In that night the king's sleep fled away, and he will say to bring in the book of memorials of the words of the days; and they will be read before the king. And it will be found written that Mordecai announced concerning Bigthana and Teresh, the king's two eunuchs watching the threshold, who sought to stretch forth the hand upon the king Ahasuerus.

And the king will say to him, What to be done for the man whom the king delighted in his honor? And Haman will say in his heart, To whom will the king delight to do honor more abundantly than me? And Haman will say to the king, The man whom the king delighted in his honor, They shall bring in the clothing of the kingdom which the king was clothed in, it and the horse which the king rode upon him, and the crown of the kingdom which was given upon his head: And giving the clothing and the horse to the hand of a man of the chiefs of the king, the nobles; and clothe the man which the king delighted in his honor, and cause him to ride upon the horse in the broad place of the city, and tall before him, Thus shall it be done to the man whom the king delighted in his honor.

For as a man going abroad, called his own servants, and delivered them his possessions: And to one he truly gave five talents, and to one, two, and to one, one; to each according to his own power; and he quickly went abroad.

His lord said to him, Well, good and faithful servant; thou wast faithful over a few things, I will set thee over many; enter into the joy of thy lord. And he also having received one talent, having come near, said, Lord, I knew thee that thou art a hard man, reaping where thou sowedst not, and gathering where thou scatteredst not: And having been afraid, having gone away, I concealed thy talent in the earth; see, thou hast thine own. read more.
And his lord having answered, said to him, O evil and slothful servant, thou knewest that I reap where I sowed not, and gather where I scattered not: Thou therefore oughtest to have cast my silver to the money changers, and I having come, had received mine own, with interest Therefore take the talent away from him, and give him having ten talents. For to every one having shall be given, and he shall be in abundance: and from him not having, also what he has shall be taken away from him. And cast ye the useless servant into darkness without; weeping shall be there, and gnashing of teeth.

Then he said, A certain honourable man went into a country far off to take unto himself a kingdom, and to return. And having called his ten servants, he gave them ten coins, and said to them, Attend to business, till I come. And his citizens hated him, and sent an embassy after him, saying, We wish not this to reign over us. read more.
And it was in his coming back, having received the kingdom, and he spake to have these servants called to him, to whom he gave the silver, that he might know who had attended to any business. And the first approached, saying, Lord, thy coin has gained ten coins. And he said to him, Well, good servant: because thou west faithful in the least, be thou having power over ten cities. And the second came saying, Lord, thy coin made five coins. And he said to him, And be thou over five cities. And another came saying, Lord, behold, thy coin which I have placed in a napkin: For I feared thee, for thou art an austere man: thou takest up what thou layedst not down, and thou reapest what thou didst not sow. And he said to him, Out of thy month will I judge thee, O evil servant. Thou knewest that I am an austere man, taking up what I laid not down, and reaping what I sowed not: And wherefore gavest thou not my silver to the bankers, and I having come had received it with interest? And to those standing by he said, Take away from him the coin, and give to him having the ten coins. (And they said to him, Lord, he has ten coins.) For I say to you, That to every one having shall be given; and from him not having, and what he has shall be taken away from him. But those mine enemies, not haying wished me to reign over them, bring hither, and slaughter before me.


Then shall the kingdom of the heavens be likened to ten virgins, who having taken their lanterns, went forth to the meeting of the bridegroom. And five of them were discerning, and five foolish. Those foolish having taken their lanterns, took no oil with them. read more.
And the discerning took oil in their vessels with their lanterns. And the bridegroom delaying, they all slumbered and slept. And in the middle of the night there was a cry, Behold, the bridegroom comes; go ye forth to his meeting. Then all these virgins were aroused, and put their lanterns in order. And the foolish said to the discerning, Give us of your oil; for our lights are quenched. And the discerning answered, saying, Lest it should not suffice us and you: but go ye rather to those selling, and buy for yourselves. And they, going to buy, the bridegroom came; and they prepared, went in with him to the nuptials; and the door was locked. And afterwards came also the rest of the virgins, saying, Lord, Lord, open to us. And he having answered said, Truly I say to you, I know you not. Watch, therefore, for ye know not the day, neither the hour, in which the Son of man comes.

