What then, if ye should view the Son of Man ascending where he was before? --




Whereas, in many parts and in many ways of old, God spake unto the fathers, in the prophets, At the end of these days, He hath spoken unto us in his Son, - whom he hath appointed heir of all things, through whom also he hath made the ages;


Of old - the earth, thou didst found, And, the work of thy hands, are the heavens; They, shall perish, But, thou, wilt abide; And, they all, like a garment, shall fall in pieces, As a vesture, wilt thou change them and they shall vanish; But, thou, art, the same, - And, thy years, shall have no end:

but, as to the Son, - Thy throne, O God, is unto times age-abiding, and - A sceptre of equity, is the sceptre of his kingdom, Thou hast loved righteousness, and hated lawlessness, - For this cause, hath God, thy God, anointed thee with the oil of exultation, beyond thy partners; and - Thou, by way of beginning, Lord, the earth, didst found, and, the works of thy hands, are the heavens, - read more.
They, shall perish, but, thou, abidest still, and, all, as a mantle, shall be worn out, And, as if a robe, wilt thou fold them up, - as a mantle, and they shall be changed; but, thou, art the same, and thy years shall not fail.

Because, of him, and through him, and unto him, are all things: - unto him, be the glory, unto the ages. Amen!

Yahweh, had constituted me the beginning of his way, before his works, at the commencement of that time; At the outset of the ages, had I been established, in advance of the antiquities of the earth; When there was no resounding deep, I had been brought forth, when there were no fountains, abounding with water; read more.
Ere yet the mountains had been settled, before the hills, had I been brought forth; Or ever he had made the land and the wastes, or the top of the dry parts of the world: When he prepared the heavens, there, was I! When he decreed a vault upon the face of the resounding deep; When he made firm the skies above, when the fountains of the resounding deep, waxed strong; When he fixed for the sea its bound, that, the waters, should not go beyond his bidding, when he decreed the foundations of the earth: - Then became I beside him, a firm and sure worker, then became I filled with delight, day by day, exulting before him on every occasion; Exulting in the fruitful land of his earth, Yea, my fulness of delight, was with the sons of men. Now, therefore, ye sons, hearken to me, for how happy are they who, to my ways, pay regard! Hear ye correction, and be wise, and do not neglect. How happy the man that doth hearken to me, - keeping guard at my doors, day by day, watching at the posts of my gates; For, he that findeth me, findeth life, and hath obtained favour from Yahweh; But, he that misseth me, wrongeth his own soul, all who hate me, love death.

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,

Abraham, your father, exulted that he should see my day; and he saw, and rejoiced. The Jews, therefore, said unto him - Fifty years old, not yet art thou, and, Abraham, hast thou seen? Jesus said unto them - Verily, verily, I say unto you: Before, Abraham, came into existence, I, am.

The same thing, esteem, in yourselves, which also, in Christ Jesus, ye esteem , - Who, in form of God, subsisting, not, a thing to be seized, accounted the being equal with God, But, himself, emptied, taking, a servant's form, coming to be, in men's likeness;

Who, is an image of the unseen God, Firstborn of all creation, - Because, in him, were created all things in the heavens and upon the earth, the things seen and the things unseen, whether thrones or lordships or principalities or authorities, - they all, through him and for him, have been created, And, he, is before all, and, they all, in him, hold together;

Seeing therefore the children have received a fellowship of blood and flesh, he also, in like manner, took partnership in the same, - in order that, through death, - he might paralyse him that held the dominion of death, that is, the Adversary, - And might release these - as many as, by fear of death, were all their lifetime liable, to bondage. For, not surely of messengers, is he laying hold, but, of Abraham's seed, he is laying hold.

For, if, unto them, Joshua had given rest, it had not in that case, concerning another day, been speaking, after, these things.



Jesus answered, and said unto them - Take down this shrine, and, in three days, will I raise it.



Jesus, therefore, said - Let her alone, that, for the day of my burial, she may observe it;

Lo! there cometh an hour, and hath come, that ye should be scattered, each, unto his own home; and, me, alone, should leave; - And yet I am not, alone, but, the Father, is, with me!

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.

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.

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.

Ye know that, after two days, the passover, taketh place, - and, the Son of Man, is to be delivered up, to be crucified.

and, as they were eating, he said - Verily, I say unto you, One from among you, will deliver me up.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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?

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.

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. Henceforth, I tell you, before it cometh to pass, - that ye may believe, whensoever it doth come to pass, that, I, am he. Verily, verily, I say unto you - He that receiveth whomsoever I shall send, receiveth, me; and, he that receiveth, me, receiveth him that sent me. read more.
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: 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!

Simon Peter saith unto him - Lord! whither dost thou withdraw? Jesus answered - Whither I withdraw, thou canst not, now, follow me, but thou shalt follow, hereafter. Peter saith unto him - Lord! why, cannot I follow thee, even now? My life, in thy behalf, will I lay down. Jesus answereth - Thy life, in my behalf, wilt thou lay down? Verily, verily, I say unto thee - In nowise shall a cock crow till thou hast denied me, thrice.



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?




Who hath no daily necessity, like the high-priests, beforehand, over his own sins, to be offering sacrifices, after that, over those, of the people, - for, this, he did once for all when, himself, he offered up.

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.

