman saith unto him, 'Sir, give me this water, that I may not thirst, nor come hither to draw.'  16 Jesus saith to her, 'Go, call thy husband, and come hither;'  17 the woman answered and said, 'I have not a husband.' Jesus saith to her, 'Well didst thou say -- A husband I have not;  18 for five husbands thou hast had, and, now, he whom thou hast is not thy husband; this hast thou said truly.'  19 The woman saith to him, 'Sir, I perceive that thou art a prophet;  20 our fathers in this mountain did worship, and ye -- ye say that in Jerusalem is the place where it behoveth to worship.'  21 Jesus saith to her, 'Woman, believe me, that there doth come an hour, when neither in this mountain, nor in Jerusalem, shall ye worship the Father;  22 ye worship what ye have not known; we worship what we have known, because the salvation is of the Jews;  23 but, there cometh an hour, and it now is, when the true worshippers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for the Father also doth seek such to worship him;  24 God is a Spirit, and those worshipping Him, in spirit and truth it doth behove to worship.'  25 The woman saith to him, 'I have known that Messiah doth come, who is called Christ, when that one may come, he will tell us all things;'  26 Jesus saith to her, 'I am he, who am speaking to thee.'  27 And upon this came his disciples, and were wondering that with a woman he was speaking, no one, however, said, 'What seekest thou?' or 'Why speakest thou with her?'  28 The woman then left her water-jug, and went away to the city, and saith to the men,  29 'Come, see a man, who told me all things -- as many as I did; is this the Christ?'  30 They went forth therefore out of the city, and were coming unto him.  31 And in the meanwhile his disciples were asking him, saying, 'Rabbi, eat;'  32 and he said to them, 'I have food to eat that ye have not known.'  33 The disciples then said one to another, 'Did any one bring him anything to eat?'  34 Jesus saith to them, 'My food is, that I may do the will of Him who sent me, and may finish His work;  35 do not say that it is yet four months, and the harvest cometh; lo, I say to you, Lift up your eyes, and see the fields, that they are white unto harvest already.  36 'And he who is reaping doth receive a reward, and doth gather fruit to life age-during, that both he who is sowing and he who is reaping may rejoice together;  37 for in this the saying is the true one, that one is the sower and another the reaper.  38 I sent you to reap that on which ye have not laboured; others laboured, and ye into their labour have entered.  39 And from that city many believed in him, of the Samaritans, because of the word of the woman testifying, -- 'He told me all things -- as many as I did.'  40 When, then, the Samaritans came unto him, they were asking him to remain with them, and he remained there two days;  41 and many more did believe because of his word,  42 and said to the woman -- 'No more because of thy speaking do we believe; for we ourselves have heard and known that this is truly the Saviour of the world -- the Christ.'  43 And after the two days he went forth thence, and went away to Galilee,  44 for Jesus himself testified that a prophet in his own country shall not have honour;  45 when then, he came to Galilee, the Galileans received him, having seen all things that he did in Jerusalem in the feast -- for they also went to the feast.  46 Jesus came, therefore, again to Cana of Galilee, where he made the water wine, and there was a certain courtier, whose son was ailing in Capernaum,  47 he, having heard that Jesus is come out of Judea to Galilee, went away unto him, and was asking him that he may come down and may heal his son, for he was about to die.  48 Jesus then said unto him, 'If signs and wonders ye may not see, ye will not believe.'  49 The courtier saith unto him, 'Sir, come down before my child die;'  50 Jesus saith to him, 'Be going on; thy son doth live.' And the man believed the word that Jesus said to him, and was going on,  51 and he now going down, his servants met him, and told, saying -- 'Thy child doth live;'  52 he inquired then of them the hour in which he became better, and they said to him -- 'Yesterday at the seventh hour the fever left him;'  53 then the father knew that it was in that hour in which Jesus said to him -- 'Thy son doth live,' and he himself believed, and his whole house;  54 this again a second sign did Jesus, having come out of Judea to Galilee.

for nothing is it good henceforth, except to be cast without, and to be trodden down by men.  14 'Ye are the light of the world, a city set upon a mount is not able to be hid;  15 nor do they light a lamp, and put it under the measure, but on the lamp-stand, and it shineth to all those in the house;  16 so let your light shine before men, that they may see your good works, and may glorify your Father who is in the heavens.  17 'Do not suppose that I came to throw down the law or the prophets -- I did not come to throw down, but to fulfill;  18 for, verily I say to you, till that the heaven and the earth may pass away, one iota or one tittle may not pass away from the law, till that all may come to pass.  19 'Whoever therefore may loose one of these commands -- the least -- and may teach men so, least he shall be called in the reign of the heavens, but whoever may do and may teach them, he shall be called great in the reign of the heavens.  20 'For I say to you, that if your righteousness may not abound above that of the scribes and Pharisees, ye may not enter to the reign of the heavens.  21 'Ye heard that it was said to the ancients: Thou shalt not kill, and whoever may kill shall be in danger of the judgment;  22 but I -- I say to you, that every one who is angry at his brother without cause, shall be in danger of the judgment, and whoever may say to his brother, Empty fellow! shall be in danger of the sanhedrim, and whoever may say, Rebel! shall be in danger of the gehenna of the fire.  23 'If, therefore, thou mayest bring thy gift to the altar, and there mayest remember that thy brother hath anything against thee,  24 leave there thy gift before the altar, and go -- first be reconciled to thy brother, and then having come bring thy gift.  25 'Be agreeing with thy opponent quickly, while thou art in the way with him, that the opponent may not deliver thee to the judge, and the judge may deliver thee to the officer, and to prison thou mayest be cast,  26 verily I say to thee, thou mayest not come forth thence till that thou mayest pay the last farthing.  27 'Ye heard that it was said to the ancients: Thou shalt not commit adultery;  28 but I -- I say to you, that every one who is looking on a woman to desire her, did already commit adultery with her in his heart.  29 'But, if thy right eye doth cause thee to stumble, pluck it out and cast from thee, for it is good to thee that one of thy members may perish, and not thy whole body be cast to gehenna.  30 'And, if thy right hand doth cause thee to stumble, cut it off, and cast from thee, for it is good to thee that one of thy members may perish, and not thy whole body be cast to gehenna.  31 'And it was said, That whoever may put away his wife, let him give to her a writing of divorce;  32 but I -- I say to you, that whoever may put away his wife, save for the matter of whoredom, doth make her to commit adultery; and whoever may marry her who hath been put away doth commit adultery.  33 'Again, ye heard that it was said to the ancients: Thou shalt not swear falsely, but thou shalt pay to the Lord thine oaths;  34 but I -- I say to you, not to swear at all; neither by the heaven, because it is the throne of God,  35 nor by the earth, because it is His footstool, nor by Jerusalem, because it is a city of a great king,  36 nor by thy head mayest thou swear, because thou art not able one hair to make white or black;  37 but let your word be, Yes, Yes, No, No, and that which is more than these is of the evil.  38 'Ye heard that it was said: Eye for eye, and tooth for tooth;  39 but I -- I say to you, not to resist the evil, but whoever shall slap thee on thy right cheek, turn to him also the other;  40 and whoever is willing to take thee to law, and thy coat to take -- suffer to him also the cloak.  41 'And whoever shall impress thee one mile, go with him two,  42 to him who is asking of thee be giving, and him who is willing to borrow from thee thou mayest not turn away.  43 'Ye heard that it was said: Thou shalt love thy neighbor, and shalt hate thine enemy;  44 but I -- I say to you, Love your enemies, bless those cursing you, do good to those hating you, and pray for those accusing you falsely, and persecuting you,  45 that ye may be sons of your Father in the heavens, because His sun He doth cause to rise on evil and good, and He doth send rain on righteous and unrighteous.  46 'For, if ye may love those loving you, what reward have ye? do not also the tax-gatherers the same?  47 and if ye may salute your brethren only, what do ye abundant? do not also the tax-gatherers so?  48 ye shall therefore be perfect, as your Father who is in the heavens is perfect.

Mat 6 :  1 'Take heed your kindness not to do before men, to be seen by them, and if not -- reward ye have not from your Father who is in the heavens;  2 whenever, therefore, thou mayest do kindness, thou mayest not sound a trumpet before thee as the hypocrites do, in the synagogues, and in the streets, that they may have glory from men; verily I say to you -- they have their reward!  3 'But thou, doing kindness, let not thy left hand know what thy right hand doth,  4 that thy kindness may be in secret, and thy Father who is seeing in secret Himself shall reward thee manifestly.  5 'And when thou mayest pray, thou shalt not be as the hypocrites, because they love in the synagogues, and in the corners of the broad places -- standing -- to pray, that they may be seen of men; verily I say to you, that they have their reward.  6 'But thou, when thou mayest pray, go into thy chamber, and having shut thy door, pray to thy Father who is in secret, and thy Father who is seeing in secret, shall reward thee manifestly.  7 'And -- praying -- ye may not use vain repetitions like the nations, for they think that in their much speaking they shall be heard,  8 be ye not therefore like to them, for your Father doth know those things that ye have need of before your asking him;  9 thus therefore pray ye: 'Our Father who art in the heavens! hallowed be Thy name.  10 'Thy reign come: Thy will come to pass, as in heaven also on the earth.  11 'Our appointed bread give us to-day.  12 'And forgive us our debts, as also we forgive our debtors.  13 'And mayest Thou not lead us to temptation, but deliver us from the evil, because Thine is the reign, and the power, and the glory -- to the ages. Amen.  14 'For, if ye may forgive men their trespasses He also will forgive you -- your Father who is in the heavens;  15 but if ye may not forgive men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.  16 'And when ye may fast, be ye not as the hypocrites, of sour countenances, for they disfigure their faces, that they may appear to men fasting; verily I say to you, that they have their reward.  17 'But thou, fasting, anoint thy head, and wash thy face,  18 that thou mayest not appear to men fasting, but to thy Father who is in secret, and thy Father, who is seeing in secret, shall reward thee manifestly.  19 'Treasure not up to yourselves treasures on the earth, where moth and rust disfigure, and where thieves break through and steal,  20 but treasure up to yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth disfigure, and where thieves do not break through nor steal,  21 for where your treasure is, there will be also your heart.  22 'The lamp of the body is the eye, if, therefore, thine eye may be perfect, all thy body shall be enlightened,  23 but if thine eye may be evil, all thy body shall be dark; if, therefore, the light that is in thee is darkness -- the darkness, how great!  24 'None is able to serve two lords, for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will hold to the one, and despise the other; ye are not able to serve God and Mammon.  25 'Because of this I say to you, be not anxious for your life, what ye may eat, and what ye may drink, nor for your body, what ye may put on. Is not the life more than the nourishment, and the body than the clothing?  26 look to the fowls of the heaven, for they do not sow, nor reap, nor gather into storehouses, and your heavenly Father doth nourish them; are not ye much better than they?  27 'And who of you, being anxious, is able to add to his age one cubit?  28 and about clothing why are ye anxious? consider well the lilies of the field; how do they grow? they do not labour, nor do they spin;  29 and I say to you, that not even Solomon in all his glory was arrayed as one of these.  30 'And if the herb of the field, that to-day is, and to-morrow is cast to the furnace, God doth so clothe -- not much more you, O ye of little faith?  31 therefore ye may not be anxious, saying, What may we eat? or, What may we drink? or, What may we put round?  32 for all these do the nations seek for, for your heavenly Father doth know that ye have need of all these;  33 but seek ye first the reign of God and His righteousness, and all these shall be added to you.  34 Be not therefore anxious for the morrow, for the morrow shall be anxious for its own things; sufficient for the day is the evil of it.

Mat 7 :  1 'Judge not, that ye may not be judged,  2 for in what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged, and in what measure ye measure, it shall be measured to you.  3 'And why dost thou behold the mote that is in thy brother's eye, and the beam that is in thine own eye dost not consider?  4 or, how wilt thou say to thy brother, Suffer I may cast out the mote from thine eye, and lo, the beam is in thine own eye?  5 Hypocrite, cast out first the beam out of thine own eye, and then thou shalt see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother's eye.  6 'Ye may not give that which is holy to the dogs, nor cast your pearls before the swine, that they may not trample them among their feet, and having turned -- may rend you.  7 'Ask, and it shall be given to you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened to you;  8 for every one who is asking doth receive, and he who is seeking doth find, and to him who is knocking it shall be opened.  9 'Or what man is of you, of whom, if his son may ask a loaf -- a stone will he present to him?  10 and if a fish he may ask -- a serpent will he present to him?  11 if, therefore, ye being evil, have known good gifts to give to your children, how much more shall your Father who is in the heavens give good things to those asking him?  12 'All things, therefore, whatever ye may will that men may be doing to you, so also do to them, for this is the law and the prophets.  13 'Go ye in through the strait gate, because wide is the gate, and broad the way that is leading to the destruction, and many are those going in through it;  14 how strait is the gate, and compressed the way that is leading to the life, and few are those finding it!  15 'But, take heed of the false prophets, who come unto you in sheep's clothing, and inwardly are ravening wolves.  16 From their fruits ye shall know them; do men gather from thorns grapes? or from thistles figs?  17 so every good tree doth yield good fruits, but the bad tree doth yield evil fruits.  18 A good tree is not able to yield evil fruits, nor a bad tree to yield good fruits.  19 Every tree not yielding good fruit is cut down and is cast to fire:  20 therefore from their fruits ye shall know them.  21 'Not every one who is saying to me Lord, lord, shall come into the reign of the heavens; but he who is doing the will of my Father who is in the heavens.  22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, lord, have we not in thy name prophesied? and in thy name cast out demons? and in thy name done many mighty things?  23 and then I will acknowledge to them, that -- I never knew you, depart from me ye who are working lawlessness.  24 'Therefore, every one who doth hear of me these words, and doth do them, I will liken him to a wise man who built his house upon the rock;  25 and the rain did descend, and the streams came, and the winds blew, and they beat on that house, and it fell not, for it had been founded on the rock.  26 'And every one who is hearing of me these words, and is not doing them, shall be likened to a foolish man who built his house upon the sand;  27 and the rain did descend, and the streams came, and the winds blew, and they beat on that house, and it fell, and its fall was great.'  28 And it came to pass, when Jesus ended these words, the multitudes were astonished at his teaching,  29 for he was teaching them as having authority, and not as the scribes.

  Mar 1:21-28 :  21 ... Capernaum, and immediately, on the sabbaths, having gone into the synagogue, he was teaching,  22 and they were astonished at his teaching, for he was teaching them as having authority, and not as the scribes.  23 And there was in their synagogue a man with an unclean spirit, and he cried out,  24 saying, 'Away! what -- to us and to thee, Jesus the Nazarene? thou didst come to destroy us; I have known thee who thou art -- the Holy One of God.'  25 And Jesus rebuked him, saying, 'Be silenced, and come forth out of him,'  26 and the unclean spirit having torn him, and having cried with a great voice, came forth out of him,  27 and they were all amazed, so as to reason among themselves, saying, 'What is this? what new teaching is this? that with authority also the unclean spirits he commandeth, and they obey him!'  28 And the fame of him went forth immediately to all the region, round about, of Galilee.  Luk 4:33-37 :  33 And in the synagogue was a man, having a spirit of an unclean demon, and he cried out with a great voice,  34 saying, 'Away, what -- to us and to thee, Jesus, O Nazarene? thou didst come to destroy us; I have known thee who thou art -- the Holy One of God.'  35 And Jesus did rebuke him, saying, 'Be silenced, and come forth out of him;' and the demon having cast him into the midst, came forth from him, having hurt him nought;  36 and amazement came upon all, and they were speaking together, with one another, saying, 'What is this word, that with authority and power he doth command the unclean spirits, and they come forth?'  37 and there was going forth a fame concerning him to every place of the region round about.

Mat 8:14-17 :  14 And Jesus having come into the house of Peter, saw his mother-in-law laid, and fevered,  15 and he touched her hand, and the fever left her, and she arose, and was ministering to them.  16 And evening having come, they brought to him many demoniacs, and he did cast out the spirits with a word, and did heal all who were ill,  17 that it might be fulfilled that was spoken through Isaiah the prophet, saying, 'Himself took our infirmities, and the sicknesses he did bear.'  Mar 1:29-34 :  29 And immediately, having come forth out of the synagogue, they went to the house of Simon and Andrew, with James and John,  30 and the mother-in-law of Simon was lying fevered, and immediately they tell him about her,  31 and having come near, he raised her up, having laid hold of her hand, and the fever left her immediately, and she was ministering to them.  32 And evening having come, when the sun did set, they brought unto him all who were ill, and who were demoniacs,  33 and the whole city was gathered together near the door,  34 and he healed many who were ill of manifold diseases, and many demons he cast forth, and was not suffering the demons to speak, because they knew him.  Luk 4:38-41 :  38 And having risen out of the synagogue, he entered into the house of Simon, and the mother-in-law of Simon was pressed with a great fever, and they did ask him about her,  39 and having stood over her, he rebuked the fever, and it left her, and presently, having risen, she was ministering to them.  40 And at the setting of the sun, all, as many as had any ailing with manifold sicknesses, brought them unto him, and he on each one of them his hands having put, did heal them.  41 And demons also were coming forth from many, crying out and saying -- 'Thou art the Christ, the Son of God;' and rebuking, he did not suffer them to speak, because they knew him to be the Christ.

Mat 8:18-34 :  18 And Jesus having seen great multitudes about him, did command to depart to the other side;  19 and a certain scribe having come, said to him, 'Teacher, I will follow thee wherever thou mayest go;'  20 and Jesus saith to him, 'The foxes have holes, and the birds of the heaven places of rest, but the Son of Man hath not where he may lay the head.'  21 And another of his disciples said to him, 'Sir, permit me first to depart and to bury my father;'  22 and Jesus said to him, 'Follow me, and suffer the dead to bury their own dead.'  23 And when he entered into the boat his disciples did follow him,  24 and lo, a great tempest arose in the sea, so that the boat was being covered by the waves, but he was sleeping,  25 and his disciples having come to him, awoke him, saying, 'Sir, save us; we are perishing.'  26 And he saith to them, 'Why are ye fearful, O ye of little faith?' Then having risen, he rebuked the winds and the sea, and there was a great calm;  27 and the men wondered, saying, 'What kind -- is this, that even the wind and the sea do obey him?'  28 And he having come to the other side, to the region of the Gergesenes, there met him two demoniacs, coming forth out of the tombs, very fierce, so that no one was able to pass over by that way,  29 and lo, they cried out, saying, 'What -- to us and to thee, Jesus, Son of God? didst thou come hither, before the time, to afflict us?'  30 And there was far off from them a herd of many swine feeding,  31 and the demons were calling on him, saying, 'If thou dost cast us forth, permit us to go away to the herd of the swine;'  32 and he saith to them, 'Go.' And having come forth, they went to the herd of the swine, and lo, the whole herd of the swine rushed down the steep, to the sea, and died in the waters,  33 and those feeding did flee, and, having gone to the city, they declared all, and the matter of the demoniacs.  34 And lo, all the city came forth to meet Jesus, and having seen him, they called on him that he might depart from their borders.

Mat 9:2-8 :  2 and lo, they were bringing to him a paralytic, laid upon a couch, and Jesus having seen their faith, said to the paralytic, 'Be of good courage, child, thy sins have been forgiven thee.'  3 And lo, certain of the scribes said within themselves, 'This one doth speak evil.'  4 And Jesus, having known their thoughts, said, 'Why think ye evil in your hearts?  5 for which is easier? to say, The sins have been forgiven to thee; or to say, Rise, and walk?  6 'But, that ye may know that the Son of Man hath power upon the earth to forgive sins -- (then saith he to the paralytic) -- having risen, take up thy couch, and go to thy house.'  7 And he, having risen, went to his house,  8 and the multitudes having seen, wondered, and glorified God, who did give such power to men.  Mar 2:1-12 :  1 And again he entered into Capernaum, after some days, and it was heard that he is in the house,  2 and immediately many were gathered together, so that there was no more room, not even at the door, and he was speaking to them the word.  3 And they come unto him, bringing a paralytic, borne by four,  4 and not being able to come near to him because of the multitude, they uncovered the roof where he was, and, having broken it up, they let down the couch on which the paralytic was lying,  5 and Jesus having seen their faith, saith to the paralytic, 'Child, thy sins have been forgiven thee.'  6 And there were certain of the scribes there sitting, and reasoning in their hearts,  7 'Why doth this one thus speak evil words? who is able to forgive sins except one -- God?'  8 And immediately Jesus, having known in his spirit that they thus reason in themselves, said to them, 'Why these things reason ye in your hearts?  9 which is easier, to say to the paralytic, The sins have been forgiven to thee? or to say, Rise, and take up thy couch, and walk?  10 'And, that ye may know that the Son of Man hath authority on the earth to forgive sins -- (he saith to the paralytic) --  11 I say to thee, Rise, and take up thy couch, and go away to thy house;'  12 and he rose immediately, and having taken up the couch, he went forth before all, so that all were astonished, and do glorify God, saying -- 'Never thus did we see.'  Luk 5:17-26 :  17 And it came to pass, on one of the days, that he was teaching, and there were sitting by Pharisees and teachers of the Law, who were come out of every village of Galilee, and Judea, and Jerusalem, and the power of the Lord was -- to heal them.  18 And lo, men bearing upon a couch a man, who hath been struck with palsy, and they were seeking to bring him in, and to place before him,  19 and not having found by what way they may bring him in because of the multitude, having gone up on the house-top, through the tiles they let him down, with the little couch, into the midst before Jesus,  20 and he having seen their faith, said to him, 'Man, thy sins have been forgiven thee.'  21 And the scribes and the Pharisees began to reason, saying, 'Who is this that doth speak evil words? who is able to forgive sins, except God only?'  22 And Jesus having known their reasonings, answering, said unto them, 'What reason ye in your hearts?  23 which is easier -- to say, Thy sins have been forgiven thee? or to say, Arise, and walk?  24 'And that ye may know that the Son of Man hath authority upon the earth to forgive sins -- (he said to the one struck with palsy) -- I say to thee, Arise, and having taken up thy little couch, be going on to thy house.'  25 And presently having risen before them, having taken up that on which he was lying, he went away to his house, glorifying God,  26 and astonishment took all, and they were glorifying God, and were filled with fear, saying -- 'We saw strange things to-day.'

Mat 9:9-17 :  9 And Jesus passing by thence, saw a man sitting at the tax-office, named Matthew, and saith to him, 'Be following me,' and he, having risen, did follow him.  10 And it came to pass, he reclining (at meat) in the house, that lo, many tax-gatherers and sinners having come, were lying (at meat) with Jesus and his disciples,  11 and the Pharisees having seen, said to his disciples, 'Wherefore with the tax-gatherers and sinners doth your teacher eat?'  12 And Jesus having heard, said to them, 'They who are whole have no need of a physician, but they who are ill;  13 but having gone, learn ye what is, Kindness I will, and not sacrifice, for I did not come to call righteous men, but sinners, to reformation.'  14 Then come to him do the disciples of John, saying, 'Wherefore do we and the Pharisees fast much, and thy disciples fast not?'  15 And Jesus said to them, 'Can the sons of the bride-chamber mourn, so long as the bridegroom is with them? but days shall come when the bridegroom may be taken from them, and then they shall fast.  16 'And no one doth put a patch of undressed cloth on an old garment, for its filling up doth take from the garment, and a worse rent is made.  17 'Nor do they put new wine into old skins, and if not -- the skins burst, and the wine doth run out, and the skins are destroyed, but they put new wine into new skins, and both are preserved together.'  Mar 2:13-22 :  13 And he went forth again by the sea, and all the multitude was coming unto him, and he was teaching them,  14 and passing by, he saw Levi of Alpheus sitting at the tax-office, and saith to him, 'Be following me,' and he, having risen, did follow him.  15 And it came to pass, in his reclining (at meat) in his house, that many tax-gatherers and sinners were reclining (at meat) with Jesus and his disciples, for there were many, and they followed him.  16 And the scribes and the Pharisees, having seen him eating with the tax-gatherers and sinners, said to his disciples, 'Why -- that with the tax-gatherers and sinners he doth eat and drink?'  17 And Jesus, having heard, saith to them, 'They who are strong have no need of a physician, but they who are ill; I came not to call righteous men, but sinners to reformation.'  18 And the disciples of John and those of the Pharisees were fasting, and they come and say to him, 'Wherefore do the disciples of John and those of the Pharisees fast, and thy disciples do not fast?'  19 And Jesus said to them, 'Are the sons of the bride-chamber able, while the bridegroom is with them, to fast? so long time as they have the bridegroom with them they are not able to fast;  20 but days shall come when the bridegroom may be taken from them, and then they shall fast -- in those days.  21 'And no one a patch of undressed cloth doth sew on an old garment, and if not -- the new filling it up doth take from the old and the rent doth become worse;  22 and no one doth put new wine into old skins, and if not -- the new wine doth burst the skins, and the wine is poured out, and the skins will be destroyed; but new wine into new skins is to be put.'  Luk 5:27-39 :  27 And after these things he went forth, and beheld a tax-gatherer, by name Levi, sitting at the tax-office, and said to him, 'Be following me;'  28 and he, having left all, having arisen, did follow him.  29 And Levi made a great entertainment to him in his house, and there was a great multitude of tax-gatherers and others who were with them reclining (at meat),  30 and the scribes and the Pharisees among them were murmuring at his disciples, saying, 'Wherefore with tax-gatherers and sinners do ye eat and drink?'  31 And Jesus answering said unto them, 'They who are well have no need of a physician, but they that are ill:  32 I came not to call righteous men, but sinners, to reformation.'  33 And they said unto him, 'Wherefore do the disciples of John fast often, and make supplications -- in like manner also those of the Pharisees -- but thine do eat and drink?'  34 And he said unto them, 'Are ye able to make the sons of the bride-chamber -- in the bridegroom being with them -- to fast?  35 but days will come, and, when the bridegroom may be taken away from them, then they shall fast in those days.'  36 And he spake also a simile unto them -- 'No one a patch of new clothing doth put on old clothing, and if otherwise, the new also doth make a rent, and with the old the patch doth not agree, that is from the new.  37 'And no one doth put new wine into old skins, and if otherwise, the new wine will burst the skins, and itself will be poured out, and the skins will be destroyed;  38 but new wine into new skins is to be put, and both are preserved together;  39 and no one having drunk old wine, doth immediately wish new, for he saith, The old is better.'

Mat 9:18-38 :  18 While he is speaking these things to them, lo, a ruler having come, was bowing to him, saying that 'My daughter just now died, but, having come, lay thy hand upon her, and she shall live.'  19 And Jesus having risen, did follow him, also his disciples,  20 and lo, a woman having an issue of blood twelve years, having come to him behind, did touch the fringe of his garments,  21 for she said within herself, 'If only I may touch his garment, I shall be saved.'  22 And Jesus having turned about, and having seen her, said, 'Be of good courage, daughter, thy faith hath saved thee,' and the woman was saved from that hour.  23 And Jesus having come to the house of the ruler, and having seen the minstrels and the multitude making tumult,  24 he saith to them, 'Withdraw, for the damsel did not die, but doth sleep,' and they were deriding him;  25 but, when the multitude was put forth, having gone in, he took hold of her hand, and the damsel arose,  26 and the fame of this went forth to all the land.  27 And Jesus passing on thence, two blind men followed him, calling and saying, 'Deal kindly with us, Son of David.'  28 And he having come to the house, the blind men came to him, and Jesus saith to them, 'Believe ye that I am able to do this?' They say to him, 'Yes, sir.'  29 Then touched he their eyes, saying, 'According to your faith let it be to you,'  30 and their eyes were opened, and Jesus strictly charged them, saying, 'See, let no one know;'  31 but they, having gone forth, did spread his fame in all that land.  32 And as they are coming forth, lo, they brought to him a man dumb, a demoniac,  33 and the demon having been cast out, the dumb spake, and the multitude did wonder, saying that 'It was never so seen in Israel:'  34 but the Pharisees said, 'By the ruler of the demons he doth cast out the demons.'  35 And Jesus was going up and down all the cities and the villages, teaching in their synagogues, and proclaiming the good news of the reign, and healing every sickness and every malady among the people.  36 And having seen the multitudes, he was moved with compassion for them, that they were faint and cast aside, as sheep not having a shepherd,  37 then saith he to his disciples, 'The harvest indeed is abundant, but the workmen few;  38 beseech ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he may put forth workmen to His harvest.'

