Thefore they shall be your judges. 28 But if I cast out devils by the Spirit of God, then the kingdom s of God is come unto you. 29 Or else how can one enter into a strong man's house, and spoil t his goods, except he first bind the strong man? and then he will spoil his house. 30. He that is not with me, is against me: w and he that gathereth not with me, scattereth abroad. 31 "Is Wherefore I say unto you, All v manner of sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven unto men: but the blasphemy against the Holy Ghost w shall not be forgiven unto men. 32 And whosoever speaketh a word against the Son of man, a it shall be forgiven him: but whosoever speaketh against the Holy Ghost, it shall not be forgiven him, neither in this world, neither in the world to come. 33 Either make the tree good, and his fruit good; or else, make the tree corrupt, and his fruit corrupt; for y the tree is known by his fruit. 34 O generation 2 of vipers | how can ye, being evil, speak good things? For out a of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh. 35 A good man out of the good treasure of the heart bringeth forth good things: and an evil man, out of the evil treasure, bringeth forth evil things. 36 But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account b thereof in the day of judgment. 37 For by thy words c thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned. Then certain of the scribes and of the Pharisees answered, saying, Master, we would see a sign d from thee. 39 But he answered and said unto them, An evil and adulterous e generation seeketh after a sign ; and there shall no sign be given to it, but the sign of the prophet Jo

Even so shall it be also unto this wicked generation. 46 s While he yet talked to the §: behold, his o mother and his rethren p stood without, desiring to speak with him. 47 Then one said unto him, Behold, thy mother and thy brethren stand without, desiring to speak with thee. 48 But he answered and said unto him that told him, Who is my mother? and who are my brethren?
49 And he stretched forth his'
hand toward his disciples, and said, Behold mymother and my brethren! 50 For whosoever shall do the will g of my Father which is in heaven, the same is my brother, and sister, and mother. CHAPTER XIII. 3 Of the sower and the seed; with other parables. 12 Why Christ taught in parables.
of the house, and sat by the sea-side. 2 And great multitudes were gathered together unto him, so that he went into a ship, a and sat; and the whole multitude stood on the shore. 3 And he spake many things unto them in parables, saying, Behold, a Sower went forth to sow; when he sowed, some seeds fell by the way side, and the fowls came and devoured them up. 5 Some fell upon stony places, where they had not much earth : and forthwith they sprung up, because they had no deepness of

were scorched; and because they had not root they withered away. 7 And some fell among thorns; and the thorns sprung up, an choked them. 8 But others fell into good ground, and brought forth fruit, some an hundred-fold, some sixty-fold, some thirty-fold. 9 Who c hath ears to hear, let him hear. 10 And the disciples came, and said unto him, Why speakest thou unto them in parables 11 He answered and said unto them, Because it is given unto you to d know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it is not given. 12 For e whosoever hath, to him shall be given, and he shall have more abundance: but whosoever hath not, from him shall be taken away, even that he hath. w 13 Therefore speak I to them in parables: because they seeing See not; and hearing they hear Ilot, neither do they understand. 14 And in them is fulfilled the o of Esaias, f which saith yg hearing ye shall hear, an shall not understand; and seeing
ye shall see, and shall not perceive:
15 For this Pop. heart is waxed ross, and their ears are dull h of earing, and their eyes, they have closed; lest at any time they should see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and should understand with their heart, and should be converted, and I should heal them. 16 But i blessed are your eyes, for they see : and your ears, for they hear. 17 For verily I say unto you, That k many prophets and righteous men 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 hem
18 "I Hear l ye therefore the parable of the Sower. 19 When any one heareth the word m of the kingdom, and understandeth it not, then cometh the wicked n one, and catcheth, away that which was sown in his heart. This is he which received seed by the way side. .20 But he that received the seed into stony places, the same is he that heareth the word, and amon with joy o receiveth it; 21 Yet hath he not root in himself, but dureth for a while : for when tribulation or persecution ariseth because of the word, by and by he

