fore men, ■ that they may see your good works, and 'glorify your Father which is in heaven.

17 1 "Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not eome to destroy, but to fulfil.

18 For verily I say unto you, "Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fultllled.

19 'Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach than, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.

20 For I say unto you, That except your righteousness shall exceed y the righteottmew of the scribes and Pharisees, ye shall in uo case enter into the kingdom of heaven.

21 t Ye have heard that it was said 1 by them of old time, 2 Thou shalt not kill; and whosoever shall kill shall be in danger of the judgment:

22 But I say unto you, That 1 whosoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment: and whosoever shall say to his brother, lbRaea, shall be in danger of the council: but whosoever shall say, Thou fool, shall be in danger of hell fire.

23 Therefore Mf thou bring thy gift to the altar, and there rememberest that thy brother hath aught against thee;

24 d Leave there thy gift before the altar, and go thy way; first be reconciled to thy brother, and then come and oii'er thy gift.

25 e Agree with thine adversary quickly, 'while thou art in the way with him; lest at any time the adversary deliver thee to the judge, and the judge deliver thee to the officer, and thou be cast into prison.

20 Verily I say nnto thee, Thou shalt by no means come out thence, till thou hast paid the uttermost farthing.

27 1 Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time, sThou shalt not commit adultery:

28 But I say unto you, That whosoever "looketh on a woman

to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart.

2'J 'And if thy right eye I offend thee, k pluck it out, and cast it from thee: for it is profitable for thee that one of thy members should perish, and not that thy whole body should be east into hell.

30 And if thy right hand offend thee, cut it off, and cast it from thee: for it is profitable for thee that one of thy members should perish, and not that thy .whole body should be cast into hell.

31 It hath been said, 1 Whosoever shall put away his wife, let him give her a writing of divorcement:

32 But I say unto you, That ■"whosoever shall put away his wife, saving for the cause of fornication, causeth her to commit adultery: and whosoever shall marry her that is divorced eoinmitteth adultery.

33 H Again, ye have heard that "it hath been said by them of old time, "Thou shalt not forswear thyself, but P shalt perform unto the Lord thine oaths:

34 But I say unto you, i Swear not at all; neither by heaven; for it is rGod's throne:

35 Nor by the earth; for it is his footstool: neither by Jerusalem; for it is 1 the city of the great King.

36 Neither shalt thou swear by thy head, because thou canst not make one hair white or black.

37 I But let your communication lie, Yea, yea; Nay, nay: for whatsoever is more than these cometh of evil.

38 H Ye have beard that it hath been said, "An eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth:

39 But I say unto you, 'That ye resist not evil: y but whosoever shall smite thee on thy right cheek, turn to him the other also.

40 And if any man will sue thee at the law, and take away thy coat, let him have thy cloak also.

41 And whosoever * shall compel thee to go a mile, go with him twain.

42 Give to him that asketh thee, and "from him that would borrow of thee turn not thou away.

43 1 Ye have heard that it hath

been said, bThou shalt love thy neighbour,e and hate thine enemy.

44 But I say unto you, dLove your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, aud pray efor them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;

45 That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for fhe maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust.

46 s For if ye love them which love you, what reward have ye? do not even the publicans the same?

47 And if ye salute your brethren only, what do ye more than others? do not even the publicans

so?

48 h Be ye therefore perfect, even 'as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.

CHAPTER VI.

1 Christ rontinneth his sermon in the mount, speaking of alms, 5 prayer, 14 forgiving our brethren, Hi,lifting, l'j where our treasure is to be laid U)t, 24 of serving God, and mammon : M ej-horteth not to be careful for worldly things: G.'J but to seek God's kingdom.

TAKE heed that ye do not your I alms before men, to be seen of them: otherwise ye have no reward I of your Father which is in heaven.

2 Therefore when thou doest thine alms, I do not sound a trumpet before thee, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, that they may have glory of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.

3 But when thou doest alms, let not thy left hand know what thy right hand doeth:

4 That thine alms may be in secret: and thy Father which seeth in secret himself b shall reward thee openly.

5 If And when thou prayest, thou shalt not be as the hypocrites are: for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.

