And they sang a new song, saying, You are worthy to take the book and to open its seals, for You were slain and have redeemed us to God by Your blood out of every kindred and tongue and people and nation.

who gave Himself for us that He might redeem us from all iniquity and purify to Himself a special people, zealous of good works.

being justified freely by His grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus;

But of Him you are in Christ Jesus, who of God is made to us wisdom and righteousness and sanctification and redemption;

in whom we have redemption through His blood, the remission of sins.

knowing that you were not redeemed with corruptible things, silver or gold, from your vain manner of life handed down from your fathers,


You have not chosen Me, but I have chosen you and ordained you that you should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain; that whatever you shall ask of the Father in My name, He may give it to you.

And she did this many days. But being distressed, and turning to the demonic spirit, Paul said, I command you in the name of Jesus Christ to come out of her! And it came out in that hour.

And whatever you may ask in My name, that I will do, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son.

and that repentance and remission of sins should be proclaimed in His name among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem.

At that day you will ask in My name; and I do not say to you that I will pray to the Father for you,

But these are written so that you might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that believing you might have life in His name.

But Peter said, Silver and gold have I none, but what I have I give you. In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, rise up and walk!

And His name, through faith in His name, has made this man strong, this one whom you see and know, His name made firm. And the faith which came through Him has given him this perfect soundness before you.

be it known to you all, and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom you crucified, whom God raised from the dead, in this name does this man stand before you whole.

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


I watched until the thrones were set in place, and the Ancient of Days sat, whose robe was white as snow, and the hair of His head like the pure wool. His throne was like flames of fire, and His wheels like burning fire.

You are the fairest of the sons of men; grace is poured into Your lips; therefore God has blessed You forever.

His mouth is most sweet; yes, He is altogether lovely. This is my Beloved, and this is my Friend, O daughters of Jerusalem.

Just as many were astonished at You (so much was the disfigurement from man, His appearance and His form from the sons of mankind);

For He comes up before Him as a tender plant, and as a root out of a dry ground; He has no form nor majesty that we should see Him, nor an appearance that we should desire Him.

And He was transfigured before them. And His face shone as the sun, and His clothing was white as the light.

His head and hair were white like wool, as white as snow. And His eyes were like a flame of fire.

And He who sat there looked like a jasper stone and a sardius. And a rainbow was around the throne, looking like an emerald.


You have not chosen Me, but I have chosen you and ordained you that you should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain; that whatever you shall ask of the Father in My name, He may give it to you.

These will make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb will overcome them. For He is Lord of lords and King of kings. And those with Him are the called and elect and faithful ones.

Truly I say to you, There are some standing here who shall not taste of death until they see the Son of Man coming in His kingdom.

that you may eat and drink at My table in My kingdom, and sit on thrones judging the twelve tribes of Israel.

And he said to Jesus, Lord, remember me when You come into Your kingdom.

Jesus answered, My kingdom is not of this world. If My kingdom were of this world, then My servants would fight so that I might not be delivered to the Jews. But now My kingdom is not from here.

that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of heavenly ones, and of earthly ones, and of ones under the earth;

But to the Son He says, "Your throne, O God, is forever and ever. A scepter of righteousness is the scepter of Your kingdom.

And the seventh angel sounded. And there were great voices in Heaven, saying, The kingdoms of this world have become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of His Christ. And He will reign forever and ever.


one Lord, one faith, one baptism,

God is faithful, by whom you were called to the fellowship of His Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.

Therefore let all the house of Israel know assuredly that God made this same Jesus, whom you crucified, both Lord and Christ.

This One God has exalted to be a Ruler and Savior to His right hand in order to give repentance and remission of sins to Israel.

And He said to them, The Son of Man is Lord also of the sabbath.

Because if you confess the Lord Jesus, and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you shall be saved.

but there is to us only one God, the Father, of whom are all things, and we in Him; and one Lord Jesus Christ, through whom are all things, and we by Him.

Therefore I make known to you that no one speaking by the Spirit of God says Jesus is a curse, and that no one can say that Jesus is Lord, but by the Holy Spirit.

Therefore He is able also to save to the uttermost those who come unto God by Him, since He ever lives to make intercession for them.

For to you is born today, in the city of David, a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.

For the Son of Man has come to seek and to save that which was lost.

For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but so that the world might be saved through Him.

Faithful is the Word and worthy of all acceptance, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners, of whom I am chief.

This One God has exalted to be a Ruler and Savior to His right hand in order to give repentance and remission of sins to Israel.

Of this man's seed God has raised to Israel, according to His promise, a Savior, Jesus;

But it is now having been manifested by the appearing of our Savior Jesus Christ, who has made death of no effect, bringing life and immortality to light through the gospel;

And we have seen and testify that the Father sent the Son to be the Savior of the world.


For Christ also once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that He might bring us to God, indeed being put to death in the flesh, but made alive in the Spirit;

For the zeal of Your house has eaten Me up; and the reproaches of those who reproached You have fallen on Me.

Christ redeemed us from the curse of the Law, being made a curse for us (for it is written, "Cursed is everyone having been hanged on a tree");

But we see Jesus, who was made a little lower than the angels for the suffering of death, crowned with glory and honor, that He by the grace of God should taste death for all.

For He has made Him who knew no sin, to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.

But He was wounded for our transgressions; He was bruised for our iniquities; the chastisement of our peace was on Him; and with His stripes we ourselves are healed.

so Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many. And to those who look for Him He shall appear the second time without sin to salvation.

He Himself bore our sins in His own body on the tree, that dying to sins, we might live to righteousness; by whose stripes you were healed.


For so says the high and lofty One who inhabits eternity; whose name is Holy; I dwell in the high and holy place, even with the contrite and humble spirit, to revive the spirit of the humble, and to revive the heart of the contrite ones.

who humbles Himself to behold the things in the heavens and in the earth!

Who remembered us in our low estate; for His mercy endures forever;

Though Jehovah is high, yet He has respect to the lowly; but the proud He knows afar off.

And when the Pharisees saw, they said to His disciples, Why does your master eat with tax-collectors and sinners?

For He looked on the humiliation of His slave woman. For, behold, from now on all generations shall count me blessed.

He rose up from supper and laid aside His garments. And He took a towel and girded Himself.

And when He had said this, He showed them His hands and His side. Then the disciples were glad when they saw the Lord.

Then He said to Thomas, Reach your finger here and behold My hands; and reach your hand here and thrust it into My side; and do not be unbelieving, but believing.


Then the Pharisees went out and held council against Him, as to how they might destroy Him.

