everlasting remembrance, Psal.cxii. 6. Verily I say unto you, Wheresoever this Gospel shall be preached throughout the whole world, this also that she hath done shall be spoken of for a memorial of her, Mark xiv. 9. For not he that commendeth himself is approved, but whom the Lord commendeth, 2 Cor. x. 18. For God is not unrighteous to forget your work and labour of love, which ye have shewed toward his name, in that ye and do have ministered to the saints, minister, Heb. vi. 10.

VER. 14.

Τότε πορευθεὶς εἷς τῶν δώδεκα, ὁ λεγόμενος Ιούδας Ισκαριώτης, πρὸς τοὺς ἀρχιερεῖς,

Then one of the twelve, called Judas Iscariot, went unto the Chief Priests,

And Judas Iscariot, one of the twelve, went unto the Chief Priests, to betray him unto them, Mark xiv.

10. Then entered Satan into Judas

surnamed Iscariot, being of the number of the twelve. And he went his way, and communed with the Chief Priests and captains, how he might betray him unto them. And they were glad, and covenanted to give him money. And he promised, and sought opportunity to convey him unto them in the absence of the multitude, Luke xxii. 3-6.

VER. 15.

Εἶπε· Τί θέλετέ μοι δοῦναι, καγὼ ὑμῖν παραδώσω αὐτόν; Οἱ δὲ ἔστησαν αὐτῷ τριάκοντα ἀργύρια.

And said unto them, a What will ye gipe me, and I will deliver him unto you? And they covenanted with him for thirty pieces of silver.


a But they that will be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and hurtful lusts, which drown men in destruction and perdition. For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows, 1 Tim. vi. 9, 10.

A. D. 33.

b And I said unto them, If ye think good, give me my price: and if not, forbear.

So they weighed for my price thirty pieces of silver. And the LORD said unto me, Cast it unto the potter: a goodly price that I was prized at of them. And I took the thirty pieces of silver, and cast them to the potter in the house of the LORD, Zech. xi. 12, 13.

VER. 16.

Καὶ ἀπὸ τότε ἐζήτει εὐκαιρίαν ἵνα αὐτὸν παραδᾷ.

And from that time a he sought opportunity to betray him.

a And when they heard it, they were glad, and promised to give him And he promoney, Mark xiv. 11. mised, and sought opportunity to betray him unto them in the absence of the multitude, Luke xxii. 6.

VER. 17.

John, saying, Go and prepare us the Passover, that we may eat. And they said unto him, Where wilt thou that we prepare? Luke xxii. 8, 9.

VER. 18.

Ὁ δὲ εἶπεν· Υπάγετε εἰς τὴν πόλιν πρὸς τὸν δεῖνα, καὶ εἴπατε αὐτῷ· Ὁ δι δάσκαλος λέγει· Ο καιρός μου ἐγγύς ἐστι, πρός σε ποιῶ τὸ πάσχα μετὰ τῶν ματ θητών μου.


And he said, Go into the city to such a man, and say uuto him, The Master saith, My time is at hand; I will keep the Passover at thy house with my disciples.

And wheresoever he shall go in, say ye to the good-man of the house, The master saith, Where is the guestchamber, where I shall eat the Passover with my disciples? And he will shew you a large upper room furnished and prepared: there make ready for us. And his disciples went forth, and came into the city, and found as he had said unto them: and they made ready the Passover, Mark xiv. 13-16. And he said unto them, Behold, when ye are entered into the city, there shall a man meet you, bearing a pitcher of water; follow him into the house where he entereth in. And ye shall say unto the good-man of the house, The Master saith unto thee, Where is the guestchamber, where I shall eat the Passover with my disciples? And he shall shew you a large upper room furnished: there make ready. And they went, and found as he had said unto them and they made ready the Passover, Luke xxii. 10-13.

VER. 19.

Καὶ ἐποίησαν οἱ μαθηταὶ ὡς συνέταξεν αὐτοῖς ὁ Ἰησοῦς, καὶ ἡτοίμασαν τὸ πάσχα. And a the disciples did as Jesus had appointed them; and they made ready the Passover.

a And the disciples went, and did

as Jesus commanded them, Matt. xxi. 6. His mother saith unto the servants, Whatsoever he saith unto you do it, John ii. 5.

VER. 20.

Οψίας δὲ γενομένης, ἀνέκειτο μετὰ τῶν δώδεκα.

