the king, behold, there came wise men from the east to Jerusalem,

But when Herod was dead, behold, an angel of the Lord appeareth

mouth of God.

the kingdom of heaven is at hand.
And seeing the multitudes, he went up into a mountain: and when

exceed the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, ye shall
in no wise enter into the kingdom of heaven.
21 Ye have heard that it was said to them of old time, Thou
shalt not kill; and whosoever shall kill shall be in danger
of the judgment:
22 but I say unto you, that every one who is angry with his
brother shall be in danger of the judgment; and whosoever shall
say to his brother, Raca, shall be in danger of the council;
and whosoever shall say, Thou fool, shall be in danger of the
hell of fire.

be reconciled to thy brother, and then come and offer thy gift.

thence, till thou have paid the last farthing.

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

thy members should perish, and not that thy whole body should
be cast into hell.

saving for the cause of fornication, causeth her to commit adultery:
and whosoever shall marry her that is divorced committeth adultery.

unto life, and few there be that find it.

and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.
7:9 Or what man is there of you, whom if his son ask bread,
will he give him a stone?
7:10 Or if he ask a fish, will he give him a serpent?
And the scribes and Pharisees brought unto him a woman taken
in adultery; and when they had set her in the midst, 8:4 They
say unto him, Master, this woman was taken in adultery, in the
very act. 8:5 Now Moses in the law commanded us, that such should
be stoned: but what sayest thou? 8:6 This they said, tempting
him, that they might have to accuse him. But Jesus stooped down,
and with his finger wrote on the ground, as though he heard
them not. 8:7 So when they continued asking him, he lifted up
himself, and said unto them, He that is without sin among you,
let him first cast a stone at her.

Messiah, he sent his disciples
3 to ask him, Are you the one who is to come, or should
we expect someone else?

5 The blind receive sight, the lame walk, those who have leprosy
are cleansed, the deaf hear, the dead are raised, and the good
news is proclaimed to the poor.
6 Blessed is anyone who does not stumble on account of me.
7 As Johns disciples were leaving, Jesus began to speak
to the crowd about John: What did you go out into the
wilderness to see? A reed swayed by the wind?
8 If not, what did you go out to see? A man dressed in fine
clothes? No, those who wear fine clothes are in kings
9 Then what did you go out to see? A prophet? Yes, I tell you,
and more than a prophet.
10 This is the one about whom it is written: I will
send my messenger ahead of you, who will prepare your way before
11 Truly I tell you, among those born of women there has not
risen anyone greater than John the Baptist; yet whoever is least
in the kingdom of heaven is greater than he.
12 From the days of John the Baptist until now, the kingdom
of heaven has been subjected to violence, and violent people
have been raiding it.

14 And if you are willing to accept it, he is the Elijah who
was to come.
15 Whoever has ears, let them hear.
16 To what can I compare this generation? They are like
children sitting in the marketplaces and calling out to others:
17 We played the pipe for you, and you did not dance;
we sang a dirge, and you did not mourn.
18 For John came neither eating nor drinking, and they say,
He has a demon.
19 The Son of Man came eating and drinking, and they say, Here
is a glutton and a drunkard, a friend of tax collectors and
sinners. But wisdom is proved right by her deeds.
For all the prophets and the law prophesied until John.
11:14 And if ye will receive it, this is Elias, which was for
Woe unto thee, Chorazin! woe unto thee, Bethsaida! for if the
mighty works, which were done in you, had been done in Tyre
and Sidon, they would have repented long ago in sackcloth and
11:22 But I say unto you, It shall be more tolerable for Tyre
and Sidon at the day of judgment, than for you.
11:23 And thou, Capernaum, which art exalted unto heaven, shalt
be brought down to hell: for if the mighty works, which have
been done in thee, had been done in Sodom, it would have remained
until this day.
Wherefore I say unto you, All manner of sin and blasphemy shall
be forgiven unto men: but the blasphemy against the Holy Ghost
shall not be forgiven unto men.

