And Jesus looked round about, and saith unto his 23 disciples, How hardly shall they that have riches enter into the kingdom of God! And the disciples were 24 amazed at his words. But Jesus answereth again, thorities omit for and saith unto them, Children, how hard is it 'for

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 world to come eternal life.

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, "Master, 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

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 Or, 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.


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.


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

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 1 Gr. layers of their garments upon the way; and others 1branches,


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. And the chief priests and the scribes heard it, and 18 sought how they might destroy him: for they feared him, for all the multitude was astonished at his

And every evening he went forth out of the 19 read city.

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, Rabbi, behold, the fig tree which thou cursedst is withered 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 to pass; he shall have it. Therefore I say unto you, 24 All things whatsoever ye pray and ask for, believe

And Jesus said unto them, I will ask of you one question, and answer me, and I will tell 2 Gr. word. 30 you by what authority I do these things. The bap

12 And he began to speak unto them in parables. A 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 servant, that he might receive from 5 Gr. hondservant.

him, and killed him, and cast him forth out of the 9 vineyard. What therefore will the lord of the vineyard do? he will come and destroy the husbandmen, 10 and will give the vineyard unto others. Have ye not read even this scripture;

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? ⚫ 2 See marginal note bring me a penny, that I may see it. And they 16 brought it.

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
