“ Is it not written, “My house shall be called an house

of prayer for all the nations ?' but ye lave made it a den 18 of robbers." And the scribes and the chief-priests heard

it, and sought how they might destroy him: for they

feared him, because all the multitude was amazed at his 19 doctrine. And when evening was come, he went out

of the city. 20 And in the morning, as they passed by, they saw the 21 fig-tree withered away from the roots. And Peter re

membered, and saith unto him, Master, behold, the

fig-tree which thou didst devote hath withered away.” 22 And Jesus answered, and saith unto them, “Have faith 23 in God. For verily I say unto you, Whosoever shall say

to this mountain, · Bc thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea ;' and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall

believe that what he saith will come to pass ; he shall 24 hare whatsoever he saith. Concerning this matter I say

unto you, All things whatsoever ye ask when ye pray,

believe that ye will receive them, and ye shall have them. 25 And when ye stand praying, forgive, if ye have aught

against any: that your Father also who is in heaven may 26 forgive you your offences.' But if ye do not forgive,

neither will your Father who is in heaven forgive your

offences." 27 And they come again to Jerusalem : and as he was

walking in the temple, there come unto him the chief

priests, and the scribes, and the elders; and say unto 28 him, “ By what authority doest thou these things? and 29 who gave thee this authority to do these things ?” And

Jesus answered and said unto them, “I also will ask you

one question; and answer me, and I will tell you by what 30 authority I do these things. Was the baptism of John

from heaven, or from men ?' answer me.” And they 31. reasoned among themselves, saying, "If we say, : From

heaven;' he will say, 'Why then did ye not believe 32 him?' But [if] we say, From men;' they feared the

people : for all men accounted John to be a prophet in33 deed. And they answered and say unto Jesus, “We

know not." And Jesus answered, and saith unto them, “ Neither do I tell you by what authority I do these

things." Cu. XII. And he began to say unto them in parables, “A

certain man planted a vineyard, and put an hedge about

it, and digged a wine-vat, and built a tower, and let it 2 out to husbandmen, and went into another country. And

at the season he sent to the husbandmen a servant, that he

might receive from the husbandmen of the fruit of the 3 vineyard. But they took him, and beat him, and sent 4 him away empty. And again he sent unto them another

servant: and at him they cast stones, and wounded him 5 in the head, and sent him away shamefully treated. And

he sent another; and him they killed, and many other ; 6 beating some, and killing some. Now having still one

son, beloved by him, he sent him also last unto them, 7 saying, “They will reverence my son.' But those hus

bandmen said among themselves, “This is the heir; come, 8 let us kill him, and the inheritance will be ours.' So

they took him, and killed him, and cast him out of the 9 vineyard. What therefore will the owner of the vineyard

do ? he will come and destroy the husbandınen, and will

give the vineyard to others. 10 “ Have ye not read even this part of scripture? The

stone which the builders rejected, is become the head 11 stone of the corner. This is the Lord's doing; and it is 12 wonderful in our eyes.” And they sought to apprehend

hiin, (but feared the people;) for they knew that he had spoken the parable against them: and they left him, and

departed, 13 Then they send unto him some of the Pharisees, and of 14 the Herodians, to catch him in his discourse. And when

they were come, they say unto him, “Teacher*, we know that thou art true, and carest not for any man: for thou

regardest not the person of men, but teachest the


of God truly: Is it lawful to give tribute unto Cesar, or 15 not? shall we give, or shall we not give ?" But he,

knowing their hypocrisy, said unto them, “Why do ye 16 try me? bring me a denarius, that I may see it.And

they brought it: and he saith unto them, “ Whose is this

image and inscription ?” And they said unto him, “ Ce17 sar's.” And Jesus answered, and said unto them,

- Render unto Cesar the things which are Cesar's, and unto God the things which are God's.” And they wondered at

him. 18 Then the Sadducees come unto him, who say that there 19 is no resurrection; and they asked him, saying, “Teacher*,