Therefore, will I give him a portion in the great, And the strong, shall he apportion as spoil, Because he poured out, to death his own soul, And with transgressors, let himself be numbered, - Yea, he, the sin of Many, bare, And for transgressors, interposeth.

Else had it been needful for him, ofttimes, to suffer, from the foundation of the world; but, now, once for all, upon a conjunction of the ages, for a setting aside of sin through means of his sacrifice, hath he been made manifest;

But, an immersion, have I, to be immersed with, and how am I distressed, until it be ended!



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.

Jesus answered - I told you, I, am he. If, then, ye seek me, let these go their way: -

And he said unto them - I have greatly desired, to eat, this passover, with you before I suffer;

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!

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?

And, again, departing, he prayed, the same thing, saying.

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;

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.


There shall not be found in thy midst - One who causeth his son or his daughter to pass through fire, - Or who useth divination, hidden arts or enchantments Or who muttereth incantations;

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, the multitudes, were saying - This, is the prophet Jesus, - He from Nazareth of Galilee.

And, seeking to secure him, they feared the multitudes; since, for a prophet, were they holding him.

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, 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.

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:

The woman saith unto him - Sir! I perceive that, a prophet, art, thou: -

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.

Some from amongst the multitude, therefore, having hearkened unto these words, were saying - This, is, in truth, the prophet.

So they were saying unto the blind man, again, What dost, thou, say concerning him, in that he opened thine eyes? And, he, said - A prophet, is he.

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.

A prophet out of thy midst of thy brethren like unto me, will Yahweh thy God, raise up unto thee - unto him, shall ye hearken:

The same, is the Moses that said unto the sons of Israel - A prophet, unto you, will God raise up, from among your brethren, like unto me:

And it shall be - every soul, whatsoever, which shall not hearken unto that prophet, shall be utterly destroyed from among the people.

how shall, we, escape, if, so great a salvation as this, we have neglected, - which, indeed, having received, a beginning, of being spoken through the Lord, by them who heard, unto us was confirmed,

Moses, indeed, said - A prophet, unto you, shall the Lord God raise up among your brethren, like unto me: unto him, shall ye hearken respecting all things whatsoever he shall speak unto you. And it shall be - every soul, whatsoever, which shall not hearken unto that prophet, shall be utterly destroyed from among the people.


And, when, these things, he had said, one of the officers who was standing by, gave a smart blow to Jesus, saying - Thus, answerest thou, the High-priest? Jesus answered him - If, with abuse, I spake, bear witness of the abuse: but, if with respect, why, smitest thou me?

These things, spake Jesus, and, lifting up his eyes unto heaven, said: - Father! The hour is come! Glorify thy Son, that, the Son, may glorify, thee, - Even as thou gavest him authority over all flesh, that, as touching whatsoever thou hast given him, he might give unto them, life age-abiding. And, this, is the age-abiding life, That they get to know thee, the only real God, and him whom thou didst send, Jesus Christ. read more.
I, glorified thee on the earth, The work, finishing, which thou hast given me that I should do. And, now, glorify me - thou, Father! with thyself, with the glory which I had, before the world's existence, with thee. I manifested thy name, unto the men whom thou gavest me out of the world: Thine, they were, and, to me, thou gavest them, and, thy word, have they kept: Now, have they come to know, That, all things, as many as thou gavest me, are, from thee; And, the declarations which thou gavest me, have I given them, and, they, received them, and came to know in truth, that, from thee, came I forth, - and they believed, that, thou, didst send me forth. I, concerning them, make request: not, concerning the world, do I make request, but concerning them whom thou hast given me, because, thine, they are, - And, all my possessions, are, thine, and, thy possessions, mine, and I have been glorified in them. And, no longer, am I in the world, and, they, are, in the world, - and, I, unto thee, am coming. Holy Father! Keep them in thy name which thou hast given me, that they may be one, as, we. When I was with them, I, kept them in thy name which thou hast given me, - And I kept watch, and, none from among them, went the destruction, - save the son of destruction, that, the Scripture, might be fulfilled. But, now, unto thee, am I coming; and, these things, am I speaking in the world, that they may have my own joy fulfilled in themselves. I, have given them thy word, and, the world, hated them, because they are not of the world - even as, I, am not of the world.

And Yahweh said unto me: They have well said what they have spoken. A prophet, will I raise up unto them, out of the midst of their brethren, like unto thee, - and I will put my words in his mouth, so shall he speak unto them whatsoever I shall command him. And it shall come to pass, that, the man who will not hearken unto my words which he shall speak in my name, I, myself will require it of him.

For, he whom God hath sent, the sayings of God, doth speak; for, not by measure, giveth he the Spirit. The Father, loveth the Son, and, all things, hath given into his hand.

They were saying unto him, therefore - Who art, thou? Jesus said unto them - First and foremost, even what I speak unto you. Many things, have I, concerning you, to speak, and to judge; but, he who sent me, is, true, and, I, what things I heard from him, the same, speak I unto the world. They noted not that, as touching the Father, unto them, he was speaking. read more.
Jesus, therefore, said - Whensoever ye shall lift up the Son of Man, then, shall ye know, that, I, am he, and, of myself, am doing, nothing; but, just as the Father taught me, the same things, am I speaking. And, he that sent me, is, with me: He hath not left me, alone. Because, I, the things that please him, ever do.

