Gen|1|1| In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.

Gen|1|2| And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.

Gen|1|3| And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.

Gen|1|4| And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness.

Gen|1|5| And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day.

Gen|1|6| And God said, Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters.

Gen|1|7| And God made the firmament, and divided the waters which were under the firmament from the waters which were above the firmament: and it was so.

Gen|1|8| And God called the firmament Heaven. And the evening and the morning were the second day.

Gen|1|9| And God said, Let the waters under the heaven be gathered together unto one place, and let the dry land appear: and it was so.

Gen|1|10| And God called the dry land Earth; and the gathering together of the waters called he Seas: and God saw that it was good.

Gen|1|11| And God said, Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth: and it was so.

Gen|1|12| And the earth brought forth grass, and herb yielding seed after his kind, and the tree yielding fruit, whose seed was in itself, after his kind: and God saw that it was good.

Gen|1|13| And the evening and the morning were the third day.

Gen|1|14| And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years:

Gen|1|15| And let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth: and it was so.

Gen|1|16| And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars also.

Gen|1|17| And God set them in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth,

Gen|1|18| And to rule over the day and over the night, and to divide the light from the darkness: and God saw that it was good.

Gen|1|19| And the evening and the morning were the fourth day.

Gen|1|20| And God said, Let the waters bring forth abundantly the moving creature that hath life, and fowl that may fly above the earth in the open firmament of heaven.

Gen|1|21| And God created great whales, and every living creature that moveth, which the waters brought forth abundantly, after their kind, and every winged fowl after his kind: and God saw that it was good.

Gen|1|22| And God blessed them, saying, Be fruitful, and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let fowl multiply in the earth.

Gen|1|23| And the evening and the morning were the fifth day.

Gen|1|24| And God said, Let the earth bring forth the living creature after his kind, cattle, and creeping thing, and beast of the earth after his kind: and it was so.

Gen|1|25| And God made the beast of the earth after his kind, and cattle after their kind, and every thing that creepeth upon the earth after his kind: and God saw that it was good.

Gen|1|26| And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.

Gen|1|27| So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.

Gen|1|28| And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.

Gen|1|29| And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat.

Gen|1|30| And to every beast of the earth, and to every fowl of the air, and to every thing that creepeth upon the earth, wherein there is life, I have given every green herb for meat: and it was so.

Gen|1|31| And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day.

Gen|2|1| Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them.

Gen|2|2| And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made; and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made.

Gen|2|3| And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it: because that in it he had rested from all his work which God created and made.

Gen|2|4| These are the generations of the heavens and of the earth when they were created, in the day that the LORD God made the earth and the heavens,

Gen|2|5| And every plant of the field before it was in the earth, and every herb of the field before it grew: for the LORD God had not caused it to rain upon the earth, and there was not a man to till the ground.

Gen|2|6| But there went up a mist from the earth, and watered the whole face of the ground.

Gen|2|7| And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.

Gen|2|8| And the LORD God planted a garden eastward in Eden; and there he put the man whom he had formed.

Gen|2|9| And out of the ground made the LORD God to grow every tree that is pleasant to the sight, and good for food; the tree of life also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of knowledge of good and evil.

Gen|2|10| And a river went out of Eden to water the garden; and from thence it was parted, and became into four heads.

Gen|2|11| The name of the first is Pison: that is it which compasseth the whole land of Havilah, where there is gold;

Gen|2|12| And the gold of that land is good: there is bdellium and the onyx stone.

Gen|2|13| And the name of the second river is Gihon: the same is it that compasseth the whole land of Ethiopia.

Gen|2|14| And the name of the third river is Hiddekel: that is it which goeth toward the east of Assyria. And the fourth river is Euphrates.

Gen|2|15| And the LORD God took the man, and put him into the garden of Eden to dress it and to keep it.

Gen|2|16| And the LORD God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat:

Gen|2|17| But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.

Gen|2|18| And the LORD God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him.

Gen|2|19| And out of the ground the LORD God formed every beast of the field, and every fowl of the air; and brought them unto Adam to see what he would call them: and whatsoever Adam called every living creature, that was the name thereof.

Gen|2|20| And Adam gave names to all cattle, and to the fowl of the air, and to every beast of the field; but for Adam there was not found an help meet for him.

Gen|2|21| And the LORD God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept: and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof;

Gen|2|22| And the rib, which the LORD God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man.

Gen|2|23| And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man.

Gen|2|24| Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.

Gen|2|25| And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed.

