them away, he departed into a mountain to pray. And when even was 47 come, the ship was in the midst of the sea, and he alone on the land. And he saw them toiling in rowing ; for the wind was contrary unto them : 48 and about the fourth watch of the night he cometh unto them, walking upon the sea, and would have passed by them. But when they saw him 49 walking upon the sea, they supposed it had been a spirit, and cried out.

(For they all saw him, and were troubled.) And immediately he talked 50 with them, and saith unto them, Be of good cheer : it is I; be not afraid. And he went up unto them into the ship; and the wind ceased : and they 51 were sore amazed in themselves beyond measure, and wondered. For 52 they considered not the miracle of the loaves; for their heart was hardened,

AND when they had passed over, they came into the 53

land of Gennesaret, and drew to the shore. And when 54 they were come out of the ship, straightway they knew him, ' and ran 55 through that whole region round about, and began to carry about in beds those that were sick, where they heard he was. And whithersoever he en-'56 tered, into villages, or cities, or country, they laid the sick in the streets, and besought him that they might touch, if it were but the border of his garment: and as many as touched him, were made whole.

THEN came together unto him the Pharisees, and cer- 7

tain of the scribes which came from Jerusalem. And 2 traditions. Matt. when they saw some of his disciples eat bread with defiled,

(that is to say, with unwashen) hands, they found fault. For the Pharisees, and all the Jews, except they wash their hands oft, eat 3 not, holding the tradition of the elders. And when they come from the 4 market, except they wash, they eat not. And many other things there be, which they have received to hold, as the washing of cups, and pots, and brazen vessels, and tables. Then the Pharisees and scribes asked him, 5 Why walk not thy disciples according to the tradition of the elders, but eat bread with unwashen hands? He answered and said unto them, Well 6 hath Esaias prophesied of you hypocrites, as it is written, “ This people honoreth me with their lips, but their heart is far from me. Howbeit, in 7 vain do they worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.". For, laying aside the commandment of God, ye hold the tradition 8 of men, as the washing of pots and cups : and many other such like things

And he said unto them, Full well ye reject the commandment of 9 God, that ye may keep your own tradition. For Moses said, “ Honor 10 thy father and thy mother ;' and, “ Whoso curseth father or mother, let him die the death :” but ye say, If a man shall say to his father or mother, 11 It is Corban, (that is to say, a gift,) by whatsoever thou mightest be profited by me; he shall be free. And ye suffer him no more to do aught 12 for his father or his mother; making the word of God of none effect 13 through your tradition, which ye have delivered : and many such like things do ye. And when he had called all the people unto him, he 14, said unto them, Hearken unto me every one of you, and understand. There is nothing from without a man, that entering into him, can defile 15 him: but the things which come out of him, those are they that defile the

'If any man have ears to hear, let him hear! ! And when he 17 was entered into the house from the people, his disciples asked him concerning the parable. And he saith unto them, Are ye so without under. 18 standing also ? Do ye not perceive, that whatsoever thing from without entereth into the man, it cannot defile him ; because it entereth not into 19 his heart, but into the belly, and goeth out into the draught purging all meats ? And he said, That which cometh out of the man, that defileth 20 the man. For from within, out of the heart of men, proceed evil thoughts, 21

ye do.

whose young daughter had an unclean spirit, heard of him, and came and fell at his feet: (the woman was a Greek, a Syrophenician 26 by nation,) and she besought him that he would cast forth the devil out of her daughter. But Jesus said unto her, Let the children first be filled : 27 for it is not meet to take the children's bread, and to cast it unto the dogs. And she answered and said unto him, Yes, Lord : yet the dogs under the 28 table eat of the children's crumbs. And he said unto her, For this 29 saying, go thy way; the devil is gone out of thy daughter. And when 30 she was come to her house, she found the devil gone out, and her daugh

of the coasts of Decapolis. And they bring unto him one 32 that was deaf, and had an impediment in his speech; and they beseech him to put his hand upon him. And he took him aside from the multi- 33 tude, and put his fingers into his ears, and he spit, and touched his tongue : ' and looking up to heaven, he sighed, and saith unto him, Ephphatha ! 34 (that is, Be opened.) And straightway his ears were opened, and the 35 string of his tongue was loosed, and he spake plain. And he charged 36 them that they should tell no man: but the more he charged them, so much the more a great deal they published it; and were beyond measure 37 astonished, saying, He hath done all things well! he maketh both the deaf to hear, and the dumb to speak !

