13 And they say unto her, Woman, why weepest thou i. She saith unto them, Because they have taken away my Lord, and Iknow not where they have laid him. 14 And when she had thus said, she turned herself back and saw Jesus standing, and knew not that it was Jesus. 15 Jesus saith unto her, Woman, why weepest thou ! whom seekest thou ! She, supposing him to be the gardener, saith unto him, Sir, if thou have borne him hence, tell me where thou hast laid him, and I will take him away. 16Jesus saith unto her, Mary. She turned herself, and saith unto him, Rabboni, which is to say, Master. 17 Jesus saith unto her, Touch me not : for I am not yet ascended to my Father: but go to my brethren, and say unto them, I ascend unto my Father and your Father, and to my God and your God. 18 Mary Magdalene came and told the disciples that she had seen the Lord, and that he had spoken these things unto her. 19 TI Then the same day at evening, being the first day of the week, when the doors were shut where the disciples were assembled for fear of the Jews, came Jesus and stood in the midst, and saith unto them,


ord. 21 Then said Jesus to them again, Peace be unto you: as my Father hath sent me, even so send I you. 22 And when he had said this, he breathed on them, and saith unto them, Receive ye the Holy Ghost. 23 Whose soever sins ye remit, they are remitted unto them ; and whose soever sins ye retain, they are retained. 24 Ti But Thomas, one of the twelve, called Didymus, was not with them when Jesus Caine. 25 The other disciples therefore said unto him, 'We have seen the ford.

are they that have not seen, and yet have believed. 30 T And many other signs truly did Jesus in the presence of his disciples, which are not written in this book. 31 But these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God ; and that believingye might have life through his name.

1 Christ "p. to his disciples; 15 his charge to Peter, and foretelleth his death.

AFTER these things Jesus shewed himself again to the disciples at the sea of Tiberias: and on this wise shewed he himself. 2 There were together Simon

Peter, and Thomas called Didy-en

mus, and Nathanael of Cana in Galilee, and the sons of Zebedee, and two other of his disciples. 3 Simon Peter saith unto them, I go a fishing. They say unto him, We also go with thee. They went forth, and entered into a ship immediately; and that night they caught nothing. 4 But when the morning was now come, Jesus stood on the shore; but the disciples knew not that it was Jesus. 5Then Jesussaith unto them, Children, have ye any meat! They answered him, No. 6 And he said unto them

Cast the net on the right side of the ship, and yeshall find. They cast therefore, and now they were not able to draw it for the multitude of fishes.

7 Therefore that disciple whom Jesus loved saith unto Peter, It is the Lord. Now, when Simon Peter heard that it was the Lord, he girt his fish

er's coat unto him, (for he was naked) and did cast himself into the sea. 8 And the other disciples came in a little ship (for they were not far from land, but as it were two hundred cubits) dragging the net with fishes. 9 As soon then as they were come to land, they saw a fire of coals there, and fish laid thereon, and bread. 10 Jesus saith unto them, Bring of the fish which ye have now caught. 11 Simon Peter went up, and drew the net to land full of great fishes, a hundred and fifty and three: and for all there were so many, yet was not the net brok€n. 12 Jesus saith unto them Come and dine. And none of the disciples durst ask him, Who art thou! knowing that it was the Lord. 13 Jesus then cometh, and taketh bread, and giveth them, and fish likewise. 14 This is now the third time that Jesus shewed himself to his disciples, after that he was risen from the dead. 15 I So when they had dined, Jesus saith to Simon Peter, Simon son of Jonas, lovest thou me more than these? He saith unto him, Yea, Lord : thou knowest that I love thee. He saith unto him, Feed my lambs. 16 He saith to him again the second time, Simonson of Jonas, lovest thou me! He saith unto him, Yea, Lord : thou knowest that I love thee. He saith unto him, Teed my sheep. 17 He saith unto him the third time, Simon son of Jonas,

lovest thou me! Peter was griev-
ed because he said unto him the
third time, Lovest thou me !
And he said unto him, Lord,
thou knowest all things; thou
knowest that I love thee. Jesus
saith unto him, Feed my sheep.
18 Verily, verily, I say unto
thee, When thou wast young,
thou girdest thyself, and walk-
edst whither thou wouldest: but
when thoushalt be old, thou shalt
stretch forth thy hands, and an-
other shall gird thee, and carry
thee whither thou wouldest not.
19. This spake he, signifying
3. what death he should glorify
od. And when he had spok-
en this, he saith unto him, Fol-
low me.
20 Then, Peter, turning
about, seeth the disciple whom
Jesus loved, following; (which
also leaned on his breast at sup-
per, and said, Lord, which is he
that betrayeth thee!)