Gen|3|1| Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?

Gen|3|2| And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden:

Gen|3|3| But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die.

Gen|3|4| And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die:

Gen|3|5| For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.

Gen|3|6| And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat.

Gen|3|7| And the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together, and made themselves aprons.

Gen|3|8| And they heard the voice of the LORD God walking in the garden in the cool of the day: and Adam and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the LORD God amongst the trees of the garden.

Gen|3|9| And the LORD God called unto Adam, and said unto him, Where art thou?

Gen|3|10| And he said, I heard thy voice in the garden, and I was afraid, because I was naked; and I hid myself.

Gen|3|11| And he said, Who told thee that thou wast naked? Hast thou eaten of the tree, whereof I commanded thee that thou shouldest not eat?

Gen|3|12| And the man said, The woman whom thou gavest to be with me, she gave me of the tree, and I did eat.

Gen|3|13| And the LORD God said unto the woman, What is this that thou hast done? And the woman said, The serpent beguiled me, and I did eat.

Gen|3|14| And the LORD God said unto the serpent, Because thou hast done this, thou art cursed above all cattle, and above every beast of the field; upon thy belly shalt thou go, and dust shalt thou eat all the days of thy life:

Gen|3|15| And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.

Gen|3|16| Unto the woman he said, I will greatly multiply thy sorrow and thy conception; in sorrow thou shalt bring forth children; and thy desire shall be to thy husband, and he shall rule over thee.

Gen|3|17| And unto Adam he said, Because thou hast hearkened unto the voice of thy wife, and hast eaten of the tree, of which I commanded thee, saying, Thou shalt not eat of it: cursed is the ground for thy sake; in sorrow shalt thou eat of it all the days of thy life;

Gen|3|18| Thorns also and thistles shall it bring forth to thee; and thou shalt eat the herb of the field;

Gen|3|19| In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto the ground; for out of it wast thou taken: for dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return.

Gen|3|20| And Adam called his wife's name Eve; because she was the mother of all living.

Gen|3|21| Unto Adam also and to his wife did the LORD God make coats of skins, and clothed them.

Gen|3|22| And the LORD God said, Behold, the man is become as one of us, to know good and evil: and now, lest he put forth his hand, and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live for ever:

Gen|3|23| Therefore the LORD God sent him forth from the garden of Eden, to till the ground from whence he was taken.

Gen|3|24| So he drove out the man; and he placed at the east of the garden of Eden Cherubims, and a flaming sword which turned every way, to keep the way of the tree of life.

Gen|4|1| And Adam knew Eve his wife; and she conceived, and bare Cain, and said, I have gotten a man from the LORD.

Gen|4|2| And she again bare his brother Abel. And Abel was a keeper of sheep, but Cain was a tiller of the ground.

Gen|4|3| And in process of time it came to pass, that Cain brought of the fruit of the ground an offering unto the LORD.

Gen|4|4| And Abel, he also brought of the firstlings of his flock and of the fat thereof. And the LORD had respect unto Abel and to his offering:

Gen|4|5| But unto Cain and to his offering he had not respect. And Cain was very wroth, and his countenance fell.

Gen|4|6| And the LORD said unto Cain, Why art thou wroth? and why is thy countenance fallen?

Gen|4|7| If thou doest well, shalt thou not be accepted? and if thou doest not well, sin lieth at the door. And unto thee shall be his desire, and thou shalt rule over him.

Gen|4|8| And Cain talked with Abel his brother: and it came to pass, when they were in the field, that Cain rose up against Abel his brother, and slew him.

Gen|4|9| And the LORD said unto Cain, Where is Abel thy brother? And he said, I know not: Am I my brother's keeper?

Gen|4|10| And he said, What hast thou done? the voice of thy brother's blood crieth unto me from the ground.

Gen|4|11| And now art thou cursed from the earth, which hath opened her mouth to receive thy brother's blood from thy hand;

Gen|4|12| When thou tillest the ground, it shall not henceforth yield unto thee her strength; a fugitive and a vagabond shalt thou be in the earth.

Gen|4|13| And Cain said unto the LORD, My punishment is greater than I can bear.

Gen|4|14| Behold, thou hast driven me out this day from the face of the earth; and from thy face shall I be hid; and I shall be a fugitive and a vagabond in the earth; and it shall come to pass, that every one that findeth me shall slay me.

Gen|4|15| And the LORD said unto him, Therefore whosoever slayeth Cain, vengeance shall be taken on him sevenfold. And the LORD set a mark upon Cain, lest any finding him should kill him.