And they consulted so that they might take Jesus by guile and kill Him.

And it becoming early morning, all the chief priests and elders of the people took counsel against Jesus to put Him to death.

And they were filled with madness, and talked with one another as to what they might do to Jesus.

And He taught in the temple daily. But the chief priests and the scribes and the chief of the people sought to destroy Him.

And going, he talked with the chief priests and captains, how he might betray Him to them.

And therefore the Jews persecuted Jesus and sought to kill Him, because He had done these things on the sabbath day.

Then the chief priests and Pharisees gathered a sanhedrin, and said, What can we do? For this man does many miracles.

Then from that day they took counsel together that they might kill Him.


The Pharisees and the Sadducees came to Him, tempting Him. And they asked Him that He would show them a sign from Heaven.

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

Then the Pharisees left and took counsel that they might entangle Him in words.

And the Pharisees came out and began to dispute with Him, seeking a sign from Heaven from Him, tempting Him.

And tempting Him, the Pharisees came to Him and asked Him, Is it lawful for a man to put away his wife?

And they sent certain of the Pharisees and of the Herodians to Him, to catch Him in His words.

lying in ambush for Him, and seeking to catch something out of His mouth, so that they might accuse Him.

And they watched and sent forth spies, pretending themselves to be righteous men, so that they might seize upon a word of His, that they might deliver Him in this way to the power and authority of the governor.

They said this, tempting Him so that they might have reason to accuse Him. But bending down, Jesus wrote on the ground with His finger, not appearing to hear.


And Abraham drew near and said, Will You also destroy the righteous with the wicked? Perhaps there are fifty righteous within the city. Will You also destroy and not spare the place for the fifty righteous that are in it? Far be it from You to act in this manner, to kill the righteous with the wicked. And far be it from You, that the righteous should be as the wicked. Shall not the Judge of all the earth do right? read more.
And Jehovah said, If I find in Sodom fifty righteous within the city, then I will spare all the place for their sakes. And Abraham answered and said, Behold now, I have taken upon me to speak to Jehovah, who am but dust and ashes. Perhaps there will be five lacking from the fifty righteous. Will You destroy all the city for lack of five? And He said, If I find there forty-five, I will not destroy it. And he spoke to Him yet again, and said, Perhaps there shall be forty found there. And He said, I will not do it for forty's sake. And he said, Oh let not Jehovah be angry, and I will speak. Perhaps there shall be thirty found there. And He said, I will not do it if I find thirty there. And he said, Lo now, I have taken upon me to speak to Jehovah. Perhaps there shall be twenty found there. And He said, I will not destroy it for twenty's sake. And he said, Oh do not let Jehovah be angry, and I will speak only once more. Perhaps ten shall be found there. And He said, I will not destroy it for ten's sake.

And Jacob was left alone. And a Man wrestled there with him until the breaking of the day. And when He saw that He did not prevail against him, He touched the hollow of his thigh. And the hollow of Jacob's thigh was out of joint as he wrestled with Him. And He said, Let Me go, for the day breaks. And he said, I will not let You go except You bless me. read more.
And He said to him, What is your name? And he said, Jacob. And He said, Your name shall no longer be called Jacob, but Israel; for like a prince you have power with God and with men, and have prevailed. And Jacob asked and said, I pray You, reveal Your name. And He said, Why do you ask after My name? And He blessed him there. And Jacob called the name of the place Face of God; for I have seen God face to face, and my life is preserved.

Then King David went in and sat before Jehovah. And he said, Who am I, O Lord Jehovah? And what is my house, that You have brought me here? And this was yet a small thing in Your sight, O Lord God. But You have spoken also of Your servant's house for a great while to come. And is this the manner of men, O Lord God? And what can David say more to You? For You, O Lord Jehovah, know Your servant. read more.
For Your Word's sake, and according to Your own heart, You have done all these great things to make Your servant know. Therefore You are great, O Jehovah God. For there is none like You, neither is there any God besides You, according to all that we have heard with our ears. And what one nation in the earth is like Your people, like Israel, whom God went to redeem for a people to Himself, and to make Him a name, and to do for You great things and terrible, for Your land, before Your people, whom You redeemed to You from Egypt, from the nations and their gods? For You have confirmed to Yourself Your people Israel to be a people to You forever. And You, Jehovah, have become their God. And now, O Jehovah God, the word that You have spoken concerning Your servant, and concerning his house: establish it forever, and do as You have said. And let Your name be magnified forever, saying, The Jehovah of Hosts is the God over Israel. And let the house of Your servant David be established before You. For You, O Jehovah of Hosts, God of Israel, have revealed to Your servant, saying, I will build you a house. Therefore Your servant has found in his heart to pray this prayer to You. And now, O Lord Jehovah, You are that God, and Your Words are true, and You have promised this goodness to Your servant. Therefore, now, let it please You to bless the house of Your servant, to be forever before You. For You, O Lord Jehovah, have spoken. And with Your blessing let the house of Your servant be blessed forever.

