Hearken; Behold, there went out a sower to sow:
And it came to pass, as he sowed, some fell by the way side, and the fowls
of the air came and devoured it up.
And some fell on stony ground, where it had not much earth; and immediately
it sprang up, because it had no depth of earth:
But when the sun was up, it was scorched; and because it had no root, it
And some fell among thorns, and the thorns grew up, and choked it, and
it yielded no fruit.
And other fell on good ground, and did yield fruit that sprang up and increased;
and brought forth, some thirty, and some sixty, and some an hundred.
And he said unto them, He that hath ears to hear, let him hear.
And when he was alone, they that were about him with the twelve asked of
him the parable.
And he said unto them, Unto you it is given to know the mystery of the
kingdom of God: but unto them that are without, all these things are done
That seeing they may see, and not perceive; and hearing they may hear,
and not understand; lest at any time they should be converted, and their sins
should be forgiven them.
And he said unto them, Know ye not this parable? and how then will ye know
The sower soweth the word.
And these are they by the way side, where the word is sown; but when they
have heard, Satan cometh immediately, and taketh away the word that was sown
in their hearts.
And these are they likewise which are sown on stony ground; who, when they
have heard the word, immediately receive it with gladness;
And have no root in themselves, and so endure but for a time: afterward,
when affliction or persecution ariseth for the word's sake, immediately they
And these are they which are sown among thorns; such as hear the word,
And the cares of this world, and the deceitfulness of riches, and the lusts
of other things entering in, choke the word, and it becometh unfruitful.
And these are they which are sown on good ground; such as hear the word,
and receive it, and bring forth fruit, some thirtyfold, some sixty, and some
And he said unto them, Is a candle brought to be put under a bushel, or
under a bed? and not to be set on a candlestick?
For there is nothing hid, which shall not be manifested; neither was any
thing kept secret, but that it should come abroad.
If any man have ears to hear, let him hear.
And he said unto them, Take heed what ye hear: with what measure ye mete,
it shall be measured to you: and unto you that hear shall more be given.
For he that hath, to him shall be given: and he that hath not, from him
shall be taken even that which he hath.
And he said, So is the kingdom of God, as if a man should cast seed into
And should sleep, and rise night and day, and the seed should spring and
grow up, he knoweth not how.
For the earth bringeth forth fruit of herself; first the blade, then the
ear, after that the full corn in the ear.
But when the fruit is brought forth, immediately he putteth in the sickle,
because the harvest is come.
And he said, Whereunto shall we liken the kingdom of God? or with what
comparison shall we compare it?
It is like a grain of mustard seed, which, when it is sown in the earth,
is less than all the seeds that be in the earth:
But when it is sown, it groweth up, and becometh greater than all herbs,
and shooteth out great branches; so that the fowls of the air may lodge under
the shadow of it.
And with many such parables spake he the word unto them, as they were able
to hear it.

over unto the other side.
And when they had sent away the multitude, they took him even as he was
in the ship. And there were also with him other little ships.
And there arose a great storm of wind, and the waves beat into the ship,
so that it was now full.
And he was in the hinder part of the ship, asleep on a pillow: and they
awake him, and say unto him, Master, carest thou not that we perish?
And he arose, and rebuked the wind, and said unto the sea, Peace, be still.
And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm.
And he said unto them, Why are ye so fearful? how is it that ye have no
And they feared exceedingly, and said one to another, What manner of man
is this, that even the wind and the sea obey him?
And when he was come out of the ship, immediately there met him out of
the tombs a man with an unclean spirit,
- And they came over unto the other side of the sea, into the country of
Who had his dwelling among the tombs; and no man could bind him, no, not
Because that he had been often bound with fetters and chains, and the chains
had been plucked asunder by him, and the fetters broken in pieces: neither
could any man tame him.
And always, night and day, he was in the mountains, and in the tombs, crying,
and cutting himself with stones.
But when he saw Jesus afar off, he ran and worshipped him,
And cried with a loud voice, and said, What have I to do with thee, Jesus,
thou Son of the most high God? I adjure thee by God, that thou torment me
For he said unto him, Come out of the man, thou unclean spirit.
And he asked him, What is thy name? And he answered, saying, My name is
Legion: for we are many.
And he besought him much that he would not send them away out of the country.
Now there was there nigh unto the mountains a great herd of swine feeding.
And all the devils besought him, saying, Send us into the swine, that we
may enter into them.
And forthwith Jesus gave them leave. And the unclean spirits went out,
and entered into the swine: and the herd ran violently down a steep place
into the sea, (they were about two thousand;) and were choked in the sea.
And they that fed the swine fled, and told it in the city, and in the country.
And they went out to see what it was that was done.
And they come to Jesus, and see him that was possessed with the devil,
and had the legion, sitting, and clothed, and in his right mind: and they
And they that saw it told them how it befell to him that was possessed
with the devil, and also concerning the swine.
And they began to pray him to depart out of their coasts.
And when he was come into the ship, he that had been possessed with the
devil prayed him that he might be with him.
Howbeit Jesus suffered him not, but saith unto him, Go home to thy friends,
and tell them how great things the Lord hath done for thee, and hath had compassion
And he departed, and began to publish in Decapolis how great things Jesus
had done for him: and all men did marvel.
And when Jesus was passed over again by ship unto the other side, much
people gathered unto him: and he was nigh unto the sea.
And, behold, there cometh one of the rulers of the synagogue, Jairus by
name; and when he saw him, he fell at his feet,
And besought him greatly, saying, My little daughter lieth at the point
of death: I pray thee, come and lay thy hands on her, that she may be healed;
and she shall live.
And Jesus went with him; and much people followed him, and thronged him.
And a certain woman, which had an issue of blood twelve years,
And had suffered many things of many physicians, and had spent all that
she had, and was nothing bettered, but rather grew worse,
When she had heard of Jesus, came in the press behind, and touched his
For she said, If I may touch but his clothes, I shall be whole.
And straightway the fountain of her blood was dried up; and she felt in
her body that she was healed of that plague.
