What I tell you in darkness, speak in the light, and what you hear in the ear, preach on the house-tops. And fear not those who kill the body and are not able to kill the soul; but rather fear him who is able to destroy both soul and body in hell. Are not two sparrows sold for an assarion [1.5 mills]? and one of them cannot fall to the ground without your Father. read more.
Even the hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear not, therefore, you are of more value than many sparrows. Every one, therefore, who shall confess me before men, him will I also confess before my Father in heaven; and whoever denies me before men, him will I also deny before my Father in heaven.



Who is a liar but he that denies that Jesus is the Christ? This is the anti-christ, [the man that] denies the Father and the Son.





But Peter sat without in the court; and a female servant came to him, saying, You also were with Jesus the Galilean. But he denied it before all, saying, I know not what you say.










These twelve Jesus sent out and charged them, saying; Go not into a way of gentiles, and enter not into a city of Samaritans, but go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel; and as you go, preach, saying, The kingdom of Heaven is at hand. read more.
Cure the sick, cleanse lepers, cast out demons; you have received gratuitously, gratuitously give. Take not gold, nor silver, nor copper for your purses, nor a provision sack for the way, nor two coats, nor shoes, nor staves; for the laborer is worthy of his support; and into whatever city or village you enter, inquire who in it is worthy, and there remain till you leave. And when you go into a house, salute it; and if the house is worthy, your blessing shall come upon it; but if the house is not worthy, your blessing shall return to you. And if any one does not receive you, nor hear your words, when you go out of that house or that city, shake off the dust of your feet. I tell you truly, it shall be more tolerable for the land of Sodom and Gomorrah in a day of judgment, than for that city. Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves; be therefore wise as serpents and harmless as doves. But beware of men; for they will deliver you to Sanhedrims, and scourge you in their synagogues, and you shall be brought before governors, and kings, for my sake, for a testimony to them and the nations. But when they have delivered you up be not anxious how you shall speak, or what you shall say, for it shall be given you in that hour what to say; for it is not you that speak, but the Spirit of your Father that speaks in you. And a brother shall deliver a brother to death, and a father a son; and children shall rise up against their parents and put them to death; and you shall be hated by all men for my sake. But he that endures to the end shall be saved. And when they persecute you in one city, flee to another. For I tell you truly, that you will not finish the cities of Israel till the Son of man shall come. A disciple is not above his teacher, nor a servant above his master. It is sufficient for the disciple to be as his teacher, and the servant as his master. If they have called the master of the house Beelzebul, how much more will they call the members of his family by that name. Fear them not, therefore, for there is nothing concealed that shall not be revealed, nor hid that shall not be known. What I tell you in darkness, speak in the light, and what you hear in the ear, preach on the house-tops. And fear not those who kill the body and are not able to kill the soul; but rather fear him who is able to destroy both soul and body in hell. Are not two sparrows sold for an assarion [1.5 mills]? and one of them cannot fall to the ground without your Father. Even the hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear not, therefore, you are of more value than many sparrows. Every one, therefore, who shall confess me before men, him will I also confess before my Father in heaven; and whoever denies me before men, him will I also deny before my Father in heaven. Think not that I have come to send peace on the earth. I have not come to send peace, but a sword. I have come to set a man at variance against his father, and a daughter against her mother, and a bride against her mother-in-law; and a man's enemies shall be those of his own house. He that loves father or mother more than me is not worthy of me; and he that loves son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me; and he that does not take up his cross and follow me is not worthy of me. He that finds his life shall lose it, and he that loses his life for my sake shall find it. He that receives you receives me, and he that receives me receives him that sent me. He that receives a prophet in the name of a prophet shall receive a prophet's reward, and he that receives a righteous man in the name of a righteous man shall receive a righteous man's reward. And whoever shall give one of these little ones a cup of cold water only, in the name of a disciple, I tell you truly, he shall by no means lose his reward.

And whatever place will not receive you, nor hear you, when you go out thence shake off the dust which is under your feet for a testimony to them.