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. read more.
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.

I, am the real vine, and, my Father, is, the husbandman. Every branch in me that beareth not fruit, He taketh it away; and, every one that beareth, fruit, He pruneth it, that, more fruit, it may bear. Already, ye, are, pure, because of the word which I have spoken unto you: read more.
Abide in me, and, I, in you. Just as, the branch, cannot be bearing fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine, so, neither, ye, except, in me, ye abide. I, am the vine: Ye, are the branches. He that abideth in me and, I, in him, the same, beareth much fruit; because, apart from me, ye can bring forth, nothing. If one abide not me, he is cast out as the branch, and withered, and they gather them, - and, into fire, they cast them, and they are burned. If ye abide in me, and, my sayings, in you, abide, whatsoever ye may be desiring, ask! and it shall be brought to pass for you. Herein, was my Father glorified, that, much fruit, ye should bear, and become my disciples. Just as the Father loved me, I also, loved you: Abide ye in my love. If, my commandments, ye keep, ye shall abide in my love, - just as, I, the Father's commandments, have kept, and abide in his love. These things, have I spoken unto you, that, my own joy, in you, may be, and, your joy, may be made full. This, is my own commandment, That ye be loving one another, just as I loved you. Greater love than this, hath, no one, That, his life, one should lay down in behalf of his friends. Ye, are, friends of mine, if ye be doing that which, I, am commanding you. No longer, do I call you, servants, for, the servant, knoweth not what, his lord, is doing. But, you, I have called, friends, because, all things which I heard from my Father, made I known unto you.

His disciples say - See! now, openly, art thou speaking, and, not a single similitude, art thou using: Now, we know, that thou knowest all things, and hast, no need, that one be questioning thee. Hereby, do we believe, that, from God, thou camest forth. Jesus answered them - As yet, ye believe: read more.
Lo! there cometh an hour, and hath come, that ye should be scattered, each, unto his own home; and, me, alone, should leave; - And yet I am not, alone, but, the Father, is, with me! These things, have I spoken unto you, that, in me, ye may have, peace: In the world, ye have, tribulation; but be taking courage, - I, have overcome the world.

The first narrative, indeed, made I, concerning all things, O Theophilus, which Jesus began both to do and teach, - Until the day when, having given command unto the apostles, whom through Holy Spirit he had chosen, he was taken up; 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.


for he was teaching them as one having, authority, and not as their Scribes.

The first narrative, indeed, made I, concerning all things, O Theophilus, which Jesus began both to do and teach, -

But, ye, - do not be called Rabbi, - for, one, is your Teacher, and, all ye, are brethren;

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, he, began teaching in their synagogues, being glorified by all.

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.

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.

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:

And, when he, entered, the temple, the Chief-priests and the Elders of the people, came unto him as he was teaching, saying, By what authority, these things, art thou doing? and, who, to thee, gave, this authority?

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?

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:

But, seeing the multitudes, he went up into a mountain, - and, when he had taken a seat, his disciples came unto him;

And it came to pass, when Jesus had finished giving instructions to his twelve disciples, he passed on from thence, to be teaching and proclaiming in their cities.

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;

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.

But, they, began to be urgent, saying - He is stirring up the people, teaching along all Judaea, even beginning from Galilee unto this place.


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.




Moreover, I, Paul, myself, exhort you, through the meekness and considerateness of the Christ, - I who, to look upon, indeed, am lowly toward you, but, absent, am bold towards you; -


But, himself, emptied, taking, a servant's form, coming to be, in men's likeness; And, in fashion, being found, as a man, humbled himself, becoming obedient as far as death, yea, death upon a cross.

For which is greater - he that reclineth? or he that ministereth? Is not he that reclineth? But, I, am, in your midst, as he that ministereth,

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, 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.

If then, I, have washed your feet, - I The Lord, and, The Teacher, ye also, ought to wash, one another's, feet;

Now, the passage of Scripture which he was reading, was, this: - As a sheep, unto slaughter, was he led, and, as a lamb, before him that sheareth it, is dumb, so, he openeth not his mouth. In his humiliation, his judgment was taken away, - his generation, who shall describe? because, his life, is taken away from the earth.



They were saying unto him, therefore - Who art, thou? Jesus said unto them - First and foremost, even what I speak unto you. Many things, have I, concerning you, to speak, and to judge; but, he who sent me, is, true, and, I, what things I heard from him, the same, speak I unto the world. They noted not that, as touching the Father, unto them, he was speaking. read more.
Jesus, therefore, said - Whensoever ye shall lift up the Son of Man, then, shall ye know, that, I, am he, and, of myself, am doing, nothing; but, just as the Father taught me, the same things, am I speaking. And, he that sent me, is, with me: He hath not left me, alone. Because, I, the things that please him, ever do.

Then, said I - Lo! I am come, In the written scroll, is it prescribed for me; To do thy good-pleasure, O my God, is my delight, And, thy law, is in the midst of mine inward parts: I have told the good-tidings of righteousness in a great convocation, Lo! my lips, do I not restrain, O Yahweh, thou, knowest:

But, he, answered them - My Father, until even now, is working; and, I, am working. On this account, therefore, the rather, were the Jews seeking to slay him, - because, not only was he breaking the Sabbath, but was calling God, his own Father, making, himself, equal, with, God. Jesus, therefore, answered, and went on to say unto them - Verily, verily, I say unto you: The Son cannot be doing, of himself, a single thing, - save anything he may see, the Father, doing; for, whatsoever, he, may be doing, these things, the Son also, in like manner, doeth. read more.
For, the Father, dearly loveth the Son, and, all things, pointeth out to him, which, himself, is doing; and, greater works than these, will he point out to him, that, ye, may marvel.

