Mt:01.01 The book of the generation of Jesus Christ, the son of David,
         the son of Abraham.

Mt:01.02 Abraham begat Isaac; and Isaac begat Jacob; and Jacob begat
         Judas and his brethren;

Mt:01.03 And Judas begat Phares and Zara of Thamar; and Phares begat
         Esrom; and Esrom begat Aram;

Mt:01.04 And Aram begat Aminadab; and Aminadab begat Naasson; and
         Naasson begat Salmon;

Mt:01.05 And Salmon begat Booz of Rachab; and Booz begat Obed of Ruth;
         and Obed begat Jesse;

Mt:01.06 And Jesse begat David the king; and David the king begat
         Solomon of her that had been the wife of Urias;

Mt:01.07 And Solomon begat Roboam; and Roboam begat Abia; and Abia
         begat Asa;

Mt:01.08 And Asa begat Josaphat; and Josaphat begat Joram; and Joram
         begat Ozias;

Mt:01.09 And Ozias begat Joatham; and Joatham begat Achaz; and Achaz
         begat Ezekias;

Mt:01.10 And Ezekias begat Manasses; and Manasses begat Amon; and Amon
         begat Josias;

Mt:01.11 And Josias begat Jechonias and his brethren, about the time
         they were carried away to Babylon:

Mt:01.12 And after they were brought to Babylon, Jechonias begat
         Salathiel; and Salathiel begat Zorobabel;

Mt:01.13 And Zorobabel begat Abiud; and Abiud begat Eliakim; and
         Eliakim begat Azor;

Mt:01.14 And Azor begat Sadoc; and Sadoc begat Achim; and Achim begat

Mt:01.15 And Eliud begat Eleazar; and Eleazar begat Matthan; and
         Matthan begat Jacob;

Mt:01.16 And Jacob begat Joseph the husband of Mary, of whom was born
         Jesus, who is called Christ.

Mt:01.17 So all the generations from Abraham to David are fourteen
         generations; and from David until the carrying away into
         Babylon are fourteen generations; and from the carrying away
         into Babylon unto Christ are fourteen generations.

Mt:01.18 Now the birth of Jesus Christ was on this wise: When as his
         mother Mary was espoused to Joseph, before they came together,
         she was found with child of the Holy Ghost.

Mt:01.19 Then Joseph her husband, being a just man, and not willing to
         make her a publick example, was minded to put her away

Mt:01.20 But while he thought on these things, behold, the angel of the
         LORD appeared unto him in a dream, saying, Joseph, thou son of
         David, fear not to take unto thee Mary thy wife: for that
         which is conceived in her is of the Holy Ghost.

Mt:01.21 And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name
         JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins.

Mt:01.22 Now all this was done, that it might be fulfilled which was
         spoken of the Lord by the prophet, saying,

Mt:01.23 Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a
         son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being
         interpreted is, God with us.

Mt:01.24 Then Joseph being raised from sleep did as the angel of the
         Lord had bidden him, and took unto him his wife:

Mt:01.25 And knew her not till she had brought forth her firstborn son:
         and he called his name JESUS.

Mt:02.01 Now when Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judaea in the days of
         Herod the king, behold, there came wise men from the east to

Mt:02.02 Saying, Where is he that is born King of the Jews? for we have
         seen his star in the east, and are come to worship him.

Mt:02.03 When Herod the king had heard these things, he was troubled,
         and all Jerusalem with him.

Mt:02.04 And when he had gathered all the chief priests and scribes of
         the people together, he demanded of them where Christ should
         be born.

Mt:02.05 And they said unto him, In Bethlehem of Judaea: for thus it is
         written by the prophet,

Mt:02.06 And thou Bethlehem, in the land of Juda, art not the least
         among the princes of Juda: for out of thee shall come a
         Governor, that shall rule my people Israel.

Mt:02.07 Then Herod, when he had privily called the wise men, enquired
         of them diligently what time the star appeared.

Mt:02.08 And he sent them to Bethlehem, and said, Go and search
         diligently for the young child; and when ye have found him,
         bring me word again, that I may come and worship him also.

Mt:02.09 When they had heard the king, they departed; and, lo, the
         star, which they saw in the east, went before them, till it
         came and stood over where the young child was.

Mt:02.10 When they saw the star, they rejoiced with exceeding great

Mt:02.11 And when they were come into the house, they saw the young
         child with Mary his mother, and fell down, and worshipped him:
         and when they had opened their treasures, they presented unto
         him gifts; gold, and frankincense and myrrh.

Mt:02.12 And being warned of God in a dream that they should not return
         to Herod, they departed into their own country another way.

Mt:02.13 And when they were departed, behold, the angel of the Lord
         appeareth to Joseph in a dream, saying, Arise, and take the
         young child and his mother, and flee into Egypt, and be thou
         there until I bring thee word: for Herod will seek the young
         child to destroy him.

Mt:02.14 When he arose, he took the young child and his mother by
         night, and departed into Egypt:

Mt:02.15 And was there until the death of Herod: that it might be
         fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet, saying,
         Out of Egypt have I called my son.

Mt:02.16 Then Herod, when he saw that he was mocked of the wise men,
         was exceeding wroth, and sent forth, and slew all the children
         that were in Bethlehem, and in all the coasts thereof, from
         two years old and under, according to the time which he had
         diligently enquired of the wise men.

Mt:02.17 Then was fulfilled that which was spoken by Jeremy the
         prophet, saying,

Mt:02.18 In Rama was there a voice heard, lamentation, and weeping, and
         great mourning, Rachel weeping for her children, and would not
         be comforted, because they are not.

Mt:02.19 But when Herod was dead, behold, an angel of the Lord
         appeareth in a dream to Joseph in Egypt,

Mt:02.20 Saying, Arise, and take the young child and his mother, and go
         into the land of Israel: for they are dead which sought the
         young child's life.

Mt:02.21 And he arose, and took the young child and his mother, and
         came into the land of Israel.

Mt:02.22 But when he heard that Archelaus did reign in Judaea in the
         room of his father Herod, he was afraid to go thither:
         notwithstanding, being warned of God in a dream, he turned
         aside into the parts of Galilee:

Mt:02.23 And he came and dwelt in a city called Nazareth: that it might
         be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophets, He shall be
         called a Nazarene.

Mt:03.01 In those days came John the Baptist, preaching in the
         wilderness of Judaea,

Mt:03.02 And saying, Repent ye: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.

Mt:03.03 For this is he that was spoken of by the prophet Esaias,
         saying, The voice of one crying in the wilderness, Prepare ye
         the way of the Lord, make his paths straight.

Mt:03.04 And the same John had his raiment of camel's hair, and a
         leathern girdle about his loins; and his meat was locusts and
         wild honey.

Mt:03.05 Then went out to him Jerusalem, and all Judaea, and all the
         region round about Jordan,

Mt:03.06 And were baptized of him in Jordan, confessing their sins.

Mt:03.07 But when he saw many of the Pharisees and Sadducees come to
         his baptism, he said unto them, O generation of vipers, who
         hath warned you to flee from the wrath to come?

Mt:03.08 Bring forth therefore fruits meet for repentance:

Mt:03.09 And think not to say within yourselves, We have Abraham to our
         father: for I say unto you, that God is able of these stones
         to raise up children unto Abraham.

Mt:03.10 And now also the axe is laid unto the root of the trees:
         therefore every tree which bringeth not forth good fruit is
         hewn down, and cast into the fire.

Mt:03.11 I indeed baptize you with water unto repentance: but he that
         cometh after me is mightier than I, whose shoes I am not
         worthy to bear: he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost, and
         with fire:

Mt:03.12 Whose fan is in his hand, and he will throughly purge his
         floor, and gather his wheat into the garner; but he will burn
         up the chaff with unquenchable fire.

Mt:03.13 Then cometh Jesus from Galilee to Jordan unto John, to be
         baptized of him.

Mt:03.14 But John forbad him, saying, I have need to be baptized of
         thee, and comest thou to me?

Mt:03.15 And Jesus answering said unto him, Suffer it to be so now: for
         thus it becometh us to fulfil all righteousness. Then he
         suffered him.

Mt:03.16 And Jesus, when he was baptized, went up straightway out of
         the water: and, lo, the heavens were opened unto him, and he
         saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove, and lighting
         upon him:

Mt:03.17 And lo a voice from heaven, saying, This is my beloved Son, in
         whom I am well pleased.

Mt:04.01 Then was Jesus led up of the spirit into the wilderness to be
         tempted of the devil.

Mt:04.02 And when he had fasted forty days and forty nights, he was
         afterward an hungred.

Mt:04.03 And when the tempter came to him, he said, If thou be the Son
         of God, command that these stones be made bread.

Mt:04.04 But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by
         bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the
         mouth of God.

Mt:04.05 Then the devil taketh him up into the holy city, and setteth
         him on a pinnacle of the temple,

Mt:04.06 And saith unto him, If thou be the Son of God, cast thyself
         down: for it is written, He shall give his angels charge
         concerning thee: and in their hands they shall bear thee up,
         lest at any time thou dash thy foot against a stone.

Mt:04.07 Jesus said unto him, It is written again, Thou shalt not tempt
         the Lord thy God.

Mt:04.08 Again, the devil taketh him up into an exceeding high
         mountain, and sheweth him all the kingdoms of the world, and
         the glory of them;

Mt:04.09 And saith unto him, All these things will I give thee, if thou
         wilt fall down and worship me.

Mt:04.10 Then saith Jesus unto him, Get thee hence, Satan: for it is
         written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only
         shalt thou serve.

Mt:04.11 Then the devil leaveth him, and, behold, angels came and
         ministered unto him.

Mt:04.12 Now when Jesus had heard that John was cast into prison, he
         departed into Galilee;

Mt:04.13 And leaving Nazareth, he came and dwelt in Capernaum, which is
         upon the sea coast, in the borders of Zabulon and Nephthalim:

Mt:04.14 That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Esaias the
         prophet, saying,

Mt:04.15 The land of Zabulon, and the land of Nephthalim, by the way of
         the sea, beyond Jordan, Galilee of the Gentiles;

Mt:04.16 The people which sat in darkness saw great light; and to them
         which sat in the region and shadow of death light is sprung

Mt:04.17 From that time Jesus began to preach, and to say, Repent: for
         the kingdom of heaven is at hand.

Mt:04.18 And Jesus, walking by the sea of Galilee, saw two brethren,
         Simon called Peter, and Andrew his brother, casting a net into
         the sea: for they were fishers.

Mt:04.19 And he saith unto them, Follow me, and I will make you fishers
         of men.

Mt:04.20 And they straightway left their nets, and followed him.

Mt:04.21 And going on from thence, he saw other two brethren, James the
         son of Zebedee, and John his brother, in a ship with Zebedee
         their father, mending their nets; and he called them.

Mt:04.22 And they immediately left the ship and their father, and
         followed him.

Mt:04.23 And Jesus went about all Galilee, teaching in their
         synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and
         healing all manner of sickness and all manner of disease among
         the people.

Mt:04.24 And his fame went throughout all Syria: and they brought unto
         him all sick people that were taken with divers diseases and
         torments, and those which were possessed with devils, and
         those which were lunatick, and those that had the palsy; and
         he healed them.

Mt:04.25 And there followed him great multitudes of people from
         Galilee, and from Decapolis, and from Jerusalem, and from
         Judaea, and from beyond Jordan.

Mt:05.01 And seeing the multitudes, he went up into a mountain: and
         when he was set, his disciples came unto him:

Mt:05.02 And he opened his mouth, and taught them, saying,

Mt:05.03 Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of

Mt:05.04 Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted.

Mt:05.05 Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth.

Mt:05.06 Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after
         righteousness: for they shall be filled.

Mt:05.07 Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy.

Mt:05.08 Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God.

Mt:05.09 Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the
         children of God.

Mt:05.10 Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness' sake:
         for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

Mt:05.11 Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you,
         and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my

Mt:05.12 Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in
         heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before

Mt:05.13 Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his
         savour, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good
         for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot
         of men.

Mt:05.14 Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill
         cannot be hid.

Mt:05.15 Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but
         on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the

Mt:05.16 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your
         good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.

Mt:05.17 Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets:
         I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil.

Mt:05.18 For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot
         or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be

Mt:05.19 Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least
         commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the
         least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and
         teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of

Mt:05.20 For I say unto you, That except your righteousness shall
         exceed the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, ye
         shall in no case enter into the kingdom of heaven.

Mt:05.21 Ye have heard that it was said of them of old time, Thou shalt
         not kill; and whosoever shall kill shall be in danger of the

Mt:05.22 But I say unto you, That whosoever is angry with his brother
         without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment: and
         whosoever shall say to his brother, Raca, shall be in danger
         of the council: but whosoever shall say, Thou fool, shall be
         in danger of hell fire.

Mt:05.23 Therefore if thou bring thy gift to the altar, and there
         rememberest that thy brother hath ought against thee;

Mt:05.24 Leave there thy gift before the altar, and go thy way; first
         be reconciled to thy brother, and then come and offer thy

Mt:05.25 Agree with thine adversary quickly, whiles thou art in the way
         with him; lest at any time the adversary deliver thee to the
         judge, and the judge deliver thee to the officer, and thou be
         cast into prison.

Mt:05.26 Verily I say unto thee, Thou shalt by no means come out
         thence, till thou hast paid the uttermost farthing.

Mt:05.27 Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time, Thou shalt
         not commit adultery:

Mt:05.28 But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust
         after her hath committed adultery with her already in his

Mt:05.29 And if thy right eye offend thee, pluck it out, and cast it
         from thee: for it is profitable for thee that one of thy
         members should perish, and not that thy whole body should be
         cast into hell.

Mt:05.30 And if thy right hand offend thee, cut it off, and cast it
         from thee: for it is profitable for thee that one of thy
         members should perish, and not that thy whole body should be
         cast into hell.

Mt:05.31 It hath been said, Whosoever shall put away his wife, let him
         give her a writing of divorcement:

Mt:05.32 But I say unto you, That whosoever shall put away his wife,
         saving for the cause of fornication, causeth her to commit
         adultery: and whosoever shall marry her that is divorced
         committeth adultery.

Mt:05.33 Again, ye have heard that it hath been said by them of old
         time, Thou shalt not forswear thyself, but shalt perform unto
         the Lord thine oaths:

Mt:05.34 But I say unto you, Swear not at all; neither by heaven; for
         it is God's throne:

Mt:05.35 Nor by the earth; for it is his footstool: neither by
         Jerusalem; for it is the city of the great King.

