Now, in the eighteenth year of King Jeroboam son of Nebat, began Abijah to reign over Judah. Three years, reigned he in Jerusalem, - and, the name of his mother, was Maachah, daughter of Abishalom. And he walked in all the sins of his father which he had done before him, - and his heart was not blameless with Yahweh his God, like the heart of David his father. read more.
But, for the sake of David, did Yahweh his God give him a lamp, in Jerusalem, - by raising up a son of his after him, and by suffering Jerusalem to stand; because David did that which was right in the eyes of Yahweh, - and turned not aside from anything that he commanded him, all the days of his life, save only in the matter of Uriah the Hittite. And there was, war, between Rehoboam and Jeroboam, all the days of his life. Now, the rest of the story of Abijah and all that he did, are, they, not written in the book of Chronicles of the Kings of Judah? And there was, war, between Abijah and Jeroboam. So then Abijah slept with his fathers, and they buried him in the city of David, - and, Asa his son, reigned, in his stead.

So then Rehoboam appointed Abijah son of Maacah as head, to be chief ruler among his brethren, - yea that he might make him king.


So Ahab slept with his fathers, - and, Ahaziah his son, reigned, in his stead.

Then, said Ahaziah son of Ahab, unto Jehoshaphat, Let, my servants, go with, thy servants, in the ships, - but Jehoshaphat did not consent.

Ahaziah son of Ahab, began to reign over Israel, in Samaria, in the seventeenth year of Jehoshaphat king of Judah, - and reigned over Israel, two years. And he did the thing that was wicked in the eyes of Yahweh, - and went in the way of his father, and in the way of his mother, and in the way of Jeroboam son of Nebat, who caused, Israel, to sin. Yea he served Baal, and bowed down to him, - and provoked to anger Yahweh, God of Israel, according to all that his father had done.

Yet, after this, did Jehoshaphat king of Judah join himself with Ahaziah king of Israel, - he, was lawless in his doings; and he joined with him, to make ships to go unto Tarshish, - and they made ships in Ezion-geber, Then prophesied, Eliezer son of Dodavahu of Mareshah, against Jehoshaphat, saying, - Because thou hast joined thyself with Ahaziah, Yahweh hath broken in pieces thy works. So the ships were wrecked, and were not able to go unto Tarshish.


In the twelfth year of Joram son of Ahab king of Israel, did Ahaziah son of Jehoram king of Judah, begin to reign. Two and twenty years old, was Ahaziah when he began to reign, - and, one year, reigned he in Jerusalem, - and, his mother's name, was Athaliah, daughter of Omri, king of Israel; And he walked in the way of the house of Ahab, and did the thing that was wicked in the eyes of Yahweh, like the house of Ahab, - for, son-in-law of the house of Ahab, was, he. read more.
And he went with Joram son of Ahab, to make war against Hazael king of Syria, in Ramoth-gilead, - and the Syrians wounded Joram. So Joram the king returned to get healed in Jezreel, from the wounds wherewith the Syrians had wounded him in Ramah, when he fought with Hazael king of Syria, - and, Ahaziah son of Jehoram king of Judah, went down to see Joram son of Ahab in Jezreel, because he, was sick.

So Jehu rode in a chariot, and went towards Jezreel, for, Joram, was lying there, - and, Ahaziah king of Judah, had come down to see Joram. Now, the watchman, was standing upon the tower, in Jezreel, so he saw the great company of Jehu, when he came, and said - A great company, can I see! Then said Jehoram - Take a horseman and send to meet them, that he may say - Is it peace? So the horseman went to meet him, and said - Thus, saith the king, Is it peace? And Jehu said - What hast thou to do with peace? turn thee behind me. And the watchman told, saying, The messenger came up to them, but hath not turned back. read more.
Then sent he a second horseman, and he came up to them and said, Thus, saith the king, Is it peace? And Jehu said - What hast thou to do with peace? turn thee behind me. And the watchman told, saying, He came up to them, but hath not turned back, - and, the driving, is like the driving of Jehu son of Nimshi; for, with mad haste, doth he drive. Then said Jehoram, Harness! So one harnessed his chariot, - and Jehoram king of Israel and Ahaziah king of Judah went forth, each man in his chariot, yea they went forth to meet Jehu, and came upon him in the heritage of Naboth the Jezreelite. And it came to pass, when Jehoram saw Jehu, that he said - Is it peace, Jehu? And he said - What can be the peace, while thy mother Jezebel's harlotries and her incantations do so abound? Then Jehoram turned his hands, and fled, - and said unto Ahaziah - Treachery! O Ahaziah! And, Jehu, bent his bow, and smote Jehoram, between his arms, - and the arrow came out at his heart, - and he sank down in his chariot. Then said he unto Bidkar his officer, Take him up, and cast him forth, into the field-portion of Naboth the Jezreelite, - for remember, when I and thou were riding as a couple together after Ahab his father, that, Yahweh, laid upon him this doom: Surely, the blood of Naboth and the blood of his sons, have I lately seen, declareth Yahweh, therefore will I requite thee in this portion, declareth Yahweh. Now, therefore, take him up, and cast him forth into the portion, according to the word of Yahweh. And, Ahaziah king of Judah, saw it, and fled by the way of the garden house, - and Jehu pursued him, and said - Him also! smite him in the chariot! It was in the ascent of Gur, which is by Ibleam. And he fled to Mepidgo, and died there. And his servants conveyed him in a chariot and brought him into Jerusalem, - and buried him in his sepulchre, with his fathers, in the city of David. Now it was, in the eleventh year of Joram son of Ahab, that Ahaziah began to reign over Judah.





And there had not been kept, a passover like it, in Israel, since the days of Samuel the prophet, - yea, none of the kings of Israel, had kept such a passover as was kept by Josiah and the priests and the Levites and all Judah and Israel that were present, and the inhabitants of Jerusalem.

For, the multitude of the people, many out of Ephraim and Manasseh, Issachar and Zebulun, had not purified themselves, for they did eat the passover, otherwise than as was written, - for Hezekiah prayed for them, saying, May Yahweh the Good, put a propitiatory-covering about every one who hath prepared, his heart, to seek God, even Yahweh, God of his fathers, - though not according to the purification of the sanctuary! And Yahweh hearkened unto Hezekiah, and healed the people. read more.
And so the sons of Israel who were found in Jerusalem kept the festival of unleavened cakes seven days, with great rejoicing, - and the Levites and the priests, were offering praise unto Yahweh day by day, with loud instruments, unto Yahweh. And Hezekiah spake unto the heart of all the Levites who were giving good instruction respecting Yahweh, - and they did eat the appointed feast seven days, sacrificing the peace-offerings, and offering praise unto Yahweh, God of their fathers. Then all the convocation took counsel, to keep seven days more, - and they kept seven days, with rejoicing. For, Hezekiah king of Judah, presented to the convocation, a thousand bullocks and seven thousand sheep, and, the rulers, presented to the convocation, a thousand bullocks and ten thousand sheep,-and, priests in great numbers, hallowed themselves. So all the convocation of Judah, and the priests and the Levites, and all the convocation that came in out of Israel, rejoiced, - also the sojourners who were coming in out of the land of Israel, and the dwellers in Judah. Thus was there great rejoicing, in Jerusalem, - for, since the days of Solomon son of David king of Israel, there had not been the like of this, in Jerusalem.

also throughout the cities of Manasseh and Ephraim and Simeon, even as far as Naphtali, - searched he their houses, round about.


But it came to pass, after this, that Ben-hadad king of Syria gathered together all his host, - and came up and laid siege against Samaria. And there came to be, a great famine, in Samaria, and lo! they continued the siege against it, - until an ass's head was sold for eighty pieces of silver, and one pint of dove's dung for five pieces of silver. And so it was that, as the king of Israel was passing by on the wall, a woman, made outcry unto him, saying - Save, my lord, O king! read more.
And he said - If Yahweh do not save thee, whence should I save thee? out of the threshing-floor or out of the wine-press? And the king said to her - What aileth thee? And she said - This woman, said unto me - Give thy son, that we may eat him, to-day, and, my son, will we eat to-morrow. So we cooked my son, and did eat him, - and I said unto her, on the next day, Give thy son, that we may eat him; But she had hid her son. And it came to pass, when the king heard the words of the woman, that he rent his clothes, while yet he was passing by upon the wall, - so the people looked, and lo! sackcloth upon his flesh, within. And he said - So, let God do to me, and, so, let him add, - if the head of Elisha son of Shaphat remain on him, to-day! Now, Elisha, being seated in his house, and, the elders, seated with him, - when he had sent a man from before him, ere yet the messenger could come in unto him, he himself, said unto the elders - Do ye see how this son of a murderer hath sent to take away my head? See! when the messenger is coming in, close ye the door, and press him back with the door, is not the sound of his lord's feet behind him? While yet he was speaking with them, lo! the messenger, coming down unto him, - and he said, - Lo! this, is a calamity from Yahweh, why should I wait for Yahweh, any longer?


And there was, war, between Asa and Baasha king of Israel, all their days.



And it came to pass, after many days, that, the word of Yahweh, came unto Elijah, in the third year, saying, - Go, shew thyself unto Ahab, that I may send rain upon the face of the ground. And Elijah went, to show himself unto Ahab. Now, the famine, was severe in Samaria. And Ahab had called for Obadiah, who was over his house. Now, Obadiah, was one who revered Yahweh, exceedingly. read more.
And so it came to pass, when Jezebel was cutting off the prophets of Yahweh, that Obadiah took a hundred prophets, and hid them by fifties in caves, and sustained them, with bread and water. So then Ahab said unto Obadiah, Go, and let us pass throughout the land, unto all the fountains of water, and unto all the ravines, peradventure we may find grass, and save alive horse and mule, and not have more of the beasts cut off. So they divided to them the land, to pass through it, - Ahab, went one way, by himself, and, Obadiah, went another way, by himself.




Now, the king of Syria, was making war against Israel, - so he took counsel with his servants, saying - In such and such a place, shall be my encampment. The man of God, therefore, sent unto the king of Israel, saying - Beware of passing by this place, - for, thither, are the Syrians coming down. So the king of Israel sent unto the place whereof the man of God had spoken to him and warned him, and was on his guard there, - not once nor twice read more.
Then was the heart of the king of Syria disquieted concerning this thing, - and he called his servants, and said unto them, Will ye not tell me, who of our men are for the king of Israel? Then said one of his servants, None, my lord O king, - but, Elisha, the prophet, who is in Israel, telleth the king of Israel the words which thou speakest in thy bed-chamber. And he said - Go, and see where he is, that I may send and take him. And it was told him, saying - Lo! in Dothan. Therefore sent he thither - horses and chariots, and a strong force, - and they came in by night, and encompassed the city. And, when the attendant of the man of God arose early and went forth, lo! a force surrounding the city, with horses and chariots. Then said his young man unto him - Alas! my lord, what shall we do? And he said - Do not fear, - for, more, are, they who are with us, than, they who are with them. Then prayed Elisha, and said, O Yahweh! open, I beseech thee, his eyes, that he may see. And Yahweh opened the eyes of the young man, and he saw, and lo! the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire, round about Elisha. And, when they came down to him, Elisha prayed unto Yahweh, and said - Smite, I beseech thee, this people, with sudden blindness. And he smote them with sudden blindness, according to the word of Elisha. Then Elisha said unto them - This, is not the way, neither is, this, the city, follow me, that I may lead you unto the man, whom ye would secure! So he led them to Samaria. And it came to pass, when they had entered Samaria, that Elisha said, O Yahweh! open the eyes of these men, that they may see! And Yahweh opened their eyes, and they saw, and lo! they were in the midst of Samaria! Then said the king of Israel unto Elisha, when he saw them, - Shall I smite - shall I smite, my father? And he said - Thou shalt not smite. Them whom thou hadst taken captive with thy sword and with thy bow, wouldst, thou, have been smiting? Set bread and water before them, that they may eat and drink, and go their way unto their lord. And he made for them a great feast, and, when they had eaten and drunk, he let them go, and they went their way unto their lord. So then, troops of Syrians came again, no more, into the land of Israel.


And there was, war, between Rehoboam and Jeroboam, continually.


And the king of Assyria brought men from Babylon, and from Cuthah, and from Avvah, and from Hamath, and from Sepharvaim, and caused them to dwell in the cities of Samaria, instead of the sons of Israel, - so they took possession of Samaria, and dwelt in the cities thereof.


Now, the rest of the story of Abijah and all that he did, are, they, not written in the book of Chronicles of the Kings of Judah? And there was, war, between Abijah and Jeroboam.




Now, Peter, was sitting without, in the court; and there came unto him a certain female servant, saying - Thou also, wast with Jesus, the Galilaean. But, he, denied before all, saying - I know not what thou sayest. And, when he went out into the porch, another female saw him, and said unto them who were there - This, one was with Jesus the Nazarene. read more.
And, again, he denied, with an oath - I know not the man. And, after a little, the by-standers, coming forward, said unto Peter: Truly, thou also, art, from among them, for, thy very speech, maketh thee, manifest. Then, began he to be cursing and swearing - I know not the man! And, straightway, a cock crowed. And Peter was put in mind of the declaration of Jesus, of his having said - Before a cock crow, thrice, wilt thou utterly deny me; and, going forth outside, he wept bitterly.

And, they who secured Jesus, led him away unto Caiaphas the High-priest, where the Scribes and the Elders gathered themselves together. Now, Peter, was following him afar off, unto the court of the High-priest, - and, entering within, was sitting with the attendants, to see the end.

And, Peter, being, below in the court, there cometh one of the maid-servants of the High-priest; and, seeing Peter warming himself, having looked at him, saith - And, thou, wast, with the Nazarene - with Jesus. But, he, denied, saying - I neither know him , nor do I well understand what, thou, sayest; and went out into the porch. read more.
And, the maid-servant, seeing him, began, again, to be saying unto the by-standers - This one, is, from among them. But, he, again, was denying. And, after a little again, the by-standers, were saying unto Peter - Truly, thou, art, from among them; for thou art, a Galilaean, also. And, he, began to be cursing and swearing - I know not this man, of whom ye are speaking! And, straightway, a second time, a cock, crowed; and Peter was reminded of the declaration, how Jesus had said to him - Before a cock, twice, crow, thrice, wilt thou deny me. And, when he thought thereon, he began to weep.

Now Simon Peter was standing and warming himself. They said, therefore, unto him - Art, thou also, from among his disciples? He, denied, and said - I am not! Saith one from among the servants of the High-priest, being, kinsman, of him whose ear Peter cut off, - Did not, I, see thee, in the garden with him? Again, therefore, Peter denied. And, straightway, a cock crew.

And they led away Jesus unto the High-priest; and all the High-priests and the Elders and the Scribes gather together. And, Peter, afar of, followed him, as far as within, into the court of the High-priest; and was sitting with the attendants, and warming himself by the light.

And, having arrested him, they led him away, and took him into the house of the High-priest; and, Peter, was following afar. And, they having kindled up a fire in the midst of the court, and taken seats together, Peter was for sitting among them. But, a certain maid-servant, seeing him seating himself towards the light, and looking steadfastly at him, said - This one also, was, with him. read more.
But, he, denied, saying - I know him not, woman! And, after a little, another, beholding him, said - Thou also, art, from among them. But, Peter, said - Man! I am not. And, about one hour having passed, a certain other, began stoutly to insist, saying - Of a truth, this one also, was with him; for indeed he is, a Galilaean. But Peter said - Man! I know not what thou art saying! And, instantly while yet he was speaking, a cock crew. And the Lord turned, and looked at Peter; and Peter was put in mind of the declaration of the Lord, how he had said to him - Before, a cock, crow this day, thou wilt deny me thrice! And, going forth outside, he wept bitterly.

and led him unto Annas, first; for he was father-in-law of Caiaphas, who was the High-priest of that year. Now Caiaphas was he that gave counsel unto the Jews, that it was profitable for, one man, to die in behalf of the people. And Simon Peter was following with Jesus, also another disciple. But, that disciple, was known unto the High-priest, and entered in, with Jesus, into the court of the High-priest; read more.
whereas, Peter, remained standing at the door outside. The other disciple, therefore, that was known of the High-priest, went out, and spake unto the portress, and brought in Peter. The female servant, therefore, the portress, saith unto Peter - Art, thou also, from among the disciples of this man? He, saith - I am not! Now the servants and the officers were standing by, having made, a coal fire, because it was cold, - and were warming themselves; and Peter also was with them, standing and warming himself.


And, Pilate, calling together the High-priests, and the Rulers, and the people, said unto them - Ye brought unto me this man, as one turning away the people, and lo! I, in your presence, examining him, found, nothing, in this man worthy of blame, in respect of the things whereof ye were making accusation against him. Nay! nor Herod; for he hath sent him back unto you, - and lo! nothing worthy of death, hath been done by him. read more.
So, then, chastising him, I will release him. But they cried aloud, with the whole throng, saying - Away with this man! and release unto us Barabbas: - who indeed, because of a certain revolt which had occurred in the city, and of murder, had been thrown into prison. Again, however, Pilate, called out unto them, wishing to release Jesus. But, they, called out in return, saying - Crucify! crucify him! But, he, the third time, said unto them - Why! what base thing hath this man done? Nothing worthy of death, found I in him. Chastising him, then, I will release him! But they became urgent with loud voices, claiming to have him crucified; and their voices began to prevail. And, Pilate, consented, that their request should be granted; and released him who, for revolt and murder, had been cast into prison, whom they claimed, - whereas, Jesus, delivered he up unto their will.

But, feast by feast, the governor had been wont to release one unto the multitude, a prisoner whom they were desiring. Now they had at that time a distinguished prisoner, called, Barabbas. They therefore having come together, Pilate, said to them - Whom will ye I should release unto you? Barabbas? or Jesus, who is called Christ? read more.
For he knew that, for envy, they had delivered him up. And, as he was sitting upon the judgment seat, his wife sent unto him, saying: Have thou nothing to do with that righteous man, for, many things, have I suffered this day, by dream, because of him. But, the High-priests and the elders, persuaded the multitudes, that they should claim Barabbas, but, Jesus, should, destroy. Now the governor, answering, said unto them - Which of the two desire ye I should release unto you? And they said - Barabbas! Pilate saith unto them - What then shall I do unto Jesus, who is called Christ? They all say - Let him be crucified! But, he, said - Indeed! what evil hath he done? But, they, vehemently, were crying aloud, saying - Let him be crucified! And Pilate, seeing, that, nothing, it availed, but rather, a tumult, was arising, taking water, washed his hands of it before the multitude, saying - Innocent, am I, of the blood of this man, - Ye, shall see to it for yourselves. And all the people, answering, said - His blood be upon us and upon our children! Then released he unto them Barabbas, but, scourging, Jesus, delivered him up, that he might be crucified.

Now, at feast time, he was wont to release unto them one prisoner, whom they were claiming. And there was the so-called Barabbas, with the rebels, bound, even with them who, in the rebellion, had committed, murder. And, going up, the multitude began to be claiming - according as he was wont to do for them. read more.
But, Pilate, answered them, saying - Will ye, I release unto you, the King of the Jews? For he was getting to know that, for envy, had the High-priestsdelivered him up. But, the High-priests, stirred up the multitude, that, rather Barabbas, he should release unto them. But, Pilate, again answering, was saying unto them - What then shall I do with him whom ye call, the King of the Jews? And, they, again, cried out - Crucify him! But, Pilate, was saying unto them - Why! what, evil, hath he done? And, they, vehemently, cried out - Crucify him! And Pilate, being minded to do what would satisfy, the multitude, released unto them Barabbas, and delivered up Jesus, having scourged him, that he should be crucified.

Howbeit ye have, a custom, that, some one, I should release unto you, during the passover: - Are ye minded, then, that I release unto you the king of the Jews? So they cried aloud again, saying - Not this man, but Barabbas! Now, Barabbas, was, a robber.

Then Pilate, therefore, took Jesus, and scourged him. And, the soldiers, plaiting a crown out of thorns, placed it upon his head, and, a purple robe, cast they about him; and kept coming unto him, and saying - Joy to thee! O King of the Jews! - and were giving unto him smart blows. read more.
And Pilate went forth again outside, and saith unto them - See! I lead him unto you outside, that ye may take knowledge, that, no single fault, do I find in him. Jesus, therefore, came forth outside, wearing the thorn crown, and the purple mantle. And he saith unto them - Lo! the Man! When, therefore, the High-priests and the officers saw him, they cried aloud, saying - Crucify! Crucify! Pilate saith unto them - Ye, take him, and crucify; for, I, find not in him, a fault. The Jews answered him - We, have, a law, and, according to the law, he ought to die, because, Son of God, himself, he made. When, therefore, Pilate heard this word, he was the more afraid; and entered into the judgment-hail again, and saith unto Jesus - Whence, art, thou? But, Jesus, gave him no, answer. Pilate, therefore, saith unto him - Unto me, dost thou not speak? Knowest thou not, that, authority, have I to release thee, and, authority, have I to crucify thee? Jesus answered him - Thou couldst have had no authority against me, at all, if it had not been given unto thee from above. Therefore, he that delivered me unto thee, hath, greater sin. For this cause, Pilate, began seeking to release him; but, the Jews, cried aloud saying - If this man thou release, thou art not a friend of Caesar, for, every one who maketh himself king, speaketh against Caesar. Pilate, therefore, when he heard these words, led Jesus outside, and sat down upon a raised seat, in a place called Pavement, but, in Hebrew, Gabbatha. Now it was the preparation of the passover, - it was about the sixth hour. And he saith unto the Jews - See! your King! They, therefore, cried aloud - Away! away! Crucify him! Pilate saith unto them - Your king, shall I crucify? The High-priests answered - We have no king but Caesar! Then, therefore, he delivered him up unto them, that he might be crucified. They took possession, therefore, of Jesus.


And, Peter, being, below in the court, there cometh one of the maid-servants of the High-priest; and, seeing Peter warming himself, having looked at him, saith - And, thou, wast, with the Nazarene - with Jesus. But, he, denied, saying - I neither know him , nor do I well understand what, thou, sayest; and went out into the porch. read more.
And, the maid-servant, seeing him, began, again, to be saying unto the by-standers - This one, is, from among them. But, he, again, was denying. And, after a little again, the by-standers, were saying unto Peter - Truly, thou, art, from among them; for thou art, a Galilaean, also. And, he, began to be cursing and swearing - I know not this man, of whom ye are speaking! And, straightway, a second time, a cock, crowed; and Peter was reminded of the declaration, how Jesus had said to him - Before a cock, twice, crow, thrice, wilt thou deny me. And, when he thought thereon, he began to weep.

And, while, yet, he was speaking, lo! Judas, one of the twelve, came, and, with him, a large multitude, with swords and clubs, from the High-priests and Elders of the people. And, he who was delivering him up, gave them a sign, saying - Whomsoever I shall kiss, he, it is, - secure him. And, straightway, coming unto Jesus, he said - Joy to thee! Rabbi, and eagerly kissed him. read more.
But, Jesus, said unto him - Friend! wherefore art thou here? Then, coming forward, they thrust their hands upon Jesus, and secured him. And lo! one of those with Jesus, stretching forth his hand, grasped his sword, and smiting the servant of the High-priest, cut off his ear. Then, Jesus saith unto him - Put back thy sword into its place, for, all they who take a sword, by a sword, shall perish. Or thinkest thou that I cannot call upon my Father, and he will set near me, even now, more than twelve legions of messengers? How then should the Scriptures be fulfilled, that, thus, it must needs come to pass? In that hour, said Jesus unto the multitudes: As against a robber, came ye forth, with swords and clubs, to arrest me? Daily in the temple, used I to sit teaching, and ye secured me not; But, this, hath, wholly, come to pass, that, the Scriptures of the prophets, may be fulfilled. Then, the disciples, all forsaking him, fled.

And, straightway, while yet he is speaking, Judas Iscariot, one of the twelve, cometh near, and, with him, a multitude, with swords and clubs, from the High-priests and the Scribes and the Elders. He that is delivering him up hath given an agreed sign unto them, saying - Whomsoever I shall kiss, he, it is! Secure him, and be leading away, safely. And, coming, straightway, stepping forward to him, he saith - Rabbi! and openly kissed him. read more.
And, they, thrust their hands on him, and secured him. A certainone of the by-standers, drawing a sword, smote the servant of the High priest, and took off his, ear. And Jesus, answering, said unto them - As against a robber, came ye forth, with swords and clubs, to arrest me? Daily, was I with you, in the temple, teaching; and ye secured me not. But, that, the Scriptures, may be fulfilled -- And they, all, forsook, him, and fled. And, a certain young man, was following with him, having cast about himself a fine Indian cloth, over his naked body, - and they are securing him; but, he, leaving behind the cloth, fled naked. And they led away Jesus unto the High-priest; and all the High-priests and the Elders and the Scribes gather together. And, Peter, afar of, followed him, as far as within, into the court of the High-priest; and was sitting with the attendants, and warming himself by the light.

While yet he was speaking, lo! a multitude; and, he that was called Judas, one of the twelve, was leading them on, - and he drew near unto Jesus, to kiss him. But, Jesus, said to him - Judas! with a kiss, the Son of Man, dost thou deliver up? And they who were about him, seeing what would be, said - Lord! shall we smite with the sword? read more.
And a certain one from among them smote, the High-priest's, servant, and took off his right ear. But Jesus, answering, said - Let be - as long as this! -- And, touching the ear, he healed him. And Jesus said unto the High-priests, and Captains of the temple, and Elders, who had come against him - As against a robber, have ye come out, with swords and clubs? Daily, was I with you, in the temple, and yet ye stretched not forth your hands against me! -- But, this, is your hour, and the authority of darkness.

Now, Judas also, who was delivering him up, knew the place: because, oft, had Jesus been gathered there, with his disciples. Judas, therefore, receiving the band, and officers, from among the High-priests and from amongthe Pharisees, cometh thither, with lights and torches and weapons. Jesus, therefore, knowing all the things coming upon him, went forth, and saith unto them - Whom, seek ye? read more.
They answered him - Jesus, the Nazarene. He saith unto them - I, am he. Now Judas also, who was delivering him up, was standing with them. When, therefore, he said unto them, I, am he, they went backwards, and fell to the ground. Again, therefore, he questioned them - Whom, seek ye? And, they, said - Jesus, the Nazarene. Jesus answered - I told you, I, am he. If, then, ye seek me, let these go their way: - that the word might be fulfilled which he had said - As touching them whom thou hast given me, I lost from among them, not so much as one. Simon Peter, therefore, having a sword, drew it, and smote the High-priest's servant, and cut off his right ear. Now the name of the servant was Malchus. Jesus, therefore, said unto Peter - Thrust the sword into its sheath: - The cup which the Father hath given me, shall I in anywise not drink it? The band, therefore, and the captain, and the officers of the Jews, apprehended Jesus, and bound him,


Am not free? Am I not an apostle? Jesus our Lord, have I not seen? Are not, ye, my work, in the Lord?

And, last of all, just as if unto the unseasonable birth, he appeared, even unto me;

And he said - The God of our fathers, hath chosen thee to get to know his will, and to see the Righteous One, - and to hear a voice out of his mouth.

But rise and stand upon thy feet; for, to this end, have I appeared unto thee, - To appoint thee an attendant and a witness, both of the things as to which thou hast seen me, and of those as to which I will appear unto thee:

But, on the following night, the Lord, standing over him, said - Be of good courage! for, as thou hast fully borne witness of the things concerning me in Jerusalem, so must thou, in Rome also, bear witness.

But, as he was journeying, it came to pass that he was drawing near unto Damascus, and, suddenly, there flashed around him a light out of heaven; And, falling unto the earth, he heard a voice saying unto him - Saul! Saul! why, me, art thou persecuting? And he said - Who art thou, Lord? And, he, said - I, am Jesus, whom, thou, art persecuting! read more.
But rise up, and enter into the city, and it shall be told thee what thou must do. But, the men who were accompanying him, stood speechless, - hearing, indeed, the voice, but beholding no one. And Saul arose from the earth, and, his eyes being opened, he could see nothing; and, taking him by the hand, they led him into Damascus, - And he was three days without seeing, and did neither eat nor drink. Now there was a certain disciple in Damascus, by name Ananias; and, the Lord, said unto him in a vision - Ananias! And, he, said - Lo! I, am here , Lord! And the Lord said unto him - Rise! go into the street which is called Straight, and seek, in the house of Judas, one Saul, by name, of Tarsus. For lo! he is praying, - And hath seen a man in a vision, Ananias by name, coming in and laying on him his hands, to the intent he should see. And Ananias, answered - Lord! I have heard from many concerning this man, how many evil things unto thy saints he hath done in Jerusalem; And, here, he hath authority from the High-priests to bind all them that call upon thy name. But the Lord said unto him - Be going thy way; for, a choice vessel unto me, is this man, to bear my name before both thenations and kings, and the sons of Israel; For, I, will let him understand how many things he must needs, for my name, suffer. And Ananias departed, and entered into the house; and, laying upon him his hands, said - Saul, brother! The Lord, hath sent me, - Jesus, who appeared unto thee in the way by which thou wast coming, - that thou mayest recover sight, and be filled with Holy Spirit.

And the Lord said by night, through means of a vision, unto Paul - Be not afraid! but be speaking, - and do not hold thy peace;

and saw him, saying unto me - Haste thee, and go forth speedily out of Jerusalem, inasmuch as they will not accept thy witness concerning me.


Having said these things, Jesus, went out, with his disciples, across the winter-torrent of the Kedron, where was a garden, - into which he entered, he, and his disciples.

And, having sung praise, they went forth unto the Mount of Olives.


Then Jesus cometh with them, into a place called Gethsemane, - and he saith unto his disciples, Sit ye here, while I go yonder and pray. And, taking with him, Peter and the two sons of Zebedee, he began to be grieved and to be in great distress. Then, saith he unto them: Encompassed with grief, is my soul, unto death: Abide ye here, and be watching with me. read more.
And, going forward a little, he fell upon his face, offering prayer, and saying - My Father! If it is possible, let this cup pass from me, - Nevertheless, not as, I, will, but as, thou, wilt. And he cometh unto his disciples, and findeth them sleeping, and said unto Peter - Thus, powerless are ye, one hour, to watch with me? Be watching and praying, that ye may not enter into temptation: The spirit, indeed, is, eager, but, the flesh, weak. Again, a second time, departing he prayed, saying: My Father! If it is impossible for this to pass, except I, drink, it, Accomplished, be, thy will. And coming, he, again, found them sleeping, for their eyes had become heavy. And, leaving them, he, again, departed, and prayed a third time, the same word, saying again. Then, cometh he unto the disciples, and saith unto them, - Ye are sleeping what time remaineth, and taking your rest: Lo! the hour hath drawn near, and, the Son of Man, is being delivered up into the hands of sinners. Arise! let us be going, - Lo! he that delivereth me up, hath drawn near.

And they come into an estate the name of which is Gethsemane, and he saith unto his disciples - Sit ye here, while I pray. And he taketh Peter and James and John with him, and began to be exceedingly amazed, and in great distress; and he saith unto them - Encompassed with grief is my soul, unto death: Abide ye here, and be watching. read more.
And, going forward a little, he fell upon the ground, and was praying that, if it were possible, the hour might pass from him; and was saying - Abba! O Father! All things, are possible to thee: Bear aside this cup from me; but not what, I, will, but what, thou, wilt . And he cometh and findeth them sleeping, and saith unto Peter - Simon! art thou sleeping? Hadst thou not strength, one hour, to watch? Be watching and praying, that ye enter not into temptation: the, spirit, indeed, is willing, but, the flesh, weak. And, again, departing, he prayed, the same thing, saying. And, again, coming, he found them sleeping, for their eyes were being, weighed down, - and they knew not what to answer him. And he cometh the third time, and saith unto them - Ye are sleeping the remaining time and taking your rest: - It is enough! the hour hath come! Lo! the Son of Man is being delivered up into the hands of sinners. Be rousing yourselves, let us be leading on! Lo! he that is delivering me up, hath drawn near.

And going out, he went, according to his custom, unto the Mount of Olives; and the disciples alsofollowed him. And, coming up to the place, he said unto them - Be praying, lest ye enter into temptation. And, he, was torn from them about a stone's throw; and, bending his knees, he began to pray, read more.
saying - Father! if thou please, bear aside this cup from me. Nevertheless, not my will, but thine, be accomplished. And, arising from prayer, he came unto his disciples, and found them falling asleep by reason of their grief; and he said unto them - Why are ye slumbering? Arise! and be praying, lest ye enter into temptation.


And, when, evening, arrived, there came a rich man from Arimathaea, whose name was Joseph, who also, himself, had been discipled unto Jesus. The same, going unto Pilate, claimed the body of Jesus. Then, Pilate commanded it to be given up. And Joseph, taking the body, wrapped it up in a clean Indian-cloth, read more.
and laid it in his new tomb, which he had hewn in the rock, and, rolling near a large stone unto the door of the tomb, departed. Now there were there, Mary the Magdalene, and the other Mary, sitting over against the sepulchre. And, on the morrow, which is after the preparation, the High-priests and the Pharisee were gathered together unto Pilate, saying - Sir! we have been put in mind that, that deceiver, said, while yet living, - After three days, will I, arise. Command, therefore, that the sepulchre be made secure until the third day, - lest once the disciples should come and steal him, and say unto the people, He hath arisen from the dead! and, the last deception, shall be, worse than the first. Pilate saith unto them - Ye have a guard: Go your way, secure it for yourselves, as ye know how. And, they, went and secured for themselves the sepulchre, sealing the stone, with the guard.

And evening, already, having begun, since it was a preparation, that is, the eve of a Sabbath, Joseph of Arimathaea, a noble counsellor, who, also himself, was awaiting the kingdom of God, came; and, venturing, went in unto Pilate, and claimed the body of Jesus. But, Pilate, wondered whether, already, he was dead; and, calling near the centurion, questioned him - whether he had, already, died. read more.
And, getting to know from the centurion, he presented the corpse unto Joseph. And, buying a fine Indian cloth, he took him down, and wrapped him about with the cloth, and laid him in a tomb, which had been hewn out of a rock, - and rolled near a stone upon the door of the tomb. Now, Mary the Magdalene, and Mary the mother of Joses, were viewing how he had been laid.

And lo! a man, by name Joseph, being, a councillor, - a good and righteous man (the same had not consented unto their plan and deed), - from Arimathaea, a city of the Jews, who was awaiting the kingdom of God, the same, going unto Pilate, claimed the body of Jesus. read more.
And, taking it down, he wrapped it in a fine Indian cloth, and laid him in a tomb hewn in stone, - where no one as yet was lying. And it was a day of preparation, and, a Sabbath, was about to dawn. And the women, they who had come out of Galilee with him, following after, observed the tomb, and how his body was laid. And, returning, they made ready spices and perfumes. And, on the Sabbath, indeed, they were quiet, according to the commandment;

The Jews, therefore, since it was, a preparation, that the bodies might not remain upon the cross during the Sabbath, - for that Sabbath day was, great, requested Pilate that their legs might be broken, and they be taken away. The soldiers, therefore, came; and, of the first, indeed, brake the legs, and of the other who was crucified with him, - but coming, unto Jesus, when they saw that, already, he was dead, they brake not his legs; - read more.
but, one of the soldiers, with a spear, pierced, his side, and there came out, straightway, blood and water. And, he that hath seen, hath borne witness; and, genuine, is his testimony, and, he, knoweth that he saith, what is true, that, ye also, may believe. For these things came to pass, that, the Scripture, might be fulfilled - A bone thereof, shall not be crushed; and, again, a different Scripture, saith - They shall look unto him whom they pierced. But, after these things, Joseph from Arimathaea, being a disciple of Jesus, but having kept it secret for fear of the Jews, requested Pilate, that he might take away the body of Jesus; and Pilate gave permission. He came, therefore, and took away his body. There came, moreover, Nicodemus also, - he that came unto him by night at the first, - bearing a roll of myrrh and aloes, about a hundred pounds' weight. So they received the body of Jesus, and bound it in linen-bandages with the spices, - just as it is, a custom, with the Jews to prepare for burial. Now there was, in the place where he was crucified, a garden; and, in the garden, an unused tomb, wherein, as yet, no one had been laid. So, there, by reason of the preparation of the Jews, because, near, was the tomb, laid they Jesus.


and, as they were eating, he said - Verily, I say unto you, One from among you, will deliver me up. And, being exceedingly grieved, they began to be saying to him, each one - Can it be, I, Lord? And, he, answering, said - He who hath dipped with me his hand in the bowl, the same, will deliver me up. read more.
The Son of Man, indeed, goeth his way, according as it is written concerning him, - But alas! for that man, through whom the Son of Man, is being delivered up: Well, had it been for him, if, that man, had not been born! And Judas, who was delivering him up, answering, said - Can it be, I, Rabbi? He saith unto him - Thou, hast said.

And, as they were reclining and eating, Jesus said - Verily, I say unto you - One from among you, will deliver me up, he that is eating with me. They began to be grieved, and to be saying unto him, one by one, - Can it be, I? And, he, said unto them - One of the twelve, he that is dipping with me into the onebowl: read more.
Because, the Son of Man, indeed, goeth his way, - according as it is written concerning him; but alas! for that man, through whom the Son of Man is being delivered up, - Well for him, if that man, had not been born!

Nevertheless, lo! the hand of him who is delivering me up, is with me upon the table. Because, the Son of Man, indeed, according to what is marked out, goeth his way; nevertheless, alas! for that man through whom he is being delivered up. And, they, began to be enquiring together, among themselves, as to which, then, it could be, from among them, who, this thing, was about to perpetrate!

These things, having said, Jesus, was troubled in spirit, and bare witness, and said - Verily, verily, I say unto you - One from among you, will deliver me up. The disciples began to look one at another, being at a loss concerning whom he was speaking. One of Jesus' disciples was reclining in his bosom, one whom Jesus loved: read more.
so Simon Peter beckoneth unto the same, and saith unto him - Say, Who is it? concerning whom he speaketh. He, falling back thus, upon the breast of Jesus, saith unto him - Lord! who is it? Jesus, therefore, answereth - That one, it is, for whom, I, shall dip the morsel, and give unto him. So, dipping the morsel, he taketh and giveth it unto Judas, son of Simon Iscariot. And, after the morsel, then, entered, Satan, into that man. Jesus, therefore, saith unto him - What thou art doing, do quickly! But, as to this, none of them who were reclining with him knew respecting what, he said it to him. For, some, were thinking, since Judas held the bag, that Jesus was saying to him - Buy the things of which we have, need, for the feast; or that, unto the destitute, he should give something. So, he, taking the morsel, went out straightway; - and it was night.


And, when they had mocked him, they put off him the scarf, and put on him his garments, and led him away unto the crucifying. And, as they were going forth, they found a man of Cyrene, by name, Simon, - the same, they impressed to bear his cross. And, coming into a place called Golgotha, that is to say, Skull-place, read more.
they gave him to drink, wine, with gall, mingled, and, tasting, he would not drink.

And, when they had mocked him, they put off him, the purple, and put on him, his own garments. And they lead him forth, that they may crucify him. And they impress a certain passer-by, Simon a Cyrenian, coming from a field, the father of Alexander and Rufus, - that he may carry his cross. And they bring him unto the Golgotha place, which is, being translated, Skull-place. read more.
And they would have given him, myrrhed wine, - who, however, received it not.

