Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and appointed you that ye should go forth and bear fruit, and that your fruit should be permanent: that so whatsoever ye shall ask the Father in my name, he may give it you.

And this she did for several days. Then Paul was wearied out, and turning, said to the spirit, I command thee in the name of Jesus Christ to come out of her. And he came out that very hour.

And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.

and that repentance and remission of sin should be preached in his name unto all nations, beginning from Jerusalem.

In that day ye shall ask in my name: and I do not say to you, I will entreat the Father for you:

but these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Messiah, the Son of God; and that believing ye might have life through his name.

Then said Peter, I have neither silver nor gold; but what I have, that I give thee: By the name of Jesus Christ the Nazarean, arise, and walk!

And through faith in his name hath his name restored this man to strength, whom ye behold and know: yea, the faith which is by him hath given him this perfect soundness in the sight of you all.

be it known unto you all, and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ the Nazarean, whom ye crucified, whom God raised from the dead, by him doth this man stand here sound in your presence.

giving thanks always for all things in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, to God even the Father;







And he was transformed before them; and his face shone as the sun, and his garments were white as the light.

his head and flowing locks white as a white fleece of wool, even as the snow; and his eyes as a flame of fire;

And he that sat was in appearance like a stone of jasper and sardine: and a rainbow encircled the throne, like in hue to an emerald.


Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and appointed you that ye should go forth and bear fruit, and that your fruit should be permanent: that so whatsoever ye shall ask the Father in my name, he may give it you.

And this she did for several days. Then Paul was wearied out, and turning, said to the spirit, I command thee in the name of Jesus Christ to come out of her. And he came out that very hour.

giving thanks always for all things in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, to God even the Father;


They shall make war against the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them: because he is Lord of lords, and King of kings and they that are with him, are called, and elect, and faithful.

Verily I say unto you, There are some of those standing here, who shall in no wise taste of death, until they see the Son of man coming in his kingdom.

that ye may eat and drink at my table in my kingdom, and be seated on thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel.

And he said to Jesus, Remember me, Lord, when thou comest in thy kingdom.

Jesus replied, My kingdom is not of this world: if my kingdom had been of this world, then would my servants have struggled hard, that I should not have been delivered up to the Jews: but now my kingdom is not from hence.

that to the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of beings celestial and terrestrial, and infernal;

But to the Son, "Thy throne, O God, is unto eternity; a sceptre of rectitude is the sceptre of thy kingdom.

And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying, The kingdoms of the world are become our Lord's, and his Messiah's, and he shall reign for ever and ever.


one Lord, one faith, one baptism,

Faithful is God, by whom ye have been called into communion with his Son Jesus Christ our Lord.

Let all the house of Israel therefore know assuredly, that God hath made him Lord and Messiah, even that very Jesus whom ye crucified.

Him hath God exalted at his right hand to be a Prince and a Saviour, to give repentance unto Israel, and remission of sins.

And he said, The Son of man is Lord also of the sabbath-day.

That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thy heart that God raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.

but to us there is one God, the Father; of whom are all things, and we for him; and one Lord Jesus Christ, by whom are all things, and we by him.

Wherefore I advertise you, that no man speaking by the Spirit of God, call Jesus anathema: and no man can say, Lord Jesus, but by the Holy Ghost.

Wherefore also he is able to save to the uttermost those who come unto God by him, seeing he ever liveth to make intercession for them.

Because this day there is born for you a Saviour, which is Messiah, the Lord, in the city of David.

For the Son of man is come to seek and to save that which was lost.

For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world by him might be saved.

It is a faithful saying, and worthy of all acceptation, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners, of whom I am the chief.

Him hath God exalted at his right hand to be a Prince and a Saviour, to give repentance unto Israel, and remission of sins.

From this man's seed according to the promise hath God raised up to Israel a Saviour, Jesus:

but is now made manifest by the appearing of our Saviour Jesus Christ, who hath abolished death, and brought to light life and immortality by the gospel:

And we have seen and bear testimony, that the Father sent the Son to be the Saviour of the world.


For Christ also suffered once for sins, the just for the unjust, that he might bring us to God, put to death indeed in the flesh, but raised to life by the Spirit:


Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, "Cursed is every one who is hanged on a tree:"

But we see Jesus for a little while made lower than angels, by the suffering of death, crowned with glory and honour, that, by the grace of God, he might taste of death for every one.

For he hath made him, who knew no sin, to be a sin offering for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in him.


so Christ having been once offered in sacrifice to bear the sins of men, will appear the second time without sin, to those who expect him, for their salvation.

who himself bore our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead unto sins, might live unto righteousness; "by whose stripes, [even] his, ye were healed."






And the Pharisees observing it, said to his disciples, How is this, that your Master eateth with publicans and sinners?

for he hath looked upon the lowly state of his maid-servant: for, lo! henceforth shall all generations pronounce me blessed.

he rises from supper, and lays aside his garments, and taking a towel, he wound it about himself.

And thus speaking, he shewed them his hands and his side. Then were the disciples glad when they saw the Lord.

