ceived that power went out from me : 47 and when the woman saw that she was not concealed, she came trembling; and falling down before him, declared before all the people for what cause she had touched him, and how she was immediately healed : 48 and he said to her, Daughter, thy faith hath cured thee; go in peace! 49 While he was yet speaking, there cometh one from the ruler of the synagogue's house, saying, Thy daughter is dead; trouble not the Master: 50 but Jesus hearing it, answered him, saying, Fear not: believe only, and she shall be healed. 51 And when he came to the house, he suffered no one to go in, but Peter, and James, and John, and the father and the mother of the maiden : 52 and they were all weeping, and bewailing her: but he said, Weep not; she is not dead, but sleepeth : 53 and they derided him, knowing that she was dead. 54 And he took her by the hand, and called out, saying, Maiden, arise : 55 and her breath returned, and she straightway arose : and he ordered that something should be given her to eat :

56 and her parents were astonished : but he charged them to tell no one what had been done.

CHAPTER IX.

ND calling his twelve disciples together, he gave them power and authority over all devils, and to cure diseases: 2 and he sent them to preach the kingdom of God, and to heal. 3 And he said to them, Take nothing for the way, neither staves, nor wallet, nor bread, nor money; neither have two COats : 4 and into whatever house ye enter, there dwell, and from thence depart: 5 and whoever will not receive you, when ye go out of that city, shake off the dust from your feet, for a testimony against them. 6 And they departed, and went through all the villages, preaching the gospel, and healing, every where. 7 And Herod the tetrarch heard of all that was done by him, and he was perplexed; because it was said by some, that John was risen from the dead; 8 and by some, that Elijah had appeared; and by others, that one of the old prophets was risen again :

9 and Herod said, John I have beheaded : but who is this, of whom I hear such things? and he was desirous to see him. 10 And when the apostles returned, they told him all that they had done: and he took them with him, and withdrew himself privately to the city called Bethsaida. 11 But when the multitudes knew it, they followed him : and he received them with welcome; and spake to them of the kingdom of God, and cured those that had need of healing. 12 And the day began already to decline; and the twelve came, and said to him, Send the multitude away, that they may go to the villages and farms around, and lodge, and find food; for here we are in a desert place: 13 but he said to them, Give ye them to eat: and they said, We have no more than five loaves and two fishes; unless we go and buy victuals for all this people: (for they were about five thousand men.) 14 And he said to his disciples, Make them sit down in companies of about fifty : 15 and they did so, and made them all sit down. 16 And taking the five loaves and the two fishes, and looking up to heaven, he blessed

them, and brake them, and gave them to the disciples to set before the multitude: 17 and they all eat, and were satisfied: and there was taken up of broken pieces that remained to them, twelve baskets. 18 And it came to pass, while he was apart from the multitude, praying, that his disciples were with him : and he asked them, saying, Whom say the multitudes that I am? 19 they answered and said, John the Baptist; but some say, Elijah ; and others, that one of the old prophets is risen again : 20 he said to them, But Ye, whom say ye that I am 2 And Peter answered and said, The Christ of God : 21 and he charged and commanded them, to tell that to no one; 22 saying, The Son of man must suffer many things, and be rejected by the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be slain, and be raised the third day. 23 And he said to them all, If any one will come after me, let him renounce himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me: 24 for whoever wisheth to save his life, will lose it: but he who loseth his life for my sake, will save it:

Matt. xvi. 9. Mark, ix. 28.

25 for, in what is a man profited, if he gain the whole world, and destroy or lose himself? 26 for, whoever shall be ashamed of me and of my words, of him will the Son of man be ashamed, when he cometh in his own and his Father's glory, and that of the holy angels: 27 but I tell you of a truth, there are some of these that stand here, who will not taste of death until they see the kingdom of God. 28 And it came to pass about eight days after these words, that he took Peter and John and James, and went up to the mountain to pray: 29 and, as he prayed, the appearance of his countenance was changed, and his raiment became white and glittering : 30 and, behold, two men conversed with him, who were Moses and Elijah : 31 who appeared in glory, and spake of his departure, which he was about to accomplish at Jerusalem : 32 and Peter, and they that were with him, had been weighed down with sleep; but awaking, they saw his glory, and the two men that stood with him : 33 and it came to pass, as they were departing from him, Peter said to Jesus, Master, it

