cause thee to offend, pluck it out: it is better for thee to

enter into the kingdom of God with one eye, than, having 48 two eyes, to be cast into hell-fire ; where their worm 49 dieth not, and the fire is not quenched. For every one

shall be salted with fire: and every sacrifice shall be salt50 ed with salt. Salt is good: but if the salt have lost its saltness, wherewith will ye season it? Have salt in

yourselves ; and be at peace one with another." Ch x. And he arose thence, and cometh into the borders of 2 Judea, by the further side of Jordan: and the mul

titudes resort to him again: and, as he was wont, he taught them again. And the Pharisees came near, and

asked him, “Is it lawful for a man to put away his wife?" 3 trying him. And he answered and said unto them, Ą: “ What did Moses command you ?” And they said,

“ Moses suffered us to write a bill of divorcement, and to 5 put her away." And Jesus answered and said unto them,

“ For the perverseness of your heart he wrote you this 6 precept. But from the beginning of the creation God 7 made them a male and a female.

For this cause a man will leave his father and mother, and cleave to his wife ; 8 and they two will be one flesh.'

So that they are no 9 more two; but one flesh. What therefore God hath join

ed together, let not man put asunder.” 10 And in an house his disciples asked him again of the 11 same matter. And he saith unto them,

shall put away his wife, and shall marry another, com12 mitteth adultery against her. And if a woman shall put

away her husband, and shall be married to another, she

committeth adultery." 13 And soine brought little children to him, that he might

touch them: and his disciples rebuked those who brought 14' them. But when Jesus saw it, he was moved with indig

nation, and said unto them, “ Suffer the little children to

come unto me, [and] forbid them not: for of such-like 15 is the kingdom of God. Verily I say unto you, Who

6. Whosoever


soever shall not receive the kingdom of God as a little 16 child, he can by no means enter therein." And he took

them in his arms, put his hands on them, and blessed them.

And as he went forth into the way, one ran, and kneeled down to him, and asked him, “Good Teacher*, what 18 shall I do that I may inherit everlasting life?” And Jesus

said unto him, Why callest thou me good ? there is none 19 good, but one, that is God. Thou knowest the com

mandments, *Do not commit adultery ; Do no murder;

Do not steal; Do not bear false witness; Defraud not; 20 Honour thy father and mother.' And he answered and

said unto him, “ Teacher*, all these things I have kept 21 from my youth.” Then Jesus looked on him, and loved

him, and said unto him, “One thing thou wantest: go, sell whatsoever thou hast, and give to [the] poor, and

thou shalt have treasure in heaven : and come, (take up 22 the cross, and] follow me." And he was sad at those

words, and went away sorrowful: for he had great pos23 sessions. And Jesus looked round about, and saith to his

disciples, “ With what difficulty will those that have 24 riches enter into the kingdom of God!” And the dis

ciples were astonished at his words. But Jesus spake again, and saith unto them, Children, how difficult is

it for those who trust in riches to enter into the kingdom 25 of God! It is easier that a camel should go through the eye

of a needle, than that a rich man should enter into 26 the kingdom of God.” And they were exceedingly

amazed, saying among themselves, “Who then can be 27 saved ?" And Jesus looked on them, and saith,

With men it is impossible, but not with God : for with God 28 all things are possible.” Peter began to say, unto him, 29 “ Lo, we have left all, and have followed thee.” Jesus

answered and said, · Verily I say unto you, There is no man that hath left house, or brethren, or sisters, or

father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for my 30 sake and for the sake of the gospel, but he shall receive

an hundred-fold now in this time, houses, and brethren, and sisters, and mothers, and children, and lands, with

persecutions* ; and in the world to come everlasting life. 31 But many that are first will be last; and the last first.” 32 And they were in the way going up to Jerusalem ; and

Jesus went before them : and they were astonished; and, as they followed, were afraid. And he again took unto

him the twelve, and began to tell them the things which 33 were about to befal him: " Behold, we are going up to Jerusalem; and the Son of man will be delivered

up to the chief priests, and to the scribes; and they will con

demn him to death, and will deliver him up to the gen34 tiles: and these will scoff att him, and will scourge him,

and will spit on him, and will kill him: and the third

day he will rise again.” 35 And James and John, the sons of Zebedee, come to

him, saying, “ Teacher I, we request that thou wouldest 36 do for us whatsoever we shall ask.” And he said unto 37 them, “What request || ye that I should do for you? Then they said unto him,