Mt:05.36 Neither shalt thou swear by thy head, because thou canst not
         make one hair white or black.

Mt:05.37 But let your communication be, Yea, yea; Nay, nay: for
         whatsoever is more than these cometh of evil.

Mt:05.38 Ye have heard that it hath been said, An eye for an eye, and a
         tooth for a tooth:

Mt:05.39 But I say unto you, That ye resist not evil: but whosoever
         shall smite thee on thy right cheek, turn to him the other

Mt:05.40 And if any man will sue thee at the law, and take away thy
         coat, let him have thy cloak also.

Mt:05.41 And whosoever shall compel thee to go a mile, go with him

Mt:05.42 Give to him that asketh thee, and from him that would borrow
         of thee turn not thou away.

Mt:05.43 Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy
         neighbour, and hate thine enemy.

Mt:05.44 But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse
         you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which
         despitefully use you, and persecute you;

Mt:05.45 That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven:
         for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and
         sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust.

Mt:05.46 For if ye love them which love you, what reward have ye? do
         not even the publicans the same?

Mt:05.47 And if ye salute your brethren only, what do ye more than
         others? do not even the publicans so?

Mt:05.48 Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in
         heaven is perfect.

Mt:06.01 Take heed that ye do not your alms before men, to be seen of
         them: otherwise ye have no reward of your Father which is in

Mt:06.02 Therefore when thou doest thine alms, do not sound a trumpet
         before thee, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the
         streets, that they may have glory of men. Verily I say unto
         you, They have their reward.

Mt:06.03 But when thou doest alms, let not thy left hand know what thy
         right hand doeth:

Mt:06.04 That thine alms may be in secret: and thy Father which seeth
         in secret himself shall reward thee openly.

Mt:06.05 And when thou prayest, thou shalt not be as the hypocrites
         are: for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and in
         the corners of the streets, that they may be seen of men.
         Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.

Mt:06.06 But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when
         thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in
         secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee

Mt:06.07 But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do:
         for they think that they shall be heard for their much

Mt:06.08 Be not ye therefore like unto them: for your Father knoweth
         what things ye have need of, before ye ask him.

Mt:06.09 After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in
         heaven, Hallowed be thy name.

Mt:06.10 Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done in earth, as it is in

Mt:06.11 Give us this day our daily bread.

Mt:06.12 And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.

Mt:06.13 And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For
         thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever.

Mt:06.14 For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father
         will also forgive you:

Mt:06.15 But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your
         Father forgive your trespasses.

Mt:06.16 Moreover when ye fast, be not, as the hypocrites, of a sad
         countenance: for they disfigure their faces, that they may
         appear unto men to fast. Verily I say unto you, They have
         their reward.

Mt:06.17 But thou, when thou fastest, anoint thine head, and wash thy

Mt:06.18 That thou appear not unto men to fast, but unto thy Father
         which is in secret: and thy Father, which seeth in secret,
         shall reward thee openly.

Mt:06.19 Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and
         rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal:

Mt:06.20 But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither
         moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break
         through nor steal:

Mt:06.21 For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.

Mt:06.22 The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be
         single, thy whole body shall be full of light.

Mt:06.23 But if thine eye be evil, thy whole body shall be full of
         darkness. If therefore the light that is in thee be darkness,
         how great is that darkness!

Mt:06.24 No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one,
         and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and
         despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.

Mt:06.25 Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what
         ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body,
         what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the
         body than raiment?

Mt:06.26 Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they
         reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth
         them. Are ye not much better than they?

Mt:06.27 Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his

Mt:06.28 And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of
         the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin:

Mt:06.29 And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was
         not arrayed like one of these.

Mt:06.30 Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which to
         day is, and to morrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much
         more clothe you, O ye of little faith?

Mt:06.31 Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What
         shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed?

Mt:06.32 (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your
         heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things.

Mt:06.33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness;
         and all these things shall be added unto you.

Mt:06.34 Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall
         take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day
         is the evil thereof.

Mt:07.01 Judge not, that ye be not judged.

Mt:07.02 For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with
         what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again.

Mt:07.03 And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother's eye,
         but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye?

Mt:07.04 Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the mote
         out of thine eye; and, behold, a beam is in thine own eye?

Mt:07.05 Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye;
         and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of
         thy brother's eye.

Mt:07.06 Give not that which is holy unto the dogs, neither cast ye
         your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their
         feet, and turn again and rend you.

Mt:07.07 Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find;
         knock, and it shall be opened unto you:

Mt:07.08 For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh
         findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.

Mt:07.09 Or what man is there of you, whom if his son ask bread, will
         he give him a stone?

Mt:07.10 Or if he ask a fish, will he give him a serpent?

Mt:07.11 If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your
         children, how much more shall your Father which is in heaven
         give good things to them that ask him?

Mt:07.12 Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to
         you, do ye even so to them: for this is the law and the

Mt:07.13 Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and
         broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there
         be which go in thereat:

Mt:07.14 Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which
         leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.

Mt:07.15 Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's
         clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.

Mt:07.16 Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of
         thorns, or figs of thistles?

Mt:07.17 Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a
         corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit.

Mt:07.18 A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a
         corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.

Mt:07.19 Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down,
         and cast into the fire.

Mt:07.20 Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.

Mt:07.21 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into
         the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father
         which is in heaven.

Mt:07.22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not
         prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils?
         and in thy name done many wonderful works?

Mt:07.23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart
         from me, ye that work iniquity.

Mt:07.24 Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth
         them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house
         upon a rock:

Mt:07.25 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds
         blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was
         founded upon a rock.

Mt:07.26 And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth
         them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his
         house upon the sand:

Mt:07.27 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds
         blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the
         fall of it.

Mt:07.28 And it came to pass, when Jesus had ended these sayings, the
         people were astonished at his doctrine:

Mt:07.29 For he taught them as one having authority, and not as the

Mt:08.01 When he was come down from the mountain, great multitudes
         followed him.

Mt:08.02 And, behold, there came a leper and worshipped him, saying,
         Lord, if thou wilt, thou canst make me clean.

Mt:08.03 And Jesus put forth his hand, and touched him, saying, I will;
         be thou clean. And immediately his leprosy was cleansed.

Mt:08.04 And Jesus saith unto him, See thou tell no man; but go thy
         way, shew thyself to the priest, and offer the gift that Moses
         commanded, for a testimony unto them.

Mt:08.05 And when Jesus was entered into Capernaum, there came unto him
         a centurion, beseeching him,

Mt:08.06 And saying, Lord, my servant lieth at home sick of the palsy,
         grievously tormented.

Mt:08.07 And Jesus saith unto him, I will come and heal him.

Mt:08.08 The centurion answered and said, Lord, I am not worthy that
         thou shouldest come under my roof: but speak the word only,
         and my servant shall be healed.

Mt:08.09 For I am a man under authority, having soldiers under me: and
         I say to this man, Go, and he goeth; and to another, Come, and
         he cometh; and to my servant, Do this, and he doeth it.

Mt:08.10 When Jesus heard it, he marvelled, and said to them that
         followed, Verily I say unto you, I have not found so great
         faith, no, not in Israel.

Mt:08.11 And I say unto you, That many shall come from the east and
         west, and shall sit down with Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob,
         in the kingdom of heaven.

Mt:08.12 But the children of the kingdom shall be cast out into outer
         darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

Mt:08.13 And Jesus said unto the centurion, Go thy way; and as thou
         hast believed, so be it done unto thee. And his servant was
         healed in the selfsame hour.

Mt:08.14 And when Jesus was come into Peter's house, he saw his wife's
         mother laid, and sick of a fever.

Mt:08.15 And he touched her hand, and the fever left her: and she
         arose, and ministered unto them.

Mt:08.16 When the even was come, they brought unto him many that were
         possessed with devils: and he cast out the spirits with his
         word, and healed all that were sick:

Mt:08.17 That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Esaias the
         prophet, saying, Himself took our infirmities, and bare our

Mt:08.18 Now when Jesus saw great multitudes about him, he gave
         commandment to depart unto the other side.

Mt:08.19 And a certain scribe came, and said unto him, Master, I will
         follow thee whithersoever thou goest.

Mt:08.20 And Jesus saith unto him, The foxes have holes, and the birds
         of the air have nests; but the Son of man hath not where to
         lay his head.

Mt:08.21 And another of his disciples said unto him, Lord, suffer me
         first to go and bury my father.

Mt:08.22 But Jesus said unto him, Follow me; and let the dead bury
         their dead.

Mt:08.23 And when he was entered into a ship, his disciples followed

Mt:08.24 And, behold, there arose a great tempest in the sea, insomuch
         that the ship was covered with the waves: but he was asleep.

Mt:08.25 And his disciples came to him, and awoke him, saying, Lord,
         save us: we perish.

Mt:08.26 And he saith unto them, Why are ye fearful, O ye of little
         faith? Then he arose, and rebuked the winds and the sea; and
         there was a great calm.

Mt:08.27 But the men marvelled, saying, What manner of man is this,
         that even the winds and the sea obey him!

Mt:08.28 And when he was come to the other side into the country of the
         Gergesenes, there met him two possessed with devils, coming
         out of the tombs, exceeding fierce, so that no man might pass
         by that way.

Mt:08.29 And, behold, they cried out, saying, What have we to do with
         thee, Jesus, thou Son of God? art thou come hither to torment
         us before the time?

Mt:08.30 And there was a good way off from them an herd of many swine

Mt:08.31 So the devils besought him, saying, If thou cast us out,
         suffer us to go away into the herd of swine.

Mt:08.32 And he said unto them, Go. And when they were come out, they
         went into the herd of swine: and, behold, the whole herd of
         swine ran violently down a steep place into the sea, and
         perished in the waters.

Mt:08.33 And they that kept them fled, and went their ways into the
         city, and told every thing, and what was befallen to the
         possessed of the devils.

Mt:08.34 And, behold, the whole city came out to meet Jesus: and when
         they saw him, they besought him that he would depart out of
         their coasts.

Mt:09.01 And he entered into a ship, and passed over, and came into his
         own city.

Mt:09.02 And, behold, they brought to him a man sick of the palsy,
         lying on a bed: and Jesus seeing their faith said unto the
         sick of the palsy; Son, be of good cheer; thy sins be forgiven

Mt:09.03 And, behold, certain of the scribes said within themselves,
         This man blasphemeth.

Mt:09.04 And Jesus knowing their thoughts said, Wherefore think ye evil
         in your hearts?

Mt:09.05 For whether is easier, to say, Thy sins be forgiven thee; or
         to say, Arise, and walk?

Mt:09.06 But that ye may know that the Son of man hath power on earth
         to forgive sins, (then saith he to the sick of the palsy,)
         Arise, take up thy bed, and go unto thine house.

Mt:09.07 And he arose, and departed to his house.

Mt:09.08 But when the multitudes saw it, they marvelled, and glorified
         God, which had given such power unto men.

Mt:09.09 And as Jesus passed forth from thence, he saw a man, named
         Matthew, sitting at the receipt of custom: and he saith unto
         him, Follow me. And he arose, and followed him.

Mt:09.10 And it came to pass, as Jesus sat at meat in the house,
         behold, many publicans and sinners came and sat down with him
         and his disciples.

Mt:09.11 And when the Pharisees saw it, they said unto his disciples,
         Why eateth your Master with publicans and sinners?

Mt:09.12 But when Jesus heard that, he said unto them, They that be
         whole need not a physician, but they that are sick.

Mt:09.13 But go ye and learn what that meaneth, I will have mercy, and
         not sacrifice: for I am not come to call the righteous, but
         sinners to repentance.

Mt:09.14 Then came to him the disciples of John, saying, Why do we and
         the Pharisees fast oft, but thy disciples fast not?

Mt:09.15 And Jesus said unto them, Can the children of the bridechamber
         mourn, as long as the bridegroom is with them? but the days
         will come, when the bridegroom shall be taken from them, and
         then shall they fast.

Mt:09.16 No man putteth a piece of new cloth unto an old garment, for
         that which is put in to fill it up taketh from the garment,
         and the rent is made worse.

Mt:09.17 Neither do men put new wine into old bottles: else the bottles
         break, and the wine runneth out, and the bottles perish: but
         they put new wine into new bottles, and both are preserved.

Mt:09.18 While he spake these things unto them, behold, there came a
         certain ruler, and worshipped him, saying, My daughter is even
         now dead: but come and lay thy hand upon her, and she shall

Mt:09.19 And Jesus arose, and followed him, and so did his disciples.

Mt:09.20 And, behold, a woman, which was diseased with an issue of
         blood twelve years, came behind him, and touched the hem of
         his garment:

Mt:09.21 For she said within herself, If I may but touch his garment, I
         shall be whole.

Mt:09.22 But Jesus turned him about, and when he saw her, he said,
         Daughter, be of good comfort; thy faith hath made thee whole.
         And the woman was made whole from that hour.

Mt:09.23 And when Jesus came into the ruler's house, and saw the
         minstrels and the people making a noise,

Mt:09.24 He said unto them, Give place: for the maid is not dead, but
         sleepeth. And they laughed him to scorn.

Mt:09.25 But when the people were put forth, he went in, and took her
         by the hand, and the maid arose.

Mt:09.26 And the fame hereof went abroad into all that land.

Mt:09.27 And when Jesus departed thence, two blind men followed him,
         crying, and saying, Thou son of David, have mercy on us.

Mt:09.28 And when he was come into the house, the blind men came to
         him: and Jesus saith unto them, Believe ye that I am able to
         do this? They said unto him, Yea, Lord.

Mt:09.29 Then touched he their eyes, saying, According to your faith be
         it unto you.

Mt:09.30 And their eyes were opened; and Jesus straitly charged them,
         saying, See that no man know it.

Mt:09.31 But they, when they were departed, spread abroad his fame in
         all that country.

Mt:09.32 As they went out, behold, they brought to him a dumb man
         possessed with a devil.

Mt:09.33 And when the devil was cast out, the dumb spake: and the
         multitudes marvelled, saying, It was never so seen in Israel.

Mt:09.34 But the Pharisees said, He casteth out devils through the
         prince of the devils.

Mt:09.35 And Jesus went about all the cities and villages, teaching in
         their synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and
         healing every sickness and every disease among the people.

Mt:09.36 But when he saw the multitudes, he was moved with compassion
         on them, because they fainted, and were scattered abroad, as
         sheep having no shepherd.

Mt:09.37 Then saith he unto his disciples, The harvest truly is
         plenteous, but the labourers are few;

Mt:09.38 Pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he will send
         forth labourers into his harvest.