Afterwards he spake to Thomas, Bring hither thy finger, and behold my hands; and take thy hand, and thrust into my side: and be not incredulous, but a believer.


Then the Pharisees went out, and held a consultation against him, how they might make away with him.

And they consulted together, how they might seize Jesus by guile, and put him to death.

NOW when the morning came, all the chief priests and the elders of the people took counsel against Jesus how they might put him to death.

But they were filled with madness, and talked earnestly to each other what they could do to Jesus.

And he continued daily teaching in the temple. Then the chief priests and the scribes sought to destroy him, with the heads of the people,

And he went and conversed with the chief priests and the captains, by what means he could betray him unto them.

And therefore did the Jews persecute Jesus, and sought to kill him, because he had done these things on the sabbath-day.

The chief priests and Pharisees therefore called the sanhedrim together, and said, What are we about? for this man is doing many miracles.

Then from that day they consulted together how they might kill him.


AND the Pharisees and the Sadducees came to him, and, to make trial of him, desired him to shew them a sign from heaven.

And the Pharisees came to him, tempting him, and saying, Is it lawful for a man to put away his wife for every cause?

Then went the Pharisees, and took counsel together how they might lay a snare to entrap him in his discourse.

Then the Pharisees came out, and began to question him, seeking of him a sign from heaven, tempting him.

And the Pharisees coming to him, put a question to him, Is it lawful for a husband to put away his wife? tempting him.

And they sent unto him certain of the Pharisees and of the Herodians, that they might entrap him in discourse.

laying snares for him, and seeking to catch hold of something from his mouth, that they might accuse him.

And watching him, they sent men they had suborned, who pretended that they were righteous persons, in order to lay hold of some word of his, that they might deliver him to the power and authority of the governor.

But this they said, trying to entrap him, that they might have ground of accusation against him. But Jesus stooping down, with his finger wrote on the ground.






AND it came to pass, as he was in a certain place praying, when he had done, one of his disciples said to him, Lord, teach us to pray, even as John also taught his disciples. And he said unto them, When ye pray say, Our Father, which art in heaven, hallowed be thy name: thy kingdom come: thy will be done as in heaven so upon earth. Give us our necessary food, day by day: read more.
and forgive us our sins, for we also forgive every one who is indebted to us. And bring us not into temptation; but deliver us from the wicked one. And he said unto them, Which of you shall have a friend, and he shall go to him at midnight, and say to him, Friend, lend me three loaves; for a friend of mine is come to me off a journey, and I have nothing to set before him. And he from within answering, shall say, Give me no farther trouble: my door is already locked, and my children are with me in bed; I am unable to rise and give thee. I tell you, though even he would not rise and give him because he is his friend; yet because of his importunity, roused up, he will give him as many as he needeth. And I say unto you, Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you. For every one who asketh, receiveth; and he that seeketh, findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened. For what father of you, if his son ask a loaf, will he give him a stone? or if a fish, will he for a fish give him a serpent? or if he ask also an egg, will he give him a scorpion? If ye then, evil as ye are, know how to give good gifts to your children; how much more shall your Father, who is in heaven, give his Holy Spirit to those who ask him?

THEN he spake also to them a parable, to shew that we ought to pray always, and not faint; saying, There was a certain judge in a particular city, having no fear of God, nor respect for man: and there was a certain widow in that city; and she came to him, saying, Do me justice against my adversary. read more.
And he would not for a long while: but after this he said, Though I fear not God, nor respect man; yet because this woman is so troublesome to me, I will do her justice, lest by her perpetual coming she stun me with her importunity, Then said the Lord, Hear what the unjust judge saith. And shall not God execute vengeance for his own elect, who cry out to him day and night, though he bear long with them? Yes, I tell you, that he will avenge them quickly. Nevertheless when the Son of man cometh, ah! shall he find faith on the earth?


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

And while he was yet speaking to the multitudes, behold, his mother and his brethren stood without, desiring to speak to him.

Then came his brethren and his mother, and standing without sent unto him, calling aloud for him.

After this he went down to Capernaum, he and his mother, and his brethren, and his disciples: and he continued there not many days.

Then said his disciples to him, Depart hence, and go into Judea, that thy disciples also may see thy works which thou doest.

For even his own brethren did not believe on him.

Have we not power to carry about with us a sister wife, as do also the other apostles, even the brethren of the Lord, and Cephas?

But I saw no other of the apostles except James, the Lord's brother.






AND it came to pass, as he was in a certain place praying, when he had done, one of his disciples said to him, Lord, teach us to pray, even as John also taught his disciples. And he said unto them, When ye pray say, Our Father, which art in heaven, hallowed be thy name: thy kingdom come: thy will be done as in heaven so upon earth.

And the Pharisees and scribes murmured, saying, This man entertains sinners, and eateth with them.

Why doth this man thus speak blasphemies? who can forgive sins but the one God?

And the Pharisees observing it, said to his disciples, How is this, that your Master eateth with publicans and sinners?

But when the Pharisees saw it, they said to him, Behold, thy disciples do a thing that it is not lawful to do on the sabbath.