Grant unto us that we may sit, one on thy right hand, and the other on thy left hand, 38 in thy glory.” But Jesus said unto them, “Ye know not what

ye ask: can ye drink of the cup which I am to drink of? and be baptized with the baptism which I am 39 to be baptized with ?" And they said unto hin, “ We

can.” And Jesus said unto them, “Ye will drink indeed of the cup which I am to drink of; and will be

baptized with the baptism with which I am to be bap40 tized: but to sit on my right hand, and on my left hand,

is not mine to give, but to those for whom it is prepared.” 41 And when the ten heard it, they began to be moved with

42 indignation against James and John. But Jesus called

them to him, and saith unto them, - Ye know that those

who* rule over the gentiles have dominion over them; 43 and their great ones exercise authority upon them. But

it shall not be so among you : but whosoever desireth to 44 be great among you, must be your servant: and whoso

ever desireth to be chief of you, must be the slave of all. 45 For even the Son of man came not to be served, but to

serve; and to give his life a ransom for many t." 46 And they come to Jericho: and as he was going out

of Jericho, with his disciples and a great multitude, blind

Bartimeus, that is, the son of Timeus, sat by the way-side, 47 begging. And when he heard that it was Jesus of Na

zareth, he began to cry out, and to say, “ Jesus, thou 48 son of David, have pity on me.” And many rebuked

bim, that he might keep silence: but he cried out much 49 more, Thou son of David, have pity on me.” And

Jesus stood still, and commanded him to be called : and they call the blind man, saying unto him,

“ Be of good 50 courage, rise; he calleth thee.” And he cast away his 51 mantle, and rose up, and came to Jesus. And Jesus

spake and saith unto him, “What desirest thou that I

should do unto thee?” Then the blind man said unto 52 him, Master I, that I may receive my sight.” And

Jesus said unto him, “ Depart: thy faith hath restored thee.” And immediately he received his sight, and fol

lowed Jesus in the way. CH. XI. AND when they draw near to Jerusalem, to Beth

phagé, and Bethany, at the mount of Olives, he sendeth 2 two of his disciples, and saith unto them, “Go into the

town over-against you: and immediately as ye enter into it, ye will find a colt tied, whereon no man ever sat:

3 loose it, and bring it to me. And if any one say unto

you, 'Why do ye this ?' say, The Master hath need of 4 it:' and immediately he will send it hither.” And they

went away, and found a colt tied by a door without, in 5 a place where two ways met; and they loose it. And

some of those who stood there said unto them, « What 6 do ye, loosing the colt?” And they said to the men as

Jesus had commanded ; and the men sent them away. 7 And they brought the colt to Jesus, aud cast their mantles 8 on it: and he sat on it. And many spread their mantles

in the way: and others cut down boughs off the trees, 9 and strewed them in the way. And those who went be

fore, and those who followed, cried out, saying, “Ho

sanna * : Blessed be he who cometh in the name of the 10 Lord. Blessed be the kingdom of our father David, which

cometh [in the name of the Lord:] Hosanna * in the 11 highest heavens.And [Jesus] entered into Jerusalem,

and into the temple : and when he had looked round about upon all things, and the evening was now come,

he went out to Bethany with the twelve. 12 And when they were come from Bethany on the mor13 row, he was hungry. And when he saw a fig-tree at a

distance, having leaves, he came, if perhaps he might find any thing upon it; (but when he came to it, he

found nothing but leaves ;) for the season of gathering 14 of figs was not come. And Jesus spake and said unto it,

~ Let no man eat fruit of thee hereafter for ever.” And

his disciples heard it. 15 And they come to Jerusalem : and Jesus went into the

temple, and began to drive out those who sold and bought

in the temple: and he overthrew the tables of the money16 changers, and the seats of those who sold doves; and

would not suffer that any man should carry a vessel 17 through the temple. And he taught, saying unto them,
