and walk in love even as Christ loved us, and gave himself for us, an offering and a sacrifice of a sweet savour to God.

which gave himself for our sins, to deliver us from this present evil world, through the will of God our father,

which gave himself for us, to redeem us from all unrighteousness, and to purge us a peculiar people unto himself, fervently given unto good works.

To him that is of power to establish you according to my gospel and preaching of Jesus Christ, in uttering of the mystery which was kept secret since the world began,

that their hearts might be comforted and knit together in love, and in all riches of full understanding, for to know the mystery of God the father and of Christ:

but we speak the wisdom of God, which is in secret and lieth hid, which God ordained before the world unto our glory:

And hath opened unto us the mystery of his will according to his pleasure, and purposed

whereby, when ye read ye may know mine understanding in the mystery of Christ,

"For I am sure that my redeemer liveth, and that I shall rise out of the earth in the latter day:

Thus sayeth the LORD the holy one of Israel, your redeemer, "For your sake I have sent to Babylon, and brought down the strongest of them. All they are fugitive with the Chaldeans that boast them of their ships:

And he shall redeem Israel from all his sins.

For he that delivereth them is mighty, even he shall defend their cause against thee.

Be not afraid, thou little worm Jacob, and thou despised Israel: for I will help thee, sayeth the LORD, and the holy one of Israel thine avenger.

For thus sayeth the LORD thy redeemer, even he that fashioned thee from thy mother's womb: I am the LORD, which do all things myself alone. I only have spread out the heavens, and I only have laid the foundation of the earth.

sayeth our redeemer, which is called the LORD of Hosts, the holy one of Israel.

But unto Zion there shall come a redeemer, and unto them in Jacob that turn from wickedness, sayeth the LORD.

but ye denied the holy and just, and desired a murderer to be given you,

Jesus said unto him, "Verily I say unto thee, that this same night, before the cock crow, thou shalt deny me thrice."

They confess that they know God: but with the deeds they deny him and are abominable, and disobedient, and unto all good works discommendable.

But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my father which is in heaven.

Peter sat without in the palace, and a damsel came to him, saying, "Thou also wast with Jesus of Galilee." But he denied before them all saying, "I know not what thou sayest."

If we be patient, we shall also reign with him; If we deny him, he also shall deny us;

And he commanded unto us to preach unto the people and testify, that it is he that is ordained of God, a judge of quick and dead.

because he hath appointed a day, in the which he will judge the world according to righteousness, by that man, whom he hath appointed, and hath offered faith to all men, after that he had raised him from death."

at the day when God shall judge the secrets of men, by Jesus Christ according to my Gospel.

But why doest thou then judge thy brother? Other why dost thou despise thy brother? We shall all be brought before the judgment seat of Christ.

which shall give accounts to him that is ready to judge quick and dead.


which is our righthand of God, and is gone into heaven: angels, power, and might subdued unto him.

Thou hast loved righteousness and hated iniquity: Wherefore God, which is thy God, hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows."

So therefore let all the house of Israel know for a surety, that God hath made the same Jesus whom ye have crucified, Lord and Christ."

So then when the Lord had spoken unto them, he was received into heaven, and is set down on the righthand of God.

Hereafter shall the son of man sit on the righthand of the power of God."

Him hath God lift up with his right hand, to be a ruler and a saviour: for to give repentance to Israel and forgiveness of sins.

which he wrought in Christ, when he raised him from the dead and set him on his righthand in heavenly things,

Wherefore God hath exalted him, and given him a name above all names:

saying with a loud voice, "Worthy is the lamb that was killed to receive power, and riches and wisdom, and strength, and honour and glory, and blessing."


Wherefore in all things it became him to be made like unto his brethren, that he might be merciful, and a faithful high priest in things concerning God, for to purge the people's sins.

and from Jesus Christ which is a faithful witness, and first begotten of the dead: and Lord over the kings of the earth. Unto him that loved us and washed us from our sins in his own blood,

but the Lord is faithful, which shall establish you, and keep you from evil.

and let us keep the profession of our hope, without wavering - for he is faithful that promised -

Faithful is he, which called you: which will also do it.

If we believe not, yet abideth he faithful. He cannot deny himself.

And I saw heaven open, and behold a white horse: and he that sat upon him was faithful and true, and in righteousness did judge and make battle.


neither by the blood of goats, and calves: but by his own blood, we entered once for all into the holy place, and found eternal redemption.

But Christ hath delivered us from the curse of the law, and was made accursed for us - for it is written, "Cursed is everyone that hangeth on tree" -

and they sung a new song saying, "Thou art worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof, for thou wast killed, and hast redeemed us by thy blood, out of all kindreds, and tongues, and people, and nations,

which gave himself for us, to redeem us from all unrighteousness, and to purge us a peculiar people unto himself, fervently given unto good works.

but are justified freely by his grace, through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus

And unto him pertain ye, in Christ Jesus, which of God is made unto us wisdom, and also righteousness, and sanctifying, and redemption.

in whom we have redemption through his blood, that is to say, forgiveness of sins,

Forasmuch as ye know how that ye were not redeemed with corruptible gold and silver from your vain conversation, which ye received by the traditions of the fathers,


Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you and ordained you that ye go, and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit remain, that whatsoever ye shall ask of the father in my name he should give it you.

And this did she many days. But Paul, not content, turned about and said to the spirit, "I command thee in the name of Jesus Christ that thou come out of her." And he came out the same hour.

And whatsoever ye ask in my name, that will I do, that the father might be glorified by the son.

And that repentance, and remission of sins, should be preached in his name among all nations. And must begin at Jerusalem.

At that day shall ye ask in mine name. And I say not unto you that I will speak unto my father for you.

These are written that ye might believe that Jesus is Christ the son of God. And that ye in believing ye might have life through his name.

Then said Peter, "Silver and gold have I none: such as I have, give I thee. In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, rise up and walk."

And his name, through the faith of his name, hath made this man sound whom ye see and know. And the faith which is by him, hath to him given this health, in the presence of you all.

be it known unto you all, and to all the people of Israel, that in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom ye crucified, and whom God raised from death again, even by him doth this man stand here present before you whole.

giving thanks always for all things unto God the father, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ:


"I looked till the seats were prepared, and till the Ancient of Days sat him down. His clothing was white as snow, and the hairs of his head like the pure wool. His throne was like the fiery flame, and his wheels as the burning fire.

Thou art the fairest among the children of men; full of grace are thy lips, because God hath blessed thee for ever.

His throat is sweet; yea, he is altogether lovely. Such one is my love, O ye daughters of Jerusalem, such one is my love.

Like as the multitude shall wonder upon him, because his face shall be so deformed and not as a man's face, and his beauty like no man:

He came up as a spray before him, and as a root out of a dry land. There was neither fashion or beauty on him. And when we looked on him, there was no godliness that we should lust after him.

and was transfigured before them: and his face did shine as the sun, and his clothes were as white as the light.

His head and his hairs were white, as white wool, and as snow: and his eyes were as a flame of fire:

And he that sat was, to look upon, like unto a jasper stone, and a sardine stone: And there was a rainbow about the seat, in sight like unto an emerald.


Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you and ordained you that ye go, and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit remain, that whatsoever ye shall ask of the father in my name he should give it you.

And this did she many days. But Paul, not content, turned about and said to the spirit, "I command thee in the name of Jesus Christ that thou come out of her." And he came out the same hour.

And whatsoever ye ask in my name, that will I do, that the father might be glorified by the son.

And that repentance, and remission of sins, should be preached in his name among all nations. And must begin at Jerusalem.

At that day shall ye ask in mine name. And I say not unto you that I will speak unto my father for you.

These are written that ye might believe that Jesus is Christ the son of God. And that ye in believing ye might have life through his name.

Then said Peter, "Silver and gold have I none: such as I have, give I thee. In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, rise up and walk."

And his name, through the faith of his name, hath made this man sound whom ye see and know. And the faith which is by him, hath to him given this health, in the presence of you all.

be it known unto you all, and to all the people of Israel, that in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom ye crucified, and whom God raised from death again, even by him doth this man stand here present before you whole.

giving thanks always for all things unto God the father, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ:


These shall fight with the lamb, and the lamb shall overcome them: For he is Lord of Lords, and King of Kings: and they that are on his side, are called, and chosen, and faithful."