And Jesus, immediately knowing in himself that virtue had gone out of him,
turned him about in the press, and said, Who touched my clothes?
And his disciples said unto him, Thou seest the multitude thronging thee,
and sayest thou, Who touched me?
And he looked round about to see her that had done this thing.
But the woman fearing and trembling, knowing what was done in her, came
and fell down before him, and told him all the truth.
And he said unto her, Daughter, thy faith hath made thee whole; go in peace,
and be whole of thy plague.
While he yet spake, there came from the ruler of the synagogue's house
certain which said, Thy daughter is dead: why troublest thou the Master any
As soon as Jesus heard the word that was spoken, he saith unto the ruler
of the synagogue, Be not afraid, only believe.
And he suffered no man to follow him, save Peter, and James, and John the
brother of James.
And he cometh to the house of the ruler of the synagogue, and seeth the
tumult, and them that wept and wailed greatly.
And when he was come in, he saith unto them, Why make ye this ado, and
weep? the damsel is not dead, but sleepeth.
And they laughed him to scorn. But when he had put them all out, he taketh
the father and the mother of the damsel, and them that were with him, and
entereth in where the damsel was lying.
And he took the damsel by the hand, and said unto her, Talitha cumi; which
is, being interpreted, Damsel, I say unto thee, arise.
And straightway the damsel arose, and walked; for she was of the age of
twelve years. And they were astonished with a great astonishment.
And he charged them straitly that no man should know it; and commanded
that something should be given her to eat.
And when the sabbath day was come, he began to teach in the synagogue:
and many hearing him were astonished, saying, From whence hath this man these
things? and what wisdom is this which is given unto him, that even such mighty
works are wrought by his hands?
- And he went out from thence, and came into his own country; and his disciples
Is not this the carpenter, the son of Mary, the brother of James, and Joses,
and of Juda, and Simon? and are not his sisters here with us? And they were
offended at him.
But Jesus, said unto them, A prophet is not without honour, but in his
own country, and among his own kin, and in his own house.
And he could there do no mighty work, save that he laid his hands upon
a few sick folk, and healed them.
And he marvelled because of their unbelief. And he went round about the
And he called unto him the twelve, and began to send them forth by two
and two; and gave them power over unclean spirits;
And commanded them that they should take nothing for their journey, save
a staff only; no scrip, no bread, no money in their purse:
But be shod with sandals; and not put on two coats.
And he said unto them, In what place soever ye enter into an house, there
abide till ye depart from that place.
And whosoever shall not receive you, nor hear you, when ye depart thence,
shake off the dust under your feet for a testimony against them. Verily I
say unto you, It shall be more tolerable for Sodom and Gomorrha in the day
of judgment, than for that city.
And they went out, and preached that men should repent.
And they cast out many devils, and anointed with oil many that were sick,
and healed them.
And king Herod heard of him; (for his name was spread abroad:) and he said,
That John the Baptist was risen from the dead, and therefore mighty works
do shew forth themselves in him.
Others said, That it is Elias. And others said, That it is a prophet, or
as one of the prophets.
But when Herod heard thereof, he said, It is John, whom I beheaded: he
is risen from the dead.
For Herod himself had sent forth and laid hold upon John, and bound him
in prison for Herodias' sake, his brother Philip's wife: for he had married
For John had said unto Herod, It is not lawful for thee to have thy brother's
Therefore Herodias had a quarrel against him, and would have killed him;
but she could not:
For Herod feared John, knowing that he was a just man and an holy, and
observed him; and when he heard him, he did many things, and heard him gladly.
And when a convenient day was come, that Herod on his birthday made a supper
to his lords, high captains, and chief estates of Galilee;
And when the daughter of the said Herodias came in, and danced, and pleased
Herod and them that sat with him, the king said unto the damsel, Ask of me
whatsoever thou wilt, and I will give it thee.
And he sware unto her, Whatsoever thou shalt ask of me, I will give it
thee, unto the half of my kingdom.
And she went forth, and said unto her mother, What shall I ask? And she
said, The head of John the Baptist.
And she came in straightway with haste unto the king, and asked, saying,
I will that thou give me by and by in a charger the head of John the Baptist.
And the king was exceeding sorry; yet for his oath's sake, and for their
sakes which sat with him, he would not reject her.
And immediately the king sent an executioner, and commanded his head to
be brought: and he went and beheaded him in the prison,
And brought his head in a charger, and gave it to the damsel: and the damsel
gave it to her mother.
And when his disciples heard of it, they came and took up his corpse, and
laid it in a tomb.
And the apostles gathered themselves together unto Jesus, and told him
all things, both what they had done, and what they had taught.
And he said unto them, Come ye yourselves apart into a desert place, and
rest a while: for there were many coming and going, and they had no leisure
so much as to eat.
And they departed into a desert place by ship privately.
And the people saw them departing, and many knew him, and ran afoot thither
out of all cities, and outwent them, and came together unto him.
And Jesus, when he came out, saw much people, and was moved with compassion
toward them, because they were as sheep not having a shepherd: and he began
to teach them many things.
And when the day was now far spent, his disciples came unto him, and said,
This is a desert place, and now the time is far passed:
Send them away, that they may go into the country round about, and into
the villages, and buy themselves bread: for they have nothing to eat.
He answered and said unto them, Give ye them to eat. And they say unto
him, Shall we go and buy two hundred pennyworth of bread, and give them to
He saith unto them, How many loaves have ye? go and see. And when they
knew, they say, Five, and two fishes.
And he commanded them to make all sit down by companies upon the green
And they sat down in ranks, by hundreds, and by fifties.
And when he had taken the five loaves and the two fishes, he looked up
to heaven, and blessed, and brake the loaves, and gave them to his disciples
to set before them; and the two fishes divided he among them all.
And they did all eat, and were filled.
And they took up twelve baskets full of the fragments, and of the fishes.
And they that did eat of the loaves were about five thousand men.
