Signs of Christ's coming. 35 Heaven i and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away. 36 ‘'s But k of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only. 37 But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. 38 For as in the days that were before the flood, they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until l the day that Noe entered into the ark, And knew not, until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. 40 Then shall two be in the field; ; One shall be taken and the other €I5.

41 Two woman shall be grinding at the mill; the one shall be taken, and the other left. 42 "I Watch m therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come. 43 But know this, that if the goodman of the house had known in what watch the thief would come, he would have watched, and would not have suffered his house to be broken up. .44 Therefore beye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not, the Son of man cometh. 45 Who then is a faithful and wise Servant, whom his lord hath made ruler over his household, n to give them meat in due season? 0 46 Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he cometh shall find so doing. 47 Verily I say unto you, that he shall make him ruler p over all his goods. 48 But and if that evil servant shall say in his heart, My lord delayeth his coming; 49 And shall begin to smite his fellow-servants, and to eat and drink with the drunken; 50 The lord of that servant shall come in a day q when he looketh not for him, and in an hour that he is not aware of; 51, And shall 3 cut him asunder, and appoint him his portion with the hypocrites: there r shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

But the wise took oil e in their vessels with their lamps. 5 While the bridegroom tarried, they all slumbered fand slept. 6 And at midnightg there was a cry h made, Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out i to meet him. 7 Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps. 8 And the foolish said unto the wise, Give us of your oil; for our lamps are 1 gone out.K. 9 But the wise answered, saying, Not so; lest there be not enough for us and you : but go ye rather l to them that sell, and buy for yourselves. 10 And while m they went to buy, the bridegroom came ; and they that were ready went in with him to the marriage : and the door was shut.n 11 Afterward came also the other virgins, saying, o Lord, Lord, open to us. 12 But he answered and said, Veri•ly I say unto you, Ip know you not. 13 Watch q therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh. 14 of For r the kingdom of heaven is as a man travelling into a far country, who called his own servants, and delivered unto them his goods. 15 And unto one he gave five 3 talents, to another two, and to another one ; to every man according to his several ability:s and straightway took his journey. 16. Then he that had received the five talents went and traded with the same and made them other five talents. 17 And likewise he that had received two, he also gained other two. 18 But he that had received one went and digged in the earth, and hid his lord's money. 19 After a long time,t the lord of those servants cometh, and reckoneth w with them. 20 And so he that had received five talents, came and brought other five talents, saying, Lord, thou deliveredst unto me five talents: behold, I have gained beside them five talents more. 21.

24 Then he which had received g

the one talent, came, and said, Lord, I knew thee that thou art an hard man, w reaping where thou hast not sown, a and gathering where thou hast not strawed: 25. And I was afraid, y and went and hid thy talent in the earth: lo, there thou hast that is thine. His lord answered and said unto him, Thou wicked z and slothful servant, thou knewest that I reap where I sowed not, and gather where I have not strawed: 27 Thou oughtest therefore to have put my money to the exchangers, and then at my coming Ishould have received mine own with usury, 28 Take therefore the talent from him, and give it unto him which hath ten talents. 29 For unto a every one that hath shall be given, and he shall have abundance: but from him that hath not shall be taken away b even that which he hath. 30 And cast ye the unprofitable servant into outer darkness; c there ; be weeping and gnashing of €62th. 31 *[When d the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit "go, the throne of his glory: And before e him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separatef them one from another, as a shepherd g divideth his sheep from the goats: And, he shall set the sheep on his, right hand, h but the goats on the left. 34 Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed i of my Father,k inherit the kingdom prepared m for you from the foundation of the world.

6 o Now when Jesus was in Bethany, in the house of Simon the

been sold for much, and given to the poor. 10. When Jesus understood it, he said unto them, Why trouble ye the woman's for she hath wrought a good work upon me. 11 For ye d have the poor always with you; but me eye have not always. 12 For in that she hath poured this Ointment on my body, she did it for my burial. 13 Verily I say unto you, wheresoever this gospel shall be preached in the whole world, there shall also this, that this woman hath done, be told for a memorial of her. 14"|Then one fosthe twelve, called. Judas Iscariot, went unto the chief priests, 15 And said unto them, What will ye give me, and I will deliver him unto }. And they covenanted g with him for thirty pieces of silver. 16 And from that time he sought opportunity to betray him. 17 of Now h the first day of the feast of unleavened bread the disciples came to Jesus, saying unto him, Where wilt thou that we prepare for thee to eat the passover? 18 And he said, Go into the city to such a man, and say unto him, The Master saith, My time is at hand ; I will keep the passover at thy house with my disciples.