Why do thy disciples transgress the tradition of the elders? for they wash not their hands when they eat bread?

And the scribes and the Pharisees seeing him eat with publicans and sinners, said to his disciples, How is it that he eateth and drinketh with publicans and sinners?

And seeing some of his disciples eating bread with hands unclean, that is, unwashed, they found fault.

And when they all saw it, they murmured, saying, That he is gone to lodge with a man, a notorious sinner.

Then the Jews murmured against him, because he said, I am the bread which came down from heaven.


And Jesus said to him. Verily I say unto thee, To-day thou shalt be with me in paradise.

If a man will be my servant, let him follow me; and where I am, there also shall my servant be: and if any man serve me, him will my Father honour.

And if I go and prepare you a place, I will come again, and receive you to myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.

Father, those whom thou hast given me, I will that where I am they may also be with me; that they may behold my glory, which thou gavest me: because thou hast loved me before the foundation of the world.

We are confident indeed, and with pleasure expect to go out from the body, and to dwell within with the Lord:

For I am in a strait between the two, having an earnest longing to be dissolved, and to be with Christ, for this is far, far better:

then we who are alive, who remain, shall be caught up together with them into the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air; and so shall we be ever with the Lord.



From that time Jesus began to shew his disciples, that he must go to Jerusalem, and suffer many things of the elders, and of the chief-priests, and of the scribes, and be put to death, and the third day rise again.

and shall deliver him to the Gentiles, to insult, and to scourge, and to crucify: and the third day he shall rise again.

But after I am risen, I will go before you into Galilee.

And as they were coming down from the mountain, he strictly charged them, that they should tell no man what they had seen, till after the Son of man should have arisen from the dead.

but after I am risen, I will go before you into Galilee.

Jesus answered and said to them, Pull down this temple, and in three days I will rear it up again.

Having however obtained help from God, unto this day, I stand witnessing both to small and great, saying nothing but what both the prophets and Moses said should come to pass: that the Messiah should suffer, [and] that he being the first who should rise from the dead, should display light to the people, and to the Gentiles.


worn down with vexation, because they taught the people, and preached by Jesus the resurrection of the dead.

But Philip, going down to a city of Samaria, preached Christ unto them.

Then Philip opening his mouth, and beginning from that scripture, preached to him Jesus.

And immediately he preached Christ in the synagogues, that he is the Son of God.

The word which he sent to the children of Israel, preaching peace by Jesus Christ, (he is Lord of all,) ye know:

opening them clearly, and laying it evidently down that the Messiah must suffer, and rise again from the dead; and that this man is the Messiah, even Jesus, whom I preach unto you.

but we preach Christ crucified, to the Jews indeed an offence, and to the Greeks folly;

For we preach not ourselves, but Christ Jesus the Lord; and ourselves your servants for Jesus' sake.


But now at the middle of the feast Jesus went up into the temple, and taught.

for he taught them as having authority, and not as the scribes.

And Jesus went about all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing every disease and every malady among the people.

and opening his mouth, he taught them, saying,

And Jesus, when he landed, saw a vast multitude, and was moved with companion towards them, for they were as sheep having no shepherd: and he began to teach them many things.

And he taught in their synagogues, being universally admired.

Then he went on board one of the vessels, which was Simon's, and desired him to put off a little from the land: and sitting down, he taught the multitudes out of the vessel.

this man came to Jesus in the night, and said to him, Rabbi, we know that thou art a teacher come from God: for no man can do these miracles which thou dost, unless God be with him.

But early in the morning he came again to the temple, and all the people came to him; and sitting down he taught them.


And when the apostles returned, they told him what they had done. And taking them, he withdrew privately into a desert place belonging to the city called Bethsaida.

And when he had sent away the multitude, he went up into a mountain apart to pray: and when evening came, he was there alone.

And departing thence, Jesus went to the sea-side of Galilee; and ascending a mountain, he sat down there.

THEN six days after, Jesus taketh Peter, and James, and John his brother, and bringeth them into an exceeding high mountain apart.

And Jesus going up to Jerusalem, took his twelve disciples aside on the road, and said to them;

And he said unto them, Come ye yourselves apart into a desert place, and repose a little while: for there were multitudes coming and going, so that they had not even time to eat.

And rising, he departed thence into the confines of Tyre and Sidon; and entering into a house, desired that no man should know it: yet he could not be hid.

And he withdrew from them about a stone's cast, and kneeling down, he prayed,


I am the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last.


Father, those whom thou hast given me, I will that where I am they may also be with me; that they may behold my glory, which thou gavest me: because thou hast loved me before the foundation of the world.

IN the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

Jesus said unto them, Before Abraham had a being, I Am.

And now, Father, do thou glorify me with thyself in the glory which I held with thee before the world was.

and he is before all, and by him all things subsist.

without father, without mother, without genealogy, having neither beginning of days nor end of life, but in exact resemblance with the Son of God, abideth a priest for ever.


John answered them, saying, I baptise with water: but in the midst of you hath stood a person, whom ye have not known;

Jesus saith to him, Am I all this while with you, and hast thou not known me, Philip? he that hath seen me hath seen the Father; and how sayest thou, Shew us the Father?

