In Ot. 1o So likewise ye, when ye shall have done all those things which are commanded you, say, We are unprofitable servants: we have done that which was our duty to do. 11 of And it came to pass, as he went to Jerusalem, that he passed through the midst of Samaria and Galilee. 12 And, as he entered into a certain village, there met him ten men that were lepers, which stood afar off: 13 And they histed up their voices, and said, Jesus, Master, have mercy on us. 14 And, when he saw them, he said unto them, Go shew yourselves unto the priests. And it came to pass, that, as they went, they were cleansed. 15 And one of them, when he saw that he was healed, turned back, and with a loud voice glorified God, 16 And fell down on his face at his feet, giving him thanks: and he was a Samaritan. 17 And Jesus answering, said, Were there not ten cleansed ? but where are the nine * 18 There are not found that returned to give glory to God, save this stranger. 19 And he said unto him, Arise, go thy way; thy faith hath made thce whole. 20 || And when he was demanded of the Pharisees, when

ND he spake a parable unto them, to this end, that men ought always to pray, and not to faint; 2 Saying, There was in a city a judge, which feared not God, neither regarded man: 3 And there was a widow in that city; and she came unto him, saying, Avenge me of mine adversary. 4 And he would not for awhile: but afterward he said within himself, Though I fear not God, nor regard man ; 5 Yet, because this widow troubleth me, I will avenge her, lest by her continual coming she Weary me. 6 And the Lord said, Hear what the unjust judge saith. 7 And shall not God avenge his own elect, which cry dayandnight unto him, though he bear long with them :

them speedily. . Nevertheless, when the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth : 9 || And he spake this parable unto certain which trusted in themselves that they were rightcous, and despised others: 10 Two men went up into the temple to pray; the One a Pharisee, and the other a publican. 11 The Pharisee stood and prayed thus with himself, God, I thank thee, that I am not as other men are, extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even as this publiCall. 12 I, fast twice in the week, I give tithes of all that I possess. 13 And the publican, standing afar off, would not lift up so much as his eyes unto heaven, but smote upon his breast, saying, God be merciful to me a sinner. 14 I tell you, This man went down to his house justified rather than the other: for every one that exalteth himself shall be abased; and he that humbleth himself shall be exalted. 15 T And they brought unto him also infants, that he would touch them : but when his disciples saw it, they rebuked them. 19 But Jesus called them unto him, and said, Suffer little children to come unto me, and forbid them not : for of such is the kingdom of God. 17 Verily Isay unto you, Whosoever shall not receive the kingdom of God as a little child, shall in no wise enter therein. 18 is And a certain ruler asked him, saying, Good Master, what shall I do to inheriteterial life? 19 And Jesus said unto him, Why callest thou me good? noné is good, save one, that is, God.

Jesus heard these things, he said unto him, Yet lackest thou one thing: sell all that thou hast, and distribute unto the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven; and come, follow me. 23 And when he heard this, he was very sorrowful: for he was very rich. 24 And, when Jesus saw that he was very sorrowful, he said, How hardly shall they that have riches enterinto the kingdom of God! 25 For it is easier for a camel to go through a needle's eye, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God. 26 And they that heard it said, Who then can be saved : 27, And he said, The things which are impossible with men are possible with God. 28 || Then Peter said, Lo, we have left all, and followed thee. 29 And he said unto them, Verily I say unto you, There is no man that hath left house, or parents, or brethren, or wife, or children, for the kingdom of God’s SdKC, 3o Who shall not receive manifold more in this present time, and in the world to come life everlasting. 31 || Then he took unto him the twelve, and said unto them, Bchold, we go up to Jerusalem, and all things that are written by the prophets concerning the Son of man shall be accomplished. 32 For he shall be delivered