Gen|4|16| And Cain went out from the presence of the LORD, and dwelt in the land of Nod, on the east of Eden.

Gen|4|17| And Cain knew his wife; and she conceived, and bare Enoch: and he builded a city, and called the name of the city, after the name of his son, Enoch.

Gen|4|18| And unto Enoch was born Irad: and Irad begat Mehujael: and Mehujael begat Methusael: and Methusael begat Lamech.

Gen|4|19| And Lamech took unto him two wives: the name of the one was Adah, and the name of the other Zillah.

Gen|4|20| And Adah bare Jabal: he was the father of such as dwell in tents, and of such as have cattle.

Gen|4|21| And his brother's name was Jubal: he was the father of all such as handle the harp and organ.

Gen|4|22| And Zillah, she also bare Tubalcain, an instructer of every artificer in brass and iron: and the sister of Tubalcain was Naamah.

Gen|4|23| And Lamech said unto his wives, Adah and Zillah, Hear my voice; ye wives of Lamech, hearken unto my speech: for I have slain a man to my wounding, and a young man to my hurt.

Gen|4|24| If Cain shall be avenged sevenfold, truly Lamech seventy and sevenfold.

Gen|4|25| And Adam knew his wife again; and she bare a son, and called his name Seth: For God, said she, hath appointed me another seed instead of Abel, whom Cain slew.

Gen|4|26| And to Seth, to him also there was born a son; and he called his name Enos: then began men to call upon the name of the LORD.

Gen|5|1| This is the book of the generations of Adam. In the day that God created man, in the likeness of God made he him;

Gen|5|2| Male and female created he them; and blessed them, and called their name Adam, in the day when they were created.

Gen|5|3| And Adam lived an hundred and thirty years, and begat a son in his own likeness, and after his image; and called his name Seth:

Gen|5|4| And the days of Adam after he had begotten Seth were eight hundred years: and he begat sons and daughters:

Gen|5|5| And all the days that Adam lived were nine hundred and thirty years: and he died.

Gen|5|6| And Seth lived an hundred and five years, and begat Enos:

Gen|5|7| And Seth lived after he begat Enos eight hundred and seven years, and begat sons and daughters:

Gen|5|8| And all the days of Seth were nine hundred and twelve years: and he died.

Gen|5|9| And Enos lived ninety years, and begat Cainan:

Gen|5|10| And Enos lived after he begat Cainan eight hundred and fifteen years, and begat sons and daughters:

Gen|5|11| And all the days of Enos were nine hundred and five years: and he died.

Gen|5|12| And Cainan lived seventy years and begat Mahalaleel:

Gen|5|13| And Cainan lived after he begat Mahalaleel eight hundred and forty years, and begat sons and daughters:

Gen|5|14| And all the days of Cainan were nine hundred and ten years: and he died.

Gen|5|15| And Mahalaleel lived sixty and five years, and begat Jared:

Gen|5|16| And Mahalaleel lived after he begat Jared eight hundred and thirty years, and begat sons and daughters:

Gen|5|17| And all the days of Mahalaleel were eight hundred ninety and five years: and he died.

Gen|5|18| And Jared lived an hundred sixty and two years, and he begat Enoch:

Gen|5|19| And Jared lived after he begat Enoch eight hundred years, and begat sons and daughters:

Gen|5|20| And all the days of Jared were nine hundred sixty and two years: and he died.

Gen|5|21| And Enoch lived sixty and five years, and begat Methuselah:

Gen|5|22| And Enoch walked with God after he begat Methuselah three hundred years, and begat sons and daughters:

Gen|5|23| And all the days of Enoch were three hundred sixty and five years:

Gen|5|24| And Enoch walked with God: and he was not; for God took him.

Gen|5|25| And Methuselah lived an hundred eighty and seven years, and begat Lamech.

Gen|5|26| And Methuselah lived after he begat Lamech seven hundred eighty and two years, and begat sons and daughters:

Gen|5|27| And all the days of Methuselah were nine hundred sixty and nine years: and he died.

Gen|5|28| And Lamech lived an hundred eighty and two years, and begat a son:

Gen|5|29| And he called his name Noah, saying, This same shall comfort us concerning our work and toil of our hands, because of the ground which the LORD hath cursed.

Gen|5|30| And Lamech lived after he begat Noah five hundred ninety and five years, and begat sons and daughters:

Gen|5|31| And all the days of Lamech were seven hundred seventy and seven years: and he died.