And, as they led him away, they laid hold of a certain Simon, a Cyrenian, coming from the country, - they laid on him the cross, that he might bear it after Jesus. And there was following him a great throng of the people, and of women, who were smiting themselves and lamenting him. But, turning towards them, Jesus said - Daughters of Jerusalem! Do not weep for me; but, for yourselves, be weeping, and for your children. read more.
For lo! days are coming, in which they will say - Happy the barren! even the wombs that never bare, and the breasts that never gave suck. Then, will they begin to say - unto the mountains, Fall upon us! and unto the hills, Cover us! Because if, in moist wood, these things, they are doing, - in, the dry, what shall happen? And there were being led, two other evil-doers also, to be lifted up.

Then, therefore, he delivered him up unto them, that he might be crucified. They took possession, therefore, of Jesus. And, bearing for himself the cross, he went forth unto the so-called Skull-place, which is named, in Hebrew, Golgotha;


Now, when morning came, all the High-priests and Elders of the people took, counsel, against Jesus, so as to put him to death: and, binding him, they led him away, and delivered him up unto Pilate the governor.

Now, Jesus, stood before the governor; and the governor questioned him, saying - Thou, art the king of the Jews? And, Jesus, said - Thou, sayest. And, while he was being accused by the High-priests and Elders, he answered nothing. Then, Pilate saith unto him - Hearest thou not how many things against thee they are bearing witness? read more.
And he answered him, no not so much as a single word, so that the governor was marvelling exceedingly.

And, straightway, early, when they had made, a council, the High-priest, with the Elders, and Scribes, and all the High-council, binding Jesus, led him away, and delivered him up unto Pilate. And Pilate questioned him - Art, thou, the king of the Jews? And, he, answering him, saith - Thou, sayest. And the High-priests began to accuse him, of many things. read more.
And, Pilate, again, was questioning him, saying- Answerest thou, nothing? See! of how many things, they are accusing thee! But, Jesus, no further, answered, anything, so that Pilate began to marvel.

And one and all the throng of them, arising, led him unto Pilate. And they began to accuse him, saying - This one, found we, perverting our nation, and forbidding to give, tribute unto Caesar, - and affirming himself to be, an anointed king. And, Pilate, questioned him, saying - Art, thou, the king of the Jews? And, he, answering him, said - Thou, sayest. read more.
And, Pilate, said unto the High-priests and the multitudes, Nothing, find I, worthy of blame, in this man. But, they, began to be urgent, saying - He is stirring up the people, teaching along all Judaea, even beginning from Galilee unto this place.

So they lead Jesus from Caiaphas unto the judgment-hall. Now it was early; and, they themselves, entered not into the judgment-hall, that they might not be defiled, but might eat the passover. Pilate, therefore, went forth outside unto them, and saith, - What accusation bring ye against this man? They answered and said unto him - If this one had not been doing, mischief, unto thee, had we not delivered him up. read more.
Pilate, therefore, said unto them - Ye, take him, and, according to your law, judge ye him. The Jews said unto him - Unto us, it is not allowed, to kill anyone! - that, the word of Jesus, might be fulfilled, which he spake, signifying, by what manner of death, he was about to die. Pilate, therefore, entered again into the judgment-hall; and addressed Jesus, and said unto him - Art, thou, the king of the Jews? Jesus answered - Of thyself, art, thou, this thing saying; or did, others, tell thee concerning me? Pilate answered - Am, I, a Jew? Thine own nation, and the High-priests, delivered thee up, unto me! What, hast thou done? Jesus answered - My kingdom, is not of this world: If, of this world, had been my kingdom, mine own officers, would have been striving, that I should not be delivered up unto the Jews: but, now, my kingdom, is not from hence. Pilate, therefore, said unto him - And yet, thou, art, not a king? Jesus answered - Thou, sayest, that, a king, I am: I, for this, have been born, and, for this, have come into the world, - that I may bear witness unto the truth: Every one who is of the truth, hearkeneth unto my voice. Pilate saith unto him - What, is truth? And, this saying, again, went he out to the Jews, and saith unto them, - I, find in him, not a single fault.


Now, the High-priests and all the High-council, were seeking false-witness against Jesus, that they might, put him to death; and found not any, though many came forward as false-witnesses. At length, however, there came forward, two, and said: This, man said - I am able to pull down the shrine of God, and, in three days, to, build, it. read more.
And the High-priest, arising, said unto him - Nothing, answerest thou? What are these, against thee bearing witness? But, Jesus, was silent. And, the High-priest, said unto him: I put thee on oath, by the Living God, that, to us, thou say - Whether, thou, art the Christ, the Son of God. Jesus saith unto him: Thou, hast said; Moreover, I say unto you - Hereafter, ye will see the Son of Man, sitting on the right hand of power, and coming upon the clouds of heaven. Then, the High-priest rent asunder his garments, saying - He hath spoken profanely! What further need have we, of witnesses? Lo! now, ye have heard the profanity! How, to you, doth it seem? And, they, answering, said: Guilty of death, he is. Then, spat they into his face, and buffeted him; and, others, struck him smartly, saying - Prophesy unto us, O Christ! Who is he that struck thee?

Now, the High-priest, and all the High-council, were seeking, against Jesus, testimony, with the intent to put him to death, - and were not finding any; for, many, were bearing false-witness against him, and the testimonies were not, agreed. And some, standing up, were bearing false-witness against him, saying - read more.
We, heard him saying, I, will pull down this shrine, the one made by hand, and, in three days, another, not made by hand, will I raise. And, not even so, was the testimony, agreed. And, the High-priest rising up into the midst, questioned Jesus, saying - Answerest thou, nothing? What are these, against thee, witnessing? But, he, was silent, and answered, nothing. Again, the High-priest was questioning him, and saith unto him - Art, thou, the Christ the Son of the Blessed? And Jesus said - I, am; and ye shall see the Son of Man - sitting, on the right hand, of Power, and coming with the clouds of heaven. And, the High-priest, having rent asunder his inner-garments, saith - What, further, need have we, of witnesses? Heard ye the profanity? What, to you, doth it appear? And they, all, condemned him to be, worthy, of, death. And some began to be spitting at him, and, covering up his face, and to be buffeting him, and saying to him - Prophesy! And, the attendants, with smart blows, took him.

And, the men who held him bound, kept mocking him, with blows; and, blindfolding him, questioned him, saying - Prophesy! which is he that smote thee? and, many other things, with profane speech, were they saying unto him. read more.
And, when it became day, the Eldership of the people was gathered together - both High-priests and Scribes, - and they led him away into their high-council, saying - If, thou, art the Christ, tell us! But he said unto them - If I should tell, you, in nowise would ye believe, And, if I should put questions, in nowise would ye answer; But, henceforth, shall the Son of Man be seated on the right hand of the power of God. And they all said - Thou, then, art the Son of God? And, he, unto them said - Ye, say it , - because, I, am. And, they, said - What, further, need have we, of witness? We ourselves, have heard it from his mouth.

The High-priest, therefore, questioned Jesus concerning his disciples, and concerning his teaching. Jesus answered him - I, openly, have spoken, unto the world, - I, ever, taught, in synagogue, and in the temple, where all the Jews gather together; and, in secret, spake nothing: Why questionest thou me? question them who have heard, what I spake unto them. See! these, know what, I, said.


And, having crucified him, they parted among themselves his garments, casting a cloth; and, being seated, were watching him there. And they put up, over his head, his accusation, written - THIS, IS JESUS, THE KING OF THE JEWS. read more.
Then, are crucified with him, two robbers, - one on the right hand, and one on the left. And, they who were passing by, were reviling him, shaking their heads, and saying - The man that taketh down the Temple and in three days buildeth it! Save, thyself! If thou art God's, Son, come down from the cross. Likewise, the High-priests, also, mocking, with the Scribes and Elders, were saying: Others, he saved, - Himself, he cannot save: Israel's King, he is! Let him come down, now, from the cross, - and we will believe on him! He hath put confidence upon God, Let him rescue him, now, if he desireth him; for he said, I am, God's Son. And, the same thing, the robbers also, who were crucified with him, were casting in his teeth. Now, from the sixth hour, darkness, came upon all the land - until the ninth hour. And, about the ninth hour, Jesus uttered a cry, with a loud voice, saying - Eloi! Eloi! lema sabachthanei? that is, My God! my God! to what end hast thou forsaken me? Now certain of them who were there standing, when they heard, began to say - This man, calleth, Elijah. And, straightway, one from among them, running, and taking a sponge, and filling it with vinegar and putting it on a reed, was giving him to drink; but, the rest, said - Stay! let us see whether Elijah is coming, and will save him. . And, Jesus, again crying out with a loud voice, dismissed the spirit. And lo! the veil of the Temple, was rent, from top to bottom, into two; and, the earth, was shaken, and, the rocks, were rent; and, the tombs, were opened and, many bodies of the holy ones who had fallen asleep, arose, - and, coming forth out of the tombs after his arising, entered into, the holy city, and plainly appeared unto many. Now, the centurion, and those with him watching Jesus, seeing the earthquake and the things coming to pass, were violently affrighted, saying - Truly, God's Son, was, he! Now there were there, many women, from afar, beholding, who indeed had followed Jesus from Galilee, ministering unto him; among whom was Mary the Magdalene, also Mary the mother of James and Joseph, and the mother of the sons of Zebedee.

And they crucify him, and part asunder his garments, casting a lot upon them - who should have anything. And it was the third hour, and they crucified him. And the inscription of his accusation, had been inscribed - THE KING OF THE JEWS. read more.
And, with him, they crucify, two robbers, one on his right hand, and one on his left. And, the passers-by, were reviling him, shaking their heads, and saying - Aha! thou who wast pulling down the shrine, and building one in three days! Save thyself, - coming down from the cross. Likewise, the High-priests also, mocking one to another, with the Scribes, were saying - Others, he saved, himself, he cannot save! The Christ, the King of Israel - let him come down now from the cross, that we may see and believe. And, they who had been crucified with him, were casting it in his teeth. And, when it was the sixth hour, darkness, came on all the land - until the ninth hour; and, at the ninth hour, Jesus, uttered a cry, with a loud voice - Eloi! Eloi! lama sabachthanei? which is, being translated - My God! My God!to what end, didst thou forsake me? And, some of the by-standers, having heard, were saying - See! Elijah, he calleth! And one, running, filled a sponge with vinegar, and, putting it about a reed, was giving him to drink, saying - Stay! let us see whether Elijah is coming, to take him down! But, Jesus, sending out a loud voice, ceased to breathe. And, the veil of the Temple, was rent into two, from top to bottom. Now the centurion, who was standing near, out over against him, seeing, that, thus, he ceased to breathe, said - Truly, this man, was God's son! And there were, women also, from afar, looking on, - among whom were both Mary the Magdalene, and Mary the mother of James the Little and Joses, and Salome; who, when he was in Galilee, used to follow him, and minister unto him, - and many other women, who had come up with him unto Jerusalem.

And, when they came into the place which was called Skull, there, they crucified him; and the evil-doers, one indeed on the right hand, and the other on the left. And, when they were parting his garments, they cast lots. And the people were standing, looking on. But the rulers were sneering, saying - Others, he saved, let him save himself, - if, this, is, the Christ of God, the Chosen. read more.
Moreover the soldiers also mocked him, - coming near, offering, vinegar, unto him, and saying - If, thou, art the King of the Jews, save thyself. Now there was an inscription also, over him - THE KING OF THE JEWS, THIS! And, one of the suspended evil-doers, began to defame him - Art not, thou, the Christ? Save thyself and us! But the other, answering, rebuked him, and said - Neither fearest, thou, God, in that thou art, in the same judgment? And, we, indeed, justly, - for, things worthy of what we have done, are we duly receiving, but, this man, nothing amiss, hath done. And he went on to say - Jesus! remember me, whensoever thou shalt come into thy kingdom. And he said unto him - Verily, I say unto thee this day: With me, shalt thou be in Paradise. And it was already about the sixth hour, and, darkness, came upon the whole land, until the ninth hour, - the sun failing; and the veil of the temple was rent in the midst. And, calling out with a loud voice, Jesus said - Father! into thy hands, I commend my spirit. And, this, saying, he ceased to breathe. And the centurion, beholding that which came to pass, began to glorify God, saying - In very deed, this man, was, righteous. And, all the multitudes who had been drawn together unto this spectacle, having looked upon the things that came to pass, smiting their breasts, began to return. But all they who were acquainted with him, were standing afar off, women also who had followed with him from Galilee, - beholding these things.

where, him, they crucified; and, with him, other two, on this side and on that, and, in the midst, Jesus. And Pilate wrote a title also, and placed on the cross; and there was written - JESUS, THE NAZARENE, THE KING OF THE JEWS. This title, therefore, read many of the Jews, because, near, was the place to the city where Jesus was crucified; ad it was written in Hebrew, in Latin, in Greek. read more.
The High-priests of the Jews, therefore, were saying unto Pilate - Do not be writing, The King of the Jews; but that, he, said: King of the Jews, I am. Pilate answered - What I have written, I have written! The soldiers, therefore, when they had crucified Jesus, took his garments and made four parts, unto each soldier, a part; also the tunic. Howbeit, the tunic was without seam, from above, woven throughout. They said, therefore, one to another - Let us not rend it, but cast lots for it, whose, it shall be; - that, the Scripture, might be fulfilled - They parted my garments amongst them, and, for my vestment, they cast lots: - yes verily, the soldiers, these things did. And there were standing by the cross of Jesus, his mother, and his mother's sister, Mary the wife of Clopas, and Mary the Magdalene. Jesus, therefore, seeing his mother and the disciple whom he loved, saith unto his mother - O woman, see! thy son! Afterwards, he saith unto the disciple - See! thy mother! And, from that hour, the disciple took her unto his own home. After this, Jesus, knowing that, already, all things, have been finished, - that the Scripture might be fulfilled, saith - I thirst! A vessel, was standing, full of vinegar. A sponge, therefore, full of the vinegar, put about, hyssop, brought they unto his mouth. When, therefore, he had received the vinegar, Jesus said - It is finished! And, bowing his head, delivered up his spirit.


And, when they are drawing near unto Jerusalem, unto Bethphage and Bethany, towards the Mount of Olives, he sendeth forth two of his disciples, - and saith unto them - Go your way into the village that is over against you, and, straightway, as ye are entering it, ye shall find a colt tied, upon which, no, man, yet, hath sat: loose him, and bring him. And, if anyone unto you should say - Why are ye doing this? say - The Lord, of him hath need; and, straightway, he sendeth him off again here. read more.
And they departed, and found a colt, tied unto a door outside, on the street, - and they are loosing him. And, certain of them that were there standing, were saying unto them - What are ye doing, loosing the colt? and they said unto them as, Jesus, said, - and they let them go. And they bring the colt unto Jesus, and throw upon him their mantles, - and he took his seat upon him. And, many, spread out, their mantles, along the way, and, others, young branches, - cutting them out of the fields. And, they who were going before, and they who were following after, were crying aloud - Hosanna! Blessed, is he that is coming in the name of the Lord! Blessed, is the coming kingdom of our father David! Hosanna in the highest! And he entered into Jerusalem, into the temple, and, looking round on all things, late already being the hour, he went out into Bethany, with the twelve.

And, when they drew near unto Jerusalem, and came unto Bethphage, unto the Mount of Olives, then, Jesus sent forth two disciples; saying unto them - Be going into the village that is over against you, and, straightway, ye shall find an ass, bound, and a colt with her, - loose them, and lead them unto me. And, if anyone, unto you, say aught, ye shall say - Their Lord, hath, need, - and, straightway, he will send them. read more.
But, this, hath come to pass, that it might be fulfilled, which was spoken through the prophet, saying: Tell ye the daughter of Zion, Lo! thy King, is coming unto thee, meek and mounted upon an ass, and upon a colt the foal of a toiling ass. And the disciples, went, and did as Jesus directed them; and led the ass and the colt, and laid upon them their garments, and he took his seat upon them. And, the chief multitude, spread their own mantles in the way, and, others, were cutting off young branches from the trees, and spreading them in the way; and the multitudes, they who were going before him and they who were following after, were crying aloud, saying - Hosanna! to the Son of David, Blessed is he that is coming in the name of the Lord, Hosanna in the highest. And, when he entered into Jerusalem, all the city was startled, saying - Who is this? And, the multitudes, were saying - This, is the prophet Jesus, - He from Nazareth of Galilee.

And it came to pass, as he drew near unto Bethphage, and Bethany, unto the mount which is called the Mount of Olives, he sent off two of his disciples, saying - Go your way unto the opposite village, in which, as ye are entering, ye shall find a colt, bound, whereon, no man, hath, ever sat, - and, having loosed him, bring him. And, if any one question you - Wherefore are ye loosing him? thus, shall ye say - His Lord, hath, need. read more.
And they who were sent, departing, found as he had said to them. And, as they were loosing the colt, his lords said unto them - Why are ye loosing the colt? And, they, said - His Lord, hath, need. And they brought him unto Jesus; and, throwing their mantles over the colt, they seated Jesus thereon. And, as he moved along, they were spreading their own mantles in the way. And, when he was drawing near, already, unto the descent of the Mount of Olives, one-and-all the throng of the disciples began joyfully to be praising God with a loud voice, concerning all the mighty works which they had seen; saying - Blessed is he that cometh -- The king! In the name of the Lord! In heaven, peace! And glory in the highest! And, certain of the Pharisees from the multitude, said unto him - Teacher! rebuke thy disciples. And he answered and said - I tell you - If, these, shall hold their peace, the stones, will cry out. And, when he drew near, beholding the city, he wept over it, saying - If thou hadst got to know, in this day, even thou, the conditions of peace -- But, now, are they hid from thine eyes: Because days will have come upon thee, that thine enemies will throw around a rampart against thee, and enclose thee; and hem thee in from every side, - And will level thee with the ground, and thy children within thee, and will not leave, stone on stone, within thee: because thou didst not get to know the season of thy visitation.

On the morrow, the great multitude that had come unto the feast, hearing that Jesus was coming into Jerusalem, took the branches of the palm trees, and went out to meet him, and began crying aloud - Hosanna! Blessed is he that is coming in the name of the Lord, - even the King of Israel! And Jesus, finding a young ass, took his seat thereon, just as it is written - read more.
Do not fear, O daughter of Zion! Lo! thy king, cometh, sitting upon the colt of an ass. These things, his disciples noticed not, at the first; but, when Jesus was glorified, then, remembered they that, these things, had, for him, been written, - and that, these things, they had done unto him. The multitude, therefore, that was with him when he called, Lazarus, out of the tomb, and raised him from among the dead, was bearing witness. On this account, the multitude met him also, because they heard that he had done, this sign. the Pharisees, therefore, said among themselves - Ye observe that ye are profiting nothing: See! the world, after him, hath gone away.


And Jesus, hearing it, retired from thence in a boat, into a desert place, apart, - and the multitudes, hearing of it, followed him on foot from the cities. And, coming forth, he saw a great multitude, - and was moved with compassion a over them, and cured their sick. And, evening, arriving, the disciples came unto him, saying - The place is, a desert, and, the hour, hath already passed, - dismiss the multitudes, that they may go away into the villages, and buy themselves food. read more.
But, Jesus, said unto them, No need, have they to go away, - give, ye, them to eat. But, they, say unto him - We have nothing here, save five loaves and two fishes. But, he, said - Bring, them, to me, here. And, giving orders that the multitudes should recline upon the grass, - taking the five loaves and the two fishes, - looking up into the heaven, he blessed; and, breaking, gave, the disciples, the loaves, and the disciples unto the multitude. And they did all eat, and were filled, - and they took up the remainder of the broken pieces, twelve baskets, full. And, they who did eat, were about five thousand, men, besides women and children.

And the apostles gather themselves together unto Jesus, and reported unto him all things, as many as they had done, and as many as they had taught. And he saith unto them - Come, ye yourselves, apart, into a desert place, and rest yourselves a little. For they who were coming and they who were going were many, and, not even to eat, were they finding fitting opportunity. And they departed, in the boat, into a desert place, apart. read more.
And many saw them going away, and took note of it, and, afoot, from all the cities, ran they together thither, - and outwent them. And, coming forth, he saw, a great multitude, and was moved with compassion towards them, because they were like sheep having no shepherd, and he began to be teaching them many things. And, already, a late hour, having arrived, his disciples came unto him and were saying, A desert, is the place, and it is, already, a late hour: dismiss them, that, departing into the surrounding hamlets and villages, they may buy themselves something to eat. But, he, answering said to them - Ye, give them, to eat. And they say unto him - Shall we depart and buy two hundred denaries' worth of loaves, and give them to eat? And, he, saith unto them - How many loaves, have ye? Go, see! And, getting to know, they say - Five, and, two fishes. And he gave them orders, that all should be made recline, in parties, upon, the green grass. And they fell back, in companies, by hundreds and by fifties. And, taking the five loaves, and the two fishes, looking up into heaven, he blessed, and brake up the loaves, and began giving unto the disciples, that they might set before them, and, the two fishes, divided he, unto all. And they did all eat, and were filled. And they took up broken pieces, twelve baskets, full measure, and from the fishes. And they who did eat the loaves were, five thousand men.

And the Apostles, returning, related to him what great things they had done. And, taking them aside, he retired privately, into a city called Bethsaida. But, the multitudes, getting to know, followed him; and, giving them welcome, he began speaking unto them concerning the kingdom of God, - and, them that had need of cure, he healed, And, the day, began to decline; and the twelve, coming near, said to him - Dismiss the multitude, that, going into the surrounding villages and hamlets, they may lodge, and find provisions; because, here, in a desert place, are we. read more.
But he said unto them - Give, ye, them to eat. They, however, said - We have not more than five loaves, and two fishes, - unless perhaps, we, should go, and buy food, for all this people. For there were about five thousand men. And he said unto his disciples - Make them recline, in companies of about fifty each. And they did so, - and made, one and all, recline. And, taking the five loaves, and the two fishes, looking up into heaven, he blessed them, and brake them up, and went on giving to the disciples, to set before the multitude; and they did all eat and were filled. And that which remained over to them, was taken up, - of broken pieces, twelve baskets.

After these things, Jesus went away across the sea of Galilee, that is, of Tiberias; and there was following him a great multitude, because they had been viewing the signs which he did upon such as were sick. But Jesus had gone up into the mountain, and, there, was sitting with his disciples. read more.
Now the passover was near, the feast of the Jews. So then Jesus, lifting up his eyes, and beholding that a great multitude was coming unto him, saith unto Philip - Whence are we to buy loaves, that these may eat? But, this, he was saying, to test him; for, he himself, knew, what he was about to do. Philip answered him - Two hundred denaries-worth of loaves, are not sufficient for them, that, each one, may take, a little. One from among his disciples, Andrew, the brother of Simon Peter, saith unto him - There is a little lad here, that hath five barley loaves, and two small fishes, - but, these, - what are they, for such numbers? Jesus said - Make the people recline. Now there was much grass in the place. So the men reclined, to the number of about five thousand. Jesus therefore took the loaves, and, giving thanks, went on distributing unto them that reclined; in like manner, of the small fishes also: as much as they were wishing. And, when they were well-filled, he saith unto his disciples - Gather up the broken pieces left over, that nothing be lost. So they gathered them up, and filled twelve baskets, with broken pieces out of the five barley loaves, - which were left over by them who had eaten. The people, therefore, seeing what signs he wrought, began to say - This, is, of a truth, the prophet who was to come into the world.


And lo! a great commotion occurred, - for, a messenger of the Lord, descending out of heaven, and coming near, had rolled away the stone, and was sitting upon it. Now his appearance, was, as lightning, and, his clothing, white as snow; and, for fear of him, they who were keeping watch were thrown into a commotion, and became as dead men. read more.
But the messenger, answering, said unto the women - Be not, ye, afraid! For I know that, Jesus the crucified, ye are seeking: He is not here, for he hath arisen, as he said. Come! see the place where he lay; And, quickly going, tell his disciples - He hath arisen from the dead, and lo! he is going before you into Galilee; - There, shall ye yourselves see him: Lo! I have told you. And, departing quickly from the tomb with fear and great joy, they ran to bring tidings unto his disciples. And lo! Jesus, met them, saying - Joy to you! And, they, going forward, held his feet, and worshipped him. Then, Jesus saith unto them - Be not afraid! Go your way, bear tidings unto my brethren, that they may depart into Galilee; and, there, shall they themselves see me. Now as they were, going, 1o! certain of the guard, went into the city and reported unto the High-priests all the things that had come to pass; and, being gathered together with the Elders and taking counsel, sufficient pieces of silver, gave they unto the soldiers, - saying - Say ye, His disciples, coming, by night, stole him, while we were sleeping; And, if this be reported unto the governor, we, will persuade him, and will make, you, free from care. And, they, taking the pieces of silver, did as they were instructed. And this account was spread abroad among the Jews -- until this veryday.

And, the Sabbath having passed, Mary the Magdalene, and Mary the mother of James, and Salome, bought spices, that, coming, they might anoint him. And, very early, on the first of the week, they are coming towards the tomb - when, the sun, arose. And they were saying one to another - Who, shall roll away for us the stone, out of the door of the tomb? read more.
And, looking up, they observe that the stone hath been rolled up, - for it was exceeding great. And, entering into the tomb, they saw a young man, sitting on the right, clothed with a white robe, - and they were greatly alarmed. But, he, saith unto them - Be not alarmed! Jesus, ye are seeking, the Nazarene, the crucified: He hath arisen! he is not here, - See! the place where they laid him! But go your way, tell his disciples, and Peter - He is going before you into Galilee: there, shall ye yourselves see him, - according as he said unto you. And, going out, they fled from the tomb, for, trembling and transport, were holding them; and, unto no one, said they, anything, for they were afraid.

but, on the first day of the week, at early dawn, unto the tomb, came they, bringing the spices which they had prepared. And they found the stone, rolled away from the tomb; but, when they entered, they found not the body . read more.
And it came to pass, while they were perplexing themselves concerning this, that 1o! two men, stood near them, in dazzling raiment. And, they becoming afraid, and bending their faces unto the ground, they said unto them - Why seek ye the Living One with the dead? Remember how he spake unto you while yet he was in Galilee: Saying, as to the Son of Man, that he must needs be delivered up into the hands of sinful men, and be crucified, - and, on the third day, arise. And they remembered his sayings; and, returning from the tomb, reported all these things unto the eleven, and unto all the rest. Now they were the Magdalene Mary, and Joana, and Mary the mother of James; and, the other women with them, were telling, unto the apostles, these things. And these sayings appeared before them, as if idle talk, and they were minded to disbelieve them.

But, on the first day of the week, Mary the Magdalene, cometh early, while it is yet, dark, unto the tomb, - and beholdeth the stone, already taken away out of the tomb. She runneth, therefore, and cometh unto Simon Peter, and unto the other disciple whom Jesus dearly loved, and saith unto them - They have taken away the Lord out of the tomb, and we know not where they have laid him. Peter, therefore, went out, and the other disciple, - and they were going unto the tomb; read more.
and the two were running together, and, the other disciple, outran Peter, and came first unto the tomb; and, stooping aside, beholdeth, lying, the linen-bandages, nevertheless, he entered not. So Simon Peter also cometh, following him, and entered into the tomb, and vieweth the linen-bandages lying, - and the napkin, which was upon his head, not, with the linen-bandages, lying, but apart, folded up into one place. Then, entered, therefore, the other disciple also, who had come first unto the tomb, and he saw and believed. For, not yet, knew they the Scripture, that he must needs, from among the dead, arise. The disciples, therefore, departed again, by themselves. Howbeit, Mary, remained standing against the tomb, outside, weeping. So then, as she wept, she stooped aside into the tomb, and beholdeth two messengers, in white garments, sitting, one at the head, and the other at the feet, where had been lying the body of Jesus. And, they, say unto her - Woman! why weepest thou? She saith unto them - They have taken away my Lord, and I know not where they have laid him. These things saying, she turned round, and seeth Jesus standing, and knew not that it was, Jesus. Jesus saith unto her - Woman! why weepest thou? Whom seekest thou? She, supposing he was, the gardener, saith unto him - Sir! If, thou, hast borne him hence, tell me where thou hast laid him; and, I, will take him away. Jesus saith unto her - Mary! She, turning saith unto him, in Hebrew - Rabboni! which meaneth, Teacher. Jesus saith unto her - Be not detaining me, for, not yet, have I ascended unto the Father; but be going unto my disciples, and say unto them - I am ascending unto my Father and your Father, and my God and your God. Mary the Magdalene cometh, bringing tidings unto the disciples - I have seen the Lord! and that these things he had said unto her.



And Jesus returned, in the power of the Spirit, into Galilee; and, a report, went out along the whole of the region, concerning him;

And after John was delivered up, Jesus came into Galilee, proclaiming the glad-message of God,

But, after the two days, he went forth from thence, into Galilee. For, Jesus himself, bare witness, that, a prophet, in his own fatherland, hath not, honour. So, when he came into Galilee, the Galilaeans welcomed him, having seen, all things, whatsoever he had done in Jerusalem during the feast; for, they also, went unto the feast.


In that season, heard Herod the tetrarch, the fame of Jesus: and he said unto his servants - This, is John the Immerser, - he hath arisen from the dead, for this cause, are the powers working mightily within him.

But, a birthday feast of Herod taking place, the daughter of Herodias danced in the midst, and pleased Herod; wherefore, with an oath, he promised to give her, whatsoever she should ask for herself; and, she, being led on by her mother, - Give me (saith she) here, upon a charger, the head of John the Immerser. read more.
And the king, though grieved, yet, because of the oaths and the guests, ordered it to be given; and sent and beheaded John in the prison. And his head was brought upon a charger, and given unto the maiden, and she brought it to her mother. And his disciples, going near, bare away the corpse, and buried him, and came and brought tidings unto Jesus.

And King Herod heard, - for, famous, had become his name; and he was saying - John the Immerser hath arisen from among the dead, and, for this cause, are the powers working mightily in him; But, others, were saying - It is Elijah, and, others were saying - A prophet, like one of the prophets! But, when Herod heard, he was saying - He whom I beheaded - John, the same, hath been raised.

And, an opportune day arriving, when Herod on his birthday made a feast for his nobles, and for the rulers of thousands and for the first men of Galilee, when the daughter of this very Herodias came in and danced, she pleased Herod and those reclining together, and, the king, said unto the damsel - Ask me what thou wilt, and I will give it thee; and he took an oath to her - Whatsoever thou shalt ask me, I will give thee, unto half my kingdom. read more.
And, going out, she said unto her mother - What shall I ask? and she said - The head of John the Immerser; And, coming in straightway, with hast, unto the king, she asked, saying - I desire, that, forthwith, thou give me, upon a charger, the head of John the Immerser. And, though the king was, very grieved, yet, by reason of the oaths, and of them who were reclining, he would not refuse her. And the king, straightway, sending off a guard, gave orders to bring his head. And, departing, he beheaded him in the prison, and brought his head upon a charger, and gave it unto the damsel - and, the damsel, gave it unto her mother. And, hearing of it, his disciples went and took away his corpse, and laid it in a tomb.

Now Herod the tetrarch heard of all the things which were coming to pass, and was utterly at a loss, because of its being said, by some, that, John, had been raised from the dead; and, by some, that, Elijah, had appeared; and, by others, that, some prophet of the ancients, had arisen. But Herod said - John, I myself, beheaded; but, who is this, concerning whom I am hearing such things as these? And he was seeking to see him.


And, he, answering, said - He who hath dipped with me his hand in the bowl, the same, will deliver me up.

Nevertheless, lo! the hand of him who is delivering me up, is with me upon the table.

Not, concerning you all, am I speaking, - for, I, know of whom I made choice; but -- that, the Scripture, might be fulfilled: He that feedeth on my bread, hath lifted up against me, his heel.

And, as they were reclining and eating, Jesus said - Verily, I say unto you - One from among you, will deliver me up, he that is eating with me. They began to be grieved, and to be saying unto him, one by one, - Can it be, I? And, he, said unto them - One of the twelve, he that is dipping with me into the onebowl: read more.
Because, the Son of Man, indeed, goeth his way, - according as it is written concerning him; but alas! for that man, through whom the Son of Man is being delivered up, - Well for him, if that man, had not been born!


And he was saying to them: Verily, say unto you - There, are, certain of those here standing, who shall in nowise taste of death, until they see the kingdom of God, already come in power.

From that time, began Jesus Christ to be pointing out to his disciples that he must needs, into Jerusalem, go away, and, many things, suffer, from the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be slain, - and on, the third day, arise. And, taking him aside, Peter began to rebuke him, saying - Mercy on thee Lord! In nowise, shall, this, befall thee. But, he, turning, said to Peter - Withdraw behind me, Satan! A snare, art thou of mine, because thou art not regarding the things of God, but the things of men. read more.
Then, Jesus said unto his disciples - If any one intendeth, after me, to come, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and be following me; For, whosoever intendeth, his life, to save, shall lose it, - but, whosoever shall lose his life, for my sake, shall find it. For what shall a man be profited, though, the whole world, he gain, and, his life, he forfeit? Or what shall a man give, in exchange for his life? For the Son of Man is destined to be coming, in the glory of his Father, with his messengers, - and, then, will he give back unto each one, according to his practice. Verily, I say unto you - There are some of those, here standing, who, indeed, shall in nowise taste of death, until they see the Son of Man, coming in his kingdom.

And he began to be teaching them - The Son of Man, must needs suffer many things, and be rejected by the Elders and the High-priests and the Scribes, - and be slain; and, after three days, arise. And, openly, was he speaking the word. And Peter, taking him aside, began to rebuke him. But, he, turning round and looking upon his disciples, rebuked Peter, and saith - Withdraw behind me, Satan! because thou art not regarding the things, of God, but the things, of men. read more.
And, calling near the multitude with his disciples, he said unto them - If anyone willeth, after me, to come, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and be following me. For, whosoever willeth, his own life, to save, shall lose it, but, whosoever shall lose his life for the sake of me and of the glad-message, shall save it; For, what doth it profit a man, to gain the whole world, and be made to forfeit his life? For what can a man, give, in exchange for his life? For, whosoever shall be ashamed of me and of my words, in this adulterous and sinful generation, the Son of Man also, will be ashamed, of him, whensoever he shall come, in the glory of his Father, with the holy messengers.

saying - The Son of Man must needs suffer, many things, and be rejected by the Elders and High priests and Scribes, and be slain, - and, on the third day, arise. And he was saying, unto all - If any one intendeth after me to come, Let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, - and be following me. For, whosoever intendeth, his life, to save, shall lose it; but, whosoever shall lose his life for my sake, the same, shall save it? read more.
For what doth a man profit, who hath gained the whole world, but hath lost, or been made to forfeit, himself? For, whosoever shall be ashamed of me, and of my words, of him, the Son of Man, will be ashamed, whensoever he shall come in his glory, and that of the Father, and of the holy messengers. But I tell you of a truth - There, are, some of those, here, standing, who shall in nowise taste of death, until they see the kingdom of God.



Now, as, these very things, they were telling, he himself, stood in their midst But, being agitated and becoming, afraid, they began to imagine, that, upon a spirit, they were looking. And he said unto them - Why are ye troubled? and for what cause do reasonings arise in your hearts? read more.
See my hands, and my feet, - that it is, I, myself: Handle me, and see! because, a spirit, hath not, flesh and bones, as ye perceive, I, have. Now, while yet they believed not for the joy, and were marvelling, he said unto them - Have ye anything to eat, here? And they gave unto him a piece of boiled fish; and, taking it before them, he did eat. And he said unto them - These, are my words, which I spake unto you yet being with you: That all the things that are written in the law of Moses and the Prophets and Psalms, concerning me, must needs be fulfilled. Then, opened he their mind, to understand the Scriptures; and said unto them - Thus, it is written, That the Christ, should suffer, and arise from among the dead on the third day; And that repentance for remission of sins should be proclaimed upon his name unto all the nations, - beginning from Jerusalem. Ye, are witnesses of these things. And lo! I, am sending forth the promise of my Father upon you; but tarry, ye, in the city, until ye be clothed, from on high, with power.

It being late, therefore, on that day, the first of the week, - and, the doors, having been made fast where the disciples were, for fear of the Jews, Jesus came, and stood in the midst, and saith unto them - Peace be unto you! and, this, saying he pointed out both his hands and his side unto them. The disciples, therefore, rejoiced, seeing the Lord. Jesus, therefore, said unto them, again, - Peace be unto you! Just as, my Father, sent me forth, I, also, send you. read more.
And, this, saying, he breathed strongly, and saith unto them - Receive ye Holy Spirit: - Whosesoever sins ye shall remit, they are remitted unto them, whosesoever ye shall retain, they are retained.


Then, went the Pharisees and took, counsel, that they might ensnare him, in discourse. And they sent forth to him their disciples, with the Herodians, saying, Teacher! we know that, true, thou art, and, the way of God, in truth, dost teach, and it concerneth thee not about anyone, - for thou lookest not unto the face of men: Tell us then, how, to thee, it seemeth? Is it allowable to give tax unto Caesar, or not? read more.
But Jesus, taking note of their wickedness, said - Why are ye tempting me, hypocrites? Shew me the coin appointed for the tax. And, they, brought unto him a denary. And he saith unto them - Whose, is this image and the inscription? They say - Caesar's. Then, saith he unto them - Render, therefore, the things of Caesar, unto Caesar, - and, the things of God, unto God. And, hearing, they marvelled, - and, leaving him, departed.

And they send forth unto him certain of the Pharisees and of the Herodians, that they might, catch, him, in discourse. And, coming, they say unto him - Teacher! we know that, true, thou art, and it concerneth thee not about anyone, - for thou lookest not unto the face of men; but, in truth, the way of God, dost teach: - Is it allowable to give tax unto Caesar, or not? Should we give, or should we not give? But, he, knowing their hypocrisy, said unto them - Why are ye, tempting, me? Bring me a denary, that I may see it. read more.
And, they, brought one. And he saith unto them - Whose, is this image, and the inscription? And, they, said unto him - Caesar's. And, Jesus, said - the things of Caesar, render, unto Caesar, and, the things of God, unto God. And they were marvelling at him.

And, watching narrowly, they sent forth suborned men, feigning themselves to be, righteous, that they might lay hold of a word of his, so as to deliver him up unto the rule and the authority of the governor. And they questioned him, saying - Teacher! we know that, rightly, thou speakest and teachest, and respectest no person, but, in truth, the way of God, dost teach: Is it allowable for us to give, unto Caesar, tribute, or not? read more.
But, observing their villainy, he said unto them - Shew me a denary. Of whom, hath it an image and inscription? And, they, said - Of Caesar. And, he, said unto them - Well then! render the things of Caesar, unto Caesar, and the things of God, unto God. And they could not lay hold of the saying, before the people; and, marvelling at his answer, they held their peace.


And lo! one coming near unto him, said, Teacher! what good thing shall I do, that I may have life age-abiding? And, he, said unto him - Why dost thou question me concerning that which is good? There is, One, that is good! But, if thou desirest, into life, to enter, be keeping the commandments. He saith unto him, Which? Jesus, said - These: Thou shalt not commit murder, Thou shalt not commit adultery, Thou shalt not steal, - Thou shalt not bear false witness; read more.
Honour thy father and thy mother, - and - Thou shalt love thy neighbour as, thyself. The young man saith unto him - These all, have I kept, - What, further, do I lack? Jesus said unto him - If thou desirest to be perfect, Withdraw! sell thy substance, and give to the destitute, - and thou shalt have treasure in the heavens; and come! be following me. And the young man, hearing, this word, went away sorrowing, - for he was holding large possessions.