See, watch and pray: for ye know not when the time is. As a man travelling, having left his house, and having given power to his servants, and to each his work, and he commanded the guard of the door that he should watch. Watch therefore: for ye know not when the lord of the house comes, at eve, or midnight, or cock-crowing, or morning. read more.
Lest having come suddenly he find you sleeping. And what I say to you, I say to all, Watch ye.

Let your loins be girded about, and your lights burning; And ye like men expecting their Lord, when he shall loose from the nuptials; that having come and knocked, they might quickly open to him. Happy those servants, whom the Lord having come shall find watching; truly I say to you, he will gird himself, and make them recline, and having come he will serve them. read more.
And if he should come in the second watch, and should come in the third watch, and find so, happy are those servants. And know this, that if the master of the house knew what hour the thief is coming, he had watched, and not have suffered his house to be undermined. And be ye therefore ready: for in the time which ye think not the Son of man is coming.

And they hearing these things, having added, he spake a parable, for he was near to Jerusalem, and they thought that immediately the kingdom of God is about to be rendered visible. Then he said, A certain honourable man went into a country far off to take unto himself a kingdom, and to return. And having called his ten servants, he gave them ten coins, and said to them, Attend to business, till I come. read more.
And his citizens hated him, and sent an embassy after him, saying, We wish not this to reign over us.

And another came saying, Lord, behold, thy coin which I have placed in a napkin: For I feared thee, for thou art an austere man: thou takest up what thou layedst not down, and thou reapest what thou didst not sow. And he said to him, Out of thy month will I judge thee, O evil servant. Thou knewest that I am an austere man, taking up what I laid not down, and reaping what I sowed not: And wherefore gavest thou not my silver to the bankers, and I having come had received it with interest? And to those standing by he said, Take away from him the coin, and give to him having the ten coins. (And they said to him, Lord, he has ten coins.) For I say to you, That to every one having shall be given; and from him not having, and what he has shall be taken away from him. But those mine enemies, not haying wished me to reign over them, bring hither, and slaughter before me.

And he spake to them a parable; See the fig tree, and all trees; When they should already throw forth, seeing of yourselves ye know that summer is already near. So also ye, when ye see these being, know that the kingdom of God is near. read more.
Truly I say to you, That this generation should not pass away, even till all things should be. Heaven and earth shall pass away: and my words shall not pass away. And attend to yourselves, lest at any time your hearts be loaded with dizziness, caused by excess, and drunkenness, and cares of life, and that day come upon you unexpectedly. For as a snare shall it come upon all remaining upon the face of all, the earth. Watch therefore, in all time praying, that ye be deemed worthy to escape all these about to be, and to stand before the Son of man.


For if our heart condemn us, for God is greater than our heart, and knows all things.

Therefore thou art inexcusable, O man, every one judging: for in what thou judgest another, thou condemnest thyself; for thou judging doest the same.

If I shall be just, my mouth shall condemn me: I am blameless, and he will declare me perverse.

And they will cause their tongue to falter upon themselves: all looking upon them shall be moved.

Wherefore ye bear testimony to yourselves, that ye are the sons of those having slain the prophets.

And he said to him, Out of thy month will I judge thee, O evil servant. Thou knewest that I am an austere man, taking up what I laid not down, and reaping what I sowed not:

And they having heard, and being convicted by consciousness, went out one by one, beginning from the eldest even to the last; and Jesus was left alone, and the woman standing in the midst.


And they hearing these things, having added, he spake a parable, for he was near to Jerusalem, and they thought that immediately the kingdom of God is about to be rendered visible.

