he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word 1 Gr. that proceedeth out of the 5 mouth of God. Then the devil taketh him into the holy city; and he set him on the 2 pin6 nacle of the temple, and saith unto him, If thou art the Son of God, cast thyself down: for it is written,

7 Jesus said unto him, Again it is written, Thou shalt not 8 tempt the Lord thy God. Again, the devil taketh him unto an exceeding high mountain, and sheweth him all the kingdoms of the world, and the 9 glory of them; and he said unto him, All these things will I give thee, if thou wilt fall 10 down and worship me. Then saith Jesus unto him, Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him 11 only shalt thou serve. Then the devil leaveth him; and behold, angels came and ministered unto him.

12 Now when he heard that John was delivered up, he withdrew 13 into Galilee; and leaving Nazareth, he came and dwelt in Capernaum, which is by the sea, in the borders of Zebulun 14 and Naphtali: that it might be fulfilled which was spoken 3 by Isaiah the prophet, saying, The land of Zebulun and the land of Naphtali,

And walking by the sea of 18 Galilee, he saw two brethren, Simon who is called Peter, and Andrew his brother, casting a net into the sea; for they were fishers. And he saith 19 unto them, Come ye after me, and I will make you fishers of men. And they straightway 20 left the nets, and followed him. And going on from thence 21 he saw other two brethren, 6 James the son of Zebedee, and John his brother, in the boat with Zebedee their father, mending their nets; and he called them. And they straight- 22 way left the boat and their father, and followed him.

And Jesus went about in 23 all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the 8 gospel of the kingdom, and healing all manner of disease and all manner of sickness among the people. And the 24 report of him went forth into all Syria and they brought unto him all that were sick, holden with divers diseases ties read and torments, possessed with devils, and epileptic, and palsied; and he healed them. And 25 there followed him great multitudes from Galilee and Decapolis and Jerusalem and Judæa and from beyond Jordan.

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

Think not that I came to destroy the law or the prophets: I came not to destroy, 7 Some 18 but to fulfil. For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass away, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass away from the law, till all things be ac19 complished. Whosoever there

fore shall break one of these

least commandments, and shall
teach men so, shall be called
least in the kingdom of hea-
ven: but whosoever shall do
and teach them, he shall be
called great in the kingdom
of heaven. For I say unto you, 20
that except your righteousness
shall exceed the righteousness
of the scribes and Pharisees,
ye shall in no wise enter into
the kingdom of heaven.

Ye have heard that it was 21
said to them of old time, Thou
shalt not kill; and whosoever
shall kill shall be in danger
of the judgement: but I say 22
unto you, that every one who
is angry with his brother 2 shall
be in danger of the judgement;
and whosoever shall say to his
brother, Raca, shall be in
danger of the council; and
whosoever shall say, Thou
fool, shall be in danger 5 of
the 6 hell of fire. If therefore 23
thou art offering thy gift at
the altar, and there remem-
berest that thy brother hath
aught against thee, leave there 24
thy gift before the altar, and
go thy way, first be reconciled
to thy brother, and then come
and offer thy gift. Agree with 25
thine adversary quickly, whiles
thou art with him in the way;
lest haply the adversary deliver
thee to the judge, and the judge
7 deliver thee to the officer,
and thou be cast into prison.
Verily I say unto thee, Thou 26
shalt by no means come out
thence, till thou have paid the
last farthing.

Ye have heard that it was 27 said, Thou shalt not commit adultery: but I say unto you, 28 that every one that looketh on a woman to lust after her hath ties omit committed adultery with her already in his heart. And if 29 thy right eye causeth thee to stumble, pluck it out, and cast it from thee: for it is profi

able for thee that one of thy members should perish, and not thy whole body be cast 30 into hell. And if thy right hand causeth thee to stumble, cut it off, and cast it from thee: for it is profitable for thee that one of thy members should perish, and not thy 31 whole body go into 1 hell. It was said also, Whosoever shall put away his wife, let him give her a writing of divorcement: 32 but I say unto you, that every one that putteth away his wife, saving for the cause of fornication, maketh her an adulteress and whosoever shall marry her when she is put away committeth adultery.

Again, ye have heard that
it was said to them of old

34 the Lord thine oaths: but I
say unto you, Swear not at all;
neither by the heaven, for it
35 is the throne of God; nor by

Ye have heard that it was 43 said, Thou shalt love thy neighbour, and hate thine enemy: but I say unto you, Love your 44 enemies, and pray for them that persecute you; that ye may 45 be sons of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sendeth rain on the just and the unjust. For 46 if ye love them that love you, what reward have ye? do not even the 7 publicans the same? And if ye salute your brethren 47 only, what do ye more than others? do not even the Gentiles the same? Ye there- 48 fore shall be perfect, as your heavenly Father is perfect.

