3. And, befold, there appeared unto them Moses and Elias talking with him. ,

23. ," : 1,. ; 4. Then answered Peter, and said unto Jesus, Lord, it is good for us to be here : if thou wilt, let us inake bere three tabernacles : one for thee, and one for Moses, and one for Elias.

5 While he yet spake, behold, a briglit cloud over-shadowed them and behold a voice out of the cloud, which said, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased, hear ye him..

*?" - 6 And when the disciples heard it they fell on their face, and were sore afraid. · And Jesus came and touched them, and said, Arise, and be not afraid. And when they had lifted up their eyes, they saw no man, save Jesus only.

8 And as they came down from the mountain, Jesus charged them, saying, Tell the vision to no man, until the Son of Man be risen again from the dead. pasira

10 And his disciples asked him, saying, Why then say the scribes that Elias must first conie? And Jesus answered and said unto them; Elias truly shall first come, and restore all things.

12 But I say unto you, That Elias is come already, and they knew him not, but have done unto him whatsoever they Tisted. Likewise shall also the Son of Man' suffer of them. Then the disciples understood that he spake unto them of John the Baptist.

14 And when they were come to the multitude, there came to bim a certain man kneeling down to him, and saying, ".

15 Lord, have mercy on niy son, for he is a lunatick, and sore vexed : for oft times he falleth into the fire, and oft into the water. Aud I brought him to thy disciples, and they could not cure hin."

17 Then Jesus answered and said, O faithless and perverse generation, how long shall I be with you? bow long shall I suffer you ? bring him bither to me. .. . ,

18 And Jesus rebuked the devil; and he departed out of him: and the child was cured from that very hour. Then came the disciples to Jesus apart, and said, Why could not we cast him ont? - 20 And Jesus said nnto them, Because of your anbelief : for Yerily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place, and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible

unto you. Howbeit this kind goeth not out but by prayer and fasting.

22 And wbile they abode in Galilee, Jesus said unto them, 'The Son of Mau shall be betrayed into the hands of men:

23 And they shall kill him, and the third day he shall be raised again. And they were exceeding sorry.

24 And when they were come to Capernaum, they that received tribute money came to Peter, and said, Doth not your master pay tribute ?

25 He saith, Yes. And when he was come into the house, Jesus prevented him, saying, What thinkest thou, Simon ? of whom do the kings of the earth take custom or tribute ? of their own children, or of strangers ? Peter saith unto him, Of strangers. Jesus saith unto him, Then are the children free.

27 Notwithstanding, lest we should offend them, go thou to the sea, and cast an hook, and take up the fish that first cometh up; and when thou hast opened his mouth, thou shalt find a piece of money: that take, and give unto them for me and thee.

LESSON XL.:

Matthew, Chap, 18. Mark, Chap. 9. Ar the same time.came the disciples unto Jesus, saying, Wlu. is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven?

5 And Jesus called a little child unto him, and set him in the midst of them, and said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter · into the kingdom of heaven.

4 Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven. And whoso shall receive one such little child in my name receivelb' ine.

6 But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea.

7 Woe unto the world because of offences ! for it must needs be that offences come; but woe to that man by whom the offence cometh!

8 Wherefore if thy hand or thy foot offend thee, cut them off, and cast them from thee: it is better for thee to enter into life halt or maimed, rather than having two hands or two feet to be cast into everlasting fire : B etween the

46 Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched. . 9 And if thine eye offend thee, pluck it out, and cast it from thee: it is better for thee to enter into life with one eye, rather than having two eyes to be cast into hell fire :

48 Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.

10 Take heed that ye despise not one of these little ones; for I say, unto you, That in heaven their angels do always behold the face of my Father which is in heaven.

21 Then came Peter unto him, and said, Lord, how oft shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him ? till seven times ?

22 Jesus saith unto him, I say not unto thee, Until seven tiines; but until seventy times seven.

23 Therefore is the kingdom of leaven likened unto a certain king, wbich would take account of his servants.

24 And when he had begun to reckon, one was brought unto him, which owed him ten thousand talents.

25 But forasmuch as he had not to pay, his lord commanded him to be sold, and his wife, and children, and all that he had, and payment to be made.

