me only, but him also who Sent me. 37 And John answered him, saying, Master, we saw one casting out devils in thy name; and we forbad him, because he doth not follow us: 38 but Jesus said, Forbid him not; for there is no one that shall do a miracle in my name, who will readily speak evil of me; for, he that is not against us, is for us: 39 for, I tell you, verily, Whoever shall give you a cup of water to drink, in the name that ye are Christ's, will not lose his reward: 40 and whoever shall cause one of these little ones to stumble, that believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were cast into the sea : 41 and if thy hand cause thee to stumble, cut it off: it is better for thee to enter into life maimed, than to have two hands and to go into hell, into the unquenchable fire: 42 and if thy foot cause thee to stumble, cut it off: it is better for thee to enter lame into life, than to have two feet and to be cast into hell, into the unquenchable fire: 43 and if thine eye cause thee to stumble, pluck it out: it is better for thee to enter into the kingdom of God with

one eye, than to have two eyes and to be cast into hell fire; where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched:

CHAPTER XI.

AND rising up, he goeth from thence to the borders of Judea, even beyond the Jordan : and multitudes again resort to him; and he taught them again, as he was accustomed. 2 And the Pharisees came to him, to try him; and they asked him, Is it lawful for a man to put away his wife? 3 and he answered and said to them, What did Moses command you ? 4 and they said, Moses suffered a man to write a bill of divorcement, and so to put her away: 5 and Jesus answered and said to them; Because of the hardness of your heart, he wrote you this precept: 6 but, at the beginning of the creation it is written, “God

“made them male and fe“ male:” 7 and again, “ Therefore “shall a man leave his father “ and mother, and cleave to “his wife; and they two shall “ be one flesh :” 8 so that they are no longer two, but one flesh: 9 what, therefore, God hath joined together, let not man put asunder. 10 And in the house, his disciples asked him again concerning this matter: 11 and he saith to them, Whoever putteth away his wife, and marrieth another, committeth adultery against her : 12 and if she put away her husband, and be married to another, she committeth adultery. 13 And they brought little children to him, that he should touch them; and his disciples rebuked them : 14 but when Jesus saw it, he was much displeased, and said to them, Suffer the little children to come to me, and forbid them not ; for of such is the kingdom of God: 15 verily I tell you, Whosoever shall not receive the kingdom of God as a little child, will not enter therein: 16 and he took them up in his arms, put his hands upon them, and blessed them. 17 And when he was going out into the way, one came

running to him; and kneeling to him, asked him, Master, what good thing shall I do that I may inherit eternal life? 18 And Jesus said to him, Why speakest thou to me of

goodness? none is good but Matt. xix. 17.

one, that is, God: 19 thou knowest the commandments, “Thou shalt not “commit adultery, Thou shalt “not kill, Thou shalt not steal, “Thou shalt not bear false “witness, Thou shalt not de“fraud, Honour thy father and “ mother:” 20 and he answered and said to him, Master, all these I have kept from my youth : 21 and Jesus beholding him, loved him, and said to him, One thing thou lackest: go, sell whatever thou hast, and give it to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come, follow me: 22 but he was grieved at that saying, and went away sorrowful; for he had many possessions. 23 And Jesus looking round, saith to his disciples, How hardly they that have riches will enter into the kingdom of God 1 24 and the disciples were astonished at his words: but Jesus again answereth, and saith to them, Children, how hard it is to enter into the kingdom of God'

25 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: 26 and they were more exceedingly amazed, saying among themselves, Who then can be saved 2 27 but Jesus looking on them, saith, With men it is impossible, but not with God; for, with God, all things are possible. 28 Then Peter began to say to him, Lo, we have left all, and have followed thee: 29 and Jesus answered and said, Verily I tell you, There is no one that hath left house, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or children, or lands, for my sake, and the gospel's, 30 who will not now, in this time, receive an hundredfold for houses, and brethren, and sisters, and mothers, and children, and lands, with persecutions; and, in the world to come, eternal life: 31 but, many that are now first, will be last; and the last, first.

AND they were on the way, going up to Jerusalem; and Jesus went on before them: and they were amazed and terrified as they followed him.

