The Reverent Bible Edition of the KJV New Testament

With Catholic Commentary and Footnotes

WHY put a modern language KJV BIBLE on a Catholic website?  For a number of reasons; millions of converts to the Catholic Church were raised on the KJV Bible and they love the lofty language of the KJV. We have been urged to initiate this project. THE MAIN PROBLEM WITH THE KJV BIBLE IS THAT IT IS MISSING 7 BOOKS OF THE OLD TESTAMENT.  WE WILL INCLUDE THOSE 7 BOOKS WHICH WERE IN THE ORIGINAL KJV BIBLE. They were in the KJV for more than 200 years before being removed by most protestant denominations. The guiding principle for this reverent edition is to make it so readable, that we will read it constantly and that our children will read it daily as well. It was designed to be a politically incorrect version for young people, that is for all young people under the age of 130. We have also discovered that Protestant Bibles are better to use to explain Catholic doctrines and traditions to many Protestants because there are many who trust the accuracy of their Bibles over Catholic Bibles. We can explain every Catholic doctrine using the KJV Bible and even traditions like the Brown Scapular. We will continue our custom of capitalizing every pronoun and many nouns referring to Christ and decapitalizing the names of all devils including the apostle judas who chose to become a devil.  The editor believes that although it is absolutely certain that judas lost his soul from the Scriptures, ie. John 17:12 and other places; judas is probably roaming the earth now, functioning as the patron devil of anti-life and anti-family polliticians  (extra l as in pollution).  But he will soon return to hell and remain there forever.  FINALLY we chose to follow the Greek and use the words "Amen" rather than "verily;" "denarius" rather than "penny" and "stadia" rather than "furlong," and "Jacob" rather than "James," (Yacob in Greek and Hebrew as neither language has a "J.") , We also use numbers instead of words; 12 not twelve. It makes for easier reading. Check out some of the Catholic notes: The Eucharist: John 6 and 1st Cor 11; Purgatory: 1 Cor 3; Confession: John 20.

MATTHEW 1 The Reverent Bible Edition of the KJV Bible

The book of the generation of Jesus Christ, the Son of David, the son of Abraham. Abraham begot Isaac; and Isaac begot Jacob; and Jacob begot Judas and his brethren; 3  And Judas begot Phares and Zara of Thamar; and Phares begot Esrom; and Esrom begot Aram; 4   And Aram begot Aminadab; and Aminadab begot Naasson; and Naasson begot Salmon; 5   And Salmon begot Booz of Rachab; and Booz begot Obed of Ruth; and Obed begot Jesse; 6   And Jesse begot David the king; and David the king begot Solomon of her that had been the wife of Urias; 7   And Solomon begot Roboam; and Roboam begot Abia; and Abia begot Asa; 8  And Asa begot Josaphat; and Josaphat begot Joram; and Joram begot Ozias; And Ozias begot Joatham; and Joatham begot Achaz; and Achaz begot Ezekias; 10  And Ezekias begot Manasses; and Manasses begot Amon; and Amon begot Josias; 11  And Josias begot Jechonias and his brethren, about the time they were carried away to Babylon: 12  And after they were brought to Babylon, Jechonias begot Salathiel; and Salathiel begot Zorobabel; 13  And Zorobabel begot Abiud; and Abiud begot Eliakim; and Eliakim begot Azor; 14  And Azor begot Sadoc; and Sadoc begot Achim; and Achim begot Eliud; 15  And Eliud begot Eleazar; and Eleazar begot Matthan; and Matthan begot Jacob; 16  And Jacob begot Joseph the husband of Mary, of whom was born Jesus, Who is called Christ. 17  So all the generations from Abraham to David are 14 generations; and from David until the carrying away into Babylon are 14 generations; and from the carrying away into Babylon unto Christ are 14 generations. 18  Now the birth of Jesus Christ was on this wise: When as His Mother Mary was espoused to Joseph, before they came together, She was found with Child of the Holy Spirit. 19  Then Joseph Her husband, being a just man, and not willing to make Her a public example, was minded to put Her away privily. 20  But while he thought on these things, behold, the Angel of the Lord appeared unto him in a dream, saying, Joseph, son of David, fear not to take unto you Mary your wife: for That Which is conceived in Her is of the Holy Spirit. 21  And She shall bring forth a Son, and you shall call His Name Jesus: for He shall save His people from their sins. 22  Now all this was done, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the Prophet, saying, 23  Behold, a Virgin shall be with Child, and shall bring forth a Son, and they shall call His Name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us. 24  Then Joseph being raised from sleep did as the Angel of the Lord had bidden him, and took unto him his wife: 25  And knew Her not till She had brought forth Her Firstborn Son: and he called His Name Jesus.

The best Catholic Book written by a Protestant Minister: Strong's Exhaustive Bible Concordance:

http://www.BibleStudyTools.com/concordances/strongs-exhaustive-concordance/

is the best tool to explain how the Jews used words.  Look at Psalm 110 and other examples listed in the concordance and see how the word till is used by the Jews and you will see that we can not validly claim that Joseph knew Mary and had other children after Jesus was born.  While you are at it, notice that the Jews used the word brother to mean cousin or simply someone from the same home town as demonstrated in the usage of the word brother and verified in the Greek and Hebrew dictionaries. 


MATTHEW 2  The Reverent Bible Edition of the KJV Bible

Now when Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judaea in the days of Herod the king, behold, there came wise men from the east to Jerusalem, 2  Saying, Where is He Who is born King of the Jews? For we have seen His star in the east, and have come to worship Him. 3 When Herod the king had heard these things, he was troubled, and all Jerusalem with him. 4 And when he had gathered all the chief priests and scribes of the people together, he demanded of them where Christ should be born. 5  And they said unto him, In Bethlehem of Judaea: for thus it is written by the Prophet, 6  And you Bethlehem, in the land of Judah, are not the least among the princes of Judah: for out of you shall come a Governor, Who shall rule My people Israel. 7  Then Herod, when he had privily called the wise men, enquired of them diligently what time the star appeared. 8 And he sent them to Bethlehem, and said, Go and search diligently for the young Child; and when you have found Him, bring me word again, that I may come and worship Him also. 9  When they had heard the king, they departed; and, lo, the star, which they saw in the east, went before them, till it came and stood over where the young Child was. 10 When they saw the star, they rejoiced with exceeding great joy. 11 And when they had come into the house, they saw the young Child with Mary His Mother, and fell down, and worshipped Him: and when they had opened their treasures, they presented unto Him gifts; gold, and frankincense and myrrh. 12 And being warned of God in a dream that they should not return to Herod, they departed into their own country another way. 13 And when they had departed, behold, the Angel of the Lord appeared to Joseph in a dream, saying, Arise, and take the young Child and His Mother, and flee into Egypt, and be there until I bring you word: for Herod will seek the young Child to destroy Him. 14 When he arose, he took the young Child and His Mother by night, and departed into Egypt: 15 And was there until the death of Herod: that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the Prophet, saying, Out of Egypt have I called My Son. 16 Then Herod, when he saw that he had been mocked of the wise men, was exceeding wroth, and sent forth, and slew all the children that were in Bethlehem, and in all the coasts thereof, from 2 years old and under, according to the time which he had diligently inquired of the wise men. 17 Then was fulfilled that which was spoken by Jeremiah the Prophet, saying,  18  In Rama was there a voice heard, lamentation, and weeping, and great mourning, Rachel weeping for her children, and would not be comforted, because they are not. 19 But when Herod was dead, behold, an Angel of the Lord appeared in a dream to Joseph in Egypt, 20 Saying, Arise, and take the young Child and His Mother, and go into the land of Israel: for they are dead which sought the young Child's life. 21 And he arose, and took the young Child and His Mother, and came into the land of Israel. 22 But when he heard that Archelaus reigned in Judaea in the room of his father Herod, he was afraid to go there; notwithstanding, being warned of God in a dream, he turned aside into the parts of Galilee: 23 And he came and dwelt in a city called Nazareth: that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the Prophets, He shall be called a Nazarene.

MATTHEW 3 The Reverent Bible Edition of the KJV Bible

In those days came John the Baptist, preaching in the wilderness of Judaea,  2   And saying, Repent, for the Kingdom of Heaven is at hand. 3  For this is He that was spoken of by the Prophet Isaiah, saying, The voice of one crying in the wilderness, Prepare the way of the Lord, make His paths straight. 4  And John had his raiment of camel's hair, and a leathern girdle about his loins; and his meat was locusts and wild honey. 5 Then went out to him Jerusalem, and all Judaea, and all the region round about Jordan, 6 And were baptized of him in Jordan, confessing their sins. 7  But when he saw many of the Pharisees and Sadducees come to his baptism, he said unto them, O generation of vipers, who has warned you to flee from the Wrath to come? 8  Bring forth therefore fruits meet for repentance:  9  And think not to say within yourselves, We have Abraham for our father: for I say unto you, that God is able of these stones to raise up children unto Abraham. 10 And now also the axe is laid unto the root of the trees: therefore every tree that brings not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. 11 I indeed baptize you with water unto repentance. But, He Who comes after me is mightier than I, whose shoes I am not worthy to bear; He shall baptize you with the Holy Spirit, and with fire: 12 Whose fan is in His Hand, and He will thoroughly purge His floor, and gather His wheat into the garner; but He will burn up the chaff with unquenchable fire. 13 Then came Jesus from Galilee to Jordan unto John, to be baptized of him. 14 But John forbad Him, saying, I have need to be baptized of You, and You come to me? 15 And Jesus answering said unto him, Suffer it to be so now: for thus it becomes us to fulfill all righteousness. Then he suffered Him. 16 And Jesus, when He was baptized, went up straightway out of the water: and, lo, the heavens were opened unto Him, and He saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove, and lighting upon Him: 17 And lo a Voice from Heaven, saying, This is My Beloved Son, in Whom I am well pleased.

REPENTANCE IS THE ONLY STEP THAT DRAWS YOU CLOSER TO CHRIST.

MATTHEW 4 The Reverent Bible Edition of the KJV Bible

Then was Jesus led up of the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted of the devil. 2 And when He had fasted 40 days and 40 nights, He was afterward  hungry. 3  And when the tempter came to Him, he said, If You are the Son of God, command that these stones be made bread. 4  But He answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every Word that proceeds out of the Mouth of God. 5  Then the devil took Him up into the Holy City, and set Him on a pinnacle of the Temple, 6  And said unto Him, If You are the Son of God, cast Yourself down: for it is written, He shall give His Angels charge concerning You: and in their hands they shall bear You up, lest at any time You dash Your Foot against a stone. 7  Jesus said unto him, It is written again, You shall not tempt the Lord Your God. 8  Again, the devil took him up into an exceeding high mountain, and showed him all the kingdoms of the world, and the glory of them; 9 And said unto him, All these things will I give You, if You will fall down and worship me. 10  Then said Jesus unto him, Get you hence, satan: for it is written, You shall worship the Lord your God, and him only shall you serve. 11 Then the devil left Him, and, behold, Angels came and ministered unto Him. 12 Now when Jesus had heard that John was cast into prison, He departed into Galilee; 13  And leaving Nazareth, He came and dwelt in Capernaum, which is upon the sea coast, in the borders of Zebulon and Naphtali: 14 That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Isaiah the Prophet, saying, 15 The land of Zebulon, and the land of Naphtali, by the way of the sea, beyond Jordan, Galilee of the Gentiles; 16 The people, who sat in darkness saw great light; and to those who sat in the region and shadow of death light is sprung up. 17 From that time Jesus began to preach, and to say, Repent: for the Kingdom of Heaven is at hand. 18 And Jesus, walking by the sea of Galilee, saw 2 brethren, Simon called Peter, and Andrew his brother, casting a net into the sea: for they were fishers. 19 And he said unto them, Follow Me, and I will make you fishers of men. 20 And they straightway left their nets, and followed Him. 21 And going on from thence, He saw another 2 brethren, Jacob the son of Zebedee, and John his brother, in a ship with Zebedee their father, mending their nets; and He called them. 22  And they immediately left the ship and their father, and followed Him. 23 And Jesus went about all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the Gospel of the Kingdom, and healing all manner of sickness and all manner of disease among the people. 24 And His fame went throughout all Syria: and they brought unto Him all sick people that were taken with divers diseases and torments, and those which were possessed with devils, and those which were lunatic, and those that had the palsy; and He healed them. 25 And there followed him great multitudes of people from Galilee, and from Decapolis, and from Jerusalem, and from Judaea, and from beyond Jordan.

MATTHEW 5 The Reverent Bible Edition of the KJV Bible

And seeing the multitudes, He went up into a mountain; and when He had set, His disciples came unto Him; 2  And He opened His Mouth, and taught them, saying,

3 Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the Kingdom of Heaven.
(Grk "the Kingdom of the Heavens.")
4 Blessed are those who mourn: for they shall be comforted.
5 Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth.
6 Blessed are those who hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled.
7 Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy.
8 Blessed are the pure in heart; for they shall see God.
9 Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.
10 Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness' sake: for theirs is the Kingdom of Heaven.
11 Blessed are you, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for My sake.
12 Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the Prophets which were before you.

13 You are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savor, wherewith shall it be salted? It is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men. 14 You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hid. 15  Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it gives light unto all that are in the house. 16  Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father Who is in heaven. 17 Think not that I am come to destroy the Law, or the Prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfill. 18  For Amen I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled. 19 Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the Kingdom of Heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the Kingdom of Heaven. 20 For I say unto you, that unless your righteousness shall exceed the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, you shall in no case enter into the Kingdom of Heaven. 21 You have heard that it was said of them of old time, You shall not kill; and whosoever shall kill shall be in danger of the judgment; 22 But I say unto you, That whosoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment: and whosoever shall say to his brother, Raca, shall be in danger of the council: but whosoever shall say, You fool, shall be in danger of hell fire. 23 Therefore if you bring your gift to the altar, and there remember that your brother has ought against you; 24 Leave there your gift before the altar, and go your way; first be reconciled to your brother, and then come and offer your gift.

Another Purgatory Passage. The adversary is the devil accusing us before God to keep us out of heaven.  Purgatory isn't like an earthly prison where you get out early for good behavior. In Purgatory, you have to pay the last farthing. See also other Purgatory passages such as 1 Corinthians 3:10-15.See also the Purgatory page
on this website for many Scripture references

25 Agree with your adversary quickly, while you are in the way with him; lest at anytime the adversary deliver you to the judge, and the judge deliver you to the officer, and you be cast into prison. 26 Amen I say unto you, You shall by no means come out thence, till you have paid the uttermost farthing.

27 You have heard that it was said by them of old time, You shall not commit adultery: 28 But I say unto you,  that whosoever looks on a woman to lust after her has committed adultery with her already in his heart. 29 And if your right eye offends you, pluck it out, and cast it from you: for it is profitable for you that one of your members should perish, and not that your whole body should be cast into hell. 30 And if your right hand offends you, cut it off, and cast it from you: for it is profitable for you that one of your members should perish, and not that your whole body should be cast into hell. 31 It has been said, Whosoever shall put away his wife, let him give her a writing of divorcement: 32 But I say unto you, That whosoever shall put away his wife, saving for the cause of fornication, causes her to commit adultery: and whosoever shall marry her that is divorced commits adultery. 33 Again, you have heard that it has been said by them of old time, You shall not forswear yourself, but shall perform unto the Lord your oaths: 34 But I say unto you, Swear not at all; neither by heaven; for it is God's Throne: 35 Nor by the earth; for it is His Footstool: neither by Jerusalem; for it is the City of the Great King. 36 Neither shall you swear by your head, because you canst not make one hair white or black. 37 But let your communication be, Yea, yea; Nay, nay: for whatsoever is more than these comes of evil. 38 You have heard that it has been said, An eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth: 39 But I say unto you, That you resist not evil: but whosoever shall smite you on your right cheek, turn to him the other also. 40 And if any man will sue you at the law, and take away your coat, let him have your cloak also. 41 And whosoever shall compel you to go a mile, go with him 2.  42 Give to him who asks you, and from him who would borrow of you turn not you away. 43 You have heard that it has been said, You shall love your neighbor, and hate your enemy. 44 But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you; 45 That you may be the children of your Father Who is in heaven: for He makes His sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust. 46  For if you love them who love you, what reward have you?  Do not even the publicans the same? 47 And if you salute your brethren only, what do you more than others? Do not even the publicans so? 48 Be therefore perfect, even as your Father Who is in heaven is perfect.

MATTHEW 6 The Reverent Bible Edition of the KJV Bible

Take heed that you do not your alms before men, to be seen of them: otherwise you have no reward of your Father Who is in heaven. 2 Therefore when you do your alms, do not sound a trumpet before you, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, that they may have glory of men. Amen I say unto you, They have their reward. 3 But when you do alms, let not your left hand know what your right hand does: 4  That your alms may be in secret: and your Father Who sees in secret Himself shall reward you openly. 5 And when you pray, you shall not be as the hypocrites are: for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen of men. Amen I say unto you, They have their reward. But you, when you pray, enter into your closet, and when you have shut your door, pray to your Father Who is in secret; and your Father Who sees in secret shall reward you openly. 7  But when you pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking. 8  Be not you therefore like unto them: for your Father knows what things you have need of, before you ask Him.

 9  After this manner therefore pray:

Our Father Who is in Heaven, Hallowed be Your Name.  Grk. In the Heavens

10 Your Kingdom come, Your will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.

11 Give us this day our Daily Bread.  

12 And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.

13 And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil:

For Yours is the Kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever. Amen.

14 For if you forgive men their trespasses, your Heavenly Father will also forgive you: 15 But if you forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses. 16  Moreover when you fast, be not, as the hypocrites, of a sad countenance: for they disfigure their faces, that they may appear unto men to fast. Amen I say unto you, They have their reward. 17 But you, when you fast, anoint your head, and wash your face; 18 That you appear not unto men to fast, but unto your Father Who is in secret: and your Father, Who sees in secret, shall reward you openly. 19  Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust corrupts, and where thieves break through and steal: 20 But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust corrupts, and where thieves do not break through nor steal:  21 For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.  22 The light of the body is the eye: if therefore your eye be single, your whole body shall be full of light.  23 But if your eye be evil, your whole body shall be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in you be darkness, how great is that darkness! 24 No man can serve 2 masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon. 25 Therefore I say unto you,

Take no thought for your life, what you shall eat, or what you shall drink; nor yet for your body, what you shall put on. Is not the life more than food, and the body than raiment? 26 Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your Heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much better than they?

27 Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature? 28 And why take thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin: 29 And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. 30 Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which today is, and tomorrow is cast into the oven, shall He not much more clothe you, O you of little faith? 31 Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? Or, What shall we drink? Or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed? 32 (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your Heavenly Father knows that you have need of all these things. 33 But seek first the Kingdom of God, and His righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. 34 Take therefore no thought for tomorrow: for tomorrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.

MATTHEW 7 The Reverent Bible Edition of the KJV Bible

Judge not, that you be not judged. 2   For with what judgment you judge, you shall be judged: and with what measure you mete, it shall be measured to you again. 3   And why behold the mote that is in your brother's eye, but consider not the beam that is in your own eye?  4  Or how will you say to your brother, Let me pull out the mote out of your eye; and, behold, a beam is in your own eye? 5   You hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of your own eye; and then shall you see clearly to cast out the mote out of your brother's eye. 6   Give not that which is holy unto the dogs, neither cast you your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn again and rend you.  7  Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and you shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you; 8  For everyone that asks receives; and he that seeks finds; and to him that knocks it shall be opened.  9   Or what man is there of you, whom if his son ask bread, will he give him a stone?  10  Or if he ask a fish, will he give him a serpent? 11  If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children, how much more shall your Father Who is in Heaven give good things to those who ask Him?  12  Therefore all things whatsoever you would that men should do to you, do you even so to them: for this is the law and the prophets. 13  Enter in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leads to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat:  14 Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leads unto life, and few there be that find it.  15  Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.  16  You shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? 17  Even so every good tree brings forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree brings forth evil fruit.  18  A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.  19  Every tree that brings not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.  20  Wherefore by their fruits you shall know them. 21  Not everyone that says to Me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the Kingdom of Heaven; but he who does the will of My Father Who is in heaven. 22  Many will say to Me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your Name? And in Your Name have cast out devils? And in Your Name done many wonderful works? 23  And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from Me, you who work iniquity. 24  Therefore whosoever hears these sayings of Mine, and does them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock:  25  And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock. 26 And every one who hears these sayings of Mine, and does them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, who built his house upon the sand: 27  And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it. 28  And it came to pass, when Jesus had ended these sayings, the people were astonished at His doctrine: 29  For He taught them as one having authority, and not as the scribes.

MATTHEW 8 The Reverent Bible Edition of the KJV Bible

When He had come down from the mountain, great multitudes followed Him. 2  And, behold, there came a leper and worshipped Him, saying,

Lord, if You will, You can make me clean.

3 And Jesus put forth His Hand, and touched him, saying, I will; be clean. And immediately his leprosy was cleansed. 4 And Jesus said unto him, See you tell no man; but go your way, show yourself to the priest, and offer the gift that Moses commanded, for a testimony unto them. 5 And when Jesus was entered into Capernaum, there came unto Him a centurion, beseeching Him, 6   And saying, Lord, my servant lies at home sick of the palsy, grievously tormented. 7  And Jesus said unto him, I will come and heal him. 8 The centurion answered and said, Lord, I am not worthy that You should come under my roof: but speak the word only, and my servant shall be healed. 9  For I am a man under authority, having soldiers under me: and I say to this man, Go, and he goes; and to another, Come, and he comes; and to my servant, Do this, and he does it. 10 When Jesus heard it, he marveled, and said to them that followed, Amen I say unto you, I have not found so great faith, no, not in Israel. 11 And I say unto you, that many shall come from the east and west, and shall sit down with Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, in the Kingdom of Heaven. 12 But the children of the Kingdom shall be cast out into outer darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth. 13 And Jesus said unto the centurion, Go your way; and as you have believed, so be it done unto you. And his servant was healed in the selfsame hour. 14 And when Jesus had come into Peter's house, He saw his wife's mother laid, and sick of a fever. 15 And He touched her hand, and the fever left her: and she arose, and ministered unto them. 16 When evening had come, they brought unto Him many that were possessed with devils: and He cast out the spirits with His Word, and healed all who were sick; 17 That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Isaiah the Prophet, saying, Himself took our infirmities, and bare our sicknesses. 18 Now when Jesus saw great multitudes about Him, He gave commandment to depart unto the other side. 19 And a certain scribe came, and said unto Him, Master, I will follow You whithersoever you go. 20 And Jesus said unto him, The foxes have holes, and the birds of the air have nests; but the Son of Man has not where to lay His Head. 21 And another of His disciples said unto Him, Lord, suffer me first to go and bury my father. 22 But Jesus said unto him, Follow Me; and let the dead bury their dead. ED. He was looking for his inheritance.  23 And when He had entered into a ship, His disciples followed Him. 24 And, behold, there arose a great tempest in the sea, insomuch that the ship was covered with the waves: but He was asleep. 25 And His disciples came to Him, and awoke Him, saying, Lord, save us: we perish. 26 And He said unto them, Why are you fearful, O you of little faith? Then He arose, and rebuked the winds and the sea; and there was a great calm. 27 But the men marveled, saying, What manner of man is this, that even the winds and the sea obey Him! 28 And when He had come to the other side into the country of the Gergesenes, there met Him 2 possessed with devils, coming out of the tombs, exceeding fierce, so that no man might pass by that way.  29 And, behold, they cried out, saying, What have we to do with You, Jesus, You Son of God? Have You come hither to torment us before the time? 30 And there was a good way off from them an herd of many swine feeding. 31 So the devils besought Him, saying, If You cast us out, suffer us to go away into the herd of swine. 32 And He said unto them, Go. And when they were come out, they went into the herd of swine; and, behold, the whole herd of swine ran violently down a steep place into the sea, and perished in the waters. 33 And they that kept them fled, and went their ways into the city, and told everything, and what was befallen to the possessed of the devils. 34 And, behold, the whole city came out to meet Jesus: and when they saw Him, they besought Him that He would depart out of their coasts.

MATTHEW 9 The Reverent Bible Edition of the KJV Bible
And He entered into a ship, and passed over, and came into His own city. 2  And, behold, they brought to Him a man sick of the palsy, lying on a bed: and Jesus seeing their faith said unto the sick of the palsy; Son, be of good cheer; your sins be forgiven you. And, behold, certain of the scribes said within themselves, This Man blasphemes. 4 And Jesus knowing their thoughts said, Wherefore think evil in your hearts? 5 For whether is easier, to say, Your sins be forgiven you; or to say, Arise, and walk? 6 But that you may know that the Son of Man has power on earth to forgive sins, (then said He to the sick of the palsy,) Arise, take up your bed, and go unto your house. 7 And he arose, and departed to his house. 8 But when the multitudes saw it, they marveled, and glorified God, Who had given such power unto men. 9 And as Jesus passed forth from thence, He saw a man, named Matthew, sitting at the receipt of custom: and He said unto him, Follow Me. And he arose, and followed Him. 10 And it came to pass, as Jesus sat at meat in the house, behold, many publicans and sinners came and sat down with Him and His disciples. 11 And when the Pharisees saw it, they said unto His disciples, Why does your Master eat with publicans and sinners? 12 But when Jesus heard that, He said unto them, They that be whole need not a physician, but they that are sick. 13 But go and learn what that means, I will have Mercy, and not Sacrifice: for I am not come to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance. 14 Then came to Him the disciples of John, saying, Why do we and the Pharisees fast oft, but Your disciples fast not? 15 And Jesus said unto them, Can the children of the bride chamber mourn, as long as the Bridegroom is with them?  But the days will come, when the Bridegroom shall be taken from them, and then shall they fast.  16 No man puts a piece of new cloth unto an old garment, for that which is put in to fill it up takes from the garment, and the rent is made worse. 17 Neither do men put new wine into old wine skins: else the wine skins break, and the wine runs out, and the wine skins perish: but they put new wine into new wine skins, and both are preserved. 18 While He spoke these things unto them, behold, there came a certain ruler, and worshipped Him, saying, My daughter is even now dead: but come and lay Your Hand upon her, and she shall live. 19 And Jesus arose, and followed him, and so did His disciples. 20 And, behold, a woman, which was diseased with an issue of blood 12 years, came behind Him, and touched the hem of His garment; 21 For she said within herself, If I may but touch His garment, I shall be whole. 22 But Jesus turned about, and when He saw her, He said, Daughter, be of good comfort; your faith has made you whole. And the woman was made whole from that hour. 23 And when Jesus came into the ruler's house, and saw the minstrels and the people making a noise, 24 He said unto them, Give place: for the maid is not dead, but sleeps. And they laughed Him to scorn. 25 But when the people were put forth, He went in, and took her by the hand, and the maid arose. 26 And the fame hereof went abroad into all that land. 27 And when Jesus departed thence, 2 blind men followed Him, crying, and saying, You Son of David, have mercy on us. 28 And when He had come into the house, the blind men came to Him: and Jesus said unto them, Do you believe that I am able to do this? They said unto Him, Yes, Lord. 29 Then He touched  their eyes, saying, According to your faith be it unto you. 30 And their eyes were opened; and Jesus straitly charged them, saying, See that no man know it. 31 But they, when they were departed, spread abroad His fame in all that country. 32 As they went out, behold, they brought to Him a dumb man possessed with a devil. 33 And when the devil was cast out, the dumb spoke: and the multitudes marveled, saying, It was never so seen in Israel. 34 But the Pharisees said, He casts out devils through the prince of the devils. 35 And Jesus went about all the cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the Gospel of the Kingdom, and healing every sickness and every disease among the people. 36 But when He saw the multitudes, He was moved with compassion on them, because they fainted, and were scattered abroad, as sheep having no Shepherd. 37 Then said He unto His disciples, the harvest truly is plenteous, but the laborers are few; 38 Pray therefore the Lord of the harvest, that He will send forth laborers into His harvest.

