1 To avoid occasions of offence, 3 to forgive one another....5 The power of faith, &c.

HEN said he unto the dis#. It is impossible but that offences will come : but wo wnto him through whom they come ! 2 It were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he cast into the sea, than that he should offend one of these little ones. 3 TI Take heed to yourselves: If thy brother trespass against thee, rebuke him; and if he repent, forgive him. 4 And if he trespass against thee seven times in a day, and seven times in a day turn again to thee, saying, I repent; thou shalt forgive him. 5 And the apostles said unto the Lord, Increase our faith. 6 And the Lord said, If ye

had faith as a grain of mustardseed, ye might say unto this sycamine-tree, Be thou plucked up by the root, and be thou planted in the sea; and it should obey you. 7 }. which of you having a servant ploughing, or feeding cattle, will say unto him by an by, when he is come from the field, Go and sit down to meat? 8 And will not rather say unto him, Make ready wherewith I may sup, and gird thyself, and serve me, till I have eaten and drunken ; and afterward thou shalt eat and drink! 9 Doth he thank that servant because he did the things that were commanded him " I troW not. 10 So likewise ye, when ye shall have done all those things which are commanded you, say, We are unprofitable servants: we have done that which was our duty to do. 11 TI And it came to pass,

as he went to Jerusalem, that he amaria and Galilee. 12 And as he entered into a men, that were lepers, which stood afar off: - - # their voices, and said, Jesus, Master, have mercy on us. he said unto them, Go shew yourselves unto the priests. And went, they were cleansed. 15 And one of them, when he back, and with a loud voice glorified God,

assed through the midst of certain village, there met him ten 13 And they lifted 14 And when he saw them, it came to pass, that, as they saw that he was healed, turned 16 And fell down on his face at his feet, giving him thanks: and he was a Samaritan. 17And Jesus answering, said, Were there not ten cleansed ? but where are the nine ! 18 There are not found that returned to give glory to God, save this stranger. 19 And he said unto him, Arise, go thy way: thy faith hath made thee whole. 20 [ And when he was demanded of the Pharisees when the kingdom of God should come, he answered them and said, The kingdom of God cometh not with observation. 21 Neither shall they say, Lo here ! or, Lo there! for behold, the kingdom of God is within

you. 22 And he said unto the disciples, The days will come, when ye shall desire to see one of the days of the Son of man, and ye shall not see it. 23 And they shall say to you, See here ! or, See there ! go not after them, nor follow them. 24 For as the lightning, that lighteneth out of the one part under heaven, shineth unto the other part under heaven; so shall also the Son of man be in his day. 25 But first must he suffer many things, and be rejected of this generation. 26 And as it was in the days of Noe, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man. 27 They did eat, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, and the flood came, and destroycd them all. 28 Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot: they did

eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded; 29 But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom, it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all : 30 Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed. 31 In that day, he which shall be upon the house-top, and his stuff in the house, let him not come down to take it away : and he that is in the field let him likewise not return back. 32 Remember Lot's wife. 33 Whosoever shall seek to save his life, shall lose it; and whosoevershall lose his life, shall preserve it. 34 I tell you, in that night there shall be two men in one bed; the one shall be taken, and the other shall be left. 35 Two women shall be grinding together; the one shall be taken, and the other left. 36 Two men shall be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left. 37 And they answered and said unto him, Where, Lord! And he said unto them, Wheresoever the body is, thither will the eagles be gathered together.

ND he spake a parable unto them to this end, that men ought always to pray, and not to saint; 2 Saying, There was in a city a judge, which feared not |God, neither regarded man.

3 And there was a widow in that city; and she came unto him, saying,Avengeme of mine adver

Nevertheless when the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth ! 9 And he spake this parable unto certain which trusted in themselves that they were righteous; and despised others: 10. Two men went up into the temple to pray; the one a Pharisee, and the other a publi

abased; and he that humbleth himself shall be exalted. 15. And they brought unto him also infants, that he would touch them : but when his disciples saw it, they rebuked them. 16 But Jesus called them wnto him, and said, Suffer little children to come unto me and forbid them not: for of such is the kingdom of God. 17 Verily, I say unto you, Whosoever shall not receive the kingdom of God as a little child, shall in no wise enter therein. 18 And a certain ruler asked him, saying, Good Master, what shall I do to inherit eternal life? 19 And Jesus said unto him, Why callest thoumegood? none ts good, save one, that is God 20 Thou knowest the COIllmandments, Do not commit

And he said, Lord, that I may receive my sight. 42. And Jesus said unto him, Receive thy sight: thy faith hath saved thee. 43 And immediately he received his sight, and followed him, glorifying God: and all the people, when they saw it, gave praise unto God.

1 Of Zaccheus the publican....13 The ten §: of money....41 Christ weepeth over erusalem, &c.

AN D Jesus entered and passed through Jericho. 2 And behold, there was a man named Zaccheus, which was the chief among the publicans, and he was rich. 3 And he sought to see Jesus who he was ; and could not for the press, because he was little of Stature. 4 And he ran before, and climbed up into a sycamore-tree to see him; for he was to pass that way. 5 And when Jesus came to the place, he looked up, and saw him, and said unto him Zaccheus, make haste, an come down : for to-day i must abide at thy house. 6 And herode haste, and +

came down, and received him joyfully. 7 And when they saw it, they all murmured, saying, That he was gone to be guest with a man that is a sinner. 8 And Zaccheus stood, and said unto the Lord; Behold, Lord, the half of my goods I give to the poor; and if I have taken any thing from any man by false accusation, I restore him four-fold. 9 And Jesus said unto him, This day is salvation come to this house, forasmuch as he also is the son of Abraham. 10 For the Son of man is come to seek and to save that which was lost. 11 And as they heard these things, he added and spake a arable, because he was nigh to erusalem, and because they thought that the kingdom of God should immediately appear. . 12 He said therefore, A certain nobleman went into a far country to receive for himself a kingdom, and to return. 13 And he called his ten servants, and delivered them ten pounds, and said unto them, Occupy till I come. 14 But his citizens hated

him, and sent a message after

him, saying, We will not have this man to reign over us. 15 And it came to pass, that when he was returned, having received the kingdom, then he

ing, Lord, thy pound hath gained ten pounds. 17 And he said unto him, Well, thou good servant: because thou hast been faithful in a very little, have thou authority over ten cities. 18 And the second came, saying, Lord, thy pound hath gained five pounds. 19 And he said likewise to him, Be thou also over five cities. 20 And another came, saying, Lord, behold here is thy pound, which I have kept laid up in a napkin : 21 For I feared thee, because thou art an austere man : thou takest up that thou layedst not down, and reapest that thou didst not sow. 22 And he saith unto him, Out of thine own mouth will I judgethee, thou wicked servant. Thou knewest that I was an austere man, taking up that I laid not down, and reaping that I did not sow: 23 Wherefore then gavest not thou my money into the bank, that at my coming I might have required mine own with usury " 24 And he said unto them that stood by, Take from him the o: and give it to him that ath ten pounds. 25 (And they said unto him, Lord, he hath ten pounds.) 26 For I say unto you, That unto every one which hath shall be given; and from him that