Verily I say unto you, some there be among them that here stand, which shall not taste of death, till they shall have seen the son of man come in his kingdom."

that ye may eat, and drink at my table in my kingdom and sit on seats, and judge the twelve tribes of Israel."

And he said unto Jesus, "Lord, remember me when thou comest into thy kingdom."

Jesus answered, "My kingdom is not of this world. If my kingdom were of this world then would my ministers surely fight, that I should not be delivered to the Jews, but now is my kingdom not from hence."

That in the name of Jesus should every knee bow, both of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under earth;

But unto the son he saith, "God, thy seat shall be forever, and ever. The sceptre of thy kingdom is a right sceptre.

And the seventh angel blew, and there were made great voices in heaven, saying, "The kingdoms of this world are our Lord's and his Christ's, and he shall reign for evermore."


Let there be but one Lord, one faith, one baptism:

For God is faithful, by whom ye are called unto the fellowship of his son Jesus Christ our Lord.

So therefore let all the house of Israel know for a surety, that God hath made the same Jesus whom ye have crucified, Lord and Christ."

Him hath God lift up with his right hand, to be a ruler and a saviour: for to give repentance to Israel and forgiveness of sins.

And he said unto them, "The son of man is Lord even of the Sabbath day."

For if thou shalt knowledge with thy mouth that Jesus is the Lord, and shalt believe with thine heart that God raised him up from death, thou shalt be safe.

yet unto us is there but one God, which is the father, of whom are all things, and we in him: and one Lord Jesus Christ, by whom are all things, and we by him.

Wherefore I declare unto you that no man speaking in the spirit of God defieth Jesus. Also no man can say that Jesus is the Lord, but by the holy ghost.


Let there be but one Lord, one faith, one baptism:

For God is faithful, by whom ye are called unto the fellowship of his son Jesus Christ our Lord.

So therefore let all the house of Israel know for a surety, that God hath made the same Jesus whom ye have crucified, Lord and Christ."

Him hath God lift up with his right hand, to be a ruler and a saviour: for to give repentance to Israel and forgiveness of sins.

And he said unto them, "The son of man is Lord even of the Sabbath day."

For if thou shalt knowledge with thy mouth that Jesus is the Lord, and shalt believe with thine heart that God raised him up from death, thou shalt be safe.

yet unto us is there but one God, which is the father, of whom are all things, and we in him: and one Lord Jesus Christ, by whom are all things, and we by him.

Wherefore I declare unto you that no man speaking in the spirit of God defieth Jesus. Also no man can say that Jesus is the Lord, but by the holy ghost.


Wherefore he is able also ever to save them that come unto God by him, seeing he ever liveth, to make intercession for us.

for unto you is born this day in the city of David a saviour, which is Christ the Lord.

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, through him, might be saved.

This is a true saying, and by all means worthy to be received, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners, of whom I am chief:

Him hath God lift up with his right hand, to be a ruler and a saviour: for to give repentance to Israel and forgiveness of sins.

Of this man's seed hath God, according to his promise, brought forth to the people of Israel a saviour, one Jesus,

but is now declared openly by the appearing of our saviour Jesus Christ, which hath put away death, and hath brought life and immortality unto light through the gospel,

And we have seen and do testify that the father hath sent his son, which is the saviour of the world.


Forasmuch as Christ hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, for to bring us to God, and was killed, as pertaining to the flesh: but was quickened in the spirit.

For the zeal of thine house hath even eaten me; and the rebukes of them that rebuked thee is fallen upon me.

But Christ hath delivered us from the curse of the law, and was made accursed for us - for it is written, "Cursed is everyone that hangeth on tree" -

Nevertheless, we yet see not all things subdued unto him. But him that was made less than the angels, we see that it was Iesus: which is crowned with glory and honour for the suffering of death; that he, by the grace of God, should taste of death for all men.

for he hath made him to be sin for us, which knew no sin, that we by his means should be that righteousness which before God is allowed.

He was wounded for our transgressions, and bruised for our iniquities. The correction that brought us peace was on him, and with his stripes we were healed.

even so Christ was once offered to take away the sins of many, and unto them that look for him, shall he appear again, without sin, unto their salvation.

which his own self bare our sins in his body on the tree, that we should be delivered from sin and should live in righteousness. By whose stripes ye were healed.


For thus sayeth the high and excellent, even he that dwelleth in everlastingness, whose name is the holy one: I dwell high above and in the sanctuary, and with him also, that is of a contrite and humble spirit: that I may heal a troubled mind, and a contrite heart.

which humbleth himself to behold the things that are in heaven and earth?

Who remembereth us, when we are in trouble! For his mercy endureth forever.

For though the LORD be high, yet hath he respect unto the lowly; as for the proud, he beholdeth them afar off.

When the Pharisees saw that, they said unto his disciples, "Why eateth your master with publicans and sinners?"

For he hath looked on the poor degree of his handmaiden. Behold, now from henceforth shall all generations call me blessed.

He rose from supper, and laid aside his upper garments, and took a towel, and gird himself.

And when he had so said, he showed unto them his hands and feet, and his side. Then were the disciples glad when they saw the Lord.

After that said he to Thomas, "Bring thy finger hither and see my hands, and bring thy hand and thrust it into my side, and be not faithless, but believing."


Then the Pharisees went out, and held a council against him, how they might destroy him.

and held a counsel, how they might take Jesus by subtlety, and kill him.

when the morning was come, all the chief priests and the elders of the people held a counsel against Jesus, to put him to death,

And they were filled full of madness, and communed one with another, what they might do to Jesus.

And he taught daily in the temple. The high priests and the scribes and the chief of the people, went about to destroy him;

and he went his way, and communed with the high priests and officers, how he might betray him to them.

And therefore the Jews did persecute Jesus, and sought the means to slay him, because he had done these things on the Sabbath day.

Then gathered the high priests and the Pharisees a council and said, "What do we? This man doeth many miracles.

From that day forth they held a counsel together for to put him to death.


Then came to him the Pharisees with the Sadducees also, and did tempt him, desiring him to show them some sign from heaven.

Then came unto him the Pharisees to tempt him, and said to him, "Is it lawful for a man to put away his wife for all manner of causes?"

Then went the Pharisees, and took counsel, how they might tangle him in his words.

And the Pharisees came forth, and began to dispute with him, seeking of him a sign from heaven and tempting him,

And the Pharisees came and asked him a question, whether it were lawful for a man to put away his wife, to prove him.

And they sent unto him certain of the Pharisees with Herod's servants, to take him in his words.

Laying wait for him, and seeking to catch something of his mouth, whereby they might accuse him.

And they watched him, and sent forth spies, which should feign themselves perfect, to take him in his words, and to deliver him unto the power, and authority of the deputy.

And this they said to tempt him: that they might have, whereof to accuse him. Jesus stooped down, and with his finger wrote on the ground.


and drew near and said, "Wilt thou destroy the righteous with the wicked? If there be fifty righteous within the city, wilt thou destroy it and not spare the place for the sake of fifty righteous that are therein? That be far from thee, that thou shouldest do after this manner, to slay the righteous with the wicked, and that the righteous should be as the wicked: that be far from thee. Should not the Judge of all the world do according to right?" read more.
And the LORD said, "If I find in Sodom fifty righteous within the city, I will spare all the place for their sakes." And Abraham answered and said, "Behold, I have taken upon me to speak unto the LORD, and yet am but dust and ashes. What though there lack five of fifty righteous, wilt thou destroy all the city for lack of five?" And he said, "If I find there forty and five I will not destroy them." And he spake unto him yet again, and said, "What if there be forty found there?" And he said, "I will not do it for forty's sake." And he said, "O let not my LORD be angry, that I speak. What if there be found thirty there?" And he said, "I will not do it, if I find thirty there." And he said, "Oh, see, I have begun to speak unto my LORD, what if there be twenty found there?" And he said, "I will not destroy them for twenty's sake." And he said, "O let not my LORD be angry, that I speak yet, but even once more only. What if ten be found there?" And he said, "I will not destroy them for ten's sake."

and tarried behind; himself alone. And there wrestled a man with him unto the breaking of the day. And when he saw that he could not prevail against him, he smote him under the thigh, and the sinew of Jacob's thigh shrank as he wrestled with him. And he said, "Let me go, for the day breaketh." And he said, "I will not let thee go, except thou bless me." read more.
And he said unto him, "What is thy name?" He answered, "Jacob." And he said, "Thou shalt be called Jacob no more, but Israel. For thou hast wrestled with God and with men and hast prevailed." And Jacob asked him, saying, "Tell me thy name." And he said, "Wherefore dost thou ask after my name?" And he blessed him there. And Jacob called the name of the place Peniel, "for I have seen God face to face, and yet is my life reserved."