MATTHEW 10 The Reverent Bible Edition of the KJV Bible

And when He had called unto Him His 12 disciples, He gave them power against unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to heal all manner of sickness and all manner of disease. 2  Now the names of the 12 apostles are these; The first, Simon, who is called Peter, and Andrew his brother; Jacob the son of Zebedee, and John his brother; 3  Philip, and Bartholomew; Thomas, and Matthew the publican; Jacob the son of Alphaeus, and Lebbaeus, whose surname was Thaddaeus; Simon the Canaanite, and judas iscariot, who also betrayed Him. 5 These 12 Jesus sent forth, and commanded them, saying, Go not into the way of the Gentiles, and into any city of the Samaritans enter not; 6 But go rather to the lost sheep of the House of Israel. 7 And as you go, preach, saying, The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand. 8  Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils: freely you have received, freely give. 9  Provide neither gold, nor silver, nor brass in your purses, 10  Nor scrip for your journey, neither 2 coats, neither shoes, nor yet staves: for the workman is worthy of his meat. 11  And into whatsoever city or town you shall enter, inquire who in it is worthy; and there abide till you go thence. 12  And when you come into a house, salute it. 13  And if the house be worthy, let your peace come upon it: but if it be not worthy, let your peace return to you. 14  And whosoever shall not receive you, nor hear your words, when you depart out of that house or city, shake off the dust of your feet. 15  Amen I say unto you, It shall be more tolerable for the land of Sodom and Gomorrha in the day of judgment, than for that city. 16  Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves: therefore be wise as serpents, and harmless as doves. 17  But beware of men: for they will deliver you up to the councils, and they will scourge you in their synagogues; 18  And you shall be brought before governors and kings for My sake, for a testimony against them and the Gentiles. 19  But when they deliver you up, take no thought how or what you shall speak: for it shall be given you in that same hour what you shall speak. 20  For it is not you who speak, but the Spirit of your Father Who speaks in you. 21  And the brother shall deliver up the brother to death, and the father the child: and the children shall rise up against their parents, and cause them to be put to death. 22  And you shall be hated of all men for My Name's sake: but he who endures to the end shall be saved.  23  But when they persecute you in this city, flee you into another: for Amen I say unto you, You shall not have gone over the cities of Israel, till the Son of Man has come. 24  The disciple is not above his master, nor the servant above his lord. 25  It is enough for the disciple that he be as his master, and the servant as his lord. If they have called the Master of the house Beelzebub, how much more shall they call them of his household? 26  Fear them not therefore: for there is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed; and hid, that shall not be known. 27  What I tell you in darkness, that speak in light: and what you hear in the ear, that preach upon the housetops. 28  And fear not those who kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear Him Who is able to destroy both soul and body in hell. 29  Are not 2 sparrows sold for a farthing? And one of them shall not fall on the ground without your Father. 30  But the very hairs of your head are all numbered. 31  Fear not therefore, you are of more value than many sparrows. 32  Whosoever therefore shall confess Me before men, him will I confess also before My Father Who is in heaven. 33  But whosoever shall deny Me before men, him will I also deny before My Father Who is in heaven.  34  Think not that I have come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword. 35  For I have come to set a man at variance against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter in law against her mother in law. 36  And a man's foes shall be those of his own household. 37  He who loves father or mother more than Me is not worthy of Me: and he who loves son or daughter more than Me is not worthy of Me. 38  And he who takes not his cross, and follows after Me, is not worthy of Me. 39  He who finds his life shall lose it: and he who loses his life for My sake shall find it. 40  He who receives you receives Me, and he who receives Me receives Him Who sent Me. 41  He who receives a prophet in the name of a prophet shall receive a prophet's reward; and he who receives a righteous man in the name of a righteous man shall receive a righteous man's reward. 42  And whosoever shall give to drink unto one of these little ones a cup of cold water only in the name of a disciple, Amen I say unto you, he shall in no wise lose his reward.

MATTHEW 11 The Reverent Bible Edition of the KJV Bible

And it came to pass, when Jesus had made an end of commanding His 12 disciples, He departed thence to teach and to preach in their cities. 2  Now when John had heard in prison the works of Christ, He sent 2 of his disciples, 3  And said unto Him, are You He Who should come, or do we look for another? 4  Jesus answered and said unto them, Go and show John again those things which you hear and see: 5  The blind receive their sight, and the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed, and the deaf hear, the dead are raised up, and the poor have the Gospel preached to them.  6  And blessed is he, whosoever shall not be offended in Me. 7  And as they departed, Jesus began to say unto the multitudes concerning John, What did you go out into the wilderness to see? A reed shaken with the wind?  8  But what went you out for to see? A man clothed in soft raiment? Behold, those who wear soft clothing are in kings' houses. 9  But what went you out for to see? A Prophet? Yes, I say unto you, and more than a Prophet. 10  For this is he, of whom it is written, Behold, I send My messenger before Your Face, Who shall prepare Your way before You. 11  Amen I say unto you, Among those who are born of women there has not risen a greater than John the Baptist: notwithstanding he who is least in the Kingdom of Heaven is greater than he. 12 And from the days of John the Baptist until now the Kingdom of Heaven suffers violence, and the violent take it by force. 13 For all the Prophets and the Law prophesied until John. 14 And if you will receive it, this is Elijah, who was to come. 15 He who has ears to hear, let him hear. 16 But whereunto shall I liken this generation? It is like unto children sitting in the markets, and calling unto their fellows, 17 And saying, We have piped unto you, and you have not danced; we have mourned to you, and you have not lamented. 18 For John came neither eating nor drinking, and they say, He has a devil. 19 The Son of man came eating and drinking, and they say, Behold a man gluttonous, and a winebibber, a friend of publicans and sinners. But wisdom is justified of her children. 20 Then began He to upbraid the cities wherein most of His Mighty Works were done, because they repented not; 21 Woe unto you, Chorazin! woe unto you, Bethsaida! for if the mighty works, which were done in you, had been done in Tyre and Sidon, they would have repented long ago in sackcloth and ashes. 22 But I say unto you, It shall be more tolerable for Tyre and Sidon at the Day of Judgment, than for you. 23 And you, Capernaum, which are exalted unto heaven, shall be brought down to hell: for if the mighty works, which have been done in you, had been done in Sodom, it would have remained until this day. 24 But I say unto you, That it shall be more tolerable for the land of Sodom in the Day of Judgment, than for you. 25 At that time Jesus answered and said, I thank You, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because You have hid these things from the wise and prudent, and have revealed them unto babes. 26 Even so, Father: for so it seemed good in Your Sight. 27 All things are delivered unto Me of My Father: and no man knows the Son, but the Father; neither knows any man the Father, save the Son, and he to whomsoever the Son will reveal Him.

28  Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
29  Take My yoke upon you, and learn of Me; for I am meek and lowly in heart:
and you shall find rest for your souls.  30  For My yoke is easy, and My burden is light.

MATTHEW 12 The Reverent Bible Edition of the KJV Bible

At that time Jesus went on the Sabbath Day through the corn; and His disciples were hungry, and began to pluck the ears of corn and to eat. 2  But when the Pharisees saw it, they said unto Him, Behold, Your disciples do that which is not lawful to do upon the Sabbath Day. 3  But He said unto them, Have you not read what David did, when he was hungry, and those who were with him; 4 How he entered into the House of God, and ate the showbread, which was not lawful for him to eat, neither for them which were with him, but only for the priests? 5   Or have you not read in the law, how that on the Sabbath Days the priests in the Temple profane the Sabbath, and are blameless? 6  But I say unto you, That in this place is One greater than the Temple. 7  But if you had known what this means, I will have Mercy, and not Sacrifice, you would not have condemned the guiltless. 8  For the Son of Man is Lord even of the Sabbath Day. 9  And when He had departed thence, He went into their synagogue: 10 And, behold, there was a man who had his hand withered. And they asked Him, saying, Is it lawful to heal on the Sabbath Days? that they might accuse Him. 11 And He said unto them, What man shall there be among you, that shall have one sheep, and if it fall into a pit on the Sabbath Day, will he not lay hold on it, and lift it out? 12  How much then is a man better than a sheep? Wherefore it is lawful to do well on the Sabbath Days. 13 Then said He to the man, Stretch forth your hand. And he stretched it forth; and it was restored whole, like as the other. 14  Then the Pharisees went out, and held a council against Him, how they might destroy Him. 15  But when Jesus knew it, He withdrew Himself from thence: and great multitudes followed Him, and He healed them all; 16  And charged them that they should not make Him known: 17  That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Isaiah the Prophet, saying, 18  Behold My Servant, Whom I have chosen; My Beloved, in Whom My Soul is well pleased: I will put My Spirit upon Him, and He shall show judgment to the Gentiles. 19  He shall not strive, nor cry; neither shall any man hear His Voice in the streets. 20  A bruised reed shall He not break, and smoking flax shall He not quench, till He send forth judgment unto victory. 21 And in His Name shall the Gentiles trust. 22 Then one possessed with a devil, blind, and dumb was brought unto Him and He healed him, insomuch that the blind and dumb both spoke and saw. 23 And all the people were amazed, and said, Is not This the Son of David? 24 But when the Pharisees heard it, they said, This fellow does not cast out devils, but by beelzebub the prince of the devils. 25 And Jesus knew their thoughts, and said unto them, Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and every city or house divided against itself shall not stand; 26  And if satan cast out satan, he is divided against himself; how shall then his kingdom stand? 27  And if I by beelzebub cast out devils, by whom do your children cast them out? Therefore they shall be your judges. 28  But if I cast out devils by the Spirit of God, then the Kingdom of God has come unto you. 29  Or else how can one enter into a strong man's house, and spoil his goods, unless he first bind the strong man? And then he will spoil his house. 30  He that is not with me is against me; and he that gathers not with me scatters abroad. 31 Wherefore I say unto you, All manner of sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven unto men: but the blasphemy against the Holy Spirit shall not be forgiven unto men. 32  And whosoever speaks a word against the Son of man, it shall be forgiven him; but whosoever speaks against the Holy Spirit, 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 the tree is known by his fruit. 34 O generation of vipers, how can you, being evil, speak good things? For out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks. 35  A good man out of the good treasure of the heart brings forth good things: and an evil man out of the evil treasure brings forth evil things. 36  But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the Day of Judgment. 37  For by your words you shall be justified, and by your words you shall be condemned. 38 Then certain of the scribes and of the Pharisees answered, saying, Master, we would see a sign from You. 39  But He answered and said unto them, An evil and adulterous generation seeks after a sign; and there shall no sign be given to it, but the sign of the Prophet Jonah; 40  For as Jonah was 3 days and 3 nights in the whale's belly; so shall the Son of man be 3 days and 3 nights in the heart of the earth. 41  The men of Nineveh shall rise in judgment with this generation, and shall condemn it: because they repented at the preaching of Jonah; and, behold, a greater than Jonah is here. 42  The queen of the south shall rise up in the judgment with this generation, and shall condemn it: for she came from the uttermost parts of the earth to hear the wisdom of Solomon; and, behold, a greater than Solomon is here. 43  When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walks through dry places, seeking rest, and finds none. 44  Then he said, I will return into my house from whence I came out; and when he is come, he finds it empty, swept, and garnished. 45  Then goes he, and takes with himself 7 other spirits more wicked than himself, and they enter in and dwell there: and the last state of that man is worse than the first. Even so shall it be also unto this wicked generation. 46  While He yet talked to the people, behold, His Mother and His brethren stood without, desiring to speak with Him. 47  Then one said unto Him, Behold, Your Mother and Your brethren stand without, desiring to speak with You. 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 My mother and my brethren! 50  For whosoever shall do the will of My Father Who is in heaven, the same is My brother, and sister, and mother.

MATTHEW 13 The Reverent Bible Edition of the KJV Bible

The same day went Jesus out of the house, and sat by the sea side. And great multitudes were gathered together unto Him, so that He went into a ship, and sat; and the whole multitude stood on the shore. 3 And He spoke many things unto them in parables, saying, Behold, a sower went forth to sow; 4  And 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 earth;  6  And when the sun was up, they were scorched; and because they had no root, they withered away. And some fell among thorns; and the thorns sprung up, and choked them; 8  But other fell into good ground, and brought forth fruit, some 100-fold, some 60-fold, some 30-fold. 9  Who has ears to hear, let him hear. 10  And the disciples came, and said unto Him, Why do You speak to them in parables? 11 He answered and said unto them, Because it is given unto you to know the Mysteries of the Kingdom of Heaven, but to them it is not given. 12  For whosoever has, to him shall be given, and he shall have more abundance: but whosoever has not, from him shall be taken away even that he has. 13 Therefore I speak to them in parables: because they seeing, see not; and hearing they hear not, neither do they understand. 14 And in them is fulfilled the prophecy of Isaiah, which said, By hearing you shall hear, and shall not understand; and seeing you shall see, and shall not perceive; 15  For this people's heart is waxed gross, and their ears are dull of hearing, 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 blessed are your eyes, for they see: and your ears, for they hear. 17  For Amen I say unto you, That many prophets and righteous men have desired to see those things which you see, and have not seen them; and to hear those things which you hear, and have not heard them. 18  Hear  therefore the parable of the sower. 19  When anyone hear the Word of the Kingdom, and understand it not, then the wicked one comes, and catches away that which was sown in his heart. This is he who received seed by the way side. 20  But he who received the seed into stony places, the same is he that hears the word, and anon with joy receives it; 21  Yet has he not root in himself, but endures for a while: for when tribulation or persecution arises because of the word, by and by he is offended. 22  He also that received seed among the thorns is he that hears the word; and the care of this world, and the deceitfulness of riches, choke the word, and he becomes unfruitful. 23  But he who received seed into the good ground is he who hears the word, and understands it; who also bears fruit, and brings forth, some 100-fold, some 60, some 30. 24 Another parable He put forth unto them, saying, The Kingdom of Heaven is likened unto a man who sowed good 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, did you not sow good seed in your field? From whence then has it tares?  28  He said unto them, An enemy has done this. The servants said unto him, Will you then that we go and gather them up? 29  But he said, Nay; lest while you gather up the tares, you root up also the wheat with them. 30  Let both grow together until the harvest: and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, Gather together first the tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them: but gather the wheat into my barn. 31 Another parable He put forth unto them, saying, The Kingdom of Heaven is like to a 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 becomes a tree, so that the birds of the air come and lodge in the branches thereof. 33  Another parable He spoke unto them; The Kingdom of Heaven is like unto leaven, which a woman took, and hid in 3 measures of meal, till the whole was leavened. 34  All these things spoke Jesus unto the multitude in parables; and without a parable, He spoke not unto them; 35  That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the Prophet, saying, I will open My Mouth in parables; I will utter things which have been kept secret from the foundation of the world. 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 who sows the good seed is the Son of Man; 38  The field is the world; the good seed are the children of the Kingdom; but the tares are the children of the wicked one; 39  The enemy that sowed them is the devil; the harvest is the end of the world; and the reapers are the Angels. 40  As therefore the tares are gathered and burned in the fire; 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 things that offend, and those who do iniquity; 42 And shall cast them into a furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth. 43  Then shall the righteous shine forth as the sun in the Kingdom of their Father. Who has ears to hear, let him hear. 44  Again, the Kingdom of Heaven is like unto treasure hid in a field; the which when a man has found, he hides, and for joy thereof goes and sells all that he has, and buys that field. 45  Again, the Kingdom of Heaven is like unto a merchant man, seeking goodly pearls: 46  Who, when he had found one 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 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 sever the wicked from among the just, 50  And shall cast them into the furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth. 51  Jesus said unto them, Have you understood all these things? They said unto Him, Yes, 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, who brings forth out of his treasure things new and old. 53  And it came to pass, that when Jesus had finished these parables, He departed thence. 54  And when He had come into His own country, He taught them in their synagogue, insomuch that they were astonished, and said, Whence has this Man this wisdom, and these mighty works? 55  Is not this the carpenter's Son? is not His Mother called Mary? and His brethren, Jacob, and Joses, and Simon, and Judas? 56  And His sisters, are they not all with us? Whence then has this man all these things? 57  And they were offended in Him. But Jesus said unto them, A Prophet is not without honor, save in his own country, and in his own house. 58 And He did not many mighty works there because of their unbelief.

MATTHEW 14 The Reverent Bible Edition of the KJV Bible

14 At that time Herod the tetrarch 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 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 is not lawful for you to have her. 5  And when he would have put him to death, he feared the multitude, because they counted him as a prophet. 6 But when Herod's birthday was kept, the daughter of Herodias danced before them, and pleased Herod. Whereupon he promised with an oath to give her whatsoever she would ask. And she, being before instructed of her mother, said, Give me here John Baptist's head in a charger. 9 And the king was sorry: nevertheless for the oath's 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 body, and buried it, and went and told Jesus. 13 When Jesus heard of it, He departed thence by ship into a desert place apart: and when the people had heard thereof, they followed Him on foot out of the cities. 14 And Jesus went forth, and saw a great multitude, and was moved with compassion toward them, and He healed their sick. 15 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 victuals. 16 But Jesus said unto them, They need not depart; you give them to eat. 17 And they said unto Him, We have here but 5 loaves, and 2 fishes. 18 He said, Bring them hither to Me. 19 And He commanded the multitude to sit down on the grass, and took the 5 loaves, and the 2 fishes, and looking up to heaven, He blessed, and broke, and gave the loaves to His disciples, and the disciples to the multitude. 20 And they all ate, and were filled: and they took up of the fragments that remained 12 baskets full. 21 And they that had eaten were about 5,000 men, beside women and children. 22 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 went up into a mountain apart to pray: and when the evening had 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 when the disciples saw Him walking on the sea, they were troubled, saying, It is a spirit; and they cried out for fear. 27 But straightway Jesus spoke unto them, saying, Be of good cheer; it is I; be not afraid. 28 And Peter answered Him and said, Lord, if it is You, bid me come to You 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 boisterous, he was afraid; and beginning to sink, he cried, saying, Lord, save me. 31 And immediately Jesus stretched forth His Hand, and caught him, and said unto him, O you of little faith, wherefore did you doubt? 32 And when they were come into the ship, the wind ceased. 33 Then they that were in the ship came and worshiped Him, saying, Of a truth You are the Son of God. 34 And when they were gone over, they came into the land of Gennesaret. 35 And when the men of that place had knowledge of Him, they sent out into all that country round about, and brought unto Him all that were diseased; 36 And besought Him that they might only touch the hem of His garment: and as many as touched were made perfectly whole.

MATTHEW 15 The Reverent Bible Edition of the KJV Bible

15 Then scribes and Pharisees who were of Jerusalem came to Jesus, saying, 2  Why do Your 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? 4  For God commanded, saying, Honor your father and mother: and, He who curses father or mother, let him die the death.  5  But you say, Whosoever shall say to his father or his mother, It is a gift, by whatsoever you might be profited by me; 6  And honor not his father or his mother, he shall be free. Thus have you made the Commandment of God of none effect by your tradition. 7 You hypocrites, well did Isaiah prophesy of you, saying, This people draws nigh unto Me with their mouth, and honors Me with their lips; but their heart is far from Me. 9 But in vain they worship Me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men. 10  And He called the multitude, and said unto them, Hear, and understand; 11 Not that which goes into the mouth defiles a man; but that which comes out of the mouth, this defiles a man. 12 Then His disciples came, and said unto Him, Do You know that the Pharisees were offended, after they heard this saying? 13 But He answered and said, Every plant that My Heavenly Father has not planted, shall be rooted up. 14 Let them alone: they are 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 you also yet without understanding?

17 Do not you yet understand, that whatsoever enters in at the mouth goes 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 out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, blasphemies; 20 These are the things which defile a man; but to eat with unwashed hands defiles not a man.

21 Then Jesus went thence, and departed into the coasts of Tyre and Sidon. 22 And, behold, a woman of Canaan came out of the same coasts, and cried unto Him, saying, Have mercy on me, O Lord, Son of David; my daughter is grievously vexed with a devil. 23 But He answered her not a word. And His disciples came and besought Him, saying, Send her away; for she cries after us. 24 But He answered and said, I am not sent but unto the lost sheep of the House of Israel. 25 Then she came and worshipped Him, saying, Lord, please help me. 26 But He answered and said, It is not meet to take the children's bread, and to cast it to dogs. 27 And she said, Truth, Lord: yet the dogs eat of the crumbs that fall from their masters' table. 28 Then Jesus answered and said unto her, O woman, great is your faith: be it unto you even as you will. And her daughter was made whole from that very hour. 29 And Jesus departed from thence, and came nigh unto the Sea of Galilee; and went up into a mountain, and sat down there. 30 And 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; 31 Insomuch that the multitude wondered, when they saw the dumb to speak, the maimed to be whole, the lame to walk, and the blind to see: and they glorified the God of Israel. 32 Then Jesus called His disciples unto Him, and said, I have compassion on the multitude, because they continue with Me now 3 days, and have nothing to eat: and I will not send them away fasting, lest they faint in the way. 33 And His disciples said unto Him, Whence should we have so much bread in the wilderness, as to fill so great a multitude? 34 And Jesus said unto them, How many loaves have you? And they said, 7, and a few little fishes. 35 And He commanded the multitude to sit down on the ground. 36 And He took the 7 loaves and the fishes, and gave thanks, and broke them, and gave to His disciples, and the disciples to the multitude. 37 And they all ate, and were filled: and they took up of the broken meat that was left 7 baskets full. 38 And they that ate were 4,000 men, beside women and children. 39 And He sent away the multitude, and took ship, and came into the coasts of Magdala.

MATTHEW 16 The Reverent Bible Edition of the KJV Bible

16 The Pharisees also with the Sadducees came, and tempting desired Him that he would show them a sign from heaven. 2  He answered and said unto them, When it is evening, you say, It will be fair weather: for the sky is red. 3  And in the morning, It will be foul weather today; for the sky is red and lowering. O you hypocrites, you can discern the face of the sky; but can you not discern the signs of the times? 4  A wicked and adulterous generation seeks after a sign; and there shall no sign be given unto it, but the sign of the Prophet Jonah. And He left them, and departed. 5  And when His disciples had come to the other side, they had forgotten to take bread. 6  Then Jesus said unto them, Take heed and beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and of the Sadducees. 7  And they reasoned among themselves, saying, It is because we have taken no bread. 8  Which when Jesus perceived, He said unto them, O you of little faith, why reason you among yourselves, because you have brought no bread? 9  Do you not yet understand, neither remember the 5 loaves of the 5,000, and how many baskets you took up? 10 Neither the 7 loaves of the 4,000, and how many baskets you took up? 11 How is it that you do not understand that I spoke it not to you concerning bread, that you should beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and of the Sadducees? 12 Then they understood how that He bade them not beware of the leaven of bread, but of the doctrine of the Pharisees and of the Sadducees. 13 When Jesus came into the coasts of Caesarea Philippi, He asked His disciples, saying, Whom do men say that I the Son of Man am? 14 And they said, Some say that You are John the Baptist: some, Elijah; and others, Jeremiah, or one of the Prophets. 15 He said unto them, But Whom say you that I am? 16 And Simon Peter answered and said, You are the Christ, the Son of the living God. 17 And Jesus answered and said unto him, Blessed are you, Simon Barjona: for flesh and blood has not revealed it unto you, but My Father Who is in heaven. 18 And I say also unto you, That you are Peter, and upon this rock I will build My Church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. 19 And I will give unto you the Keys of the Kingdom of Heaven: and whatsoever you shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever you shall loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven. 20 Then He charged His disciples that they should tell no man that He was Jesus the Christ. 21 From that time forth Jesus began to show unto His disciples, how that He must go unto Jerusalem, and suffer many things of the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be killed, and be raised again the third day. 22  Then Peter took Him, and began to rebuke Him, saying, Be it far from You, Lord: this shall not be unto You. 23  But He turned, and said unto Peter, Get behind me, satan: you are an offence unto Me: for you savor not the things that are of God, but those that are of men. 24 Then said Jesus unto His disciples,

If any man will come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow Me.
25 For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: and whosoever will lose his life for My sake shall find it.
26 For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?

27 For the Son of Man shall come in the Glory of His Father with His Angels; and then He shall reward every  man according to his works. 28 Amen I say unto you, there be some standing here, which shall not taste of death, till they see the Son of Man coming in His Kingdom..

MATTHEW 17 The Reverent Bible Edition of the KJV Bible

17 And after 6 days Jesus took Peter, Jacob, and John his brother, and brought them up into an high mountain apart, 2  And was transfigured before them: and His Face did shine as the sun, and His raiment was white as the light. 3 And, behold, there appeared unto them Moses and Elijah talking with Him. 4  Then answered Peter, and said unto Jesus, Lord, it is good for us to be here: if You will, let us make here 3 tabernacles; one for You, and one for Moses, and one for Elijah. 5 While he yet spoke, behold, a bright cloud overshadowed them: and behold a Voice out of the cloud, which said, This is My Beloved Son, in Whom I am well pleased; hear Him. 6  And when the disciples heard it, they fell on their face, and were sore afraid. 7  And Jesus came and touched them, and said, Arise, and be not afraid. 8  And when they had lifted up their eyes, they saw no man, save Jesus only. 9  And as they came down from the mountain, Jesus charged them, saying, Tell the vision to no man, until the Son of Man be risen again from the dead. 10 And His disciples asked Him, saying, Why then say the scribes that Elijah must first come? 11 And Jesus answered and said unto them, Elijah truly shall first come, and restore all things. 12  But I say unto you, That Elijah has come already, and they knew him not, but have done unto him whatsoever they listed. Likewise shall also the Son of Man suffer of them. 13  Then the disciples understood that he spoke unto them of John the Baptist. 14  And when they were come to the multitude, there came to Him a certain man, kneeling down to Him, and saying, 15  Lord, have mercy on my son: for he is lunatic, and sore vexed: for oft times he falls into the fire, and oft into the water. 16  And I brought him to Your disciples, and they could not cure him. 17 Then Jesus answered and said, O faithless and perverse generation, how long shall I be with you? how long shall I suffer you? Bring him hither to Me. 18  And Jesus rebuked the devil; and he departed out of him: and the child was cured from that very hour. 19 Then the disciples came to Jesus apart, and said, Why could not we cast him out? 20 And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief; for 

Amen I say unto you, If you have faith as a grain of mustard seed, you shall say unto this
mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you.
21 However this kind goes not out but by prayer and fasting.

22  And while they abode in Galilee, Jesus said unto them, The Son of Man shall be betrayed into the hands of men; 23 And they shall kill Him, and the third day he shall be raised again. And they were exceeding sorry. 24  And when they were come to Capernaum, those who received tribute money came to Peter, and said, Does not your Master pay tribute? 25  He said, Yes. And when he had come into the house, Jesus prevented him, saying, What think you, Simon? Of whom do the kings of the earth take custom or tribute? Of their own children, or of strangers? 26 Peter said unto Him, Of strangers. Jesus said unto him, Then are the children free. 27 Notwithstanding, lest we should offend them, go you to the sea, and cast an hook, and take up the fish that first comes up; and when you have opened his mouth, you shall find a piece of money; that take, and give unto them for Me and you.