And straightway he constrained his disciples to get into the ship, and
to go to the other side before unto Bethsaida, while he sent away the people.
And when he had sent them away, he departed into a mountain to pray.
And when even was 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:
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 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 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 were
sore amazed in themselves beyond measure, and wondered.
For they considered not the miracle of the loaves: for their heart was
And when they had passed over, they came into the land of Gennesaret, and
drew to the shore.
And when they were come out of the ship, straightway they knew him,
And ran 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 entered, 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.
And when they saw some of his disciples eat bread with defiled, that is
to say, with unwashen, hands, they found fault.
- Then came together unto him the Pharisees, and certain of the scribes,
which came from Jerusalem.
For the Pharisees, and all the Jews, except they wash their hands oft,
eat not, holding the tradition of the elders.
And when they come from the 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, brasen vessels, and of tables.
Then the Pharisees and scribes asked him, 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 hath Esaias prophesied of you hypocrites,
as it is written, This people honoureth me with their lips, but their heart
is far from me.
Howbeit in vain do they worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments
For laying aside the commandment of God, ye hold the tradition of men,
as the washing of pots and cups: and many other such like things ye do.
And he said unto them, Full well ye reject the commandment of God, that
ye may keep your own tradition.
For Moses said, Honour 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, It is Corban, that
is to say, a gift, by whatsoever thou mightest be profited by me; he shall
And ye suffer him no more to do ought for his father or his mother;
Making the word of God of none effect 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 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
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 was entered into the house from the people, his disciples asked
him concerning the parable.
And he saith unto them, Are ye so without understanding also? Do ye not
perceive, that whatsoever thing from without entereth into the man, it cannot
Because it entereth not into 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 the man.
For from within, out of the heart of men, proceed evil thoughts, adulteries,
Thefts, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, lasciviousness, an evil eye,
blasphemy, pride, foolishness:
All these evil things come from within, and defile the man.
And from thence he arose, and went into the borders of Tyre and Sidon,
and entered into an house, and would have no man know it: but he could not
For a certain woman, whose young daughter had an unclean spirit, heard
of him, and came and fell at his feet:
The woman was a Greek, a Syrophenician 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: 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 table
eat of the children's crumbs.
And he said unto her, For this saying go thy way; the devil is gone out
of thy daughter.
And when she was come to her house, she found the devil gone out, and her
daughter laid upon the bed.
And again, departing from the coasts of Tyre and Sidon, he came unto the
sea of Galilee, through the midst of the coasts of Decapolis.
And they bring unto him one 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 multitude, 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, that
is, Be opened.
And straightway his ears were opened, and the string of his tongue was
loosed, and he spake plain.
And he charged 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 astonished, saying, He hath done all things well:
he maketh both the deaf to hear, and the dumb to speak.
And he sighed deeply in his spirit, and saith, Why doth this generation
seek after a sign? verily I say unto you, There shall no sign be given unto
- In those days the multitude being very great, and having nothing to eat,
Jesus called his disciples unto him, and saith unto them,
- I have compassion on the multitude, because 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
the way: for divers of them came from far.
- And his disciples answered 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 said, Seven.
- And he commanded the people to sit down on the ground: 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 up of the broken meat that
was left seven baskets.
- And they that had eaten were about four thousand: and he sent them away.
- And straightway he entered into a ship with his disciples, and came into
the parts of Dalmanutha.
- And the Pharisees came forth, and began to question with him, seeking of
him a sign from heaven, tempting him.
And he left them, and entering into the ship again departed to the other
Now the disciples had forgotten to take bread, neither had they in the
ship with them more than one loaf.
And he charged them, saying, Take heed, beware of the leaven of the Pharisees,
and of the leaven of Herod.
And they 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 have
no bread? perceive ye not yet, neither understand? have ye your heart yet
Having eyes, see ye not? and having ears, hear ye not? and do ye not remember?
When I brake the five loaves among five thousand, how many baskets full
of fragments took ye up? They say unto him, Twelve.
And when the seven among four thousand, how many baskets full of fragments
took ye up? And they said, Seven.
And he said unto them, How is it that ye do not understand?
And he cometh to Bethsaida; and they bring a blind man unto him, and besought
him to touch him.
And he 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 ought.
And he looked up, and said, I see men as trees, walking.
After that he put his hands again upon his eyes, and 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, nor
tell it to any in the town.
And Jesus went out, and his disciples, into the towns of Caesarea Philippi:
and by the way he asked his disciples, saying unto them, Whom do men say that
And they answered, John the Baptist; but some say, Elias; and others, One
of the prophets.
And he saith unto them, But whom say ye that I am? And Peter answereth
and saith unto him, Thou art the Christ.
And he charged them that they should tell no man of him.
And he began to teach them, that the Son of man must suffer many things,
and be rejected of the elders, and of the chief priests, and scribes, and
be killed, and after three days rise again.
And he spake that saying openly. And Peter took him, and began to rebuke
But when he had turned about and looked on his disciples, he rebuked Peter,
saying, Get thee behind me, Satan: for thou savourest not the things that
be of God, but the things that be of men.
And when he had called the 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 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
his own soul?
Or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?
Whosoever therefore shall be ashamed of me and of my words in this 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 after six days Jesus taketh with him Peter, and James, and John, and
leadeth them up into an high mountain apart by themselves: and he was transfigured
- And he said unto them, Verily I say unto you, That there be some of them
that stand here, which shall not taste of death, till they have seen the kingdom
of God come with power.
And his raiment became shining, exceeding white as snow; so as no fuller
on earth can white them.
And there appeared unto them Elias with Moses: and they were talking with
And Peter answered 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 he wist not what to say; for they were sore afraid.
And 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, 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 charged them that they should
tell no man what things they had seen, till the Son of man were risen from
And they kept that saying with themselves, questioning one with another
what the rising from the dead should mean.
And they asked him, saying, Why say the scribes that Elias must first come?
And he answered and told them, Elias verily 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 say unto you, That Elias is indeed come, and they have done unto
him whatsoever they listed, as it is written of him.