Mt:10.01 And when he had called unto him his twelve disciples, he gave
         them power against unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to
         heal all manner of sickness and all manner of disease.

Mt:10.02 Now the names of the twelve apostles are these; The first,
         Simon, who is called Peter, and Andrew his brother; James the
         son of Zebedee, and John his brother;

Mt:10.03 Philip, and Bartholomew; Thomas, and Matthew the publican;
         James the son of Alphaeus, and Lebbaeus, whose surname was

Mt:10.04 Simon the Canaanite, and Judas Iscariot, who also betrayed

Mt:10.05 These twelve Jesus sent forth, and commanded them, saying, Go
         not into the way of the Gentiles, and into any city of the
         Samaritans enter ye not:

Mt:10.07 And as ye go, preach, saying, The kingdom of heaven is at

         devils: freely ye have received, freely give.

Mt:10.09 Provide neither gold, nor silver, nor brass in your purses,

Mt:10.10 Nor scrip for your journey, neither two coats, neither shoes,
         nor yet staves: for the workman is worthy of his meat.

Mt:10.11 And into whatsoever city or town ye shall enter, enquire who
         in it is worthy; and there abide till ye go thence.

Mt:10.12 And when ye come into an house, salute it.

Mt:10.13 And if the house be worthy, let your peace come upon it: but
         if it be not worthy, let your peace return to you.

Mt:10.14 And whosoever shall not receive you, nor hear your words, when
         ye depart out of that house or city, shake off the dust of
         your feet.

Mt:10.15 Verily I say unto you, It shall be more tolerable for the land
         of Sodom and Gomorrha in the day of judgment, than for that

Mt:10.16 Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves: be
         ye therefore wise as serpents, and harmless as doves.

Mt:10.17 But beware of men: for they will deliver you up to the
         councils, and they will scourge you in their synagogues;

Mt:10.18 And ye shall be brought before governors and kings for my
         sake, for a testimony against them and the Gentiles.

Mt:10.19 But when they deliver you up, take no thought how or what ye
         shall speak: for it shall be given you in that same hour what
         ye shall speak.

Mt:10.20 For it is not ye that speak, but the Spirit of your Father
         which speaketh in you.

Mt:10.21 And the brother shall deliver up the brother to death, and the
         father the child: and the children shall rise up against their
         parents, and cause them to be put to death.

Mt:10.22 And ye shall be hated of all men for my name's sake: but he
         that endureth to the end shall be saved.

Mt:10.23 But when they persecute you in this city, flee ye into
         another: for verily I say unto you, Ye shall not have gone
         over the cities of Israel, till the Son of man be come.

Mt:10.24 The disciple is not above his master, nor the servant above
         his lord.

Mt:10.25 It is enough for the disciple that he be as his master, and
         the servant as his lord. If they have called the master of the
         house Beelzebub, how much more shall they call them of his

Mt:10.26 Fear them not therefore: for there is nothing covered, that

         ye hear in the ear, that preach ye upon the housetops.

Mt:10.28 And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to
         kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy
         both soul and body in hell.

Mt:10.29 Are not two sparrows sold for a farthing? and one of them
         shall not fall on the ground without your Father.

Mt:10.30 But the very hairs of your head are all numbered.

Mt:10.31 Fear ye not therefore, ye are of more value than many

Mt:10.32 Whosoever therefore shall confess me before men, him will I
         confess also before my Father which is in heaven.

Mt:10.33 But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny
         before my Father which is in heaven.

Mt:10.34 Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to
         send peace, but a sword.

Mt:10.35 For I am come to set a man at variance against his father, and
         the daughter against her mother, and the daughter in law
         against her mother in law.

Mt:10.36 And a man's foes shall be they of his own household.

Mt:10.37 He that loveth father or mother more than me is not worthy of
         me: and he that loveth son or daughter more than me is not
         worthy of me.

Mt:10.38 And he that taketh not his cross, and followeth after me, is
         not worthy of me.

Mt:10.39 He that findeth his life shall lose it: and he that loseth his
         life for my sake shall find it.

Mt:10.40 He that receiveth you receiveth me, and he that receiveth me
         receiveth him that sent me.

Mt:11.01 And it came to pass, when Jesus had made an end of commanding
         his twelve disciples, he departed thence to teach and to
         preach in their cities.

Mt:11.02 Now when John had heard in the prison the works of Christ, he
         sent two of his disciples,

Mt:11.03 And said unto him, Art thou he that should come, or do we look
         for another?

Mt:11.04 Jesus answered and said unto them, Go and shew John again
         those things which ye do hear and see:

Mt:11.05 The blind receive their sight, and the lame walk, the lepers
         are cleansed, and the deaf hear, the dead are raised up, and
         the poor have the gospel preached to them.

Mt:11.06 And blessed is he, whosoever shall not be offended in me.

Mt:11.07 And as they departed, Jesus began to say unto the multitudes
         concerning John, What went ye out into the wilderness to see?
         A reed shaken with the wind?

Mt:11.08 But what went ye out for to see? A man clothed in soft
         raiment? behold, they that wear soft clothing are in kings'

Mt:11.09 But what went ye out for to see? A prophet? yea, I say unto
         you, and more than a prophet.

Mt:11.10 For this is he, of whom it is written, Behold, I send my
         messenger before thy face, which shall prepare thy way before

Mt:11.11 Verily I say unto you, Among them that are born of women there
         hath not risen a greater than John the Baptist:
         notwithstanding he that is least in the kingdom of heaven is
         greater than he.

Mt:11.12 And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of
         heaven suffereth violence, and the violent take it by force.

Mt:11.13 For all the prophets and the law prophesied until John.

Mt:11.14 And if ye will receive it, this is Elias, which was for to

Mt:11.15 He that hath ears to hear, let him hear.

Mt:11.16 But whereunto shall I liken this generation? It is like unto
         children sitting in the markets, and calling unto their

Mt:11.17 And saying, We have piped unto you, and ye have not danced; we
         have mourned unto you, and ye have not lamented.

Mt:11.18 For John came neither eating nor drinking, and they say, He
         hath a devil.

Mt:11.19 The Son of man came eating and drinking, and they say, Behold
         a man gluttonous, and a winebibber, a friend of publicans and
         sinners. But wisdom is justified of her children.

Mt:11.20 Then began he to upbraid the cities wherein most of his mighty
         works were done, because they repented not:

Mt:11.21 Woe unto thee, Chorazin! woe unto thee, Bethsaida! for if the
         mighty works, which were done in you, had been done in Tyre
         and Sidon, they would have repented long ago in sackcloth and

Mt:11.22 But I say unto you, It shall be more tolerable for Tyre and
         Sidon at the day of judgment, than for you.

Mt:11.23 And thou, Capernaum, which art exalted unto heaven, shalt be
         brought down to hell: for if the mighty works, which have been
         done in thee, had been done in Sodom, it would have remained
         until this day.

Mt:11.24 But I say unto you, That it shall be more tolerable for the
         land of Sodom in the day of judgment, than for thee.

Mt:11.25 At that time Jesus answered and said, I thank thee, O Father,
         Lord of heaven and earth, because thou hast hid these things
         from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them unto babes.

Mt:11.26 Even so, Father: for so it seemed good in thy sight.

Mt:11.27 All things are delivered unto me of my Father: and no man
         knoweth the Son, but the Father; neither knoweth any man the
         Father, save the Son, and he to whomsoever the Son will reveal

Mt:11.28 Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I
         will give you rest.

Mt:11.29 Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and
         lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.

Mt:11.30 For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.

Mt:12.01 At that time Jesus went on the sabbath day through the corn;
         and his disciples were an hungred, and began to pluck the ears
         of corn and to eat.

Mt:12.02 But when the Pharisees saw it, they said unto him, Behold, thy
         disciples do that which is not lawful to do upon the sabbath

Mt:12.03 But he said unto them, Have ye not read what David did, when
         he was an hungred, and they that were with him;

Mt:12.04 How he entered into the house of God, and did eat the
         shewbread, which was not lawful for him to eat, neither for
         them which were with him, but only for the priests?

Mt:12.05 Or have ye not read in the law, how that on the sabbath days
         the priests in the temple profane the sabbath, and are

Mt:12.06 But I say unto you, That in this place is one greater than the

Mt:12.07 But if ye had known what this meaneth, I will have mercy, and
         not sacrifice, ye would not have condemned the guiltless.

Mt:12.08 For the Son of man is Lord even of the sabbath day.

Mt:12.09 And when he was departed thence, he went into their synagogue:

Mt:12.10 And, behold, there was a man which had his hand withered. And
         they asked him, saying, Is it lawful to heal on the sabbath
         days? that they might accuse him.

Mt:12.11 And he said unto them, What man shall there be among you, that
         shall have one sheep, and if it fall into a pit on the sabbath
         day, will he not lay hold on it, and lift it out?

Mt:12.12 How much then is a man better than a sheep? Wherefore it is
         lawful to do well on the sabbath days.

Mt:12.13 Then saith he to the man, Stretch forth thine hand. And he
         stretched it forth; and it was restored whole, like as the

Mt:12.14 Then the Pharisees went out, and held a council against him,
         how they might destroy him.

Mt:12.15 But when Jesus knew it, he withdrew himself from thence: and
         great multitudes followed him, and he healed them all;

Mt:12.16 And charged them that they should not make him known:

Mt:12.17 That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Esaias the
         prophet, saying,

Mt:12.18 Behold my servant, whom I have chosen; my beloved, in whom my
         soul is well pleased: I will put my spirit upon him, and he
         shall shew judgment to the Gentiles.

Mt:12.19 He shall not strive, nor cry; neither shall any man hear his
         voice in the streets.

Mt:12.20 A bruised reed shall he not break, and smoking flax shall he
         not quench, till he send forth judgment unto victory.

Mt:12.21 And in his name shall the Gentiles trust.

Mt:12.22 Then was brought unto him one possessed with a devil, blind,
         and dumb: and he healed him, insomuch that the blind and dumb
         both spake and saw.

Mt:12.23 And all the people were amazed, and said, Is not this the son
         of David?

Mt:12.24 But when the Pharisees heard it, they said, This fellow doth
         not cast out devils, but by Beelzebub the prince of the

Mt:12.25 And Jesus knew their thoughts, and said unto them, Every
         kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and
         every city or house divided against itself shall not stand:

Mt:12.26 And if Satan cast out Satan, he is divided against himself;
         how shall then his kingdom stand?

Mt:12.27 And if I by Beelzebub cast out devils, by whom do your
         children cast them out? therefore they shall be your judges.

Mt:12.28 But if I cast out devils by the Spirit of God, then the
         kingdom of God is come unto you.

Mt:12.29 Or else how can one enter into a strong man's house, and spoil
         his goods, except he first bind the strong man? and then he
         will spoil his house.

Mt:12.30 He that is not with me is against me; and he that gathereth
         not with me scattereth abroad.

Mt:12.31 Wherefore I say unto you, All manner of sin and blasphemy
         shall be forgiven unto men: but the blasphemy against the Holy
         Ghost shall not be forgiven unto men.

Mt:12.32 And whosoever speaketh a word against the Son of man, it shall
         be forgiven him: but whosoever speaketh against the Holy
         Ghost, it shall not be forgiven him, neither in this world,
         neither in the world to come.

Mt:12.33 Either make the tree good, and his fruit good; or else make
         the tree corrupt, and his fruit corrupt: for the tree is known
         by his fruit.

Mt:12.34 O generation of vipers, how can ye, being evil, speak good
         things? for out of the abundance of the heart the mouth

Mt:12.35 A good man out of the good treasure of the heart bringeth
         forth good things: and an evil man out of the evil treasure
         bringeth forth evil things.

Mt:12.36 But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak,
         they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment.

Mt:12.37 For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words
         thou shalt be condemned.

Mt:12.38 Then certain of the scribes and of the Pharisees answered,
         saying, Master, we would see a sign from thee.

Mt:12.39 But he answered and said unto them, An evil and adulterous
         generation seeketh after a sign; and there shall no sign be
         given to it, but the sign of the prophet Jonas:

Mt:12.40 For as Jonas was three days and three nights in the whale's
         belly; so shall the Son of man be three days and three nights
         in the heart of the earth.

Mt:12.41 The men of Nineveh shall rise in judgment with this
         generation, and shall condemn it: because they repented at the
         preaching of Jonas; and, behold, a greater than Jonas is here.

Mt:12.42 The queen of the south shall rise up in the judgment with this
         generation, and shall condemn it: for she came from the
         uttermost parts of the earth to hear the wisdom of Solomon;
         and, behold, a greater than Solomon is here.

Mt:12.43 When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walketh
         through dry places, seeking rest, and findeth none.

Mt:12.44 Then he saith, I will return into my house from whence I came
         out; and when he is come, he findeth it empty, swept, and

Mt:12.45 Then goeth he, and taketh with himself seven other spirits
         more wicked than himself, and they enter in and dwell there:
         and the last state of that man is worse than the first. Even
         so shall it be also unto this wicked generation.

Mt:12.46 While he yet talked to the people, behold, his mother and his
         brethren stood without, desiring to speak with him.

Mt:12.47 Then one said unto him, Behold, thy mother and thy brethren
         stand without, desiring to speak with thee.

Mt:12.48 But he answered and said unto him that told him, Who is my
         mother? and who are my brethren?

Mt:12.49 And he stretched forth his hand toward his disciples, and
         said, Behold my mother and my brethren!

Mt:12.50 For whosoever shall do the will of my Father which is in
         heaven, the same is my brother, and sister, and mother.

Mt:13.01 The same day went Jesus out of the house, and sat by the sea

Mt:13.02 And great multitudes were gathered together unto him, so that
         he went into a ship, and sat; and the whole multitude stood on
         the shore.

Mt:13.03 And he spake many things unto them in parables, saying,
         Behold, a sower went forth to sow;

Mt:13.04 And when he sowed, some seeds fell by the way side, and the
         fowls came and devoured them up:

Mt:13.05 Some fell upon stony places, where they had not much earth:
         and forthwith they sprung up, because they had no deepness of

Mt:13.06 And when the sun was up, they were scorched; and because they
         had no root, they withered away.

Mt:13.07 And some fell among thorns; and the thorns sprung up, and
         choked them:

Mt:13.08 But other fell into good ground, and brought forth fruit, some
         an hundredfold, some sixtyfold, some thirtyfold.

Mt:13.09 Who hath ears to hear, let him hear.

