visited his people. And this rumor of him went forth throughout all 17 Judea, and throughout all the region round about.

AND the disciples of John showed him of all these 18 Christ's testimony concerning Joho. things. And John, calling unto him two of his disciples, 19

sent them to Jesus, saying, Art thou he that should come ? or look we for another ? When the men were come unto him, they said, 20 John Baptist hath sent us unto thee, saying, Art thou he that should come ? or look we for ano er? And in that same hour he cured many 21 of their infirmities, and plagues, and of evil spirits.; and unto many that were blind he gave sight. Then Jesus answering, said unto them, Go 22 your way, and tell John what things ye have seen and heard; how that the blind see, the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed, the deaf hear, the dead are raised, to the poor the gospel is preached. And blessed is he, 23 whosoever shall not be offended in me. And when the messengers of 24 John were departed, he began to speak unto the people concerning John, What went ye out into the wilderness to see ? A reed shaken with the wind ? 'But what went ye out to see ? A man clothed in soft raiment ? 25 Behold, they which are gorgeously apparelled, and live delicately, are in kings' courts. But what went ye out to see ? A prophet ? Yea, I say 26 unto you, and much more than a prophet. This is he, of whom it is 27 written, “ Behold, I send my messenger before thy face, which shall prepare thy way before thee.” For I say unto you, Among those that are 28 born of women, there is not a greater prophet than John the Baptist : but he that is least in the kingdom of God, is greater than he. (And all the 29 people that heard him, and the publicans, justified God, being baptized with the baptism of John. But the Pharisees and lawyers rejected the 30 counsel of God against themselves, being not baptized of him.) And the 31 Lord said, Whereunto then shall I liken the men of this generation ? and to what are they like? They are like unto children sitting in the market- 32 place, and calling one to another, and saying, We have piped unto you, and ye have not danced; we have mourned to you, and ye have not wept. For.John the Baptist came neither eating bread, nor drinking 33 wine ; and ye say, He hath a devil. The Son of man is come eating and 34 drinking ; and ye say, Behold a gluttonous man, and a wine-bibber, a friend of publicans and sinners ! But Wisdom is justified of all her chil- 35 dren.

AND one of the Pharisees desired him that he would 36 Christ anointed by a female penitent ; eat with him. And he went into the Pharisee's house, forgives her sins.

and sat down to meat. And behold, a woman in the city, 37 which was a sinner, when she knew that Jesus sat at meat in the Pharisee's house, brought an alabaster-box of ointment, ' and stood at his feet 38 behind him weeping, and began to wash his feet with tears, and did wipe them with the hairs of her head, and kissed his feet, and anointed them with the ointment. Now, when the Pharisee which had bidden him, saw 39 it, he spake within himself, saying, This man, if he were a prophet, would have known who and what manner of woman this is that toucheth him : for she is a sinner. And Jesus answering, said unto him, Simon, I have.40 somewhat to say unto thee. And he saith, Master, say on. ' There was 41 a certain creditor, which had two debtors : the one owed five hundred pence, and the other fifty. And when they had nothing to pay, he frankly 42 forgave them both. Tell me, therefore, which of them will love him most ? Simon answered and said, I suppose that he, to whom he forgave 43 most. And he said unto him, Thou hast rightly judged. And he turned 44 to the woman, and said unto Simon, Seest thou this woman? I entered into thy house, thou gavest me no water for my feet: but she hath wash

ed my feet with tears, and wiped them with the hairs of her head. Thou 45 gavest me no kiss ; but this woman, since the time I came in, hath not ceased to kiss my feet. My head with oil thou didst not anoint: but this 46 woman hath anointed my feet with ointment. Wherefore, I say unto thee, 47 Her sins, which are many, are forgiven ; for she loved much : but to whom little is forgiven, the same loveth little. And he said unto her, Thy 48 sins are forgiven. And they that sat at meat with him, began to say 49 within themselves, Who is this that forgiveth sins also ? And he said 50 to the woman, Thy faith.hath saved thee: go in peace. Christ preaches again AND it came to pass afterward, that he went through- 8 throughout Galilee. out every city and village, preaching and showing the glad tidings of the kingdom of God: and the twelve were with him, ' and 2 certain women, which had been healed of evil spirits and infirmities, Mary called Magdalene, out of whom went seven devils, ' and Joanna 3 the wife of Chuza, Herod's steward, and Susanna, and many others, which ministered unto him of their substance.