Now a when the even was come, he sat down with the twelve.

And in the evening he cometh with the twelve. And as they sat and did eat, Jesus said, Verily I say unto you, One of you which eateth with me shall betray me, Mark xiv. 17, 18. And when the hour was come, he sat down, and the twelve apostles with him. And he said unto them, With desire I have desired

A. D. 33. to eat this Passover with you before I suffer: For I say unto you, I will not any more eat thereof, until it be fulfilled in the kingdom of God, Luke xxii. 14-16.

a For it was not an enemy that reproached me; then could I have borne it: neither was it he that hated me that did magnify himself against me; then I would have hid myself from him; But it was thou, a man mine equal, my guide, and mine acquaintance. We took sweet counsel together, and walked unto the house of God in company, Psal. Iv. 12-14. Jesus answered them, Have not I chosen you twelve, and one of you is a devil? He spake of Judas Iscariot the son of Simon: for he it was that should betray him, being one of the twelve, John vi. 70, 71. When Jesus had thus said, he was troubled in spirit, and testified, and said, Verily, verily, I say unto you, that one of you shall betray me, xiii. 21. See also on chap. ix. ver. 4. clause 1.

VER. 22.

αὐτῷ ἕκαστος αὐτῶν· Μήτι ἐγώ εἰμι, ΚύΚαὶ λυπούμενοι σφόδρα, ἤρξαντο λέγειν PLE;

and began every one of them to say unto And they were exceeding sorrowful, him, Lord, is it I?

a And they began to be sorrowful, and to say unto him one by one, Is it I? and another said, Is it I? And be answered and said unto them, It is one of the twelve, that dippeth with me in the dish, Mark xiv. 19, 20. And they began to inquire among themselves, which of them it was that should do this thing, Luke xxii. 23. Then the disciples looked one on another, doubting of whom he spake. Now there was leaning on Jesus' bosom one of his disciples, whom Jesus loved. Simon Peter therefore beckoned to him, that he should ask who it should be of whom he spake. He then lying on Jesus' breast saith un

VER. 23.

Ὁ δὲ ἀποκριθεὶς, εἶπεν· Ὁ ἐμβάψας μετ ̓ ἐμοῦ ἐν τῷ τρυβλίῳ τὴν χεῖρα, οὗτός με παραδώσει.

And he answered and said, a He that dippeth his hand with me in the dish, the same shall betray me.


Yea, mine own familiar friend, in whom I trusted, which did eat of my bread, hath lifted up his heel against me, Psal. xli. 9. But, behold, the hand of him that betrayeth me is with me on the table, Luke xxii. 21. I speak not of you all: I know whom I have chosen but that the Scripture may be fulfilled, He that eateth bread with me hath lifted up his heel against me, John xiii. 18. Jesus answered, He it is, to whom I shall give a sop, when I have dipped it. Ånd when he had dipped the sop, he it to Judas Iscariot, the son of Simon. And after the sop Satan entered into him. Then said Jesus unto him, That thou doest, do quickly. Now no man at the table knew for what intent he spake this unto him, 26–28.

VER. 24.



Ο μὲν υἱὸς τοῦ ἀνθρώπου ὑπάγει, καθὼς γέγραπται περὶ αὐτοῦ· οὐαὶ δὲ τῷ ἀνθρώπῳ ἐκείνῳ, δι ̓ οὗ ὁ υἱὸς τοῦ ἀνθρώπου παρα. δίδοται· καλὸν ἦν αὐτῷ, εἰ οὐκ ἐγεννήθη ὁ ἄνθρωπος ἐκεῖνος.

The Son of man goeth as it is written of him: b but woe unto that man by whom the Son of man is betrayed! it had been good for that man if he had not

been born.

a But how then shall the Scriptures be fulfilled, that thus it must be? ver. 54. But all this was done, that the Scriptures of the prophets might be fulfilled. Then all the disciples forsook him, and fled, 56. And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel, Gen. iii. 15. My God, My God, Why hast thou forsaken me? why art thou so far from helping me, and from the words of my roaring? O my God, I cry in the day-time, but thou hearest not, and in the night season, and am not silent. But thou art holy, O thou that inhabitest the praises of Israel,

and no man; a reproach of men, and despised of the people. All they that see me laugh me to scorn : they shoot out the lip, they shake the head, saying, He trusted on the LORD that he would deliver him: let him deliver him, seeing he delighted in him, 6-8. Many bulls have compassed me: strong bulls of Bashan have beset me round. They