Mat 10 :  1 And having called to him his twelve disciples, he gave to them power over unclean spirits, so as to be casting them out, and to be healing every sickness, and every malady.  2 And of the twelve apostles the names are these: first, Simon, who is called Peter, and Andrew his brother; James of Zebedee, and John his brother;  3 Philip, and Bartholomew; Thomas, and Matthew the tax-gatherer; James of Alpheus, and Lebbeus who was surnamed Thaddeus;  4 Simon the Cananite, and Judas Iscariot, who did also deliver him up.  5 These twelve did Jesus send forth, having given command to them, saying, 'To the way of the nations go not away, and into a city of the Samaritans go not in,  6 and be going rather unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel.  7 'And, going on, proclaim saying that, the reign of the heavens hath come nigh;  8 infirm ones be healing, lepers be cleansing, dead be raising, demons be casting out -- freely ye did receive, freely give.  9 'Provide not gold, nor silver, nor brass in your girdles,  10 nor scrip for the way, nor two coats, nor sandals, nor staff -- for the workman is worthy of his nourishment.  11 'And into whatever city or village ye may enter, inquire ye who in it is worthy, and there abide, till ye may go forth.  12 And coming to the house salute it,  13 and if indeed the house be worthy, let your peace come upon it; and if it be not worthy, let your peace turn back to you.  14 'And whoever may not receive you nor hear your words, coming forth from that house or city, shake off the dust of your feet,  15 verily I say to you, It shall be more tolerable for the land of Sodom and Gomorrah in the day of judgment than for that city.  16 'Lo, I do send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves, be ye therefore wise as the serpents, and simple as the doves.  17 And, take ye heed of men, for they will give you up to sanhedrims, and in their synagogues they will scourge you,  18 and before governors and kings ye shall be brought for my sake, for a testimony to them and to the nations.  19 'And whenever they may deliver you up, be not anxious how or what ye may speak, for it shall be given you in that hour what ye shall speak;  20 for ye are not the speakers, but the Spirit of your Father that is speaking in you.  21 'And brother shall deliver up brother to death, and father child, and children shall rise up against parents, and shall put them to death,  22 and ye shall be hated by all because of my name, but he who hath endured to the end, he shall be saved.  23 'And whenever they may persecute you in this city, flee to the other, for verily I say to you, ye may not have completed the cities of Israel till the Son of Man may come.  24 'A disciple is not above the teacher, nor a servant above his lord;  25 sufficient to the disciple that he may be as his teacher, and the servant as his lord; if the master of the house they did call Beelzeboul, how much more those of his household?  26 'Ye may not, therefore, fear them, for there is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed, and hid, that shall not be known;  27 that which I tell you in the darkness, speak in the light, and that which you hear at the ear, proclaim on the house-tops.  28 'And be not afraid of those killing the body, and are not able to kill the soul, but fear rather Him who is able both soul and body to destroy in gehenna.  29 'Are not two sparrows sold for an assar? and one of them shall not fall on the ground without your Father;  30 and of you -- even the hairs of the head are all numbered;  31 be not therefore afraid, than many sparrows ye are better.  32 'Every one, therefore, who shall confess in me before men, I also will confess in him before my Father who is in the heavens;  33 and whoever shall deny me before men, I also will deny him before my Father who is in the heavens.  34 'Ye may not suppose that I came to put peace on the earth; I did not come to put peace, but a sword;  35 for I came to set a man at variance against his father, and a daughter against her mother, and a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law,  36 and the enemies of a man are those of his household.  37 'He who is loving father or mother above me, is not worthy of me, and he who is loving son or daughter above me, is not worthy of me,  38 and whoever doth not receive his cross and follow after me, is not worthy of me.  39 'He who found his life shall lose it, and he who lost his life for my sake shall find it.  40 'He who is receiving you doth receive me, and he who is receiving me doth receive Him who sent me,  41 he who is receiving a prophet in the name of a prophet, shall receive a prophet's reward, and he who is receiving a righteous man in the name of a righteous man, shall receive a righteous man's reward,  42 and whoever may give to drink to one of these little ones a cup of cold water only in the name of a disciple, verily I say to you, he may not lose his reward.'

Mat 11:1-30 :  1 And it came to pass, when Jesus ended directing his twelve disciples, he departed thence to teach and to preach in their cities.  2 And John having heard in the prison the works of the Christ, having sent two of his disciples,  3 said to him, 'Art thou He who is coming, or for another do we look?'  4 And Jesus answering said to them, 'Having gone, declare to John the things that ye hear and see,  5 blind receive sight, and lame walk, lepers are cleansed, and deaf hear, dead are raised, and poor have good news proclaimed,  6 and happy is he who may not be stumbled in me.'  7 And as they are going, Jesus began to say to the multitudes concerning John, 'What went ye out to the wilderness to view? -- a reed shaken by the wind?  8 'But what went ye out to see? -- a man clothed in soft garments? lo, those wearing the soft things are in the kings' houses.  9 'But what went ye out to see? -- a prophet? yes, I say to you, and more than a prophet,  10 for this is he of whom it hath been written, Lo, I do send My messenger before thy face, who shall prepare thy way before thee.  11 Verily I say to you, there hath not risen, among those born of women, a greater than John the Baptist, but he who is least in the reign of the heavens is greater than he.  12 'And, from the days of John the Baptist till now, the reign of the heavens doth suffer violence, and violent men do take it by force,  13 for all the prophets and the law till John did prophesy,  14 and if ye are willing to receive it, he is Elijah who was about to come;  15 he who is having ears to hear -- let him hear.  16 'And to what shall I liken this generation? it is like little children in market-places, sitting and calling to their comrades,  17 and saying, We piped unto you, and ye did not dance, we lamented to you, and ye did not smite the breast.  18 'For John came neither eating nor drinking, and they say, He hath a demon;  19 the Son of Man came eating and drinking, and they say, Lo, a man, a glutton, and a wine-drinker, a friend of tax-gatherers and sinners, and wisdom was justified of her children.'  20 Then began he to reproach the cities in which were done most of his mighty works, because they did not reform.  21 'Wo to thee, Chorazin! wo to thee, Bethsaida! because, if in Tyre and Sidon had been done the mighty works that were done in you, long ago in sackcloth and ashes they had reformed;  22 but I say to you, to Tyre and Sidon it shall be more tolerable in a day of judgment than for you.  23 'And thou, Capernaum, which unto the heaven wast exalted, unto hades shalt be brought down, because if in Sodom had been done the mighty works that were done in thee, it had remained unto this day;  24 but I say to you, to the land of Sodom it shall be more tolerable in a day of judgment than to thee.'  25 At that time Jesus answering said, 'I do confess to Thee, Father, Lord of the heavens and of the earth, that thou didst hide these things from wise and understanding ones, and didst reveal them to babes.  26 Yes, Father, because so it was good pleasure before Thee.  27 'All things were delivered to me by my Father, and none doth know the Son, except the Father, nor doth any know the Father, except the Son, and he to whom the Son may wish to reveal Him.  28 'Come unto me, all ye labouring and burdened ones, and I will give you rest,  29 take up my yoke upon you, and learn from me, because I am meek and humble in heart, and ye shall find rest to your souls,  30 for my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.'

      Joh 5:1-47 :  1 After these things there was a feast of the Jews, and Jesus went up to Jerusalem,  2 and there is in Jerusalem by the sheep-gate a pool that is called in Hebrew Bethesda, having five porches,  3 in these were lying a great multitude of the ailing, blind, lame, withered, waiting for the moving of the water,  4 for a messenger at a set time was going down in the pool, and was troubling the water, the first then having gone in after the troubling of the water, became whole of whatever sickness he was held.  5 and there was a certain man there being in ailment thirty and eight years,  6 him Jesus having seen lying, and having known that he is already a long time, he saith to him, 'Dost thou wish to become whole?'  7 The ailing man answered him, 'Sir, I have no man, that, when the water may be troubled, he may put me into the pool, and while I am coming, another doth go down before me.'  8 Jesus saith to him, 'Rise, take up thy couch, and be walking;'  9 and immediately the man became whole, and he took up his couch, and was walking, and it was a sabbath on that day,  10 the Jews then said to him that hath been healed, 'It is a sabbath; it is not lawful to thee to take up the couch.'  11 He answered them, 'He who made me whole -- that one said to me, Take up thy couch, and be walking;'  12 they questioned him, then, 'Who is the man who is saying to thee, Take up thy couch and be walking?'  13 But he that was healed had not known who he is, for Jesus did move away, a multitude being in the place.  14 After these things, Jesus findeth him in the temple, and said to him, 'Lo, thou hast become whole; sin no more, lest something worse may happen to thee.'  15 The man went away, and told the Jews that it is Jesus who made him whole,  16 and because of this were the Jews persecuting Jesus, and seeking to kill him, because these things he was doing on a sabbath.  17 And Jesus answered them, 'My Father till now doth work, and I work;'  18 because of this, then, were the Jews seeking the more to kill him, because not only was he breaking the sabbath, but he also called God his own Father, making himself equal to God.  19 Jesus therefore responded and said to them, 'Verily, verily, I say to you, The Son is not able to do anything of himself, if he may not see the Father doing anything; for whatever things He may do, these also the Son in like manner doth;  20 for the Father doth love the Son, and doth shew to him all things that He himself doth; and greater works than these He will shew him, that ye may wonder.  21 'For, as the Father doth raise the dead, and doth make alive, so also the Son doth make alive whom he willeth;  22 for neither doth the Father judge any one, but all the judgment He hath given to the Son,  23 that all may honour the Son according as they honour the Father; he who is not honouring the Son, doth not honour the Father who sent him.  24 'Verily, verily, I say to you -- He who is hearing my word, and is believing Him who sent me, hath life age-during, and to judgment he doth not come, but hath passed out of the death to the life.  25 'Verily, verily, I say to you -- There cometh an hour, and it now is, when the dead shall hear the voice of the Son of God, and those having heard shall live;  26 for, as the Father hath life in himself, so He gave also to the Son to have life in himself,  27 and authority He gave him also to do judgment, because he is Son of Man.  28 'Wonder not at this, because there doth come an hour in which all those in the tombs shall hear his voice,  29 and they shall come forth; those who did the good things to a rising again of life, and those who practised the evil things to a rising again of judgment.  30 'I am not able of myself to do anything; according as I hear I judge, and my judgment is righteous, because I seek not my own will, but the will of the Father who sent me.  31 'If I testify concerning myself, my testimony is not true;  32 another there is who is testifying concerning me, and I have known that the testimony that he doth testify concerning me is true;  33 ye have sent unto John, and he hath testified to the truth.  34 'But I do not receive testimony from man, but these things I say that ye may be saved;  35 he was the burning and shining lamp, and ye did will to be glad, for an hour, in his light.  36 'But I have the testimony greater than John's, for the works that the Father gave me, that I might finish them, the works themselves that I do, they testify concerning me, that the Father hath sent me.  37 'And the Father who sent me Himself hath testified concerning me; ye have neither heard His voice at any time, nor His appearance have ye seen;  38 and His word ye have not remaining in you, because whom He sent, him ye do not believe.  39 'Ye search the Writings, because ye think in them to have life age-during, and these are they that are testifying concerning me;  40 and ye do not will to come unto me, that ye may have life;  41 glory from man I do not receive,  42 but I have known you, that the love of God ye have not in yourselves.  43 'I have come in the name of my Father, and ye do not receive me; if another may come in his own name, him ye will receive;  44 how are ye able -- ye -- to believe, glory from one another receiving, and the glory that is from God alone ye seek not?  45 'Do not think that I will accuse you unto the Father; there is who is accusing you, Moses -- in whom ye have hoped;  46 for if ye were believing Moses, ye would have been believing me, for he wrote concerning me;  47 but if his writings ye believe not, how shall ye believe my sayings?'

Mat 12:1-8 :  1 At that time did Jesus go on the sabbaths through the corn, and his disciples were hungry, and they began to pluck ears, and to eat,  2 and the Pharisees having seen, said to him, 'Lo, thy disciples do that which it is not lawful to do on a sabbath.'  3 And he said to them, 'Did ye not read what David did, when he was hungry, himself and those with him --  4 how he went into the house of God, and the loaves of the presentation did eat, which it is not lawful to him to eat, nor to those with him, except to the priests alone?  5 'Or did ye not read in the Law, that on the sabbaths the priests in the temple do profane the sabbath, and are blameless?  6 and I say to you, that a greater than the temple is here;  7 and if ye had known what is: Kindness I will, and not sacrifice -- ye had not condemned the blameless,  8 for the son of man is lord even of the sabbath.'  Mar 2:23-28 :  23 And it came to pass -- he is going along on the sabbaths through the corn-fields -- and his disciples began to make a way, plucking the ears,  24 and the Pharisees said to him, 'Lo, why do they on the sabbaths that which is not lawful?'  25 And he said to them, 'Did ye never read what David did, when he had need and was hungry, he and those with him?  26 how he went into the house of God, (at 'Abiathar the chief priest,') and the loaves of the presentation did eat, which it is not lawful to eat, except to the priests, and he gave also to those who were with him?'  27 And he said to them, 'The sabbath for man was made, not man for the sabbath,  28 so that the son of man is lord also of the sabbath.'  Luk 6:1-5 :  1 And it came to pass, on the second-first sabbath, as he is going through the corn fields, that his disciples were plucking the ears, and were eating, rubbing with the hands,  2 and certain of the Pharisees said to them, 'Why do ye that which is not lawful to do on the sabbaths?'  3 And Jesus answering said unto them, 'Did ye not read even this that David did, when he hungered, himself and those who are with him,  4 how he went into the house of God, and the loaves of the presentation did take, and did eat, and gave also to those with him, which it is not lawful to eat, except only to the priests?'  5 and he said to them, -- 'The Son of Man is lord also of the sabbath.'

Mat 12:9-14 :  9 And having departed thence, he went to their synagogue,  10 and lo, there was a man having the hand withered, and they questioned him, saying, 'Is it lawful to heal on the sabbaths?' that they might accuse him.  11 And he said to them, 'What man shall be of you, who shall have one sheep, and if this may fall on the sabbaths into a ditch, will not lay hold on it and raise it?  12 How much better, therefore, is a man than a sheep? -- so that it is lawful on the sabbaths to do good.'  13 Then saith he to the man, 'Stretch forth thy hand,' and he stretched it forth, and it was restored whole as the other.  14 And the Pharisees having gone forth, held a consultation against him, how they might destroy him,  Mar 3:1-6 :  1 And he entered again into the synagogue, and there was there a man having the hand withered,  2 and they were watching him, whether on the sabbaths he will heal him, that they might accuse him.  3 And he saith to the man having the hand withered, 'Rise up in the midst.'  4 And he saith to them, 'Is it lawful on the sabbaths to do good, or to do evil? life to save, or to kill?' but they were silent.  5 And having looked round upon them with anger, being grieved for the hardness of their heart, he saith to the man, 'Stretch forth thy hand;' and he stretched forth, and his hand was restored whole as the other;  6 and the Pharisees having gone forth, immediately, with the Herodians, were taking counsel against him how they might destroy him.  Luk 6:6-11 :  6 And it came to pass also, on another sabbath, that he goeth into the synagogue, and teacheth, and there was there a man, and his right hand was withered,  7 and the scribes and the Pharisees were watching him, if on the sabbath he will heal, that they might find an accusation against him.  8 And he himself had known their reasonings, and said to the man having the withered hand, 'Rise, and stand in the midst;' and he having risen, stood.  9 Then said Jesus unto them, 'I will question you something: Is it lawful on the sabbaths to do good, or to do evil? life to save or to kill?'  10 And having looked round on them all, he said to the man, 'Stretch forth thy hand;' and he did so, and his hand was restored whole as the other;  11 and they were filled with madness, and were speaking with one another what they might do to Jesus.

Mat 12:15-21 :  15 and Jesus having known, withdrew thence, and there followed him great multitudes, and he healed them all,  16 and did charge them that they might not make him manifest,  17 that it might be fulfilled that was spoken through Isaiah the prophet, saying,  18 'Lo, My servant, whom I did choose, My beloved, in whom My soul did delight, I will put My Spirit upon him, and judgment to the nations he shall declare,  19 he shall not strive nor cry, nor shall any hear in the broad places his voice,  20 a bruised reed he shall not break, and smoking flax he shall not quench, till he may put forth judgment to victory,  21 and in his name shall nations hope.'  Mar 3:7-12 :  7 And Jesus withdrew with his disciples unto the sea, and a great multitude from Galilee followed him, and from Judea,  8 and from Jerusalem, and from Idumea and beyond the Jordan; and they about Tyre and Sidon -- a great multitude -- having heard how great things he was doing, came unto him.  9 And he said to his disciples that a little boat may wait on him, because of the multitude, that they may not press upon him,  10 for he did heal many, so that they threw themselves on him, in order to touch him -- as many as had plagues;  11 and the unclean spirits, when they were seeing him, were falling down before him, and were crying, saying -- 'Thou art the Son of God;'  12 and many times he was charging them that they might not make him manifest.

  Mar 3:13-21 :  13 And he goeth up to the mountain, and doth call near whom he willed, and they went away to him;  14 and he appointed twelve, that they may be with him, and that he may send them forth to preach,  15 and to have power to heal the sicknesses, and to cast out the demons.  16 And he put on Simon the name Peter;  17 and James of Zebedee, and John the brother of James, and he put on them names -- Boanerges, that is, 'Sons of thunder;'  18 and Andrew, and Philip, and Bartholomew, and Matthew, and Thomas, and James of Alpheus, and Thaddeus, and Simon the Cananite,  19 and Judas Iscariot, who did also deliver him up; and they come into a house.  20 And come together again doth a multitude, so that they are not able even to eat bread;  21 and his friends having heard, went forth to lay hold on him, for they said that he was beside himself,  Luk 6:12-49 :  12 And it came to pass in those days, he went forth to the mountain to pray, and was passing the night in the prayer of God,  13 and when it became day, he called near his disciples, and having chosen from them twelve, whom also he named apostles,  14 (Simon, whom also he named Peter, and Andrew his brother, James and John, Philip and Bartholomew,  15 Matthew and Thomas, James of Alphaeus, and Simon called Zelotes,  16 Judas of James, and Judas Iscariot, who also became betrayer;)  17 and having come down with them, he stood upon a level spot, and a crowd of his disciples, and a great multitude of the people from all Judea, and Jerusalem, and the maritime Tyre and Sidon, who came to hear him, and to be healed of their sicknesses,  18 and those harassed by unclean spirits, and they were healed,  19 and all the multitude were seeking to touch him, because power from him was going forth, and he was healing all.  20 And he, having lifted up his eyes to his disciples, said: 'Happy the poor -- because yours is the reign of God.  21 'Happy those hungering now -- because ye shall be filled. 'Happy those weeping now -- because ye shall laugh.  22 'Happy are ye when men shall hate you, and when they shall separate you, and shall reproach, and shall cast forth your name as evil, for the Son of Man's sake --  23 rejoice in that day, and leap, for lo, your reward is great in the heaven, for according to these things were their fathers doing to the prophets.  24 'But wo to you -- the rich, because ye have got your comfort.  25 'Wo to you who have been filled -- because ye shall hunger. 'Wo to you who are laughing now -- because ye shall mourn and weep.  26 'Wo to you when all men shall speak well of you -- for according to these things were their fathers doing to false prophets.  27 'But I say to you who are hearing, Love your enemies, do good to those hating you,  28 bless those cursing you, and pray for those accusing you falsely;  29 and to him smiting thee upon the cheek, give also the other, and from him taking away from thee the mantle, also the coat thou mayest not keep back.  30 'And to every one who is asking of thee, be giving; and from him who is taking away thy goods, be not asking again;  31 and as ye wish that men may do to you, do ye also to them in like manner;  32 and -- if ye love those loving you, what grace have ye? for also the sinful love those loving them;  33 and if ye do good to those doing good to you, what grace have ye? for also the sinful do the same;  34 and if ye lend to those of whom ye hope to receive back, what grace have ye? for also the sinful lend to sinners -- that they may receive again as much.  35 'But love your enemies, and do good, and lend, hoping for nothing again, and your reward will be great, and ye shall be sons of the Highest, because He is kind unto the ungracious and evil;  36 be ye therefore merciful, as also your Father is merciful.  37 'And judge not, and ye may not be judged; condemn not, and ye may not be condemned; release, and ye shall be released.  38 'Give, and it shall be given to you; good measure, pressed, and shaken, and running over, they shall give into your bosom; for with that measure with which ye measure, it shall be measured to you again.'  39 And he spake a simile to them, 'Is blind able to lead blind? shall they not both fall into a pit?  40 A disciple is not above his teacher, but every one perfected shall be as his teacher.  41 'And why dost thou behold the mote that is in thy brother's eye, and the beam that is in thine own eye dost not consider?  42 or how art thou able to say to thy brother, Brother, suffer, I may take out the mote that is in thine eye -- thyself the beam in thine own eye not beholding? Hypocrite, take first the beam out of thine own eye, and then thou shalt see clearly to take out the mote that is in thy brother's eye.  43 'For there is not a good tree making bad fruit, nor a bad tree making good fruit;  44 for each tree from its own fruit is known, for not from thorns do they gather figs, nor from a bramble do they crop a grape.  45 'The good man out of the good treasure of his heart doth bring forth that which is good; and the evil man out of the evil treasure of his heart doth bring forth that which is evil; for out of the abounding of the heart doth his mouth speak.  46 'And why do ye call me, Lord, Lord, and do not what I say?  47 Every one who is coming unto me, and is hearing my words, and is doing them, I will shew you to whom he is like;  48 he is like to a man building a house, who did dig, and deepen, and laid a foundation upon the rock, and a flood having come, the stream broke forth on that house, and was not able to shake it, for it had been founded upon the rock.  49 'And he who heard and did not, is like to a man having builded a house upon the earth, without a foundation, against which the stream brake forth, and immediately it fell, and the ruin of that house became great.'

    Luk 7 :  1 And when he completed all his sayings in the ears of the people, he went into Capernaum;  2 and a certain centurion's servant being ill, was about to die, who was much valued by him,  3 and having heard about Jesus, he sent unto him elders of the Jews, beseeching him, that having come he might thoroughly save his servant.  4 And they, having come near unto Jesus, were calling upon him earnestly, saying -- 'He is worthy to whom thou shalt do this,  5 for he doth love our nation, and the synagogue he did build to us.'  6 And Jesus was going on with them, and now when he is not far distant from the house the centurion sent unto him friends, saying to him, 'Sir, be not troubled, for I am not worthy that under my roof thou mayest enter;  7 wherefore not even myself thought I worthy to come unto thee, but say in a word, and my lad shall be healed;  8 for I also am a man placed under authority, having under myself soldiers, and I say to this one, Go, and he goeth; and to another, Be coming, and he cometh; and to my servant, Do this, and he doth it.'  9 And having heard these things Jesus wondered at him, and having turned to the multitude following him, he said, 'I say to you, not even in Israel so much faith did I find;'  10 and those sent, having turned back to the house, found the ailing servant in health.  11 And it came to pass, on the morrow, he was going on to a city called Nain, and there were going with him many of his disciples, and a great multitude,  12 and as he came nigh to the gate of the city, then, lo, one dead was being carried forth, an only son of his mother, and she a widow, and a great multitude of the city was with her.  13 And the Lord having seen her, was moved with compassion towards her, and said to her, 'Be not weeping;'  14 and having come near, he touched the bier, and those bearing it stood still, and he said, 'Young man, to thee I say, Arise;'  15 and the dead sat up, and began to speak, and he gave him to his mother;  16 and fear took hold of all, and they were glorifying God, saying -- 'A great prophet hath risen among us,' and -- 'God did look upon His people.'  17 And the account of this went forth in all Judea about him, and in all the region around.  18 And the disciples of John told him about all these things,  19 and John having called near a certain two of his disciples, sent unto Jesus, saying, 'Art thou he who is coming, or for another do we look?'  20 And having come near to him, the men said, 'John the Baptist sent us unto thee, saying, Art thou he who is coming, or for another do we look?'  21 And in that hour he cured many from sicknesses, and plagues, and evil spirits, and to many blind he granted sight.  22 And Jesus answering said to them, 'Having gone on, report to John what ye saw and heard, that blind men do see again, lame do walk, lepers are cleansed, deaf do hear, dead are raised, poor have good news proclaimed;  23 and happy is he whoever may not be stumbled in me.'  24 And the messengers of John having gone away, he began to say unto the multitudes concerning John: 'What have ye gone forth to the wilderness to look on? a reed by the wind shaken?  25 but what have ye gone forth to see? a man in soft garments clothed? lo, they in splendid apparellings, and living in luxury, are in the houses of kings!  26 'But what have ye gone forth to see? a prophet? Yes, I say to you, and much more than a prophet:  27 this is he concerning whom it hath been written, Lo, I send my messenger before thy face, who shall prepare thy way before thee;  28 for I say to you, a greater prophet, among those born of women, than John the Baptist there is not; but the least in the reign of God is greater than he.'  29 And all the people having heard, and the tax-gatherers, declared God righteous, having been baptized with the baptism of John,  30 but the Pharisees, and the lawyers, the counsel of God did put away for themselves, not having been baptized by him.  31 And the Lord said, 'To what, then, shall I liken the men of this generation? and to what are they like?  32 they are like to children, to those sitting in a market-place, and calling one to another, and saying, We piped to you, and ye did not dance, we mourned to you, and ye did not weep!  33 'For John the Baptist came neither eating bread nor drinking wine, and ye say, He hath a demon;  34 the Son of Man came eating and drinking, and ye say, Lo, a man, a glutton, and a wine drinker, a friend of tax-gatherers and sinners;  35 and the wisdom was justified from all her children.'  36 And a certain one of the Pharisees was asking him that he might eat with him, and having gone into the house of the Pharisee he reclined (at meat),  37 and lo, a woman in the city, who was a sinner, having known that he reclineth (at meat) in the house of the Pharisee, having provided an alabaster box of ointment,  38 and having stood behind, beside his feet, weeping, she began to wet his feet with the tears, and with the hairs of her head she was wiping, and was kissing his feet, and was anointing with the ointment.  39 And the Pharisee who did call him, having seen, spake within himself, saying, 'This one, if he were a prophet, would have known who and of what kind is the woman who doth touch him, that she is a sinner.'  40 And Jesus answering said unto him, 'Simon, I have something to say to thee;' and he saith, 'Teacher, say on.'  41 'Two debtors were to a certain creditor; the one was owing five hundred denaries, and the other fifty;  42 and they not having wherewith to give back, he forgave both; which then of them, say thou, will love him more?'  43 And Simon answering said, 'I suppose that to whom he forgave the more;' and he said to him, 'Rightly thou didst judge.'  44 And having turned unto the woman, he said to Simon, 'Seest thou this woman? I entered into thy house; water for my feet thou didst not give, but this woman with tears did wet my feet, and with the hairs of her head did wipe;  45 a kiss to me thou didst not give, but this woman, from what time I came in, did not cease kissing my feet;  46 with oil my head thou didst not anoint, but this woman with ointment did anoint my feet;  47 therefore I say to thee, her many sins have been forgiven, because she did love much; but to whom little is forgiven, little he doth love.'  48 And he said to her, 'Thy sins have been forgiven;'  49 and those reclining with him (at meat) began to say within themselves, 'Who is this, who also doth forgive sins?'  50 and he said unto the woman, 'Thy faith have saved thee, be going on to peace.'

    Luk 8:1-18 :  1 And it came to pass thereafter, that he was going through every city and village, preaching and proclaiming good news of the reign of God, and the twelve are with him,  2 and certain women, who were healed of evil spirits and infirmities, Mary who is called Magdalene, from whom seven demons had gone forth,  3 and Joanna wife of Chuza, steward of Herod, and Susanna, and many others, who were ministering to him from their substance.  4 And a great multitude having gathered, and those who from city and city were coming unto him, he spake by a simile:  5 'The sower went forth to sow his seed, and in his sowing some indeed fell beside the way, and it was trodden down, and the fowls of the heaven did devour it.  6 'And other fell upon the rock, and having sprung up, it did wither, through not having moisture.  7 'And other fell amidst the thorns, and the thorns having sprung up with it, did choke it.  8 'And other fell upon the good ground, and having sprung up, it made fruit an hundred fold.' These things saying, he was calling, 'He having ears to hear -- let him hear.'  9 And his disciples were questioning him, saying, 'What may this simile be?'  10 And he said, 'To you it hath been given to know the secrets of the reign of God, and to the rest in similes; that seeing they may not see, and hearing they may not understand.  11 'And this is the simile: The seed is the word of God,  12 and those beside the way are those hearing, then cometh the Devil, and taketh up the word from their heart, lest having believed, they may be saved.  13 'And those upon the rock: They who, when they may hear, with joy do receive the word, and these have no root, who for a time believe, and in time of temptation fall away.  14 'And that which fell to the thorns: These are they who have heard, and going forth, through anxieties, and riches, and pleasures of life, are choked, and bear not to completion.  15 'And that in the good ground: These are they, who in an upright and good heart, having heard the word, do retain it, and bear fruit in continuance.  16 'And no one having lighted a lamp doth cover it with a vessel, or under a couch doth put it; but upon a lamp-stand he doth put it, that those coming in may see the light,  17 for nothing is secret, that shall not become manifest, nor hid, that shall not be known, and become manifest.  18 'See, therefore, how ye hear, for whoever may have, there shall be given to him, and whoever may not have, also what he seemeth to have, shall be taken from him.'

