Have salt in yourselves,

ye despise not one of these little ones ? for I say

That in heatheir angels do always behold the face of my Father which is in heaven.

11 For the Son of man is come to save that which was lust. 12 How think


? if a man have an hundred sheep, and one of them be gone astray, doth he not leave the ninety and nine, and goeth into the mountains, and seeketh that which is gone astray?

13 And if so be that he find it, verily I say unto you, he rejoiceth more of that sheep, than of the ninety and nine which went not astray.

14 Even so it is not the will of your

your Father which is in heaven, that one of these little ones should perish.

15 1 Moreover, if thy brother shall trespass against thee, go and tell him his fault between thee and him alone ; if he shall hear thee, thou hast gained thy brother.

18 Verily I say unto yoų, Whatsoever ye shall bind on earth, shall be bound in heaven : and whatsoever ye shall loose on earth, shall be loosed in heaven.

19 Again I say 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 Father which is in heaven.

20 For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.

21 | Then came Peter to him, and said, Lord, how oft shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him ? till seven times?

22 Jesus saith unto him, I say not unto thee,Until seven times: but, Until seventy times seven.

23 Therefore is the kingdom of heaven likened unto a certain king, which would take account of his servants.

24 And when he had begun to reckon, one was brought unto him, which owed him ten thousand talents.

25 But forasmuch as he had not to pay, his lord commanded him to be sold, and his wife and children, and all that he had, and payment to be made.





CHAP. XVIII. 26 The servant therefore fell down and worshipped him, saying, Lord, have patience with me, and I will pay thee all.

27 Then the lord of that servant was moved with compassion,and loosed him, and forgave him the debt.

28 But the same servant went out, and found one of his fellowservants, which owed manhundred 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 at his feet, and besought him, saying, Have patience with me, and I will


thee all. 30 And he would not: but went and cast him into prison, till he should


the debt. 31 So when his fellow-servants saw what was done, they were very sorry, and came and told unto their lord all that was done.

32 Then his lord, after that he had called him, said unto him. O thou wicked servant, I forgave thee all that debt, because thou desiredst me :

33 Shouldst not thou also have had compassion on thy fellow-servant, even as I had pity on thee ?

34 And his lord was wrath, and delivered him to the tormentors, till he should pay all that was due unto him.

35So likewise shall my heavenly Father do also unto you,


ye from your hearts forgive not every one his brother their trespasses.

of $ 80. Seventy Disciples are
instructed and sent out.
AFTER these things the Lord
appointedotherseventyalso, *and
sent them two and two before
his face into every city,and place,
whither he himself would come.

2 Therefore said he unto them,
The harvest truly is great, but
the labourers are few : pray ye
therefore the Lord of the har-
vest, that he would send forth
labourers into his harvest.

3 Go your ways: behold, I send you forth as lambs among wolves.

4. Carry neither purse, nor
scrip, nor shoes : and salute no
man by the way.

5 And into whatsoever house
ye enter, first say, Peace be to
this house,
6 And if the son of peace

there, your peace shall rest up-
on it: if not, it shall turn to you

7 And in the same house remain, eating and drinking such things as they give : for the labourer is worthy of his hire. Go not from house to house.

8 And into whatsoever city ye enter, and they receive you, eat such things as are set before you.

9 And heal the sick that are therein, and say unto them, The kingdom of God is come nigh unto you.

10 But into whatsoever city ye enter, and they receive you not, go your ways out into the streets of the same, and say,