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, - read more.
Because I have come down from heaven, - Not that I should be doing my own will, but the will of him that sent me.

Jesus answered - Neither, this man, sinned nor his parents; but -- that the works of God should be made manifest in him. We must needs be working the works of him that sent me, while it is, day: There cometh a night, when, no one, can work.

Jesus answered, and said unto him - If any man be loving me, my word, he will keep, and, my Father, will love him, - and, unto him, will we come, and, an abode with him, will we make. He that loveth me not, doth not keep, my word; - and, the word which ye hear, is not mine, but, the Father's who sent me. These things, have I spoken unto you, With you abiding; read more.
But, the Advocate, The Holy Spirit, which the Father will send in my name, He, will teach you all things, and will put you in mind, of all things which, I, told you. Peace, I leave with you, My own peace, give, I, unto you, - Not as, the world, giveth, give, I, unto you: - Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid. Ye heard that, I, said unto you - I go my way, and I come unto you, - Had ye loved me, ye would have rejoiced, that I am going unto the Father, for, the Father, is, greater than I. But, now, have I told you, before it cometh to pass, that, whensoever it shall come to pass, ye may believe. No longer, many things, will I speak with you; for, the world's ruler, is coming, and, in me, hath, nothing, - But, that the world may get to know that I love the Father, and just as the Father hath given me commandment, so, I do. Be rousing yourselves! let us be leading on from hence.

These things, spake Jesus, and, lifting up his eyes unto heaven, said: - Father! The hour is come!

And, coming forth, he saw a great multitude, - and was moved with compassion a over them, and cured their sick.

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 said - Verily, I say unto you, Except ye turn and become as the children, in nowise, shall ye enter into the kingdom of the heavens. Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this child, the same, is the greatest, in the kingdom of the heavens;

And he was saying unto them - Ye, are, of the realms below, I, am, of the realms above: Ye, are, of this world, I, am not of this world.

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!

Neither shall they say - Lo, here! or, There. For lo! the kingdom of God, is, among you.

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.

So that, we, henceforth, know, no one, after the flesh: if we have even been gaining, after the flesh, a knowledge of Christ, On the contrary, now, no longer, are we gaining it. So that, if any one is in Christ, there is a new creation! the old things, have passed away, - Lo! they have become new!

For, though, in flesh, we walk, not, according to flesh, do we war, - For, the weapons of our warfare, are not fleshly, but mighty, by God, unto a pulling down of strongholds, - When we pull down, calculations, and every height that uplifteth itself against the knowledge of God, and when we bring into captivity every thought unto the obedience of the Christ,



Ye, however, are they who have remained throughout with me in my temptations;


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.

for before the boy knoweth to refuse the bad and choose the good, forsaken shall be the land, at which, thou, art alarmed, of the presence of both her kings.

Then, Jesus was led up into the wilderness, by the Spirit, to be tempted by the adversary; and, fasting forty days and forty nights, - afterwards, he hungered. And, coming near, the tempter said to him, - If thou art God's, Son, speak! that, these stones, may become, loaves. read more.
But, he, answering, said, It is written, - Not on bread alone, shall man live, but on every declaration coming forth through the mouth of God. Then, the adversary taketh him with him, unto the holy city, - and he set him upon the pinnacle of the temple; and saith to him - If thou art God's, Son, cast thyself down, - for it is written, To his messengers, will he give charge concerning thee; and, on hands, will they bear thee up, lest once thou strike, against a stone, thy foot. Jesus said to him, Again, it is written, - Thou shalt not put to the test, the Lord thy God. Again, the adversary taketh him with him, into an exceeding high mountain, - and pointeth out to him all the kingdoms of the world, and their glory; and said to him, All these things, will I give thee, - if thou wilt fall down and worship me. Then saith Jesus unto him, Withdraw, Satan! for it is written, - The Lord thy God, shalt thou worship, and, to him alone, render divine service. Then, the adversary leaveth him, - and lo! messengers came near, and began ministering unto him.

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.


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.


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, - read more.
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, 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, -

To each one of you, however, hath favour been given, according to the measure of the free-gift of the Christ; Wherefore he saith - Ascending on high, he took captivity captive, and gave gifts unto men. Now this, He ascended; what is it, - save - that he also descended into the under parts of the earth? read more.
He that descended, he, it is who also ascended over-above all the heavens, that he might fill all things;

He said unto them again, therefore - I, go, and ye shall seek me, - and yet, in your sin, shall ye die: Whither, I, go, ye, cannot come. The Jews, therefore, were saying - Can it be that he will kill himself, that he saith, Whither, I, go, ye, cannot come? And he was saying unto them - Ye, are, of the realms below, I, am, of the realms above: Ye, are, of this world, I, am not of this world.

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,


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: read more.
He that feedeth upon my flesh, and drinketh my blood, in me, abideth, and, I, in him.