And Solomon stood before the altar of Jehovah in the presence of all the congregation of Israel, and spread forth his hands toward the heavens. And he said, Jehovah, the God of Israel, there is no God like You, in Heaven above or on earth beneath, who keeps covenant and mercy with Your servants who walk before You with all their heart, who have kept with Your servant David my father what You promised him. You also spoke with Your mouth, and have fulfilled with Your hand, as it is today. read more.
And now, Jehovah, the God of Israel, keep with Your servant David, my father, what You promised him, saying, There shall not be cut off from you a man in My sight to sit on the throne of Israel-- if your sons take heed to their way so that they walk before Me as you have walked before Me. And now, O God of Israel, I pray You, let Your Word be proved to be true, the Word which You spoke to Your servant David my father. But will God indeed dwell on the earth? Behold, the heavens and the heaven of heavens cannot contain You. How much less this house which I have built? Yet, O, Jehovah my God, You have turned toward the prayer of Your servant and to his request, to listen to the cry and to the prayer which Your servant prays before You today; for Your eyes to be open toward this house night and day, toward the place of which You have said, My name shall be there; to listen to the prayer which Your servant shall pray toward this place. And You shall listen to the cry of Your servant, and of Your people Israel, when they shall pray toward this place, and hear in Heaven Your dwelling-place, and when You hear, forgive! If any man sins against his neighbor, and if an oath is laid on him to cause him to swear, and if the oath comes before Your altar in this house, then hear in Heaven, and do, and judge Your servants, to declare the wicked to be wicked, to bring his way on his head, and to declare the righteous to be righteous, to give him according to his righteousness. When Your people Israel are crushed before the enemy because they have sinned against You, and shall turn again to You and confess Your name, and pray, and cry to You in this house, then hear in Heaven and forgive the sin of Your people Israel, and bring them again into the land which You gave to their fathers. When the heavens are restrained, and there is no rain because they have sinned against You, if they pray toward this place and confess Your name, and turn from their sin when You afflict them, then hear in Heaven and forgive the sin of Your servants, and of Your people Israel, for You shall teach them the good way in which they should walk, and give rain on Your land which You have given to Your people for an inheritance. If there is famine in the land, if there is plague, blasting, mildew, locusts; if there are stripping locusts; if their enemy encircles them in the land of their cities, whatever plague, whatever sickness, any prayer, any supplication from any man of all Your people Israel, who shall each know the plague of his own heart, and shall spread forth his hands toward this house, then hear in Heaven Your dwelling-place, and forgive, and do, and give to every man according to all his ways, whose heart You know. For You, You only, know the hearts of all the sons of Adam. Do this so that they may fear You all the days that they live in the land which You have given to our fathers. And concerning a stranger who is not of Your people Israel, but who comes out of a far country for Your name's sake; for they shall hear of Your great name and of Your strong hand and of Your stretched-out arm; and if he shall come and pray toward this house, hear in Heaven Your dwelling-place, and do according to all that the stranger calls to You for, so that all the peoples of the earth may know Your name, to fear You, as Your people Israel do, and that they may know that this house which I have built is called by Your name. If Your people go out to battle against their enemy, wherever You shall send them, and shall pray to Jehovah toward the city which You have chosen, and the house that I have built for Your name, then hear in Heaven their prayer and their cry, and maintain their cause. If they sin against You (for there is no man who does not sin), and if You are angry with them, and have delivered them up before the enemy, and they have been led away captive to the land of the enemy, far or near, yet if they shall think within themselves in the land where they are carried captives, and repent, and pray to You in the land of their captors saying, We have sinned and have done perversely, we have done wickedly, and so return to You with all their heart, and with all their soul, in the land of their enemies who led them away captive, and if they pray to You toward their land which You gave to their fathers, to the city which You have chosen, and the house which I have built for Your name, then hear their prayer and their cry in Heaven Your dwelling-place, and maintain their cause, and forgive Your people who have sinned against You, even all their sins which they have done against You, and give them pity before their captors, so that they may have pity on them. For they are Your people, and Your inheritance, which You brought out of Egypt, from the middle of the furnace of iron, for Your eyes shall be open to the prayer of Your servant, and to the prayer of Your people Israel, to listen to them in all that they call for to You. For You have separated them from among all the people of the earth to be Your inheritance, as You spoke by the hand of Moses Your servant, when You brought our fathers out of Egypt, O Lord Jehovah. And it happened as Solomon finished praying all this prayer and petition to Jehovah, he rose from before the altar of Jehovah, from kneeling on his knees with his hands spread up to heaven. And he stood and blessed all the congregation of Israel with a loud voice, saying, Blessed be Jehovah, who has given rest to His people Israel, according to all that He promised. There has not failed one word of all His good promise which He promised by the hand of Moses His servant. May Jehovah our God be with us as He was with our fathers. Let Him not leave us nor forsake us, to incline our hearts to Himself, to walk in all His ways and to keep His commandments and His statutes and His judgments which He commanded our fathers. And let these my words, with which I have prayed before Jehovah, be near Jehovah our God day and night, so that He may maintain the cause of His servant, and the cause of His people Israel of each day in its day, for all the people of the earth know that Jehovah is God; there is no other. And let your heart be perfect with Jehovah our God, to walk in His statutes, and to keep His commandments, as at this day.

And it happened as He was praying in a certain place, when He ceased, one of His disciples said to Him, Lord, teach us to pray, as John also taught His disciples. And He said to them, When you pray, say: Our Father, who is in Heaven, hallowed be Your name. Your kingdom come, Your will be done, as in Heaven, so also on the earth. Give us day by day our daily bread, read more.
and forgive us our sins, for we ourselves also forgive everyone who is indebted to us. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. And He said to them, which of you shall have a friend and shall go to him at midnight and say to him, Friend, lend me three loaves, for a friend of mine has come from a journey, and I have nothing to set before him? And he answering from inside may say, Do not trouble me. The door is now shut and my children are in bed with me. I cannot rise and give to you. I say to you, though he will not rise and give to him because he is his friend, yet because of his importunity he will arise and give him as many as he needs. And I say to you, Ask and it shall be given you. Seek and you shall find. Knock and it shall be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives. And he who seeks finds. And to him who knocks it shall be opened. For what father of you, if the son asks for bread, will he give him a stone? Or if he asks for a fish, will he give him a snake for a fish? Or if he shall ask for an egg, will he give him a scorpion? If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more shall your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask Him?

And He also spoke a parable to them to teach it is always right to pray, and not to faint, saying, A certain judge was in a certain city, not fearing God, nor respecting man. And a widow was in that city. And she came to Him, saying, Avenge me of my adversary. read more.
And he would not do so for a time. But afterward he said within himself, Though I do not fear God nor regard man, yet because this widow troubles me, I will avenge her, that she not wear me down in the end. And the Lord said, Hear what the unjust judge says. And shall not God avenge His own elect who cry day and night to Him, though He has been long-suffering over them? I say to you that He will avenge them speedily. Yet when the Son of Man comes, shall He find faith on the earth?


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

But while He yet talked with the people, behold, His mother and His brothers stood outside, desiring to speak with Him.

Then His brothers and His mother came. And standing outside, they sent to Him, calling Him.

After this He went down to Capernaum, He and His mother and His brothers and His disciples. And they did not stay there many days.

Therefore His brothers said to Him, Move away from here and go into Judea, so that Your disciples also may see the works that You do.

For His brothers did not believe in Him.

Do we not have authority to lead about a sister, a wife, as well as other apostles, and as the brothers of the Lord do, and Cephas?

