1 The Lineage Roll of Jesus Christ,—[1]

Son of David, Son of Abraham.

2
|Abraham| begat Isaac、

And |Isaac| begat Jacob,

And |Jacob| begat Judah、 and his brethren;
3
And |Judah| begat Perez and Zarah of Tamah、

And |Perez| begat Hezron,

And |Hezron| begat Ram;
4
And |Ram| begat Amminadab、

And |Amminadab| begat Nashon,

And |Nashon| begat Salmon;
5
And |Salmon| begat Boaz of Rahab、

And |Boaz| begat Obed of Ruth,

And |Obed| begat Jesse;
6
And |Jesse| begat ||David the King||.


And |David| begat Solomon of her [that had been the wife] of Uriah;
7
And |Solomon| begat Rehoboam、

And |Rehoboam| begat Abijah,

And |Abijah| begat Asa;
8
And |Asa| begat Jehoshaphat、

And |Jehoshaphat| begat Joram,

And |Joram| begat Uzziah;
9
|And Uzziah| begat Jotham、

And |Jotham| begat Ahaz,

And |Ahaz| begat Hezekiah:
10
And |Hezekiah| begat Manasseh、

And |Manasseh| begat Amon,

And |Amon| begat Josiah;
11
And |Josiah| begat Jechoniah, and his brethren,—upon the removal to Babylon.


12
And <after the removal to Babylon> |Jechoniah| begat Shealtiel, And |Shealtiel| begat Zerubbabel;
13
And |Zerubbabel| begat Abiud、

And |Abiud| begat Eliakim,

And |Eliakim| begat Azor;
14
And |Azor| begat Sadoc、

And |Sadoc| begat Achim,

And |Achim| begat Eliud;
15
And |Eliud| begat Eleazar、

And |Eleazar| begat Matthan,

And |Matthan| begat Jacob;—
16
And |Jacob| begat Joseph、 the husband of Mary, of whom was born Jesus,—who is called Christ.
17
So then <all´ the generations from Abraham unto David> are |fourteen| generations,

And <from David unto the removal to Babylon> |fourteen| generations;

And <from the removal to Babylon、 unto the Christ> |fourteen| generations.


§ 2. The Birth.

18Now the birth ||of [Jesus] Christ|| was |thus|: His mother Mary having been |betrothed| to |Joseph|,—|before they came together| she was found with child by |the| Holy Spirit.

19Moreover ||Joseph her husband|| being |righteous|, and yet unwilling to expose her,—intended |privately| to divorce her.20 But <when |these things| he had pondered> lo! ||a messenger[2] of the Lord|| |by dream| appeared to him、 saying,—

Joseph、 son of David! do not fear to take unto thee Mary thy wife, for <that which |in her| hath been begotten> is of [the] |Holy| Spirit.
21
Moreover she shall bring forth a son、 and thou shalt call his name Jesus,[3]—for |he|[4] will save his people from their sins.

22But ||all this|| hath come to pass、 that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the Lord、 through the prophet、 saying:

23
Lo! ||a[5] Virgin|| shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son,—and they shall call his name Emmanuel[6];

which is、 being translated,God with us.


24And Joseph、 |awaking| from his sleep, did as the messenger of the Lord directed him,—and took unto him his wife; 25 and knew her not, until she had brought forth a son,[7]—and he called his name Jesus.


§ 3. The Visit of the Wise Men.

2Now <when |Jesus| was born in Bethlehem of Judæa、 in the days of Herod the king> lo! |wise men from eastern parts| came into Jerusalem: 2 saying—

Where is he that hath been born king of the Jews? for we saw his star in the east, and have come to bow down to him.

3But <when King Herod heard> he was troubled, and all´ Jerusalem with him; 4 <and <assembling all´ the high-priests and scribes of the people> he was enquiring of them—

Where is |the Christ| to be born?

5 And |they| said to him、

In Bethlehem of Judæa,—
for |so| is it written[8] through the prophet:
6
And ||thou、 Bethlehem、 land of Judah||
|By no means least| art thou、 among the governors of Judah,
For |out of thee| shall one come forth to govern.
Who shall shepherd[9] my people Israel.

7 ||Then Herod|| |privately| calling the wise men, ascertained from them the time of the appearing´ star; 8 and sending them to Bethlehem, said—

Go search out accurately concerning the child,—and |as soon as ye find it| bring report unto me, that |I also| may come and bow myself down to it.

9Now |they、 hearing the king| went, and lo! |the star which they had seen in the east| was going before them、 until it went and stood over where the child was; 10 and、 seeing the star、 they rejoiced with exceeding great joy; 11 and、 coming into the house、 they saw the child, with Mary its mother,—and、 falling down、 prostrated themselves unto it, and、 opening their treasures、 offered unto it gifts—gold and frankincense and myrrh; 12 and <being instructed by dream、 not to return unto Herod> |by another way| retired they unto their own country.


§ 4. The Flight into Egypt, the Return, and the Settlement in Nazareth.

13 "Now <when they had retired> lo! ||a messenger of the Lord|| appeareth by dream unto Joseph、 saying,

Arise、 take unto thee the child and its mother、 and flee into Egypt, and be there、 until I tell thee,—for Herod is about to seek the child、 to destroy it.

14 And |he| arising、 took unto him the child and its mother、 by night, and retired into Egypt; 15 and was there、 until the death of Herod,— that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the Lord through the prophet、 saying,[10]

|Out of Egypt| called I my son.

16 |Then Herod | <seeing that he had been mocked by the wise men> was exceedingly enraged,—and sent and slew all´ the male children that were in Bethlehem、 and in all its bounds, from two years old and under, according to the time which he had ascertalned from the wise men.


17 |Then was fulfilled| that which was spoken through Jeremiah the prophet, saying[11]:

18

||A voice|| |in Ramah| was heard.
Weeping and great mourning,
Rachel weeping for her children
And would not be comforted,—because they are not.


19 But <when Herod was |dead|> lo! |a messenger of the Lord| appeareth by dream unto Joseph in Egypt; 20 saying—

Arise! and take unto thee the child and its mother, and be journeying into the land of Israel,—for they are dead、 who were seeking the life[12] of the child.[13]

21 "And |he| arising、 took unto him the child and its mother, and entered into the land of Israel. 22 <Hearing、 however、 that |Archelaus| was reigning over Judæa instead of his father Herod> he was afraid |thither| to go,—and so、 being instructed by dream、 he retired into the parts of Galilee; 23 and came and fixed his dwelling in a city called Nazareth,—that it might be fulfilled which was spoken through the prophets—

A |Nazarene| shall he be called.


§ 5. The Forerunner. Mk. i. 2-8; Luke iii. 3-17.