is well for us to be here: and let us make three tabernacles, one for thee, and one for Moses, and one for Elijah ; not knowing what he said: 34 and while he thus spake, a cloud came and overshadowed them; and they were terrified as they entered the cloud: 35 and a voice came out of the cloud, saying, “This is my “beloved Son: hear him!” and when the voice was past, Jesus was found alone : 36 and they kept it secret; and told no one, in those days, any of the things which they had seen. 37 And it came to pass, on the next day, when they were come down from the mountain, that a great multitude met him : 38 and, behold, a man cried out from the crowd, saying, Master, I beseech thee, look on my son; for he is my only son: 39 and, lo, a spirit seizeth him, and he suddenly crieth out; and it convulseth him, so that he foameth; and it hardly departeth from him, when it hath bruised him : 40 and I besought thy disciples to cast it out; and they were not able. 41 And Jesus answering said, O unbelieving and perverse generation, how long shall I be with you, and endure you? Bring thy son hither.

42 And while he was coming to him, the devil threw him down, and convulsed him : but Jesus rebuked the unclean spirit, and healed the child, and restored him to his father: and they were all amazed at the mighty power of God. 43 And while all were wondering at all the things which Jesus did, he said to his disciples, 44 Lay up these words in your ears: That the Son of man is about to be delivered into the hands of men: 45 but they understood not that saying, and it was hidden from them, that they might not apprehend it: and they were afraid to ask him concerning that saying. 46 And a controversy arose among them, which of them was greatest: 47 and Jesus, perceiving the thought of their heart, took a child, and set it by him; 48 and he said to them, Whoever shall receive this child in my name, receiveth me: and whoever receiveth me, receiveth him who sent me : for he that is least among you all, is the greatest. 49 And John answered and said, Master, we saw one casting out devils in thy name; and we forbad him, because he followeth not with us:

50 and Jesus said to him, Forbid him not: for he that is not against you, is for you. 51 And it came to pass, when the time for his being received up into heaven was fully come, that he stedfastly set his face to go to Jerusalem; 52 and he sent messengers before his face: and they went, and entered into a village of the Samaritans, to make ready for him: 53 but they received him not, because his face was set to go to Jerusalem. 54 And when his disciples James and John saw this, they said, Lord, wilt thou that we command fire to come down from heaven, them 2 55 but he turned, and rebuked them; and they went to another village. 56 And it came to pass, as they were going in the way, that a certain man said to him, I will follow thee whithersoever thou goest: 57 but Jesus said to him, The foxes have holes, and the birds of the air have nests; but the Son of man hath not where he may lay his head. 58 And he said to another, Follow me: but he said, Lord, suffer me first to go and bury my father: 59 and he said to him, Let the dead bury their dead : but go thou and preach the kingdom of God. 60 And another also said, I will follow thee, Lord ; but let me first go and take leave of those who are in my house: 61 but Jesus said to him, No one that hath put his hand to the plough, and looketh back, is fitted for the kingdom of

and consume

God.

CHAPTER X.

ND after these things the Lord appointed seventy others also, and sent them by two and two before his face, to every city and place to which he was about to go. 2 And he said to them, The harvest truly is great, but the labourers are few : pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he would send forth labourers to his harvest : 3 Go ye away: behold, I send you forth as lambs among wolves: 4 carry neither purse, nor wallet, nor shoes; and salute no one by the way: 5 and into whatever house ye enter, first say, Peace be to this house ; 6 and if the son of peace is there, your peace shall rest upon it: but if not, it shall return to you : 7 and remain ye in the same house, eating and drinking

whatever they have: for the labourer is worthy of his hire: go not about, from house to house. 8 And into whatever city ye enter, and they receive you, eat such things as are set before you; 9 and heal the sick that are in it, and say to them, The kingdom of God is come near to you : 10 but, into whatever city ye enter, and they receive you not, go ye out into its streets, and say, 11 Even the dust of your city, which cleaveth to our feet, we wipe off against you : nevertheless, know ye this, that the kingdom of God is come near to you : 12 but I tell you, that it will be more tolerable in that day for Sodom, than for that city! 13 Wo to thee, Chorazin' wo to thee, Bethsaida' for, if the mighty works which have been done in you, had been done in Tyre and Sidon, they would in old time have repented, sitting in sackcloth and ashes: 14 but it will be more tolerable for Tyre and Sidon at the judgment, than for you : 15 and thou, Capernaum, shalt thou be exalted to heaven 2 thou shalt go down to hell! 16 He who listeneth to you,