MATTHEW 18 The Reverent Bible Edition of the KJV Bible

18 At the same time came the disciples unto Jesus, saying, Who is the greatest in the Kingdom of Heaven? And Jesus called a little child unto Him, and set him in the midst of them, And said, Amen I say unto you, unless you are converted, and become as little children, you shall not enter into the Kingdom of Heaven. Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the Kingdom of Heaven. And whoso shall receive one such little child in My Name receives Me. 6  But whoso shall offend one of these little ones who believe in Me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea. 7  Woe unto the world because of offences! for it must needs be that offences come; but woe to that man by whom the offence comes! 8  Wherefore if your hand or your foot offend you, cut them off, and cast them from you: it is better for you to enter into life halt or maimed, rather than having 2 hands or 2 feet to be cast into everlasting fire. 9  And if your eye offend you, pluck it out, and cast it from you: it is better for you to enter into life with one eye, rather than having 2 eyes to be cast into hell fire. 10 Take heed that you despise not one of these little ones; for I say unto you, That in heaven their Angels always behold the Face of My Father Who is in Heaven. 11 For the Son of Man has come to save that which was lost. 12 How think you? If a man have 100 sheep, and 1 of them has gone astray, does he not leave the 99, and go into the mountains, and seek that which is gone astray? 13  And if so be that he finds it, Amen I say unto you, he rejoices more of that sheep, than of the 99 that went not astray. 14  Even so it is not the will of your Father Who is in heaven, that one of these little ones should perish. 15  Moreover if your brother shall trespass against you, go and tell him his fault between you and him alone; if he shall hear you, you have gained your brother. 16  But if he will not hear you, then take with you 1 or 2 more, that in the mouth of 2 or 3 witnesses every word may be established. 17 And if he shall neglect to hear them, tell it unto the Church: but if he neglect to hear the Church, let him be unto you as an heathen man and a publican. 18 Amen I say unto you, Whatsoever you shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever you shall loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven. 19  Again I say unto you, That if 2 of you shall agree on earth as touching anything that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of My Father Who is in Heaven. 20 For where 2 or 3 are gathered together in My Name, there am I in the midst of them. 21 Then came Peter to him, and said, Lord, how oft shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him; till 7 times? 22 Jesus said unto him, I say not unto you, until 7 times: but, until 70 times 7. 23 Therefore is the Kingdom of Heaven likened unto a certain king, who would take account of his servants. 24 And when he had begun to reckon, one was brought unto him, which owed him 10,000 talents. 25 But forasmuch as he had not to pay, his lord commanded him to be sold, and his wife, and children, and all that he had, and payment to be made. 26 The servant therefore fell down, and worshiped him, saying, Lord, have patience with me, and I will pay you all. 27 Then the lord of that servant was moved with compassion, and loosed him, and forgave him the debt. 28 But the same servant went out, and found one of his fellow servants, which owed him 100 denaria; and he laid hands on him, and took him by the throat, saying, Pay me that you owe. 29 And his fellow servant fell down at his feet, and besought him, saying, Have patience with me, and I will pay you all. 30 And he would not: but went and cast him into prison, till he should pay the debt. 31 So when his fellow servants saw what was done, they were very sorry, and came and told unto their lord all that was done. 32 Then his lord, after that he had called him, said unto him, O you wicked servant, I forgave you all that debt, because you desired me; 33 Should not you also have had compassion on your fellow servant, even as I had pity on you? 34 And his lord was wroth, and delivered him to the tormentors, till he should pay all that was due unto him. 35  So likewise shall My Heavenly Father do also unto you, if you from your hearts forgive not everyone his brother their trespasses.

MATTHEW 19 The Reverent Bible Edition of the KJV Bible

19 And it came to pass, that when Jesus had finished these sayings, He departed from Galilee, and came into the coasts of Judaea beyond Jordan; 2 And great multitudes followed Him; and He healed them there. 3 The Pharisees also came unto Him, tempting Him, and saying unto Him, Is it lawful for a man to put away his wife for every cause? 4 And He answered and said unto them, Have you not read, that He Who made them at the beginning made them male and female, 5  And said, For this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they 2 shall be 1 flesh? 6  Wherefore they are no more 2, but 1 flesh. What therefore God has joined together, let not man put asunder. They say unto him, Why did Moses then command to give a writing of divorcement, and to put her away? 8 He said unto them, Moses because of the hardness of your hearts suffered you to put away your wives: but from the beginning it was not so. And I say unto you, Whosoever shall put away his wife, except it be for fornication, and shall marry another, commits adultery: and whoso marries her who is put away commits adultery. 10 His disciples say unto Him, If the case of the man be so with his wife, it is not good to marry. 11 But He said unto them, All men cannot receive this saying, save they to whom it is given. 12 For there are some eunuchs, which were so born from their mother's womb: and there are some eunuchs, which were made eunuchs of men: and there be eunuchs, which have made themselves eunuchs for the Kingdom of Heaven's sake. He that is able to receive it, let him receive it. 13 Then were there brought unto Him little children, that He should put His Hands on them, and pray: and the disciples rebuked them. 14 But Jesus said, Suffer little children, and forbid them not, to come unto Me: for of such is the Kingdom of Heaven. 15 And He laid His Hands on them, and departed thence. 16 And, behold, one came and said unto him, Good Master, what good thing shall I do, that I may have eternal life? 17 And He said unto him, Why call Me good? there is none good but One, that is, God: but if you will enter into life, keep the commandments. 18 He said unto him, which? Jesus said, You shall do no murder, You shall not commit adultery, You shall not steal, You shall not bear false witness, 19 Honor your father and your mother: and, You shall love your neighbor as yourself. 20 The young man said unto him, All these things have I kept from my youth up: what lack I yet? 21 Jesus said unto him, If you will be perfect, go and sell that you have, and give to the poor, and you shall have treasure in heaven: and come and follow Me. 22 But when the young man heard that saying, he went away sorrowful: for he had great possessions. 23 Then said Jesus unto His disciples, Amen I say unto you, That a rich man shall hardly enter into the Kingdom of Heaven. 24 And again I say unto you, It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the Kingdom of God. 25 When His disciples heard it, they were exceedingly amazed, saying, Who then can be saved? 26 But Jesus beheld them, and said unto them, With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible. 27 Then answered Peter and said unto Him, Behold, we have forsaken all, and followed You; what shall we have therefore? 28 And Jesus said unto them, Amen I say unto you, that you who have followed Me, in the regeneration when the Son of Man shall sit in the Throne of His Glory, you also shall sit upon 12 thrones, judging the 12 tribes of Israel. 29 And everyone who has forsaken houses, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for My Name's sake, shall receive 100-fold, and shall inherit everlasting life. 30 But many that are first shall be last; and the last shall be first.

MATTHEW 20 The Reverent Bible Edition of the KJV Bible

20 For the Kingdom of Heaven is like unto a man that is an householder, which went out early in the morning to hire laborers into his vineyard. 2 And when he had agreed with the laborers for a denarius a day, he sent them into his vineyard. 3 And he went out about the 3rd hour, and saw others standing idle in the marketplace, And said unto them; Go you also into the vineyard, and whatsoever is right I will give you. And they went their way. 5 Again he went out about the 6th and 9th hour, and did likewise. 6 And about the 11th hour he went out, and found others standing idle, and said unto them, Why stand you here all the day idle? They said unto him, Because no man has hired us. He said unto them, Go you also into the vineyard; and whatsoever is right, that shall you receive. So when even was come, the lord of the vineyard said unto his steward, Call the laborers, and give them their hire, beginning from the last unto the first. 9 And when they came that were hired about the 11th hour, they received every man a denarius. 10 But when the first came, they supposed that they should have received more; and they likewise received every man a denarius. 11 And when they had received it, they murmured against the good man of the house, 12 Saying, These last have wrought but 1 hour, and you have made them equal unto us, which have borne the burden and heat of the day. 13 But he answered one of them, and said, Friend, I do you no wrong: did not you agree with me for a denarius? 14 Take what is yours, and go your way: I will give unto this last, even as unto you. 15 Is it not lawful for me to do what I will with mine own? Is your eye evil, because I am good? 16 So the last shall be first, and the first last: for many be called, but few chosen. 17 And Jesus going up to Jerusalem took the 12 disciples apart in the way, and said unto them, 18 Behold, we go up to Jerusalem; and the Son of Man shall be betrayed unto the chief priests and unto the scribes, and they shall condemn Him to death, 19 And shall deliver Him to the Gentiles to mock, and to scourge, and to crucify Him: and the third day He shall rise again. 20 Then came to Him the mother of Zebedees children with her sons, worshipping Him, and desiring a certain thing of Him. 21 And He said unto her, What will you? She said unto Him, Grant that these my 2 sons may sit, the 1 on Your right hand, and the other on the left, in Your Kingdom. 22 But Jesus answered and said, you know not what you ask. Are you able to drink of the cup that I shall drink of, and to be baptized with the baptism that I am baptized with? They said unto Him, We are able. 23 And He said unto them, You shall drink indeed of My cup, and be baptized with the baptism that I am baptized with; but to sit on My Right Hand, and on My Left, is not Mine to give, but it shall be given to them for whom it is prepared of My Father. 24 And when the 10 heard it, they were moved with indignation against the 2 brethren. 25 But Jesus called them unto Him, and said, You know that the princes of the Gentiles exercise dominion over them, and those who are great exercise authority upon them. 26 But it shall not be so among you: but whosoever will be great among you, let him be your minister; 27 And whosoever will be chief among you, let him be your servant; 28 Even as the Son of Man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give His Life a ransom for many. 29 And as they departed from Jericho, a great multitude followed Him. 30 And, behold, 2 blind men sitting by the way side, when they heard that Jesus passed by, cried out, saying, Have mercy on us, O Lord, you son of David. 31 And the multitude rebuked them, because they should hold their peace: but they cried the more, saying, Have mercy on us, O Lord, you son of David. 32 And Jesus stood still, and called them, and said, What will you that I shall do unto you? 33 They said unto Him, Lord, that our eyes may be opened. 34 So Jesus had compassion on them, and touched their eyes: and immediately their eyes received sight, and they followed Him.

MATTHEW 21 The Reverent Bible Edition of the KJV Bible

21 And when they drew nigh unto Jerusalem, and were come to Bethphage, unto the mount of Olives, then sent Jesus 2 disciples, 2 Saying unto them, Go into the village over against you, and straightway you shall find an ass tied, and a colt with her: loose them, and bring them unto Me. 3 And if any man say ought unto you, you shall say, The Lord has need of them; and straightway he will send them. All this was done, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the Prophet, saying, Tell the daughter of Zion, Behold, your King comes unto you, meek, and sitting upon an ass, and a colt the foal of an ass. And the disciples went, and did as Jesus commanded them, And brought the ass, and the colt, and put on them their clothes, and they set Him thereon. 8 And a very great multitude spread their garments in the way; others cut down branches from the trees, and strawed them in the way.  9And the multitudes that went before, and that followed, cried, saying, Hosanna to the Son of David: Blessed is He Who comes in the Name of the Lord; Hosanna in the highest. 10 And when He was come into Jerusalem, all the city was moved, saying, Who is this? 11 And the multitude said, This is Jesus the Prophet of Nazareth of Galilee. 12 And Jesus went into the Temple of God, and cast out all them that sold and bought in the Temple, and overthrew the tables of the moneychangers, and the seats of them that sold doves, 13 And said unto them, It is written, My House shall be called the House of Prayer; but you have made it a den of thieves. 14 And the blind and the lame came to Him in the Temple; and He healed them. 15 And when the chief priests and scribes saw the wonderful things that He did, and the children crying in the Temple, and saying, Hosanna to the son of David; they were sore displeased, 16 And said unto Him, Do You hear what these say? And Jesus said unto them, Yea; have you never read, Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings You have perfected praise? 17 And He left them, and went out of the city into Bethany; and He lodged there. 18 Now in the morning as He returned into the city, He hungered. 19 And when He saw a fig tree in the way, He came to it, and found nothing thereon, but leaves only, and said unto it, Let no fruit grow on you henceforward forever. And presently the fig tree withered away. 20 And when the disciples saw it, they marveled, saying, How soon is the fig tree withered away! 21 Jesus answered and said unto them,

Amen I say unto you, If you have faith, and doubt not, you shall not only do this which is done to the fig tree, 

but also if you shall say unto this mountain, Be removed, and be cast into the sea; it shall be done. 22 And all things, 

whatsoever you shall ask in prayer, believing, you shall receive.

23 And when He was come into the Temple, the chief priests and the elders of the people came unto Him as He was teaching, and said, By what authority do You these things; and Who gave You this authority? 24 And Jesus answered and said unto them, I also will ask you one thing, which if you tell Me, I in like wise will tell you by what authority I do these things. 25 The baptism of John, whence was it; from heaven, or of men? And they reasoned with themselves, saying, If we shall say, From heaven; He will say unto us, Why did you not then believe him? 26 But if we shall say, Of men; we fear the people; for all hold John as a Prophet. 27 And they answered Jesus, and said, We cannot tell. And He said unto them, Neither tell I you by what authority I do these things. 28 But what think you? A certain man had 2 sons; and he came to the first, and said, Son, go work to day in my vineyard. 29 He answered and said, I will not: but afterward he repented, and went. 30 And he came to the second, and said likewise. And he answered and said, I go, sir: and went not. 31 Whether of them 2 did the will of his father? They said unto him, The first. Jesus said unto them, Amen I say unto you, that the publicans and the harlots go into the Kingdom of God before you. 32 For John came unto you in the way of righteousness, and you believed him not: but the publicans and the harlots believed him: and you, when you had seen it, repented not afterward, that you might believe him. 33 Hear another parable: There was a certain householder, which planted a vineyard, and hedged it round about, and dug a winepress in it, and built a tower, and let it out to husbandmen, and went into a far country; 34 And when the time of the fruit drew near, he sent his servants to the husbandmen, that they might receive the fruits of it. 35 And the husbandmen took his servants, and beat one, and killed another, and stoned another. 36 Again, he sent other servants more than the first: and they did unto them likewise. 37 But last of all he sent unto them his son, saying, They will reverence my son. 38 But when the husbandmen saw the son, they said among themselves, This is the heir; come, let us kill him, and let us seize on his inheritance. 39 And they caught him, and cast him out of the vineyard, and slew him. 40 When the lord therefore of the vineyard comes, what will he do unto those husbandmen? 41 They said unto him, he will miserably destroy those wicked men, and will let out his vineyard unto other husbandmen, which shall render him the fruits in their seasons. 42 Jesus said unto them, Did you never read in the Scriptures, The stone which the builders rejected, the same is become the head of the corner; this is the Lord's doing, and it is marvelous in our eyes? 43 Therefore I say unto you, The Kingdom of God shall be taken from you, and given to a nation bringing forth the fruits thereof.  44 And whosoever shall fall on this stone shall be broken: but on whomsoever it shall fall, it will grind him to powder. 45 And when the chief priests and Pharisees had heard His parables, they perceived that He spoke of them. 46 But when they sought to lay hands on Him, they feared the multitude, because they took Him for a Prophet. 

MATTHEW 22 The Reverent Bible Edition of the KJV Bible

22 And Jesus answered and spoke unto them again by parables, and said, The Kingdom of Heaven is like unto a certain king, who made a marriage for his son, 3 And sent forth his servants to call those who were bidden to the wedding: and they would not come. Again, he sent forth other servants, saying, Tell them which are bidden, Behold, I have prepared my dinner: my oxen and my fatlings are killed, and all things are ready: come unto the marriage. 5 But they made light of it, and went their ways, one to his farm, another to his merchandise; And the remnant took his servants, and entreated them spitefully, and slew them. But when the king heard thereof, he was wroth: and he sent forth his armies, and destroyed those murderers, and burned up their city. Then said he to his servants, The wedding is ready, but they which were bidden were not worthy. 9 Go therefore into the highways, and as many as you shall find, bid to the marriage. 10 So those servants went out into the highways, and gathered together all as many as they found, both bad and good: and the wedding was furnished with guests. 11 And when the king came in to see the guests, he saw there a man who had not on a wedding garment; 12 And he said unto him, Friend, how did you come in hither not having a wedding garment? And he was speechless. 13 Then said the king to the servants, Bind him hand and foot, and take him away, and cast him into outer darkness, there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth. 14 For many are called, but few are chosen. 15 Then went the Pharisees, and took counsel how they might entangle him in his talk. 16 And they sent out unto him their disciples with the Herodians, saying, Master, we know that you are true, and teach the way of God in truth, neither do You care for any man: for You regard not the person of men. 17 Tell us therefore, What do You think? Is it lawful to give tribute unto Caesar, or not? 18 But Jesus perceived their wickedness, and said, Why tempt Me, you hypocrites? 19 Show Me the tribute money. And they brought unto Him a denarius. 20 And He said unto them, Whose is this image and superscription? 21 They said unto Him, Caesar's. Then He said unto them, Render therefore unto Caesar the things which are Caesar's; and unto God the things that are God's. 22 When they had heard these words, they marveled, and left him, and went their way. 23 The same day the Sadducees, who say that there is no resurrection came to Him and asked Him, 24 Saying, Master, Moses said, If a man dies, having no children, his brother shall marry his wife, and raise up seed unto his brother. 25 Now there were with us 7 brethren: and the first, when he had married a wife, deceased, and, having no issue, left his wife unto his brother; 26 Likewise the 2nd also, and the 3rd, unto the 7th. 27 And last of all, the woman died also. 28 Therefore in the resurrection whose wife shall she be of the 7, for  they all had her. 29 Jesus answered and said unto them, you err, not knowing the Scriptures, nor the Power of God. 30 For in the resurrection they neither marry, nor are given in marriage, but are as the Angels of God in Heaven. 31 But as touching the resurrection of the dead, have you not read that which was spoken unto you by God, saying, 32 I am the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob? God is not the God of the dead, but of the living. 33 And when the multitude heard this, they were astonished at His doctrine. 34 But when the Pharisees had heard that He had put the Sadducees to silence, they were gathered together. 35 Then one of them, who was a lawyer, asked Him a question, tempting Him, and saying, 36 Master, which is the great Commandment in the law? 37 Jesus said unto him, you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind. 38 This is the first and great Commandment. 39 And the second is like unto it, you shall love your neighbor as yourself. 40 On these 2 Commandments hang all the Law and the Prophets. 41 While the Pharisees were gathered together, Jesus asked them, 42 Saying, What do you think of Christ? Whose Son is He? They say unto Him, The Son of David. 43 He said unto them, How then does David in spirit call Him Lord, saying, 44 The Lord said unto my Lord, Sit on My Right Hand, till I make Your enemies Your footstool? 45 If David then call Him Lord, how is He His Son? 46 And no man was able to answer Him a word, neither did any man from that day forth ask Him any more questions.  

MATTHEW 23 The Reverent Bible Edition of the KJV Bible

23 Then Jesus spoke to the multitude, and to His disciples, 2 Saying The scribes and the Pharisees sit in Moses' seat; 3 All therefore whatsoever they bid you observe, that observe and do; but do not do after their works: for they say, and do not. 4 For they bind heavy burdens and grievous to be borne, and lay them on men's shoulders; but they themselves will not move them with one of their fingers. 5 But all their works they do for to be seen of men: they make broad their phylacteries, and enlarge the borders of their garments, 6 And love the uppermost rooms at feasts, and the chief seats in the synagogues, 7 And greetings in the markets, and to be called of men, Rabbi, Rabbi. 8 But be not called Rabbi: for one is your Master, even Christ; and all you are brethren. 9 And call no man your father upon the earth: for one is your Father, Who is in Heaven. 10 Neither be called masters: for One is your Master, even Christ. 11 But he that is greatest among you shall be your servant. 12 And whosoever shall exalt himself shall be abased; and he who shall humble himself shall be exalted. 13 But woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for you shut up the Kingdom of Heaven against men: for you neither go in yourselves, neither do you suffer them that are entering to go in. 14 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites, for you devour widows' houses, and for a pretense make long prayer; therefore you shall receive the greater damnation. 15 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites, for you encompass sea and land to make one proselyte, and when he is made, you make him 2-fold more the child of hell than yourselves. 16 Woe unto you, you blind guides, who say, Whosoever shall swear by the Temple, it is nothing; but whosoever shall swear by the gold of the Temple, he is a debtor! 17 You fools and blind: for whether is greater, the gold, or the Temple that sanctifies the gold? 18 And, Whosoever shall swear by the altar, it is nothing; but whosoever swears by the gift that is upon it, he is guilty. 19 You fools and blind: for whether is greater, the gift, or the altar that sanctifies the gift? 20 Whoso therefore shall swear by the altar, swears by it, and by all things thereon. 21 And whoso shall swear by the Temple, swears by it, and by Him Who dwells therein. 22 And he who shall swear by Heaven, swears by the Throne of God, and by Him Who sits thereon. 23 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you pay tithe of mint and anise and cumin, and have omitted the Weightier Matters of the Law, Judgment, Mercy, and Faith: these ought you to have done, and not to leave the other undone. 24 You blind guides, who strain at a gnat, and swallow a camel. 25 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites, for you make clean the outside of the cup and of the platter, but within they are full of extortion and excess. 26 You blind Pharisee, cleanse first that which is within the cup and platter, that the outside of them may be clean also. 27 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites, for you are like unto whited sepulchers, which indeed appear beautiful outward, but are within full of dead men's bones, and of all uncleanness. 28 Even so you also outwardly appear righteous unto men, but within you are full of hypocrisy and iniquity. 29 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites, because you build the tombs of the Prophets, and garnish the sepulchers of the righteous, 30 And say, If we had been in the days of our fathers, we would not have been partakers with them in the blood of the Prophets. 31 Wherefore you are witnesses unto yourselves, that you are the children of those who killed the Prophets. 32 Fill up then the measure of your fathers. 33 You serpents, you generation of vipers, how can you escape the damnation of hell? 34 Wherefore, behold, I send unto you Prophets, and wise men, and scribes: and some of them you shall kill and crucify; and some of them shall you scourge in your synagogues, and persecute them from city to city; 35 That upon you may come all the righteous blood shed upon the earth, from the blood of righteous Abel unto the blood of Zacharias son of Barachias, whom you slew between the Temple and the altar. 36 Amen I say unto you, All these things shall come upon this generation. 37 O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, you who kill the prophets, and stone those who are sent unto you, how often would I have gathered your children together, even as a hen gathers her chickens under her wings, and you would not! 38 Behold, your house is left unto you desolate. 39 For I say unto you, you shall not see Me henceforth, till you shall say, Blessed is Me Who comes in the Name of the Lord.

MATTHEW 24 The Reverent Bible Edition of the KJV Bible

24 And Jesus went out, and departed from the Temple: and His disciples came to Him to show Him the buildings of the Temple. 2 And Jesus said unto them, See all these things? Amen I say unto you, there shall not be left here one stone upon another that shall not be thrown down. 3  And as He sat upon the Mount of Olives, the disciples came unto Him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be, and what shall be the sign of Your Coming, and of the end of the world? 4  And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you. 5  For many shall come in My Name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many. 6 And you shall hear of wars and rumors of wars: see that you are not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. 7  For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. 8  All these are the beginning of sorrows. 9  Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and you shall be hated of all nations for My Name's sake. 10  And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another. 11 And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many. 12 And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold. 13 But he who shall endure unto the end, shall be saved. 14 And this Gospel of the Kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come. 15 When you therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the Prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso reads, let him understand;) 16 Then let those who are in Judaea flee into the mountains; 17 Let him who is on the housetop not come down to take anything out of his house; 18 Neither let him who is in the field return back to take his clothes. 19 And woe unto those who are with child, and to those who give suck in those days! 20 But pray that your flight be not in the winter, neither on the Sabbath Day; 21 For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be. 22 And unless those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect's sake those days shall be shortened. 23 Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or there; believe it not. 24 For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall show great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect. 25 Behold, I have told you before. 26 Wherefore if they shall say unto you, Behold, he is in the desert; go not forth: behold, he is in the secret chambers; believe it not. 27 For as the lightning comes out of the east, and shines even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of Man be. 28 For wheresoever the carcase is, there will the eagles be gathered together. 29 Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken; 30 And then shall appear the sign of the Son of Man in Heaven; and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of Man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. 31 And He shall send His Angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together His elect from the 4 winds, from one end of heaven to the other. 32  Now learn a Parable of the Fig Tree; When his branch is yet tender, and puts forth leaves, you know that summer is nigh; 33 So likewise you, when you shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors. 34 Amen I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled. 35 Heaven and earth shall pass away, but My Words shall not pass away. 36 But of that day and hour no man knows, no, not the Angels of Heaven, but My Father only. 37 But as the days of Noah 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 the day that Noah entered into the Ark,  39 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 2 be in the field; the 1 shall be taken, and the other left. 41 Two women shall be grinding at the mill; the one shall be taken, and the other left. 42 Watch therefore: for you know not what hour your Lord  comes. 43 But know this, that if the good man 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 be also ready: for in such an hour as you think not the Son of Man comes. 45 Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom his lord has made ruler over his household, to give them meat in due season? 46 Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he comes shall find so doing. 47 Amen I say unto you, That he shall make him ruler over all his goods. 48 But and if that evil servant shall say in his heart, My lord delays 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 when he looks not for him, and in an hour that he is not aware of, 51 And shall cut him asunder, and appoint him his portion with the hypocrites: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

MATTHEW 25 The Reverent Bible Edition of the KJV Bible

25 Then shall the Kingdom of Heaven be likened unto 10 virgins, who took their lamps, and went forth to meet the Bridegroom. 2  And 5 of them were wise, and 5 were foolish. 3 Those who were foolish took their lamps, and took no oil with them; 4 But the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps. 5  While the Bridegroom tarried, they all slumbered and slept. 6  And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the Bridegroom comes; go out to meet Him. 7  Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps. And the foolish said unto the wise, Give us of your oil; for our lamps are gone out. 9  But the wise answered, saying, Not so; lest there be not enough for us and you; but go rather to those who sell, and buy for yourselves. 10 And while they went to buy, the Bridegroom came; and those who were ready went in with Him to the Marriage: and the door was shut. 11 Afterward came also the other virgins, saying, Lord, Lord, open to us. 12  But He answered and said, Amen I say unto you, I know you not. 13 Watch therefore, for you know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of Man comes. 14  For 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 5 talents, to another 2, and to another 1; to every man according to his abilities; and straightway took his journey. 16 Then he who had received the 5 talents went and traded with the same, and made them another 5 talents. 17 And likewise he that had received 2, he also gained another 2. 18 But he who had received 1 went and dug in the earth, and hid his lord's money. 19 After a long time the lord of those servants came, and reckoned with them. 20 And so he who had received 5 talents came and brought another 5 talents, saying, lord, you delivered unto me 5 talents: behold, I have gained beside them 5 talents more. 21 His lord said unto him, Well done, you good and faithful servant: you have been faithful over a few things, I will make you ruler over many things: enter into the joy of your lord. 22  He also who had received 2 talents came and said, Lord, you delivered unto me 2 talents: behold, I have gained 2 other talents beside them. 23  His lord said unto him, Well done, good and faithful servant; you have been faithful over a few things, I will make you ruler over many things: enter into the joy of your lord. 24 Then he which had received the one talent came and said, Lord, I knew you that you are an hard man, reaping where you have not sown, and gathering where you have not strawed;  25 And I was afraid, and went and hid your talent in the earth; lo, there you have that is yours. 26 His lord answered and said unto him, you wicked and slothful servant, you knew that I reap where I sowed not, and gather where I have not strawed; 27 You ought therefore to have put my money to the exchangers, and then at my coming I should have received mine own with usury. 28 Take therefore the talent from him, and give it unto him which has 10 talents. 29 For unto everyone who has shall be given, and he shall have abundance: but from him who has not shall be taken away even that which he has. 30 And cast the unprofitable servant into outer darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth. 31 When the Son of Man shall come in His Glory, and all the Holy Angels with Him, then shall He sit upon the Throne of His Glory; 32 And before Him shall be gathered all nations: and He shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divides his sheep from the goats; 33 And He shall set the sheep on His Right Hand, but the goats on the Left. 34 Then shall the King say unto those on His Right Hand, Come, you blessed of My Father, inherit the Kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world; 35 For I was hungry, and you gave Me meat: I was thirsty, and you gave Me drink: I was a stranger, and you took Me in; 36 Naked, and you clothed Me; I was sick, and you visited Me; I was in prison, and you came unto Me. 37 Then shall the righteous answer Him, saying, Lord, when did we see You hungry, and fed You, or thirsty, and gave You drink? 38 When did we see You a stranger, and took You in, or naked, and clothed You? 39 Or when did we see You sick, or in prison, and came unto You? 40 And the King shall answer and say unto them, Amen I say unto you, Inasmuch as you have done it unto one of the least of these My brethren, you have done it unto Me. 41 Then shall He say also unto those on the Left Hand, Depart from Me, you cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels; 42 For I was  hungry, and you gave Me no meat; I was thirsty, and you gave Me no drink; 43 I was a stranger, and you took Me not in; naked, and you clothed Me not: sick, and in prison, and you visited Me not. 44 Then shall they also answer Him, saying, Lord, when did we see You hungry, or athirst, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister unto You? 45 Then shall He answer them, saying, Amen I say unto you, Inasmuch as you did it not to one of the least of these, you did it not to Me. 46 And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal.