3 Now |in those days| came John the Immerser,[14] proclaiming in the wilderness of Judæa; 2 saying、

Repent ye,—for the kingdom of the heavens hath drawn near.[15]

3 For |this| is he who was spoken of through Isaiah the prophet, saying、[16]

A voice、 of one crying aloud!
|In the wilderness| prepare ye the way of the Lord,
|Straight| be making his paths.

4 But John |himself| had his raiment of camel's hair、 and a leathern girdle about his loins,—while |his food| was locusts and wild honey.


5 |Then| were going forth unto him—Jerusalem、 and all´ Judæa, and all´ the country round about the Jordan: 6 and were being immersed in the Jordan river、 by him, openly confessing their sins. 7 But <seeing |many of the Pharisees and Sadducees| coming unto his immersion> he said to them,—

Broods of vipers! who suggested to you,[17] to be fleeing from the coming wrath?

8

Bring forth、 therefore、 fruit worthy of repentance; 9 and think not to be saying within yourselves,—|As our father| we have ||Abraham||;
For、 I say unto you、 that God is able |out of these stones| to raise up children unto Abraham.

10

||Already also|| the axe |unto the root of the trees| is being laid,—|every´ tree、 therefore、 not bringing forth good fruit| is to be hewn down, and |into fire| to be cast.

11

|I| indeed、 am immersing you |in water, unto repentance|,—but <he who |after me| cometh is |mightier than I|, whose |sandals| I am not worthy to bear> ||he|| will immerse you ||in Holy Spirit and fire||:12 Whose fan is in his hand, and he will clear out his threshing-floor,—and will gather his wheat into the granary, but |the chaff| will he burn up with fire unquenchable.


13 |Then| cometh Jesus、 from Galilee to the Jordan、 unto John, — to be immersed by him. 14But |he| would have hindered him, saying — |I| have |need| ||by thee|| to be immersed, — and dost |thou| come unto me? 15But Jesus answering, said unto him, Suffer [me] even now, — for |thus| it becometh us、 to fulfil |all righteousness|; |Then| he suffered him. 16 And Jesus <having been immersed> straightway| went up from the water, — and lo ! the heavens were opened and he saw the Spirit of God^ descending like a dove coming upon him ; 17 and lo ! a voice out of the heavens, — saying, |This| is my Son^ the Beloved, in whom I delight.

§ 7. The Temptation. Mk. i. 12, 13 ; Lu. iv. 1-13.

4 1|Then| Jesus was led up into the wilderness, by the Spirit, to be tempted by the adversary; 2 and, fasting forty days and forty nights, — |afterwards| he hungered. 3 And, coming near, the tempter said to him, — <If thou art God's ||Son||> speak ! that ||these stones|| may become |loaves|. 4 But |he| answering, said, It is written, — ^ Not on bread alone shall man live, But on every declaration coming forth through the mouth of God. 5 |Then| the adversary taketh him with him, unto the holy city, — and he set him upon the pinnacle of the temple; 6 and saith to him — <If thou art God's ||Son||> cast thyself down, — for it is written, To his messengers will he give charge con- cerning thee ; And on hands will they bear thee up, Lest once thou strike ^against a stone Thy foot. 7 Jesus said to him, |Again| it is written, — <* Thou shalt not put to the test the Lord thy God. 8 |Again| the adversary taketh him with him, into an exceeding high mountain, — and pointeth out to him air the kingdoms of the world, and their glory; 9 and said to him, ||All these things|| will I give thee, — if thou wilt fall down and worship me. 10 Then saith Jesus unto him. Withdraw, Satan ! for it is written, — The Lord thy God shalt thou worship. And to him alone render divine service. 11 |Then| the adversary leaveth him, — and lo! |messengers| came near, and began ministering unto him.

§ 8. Jesus begins his Ministry in Galilee. Mk. i. 14-20 ; Lu. iv, 15, 16.

12 And <hearing that |John| had been delivered up>, he retired into Galilee; 13and^ forsaking Nazareth, he came and fixed his dwelling in Capernaum, which was by the lake, — within the bounds of Zebulun and Naphtali : 14 that it might be fulfilled, which was spoken through Isaiah the prophet, saying: 15 <Land of Zebulun^ and land of Naphtali, The lake-way across the Jordan, — Galilee of the nations^ 16 ||The people that was sitting in darkness|| |A great light| beheld, — And on them who were sitting in land and shade of death Light rose on them. 17 |From that time| began Jesus to be making pro- clamation, and saying, — Repent ye, for the kingdom of the heavens hath drawn near. 18 And <walking round beside the sea of Galilee> he saw two' brethren — Simon who is called Peter, and Andrew his brother, — casting a large fishing-net into the sea, for they were fishers; 19 and he saith unto them. Come after me, — And I will make you fishers |of men|. 20 And ||they|| |straightway| leaving the nets, fol- lowed him. 21 And <going forward from thence> he saw other' two' brethren — James the son of Zebedee,and John his brother — in the boat with Zebedee their father, putting in order their nets, — and he called them. 22 And ||they|| |straightway| leaving the boat and their father, followed him. 23 And Jesus was going round throughout all' Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, and pro- claiming the glad-message of the kingdom, — and curing every' disease, and every' infirmity, among the people. 24 And forth went the report of him into all Syria ; and they brought unto him all who were sick,|with divers' diseases and tortures| distressed, demonized and lunatic and paralyzed, — and he cured them. 25 And there followed him large multitudes — from Gali- lee, and Decapolis, and Jerusalem, and Judaea, and across the Jordan.

§ 9. The Sermon on the Mount. Lu. vi. 20-23.

