"And he would have gladly filled his stomach with the pods that the swine were eating, and no one was giving anything to him.

1343

For I do not want you to be unaware, brethren, that our fathers were all under the cloud and all passed through the sea;

1346

He began to teach again by the sea And such a very large crowd gathered to Him that He got into a boat in the sea and sat down; and the whole crowd was by the sea on the land.

1349

They asked him, and said to him, "Why then are you baptizing, if you are not the Christ, nor Elijah, nor the Prophet?"

1352

They went into Capernaum; and immediately on the Sabbath He entered the synagogue and began to teach.

1354

I saw no temple in it, for the Lord God the Almighty and the Lamb are its temple.

1356

And a leper came to Jesus, beseeching Him and falling on his knees before Him, and saying, "If You are willing, You can make me clean."

1360

have you not made distinctions among yourselves, and become judges with evil motives?

1361

The young man said to Him, "All these things I have kept; what am I still lacking?"

1363

But you, why do you judge your brother? Or you again, why do you regard your brother with contempt? For we will all stand before the judgment seat of God.

1364

"Therefore if you are presenting your offering at the altar, and there remember that your brother has something against you,

1365

"Is this not the fast which I choose, To loosen the bonds of wickedness, To undo the bands of the yoke, And to let the oppressed go free And break every yoke?

1366

Behold, My servant will prosper, He will be high and lifted up and greatly exalted.

1367

Now I desire to remind you, though you know all things once for all, that the Lord, after saving a people out of the land of Egypt, subsequently destroyed those who did not believe.

1368

For ground that drinks the rain which often falls on it and brings forth vegetation useful to those for whose sake it is also tilled, receives a blessing from God;

1374

Now we request you, brethren, with regard to the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our gathering together to Him,

1381

This persuasion did not come from Him who calls you.

1384

Now it came about in the days when the judges governed, that there was a famine in the land And a certain man of Bethlehem in Judah went to sojourn in the land of Moab with his wife and his two sons.

1386

Blessed is he who reads and those who hear the words of the prophecy, and heed the things which are written in it; for the time is near.

1387

And Jesus answered and said to them, "See to it that no one misleads you.

1389

Therefore the LORD raises against them adversaries from Rezin And spurs their enemies on,

1390

longing to see you, even as I recall your tears, so that I may be filled with joy.

1394

May it never be! For otherwise, how will God judge the world?

1396

SO THAT THE REST OF MANKIND MAY SEEK THE LORD, AND ALL THE GENTILES WHO ARE CALLED BY MY NAME,'

1397

What shall we say then? Is the Law sin? May it never be! On the contrary, I would not have come to know sin except through the Law; for I would not have known about coveting if the Law had not said, "YOU SHALL NOT COVET."

1399

"In that day I will raise up the fallen booth of David, And wall up its breaches; I will also raise up its ruins And rebuild it as in the days of old;

1400

"Everyone who divorces his wife and marries another commits adultery, and he who marries one who is divorced from a husband commits adultery.

1401

"Keep the charge of the LORD your God, to walk in His ways, to keep His statutes, His commandments, His ordinances, and His testimonies, according to what is written in the Law of Moses, that you may succeed in all that you do and wherever you turn,

1402

"You shall not covet your neighbor's house; you shall not covet your neighbor's wife or his male servant or his female servant or his ox or his donkey or anything that belongs to your neighbor."

1403

I heard another voice from heaven, saying, "Come out of her, my people, so that you will not participate in her sins and receive of her plagues;

1406

So the word of the Lord was growing mightily and prevailing.

1407

When Jesus had spoken these words, He went forth with His disciples over the ravine of the Kidron, where there was a garden, in which He entered with His disciples.

1408

But whatever things were gain to me, those things I have counted as loss for the sake of Christ.

1412

When Jesus saw him lying there, and knew that he had already been a long time in that condition, He said to him, "Do you wish to get well?"

1413

"If anyone is willing to do His will, he will know of the teaching, whether it is of God or whether I speak from Myself.

1414

I will give thanks to You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Wonderful are Your works, And my soul knows it very well.

1415

and you have forgotten the exhortation which is addressed to you as sons, "MY SON, DO NOT REGARD LIGHTLY THE DISCIPLINE OF THE LORD, NOR FAINT WHEN YOU ARE REPROVED BY HIM;

1419

And God blessed Noah and his sons and said to them, "Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth.