IN those days the multitude being very great, and hav- 8 fed by miracle : ing nothing to eat, Jesus called his disciples unto him, and

saith unto them, 'I have compassion on the multitude, be- 2 cause they have now been with me three days, and have nothing to eat : ' and if I send them away fasting to their own houses, they will faint by 3 the way: 'for divers of them came from far. And his disciples answered 4 him, From whence can a man satisfy these men with bread here in the wilderness? And he asked them, How many loaves have ye? And they 5 said, Seven. And he commanded the people to sit down on the ground : 6 and he took the seven loaves, and gave thanks, and brake, and gave to his disciples to set before them; and they did set them before the people. And they had a few small fishes ; and he blessed, and commanded to set them also before them. So they did eat, and were filled : and they took 8 up of the broken meat that was left, seven baskets. And they that had 9 eaten were about four thousand : and he sent them away. And straight- 10 way he entered into a ship with his disciples, and came into the parts of Dalmanutha.

reasoned among themselves, saying, It is because we have no bread. And when Jesus knew it, he saith unto them, Why reason ye, because ye 17 have no bread ? perceive ye not yet, neither understand ? have ye your heart yet hardened ? 'having eyes, see ye not ? and having ears, hear ye 18 not ? and do ye not remember? When I brake the five loaves among five 19 thousand, how many baskets full of fragments took ye up? They say unto him, Twelve. And when the seven among four thousand, how 20 many baskets full of fragments took ye up? And they said, Seven. And 21 he said unto them, How is it that ye do not understand ?

AND he cometh to Bethsaida ; and they bring a blind 22 blind man at Beth- man unto him, and besought him to touch him. And he 23

took the blind man by the hand, and led him out of the town; and when he had spit on his eyes, and put his hands upon him, he asked him if he saw aught. And he looked up, and said, I see men as 24 trees walking. After that, he put his hands again upon his eyes, and 25 made him look up: and he was restored, and saw every man clearly. And he sent him away to his house, saying, Neither go into the town, 26 nor tell it to any in the town. The Apostles con- AND Jesus went out, and his disciples, into the towns 27 fess Jesus to be the of Cesarea Philippi ; and by the way he asked his disciples,

13. Luke ix. 18. saying unto them, Who do men say that I am ? And they 28 answered, John the Baptist : but some say, Elias; and others, One of the prophets. ' And he saith unto them, But who say ye that I am ? And 29 Peter answereth, and saith unto him, Thou art the Christ. And he 30 charged them that they should tell no man of him.

And he began to teach them, that the Son of man must 31 necessity of his suffer many things, and be rejected of the elders, and of death and pointais the chief priests, and scribes, and be killed, and after three rue disciples. Matt

. days rise again. And he spake that saying openly. 32

And Peter took him, and began to rebuke him. But 33 when he had turned about, and looked on his disciples, he rebuked Peter, saying, Get thee behind me, Satan : for thou savorest not the things that be of God, but the things that be of 'men. And when he had called the 34, people unto him with his disciples also, he said unto them, Whosoever will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me.

For whosoever will save his life, shall lose it; but whosoever 35 shall lose his life for my sake and the gospel's, the same shall save it. (For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose 36 his own 'soul? Or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul ?) 37 Whosoever therefore shall be ashamed of me, and of my words, in this 38 adulterous and sinful generation, of him also shall the Son of man be ashamed, when he cometh in the glory of his father with the holy angels. And he said unto them, Verily, I say unto you, That there be some of 9 them that stand here, which shall not taste of death, till they have seen the kingdom of God come with power.

AND after six days, Jesus taketh with him Peter, and 2 Christ. Matt. xvii. 1. James, and John, and leadeth them up into a high moun

tain apart by themselves ; and he was transfigured before them. And his raiment became shining, exceeding white as snow; so 3 as no fuller on earth can white them. And there appeared unto them 4 Elias, with Moses ; and they were talking with Jesus. And Peter an- 5 swered and said to Jesus, Master, it is good for us to be here: and let us make three tabernacles; one for thee, and one for Moses, and one for Elias. For he wist not what to say: for they were sore afraid. And 6,7 there was a cloud that overshadowed them : and a voice came out of the cloud, saying, “This is my beloved Son : hear him.' And suddenly, 8

when they had looked round about, they saw no man any more, save Jesus only, with themselves. And as they came down from the mountain, he 9 charged them that they should tell no man what things they had seen, till the Son of man were risen from the dead. And they kept that saying 10 with themselves, questioning one with another what the rising from the dead should mean. And they asked him, saying, Why say the scribes 11 that Elias must first come? And he answered and told them, Elias verily 12 cometh first, and restoreth all things; and how it is written of the Son of man, that he must suffer many things, and be set at nought. But I 13 say unto you, That Elias is indeed come, and they have done unto him whatsoever they listed, as it is written of him. The deaf and dumb AND when he came to his disciples, he saw a great 14 Mat. vii. 14. Luke multitude about them, and the scribes questioning with

