16 The people which sat in darkness saw great light; and to them which sat in the region and shadow of death, light is sprung up.

17 From that time Je'şus began to preach, and to say, Repent: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.

18 And Jesus, wâlk'ing by the sea of Găl'i-lēē, saw two brethren, Si'mon called Pē'tér, and An'drew his brother, çăs'ting a net into the sea: for they were fishers.

19 And he saith unto them, Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men.

11 Blessed are ye when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against' you fâlsely, for my sake.

12 Rejoice, and be exceeding glad; for great is your rewârd in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you.

13 Ye àre the sâlt of the earth: but if the sâlt have lost his savoŭr, wherewith shall it be sâlted? it is thenceforth good for nóth'ing, but to be căst out, and to be trodden under foot of men.

14 Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid.

15 Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bûshel, but on a candlestick, and it giveth light unto all that àre in the house.

16 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Fà'ther which is in heaven.

21 ¶ Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time, Thou shalt not kill; and whosoever shall kill, shall be in danger of the judgment:

22 But I say unto you, That whosoever is angry with his brother without a cause, shall be in danger of the judgment: and whosoever shall say to his brother, Ra'că, shall be in danger of the council: but whosoever shall say, Thou fool, shall be in danger of hell fire.