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


And Abraham drew near and said, Will You also destroy the righteous with the wicked? Perhaps there are fifty righteous within the city. Will You also destroy and not spare the place for the fifty righteous that are in it? Far be it from You to act in this manner, to kill the righteous with the wicked. And far be it from You, that the righteous should be as the wicked. Shall not the Judge of all the earth do right? read more.
And Jehovah said, If I find in Sodom fifty righteous within the city, then I will spare all the place for their sakes. And Abraham answered and said, Behold now, I have taken upon me to speak to Jehovah, who am but dust and ashes. Perhaps there will be five lacking from the fifty righteous. Will You destroy all the city for lack of five? And He said, If I find there forty-five, I will not destroy it. And he spoke to Him yet again, and said, Perhaps there shall be forty found there. And He said, I will not do it for forty's sake. And he said, Oh let not Jehovah be angry, and I will speak. Perhaps there shall be thirty found there. And He said, I will not do it if I find thirty there. And he said, Lo now, I have taken upon me to speak to Jehovah. Perhaps there shall be twenty found there. And He said, I will not destroy it for twenty's sake. And he said, Oh do not let Jehovah be angry, and I will speak only once more. Perhaps ten shall be found there. And He said, I will not destroy it for ten's sake.

And Jacob was left alone. And a Man wrestled there with him until the breaking of the day. And when He saw that He did not prevail against him, He touched the hollow of his thigh.

When the heavens are restrained, and there is no rain because they have sinned against You, if they pray toward this place and confess Your name, and turn from their sin when You afflict them, then hear in Heaven and forgive the sin of Your servants, and of Your people Israel, for You shall teach them the good way in which they should walk, and give rain on Your land which You have given to Your people for an inheritance. If there is famine in the land, if there is plague, blasting, mildew, locusts; if there are stripping locusts; if their enemy encircles them in the land of their cities, whatever plague, whatever sickness, any prayer, any supplication from any man of all Your people Israel, who shall each know the plague of his own heart, and shall spread forth his hands toward this house, then hear in Heaven Your dwelling-place, and forgive, and do, and give to every man according to all his ways, whose heart You know. For You, You only, know the hearts of all the sons of Adam. Do this so that they may fear You all the days that they live in the land which You have given to our fathers. And concerning a stranger who is not of Your people Israel, but who comes out of a far country for Your name's sake; for they shall hear of Your great name and of Your strong hand and of Your stretched-out arm; and if he shall come and pray toward this house, hear in Heaven Your dwelling-place, and do according to all that the stranger calls to You for, so that all the peoples of the earth may know Your name, to fear You, as Your people Israel do, and that they may know that this house which I have built is called by Your name. If Your people go out to battle against their enemy, wherever You shall send them, and shall pray to Jehovah toward the city which You have chosen, and the house that I have built for Your name, then hear in Heaven their prayer and their cry, and maintain their cause. If they sin against You (for there is no man who does not sin), and if You are angry with them, and have delivered them up before the enemy, and they have been led away captive to the land of the enemy, far or near, yet if they shall think within themselves in the land where they are carried captives, and repent, and pray to You in the land of their captors saying, We have sinned and have done perversely, we have done wickedly, and so return to You with all their heart, and with all their soul, in the land of their enemies who led them away captive, and if they pray to You toward their land which You gave to their fathers, to the city which You have chosen, and the house which I have built for Your name, then hear their prayer and their cry in Heaven Your dwelling-place, and maintain their cause, and forgive Your people who have sinned against You, even all their sins which they have done against You, and give them pity before their captors, so that they may have pity on them. For they are Your people, and Your inheritance, which You brought out of Egypt, from the middle of the furnace of iron, for Your eyes shall be open to the prayer of Your servant, and to the prayer of Your people Israel, to listen to them in all that they call for to You. For You have separated them from among all the people of the earth to be Your inheritance, as You spoke by the hand of Moses Your servant, when You brought our fathers out of Egypt, O Lord Jehovah. And it happened as Solomon finished praying all this prayer and petition to Jehovah, he rose from before the altar of Jehovah, from kneeling on his knees with his hands spread up to heaven. And he stood and blessed all the congregation of Israel with a loud voice, saying, Blessed be Jehovah, who has given rest to His people Israel, according to all that He promised. There has not failed one word of all His good promise which He promised by the hand of Moses His servant. May Jehovah our God be with us as He was with our fathers. Let Him not leave us nor forsake us, to incline our hearts to Himself, to walk in all His ways and to keep His commandments and His statutes and His judgments which He commanded our fathers. And let these my words, with which I have prayed before Jehovah, be near Jehovah our God day and night, so that He may maintain the cause of His servant, and the cause of His people Israel of each day in its day, for all the people of the earth know that Jehovah is God; there is no other. And let your heart be perfect with Jehovah our God, to walk in His statutes, and to keep His commandments, as at this day.

And it happened as He was praying in a certain place, when He ceased, one of His disciples said to Him, Lord, teach us to pray, as John also taught His disciples. And He said to them, When you pray, say: Our Father, who is in Heaven, hallowed be Your name. Your kingdom come, Your will be done, as in Heaven, so also on the earth. Give us day by day our daily bread, read more.
and forgive us our sins, for we ourselves also forgive everyone who is indebted to us. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. And He said to them, which of you shall have a friend and shall go to him at midnight and say to him, Friend, lend me three loaves, for a friend of mine has come from a journey, and I have nothing to set before him? And he answering from inside may say, Do not trouble me. The door is now shut and my children are in bed with me. I cannot rise and give to you. I say to you, though he will not rise and give to him because he is his friend, yet because of his importunity he will arise and give him as many as he needs. And I say to you, Ask and it shall be given you. Seek and you shall find. Knock and it shall be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives. And he who seeks finds. And to him who knocks it shall be opened. For what father of you, if the son asks for bread, will he give him a stone? Or if he asks for a fish, will he give him a snake for a fish? Or if he shall ask for an egg, will he give him a scorpion? If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more shall your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask Him?

And He also spoke a parable to them to teach it is always right to pray, and not to faint, saying, A certain judge was in a certain city, not fearing God, nor respecting man. And a widow was in that city. And she came to Him, saying, Avenge me of my adversary. read more.
And he would not do so for a time. But afterward he said within himself, Though I do not fear God nor regard man, yet because this widow troubles me, I will avenge her, that she not wear me down in the end. And the Lord said, Hear what the unjust judge says. And shall not God avenge His own elect who cry day and night to Him, though He has been long-suffering over them? I say to you that He will avenge them speedily. Yet when the Son of Man comes, shall He find faith on the earth?


And the Pharisees and scribes murmured, saying, This man receives sinners and eats with them.

Why does this one speak such blasphemies? Who can forgive sins except God only?

And when the Pharisees saw, they said to His disciples, Why does your master eat with tax-collectors and sinners?

But when the Pharisees saw, they said to Him, Behold, your disciples do that which it is not lawful to do on the sabbath day.