gaped upon me with their mouths, as a ravening and a roaring lion. I am poured out like water, and all my bones are out of joint: my heart is like wax; it is melted in the midst of my bowels. My strength is dried up like a potsherd; and my tongue cleaveth to my jaws; and thou hast brought me into the dust of death. For dogs have compassed me: the assembly of the wicked have inclosed me: they pierced my hands and my feet. I may tell all my bones: they look and stare upon me. They part my garments among them, and cast lots upon my vesture. But be not thou far from me, O LORD: 0 my strength, haste thee to help me. Deliver my soul from the sword; my Save me from the hon's mouth: for darling from the power of the dog. thou hast heard me from the horns of the unicorns, 1921. The Lord Gop hath opened mine ear, and I was not rebellious, neither turned away back. I gave my back to the smiters, and my cheeks to them that plucked off the hair: I hid not my face from shame and spitting, Isa. 1. 5, 6. And after threescore and two weeks shall Messiah be cut off, but not for himself: and the people of the prince that shall come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary; and the end thereof shall be with a flood, and unto the end of the war desolations are determined, Dan. ix. 26. And I will pour upon the house of David, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the spirit of grace and of supplications: and they shall look upon me whom they have pierced, and they shall mourn for him, as one mourneth for his only son, and shall be in bitterness for him, as one that is in bitterness for his firstborn, Zech. xii. 10. Awake, O sword, against my shepherd, and against the man that is my

fellow, saith the LORD of hosts: smite the shepherd: and the sheep shall be scattered and I will turn mine hand upon the little ones, xiii. 7. And he answered and told them, Elias verily cometh first, and restoreth all things; and how it is written of the Son of man, that he must suffer many things, and be set at nought, Mark ix. 12. Then he said unto them, O fools, and slow of heart to believe all that the prophets have spoken. Ought not Christ to have suffered these things, and to enter into his glory? Luke xxiv. 25, 26. And said unto them, Thus it is written and thus it behoved Christ to suffer, and to rise from the dead the third day, 46. After this, Jesus knowing that all things were now accomplished, that the scripture might be fulfilled, saith, I thirst, John xix. 28. For these things were done, that the Scripture should be fulfilled, A bone of him shall not be broken. And again another Scripture saith, They shall look on him whom they pierced, 36, 37. For they that dwell at Jerusalem, and their rulers, because they knew him not, nor yet the voices of the prophets which are read every sabbath day, they have fulfilled them in condemning him. And though they found no cause of death in him, yet desired they Pilate that he should be slain. And when they had fulfilled all that was written of him, they took him down from the tree, and laid him in a sepulchre, Acts xiii. 27-29. And Paul, as his manner was, went in unto them, and three sabbath days reasoned with them out of the Scriptures, Opening and alledging, that Christ must needs have suffered, and risen again from the dead; and that this Jesus, whom I preach unto you, is Christ, xvii. 2, 3. Having therefore obtained help of God, I continue unto this day, witnessing both to small and great, saying none other things than those which the prophets and Moses did say should come: That Christ should suffer, and that he should be the first that should rise from the dead, and should shew light unto the people, and to the Gentiles, xxvi. 22, 23. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins ac

cording to the Scriptures, 1 Cor. xv. 3. Unto whom it was revealed, that not unto themselves, but unto us they did minister the things, which are now reported unto you, by them that have preached the Gospel unto you, 1 Pet. i. 12.

b Woe unto the world because of offences! for it must needs be that offences come; but woe to that man by whom the offence cometh! Matt. xviii. 7. Then Judas, which had betrayed him, when he saw that he was condemned, repented himself, and brought again the thirty pieces of silver to the Chief Priests and elders, Saying, I have sinned in that I have betrayed the innocent blood. And they said, What is that to us? see thou to that, xxvii. 3-5. Let death seize upon them, and let them go down quick into hell: for wickedness is in their dwellings, and among them, Psal. lv. 15. But thou, O God, shalt bring them down into the pit of destruction: bloody and deceitful men shall not live out half their days; but I will trust in thee, 23. Šet thou a wicked man over him: and let Satan stand at his right hand. When he shall be judged, let him be condemned: and let his prayer become sin. Let his days be few; and let another take his office. Let his children be fatherless, and his wife a widow. Let his children be continually vagabonds, and beg: let them seek their bread also out of their desolate places. Let the extortioner catch all that he hath; and let the strangers spoil his labour. Let there be none to extend mercy unto him: neither let there be any to favour his fatherless children. terity be cut off; and in the generation following let their name be blotted out. Let the iniquity of his fathers be remembered with the LORD; and let not the sin of his mother be blotted out. Let them be before the LORD continually, that he may cut off the memory of them from the earth, cix. 6-15. The Son of man indeed goeth, as it is written of him: but woe to that man by whom the Son of man is betrayed! good were it for that man if he had never been born, Mark xiv. 21. While I was with them in the world, I kept them in thy name :