ió And the disciples did as Jesus!”

had appointed them; and they made ready the passover. 20 Now when the even was come, he sat down with the twelve. 21 And as they did eat, he said, Verily I say unto you, that one of you shall betray me. 22 And they were exceeding sorrowful,and began every one of them to say unto him, Lord, is it J 23 And he answered and said, Hei that dippeth his hand with me in the dish, the same shall betray me. 24. The Son of man goeth as it is written k of him : but wounto that man by whom the Son of man is betrayed it had been good for that man if he had not been born. 25 Then Judas, which betrayed him, answered and said, Master, is it I? He said unto him, Thou hast said. 26's And as l they were eating, Jesus took bread, and 1 blessed it, and brake it, and gave it to the disciples, and said, Take, eat; this is

But after I am risen again, p I will go before you into Galilee. 33 Peter answered and said unto him, Though all men shall be of. fended because of thee, yet will I never be offended. 34 Jesus said unto him, Verily I say unto thee, That this night, before the cock crow, thou shalt demy me thrice. 35 Peter said unto him, Though I should die with thee, yet will I not deny thee. Likewise also said all the disciples. 36 °. Then q cometh Jesus with them unto a place called Gethsemane, and saith unto the disciples, Sit ye here, while I go and pray “yonder. 37 And he took with him Peter and the two sons of Zebedee, and began to be sorrowful and very

Then saith he unto them, My r Soul is exceeding sorrowful, even unto death : tarry ye here, and watch with me. 39 And he went a little farther, and fell on his face, and s prayed, saying, O my Father, if it be possible, let this cup t pass from me: nevertheless u not as I will, but as thou wilt. 40 And he cometh unto the disciples, and findeth them asleep, and saith unto Peter, What, could ye not watch with me one hour ! 41 Watch, v and pray, that ye w enter not into temptation; a the Spirit y indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak. 42 He went away again the se

Then said Jesus unto him, Put up again thy sword into his place; fore all they that take the sword shall perish with the sword. 53 Thinkest thou that I cannot now pray to my Father, and he shall presently give me more than twelve legions off angels? 54 But how then shall the scriptures be fulfilled, that 9 thus it must be { 55 In that same hour said Jesus to the multitudes, Are ye come out, as against a thief with swords and staves for to take me?

But he denied before them all, saying, I know not what thousayest. 71 And when he was gone out into the porch, another maid saw him, and said unto them that were there, This fellow was also with Jesus of Nazareth. 72 And again he denied with an oath, I do not know the man. 73 And after a while came unto him they that stood by, and said to Peter, Surely thou also art one of them ; for thy speech bewrayeth

7 And they took counsel, and bought with them the potter's field, to bury strangers in. 8 Wherefore that field was called, The field of Blood, unto this day. 9 (Then was fulfilled that which was spoken e by Jeremy the prophet, saying, And they took the thirty pieces of silver, the price of him that was valued, 1 whom they of the children of Israel did value; 10 And gave them for the potter's field, as the Lord appointed me.) 11 And Jesus stood before the governor; and the governor asked him, saying, Art thou the king of the Jews? And Jesus said unto him, Thou sayest. And when he was accused of the chief priests and elders, he amswered frothing. 13 Then said Pilate unto him, Hearest thou not how many things they witness against thee : 14 And he answered him to never a word; insomuch that the governor marvelled greatly. 15 Now g at that feast the governor was wont to release unto the people a prisoner, whom they would. 16 And they had then a notable prisoner, called Barabbas. 17 Therefore when they were gathered together, Pilate said unto them, Whom will ye that I release unto you, Barabbas, or Jesus which is called Christ? 18 For he knew that for envy h they had delivered him. 19 °s When he was set down on the judgment-seat, his wife sent unto him, saying, Have thou nothing to do with that i just man: for I have suffered manythings this day in a dream because of him. 20 But the chief priests and elders persuaded the multitude that they should ask k Barabbas, and destroy Jesus. 21 The governor answered and said unto them, Whether of the twain will ye that I release unto you?...They said Barabbas. 22 Pilate saith unto them, What shall I do then with Jesus which is called Christ 3 They all say unto him, let him be crucified.
