MATTHEW, IV. warned you to fleeg from the A. D. 27. wrath to come?

8 Bring forth therefore fruits g Je.51.6. 1 meet for repentance:


9 And think not to say within yourselves, We have Abraham to our father: for I say unto you, that God is able of these stones to raise up children unto Abraham.

10 And now also the axe is laid unto the root of the trees: there-. fore every tree which bringeth not forth good fruit, is hewn h down, and cast into the fire.

11 I indeed baptize you with wateri unto repentance: but he that cometh after me is mightier than I, whose shoes I am not worthy to bear he shall baptize you k with the Holy Ghost, and with fire:

12 Whose fan is in his hand, and he will throughly purge his floor, and gather his wheat into the garner; but he will burn up the chaff m with unquenchable fire.

13 Then cometh Jesus from Ga-P lilee to Jordan unto John, to be baptized n of him.

14 But John forbad him, saying, I have need to be baptized of thee, and comest thou to me?

15 And Jesus answering, said unto him, Suffer it to be so now for thus it becometh us to fulfil all righteousness. Then he suffered

5 Then the devil taketh him up into the holy city, d and setteth! him on a pinnacle of the temple,

for it is written, He e aying Ive his angels charge concerning thee: and in their hands they shall bear thee up, lest at any time thou dash thy foot against a stone.

7 Jesus said unto him, It is written again, Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God.

8 Again, the devil taketh him up into an exceeding high mountain, and showeth him all the kingdoms of the world, and the glory of thein; 9 And saith unto him, All these things will I give thee, if thou wilt fall down and worship me.

10 Then saith Jesus unto him, Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, Thou g shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.

11 Then the devil leaveth him, and, behold, angels h came and ministered unto him.

12 Now when Jesus had heard that John was 1 cast into prison, he departed into Galilee;

13 And leaving Nazareth, he came and dwelt in Capernaum, which is upon the sea coast, in the borders of Zabulon and Nephthalim:

3 And when the tempter came to him, he said, If thou be the Son of God, command that these stones be made bread.

21 And going on from thence, he saw other two brethren p James the son of Zebedee, and John his 2Co. 12.16. brother, in a ship with Zebedee their father, mending their nets; and he called them.



15 The land of Zabulon, and the land of Nephthalim, by the way of the sea, beyond Jordan, Galilee of the Gentiles;

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

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

18 And Jesus, walking by the sea of Galilee, saw two brethren, Simon m called Peter, and Andrew his brother, casting a net into the sea: (for they were fishers.)

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

20 And they straightway left o their nets, and followed him.

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.