Holy Ghost, it shall not be forgiven him, neither in this world,
neither in the world to come.

make the tree corrupt, and his fruit corrupt: for the tree is
known by his fruit.
But he answered and said unto them, An evil and adulterous generation
seeketh after a sign; and there shall no sign be given to it,
but the sign of the prophet Jonas:

belly; so shall the Son of man be three days and three nights
in the heart of the earth.

the same is my brother, and sister, and mother.

harvest I will say to the reapers, Gather ye together first

the wheat into my barn.
He told them still another parable: The kingdom of heaven
is like yeast that a woman took and mixed into about sixty pounds
of flour until it worked all through the dough.
13:55 Is not this the carpenter's son?
is not his mother called Mary? and his brethren, James, and
Joses, and Simon, and Judas? 13:56 And his sisters, are they
not all with us? Whence then hath this man all these things?
13: 57 And they were offended in him. But Jesus said unto
them, A prophet is not without honour, save in his own country,
and in his own house.
13:58 And he did not many mighty works there because of their
For Herod had laid hold on John, and bound him, and put him
in prison for Herodias' sake, his brother Philip's wife. 14:4
For John said unto him, It is not lawful for thee to have her.
And when it was evening, his disciples came to him, saying,
This is a desert place, and the time is now past; send the multitude
away, that they may go into the villages, and buy themselves
victuals. 14:16 But Jesus said unto them, They need not depart;
give ye them to eat.
14:17 And they say unto him, We have here but five loaves, and
14:18 He said, Bring them hither to me.
14:19 And he commanded the multitude to sit down on the grass,
and took the five loaves, and the two fishes, and looking up
to heaven, he blessed, and brake, and gave the loaves to his
disciples, and the disciples to the multitude.
14:20 And they did all eat, and were filled: and they took up
of the fragments that remained twelve baskets full.
14:21 And they that had eaten were about
five thousand men, beside women and children.
And in the fourth watch of the night Jesus went unto them, walking
on the sea. 14:26 And when the disciples saw him walking on
the sea, they were troubled, saying, It is a spirit; and they
cried out for fear. 14:27 But straightway Jesus spake unto them,
saying, Be of good cheer; it is I; be not afraid.
Not that which goeth into the mouth defileth a man; but that
which cometh out of the mouth, this defileth a man.
15:12 Then came his disciples, and said unto him, Knowest thou
that the Pharisees were offended, after they heard this saying?
15:13 But he answered and said, Every plant, which my heavenly
Father hath not planted, shall be rooted up.
15:14 Let them alone: they be blind leaders of the blind. And
if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch.
15:15 Then answered Peter and said unto him, Declare unto us
15:16 And Jesus said, Are ye also yet without understanding?
15:17 Do not ye yet understand, that whatsoever entereth in
at the mouth goeth into the belly, and is cast out into the
15:18 But those things which proceed out of the mouth come forth
from the heart; and they defile the man.
And, behold, a woman of Canaan came out of the same coasts,
and cried unto him, saying, Have mercy on me, O Lord, thou Son
of David; my daughter is grievously vexed with a devil. 15:23
But he answered her not a word. And his disciples came and besought
him, saying, Send her away; for she crieth after us. 15:24 But
he answered and said, I am not sent but unto the lost sheep
of the house of Israel. 15:25 Then came she and worshipped him,
saying, Lord, help me. 15:26 But he answered and said, It is
not meet to take the children's bread, and to cast it to dogs.
15:27 And she said, Truth, Lord: yet the dogs eat of the crumbs
which fall from their masters' table.
|15:32 Then Jesus called
his disciples unto him, and said, I have compassion on the multitude,
because they continue with me now three days, and have nothing
to eat: and I will not send them away fasting, lest they faint
in the way.
15:33 And his disciples say unto him, Whence should we have
so much bread in the wilderness, as to fill so great a multitude?
15:34 And Jesus saith unto them, How many loaves have ye? And
they said, Seven, and a few little fishes.
15:35 And he commanded the multitude to sit down on the ground.
15:36 And he took the seven loaves and the fishes, and gave
thanks, and brake them, and gave to his disciples, and the disciples
to the multitude.
15:37 And they did all eat, and were filled: and they took up
of the broken meat that was left seven baskets full.
15:38 And they that did eat were four thousand men, beside women
Then Jesus said unto them, Take heed and beware of the leaven
of the Pharisees and of the Sadducees.
16:7 And they reasoned among themselves, saying, It is because
we have taken no bread.
16:8 Which when Jesus perceived, he said unto them, O ye of
little faith, why reason ye among yourselves, because ye have
brought no bread?
16:9 Do ye not yet understand, neither remember the five loaves
of the five thousand, and how many baskets ye took up?
16:10 Neither the seven loaves of the four thousand, and how
many baskets ye took up?
16:11 How is it that ye do not understand that I spake it not
to you concerning bread, that ye should beware of the leaven
of the Pharisees and of the Sadducees?
16:12 Then understood they how that he bade them not beware
of the leaven of bread, but of the doctrine of the Pharisees
and of the Sadducees.
When Jesus came into the coasts of Caesarea Philippi, he asked
his disciples, saying, Whom do men say that I the Son of man
|16:14 And they said,
Some say that thou art John the Baptist: some, Elias; and others,
Jeremias, or one of the prophets.
He saith unto them, But whom say ye that I am?
And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ, the