And, as he was going forth into a road, one, running, and kneeling before him, was questioning him - Good Teacher! what shall I do that, life age - abiding, I may inherit? And, Jesus, said unto him - Why callest thou me, good? None, is good, save one - God. The commandments, thou knowest, - Do not commit murder, Do not commit adultery, Do not steal; Do not bear false witness, Do not defraud, Honour thy father and mother. read more.
And, he, said unto him - Teacher! all these things, have I kept, from my youth. And, Jesus, looking at him, loved him, and said unto him - One thing, unto thee, is wanting; - Withdraw! whatsoever thou hast, sell, and give unto thedestitute, - and thou shalt have treasure in heaven; and come! be following me. And, he, becoming gloomy because of the word, departed sorrowing, for he was holding, many possessions.

And a certain, ruler, questioned him, saying - Good Teacher! by doing what, shall I inherit life age-abiding? But Jesus said to him - Why, callest thou me, good? None, is good, save one - God. The commandments, thou knowest: - Do not commit adultery, Do not commit murder, Do not steal, Do not bear false witness, - Honour thy father and mother, read more.
And, he, said - All these things, have I kept from my youth. And Jesus, hearing, said unto him - Yet one thing, unto thee, is lacking: Whatsoever thou hast, sell, and distribute unto the destitute, - and thou shalt have treasure in theheavens; and come! be following me. But, he, hearing these things, became, encompassed with grief; for he was rich exceedingly. And Jesus, beholding him, said - With what difficulty, shall, they who have money, enter, into the kingdom of God.


On that day, there came unto him Sadducees, who say, there is, no resurrection - and they questioned him, saying - Teacher! Moses, said, If any man die not having children, his brother shall marry his wife, and raise up seed unto his brother. Now there were, with us, seven brethren; and, the first, marrying, died, and not having seed, left his wife unto his brother. read more.
Likewise, the second also, and the third, - unto the seven. And, last of all, died, the wife. In the resurrection, therefore, - Of which of the seven, shall she be wife? For, all, had her. And Jesus answering, said - Ye are deceiving yourselves, knowing neither the Scriptures, nor yet the power of God. For, in the resurrection, they neither marry, nor are given in marriage, but, as messengers in the heaven, are they. But, as touching the resurrection of the dead - Have ye not read what was spoken unto you by God, saying - I, am the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob? - He is not God, of the dead, but, of the living. And, the multitudes, hearing, were being struck with astonishment at his teaching.

And there come Sadducees unto him, - who, indeed say - Resurrection, there is none! and they were questioning him, saying - Teacher! Moses, wrote for us, that - If one's brother die, and leave behind a wife, and leave no child, that his brother should take his wife, and raise up seed unto his brother. Seven brethren, there were: and, the first, took a wife, and, dying, left no seed, - read more.
And, the second, took her, and died, not leaving behind seed, - and, the third, likewise, - And, the seven, left no seed; last of all, the woman also, died: - In the resurrection, - of, which, of them shall she be, wife? For, the seven, had her to wife. Jesus said unto them - Are ye not, for this cause, deceiving yourselves, knowing neither the Scriptures, nor the power of God? For, when, from among the dead, they rise, they neither marry, nor are given in marriage, but are like messengers in the heavens. But, as touching the dead, that they, do rise, - Have ye not read in the book of Moses, at the Bush, how God spake unto him, saying - I am the God of Abraham, and God of Isaac, and God of Jacob: - He is not a God of, dead, men, but of, living. Greatly, are ye deceiving yourselves.

But there came near certain of the Sadducees, they who say, Resurrection, there is none! and questioned him, saying - Teacher! Moses, wrote for us, If one's brother die, having a wife, and, he, be, childless, that his brother shall take the wife, and raise up seed unto his brother. Seven brethren, therefore, there were, - and, the first, taking a wife, died childless, read more.
And, the second, and the third, took her, - yea, likewise, even the seven; They left no children, and died: Later on, the woman also, died. The woman, therefore, in the resurrection, Of which of them, doth she become wife? for, the seven, had her to wife. And Jesus said unto them - The sons of this age, marry, and are given in marriage, - But, they who have been accounted worthy, that age, to obtain, and the resurrection that is from among the dead, neither marry, nor are given in marriage; For they cannot, even die any more, - for, equal unto messengers, are they, and are, sons of God, Of the resurrection, being, sons. But, that the dead do rise, even Moses, disclosed at the bush, when he calleth the Lord - The God of Abraham and God of Isaac and God of Jacob: Now, God, he is not, of the dead, but, of the living, - for, all, unto him, do live. And certain of the Scribes, answering, said - Teacher! Well, hast thou spoken. For, no longer, were they daring to ask him any questions.


Now they were in the way, going up unto Jerusalem, and Jesus was going on before them, - and they were in amazement; and, they who followed, were in fear. And, taking unto himself, again, the twelve, he began to be saying unto them, as to the things about to befall him - Lo! we are going up unto Jerusalem; and, the Son of Man, will be delivered up, unto the Chief-priests and the Scribes, - and they will condemn him to death, and deliver him up unto the nations; And they will mock him, and spit upon him, and scourge him, and, slay; - and, after three days, will he, arise.

And, Jesus, being about to go up unto Jerusalem, took unto him the twelve disciples, apart, and, in the way, he said unto them - Lo! we are going up unto Jerusalem; and, the Son of Man, will be delivered up unto the chief-priests and Scribes, and they will condemn him, to death, And deliver him up unto the nations, to mock and to scourge and to crucify, - and, on the third day, he will, arise.

And, taking aside the twelve, he said unto them - Lo! we are going up unto Jerusalem, and all the things will be finished, which have been written through means of the prophets, respecting the Son of Man; For he will be delivered up unto the nations, and be mocked, and insulted, and spit upon, - and, having scourged him, they will slay him, and, on the third day, will, he, arise. read more.
And, they, not one of these things, understood, and this saying was hidden from them, and the could not comprehend the things spoken.


And they were bringing unto him children, that he might, touch, them, - the disciples, however, were rebuking them. But Jesus, seeing it, was greatly displeased, and said unto them - Suffer the children to come unto me, - do not hinder them; for, of such, is the kingdom of God.

Then, wore brought unto him children, - that he might lay his hands upon them, and pray. And, the disciples, rebuked them. But, Jesus, said - Suffer the children - and do not hinder them - to come unto me, - for, of such, is the kingdom of the heavens. And, laying his hands upon them, he went his way from thence.

And they were bringing unto him, even the babes, that he might touch, them; but the disciples, seeing it, began to rebuke them. But, Jesus, called them near, saying - Suffer, the children, to be coming unto me, and do not hinder them; for, of such, is the kingdom of God. Verily I say unto you - Whosoever shall not welcome the kingdom of God, as a child, in nowise shall enter thereinto.


And, as they were going forth from Jericho, there followed him a great multitude; and lo! two blind men, sitting beside the road, hearing that Jesus was passing by, cried aloud saying - Lord! have mercy on us! Son of David! But the multitude rebuked them, that they might hold their peace. But, they, the more, cried aloud, saying - Lord, have mercy on us! Son of David! read more.
And, standing still, Jesus called them, and said - What desire ye I should do for you? They say unto him - Lord! that, our eyes, may open. And, moved with compassion, Jesus touched their eyes, - and, straightway, they recovered sight, and followed him.

And it came to pass, as he was drawing near unto Jericho, a certain blind man, was sitting beside the road, begging. And. hearkening unto a multitude moving along, he enquired, what this, might be. And they told him - Jesus of Nazareth, is passing by! read more.
And he cried aloud, saying - Jesus, son of David! have mercy upon me! And, they that were going before, began to rebuke him, that he might hold his peace. But, he, by so much the more, was crying out - O Son of David! have mercy upon me! And, standing still, Jesus commanded him to be led unto him; and, when he had drawn near, he questioned him - What desirest thou, I should do unto thee? And, he, said - Lord! -- that I may recover sight! And, Jesus, said unto him - Recover sight! Thy faith, hath saved thee. And, instantly, he recovered sight, and began to follow him, glorifying God. And, all the people, beholding, gave praise unto God.

And they come into Jericho. And, as he was journeying forth from Jericho, and his disciples, and a considerable multitude, the son of Timaeus, blind Bar-Timaeus, a beggar, was sitting beside the road. And, hearing that it was, Jesus the Nazarene, he began to be crying aloud, and saying - O Son of David! Jesus! have mercy on me.

And, on the first of the days of unleavened bread, the disciples came unto Jesus, saying - Where wilt thou, that we make ready for thee to eat the passover? And, he, said - Go your way into the city, unto such-a-one, and say to him, The teacher, saith, My season, is, near, with thee, will I keep the passover, with my disciples. And the disciples did, as Jesus directed them, and made ready the passover. read more.
And, when, evening, came, he was reclining with the twelve disciples; and, as they were eating, he said - Verily, I say unto you, One from among you, will deliver me up. And, being exceedingly grieved, they began to be saying to him, each one - Can it be, I, Lord? And, he, answering, said - He who hath dipped with me his hand in the bowl, the same, will deliver me up. The Son of Man, indeed, goeth his way, according as it is written concerning him, - But alas! for that man, through whom the Son of Man, is being delivered up: Well, had it been for him, if, that man, had not been born! And Judas, who was delivering him up, answering, said - Can it be, I, Rabbi? He saith unto him - Thou, hast said. And, as they were eating, Jesus, taking a loaf and blessing, brake, - and, giving to his disciples, said - Take, eat! This, is, my body. And, taking a cup, and giving thanks, he gave unto them, saying - Drink of it, all of you; For, this, is my blood of the covenant, which, for many, is to be poured out, for remission of sins. Moreover, I say unto you - In nowise, will I drink, henceforth, of this produce of the vine, until that day, whensoever I shall drink it with you, new, in the kingdom of my Father. And, having sung praise, they went forth unto the Mount of Olives.

And, on the first day of the unleavened cakes, when, the passover, they were slaying, his disciples say unto him - Where wilt thou, we depart and make ready, that thou mayest eat the passover? And he sendeth forth two of his disciples, and saith unto them - Go your way into the city, and there will meet you a man, a jar of water, bearing, - follow him; and, wheresoever he shall enter, say ye unto the householder - The teacher, saith, Where is my lodging, where, the passover, with my disciples, I may eat? read more.
And, he, unto you, will shew, a large upper-room, spread ready, and, there, make ye ready for us. And the disciples went forth, and came into the city, and found, according as he had said unto them, - and they made ready the passover. And, when evening arrived, he cometh, with the twelve. And, as they were reclining and eating, Jesus said - Verily, I say unto you - One from among you, will deliver me up, he that is eating with me. They began to be grieved, and to be saying unto him, one by one, - Can it be, I? And, he, said unto them - One of the twelve, he that is dipping with me into the onebowl: Because, the Son of Man, indeed, goeth his way, - according as it is written concerning him; but alas! for that man, through whom the Son of Man is being delivered up, - Well for him, if that man, had not been born! And, as they were eating, taking a loaf, he blessed and brake, and gave unto them, and said - Take! this, is, my body; And, taking a cup, he offered thanks, and gave unto them; and they, all, drank of it.

Verily, I say unto you - No more, will I in anywise drink of the fruit of the vine, until that day when I shall be drinking it new, in the kingdom of God.

Now the day of the unleavened bread a came, - on which it was needful to be sacrificing the passover. And he sent forth Peter and John, saying - Go, and make ready, for us, the passover, that we may eat. And, they, said unto him - Where wiliest thou, we should make ready? read more.
And, he, said unto them - Lo! when ye have entered into the city, there will meet you a man, bearing, an earthen-jar of water: follow him into the house into which he is entering. And ye shall say unto the master of the house - The teacher saith unto thee, where is the lodging, where, the passover, with my disciples, I may eat? And, he, unto you, will shew, a large upper room, spread: there, make ready. And, departing, they found according as he had said unto them, and made ready the passover. And, when the hour arrived, he reclined, and the apostles with him. And he said unto them - I have greatly desired, to eat, this passover, with you before I suffer; For, I say unto you - In nowise shall I eat it, until it have been fulfilled in the kingdom of God. And, accepting a cup, giving thanks, he said - Take this, and divide among yourselves; For, I say unto you - In nowise shall I drink henceforth of the fruit of the vine, until, the kingdom of God, shall come.

Then they brought unto him, one demonized, blind and dumb, - and he cured him, so that the dumb did speak and see. And all the multitudes were beside themselves, and were saying, Can, this one, be, the Son of David? But, the Pharisees, hearing it, said, This one, doth not cast out the demons, save in Beelzebul ruler of the demons. read more.
And, knowing their inward thoughts, he said unto them, Every kingdom divided against itself, is laid waste, - and, no city or house divided against itself, will stand; And, if, Satan, is casting, Satan, out, against himself, hath he become divided, - How then shall, his kingdom, stand? And, if, I, in Beelzebul, am casting out the demons, In whom are, your sons, casting them out? Wherefore, they, shall be, judges of you. But, if, in God's Spirit, I, am casting out the demons, then doubtless hath come upon you unawares, the kingdom of God! Or how can one enter the house of the mighty and, seize his goods, unless, first, he bind the mighty one? and, then, his house, he will plunder. He that is no with me, is, against me, - and, he that gathereth not with me, scattereth Wherefore, I say unto you, All sin and profane speaking, shall be forgiven unto men, - but, the speaking profanely of the Spirit, shall not be forgiven; And, whosoever shall speak a word against the Son of Man, it shall be forgiven him, - but, whosoever shall speak against the Holy Spirit, it shall not be forgiven him, either in this age, or the coming. Either make the tree good, and its fruit good, or make the tree worthless, and its fruit worthless; for, from the fruit, the tree is known. Broods of vipers! How can ye speak, good things, being, evil? For, out of the abundance of the heart, the mouth speaketh. The good man, out of the good treasure, putteth forth, good things; and, the evil man, out of the evil treasure, putteth forth, evil things. But I say unto you, That, every useless expression that men shall utter, they shall render, concerning it, an account, in a day of judgment; For, by thy words, shalt thou be, justified, and, by thy words, shalt thou be condemned.

and Judas Iscariot, who also delivered him up. And he cometh into a house; and the multitude come together again, so that they could not so much as eat bread. And they who were near to him, hearing of it, went out to secure him, - for they were saying - He is beside himself! read more.
And, the Scribes who from Jerusalem had come down, were saying - He hath, Beelzebul; and - In the ruler of the demons, casteth he out the demons. And, calling them near, in parables, began he to say unto them - How can, Satan, cast, Satan out? And, if a kingdom against itself be divided, that kingdom cannot be made to stand; And, if a house against itself be divided, the house shall be unable to stand; And, if, Satan, hath risen up against himself, and become divided, he cannot stand, but hath an end. But, no one is able into the house of the mighty one to enter, and, his spoils, to carry off, unless, first the mighty one, he bind, and, then his house, will he plunder! Verily, I say unto you - All things shall be forgiven unto the sons of men, - the sins and the profanities wherewithal they shall profane; But, whosoever shall revile against the Holy Spirit, hath no forgiveness, unto times age-abiding, - but is guilty of an age-abiding sin: because they were saying - An impure spirit, he hath!

And he was casting out a demon that was dumb; and it came to pass, when the demon went out, the dumb began speaking. And the multitudes marvelled; but, some from among them, said - In Beelzebul, the ruler of the demons, is he casting out the demons; and, others, putting him to the test, a sign out of heaven, were seeking from him. read more.
But, he, knowing their thoughts, said unto them - Every kingdom, against itself divided, is laid waste, and, a house, against a house, divided , falleth; And, if, even Satan, against himself hath become divided, how shall his kingdom stand? because ye are saying that, in Beelzebul, am I casting out the demons. But, if, I, in Beelzebul, am casting out the demons, In whom are, your sons, casting them out? Wherefore, they, shall be, your judges. But, if, with the finger of God, I, am casting out the demons, then doubtless unawares hath come upon you, the kingdom of God. Whensoever, the mighty one, armed, may be guarding his own dwelling, in peace, are his goods; But, whensoever, a mightier than he, shall come upon and vanquish him, his panoply, he taketh away, wherein he was trusting, and, his spoils, he distributeth. He that is not with me, is, against me; and, he that gathereth not with me, scattereth. Whensoever, the impure spirit, goeth out from the man, it passeth through waterless places, seeking rest; and, not finding it, then,it saith, I will return unto my house, whence I came out; - and, coming, findeth it, empty,swept, and adorned. Then, goeth it, and taketh along with itself, other spirits, more wicked than itself - seven, and, entering in, fixeth its dwelling there; and, the last state of that man, becometh, worse than the first.


And straightwayconstrained he the disciples to enter into a boat, and be going before him unto the other side, while he dismissed the multitudes. And, dismissing the multitudes, he went up into the mountain, apart, to pray, - and when, evening, came, alone, was he, there. Now, the boat, still many furlongs from the land, was holding off, being distressed by the waves, - for, the wind, was, contrary. read more.
And, in the fourth watch of the night, he came unto them, walking upon the sea. And, the disciples, seeing him, upon the lake walking, were troubled, - saying - It is, a ghost; and, by reason of their fear, they cried out. And, straightway, Jesus spake unto them, saying - Take courage! it is, I, - be not afraid. And, making answer, Peter said unto him, - Lord! if it is, thou, bid me come unto thee, upon the waters. And, he, said - Come! And, descending from the boat, Peter walked upon the waters, and came unto Jesus. But, seeing the wind, he was affrighted, and, beginning to sink, cried out, saying - Lord! save me! And, straightway, Jesus, stretching forth his hand, laid hold upon him and saith unto him - O little-of-faith! why didst thou doubt? And, when they came up into the boat, the wind abated. And, they in the boat, bowed down to him, saying - Truly, God's Son, thou art! And, going across, they came up the land, into Gennesaret. And, recognizing him, the men of that place, sent out into all that region, and they brought unto him all who were sick; and were beseeching him, that they might, only, touch the border of his mantle, and, as many as touched, were made quite well.

And, straightway, constrained he his disciples to enter into the boat, and be going forward to the other side, unto Bethsaida, - while, he, was dismissing the multitude. And, bidding them farewell, he departed into the mountain to pray. And, when, evening, came, the boat was in the midst of the sea, and, he alone, on the land. read more.
And, seeing them distressed in the rowing, for the wind was against them, about the fourth watch of the night, he cometh unto them, walking upon the sea, - and was wishing to pass by them. But, they, seeing him, upon the sea, walking, supposed that it was an apparition, and cried out aloud; for, all, saw him, and were troubled. But, he, straightway, talked with them, and saith unto them - Take courage! it is, I - be not afraid! And he went up unto them, into the boat, - and the wind lulled. And, exceedingly, within themselves, were they astonished; for they understood not by the loaves, - but their, heart, had been, hardened. And crossing over unto the land, they came unto Gennesaret, and cast anchor near. And, when they had, come forth, out of the boat, straightway, recognizing him, the people ran round the whole of that country, and began to be carrying round, upon couches, them who were sick, wherever they heard that he was. And, wheresoever he was entering into villages, or into cities, or into hamlets, in the marketplaces, laid they the sick, and were beseeching him, that, only the fringe of his mantle, they might touch, and, as many soever as touched it, were being made well.

Jesus, therefore, getting to know that they were about to come, and seize him, that they might make him king, retired again into the mountain, himself, alone. But, when evening came, his disciples went down unto the sea; and, entering into a boat, were going across the sea into Capernaum. And, dark, already, had it become, and, not yet, had Jesus reached them; read more.
moreover the sea, by reason of a great wind that blew, was rising high. Having therefore rowed about twenty-five or thirty furlongs, they observe Jesus, walking upon the sea, and, near the boat, coming; and they were affrighted. But, he, saith unto them - It is, I: be not affrighted! They were willing, therefore, to receive him into the boat; and, straightway, the boat was at land, whither they had been slowly going.


And Jesus returned, in the power of the Spirit, into Galilee; and, a report, went out along the whole of the region, concerning him;

And after John was delivered up, Jesus came into Galilee, proclaiming the glad-message of God,

And, hearing that, John, had been delivered up, he retired into Galilee;

When therefore the Lord knew, that the Pharisees had heard - Jesus, more disciples, is making and immersing, than John, - although indeed, Jesus himself, was not immersing, but his disciples, he left Judaea, and departed again into Galilee.


And, as they were being gathered together in Galilee, Jesus said unto them - The Son of Man is about to be delivered up into the hands of men; And they will slay him, and, on the third day, will he, arise. And they were grieved exceedingly.

And, from thence, going forth, they were journeying through Galilee, - and he was not wishing that any should get to know it; for he was teaching his disciples and saying unto them, The Son of Man, is to be delivered up, into the hands of men, and they will slay him, - and, being slain, after three days, will he arise. But they were not understanding the declaration, and feared, to question, him.

And they were all being struck with astonishment, at the majesty of God. And, while all were marvelling at all things which he was doing, he said unto his disciples: Lay, ye, up in your ears, these words; for, the Son of Man, is about to be delivered up, into the hands of men. But, they, understood not this saying, and it had become veiled from them, that they might not grasp it, - and they were afraid to question him, concerning this saying.


And, when they came unto the multitude, there approached him a man, falling on his knees to him, and saying - Lord! have mercy upon my son, - because he is lunatic, and in a grievous condition; For, many times, falleth he into the fire, and, many times, into the water. And I brought him unto thy disciples, and they could not cure, him. read more.
And Jesus, answering, said - O faithless and perverted generation! How long shall I be with you? How long shall I bear with you? Bring him to me, here. And Jesus rebuked it; and the demon came out of him, - and cured was the boy, from that hour. Then, the disciples, coming near, to Jesus, privately, said - Wherefore could, we, not cast it out? And, he, saith unto them - Because of your little faith. For, verily, I say unto you - If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say to this mountain, remove hence yonder; and it shall be removed, and, nothing, shall be impossible to you.

And, coming unto the disciples, they saw a large multitude around them, and Scribes discussing with them. And, straightway, all the multitude, seeing him, were greatly amazed, and, running near, began saluting him. And he questioned them - What are ye discussing with them? read more.
And one out of the multitude answered him - Teacher! I brought my son unto thee, having a dumb spirit; and, wheresoever it seizeth him, it teareth him, and he foameth, and grindeth his teeth, and weareth himself out; - and I spake to thy disciples, that they should cast it out, and they could not. But, he, answering, saith - O faithless generation! how long, shall I be with you? how long, shall I bear with you? Bring him unto me! And they brought him unto him. And, seeing him, the spirit, straightway tare him, - and, falling upon the ground, he wallowed, foaming. And he questioned his father - How long a time, is it, that, this, hath befallen him? and he said - From childhood; and, many times, hath it cast him, both into fire, and into waters, that it might destroy him; but, if anything be possible to thee, help us, have compassion upon us. And, Jesus, said unto him - As for this, If it be possible to thee, all things, are possible, to him who hath faith. Straightway crying out, the father of the child was saying - I have faith! help my, want, of faith. And Jesus, seeing that a multitude is running together, rebuked the impure spirit, saying unto it - Thou dumb and deaf spirit, I, give orders unto thee: Come forth out of him, and do not, any more, enter into him. And, crying out, and greatly mangling him, it came forth; and he became as if dead, so that, the more part, were saying - He is dead! But, Jesus, grasping his hand, raised him, and he stood up. And, when he had gone into a house, his disciples, privately, were questioning him - Why, were, we, not able to cast it out? And he said unto them - This kind, by nothing, can come out, save, by prayer.

And it came to pass, on the next day, when they came down from the mountain, that there met him a great multitude. And lo! a man from the multitude, uttered a cry, saying - Teacher! I beg of thee, to look upon my son, because, my only begotten, he is. And lo! a spirit, taketh him, and, suddenly, he crieth out, - and it convulseth him - with foaming, and with difficulty departeth from him, sorely bruising him. read more.
And I begged of thy disciples, that they would cast it out, and they could not. And, making answer, Jesus said - O faithless and perverted generation! how long shall I be with you, and bear with you? Bring, hither, thy son. And, while yet he was coming, the demon tare him, and mangled him. But Jesus rebuked the impure spirit, and healed the boy, and gave him back to his father. And they were all being struck with astonishment, at the majesty of God. And, while all were marvelling at all things which he was doing, he said unto his disciples:


OTHERWISE.

And he led them forth as far as unto Bethany; and, uplifting his hands, he blessed them. And it came to pass, while he was blessing them, he parted from them And, they, returned unto Jerusalem, with great joy; read more.
and were continually in the temple, blessing God.

And having said these things, as they were beholding, he was lifted up, and a cloud caught him away from their eyes. And, while they were looking steadfastly into heaven as he was going his way, then lo! two men had taken their stand beside them, in white garments, - Who also said - Men of Galilee! why stand ye looking into heaven? This Jesus who hath been taken up from you into heaven, shall so come, in like manner as ye yourselves have gazed upon him going into heaven. read more.
Then returned they into Jerusalem, from a mountain called Olivet, which is nigh unto Jerusalem a Sabbath day's journey.


And he began to be speaking unto them, in parables, - A man planted, a vineyard, and put round it a wall, and digged a wine-vat, and built a tower, - and let it out to husbandmen; and left home. And he sent forth, unto the husbandmen, in the season, a servant, that, from the husbandmen, he might receive of the fruits of the vineyard; and, taking him, they beat him, and sent him away, empty. read more.
And, again, sent he forth unto them, another servant; and, him, they smote on the head, and dishonoured. And another sent he forth; and, him, they slew. And many others; some, indeed beating, and, others, slaying. Yet one, had he, a son beloved: he sent him forth last unto them, saying - They will pay deference unto my son! But, those husbandmen, unto themselves, said - This, is the heir: Come! let us slay him, and, ours, shall be, the inheritance. And, taking, they slew him, and cast him forth outside the vineyard. What will the lord of the vineyard do? He will come, and destroy the husbandmen, and let the vineyard unto others. Have ye not, this scripture, read - A stone which the builders rejected, the same, hath become head of the corner! From the Lord, hath this come to pass, and is marvellous in our eyes? And they were seeking, to secure, him, - and were in fear of the multitude; for they perceived that, against them, the parable he had spoken. And, leaving him, they departed.

Another parable, hear ye: - A man there was, a householder, who planted a vineyard, and, a wall around it, placed, and digged in it a wine-vat, and built a tower, and let it out to husbandmen, - and left home. And, when the season of fruits drew near, He sent forth his servants unto the husbandmen to receive his fruits. And the husbandmen, taking his servants, one, indeed, they beat, and, another, slew, - and, another, stoned. read more.
Again, sent he forth other servants, more than the first, and they did unto them, likewise. Afterwards, however, he sent forth unto them his son, saying, - They will pay deference unto my son! But, the husbandmen, seeing the son, said among themselves, - This, is, the heir: Come on! Let us slay him, and have his inheritance. And, taking him, they cast him forth outside the vineyard, - and slew him. When therefore the master of the vineyard shall come, what will he do unto those husbandmen? They say unto him - Miserable men! Miserably, will he destroy them; and will let out, the vineyard, to other husbandmen, who will render unto him the fruits in their seasons. Jesus saith unto them - Have ye, never, read in the Scriptures, A stone which the builders rejected, the same, hath become, head of the corner: From the Lord, hath this come to pass, and is marvellous in our eyes. Wherefore I say unto you, The kingdom of God, will be taken away from you, and given to a nation bringing forth the fruits thereof: And, he that falleth on this stone, will be sorely bruised; but, on whomsoever it may fall, it will utterly destroy him. And the Chief-priests and the Pharisees, hearing his parables, took note, that, concerning them, he was speaking. And, seeking to secure him, they feared the multitudes; since, for a prophet, were they holding him.

And he began, unto the people, to be speaking this parable: - A man, planted a vineyard, and let it out to husbandmen, and went from home for a long time. And, in due season, he sent unto the husbandmen, a servant, that, of the fruit of the vineyard, they might give him; but, the husbandmen, having beaten him, sent him away empty. And he, further, sent another servant; but, they, beating, that one also, and dishonouring him, sent him away, empty. read more.
And he, further, sent, a third; but, they, bruising, this one also, thrust him out. And the lord of the vineyard said - What shall I do? I will send my son, the beloved, - It may be, that, him, they will respect. But he husbandmen, seeing him, began to deliberate one with another, saying - This, is, the heir: Let us slay him, that, ours, may be, the inheritance. And, thrusting him forth outside the vineyard, they slew him. What, then, will the lord of the vineyard do unto them? He will come, and destroy these husbandmen, and give the vineyard unto others. But, when they heard it, they said - Far be it! But, he, looking at them, said - What, then, is this that is written, - A stone which the builders' rejected, The same, hath become, head of the corner? Every one who falleth on that stone, will be sorely bruised, but, on whomsoever it shall fall, it will utterly destroy him. And the Scribes and the High-priests sought to thrust on him their hands, in that very hour; and feared the people; for they perceived that, against them, spake he this parable.


And there cometh one of the synagogue-rulers, by name Jairus, and, seeing him, falleth at his feet, and beseecheth him much, saying - My little daughter is at her last! - that, coming, thou wouldest lay thy hands upon her, that she may be made well, and live; and he departed with him. And there was following him a large multitude, and they were pressing upon him. read more.
And, a woman, who had had a flow of blood twelve years, and suffered much from many physicians, and spent all her means, and profited, nothing, - but had, rather, become worse, hearing the things about Jesus, came in the crowd from behind, and touched his mantle; for she was saying - If I can touch so much as his mantle, I shall be made well; and, straightway, the fountain of her blood was dried up, and she knew, in her body, that she was healed from the plague. And, straightway, Jesus, taking note in himself of the power which, out of him, went forth, turning round in the crowd, was saying - Who hath touched my garments? and his disciples were saying to him - Thou seest the crowd pressing upon thee, - and sayest thou - Who hath touched me? and he was looking round to see her who, this thing had done. And, the woman, overcome with fear, and trembling, knowing what had happened to her, came, and fell down before him, and told him all the truth. And, he, said to her - Daughter! thy faith hath made thee well; withdraw into peace, and be whole from thy plague. While yet he is speaking, they come from the synagogue-ruler's, saying - Thy daughter, is dead! Why, further, annoy the teacher? But, Jesus, overhearing the word being spoken, saith unto the synagogue-ruler - Do not fear, only have faith! And he suffered no one to follow with him, save Peter and James and John the brother of James. And they come into the house of the synagogue-ruler, and he observeth a tumult, and persons weeping and wailing greatly; and, entering, he saith unto them - Why are ye making a tumult, and weeping? The child, is, not dead, but, is sleeping; and they were deriding him. But, he, thrusting all forth, taketh with him the father of the child, and the mother, and them who were with him, - and entereth where the child was; and, grasping the hand of the child, he saith unto her - Talitha, koum! which is, when translated - O damsel! to thee, I say, Arise! And, straightway, the damsel arose, and was walking about; for she was twelve years of age. And they were beside themselves, straightway, with a great transport; and he commanded them, again and again, that, no one, should get to know this thing, - and bade that food should be given her to eat.

And lo! there came a man, whose name was Jairus, and, the same, was, a ruler of the synagogue, - and, falling down near the feet of Jesus, he began beseeching him to enter into his house; because he had, an only-begotten daughter, about twelve years old, and, she, was dying. Now, as he withdrew, the multitudes, were hemming him in. And, a woman, with a flow of blood of twelve years standing, who indeed could, from no one, be cured, read more.
coming near behind, touched the fringe of his mantle; and, instantly, was stayed the flow of her blood. And Jesus said - Who, is it that touched me? And, when all were denying, Peter said - Master! the multitudes, are hemming thee in, and pressing along. But, Jesus, said - Some one touched me, for, I, took note of power, gone out from me. And, the woman seeing that she had not escaped notice, trembling, came, and, falling down before him, reported before all the people, for what cause she had touched him, and how she was healed instantly! And, he, said to her - Daughter! thy faith, hath saved thee: Go thy way into peace. While yet he is speaking, there cometh one from the synagogue ruler's, saying - Thy daughter, is dead: No further, be troubling the teacher. But, Jesus, hearing, answered him - Do not fear! Only believe, and she shall be saved. And, when he came into the house, he suffered no one to enter with him, save Peter and John and James, and the father of the girl, and the mother. And they were all weeping, and beating themselves, for her. And he said - Be not weeping; for she died not, but is sleeping. And they were deriding him, knowing that she died. But, he, grasping her hand, called aloud, saying - O girl! arise! And her spirit returned, and she rose up instantly, and he ordered that something should be given her to eat. And her parents were beside themselves. But, he, charged them to tell, no one, what had happened.

While, these things, he was speaking unto them, lo! a certainruler, came, and began bowing down to him, saying, - My daughter, just now died! But come, and lay thy hand upon, her, and she shall live. And Jesus, arising, was following him, also his disciples. And lo! a woman, having a flow of blood twelve years, coming near behind, touched the fringe of his mantle. read more.
For she kept saying within herself, - If only I touch his mantle, I shall be made well! And, Jesus, turning and seeing her, said, - Take courage! daughter, Thy faith, hath made thee well. And the woman was made well, from that hour. And, Jesus, coming, into the house of the ruler, and seeing the flute-players and the multitude in confusion, was saying: Give place! for the maiden died not, but is sleeping. And they began to deride him. But, when the multitude had been put forth, he went in, and grasped her hand, - and the maiden arose. And forth went this report, into the whole of that land.


And it came to pass, as he was reclining in the house, that 1o! many tax-collectors and sinners, came, and were reclining together with Jesus and his disciples. And, the Pharisees, observing it, began to say unto his disciples, - Wherefore, with tax-collectors and sinners, doth your Teacher eat? And, he, hearing it, said, - No need have the strong, of a physician, but they who are sick. read more.
But go ye, and learn what this meaneth, - Mercy, I desire, and not, sacrifice; For I came, not to call the righteous, but sinners. Then come near unto him the disciples of John, saying, - Wherefore do, we, and the Pharisees, fast, whereas, thy disciples, fast not? And Jesus said unto them, - Can, the sons of the bridechamber, mourn, so long as, the bridegroom, is, with them? But days will come, when the bridegroom, shall be taken from them, and, then, will they fast. Howbeit, no one, layeth on a patch of unshrunk cloth, upon an old garment, - for the shrinking of it teareth away from the garment, and, a worse rent, is made. Neither pour they new wine into old skins: otherwise at least, the skins are burst, and, the wine, runneth out, and, the skins, are spoiled, - but they pour new wine into unused skins, and, both, are together preserved.

And it cometh to pass, that he is reclining in his house, and many tax-collectors and sinners were reclining with Jesus and his disciples; for there were many, and they began following him. And the Scribes and Pharisees, seeing that he was eating with the sinners and the tax-collectors, began saying unto his disciples - With the tax-collectors and sinners, is he eating? And, hearing it, Jesus saith unto them - No need, have the strong of a physician, but they who are sick, I came not to call the righteous, but sinners. read more.
And the disciples of John and the Pharisees were fasting; and they come and say unto him - For what cause, do, the disciples of John and the disciples of the Pharisees, fast, whereas, thy disciples, fast not? And Jesus said unto them - Is it possible for the sons of the bridechamber, while the bridegroom is with them, to be fasting? So long as they have the bridegroom with them, it is impossible, to fast. But there will come days, when the bridegroom shall be taken from them, and, then, they will fast, in that day. No one, seweth a patch of unshrunk cloth upon an old mantle, - otherwise, at least, the shrinking teareth away from it - the new from the old - and, a worse rent is made. And, no one, poureth new wine into fold skins, - otherwise, at least, the wine will burst the skins, and the wine is lost, and, the skins. But new wine is for unused skins.

And Levi made a great reception for him, in his house, and there was a great multitude of tax-collectors, and others, - who were with them reclining. And the Pharisees and their Scribes began murmuring unto his disciples, saying - Wherefore, with the tax-collectors and sinners, are ye eating and drinking? And, answering, Jesus said unto them - No need, have, the whole, of a physician, but, they who are sick. read more.
I have not come to call, righteous, men, but, sinners, unto repentance. But, they, said unto him - The disciples of John, do fast much, and, supplications, do make, - likewise also the disciples of the Pharisees; but, thine, do eat and drink! Jesus, however, said unto them - Can, ye make, the sons of the bridechamber, fast, while the bridegroom is with them? But there will come days, even when the bridegroom shall be taken from them, then, will they fast, in those days. Moreover, he went on to speak, a parable also, unto them - No one, rending a patch from a new mantle, patcheth it upon an old mantle; otherwise, at least, both, the new, he will rend, and, with the old, the patch which is from the new, will not agree. And, no one, poureth new wine into old skins; otherwise, at least, the new wine, will burst the skins, and will, itself, be poured out, and the skins be destroyed. But, new wine, into unused skins, must be poured. No one, having drunk old, desireth new; for he saith, The old, is, mellow.


And Jesus, coming into the house of Peter, saw his mother-in-law laid prostrate and in a fever, and he touched her hand, and the fever left her, - and she arose, and began ministering unto him. But, when, evening, came, they brought unto him many demonized, - and he cast out the spirits with a word, and, all who were sick, he cured: read more.
that it might be fulfilled, which was spoken through Isaiah the prophet, saying, - Himself, our weaknesses, took, and, diseases, bare.

And, straightway, out of the synagogue, going forth, he went unto the house of Simon and Andrew, with James and John.

And, rising up, from the synagogue, he went into the house of Simon. Now, the mother-in-law of Simon, was in distress with a great fever; and they made request to him concerning her. And, standing over her, he rebuked the fever, and it left her; and, instantly arising, she began to minister unto them.

And demons also were going forth from many; crying aloud, and saying - Thou, art the Son of God. And, rebuking them, he suffered them not be talking; because they knew him to be, The Christ.


And he saith unto them, on that day, when evening came, Let us cross over unto the other side; and, dismissing the multitude, they take him with them, as he was, in the boat, and, other boats, were with him.

And he was in the stern, on the cushion, sleeping. And they arouse him, and say unto him, Teacher! carest thou not that we perish? And, roused up, he rebuked the wind, and said unto the sea - Hush! be still! and the wind lulled, and it became a great calm. And he said unto them - Why, are ye, fearful? Not yet, have ye faith? And they were caused to fear a great fear, and were saying one to another - Who then is, this, that, both the wind and the sea, give ear unto him?

And it came to pass, on one of the days, that, he, entered into a boat, and his disciples; and he said unto them - Let us pass over unto the other side of the lake. And they set sail. Now, as they were sailing, he fell asleep. And there came down a hurricane of wind upon the lake, and they began to be filled, and to be in peril. And, coming near, they roused him up, saying - Master! Master! we perish! And, he, roused up, rebuked the wind, and the surging of the water; and they ceased, and it became a calm. read more.
And he said unto them - Where was your faith? But, struck with fear, they marvelled, saying one to another - Who then is, this, - that, even unto the winds, he giveth orders, and unto the water, and they hearken unto him.