those that thou gavest me I have kept, and none of them is lost, but the son of perdition; that the Scripture might be fulfilled, John xvii. 12. Men and brethren, this Scripture must needs have been fulfilled, which the Holy Ghost by the mouth of David spake before concerning Judas, which was guide to them that took Jesus. For he was numbered with us, and had obtained part of this ministry. Now this man purchased a field with the reward of his iniquity; and falling headlong, he burst asunder in the midst, and all his bowels gushed out. And it was known unto all the dwellers at Jerusalem; insomuch as that field is called in their proper tongue, Aceldama, that is to say, The field of blood. For it is written in the book of Psalms, Let his habitation be desolate, and let no man dwell therein and his bishoprick let another take, Acts i. 16-20. VER. 25.

̓Αποκριθεὶς δὲ Ἰούδας, ὁ παραδιδοὺς αὐτὸν, εἶπε· Μήτι ἐγώ εἰμι, Ραββί; Λέγει αὐτῷ, Σὺ εἶπας.

Then Judas, which betrayed him, answered and said, Master, is it I? He said unto him, Thou hast said.

VER. 26.

Εσθιόντων δὲ αὐτῶν, λαβὼν ὁ Ἰησοῦς τὸν ἄρτον, καὶ εὐλογήσας, ἔκλασε, καὶ ἐδίδου τοῖς μαθηταῖς, καὶ εἶπε· Λάβετε, φάγετε τοῦτό ἐστι τὸ σῶμά μου

And as they were eating, Jesus took bread, and blessed it, band brake it, and gave it to the disciples, and said, © Take, eat; this is my body.

a And as they did eat, Jesus took bread, and blessed, and brake it, and gave to them, and said, Take, eat: this is my body, Mark iv. 22. And he took bread, and gave thanks, and brake it, and gave unto them, saying, This is my body which is given for you this do in remembrance of me, Luke xxii. 19. For I have received of the Lord that which also I delivered unto you, That the Lord Jesus the same night in which he was betrayed took bread: And when he had given thanks, he brake it, and said, Take, eat: this is my body, which is broken for you: this do in remembrance of me. After the same manner also he took the cup, when he had supped, saying, This cup is the new

testament in my blood: this do ye, as oft as ye drink it, in remembrance of me, 1 Cor. xi. 23-25.

And they, continuing daily with one accord in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, did eat their bread with gladness and singleness of heart, Acts ii. 46. And upon the first day of the week, when the disciples came together to break bread, Paul preached unto them, ready to depart on the morrow; and continued his speech until midnight, xx. 7. The cup of blessing which we bless, is it not the communion of the blood of Christ? The bread which we break, is it not the communion of the body of Christ? 1 Cor. x. 16.

For the bread of God is he which cometh down from heaven, and giveth life unto the world. Then said they unto him, Lord, evermore give us this bread. And Jesus said unto them, I am the bread of life: he that cometh to me shall never hunger ; and he that believeth on me shall never thirst, John vi. 33-35. Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me hath everlasting life. I am that bread of life. Your fathers did eat manna in the wilderness, and are dead. This is the bread which cometh down from heaven, that a man may eat thereof, and not die. I am the living bread which came down from heaven if any man eat of this bread, he shall live for ever: and the bread that I will give is my flesh, which I will give for the life of the world. The Jews therefore strove among themselves, saying, How can this man give us his flesh to eat? Then Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except ye eat the flesh of the Son of man, and drink his blood, ye have no life in you. Whoso eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, hath eternal life; and I will raise him up at the last day. For my flesh is meat indeed, and my blood is drink indeed. He that eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, dwelleth in me, and I in him. As the living Father hath sent me, and I live by the Father; so he that eateth me, even he shall live by


This is that bread which came down from heaven: not as your fathers did eat manna, and are dead:
