50 That the blood of all the prophets, which was shed from the foundation of the world, may be required of this genera
51 From the blood of Abel, unto the blood of Zacharias, which perished between the altar and the temple: verily I say unto you, It shall be required of this generation.
52 Woe unto you, lawyers! for ye have taken away the key of knowledge: ye entered not in yourselves, and them that were entering in, ye hindered.
53 And as he said these things unto them, the scribes and the Pharisees began to urge bim vehemently, and to provoke him to speak of many things;
54 Laying wait for him, and seeking to catch something out of his mouth, that they might accuse him.
COVETOUSNESS TO BE
IN the mean time, when there were gathered together an innumerable multitude of people,insomuch that they trode one upon another, he began to say to his disciples first of all, Beware ye of the leaven of the Pharisees, which is hypocrisy.
2 For there is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed; neither hid, that shall not be known.
|| 3 Therefore, whatsoever ye have spoken in darkness, shall be heard in the light; and that which ye have spoken in the ear, in closets, shall be proclaimed upon the house-tops. 4 And I say unto you, my friends, Be not afraid of them that kill the body, and after that have no more that they can do:
5 But I will forewarn you whom ye shall fear: Fear him, which after he hath killed, hath power to cast into hell; yea, I say unto you, Fear him.
6 Are not five sparrows sold for two farthings? and not one of them is forgotten before God.
7 But even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear not, therefore; ye are of more value than many spar
8 Also I say unto you, Whosoever shall confess me before men, him shall the Son of man also confess before the angels of God:
9 But he that denieth me before men, shall be denied before the angels of God.
10 And whosoever shall speak a word against the Son of man, it shall be forgiven him: but unto him that blasphemeth against the Holy Ghost, it shall not be forgiven.
11 And when they bring you unto the synagogues, and unto magistrates, and powers, take
ye no thought, how, or what || treasure for himself, and is not
12 For the Holy Ghost shall teach you in the same hour, what ye ought to say.
22 And he said unto his disciples, Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat; neither for the body, what ye shall put on.
13 And one of the company said unto him, Master, speak to my brother, that he divide the inheritance with me.
23 The life is more than meat, and the body is more than raiment.
24 Consider the ravens : for they neither sow nor reap; which neither have store-house nor barn; and God feedeth them: how much more are ye better than the fowls?
14 And he said unto him, Man, who made me a judge, or a divider over you?
15 And he said unto them, Take heed, and beware of covetousness for a man's life consisteth not in the abundance of the things which he possesseth.
16 And he spake a parable unto them, saying, The ground of a certain rich man brought forth plentifully :
17 And he thought within himself, saying, What shall I do, because I have no room where to bestow my fruits? 18 And he said, This will I do: I will pull down my barns, and build greater and there will I bestow all my fruits, and my goods.
19 And I will say to my soul, Soul, thou hast much goods laid up for many years: take thine ease, eat, drink, and be merry. 20 But God said unto him, Thou fool! this night thy soul shall be required of thee; then, whose shall those things be, which thou hast provided? 21 So is he that layeth up
eth that ye have need of these things.
31 But rather seek ye the kingdom of God; and all these things shall be added unto you. 32 Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father's good pleasure to give you the kingdom.
33 Sell that ye have, and give alms; provide yourselves bags which wax not old, a treasure in the heavens that faileth not, where no thief approacheth, neither moth corrupteth.
34 For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.
35 Let your loins be girded about, and your lights burning;
36 And ye yourselves like unto men that wait for their lord, when he will return from the wedding; that, when he cometh, and knocketh, they may open unto him immedi ately.
37 Blessed are those servants, whom the lord, when he cometh, shall find watching: verily I say unto you, That he shall gird himself, and make them to sit down to meat, and will come forth, and serve them.
38 And if he shall come in the second watch, or come in the third watch, and find them so, blessed are those servants.
39 And this know, that if the goodman of the house had known what hour the thief
would come, he would have watched, and not have suffered his house to be broken through40 Be ye, therefore, ready also: for the Son of man com eth at an hour, when ye think not.
41 Then Peter said unto him, Lord, speakest thou this parable unto us, or even to all?
42 And the Lord said, Who then is that faithful and wise steward, whom his lord shall make ruler over his household, to give them their portion of meat in due season?
43 Blessed is that servant, whom his lord, when he cometh, shall find so doing.
44 Of a truth I say unto you, That he will make him ruler over all that he hath.
45 But, and if that servant say in his heart, My lord delayeth his coming; and shall begin to beat the men-servants and maidens, and to eat and drink, and to be drunken;
46 The lord of that servant will come, in a day when he looketh not for him, and at an hour when he is not aware, and will cut him in sunder, and will appoint him his portion with the unbelievers.
47 And that servant which knew his lord's will, and prepared not himself, neither did according to his will, shall be beaten with many stripes.
48 But he that knew not, and did commit things worthy of
stripes, shall be beaten with 57 Yea, and why even of yourfew stripes. For unto whomso-selves judge ye not what is ever much is given, of him shall be much required; and to whom men have committed much, of him they will ask the more. 49 I am come to send fire on the earth; and what will I, if|| be delivered from him; lest he it be already kindled? hale thee to the judge, and the judge deliver thee to the officer, and the officer cast thee into prison.
58 When thou goest with thine adversary to the magistrate, as thou art in the way, give diligence that thou mayest
50 But I have a baptism to be baptized with; and how am I straitened, till it be accomplished!
59 I tell thee, Thou shalt not depart thence till thou hast paid the very last mite.
51 Suppose ye, that I am come to give peace on earth? I tell you, Nay; but rather division: 52 For from henceforth there shall be five in one house divided, three against two, and two against three.
53 The father shall be divided against the son, and the son against the father; the mother against the daughter, and the daughter against the mother; the mother-in-law against her daughter-in-law, and the daughter-in-law against her motherin-law.
54 And he said also to the people, When ye see a cloud rise out of the west, straightway ye say, There cometh a shower; and so it is.
55 And when ye see the south wind blow, ye say, There will be heat; and it cometh to
56 Te hypocrites! ye can discern the face of the sky, and of the earth; but how is it, that ye do not discern this time?
THE CROOKED WOMAN HEALED.
THERE were present at that season, some that told him of the Galileans, whose blood Pilate had mingled with their sacrifices.
2 And Jesus, answering, said unto them, Suppose ye that these Galileans were sinners above all the Galileans, because they suffered such things?
3 I tell you, Nay; but except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish.
4 Or those eighteen upon whom the tower in Siloam fell, and slew them, think ye that they were sinners above all men that dwelt in Jerusalem?
5 I tell you, Nay; but except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish.
6 He spake also this parable;
A certain man had a fig-tree planted in his vineyard; and he came, and sought fruit thereon, and found none.
7 Then said he unto the dresser of his vineyard, Behold, these three years I come sceking fruit on this fig-tree, and find none cut it down; why cumbereth it the ground?
8 And he, answering, said unto him, Lord, let it alone this year also, till I shall dig about it, and dung it:
9 And if it bear fruit, well; and if not, then after that thou shalt cut it down.
10 And he was teaching in one of the synagogues on the sabbath.
11 And, behold, there was a woman, which had a spirit of infirmity eighteen years, and was bowed together, and could in no wise lift up herself.
12 And when Jesus saw her, he called her to him, and said unto her, Woman, thou art loosed from thine infirmity.
13 And he laid his hands on her; and immediately she was made straight, and glorified God.
14 And the ruler of the synagogue answered with indignation, because that Jesus had healed on the sabbath-day, and said unto the people, There are six days in which men ought to work in them, therefore, come and be healed, and not on the sabbath-day.
15 The Lord then answered him, and said, Thou hypocrite! doth not each one of you, on the sabbath, loose his ox or his ass from the stall, and lead him away to watering?
16 And ought not this woman, being a daughter of Abraham, whom Satan hath bound, lo, these eighteen years, be loosed from this bond on the sabbathday?
17 And when he had said these things, all his adversaries were ashamed: and all the people rejoiced for all the glorious things that were done by him.
18 Then said he, Unto what is the kingdom of God like? and whereunto shall I resemble it?
19 It is like a grain of mustardseed, which a man took, and cast into his garden: and it grew, and waxed a great tree; and the fowls of the air lodged in the branches of it.
20 And again he said, Whereunto shall I liken the kingdom of God?
21 It is like leaven, which a woman took, and hid in three measures of meal, till the whole was leavened.
22 And he went through the cities and villages, teaching, and journeying toward Jerusalem. 23 Then said one unto him, Lord, are there few that be saved? And he said unto them,
24 Strive to enter in at the
strait gate for many, I say