Now Jesus, seeing a multitude about him, gave orders to depart unto the other side. And a certain scribe, coming near, said unto him, - Teacher; I will follow thee, whithersoever Thou goest. And Jesus saith unto him: The foxes, have, dens, and, the birds of the heavens, nests, - but, the Son of Man, hath not where, his head he may recline. read more.
And, another of the disciples, saith unto him, - Lord! suffer me, first, to depart, and bury my father. But, Jesus, saith unto him, - Be following me, and leave, the dead, to bury, their own dead. And, when he, entered, into a boat, his disciples followed him. And 1o! a great squall, arose in the sea, so that, the boat, was being covered, by the waves, - but, he, was sleeping. And, coming near, they aroused him, saying, Master! save, we perish! And he saith unto them, Why, are ye, fearful, little of faith? Then, aroused, he rebuked the winds and the sea, - and it became a great calm. But, the men, marveled, saying, Whence is this one, - that, both the winds and the sea, unto him, give ear?


And Jesus was going round throughout all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, and proclaiming the glad-message of the kingdom, - and curing every disease, and every infirmity, among the people. And forth went the report of him into all Syria; and they brought unto him all who were sick, with divers diseases and tortures, distressed, demonized and lunatic and paralyzed, - and he cured them. And there followed him large multitudes - from Galilee, and Decapolis, and Jerusalem, and Judaea, and across the Jordan.

and he saith unto them - Let us be going elsewhere, into the neighbouring country-towns, in order that, there also, I may be making proclamation, - for, to this end, came I forth; and he came, making proclamation, into their synagogues, throughout the whole of Galilee, - and, was casting the demons out.

And, when it was day, going forth, he journeyed into a desert place; and, the multitudes, were seeking after him, and they came unto him, and would have detained him, that he might not depart from them. But, he, said unto them - To the other cities also, I must needs tell the good-news of the kingdom of God, because, hereunto, was I sent forth. And he was proclaiming in the cities of Judaea.


And, walking round beside the sea of Galilee, he saw two brethren - Simon who is called Peter, and Andrew his brother, - casting a large fishing-net into the sea, for they were fishers; and he saith unto them, Come after me, - and I will make you fishers, of men.

And it came to pass, while the multitude was pressing upon him, and was hearing the word of God, that, he, was standing near the lake of Gennesaret; and he saw two boats placed near the lake, and, the fishers, having gone away, from them, were washing their nets. And, entering into one of the boats, which was Simon's, he requested him, to put off from the land, a little; and, taking a seat, out of the boat, began he teaching the multitudes. read more.
And, when he ceased speaking, he said unto Simon - Put off into the deep, and let down your nets for a draught. And Simon, answering, said - Master! although through the whole night we toiled, we took, nothing; howbeit, at thy bidding, I will let down the nets. And, when this they had done, they enclosed a very large number of fishes, and their nets began to break. And they made signs to their partners in the other boat, to come and help them; and they came, and filled both the boats, - so that they began to sink. And Simon, beholding, fell down at the knees of Jesus, saying - Depart from me! Because, a sinful man, am I, O Lord! For, amazement, overcame him, and all them who were with him, on account of the draught of the fishes which they had taken; likewise also, both James and John, sons of Zebedee, who were partners with Simon. And Jesus said unto Simon - Do not fear! henceforth, shall thou be taking, men, that they may, live. And, bringing the boats down on to the land, they left all, and followed him.

But, Jesus, happening to be in Bethany, in the house of Simon the leper, there came unto him a woman, holding an alabaster-jar of costly perfume, and she poured it down upon his head, as he was reclining. And the disciples, seeing it, were greatly displeased, saying - To what end, this loss? read more.
For this could have been sold for much, and given to the destitute. But Jesus, taking note, said unto them - Why vex ye the woman? for, a seemly work, hath she wrought for me; For, always, the destitute, have ye with you, - but, me, not always, have ye; For, she, pouring this perfume upon my body, so as to prepare me for burial, did it. Verily, I say unto you - Wheresoever this glad-message shall be proclaimed in all the world, also what she did, will be told, as a memorial of her.

And, he being in Bethany, in the house of Simon the leper, as he was reclining, there came a woman, holding an alabaster-jar of perfume, pure spikenard, very costly; and breaking the jar she was pouring down the perfume , upon his head. But there were some much displeased among themselves - To what end hath, this waste of the perfume happened? For this perfume could have been sold for above three hundred denaries, and given unto the destitute! and they were indignant with her. read more.
But, Jesus, said - Let her alone! Why are ye reproaching, her? A seemly work, hath she wrought, in me; For, always, have ye, the destitute, with you, and whensoever ye please, ye can, unto them, at any timedo well! But, me, not, always, have ye. What she had, she used, - She took it beforehand to anoint my body for the burial; And, verily, say unto you - Wheresoever the glad-message shall be proclaimed throughout the whole world, - also what she did, will be told for a memorial of her.

Jesus, therefore, six days before the passover, came unto Bethany, where Lazarus was, whom Jesus had raised from among the dead. So they made for him a supper, there; and, Martha, was ministering, but, Lazarus, was one of them who were reclining with him. Mary, therefore, taking a pound of pure nard perfume, very precious, anointed the feet of Jesus, and wiped, with her hair, his feet; and, the house, was filled with the fragrance of the perfume. read more.
ButJudas Iscariot, one of his disciples, he that was about to deliver him up, saith - Why was, this perfume, not sold for three hundred denaries, and given unto the destitute? Howbeit he said this, not that, for the destitute, he cared, but because, a thief, he was, and holding, the bag, used to carry away, what was cast therein. Jesus, therefore, said - Let her alone, that, for the day of my burial, she may observe it; For, the destitute, always, have ye with you, whereas, me, not always, have ye.


And it came to pass, in those days, that Jesus came from Nazareth of Galilee, and was immersed into the Jordan by John; And, straightway, as he was coming up out of the water, he saw the heavens rending asunder, and, the Spirit, as a dove, descending unto him; and a voice cameout of the heavens - Thou, art my Son, the Beloved, - In thee, I delight.

Then, cometh Jesus, from Galilee to the Jordan, unto John, - to be immersed by him. But, he, would have hindered him, saying - I, have, need, by thee, to be immersed, - and dost, thou, come unto me? But Jesus answering, said unto him, Suffer me even now, - for, thus, it becometh us, to fulfil, all righteousness; then, he suffered him. read more.
And Jesus, having been immersed, straightway, went up from the water, - and lo! the heavens were opened and he saw the Spirit of God, descending like a dove coming upon him; and lo! a voice out of the heavens, - saying, This, is my Son, the Beloved, in whom I delight.

Now it came to pass, when one and all the people were immersed, Jesus also, having been immersed, and being at prayer, heaven was opened; and the Holy Spirit descended, in bodily appearance, as a dove, upon him, - and, a voice out of heaven, came - Thou, art my Son, the Beloved, in thee, I delight. And, Jesus himself, was, when he began, about thirty years of age, being the son, as was supposed - of Joseph, of Heli:


And, when he, came, unto the other side, into the country of the Gadarenes, there met him, two men demonized, out of the tombs, coming forth, - fierce exceedingly, so that no one could pass that way; and lo! they cried aloud, saying, What have we in common with thee, O Son of God? Hast thou come hither, before the right time, to torment us? Now there was, far from them, a herd of many swine, feeding; read more.
and, the demons, began to beseech him, saying, If thou dost cast us out, send us away, into the herd of swine. And he said unto them, Withdraw! So, they, going out, departed into the swine, - and lo! all the herd rushed down the cliff, into the sea, and died in the waters. And, they who were feeding them, fled, - and, departing into the city, reported all things, and what concerned them who had been demonized.

And they came unto the other side of the sea, into the country of the Gerasenes. And, when he went forth out of the boat, straightway, there met him, from amongst the tombs, a man, in an impure spirit: who had his dwelling among the tombs, and, not even with a chain, any longer, was anyone able to bind him, - read more.
because of his having been, many times, with fetters and chains, bound, and the chains having been plucked asunder by him, and the fetters smashed, and no one was mighty enough to tame him; and, continually, night and day, in the tombs and in the mountains, was he crying aloud, and cutting himself in pieces with stones. And, seeing Jesus from afar, he ran and bowed down to him; and, crying out with a loud voice, saith - What have in common with thee? O Jesus, Son of God Most High? I adjure thee by God, - Do not torment me! For he was saying to him - Go forth thou impure spirit, out of the man; and he was questioning him - What is thy name? and he saith to him - Legion, is my name, because we are, many; and he was beseeching him much that he would not send them forth outside the country. Now there was there, near the mountain, a large herd of swine, feeding; and they besought him, saying - Send us into the swine, that, into them, we may enter; and he suffered them. And the impure spirits, going out, entered into the swine, and the herd rushed down the cliff into the sea, about two thousand, and were choked in the sea. And, they who had been feeding them, fled, and bare tidings into the city and into the fields, - and they came to see what it was that had happened. And they come unto Jesus, and view the demonized man, clothed and of sound mind, him who had had the legion, - and they were struck with fear. And the beholders narrated to them, how it happened to the demonized man, and concerning the swine. And they began to beseech him, to depart from their bounds. And, as he was entering into the boat, he who had been demonized was beseeching him, that, with him, he might be. And he suffered him not, but saith unto him - Withdraw into thy house, unto thine own, and bear tidings unto them, how many things the Lord for thee hath done, and hath had mercy on thee. And he departed, and began proclaiming, in the Decapolis, how many things Jesus had done for him, - and, all, were marvelling. And, Jesus crossing over in the boat again unto the other side, there was gathered a large multitude unto him, and he was by the lake.

And they sailed down into the country of the Gerasenes, the which is over against Galilee. And, when he went forth upon the land, there met him a certain man, out of the city, having demons; and, for a considerable time, he had put on no garment, and, in a house, would not abide, but among the tombs. But, seeing Jesus, he cried out aloud, and fell down before him, and, with a loud voice, said - What have I in common with thee, O Jesus, Son of Godthe Most High? I beg of thee - Do not torment me! - read more.
for he was about to charge the impure spirit to come out from the man. For, many times, had it snatched him away; and he used to be bound with chains and fetters, for a safe-guard, and was wont to break in pieces the bonds, and to be driven by the demon into the deserts. And Jesus questioned him - What name hast thou? And, he, said - Legion! because many demons had entered into him. And they were beseeching him that he would not order them, into the abyss, to depart. Now there was there, a herd of a good many swine, feeding in the mountain; and they besought him, that he would suffer them, into those, to enter; and he suffered them. And the demons, going forth from the man entered into the swine; and the herd rushed down the cliff, into the lake, and were choked. And they who had been feeding them, seeing what had happened, fled, and carried tidings into the city, and into the country-places. And they went forth to see what had happened; and came unto Jesus, and found the man from whom the demons had gone forth, sitting, clothed, and of sound mind, near the feet of Jesus, - and they were struck with fear. And they who had seen it, reported unto them, how the demonized man was saved. And one and all of the throng of the surrounding country of the Gerasenes, requested him, to depart from them; because, with a great fear, were they oppressed. And, he, entering into a boat, returned. And the man from whom the demons had gone forth, began to beg of him, that he might be with him; but he dismissed him, saying - Be returning unto thy house, and telling forth what great things, God, for thee, hath done. And he departed, through all the city, proclaiming what great things, Jesus, had done for him. Now, when Jesus returned, the multitude welcomed him back, for they were all expecting him.


And, after six days, Jesus taketh with him, Peter and James and John his brother, and bringeth them up into a high mountain, apart; and was transformed before them, - and his face shone as the sun, and, his garments, became white as the light. And lo! there appeared to them Moses and Elijah, conversing with him. read more.
And Peter, answering, said unto Jesus - Lord! it is, delightful, for us, to be here, - If thou wilt, I will make here three tents, for thee, one, and, for Moses, one, and, for Elijah, one. While yet he was speaking, lo! a brightly shining cloud, overshadowed them, and lo! a voice, out of the cloud, saying - This, is, my Son, the Beloved, in whom I delight, - Be hearkening to him. And, hearing it, the disciples fell upon their face, and were caused to fear exceedingly. And Jesus came near, and, touching them, said - Arise! and be not afraid. And, lifting up their eyes, no one, saw they, save Jesus, himself, alone. And, as they were coming down out of the mountain, Jesus commanded them, saying - Unto no one, may ye tell the vision, until the Son of Man, from among the dead shall arise. And the disciples questioned him, saying - Why then do, the Scribes, say, that, Elijah, must needs come, first? And, he, answering, said - Elijah, indeed, cometh, and will restored all things; But, I say unto you - that, Elijah, just now, came, - and they recognised him not, but did with him, whatsoever they pleased: Thus, the Son of Man also, is destined to suffer by them. Then, perceived the disciples, that, concerning John the Immerser, he spake to them.

And, after six days, Jesus taketh with him Peter and James and John, and bringeth them up into a high mountain, apart, alone, - and he was transformed before them; and his garments became brilliant, exceeding white, such as, no fuller on the earth, is able, so, to whiten. And there appeared unto them Elijah, with Moses, - and they were conversing with Jesus. read more.
And Peter, answering, saith unto Jesus - Rabbi! it is, delightful, for us to be, here, - let us therefore make three tents, for thee, one, and, for Moses, one, and, for Elijah, one; for he knew not what he should answer, for, greatly affrighted, had they become. And there came a cloud, overshadowing them, and there came a voice, out of the cloud, - This is, my Son, the Beloved, Be hearkening unto him. And, suddenly looking round, no longer, saw they, anyone, with them, save, Jesus only. And, as they were coming down out of the mountain, he charged them, that, unto no one, they should narrate what they had seen, save whenever the Son of man, from among the dead should arise. And, the word, they held fast unto themselves, discussing what was, the rising from among the dead. And they began to question him, saying - The Scribes, say, that, Elijah, must needs come, first? And, he, said unto them - Elijah, indeed, coming first, restoreth all things; and yet, how is it written, regarding the Son of Man, that, many things, he must suffer, and be set at nought? But I say unto you - Elijah also, hath come, and they have done with him, whatsoever they pleased, - according as it is written regarding him.

And it came to pass, after these words, about eight days, taking with him Peter and John and James, he went up into the mountain to pray. And it came to pass, while he was praying, that, the appearance of his face, was changed, and, his clothing, became white, effulgent. And lo! two men, were conversing with him, who, indeed, were Moses and Elijah, - read more.
who, appearing in glory, were speaking as to his departure, which he was about to fulfil in Jerusalem. Now, Peter, and they who were with him, had become heavy with sleep; but, waking up, they saw his glory, and the two men who were standing with him. And it came to pass, when they were being parted from him, Peter said unto Jesus - Master! it is, delightful, for us to be, here: Let us, therefore, make three tents, one for thee, and one for Moses, and one for Elijah: - not knowing what he said. Now, while he was saying these things, there came a cloud, and it began to overshadow them, - and they were overcome with fear as they entered into the cloud. And, a voice, came out of the cloud, saying - This, is my Son, the Chosen One: Unto him, be hearkening. And, when the voice came, there was found, Jesus alone. And they held their peace, and, unto no one, reported they, in those days, any of the things which they had seen.


On that day, Jesus, going out of the house, was sitting near the sea: and there were gathered unto him, large multitudes, so that, he, into a boat, entered, and was sitting, and, all the multitude, on the beach was standing. And he spake unto them many things, in parables, saying: Lo! the sower went forth to sow, - read more.
and, as he sowed, some, indeed, fell by the pathway, and, the birds, came, and devoured it; And, some, fell on the rocky places, where it had not much earth, - and, straightway, it sprang up, because if had no depth of earth; and, the sun arising, it was scorched, and, because it had no root, it withered away; And, some, fell upon the thorns, and the thorns came up, and choked it; But, some, fell upon the good ground, and did yield fruit, - this, indeed a hundred fold, and, that, sixty, and, the other, thirty. He that hath ears, let him hear. And the disciples, coming near, said to him, Wherefore, in parables, art thou speaking to them? And, he, answering, said, Because, unto you, hath it been given, to get to know the sacred secrets of the kingdom of the heavens, - whereas, unto them, hath it not been given. For, whosoever hath, it shall be given, to him, and he shall be made to abound, - but, whoever hath not, even what he hath, shall be taken from him? For this reason, in parables, unto them, do I speak, - because, seeing, they see not, and, hearing, they hear not, - neither do they understand. And, again is being fulfilled in them, the prophecy of Isaiah, which saith, - They shall, surely hear, and yet will not understand, and, surely see, and yet not perceive; For the heart of this people hath become dense, and, with their ears, heavily have they heard, and, their eyes, have they closed, - lest, once they should see with their eyes, and, with their ears, should hear, and, with their hearts, should understand, and return; when I would certainly heal them. But happy are, your, eyes, that they see, and your ears, that they hear; For, verily, I say unto you - Many prophets and righteous men, have coveted to see what ye see, and have not seen, and to hear what ye hear, and have not heard. Hear, ye, then, the parable of him that sowed: - When anyone heareth the word of the kingdom, and understandeth it not, the wicked one cometh, and catcheth up that which hath been sown in his heart, - this, is he, by the pathway, sown. And, he on the rocky places sown, the same, is he that, heareth the word, and, straightway, with joy, receiveth it; yet hath he no root in himself, but is, only for a season, - and, there arising, tribulation or persecution because of the word, straightway, he findeth cause of stumbling. And, he among the thorns sown, the same, is he that, heareth the word, - and, the anxiety of the age and the deceit of riches, choke up the word, and, unfruitful, it becometh. But, he on the good ground sown, the same, is he who doth hear and understand the word, who, indeed, beareth fruit and produceth, - this, a hundred, and, that, sixty, and, the other, thirty.

And, again, began he to be teaching by the sea; and there come together unto him a very great multitude, so that, he, into a boat, entering, was sitting upon the sea, - -and, all the multitude, were, near the sea upon the land. And he began to teach them, in parables, many things, and was saying unto them, in his teaching - Hearken! Lo! the sower went forth to sow; read more.
And it came to pass, as he sowed, some, indeed, fell by the pathway, and the birds came, and devoured it; And, some, fell on the rocky places, evenwhere it had not much earth, - and, straightway, it sprang forth, by reason of its not having depth of earth; and, when the sun arose, it was scorched, - and, by reason of its not having root, it was dried up; And, some, fell among the thorns, and the thorns came up and choked it, and, fruit, it yielded not; And, other, fell into the good ground, and was yielding fruit, coming up and growing, - and was bearing, thirtyfold and sixtyfold and a hundredfold, And he was saying - He that hath ears to hear, let him hear! And when he was alone they who were about him with the twelve questioned him as to the parables; and he was saying unto them - To you, the sacred secret hath been given of the kingdom of God, whereas, to them who are outside, in parables are all things coming to pass, - that They may surely look and yet not see, and surely hear and yet not understand, lest once they should return and it be forgiven them. And he saith unto them - Know ye not this parable? How then will ye get to know all the parables? The sower, soweth the word; And these are they beside the pathway where the word is sown, - and, as soon as they hear, straightway, cometh Satan, and snatcheth away the word which hath been sown into them; And these are likewise they upon the rocky places sown, - who, as soon as they hear the word, straightway, with joy receive it, and have no root in themselves, but, only for a season are, - afterwards, when there ariseth tribulation or persecution by reason of the word, straightway, they find cause of stumbling; And others are they who among thorns are sown, - these are they who hear the word, and, the anxieties of the age, and the deceit of wealth, and the covetings about the remaining things, entering in, choke up the word, and, unfruitful, it becometh; And those yonder are they who on the good ground are sown, - who, indeed, hear the word, and accept it, and bear fruit - thirtyfold and sixtyfold and a hundredfold. And he was saying unto them - Doth the lamp come that under the measure it should be put, or under the couch? Is it not that upon the lampstand it may be put? For it is not hidden, save that it may be made visible; neither did it get hidden away, but that it might come into a place where it could be seen. If any one hath ears to hear, let him hear. And he was saying unto them - Be taking heed what ye are hearing: - with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured unto you, and added unto you; For, he that hath, it shall be given, unto him, and, he that hath not, even what he hath, shall be taken from him.

And, seeing that a great multitude were coming together, and they who from every city were journeying forth unto him, he spake through means of a parable: - The sower went forth to sow his seed, - and, as he sowed, some, indeed, fell beside the pathway, and was trodden down; and, the birds of heaven, devoured it. And, other, fell down upon the rock; and, growing, was withered, because it had not moisture. read more.
And, other, fell and thorns; and, growing together, the thorns, choked it. And, other, fell into good ground; and, growing, brought forth fruit, a hundredfold. These things, saying, he went on to cry aloud - He that hath ears to hear, let him hear. But his disciples began to question him - What might, this very, parable be? And, he, said - Unto you, hath it been given, to get to know the sacred secrets of the kingdom of God; but, unto the rest, in parables, - in order that, seeing, they may not see, and, hearing, they may not understand. Now the parable, is this - The seed, is, the word of God. And, those beside the pathway, are they who have heard; afterwards, cometh the adversary, and catcheth away the word from their heart, lest, believing, they should, be saved. And, those upon the rock, are they who, as soon as they hear, with joy, welcome the word; and, these, not having, root, are they who, for a season, believe, - and, in a season of testing, draw back. And, that which in among the thorns fell, these, are they who have heard; and, by anxieties and wealth and pleasures of life being borne along, are choked up, and bear not to perfection. But, that in the good ground, these, are they who, indeed, in a noble and good heart having heard the word, hold fast, and bear fruit with endurance. And, no one having lit a lamp, covereth it up with a vessel, or, beneath a couch, putteth it; but, upon a lamp-stand, putteth it, that, they who come in, may see the light. For there is no secret, which shall not be made, manifest; neither a hidden thing, which shall in anywise not be made known, or not come, where it can be seen. Be taking heed therefore how ye hear; for, whosoever shall have, it shall be given unto him; and, whosoever shall not have, even what he seemeth to have, shall be taken from him.


And there cometh unto him, a leper, beseeching him and kneeling, - saying unto him - If thou be willing, thou canst cleanse me; and, moved with compassion, he stretched forth the hand, and touched him, and saith unto him - I am willing, Be cleansed! and, straightway, the leprosy departed from him, and he was cleansed; read more.
and, strictly charging him, straightway, he urged him forth; and saith unto him - Mind! unto no one, say aught, - but withdraw, thyself, show unto the priest, and offer for thy cleansing what things Moses enjoined, for a witness unto them. But, he, going forth, began to be proclaiming many things, and blazing abroad the story, so that, no longer, was it possible for him, openly, into a city, to enter, - but, outside, in desert places, was he, and they were coming unto him from every quarter.

And it came to pass, while he was in one of the cities, that lo! there was a man full of leprosy; and, seeing Jesus, he fell on his face, and entreated him, saying - Lord! if thou be willing, thou canst cleanse me. And, stretching forth the hand, he touched him, saying - I am willing: Be cleansed! And, straightway, the leprosy departed from him. And, he, charged him to tell, no one, - but, departing, Show thyself to the priest, and offer for thy cleansing, according as Moses enjoined, for a witness unto them. read more.
But the report concerning him the more went abroad, and many multitudes were coming together, to hear, and be getting cured from their infirmities; howbeit, he, was retiring in the deserts, and engaging in prayer.

And 1o! a leper, coming near, began to bow down to him saying, - Lord! if thou be willing, thou canst cleanse me. And, stretching forth the hand, he touched him, saying, - I am willing, be cleansed! And, straightway, cleansed was his leprosy. And Jesus saith unto him, Mind! tell, no one, - but withdraw, thyself, shew to the priest, and offer the gift which Moses directed, for a witness unto them.


And it came to pass, when Jesus ended these words, he removed from Galilee and came into the bounds of Judaea beyond the Jordan. And there followed him large multitudes, and he cured them there.

And, from thence, arising, he cometh into the bounds of Judaea and beyond the Jordan, - and there come together again, multitudes unto him, and, as he had been wont, again, was he teaching them.

And he was teaching in one of the synagogues, on the Sabbath. And lo! a woman, having a spirit of weakness eighteen years, - and was bowed together, and unable to lift herself up, at all. And, seeing her, Jesus called her and said to her - Woman! thou art loosed from thy weakness, - read more.
and laid on her his hands; and, instantly, she was made straight again, and began glorifying God. But the synagogue-ruler, answering, being greatly displeased that, on the Sabbath, Jesus had healed, began saying unto the multitude - Six days, there are, in which men ought to get their work done; On them, therefore, come and be healed, and, not on the day of rest. The Lord answered him, and said - Hypocrites! Doth not, each one of you, on the Sabbath, loose his ox or ass from the manger, and, leading it away, give it drink? But, this woman, being a daughter of Abraham, whom Satan had bound, lo! eighteen years, was there not a needs-be that she should be loosed from this bond, on the day of rest? And, as he was saying, these, things, all who had been setting themselves against him were being put to shame; and, all the multitude, were rejoicing over all the glorious things which were being brought to pass by him. He went on to say, therefore - Whereunto, is the kingdom of God, like? And, whereunto, shall I liken it? It is, like, unto a grain of mustard seed, which a man took and cast into his own garden; and it grew, and became a tree, and, the birds of heaven, lodged amongst its branches. And, again, he said - Whereunto, shall I liken the kingdom of God? It is, like leaven, which a woman took and hid in three measures of flour, until, the whole, was leavened. And he was journeying on, city by city and village by village, and making, progress, unto Jerusalem. And one said unto him - Lord! are they, few, who are being saved? And, he, said unto them - Be striving to enter through the narrow door; for, many, I say unto you, will seek to enter, and will not be able, - when once the householder shall rouse himself, and lock the door, and ye begin to stand, outside, and to knock at the door, saying - Lord! open to us; and he shall answer and say unto you - I know you not, whence ye are. Then, will ye begin to say - We did eat and drink in thy presence, and, in our broadways, thou didst, teach; And he will speak, saying unto you - I know not whence ye are; Depart from me, all workers of unrighteous - There, will be weeping and gnashing of teeth, as soon as ye see Abraham and Isaac and Jacob and all the prophets, in the kingdom of God, and, yourselves, being thrust forth outside. And they shall have come from east and west, and from north and south, and be made recline in the kingdom of God. And lo! there are, last, who shall be, first, and there are, first, who shall be, last; In that very hour, came near certain Pharisees, saying unto him, Go forth, and be journeying hence, because, Herod, desireth to slay thee. And he said unto them - Go and tell this fox, Lo! I am casting out demons, and, cures, am I finishing, to-day, and to-morrow, - and, on the third, I am to be made perfect. Nevertheless, I must needs, to-day, and tomorrow, and the following, be journeying on, because it is impossible that a prophet perish, outside Jerusalem. Jerusalem! Jerusalem! she that slayeth the prophets, and stoneth them that are sent unto her! How often, have I desired to gather together thy children, like as a hen, her own brood, under her wings, - and ye did not desire! Lo! your house is left to you. AndI say unto you - In nowise shall ye see me, until ye say, - Blessed, is he that cometh in the name of the Lord!


In that season, went Jesus, on, the sabbath, through the cornfields, - and, his disciples, hungered, and began to pluck ears of corn, and to eat. But, the Pharisees, observing it, said unto him, Lo! thy disciples, are doing what is not allowed to do, on sabbath. And he said unto them, have ye never read what, David, did, when he hungered, and they who were with him? how read more.
he entered into the house of God and, the presence-bread, did eat, which it was not, allowable, for him to eat, nor for them who were with him, - save for the priests, alone? Or have ye not read, in the law, that, on the sabbaths, the priests, in the temple, the sabbath, profane, and are, blameless? But I say unto you, - Something greater than the Temple, is here! If, however, ye had known what this meaneth - Mercy, I desire, and not, sacrifice, ye would not have condemned the blameless; For, the Son of Man, is, Lord of the Sabbath.

And it came to pass, that he, on the Sabbath, was passing through the cornfields, and his disciples began to be going forward, plucking the ears of corn. And, the Pharisees, were saying, - See! why are they doing, on the Sabbath, what is not allowed? And he saith unto them - Have ye never read what David did, when he had need and hungered, - he, and they who were with him: read more.
howhe entered into the house of God, while Abiathar was High-priest, and, the presence-bread, did eat, - which it is not allowed to eat, save unto the priests, - and gave, unto them also who were with him? And he was saying unto them - The Sabbath, for man, was made, and not, man, for, the Sabbath: So that the Son of Man is, Lord, even of the Sabbath.

And it came to pass, on a Sabbath, that he was passing along through cornfields, and his disciples were plucking and eating the ears of corn, rubbing them with their hands. But, certain of the Pharisees, said - Why are ye doing what is not allowed on the Sabbath? And, making answer unto them, Jesus said - Have ye never read, even this, what David did when he hungered, he, and they who were with him - read more.
How he entered into the house of God, and, the presence-bread, receiving, did eat, and gave to them who were with him, which it is not allowable to eat, save alone, to the priests? And he was saying to them - The Son of Man is, Lord of the Sabbath.


And, in his teaching, he was saying - Beware of the Scribes, who desire, in robes, to be walking about, and salutations in the markets, And first seats in the synagogues, and first couches in the chief meals, - Who devour widows' houses, and, for a pretence, are long in prayer: these, shall receive a more surpassing judgment.

And, all the people hearing, he said unto the disciples: Be taking heed of the Scribes - Who desire to walk about in long robes, and are fond of salutations in the markets, and first seats in the synagogues, and first couches in the chief meals, - Who devour the houses of widows, and, for a show, are a long time at prayer. These, shall receive, a heavier sentence.


And he entered again into a synagogue, and there-was there, a man having, his hand, withered; and they were narrowly watching him, whether, on the Sabbath, he would cure him, that they might accuse him. And he saith unto the man who hath his hand withered, Arise into the midst! read more.
and saith unto them - Is it allowed, on the Sabbath, to do good, or to do evil? To, save, life, or, to slay? but they remained silent. And, looking round upon them with anger, being at the same time grieved on account of the hardening of their heart, he saith unto the man - Stretch forth thy hand! and he stretched it forth, and his hand, was restored. And, the Pharisees, going out straightway with the Herodians, were giving counsel against him, that they should, destroy, him.

And it came to pass, on another Sabbath, that he entered into the synagogue, and was teaching, and there was a man there, and, his right hand, was withered. Now the Scribes and the Pharisees were narrowly watching him, whether, on the Sabbath, he healeth, - that they might find whereof to accuse him. But, he, knew their reasonings, and said to the man who had the, withered, hand - Arise, and stand forward in the midst! And, arising, he stood forward. read more.
And Jesus said unto them - I ask you, whether it is allowed, on the Sabbath, to do good or to do harm, - life, to save, or, to destroy. And, looking round upon them all, he said unto him - Stretch forth thy hand! and, he, did so, and his hand was restored. But, they, were filled with folly, and began conversing one with another, as to, what they might do with Jesus.

And, passing on from thence, he came into their synagogue; and lo! a man having, a withered hand, and they questioned him, saying, Is it allowable, on the sabbath, to heal? that they might accuse him. And said unto them, What man, from among yourselves, shall there be, - Who shall have one sheep, and, if this should fall, on the sabbath, into a pit, will not lay hold of it, and raise it? read more.
How much better, then, a man, than, a sheep? So that it is allowable, on the sabbath, nobly, to act. Then saith he unto the man, Stretch forth thy hand! And he stretched it forth, - and it was restored, whole, as the other. And the Pharisees, going forth, took, counsel, against him, to the end that, him, they might destroy.


And, entering again into Capernaum, after some days, it was heard say - He is in a house; and many were gathered together, so that no longer was there room even in the approaches to the door, - and he began speaking unto them the word; and they come, bearing unto him a paralytic, upborne by four, - read more.
and, not being able to get near him by reason of the multitude, they uncovered the roof where he was, and, having broken it up, they began letting down the couch whereon the paralytic was lying; and, Jesus, seeing their faith, saith unto the paralytic - Child! forgiven are thy sins! Now there were certain of the Scribes there, sitting and deliberating in their hearts, - Why doth, this, man thus talk? he is speaking profanely! Who can forgive sins, save one, God? And Jesus, straightway, taking note in his spirit, that thusthey are deliberating within themselves, saith unto them- Why, these things, are ye deliberating in your hearts? Which is easier - to say unto the paralytic, Forgiven are thy sins, or to say, Rise, and take up thy couch, and be walking? But, that ye may know that the Son of Man hath authority to be forgiving sins upon the earth, he saith to the paralytic: To thee, I say, Rise, take up thy couch, and be going thy way unto thy house. And he arose, and, straightway taking up the couch, went forth before all, - so that all were beside themselves and were glorifying God, saying- Thus, we never saw it!

And it came to pass, on one of the days, that, he, was teaching, and there were sitting Pharisees and Teachers of the law, who had come out of every village of Galilee and Judaea and Jerusalem; and, the power of the Lord, was there, that he might heal. And lo! men bearing, upon a couch, one who was paralyzed, and they were seeking to bring him in, and lay him before him. And, not finding by what means they might bring him in, because of the multitude, going up on the house-top, through the tiling, let they him down, with the little-couch, into the midst before Jesus. read more.
And, beholding their faith, he said - O man! thy sins are forgiven thee. And the Scribes and the Pharisees began to reason, saying - Who is this that speaketh profanities? Who can forgive, sins, save, God alone? And Jesus, taking note of their reasonings, answering, said unto them - Why are ye reasoning in your hearts? Which is easier, To say - Thy sins are forgiven thee; or to say - Arise and be walking? But, that ye may know that, the Son of Man, hath, authority, upon the earth to forgive sins - he said to the paralyzed man - To thee, I say, Arise, and, taking up thy couch, be going thy way unto thy house. And, instantly arising before them, he took up that whereon he had been lying, and departed unto his house, glorifying God. And, astonishment, seized one and all, and they began glorifying God, and were filled with fear, saying - We have seen unaccountable things, to-day!

And lo! they were bringing unto him a paralytic, on a couch, laid prostrate; and Jesus, seeing, their faith, said to the paralytic, - Take courage! child, forgiven are thy sins. And lo! certain of the scribes, said within themselves, - This man, speaketh profanely! And Jesus, knowing, their inward thoughts, said, - To what end are ye cherishing evil thoughts within your hearts? read more.
For which is easier - To say, Forgiven are thy sins, - or to say, Rise and be walking! But, that ye may know, that the Son of Man hath, authority, upon the earth, to be forgiving sins, then, saith he to the paralytic, - Rise! take up thy couch, and withdraw unto thy house. And, rising, he departed unto his house. Now the multitudes, seeing, were struck with fear, and glorified the God who had given authority, such as this, unto men.


And, leaving them behind, he went forth outside the city into Bethany, and spent the night there. And, early, returning into the city, he hungered; and, seeing one fig-tree by the way, he came up to it, and nothing, found he thereon, save leaves only, - and he saith unto it - No more, from thee, let fruit spring forth, unto times age-abiding, - and the fig-tree, instantly withered away. read more.
And the disciples, seeing it, marvelled, saying - How instantly, did the fig-tree wither away. And Jesus, answering, said unto them - Verily, I say unto you, If ye have faith, and do not doubt, not only, this of the fig-tree, shall ye do, - but, even if, unto this mountain, ye shall say, Be lifted up, and be cast into the sea, it shall be done. And, all things whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive.

And, on the morrow, when they came forth from Bethany, he hungered; and, seeing a fig-tree from afar, having leaves, he came -- if, therefore, he should find aught in it, and, coming up to it, nothing, found he, save, leaves; for it was not, the season, of figs. And, answering, he said unto it - No more, unto times age-abiding, let anyone of thee, eat fruit. And his disciples were listening.

And, passing by early, they saw the fig-tree, withered from its roots; and, put in mind, Peter saith unto him - Rabbi! see! the fig-tree which thou didst curse, is withered. And, answering, Jesus saith unto them - Have faith in God.


And, straightway, the Spirit urgeth him forth into the wilderness; and he was in the wilderness, forty days, tempted by Satan, and was with the wild beasts, - and, the messengers, were ministering unto him.

And Josiah begat Jechoniah, and his brethren, - upon the removal to Babylon.

And, Jesus, full of Holy Spirit, returned from the Jordan, and was led in the Spirit in the desert, forty days, - being tempted by the adversary; and he did eat nothing in those days, - and, when they were concluded, he hungered. And the adversary said to him - If thou art God's, Son, speak unto this stone; that it become bread. read more.
And Jesus made answer unto him - It is written: Not, on bread alone, shall, man, live. And, leading him up, he shewed him all the kingdoms of the inhabited earth, in a moment of time. And the adversary said to him - Unto thee, will I give this authority, all together, and their glory; because, unto me, hath it been delivered up, and, to whomsoever I please, I give it: Thou, therefore, if thou wilt worship before me, it shall all, be thine. And, answering, Jesus said to him - It is written: The Lord thy God, shalt thou worship, and, unto him alone, render divine service. And he led him into Jerusalem, and set him upon the pinnacle of the temple, - and said to him- If thou art God's, Son, cast thyself, from hence, down; for it is written - Unto his messengers, will he give command concerning thee, to keep vigilant watch over thee, - And, On hands, will they take thee up, lest once thou strike, against a stone, thy foot. And Jesus, answering, said to him - It is said: Thou shalt not put to the test the Lord thy God. And, having concluded every temptation, the adversary departed from him until a fitting season.



And, after these things, he went forth, and looked upon a tax-collector, by name Levi, - presiding over the tax-office; and he said to him - Be following me! And, forsaking all, he arose, and was following him.

And he went forth again by the sea, - and all the multitude was coming unto him, and he began teaching them. And, passing by, he saw Levi, the son of Alphaeus, sitting over the tax-office, - and saith unto him - Be following me! And, arising, he followed him.


And they came into Capernaum. And, happening to be, in the house, he was questioning them - What, in the way, were ye discussing? And they were silent; for, with one another, they had discussed in the way, who should be greatest. And, taking a seat, he addressed the twelve, and saith unto them - If anyone willeth to be, first, he shall be, least of all, and, minister of all. read more.
And, taking a child, he set it in the midst of them, - and, folding it in his arms, said unto them - Whosoever, unto, one ofthese children, shall give welcome, upon my name, unto me, giveth welcome; and, whosoever, unto me, giveth welcome, not, unto me, giveth welcome, but, unto him that sent me. John said unto him - Teacher! we saw someone, in thy name, casting out demons, - and we forbade him, because he was not following with us. But, Jesus, said - Do not forbid him! For, no one, is there, who shall do a work of power in my name, and have power, soon, to revile me; For, whosoever is not, against, us, is, for, us; For, whosoever shall give you to drink a cup of water, in name that, Christ's, ye are, Verily! I say unto you, in nowise, shall lose his reward. And, whosoever shall cause to stumble one of these little ones that believe, it is, seemly, for him, rather, if there is hung a large millstone about his neck, and he is cast into the sea. And, if thy hand shall cause thee to stumble, cut it off, - it is, seemly, for thee, maimed, to enter into life, rather than having, the two hands, to depart into the gehenna, into the fire that is not quenched; And, if thy foot be causing thee to stumble, cut it off, - it is, seemly, for thee, to enter into life, lame, rather than having, the two feet, to be cast into the gehenna; And, if thine eye be causing thee to stumble, thrust it out, - it is, seemly, for thee, one-eye, to enter into the kingdom of God, rather than having, two eyes, to be cast into gehenna, Where, their worm, dieth not, and, the fire, is not quenched, For, everyone, with fire, shall be salted. Salt is, good: but, if, salt, become, saltless, wherewith will ye, prepare, it? Have, within yourselves, salt, and be at peace, one with another.

But there entered a reasoning among them, as to who of them should be greatest. And, Jesus, perceiving the reasoning of their heart, taking a child, placed it near himself, - and said unto them - Whosoever shall give welcome unto this child, on my name, unto me, giveth welcome; and, whosoever, unto me, giveth welcome, giveth welcome unto him that sent me forth. For, he who is least among you all, the same, is, great. read more.
But John, answering, said - Master! we saw some one, in thy name, casting out demons, - and we forbade him, because he followeth not with us. And Jesus said unto him - Do not forbid; for, whosoever is not against you, is, for you.


