ed, and his raiment was white and gistering. And, behold, there talked with him two men, which were Moses and Elias: 31 Who appeared in glory, and Spake of his decease, which he should accomplish at jerusalem. 32 But Peter, and they that were with him, were heavy with sleep: and whenthey were awake, they saw his glory, and the two men that stood with him. 33 And it came to pass, as they departed from him, Peter said unto Jesus, Master, it is good for us to be here: and letus make three tabernacles; one for thee, A one for Moses, and one for Elias: not knowing what he said. 34 While he thus spake, there Came a cloud, and overshadowed them; and they feared as they entered into the cloud. 35 And there came a voice out of the cloud, saying, This is my beloved Son: hear him. 36 And when the voice was past, Jesus was found alone. And they kept it close, and told no man in those days any of those things which they had seen. 37 T And it came to pass, that, On the next day, when they were come down from the hill, much people met him. 38 And, behold, a man of the Company cried out, saying, Master, I beseech thee, look upon my Son; for he is mine only child: 39 And, lo, a spirit taketh him, and he suddenly crieth out; and it teareth him that he soameth again; and, bruising him, hardly departeth from him. 40 And I besought thy disciples to cast him out; and they could not.

43 || And they were all amazed
at the mighty power of God.
But, while they wondered every
one at all things which Jesus did,
he said unto his disciples,
44 Let these sayings sink down
into your ears: for the Son of
man shall be delivered into the
hands of men.

52 And sent messengers before his face: and they went, and entered into a village of the Samaritans to make ready for him. 53 And they did not receive him, because his face was as though he would go to Jerusalem. 54 And when his disciples, James and John, saw this, they said, Lord, wilt thou that we command fire to come down from heaven, and consume them, even as Elias did : 55 But he turned, and rebuked them, and said, Ye know not what manner of spirit ye are of. 56 For the Son of man is not come to destroy men’s lives, but to save them. And they went to another village, 57 || And it came to pass, that, as they went in the way, a certain man said unto him, Lord, I will follow thee whithersoever thou goest. 58 And Jesus said unto him, Foxes have holes, and birds of the air have nests; but the Son of man hath not where to lay his head. 59 And he said unto another, Follow me, But he said, Lord, suffer me first to go and bury my father, 60 Jesus said unto him, Let the dead bury their dead: but go thou and preach the kingdom of God. 61 And another also said, Lord, I will follow thee: butlet me first go bid them farewell, which are at home at my house. 62 And Jesus said unto him, No man having put his hand to the plough, and looking back, is fit for the kingdom of God.

so, and sent them two and two before his face into every city and place, whither he himself would COIne. 2 Therefore, said he unto them, The harvest truly is great, but the labourers are few : pray ye, therefore, the lord of the harvest, that he would send forth labourers into his harvest. 3 Go your ways: behold, I send you forth as lambs among wolves. . 4 Carry neither purse, nor scrip, nor shoes: and salute no man by the way. 5 And into whatsoever house ye enter, first say, Peace be to this house. 6 And if the Son of peace be there, your peace shall rest upon it: if not, it shall turn to you again. - 7 And in the same house remain, eating and drinking such things as they give : for the labourer is worthy of his hire. Go not from house to house. 8 And into whatsoever city ye enter, and they receive you, eat such things as are set before you; 9 And heal the sick that are therein, and say unto them, The kingdom of God is come nigh unto you. 10 But into whatsoever city ye enter, and they receive you not, go your ways out into the streets of the same, and say, 11 Even the very dust of your city, which cleaveth on us, we do wipe off against you : notwithstanding, be ye sure of this, that . the kingdom of God is come nigh unto you. 12 But I say unto you, that it shall be more tolerable in that day for Sodom, than for that

And the seventy returned again with joy, saying, Lord, even the devils are subject unto us through thy name. 18 And he said unto them, I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven. 19 Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy; and nothing shall by any means hurt you. 20 Notwithstanding in this rejoice not, that the spirits are subjećt unto you; but rather rejoice, because your names are written in heaven. 21 | In that hour Jesus rejoiced in spirit, and said, I thank thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them unto babes: even so, Father; for so it seemed good in thy sight. 22 All things are delivered to me of my Father; and no man knoweth who the Son is, but the Father; and who the Father is, but the Son, and be to whom