Why do your disciples transgress the tradition of the elders? For they do not wash their hands when they eat bread.

And when the scribes and Pharisees saw Him eat with tax-collectors and sinners, they said to His disciples, How is it that He eats and drinks with tax-collectors and sinners?

And when they saw some of His disciples eating loaves with unclean hands, that is with unwashed hands, they found fault.

And seeing, they all murmured, saying, He has gone in to stay with a sinful man.

Then the Jews murmured about Him, because He said, I am the bread which came down from Heaven.


And Jesus said to him, Truly I say to you, Today you shall be with Me in Paradise.

If anyone serves Me, let him follow Me; and where I am, there also My servant shall be. If anyone serves Me, the Father will honor him.

And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself, so that where I am, you may be also.

Father, I desire that those whom You have given Me, that they may be with Me where I am, that they may behold My glory which You have given Me, for You have loved Me before the foundation of the world.

then we are confident and we are pleased rather to go away from home out of the body, and to come home to the Lord.

For I am pressed together by the two: having a desire to depart and to be with Christ, which is far better.

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


For You will not leave My soul in hell; You will not allow Your Holy One to see corruption.

From that time Jesus began to show His disciples that He must go to Jerusalem and suffer many things from the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be killed, and be raised again the third day.

And they shall deliver Him to the nations to mock and to scourge and to crucify. And the third day He shall rise again.

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

And as they came down from the mountain, He commanded them that they should tell no one the things that they had seen until the Son of Man had risen from the dead.

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

Jesus answered and said to them, Destroy this temple and in three days I will raise it up.

Then having obtained help from God, I stand until this day, witnessing both to small and great, saying no other things than those which the prophets and Moses said was going to happen; whether the Christ was liable to suffer, whether first by a resurrection of the dead He was going to proclaim light to the people and to the nations.


being grieved that they taught the people, even to announce through Jesus the resurrection from the dead.

And Philip went down to the city of Samaria and proclaimed Christ to them.

Then Philip opened his mouth and began at the same Scripture and preached the gospel of Jesus to him.

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

You know the Word which God sent to the sons of Israel, preaching the gospel of peace by Jesus Christ (He is Lord of all!);

opening and setting forth that Christ must have suffered, and to have risen again from the dead; and that this Jesus whom I preach to you is Christ.

but we preach Christ crucified, to the Jews a stumbling block, and to the Greeks foolishness.

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


Now about the middle of the feast, Jesus went up into the temple and taught.

For He taught them as one 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 all kinds of sickness and all kinds of disease among the people.

And He opened His mouth and taught them, saying,

And going out Jesus saw a large crowd. And He was moved with compassion toward them, because they were like sheep without a shepherd. And He began to teach them many things.

And He taught in their synagogues, being glorified by all.

And He entered into one of the boats, which was Simon's, He asked him to thrust out a little from the land. And He sat down and taught the people out of the boat.

He came to Jesus by night and said to Him, Rabbi, we know that you are a teacher come from God; for no man can do these miracles which you do unless God is with him.

And early in the morning He came again into the temple, and all the people came to Him. And He sat down and taught them.


And returning, the apostles told Him all that they had done. And He took them and went aside privately into a deserted place of a city called Bethsaida.

And when He had sent the crowds away, He went up into a mountain apart to pray. And when evening had come, He was there alone.

And moving from there Jesus came beside the Sea of Galilee. And He went up into a mountain and sat there.

And after six days Jesus took Peter, James, and John his brother, and brought them up into a high mountain apart.

And going up to Jerusalem, Jesus took the twelve disciples apart in the way, and said to them,

And He said to them, Come aside into a deserted place and rest a little. For there were many coming and going, and they had no opportunity even to eat.

And He arose from there and went into the borders of Tyre and Sidon. And He entered into a house and desired no one to know it. But He could not be hidden.

And He was withdrawn from them about a stone's throw. And He kneeled down and prayed,


I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the Ending, the First and the Last.

And you, Bethlehem Ephratah, you being least among the thousands of Judah, out of you He shall come forth to Me, to become Ruler in Israel, He whose goings forth have been from of old, from the days of eternity.

Father, I desire that those whom You have given Me, that they may be with Me where I am, that they may behold My glory which You have given Me, for You have 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 to them, Truly, truly, I say to you, Before Abraham came into being, I AM!

And now Father, glorify Me with Yourself with the glory which I had with You before the world was.

And He is before all things, and by Him all things consist.

without father, without mother, without descent, having neither beginning of days nor end of life, but made like the Son of God, he remains a priest continually.


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

Jesus said to him, Have I been with you such a long time and yet you have not known Me, Philip? He who has seen Me has seen the Father. And how do you say, Show us the Father?

He was in the world, and the world came into being through Him, and the world did not know Him.

Jesus answered and said to her, If you knew the gift of God, and who it is that says to you, Give Me to drink, you would have asked of Him, and He would have given you living water.

Then they said to Him, Where is your father? Jesus said to them, You neither know Me nor My Father. If you had known Me, you would have known My Father also.

The man answered and said to them, Why, this is a marvelous thing, that you do not know from where He is, and He has opened my eyes.

And they will do these things to you because they have not known the Father nor Me.

For those living in Jerusalem, and their rulers, not having known this One, and the voices of the Prophets being read throughout every sabbath, condemning Him, they fulfilled the Scriptures.

Everyone who abides in Him does not sin. Everyone who sins has not seen Him nor known Him.


Judas (not Iscariot) said to Him, Lord, how is it that You will reveal Yourself to us and not to the world? Jesus answered and said to him, If a man loves Me, he will keep My Word. And My Father will love him, and We will come to him and make Our abode with him.

If you love Me, keep My commandments. And I will pray the Father, and He shall give you another Comforter, so that He may be with you forever,

for the Father Himself loves you, because you 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. Amen.

Hold fast the pattern of sound words which you have heard from me, in faith and love which is in Christ Jesus.

hearing of your love and faith which you have toward the Lord Jesus and toward all the saints,

whom having not seen, you love; in whom not yet seeing, but believing in Him you exult with unspeakable joy, and having been glorified,


And He commanded us to preach to the people, and to testify that it is He who was ordained of God to be the Judge of the living and the dead.

teaching them to observe all things, whatever I commanded you. And, behold, I am with you all the days until the end of the world. Amen.

And this is His commandment, that we should believe on the name of His Son Jesus Christ, and love one another, as He gave us commandment.

He who has My commandments and keeps them, he it is who loves Me. And he who loves Me shall be loved by My Father, and I will love him and will reveal Myself to him.