5 1But [seeing the multitudes] he went up into a mountain, — and, when he had taken a seat, his disciples came unto him<i; 2 and, opening his mouth, he began teaching them, saying: — 3 ||Happy|| the destitute^ |in spirit|; For |theirs| is the kingdom of the heavens: 4 ||Happy|| they who mourn; For |they| shall be comforted^: 5 ||Happy|| the meek; For |they| shall inherit the earth ': 6 ||Happy|| they who hunger and thirst for righteousness ; For |they| shall be filled : 7 ||Happy|| the merciful; For |they| shall receive mercy: 8 ||Happy|| the pure |in heart|«; For |they| shall |see God|: 9||Happy|| the peacemakers; For |they|[18] shall be |called sons of God| : 10||Happy|| they who have been persecuted for righteousness' sake; For |theirs| is the kingdom of the heavens. 11||Happy|| are ye, whensoever they may reproach you and persecute you^ and say every' evil thing against you | falsely^ for my sake]: 12Rejoice and exult, because |your reward| is great in the heavens; for |so| persecuted they the prophets who were before you. 13 |Ye| are the salt[19] of the earth; but <if the salt become tasteless> wherewith shall it be salted? it is good |for nothing| any more,[20] save, being cast out, to be trampled on by men. 14 |Ye| are the light of the world : it is impossible for a city to be hid |on the top of a mountain| lying, 15Neither light they a lamp, and place it under the measure ; but upon the lampstand, and it giveth light to air that are in the house. 16||In like manner|| let your light shine before men, — that they may see your good works,— and glorify your Father who is in the heavens. 17 Do not think, that I came to pull down the law, or the prophets, — I came not to pull down, but to fulfil, 18 For |verily| I say unto you, <until the heaven and the earth shall pass away> |one least letter, or one point|[21] may in nowise pass away from the law, till all be accomplished. 19 <Whosoever, therefore, shall relax one of these commandments, the least, and teach men so> shall be called |least| in the kingdom of the heavens; but <whosoevor shall do and teach> |the same| shall be called |great| in the kingdom of the heavens. 20 For I say unto you, that <unless your' righteousness exceed that of the Scribes and Pharisees> |in nowise| may ye enter into the kingdom of the heavens. 21 Ye have heard, that it was said, to them of olden time, — Thou shall not commit murder,[22] and <whosoever shall commit murder> shall be |liable| to judgment. 22 But |I| say unto you, that <every' one who is angry with his brother> shall be |liable| to judgment, — and <whosoever shall say to his brother. Worthless one !> shall be |liable| to the high council ; and <whosoever shall say, Rebel!> shall be |liable| unto the fiery gehenna.[23] 23 <If, therefore, thou be bearing thy gift towards the altar, and |there| shouldst remember that |thy brother| hath aught against thee> 24 leave, there, thy gift before the altar, and withdraw, — |first| be reconciled unto thy brother, and |then| coming, be offering thy gift. 25 Be making agreement with thine adversary, quickly, while thou art with him, in the way, — lest once thine adversary deliver thee up unto the judge, and the judge, unto the officer, and |into prison! thou be cast. 26 |Verily| I say unto thee, |In nowise| mayest thou come out from thence, until thou pay the last halfpenny. 27 Ye have heard, that it was said, Thou shalt not commit adultery[24]: 28 But |I| say unto you, that <Every' one who looketh on a woman so as to covet her> |already| hath committed adultery with her, in his heart. 29 And <if |thy right eye|[25] is causing thee to stumble> pluck it out, and cast it from thee, — for it profiteth thee, that |one of thy members| should perish, and not ||thy whole body|| be cast into gehenna. 30 And <if !thy right hand|[26] is causing thee to stumble> cut it off, and cast it from thee, — for it profiteth thee, that |one of thy members| should perish, and not ||thy whole body|| |into gehenna| depart.

31 It was said, moreover,[27] <Whosoever shall divorce his wife> let him give her a writing of divorcement; 32 But |I|[28] say unto you, that <Everyone' who divorceth his wife — saving for unfaithfulness[29]> causeth her to be made an adulteress, — [and |whosoever shall marry a divorced woman| committeth adultery].

33 |Again| ye have heard that it was said, to them of olden time,[30] Thou shalt not swear falsely, — [31] But shalt render unto the Lord^ thine oath^. 34 But |I| tell you — not to swear |at all|[32]: Neither by heaven, because it is the throne of God,—[33]35 Nor by the earth, because it is his |footstool] ; Nor by Jerusalem, because it is the |city| of the Great King[34] ; 36 Nor ||by thine own head|| mayest thou swear, because thou art not able to make |one' hair| white or black. 37 But let your word be. Yea, yea, — Nay, nay; And I i what goeth beyond these]) is ]of evil]. 38 Ye have heard, that it was said, — Eye for eye, and tooth for tooth.[35]39 But |I| tell you, not to resist evil, —[36] Nay <whoever is smiting thee on the right' cheek> turn to him !the other' also] ; 40 And <him who is desiring thee to be judged, and to take ]thy tunic]> let him have |thy mantle also]. 41And <whosoever shall impress thee one' mile> go with him two' : 42 <To him who is asking thee> give ; And <him who is desiring from thee to borrow> do not thou turn away. 43 Ye have heard, that it was said, Thou shall love thy neighbour^ and hate thine enemy. 44 But |I| say unto you. Be loving your enemies, And praying for them who are persecuting you: 45 That ye may become sons of your Father who is in the heavens ; Because |his sun| he maketh arise on evil and good, And sendeth rain, on just and unjust. 46 For <if ye love them that love you> what reward have ye ? are not ||even the taxcollectors|| |the same thing| doing? 47 And <if ye salute your brethren only> what |more than common| are ye doing? are not ||even the nations|| |the same thing| doing? 48 ||Ye|| therefore, shall become ||perfect|| : As |your heavenly Father| is — perfect. 6 [But] take heed, that ye do not |your righteousness] before men, to be gazed at by them, — ||otherwise at least|| |reward| have ye none, with your Father who is in the heavens. 2 <When, therefore, thou mayest be doing an alms> do not sound a trumpet before thee, just as |the hypocrites| do, in the synagogues and in the streets — that they may be glorified by men, — |Verily| I say unto you, they are getting back their reward. 3 But <thou, when doing an alms> let not |thy left hand| know' what thy right hand is doing ; 4 that thine alms may be in secret, — and |thy Father, who seeth in secret| will give it back to thee. 5 And <when ye may be praying> ye shall not be as the hypocrites, because they love <in the synagogues, and at the corners of the broad ways> to take their stand and pray, that they may shine before men ; |Verily| I say unto you, they are getting back their reward. 6 But <thou, when thou wouldest pray> enter into thy closet, and^ fastening thy door pray^ unto thy Father who is in secret, — and ]thy Father who seeth in secret] will reward thee. 'And ]being at prayer] use not vain repetitions, just like the nations, — for they think, that |in their much speaking| they shall be heard ; 8 do not, therefore, make yourselves like them, for [God] your Father knoweth of what things ye have |need], before ye ask him. 9 ]Thus| therefore pray |ye| ^ : Our Father, who art in the heavens, — Hallowed be thy name, 10 Come may thy kingdom, — Accomplished* be thy will, |as in heaven| also on earth: 11 |Our needful bread| give us, this day; 12 And forgive us our debts, as |we also| have forgiven our debtors ; 13 And bring us not into temptation. But rescue us from the evil one.!" 14 For <if ye forgive men their faults> ||Your Father who is in the heavens|| will forgive |even you|; 15 But <if ye forgive not men [their faults]> Neither will your Father forgive |your faults|. 16 And <when ye may be fasting> become not ye, as the hypocrites, of sullen countenance, — for they darken their looks, that they may appear |unto men| to be fasting: |Verily| I say unto you, they are getting back their reward. 17 But<when |thou| art fasting> anoint thy head, and |thy face| wash,— 18 that thou do not appear ]unto men] to be fasting, but to thy Father who is in secret, — and |thy Father who seeth in secret] will reward thee. 19 Be not laying up for yourselves treasures upon the earth, where |moth and rust] do tarnish, and where ]thieves] dig through and steal; 20 but be laying up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where ]neither moth nor rust] doth tarnish, and where |thieves| dig not through nor steal: 21 for <where ]thy treasure] is> |there| will be |thy heart [also]|. 22 |The lamp of the body| is the eye : <If therefore thine eye be single> ]]Thy whole body]] shall be |light«d up| ; 23 But <if thine eye be |evil|> ||Thy whole body|| shall be |in the dark| ; — <If therefore ||the light which is in thee|| is |darkness|> ||The darkness|| |how great|! 24 ||Noone|| |unto two' masters| can be in service; For either ]the one| he will hate, and |the other] love. Or |one| he will hold to, and |the other| despise : Ye cannot be in service |unto God| and |unto Riches|.d 25 |For this cause] I say unto you : Be not anxious e for your life,' What ye shall eat [or what ye shall drink], — Or for your body. What ye shall put on : Is not ]the life] more than |the food|? And ]the body] than |the raiment|? 26 Observe intently ||the birds of the heaven||, — That they neither sow, nor reap, nor gather into barns, And yet ]your heavenly Father) feedeth |them] : Are not ||ye|| much better than |they|? 27 But who from among you、 being anxious、 can add to his stature one cubit? 28 And |about clothing| why are ye anxious? Consider well the lilies of the field, how they grow,— They toil not neither do they spin; 29 And yet, I say unto you, ||Not even Solomon, in all his glory|| was arrayed like |one of these|! 30 Now <if the grass of the field— which |to-day| is, and ||to-morrow|| |into an oven| is cast- God thus adorneth> Not much rather |you| little of faith? 31 Do not then be anxious、 saying, What shall we eat? or What shall we drink? or Wherewithal shall we be arrayed? 32 For ||all these things|| |the nations| seek after,— For your heavenly Father |knoweth| that ye are needing |all´ these things|. 33 But be seeking first, the kingdom and its righteousness,— And |all these things| shall be added unto you. 34 Do not、 then、 be anxious for the morrow; |For the morrow| will be anxious |for itself|: |Sufficient for the day| is the evil thereof.