6 But thou, when thou prayest, c enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret;

and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly.

7 But when ye pray, duse not vain repetitions, as the heathen do: 'for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking.

8 Be not ye therefore like unto them: for your Father knoweth what things ye have need of, before ye ask him.

9 After this manner therefore pray ye: 'Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.

10 Thy kingdom come, e Thy will be done in earth, has it is Id heaven.

11 Give us this day our > daily bread.

12 And kforgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.

13 'And lead us not into temptation, but ""deliver us from evil: nFor thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.

14 "For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you:

15 But Pif ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.

16 T Moreover when ye fast, be not, as the hypocrites, of a sad countenance: for they disfigure their faces, that they may appear unto men to fast. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.

17 But thou, when thou fastest, 'anoint thine head, and wash thy face;

18 That thou appear not unto men to fast, but unto thy Father which is in secret: and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly.

19 1 "Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal:

20 'But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal:

21 For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.

22 "The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light.

23 But if thine eye be evil, thy

whole body shall be full of dark- | ness. If therefore the light that is in thee be darkness, how great is that darkness!

24 1 'No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. i Ye cannot serve God and mammon.

25 Therefore I say unto you, 1 Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment?

26 "Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they?

27 Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature?

28 And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin:

2!) And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.

30 Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which to day is, and to morrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith?

31 Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal 6hall we be clothed?

32 (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things. "33 But bseek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.

34 Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.

CHAPTER VII.

1 ChriMi ending his sermon in the mount, reproreth rash judgment, R forbiddeth to cast hoi ft things to dogs, r ej-horteth to jirauer, 13 to enter in at the strait gate, ]5 to beware, of false prophets, HI not to be hearers, but men of the word: 24 like houses buildctl on a rock, SB and not on the sand.

JUDGE anot, that ye be not judged.

2 For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: "and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again.

3 c And why beholdcst thou the mote that is in thy brother's eye, but consider not the beam that is in thine own eye?

4 Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the mote out of thine eye; and, behold, a beam is in thine own eye?

5 Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother's eye.

6 1i dGive not that which is holy unto the dogs, neither cast ye your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn again aud rend you.

7 H eAsk, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you:

8 For every one that asketh reeeiveth; aud he that sccketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.

9 «Or what man is there of you, whom if his son ask bread, will he give him a stone?

10 Or if he ask a fish, will he give him a serpent?

11 If ye then, h being evil, know how to give good gifts uufo your children, how much more shall your Father which is in heaven give good things to them that ask him?

12 Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them: for kthis is the law and the prophets.

13 If 'Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat:

14 I Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.

15 If "Beware of false prophets, "which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.

16 PYe shall know them by their fruits. iDo men gather crape6 of thorns, or figs of thistles?

17 Even so 'every good tree bringeth fcrth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit.

18 A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.

ID "Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.

20 Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.

21 U Not every one that saith unto me, 'Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.

22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we "not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?

23 And Mhen will I profess unto them, I never knew you: T depart from me, ye that work iniquity.

24 1[ Therefore "whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock:

25 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock.

20 And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand:

27 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it.

28 And it came to pass, when Jesus had ended these sayings, "the people were astonished at his doctrine:

29 * For he taught them as one having authority^ and not as the scribes.

CHAPTER VIII.

WHEN he was come down from the mountain, great multitudes followed him.

2 "And, behold, there came a leper and worshipped him, saying, Lord, if thou wilt, thou canst make me clean.

3 And Jesus put forth his hand, and touched him, saying, I will; be thou clean. And immediately his leprosy was cleansed.

4 And Jesus saith unto him, bSee thou tell no man; but go thy way, shew thyself to the priest, and offer the gift that c Moses commanded, for a testimony unto them.

5 H d And when Jesus was entered into Capernaum, there came unto him a centurion, beseeching him,

0 And saying, Lord, my servant lleth at home sick of the palsy, grievously tormented.

7 And Jesus saith unto him, I will come and heal him.

8 The centurion answered and said, Lord,' I am not worthy that thou shouldest come under my roof: butf speak the word only, and my servant shall be healed.

o For I am a man under authority, having soldiers under me: and I say to this man, Go, and he goetli; and to another, Come, and he Cometh; and to my servant, Do this, and he doeth it.