Mt:13.10 And the disciples came, and said unto him, Why speakest thou
         unto them in parables?

Mt:13.11 He answered and said unto them, Because it is given unto you
         to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it
         is not given.

Mt:13.12 For whosoever hath, to him shall be given, and he shall have
         more abundance: but whosoever hath not, from him shall be
         taken away even that he hath.

Mt:13.13 Therefore speak I to them in parables: because they seeing see
         not; and hearing they hear not, neither do they understand.

Mt:13.14 And in them is fulfilled the prophecy of Esaias, which saith,
         By hearing ye shall hear, and shall not understand; and seeing
         ye shall see, and shall not perceive:

Mt:13.15 For this people's heart is waxed gross, and their ears are
         dull of hearing, and their eyes they have closed; lest at any
         time they should see with their eyes and hear with their ears,
         and should understand with their heart, and should be
         converted, and I should heal them.

Mt:13.16 But blessed are your eyes, for they see: and your ears, for
         they hear.

Mt:13.17 For verily I say unto you, That many prophets and righteous
         men have desired to see those things which ye see, and have
         not seen them; and to hear those things which ye hear, and
         have not heard them.

Mt:13.18 Hear ye therefore the parable of the sower.

Mt:13.19 When any one heareth the word of the kingdom, and
         understandeth it not, then cometh the wicked one, and catcheth
         away that which was sown in his heart. This is he which
         received seed by the way side.

Mt:13.20 But he that received the seed into stony places, the same is
         he that heareth the word, and anon with joy receiveth it;

Mt:13.21 Yet hath he not root in himself, but dureth for a while: for
         when tribulation or persecution ariseth because of the word,
         by and by he is offended.

Mt:13.22 He also that received seed among the thorns is he that heareth
         the word; and the care of this world, and the deceitfulness of
         riches, choke the word, and he becometh unfruitful.

Mt:13.23 But he that received seed into the good ground is he that
         heareth the word, and understandeth it; which also beareth
         fruit, and bringeth forth, some an hundredfold, some sixty,
         some thirty.

Mt:13.24 Another parable put he forth unto them, saying, The kingdom of
         heaven is likened unto a man which sowed good seed in his

Mt:13.25 But while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the
         wheat, and went his way.

Mt:13.26 But when the blade was sprung up, and brought forth fruit,
         then appeared the tares also.

Mt:13.27 So the servants of the householder came and said unto him,
         Sir, didst not thou sow good seed in thy field? from whence
         then hath it tares?

Mt:13.28 He said unto them, An enemy hath done this. The servants said
         unto him, Wilt thou then that we go and gather them up?

Mt:13.29 But he said, Nay; lest while ye gather up the tares, ye root
         up also the wheat with them.

Mt:13.30 Let both grow together until the harvest: and in the time of
         harvest I will say to the reapers, Gather ye together first
         the tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them: but gather
         the wheat into my barn.

Mt:13.31 Another parable put he forth unto them, saying, The kingdom of
         heaven is like to a grain of mustard seed, which a man took,
         and sowed in his field:

Mt:13.32 Which indeed is the least of all seeds: but when it is grown,
         it is the greatest among herbs, and becometh a tree, so that
         the birds of the air come and lodge in the branches thereof.

Mt:13.33 Another parable spake he unto them; The kingdom of heaven is
         like unto leaven, which a woman took, and hid in three
         measures of meal, till the whole was leavened.

Mt:13.34 All these things spake Jesus unto the multitude in parables;
         and without a parable spake he not unto them:

Mt:13.35 That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet,
         saying, I will open my mouth in parables; I will utter things
         which have been kept secret from the foundation of the world.

Mt:13.36 Then Jesus sent the multitude away, and went into the house:
         and his disciples came unto him, saying, Declare unto us the
         parable of the tares of the field.

Mt:13.37 He answered and said unto them, He that soweth the good seed
         is the Son of man;

Mt:13.38 The field is the world; the good seed are the children of the
         kingdom; but the tares are the children of the wicked one;

Mt:13.39 The enemy that sowed them is the devil; the harvest is the end
         of the world; and the reapers are the angels.

Mt:13.40 As therefore the tares are gathered and burned in the fire; so
         shall it be in the end of this world.

Mt:13.41 The Son of man shall send forth his angels, and they shall
         gather out of his kingdom all things that offend, and them
         which do iniquity;

Mt:13.42 And shall cast them into a furnace of fire: there shall be
         wailing and gnashing of teeth.

Mt:13.43 Then shall the righteous shine forth as the sun in the kingdom
         of their Father. Who hath ears to hear, let him hear.

Mt:13.44 Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto treasure hid in a
         field; the which when a man hath found, he hideth, and for joy
         thereof goeth and selleth all that he hath, and buyeth that

Mt:13.45 Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a merchant man,
         seeking goodly pearls:

Mt:13.46 Who, when he had found one pearl of great price, went and sold
         all that he had, and bought it.

Mt:13.47 Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a net, that was cast
         into the sea, and gathered of every kind:

Mt:13.48 Which, when it was full, they drew to shore, and sat down, and
         gathered the good into vessels, but cast the bad away.

Mt:13.49 So shall it be at the end of the world: the angels shall come
         forth, and sever the wicked from among the just,

Mt:13.50 And shall cast them into the furnace of fire: there shall be
         wailing and gnashing of teeth.

Mt:13.51 Jesus saith unto them, Have ye understood all these things?
         They say unto him, Yea, Lord.

Mt:13.52 Then said he unto them, Therefore every scribe which is
         instructed unto the kingdom of heaven is like unto a man that
         is an householder, which bringeth forth out of his treasure
         things new and old.

Mt:13.53 And it came to pass, that when Jesus had finished these
         parables, he departed thence.

Mt:13.54 And when he was come into his own country, he taught them in
         their synagogue, insomuch that they were astonished, and said,
         Whence hath this man this wisdom, and these mighty works?

Mt:13.55 Is not this the carpenter's son? is not his mother called
         Mary? and his brethren, James, and Joses, and Simon, and

Mt:13.56 And his sisters, are they not all with us? Whence then hath
         this man all these things?

Mt:13.57 And they were offended in him. But Jesus said unto them, A
         prophet is not without honour, save in his own country, and in
         his own house.

Mt:13.58 And he did not many mighty works there because of their

Mt:14.01 At that time Herod the tetrarch heard of the fame of Jesus,

Mt:14.02 And said unto his servants, This is John the Baptist; he is
         risen from the dead; and therefore mighty works do shew forth
         themselves in him.

Mt:14.03 For Herod had laid hold on John, and bound him, and put him in
         prison for Herodias' sake, his brother Philip's wife.

Mt:14.04 For John said unto him, It is not lawful for thee to have her.

Mt:14.05 And when he would have put him to death, he feared the
         multitude, because they counted him as a prophet.

Mt:14.06 But when Herod's birthday was kept, the daughter of Herodias
         danced before them, and pleased Herod.

Mt:14.07 Whereupon he promised with an oath to give her whatsoever she
         would ask.

Mt:14.08 And she, being before instructed of her mother, said, Give me
         here John Baptist's head in a charger.

Mt:14.09 And the king was sorry: nevertheless for the oath's sake, and
         them which sat with him at meat, he commanded it to be given

Mt:14.10 And he sent, and beheaded John in the prison.

Mt:14.11 And his head was brought in a charger, and given to the
         damsel: and she brought it to her mother.

Mt:14.12 And his disciples came, and took up the body, and buried it,
         and went and told Jesus.

Mt:14.13 When Jesus heard of it, he departed thence by ship into a
         desert place apart: and when the people had heard thereof,
         they followed him on foot out of the cities.

Mt:14.14 And Jesus went forth, and saw a great multitude, and was moved
         with compassion toward them, and he healed their sick.

Mt:14.15 And when it was evening, his disciples came to him, saying,
         This is a desert place, and the time is now past; send the
         multitude away, that they may go into the villages, and buy
         themselves victuals.

Mt:14.16 But Jesus said unto them, They need not depart; give ye them
         to eat.

Mt:14.17 And they say unto him, We have here but five loaves, and two

Mt:14.18 He said, Bring them hither to me.

Mt:14.19 And he commanded the multitude to sit down on the grass, and
         took the five loaves, and the two fishes, and looking up to
         heaven, he blessed, and brake, and gave the loaves to his
         disciples, and the disciples to the multitude.

Mt:14.20 And they did all eat, and were filled: and they took up of the
         fragments that remained twelve baskets full.

Mt:14.21 And they that had eaten were about five thousand men, beside
         women and children.

Mt:14.22 And straightway Jesus constrained his disciples to get into a
         ship, and to go before him unto the other side, while he sent
         the multitudes away.

Mt:14.23 And when he had sent the multitudes away, he went up into a
         mountain apart to pray: and when the evening was come, he was
         there alone.

Mt:14.24 But the ship was now in the midst of the sea, tossed with
         waves: for the wind was contrary.

Mt:14.25 And in the fourth watch of the night Jesus went unto them,
         walking on the sea.

Mt:14.26 And when the disciples saw him walking on the sea, they were
         troubled, saying, It is a spirit; and they cried out for fear.

Mt:14.27 But straightway Jesus spake unto them, saying, Be of good
         cheer; it is I; be not afraid.

Mt:14.28 And Peter answered him and said, Lord, if it be thou, bid me
         come unto thee on the water.

Mt:14.29 And he said, Come. And when Peter was come down out of the
         ship, he walked on the water, to go to Jesus.

Mt:14.30 But when he saw the wind boisterous, he was afraid; and
         beginning to sink, he cried, saying, Lord, save me.

Mt:14.31 And immediately Jesus stretched forth his hand, and caught
         him, and said unto him, O thou of little faith, wherefore
         didst thou doubt?

Mt:14.32 And when they were come into the ship, the wind ceased.

Mt:14.33 Then they that were in the ship came and worshipped him,
         saying, Of a truth thou art the Son of God.

Mt:14.34 And when they were gone over, they came into the land of

Mt:14.35 And when the men of that place had knowledge of him, they sent
         out into all that country round about, and brought unto him
         all that were diseased;

Mt:14.36 And besought him that they might only touch the hem of his
         garment: and as many as touched were made perfectly whole.

Mt:15.01 Then came to Jesus scribes and Pharisees, which were of
         Jerusalem, saying,

Mt:15.02 Why do thy disciples transgress the tradition of the elders?
         for they wash not their hands when they eat bread.

Mt:15.03 But he answered and said unto them, Why do ye also transgress
         the commandment of God by your tradition?

Mt:15.04 For God commanded, saying, Honour thy father and mother: and,
         He that curseth father or mother, let him die the death.

Mt:15.05 But ye say, Whosoever shall say to his father or his mother,
         It is a gift, by whatsoever thou mightest be profited by me;

Mt:15.06 And honour not his father or his mother, he shall be free.
         Thus have ye made the commandment of God of none effect by
         your tradition.

Mt:15.07 Ye hypocrites, well did Esaias prophesy of you, saying,

Mt:15.08 This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and
         honoureth me with their lips; but their heart is far from me.

Mt:15.09 But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the
         commandments of men.

Mt:15.10 And he called the multitude, and said unto them, Hear, and

Mt:15.11 Not that which goeth into the mouth defileth a man; but that
         which cometh out of the mouth, this defileth a man.

Mt:15.12 Then came his disciples, and said unto him, Knowest thou that
         the Pharisees were offended, after they heard this saying?

Mt:15.13 But he answered and said, Every plant, which my heavenly
         Father hath not planted, shall be rooted up.

Mt:15.14 Let them alone: they be blind leaders of the blind. And if the
         blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch

Mt:15.15 Then answered Peter and said unto him, Declare unto us this

Mt:15.16 And Jesus said, Are ye also yet without understanding?

Mt:15.17 Do not ye yet understand, that whatsoever entereth in at the
         mouth goeth into the belly, and is cast out into the draught?

Mt:15.18 But those things which proceed out of the mouth come forth
         from the heart; and they defile the man.

Mt:15.19 For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders,
         adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, blasphemies:

Mt:15.20 These are the things which defile a man: but to eat with
         unwashen hands defileth not a man.

Mt:15.21 Then Jesus went thence, and departed into the coasts of Tyre
         and Sidon.

Mt:15.22 And, behold, a woman of Canaan came out of the same coasts,
         and cried unto him, saying, Have mercy on me, O Lord, thou son
         of David; my daughter is grievously vexed with a devil.

Mt:15.23 But he answered her not a word. And his disciples came and
         besought him, saying, Send her away; for she crieth after us.

Mt:15.24 But he answered and said, I am not sent but unto the lost
         sheep of the house of Israel.

Mt:15.25 Then came she and worshipped him, saying, Lord, help me.

Mt:15.26 But he answered and said, It is not meet to take the
         children's bread, and to cast it to dogs.

Mt:15.27 And she said, Truth, Lord: yet the dogs eat of the crumbs
         which fall from their masters' table.

Mt:15.28 Then Jesus answered and said unto her, O woman, great is thy
         faith: be it unto thee even as thou wilt. And her daughter was
         made whole from that very hour.

Mt:15.29 And Jesus departed from thence, and came nigh unto the sea of
         Galilee; and went up into a mountain, and sat down there.

Mt:15.30 And great multitudes came unto him, having with them those
         that were lame, blind, dumb, maimed, and many others, and cast
         them down at Jesus' feet; and he healed them:

Mt:15.31 Insomuch that the multitude wondered, when they saw the dumb
         to speak, the maimed to be whole, the lame to walk, and the
         blind to see: and they glorified the God of Israel.

Mt:15.32 Then Jesus called his disciples unto him, and said, I have
         compassion on the multitude, because they continue with me now
         three days, and have nothing to eat: and I will not send them
         away fasting, lest they faint in the way.

Mt:15.33 And his disciples say unto him, Whence should we have so much
         bread in the wilderness, as to fill so great a multitude?

Mt:15.34 And Jesus saith unto them, How many loaves have ye? And they
         said, Seven, and a few little fishes.

Mt:15.35 And he commanded the multitude to sit down on the ground.

Mt:15.36 And he took the seven loaves and the fishes, and gave thanks,
         and brake them, and gave to his disciples, and the disciples
         to the multitude.

Mt:15.37 And they did all eat, and were filled: and they took up of the
         broken meat that was left seven baskets full.

Mt:15.38 And they that did eat were four thousand men, beside women and

Mt:15.39 And he sent away the multitude, and took ship, and came into
         the coasts of Magdala.

