Christ endeth his Sermon.

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

16 Ye shall know them by their o fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?

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

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

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

20. Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.

21 of Not every one that saith un- s

to me, Lord, Lord, r shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. 22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied s in thy name 1 and in thy name have cast out devils 1 and in thy name done many wonderful works! 23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you : depart from me t ye that work iniquity. 24 *|| Therefore w whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise v man, which built his house upon a

rock : * 25 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house ; and it fell not : for it was founded upon a rock.w 26 And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, not, shall be likened unto a foolish a man, which built his house upon the sand : 27 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, y and beat, upon that house ; and it fell ; and great was 2 the fall of it. w 28 And it came to pass, when Jesus had ended these sayings, the people were astonished a at his doctrine : 29, For he taught them as one having authority, and not as the

scribes.

and worshipped him, saying, Lord, if thou wilt, thou canst make me clean. 3 And Jesus put forth his hand, and touched him, saying, I will; be thou clean. And immediately his leprosy was cleansed. 4 And Jesus saith unto him, See thou tell b no man; but go thy way, show thyself to the priest, and offer the gift that Moses commanded, c for a testimony unto them. 5 *|| And when Jesus was entered into Capernaum, there came unto him a centurion, d beseeching him, 6 And saying, Lord, my servant lieth at home sick of the palsy, grieviously tormented. 7 And Jesus saith unto him, I will come and heal him. 8 The centurion answered and said, Lord, I am not worthy e that thou shouldest come under my roof: but speak the word only, f and my servant shall be healed. 9 For I am a man under authority, having soldiers under me : and I say to this man, Go, and he goeth; and to another, Come, and he Cometh; and to my servant, Do this, and he doeth it. 10. When Jesus heard it, he marvelled, and said to them that followed, Verily I say unto you, I have not found so great faith, g no, not in Israel. 11 And I say unto you, That h many shall come from the east and west, and shall sit down with Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, in the kingdom of heaven. , 12 But the children of the king. dom i shall be cast out into outer darkness: there shall be weeping k and gnashing of teeth. 13 And Jesus said unto the centurion, Go thy way; and as thou hast believed, so be it done unto thee. And his servant was healed in the self-same hour. 14 *| And when Jesus was come into Peter's house, he saw his wife's mother laid, l and sick of a fever. 15 And he touched her hand, and the fever left her : and she arose, and ministered unto them. 16's When the even was come, they brought unto him many m that were possessed with devils; and he cast out the spirits with his word, and healed all that were sick: 17 That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Esaias n the prophet, saying, Himself took our infirmiies, and bare our sicknesses. 18.

Christ cureth the palsy

. . CHAPTER IX. 1 Christ cureth the palsy, 9 calleth Matthew, 10 eateth with publicans and Sinners. A. he entered into a ship, and passed over, and came into his own city. 2 And, a behold, they brought to him a man sick of the palsy, lying on a bed : and Jesus seeing their faith, said unto the sick of the palsy, Son, b be of good cheer; thy sins be forgiven thee. 3 And, behold, certain of the scribes said within themselves, This man blasphemeth. 4 And Jesus knowi their thoughts, c said, Wherefore think ye evil in your hearts : 5. For whether is easier, to say, Thy sins be forgiven thee; or to Say, Arise, and walk? 6 But that ye may know that the Son of man hath power on earth to forgived sins, (then saith he to the sick of the palsy,) Arise, take up thy bed, and go unto thine house. 7 And he arose, and departed to his house. 8 But when the multitude saw it, they marvelled, and glorifiede God, which had given such power unto

And he arose, and followed him. 10 *| And it came to pass, as Jesus sat at meat in the house, behold, many publicans and sinners came and sat down with him and his disciples. 11 And when the Pharisees saw it, they said unto his disciples, Why eateth your Master with publicans and sinners ? g 12. But when Jesus heard that, he said unto them, They that be whole need not a physician, but they that are sick. 13 But go ye and learn what that meaneth, Ih will have mercy, and not sacrifice : for I am not come to Call the righteous, but sinners to repentance. ? 14"| Then came to him the disciples of John, saying, Why do we and the Pharisees fast oft, but thy disciples fast not 1 15 And Jesus said unto them, Can the children of the bride-chamber mourn, as long as the bridegroom k is with them? but the days will come, when the bridegroom shall be taken from them, and then shalll they fast. 16 Noman putteth a piece of 1 new Christ raiseth Jairus.