And Jesus entered into the temple, and cast out all who were selling and buying in the temple, - and, the tables of the money-changers, he overthrew, and the seats of them who were selling doves;

And he entered into Jerusalem, into the temple, and, looking round on all things, late already being the hour, he went out into Bethany, with the twelve.

And, entering into the temple, he began to be casting out them who were selling;


And, calling together the twelve, he gave them power and authority over all the demons, and to be curing, diseases; and sent them forth, to be proclaiming the kingdom of God, and to be healing; and said unto them - Nothing, take ye for the journey, - neither staff, nor satchel, nor bread, nor silver, nor to have, two tunics. read more.
And, into whatsoever house ye enter, there, abide, and, thence, be going forth. And, as many soever as shall not welcome you, in going forth from that city, the dust of your feet, shake ye off, for a witness against them. And they went forth, and were passing through, along the villages, - delivering the glad-message, and effecting cures in every direction.

And he marvelled because of their unbelief. And he was going round the villages in a circuit, teaching. And he calleth near the twelve, and began to be sending them forth two and two, - and was giving them authority over the impure spirits: and charged them that they should take, nothing, for a journey, save a staff only, - no bread, no satchel, no copper, for the belt; read more.
but having bound on light sandals, and not to put on, two tunics; and he was saying unto them - Wheresoever ye shall enter into a house, there, abide, until ye go forth from thence; And, whatsoever place shall not welcome you nor hearken unto you, when ye are going forth from thence, shake off the dust that is under you feet, for a witness against them. And they went forth and made proclamation, in order that men should repent; and, many demons, were they casting out, - and were anointing with oil, many sick, and were curing them.


Then, answered him, certain of the Scribes and Pharisees, saying, Teacher! we desire of thee, a sign, to behold. But, he, answering, said unto them, A wicked and adulterous generation, a sign, doth seek, and, a sign, will not be, given, it, save the sign of Jonah the prophet. For, just as was Jonah in the belly of the sea-monster three days and three nights, so, will be the Son of Man, in the heart of the earth, three days and three nights. read more.
Men of Nineveh, will rise up in the judgment, with this generation, and will condemn it, - because they repented into the proclamation of Jonah; and lo! something greater than Jonah, here. The queen of the south, will arise in the judgment with this generation and will condemn it - because she came out of the ends of the earth, to hear the wisdom of Solomon; and lo! something greater than Solomon, here. But, when the impure spirit goeth out of the man, it passeth through waterless places, seeking rest, - and findeth it not. Then, it saith, Into my house, will I return whence I came out, - and, coming, findeth it empty and swept and adorned. Then, it goeth, and taketh along with itself, seven diverse spirits, more wicked than itself, - and, entering, abideth there; and, the last state of that man, becometh, worse than the first. So, shall it be, with this, wicked, generation.

and, others, putting him to the test, a sign out of heaven, were seeking from him. But, he, knowing their thoughts, said unto them - Every kingdom, against itself divided, is laid waste, and, a house, against a house, divided , falleth; And, if, even Satan, against himself hath become divided, how shall his kingdom stand? because ye are saying that, in Beelzebul, am I casting out the demons. read more.
But, if, I, in Beelzebul, am casting out the demons, In whom are, your sons, casting them out? Wherefore, they, shall be, your judges. But, if, with the finger of God, I, am casting out the demons, then doubtless unawares hath come upon you, the kingdom of God. Whensoever, the mighty one, armed, may be guarding his own dwelling, in peace, are his goods; But, whensoever, a mightier than he, shall come upon and vanquish him, his panoply, he taketh away, wherein he was trusting, and, his spoils, he distributeth. He that is not with me, is, against me; and, he that gathereth not with me, scattereth. Whensoever, the impure spirit, goeth out from the man, it passeth through waterless places, seeking rest; and, not finding it, then,it saith, I will return unto my house, whence I came out; - and, coming, findeth it, empty,swept, and adorned. Then, goeth it, and taketh along with itself, other spirits, more wicked than itself - seven, and, entering in, fixeth its dwelling there; and, the last state of that man, becometh, worse than the first. Now it came to pass, while he was saying these things, that a certain woman out of the multitude, lifting up her voice, said unto him - Happy the womb that bare thee! And the breasts which thou didst suck! But, he, said - Yea rather! - Happy they who hear the word of God, and observe it! And, as the multitudes were thronging together, he began to be saying - This generation, is, a wicked generation: A sign, it is seeking, and, a sign, shall not be given it, save the sign of Jonah. For, according as, Jonah, became, unto the Ninevites, a sign, so, shall be, the Son of Man also, unto this generation. The queen of the south, will rise up, in the judgment, with the men of this generation, and will condemn them; because she came out of the ends of the earth to hear the wisdom of Solomon, - and lo! something more than Solomon, here. Men of Nineveh, will rise up, in the judgment, with this generation, and will condemn it; because they repented into the proclamation of Jonah, - and lo! something more than Jonah, here. No one, having lighted, a lamp, into a covered place, a putteth it, nor, under the measure; but upon the lampstand, that they who enter may see, the light. The lamp of thy body, is thine eye: Whensoever, thine eye, may be, single, even the whole of thy body, is, lighted up; but, whensoever it may be, useless, even thy body, is darkened. Be looking to it, therefore, lest, the light that is in thee, be, darkness. If, therefore, thy whole body, is lighted up, not having any part darkened, the whole, shall be lighted up, as whensoever, the lamp, with its radiance, may be giving thee light.


Then came unto him the mother of the sons of Zebedee, with her sons, bowing down, and asking something from him. And, he, said to her - What desirest thou? She saith unto him - Bid, that these my two sons may sit, one on thy right hand, and one on thy left, in thy kingdom. But Jesus, answering, said - Ye know not what ye are asking: Are ye able to drink the cup, which, I, am about to drink; They say unto him - We are able. read more.
He saith unto them - My cup, indeed, ye shall drink; but, to sit on my right hand and on my left, is not mine to give, - except unto those for whom it hath been prepared by my Father. And the ten, hearing, were sorely displeased, concerning the two brethren. But, Jesus, calling them near, said - Ye know that, the rulers of the nations, lord it over them, and, the great ones, wield authority over them: Not so, is it, among you, - but, whosoever shall desire, among you, to become, great, shall be, your minister; And, whosoever shall desire, among you, to be first, shall be, your servant: - Just as, the Son of Man, came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give his life a ransom instead of many.

And there come near unto him, James and John, the twosons of Zebedee, - saying unto him - Teacher! we desire, that, whatsoever we shall ask thee, thou wilt do for us. But, he, said unto them - What desire ye, I should do for you? And, they, said unto him - Grant us, that, one on thy right hand, and one on thy left, we may sit, in thy glory. read more.
But, Jesus, said unto them - Ye know not what ye are asking: Are ye able to drink the cup that, I, am to drink? or to be immersed, with the immersion wherewith, I, am to be immersed? And, they, said unto him - We are able. And, Jesus, said unto them - The cup which, I, am to drink, ye shall drink, and, with the immersion wherewith, I, am to be immersed, shall ye be immersed; But, to sit on my right hand and on my left, is not mine to give, except unto them for whom it hath been prepared. And the ten, hearing, began to be sorely displeased, concerning James and John. And Jesus, calling them near, saith unto them - Ye know that, they who think to rule the nations, lord it over them, and, their great ones, wield authority over them; But, not so, it is, among you. But, whosoever desireth to become, great, among you, shall be, your minister, And, whosoever desireth, among you, to be, first, shall be, servant of all; For, even the Son of Man, came not to be ministered unto, but minister, - and to give his life, a ransom instead of many.


And, certain saying, of the temple - With beautiful stones and offerings, hath it been adorned! he said - As to these things, which ye are looking upon, There will come days, in which there will not be left here, stone upon stone, which will not be taken down. And they questioned him, saying - Teacher! when, therefore, will these things be? And, what the sign, when these things shall be about to come to pass? read more.
And, he, said - Be taking heed ye be not deceived; for, many, will come upon my name, saying - I, am he, - and - The season, hath drawn near! Do not go after them. But, whensoever ye shall hear of wars and revolutions, be not terrified, - for these things, must needs, come to pass first, but, not immediately, is the end. Then, said he unto them - There will rise up, nation against nation, and kingdom against kingdom; As well great earthquakes, as also, in places, pestilences and famines, will there be, as well objects of terror, as also, from heaven, great signs, will there be. And before, all these things, they will thrust upon you their hands, and persecute you, delivering you up into the synagogues and prisons, - when ye have been led away before kings and governors, for the sake of my name; But it shall turn out to you for a witness. Settle, then, in your hearts, not to be studying beforehand, how to make defense; For, I, will give you a mouth and wisdom, which one-and-all who are setting themselves against, you shall be unable to withstand or gainsay. But ye will be delivered up, even by parents, and brethren, and kinsfolk, and friends, and they will put to death some from among you; And ye will be hated by all, because of my name: And, a hair of your head, in nowise shall perish, - By your endurance, shall ye gain your lives for a possession. But whensoever ye shall see Jerusalem, encompassed by armies, then, know, that her desolation hath drawn near. Then they who are in Judaea, let them flee into the mountains, and they who are in her midst, let them go forth, - and they who are in the fields, let them not enter into her; For, days of avenging, are, these, for all the things written to be fulfilled. Alas! for the women with child, and for them who are giving suck, in those days; for there will be great distress upon the land, and anger against this people. And they will fall by the edge of the sword, and be carried away captive into all the nations, and, Jerusalem, shall be trodden down by the nations, until the seasons of the nations shall be fulfilled and shall be. And there will he signs in sun, and moon, and stars, and, on the earth, anguish of nations in embarrassment - sea and surge resounding, - Men fainting, from fear and expectation of the things overtaking the inhabited earth. For, the powers of the heavens, will be shaken. And, then, will they see the Son of Man - coming in a cloud, with great power and glory. And, when these things are beginning to come to pass, unbend and lift up your heads, because that, your redemption, is drawing near. And he spake a parable unto them: See the fig-tree, and all the trees, - Whensoever they have already budded, seeing it, of yourselves, ye observe that, already near, is, the summer: Thus, ye also, whensoever ye shall see, these, things coming to pass, observe ye, that, near, is the kingdom of God! Verily, I say unto you - In nowise shall this generation pass away, until, all things, shall happen: Heaven and earth, will pass away, but, my word, in nowise will pass away. But be taking heed unto yourselves, lest once your hearts be made heavy - with debauch and drunkenness and anxieties about livelihood, and that day come upon you suddenly, as a snare, - For it will come in by surprise, upon all them that are dwelling on the face of all the earth. But be watching in every season, making supplication, that ye may gain full vigour, to escape all these things that are about to be coming to pass, and to stand before the Son of Man.



And lo! two from among them, on the selfsame day, were journeying unto a village, distant sixty furlongs from Jerusalem, the name of which, was Emmaus; and, they, were conversing one with another, about all these things which had occurred. And it came to pass, as they were conversing and reasoning together, that, Jesus himself, drawing near, was journeying with them; read more.
but, their eyes, were held, so as not to know him. And he said unto them - What are these things which ye are debating one with another, as ye walk along? And they came to a stand, sad in countenance. But one, by name Cleopas, answering, said unto him - Art, thou, lodging, alone, in Jerusalem, and knowest not the things which have come to pass therein in these days? And he said unto them - What things? And, they, said unto him - The things concerning Jesus the Nazarene, who became a prophet, mighty in work and word, before God and all the people: In what way also our High-priests and Rulers delivered him up unto a sentence of death, and crucified him. We, however, were hoping that, he, was the one destined to redeem Israel! But indeed, even with all these things, this brings on, the third, day, since these things happened: - Nay! certain women also, from amongst us, have made us beside ourselves, in that they went early unto the tomb; and, not finding his body, came, saying - that, a vision of messengers, they had seen, who were affirming him to be alive. And certain of them who were with us departed unto the tomb, - and found so, according as, the women, had said; but, him, they saw not. And, he, said unto them - O thoughtless ones! and slow in heart to rest your faith upon all things which the prophets have spoken: - Was it not needful for the Christ, these very things, to suffer, and to enter into his glory? And, beginning from Moses, and from all the prophets, he thoroughly explained to them, in all the Scriptures, the things concerning himself. And they drew near unto the village, whither they were journeying; and, he, made for journeying, further. And they constrained him, saying - Abide with us; because it is, towards evening, and the day hath already declined. And he went in to abide with them. And it came to pass, when he reclined with them, taking the loaf, he blessed, and, breaking it, went on to give unto them. And, their, eyes were opened, and they knew him; and, he, vanished from them. And they said one to another - Was not, our heart, burning, as he was speaking to us in the way, as he was opening to us the Scriptures? And, arising in that very hour, they returned unto Jerusalem, - and found, gathered together, the eleven, and them who were with them, saying - In truth, the Lord hath arisen, and hath appeared unto Simon! And, they, went on to relate the things, that had passed on the journey, and how he was made known unto them in the breaking of the loaf.


And Jesus entered into the temple, and cast out all who were selling and buying in the temple, - and, the tables of the money-changers, he overthrew, and the seats of them who were selling doves; and saith unto them - It is written, My house, a house of prayer, shall be called; but, ye, are making it, A den of robbers!

And, entering into the temple, he began to be casting out them who were selling; saying unto them - It is written, And, my house, shall be, a house of prayer; but, ye, have made, it, a den of robbers.


Now, the Pharisees, hearing that he had silenced the Sadducees, were brought together with one accord; and one from among them, a lawyer, proposed a question, putting him to the test: Teacher! which commandment, is greatest in the law? read more.
And, he, said unto him - Thou shalt love the Lord thy God - with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind: This, is the great and first commandment. The second, like it, is, this: Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. In these two commandments, all the law, is contained, and the prophets.

And one of the Scribes, coming near, hearing them discussing, seeing that, well, he had answered them, began to question him - Which is the chief commandment of all? Jesus answered - The chief is: Hear! O Israel, - The Lord our God, is, one Lord; Therefore shalt thou love the Lord thy God, with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, - and with all thy mind; and with all thy strength. read more.
The second, is, this - Thou shalt love, thy neighbour, as thyself. Greater than these, other commandment, is there none. The Scribe said unto him - Well, Teacher! in truth, hast thou said - He is, One, and there is none other, than he; And, to love him, with all the heart, and with all the understanding, - and with all the might; and to love one's neighbour as one's self, is, abundantly more, than all the whole burnt offerings and sacrifices. And, Jesus, seeing him, that, with intelligence he answered, said unto him - Not far, art thoufrom the kingdom of God! And, no one, any longer, was daring to, question, him.


Then the soldiers of the governor, taking Jesus aside into the judgment-hall, gathered unto him all the band; and, unclothing him, a scarlet scarf, put they about him, - and, plaiting a crown out of thorns, they put it upon his head, and a reed in his right hand, - and, kneeling before him, began to mock him, saying - Joy to thee, King of the Jews! read more.
And, spitting upon him, they took the reed, and began striking upon his head. And, when they had mocked him, they put off him the scarf, and put on him his garments, and led him away unto the crucifying.

And, the soldiers, led him away, inside the court, which is a judgment-hall, - and called together the whole band; and they array him in purple, and set upon him, when they have plaited it; a crown of thorns, - and began to be saluting him - Joy to thee! King of the Jews! read more.
and were striking him on the head with a reed, and were spitting at him, - and, bowing their knees, were doing him homage. And, when they had mocked him, they put off him, the purple, and put on him, his own garments. And they lead him forth, that they may crucify him.


Now, when Jesus returned, the multitude welcomed him back, for they were all expecting him.

And, Jesus crossing over in the boat again unto the other side, there was gathered a large multitude unto him, and he was by the lake.

And, entering into a boat, he crossed over, and came into his own city.


And, going forth from thence, Jesus retired into the parts of Tyre and Zidon. And lo! a Canaanite woman, from those bounds, coming forth, began crying out, saying, Have mercy on me, Lord, Son of David! My daughter, is miserably demonized. But, he, answered her no a word. And his disciples, coming forward began requesting him, saying - Dismiss her, because she is crying out after us. read more.
But, he, answering, said, I was not sent forth, save unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel. And, she, coming, began bowing down to him, saying, Lord! help me. But, he, answering, said, It is, not seemly, to take the loaf of, the children, and cast, to the little dogs. And, she, said, True, Lord! for, even the little dogs, eat of the crumbs which are falling from the table of, their masters. Then, answering, Jesus said to her - O woman! great, is, thy faith! Be it, done, for thee, as thou desirest. And her daughter was healed, from that hour.

And, from thence arising, he departed into the bounds of Tyre and Zidon. And, entering into a house, he was wishing, no one, to know it, and yet could not escape notice, - but, straightway, a woman hearing about him, whose daughter had an impure spirit, she came and fell down at his feet. Now, the woman, was a Grecian, a Syrophoenician by race, - and she was requesting him that, the demon, he would cast forth out of her daughter. read more.
And he was saying to her - Suffer, the children, first, to be fed; for it is not seemly to take the bread of the children, and, unto the little dogs, to cast it; but she answered and saith to him - Yea, Lord! and yet, the little dogs under the table, do eat of the crumbs of the children; and he said to her - Because of this word, go thy way, the demon hath gone forth out of thy daughter; and, departing unto her house, she found the child laid prostrate on the couch, and the demon gone forth.


Another parable, put he before them, saying - The kingdom of the heavens hath become like a man sowing good seed in his field; and, while men were sleeping, his enemy came, and sowed over darnel, in among the wheat, - and away he went. And, when the blade shot up, and brought forth, fruit, then, appeared, the darnel also. read more.
And the servants of the householder, coming near, said to him, - Sir! was it not, good seed, thou didst sow in thy field? Whence then hath it, darnel? And he said unto them - An enemy, hath, done this. And they say, unto him - Wilt thou, then, that we go and collect it? And, he, saith - Nay! lest, at any time, while collecting the darnel, ye uproot, along with it, the wheat: Suffer both to grow together until the harvest, and at, harvest time, I will say unto the reapers, - Collect ye first, the darnel, and bind it into bundles, with a view to the burning it up; but, the wheat, be gathering it into my barn. Another parable, put he before them, saying - The kingdom of the heavens is like unto, a grain of mustard seed, which a man took and sowed in his field; which, indeed, is, less, than all seeds, but, when grown, is greater than garden-plants, and becometh a tree, - so that the birds of heaven come, and lodge among its branches. Another parable, spake he unto them: - The kingdom of the heavens is like, unto leaven, which a woman took and hid in three measures of flour until, the whole, was leavened. All these things, spake Jesus in parables, unto the multitudes, and, without a parable, was he speaking, nothing, unto them: that it might be fulfilled, which was spoken through the prophet, saying - I will open, in parables, my mouth, I will bring up things hidden from the foundation! Then, dismissing the multitudes, he went into the house, and his disciples came near to him, saying - Make quite plain to us the parable of the darnel of the field. And, he, answering, said - He that soweth the good seed, is the Son of Man; And, the field, is the world, and, the good seed, these are the sons of the kingdom, - and, the darnel seeds, are the sons of the evil one; And, the enemy that sowed them, is the adversary, and, the harvest, is, the conclusion of an age, and, the reapers, are, messengers. Just, therefore, as collected is the darnel, and, with fire is burned, so, will it be in the conclusion of the age: - The Son of Man will send forth his messengers, and they will collect, out of his kingdom, all the causes of stumbling, and the doers of lawlessness, and will cast them into the furnace of fire: there, will be wailing and gnashing of teeth. Then, the righteous, will shine forth as the sun, in the kingdom of their Father. He that hath ears, let him hear! The kingdom of the heavens is like unto, a treasure hid in the field, which a man, finding, hid, - and, by reason of his joy, withdraweth and selleth whatsoever he hath, and buyeth that field. Again, the kingdom of the heavens is, like, unto, a merchant, seeking beautiful pearls, - and, finding one very precious pearl, departing, he at once sold all things, whatsoever he had, and bought it. Again, the kingdom of the heavens is like unto, a large drag-net, cast into the sea and gathering of every kind, - which, when it was filled, they dragged up on the beach, and, sitting down, collected the good into vessels, but, the worthless, forth they cast. So, will it be in the conclusion of the age: The messengers will come forth, and separate the wicked from among the righteous; Have ye understood all these things? They say unto him, Yea! And, he, said unto them - Wherefore, every scribe, discipled unto the kingdom of the heavens, is like unto a householder, who putteth forth out of his treasure, things new and old. And it came to pass, when Jesus had finished these parables, he removed from thence;

And he was saying - Thus, is the kingdom of God: As a man may cast seed upon the earth, and be sleeping and rising, night and day, - and the seed be sprouting, and lengthening itself, - how, he, knoweth not: of itself, the earth beareth fruit, - first, a blade, afterwards, an ear, after that, full corn in the ear; read more.
but, as soon as the fruit yieldeth itself up, straightway, he sendeth forth the sickle, because standing by is the harvest. - And he was saying - How shall we liken the kingdom of God, or, in what parable, shall we put it? As a grain of mustard seed, - which, whensoever it may be sown upon the earth, is less than all the seeds that are upon the earth; and, as soon as it is sown, springeth up, and becometh greater than all garden plants, and produceth large branches, so that, under the shade thereof, the birds of heaven can find shelter. And, with many such parables as these, was he speaking unto them the word, - according as they were able to hear; but, without a parable, was he not speaking unto them, - privately, however, unto his own disciples, was he explaining all things.


And, passing on from thence, Jesus came near the sea of Galilee, and, going up into the mountain, was sitting there. And there came unto him large multitudes, having with themselves the lame, the maimed, the blind, the dumb, and many others, - and they cast them near his feet, and he cured them; so that the multitude marvelled, seeing the dumb speaking, the lame walking, and the blind seeing, - and they glorified the God of Israel.

And, again coming forth out of the bounds of Tyre, he came unto the sea of Galilee, through the midst of the bounds of Decapolis. And they bring to him one deaf and stammering, and beseech him that he would lay upon him his hand. And, taking him away from the multitude apart, he thrust his fingers into his ears, and, spitting, touched his tongue; read more.
and, looking up into the heaven, sighed deeply, and saith unto him - Ephphatha! that is, Be opened! and his ears opened, and the string of his tongue was loosed, - and he was speaking correctly. And he charged them that they should be telling, no one, - but, as much as to them he gave charge, they, exceeding more abundantly, were making proclamation. And, superabundantly, were they being struck with astonishment, saying - Well, hath he, all things, done, - both, the deaf, he causeth to hear, and, the dumb, to speak.


But, he, said unto him - A certain man, was making a great supper, and invited many; and he sent out his servant, at the hour of the supper, to say unto the invited - Be coming! because, even now, is it, ready. And they all began, one after another to excuse themselves. The first, said unto him - A field, have I bought, and have need to go out and see it: I request thee, hold me excused. read more.
And, another, said - Five yoke of oxen, have I bought, and am going my way to prove them; I request thee, hold me excused. And, another, said - A wife, have I married, and, for this cause, I cannot come! And, going near, the servant reported unto his lord these things. Then, provoked to anger, the master of the house said unto his servant - Go out quickly, into the broadways and streets of the city, - and, the destitute, and tried, and blind, and lame, bring thou in here. And the servant said - Lord! what thou didst order, hath been done; and, yet, there is, room. And the lord said unto the servant - Go out among the highways and fences, and compel them to come in; that my house may be filled. For, I say unto you - Not one of those men who had been invited, shall taste of my supper.

And, answering, Jesus, again, spake in parables unto them, saying: - The kingdom of the heavens hath become like a man, a king, - who made a marriage-feast for his son; And sent his servants, to call the invited into the marriage-feast, - and they would not come. read more.
Again, sent he other servants, saying - Say to the invited, Lo! my dinner, have I prepared, mine oxen and my fatlings, are slain, - and, all things, are, ready: Come ye into the marriage-feast. And, they, slighting it, went off, one, indeed, into his own field, and, another, unto his merchandise, - And, the rest, securing his servants, ill-treated and slew them. And, the king, was provoked to anger, - and, sending his armies, destroyed those murderers, and, their city, set on fire. Then, saith he unto his servants - The marriage, indeed, is ready, - but, the invited, were not, worthy; Be going, therefore, into the crossways of the roads, and, as many as ye shall find, call ye into the marriage-feast. And those servants, going forth, into the roads, gathered together all whom they found, both bad and good, - and filled was the bride-chamber with guests. But the king, entering to view the guests, saw there a man, who had not put on a wedding-garment, - And saith unto him - Friend! how camest thou in here, not having a wedding-garment? And, he, was put to silence. Then, the king said unto the ministers, Binding him feet and hands, cast him forth into the darkness, outside: There, shall be wafting and gnashing of teeth. For, many, are called, but, few, chosen.


A wicked and adulterous generation, a sign, doth seek after, and, a sign, will not be given it, - save the sign of Jonah. And, leaving them behind, he departed. And the disciples coming, to the other side, had forgotten to take loaves. And, Jesus, said unto them - Mind! and beware, of the leaven of the Pharisees and Sadducees. read more.
And, they, began to deliberate among themselves, saying - Because, loaves, we took not. And, observing it, Jesus said - Why are ye deliberating among yourselves, ye little-of-faith! because, loaves, ye have not? Not yet, perceive ye, neither remember, - The five loaves of the five thousand, and how many baskets ye received? Nor the seven loaves of the four thousand, and how many hampers ye received? How is it ye perceive not, that, not concerning loaves, spake I unto you, - but beware of the leaven, of the Pharisees and Sadducees? Then, understood they that he did not bid them beware of theleaven of loavesbut of, the teaching, of the Pharisees and Sadducees.

And leaving them, again, embarking, he departed unto the other side. And they forgot to take loaves, and, save one loaf, they had nothing with them in the boat. And he began charging them, saying - Mind! beware of the leaven of the Pharisees, and of the leaven of Herod! read more.
And they began deliberating one with another, because they had no loaves. And, taking note, he saith unto them - Why do ye deliberate, because ye have no, loaves? Not yet perceive ye, neither understand, - keep ye your hearts, hardened? Eyes having, see ye not? and ears having, hear ye not? and remember ye not when, the five loaves, I brake unto the five thousand, how many baskets, full of broken pieces, ye took up? They say unto him - Twelve, - When the seven, unto the four thousand, how many hampers, full measure, of broken pieces, ye took up? And they say unto him - Seven. And he was saying unto them - Not yet, do ye understand?


And it came to pass, when the days for taking him up were on the point of being fulfilled, even he himself, set, his face, to be journeying unto Jerusalem; and he sent messengers before his face, - and, taking their journey, they entered into a village of Samaritans, so as to prepare for him. And they welcomed him not, because, his face, was for journeying unto Jerusalem. read more.
And the disciples James and John, seeing it, said - Lord! wilt thou, that we bid fire come down from heaven, and destroy them? But, turning, he rebuked them. And they journeyed into a different village. And, as they were journeying on the road, one said unto him - I will follow thee, whithersoever thou shalt depart. And Jesus said unto him - the foxes, have, dens, and, the birds of heaven, nests; but, the Son of Man, hath not where, his head, he may recline. And he said unto another - Be following me! But, he, said - Suffer me, first, to depart, and bury my father. And he said unto him - Leave, the dead, to bury their own dead; but, thou, departing, be declaring the kingdom of God. And, yet another, said - I will follow thee, Lord; But, first, suffer me to bid adieu to them that are in my house. But Jesus said unto him - No one, laying the hand on a plough and looking unto the things behind, is, fit, for the kingdom of God.

But the feast of the Jews was near, that of the pitching of tents. His brethren, therefore, said unto him - Remove hence, and withdraw into Judaea, that, thy disciples also, may view thy works which thou art doing. For, no one, anything in secret, doeth, and yet is seeking, himself, to be well-known. If, these things, thou art doing, manifest thyself unto the world. read more.
For, not even his brethren, were believing on him. Jesus, therefore, saith unto them - My season, not yet, is here; but, your season, at anytime, is ready: The world cannot hate you; but, me, it hateth, because, I, bear witness concerning it, that, the works thereof, are, wicked. Ye, go up unto the feast: I, not yet, am coming up unto this feast, because, my season, not yet, hath fully come. And, these things, having said unto them, he was still abiding in Galilee. But, when his brethren had gone up unto the feast, then, he also, went up, - not openly, but as it were in secret. The Jews, therefore, were seeking him in the feast, and were saying - Where is that one?


And there came unto him Pharisees, testing him, and saying, - Whether is it allowed a man to divorce his wife, for every cause? And, he, answering, said - Did ye never read - He who created at the beginning, Male and female, made them, - and said - For this cause, will a man leave his father and his mother, and be united to his wife, - and, the two, will become, one flesh; read more.
So that, the longer, are they, two, but, one flesh, What, therefore, God, hath yoked together, Let not, a man, put asunder. They say unto him - Why then did, Moses, command, to give a writing of repudiation and to divorce? He saith unto them - Moses, in view of your hardness of heart, permitted you to divorce your wives; From the beginning however, hath it not been done, thus. And I say unto you - Whosoever shall divorce his wife, saving for unfaithfulness, and shall marry another, committeth adultery. The disciples say unto him - If, so, is the cause of the husband with the wife, it is not expedient to marry. But, he, said unto them - Not all, find room for he word, save they to whom it hath been given; For there, are, eunuchs, who, from their mother's womb, were born so, and there, are, eunuchs, who were made eunuchs, by men, - and there, are, eunuchs, who have made, themselves, eunuchs, for the sake the kingdom of the heavens: He that is able to find room, let him find room.

And Pharisees coming near were questioning him - whether it is allowed a husband to divorce a wife, testing him. But, he, answering, said unto them - What unto you did, Moses, command? And, they, said - Moses permitted, to write, a roll of dismissal, and to divorce. read more.
But, Jesus, said unto them - In view of your hardness of heart, wrote he for you this commandment; But, from the beginning of creation, male and female, made he them; For this cause, shall a man leave behind his father and mother, and, the two, shall become, one flesh; so that, no longer, are they two, but, one flesh. What then, God, hath yoked together, let, a man, not put asunder. And, coming into the house again, the disciples, concerning this, were questioning him; and he saith unto them - Whosoever shall divorce his wife, and marry another, committeth adultery against her; And, if, she, divorcing her husband, marry another, she committeth adultery.


But, Jesus, taking note, retired from thence, - and many followed him, and he cured them all; and straitly charged them, lest they should make him, manifest: that it might be fulfilled, which was spoken through Isaiah the prophet, saying: - read more.
Lo! my servant, whom I have chosen, My beloved, in whom, my soul, delighteth, - I will put my Spirit upon him, and, justice, unto the nations, will he report: He will not strive, nor will he cry out, nor shall any hear, in the broadways, his voice: A bruised cane, will he not break, and, a smoking wick, will he not quench, - until he urge on, justice, to victory, And, in his name, shall nations hope.

And, Jesus, with his disciples, retired unto the sea; and, a great throng from Galilee, followed, also from Judaea, and from Jerusalem, and from Idumaea, and beyond the Jordan, and around Tyre and Zidon, a great throng, hearing whatsoever things he was doing, came unto him. And he spake unto his disciples that a little boat might attend him, because of the multitude, - that they might not be pressing upon him. read more.
For he cured many, so that they were besieging him, that they might touch him - as many as had plagues; and the impure spirits, as soon as they beheld him, were falling down to him, and crying aloud, while he was speaking, Thou, art the Son of God! and sternly was he rebuking them, lest they should make him manifest.


and, forsaking Nazareth, he came and fixed his dwelling in Capernaum, which was by the lake, - within the bounds of Zebulun and Naphtali: that it might be fulfilled, which was spoken through Isaiah the prophet, saying: Land of Zebulun, and land of Naphtali, the lake-way across the Jordan, - Galilee of the nations, read more.
The people that was sitting in darkness, a great light, beheld, - and, on them who were sitting in land and shade of death, Light rose on them.

And he came into Nazareth, where he had been brought up, and entered, according to his custom, on the sabbath day, into the synagogue, - and stood up to read. And there was handed to him a scroll of the prophet Isaiah; and unfolding the scroll, he found the place where it was written: The Spirit of the Lord, is upon me, because he hath anointed me - to tell glad tidings unto the destitute; He hath sent me forth, - To proclaim, to captives, a release, and, to the blind, a recovering of sight, - to send away the crushed, with a release; read more.
To proclaim the welcome year of the Lord. And, folding up the scroll, he handed it to the attendant, and sat down; and, the eyes of all, in the synagogue, were intently fixed upon him; and he began to be saying to them - This day, is fulfilled this scripture, in your ears. And, all, were bearing witness to him, and marvelling at the words of favour which were proceeding out of his mouth; and they were saying - Is not, this, the, son of Joseph? And he said unto them - By all means, ye will speak to me this similitude: Physician! heal, thyself, - Whatsoever things we have heard of coming to pass in Capernaum, do here also, in thine own country. And he said - Verily, I say unto you, No prophet, is, welcome, in his own country, And, of a truth, I say unto you - Many widows, were in the days of Elijah, in Israel, when the heaven was shut up three years and six months, when there came a great famine upon all the land; And, unto none of them, was Elijah sent, save unto Sarepta of Sidonia, unto a woman that was a widow. And, many lepers, were in Israel, in the time of Elisha the prophet, and, not one of them, was cleansed, save Naaman the Syrian. And all were filled with wrath, in the synagogue, as they heard these things. And, rising up, they thrust him forth outside the city, and led him as far as a brow of the hill on which their city was built, - so that they might throw him down headlong. But, he, passing through the midst of them, went his way. And he came down into Capernaum, a city of Galilee. And he was teaching them on the sabbath;


Now, John, hearing in the prison the works of the Christ, sending through his disciples, said unto him, Art, thou, the coming one? or, a different one, are we to expect? And, answering, Jesus said unto them - Go report unto John what ye do hear and see: - read more.
The, blind, recover sight, and, the lame, walk, lepers, are cleansed, and, the deaf, hear, - and, the dead, are raised, and, the destitute, are told the joyful tidings; And, happy, is he, whosoever shall not find cause of stumbling, in me. But, as these were going their way, Jesus began to say unto the multitudes, concerning John, - What went ye forth into the wilderness to gaze at? A reed, by a wind, shaken? But what went ye forth to see? A man, in soft clothing, arrayed? Lo! they who soft clothing do wear, are in the houses of kings. But why went ye forth? A prophet, to see? Yea, I say unto you, and much more than a prophet. This, is he, concerning whom it is written, - Lo! I, send my messenger before thy face, who shall make ready thy way before thee! Verily, I say unto you - There hath not arisen, among such as are born of women, a greater than John the Immerser, - yet, he that is less in the kingdom of the heavens, is, greater than he. But, from the days of John the Immerser, until even now, the kingdom of the heavens, is being invaded, and, invaders, are, seizing upon it. For, all the prophets and the law, until John, did prophesy; And, if ye are willing to accept it, he, is Elijah - the one destined to come. He that hath ears, let him hear! But, unto what, shall I liken this generation? It is, like, unto children, sitting the market-places, who, calling unto the others, say, We played the flute to you, and ye danced not, - we sang a lament, and ye beat not the breast. For, John, came, neither eating nor drinking, and they say - A demon, he hath! The Son of Man, came, eating and drinking, and they say, Lo! a gluttonous man and a wine-drinker! a friend of, tax-collectors, and sinners! And yet wisdom hath been justified by her works.

And John's disciples carried tidings unto him concerning all these things. And, calling unto him certain two of his disciples, John sent unto the Lord, saying - Art, thou, the Coming One, or, a different one, are we to expect? And, coming near unto him, the men said - John the Immerser, hath sent us unto thee, saying, Art, thou, the Coming One, or, another, are we to expect? read more.
In that very hour, he cured many from diseases, and plagues, and wicked spirits; and, unto many blind, gave he the favour to see. And, answering, he said unto them - Go and bear tidings unto John, as to what ye have seen and heard: The blind, are receiving sight, the lame, walk, lepers, are cleansed, and, the deaf, hear, the dead, are raised, the destitute, are told the glad-message; And, happy, is he, whosoever shall not find occasion of stumbling in me! And, the messengers of John having departed, he began to say unto the multitudes, concerning John - What went ye forth into the desert to gaze at? A reed, by a wind, shaken? But what went ye forth to see? A man, in soft garments, arrayed? Lo! they who in splendid apparel and luxury are found, are, in the kingly courts. But what went ye forth to see? A prophet? Yea! I say unto you, - and abundantly more than a prophet. This, is he concerning whom it is written - Lo! I am sending forth my messenger before thy face, who shall prepare thy way before thee. I say unto you - A greater, among them that are born of women, than John, is there none; but, he that is least in the kingdom of God, is greater than he. And, all the people, when they heard, and the tax-collectors, justified God, having been immersed with the immersion of John; but, the Pharisees and the lawyers, had set aside, the counsel of God against themselves, not being immersed by him. Unto what, then, shall I liken the men of this generation? And unto what are they like? They are like unto the children sitting, in a market-place, and calling one to another, who say - We played the flute for you, and ye danced not, We wailed, and ye wept not. For John the Immerser hath come, neither eating bread nor drinking wine, and ye say - A demon, he hath: The Son of Man hath come, eating and drinking, and ye say - Lo! a man, gluttonous and a wine-drinker, a friend of tax-collectors and sinners. And yet wisdom hath been justified by all her children.


After these things, came Jesus, and his disciples, into the Judaean land; and, there, was he tarrying with them, and immersing.

although indeed, Jesus himself, was not immersing, but his disciples,


And, he, lifting up his eyes towards his disciples, was saying: - Happy, ye destitute, for, yours, is the kingdom of God. Happy, ye that hunger now, for ye shall be filled. Happy, ye that weep now, for ye shall laugh. Happy, are ye, whensoever men shall hate you, and whensoever they shall separate you, and reproach you, and cast out your name as evil, for the sake of the Son of Man: read more.
be rejoiced in that day, and leap, for lo! your reward, is great in heaven; for, according to the same things, were their fathers doing unto the prophets. But alas! for you, ye wealthy, for ye are duly receiving you consolation. Alas! for you, ye who are filled full now, for ye shall hunger. Alas! ye that laugh now, for ye shall mourn and weep. Alas! whensoever all men shall, speak well of you, for, according to the same things, were their fathers doing unto the false prophets. But, unto you, I say, who are hearkening: Be loving your enemies; be doing, good, unto them that hate you; Be blessing them that curse you; be praying for them that wantonly insult you. To him who is smiting thee upon the one cheek, be offering, the other also; and, from him who is taking away thy mantle, thy tunic also, do not forbid: To every one asking thee, give, and, from him that taketh away thy possessions, ask them not back. And, according as ye desire that men be doing unto you, be ye doing unto them, in like manner. And, if ye love them that love you, what sort of thanks are there for you? for, even sinners, love, such as love them. For, if ye even do good unto them that do good unto you, what sort of thanks are there for you? Even sinners, the same, are doing. And, if ye lend to them from whom ye are hoping to receive, what sort of thanks are there for you? Even sinners, unto sinners, do lend, that they may receive back, as much. But love your enemies, and do good and lend, hoping for, nothing, back; and your reward shall be, great, and ye shall be sons of the Most High, - for, he, is, gracious, unto the ungrateful and wicked. Become ye compassionate, according as, your Father, is, compassionate; And do not judge, and in nowise shall ye be judged; and do not condemn, and in nowise shall ye be condemned; release, and ye shall be released; Give, and it shall be given unto you: good measure, pressed down, shaken together, running over, will they give into your lap; for, with what measure ye mete, shall it be measured back unto you. He spake, moreover, a parable also, unto them: Can, the blind, guide, the blind? will not, both, fall into, a ditch? A disciple is not above the teacher; but, when trained, every one shall be as his teacher. But why beholdest thou the mote that is in the eye of thy brother, while, the beam that is in thine own eye, thou dost not consider? How canst thou say to thy brother - Brother! let me cast out the mote that is in thine eye, - thyself, the beam in thine own eye, not beholding? Hypocrite! cast out, first, the beam out of thine own eye, and, then, shalt thou see clearly, to cast out, the mote that is in the eye of thy brother. For a good tree doth not produce worthless fruit, neither again doth, a worthless tree, produce good fruit. For, every tree, by its own fruit, becometh known. For not, of thorns, do they gather figs, neither, of a bramble-bush, do they gather, a bunch of grapes. The good man, out of the good treasure of the heart, bringeth forth that which is good; and, the wicked man, out of the wicked heart, bringeth forth that which is wicked; for, out of an overflowing of heart, speaketh, his mouth. And why call ye me, Lord! Lord! and not do the things that I say? Every one coming unto me, and hearkening unto my words, and doing them, I will suggest to you, whom he is like: He is like unto a man building a house, who digged, and deepened, and laid a foundation upon the rock, - and, a flood, coming, the stream burst against that house, and was not strong enough to shake it, because it had been, well, built. But, he that hath heard and not done, is like unto a man having built a house upon the earth, without a foundation, - against which the stream burst, and, straightway, it fell in; and it came to pass, that, the crash of that house, was, great.