1 Judge not, that ye be not judged;— 2 For <with what judgment ye judge> shall ye be judged,— And <with what measure ye mete> shall it be measured unto you. 3 Why, moreover, beholdest thou the mote, in the eye of thy brother,— While |the beam´ in thine own´ eye| thou dost not consider? 4 Or how wilt thou say unto thy brother. Let me cast the mote out of thine eye,— When lo! ||a beam|| is in thine own´ eye? 5 Hypocrite! cast first |out of thine own eye| ||the beam||,— And |then| shalt thou see clearly to cast the mote, out of the eye of thy brother. 6 Do not give what is holy unto dogs. Neither cast ye your pearls before swine,— Lest once they trample |them| down with their feet. And、 turning、 tear ||you||. 7 Be asking、 and it shall be given you, Be seeking、 and ye shall find,— Be knocking, and it shall be opened unto you. 8 For |whosoever asketh| receiveth. And |he that seeketh| flndeth,— And |to him that knocketh| shall it be opened. 9 Or what man |from among yourselves|, Whom his son shall ask for a loaf,— |A stone| will give him? 10 Or |a fish also| shall ask,— |A serpent| will give him? 11 <If then ||ye|| being |evil| know how |good gifts| to be giving unto your children> ||How much more|| will |your Father who is in the heavens| give good things to them that ask |him|? 12 <Whatsoever things, therefore, ye would, that men be doing unto you> ||So|| be ||ye also|| doing |unto them|,— For |this| is the law and the prophets. 13 Enter[37] ye in at |the narrow´ gate|; Because broad and roomy is the way[38]) that leadeth unto destruction,— And |many| are they who enter thereby: 14 Because |narrow| is the gate, and |confined| the way, that leadeth unto life,— And |few| are they who find |it|. 15 Beware of false prophets, Who come unto you in clothing of sheep,— While |within| they are ravening wolves. 16 |By their fruits|[39] shall ye find |them| out,— Unless perhaps men gather — <From thorns> grapes! Or <from thistles> figs! 17 So ||every good tree|| |fine fruit| produceth,— Whereas ||the worthless´ tree|| |evil fruit| produceth : 18 It is |impossible| for a ||good tree|| to be bearing |evil fruit|. Neither doth ||a worthless tree|| produce |fine fruit|. 19 ||Every´ tree that beareth not fine fruit||[40] Is hewn down, and |into fire| is cast. 20 After all then |by their fruits| shall ye find |them| out.— 21 ||Not every one that saith unto me. Lord! Lord!|| shall enter into the kingdom of the heavens,— But he that doeth the will of my Father who is in the heavens. 22 |Many| will say unto me, in |that| day, Lord! Lord![41] did we not in thy name prophesy,[42] And |in thy name| cast |demons| out,— And |in thy name| ||many works of power|| perform? 23 And |then| will I confess unto them, |Never| have I acknowledged[43] you,— Depart from me、 ye workers of lawlessness![44]24 <Every one, therefore, who heareth [these] my words, and doeth them>[45] Shall be likened to a prudent man, who built his house upon the rock; 25 And the rain descended, and the streams came, and the winds blew, and rushed against that house, and it fell not; For it had been founded upon the rock. 26 <And every one who heareth these my words, and doeth them not> Shall be likened unto a foolish man, who built his house upon the sand; 27 And the rain descended, and the streams came, and the winds blew, and dashed against that house, and it fell; and |the fall thereof I was |great|. 28 And it came to pass <when Jesus ended these words> with astonishment were the multitudes being struck at his teaching; 29 for he was teaching them as one having |authonty|, and not as their Scribes.

§ 10. A Leper cleansed. Mk. i. 40 ; Lu. v. 12-14.

1 And <when he came down from the mountain> there followed him large multitudes. 2 And lo! |a leper| coming near、 began to bow down to him、 saying, — Lord! |if thou be willing| thou canst cleanse me. 3 And、 stretching forth the hand、 he touched him, saying,— I am willing, be cleansed! And |straightway| cleansed was his leprosy. 4 And Jesus saith unto him, Mind! tell |no one|,— but withdraw, |thyself| shew to the priest、[46] and offer the gift which Moses directed |for a witness unto them|.

§ 11. A Centurion's Servant healed. Lu. vii. 1-10.