If I may but touch his garment, q I shall be whole. 22 But Jesus turned him about, and when he saw her, he said Daughter, be of good comfort; thy r faith hath made thee whole. And the woman was made whole from that hour.s 28 And t when Jesus came into the ruler's house, and saw the u minstrels and the people making a noise, 24 He said unto them, Give place: for the maid is not dead, v but, sleepeth. And they laughed him to SCOrn. 25 But when the people were put forth, w he went in, and took her by the hand, and the maid arose. 26 And 2 the same hereof went abroad into all that land. 27 of And when Jesus departed thence, two blind men followed him, crying, and saying, Thou Son of David, a have mercy on us. 28 And when he was come into the house, the blind men came to him : and Jesus saith unto them, Believe ye that I am able to do ; They said unto him, Yea,

Lord. 29. Then touched he their eyes, saying, According to your faith be it unto you. . . 30 And their eyes were opened; and Jesus straitly charged them, saying, See that no man know y it. 31 But they, when they were departed, spread abroad his fame in all that country. 32 of As they went out, behold, they brought to him a dumb man z

CHAPTER XI. 2 John sendeth his disciples to Christ. 7 The testimony of Christ concerning John. 20 Christ upbraideth the unthankfulness and impenitence of Chorazin, Bethsaida, and Capermaum, etc. ND it came to pass, when Jesus had made an end of commanding his twelve disciples, he departed thence, to teach and to preach in their cities. 2 Now a when John had heard in the prison the works of Christ, he sent two of his disciples, 3 And said unto him, Art thou he Christ's testimony. that should come, or do we look for another 7 4 Jesus answered and said unto them,60 and show John again those things which ye do hear and see : 5 The blind receive their sight, and the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed, and the deaf hear, the dead are raised up, and the poor have the gospel preached to them. 6 And shall not be offended b in me. 7 *s And as they departed, Jesus began to say unto the multitudes concerning John, What went c ye Out into the wilderness to see 1 a reed shaken with the wind? d 8 But what went ye out for to See ? a man clothed in soft raiment! Behold, they that wear soft clothtng are in king's houses.

t 9 But what went he out for to

see ? a prophet? yea, I say unto you, and more than a Po. 10 For this is he of whom it is e written, Behold, I send my messenger before thy face, which shall prepare thy way before thee. 11 Verily I say unto you, Among f them that are born of women there hath not risen a greater than John the Baptist : notwithstanding, he a that is least in the kingdom of heaven is greater than he. 12 And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven I suffereth violence, and the violent take h it by force. 13 For all the prophets and the law prophesied until John. - And if ye will receive it, this is Elias, which i was for to come. 15 He k that hath ears to hear, let him hear. 16 of Butl whereunto shall I liken this generation : It is like unto children sitting in the markets, and calling unto their fellows, 17 And saying, .We have piped unto you, and ye have not danced ; we have mourned unto you, and ye have not lamented. 18 For John came neither eating nor drinking, and they say, He m hath a devil. 19. The Son of man came eating m and drinking, and they say. Behold a man gluttonous, and a wine-bibber, a friend of Fo and sinners.

But when the Pharisees saw it, they said unto him, Behold, thy disciples do that which is not lawful to do c upon the sabbath-day. 3 But he said unto them, Have ye not read what David did d when he was an hungered, and they that were with him; 4 How he entered into the house of God, and did eat the show-bread, e which was not lawful for him to eat, neither for them which were with him, but only f for the priests? 5 Or have ye not read in the law,9 how that on the sabbath-days the priests in the temple h profane the sabbath, and are blameless? 6 But I say unto you, That in this place is one greateri than the tem.