And when much people were gathered together, and sower. Matt. xiii

. 1. were come to him out of every city, he spake by a parable.

A sower went out to sow his seed : and as he sowed, 5 some fell by the way-side ; and it was trodden down, and the fowls of the air devoured it. And some fell upon a rock; and as soon as it was 6 sprung up, it withered away, because it lacked moisture. And some fell 7 among thorns; and the thorns sprang up with it, and choked it. And 8 other fell on good ground, and sprang up, and bare fruit a hundred-fold. And when he had said these things, he cried, He that hath ears to hear, let him hear. Why parables were

And his disciples asked him, saying, What might this 9 used. Matt. xiii. 10. parable be? And he said, Unto you it is given to know 10

the mysteries of the kingdom of God: but to others in parables ; that seeing they might not see, and hearing they might not understand. Explanation of the

Now the parable is this : The seed is the word of God: 11 parable. Matt. xiii. those by the way-side, are they that hear; then cometh 12

18. Mark iv. 14. the devil, and taketh away the word out of their hearts, lest they should believe and be saved. They on the rock are they, which, 13 when they hear, receive the word with joy; and these have no root, which for a while believe, and in time of temptation fall away. And that 14 which fell among thorns, are they, which, when they have heard, go forth, and are choked with cares, and riches, and pleasures of this life, and bring no fruit to perfection. But that on the good ground are they, 15 which in an honest and good heart, having heard the word, keep it, and bring forth fruit with patience.

No man, when he hath lighted a candle, covereth it with 16

a vessel, or putteth it under a bed; but setteth it on a candlestick, that they which enter in may see the light. For nothing is 17 secret, that shall not be made manifest ; neither any thing hid, that shall not be known, and come abroad. Take heed therefore how ye hear: 18 for whosoever hath, to him shall be given ; and whosoever hath not, from him shall be taken even that which he seemeth to have.

Then came to him his mother and his brethren, and 19 disciples, his rela: could not come at him for the press. And it was told 20

him by certain, which said, Thy mother and thy brethren stand without, desiring to see thee. And he answered and said unto 21 them, My mother and my brethren are these which hear the word of God, and do it.

NOW it came to pass on a certain day, that he went 22 sea, and calms the into a ship with his disciples : and he said unto them, 23. Mark iv. 35. Let us go over unto the other side of the lake. And they launched forth. But as they sailed, he fell asleep: and there came down 23 a storm of wind on the lake ; and they were filled with water, and were in jeopardy. And they came to him, and awoke him, saying, Master, 24 Master, we perish! Then he arose, and rebuked the wind, and the raging of the water: and they ceased, and there was a calm. And he said 25 unto them, Where is your faith ? And they, being afraid, wondered, saying one to another, What manner of man is this! for he commandeth even the winds and water, and they obey him.