Moses hath written unto us: “If a man's brother die, and leave behind him a wife, but leave no children, that

his brother should take his wife, and raise up offspring to 20 his brother. Now there were seven brethren : and the 21 first took a wife, and, dying, left no offspring. And the second took her, and died, neither left he


off22 spring: and the third in like manner: so the seven had

her, and left no offspring : last of all the woman also 23 died. When therefore they shall rise again at the resur

rection, whose wife of them will she be? for the seven 24 had her as their wife.” Then Jesus answered, and said

unto them, “ Do ye not err concerning this matter, not 25 knowing the scriptures, nor the power of God? For

when persons rise again from the dead, they neither marry,

nor are given in marriage : but are as the angels that are 26 in heaven. And concerning the dead, that they rise, have

ye not read in the book of Moses, how at the bush God

spake unto him, saying, “I am the God of Abraham, and 27 the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob?' He is not the

God of the dead, but of the living. Ye therefore greatly

err." 28 Then one of the scribes came near, and, having heard them reasoning together, and perceiving that Jesus had

* N. m. Master, N. t.

answered them well, asked him, “Which is the first com29 mandment of all?" And Jesus answered him, “ The first

commandment of all is, · Hear, O Israel; The Lord is 30 our God: the Lord is one *: and thou shalt love the Lord

thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and

with all thy mindt, and with all thy strength. This is 31 the first commandment. And the second is like it, " Thou

shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.' There is none other 32 commandment greater than these.” And the scribe said

unto him, In truth, Master, thou hast said well: for there is one God; and there is none other but he: and to love him with all the heart, and with all the under

standing, and with all the soul, and with all the strength, 33 and to love his neighbour as himself, is more than all 34 whole burnt-offerings and sacrifices.” And when Jesus

saw that he answered wisely, he said unto him, “ Thou art not far from the kingdom of God.” And no man

after that durst ask him any further question. 35 Then Jesus spake and said, while he taught in the tem

ple, “ How say the scribes that Christ is the son of David? 36 For David himself said by the holy spirit, “Jehovah saith

unto my Lord, Sit thou on my right hand, till I make 37 thine enemies thy footstool.' David therefore himself

calleth him Lord : how is he then his son ?" And the

multitude of the people heard him gladly. 38 Then he said unto them in his teaching, " Beware of 39 the scribes, who like to walk in robes, and loves salutations in the market-places, and the chief seats in the

sy40 nagogues, and the chief places at feasts: who devour the

families of widows, and for a show make long prayers :

these will receive an heavier condemnation.” 41 And Jesus sat over-against-the treasury, and beheld

* See Clarke, “is one Lord,” N.

+ “and with all thy mirid.” This clause is omitted in the Camb, and some other MSS.

and salutations in the market-places, and like, N.

how the multitude cast money into the treasury: and 42 many that were rich cast in much. And a certain poor

widow came, and cast in two mites, which make a far43 thing. And he called unto him his disciples, and said

unto them, “Verily I say unto you, that this poor wi

dow hath cast in more than all who have cast into the 44 treasury. For all they cast in from their abundance:

but she from her want cast in all which she had, even all

her substance." Ch. xli. And as he was going out of the temple, one of his

disciples saith unto him, “ Master, see what kind of 2 stones, and what kind of buildings are here.And Jesus

answered, and said unto him, “ Seest thou these great buildings ? there will not be left one stone upon another,

which will not be thrown down.” 3 And as he was sitting upon the mount of Olives, over

against the temple, Peter, and James, and John, and 4 Andrew, asked him privately, “Tell us, when will these

things be ? and what will be the sign when all these things 5 are about to be accomplished ? And Jesus answered them,

and began to say, “ Take heed that no man deceive you: 6 For many will come in my name, saying, “I am the 7 Christ ;' and will deceive many. But when ye shall hear

of wars, and rumours of wars, be not troubled : for these

things must come to pass; but the end will not be yet. 8 For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against

kingdom: and there will be earthquakes in many places,

and there will be famines and tumults. These things are 9 the beginnings of sorrows. But take ye heed to yourselves;

for men will deliver you up to councils; and ye will be beaten in the synagogues, and ye will be brought before

rulers and kings for my sake; for a testimony unto them. 10 And the gospel must first be preached among all the gen11 tiles. But when they bring you and deliver you up,

take no anxious thought beforehand what ye shall speak, nor meditate : but whatsoever shall be given you at the
