And Jesus looked round about, and saith unto his 23 disciples, How hardly shall they that have riches en

But Jesus answereth again, thorities omit for and saith unto them, Children, how hard is it for

dom of God. And they were astonished exceeding- 26 authorities read ly, saying "unto him, Then who can be saved? Jesus 27

looking upon them saith, With men it is impossible,
but not with God: for all things are possible with
God. Peter began to say unto him, Lo, we have left 28
all, and have followed thee. Jesus said, Verily I say 29
unto you, There is no man that hath left house, or
brethren, or sisters, or mother, or father, or children,
or lands, for my sake, and for the gospel's sake, but 30
he shall receive a hundredfold now in this time,
houses, and brethren, and sisters, and mothers, and
children, and lands, with persecutions; and in the
3world to come eternal life. But many that are first 31
shall be last; and the last first.

And they were in the way, going up to Jerusalem ; 32

and Jesus was going before them: and they were they followed were amazed; 4and they that followed* were afraid. And afraid

he took again the twelve, and began to tell them the
things that were to happen unto him, saying, Behold, 33
we go up to Jerusalem; and the Son of man shall be
delivered unto the chief priests and the scribes; and
they shall condemn him to death, and shall deliver
him unto the Gentiles: and they shall mock him, and 34
shall spit upon him, and shall scourge him, and shall
kill him; and after three days he shall rise again.

And there come near unto him James and John, 35 the sons of Zebedee, saying unto him, 5Master, we would that thou shouldest do for us whatsoever we shall ask of thee. And he said unto them, What 36 would ye that I should do for you? And they said 37 unto him, Grant unto us that we may sit, one on thy right hand, and one on thy left hand, in thy glory. But Jesus said unto them, Ye know not what ye ask. 38 Are

ye able to drink the cup that I drink? or to be baptized with the baptism that I am baptized with? And they said unto him, We are able. And Jesus 39 said unto them, The cup that I drink ye shall drink; and with the baptism that I am baptized withal shall

left hand is not mine to give: but it is for them for 41 whom it hath been prepared. And when the ten

heard it, they began to be moved with indignation 42 concerning James and John. And Jesus called them

to him, and saith unto them, Ye know that they which are accounted to rule over the Gentiles lord it

over them; and their great ones exercise authority 43 over them. But it is not so among you: but who

soever would become great among you, shall be your 44 'minister: and whosoever would be first among you, 1 0r, servant 45 shall be ?servant of all. For verily* the Son of man 2 Gr. bondservant.

came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and

to give his life a ransom for many, 46 And they come to Jericho: and as he went out

from Jericho, with his disciples and a great multitude, the son of Timæus, Bartimæus, a blind beggar, 47 was sitting by the way side. And when he heard

that it was Jesus of Nazareth, he began to cry out,

and say, Jesus, thou son of David, have mercy on 48 me.

And many rebuked him, that he should hold his peace: but he cried out the more a great deal, 49 Thou son of David, have mercy on me. And Jesus

stood still, and said, Call ye him. And they call the

blind man, saying unto him, Be of good cheer: rise, 50 he calleth thee. And he, casting away his garment, 51 sprang up, and came to Jesus. And Jesus answered

him, and said, What wilt thou that I should do unto

thee? And the blind man said unto him, "Rabboni, 3 See John xx. 16. 52 that I may receive my sight. And Jesus said unto

him, Go thy way; thy faith hath made thee whole. 4 Or, saved thee And straightway he received his sight, and followed

him in the way. 11 And when they draw nigh unto Jerusalem, unto

Bethphage and Bethany, at the mount of Olives, he 2 sendeth two of his disciples, and saith unto them, Go your way into the village that is over against you: and straightway as ye enter into it, ye shall find a

colt tied, whereon no man ever yet sat; loose him, 3 and bring him. And if any one say unto you, Why

do ye this? say ye, The Lord hath need of him; and 4 straightway he will send him back hither. And

6 Or, again they went away, and found a colt tied at the door 5 without in the open street; and they loose him.. And certain of them that stood there said unto them, What

do ye, loosing the colt? And they said unto them 6
even as Jesus had said: and they let them go. And 7
they bring the colt unto Jesus, and cast on him their

garments; and he sat upon him. And many spread 8 Gerelayers of their garments upon the way; and others branches,

which they had cut from the fields. And they that 9
went before, and they that followed, cried, Hosanna;
Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord :
Blessed is the kingdom that cometh, the kingdom of 10
our father David: Hosanna in the highest.

