THEN said he unto the dis-
ciples, It is impossible but that
offences will come : but woe
unto 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 |Take heed to yourselves:
If thy brother trespass against
thee, rebuke him ; and if he re-
pent, 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. o
5 || And the apostles said un-
to the Lord, Increase our faith.
6 And the Lord said, If ye
had faith as a grain of mustard
seed, ye might say unto this sy-
camine-tree, Be thou plucked
up by the root, and be thou
planted in the sea; and it should
obey you. -
7 But which of you, having a
servant ploughing or feedingcat-
tle, will say unto him by and by,
when he is come from the field,
Go and sit down to meat 3
8 And will not rather say un-

said, Lord, wilt thou that we
command fire to come down
from heaven,and consume them,
even as Elias did :
55 But he turned, and rebuk-
ed them, and said, Ye know not
what manner of spirit ye are of.
56 For the Son of man is not
come to destroy mens’ lives, but
to save them. And they went to
another village.

§ 96. Jesus cleanses ten


12 And as he entered into a
certain village,there met him ten
men that were lepers, which
stood afar off:
13 And they lifted up their
voices, and said, Jesus, Master,
have mercy on us.
14 And when he saw them, he
said unto them, Go shew your-
selves unto the priests. And it
came to pass, that, as they went,
they were cleansed.
15 And one of them, when he
saw that he was healed, turned
back, and with a loud voice glo-
rified God, -
16 And fell down on his face
at his feet, giving him thanks:
and he was a Samaritan.
17 And Jesus answering, said,
Where 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.

§ 97. The Pharisees ask when the Kingdom of God should come. Our Lord’s AnSwer.

20 And when he was de-
manded of the Pharisees,” when
the kingdom of God should
come, he answered them and
said, The kingdom of God com-
eth not with observation:
21. Neither shall they say, Lo
here ! or, lo there : for, behold,
the kingdom of God is within
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
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 destroy-
ed 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;

• * Place....Probably Judea.





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
31 In that day, he which shall
be upon the housetop, 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 grind-
ing 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, Where-
soever the body is, thither will
the eagles be gathered together.

§ 98. jesus speaks a parable to his Disciples, and another to certain who trusted in themselves that they were righteous.


AND he spake a parable unto them to this end, that men ought always to pray, and not to faint; 2 Saying, There was in a city