1420

"Behold, the days are coming," declares the LORD, "When I will raise up for David a righteous Branch; And He will reign as king and act wisely And do justice and righteousness in the land.

1422

namely, that God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself, not counting their trespasses against them, and He has committed to us the word of reconciliation.

1423

Here is wisdom Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for the number is that of a man; and his number is six hundred and sixty-six.

1424

For this reason we also constantly thank God that when you received the word of God which you heard from us, you accepted it not as the word of men, but for what it really is, the word of God, which also performs its work in you who believe.

1425

And when the days for their purification according to the law of Moses were completed, they brought Him up to Jerusalem to present Him to the Lord

1430

John answered and said to them all, "As for me, I baptize you with water; but One is coming who is mightier than I, and I am not fit to untie the thong of His sandals; He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire.

1432

"Blessed are those who have been persecuted for the sake of righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

1433

For the gospel has for this purpose been preached even to those who are dead, that though they are judged in the flesh as men, they may live in the spirit according to the will of God.

1436

But what I am doing I will continue to do, so that I may cut off opportunity from those who desire an opportunity to be regarded just as we are in the matter about which they are boasting.

1437

And Jesus was saying to them, "Truly I say to you, there are some of those who are standing here who will not taste death until they see the kingdom of God after it has come with power."

1438

That day Jesus went out of the house and was sitting by the sea.

1439

[And Philip said, "If you believe with all your heart, you may." And he answered and said, "I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God."]

1441

Jesus was going throughout all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues and proclaiming the gospel of the kingdom, and healing every kind of disease and every kind of sickness among the people.

1442

But when Christ appeared as a high priest of the good things to come, He entered through the greater and more perfect tabernacle, not made with hands, that is to say, not of this creation;

1443

Then He said to His disciples, "The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few.

1444

"But the tax collector, standing some distance away, was even unwilling to lift up his eyes to heaven, but was beating his breast, saying, 'God, be merciful to me, the sinner!'

1445

"I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven; and whatever you bind on earth shall have been bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth shall have been loosed in heaven."

1446

To the law and to the testimony! If they do not speak according to this word, it is because they have no dawn.

1447

And He said, "If you will give earnest heed to the voice of the LORD your God, and do what is right in His sight, and give ear to His commandments, and keep all His statutes, I will put none of the diseases on you which I have put on the Egyptians; for I, the LORD, am your healer."

1449

Beloved, do not imitate what is evil, but what is good The one who does good is of God; the one who does evil has not seen God.

1450

Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; Who substitute darkness for light and light for darkness; Who substitute bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter!

1451

Now when they had gone, behold, an angel of the Lord appeared to Joseph in a dream and said, "Get up! Take the Child and His mother and flee to Egypt, and remain there until I tell you; for Herod is going to search for the Child to destroy Him."

1454

But godliness actually is a means of great gain when accompanied by contentment.

1455

which is really not another; only there are some who are disturbing you and want to distort the gospel of Christ.

1457

They went out from us, but they were not really of us; for if they had been of us, they would have remained with us; but they went out, so that it would be shown that they all are not of us.

1460

The conclusion, when all has been heard, is: fear God and keep His commandments, because this applies to every person.

1462

Jesus said, "Have the people sit down." Now there was much grass in the place So the men sat down, in number about five thousand.

1463

"It was said, 'WHOEVER SENDS HIS WIFE AWAY, LET HIM GIVE HER A CERTIFICATE OF DIVORCE';

1464

Now there is in Jerusalem by the sheep gate a pool, which is called in Hebrew Bethesda, having five porticoes.

1466

For though I caused you sorrow by my letter, I do not regret it; though I did regret it--for I see that that letter caused you sorrow, though only for a while--

1467

"If men struggle with each other and strike a woman with child so that she gives birth prematurely, yet there is no injury, he shall surely be fined as the woman's husband may demand of him, and he shall pay as the judges decide.

1468

Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ by the will of God, and Timothy our brother,

1470

Now when He was in Jerusalem at the Passover, during the feast, many believed in His name, observing His signs which He was doing.

1471

"The kingdom of heaven is like a treasure hidden in the field, which a man found and hid again; and from joy over it he goes and sells all that he has and buys that field.

