VIII.

He Teaches in the Synagogue.

ND they went into Capernaum; and straightway on the sabbath day he entered into the synagogue, and taught.

2 And they were astonished at his doctrine: for he taught them as one that had authority, and not as the scribes.

IX.

Explains the Sabbath.

T that time Jesus went on the sabbath day through the corn; and his disciples were an hungred, and began to pluck the ears of corn, and to eat.

2 But when the Pharisees saw it, they said unto him, Behold, thy disciples do that which is not lawful to do upon the sabbath day.

3 But he said unto them, Have ye not read what David did, when he was an hungred, and they that were with him;

4 How he entered into the house of God, and did eat the shew-bread, which was not lawful for him to eat, neither for them which were with him, but only for the priests?

5 Or have ye not read in the law, how that on the sabbath days the priests in the temple profane the sabbath, and are blameless?

6 And when he was departed thence, he went into their synagogue:

7 And, behold, there was a man which had his hand withered. And they asked him, saying, Is it lawful to heal on the sabbath days? that they might accuse him.

8 And he said unto them, What man shall there be among you, that shall have one sheep, and if it fall into a pit on the sabbath day, will he not lay hold on it, and lift it out?

9 How much then is a man better than a sheep? Wherefore it is lawful to do well on the sabbath days.

10 And he said unto them, The sabbath was made for man, and not man for the sabbath.

11 Then the Pharisees went out, and held a council against him, how they might destroy him.

12 But when Jesus knew it, he withdrew himself from thence: and great multitudes followed him, and he healed them all.

X.

Call of His Disciples.

AND it came to pass in those days, that he went out into a mountain to pray, and continued

all night in prayer to God.

2 And when it was day, he called unto him his disciples: and of them he chose twelve, whom also he named apostles;

3 Simon, (whom he also named Peter,) and Andrew his brother, James and John, Philip and Bartholomew,

4 Matthew and Thomas, James the son of Alphaeus, and Simon called Zelotes,

5 And Judas the brother of James, and Judas Iscariot, which also was the traitor.

6 And he came down with them, and stood in the plain, and the company of his disciples, and a great multitude of people out of all Judaea and

Jerusalem, and from the sea coast of Tyre and Sidon, which came to hear him, and to be healed of their diseases.

XI.

The Sermon on the Mount.

ND seeing the multitudes, he went up into a mountain: and when he was set, his disciples came unto him:

2 And he opened his mouth, and taught them, saying,

3 Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be

comforted.

5 Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth.

6 Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled.

7 Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy.

8 Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God.

9 Blessed are the peacemakers; for they shall be called the children of God.

10 Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness' sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

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

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

13 But woe unto you that are rich! for ye have received your consolation.

14 Woe unto you that are full! for ye shall hunger. Woe unto you that laugh now! for ye shall mourn and weep.

15 Woe unto you, when all men shall speak well of you! for so did their fathers to the false prophets. 16

Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted?