Mt:16.01 The Pharisees also with the Sadducees came, and tempting
         desired him that he would shew them a sign from heaven.

Mt:16.02 He answered and said unto them, When it is evening, ye say, It
         will be fair weather: for the sky is red.

Mt:16.03 And in the morning, It will be foul weather to day: for the
         sky is red and lowering. O ye hypocrites, ye can discern the
         face of the sky; but can ye not discern the signs of the

Mt:16.04 A wicked and adulterous generation seeketh after a sign; and
         there shall no sign be given unto it, but the sign of the
         prophet Jonas. And he left them, and departed.

Mt:16.05 And when his disciples were come to the other side, they had
         forgotten to take bread.

Mt:16.06 Then Jesus said unto them, Take heed and beware of the leaven
         of the Pharisees and of the Sadducees.

Mt:16.07 And they reasoned among themselves, saying, It is because we
         have taken no bread.

Mt:16.08 Which when Jesus perceived, he said unto them, O ye of little
         faith, why reason ye among yourselves, because ye have brought
         no bread?

Mt:16.09 Do ye not yet understand, neither remember the five loaves of
         the five thousand, and how many baskets ye took up?

Mt:16.10 Neither the seven loaves of the four thousand, and how many
         baskets ye took up?

Mt:16.11 How is it that ye do not understand that I spake it not to you
         concerning bread, that ye should beware of the leaven of the
         Pharisees and of the Sadducees?

Mt:16.12 Then understood they how that he bade them not beware of the
         leaven of bread, but of the doctrine of the Pharisees and of
         the Sadducees.

Mt:16.13 When Jesus came into the coasts of Caesarea Philippi, he asked
         his disciples, saying, Whom do men say that I the Son of man

Mt:16.14 And they said, Some say that thou art John the Baptist: some,
         Elias; and others, Jeremias, or one of the prophets.

Mt:16.15 He saith unto them, But whom say ye that I am?

Mt:16.16 And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ, the
         Son of the living God.

Mt:16.17 And Jesus answered and said unto him, Blessed art thou, Simon
         Barjona: for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee,
         but my Father which is in heaven.

Mt:16.18 And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this
         rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not
         prevail against it.

Mt:16.19 And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven:
         and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in
         heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be
         loosed in heaven.

Mt:16.20 Then charged he his disciples that they should tell no man
         that he was Jesus the Christ.

Mt:16.21 From that time forth began Jesus to shew unto his disciples,
         how that he must go unto Jerusalem, and suffer many things of
         the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be killed, and
         be raised again the third day.

Mt:16.22 Then Peter took him, and began to rebuke him, saying, Be it
         far from thee, Lord: this shall not be unto thee.

Mt:16.23 But he turned, and said unto Peter, Get thee behind me, Satan:
         thou art an offence unto me: for thou savourest not the things
         that be of God, but those that be of men.

Mt:16.24 Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after
         me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow

Mt:16.25 For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: and whosoever
         will lose his life for my sake shall find it.

Mt:16.26 For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world,
         and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange
         for his soul?

Mt:16.27 For the Son of man shall come in the glory of his Father with
         his angels; and then he shall reward every man according to
         his works.

Mt:16.28 Verily I say unto you, There be some standing here, which
         shall not taste of death, till they see the Son of man coming
         in his kingdom.

Mt:17.02 And was transfigured before them: and his face did shine as
         the sun, and his raiment was white as the light.

Mt:17.03 And, behold, there appeared unto them Moses and Elias talking
         with him.

Mt:17.04 Then answered Peter, and said unto Jesus, Lord, it is good for
         us to be here: if thou wilt, let us make here three
         tabernacles; one for thee, and one for Moses, and one for

         and behold a voice out of the cloud, which said, This is my
         beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased; hear ye him.

Mt:17.06 And when the disciples heard it, they fell on their face, and
         were sore afraid.

Mt:17.07 And Jesus came and touched them, and said, Arise, and be not

Mt:17.08 And when they had lifted up their eyes, they saw no man, save
         Jesus only.

Mt:17.09 And as they came down from the mountain, Jesus charged them,
         saying, Tell the vision to no man, until the Son of man be
         risen again from the dead.

Mt:17.10 And his disciples asked him, saying, Why then say the scribes
         that Elias must first come?

Mt:17.11 And Jesus answered and said unto them, Elias truly shall first
         come, and restore all things.

Mt:17.12 But I say unto you, That Elias is come already, and they knew
         him not, but have done unto him whatsoever they listed.
         Likewise shall also the Son of man suffer of them.

Mt:17.13 Then the disciples understood that he spake unto them of John
         the Baptist.

Mt:17.14 And when they were come to the multitude, there came to him a
         certain man, kneeling down to him, and saying,

Mt:17.15 Lord, have mercy on my son: for he is lunatick, and sore
         vexed: for ofttimes he falleth into the fire, and oft into the

Mt:17.16 And I brought him to thy disciples, and they could not cure

         generation, how long shall I be with you? how long shall I
         suffer you? bring him hither to me.

Mt:17.18 And Jesus rebuked the devil; and he departed out of him: and
         the child was cured from that very hour.

Mt:17.19 Then came the disciples to Jesus apart, and said, Why could
         not we cast him out?

Mt:17.20 And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily
         I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed,
         ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place;
         and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you.

Mt:17.21 Howbeit this kind goeth not out but by prayer and fasting.

Mt:17.22 And while they abode in Galilee, Jesus said unto them, The Son
         of man shall be betrayed into the hands of men:

Mt:17.23 And they shall kill him, and the third day he shall be raised
         again. And they were exceeding sorry.

Mt:17.24 And when they were come to Capernaum, they that received
         tribute money came to Peter, and said, Doth not your master
         pay tribute?

Mt:17.25 He saith, Yes. And when he was come into the house, Jesus
         prevented him, saying, What thinkest thou, Simon? of whom do
         the kings of the earth take custom or tribute? of their own
         children, or of strangers?

Mt:17.26 Peter saith unto him, Of strangers. Jesus saith unto him, Then
         are the children free.

Mt:17.27 Notwithstanding, lest we should offend them, go thou to the
         sea, and cast an hook, and take up the fish that first cometh
         up; and when thou hast opened his mouth, thou shalt find a
         piece of money: that take, and give unto them for me and thee.

Mt:18.01 At the same time came the disciples unto Jesus, saying, Who is
         the greatest in the kingdom of heaven?

Mt:18.02 And Jesus called a little child unto him, and set him in the
         midst of them,

Mt:18.03 And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and
         become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom
         of heaven.

Mt:18.04 Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child,
         the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven.

Mt:18.05 And whoso shall receive one such little child in my name
         receiveth me.

Mt:18.06 But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe
         in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged
         about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the

Mt:18.07 Woe unto the world because of offences! for it must needs be
         that offences come; but woe to that man by whom the offence

Mt:18.08 Wherefore if thy hand or thy foot offend thee, cut them off,
         and cast them from thee: it is better for thee to enter into
         life halt or maimed, rather than having two hands or two feet
         to be cast into everlasting fire.

Mt:18.09 And if thine eye offend thee, pluck it out, and cast it from
         thee: it is better for thee to enter into life with one eye,
         rather than having two eyes to be cast into hell fire.

Mt:18.10 Take heed that ye despise not one of these little ones; for I
         say unto you, That in heaven their angels do always behold the
         face of my Father which is in heaven.

Mt:18.11 For the Son of man is come to save that which was lost.

Mt:18.12 How think ye? if a man have an hundred sheep, and one of them
         be gone astray, doth he not leave the ninety and nine, and
         goeth into the mountains, and seeketh that which is gone

Mt:18.13 And if so be that he find it, verily I say unto you, he
         rejoiceth more of that sheep, than of the ninety and nine
         which went not astray.

Mt:18.14 Even so it is not the will of your Father which is in heaven,
         that one of these little ones should perish.

Mt:18.15 Moreover if thy brother shall trespass against thee, go and
         tell him his fault between thee and him alone: if he shall
         hear thee, thou hast gained thy brother.

Mt:18.16 But if he will not hear thee, then take with thee one or two
         more, that in the mouth of two or three witnesses every word
         may be established.

Mt:18.17 And if he shall neglect to hear them, tell it unto the church:
         but if he neglect to hear the church, let him be unto thee as
         an heathen man and a publican.

Mt:18.18 Verily I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall bind on earth shall
         be bound in heaven: and whatsoever ye shall loose on earth
         shall be loosed in heaven.

Mt:18.19 Again I say unto you, That if two of you shall agree on earth
         as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done
         for them of my Father which is in heaven.

Mt:18.20 For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there
         am I in the midst of them.

Mt:18.21 Then came Peter to him, and said, Lord, how oft shall my
         brother sin against me, and I forgive him? till seven times?

Mt:18.22 Jesus saith unto him, I say not unto thee, Until seven times:
         but, Until seventy times seven.

Mt:18.23 Therefore is the kingdom of heaven likened unto a certain
         king, which would take account of his servants.

Mt:18.24 And when he had begun to reckon, one was brought unto him,
         which owed him ten thousand talents.

Mt:18.25 But forasmuch as he had not to pay, his lord commanded him to
         be sold, and his wife, and children, and all that he had, and
         payment to be made.

Mt:18.26 The servant therefore fell down, and worshipped him, saying,
         Lord, have patience with me, and I will pay thee all.

Mt:18.27 Then the lord of that servant was moved with compassion, and
         loosed him, and forgave him the debt.

Mt:18.28 But the same servant went out, and found one of his
         fellowservants, which owed him an hundred pence: and he laid
         hands on him, and took him by the throat, saying, Pay me that
         thou owest.

Mt:18.29 And his fellowservant fell down at his feet, and besought him,
         saying, Have patience with me, and I will pay thee all.

Mt:18.30 And he would not: but went and cast him into prison, till he
         should pay the debt.

Mt:18.31 So when his fellowservants saw what was done, they were very
         sorry, and came and told unto their lord all that was done.

Mt:18.32 Then his lord, after that he had called him, said unto him, O
         thou wicked servant, I forgave thee all that debt, because
         thou desiredst me:

Mt:18.33 Shouldest not thou also have had compassion on thy
         fellowservant, even as I had pity on thee?

Mt:18.34 And his lord was wroth, and delivered him to the tormentors,
         till he should pay all that was due unto him.

Mt:18.35 So likewise shall my heavenly Father do also unto you, if ye
         from your hearts forgive not every one his brother their

Mt:19.01 And it came to pass, that when Jesus had finished these
         sayings, he departed from Galilee, and came into the coasts of
         Judaea beyond Jordan;

Mt:19.02 And great multitudes followed him; and he healed them there.

Mt:19.03 The Pharisees also came unto him, tempting him, and saying
         unto him, Is it lawful for a man to put away his wife for
         every cause?

Mt:19.04 And he answered and said unto them, Have ye not read, that he
         which made them at the beginning made them male and female,

Mt:19.05 And said, For this cause shall a man leave father and mother,
         and shall cleave to his wife: and they twain shall be one

Mt:19.06 Wherefore they are no more twain, but one flesh. What
         therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder.

Mt:19.07 They say unto him, Why did Moses then command to give a
         writing of divorcement, and to put her away?

Mt:19.08 He saith unto them, Moses because of the hardness of your
         hearts suffered you to put away your wives: but from the
         beginning it was not so.

Mt:19.09 And I say unto you, Whosoever shall put away his wife, except
         it be for fornication, and shall marry another, committeth
         adultery: and whoso marrieth her which is put away doth commit

Mt:19.10 His disciples say unto him, If the case of the man be so with
         his wife, it is not good to marry.

Mt:19.11 But he said unto them, All men cannot receive this saying,
         save they to whom it is given.

Mt:19.12 For there are some eunuchs, which were so born from their
         mother's womb: and there are some eunuchs, which were made
         eunuchs of men: and there be eunuchs, which have made
         themselves eunuchs for the kingdom of heaven's sake. He that
         is able to receive it, let him receive it.

Mt:19.13 Then were there brought unto him little children, that he
         should put his hands on them, and pray: and the disciples
         rebuked them.

Mt:19.14 But Jesus said, Suffer little children, and forbid them not,
         to come unto me: for of such is the kingdom of heaven.

Mt:19.15 And he laid his hands on them, and departed thence.

Mt:19.16 And, behold, one came and said unto him, Good Master, what
         good thing shall I do, that I may have eternal life?

Mt:19.17 And he said unto him, Why callest thou me good? there is none
         good but one, that is, God: but if thou wilt enter into life,
         keep the commandments.

Mt:19.18 He saith unto him, Which? Jesus said, Thou shalt do no murder,
         Thou shalt not commit adultery, Thou shalt not steal, Thou
         shalt not bear false witness,

Mt:19.19 Honour thy father and thy mother: and, Thou shalt love thy
         neighbour as thyself.

Mt:19.20 The young man saith unto him, All these things have I kept
         from my youth up: what lack I yet?

Mt:19.21 Jesus said unto him, If thou wilt be perfect, go and sell that
         thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure
         in heaven: and come and follow me.

Mt:19.22 But when the young man heard that saying, he went away
         sorrowful: for he had great possessions.

Mt:19.23 Then said Jesus unto his disciples, Verily I say unto you,
         That a rich man shall hardly enter into the kingdom of heaven.

Mt:19.24 And again I say unto you, It is easier for a camel to go
         through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into
         the kingdom of God.

Mt:19.25 When his disciples heard it, they were exceedingly amazed,
         saying, Who then can be saved?

Mt:19.26 But Jesus beheld them, and said unto them, With men this is
         impossible; but with God all things are possible.

Mt:19.27 Then answered Peter and said unto him, Behold, we have
         forsaken all, and followed thee; what shall we have therefore?

Mt:19.28 And Jesus said unto them, Verily I say unto you, That ye which
         have followed me, in the regeneration when the Son of man
         shall sit in the throne of his glory, ye also shall sit upon
         twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel.

Mt:19.29 And every one that hath forsaken houses, or brethren, or
         sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands,
         for my name's sake, shall receive an hundredfold, and shall

         householder, which went out early in the morning to hire
         labourers into his vineyard.

Mt:20.02 And when he had agreed with the labourers for a penny a day,
         he sent them into his vineyard.

Mt:20.03 And he went out about the third hour, and saw others standing
         idle in the marketplace,

Mt:20.04 And said unto them; Go ye also into the vineyard, and
         whatsoever is right I will give you. And they went their way.

Mt:20.05 Again he went out about the sixth and ninth hour, and did

Mt:20.06 And about the eleventh hour he went out, and found others
         standing idle, and saith unto them, Why stand ye here all the
         day idle?