Mat 12:22-32 :  22 Then was brought to him a demoniac, blind and dumb, and he healed him, so that the blind and dumb both spake and saw.  23 And all the multitudes were amazed, and said, 'Is this the Son of David?'  24 but the Pharisees having heard, said, 'This one doth not cast out demons, except by Beelzeboul, ruler of the demons.'  25 And Jesus, knowing their thoughts, said to them, 'Every kingdom having been divided against itself is desolated, and no city or house having been divided against itself, doth stand,  26 and if the Adversary doth cast out the Adversary, against himself he was divided, how then doth his kingdom stand?  27 'And if I, by Beelzeboul, do cast out the demons, your sons -- by whom do they cast out? because of this they -- they shall be your judges.  28 'But if I, by the Spirit of God, do cast out the demons, then come already unto you did the reign of God.  29 'Or how is one able to go into the house of the strong man, and to plunder his goods, if first he may not bind the strong man? and then his house he will plunder.  30 'He who is not with me is against me, and he who is not gathering with me, doth scatter.  31 Because of this I say to you, all sin and evil speaking shall be forgiven to men, but the evil speaking of the Spirit shall not be forgiven to men.  32 And whoever may speak a word against the Son of Man it shall be forgiven to him, but whoever may speak against the Holy Spirit, it shall not be forgiven him, neither in this age, nor in that which is coming.  Mar 3:22-30 :  22 and the scribes who are from Jerusalem having come down, said -- 'He hath Beelzeboul,' and -- 'By the ruler of the demons he doth cast out the demons.'  23 And, having called them near, in similes he said to them, 'How is the Adversary able to cast out the Adversary?  24 and if a kingdom against itself be divided, that kingdom cannot be made to stand;  25 and if a house against itself be divided, that house cannot be made to stand;  26 and if the Adversary did rise against himself, and hath been divided, he cannot be made to stand, but hath an end.  27 'No one is able the vessels of the strong man -- having entered into his house -- to spoil, if first he may not bind the strong man, and then his house he will spoil.  28 'Verily I say to you, that all the sins shall be forgiven to the sons of men, and evil speakings with which they might speak evil,  29 but whoever may speak evil in regard to the Holy Spirit hath not forgiveness -- to the age, but is in danger of age-during judgment;'  30 because they said, 'He hath an unclean spirit.'

Mat 13:1-52 :  1 And in that day Jesus, having gone forth from the house, was sitting by the sea,  2 and gathered together unto him were many multitudes, so that he having gone into the boat did sit down, and all the multitude on the beach did stand,  3 and he spake to them many things in similes, saying: 'Lo, the sower went forth to sow,  4 and in his sowing, some indeed fell by the way, and the fowls did come and devour them,  5 and others fell upon the rocky places, where they had not much earth, and immediately they sprang forth, through not having depth of earth,  6 and the sun having risen they were scorched, and through not having root, they withered,  7 and others fell upon the thorns, and the thorns did come up and choke them,  8 and others fell upon the good ground, and were giving fruit, some indeed a hundredfold, and some sixty, and some thirty.  9 He who is having ears to hear -- let him hear.'  10 And the disciples having come near, said to him, 'Wherefore in similes dost thou speak to them?'  11 And he answering said to them that -- 'To you it hath been given to know the secrets of the reign of the heavens, and to these it hath not been given,  12 for whoever hath, it shall be given to him, and he shall have overabundance, and whoever hath not, even that which he hath shall be taken from him.  13 'Because of this, in similes do I speak to them, because seeing they do not see, and hearing they do not hear, nor understand,  14 and fulfilled on them is the prophecy of Isaiah, that saith, With hearing ye shall hear, and ye shall not understand, and seeing ye shall see, and ye shall not perceive,  15 for made gross was the heart of this people, and with the ears they heard heavily, and their eyes they did close, lest they might see with the eyes, and with the ears might hear, and with the heart understand, and turn back, and I might heal them.  16 'And happy are your eyes because they see, and your ears because they hear,  17 for verily I say to you, that many prophets and righteous men did desire to see that which ye look on, and they did not see, and to hear that which ye hear, and they did not hear.  18 'Ye, therefore, hear ye the simile of the sower:  19 Every one hearing the word of the reign, and not understanding -- the evil one doth come, and doth catch that which hath been sown in his heart; this is that sown by the way.  20 'And that sown on the rocky places, this is he who is hearing the word, and immediately with joy is receiving it,  21 and he hath not root in himself, but is temporary, and persecution or tribulation having happened because of the word, immediately he is stumbled.  22 'And that sown toward the thorns, this is he who is hearing the word, and the anxiety of this age, and the deceitfulness of the riches, do choke the word, and it becometh unfruitful.  23 'And that sown on the good ground: this is he who is hearing the word, and is understanding, who indeed doth bear fruit, and doth make, some indeed a hundredfold, and some sixty, and some thirty.'  24 Another simile he set before them, saying: 'The reign of the heavens was likened to a man sowing good seed in his field,  25 and, while men are sleeping, his enemy came and sowed darnel in the midst of the wheat, and went away,  26 and when the herb sprang up, and yielded fruit, then appeared also the darnel.  27 'And the servants of the householder, having come near, said to him, Sir, good seed didst thou not sow in thy field? whence then hath it the darnel?  28 And he saith to them, A man, an enemy, did this; and the servants said to him, Wilt thou, then, that having gone away we may gather it up?  29 'And he said, No, lest -- gathering up the darnel -- ye root up with it the wheat,  30 suffer both to grow together till the harvest, and in the time of the harvest I will say to the reapers, Gather up first the darnel, and bind it in bundles, to burn it, and the wheat gather up into my storehouse.'  31 Another simile he set before them, saying: 'The reign of the heavens is like to a grain of mustard, which a man having taken, did sow in his field,  32 which less, indeed, is than all the seeds, but when it may be grown, is greatest of the herbs, and becometh a tree, so that the birds of the heaven do come and rest in its branches.'  33 Another simile spake he to them: 'The reign of the heavens is like to leaven, which a woman having taken, hid in three measures of meal, till the whole was leavened.'  34 All these things spake Jesus in similes to the multitudes, and without a simile he was not speaking to them,  35 that it might be fulfilled that was spoken through the prophet, saying, 'I will open in similes my mouth, I will utter things having been hidden from the foundation of the world.'  36 Then having let away the multitudes, Jesus came to the house, and his disciples came near to him, saying, 'Explain to us the simile of the darnel of the field.'  37 And he answering said to them, 'He who is sowing the good seed is the Son of Man,  38 and the field is the world, and the good seed, these are the sons of the reign, and the darnel are the sons of the evil one,  39 and the enemy who sowed them is the devil, and the harvest is a full end of the age, and the reapers are messengers.  40 'As, then, the darnel is gathered up, and is burned with fire, so shall it be in the full end of this age,  41 the Son of Man shall send forth his messengers, and they shall gather up out of his kingdom all the stumbling-blocks, and those doing the unlawlessness,  42 and shall cast them to the furnace of the fire; there shall be the weeping and the gnashing of the teeth.  43 'Then shall the righteous shine forth as the sun in the reign of their Father. He who is having ears to hear -- let him hear.  44 'Again, the reign of the heavens is like to treasure hid in the field, which a man having found did hide, and from his joy goeth, and all, as much as he hath, he selleth, and buyeth that field.  45 'Again, the reign of the heavens is like to a man, a merchant, seeking goodly pearls,  46 who having found one pearl of great price, having gone away, hath sold all, as much as he had, and bought it.  47 'Again, the reign of the heavens is like to a net that was cast into the sea, and did gather together of every kind,  48 which, when it was filled, having drawn up again upon the beach, and having sat down, they gathered the good into vessels, and the bad they did cast out,  49 so shall it be in the full end of the age, the messengers shall come forth and separate the evil out of the midst of the righteous,  50 and shall cast them to the furnace of the fire, there shall be the weeping and the gnashing of the teeth.'  51 Jesus saith to them, 'Did ye understand all these?' They say to him, 'Yes, sir.'  52 And he said to them, 'Because of this every scribe having been discipled in regard to the reign of the heavens, is like to a man, a householder, who doth bring forth out of his treasure things new and old.'  Mar 4:1-34 :  1 And again he began to teach by the sea, and there was gathered unto him a great multitude, so that he, having gone into the boat, sat in the sea, and all the multitude was near the sea, on the land,  2 and he taught them many things in similes, and he said to them in his teaching:  3 'Hearken, lo, the sower went forth to sow;  4 and it came to pass, in the sowing, some fell by the way, and the fowls of the heaven did come and devour it;  5 and other fell upon the rocky ground, where it had not much earth, and immediately it sprang forth, because of not having depth of earth,  6 and the sun having risen, it was scorched, and because of not having root it did wither;  7 and other fell toward the thorns, and the thorns did come up, and choke it, and fruit it gave not;  8 and other fell to the good ground, and was giving fruit, coming up and increasing, and it bare, one thirty-fold, and one sixty, and one an hundred.'  9 And he said to them, 'He who is having ears to hear -- let him hear.'  10 And when he was alone, those about him, with the twelve, did ask him of the simile,  11 and he said to them, 'To you it hath been given to know the secret of the reign of God, but to those who are without, in similes are all the things done;  12 that seeing they may see and not perceive, and hearing they may hear and not understand, lest they may turn, and the sins may be forgiven them.'  13 And he saith to them, 'Have ye not known this simile? and how shall ye know all the similes?  14 He who is sowing doth sow the word;  15 and these are they by the way where the word is sown: and whenever they may hear, immediately cometh the Adversary, and he taketh away the word that hath been sown in their hearts.  16 'And these are they, in like manner, who on the rocky ground are sown: who, whenever they may hear the word, immediately with joy do receive it,  17 and have not root in themselves, but are temporary; afterward tribulation or persecution having come because of the word, immediately they are stumbled.  18 'And these are they who toward the thorns are sown: these are they who are hearing the word,  19 and the anxieties of this age, and the deceitfulness of the riches, and the desires concerning the other things, entering in, choke the word, and it becometh unfruitful.  20 'And these are they who on the good ground have been sown: who do hear the word, and receive, and do bear fruit, one thirty-fold, and one sixty, and one an hundred.'  21 And he said to them, 'Doth the lamp come that under the measure it may be put, or under the couch -- not that it may be put on the lamp-stand?  22 for there is not anything hid that may not be manifested, nor was anything kept hid but that it may come to light.  23 If any hath ears to hear -- let him hear.'  24 And he said to them, 'Take heed what ye hear; in what measure ye measure, it shall be measured to you; and to you who hear it shall be added;  25 for whoever may have, there shall be given to him, and whoever hath not, also that which he hath shall be taken from him.'  26 And he said, 'Thus is the reign of God: as if a man may cast the seed on the earth,  27 and may sleep, and may rise night and day, and the seed spring up and grow, he hath not known how;  28 for of itself doth the earth bear fruit, first a blade, afterwards an ear, afterwards full corn in the ear;  29 and whenever the fruit may yield itself, immediately he doth send forth the sickle, because the harvest hath come.'  30 And he said, 'To what may we liken the reign of God, or in what simile may we compare it?  31 As a grain of mustard, which, whenever it may be sown on the earth, is less than any of the seeds that are on the earth;  32 and whenever it may be sown, it cometh up, and doth become greater than any of the herbs, and doth make great branches, so that under its shade the fowls of the heaven are able to rest.'  33 And with many such similes he was speaking to them the word, as they were able to hear,  34 and without a simile he was not speaking to them, and by themselves, to his disciples he was expounding all.

  Mar 4:35-41 :  35 And he saith to them on that day, evening having come, 'We may pass over to the other side;'  36 and having let away the multitude, they take him up as he was in the boat, and other little boats also were with him.  37 And there cometh a great storm of wind, and the waves were beating on the boat, so that it is now being filled,  38 and he himself was upon the stern, upon the pillow sleeping, and they wake him up, and say to him, 'Teacher, art thou not caring that we perish?'  39 And having waked up, he rebuked the wind, and said to the sea, 'Peace, be stilled;' and the wind did lull, and there was a great calm:  40 and he said to them, 'Why are ye so fearful? how have ye not faith?'  41 and they feared a great fear, and said one to another, 'Who, then, is this, that even the wind and the sea do obey him?'  Luk 8:22-25 :  22 And it came to pass, on one of the days, that he himself went into a boat with his disciples, and he said unto them, 'We may go over to the other side of the lake;' and they set forth,  23 and as they are sailing he fell deeply asleep, and there came down a storm of wind to the lake, and they were filling, and were in peril.  24 And having come near, they awoke him, saying, 'Master, master, we perish;' and he, having arisen, rebuked the wind and the raging of the water, and they ceased, and there came a calm,  25 and he said to them, 'Where is your faith?' and they being afraid did wonder, saying unto one another, 'Who, then, is this, that even the winds he doth command, and the water, and they obey him?'

  Mar 5:1-20 :  1 And they came to the other side of the sea, to the region of the Gadarenes,  2 and he having come forth out of the boat, immediately there met him out of the tombs a man with an unclean spirit,  3 who had his dwelling in the tombs, and not even with chains was any one able to bind him,  4 because that he many times with fetters and chains had been bound, and pulled in pieces by him had been the chains, and the fetters broken in pieces, and none was able to tame him,  5 and always, night and day, in the mountains, and in the tombs he was, crying and cutting himself with stones.  6 And, having seen Jesus from afar, he ran and bowed before him,  7 and having called with a loud voice, he said, 'What -- to me and to thee, Jesus, Son of God the Most High? I adjure thee by God, mayest thou not afflict me!'  8 (for he said to him, 'Come forth, spirit unclean, out of the man,')  9 and he was questioning him, 'What is thy name?' and he answered, saying, 'Legion is my name, because we are many;'  10 and he was calling on him much, that he may not send them out of the region.  11 And there was there, near the mountains, a great herd of swine feeding,  12 and all the demons did call upon him, saying, 'Send us to the swine, that into them we may enter;'  13 and immediately Jesus gave them leave, and having come forth, the unclean spirits did enter into the swine, and the herd did rush down the steep place to the sea -- and they were about two thousand -- and they were choked in the sea.  14 And those feeding the swine did flee, and told in the city, and in the fields, and they came forth to see what it is that hath been done;  15 and they come unto Jesus, and see the demoniac, sitting, and clothed, and right-minded -- him having had the legion -- and they were afraid;  16 and those having seen it, declared to them how it had come to pass to the demoniac, and about the swine;  17 and they began to call upon him to go away from their borders.  18 And he having gone into the boat, the demoniac was calling on him that he may be with him,  19 and Jesus did not suffer him, but saith to him, 'Go away to thy house, unto thine own friends, and tell them how great things the Lord did to thee, and dealt kindly with thee;  20 and he went away, and began to proclaim in the Decapolis how great things Jesus did to him, and all were wondering.  Luk 8:26-39 :  26 And they sailed down to the region of the Gadarenes, that is over-against Galilee,  27 and he having gone forth upon the land, there met him a certain man, out of the city, who had demons for a long time, and with a garment was not clothed, and in a house was not abiding, but in the tombs,  28 and having seen Jesus, and having cried out, he fell before him, and with a loud voice, said, 'What -- to me and to thee, Jesus, Son of God Most High? I beseech thee, mayest thou not afflict me!'  29 For he commanded the unclean spirit to come forth from the man, for many times it had caught him, and he was being bound with chains and fetters -- guarded, and breaking asunder the bonds he was driven by the demons to the deserts.  30 And Jesus questioned him, saying, 'What is thy name?' and he said, 'Legion,' (because many demons were entered into him,)  31 and he was calling on him, that he may not command them to go away to the abyss,  32 and there was there a herd of many swine feeding in the mountain, and they were calling on him, that he might suffer them to enter into these, and he suffered them,  33 and the demons having gone forth from the man, did enter into the swine, and the herd rushed down the steep to the lake, and were choked.  34 And those feeding them, having seen what was come to pass, fled, and having gone, told it to the city, and to the fields;  35 and they came forth to see what was come to pass, and they came unto Jesus, and found the man sitting, out of whom the demons had gone forth, clothed, and right-minded, at the feet of Jesus, and they were afraid;  36 and those also having seen it, told them how the demoniac was saved.  37 And the whole multitude of the region of the Gadarenes round about asked him to go away from them, because with great fear they were pressed, and he having entered into the boat, did turn back.  38 And the man from whom the demons had gone forth was beseeching of him to be with him, and Jesus sent him away, saying,  39 'Turn back to thy house, and tell how great things God did to thee;' and he went away through all the city proclaiming how great things Jesus did to him.

  Mar 5:21-43 :  21 And Jesus having passed over in the boat again to the other side, there was gathered a great multitude to him, and he was near the sea,  22 and lo, there doth come one of the chiefs of the synagogue, by name Jairus, and having seen him, he doth fall at his feet,  23 and he was calling upon him much, saying -- 'My little daughter is at the last extremity -- that having come, thou mayest lay on her thy hands, so that she may be saved, and she shall live;'  24 and he went away with him. And there was following him a great multitude, and they were thronging him,  25 and a certain woman, having an issue of blood twelve years,  26 and many things having suffered under many physicians, and having spent all that she had, and having profited nothing, but rather having come to the worse,  27 having heard about Jesus, having come in the multitude behind, she touched his garment,  28 for she said -- 'If even his garments I may touch, I shall be saved;'  29 and immediately was the fountain of her blood dried up, and she knew in the body that she hath been healed of the plague.  30 And immediately Jesus having known in himself that out of him power had gone forth, having turned about in the multitude, said, 'Who did touch my garments?'  31 and his disciples said to him, 'Thou seest the multitude thronging thee, and thou sayest, 'Who did touch me!'  32 And he was looking round to see her who did this,  33 and the woman, having been afraid, and trembling, knowing what was done on her, came, and fell down before him, and told him all the truth,  34 and he said to her, 'Daughter, thy faith hath saved thee; go away in peace, and be whole from thy plague.'  35 As he is yet speaking, there come from the chief of the synagogue's house, certain, saying -- 'Thy daughter did die, why still dost thou harass the Teacher?'  36 And Jesus immediately, having heard the word that is spoken, saith to the chief of the synagogue, 'Be not afraid, only believe.'  37 And he did not suffer any one to follow with him, except Peter, and James, and John the brother of James;  38 and he cometh to the house of the chief of the synagogue, and seeth a tumult, much weeping and wailing;  39 and having gone in he saith to them, 'Why do ye make a tumult, and weep? the child did not die, but doth sleep;  40 and they were laughing at him. And he, having put all forth, doth take the father of the child, and the mother, and those with him, and goeth in where the child is lying,  41 and, having taken the hand of the child, he saith to her, 'Talitha cumi;' which is, being interpreted, 'Damsel (I say to thee), arise.'  42 And immediately the damsel arose, and was walking, for she was twelve years old; and they were amazed with a great amazement,  43 and he charged them much, that no one may know this thing, and he said that there be given to her to eat.  Luk 8:40-56 :  40 And it came to pass, in the turning back of Jesus, the multitude received him, for they were all looking for him,  41 and lo, there came a man, whose name is Jairus, and he was a chief of the synagogue, and having fallen at the feet of Jesus, was calling on him to come to his house;  42 because he had an only daughter about twelve years old, and she was dying. And in his going away, the multitudes were thronging him,  43 and a woman, having an issue of blood for twelve years, who, having spent on physicians all her living, was not able to be healed by any,  44 having come near behind, touched the fringe of his garment, and presently the issue of her blood stood.  45 And Jesus said, 'Who is it that touched me?' and all denying, Peter and those with him said, 'Master, the multitudes press thee, and throng thee, and thou dost say, Who is it that touched me!'  46 And Jesus said, 'Some one did touch me, for I knew power having gone forth from me.'  47 And the woman, having seen that she was not hid, trembling, came, and having fallen before him, for what cause she touched him declared to him before all the people, and how she was healed presently;  48 and he said to her, 'Take courage, daughter, thy faith hath saved thee, be going on to peace.'  49 While he is yet speaking, there doth come a certain one from the chief of the synagogue's house, saying to him -- 'Thy daughter hath died, harass not the Teacher;'  50 and Jesus having heard, answered him, saying, 'Be not afraid, only believe, and she shall be saved.'  51 And having come to the house, he suffered no one to go in, except Peter, and James, and John, and the father of the child, and the mother;  52 and they were all weeping, and beating themselves for her, and he said, 'Weep not, she did not die, but doth sleep;  53 and they were deriding him, knowing that she did die;  54 and he having put all forth without, and having taken hold of her hand, called, saying, 'Child, arise;'  55 and her spirit came back, and she arose presently, and he directed that there be given to her to eat;  56 and her parents were amazed, but he charged them to say to no one what was come to pass.

Mat 13:53-58 :  53 And it came to pass, when Jesus finished these similes, he removed thence,  54 and having come to his own country, he was teaching them in their synagogue, so that they were astonished, and were saying, 'Whence to this one this wisdom and the mighty works?  55 is not this the carpenter's son? is not his mother called Mary, and his brethren James, and Joses, and Simon, and Judas?  56 and his sisters -- are they not all with us? whence, then, to this one all these?'  57 and they were stumbled at him. And Jesus said to them, 'A prophet is not without honor except in his own country, and in his own house:'  58 and he did not there many mighty works, because of their unbelief.  Mar 6:1-6 :  1 And he went forth thence, and came to his own country, and his disciples do follow him,  2 and sabbath having come, he began in the synagogue to teach, and many hearing were astonished, saying, 'Whence hath this one these things? and what the wisdom that was given to him, that also such mighty works through his hands are done?  3 Is not this the carpenter, the son of Mary, and brother of James, and Joses, and Judas, and Simon? and are not his sisters here with us?' -- and they were being stumbled at him.  4 And Jesus said to them -- 'A prophet is not without honor, except in his own country, and among his kindred, and in his own house;'  5 and he was not able there any mighty work to do, except on a few infirm people having put hands he did heal them;  6 and he wondered because of their unbelief. And he was going round the villages, in a circle, teaching,

  Mar 6:7-13 :  7 and he doth call near the twelve, and he began to send them forth two by two, and he was giving them power over the unclean spirits,  8 and he commanded them that they may take nothing for the way, except a staff only -- no scrip, no bread, no brass in the girdle,  9 but having been shod with sandals, and ye may not put on two coats.  10 And he said to them, 'Whenever ye may enter into a house, there remain till ye may depart thence,  11 and as many as may not receive you, nor hear you, going out thence, shake off the dust that is under your feet for a testimony to them; verily I say to you, It shall be more tolerable for Sodom or Gomorrah in a day of judgment than for that city.'  12 And having gone forth they were preaching that men might reform,  13 and many demons they were casting out, and they were anointing with oil many infirm, and they were healing them.  Luk 9:1-6 :  1 And having called together his twelve disciples, he gave them power and authority over all the demons, and to cure sicknesses,  2 and he sent them to proclaim the reign of God, and to heal the ailing.  3 And he said unto them, 'Take nothing for the way, neither staff, nor scrip, nor bread, nor money; neither have two coats each;  4 and into whatever house ye may enter, there remain, and thence depart;  5 and as many as may not receive you, going forth from that city, even the dust from your feet shake off, for a testimony against them.'  6 And going forth they were going through the several villages, proclaiming good news, and healing everywhere.

Mat 14:1-14 :  1 At that time did Herod the tetrarch hear the fame of Jesus,  2 and said to his servants, 'This is John the Baptist, he did rise from the dead, and because of this the mighty energies are working in him.'  3 For Herod having laid hold on John, did bind him, and did put him in prison, because of Herodias his brother Philip's wife,  4 for John was saying to him, 'It is not lawful to thee to have her,'  5 and, willing to kill him, he feared the multitude, because as a prophet they were holding him.  6 But the birthday of Herod being kept, the daughter of Herodias danced in the midst, and did please Herod,  7 whereupon with an oath he professed to give her whatever she might ask.  8 And she having been instigated by her mother -- 'Give me (says she) here upon a plate the head of John the Baptist;  9 and the king was grieved, but because of the oaths and of those reclining with him, he commanded it to be given;  10 and having sent, he beheaded John in the prison,  11 and his head was brought upon a plate, and was given to the damsel, and she brought it nigh to her mother.  12 And his disciples having come, took up the body, and buried it, and having come, they told Jesus,  13 and Jesus having heard, withdrew thence in a boat to a desolate place by himself, and the multitudes having heard did follow him on land from the cities.  14 And Jesus having come forth, saw a great multitude, and was moved with compassion upon them, and did heal their infirm;  Mar 6:14-29 :  14 And the king Herod heard, (for his name became public,) and he said -- 'John the Baptist out of the dead was raised, and because of this the mighty powers are working in him.'  15 Others said -- 'It is Elijah,' and others said -- 'It is a prophet, or as one of the prophets.'  16 And Herod having heard, said -- 'He whom I did behead -- John -- this is he; he was raised out of the dead.'  17 For Herod himself, having sent forth, did lay hold on John, and bound him in the prison, because of Herodias the wife of Philip his brother, because he married her,  18 for John said to Herod -- 'It is not lawful to thee to have the wife of thy brother;'  19 and Herodias was having a quarrel with him, and was willing to kill him, and was not able,  20 for Herod was fearing John, knowing him a man righteous and holy, and was keeping watch over him, and having heard him, was doing many things, and hearing him gladly.  21 And a seasonable day having come, when Herod on his birthday was making a supper to his great men, and to the chiefs of thousands, and to the first men of Galilee,  22 and the daughter of that Herodias having come in, and having danced, and having pleased Herod and those reclining (at meat) with him, the king said to the damsel, 'Ask of me whatever thou wilt, and I will give to thee,'  23 and he sware to her -- 'Whatever thou mayest ask me, I will give to thee -- unto the half of my kingdom.'  24 And she, having gone forth, said to her mother, 'What shall I ask for myself?' and she said, 'The head of John the Baptist;'  25 and having come in immediately with haste unto the king, she asked, saying, 'I will that thou mayest give me presently, upon a plate, the head of John the Baptist.'  26 And the king -- made very sorrowful -- because of the oaths and of those reclining (at meat) with him, would not put her away,  27 and immediately the king having sent a guardsman, did command his head to be brought,  28 and he having gone, beheaded him in the prison, and brought his head upon a plate, and did give it to the damsel, and the damsel did give it to her mother;  29 and having heard, his disciples came and took up his corpse, and laid it in the tomb.  Luk 9:7-9 :  7 And Herod the tetrarch heard of all the things being done by him, and was perplexed, because it was said by certain, that John hath been raised out of the dead;  8 and by certain, that Elijah did appear, and by others, that a prophet, one of the ancients, was risen;  9 and Herod said, 'John I did behead, but who is this concerning whom I hear such things?' and he was seeking to see him.  Joh 6:1-2 :  1 After these things Jesus went away beyond the sea of Galilee (of Tiberias),  2 and there was following him a great multitude, because they were seeing his signs that he was doing on the ailing;

Mat 14:15-22 :  15 and evening having come, his disciples came to him, saying, 'The place is desolate, and the hour hath now past, let away the multitudes that, having gone to the villages, they may buy to themselves food.'  16 And Jesus said to them, 'They have no need to go away -- give ye them to eat.'  17 And they say to him, 'We have not here except five loaves, and two fishes.'  18 And he said, 'Bring ye them to me hither.'  19 And having commanded the multitudes to recline upon the grass, and having taken the five loaves and the two fishes, having looked up to the heaven, he did bless, and having broken, he gave the loaves to the disciples, and the disciples to the multitudes,  20 and they did all eat, and were filled, and they took up what was over of the broken pieces twelve hand-baskets full;  21 and those eating were about five thousand men, apart from women and children.  22 And immediately Jesus constrained his disciples to go into the boat, and to go before him to the other side, till he might let away the multitudes;  Mar 6:30-46 :  30 And the apostles are gathered together unto Jesus, and they told him all, and how many things they did, and how many things they taught,  31 and he said to them, 'Come ye yourselves apart to a desert place, and rest a little,' for those coming and those going were many, and not even to eat had they opportunity,  32 and they went away to a desert place, in the boat, by themselves.  33 And the multitudes saw them going away, and many recognised him, and by land from all the cities they ran thither, and went before them, and came together to him,  34 and having come forth, Jesus saw a great multitude, and was moved with compassion on them, that they were as sheep not having a shepherd, and he began to teach many things.  35 And now the hour being advanced, his disciples having come near to him, say, -- 'The place is desolate, and the hour is now advanced,  36 let them away, that, having gone away to the surrounding fields and villages, they may buy to themselves loaves, for what they may eat they have not.'  37 And he answering said to them, 'Give ye them to eat,' and they say to him, 'Having gone away, may we buy two hundred denaries' worth of loaves, and give to them to eat?'  38 And he saith to them, 'How many loaves have ye? go and see;' and having known, they say, 'Five, and two fishes.'  39 And he commanded them to make all recline in companies upon the green grass,  40 and they sat down in squares, by hundreds, and by fifties.  41 And having taken the five loaves and the two fishes, having looked up to the heaven, he blessed, and brake the loaves, and was giving to his disciples, that they may set before them, and the two fishes divided he to all,  42 and they did all eat, and were filled,  43 and they took up of broken pieces twelve hand-baskets full, and of the fishes,  44 and those eating of the loaves were about five thousand men.  45 And immediately he constrained his disciples to go into the boat, and to go before to the other side, unto Bethsaida, till he may let the multitude away,  46 and having taken leave of them, he went away to the mountain to pray.  Luk 9:10-17 :  10 And the apostles having turned back, declared to him how great things they did, and having taken them, he withdrew by himself to a desert place of a city called Bethsaida,  11 and the multitudes having known did follow him, and having received them, he was speaking to them concerning the reign of God, and those having need of service he cured.  12 And the day began to decline, and the twelve having come near, said to him, 'Let away the multitude, that having gone to the villages and the fields round about, they may lodge and may find provision, because here we are in a desert place.'  13 And he said unto them, 'Give ye them to eat;' and they said, 'We have no more than five loaves, and two fishes: except, having gone, we may buy for all this people victuals;'  14 for they were about five thousand men. And he said unto his disciples, 'Cause them to recline in companies, in each fifty;'  15 and they did so, and made all to recline;  16 and having taken the five loaves, and the two fishes, having looked up to the heaven, he blessed them, and brake, and was giving to the disciples to set before the multitude;  17 and they did eat, and were all filled, and there was taken up what was over to them of broken pieces, twelve baskets.  Joh 6:3-15 :  3 and Jesus went up to the mount, and he was there sitting with his disciples,  4 and the passover was nigh, the feast of the Jews.  5 Jesus then having lifted up his eyes and having seen that a great multitude doth come to him, saith unto Philip, 'Whence shall we buy loaves, that these may eat?' --  6 and this he said, trying him, for he himself had known what he was about to do.  7 Philip answered him, 'Two hundred denaries' worth of loaves are not sufficient to them, that each of them may receive some little;'  8 one of his disciples -- Andrew, the brother of Simon Peter -- saith to him,  9 'There is one little lad here who hath five barley loaves, and two fishes, but these -- what are they to so many?'  10 And Jesus said, 'Make the men to sit down;' and there was much grass in the place, the men then sat down, in number, as it were, five thousand,  11 and Jesus took the loaves, and having given thanks he distributed to the disciples, and the disciples to those reclining, in like manner, also of the little fishes as much as they wished.  12 And when they were filled, he saith to his disciples, 'Gather together the broken pieces that are over, that nothing may be lost;'  13 they gathered together, therefore, and filled twelve hand-baskets with broken pieces, from the five barley loaves that were over to those having eaten.  14 The men, then, having seen the sign that Jesus did, said -- 'This is truly the Prophet, who is coming to the world;'  15 Jesus, therefore, having known that they are about to come, and to take him by force that they may make him king, retired again to the mountain himself alone.