5 And <when he entered into Capernaum> there came near unto him a centurion, beseeching him, 6 and saying. Lord! |my servant| is laid prostrate in the house, a paralytic |fearfully tortured|. 7 He saith unto him, |I| will come and cure him. 8 But the centurion, answering、 said, Lord! I am of no consideration, that |under my roof| thou shouldest enter,— but |only say with a word! and healed shall be my servant. 9 For |I also| am a man [set] under authority, having under myself, soldiers,— and I say to this one. Go! and he goeth, and to another, Come! and he cometh, and |to my servant| Do this! and he doeth it. 10 Now Jesus, hearing, marvelled, and said to them that followed,— |Verily| I say unto you, [With no one in Israel| ||such faith as this|| have I found. 11 But I say unto you, |Many from east and west|[47] will have come,[48] And shall recline with Abraham and Isaac and Jacob, in the kingdom of the heavens; 12 Whereas |the sons of the kingdom|[49]' shall be cast forth into the darkness outside,— |There| will be wailing and gnashing of teeth. 13 And Jesus said unto the centurion, Withdraw! and |as thou hast believed| be it done for thee. And healed was the servant in that hour.

§ 12. Peter's Mother-in-law cured, and many others. Mk. i. 29-36 ; Lu. iv. 38-40.

14 And Jesus, coming into the house of Peter saw his mother-in-law laid prostrate and in a fever, 15 and he touched her hand, and the fever left her,— and she arose, and began ministering unto him. 16 But、 when |evening| came, they brought unto him many demonized,— and he cast out the spirits with a word, and |all~ who were sick| he cured: 17 that it might be fulfilled, which was spoken through Isaiah the prophet, saying,— ||Himself|| |our weaknesses| took, and |diseases| bare.[50]

§ 13. A Scribe and a Disciple put to the test.

18 Now Jesus <seeing a multitude about him> gave orders to depart unto the other side. 19 And a certain scribe, coming near, said unto him,— Teacher; I will follow thee, whithersoever Thou goest. 20 And Jesus saith unto him: ||The foxes|| have |dens|, And |the birds of the heavens| nests, — But ||the Son of Man|| hath not where |his head he may recline|. 21 And |another of the disciples| saith unto him,— Lord! suffer me |first| to depart, and bury my father. 22 But |Jesus| saith unto him, — Be following me, And leave |the dead| to bury |their own~ dead|.

§ 14. A Storm rebuked. Mk. iv. 35-41; Lu. viii. 22-25.

23 And <when he |entered| into a boat> his disciples followed him. 24 And lo! |a great squall| arose in the sea, so that |the boat| was being covered[51] |by the waves|, — but |he| was sleeping. 25 And, coming near, they aroused him, saying, Master! save, we perish! 26 And he saith unto them, |Why| are ye |fearful|, little of faith? |Then, aroused| he rebuked the winds and the sea,— and it became a great calm. 27 But |the men| marvelled, saying, Whence is this one,— that ||both the winds and the sea|| unto him, give ear ?

§ 15. Two Demonaics delivered. Mk. v. 1-20; Lu. viii. 26-39.

28 And <when he |came| unto the other side、 into the country of the Gadarenes> there met him、 two~ men demonized, lout of the tombs| coming forth,— fierce exceedingly, so that no one could pass that way; 29 and lo! they cried aloud, saying. What have we in common with thee、[52] O Son of God? Hast thou come hither, |before the right time| to torment us? 30 Now there was、 far from them、 a herd of many swine, feeding; 31 and |the demons| began to beseech him, saying、

<If thou dost cast us out> Send us away、 into the herd of swine.

32 And he said unto them、

Withdraw!

So |they| going out、 departed into the swine, — and lo! all' the herd rushed down the cliff, into the sea, and died in the waters. 33 And |they who were feeding them| fled — and、 departing into the city、 reported all things, and what concerned them who had been demonized. 34 And lo! |all' the cityl came out to meet Jesus, — and、 seeing him、 they besought that he would pass on from their bounds.

§ 16. A Paralytic forgiven and healed. Mk. ii. 3-12 ; Lu. v. 18-26.

1 And、 entering into a boat、 he crossed over, and came into his own city. 2 And lo! they were bringing unto him a paralytic、 |on a couch| laid prostrate; and Jesus、 |seeing| their faith、 said to the paralytic, — Take courage! child, forgiven are thy sins. 3 And lo! |certain of the scribes| said within themselves, — |This man| speaketh profanely! 4 And Jesus |knowing| their inward thoughts, said, — To what end are ye cherishing evil thoughts within your hearts ? 5 For which is easier — To say、 Forgiven are thy sins, — Or to say、 Rise and be walking! 6 But <that ye may know、 that the Son of Man hath |authority| upon the earth、 to be forgiving sins> |Then| saith he to the paralytic, — Rise! take up thy couch. And withdraw unto thy house. 7 And、 rising、 he departed unto his house. 8 Now the multitudes |seeing| were struck with fear, and glorified the God who had given authority |such as this| ||unto men||.

§ 17. Matthew called. Mk. ii. 13-17 ; Lu. v. 27-32.

9 And Jesus <passing aside from thence> saw a man presiding over the tax-office、 called |Matthew| and saith unto him, — Be following me. And arising、 he followed him. 10 And it came to pass < as he was reclining in the house> that lo! |many' tax-collectors and sinners| came, and were reclining together with Jesus and his disciples. 11 And |the Pharisees| ||observing it|| began to say unto his disciples, — Wherefore |with tax-collectors and sinners| doth your Teacher eat? 12 And |he| hearing it、 said, — No need have the strong、 of a physician, but they who are sick. 13 But go ye、 and learn what this meaneth, — [53] ||Mercy|| I desire、 and not |sacrifice| [54];

For I came not、 to call the righteous, but sinners,

§ 18. Then will they fast. Mk. ii. 18-22 ; Lu. v. 33-38.

14 Then come near unto him the disciples of John, saying, — Wherefore do |we、 and the Pharisees| fast, [55] whereas |thy disciples| ||fast not||? 15 And Jesus said unto them, — Can |the sons [56] of the bridechamber| mourn, so long as |the bridegroom| is |with them| ? But days will come、 when the bridegroom |shall be taken from them|, and |then| will they fast. 16 Howbeit |no one| layeth on a patch of unshrunk cloth、 upon an old garment, — for the shrinking of it teareth away from the garment, and |a worse rent| is made. 17 Neither pour they new wine into old skins; otherwise at least, the skins are burst、 and |the wine| runneth out, and |the skins| are spoiled, — but they pour new [57] wine into unused [58] skins, and |both| are together preserved.

§ 19. The Daughter of Jairus raised; and the Woman with a Flow of Blood cured. Mk. v. 22-43; Lu. viii. 41-56.

18 <While |these things| he was speaking unto them> lo! |a [certain] ruler| came, and began bowing down to him, saying, — |My daughter| just now died! But come、 and lay thy hand upon |her|, and she shall live, 19 And Jesus、 arising、 was following him, also his disciples.

20 And lo! ||a woman、 having a flow of blood twelve years|| |coming near behind| touched the fringe of his mantle. 21 For she kept saying within herself, — <If only I touch his mantle> I shall be made well! 22 And ||Jesus|| |turning and seeing her| said, — Take courage! daughter, |Thy faith| hath made thee well. And the woman was made well, from that hour.

