of the Christ? whose son is he? They say unto 43 him, The son of David. He saith unto them, How

then doth David in the Spirit call him Lord, say

Sit thou on my right hand,

Till I put thine enemies underneath thy feet? 45 If David then calleth him Lord, how is he his son? 46 And no one was able to answer him a word, nei

ther durst any man from that day forth ask him any

more questions. 23 Then spake Jesus to the multitudes and to his 2 disciples, saying, The scribes and the Pharisees sit 3 on Moses' seat: all things therefore whatsoever they

Lo, here is the Christ, or, Here; believe it not. For 24
there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets,
