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

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,

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


Amongst which things, when the ten thousands of the multitude were gathered together, so that they were treading one upon another, he began to be saying, unto his disciples, first - Be keeping yourselves free from the leaven of the Pharisees, the which is, hypocrisy.

And, when ye may he fasting, become not ye, as the hypocrites, of sullen countenance, - for they darken their looks, that they may appear, unto men, to be fasting: Verily, I say unto you, they are getting back their reward. But, when, thou, art fasting, anoint thy head, and, thy face, wash, - that thou do not appear, unto men, to be fasting, but to thy Father who is in secret, - and, thy Father who seeth in secret, will reward thee.

When, therefore, thou mayest be doing an alms, do not sound a trumpet before thee, just as, the hypocrites, do in the synagogues and in the streets - that they may be glorified by men, - Verily, I say unto you, they are getting back their reward. But, thou, when doing an alms, let not, thy left hand, know what thy right hand is doing; that thine alms may be in secret, - and, thy Father, who seeth in secret, will give it back to thee. read more.
And, when ye may be praying, ye shall not be as the hypocrites, because they love, in the synagogues, and at the corners of the broad ways, to take their stand and pray, that they may shine before men; Verily, I say unto you, they are getting back their reward. But, thou, when thou wouldest pray, enter into thy closet, and, fastening thy door, pray unto thy Father who is in secret, - and, thy Father who seeth in secret, will reward thee. And, being at prayer, use not vain repetitions, just like the nations, - for they think, that, in their much speaking, they shall be hoard; do not, therefore, make yourselves like them, for Godyour Father knoweth of what things ye have, need, before ye ask him.

Then, there come unto Jesus from Jerusalem Pharisees and Scribes, saying - Wherefore do thy disciples transgress the tradition of the elders? for they wash not their hands, when they eat bread! But, he, answering, said unto them - Wherefore do, ye also, transgress the commandment of God for the sake of your tradition? read more.
For, God, said - Honour thy father and thy mother, and - He that revileth father or mother, let him, surely die! But, ye, say - Whosoever shall say to his father or his mother - A gift! Whatsoever, out of me, thou mightest be profited, in nowise, shall honour his father or his mother - and so ye have cancelled, the word of God, for the sake of your, tradition. Hypocrites! well prophesied concerning you, Isaiah, saying - This people, with the lips, do, honour, me, while, their heart, far off, holdeth from me; But, in vain, do they pay devotions unto me, teaching, for teachings, the commandments of men.

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

saying - Upon Moses' seat, have sat down, the Scribes and the Pharisees: All things, therefore, whatsoever they tell you, do and observe, - but, according to their works, do ye not, for they, say, and do not, perform. But they bind together heavy burdens, and lay upon men's shoulders, whereas, they, with their finger, are not willing to move them. read more.
But, all their works, they do, to be gazed at, by men, - for they make broad their amulets, and make large their fringes, And dearly love the first couch in the chief meals, and the first seats in the synagogues, And the salutations in the market-places, and to be called by men, Rabbi. 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; And, the greatest of you, shall be to you, a minister; And, whoever shall exalt himself, shall be, abased, and, whoever shall abase himself, shall be, exalted, But alas for you, Scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites; because ye are locking up the kingdom of the heavens before men, - for, ye, are not entering, neither, them who are entering, suffer ye to enter. Alas for you, Scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites: because ye compass sea and dry land, to make one convert - and, when it is done, ye make him a son of gehenna, twofold more than ye. Alas for you, blind guides! that say - Whosoever shall swear by the Temple, it is, nothing, but, whosoever shall swear by the gold of the Temple, is bound: Foolish and blind! for which is, greater, The gold, or the Temple that hath hallowed the gold? And, whosoever shall swear by the altar, it is, nothing, but, whosoever shall swear by the gift that is upon it, is bound: Blind! for which is greater, The gift, or the altar that halloweth the gift? He therefore that hath sworn by the altar, sweareth by it, and by all that is upon it; And, he that hath sworn by the Temple, sweareth by it, and by him who dwelleth therein; And, he that hath sworn by heaven, sweareth by the throne of God, and by him who sitteth thereupon. Alas for you, Scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites; because ye tithe the mint and the anise and the cummin, - and have dismissed the weightier matters of the law - the justice, the mercy, and the faith; whereas, these, it was binding, to do, and, those, not to, dismiss. Blind guides! Straining out the gnat, but, the camel, swallowing. Alas for you, Scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites; because ye cleanse the outside of the cup and of the dish, - while, within, they are full of plunder and intemperance. Blind Pharisee! cleanse, first, the inside, of the cup and of the dish, that, the outside thereof, may become, clean. Alas for you, Scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites; because ye make yourselves like sepulchres whitewashed, which, outside, indeed, appear, beautiful, but, within, are full, of dead men's bones and all uncleanness, - Thus, ye also, outside, indeed, appear to men, righteous, but, within, are full, of hypocrisy and lawlessness. Alas for you, Scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites; because ye build the sepulchres of the prophets, and adorn the monuments of the righteous, and say - If we had been in the days of our fathers, we would not have been their partners in the blood of the prophets: So that ye bear witness against yourselves, that ye are, sons, of them who murdered the prophets. And, ye, fill ye up the measure of your fathers! Serpents! broods of vipers! how should ye flee from the judgment of gehenna?