Gen|5|32| And Noah was five hundred years old: and Noah begat Shem, Ham, and Japheth.

Gen|6|1| And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them,

Gen|6|2| That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose.

Gen|6|3| And the LORD said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years.

Gen|6|4| There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown.

Gen|6|5| And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.

Gen|6|6| And it repented the LORD that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart.

Gen|6|7| And the LORD said, I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth; both man, and beast, and the creeping thing, and the fowls of the air; for it repenteth me that I have made them.

Gen|6|8| But Noah found grace in the eyes of the LORD.

Gen|6|9| These are the generations of Noah: Noah was a just man and perfect in his generations, and Noah walked with God.

Gen|6|10| And Noah begat three sons, Shem, Ham, and Japheth.

Gen|6|11| The earth also was corrupt before God, and the earth was filled with violence.

Gen|6|12| And God looked upon the earth, and, behold, it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted his way upon the earth.

Gen|6|13| And God said unto Noah, The end of all flesh is come before me; for the earth is filled with violence through them; and, behold, I will destroy them with the earth.

Gen|6|14| Make thee an ark of gopher wood; rooms shalt thou make in the ark, and shalt pitch it within and without with pitch.

Gen|6|15| And this is the fashion which thou shalt make it of: The length of the ark shall be three hundred cubits, the breadth of it fifty cubits, and the height of it thirty cubits.

Gen|6|16| A window shalt thou make to the ark, and in a cubit shalt thou finish it above; and the door of the ark shalt thou set in the side thereof; with lower, second, and third stories shalt thou make it.

Gen|6|17| And, behold, I, even I, do bring a flood of waters upon the earth, to destroy all flesh, wherein is the breath of life, from under heaven; and every thing that is in the earth shall die.

Gen|6|18| But with thee will I establish my covenant; and thou shalt come into the ark, thou, and thy sons, and thy wife, and thy sons' wives with thee.

Gen|6|19| And of every living thing of all flesh, two of every sort shalt thou bring into the ark, to keep them alive with thee; they shall be male and female.

Gen|6|20| Of fowls after their kind, and of cattle after their kind, of every creeping thing of the earth after his kind, two of every sort shall come unto thee, to keep them alive.

Gen|6|21| And take thou unto thee of all food that is eaten, and thou shalt gather it to thee; and it shall be for food for thee, and for them.

Gen|6|22| Thus did Noah; according to all that God commanded him, so did he.

Gen|7|1| And the LORD said unto Noah, Come thou and all thy house into the ark; for thee have I seen righteous before me in this generation.

Gen|7|2| Of every clean beast thou shalt take to thee by sevens, the male and his female: and of beasts that are not clean by two, the male and his female.

Gen|7|3| Of fowls also of the air by sevens, the male and the female; to keep seed alive upon the face of all the earth.

Gen|7|4| For yet seven days, and I will cause it to rain upon the earth forty days and forty nights; and every living substance that I have made will I destroy from off the face of the earth.

Gen|7|5| And Noah did according unto all that the LORD commanded him.

Gen|7|6| And Noah was six hundred years old when the flood of waters was upon the earth.

Gen|7|7| And Noah went in, and his sons, and his wife, and his sons' wives with him, into the ark, because of the waters of the flood.

Gen|7|8| Of clean beasts, and of beasts that are not clean, and of fowls, and of every thing that creepeth upon the earth,

Gen|7|9| There went in two and two unto Noah into the ark, the male and the female, as God had commanded Noah.

Gen|7|10| And it came to pass after seven days, that the waters of the flood were upon the earth.

Gen|7|11| In the six hundredth year of Noah's life, in the second month, the seventeenth day of the month, the same day were all the fountains of the great deep broken up, and the windows of heaven were opened.

Gen|7|12| And the rain was upon the earth forty days and forty nights.

Gen|7|13| In the selfsame day entered Noah, and Shem, and Ham, and Japheth, the sons of Noah, and Noah's wife, and the three wives of his sons with them, into the ark;

Gen|7|14| They, and every beast after his kind, and all the cattle after their kind, and every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth after his kind, and every fowl after his kind, every bird of every sort.

Gen|7|15| And they went in unto Noah into the ark, two and two of all flesh, wherein is the breath of life.

Gen|7|16| And they that went in, went in male and female of all flesh, as God had commanded him: and the LORD shut him in.

Gen|7|17| And the flood was forty days upon the earth; and the waters increased, and bare up the ark, and it was lift up above the earth.

