44 And they that did eat, were five thousand men.

45 And immediately he obliged his disciples to go up into the ship, that they might go before him over the water to Bethsaida: whilst he dismissed the people.

46 And when he had dismissed them he went up to the mountain to pray.

47 And when it was late, the ship was in the midst of the sea, and himself alone on the land.

48 And seeing them labouring in rowing (for the wind was against them) and about the fourth watch of the night he cometh to them walking upon the sea, and he would have passed by them.

49 But they seeing him walking upon the sea, thought it was an apparition, and they cried out.

50 For they all saw him, and were troubled. And immediately he spoke with them, and said to them: Have a good heart, it is I, fear ye not.

51 And he went up to them into the ship, and the wind ceased: and they were far more astonished within themselves:

52 For they understood not concerning the loaves; for their heart was blinded.

53 And when they had passed over, they came into the land of Genezareth, and set to the shore.

54 And when they were gone out of the ship, immediately they knew him:

55 And running through that whole country, they began to carry about in beds those that were sick, where they heard he

tered, into towns or into villages or cities, they laid the sick in the streets, and besought him that they might touch but the hem of his garment: and as many as touched him were made whole.

CHAP. VII.

Christ rebukes the Pharisees. He heals the daughter of the woman of Canaan: and the man that was deaf and dumb.

ND there assembled together A unto him the Pharisees and some of the scribes, coming from Jerusalem.

2 And when they had seen some of his disciples eat bread with common, that is, with unwashed hands, they found fault.

3 For the Pharisees, and all the Jews eat not without often washing their hands, holding the tradition of the ancients:

4 And when they come from the market, unless they be washed, they eat not: and many other things there are that have been delivered to them to observe, the washings of cups and of pots, and of brasen vessels and of beds.

5 And the Pharisees and scribes asked him: Why do not thy disciples walk according to the tradition of the ancients, but they eat bread with common hands?

6 But he answering, said to them: Well did Isaias prophesy of you hypocrites, as it is written: This people honoureth me with their lips, but their heart is far from me.

7 And in vain do they worship

me, teaching doctrines and pre- | ledge? understand you not that cepts of men. everything from without, entering into a man cannot defile him:

8 For leaving the commandment of God, you hold the tradition of men, the washings of pots and of cups: and many other things you do like to these. 9 And he said to them: Well do you make void the commandment of God, that you may keep your own tradition.

10 For Moses said: "Honour thy father and thy mother; and He that shall curse father or mother, dying let him die.

11 But you say: If a man shall say to his father or mother, Corban (which is a gift) what soever is from me, shall profit thee:

12 And farther you suffer him not to do anything for his father or mother,

13 Making void the word of God by your own tradition, which you have given forth. And many other such like things you do.

14 And calling again the multitude unto him, he said to them: Hear ye me all and understand.

15 There is nothing from without a man that entering into him, can defile him. But the things which come from a man, those are they that defile

a man.

16 If any man have ears to hear, let him hear.

17 And when he was come into the house from the multitude, his disciples asked him he parable.

18 And he saith to them: So are you also without know

19 Because it entereth not into his heart, but goeth into the belly, and goeth out into the privy, purging all meats?

20 But he said that the things which come out from a man, they defile a man.

21 For from within out of the heart of men proceed evil thoughts, adulteries, fornications, murders,

22 Thefts, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, lasciviousness, an evil eye, blasphemy, pride, foolishness.

25 All these evil things come from within, and defile a man.

24 And rising from thence he went into the coasts of Tyre and Sidon: and entering into a house, he would that no man should know it, and he could not be hid.

25 For a woman as soon as she heard of him, whose daughter had an unclean spirit, came in, and fell down at his feet.

26 For the woman was a Gentile, a Syrophenician born. And she besought him that he would cast forth the devil out of her daughter.

27 Who said to her: Suffer first the children to be filled: for it is not good to take the bread of the children, and cast it to the dogs.

28 But she answered and said to him: Yea, Lord; for the whelps also eat under the table of the crumbs of the children.

29 And he said to her: For this saying go thy way, the devil is gone out of thy daughter.

d Gen. & 5.-e Matt. 15, 21

30 And when she was come into her house, she found the girl lying upon the bed, and that the devil was gone out.

31 And again going out of the coasts of Tyre, he came by Sidon to the sea of Galilee through the midst of the coasts of Decapolis.

32 And they bring to him one deaf and dumb; and they besought him that he would lay his hand upon him.

33 And taking him from the multitude apart, he put his fingers into his ears, and spitting he touched his tongue;

34 And looking up to heaven, he groaned, and said to him: Ephpheta, which is, Be thou opened.

35 And immediately his ears were opened, and the string of his tongue was loosed, and he spoke right.

36 And he charged them that they should tell no man. But the more he charged them, so much the more a great deal did they publish it.

37 And so much the more did they wonder, saying: He hath done all things well; he hath made both the deaf to hear, and the dumb to speak.

now been with me three days, and have nothing to eat.

3 And if I shall send them away fasting to their home, they will faint in the way, for some of them came from afar off.

4 And his disciples answered him: From whence can any one fill them here with bread in the wilderness?

5 And he asked them: How many loaves have ye? Who said: Seven.

6 And taking the seven loaves, giving thanks he broke, and gave to his disciples for to set before them, and they set them before the people.