Mat 14:23-36 :  23 and having let away the multitudes, he went up to the mountain by himself to pray, and evening having come, he was there alone,  24 and the boat was now in the midst of the sea, distressed by the waves, for the wind was contrary.  25 And in the fourth watch of the night Jesus went away to them, walking upon the sea,  26 and the disciples having seen him walking upon the sea, were troubled saying -- 'It is an apparition,' and from the fear they cried out;  27 and immediately Jesus spake to them, saying, 'Be of good courage, I am he, be not afraid.'  28 And Peter answering him said, 'Sir, if it is thou, bid me come to thee upon the waters;'  29 and he said, 'Come;' and having gone down from the boat, Peter walked upon the waters to come unto Jesus,  30 but seeing the wind vehement, he was afraid, and having begun to sink, he cried out, saying, 'Sir, save me.'  31 And immediately Jesus, having stretched forth the hand, laid hold of him, and saith to him, 'Little faith! for what didst thou waver?'  32 and they having gone to the boat the wind lulled,  33 and those in the boat having come, did bow to him, saying, 'Truly -- God's Son art thou.'  34 And having passed over, they came to the land of Gennesaret,  35 and having recognized him, the men of that place sent forth to all that region round about, and they brought to him all who were ill,  36 and were calling on him that they might only touch the fringe of his garment, and as many as did touch were saved.  Mar 6:47-56 :  47 And evening having come, the boat was in the midst of the sea, and he alone upon the land;  48 and he saw them harassed in the rowing, for the wind was against them, and about the fourth watch of the night he doth come to them walking on the sea, and wished to pass by them.  49 And they having seen him walking on the sea, thought it to be an apparition, and cried out,  50 for they all saw him, and were troubled, and immediately he spake with them, and saith to them, 'Take courage, I am he, be not afraid.'  51 And he went up unto them to the boat, and the wind lulled, and greatly out of measure were they amazed in themselves, and were wondering,  52 for they understood not concerning the loaves, for their heart hath been hard.  53 And having passed over, they came upon the land of Gennesaret, and drew to the shore,  54 and they having come forth out of the boat, immediately having recognised him,  55 having run about through all that region round about, they began upon the couches to carry about those ill, where they were hearing that he is,  56 and wherever he was going, to villages, or cities, or fields, in the market-places they were laying the infirm, and were calling upon him, that they may touch if it were but the fringe of his garment, and as many as were touching him were saved.    Joh 6:16-21 :  16 And when evening came, his disciples went down to the sea,  17 and having entered into the boat, they were going over the sea to Capernaum, and darkness had already come, and Jesus had not come unto them,  18 the sea also -- a great wind blowing -- was being raised,  19 having pushed onwards, therefore, about twenty-five or thirty furlongs, they behold Jesus walking on the sea, and coming nigh to the boat, and they were afraid;  20 and he saith to them, 'I am he, be not afraid;'  21 they were willing then to receive him into the boat, and immediately the boat came unto the land to which they were going.

      Joh 6:22-71 :  22 On the morrow, the multitude that was standing on the other side of the sea, having seen that there was no other little boat there except one -- that into which his disciples entered -- and that Jesus went not in with his disciples into the little boat, but his disciples went away alone,  23 (and other little boats came from Tiberias, nigh the place where they did eat the bread, the Lord having given thanks),  24 when therefore the multitude saw that Jesus is not there, nor his disciples, they also themselves did enter into the boats, and came to Capernaum seeking Jesus;  25 and having found him on the other side of the sea, they said to him, 'Rabbi, when hast thou come hither?'  26 Jesus answered them and said, 'Verily, verily, I say to you, Ye seek me, not because ye saw signs, but because ye did eat of the loaves, and were satisfied;  27 work not for the food that is perishing, but for the food that is remaining to life age-during, which the Son of Man will give to you, for him did the Father seal -- even God.'  28 They said therefore unto him, 'What may we do that we may work the works of God?'  29 Jesus answered and said to them, 'This is the work of God, that ye may believe in him whom He did send.'  30 They said therefore to him, 'What sign, then, dost thou, that we may see and may believe thee? what dost thou work?  31 our fathers the manna did eat in the wilderness, according as it is having been written, Bread out of the heaven He gave them to eat.'  32 Jesus, therefore, said to them, 'Verily, verily, I say to you, Moses did not give you the bread out of the heaven; but my Father doth give you the true bread out of the heaven;  33 for the bread of God is that which is coming down out of the heaven, and giving life to the world.'  34 They said, therefore, unto him, 'Sir, always give us this bread.'  35 And Jesus said to them, 'I am the bread of the life; he who is coming unto me may not hunger, and he who is believing in me may not thirst -- at any time;  36 but I said to you, that ye also have seen me, and ye believe not;  37 all that the Father doth give to me will come unto me; and him who is coming unto me, I may in no wise cast without,  38 because I have come down out of the heaven, not that I may do my will, but the will of Him who sent me.  39 'And this is the will of the Father who sent me, that all that He hath given to me I may not lose of it, but may raise it up in the last day;  40 and this is the will of Him who sent me, that every one who is beholding the Son, and is believing in him, may have life age-during, and I will raise him up in the last day.'  41 The Jews, therefore, were murmuring at him, because he said, 'I am the bread that came down out of the heaven;'  42 and they said, 'Is not this Jesus, the son of Joseph, whose father and mother we have known? how then saith this one -- Out of the heaven I have come down?'  43 Jesus answered, therefore, and said to them, 'Murmur not one with another;  44 no one is able to come unto me, if the Father who sent me may not draw him, and I will raise him up in the last day;  45 it is having been written in the prophets, And they shall be all taught of God; every one therefore who heard from the Father, and learned, cometh to me;  46 not that any one hath seen the Father, except he who is from God, he hath seen the Father.  47 'Verily, verily, I say to you, He who is believing in me, hath life age-during;  48 I am the bread of the life;  49 your fathers did eat the manna in the wilderness, and they died;  50 this is the bread that out of the heaven is coming down, that any one may eat of it, and not die.  51 'I am the living bread that came down out of the heaven; if any one may eat of this bread he shall live -- to the age; and the bread also that I will give is my flesh, that I will give for the life of the world.'  52 The Jews, therefore, were striving with one another, saying, 'How is this one able to give us his flesh to eat?'  53 Jesus, therefore, said to them, 'Verily, verily, I say to you, If ye may not eat the flesh of the Son of Man, and may not drink his blood, ye have no life in yourselves;  54 he who is eating my flesh, and is drinking my blood, hath life age-during, and I will raise him up in the last day;  55 for my flesh truly is food, and my blood truly is drink;  56 he who is eating my flesh, and is drinking my blood, doth remain in me, and I in him.  57 'According as the living Father sent me, and I live because of the Father, he also who is eating me, even that one shall live because of me;  58 this is the bread that came down out of the heaven; not as your fathers did eat the manna, and died; he who is eating this bread shall live -- to the age.'  59 These things he said in a synagogue, teaching in Capernaum;  60 many, therefore, of his disciples having heard, said, 'This word is hard; who is able to hear it?'  61 And Jesus having known in himself that his disciples are murmuring about this, said to them, 'Doth this stumble you?  62 if then ye may behold the Son of Man going up where he was before?  63 the spirit it is that is giving life; the flesh doth not profit anything; the sayings that I speak to you are spirit, and they are life;  64 but there are certain of you who do not believe;' for Jesus had known from the beginning who they are who are not believing, and who is he who will deliver him up,  65 and he said, 'Because of this I have said to you -- No one is able to come unto me, if it may not have been given him from my Father.'  66 From this time many of his disciples went away backward, and were no more walking with him,  67 Jesus, therefore, said to the twelve, 'Do ye also wish to go away?'  68 Simon Peter, therefore, answered him, 'Sir, unto whom shall we go? thou hast sayings of life age-during;  69 and we have believed, and we have known, that thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God.'  70 Jesus answered them, 'Did not I choose you -- the twelve? and of you -- one is a devil.  71 And he spake of Judas, Simon's son, Iscariot, for he was about to deliver him up, being one of the twelve.

Mat 15:1-31 :  1 Then come unto Jesus do they from Jerusalem -- scribes and Pharisees -- saying,  2 'Wherefore do thy disciples transgress the tradition of the elders? for they do not wash their hands when they may eat bread.'  3 And he answering said to them, 'Wherefore also do ye transgress the command of God because of your tradition?  4 for God did command, saying, Honour thy father and mother; and, He who is speaking evil of father or mother -- let him die the death;  5 but ye say, Whoever may say to father or mother, An offering is whatever thou mayest be profited by me; --  6 and he may not honour his father or his mother, and ye did set aside the command of God because of your tradition.  7 'Hypocrites, well did Isaiah prophesy of you, saying,  8 This people doth draw nigh to Me with their mouth, and with the lips it doth honour Me, but their heart is far off from Me;  9 and in vain do they worship Me, teaching teachings -- commands of men.'  10 And having called near the multitude, he said to them, 'Hear and understand:  11 not that which is coming into the mouth doth defile the man, but that which is coming forth from the mouth, this defileth the man.'  12 Then his disciples having come near, said to him, 'Hast thou known that the Pharisees, having heard the word, were stumbled?'  13 And he answering said, 'Every plant that my heavenly Father did not plant shall be rooted up;  14 let them alone, guides they are -- blind of blind; and if blind may guide blind, both into a ditch shall fall.'  15 And Peter answering said to him, 'Explain to us this simile.'  16 And Jesus said, 'Are ye also yet without understanding?  17 do ye not understand that all that is going into the mouth doth pass into the belly, and into the drain is cast forth?  18 but the things coming forth from the mouth from the heart do come forth, and these defile the man;  19 for out of the heart come forth evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, whoredoms, thefts, false witnessings, evil speakings:  20 these are the things defiling the man; but to eat with unwashen hands doth not defile the man.'  21 And Jesus having come forth thence, withdrew to the parts of Tyre and Sidon,  22 and lo, a woman, a Canaanitess, from those borders having come forth, did call to him, saying, 'Deal kindly with me, Sir -- Son of David; my daughter is miserably demonized.'  23 And he did not answer her a word; and his disciples having come to him, were asking him, saying -- 'Let her away, because she crieth after us;'  24 and he answering said, 'I was not sent except to the lost sheep of the house of Israel.'  25 And having come, she was bowing to him, saying, 'Sir, help me;'  26 and he answering said, 'It is not good to take the children's bread, and to cast to the little dogs.'  27 And she said, 'Yes, sir, for even the little dogs do eat of the crumbs that are falling from their lords' table;'  28 then answering, Jesus said to her, 'O woman, great is thy faith, let it be to thee as thou wilt;' and her daughter was healed from that hour.  29 And Jesus having passed thence, came nigh unto the sea of Galilee, and having gone up to the mountain, he was sitting there,  30 and there came to him great multitudes, having with them lame, blind, dumb, maimed, and many others, and they did cast them at the feet of Jesus, and he healed them,  31 so that the multitudes did wonder, seeing dumb ones speaking, maimed whole, lame walking, and blind seeing; and they glorified the God of Israel.  Mar 7 :  1 And gathered together unto him are the Pharisees, and certain of the scribes, having come from Jerusalem,  2 and having seen certain of his disciples with defiled hands -- that is, unwashed -- eating bread, they found fault;  3 for the Pharisees, and all the Jews, if they do not wash the hands to the wrist, do not eat, holding the tradition of the elders,  4 and, coming from the market-place, if they do not baptize themselves, they do not eat; and many other things there are that they received to hold, baptisms of cups, and pots, and brazen vessels, and couches.  5 Then question him do the Pharisees and the scribes, 'Wherefore do thy disciples not walk according to the tradition of the elders, but with unwashed hands do eat the bread?'  6 and he answering said to them -- 'Well did Isaiah prophesy concerning you, hypocrites, as it hath been written, This people with the lips doth honor Me, and their heart is far from Me;  7 and in vain do they worship Me, teaching teachings, commands of men;  8 for, having put away the command of God, ye hold the tradition of men, baptisms of pots and cups; and many other such like things ye do.'  9 And he said to them, 'Well do ye put away the command of God that your tradition ye may keep;  10 for Moses said, Honour thy father and thy mother; and, He who is speaking evil of father or mother -- let him die the death;  11 and ye say, If a man may say to father or to mother, Korban (that is, a gift), is whatever thou mayest be profited out of mine,  12 and no more do ye suffer him to do anything for his father or for his mother,  13 setting aside the word of God for your tradition that ye delivered; and many such like things ye do.'  14 And having called near all the multitude, he said to them, 'Hearken to me, ye all, and understand;  15 there is nothing from without the man entering into him that is able to defile him, but the things coming out from him, those are the things defiling the man.  16 If any hath ears to hear -- let him hear.'  17 And when he entered into a house from the multitude, his disciples were questioning him about the simile,  18 and he saith to them, 'So also ye are without understanding! Do ye not perceive that nothing from without entering into the man is able to defile him?  19 because it doth not enter into his heart, but into the belly, and into the drain it doth go out, purifying all the meats.'  20 And he said -- 'That which is coming out from the man, that doth defile the man;  21 for from within, out of the heart of men, the evil reasonings do come forth, adulteries, whoredoms, murders,  22 thefts, covetous desires, wickedness, deceit, arrogance, an evil eye, evil speaking, pride, foolishness;  23 all these evils do come forth from within, and they defile the man.'  24 And from thence having risen, he went away to the borders of Tyre and Sidon, and having entered into the house, he wished none to know, and he was not able to be hid,  25 for a woman having heard about him, whose little daughter had an unclean spirit, having come, fell at his feet, --  26 and the woman was a Greek, a Syro-Phenician by nation -- and was asking him, that the demon he may cast forth out of her daughter.  27 And Jesus said to her, 'Suffer first the children to be filled, for it is not good to take the children's bread, and to cast it to the little dogs.'  28 And she answered and saith to him, 'Yes, sir; for the little dogs also under the table do eat of the children's crumbs.'  29 And he said to her, 'Because of this word go; the demon hath gone forth out of thy daughter;'  30 and having come away to her house, she found the demon gone forth, and the daughter laid upon the couch.  31 And again, having gone forth from the coasts of Tyre and Sidon, he came unto the sea of Galilee, through the midst of the coasts of Decapolis,  32 and they bring to him a deaf, stuttering man, and they call on him that he may put the hand on him.  33 And having taken him away from the multitude by himself, he put his fingers to his ears, and having spit, he touched his tongue,  34 and having looked to the heaven, he sighed, and saith to him, 'Ephphatha,' that is, 'Be thou opened;'  35 and immediately were his ears opened, and the string of his tongue was loosed, and he was speaking plain.  36 And he charged them that they may tell no one, but the more he was charging them, the more abundantly they were proclaiming it,  37 and they were being beyond measure astonished, saying, 'Well hath he done all things; both the deaf he doth make to hear, and the dumb to speak.'

Mat 15:32-39 :  32 And Jesus having called near his disciples, said, 'I have compassion upon the multitude, because now three days they continue with me, and they have not what they may eat; and to let them away fasting I will not, lest they faint in the way.'  33 And his disciples say to him, 'Whence to us, in a wilderness, so many loaves, as to fill so great a multitude?'  34 And Jesus saith to them, 'How many loaves have ye?' and they said, 'Seven, and a few little fishes.'  35 And he commanded the multitudes to sit down upon the ground,  36 and having taken the seven loaves and the fishes, having given thanks, he did break, and gave to his disciples, and the disciples to the multitude.  37 And they did all eat, and were filled, and they took up what was over of the broken pieces seven baskets full,  38 and those eating were four thousand men, apart from women and children.  39 And having let away the multitudes, he went into the boat, and did come to the borders of Magdala.  Mar 8:1-10 :  1 In those days the multitude being very great, and not having what they may eat, Jesus having called near his disciples, saith to them,  2 'I have compassion upon the multitude, because now three days they do continue with me, and they have not what they may eat;  3 and if I shall let them away fasting to their home, they will faint in the way, for certain of them are come from far.'  4 And his disciples answered him, 'Whence shall any one be able these here to feed with bread in a wilderness?'  5 And he was questioning them, 'How many loaves have ye?' and they said, 'Seven.'  6 And he commanded the multitude to sit down upon the ground, and having taken the seven loaves, having given thanks, he brake, and was giving to his disciples that they may set before them; and they did set before the multitude.  7 And they had a few small fishes, and having blessed, he said to set them also before them;  8 and they did eat and were filled, and they took up that which was over of broken pieces -- seven baskets;  9 and those eating were about four thousand. And he let them away,  10 and immediately having entered into the boat with his disciples, he came to the parts of Dalmanutha,

Mat 16:1-12 :  1 And the Pharisees and Sadducees having come, tempting, did question him, to shew to them a sign from the heaven,  2 and he answering said to them, 'Evening having come, ye say, Fair weather, for the heaven is red,  3 and at morning, Foul weather to-day, for the heaven is red -- gloomy; hypocrites, the face of the heavens indeed ye do know to discern, but the signs of the times ye are not able!  4 'A generation evil and adulterous doth seek a sign, and a sign shall not be given to it, except the sign of Jonah the prophet;' and having left them he went away.  5 And his disciples having come to the other side, forgot to take loaves,  6 and Jesus said to them, 'Beware, and take heed of the leaven of the Pharisees and Sadducees;'  7 and they were reasoning in themselves, saying, 'Because we took no loaves.'  8 And Jesus having known, said to them, 'Why reason ye in yourselves, ye of little faith, because ye took no loaves?  9 do ye not yet understand, nor remember the five loaves of the five thousand, and how many hand-baskets ye took up?  10 nor the seven loaves of the four thousand, and how many baskets ye took up?  11 how do ye not understand that I did not speak to you of bread -- to take heed of the leaven of the Pharisees and Sadducees?'  12 Then they understood that he did not say to take heed of the leaven of the bread, but of the teaching, of the Pharisees and Sadducees.  Mar 8:11-21 :  11 and the Pharisees came forth, and began to dispute with him, seeking from him a sign from the heaven, tempting him;  12 and having sighed deeply in his spirit, he saith, 'Why doth this generation seek after a sign? Verily I say to you, no sign shall be given to this generation.'  13 And having left them, having entered again into the boat, he went away to the other side;  14 and they forgot to take loaves, and except one loaf they had nothing with them in the boat,  15 and he was charging them, saying, 'Take heed, beware of the leaven of the Pharisees, and of the leaven of Herod,'  16 and they were reasoning with one another, saying -- 'Because we have no loaves.'  17 And Jesus having known, saith to them, 'Why do ye reason, because ye have no loaves? do ye not yet perceive, nor understand, yet have ye your heart hardened?  18 Having eyes, do ye not see? and having ears, do ye not hear? and do ye not remember?  19 When the five loaves I did brake to the five thousand, how many hand-baskets full of broken pieces took ye up?' they say to him, 'Twelve.'  20 'And when the seven to the four thousand, how many hand-baskets full of broken pieces took ye up?' and they said, 'Seven.'  21 And he said to them, 'How do ye not understand?'

Mat 16:13-20 :  13 And Jesus, having come to the parts of Cesarea Philippi, was asking his disciples, saying, 'Who do men say me to be -- the Son of Man?'  14 and they said, 'Some, John the Baptist, and others, Elijah, and others, Jeremiah, or one of the prophets.'  15 He saith to them, 'And ye -- who do ye say me to be?'  16 and Simon Peter answering said, 'Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God.'  17 And Jesus answering said to him, 'Happy art thou, Simon Bar-Jona, because flesh and blood did not reveal it to thee, but my Father who is in the heavens.  18 'And I also say to thee, that thou art a rock, and upon this rock I will build my assembly, and gates of Hades shall not prevail against it;  19 and I will give to thee the keys of the reign of the heavens, and whatever thou mayest bind upon the earth shall be having been bound in the heavens, and whatever thou mayest loose upon the earth shall be having been loosed in the heavens.'  20 Then did he charge his disciples that they may say to no one that he is Jesus the Christ.  Mar 8:27-30 :  27 And Jesus went forth, and his disciples, to the villages of Cesarea Philippi, and in the way he was questioning his disciples, saying to them, 'Who do men say me to be?'  28 And they answered, 'John the Baptist, and others Elijah, but others one of the prophets.'  29 And he saith to them, 'And ye -- who do ye say me to be?' and Peter answering saith to him, 'Thou art the Christ.'  30 And he strictly charged them that they may tell no one about it,  Luk 9:18-21 :  18 And it came to pass, as he is praying alone, the disciples were with him, and he questioned them, saying, 'Who do the multitudes say me to be?'  19 And they answering said, 'John the Baptist; and others, Elijah; and others, that a prophet, one of the ancients, was risen;'  20 and he said to them, 'And ye -- who do ye say me to be?' and Peter answering said, 'The Christ of God.'  21 And having charged them, he commanded them to say this to no one,

Mat 16:21-27 :  21 From that time began Jesus to shew to his disciples that it is necessary for him to go away to Jerusalem, and to suffer many things from the elders, and chief priests, and scribes, and to be put to death, and the third day to rise.  22 And having taken him aside, Peter began to rebuke him, saying, 'Be kind to thyself, sir; this shall not be to thee;'  23 and he having turned, said to Peter, 'Get thee behind me, adversary! thou art a stumbling-block to me, for thou dost not mind the things of God, but the things of men.'  24 Then said Jesus to his disciples, 'If any one doth will to come after me, let him disown himself, and take up his cross, and follow me,  25 for whoever may will to save his life, shall lose it, and whoever may lose his life for my sake shall find it,  26 for what is a man profited if he may gain the whole world, but of his life suffer loss? or what shall a man give as an exchange for his life?  27 'For, the Son of Man is about to come in the glory of his Father, with his messengers, and then he will reward each, according to his work.  Mar 8:31-38 :  31 and began to teach them, that it behoveth the Son of Man to suffer many things, and to be rejected by the elders, and chief priests, and scribes, and to be killed, and after three days to rise again;  32 and openly he was speaking the word. And Peter having taken him aside, began to rebuke him,  33 and he, having turned, and having looked on his disciples, rebuked Peter, saying, 'Get behind me, Adversary, because thou dost not mind the things of God, but the things of men.'  34 And having called near the multitude, with his disciples, he said to them, 'Whoever doth will to come after me -- let him disown himself, and take up his cross, and follow me;  35 for whoever may will to save his life shall lose it; and whoever may lose his life for my sake and for the good news' sake, he shall save it;  36 for what shall it profit a man, if he may gain the whole world, and forfeit his life?  37 Or what shall a man give as an exchange for his life?  38 for whoever may be ashamed of me, and of my words, in this adulterous and sinful generation, the Son of Man also shall be ashamed of him, when he may come in the glory of his Father, with the holy messengers.'  Luk 9:22-26 :  22 saying -- 'It behoveth the Son of Man to suffer many things, and to be rejected by the elders, and chief priests, and scribes, and to be killed, and the third day to be raised.'  23 And he said unto all, 'If any one doth will to come after me, let him disown himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me;  24 for whoever may will to save his life, shall lose it, and whoever may lose his life for my sake, he shall save it;  25 for what is a man profited, having gained the whole world, and having lost or having forfeited himself?  26 'For whoever may be ashamed of me, and of my words, of this one shall the Son of Man be ashamed, when he may come in his glory, and the Father's, and the holy messengers';

Mat 17:1-13 :  1 And after six days Jesus taketh Peter, and James, and John his brother, and doth bring them up to a high mount by themselves,  2 and he was transfigured before them, and his face shone as the sun, and his garments did become white as the light,  3 and lo, appear to them did Moses and Elijah, talking together with him.  4 And Peter answering said to Jesus, 'Sir, it is good to us to be here; if thou wilt, we may make here three booths -- for thee one, and for Moses one, and one for Elijah.'  5 While he is yet speaking, lo, a bright cloud overshadowed them, and lo, a voice out of the cloud, saying, 'This is My Son, -- the Beloved, in whom I did delight; hear him.'  6 And the disciples having heard, did fall upon their face, and were exceedingly afraid,  7 and Jesus having come near, touched them, and said, 'Rise, be not afraid,'  8 and having lifted up their eyes, they saw no one, except Jesus only.  9 And as they are coming down from the mount, Jesus charged them, saying, 'Say to no one the vision, till the Son of Man out of the dead may rise.'  10 And his disciples questioned him, saying, 'Why then do the scribes say that Elijah it behoveth to come first?'  11 And Jesus answering said to them, 'Elijah doth indeed come first, and shall restore all things,  12 and I say to you -- Elijah did already come, and they did not know him, but did with him whatever they would, so also the Son of Man is about to suffer by them.'  13 Then understood the disciples that concerning John the Baptist he spake to them.  Mar 9:2-13 :  2 And after six days doth Jesus take Peter, and James, and John, and bringeth them up to a high mount by themselves, alone, and he was transfigured before them,  3 and his garments became glittering, white exceedingly, as snow, so as a fuller upon the earth is not able to whiten them.  4 And there appeared to them Elijah with Moses, and they were talking with Jesus.  5 And Peter answering saith to Jesus, 'Rabbi, it is good to us to be here; and we may make three booths, for thee one, and for Moses one, and for Elijah one:'  6 for he was not knowing what he might say, for they were greatly afraid.  7 And there came a cloud overshadowing them, and there came a voice out of the cloud, saying, 'This is My Son -- the Beloved, hear ye him;'  8 and suddenly, having looked around, they saw no one any more, but Jesus only with themselves.  9 And as they are coming down from the mount, he charged them that they may declare to no one the things that they saw, except when the Son of Man may rise out of the dead;  10 and the thing they kept to themselves, questioning together what the rising out of the dead is.  11 And they were questioning him, saying, that the scribes say that Elijah it behoveth to come first.  12 And he answering said to them, 'Elijah indeed, having come first, doth restore all things; and how hath it been written concerning the Son of Man, that many things he may suffer, and be set at nought?  13 But I say to you, That also Elijah hath come, and they did to him what they willed, as it hath been written of him.'  Luk 9:28-36 :  28 And it came to pass, after these words, as it were eight days, that having taken Peter, and John, and James, he went up to the mountain to pray,  29 and it came to pass, in his praying, the appearance of his face became altered, and his garment white -- sparkling.  30 And lo, two men were speaking together with him, who were Moses and Elijah,  31 who having appeared in glory, spake of his outgoing that he was about to fulfil in Jerusalem,  32 but Peter and those with him were heavy with sleep, and having waked, they saw his glory, and the two men standing with him.  33 And it came to pass, in their parting from him, Peter said unto Jesus, 'Master, it is good to us to be here; and we may make three booths, one for thee, and one for Moses, and one for Elijah,' not knowing what he saith:  34 and as he was speaking these things, there came a cloud, and overshadowed them, and they feared in their entering into the cloud,  35 and a voice came out of the cloud saying, 'This is My Son -- the Beloved; hear ye him;'  36 and when the voice was past, Jesus was found alone; and they were silent, and declared to no one in those days anything of what they have seen.

Mat 17:14-21 :  14 And when they came unto the multitude, there came to him a man, kneeling down to him,  15 and saying, 'Sir, deal kindly with my son, for he is lunatic, and doth suffer miserably, for often he doth fall into the fire, and often into the water,  16 and I brought him near to thy disciples, and they were not able to heal him.'  17 And Jesus answering said, 'O generation, unstedfast and perverse, till when shall I be with you? till when shall I bear you? bring him to me hither;'  18 and Jesus rebuked him, and the demon went out of him, and the lad was healed from that hour.  19 Then the disciples having come to Jesus by himself, said, 'Wherefore were we not able to cast him out?'  20 And Jesus said to them, 'Through your want of faith; for verily I say to you, if ye may have faith as a grain of mustard, ye shall say to this mount, Remove hence to yonder place, and it shall remove, and nothing shall be impossible to you,  21 and this kind doth not go forth except in prayer and fasting.'  Mar 9:14-29 :  14 And having come unto the disciples, he saw a great multitude about them, and scribes questioning with them,  15 and immediately, all the multitude having seen him, were amazed, and running near, were saluting him.  16 And he questioned the scribes, 'What dispute ye with them?'  17 and one out of the multitude answering said, 'Teacher, I brought my son unto thee, having a dumb spirit;  18 and wherever it doth seize him, it doth tear him, and he foameth, and gnasheth his teeth, and pineth away; and I spake to thy disciples that they may cast it out, and they were not able.'  19 And he answering him, said, 'O generation unbelieving, till when shall I be with you? till when shall I suffer you? bring him unto me;'  20 and they brought him unto him, and he having seen him, immediately the spirit tare him, and he, having fallen upon the earth, was wallowing -- foaming.  21 And he questioned his father, 'How long time is it since this came to him?' and he said, 'From childhood,  22 and many times also it cast him into fire, and into water, that it might destroy him; but if thou art able to do anything, help us, having compassion on us.'  23 And Jesus said to him, 'If thou art able to believe! all things are possible to the one that is believing;'  24 and immediately the father of the child, having cried out, with tears said, 'I believe, sir; be helping mine unbelief.'  25 Jesus having seen that a multitude doth run together, rebuked the unclean spirit, saying to it, 'Spirit -- dumb and deaf -- I charge thee, come forth out of him, and no more thou mayest enter into him;'  26 and having cried, and rent him much, it came forth, and he became as dead, so that many said that he was dead,  27 but Jesus, having taken him by the hand, lifted him up, and he arose.  28 And he having come into the house, his disciples were questioning him by himself -- 'Why were we not able to cast it forth?'  29 And he said to them, 'This kind is able to come forth with nothing except with prayer and fasting.'  Luk 9:37-42 :  37 And it came to pass on the next day, they having come down from the mount, there met him a great multitude,  38 and lo, a man from the multitude cried out, saying, 'Teacher, I beseech thee, look upon my son, because he is my only begotten;  39 and lo, a spirit doth take him, and suddenly he doth cry out, and it teareth him, with foaming, and it hardly departeth from him, bruising him,  40 and I besought thy disciples that they might cast it out, and they were not able.'  41 And Jesus answering said, 'O generation, unstedfast and perverse, till when shall I be with you, and suffer you? bring near hither thy son;'  42 and as he is yet coming near, the demon rent him, and tore him sore, and Jesus rebuked the unclean spirit, and healed the youth, and gave him back to his father.

Jesus said to him, 'Then are the sons free;  27 but, that we may not cause them to stumble, having gone to the sea, cast a hook, and the fish that hath come up first take thou up, and having opened its mouth, thou shalt find a stater, that having taken, give to them for me and thee.'

Mat 18:1-9 :  1 At that hour came the disciples near to Jesus, saying, 'Who, now, is greater in the reign of the heavens?'  2 And Jesus having called near a child, did set him in the midst of them,  3 and said, 'Verily I say to you, if ye may not be turned and become as the children, ye may not enter into the reign of the heavens;  4 whoever then may humble himself as this child, he is the greater in the reign of the heavens.  5 'And he who may receive one such child in my name, doth receive me,  6 and whoever may cause to stumble one of those little ones who are believing in me, it is better for him that a weighty millstone may be hanged upon his neck, and he may be sunk in the depth of the sea.  7 'Wo to the world from the stumbling-blocks! for there is a necessity for the stumbling-blocks to come, but wo to that man through whom the stumbling-block doth come!  8 'And if thy hand or thy foot doth cause thee to stumble, cut them off and cast from thee; it is good for thee to enter into the life lame or maimed, rather than having two hands or two feet, to be cast to the fire the age-during.  9 'And if thine eye doth cause thee to stumble, pluck it out and cast from thee; it is good for thee one-eyed to enter into the life, rather than having two eyes to be cast to the gehenna of the fire.  Mar 9:33-50 :  33 And he came to Capernaum, and being in the house, he was questioning them, 'What were ye reasoning in the way among yourselves?'  34 and they were silent, for with one another they did reason in the way who is greater;  35 and having sat down he called the twelve, and he saith to them, 'If any doth will to be first, he shall be last of all, and minister of all.'  36 And having taken a child, he set him in the midst of them, and having taken him in his arms, said to them,  37 'Whoever may receive one of such children in my name, doth receive me, and whoever may receive me, doth not receive me, but Him who sent me.'  38 And John did answer him, saying, 'Teacher, we saw a certain one in thy name casting out demons, who doth not follow us, and we forbade him, because he doth not follow us.'  39 And Jesus said, 'Forbid him not, for there is no one who shall do a mighty work in my name, and shall be able readily to speak evil of me:  40 for he who is not against us is for us;  41 for whoever may give you to drink a cup of water in my name, because ye are Christ's, verily I say to you, he may not lose his reward;  42 and whoever may cause to stumble one of the little ones believing in me, better is it for him if a millstone is hanged about his neck, and he hath been cast into the sea.  43 'And if thy hand may cause thee to stumble, cut it off; it is better for thee maimed to enter into the life, than having the two hands, to go away to the gehenna, to the fire -- the unquenchable --  44 where there worm is not dying, and the fire is not being quenched.  45 'And if thy foot may cause thee to stumble, cut it off; it is better for thee to enter into the life lame, than having the two feet to be cast to the gehenna, to the fire -- the unquenchable --  46 where there worm is not dying, and the fire is not being quenched.  47 And if thine eye may cause thee to stumble, cast it out; it is better for thee one-eyed to enter into the reign of God, than having two eyes, to be cast to the gehenna of the fire --  48 where their worm is not dying, and the fire is not being quenched;  49 for every one with fire shall be salted, and every sacrifice with salt shall be salted.  50 The salt is good, but if the salt may become saltless, in what will ye season it? Have in yourselves salt, and have peace in one another.'  Luk 9:46-50 :  46 And there entered a reasoning among them, this, Who may be greater of them?  47 and Jesus having seen the reasoning of their heart, having taken hold of a child, set him beside himself,  48 and said to them, 'Whoever may receive this child in my name, doth receive me, and whoever may receive me, doth receive Him who sent me, for he who is least among you all -- he shall be great.'  49 And John answering said, 'Master, we saw a certain one in thy name casting forth the demons, and we forbade him, because he doth not follow with us;'  50 and Jesus said unto him, 'Forbid not, for he who is not against us, is for us.'

Mat 18:10-35 :  10 'Beware! -- ye may not despise one of these little ones, for I say to you, that their messengers in the heavens do always behold the face of my Father who is in the heavens,  11 for the Son of Man did come to save the lost.  12 'What think ye? if a man may have an hundred sheep, and there may go astray one of them, doth he not -- having left the ninety-nine, having gone on the mountains -- seek that which is gone astray?  13 and if it may come to pass that he doth find it, verily I say to you, that he doth rejoice over it more than over the ninety-nine that have not gone astray;  14 so it is not will in presence of your Father who is in the heavens, that one of these little ones may perish.  15 'And if thy brother may sin against thee, go and show him his fault between thee and him alone, if he may hear thee, thou didst gain thy brother;  16 and if he may not hear, take with thee yet one or two, that by the mouth of two witnesses or three every word may stand.  17 'And if he may not hear them, say it to the assembly, and if also the assembly he may not hear, let him be to thee as the heathen man and the tax-gatherer.  18 'Verily I say to you, Whatever things ye may bind upon the earth shall be having been bound in the heavens, and whatever things ye may loose on the earth shall be having been loosed in the heavens.  19 'Again, I say to you, that, if two of you may agree on the earth concerning anything, whatever they may ask -- it shall be done to them from my Father who is in the heavens,  20 for where there are two or three gathered together -- to my name, there am I in the midst of them.'  21 Then Peter having come near to him, said, 'Sir, how often shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him -- till seven times?'  22 Jesus saith to him, 'I do not say to thee till seven times, but till seventy times seven.  23 'Because of this was the reign of the heavens likened to a man, a king, who did will to take reckoning with his servants,  24 and he having begun to take account, there was brought near to him one debtor of a myriad of talents,  25 and he having nothing to pay, his lord did command him to be sold, and his wife, and the children, and all, whatever he had, and payment to be made.  26 The servant then, having fallen down, was bowing to him, saying, Sir, have patience with me, and I will pay thee all;  27 and the lord of that servant having been moved with compassion did release him, and the debt he forgave him.  28 'And, that servant having come forth, found one of his fellow-servants who was owing him an hundred denaries, and having laid hold, he took him by the throat, saying, Pay me that which thou owest.  29 His fellow-servant then, having fallen down at his feet, was calling on him, saying, Have patience with me, and I will pay thee all;  30 and he would not, but having gone away, he cast him into prison, till he might pay that which was owing.  31 'And his fellow-servants having seen the things that were done, were grieved exceedingly, and having come, shewed fully to their lord all the things that were done;  32 then having called him, his lord saith to him, Evil servant! all that debt I did forgive thee, seeing thou didst call upon me,  33 did it not behove also thee to have dealt kindly with thy fellow-servant, as I also dealt kindly with thee?  34 'And having been wroth, his lord delivered him to the inquisitors, till he might pay all that was owing to him;  35 so also my heavenly Father will do to you, if ye may not forgive each one his brother from your hearts their trespasses.'

Mat 19:1 :  And it came to pass, when Jesus finished these words, he removed from Galilee, and did come to the borders of Judea, beyond the Jordan,  Mar 10:1 :  And having risen thence, he doth come to the coasts of Judea, through the other side of the Jordan, and again do ...  Luk 9:51-56 :  51 And it came to pass, in the completing of the days of his being taken up, that he fixed his face to go on to Jerusalem,  52 and he sent messengers before his face, and having gone on, they went into a village of Samaritans, to make ready for him,  53 and they did not receive him, because his face was going on to Jerusalem.  54 And his disciples James and John having seen, said, 'Sir, wilt thou that we may command fire to come down from the heaven, and to consume them, as also Elijah did?'  55 and having turned, he rebuked them, and said, 'Ye have not known of what spirit ye are;  56 for the Son of Man did not come to destroy men's lives, but to save;' and they went on to another village.  Joh 7:1-10 :  1 And Jesus was walking after these things in Galilee, for he did not wish to walk in Judea, because the Jews were seeking to kill him,  2 and the feast of the Jews was nigh -- that of tabernacles --  3 his brethren, therefore, said unto him, 'Remove hence, and go away to Judea, that thy disciples also may behold thy works that thou dost;  4 for no one in secret doth anything, and himself seeketh to be in public; if thou dost these things -- manifest thyself to the world;'  5 for not even were his brethren believing in him.  6 Jesus, therefore, saith to them, 'My time is not yet present, but your time is always ready;  7 the world is not able to hate you, but me it doth hate, because I testify concerning it that its works are evil.  8 Ye -- go ye up to this feast; I do not yet go up to this feast, because my time hath not yet been fulfilled;'  9 and saying these things to them, he remained in Galilee.  10 And when his brethren went up, then also he himself went up to the feast, not manifestly, but as in secret;

    Luk 10 :  1 And after these things, the Lord did appoint also other seventy, and sent them by twos before his face, to every city and place whither he himself was about to come,  2 then said he unto them, 'The harvest indeed is abundant, but the workmen few; beseech ye then the Lord of the harvest, that He may put forth workmen to His harvest.  3 'Go away; lo, I send you forth as lambs in the midst of wolves;  4 carry no bag, no scrip, nor sandals; and salute no one on the way;  5 and into whatever house ye do enter, first say, Peace to this house;  6 and if indeed there may be there the son of peace, rest on it shall your peace; and if not so, upon you it shall turn back.  7 'And in that house remain, eating and drinking the things they have, for worthy is the workman of his hire; go not from house to house,  8 and into whatever city ye enter, and they may receive you, eat the things set before you,  9 and heal the ailing in it, and say to them, The reign of God hath come nigh to you.  10 'And into whatever city ye do enter, and they may not receive you, having gone forth to its broad places, say,  11 And the dust that hath cleaved to us, from your city, we do wipe off against you, but this know ye, that the reign of God hath come nigh to you;  12 and I say to you, that for Sodom in that day it shall be more tolerable than for that city.  13 'Wo to thee, Chorazin; wo to thee, Bethsaida; for if in Tyre and Sidon had been done the mighty works that were done in you, long ago, sitting in sackcloth and ashes, they had reformed;  14 but for Tyre and Sidon it shall be more tolerable in the judgment than for you.  15 'And thou, Capernaum, which unto the heaven wast exalted, unto hades thou shalt be brought down.  16 'He who is hearing you, doth hear me; and he who is putting you away, doth put me away; and he who is putting me away, doth put away Him who sent me.'  17 And the seventy turned back with joy, saying, 'Sir, and the demons are being subjected to us in thy name;'  18 and he said to them, 'I was beholding the Adversary, as lightning from the heaven having fallen;  19 lo, I give to you the authority to tread upon serpents and scorpions, and on all the power of the enemy, and nothing by any means shall hurt you;  20 but, in this rejoice not, that the spirits are subjected to you, but rejoice rather that your names were written in the heavens.'  21 In that hour was Jesus glad in the Spirit, and said, 'I do confess to thee, Father, Lord of the heaven and of the earth, that Thou didst hide these things from wise men and understanding, and didst reveal them to babes; yes, Father, because so it became good pleasure before Thee.  22 'All things were delivered up to me by my Father, and no one doth know who the Son is, except the Father, and who the Father is, except the Son, and he to whom the Son may wish to reveal Him.'  23 And having turned unto the disciples, he said, by themselves, 'Happy the eyes that are perceiving what ye perceive;  24 for I say to you, that many prophets and kings did wish to see what ye perceive, and did not see, and to hear what ye hear, and did not hear.'  25 And lo, a certain lawyer stood up, trying him, and saying, 'Teacher, what having done, life age-during shall I inherit?'  26 And he said unto him, 'In the law what hath been written? how dost thou read?'  27 And he answering said, 'Thou shalt love the Lord thy God out of all thy heart, and out of all thy soul, and out of all thy strength, and out of all thy understanding, and thy neighbour as thyself.'  28 And he said to him, 'Rightly thou didst answer; this do, and thou shalt live.'  29 And he, willing to declare himself righteous, said unto Jesus, 'And who is my neighbour?'  30 and Jesus having taken up the word, said, 'A certain man was going down from Jerusalem to Jericho, and fell among robbers, and having stripped him and inflicted blows, they went away, leaving him half dead.  31 'And by a coincidence a certain priest was going down in that way, and having seen him, he passed over on the opposite side;  32 and in like manner also, a Levite, having been about the place, having come and seen, passed over on the opposite side.  33 'But a certain Samaritan, journeying, came along him, and having seen him, he was moved with compassion,  34 and having come near, he bound up his wounds, pouring on oil and wine, and having lifted him up on his own beast, he brought him to an inn, and was careful of him;  35 and on the morrow, going forth, taking out two denaries, he gave to the innkeeper, and said to him, Be careful of him, and whatever thou mayest spend more, I, in my coming again, will give back to thee.  36 'Who, then, of these three, seemeth to thee to have become neighbour of him who fell among the robbers?'  37 and he said, 'He who did the kindness with him,' then Jesus said to him, 'Be going on, and thou be doing in like manner.'  38 And it came to pass, in their going on, that he entered into a certain village, and a certain woman, by name Martha, did receive him into her house,  39 and she had also a sister, called Mary, who also, having seated herself beside the feet of Jesus, was hearing the word,  40 and Martha was distracted about much serving, and having stood by him, she said, 'Sir, dost thou not care that my sister left me alone to serve? say then to her, that she may partake along with me.'  41 And Jesus answering said to her, 'Martha, Martha, thou art anxious and disquieted about many things,  42 but of one thing there is need, and Mary the good part did choose, that shall not be taken away from her.'

      Joh 8 :  1 And at dawn he came again to the temple,  2 and all the people were coming unto him, and having sat down, he was teaching them;  3 and the scribes and the Pharisees bring unto him a woman having been taken in adultery, and having set her in the midst,  4 they say to him, 'Teacher, this woman was taken in the very crime -- committing adultery,  5 and in the law, Moses did command us that such be stoned; thou, therefore, what dost thou say?'  6 and this they said, trying him, that they might have to accuse him. And Jesus, having stooped down, with the finger he was writing on the ground,  7 and when they continued asking him, having bent himself back, he said unto them, 'The sinless of you -- let him first cast the stone at her;'  8 and again having stooped down, he was writing on the ground,  9 and they having heard, and by the conscience being convicted, were going forth one by one, having begun from the elders -- unto the last; and Jesus was left alone, and the woman standing in the midst.  10 And Jesus having bent himself back, and having seen no one but the woman, said to her, 'Woman, where are those -- thine accusers? did no one pass sentence upon thee?'  11 and she said, 'No one, Sir;' and Jesus said to her, 'Neither do I pass sentence on thee; be going on, and no more sin.'  12 Again, therefore, Jesus spake to them, saying, 'I am the light of the world; he who is following me shall not walk in the darkness, but he shall have the light of the life.'  13 The Pharisees, therefore, said to him, 'Thou of thyself dost testify, thy testimony is not true;'  14 Jesus answered and said to them, 'And if I testify of myself -- my testimony is true, because I have known whence I came, and whither I go, and ye -- ye have not known whence I come, or whither I go.  15 'Ye according to the flesh do judge; I do not judge any one,  16 and even if I do judge my judgment is true, because I am not alone, but I and the Father who sent me;  17 and also in your law it hath been written, that the testimony of two men are true;  18 I am one who is testifying of myself, and the Father who sent me doth testify of me.'  19 They said, therefore, to him, 'Where is thy father?' Jesus answered, 'Ye have neither known me nor my Father: if me ye had known, my Father also ye had known.'  20 These sayings spake Jesus in the treasury, teaching in the temple, and no one seized him, because his hour had not yet come;  21 therefore said Jesus again to them, 'I go away, and ye will seek me, and in your sin ye shall die; whither I go away, ye are not able to come.'  22 The Jews, therefore, said, 'Will he kill himself, because he saith, Whither I go away, ye are not able to come?'  23 and he said to them, 'Ye are from beneath, I am from above; ye are of this world, I am not of this world;  24 I said, therefore, to you, that ye shall die in your sins, for if ye may not believe that I am he, ye shall die in your sins.'  25 They said, therefore, to him, 'Thou -- who art thou?' and Jesus said to them, 'Even what I did speak of to you at the beginning;  26 many things I have to speak concerning you and to judge, but He who sent me is true, and I -- what things I heard from Him -- these I say to the world.'  27 They knew not that of the Father he spake to them;  28 Jesus, therefore, said to them, 'When ye may lift up the Son of Man then ye will know that I am he; and of myself I do nothing, but according as my Father did teach me, these things I speak;  29 and He who sent me is with me; the Father did not leave me alone, because I, the things pleasing to Him, do always.'  30 As he is speaking these things, many believed in him;  31 Jesus, therefore, said unto the Jews who believed in him, 'If ye may remain in my word, truly my disciples ye are, and ye shall know the truth,  32 and the truth shall make you free.'  33 They answered him, 'Seed of Abraham we are; and to no one have we been servants at any time; how dost thou say -- Ye shall become free?'  34 Jesus answered them, 'Verily, verily, I say to you -- Every one who is committing sin, is a servant of the sin,  35 and the servant doth not remain in the house -- to the age, the son doth remain -- to the age;  36 if then the son may make you free, in reality ye shall be free.  37 'I have known that ye are seed of Abraham, but ye seek to kill me, because my word hath no place in you;  38 I -- that which I have seen with my Father do speak, and ye, therefore, that which ye have seen with your father -- ye do.'  39 They answered and said to him, 'Our father is Abraham;' Jesus saith to them, 'If children of Abraham ye were, the works of Abraham ye were doing;  40 and now, ye seek to kill me -- a man who hath spoken to you the truth I heard from God; this Abraham did not;  41 ye do the works of your father.' They said, therefore, to him, 'We of whoredom have not been born; one Father we have -- God;'  42 Jesus then said to them, 'If God were your father, ye were loving me, for I came forth from God, and am come; for neither have I come of myself, but He sent me;  43 wherefore do ye not know my speech? because ye are not able to hear my word.  44 'Ye are of a father -- the devil, and the desires of your father ye will to do; he was a man-slayer from the beginning, and in the truth he hath not stood, because there is no truth in him; when one may speak the falsehood, of his own he speaketh, because he is a liar -- also his father.  45 'And because I say the truth, ye do not believe me.  46 Who of you doth convict me of sin? and if I speak truth, wherefore do ye not believe me?  47 he who is of God, the sayings of God he doth hear; because of this ye do not hear, because of God ye are not.'  48 The Jews, therefore, answered and said to him, 'Do we not say well, that thou art a Samaritan, and hast a demon?'  49 Jesus answered, 'I have not a demon, but I honour my Father, and ye dishonour me;  50 and I do not seek my own glory; there is who is seeking and is judging;  51 verily, verily, I say to you, If any one may keep my word, death he may not see -- to the age.'  52 The Jews, therefore, said to him, 'Now we have known that thou hast a demon; Abraham did die, and the prophets, and thou dost say, If any one may keep my word, he shall not taste of death -- to the age!  53 Art thou greater than our father Abraham, who died? and the prophets died; whom dost thou make thyself?'  54 Jesus answered, 'If I glorify myself, my glory is nothing; it is my Father who is glorifying me, of whom ye say that He is your God;  55 and ye have not known Him, and I have known Him, and if I say that I have not known Him, I shall be like you -- speaking falsely; but I have known Him, and His word I keep;  56 Abraham, your father, was glad that he might see my day; and he saw, and did rejoice.'  57 The Jews, therefore, said unto him, 'Thou art not yet fifty years old, and Abraham hast thou seen?'  58 Jesus said to them, 'Verily, verily, I say to you, Before Abraham's coming -- I am;'  59 they took up, therefore, stones that they may cast at him, but Jesus hid himself, and went forth out of the temple, going through the midst of them, and so passed by.

      Joh 9 :  1 And passing by, he saw a man blind from birth,  2 and his disciples asked him, saying, 'Rabbi, who did sin, this one or his parents, that he should be born blind?'  3 Jesus answered, 'Neither did this one sin nor his parents, but that the works of God may be manifested in him;  4 it behoveth me to be working the works of Him who sent me while it is day; night doth come, when no one is able to work: --  5 when I am in the world, I am a light of the world.'  6 These things saying, he spat on the ground, and made clay of the spittle, and rubbed the clay on the eyes of the blind man, and said to him,  7 'Go away, wash at the pool of Siloam,' which is, interpreted, Sent. He went away, therefore, and did wash, and came seeing;  8 the neighbours, therefore, and those seeing him before, that he was blind, said, 'Is not this he who is sitting and begging?'  9 others said -- 'This is he;' and others -- 'He is like to him;' he himself said, -- 'I am he.'  10 They said, therefore, to him, 'How were thine eyes opened?'  11 he answered and said, 'A man called Jesus made clay, and rubbed my eyes, and said to me, Go away to the pool of Siloam, and wash; and having gone away and having washed, I received sight;'  12 they said, therefore, to him, 'Where is that one?' he saith, 'I have not known.'  13 They bring him to the Pharisees who once was blind,  14 and it was a sabbath when Jesus made the clay, and opened his eyes.  15 Again, therefore, the Pharisees also were asking him how he received sight, and he said to them, 'Clay he did put upon my eyes, and I did wash -- and I see.'  16 Of the Pharisees, therefore, certain said, 'This man is not from God, because the sabbath he doth not keep;' others said, 'How is a man -- a sinful one -- able to do such signs?' and there was a division among them.  17 They said to the blind man again, 'Thou -- what dost thou say of him -- that he opened thine eyes?'  18 and he said -- 'He is a prophet.' The Jews, therefore, did not believe concerning him that he was blind and did receive sight, till that they called the parents of him who received sight,  19 and they asked them, saying, 'Is your son, of whom ye say that he was born blind? how then now doth he see?'  20 His parents answered them and said, 'We have known that this is our son, and that he was born blind;  21 and how he now seeth, we have not known; or who opened his eyes, we have not known; himself is of age, ask him; he himself shall speak concerning himself.'  22 These things said his parents, because they were afraid of the Jews, for already had the Jews agreed together, that if any one may confess him -- Christ, he may be put out of the synagogue;  23 because of this his parents said -- 'He is of age, ask him.'  24 They called, therefore, a second time the man who was blind, and they said to him, 'Give glory to God, we have known that this man is a sinner;'  25 he answered, therefore, and said, 'If he be a sinner -- I have not known, one thing I have known, that, being blind, now I see.'  26 And they said to him again, 'What did he to thee? how did he open thine eyes?'  27 He answered them, 'I told you already, and ye did not hear; why again do ye wish to hear? do ye also wish to become his disciples?'  28 They reviled him, therefore, and said, 'Thou art his disciple, and we are Moses' disciples;  29 we have known that God hath spoken to Moses, but this one -- we have not known whence he is.'  30 The man answered and said to them, 'Why, in this is a wonderful thing, that ye have not known whence he is, and he opened my eyes!  31 and we have known that God doth not hear sinners, but, if any one may be a worshipper of God, and may do His will, him He doth hear;  32 from the age it was not heard, that any one did open eyes of one who hath been born blind;  33 if this one were not from God, he were not able to do anything.'  34 They answered and said to him, 'In sins thou wast born altogether, and thou dost teach us!' and they cast him forth without.  35 Jesus heard that they cast him forth without, and having found him, he said to him, 'Dost thou believe in the Son of God?'  36 he answered and said, 'Who is he, sir, that I may believe in him?'  37 And Jesus said to him, 'Thou hast both seen him, and he who is speaking with thee is he;'  38 and he said, 'I believe, sir,' and bowed before him.  39 And Jesus said, 'For judgment I to this world did come, that those not seeing may see, and those seeing may become blind.'  40 And those of the Pharisees who were with him heard these things, and they said to him, 'Are we also blind?'  41 Jesus said to them, 'If ye were blind, ye were not having had sin, but now ye say -- We see, therefore doth your sin remain.

      Joh 10:1-21 :  1 'Verily, verily, I say to you, He who is not entering through the door to the fold of the sheep, but is going up from another side, that one is a thief and a robber;  2 and he who is entering through the door is shepherd of the sheep;  3 to this one the doorkeeper doth open, and the sheep hear his voice, and his own sheep he doth call by name, and doth lead them forth;  4 and when his own sheep he may put forth, before them he goeth on, and the sheep follow him, because they have known his voice;  5 and a stranger they will not follow, but will flee from him, because they have not known the voice of strangers.'  6 This similitude spake Jesus to them, and they knew not what the things were that he was speaking to them;  7 Jesus said therefore again to them, 'Verily, verily, I say to you -- I am the door of the sheep;  8 all, as many as came before me, are thieves and robbers, but the sheep did not hear them;  9 I am the door, through me if any one may come in, he shall be saved, and he shall come in, and go out, and find pasture.  10 'The thief doth not come, except that he may steal, and kill, and destroy; I came that they may have life, and may have it abundantly.  11 'I am the good shepherd; the good shepherd his life layeth down for the sheep;  12 and the hireling, and not being a shepherd, whose own the sheep are not, doth behold the wolf coming, and doth leave the sheep, and doth flee; and the wolf catcheth them, and scattereth the sheep;  13 and the hireling doth flee because he is an hireling, and is not caring for the sheep.  14 'I am the good shepherd, and I know my sheep, and am known by mine,  15 according as the Father doth know me, and I know the Father, and my life I lay down for the sheep,  16 and other sheep I have that are not of this fold, these also it behoveth me to bring, and my voice they will hear, and there shall become one flock -- one shepherd.  17 'Because of this doth the Father love me, because I lay down my life, that again I may take it;  18 no one doth take it from me, but I lay it down of myself; authority I have to lay it down, and authority I have again to take it; this command I received from my Father.'  19 Therefore, again, there came a division among the Jews, because of these words,  20 and many of them said, 'He hath a demon, and is mad, why do ye hear him?'  21 others said, 'These sayings are not those of a demoniac; is a demon able blind men's eyes to open?'