And after these things the Lord designated seventy others also, and sent them out, two by two, before his face, into every city and place where he was about to come. And he said to them, The harvest indeed is great, but the laborers few; pray, therefore, the Lord of the harvest to thrust out laborers into his harvest. Go; behold I send you as lambs in the midst of wolves. read more.
Carry neither a purse, nor provision sack, nor sandals; and salute no one by the way. And into whatever house you enter, first say, Peace to this house! And if a son of peace is there, your peace shall rest upon him; but if not, it shall return to you. And in the same house remain, eating and drinking the things with them; for the laborer is worthy of his reward. Go not about from house to house. And into whatever city you enter, and they receive you, eat what is set before you; and cure the sick in it, and say to them, The kingdom of God has come nigh to you. And into whatever city you enter, and they receive you not, going out into its streets, say, Even the dust of your city which adheres to our feet we wipe off for you; but know this, that the kingdom of God is at hand. I tell you, it shall be more tolerable for Sodom in that day than for that city. Woe to you, Chorazin! Woe to you, Bethsaida! For if the mighty works had been done in Tyre and Sidon which have been done in you, they would long ago have changed their minds, sitting in sackcloth and ashes. But it shall be more tolerable for Tyre and Sidon in the judgment, than for you. And you, Capernaum, even to heaven will you be exalted? even to hades shall you be cast down. He that hears you, hears me; and he that rejects you, rejects me; and he that rejects me, rejects him that sent me.

This charge I commit to you, son Timothy, according to the prophecies which went before concerning you, that by them you may perform an honorable service, having faith and a good conscience, which some having cast away have suffered shipwreck of the faith; of whom are Hymenaeus and Alexander, whom I delivered to Satan, that they may learn not to blaspheme.

Rebuke not an aged man, but entreat him as a father, the younger men as brothers, the aged women as mothers, the younger as sisters, with all purity. Support the widows who are widows indeed. read more.
But if any widow has children or relatives, let them learn first to support their family and to make returns to their parents, for this is acceptable in the sight of God. But one that is a widow indeed and alone hopes in God, and continues in petitions and prayers night and day; but a woman that lives voluptuously is dead while she lives. And command these things, that they be blameless. And if any one provides not for his own, and especially for those of his own house, he has denied the faith, and is worse than an unbeliever. Let not a widow be enrolled under sixty years of age, a wife of one husband, well reputed for good works, if she has brought up children, if she has exercised hospitality, if she has washed the saints' feet, if she has relieved the distressed, if she has pursued every good work. But reject the younger widows; for when they fall into pleasure to the neglect of Christ, they wish to marry, being condemned because they have rejected the first faith; and at the same time also, being idle, they learn to go from house to house, and not only are they idle, they are also tattlers and mischief makers, saying what they ought not. I wish therefore the younger women to marry, bear children, keep house, give no occasion of reproach to the enemy; for some have already turned back after Satan. If any faithful man or faithful woman has widows, let them give them relief, and let not the church be burdened, that it may be able to relieve those really widows. Let the elders who rule well be accounted worthy of a double compensation, especially those who labor in word and teaching. For the Scripture says, You shall not muzzle the ox that threshes; and, The laborer is worthy of his reward. Against an elder receive not an accusation, except by two or three witnesses. Those that sin, rebuke before all, that others also may fear. I charge you before God, and Jesus Christ, and the elect angels, that you keep these things without prejudice, doing nothing from partiality. Lay hands suddenly on no man, neither partake of others' sins. Keep yourself pure.

For which cause I admonish you to stir up the gift of God which is in you through the imposition of my hands. For God gave us not a spirit of fear, but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind. Be not ashamed therefore of the testimony of our Lord, nor of me his prisoner, but endure affliction with us in the gospel according to the power of God, read more.
who saved us, and called us with a holy calling, not according to our works, but according to his purpose and grace given us in Christ Jesus from eternity, but made known now through the appearing of our Saviour Jesus Christ, who destroyed death, and brought life and immortality to light through the gospel, of which I was made a herald, and an apostle, and a teacher of the nations; for which cause I suffer these things; but I am not ashamed; for I know in whom I have believed, and am persuaded that he is able to keep my trust to that day. Retain the form of sound words which you heard from me in faith and the love in Christ Jesus.