I give you a new commandment, that you love one another. As I have loved you, you should also love one another.

If you love Me, keep My commandments.

If you keep My commandments, you shall abide in My love, even as I have kept My Father's commandments and abide in His love.

You are My friends if you do whatever I command you.


And He put His grave with the wicked, and with a rich one in His death; although He had done no violence, nor was any deceit in His mouth.

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

For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that, though He was rich, for your sakes He became poor, in order that you might be made rich through His poverty.

Then two thieves were crucified with Him, one off the right, one off the left.

For I say to you that this which is written must yet be accomplished in Me, "And he was reckoned among the transgressors"; for the things concerning Me have an end.

In His humiliation His judgment was taken away, and who shall declare His generation? For His life is taken from the earth."

but made Himself of no reputation, and took upon Himself the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men. And being found in fashion as a man, He humbled Himself and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.


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

And blessed is he, whoever shall not be offended in Me.

but we preach Christ crucified, to the Jews a stumbling block, and to the Greeks foolishness.

And He shall be a sanctuary for you, but for a stone of stumbling, and for a rock of falling to both the houses of Israel, for a trap and for a snare to the people of Jerusalem.

And they were offended in Him. But Jesus said to them, A prophet is not without honor, except in his own country and in his own house.

Why? Because it was not of faith, but as it were by the works of the Law. For they stumbled at that Stumbling-stone;

and a Stone-of-stumbling and a Rock-of-offense to those disobeying, who stumble at the Word, to which they also were appointed.


When Jesus had said this, He was troubled in spirit, and testified and said, Truly, truly, I say to you that one of you shall betray Me.

He is despised and rejected of men; a Man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief; and as it were a hiding of faces from Him, He being despised, and we esteemed Him not.

And looking up to Heaven, He sighed and said to him, Ephphatha! (that is, Be opened!)

And He sighed deeply in His spirit and said, Why does this generation seek a sign? Truly I say to you, There shall no sign be given to this generation.

And as He drew near, He beheld the city and wept over it,

Then when He saw her weeping, and also the Jews who came with her weeping, Jesus groaned in the spirit and troubled Himself.

Jesus wept.

And My soul is troubled, and what shall I say? Father, save Me from this hour? But for this cause I came to this hour.


knowing this, that our old man is crucified with Him in order that the body of sin might be destroyed, that from now on we should not serve sin.

I have been crucified with Christ, and I live; yet no longer I, but Christ lives in me. And that life I now live in the flesh, I live by faith toward the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself on my behalf.

If then you died with Christ from the elements of the world, why, as though living in the world, are you subject to its ordinances:

As it is written, "For Your sake we are killed all the day long. We are counted as sheep of slaughter."

For we who live are always being delivered to death for Jesus' sake, so that the life of Jesus might also be revealed in our body.

For faithful is the Word, for if we died with Him, we shall also live with Him.


Then Jesus said to them, Yet a little while I am with you, and then I go to Him who sent Me.

You have heard how I said to you, I go away and I am coming to you again. If you loved Me, you would rejoice because I said, I go to the Father, for My Father is greater than I.

But now I go to Him who sent Me, and none of you asks Me, Where do You go?

And now I am in the world no longer, but these are in the world, and I come to You, Holy Father. Keep them in Your name, those whom You have given Me, so that they may be one as We are.

Little children, I am with you yet a little while. You shall seek Me; and as I said to the Jews, Where I go, you cannot come, so I now say to you.

concerning righteousness, because I go to My Father and you see Me no more;

A little while and you will not see Me; and again a little while, and you will see Me, because I go to the Father.

I came forth from the Father, and have come into the world. Again I leave the world and go to the Father.


I have spoken these things to you so that you might have peace in Me. In the world you shall have tribulation, but be of good cheer. I have overcome the world.

And when the Lord saw her, He had compassion on her and said to her, Do not weep.

Let not your heart be troubled. You believe in God, believe also in Me.

I will not leave you orphans. I will come to you.

But turning and seeing her, Jesus said, Daughter, be comforted; your faith has saved you. And the woman was saved from that hour.

But hearing the word spoken, Jesus said to the synagogue ruler, Do not be afraid, only believe.

Now may our Lord Jesus Christ Himself, and God, even our Father, who has loved us and has given us everlasting consolation and good hope through grace,


I must work the works of Him who sent Me, while it is day. Night comes when no man can work.

But last of all he sent his son to them, saying, They will respect my son.

For I came down from Heaven, not to do My own will but the will of Him who sent Me.

But I know Him, for I am from Him, and He has sent Me.

Jesus said to them, If God were your father, you would love Me, for I went forth and came from God; for I did not come of Myself, but He sent Me.

do you say of Him whom the Father has sanctified and sent into the world, You blaspheme, because I said, I am the Son of God?

For I have given to them the Words which You gave Me, and they have received them and have known surely that I came out from You. And they have believed that You sent Me.

that they all may be one, as You, Father, are in Me, and I in You, that they also may be one in Us, so that the world may believe that You have sent Me.


Was it not necessary for the Christ to suffer these things and to enter into His glory?

For I say to you that this which is written must yet be accomplished in Me, "And he was reckoned among the transgressors"; for the things concerning Me have an end.

And He began to teach them that the Son of Man must suffer many things and be rejected by the elders and the chief priests and scribes, and be killed, 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 slain, and be raised the third day.

But I have a baptism to be baptized with, and how I am pressed down until it is accomplished!

saying, The Son of Man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men and be crucified, and the third day rise again?

And He said to them, So it is written, and so it behoved Christ to suffer and to rise from the dead the third day,

But even as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of Man be lifted up,

And He said to them, So it is written, and so it behoved Christ to suffer and to rise from the dead the third day,

But even as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of Man be lifted up,


Therefore God has highly exalted Him, and has given Him a name which is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of heavenly ones, and of earthly ones, and of ones under the earth; and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

For to us a Child is born, to us a Son is given; and the government shall be on His shoulder; and His name shall be called Wonderful, Counselor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.

And He has on His garment, and on His thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS.

being made so much better than the angels, as He has by inheritance obtained a more excellent name than they.

And behold! You shall conceive in your womb and bear a son, and you shall call His name JESUS.

And His eyes were like a flame of fire, and on His head many crowns. And He had a name written, one that no one knew except Himself.


"Tell the daughter of Zion, Behold, your King comes to you, meek, and sitting on an ass, even a colt the foal of an ass."

And I myself, Paul, beseech you by the meekness and gentleness of Christ; I, who indeed to look upon am lowly among you, but being absent am bold toward you.

