THE SERMON ON THE MOUNT.
Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where 19 moth and rust doth corrupt,
and where thieves break through and steal: but lay up for yourselves treasures in 20 heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal: for where 21 your treasure is, there will your heart be also. The light 22 of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light. But if thine eye be 23 evil, thy whole body shall be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in thee be darkness, how great is that darkness !
No man can serve two masters : for either he will hate 24 the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon. Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, 25 what ye shall eat, or what ye
shall drink; nor yet for your body, what
Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment? Behold the fowls of the air : 26 for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. not much better than they ? Which of you by taking 27 thought can add one cubit unto his stature? And why 28 take ye thought for raiment ? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin : and yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory 29 was not arrayed like one of these. Wherefore, if God so 30 clothe the grass of the field, which to-day is, and to-morrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith ? Therefore take no thought, saying, 31 What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink ? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed ? (For after all these things 32 do the Gentiles seek :) for your heavenly Father knoweth that
have need of all these things. But seek ye first 33 the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. Take therefore no 34 thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought

THE SERMON ON THE MOUNT.
for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil
thereof. vii. 1, 2 Judge not, that ye be not judged. For with what
judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what 3 measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again. And
why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother's eye,
but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye? 4 Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the
mote out of thine eye; and, behold, a beam is in thine own 5 eye? Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine
own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the
mote out of thy brother's eye. 6 Give not that which is holy unto the dogs, neither cast ye your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under
their feet, and turn again and rend you. 7 Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; 8 knock, and it shall be opened unto you: for every one
that asketh receiveth ; and he that seeketh findeth; and to 9 him that knocketh it shall be opened. Or what man is
there of you, whom if his son ask bread, will he give him a 10 stone ? Or if he ask a fish, will he give him a serpent ? 11 If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto
your children, how much more shall your Father which is 12 in heaven give good things to them that ask him ? There
fore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you,
do ye even so to them: for this is the law and the prophets. 13 Enter
ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many 14 there be which go in thereat: because strait is the gate,
and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few
there be that find it. 15 Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's 16 clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. Ye shall
know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of 17 thorns, or figs of thistles ? Even so every good tree

39 bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, 18 neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. Every 19. tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. Wherefore by their fruits ye shall 20 know them.
Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall 21 enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my
Father which is in heaven. Many will say to 22 me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils ? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I 23 profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity. Therefore whosoever heareth these 24 sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock: and the rain 25 descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded
And every one that heareth these sayings 26 of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand: and the rain 27 descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it. And it came to pass, when Jesus had ended these 28 sayings, the people were astonished at his doctrine: for 29 he taught them as one having authority, and not as the Scribes.
When he was come down from the mountain, great viii. 1 multitudes followed him.

And it came to pass, that, as the people 1 Lake of Gennesaret. pressed upon him to hear the word of God, he stood by the lake of Gennesaret, and saw two ships 2 standing by the lake: but the fishermen were gone out of them, and were washing their nets.

down, and taught the people out of the ship.
Launch out into the deep, and let down your nets for a 5 draught. And Simon, answering, said unto him, Master,
we have toiled all the night, and have taken nothing: 6 nevertheless, at thy word I will let down the net. And
when they had this done, they inclosed a great multitude of 7 fishes : and their net brake. And they beckoned unto
their partners, which were in the other ship, that they
should come and help them. And they came, and filled 8 both the ships, so that they began to sink. When Simon
Peter saw it, he fell down at Jesus' knees, saying, Depart 9 from me; for I am a sinful man, O Lord. For he was
astonished, and all that were with him, at the draught of 10 the fishes which they had taken: and so was also James,
and John, the sons of Zebedee, which were partners with
Simon. And Jesus said unto Simon, Fear not; from 11 henceforth thou shalt catch men. And when they had
brought their ships to land, they forsook all, and followed him.

SECTION 22.–(62) Jesus heals a man sick of the palsy in Capernaum-(63) He calls
Leri, or Matthew, to follow him, and to be one of his disciples-(64) he is entertained in the house of Levi--and excuses himself for eating with publicans and sinners, and also his disciples for not observing fastings. Matt. ix. 2–9; Mark ii, 1–22; LUKE V. 17-39.
And again he entered into Capernaum, after Mut. ix. 28. some days; and it was noised that he was in the Luke v. 17–26. house. And straightway many were gathered Capernaum,
together, insomuch that there was no room to receive them, no, not so much as about the door; and he preached the word unto them. ?As he was teaching, there were Pharisees and doctors of the law sitting by, which were come out of every town of Galilee, and Judæa, and Jerusalem : and the power of the Lord was present to heal them.
1 Mk. ii. 1, 2. 3 Lu. v. 17. And, behold, men brought in a bed a man which was taken with a palsy, 'which was borne of four. And they sought means to bring him in, and to lay him before him. And when they could not find by what way they might bring him in ‘nigh unto him, “because of the multitude, they went upon the housetop, Othey uncovered the roof where he was: and when they had broken it up, they ? let him down through the tiling with his couch, $wherein the sick of the palsy lay, 'into the midst before Jesus. 10 When Jesus saw their faith, he said unto the sick of the palsy, Son,* " be of good cheer; thy sins be forgiven thee. And the Scribes and the Pharisees began to reason 1 in their hearts, Why doth this man thus speak blasphemies ? Who can forgive sins, but God only? And immediately when