MATTHEW 26 The Reverent Bible Edition of the KJV Bible

26 And it came to pass, when Jesus had finished all these sayings, He said unto His disciples, 2 You know that after 2 days is the Feast of the Passover, and the Son of Man is betrayed to be crucified. 3 Then assembled together the chief priests, and the scribes, and the elders of the people, unto the palace of the high priest, who was called Caiaphas, And consulted that they might take Jesus by subtlety, and kill Him. 5 But they said, Not on the Feast Day, lest there be an uproar among the people. 6 Now when Jesus was in Bethany, in the house of Simon the leper, 7  There came unto Him a woman having an alabaster box of very precious ointment, and poured it on His Head, as He sat at meat. 8  But when His disciples saw it, they had indignation, saying, To what purpose is this waste? 9  For this ointment might have been sold for much, and given to the poor. 10  When Jesus understood it, He said unto them, Why trouble the woman? For she has wrought a good work upon Me. 11 For you have the poor always with you; but Me you have not always. 12  For in that she has poured this ointment on My Body, she did it for My burial. 13  Amen I say unto you, Wheresoever this Gospel shall be preached in the whole world, there shall also this, that this woman has done, be told for a memorial of her. 14 Then one of the 12, called Judas Iscariot, went unto the chief priests, 15  And said unto them, What will you give me, and I will deliver Him unto you? And they covenanted with Him for 30 pieces of silver. 16 And from that time he sought opportunity to betray Him. 17 Now the first day of the Feast of Unleavened Bread the disciples came to Jesus, saying unto Him, Where will You that we prepare for You to eat the Passover? 18 And He said, Go into the city to such a man, and say unto him, The Master said, My time is at hand; I will keep the Passover at your house with My disciples. 19 And the disciples did as Jesus had appointed them; and they made ready the Passover. 20 Now when evening had come, He sat down with the 12. 21 And as they ate, He said, Amen I say unto you, that one of you shall betray Me. 22 And they were exceeding sorrowful, and began everyone of them to say unto Him, Lord, is it I? 23 And He answered and said, he who dips his hand with Me in the dish shall betray Me. 24 The Son of Man goes as it is written of Him: 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. 25 Then Judas, who betrayed Him, answered and said, Master, is it I? He said unto him, you have said. 26 And as they were eating, Jesus took bread, and blessed it, and broke it, and gave it to the disciples, and said, TAKE, EAT; THIS IS MY BODY. 27 And He took the cup, and gave thanks, and gave it to them, saying, Drink all of it; 28 For This is My Blood of the New Testament, Which is shed for many for the remission of sins. 29 But I say unto you, I will not drink henceforth of this fruit of the vine, until that day when I drink it new with you in My Father's Kingdom. 30 And when they had sung a hymn, they went out into the Mount of Olives. 31 Then said Jesus unto them, All you shall be offended because of Me this night: for it is written, I will smite the Shepherd, and the sheep of the flock shall be scattered abroad. 32 But after I am risen again, I will go before you into Galilee. 33 Peter answered and said unto Him, Though all men shall be offended because of You, yet will I never be offended. 34 Jesus said unto him, Amen I say unto you, that this night, before the cock crow, you shall deny Me thrice. 35 Peter said unto Him, Though I should die with You, yet will I not deny You. Likewise also said all the disciples. 36 Then Jesus came with them unto a place called Gethsemane, and said unto the disciples, Sit here, while I go and pray yonder. 37 And He took with Him Peter and the 2 sons of Zebedee, and began to be sorrowful and very heavy. 38 Then said He unto them, My soul is exceeding sorrowful, even unto death; tarry here, and watch with Me. 39 And He went a little farther, and fell on His Face, and prayed, saying, O My Father, if it be possible, let This Cup pass from Me: nevertheless not as I will, but as You will. 40 And He came unto the disciples, and found them asleep, and said unto Peter, What, could you not watch with Me 1 hour? 41 Watch and pray, that you enter not into temptation: the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak. 42 He went away again the second time, and prayed, saying, O My Father, if this cup may not pass away from Me, unless I drink it, Your Will be done. 43 And He came and found them asleep again; for their eyes were heavy. 44 And He left them, and went away again, and prayed the third time, saying the same words. 45 Then He came to His disciples, and said unto them, Sleep on now, and take your rest; behold, the hour is at hand, and the Son of Man is betrayed into the hands of sinners. 46 Rise, let us be going; behold, he is at hand that betrays Me. 47 And while He yet spoke, lo, judas, one of the 12, came, and with him a great multitude with swords and staves, from the chief priests and elders of the people. 48 Now he who betrayed Him gave them a sign, saying, Whomsoever I shall kiss, that is He; hold Him fast. 49 And forthwith he came to Jesus, and said, Hail, master; and kissed Him. 50 And Jesus said unto him, Friend, wherefore are you come? Then came they, and laid hands on Jesus and took Him. 51 And, behold, one of them who was with Jesus stretched out his hand, and drew his sword, and struck a servant of the high priest's, and smote off his ear. 52 Then said Jesus unto him, Put up again your sword into his place: for all those who take the sword shall perish with the sword. 53 Do you think that I cannot now pray to My Father, and He shall presently give Me more than 12 legions of Angels? 54 But how then shall the Scriptures be fulfilled, that thus it must be? 55 In that same hour said Jesus to the multitudes, Have you come out as against a thief with swords and staves for to take Me? I sat daily with you teaching in the Temple, and you laid no hold on Me. 56 But all this was done, that the Scriptures of the Prophets might be fulfilled. Then all the disciples forsook Him, and fled. 57 And they that had laid hold on Jesus led Him away to Caiaphas the high priest, where the scribes and the elders were assembled. 58 But Peter followed Him afar off unto the high priest's palace, and went in, and sat with the servants, to see the end. 59 Now the chief priests, and elders, and all the council, sought false witness against Jesus, to put Him to death; 60 But found none: yea, though many false witnesses came, yet found they none. At the last came 2 false witnesses, 61 And said, This fellow said, I am able to destroy the Temple of God, and to build it in 3 days. 62 And the high priest arose, and said unto him, Do You answer nothing? What is it that these witness against you? 63 But Jesus held His peace, And the high priest answered and said unto Him, I adjure You by the Living God, that You tell us whether You are the Christ, the Son of God. 64 Jesus said unto him, You have said: nevertheless I say unto you, Hereafter shall you see the Son of Man sitting on The Right Hand of Power, and coming in the Clouds of Heaven. 65 Then the high priest rent his clothes, saying, He has spoken blasphemy; what further need have we of witnesses? Behold, now you have heard His blasphemy. 66 What do you think? They answered and said, He is guilty of death. 67 Then, they spit in His Face, and buffeted Him; and others smote Him with the palms of their hands, 68 Saying, Prophesy unto us, You Christ, who is he that smote You? 69 Now Peter sat without in the palace: and a damsel came unto him, saying, You also were with Jesus of Galilee. 70 But he denied before them all, saying, I know not what you say. 71 And when he had 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 you also are one of them; for your speech betrays you. 74 Then began he to curse and to swear, saying, I know not the Man. And immediately the cock crew. 75 And Peter remembered the Word of Jesus, which He said unto him, Before the cock crow, you shall deny Me thrice. And he went out, and wept bitterly.

MATTHEW 27 The Reverent Bible Edition of the KJV Bible

27 When the morning was come, all the chief priests and elders of the people took counsel against Jesus to put Him to death. 2  And when they had bound Him, they led Him away, and delivered Him to Pontius Pilate the  governor. 3  Then judas, who had betrayed Him, when he saw that he was condemned, repented himself, and brought again the 30 pieces of silver to the chief priests and elders, 4  Saying, I have sinned in that I have betrayed The Innocent Blood. And they said, What is that to us? You see to that. And he cast down the pieces of silver in the Temple, and departed, and went and hanged himself. And the chief priests took the silver pieces, and said, It is not lawful for to put them into the treasury, because it is the price of blood. And they took counsel, and bought with them the potter's field, to bury strangers in. Wherefore that field was called, The field of blood, unto this day. 9 Then was fulfilled that which was spoken by Jeremiah the Prophet, saying, And they took the 30 pieces of silver, the price of Him that was valued, 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, Are You the King of the Jews? And Jesus said unto him, You say. 12 And when He was accused of the chief priests and elders, He answered nothing. 13 Then said Pilate unto Him, do You not hear how many things they witness against You? 14 And He answered him to never a word; insomuch that the governor marveled greatly. 15 Now 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 you that I release unto you? Barabbas, or Jesus Who is called Christ? 18 For he knew that for envy they had delivered Him. 19 When he was set down on the judgment seat, his wife sent unto him, saying, Have you nothing to do with that Just Man; for I have suffered many things this day in a dream because of Him. 20 But the chief priests and elders persuaded the multitude that they should ask Barabbas, and destroy Jesus. 21 The governor answered and said unto them, Whether of the 2 will you that I release unto you? They said, Barabbas. 22 Pilate said unto them, What shall I do then with Jesus Who is called Christ? They all said unto Him, Let Him be crucified. 23 And the governor said, Why, what evil has He done? But they cried out the more, saying, Let Him be crucified. 24 When Pilate saw that he could prevail nothing, but that rather a tumult was made, he took water, and washed his hands before the multitude, saying, I am innocent of the Blood of this Just Person; you see to it. 25 Then answered all the people, and said, His Blood be on us, and on our children. 26 Then he  released Barabbas unto them: and when he had scourged Jesus, he delivered Him to be crucified. 27 Then the soldiers of the governor took Jesus into the common hall, and gathered unto Him the whole band of soldiers. 28 And they stripped Him, and put on Him a scarlet robe. 29 And when they had platted a crown of thorns, they put it upon His Head, and a reed in His Right Hand; and they bowed the knee before Him, and mocked Him, saying, Hail, King of the Jews! 30 And they spit upon Him, and took the reed, and smote Him on the Head. 31 And after that they had mocked Him, they took the robe off from Him, and put His own raiment on Him, and led Him away to crucify Him. 32 And as they came out, they found a man of Cyrene, Simon by name; him they compelled to bear His Cross. 33 And when they had come unto a place called Golgotha, that is to say, a place of a skull, 34 They gave Him vinegar to drink mingled with gall: and when He had tasted thereof, He would not drink. 35 And they crucified Him, and parted His garments, casting lots: that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the Prophet, They parted My garments among them, and upon My vesture did they cast lots. 36 And sitting down they watched Him there; 37 And set up over His Head his accusation written, This Is Jesus The King Of The Jews. 38 Then were there 2 thieves crucified with Him, one on the Right Hand, and another on the Left. 39 And those who passed by reviled Him, wagging their heads, 40 And saying, You Who destroy the Temple, and build it in 3 days, save Yourself. If You are the Son of God, come down from the Cross. 41 Likewise also the chief priests mocking Him, with the scribes and elders, said, 42 He saved others; Himself He cannot save. If He is the King of Israel, let Him now come down from the Cross, and we will believe Him. 43 He trusted in God; let Him deliver Him now, if He will have Him: for He said, I am the Son of God. 44 The thieves also, which were crucified with Him, cast the same in His Teeth. 45 Now from the 6h hour there was darkness over all the land unto the 9th hour. 46 And about the 9th hour Jesus cried with a loud Voice, saying, Eli, Eli, Lama Sabachthani? That is to say, My God, My God, why have You forsaken Me? 47 Some of them that stood there, when they heard that, said, This Man calls for Elijah. 48 And straightway one of them ran, and took a sponge, and filled it with vinegar, and put it on a reed, and gave Him to drink. 49 The rest said, Let be, let us see whether Elijah will come to save Him. 50  Jesus, when He had cried again with a loud Voice, yielded up the Spirit. 51 And, behold, the veil of the Temple was rent in 2 from the top to the bottom; and the earth quaked, and the rocks rent; 52 And the graves were opened; and many bodies of the saints which slept arose, 53 And came out of the graves after His Resurrection, and went into the Holy City, and appeared unto many. 54 Now when the centurion, and those who were with him, watching Jesus, saw the earthquake, and those things that were done, they feared greatly, saying, Truly this was the Son of God. 55 And many women were there beholding afar off, who followed Jesus from Galilee, ministering unto Him; 56 Among which was Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of Jacob and Joses, and the mother of Zebedees children. 57 When the even was come, there came a rich man of Arimathaea, named Joseph, who also himself was Jesus' disciple; 58 He went to Pilate, and begged the Body of Jesus. Then Pilate commanded the Body to be delivered. 59 And when Joseph had taken the Body, he wrapped it in a clean linen cloth, 60 And laid it in his own new tomb, which he had hewn out in the rock: and he rolled a great stone to the door of the sepulcher, and departed. 61 And there was Mary Magdalene, and the other Mary, sitting over against the sepulcher. 62 Now the next day, that followed the day of the preparation, the chief priests and Pharisees came together unto Pilate, 63 Saying, Sir, we remember that that deceiver said, while He was yet alive, After 3 days I will rise again. 64 Command therefore that the sepulcher be made sure until the third day, lest His disciples come by night, and steal Him away, and say unto the people, He is risen from the dead; so the last error shall be worse than the first. 65 Pilate said unto them, You have a watch: go your way, make it as sure as you can. 66 So they went, and made the sepulcher sure, sealing the stone, and setting a watch.

MATTHEW 28 The Reverent Bible Edition of the KJV Bible

28 In the end of the Sabbath, as it began to dawn toward the first day of the week, came Mary Magdalene and the other Mary to see the sepulcher.2 And, behold, there was a great earthquake; for the Angel of the Lord descended from Heaven, and came and rolled back the stone from the door, and sat upon it. His countenance was like lightning, and his raiment white as snow; 4 And for fear of him the keepers shook, and became as dead men. And the Angel answered and said unto the women, Fear not, for I know that you seek Jesus, Who was crucified. 6 He is not here; for He is risen, as He said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay. 7 And go quickly, and tell His disciples that He is risen from the dead; and, behold, He goes before you into Galilee; there shall you see Him; lo, I have told you. 8 And they departed quickly from the sepulcher with fear and great joy; and ran to bring His disciples word. And as they went to tell His disciples, behold, Jesus met them, saying, All hail. And they came and held Him by the Feet, and worshiped Him. 10 Then Jesus said unto them, Be not afraid: go tell My brethren that they go into Galilee, and there shall they see Me. 11 Now when they were going, behold, some of the watch came into the city, and showed unto the chief priests all the things that were done. 12 And when they were assembled with the elders, and had taken counsel, they gave large money unto the soldiers, 13 Saying, Say His disciples came by night, and stole Him away while we slept. 14 And if this come to the governor's ears, we will persuade Him, and secure you. 15 So they took the money, and did as they were taught: and this saying is commonly reported among the Jews until this day. 16 Then the 11 disciples went away into Galilee, into a mountain where Jesus had appointed them. 17 And when they saw Him, they worshiped Him: but some doubted. 18 And Jesus came and spoke unto them, saying, All power is given unto Me in heaven and on earth. 19 Go therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the Name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit; 20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you; and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen.

MARK 1 The Reverent Bible Edition of the KJV Bible

The beginning of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, the Son of God;  As it is written in the Prophets, Behold, I send My messenger before Your Face, which shall prepare Your way before You. 3  The voice of one crying in the wilderness, Prepare the way of the Lord, make His paths straight. 4  John baptized in the wilderness, and preached the baptism of repentance for the remission of sins. And there went out unto him all the land of Judaea, and they of Jerusalem, and were all baptized of him in the river of Jordan, confessing their sins. 6  And John was clothed with camel's hair, and with a girdle of a skin about his loins; and he ate locusts and wild honey; 7  And preached, saying, There comes One mightier than I after me, the latchet of Whose shoes I am not worthy to stoop down and unloose. 8   I indeed have baptized you with water: but He shall baptize you with the Holy Spirit. 9  And it came to pass in those days, that Jesus came from Nazareth of Galilee, and was baptized of John in Jordan. 10 And straightway coming up out of the water, He saw the Heavens opened, and the Spirit like a dove descending upon Him; 11 And there came a Voice from Heaven, saying, You are My Beloved Son, in Whom I am well pleased. 12 And immediately the Spirit drove Him into the wilderness. 13 And He was there in the wilderness 40 days, tempted by satan; and was with the wild beasts; and the Angels ministered to Him. 14 Now after that John was put in prison, Jesus came into Galilee, preaching the Gospel of the Kingdom of God, 15 And saying, The time is fulfilled, and the Kingdom of God is at hand: repent, and believe the Gospel. 16 Now as He walked by the Sea of Galilee, He saw Simon and Andrew his brother casting a net into the sea: for they were fishers. 17 And Jesus said unto them, Come after Me, and I will make you to become fishers of men. 18 And straightway they forsook their nets, and followed Him. 19 And when he had gone a little farther thence, He saw Jacob the son of Zebedee, and John his brother, who also were in the ship mending their nets. 20 And straightway He called them: and they left their father Zebedee in the ship with the hired servants, and went after Him. 21 And they went into Capernaum; and straightway on the Sabbath Day He entered into the synagogue, and taught. 22 And they were astonished at His doctrine: for He taught them as One Who had authority, and not as the scribes. 23 And there was in their synagogue a man with an unclean spirit; and he cried out, 24  Saying, Let us alone; what have we to do with You, Jesus of Nazareth; have You come to destroy us? I know Who You are, the Holy One of God. 25 And Jesus rebuked him, saying, Hold your peace, and come out of him. 26  And when the unclean spirit had torn him, and cried with a loud voice, he came out of him. 27  And they were all amazed, insomuch that they questioned among themselves, saying, What thing is this; what new doctrine is this? For with authority commands He even the unclean spirits, and they obey Him. 28  And immediately His fame spread abroad throughout all the region round about Galilee. 29  And forthwith, when they came out of the synagogue, they entered into the house of Simon and Andrew, with Jacob and John. 30  But Simon's wife's mother lay sick of a fever, and anon they tell Him of her. 31 And He came and took her by the hand, and lifted her up; and immediately the fever left her, and she ministered unto them. 32 And at even, when the sun had set, they brought unto Him all that were diseased, and those who were possessed with devils. 33 And all the city was gathered together at the door. 34 And He healed many that were sick of divers diseases, and cast out many devils; and suffered not the devils to speak, because they knew Him. 35 And in the morning, rising up a great while before day, He went out, and departed into a solitary place, and there prayed. 36  And Simon and they that were with Him followed after Him. 37 And when they had found Him, they said unto Him, All men seek for You. 38 And He said unto them, Let us go into the next towns, that I may preach there also: for therefore came I forth. 39 And He preached in their synagogues throughout all Galilee, and cast out devils. 40 And there came a leper to Him, beseeching Him, and kneeling down to Him, and saying unto Him, If You will, You can make me clean. 41 And Jesus, moved with compassion, put forth His Hand, and touched him, and said unto him, I will; be clean. 42 And as soon as He had spoken, immediately the leprosy departed from him, and he was cleansed. 43 And He straitly charged him, and forthwith sent him away; 44 And said unto him, See you say nothing to any man: but go your way, show yourself to the priest, and offer for your cleansing those things which Moses commanded, for a testimony unto them. 45  But he went out, and began to publish it much, and to blaze abroad the matter, insomuch that Jesus could no more openly enter into the city, but was without in desert places: and they came to Him from every quarter.

MARK 2   The Reverent Bible Edition of the KJV Bible

And again He entered into Capernaum after some days; and it was noised that He was in the house. 2 And straightway many were gathered together, insomuch that there was no room to receive them, no, not so much as about the door: and He preached the word unto them. 3 And they come unto Him, bringing one sick of the palsy, which was borne by 4. 4  And when they could not come nigh unto Him for the press, they uncovered the roof where He was: and when they had broken it up, they let down the bed wherein the sick of the palsy lay. When Jesus saw their faith, He said unto the sick of the palsy, Son, your sins are forgiven you. 6 But there was certain of the scribes sitting there, and reasoning in their hearts, 7 Why does this Man thus speak blasphemies? Who can forgive sins but God only? 8 And immediately when Jesus perceived in His Spirit that they so reasoned within themselves, He said unto them, Why do you reason these things in your hearts? 9 Whether is it easier to say to the sick of the palsy, Your sins are forgiven you; or to say, Arise, and take up your bed, and walk? 10 But that you may know that the Son of Man has power on earth to forgive sins, (He said to the sick of the palsy,) 11 I say unto you, Arise, and take up your bed, and go your way into your house. 12 And immediately he arose, took up the bed, and went forth before them all; insomuch that they were all amazed, and glorified God, saying, We never saw it on this fashion. 13 And He went forth again by the sea side; and all the multitude resorted unto Him, and He taught them. 14 And as He passed by, He saw Levi the son of Alphaeus sitting at the receipt of custom, and said unto him, Follow Me. And he arose and followed Him. 15 And it came to pass, that, as Jesus sat at meat in his house, many publicans and sinners sat also together with Jesus and His disciples: for there were many, and they followed Him. 16 And when the scribes and Pharisees saw Him eat with publicans and sinners, they said unto His disciples, How is it that He eats and drinks with publicans and sinners? 17 When Jesus heard it, He said unto them, Those who are whole have no need of the physician, but those who are sick: I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance. 18 And the disciples of John and of the Pharisees used to fast: and they come and say unto Him, Why do the disciples of John and of the Pharisees fast, but Your disciples fast not? 19 And Jesus said unto them, Can the children of the bride chamber fast, while the Bridegroom is with them?  As long as they have the Bridegroom with them, they cannot fast. 20 But the days will come, when the Bridegroom shall be taken away from them, and then shall they fast in those days. 21 No man also sews a piece of new cloth on an old garment: else the new piece that filled it up takes away from the old, and the rent is made worse. 22 And no man puts new wine into old wine skins; else the new wine bursts the wine skins, and the wine is spilled, and the wine skins will be marred: but new wine must be put into new wine skins. 23 And it came to pass, that He went through the corn fields on the Sabbath Day; and His disciples began, as they went, to pluck the ears of corn. 24 And the Pharisees said unto Him, Behold, why do they on the Sabbath Day that which is not lawful? 25 And He said unto them, Have you never read what David did, when he had need, and was hungry, he, and those who were with him? 26 How he went into the House of God in the days of Abiathar the high priest, and ate the showbread, which is not lawful to eat but for the priests, and gave also to them which were with him? 27 And He said unto them, The Sabbath was made for man, and not man for the Sabbath; 28 Therefore the Son of Man is Lord also of the Sabbath.

MARK 3   The Reverent Bible Edition of the KJV Bible

And He entered again into the synagogue; and there was a man there who had a withered hand. And they watched Him, whether He would heal Him on the Sabbath Day; that they might accuse Him. And He said unto the man who had the withered hand, Stand forth. 4  And He said unto them, Is it lawful to do good on the Sabbath Days, or to do evil; to save life, or to kill? But they held their peace. 5  And when He had looked round about on them with anger, being grieved for the hardness of their hearts, He said unto the man, Stretch forth your hand. And he stretched it out: and his hand was restored whole as the other. 6  And the Pharisees went forth, and straightway took counsel with the Herodians against Him, how they might destroy Him. 7  But Jesus withdrew Himself with His disciples to the sea: and a great multitude from Galilee followed Him, and from Judaea, 8  And from Jerusalem, and from Idumaea, and from beyond Jordan; and they about Tyre and Sidon, a great multitude, when they had heard what great things He did, came unto Him. 9 And He spoke to His disciples, that a small ship should wait on Him because of the multitude, lest they should throng Him. 10 For He had healed many; insomuch that they pressed upon Him for to touch Him, as many as had plagues. 11 And unclean spirits, when they saw Him, fell down before Him, and cried, saying, You are the Son of God. 12 And He straitly charged them that they should not make Him known. 13 And He went up into a mountain, and called unto Him whom He would: and they came unto Him. 14 And He ordained 12, that they should be with Him, and that He might send them forth to preach, 15 And to have power to heal sicknesses, and to cast out devils; 16 And Simon he surnamed Peter; 17 And Jacob the son of Zebedee, and John the brother of Jacob; and he surnamed them Boanerges, which is, The sons of thunder; 18 And Andrew, and Philip, and Bartholomew, and Matthew, and Thomas, and Jacob the son of Alphaeus, and Thaddaeus, and Simon the Canaanite, 19 And judas iscariot, who also betrayed him; and they went into an house. 20 And the multitude came together again, so that they could not so much as eat bread. 21 And when his friends heard of it, they went out to lay hold of Him: for they said, He is beside Himself. 22 And the scribes who came down from Jerusalem said, He has Beelzebub, and by the prince of the devils He casts out devils. 23 And He called them unto Him, and said unto them in parables, How can satan cast out satan? 24 And if a kingdom be divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand. 25 And if a house be divided against itself, that house cannot stand. 26 And if satan rise up against himself, and be divided, he cannot stand, but has an end. 27 No man can enter into a strong man's house, and spoil his goods, unless he will first bind the strong man; and then he will spoil his house. 28 Amen I say unto you, All sins shall be forgiven unto the sons of men, and blasphemies wherewith soever they shall blaspheme; 29  But he who shall blaspheme against the Holy Spirit has never forgiveness, but is in danger of eternal damnation. 30  Because they said, He has an unclean spirit. 31 There came then His brethren and His Mother, and, standing without, sent unto Him, calling Him. 32 And the multitude sat about Him, and they said unto Him, Behold, Your Mother and Your brethren without seek for You. 33 And He answered them, saying, Who is My Mother, or My brethren? 34 And He looked round about on them who sat about Him, and said, Behold My mother and My brethren! 35 For whosoever shall do the will of God, is My brother, and My sister, and Mother.