I earnestly charge you before God and Christ Jesus who is about to judge the living and dead, and [by] his appearing and his kingdom, preach the word, press it in season, out of season, reprove, rebuke, exhort, with all long-suffering and instruction; for the time will come when they will not endure sound instruction, but will accumulate for themselves teachers according to their desires, pleasing their ear, read more.
and they will turn away their ears from the truth, and be turned to myths. But do you be sober in all things, endure evil, do the work of an evangelist, perform fully your ministry. For I am already being offered, and the time of my departure has come. I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith; henceforth there is laid up for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge will give me in that day, and not me only but all who love his appearing.





And if any one does not receive you, nor hear your words, when you go out of that house or that city, shake off the dust of your feet. I tell you truly, it shall be more tolerable for the land of Sodom and Gomorrah in a day of judgment, than for that city. Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves; be therefore wise as serpents and harmless as doves. read more.
But beware of men; for they will deliver you to Sanhedrims, and scourge you in their synagogues, and you shall be brought before governors, and kings, for my sake, for a testimony to them and the nations. But when they have delivered you up be not anxious how you shall speak, or what you shall say, for it shall be given you in that hour what to say; for it is not you that speak, but the Spirit of your Father that speaks in you. And a brother shall deliver a brother to death, and a father a son; and children shall rise up against their parents and put them to death; and you shall be hated by all men for my sake. But he that endures to the end shall be saved. And when they persecute you in one city, flee to another. For I tell you truly, that you will not finish the cities of Israel till the Son of man shall come. A disciple is not above his teacher, nor a servant above his master.

What I tell you in darkness, speak in the light, and what you hear in the ear, preach on the house-tops. And fear not those who kill the body and are not able to kill the soul; but rather fear him who is able to destroy both soul and body in hell. Are not two sparrows sold for an assarion [1.5 mills]? and one of them cannot fall to the ground without your Father. Even the hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear not, therefore, you are of more value than many sparrows. Every one, therefore, who shall confess me before men, him will I also confess before my Father in heaven; and whoever denies me before men, him will I also deny before my Father in heaven.

Wherefore I call you to witness this day, that I am pure from the blood of all men; for I have not kept back from declaring to you all the counsel of God.








By this you know the Spirit of God; every spirit which confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is of God, and every spirit which does not confess Jesus is not of God. And this is the [spirit] of anti-christ, of which you have heard that he is coming, and he is now in the world already.

Nevertheless, many of the rulers believed on him, but on account of the Pharisees did not confess him, lest they should be put out of the synagogues; for they loved the glory of men more than the glory of God.

Not every one that says to me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven, but he that does the will of my Father in heaven. Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in your name, and in your name cast out demons, and in your name performed many mighty works? and then will I confess to them, I never knew you; depart from me you that commit wickedness.

Every one, therefore, who shall confess me before men, him will I also confess before my Father in heaven; and whoever denies me before men, him will I also deny before my Father in heaven.

John testified of him, and cried, saying, This is the one of whom I said, He that comes after me existed before me, for he was before me. For we all have received of his fullness, and grace for grace; for the law was given by Moses, the grace and truth were by Jesus Christ. read more.
No one has ever seen God; the only Son, who is in the bosom of the Father, he declared [him].

His parents said these things because they feared the Jews; for already the Jews had agreed that if any one confessed him to be Christ, he should be put out of the synagogue; therefore his parents said, He is of age, ask him. Then they called the man who had been blind, a second time, and said to him, Give glory to God; we know that this man is a sinner. read more.
Then he answered, Whether he is a sinner I know not; one thing I know, that having been blind, I now see. Then they said to him, What did he do to you? how did he open your eyes? He answered them, I have told you already, and you did not hear; why do you wish to hear again? Do you also wish to be his disciples? They reproached him, and said, You are his disciple, but we are disciples of Moses. We know that God spoke to Moses, but we know not whence this man is. The man answered and said to them, It is a strange thing, that you know not whence he is, and he has opened my eyes. We know that God hears not sinners; but if one is a worshipper of God, and does his will, him he hears. Since the world began it has not been heard that any one opened the eyes of one born blind; unless this man was from God he would have been able to do nothing. They answered and said to him, You were born entirely in sins, and do you teach us? And they cast him without. Jesus heard that they had cast him without, and finding him he said to him, Do you believe in the Son of God? And he answered and said, Who is he, sir, that I shall believe on him? Jesus said to him, You have both seen him, and he that speaks to you is he. And he said, Lord, I believe, and worshipped him.