He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not.

Jesus answered and said to her, If thou hadst known the gift of God, and who he is that speaketh to thee, thou wouldest have requested him, and he would have given thee life-giving water.

Then said they to him, Where is thy father? Jesus answered, Ye neither know me, nor my Father: if ye had known me, ye would have known my Father also.

The man replied, and said to them, Now herein is something very surprising, that you know not whence he is, though he hath opened my eyes.

And these things will they do unto you, because they have not known the Father, nor me.

For they who dwell at Jerusalem, and their rulers, being ignorant of him, and the words of the prophets that are read every sabbath-day, by condemning him have fulfilled them.

Every one who abideth in him, doth not sin; every one who sinneth hath not seen him, nor known him.


Then Judas (not Iscariot) said to him, Lord, how is it that thou wilt manifest thyself to us, and not unto the world? Jesus answered and said to him, If any man love me, he will observe my word: and my Father will love him, and we will come to him, and make our abode with him.

If ye love me, keep my commandments. And I will ask the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever;

for the Father himself loveth you, because ye have loved me, and have believed that I came out from God.

Grace be with all those who love our Lord Jesus Christ in sincerity.

Model thy teaching according to the pattern of the sound discourses, which thou hast heard from me, in faith and love which is in Christ Jesus.

hearing of thy love and faith which thou hast towards the Lord Jesus, and unto all the saints;

whom though ye have not seen, ye love; on whom, though ye have not as yet gazed, yet believing, ye exult with joy unutterable and glorious:


And hath commanded us to proclaim to the people, and to bear our testimony that this is the person who is ordained of God the Judge of the living and the dead.

teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo! I am with you at all times even to the end of the world. Amen.

And this is his commandment, that we should believe in the name of his Son, Jesus Christ, and love one another, as he gave us commandment.

He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he is the person who loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him.

A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; even as I have loved you, that ye also love one another.

If ye love me, keep my commandments.

If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love; even as I have kept my Father's commandments, and as I abide in his love.

Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever things I command you.



And she brought forth a son, her first-born, and wrapped him in swaddling-clothes, and laid him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the inn.

For ye know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that for your sake he became poor though he was rich, that ye by his poverty should be made rich.

Then were crucified with him two robbers, one on his right hand, and the other on his left.

For I tell you, that what hath already been written must be fulfilled in me, namely, "He was numbered with the transgressors:" for the things also concerning me draw to their period.

in his humiliation his judgment was taken away: but his generation who can describe? for his life was taken away from the earth."

but emptied himself, assuming the form of a servant, made after the similitude of mortal men; and found in fashion as man, he humbled himself, becoming obedient to death, even to the death of the cross.


Is not this the carpenter, the son of Mary, the brother of James and Joses, and Judah and Simon? and are not his sisters here with us? And they were offended at him.

And blessed is he whosoever shall not be offended at me.

but we preach Christ crucified, to the Jews indeed an offence, and to the Greeks folly;


And they were offended at him. But Jesus said unto them, A prophet is not disrespected, except in his own country, and in his own family.

And why? Because they sought it not by faith, but as by the works of the law. For they stumbled against that stone of stumbling;

and a stone of stumbling, and rock of offence," to those who stumble at the word, disobedient; whereunto also they were appointed.


As Jesus was speaking these words, he was greatly agitated in spirit, and testified, and said, Verily, verily, I say unto you, that one of you shall betray me.


and looking up to heaven, he heaved a deep sigh, and saith unto him, Ephphatha! that is, Be opened.

And fetching a deep sigh from his very soul, he saith, Why seeketh this generation a sign? verily I tell you, no sign shall be given to this generation.

And as he drew near, beholding the city, he wept over it,

When Jesus then saw her weeping, and all the Jews who came with her lamenting, he groaned in spirit, and was himself greatly agitated:

Jesus wept.

Now is my soul troubled; and what shall I say? Father, save me from this hour: but for this cause came I unto this hour.


knowing this, that our old man hath been crucified with him, that the body of sin might be abolished, that we should no longer be slaves to sin.

I am crucified with Christ, yet I live; though no more I, but Christ liveth in me: and my present life in the flesh, is a life by faith in the Son of God, who hath loved me, and delivered up himself for me.

If then ye have been dead with Christ from the rudiments of the world, why, as though living in the world, are ye dogmatically taught,

As it is written, "That for thy sake we have been put to death the whole day long; we have been reckoned indeed as sheep for slaughter."

For we who are yet alive are continually delivered up to death for Jesus' sake, that the life also of Jesus may be made manifest in our mortal flesh.

It is a faithful saying: for if we be dead with him, we shall also live with him:


Then said Jesus unto them, A little while longer I am with you, and I am going to him that sent me.

Ye have heard that I told you, I am going away, though I am coming again to you. If ye loved me, ye would rejoice, because I said, I am going to the Father: because my Father is greater than I.

But now I am going away to him that sent me; and none of you asketh me, Whither art thou going?