MARK 4   The Reverent Bible Edition of the KJV Bible

And He began again to teach by the sea side; and there was gathered unto Him a great multitude, so that He entered into a ship, and sat in the sea; and the whole multitude was by the sea on the land. 2  And He taught them many things by parables, and said unto them in His doctrine, 3  Hearken; Behold, there went out a sower to sow; 4 And it came to pass, as he sowed, some fell by the way side, and the fowls of the air came and devoured it up. 5 And some fell on stony ground, where it had not much earth; and immediately it sprang up, because it had no depth of earth; 6 But when the sun was up, it was scorched; and because it had no root, it withered away. 7 And some fell among thorns, and the thorns grew up, and choked it, and it yielded no fruit. 8 And other fell on good ground, and yielded fruit that sprang up and increased; and brought forth, some 30, and some 60, and some 100. 9 And He said unto them, He who has ears to hear, let him hear. 10 And when He was alone, those who were about Him with the 12 asked of Him the parable. 11 And He said unto them, Unto you it is given to know the Mystery of the Kingdom of God; but unto those who are without, all these things are done in parables; 12 That seeing they may see, and not perceive; and hearing they may hear, and not understand; lest at any time they should be converted, and their sins should be forgiven them. 13 And He said unto them, Know you not this parable? and how then will you know any parable? 14 The sower sows the word. 15 And these are they by the way side, where the word is sown; but when they have heard, satan comes immediately, and takes away the word that was sown in their hearts. 16 And these are they likewise which are sown on stony ground; who, when they have heard the word, immediately receive it with gladness; 17 And have no root in themselves, and so endure but for a time; afterward, when affliction or persecution arises for the word's sake, immediately they are offended. 18 And these are they which are sown among thorns; such as hear the word, 19 And the cares of this world, and the deceitfulness of riches, and the lusts of other things entering in, choke the word, and it becomes unfruitful. 20 And these are they which are sown on good ground; such as hear the word, and receive it, and bring forth fruit, some 30-fold, some 60, and some 100. 21 And He said unto them, Is a candle brought to be put under a bushel, or under a bed; and not to be set on a candlestick? 22 For there is nothing hid, which shall not be manifested; neither was anything kept secret, but that it should come abroad. 23 If any man have ears to hear, let him hear. 24 And He said unto them, Take heed what you hear: with what measure you mete, it shall be measured to you: and unto you that hear shall more be given. 25 For he who has, to him shall be given: and he who has not, from him shall be taken even that which he has. 26 And He said, So is the Kingdom of God, as if a man should cast seed into the ground; 27 And should sleep, and rise night and day, and the seed should spring and grow up, he knows not how. 28 For the earth brings forth fruit of herself; first the blade, then the ear, after that the full corn in the ear. 29 But when the fruit is brought forth, immediately he puts in the sickle, because the harvest is come. 30 And He said, Whereunto shall we liken the Kingdom of God; or with what comparison shall we compare it? 31 It is like a grain of mustard seed, which, when it is sown in the earth, is less than all the seeds that be in the earth; 32 But when it is sown, it grows up, and becomes greater than all herbs, and shoots out great branches; so that the fowls of the air may lodge under the shadow of it. 33 And with many such parables He spoke the word unto them, as they were able to hear it. 34 But without a parable He spoke not unto them: and when they were alone, He expounded all things to His disciples. 35 And the same day, when evening had come, He said unto them, Let us pass over unto the other side. 36 And when they had sent away the multitude, they took Him even as He was in the ship. And there were also with Him other little ships. 37 And there arose a great storm of wind, and the waves beat into the ship, so that it was now full. 38 And He was in the hinder part of the ship, asleep on a pillow: and they awoke Him, and said unto Him, Master, care You not that we perish? 39 And He arose, and rebuked the wind, and said unto the sea, Peace, be still. And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm. 40 And He said unto them, Why are you so fearful; how is it that you have no faith? 41 And they feared exceedingly, and said one to another, What manner of Man is this, that even the wind and the sea obey Him?

MARK 5   The Reverent Bible Edition of the KJV Bible

And they came over unto the other side of the sea, into the country of the Gadarenes. 2 And when He came out of the ship, immediately there met Him out of the tombs a man with an unclean spirit, 3 Who had his dwelling among the tombs; and no man could bind him, no, not with chains; 4 Because that he had been often bound with fetters and chains, and the chains had been plucked asunder by him, and the fetters broken in pieces: neither could any man tame him. 5 And always, night and day, he was in the mountains, and in the tombs, crying, and cutting himself with stones. 6 But when he saw Jesus afar off, he ran and worshiped Him, 7 And cried with a loud voice, and said, What have I to do with You, Jesus, Son of the most high God? I adjure You by God, that You torment me not. 8 For He said unto him, Come out of the man, you unclean spirit. 9 And He asked him, What is your name? And he answered, saying, my name is legion: for we are many. 10 And he besought Him much that he would not send them away out of the country. 11 Now there was there nigh unto the mountains a great herd of swine feeding. 12 And all the devils besought Him, saying, Send us into the swine, that we may enter into them. 13 And forthwith Jesus gave them leave. And the unclean spirits went out, and entered into the swine: and the herd ran violently down a steep place into the sea, (they were about 2,000;) and were choked in the sea. 14 And those who fed the swine fled, and told it in the city, and in the country. And they went out to see what it was that was done. 15 And they came to Jesus, and saw him that was possessed with the devil, and had the legion, sitting, and clothed, and in his right mind: and they were afraid. 16 And those who saw it told them how it befell to him that was possessed with the devil, and also concerning the swine. 17 And they began to pray Him to depart out of their coasts. 18 And when He was come into the ship, He who had been possessed with the devil prayed Him that he might be with Him. 19 Howbeit Jesus suffered him not, but said unto him, Go home to your friends, and tell them how great things the Lord has done for you, and has had compassion on you. 20 And he departed, and began to publish in Decapolis how great things Jesus had done for him: and all men marveled. 21 And when Jesus was passed over again by ship unto the other side, much people gathered unto Him: and He was nigh unto the sea. 22 And, behold, there came one of the rulers of the synagogue, Jairus by name; and when he saw Him, he fell at His Feet, 23 And besought Him greatly, saying, My little daughter lies at the point of death: I pray, come and lay Your Hands on her, that she may be healed; and she shall live. 24 And Jesus went with him; and much people followed Him, and thronged Him. 25 And a certain woman, which had an issue of blood 12 years, 26 And had suffered many things of many physicians, and had spent all that she had, and was nothing bettered, but rather grew worse, 27 When she had heard of Jesus, came in the press behind, and touched His garment. 28 For she said, If I may touch but His clothes, I shall be whole. 29 And straightway the fountain of her blood was dried up; and she felt in her body that she was healed of that plague. 30 And Jesus, immediately knowing in himself that virtue had gone out of Him, turned Him about in the press, and said, Who touched My clothes? 31 And His disciples said unto Him, You see the multitude thronging You, and You say, Who touched Me? 32 And He looked round about to see her who had done this thing. 33 But the woman fearing and trembling, knowing what was done in her, came and fell down before Him, and told Him all the truth. 34 And He said unto her, Daughter, your faith has made you whole; go in peace, and be whole of your plague. 35 While He yet spoke, there came from the ruler of the synagogue's house certain which said, Your daughter is dead: why trouble the Master any further? 36 As soon as Jesus heard the word that was spoken, He said unto the ruler of the synagogue, Be not afraid, only believe. 37 And He suffered no man to follow Him, save Peter, and Jacob, and John the brother of Jacob. 38 And He came to the house of the ruler of the synagogue, and saw the tumult, and those who wept and wailed greatly. 39 And when He had come in, He said unto them, Why make you this ado, and weep? The damsel is not dead, but sleeps. 40 And they laughed Him to scorn. But when He had put them all out, He took the father and the mother of the damsel, and those who were with Him, and entered in where the damsel was lying. 41 And He took the damsel by the hand, and said unto her, Talitha cumi; which is, being interpreted, Damsel, I say unto you, arise. 42 And straightway the damsel arose, and walked; for she was of the age of 12 years. And they were astonished with a great astonishment. 43 And He charged them straitly that no man should know it; and commanded that something should be given her to eat.

MARK 6   The Reverent Bible Edition of the KJV Bible

And He went out from thence, and came into His own country; and His disciples follow Him. 2 And when the Sabbath Day had come, He began to teach in the synagogue: and many hearing Him were astonished, saying, From whence has This Man these things? And what wisdom is this, which is given unto Him, that even such mighty works are wrought by His Hands? 3 Is not This the Carpenter, the Son of Mary, the brother of Jacob, and Joses, and of Juda, and Simon; and are not his sisters here with us? And they were offended at Him. But Jesus, said unto them, A prophet is not without honor, but in his own country, and among his own kin, and in his own house. 5 And He could there do no mighty work, save that He laid His Hands upon a few sick folk, and healed them. 6 And He marveled because of their unbelief. And He went round about the villages, teaching. 7 And He called unto Him the 12, and began to send them forth by 2 and 2; and gave them power over unclean spirits; 8 And commanded them that they should take nothing for their journey, save a staff only; no scrip, no bread, no money in their purse; 9 But be shod with sandals; and not put on 2 coats. 10  And He said unto them, In whatsoever place you enter into an house, there abide till you depart from that place. 11 And whosoever shall not receive you, nor hear you, when you depart thence, shake off the dust under your feet for a testimony against them. Amen I say unto you, It shall be more tolerable for Sodom and Gomorrha in the Day of Judgment, than for that city. 12 And they went out, and preached that men should repent. 13 And they cast out many devils, and anointed with oil many that were sick, and healed them. 14 And king Herod heard of Him; (for His Name was spread abroad;) and he said, That John the Baptist was risen from the dead, and therefore mighty works do show forth themselves in Him. 15 Others said, That it is Elijah. And others said, That it is a Prophet, or as one of the Prophets. 16 But when Herod heard thereof, he said, It is John, whom I beheaded: he is risen from the dead. 17 For Herod himself had sent forth and laid hold upon John, and bound him in prison for Herodias' sake, his brother Philip's wife: for he had married her. 18 For John had said unto Herod, It is not lawful for you to have your brother's wife. 19 Therefore Herodias had a quarrel against him, and would have killed him; but she could not; 20 For Herod feared John, knowing that he was a just and holy man, and observed him; and when he heard him, he did many things, and heard him gladly. 21 And when a convenient day was come, that Herod on his birthday made a supper to his lords, high captains, and chief estates of Galilee; 22 And when the daughter of  Herodias came in, and danced, and pleased Herod and those who sat with him, the king said unto the damsel, Ask of me whatsoever you will, and I will give it you. 23 And he swore unto her, Whatsoever you shall ask of me, I will give it you, unto the half of my kingdom. 24 And she went forth, and said unto her mother, What shall I ask? And she said, The head of John the Baptist. 25 And she came in straightway with haste unto the king, and asked, saying, I will that you give me by and by in a charger the head of John the Baptist. 26 And the king was exceeding sorry; yet for his oath's sake, and for their sakes who sat with him, he would not reject her. 27 And immediately the king sent an executioner, and commanded his head to be brought: and he went and beheaded him in the prison, 28 And brought his head in a charger, and gave it to the damsel: and the damsel gave it to her mother. 29 And when his disciples heard of it, they came and took up his corpse, and laid it in a tomb. 30 And the apostles gathered themselves together unto Jesus, and told him all things, both what they had done, and what they had taught. 31 And He said unto them, Come apart into a desert place, and rest a while; for there were many coming and going, and they had no leisure so much as to eat. 32 And they departed into a desert place by ship privately. 33 And the people saw them departing, and many knew Him, and ran afoot thither out of all cities, and outwent them, and came together unto Him. 34 And Jesus, when He came out, saw much people, and was moved with compassion toward them, because they were as sheep not having a shepherd: and He began to teach them many things. 35 And when the day was now far spent, His disciples came unto Him, and said, This is a desert place, and now the time is far passed; 36 Send them away, that they may go into the country round about, and into the villages, and buy themselves bread; for they have nothing to eat. 37 He answered and said unto them, You give them to eat. And they said unto Him, Shall we go and buy 200 denaria of bread, and give them to eat? 38 He said unto them, How many loaves have you? Go and see. And when they knew, they said, 5, and 2 fishes. 39 And He commanded them to make all sit down by companies upon the green grass. 40 And they sat down in ranks, by 100s, and by 50s. 41 And when He had taken the 5 loaves and the 2 fishes, He looked up to Heaven, and blessed, and broke the loaves, and gave them to His disciples to set before them; and the 2 fishes He divided among them all. 42 And they all ate, and were filled. 43 And they took up 12 baskets full of the fragments, and of the fishes. 44 And they that ate of the loaves were about 5,000 men. 45 And straightway He constrained His disciples to get into the ship, and to go to the other side before unto Bethsaida, while He sent away the people. 46 And when He had sent them away, He departed into a mountain to pray. 47 And when evening had come, the ship was in the midst of the sea, and He alone on the land. 48 And He saw them toiling in rowing; for the wind was contrary unto them: and about the 4th watch of the night He came unto them, walking upon the sea, and would have passed by them. 49 But when they saw Him walking upon the sea, they supposed it had been a spirit, and cried out; 50 For they all saw Him, and were troubled. And immediately He talked with them, and said unto them, Be of good cheer: it is I; be not afraid. 51 And He went up unto them into the ship; and the wind ceased: and they were sore amazed in themselves beyond measure, and wondered. 52 For they considered not the miracle of the loaves; for their heart was hardened. 53 And when they had passed over, they came into the land of Gennesaret, and drew to the shore. 54 And when they had come out of the ship, straightway they knew Him, 55 And ran through that whole region round about, and began to carry about in beds those that were sick, where they heard He was. 56 And whithersoever He entered, into villages, or cities, or country, they laid the sick in the streets, and besought Him that they might touch if it were but the border of His garment; and as many as touched Him were made whole.

MARK 7   The Reverent Bible Edition of the KJV Bible

Then the Pharisees, and certain of the scribes, which came from Jerusalem came together unto Him. 2  And when they saw some of His disciples eat bread with defiled, that is to say, with unwashed, hands, they found fault. 3  For the Pharisees, and all the Jews, unless they wash their hands often, eat not, holding the tradition of the elders. 4  And when they come from the market, unless they wash, they eat not. And many other things there are, which they have received to hold, as the washing of cups, and pots, brass vessels, and of tables. 5 Then the Pharisees and scribes asked Him, Why do Your disciples not walk according to the tradition of the elders, but eat bread with unwashed hands? 6  He answered and said unto them, Well has Isaiah prophesied of you hypocrites, as it is written, This people honors Me with their lips, but their heart is far from Me. 7  Howbeit in vain do they worship Me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men. 8  For laying aside the Commandment of God, you hold the tradition of men, as the washing of pots and cups; and many other such like things you do. 9 And He said unto them, Full well you reject the Commandment of God, that you may keep your own tradition. 10  For Moses said, Honor your father and your mother; and, Whoso curses father or mother, let him die the death; 11 But you say, If a man shall say to his father or mother, It is Corban, that is to say, a gift, by whatsoever you might be profited by me; he shall be free. 12 And you suffer him no more to do ought for his father or his mother; 13 Making the Word of God of none effect through your tradition, which you have delivered: and many such like things you do. 14 And when He had called all the people unto Him, He said unto them, Hearken unto Me everyone of you, and understand; 15 There is nothing from without a man, that entering into him can defile him; but the things which come out of him, those are they that defile the man. 16 If any man have ears to hear, let him hear. 17 And when He had entered into the house from the people, His disciples asked Him concerning the parable. 18 And He said unto them, Are you so without understanding also? Do you not perceive, that whatsoever thing from without enters into the man, it cannot defile him; 19 Because it enters not into his heart, but into the belly, and goes out into the draught, purging all meats? 20 And He said,

That which comes out of the man, that defiles the man.

21 For from within, out of the heart of men, proceed evil thoughts, adulteries, fornications, murders,

22 Thefts, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, lasciviousness, an evil eye, blasphemy, pride, foolishness:

23 All these evil things come from within, and defile the man.

24 And from thence He arose, and went into the borders of Tyre and Sidon, and entered into a house, and would have no man know it; but He could not be hid. 25 For a certain woman, whose young daughter had an unclean spirit, heard of Him, and came and fell at His Feet; 26 The woman was a Greek, a Syrophenician by nation; and she besought Him that He would cast forth the devil out of her daughter. 27 But Jesus said unto her, Let the children first be filled: for it is not meet to take the children's bread, and to cast it unto the dogs. 28 And she answered and said unto Him, Yes, Lord; yet the dogs under the table eat of the children's crumbs.  29  And He said unto her, For this saying go thy way; the devil is gone out of your daughter. 30 And when she had come to her house, she found the devil gone out, and her daughter laid upon the bed. 31 And again, departing from the coasts of Tyre and Sidon, He came unto the sea of Galilee, through the midst of the coasts of Decapolis. 32 And they brought unto Him one who was deaf, and had an impediment in his speech; and they beseeched Him to put His Hand upon him. 33 And He took him aside from the multitude, and put His Fingers into his ears, and He spit, and touched his tongue; 34 And looking up to heaven, He sighed, and said unto him, Ephphatha, that is, Be opened. 35 And straightway his ears were opened, and the string of his tongue was loosed, and he spoke plainly.  36 And He charged them that they should tell no man: but the more He charged them, so much the more a great deal did they publish it; 37 And were beyond measure astonished, saying, He has done all things well; He makes both the deaf to hear, and the dumb to speak.

MARK 8   The Reverent Bible Edition of the KJV Bible

8 In those days the multitude being very great, and having nothing to eat, Jesus called His disciples unto Him, and said to them, 2 I have compassion on the multitude, because they have now been with Me 3 days, and have nothing to eat; 3 And if I send them away fasting to their own houses, they will faint by the way; for divers of them came from afar. 4 And His disciples answered Him, From whence can a man satisfy these men with bread here in the wilderness? 5 And He asked them, How many loaves have you? And they said, 7. 6 And He commanded the people to sit down on the ground, and He took the 7 loaves, and gave thanks, and broke, and gave to His disciples to set before them; and they set them before the people. 7 And they had a few small fishes; and He blessed, and commanded to set them also before them. 8 So they ate, and were filled: and they took up of the broken fragments that were left, 7 baskets. 9 And they that had eaten were about 4,000; and He sent them away. 10 And straightway He entered into a ship with His disciples, and came into the parts of Dalmanutha. 11 And the Pharisees came forth, and began to question with Him, seeking of Him a sign from Heaven, tempting Him. 12 And He sighed deeply in His Spirit, and said, Why does this generation seek after a sign? Amen I say unto you, There shall no sign be given unto this generation. 13 And He left them, and entering into the ship again departed to the other side. 14 Now the disciples had forgotten to take bread, neither had they in the ship with them more than one loaf. 15 And He charged them, saying, Take heed, beware of the leaven of the Pharisees, and of the leaven of Herod. 16 And they reasoned among themselves, saying, It is because we have no bread. 17 And when Jesus knew it, He said unto them, Why do you reason, because you have no bread? Do you not perceive yet, neither understand; is your heart yet hardened? 18 Having eyes, do you not see; and having ears, do you not hear; and do you not remember? 19 When I broke the 5 loaves among 5,000, how many baskets full of fragments did you take up? They said to Him, 12. 20 And when the 7 among 4,000, how many baskets full of fragments did you take up? And they said, 7. 21 And he said unto them, How is it that you do not understand? 22 And He came  to Bethsaida; and they brought a blind man unto Him, and besought Him to touch him. 23 And He took the blind man by the hand, and led him out of the town; and when He had spit on his eyes, and put His Hands upon him, He asked him if he saw ought. 24 And he looked up, and said, I see men as trees, walking. 25 After that He put His Hands again upon his eyes, and made him look up: and he was restored, and saw every man clearly. 26 And He sent him away to his house, saying, Neither go into the town, nor tell it to any in the town. 27 And Jesus went out, and His disciples, into the towns of Caesarea Philippi: and by the way He asked His disciples, saying unto them, Whom do men say that I am? 28 And they answered, John the Baptist; but some say, Elijah; and others, One of the prophets.  29 And He said unto them, But Whom say you that I am? And Peter answered and said unto Him, You are the Christ. 30 And He charged them that they should tell no man of Him. 31 And He began to teach them, that the Son of Man must suffer many things, and be rejected of the elders, and of the chief priests, and scribes, and be killed, and after 3 days rise again. 32 And He spoke that saying openly. And Peter took Him, and began to rebuke Him. 33 But when He had turned about and looked on His disciples, He rebuked Peter, saying, Get behind Me, satan: for you savor not the things that be of God, but the things that be of men. 34 And when He had called the people unto Him with His disciples also, He said unto them, Whosoever will come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow Me. 35 For whosoever will save his life shall lose it; but whosoever shall lose his life for My sake and the Gospel's, he  shall save it. 36 For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? 37 Or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul? 38 Whosoever therefore shall be ashamed of Me and of My Words in this adulterous and sinful generation; of him also shall the Son of Man be ashamed, when He comes in the Glory of His Father with the Holy Angels.

MARK 9   The Reverent Bible Edition of the KJV Bible

9 And He said unto them, Amen I say unto you, That there are some of them that stand here, who shall not taste of death, till they have seen the Kingdom of God come with power. 2 And after 6 days Jesus took with Him Peter, and Jacob, and John, and led them up into an high mountain apart by themselves, and He was transfigured before them. 3 And His raiment became shining, exceeding white as snow; so as no fuller on earth can white them. 4 And there appeared unto them Elijah with Moses: and they were talking with Jesus. 5 And Peter answered and said to Jesus, Master, it is good for us to be here: and let us make 3 tabernacles; one for You, and one for Moses, and one for Elias. 6 For he knew not what to say; for they were sore afraid. 7 And there was a cloud that overshadowed them: and a Voice came out of the cloud, saying, This is My Beloved Son: hear Him. 8 And suddenly, when they had looked round about, they saw no man any more, save Jesus only with themselves. 9 And as they came down from the mountain, He charged them that they should tell no man what things they had seen, till the Son of Man was risen from the dead. 10 And they kept that saying with themselves, questioning one with another what the rising from the dead should mean. 11 And they asked Him, saying, Why say the scribes that Elijah must first come? 12 And He answered and told them, Elijah truly comes first, and restores all things; and how it is written of the Son of Man, that He must suffer many things, and be set at naught. 13 But I say unto you, That Elijah is indeed come, and they have done unto him whatsoever they listed, as it is written of him. 14 And when He came to His disciples, He saw a great multitude about them, and the scribes questioning with them. 15 And straightway all the people, when they beheld Him, were greatly amazed, and running to Him saluted Him. 16 And He asked the scribes, What are you  questioning with them? 17 And one of the multitude answered and said, Master, I have brought unto You my son, who has a dumb spirit; 18 And wheresoever he takes him, he tears him; and he foams, and gnashes with his teeth, and pines away; and I spoke to Your disciples that they should cast him out; and they could not. 19 He answered him, and said, O faithless generation, how long shall I be with you; how long shall I suffer you? Bring him to Me. 20 And they brought him unto Him: and when He saw him, straightway the spirit tore him; and he fell on the ground, and wallowed foaming. 21 And He asked his father, How long is it ago since this came unto him? And he said, Of a child. 22 And often times it has cast him into the fire, and into the waters, to destroy him; but if You can do anything, have compassion on us, and help us. 23 Jesus said unto him, If you can believe, all things are possible to him who believes. 24 And straightway the father of the child cried out, and said with tears, Lord, I believe; help mine unbelief. 25 When Jesus saw that the people came running together, He rebuked the foul spirit, saying unto him, dumb and deaf spirit, I charge you, come out of him, and enter no more into him. 26 And the spirit cried, and rent him sore, and came out of him: and he was as one dead; insomuch that many said, He is dead.  27 But Jesus took him by the hand, and lifted him up; and he arose. 28 And when He had come into the house, His disciples asked Him privately, Why could not we cast him out? 29 And He said unto them, This kind can come forth by nothing, but by prayer and fasting. 30 And they departed thence, and passed through Galilee; and He would not that any man should know it. 31 For He taught His disciples, and said unto them, The Son of Man is delivered into the hands of men, and they shall kill Him; and after that He is killed, He shall rise the third day. 32 But they understood not that saying, and were afraid to ask Him. 33 And He came to Capernaum; and being in the house He asked them, What was it that you disputed among yourselves by the way? 34 But they held their peace: for by the way they had disputed among themselves, who should be the greatest. 35 And He sat down, and called the 12, and said unto them, If any man desire to be first, he shall be last of all, and servant of all. 36 And He took a child, and set him in the midst of them, and when He had taken him in His Arms, He said unto them, 37 Whosoever shall receive one of such children in My Name, receives Me, and whosoever shall receive Me, receives not Me, but Him Who sent Me. 38 And John answered Him, saying, Master, we saw one casting out devils in Your Name, and He follows not us: and we forbad him, because he follows not us. 39 But Jesus said, Forbid him not: for there is no man who shall do a miracle in My Name, that can lightly speak evil of Me. 40 For he that is not against us is on our side. 41 For whosoever shall give you a cup of water to drink in My Name, because you belong to Christ, Amen I say unto you, he shall not lose his reward. 42 And whosoever shall offend one of these little ones who believe in Me, it is better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he were cast into the sea. 43 And if your hand offends you, cut it off; it is better for you to enter into life maimed, than having 2 hands to go into hell, into the fire that never shall be quenched; 44 Where their worm dies not, and the fire is not quenched. 45 And if your foot offends you, cut it off: it is better for you to enter halt into life, than having 2 feet to be cast into hell, into the fire that never shall be quenched; 46 Where their worm dies not, and the fire is not quenched. 47 And if your eye offends you, pluck it out; it is better for you to enter into the Kingdom of God with one eye, than having 2 eyes to be cast into hell fire; 48 Where their worm dies not, and the fire is not quenched. 49 For everyone shall be salted with fire, and every sacrifice shall be salted with salt. 50 Salt is good, but if the salt have lost his saltiness, wherewith will you season it? Have salt in yourselves, and have peace one with another.