2 And he again took the twelve, and began to tell them the things that were about to happen to him: 3 saying, Behold, we are going up to Jerusalem, and the Son of man will be betrayed to the chief priests and the scribes; and they will condemn him to death, and will deliver him to the Gentiles; 4 and they will mock him, and scourge him, and spit on him, and kill him : but, after three days, he will rise again. 5 And James and John, the sons of Zebedee, come to him, saying, Master, we would that thou shouldest do for us what we shall ask: 6 and he said to them, What would ye that I should do for you ? 7 they said to him, Grant to us, that we may sit, one on thy right hand, and the other on thy left hand, in thy glory. 8 But Jesus said to them, Ye know not what ye ask: are ye able to drink of the cup of which I drink? or to be baptized with the baptism with which I am baptized 2 9 and they say to him, We are able : and Jesus said to them, Ye shall indeed drink of the cup of which I drink; and with the baptism with which I am baptized, ye shall be baptized:

10 but, to sit on my right hand and on my left hand, is not mine to give; except to them for whom it is prepared. 11 And when the ten heard, it, they began to be indignant towards James and John : 12 but Jesus, calling them to him, saith to them, Ye know, that they who are accounted worthy to rule over the Gentiles, exercise lordship over them; and their great ones employ authority against them : 13 but, it is not so among you: but whoever among you would be great, shall be your minister: 14 and whoever of you would be first, shall be servant of all: 15 for, even the Son of man came not to be ministered to, but to minister, and to give his life a ransom for many. 16 And they came to Jericho: and as he went out of Jericho, with his disciples and a great multitude, a blind man, Bartimeus the son of Timeus, was sitting by the way-side begging: 17 and hearing that Jesus of Nazareth was there, he began to cry out, and to say, Jesus, thou son of David, have mercy on me ! 18 and many charged him to be silent: but he cried out much the more, Thou son of David, have mercy on me. 19 And Jesus stopped, and said, Call ye him ; and they

call the blind man, saying to him, Be of good comfort, rise; he calleth thee: 20 and, casting away his garment, he sprang up, and came to Jesus: 21 and Jesus answered and said to him, What wilt thou that I should do to thee? the blind man said to him, Rabboni (that is to say, my Lord), that I may see: 22 and Jesus said to him, Go; thy faith hath cured thee: and immediately he saw, and followed Jesus on the way.

CHAPTER XIII.

AND when they were come near to Jerusalem, to Bethphage and Bethany, at the Mount of Olives, he sendeth forth two of his disciples: 2 and saith to them, Go to the village which is over against you; and as soon as ye enter it, ye will find a colt tied, on which no man hath ever yet sat; loose it, and bring it: 3 and if any one say to you, Why do ye this? say ye, that the Lord hath need of it; and he will straightway send it hither. 4 And they went, and found a colt tied at a door, without, in the street; and they loose it: 5 and some of those that stood there said to them, What do ye, loosing the colt

Luke, xviii. 42.

6 and they said to them as Jesus had commanded them : and they let them go. 7 And they brought the colt to Jesus, and cast their garments on it; and he sat upon it: 8 and many spread their garments on the way: and others, boughs which they had cut out of the fields: 9 and they that went before, and they that followed, cried, saying, 10 Hosanna “Blessed is he “ who cometh, in the name “ of the Lord!” Blessed is the kingdom that cometh in the name of the Lord of our father David Hosanna in the highest ! 11 And he entered into Jerusalem, and into the temple: and when he had looked round on every thing, it being now late, he went out to Bethany, with the twelve. 12 And on the morrow, when they came out from Bethany, he hungred: 13 and seeing, at a distance, a fig-tree which had leaves, he went to it, as if he might perhaps find something on it; but when he came to it, he found nothing but leaves: for it was not the season of figs: 14 and he answered and said to it, No one eat fruit from thee any more, for ever! and his disciples heard him.

15 And they come to Jerusalem: and he went into the temple, and began to cast out them that sold and bought in the temple; and he overturned the tables of the moneychangers, and the seats of them that sold doves:

16 and he would not suffer any one to carry a vessel through the temple:

17 and he taught them, and said, Is it not written, “My “ house shall be called a house “ of prayer for all nations?”

but, ye have made it “a den Jer. vii. 11.

“ of thieves:” 18 and the chief priests and the scribes heard him, and sought how they might destroy him : for they feared him, because all the multitude was smitten with his doctrine: 19 and when it was evening, he went out of the city. 20 And as they passed by, early in the morning, they saw the fig-tree withered from the roots: 21 and Peter remembering, saith to him, Master, behold, the fig-tree which thou cursedst is withered away! 22 and Jesus answering, saith to them, Have faith in God: 23 for verily I tell you, That whoever shall say to this mountain, Be thou taken up and cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that the thing
