LUKE XVII. rather say unto him; Make ready wherewith I may sup, and

gird thyself, and serve me, till I have eaten and drunken ; 9 and afterward thou shall eat and drink? Doth he thank that

servant, because he did the things that were commanded ? I 10 trow not. So likewise ye, when ye shall have done all those

things which are commanded you, say ; We are unprofitable servants; we have done that which was our duty to do.

And when he was demanded of the Pharisees, when the kingdom of God should come, he answered them and said ; 21 The kingdom of God cometh not with observation ; neither

shall they say ; Lo here, or, lo there ; for behold, the 22 kingdom of God is within you And he said unto

the disciples; The days will come, when ye shall desire to see one of the days of the Son of man ; and


shall not 23 see it.

And they shall say to you ; See here, or, see there ; 24 go not after them, nor follow them. For as the lightning that

lighteneth out of the one part under heaven, shineth unto the

other part under heaven; so shall the Son of man be in his 25 day. But first must he suffer many things, and be rejected 26 of this generation. And as it was in the days of Noe, so 27 shall it be also in the days of the Son of man.

eat, they drank, they married wives, they were given in mar

riage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark; and the 28 flood came, and destroyed them all. Likewise also as

was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they 29 bought, they sold, they planted, they builded; but the same

day that Lot went out of Sodom, it rained fire and brimstone 30 from heaven, and destroyed them all ; even thus shall it be 31 in the day when the Son of man is revealed.

In that day, he which shall be upon the house-top, and his stuff in the

house, let him not come down to take it away; and he that 32 is in the field, let him likewise not return back. Remember 33 Lot's wife. Whosoever shall seek to save his life, shall lose 34 it; and whosoever shall lose his life, shall preserve it. I tell

you ; In that night there shall be two men in one bed ; 35 one shall be taken, and the other shall be left. Two women

shall be grinding together; the one shall be taken and the 37 other left.

And they answered and said unto him ; Where, Lord? And he said unto them; Wheresoever

the body is, thither will the eagles be gathered togeth18 er.

And he spake a parable unto them to this 2 end, that men ought always to pray, and not to faint, saying ;

There was in a city a judge, which feared not God, neither

They did

LUKE XVIII. 3 regarded man. And there was a widow in that city; and

she came unto him, saying ; Avenge me of mine adversary. 4 And he would not for a while. But afterward he said within 5 himself; Though I fear not God, nor regard man; yet,

because this widow troubleth me, I will avenge her; lest by 6 her continual coming she weary me.

And the Lord said ; 7 Hear what the unjust judge saith. And shall not God avenge

his own elect, which cry day and night unto him, though he 8 bear long with them? I tell you that he will avenge them

speedily. Nevertheless, when the Son of man cometh, sliall he find faith on the earth ?

And he spake this parable unto certain which trusted in themselves that they were righteous, and despised others; 10 Two men went up into the temple to pray; the one a Phar11 isee, and the other a publican. The Pharisee stood by him

self, and prayed thus ; God, I thank thee, that I am not as

other men are, extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even as 12 this publican. I fast twice in the week, I give tithes of all 13 that I possess.

And the publican, standing afar off, would not lift up so much as his eyes unto heaven; but smote upon 14 his breast, saying ; God, be merciful to me a sinner. I tell

you, this man went down to his house justified rather than the other; for every one that exalteth himself shall be abased : and he that humbleth himself shall be exalted.

6* The reader is requested to observe, that the dates in this Calendar are, to a considerable degree, conjectural; but that the order of the events does not depend upon the correctness of them. The dates of the Passover (and consequently of the other Festivals) have been ascertained by calculation; and admitting their accuracy, sufficient accuracy may have been obtained in adapting English dates to the following arrangement. In a few cases, besides the Festivals, this adaptation is founded on express testimony; but more usually it is founded on a calculation of the time necessary for the several events. – Hence the dates can only be an approximation to the truth; but if they prove consistent with internal evidence, and with what external evidence we possess, they will materially assist the mind in forming a distinct view of the order of events, and in retracing the several parts of it."