1472

The LORD God said to the serpent, "Because you have done this, Cursed are you more than all cattle, And more than every beast of the field; On your belly you will go, And dust you will eat All the days of your life;

1473

how will we escape if we neglect so great a salvation? After it was at the first spoken through the Lord, it was confirmed to us by those who heard,

1474

Immediately He called them; and they left their father Zebedee in the boat with the hired servants, and went away to follow Him.

1476

For this reason I, Paul, the prisoner of Christ Jesus for the sake of you Gentiles--

1477

And it will come about in the last days That the mountain of the house of the LORD Will be established as the chief of the mountains It will be raised above the hills, And the peoples will stream to it.

1478

There are six things which the LORD hates, Yes, seven which are an abomination to Him:

1479

until the day when He was taken up to heaven, after He had by the Holy Spirit given orders to the apostles whom He had chosen.

1480

And in the same way He took the cup after they had eaten, saying, "This cup which is poured out for you is the new covenant in My blood.

1481

Know this first of all, that in the last days mockers will come with their mocking, following after their own lusts,

1483

having canceled out the certificate of debt consisting of decrees against us, which was hostile to us; and He has taken it out of the way, having nailed it to the cross.

1487

Then they sailed to the country of the Gerasenes, which is opposite Galilee.

1488

All these died in faith, without receiving the promises, but having seen them and having welcomed them from a distance, and having confessed that they were strangers and exiles on the earth.

1489

Do you not know that when you present yourselves to someone as slaves for obedience, you are slaves of the one whom you obey, either of sin resulting in death, or of obedience resulting in righteousness?

1490

"May he kiss me with the kisses of his mouth! For your love is better than wine.

1494

Therefore, putting aside all filthiness and all that remains of wickedness, in humility receive the word implanted, which is able to save your souls.

1495

For as many as are of the works of the Law are under a curse; for it is written, "CURSED IS EVERYONE WHO DOES NOT ABIDE BY ALL THINGS WRITTEN IN THE BOOK OF THE LAW, TO PERFORM THEM."

1497

A great sign appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and on her head a crown of twelve stars;

1499

just as Sarah obeyed Abraham, calling him lord, and you have become her children if you do what is right without being frightened by any fear.

1501

Where can I go from Your Spirit? Or where can I flee from Your presence?

1502

Jesus was going through all the cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues and proclaiming the gospel of the kingdom, and healing every kind of disease and every kind of sickness.

1503

"Israel was holy to the LORD, The first of His harvest All who ate of it became guilty; Evil came upon them," declares the LORD.'"

1504

And immediately after they came out of the synagogue, they came into the house of Simon and Andrew, with James and John.

1505

If we say that we have fellowship with Him and yet walk in the darkness, we lie and do not practice the truth;

1511

"For six days work may be done, but on the seventh day you shall have a holy day, a sabbath of complete rest to the LORD; whoever does any work on it shall be put to death.

1512

"I have manifested Your name to the men whom You gave Me out of the world; they were Yours and You gave them to Me, and they have kept Your word.

1513

Azor was the father of Zadok, Zadok the father of Achim, and Achim the father of Eliud.

1518

Because of the surpassing greatness of the revelations, for this reason, to keep me from exalting myself, there was given me a thorn in the flesh, a messenger of Satan to torment me--to keep me from exalting myself!

1519

So the people stood at a distance, while Moses approached the thick cloud where God was.

1522

Now when they had traveled through Amphipolis and Apollonia, they came to Thessalonica, where there was a synagogue of the Jews.

1523

Now there were some Greeks among those who were going up to worship at the feast;

1524

Then he showed me a river of the water of life, clear as crystal, coming from the throne of God and of the Lamb,

1525

Jesus came down with them and stood on a level place; and there was a large crowd of His disciples, and a great throng of people from all Judea and Jerusalem and the coastal region of Tyre and Sidon,

1528

Then God said, "Let the waters teem with swarms of living creatures, and let birds fly above the earth in the open expanse of the heavens."

1529

Jesus came out from the temple and was going away when His disciples came up to point out the temple buildings to Him.

1530

nor will they say, 'Look, here it is!' or, 'There it is!' For behold, the kingdom of God is in your midst."

1531

Jesus spoke to them again in parables, saying,

1533

The word of God kept on spreading; and the number of the disciples continued to increase greatly in Jerusalem, and a great many of the priests were becoming obedient to the faith.

1534

"From the wilderness and this Lebanon, even as far as the great river, the river Euphrates, all the land of the Hittites, and as far as the Great Sea toward the setting of the sun will be your territory.

1535

Now to Him who is able to establish you according to my gospel and the preaching of Jesus Christ, according to the revelation of the mystery which has been kept secret for long ages past,

1536

which He brought about in Christ, when He raised Him from the dead and seated Him at His right hand in the heavenly places,

1537

"And when you are praying, do not use meaningless repetition as the Gentiles do, for they suppose that they will be heard for their many words.

1541

Therefore Pilate said to Him, "So You are a king?" Jesus answered, "You say correctly that I am a king For this I have been born, and for this I have come into the world, to testify to the truth Everyone who is of the truth hears My voice."

1544

For though by this time you ought to be teachers, you have need again for someone to teach you the elementary principles of the oracles of God, and you have come to need milk and not solid food.

1546

But to the one who does not work, but believes in Him who justifies the ungodly, his faith is credited as righteousness,

1547

Then the LORD answered Job out of the whirlwind and said,

1550

so that at the name of Jesus EVERY KNEE WILL BOW, of those who are in heaven and on earth and under the earth,

1551

they will pick up serpents, and if they drink any deadly poison, it will not hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover."

1552

Be gracious to me, O God, according to Your lovingkindness; According to the greatness of Your compassion blot out my transgressions.

1554

And coming in, he said to her, "Greetings, favored one! The Lord is with you."

1555

Now the two angels came to Sodom in the evening as Lot was sitting in the gate of Sodom When Lot saw them, he rose to meet them and bowed down with his face to the ground.

1556

But he must ask in faith without any doubting, for the one who doubts is like the surf of the sea, driven and tossed by the wind.

1558

By faith Abraham, when he was called, obeyed by going out to a place which he was to receive for an inheritance; and he went out, not knowing where he was going.

1561

But when the Pharisees heard that Jesus had silenced the Sadducees, they gathered themselves together.

1563

Then they returned to Jerusalem from the mount called Olivet, which is near Jerusalem, a Sabbath day's journey away.

1564

John answered them saying, "I baptize in water, but among you stands One whom you do not know.

1565

Now in the first year of Cyrus king of Persia, in order to fulfill the word of the LORD by the mouth of Jeremiah, the LORD stirred up the spirit of Cyrus king of Persia, so that he sent a proclamation throughout all his kingdom, and also put it in writing, saying:

1566

But you have come to Mount Zion and to the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to myriads of angels,

1567

which in other generations was not made known to the sons of men, as it has now been revealed to His holy apostles and prophets in the Spirit;

1568

When the hour had come, He reclined at the table, and the apostles with Him.

1569

Jesus went out from there and came into His hometown; and His disciples followed Him.

1570

Blow a trumpet in Zion, And sound an alarm on My holy mountain! Let all the inhabitants of the land tremble, For the day of the LORD is coming; Surely it is near,

1571

Therefore let us celebrate the feast, not with old leaven, nor with the leaven of malice and wickedness, but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth.

1572

let it be known to all of you and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ the Nazarene, whom you crucified, whom God raised from the dead--by this name this man stands here before you in good health.

1573

And I will make you a great nation, And I will bless you, And make your name great; And so you shall be a blessing;

1574

and Jacob's well was there. So Jesus, being wearied from His journey, was sitting thus by the well. It was about the sixth hour.

1579

"Truly I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, 'Be taken up and cast into the sea,' and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that what he says is going to happen, it will be granted him.

1582

Immediately they left their nets and followed Him.

1584

Then he said to me, "This is the word of the LORD to Zerubbabel saying, 'Not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit,' says the LORD of hosts.

1585

Jesus answered them, "Has it not been written in your Law, 'I SAID, YOU ARE GODS'?

1586

"And just as it happened in the days of Noah, so it will be also in the days of the Son of Man:

1587

While they were listening to these things, Jesus went on to tell a parable, because He was near Jerusalem, and they supposed that the kingdom of God was going to appear immediately.

1588

And according to Paul's custom, he went to them, and for three Sabbaths reasoned with them from the Scriptures,

1590

"Blessed are you when people insult you and persecute you, and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of Me.

1592

But when they persisted in asking Him, He straightened up, and said to them, "He who is without sin among you, let him be the first to throw a stone at her."

1593

I say then, God has not rejected His people, has He? May it never be! For I too am an Israelite, a descendant of Abraham, of the tribe of Benjamin.

1594

What then shall we say that Abraham, our forefather according to the flesh, has found?

1596

At the hands of the apostles many signs and wonders were taking place among the people; and they were all with one accord in Solomon's portico.

1599

The hand of the LORD was upon me, and He brought me out by the Spirit of the LORD and set me down in the middle of the valley; and it was full of bones.

1603

Actually, then, it is already a defeat for you, that you have lawsuits with one another. Why not rather be wronged? Why not rather be defrauded?

1605

nor to pay attention to myths and endless genealogies, which give rise to mere speculation rather than furthering the administration of God which is by faith.

1607

So He came to a city of Samaria called Sychar, near the parcel of ground that Jacob gave to his son Joseph;

1608

And just as they did not see fit to acknowledge God any longer, God gave them over to a depraved mind, to do those things which are not proper,

1609

Jesus answered and said to them, "This is the work of God, that you believe in Him whom He has sent."

1610

Some Pharisees came to Jesus, testing Him and asking, "Is it lawful for a man to divorce his wife for any reason at all?"

1612

The Nephilim were on the earth in those days, and also afterward, when the sons of God came in to the daughters of men, and they bore children to them. Those were the mighty men who were of old, men of renown.

1613

For when He received honor and glory from God the Father, such an utterance as this was made to Him by the Majestic Glory, "This is My beloved Son with whom I am well-pleased"--

1614

At that time Jesus went through the grainfields on the Sabbath, and His disciples became hungry and began to pick the heads of grain and eat.

1615

"Was no one found who returned to give glory to God, except this foreigner?"

1616

After these things I looked, and behold, a door standing open in heaven, and the first voice which I had heard, like the sound of a trumpet speaking with me, said, "Come up here, and I will show you what must take place after these things."

1617

Now they had been sent from the Pharisees.

1619

And not only this, but also we ourselves, having the first fruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting eagerly for our adoption as sons, the redemption of our body.

1620

Now there was a man named Simon, who formerly was practicing magic in the city and astonishing the people of Samaria, claiming to be someone great;

1623

"The LORD was very angry with your fathers.

1624

Therefore, take up the full armor of God, so that you will be able to resist in the evil day, and having done everything, to stand firm.

1629

"Therefore if You worship before me, it shall all be Yours."

1630

The angel said to her, "Do not be afraid, Mary; for you have found favor with God.

1632

"But put forth Your hand now and touch all that he has; he will surely curse You to Your face."

1633

But I do not allow a woman to teach or exercise authority over a man, but to remain quiet.

1634

Some Pharisees came up to Jesus, testing Him, and began to question Him whether it was lawful for a man to divorce a wife.

1637

So then those who were scattered because of the persecution that occurred in connection with Stephen made their way to Phoenicia and Cyprus and Antioch, speaking the word to no one except to Jews alone.

1638

"But this is the covenant which I will make with the house of Israel after those days," declares the LORD, "I will put My law within them and on their heart I will write it; and I will be their God, and they shall be My people.

1639

And He said to them, "Whoever divorces his wife and marries another woman commits adultery against her;

1641

"Truly, truly, I say to you, we speak of what we know and testify of what we have seen, and you do not accept our testimony.

1643

Paul came also to Derbe and to Lystra And a disciple was there, named Timothy, the son of a Jewish woman who was a believer, but his father was a Greek,

1644

On the next day the large crowd who had come to the feast, when they heard that Jesus was coming to Jerusalem,

1646

"Surely no one can refuse the water for these to be baptized who have received the Holy Spirit just as we did, can he?"

1648

in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.

1649

who through Him are believers in God, who raised Him from the dead and gave Him glory, so that your faith and hope are in God.

1653

and rescued him from all his afflictions, and granted him favor and wisdom in the sight of Pharaoh, king of Egypt, and he made him governor over Egypt and all his household.

1654

Now the Passover and Unleavened Bread were two days away; and the chief priests and the scribes were seeking how to seize Him by stealth and kill Him;

1655

And when eight days had passed, before His circumcision, His name was then called Jesus, the name given by the angel before He was conceived in the womb.

1656

But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, so that the surpassing greatness of the power will be of God and not from ourselves;