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. Now it came to pass, while he was saying these things, that a certain woman out of the multitude, lifting up her voice, said unto him - Happy the womb that bare thee! And the breasts which thou didst suck! But, he, said - Yea rather! - Happy they who hear the word of God, and observe it! And, as the multitudes were thronging together, he began to be saying - This generation, is, a wicked generation: A sign, it is seeking, and, a sign, shall not be given it, save the sign of Jonah. For, according as, Jonah, became, unto the Ninevites, a sign, so, shall be, the Son of Man also, unto this generation. The queen of the south, will rise up, in the judgment, with the men of this generation, and will condemn them; because she came out of the ends of the earth to hear the wisdom of Solomon, - and lo! something more than Solomon, here. Men of Nineveh, will rise up, in the judgment, with this generation, and will condemn it; because they repented into the proclamation of Jonah, - and lo! something more than Jonah, here. No one, having lighted, a lamp, into a covered place, a putteth it, nor, under the measure; but upon the lampstand, that they who enter may see, the light. The lamp of thy body, is thine eye: Whensoever, thine eye, may be, single, even the whole of thy body, is, lighted up; but, whensoever it may be, useless, even thy body, is darkened. Be looking to it, therefore, lest, the light that is in thee, be, darkness. If, therefore, thy whole body, is lighted up, not having any part darkened, the whole, shall be lighted up, as whensoever, the lamp, with its radiance, may be giving thee light. And, when he had spoken, a Pharisee was requesting him that he would dine with him; and, entering, he reclined. And, the Pharisee, beholding, marvelled that he was not, first, immersed, before the dinner. And the Lord said unto him: Now, ye, the Pharisees, the outside of the cup and of the tray, do make pure; but, your inward part, is full of plunder and wickedness. Simple ones! Did not, he who made the outside, the inside also, make? Notwithstanding, as to the things within, give alms, and lo! everything, is, pure unto you. But alas for you, the Pharisees! because ye tithe the mint, and the rue, and every garden herb, and pass by justice, and the love of God. But, these things, it was biding to do, and, those, not to pass by. Alas for you, the Pharisees! because ye love the first seats in the synagogues, and the salutations in the market-places! Alas for you! because ye are as the secret tombs: even the men that are walking above them, know it not. And, making answer, one of the Lawyers saith unto him, Teacher! these things, saying, us also, dost thou insult! And, he, said - And, for you, the lawyers, alas! because ye lade men with burdens hard to be borne, and, yourselves, with one of your fingers, touch not the burdens. Alas for you! because ye build the tombs of the prophets, and your fathers slew them! Hence, witnesses, are ye, and find consenting pleasure in the works of your fathers: because, they, indeed, slew them, and, ye, are building, their tombs . For this cause, the Wisdom of God hath said - I will send forth, unto them, prophets and apostles, - and, some from among them, will they slay, and, some persecute: That the blood of all the prophets which hath been shed from the foundation of the world, may be sought out, from this generation, - From the blood of Abel, unto the blood of Zachariah who was destroyed betwixt the altar and the house; Yea! I say unto you - It shall be sought out from this generation. Alas for you, the lawyers! because ye took away the key of knowledge: yourselves, entered not, and, them who were entering, ye hindered. And, when, from thence, he came out, the Scribes and the Pharisees began, with vehemence, to be hemming him in, and trying to make him speak off-hand concerning many things, - lying in wait for him, to catch something out of his mouth.

But all the tax-collectors and the sinners were, unto him, drawing near, to be hearkening unto him; and both the Pharisees and the Scribes were murmuring, saying, This man, unto sinners, giveth welcome, and eateth with them. And he spake unto them this parable, saying - read more.
What man from among you, having a hundred sheep, and losing, from among them, one, doth not leave the ninety-nine in the wilderness and go his way after the lost one, until he find it? And, finding it, he layeth it upon his shoulders, rejoicing; and, coming unto his house, calleth together the friends and the neighbours, saying unto them - Rejoice with me! because I have found my sheep that was lost! I say unto you - Thus, joy in heaven, will there be, over one sinner repenting, rather than over ninety-nine righteous persons, who indeed have, no need, of repentance. Or, what woman, having, ten pieces of silver, if she lose one piece, doth not light a lamp, and sweep the house, and seek carefully, until she find it? And, having found it, she calleth together her female friends and neighbours, saying - Rejoice with me! because I have found the piece of silver which I had lost.


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


The High-priests and Pharisees, therefore, brought together a high-council, and were saying - What are we to do, in that, this man, doeth, many signs?

From that day, therefore, they took counsel, that they might put him to death.

Now the High-priests and the Pharisees had given commands, that, if anyone came to know where he was, he should inform them , so that they might seize him.


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

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

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