MARK 10   The Reverent Bible Edition of the KJV Bible

10 And He arose from thence, and came into the coasts of Judaea by the farther side of Jordan; and the people resort unto Him again; and, as He was wont, He taught them again. 2 And the Pharisees came to Him, and asked Him, Is it lawful for a man to put away his wife? Tempting Him. 3 And He answered and said unto them, What did Moses command you? 4 And they said, Moses suffered to write a bill of divorcement, and to put her away. 5 And Jesus answered and said unto them, For the hardness of your heart he wrote you this precept. 6 But from the beginning of the creation God made them male and female. 7 For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and cleave to his wife; 8 And they 2 shall be 1 flesh: so then they are no more 2, but 1 flesh. 9 What therefore God has joined together, let not man put asunder. 10 And in the house His disciples asked Him again of the same matter. 11 And He said unto them, Whosoever shall put away his wife, and marry another, commits adultery against her. 12 And if a woman shall put away her husband, and be married to another, she commits adultery. 13 And they brought young children to Him, that He should touch them; and His disciples rebuked those that brought them. 14 But when Jesus saw it, He was much displeased, and said unto them, Suffer the little children to come unto Me, and forbid them not; for of such is the Kingdom of God. 15 Amen I say unto you, Whosoever shall not receive the Kingdom of God as a little child, He shall not enter therein. 16 And He took them up in His Arms, put His Hands upon them, and blessed them. 17 And when He was gone forth into the way, there came one running, and knelt to Him, and asked Him, Good Master, what shall I do that I may inherit eternal life? 18 And Jesus said unto him, Why do you call me good? There is none good but One, that is, God. 19 You know the commandments, Do not commit adultery, Do not kill, Do not steal, Do not bear false witness, Defraud not, Honor your father and mother. 20 And he answered and said unto Him, Master, all these have I observed from my youth. 21 Then Jesus beholding him loved him, and said unto him, One thing you lack; go your way, sell whatsoever you have, and give to the poor, and you shall have treasure in Heaven; and come, take up the cross, and follow Me. 22 And he was sad at that saying, and went away grieved, for he had great possessions. 23 And Jesus looked round about, and said unto His disciples, How hardly shall those who have riches enter into the Kingdom of God! 24 And the disciples were astonished at His Words. But Jesus answered again, and said unto them, Children, how hard is it for those who trust in riches to enter into the Kingdom of God! 25 It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the Kingdom of God. 26 And they were astonished out of measure, saying among themselves, Who then can be saved? 27 And Jesus looking upon them said, With men it is impossible, but not with God: for with God all things are possible. 28 Then Peter began to say unto Him, Lo, we have left all, and have followed You. 29 And Jesus answered and said, Amen I say unto you, There is no man who has left house, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for My sake, and the Gospel's, 30 But he shall receive 100-fold now in this time, houses, and brethren, and sisters, and mothers, and children, and lands, with persecutions; and in the world to come eternal life. 31 But many that are first shall be last; and the last first. 32 And they were in the way going up to Jerusalem; and Jesus went before them: and they were amazed; and as they followed, they were afraid. And He took again the 12, and began to tell them what things should happen unto Him, 33 Saying, Behold, we go up to Jerusalem; and the Son of Man shall be delivered unto the chief priests, and unto the scribes; and they shall condemn Him to death, and shall deliver Him to the Gentiles; 34 And they shall mock Him, and shall scourge Him, and shall spit upon Him, and shall kill Him; and the third day He shall rise again. 35 And Jacob and John, the sons of Zebedee, come unto Him, saying, Master, we would that You should do for us whatsoever we shall desire. 36 And He said unto them, What would you that I should do for you? 37 They said unto Him, Grant unto us that we may sit, one on Your Right Hand, and the other on Your Left Hand, in Your Glory. 38 But Jesus said unto them, You know not what you ask; can you drink of the cup that I drink of; and be baptized with the baptism that I am baptized with? 39 And they said unto him, We can. And Jesus said unto them, You shall indeed drink of the cup that I drink of; and with the baptism that I am baptized withal shall you be baptized; 40 But to sit on My Right Hand and on My Left Hand is not Mine to give; but it shall be given to them for whom it is prepared. 41 And when the 10 heard it, they began to be much displeased with Jacob and John. 42 But Jesus called them to Him, and said unto them, You know that they which are accounted to rule over the Gentiles exercise lordship over them; and their great ones exercise authority upon them. 43 But so shall it not be among you; but whosoever will be great among you, shall be your minister; 44 And whosoever of you will be the chief, shall be servant of all. 45 For even the Son of Man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give His Life a ransom for many. 46 And they came to Jericho; and as He went out of Jericho with His disciples and a great number of people, blind Bartimaeus, the son of Timaeus, sat by the highway side begging. 47 And when he heard that it was Jesus of Nazareth, he began to cry out, and say, Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me. 48 And many charged him that he should hold his peace; but he cried the more a great deal, Son of David, have mercy on me. 49 And Jesus stood still, and commanded him to be called. And they call the blind man, saying unto him, Be of good comfort, rise; He calls you. 50 And he, casting away his garment, rose, and came to Jesus. 51 And Jesus answered and said unto him, What will you that I should do for you? The blind man said to Him, Lord, that I might receive my sight. 52 And Jesus said unto him, Go your way; your faith has made you whole. And immediately he received his sight, and followed Jesus in the way.

MARK 11   The Reverent Bible Edition of the KJV Bible

11 And when they came nigh to Jerusalem, unto Bethphage and Bethany, at the Mount of Olives, Me sent forth 2 of His disciples, 2 And said unto them, Go your way into the village over against you; and as soon as you have  entered into it, you shall find a colt tied, whereon never man sat; loose him, and bring him. 3 And if any man say unto you, Why do this?  You say that the Lord has need of him; and straightway he will send him hither. 4 And they went their way, and found the colt tied by the door without in a place where 2 ways met; and they loosed him. 5 And certain of those who stood there said unto them, What are you doing, loosing the colt? 6 And they said unto them even as Jesus had commanded: and they let them go. 7 And they brought the colt to Jesus, and cast their garments on him; and He sat upon him. 8 And many spread their garments in the way: and others cut down branches off the trees, and strewed them in the way. 9 And they that went before, and they that followed, cried, saying, Hosanna; Blessed is He Who comes in the Name of the Lord; 10 Blessed be the Kingdom of our father David, that comes in the Name of the Lord; Hosanna in the highest. 11 And Jesus entered into Jerusalem, and into the Temple: and when He had looked round about upon all things, and now the eventide had come, He went out unto Bethany with the 12. 12 And on the morrow, when they were come from Bethany, He was hungry; 13 And seeing a fig tree afar off having leaves, He came, if haply He might find anything thereon; and when He came to it, He found nothing but leaves; for the time of figs was not yet. 14 And Jesus answered and said unto it, No man eat fruit of you hereafter forever. And His disciples heard it. 15 And they come to Jerusalem: and Jesus went into the Temple, and began to cast out them that sold and bought in the Temple, and overthrew the tables of the moneychangers, and the seats of them that sold doves; 16 And would not suffer that any man should carry any vessel through the Temple. 17 And He taught, saying unto them, Is it not written, My House shall be called of all nations the House of prayer? But you have made it a den of thieves. 18 And the scribes and chief priests heard it, and sought how they might destroy Him; for they feared Him, because all the people was astonished at His doctrine. 19 And when evening had come, He went out of the city. 20 And in the morning, as they passed by, they saw the fig tree dried up from the roots. 21 And Peter calling to remembrance said unto Him, Master, behold, the fig tree which You cursed has withered away. 22 And Jesus answering sad unto them, Have faith in God. 23 For Amen I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be removed, and be cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he says shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he says. 24 Therefore I say unto you, Whatsoever things you desire, when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you shall have them. 25 And when you stand praying, forgive, if you have ought against any; that your Father also Who is in Heaven may forgive you your trespasses. 26 But if you do not forgive, neither will your Father Who is in Heaven forgive your trespasses. 27 And they came again to Jerusalem, and as He was walking in the Temple, there came to Him the chief priests, and the scribes, and the elders, 28 And said unto Him, By what authority do You these things; and who gave You this authority to do these things? 29 And Jesus answered and said unto them, I will also ask of you one question, and answer me, and I will tell you by what authority I do these things. 30 The baptism of John, was it from heaven, or of men? Answer Me. 31 And they reasoned with themselves, saying, If we shall say, From Heaven; He will say, Why then did you not believe him? 32 But if we shall say, Of men, they feared the people; for all men counted John, that he was a prophet indeed. 33 And they answered and said unto Jesus, We cannot tell. And Jesus answering said unto them, Neither do I tell you by what authority I do these things.

MARK 12   The Reverent Bible Edition of the KJV Bible

12 And He began to speak unto them by parables. A certain man planted a vineyard, and set an hedge about it, and dug a place for the wine vat, and built a tower, and let it out to husbandmen, and went into a far country. 2 And at the season he sent to the husbandmen a servant, that he might receive from the husbandmen of the fruit of the vineyard. 3 And they caught him, and beat him, and sent him away empty. 4 And again he sent unto them another servant; and at him they cast stones, and wounded him in the head, and sent him away shamefully handled. 5 And again he sent another; and him they killed, and many others; beating some, and killing some. 6 Having yet therefore one son, his well beloved, he sent him also last unto them, saying, They will reverence my son. 7 But those husbandmen said among themselves, This is the heir; come, let us kill him, and the inheritance shall be ours. 8 And they took him, and killed him, and cast him out of the vineyard. 9 What shall therefore the lord of the vineyard do? He will come and destroy the husbandmen, and will give the vineyard unto others. 10 And have you not read this Scripture; The stone which the builders rejected is become the head of the corner; 11 This was the Lord's doing, and it is marvelous in our eyes? 12 And they sought to lay hold on Him, but feared the people: for they knew that He had spoken the parable against them: and they left Him, and went their way. 13 And they send unto Him certain of the Pharisees and of the Herodians, to catch Him in His words. 14 And when they had come, they said unto Him, Master, we know that You are true, and care for no man; for You regard not the person of men, but teach the way of God in truth; Is it lawful to give tribute to Caesar, or not? 15 Shall we give, or shall we not give? But He, knowing their hypocrisy, said unto them, Why tempt Me? Bring Me a denarius, that I may see it. 16 And they brought it. And He said unto them, Whose is this image and superscription? And they said unto Him, Caesar's. 17 And Jesus answering said unto them, Render to Caesar the things that are Caesar's, and to God the things that are God's. And they marveled at Him. ED. The denarius had symbols of emperor worship on it. That explained our Lord's reply: "… to God the things that are God's." 18 Then the Sadducees came unto Him, who say there is no resurrection; and they asked Him, saying, 19 Master, Moses wrote unto us, If a man's brother die, and leave his wife behind him, and leave no children, that his brother should take his wife, and raise up seed unto his brother. 20 Now there were 7 brethren: and the first took a wife, and dying left no seed. 21 And the second took her, and died, neither left he any seed: and the third likewise. 22 And the 7 had her, and left no seed: last of all the woman died also. 23 In the resurrection therefore, when they shall rise, whose wife shall she be of them? For the 7 had her to wife. 24 And Jesus answering said unto them, Do you not therefore err, because you know not the scriptures, neither the Power of God? 25 For when they shall rise from the dead, they neither marry, nor are given in marriage; but are as the Angels who are in Heaven. 26 And as touching the dead, that they rise; have you not read in the Book of Moses, how in the bush God spoke unto Him, saying, I am the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob? 27 He is not the God of the dead, but the God of the living; you therefore do greatly err. 28 And one of the scribes came, and having heard them reasoning together, and perceiving that He had answered them well, asked Him, Which is the first Commandment of all? 29 And Jesus answered him, The first of all the Commandments is, Hear, O Israel; The Lord our God is one Lord; 30 And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind, and with all your strength. This is the first commandment. 31 And the second is like, namely this, You shall love your neighbor as yourself. There is none other Commandment greater than these. 32 And the scribe said unto him, Well, Master, You have said the truth; for there is one God; and there is none other but He; 33 And to love Him with all the heart, and with all the understanding, and with all the soul, and with all the strength, and to love his neighbor as himself, is more than all whole burnt offerings and sacrifices. 34 And when Jesus saw that he answered discreetly, He said unto him, You are not far from the Kingdom of God. And no man after that dared ask Him any question. 35 And Jesus answered and said, while He taught in the Temple, How say the scribes that Christ is the Son of David? 36 For David himself said by the Holy Spirit, The Lord said to my Lord, Sit on My Right Hand, till I make Your enemies Your footstool. 37 David therefore himself calls Him Lord; and whence is He then his Son? And the common people heard Him gladly. 38 And He said unto them in His doctrine, Beware of the scribes, who love to go in long clothing, and love salutations in the marketplaces, 39 And the chief seats in the synagogues, and the uppermost rooms at feasts; 40 Who devour widows' houses, and for a pretense make long prayers; these shall receive greater damnation. 41 And Jesus sat over against the treasury, and beheld how the people cast money into the treasury; and many that were rich cast in much. 42 And there came a certain poor widow, and she threw in 2 mites, which make a farthing. 43 And He called unto Him His disciples, and said unto them, Amen I say unto you, That this poor widow has cast more in, than all those who have cast into the treasury; 44 For they all casted in of their abundance; but she of her want casted in all that she had, even all her living. 

MARK 13   The Reverent Bible Edition of the KJV Bible

13 And as He went out of the Temple, one of His disciples said unto him, Master, see what manner of stones and what buildings are here! 2 And Jesus answering said unto him, Do you see these great buildings? There shall not be left one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down. 3 And as He sat upon the Mount of Olives over against the Temple, Peter and Jacob and John and Andrew asked Him privately, 4 Tell us, when shall these things be; and what shall be the sign when all these things shall be fulfilled? 5 And Jesus answering them began to say, Take heed lest any man deceive you; 6 For many shall come in My Name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many. 7 And when you shall hear of wars and rumors of wars, be not troubled, for such things must needs be; but the end shall not be yet. 8 For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be earthquakes in divers places, and there shall be famines and troubles: these are the beginnings of sorrows. 9 But take heed to yourselves, for they shall deliver you up to councils; and in the synagogues you shall be beaten; and you shall be brought before rulers and kings for My sake, for a testimony against them. 10 And the Gospel must first be published among all nations. 11 But when they shall lead you, and deliver you up, take no thought beforehand what you shall speak, neither do you premeditate; but whatsoever shall be given you in that hour, that you must speak; for it is not you that speak, but the Holy Spirit. 12 Now the brother shall betray the brother to death, and the father the son; and children shall rise up against their parents, and shall cause them to be put to death. 13 And you shall be hated of all men for My Name's sake; but he who shall endure unto the end shall be saved. 14 But when you shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the Prophet, standing where it ought not, (let him who reads understand,) then let those who are in Judaea flee to the mountains; 15 And let him who is on the housetop not go down into the house, neither enter therein, to take anything out of his house; 16 And let him who is in the field not turn back again for to take up his garment. 17 But woe to them that are with child, and to them that give suck in those days! 18 And pray that your flight be not in the winter. 19 For in those days shall be affliction, such as was not from the beginning of the creation which God created unto this time, neither shall be. 20 And unless that the Lord had shortened those days, no flesh should be saved; but for the elect's sake, whom He has chosen, He has shortened the days. 21 And then if any man shall say to you, Lo, here is Christ; or, lo, he is there; believe him not, 22 For false Christs and false prophets shall rise, and shall show signs and wonders, to seduce, if it were possible, even the elect. 23 But take heed; behold, I have foretold you all things. 24 But in those days, after that tribulation, the sun shall be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, 25 And the stars of heaven shall fall, and the powers that are in heaven shall be shaken. 26 And then shall they see the Son of Man coming in the clouds with great power and glory. 27 And then shall He send His Angels, and shall gather together His elect from the 4 winds, from the uttermost part of the earth to the uttermost part of heaven. 28 Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When her branch is yet tender, and puts forth leaves, you know that summer is near; 29 So you in like manner, when you shall see these things come to pass, know that it is nigh, even at the doors. 30 Amen I say unto you, that this generation shall not pass, till all these things be done. 31 Heaven and earth shall pass away; but My Words shall not pass away. 32  But of that day and that hour knows no man, no, not the Angels which are in heaven, neither the Son, but the Father. 33 Take heed, watch and pray, for you know not when the time is. 34 For the Son of Man is as a man taking a far journey, who left his house, and gave authority to his servants, and to every man his work, and commanded the porter to watch. 35 Watch therefore; for you know not when the master of the house comes, at evening, or at midnight, or at the cockcrowing, or in the morning; 36 Lest coming suddenly he find you sleeping. 37 And what I say unto you I say unto all, Watch.

MARK 14   The Reverent Bible Edition of the KJV Bible

14 After 2 days was the feast of the Passover, and of Unleavened Bread; and the chief priests and the scribes sought how they might take Him by craft, and put Him to death. 2 But they said, Not on the feast day, lest there be an uproar of the people. 3 And being in Bethany in the house of Simon the leper, as He sat at meat, there came a woman having an alabaster box of ointment of spikenard very precious; and she broke the box, and poured it on His Head. 4 And there were some who had indignation within themselves, and said, Why was this waste of the ointment made? 5 For it might have been sold for more than 300 denaria, and have been given to the poor. And they murmured against her. 6 And Jesus said, Let her alone; why trouble her? She has wrought a good work on Me. 7 For you have the poor with you always, and whensoever you will you may do them good; but me you have not always. 8 She has done what she could; she is come beforehand to anoint My Body for the burial. 9 Amen I say unto you, Wheresoever this Gospel shall be preached throughout the whole world, this also what she has done shall be spoken of for a memorial of her. 10 And Judas Iscariot, one of the 12, went unto the chief priests, to betray Him unto them. 11 And when they heard it, they were glad, and promised to give him money. And he sought how he might conveniently betray Him. 12 And the first day of Unleavened Bread, when they killed the Passover, His disciples said unto Him, Where will You that we go and prepare that You may eat the Passover? 13 And He sent forth 2 of His disciples, and said unto them, Go into the city, and there a man bearing a pitcher of water  shall meet you; follow him. 14 And wheresoever he shall go in, say to the good man of the house, The Master says, Where is the guest chamber, where I shall eat the Passover with My disciples? 15 And he will show you a large upper room furnished and prepared; there make ready for us. 16 And His disciples went forth, and came into the city, and found just as He had said unto them; and they made ready the Passover. 17 And in the evening He came with the 12. 18 And as they sat and ate, Jesus said, Amen I say unto you, One of you who eats with Me shall betray Me. 19 And they began to be sorrowful, and to say unto Him one by one, Is it I? and another said, Is it I? 20 And He answered and said unto them, It is one of the 12, who dips with Me in the dish. 21 The Son of Man indeed goes, as it is written of Him; but woe to that man by whom the Son of man is betrayed! It were good for that man if he had never been born. 22 And as they ate, Jesus took bread, and blessed, and broke it, and gave to them, and said, TAKE, EAT: THIS IS MY BODY. 23 And He took the cup, and when He had given thanks, He gave it to them: and they all drank of it. 24 And He said unto them, This is My Blood of the New Testament, Which is shed for many.  ED. Does our Blessed Lord have the power to institute the Eucharist to feed our souls, giving us strength to work out our salvation?  Does He have the Love?  A RESOUNDING YES TO BOTH QUESTIONS.   25 Amen I say unto you, I will drink no more of the fruit of the vine, until that day that I drink it new in the Kingdom of God. 26 And when they had sung an hymn, they went out into the Mount of Olives. 27 And Jesus said unto them, All you shall be offended because of Me this night; for it is written, I will smite the Shepherd, and the sheep shall be scattered. 28 But after that I am risen, I will go before you into Galilee. 29 But Peter said unto Him, Although all shall be offended, yet I will not. 30 And Jesus said unto him, Amen I say unto you, That this day, even in this night, before the cock crow twice, you shall deny Me thrice. 31 But he spoke the more vehemently, If I should die with You, I will not deny You in any wise. Likewise also said they all. 32 And they came to a place which was named Gethsemane: and He said to His disciples, Sit here, while I shall pray. 33 And He took with Him Peter and Jacob and John, and began to be sore amazed, and to be very heavy; 34 And said unto them, My soul is exceeding sorrowful unto death; tarry here, and watch. 35 And He went forward a little, and fell on the ground, and prayed that, if it were possible, the hour might pass from Him. 36 And He said, Abba, Father, all things are possible for You; take away this cup from Me: nevertheless not what I will, but what You will. 37 And He came, and found them sleeping, and said unto Peter, Simon, you are sleeping; could you not watch 1 hour? 38 Watch and pray, lest you enter into temptation. The spirit truly is ready, but the flesh is weak. 39 And again He went away, and prayed, and spoke the same words. 40 And when He returned, He found them asleep again, (for their eyes were heavy,) neither did they know what to answer Him. 41 And He came the third time, and said unto them, Sleep on now, and take your rest. It is enough, the hour has come; Behold, the Son of man is betrayed into the hands of sinners. 42 Rise up, let us go; lo, he who betrays Me is at hand. 43 And immediately, while he yet spoke, judas, one of the 12 came, and with him a great multitude with swords and staves, from the chief priests and the scribes and the elders. 44 And he who betrayed Him had given them a token, saying, Whomsoever I shall kiss, that is He; take Him, and lead Him away safely. 45 And as soon as He had come, he went straightway to Him, and said, Master, Master; and kissed Him. 46 And they laid their hands on Him, and took Him. 47 And one of them that stood by drew a sword, and smote a servant of the high priest, and cut off his ear. 48 And Jesus answered and said unto them,  Are you come out, as against a thief, with swords and with staves to take Me? 49 I was daily with you in the temple teaching, and you did nor take Me; but the Scriptures must be fulfilled. 50 And they all forsook Him, and fled. 51 And there followed Him a certain young man, having a linen cloth cast about his naked body; and the young men laid hold on him; 52 And he left the linen cloth, and fled from them naked. 53 And they led Jesus away to the high priest: and with him were assembled all the chief priests and the elders and the scribes. 54 And Peter followed Him afar off, even into the palace of the high priest; and he sat with the servants, and warmed himself at the fire. 55 And the chief priests and all the council sought for witness against Jesus to put Him to death; and found none. 56 For many bare false witness against Him, but their witness agreed not together. 57 And there arose certain, and bare false witness against Him, saying, 58 We heard Him say, I will destroy this Temple that is made with hands, and within 3 days I will build another made without hands. 59 But neither so did their witness agree together. 60 And the high priest stood up in the midst, and asked Jesus, saying, Do You answer nothing; what is it which these witness against You? 61 But He held His peace, and answered nothing. Again the high priest asked Him, and said unto Him, Are You the Christ, the Son of the Blessed? 62 And Jesus said, I am; and you shall see the Son of Man sitting on the Right Hand of Power, and coming in the clouds of heaven. 63 Then the high priest rent his clothes, and said, What need do we have of any further witnesses? 64 You have heard the blasphemy: what do you think? And they all condemned him to be guilty of death. 65 And some began to spit on Him, and to cover His Face, and to buffet Him, and to say unto Him, Prophesy: and the servants struck Him with the palms of their hands. 66 And as Peter was beneath in the palace, there came one of the maids of the high priest; 67 And when she saw Peter warming himself, she looked upon him, and said, And you also were with Jesus of Nazareth. 68 But he denied, saying, I know not, neither understand I what you say. And he went out into the porch; and the cock crew. 69 And a maid saw him again, and began to say to those who stood by, This is one of them. 70 And he denied it again. And a little after, they that stood by said again to Peter, Surely you are one of them: for you are a Galilaean, and your speech agrees thereto. 71 But he began to curse and to swear, saying, I know not this Man of Whom you speak. 72  And the second time the cock crew. And Peter called to mind the Word that Jesus said unto him, Before the cock crow twice, you shall deny Me thrice. And when he thought thereon, he wept.

MARK 15   The Reverent Bible Edition of the KJV Bible

15 And straightway in the morning the chief priests held a consultation with the elders and scribes and the whole council, and bound Jesus, and carried Him away, and delivered Him to Pilate. 2 And Pilate asked Him, Are you the King of the Jews? And He answering said unto them, You say it. 3 And the chief priests accused Him of many things; but He answered nothing. 4 And Pilate asked Him again, saying, Do You answer nothing? Behold how many things they witness against you. 5 But Jesus yet answered nothing; so that Pilate marveled. 6 Now at that feast he released unto them one prisoner, whomsoever they desired. 7 And there was one named Barabbas, who lay bound with them that had made insurrection with him, who had committed murder in the insurrection. 8 And the multitude crying aloud began to desire him to do as he had ever done unto them. But Pilate answered them, saying, Will you that I release unto you the King of the Jews? 10 For he knew that the chief priests had delivered him for envy. 11 But the chief priests moved the people, that he should rather release Barabbas unto them. 12 And Pilate answered and said again unto them, What will you then that I shall do unto Him Whom you call the King of the Jews? 13 And they cried out again, Crucify Him. 14 Then Pilate said unto them, Why, what evil has He done? And they cried out the more exceedingly, Crucify Him. 15 And so Pilate, willing to content the people, released Barabbas unto them, and delivered Jesus, when he had scourged Him, to be crucified. 16 And the soldiers led Him away into the hall, called Praetorium; and they call together the whole band. 17 And they clothed Him with purple, and platted a crown of thorns, and put it about His Head18 And began to salute Him, Hail, King of the Jews! 19 And they smote Him on the Head with a reed, and spat upon Him, and bending their knees worshipped Him. 20 And when they had mocked Him, they took off the purple from Him, and put His own clothes on Him, and led Him out to crucify Him. 21 And they compel one Simon a Cyrenian, who passed by, coming out of the country, the father of Alexander and Rufus, to bear His Cross. 22 And they brought Him unto the place Golgotha, which is, being interpreted, The place of a skull. 23 And they gave Him to drink wine mingled with myrrh: but He received it not. 24 And when they had crucified Him, they parted His garments, casting lots upon them, what every man should take. 25 And it was the third hour, and they crucified Him. 26 And the superscription of His accusation was written over, The King Of The Jews. 27 And with Him they crucified 2 thieves; the one on His Right Hand, and the other on His Left. 28 And the Scripture was fulfilled, which said, And He was numbered with the transgressors. 29 And they that passed by railed on Him, wagging their heads, and saying, Ah, You Who would destroy the Temple, and rebuild it in 3 days, 30 Save Yourself, and come down from the Cross. 31 Likewise also the chief priests mocking said among themselves with the scribes, He saved others; Himself He cannot save. 32 Let Christ the King of Israel descend now from the Cross, that we may see and believe. And those who were crucified with Him reviled Him. 33 And when the 6th hour had come, there was darkness over the whole land until the 9th hour. 34 And at the 9th hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying, Eloi, Eloi, lama sabachthani? which is, being interpreted, My God, My God, why have You forsaken Me? 35 And some of them that stood by, when they heard it, said, Behold, He calls Elijah. 36 And one ran and filled a sponge full of vinegar, and put it on a reed, and gave Him to drink, saying, Let alone; let us see whether Elijah will come to take Him down. 37 And Jesus cried with a loud Voice, and gave up the Spirit. 38 And the veil of the Temple was rent in 2 from the top to the bottom. 39 And when the centurion, who stood over against Him, saw that He so cried out, and gave up the Spirit, he said, Truly This Man was the Son of God. 40 There were also women looking on afar off: among whom was Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of Jacob the less and of Joses, and Salome; 41 (Who also, when He was in Galilee, followed Him, and ministered unto Him;) and many other women who came up with Him unto Jerusalem. 42 And now when evening had come, because it was the preparation, that is, the day before the Sabbath, 43 Joseph of Arimathaea, an honorable counselor, who also waited for the Kingdom of God, came, and went in boldly unto Pilate, and craved the Body of Jesus. 44 And Pilate marveled if He were already dead; and calling unto him the centurion, he asked him whether He had been any while dead. 45 And when he knew it of the centurion, he gave the Body to Joseph. 46 And he bought fine linen, and took Him down, and wrapped Him in the linen, and laid Him in a sepulcher that was hewn out of a rock, and rolled a stone unto the door of the sepulcher. 47 And Mary Magdalene and Mary the mother of Joses beheld where He was laid.