    Luk 11:1-28 :  1 And it came to pass, in his being in a certain place praying, as he ceased, a certain one of his disciples said unto him, 'Sir, teach us to pray, as also John taught his disciples.'  2 And he said to them, 'When ye may pray, say ye: Our Father who art in the heavens; hallowed be Thy name: Thy reign come; Thy will come to pass, as in heaven also on earth;  3 our appointed bread be giving us daily;  4 and forgive us our sins, for also we ourselves forgive every one indebted to us; and mayest Thou not bring us into temptation; but do Thou deliver us from the evil.'  5 And he said unto them, 'Who of you shall have a friend, and shall go on unto him at midnight, and may say to him, Friend, lend me three loaves,  6 seeing a friend of mine came out of the way unto me, and I have not what I shall set before him,  7 and he from within answering may say, Do not give me trouble, already the door hath been shut, and my children with me are in the bed, I am not able, having risen, to give to thee.  8 'I say to you, even if he will not give to him, having risen, because of his being his friend, yet because of his importunity, having risen, he will give him as many as he doth need;  9 and I say to you, Ask, and it shall be given to you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened to you;  10 for every one who is asking doth receive; and he who is seeking doth find; and to him who is knocking it shall be opened.  11 'And of which of you -- the father -- if the son shall ask a loaf, a stone will he present to him? and if a fish, will he instead of a fish, a serpent present to him?  12 and if he may ask an egg, will he present to him a scorpion?  13 If, then, ye, being evil, have known good gifts to be giving to your children, how much more shall the Father who is from heaven give the Holy Spirit to those asking Him!'  14 And he was casting forth a demon, and it was dumb, and it came to pass, the demon having gone forth, the dumb man spake, and the multitudes wondered,  15 and certain of them said, 'By Beelzeboul, ruler of the demons, he doth cast forth the demons;'  16 and others, tempting, a sign out of heaven from him were asking.  17 And he, knowing their thoughts, said to them, 'Every kingdom having been divided against itself is desolated; and house against house doth fall;  18 and if also the Adversary against himself was divided, how shall his kingdom be made to stand? for ye say, by Beelzeboul is my casting forth the demons.  19 'But if I by Beelzeboul cast forth the demons -- your sons, by whom do they cast forth? because of this your judges they shall be;  20 but if by the finger of God I cast forth the demons, then come unawares upon you did the reign of God.  21 'When the strong man armed may keep his hall, in peace are his goods;  22 but when the stronger than he, having come upon him, may overcome him, his whole-armour he doth take away in which he had trusted, and his spoils he distributeth;  23 he who is not with me is against me, and he who is not gathering with me doth scatter.  24 'When the unclean spirit may go forth from the man it walketh through waterless places seeking rest, and not finding, it saith, I will turn back to my house whence I came forth;  25 and having come, it findeth it swept and adorned;  26 then doth it go, and take to it seven other spirits more evil than itself, and having entered, they dwell there, and the last of that man becometh worst than the first.'  27 And it came to pass, in his saying these things, a certain woman having lifted up the voice out of the multitude, said to him, 'Happy the womb that carried thee, and the paps that thou didst suck!'  28 And he said, 'Yea, rather, happy those hearing the word of God, and keeping it!'

Mat 19:3-12 :  3 And the Pharisees came near to him, tempting him, and saying to him, 'Is it lawful for a man to put away his wife for every cause?'  4 And he answering said to them, 'Did ye not read, that He who made them, from the beginning a male and a female made them,  5 and said, For this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and cleave to his wife, and they shall be -- the two -- for one flesh?  6 so that they are no more two, but one flesh; what therefore God did join together, let no man put asunder.'  7 They say to him, 'Why then did Moses command to give a roll of divorce, and to put her away?'  8 He saith to them -- 'Moses for your stiffness of heart did suffer you to put away your wives, but from the beginning it hath not been so.  9 'And I say to you, that, whoever may put away his wife, if not for whoredom, and may marry another, doth commit adultery; and he who did marry her that hath been put away, doth commit adultery.'  10 His disciples say to him, 'If the case of the man with the woman is so, it is not good to marry.'  11 And he said to them, 'All do not receive this word, but those to whom it hath been given;  12 for there are eunuchs who from the mother's womb were so born; and there are eunuchs who were made eunuchs by men; and there are eunuchs who kept themselves eunuchs because of the reign of the heavens: he who is able to receive it -- let him receive.'  Mar 10:2-12 :  2 And the Pharisees, having come near, questioned him, if it is lawful for a husband to put away a wife, tempting him,  3 and he answering said to them, 'What did Moses command you?'  4 and they said, 'Moses suffered to write a bill of divorce, and to put away.'  5 And Jesus answering said to them, 'For the stiffness of your heart he wrote you this command,  6 but from the beginning of the creation, a male and a female God did make them;  7 on this account shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall cleave unto his wife,  8 and they shall be -- the two -- for one flesh; so that they are no more two, but one flesh;  9 what therefore God did join together, let not man put asunder.'  10 And in the house again his disciples of the same thing questioned him,  11 and he saith to them, 'Whoever may put away his wife, and may marry another, doth commit adultery against her;  12 and if a woman may put away her husband, and is married to another, she committeth adultery.'  Luk 11:29-54 :  29 And the multitudes crowding together upon him, he began to say, 'This generation is evil, a sign it doth seek after, and a sign shall not be given to it, except the sign of Jonah the prophet,  30 for as Jonah became a sign to the Ninevites, so also shall the Son of Man be to this generation.  31 'A queen of the south shall rise up in the judgment with the men of this generation, and shall condemn them, because she came from the ends of the earth to hear the wisdom of Solomon; and lo, greater than Solomon here!  32 'Men of Nineveh shall stand up in the judgment with this generation, and shall condemn it, because they reformed at the proclamation of Jonah; and lo, greater than Jonah here!  33 'And no one having lighted a lamp, doth put it in a secret place, nor under the measure, but on the lamp-stand, that those coming in may behold the light.  34 'The lamp of the body is the eye, when then thine eye may be simple, thy whole body also is lightened; and when it may be evil, thy body also is darkened;  35 take heed, then, lest the light that is in thee be darkness;  36 if then thy whole body is lightened, not having any part darkened, the whole shall be lightened, as when the lamp by the brightness may give thee light.'  37 And in his speaking, a certain Pharisee was asking him that he might dine with him, and having gone in, he reclined (at meat),  38 and the Pharisee having seen, did wonder that he did not first baptize himself before the dinner.  39 And the Lord said unto him, 'Now do ye, the Pharisees, the outside of the cup and of the plate make clean, but your inward part is full of rapine and wickedness;  40 unthinking! did not He who made the outside also the inside make?  41 But what ye have give ye as alms, and, lo, all things are clean to you.  42 'But wo to you, the Pharisees, because ye tithe the mint, and the rue, and every herb, and ye pass by the judgment, and the love of God; these things it behoveth to do, and those not to be neglecting.  43 'Wo to you, the Pharisees, because ye love the first seats in the synagogues, and the salutations in the market-places.  44 'Wo to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites, because ye are as the unseen tombs, and the men walking above have not known.'  45 And one of the lawyers answering, saith to him, 'Teacher, these things saying, us also thou dost insult;'  46 and he said, 'And to you, the lawyers, wo! because ye burden men with burdens grievous to be borne, and ye yourselves with one of your fingers do not touch the burdens.  47 'Wo to you, because ye build the tombs of the prophets, and your fathers killed them.  48 Then do ye testify, and are well pleased with the works of your fathers, because they indeed killed them, and ye do build their tombs;  49 because of this also the wisdom of God said: I will send to them prophets, and apostles, and some of them they shall kill and persecute,  50 that the blood of all the prophets, that is being poured forth from the foundation of the world, may be required from this generation;  51 from the blood of Abel unto the blood of Zacharias, who perished between the altar and the house; yes, I say to you, It shall be required from this generation.  52 'Wo to you, the lawyers, because ye took away the key of the knowledge; yourselves ye did not enter; and those coming in, ye did hinder.'  53 And in his speaking these things unto them, the scribes and the Pharisees began fearfully to urge and to press him to speak about many things,  54 laying wait for him, and seeking to catch something out of his mouth, that they might accuse him.

    Luk 12 :  1 At which time the myriads of the multitude having been gathered together, so as to tread upon one another, he began to say unto his disciples, first, 'Take heed to yourselves of the leaven of the Pharisees, which is hypocrisy;  2 and there is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed; and hid, that shall not be known;  3 because whatever in the darkness ye said, in the light shall be heard: and what to the ear ye spake in the inner-chambers, shall be proclaimed upon the house-tops.  4 'And I say to you, my friends, be not afraid of those killing the body, and after these things are not having anything over to do;  5 but I will show to you, whom ye may fear; Fear him who, after the killing, is having authority to cast to the gehenna; yes, I say to you, Fear ye Him.  6 'Are not five sparrows sold for two assars? and one of them is not forgotten before God,  7 but even the hairs of your head have been all numbered; therefore fear ye not, than many sparrows ye are of more value.  8 'And I say to you, Every one -- whoever may confess with me before men, the Son of Man also shall confess with him before the messengers of God,  9 and he who hath denied me before men, shall be denied before the messengers of God,  10 and every one whoever shall say a word to the Son of Man, it shall be forgiven to him, but to him who to the Holy Spirit did speak evil, it shall not be forgiven.  11 'And when they bring you before the synagogues, and the rulers, and the authorities, be not anxious how or what ye may reply, or what ye may say,  12 for the Holy Spirit shall teach you in that hour what it behoveth you to say.'  13 And a certain one said to him, out of the multitude, 'Teacher, say to my brother to divide with me the inheritance.'  14 And he said to him, 'Man, who set me a judge or a divider over you?'  15 And he said unto them, 'Observe, and beware of the covetousness, because not in the abundance of one's goods is his life.'  16 And he spake a simile unto them, saying, 'Of a certain rich man the field brought forth well;  17 and he was reasoning within himself, saying, What shall I do, because I have not where I shall gather together my fruits?  18 and he said, This I will do, I will take down my storehouses, and greater ones I will build, and I will gather together there all my products and my good things,  19 and I will say to my soul, Soul, thou hast many good things laid up for many years, be resting, eat, drink, be merry.  20 'And God said to him, Unthinking one! this night thy soul they shall require from thee, and what things thou didst prepare -- to whom shall they be?  21 so is he who is treasuring up to himself, and is not rich toward God.'  22 And he said unto his disciples, 'Because of this, to you I say, Be not anxious for your life, what ye may eat; nor for the body, what ye may put on;  23 the life is more than the nourishment, and the body than the clothing.  24 'Consider the ravens, that they sow not, nor reap, to which there is no barn nor storehouse, and God doth nourish them; how much better are ye than the fowls?  25 and who of you, being anxious, is able to add to his age one cubit?  26 If, then, ye are not able for the least -- why for the rest are ye anxious?  27 'Consider the lilies, how do they grow? they labour not, nor do they spin, and I say to you, not even Solomon in all his glory was arrayed as one of these;  28 and if the herbage in the field, that to-day is, and to-morrow into an oven is cast, God doth so clothe, how much more you -- ye of little faith?  29 'And ye -- seek not what ye may eat, or what ye may drink, and be not in suspense,  30 for all these things do the nations of the world seek after, and your Father hath known that ye have need of these things;  31 but, seek ye the reign of God, and all these things shall be added to you.  32 'Fear not, little flock, because your Father did delight to give you the reign;  33 sell your goods, and give alms, make to yourselves bags that become not old, a treasure unfailing in the heavens, where thief doth not come near, nor moth destroy;  34 for where your treasure is, there also your heart will be.  35 'Let your loins be girded, and the lamps burning,  36 and ye like to men waiting for their lord, when he shall return out of the wedding feasts, that he having come and knocked, immediately they may open to him.  37 'Happy those servants, whom the lord, having come, shall find watching; verily I say to you, that he will gird himself, and will cause them to recline (at meat), and having come near, will minister to them;  38 and if he may come in the second watch, and in the third watch he may come, and may find it so, happy are those servants.  39 'And this know, that if the master of the house had known what hour the thief doth come, he would have watched, and would not have suffered his house to be broken through;  40 and ye, then, become ye ready, because at the hour ye think not, the Son of Man doth come.'  41 And Peter said to him, 'Sir, unto us this simile dost thou speak, or also unto all?'  42 And the Lord said, 'Who, then, is the faithful and prudent steward whom the lord shall set over his household, to give in season the wheat measure?  43 Happy that servant, whom his lord, having come, shall find doing so;  44 truly I say to you, that over all his goods he will set him.  45 'And if that servant may say in his heart, My lord doth delay to come, and may begin to beat the men-servants and the maid-servants, to eat also, and to drink, and to be drunken;  46 the lord of that servant will come in a day in which he doth not look for him, and in an hour that he doth not know, and will cut him off, and his portion with the unfaithful he will appoint.  47 'And that servant, who having known his lord's will, and not having prepared, nor having gone according to his will, shall be beaten with many stripes,  48 and he who, not having known, and having done things worthy of stripes, shall be beaten with few; and to every one to whom much was given, much shall be required from him; and to whom they did commit much, more abundantly they will ask of him.  49 'Fire I came to cast to the earth, and what will I if already it was kindled?  50 but I have a baptism to be baptized with, and how am I pressed till it may be completed!  51 'Think ye that peace I came to give in the earth? no, I say to you, but rather division;  52 for there shall be henceforth five in one house divided -- three against two, and two against three;  53 a father shall be divided against a son, and a son against a father, a mother against a daughter, and a daughter against a mother, a mother-in-law against her daughter-in-law, and a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law.'  54 And he said also to the multitudes, 'When ye may see the cloud rising from the west, immediately ye say, A shower doth come, and it is so;  55 and when -- a south wind blowing, ye say, that there will be heat, and it is;  56 hypocrites! the face of the earth and of the heaven ye have known to make proof of, but this time -- how do ye not make proof of it?  57 'And why, also, of yourselves, judge ye not what is righteous?  58 for, as thou art going away with thy opponent to the ruler, in the way give diligence to be released from him, lest he may drag thee unto the judge, and the judge may deliver thee to the officer, and the officer may cast thee into prison;  59 I say to thee, thou mayest not come forth thence till even the last mite thou mayest give back.'

    Luk 13:1-22 :  1 And there were present certain at that time, telling him about the Galileans, whose blood Pilate did mingle with their sacrifices;  2 and Jesus answering said to them, 'Think ye that these Galileans became sinners beyond all the Galileans, because they have suffered such things?  3 No -- I say to you, but, if ye may not reform, all ye even so shall perish.  4 'Or those eighteen, on whom the tower in Siloam fell, and killed them; think ye that these became debtors beyond all men who are dwelling in Jerusalem?  5 No -- I say to you, but, if ye may not reform, all ye in like manner shall perish.'  6 And he spake this simile: 'A certain one had a fig-tree planted in his vineyard, and he came seeking fruit in it, and he did not find;  7 and he said unto the vine-dresser, Lo, three years I come seeking fruit in this fig-tree, and do not find, cut it off, why also the ground doth it render useless?  8 'And he answering saith to him, Sir, suffer it also this year, till that I may dig about it, and cast in dung;  9 and if indeed it may bear fruit --; and if not so, thereafter thou shalt cut it off.'  10 And he was teaching in one of the synagogues on the sabbath,  11 and lo, there was a woman having a spirit of infirmity eighteen years, and she was bowed together, and not able to bend back at all,  12 and Jesus having seen her, did call her near, and said to her, 'Woman, thou hast been loosed from thy infirmity;'  13 and he laid on her his hands, and presently she was set upright, and was glorifying God.  14 And the chief of the synagogue answering -- much displeased that on the sabbath Jesus healed -- said to the multitude, 'Six days there are in which it behoveth us to be working; in these, then, coming, be healed, and not on the sabbath-day.'  15 Then the Lord answered him and said, 'Hypocrite, doth not each of you on the sabbath loose his ox or ass from the stall, and having led away, doth water it?  16 and this one, being a daughter of Abraham, whom the Adversary bound, lo, eighteen years, did it not behove to be loosed from this bond on the sabbath-day?'  17 And he saying these things, all who were opposed to him were being ashamed, and all the multitude were rejoicing over all the glorious things that are being done by him.  18 And he said, 'To what is the reign of God like? and to what shall I liken it?  19 It is like to a grain of mustard, which a man having taken, did cast into his garden, and it increased, and came to a great tree, and the fowls of the heavens did rest in its branches.'  20 And again he said, 'To what shall I liken the reign of God?  21 It is like leaven, which a woman, having taken, did hide in three measures of meal, till that all was leavened.'  22 And he was going through cities and villages, teaching, and making progress toward Jerusalem;

    Luk 14:1-24 :  1 And it came to pass, on his going into the house of a certain one of the chiefs of the Pharisees, on a sabbath, to eat bread, that they were watching him,  2 and lo, there was a certain dropsical man before him;  3 and Jesus answering spake to the lawyers and Pharisees, saying, 'Is it lawful on the sabbath-day to heal?'  4 and they were silent, and having taken hold of him, he healed him, and let him go;  5 and answering them he said, 'Of which of you shall an ass or ox fall into a pit, and he will not immediately draw it up on the sabbath-day?'  6 and they were not able to answer him again unto these things.  7 And he spake a simile unto those called, marking how they were choosing out the first couches, saying unto them,  8 'When thou mayest be called by any one to marriage-feasts, thou mayest not recline on the first couch, lest a more honourable than thou may have been called by him,  9 and he who did call thee and him having come shall say to thee, Give to this one place, and then thou mayest begin with shame to occupy the last place.  10 'But, when thou mayest be called, having gone on, recline in the last place, that when he who called thee may come, he may say to thee, Friend, come up higher; then thou shalt have glory before those reclining with thee;  11 because every one who is exalting himself shall be humbled, and he who is humbling himself shall be exalted.'  12 And he said also to him who did call him, 'When thou mayest make a dinner or a supper, be not calling thy friends, nor thy brethren, nor thy kindred, nor rich neighbours, lest they may also call thee again, and a recompense may come to thee;  13 but when thou mayest make a feast, be calling poor, maimed, lame, blind,  14 and happy thou shalt be, because they have not to recompense thee, for it shall be recompensed to thee in the rising again of the righteous.'  15 And one of those reclining with him, having heard these things, said to him, 'Happy is he who shall eat bread in the reign of God;'  16 and he said to him, 'A certain man made a great supper, and called many,  17 and he sent his servant at the hour of the supper to say to those having been called, Be coming, because now are all things ready.  18 'And they began with one consent all to excuse themselves: The first said to him, A field I bought, and I have need to go forth and see it; I beg of thee, have me excused.  19 'And another said, Five yoke of oxen I bought, and I go on to prove them; I beg of thee, have me excused:  20 and another said, A wife I married, and because of this I am not able to come.  21 'And that servant having come, told to his lord these things, then the master of the house, having been angry, said to his servant, Go forth quickly to the broad places and lanes of the city, and the poor, and maimed, and lame, and blind, bring in hither.  22 'And the servant said, Sir, it hath been done as thou didst command, and still there is room.  23 'And the lord said unto the servant, Go forth to the ways and hedges, and constrain to come in, that my house may be filled;  24 for I say to you, that none of those men who have been called shall taste of my supper.'

    Luk 14:25-35 :  25 And there were going on with him great multitudes, and having turned, he said unto them,  26 'If any one doth come unto me, and doth not hate his own father, and mother, and wife, and children, and brothers, and sisters, and yet even his own life, he is not able to be my disciple;  27 and whoever doth not bear his cross, and come after me, is not able to be my disciple.  28 'For who of you, willing to build a tower, doth not first, having sat down, count the expense, whether he have the things for completing?  29 lest that he having laid a foundation, and not being able to finish, all who are beholding may begin to mock him,  30 saying -- This man began to build, and was not able to finish.  31 'Or what king going on to engage with another king in war, doth not, having sat down, first consult if he be able with ten thousand to meet him who with twenty thousand is coming against him?  32 and if not so -- he being yet a long way off -- having sent an embassy, he doth ask the things for peace.  33 'So, then, every one of you who doth not take leave of all that he himself hath, is not able to be my disciple.  34 'The salt is good, but if the salt doth become tasteless, with what shall it be seasoned?  35 neither for land nor for manure is it fit -- they cast it without. He who is having ears to hear -- let him hear.'

    Luk 15 :  1 And all the tax-gatherers and the sinners were coming nigh to him, to hear him,  2 and the Pharisees and the scribes were murmuring, saying -- This one doth receive sinners, and doth eat with them.'  3 And he spake unto them this simile, saying,  4 'What man of you having a hundred sheep, and having lost one out of them, doth not leave behind the ninety-nine in the wilderness, and go on after the lost one, till he may find it?  5 and having found, he doth lay it on his shoulders rejoicing,  6 and having come to the house, he doth call together the friends and the neighbours, saying to them, Rejoice with me, because I found my sheep -- the lost one.  7 'I say to you, that so joy shall be in the heaven over one sinner reforming, rather than over ninety-nine righteous men, who have no need of reformation.  8 'Or what woman having ten drachms, if she may lose one drachm, doth not light a lamp, and sweep the house, and seek carefully till that she may find?  9 and having found, she doth call together the female friends and the neighbours, saying, Rejoice with me, for I found the drachm that I lost.  10 'So I say to you, joy doth come before the messengers of God over one sinner reforming.'  11 And he said, 'A certain man had two sons,  12 and the younger of them said to the father, Father, give me the portion of the substance falling to me, and he divided to them the living.  13 'And not many days after, having gathered all together, the younger son went abroad to a far country, and there he scattered his substance, living riotously;  14 and he having spent all, there came a mighty famine on that country, and himself began to be in want;  15 and having gone on, he joined himself to one of the citizens of that country, and he sent him to the fields to feed swine,  16 and he was desirous to fill his belly from the husks that the swine were eating, and no one was giving to him.  17 'And having come to himself, he said, How many hirelings of my father have a superabundance of bread, and I here with hunger am perishing!  18 having risen, I will go on unto my father, and will say to him, Father, I did sin -- to the heaven, and before thee,  19 and no more am I worthy to be called thy son; make me as one of thy hirelings.  20 'And having risen, he went unto his own father, and he being yet far distant, his father saw him, and was moved with compassion, and having ran he fell upon his neck and kissed him;  21 and the son said to him, Father, I did sin -- to the heaven, and before thee, and no more am I worthy to be called thy son.  22 'And the father said unto his servants, Bring forth the first robe, and clothe him, and give a ring for his hand, and sandals for the feet;  23 and having brought the fatted calf, kill it, and having eaten, we may be merry,  24 because this my son was dead, and did live again, and he was lost, and was found; and they began to be merry.  25 'And his elder son was in a field, and as, coming, he drew nigh to the house, he heard music and dancing,  26 and having called near one of the young men, he was inquiring what these things might be,  27 and he said to him -- Thy brother is arrived, and thy father did kill the fatted calf, because in health he did receive him back.  28 'And he was angry, and would not go in, therefore his father, having come forth, was entreating him;  29 and he answering said to the father, Lo, so many years I do serve thee, and never thy command did I transgress, and to me thou didst never give a kid, that with my friends I might make merry;  30 but when thy son -- this one who did devour thy living with harlots -- came, thou didst kill to him the fatted calf.  31 'And he said to him, Child, thou art always with me, and all my things are thine;  32 but to be merry, and to be glad, it was needful, because this thy brother was dead, and did live again, he was lost, and was found.'

    Luk 16 :  1 And he said also unto his disciples, 'A certain man was rich, who had a steward, and he was accused to him as scattering his goods;  2 and having called him, he said to him, What is this I hear about thee? render the account of thy stewardship, for thou mayest not any longer be steward.  3 'And the steward said in himself, What shall I do, because my lord doth take away the stewardship from me? to dig I am not able, to beg I am ashamed: --  4 I have known what I shall do, that, when I may be removed from the stewardship, they may receive me to their houses.  5 'And having called near each one of his lord's debtors, he said to the first, How much dost thou owe to my lord?  6 and he said, A hundred baths of oil; and he said to him, Take thy bill, and having sat down write fifty.  7 'Afterward to another he said, And thou, how much dost thou owe? and he said, A hundred cors of wheat; and he saith to him, Take thy bill, and write eighty.  8 'And the lord commended the unrighteous steward that he did prudently, because the sons of this age are more prudent than the sons of the light, in respect to their generation.  9 and I say to you, Make to yourselves friends out of the mammon of unrighteousness, that when ye may fail, they may receive you to the age-during tabernacles.  10 'He who is faithful in the least, is also faithful in much; and he who in the least is unrighteous, is also unrighteous in much;  11 if, then, in the unrighteous mammon ye became not faithful -- the true who will entrust to you?  12 and if in the other's ye became not faithful -- your own, who shall give to you?  13 'No domestic is able to serve two lords, for either the one he will hate, and the other he will love; or one he will hold to, and of the other he will be heedless; ye are not able to serve God and mammon.'  14 And also the Pharisees, being lovers of money, were hearing all these things, and were deriding him,  15 and he said to them, 'Ye are those declaring yourselves righteous before men, but God doth know your hearts; because that which among men is high, is abomination before God;  16 the law and the prophets are till John; since then the reign of God is proclaimed good news, and every one doth press into it;  17 and it is easier to the heaven and the earth to pass away, than of the law one tittle to fall.  18 'Every one who is sending away his wife, and marrying another, doth commit adultery; and every one who is marrying her sent away from a husband doth commit adultery.  19 'And -- a certain man was rich, and was clothed in purple and fine linen, making merry sumptuously every day,  20 and there was a certain poor man, by name Lazarus, who was laid at his porch, full of sores,  21 and desiring to be filled from the crumbs that are falling from the table of the rich man; yea, also the dogs, coming, were licking his sores.  22 'And it came to pass, that the poor man died, and that he was carried away by the messengers to the bosom of Abraham -- and the rich man also died, and was buried;  23 and in the hades having lifted up his eyes, being in torments, he doth see Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom,  24 and having cried, he said, Father Abraham, deal kindly with me, and send Lazarus, that he may dip the tip of his finger in water, and may cool my tongue, because I am distressed in this flame.  25 'And Abraham said, Child, remember that thou did receive -- thou -- thy good things in thy life, and Lazarus in like manner the evil things, and now he is comforted, and thou art distressed;  26 and besides all these things, between us and you a great chasm is fixed, so that they who are willing to go over from hence unto you are not able, nor do they from thence to us pass through.  27 'And he said, I pray thee, then, father, that thou mayest send him to the house of my father,  28 for I have five brothers, so that he may thoroughly testify to them, that they also may not come to this place of torment.  29 'Abraham saith to him, They have Moses and the prophets, let them hear them;  30 and he said, No, father Abraham, but if any one from the dead may go unto them, they will reform.  31 And he said to him, If Moses and the prophets they do not hear, neither if one may rise out of the dead will they be persuaded.'

    Luk 17 :  1 And he said unto the disciples, 'It is impossible for the stumbling blocks not to come, but wo to him through whom they come;  2 it is more profitable to him if a weighty millstone is put round about his neck, and he hath been cast into the sea, than that he may cause one of these little ones to stumble.  3 'Take heed to yourselves, and, if thy brother may sin in regard to thee, rebuke him, and if he may reform, forgive him,  4 and if seven times in the day he may sin against thee, and seven times in the day may turn back to thee, saying, I reform; thou shalt forgive him.'  5 And the apostles said to the Lord, 'Add to us faith;'  6 and the Lord said, 'If ye had faith as a grain of mustard, ye would have said to this sycamine, Be uprooted, and be planted in the sea, and it would have obeyed you.  7 'But, who is he of you -- having a servant ploughing or feeding -- who, to him having come in out of the field, will say, Having come near, recline at meat?  8 but will not rather say to him, Prepare what I may sup, and having girded thyself about, minister to me, till I eat and drink, and after these things thou shalt eat and drink?  9 Hath he favour to that servant because he did the things directed? I think not.  10 'So also ye, when ye may have done all the things directed you, say -- We are unprofitable servants, because that which we owed to do -- we have done.'  11 And it came to pass, in his going on to Jerusalem, that he passed through the midst of Samaria and Galilee,  12 and he entering into a certain village, there met him ten leprous men, who stood afar off,  13 and they lifted up the voice, saying, 'Jesus, master, deal kindly with us;'  14 and having seen them, he said to them, 'Having gone on, shew yourselves to the priests;' and it came to pass, in their going, they were cleansed,  15 and one of them having seen that he was healed did turn back, with a loud voice glorifying God,  16 and he fell upon his face at his feet, giving thanks to him, and he was a Samaritan.  17 And Jesus answering said, 'Were not the ten cleansed, and the nine -- where?  18 There were not found who did turn back to give glory to God, except this alien;'  19 and he said to him, 'Having risen, be going on, thy faith hath saved thee.'  20 And having been questioned by the Pharisees, when the reign of God doth come, he answered them, and said, 'The reign of God doth not come with observation;  21 nor shall they say, Lo, here; or lo, there; for lo, the reign of God is within you.'  22 And he said unto his disciples, 'Days will come, when ye shall desire to see one of the days of the Son of Man, and ye shall not behold it;  23 and they shall say to you, Lo, here; or lo, there; ye may not go away, nor follow;  24 for as the lightning that is lightening out of the one part under heaven, to the other part under heaven doth shine, so shall be also the Son of Man in his day;  25 and first it behoveth him to suffer many things, and to be rejected by this generation.  26 'And, as it came to pass in the days of Noah, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of Man;  27 they were eating, they were drinking, they were marrying, they were given in marriage, till the day that Noah entered into the ark, and the deluge came, and destroyed all;  28 in like manner also, as it came to pass in the days of Lot; they were eating, they were drinking, they were buying, they were selling, they were planting, they were building;  29 and on the day Lot went forth from Sodom, He rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed all.  30 'According to these things it shall be, in the day the Son of Man is revealed;  31 in that day, he who shall be on the house top, and his vessels in the house, let him not come down to take them away; and he in the field, in like manner, let him not turn backward;  32 remember the wife of Lot.  33 Whoever may seek to save his life, shall lose it; and whoever may lose it, shall preserve it.  34 'I say to you, In that night, there shall be two men on one couch, the one shall be taken, and the other shall be left;  35 two women shall be grinding at the same place together, the one shall be taken, and the other shall be left;  36 two men shall be in the field, the one shall be taken, and the other left.'  37 And they answering say to him, 'Where, sir?' and he said to them, 'Where the body is, there will the eagles be gathered together.'

