15 So they cast him out of the I vineyard, and killed him. What I therefore shall the lord of the vineyard do unto them?

16 He shall come and destroy these husbandmen, and shall give the vineyard to others. And when they heard it, they said, God forbid.

17 And he beheld them, and said, What is this then that is written, eThe stone which the builders rejected, the same is become the head of the corner?

18 Whosoever shall fall upon that stone shall be broken; but 'on whomsoever it shall fall, it will grind him to powder.

19 f And the chief priests and the scribes the same hour sought to lay hands on him; and tfiey feared the people: for they perceived that he had spokeu this parable against them.

20 s And they watched Mm, and sent forth spies, which should feign themselves just men, that they might take hold of his words, that so they might deliver him unto the power and authority of the governor.

21 And they asked him, saving, 'Master, we know that thou sayest and teachest rightly, neither acceptest thou the persou qf any, but teachest the way of God I truly:

22 Is it lawful for us to give tribute unto Cesar, or no?

23 But he perceived their craftiness, and said unto them, Why tempt ye me?

24 Shew me a 1 penny. Whose image and superscription hath it? They answered and said, Cesar's.

25 And be said unto them, Render therefore unto Cesar the things which be Cesar's, and unto God the things which be God's.

20 And they could not take hold of his words before the people: and they marvelled at his answer, and held their peace.

27 1 'Then came to him certain of the Saddueees, k which deny that there is any resurrection; and they asked him,

28 Saying, Master,1 Moses wrote unto us, If any man's brother die, having a wife, and he die without children, that his brother should take his wife, and raise up seed unto his brother.

29 There were therefore seven brethren: and the first took a wife, and died without children.

30 And the second took her to wife, and he died childless.

31 And the third took her; and in like manner the seven also: and they left no children, and died.

32 Last of all the woman died also.

33 Therefore in the resurrection whose wife of them is she? for seven had her to wife.

34 And Jesus answering said unto them, The children of this world marry, and are given in marriage:

35 But they which shall be accounted worthy to obtain that world, and the resurrection from the dead, neither marry, nor are given in marriage:

30 Neither can they die any more: for "they are equal unto the angels; and are the children of God, "being the children of the resurrection.

37 Now that the dead are raised, "even Moses shewed at the bush, when he calleth the Lord the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob.

38 For he is not a God of the dead, but of the living: for Pall live unto him.

39 II Then certain of the scribes answering said, Master, thou hast well said.

40 And after that they durst not ask him any q-ueation at all.

41 And he said unto them, illow say they that Christ is David's son?

43 And David himself saith in the book of Psalms, rThe Lord said unto my Lord, Sit thou on my right hand,

43 Till I make thii^p enemies thy footstool.

44 David therefore calleth him Lord, how is he then his son?

45 If 'Then in the audience of all the people he said unto his disciples,

46 'Beware of the scribes, which desire to walk in long robes, and »love greetings in the markets, and the highest seats in the synagogues, and the chief rooms at feasts;

CHAPTER XXI.

1 Christ commendeth the poor widow. 5 He foretelleth the destruction of the temple, and of the city Jerusalem: 2o the signs also which shall be before the last day. 34 He exhorteth them to be watchful.

AND he looked up, "and saw the rich men easting their gifts into the treasury.

2 And he saw also a certain poor widow casting in thither two I mites.

3 And he said, Of a truth I say unto you, That this poor widow hath cast in more than they all:

4 For all these have of their abundance east in unto the offerings of God: but she of her penury hath cast in all the living that she had.

5 If "And as some spake of the temple, how it was adorned with goodly stones and gifts, he said,

6 As for these things which ye behold, the days will come, in the which d there shall not be left one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down.

7 And they asked him, saying, Master, but when shall these things be? and what sign will there be when these things shall come to pass?

8 And he said, «Take heed that ye be not deceived: for many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; land the time draweth near: go ye not therefore after them.

9 But when ye shall hear of wars and commotions, be not terrified: for these things must first come to pass; but the end is not by and by.

10 'Then said he unto them, Nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom:

11 And great earthquakes shall be in divers places, and famines, and pestilences; and fearful sights and great signs shall there be from heaven.

13 s But before all these, they shall lay their hands on you, and persecute you, delivering you up to the synagogues, and Mnto prisons, being brought before kings and rulers k for "my name's sake.

13 And 1 it shall turn to you for a testimony.

14 ""Settle it therefore in your

hearts, not to meditate before A. p. 38. what ye shall answer: 15 For I will give you a mouth and wisdom, a which all your nA<-ts6.io. adversaries shall not be able to gainsay nor resist.