Mt:20.07 They say unto him, Because no man hath hired us. He saith unto
         them, Go ye also into the vineyard; and whatsoever is right,
         that shall ye receive.

Mt:20.08 So when even was come, the lord of the vineyard saith unto his
         steward, Call the labourers, and give them their hire,
         beginning from the last unto the first.

Mt:20.09 And when they came that were hired about the eleventh hour,
         they received every man a penny.

Mt:20.10 But when the first came, they supposed that they should have
         received more; and they likewise received every man a penny.

Mt:20.11 And when they had received it, they murmured against the
         goodman of the house,

Mt:20.12 Saying, These last have wrought but one hour, and thou hast
         made them equal unto us, which have borne the burden and heat
         of the day.

Mt:20.13 But he answered one of them, and said, Friend, I do thee no
         wrong: didst not thou agree with me for a penny?

Mt:20.14 Take that thine is, and go thy way: I will give unto this
         last, even as unto thee.

Mt:20.15 Is it not lawful for me to do what I will with mine own? Is
         thine eye evil, because I am good?

Mt:20.16 So the last shall be first, and the first last: for many be
         called, but few chosen.

Mt:20.17 And Jesus going up to Jerusalem took the twelve disciples
         apart in the way, and said unto them,

Mt:20.18 Behold, we go up to Jerusalem; and the Son of man shall be
         betrayed unto the chief priests and unto the scribes, and they
         shall condemn him to death,

Mt:20.19 And shall deliver him to the Gentiles to mock, and to scourge,
         and to crucify him: and the third day he shall rise again.

Mt:20.20 Then came to him the mother of Zebedees children with her
         sons, worshipping him, and desiring a certain thing of him.

Mt:20.21 And he said unto her, What wilt thou? She saith unto him,
         Grant that these my two sons may sit, the one on thy right
         hand, and the other on the left, in thy kingdom.

Mt:20.22 But Jesus answered and said, Ye know not what ye ask. Are ye
         able to drink of the cup that I shall drink of, and to be
         baptized with the baptism that I am baptized with? They say
         unto him, We are able.

Mt:20.23 And he saith unto them, Ye shall drink indeed of my cup, and
         be baptized with the baptism that I am baptized with: but to
         sit on my right hand, and on my left, is not mine to give, but
         it shall be given to them for whom it is prepared of my

Mt:20.24 And when the ten heard it, they were moved with indignation
         against the two brethren.

Mt:20.25 But Jesus called them unto him, and said, Ye know that the
         princes of the Gentiles exercise dominion over them, and they
         that are great exercise authority upon them.

Mt:20.26 But it shall not be so among you: but whosoever will be great
         among you, let him be your minister;

Mt:20.27 And whosoever will be chief among you, let him be your

Mt:20.28 Even as the Son of man came not to be ministered unto, but to
         minister, and to give his life a ransom for many.

Mt:20.29 And as they departed from Jericho, a great multitude followed

Mt:20.30 And, behold, two blind men sitting by the way side, when they
         heard that Jesus passed by, cried out, saying, Have mercy on
         us, O Lord, thou son of David.

Mt:20.31 And the multitude rebuked them, because they should hold their
         peace: but they cried the more, saying, Have mercy on us, O
         Lord, thou son of David.

Mt:20.32 And Jesus stood still, and called them, and said, What will ye
         that I shall do unto you?

Mt:20.33 They say unto him, Lord, that our eyes may be opened.

Mt:20.34 So Jesus had compassion on them, and touched their eyes: and
         immediately their eyes received sight, and they followed him.

Mt:21.01 And when they drew nigh unto Jerusalem, and were come to
         Bethphage, unto the mount of Olives, then sent Jesus two

Mt:21.02 Saying unto them, Go into the village over against you, and
         straightway ye shall find an ass tied, and a colt with her:
         loose them, and bring them unto me.

Mt:21.03 And if any man say ought unto you, ye shall say, The Lord hath
         need of them; and straightway he will send them.

Mt:21.04 All this was done, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken
         by the prophet, saying,

Mt:21.05 Tell ye the daughter of Sion, Behold, thy King cometh unto
         thee, meek, and sitting upon an ass, and a colt the foal of an

Mt:21.06 And the disciples went, and did as Jesus commanded them,

Mt:21.07 And brought the ass, and the colt, and put on them their
         clothes, and they set him thereon.

Mt:21.08 And a very great multitude spread their garments in the way;
         others cut down branches from the trees, and strawed them in
         the way.

Mt:21.09 And the multitudes that went before, and that followed, cried,
         saying, Hosanna to the son of David: Blessed is he that cometh
         in the name of the Lord; Hosanna in the highest.

Mt:21.10 And when he was come into Jerusalem, all the city was moved,
         saying, Who is this?

Mt:21.11 And the multitude said, This is Jesus the prophet of Nazareth
         of Galilee.

Mt:21.12 And Jesus went into the temple of God, and cast out all them
         that sold and bought in the temple, and overthrew the tables
         of the moneychangers, and the seats of them that sold doves,

Mt:21.13 And said unto them, It is written, My house shall be called
         the house of prayer; but ye have made it a den of thieves.

Mt:21.14 And the blind and the lame came to him in the temple; and he
         healed them.

Mt:21.15 And when the chief priests and scribes saw the wonderful
         things that he did, and the children crying in the temple, and
         saying, Hosanna to the son of David; they were sore

Mt:21.16 And said unto him, Hearest thou what these say? And Jesus
         saith unto them, Yea; have ye never read, Out of the mouth of
         babes and sucklings thou hast perfected praise?

Mt:21.17 And he left them, and went out of the city into Bethany; and
         he lodged there.

Mt:21.18 Now in the morning as he returned into the city, he hungered.

Mt:21.19 And when he saw a fig tree in the way, he came to it, and
         found nothing thereon, but leaves only, and said unto it, Let
         no fruit grow on thee henceforward for ever. And presently the
         fig tree withered away.

Mt:21.20 And when the disciples saw it, they marvelled, saying, How
         soon is the fig tree withered away!

Mt:21.21 Jesus answered and said unto them, Verily I say unto you, If
         ye have faith, and doubt not, ye shall not only do this which
         is done to the fig tree, but also if ye shall say unto this
         mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; it
         shall be done.

Mt:21.22 And all things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing,
         ye shall receive.

Mt:21.23 And when he was come into the temple, the chief priests and
         the elders of the people came unto him as he was teaching, and
         said, By what authority doest thou these things? and who gave
         thee this authority?

Mt:21.24 And Jesus answered and said unto them, I also will ask you one
         thing, which if ye tell me, I in like wise will tell you by
         what authority I do these things.

Mt:21.25 The baptism of John, whence was it? from heaven, or of men?
         And they reasoned with themselves, saying, If we shall say,
         From heaven; he will say unto us, Why did ye not then believe

Mt:21.26 But if we shall say, Of men; we fear the people; for all hold
         John as a prophet.

Mt:21.27 And they answered Jesus, and said, We cannot tell. And he said
         unto them, Neither tell I you by what authority I do these

Mt:21.28 But what think ye? A certain man had two sons; and he came to
         the first, and said, Son, go work to day in my vineyard.

Mt:21.29 He answered and said, I will not: but afterward he repented,
         and went.

Mt:21.30 And he came to the second, and said likewise. And he answered
         and said, I go, sir: and went not.

Mt:21.31 Whether of them twain did the will of his father? They say
         unto him, The first. Jesus saith unto them, Verily I say unto
         you, That the publicans and the harlots go into the kingdom of
         God before you.

Mt:21.32 For John came unto you in the way of righteousness, and ye
         believed him not: but the publicans and the harlots believed
         him: and ye, when ye had seen it, repented not afterward, that
         ye might believe him.

Mt:21.33 Hear another parable: There was a certain householder, which
         planted a vineyard, and hedged it round about, and digged a
         winepress in it, and built a tower, and let it out to
         husbandmen, and went into a far country:

Mt:21.34 And when the time of the fruit drew near, he sent his servants
         to the husbandmen, that they might receive the fruits of it.

Mt:21.35 And the husbandmen took his servants, and beat one, and killed
         another, and stoned another.

Mt:21.36 Again, he sent other servants more than the first: and they
         did unto them likewise.

Mt:21.37 But last of all he sent unto them his son, saying, They will
         reverence my son.

Mt:21.38 But when the husbandmen saw the son, they said among
         themselves, This is the heir; come, let us kill him, and let
         us seize on his inheritance.

Mt:21.39 And they caught him, and cast him out of the vineyard, and
         slew him.

Mt:21.40 When the lord therefore of the vineyard cometh, what will he
         do unto those husbandmen?

Mt:21.41 They say unto him, He will miserably destroy those wicked men,
         and will let out his vineyard unto other husbandmen, which
         shall render him the fruits in their seasons.

Mt:21.42 Jesus saith unto them, Did ye never read in the scriptures,
         The stone which the builders rejected, the same is become the
         head of the corner: this is the Lord's doing, and it is
         marvellous in our eyes?

Mt:21.43 Therefore say I unto you, The kingdom of God shall be taken
         from you, and given to a nation bringing forth the fruits

Mt:21.44 And whosoever shall fall on this stone shall be broken: but on
         whomsoever it shall fall, it will grind him to powder.

Mt:21.45 And when the chief priests and Pharisees had heard his
         parables, they perceived that he spake of them.

Mt:21.46 But when they sought to lay hands on him, they feared the
         multitude, because they took him for a prophet.

Mt:22.01 And Jesus answered and spake unto them again by parables, and

Mt:22.02 The kingdom of heaven is like unto a certain king, which made
         a marriage for his son,

Mt:22.03 And sent forth his servants to call them that were bidden to
         the wedding: and they would not come.

Mt:22.04 Again, he sent forth other servants, saying, Tell them which
         are bidden, Behold, I have prepared my dinner: my oxen and my
         fatlings are killed, and all things are ready: come unto the

Mt:22.05 But they made light of it, and went their ways, one to his
         farm, another to his merchandise:

Mt:22.06 And the remnant took his servants, and entreated them
         spitefully, and slew them.

Mt:22.07 But when the king heard thereof, he was wroth: and he sent
         forth his armies, and destroyed those murderers, and burned up
         their city.

Mt:22.08 Then saith he to his servants, The wedding is ready, but they
         which were bidden were not worthy.

Mt:22.09 Go ye therefore into the highways, and as many as ye shall
         find, bid to the marriage.

Mt:22.10 So those servants went out into the highways, and gathered
         together all as many as they found, both bad and good: and the
         wedding was furnished with guests.

Mt:22.11 And when the king came in to see the guests, he saw there a
         man which had not on a wedding garment:

Mt:22.12 And he saith unto him, Friend, how camest thou in hither not
         having a wedding garment? And he was speechless.

Mt:22.13 Then said the king to the servants, Bind him hand and foot,
         and take him away, and cast him into outer darkness, there
         shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

Mt:22.14 For many are called, but few are chosen.

Mt:22.15 Then went the Pharisees, and took counsel how they might
         entangle him in his talk.

Mt:22.16 And they sent out unto him their disciples with the Herodians,
         saying, Master, we know that thou art true, and teachest the
         way of God in truth, neither carest thou for any man: for thou
         regardest not the person of men.

Mt:22.17 Tell us therefore, What thinkest thou? Is it lawful to give
         tribute unto Caesar, or not?

Mt:22.18 But Jesus perceived their wickedness, and said, Why tempt ye
         me, ye hypocrites?

Mt:22.19 Shew me the tribute money. And they brought unto him a penny.

Mt:22.20 And he saith unto them, Whose is this image and

Mt:22.21 They say unto him, Caesar's. Then saith he unto them, Render
         therefore unto Caesar the things which are Caesar's; and unto
         God the things that are God's.

Mt:22.22 When they had heard these words, they marvelled, and left him,
         and went their way.

Mt:22.23 The same day came to him the Sadducees, which say that there
         is no resurrection, and asked him,

Mt:22.24 Saying, Master, Moses said, If a man die, having no children,
         his brother shall marry his wife, and raise up seed unto his

Mt:22.25 Now there were with us seven brethren: and the first, when he
         had married a wife, deceased, and, having no issue, left his
         wife unto his brother:

Mt:22.26 Likewise the second also, and the third, unto the seventh.

Mt:22.27 And last of all the woman died also.

Mt:22.28 Therefore in the resurrection whose wife shall she be of the
         seven? for they all had her.

Mt:22.29 Jesus answered and said unto them, Ye do err, not knowing the
         scriptures, nor the power of God.

Mt:22.30 For in the resurrection they neither marry, nor are given in
         marriage, but are as the angels of God in heaven.

Mt:22.31 But as touching the resurrection of the dead, have ye not read
         that which was spoken unto you by God, saying,

Mt:22.32 I am the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of
         Jacob? God is not the God of the dead, but of the living.

Mt:22.33 And when the multitude heard this, they were astonished at his

Mt:22.34 But when the Pharisees had heard that he had put the Sadducees
         to silence, they were gathered together.

Mt:22.35 Then one of them, which was a lawyer, asked him a question,
         tempting him, and saying,

Mt:22.36 Master, which is the great commandment in the law?

Mt:22.37 Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all
         thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.

Mt:22.38 This is the first and great commandment.

Mt:22.39 And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour
         as thyself.

Mt:22.40 On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.

Mt:22.41 While the Pharisees were gathered together, Jesus asked them,

Mt:22.42 Saying, What think ye of Christ? whose son is he? They say
         unto him, The son of David.

Mt:22.43 He saith unto them, How then doth David in spirit call him
         Lord, saying,

Mt:22.44 The LORD said unto my Lord, Sit thou on my right hand, till I
         make thine enemies thy footstool?

Mt:22.45 If David then call him Lord, how is he his son?

Mt:22.46 And no man was able to answer him a word, neither durst any
         man from that day forth ask him any more questions.

Mt:23.01 Then spake Jesus to the multitude, and to his disciples,

Mt:23.02 Saying The scribes and the Pharisees sit in Moses' seat:

Mt:23.03 All therefore whatsoever they bid you observe, that observe
         and do; but do not ye after their works: for they say, and do

Mt:23.04 For they bind heavy burdens and grievous to be borne, and lay
         them on men's shoulders; but they themselves will not move
         them with one of their fingers.