And now no longer am I in this world, but these are in the world, and I am coming to thee. Holy Father! preserve them for thy name's sake whom thou hast given me, that they may be one, as we are.

My dear children, yet a little while I am with you. Ye shall seek me: as I said to the Jews, Whither I am going, ye cannot come; so say I now to you.

then of righteousness, because I am going to the Father, so ye see me no more;

A little while longer, and ye shall not see me: and again a little while, and ye shall see me, because I am going to the Father.

I came out from the Father, and am come into the world: again, I am leaving the world, and going to the Father.


These things have I spoken to you, that ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good courage; I have overcome the world.

And when Jesus saw her, he was moved with compassion for her, and said unto her, Weep not.

LET not your hearts be troubled: trust in God, and trust in me.

I will not leave you orphans: I am coming to you.

Then Jesus, turning about and beholding her, said, Be encouraged, daughter; thy faith hath saved thee. And the woman was cured from that hour.

But Jesus, instantly hearing the account given, said to the ruler of the synagogue, Fear not, only believe.

Now our Lord Jesus Christ himself, and our God, and Father, who hath loved us, and given us everlasting consolation, and good hope through grace,


I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night is coming, when no man can work.

Then at last he sent unto them his son, saying, They will reverence my son.

For I came down from heaven, not with a view to do my own will, but the will of him that sent me.

But I know him: for I am from him, and he hath sent me.

Then said Jesus unto them, If God was your Father, ye would have loved me: for I came out from God, and I am coming; neither indeed came I of myself, but he hath sent me.

do ye say of him, whom the Father hath sanctified, and sent into the world, Thou blasphemest because I said, I am the Son of God?

For the declarations which thou gavest to me I have delivered to them; and they have received them, and have known assuredly that I came out from thee, and they have believed that thou hast sent me.

that all may be one; as thou, Father, in me, and I in thee, that these also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me.


Ought not the Messiah to suffer these things, and to enter into his glory?

For I tell you, that what hath already been written must be fulfilled in me, namely, "He was numbered with the transgressors:" for the things also concerning me draw to their period.

And he began to teach them, that the Son of man must suffer many things, and be rejected by the elders, and chief priests, and scribes, and be slain, and after three days rise again.

saying, The Son of man must suffer many things, and be rejected by the elders, and chief priests, and scribes, and be put to death, and on the third day rise again.

But I have a baptism to be baptised with; and how am I distressed in spirit till it is finished!

saying, That the Son of man must be delivered up into the hands of sinful men, and be crucified, and the third day rise again.

and said to them, That thus it is written, and thus must the Messiah suffer, and rise again from the dead the third day

And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, in like manner must the Son of man be lifted up:

And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, in like manner must the Son of man be lifted up:


Wherefore God also hath transcendently exalted him, and bestowed on him a name which is above every name: that to the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of beings celestial and terrestrial, and infernal; and every tongue should confess that the Lord Jesus [is] Messiah, to the glory of God the Father.


And he hath upon his vesture and upon his thigh this name written, king of kings, and lord of lords.

made as much superior to the angels, as he hath inherited a more distinguished name than they.

And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS.

And his eyes were as a flame of fire, and upon his head were many diadems; and he hath a name inscribed which no man knoweth but himself.


"Tell the daughter of Sion, Lo! thy King cometh to thee, meek, and sitting on an ass, even on a foal the ass's colt."

NOW I Paul myself exhort you by the meekness and gentleness of Christ, who, when present, am indeed lowly among you, but being absent, am bold towards you.

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


Then saith Jesus unto him, Return thy sword into its sheath: for all who take the sword, shall perish by the sword.

who, when reviled, reviled not again; when he suffered, he used no menaces; but referred himself to him who judgeth righteously:


and from Jesus Christ, the faithful witness, and first-born from the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth: to him who loved us, and washed us from our sins by his blood,

I conjure thee in the presence of God, who giveth life to all things, and of Christ Jesus, who witnessed that noble confession before Pontius Pilate;

Then said Pilate unto him. Art thou not a king then? Jesus answered, Thou sayest that I am a king. For this end I was born, and for this I came into the world, that I should be a witness for the truth. Every one who is of the truth heareth my voice.


Verily, verity, I tell thee, That what we know we speak, and what we have seen we affirm; and ye receive not our testimony.

And what he hath seen and heard, that he testifieth; though no man receiveth his testimony.

Jesus answered and said to them, Though I do bear witness of myself, my witness is true: for I know whence I came, and whither I am going; but ye know not whence I come, nor whither I am going.


For a woman hearing of him, whose daughter had an unclean spirit, came and fell at his feet.

And lo! a leper came and worshipped him, saying, Lord, if thou wilt, thou canst make me clean.

As he was speaking these things to them, behold, there came a ruler, and prostrated himself before him, saying, My daughter hath just now died: but come and lay thine hand upon her, and she shall live.

Then she came, and worshiped him, saying, Lord, help me!

Then came to him the mother of Zebedee's children, with her sons, paying him obeisance, and petitioning a favour of him.