23 And <Jesus |coming| into the house of the ruler, and seeing the flute-players and the multitude in confuslon> was saying:

24 Give place! for the maiden died not, but is sleeping. And they began to deride him. 25 But <when the multitude had been put forth> he went in, and grasped her hand, — and the maiden arose. 26 And forth went this report、 into the whole of that land.

§ 20. Two Blind men、 a Demoniac, and Many Others cured the Kingdom proclaimed; and the Multitudes pitied.

27 And <as Jesus |was passing aside from thence|> there followed him、 two´ blind men,[59] crying aloud and saying, — Have mercy on us, O Son of David! 28 And <when he entered the houso> the blind men came unto him, — and Jesus saith unto them, Believe ye、 that I can |do this|? They say unto him、 Yea, Lord! 29 Then touched he their eyes, saying、 |According to your faith| be it done unto you. 30 And their eyes were opened. And Jesus |sternly charged them (saying, Mind! let no one know! 31 |They| however、 going forth、 made him known throughout the whole of that land. 32 And <as |they| were going forth> lo! there was brought to him、 a dumb man, demonized.[60]33 And <the demon being cast out> the dumb man spake; and the multitudes marvelled, saying,— |Never| was it seen thus、 in Israel. 34 [But |the Pharisees| began to say, |In the ruler of the demons| is he casting out the demons.] 35 And Jesus was going round all the cities and the villages, teaching in their synagogues、 and proclaiming、 the glad-message of the kingdom, — and curing every´ disease、 and every´ infirmity. 36 But |seeing the multitudes| he was moved with compassion concerning them, be- cause they were torn and thrown down、 like sheep having no shepherd.[61] 37 |Then| saith he unto his disciples, — |The harvest|[62] indeed、 is great, But |the labourers| few; 38 Beg ye, therefore, of the Lord of the harvest, — That he would thrust forth labourers、 into his harvest.

§ 21. The Twelve first sent forth. Mk. vi. 7 f ; Lu. ix. 1 f: cp. §77.

1 And <calling near his twelve´ disciples> he gave them authority over impure spirits, — so as to be casting them out, and curing every´ disease、 and every´ infirmity. 2 Now |the twelve´ apostles´ names|[63] are these: — First Simon, who is called Peter, and Andrew, his brother, — And James, the son of Zebedee, and John, his brother; 3 Philip, and Bartholomew, — Thomas, and Matthew, the tax-collector ; James, the son of Alphaeus, and Thadseus ; 4 Simon, the zealot, and Judas Iscariot, who also delivered him up. 5 |These twelve| Jesus sent forth, charging them, saying: — |Into any way to the nations| do not depart, — And |into any city of Samaritans| do not enter; 6 But be going, rather、 unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel.[64]

7 And |as ye go| proclaim, saying, The kingdom of the heavens hath drawn near![65]8 Be curing |the sick|、 raising |the dead|,— cleansing |lepers|, casting out |demons|:[66] ||Freely|| ye have |received| |freely| ||give||. 9 Ye may procure — neither gold、 nor silver、 nor copper、 for your belts, — 10 neither satchel for journey、 nor two´ tunics, nor sandals、 nor staff;[67] For |worthy| is the labourer, of his mainten- ance. 11 And <into whatsoever city or village ye enter> Search out who in it is |worthy|, And |there| abide, till ye go forth. 12 And <as ye enter the house> salute it; 13 And <if the house be worthy> Let your peace come upon it, But <if it be not worthy> Let your peace, unto you, return. 14 And <whosoevor shall neither welcome you nor hear your words> |As ye go forth、 outside that house or city| Shake off the dust of your feet: 15 |Verily| I say unto you, — |More tolerablel will it be, ||for the land of Sodom and Gomorrha in the day of judgment|| Than for |that| city![68]16 Lo! ||I|| send you forth, as sheep amidst wolves; Become ye therefore — Prudent, as serpents, and simple、[69] as doves.

17 But beware of men; — For they will deliver you up into high- councils, And |in their synagogues| will they scourge you, — 18 And I before both governors and kings| shall ye be brought |for my sake| — ||For a witness to them and the nations||. 19 And <when they deliver you up> Be not anxious, how or what ye shall speak, For it shall be given you, in that´ hour, what ye shall speak; 20 For it is not |ye| who are speaking. But |the Spirit of your Father| that is speaking in you. 21 And |brother| will deliver up |brother| unto death, And ||father|| ||child||, — And |children| will rise up |against parents|, ||And will put them to death||. 22 And ye will be hated by all, because of my name, — But ||he that endureth throughout|| |the same| shall be saved.[70]23 And <when they persecute you in this city> flee into another, — For |verily| I say unto you, |In nowise shall ye finish the cities of Israel| Till ||the Son of Man|| come. 24 A |disciple|[71] is not above |the teacher|, Nor |a servant| above |his lord|: 25 |Sufficient for the disciple| that he become |as his teacher|. And |the servant| as |his lord|. <If ||the master of the house|| |Beelzebul| they called> How much more、 the men of his house! 26 Then do not fear them, — For |nothing hath been covered|[72] which shall not be |uncovered|, And |hidden| which shall not be |made known|. 27 <What I am saying to you in the darkness> Tell ye in the light, — And <what |whispered| into the ear ye are hearing> Proclaim ye on the housetops. 28 And be not in fear, by reason of them that are killing the body, — And |the soul|[73] are not able to kill. But fear, rather, him who is able |both soul and body| to destroy in gehenna![74]29 Are not ||two' sparrows|| |for a farthing| sold? And |one from among them| shall not fall upon the ground, without your Father; 30 But <even the hairs of |your| head> have all been numbered. 31 Then be not in fear — |Than many' sparrows| better are ||ye||! 32 <Every one therefore who shall confess me before men> ||I also|| will confess |him| before my Father who is in the heavens; 33 But <whoever shall deny me before men> ||I also|| will deny[75] |him| before my Father who is in the heavens. 34 Do not think, that I came to thrust peace upon the earth, — I came not to thrust |peace| but |a sword|[76]; 35 For I came to set at variance — |A man| against his father, And |a daughter| against her mother|. And |a bride| against |her mother-in-law|; 36 And |a man's foes| are ||they of his own house||[77]37 <He that loveth father or mother above me> Is not |worthy| of me, — And <he that loveth son or daughter above me> Is not |worthy| of me; 38 And <he that doth not take his cross[78] and follow after me> Is not |worthy| of me. 39 |He that hath found his life|[79] shall lose it,— And <he that hath lost his life |for my sake|> shall find it. 40 <He that giveth welcome unto you> |Unto me| giveth welcome.