1G °And ye shall be betrayed °Mic7.fi. both by parents, and brethren, *■*»•» and kinsfolks, and friends; and fsome of you shall they cause to , Paoi.i.ss. be put to death.' | *»*

17 And lye shall be hated of j iMatt.io.si all men for my name's sake.

18 rBut there shall not a hair of 'Matt. 10.30. your head perish.

19 In your patience possess ye your souls.

20 'And when ye shall see Je- ■Mittw.u rusalem compassed with armies, Mark 13.14. then know that the desolation thereof is nigh.

21 Then let them which are in Judea flee to the mountains; and let them which are in the midst of it depart out; and let not them that are in the countries enter thereinto.

22 For these be the days of vengeance, that' all things which t nan.9.«.K. are written may be fulfilled. Zecl'' "•L

23 "But woe unto them that are "Matt, M. 19. with child, and to them that

give suck, in those days! for there shall be great distress in the land, and wrath upon this people.

24 And they shall fall by the edge of the sword, and shall be led away captive into all nations: and Jerusalem shall be trodden down of the Gentiles,1 until the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled.

"25 H ?And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring;

20 Men's hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: * for the powers of heaven shall be shaken.

27 And then shall they see the Son of man a coming in a cloud with power and great glory.

28 And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads ; for byour redemption draweth nigh.

38 And all the people came early in the morning to him in the temple, for to hear him.

CHAPTER XXII.

1 The Jews conspire against Christ. 3 Satan prepareth Judas to betray him. 7 The apostles vrej>are the passover. 19 Christ ii/stitittelh his holy supper, 21 corertlyforetelleth of the traitor, 24 dehorteth the rest of his apostles from ambition, 31 assvreth Peter his faith'should not fail : a and yet he should deny him thrire. 3!l lie yirayeth in the mount, and strentt th blood, 47 is be trayed with a kiss: 50 he heuleth Malchiis' ear, 54 he is thrice denied of Peter, 63 shunnfnlh/ abused, (Hi and conj'esseth himself to be the Son of God.

TOW ^the feast of unleavened bread drew nigh, which is called the passover.

2 And bthe chief priests and scribes sought how they might kill him; for they feared the people.

3 If c Then entered Satan into Judas surnamed Iscariot, being of the number of the twelve.

4 And he went his way, and communed with the chief priests and captains, how he might betray him unto them.

5 And they were glad, and d covenanted to give him money.

6 And lie, promised, and sought

opportunity to betray him unto them I in the absence of the multitude.

7 t 'Then came the day of unleavened bread, when the passover must be killed.

8 And he sent Peter and John, saying, Go and prepare us the passover, that we may eat.

9 And they said unto him, Where wilt thou that we prepare?

10 And he said unto them, Behold, when ye are entered into the city, there shall a man meet you, bearing a pitcher of water; follow him into the house where he entereth in.

11 And ye shall say unto the goodman of the house. The Master saith unto thee, Where is the gnestchamber, where I shall eat the passover with my disciples?

12 And he shall shew you a large upper room furnished: there make ready.

13 And they went, and found as he had said unto them: and they made ready the passover.

14 'And when the hour was come, he sat down, and the twelve apostles with him.

15 And he said unto them, I With desire I have desired to eat this passover with you before I suffer:

10 For I say unto you, I will not any more eat thereof, £ until it be fulfilled in the kingdom of God.

17 And he took the cup, and gave thanks, and said, Take this, and divide it among yourselves:

18 For hI say unto you, I will not drink of the fruit of the vine, until the kingdom of God shall come.

19 If 'And he took bread, and gave thanks, and brake it, and gave unto them, saying, This is my body which is given for you: This do in remembrance of me.

20 Likewise also the cup after supper, saying, 'This cup is the new testament in my blood, which is shed for you.

21 If "But, behold, the hand of him that betrayeth me is with me on the table.

22 "And truly the Son of man goeth, "as it was determined: but woe unto that man by whom he is betrayed!

among themselves, which of them it was that should do this thing.

24 If lAnd there was also a strife among them, which of them should be accounted the greatest.

25 'And he said unto them, The kings of the Gentiles exercise lordship over them; and they that exercise authority upon them are called benefactors.

26 "But ye shall not be so: <but he that is greatest among you, let him be as the younger; and he that is chief, as he that doth serve.

27 "For whether is greater, he that sitteth at meat, or he that serveth? is not he that sitteth at meat? but "lam among you as he that serveth.