And when he came to his disciples, he saw a great multitude about them,
and the scribes questioning with them.
And straightway all the people, when they beheld him, were greatly amazed,
and running to him saluted him.
And he asked the scribes, What question ye with them?
And one of the multitude answered and said, Master, I have brought unto
thee my son, which hath a dumb spirit;
And wheresoever he taketh him, he teareth him: and 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 answereth 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 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 father, How long is it ago since this came unto him? And
he said, Of a child.
And ofttimes it hath cast him into the fire, and into the waters, to 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 possible to
him that believeth.
And straightway the father of the child cried out, and said with tears,
Lord, I believe; help thou mine unbelief.
When Jesus saw that the people came running together, he rebuked the 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 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 him up; and he arose.
And when he was come into the house, his disciples asked him privately,
Why could not we cast him out?
And he said unto them, This kind can come forth by nothing, but by prayer
And they departed thence, and passed through Galilee; and he would not
that any man should know it.
For he 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 that saying, and were afraid to ask him.
And he came to Capernaum: and being in the house he asked them, What was
it that ye disputed among yourselves by the way?
But they held their peace: for by 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 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
taken him in his arms, he said unto them,
Whosoever shall receive one of such children in my name, receiveth me:
and whosoever shall receive me, receiveth not me, but him that sent me.
And John answered him, saying, Master, we saw one casting out devils in
thy name, and he followeth not us: and we forbad him, because he followeth
But 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 us is on our part.
For whosoever shall give you a cup of water to 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 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 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 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.
And if thine eye offend thee, pluck it out: it is better for thee to enter
into the kingdom of God with one eye, than having two eyes to be cast into
Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.
For every one shall be salted with fire, and every sacrifice shall be salted
Salt is good: but if the salt have lost his saltness, wherewith will ye
season it? Have salt in yourselves, and have peace one with another.
And he answered and said unto them, What did Moses command you?
- And he arose from thence, and cometh into the coasts of Judaea 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 lawful for a man to
put away his wife? tempting him.
And they said, Moses suffered to write a bill of divorcement, and to put
And Jesus answered and said unto them, For the hardness of your heart he
wrote you this precept.
But from the beginning of the creation God made them male and female.
For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and cleave to his
And they twain shall be one flesh: so then they are no more twain, but
What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder.
And in the house his disciples asked him again of the same matter.
And he saith unto them, Whosoever shall put away his wife, and marry another,
committeth adultery against her.
And if a woman shall put away her husband, and be married to another, she
And they brought young children to him, that he should touch them: and
his disciples rebuked those that brought them.
But when Jesus saw it, he was much displeased, 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, 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 them, and blessed them.
And when he was gone forth into the way, there came one running, and kneeled
to him, and asked him, Good Master, what shall I do that I may inherit eternal
And Jesus said unto him, Why callest thou me good? there is none good but
one, that is, God.
Thou knowest the commandments, Do not commit adultery, Do not kill, Do
not steal, Do not bear false witness, Defraud not, Honour thy father and mother.
And he answered and said unto him, Master, all these have I observed from
Then Jesus beholding him loved him, and said unto him, One thing thou lackest:
go thy way, sell whatsoever thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt
have treasure in heaven: and come, take up the cross, and follow me.
And he was sad at that saying, and went away grieved: for he had great
And Jesus looked round about, and saith unto his disciples, How hardly
shall they that have riches enter into the kingdom of God!
And the disciples were astonished at his words. But Jesus answereth again,
and saith unto them, Children, how hard is it for them that trust in riches
to enter into the kingdom of God!
It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a
rich man to enter into the kingdom of God.
And they were astonished out of measure, saying among themselves, Who then
can be saved?
And Jesus looking upon them saith, With men it is impossible, but not with
God: for with God all things are possible.
Then Peter began to say unto him, Lo, we have left all, and have followed
And Jesus answered and said, Verily I say unto you, There is no man that
hath left house, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or
children, or lands, for my sake, and the gospel's,
But he shall receive an hundredfold now in this time, houses, and brethren,
and sisters, and mothers, and children, and lands, with persecutions; and
in the world to come eternal life.
But many that are first shall be last; and the last first.
And they were in the way going up to Jerusalem; and Jesus went before them:
and they were amazed; and as they followed, they were afraid. And he took
again the twelve, and began to tell them what things should happen unto him,
Saying, Behold, we go up to Jerusalem; and the Son of man shall be delivered
unto the chief priests, and unto the scribes; and they shall condemn him to
death, and shall deliver him to the Gentiles:
And they shall mock him, and shall scourge him, and shall spit upon him,
and shall kill him: and the third day he shall rise again.
And James and John, the sons of Zebedee, come unto him, saying, Master,
we would that thou shouldest do for us whatsoever we shall desire.
And he said unto them, What would ye that I should do for you?
They said unto him, Grant unto us that we may sit, one on thy right hand,
and the other on thy left hand, in thy glory.
But Jesus said unto them, Ye know not what ye ask: can ye drink of the
cup that I drink of? and be baptized with the baptism that I am baptized with?
And they said unto him, We can. And Jesus said unto them, Ye shall indeed
drink of the cup that I drink of; and with the baptism that I am baptized
withal shall ye be baptized:
But to sit on my right hand and on my left hand is not mine to give; but
it shall be given to them for whom it is prepared.
And when the ten heard it, they began to be much displeased with James
But Jesus called them to him, and saith unto them, Ye know that they which
are accounted to rule over the Gentiles exercise lordship over them; and their
great ones exercise authority upon them.
But so shall it not be among you: but whosoever will be great among you,
shall be your ministeR:
And whosoever of you will be the chiefest, shall be servant of all.
For even the Son of man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister,
and to give his life a ransom for many.
And they came to Jericho: and as he went out of Jericho with his disciples
and a great number of people, blind Bartimaeus, the son of Timaeus, sat by
the highway side begging.
And when he heard that it was Jesus of Nazareth, he began to cry out, and
say, Jesus, thou son of David, have mercy on me.