MARK 16   The Reverent Bible Edition of the KJV Bible

16 And when the Sabbath was past, Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of Jacob, and Salome, had bought sweet spices that they might come and anoint Him. 2 And very early in the morning the first day of the week, they came unto the sepulcher at the rising of the sun. And they said among themselves, Who shall roll us away the stone from the door of the sepulcher? 4 And when they looked, they saw that the stone was rolled away: for it was very great. And entering into the sepulcher, they saw a young man sitting on the right side, clothed in a long white garment; and they were sore afraid. 6 And he said unto them, Be not afraid; You seek Jesus of Nazareth, Who was crucified. He is risen; He is not here; behold the place where they laid Him. 7  But go your way, tell His disciples and Peter that He goes before you into Galilee; there shall you see Him, as He said unto you. 8 And they went out quickly, and fled from the sepulcher; for they trembled and were amazed: neither said they anything to any man; for they were afraid. 9 Now when Jesus was risen early the first day of the week, He appeared first to Mary Magdalene, out of whom He had cast 7 devils. 10 And she went and told those who had been with Him, as they mourned and wept. 11 And they, when they had heard that He was alive, and had been seen of her, believed not. 12 After that He appeared in another form unto 2 of them, as they walked, and went into the country. 13 And they went and told it unto the residue; neither believed they them. 14 Afterward He appeared unto the 11 as they sat at meat, and upbraided them with their unbelief and hardness of heart, because they believed not those who had seen Him after He was risen. 15 And He said unto them, Go into all the world, and preach the Gospel to every creature. 16 He who believes and is baptized shall be saved; but he who believes not shall be damned. 17 And these signs shall follow those who believe; In My Name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; 18 They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover. 19 So then after the Lord had spoken unto them, He was received up into Heaven, and sat on the Right Hand of God. 20 And they went forth, and preached everywhere, the Lord working with them, and confirming the word with signs following. Amen.

1 Forasmuch as many have taken in hand to set forth in order a declaration of those things which are most surely believed among us, Even as they delivered them unto us, which from the beginning were eyewitnesses, and ministers of the word; 3 It seemed good to me also, having had perfect understanding of all things from the very first, to write unto you in order, most excellent Theophilus, 4 That you might know the certainty of those things, wherein you have been instructed. 5 There was in the days of Herod, the king of Judaea, a certain priest named Zacharias, of the course of Abia; and his wife was of the daughters of Aaron, and her name was Elisabeth. 6 And they were both righteous before God, walking in all the commandments and ordinances of the Lord blameless. 7 And they had no child, because Elisabeth was barren, and they both were now well stricken in years. 8 And it came to pass, that while he executed the priest's office before God in the order of his course, 9 According to the custom of the priest's office, his lot was to burn incense when he went into the Temple of the Lord. 10 And the whole multitude of the people were praying without at the time of incense. 11 And there appeared unto him an Angel of the Lord standing on the right side of the altar of incense. 12 And when Zacharias saw him, he was troubled, and fear fell upon him. 13 But the Angel said unto him, Fear not, Zacharias, for your prayer is heard; and your wife Elisabeth shall bear you a son, and you shall call his name John. 14 And you shall have joy and gladness; and many shall rejoice at his birth. 15 For he shall be great in the Sight of the Lord, and shall drink neither wine nor strong drink; and he shall be filled with the Holy Spirit, even from his mother's womb. 16 And many of the children of Israel shall he turn to the Lord their God. 17 And he shall go before Him in the spirit and power of Elijah, to turn the hearts of the fathers to the children, and the disobedient to the wisdom of the just; to make ready a people prepared for the Lord. 18 And Zacharias said unto the Angel, Whereby shall I know this? For I am an old man, and my wife well stricken in years. 19 And the Angel answering said unto him, I am Gabriel, who stands in the Presence of God; and am sent to speak unto you, and to show you these glad tidings. 20 And, behold, you shall be dumb, and not able to speak, until the day that these things shall be performed, because you believe not my words, which shall be fulfilled in their season. 21 And the people waited for Zacharias, and marveled that he tarried so long in the Temple. 22 And when he came out, he could not speak unto them: and they perceived that he had seen a vision in the Temple; for he beckoned unto them, and remained speechless. 23 And it came to pass, that, as soon as the days of his ministration were accomplished, he departed to his own house. 24 And after those days his wife Elisabeth conceived, and hid herself 5 months, saying, 25 Thus has the Lord dealt with me in the days wherein He looked on me, to take away my reproach among men. 26 And in the 6th month the Angel Gabriel was sent from God unto a city of Galilee, named Nazareth, 27 To a Virgin espoused to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David; and the Virgin's name was Mary. 28 And the Angel came in unto her, and said, Hail, you that are highly favored,* the Lord is with You. Blessed are You among women.  *GREEK: Full of Grace  29 And when She saw him, She was troubled at his saying, and cast in Her mind what manner of salutation this should be. 30 And the Angel said unto Her, Fear not, Mary, for You have found favor with God. 31 And, Behold, You shall conceive in Your womb, and bring forth a Son, and shall call His Name Jesus. 32 He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the Most High, and the Lord God shall give unto Him the throne of His father David. 33 And He shall reign over the house of Jacob forever; and of His Kingdom there shall be no end. 34 Then said Mary unto the Angel, How shall this be, seeing I know not a man? 35 And the Angel answered and said unto Her, The Holy Spirit shall come upon You, and the power of the Most High shall overshadow you; therefore also That Holy One Which shall be born of You shall be called the Son of God. 36 And, behold, Your cousin Elisabeth, she has also conceived a son in her old age, and this is the sixth month with her, who was called barren. 37 For with God nothing shall be impossible. (An incorrect translation. A better translation would be: ...Every Spoken Word of God is Absolutely Certain of Being Fulfilled.) 38 And Mary said, Behold the handmaid of the Lord; be it unto Me according to your word. And the Angel departed from Her. 39 And Mary arose in those days, and went into the hill country with haste, into a city of Judah; 40 And entered into the house of Zacharias, and saluted Elisabeth. 41 And it came to pass, that, when Elisabeth heard the salutation of Mary, the babe leaped in her womb; and Elisabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit; 42 And she spoke out with a loud voice, and said, Blessed are You among women, and Blessed is the Fruit of Your womb. 43 And whence is this to me, that the Mother of my Lord should come to me? 44 For, lo, as soon as the voice of Your salutation sounded in mine ears, the babe leaped in my womb for joy. 45 And blessed is She who believed; for there shall be a performance of those things which were told Her from the Lord.

46 And Mary said, My soul magnifies the Lord,

47 And My spirit has rejoiced in God My Savior.*

48 For He has regarded the low estate of His handmaiden; for, 

Behold, from henceforth all generations shall call Me blessed.

49 For He Who is mighty has done to Me great things; and Holy is His Name.

50 And His Mercy is on those who fear Him from generation to generation.

51 He has showed strength with His Arm; 

He has scattered the proud in the imagination of their hearts.

52 He has put down the mighty from their seats, and exalted them of low degree.

53 He has filled the hungry with good things; and the rich He has sent empty away.

54 He has helped His servant Israel, in remembrance of His Mercy;

55 As He spoke to our fathers, to Abraham, and to his seed forever.

56 And Mary abode with her about 3 months, and returned to Her own house. 57 Now Elisabeth's full time came that she should be delivered; and she brought forth a son. 58 And her neighbors and her cousins heard how the Lord had showed great mercy upon her; and they rejoiced with her. 59 And it came to pass, that on the 8th day they came to circumcise the child; and they called him Zacharias, after the name of his father. 60 And his mother answered and said, Not so; but he shall be called John. 61 And they said unto her, There is none of your kindred who are called by this name. 62 And they made signs to his father, how he would have him called. 63 And he asked for a writing table, and wrote, saying, His name is John. And they marveled all. 64 And his mouth was opened immediately, and his tongue loosed, and he spoke, and praised God. 65 And fear came on all who dwelt round about them: and all these sayings were noised abroad throughout all the hill country of Judaea. 66 And all those who heard them laid them up in their hearts, saying, What manner of child shall this be! And the Hand of the Lord was with him. ;67 And his father Zacharias was filled with the Holy Spirit, and prophesied, saying:

68 Blessed be the Lord God of Israel; for He has visited and redeemed His people,

69 And has raised up an horn of salvation for us in the house of His servant David;

70 As He spoke by the mouth of His Holy Prophets,

which have been since the world began;

71 That we should be saved from our enemies, and from the hand of all who hate us;

72 To perform the mercy promised to our fathers, and to remember His Holy Covenant;

73 The oath which He swore to our father Abraham,

74 That He would grant unto us, that we being delivered out of the hand of our enemies

might serve Him without fear,

75 In holiness and righteousness before Him, all the days of our life.

76 And you, child, shall be called the Prophet of the Most High;

for you shall go before the Face of the Lord to prepare His ways;

77 To give knowledge of salvation unto His people by the remission of their sins,

78 Through the Tender Mercy of our God; whereby

the dayspring from on high has visited us,

79 To give light to those who sit in darkness and in the shadow of death,

to guide our feet into the way of peace.

80 And the child grew, and waxed strong in spirit, and was in the deserts till the day of his showing unto Israel

And it came to pass in those days, that there went out a decree from Caesar Augustus that all the world should be taxed. 2 (And this taxing was first made when Cyrenius was governor of Syria.) 3 And all went to be taxed, everyone into his own city. 4 And Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, into Judaea, unto the city of David, which is called Bethlehem; (because he was of the house and lineage of David) To be taxed with Mary his espoused wife, being great with Child. 6 And so it was, that, while they were there, the days were accomplished that She should be delivered. 7 And She brought forth Her Firstborn Son, and wrapped Him in swaddling clothes, and laid Him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn. 8 And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. 9 And, Behold, the Angel of the Lord came upon them, and the Glory of the Lord shone round about them; and they were sore afraid. 10 And the Angel said unto them, Fear not; for, behold, I bring you Good Tidings of Great Joy, which shall be to all people. 11 For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, Who is Christ the Lord. 12 And this shall be a sign unto you; You shall find the Babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger. 13 And suddenly there was with the Angel a multitude of the Heavenly Host praising God, and saying, 14 Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men. 15 And it came to pass, as the Angels had gone away from them into heaven, the shepherds said one to another, Let us now go even unto Bethlehem, and see this thing which is come to pass, which the Lord has made known unto us. 16 And they came with haste, and found Mary, and Joseph, and the Babe lying in a manger. 17 And when they had seen, they made known abroad the saying which was told them concerning this Child. 18 And all those who heard it wondered at those things which were told them by the shepherds. 19 But Mary kept all these things, and pondered them in Her heart. 20 And the shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all the things that they had heard and seen, as it was told unto them. 21 And when 8 days were accomplished for the circumcising of the Child, His Name was called Jesus, which was so named of the Angel before He was conceived in the womb. 22 And when the days of Her purification according to the Law of Moses were accomplished, they brought Him to Jerusalem, to present Him to the Lord; 23 (As it is written in the Law of the Lord, Every male that opens the womb shall be called holy to the Lord;) 24 And to offer a sacrifice according to that which is said in the Law of the Lord, A pair of turtledoves, or 2 young pigeons. 25 And, behold, there was a man in Jerusalem, whose name was Simeon; and the same man was just and devout, waiting for the consolation of Israel: and the Holy Spirit was upon him. 26 And it was revealed unto him by the Holy Spirit, that he should not see death, before he had seen the Lord's Christ. 27 And he came by the Spirit into the Temple: and when the parents brought in the Child Jesus, to do for Him after the custom of the law, 28 Then he took Him up in his arms, and blessed God, and said, 29 Lord, now let Your servant depart in peace, according to Your Word, 30 For my eyes have seen Your Salvation, 31 Which You have prepared before the face of all people; 32 A light to lighten the Gentiles, and the Glory of Your people Israel. 33 And Joseph and His Mother marveled at those things which were spoken of Him. 34 And Simeon blessed them, and said unto Mary His Mother, Behold, this Child is set for the fall and rising again of many in Israel; and for a sign which shall be spoken against; 35 (Yes, a sword shall pierce through Your own soul also,) that the thoughts of many hearts may be revealed. 36 And there was one Anna, a Prophetess, the daughter of Phanuel, of the tribe of Aser; she was of a great age, and had lived with a husband 7 years from her virginity; 37 And she was a widow of about 84 years, who departed not from the Temple, but served God with fastings and prayers night and day. 38 And she coming in that instant gave thanks likewise unto the Lord, and spoke of Him to all those who looked for redemption in Jerusalem. 39 And when they had performed all things according to the Law of the Lord, they returned into Galilee, to their own city Nazareth. 40 And the Child grew, and waxed strong in spirit, filled with wisdom: and the Grace of God was upon Him. 41 Now His parents went to Jerusalem every year at the feast of the Passover. 42 And when He was 12 years old, they went up to Jerusalem after the custom of the feast. 43 And when they had fulfilled the days, as they returned, the Child Jesus tarried behind in Jerusalem; and Joseph and His Mother knew not of it. 44 But they, supposing Him to have been in the company, went a day's journey; and they sought Him among their kinsfolk and acquaintance. 45 And when they found Him not, they turned back again to Jerusalem, seeking Him. 46 And it came to pass, that after 3 days they found Him in the Temple, sitting in the midst of the doctors, both hearing them, and asking them questions. 47 And all that heard Him were astonished at His understanding and answers. 48 And when they saw Him, they were amazed: and His Mother said unto Him, Son, why have You thus dealt with us? Behold, Your father and I have sought You sorrowing. 49 And He said unto them, How is it that you sought Me? Did you not know that I must be about My Father's business? 50 And they understood not the saying which He spoke unto them. 51 And He went down with them, and came to Nazareth, and was subject unto them; but His Mother kept all these sayings in Her heart. 52 And Jesus increased in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and man.

3 Now in the 15th year of the reign of Tiberius Caesar, Pontius Pilate being governor of Judaea, and Herod being tetrarch of Galilee, and his brother Philip tetrarch of Ituraea and of the region of Trachonitis, and Lysanias the tetrarch of Abilene, 2 Annas and Caiaphas being the high priests, the Word of God came unto John the son of Zacharias in the wilderness. 3 And he came into all the country about Jordan, preaching the Baptism of Repentance for the remission of sins; 4 As it is written in the book of the words of Isaiah the Prophet, saying, The voice of one crying in the wilderness, Prepare the way of the Lord, make His paths straight. 5 Every valley shall be filled, and every mountain and hill shall be brought low; and the crooked shall be made straight, and the rough ways shall be made smooth; 6 And all flesh shall see the Salvation of God. 7 Then said he to the multitude that came forth to be baptized of him, O generation of vipers, who has warned you to flee from the Wrath to come? 8 Bring forth therefore fruits worthy of repentance, and begin not to say within yourselves, We have Abraham to our father: for I say unto you, That God is able of these stones to raise up children unto Abraham. 9 And now also the ax is laid unto the root of the trees; every tree therefore that brings not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. 10 And the people asked him, saying, What shall we do then? 11 He answered and said unto them, He that has 2 coats, let him impart to him who has none; and he who has meat, let him do likewise. 12 Then came also publicans to be baptized, and said unto him, Master, what shall we do? 13 And he said unto them, Exact no more than that which is appointed you. 14 And the soldiers likewise demanded of him, saying, And what shall we do? And he said unto them, Do violence to no man, neither accuse any falsely; and be content with your wages. 15 And as the people were in expectation, and all men mused in their hearts of John, whether he were the Christ, or not; 16 John answered, saying unto them all, I indeed baptize you with water; but One mightier than I comes, the latchet of Whose shoes I am not worthy to unloose. He shall baptize you with the Holy Spirit and with fire; 17 Whose fan is in His Hand, and He will thoroughly purge His floor, and will gather the wheat into His garner; but the chaff He will burn with fire unquenchable. 18 And many other things in his exhortation he preached unto the people. 19 But Herod the tetrarch, being reproved by him for Herodias his brother Philip's wife, and for all the evils which Herod had done, 20 Added yet this above all, that he shut up John in prison. 21 Now when all the people were baptized, it came to pass, that Jesus also being baptized, and praying, the Heaven was opened, 22 And the Holy Spirit descended in a bodily shape like a dove upon Him, and a Voice came from Heaven, Which said, You are My Beloved Son; in You I am well pleased. 23 And Jesus Himself began to be about 30 years of age, being (as was supposed) the Son of Joseph, which was the son of Heli, 24 Which was the son of Matthat, which was the son of Levi, which was the son of Melchi, which was the son of Janna, which was the son of Joseph, 25 Which was the son of Mattathias, which was the son of Amos, which was the son of Naum, which was the son of Esli, which was the son of Nagge, 26 Which was the son of Maath, which was the son of Mattathias, which was the son of Semei, which was the son of Joseph, which was the son of Juda, 27 Which was the son of Joanna, which was the son of Rhesa, which was the son of Zorobabel, which was the son of Salathiel, which was the son of Neri, 28 Which was the son of Melchi, which was the son of Addi, which was the son of Cosam, which was the son of Elmodam, which was the son of Er, 29 Which was the son of Jose, which was the son of Eliezer, which was the son of Jorim, which was the son of Matthat, which was the son of Levi, 30 Which was the son of Simeon, which was the son of Juda, which was the son of Joseph, which was the son of Jonan, which was the son of Eliakim, 31 Which was the son of Melea, which was the son of Menan, which was the son of Mattatha, which was the son of Nathan, which was the son of David, 32 Which was the son of Jesse, which was the son of Obed, which was the son of Booz, which was the son of Salmon, which was the son of Naasson, 33 Which was the son of Aminadab, which was the son of Aram, which was the son of Esrom, which was the son of Phares, which was the son of Juda, 34 Which was the son of Jacob, which was the son of Isaac, which was the son of Abraham, which was the son of Thara, which was the son of Nachor, 35 Which was the son of Saruch, which was the son of Ragau, which was the son of Phalec, which was the son of Heber, which was the son of Sala, 36 Which was the son of Cainan, which was the son of Arphaxad, which was the son of Sem, which was the son of Noe, which was the son of Lamech, 37 Which was the son of Mathusala, which was the son of Enoch, which was the son of Jared, which was the son of Maleleel, which was the son of Cainan, 38 Which was the son of Enos, which was the son of Seth, which was the son of Adam, which was the Son of God.

4 And Jesus being full of the Holy Spirit returned from Jordan, and was led by the Spirit into the wilderness, 2 Being 40 days tempted of the devil. And in those days He ate nothing: and when they were ended, He afterward hungered. 3 And the devil said unto Him, If You are the Son of God, command this stone that it be made bread. 4 And Jesus answered him, saying, It is written, That man shall not live by bread alone, but by every Word of God. 5 And the devil, taking him up into an high mountain, showed unto Him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time. And the devil said unto Him, All this power will I give You, and the glory of them: for that is delivered unto me; and to whomsoever I will I give it. If You therefore will worship me, all shall be Yours. 8 And Jesus answered and said unto him, Get behind Me, satan: for it is written, you shall worship the Lord your God, and Him only shall you serve. 9 And he brought Him to Jerusalem, and set Him on a pinnacle of the Temple, and said unto Him, If You are the Son of God, cast Yourself down from hence; 10 For it is written, He shall give His Angels charge over you, to keep you; 11 And in their hands they shall bear you up, lest at any time you dash your foot against a stone. 12 And Jesus answering said unto him, It is said, you shall not tempt the Lord your God. 13 And when the devil had ended all the temptation, he departed from Him for a season. 14 And Jesus returned in the power of the Spirit into Galilee: and there a fame of Him went out through all the region round about. 15 And He taught in their synagogues, being glorified of all. 16 And He came to Nazareth, where He had been brought up: and, as His custom was, He went into the synagogue on the Sabbath Day, and stood up to read.  17 And there was delivered unto Him the scroll of the Prophet Isaiah. And when He had opened the scroll, He found the place where it was written, 18 The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me, because He has anointed Me to preach the Gospel to the poor; He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty those who are bruised, 19 To preach the acceptable Year of the Lord. 20 And He closed the scroll, and He gave it again to the minister, and sat down. And the eyes of all those who were in the synagogue were fastened on Him. 21 And He began to say unto them, This day is this Scripture fulfilled in your ears. 22 And all bare Him witness, and wondered at the Gracious Words which proceeded out of His Mouth. And they said, Is not This Joseph's Son? 23 And He said unto them, You will surely say unto Me this proverb, Physician, heal yourself: whatsoever we have heard done in Capernaum, do also here in Your country. 24 And He said, Amen I say unto you, No prophet is accepted in his own country. 25 But I tell you of a truth, many widows were in Israel in the days of Elijah, when the heaven was shut up 3 years and 6 months, when great famine was throughout all the land; 26 But unto none of them was Elijah sent, save unto Sarepta, a city of Sidon, unto a woman that was a widow. 27 And many lepers were in Israel in the time of Elisha the prophet; and none of them was cleansed, saving Naaman the Syrian. 28 And all those in the synagogue, when they heard these things, were filled with wrath, 29 And rose up, and thrust Him out of the city, and led Him unto the brow of the hill whereon their city was built, that they might cast Him down headlong. 30 But He passing through the midst of them went His way, 31 And came down to Capernaum, a city of Galilee, and taught them on the Sabbath Days. 32 And they were astonished at His doctrine: for His word was with power. 33 And in the synagogue there was a man, who had a spirit of an unclean devil, and cried out with a loud voice, 34 Saying, Let us alone; what have we to do with You, Jesus of Nazareth? Have You come to destroy us? I know Who You are; the Holy One of God. 35 And Jesus rebuked him, saying, Hold your peace, and come out of him. And when the devil had thrown him in the midst, he came out of him, and hurt him not. 36 And they were all amazed, and spoke among themselves, saying, What a word is this, for with authority and power He commands the unclean spirits, and they come out. 37 And the fame of Him went out into every place of the country round about. 38 And He arose out of the synagogue, and entered into Simon's house. And Simon's wife's mother was taken with a great fever; and they besought Him for her. 39 And He stood over her, and rebuked the fever; and it left her: and immediately she arose and ministered unto them. 40 Now when the sun was setting, all they that had any sick with divers diseases brought them unto Him; and He laid His Hands on everyone of them, and healed them. 41 And devils also came out of many, crying out, and saying, You are Christ the Son of God. And He rebuking them suffered them not to speak: for they knew that He was Christ. 42 And when it was day, He departed and went into a desert place: and the people sought Him, and came unto Him, and stayed Him, that He should not depart from them. 43 And He said unto them, I must preach the Kingdom of God to other cities also: for therefore am I sent. 44 And He preached in the synagogues of Galilee.

5 And it came to pass, that, as the people pressed upon Him to hear the Word of God, He stood by the lake of Gennesaret, 2 And saw 2 ships standing by the lake; but the fishermen were gone out of them, and were washing their nets. And He entered into one of the ships, which was Simon's, and prayed him that he would thrust out a little from the land. And He sat down, and taught the people out of the ship. 4 Now when He had left speaking, He said unto Simon, Launch out into the deep, and let down your nets for a draught. 5 And Simon answering said unto Him, Master, we have toiled all the night, and have taken nothing; nevertheless at Your Word I will let down the net. 6 And when they had this done, they enclosed a great multitude of fishes: and their net broke. 7 And they beckoned unto their partners, who were in the other ship, that they should come and help them. And they came, and filled both the ships, so that they began to sink. 8 When Simon Peter saw it, he fell down at Jesus' knees, saying, Depart from me; for I am a sinful man, O Lord. 9 For he was astonished, and all that were with him, at the draught of the fishes which they had taken; 10 And so was also Jacob, and John, the sons of Zebedee, which were partners with Simon. And Jesus said unto Simon, Fear not; from henceforth you shall catch men. 11 And when they had brought their ships to land, they forsook all, and followed Him. 12 And it came to pass, when He was in a certain city, behold a man full of leprosy: who seeing Jesus fell on his face, and besought Him, saying, 

                                                                Lord, if You will, You can make me clean. 

13 And He put forth His Hand, and touched him, saying, I will; be  clean. And immediately the leprosy departed from him. 14 And He charged him to tell no man; but go, and show yourself to the priest, and offer for your cleansing, according as Moses commanded, for a testimony unto them. 15 But so much the more went there a fame abroad of Him: and great multitudes came together to hear, and to be healed by Him of their infirmities. 16 And He withdrew Himself into the wilderness, and prayed. 17 And it came to pass on a certain day, as He was teaching, that there were Pharisees and doctors of the law sitting by, which were come out of every town of Galilee, and Judaea, and Jerusalem: and the Power of the Lord was present to heal them. 18 And, behold, men brought in a bed a man which was taken with a palsy; and they sought means to bring Him in, and to lay him before Him. 19 And when they could not find by what way they might bring him in because of the multitude, they went upon the housetop, and let him down through the tiling with his couch into the midst before Jesus. 20 And when He saw their faith, He said unto him, Man, your sins are forgiven you. 21 And the scribes and the Pharisees began to reason, saying, Who is this Who speaks blasphemies? Who can forgive sins, but God alone? 22 But when Jesus perceived their thoughts, He answering said unto them, What reason you in your hearts? 23 Whether is easier, to say, Your sins be forgiven you; or to say, Rise up and walk? 24 But that you may know that the Son of Man has power upon earth to forgive sins, (He said unto the sick of the palsy,) I say unto you, Arise, and take up your couch, and go into your house. 25 And immediately he rose up before them, and took up that whereon he lay, and departed to his own house, glorifying God. 26 And they were all amazed, and they glorified God, and were filled with fear, saying, We have seen strange things today. 27 And after these things He went forth, and saw a publican, named Levi, sitting at the receipt of custom: and He said unto him, Follow Me. 28 And he left all, rose up, and followed Him. 29 And Levi made Him a great feast in his own house: and there was a great company of publicans and of others that sat down with them. 30 But their scribes and Pharisees murmured against His disciples, saying, Why do You eat and drink with publicans and sinners? 31 And Jesus answering said unto them, Those who are whole need not a physician; but those who are sick. 32 I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance. 33 And they said unto Him, Why do the disciples of John fast often, and make prayers, and likewise the disciples of the Pharisees; but Yours eat and drink? 34 And He said unto them, Can you make the children of the bride chamber fast, while the Bridegroom is with them? 35 But the days will come, when the Bridegroom shall be taken away from them, and then shall they fast in those days. 36 And He spoke also a parable unto them; No man puts a piece of a new garment upon an old; if otherwise, then both the new makes a rent, and the piece that was taken out of the new agrees not with the old. 37 And no man puts new wine into old wine skins; else the new wine will burst the wine skins, and be spilled, and the wine skins shall perish. 38 But new wine must be put into new wine skins; and both are preserved. 39 No man also having drunk old wine straightway desires new, for he said, The old is better.

6 And it came to pass on the second Sabbath after the first, that He went through the corn fields; and His  disciples plucked the ears of corn, and ate, rubbing them in their hands. 2 And certain of the Pharisees said unto them, Why do you that which is not lawful to do on the Sabbath Days? And Jesus answering them said, Have you not read so much as this, what David did, when himself was an hungred, and they which were with him; 4 How he went into the House of God, and took and ate the showbread, and gave also to them that were with him; which it is not lawful to eat but for the priests alone? 5 And He said unto them, That the Son of Man is Lord also of the Sabbath. 6 And it came to pass also on another Sabbath, that He entered into the synagogue and taught; and there was a man whose right hand was withered. And the scribes and Pharisees watched Him, whether He would heal on the Sabbath Day; that they might find an accusation against Him. 8 But He knew their thoughts, and said to the man which had the withered hand, Rise up, and stand forth in the midst. And he arose and stood forth. 9 Then said Jesus unto them, I will ask you one thing; Is it lawful on the Sabbath Days to do good, or to do evil; to save life, or to destroy it? 10 And looking round about upon them all, He said unto the man, Stretch forth your hand. And he did so: and his hand was restored whole as the other. 11 And they were filled with madness; and communed one with another what they might do to Jesus. 12 And it came to pass in those days, that He went out into a mountain to pray, and continued all night in prayer to God. 13 And when it was day, He called unto Him his disciples; and of them He chose 12, whom also He named apostles; 14 Simon, (whom he also named Peter,) and Andrew his brother, Jacob and John, Philip and Bartholomew, 15 Matthew and Thomas, Jacob the son of Alphaeus, and Simon called Zelotes, 16 And Judas the brother of Jacob, and judas iscariot, who also was the traitor. 17 And He came down with them, and stood in the plain, and the company of His disciples, and a great multitude of people out of all Judaea and Jerusalem, and from the sea coast of Tyre and Sidon, who came to hear Him, and to be healed of their diseases; 18 And they that were vexed with unclean spirits, and they were healed. 19 And the whole multitude sought to touch Him; for there went virtue out of Him, and healed them all. 20 And He lifted up His Eyes on His disciples, and said,

Blessed are you poor, for yours is the Kingdom of God.