But John, answering, said - Master! we saw some one, in thy name, casting out demons, - and we forbade him, because he followeth not with us. And Jesus said unto him - Do not forbid; for, whosoever is not against you, is, for you.

John said unto him - Teacher! we saw someone, in thy name, casting out demons, - and we forbade him, because he was not following with us. But, Jesus, said - Do not forbid him! For, no one, is there, who shall do a work of power in my name, and have power, soon, to revile me;


And they journey into Capernaum. And, straightway, on the Sabbath, entering into the synagogue, he began teaching; and they were being struck with astonishment at his teaching, - for he was teaching them as one having authority, and, not as the Scribes. And, straightway, there was in their synagogue, a man in an impure spirit, - and he cried out aloud, read more.
saying - What have we in common with thee, Jesus of Nazareth? Hast thou come to destroy us? I know thee, who thou art, The Holy One of God. And Jesus rebuked him, saying- Be silenced, and come forth out of him! And the impure spirit, tearing him, and calling out with a loud voice, came forth out of him; and they were amazed, one and all, so that they began to discuss among themselves, saying - What is this? New teaching! With authority, to the impure spirits also, he giveth orders, and they obey him! And forth went the report of him, straightway, on every hand, into the surrounding country of Galilee.

And he came down into Capernaum, a city of Galilee. And he was teaching them on the sabbath; and they were being struck with astonishment at his teaching, because, with authority, was his word. And, in the synagogue, was a man having a spirit of an impure demon; and he cried out with a loud voice - read more.
Let be! What have we in common with thee, O Jesus, Nazarene! Hast thou come to destroy us? I know thee, who thou art, - The Holy One of God. And Jesus rebuked it, saying - Hold thy peace! and go forth from him. And the demon, throwing him into the midst, went forth from him, doing him no hurt. And amazement came upon all, and they began to converse one with another, saying - What is this word, that, with authority and power, he giveth orders unto the impure spirits, and they go forth? And a noise concerning him began to go out into every place of the country around.


And he went away again, beyond the Jordan, unto the place where John was at the first, immersing; and he abode there. And, many, came unto him, and were saying - John, indeed, did not so much as, one sign; but, all things, whatsoever John said concerning this one, were, true. And, many, believed on him there.

The sisters, therefore, sent out unto him, saying - Lord, see! he whom thou tenderly lovest, is sick. But Jesus hearing, said - This sickness, is not unto death, but for the glory of God, - that the Son of God may be glorified thereby. Now Jesus loved Martha, and her sister, and Lazarus. read more.
When, therefore, he heard that he was sick, then, indeed, he abode in the place where he was, two days. Then, after this, he saith unto the disciples - Let us be leading on into Judaea, again. The disciples say unto him - Rabbi! just now, were the Jews seeking to stone thee - and, again, goest thou thither? Jesus answered - Are there not, twelve hours, in the day? If one walk in the day, he doth no stumble, because, the light of this world, he seeth; But, if one walk in the night, he stumbleth, because, the light, is not in him. These things, he said, and, after this, he saith unto them - Lazarus, our dear friend, hath fallen asleep; but I am going, that I may awake him. The disciples, therefore, said unto him - Lord! if he have fallen asleep, he will recover. But Jesus had spoken concerning his death; whereas, they, supposed that, concerning the taking of rest in sleep, he had been speaking. Jesus, therefore, then, said unto them, plainly, - Lazarus, died; and I rejoice, for your sake - that ye may believe, - that I was not there; but let us be going unto him. Thomas, therefore, the one called Didymus, said unto his fellow-disciples - Let, us also, be going, that we may die with him.


Then, there come unto Jesus from Jerusalem Pharisees and Scribes, saying - Wherefore do thy disciples transgress the tradition of the elders? for they wash not their hands, when they eat bread! But, he, answering, said unto them - Wherefore do, ye also, transgress the commandment of God for the sake of your tradition? read more.
For, God, said - Honour thy father and thy mother, and - He that revileth father or mother, let him, surely die! But, ye, say - Whosoever shall say to his father or his mother - A gift! Whatsoever, out of me, thou mightest be profited, in nowise, shall honour his father or his mother - and so ye have cancelled, the word of God, for the sake of your, tradition. Hypocrites! well prophesied concerning you, Isaiah, saying - This people, with the lips, do, honour, me, while, their heart, far off, holdeth from me; But, in vain, do they pay devotions unto me, teaching, for teachings, the commandments of men. And, calling near the multitude, he said to them - Hear and understand! Not that which entereth into the mouth, defileth the man, but, that which proceedeth out of the mouth, the same, defileth the man, Then, coming near, his disciples say unto him - Knowest thou, that the Pharisees, hearing the word, were caused to stumble? And, he, answering, said - Every plant which my heavenly Father hath not planted, will be uprooted: Let them alone! they are, blind leaders; and, if the, blind, lead the, blind, both, into a ditch, will fall. And Peter, answering, said unto him, Declare to us the parable. And, he, said, To this moment, are, ye also, without discernment? Perceive ye not that, every thing which entereth into the mouth, into the stomach, findeth way, and, into the draught, is passed; while, the things which proceed out of the mouth, out of the heart, come forth, and, they, defile the man. For, out of the heart, come forth wicked designs, - murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false testimonies, profane speakings: these, are the things which defile the man, but, the eating with unwashed hands, doth not defile the man.

And the Pharisees and certain of the Scribes who have come from Jerusalem gather themselves together unto him; and, observing certain of his disciples, that, with defiled hands, that is unwashed, they are eating bread, - - For, the Pharisees, and all the Jews, unless with care they wash their hands, eat not, holding fast the tradition of the elders; read more.
and coming from market, unless they sprinkle themselves, they eat not, - and, many other things, there are, which they have accepted to hold fast - immersions of cups and measures and copper vessels - - and so the Pharisees and the Scribes, question, him - For what cause do thy disciples not walk according to the tradition of the elders, but, with defiled hands, eat bread? But, he, said unto them - Well, prophesied Isaiah concerning you, ye hypocrites, as it is written - This people, with the lips do honour me, while, their heart, far off, holdeth from me, - But, in vain, do they pay devotions unto me, teaching for teachings, the commandments of men; Having, dismissed, the commandment, of God, ye, hold fast, the tradition, of men. And he was saying to them - Well, do ye set aside the commandment of God, that, your own tradition, ye may observe; For, Moses, said - Honour thy father and thy mother, and - He that revileth father or mother, let him, surely die, - But, ye, say - If a man shall say to his father or his mother, Korban! that is, A gift, whatsoever, out of me, thou mightest be profited, no longer, do ye suffer him to do, aught, for his father or his mother, - cancelling the word of God by your tradition which ye have delivered. And, many such similar things, are ye doing! And, again calling near the multitude, he was saying unto them - Hearken to me, all! and understand: Nothing, is there, from without the man, entering into him, which can defile him; but, the things which, out of the man, come forth, are the things that defile the man. And, when he entered into a house from the multitudes, his disciples began to question him as to the parable; And he saith unto them - Thus, are, ye also, without discernment? Perceive ye not that, nothing, from without, entering into the man, can defile him; because it entereth not into his heart, but into his stomach, and, into the draught, is passed - purifying all foods? And he was saying - That which, out of the man, cometh forth, that, defileth the man; For, from within, out of the heart of men, the base designs, come forth, - fornications, thefts, murders, adulteries, covetousnesses, knaveries, deceit, wantonness, an evil eye, profane speaking, foolishness, - all these wicked things, from within, come forth, and defile, the man.


And, the Pharisees and Sadducees coming near, putting him to the test, requested him, a sign out of the heaven, to shew unto them. But, he, answering said unto them - A wicked and adulterous generation, a sign, doth seek after, and, a sign, will not be given it, - save the sign of Jonah. And, leaving them behind, he departed.

And, straightway, entering into the boat with his disciples, he came into the parts of Dalmanutha; and forth came the Pharisees, and began discussing with him, seeking of him, a sign from the heaven, testing him. And, deeply sighing in his spirit, he saith - Why, doth this generation seek, a sign? Verily, I say - there shall, not be given, to this generation, a sign.



And, when he drew near, beholding the city, he wept over it, saying - If thou hadst got to know, in this day, even thou, the conditions of peace -- But, now, are they hid from thine eyes: Because days will have come upon thee, that thine enemies will throw around a rampart against thee, and enclose thee; and hem thee in from every side, - read more.
And will level thee with the ground, and thy children within thee, and will not leave, stone on stone, within thee: because thou didst not get to know the season of thy visitation.


But, Jesus, calling near his disciples, said - My compassions are moved towards the multitude, because even now, three days, abide they with me, and they have nothing to eat, - and, to dismiss them fasting, I am not willing, lest by any means they faint in the way. And his disciples say unto him - Whence, to us, in a wilderness, loaves in such numbers as to fill a multitude, so great? And Jesus saith unto them - How many, loaves have ye? And, they, said, - Seven, and a few small fishes. read more.
And, sending word to the multitude to recline upon the ground, he took the seven loaves, and the fishes, and, giving thanks, brake, - and began giving to his disciples, and, the disciples, to the multitudes. And they all did eat and were filled, - and, the remainder of the broken pieces, took they up, seven hampers, full. And, they who did eat, were four thousand men, besides women and children. And, dismissing the multitudes, he went up into the boat, - and came into the bounds of Magadan.

In those days, there being, again a large multitude, and they not having any thing to eat, calling near the disciples, he saith unto them - I am moved with compassion towards the multitude, because, already three days, abide they with me, and they have nothing to eat; and, if dismiss them fasting unto their home, they will be exhausted in the way, - and, certain of them, are, from afar. read more.
And his disciples answered him - Whence shall any one be able, here, to fill, these, with bread, in a desert? And he was questioning them - How many loaves have ye? and they said - Seven. And he sendeth word to the multitude, to fall back upon the ground. And, taking the seven loaves, giving thanks, he brake, and was giving unto his disciples, that they might be setting before them; and they set before the multitude. And they had a few small fishes; and, blessing them, he bade them set, these also, before them. And they did eat, and were filled, and took up remainders of broken pieces, seven hampers. Now they were about four thousand; and he dismissed them.


And it came to pass, when Jesus had finished these parables, he removed from thence; and, coming into his own city, began teaching them in their synagogue, so that with astonishment were they being struck, and were saying - Whence, hath, this one, this wisdom, and the mighty works? Is not, this one, the carpenter's, son? Is not, his mother, called Mary, and are not his brethren - James and Joseph, and Simon, and Judas? read more.
and, his sisters, are they not all with us? Whence, then hath, this one, all these things? And they began to find cause of stumbling in him. But, Jesus, said unto them - A prophet is not without honour, save in his city, and in his house. And he did not, there, many mighty works, because of their unbelief.

And he went forth from thence, and cometh into his own city, - and his disciples follow him. And, when it was Sabbath, he began to be teaching in the synagogue, and, the greater part, as they heard, were being struck with astonishment, saying - Whence hath this man these things? - and - What the wisdom which hath been given to this man? - and - Such mighty works as these, through his hands, are coming to pass! 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 finding cause of stumbling in him. read more.
And Jesus was saying unto them - A prophet is not without honour, save in his own city and among his kinsfolk, and in his house; and he could not, there, do so much as a single mighty work, - save, on a few sick, he laid his hands and cured them. And he marvelled because of their unbelief. And he was going round the villages in a circuit, teaching.


The Lineage Roll of Jesus Christ, - Son of David, Son of Abraham. Abraham begat Isaac, and Isaac begat Jacob, and Jacob, begat Judah and his brethren; And Judah begat Perez and Zarah of Tamah, and Perez begat Hezron, and Hezron begat Ram; read more.
And Ram begat Amminadab, and Amminadab begat Nashon, and Nashon begat Salmon; And Salmon begat Boaz of Rahab, and Boaz begat Obed of Ruth, and Obed begat Jesse; And Jesse begat David the King. And David begat Solomon of her that had been the wife of Uriah; And Solomon begat Rehoboam, and Rehoboam begat Abijah, and Abijah begat Asa; And Asa begat Jehoshaphat, and Jehoshaphat begat Joram, and Joram begat Uzziah; And Uzziah begat Jotham, and Jotham begat Ahaz, and Ahaz begat Hezekiah: And Hezekiah begat Manasseh, and Manasseh begat Amon, and Amon begat Josiah; And Josiah begat Jechoniah, and his brethren, - upon the removal to Babylon. And, after the removal to Babylon, Jechoniah begat Shealtiel, and Shealtiel begat Zerubbabel; And Zerubbabel begat Abiud, and Abiud begat Eliakim, and Eliakim begat Azor; And Azor begat Sadoc, and Sadoc begat Achim, and Achim begat Eliud; And Eliud begat Eleazar, and Eleazar begat Matthan, and Matthan begat Jacob; - And Jacob begat Joseph, the husband of Mary, of whom was born Jesus, - who is called Christ. So then, all the generations from Abraham unto David, are, fourteen, generations, and, from David unto the removal to Babylon, fourteen, generations; and, from the removal to Babylon unto the Christ, fourteen, generations.

And, Jesus himself, was, when he began, about thirty years of age, being the son, as was supposed - of Joseph, of Heli: of Matthat, of Levi, of Melchi, - of Jannai, of Joseph: of Mattathias, of Amos, of Nahum, - of Esli, of Naggai: read more.
of Maath, of Mattathias, of Semein, - of Josech, of Joda: of Joanan, of Rhesa, of Zerubbabel, - of Salathiel, of Neri: of Melchi, of Addi, of Cosam, - of Elmadam, of Er: of Jesus, of Eliezer, of Jorim, - of Matthat, of Levi: of Symeon, of Judas, of Joseph, - of Jonam, of Eliakim: of Melea, of Menna, of Mattatha, - of Natham, of David: of Jesse, of Obed, of Boaz, - of Salmon, of Nashon: of Amminadab, of Arni, of Hezron, - of Perez, of Judah: of Jacob, of Isaac, of Abraham, - of Terah, of Nahor: of Serug, of Reu, of Peleg, - of Eber, of Shelah: of Cainan, of Arphaxad, of Shem, - of Noah, of Lamech: of Methuselah, of Enoch, of Jared, - of Mahalaleel, of Cainan: of Enos, of Seth, - of Adam; of God.


After he had completed all his sayings within the hearing of the people, he entered into Capernaum. And, a certain centurion's servant, being sick, was on the point of dying, - who was, by him, highly prized. But, hearing about Jesus, he sent forth unto him elders of the Jews, requesting him that he would come and bring his servant safely through. read more.
And, they, coming near unto Jesus, began beseeching him earnestly, saying - Worthy, is he for whom thou mayest do this, for he loveth our nation, and, the synagogue, he, built for us. And, Jesus, was journeying with them. But, he, by this time, being not far from the house, the centurion sent friends, saying unto him - Lord! do not trouble thyself, for I am of no consideration, that, under my roof, thou shouldst enter. Wherefore, neither deemed I, myself, worthy to come unto thee, - but speak with a word, and let my servant be healed. For, I too, am a man ranked, under authority, having, under myself, soldiers; and I say to this one - Go! and he goeth, - and to another - Come! and he cometh, - and to my servant - Do this! and he doeth it. And, hearing these things, Jesus marvelled at him; and, turning to the multitude following him, said - I tell you, Not even in Israel, such faith as this, have I found! And they who were sent, returning unto the house, found the servant, well.

And, when he entered into Capernaum, there came near unto him a centurion, beseeching him, and saying, Lord! my servant, is laid prostrate in the house, a paralytic, fearfully tortured. He saith unto him, I, will come and cure him. read more.
But the centurion, answering, said, Lord! I am of no consideration, that, under my roof, thou shouldest enter, - but, only say with a word, and healed shall be my servant. For, I also, am a man setunder authority, having under myself, soldiers, - and I say to this one, Go! and he goeth, and to another, Come! and he cometh, and, to my servant, Do this! and he doeth it. Now Jesus, hearing, marveled, and said to them that followed, - Verily, I say unto you, With no one in Israel, such faith as this, have I found. But I say unto you, Many from east and west, will have come, and shall recline with Abraham and Isaac and Jacob, in the kingdom of the heavens; Whereas, the sons of the kingdom, shall be cast forth into the darkness outside, - There, will be wailing and gnashing of teeth. And Jesus said unto the centurion, Withdraw! and, as thou hast believed, be it done for thee. And healed was the servant in that hour.


And, the eleven disciples, went into Galilee, unto the mountain which, Jesus, had appointed them;

After these things, Jesus manifested himself again, unto the disciples, by the sea of Tiberias; and manifested himself, thus: - There were together, Simon Peter, and Thomas, who was called Didymus, and Nathanael, who was from Cana of Galilee, and the sons of Zebedee, and, two other, of his disciples.


And Jesus said - For judgment, I, unto this world, came: that, they who were not seeing, might see, and, they who were seeing, might become, blind. They of the Pharisees who were with him, heard, these things, and said unto him - Are, we also, blind? Jesus said unto them - If, blind, ye had been, ye had not had sin; but, now, ye say, We see, your sin, abideth.

Verily, verily, I say unto you: - He that entereth not, through the door, into the fold of the sheep, but goeth up from another place, that man, is, a thief, and, a robber. But, he that entereth through the door, is, shepherd, of the sheep: To him, the porter openeth, and, the sheep, unto his voice, hearken: and, his own sheep, he calleth by name, and leadeth them forth. read more.
As soon as, all his own, he hath put forth, before them, he moveth on, and, the sheep, follow him, because they know his voice; But, a stranger, will they in nowise follow, but will flee from him, because they know not the voice, of strangers. This similitude, spake Jesus unto them; but, those men, understood not what the things were which he was speaking unto them. Jesus, therefore, said, again - Verily, verily, I say unto you: - I, am the door of the sheep: All, as many as came before me, are thieves, and, robbers: but the sheep hearkened nor unto them. I, am the door: through me, if anyone enter, he shall be saved, and shall come in and go out, and, pasture, shall find. The thief, cometh not, save that he may thieve and slay and destroy: I, came, that, life, they might have, and, above measure, might have. I, am the good shepherd: The good shepherd, his life, layeth down, for the sheep. The hireling, even because he is no shepherd, whose own the sheep are not, vieweth the wolf coming, and leaveth the sheep, and fleeth, - and, the wolf, seizeth them and scattereth, - Because, a hireling, he is, and hath no care for the sheep. I, am the good shepherd, and know my own, and, my own, know me, - Just as, the Father, knoweth me, and, I, know, the Father; and, my life, I lay down for the sheep. And, other sheep, have I, which are not of this fold: those also, I must needs bring, and, unto my voice, will they hearken, and there shall come to be, One flock, One shepherd. Therefore, doth the Father, love, me, because, I, lay down my life, that, again, I may receive it: - No one, forced it from me, but, I, lay it down, of myself, - Authority, have I, to lay it down, and, authority, have I, again, to receive it: This commandment, received I, from my Father. A division, again, took place among the Jews, because of these words. But many from among them were saying - A demon, he hath, and is raving, - Why, unto him, do ye hearken? Others, said - These sayings, are not those of one demonized, - Can, a demon, open the eyes of, the blind?


After that, he appeared unto James, then, unto all the apostles,

Unto whom he also presented himself alive, after he had suffered, by many sure tokens, throughout forty days making himself visible unto them, and speaking the things concerning the kingdom of God. And being in company with them he charged them, from Jerusalem, not to absent themselves, but - To abide around the promise of the Father which ye have heard of me, Because, John, indeed, immersed with water; but, ye, in Holy Spirit shall be immersed, - after not many of these days. read more.
They, therefore, having come together, began to question him, saying - Lord! art thou at this time duly establishing the kingdom unto Israel? He said unto them - It is not yours to get to know times or seasons which the Father hath put in his own authority; But ye shall receive power when the Holy Spirit cometh upon you, and ye shall be my witnesses, both in Jerusalem and inall Judaea and Samaria and as far as the uttermost part of the land.


And that he appeared unto Cephas, then, to the twelve,

saying - In truth, the Lord hath arisen, and hath appeared unto Simon!


And he went on to say, unto his disciples also, - There was, a certain rich man, who had a steward, and, the same, was accused to him as squandering his goods. And, accosting him, he said unto him - What is this I hear of thee? Render the account of thy stewardship, for thou canst no longer be steward. And the steward said within himself - What shall I do, because my lord taketh away the stewardship from me? Dig, I cannot: to beg, I am ashamed. read more.
I know what I will do, that, when I am removed out of the stewardship, they may welcome me into their own houses. And, calling unto him each one of the debtors of his own lord, he was saying unto the first, - How much owest thou my lord? And, he, said - A hundred baths of oil. And, he, said unto him - Kindly take thine accounts, and, sitting down, make haste and write - Fifty! After that, unto another, he said - And how much owest, thou? And, he, said - A hundred homers of wheat. He saith unto him - Kindly take thine accounts, and write - Eighty! And the lord praised the unrighteous steward, in that with forethought he acted: - Because, the sons of this age, have more forethought than the sons of light, respecting their own generation. And, I, unto you, say - For yourselves, make ye friends, with the unjust Riches, in order that, as soon as it shall fail, they may welcome you into the age-abiding tents. The faithful in least, in much also, is, faithful, and, he that in least is unrighteous, in much also, is, unrighteous. If therefore, in the unjust Riches ye proved unfaithful, the true, who, unto you, will entrust? And, if, in what was another's, ye proved unfaithful, your own, who will give unto you? No domestic, can, unto two masters, be in service; for either, the one, he will hate, and, the other, love, or, unto the one, he will hold, and, the other, despise: Ye cannot, unto God, be in service, and unto Riches.



Presently, however, the feast being at its height, Jesus went up unto the temple and was teaching. The Jews, therefore, began to marvel, saying - How, doth this one know, letters, not having learned? Jesus, therefore, answered them, and said - My teaching, is not mine, but his who sent me. read more.
If any one intend, his will, to do, he shall get to know concerning the teaching - whether it is, of God, or, I, from myself, am speaking, He that, from himself, doth speak, his own glory, is seeking: he that seeketh the glory of him that sent him, the same, is, true, and, injustice, in him, is there none. Did not, Moses, give you the law? And yet, not one of you, doeth the law! - Why, seek ye, to slay, me? The multitude answered - A demon, thou hast: Who, is seeking, to slay, thee? Jesus answered, and said unto them - One work, I did, and ye, all, are marvelling: For this cause, Moses, hath given you, circumcision, - not that, of Moses, it is, but of the fathers; - and, on Sabbath, ye circumcise a man. If, circumcision, a man receiveth, on Sabbath, that the law of Moses may not be broken, with me, are ye bitter as gall, because, a whole man, I made, well, on Sabbath? Be not judging according to appearance, but, just judgment, be judging, So then, some of them of Jerusalem were saying - Is not, this, he whom they are seeking to kill? And yet, see! with freedom of speech, he is talking, and, nothing, unto him, do they say: - Have the rulers perhaps come to know, of a truth, that, this, is, the Christ? But, as for this one, we know whence he is; The Christ, however, whensoever he shall come, no one, getteth to know whence he is. Jesus, therefore, cried aloud in the temple, teaching, and saying - Both me, ye know, and ye know whence I am, - and yet, of myself, have I not come, but he is real, who sent me, whom, ye, know not. I, know him, because, from him, I am, and, he, sent me forth. They were seeking therefore to seize him; and yet no one laid on him his hand, because, not yet, had come his hour. But, from amongst the multitude, many, believed on him, and were saying - The Christ, whensoever he cometh, greater signs, will he do, than those which, this one, did? The Pharisees hearkened unto the multitude murmuring concerning him these things; and the High-priests and the Pharisees sent forth officers, that they might seize him. Jesus, therefore, said - Yet a little time, I am, with you, and withdraw unto him that sent me: Ye shall seek me, and not find me, and, where, I, am, ye, cannot come. The Jews, therefore, said unto themselves - Whither, is, this one, about to go, that we shall not find him? Unto the dispersion of the Greeks, is he about to go, and teach the Greeks? What, is this which he said: Ye shall seek me and not find me, and, where, I, am, ye, cannot come? Now, on the last - the great - day of the feast, Jesus was standing, and he cried aloud, saying - If any man thirst, let him come unto me and drink: He that believeth on me - just as said the Scripture, - River, from within him, shall flow, of living water. Now, this, spake he concerning the Spirit which they who believed on him were about to receive; for, not yet, was there Spirit, because, Jesus, not yet, was glorified! Some from amongst the multitude, therefore, having hearkened unto these words, were saying - This, is, in truth, the prophet. Others, were saying - This, is, the Christ. But, others, were saying - Out of Galilee, is, the Christ, to come? Hath not the Scripture said: Of the seed of David, and from Bethlehem, the village where David was, cometh the Christ? A division, therefore, arose in the multitude, because of him. Certain, indeed, from among them, were wishing to seize him; but, no one, thrust upon him his hands. So then the officers came unto the High-priests and Pharisees, and, they, said unto them - For what cause, have ye not brought him? The officers answered - Never, man spake thus! The Pharisees, therefore, answered them - Surely, ye also, have not been led astray? Surely, none of the rulers, hath believed in him, nor of the Pharisees? But, this multitude, that take no note of the law, are, laid under a curse. Nicodemus saith unto them - he that came unto him formerly, being, one, from among them - Surely, our law, doth not judge the man, unless it hear first from him, and get to know what he is doing? They answered and said unto him - Surely, thou also, art not, of Galilee? Search and see! That, out of Galilee, a prophet is not to arise.


The High-priests and Pharisees, therefore, brought together a high-council, and were saying - What are we to do, in that, this man, doeth, many signs? If we let him alone thus, all, will believe on him, and the Romans will come, and take away, both our place and nation. But, a certain one from among them, Caiaphas, being, High-priest, for that year, said unto them - Ye, know, nothing at all; read more.
nor do ye take into account, that it is profitable for you that, one man, should die for the people, and not, the whole nation, perish. This, however, from himself, he spake not, but, being, High-priest, for that year, he prophesied, that Jesus was about to die for the nation; and, not for the nation only, but that, the scattered children of God also, he might gather together into one. From that day, therefore, they took counsel, that they might put him to death. Jesus, therefore, no longer openly, was walking among the Jews, but departed thence, into the country near the desert, unto a city called, Ephraim; and, there, abode, with his disciples.


And, eight days after, his disciples again were within, and Thomas with them. Jesus cometh - the doors having been made fast - and stood in the midst, and said - Peace be unto you! Then, saith he unto Thomas - Reach thy finger hither, and see my hands, and reach thy hand, and press into my side, - and become not disbelieving, but believing. Thomas answered, and said unto him - My Lord, and my God! read more.
Jesus saith unto him - Because thou hast seen me, hast thou believed? Happy, they who have not seen, and yet have believed!


The feast of dedication took place at that time, in Jerusalem: it was, winter, and Jesus was walking in the temple, in the porch of Solomon. The Jews, therefore, surrounded him, and were saying unto him - How long, holdest thou, our lives, in suspense? If, thou, art the Christ, tell us, plainly. read more.
Jesus answered them - I told you, and ye believe not: The works which, I, am doing in the name of my Father, the same, bear witness concerning me. But, ye, believe not, because ye are not of my sheep. My sheep, unto my voice, hearken, - and, I, know, them, and they follow me, - And, I, give unto them life age-abiding, and in nowise shall they perish, unto times age-abiding; and no one shall carry them off out of my hand. What, my Father, hath given me, is, something greater than all, and, no one, can carry off out of the hand of my Father: - I and the Father, are, one. The Jews again lifted up stones, that they might stone him. Jesus answered them - Many works, have I showed you, noble ones, from my Father: For which of those works are ye stoning me? The Jews answered him - Concerning a noble work, are we not stoning thee; but concerning profane speech, - and because, thou, being, a man, art making thyself, God. Jesus answered them - Is it not written in your law: I, said, Ye are, gods? If, those, he called gods, unto whom, the word of God, came - and the Scripture cannot be broken - Of him whom, the Father, hallowed and sent forth into the world, are, ye, saying - Thou speakest profanely, because I said, Son of God, I am? If I am not doing the works of my Father, do not believe in me; But, if I am doing them, even though, in me, ye believe not, in the works, believe, - that ye may get to know and go on to know, that the Father is, in me, and, I, am, in the Father. They were thereforeagain seeking to take him; and he went forth out of their hand.


And, although such signs, as these, he had done before them, they were not believing on him: - that, the word of Isaiah the prophet, might be fulfilled, which said - Lord! who believed, what we have heard? And, the arm of the Lord, to whom, was it revealed? On this account, they could not believe, because, again, said Isaiah - read more.
He hath blinded their eyes, and hardened their heart; lest they should see with their eyes, and should understand with their heart, and should turn, - and I should heal them. These things, said Isaiah, because he saw his glory, and spake concerning him. Nevertheless, however, even from among the rulers, many believed on him; but, because of the Pharisees, they were not confessing him, lest, excommunicants from the synagogue, they should be made; for they loved the glory of men, more than the glory of God. And, Jesus, cried aloud, and said - He that believeth on me, believeth not on me, but on him that sent me; And, he that vieweth me, vieweth him that sent me. I, a light, into the world have come, that, no one who believeth on me, in darkness, should abide. And, if anyone shall hearken unto my sayings, and not guard them, I, am not judging him; for I came not that I might judge the world, but that I might save the world. He that setteth me aside, and receiveth not my sayings, hath that which is to judge him: The word that I spake, that, will judge him, in the last day. Because, I, out of myself, spake not, but, the Father who sent me, hath, himself, given me commandment, what I should say, and what I should speak. And I know that, his commandment, is, life age-abiding; The things, therefore, which I speak, just as the Father hath told me, so, I speak.


And, the eleven disciples, went into Galilee, unto the mountain which, Jesus, had appointed them; and, seeing him, they worshipped, but, some, doubted. And Jesus, coming near, spake unto them, saying - All authority, in heaven and on earth, hath been given unto me; read more.
Go ye, therefore, and disciple all the nations, Immersing them into the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, - Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I myself have commanded you, And lo! I, am, with you, all the days, until the conclusion of the age.


And, being questioned by the Pharisees, When cometh the kingdom of God? he answered them and said - The kingdom of God cometh not with narrow watching; Neither shall they say - Lo, here! or, There. For lo! the kingdom of God, is, among you. But he said unto the disciples - There will come days - when ye will long to see, one of the days of the Son of Man, and shall not see. read more.
And they will say unto you, Lo there! or, Lo here! Do not depart, and do notpursue. For, just as, the lightning, flashing out of the one part under heaven, unto the other part under heaven, shineth, so, shall be, the Son of Man. But, first, he must needs suffer, many things, and be rejected by this generation. And, as it came to pass in the days of Noah, so, will it be, even in the days of the Son of Man: They were eating, they were drinking, they were marrying, they were being given in marriage, - until the day that Noah entered into the ark, and the flood came, and destroyed them all. In like manner, as it came to pass in the days of Lot, They were eating, they were drinking, they were buying, they were selling, they were planting, they were building, - But, on the day Lot came out from Sodom, it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all: - According to the same things, will it be on the day the Son of Man is revealed. In that day, he that shall be on the housetop, and his utensils in the house, let him not go down, to take them away! And, he that is in the field, in like manner, let him not turn unto the things behind, Bear in mind the wife of Lot! Whosoever shall seek to make his life his own, shall lose it, But, whosoever shall lose it, shall give it a living birth. I say unto you - On the selfsame night, there shall be two men on onebed, - the one, shall be taken near, and, the other, left behind; There shall be two women grinding together, - the one, shall be taken near, and, the other, left behind. And, answering, they say unto him - Where, Lord? And, he, said unto them - Where the body is, there, the vultures also, will be gathered together.


But, whensoever the Son of Man shall come in his glory, and all the messengers with him, then will he sit on his throne of glory; And there will be gathered before him, all the nations, and he will separate them one from another, just as, the shepherd! separateth the sheep from the goats, - And he will set, the sheep, indeed, on his right hand, but, the goats, on the left. read more.
Then, will the king say to those on his right hand: Come ye, the blessed of my Father! Inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world; For I hungered, and ye gave me to eat, I thirsted, and ye gave me drink, a stranger, was I, and ye took me home, Naked, and ye clothed me, sick, and ye visited me, in prison, was I, and ye came unto me. Then, will the righteous answer him, saying: Lord! when, saw we thee - hungry, and fed thee, or thirsty, and gave thee drink? And, when, saw we thee - a stranger, and took thee home, or naked, and clothed thee? And, when, saw we thee - sick, or in prison, and came unto thee? And, answering, the king will say unto them: Verily, I say unto you - Inasmuch as ye did it unto one of these my least brethren, unto me, ye did it. Then, will he say unto those also, on his left hand: Depart ye from me, accursed ones! Into the age-abiding fire, which hath been prepared for the adversary and his messengers; For I hungered, and ye gave me not to eat, and I was thirsty, and ye gave me not to drink, A stranger, was I, and ye took me not home, naked, and ye clothed me not, sick, and in prison, and ye visited me not. Then, will, they also, answer, saying: Lord! when saw we thee - hungry, or thirsty, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and ministered not unto thee? Then, will he answer them, saying: Verily, I say unto you - Inasmuch as ye did it not, unto one of these least, neither unto me, did ye it. And, these, shall go away, into, age-abiding, correction, but, the righteous, into, age-abiding, life.


And there were journeying together with him many multitudes; and, turning, he said unto them - If anyone cometh unto me, and hateth not his own father, and mother, and wife, and children, and brothers, and sisters, further also, even his own life, he cannot be my disciple. Whoever beareth not his own cross, and cometh after me, cannot be my disciple. read more.
For, who from among you, wishing to build a tower, doth not first sit down and count the cost, - whether he hath sufficient for completion; lest once, he having laid a foundation, and not being able to finish, all who are looking on, should begin to mock at him, saying - This man, began to build, and was not able to finish! Or, what king, moving on to encounter, another king, in battle, will not sit down first and take counsel, whether he is able, with ten thousand, to meet him who, with twenty thousand, is coming against him. And, if not, by any means, while he is yet afar off, he sendeth, an embassy, and requesteth the conditions of peace. Thus, therefore, everyone from amongst you, who doth not bid adieu unto all his own possessions, cannot be my disciple. Good, therefore is the salt; but, if, even the salt, become tasteless, wherewith shall it be seasoned? Neither for land nor for manure, is it, fit: outside, they cast it! He that hath ears to hear, let him hear.


And, as they were journeying, he, entered into a certain village; and, a certain woman, named Martha, welcomed him into her house. And, she, had a sister, called Mary, who also, seating herself at the feet of the Lord, was hearing his word. But, Martha, was distracted about much ministering, and, coming near, said - Lord! carest thou not that, my sister, hath left me to be ministering, alone? Speak to her, then, that she help me. read more.
But the Lord, answering, said to her - Martha! Martha! thou art anxious and troubled about many things: Of few things, is there need, or, of one; Mary, in fact, hath chosen, the good part, - one which shall not be taken away from her.


Now, a certain man, was rich, and he used to clothe himself with purple and fine linen, making merry day by day, brilliantly. And, a certain beggar, by name Lazarus, used to be cast near his gate, full of sores, and to long to be fed from the crumbs that fell from the table of the rich man: nay! even, the dogs, used to come and lick his sores. read more.
And it came to pass that the beggar died, and was carried away by the messengers, into the bosom of Abraham. And, the rich man also, died, and was buried. And, in hades, lifting up his eyes, being in torments, he seeth Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom. And, he, calling out, said - Father Abraham! have mercy upon me, and send Lazarus, that he may dip the tip of his finger in water, and cool my tongue, - because I am in anguish in this flame. But Abraham said - Child! remember - That thou didst duly received thy good things in thy life, and, Lazarus, in like manner, the evil things; but, now, here, he is comforted, and, thou, art in anguish. And, besides all these things, betwixt us and you, a great chasm, hath been fixed, - so that, they who might wish to cross over from hence unto you, should not be able, nor any, from thence unto us, be crossing over. But he said - I request thee then, father, that thou wouldst send him unto my father's house, - for I have five brethren; - that he may solemnly testify unto them, lest, they also, come into this place of torment. But Abraham saith - They have Moses and the Prophets: Let them hearken unto them. But, he, said - Nay! father Abraham, but, if one, from the dead, should go unto them, they would repent. But he said unto him - If, unto Moses and the Prophets, they do not hearken, neither, if one, from among the dead, should arise, would they be persuaded.


And it came to pass, during the journey unto Jerusalem, that, he, was going through the midst of Samaria and Galilee. And, as he was entering into a certain village, there met him ten leprous men, who stood still, afar off; and, they, lifted up a voice, saying - Jesus! Master! have mercy on us! read more.
And, beholding, he said unto them - Go your way, and show yourselves unto the priests. And it came to pass, as they withdrew, they were cleansed. But, one from among them, beholding that he was healed, returned, with a loud voice, glorifying God, - and fell prostrate at his feet, giving him thanks; and, he, was a Samaritan. And Jesus, answering, said - Were not, the ten, cleansed? but,where, are, the nine? Have none been found returning to give glory to God, save this one of another race? And he said unto him - Arise and go thy way: thy faith, hath saved thee.


