not and having ears, hear ye not 2 and do ye not remember 2 19 When I brake , the five loaves among the five thousand, how many panniers full of fragments took ye up "They said to him, “Twelve.” 20 “And when the seven loaves among the four thousand; how many baskets filled with fragments took ye up?” And they said, “Seven.” 21 And he said to them, “Why do ye not understand 2’” 22 THEN he came to Bethsaida : and they brought to him a blind man, and besought him to touch him. 23 And taking the blind man by the hand, he led him out of the village : then spitting on his eyes, and putting his hands upon him, he asked him if he saw anything. 24 And he looking up, said, “I see men, as trees, walking.” 25 Then he put his hand again upon his eyes, [and made him look up:l and he was restored, and saw every one distinctly. 26 And Jesus sent him away to his home, saying, “Neither go into the village, nor tell any one in the village.” 27 THEN Jesus and his disciples departed to the villages of Cesarea, in the dominion of Philip : and on the way, he asked his disciples, saying to them, “Whom do men say that I am ** 28 And they answered, “John the Baptist : but some Elijah : others, one of the prophets.” 29 Then he said to them, “ But whom say ye that I am 7” And Peter answering, said to him, “Thou art the Christ.” 30 And he strictly

charged them that they should tell no one concerning him. 31 And he began to teach them, that the Son of man must suffer many things, and be rejected by the elders and chiefpriests and scribes, and be killed, and within three days rise from the dead. 32 And he spoke these words so plainly, that Peter, taking him aside, reproved him. 33 But he turned about, and looking on his disciples, rebuked Peter, saying, “Get thee hence, adversary: for thou regardest not the things of God, but the things of men.” 34 Then calling to him the multitude, with his disciples, he said to them, “Whosoever would come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me. 35 For whosoever would save his life, shall lose it; but whosoever shall lose [his life] for my sake and that of the gospel, shall save it. 36 (“For what will it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world and forfeit his own life 2 37 Or what would a man give as a ransom for his life?) 38 For whosoever shall be ashamed of me, and of my words, in this adulterous and sinful generation; of him, also, the Son of man will be ashamed, when he shall come in the glory of his Father, with the holy angels.” CH. IX. 1 He said, also, to them, “Verily I tell you, There are some standing here, who' shall not taste of death till they have seen the reign of God ushered in with power.”

2 AND after six days, Jesus took with him Peter, and James and John, and brought them up a high mountain, privately, by themselves: and he was transfigured before them. 3 And his raiment became shining, very white [as snow ; } such as no fuller upon earth can whiten. 4 And Elijah and Moses appeared to them; and were talking with Jesus. 5 Then Peter speaking, said to Jesus, “Master, it is good for us to be here: and let us make three tabernacles; one for thee, and one for Moses, and one for Elijah.” 6 For he knew not what to say; for they were much afraid. 7 And a cloud appeared, overshadowing them: and a voice came out of the sloud, “ This is my beloved Son: hear ye him.” 8 And instantly looking about, they saw no longer any one, save Jesus only, with themselves. 9 And as they were coming down from the mountain, he commanded them, that they should tell no one what things they had seen, till the Son of man should arise from the dead. 10 And they kept the matter to themselves, reasoning one with another, what the rising from the dead could mean. 11 And they asked him, saying, “Why say the scribes that Elijah must first come 2" 12 And he answering, said to them, “Elijah indeed cometh first, and restoreth all things:” he shewed also, how it is written of the Son

of man, that he must suffer many things, and be set at nought. 13 “But I tell you, that indeed Elijah is come, and they have done to him whatsoever they chose; as it is written of him.” 14 AND coming to the other disciples, he saw a great crowd about them, and the scribes disputing with them. 15 And immediately, all the multitude, on seeing him, were greatly astonished; and running to him, saluted him. 16 And he asked them, “...About what do ye dispute among yourselves?” 17 And one of the multitude answering said, “Master, I have brought to thee my son, who hath a dumb spirit"; 18 and wheresoever it seizeth him, it dasheth him on the ground; and he foameth, and grindeth [his] teeth, and wasteth away : and I spake to thy disciples, that they might cast it out; but they could not.” 19 Then Jesus answering [them,) said, “O unbelieving generation, how long shall I be with you ? how long shall I endure you? Bring him to me.” 20 And they brought him to Jesus ; and on seeing him, the spirit immediately convulsed him ; and falling on the ground, he wallowed, foaming. 21 And Jesus asked his father, “How long is it since this hath befallen him P” And he said, “From his childhood. 22 And often it hath cast him into the fire, and into the waters, to destroy him : but if thou canst do any thing,

have compassion on us, and help us.” 23 And Jesus said to him, “If thou canst [believe J All things are possible for him who believeth.” 24 And immediately the father of the child crying out, said with tears, “I believe : help thou mine unbelief.”

25 Now Jesus seeing that a crowd was running together, rebuked the impure spirit, saying to it, “ Thou dumb and deaf spirit, I command thee, Come out of him, and enter no more into him.” 26 And crying out, and convulsing him greatly, it came out of him; and he was as one dead; so that many said, “He is dead.” 27 But Jesus taking him by the hand, raised him up; and he arose.

28 Now when Jesus was come into a house, his disciples asked him privately, “Why could not we cast him out?” 29 And he said to them, “This kind of hower can by no means go forth, but by prayer and fasting.”

30 AND departing thence, they went through Galilee; and he was unwilling that any one should know it. 31. For he taught his disciples, and said to them, “The Son of man is about to be delivered up into the hands of men; and they will kill him; and being killed, he will arise on the third day.” 32 But they understood not what he meant; and were afraid to ask him.