Son of the living God.
16:17 And Jesus answered and said unto him, Blessed art thou,
Simon Barjona: for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto
thee, but my Father which is in heaven.
And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this
rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not
prevail against it.
And after six days Jesus taketh Peter, James, and John his brother,
and bringeth them up into an high mountain apart,
17:2 And was transfigured before them: and his face did shine
as the sun, and his raiment was white as the light.
17:3 And, behold, there appeared unto them Moses and Elias talking
While he yet spake, behold, a bright cloud overshadowed 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.
|17:10 And his disciples
asked him, saying, Why then say the scribes that Elias must
But I say unto you, That Elias is come already, and they knew
him not, but have done unto him whatsoever they listed. Likewise
shall also the Son of man suffer of them.
17:13 Then the disciples understood that he spake unto them
of John the Baptist.
17:24 And when they were come to Capernaum, they that received
tribute money came to Peter, and said, Doth not your master
17:25 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?
17:26 Peter saith unto him, Of strangers. Jesus saith unto him,
Then are the children free.
17:27 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.
At the same time came the disciples unto Jesus, saying, Who
is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven?
18:2 And Jesus called a little child unto him, and set him in
the midst of them,
18:3 And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted,
and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom
18:4 Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little
child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven.
18:5 And whoso shall receive one such little child in my name
18:6 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.
18:7 Woe unto the world because of offences! for it must needs
be that offences come; but woe to that man by whom the offence
|18:9 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.
|19:3 The Pharisees also
came unto him, tempting him, and saying unto him, Is it lawful
for a man to put away his wife for every cause? 19:4 And he
answered and said unto them, Have ye not read, that he which
made them at the beginning made them male and female,
19:5 And said, For this cause shall a man leave father and mother,
and shall cleave to his wife: and they twain shall be one flesh?
19:6 Wherefore they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore
God hath joined together, let not man put asunder.
For there are some eunuchs, which were so born from their mother's
womb: and there are some eunuchs, which were made eunuchs of
men: and there be eunuchs, which have made themselves eunuchs
for the kingdom of heaven's sake. He that is able to receive
it, let him receive it.
And, behold, one came and said unto him, Good Master, what good
thing shall I do, that I may have eternal life?
And again I say unto you, It is easier for a camel to go through
the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom
But many that are first shall be last; and the last shall be
And when he saw a fig tree in the way, he came to it, and found
nothing thereon, but leaves only, and said unto it, Let no fruit
grow on thee henceforward for ever. And presently the fig tree
21:20 And when the disciples saw it, they marvelled, saying,
How soon is the fig tree withered away!
21:23 And when he was come into the temple, the chief priests
and the elders of the people came unto him as he was teaching,
and said, By what authority doest thou these things? and who
gave thee this authority?
21:24 And Jesus answered and said unto them, I also will ask
you one thing, which if ye tell me, I in like wise will tell
you by what authority I do these things.
21:25 The baptism of John, whence was it? from heaven, or of
men? And they reasoned with themselves, saying, If we shall
say, From heaven; he will say unto us, Why did ye not then believe
21:26 But if we shall say, Of men; we fear the people; for all
hold John as a prophet.
21:27 And they answered Jesus, and said, We cannot tell. And
he said unto them, Neither tell I you by what authority I do
1 And Jesus answered and spake unto them again by parables,
2 The kingdom of heaven is like unto a certain king, which made
a marriage for his son,
3 And sent forth his servants to call them that were bidden
to the wedding: and they would not come.
4 Again, he sent forth other servants, saying, Tell them which
are bidden, Behold, I have prepared my dinner: my oxen and my
fatlings are killed, and all things are ready: come unto the
5 But they made light of it, and went their ways, one to his
farm, another to his merchandise:
6 And the remnant took his servants, and entreated them spitefully,
and slew them.
7 But when the king heard thereof, he was wroth: and he sent
forth his armies, and destroyed those murderers, and burned
up their city.
8 Then saith he to his servants, The wedding is ready, but they
which were bidden were not worthy.
9 Go ye therefore into the highways, and as many as ye shall
find, bid to the marriage.
10 So those servants went out into the highways, and gathered
together all as many as they found, both bad and good: and the
wedding was furnished with guests.
And when the king came in to see the guests, he saw there a
man which had not on a wedding garment:
12 And he saith unto him, Friend, how camest thou in hither
not having a wedding garment? And he was speechless.
13 Then said the king to the servants, Bind him hand and foot,
and take him away, and cast him into outer darkness, there shall
be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
But woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye
shut up the kingdom of heaven against men: for ye neither go