For the kingdom of the heavens is like to a man, master of a house, who went out as soon as morning to hire workmen for his vineyard. And having agreed for a drachma a day, he sent them to his vineyard. And having gone out about the third hour, he saw others standing idle in the market-place, read more.
And he says to them, Retire ye also into the vineyard, and whatever should be just I will give you: and they departed. Again, having gone out about the sixth and ninth hour, he did likewise. And about the eleventh hour, having gone out, he found others standing idle, and he says to them, Why stand ye here idle the whole day? They say to him, That none has hired us. He says to them, Retire also to the vineyard; and whatever be just, ye shall receive. And it being evening, the lord of the vineyard says to his steward, Call the workmen, and give back to them the wages, beginning from the last even to the first. And they of the eleventh hour having come, thereupon received a drachma. And the first, having come, thought that they will receive more; and they also received thereupon a drachma. And having received, they murmured against the master of the house, Saying, That these last worked one hour, and thou hast made them equal to us, having borne the burden and heat of the day. And he, having answered, said to one of them, Friend, I injure thee not; didst not thou agree with me for a drachma? Take thine and retire: and I will to give to this last, as also to thee. Is it not lawful for me to do what I will with my things? Or is thine eye evil because I am good So shall the last be first, and the first last; for many are called, but few chosen.

Another parable set he before them, saying, The kingdom of the heavens was made like a man sowing good seed in his field: And in men's sleeping, his enemy came and sowed tares in the midst of the wheat, and went away. And when the grass sprouted up and made fruit, then appeared the tares also. read more.
And the servants of the master of the house having come, said to him, Lord, didst thou not sow good seed in thy field whence therefore has it tares? And he said to them, A man, an enemy, has done this: and his servants said to him, Wilt thou therefore we, having departed, should gather them And he said, No; lest gathering the tares, ye root up the wheat together with them. Suffer both to grow together till harvest; and in time of harvest I will say to the reapers, Gather first the tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them; and gather the wheat into my barn. Another parable set he before them, saying, The kingdom of the heavens is like a kernel of mustard, which a man taking, sowed in his field: Which truly is less than all seeds; but when it has grown, it is greater than vegetables, and becomes a tree, so that the flying things of heaven come and lodge in its young shoots. Another parable spake he to them; The kingdom of the heavens is like to leaven, which a woman having taken, hid in three measures of wheaten flour, till the whole was leavened. All these things spake Jesus in parables to the crowds; and without a parable spake he not to them. So that that spoken by the prophet might be filled up; saying, I will open my mouth in parables; I will declare things having been hid from the foundation of the world. Then Jesus having dismissed the crowds, went into the house; and his disciples came to him, saying, Explain to us the parable of the tares of the field. And he having answered, said to them, He sowing 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 tares are the sons of the evil one; And the enemy having sowed them is the devil; and the harvest is the end of time; and the reapers are the messengers. As therefore the tares are gathered together and burnt in fire; so shall it be in the end of this time. The Son of man shall send forth his messengers, and they shall gather out of his kingdom all scandals, and those doing iniquity; And they shall cast them into a furnace of fire; there shall there be weeping and gnashing of teeth. Then shall the just emit a brilliant light as the sun in the kingdom of their Father. He having ears to hear, let him hear. Again, the kingdom of the heavens is like to a treasure hid in the field; which a man finding, concealed, and from his joy, he retires, and all things which he has he sells, and he purchases that field. Again, the kingdom of the heavens is like to a man, a wholesale merchant, seeking beautiful pearls: Who, finding one pearl of great value, having departed, he sold all things which he had, and purchased it. Again, the kingdom of the heavens is like to a large sweep-net, cast into the sea, and having gathered of every kind: Which, when it was filled, having raised up upon the shore, and having set down, they gathered the good things into vessels, and the rotten things they cast without. So shall it be in the end of time; the messengers shall come forth, and separate the evil from the midst of the just, And they shall cast them into a furnace of fire; there shall there be weeping and gnashing of teeth. Jesus says to them, Have ye understood all these? They say to him, Yes, Lord. And he said to them, Therefore every scribe, having been a disciple in the kingdom of the heavens, is like to a man, master of a house, who casts out from his treasure new things and old.