33 AND he came to Capernaum, and, being in a house, he asked them, “What were ye disputing about [among yourselves] on the way to 34 But they kept silence : for they had disputed among themselves, on the way, who should be greatest. S5 And setting down, he called the twelve, and said to them, “If any one desire to be first, he must be last of all, and a servant of all.” S6And taking a little child, he set him in the midst of them : then holding him in his arms, he said to them, 37 “Whosoever shall receive one of such little children in my name, receiveth me : and whosoever shall receive me, receiveth not only me, but him who sent me.”

38 Then John spake to him, saying, “Master, we saw one casting out demons in thy name, and we forbade him. [because he followeth not us.”] 39 But Jesus said, “Forbid him not : for there is none who worketh a miracle in my name, who can readily speak evil of me. 40 For he that is not against you, is for you. 41 For whosoever shall give you a cup of water to drink in my name, because ye are Christ's, verily I tell you, he shall by no means lose his reward. 42 And whosoever shall insnare one of these lowly ones, who believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were put about his neck, and that he were cast into the sea.

43 “And if thy hand insnare"

thee, cut it off; it is better for thee to enter maimed into life, than, having two hands, to go into Gehenna, [into the unquenchable fire;]44[where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.] 45 And if thy foot insnare thee, cut it off: it is better for thee to enter into life lame, than having two feet, to be cast into Gehenna, [into the unquenchable fire s] 46 [where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.] 47 And if thine eye insnare thee, pluck it out: it is better for thee to enter into the kingdom of God with one eye, than having two eyes, to be cast into [the fire of Gehenna; 48 where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched. 49 “For every one shall be salted with fire, and every sacrifice shall be salted with salt. 50 Salt is good: but if the salt become tasteless, wherewith will ye season it : Have salt in yourselves; and be at peace one with another.” CH. X. 1 AND, arising from thence, he came into the borders of Judea, on the further side of Jordan; 2 and the multitude resorted to him again: and, as his custom was, he taught them again. And the Pharisees approaching, asked him, “Is it lawful for a man to put away his wife 2'' This they said, trying him. 3 And he answering, said to them, “What did Moses command you ?” 4 And they said, “Moses suffered us to write a bill of divorce• ment, and to put her away.” 5 And Jesus answering, said

to them, “For the perverseness of your heart, he wrote you this precept. 6 But at the beginning of the creation God made them a male and a female. 7 * On account of this, a man shall leave his father and mother, and cleave to his wife ; and they two shall be one flesh.” 8 So that they are no more two; but one flesh. 9 What, therefore, God hath joined together, let not man put asunder.” 10 And in the house, his disciples again asked him concerning this matter. 11 And he said to them, “ Whosoever shall put away his wife, and shall marry another, committeth adultery against her. 12 And if a woman shall put away her husband, and shall be married to another, she committeth adultery.” 13 AND they brought little children to him, that he might touch them: but the disciples rebuked those who brought them. 14 Now Jesus perceiving this, was much displeased, and said to them, “Suffer the little children to come to me, and forbid them not; for of such is the kingdom of God. 15 Verily I tell you, Whosoever shall not receive the kingdom of God as a little child, he can by no means enter therein.” 16 Then taking them in his arms, and laying his hands on them, he blessed them. 17 AND on his going forth, into the road, one ran, and kneeking down to him, asked him, “Good Teacher, what shall I do, that I may inherit aionian life?” 18 And Jesus said to him, “Why callest thou me good P there is none good, but one, that is God. 19 Thou knowest the commandments, “Do not commit adultery; [Do not commit murder;] Do not steal; Do not bear false witness; Defraud not; Honourthy father and mother.” 20 And he answering, said to him, “Teacher, all these things I have kept from my youth.” 21 Then Jesus looking on him, loved him, and said to him, “In one thing thou art deficient: go, sell whatsoever thou hast, and give to [the] poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come, [taking us, the cross] and follow me.” 22 And he was sad at these words, and went away sorrowful : for he had great possessions. 28 And Jesus looking round about, said to his disciples, “With what difficulty will those that have riches enter into the kingdom of God!” 24 And the disciples were astonished at his words. But Jesus speaking again, said to them, “Children, how difficult is it for those who trust in riches, to enter into the kingdom of God 25 It is easier that a camel should go through [the] eye of a needle, than that a rich man should enter into the kingdom of God.” 26 And they were exceedingly amazed, saying among themselves, “Who then can be saved 2* 27 And Jesus looking on them, said, “With men it is impossible, but not with God: [for with God all things are possible.]

28 PETER began to say to him, “Lo, we have left all, and have followed thee.” 29 Jesus answering, said, “Verily I tell you, There is no one who hath left house, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, [or wife, or children, or lands, for my sake, and for the sake of the gospel, 30 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 age to come, aionian life. 31 But many who are first will be last; and the last first.”

32 NOW being on the way, going up to Jerusalem ; and Jesus walked before them : and they were seized with a horror, and followed him with fear. Then taking the twelve aside, he began to tell them the things which were about to befal him: 33 “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 condemn him to death, and will deliver him up to the gentiles: 34 and they will scoff at him, and will scourge him, and will spit on him, and will kill him ; and the third day he will be raised jrom the dead.”

35 AND James and John, the sons of Zebedee, came to him, saying, “Teacher, we request that thou wouldst do for us whatsoever we shall ask.” 36 And he said to them, “What do ye desire that I should do for you?” 37 Then they said