Mt:23.05 But all their works they do for to be seen of men: they make
         broad their phylacteries, and enlarge the borders of their

Mt:23.06 And love the uppermost rooms at feasts, and the chief seats in
         the synagogues,

Mt:23.07 And greetings in the markets, and to be called of men, Rabbi,

Mt:23.08 But be not ye called Rabbi: for one is your Master, even
         Christ; and all ye are brethren.

Mt:23.09 And call no man your father upon the earth: for one is your
         Father, which is in heaven.

Mt:23.10 Neither be ye called masters: for one is your Master, even

Mt:23.11 But he that is greatest among you shall be your servant.

Mt:23.12 And whosoever shall exalt himself shall be abased; and he that
         shall humble himself shall be exalted.

Mt:23.13 But woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye
         shut up the kingdom of heaven against men: for ye neither go
         in yourselves, neither suffer ye them that are entering to go

Mt:23.14 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye devour
         widows' houses, and for a pretence make long prayer: therefore
         ye shall receive the greater damnation.

Mt:23.15 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye
         compass sea and land to make one proselyte, and when he is
         made, ye make him twofold more the child of hell than

Mt:23.16 Woe unto you, ye blind guides, which say, Whosoever shall
         swear by the temple, it is nothing; but whosoever shall swear
         by the gold of the temple, he is a debtor!

Mt:23.17 Ye fools and blind: for whether is greater, the gold, or the
         temple that sanctifieth the gold?

Mt:23.18 And, Whosoever shall swear by the altar, it is nothing; but
         whosoever sweareth by the gift that is upon it, he is guilty.

Mt:23.19 Ye fools and blind: for whether is greater, the gift, or the
         altar that sanctifieth the gift?

Mt:23.20 Whoso therefore shall swear by the altar, sweareth by it, and
         by all things thereon.

Mt:23.21 And whoso shall swear by the temple, sweareth by it, and by
         him that dwelleth therein.

Mt:23.22 And he that shall swear by heaven, sweareth by the throne of
         God, and by him that sitteth thereon.

Mt:23.23 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye pay
         tithe of mint and anise and cummin, and have omitted the
         weightier matters of the law, judgment, mercy, and faith:
         these ought ye to have done, and not to leave the other

Mt:23.24 Ye blind guides, which strain at a gnat, and swallow a camel.

Mt:23.25 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye make
         clean the outside of the cup and of the platter, but within
         they are full of extortion and excess.

Mt:23.26 Thou blind Pharisee, cleanse first that which is within the
         cup and platter, that the outside of them may be clean also.

Mt:23.27 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye are
         like unto whited sepulchres, which indeed appear beautiful
         outward, but are within full of dead men's bones, and of all

Mt:23.28 Even so ye also outwardly appear righteous unto men, but
         within ye are full of hypocrisy and iniquity.

Mt:23.29 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! because ye
         build the tombs of the prophets, and garnish the sepulchres of
         the righteous,

         not have been partakers with them in the blood of the

Mt:23.31 Wherefore ye be witnesses unto yourselves, that ye are the
         children of them which killed the prophets.

Mt:23.32 Fill ye up then the measure of your fathers.

Mt:23.33 Ye serpents, ye generation of vipers, how can ye escape the
         damnation of hell?

Mt:23.34 Wherefore, behold, I send unto you prophets, and wise men, and
         scribes: and some of them ye shall kill and crucify; and some
         of them shall ye scourge in your synagogues, and persecute
         them from city to city:

Mt:23.35 That upon you may come all the righteous blood shed upon the
         earth, from the blood of righteous Abel unto the blood of
         Zacharias son of Barachias, whom ye slew between the temple
         and the altar.

         chickens under her wings, and ye would not!

         of the world?

         not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the
         end is not yet.

Mt:24.07 For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against
         kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and
         earthquakes, in divers places.

Mt:24.08 All these are the beginning of sorrows.

Mt:24.09 Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill
         you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name's sake.

Mt:24.10 And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another,
         and shall hate one another.

Mt:24.11 And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many.

Mt:24.12 And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax

Mt:24.13 But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be

Mt:24.14 And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the
         world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end

Mt:24.15 When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation,
         spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place,
         (whoso readeth, let him understand:)

Mt:24.16 Then let them which be in Judaea flee into the mountains:

Mt:24.17 Let him which is on the housetop not come down to take any
         thing out of his house:

Mt:24.18 Neither let him which is in the field return back to take his

Mt:24.19 And woe unto them that are with child, and to them that give
         suck in those days!

Mt:24.20 But pray ye that your flight be not in the winter, neither on
         the sabbath day:

Mt:24.21 For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the
         beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.

Mt:24.22 And except those days should be shortened, there should no
         flesh be saved: but for the elect's sake those days shall be

Mt:24.23 Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or
         there; believe it not.

Mt:24.24 For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and
         shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were
         possible, they shall deceive the very elect.

Mt:24.25 Behold, I have told you before.

Mt:24.26 Wherefore if they shall say unto you, Behold, he is in the
         desert; go not forth: behold, he is in the secret chambers;
         believe it not.

Mt:24.27 For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth even
         unto the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.

Mt:24.28 For wheresoever the carcase is, there will the eagles be
         gathered together.

Mt:24.29 Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun
         be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the
         stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens
         shall be shaken:

Mt:24.30 And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven:
         and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they
         shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with
         power and great glory.

Mt:24.31 And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet,
         and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds,
         from one end of heaven to the other.

Mt:24.32 Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet
         tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is nigh:

Mt:24.33 So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that
         it is near, even at the doors.

Mt:24.34 Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till
         all these things be fulfilled.

Mt:24.35 Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass

Mt:24.36 But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of
         heaven, but my Father only.

Mt:24.37 But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the
         Son of man be.

Mt:24.38 For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating
         and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day
         that Noe entered into the ark,

Mt:24.39 And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so
         shall also the coming of the Son of man be.

Mt:24.40 Then shall two be in the field; the one shall be taken, and
         the other left.

Mt:24.41 Two women shall be grinding at the mill; the one shall be
         taken, and the other left.

Mt:24.42 Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth

Mt:24.43 But know this, that if the goodman of the house had known in
         what watch the thief would come, he would have watched, and
         would not have suffered his house to be broken up.

Mt:24.44 Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think
         not the Son of man cometh.

Mt:24.45 Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom his lord hath
         made ruler over his household, to give them meat in due

Mt:24.46 Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he cometh shall
         find so doing.

Mt:24.47 Verily I say unto you, That he shall make him ruler over all
         his goods.

Mt:24.48 But and if that evil servant shall say in his heart, My lord
         delayeth his coming;

Mt:24.49 And shall begin to smite his fellowservants, and to eat and
         drink with the drunken;

Mt:24.50 The lord of that servant shall come in a day when he looketh
         not for him, and in an hour that he is not aware of,

Mt:24.51 And shall cut him asunder, and appoint him his portion with
         the hypocrites: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

Mt:25.01 Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins,
         which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom.

Mt:25.02 And five of them were wise, and five were foolish.

Mt:25.03 They that were foolish took their lamps, and took no oil with

Mt:25.04 But the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps.

Mt:25.05 While the bridegroom tarried, they all slumbered and slept.

Mt:25.06 And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom
         cometh; go ye out to meet him.

Mt:25.07 Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps.

Mt:25.08 And the foolish said unto the wise, Give us of your oil; for
         our lamps are gone out.

Mt:25.09 But the wise answered, saying, Not so; lest there be not
         enough for us and you: but go ye rather to them that sell, and
         buy for yourselves.

Mt:25.10 And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came; and they that
         were ready went in with him to the marriage: and the door was

Mt:25.11 Afterward came also the other virgins, saying, Lord, Lord,
         open to us.

Mt:25.12 But he answered and said, Verily I say unto you, I know you

Mt:25.13 Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour
         wherein the Son of man cometh.

Mt:25.14 For the kingdom of heaven is as a man travelling into a far
         country, who called his own servants, and delivered unto them
         his goods.

Mt:25.15 And unto one he gave five talents, to another two, and to
         another one; to every man according to his several ability;
         and straightway took his journey.

Mt:25.16 Then he that had received the five talents went and traded
         with the same, and made them other five talents.

Mt:25.17 And likewise he that had received two, he also gained other

Mt:25.18 But he that had received one went and digged in the earth, and
         hid his lord's money.

Mt:25.19 After a long time the lord of those servants cometh, and
         reckoneth with them.

Mt:25.20 And so he that had received five talents came and brought
         other five talents, saying, Lord, thou deliveredst unto me
         five talents: behold, I have gained beside them five talents

Mt:25.21 His lord said unto him, Well done, thou good and faithful
         servant: thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will
         make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of
         thy lord.

Mt:25.22 He also that had received two talents came and said, Lord,
         thou deliveredst unto me two talents: behold, I have gained
         two other talents beside them.

Mt:25.23 His lord said unto him, Well done, good and faithful servant;
         thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee
         ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord.

Mt:25.24 Then he which had received the one talent came and said, Lord,
         I knew thee that thou art an hard man, reaping where thou hast
         not sown, and gathering where thou hast not strawed:

Mt:25.25 And I was afraid, and went and hid thy talent in the earth:
         lo, there thou hast that is thine.

Mt:25.26 His lord answered and said unto him, Thou wicked and slothful
         servant, thou knewest that I reap where I sowed not, and
         gather where I have not strawed:

Mt:25.27 Thou oughtest therefore to have put my money to the
         exchangers, and then at my coming I should have received mine
         own with usury.

Mt:25.28 Take therefore the talent from him, and give it unto him which
         hath ten talents.

Mt:25.29 For unto every one that hath shall be given, and he shall have
         abundance: but from him that hath not shall be taken away even
         that which he hath.

Mt:25.30 And cast ye the unprofitable servant into outer darkness:
         there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

Mt:25.31 When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy
         angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his

Mt:25.32 And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall
         separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his
         sheep from the goats:

Mt:25.33 And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on
         the left.

Mt:25.34 Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye
         blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you
         from the foundation of the world:

Mt:25.35 For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and
         ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in:

Mt:25.36 Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was
         in prison, and ye came unto me.

Mt:25.37 Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we
         thee an hungred, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee

Mt:25.38 When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and
         clothed thee?

Mt:25.39 Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee?

Mt:25.40 And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto
         you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of
         these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.

Mt:25.41 Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from
         me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil
         and his angels:

Mt:25.42 For I was an hungred, and ye gave me no meat: I was thirsty,
         and ye gave me no drink:

Mt:25.43 I was a stranger, and ye took me not in: naked, and ye clothed
         me not: sick, and in prison, and ye visited me not.

Mt:25.44 Then shall they also answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we
         thee an hungred, or athirst, or a stranger, or naked, or sick,
         or in prison, and did not minister unto thee?

Mt:25.45 Then shall he answer them, saying, Verily I say unto you,
         Inasmuch as ye did it not to one of the least of these, ye did
         it not to me.

Mt:25.46 And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the
         righteous into life eternal.

Mt:26.01 And it came to pass, when Jesus had finished all these
         sayings, he said unto his disciples,

Mt:26.02 Ye know that after two days is the feast of the passover, and
         the Son of man is betrayed to be crucified.

Mt:26.03 Then assembled together the chief priests, and the scribes,
         and the elders of the people, unto the palace of the high
         priest, who was called Caiaphas,

Mt:26.04 And consulted that they might take Jesus by subtilty, and kill

Mt:26.05 But they said, Not on the feast day, lest there be an uproar
         among the people.

Mt:26.06 Now when Jesus was in Bethany, in the house of Simon the

Mt:26.07 There came unto him a woman having an alabaster box of very
         precious ointment, and poured it on his head, as he sat at

Mt:26.08 But when his disciples saw it, they had indignation, saying,
         To what purpose is this waste?

Mt:26.09 For this ointment might have been sold for much, and given to
         the poor.

Mt:26.10 When Jesus understood it, he said unto them, Why trouble ye
         the woman? for she hath wrought a good work upon me.

Mt:26.11 For ye have the poor always with you; but me ye have not

Mt:26.12 For in that she hath poured this ointment on my body, she did
         it for my burial.

Mt:26.13 Verily I say unto you, Wheresoever this gospel shall be
         preached in the whole world, there shall also this, that this
         woman hath done, be told for a memorial of her.

Mt:26.14 Then one of the twelve, called Judas Iscariot, went unto the
         chief priests,

Mt:26.15 And said unto them, What will ye give me, and I will deliver
         him unto you? And they covenanted with him for thirty pieces
         of silver.

Mt:26.16 And from that time he sought opportunity to betray him.

Mt:26.17 Now the first day of the feast of unleavened bread the
         disciples came to Jesus, saying unto him, Where wilt thou that
         we prepare for thee to eat the passover?

Mt:26.18 And he said, Go into the city to such a man, and say unto him,
         The Master saith, My time is at hand; I will keep the passover
         at thy house with my disciples.

Mt:26.19 And the disciples did as Jesus had appointed them; and they
         made ready the passover.

Mt:26.20 Now when the even was come, he sat down with the twelve.

Mt:26.21 And as they did eat, he said, Verily I say unto you, that one
         of you shall betray me.

Mt:26.22 And they were exceeding sorrowful, and began every one of them
         to say unto him, Lord, is it I?

Mt:26.23 And he answered and said, He that dippeth his hand with me in
         the dish, the same shall betray me.

Mt:26.24 The Son of man goeth as it is written of him: but woe unto
         that man by whom the Son of man is betrayed! it had been good
         for that man if he had not been born.

Mt:26.25 Then Judas, which betrayed him, answered and said, Master, is
         it I? He said unto him, Thou hast said.

Mt:26.26 And as they were eating, Jesus took bread, and blessed it, and
         brake it, and gave it to the disciples, and said, Take, eat;
         this is my body.

Mt:26.27 And he took the cup, and gave thanks, and gave it to them,
         saying, Drink ye all of it;

Mt:26.28 For this is my blood of the new testament, which is shed for
         many for the remission of sins.

Mt:26.29 But I say unto you, I will not drink henceforth of this fruit
         of the vine, until that day when I drink it new with you in my
         Father's kingdom.

Mt:26.30 And when they had sung an hymn, they went out into the mount
         of Olives.

Mt:26.31 Then saith Jesus unto them, All ye shall be offended because
         of me this night: for it is written, I will smite the
         shepherd, and the sheep of the flock shall be scattered

Mt:26.32 But after I am risen again, I will go before you into Galilee.

Mt:26.33 Peter answered and said unto him, Though all men shall be
         offended because of thee, yet will I never be offended.

