but I know him, and keep his saying. Your father Abraham rejoiced to see my day: and he saw it, and was glad.

57 Then said the Jews unto him, Thou art not yet fifty years old, and last thou seen Abraham ? Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abrabam was, I am.

59 Then took they up stones to cast at him : but Jesus bid himself, and went out of the temple, going through the midst of them, and so passed by, , ,

LES SON XLV..

Luke, Chap. 10, 25 And, behold, a certain lawyer stood up, and tempted him, saying, Master, what shall I do to inherit eternal life?

26 He said unto hiin, What is written in the law ? how readest thou?

27 And he answering said, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy strength, and with all thy niind; and thy neighbour as thyself.

28 And he said unto him, Thou hast answered right : this do and thou shalt live. But he willing to justify himself, said unto Jesus, And who is my neighbour?

30 Aud Jesus answering said, A certain inan went down from Jerusalem to Jericho, and fell among thieves, which stripped him of his raiment, and wounded him, and departed, leaving him half dead.

31 And by chance there came down a certain priest that way: and when he saw him, he passed by on the other side.

32 And likewise a Levite, wben he was at the place, came and looked on him, and passed by on the other side.

33 But a certain Samaritan, as he journeyed, came where he was : and when he saw him, he had compassion on him,

34 And went to him, and bound up his wounds, pouring in oil and wine, and set him on his own beast, and brought him to an inn, and took care of him.

35 And on the morrow when he departed, he took out two pence, and gave them to the host, and said unto him, Take care of him; and whatsoever thou spendest more, when I ,come again, I will repay thee.

36 Which now of these three, thinkest thou, was neighbour unto him that fell among the thieves ? And he said, He that shewed mercy on him. Then said Jesus unto him, Go, and do thou likewise.

38 Now it came to pass, as they went, that he entered into a certain village: and a certain woman named Martha received him into her house. And she had a sister called Mary,which al so sat at Jesus' feet, and heard his word...

40 But Martha was cumbered about much serving, and came to him, and said, Lord, dost thou not care that my sister hath left me to serve alone? bid her therefore that she help me.

41 And Jesus answered and said unto her, Martha, Martha, thou art careful and troubled about many things : But one thing is needful: and Mary hath chosen that good part, which shall not be taken away from her.

LESSON XLVI. .

Luke, Chap. 12. 13 And one of the company said unto him, Master, speak to my brother, that he divide the inheritance with me.

14 And he said unto him, Man, who made me a judge or a livider over you? And he said unto them, Take heed, and beware of covetousness : for a man's life consisteth not in the abundance of the things which he possesseth.

16 And he spake a parable unto them, saying, The ground of a certain rich man brought forth plentifully:

17 And he thought within himself, saying, What shall I do, because I have no room where to bestow my fruits?

18 And he said, This will I do; I will pull down my barns, and build greater; and there will I bestow all my fruits and my goods.

19 And I will say to my soul, Soul, thou hast much goods laid up for many years; take thine ease, eat, drink, and be merry. But God said unto him, Thou fool, this night thy soul shall be 'required of thee: then whose shall those things be, which thou hast provided?

32 - Fear not, little flock: for it is your Father's good pleasure to give you the kingdom.

33 Sell that ye have, and give alms; provide yourselves bags which wax not old, a treasure in the heavens that faileth not ; where no thief approacheth, 'neither nioth corrupteth."

34 For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also. 35 Let your loins be girded about, and your lights burning. 36 And ye yourselyes like unto men that wait for their lord;

when he will return from the wedding; that when he cometh and knocketh, they may open unto him immediately.

37 Blessed are those servants, whom the lord when he cometh shall find watching; verily I say unto you, that he shall gird himself, and make them to sit down to meat, and will come forth and serve them."

38 And if he shall come in the second watch, or come in the third watch, and find them so, blessed are those servants.

39 And this know, that if the good nan of the house had known what hour the thief would come, he would have watched and not have suffered his house to be broken throngh.. 4 40 Be ye therefore ready also: for the Son of Man cometh at an hour when ye think not.

41 Then Peter -said unto him, Lord, speakest thou this parable unto us, or even to all ?

42 And the Lord said, Who then is that faithful and wise steward, whom his lord shall make ruler over his household, to give them their portion of meat in due season ?

43 Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he cometh shall find so doing. Of a truth I say unto you, that he will make him ruler over all that he hath.