7 And they had a few little fishes; and he blessed them, and commanded them to be set before them.

8 And they did eat and were filled, and they took up that which was left of the fragments, seven baskets.

9 And they that had eaten were about four thousand: and he sent them away.

10 And immediately going up into a ship with his disciples, he came into the parts of Dalmanutha.

11 And the Pharisees came forth, and began to question with him, asking him a sign from heaven, tempting him.

12 And sighing deeply in spirit, he saith, Why doth this generation ask a sign? Amen I say to you, If a sign shall be given to this generation.

13 And leaving them he went up again into the ship, and passed to the other side of the water.

14 And they forgot to take

e Matt. 16, 1. Luke 11. 54. 71

bread: and they had but one loaf with them in the ship.

15 And he charged them saying: Take heed and beware of the leaven of the Pharisees, and of the leaven of Herod.

16 And they reasoned among themselves, saying: Because we have no bread,

17 Which JESUS knowing, saith to them: Why do you reason, because you have no bread? do you not yet know nor understand? have you still your heart blinded?

18 Having eyes see you not? and having ears hear you not? neither do you remember.

19 When I broke the five 40aves among five thousand; how many baskets full of fragments took you up? They say to him, Twelve.

20 When also the seven loaves among fourthousand, how many baskets of fragments took you up? And they say to him, Seven.

21 And he said to them: How do you not yet understand?

22 And they came to Bethsaida; and they bring to him a blind man, and they besought him that he would touch him.

23 A And taking the blind man by the hand he led him out of the town: and spitting upon his eyes, laying his hands on him, he asked him if he saw anything.

24 And looking up, he said: I see men as it were trees, walking.

25 After that again he laid his hands upon his eyes, and he began to see, and was restored, so that he saw all things clearly. 26 And he sent him into his

house, saying: Go into thy house, and if thou enter into the town, tell nobody.

27 And JESUS went out, and his disciples, into the towns of Cæsarea-Philippi; and in the way he asked his disciples, saying to them: Whom do men say that I am?

28 Who answered him saying: John the Baptist; but some Elias, and others as one of the prophets.

29 Then he saith to them: But whom do you say that I am?. Peter answering said to him: Thou art the Christ.

30 And he strictly charged them that they should not tell any man of him.

31 And he began to teach them, that the son of man must suffer many things, and be rejected by the ancients and by the high-priests, and the scribes, and be killed; and after three days rise again.

32 And he spoke the word openly. d And Peter taking him, began to rebuke him.

33 Who turning about and seeing his disciples, threatened Peter, saying: Go behind me, satan, because thou savourest not the things that are of God, but that are of men.

34 And calling the multitude together with his disciples, he said to them: If any man will follow me, let him deny him. self, and take up his cross, and follow me.

35 For whosoever will save his life, shall lose it; and whosoever shall lose his life for my sake and the gospel shall save it.

36 For what shall it profit. a man, if he gain the whole world, and suffer the loss of his soul? 87 Or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?

88 For he that shall be ashamed of me, and of my words in this adulterous and sinful generation: the son of man also will be ashamed of him, when he shall come in the glory of his Father with the holy angels.

39 And he said to them: Amen I say to you, that there are some of them that stand here, who shall not taste death, till they see the kingdom of God coming in power.

CHAP. IX.

6 And there was a cloud overshadowing them, and a voice came out of the cloud, saying: This is my most beloved son: hear ye him:

7 And immediately looking about, they saw no man any more but JESUS only with them.

8 d And as they came down from the mountain, he charged them not to tell any man what things they had seen, till the son of man shall be risen again from the dead.

9 And they kept the word to themselves; questioning together what that should mean, when he shall be risen from the dead.

10 And they asked him, sayWhy then do the Pharlthe dumb spirit. He teaches humility sees and scribes say that Elias

Christ is transfigured.

and to avoid scandal,

He casts, outing:

AND after six days Jesus taketh with him Peter and James and John, and leadeth them up into an high mountain apart by themselves, and was transfigured before them.

2 And his garments became shining and exceeding white as snow, so as no fuller upon earth

can make white.

3 And there appeared to them Elias with Moses; and they were talking with JESUS.

4 And Peter answering, said to JESUS: Rabbi, it is good for us to be here; and let us make three tabernacles, one for thee, and one for Moses, and one for Elias.

5 For he knew not what he said; for they were struck with fear:

a Matt. 10. 33. Luke 9. 26. and 12. 9.- Matt. 16. 28. Luke 9. 27.-c Matt. 17. 1. Luke 9.28

must come first?

11 Who answering said to them: Elias when he shall come first, shall restore all things, and as it is written of the son of man, that he must suffer many things and be despised.

12 But I say to you, that Elias also is come (and they have done to him whatsoever they would) as it is written of him.

13 And coming to his disciples, he saw a great multitude about them, and the scribes disputing with them.NIA

14 And presently all the peo ple seeing JESUS, was astonishes. and struck with fear and running to him, they saluted him.

15 And he asked them, What do you question about among you?

16 And one of the multitude answering, said: Master, I have