Take My yoke on you and learn of Me, for I am meek and lowly in heart, and you shall find rest to your souls.

He was oppressed, and He was afflicted; yet He opened not His mouth. He is brought as a lamb to the slaughter; and as a sheep before its shearers is dumb, so He opened not His mouth.

Then Jesus said to him, Put up your sword again into its place; for all who take the sword shall perish with a sword.

who when He was reviled did not revile in return. When He suffered, He did not threaten, but gave Himself up to Him who judges righteously.


even from Jesus Christ the faithful Witness, the First-born from the dead and the Ruler of the kings of the earth. To Him who loved us and washed us from our sins in His own blood,

I charge you before God (who makes all things alive) and in the sight of Christ Jesus (who witnessed the good confession to Pontius Pilate),

Pilate then said to Him, Are you a king then? Jesus answered, You say it that I am a king. To this end I was born, and for this cause I came into the world, that I should bear witness to the truth. Everyone who is of the truth hears My voice.

Behold, I have given Him for a witness to the people, a Leader and Commander of peoples.

Truly, truly, I say to you, We speak what we know and testify what we have seen. And you do not receive our witness.

and what He has seen and heard, that He testifies, and no one receives His testimony.

Jesus answered and said to them, Though I bear record concerning Myself, My witness is true. For I know from where I came, and where I go. But you do not know from where I came, and where I go.


For a woman, whose young daughter had an unclean spirit, heard of Him and came and fell at His feet.

I will raise them up a Prophet from among their brothers, one like you, and will put My words in His mouth. And He shall speak to them all that I shall command Him.

For Moses truly said to the fathers, "The Lord your God shall raise up a Prophet to you from your brothers, One like me. You shall hear Him in all things, whatever He may say to you.

For I have given to them the Words which You gave Me, and they have received them and have known surely that I came out from You. And they have believed that You sent Me.

I have many things to say and to judge of you, but He who sent Me is true, and I speak to the world those things what I heard of Him.

For I have not spoken of Myself, but the Father who sent Me gave Me a command, what I should say, and what I should speak.

Do you not believe that I am in the Father and the Father in Me? The Words that I speak to you I do not speak of Myself, but the Father who dwells in Me, He does the works.

He who does not love Me does not keep My Words, and the Word which you hear is not Mine, but the Father's who sent Me.

In that day shall the Branch of Jehovah be beautiful and glorious, and the fruit of the earth excellent and comely for those who have escaped from Israel.

And a Shoot goes out from the stump of Jesse, and a Branch shall grow out of his roots.

Behold, the days come, says Jehovah, that I will raise to David a righteous Branch, and a King shall reign and act wisely, and shall do judgment and justice in the earth.

In those days, and at that time, I will cause the Branch of righteousness to grow up to David. And He shall do judgment and righteousness in the land.

Hear now, O Joshua the high priest, you and your fellows who sit before you; for they are men of symbol.

The one hearing you hears Me, and he who despises you despises Me; he who rejects you also rejects Him who sent Me.

And he fell to the earth and heard a voice saying to him, Saul, Saul, why do you persecute Me?

And sinning in this way against your brothers, and wounding their conscience, being weak, you sin against Christ.


For He has delivered us from the power of darkness and has translated us into the kingdom of His dear Son;

"Behold My Child whom I have chosen; My Beloved, in whom My soul is well pleased. I will put My Spirit on Him, and He shall declare judgment to the nations.

While he yet spoke, behold, a bright cloud overshadowed them. And behold a voice out of the cloud which said, This is My beloved Son in whom I am well pleased, hear Him.

And there came a voice from Heaven, saying, You are My beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.

to the praise of the glory of His grace, in which He has made us accepted in the One having been loved.

So also Christ did not glorify Himself to be made a high priest, but He who said to Him, "You are My Son, today I have begotten You."

You love righteousness, and hate wickedness; therefore God, Your God, has anointed You with the oil of gladness above Your fellows.

And He saw that there was no man, and wondered that there was no intercessor. Therefore His own arm brought salvation to Him; and His righteousness sustained Him.

Behold, the days come, says Jehovah, that I will raise to David a righteous Branch, and a King shall reign and act wisely, and shall do judgment and justice in the earth.

And I saw Heaven opened. And behold, a white horse! And He sitting on him was called Faithful and True. And in righteousness He judges and makes war.

And righteousness shall be the girdle of His loins, and faithfulness the girdle of His heart.

I Jehovah have called You in righteousness, and will hold Your hand, and will keep You, and give You for a covenant of the people, for a Light of the nations;


And again, when He brings in the First-born into the world, He says, "And let all the angels of God worship Him."

And those in the boat came and worshiped Him, saying, Truly You are the Son of God.

But as they were going to report to His disciples, behold, Jesus also met them, saying, Hail! And they came and held Him by the feet and worshiped Him.

And coming into the house, they saw the child with Mary His mother. And they fell down and worshiped Him. And opening their treasures, they presented gifts to Him, gold and frankincense and myrrh.

And worshiping Him, they returned to Jerusalem with great joy.

And when He had taken the book, the four living creatures and the twenty-four elders fell down before the Lamb, each one having harps and golden vials full of incense, which are the prayers of the saints.


Everyone who denies the Son neither has the Father. The one confessing the Son also has the Father.

Also I say to you, Whoever shall confess Me before men, the Son of Man also shall confess him before the angels of God.

Because if you confess the Lord Jesus, and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you shall be saved.

Then everyone who shall confess Me before men, I will confess him before My Father who is in Heaven.

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

Whoever shall confess that Jesus is the Son of God, God dwells in him and he in God.


and to Jesus the Mediator of the new covenant, and to blood of sprinkling that speaks better things than that of Abel.

For God is one, and there is one Mediator of God and of men, the Man Christ Jesus,

But now He has obtained a more excellent ministry, by so much He is also the Mediator of a better covenant, which was built upon better promises.

And for this cause He is the Mediator of the new covenant, so that by means of death, for the redemption of the transgressions that were under the first covenant, those who are called might receive the promise of eternal inheritance.

For Christ has not entered into the Holy of Holies made with hands, which are the figures of the true, but into Heaven itself, now to appear in the presence of God for us.

My little children, I write these things to you so that you may not sin. And if anyone sins, we have an Advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous.


And He is the Head of the body, the church, who is the Beginning, the First-born from the dead, that He may be pre-eminent in all things.