22 He also that received seed among the thorns, is he that heareth the word; and the care g of this world, and the deceitfulness of riches, r choke the word, and he becometh unfruitful. 23 But he that received seed into the good ground, is he that heareth the word, and understandeth it : which also beareth fruit, s and bringeth forth, some an hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty. 24 T Another t parable put he forth unto them, saying, The kingdom of heaven is likened unto a man which sowed good u seed in his field : 25 But while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat, and went his way. 26 But when the blade was sprung up, and brought forth fruit, then appeared the tares also. 27 So the servants of the householder came and said unto him, Sir, didst not thou sow good seed in thy fields! from whence then hath it tares 7 28. He said unto them, An enemy hath done this. The servants said unto him, Wilt thou then that we go and gather them up 7 29 But he said, Nay; lest while ye gather up the tares, ye root up also the wheat with them
30 Let both grow together until
the harvest : and in the time of harvest v I will say to the reapers, Gather §: together first the tares, and bind them in bundles to w burn them : but gather the wheat a into
my barn. 31 *| Another parable put he forth unto them, saying, The kingdom of heaven is like to a y grain of mustard-seed, which a man took, and sowed in his field : 32 Which indeed is the least of all seeds: but when it is grown, it is the greatest among herbs, and becometh a tree, z so that the birds of the air come and lodge in the branches thereof.
33 *| Another É. spake he unto them; The kingdom of heaven is like unto leaven, which a woman took, and hid in three 1 measures of meal, till the whole was leaven
ed. 34 All these things spake Jesus unto the multitude in parables; a and without a parable spake he not unto them : 35 That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophét, b saying, I will open my mouth in parables; I will utter things which have been kept c secret from the foundation of the world.

seed, leaven, etc. 36 Then Jesus sent the multitude away, and went into the house : and his disciples came unto him, saying, Declare unto us the parable of the tares of the field. 37 He answered and said unto them, He that soweth the good seed is the Son of man ; 38 The field is the world; d the good seed are the children of the kingdom ; e but the tares are the
| children of the wicked fone ;
39 The enemy that sowed thom is the devil : the harvest is the end of the world; g and the reapers are the angels. h. 40 As therefore the tares are gathered and burned in the fire; i so shall it be in the end of this world. 41 The Son of man shall send forth his angels, and they shall gather out of his kingdom all 2 things that offend, and k them which do iniquity; 42 And l shall cast them into a furnace of fire : there m shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth. 43 Then shall the righteous shine n forth as the sun in the kingdom of their Father. Who hath ears to hear, let him hear. Ål is Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto treasure o hid in a field; the which when a man hath found, he hideth, and for joy thereof goeth and selleth p all that he hath, and buyeth q that field. 45's Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a merchantman, seeking o pearls: 46 Who, when he had found one r pearl of great price, went and sold all that he had, and bought it. 47 Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a net, that was Cast into the sea, and gathered s of every kind : 48 Which, when it was full, they drew to shore, and sat down, and gathered the good into vessels, but cast the bad away. 49 So shall it be at the end of the world : the angels shall come forth, and t sever the wicked from among the just • 50 And u shall cast them into the furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gmashing of teeth. 5i Jesus saith unto them, Have e understood all these things! 'hey say unto him, Yea, Lord: 52 Then said he unto , them, Therefore, every scribe which is instructed unto the kingdom of heaven, is like unto a man that is an householder, which bringeth forth out v of his treasure things new and old, w 53 "Is And it came to pass, that John Baptist beheaded. when Jesus had finished these pa. rables, he departed thence. 54 And a when he was come into his own country, he taught them in their synagogue, insomuch that they were astonished, and said, Whence hath this man this wisdom, and these mighty works 4 55 Is not this the carpenter's son? Is not his mother called Mary 1 and his brethren, James, and Joses, and Simon, and Judas 7 And his sisters, are they not all with us Whence then hath this man all these things? 57 And they were offended y in him. But Jesus said unto them, A prophet is not without honour, save in his own country, and in his own house. 58 And he did not many mighty works there, because of their un
belief. CHAPTER XIV. 1 Herod's opinion of Christ. 3 John Baptist beheaded. 15 Five thousand fed. T that time a Herod the teA trarch heard of the fame of Jesus, 2 And said unto his servants, This is John the Baptist ; he is risen from the dead; and therefore mighty works . I do show forth themselves in him. 3 *|| For Herod had laid hold on John, and bound him, and put him in prison for Herodias' sake, his brother Philip's wife. 4 For John said unto him, It b is not lawful for thee to have her. 5 And when he would have put him to death, he feared the multitude, because they counted him as C a prophet. 6 But when Herod's birthday was kept, the daughter of Herodias danced 2 before them, and pleased Herod. - 7. Whereupon he promised with an oath to give her whatsoever she would ask. 8 And she, being before instructed of her mother, said, Give me here John Baptist's d head in a charger. 9 And the king was sorry: e nevertheless for the oath's f sake, and them which sat with him at meat, he commanded it to be given her. 10 And he sent, and beheaded John in the prison. 11 And his head was brought in a charger, and given to the damsel: and she brought it to her mother. 12 And his disciples came, and took up the P. and buried g it, and went and told Jesus. * When Jesus heard of it, he h departed thence, o a ship into a