These things, spake Jesus, and, lifting up his eyes unto heaven, said: - Father! The hour is come! Glorify thy Son, that, the Son, may glorify, thee, - Even as thou gavest him authority over all flesh, that, as touching whatsoever thou hast given him, he might give unto them, life age-abiding. And, this, is the age-abiding life, That they get to know thee, the only real God, and him whom thou didst send, Jesus Christ. read more.
I, glorified thee on the earth, The work, finishing, which thou hast given me that I should do. And, now, glorify me - thou, Father! with thyself, with the glory which I had, before the world's existence, with thee. I manifested thy name, unto the men whom thou gavest me out of the world: Thine, they were, and, to me, thou gavest them, and, thy word, have they kept: Now, have they come to know, That, all things, as many as thou gavest me, are, from thee; And, the declarations which thou gavest me, have I given them, and, they, received them, and came to know in truth, that, from thee, came I forth, - and they believed, that, thou, didst send me forth. I, concerning them, make request: not, concerning the world, do I make request, but concerning them whom thou hast given me, because, thine, they are, - And, all my possessions, are, thine, and, thy possessions, mine, and I have been glorified in them. And, no longer, am I in the world, and, they, are, in the world, - and, I, unto thee, am coming. Holy Father! Keep them in thy name which thou hast given me, that they may be one, as, we. When I was with them, I, kept them in thy name which thou hast given me, - And I kept watch, and, none from among them, went the destruction, - save the son of destruction, that, the Scripture, might be fulfilled. But, now, unto thee, am I coming; and, these things, am I speaking in the world, that they may have my own joy fulfilled in themselves. I, have given them thy word, and, the world, hated them, because they are not of the world - even as, I, am not of the world. I request not, that thou wouldst take them out of the world, but that thou wouldst keep them out of the evil: Of the world, they are not, even as, I, am not of the world. Hallow them in the truth: Thine own word, is, truth: Even as thou didst send me forth into the world, I also, send them forth into the world; And, on their behalf, I, hallow myself, that, they also, may have become hallowed in truth. Not however concerning these alone, do I make request, but, concerning them also who believe, through their word, on me: That they, all, may be, one, - even as, thou, Father, in me, and, I, in thee, - that, they also, in us, may be; - that, the world, may believe that, thou, didst send me forth. And, I, the glory which thou hast given to me, have given to them, that they may be one, even as, we, are, one. - I, in them and, thou, in me; That they may have been perfected into, one, - That the world may get to know, that, thou, didst send me forth, and didst love them even as thou didst love, me. Father! As touching that which thou hast given me, I desire - That, where, I, am, they also, may be, with me, that they may behold my own glory which thou hast given me, - because thou lovedst me, before the foundation of the world. Righteous Father! And so, the world, came not to know thee; but, I, came to know thee, and, these, came to know that, thou, didst send me forth: And I made known unto them thy name, and will make known, - that, the love wherewith thou lovedst me, in them, may be, and, I, in them.

Philip saith unto him - Lord! show us the Father, and it sufficeth us. Jesus saith unto him - So long a time as this, have I been, with you, - and thou hast not come to know me, Philip? He that hath seen me, hath seen the Father. How art, thou, saying, Show us the Father? Believest thou not, that, I, am in the Father, and, the Father, is, in me? The things which I am saying unto you, from myself, I speak not; but, the Father, within me abiding, doeth his works. read more.
Believe me, That, I, am in the Father, and, the Father, in me; - or else, on account of the works themselves, believe ye. Verily, verily, I say unto you - He that believeth on me, the works which, I, am doing, he also, shall do; and, greater than these, shall he do, because, I, unto the Father, am going, - And because, whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, the same, will I do, that, the Father, may be glorified, in the Son: If anything ye shall ask mein my name, the same, will I do. If ye be loving me, my commandments, ye will keep; And, I, will request the Father, and, Another Advocate, will he give unto you, that he may be with you age-abidingly, The Spirit of truth, - which, the world, cannot receive, because it beholdeth it not, nor getteth to know it. But, ye, are getting to know it; because, with you, it abideth, and, in you, it is. I will not leave you bereft, - I am coming unto you. Yet a little, and, the world, no longer beholdeth me; but, ye, behold me, - Because, I, live, ye also, shall live. In that day, shall ye get to know, That, I, am in my Father, and, ye, in me, and, I, in you.

Beloved! if our heart be not condemning us, boldness, have we, towards God; And, whatsoever we are asking, we are receiving from him, because, his commandments, are we keeping, and, the things that are pleasing before him, are we doing. And, this, is his commandment, - that we should believe in the name of his Son Jesus Christ, and be loving one another - just as he gave a commandment unto us. read more.
And, he that keepeth his commandments, in him, abideth, and, he, in him. And, hereby, perceive we, that he abideth in us, by reason of the Spirit which, unto us, he hath given.

For, although he was crucified through weakness, yet is he living through God's power, - for, although, we, are weak in him, yet shall we live with him, through God's power unto us- Be trying, yourselves, whether ye are in the faith, be putting, yourselves, to the test! Or do ye not recognise yourselves, seeing that, Jesus Christ, is in you, - unless perhaps ye fail in the testing.