And <he that |unto me| giveth welcome> Giveth welcome — ||unto him that sent me forth||.[80] <He that giveth welcome unto a prophet, in the name of a prophet> |The reward of a prophet| shall receive; And <he that giveth welcome unto a righteous man, in the name of a righteous man> |The reward of a righteous man| shall receive; — And <whosoever shall give to drink — unto one of these little ones — |a cup of cold water only|, ||in the name of a disciple||>[81] |Yerily| I say unto you, |In nowise| shall lose his reward!

§ 22. John in prison sends Questions to Jesus. Lu. vii. 18-35.

1 And it came to pass <when Jesus had finished giving instructions to his twelve' disciples> he passed on from thence, to be teaching and proclaiming in their cities. 2 Now ||John|| <hearing in the prison the works of the Christ> |sending through his disciples| 3 said unto him. Art ||thou|| the coming one? Or ||a different[82] one|| are we to expect? 4 And |answering| Jesus said unto them — Go report unto John, what ye do hear and see: — 5 The |blind| recover sight、 And |the lame| walk, |Lepers| are cleansed. And |the deaf| hear, —[83] And |the dead| are raised. And |the destitute| are told the joyful tidings[84] ; 6 And |happy| is he、 whosoever shall not find cause of stumbling ||in me||. 7 But <as these were going their way> Jesus began to say unto the multitudes、 concerning John, — What went ye forth into the wilderness to gaze at? A reed、 by a wind、 shaken? 8 But what went ye forth to see? A man、 in soft clothing、 arrayed? Lo! |they who soft clothing do wear| are in the houses of kings. 9 But why went ye forth? |A prophet| to see? Yea、 I say unto you. And much more than a prophet. 10 |This| is he、 concerning whom it is written, — Lo! |I| send my messenger before thy face. Who shall make ready thy way before thee.[85]11 |Verily| I say unto you — There hath not arisen |among such as are born of women| ||a greater than John the Immerser||, — Page:The Emphasised Bible - Vol 4.djvu/19 Page:The Emphasised Bible - Vol 4.djvu/20 Page:The Emphasised Bible - Vol 4.djvu/21 27But who from among you^ being anxious^ can add to his stature one cubit ? 28And |about clothing| why are ye anxious? Consider well the lilies of the field, how they grow, — They toil not neither do they spin; 29And yet, I say unto you, ||Not even Solomon, in all his glory|| was arrayed like |one of these|! 30Now <if the grass of the field— which |to-day| is, and ||to-morrow|| |into an oven| is cast — God thus adorneth> Not much rather |you| little of faith? 31Do not then be anxious, saying, What shall we eat? or What shall we drink? or Wherewithal shall we be arrayed? 32For ||all these things|| |the nations| seek after, — For your heavenly Father |knoweth] that ye are needing |all' these things]. 33But be seeking first, the kingdom and its righteousness, — And |all these things| shall be added unto you. 34Do not, then, be anxious for the morrow ; |For the morrow| will be anxious |for itself|: |Sufficient for the day| is the evil thereof. 1Judge not, that ye be not judged; — 2For <with what judgment ye judge> shall ye be judged, — And <with what measure ye mete> shall it be measured unto you. 3Why, moreover, beholdest thou the mote, in the eye of thy brother, — While |the beam' in thine own' eye| thou dost not consider? 4Or how wilt thou say unto thy brother. Let me cast the mote out of thine eye, — When lo! ||a beam|| is in thine own' eye? 5Hypocrite! cast first |out of thine own eye| ||the beam||, — And |then| shalt thou see clearly to cast the mote, out of the eye of thy brother. 6Do not give what is holy unto dogs. Neither cast ye your pearls before swine, — Lest once they trample |them| down with their feat. And, turning, tear ||you||. 7Be asking, and it shall be given you, Be seeking, and ye shall find, — Be knocking, and it shall be opened unto you. 8For |whosoever asketh| receiveth. And |he that seeketh| findeth, — And |to him that knocketh| shall it be opened. 9Or what man |from among yourselves|, Whom his son shall ask for a loaf, — |A stone| will give him? 10Or |a fish also| shall ask, — |A serpent| will give him? 11<If then ||ye|| being |evil| know how |good gifts| to be giving unto your children> ||How much more|| will |your Father who is in the heavens| give good things to them that ask |him|? 12<Whatsoever things, therefore, ye would, that men be doing unto you> ||So|| be ||ye also|| doing |unto them|, — For |this| is the law and the prophets. 13Enter[86] ye in at |the narrow' gate|; Because broad and roomy is the way[87] that leadeth unto destruction, — And |many| are they who enter thereby : 14Because |narrow| is the gate, and |confined| the way, that leadeth unto life, — And |few| are they who find |it|. 15Beware of false prophets, Who come unto you in clothing of sheep, — While |within| they are ravening wolves. 16|By their fruits|[88] shall ye find |them| out, — Unless perhaps men gather — <From thorns> grapes! Or <from thistles> figs! 17So ||every good tree|| |fine fruit| produceth, — Whereas ||the worthless' tree|| |evil fruit| produceth : 18It is |impossible| for a ||goodtree|| to be bearing |evil fruit|. Neither doth ||a worthless tree|| produce |fine fruit|. 19||Every' tree that beareth not fine fruit||[89] Is hewn down, and |into fire| is cast. 20After all then |by their fruits| shall ye find |them| out. 21||Not every one that saith unto me. Lord I Lord!|| shall enter into the kingdom of the heavens, — But he that doeth the will of my Father who is in the heavens. 22|Many| will say unto me, in |that| day, Lord! Lord![90] did we not in thy name prophesy,[91] And |in thy name| cast |demons| out, — And |in thy name| ||many works of power|| perform? 23And |then| will I confess unto them, |Never| have I acknowledged[92] you, — Depart from me^ ye workers of lawlessness![93]24<Every one, therefore, who heareth [these] my words, and doeth them>[94] Shall be likened to a prudent man, who built his house upon the rock; 25And the rain descended, and the streams came, and the winds blew, and rushed against that house, and it fell not; For it had been founded upon the rock. 26<And every one who heareth these my words, and doeth them not> Shall be likened unto a foolish man, who built his house upon the sand; 27And the rain descended, and the streams came, and the winds blew, and dashed 52 And |he| said unto them — ||Wherefore|| (every' scribe, discipled unto the kingdom of the heavens] is like unto a householder^ who putteth forth out of his treasure, things new and old.

§ 42. Offence at the Carpenter's Son. Mk. vii. 2-6 : cp. Jn. vi. 42.