Therefore the kingdom of the heavens was likened to a man, the king, who wished to lift up the word together with his servants. And he having begun to settle accounts, one was brought him, a debtor of ten thousand talents. And he not having to give back, his lord ordered him to be sold, and his wife and his children, and all which he had also to be given back. read more.
Then the servant, having fallen, worshipped him, saying, Lord, be slow to anger towards me, and I will give back all to thee. And the lord of that servant, having felt compassion, loosed him, and let go to him the money lent. But that servant having come, found one of his fellow-servants who owed him one hundred drachmas, and having seized, he choked him, saying, Give back to me what thou owest. Then his fellow-servant having fallen at his feet besought him, saying, Be slow to anger towards me, and I will give back all to thee. . And he would not; but having departed he cast him into prison till he should give back that being owed. And his fellow-servants having seen the thing done, were greatly grieved, and having come, made known to their lord all things done. Then his lord, having called him, said unto him, O thou evil servant, I let go to you all that debt since thou besoughtest me: Oughtest thou not also to pity thy fellow-servant, as I also pitied thee And his lord having become angry, delivered him to the torturers even till he should give back all being owed to him. So also will my heavenly Father do to you, if ye let not go each to his brother from your hearts their falls.

And a certain of them having reclined together, having heard these things, said to him, Happy he who shall eat bread in the kingdom of God. And he said to him, A certain man made a great supper and called many; And he sent his servant at the hour of the supper to say to the called, Come; for all things are already prepared. read more.
And from one they all began to conciliate. The first said to him, I bought a field, and have necessity to go and see it: I ask thee, have me pardoned. And another said, I have bought five yoke of oxen, and I go to prove them: I ask thee, have me pardoned. And another said, I have married wife, and therefore I cannot come. And approaching, that servant announced to his lord these things. Then the master of the house, angry, said to his servant, Go forth quickly into the streets and quarters of the city, and bring in hither the poor, the maimed, the lame, and the blind. And the servant said, Lord, it has been done as thou hest commanded, and yet there is place. And the lord said to the servant, Go out into the ways and hedges, and compel to come in, that my house may be filled up. For I say to you, That none of those men called shall taste of my supper.

Then shall the kingdom of the heavens be likened to ten virgins, who having taken their lanterns, went forth to the meeting of the bridegroom. And five of them were discerning, and five foolish. Those foolish having taken their lanterns, took no oil with them. read more.
And the discerning took oil in their vessels with their lanterns. And the bridegroom delaying, they all slumbered and slept. And in the middle of the night there was a cry, Behold, the bridegroom comes; go ye forth to his meeting. Then all these virgins were aroused, and put their lanterns in order. And the foolish said to the discerning, Give us of your oil; for our lights are quenched. And the discerning answered, saying, Lest it should not suffice us and you: but go ye rather to those selling, and buy for yourselves. And they, going to buy, the bridegroom came; and they prepared, went in with him to the nuptials; and the door was locked. And afterwards came also the rest of the virgins, saying, Lord, Lord, open to us. And he having answered said, Truly I say to you, I know you not. Watch, therefore, for ye know not the day, neither the hour, in which the Son of man comes. For as a man going abroad, called his own servants, and delivered them his possessions: And to one he truly gave five talents, and to one, two, and to one, one; to each according to his own power; and he quickly went abroad. And he having received five talents, having gone, worked with them, and he made other five talents. Likewise he having the two also, gained he also other two. And he having received one, having departed, dug in the earth, and concealed his lord's silver. And after much time the lord of these servants comes, and lifts up the word with them. And he having received the five talents, having come near, brought the other five talents, saying, Lord, thou deliveredst me five talents: and I have gained other five talents. And his lord said to him, Well, good and faithful servant: thou west faithful over a few things, I will set thee over many; enter into the joy of thy lord. And he also having received the two talents, having come near said, Lord, thou deliveredst me two talents; see, I gained two other talents to them. His lord said to him, Well, good and faithful servant; thou wast faithful over a few things, I will set thee over many; enter into the joy of thy lord. And he also having received one talent, having come near, said, Lord, I knew thee that thou art a hard man, reaping where thou sowedst not, and gathering where thou scatteredst not: And having been afraid, having gone away, I concealed thy talent in the earth; see, thou hast thine own. And his lord having answered, said to him, O evil and slothful servant, thou knewest that I reap where I sowed not, and gather where I scattered not: Thou therefore oughtest to have cast my silver to the money changers, and I having come, had received mine own, with interest Therefore take the talent away from him, and give him having ten talents. For to every one having shall be given, and he shall be in abundance: and from him not having, also what he has shall be taken away from him. And cast ye the useless servant into darkness without; weeping shall be there, and gnashing of teeth.