And many charged him that he should hold his peace: but he cried the more
a great deal, Thou son of David, have mercy on me.
And Jesus stood still, and commanded him to be called. And they call the
blind man, saying unto him, Be of good comfort, rise; he calleth thee.
And he, casting away his garment, rose, and came to Jesus.
And Jesus answered and said unto him, What wilt thou that I should do unto
thee? The blind man said unto him, Lord, that I might receive my sight.
And Jesus said unto him, Go thy way; thy faith hath made thee whole. And
immediately he received his sight, and followed Jesus in the way.
And saith unto them, Go your way into the village over against you: and
as soon as ye be entered into it, ye shall find a colt tied, whereon never
man sat; loose him, and bring him.
- And when they came nigh to Jerusalem, unto Bethphage and Bethany, at the
mount of Olives, he sendeth forth two of his disciples,
And if any man say unto you, Why do ye this? say ye that the Lord hath
need of him; and straightway he will send him hither.
And they went their way, and found the colt tied by the door without in
a place where two ways met; and they loose him.
And certain of them that stood there said unto them, What do ye, loosing
And they said unto them even as Jesus had commanded: and they let them
And they brought the colt to Jesus, and cast their garments on him; and
he sat upon him.
And many spread their garments in the way: and others cut down branches
off the trees, and strawed them in the way.
And they that went before, and they that followed, cried, saying, Hosanna;
Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord:
Blessed be the kingdom of our father David, that cometh in the name of
the Lord: Hosanna in the highest.
And Jesus entered into Jerusalem, and into the temple: and when he had
looked round about upon all things, and now the eventide was come, he went
out unto Bethany with the twelve.
And on the morrow, when they were come from Bethany, he was hungry:
And seeing a fig tree afar off having leaves, he came, if haply he might
find any thing thereon: and when he came to it, he found nothing but leaves;
for the time of figs was not yet.
And Jesus answered and said unto it, No man eat fruit of thee hereafter
for ever. And his disciples heard it.
And they come to Jerusalem: and Jesus went into the temple, and began to
cast out them that sold and bought in the temple, and overthrew the tables
of the moneychangers, and the seats of them that sold doves;
And would not suffer that any man should carry any vessel through the temple.
And he taught, saying unto them, Is it not written, My house shall be called
of all nations the house of prayer? but ye have made it a den of thieves.
And the scribes and chief priests heard it, and sought how they might destroy
him: for they feared him, because all the people was astonished at his doctrine.
And when even was come, he went out of the city.
And in the morning, as they passed by, they saw the fig tree dried up from
And Peter calling to remembrance saith unto him, Master, behold, the fig
tree which thou cursedst is withered away.
And Jesus answering saith unto them, Have faith in God.
For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain,
Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his
heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass;
he shall have whatsoever he saith.
Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe
that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.
And when ye stand praying, forgive, if ye have ought against any: that
your Father also which is in heaven may forgive you your trespasses.
But if ye do not forgive, neither will your Father which is in heaven forgive
And they come again to Jerusalem: and as he was walking in the temple,
there come to him the chief priests, and the scribes, and the elders,
And say unto him, By what authority doest thou these things? and who gave
thee this authority to do these things?
And Jesus answered and said unto them, I will also ask of you one question,
and answer me, and I will tell you by what authority I do these things.
The baptism of John, was it from heaven, or of men? answer me.
And they reasoned with themselves, saying, If we shall say, From heaven;
he will say, Why then did ye not believe him?
But if we shall say, Of men; they feared the people: for all men counted
John, that he was a prophet indeed.
And they answered and said unto Jesus, We cannot tell. And Jesus answering
saith unto them, Neither do I tell you by what authority I do these things.
And have ye not read this scripture; The stone which the builders rejected
is become the head of the corner:
- And he began to speak unto them by parables. A certain man planted a vineyard,
and set an hedge about it, and digged a place for the winefat, and built a
tower, and let it out to husbandmen, and went into a far country.
- And at the season he sent to the husbandmen a servant, that he might receive
from the husbandmen of the fruit of the vineyard.
- And they caught him, and beat him, and sent him away empty.
- And again he sent unto them another servant; and at him they cast stones,
and wounded him in the head, and sent him away shamefully handled.
- And again he sent another; and him they killed, and many others; beating
some, and killing some.
- Having yet therefore one son, his wellbeloved, he sent him also last unto
them, saying, They will reverence my son.
- But those husbandmen said among themselves, This is the heir; come, let
us kill him, and the inheritance shall be our's.
- And they took him, and killed him, and cast him out of the vineyard.
- What shall therefore the lord of the vineyard do? he will come and destroy
the husbandmen, and will give the vineyard unto others.
This was the Lord's doing, and it is marvellous in our eyes?
And they sought to lay hold on him, but feared the people: for they knew
that he had spoken the parable against them: and they left him, and went their
And they send unto him certain of the Pharisees and of the Herodians, to
catch him in his words.
And when they were come, they say unto him, Master, we know that thou art
true, and carest for no man: for thou regardest not the person of men, but
teachest the way of God in truth: Is it lawful to give tribute to Caesar,
Shall we give, or shall we not give? But he, knowing their hypocrisy, said
unto them, Why tempt ye me? bring me a penny, that I may see it.
And they brought it. And he saith unto them, Whose is this image and superscription?
And they said unto him, Caesar's.
And Jesus answering said unto them, Render to Caesar the things that are
Caesar's, and to God the things that are God's. And they marvelled at him.
Then come unto him the Sadducees, which say there is no resurrection; and
they asked him, saying,
Master, Moses wrote unto us, If a man's brother die, and leave his wife
behind him, and leave no children, that his brother should take his wife,
and raise up seed unto his brother.
Now there were seven brethren: and the first took a wife, and dying left
And the second took her, and died, neither left he any seed: and the third
And the seven had her, and left no seed: last of all the woman died also.
In the resurrection therefore, when they shall rise, whose wife shall she
be of them? for the seven had her to wife.