AND they arrived at the country of the Gadarenes, 26 Malt. viii. 28. Mark which is over against Galilee. And when he went forth 27

to land, there met him out of the city a certain man, which had devils long time, and ware no clothes, neither abode in any house, but in the tombs. When he saw Jesus, he cried out, and fell down before 28 him, and with a loud voice said, What have I to do with thee, Jesus, thou Son of God most high ? I beseech thee, torment me not. _(For he had 29 commanded the unclean spirit to come out of the man. For oftentimes it had caught him: and he was kept bound with chains, and in fetters; and he brake the bands, and was driven of the devil into the wilderness.) And Jesus asked him, saying, What is thy name? And he said, Legion : 30 because many devils were entered into him. And they besought him, 31 that he would not command them to go out into the deep. And there 32 was there a herd of many swine feeding on the mountain : and they besought him that he would suffer them to enter into them. And he suffered them. Then went the devils out of the man, and entered into the swine: 33 and the herd ran violently down a steep place into the lake, and were choked. When they that fed them saw what was done, they fled, and 34 went and told it in the city and in the country. Then they went out to 35 see what was done; and came to Jesus, and found the man out of whom the devils were departed, sitting at the feet of Jesus, clothed, and in his right mind : and they were afraid. They also which saw it, told them 36 by what means he that was possessed of the devils was healed. Then 37 the whole multitude of the country of the Gadarenes round about, besought him to depart from them ; for they were taken with great fear. And he went up into the ship, and returned back again. 'Now, the man 38 out of whom the devils were departed, besought him that he might be with him. But Jesus sent him away, saying, ' Return to thine own 39 house, and show how great things God hath done unto thee. And he went his way, and published throughout the whole city, how great things Jesus had done unto him.

Jairus' daughter AND it came to pass, that, when Jesus was returned, 40 and the pedimthe people gladly received him : for they were all waiting ix. 18. Mark v. 21. for him. And behold, there came a man named Jairus, 41 and he was a ruler of the synagogue: and he fell down at Jesus' feet, and besought him that he would come into his house : for he had one only 42 daughter, about twelve years of age, and she lay a dying. But as he went, the people thronged him. And a woman having an issue of blood .43 twelve years, which had spent all her living upon physicians, neither could be healed of any, 'came behind him and touched the border of his 44 garment: and immediately her issue of blood stanched. And Jesus said, 45 Who touched me? When all denied, Peter, and they that were with him, said, Master, the multitude throng thee, and press thee, and sayest thou, Who touched me? And Jesus said, Somebody hath touched me: 46 for I perceive that virtue is gone out of me. And when the woman saw 47

that she was not hid, she came trembling, and falling down before him, she declared unto him before all the people for what cause she had touched him, and how she was healed immediately. And he said unto 48 her, Daughter, be of good comfort : thy faith hath made thee whole ; go

While he yet spake, there cometh one from the ruler of 49 the synagogue's house, saying to him, Thy daughter is dead : trouble not the Master. But when Jesus heard it, he answered him, saying, Fear 50 not: believe only, and she shall be made whole. And when he came 51 into the house, he suffered no man to go in, save Peter, and James, and John, and the father and the mother of the maiden. And all wept and 52 bewailed her : but he said, Weep not : she is not dead, but sleepeth. | And they laughed him to scorn, knowing that she was dead. ' And he 53 put them all out, and took her by the hand, and called, saying, Maid, arise! And her spirit came again, and she arose straightway: and he 55 commanded to give her meat. And her parents were astonished: but he 56 charged them that they should tell no man what was done.

THEN he called his twelve disciples together, and 9 the welve Apostles. gave th

power and authority over all devils, and to cure

diseases. And he sent them to preach the kingdom of 2 God, and to heal the sick. And he said unto them, Take nothing for 3 your journey, neither staves, nor scrip, neither bread, neither money; neither have two coats apiece. And whatsoever house ye enter into, 4 there abide, and thence depart. And whosoever will not receive you, 5 when ye go out of that city, shake off the very dust from your feet for a testimony against them. And they departed, and went through the towns, 6 preaching the gospel, and healing every where.

NOW Herod the tetrarch heard of all that was done by 7 Christ. Maltxiv. him : and he was perplexed, because it was said of some,

1, 2. Mark vi. 14. that John was risen from the dead; and of some, that 8 Elias had appeared : and of others, that one of the old prophets was risen again. And Herod said, John have I beheaded; but who is this 9 of whom I hear such things ? And he desired to see him.