And Philip opening his mouth, and beginning from this Scripture, preached to him the good news of Jesus. And as they went on the way they came to a certain water, and the eunuch said, Behold water; what hinders me from being baptized? (Added verse not retained in Sawyer)

And when Silas and Timothy came from Macedonia, Paul gave himself wholly to preaching the word, testifying to the Jews Christ Jesus.

Paul said, John indeed baptized [administered] the baptism of a change of mind, telling the people to believe on him that was to come after him, that is, on Jesus. And hearing this they were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus:

For if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus, and believe with your mind that God raised him from the dead, you shall be saved; for with the mind we believe to righteousness, and with the mouth we confess to salvation. For the Scripture says, No one that believes in him shall be ashamed.






And I tell you, that whoever shall confess me before men, him will the Son of man confess before the angels of God; but he that has denied me before men, shall be denied before the angels of God.

Therefore I endure all things for the elect, that they may obtain the salvation in Christ Jesus with eternal glory. The saying is true, For if we died together we shall live together; if we endure patiently we shall reign together; if we deny him he will deny us;

Who is a liar but he that denies that Jesus is the Christ? This is the anti-christ, [the man that] denies the Father and the Son. No one that denies the Son has the Father; he that confesses the Son has the Father also.



And I tell you, that whoever shall confess me before men, him will the Son of man confess before the angels of God; but he that has denied me before men, shall be denied before the angels of God.

And great multitudes were travelling with him; and turning around he said to them, If any one comes to me, and hates not his father, and mother, and wife, and children, and brothers, and sisters, and still more his own life also, he cannot be my disciple. And whoever does not bear his cross, and come after me, cannot be my disciple. read more.
For what man of you wishing to build a tower, does not first sit down and estimate the expense, whether he has the means to finish? lest having laid its foundation, and not being able to finish, all who see ridicule him, saying, This man began to build and was not able to finish. Or what king going to engage in war with another king, does not first sit down and consult whether he is able with ten thousand to meet him that comes against him with twenty thousand? And if not, while he is yet a great way off, sending an embassy he desires conditions of peace. So, therefore, no one of you can be my disciple who does not forsake all that he has.


When therefore they had breakfasted, Jesus said to Simon Peter, Simon, son of John, do you love me more than these? He said to him, Yes, Lord, you know that I am a friend to you. He said to him, Feed my lambs. Again he said to him a second time; Simon, son of John, do you love me? He said to him, Yes, Lord, you know that I am a friend to you. He said to him, Feed my sheep. He said to him a third time; Simon, son of John, are you a friend to me? Peter was grieved that he said to him the third time, Are you a friend to me? and he said to him, Lord you know all things; you know that I am a friend to you. Jesus said to him, Feed my sheep. read more.
I tell you most truly, that when you were young you girded yourself and walked where you would; but when you become old, you shall stretch out your hands and another shall bind you and carry you where you would not; but he said this signifying by what death he should glorify God; and having said this, he said to him, Follow me.


Every one, therefore, who shall confess me before men, him will I also confess before my Father in heaven; and whoever denies me before men, him will I also deny before my Father in heaven. Think not that I have come to send peace on the earth. I have not come to send peace, but a sword. read more.
I have come to set a man at variance against his father, and a daughter against her mother, and a bride against her mother-in-law; and a man's enemies shall be those of his own house.

He that finds his life shall lose it, and he that loses his life for my sake shall find it.

If any one comes to me, and hates not his father, and mother, and wife, and children, and brothers, and sisters, and still more his own life also, he cannot be my disciple. And whoever does not bear his cross, and come after me, cannot be my disciple.


But when the Son of man comes in his glory, and all the angels with him, then shall he sit on the throne of his glory, and all the nations shall be assembled before him, and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats; and he shall place the sheep on his right hand, and the goats on his left.

For from this time there shall be five in one house divided, three against two, and two shall be divided against three; a father against a son, and a son against a father; a mother against the daughter, and a daughter against the mother; a mother-in-law against the daughter-in-law, and a daughter-in-law against the mother-in-law.