45 But and if that servant say in his heart, My lord delayeth his coming: and shall begin to beat the nien servants and maidens, and to eat and drink, and to be drunken:

46 "The lord of that servant will come in a day when he looketh not for him, and at an hour when he is not aware, and will cut him in sunder, and will appoint him his portion with unbelievers.

47 And that servant, which knew his lord's will, and prepared not himself, neither did according to his will, shall be beaten with many stripes.

48 But he that knew not, and did commit things worthy of stripes, shall be beaten with few stripes. For unto whomsoerer much is given, of him shall be much required; and to whoin men have committed much, of them they will ask the more.

LES SON XLVII.

Luke, Chap. 13. THERE were present at that season some that told him of the Galileans whose blood Pilate had mingled with their sacrifices.

2 And Jesus answering, said unto them, Suppose ye that these Galileans were sinners above all the Galileans, because

they suffered such things ? I tell you, Nay: 'but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish.

4 Or those eighteen upon whom the tower in Siloani fell, and slew them, think ye that they were sipuers above all men that dwelt in Jerusalen? I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish.

6 He spake also this parable: A certain màn had a fig tree planted in his vineyard; and he came and sought fruit thereon, and found none, se

7 Then said he unto the dresser of his vineyard, Behold, these three years I come seeking fruit on this fig tree, and find none: cut it down ; why cumbereth it the ground ?

8 And he answering, said unto him, Lord, let it alone this year also, till I shall dig about it, and dung it. And if it bear fruit, well; and if not, then after that thou shalt cut it down.

10 And he was teaching in one of the synagogues on the sabbath: and, behold, there was a woman which had a spirit of infirmity eighteen years, and was bowed together, and could in no wise lift up herself.

12 And when Jesus saw her, he called her to him, and said unto her, Woman, thou art loosed from thine infirmity.

13 And he laid his hands on her; and immediately she was made straight, and glorified God.

14 And the ruler of the synagogue answered with indignation, because that Jesus haci healed on the sabbath day, and said unto the people, There are six days in which men ought to work : in them therefore come and be healed, and not op the sabbath day.

15 The Lord then answered him, and said, Thou hypocrite, doth not each one of you on the sabbath loose his ox or his ass from the stall, and lead him away to watering?

16 And ought not this woman, being a daughter of Abraham, whom Satan hath bound, lo, these eighteen years, to be loosed from this bond on the sabbath day?

17 And when he had said these things, all his adversaries were ashamed: and all the people rejoiced for all the glorious things that were done by him. And he went through the cities and villages teaching, and journeying toward Jerusalem.

23 Then said one unto him, Lord, are there few that bo saved ? And he said unto them, Strive to enter in at the stran gate: for many, I say unto you, will seek to enter in, que shall not be able.

25 When once the Master of the house is risen up, and back shut to the door, and ye begin to stand without, and to s

, and to knock

at the door, saying, Lord, Lord, open unto us : and he shall auswer and say unto you, I kpow you not whence ye are ::

26 Then shall ye begin to say, We have caten and drunk in thy presence, and thou hast taught in our streets.

27 But he shall say, I tell you, I know you not whence ye are: depart from me, all ye workers' of iniquity.

28 There shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth, when ye skall see Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, and all the prophets, in the kingdom of God, and you yourselves thrust out.

29 And they shall come from the east, and from the west, and from the north, and from the south, and shall sit down in the kingdom of God. And, behold, there are last which shall be first, and there are first which shall be last.

31 The same day there cane certain of the Pharisees, saying unto him, Get thee out, and depart hence, for Herod will kill thee.

32 And he said unto them, Go ye and tell that fox, Behold, I cast out devils, and I do cures to-day, and to-morrow, and the third day I shall be perfected. Nevertheless I must walk to-day and to-morrow, and the day following; for it cannot be that a prophet perish out of Jerusalem.

LESSON XLVIII.

Luke, Chap. 14. 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 watched him.

2 And behold, there was a certain man before him which had the dropsy. And Jesus answering, spake unto the lawyers and Pharisees, saying, Is it lawful to heal on the sabbath-day?

4. And they held their peace. And he took him, and healed him, and let him go: and answered them, saying; 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 parable to those which were bidden, when he marked how they chose out the chief rooms; saying 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; 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 room.