AND the apostles, when they were returned, told him 10 Matt. xiv. 13. Na k all that they had done. And he took them, and went vi. 30. John vi lo aside privately into a desert place, belonging to the city called Bethsaida. And the people, when they knew it, followed him : 11 and he received them; and spake unto them of the kingdom of God, and healed them that had need of healing.

they may go into the towns and country round about, and lodge, and get victuals : for we are here in a desert place. But he said 13 unto them, Give ye them to eat. And they said, We have no more but five loaves and two fishes ; except we should go and buy meat for all this people. '(For they were about five thousand men.) And he said to his 14 disciples, Make them sit down by fifties in a company. And they did so, 15 and made them all sit down. Then he took the tive loaves, and the two 16 fishes, and looking up to heaven, he blessed them, and brake, and gave to the disciples to set before the multitude. And they did eat, and were all 17 filled; and there was taken up of fragments that remained to them twelve baskets.

prophets is risen again. He said unto them, But who say ye that I am ? 20 Peter answering, said, The Christ of God.

And he straitly charged them, and commanded them 21 death. Mait. xvi. 21. to tell no man that thing, 'saying, The Son of man 22

must suffer many things, and be rejected of the elders, and chief priests, and scribes, and be slain, and be raised the third day. And he said to them all, If any man will come after me, let him deny 23 himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me. For whosoever will 24 save his life, shall lose it: but whosoever will lose his life for my sake, the same shall save it. (For what is a man advantaged, if he gain the 25 whole world, and lose himself, or be cast away.) For whosoever shall 26 be ashamed of me, and of my words, of him shall the Son of man be ashamed, when he shall come in his own glory, and in his Father's, and of the holy angels. But I tell you of a truth, there be some standing 27 here which shall not taste of death till they see the kingdom of God. Christ is transfigured.

AND it came to pass, about an eight days after these 28 sayings, he took Peter, and John, and James, and went

up into a mountain to pray. And as he prayed, the fashion 29 of his countenance was altered, and his raiment was white and glistering. And, behold, there talked with him two men, which were Moses and 30 Elias: who appeared in glory, and spake of his decease which he should 31 accomplish at Jerusalem. But Peter and they that were with him were 32 heavy with sleep: and when they were awake, they saw his glory, and the two men that stood with him. And it came to pass, as they depart- 33 ed from him, Peter said unto 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 Elias: not knowing what he said. While he thus spake, there 34 came a cloud, and overshadowed them : and they feared as they entered into the cloud. And there came a voice out of the cloud, saying, “ This 35 is my beloved Son : hear him.' And when the voice was past, Jesus was 36 found alone. And they kept it close, and told no man in those days any of those things which they had seen.

AND it came to pass, that on the next day, when they 37 man cured: Natt. were come down from the hill, much people met him. xvii. 14. Mark ix. 14. And behold, a man of the company cried out, saying, 38 Master, I beseech thee look upon my son : for he is mine only child. And lo, a spirit taketh him, and he suddenly crieth out; and it teareth 39 him that he foameth again, and bruising him, hardly departeth from himn. And I besought thy disciples to cast him out, and they could not. 40 And Jesus answering, said, O faithless and perverse generation, how long 41 shall I be with you, and suffer you ? Bring thy son hither. And as he 42 was yet a coming, the devil threw him down, and tare him. And Jesus rebuked the unclean spirit, and healed the child, and delivered him again to his father. And they were all amazed at the mighty power of 43 God...

But while they wondered every one at all things which his death and resur- Jesus did, he said unto his disciples, 'Let these sayings 44

22. Mark ix. 30. sink down into your ears : for the Son of man shall be delivered into the hands of men. But they understood not this saying, and 45 it was hid from them, that they perceived it not: and they feared to ask him of that saying.

THEN there arose a reasoning among them, which of 46 ciples humility is them should be greatest. And Jesus perceiving the thought 47