Christ walketh on the sea. desert place apart: and when the eople had heard thereof, they folowed him on foot out of the cities, 14 And Jesus went forth, and t saw a great multitude, and was moved with compassion k toward them, and he healed their sick. 15 of 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 victUlfilS. 16 But Jesus said unto them, They need not depart; give ye them to eat. 17 And they say unto him, We #. here but five loaves, and two €S. 18 He said, Bring them hither to
IIle. 19 And he commanded the multitude to sit down on the grass, and took the five loaves and the two fishes, aud, looking up to heaven, he blessed, and brake, and gave the loaves to his disciples, and the disciples to the multitude. 20 And they did all eat, and were filled : and they took up of the fragments that remained twelve baskets full.l 21 And they that had eaten were about five thousand men, beside women and children. 22 of And straightway Jesus constrained his disciples to get into a ship, and to go before him unto the other side, while he sent the multitudes away. 23 And when he had sent the multitudes away, he m went up into a mountain apart to pray: and when the evening was come, he was there alone. 24. But the ship was now in the midst of the sea, tossed with waves: for the wind was contrary. 25 And in the fourth watch of the night Jesus went unto them, walking on the sea. 26 And n when the disciples saw him walking on the sea, they were troubled, o saying, It is a spirit; and they cried out for fear. 27 But straightway Jesus spake unto them, saying, Bep of g cheer; it is I; be not afraid. 28, And Peter answered him and said, Lord, if it q be thou, bid me come unto thee on the water. 29 And he said, Come. And when Peter was come down out of the ship, he walked on the water, to go to Jesus. 30 But when he saw the wind 8 boisterous, he was afraid; and beginning to sink, he cried, saying Lord, save me.”
HEN a came to Jesus scribes and Pharisees, which were of Jerusalem, saying, 2. Why do thy disciples transgress the tradition of the elders? for they wash not their hands when they eat bread. 3 But he answered and said unto them, Why do you also transgress the commandment of God by your tradition ? b * 4 For God commanded, saying c Honourthy father and mother; and, He d that curseth father or mother, let him die the death. 5 But ye say, Whosoever shall say to his father or his mother. It is a gift, by whatsoever thou mightest be profited by me. 6 And honour not e his father or his mother, he shall be free. Thus have ye made the commandment of God of none effect by your tradition. 7 Ye hypocrites' well did Esaias prophesy of you, saying, . 8 This fpeople draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoureth me with their lips; but their heart is far from me. 9 But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines, g the cornmandments of men. 10 *s And he called the multitude, and said unto them, Hear, and understand : 11 Not h that which goeth into the mouth defileth a man; but that which cometh out of the mouth, this defileth a man. 12, Then came his disciples, and said unto him, Knowest thou that
Christ healeth the sick.
the Pharisees were offended, after they heard this saying 4 13 But he answered and said, Every plant i which my heavenly Father hath not planted, shall be rooted up. 14 Let them , alone : they k be blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch. 15 Then answered Peter and said unto him, Declare unto us this parable. 16 And Jesus said, Are ye also yet without understanding 7 17 Do not ye yet understand, that whatsoever entereth in at the mouth l goeth into the belly, and is cast out into the draught ! 18 But those things which proceed out of the mouth come forth from the heart; and they defile the man, 19 For m out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, formications, thefts, false witness, blasphemies: 20 These are the things which defile a man : but to eat with unwashen hands defileth not a man. 21 off Then m Jesus went thence, and departed into the coast of Tyre and Sidon. 22 And behold, a woman of Canaan came out of the same coasts, and cried unto him, saying, Have #. on me, O Lord, thou son of David lo my daughter is grieviously vexed with a devil. 23 But he answered her not a word, p And his disciples came and besought him, saying, Send her away ; for she crieth after us. 24 But he answered and said, q I am not sent but unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel. 25 Them came she and worship.med him, saying, Lord, help me ! 26 But he answered and said it is not meet to take the children's bread, and to cast it to dogs.r 27 And she said, Truth Lord; yet the dogs eat of the crumbs which fall from their masters’ table. 28 Then s Jesus answered and said unto her, O woman, great is thy faith: be t it unto thee even as thou wilt. And her daughter was made whole from that very u hour. 29 And v Jesus departed from thence, and came nigh unto the sea of Galilee; and went up into a mountain, and sat down there. d great multitudes came unto him, having with them those that were lame, blind, dumb, maimed, and many others, and cast them down at Jesus’ feet; and he healed them : w 31 Insomuch that the multitude