But, ye, - do not be called Rabbi, - for, one, is your Teacher, and, all ye, are brethren; And, father, be none of you called, upon the earth, for, one, is your Father, the Heavenly; Neither be called leaders, for, your leader, is one, the Christ;

If, we, this day, are to be examined for doing good to a sick man, - in whom, this, man hath been made well, Be it known unto you all, and unto all the people of Israel: that, in the name of Jesus Christ the Nazarene, - whom, ye, crucified, whom, God, raised from among the dead, in him, doth, this man stand by, in your presence, whole. This, is the stone, set at nought by you the builders, which became the head of the corner; read more.
And there is in no one else, salvation, for, neither is there any other name, under heaven, which hath been set forth among men, in which we must needs be saved.

Concerning, then, the eating of idol-sacrifices, we are aware - that an idol is, nothing, in the world, and that, none, is God save one. For, if indeed there are so-called gods, whether in heaven or upon earth, - as indeed there are gods many and lords many, Yet, to us, there is one God the Father, of whom are all things, and, we, for him; and one Lord Jesus Christ, through whom are all things, and, we, through him.


For, before these days, there rose up one Theudas, affirming, himself, to be somebody, - unto whom was inclined a number of men, about four hundred; who was slain, and, all as many as had been trusting in him, were disbanded, and came to nothing. After him, rose up Judas the Galilaean, in the days of the enrolling, and drew a people into revolt after him; and, he, perished, and, all, as many as had trusted in him, were scattered.

And, answering, Jesus said unto them - Be taking heed, lest anyone, deceive, you; For, many, will come upon my name, saying - I, am the Christ, - and will, deceive many.

Then, if any, unto you, say - Lo! here, is the Christ, or, there, Do not believe it; For there will arise, false Christs, and false prophets, - and they will show great signs and wonders, so that, if possible, even the chosen, should be deceived: - Lo! I have foretold you. read more.
If therefore they should say unto you, Lo! in the desert, he is, Do not go forth; Lo! in the chambers, Do not believe it.

And, Jesus, began to be saying unto them - Beware, lest anyone, deceive, you; For, many, will come on my name, saying, I, am he! and, will deceive, many.

And, then, if any, unto you, say - See! Here, is the Christ! See! there, do not believe it; For there will arise, false Christs, and false prophets; and they will show signs and wonders, so as to deceive, if possible, the chosen. But, ye, beware: I have foretold you, all things.

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.

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 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.

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.

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.

In that hour came, the disciples unto Jesus, saying - Who then is, greatest, in the kingdom of the heavens? And, calling near a child, he set it in the midst of them, and said - Verily, I say unto you, Except ye turn and become as the children, in nowise, shall ye enter into the kingdom of the heavens.

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;

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!


Be taking heed, lest there shall be anyone leading, you, off as a spoil, through means of their philosophy, and an empty deceit, - according to the instruction of men, according to the first principles of the world, - and not according to Christ: Because, in him, dwelleth all the fullness of the Godhead, bodily, And ye are, in him, filled full, - Who, is the head of all principality and authority, read more.
In whom, ye have also been circumcised with a circumcision not done by hand, in the despoiling of the body of flesh, in the circumcision of the Christ, - Having been buried together with him in your immersion, wherein also ye have been raised together, through your faith in the energising of God - Who raised him from among the dead. And, as for you - who were, dead, by your offences and by the uncircumcision of your flesh, he hath brought you to life together with him, - having in favour forgiven us all our offences, Having blotted out the handwriting against us by the decrees, which was hostile to us, - and hath taken away, the same, out of the midst, nailing it up to the cross: Spoiling the principalities and the authorities, he made of them an open example, celebrating a triumph over them thereby.

For this cause, am I enduring, all things, for the sake of the chosen, in order that, they also, may obtain, the salvation, which is in Christ Jesus along with glory age-abiding.


Nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.


And, unto the messenger of the assembly, in Laodicea, write: - These things, saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness the beginning of the creation of God:




And to bring to light - what is the administration of the sacred secret which had been hidden away from the ages in God, who did all things create:


and - Thou, by way of beginning, Lord, the earth, didst found, and, the works of thy hands, are the heavens, -

Because, in him, were created all things in the heavens and upon the earth, the things seen and the things unseen, whether thrones or lordships or principalities or authorities, - they all, through him and for him, have been created, And, he, is before all, and, they all, in him, hold together;


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 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.



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.

But, that ye may know that the Son of Man hath authority to be forgiving sins upon the earth, he saith to the paralytic:

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, beholding their faith, he said - O man! thy sins are forgiven thee.

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? read more.
But he said unto the woman - Thy faith, hath saved thee, - Go thy way into peace.


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,




Then said Paul - John, immersed with an immersion of repentance, unto the people, saying, that, on him who was coming after him, they should believe, - that is, on Jesus.





Salute ye one another with a kiss of love. Peace unto you all who are in Christ.


