JOHN. CHAP. XIII. $ 88." Jesus restores a Woman ; who }, had been bowed down for eighteen Years.

10 I And he was teaching in one of the synagogues on the sabbath.

11'And, behold, there was a woman which had a spirit of infirmity eighteen years, and was bowed together, and could in no wise lift up herself.

12 And when Jesus saw her, he called her to him, and said unto her, Woman, thou art loosed from thine infirmity.

13 And he laid his hands on her : and immediately she was made straight, and glorified God.

14 And the ruler of the synagogue answered with indigna. tion, because that Jesus had heal. ed on the sabbath-day, and said unto the people, There are six days in which men ought to work : in them therefore come and be healed, and not on the sabbath-day.

15 The Lord then answered him, and said, Thou hypocrite, doth not each one of you on the sabbath tooge his ox or his ass from the stall, and lead him

away to watering?

16 And ought not this woman, being a daughter of Abraham, whom Satan hath bound, lo, these eighteen years, be loosed from this bond on the sabbath-day?

17 And when he had said these things, all his adversaries were ashamed : and all the people rejoiced for all the glorious things that were done by him.





18 Then said he, Unto
what is the kingdom of God
like ? and whereunto shall I re-
semble it? 0.1

19 It is like a grain of mus-
terd seed, which a man took,
! and cast into his garden, and it

grew, and waxed a great tree ; and the fowls of the air lodged in the branches of it.

20 And again he said, Whereunto shall I liken the kingdom of God?

21 It is like leaven, which a
woman took and hid in three

measures of meal, till the whole
was leavened.

$89. Fesus replies to the
Question, Are there few that
be saved ?

22 And he went through the cities and villages, teaching, and journeying toward Jerusalem.

23 Then said one unto him, .: Lord, are there few that be saved? And he said unto them,

24 | Strive to enter in at the straight gate: for many, I : .. say unto yoy, will seek to enter

in, and shall not be able.

24 When once the master of the house is risen up and hath shut to the door, and ye begin to stand without, and to knock at the door, saying, Lord, lord, open unto us ; and he shall answer and say unto you, I know you not whence you are :

26 Then shall ye begin to
say, We have eaten and drunk
in thy presence, and thou hast
taught in our streets.

27 But he shall say,
I know you not whence you are;

I tell you







depart from me all workers
of iniquity.

28 There shall be weeping
and gnashing of teeth, when ye
shall see Abraham, and Isaac,
and Jacob, and all the prophets,
in the kingdom of God, and
you yourselves thrust out.

29 And they shall come from the east, and from the west, and from the north, and from the south, and shail sit down in the kingdom of God.

30 And behold, there are last which shall be first, and there are first which shall be last.

31 | The same day there came certain of the Pharisees, saying unto him, Get thee out, and depart hence : for Herod will kill thee.

32 And he said unto them,
Go ye and tell that fox, Behold,
I cast out devils, and I do cures
to-day and to-morrow, and the
third day I shall be perfected.
33 Nevertheless, I must walk

to-day and to-morrow, and the
day following: for it cannot
be that a prophet perish out of

34 O Jerusalem, Jerusalem,
which killest the prophets, and
stonest them that are sent unto
thee ; how often would I have
gathered thychildren together as
a hen doth gather her brood un-
der her wings, and ye would not!

35 Behold, your house is left unto you desolate, and verily I say unto you, Ye shall not see me, until the time come when ye shall say, Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord.






90. The transactions when our Lord atc bread with a chief Pharisee on the Sabbath.

AND it came to pass, as he went into the house of one of the chief Pharisees to eat bread on the sabbath-day,that they watched him.

2 And behold, there was a certain man before him which had the dropsy.

3 And Jesus answering, spake unto the lawyers and Pharisees, saying, Is it lawful to heal on the sabbath-day?

4 And they held their peace,
And he took him, and healed
him, and let him

5 And answered them, say-
ing, Which of you shall have an
ass or an ox fallen into a pit,
and will not straightway pull
him out on the sabbath-day?

6 And they could not answer
him again to these things.

7 s And he put forth a parable to those which were bid. den, when he marked how they chose out the chief rooms ; say ing unto them,

8 When thou art bidden of any man to a wedding, sit not down in the highest room,

lest a more honourable man than thou be bidden of him;

9 And he that bade thee and him, come and say to thee, Give this man place; and thou begin with shame to take the lowest room.

10 But when thou art bidden, go and sit down in the