them. And straightway all the people, when they beheld 15 him, were greatly amazed, and running to him, saluted him. And he 16 asked the scribes, What question ye with them? And one of the multi- 17 tude answered and said, Master, I have brought unto thee my son, which hath a dumb spirit; and wheresoever he taketh him, he eth him ; and 18 he foameth, and gnasheth with his teeth, and pineth away; and I spake to thy disciples that they should cast him out, and they could not. He an- 19 swereth him, and saith, O faithless generation, how long shall I be with you ? how long shall I suffer you ? Bring him unto me. 'And they brought 20 him unto him. And when he saw him, straightway the spirit tare him ; and he fell on the ground, and wallowed, foaming. And he asked his 21 father, how long is it ago since this came unto him ? And he said, Of a child; and oft-times it hath cast him into the fire, and into the waters, to 22 destroy him : but if thou canst do any thing, have compassion on us, and help us. Jesus said unto him, If thou canst believe, all things are pos- 23 sible to him that believeth. And straightway the father of the child cried 24 out, and said with tears, Lord, I believe ; help thou mine unbelief! When Jesus saw that the people came running together, he rebuked the 25 foul spirit, saying unto him, Thou dumb and deaf spirit, I charge thee, come out of him, and enter no more into him. And the spirit cried, and 26 rent him sore, and came out of him: and he was as one dead; insomuch that many said, He is dead. But Jesus took him by the hand, and lifted 27 him up; and he arose. And when he was come into the house, his dis- 28 ciples asked him privately, Why could not we cast him out ? And he. 29 said unto them, This kind can come forth by nothing, but by prayer and fasting. Christ again fore- And they departed thence, and passed through Galilee ; 30 tells his death and and he would not that any man should know it. For he 31 xvii. 22. Luke ix. 43. taught his disciples, and said unto them, The Son of man is delivered into the hands of men, and they shall kill him ; and after that he is killed, he shall rise the third day. But they understood not 32 that saying, and were afraid to ask him.

AND he came to Capernaum : and being in the house, 33 Matt. svill. 1. Luke he asked them, What was it that ye disputed among yourciples ,

selves by the way? But they held their peace: for by 34 the way they had disputed among themselves, who should be the greatest. And he sat down, and called the twelve, and saith unto them, If any 35 man desire to be first, the same shall be last of all, and servant of all. And he took a child, and set him in the midst of them: and when he had 36 taken him in his arms, he said unto them, Whosoever shall receive one 37 of such children in my name, receiveth me: and whosoever shall receive me, receiveth not me, but him that sent me.

loweth not us; and we forbade him, because he followeth not us. But 39 Jesus said, Forbid him not: for there is no man which shall do a miracle in my name, that can lightly speak evil of me. For he that is not against 40 us, is on our part. For whosoever shall give you a cup of water to 41 drink in my name, because ye belong to Christ, verily I say unto you, he shall not lose his reward. And whosoever shall offend one of these 42 little ones that believe in me, it is better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he were cast into the sea. And if thy hand 43 offend thee, cut it off: it is better for thee to enter into life maimed, than having two hands to go into hell, into the fire that never shall be quenched: ' where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched. ' And if thy 45 foot offend thee, cut it off: it is better for thee to enter halt into life, than having two feet to be cast into hell, into the fire that never shall be quenched: where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched. 46 And if thine eye offend thee, pluck it out: it is better for thee to enter 47 into the kingdom of God with one eye, than having two eyes, to be cast into hell-fire : where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched. 48 For every one shall be salted with fire, and every sacrifice shall be salted 49 with salt. Salt is good : but if the salt have lost his saltness, where- 50 with will ye season it? Have salt in yourselves, and have peace one with another.

AND he arose from thence, and cometh into the 10 cles. Matt. xix. 1. coasts of Judea, by the farther side of Jordan : and the

people resort unto him again ; and, as he was wont, he taught them again.

And the Pharisees came to him, and asked him, Is it 2 question concerning lawful for a man to put away his wife ? tempting him. vorce. Matt

. xix. 3. And he answered and said unto them, What did Moses 3 command you ? And they said, Moses suffered to write a bill of divorce- 4 ment, and to put her away. And Jesus answered and said unto them, 5 For the hardness of your hearts, he wrote you this precept, ' but from the 6 beginning of the creation, God made them male and female. “ For this 7 cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and cleave to his wife, ' and they twain shall be one flesh :” so then they are no more twain, 8 but one flesh. What, therefore, God hath joined together, let not man 9 put asunder.

And in the house his disciples asked him again of the 10 same matter. And he saith unto them, Whosoever shall put away his 11 wife, and marry another, committeth adultery against her. And if a 12 woman shall put away her husband, and be married to another, she committeth adultery.

And they brought young children to him, that he should 13 children. Matt. xix. touch them ; and his disciples rebuked those that brought 13. Luke xviii. 15. them. But when Jesus saw it, he was much displeased, 14 and said unto them, Suffer the little children to come unto me, and forbid them not : for of such is the kingdom of God. Verily I say unto you, 15 Whosoever shall not receive the kingdom of God as a little child, he shall not enter therein. And he took them up in his arms, put his hands upon 16 them, and blessed them.

AND when he was gone forth into the way, there came 17 of the young ruler, Chria cautions his one running, and kneeled to him, and asked him, Good

discipes against Master, what shall I do that I may inherit eternal life? 16. Luke xviii. 18. And Jesus said unto him, Why callest thou me good ? 18 there is no!e good but one, that is, God. Thou knowest the command- 19 ments, “ Do not commit adultery;"). “ Do not kill;" « Do not steal ;" “Do not bear false witness ;": " Defraud not ;»' Honor thy father