And, behold, there cometh to him one of the rulers of the synagogue, named Jairus; and seeing him, fell at his feet,

Then he said, Lord, I believe: and worshipped him.



For Moses truly said unto the fathers, "A prophet shall the Lord your God raise up unto you from among your brethren, like myself; him shall ye hear in all things whatsoever he shall speak to you.

For the declarations which thou gavest to me I have delivered to them; and they have received them, and have known assuredly that I came out from thee, and they have believed that thou hast sent me.

I have many things to speak and to decide concerning you: but he that sent me is true; and the things which I have heard from him I speak to the world.

Because I have not spoken of myself; but the Farther who has sent me, he gave me commandment, what I should say, and what I should speak.

Dost thou not believe that I am in the Father, and that the Father is in me? the words which I speak unto you I speak not of myself: but the Father, who dwelleth in me, he performeth these works.

He that loveth me not, doth not observe my sayings: and the word which ye are hearing is not mine, but of him that sent me.

And Jesus said to him. Verily I say unto thee, To-day thou shalt be with me in paradise.

And Jesus said, Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do. Then dividing his garments, they cast the lot.

Then saith he to the disciple, Behold thy mother! And from that hour the disciple took her unto his own home.

But about the ninth hour Jesus cried out with an exceeding loud cry, saying, Eli! Eli! lama, sabacthani? that is, My God! my God! why hast thou forsaken me?

After this, Jesus, conscious that all things were now finished, that the scripture might be fulfilled, saith, I thirst.

When therefore Jesus had received the vinegar, he said, It is finished: and inclining his head, he surrendered up his spirit.

And Jesus crying with a loud voice, said, Father, into thy hands I commit my spirit: and having said this, he expired.


And the king answering shall say to them, Verily I tell you, for as much as ye have done it to one of these my brethren, the very least of them, ye have done it unto me.

He that receiveth you receiveth me, and he that receiveth me receiveth him that sent me.

And whosoever shall receive one such little child in my name, receiveth me.

He that heareth you, heareth me; and he that despiseth you, despiseth me; and he that despiseth me, despiseth Him that sent me.

and falling on the ground, he heard a voice saying unto him, Saul, Saul, why persecutest thou me?

But when ye sin so against the brethren, and wound their weak conscience, ye sin against Christ.


who hath plucked us out from the dominion of darkness, and transferred us into the kingdom of the Son of his love:

"Behold, my servant, whom I have chosen, my beloved, in whom my soul delighteth: I will put my Spirit upon him, and he shall proclaim judgment for the heathen.

And while he was yet speaking, behold, a luminous cloud overshadowed them; and lo! a voice out of the cloud, saying, This is my beloved Son, in whom is my delight; hear him!

and a voice came from heaven, Thou art my beloved Son, in thee I am well pleased.

to the praise of the glory of his grace, whereby he hath made us acceptable in that beloved one;

So Christ also did not himself assume the glory to become high-priest, but he [gave it] who spake to him, "Thou art my Son; I have this day begotten thee."

And I saw heaven opened, and lo a white horse; and he that sat upon it, is called Faithful and True, and with righteousness doth he judge and make war.




And again, when he introduces the first-begotten into the world, he saith, "Let all the angels of God also worship him."

And they who were in the vessel, came and worshipped him, saying, Truly thou art the Son of God.

And as they were going to tell the disciples, then behold Jesus met them saying, Hail! And they came and held him by the feet, and worshipped him.

And coming into the house, they found the infant with Mary his mother, and falling prostrate, they paid their homage to him. And opening their treasures, they made their offerings to him, gold, and frankincense, and myrrh.

And they, after paying him their adorations, returned to Jerusalem with vast joy:

And when he had taken the book, the four living beings and the four and twenty presbyters prostrated themselves before the lamb, having each harps, and vases of gold, full of perfumes smoaking, which are the prayers of the saints.


Every one that denieth the Son, neither doth he hold the Father; but he that acknowledgeth the Son, holdeth the Father also.

But I tell you, Every one who shall confess me before men, him will the Son of man also confess before the angels of God:

That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thy heart that God raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.

Every one therefore who shall make confession of me before men, of him will I also make confession before my Father who is in heaven.

and every tongue should confess that the Lord Jesus [is] Messiah, to the glory of God the Father.

Whosoever shall confess that Jesus is the Son of God, God abideth in him, and he in God.


and to Jesus the mediator of the new testament, and to the blood of sprinkling, which speaketh better things than that of Abel.

For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus;

But now hath Christ obtained a more excellent ministry, inasmuch as he is the mediator of a better covenant, which hath been established on better promises.

And for this cause he is the mediator of the new testament, that, death being suffered for the redemption of transgressions committed against the first testament, they who are called might receive the promise of an eternal inheritance.

For Christ is not entered into the holies made with hands, the antitypes of the true; but into heaven itself, now to appear before the presence of God for us:

MY dear children, these things I write to you, that ye should not sin. And if any of us sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous:


And he is the head of the body, the church; he is the beginning, the first begotten from the dead, that he might be in all things pre-eminent.

and hath put all things under his feet, and hath appointed him head over all to the church,

but, speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, who is the head, even Christ:

For the husband is the head of the wife, as also Christ is the head of the church; and is himself the saviour of the body.

and not firmly attached to the head, from which the whole body, by joints and ligaments, harmoniously adjusted and closely compacted, increaseth with increase from God.