The kingdom of the heavens was likened to a man, a king, who made a nuptial feast for his son. And he sent his servants to those having been called to the nuptial feast: and they would not come. And again, he sent other servants, saying, Say to the called: Behold, I have prepared my supper; my bulls and stall-fed killed, and all prepared: come to the nuptials. read more.
And they, not having heeded, departed, one truly to his own field, and one to his traffic: And the rest, having seized his servants, were insolent, and killed them. And the king, having heard, was angry, and having sent his armies, destroyed those murderers, and burned their city. Then says he to his servants, Truly the nuptial feast is prepared, and those called were not worthy. Go ye, therefore, to the passages of the ways, and as many as ye should find, call to the nuptial feast. And those servants, having come to the ways, gathered together all, as many as they found, also both the evil and good, and the nuptial feast was filled with the reclining. And the king, having come in to behold the reclining, saw there a man not clad with the garment of the wedding: And he says to him, Friend, how camest thou in here, not having a garment of the nuptial feast? And he was muzzled. Then said the king to his servants, Having bound his feet and hands, take him away, and cast ye him into outer darkness; weeping shall be there, and gnashing of teeth. For many are called, and few chosen.

And he said to them, Much less the light comes that it be set under a bushel, or under a bed; that it be not set upon a candlestick. For not anything is hid, which should not be manifested; neither was concealed, but that it should come clear. Whoever has ears to hear, let him hear. read more.
And he said to them, See ye how ye hear: with what measure ye measure, shall be measured to you: and to you hearing, shall be added. For whoever should have, to him shall be given: and whoever has not, also what he has shall be taken away from him. And he said, So is the kingdom of God, as if a man should cast seed upon the earth; And he sleep, and should rise night and day, and the seed should sprout, and be raised; how, he knows not. For the earth bears fruit spontaneously; first the grass, then the ear, then the full wheat in the ear. But when the fruit should yield, quickly he sends the sickle, for the harvest is brought forward. And he said, To what should we liken the kingdom of God? or in what parable should we hold it forth? As a kernel of mustard, which, when it be sown in the earth, is smaller than all seeds upon the earth: And when it be sown, it comes up and is greater than all vegetables, and makes great young shoots; so that the flying things of heaven can encamp under its shadow. And with many such parables spake he the word to them, as they were able to hear. And without a parable spake he not to them: and apart, he solved all to his disciples.

And he said, To what is the kingdom of God like? and to what shall I liken it? It is like a kernel of mustard, which a man having taken, cast into his garden; and it grew, and became into a great tree; and the fowls of heaven encamped in its young shoots. And again he said, To what shall I liken the kingdom of God? read more.
It is like leaven, which a woman having taken, hid in three measures of wheaten flour, until the whole was leavened.


Then he said, A certain honourable man went into a country far off to take unto himself a kingdom, and to return. And having called his ten servants, he gave them ten coins, and said to them, Attend to business, till I come. And his citizens hated him, and sent an embassy after him, saying, We wish not this to reign over us. read more.
And it was in his coming back, having received the kingdom, and he spake to have these servants called to him, to whom he gave the silver, that he might know who had attended to any business. And the first approached, saying, Lord, thy coin has gained ten coins. And he said to him, Well, good servant: because thou west faithful in the least, be thou having power over ten cities. And the second came saying, Lord, thy coin made five coins. And he said to him, And be thou over five cities. And another came saying, Lord, behold, thy coin which I have placed in a napkin: For I feared thee, for thou art an austere man: thou takest up what thou layedst not down, and thou reapest what thou didst not sow. And he said to him, Out of thy month will I judge thee, O evil servant. Thou knewest that I am an austere man, taking up what I laid not down, and reaping what I sowed not: And wherefore gavest thou not my silver to the bankers, and I having come had received it with interest? And to those standing by he said, Take away from him the coin, and give to him having the ten coins. (And they said to him, Lord, he has ten coins.) For I say to you, That to every one having shall be given; and from him not having, and what he has shall be taken away from him. But those mine enemies, not haying wished me to reign over them, bring hither, and slaughter before me.