And Jesus answering said unto them, Do ye not therefore err, because ye
know not the scriptures, neither the power of God?
For when they shall rise from the dead, they neither marry, nor are given
in marriage; but are as the angels which are in heaven.
And as touching the dead, that they rise: have ye not read in the book
of Moses, how in the bush God spake unto him, saying, I am the God of Abraham,
and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob?
He is not the God of the dead, but the God of the living: ye therefore
do greatly err.
And one of the scribes came, and having heard them reasoning together,
and perceiving that he had answered them well, asked him, Which is the first
commandment of all?
And Jesus answered him, The first of all the commandments is, Hear, O Israel;
The Lord our God is one Lord:
And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy
soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first
And the second is like, namely this, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.
There is none other commandment greater than these.
And the scribe said unto him, Well, Master, thou hast said the truth: for
there is one God; and there is none other but he:
And to love him with all the heart, and with all the understanding, and
with all the soul, and with all the strength, and to love his neighbour as
himself, is more than all whole burnt offerings and sacrifices.
And when Jesus saw that he answered discreetly, he said unto him, Thou
art not far from the kingdom of God. And no man after that durst ask him any
And Jesus answered and said, while he taught in the temple, How say the
scribes that Christ is the son of David?
For David himself said by the Holy Ghost, The LORD said to my Lord, Sit
thou on my right hand, till I make thine enemies thy footstool.
David therefore himself calleth him Lord; and whence is he then his son?
And the common people heard him gladly.
And he said unto them in his doctrine, Beware of the scribes, which love
to go in long clothing, and love salutations in the marketplaces,
And the chief seats in the synagogues, and the uppermost rooms at feasts:
Which devour widows' houses, and for a pretence make long prayers: these
shall receive greater damnation.
And Jesus sat over against the treasury, and beheld how the people cast
money into the treasury: and many that were rich cast in much.
And there came a certain poor widow, and she threw in two mites, which
make a farthing.
And he called unto him his disciples, and saith unto them, Verily I say
unto you, That this poor widow hath cast more in, than all they which have
cast into the treasury:
For all they did cast in of their abundance; but she of her want did cast
in all that she had, even all her living.
And Jesus answering said unto him, Seest thou these great buildings? there
shall not be left one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down.
- And as he went out of the temple, one of his disciples saith unto him,
Master, see what manner of stones and what buildings are here!
And as he sat upon the mount of Olives over against the temple, Peter and
James and John and Andrew asked him privately,
Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign when all
these things shall be fulfilled?
And Jesus answering them began to say, Take heed lest any man deceive you:
For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive
And when ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars, be ye not troubled:
for such things must needs be; but the end shall not be yet.
For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and
there shall be earthquakes in divers places, and there shall be famines and
troubles: these are the beginnings of sorrows.
But take heed to yourselves: for they shall deliver you up to councils;
and in the synagogues ye shall be beaten: and ye shall be brought before rulers
and kings for my sake, for a testimony against them.
And the gospel must first be published among all nations.
But when they shall lead you, and deliver you up, take no thought beforehand
what ye shall speak, neither do ye premeditate: but whatsoever shall be given
you in that hour, that speak ye: for it is not ye that speak, but the Holy
Now the brother shall betray the brother to death, and the father the son;
and children shall rise up against their parents, and shall cause them to
be put to death.
And ye shall be hated of all men for my name's sake: but he that shall
endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.
But when ye shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel
the prophet, standing where it ought not, (let him that readeth understand,)
then let them that be in Judaea flee to the mountains:
And let him that is on the housetop not go down into the house, neither
enter therein, to take any thing out of his house:
And let him that is in the field not turn back again for to take up his
But woe to them that are with child, and to them that give suck in those
And pray ye that your flight be not in the winter.
For in those days shall be affliction, such as was not from the beginning
of the creation which God created unto this time, neither shall be.
And except that the Lord had shortened those days, no flesh should be saved:
but for the elect's sake, whom he hath chosen, he hath shortened the days.
And then if any man shall say to you, Lo, here is Christ; or, lo, he is
there; believe him not:
For false Christs and false prophets shall rise, and shall shew signs and
wonders, to seduce, if it were possible, even the elect.
But take ye heed: behold, I have foretold you all things.
But in those days, after that tribulation, the sun shall be darkened, and
the moon shall not give her light,
And the stars of heaven shall fall, and the powers that are in heaven shall
And then shall they see the Son of man coming in the clouds with great
power and glory.
And then shall he send his angels, and shall gather together his elect
from the four winds, from the uttermost part of the earth to the uttermost
part of heaven.
Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When her branch is yet tender, and
putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is neaR:
So ye in like manner, when ye shall see these things come to pass, know
that it is nigh, even at the doors.
Verily I say unto you, that this generation shall not pass, till all these
things be done.
Heaven and earth shall pass away: but my words shall not pass away.
But of that day and that hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels which
are in heaven, neither the Son, but the Father.
Take ye heed, watch and pray: for ye know not when the time is.
For the Son of Man is as a man taking a far journey, who left his house,
and gave authority to his servants, and to every man his work, and commanded
the porter to watch.
Watch ye therefore: for ye know not when the master of the house cometh,
at even, or at midnight, or at the cockcrowing, or in the morning:
Lest coming suddenly he find you sleeping.
And what I say unto you I say unto all, Watch.
But they said, Not on the feast day, lest there be an uproar of the people.
- After two days was the feast of the passover, and of unleavened bread:
and the chief priests and the scribes sought how they might take him by craft,
and put him to death.
And being in Bethany in the house of Simon the leper, as he sat at meat,
there came a woman having an alabaster box of ointment of spikenard very precious;
and she brake the box, and poured it on his head.
And there were some that had indignation within themselves, and said, Why
was this waste of the ointment made?
For it might have been sold for more than three hundred pence, and have
been given to the poor. And they murmured against her.
And Jesus said, Let her alone; why trouble ye her? she hath wrought a good
work on me.