in yourselves, neither suffer ye them that are entering to go
And Jesus went out, and departed from the temple: and his disciples
came to him for to shew him the buildings of the temple.
24:2 And Jesus said unto them, See ye not all these things?
verily I say unto you, There shall not be left here one stone
upon another, that shall not be thrown down.
24:3 And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came
unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things
be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end
of the world?
24:4 And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no
man deceive you.
24:5 For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and
shall deceive many.
24:6 And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that
ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass,
but the end is not yet.
24:7 For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against
kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes,
in divers places.
24:8 All these are the beginning of sorrows.
24:9 Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall
kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name's
24:10 And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one
another, and shall hate one another.
24:11 And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive
24:12 And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall
24:13 But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall
24:14 And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all
the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the
24:15 When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation,
spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso
readeth, let him understand:)
Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins,
which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom.
25:2 And five of them were wise, and five were foolish.
25:3 They that were foolish took their lamps, and took no oil
25:4 But the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps.
25:5 While the bridegroom tarried, they all slumbered and slept.
25:6 And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom
cometh; go ye out to meet him.
25:7 Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps.
25:8 And the foolish said unto the wise, Give us of your oil;
for our lamps are gone out.
25:9 But the wise answered, saying, Not so; lest there be not
enough for us and you: but go ye rather to them that sell, and
buy for yourselves.
25:10 And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came; and they
that were ready went in with him to the marriage: and the door
25:11 Afterward came also the other virgins, saying, Lord, Lord,
open to us.
25:12 But he answered and said, Verily I say unto you, I know
25:13 Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour
wherein the Son of man cometh.
Now when Jesus was in Bethany, in the house of Simon the leper,
26:7 There came unto him a woman having an alabaster box of
very precious ointment, and poured it on his head, as he sat
26:8 But when his disciples saw it, they had indignation, saying,
To what purpose is this waste?
26:9 For this ointment might have been sold for much, and given
to the poor.
26:10 When Jesus understood it, he said unto them, Why trouble
ye the woman? for she hath wrought a good work upon me.
26:11 For ye have the poor always with you; but me ye have not
26:12 For in that she hath poured this ointment on my body,
she did it for my burial.
26:13 Verily I say unto you, Wheresoever this gospel shall be
preached in the whole world, there shall also this, that this
woman hath done, be told for a memorial of her.
26:14 Then one of the twelve, called Judas Iscariot, went unto
the chief priests,
26:15 And said unto them, What will ye give me, and I will deliver
him unto you? And they covenanted with him for thirty pieces
26:16 And from that time he sought opportunity to betray him.
And as they were eating, Jesus took bread, and blessed it, and
brake it, and gave it to the disciples, and said, Take, eat;
this is my body.
26:27 And he took the cup, and gave thanks, and gave it to them,
saying, Drink ye all of it;
Then cometh Jesus with them unto a place called Gethsemane,
and saith unto the disciples, Sit ye here, while I go and pray
And, behold, one of them which were with Jesus stretched out
his hand, and drew his sword, and struck a servant of the high
priest's, and smote off his ear.
26:52 Then said Jesus unto him, Put up again thy sword into
his place: for all they that take the sword shall perish with
The thieves also, which were crucified with him, cast the same
in his teeth.
And about the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying,
Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani? that is to say, My God, my God,
why hast thou forsaken me?
And the graves were opened; and many bodies of the saints which
Now when the centurion, and they that were with him, watching
Jesus, saw the earthquake, and those things that were done,
they feared greatly, saying, Truly this was the Son of God.
|27:57 When the even was
come, there came a rich man of Arimathaea, named Joseph, who
also himself was Jesus' disciple: 27:58 He went to Pilate, and
begged the body of Jesus. Then Pilate commanded the body to
27:59 And when Joseph had taken the body, he wrapped it in a
clean linen cloth,
27:60 And laid it in his own new tomb, which he had hewn out
in the rock: and he rolled a great stone to the door of the
sepulchre, and departed.
In the end of the sabbath, as it began to dawn toward the first
day of the week, came Mary Magdalene and the other Mary to see
28:2 And, behold, there was a great earthquake: for the angel
of the Lord descended from heaven, and came and rolled back
the stone from the door, and sat upon it.
28:3 His countenance was like lightning, and his raiment white
28:4 And for fear of him the keepers did shake, and became as