And, when he had spoken, a Pharisee was requesting him that he would dine with him; and, entering, he reclined. And, the Pharisee, beholding, marvelled that he was not, first, immersed, before the dinner. And the Lord said unto him: Now, ye, the Pharisees, the outside of the cup and of the tray, do make pure; but, your inward part, is full of plunder and wickedness. read more.
Simple ones! Did not, he who made the outside, the inside also, make? Notwithstanding, as to the things within, give alms, and lo! everything, is, pure unto you. But alas for you, the Pharisees! because ye tithe the mint, and the rue, and every garden herb, and pass by justice, and the love of God. But, these things, it was biding to do, and, those, not to pass by. Alas for you, the Pharisees! because ye love the first seats in the synagogues, and the salutations in the market-places! Alas for you! because ye are as the secret tombs: even the men that are walking above them, know it not. And, making answer, one of the Lawyers saith unto him, Teacher! these things, saying, us also, dost thou insult! And, he, said - And, for you, the lawyers, alas! because ye lade men with burdens hard to be borne, and, yourselves, with one of your fingers, touch not the burdens. Alas for you! because ye build the tombs of the prophets, and your fathers slew them! Hence, witnesses, are ye, and find consenting pleasure in the works of your fathers: because, they, indeed, slew them, and, ye, are building, their tombs . For this cause, the Wisdom of God hath said - I will send forth, unto them, prophets and apostles, - and, some from among them, will they slay, and, some persecute: That the blood of all the prophets which hath been shed from the foundation of the world, may be sought out, from this generation, - From the blood of Abel, unto the blood of Zachariah who was destroyed betwixt the altar and the house; Yea! I say unto you - It shall be sought out from this generation. Alas for you, the lawyers! because ye took away the key of knowledge: yourselves, entered not, and, them who were entering, ye hindered. And, when, from thence, he came out, the Scribes and the Pharisees began, with vehemence, to be hemming him in, and trying to make him speak off-hand concerning many things, - lying in wait for him, to catch something out of his mouth.


And, near, was the passover of the Jews; and, Jesus, went up unto Jerusalem. And he found, in the temple, them that were selling oxen and sheep and doves, also the money-changers sitting. And, making a scourge out of rushes, all of them, thrust he forth out of the temple, both the sheep and the oxen; and, the money-changers' small coins, poured he forth, and, the tables, he overturned; read more.
and unto them who were selling, the doves, he said - Take these things hence! Be not making, the house of my Father, a house of merchandise. His disciples remembered that it was written - The zeal of thy house, eateth me up. The Jews therefore answered, and said unto him, What sign, dost thou point out to us, in that, these things, thou doest? Jesus answered, and said unto them - Take down this shrine, and, in three days, will I raise it. The Jews, therefore, said - In forty and six years, was this shrine built. And, thou, in three days, wilt raise it! But, he, was speaking concerning the shrine of his body. When, therefore, he had been raised from among the dead, his disciples remembered, that, this, he had been saying; and they believed in the Scripture, and in the word which Jesus had spoken. Now, when he was in Jerusalem, during the passover, during the feast, many, believed on his name, viewing his signs which he was doing. Jesus himself, however, was not trusting himself unto them, by reason of his understanding them all, and because he had, no need, that anyone should bear witness concerning man; for, he, understood what was in man.


So he came again into Cana of Galilee, where he had made the water, wine. And there was a certain courtier, whose son was sick, in Capernaum. The same, hearing that Jesus had come out of Judaea into Galilee, came away unto him, and began requesting him, that he would come down and heal his son; for he was on the point of dying. Jesus therefore said unto him - Except, signs and wonders, ye see, in nowise will ye believe. read more.
The courtier saith unto him - Sir! come down, ere my child die! Jesus saith unto him - Be going thy way: thy son, liveth! And the man believed in the word which Jesus spake to him, and at once went his way. And, when he was even now going down, his servants, met him, saying, that, his boy, was living. So he enquired the hour, from them, when he began, to amend. They said, therefore, unto him - Yesterday, at the seventh hour, the fever left him. So the father took note that it was, in that hour, wherein Jesus said unto him - Thy son, liveth! and he believed, he, and all his house. Now, this again, as, a second sign, Jesus did, after coming out of Judaea into Galilee.


And the seventy -tworeturned, with joy, saying - Lord! even the demons, submit themselves unto us, in thy name! And he said unto them - I was beholding Satan, when, like lightning, out of heaven, he fell! Lo! I have given you the authority - to be treading upon serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and, nothing, unto you, shall in anywise do harm; read more.
Notwithstanding, in this, be not rejoicing - that, the spirits, unto you submit themselves; but be rejoicing - that, your names, are inscribed in the heavens! In the self-same hour, exulted he in the Holy Spirit, and said - I openly give praise unto thee, Father! Lord of heaven and earth! in that thou hast hid these things from the wise and discerning, and hast revealed them unto babes, - Yea, O Father! that, so, hath it become, a delight, before thee. All things, unto me, have been delivered up by my Father; and, no one, knoweth, who the Son is, save the Father, - and who the Father is, save the Son, and he to whomsoever the Son may be minded to reveal him. And, turning unto his disciples, privately, he said - Happy, the eyes, that see what ye see! For I tell you, Many prophets and kings, have desired to see what, ye, see, and they saw not, and to hear what ye hear, and they heard not.


And, this, is the witness of John, when the Jews sent forth unto him, out of Jerusalem, priests and Levites, - that they might question him - Who art, thou? and he confessed, and did not deny, - and he confessed - I, am not, the Christ; and they questioned him - What then? Art, thou, Elijah? and he saith - I am not; The prophet, art, thou? and he answered - No! read more.
So they said unto him - Who, art thou? that, an answer, we may give, unto them who sent us, - What sayest thou, concerning thyself? He said - I, am a Voice, of one crying aloud; - In the desert, make ye straight, the way of the Lord: according as said Isaiah the prophet. And they had been sent forth from among the Pharisees; and they questioned him, and said unto him - Why, then, dost thou immerse, - if, thou, art not, the Christ, nor Elijah, nor, the Prophet? John answered them, saying - I, immerse, in water. In the midst of you, standeth one, whom, ye, know not; - after me, coming: - Of whom, I, am not worthy that I should unloose the thong of the sandal. These things, in Bethany, came to pass, beyond the Jordan, where John was, immersing. On the morrow, he beholdeth Jesus, coming unto him, and saith - See! the Lamb of God, who taketh away the sin of the world. This, is he, of whom, I, said - After me, cometh a man, who, before me, hath advanced, because, my Chief, was he. And, I, knew him not, but, that he might be manifested unto Israel, therefore, came, I, in water, immersing. And John bare witness, saying - I have gazed upon the Spirit, descending like a dove, out of heaven, - and it abode upon him. And, I, knew him not, - but, he that sent me to immerse in water, he, unto me, said - Upon whomsoever thou shalt see the Spirit descending and abiding upon him, the same, is he that immerseth in Holy Spirit. I, therefore, have seen, and borne witness - That, this, is, the, Son of God.


And he was teaching day by day in the temple; but, the High-priests and the Scribes, also the chiefs of the people, were seeking to destroy him, - and could not find what they might do, for, the people, one and all, were hanging upon him, as they hearkened.


Now a certain man was sick, Lazarus of Bethany, of the village of Mary and Martha her sister. And Mary was she who anointed the Lord with perfume, and wiped his feet with her hair - whose brother Lazarus was sick. The sisters, therefore, sent out unto him, saying - Lord, see! he whom thou tenderly lovest, is sick. read more.
But Jesus hearing, said - This sickness, is not unto death, but for the glory of God, - that the Son of God may be glorified thereby. Now Jesus loved Martha, and her sister, and Lazarus. When, therefore, he heard that he was sick, then, indeed, he abode in the place where he was, two days. Then, after this, he saith unto the disciples - Let us be leading on into Judaea, again. The disciples say unto him - Rabbi! just now, were the Jews seeking to stone thee - and, again, goest thou thither? Jesus answered - Are there not, twelve hours, in the day? If one walk in the day, he doth no stumble, because, the light of this world, he seeth; But, if one walk in the night, he stumbleth, because, the light, is not in him. These things, he said, and, after this, he saith unto them - Lazarus, our dear friend, hath fallen asleep; but I am going, that I may awake him. The disciples, therefore, said unto him - Lord! if he have fallen asleep, he will recover. But Jesus had spoken concerning his death; whereas, they, supposed that, concerning the taking of rest in sleep, he had been speaking. Jesus, therefore, then, said unto them, plainly, - Lazarus, died; and I rejoice, for your sake - that ye may believe, - that I was not there; but let us be going unto him. Thomas, therefore, the one called Didymus, said unto his fellow-disciples - Let, us also, be going, that we may die with him. Jesus, therefore, coming, found that, four days already, had he been in the tomb. Now Bethany was near Jerusalem, about fifteen furlongs off; and, many from among the Jews, had come unto Martha and Mary, that they might console them concerning their brother. Martha, therefore, when she heard that Jesus was coming, went to meet him; but, Mary, in the house, remained sitting. Martha, therefore, said unto Jesus - Lord! if thou hadst been here, my brother had not died; And, now, I know, that, whatsoever thou shalt ask of God, God, will give unto thee. Jesus saith unto her - Thy brother shall rise. Martha saith unto him, I know that he shall rise, in the resurrection, in the last day. Jesus said unto her - I, am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth on me, even though he die, shall live again! And, no one who liveth again and believeth on me, shall in anywise die, unto times age-abiding. Believest thou this? She saith unto him - Yea, Lord! I, have believed, that, thou, art the Christ, the Son of God, - He who, into the world, should come. And this saying, she went away, and called Mary her sister, secretly, saying - The teacher, is present, and calleth thee. And, she, when she heard, was roused up quickly, and was coming unto him. Not yet, however, had Jesus come into the village, but was still in the place where, Martha, met him. The Jews, therefore, who were with her in the house and consoling her, seeing Mary, that quickly she arose and went out, followed her, supposing that she was withdrawing unto the tomb, that she might weep there. Mary, therefore, when she came where Jesus was, seeing him, fell at his feet, saying unto him - Lord! if thou hadst been here, my brother had not died. Jesus, therefore, when he saw her weeping, and the Jews who came with her weeping, was indignant in the spirit, and troubled himself, and said - Where have ye laid him? They say unto him - Lord! come and see. Jesus wept. The Jews, therefore, were saying - See! how tenderly he loved him! But, some from among them, said - Could not this man, who opened the eyes of the blind, have caused that, this one also, should not have died? Jesus, therefore, again, being indignant within himself, cometh unto the tomb. Now it was a cave, and, a stone, was lying thereon. Jesus, saith, Take ye away the stone! Martha, the sister of the deceased, saith unto him - Lord! by this time, he stinketh, for it is, four days. Jesus saith unto her - Said I not unto thee, that, if thou wouldst believe, thou shouldst see the glory of God? So they took away the stone. And, Jesus, lifted up his eyes on high, and said - Father! I thank thee, thou didst hear me: I, indeed, knew that, always, unto me, thou dost hearken; but, for the sake of the multitude standing around, I spake, - that they might believe that, thou, didst send me forth. And, these things, having said, with a loud voice, he cried out - Lazarus! Come forth! He that was dead came forth, bound feet and hands with bandages, and, his face, with a napkin, was bound about. Jesus saith unto them - Loose him, and let him go. Many therefore from among the Jews, who had come unto Mary, and gazed on what he did, believed on him but, certain from among them, went away unto the Pharisees, and told them what Jesus had done.


And, when they came into Capernaum, they who, the half shekel, were receiving, came near unto Peter, and said, Your teacher, doth he not pay the half shekel? He saith - Yea. And, coming into the house, Jesus anticipated him, saying, How, to thee, doth it seem, Simon? The kings of the earth, of whom receive they dues or tax? from their sons, or from the aliens? And, when he said, From the aliens, Jesus said unto him, Well then, free, are the sons! read more.
But, that we may not cause them to stumble, go unto the sea, and cast in a hook, and, the first fish that cometh up, take, and, opening its mouth, thou shalt find a shekel, - that, take, and give to them for me and thee.


And, because they were hearing these things, he added and spake a parable, because of his being near Jerusalem, and their supposing that, instantly, was the kingdom of God to shine forth. He said, therefore - A certain man, of noble birth, went into a country far away, to receive for himself a kingdom, and to return. And, calling ten servants of his own, he gave unto them ten minas, and said unto them - Do business, till I come. read more.
But, his citizens, hated him, and sent off an embassy after him, saying - We desire not, this, man, to be made king over us! And it came to pass, when he returned, having received the kingdom, that he bade be called unto him these servants, to whom he had given the silver, that he might take note, what business they had done. And the first came near, saying - Lord! thy mina, hath made, ten minas. And he said to him - Well done! good servant. Because, in a very small thing, thou hast been, faithful, have thou authority over, ten cities. And the second came, saying - Thy mina, lord, hath made five minas. And he said, to him also, And, thou, be over five cities. And, the other, came, saying - Lord, lo! thy mina, which I kept lying by in a napkin; For I was afraid of thee, because, a harsh man, thou art, - Thou takest up, what thou layedst not down, and reapest, what thou sowedst not! He saith to him - Out of thy mouth, do I judge thee, O wicked servant! Thou knewest that, I, a harsh man, am, - taking up, what I laid not down, and reaping, what I did not sow; Wherefore, then, didst thou not place my silver upon a money-changer'stable, and, I, when I came, with interest might have exacted it? And, unto the by-standers, he said - Take, from him, the mina, and give unto him that hath, the ten minas; - And they said to him, Lord! he hath ten minas; - I tell you - Unto everyone that hath, shall be given, whereas, from him that hath not, even what he hath, shall be taken away. But, these mine enemies who desired not that I should be made king over them, bring ye here, and slay them outright before me. And, having said these things, he was moving on in front, going up into Jerusalem.


Then, began he to upbraid the cities, in which had been done his noblest mighty works; because they repented not: - Alas for thee, Chorazin! Alas for thee, Bethsaida! Because, if, in Tyre and Zidon, had been done the works of power, which were done in you, of old, in sackcloth and ashes, had they repented. Moreover, I say unto you, For Tyre and Zidon, more tolerable, will it be, in the day of judgment, than for you. read more.
And, thou, Capernaum! Unto heaven, shalt thou be uplifted? Unto hades, thou shall be brought down; because, if, in Sodom, had been done the works of power, which were done in thee, it would, in that case, have remained until this day. Moreover, I say unto you - For the land of Sodom, more tolerable, will it be in a day of judgment, than, for thee. In that season, answered Jesus, and said - I openly give praise unto thee, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, - in that thou hast hid these things from the wise and discerning, and hast revealed them unto babes; Yea, O Father! That, so, it hath become, a delight, before thee. All things, unto me, have been delivered up by my Father; and, no one, fully knoweth the Son, save the rather, neither doth any one fully know, the Father, save, the Son, and he to whomsoever the Son, may be minded, to reveal, him. Come unto me! all ye that toil and are burdened, and, I, will give you rest: Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me, - because, meek, am I and lowly, in heart, and ye shall find rest unto your souls; For, my yoke, is easy, and, my burden, light.


Now, before the feast of the passover, Jesus, knowing that his hour had come, that he should remove out of this world unto the Father, having loved his own that were in the world, unto the end, loved them. And, supper, being in progress, the adversary, having already thrust into the heart of Judas son of Simon Iscariot, that he should deliver him up, - Jesus knowing that, all things, the Father had given unto him, into his hands, and that, from God, he had come, and, unto God, he was going, read more.
rouseth himself out of the supper, and layeth aside his garments, and taking a linen cloth, girded himself. Next, he poureth water into the wash-basin, and began to be washing the feet of the disciples, and to be wiping them with the linen cloth wherewith he was girded. So he cometh unto Simon Peter. He saith unto him - Lord, dost, thou, wash my feet? Jesus answered, and said unto him - What, I, am doing, thou, knowest not, as yet; howbeit, thou shalt got to know, hereafter. Peter saith unto him - In nowise shalt thou, ever, wash my feet. Jesus answered him - If I wash thee not, thou hast no part with me. Simon Peter saith unto him - Lord! not my feet only, but my hands also, and my head. Jesus saith unto him - He that hath bathed himself, hath no need save as to the feetto get washed; but is pure, as a whole. And, ye, are, pure, but not ye, all. For he know the man that was delivering him up; therefore, said he - Not ye all, are pure. When, therefore, he had washed their feet, and taken his garments, and reclined, again said he unto them - Are ye taking note, what I have done unto you? Ye, call me, The Teacher, and, The Lord, - and, well, say, for I am. If then, I, have washed your feet, - I The Lord, and, The Teacher, ye also, ought to wash, one another's, feet; For, an example, have I given you, - that, just as, I, did unto you, ye also, should be doing. Verily, verily, I say unto you - A servant is not greater than his lord, neither one sent forth greater than he that sent him. If, these things, ye know, happy, are ye, if ye be doing them.


Because of this, many from among his disciples, went away back, and, no longer, with him, were walking. Jesus, therefore, said unto the twelve - Are, ye also, wishing to withdraw? Simon Peter answered him - Lord! unto whom, shall we go? Declarations o life age-abiding, thou hast; read more.
And, we, have believed, and come to know, - that, thou, art the Holy One of God. Jesus answered them - Did not, I, make choice, of you, the twelve? And yet, from among you, one, is, an adversary. Now he was speaking of Judas, son of Simon Iscariot: for, the same, was about to deliver him up, - one of the twelve.


On the morrow, the multitude that was standing on the other side of the sea, saw that there was not, another small-boat, there, save one, - and that Jesus entered not, along with his disciples, unto the boat, but that, alone, his disciples departed: - howbeit there came boats out of Tiberias, near the place where they did eat the bread, after the Lord had given thanks: - When, therefore, the multitude saw, that, Jesus, was not there, nor yet his disciples, they themselves, got into the small boats, and came unto Capernaum, seeking Jesus; read more.
and, finding him on the other side of the sea, they said unto him - Rabbi! when, camest thou, hither? Jesus answered them, and said - Verily, verily, I say unto you: Ye seek me, not because ye saw signs, but because ye did eat of the loaves and were filled. Be working, not for the food that perisheth, but for the food that endureth unto life age-abiding, - which, the Son of Man, unto you, will give; for upon, the same, hath the Father, even God, set his seal. They said, therefore, unto him - What are we to do, that we may be working the works of God? Jesus answered, and said unto them - This, is the work of God: that ye believe on him whom, he, hath sent forth. They said, therefore, unto him - What, then, art, thou, doing, by way of sign, that we may see, and believe in thee: what art thou working? Our fathers, did eat, the manna, in the desert, - just as it is written: Bread out of heaven, he gave them to eat. Jesus said unto them - Verily, verily, I say unto you: Not Moses, gave you the bread out of heaven; but, my Father, giveth you the real bread out of heaven. For, the bread of God, is that which is coming down out of heaven, and giving, life, unto the world. They said, therefore, unto him - Sir! Evermore, give us this bread. Jesus said unto them - I, am the bread of life: he that cometh unto me, in nowise shall hunger, and, he that believeth on me, in nowise shall thirst, any more. But I told you - Ye have even seen me, and yet do not believe. All that which the Father is giving me, unto me, will have come, and, him that cometh unto me, in nowise will I cast out, - Because I have come down from heaven, - Not that I should be doing my own will, but the will of him that sent me. And, this, is the will of him that sent me, That, of all that which he hath given me, I should lose nothing, but should raise it up at the last day. For, this, is the will of my Father, That, every one that vieweth the Son, and believeth on him, should have life age-abiding, and, I, should raise him up, at the last day. The Jews, therefore, began to murmur concerning him, because he said - I, am the bread that came down out of heaven; and were saying - Is not, this, Jesus, the son of Joseph, - of whom, we, know the father and the mother! How is it then, that he, now, saith: Out of heaven, have I come down? Jesus answered, and said unto them - Be not murmuring, one with another: No one, can come unto me, except, the Father who sent me, draw him, - and, I, will raise him up, in the last day. It is written in the prophets, - And they shall be, all, the instructed of God: Every one who hath heard of the Father, and learned, cometh unto me. Not that any one hath seen, the Father, save he who is from God, - this one, hath seen the Father. Verily, verily, I say unto you: He that believeth, hath life age-abiding. I am the bread of life: - Your fathers, did eat, in the desert, the manna, - and died: This, is the bread which, out of heaven, cometh down, that one, thereof, may eat, - and not die. I, am the living bread, which, out of heaven, came down: If one eat of this bread, he shall live unto times age-abiding; and, the bread, moreover, which, I, will give, is, my flesh - for the world's life. The Jews, therefore, began to strive one with another, saying - How can this one, unto us, give his flesh to eat? Jesus, therefore, said unto them - Verily, verily, I say unto you - Except ye eat the flesh of the Son of Man, and drink his blood, ye have not life within yourselves. He that feedeth upon my flesh, and drinketh my blood, hath life age-abiding, and, I, will raise him up at the last day; For, my flesh, is, true, food, and, my blood, is, true, drink: He that feedeth upon my flesh, and drinketh my blood, in me, abideth, and, I, in him. Just as the living Father sent me, - and I live by reason of the Father, he also that feedeth upon me, even he, shall live by reason of me. This, is the bread, which, out of heaven, came down: - Not just as your fathers did eat - and died! He that feedeth upon this bread, shall live unto times age-abiding. These things, said he, as, in a synagogue, he was teaching, in Capernaum. Many, of his disciples, therefore, when they heard, said - Hard, is this discourse, - Who can, thereunto, hearken? But Jesus, knowing within himself that his disciples were murmuring concerning this, said unto them - Doth, this, cause, you, to stumble? What then, if ye should view the Son of Man ascending where he was before? -- The spirit, it is, that giveth life, - the flesh, profiteth, nothing: The declarations which, I, have spoken unto you, are, spirit, and, are, life. But there are some from among you, who do not believe. For Jesus knew from the beginning, who they were that did not believe, and who it was would deliver him up; - and he went on to say - For this cause, have I said unto you: No one, can come unto me, except it have been given him, of the Father.


On the morrow, again, was John standing, and, from among his disciples, two; and, looking at Jesus walking, he saith - See! the Lamb of God! and the two disciples hearkened unto him speaking, and they followed Jesus. read more.
But Jesus, turning, and looking at them following, saith unto them - What seek ye? And, they, said unto him - Rabbi! which meaneth, when translated, Teacher, Where abidest thou? He saith unto them - Be coming, and ye shall see. They came, therefore, and saw where he abode, and, with him, they abode that day. It was about the tenth, hour. One of the two that heard from John and followed him, was Andrew, the brother of Simon Peter. The same findeth, first, his own brother Simon, and saith unto him - We have found the Messiah! which is, when translated, Anointed. He led him unto Jesus. Jesus, looking at him, said - Thou, art Simon, the son of John, - thou, shalt be called, Cephas; which is to be translated, Peter. On the morrow, he desired to go forth into Galilee. And Jesus findeth Philip, and saith unto him - Be following me! Now Philip was from Bethsaida, of the city of Andrew and Peter. Philip, findeth, Nathanael, and saith unto him - Him, of whom wrote Moses in the law, and the Prophets, have we found. - Jesus, son of Joseph, him from Nazareth! And Nathanael said unto him - Out of Nazareth, can any good thing come? Philip saith unto him - Come, and see! Jesus saw Nathanael coming unto him, and saith concerning him - See! Truly, an Israelite, in whom is no guile. Nathanael saith unto him - Whence, dost thou, know, me? Jesus answered, and said unto him - Before Philip called thee, - when thou wast under the fig-tree, I saw thee. Nathanael answered him - Rabbi! thou, art, the Son of God: Thou, art, King, of Israel. Jesus answered, and said unto him - Because I said unto thee, I saw thee under the fig-tree, believest thou? A greater thing than these, shalt thou see! And he saith unto him - Verily, verily, I say unto you: Ye shall see heaven - when set open, and, the messengers of God, ascending and descending unto the Son of Man.


And lo! a certain lawyer, arose, putting him to the test, saying - Teacher! by doing what, shall I inherit, life age-abiding? And, he, said unto him - In the law, what is written? how dost thou read? And, he, answering, said - Thou shalt love the Lord thy God, out of all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might, and with all thine intention; and thy neighbour, as thyself? read more.
And he said unto him - Rightly, hast thou answered: This, do, and thou shalt live. But, he, wishing to justify himself, said unto Jesus - And, who is, my, neighbour? And taking up the question , Jesus said - A certain man, was going down from Jerusalem unto Jericho, and, with robbers, fell in, - who, stripping him, and inflicting, wounds, upon him, departed, leaving him, half dead. And, by chance, a certain priest, was coming down by that road, and, seeing him, passed by, on the opposite side. And, in like manner, a Levite also, coming down to the place, and seeing him, passed by, on the opposite side. But, a certain Samaritan, going on his journey, came down to him, and, seeing him, was moved with compassion; and, coming near, bound up his bruises, pouring thereon oil and wine, - and, setting him on his own beast, brought him into an inn, and took care of him. And, on the morrow, throwing out two denaries, he gave them to the inn-keeper, and said - Take care of him, and, whatsoever thou shall further spend, I, when on my way back, will duly pay thee. Which of these three, seemeth unto thee to have become, neighbour, unto him who fell among the robbers? And, he, said - He who dealt mercifully with him. And Jesus said unto him - Be taking thy journey, and, thou, be doing, in like manner.


But how, to you, doth it seem? A man, had two sons: coming unto the first, he said, Son! go thy way, to-day, be working in the vineyard. And, he, answering, said, I, sir! and went not; And, coming unto the second, he spake, in like manner, - and, he, answering, said, I will not: afterwards, smitten with regret, he went. read more.
Which of the two, did the will of the father? They say, The latter. Jesus saith unto them - Verily, I say unto you, the tax-collectors and the harlots, are going before you, into the kingdom of God;


And he was speaking a parable unto them, as to its being needful for them always to pray, and not be faint-hearted; saying - A certain judge, there was in a certain city, - having, for God, no reverence, and, for man, no respect. And, a widow, there was, in that city; and she kept coming unto him, saying - Vindicate me from mine adversary! read more.
And he was unwilling for a time; but, after these things, he said within himself - Although, neither God, I reverence, nor man, I respect, Yet, if only because this widow annoyeth me, I will vindicate her, - lest, persistently coming, she wholly wear me out. And the Lord said - Hear ye what, the unrighteous judge saith; - And shall, God, in any wise not execute the vindication of his chosen ones, who are crying out to him day and night, although he beareth long with regard to them? I tell you - He will execute their vindication, quickly! nevertheless, though, the Son of Man, do come, will he, after all, find the faith on the earth? And he spake, even unto certain who were confident in themselves that they were righteous, and were despising the rest, this parable: - Two men, went up into the temple to pray, one, a Pharisee, and, the other, a tax-collector. The Pharisee, taking his stand, these things unto himself was praying: O God! I thank thee, that I am not like the rest of men, - extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or, even as this tax-collector; I fast twice in the week, I give a tenth of whatsoever things I gain! But, the tax-collector, afar off, standing, - would not so much as lift up, his eyes, unto heaven, but kept smiting his own breast saying - O God! be propitiated unto me, the sinner! I tell you - This one went down justified, unto his house, rather than that one; because, every one who exalteth himself, shall be abased, but, he that abaseth himself, shall be exalted?


And, as Jesus, was passing aside from thence, there followed him, two blind men, crying aloud and saying, - Have mercy on us, O Son of David! And, when he entered the house, the blind men came unto him, - and Jesus saith unto them, Believe ye, that I can, do this? They say unto him, Yea, Lord! Then touched he their eyes, saying, According to your faith, be it done unto you. read more.
And their eyes were opened. And Jesus, sternly charged them, saying, Mind! let no one know! They, however, going forth, made him known throughout the whole of that land. And, as, they, were going forth, lo! there was brought to him, a dumb man, demonized. And, the demon being cast out, the dumb man spoke; and the multitudes marvelled, saying, - Never, was it seen thus, in Israel. But, the Pharisees, beg to say, In the ruler of the demons, is he casting out the demons.


And he said unto his disciples: - It is, impossible, that occasions of stumbling should not come, notwithstanding, alas! for him through whom they do come: It profiteth him, if, a mill-stone, is hung about his neck, and he is cast into the sea, than that he cause, one, of these little ones, to stumble. Be taking heed to yourselves, - If thy brother sin, rebuke him, and, if he repent, forgive him; read more.
Even if, seven times a day, he sin against thee, and, seven times, turn to thee, saying, I repent, thou shalt forgive him. And the apostles said unto the Lord - Bestow on us faith! And the Lord said - If ye have faith like a grain of mustard-seed, ye should be saying unto thismulberry-tree - Be uprooted! and be planted in the sea, - and it should obey you. But, who from among you, having, a servant, plowing or keeping sheep, when he hath come in out of the field, will say to him - Straightway, come, and recline; - on the contrary, will not say to him - Make somewhat ready, that I may dine, - and, girding thyself, be ministering unto me, until I have eaten and drunk; and, after these things, thou, shalt eat and drink? Doth he offer thanks unto the servant, because he hath done the things enjoined? Thus, ye also, when ye have done all the things enjoined upon you, say - Unprofitable servants, are we, - What we were bound to do, we have done!


And his parents used to journey yearly into Jerusalem, at the feast of the passover. And, when he became twelve years, and they went up, according to the custom of the feast, and completed the days, and then were returning, the boy Jesus remained behind in Jerusalem, - and his parents noticed it not; read more.
but, supposing him to be in the company, went a day's journey, and then began to seek for him among their kinsfolk and acquaintances, and, not finding him, returned unto Jerusalem, seeking him. And it came to pass, that, after three days, they found him in the temple, sitting amidst the teachers, - both hearkening unto them, and questioning them. Now all who heard him were beside themselves, because of his understanding and his answers. And, when they behold him, they were astounded, and his mother said unto him - Child! why, hast thou dealt with us, thus? Lo! thy father and I, in anguish, were seeking thee. And he said unto them - Why was it that ye were seeking me? Perceived ye not, that, in the courts of my Father, I must needs be? And, they, understood not the thing which he spake to them. And he went down with them, and came to Nazareth, and was submitting himself unto them. And, his mother, was closely observing all these things in her heart. And, Jesus, went on advancing in wisdom, and in stature, and in favour with God and men.


Then, will the kingdom of the heavens become like unto, ten virgins, who, taking their torches, went forth to meet the bridegroom. Now, five of them, were foolish, and, five, prudent. For, the foolish - though they took, their torches, took not with them, oil: read more.
But, the prudent, took oil in their vessels, with their torches. Now, the bridegroom, delaying, they all became drowsy, and were sleeping. And, at midnight, an outcry hath been made - Lo! the bridegroom! Be going forth to meet him! Then, arose all those virgins, and trimmed their torches. And, the foolish, unto the prudent, said - Give us of your oil, because, our torches, are going out. But the prudent, answered, saying - Lest once, by any means, there be not enough for us and you, be going rather unto them that sell, and buy for yourselves But, as they were going away to buy, the bridegroom came; and, they who were ready, went in with him, into the marriage-feast, and, the door was locked. But, afterwards, came the other virgins also, saying - Lord! Lord! open unto us! And, he, answering, said - Verily, I say unto you, I know you not. Be watching, therefore, because ye know, neither the day nor the hour. For it is, just as a man, who, going from home, called his own servants, and delivered up to them his substance; And, to one, indeed, gave he five talents, and, to another, two, and, to another, one, - to each according to his particular ability, and went from home. Straightway, he who, the five talents, had received, went and traded with them, and gained other five: Likewise, he of the two, gained other two: But, he who the one had received, went away, and digged up ground, and hid the silver of his lord. And, after a long time, cometh the lord of those servants, and reckoneth with them. And he who the five talents had received, coming forward, brought other five talents, saying, - Lord! five talents, to me, thou didst deliver up: See! other five talents, I gained. His lord said unto him - Well-done! good and faithful servant, - Over a few things wast thou faithful, over many things, will I appoint thee: Enter into the joy of thy lord. He also of the two talents, coming forward, said - Lord! two talents, to me, didst thou deliver up: See! other two talents, I gained. His lord said unto him - Well-done! good and faithful servant, - Over a few things, wast thou faithful, over many things, will I appoint thee: Enter into the joy of thy lord. But he also who, the one talent, had received, coming forward, said - Lord I knew thee, that thou art a, hard, man, reaping, where thou hast not sown, - and gathering, whence thou hast not winnowed; And, overcome with fear, I went away, and hid thy talent in the ground: See! thou hast what is thine! And his lord, answering, said unto him - O wicked servant, and cowardly, knewest thou that I reap, where I have not sown, and gather, whence I have not winnowed? It was binding on thee, therefore, to cast my silver into the money-changers, - and, I, when I, came, might have obtained what was mine, with interest. Therefore take away, from him, the talent, and give unto him that hath the ten talents; For, to every one that hath, shall be given, and he shall be made to abound; but, from him that hath not, even what he hath, shall be taken away from him: And, the unprofitable servant, cast ye forth into the darkness, outside: There, shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth.


Now the birth, of Jesus Christ, was, thus: His mother Mary having been betrothed to Joseph, - before they came together, she was found with child by the Holy Spirit. Moreover, Joseph her husband, being, righteous, and yet unwilling to expose her, - intended, privately, to divorce her. But, when, these things, he had pondered, lo! a messenger of the Lord, by dream, appeared to him, saying, - Joseph, son of David! do not fear to take unto thee Mary thy wife, for, that which, in her, hath been begotten, is of the , Holy, Spirit. read more.
Moreover she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name Jesus, - for, he, will save his people from their sins. But, all this, hath come to pass, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the Lord, through the prophet, saying: Lo! a Virgin, shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, - and they shall call his name Emmanuel; which is, being translated, God with us. And Joseph, awaking, from his sleep, did as the messenger of the Lord directed him, - and took unto him his wife; and knew her not, until she had brought forth a son, - and he called his name Jesus.


For the kingdom of the heavens, is like, a man, a householder, - who went forth with the morning, to hire labourers into his vineyard; and, when he had agreed with the labourers for a denary the day, he sent them into his vineyard. And, going forth about the third hour, he saw others, standing in the market-place, unemployed; read more.
and, to them, he said - ye also, go your way into the vineyard, and, whatsoever may be right, I will give you; and, they, departed. And, again, going forth about the sixth and ninth hour, he did likewise. And, about the eleventh, going forth, he found others, standing, and saith unto them - Why, here, stand ye, all the day, unemployed? They say unto him - Because, no one, hath hired, us. He saith unto them - Ye also, go your way into the vineyard. And, when evening came, the master of the vineyard saith unto his steward - Call the labourers, and pay the hire, - beginning from the last, unto the first. And they of the eleventh hour, coming, received severally a denary. And, when the first came, they supposed that, more, they should receive, - and, they also, received severally a denary. And, having received it, they began to murmur against the householder, saying - These last, one hour, wrought, and thou hast made them, equal unto us, who have borne the burden of the day, and the scorching heat. And, he, answering, unto one of them, said, - Friend! I wrong thee not: Was it not, for a denary, thou didst agree with me? Take thine own, and go thy way; but I please, unto this last, to give, as also to thee: Is it not allowed me to do, what I please, with my own? or is, thine eye, evil, because I good? Thus, shall be - The last first, and the first last.


And it came to pass, when he entered into the house of one of the rulers of the Pharisees, on a Sabbath, to eat bread, that, they, were narrowly watching him. And lo! there was, a certain man, who had the dropsy, before him. And Jesus, answering, spake unto the Lawyers and Pharisees, saying - Is it allowed, on the Sabbath, to cure, or not? But, they, held their peace. read more.
And taking hold of him he healed and dismissed him, - and, unto them, said - Which of you, shall have a son or an ox that, into a pit, shall fall, and will not straightway pull him up, on the day of rest? And they could not return an answer unto these things. And he went on to speak, unto the invited, a parable, - observing how, the first couches, they were choosing; saying unto them - Whensoever thou hast been invited by anyone unto a marriage feast, do not recline on the first couch; lest once, a more honourable than thou, have been invited by him, and he that invited both thee and him should come, and say unto thee - Give, unto this one, place! and, then, thou shouldst begin, with shame, the last place, to occupy. But, whensoever thou hast been invited, pass on and fall back into the last place, that, whensoever he that hath invited thee shall come, he may say unto thee - Friend! come close up, higher. Then, shalt thou have honour before all who are reclining together with thee. Because, everyone who exalteth himself, shall be abased; and, he that abaseth himself, shall be exalted? Moreover he went on to say, unto him also who had invited him, - Whensoever thou mayest be making a dinner or a supper, do not call thy friends, or thy brothers, or thy kinsfolk, or rich neighbours, - lest once, they also, invite thee in return, and it become a recompense unto thee. But, whensoever, an entertainment, thou mayest be making, invite the destitute, the tried, the lame, the blind; and, happy, shalt thou be, that they have not wherewith to recompense thee, for it shall be recompensed unto thee, in the resurrection of the righteous. And one of those reclining together, hearing these things, said unto him - Happy, whoever shall eat bread in the kingdom of God! But, he, said unto him - A certain man, was making a great supper, and invited many; and he sent out his servant, at the hour of the supper, to say unto the invited - Be coming! because, even now, is it, ready. And they all began, one after another to excuse themselves. The first, said unto him - A field, have I bought, and have need to go out and see it: I request thee, hold me excused. And, another, said - Five yoke of oxen, have I bought, and am going my way to prove them; I request thee, hold me excused. And, another, said - A wife, have I married, and, for this cause, I cannot come! And, going near, the servant reported unto his lord these things. Then, provoked to anger, the master of the house said unto his servant - Go out quickly, into the broadways and streets of the city, - and, the destitute, and tried, and blind, and lame, bring thou in here. And the servant said - Lord! what thou didst order, hath been done; and, yet, there is, room. And the lord said unto the servant - Go out among the highways and fences, and compel them to come in; that my house may be filled. For, I say unto you - Not one of those men who had been invited, shall taste of my supper.


And, after these things, the Lord appointed seventy two others, and sent them forth, two and two before his face, into every city and place whither, he himself, was about to come. And he was saying unto them - The harvest, indeed, is, great, but, the labourers, few; beg ye, therefore, of the Lord of the harvest, that he would thrust forth, labourers, into his harvest. Withdraw! Lo! I send you forth as lambs amid wolves. read more.
Be not carrying purse, or satchel, or sandals, and, no one along the road, salute ye; And, into whatsoever house ye enter, First, say, Peace to this house! And, if the son of peace be, there, your peace, shall rest upon it; but, otherwise, at least, unto you, shall it return. And, in the self-same house, abide ye, eating and drinking such things as they have; for, worthy, is the labourer, of his hire: be not removing from house to house. And, into whatsoever city ye shall enter, and they bid you welcome, be eating such things as are set before you; And be curing the sick that are, therein, and be saying unto them - The kingdom of God hath drawn nigh upon you. But, into whatsoever city ye shall enter, and they do not welcome you, going forth into the broadways thereof, say ye: Even the dust that cleaveth unto us, out of your city, unto our feet, do we wipe off against you; nevertheless, of this, be taking notice - The kingdom of God hath drawn near. I tell you, for them of Sodom, in that day, more tolerable, will it be, than for that city. Alas for thee, Chorazin! Alas for thee, Bethsaida! Because, if, in Tyre and Zidon, had been done the works of power which have been down in you, of old, in sackcloth and ashes sitting, they would have repented. Moreover, for Tyre and Zidon, more tolerable, will it be, in the judgment, than, for you. And, thou, Capernaum, - Unto heaven, shalt thou be uplifted? -- Unto hades, thou shalt be brought down! He that hearkeneth unto you, unto me, doth hearken, and, he that setteth you aside, doth set, me, aside; and, he that setteth, me, aside, doth set aside, him that sent me.


