be heard in the light; and that
which ye have spoken in the ear
in closets, shall be proclaimed
upon the house-tops.

4 And I say unto you, my
friends, Be not afraid of them
that kill the body, and after that,
have no more that they can do.

5 But I will forewarn you
whom ye shall fear : Fear him,
which, after he hath killed, hath
power to cast into hell ; yea, I
say unto you, Fear him.
6 Are not five

sparrows

sold for two farthings, and not one of them is forgotten before God?

7 But even the very hairs of your head are all numbered.Fear not therefore : ye are of more value than many sparrows.

8 Also I say unto you, Whosoever shall confess me before men, him shall the Son of man also confess before the angels of God.

9 But he that denieth me before men, shall be denied before the angels of God.

10 And whosoever shall speak a word agsinst the Son of man, it shall be forgiven him : but unto him that blasphemeth against the Holy Ghost, it shall not be forgiven.

11 And when they bring you unto the synagogues, and unto magistrates, and powers, take ye no thought how or what thing ye shall answer, or what ye shall say :

12 For the Holy Ghost shall teach

you in the same hour what ye ought to say.

my brother, that he divide the
inheritance with me.

14 And he said unto him,
Man, who made me a judge, or
a divider over you?

15 And he said unto them, Take heed, and beware of covetousness : for a man's life consisteth not in the abundance of the things which he possesseth.

16 And he spake a parable unto them, saying, The ground of a certain rich man brought forth plentifully:

17 And he thought within himself, saying, What shall I do, because I have no room where to bestow my fruits ?

18 And he said, This will I
do: I will pull down my barns,
and build greater; and there will
I bestów all my fruits, and my
goods.

19 And I will say to my soul,
Soul, thou hast much goods laid
up
for

many years; take thine
ease, eat, drink and be merry.

20 But God said unto him, Thou fool, this night thy soul shall be required of thee: then whose shall those things be which thou hast provided?

21 So is he that layeth up treasure for himself, and is not rich toward God.

22 | And he said unto his disciples, Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat; neither for the body what ye shall put on.

23 The life is more than meat, and the body is morethan raiment.

24 Consider the ravens : for they neither sow, nor reap; which neither have store-house. nor barn; and God feedeth them

How much more are ye

better
than the fowls?

25 And which of you with taking thought, can add to his stature one cubit?

26 If ye then be not able to do that thing which is least, why take ye thought for the rest?

27 Consider the lilies how they grow : They toil not, they spin not; and yet I say unto you,

that Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.

28 If then God so clothe the grass, which is to-day in the field, and to-morrow is cast into the oven : how much more will he clothe you, O ye of little faith? 29 And seek not ye

what

ye shall eat or what ye shall drink, neither be

ye

of doubtful mind. 30 For all these things do the nations of the world seek after: and your Father knoweth that ye have need of these things.

31 | But rather seek ye the kingdom of God, and all these things shall be added unto you.

32 Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father's good pleasure. to give you the kingdom.

33 Sell that ye have, and give alms : provide yourselves bags which wax not old, a treasure in the heavens, that faileth not, where no thief approacheth, neither moth corrupteth.

34 For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.

35 Let your loins be girded about, and your lights burning ;

36 And ye yourselves like unto men that wait for their Lord, when he will return from the wedding ; that, when he cometh

and knocketh, they may open
unto him immediately.

37 Blessed are those servants,
whom the Lord when he com-
eth, shall find watching : verily
I say unto you, that he shall gird
himself, and make them to sit
down to meat, and will come
forth and serve them.

38 And if he shall come in the second watch, or come in the third watch, and find them so, blessed are those servants.

39 And this know, that if the goodman of the house had known what hour the thief would come, he would have watched, and not have suffered his house to be broken through.

40 Be ye therefore ready also: for the Son of man cometh at an hour when

ye

think not.
41 | Then Peter said unto
him, Lord, speakest thou this
parable unto us, or even to all?

42 And the Lord said, Who
then is that faithful and wise
steward, whom his lord shall
make ruler overhis household, to
give them their portion of meat
in due season?

43 Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he cometh shall find so doing.

44 Of a truth I say unto you, that he will make him ruler over 'all that he hath.

45 But and if that servant say in his heart, My lord delayeth his coming ; and shall begin to beat the men-servants and maidens, and to eat and drink and to be drunken ;

46 The Lord of that servant will come in a day when he looketh not for him, and at an

hour, when he is not aware and
will cut him in sunder, and will
appoint him his portion with the
unbelievers.

47 And that servant, which
knew his lord's will, and pre-
pared not himself, neither did
according to his will shall be
beaten with many stripes

48 But he that knew not, and did commit things worthy of stripes, shall be beaten with few stripes. For unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required : and to whom men have committed much, of him they will ask the more.

49 | I am come to send fire on the earth, and what will I, if it be already kindled.

50 But I have a baptism to be baptised with, and how am I straite ned till it be accomplished!

51 Suppose ye that I am come to give peace on earth ? I tell you, Nay ; but rather division.

52 For from henceforth there shall be five in one house divided, three against two, and two against three.

53 The father shall be divided against the son, and the son against the father? the mother against the daughter, and the daughter against the mother? the mother-in-law against her daughter-in-law,and the daughter-in-law against her mother-inlaw.

54 | And he said also to the people, When ye see a cloud rise out of the west, straightway ye say, There cometh a shower ; and so it is.