Know ye not that your bodies are the members of Christ? Taking then the members of Christ, shall I make them members of an harlot? God forbid.

for we are the members of his body, of his flesh, and of his bones.

Wherefore, my brethren, ye also have become dead to the law through the body of Christ; that ye might be for another, who was raised from the dead, that we might bring forth fruit for God.

For I am jealous over you with godly jealousy; for I have espoused you to one husband, to present you a chaste virgin to Christ.

Let that abide in you therefore which ye have heard from the beginning. If that abide in you which ye heard from the beginning, ye also shall abide in the Son and in the Father.


Hereafter shall the Son of man sit at the right hand of the power of God. Then said they all, Art thou then the Son of God? And he said unto them, Yourselves say that I am.

I and my Father are one.

If I do not the works of my Father, believe me not. But if I do, though ye believe not me, believe the works: that ye may know, and believe, that the Father is in me, and I in him.

And he that seeth me, seeth him that sent me.

If ye had known me, ye would have known my Father: and from henceforth ye know him and have seen him. Philip saith to him, Lord, shew us the Father, and it sufficeth us. Jesus saith to him, Am I all this while with you, and hast thou not known me, Philip? he that hath seen me hath seen the Father; and how sayest thou, Shew us the Father? read more.
Dost thou not believe that I am in the Father, and that the Father is in me? the words which I speak unto you I speak not of myself: but the Father, who dwelleth in me, he performeth these works.

All things whatsoever the Father hath are mine: therefore I said, that he shall take of mine, and shall shew it unto you.


for in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily;

And from his plenitude we all have received, even grace corresponding with [his] grace.

and hath put all things under his feet, and hath appointed him head over all to the church, which is his body, the fulness of him that filleth all in all.

until we all attain in the unity of the faith, and the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a state of complete manhood, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ:

For it hath pleased the Father that in him all fulness should dwell;


And with great power bore the apostles witness of the resurrection of the Lord Jesus: and great grace was upon them all.

And we are witnesses of all things which he did both in the region of the Jews, and in Jerusalem; whom they killed suspending him on a tree: him God raised up the third day, and ordained that he should be visibly manifested; not to all the people, but to witnesses chosen before of God, even to us, who did eat and drink with him after he was arisen from the dead.

definitively marked out as the Son of God by miracle, according to the spirit of holiness, by the resurrection of the dead:

him, by the destined counsel and foreknowledge of God delivered up, ye have seized, and by wicked hands have crucified and slain: whom God hath raised up, having loosed the pains of death: forasmuch as it was not possible that he should be held thereby.

But ye denied the Holy One and the Just, and besought that a man, a murderer, might as a favour be given unto you; but ye slew the Author of life, whom God raised from the dead: of which we are witnesses.

And Paul, according to his usual custom, went in to them, and for three sabbaths he reasoned with them from the scriptures, opening them clearly, and laying it evidently down that the Messiah must suffer, and rise again from the dead; and that this man is the Messiah, even Jesus, whom I preach unto you.


Then he poureth water into a bason, and began to wash the disciples' feet, and to wipe them with the towel with which he was begirt.


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

For ye know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that for your sake he became poor though he was rich, that ye by his poverty should be made rich.

and found in fashion as man, he humbled himself, becoming obedient to death, even to the death of the cross.


for by him were all things created, celestial and terrestrial, visible or invisible, whether thrones, or dominations, or principalities, or powers, all were created by him, and for him:

but to us there is one God, the Father; of whom are all things, and we for him; and one Lord Jesus Christ, by whom are all things, and we by him.

All things were made by him; and without him was not one thing made that was made.

and to make all men see what the communication of that mystery means, which was hid from the beginning in God, who created all things by Jesus Christ:

GOD, who spake to the fathers of old at various times, and in different manners by the prophets, in these last days hath spoken to us by a Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds;


And he said, Go into the city, unto such a man, and say unto him, The Master saith, My time is at hand: I will keep the passover with my disciples at thy house.

Then cometh he to his disciples, and saith unto them, Do ye still sleep on, and repose yourselves? lo! the hour is at hand, and the Son of man is betrayed into the hands of sinners.

Then they sought to apprehend him: but no man laid hands on him, because his hour was not yet come.

Then Jesus answered them, saying, The hour is come, that the Son of man should be glorified.

NOW before the feast of the passover, Jesus, knowing that his hour was come, that he should go out of this world to the Father, having loved his peculiar people that are in the world, he loved them to the end.

THESE things spake Jesus, and lifted up his eyes to heaven, and said, Father, the hour is come; glorify thy Son, that thy Son may glorify thee:


But the Pharisees said, By the prince of the devils doth he cast the devils out.

But the Pharisees hearing them, said, This fellow casteth not out devils, but by Beelzebub, the prince of the devils.

But some of them said, He casteth out devils by Beelzebub the prince of the devils.

