And there 25 followed him great multitudes from Galilee and Decapolis and Jerusalem and Judæa and from beyond Jordan.
And seeing the multitudes, he went up into 5 the mountain : and when he had sat down, his disciples came unto him: and he opened his 2 mouth and taught them, saying,

stand; and it shineth unto all that are in the 16 house. Even so let your light shine before men, that they may see your good works, and
glorify your Father which is in heaven. 17 Think not that I came to destroy the law or
the prophets: I came not to destroy, but to 18 fulfil. For verily I say unto you, Till heaven

no wise pass away from the law, till all things be 19 accomplished. Whosoever therefore shall break
one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, shall be called least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and
teach them, he shall be called great in the 20 kingdom of heaven. For I say unto you,
that except your righteousness shall exceed the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, ye shall in no wise enter into the kingdom of
heaven. 21 Ye have heard that it was said to them of old