For ye have the poor with you always, and whensoever ye will ye may do
them good: but me ye have not always.
She hath done what she could: she is come aforehand to anoint my body to
Verily I say unto you, Wheresoever this gospel shall be preached throughout
the whole world, this also that she hath done shall be spoken of for a memorial
And Judas Iscariot, one of the twelve, went unto the chief priests, to
betray him unto them.
And when they heard it, they were glad, and promised to give him money.
And he sought how he might conveniently betray him.
And the first day of unleavened bread, when they killed the passover, his
disciples said unto him, Where wilt thou that we go and prepare that thou
mayest eat the passover?
And he sendeth forth two of his disciples, and saith unto them, Go ye into
the city, and there shall meet you a man bearing a pitcher of wateR: follow
And wheresoever he shall go in, say ye to the goodman of the house, The
Master saith, Where is the guestchamber, where I shall eat the passover with
And he will shew you a large upper room furnished and prepared: there make
ready for us.
And his disciples went forth, and came into the city, and found as he had
said unto them: and they made ready the passover.
And in the evening he cometh with the twelve.
And as they sat and did eat, Jesus said, Verily I say unto you, One of
you which eateth with me shall betray me.
And they began to be sorrowful, and to say unto him one by one, Is it I?
and another said, Is it I?
And he answered and said unto them, It is one of the twelve, that dippeth
with me in the dish.
The Son of man indeed goeth, as it is written of him: but woe to that man
by whom the Son of man is betrayed! good were it for that man if he had never
And as they did eat, Jesus took bread, and blessed, and brake it, and gave
to them, and said, Take, eat: this is my body.
And he took the cup, and when he had given thanks, he gave it to them:
and they all drank of it.
And he said unto them, This is my blood of the new testament, which is
shed for many.
Verily I say unto you, I will drink no more of the fruit of the vine, until
that day that I drink it new in the kingdom of God.
And when they had sung an hymn, they went out into the mount of Olives.
And Jesus saith unto them, All ye shall be offended because of me this
night: for it is written, I will smite the shepherd, and the sheep shall be
But after that I am risen, I will go before you into Galilee.
But Peter said unto him, Although all shall be offended, yet will not I.
And Jesus saith unto him, Verily I say unto thee, That this day, even in
this night, before the cock crow twice, thou shalt deny me thrice.
But he spake the more vehemently, If I should die with thee, I will not
deny thee in any wise. Likewise also said they all.
And they came to a place which was named Gethsemane: and he saith to his
disciples, Sit ye here, while I shall pray.
And he taketh with him Peter and James and John, and began to be sore amazed,
and to be very heavy;
And saith unto them, My soul is exceeding sorrowful unto death: tarry ye
here, and watch.
And he went forward a little, and fell on the ground, and prayed that,
if it were possible, the hour might pass from him.
And he said, Abba, Father, all things are possible unto thee; take away
this cup from me: nevertheless not what I will, but what thou wilt.
And he cometh, and findeth them sleeping, and saith unto Peter, Simon,
sleepest thou? couldest not thou watch one hour?
Watch ye and pray, lest ye enter into temptation. The spirit truly is ready,
but the flesh is weak.
And again he went away, and prayed, and spake the same words.
And when he returned, he found them asleep again, (for their eyes were
heavy,) neither wist they what to answer him.
And he cometh the third time, and saith unto them, Sleep on now, and take
your rest: it is enough, the hour is come; behold, the Son of man is betrayed
into the hands of sinners.
Rise up, let us go; lo, he that betrayeth me is at hand.
And immediately, while he yet spake, cometh Judas, one of the twelve, and
with him a great multitude with swords and staves, from the chief priests
and the scribes and the elders.
And he that betrayed him had given them a token, saying, Whomsoever I shall
kiss, that same is he; take him, and lead him away safely.
And as soon as he was come, he goeth straightway to him, and saith, Master,
master; and kissed him.
And they laid their hands on him, and took him.
And one of them that stood by drew a sword, and smote a servant of the
high priest, and cut off his ear.
And Jesus answered and said unto them, Are ye come out, as against a thief,
with swords and with staves to take me?
I was daily with you in the temple teaching, and ye took me not: but the
scriptures must be fulfilled.
And they all forsook him, and fled.
And there followed him a certain young man, having a linen cloth cast about
his naked body; and the young men laid hold on him:
And he left the linen cloth, and fled from them naked.
And they led Jesus away to the high priest: and with him were assembled
all the chief priests and the elders and the scribes.
And Peter followed him afar off, even into the palace of the high priest:
and he sat with the servants, and warmed himself at the fire.
And the chief priests and all the council sought for witness against Jesus
to put him to death; and found none.
For many bare false witness against him, but their witness agreed not together.
And there arose certain, and bare false witness against him, saying,
We heard him say, I will destroy this temple that is made with hands, and
within three days I will build another made without hands.
But neither so did their witness agree together.
And the high priest stood up in the midst, and asked Jesus, saying, Answerest
thou nothing? what is it which these witness against thee?
But he held his peace, and answered nothing. Again the high priest asked
him, and said unto him, Art thou the Christ, the Son of the Blessed?
And Jesus said, I am: and ye shall see the Son of man sitting on the right
hand of power, and coming in the clouds of heaven.
Then the high priest rent his clothes, and saith, What need we any further
Ye have heard the blasphemy: what think ye? And they all condemned him
to be guilty of death.
And some began to spit on him, and to cover his face, and to buffet him,
and to say unto him, Prophesy: and the servants did strike him with the palms
of their hands.
And as Peter was beneath in the palace, there cometh one of the maids of
the high priest:
And when she saw Peter warming himself, she looked upon him, and said,
And thou also wast with Jesus of Nazareth.
But he denied, saying, I know not, neither understand I what thou sayest.
And he went out into the porch; and the cock crew.
And a maid saw him again, and began to say to them that stood by, This
is one of them.
