Now as they went on their way, he entered into a certain village : and a certain woman named Martha received 39 him into her house. "And she had a sister called Mary,

which also sat at the Lord's feet, and heard his word. 40 "But Martha was 'cumbered about much serving; and she

came up to him, and said, Lord, dost thou not care that

my sister did leave me to serve alone? bid her therefore 41 that she help me. "But the Lord answered and said unto

her, ? Martha, Martha, thou art anxious and troubled about

many things : "but one thing is needful: for Mary hath chosen the good part, which shall not be taken away from her.

And it came to pass, as he was praying in a certain place, that when he ceased, one of his disciples said unto

him, Lord, teach us to pray, even as John also taught his (2 disciples.

"And he said unto them, When ye pray, say, 4 Father, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come.5 "Give us day by day our daily bread. "And forgive us our sins; for we ourselves also forgive every one that is

indebted to us. And bring us not into temptation”. 5

And he said unto them, Which of you shall have a friend, and shall go unto him at midnight, and say to 6) him, Friend, lend me three loaves; 'for a friend of mine

is come to me from a journey, and I have nothing to set 7

before him ; "and he from within shall answer and say, 1 Gr. distracted.

? A few ancient authorities read Martha, Martha, thou art troubled : Mary hath chosen &c. 3 Many ancient authorities read but few things are needful, or one. * Many ancient authorities read Our Father, which art in heaven. See Matt. vi. 9. Many ancient authorities add Thy will be done, as in heaven, so on earth. See Matt. vi. Io.

Trouble me not: the door is now shut, and my children 8 are with me in bed; I cannot rise and give thee? "I say

unto you, Though he will not rise and give him, because he is his friend, yet because of his importunity he will arise and give him as many as he needeth. "And I say

unto you, Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye 10 shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you. 'For

"The unclean spirit when he is gone out of the man, passeth through waterless places, seeking rest; and finding none, " he saith, I will turn back unto my house

whence I came out. "And when he is come, 1 he findeth 26 it swept and garnished. "Then goeth 'he, and taketh to

And it came to pass, as he said these things, a certain woman out of the multitude lifted up her voice, and said

unto him, Blessed is the womb that bare thee, and the 28 breasts which thou didst suck. "But he said, Yea rather,

blessed are they that hear the word of God, and keep it. (29

And when the multitudes were gathering together unto him, he began to say, This generation is an evil

generation : it seeketh after a sign; and there shall no 30 sign be given to it but the sign of Jonah. "For even as

Jonah became a sign unto the Ninevites, so shall also the 31 Son of man be to this generation. "The queen of the

south shall rise up in the judgement with the men of this generation, and shall condemn them: for she came from

the ends of the earth to hear the wisdom of Solomon; 32 and behold, 3a greater than Solomon is here. "The

men of Nineveh shall stand up in the judgement with this generation, and shall condemn it: for they repented at the preaching of Jonah ; and behold, 3 a greater than Jonah is here.

body is thine eye: when thine eye is single, thy whole body also is full of light; but when it is evil, thy body

also is full of darkness. "Look therefore whether the (36) light that is in thee be not darkness. "If therefore thy

whole body be full of light, having no part dark, it shall be wholly full of light, as when the lamp with its bright

shining doth give thee light. (37

Now as he spake, a Pharisee asketh him to 'dine with him : and he went in, and sat down to meat. "And when the Pharisee saw it, he marvelled that he had not first washed before 1 dinner. "And the Lord said unto him, Now do ye Pharisees cleanse the outside of the cup and of the platter; but your inward part is full of extortion and

wickedness. "Ye foolish ones, did not he that made the (41 outside make the inside also ? "Howbeit give for alms

those things which are within ; and behold, all things are clean unto you.

But woe unto you Pharisees ! for ye tithe mint and rue and every herb, and pass over judgement and the love of God: but these ought ye to have done, and not to leave the other undone. "Woe unto you Pharisees! for ye