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; -

I, am the real vine, and, my Father, is, the husbandman. Every branch in me that beareth not fruit, He taketh it away; and, every one that beareth, fruit, He pruneth it, that, more fruit, it may bear. Already, ye, are, pure, because of the word which I have spoken unto you:

I know that ye are, seed of Abraham; but ye are seeking to kill me, because, my word, findeth no place in you. What things, I, have seen with the Father, I am speaking; Ye, also, then, what things ye have heard from your father, are doing. - They answered and said unto him - Our father, is, Abraham. Jesus saith unto them - If, children of Abraham, ye are, the works of Abraham, are ye doing. read more.
But, now, ye are seeking, to kill me, - A man who, the truth, unto you, hath spoken, which I have heard from God: this, Abraham, did not. Ye, are doing the works of your father. They said unto him - We, of fornication, were not born: One father, have we - God. Jesus said unto them - If, God, had been your father, ye had been loving me, for, I, from God, came forth, and am here; for, not even of myself, have I come, but, he, sent me forth. Wherefore, is it, that, my speech, ye do not understand? because ye cannot hear my word. Ye, are, of your father - the adversary, and, the covetings of your father, ye choose to be doing. He, was, a murderer, from the beginning, and, in the truth, he stood not; because truth is not in him: Whensoever he speaketh falsehood, of his own, he speaketh; because, false, he is, and, the father of it. But, as for me, because, the truth, I speak, ye do not believe me. Which of you convicteth me of sin? If, truth, I speak, wherefore, do, ye, not believe me? He that is of God, heareth, the sayings of God; therefore, do, ye, not hear, because, of God, ye are not.

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. read more.
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.

Jesus saith unto him - I, am the way, and the truth, and the life: No one, cometh unto the Father, but through me. If ye had been getting to know me, my Father also, had ye known: from henceforth, are ye getting to know him, and have seen him. Philip saith unto him - Lord! show us the Father, and it sufficeth us. read more.
Jesus saith unto him - So long a time as this, have I been, with you, - and thou hast not come to know me, Philip? He that hath seen me, hath seen the Father. How art, thou, saying, Show us the Father? Believest thou not, that, I, am in the Father, and, the Father, is, in me? The things which I am saying unto you, from myself, I speak not; but, the Father, within me abiding, doeth his works. Believe me, That, I, am in the Father, and, the Father, in me; - or else, on account of the works themselves, believe ye.


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.



In that day, In my name, shall ye ask: - and I say not that, I, will request the Father for you;




And, in that day, shall ye request me, nothing: - Verily, verily, I say unto you - Whatsoever ye shall ask the Father, He will give you, in my name. Until even now, ye have asked nothing in my name: Be asking, and ye shall receive, - that, your joy, may be made full.


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.



But, ye, denied, the Holy and Righteous One, and claimed a man that was a murderer to be granted you;


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.

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.

Said the God of Israel, Unto me, spake the Rock of Israel: - One Ruling over Men, A Righteous One, ruling in the reverence of God,


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. read more.
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.

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. read more.
And forth went this report, into the whole of that land.

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 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.

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. read more.
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 stone to strike against, and a rock to stumble over: Who stumble because, unto the word, they do not yield, - unto which also they have been appointed;

In the year that King Uzziah died, I saw My Lord, sitting upon a throne high and lifted up, and, his skirts, did fill the temple, Seraphim, were standing above him; six wings severally, had each one, - With twain, he covered his face And with twain, he covered his feet And with twain, he did fly. And they continued crying out one to another, and said, Holy - holy - holy, is Yahweh of hosts, - the fulness of the whole earth, is his glory.

These things, said Isaiah, because he saw his glory, and spake concerning him.

Yahweh of hosts, him, shall ye hallow, - And let, him, be your fear, and let, him inspire you with awe; So shall he become a hallowed asylum, - But a stone to strike against, and a rock to stumble over unto both houses of Israel A trap and a snare to the dweller in Jerusalem;



Thus saith Yahweh - King of Israel, Even his Redeemer, Yahweh of hosts, - I, am, First, and, I, Last, And besides me, there is no God.


Hearken unto me O Jacob, And Israel, my called one, - I, am, the Same I, the first, yea, I, the last: Surely, mine own hand, founded the earth, And, my right hand, stretched out the heavens, - While I was calling unto them, they stood forth, at once Assemble yourselves - all of you and hear, Who among them, hath told these things? he whom Yahweh loveth, will execute - His pleasure, on Babylon, And his stroke on the Chaldeans. read more.
I - I, have spoken, Yea I have called him, - I have brought him in, and he shall make prosperous his way. Draw ye near unto me - hear ye this, Not in advance in secret, have I spoken, From the very time it cometh into being, there, am I, - And, now, My Lord Yahweh hath sent me and his spirit.


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, 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. 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. read more.
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, 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? read more.
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 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. 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. read more.
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.

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. read more.
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 he spake unto them many things, in parables, saying: Lo! the sower went forth to sow, - 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; read more.
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.

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. And, other, fell and thorns; and, growing together, the thorns, choked it. read more.
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.

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; read more.
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!

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, read more.
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.

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. read more.
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 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, the declarations which thou gavest me, have I given them, and, they, received them, and came to know in truth, that, from thee, came I forth, - and they believed, that, thou, didst send me forth.

Many things, have I, concerning you, to speak, and to judge; but, he who sent me, is, true, and, I, what things I heard from him, the same, speak I unto the world.

Believest thou not, that, I, am in the Father, and, the Father, is, in me? The things which I am saying unto you, from myself, I speak not; but, the Father, within me abiding, doeth his works.

He that loveth me not, doth not keep, my word; - and, the word which ye hear, is not mine, but, the Father's who sent me.


And I made known unto them thy name, and will make known, - that, the love wherewith thou lovedst me, in them, may be, and, I, in them.