21 Peter seeing him, saith to Jesus, Lord, and what shal/ this man do 2 22 Jesus saith unto him, If I will that he tarry till I come, what is that to thee follow thou me. 23 Then went this saying abroad among the brethren, that that disciple should not die: yet Jesus said not unto him, He shall not die; but, if I will that he tarry till I come, what is that to thee! 24. This is the disciple which testifieth of these things, and wrote these things: and we know that his testimony is true. 25 And there are also many other things which Jesus §. the which, if they should be written every one, I suppose that even the world itself could not contain the books that should be written. Amen.

7 And he said unto them, It is not for you to know the times or the seasons which the Father hath put in his own power. 8 But ye shall receive power after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me, both in Jerusalem, and in all Judea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth. 9 And when he had spoken these things, while they beheld, he was taken up; and a cloud received him out of their sight. 10, And while they looked steadfastly toward heaven as he went up, behold, two men stood by them in white apparel; 11 Which also said, § IIlen of Galilee, why stand ye gazing up into heaven This same Jesus which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have seen him go into heaven. 12 Then returned they unto Jerusalem, from the mount called Olivet, which is from Jerusalem a sabbath-day's journey. 13 And when they were come in, they went up into an upper room, where abode both Peter, and j.ames, and John, and Andrew, Philip, and Thomas, Bartholomew, and Matthew, James the son of Alpheus, and Simon Zelotes, and Judas the brother of James. 14 These all continued with one accord in prayer and supplication, with the women, and Mary the mother of Jesus, and with his brethren. 15 TI And in those days Peterstood up in the midst of the disciples, and said, (the number of the names together were

about a hundred and twenty,) 16 Men and brethren, this scripture must needs have been #. which the Holy Ghost by the mouth of David spake before concerning Judas, which was guide to them that took Jesus. 17 For he was numbered with us, and had obtained part of this ministry. 18 Now this man purchased a field with the reward of iniquity; and falling headlong, he burst asunder in the midst, and all his bowels gushed out. 19 And it was known unto all the dwellers at Jerusalem; insomuch as that field is called in their proper tongue, Aceldama, that is to say, The field of blood. 20 For it is written in the book of Psalms, Let his habitation be desolate, and let no man dwell therein: and, His bishoprick let another take. 21 Wherefore of these men which have companied with us, all the time that the Lord Jesus went in and out among us, 22 Beginning from the baptism of John, unto that same day that he was taken up from us, must one be ordained to be a witness with us of his resurrection. 23 And they appointed two, Joseph called Barsabas, who was surnamed Justus, and Matthias. 24 And they prayed, and said, Thou Lord, which knowest the hearts of all men, shew whether of these two thou hast chosen, 25 That he may take part of this ministry and apostleship, from which Judas by transgression fell, that he might go to his own place. 26 And they gave forth their lots; and the lot fell upon Matthias; and he was numbered with the eleven apostles.


1 The apostles, filled with the Holy Ghost, speak divers languages....14 Peter's serinton.

AN D when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place. 2 And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting. 3 And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them. 4 And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance. 5 And there were dwelling at Jerusalem Jews, devout men, out of every nation underheaven. 6 Now when this was noised abroad, the multitude came together, and were confounded, because that every man heard them speak in his own language. 7 And they were all amazed, and marvelled, saying one to another, Behold, are not all these which speak, Galileans ! 8 And how hear we every man in our own tongue, wherein we were born ? 9 Parthians, and Medes, and Elamites, and the dwellers in Mesopotamia, and in Judea, o appadocia, in Pontus, and Sla.

10 Phrygia, and Pamphylia in Egypt, and in the parts o Lybia about Cyrene, and strangers of Rome, Jews and proselytes, 11 Cretes and Arabians, we do hear them speak in our goes the wonderful works of OCl.

12 And they were all amazed, and were in doubt, saying one to another, What meaneth this 13 Others mocking, said, These men are full of new wine. 14 Ti But Peter, standing up with the eleven, lifted up his voice, and said, unto them, Ye men of Judea, and all ye that dwell at Jerusalem, be this known unto you, and hearken to my words: 15 For these are not drunken, as ye suppose, seeing it is but the third hour of the day. 16 But this is that which was spoken by the prophet Joel, 17 And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my spirit upon all flesh : and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams: 18 And on my servants, and on my hand-maidens I will pour out in those days of my Spirit; and they shall prophesy: 19 And I will show wonders in heaven above, and signs in the earth beneath; blood, and fire, and vapour of smoke. 20 The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before that great and notable day of the Lord come.

21 And it o come to pass,
