MATTHEW XVIII. Take heed that ye despise not one of these little ones; for I say unto you,

that in heaven their angels do always behold 11 the face of my Father which is in heaven. For the Son of 12 man is come to save that which was lost. How think ye?

unto you, that if two of you shall agree on earth as touching

any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my 20 Father which is in heaven. For where two or three are

gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.

Then came Peter to him, and said ; Lord, how oft shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him ? till seven 22 times ? Jesus saith unto him; Not, I say unto thee, until 23 seven times, but until seventy times seven. Therefore is

the kingdom of heaven likened unto a certain king, which 24 would take account of his servants. And when he had be

gun to reckon, one was brought unto him which owed him 25 ten thousand talents. But forasmuch as he had not to pay,

his lord commanded him to be sold, and his wife and chil26 dren, and all that he had, and payment to be made. The

servant therefore fell down,' and worshipped him, saying ; 27 Lord have patience with me, and I will pay thee all. Then

the Lord of that servant was moved with compassion, and 28 loosed him, and forgave him the debt. But the same ser

vant went out, and found one of his fellow-servants, which owed him an hundred pence ; and he laid hands on him, and

took him by the throat, saying ; Pay me that thou owest. 29 And his fellow-servant fell down and besought him, saying ; 30 Have patience with me, and I will pay thee all. And he

would not ; but went and cast him into prison, till he should 31 pay the debt.

So when his fellow-servants saw what was done, they were very sorry ; and came and told unto their


MATTHEW XVIII. 32 lord all that was done. Then his lord, after that he had

called him, said unto him ; 0 thou wicked servant, I forgave 33 thee all that debt, because thou desiredst me; shouldest not

thou also have had compassion on thy fellow-servant, even as 34 I had pity on thee? And his lord was wroth, and delivered

him to the tormentors, till he should pay all that was due un35 to him. So likewise shall my heavenly Father do also

unto you, if ye from your hearts forgive not every one his brother.

LUKE IX. And it came to pass, when the time was come that he should be received up, he steadfastly set his face to go to Jerusalem. 52 And he sent messengers before his face; and they went

and entered into a village of the Samaritans to make ready 53 for him. And they did not receive him, because his face 54 was as though he would go to Jerusalem. And when his

disciples, James and John, saw this, they said ; Lord, wilt

thou that we command fire to come down from heaven, and 55 consume them, even as Elias did ? But he turned, and re

buked them, and said ; Know ye not what manner of spirit 56 ye are of? And they went to another village.
