§ 90. The transactions when our Lord atc bread with a chief Pharisee on the Sabbath.
AND it came to pass, as he
went into the house of one of the
chief Pharisees to eat bread on
the sabbath-day,that they watch-
2 And behold, there was a
certain man before him which
had the dropsy.
3 And Jesus answering, spake
unto the lawyers and Pharisees,
saying, Is it lawful to heal on the
4 And they held their peace.
And he took him, and healed
him, and let him go;
5 And answered them, say-
ing, Which of you shall have an
ass or an ox fallen into a pit,
and will not straightway pull
him out on the sabbath-day :
6 And they could not answer
him again to these things.
7 || And he put forth a pa-
rable to those which were bid-
den, when he marked how they
chose out the chief rooms; say
ing unto them,
8 When thou art bidden of
any man to a wedding, sit not
down in the highest room, lest
a more honourable man than
thou be bidden of him ; -
9 And he that bade thee and
him, come and say to thee, Give
this man place; and thou begin
with shame to take the lowest
10 But when thou art bid-
den, go and sit down in the
lowest room; that when he that
bade thee cometh, he may say
unto thee, Friend, go up higher:
then shalt thou have worship in
the presence of them that sit at
meat with thee.
11 For whosoever exalteth
himself shall be abased, and he
that humbleth himself shall be
12 Then said he also to
him that bade him, When thou
makest a dinner, or a supper,
call not thy friends, northy bre-
thren, neither thy kinsmen, nor
thy rich neighbours ; lest they
also bid thee again, and a recom-
pence be made thee.
13 But when thou makest a
feast, call the poor, the maimed,
the lame, the blind;
14 And thou shalt be blessed ;
for they cannot recompence thee;
for thou shalt be recompensed at
the resurrection of the just.
15 And when one of them
that sat at meat with him heard
these things, he said unto him,
Blessed is he that shall eatbread
in the kingdom of God.
16 Then said he unto him,
A certain man made a great sup-
per, and bade many :
17 And sent his servant at
supper-time to say to them that
were bidden, Come ; for all
things are now ready.
18 And they all with one
consent began to make excuse.
The first said unto him, I have
bought a piece of ground, and
I must needs go and see it : I
pray thee have me excused.
19 And another said, I have
bought five yoke of oxen, and I

go to prove them : I pray, thee
have me excused.
20 And another said, I have
married a wife, and therefore I
21 So that servant came, and
shewed his lord these things.
Then the master of the house,
being angry, said to his servant,
Go out quickly into the streets
and lanes of the city, and bring
in hither the poor,and the maim-
ed, and the halt, and the blind.
22 And the servant said, Lord,
it is done as thou hast com-
manded, and yet there is room.
23 And the lord said unto the
servant, Go out into the high-
ways and hedges, and compel
them to come in, that my house
may be filled.
24 For I say unto you, That
none of those men which were
bidden shall taste of my supper.
91. jesus states to the
multitude the difficulties at-
tending a profession of his re-
25 || And there went great
multitudes with him : and he
turned, and said unto them,
26. If any man come to me,
and hate not his father, and
mother, and wife, and children,
and brethren, and sisters, yea,
and his own life also, he cannot
be my disciple.
27 And whosoever doth not
bear his cross, and come after
me, cannot be my disciple.
28For which of you, intending
to build a tower, sitteth not
down first, and counteth the
cost, whether he have sufficient
to finish it 2
29 Lest haply, after he hath
laid the foundation, and is not
able to finish it, all that behold
it begin to mock him,
30 Saying, This man began to
build, and was not able to finish.
31 Or what king, going to
make war against another king,
sitteth not down first, and con-
sulteth whether he be able with
ten thousand to meet him that
cometh against him with twenty
32 Or else, while the other is
yet a great way off, he sendeth
an ambassage, and desireth con-
ditions of peace.
33 So likewise, whosoever he
be of you that forsaketh not all
that he hath, he cannot be my
34 | Salt is good: but if the
salt have lost his favour, where-
with shall it be seasoned :
35 It is neither fit for the
land, nor yet for the dunghill ;
but men cast it out. He that hath
'ears to hear, let him hear.
§ 92. Jesus defends himself against the Pharisees & Scribes, for instructing Publicans and
THEN drew near unto him
all the publicans and sinners for
to hear him.
2 And the Pharisees and scribes
murmured, saying, This man
receiveth sinners and eateth with

unto them, saying,
4 What man of you, having
an hundred sheep, if he lose one
of them, doth not leave the
ninety and nine in the wilder-
ness, and go after that which is
lost, until he find it?
5 And when he hath found it,
he layeth it on his shoulders, re-
6 And when he cometh
home, he calleth together his
friends and neighbours, saying
unto them, Rejoice with me ;
for I have found my sheep which
7 I say unto you, that like-
wise joy shall be in heaven over
one sinner that repenteth, more
than over ninety and nine just
persons, which need no repent-
8 || Either what woman hav-
ing ten pieces of silver, if she
lose one piece, doth not light a
candle, and sweep the house, and
seek diligently till she find it 2
9 And when she hath found
it, she calleth her friends and her
neighbours together,saying, Re-
joice with me; for I have found
the piece which I had lost.
10 Likewise, I say unto you,
there is joy in the presence of the
angels of God over one sinner
11 || And he said, A certain
man had two sons:
12 And the younger of them
said to his father, Father, give
me the portion of goods that
falleth to me. And he divided
unto them his living.
13 And not many days after
the younger son gathered all to-
gether, and took his journey into
