18 A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree| bring forth good fruit.

19 Every a tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.

20 Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them."

22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied s in thy name? and in thy name! have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? 23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart w Ps.92.13from met ye that work iniquity.

He cleanseth and cureth.

and worshipped him, saying, Lord, if thou wilt, thou canst make me clean.

3 And Jesus put forth his hand, and touched him, saying, I will; be thou clean. And immediately his leprosy was cleansed.

4 And Jesus saith unto him, See thou tell b no man; but go thy way, show thyself to the priest, and offer the gift that Moses commanded, c for a testimony unto them.

5 And when Jesus was entered into Capernaum, there came unto him a centurion, d beseeching him, 6 And saying, Lord, my servant lieth at home sick of the palsy, grieviously tormented.

7 And Jesus saith unto him, I will come and heal him.

8 The centurion answered and said, Lord, I am not worthy e that thou shouldest come under my roof: but speak the word only,f and my servant shall be healed.

9 For I am a man under authority, having soldiers under me: and I say to this man, Go, and he goeth; and to another, Come, and he cometh; and to my servant, Do this, and he doeth it.

10 When Jesus heard it, he marvelled, and said to them that followed, Verily I say unto you, I have not found so great faith,g no, not in Israel.

11 And I say unto you, That h many shall come from the east and west, and shall sit down with

28 And it came to pass, when Jesus had ended these sayings, the people were astonished a at his doctrine:

29 For he taught them as one having authority, and not as the scribes.

14 T And when Jesus was come into Peter's house, he saw his wife's mother laid, I and sick of a fever. 15 And he touched her hand, and the fever left her: and she arose, and ministered unto them.

16 When the even was come, they brought unto him many m that were possessed with devils: and he cast out the spirits with his word, and healed all that were sick: 17 That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Esaias n the prophet, saying, Himself took our infirmities, and bare our sicknesses.

18 Now when Jesus saw great multitudes about him, he gave commandment to depart unto the other side.

24 And, behold, q there arose a great tempest in the sea, insomuch that the ship was covered with the waves but he was asleep.

25 And his disciples came to him, and awoke him, saying, Lord, save us: we perish.

26 And he said unto them, Why are ye fearful, O ye of little faith? Then he arose, and rebukedr the winds and the sea; and there was a great calm.

27 But the men marvelled, saying, What manner of man is this, that even the winds and the sea obey him!

28 T Ands when he was come to the other side, into the country of the Gergesenes, there met him two possessed with devils, coming out of the tombs, exceeding fierce, so that no man might pass by that way. 29 And, behold, they cried out, saying, What have we to do with thee, Jesus, thou Son of God? art thou come hither to torment us before the time?

30 And there was a good way off from them, an herd of many swine feeding.

3 And, behold, certain of the scribes said within themselves, This man blasphemeth.

4 And Jesus knowing their thoughts, c said, Wherefore think ye evil in your hearts?

5 For whether is easier, to say, Thy sins be forgiven thee; or to say, Arise, and walk?

6 But that ye may know that the Son of man hath power on earth to forgived sins, (then saith he to the sick of the palsy,) Arise, take up thy bed, and go unto thine house. 7 And he arose, and departed to his house.

10 And it came to pass, as Jesus sat at meat in the house, behold, many publicans and sinners came and sat down with him and his disciples.

11 And when the Pharisees saw it, they said unto his disciples, Why eateth your Master with publicans and sinners? g

12 But when Jesus heard that, he said unto them, They that be whole need not a physician, but they that are sick.

13 But go ye and learn what that meaneth, Ih will have mercy, and not sacrifice: for I am not come to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance. i

34 But the Pharisees saith, He b casteth out devils through the prince of the devils.

35 And c Jesus went about all the cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing every sickness and every disease among the people.

36 But when he saw the multitudes, he was moved with compassion on them, because they 3 fainted, and were scattered abroad, as sheep d having no shepherd.

37 Then saith he unto his disciples, The harvest e truly is plenteous, but the labourers are few; 38 Pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he will send forth f labourers into his harvest. CHAPTER X. The apostles are sent to do miracles, and to preach.

ND when he had called unto

A him his twelve disciples, he a

gave them power against 1 unclean spirits, to cast them out, and heal all manner of sickness and all manner of disease.

2 Now the names b of the twelve apostles are these: The first, Simon, who is called Peter, and Andrew his brother; James the son of Zebedee, and John his brother;

3 Philip, and Bartholomew; Thomas, and Matthew the publican; James the son of Alpheus, and Lebbeus, whose surname was Thaddeus;

4 Simon the Canaanite, and Judas Iscariot, who also betrayed him. 5 These twelve Jesus sent forth, and commanded them, saying, Go not into the way of the Gentiles, and into any city of the Samaritansc enter ye not:

6 But go d rather to the lost sheep e of the house of Israel.

7 And, as ye go, preach, saying, f The kingdom of heaven is at hand. 8 Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils: freely g ye have received, freely give.

9 2 Provide h neither gold, nor silver, nor brass, in your purses. 10 Nor scrip for your journey, neither two coats, neither shoes, nor yet 3 staves; for i the workman is worthy of his meat.

26 And if Satan, cast out Satan, he is divided against himself; how shall then his kingdom stand?

8 But others fell into good ground, and brought forth fruit, some an hundred-fold, some sixty-fold, some thirty-fold.

9 Who c hath ears to hear, let him hear.

10 And the disciples came, and said unto him, Why speakest thou unto them in parables?

11 He answered and said unto them, Because it is given unto you tod know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it is not given.

12 For e whosoever hath, to him shall be given, and he shall have more abundance: but whosoever hath not, from him shall be taken away, even that he hath.

13 Therefore speak I to them in parables because they seeing see not; and hearing they hear not, neither do they understand.

14 And in them is fulfilled the prophecy of Esaias, f which saith, Byg hearing ye shall hear, and shall not understand; and seeing ye shall see, and shall not perceive: 15 For this people's heart is waxed gross, and their ears are dull h of hearing, and their eyes they have closed; lest at any time they should see with their eyes, and hear with their cars, and should understand with their heart, and should be converted, and I should heal them. 16 But i blessed are your eyes, for they see and your ears, for they hear.

17 For verily I say unto you, That k many prophets and righteous men have desired to see those things which ye see, and have not seen them; and to hear those things which ye hear, and have not heard them.

18 Hear ye therefore the parable of the sower.

19 When any one heareth the word m of the kingdom, and understandeth it not, then cometh the wicked n one, and catcheth away that which was sown in his heart. This is he which received seed by the way side.

20 But he that received the seed into stony places, the same is he that heareth the word, and anon with joy o receiveth it;

21 Yet hath he not root in himself, but dureth for a while: for when tribulation or persecution ariseth because of the word, by and by he is offended.p
