MATT. j.




a judge, which feared not God,
neither regarded man:
3 And there was a widow in
that city ; and she came unto
him, saying, Avenge me of mine
4 And he would not for a
while : but afterward he said
within himself, though I fear
not God, nor regard man ;
5 Yet, because this widow
troubleth me, I will avenge her,
lest by her continual coming she
weary me.
6 And the Lord said, Hear
what the unjust judge saith.
7 And shall not God avenge
his own elect, which cry day and
night unto him, though he bear
long with them :
8 I tell you that he will avenge
them speedily. Nevertheless, when
the Son of Man cometh, shall he

9 || And he spake this parable
unto certain which trusted in
themselves that they were righ-
teous, and despised others:

temple to pray; the one a Pha-

11 The Pharisee stood and
prayed thus with himself, God,
I thank thee, that I am not as

give tithes of all that I possess.
13 And the publican, standing
afar off, would not lift up so

but smote upon his breast, say-
ing, God be merciful to me a

§ 100. Jesus keeps the Feast of Dedication at jerusalem. 22 || And it was at Jerusalem# the feast of the dedication, and it was winter. 23 And Jesus walked in the temple in Solomon's porch. 24. Then came the Jews round about him, and said unto him, How long dost thou make us to doubt? If thou be the Christ, tell us plainly. 25 Jesus answered them, I told you, and ye believed not: the works that I do in my Father’s name, they bear witness of me. 26 But ye believe not, because ye are not of my sheep, as I said unto you. 27 My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me: 28 And I give unto them eternal life ; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand. 29 My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all ; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father's hand. 30 I and my Father are one. 31 || Then the Jews took up stones again to stone him. " 32 Jesus answered them, Many good works have I shewed you from my Father: for which of those works do ye stone me? 33 The Jews answered him, saying, For a good work we stone thee not ; but for blasphemy; and because that thou, being a man, makest thyself God.

34 Jesus answered them, Is it not written in your law, I said, Ye are gods? 35 If he called them gods, unto whom the word of God came, and the scripture cannot be broken ; 36 Say ye of him, whom the Father hath sanctified, and sent into the world, Thou blasphemest; because I said, I am the Son of God 2 37 If I do not the works of my Father, believe me not. 38 But if I do, though ye believe not me, believe the works: that ye may know and believe that the Father is in me, and I in him. 39 || Therefore they sought again to take him: but he escaped out of their hand,

§ 102. Jesus raises Lazarus from the Dead. The Consequences of this Miracle.

NOW a certain man was sick, named Lazarus, of Bethany, the town of Mary and her sister Martha. 2 (It was that Mary which anointed the Lord with ointment and wiped his feet with her hair, whose brotherLazarus was sick) 3 Therefore his sisters sent unto him, saying, Lord, behold, he whom thou lovest is sick. 4. When Jesus heard that, he said, This sickness is not unto - death, but for the glory of God, o - that the Son of God might be - -- glorified thereby. 5 Now Jesus loved Martha, - and her sister, and Lazarus. - - 6 When he had heard therefore that he was sick, he abode two days still in the same place where he was. 7. Then after that saith he to his disciples, Let us go into Judea again. 8 His disciples say unto him, Master, the Jews of late sought to stone thee ; and goest thou thither again? 9 Jesus answered, Are there not twelve hours in the day : If any man walk in the day, he stumbleth not, because he seeth the light of this world. 10 But if a man walk in the night, he stumbleth, because there is no light in him. 11. These things said he and after that he saith unto them, Our friend Lazarus sleepeth : but I go, that I may awake him out of sleep.