Mt:26.34 Jesus said unto him, Verily I say unto thee, That this night,
         before the cock crow, thou shalt deny me thrice.

Mt:26.35 Peter said unto him, Though I should die with thee, yet will I
         not deny thee. Likewise also said all the disciples.

Mt:26.36 Then cometh Jesus with them unto a place called Gethsemane,
         and saith unto the disciples, Sit ye here, while I go and pray

Mt:26.37 And he took with him Peter and the two sons of Zebedee, and
         began to be sorrowful and very heavy.

Mt:26.38 Then saith he unto them, My soul is exceeding sorrowful, even
         unto death: tarry ye here, and watch with me.

Mt:26.39 And he went a little farther, and fell on his face, and
         prayed, saying, O my Father, if it be possible, let this cup
         pass from me: nevertheless not as I will, but as thou wilt.

Mt:26.40 And he cometh unto the disciples, and findeth them asleep, and
         saith unto Peter, What, could ye not watch with me one hour?

Mt:26.41 Watch and pray, that ye enter not into temptation: the spirit
         indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.

Mt:26.42 He went away again the second time, and prayed, saying, O my
         Father, if this cup may not pass away from me, except I drink
         it, thy will be done.

Mt:26.43 And he came and found them asleep again: for their eyes were

Mt:26.44 And he left them, and went away again, and prayed the third
         time, saying the same words.

Mt:26.45 Then cometh he to his disciples, and saith unto them, Sleep on
         now, and take your rest: behold, the hour is at hand, and the
         Son of man is betrayed into the hands of sinners.

Mt:26.46 Rise, let us be going: behold, he is at hand that doth betray

Mt:26.47 And while he yet spake, lo, Judas, one of the twelve, came,
         and with him a great multitude with swords and staves, from
         the chief priests and elders of the people.

Mt:26.48 Now he that betrayed him gave them a sign, saying, Whomsoever
         I shall kiss, that same is he: hold him fast.

Mt:26.49 And forthwith he came to Jesus, and said, Hail, master; and
         kissed him.

Mt:26.50 And Jesus said unto him, Friend, wherefore art thou come? Then
         came they, and laid hands on Jesus and took him.

Mt:26.51 And, behold, one of them which were with Jesus stretched out
         his hand, and drew his sword, and struck a servant of the high
         priest's, and smote off his ear.

Mt:26.52 Then said Jesus unto him, Put up again thy sword into his
         place: for all they that take the sword shall perish with the

Mt:26.53 Thinkest thou that I cannot now pray to my Father, and he
         shall presently give me more than twelve legions of angels?

Mt:26.54 But how then shall the scriptures be fulfilled, that thus it
         must be?

Mt:26.55 In that same hour said Jesus to the multitudes, Are ye come
         out as against a thief with swords and staves for to take me?
         I sat daily with you teaching in the temple, and ye laid no
         hold on me.

Mt:26.56 But all this was done, that the scriptures of the prophets
         might be fulfilled. Then all the disciples forsook him, and

Mt:26.57 And they that had laid hold on Jesus led him away to Caiaphas
         the high priest, where the scribes and the elders were

Mt:26.58 But Peter followed him afar off unto the high priest's palace,
         and went in, and sat with the servants, to see the end.

Mt:26.59 Now the chief priests, and elders, and all the council, sought
         false witness against Jesus, to put him to death;

Mt:26.60 But found none: yea, though many false witnesses came, yet
         found they none. At the last came two false witnesses,

Mt:26.61 And said, This fellow said, I am able to destroy the temple of
         God, and to build it in three days.

Mt:26.62 And the high priest arose, and said unto him, Answerest thou
         nothing? what is it which these witness against thee?

Mt:26.63 But Jesus held his peace, And the high priest answered and
         said unto him, I adjure thee by the living God, that thou tell
         us whether thou be the Christ, the Son of God.

Mt:26.64 Jesus saith unto him, Thou hast said: nevertheless I say unto
         you, Hereafter shall ye see the Son of man sitting on the
         right hand of power, and coming in the clouds of heaven.

Mt:26.65 Then the high priest rent his clothes, saying, He hath spoken
         blasphemy; what further need have we of witnesses? behold, now
         ye have heard his blasphemy.

Mt:26.66 What think ye? They answered and said, He is guilty of death.

Mt:26.67 Then did they spit in his face, and buffeted him; and others
         smote him with the palms of their hands,

Mt:26.68 Saying, Prophesy unto us, thou Christ, Who is he that smote

Mt:26.69 Now Peter sat without in the palace: and a damsel came unto
         him, saying, Thou also wast with Jesus of Galilee.

Mt:26.70 But he denied before them all, saying, I know not what thou

Mt:26.71 And when he was gone out into the porch, another maid saw him,
         and said unto them that were there, This fellow was also with
         Jesus of Nazareth.

Mt:26.72 And again he denied with an oath, I do not know the man.

Mt:26.73 And after a while came unto him they that stood by, and said
         to Peter, Surely thou also art one of them; for thy speech
         bewrayeth thee.

Mt:26.74 Then began he to curse and to swear, saying, I know not the
         man. And immediately the cock crew.

Mt:26.75 And Peter remembered the word of Jesus, which said unto him,
         Before the cock crow, thou shalt deny me thrice. And he went
         out, and wept bitterly.

Mt:27.01 When the morning was come, all the chief priests and elders of
         the people took counsel against Jesus to put him to death:

Mt:27.02 And when they had bound him, they led him away, and delivered
         him to Pontius Pilate the governor.

Mt:27.03 Then Judas, which had betrayed him, when he saw that he was
         condemned, repented himself, and brought again the thirty
         pieces of silver to the chief priests and elders,

Mt:27.04 Saying, I have sinned in that I have betrayed the innocent
         blood. And they said, What is that to us? see thou to that.

Mt:27.05 And he cast down the pieces of silver in the temple, and
         departed, and went and hanged himself.

Mt:27.06 And the chief priests took the silver pieces, and said, It is
         not lawful for to put them into the treasury, because it is
         the price of blood.

Mt:27.07 And they took counsel, and bought with them the potter's
         field, to bury strangers in.

Mt:27.08 Wherefore that field was called, The field of blood, unto this

         Israel did value;

Mt:27.10 And gave them for the potter's field, as the Lord appointed

Mt:27.11 And Jesus stood before the governor: and the governor asked
         him, saying, Art thou the King of the Jews? And Jesus said
         unto him, Thou sayest.

Mt:27.12 And when he was accused of the chief priests and elders, he
         answered nothing.

Mt:27.13 Then said Pilate unto him, Hearest thou not how many things
         they witness against thee?

Mt:27.14 And he answered him to never a word; insomuch that the
         governor marvelled greatly.

Mt:27.15 Now at that feast the governor was wont to release unto the
         people a prisoner, whom they would.

Mt:27.16 And they had then a notable prisoner, called Barabbas.

Mt:27.17 Therefore when they were gathered together, Pilate said unto
         them, Whom will ye that I release unto you? Barabbas, or Jesus
         which is called Christ?

Mt:27.18 For he knew that for envy they had delivered him.

Mt:27.19 When he was set down on the judgment seat, his wife sent unto
         him, saying, Have thou nothing to do with that just man: for I
         have suffered many things this day in a dream because of him.

Mt:27.20 But the chief priests and elders persuaded the multitude that
         they should ask Barabbas, and destroy Jesus.

Mt:27.21 The governor answered and said unto them, Whether of the twain
         will ye that I release unto you? They said, Barabbas.

Mt:27.22 Pilate saith unto them, What shall I do then with Jesus which
         is called Christ? They all say unto him, Let him be crucified.

Mt:27.23 And the governor said, Why, what evil hath he done? But they
         cried out the more, saying, Let him be crucified.

Mt:27.24 When Pilate saw that he could prevail nothing, but that rather
         a tumult was made, he took water, and washed his hands before
         the multitude, saying, I am innocent of the blood of this just
         person: see ye to it.

Mt:27.25 Then answered all the people, and said, His blood be on us,
         and on our children.

Mt:27.26 Then released he Barabbas unto them: and when he had scourged
         Jesus, he delivered him to be crucified.

Mt:27.27 Then the soldiers of the governor took Jesus into the common
         hall, and gathered unto him the whole band of soldiers.

Mt:27.28 And they stripped him, and put on him a scarlet robe.

Mt:27.29 And when they had platted a crown of thorns, they put it upon
         his head, and a reed in his right hand: and they bowed the
         knee before him, and mocked him, saying, Hail, King of the

Mt:27.30 And they spit upon him, and took the reed, and smote him on
         the head.

Mt:27.31 And after that they had mocked him, they took the robe off
         from him, and put his own raiment on him, and led him away to
         crucify him.

Mt:27.32 And as they came out, they found a man of Cyrene, Simon by
         name: him they compelled to bear his cross.

Mt:27.33 And when they were come unto a place called Golgotha, that is
         to say, a place of a skull,

Mt:27.34 They gave him vinegar to drink mingled with gall: and when he
         had tasted thereof, he would not drink.

Mt:27.35 And they crucified him, and parted his garments, casting lots:
         that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet,
         They parted my garments among them, and upon my vesture did
         they cast lots.

Mt:27.36 And sitting down they watched him there;

Mt:27.37 And set up over his head his accusation written, THIS IS JESUS

Mt:27.38 Then were there two thieves crucified with him, one on the
         right hand, and another on the left.

Mt:27.39 And they that passed by reviled him, wagging their heads,

Mt:27.40 And saying, Thou that destroyest the temple, and buildest it
         in three days, save thyself. If thou be the Son of God, come
         down from the cross.

Mt:27.41 Likewise also the chief priests mocking him, with the scribes
         and elders, said,

Mt:27.42 He saved others; himself he cannot save. If he be the King of
         Israel, let him now come down from the cross, and we will
         believe him.

Mt:27.43 He trusted in God; let him deliver him now, if he will have
         him: for he said, I am the Son of God.

Mt:27.44 The thieves also, which were crucified with him, cast the same
         in his teeth.

Mt:27.45 Now from the sixth hour there was darkness over all the land
         unto the ninth hour.

Mt:27.46 And about the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice,
         saying, Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani? that is to say, My God, my
         God, why hast thou forsaken me?

Mt:27.47 Some of them that stood there, when they heard that, said,
         This man calleth for Elias.

Mt:27.48 And straightway one of them ran, and took a spunge, and filled
         it with vinegar, and put it on a reed, and gave him to drink.

Mt:27.49 The rest said, Let be, let us see whether Elias will come to
         save him.

Mt:27.50 Jesus, when he had cried again with a loud voice, yielded up
         the ghost.

Mt:27.51 And, behold, the veil of the temple was rent in twain from the
         top to the bottom; and the earth did quake, and the rocks

Mt:27.52 And the graves were opened; and many bodies of the saints
         which slept arose,

Mt:27.53 And came out of the graves after his resurrection, and went
         into the holy city, and appeared unto many.

Mt:27.54 Now when the centurion, and they that were with him, watching
         Jesus, saw the earthquake, and those things that were done,
         they feared greatly, saying, Truly this was the Son of God.

Mt:27.55 And many women were there beholding afar off, which followed
         Jesus from Galilee, ministering unto him:

Mt:27.56 Among which was Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of James
         and Joses, and the mother of Zebedees children.

Mt:27.57 When the even was come, there came a rich man of Arimathaea,
         named Joseph, who also himself was Jesus' disciple:

Mt:27.58 He went to Pilate, and begged the body of Jesus. Then Pilate
         commanded the body to be delivered.

Mt:27.59 And when Joseph had taken the body, he wrapped it in a clean
         linen cloth,

Mt:27.60 And laid it in his own new tomb, which he had hewn out in the
         rock: and he rolled a great stone to the door of the
         sepulchre, and departed.

Mt:27.61 And there was Mary Magdalene, and the other Mary, sitting over
         against the sepulchre.

Mt:27.62 Now the next day, that followed the day of the preparation,
         the chief priests and Pharisees came together unto Pilate,

Mt:27.63 Saying, Sir, we remember that that deceiver said, while he was
         yet alive, After three days I will rise again.

Mt:27.64 Command therefore that the sepulchre be made sure until the
         third day, lest his disciples come by night, and steal him
         away, and say unto the people, He is risen from the dead: so
         the last error shall be worse than the first.

Mt:27.65 Pilate said unto them, Ye have a watch: go your way, make it
         as sure as ye can.

Mt:27.66 So they went, and made the sepulchre sure, sealing the stone,
         and setting a watch

Mt:28.01 In the end of the sabbath, as it began to dawn toward the
         first day of the week, came Mary Magdalene and the other Mary
         to see the sepulchre.

Mt:28.02 And, behold, there was a great earthquake: for the angel of
         the Lord descended from heaven, and came and rolled back the
         stone from the door, and sat upon it.

Mt:28.03 His countenance was like lightning, and his raiment white as

Mt:28.04 And for fear of him the keepers did shake, and became as dead

Mt:28.05 And the angel answered and said unto the women, Fear not ye:
         for I know that ye seek Jesus, which was crucified.

Mt:28.06 He is not here: for he is risen, as he said. Come, see the
         place where the Lord lay.

Mt:28.07 And go quickly, and tell his disciples that he is risen from
         the dead; and, behold, he goeth before you into Galilee; there
         shall ye see him: lo, I have told you.

Mt:28.08 And they departed quickly from the sepulchre with fear and
         great joy; and did run to bring his disciples word.

Mt:28.09 And as they went to tell his disciples, behold, Jesus met
         them, saying, All hail. And they came and held him by the
         feet, and worshipped him.

Mt:28.10 Then said Jesus unto them, Be not afraid: go tell my brethren
         that they go into Galilee, and there shall they see me.

Mt:28.11 Now when they were going, behold, some of the watch came into
         the city, and shewed unto the chief priests all the things
         that were done.

Mt:28.12 And when they were assembled with the elders, and had taken
         counsel, they gave large money unto the soldiers,

Mt:28.13 Saying, Say ye, His disciples came by night, and stole him
         away while we slept.

Mt:28.14 And if this come to the governor's ears, we will persuade him,
         and secure you.

Mt:28.15 So they took the money, and did as they were taught: and this
         saying is commonly reported among the Jews until this day.

Mt:28.16 Then the eleven disciples went away into Galilee, into a
         mountain where Jesus had appointed them.

Mt:28.17 And when they saw him, they worshipped him: but some doubted.

Mt:28.18 And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given
         unto me in heaven and in earth.

Mt:28.19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the
         name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:

Mt:28.20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have
         commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end
         of the world. Amen.