Mat 19:13-30 :  13 Then were brought near to him children that he might put hands on them and pray, and the disciples rebuked them.  14 But Jesus said, 'Suffer the children, and forbid them not, to come unto me, for of such is the reign of the heavens;'  15 and having laid on them his hands, he departed thence.  16 And lo, one having come near, said to him, 'Good teacher, what good thing shall I do, that I may have life age-during?'  17 And he said to him, 'Why me dost thou call good? no one is good except One -- God; but if thou dost will to enter into the life, keep the commands.'  18 He saith to him, 'What kind?' And Jesus said, 'Thou shalt not kill, thou shalt not commit adultery, thou shalt not steal, thou shalt not bear false witness,  19 honour thy father and mother, and, thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself.'  20 The young man saith to him, 'All these did I keep from my youth; what yet do I lack?'  21 Jesus said to him, 'If thou dost will to be perfect, go away, sell what thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven, and come, follow me.'  22 And the young man, having heard the word, went away sorrowful, for he had many possessions;  23 and Jesus said to his disciples, 'Verily I say to you, that hardly shall a rich man enter into the reign of the heavens;  24 and again I say to you, it is easier for a camel through the eye of a needle to go, than for a rich man to enter into the reign of God.'  25 And his disciples having heard, were amazed exceedingly, saying, 'Who, then, is able to be saved?'  26 And Jesus having earnestly beheld, said to them, 'With men this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.'  27 Then Peter answering said to him, 'Lo, we did leave all, and follow thee, what then shall we have?'  28 And Jesus said to them, 'Verily I say to you, that ye who did follow me, in the regeneration, when the Son of Man may sit upon a throne of his glory, shall sit -- ye also -- upon twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel;  29 and every one who left houses, or brothers, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or fields, for my name's sake, an hundredfold shall receive, and life age-during shall inherit;  30 and many first shall be last, and last first.  Mar 10:13-31 :  13 And they were bringing to him children, that he might touch them, and the disciples were rebuking those bringing them,  14 and Jesus having seen, was much displeased, and he said to them, 'Suffer the children to come unto me, and forbid them not, for of such is the reign of God;  15 verily I say to you, whoever may not receive the reign of God, as a child -- he may not enter into it;'  16 and having taken them in his arms, having put his hands upon them, he was blessing them.  17 And as he is going forth into the way, one having run and having kneeled to him, was questioning him, 'Good teacher, what may I do, that life age-during I may inherit?'  18 And Jesus said to him, 'Why me dost thou call good? no one is good except One -- God;  19 the commands thou hast known: Thou mayest not commit adultery, Thou mayest do no murder, Thou mayest not steal, Thou mayest not bear false witness, Thou mayest not defraud, Honour thy father and mother.'  20 And he answering said to him, 'Teacher, all these did I keep from my youth.'  21 And Jesus having looked upon him, did love him, and said to him, 'One thing thou dost lack; go away, whatever thou hast -- sell, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven, and come, be following me, having taken up the cross.'  22 And he -- gloomy at the word -- went away sorrowing, for he was having many possessions.  23 And Jesus having looked round, saith to his disciples, 'How hardly shall they who have riches enter into the reign of God!'  24 And the disciples were astonished at his words, and Jesus again answering saith to them, 'Children, how hard is it to those trusting on the riches to enter into the reign of God!  25 It is easier for a camel through the eye of the needle to enter, than for a rich man to enter into the reign of God.'  26 And they were astonished beyond measure, saying unto themselves, 'And who is able to be saved?'  27 And Jesus, having looked upon them, saith, 'With men it is impossible, but not with God; for all things are possible with God.'  28 And Peter began to say to him, 'Lo, we left all, and we followed thee.'  29 And Jesus answering said, 'Verily I say to you, there is no one who left house, or brothers, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or fields, for my sake, and for the good news',  30 who may not receive an hundredfold now in this time, houses, and brothers, and sisters, and mothers, and children, and fields, with persecutions, and in the age that is coming, life age-during;  31 and many first shall be last, and the last first.'  Luk 18:15-30 :  15 And they were bringing near also the babes, that he may touch them, and the disciples having seen did rebuke them,  16 and Jesus having called them near, said, 'Suffer the little children to come unto me, and forbid them not, for of such is the reign of God;  17 verily I say to you, Whoever may not receive the reign of God as a little child, may not enter into it.'  18 And a certain ruler questioned him, saying, 'Good teacher, what having done -- shall I inherit life age-during?'  19 And Jesus said to him, 'Why me dost thou call good? no one is good, except One -- God;  20 the commands thou hast known: Thou mayest not commit adultery, Thou mayest do no murder, Thou mayest not steal, Thou mayest not bear false witness, Honour thy father and thy mother.'  21 And he said, 'All these I did keep from my youth;'  22 and having heard these things, Jesus said to him, 'Yet one thing to thee is lacking; all things -- as many as thou hast -- sell, and distribute to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven, and come, be following me;'  23 and he, having heard these things, became very sorrowful, for he was exceeding rich.  24 And Jesus having seen him become very sorrowful, said, 'How hardly shall those having riches enter into the reign of God!  25 for it is easier for a camel through the eye of a needle to enter, than for a rich man into the reign of God to enter.'  26 And those who heard, said, 'And who is able to be saved?'  27 and he said, 'The things impossible with men are possible with God.'  28 And Peter said, 'Lo, we left all, and did follow thee;'  29 and he said to them, 'Verily I say to you, that there is not one who left house, or parents, or brothers, or wife, or children, for the sake of the reign of God,  30 who may not receive back manifold more in this time, and in the coming age, life age-during.'

'Again, having gone forth about the sixth and the ninth hour, he did in like manner.  6 And about the eleventh hour, having gone forth, he found others standing idle, and saith to them, Why here have ye stood all the day idle?  7 they say to him, Because no one did hire us; he saith to them, Go ye -- ye also -- to the vineyard, and whatever may be righteous ye shall receive.  8 'And evening having come, the lord of the vineyard saith to his steward, Call the workmen, and pay them the reward, having begun from the last -- unto the first.  9 And they of about the eleventh hour having come, did receive each a denary.  10 'And the first having come, did suppose that they shall receive more, and they received, they also, each a denary,  11 and having received it, they were murmuring against the householder, saying,  12 that These, the last, wrought one hour, and thou didst make them equal to us, who were bearing the burden of the day -- and the heat.  13 'And he answering said to one of them, Comrade, I do no unrighteousness to thee; for a denary didst not thou agree with me?  14 take that which is thine, and go; and I will to give to this, the last, also as to thee;  15 is it not lawful to me to do what I will in mine own? is thine eye evil because I am good?  16 So the last shall be first, and the first last, for many are called, and few chosen.'

    Luk 19:47 :  And he was teaching daily in the temple, but ...  Joh 12:20-50 :  20 And there were certain Greeks out of those coming up that they may worship in the feast,  21 these then came near to Philip, who is from Bethsaida of Galilee, and were asking him, saying, 'Sir, we wish to see Jesus;'  22 Philip cometh and telleth Andrew, and again Andrew and Philip tell Jesus.  23 And Jesus responded to them, saying, 'The hour hath come that the Son of Man may be glorified;  24 verily, verily, I say to you, if the grain of the wheat, having fallen to the earth, may not die, itself remaineth alone; and if it may die, it doth bear much fruit;  25 he who is loving his life shall lose it, and he who is hating his life in this world -- to life age-during shall keep it;  26 if any one may minister to me, let him follow me, and where I am, there also my ministrant shall be; and if any one may minister to me -- honour him will the Father.  27 'Now hath my soul been troubled, and what? shall I say -- Father, save me from this hour? -- but because of this I came to this hour;  28 Father, glorify Thy name.' There came, therefore, a voice out of the heaven, 'I both glorified, and again I will glorify it;'  29 the multitude, therefore, having stood and heard, were saying that there hath been thunder; others said, 'A messenger hath spoken to him.'  30 Jesus answered and said, 'Not because of me hath this voice come, but because of you;  31 now is a judgment of this world, now shall the ruler of this world be cast forth;  32 and I, if I may be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto myself.'  33 And this he said signifying by what death he was about to die;  34 the multitude answered him, 'We heard out of the law that the Christ doth remain -- to the age; and how dost thou say, That it behoveth the Son of Man to be lifted up? who is this -- the Son of Man?'  35 Jesus, therefore, said to them, 'Yet a little time is the light with you; walk while ye have the light, that darkness may not overtake you; and he who is walking in the darkness hath not known where he goeth;  36 while ye have the light, believe in the light, that sons of light ye may become.' These things spake Jesus, and having gone away, he was hid from them,  37 yet he having done so many signs before them, they were not believing in him,  38 that the word of Isaiah the prophet might be fulfilled, which he said, 'Lord, who gave credence to our report? and the arm of the Lord -- to whom was it revealed?'  39 Because of this they were not able to believe, that again Isaiah said,  40 'He hath blinded their eyes, and hardened their heart, that they might not see with the eyes, and understand with the heart, and turn back, and I might heal them;'  41 these things said Isaiah, when he saw his glory, and spake of him.  42 Still, however, also out of the rulers did many believe in him, but because of the Pharisees they were not confessing, that they might not be put out of the synagogue,  43 for they loved the glory of men more than the glory of God.  44 And Jesus cried and said, 'He who is believing in me, doth not believe in me, but in Him who sent me;  45 and he who is beholding me, doth behold Him who sent me;  46 I a light to the world have come, that every one who is believing in me -- in the darkness may not remain;  47 and if any one may hear my sayings, and not believe, I -- I do not judge him, for I came not that I might judge the world, but that I might save the world.  48 'He who is rejecting me, and not receiving my sayings, hath one who is judging him, the word that I spake, that will judge him in the last day,  49 because I spake not from myself, but the Father who sent me, He did give me a command, what I may say, and what I may speak,  50 and I have known that His command is life age-during; what, therefore, I speak, according as the Father hath said to me, so I speak.'

Mat 21:33-46 :  33 'Hear ye another simile: There was a certain man, a householder, who planted a vineyard, and did put a hedge round it, and digged in it a wine-press, and built a tower, and gave it out to husbandmen, and went abroad.  34 'And when the season of the fruits came nigh, he sent his servants unto the husbandmen, to receive the fruits of it,  35 and the husbandmen having taken his servants, one they scourged, and one they killed, and one they stoned.  36 'Again he sent other servants more than the first, and they did to them in the same manner.  37 'And at last he sent unto them his son, saying, They will reverence my son;  38 and the husbandmen having seen the son, said among themselves, This is the heir, come, we may kill him, and may possess his inheritance;  39 and having taken him, they cast him out of the vineyard, and killed him;  40 whenever therefore the lord of the vineyard may come, what will he do to these husbandmen?'  41 They say to him, 'Evil men -- he will evilly destroy them, and the vineyard will give out to other husbandmen, who will give back to him the fruits in their seasons.'  42 Jesus saith to them, 'Did ye never read in the Writings, A stone that the builders disallowed, it became head of a corner; from the Lord hath this come to pass, and it is wonderful in our eyes.  43 'Because of this I say to you, that the reign of God shall be taken from you, and given to a nation bringing forth its fruit;  44 and he who is falling on this stone shall be broken, and on whomsoever it may fall it will crush him to pieces.'  45 And the chief priests and the Pharisees having heard his similes, knew that of them he speaketh,  46 and seeking to lay hold on him, they feared the multitudes, seeing they were holding him as a prophet.  Mar 12:1-12 :  1 And he began to speak to them in similes: 'A man planted a vineyard, and put a hedge around, and digged an under-winevat, and built a tower, and gave it out to husbandmen, and went abroad;  2 and he sent unto the husbandmen at the due time a servant, that from the husbandmen he may receive from the fruit of the vineyard,  3 and they, having taken him, did severely beat him, and did send him away empty.  4 'And again he sent unto them another servant, and at that one having cast stones, they wounded him in the head, and sent away -- dishonoured.  5 'And again he sent another, and that one they killed; and many others, some beating, and some killing.  6 'Having yet therefore one son -- his beloved -- he sent also him unto them last, saying -- They will reverence my son;  7 and those husbandmen said among themselves -- This is the heir, come, we may kill him, and ours shall be the inheritance;  8 and having taken him, they did kill, and cast him forth without the vineyard.  9 'What therefore shall the lord of the vineyard do? he will come and destroy the husbandmen, and will give the vineyard to others.  10 And this Writing did ye not read: A stone that the builders rejected, it did become the head of a corner:  11 from the Lord was this, and it is wonderful in our eyes.'  12 And they were seeking to lay hold on him, and they feared the multitude, for they knew that against them he spake the simile, and having left him, they went away;  Luk 20:9-19 :  9 And he began to speak unto the people this simile: 'A certain man planted a vineyard, and gave it out to husbandmen, and went abroad for a long time,  10 and at the season he sent unto the husbandmen a servant, that from the fruit of the vineyard they may give to him, but the husbandmen having beat him, did send him away empty.  11 'And he added to send another servant, and they that one also having beaten and dishonoured, did send away empty;  12 and he added to send a third, and this one also, having wounded, they did cast out.  13 'And the owner of the vineyard said, What shall I do? I will send my son -- the beloved, perhaps having seen this one, they will do reverence;  14 and having seen him, the husbandmen reasoned among themselves, saying, This is the heir; come, we may kill him, that the inheritance may become ours;  15 and having cast him outside of the vineyard, they killed him; what, then, shall the owner of the vineyard do to them?  16 He will come, and destroy these husbandmen, and will give the vineyard to others.'

God is not a God of dead men, but of living.'  33 And having heard, the multitudes were astonished at his teaching;  34 and the Pharisees, having heard that he did silence the Sadducees, were gathered together unto him;  Mar 12:18-27 :  18 And the Sadducees come unto him, who say there is not a rising again, and they questioned him, saying,  19 'Teacher, Moses wrote to us, that if any one's brother may die, and may leave a wife, and may leave no children, that his brother may take his wife, and raise up seed to his brother.  20 'There were then seven brothers, and the first took a wife, and dying, he left no seed;  21 and the second took her, and died, neither left he seed, and the third in like manner,  22 and the seven took her, and left no seed, last of all died also the woman;  23 in the rising again, then, whenever they may rise, of which of them shall she be wife -- for the seven had her as wife?'  24 And Jesus answering said to them, 'Do ye not because of this go astray, not knowing the Writings, nor the power of God?  25 for when they may rise out of the dead, they neither marry nor are they given in marriage, but are as messengers who are in the heavens.  26 'And concerning the dead, that they rise: have ye not read in the Book of Moses (at The Bush), how God spake to him, saying, I am the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob;  27 he is not the God of dead men, but a God of living men; ye then go greatly astray.'  Luk 20:27-38 :  27 And certain of the Sadducees, who are denying that there is a rising again, having come near, questioned him,  28 saying, 'Teacher, Moses wrote to us, If any one's brother may die, having a wife, and he may die childless -- that his brother may take the wife, and may raise up seed to his brother.  29 'There were, then, seven brothers, and the first having taken a wife, died childless,  30 and the second took the wife, and he died childless,  31 and the third took her, and in like manner also the seven -- they left not children, and they died;  32 and last of all died also the woman:  33 in the rising again, then, of which of them doth she become wife? -- for the seven had her as wife.'  34 And Jesus answering said to them, 'The sons of this age do marry and are given in marriage,  35 but those accounted worthy to obtain that age, and the rising again that is out of the dead, neither marry, nor are they given in marriage;  36 for neither are they able to die any more -- for they are like messengers -- and they are sons of God, being sons of the rising again.  37 'And that the dead are raised, even Moses shewed at the Bush, since he doth call the Lord, the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob;  38 and He is not a God of dead men, but of living, for all live to Him.'

    Luk 21:5-36 :  5 And certain saying about the temple, that with goodly stones and devoted things it hath been adorned, he said,  6 'These things that ye behold -- days will come, in which there shall not be left a stone upon a stone, that shall not be thrown down.'  7 And they questioned him, saying, 'Teacher, when, then, shall these things be? and what is the sign when these things may be about to happen?'  8 And he said, 'See -- ye may not be led astray, for many shall come in my name, saying -- I am he, and the time hath come nigh; go not on then after them;  9 and when ye may hear of wars and uprisings, be not terrified, for it behoveth these things to happen first, but the end is not immediately.'  10 Then said he to them, 'Nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom,  11 great shakings also in every place, and famines, and pestilences, there shall be; fearful things also, and great signs from heaven there shall be;  12 and before all these, they shall lay on you their hands, and persecute, delivering up to synagogues and prisons, being brought before kings and governors for my name's sake;  13 and it shall become to you for a testimony.  14 'Settle, then, to your hearts, not to meditate beforehand to reply,  15 for I will give to you a mouth and wisdom that all your opposers shall not be able to refute or resist.  16 'And ye shall be delivered up also by parents, and brothers, and kindred, and friends, and they shall put of you to death;  17 and ye shall be hated by all because of my name --  18 and a hair out of your head shall not perish;  19 in your patience possess ye your souls.  20 'And when ye may see Jerusalem surrounded by encampments, then know that come nigh did her desolation;  21 then those in Judea, let them flee to the mountains; and those in her midst, let them depart out; and those in the countries, let them not come in to her;  22 because these are days of vengeance, to fulfil all things that have been written.  23 'And wo to those with child, and to those giving suck, in those days; for there shall be great distress on the land, and wrath on this people;  24 and they shall fall by the mouth of the sword, and shall be led captive to all the nations, and Jerusalem shall be trodden down by nations, till the times of nations be fulfilled.  25 'And there shall be signs in sun, and moon, and stars, and on the land is distress of nations with perplexity, sea and billow roaring;  26 men fainting at heart from fear, and expectation of the things coming on the world, for the powers of the heavens shall be shaken.  27 'And then they shall see the Son of Man, coming in a cloud, with power and much glory;  28 and these things beginning to happen bend yourselves back, and lift up your heads, because your redemption doth draw nigh.'  29 And he spake a simile to them: 'See the fig-tree, and all the trees,  30 when they may now cast forth, having seen, of yourselves ye know that now is the summer nigh;  31 so also ye, when ye may see these things happening, ye know that near is the reign of God;  32 verily I say to you -- This generation may not pass away till all may have come to pass;  33 the heaven and the earth shall pass away, but my words may not pass away.  34 'And take heed to yourselves, lest your hearts may be weighed down with surfeiting, and drunkenness, and anxieties of life, and suddenly that day may come on you,  35 for as a snare it shall come on all those dwelling on the face of all the land,  36 watch ye, then, in every season, praying that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that are about to come to pass, and to stand before the Son of Man.'

Mat 24 :  1 And having gone forth, Jesus departed from the temple, and his disciples came near to show him the buildings of the temple,  2 and Jesus said to them, 'Do ye not see all these? verily I say to you, There may not be left here a stone upon a stone, that shall not be thrown down.'  3 And when he is sitting on the mount of the Olives, the disciples came near to him by himself, saying, 'Tell us, when shall these be? and what is the sign of thy presence, and of the full end of the age?'  4 And Jesus answering said to them, 'Take heed that no one may lead you astray,  5 for many shall come in my name, saying, I am the Christ, and they shall lead many astray,  6 and ye shall begin to hear of wars, and reports of wars; see, be not troubled, for it behoveth all these to come to pass, but the end is not yet.  7 'For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom, and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places;  8 and all these are the beginning of sorrows;  9 then they shall deliver you up to tribulation, and shall kill you, and ye shall be hated by all the nations because of my name;  10 and then shall many be stumbled, and they shall deliver up one another, and shall hate one another.  11 'And many false prophets shall arise, and shall lead many astray;  12 and because of the abounding of the lawlessness, the love of the many shall become cold;  13 but he who did endure to the end, he shall be saved;  14 and this good news of the reign shall be proclaimed in all the world, for a testimony to all the nations; and then shall the end arrive.  15 'Whenever, therefore, ye may see the abomination of the desolation, that was spoken of through Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place (whoever is reading let him observe)  16 then those in Judea -- let them flee to the mounts;  17 he on the house-top -- let him not come down to take up any thing out of his house;  18 and he in the field -- let him not turn back to take his garments.  19 'And wo to those with child, and to those giving suck in those days;  20 and pray ye that your flight may not be in winter, nor on a sabbath;  21 for there shall be then great tribulation, such as was not from the beginning of the world till now, no, nor may be.  22 And if those days were not shortened, no flesh would have been saved; but because of the chosen, shall those days be shortened.  23 'Then if any one may say to you, Lo, here is the Christ! or here! ye may not believe;  24 for there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and they shall give great signs and wonders, so as to lead astray, if possible, also the chosen.  25 Lo, I did tell you beforehand.  26 'If therefore they may say to you, Lo, in the wilderness he is, ye may not go forth; lo, in the inner chambers, ye may not believe;  27 for as the lightning doth come forth from the east, and doth appear unto the west, so shall be also the presence of the Son of Man;  28 for wherever the carcase may be, there shall the eagles be gathered together.  29 'And immediately after the tribulation of those days, the sun shall be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from the heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken;  30 and then shall appear the sign of the Son of Man in the heaven; and then shall all the tribes of the earth smite the breast, and they shall see the Son of Man coming upon the clouds of the heaven, with power and much glory;  31 and he shall send his messengers with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his chosen from the four winds, from the ends of the heavens unto the ends thereof.  32 'And from the fig-tree learn ye the simile: When already its branch may have become tender, and the leaves it may put forth, ye know that summer is nigh,  33 so also ye, when ye may see all these, ye know that it is nigh -- at the doors.  34 Verily I say to you, this generation may not pass away till all these may come to pass.  35 The heaven and the earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.  36 'And concerning that day and the hour no one hath known -- not even the messengers of the heavens -- except my Father only;  37 and as the days of Noah -- so shall be also the presence of the Son of Man;  38 for as they were, in the days before the flood, eating, and drinking, marrying, and giving in marriage, till the day Noah entered into the ark,  39 and they did not know till the flood came and took all away; so shall be also the presence of the Son of Man.  40 Then two men shall be in the field, the one is received, and the one is left;  41 two women shall be grinding in the mill, one is received, and one is left.  42 'Watch ye therefore, because ye have not known in what hour your Lord doth come;  43 and this know, that if the master of the house had known in what watch the thief doth come, he had watched, and not suffered his house to be broken through;  44 because of this also ye, become ye ready, because in what hour ye do not think, the Son of Man doth come.  45 'Who, then, is the servant, faithful and wise, whom his lord did set over his household, to give them the nourishment in season?  46 Happy that servant, whom his lord, having come, shall find doing so;  47 verily I say to you, that over all his substance he will set him.  48 'And, if that evil servant may say in his heart, My Lord doth delay to come,  49 and may begin to beat the fellow-servants, and to eat and to drink with the drunken,  50 the lord of that servant will arrive in a day when he doth not expect, and in an hour of which he doth not know,  51 and will cut him off, and his portion with the hypocrites will appoint; there shall be the weeping and the gnashing of the teeth.  Mar 13 :  1 And as he is going forth out of the temple, one of his disciples saith to him, 'Teacher, see! what stones! and what buildings!'  2 and Jesus answering said to him, 'Seest thou these great buildings? there may not be left a stone upon a stone, that may not be thrown down.'  3 And as he is sitting at the mount of the Olives, over-against the temple, Peter, and James, and John, and Andrew, were questioning him by himself,  4 'Tell us when these things shall be? and what is the sign when all these may be about to be fulfilled?'  5 And Jesus answering them, began to say, 'Take heed lest any one may lead you astray,  6 for many shall come in my name, saying -- I am he, and many they shall lead astray;  7 and when ye may hear of wars and reports of wars, be not troubled, for these behove to be, but the end is not yet;  8 for nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom, and there shall be earthquakes in divers places, and there shall be famines and troubles; beginnings of sorrows are these.  9 'And take ye heed to yourselves, for they shall deliver you up to sanhedrims, and to synagogues, ye shall be beaten, and before governors and kings ye shall be set for my sake, for a testimony to them;  10 and to all the nations it behoveth first that the good news be proclaimed.  11 'And when they may lead you, delivering up, be not anxious beforehand what ye may speak, nor premeditate, but whatever may be given to you in that hour, that speak ye, for it is not ye who are speaking, but the Holy Spirit.  12 'And brother shall deliver up brother to death, and father child, and children shall rise up against parents, and shall put them to death,  13 and ye shall be hated by all because of my name, but he who hath endured to the end -- he shall be saved.  14 'And when ye may see the abomination of the desolation, that was spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing where it ought not, (whoever is reading let him understand), then those in Judea, let them flee to the mountains;  15 and he upon the house-top, let him not come down to the house, nor come in to take anything out of his house;  16 and he who is in the field, let him not turn to the things behind, to take up his garment.  17 'And wo to those with child, and to those giving suck, in those days;  18 and pray ye that your flight may not be in winter,  19 for those days shall be tribulation, such as hath not been from the beginning of the creation that God created, till now, and may not be;  20 and if the Lord did not shorten the days, no flesh had been saved; but because of the chosen, whom He did choose to Himself, He did shorten the days.  21 'And then, if any may say to you, Lo, here is the Christ, or, Lo, there, ye may not believe;  22 for there shall rise false Christs and false prophets, and they shall give signs and wonders, to seduce, if possible, also the chosen;  23 and ye, take heed; lo, I have foretold you all things.  24 'But in those days, after that tribulation, the sun shall be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light,  25 and the stars of the heaven shall be falling, and the powers that are in the heavens shall be shaken.  26 'And then they shall see the Son of Man coming in clouds with much power and glory,  27 and then he shall send his messengers, and gather together his chosen from the four winds, from the end of the earth unto the end of heaven.  28 'And from the fig-tree learn ye the simile: when the branch may already become tender, and may put forth the leaves, ye know that nigh is the summer;  29 so ye, also, when these ye may see coming to pass, ye know that it is nigh, at the doors.  30 Verily I say to you, that this generation may not pass away till all these things may come to pass;  31 the heaven and the earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.  32 'And concerning that day and the hour no one hath known -- not even the messengers who are in the heaven, not even the Son -- except the Father.  33 Take heed, watch and pray, for ye have not known when the time is;  34 as a man who is gone abroad, having left his house, and given to his servants the authority, and to each one his work, did command also the porter that he may watch;  35 watch ye, therefore, for ye have not known when the lord of the house doth come, at even, or at midnight, or at cock-crowing, or at the morning;  36 lest, having come suddenly, he may find you sleeping;  37 and what I say to you, I say to all, Watch.'

Mat 25 :  1 'Then shall the reign of the heavens be likened to ten virgins, who, having taken their lamps, went forth to meet the bridegroom;  2 and five of them were prudent, and five foolish;  3 they who were foolish having taken their lamps, did not take with themselves oil;  4 and the prudent took oil in their vessels, with their lamps.  5 'And the bridegroom tarrying, they all nodded and were sleeping,  6 and in the middle of the night a cry was made, Lo, the bridegroom doth come; go ye forth to meet him.  7 'Then rose all those virgins, and trimmed their lamps,  8 and the foolish said to the prudent, Give us of your oil, because our lamps are going out;  9 and the prudent answered, saying -- Lest there may not be sufficient for us and you, go ye rather unto those selling, and buy for yourselves.  10 'And while they are going away to buy, the bridegroom came, and those ready went in with him to the marriage-feasts, and the door was shut;  11 and afterwards come also do the rest of the virgins, saying, Sir, sir, open to us;  12 and he answering said, Verily I say to you, I have not known you.  13 'Watch therefore, for ye have not known the day nor the hour in which the Son of Man doth come.  14 'For -- as a man going abroad did call his own servants, and did deliver to them his substance,  15 and to one he gave five talents, and to another two, and to another one, to each according to his several ability, went abroad immediately.  16 'And he who did receive the five talents, having gone, wrought with them, and made other five talents;  17 in like manner also he who received the two, he gained, also he, other two;  18 and he who did receive the one, having gone away, digged in the earth, and hid his lord's money.  19 'And after a long time cometh the lord of those servants, and taketh reckoning with them;  20 and he who did receive the five talents having come, brought other five talents, saying, 'Sir, five talents thou didst deliver to me; lo, other five talents did I gain besides them.  21 'And his lord said to him, Well done, servant, good and faithful, over a few things thou wast faithful, over many things I will set thee; enter into the joy of thy lord.  22 'And he who also did receive the two talents having come, said, Sir, two talents thou didst deliver to me; lo, other two talents I did gain besides them.  23 'His lord said to him, Well done, servant, good and faithful, over a few things thou wast faithful, over many things I will set thee; enter into the joy of thy lord.  24 'And he also who hath received the one talent having come, said, Sir, I knew thee, that thou art a hard man, reaping where thou didst not sow, and gathering from whence thou didst not scatter;  25 and having been afraid, having gone away, I hid thy talent in the earth; lo, thou hast thine own!  26 'And his lord answering said to him, Evil servant, and slothful, thou hadst known that I reap where I did not sow, and I gather whence I did not scatter!  27 it behoved thee then to put my money to the money-lenders, and having come I had received mine own with increase.  28 'Take therefore from him the talent, and give to him having the ten talents,  29 for to every one having shall be given, and he shall have overabundance, and from him who is not having, even that which he hath shall be taken from him;  30 and the unprofitable servant cast ye forth to the outer darkness; there shall be the weeping and the gnashing of the teeth.  31 'And whenever the Son of Man may come in his glory, and all the holy messengers with him, then he shall sit upon a throne of his glory;  32 and gathered together before him shall be all the nations, and he shall separate them from one another, as the shepherd doth separate the sheep from the goats,  33 and he shall set the sheep indeed on his right hand, and the goats on the left.  34 'Then shall the king say to those on his right hand, Come ye, the blessed of my Father, inherit the reign that hath been prepared for you from the foundation of the world;  35 for I did hunger, and ye gave me to eat; I did thirst, and ye gave me to drink; I was a stranger, and ye received me;  36 naked, and ye put around me; I was infirm, and ye looked after me; in prison I was, and ye came unto me.  37 'Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when did we see thee hungering, and we nourished? or thirsting, and we gave to drink?  38 and when did we see thee a stranger, and we received? or naked, and we put around?  39 and when did we see thee infirm, or in prison, and we came unto thee?  40 'And the king answering, shall say to them, Verily I say to you, Inasmuch as ye did it to one of these my brethren -- the least -- to me ye did it.  41 Then shall he say also to those on the left hand, Go ye from me, the cursed, to the fire, the age-during, that hath been prepared for the Devil and his messengers;  42 for I did hunger, and ye gave me not to eat; I did thirst, and ye gave me not to drink;  43 a stranger I was, and ye did not receive me; naked, and ye put not around me; infirm, and in prison, and ye did not look after me.  44 'Then shall they answer, they also, saying, Lord, when did we see thee hungering, or thirsting, or a stranger, or naked, or infirm, or in prison, and we did not minister to thee?  45 'Then shall he answer them, saying, Verily I say to you, Inasmuch as ye did it not to one of these, the least, ye did it not to me.  46 And these shall go away to punishment age-during, but the righteous to life age-during.'