26 The servant therefore fell down, and worshipped him, saying, Lord, have patience with me, and I will pay thee all.

27 Then the lord of that servant was moved with compassion, and loosed him, and forgave him the debt.

28 But the same servant went out, and found one of his fellow servants which owed him an hundred pence; and he laid hands on him, and took him by the throat, saying, Pay. me that thou owest. .. 29 And his fellow servant fell down at his feet, and besought him, saying, Have patience with me and I will pay thee all. And he would not : but went and cast him into prison, till he should pay the debt.

31 So when his fellow-servants saw what was done, they were very sorry, and came and told unto their lord all that was done.

32 Then his lord, after that he had called him, said unto him, O thou wicked servant, I forgave thee all that debt because thou desiredst me: Shouldest not thou also have had compassion on thy fellow-servant, even as I had pity on thee?

And his lord was wroth, and delivered him to the tormentors, · till he should pay all that was due unto him.

35 So likewise shall my heavenly Father do also unto you, if ye from your hearts forgive not every one his brother their trespasses.

LESSON XLI. 'Matthew, Chap. 20.

on

?'. Then said Jesus, The kingdom of heaven is like unto a man that is an housholder, which went out early in the morning to lire labourers into his vineyard. And, when he had agreed with the.labourers for a peony a day, he sent them into his vineyard.

.

.. .. .. .! 3 And he went out about the third hour, and saw others standing idle in the market-place. And said unto them, Go ye also into the vineyard, and wbatsoever is right I will give you. And they went their way.

5 Again he went out about the sixth and ninth hour, and did likewise. And about the eleventh hour he went out, and found others standing idle, and saith unto them, why stand ye here all the day idle ?

7 They say unto him, Because no man hath hired us. He saith unto them, Go ye also into the vineyard; and whatsoever is right that shall ye receive.

8 So when even was come, the Lord of the vineyard saith unto his steward, Call the labourers, and give them their hire, beginning from the last unto the first.

9 And when they came that were hired about the eleventh hour, they received every man a penny. But when the first came, they supposed that they should have received more ; and they likewise received every man a penny.

11 And when they had received it, they murmured against the good man of the house, saying, These last have wrought but one hour, and thou hast made them equal unto us which have borne the burden and heat of the day.

13 But he answered one of them, and said, Friend, I do thee no wrong: didst not thou agree with nje for a penny?

14 Take that thine is, and go thy way: I will give unto this last even as unto thee. Is it not lawful for me to do what 1. will with mine own? Is tbine eye evil, because I am good?

16 So the last shall be first, and the first last: for many be called, but few chosen.

17 And Jesus going up to Jerusalem took the twelve disciples apart in the way, and said unto them, Behold we go up to Jerusalem; and the Son of Man shall be betrayed unto the chief priests and unto the scribes, and they shall condemn him to death,

19 And shall deliver him to the Gentiles to mock, and to

scourge, and to crucify him: and the third day he shall rise again.

20 Then came to him the mother of Zebedee's children with her sons, worshipping him, and desiring a certain thing of him.

21 And he said unto her, What wilt thou ? She saith unto hini, Grant that these my two sons may sit, the one on thy right hand, and the other on the left, in thy kingdom.

22 But Jesus answered and said, Ye know not what ye ask. Are ye able to drink of the cup that I shall drink of, and to be baptized with the baptism that I am baptized with ? They say unto him, We are able..

23 And he saith unto them, Ye shall drink indeed of my cup, and be baptized with the baptism that I am baptized with: but to sit on my right hand, and on my left, is not mine to give, but it shall be given to them for whom it is. prepared of my Father.

24 And when the ten heard it, they were moved with indignation against the two brethren.

25 But Jesus called them unto him, and said, Ye know that the princes of the Gentiles exercise dominion over them, and they that are great exercise authority upon them.

26 But it shall not be so among you: but whosoever will be great among you, let him be your minister; and whosoever will be chief among you, let him be your servant :

28 Even as the Son of Man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give his life a ransom for many. :

2 Now the Jews feast of tabernacles was at hand. His brethren therefore said unto him, Depart hence, and go into Judea, that thy disciples also may see the works that thou doest.