And He has put all things under His feet and gave Him to be Head over all things to the church,

But that you, speaking the truth in love, may in all things grow up to Him who is the Head, even Christ;

For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church; and He is the Savior of the body.

and not holding the Head, from whom all the body, having been supplied through the joints and bands, and having been joined together, will grow with the growth of God.


Do you not know that your bodies are the members of Christ? Shall I then take the members of Christ and make them the members of a harlot? Let it not be!

For we are members of His body, of His flesh, and of His bones.

So, my brothers, you also have become dead to the law by the body of Christ so that you should be married to Another, even to Him raised from the dead, that we should bring forth fruit to God.

For I am jealous over you with godly jealousy. For I have espoused you to one Man, to present you as a pure virgin to Christ.

Therefore what you heard from the beginning, let it abide in you. If what you heard from the beginning remains in you, you will abide in both the Son and in the Father.


From now on the Son of Man shall sit at the right hand of the power of God. And they all said, Are you then the Son of God? And He said to them, You say it, because I AM!

I and the Father are one!

If I do not do the works of My Father, do not believe Me. But if I do, though you do not believe Me, believe the works so that you may know and believe that the Father is in Me, and I in Him.

And he who sees Me sees Him who sent Me.

If you had known Me, you would have known My Father also. And from now on you know Him and have seen Him. Philip said to Him, Lord, show us the Father, and it is enough for us. Jesus said to him, Have I been with you such a long time and yet you have not known Me, Philip? He who has seen Me has seen the Father. And how do you say, Show us the Father? read more.
Do you not believe that I am in the Father and the Father in Me? The Words that I speak to you I do not speak of Myself, but the Father who dwells in Me, He does the works.

All things that the Father has are Mine. Therefore I said that He will take of Mine and will announce it to you.


For in Him dwells all the fullness of the Godhead bodily.

And out of His fullness we all have received, and grace for grace.

And He has put all things under His feet and gave Him to be Head over all things to the church, which is His body, the fullness of Him who fills all in all.

And this until we all come into the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a full-grown man, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ;

For it pleased the Father that in Him all fullness should dwell.


And the apostles gave witness of the resurrection of the Lord Jesus with great power. And great grace was on them all.

And we are witnesses of all things which He did, both in the land of the Jews and in Jerusalem. They killed Him and hanged Him on a tree; but God raised Him up the third day and showed Him openly, not to all the people, but to witnesses hand-picked before by God, even to us who ate and drank with Him after He rose from the dead.

who was marked out the Son of God in power, according to the Spirit of holiness, by the resurrection from the dead;

this One given to you by the before-determined counsel and foreknowledge of God, you have taken and by lawless hands, crucifying Him, you put Him to death; whom God raised up, having loosed the pains of death, because it was not possible that He should be held by it.

But you denied the Holy and Just One and desired a murderer to be given to you. And you killed the Prince of Life, whom God has raised from the dead, of which we are witnesses.

And according to Paul's custom, he went in to them and reasoned with them out of the Scriptures on three sabbaths, opening and setting forth that Christ must have suffered, and to have risen again from the dead; and that this Jesus whom I preach to you is Christ.


After that He poured water into a basin and began to wash the disciples' feet, and to wipe them with the towel with which He was girded.

Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion; shout, O daughter of Jerusalem; behold, your King comes to you. He is righteous and victorious, meek and riding on an ass, even on a colt, the son of an ass.

Take My yoke on you and learn of Me, for I am meek and lowly in heart, and you shall find rest to your souls.

For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that, though He was rich, for your sakes He became poor, in order that you might be made rich through His poverty.

And being found in fashion as a man, He humbled Himself and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.


For all things were created in Him, the things in the heavens, and the things on the earth, the visible and the invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers, all things were created through Him and for Him.

but there is to us only one God, the Father, of whom are all things, and we in Him; and one Lord Jesus Christ, through whom are all things, and we by Him.

All things came into being through Him, and without Him not even one thing came into being that has come into being.

and to bring to light what is the fellowship of the mystery which from eternity has been hidden in God, who created all things by Jesus Christ;

God, who at many times and in many ways spoke in time past to the fathers by the prophets, has in these last days spoken to us by His Son, whom He has appointed heir of all things, by whom also He made the worlds,


And He said, Go into the city to such a man, and say to him, The Master said, My time is at hand. I will keep the Passover at your house with My disciples.

Then He came to His disciples and said to them, Sleep on now and take your rest. Behold, the hour is at hand, and the Son of Man is betrayed into the hands of sinners.

Then they sought to seize Him, but no one laid a hand on Him, because His hour had not yet come.

And Jesus answered them, saying, The hour has come that the Son of Man should be glorified.

And before the feast of the Passover, when Jesus knew that His hour had come when He should depart out of this world to the Father, having loved His own in the world, He loved them to the end.

Jesus spoke these words and lifted up His eyes to Heaven and said, Father, the hour has come. Glorify Your Son so that Your Son also may glorify You,


But the Pharisees said, He throws out demons by the ruler of the demons.

But when the Pharisees heard, they said, This one does not cast out demons except by Beelzebub the ruler of the demons.

But some of them said, He casts out demons through Beelzebub the chief of the demons.

And they spoke many other things blasphemously against Him.

Because they said, He has an unclean spirit.

Do they not blaspheme that worthy Name by which you are called?


But to them, the called-out ones, both Jews and Greeks, Christ is the power of God and the wisdom of God.

And the Child grew and became strong in spirit, filled with wisdom. And the grace of God was on Him.

And when He had come into His own country, He taught them in their synagogue, so much so that they were astonished and said, From where does this man have this wisdom and these mighty works?

And the Spirit of Jehovah shall rest on Him, the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge and of the fear of Jehovah.

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


And in the last day of the great feast, Jesus stood and cried out, saying, If anyone thirsts, let him come to Me and drink.

And about the ninth hour, Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying, Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani? That is, My God, My God, why have You forsaken me?

And other fell on good ground and sprang up, and bore fruit a hundredfold. And when He had said these things, He cried, He who has ears to hear, let him hear.

Then Jesus cried in the temple as He taught, saying, You both know Me, and you know from where I come. And I have not come of Myself, but He who sent Me is true, whom you do not know.

But Jesus cried out and said, He who believes on Me does not believe on Me but on Him who sent Me.

And crying again with a loud voice, Jesus released His spirit.


While he yet spoke, behold, a bright cloud overshadowed them. And behold a voice out of the cloud which said, This is My beloved Son in whom I am well pleased, hear Him.

And lo, a voice from Heaven, saying, This is My beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.