And he denied it again. And a little after, they that stood by said again
to Peter, Surely thou art one of them: for thou art a Galilaean, and thy speech
But he began to curse and to swear, saying, I know not this man of whom
And the second time the cock crew. And Peter called to mind the word that
Jesus said unto him, Before the cock crow twice, thou shalt deny me thrice.
And when he thought thereon, he wept.
And Pilate asked him, Art thou the King of the Jews? And he answering said
unto them, Thou sayest it.
- And straightway in the morning the chief priests held a consultation with
the elders and scribes and the whole council, and bound Jesus, and carried
him away, and delivered him to Pilate.
And the chief priests accused him of many things: but he answered nothing.
And Pilate asked him again, saying, Answerest thou nothing? behold how
many things they witness against thee.
But Jesus yet answered nothing; so that Pilate marvelled.
Now at that feast he released unto them one prisoner, whomsoever they desired.
And there was one named Barabbas, which lay bound with them that had made
insurrection with him, who had committed murder in the insurrection.
And the multitude crying aloud began to desire him to do as he had ever
done unto them.
But Pilate answered them, saying, Will ye that I release unto you the King
of the Jews?
For he knew that the chief priests had delivered him for envy.
But the chief priests moved the people, that he should rather release Barabbas
And Pilate answered and said again unto them, What will ye then that I
shall do unto him whom ye call the King of the Jews?
And they cried out again, Crucify him.
Then Pilate said unto them, Why, what evil hath he done? And they cried
out the more exceedingly, Crucify him.
And so Pilate, willing to content the people, released Barabbas unto them,
and delivered Jesus, when he had scourged him, to be crucified.
And the soldiers led him away into the hall, called Praetorium; and they
call together the whole band.
And they clothed him with purple, and platted a crown of thorns, and put
it about his head,
And began to salute him, Hail, King of the Jews!
And they smote him on the head with a reed, and did spit upon him, and
bowing their knees worshipped him.
And when they had mocked him, they took off the purple from him, and put
his own clothes on him, and led him out to crucify him.
And they compel one Simon a Cyrenian, who passed by, coming out of the
country, the father of Alexander and Rufus, to bear his cross.
And they bring him unto the place Golgotha, which is, being interpreted,
The place of a skull.
And they gave him to drink wine mingled with myrrh: but he received it
And when they had crucified him, they parted his garments, casting lots
upon them, what every man should take.
And it was the third hour, and they crucified him.
And the superscription of his accusation was written over, THE KING OF
And with him they crucify two thieves; the one on his right hand, and the
other on his left.
And the scripture was fulfilled, which saith, And he was numbered with
And they that passed by railed on him, wagging their heads, and saying,
Ah, thou that destroyest the temple, and buildest it in three days,
Save thyself, and come down from the cross.
Likewise also the chief priests mocking said among themselves with the
scribes, He saved others; himself he cannot save.
Let Christ the King of Israel descend now from the cross, that we may see
and believe. And they that were crucified with him reviled him.
And when the sixth hour was come, there was darkness over the whole land
until the ninth hour.
And at the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying, Eloi, Eloi,
lama sabachthani? which is, being interpreted, My God, my God, why hast thou
And some of them that stood by, when they heard it, said, Behold, he calleth
And one ran and filled a spunge full of vinegar, and put it on a reed,
and gave him to drink, saying, Let alone; let us see whether Elias will come
to take him down.
And Jesus cried with a loud voice, and gave up the ghost.
And the veil of the temple was rent in twain from the top to the bottom.
And when the centurion, which stood over against him, saw that he so cried
out, and gave up the ghost, he said, Truly this man was the Son of God.
There were also women looking on afar off: among whom was Mary Magdalene,
and Mary the mother of James the less and of Joses, and Salome;
(Who also, when he was in Galilee, followed him, and ministered unto him;)
and many other women which came up with him unto Jerusalem.
And now when the even was come, because it was the preparation, that is,
the day before the sabbath,
Joseph of Arimathaea, an honourable counsellor, which also waited for the
kingdom of God, came, and went in boldly unto Pilate, and craved the body
And Pilate marvelled if he were already dead: and calling unto him the
centurion, he asked him whether he had been any while dead.
And when he knew it of the centurion, he gave the body to Joseph.
And he bought fine linen, and took him down, and wrapped him in the linen,
and laid him in a sepulchre which was hewn out of a rock, and rolled a stone
unto the door of the sepulchre.
And Mary Magdalene and Mary the mother of Joses beheld where he was laid.
And very early in the morning the first day of the week, they came unto
the sepulchre at the rising of the sun.
- And when the sabbath was past, Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of James,
and Salome, had bought sweet spices, that they might come and anoint him.
And they said among themselves, Who shall roll us away the stone from the
door of the sepulchre?
And when they looked, they saw that the stone was rolled away: for it was
And entering into the sepulchre, they saw a young man sitting on the right
side, clothed in a long white garment; and they were affrighted.
And he saith unto them, Be not affrighted: Ye seek Jesus of Nazareth, which
was crucified: he is risen; he is not here: behold the place where they laid
But go your way, tell his disciples and Peter that he goeth before you
into Galilee: there shall ye see him, as he said unto you.
And they went out quickly, and fled from the sepulchre; for they trembled
and were amazed: neither said they any thing to any man; for they were afraid.
Now when Jesus was risen early the first day of the week, he appeared first
to Mary Magdalene, out of whom he had cast seven devils.
And she went and told them that had been with him, as they mourned and
And they, when they had heard that he was alive, and had been seen of her,
After that he appeared in another form unto two of them, as they walked,
and went into the country.
And they went and told it unto the residue: neither believed they them.
Afterward he appeared unto the eleven as they sat at meat, and upbraided
them with their unbelief and hardness of heart, because they believed not
them which had seen him after he was risen.
And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel
to every creature.
He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth
not shall be damned.
And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast
out devils; they shall speak with new tongues;
They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall
not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.
So then after the Lord had spoken unto them, he was received up into heaven,
and sat on the right hand of God.
And they went forth, and preached every where, the Lord working with them,
and confirming the word with signs following. Amen.
