answering the mother of Zebedee's children teacheth his disciples to
be lowly : 30 and giveih tuo blind men their sight.

FOR the kingdom of heaven is like unto a
man that is an housholder, which went out early
in the morning to hire labourers into his vine-

3 And he went out about the third hour, and saw others standing idle in the market-place,

and found others standing idle, and saith unto
them, Why stand ye here all the day 'idle ?