53 And it came to pass <when Jesus had finished these parables> he removed from thence ; 54 and <coming into his own city> began teaching them in their synagogue, so that with astonishment were they being struck, and were saying — ||Whence|| hath |this one| this wisdom, and the mighty works ? 55 Is not |this one| the carpenter's ||son||? Is not |his mother| called Mary, and are not his brethren — James and Joseph, and Simon, and Judas ? as and ||his sisters|| are they not all with us? ||Whence|| then hath |this one| all these things ? 57 And they began to find cause of stumbling in him.» But |Jesus| said unto them — A prophet *> is not without honour, save in his <= city, and in his house. 58 And he did not, there, many mighty works, because of their unbelief. § 43. John the Immerser Beheaded. Mk. vi. 14-29 ; Lu. ix. 7-9. 1 |In that' season| heard Herod the tetrarch, the fame of Jesus: ^and he said unto his servants — ' |This] is John the Immerser, — ]He) hath arisen from the dead, |For this cause] are the powers working mightily within him. 'For |Herod] seizing John, had bound him, and |in prison]'* put him away, — because of Hero- dias, the wife of Philip his brother; *for John had been saying to him. It is not allowed thee, to have her. 6 And desiring ]to kill] him, he feared the mul- titude, because ]as a prophet] they held him.«  6 But <a birthday feast of Herod taking place> the daughter of Herodias danced in the midst, and pleased Herod; 'wherefore ]with an oath] he promised to give her, whatsoever she should ask for herself; *'and ]she] being led on by her mother, — Give me (saith stie) here, dpon a charger, the head of John the Immerser. • And the king ] though grieved] yet <because of the oaths and theguests> ordered it to be given ;

  • and sent and beheaded John in the prison.

11 And his head was brought upon a charger, and given unto the maiden, and she brought it to her mother. 12 And his dis- ciples ]going near] bare away the corpse, and buried him, and came and brought tidings unto Jesus. • Ch:ip. xi.

"And ]comiug forth] he saw a great multitude, — and was moved with compassion "■ over th*'m, and 3ured their sick. 15 And ]evening] arriving, the disciples came unto him, saying — The place is ]a desert], and ]the hour] hath already -assed, — dismiss the multitudes, that they may go away into the villages, an< buy themselves food. 16 But jJesus] said unto them, ]No need] have they to go away, — give ]ye) them to eat. IT But ]they] say unto him — We have nothing here, save five' loaves and two' fishes. 18 But ]he] said— Bring ]them] tome, here. 19 And <giving orders that the multitudes should recline upon the grass, — taking the five' loaves and the two' fishes, — lookiiig up into the heaven> he blessed ; and, breaking, gave ]the disciples] the loaves, and the disciples unto the multitude. 20 And they did all eat, and were filled, — and they took up the remainder of the broken pieces, twelve' baskets ]full]. ^1 And ]they who did eat] were about five thousand |men|, besides women and children. § 45. Jestut walks upon the Lake. Mk. vi. 45-56 ; Jn. vi. 16-21. 22 And [straightway] constrained he the disciples to enter into a « boat, and be going before him unto the other side, while he dismissed the mul- titudes. 23 And, dismissing the multitudes, he went up into the ^ mountain, apart, to pray, — and when ]evening] came, ]alone] was he ]there]. ^-t Now ]!the boat]] ]still many furlongs from the land] was holding off,'- being distressed by the waves, — for Ithe wind] was ]contrary]. 25 And ]in the fourth' watch of the night] he came unto them, walking upon the sea. 26 And ]the disciples] seeing him ||upon the lake walk- ing]] were troubled, — saying — It is ]a ghostj ;<■ and ]by reason of their fear] they cried ojit. 27 And ]straightwayl Jesus « spake unto them, saying — Take courage ! it is ill, — ^e not afraid. 28 And ] making answer] Peter said unto him, — Lord ! if it is llthou]] bid me !ome unto thee, upon the waters. 29 And ]hej said- Come !

Mk. xii. 28-31 ; Lu. x. 25-27. 34 Now |the Pharisees| <hearing that he had silenced the Sadducees> were brought together with one accord; 35 and one from among them, a lawyer |proposed a question| putting him to the test : 36 Teacher! |which commandment| is greatest in the law? 37 And |he| said unto him — Thou shall love the Lord thy God — with all' thy heart and with all' thy soul, and with all' thy mind : *>- 38 |This| is the great and first commandment. 39 ||The second like it|| is |this| ; Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.'^ 40 ||In these two' commandments|| |all'the law| is contained, |and the prophets). § 74.

They say unto him — David's. 43 He saith unto them — How then doth |David, in spirit| call him |Lord|, saying — 44 The Lord hath said unto my Lord, — Sit thou on my right hand. Until I make thy foes thy footstool ?^ 45 <If then |David| calleth him |Lord|> |How| is he |his son|? 46 And |no one| was able to answer him a word, neither durst anyone ||from that' day|| question him |any more|. § 75. Alas for the Scribes and Pharisees. 23 |Then, Jesus spake unto the multitudes and unto his disciples, 2 saying — |Upon Moses' seat| have sat down, the Scribes and the Pharisees : 3 <|A11 things| therefore, whatsoever they tell you> do and observe, — But |according to their works| do ye not, For they |say|, and do not |perform|. 4 But they bind together heavy burdens,^ And lay upon men's shoulders,

Whereas ||they|| |with their finger| are not willing to move them.^ 5 But |all their works| they do, |to be gazed at by men|, — For they make broad their amulets. And make large their fringes, 6 And dearly love the first couch in the chief meals. And the first seats in the synagogues, 7 And the salutations in the market-places. And to be called by men, Rabbi. 8 But |ye|— do not be called Rabbi, — For |one| is your Teacher, And |all' ye| are brethren ; 9 And |father| be none of you called |upon the earth|. For |one| is your Father |the Heavenly| ; 10 Neither be called leaders, For |your leader| is one |the Christ|; 11 And |the greatest of you| shall be to you |a minister|; 12 And ||whoever shall exalt himself|| shall be |abased|. And |whoever shall abase himself| shall be ||exalted||»' [13]" 14 But alas for you. Scribes and Pharisees, ||hypocrites|| ; Because ye are locking up the kingdom of the heavens before men,^ For |ye| are not entering, Neither |them who are entering| suffer ye to enter. 15 Alas for you. Scribes and Pharisees, ||hypo- crites|| : Because ye compass sea and dry land, to make one' convert, — And |when it is done| ye make him a son of gehenna ||twofold more than ye||. 16 Alas for you, blind guides ! that say — <Whosoever shall swear by the Temple> it is |nothing|. But <whosoever shall swear by the gold of the Temple> is bound : 17 Foolish and blind ! for which is |greater|, The gold, or the Temple that hath hal- lowed the gold ? 18 And <whosoever shall swear by the altar> it is |nothing|, But < whosoever shall swear by the gift that is upon it> is bound : 19 Blind ! '^ for which is greater The gift, or the altar that halloweth the gift? ~ 20 <He therefore that hath sworn by the altar> Sweareth by it, and by all that is upon it; 21 And <he that hath sworn by the Temple> Sweareth by it, and by him who dwelleth «  therein ; 22 And <he that hath sworn by heaven> Sweareth by the throne of God, and by him who sitteth thereupon.