23 T And he turned him unto His disciples, and said privately, Blessed are the eyes which see the things that ye see: 24 For I tell you, that many prophets and kings have desired to see those things which ye see, and have not seen them ; and to hear those things which ye hear, and have not heard them. 25 || And, behold, a certain lawyer stood up, and tempted him, saying, Master, what shall I do to inherit eternal life 2 26 He said unto him, What is written in the law how readest thou ? 27 And he answering, said, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy strength, and with all thy mind; and thy neighbour as thyself. 28 And he said unto him, Thou hast answered right: this do, and thou shalt live. 29 But he, willing to justify himself, said unto Jesus, And who is my neighbour * 30 And Jesus, answering, said, A certain man went down from Jerusalem to Jericho, and fell among thieves, which stripped him of his raiment, and wounded Aim, and departed, leaving him half dead. 31 And, by chance, there came down a certain priest that way; and when he saw him, he passed by on the other side. 32 And likewise a Levite, when he was at the place, came and looked on him, and passed by on the other side. 33 But a certain Samaritan, as he journeyed, came where he was ; and when he saw him, he had compassion on him,

up his wounds, pouring in oil and wine, and set him on his own beast, and broughthim to an inn, and took care of him. 35 And on the morrow, when he departed, he took out two pence, and gave them to the host, and said unto him, Take care of him : and whatsoeverthou spendest more, when I come again, I will repay thee. 36 Which now of these three, thinkest thou, was neighbour unto him that fell among the thieves : 37 And he said, He that shewed mercy on him. Then said Jesus unto him, Go, and do thou likewise. 38 | Now it came to pass, as they went, that he entered into a certain village : and a certain woman, named Martha, received him into her house. 39 And she had a sister called Mary, which also sat at Jesus’ feet, and heard his word. 40 But Martha was cumbered about much serving, and came to him, and said, Lord, dost thou not care that my sister hath left me to serve alone : bid her, therefore, that she help me. 41 And Jesus answered, and said unto her, Martha, Martha, thou art careful, and troubled about many things: 42 But one thing is needful : and Mary hath chosen that good part, which shall not be taken away from her.

A ND it came to pass, that, as he was praying in a certain place, when he ceased, one of his disciples said unto him, Lord, teach us to pray, as John also taught his disciples.

to pray. When ye pray, say, Our Father which art in heaven: Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done, as in heaven, so in earth. 3 Give us day by day our daily bread. 4 And forgive us our sins; for we also forgive every one that is indebted to us. And lead us not into temptation; but deliver us from evil. 5 And he said unto them, Which of you shall have a friend, and shall go unto him at midnight, and say unto him, Friend, lend me three loaves; 6 For a friend of mine in his joutney is come to ine, and I have nothing to set before him : 7 And he from within shall answer, and say, Trouble me not: the door is now shut, and my children are with me in bed; I cannot rise and give thee. 8 I say unto you, Though he will not rise and give him, because he is his friend; yet because of his importunity he will rise and give him as many as he needeth. 9 And I say unto you, Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find : knock, and it shall be opened unto you. 10 For every one that asketh, receiveth; and he that seeketh, findeth ; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened. 11 If a son shall ask bread of any of you that is a father, will he give him a stone : or, if he ask a fish, will he for a fish, give hinn a serpent : 12. Or, if he shall ask an egg, will he offer him a scorpion : 13 If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your

is, heavenly Father give the oly Spirit to them that ask him : 14. T And he was casting out a devil, and it was dumb. And it came to pass, when the devil was gone out, the dumb spake ; and the people wondered. 15 But some of them said, He casteth out devils through Beelzebub the chief of the devils. 16 And others, tempting him, sought of him a sign from heaven. 17 . But he, knowing their thoughts, said unto them, Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and a * divided against a house fall

18 If Satan also be divided against himself, how shall his kingdom stand 2 because ye say that I cast out devils through Beelzebub. 19 And if I by Beelzebub cast out devils, by whom do your sons cast them out? therefore shall they be your judges. 20 But if I with the finger of God cast out devils, no doubt the kingdom of God is come upon you. 21 When a strong man armed keepeth his palace, his goods are in peace : 22 But when a stronger than he shall come upon him, and overcome him, he taketh from him all his armour, wherein he trusted, and divideth his spoils. 23 He that is not with me is against me; and he that gathereth not with me scattereth. 24. When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walketh through dry places, seeking rest; and finding none, he saith, I will return unto my house whence I came Out. 25 And when he cometh, he

findeth it swept and garnished. 26 Then goeth he, and taketh to him seven other spirits more wicked than himself; and they enter in, and dwell there: and the last state of that man is worse than the first. 27 TI And it came to pass, as he spake these things, a certain woman of the company lifted up her voice, and said unto him, Blessed is the womb that bare thee, and the paps which thou hast sucked. 28 But he said, Yea, rather, blessed are they that hear the word of God, and keep it. 29 || And when the people were gathered thick together, he began to say, This is an evil generation : they seek a sign; and there shall no sign be given it, but the sign of Jonas the prophet. 30 For as Jonas was a sign unto the Ninevites, so shall also the Son of man be to this generation. 31 The queen of the south shall rise up in the judgment with the men of this generation, and condemn them : for she came from the utmost parts of the earth, to hear the wisdom of Solomon; and, behold, a greater than Solomon is here. 32 The men of Nineveh shall rise up in the judgment with this generation, and shall condemnit: for they repented at the preaching of Jonas; and, behold, a greater than Jonas is here. 33 No man, when he hath lighted a candle, putteth it in a secretplace, neither underabushel, but on a candlestick, that they which come in may see the light. 34.