And there arose a debate among them, which of them should be the greatest. And Jesus perceiving the debate in their minds, took a little child and set it by him, and said to them, Whoever receives this little child in my name, receives me; and whoever receives me, receives him that sent me.

And John spoke to him, saying, Teacher, we saw some one casting out demons in your name, who follows not us, and we forbade him. And Jesus said, Forbid him not; for no one will perform a mighty work in my name, and be able lightly to speak evil of me.

Jesus said to him, He that is washed needs only that his feet should be washed, but is wholly pure; and you are pure, but not all. For he knew him that was to betray him; therefore, he said, You are not all pure. When, therefore, he had washed their feet, and taken his clothes and sat down again, he said to them, Do you know what I have done to you? read more.
You call me Teacher and Lord; and you say well, for I am. If I then, the Lord and the Teacher, have washed your feet, you also ought to wash one another's feet. For I have given you an example, that you also should do as I have done. I tell you most truly, the servant is not greater than his lord, nor the apostle greater than he that sent him. If you know these things, blessed are you if you do them. I speak not of you all; I know whom I have chosen; but that the Scripture may be fulfilled, He that eats bread with me has lifted up his heel against me. I tell you from this time, before it occurs, that when it occurs you may believe that I am [the Christ]. I tell you most truly, He that receives one that I send receives me; and he that receives me receives him that sent me.

IN the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. This [Word] was in the beginning with God. All things existed through him, and without him not one thing existed, which existed. read more.
In him was life, and the life was the light of men; and the light shone in darkness, and the darkness comprehended it not. There was a man, sent by God, whose name was John. This man came for a testimony, to testify of the light, that all might believe through him. He was not the light, but to testify of the light. The light was the true [light] which lights every man that comes into the world. He was in the world, and the world existed through him, and the world knew him not. He came to his own, and his own received him not. But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become sons of God, to them that believe on his name, who are born not of superior blood, nor of a will of the flesh, nor of a will of man, but of God.

I speak not of you all; I know whom I have chosen; but that the Scripture may be fulfilled, He that eats bread with me has lifted up his heel against me. I tell you from this time, before it occurs, that when it occurs you may believe that I am [the Christ]. I tell you most truly, He that receives one that I send receives me; and he that receives me receives him that sent me.

Whoever receives one such little child in my name, receives me, and whoever receives me, receives not me, but him that sent me. And John spoke to him, saying, Teacher, we saw some one casting out demons in your name, who follows not us, and we forbade him. And Jesus said, Forbid him not; for no one will perform a mighty work in my name, and be able lightly to speak evil of me.


and whoever denies me before men, him will I also deny before my Father in heaven. Think not that I have come to send peace on the earth. I have not come to send peace, but a sword. I have come to set a man at variance against his father, and a daughter against her mother, and a bride against her mother-in-law; read more.
and a man's enemies shall be those of his own house. He that loves father or mother more than me is not worthy of me; and he that loves son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me; and he that does not take up his cross and follow me is not worthy of me. He that finds his life shall lose it, and he that loses his life for my sake shall find it. He that receives you receives me, and he that receives me receives him that sent me. He that receives a prophet in the name of a prophet shall receive a prophet's reward, and he that receives a righteous man in the name of a righteous man shall receive a righteous man's reward.

Jesus said to him, He that is washed needs only that his feet should be washed, but is wholly pure; and you are pure, but not all. For he knew him that was to betray him; therefore, he said, You are not all pure. When, therefore, he had washed their feet, and taken his clothes and sat down again, he said to them, Do you know what I have done to you? read more.
You call me Teacher and Lord; and you say well, for I am. If I then, the Lord and the Teacher, have washed your feet, you also ought to wash one another's feet. For I have given you an example, that you also should do as I have done. I tell you most truly, the servant is not greater than his lord, nor the apostle greater than he that sent him. If you know these things, blessed are you if you do them. I speak not of you all; I know whom I have chosen; but that the Scripture may be fulfilled, He that eats bread with me has lifted up his heel against me. I tell you from this time, before it occurs, that when it occurs you may believe that I am [the Christ].