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.

Jesus, therefore, said - Whensoever ye shall lift up the Son of Man, then, shall ye know, that, I, am he, and, of myself, am doing, nothing; but, just as the Father taught me, the same things, am I speaking.



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.


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.

Whereas, in many parts and in many ways of old, God spake unto the fathers, in the prophets, At the end of these days, He hath spoken unto us in his Son, - whom he hath appointed heir of all things, through whom also he hath made the ages;

I manifested thy name, unto the men whom thou gavest me out of the world: Thine, they were, and, to me, thou gavest them, and, thy word, have they kept:

And, no one, hath ascended into heaven, save he that, out of heaven, descended, - The Son of Man.



And I made known unto them thy name, and will make known, - that, the love wherewith thou lovedst me, in them, may be, and, I, in them.



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! read more.
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 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 there ariseth a great tempest of wind, - and, the waves, were dashing over into the boat, so that, already being filled, was the boat. read more.
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.




O Sword! awake against my shepherd, even against the man that is my companion, urgeth Yahweh of hosts, - Smite the shepherd, and let the flock, be scattered, Howbeit I will turn back my hand over the little ones.



Then, Jesus saith unto them - All ye, will find cause of stumbling in me, during this night; for it is written, I will smite the shepherd, and, the sheep of the flock, will be scattered abroad;


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;

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. read more.
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.


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!



Hear ye the word of Yahweh, O ye nations, And declare ye in the Coastlands, afar off, - And say - He that scattereth Israel, will gather him, And watch over him as a shepherd his flock;

Thus, saith My Lord. Yahweh, Behold me! against the shepherds So then I will require my flock at their hand And will cause them to cease tending the fleck, Neither shall the shepherds any longer tend themselves, But I will deliver my flock out of their mouth, that they may not be their food.

So will Yahweh their God, save them, on that day. yea, as a flock of sheep, his people, - for they shall be like the jewels of a diadem sparkling over his land.



I adjure thee before God, and Christ Jesus - Who is about to be judging living and dead, - both as to his forthshining and his kingdom,









If therefore the like free-gift God gave unto them, as even unto us, when we had believed upon the Lord Jesus Christ, who was, I, that could withstand God?


Dear children! Yet a little, am I, with you. Ye shall seek me, and, just as I said unto the Jews, Whither, I, go, ye, cannot come, unto you also, I say it, even now.



He said unto them again, therefore - I, go, and ye shall seek me, - and yet, in your sin, shall ye die: Whither, I, go, ye, cannot come.

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.

For, the destitute, always, have ye with you, whereas, me, not always, have ye.


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.


And, unto the messenger of the assembly, in Laodicea, write: - These things, saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness the beginning of the creation of God:



And, the declarations which thou gavest me, have I given them, and, they, received them, and came to know in truth, that, from thee, came I forth, - and they believed, that, thou, didst send me forth.



He is not here, for he hath arisen, as he said. Come! see the place where he lay;

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!

Remember how he spake unto you while yet he was in Galilee:

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.



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.

And I will raise up over them one shepherd And he shall tend them, Even my servant David, - Hell will tend them, And libel will become to them a shepherd;

And my servant David shall be king over them, And one shepherd, shall they all have, And in my regulations, shall they walk, And my statutes, shall they observe and do them.


Where a forerunner in our behalf hath entered, even Jesus, who, according to the rank of Melchizedek, hath become, a high-priest unto times age-abiding.


As also, in a different place, he saith - Thou, art a priest, age-abidingly, according to the rank of Melchizedek:

And, yet more abundantly evident it is - that, according to the likeness of Melchizedek, there is to be raised up, a different priest.

For it is witnessed - Thou, art a priest, age-abidingly, according to the rank of Melchizedek.


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, the blind man, said unto him - Rabboni! that may recover sight. And, Jesus, said unto him - Go thy way! thy faith, hath saved thee. And, straightway, he recovered sight, and was following him in the road.

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, 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.


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 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.

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. Verily, I say unto you - Whosoever shall not welcome the kingdom of God, as a child, in nowise shall enter thereinto. read more.
And, folding them in his arms, he was blessing them, having laid his hands upon them.

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.

Wherefore also, God, uplifted him far on high, and favoured him with the name which is above every name, -




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, 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.

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. 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; read more.
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; 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.


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.

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 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, 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. And he said unto them - This, is, my blood of the covenant, that is to be poured out in behalf of many. 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. And, taking a loaf, he gave thanks, and brake, and gave unto them, saying - This is my body


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 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, 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?

The officers answered - Never, man spake thus!

and they were being struck with astonishment at his teaching, because, with authority, was his word.


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:


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 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.





If ye had been getting to know me, my Father also, had ye known: from henceforth, are ye getting to know him, and have seen him. Philip saith unto him - Lord! show us the Father, and it sufficeth us. Jesus saith unto him - So long a time as this, have I been, with you, - and thou hast not come to know me, Philip? He that hath seen me, hath seen the Father. How art, thou, saying, Show us the Father? read more.
Believest thou not, that, I, am in the Father, and, the Father, is, in me? The things which I am saying unto you, from myself, I speak not; but, the Father, within me abiding, doeth his works.

And, all my possessions, are, thine, and, thy possessions, mine, and I have been glorified in them.


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 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.
