Even as it is written ’in Isaiah the prophet, 2

Behold, I send my messenger before thy face,
Who shall prepare thy way;
The voice of one crying in the wilderness, 3
Make ye ready the way of the Lord,

Make his paths straight;
John came, who baptized in the wilderness and 4
preached the baptism of repentance unto remission
of sins. And there went out unto him all the coun- 5
try of Judæa, and all they of Jerusalem; and they
were baptized of him in the river Jordan, confessing
their sins. And John was clothed with camel's hair, 6
and had a leathern girdle about his loins, and did eat
locusts and wild honey. And he preached, saying, 7

And it came to pass in those days, that Jesus 9 came from Nazareth of Galilee, and was baptized of John in the Jordan. And straightway coming up 10 out of the water, he saw the heavens rent asunder, and the Spirit as a dove descending upon him: and a 11 voice came out of the heavens, Thou art my beloved Son, in thee I am well pleased.

And straightway the Spirit driveth him forth into 12 the wilderness. And he was in the wilderness forty 13 days tempted of Satan; and he was with the wild beasts; and the angels ministered unto him.

Simon and Andrew the brother of Simon casting a 17 net in the sea: for they were fishers. And Jesus

said unto them, Come ye after me, and I will make 18 you to become fishers of men. And straightway 19 they left the nets, and followed him. And going on

a little further, he saw James the son of Zebedee, and

John his brother, who also were in the boat mend20 ing the nets. And straightway he called them: and

they left their father Zebedee in the boat with the

hired servants, and went after him. 21 And they go into Capernaum; and straightway

on the sabbath day he entered into the synagogue 22 and taught. And they were astonished at his teach

their synagogue a man with an unclean spirit; and 24 he cried out, saying, What have we to do with thee,

thou Jesus of Nazareth? art thou come to destroy

us? I know thee who thou art, the Holy One of 25 God. And Jesus rebuked 'him, saying, Hold thy 1 Or, it 26 peace, and come out of him. And the unclean spir

And 38 he saith unto them, Let us go elsewhere into the next towns, that I may preach there also; for to this end came I forth. And he went into their syna- 39 gogues throughout all Galilee, preaching and casting out 'devils.

And there cometh to him a leper, beseeching him, 40 kneeling down to and kneeling down to him, and saying unto him,