Jesus answered him, 'If I may not wash thee, thou hast no part with me;'  9 Simon Peter saith to him, 'Sir, not my feet only, but also the hands and the head.'  10 Jesus saith to him, 'He who hath been bathed hath no need save to wash his feet, but he is clean altogether; and ye are clean, but not all;'  11 for he knew him who is delivering him up; because of this he said, 'Ye are not all clean.'  12 When, therefore, he washed their feet, and took his garments, having reclined (at meat) again, he said to them, 'Do ye know what I have done to you?  13 ye call me, The Teacher and The Lord, and ye say well, for I am;  14 if then I did wash your feet -- the Lord and the Teacher -- ye also ought to wash one another's feet.  15 'For an example I gave to you, that, according as I did to you, ye also may do;  16 verily, verily, I say to you, a servant is not greater than his lord, nor an apostle greater than he who sent him;  17 if these things ye have known, happy are ye, if ye may do them;  18 not concerning you all do I speak; I have known whom I chose for myself; but that the Writing may be fulfilled: He who is eating the bread with me, did lift up against me his heel.  19 'From this time I tell you, before its coming to pass, that, when it may come to pass, ye may believe that I am he;  20 verily, verily, I say to you, he who is receiving whomsoever I may send, doth receive me; and he who is receiving me, doth receive Him who sent me.'

Mat 26:21-25 :  21 and while they are eating, he said, 'Verily I say to you, that one of you shall deliver me up.'  22 And being grieved exceedingly, they began to say to him, each of them, 'Is it I, Sir?'  23 And he answering said, 'He who did dip with me the hand in the dish, he will deliver me up;  24 the Son of Man doth indeed go, as it hath been written concerning him, but wo to that man through whom the Son of Man is delivered up! good it were for him if that man had not been born.'  25 And Judas -- he who delivered him up -- answering said, 'Is it I, Rabbi?' He saith to him, 'Thou hast said.'  Mar 14:18-21 :  18 and as they are reclining, and eating, Jesus said, 'Verily I say to you -- one of you, who is eating with me -- shall deliver me up.'  19 And they began to be sorrowful, and to say to him, one by one, 'Is it I?' and another, 'Is it I?'  20 And he answering said to them, 'One of the twelve who is dipping with me in the dish;  21 the Son of Man doth indeed go, as it hath been written concerning him, but wo to that man through whom the Son of Man is delivered up; good were it to him if that man had not been born.'    Joh 13:21-30 :  21 These things having said, Jesus was troubled in the spirit, and did testify, and said, 'Verily, verily, I say to you, that one of you will deliver me up;'  22 the disciples were looking, therefore, one at another, doubting concerning whom he speaketh.  23 And there was one of his disciples reclining (at meat) in the bosom of Jesus, whom Jesus was loving;  24 Simon Peter, then, doth beckon to this one, to inquire who he may be concerning whom he speaketh,  25 and that one having leant back on the breast of Jesus, respondeth to him, 'Sir, who is it?'  26 Jesus answereth, 'That one it is to whom I, having dipped the morsel, shall give it;' and having dipped the morsel, he giveth it to Judas of Simon, Iscariot.  27 And after the morsel, then the Adversary entered into that one, Jesus, therefore, saith to him, 'What thou dost -- do quickly;'  28 and none of those reclining at meat knew for what intent he said this to him,  29 for certain were thinking, since Judas had the bag, that Jesus saith to him, 'Buy what we have need of for the feast;' or that he may give something to the poor;  30 having received, therefore, the morsel, that one immediately went forth, and it was night.

Mat 26:36-46 :  36 Then come with them doth Jesus to a place called Gethsemane, and he saith to the disciples, 'Sit ye here, till having gone away, I shall pray yonder.'  37 And having taken Peter, and the two sons of Zebedee, he began to be sorrowful, and to be very heavy;  38 then saith he to them, 'Exceedingly sorrowful is my soul -- unto death; abide ye here, and watch with me.'  39 And having gone forward a little, he fell on his face, praying, and saying, 'My Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me; nevertheless, not as I will, but as Thou.'  40 And he cometh unto the disciples, and findeth them sleeping, and he saith to Peter, 'So! ye were not able one hour to watch with me!  41 watch, and pray, that ye may not enter into temptation: the spirit indeed is forward, but the flesh weak.'  42 Again, a second time, having gone away, he prayed, saying, 'My Father, if this cup cannot pass away from me except I drink it, Thy will be done;'  43 and having come, he findeth them again sleeping, for their eyes were heavy.  44 And having left them, having gone away again, he prayed a third time, saying the same word;  45 then cometh he unto his disciples, and saith to them, 'Sleep on henceforth, and rest! lo, the hour hath come nigh, and the Son of Man is delivered up to the hands of sinners.  46 Rise, let us go; lo, he hath come nigh who is delivering me up.'  Mar 14:32-42 :  32 And they come to a spot, the name of which is Gethsemane, and he saith to his disciples, 'Sit ye here till I may pray;'  33 and he taketh Peter, and James, and John with him, and began to be amazed, and to be very heavy,  34 and he saith to them, 'Exceeding sorrowful is my soul -- to death; remain here, and watch.'  35 And having gone forward a little, he fell upon the earth, and was praying, that, if it be possible the hour may pass from him,  36 and he said, 'Abba, Father; all things are possible to Thee; make this cup pass from me; but, not what I will, but what Thou.'  37 And he cometh, and findeth them sleeping, and saith to Peter, 'Simon, thou dost sleep! thou wast not able to watch one hour!  38 Watch ye and pray, that ye may not enter into temptation; the spirit indeed is forward, but the flesh weak.'  39 And again having gone away, he prayed, the same word saying;  40 and having returned, he found them again sleeping, for their eyes were heavy, and they had not known what they might answer him.  41 And he cometh the third time, and saith to them, 'Sleep on henceforth, and rest -- it is over; the hour did come; lo, the Son of Man is delivered up to the hands of the sinful;  42 rise, we may go, lo, he who is delivering me up hath come nigh.'  Luk 22:40-46 :  40 and having come to the place, he said to them, 'Pray ye not to enter into temptation.'  41 And he was withdrawn from them, as it were a stone's cast, and having fallen on the knees he was praying,  42 saying, 'Father, if Thou be counselling to make this cup pass from me --; but, not my will, but Thine be done.' --  43 And there appeared to him a messenger from heaven strengthening him;  44 and having been in agony, he was more earnestly praying, and his sweat became, as it were, great drops of blood falling upon the ground.  45 And having risen up from the prayer, having come unto the disciples, he found them sleeping from the sorrow,  46 and he said to them, 'Why do ye sleep? having risen, pray that ye may not enter into temptation.'

Mat 26:47-56 :  47 And while he is yet speaking, lo, Judas, one of the twelve did come, and with him a great multitude, with swords and sticks, from the chief priests and elders of the people.  48 And he who did deliver him up did give them a sign, saying, 'Whomsoever I will kiss, it is he: lay hold on him;'  49 and immediately, having come to Jesus, he said, 'Hail, Rabbi,' and kissed him;  50 and Jesus said to him, 'Comrade, for what art thou present?' Then having come near, they laid hands on Jesus, and took hold on him.  51 And lo, one of those with Jesus, having stretched forth the hand, drew his sword, and having struck the servant of the chief priest, he took off his ear.  52 Then saith Jesus to him, 'Turn back thy sword to its place; for all who did take the sword, by the sword shall perish;  53 dost thou think that I am not able now to call upon my Father, and He will place beside me more than twelve legions of messengers?  54 how then may the Writings be fulfilled, that thus it behoveth to happen?'  55 In that hour said Jesus to the multitudes, 'As against a robber ye did come forth, with swords and sticks, to take me! daily with you I was sitting teaching in the temple, and ye did not lay hold on me;  56 but all this hath come to pass, that the Writings of the prophets may be fulfilled;' then all the disciples, having left him, fled.  Mar 14:43-50 :  43 And immediately -- while he is yet speaking -- cometh near Judas, one of the twelve, and with him a great multitude, with swords and sticks, from the chief priests, and the scribes, and the elders;  44 and he who is delivering him up had given a token to them, saying, 'Whomsoever I shall kiss, he it is, lay hold on him, and lead him away safely,'  45 and having come, immediately, having gone near him, he saith, 'Rabbi, Rabbi,' and kissed him.  46 And they laid on him their hands, and kept hold on him;  47 and a certain one of those standing by, having drawn the sword, struck the servant of the chief priest, and took off his ear.  48 And Jesus answering said to them, 'As against a robber ye came out, with swords and sticks, to take me!  49 daily I was with you in the temple teaching, and ye did not lay hold on me -- but that the Writings may be fulfilled.'  50 And having left him they all fled;  Luk 22:47-53 :  47 And while he is speaking, lo, a multitude, and he who is called Judas, one of the twelve, was coming before them, and he came nigh to Jesus to kiss him,  48 and Jesus said to him, 'Judas, with a kiss the Son of Man dost thou deliver up?'  49 And those about him, having seen what was about to be, said to him, 'Sir, shall we smite with a sword?'  50 And a certain one of them smote the servant of the chief priest, and took off his right ear,  51 and Jesus answering said, 'Suffer ye thus far,' and having touched his ear, he healed him.  52 And Jesus said to those having come upon him -- chief priests, and magistrates of the temple, and elders -- 'As upon a robber have ye come forth, with swords and sticks?  53 while daily I was with you in the temple, ye did stretch forth no hands against me; but this is your hour and the power of the darkness.'  Joh 18:2-11 :  2 and Judas also, who delivered him up, had known the place, because many times did Jesus assemble there with his disciples.  3 Judas, therefore, having taken the band and officers out of the chief priests and Pharisees, doth come thither with torches and lamps, and weapons;  4 Jesus, therefore, knowing all things that are coming upon him, having gone forth, said to them, 'Whom do ye seek?'  5 they answered him, 'Jesus the Nazarene;' Jesus saith to them, 'I am he;' -- and Judas who delivered him up was standing with them; --  6 when, therefore, he said to them -- 'I am he,' they went away backward, and fell to the ground.  7 Again, therefore, he questioned them, 'Whom do ye seek?' and they said, 'Jesus the Nazarene;'  8 Jesus answered, 'I said to you that I am he; if, then, me ye seek, suffer these to go away;'  9 that the word might be fulfilled that he said -- 'Those whom Thou hast given to me, I did not lose of them even one.'  10 Simon Peter, therefore, having a sword, drew it, and struck the chief priest's servant, and cut off his right ear -- and the name of the servant was Malchus --  11 Jesus, therefore, said to Peter, 'Put the sword into the sheath; the cup that the Father hath given to me, may I not drink it?'

Mat 26:57-69 :  57 And those laying hold on Jesus led him away unto Caiaphas the chief priest, where the scribes and the elders were gathered together,  58 and Peter was following him afar off, unto the court of the chief priest, and having gone in within, he was sitting with the officers, to see the end.  59 And the chief priests, and the elders, and all the council, were seeking false witness against Jesus, that they might put him to death,  60 and they did not find; and many false witnesses having come near, they did not find; and at last two false witnesses having come near,  61 said, 'This one said, I am able to throw down the sanctuary of God, and after three days to build it.'  62 And the chief priest having stood up, said to him, 'Nothing thou dost answer! what do these witness against thee?  63 and Jesus was silent. And the chief priest answering said to him, 'I adjure thee, by the living God, that thou mayest say to us, if thou art the Christ -- the Son of God.'  64 Jesus saith to him, 'Thou hast said; nevertheless I say to you, hereafter ye shall see the Son of Man sitting on the right hand of the power, and coming upon the clouds, of the heaven.'  65 Then the chief priest rent his garments, saying, -- 'He hath spoken evil; what need have we yet of witnesses? lo, now ye heard his evil speaking;  66 what think ye?' and they answering said, 'He is worthy of death.'  67 Then did they spit in his face and buffet him, and others did slap,  68 saying, 'Declare to us, O Christ, who he is that struck thee?'  69 And Peter without was sitting in the court, and there came near to him a certain maid, saying, 'And thou wast with Jesus of Galilee!'  Mar 14:53-72 :  53 And they led away Jesus unto the chief priest, and come together to him do all the chief priests, and the elders, and the scribes;  54 and Peter afar off did follow him, to the inside of the hall of the chief priest, and he was sitting with the officers, and warming himself near the fire.  55 And the chief priests and all the sanhedrim were seeking against Jesus testimony -- to put him to death, and they were not finding,  56 for many were bearing false testimony against him, and their testimonies were not alike.  57 And certain having risen up, were bearing false testimony against him, saying --  58 'We heard him saying -- I will throw down this sanctuary made with hands, and by three days, another made without hands I will build;'  59 and neither so was their testimony alike.  60 And the chief priest, having risen up in the midst, questioned Jesus, saying, 'Thou dost not answer anything! what do these testify against thee?'  61 and he was keeping silent, and did not answer anything. Again the chief priest was questioning him, and saith to him, 'Art thou the Christ -- the Son of the Blessed?'  62 and Jesus said, 'I am; and ye shall see the Son of Man sitting on the right hand of the power, and coming with the clouds, of the heaven.'  63 And the chief priest, having rent his garments, saith, 'What need have we yet of witnesses?  64 Ye heard the evil speaking, what appeareth to you?' and they all condemned him to be worthy of death,  65 and certain began to spit on him, and to cover his face, and to buffet him, and to say to him, 'Prophesy;' and the officers were striking him with their palms.  66 And Peter being in the hall beneath, there doth come one of the maids of the chief priest,  67 and having seen Peter warming himself, having looked on him, she said, 'And thou wast with Jesus of Nazareth!'  68 and he denied, saying, 'I have not known him, neither do I understand what thou sayest;' and he went forth without to the porch, and a cock crew.  69 And the maid having seen him again, began to say to those standing near -- 'This is of them;'  70 and he was again denying. And after a little again, those standing near said to Peter, 'Truly thou art of them, for thou also art a Galilean, and thy speech is alike;'  71 and he began to anathematize, and to swear -- 'I have not known this man of whom ye speak;'  72 and a second time a cock crew, and Peter remembered the saying that Jesus said to him -- 'Before a cock crow twice, thou mayest deny me thrice;' and having thought thereon -- he was weeping.  Luk 22:54-71 :  54 And having taken him, they led and brought him to the house of the chief priest. And Peter was following afar off,  55 and they having kindled a fire in the midst of the court, and having sat down together, Peter was sitting in the midst of them,  56 and a certain maid having seen him sitting at the light, and having earnestly looked at him, she said, 'And this one was with him!'  57 and he disowned him, saying, 'Woman, I have not known him.'  58 And after a little, another having seen him, said, 'And thou art of them!' and Peter said, 'Man, I am not.'  59 And one hour, as it were, having intervened, a certain other was confidently affirming, saying, 'Of a truth this one also was with him, for he is also a Galilean;'  60 and Peter said, 'Man, I have not known what thou sayest;' and presently, while he is speaking, a cock crew.  61 And the Lord having turned did look on Peter, and Peter remembered the word of the Lord, how he said to him -- 'Before a cock shall crow, thou mayest disown me thrice;'  62 and Peter having gone without, wept bitterly.  63 And the men who were holding Jesus were mocking him, beating him;  64 and having blindfolded him, they were striking him on the face, and were questioning him, saying, 'Prophesy who he is who smote thee?'  65 and many other things, speaking evilly, they spake in regard to him.  66 And when it became day there was gathered together the eldership of the people, chief priests also, and scribes, and they led him up to their own sanhedrim,  67 saying, 'If thou be the Christ, tell us.' And he said to them, 'If I may tell you, ye will not believe;  68 and if I also question you, ye will not answer me or send me away;  69 henceforth, there shall be the Son of Man sitting on the right hand of the power of God.'  70 And they all said, 'Thou, then, art the Son of God?' and he said unto them, 'Ye say it, because I am;'  71 and they said, 'What need yet have we of testimony? for we ourselves did hear it from his mouth.'  Joh 18:12-27 :  12 The band, therefore, and the captain, and the officers of the Jews, took hold on Jesus, and bound him,  13 and they led him away to Annas first, for he was father-in-law of Caiaphas, who was chief priest of that year,  14 and Caiaphas was he who gave counsel to the Jews, that it is good for one man to perish for the people.  15 And following Jesus was Simon Peter, and the other disciple, and that disciple was known to the chief priest, and he entered with Jesus to the hall of the chief priest,  16 and Peter was standing at the door without, therefore went forth the other disciple who was known to the chief priest, and he spake to the female keeping the door, and he brought in Peter.  17 Then said the maid keeping the door to Peter, 'Art thou also of the disciples of this man?' he saith, 'I am not;'  18 and the servants and the officers were standing, having made a fire of coals, because it was cold, and they were warming themselves, and Peter was standing with them, and warming himself.  19 The chief priests, therefore, questioned Jesus concerning his disciples, and concerning his teaching;  20 Jesus answered him, 'I spake freely to the world, I did always teach in a synagogue, and in the temple, where the Jews do always come together; and in secret I spake nothing;  21 why me dost thou question? question those having heard what I spake to them; lo, these have known what I said.'  22 And he having said these things, one of the officers standing by did give Jesus a slap, saying, 'Thus dost thou answer the chief priest?'  23 Jesus answered him, 'If I spake ill, testify concerning the ill; and if well, why me dost thou smite?'  24 Annas then sent him bound to Caiaphas the chief priest.  25 And Simon Peter was standing and warming himself, they said then to him, 'Art thou also of his disciples?' he denied, and said, 'I am not.'  26 One of the servants of the chief priest, being kinsman of him whose ear Peter cut off, saith, 'Did not I see thee in the garden with him?'  27 again, therefore, Peter denied, and immediately a cock crew.

Mat 27:1-10 :  1 And morning having come, all the chief priests and the elders of the people took counsel against Jesus, so as to put him to death;  2 and having bound him, they did lead away, and delivered him up to Pontius Pilate, the governor.  3 Then Judas -- he who delivered him up -- having seen that he was condemned, having repented, brought back the thirty silverlings to the chief priests, and to the elders, saying,  4 'I did sin, having delivered up innocent blood;' and they said, 'What -- to us? thou shalt see!'  5 and having cast down the silverlings in the sanctuary, he departed, and having gone away, he did strangle himself.  6 And the chief priests having taken the silverlings, said, 'It is not lawful to put them to the treasury, seeing it is the price of blood;'  7 and having taken counsel, they bought with them the field of the potter, for the burial of strangers;  8 therefore was that field called, 'Field of blood,' unto this day.  9 Then was fulfilled that spoken through Jeremiah the prophet, saying, 'And I took the thirty silverlings, the price of him who hath been priced, whom they of the sons of Israel did price,  10 and gave them for the field of the potter, as the Lord did appoint to me.'  Mar 15:1 :  And immediately, in the morning, the chief priests having made a consultation, with the elders, and scribes, and the whole sanhedrim, having bound Jesus, did lead away, and delivered him to Pilate;  Luk 23:1-2 :  1 And having risen, the whole multitude of them did lead him to Pilate,  2 and began to accuse him, saying, 'This one we found perverting the nation, and forbidding to give tribute to Caesar, saying himself to be Christ a king.'  Joh 18:28-32 :  28 They led, therefore, Jesus from Caiaphas to the praetorium, and it was early, and they themselves did not enter into the praetorium, that they might not be defiled, but that they might eat the passover;  29 Pilate, therefore, went forth unto them, and said, 'What accusation do ye bring against this man?'  30 they answered and said to him, 'If he were not an evil doer, we had not delivered him to thee.'  31 Pilate, therefore, said to them, 'Take ye him -- ye -- and according to your law judge him;' the Jews, therefore, said to him, 'It is not lawful to us to put any one to death;'  32 that the word of Jesus might be fulfilled which he said, signifying by what death he was about to die.

Mat 27:11-25 :  11 And Jesus stood before the governor, and the governor did question him, saying, 'Art thou the king of the Jews!' And Jesus said to him, 'Thou sayest.'  12 And in his being accused by the chief priests and the elders, he did not answer any thing,  13 then saith Pilate to him, 'Dost thou not hear how many things they witness against thee?'  14 And he did not answer him, not even to one word, so that the governor did wonder greatly.  15 And at the feast the governor had been accustomed to release one to the multitude, a prisoner, whom they willed,  16 and they had then a noted prisoner, called Barabbas,  17 they therefore having been gathered together, Pilate said to them, 'Whom will ye I shall release to you? Barabbas or Jesus who is called Christ?'  18 for he had known that because of envy they had delivered him up.  19 And as he is sitting on the tribunal, his wife sent unto him, saying, 'Nothing -- to thee and to that righteous one, for many things did I suffer to-day in a dream because of him.'  20 And the chief priests and the elders did persuade the multitudes that they might ask for themselves Barabbas, and might destroy Jesus;  21 and the governor answering said to them, 'Which of the two will ye that I shall release to you?' And they said, 'Barabbas.'  22 Pilate saith to them, 'What then shall I do with Jesus who is called Christ?' They all say to him, 'Let be crucified!'  23 And the governor said, 'Why, what evil did he?' and they were crying out the more, saying, 'Let be crucified.'  24 And Pilate having seen that it profiteth nothing, but rather a tumult is made, having taken water, he did wash the hands before the multitude, saying, 'I am innocent from the blood of this righteous one; ye -- ye shall see;'  25 and all the people answering said, 'His blood is upon us, and upon our children!'  Mar 15:2-14 :  2 and Pilate questioned him, 'Art thou the king of the Jews?' and he answering said to him, 'Thou dost say it.'  3 And the chief priests were accusing him of many things, but he answered nothing.  4 And Pilate again questioned him, saying, 'Thou dost not answer anything! lo, how many things they do testify against thee!'  5 and Jesus did no more answer anything, so that Pilate wondered.  6 And at every feast he was releasing to them one prisoner, whomsoever they were asking;  7 and there was one named Barabbas, bound with those making insurrection with him, who had in the insurrection committed murder.  8 And the multitude having cried out, began to ask for themselves as he was always doing to them,  9 and Pilate answered them, saying, 'Will ye that I shall release to you the king of the Jews?'  10 for he knew that because of envy the chief priests had delivered him up;  11 and the chief priests did move the multitude, that he might rather release Barabbas to them.  12 And Pilate answering, again said to them, 'What, then, will ye that I shall do to him whom ye call king of the Jews?'  13 and they again cried out, 'Crucify him.'  14 And Pilate said to them, 'Why -- what evil did he?' and they cried out the more vehemently, 'Crucify him;'  Luk 23:3-23 :  3 And Pilate questioned him, saying, 'Thou art the king of the Jews?' and he answering him, said, 'Thou dost say it.'  4 And Pilate said unto the chief priests, and the multitude, 'I find no fault in this man;'  5 and they were the more urgent, saying -- 'He doth stir up the people, teaching throughout the whole of Judea -- having begun from Galilee -- unto this place.'  6 And Pilate having heard of Galilee, questioned if the man is a Galilean,  7 and having known that he is from the jurisdiction of Herod, he sent him back unto Herod, he being also in Jerusalem in those days.  8 And Herod having seen Jesus did rejoice exceedingly, for he was wishing for a long time to see him, because of hearing many things about him, and he was hoping some sign to see done by him,  9 and was questioning him in many words, and he answered him nothing.  10 And the chief priests and the scribes stood vehemently accusing him,  11 and Herod with his soldiers having set him at nought, and having mocked, having put around him gorgeous apparel, did send him back to Pilate,  12 and both Pilate and Herod became friends on that day with one another, for they were before at enmity between themselves.  13 And Pilate having called together the chief priests, and the rulers, and the people,  14 said unto them, 'Ye brought to me this man as perverting the people, and lo, I before you having examined, found in this man no fault in those things ye bring forward against him;  15 no, nor yet Herod, for I sent you back unto him, and lo, nothing worthy of death is having been done by him;  16 having chastised, therefore, I will release him,'  17 for it was necessary for him to release to them one at every feast,  18 and they cried out -- the whole multitude -- saying, 'Away with this one, and release to us Barabbas,'  19 who had been, because of a certain sedition made in the city, and murder, cast into prison.  20 Pilate again then -- wishing to release Jesus -- called to them,  21 but they were calling out, saying, 'Crucify, crucify him.'  22 And he a third time said unto them, 'Why, what evil did he? no cause of death did I find in him; having chastised him, then, I will release him.'  23 And they were pressing with loud voices asking him to be crucified, and their voices, and those of the chief priests, were prevailing,  Joh 18:33-40 :  33 Pilate, therefore, entered into the praetorium again, and called Jesus, and said to him, 'Thou art the King of the Jews?'  34 Jesus answered him, 'From thyself dost thou say this? or did others say it to thee about me?'  35 Pilate answered, 'Am I a Jew? thy nation, and the chief priests did deliver thee up to me; what didst thou?'  36 Jesus answered, 'My kingdom is not of this world; if my kingdom were of this world, my officers had struggled that I might not be delivered up to Jews; but now my kingdom is not from hence.'  37 Pilate, therefore, said to him, 'Art thou then a king?' Jesus answered, 'Thou dost say it; because a king I am, I for this have been born, and for this I have come to the world, that I may testify to the truth; every one who is of the truth, doth hear my voice.'  38 Pilate saith to him, 'What is truth?' and this having said, again he went forth unto the Jews, and saith to them, 'I do find no fault in him;  39 and ye have a custom that I shall release to you one in the passover; will ye, therefore, that I shall release to you the king of the Jews?'  40 therefore they all cried out again, saying, 'Not this one -- but Barabbas;' and Barabbas was a robber.

Mat 27:26-30 :  26 Then did he release to them Barabbas, and having scourged Jesus, he delivered him up that he may be crucified;  27 then the soldiers of the governor having taken Jesus to the Praetorium, did gather to him all the band;  28 and having unclothed him, they put around him a crimson cloak,  29 and having plaited him a crown out of thorns they put it on his head, and a reed in his right hand, and having kneeled before him, they were mocking him, saying, 'Hail, the king of the Jews.'  30 And having spit on him, they took the reed, and were smiting on his head;  Mar 15:15-19 :  15 and Pilate, wishing to content the multitude, released to them Barabbas, and delivered up Jesus -- having scourged him -- that he might be crucified.  16 And the soldiers led him away into the hall, which is Praetorium, and call together the whole band,  17 and clothe him with purple, and having plaited a crown of thorns, they put it on him,  18 and began to salute him, 'Hail, King of the Jews.'  19 And they were smiting him on the head with a reed, and were spitting on him, and having bent the knee, were bowing to him,  Luk 23:24-25 :  24 and Pilate gave judgment for their request being done,  25 and he released him who because of sedition and murder hath been cast into the prison, whom they were asking, and Jesus he gave up to their will.  Joh 19:1-13 :  1 Then, therefore, did Pilate take Jesus and scourge him,  2 and the soldiers having plaited a crown of thorns, did place it on his head, and a purple garment they put around him,  3 and said, 'Hail! the king of the Jews;' and they were giving him slaps.  4 Pilate, therefore, again went forth without, and saith to them, 'Lo, I do bring him to you without, that ye may know that in him I find no fault;'  5 Jesus, therefore, came forth without, bearing the thorny crown and the purple garment; and he saith to them, 'Lo, the man!'  6 When, therefore, the chief priests and the officers did see him, they cried out, saying, 'Crucify, crucify;' Pilate saith to them, 'Take ye him -- ye, and crucify; for I find no fault in him;'  7 the Jews answered him, 'We have a law, and according to our law he ought to die, for he made himself Son of God.'  8 When, therefore, Pilate heard this word, he was the more afraid,  9 and entered again to the praetorium, and saith to Jesus, 'Whence art thou?' and Jesus gave him no answer.  10 Pilate, therefore, saith to him, 'To me dost thou not speak? hast thou not known that I have authority to crucify thee, and I have authority to release thee?'  11 Jesus answered, 'Thou wouldst have no authority against me, if it were not having been given thee from above; because of this, he who is delivering me up to thee hath greater sin.'  12 From this time was Pilate seeking to release him, and the Jews were crying out, saying, 'If this one thou mayest release, thou art not a friend of Caesar; every one making himself a king, doth speak against Caesar.'  13 Pilate, therefore, having heard this word, brought Jesus without -- and he sat down upon the tribunal -- to a place called, 'Pavement,' and in Hebrew, Gabbatha;