And it came to pass thereafter, that he journeyed unto a city called Nain, and there were journeying with him, his disciples and a great multitude. Now, as he drew near unto the gate of the city, then lo! there was being brought forth, one dead, the only-begotten son of his mother, - and, she, was a widow; and, a considerable multitude of the city, was with her. And, beholding her, the Lord, was moved with compassion over her, and said to her - Be not weeping! read more.
And, going forward, he touched the coffin, and the bearers stood still; and he said - Young man! to thee, I say, Arise! And the dead man sat up, and began to speak; and he gave him to his mother. And fear seized them, all, and they began to glorify God, saying - A great prophet, hath been raised up amongst us! and - God hath visited his people! And this report went forth throughout the whole of Judaea, and all the surrounding country.


I came to be, in Spirit, in the Lord's Day, and heard, behind me, a loud voice, as of a trumpet, saying - What thou seest, write in a scroll, and send unto the Seven Assemblies, - unto Ephesus, and unto Smyrna, and unto Pergamum, - and unto Thyatira, and unto Sardis, and unto Philadelphia, - and unto Laodicea. And I turned round, to see the Voice which was speaking with me, and, having turned, I saw Seven Lamps of gold; read more.
and, in the midst of the lamps, One like unto a Son of Man: - clothed with a robe, reaching to the feet, and girt about at the breasts with a girdle of gold, And his head and hair, white, like white wool - like snow, and, his eyes, like a flame of fire, And, his feet, like unto glowing copper, as if in a furnace refined, and, his voice, like a sound of many waters, And, having in his right hand, seven stars, and, out of his mouth, a sharp, two-edged sword, going forth; and, his whole appearance, as when, the sun, shineth in its strength. And, when I saw him, I fell at his feet as dead, and he laid his right hand upon me, saying - Do not fear! I, am the First, and the Last, and the Living One, - and I became dead; - and lo! living, am I, unto the ages of ages, and have the keys of death and of hades.


Now he must needs pass through Samaria. He cometh, therefore, unto a city of Samaria, called Sychar, near the parcel of ground which Jacob gave unto Joseph his son. Now Jacob's fountain was there. Jesus, therefore, having become toil-worn with the journey, was sitting thus, upon the fountain. It was about the sixth hour. read more.
There cometh a woman of Samaria to draw water. Jesus saith unto her - Give me to drink! for, his disciples, had gone away into the city, that, food, they might buy. The Samaritan woman, therefore, saith unto him - How dost, thou, being, a Jew, ask to drink, of me, who am, a Samaritan woman? for, Jews, have no dealings with Samaritans. Jesus answered, and said unto her - If thou hadst known the free gift of God, and who it is that is saying unto thee, Give me to drink, thou, wouldst have asked him, and he would have given thee living water. She saith unto him - Sir! not even a bucket, hast thou, - and, the well, is, deep: - Whence, then, hast thou the living water? Art, thou, greater than, our father Jacob, who gave us the well, - and, himself, out of it drank, and his sons, and his flocks? Jesus answered, and said unto her - Whosoever drinketh of this water, will thirst, again; But, whosoever shall drink of the water which, I, will give him, in nowise shall thirst, unto times age-abiding, - but, the water which I will give him, shall become, within him, a fountain of water, springing up unto life age-abiding. The woman saith unto him - Sir! give me this water, that I thirst not, neither be coming hither to draw. He saith unto her - Go, call thy husband, and come hither! The woman answered, and said unto him- I have no husband. Jesus saith unto her - Well, saidst thou, A husband, I have not; for, five husbands, thou hast had, - and, now, he whom thou hast, is not thy, husband: This true thing, hast thou spoken. The woman saith unto him - Sir! I perceive that, a prophet, art, thou: - Our fathers, in this mountain, worshipped; and, ye, say, that, in Jerusalem, is the place, where, to worship, it behoveth. Jesus saith unto her - Believe me, woman! There cometh an hour, when, neither in this mountain, nor yet in Jerusalem, shall ye worship the Father. Ye, worship, that which ye know not; We, worship, that which we know; because, salvation, is, of the Jews. But there cometh an hour, and, now, is, - when, the real worshippers, shall worship the Father in spirit and truth; for, even the Father, is seeking, such as these, as his worshippers. God is, spirit; and, they that worship him, in spirit and truth, must needs worship. The woman saith unto him - I know that, Messiah, cometh, who is called Christ, - Whensoever, he, shall come, he will tell us, everything. Jesus saith unto her - I, that speak unto thee, am he. And, hereupon, came his disciples, and they began to marvel, that, with a woman, he was talking. No one, however, said - What seekest thou? or - Why talkest thou with her? The woman, therefore, left her water-vessel, and went away into the city, and saith unto the men - Come! see a man, that told me all things that ever I did: Can, this, be, the Christ? They came forth out of the city, and were coming unto him. In the meantime, the disciples were requesting him, saying - Rabbi! eat. But, he, said unto them - I, have, food, to eat, of which, ye, know not. The disciples, therefore, began to say, one to another - Hath anyone brought him, to eat? Jesus saith unto them - My food, is, that I should do the will of him that sent me, and complete, his work. Are, ye, not saying - Yet, a fourmonth, it is, and, the harvest, cometh? Lo! I say unto you - Lift up your eyes, and gaze at the fields, - that, white, are they unto, harvest. Already, he that reapeth, receiveth, a reward, and gathereth fruit unto life age-abiding; that, he that soweth, together may rejoice, with him that reapeth. For, herein, doth the saying, hold good, - One, is the sower, and, another, is the reaper. I, sent you forth, to be reaping that whereon, ye, have not toiled: Others, have toiled, and, ye, into their toil, have entered. And, out of that city, many, believed on him - of the Samaritans, - by reason of the word of the woman in bearing witness - He told me all things that ever I did. When, therefore, the Samaritans came unto him, they went on to request him to abide with them; and he abode there two days. And, many more, believed by reason of his discourse; and, unto the woman, began to say - No longer, by reason of thy talk, do we believe; for, we ourselves, have heard, and know that, This One, is, in truth, the Saviour of the world.


Now, Pilate, hearing that , questioned whether the man was, a Galilaean. And, getting to know that he was of the jurisdiction of Herod, he sent him back unto Herod, he also, being in Jerusalem in these days. And, Herod, seeing Jesus, rejoiced exceedingly; for he had been, a considerable number of times, wishing to see him, - because he had heard concerning him, and was hoping, some sign, to behold, by him, brought to pass. read more.
And he went on to question him in a good many words; but, he, answered him, nothing. And the High-priests and the Scribes stood vehemently accusing him. And Herod with his soldiery, having set him at nought, and mocked him, threw about him a gorgeous robe, and sent him back unto Pilate. And they became friends - both Herod and Pilate - on the self-same day, one with another; for they had previously been at enmity between themselves.


Jesus, therefore, six days before the passover, came unto Bethany, where Lazarus was, whom Jesus had raised from among the dead. So they made for him a supper, there; and, Martha, was ministering, but, Lazarus, was one of them who were reclining with him. Mary, therefore, taking a pound of pure nard perfume, very precious, anointed the feet of Jesus, and wiped, with her hair, his feet; and, the house, was filled with the fragrance of the perfume. read more.
ButJudas Iscariot, one of his disciples, he that was about to deliver him up, saith - Why was, this perfume, not sold for three hundred denaries, and given unto the destitute? Howbeit he said this, not that, for the destitute, he cared, but because, a thief, he was, and holding, the bag, used to carry away, what was cast therein. Jesus, therefore, said - Let her alone, that, for the day of my burial, she may observe it; For, the destitute, always, have ye with you, whereas, me, not always, have ye. The great multitude of the Jews, therefore, got to know that he was, there, and came, not on account of Jesus only, but that, Lazarus also, they might see, whom he had raised from among the dead.


And, when eight days were fulfilled for circumcising him, then was his name called, Jesus, - which it was called by the messenger, before he was conceived in the womb. And, when the days of their purification, according to the law of Moses, were fulfilled, they took him up into Jerusalem, to present him unto the Lord, - according as it is written in the law of the Lord - Every male that is a firstborn, Holy unto the Lord, shall be called, read more.
and to give a sacrifice, according to that which is said in the law of the Lord - A pair of turtle-doves, or two young pigeons. And lo! there was, a man, in Jerusalem, whose name, was Symeon; and, this man, was righteous and devout, awaiting the consolation of Israel, and Holy Spirit was upon him; and it had been intimated to him by the Holy Spirit, that he should not see death, before he had seen the Christ of the Lord. And he came, in the Spirit, into the temple; and, when the parents brought in the child Jesus, that they might do according to that which was customary by the law concerning it, even he, welcomed it into his arms, and blessed God, and said - Now, dost thou dismiss thy servant, O Sovereign, according to thy declaration - in peace; Because mine eyes have seen thy salvation, Which thou hast prepared in face of all the peoples: A light for the unveiling of nations, and the glory of thy people Israel. And his father and mother were marvelling over the things which were being spoken concerning him. And Symeon blessed them, and said unto Mary his mother - Lo! this one, is being set for the falling and rising of many in Israel, and for a sign to be spoken against; And, thou! through thy very soul, shall pass a sword, that, reasonings, may be revealed, out of many hearts. And there was one Anna, a prophetess, daughter of Phanuel, of the tribe of Asher; - the same, advanced in many days; having lived with a husband seven years from her virginity, and, she, had been a widow for as long as eighty-four years, - who left not the temple, with fastings and supplications, rendering divine service night and day; - and, in that very hour, coming near, she began to give thanks unto God, and to speak concerning him unto all who were waiting for the redemption of Jerusalem.


And a certain one of the Pharisees was requesting him, that he would eat with him; and, entering into the house of the Pharisee, he reclined. And, 1o! a woman, who indeed was in the city a sinner; and, when she found out that he was reclining in the house of the Pharisee, providing an alabaster-jar of perfume, and standing behind, near his feet, weeping, with the tears, began she to be wetting his feet, and, with the hair of her head, was wiping off the tears , and was tenderly kissing his feet, and anointing them with the perfume. read more.
But the Pharisee who had invited him, seeing it, spake within himself, saying, This one, if he were the prophet, would have been taking note, who and of what sort, is the woman, who is even touching him, that she is, a sinner. And, making answer, Jesus said unto him - Simon! I have, unto thee, something to say. He, then - Teacher, speak! - saith he. Two debtors, there were, to a certain creditor, - the one, owed five hundred denaries, and, the other, fifty. they not having wherewith to pay, he forgave, both. Which of them, therefore, will love him, more? Making answer, Simon said - I suppose, that he to whom, the more, he forgave. And, he, said unto him - Rightly, hast thou judged. And, turning towards the woman, unto Simon, he said - Seest thou this woman? I entered into thy house: water to me, on my feet, thou didst not give, - but, she, with her tears, hath wetted my feet, and, with her hair, wiped off the tears . A kiss, to me, thou didst not give, - but, she, from the time I came in, hath not ceased tenderly kissing my feet. With oil, my head, thou didst not anoint, - but, she, with perfume, hath anointed, my feet. For which cause, I say unto thee - Her many sins, have been forgiven, because she hath loved, much: but, he to whom little is forgiven, little, loveth. And he said unto her - Thy sins have been forgiven. And they who were reclining together, began to be saying within themselves - Who is, this, that, even forgiveth sins? But he said unto the woman - Thy faith, hath saved thee, - Go thy way into peace.


There was however, a man from among the Pharisees, Nicodemus, his name, - ruler of the Jews. The same, came unto him, by night, and said unto him - Rabbi! we know that, from God, thou hast come, a teacher; for, no one, can be doing, these signs, which, thou, art doing, except, God, be with him. Jesus answered, and said unto him - Verily, verily, I say unto thee: Except one be born from above, he cannot see the kingdom of God. read more.
Nicodemus saith unto him - How, can a man be born, when he is, old? Can he, into the womb of his mother, a second time, enter, and be born? Jesus answered - Verily, verily, I say unto thee: Except one be born of water and spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. That which hath been born of the flesh, is, flesh, and, that which hath been born of the spirit, is, spirit. Do not marvel, that I said unto thee: Ye must needs be born from above. The spirit, where it pleaseth, doth breathe, and, the sound thereof, thou hearest; but knowest not, whence it cometh and whither it goeth: Thus, is every one who hath been born of the spirit. Nicodemus answered, and said unto him - How, can these things, come about? Jesus answered, and said unto him - Art, thou, the teacher of Israel, and, these things, knowest not? Verily, verily, I say unto thee: What we know, we speak, and, of what we have seen, we bear witness, and, our witness, ye receive not. If, the earthly things, I told you, and ye believe not, How, if I should tell you the heavenly things, will ye believe? And, no one, hath ascended into heaven, save he that, out of heaven, descended, - The Son of Man. And, just as, Moses, lifted up the serpent in the desert, so, must, the Son of Man, be lifted up, - That, whosoever believeth in him, may have life age-abiding. For God, so loved, the world, that, his Only Begotten Son, he gave, - that, whosoever believeth on him, might not perish, but have life age-abiding. For God, sent not, his Son into the world, that he might judge the world, but, that the world might be saved through him. He that believeth on him, is not to be judged: he that believeth not, already, hath been judged, - because he hath not believed on the name of the Only Begotten Son of God. And, this, is the judgment: That, the light, hath come into the world, - and men loved, rather the darkness than the light, for, wicked, were their, works. For, whosoever doth practise corrupt things, hateth the light, and cometh not unto the light, lest his works should be reproved; But, he that doeth the truth, cometh unto the light, that his works may be, made manifest, that, in God, have they been wrought.


And Jesus was going round all the cities and the villages, teaching in their synagogues, and proclaiming the glad-message of the kingdom, - and curing every disease, and every infirmity. But, seeing the multitudes, he was moved with compassion concerning them, because they were torn and thrown down, like sheep hating no shepherd. Then, saith he unto his disciples, The harvest, indeed, is great, but, the labourers, few; read more.
Beg ye, therefore, of the Lord of the harvest, - That he would thrust forth labourers, into his harvest.


And Mary, arising, in these days, journeyed into the hill country with haste, into a city of Judah, - and entered into the house of Zachariah, and saluted Elizabeth. And it came to pass that, as Elizabeth heard the salutation of Mary, the babe leapt in her womb, and Elizabeth was filled with Holy Spirit, - read more.
and lifted up her voice with loud exclamation, and said - Blessed, art thou among women, and, blessed, is the fruit of thy womb; And, whence, to me is, this, That the mother of my Lord should come, unto me? For lo! as the sound of thy salutation came into mine ears, the babe in my womb, leapt in exultation. And, happy, is she who hath believed, that there shall be a perfecting of the things which have been spoken to her from the Lord! And Mary said - My soul doth magnify the Lord, And my spirit hath exulted upon God my saviour; Because he hath looked upon the humbling of his handmaid; for lo! from the present time, all the generations, will pronounce me happy. Because he that is mighty hath done for me great things, and, holy, is his name; And his mercy is unto generations and generations, to them who revere him; He hath wrought strength with his arm, He hath scattered men arrogant in the intention of their heart; He hath deposed potentates from thrones, and uplifted the lowly; The hungry, hath he filled with good things, and, the wealthy, hath he sent empty away; He hath laid hold of Israel his servant, to be mindful of mercies: According as he spake unto our fathers, - To Abraham, and to his seed, - Unto times age-abiding. And Mary abode with her about three months, and returned unto her house.


Now, when they had retired, lo! a messenger of the Lord, appeareth by dream unto Joseph, saying, Arise, take unto thee the child and its mother, and flee into Egypt, and be there, until I tell thee, - for Herod is about to seek the child, to destroy it. And, he, arising, took unto him the child and its mother, by night, and retired into Egypt; and was there, until the death of Herod, - that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the Lord through the prophet, saying, Out of Egypt, called I my son. read more.
Then Herod, seeing that he had been mocked by the wise men, was exceedingly enraged, - and sent and slew all the male children that were in Bethlehem, and in all its bounds, from two years old and under, according to the time which he had ascertained from the wise men. Then was fulfilled, that which was spoken through Jeremiah the prophet, saying: A voice, in Ramah, was heard, weeping and great mourning, - Rachel weeping for her children, and would not be comforted, - because they are not. But, when Herod was, dead, lo! a messenger of the Lord, appeareth by dream unto Joseph in Egypt; saying - Arise! and take unto thee the child and its mother, and be journeying into the land of Israel, - for they are dead, who were seeking the life of the child. And, he, arising, took unto him the child and its mother, and entered into the land of Israel. Hearing, however, that, Archelaus, was reigning over Judaea instead of his father Herod, he was afraid, thither, to go, - and so, being instructed by dream, he retired into the parts of Galilee; and came and fixed his dwelling in a city called Nazareth, - that it might be fulfilled which was spoken through the prophets - A Nazarene, shall he be called.


And they come into Bethsaida. And they bring unto him one blind, and beseech him that him, he would touch. And, laying hold of the hand of the blind man, he brought him forth outside the village, and, spitting into his eyes, laying his hands upon him, he was asking him - Anything, seest thou? and, looking up, he was saying - I see men, because, like trees, I behold them walking read more.
Then again, put he his hands upon his eyes, and he saw clearly, and was restored, and was seeing distinctly, in broad splendour, all things together. And he sent him away unto his house, saying - Not even into the village, mayest thou enter.


Originally, was, the Word, and, the Word, was, with God; and, the Word, was, God. The same, was originally, with God. All things, through him, came into existence, and, without him, came into existence, not even one thing: that which hath come into existence, read more.
in him, was, life, and, the life, was, the light of men. - And, the light, in the darkness, shineth; and, the darkness, thereof, laid not hold. There arose a man, sent from God, whose name was, John: The same, came, for a witness, That he might bear witness, concerning the light, that, all, might believe, through him. He, was not the light, - but, that he might bear witness concerning the light, It, was - The real light that enlighteneth every man - Coming into the world. In the world, he was, and, the world, through him, came into existence, and, the world, knew him not. Into his own possessions, he came, and, his own people, received him not home. But, as many as did receive him, he gave, unto them, authority, children of God, to become, - unto them who were believing on his name: Who - not of bloods, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but - of God, were born. And, the Word, became, flesh, and pitched his tent among us, and we gazed upon his glory, - a glory, as an Only-begotten from his Father. Full of favour and truth. (John beareth witness concerning him, and hath cried aloud, saying - the same, was he that said - He who, after me, was coming, before me, hath advanced; because, my Chief, was he.) Because, out of his fulness, we all, received, even favour over against favour. Because, the law, through Moses, was given, favour and truth, through Jesus Christ, came into existence. No one, hath seen, God, at any time: An Only Begotten God, The One existing within the bosom of the Father, He, hath interpreted him .


And Mary said - My soul doth magnify the Lord, And my spirit hath exulted upon God my saviour; Because he hath looked upon the humbling of his handmaid; for lo! from the present time, all the generations, will pronounce me happy. read more.
Because he that is mighty hath done for me great things, and, holy, is his name; And his mercy is unto generations and generations, to them who revere him; He hath wrought strength with his arm, He hath scattered men arrogant in the intention of their heart; He hath deposed potentates from thrones, and uplifted the lowly; The hungry, hath he filled with good things, and, the wealthy, hath he sent empty away; He hath laid hold of Israel his servant, to be mindful of mercies: According as he spake unto our fathers, - To Abraham, and to his seed, - Unto times age-abiding.


And, on the third day, a marriage, took place, in Cana, of Galilee; and the mother of Jesus was there, - and Jesus also was invited, with his disciples, unto the marriage. And, wine falling short, the mother of Jesus saith unto him - Wine, have they none! read more.
And Jesus saith unto her - What part can I take with thee, O woman? Not yet, hath come, mine hour. His mother saith unto them who are ministering - Whatsoever he may say to you, do! Now there were there, six stone water-vessels, placed, according to the purification of the Jews; holding each, two or three measures. Jesus saith unto them - Fill the vessels with water. And they filled them up to the brim. And he saith unto them - Draw out now, and be bearing unto the master of the feast. And they bare. And, when the master of the feast had tasted the water, now made, wine, and knew not whence it was, - though, they who were ministering, knew, even they who had drawn out the water, the master accosteth the bridegroom, and saith unto him - Every man, first the good wine, setteth out; and, when they had been well-supplied, the inferior: - Thou, hast kept the good wine until, even now. This, beginning of his signs, did Jesus, in Cana of Galilee, and manifested his glory; and his disciples believed on him. After this, he came down into Capernaum, - he, and his mother and brethren, and his disciples; and, there, they abode, not many days.


Now, in the sixth month, was the messenger Gabriel sent forth from God, into a city of Galilee, the name of which was Nazareth, - unto a virgin, betrothed to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David; and, the name of the virgin, was, Mary; and entering in unto her, he said - Joy to thee, favoured one! The Lord, be with thee! read more.
And, she, at the word, was greatly troubled, and began to deliberate, of what kind, this salutation, might be. And the messenger said unto her - Do not fear, Mary, for thou hast found favour with God, - And 1o! thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call his name, Jesus: the same, shall be great, and, Son of the Most High, shall be called, and the Lord God, will give unto him, the throne of David his father, - And he shall reign over the house of Jacob, unto the ages, and, of his kingdom, there shall be, no end. But Mary said unto the messenger - How, shall this thing be, seeing that, a man, I know not? And answering, the messenger said unto her - The Holy Spirit, shall come upon thee, and, the power of the Most High, shall overshadow thee; wherefore, even that which is to be born, Holy, shall be called, Son of God. And lo! Elizabeth thy kinswoman, even she, hath conceived a son in, her old-age; - and, this month, is, the sixth, to her, the so-called barren one; Because no declaration from God, shall be void of power. And Mary said - Lo! the handmaid of the Lord! Might it come to pass unto me, according to thy declaration. And the messenger departed from her.


And, having entered, he was passing through Jericho; and lo! a man, by name called Zacchaeus, and, he, was a chief tax-collector, and hewas rich. And he was seeking to see Jesus, what sort of man he was, and could not for the multitude, because, in stature, he was, small. read more.
And, running forward unto the front, he got up a sycamore-tree, that he might see him; for, by that way, was he about to pass. And, as he came up to the place, looking up, Jesus said unto him - Zacchaeus! make haste, and come down; For, to-day, in thy house, I must needs abide. And he made haste, and came down, and received him joyfully. And all, when they beheld, began to murmur, saying - With a sinful man, hath he gone in to lodge! But, taking his stand, Zacchaeus said unto the Lord - Lo! the half of my possessions, Lord, unto the destitute, I give; and, if, from anyone, I have taken aught by false accusation, I give back fourfold. And Jesus said unto him - This day, salvation, unto this house, hath come, - for that, he too, is, a son of Abraham; For the Son of Man came, to seek and to save what was lost.


And it came to pass, when he was in a certain place praying, as he ceased, one of his disciples said unto him - Lord! teach us to pray, as, John also, taught his disciples. And he said unto them - Whensoever ye are praying, say - Father! Hallowed be thy name, Come may thy kingdom, Our needful bread, be giving us, day by day; read more.
And forgive us our sins, for, even we ourselves, forgive every one indebted to us; And bring us not into temptation. And he said unto them - Who from among you, shall have a friend, and shall go unto him at midnight, and say unto him - Friend! supply me with three loaves, forasmuch as, a friend of mine, hath come off a journey unto me, and I have not what I can set before him; and, he, from within, shall answer, and say - Be not disturbing me, - already, the door hath been fastened, and, my children, with me, are, in bed: I cannot rise and give thee? I say unto you - Even though he will not give him, rising because of his being a friend of his, because, at least, of his importunity, he will rouse himself, and give him as many as he needeth. I, therefore, unto you, say - Be asking, and it shall be given to you, Be seeking, and ye shall find, - Be knocking, and it shall be opened unto you. But which is the father, from among yourselves, whom the son will ask for, a fish, who, instead of a fish, will give him, a serpent? Or shall also ask, an egg, who will give him, a scorpion? If therefore, ye, being, evil, know how to be giving, good gifts, unto your children, how much rather, will, the heavenly Father, give Holy Spirit unto them that ask him!


And there were, shepherds, in the same country, dwelling in the fields, and keeping the watches of the night over their flock. And, a messenger of the Lord, stood over them, and, a glory of the Lord, shone round about them; and they feared, a great fear. And the messenger said unto them - Be not afraid! For lo! I bring you good tidings of a great joy, the which shall be for all the people: read more.
That there hath been born unto you, this day, a saviour, - Who is Christ the Lord - in the city of David! And, this, to you is, a sign: Ye shall find a babe, wrapped in swaddling clothes, and lying in a manger. And, suddenly, there came to be, with the messenger, the throng of the heavenly host, praising God, and saying - Glory, in the highest, unto God! And, on earth, peace, among men of goodwill. And it came to pass, when the messengers had departed from them into heaven, that, the shepherds, began to say one to another - Let us go through forthwith as far as to Bethlehem, and see this thing which hath come to pass, which the Lord hath made known to us. And they came, with haste, and found both Mary and Joseph, and the babe lying in the manger. Now, when they beheld, they made known concerning the thing which had been told them as to this child. And, all who heard, marvelled concerning the things which had been told by the shepherds unto them; but, Mary, was closely observing, all, these things, putting them together in her heart. And the shepherds returned, giving glory and singing praise unto God, over all things which they had heard and seen, according as it had been told unto them.


Now, when, Jesus, was born in Bethlehem of Judaea, in the days of Herod the king, lo! wise men from eastern parts, came into Jerusalem: saying - Where is he that hath been born king of the Jews? for we saw his star in the east, and have come to bow down to him. But, when King Herod heard, he was troubled, and all Jerusalem with him; read more.
and, assembling all the high-priests and scribes of the people, he was enquiring of them - Where is, the Christ, to be born? And, they, said to him, In Bethlehem of Judaea, - for, so, is it written through the prophet: And, thou, Bethlehem, land of Judah, by no means least, art thou, among the governors of Judah, - For, out of thee, shall one come forth to govern, Who shall shepherd my people Israel. Then Herod, privately, calling the wise men, ascertained from them the time of the appearing star; and sending them to Bethlehem, said - Go search out accurately concerning the child, - and, as soon as ye find it, bring report unto me, that, I also, may come and bow myself down to it. Now, they, hearing the king, went, and lo! the star which they had seen in the east, was going before them, until it went and stood over where the child was; and, seeing the star, they rejoiced with exceeding great joy; and, coming into the house, they saw the child, with Mary its mother, - and, falling down, prostrated themselves unto it, and, opening their treasures, offered unto it gifts - gold and frankincense and myrrh; and, being instructed by dream, not to return unto Herod, by another way, retired they unto their own country.


And he went on to speak this parable: - A certain man had, a fig-tree, planted in his vineyard, and he canto seeking fruit therein, and found none. And he said unto the vine-dresser - Lo! three years, I come, seeking fruit in this fig-tree, and find none. Cut it down! Why doth it make, even the round useless? And, he, answering, saith unto him - Sir! let it alone this year also, until such time as I dig about it, and throw in manure, - read more.
and if it may bear fruit for the future; -- but, otherwise, certainly, thou shalt cut it down.


And there came unto him blind and lame, in the temple, and he cured them.


And it came to pass, in due course, that he was passing through, city by city and village by village, proclaiming, and delivering the glad-message of the kingdom of God, - and, the twelve, were with him; and certain women, who had been cured from evil spirits and infirmities, - Mary, the one called Magdalene, from whom seven demons had gone forth, and Joana, wife of Chuza steward of Herod, and Susanna, and many others, - who indeed were ministering unto them out of their possessions.


Now it came to pass, in those days, that there went forth a decree from Caesar Augustus, for all the inhabited earth to be enrolled: this enrolment, first was made while Cyrenius was governor of Syria: and all were journeying to be enrolled, each one unto his own city. read more.
And Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of a city Nazareth, into Judaea, into the city of David which is called Bethlehem; because he was of the house and family of David: to enrol himself with Mary who was betrothed to him, she being with child. And it came to pass, while they were there, that the days were fulfilled for her to give birth; and she gave birth to her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the inn.


After that, he appeared to above five hundred brethren at once, - of whom, the greater number, remain until even now, but, some, have fallen asleep, -


And, when eight days were fulfilled for circumcising him, then was his name called, Jesus, - which it was called by the messenger, before he was conceived in the womb.







Twelve years old, was Manasseh when he began to reign, - and, fifty-five years, reigned he in Jerusalem. And he did the thing that was wicked in the eyes of Yahweh,-according to the abominable ways of the nations, whom Yahweh dispossessed from before the sons of Israel. And he again built the high places, which Hezekiah his father had thrown down, - and set up altars to the Baalim, and made Sacred Stems, and bowed in prostration unto all the army of the heavens, and served them; read more.
and built altars in the house of Yahweh, - as to which Yahweh had said, In Jerusalem, shall be my Name, unto times age-abiding. Yea he built altars unto all the army of the heavens, - in the two courts of the house of Yahweh. And, he, caused his sons to pass through the fire, in the valley of the son of Hinnom, and practised hidden arts and used divination, and practised sorcery, and appointed a necromancer, and a wizard, - he exceeded in doing the thing that was wicked in the eyes of Yahweh, to provoke him to anger; and he set a resemblance-image which he had made, - in the house of God, as to which God had said unto David, and unto Solomon his son, In this house and in Jerusalem which I have chosen out of all the tribes of Israel, will I put my Name, unto times age-abiding. So will I not again remove the foot of Israel away from the soil which I appointed for their fathers. Only they must observe to do all that I have commanded them, even all the law and the statutes and the regulations, by the hand of Moses. And so Manasseh led astray Judah and the inhabitants of Jerusalem, - to commit wickedness beyond the nations which Yahweh had destroyed from before the sons of Israel. And Yahweh spake unto Manasseh and unto his people, but they did not give ear. So Yahweh brought in upon them, the captains of the army that belonged to the king of Assyria, and they captured Manasseh with hooks, - and bound him captive with a pair of bronze fetters, and took him away to Babylon. But, in his distress, he appeased the face of Yahweh his God, - and humbled himself greatly, before the God of his fathers; and, when he prayed unto him, then was he entreated of him, and hearkened unto his supplication, and brought him back to Jerusalem, unto his own kingdom, and so Manasseh came to know, that, Yahweh, is God. And, after this, he built an outer wall to the city of David on the west of the Gihon in the ravine, even to the entering in through the fish-gate, and went round to Ophel, and carried it up very high, - and put captains of valour in all the fortified cities, throughout Judah. And he removed the gods of the foreigner and the image, out of the house of Yahweh, and all the altars that he had built in the mountain of the house of Yahweh, and in Jerusalem, - and he cast them forth outside the city. And he built the altar of Yahweh, and sacrificed thereon peace-offerings, and thanksgiving sacrifices,-and gave word to Judah to serve Yahweh, God of Israel. Howbeit, still were, the people, sacrificing in the high places, - only unto Yahweh their God. But, the rest of the story of Manasseh, and his prayer unto his God, and the story of the seers who spake unto him in the name of Yahweh God of Israel, there they are, in the story of the kings of Israel: both his prayer and how God was entreated of him - and all his sin and his treacherous act, and the sites whereon he built high places, and set up the Sacred Stems and the images, before he humbled himself, there they are, written in the story of the seers. And Manasseh slept with his fathers, and they buried him in the garden off his own house, - and Amon his son reigned in his stead.

Twelve years old, was Manasseh when he began to reign, and, fifty-five years, reigned he in Jerusalem, - and the name of his mother was Hephzibah. And he did the thing that was wicked in the eyes of Yahweh, - after the abominable practices of the nations, whom Yahweh had dispossessed from before the sons of Israel. He again built the high places, which Hezekiah his father had destroyed, - and reared altars to Baal, and made a Sacred Stem, as did Ahab, king of Israel, and bowed down to all the army of the heavens, and served them. read more.
And he used to build altars in the house of Yahweh, - concerning which Yahweh had said, - In Jerusalem, will I put my Name. And he built altars to all the army of the heavens, - in the two courts of the house of Yahweh; and caused his son to pass through the fire, and practiced hidden arts and used divination, and dealt with a familiar spirit and wizards, - he exceeded in doing the thing that was wicked in the eyes of Yahweh, provoking him to anger; and he set the image of the Sacred Stem which he had made, - in the house, of which Yahweh had said unto David, and unto Solomon his son, In this house, and in Jerusalem which I have chosen out of all the tribes of Israel, will I put my Name, unto times age-abiding; and I will not again let the foot of Israel wander away from the soil which I gave unto their fathers. Only if they take heed to do according to all that I have commanded them, even to the extent of all the law which, my servant Moses, commanded them. But they hearkened not, - and Manasseh led them astray to do the thing that was wicked, more than the nations which Yahweh destroyed from before the sons of Israel. Yahweh therefore spake through his servants the prophets saying - Because Manasseh king of Judah hath made these abominations - hath done that which is wicked, more than all which the Amorites did who were before him, and hath caused, even Judah, to sin with his manufactured gods, therefore - Thus, saith Yahweh, God of Israel, Behold me! bringing in calamity upon Jerusalem and Judah, - that, whosoever heareth thereof, both his ears, will tingle; And I will stretch over Jerusalem, the line of Samaria, and the plummet of the house of Ahab, - and will wipe out Jerusalem, as one wipeth out a dish, wiping it and turning it upside down; And will abandon the remnant of mine inheritance, and deliver them into the hand of their enemies, - and they shall become a prey and a plunder, to all their enemies: Because they have done the thing that is wicked in mine eyes, and have become such as to provoke me to anger, - from the day when their fathers came forth out of Egypt, even until this day. Moreover also, innocent blood, did Manasseh shed in great abundance, till he had filled Jerusalem, from one end to the other, besides his committing the sins which he caused, Judah, to commit, in doing the thing that was wicked in the eyes of Yahweh. Now, the rest of the story of Manasseh, and all that he did, and his sin that he committed, are, they, not written in the book of the Chronicles of the Kings of Judah? And Manasseh slept with his fathers, and was buried in the garden of his own house, in the garden of Uzza, - and, Amon his son, reigned, in his stead.


Now there was, a man, in Maon, whose cattle were in Carmel, and, the man, was exceeding great, and, he, had three thousand sheep, and a thousand goats, - and so it was, that he was shearing his sheep in Carmel. Now, the name of the man, was Nabal, and, the name of his wife, Abigail, - and, the woman, was of good understanding, and of beautiful figure, - but, the man, was unfeeling and of evil practices, and he was a Calebite. So then David heard in the wilderness, - that Nabal was shearing his sheep. read more.
David, therefore, sent ten young men, - and David said unto the young men, - Go up to Carmel, and enter in unto Nabal, and ye shall ask him, in my name, of his welfare; and say thus - Long life to thee! Mayest, thou, prosper, And, thy household, prosper, And, all that thou hast, prosper! Now, therefore, have I heard that thou hast shearers, - Well, the shepherds that thou hast, have been with us, we reproached them not, neither missed they, anything, all the days they were in Carmel. Ask thy young men, that they may tell thee, that so my young men may find favour in thine eyes, for, on a good day, have we come! Give, I pray thee, what thy hand findeth, to thy servants, and to thy son, to David! So David's young men came, and spake unto Nabal, according to all these words, in the name of David, - and waited. Then Nabal answered the servants of David, and said, Who is David? And who is the son of Jesse? Nowadays, many are the servants that have broken away, every one from the presence of his lord: Shall I, then, take my bread, and my wine, and my slain beasts, that I have slaughtered for my shearers, - and give unto men of whom I know not whence they are? So the young men of David turned away for their journey, - and came back, and drew near, and told him, according to all these words. Then said David unto his men - Gird on you every man his sword. And they girded on them, every man his sword, and, David also, girded on his sword, - and there went up after David - about four hundred men, and, two hundred, abode by the stores. But a certain one of her young men told, Abigail, Nabal's wife, saying, - Lo! David sent messengers out of the wilderness to bless our lord, and he treated them with contempt. But, the men, were exceeding good to us, - and we were not harmed, neither missed we, anything, all the days we went to and fro with them, while we were in the fields: A wall, became they unto us, both by night and by day, all the days we were with them, tending the flock. Now, therefore, know thou, and see, what thou canst do, for mischief is determined against our lord, and against all his household, - but, he, is such an abandoned man, that one cannot speak unto him. Then Abigail hastened - and took two hundred loaves, and two skins of wine, and five sheep made ready, and five measures of parched corn, and a hundred cakes of raisins, and two hundred cakes of figs, - and put them on the asses. And she said to her young men - Pass on before me, behold me coming after you; but, to her husband, Nabal, told she nothing. And so it was, as she was riding on her ass, and descending within the covert of the hill, lo! David and his men, descending over against her, - so she met them. Now, David, had said - Surely, in vain, did I guard all that pertained to this man in the wilderness, so that there was, nothing, missed of all that he had, - seeing he hath returned to me evil for good. So may God do to David and so may he add, if I leave remaining, of all that he hath, until the morning, - so much as a little boy. And, when Abigail saw David, she hastened, and alighted from off her ass, - and fell down before David upon her face, and prostrated herself on the ground; yea she fell at his feet, and said - On me, even me, my lord, be the transgression, - But, I pray thee, let thy handmaid speak in thine ears, and hear thou the words of thy handmaid. Let it not be, I pray thee, that my lord regard this abandoned man - Nabal; For, as his name is, so, is he. Nabal, is his name, and, baseness, is with him, - But, I, thy handmaid, saw not the young men of my lord, whom thou didst send. Now, therefore, my lord - By the life of Yahweh, and by the life of thine own soul, - seeing Yahweh hath withholden thee from coming in with bloodshed, and from saving thyself, with thine own hand, now, therefore, like Nabal, be thine enemies, and they who are making search for my lord, wrongfully. Now, therefore, this blessing which thy maid-servant hath brought to my lord, let it even be given unto the young men who are going to and fro at the feet of my lord. Forgive, I pray thee, the trespass of thy handmaid, - for Yahweh, will certainly make, for my lord an assured house, for, the battles of Yahweh, is my lord fighting, and, wrong, shall not be found in thee, all thy days; yea, though there hath arisen a sun of earth to pursue thee, and to seek thy life, yet shall the life of my lord be bound up in the bundle of the living, with Yahweh thy God, but, as for the life of thine enemies, he shall sling it out with the middle of the hollow of the sling. And it shall be, when Yahweh shall do for my lord, according to all the good that he hath spoken concerning thee, - and shall put thee in charge as leader over Israel, then shall this not become to thee a staggering and stumbling of heart, unto my lord - that thou didst either shed blood without need, or that the hand of my lord saved himself. And, when Yahweh hath dealt well with my lord, then remember thou thy handmaid. Then said David unto Abigail, - Blessed, be Yahweh, the God of Israel, who hath sent thee this day, to meet me; and, blessed, be thy discreet judgment, and, blessed, be thou thyself, - who hast kept me, this day, from coming in with bloodshed, and from saving myself, with mine own hand. Nevertheless, by the life of Yahweh, God of Israel, who hath restrained me from harming, thee, surely, except thou hadst hastened and come to meet me, there had not been left unto Nabal, by the light of the morning, so much as a little boy. So David received at her hand, that which she had brought him, - and, unto herself, he said - Go up, in peace, unto thy house, see! I have hearkened unto thy voice, and accepted thy person. And, when Abigail came unto Nabal, lo! he, had a banquet in his house, like the banquet of a king, and, the heart of Nabal, was glad accordingly, he having drunk deeply, - so she told him nothing - less or more, until the light of the morning. And it came to pass, in the morning, when the wine had gone out of Nabal, and his wife told him these things, that his heart died within him, and he became like a stone. And it came to pass, in about ten days, that Yahweh smote Nabal, that he died.