For as a man going abroad, called his own servants, and delivered them his possessions: And to one he truly gave five talents, and to one, two, and to one, one; to each according to his own power; and he quickly went abroad. And he having received five talents, having gone, worked with them, and he made other five talents. read more.
Likewise he having the two also, gained he also other two. And he having received one, having departed, dug in the earth, and concealed his lord's silver. And after much time the lord of these servants comes, and lifts up the word with them. And he having received the five talents, having come near, brought the other five talents, saying, Lord, thou deliveredst me five talents: and I have gained other five talents. And his lord said to him, Well, good and faithful servant: thou west faithful over a few things, I will set thee over many; enter into the joy of thy lord. And he also having received the two talents, having come near said, Lord, thou deliveredst me two talents; see, I gained two other talents to them. His lord said to him, Well, good and faithful servant; thou wast faithful over a few things, I will set thee over many; enter into the joy of thy lord. And he also having received one talent, having come near, said, Lord, I knew thee that thou art a hard man, reaping where thou sowedst not, and gathering where thou scatteredst not: And having been afraid, having gone away, I concealed thy talent in the earth; see, thou hast thine own. And his lord having answered, said to him, O evil and slothful servant, thou knewest that I reap where I sowed not, and gather where I scattered not: Thou therefore oughtest to have cast my silver to the money changers, and I having come, had received mine own, with interest Therefore take the talent away from him, and give him having ten talents. For to every one having shall be given, and he shall be in abundance: and from him not having, also what he has shall be taken away from him. And cast ye the useless servant into darkness without; weeping shall be there, and gnashing of teeth.


And he said to him, A certain man made a great supper and called many; And he sent his servant at the hour of the supper to say to the called, Come; for all things are already prepared. And from one they all began to conciliate. The first said to him, I bought a field, and have necessity to go and see it: I ask thee, have me pardoned. read more.
And another said, I have bought five yoke of oxen, and I go to prove them: I ask thee, have me pardoned. And another said, I have married wife, and therefore I cannot come. And approaching, that servant announced to his lord these things. Then the master of the house, angry, said to his servant, Go forth quickly into the streets and quarters of the city, and bring in hither the poor, the maimed, the lame, and the blind. And the servant said, Lord, it has been done as thou hest commanded, and yet there is place. And the lord said to the servant, Go out into the ways and hedges, and compel to come in, that my house may be filled up. For I say to you, That none of those men called shall taste of my supper.

Then he said, A certain honourable man went into a country far off to take unto himself a kingdom, and to return.

Then began he to blame the cities in which were his greatest powers, because they repented not. Woe to thee, Chorazin! woe to thee, Bethsaida! for if in Tyre and Sidon had been the powers being in you, long since had they repented in sackcloth and ashes. But I say to you, To Tyre and Sidon shall it be more supportable in the day of judgment, than to you. read more.
And thou, Capernaum, lifted up even to heaven, thou shalt he brought down to hades: for if in the people of Sodom had been the powers being in thee, they had remained till this day. But I say to you, That to the land of Sodom it shall be more supportable in the day of judgment, than to you.

With their sheep and with their oxen they will go to seek Jehovah; and they shall not find; he withdrew himself from them.

Because I called and ye will refuse; I stretched forth my hands, and none attending; And ye will reject all my counsels, and ye desired not my reproofs: Also I will laugh at your ruin: I will deride in the coming of your terror; read more.
In your terror coming as a destroying tempest, and your ruin shall come as a whirlwind; in the coming upon you of straits and distress. Then they shall call upon me, and I will not answer; they shall seek me, and shall not find me; For that they hated knowledge, and chose not the fear of Jehovah: They desired not for my counsels: and derided all my reproofs. And they shall eat from the fruit of their way, and be filled with their purposes For the turning away of the simple shall slay them, and the error of the foolish shall destroy them. And he hearing to me shall dwell in confidence, and being quiet from fear of evil.