And many other things, blaspheming, spake they against him.

Because they said, he hath an unclean spirit.

Do they not blaspheme that honourable name by which ye are called?


but to those who are called, whether Jews or Greeks, Christ the power of God, and the wisdom of God.

And the child grew, and became endued with great powers of spirit, filled with wisdom; and the grace of God was upon him.

And coming into his own country, taught them in their synagogues, so that they were exceedingly struck, and said, Whence hath this man this wisdom, and these miracles?


in whom are hid all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.


Now on the last day, the great day of the feast, Jesus stood up and spake aloud, saying, If any man thirst, let him come unto me and drink.

But about the ninth hour Jesus cried out with an exceeding loud cry, saying, Eli! Eli! lama, sabacthani? that is, My God! my God! why hast thou forsaken me?

And some fell on good ground, and shooting up, produced fruit an hundred fold. So saying, he cried, He that hath ears to hear, let him hear.

Then spake Jesus aloud as he was teaching in the temple, and said, Ye both know me, and ye know from whence I am: and I came not of myself, but he that sent me is true, whom ye know not.

Then Jesus cried and said, He that believeth on me, believeth not on me, but on him that sent me.

Then Jesus crying again with a loud voice gave up the ghost.


And while he was yet speaking, behold, a luminous cloud overshadowed them; and lo! a voice out of the cloud, saying, This is my beloved Son, in whom is my delight; hear him!

and lo! a voice from the heavens, saying, This is my Son, the beloved, in whom is my delight.

There is another who beareth witness of me, and I know that his witness is true which he witnesseth concerning me.

And the Father who sent me, himself hath borne witness concerning me. Ye have neither at any time heard his voice, nor seen his form.

I am a witness for myself, and the Father who sent me beareth witness of me.

If we receive the testimony of man, the testimony of God is stronger: for this is the testimony of God which he testified concerning his Son.


the Son of man is come eating and drinking, and they say, Behold, what a man! a glutton and a wine-bibber, a friend of publicans and sinners: though wisdom hath been justified by her children.

But the Pharisees said, By the prince of the devils doth he cast the devils out.

and began to accuse him, saying, We have found this fellow perverting the nation, and forbidding to pay tribute to Caesar; pretending that he himself is the King Messiah.

and they set up false witnesses, saying, This man doth not cease speaking blasphemous words against this holy place, and the law:

But others scoffing said, These men are brimful of sweet wine.

For we found this fellow a pest [to society], and exciting sedition among all the Jews throughout the whole world, and a ringleader of the sect of the Nazareans:




Now I tell you, That one greater than the temple is here.

The queen of the south shall rise up in the judgment against the men of this generation, and shall condemn them: for she came from the ends of the earth to hear the wisdom of Solomon, and, behold, a greater than Solomon is here.

Wherefore God also hath transcendently exalted him, and bestowed on him a name which is above every name: that to the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of beings celestial and terrestrial, and infernal;


BEING justified therefore by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ:


The word which he sent to the children of Israel, preaching peace by Jesus Christ, (he is Lord of all,) ye know:

For he is our peace, who hath made both one, and hath broken down the middle wall of separation,

and by him to reconcile all things to himself, making peace by the blood of his cross: by him, I say, whether they be things on earth, or things in the heavens.


And I John saw the holy city, the new Jerusalem, descending from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.

And Jesus said unto them, Can the children of the bridechamber weep, whilst the bridegroom is with them? but the days will come, when the bridegroom shall be taken away from them, and then will they fast.

THEN shall the kingdom of heaven be like to ten virgins, who taking their lamps, went forth to meet the bridegroom.

Then at midnight the cry came, Behold, the bridegroom is coming; go forth to meet him.

It is the bridegroom, who possesses the bride: and the friend of the bridegroom, standing by and hearing him, rejoiceth exceedingly at the bridegroom's voice: this my joy therefore is fulfilled.



And he said unto them, Wherefore did ye seek me? did you not know, that I must be occupied with my Father's affairs?

Then the disciples remembered that it was written, "The zeal of thine house hath eaten me up."

Jesus saith unto them, My meat is to do the will of him that sent me, and to finish his work.

I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night is coming, when no man can work.

respecting Jesus, who was of Nazareth, how God had anointed him with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were tyrannically oppressed of the devil; for God was with him.


Wherefore also it is contained in the scripture, "Behold, I lay in Sion a cornerstone, elect, precious, and the believer on him shall never be confounded."


Jesus saith unto them, Have ye not read in the Scriptures, "The stone, which the builders rejected; the same is become the head of the corner; this is done by the Lord, and it is wonderful in our eyes."

This is the stone which, though set at nought by you builders, is become the head of the corner.

built up on the foundation of apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone;


and from Jesus Christ, the faithful witness, and first-born from the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth: to him who loved us, and washed us from our sins by his blood,

They shall make war against the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them: because he is Lord of lords, and King of kings and they that are with him, are called, and elect, and faithful.

which in his own appointed times he will shew forth, who is the blessed and only Potentate, the King of kings, and Lord of lords;