28 Ye are they which have continued with me in y my temptations.

29 And 2I appoint unto you a kingdom, as my Father hath appointed unto me ;

30 That aye may eat and drink at my table in my kingdom, "and sit on thrones judging the twelve tribes of Israel.

31 K And the Lord said, Simon, Simon, behold, c Satan hath desired to have you, that he may dsift you as wheat:

32 But0I have prayed for thee, that thy faith fail not: 'and when thou art converted, strengthen thy brethren.

33 And he said unto him, Lord, I am ready to go with thee, both into prison, and to death.

34 s And he said, I tell thee, Peter, the cock shall not crow this day, before that thou shalt thrice deny that thou knowest me.

35 h.A.nd he said unto them, When I sent you without purse, and scrip, and shoes, lacked ye any thing? And they said, Nothing.'

36 Then said he unto them, But now, he that hath a purse, let him take it, and likewise his scrip: and he that hath no sword, let him sell his garment, and buy one.

37 For I say unto you, that this that is written must yet be accomplished in me, 'And he was reckoned among the transgressors: for the things concerning me have an end.

I 38 And they said, Lord, behold, j | here are two swords. And he said unto them, It is enough.

39 If kAud he came out, and I 'went, as he was wont, to the mount of Olives; and his disciples also followed him.

40 mAnd when he was at the place, he said unto them, Pray that ye enter not into temptation.

41 "And he was withdrawn from them about a stone's cast, and kneeled down, and prayed,

42 Saying, Father, if thou be t willing, remove this cup from! me: nevertheless, °not my will, but thine, be done.

43 And there appeared p an angel unto him from heaven, strengthening him.

44 lAnd being in an agony he prayed more earnestly: and his sweat was as it were great drops of blood falling down to the ground.

45 And when he rose tip from prayer, and was come to his disciples, he found them sleeping for sorrow,

46 And said unto them, Why sleep ye? rise and rpray, lest ye enter into temptation.

47 T And while he yet spake, "behold a multitude, and he that was called Judas, one of the twelve, went before them, and drew near unto Jesus to kiss him.

48 But Jesus said unto him, Judas, betrayest thou the Son of man with a kiss?

49 When they which were about him saw what would follow, they said unto him, Lord, shall we smite with the sword?

50 T And 'one of them smote the servant of the high priest, and cut off his right ear.

51 And Jesus answered and said, Suffer ye thus far. And he touched his ear, and healed him.

52 "Then Jesus said unto the chief priests, and captains of the temple, and the elders, which were come to him, Be ye come out, as against a thief, with swords and staves?

53 When I was daily with you in the temple, ye stretched forth no hands against me: *but this is your hour, and the power of darkness.

'And Peter followed afar off. 55 "And when they had kindled a fire in the midst of the hall, and were set down together, Peter sat down among them. 50 But a certain maid beheld him as he sat by the fire, and earnestly looked upon him, and said, This man was also with him.

57 And he denied him, saying, Woman, I know him not.

58 bAnd after a little while another saw him, and said, Thou art also of them. And Peter said, Man, I am not.

59 cAnd about the space of one hour after another confidently affirmed, saying, Of a truth this fellow also was with him; for he is a Galilean.

00 And Peter said, Man, I know not what thou sayest. And immediately, while he yet spake, the cock crew.

01 And the Lord turned, and looked upon Peter. dAud Peter remembered the word of the Lord, how he had said unto him, "Before the cock crow, thou shalt deny me thrice.

02 And Peter went out, and wept bitterly.

03 1 'And the men that held Jesus mocked him, and smote him.

04 And when they had blindfolded him, they struck him on the face, and asked him, saying, Prophesy, who is it that smote thee?

Co And many other things blasphemously spake they against him.

60 If 'And as soon as it was day, the elders of the people and the chief priests and the scribes came together, and led him into their council, saying,

68 And if I also ask you, ye will not answer me, nor let me go.

70 Then said they all, Art thou then the Son of God? And he said unto them, 'To say that I am.

3 eAnd Pilate asked him, saying, Art thou the King of the Jews? And he answered him and said, Thou sayest it.

4 Then said Pilate to the chief priests and to the people, 'I find no fault in this man.

5 And they were the more fierce, saying, He stirreth up the people, teaching throughout all Jewry, beginning from Galilee to this place.

6 When Pilate heard of Galilee, he asked whether the man were a Galilean.

7 And as soon as he knew that he belonged unto f Herod's jurisdiction, he sent him to Herod, who himself also was at Jerusalem at that time.

8 II And when Herod saw Jesus, he was exceeding glad: for hhe was desirous to see him of along season, because 'he had heard many things of him; and he hoped to have seen some miracle done by him.

9 Then he questioned with him in many words; but he answered him nothing.