21 Blessed are you that hunger now, for you shall be filled.

Blessed are you that weep now, for you shall laugh.

22 Blessed are you, when men shall hate you, and when they shall separate you from their company, and shall reproach you, and cast out your name as evil, 

for the Son of Man's sake.

23 Rejoice you in that day, and leap for joy: for, behold, your reward is great in heaven: for in the like manner did their fathers unto the prophets.

24 But woe unto you who are rich, for you have received your consolation.

    25 Woe unto you who are full, for you shall hunger. Woe unto you that laugh now!           for you shall mourn and weep.

                    26 Woe unto you, when all men shall speak well of you,                                       for so did their fathers to the false prophets.

27 But I say unto you who hear, Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you,

28 Bless those who curse you, and pray for those who despitefully use you.

29 And unto him who smites you on the one cheek offer also the other; 

and him who takes away your cloak forbid not to take your coat also.

30 Give to every man who asks of you; and of him who takes away your goods ask them not again.

31 And as you would that men should do to you, do you also to them likewise.

32 For if you love them which love you, what thank have you? For sinners also love those who love them.

33 And if you do good to those who do good to you, what thanks have you? 

For sinners also do even the same.

34 And if you lend to them of whom you hope to receive, what thank have you? 

For sinners also lend to sinners, to receive as much again.

35 But love your enemies, and do good, and lend, hoping for nothing again; and your reward shall be great, and you shall be the children of the Most High: for He is kind unto the unthankful and to the evil.

36 Be therefore merciful, as your Father also is merciful.

37 Judge not, and you shall not be judged: condemn not, and you shall not be condemned;

 forgive, and you shall be forgiven.

38 Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, 

and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure 

that you mete withal it shall be measured to you again.

39  And He spoke a parable unto them, Can the blind lead the blind? Shall they not both fall into the ditch? 40 The disciple is not above his Master; but everyone who is perfect shall be as his Master. 41 And why behold the mote that is in your brother's eye, but perceive not the beam that is in your own eye? 42 Either how can you say to your brother, Brother, let me pull out the mote that is in your eye, when you yourself behold not the beam that is in your own eye? You hypocrite, cast out first the beam out of your own eye, and then shall you see clearly to pull out the mote that is in your brother's eye. 43 For a good tree brings not forth corrupt fruit; neither does a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. 44 For every tree is known by its own fruit. For of thorns men do not gather figs, nor of a bramble bush gather they grapes. 45 A good man out of the good treasure of his heart brings forth that which is good; and an evil man out of the evil treasure of his heart brings forth that which is evil: for of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaks. 46 And why do you call Me, Lord, Lord, and do not the things which I say? 47 Whosoever comes to Me, and hears My sayings, and does them, I will show you to whom he is like; 48 He is like a man who built a house, and dug deep, and laid the foundation on a rock; and when the flood arose, the stream beat vehemently upon that house, and could not shake it; for it was founded upon a rock. 49 But he who hears, and does not, is like a man that without a foundation built an house upon the earth; against which the stream did beat vehemently, and immediately it fell; and the ruin of that house was great.

7 Now when He had ended all His sayings in the audience of the people, He entered into Capernaum. And a certain centurion's servant, who was dear unto him, was sick, and ready to die. 3 And when he heard of Jesus, he sent unto him the elders of the Jews, beseeching Him that He would come and heal his servant. 4 And when they came to Jesus, they besought Him instantly, saying, That he was worthy for whom He should do this; 5 For he loves our nation, and he has built us a synagogue. 6 Then Jesus went with them. And when He was now not far from the house, the centurion sent friends to Him, saying unto Him, Lord, trouble not Yourself; for I am not worthy that You should enter under my roof; 7 Wherefore neither thought I myself worthy to come unto You; but say the word, and my servant shall be healed. 8 For I also am a man set under authority, having under me soldiers, and I say unto one, Go, and he goes; and to another, Come, and he comes; and to my servant, Do this, and he does it. 9 When Jesus heard these things, He marveled at him, and turned about, and said unto the people that followed Him, I say unto you, I have not found so great faith, no, not in Israel. 10 And they that were sent, returning to the house, found the servant whole that had been sick. 11 And it came to pass the day after, that He went into a city called Nain; and many of His disciples went with Him, and much people. 12 Now when He came nigh to the gate of the city, behold, there was a dead man carried out, the only son of his mother, and she was a widow, and much people of the city was with her. 13 And when the Lord saw her, He had compassion on her, and said unto her, Weep not. 14 And He came and touched the bier: and they that bare him stood still. And He said, Young man, I say unto you, Arise. 15 And he who was dead sat up, and began to speak. And He delivered him to his mother. 16 And there came a fear on all: and they glorified God, saying, That a Great Prophet is risen up among us; and, That God has visited His people. 17 And this rumor of Him went forth throughout all Judaea, and throughout all the region round about. 18 And the disciples of John showed him of all these things. 19 And John calling unto him 2 of his disciples sent them to Jesus, saying, Are you He Who should come; or look we for another? 20 When the men were come unto Him, they said, John Baptist has sent us unto You, saying, Are you He Who should come; or look we for another? 21 And in that same hour He cured many of their infirmities and plagues, and of evil spirits; and unto many that were blind He gave sight. 22 Then Jesus answering said unto them, Go your way, and tell John what things you have seen and heard; how that the blind see, the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed, the deaf hear, the dead are raised, to the poor the Gospel is preached. 23 And blessed is he, whosoever shall not be offended in Me. 24 And when the messengers of John were departed, He began to speak unto the people concerning John, What went you out into the wilderness for to see; A reed shaken with the wind? 25 But what went you out for to see? A man clothed in soft raiment? Behold, those who are gorgeously appareled, and live delicately, are in kings' courts. 26 But what went you out for to see; A Prophet? Yea, I say unto you, and much more than a Prophet. 27 This is he, of whom it is written, Behold, I send My messenger before Your Face, who shall prepare Your way before You. 28 For I say unto you, Among those that are born of women there is not a greater Prophet than John the Baptist; but he that is least in the Kingdom of God is greater than he. 29 And all the people that heard Him, and the publicans, justified God, being baptized with the baptism of John. 30 But the Pharisees and lawyers rejected the counsel of God against themselves, being not baptized of him. 31 And the Lord said, Whereunto then shall I liken the men of this generation; and to what are they like? 32 They are like unto children sitting in the marketplace, and calling one to another, and saying, We have piped unto you, and you have not danced; we have mourned to you, and you have not wept. 33 For John the Baptist came neither eating bread nor drinking wine; and you say, He has a devil. 34 The Son of Man is come eating and drinking; and you say, Behold a gluttonous man, and a winebibber, a friend of publicans and sinners! 35 But wisdom is justified of all her children. 36 And one of the Pharisees desired Him that He would eat with him. And He went into the Pharisee's house, and sat down to meat. 37 And, behold, a woman in the city, who was a sinner, when she knew that Jesus sat at meat in the Pharisee's house, brought an alabaster box of ointment, 38 And stood at His Feet behind Him weeping, and began to wash His Feet with tears, and wiped them with the hairs of her head, and kissed His Feet, and anointed them with the ointment. 39 Now when the Pharisee who had bidden Him saw it, he spoke within himself, saying, This Man, if He were a Prophet, would have known who and what manner of woman this is who touches Him; for she is a sinner. 40 And Jesus answering said unto him, Simon, I have somewhat to say unto you. And he said, Master, say on. 41 There was a certain creditor which had 2 debtors: the one owed 500 denaria, and the other 50. 42 And when they had nothing to pay, he frankly forgave them both. Tell me therefore, which of them will love him most? 43 Simon answered and said, I suppose that he, to whom he forgave most. And He said unto him, You have rightly judged. 44 And He turned to the woman, and said unto Simon, Do you see this woman? I entered into your house, you gave Me no water for My Feet: but she has washed My Feet with tears, and wiped them with the hairs of her head. 45 You gave Me no kiss: but this woman since the time I came in has not ceased to kiss My Feet. 46 My Head with oil you did not anoint; but this woman has anointed My Feet with ointment. 47 Wherefore I say unto you, Her sins, which are many, are forgiven; for she loved much: but to whom little is forgiven, the same loves little. 48 And He said unto her, Your sins are forgiven. 49 And they that sat at meat with Him began to say within themselves, Who is This that forgives sins also? 50 And He said to the woman, Your faith has saved you; go in peace.

8 And it came to pass afterward, that He went throughout every city and village, preaching and showing the glad tidings of the Kingdom of God; and the 12 were with Him, 2 And certain women, which had been healed of evil spirits and infirmities, Mary called Magdalene, out of whom went 7 devils, 3 And Joanna the wife of Chuza, Herod's steward, and Susanna, and many others, which ministered unto Him of their substance. 4 And when much people were gathered together, and were come to Him out of every city, He spoke by a parable: 5 A sower went out to sow his seed: and as he sowed, some fell by the way side; and it was trodden down, and the fowls of the air devoured it. 6 And some fell upon a rock; and as soon as it was sprung up, it withered away, because it lacked moisture. And some fell among thorns; and the thorns sprang up with it, and choked it. 8 And other fell on good ground, and sprang up, and bare fruit 100-fold. And when He had said these things, He cried, He who has ears to hear, let him hear. 9 And his disciples asked Him, saying, What might this parable be? 10 And He said, Unto you it is given to know the Mysteries of the Kingdom of God; but to others in parables; that seeing they might not see, and hearing they might not understand. 11 Now the parable is this: The seed is the Word of God. 12 Those by the way side are they that hear; then the devil comes, and takes away the Word out of their hearts, lest they should believe and be saved. 13 They on the rock are they, which, when they hear, receive the word with joy; and these have no root, which for a while believe, and in time of temptation fall away. 14 And that which fell among thorns are they, which, when they have heard, go forth, and are choked with cares and riches and pleasures of this life, and bring no fruit to perfection. 15 But that on the good ground are they, which in an honest and good heart, having heard the word, keep it, and bring forth fruit with patience. 16 No man, when he has lighted a candle, covers it with a vessel, or puts it under a bed; but sets it on a candlestick, that they which enter in may see the light. 17 For nothing is secret, that shall not be made manifest; neither anything hid, that shall not be known and come abroad. 18 Take heed therefore how you hear: for whosoever has, to him shall be given; and whosoever has not, from him shall be taken even that which he seems to have. 19 Then came to Him His Mother and His brethren, and could not come at Him for the press. 20  And it was told Him by certain which said, Your Mother and Your brethren stand without, desiring to see You. 21 And He answered and said unto them, My mother and My brethren are these who hear the Word of God, and do it. 22  Now it came to pass on a certain day, that He went into a ship with His disciples: and He said unto them, Let us go over unto the other side of the lake. And they launched forth. 23  But as they sailed He fell asleep; and there came down a storm of wind on the lake; and they were filled with water, and were in jeopardy. 24 And they came to Him, and awoke him, saying, Master, Master, we perish. Then He arose, and rebuked the wind and the raging of the water; and they ceased, and there was a calm. 25 And He said unto them, Where is your faith? And they being afraid wondered, saying one to another, What manner of Man is this; for He commands even the winds and water, and they obey Him. 26 And they arrived at the country of the Gadarenes, which is over against Galilee. 27 And when He went forth to land, there met Him out of the city a certain man, which had devils long time, and wore no clothes, neither abode in any house, but in the tombs. 28 When he saw Jesus, he cried out, and fell down before Him, and with a loud voice said, What have I to do with You, Jesus, You Son of God Most High? I beseech You, torment me not. 29 (For He had commanded the unclean spirit to come out of the man. For oftentimes it had caught him: and he was kept bound with chains and in fetters; and he broke the bands, and was driven of the devil into the wilderness.) 30 And Jesus asked him, saying, What is your name? And he said, legion: because many devils were entered into him. 31 And they besought Him that He would not command them to go out into the deep. 32 And there was there an herd of many swine feeding on the mountain; and they besought Him that He would suffer them to enter into them. And He suffered them. 33 Then went the devils out of the man, and entered into the swine; and the herd ran violently down a steep place into the lake, and were choked. 34 When they that fed them saw what was done, they fled, and went and told it in the city and in the country. 35 Then they went out to see what was done; and came to Jesus, and found the man, out of whom the devils were departed, sitting at the Feet of Jesus, clothed, and in his right mind; and they were afraid. 36 They also which saw it told them by what means he that was possessed of the devils was healed. 37 Then the whole multitude of the country of the Gadarenes round about besought Him to depart from them; for they were taken with great fear: and He went up into the ship, and returned back again. 38 Now the man out of whom the devils were departed besought Him that he might be with Him; but Jesus sent him away, saying, 39 Return to your own house, and show how great things God has done unto you. And he went his way, and published throughout the whole city how great things Jesus had done unto him. 40 And it came to pass, that, when Jesus was returned, the people gladly received Him: for they were all waiting for Him. 41 And, behold, there came a man named Jairus, and he was a ruler of the synagogue: and he fell down at Jesus' Feet, and besought Him that He would come into his house; 42 For he had one only daughter, about 12 years of age, and she lay dying. But as He went the people thronged Him. 43 And a woman having an issue of blood 12 years, who had spent all her living upon physicians, neither could be healed of any, 44 Came behind Him, and touched the border of His garment: and immediately her issue of blood stanched. 45 And Jesus said, Who touched Me? When all denied, Peter and they that were with Him said, Master, the multitude throng You and press You, and You say, Who touched Me? 46  And Jesus said, Somebody has touched Me; for I perceive that virtue is gone out of Me. 47 And when the woman saw that she was not hid, she came trembling, and falling down before Him, she declared unto Him before all the people for what cause she had touched Him, and how she was healed immediately. 48 And He said unto her, Daughter, be of good comfort; your faith has made you whole; go in peace. 49  While He yet spoke, there came one from the ruler of the synagogue's house, saying to him, Your daughter is dead; trouble not the Master. 50 But when Jesus heard it, He answered him, saying, Fear not; only believe, and she shall be made whole. 51 And when He came into the house, He suffered no man to go in, save Peter, and Jacob, and John, and the father and the mother of the maiden. 52 And all wept, and bewailed her; but He said, Weep not; she is not dead, but sleeps. 53 And they laughed Him to scorn, knowing that she was dead. 54  And He put them all out, and took her by the hand, and called, saying, Maid, arise. 55  And her spirit came again, and she arose straightway; and He commanded to give her meat. 56 And her parents were astonished; but He charged them that they should tell no man what was done.

9 Then He called His 12 disciples together, and gave them power and authority over all devils, and to cure diseases. 2  And He sent them to preach the Kingdom of God, and to heal the sick. 3 And He said unto them, Take nothing for your journey, neither staves, nor scrip, neither bread, neither money; neither have 2 coats apiece. 4 And whatsoever house you enter into, there abide, and thence depart. And whosoever will not receive you, when you go out of that city, shake off the very dust from your feet for a testimony against them. And they departed, and went through the towns, preaching the Gospel, and healing everywhere. 7 Now Herod the tetrarch heard of all that was done by Him; and he was perplexed, because that it was said of some, that John was risen from the dead; And of some, that Elijah had appeared; and of others, that one of the old Prophets was risen again.And Herod said, John have I beheaded: but Who is This, of Whom I hear such things? And he desired to see Him. 10 And the apostles, when they were returned, told him all that they had done. And He took them, and went aside privately into a desert place belonging to the city called Bethsaida. 11 And the people, when they knew it, followed Him; and He received them, and spoke unto them of the Kingdom of God, and healed them that had need of healing. 12 And when the day began to wear away, then came the 12, and said unto Him, Send the multitude away, that they may go into the towns and country round about, and lodge, and get victuals: for we are here in a desert place. 13 But He said unto them, You give them to eat. And they said, We have no more than 5 loaves and 2 fishes; except we should go and buy meat for all this people. 14 For they were about 5,000 men. And He said to His disciples, Make them sit down by 50s in a company. 15 And they did so, and made them all sit down. 16 Then He took the 5 loaves and the 2 fishes, and looking up to heaven, He blessed them, and broke, and gave to the disciples to set before the multitude. 17 And they ate, and were all filled; and there was taken up of fragments that remained to them 12 baskets. 18 And it came to pass, as He was alone praying, His disciples were with him; and He asked them, saying, Whom say the people that I am? 19 They answering said, John the Baptist; but some say, Elijah; and others say, that one of the old Prophets is risen again. 20 He said unto them, But Whom say you that I am? Peter answering said, The Christ of God. 21 And He straitly charged them, and commanded them to tell no man that thing; 22 Saying, The Son of Man must suffer many things, and be rejected of the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be slain, and be raised the third day. 23 And He said to them all, If any man will come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow Me.  24 For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: but whosoever will lose his life for My sake, the same shall save it. 25 For what is a man advantaged, if he gain the whole world, and lose himself, or be cast away? 26 For whosoever shall be ashamed of Me and of My Words, of him shall the Son of Man be ashamed, when He shall come in His own Glory, and in His Father's, and of the Holy Angels. 27 But I tell you of a truth, there be some standing here, which shall not taste of death, till they see the Kingdom of God. 28 And it came to pass about 8 days after these sayings, He took Peter and John and Jacob, and went up into a mountain to pray. 29 And as He prayed, the fashion of His Countenance was altered, and His raiment was white and glistering. 30 And, behold, there talked with Him 2 men, who were Moses and Elijah; 31 Who appeared in glory, and spoke of His decease which He should accomplish at Jerusalem. 32 But Peter and they that were with Him were heavy with sleep: and when they were awake, they saw His Glory, and the 2 men that stood with Him. 33 And it came to pass, as they departed from Him, Peter said unto Jesus, Master, it is good for us to be here; let us make 3 tabernacles; one for You, and one for Moses, and one for Elijah; not knowing what he said. 34 While He thus spoke, there came a cloud, and overshadowed them; and they feared as they entered into the cloud. 35 And there came a Voice out of the cloud, saying, This is My Beloved Son; hear Him. 36 And when the Voice was past, Jesus was found alone. And they kept it close, and told no man in those days any of those things which they had seen. 37 And it came to pass, that on the next day, when they were come down from the hill, much people met Him. 38 And, behold, a man of the company cried out, saying, Master, I beseech You, look upon my son: for he is my only child. 39 And, lo, a spirit takes him, and he suddenly cries out; and it tears him that he foams again, and bruising him hardly departs from him. 40 And I besought Your disciples to cast him out; and they could not. 41 And Jesus answering said, O faithless and perverse generation, how long shall I be with you, and suffer you? Bring your son hither. 42 And as he was yet a coming, the devil threw him down, and tore him. And Jesus rebuked the unclean spirit, and healed the child, and delivered him again to his father. 43 And they were all amazed at the Mighty Power of God. But while they wondered everyone at all things which Jesus did, He said unto His disciples, 44 Let these sayings sink down into your ears: for the Son of Man shall be delivered into the hands of men. 45 But they understood not this saying, and it was hid from them, that they perceived it not: and they feared to ask Him of that saying. 46 Then there arose a reasoning among them, which of them should be greatest. 47 And Jesus, perceiving the thought of their heart, took a child, and set him by Him, 48 And said unto them, Whosoever shall receive this child in My Name receives Me: and whosoever shall receive Me receives Him Who sent Me; for he that is least among you all, the same shall be great. 49 And John answered and said, Master, we saw one casting out devils in Your Name; and we forbad him, because he follows not with us. 50 And Jesus said unto him, Forbid him not: for he who is not against us is for us. 51 And it came to pass, when the time was come that He should be received up, He steadfastly set His Face to go to Jerusalem, 52 And sent messengers before His Face; and they went, and entered into a village of the Samaritans, to make ready for Him. 53 And they did not receive Him, because His Face was as though He would go to Jerusalem. 54 And when His disciples Jacob and John saw this, they said, Lord, will You that we command fire to come down from heaven, and consume them, even as Elijah did? 55 But He turned, and rebuked them, and said, You know not what manner of spirit you are of. 56 For the Son of Man is not come to destroy men's lives, but to save them. And they went to another village. 57 And it came to pass, that, as they went in the way, a certain man said unto Him, Lord, I will follow You wheresoever You go. 58 And Jesus said unto him, Foxes have holes, and birds of the air have nests; but the Son of Man has not where to lay His Head. 59 And He said unto another, Follow Me. But he said, Lord, suffer me first to go and bury my father. 60 Jesus said unto him, Let the dead bury their dead: but you go and preach the Kingdom of God. 61 And another also said, Lord, I will follow You; but let me first go bid them farewell, who are at home at my house. 62 And Jesus said unto him, No man, having put his hand to the plough, and looking back, is fit for the Kingdom of God.

10 After these things the Lord appointed other 70 also, and sent them 2 and 2 before His Face into every city and place, where He Himself would come. 2 Therefore said He unto them, The harvest truly is great, but the laborers are few; pray therefore the Lord of the harvest, that He would send forth laborers into His harvest. 3 Go your ways: behold, I send you forth as lambs among wolves. 4 Carry neither purse, nor scrip, nor shoes; and salute no man by the way. 5 And into whatsoever house you enter, first say, Peace be to this house. 6 And if the son of peace be there, your peace shall rest upon it: if not, it shall turn to you again. 7 And in the same house remain, eating and drinking such things as they give: for the laborer is worthy of his hire. Go not from house to house. 8 And into whatsoever city you enter, and they receive you, eat such things as are set before you; 9 And heal the sick that are therein, and say unto them, The Kingdom of God is come nigh unto you. 10 But into whatsoever city you enter, and they receive you not, go your ways out into the streets of the same, and say, 11 Even the very dust of your city, which cleaves on us, we wipe off against you; notwithstanding be sure of this, that the Kingdom of God is come nigh unto you. 12 But I say unto you, that it shall be more tolerable in that day for Sodom, than for that city. 13 Woe unto you, Chorazin! woe unto you, Bethsaida! for if the mighty works had been done in Tyre and Sidon, which have been done in you, they had a great while ago repented, sitting in sackcloth and ashes. 14 But it shall be more tolerable for Tyre and Sidon at the judgment, than for you. 15 And you, Capernaum, which is exalted to heaven, shall be thrust down to hell. 16 He who hears you hears Me; and he who despises you despises Me; and he who despises Me despises Him Who sent Me. 17 And the 70 returned again with joy, saying, Lord, even the devils are subject unto us through Your Name. 18 And He said unto them, I beheld satan as lightning fall from heaven. 19 Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you. 20 Notwithstanding in this rejoice not, that the spirits are subject unto you; but rather rejoice, because your names are written in heaven. 21 In that hour Jesus rejoiced in spirit, and said, I thank You, O Father, Lord of Heaven and Earth, that You have hid these things from the wise and prudent, and have revealed them unto babes: even so, Father; for so it seemed good in Your Sight. 22 All things are delivered to Me of My Father: and no man knows Who the Son is, but the Father; and Who the Father is, but the Son, and he to whom the Son will reveal Him. 23 And He turned unto His disciples, and said privately, Blessed are the eyes which see the things that you see; 24 For I tell you, that many prophets and kings have desired to see those things which you see, and have not seen them; and to hear those things which you hear, and have not heard them. 25 And, behold, a certain lawyer stood up, and tempted Him, saying, Master, what shall I do to inherit eternal life? 26 He said unto him, What is written in the law? How do you read it? 27 And he answering said, You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your strength, and with all your mind; and your neighbor as yourself. 28 And He said unto him, You have answered right: this do, and you shall live. 29 But he, willing to justify himself, said unto Jesus, And who is my neighbor? 30 And Jesus answering said, A certain man went down from Jerusalem to Jericho, and fell among thieves, who stripped him of his raiment, and wounded him, and departed, leaving him half dead. 31 And by chance there came down a certain priest that way; and when he saw him, he passed by on the other side. 32 And likewise a Levite, when he was at the place, came and looked on him, and passed by on the other side. 33 But a certain Samaritan, as he journeyed, came where he was: and when he saw him, he had compassion on him, 34 And went to him, and bound up his wounds, pouring in oil and wine, and set him on his own beast, and brought him to an inn, and took care of him. 35 And on the next day when he departed, he took out 2 denaria, and gave them to the host, and said unto him, Take care of him; and whatsoever you spend more, when I come again, I will repay you. 36 Which now of these 3, do you think, was neighbor unto him who fell among the thieves?  37 And he said, He who showed mercy on him. Then said Jesus unto him, Go, and do likewise. 38 Now it came to pass, as they went, that He entered into a certain village: and a certain woman named Martha received Him into her house. 39 And she had a sister called Mary, who also sat at Jesus' Feet, and heard His Word. 40 But Martha was cumbered about much serving, and came to Him, and said, Lord, do You not care that my sister has left me to serve alone? Bid her therefore that she help me. 41 And Jesus answered and said unto her, Martha, Martha, you are careful and troubled about many things; 42 But one thing is needful: and Mary has chosen that good part, which shall not be taken away from her.

11 And it came to pass, that, as He was praying in a certain place, when He ceased, one of His disciples said unto Him, Lord, teach us to pray, as John also taught his disciples. 2 And He said unto them, When you pray, say, Our Father Who art in heaven, Hallowed be Your Name. Your Kingdom come. Your will be done, as in heaven, so in earth. 3 Give us day by day our daily bread. And forgive us our sins; for we also forgive everyone that is indebted to us. And lead us not into temptation; but deliver us from evil. 5 And He said unto them, Which of you shall have a friend, and shall go unto him at midnight, and say unto him, Friend, lend me 3 loaves; 6 For a friend of mine in his journey has come to me, and I have nothing to set before him? 7 And he from within shall answer and say, Trouble me not: the door is now shut, and my children are with me in bed; I cannot rise and give you. 8 I say unto you, Though he will not rise and give him, because he is his friend, yet because of his importunity he will rise and give him as many as he needs. 9 And I say unto you, Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and you shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you. 10 For everyone who asks receives; and he who seeks finds; and to him who knocks it shall be opened. 11 If a son shall ask bread of any of you that is a father, will he give him a stone? or if he ask a fish, will he for a fish give him a serpent? 12 Or if he shall ask an egg, will he offer him a scorpion? 13 If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children: how much more shall your Heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask Him? 14 And He was casting out a devil, and it was dumb. And it came to pass, when the devil was gone out, the dumb spoke; and the people wondered. 15 But some of them said, He casts out devils through beelzebub the chief of the devils. 16 And others, tempting Him, sought of Him a sign from heaven. 17 But He, knowing their thoughts, said unto them, Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and a house divided against a house falls. 18 If satan also is divided against himself, how shall his kingdom stand? Because you say that I cast out devils through beelzebub. 19 And if I by beelzebub cast out devils, by whom do your sons cast them out? Therefore shall they be your judges. 20 But if I with the Finger of God cast out devils, no doubt the Kingdom of God is come upon you. 21