then went King David and set him down before the LORD and said, "What am I, Lord Jehovah, and what is my kin, that thou shouldest have brought me this far forth? And is this a small thing in thy sight Lord Jehovah, but that thou shouldest speak also of thy servant's house for a great while to come? Is this a law among men Lord Jehovah? And what can David say more unto thee, seeing thou knowest thy servant, Lord Jehovah? read more.
Even for thy word's sake and according to thine own heart hast thou done all these great things to make them known unto thy servant. Wherefore, thou art great O LORD God and there is none like thee, neither is there any God save thou, according to all that we have heard with our ears. And what one people in the earth is like thy people Israel? Which God went and delivered to be his people, and to make him a name, and to show them great and terrible things in the earth, before thy people which thou redeemest to thee out of Egypt, even from the people and from their gods. And thou hast ordained thy people Israel to be thy people forever. And thou, LORD, art their God. And now, LORD God, the thing thou hast said of thy servant and of his house: make it good forever and do as thou hast said. And let thy name be great forever, that men may say, 'The LORD of Hosts is the God of Israel.' And let the house of thy servant David be established before thee. For thou, LORD of Hosts, God of Israel, hast told in the ear of thy servant, saying, "I will build thee a house. And therefore hath thy servant found in his heart to pray this prayer unto thee. And now, Lord Jehovah, thou art the God, and thy words must be true: for thou hast told this goodness unto thy servant. And now go to and bless the household of thy servant, that it may continue forever before thee. For thou, Lord Jehovah, hast said that of thy blessing the house of thy servant shall be blessed forever."

And Solomon stood before the altar of the LORD in the sight of all the congregation of Israel and stretched out his hands to heaven, and said, "LORD God of Israel, there is no God like thee in heaven above or in the earth beneath, that keepest appointment and mercy with thy servants that walk before thee with all their hearts: which also hast kept with thy servants David my father, that thou promisedest him. Thou spakest with thy mouth and hast fulfilled with thine hand, as it is come to pass this day. read more.
And now LORD God of Israel, keep with thy servant David my father, that thou promisedest him, saying, 'Thou shalt not be without one or other before me, sitting on the seat of Israel: Howbeit, if thy children shall take heed to their ways that they walk before me, as thou hast walked before me.' Now then, O Lord God of Israel, let thy word be stable which thou spakest unto thy servant David my father. But indeed can God dwell on the earth? Behold: neither heaven, nor heaven above all heavens are able to contain thee - how much less then this house that I have built? But look to the prayer of thy servant and his supplication, O LORD my God, to give an ear unto the voice and prayer which thy servant prayeth before thee this day, that thine eyes may be open upon this house night and day; and upon the place, of which thou hast said, my name shall be there: that thou hearken unto the prayer which thy servant shall pray in this place. And hearken unto the supplication of thy servant and of thy people Israel which they shall pray in this place. And hear thou, up unto heaven thy dwelling place, and when thou hearest have mercy. And if any man trespass against his neighbour, and his neighbour take an adjuration to adjure him withal, and the adjuration come before thine altar at this house, then hearken thou up to heaven, and work and judge thy servants, that thou condemn the wicked to bring his way upon his head, and justify the righteous to give him according to his righteousness. When thy people Israel be put to the worse before their enemies, because they have sinned against thee, and afterward turn again to thee and praise thy name, and pray and make supplication unto thee in this house: Then hear thou up to heaven and be merciful unto the sin of thy people Israel, and bring thee again unto the land which thou gavest unto their fathers. If heaven be shut up, that there be no rain, because they have sinned against thee: yet if they pray in this place and praise thy name and turn from their sins, through thy scourging of them: then hear thou up to heaven, and be merciful unto the sin of thy servants and of thy people Israel, that thou show them a good way to walk in, and give rain upon thy land that thou hast given unto thy people to inherit. If there chance dearth in the land, pestilence, blasting or withering of corn, or that the fruits be devoured of grasshoppers or caterpillars, or if their enemies besiege them in the land and in their own cities, or whatsoever plague or sickness chance: then hear thou up to heaven thy dwelling place, all the prayers and supplications that shall be made of all men throughout all thy people Israel, which shall knowledge every man the plague of his own heart, and stretch forth his hands unto this house. And be merciful, and work, and give every man according to his ways - even as thou only knowest every man's heart, for thou knowest the hearts of all the children of Adam - that they may fear thee as long as they live upon the earth which thou gavest unto their fathers. And likewise, if a stranger that is not of thy people Israel come out of a far country for thy name's sake - for they shall hear of thy great name and of thy mighty hand and stretched-out arm - and therefore if he come and pray at this place, hear thou up to heaven thy dwelling place and do according to all that the stranger calleth to thee for: that all nations of the earth may know thy name, to fear thee as do thy people Israel, and that it may be known that this house which I have built is called after thy name. And when they go out to battle against their enemies whithersoever thou shalt send them, and shall pray unto the LORD toward the city which thou hast chosen and toward the house that I have built for thy name: hear thou their prayers and supplications, up to heaven, and judge their cause. And finally, when they shall have sinned against thee - for there is no man that sinneth not - and thou art angry with them and hast delivered them to their enemies, that they be carried away prisoners unto the land of their enemies, whether far or near; yet if they turn again unto their hearts in the land where they be in captivity, and return and pray unto thee in the land of them that hold them captive, saying, 'We have sinned and have done wickedly and have trespassed,' and so turn again unto thee with all their hearts and all their souls in the land of their enemies which hold them captive, and pray unto thee, toward the land which thou gavest unto their fathers, and toward the city which thou hast chosen, and the house which I have built for thy name: then hear thou their prayer and supplication up to heaven thy dwelling place, and judge their causes, and be merciful unto thy people that have sinned against thee, and unto all their trespass that they have trespassed against thee, and get them favour in the sight of them that hold them captive that they may have compassion on them. For they be thy people and thine inheritance which thou broughtest out of Egypt, from the furnace of iron. And let thine eyes be open unto the prayer of thy servant and unto the prayer of thy people Israel, to hearken unto them, in all that they call unto thee for. For thou didst separate them to be thine inheritance, above all the nations of the earth, as thou saidest by the hand of Moses thy servant, when thou broughtest our fathers out of Egypt, O Lord Jehovah." And when Solomon had made an end of praying all this prayer and supplication unto the LORD, he arose from before the altar of the LORD and from kneeling on his knees and stretching of his hands up to heaven, and stood and blessed all the congregation of Israel with a loud voice, saying, "Blessed be the LORD that hath given rest unto his people Israel according to all that he promised: so that there is not one word escaped of all the good promises which he promised by the hand of Moses his servant. And the LORD our God be with us, as he was with our fathers, and forsake us not, neither leave us, but that he bow our hearts unto him, to walk in all his ways, and to keep his commandments, ordinances and customs which he commanded our fathers. And these my words which I have prayed before the LORD, be nigh unto the LORD our God day and night, that he defend the cause of his servant and of his people Israel evermore, that all nations of the earth may know that the LORD, he is God and there is none other. And I pray God that your hearts may be sound with the LORD our God, to walk in his ordinances and to keep his laws as we do this day."

And it fortuned, as he was praying in a certain place: when he ceased, one of his disciples said unto him, "Master, teach us to pray; As John taught his disciples." And he said unto them, "When ye pray, say: O Our father which art in heaven, hallowed by thy name. Let thy kingdom come. Thy will, be fulfilled, even in earth as it is in heaven. Our daily bread give us this day evermore. read more.
And forgive us our sins: For even we forgive every man that trespasseth us, and lead us not into temptation; But deliver us from evil. Amen." And he said unto them, "If any of you should have a friend, and should go to him at midnight, and say unto him, 'Friend, lend me three loaves; for a friend of mine is come out of the way to me, and I have nothing to set before him': And he within should answer and say, 'Trouble me not, now is the door shut, and my servants are with me in the chamber, I cannot rise and give them to thee.' I say unto you, Though he would not arise and give him, because he is his friend: Yet because of his importunity he would rise and give him as many as he needed. "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 that asketh, receiveth: and he that seeketh, findeth: and to him that knocketh shall it be opened. If the son shall ask bread of any of you that is a father: will he give him a stone? Or if he ask fish, will he for a fish, give him a serpent? Or if he ask an egg: will he offer him a scorpion? If ye then which are evil, can give good gifts unto your children: How much more shall the father of heaven give a holy spirit to them, that desire it of him?"

He put forth a similitude unto them, signifying that men ought always to pray, and not to be weary, saying, "There was a Judge in a certain city, which feared not God neither regarded man. And there was a certain widow in the same city, which came unto him saying, 'Avenge me of mine adversary.' read more.
And he would not for a while. But afterward he said unto himself, 'Though I fear not God, nor care for man, yet because this widow troubleth me, I will avenge her: lest at the last she come, and hag on me.'" And the Lord said, "Hear what the unrighteous judge sayeth. And shall not God avenge his elect, which cry night and day unto him? Yea though he defer them: I tell you, he will avenge them, and that quickly. Nevertheless, when the son of man cometh, suppose ye that he shall find faith on the earth?"


Is not this the carpenter's son? Is not his mother called Mary? And his brethren be called, James and Joseph and Simon and Judas?

While he yet talked to the people, behold, his mother and his brethren stood without the doors, desiring to speak with him.

And then came his mother and his brethren, and stood without, and sent unto him and called him:

After that, descended he into Capernaum, and his mother, and his brethren, and his disciples: But continued not many days there.

His brethren therefore said unto him, "Get thee hence and go into Jewry that thy disciples may see thy works that thou doest.

For as yet his brethren believed not in him.

Either, have we not power to lead about a sister to wife as well as other apostles, and as the brethren of the Lord, and Cephas?

No other of the apostles saw I, save James the Lord's brother.


and drew near and said, "Wilt thou destroy the righteous with the wicked? If there be fifty righteous within the city, wilt thou destroy it and not spare the place for the sake of fifty righteous that are therein? That be far from thee, that thou shouldest do after this manner, to slay the righteous with the wicked, and that the righteous should be as the wicked: that be far from thee. Should not the Judge of all the world do according to right?" read more.
And the LORD said, "If I find in Sodom fifty righteous within the city, I will spare all the place for their sakes." And Abraham answered and said, "Behold, I have taken upon me to speak unto the LORD, and yet am but dust and ashes. What though there lack five of fifty righteous, wilt thou destroy all the city for lack of five?" And he said, "If I find there forty and five I will not destroy them." And he spake unto him yet again, and said, "What if there be forty found there?" And he said, "I will not do it for forty's sake." And he said, "O let not my LORD be angry, that I speak. What if there be found thirty there?" And he said, "I will not do it, if I find thirty there." And he said, "Oh, see, I have begun to speak unto my LORD, what if there be twenty found there?" And he said, "I will not destroy them for twenty's sake." And he said, "O let not my LORD be angry, that I speak yet, but even once more only. What if ten be found there?" And he said, "I will not destroy them for ten's sake."

and tarried behind; himself alone. And there wrestled a man with him unto the breaking of the day. And when he saw that he could not prevail against him, he smote him under the thigh, and the sinew of Jacob's thigh shrank as he wrestled with him. And he said, "Let me go, for the day breaketh." And he said, "I will not let thee go, except thou bless me." read more.
And he said unto him, "What is thy name?" He answered, "Jacob." And he said, "Thou shalt be called Jacob no more, but Israel. For thou hast wrestled with God and with men and hast prevailed." And Jacob asked him, saying, "Tell me thy name." And he said, "Wherefore dost thou ask after my name?" And he blessed him there. And Jacob called the name of the place Peniel, "for I have seen God face to face, and yet is my life reserved."

then went King David and set him down before the LORD and said, "What am I, Lord Jehovah, and what is my kin, that thou shouldest have brought me this far forth? And is this a small thing in thy sight Lord Jehovah, but that thou shouldest speak also of thy servant's house for a great while to come? Is this a law among men Lord Jehovah? And what can David say more unto thee, seeing thou knowest thy servant, Lord Jehovah? read more.
Even for thy word's sake and according to thine own heart hast thou done all these great things to make them known unto thy servant. Wherefore, thou art great O LORD God and there is none like thee, neither is there any God save thou, according to all that we have heard with our ears. And what one people in the earth is like thy people Israel? Which God went and delivered to be his people, and to make him a name, and to show them great and terrible things in the earth, before thy people which thou redeemest to thee out of Egypt, even from the people and from their gods. And thou hast ordained thy people Israel to be thy people forever. And thou, LORD, art their God. And now, LORD God, the thing thou hast said of thy servant and of his house: make it good forever and do as thou hast said. And let thy name be great forever, that men may say, 'The LORD of Hosts is the God of Israel.' And let the house of thy servant David be established before thee. For thou, LORD of Hosts, God of Israel, hast told in the ear of thy servant, saying, "I will build thee a house. And therefore hath thy servant found in his heart to pray this prayer unto thee. And now, Lord Jehovah, thou art the God, and thy words must be true: for thou hast told this goodness unto thy servant. And now go to and bless the household of thy servant, that it may continue forever before thee. For thou, Lord Jehovah, hast said that of thy blessing the house of thy servant shall be blessed forever."

And Solomon stood before the altar of the LORD in the sight of all the congregation of Israel and stretched out his hands to heaven, and said, "LORD God of Israel, there is no God like thee in heaven above or in the earth beneath, that keepest appointment and mercy with thy servants that walk before thee with all their hearts: which also hast kept with thy servants David my father, that thou promisedest him. Thou spakest with thy mouth and hast fulfilled with thine hand, as it is come to pass this day. read more.
And now LORD God of Israel, keep with thy servant David my father, that thou promisedest him, saying, 'Thou shalt not be without one or other before me, sitting on the seat of Israel: Howbeit, if thy children shall take heed to their ways that they walk before me, as thou hast walked before me.' Now then, O Lord God of Israel, let thy word be stable which thou spakest unto thy servant David my father. But indeed can God dwell on the earth? Behold: neither heaven, nor heaven above all heavens are able to contain thee - how much less then this house that I have built? But look to the prayer of thy servant and his supplication, O LORD my God, to give an ear unto the voice and prayer which thy servant prayeth before thee this day, that thine eyes may be open upon this house night and day; and upon the place, of which thou hast said, my name shall be there: that thou hearken unto the prayer which thy servant shall pray in this place. And hearken unto the supplication of thy servant and of thy people Israel which they shall pray in this place. And hear thou, up unto heaven thy dwelling place, and when thou hearest have mercy. And if any man trespass against his neighbour, and his neighbour take an adjuration to adjure him withal, and the adjuration come before thine altar at this house, then hearken thou up to heaven, and work and judge thy servants, that thou condemn the wicked to bring his way upon his head, and justify the righteous to give him according to his righteousness. When thy people Israel be put to the worse before their enemies, because they have sinned against thee, and afterward turn again to thee and praise thy name, and pray and make supplication unto thee in this house: Then hear thou up to heaven and be merciful unto the sin of thy people Israel, and bring thee again unto the land which thou gavest unto their fathers. If heaven be shut up, that there be no rain, because they have sinned against thee: yet if they pray in this place and praise thy name and turn from their sins, through thy scourging of them: then hear thou up to heaven, and be merciful unto the sin of thy servants and of thy people Israel, that thou show them a good way to walk in, and give rain upon thy land that thou hast given unto thy people to inherit. If there chance dearth in the land, pestilence, blasting or withering of corn, or that the fruits be devoured of grasshoppers or caterpillars, or if their enemies besiege them in the land and in their own cities, or whatsoever plague or sickness chance: then hear thou up to heaven thy dwelling place, all the prayers and supplications that shall be made of all men throughout all thy people Israel, which shall knowledge every man the plague of his own heart, and stretch forth his hands unto this house. And be merciful, and work, and give every man according to his ways - even as thou only knowest every man's heart, for thou knowest the hearts of all the children of Adam - that they may fear thee as long as they live upon the earth which thou gavest unto their fathers. And likewise, if a stranger that is not of thy people Israel come out of a far country for thy name's sake - for they shall hear of thy great name and of thy mighty hand and stretched-out arm - and therefore if he come and pray at this place, hear thou up to heaven thy dwelling place and do according to all that the stranger calleth to thee for: that all nations of the earth may know thy name, to fear thee as do thy people Israel, and that it may be known that this house which I have built is called after thy name. And when they go out to battle against their enemies whithersoever thou shalt send them, and shall pray unto the LORD toward the city which thou hast chosen and toward the house that I have built for thy name: hear thou their prayers and supplications, up to heaven, and judge their cause. And finally, when they shall have sinned against thee - for there is no man that sinneth not - and thou art angry with them and hast delivered them to their enemies, that they be carried away prisoners unto the land of their enemies, whether far or near; yet if they turn again unto their hearts in the land where they be in captivity, and return and pray unto thee in the land of them that hold them captive, saying, 'We have sinned and have done wickedly and have trespassed,' and so turn again unto thee with all their hearts and all their souls in the land of their enemies which hold them captive, and pray unto thee, toward the land which thou gavest unto their fathers, and toward the city which thou hast chosen, and the house which I have built for thy name: then hear thou their prayer and supplication up to heaven thy dwelling place, and judge their causes, and be merciful unto thy people that have sinned against thee, and unto all their trespass that they have trespassed against thee, and get them favour in the sight of them that hold them captive that they may have compassion on them. For they be thy people and thine inheritance which thou broughtest out of Egypt, from the furnace of iron. And let thine eyes be open unto the prayer of thy servant and unto the prayer of thy people Israel, to hearken unto them, in all that they call unto thee for. For thou didst separate them to be thine inheritance, above all the nations of the earth, as thou saidest by the hand of Moses thy servant, when thou broughtest our fathers out of Egypt, O Lord Jehovah." And when Solomon had made an end of praying all this prayer and supplication unto the LORD, he arose from before the altar of the LORD and from kneeling on his knees and stretching of his hands up to heaven, and stood and blessed all the congregation of Israel with a loud voice, saying, "Blessed be the LORD that hath given rest unto his people Israel according to all that he promised: so that there is not one word escaped of all the good promises which he promised by the hand of Moses his servant. And the LORD our God be with us, as he was with our fathers, and forsake us not, neither leave us, but that he bow our hearts unto him, to walk in all his ways, and to keep his commandments, ordinances and customs which he commanded our fathers. And these my words which I have prayed before the LORD, be nigh unto the LORD our God day and night, that he defend the cause of his servant and of his people Israel evermore, that all nations of the earth may know that the LORD, he is God and there is none other. And I pray God that your hearts may be sound with the LORD our God, to walk in his ordinances and to keep his laws as we do this day."

And it fortuned, as he was praying in a certain place: when he ceased, one of his disciples said unto him, "Master, teach us to pray; As John taught his disciples." And he said unto them, "When ye pray, say: O Our father which art in heaven, hallowed by thy name. Let thy kingdom come. Thy will, be fulfilled, even in earth as it is in heaven. Our daily bread give us this day evermore. read more.
And forgive us our sins: For even we forgive every man that trespasseth us, and lead us not into temptation; But deliver us from evil. Amen." And he said unto them, "If any of you should have a friend, and should go to him at midnight, and say unto him, 'Friend, lend me three loaves; for a friend of mine is come out of the way to me, and I have nothing to set before him': And he within should answer and say, 'Trouble me not, now is the door shut, and my servants are with me in the chamber, I cannot rise and give them to thee.' I say unto you, Though he would not arise and give him, because he is his friend: Yet because of his importunity he would rise and give him as many as he needed. "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 that asketh, receiveth: and he that seeketh, findeth: and to him that knocketh shall it be opened. If the son shall ask bread of any of you that is a father: will he give him a stone? Or if he ask fish, will he for a fish, give him a serpent? Or if he ask an egg: will he offer him a scorpion? If ye then which are evil, can give good gifts unto your children: How much more shall the father of heaven give a holy spirit to them, that desire it of him?"

He put forth a similitude unto them, signifying that men ought always to pray, and not to be weary, saying, "There was a Judge in a certain city, which feared not God neither regarded man. And there was a certain widow in the same city, which came unto him saying, 'Avenge me of mine adversary.' read more.
And he would not for a while. But afterward he said unto himself, 'Though I fear not God, nor care for man, yet because this widow troubleth me, I will avenge her: lest at the last she come, and hag on me.'" And the Lord said, "Hear what the unrighteous judge sayeth. And shall not God avenge his elect, which cry night and day unto him? Yea though he defer them: I tell you, he will avenge them, and that quickly. Nevertheless, when the son of man cometh, suppose ye that he shall find faith on the earth?"


And the Pharisees, and scribes murmured, saying, "He received to his company sinners, and eateth with them."

"How doth this fellow so blaspheme? Who can forgive sins, but God only?"

When the Pharisees saw that, they said unto his disciples, "Why eateth your master with publicans and sinners?"

When the Pharisees saw that, they said unto him, "Behold: thy disciples do that which is not lawful to do upon the Sabbath day."

"Why do thy disciples transgress the traditions of the elders? For they wash not their hands, when they eat bread."

And when the scribes and Pharisees saw him eat with publicans and sinners, they said unto his disciples, "How is it that he eateth and drinketh with publicans and sinners?"

And when they saw certain of his disciples eat bread with common hands, that is to say, with unwashen hands, they complained.

And when they saw that, they all grudged saying, "He is gone in to tarry with a man that is a sinner."

The Jews then murmured at him, because he said, "I am that bread which is come down from heaven."


And Jesus said unto him, "Verily I say unto thee, today shalt thou be with me in paradise."

If any man minister unto me, let him follow me: and where I am, there shall also my minister be. And if any man minister unto me, him will my father honour.

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

"Father, I will that they, which thou hast given me, be with me where I am: that they may see my glory which thou hast given me. For thou lovedest me before the making of the world.

Nevertheless we are of good comfort, and had rather to be absent from the body and to be present with the Lord.

I am constrained of two things. I desire to be loosed, and to be with Christ, which thing is best of all:

then shall we which live and remain, be caught up with them also in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so shall we ever be with the Lord.


For why? Thou shalt not leave my soul in hell, neither shalt thou suffer thy holy one to see corruption.

From that time forth, Jesus began to show unto his disciples, how that he must go unto Jerusalem, and suffer many things of the elders, and of the high priests, and of the scribes; and must be killed, and rise again the third day.

and shall deliver him to the gentiles, to be mocked, to be scourged, and to be crucified: and the third day he shall rise again."

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

And as they came down from the hill, he charged them, that they should tell no man what they had seen, till the son of man were risen from death again.

But after that I am risen again I will go into Galilee before you."

Jesus answered, and said unto them, "Destroy this temple, and in three days I will rear it up again."

Nevertheless, I obtained help of God, and continue unto this day witnessing both to small and to great; saying none other things, than those which the prophets and Moses did say should come: That Christ should suffer, and that he should be the first that should rise from death, and should show light unto the people, and to the gentiles."


taking it grievously that they taught the people and preached in Jesus the resurrection from death.

Then came Philip into a city of Samaria, and preached Christ unto them.

And Philip opened his mouth, and began at the same scripture, and preached unto him Jesus.

And straightway he preached Christ in the Synagogues how that he was the son of God.

Ye know the preaching that God sent unto the children of Israel, preaching peace by Jesus Christ, which is Lord over all things;

opening and alleging that Christ must needs have suffered and risen again from death. And that this Jesus was Christ, whom, said he, "I preach to you."

But we preach Christ crucified: unto the Jews, an occasion of falling; and unto the Greeks, foolishness.

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


In the midst of the feast, Jesus went up into the temple, and taught.

For he taught them as one having power, and not as the scribes.

And Jesus went about all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healed all manner of sickness and all manner diseases among the people.

and he opened his mouth, and taught them, saying,

And Jesus went out and saw much people, and had compassion on them, because they were like sheep which had no shepherd. And he began to teach them many things.

And he taught in their synagogues, and was commended of all men.

And he entered into one of the ships, which pertained to Simon, and prayed him, that he would thrust out a little from the land. And he sat down and taught the people out of the ship.

The same came to Jesus by night, and said unto him, "Rabbi, we know that thou art a teacher which art come from God. For no man could do such miracles as thou doest, except God were with him."

and early in the morning came again into the temple. And all the people came unto him; And he sat down, and taught them.


And the apostles returned, and told him what great things they had done. And he took them and went aside into a solitary place, nigh to a city called Bethsaida.

And as soon as he had sent the people away, he went up into a mountain alone to pray. And when night was come he was there himself alone.

Then Jesus went away from thence, and came nigh unto the sea of Galilee, and went up in to a mountain, and sat down there.

And after six days Jesus took Peter and James and John his brother, and brought them up into a high mountain out of the way,

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

And he said unto them, "Come ye apart into the wilderness, and rest awhile." For there were many comers and goers, and that they had no leisure for so much as to eat.

And from thence he rose and went into the borders of Tyre and Sidon, and entered into a house, and would that no man should have known of him: But he could not be hid.

And he gat himself from them, about a stone's cast, and kneeled down, and prayed,


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

And thou Bethlehem Ephrata, art little among the thousands of Judah: Out of thee shall come one, unto me, which shall be the governour in Israel: whose outgoing hath been from the beginning, and from everlasting.

"Father, I will that they, which thou hast given me, be with me where I am: that they may see my glory which thou hast given me. For thou lovedest me before the making of the world.

In the beginning was the word, and the word was with God: and the word was God.

Jesus said unto them, "Verily, verily I say unto you: Yer Abraham was, I am."

And now glorify me, thou father, with thine own self, with the glory which I had with thee yer the world was.

All things are created by him, and in him, and he is before all things, and in him all things have their being.

without father, without mother, without kin, and hath neither beginning of his time, neither yet end of his life: but is likened unto the son of God, and continueth a priest forever.


John answered them, saying, "I baptise with water: but one is come among you, whom ye know not.

Jesus said unto him, "Have I been so long time with you: and yet hast thou not known me? Philip, he that hath seen me, hath seen the father. And how sayest thou then, Show us the father?

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

Jesus answered and said unto her, "If thou knowest the gift of God, and who it is, that sayeth to thee, 'Give me drink': thou wouldest have asked of him, and he would have given thee water of life."

Then said they unto him, "Where is thy father?" Jesus answered, "Ye neither know me, nor yet my father. If ye had known me, ye should have known my father also."

The man answered, and said unto them, "This is a marvelous thing that ye know not whence he is, seeing he opened mine eyes.

And such things will they do unto you, because they have not known the father, neither yet me.

The inhabiters of Jerusalem, and their rulers: because they knew him not, nor yet the voices of the prophets which are read every Sabbath day; they have fulfilled them in condemning him.

All that abide in him, sin not: And all that sin hath not seen him, neither hath known him.


Judas said unto him - not Judas Iscariot - "Lord what is the cause that thou wilt show thyself unto us, and not unto the world?" Jesus answered, and said unto him, "If a man love me and will keep my sayings, my father also will love him, and we will come unto him, and will dwell with him.

"If ye love me, keep my commandments, and I will pray the father: and he shall give you another comforter, that he may abide with you 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 them which love our Lord Jesus Christ in pureness. Amen. {Sent from Rome unto the Ephesians by Tychicus.}

See thou have the example of the wholesome words which thou heardest of me, in faith and love which is in Jesus Christ.

when I hear of thy love and faith, which thou hast toward the Lord Jesus, and toward all saints:

whom ye have not seen and yet love him, in whom even now, though ye see him not, yet ye believe, and rejoice with joy unspeakable and glorious:


And he commanded unto us to preach unto the people and testify, that it is he that is ordained of God, a judge of quick and dead.

teaching them to observe all things, whatsoever I commanded you. And lo, I am with you always even until the end of the world."

And this is his commandment, that we believe on the name of his son Jesus Christ, and love one another, as he gave commandment.

He that hath my commandments and keepeth them, the same is he that loveth me: and he shall be loved of my father, and I will love him, and will show mine own self unto him."

A new commandment give I unto you: that ye love together: as I have loved you, that even so ye love one another.

"If ye love me, keep my commandments,

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

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


He put his sepulchre with the wicked, and with the rich in his death: because he did none iniquity, neither was guile found in his mouth.

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

Ye know the liberality of our Lord Jesus Christ, which though he were rich, yet for your sakes became poor: that ye through his poverty might be made rich.

And there were two thieves crucified with him, one on the right hand, and another on the left hand.

For I say unto you that, yet, that which is written must be performed in me: for those things which are written of me have an end."

Because of his humbleness, he was not esteemed. Who shall declare his generation? for his life is taken from the earth."

Nevertheless, he made himself of no reputation, and took on him the shape of a servant, and became like unto men, and was found in his apparel as a man. He humbled himself and became obedient unto the death, even the death of the cross.


Is not this that carpenter: Mary's son, the brother of James, and Joseph and of Judas and Simon? And are not his sisters here with us?" And they were offended by the reason of him.

And blessed is he that is not offended by me."

But we preach Christ crucified: unto the Jews, an occasion of falling; and unto the Greeks, foolishness.

For he is the sanctifying, and stone to stumble at, the rock to fall upon, a snare and net to both the houses: to Israel, and the inhabiters of Jerusalem.

And they were offended by him. Then Jesus said unto them, "A prophet is not without honour, save in his own country, and among his own kin."

And wherefore? Because they sought it not by faith: but as it were, by the works of the law. For they have stumbled at the stumbling stone.

and a stone to stumble at, and a rock to offend them which stumble at the word, and believe not that whereon they were set.


When Jesus had thus said, he was troubled in the spirit, and testified saying, "Verily, verily I say unto you, that one of you shall betray me."

He was despised and cast out of men's company; and one that had suffered sorrow, and had experience of infirmity. And we were as one that had hid his face from him.

and looked up to heaven and sighted, and said unto him, "Ephphatha," that is to say, "Be opened."

and he sighed in his spirit and said, "Why doth this generation seek a sign? Verily I say unto you, there shall no sign be given unto this generation."

And when he was come near, he beheld the city, and wept on it,

When Jesus saw her weep, and the Jews also weep, which came with her; He groaned in the spirit, and was troubled in himself,

And Jesus wept.

"Now is my soul troubled. And what shall I say, 'Father deliver me from this hour?' But therefore came I unto this hour.


This we must remember, that our old man is crucified with him also, that the body of sin might utterly be destroyed; that henceforth we should not be servants of sin.

I am crucified with Christ. I live verily, yet now not I, but Christ liveth in me. For the life which I now live in the flesh, I live by the faith of the son of God, which loved me, and gave himself for me.

Wherefore, if ye be dead with Christ from ordinances of the world: Why as though ye yet lived in the world, are ye led with traditions of them that say

As it is written, "For thy sake are we killed all day long, and are counted as sheep appointed to be slain."

For we which live, are always delivered unto death for Jesus' sake, that the life also of Jesus might appear in our mortal flesh.

It is a true saying: If we be dead with him, we also shall live with him;


Then said Jesus unto them, "Yet am I a little while with you, and then go I unto him that sent me.

"Ye have heard how I said unto you, 'I go and come again unto you.' If ye loved me, ye would verily rejoice, because I said I go unto the father. For the father is greater than I.

But now go I my way to him that sent me, and none of you asketh me, 'Whither goest thou?'

And now am I no more in the world, but they are in the world, and I come to thee. Holy father, keep in thine own name them which thou hast given me, that they may be one as we are.

Dear children, yet a little while am I with you. Ye shall seek me, and as I said unto the Jews, 'Whither I go, thither can ye not come.' Also to you say I now.

Of righteousness, because I go to my father, and ye shall see me no more:

"After a while ye shall not see me, and again after a while ye shall see me: For I go to the father."

"I went out from the father, and came into the world: and I leave the world again, and go to the father."


These words have I spoken unto you that in me ye might have peace. For in the world shall ye 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 unto her, "Weep not."

And he said unto his disciples, "Let not your hearts be troubled: believe in God, and believe in me.

"I will not leave you comfortless, but will come to you.

Then Jesus turned him about, and beheld her, saying, "Daughter, be of good comfort, thy faith hath made thee safe." And she was made whole even that same hour.

As soon as Jesus heard that word spoken, he said unto the ruler of the Synagogue, "Be not afraid, only believe."

Our Lord Jesus Christ himself, and God our father, which hath loved us, and hath 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 cometh, when no man can work.

But last of all, he sent unto them his own son, saying, 'They will fear my son.'

For I came down from heaven: not to do mine own will, but his will which hath sent me.

I know him: For I am of him, and he hath sent me."

Jesus said unto them, "If God were your father, then would ye have loved me. For I proceeded forth and come from God. Neither came I of myself, but he sent me.

say ye then to him, whom the father hath sanctified, and sent into the world, 'Thou blasphemest, because I said I am the son of God?'

For I have given unto them the words which thou gavest me, and they have received them, and know surely that I came out from thee: and do believe that thou didst send me.

that they all may be one, as thou father art in me, and I in thee; that they may be also one in us, that the world may believe that thou hast sent me.


Ought not Christ to have suffered these things, and to enter into his glory?"

For I say unto you that, yet, that which is written must be performed in me: for those things which are written of me have an end."

And he began to teach them, how that the son of man must suffer many things, and should be reproved of the elders and of the high priests and scribes, and should be killed, and after three days arise again.

saying that the son of man must suffer many things, and be reproved of the elders, and of the high priests and scribes, and be slain, and the third day rise again.

Notwithstanding, I must be baptised with a baptism. And how am I pained till it be ended?

saying that the son of man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men, and be crucified, and the third day rise again."

and said unto them, "Thus is it written, and thus it behooved Christ to suffer, and to rise again from death the third day.

And as Moses lift up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the son of man be lift up,


Ought not Christ to have suffered these things, and to enter into his glory?"

For I say unto you that, yet, that which is written must be performed in me: for those things which are written of me have an end."

And he began to teach them, how that the son of man must suffer many things, and should be reproved of the elders and of the high priests and scribes, and should be killed, and after three days arise again.

saying that the son of man must suffer many things, and be reproved of the elders, and of the high priests and scribes, and be slain, and the third day rise again.

Notwithstanding, I must be baptised with a baptism. And how am I pained till it be ended?

saying that the son of man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men, and be crucified, and the third day rise again."

and said unto them, "Thus is it written, and thus it behooved Christ to suffer, and to rise again from death the third day.

And as Moses lift up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the son of man be lift up,


Wherefore God hath exalted him, and given him a name above all names: That in the name of Jesus should every knee bow, both of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under earth; and that all tongues should confess that Jesus Christ is the Lord unto the praise of God the father.

For unto us a child is born, and unto us a son is given. Upon his shoulders shall the kingdom lie, and he shall be called with his own name, "Wonderful, the giver of counsel, the mighty God, the Everlasting Father, the Prince of peace."

And hath on his vesture and on his thigh, a name written, "King of Kings, and Lord of lords."

and is more excellent than the angels, inasmuch as he hath by inheritance obtained a more excellent name than have they.

Lo: thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and shalt bear a son, and shalt call his name Jesus.

His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew but himself.


"Tell ye the daughter of Zion, Behold, thy King cometh unto thee, meek, and sitting upon an ass, and a colt the foal of an ass used to the yoke."

I Paul myself beseech you by the meekness and softness of Christ, which when I am present among you, am of no reputation, but am bold toward you being absent.

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

He suffered wrong and was evil entreated, and yet opened not his mouth: he was as a sheep led to be slain: and as a lamb before his shearer, he was dumb and opened not his mouth.

Then said Jesus unto him, "Put up thy sword into his sheath. For all they that lay hands on the sword, shall perish with the sword.

which when he was reviled, reviled not again: when he suffered, he threatened not: but committed the cause to him that judgeth righteously,


and from Jesus Christ which is a faithful witness, and first begotten of the dead: and Lord over the kings of the earth. Unto him that loved us and washed us from our sins in his own blood,

I give thee charge in the sight of God, which quickeneth all things, and before Jesus Christ, which under Pontius Pilate witnessed a good witnessing,

Pilate said unto him, "Art thou a King then?" Jesus answered, "Thou sayest that I am a King. For this cause was I born, and for this cause came I into the world, that I should bear witness unto the truth. And all that are of the truth hear my voice."

Behold, I shall give him for a witness among the folk, for a Prince and Captain unto the people.

Verily, verily I say unto thee, we speak that we know, and testify that we have seen: And ye receive not our witness.

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

Jesus answered and said unto them, "Though I bear record of myself, yet my record is true: for I know whence I came and whither I go. But ye cannot tell whence I come, and whither I go.


For a certain woman, whose daughter had a foul spirit, heard of him, and came and fell down at his feet.

And, lo, there came a leper and worshipped him saying, "Master, if thou wilt, thou canst make me clean."

While he thus spake unto them, behold, there came a certain ruler, and worshipped him saying, "My daughter is even now deceased: but come and lay thy hand on her, and she shall live."

Then she came and worshipped him, saying, "Master, help me."

Then came to him the mother of Zebedee's children with her sons, worshipping him, and desiring a certain thing of him.

And behold, there came unto him one of the rulers of the Synagogue, whose name was Jairus: and when he saw him, he fell down at his feet,

And he said, "Lord, I believe," and worshipped him.


I will raise them up a prophet from among their brethren like unto thee and will put my words into his mouth and he shall speak unto them all that I shall command him.

For Moses said unto the fathers, 'A prophet shall the Lord your God raise up unto you, even of your brethren, like unto me: him shall ye hear in all things whatsoever he shall say unto you.

For I have given unto them the words which thou gavest me, and they have received them, and know surely that I came out from thee: and do believe that thou didst send me.

I have many things to say, and to judge of you. But he that sent me is true. And I speak in the world, those things which I have heard of him."

For I have not spoken of myself: but the father which sent me, he gave me a commandment what I should say, and what I should speak.

Believest thou not that I am in the father, and the father in me? The words that I speak unto you, I speak not of myself: but the father that dwelleth in me is he that doeth the works.

He that loveth me not, keepeth not my sayings. And the words which ye hear are not mine, but the father's, which sent me.


I will raise them up a prophet from among their brethren like unto thee and will put my words into his mouth and he shall speak unto them all that I shall command him.

For Moses said unto the fathers, 'A prophet shall the Lord your God raise up unto you, even of your brethren, like unto me: him shall ye hear in all things whatsoever he shall say unto you.

For I have given unto them the words which thou gavest me, and they have received them, and know surely that I came out from thee: and do believe that thou didst send me.

I have many things to say, and to judge of you. But he that sent me is true. And I speak in the world, those things which I have heard of him."

For I have not spoken of myself: but the father which sent me, he gave me a commandment what I should say, and what I should speak.

Believest thou not that I am in the father, and the father in me? The words that I speak unto you, I speak not of myself: but the father that dwelleth in me is he that doeth the works.

He that loveth me not, keepeth not my sayings. And the words which ye hear are not mine, but the father's, which sent me.


After that time shall the branch of the LORD be beautiful and mighty, and the fruit of the earth shall be fair and pleasant for those Israelites that shall spring thereof.

There shall come a rod out of the stock of Jesse, and a branch shall spring out of his root.

"Behold, the time cometh, sayeth the LORD, that I will raise up the righteous Branch of David, which shall bear rule, and discuss matters with wisdom, and shall set up equity and righteousness again in the earth.

Behold, the days will come saith the LORD, that I will stir up unto David a righteous branch, and he shall reign a king, and shall be wise, and shall do equity and justice in the earth.

"'Hear O Joshua thou high priest: thou and thy friends that dwell before thee, for they are wondrous people. Behold, I will bring forth the branch of my servant:

And Jesus said unto him, "Verily I say unto thee, today shalt thou be with me in paradise."

Then said Jesus, "Father forgive them, for they know not what they do." And they parted his raiment, and cast lots.

Then said he to the disciple, "Behold thy mother." And from that hour the disciple took her for his own.

And about the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying, "Eli Eli lama sabacthani?" That is to say, "My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?"

After that, when Jesus perceived that all things were performed, that the scripture might be fulfilled, he said, "I thirst."

As soon as Jesus had received of the vinegar, he said, "It is finished," and bowed his head, and gave up the ghost.

And Jesus cried with a great voice and said, "Father, into thy hands I commend my spirit." And when he thus had said, he gave up the ghost.


And the King shall answer and say unto them, 'Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it to me.'

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

And whosoever receiveth such a 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 he fell to the earth, and heard a voice saying to him, "Saul, Saul, why persecutest thou me?"

Which hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear son,

"Behold my child, whom I have chosen, my beloved in whom my soul delighteth: I will put my spirit on him, and he shall show judgment to the Gentiles.

While he yet spake, behold, a bright cloud shadowed them. And behold, there came a voice out of the cloud, saying, "This is my dear son, in whom I delight; hear him."

And there came a voice from heaven, "Thou art my dear son, in whom I delight."

to the praise of the glory of his grace, wherewith he hath made us accepted in the beloved.

Even so, likewise, Christ glorified not himself, to be made the high priest: but he that said unto him. "Thou art my son, this day begat I thee."

Thou hast loved righteousness, and hated iniquity; wherefore God, even thy God, hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows.

He saw also, that there was no man which had pity thereof, or was grieved at it. And he held him by his own power, and cleaved to his own righteousness.

And righteousness shall be the girdle of his loins, and faithfulness the girdle of his reins.

"I the LORD have called thee in righteousness, and led thee by the hand. Therefore will I also defend thee, and give thee for a covenant of the people, and to be the light of the Gentiles.


And again when he bringeth in the first begotten son into the world, he saith, "And all the angels of God shall worship him."

Then they that were in the ship came and worshipped him, saying, "Of a truth thou art the son of God."

And as they went to tell his disciples: behold, Jesus met them, saying, "All hail." They came and held him by the feet and worshipped him.

and went into the house, and found the child with Mary his mother, and knelt down, and worshipped him: and opened their treasures, and offered unto him gifts; gold, frankincense and myrrh.

And they worshipped him, and returned to Jerusalem with great joy.

And when he had taken the book, the four beasts and twenty four elders fell down before the lamb, having harps and golden vials full of odours, which are the prayers of saints,


Whosoever denieth the son, the same hath not the father.

I say unto you, Whosoever confesseth me before men, even him shall the son of man confess also before the angels of God.

For if thou shalt knowledge with thy mouth that Jesus is the Lord, and shalt believe with thine heart that God raised him up from death, thou shalt be safe.

Whosoever therefore shall knowledge me before men, him will I knowledge also before my father which is in heaven.

and that all tongues should confess that Jesus Christ is the Lord unto the praise of God the father.

Whosoever confesseth that Jesus is the son of God, in him dwelleth God, and he in God.


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

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

Now hath he obtained a more excellent office, inasmuch as he is the mediator of a better testament, which was made for better promises.

And for this cause is he the mediator of the new testament, that through death which chanced for the redemption of those transgressions that were in the first testament, they which were called might receive the promise of eternal inheritance.

For Christ is not entered into the holy places, that are made with hands, which are but similitudes of true things: but is entered into very heaven, for to appear now in the sight of God for us.

My little children, these things write I unto you, that ye should sin not: if, though, any man sin, yet we have an Advocate with the father, even Jesus Christ, which is righteous.


And he is the head of the body, that is, to wit, of the congregation: he is the beginning and first begotten of the dead, that in all things he might have the preeminence.

And hath put all things under his feet, and hath made him above all things, the head of the congregation:

But let us follow the truth in love, and in all things grow in him which is the head, that is to say Christ,

For the husband is the wife's head, even as Christ is the head of the congregation, and the same is the saviour of the body.

and holdeth not the head: whereof all the body by joints and couples receiveth nourishment, and is knit together, and increaseth with the increasing that cometh of God.


Either, remember ye not, that your bodies are the members of Christ? Shall I now take the members of Christ, and make them the members of a harlot? God forbid.

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

Even so, ye my brethren; ye also are made dead as concerning the law by the body of Christ, that ye should be coupled to another - I mean to him that is risen again from death - that we should bring forth fruit unto God.

For I am jealous over you with godly jealousy. For I coupled you to one man, to make you a chaste virgin to Christ:

Let therefore abide in you that same which ye heard at the beginning. If that which ye heard at the beginning shall remain in you, then ye also shall continue in the son, and in the father.


Hereafter shall the son of man sit on the righthand of the power of God." Then said they all, "Art thou then the son of God?" He said to them, "Ye say that I am."

And 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, yet 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 had known my father also. And now ye know him. And ye have seen him." Philip said unto him, "Lord, show us the father and it sufficeth us." Jesus said unto him, "Have I been so long time with you: and yet hast thou not known me? Philip, he that hath seen me, hath seen the father. And how sayest thou then, Show us the father? read more.
Believest thou not that I am in the father, and the father in me? The words that I speak unto you, I speak not of myself: but the father that dwelleth in me is he that doeth the works.

All things that the father hath are mine. Therefore said I unto you that he shall take of mine and show unto you.


For in him dwelleth all the fullness of the Godhead bodily,

And of his fullness have all we received, even grace for grace.

And hath put all things under his feet, and hath made him above all things, the head of the congregation: which is his body, and fullness of him, that filleth all in all things.

till we, everyone - in the unity of faith, and knowledge of the son of God - grow up unto a perfect man, after the measure of age which is of the fullness of Christ:

For it pleased the father that in him should all fullness dwell,


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

And we are witnesses of all things which he did in the land of the Jews and at Jerusalem: whom they slew, and hung on tree. Him God raised up the third day, and showed him openly, not to all the people, but unto us witnesses chosen before of God, which ate and drank with him, after he arose from death.

and declared to be the son of God with power of the holy ghost, that sanctifieth, since the time that Jesus Christ our Lord rose again from death:

him have ye taken by the hands of unrighteous persons, after he was delivered by the determinate counsel and foreknowledge of God, and have crucified and slain him whom God hath raised up: and loosed the sorrows of death, because it was impossible that he should be holden of it.

but ye denied the holy and just, and desired a murderer to be given you, and killed the Lord of life whom God hath raised from death, of the which we are witnesses:

And Paul, as his manner was, went in unto them: and three Sabbath days declared out of the scripture unto them, opening and alleging that Christ must needs have suffered and risen again from death. And that this Jesus was Christ, whom, said he, "I preach to you."


After that, poured he water into a basin, and began to wash his disciples' feet, and to wipe them with the towel wherewith he was gird.

Rejoice thou greatly, O daughter Zion; be glad, O daughter Jerusalem. For lo, thy King cometh unto thee, even the righteous and Saviour: Lowly and simple is he, he rideth upon an ass, and upon the foal of an ass.

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

Ye know the liberality of our Lord Jesus Christ, which though he were rich, yet for your sakes became poor: that ye through his poverty might be made rich.

He humbled himself and became obedient unto the death, even the death of the cross.


for by him were all things created, things that are in heaven, and things that are in earth: things visible, and things invisible: whether they be majesty or lordship, either rule or power.

yet unto us is there but one God, which is the father, of whom are all things, and we in him: and one Lord Jesus Christ, by whom are all things, and we by him.

All things were made by it, and without it was made no thing, that was made.

and to make all men see what the fellowship of the mystery is, which from the beginning of the world hath been hid in God, which made all things through Jesus Christ,

God, in time past, diversely and many ways, spake unto the fathers by prophets: but in these last days he hath spoken unto us by his son, whom he hath made heir of all things: by whom also he made the world.


And he said, "Go into the city, unto such a man, and say to him, The master saith, my time is almost at hand: I will keep mine Easter at thy house with my disciples."

Then came he to his disciples and said unto them, "Sleep henceforth, and take your rest. Take heed: the hour is at hand, and the son of man shall be betrayed into the hands of sinners.

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

And Jesus answered them saying, "The hour is come that the son of man must be glorified.

Before the feast of Easter, when Jesus knew that his hour was come, that he should depart out of this world unto the father; When he loved his which were in the world, unto the end he loved them;

These words 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, "He casteth out devils, by the power of the chief devil."

But when the Pharisees heard that, they said, "This fellow driveth the devils no other wise out, but by the help of Beelzebub the chief of the devils."

But some of them said, "He casteth out devils by the power of Beelzebub, the chief of the devils."

And many other things despitefully said they against him.

Because they said, "He had an unclean spirit."

Do not they speak evil of that good name after which ye be named?


But unto them which are called, both of Jews and Greeks, we preach Christ the power of God, and the wisdom of God.

And the child grew and waxed strong in spirit, and was filled with wisdom, and the grace of God was with him.

and came in to his own country, and taught them in their synagogues, insomuch that they were astonished, and said, "Whence cometh all this wisdom and power unto him?

And on him shall light the spirit of the LORD: the spirit of wisdom and of understanding, the spirit of counsel and of strength, the spirit of knowledge and of reverence, and it shall make him savour of the fear of the LORD

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


In the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried, saying, "If any man thirst, let him come unto me and drink.

And about the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying, "Eli Eli lama sabacthani?" That is to say, "My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?"