10 When Jesus heard it, he marvelled, and said to them that followed, Verily I say unto you, I have not found so great faith, no, not in Israel.

11 And I say unto you, That if many shall come from the east and west, and shall sit down with Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, in the kingdom of heaven:

12 But ''the children of the kingdom shall be cast out into outer darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

13 And Jesus said unto the centurion, Go thy way; and as thou hast believed, so be it done unto thee. And his servant was healed in the selfsame hour.

14 1 k And when Jesus was come into Peter's house, he saw 1 his wife's mother laid, and sick of a fever.

15 And he touched her hand, and the fever left her: and she arose, and ministered unto them.

16 If m When the even was come, they brought unto him many that were possessed with devils: and he east out the spir

its with his word, and healed all that were sick :

IT That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Esaias the prophet, saying, "Himself took our infirmities, and bare our sicknesses.

18 H Now when Jesus saw great multitudes about him, he gave commandment to depart unto the other side.

19 °And a certain scribe came, and said unto him, Master, I will follow thee whithersoever thou goest.

20 And Jesus saith unto him, The foxes have holes, and the birds of the air ham nests; but the Son of man hath not where to lay his head.

21 PAnd another of his disciples said unto him, Lord, i suffer me first to go and bury my father.

22 But Jesus said unto him, Follow me; and let the dead bury their dead.

23 T And when he was entered into a ship, his disciples followed him.

24 rAnd, behold, there arose a great tempest in the sea, insomuch that the ship was covered with the waves: but he was asleep.

25 And his disciples came to him, and awoke him, saying, Lord, Bare us: we perish.

20 And he saith unto them, Why are ye fearful, O ye of little faith? Then • he arose, and rebuked the winds and the sea; and there was a great calm.

27 But the men marvelled, saying, What manner of man is this, that even the winds and the sea obey him!

28 'And when he was come to the other side into the country of the Gcrgescncs, there met him two possessed with devils, coming out of the tombs, exceeding fierce, so that no man might pass by that way.

29 And, behold, they cried out, saying, What have we to do with thee, Jesus, thou Son of God? art thou come hither to torment us before the time?

30 And there was a good way off from them a herd of many swine feeding.

t 31 So the devils besought him, I saying, If thou cast us out, suffer

us to go away into the herd of swine.

32 And he said unto them, Go. And when they were come out, they went into the herd of swine: and, behold, the whole herd of swine ran violently down a steep place into the sea, and perished in the waters.

33 And they that kept them fled, and went their ways into the city, and told every thing, and what was befallen to the possessed of the devils.

34 And, behold, the whole city came out to meet Jesus: and when they saw him, they besought him that he would depart out of their coasts.

CHAPTER IX.

2 Christ curing one sick of the palsif, 9 ralltfh Matthew from the receipt of custom, 10 eateth with publicans and sinners, 14 defendrth his disciples for not fasting, 20 enreth the bloody issue, 23 raiseth from death Jairus' tlaughter, yiveth sight to two blind men, Pig heateth a dumb man ;kmsessed of a ileril, 36 and hath compassion of the multitude.

AND he entered into a ship, and passed over, »and came into his own city.

2 bAnd, behold, they brought to him a man sick of the palsy, lying on a bed: cand Jesus seeing their faith said unto the siek of the palsy; Son, be of good cheer; thy sins be forgiven thee.

3 And, behold, certain of the scribes said within themselves, This man blasphemeth.

4 And Jesus d knowing their thoughts said, Wherefore think ye evil in your hearts?

5 For whether is easier, to say, Thy sins be forgiven thee; or to say, Arise, and walk?

6 But that ye may know that the Son of man hath power on earth to forgive sins, (then saith he to the sick of the palsy,) Arise, take up thy bed, and go unto thine house.

7 And he arose, and departed to his house.

8 But when the multitudes saw it, they marvelled, and glorified God, which had given such power unto men.

9 H eAnd as Jesus passed forth from thence, he saw a man, named Matthew, sitting at the receipt of custom: and he saith unto him, Follow me. And he arose, and followed him.