Take heed that ye do not 6 your righteousness before men, to be seen of them: else ye have no reward with your Father which is in heaven.

When therefore thou doest 2

alms, sound not a trumpet before thee, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, that they may have glory of men. Verily I say unto you, They have received their reward. But when thou doest 3 alms, let not thy left hand know what thy right hand doeth that thine alms may 4 be in secret: and thy Father which seeth in secret shall recompense thee.

And when ye pray, ye shall 5 not be as the hypocrites: for they love to stand and pray in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen of men. Verily I say unto you, They have received their reward. But thou, when thou prayest, 6 enter into thine inner chamber, and having shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret, and thy Father which seeth in secret shall recompense thee. And in praying 7


use not vain repetitions, as the Gentiles do: for they think that they shall be heard for 8 their much speaking. Be not therefore like unto them: for your Father knoweth what things ye have need of, before 9 ye ask him. After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed 10 be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done, as in 11 heaven, so on earth. Give us 12 this day 2 our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we also 13 have forgiven our debtors. And bring us not into temptation, but deliver us from 3 the evil 14 one. For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you.

Moreover when ye fast, be not, as the hypocrites, of a sad countenance: for they disfigure their faces, that they may be seen of men to fast. Verily I say unto you, They have received their reward. 17 But thou, when thou fastest, anoint thy head, and wash 18 thy face; that thou be not seen of men to fast, but of thy Father which is in secret: and thy Father, which seeth in secret, shall recompense thee.


Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon the earth, where moth and rust doth consume, and where thieves 20 5 break through and steal: but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth consume, and where thieves do not 5 break

21 through nor steal: for where 6 Or, age thy treasure is, there will thy 22 heart be also. The lamp of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy

whole body shall be full of light. But if thine eye be evil, 23 thy whole body shall be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in thee be darkness, how great is the darkness! No man can serve two 24 masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon. Therefore I say 25 unto you, Be not anxious for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than the food, and the body than the raiment? Be- 26 hold the birds of the heaven, that they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; and your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are not ye of much more value than they? And which of you by being 27 anxious can add one cubit unto his stature? And why 28 are ye anxious concerning raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin: yet I say unto you, that even 29 Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. But if God doth so clothe the 30 grass of the field, which to-day is, and to-morrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith? Be not therefore 31 anxious, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed? For after all 32 these things do the Gentiles seek; for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things. But 33 seek ye first his kingdom, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. Be not therefor

anxious for the morrow: for the morrow will be anxious for itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.

Judge not, that ye be not judged. For with what judge ment ye judge, ye shall be judged and with what measure ye mete, it shall be mea3 sured unto you. And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother's eye, but considerest not the beam that is 4 in thine own eye? Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me cast out the mote out of thine eye; and lo, the beam 5 is in thine own eye? Thou hypocrite, cast out first the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly 2 Many to cast out the mote out of thy brother's eye.


Give not that which is holy unto the dogs, neither cast your pearls before the swine, lest haply they trample them under their feet, and turn and rend you.

ancient authori

ties read How narrow is the gate, &c.

7 Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened 8 unto you: for every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him 3 Gr. that knocketh it shall be open9 ed. Or what man is there of you, who, if his son shall ask him for a loaf, will give him 10 a stone; or if he shall ask for

a fish, will give him a serpent? 11 If ye then, being evil, know



how to give good gifts unto your children, how much more shall your Father which is in Gr. heaven give good things to 12 them that ask him? All things therefore whatsoever ye would that men should do unto you, even so do ye also unto them: for this is the law and the prophets.


Enter ye in by the narrow cate: for wide is the gate,

and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many be they that enter in thereby. 2 For narrow is the 14 gate, and straitened the way, that leadeth unto life, and few be they that find it.

Beware of false prophets, 15 which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly are ravening wolves. By their fruits 16 ye shall know them. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? Even so every good 17 tree bringeth forth good fruit; but the corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. A good tree 18 cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt_tree bring forth good fruit. Every 19 tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. Therefore 20 by their fruits ye shall know them. Not every one that 21 saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. Many will say to 22 me in that day, Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy by thy name, and by thy name cast out 3 devils, and by thy name do many 4 mighty works? And 23 then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity. Every one therefore 24 which heareth these words of mine, and doeth them, shall be likened unto a wise man, which built his house upon the rock and the rain de- 25 scended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not for it was founded upon the rock. And every one that 26 heareth these words of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand and the rain de- 27