And he entered into Jerusalem, into the temple; 11
and when he had looked round about upon all things,
it being now eventide, he went out unto Bethany
with the twelve.

And on the morrow, when they were come out 12
from Bethany, he hungered. And seeing a fig tree 13
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 it was not the season
of figs. And he answered and said unto it, No man 14
eat fruit from thee henceforward for ever, And his
disciples heard it.

And they come to Jerusalem: and he entered into 15
the temple, and began to cast out them that sold and
them that bought in the temple, and overthrew the
tables of the money-changers, and the seats of them
that sold the doves; and he would not suffer that 16
any man should carry a vessel through the temple.
And he taught, and said unto them, Is it not written, 17
My house shall be called a house of prayer for all
the nations? but ye have made it a den of robbers.

sought how they might destroy him: for they fear-

And as they passed by in the morning, they saw 20
the fig tree withered away from the roots. And 21
Peter calling to remembrance saith unto him, Rab-
bi, behold, the fig tree which thou cursedst is with-
ered away. And Jesus answering saith unto them, 22
Have faith in God. Verily I say unto you, Whoso-23
ever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou taken up
and cast into the sea ; and shall not doubt in his
heart, but shall believe that what he saith cometh

man planted a vineyard, and set a hedge about it, and digged a pit for the winepress, and built a tower, and let it out to husbandmen, and went into an2 other country. And at the season he sent to the

husbandmen a 5servant, that he might receive from 5 Gr. bondservant. 3 the husbandmen of the fruits of the vineyard. And

they killed : and many others; beating some, and 6 killing some. He had yet one, a beloved son: he

sent him last unto them, saying, They will rever7ence my son. But those husbandmen said among

themselves, This is the heir; come, let us kill him, 8 and the inheritance shall be ours. And they took

him, and killed him, and cast him forth out of the 9 vineyard. What therefore will the lord of the vine

yard do? he will come and destroy the husbandmen, 10 and will give the vineyard unto others. Have ye not read even this scripture;

11 And it is marvellous in our eyes? And they sought to lay hold on him; and they fear- 12 ed the multitude; for they perceived that he spake the parable against them: and they left him, and went away.

And they send unto him certain of the Pharisees 13 and of the Herodians, that they might catch him in talk. And when they were come, they say unto 14 him, "Master, we know that thou art true, and carest not for any one: for thou regardest not the person of men, but of a truth teachest the way of God: Is it lawful to give tribute unto Cæsar, or not? Shall 15 we give, or shall we not give? But he, knowing

their hypocrisy, said unto them, Why tempt ye me? • ? See marginal note bring me a "penny, that I may see it.

And they 16 brought it. And he saith unto them, Whose is this image and superscription? And they said unto him, Cæsar's. And Jesus said unto them, Render unto 17 Cæsar the things that are Cæsar's, and unto God the things that are God's. And they marvelled greatly at him.

And there come unto him Sadducees, which say 18 that there is no resurrection; and they asked him, saying, "Master, Moses wrote unto us, If a man's 19 brother die, and leave a wife behind him, and leave no child, that his brother should take his wife, and raise up seed unto his brother. There were seven 20 brethren: and the first took a wife, and dying left no seed; and the second took her, and died, leaving 21 no seed behind him; and the third likewise : and 22 the seven left no seed. Last of all the woman also died. In the resurrection whose wife shall she be 23 of them? for the seven had her to wife. Jesus said 24 unto them, Is it not for this cause that ye err, that ye know not the scriptures, nor the power of God? For when they shall rise from the dead, they neither 25 marry, nor are given in marriage; but are as angels in heaven. But as touching the dead, that they are 26 raised; have ye not read in the book of Moses, in the place concerning the Bush, how God spake unto him, saying I am the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob? He is not the God of 27 the dead, but of the living: ye do greatly err.

And one of the scribes came, and heard them 28 questioning together, and knowing that he had answered them well, asked him, What commandment is the first of all ? Jesus answered, The first is, 29