And if thou hast admonished the unjust one, and he turned not back from his evil and from his way of injustice; he shall die in his iniquity and thou deliveredst thy soul.


And that servant having known his lord's will, and not prepared, neither having done his will, shall be skinned with many.

And the word of Jehovah will be to me, saying, Son of man, speak to the sons of thy people and say to them, A land, when I shall bring the sword upon her, and the people of the land took one man from their extremities, and they gave him to them for a watchman. And he saw the sword coming upon the land, and he struck upon the trumpet and warned the people; read more.
And he hearing, heard the voice of the trumpet, and he took not warning; and the sword will come and take him. away; his blood shall be upon his head. He heard the voice of the trumpet, and he took not warning; his blood shall be upon him. He taking warning delivered his soul. And if the watchman shall see the sword coming, and he struck not upon the trumpet, and the people were not warned; and the sword shall come and take a soul from them, he was taken away in his iniquity, and his blood I will seek from the watchman's hand. And thou son of man, I gave thee a watchman to the house of Israel; and thou heardest the word from my mouth, and thou didst warn them from me. In my saying to the, unjust, O unjust one, dying, thou shalt die; and thou spakest not to warn the unjust from his way, that unjust one shall die in his iniquity, and I will seek his blood from thine hand. And thou, if thou warnedst the unjust from his way to turn back from it, and be turned not back from his way, he shall die in his iniquity; and thou didst deliver thy soul. And thou son of man, say to the house of Israel: Thus ye said, saying, If our transgressions and our sins be upon us, and we pining away in them, and how shall we live? Say to them, I live, says the Lord Jehovah, if I shall delight in the death of the unjust; but in the turning back of the unjust one from his way, and he lived: turn back, turn back from your evil ways: and wherefore will ye die, O house of Israel? And thou, son of man, say to the sons of my people, The justice of the just shall not deliver him in the day of his transgression: and the injustice of the unjust, he shall not stumble in it in the day of his turning back from his injustice; and the just shall not be able to live in the day of his sinning. In my saying to the just, living, he shall live; and he trusted upon his justice, and he did evil, all his justice shall not be remembered; and in his iniquity which he did he shall die in it And in my saying to the unjust, Dying, thou shalt die; and he turned back from his sinning and he did judgment and justice; The unjust shall turn back the pledge he shall restore the spoil, going in the laws of the living not to do evil; living, he shall live, he shall not die. All his sins which he sinned shall not be remembered to him: he did judgment and justice; living, he shall live. And the sons of my people said, The way of Jehovah will not make even: and they their way shall not make even.

And whoever should not receive you, nor hear your words, coming out of that house or that city, shake off the cloud of the dust of your feet. Verily I say to you, it shall be more supportable for the land of Sodom and Gomorrha in the day of judgment, than for that city.

Therefore, behold, I send to you prophets, and the wise, and scribes: and of them shall ye kill and crucify; and of them shall ye chastise in your assemblies, and drive out from city to city, So that all the just blood shed upon the earth might come upon you, from the blood of just Abel to the blood of Zacharias, son of Barachias, whom ye killed between the temple and altar. Truly I say to you, All these shall come upon this generation. read more.
Jerusalem, Jerusalem, killing the prophets, and stoning those sent to her; how often did I wish to gather thy children together, which manner a bird gathers together her young broods under the wings, and ye would not! Behold, your house is left to you desolate.

From the time when the master of the house should rise up, and shut the door, and ye begin to stand without, and knock at the door, saying, Lord, Lord, open to us: and having answered, he will say to you, I know not whence ye are: Then will ye begin to say, We ate and drank before thee, and thou didst teach in our streets. And he will say, I say to you, I know you not whence ye are; depart from me, all ye workmen of iniquity. read more.
Weeping shall be there and gnashing of teeth, when ye see Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, and all the prophets, in the kingdom of God, and you cast without.

Watch therefore; for ye know not what hour your Lord comes.

Who then is the faithful and discerning servant, which his lord set over his attendance, to give them food in due season Happy that servant which his lord, having come, shall find doing thus. Truly I say to you, That he shall set him over all his possessions.