Gen|7|18| And the waters prevailed, and were increased greatly upon the earth; and the ark went upon the face of the waters.

Gen|7|19| And the waters prevailed exceedingly upon the earth; and all the high hills, that were under the whole heaven, were covered.

Gen|7|20| Fifteen cubits upward did the waters prevail; and the mountains were covered.

Gen|7|21| And all flesh died that moved upon the earth, both of fowl, and of cattle, and of beast, and of every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth, and every man:

Gen|7|22| All in whose nostrils was the breath of life, of all that was in the dry land, died.

Gen|7|23| And every living substance was destroyed which was upon the face of the ground, both man, and cattle, and the creeping things, and the fowl of the heaven; and they were destroyed from the earth: and Noah only remained alive, and they that were with him in the ark.

Gen|7|24| And the waters prevailed upon the earth an hundred and fifty days.

Gen|8|1| And God remembered Noah, and every living thing, and all the cattle that was with him in the ark: and God made a wind to pass over the earth, and the waters asswaged;

Gen|8|2| The fountains also of the deep and the windows of heaven were stopped, and the rain from heaven was restrained;

Gen|8|3| And the waters returned from off the earth continually: and after the end of the hundred and fifty days the waters were abated.

Gen|8|4| And the ark rested in the seventh month, on the seventeenth day of the month, upon the mountains of Ararat.

Gen|8|5| And the waters decreased continually until the tenth month: in the tenth month, on the first day of the month, were the tops of the mountains seen.

Gen|8|6| And it came to pass at the end of forty days, that Noah opened the window of the ark which he had made:

Gen|8|7| And he sent forth a raven, which went forth to and fro, until the waters were dried up from off the earth.

Gen|8|8| Also he sent forth a dove from him, to see if the waters were abated from off the face of the ground;

Gen|8|9| But the dove found no rest for the sole of her foot, and she returned unto him into the ark, for the waters were on the face of the whole earth: then he put forth his hand, and took her, and pulled her in unto him into the ark.

Gen|8|10| And he stayed yet other seven days; and again he sent forth the dove out of the ark;

Gen|8|11| And the dove came in to him in the evening; and, lo, in her mouth was an olive leaf pluckt off: so Noah knew that the waters were abated from off the earth.

Gen|8|12| And he stayed yet other seven days; and sent forth the dove; which returned not again unto him any more.

Gen|8|13| And it came to pass in the six hundredth and first year, in the first month, the first day of the month, the waters were dried up from off the earth: and Noah removed the covering of the ark, and looked, and, behold, the face of the ground was dry.

Gen|8|14| And in the second month, on the seven and twentieth day of the month, was the earth dried.

Gen|8|15| And God spake unto Noah, saying,

Gen|8|16| Go forth of the ark, thou, and thy wife, and thy sons, and thy sons' wives with thee.

Gen|8|17| Bring forth with thee every living thing that is with thee, of all flesh, both of fowl, and of cattle, and of every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth; that they may breed abundantly in the earth, and be fruitful, and multiply upon the earth.

Gen|8|18| And Noah went forth, and his sons, and his wife, and his sons' wives with him:

Gen|8|19| Every beast, every creeping thing, and every fowl, and whatsoever creepeth upon the earth, after their kinds, went forth out of the ark.

Gen|8|20| And Noah builded an altar unto the LORD; and took of every clean beast, and of every clean fowl, and offered burnt offerings on the altar.

Gen|8|21| And the LORD smelled a sweet savour; and the LORD said in his heart, I will not again curse the ground any more for man's sake; for the imagination of man's heart is evil from his youth; neither will I again smite any more every thing living, as I have done.

Gen|8|22| While the earth remaineth, seedtime and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease.

Gen|9|1| And God blessed Noah and his sons, and said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth.

Gen|9|2| And the fear of you and the dread of you shall be upon every beast of the earth, and upon every fowl of the air, upon all that moveth upon the earth, and upon all the fishes of the sea; into your hand are they delivered.

Gen|9|3| Every moving thing that liveth shall be meat for you; even as the green herb have I given you all things.

Gen|9|4| But flesh with the life thereof, which is the blood thereof, shall ye not eat.

Gen|9|5| And surely your blood of your lives will I require; at the hand of every beast will I require it, and at the hand of man; at the hand of every man's brother will I require the life of man.

Gen|9|6| Whoso sheddeth man's blood, by man shall his blood be shed: for in the image of God made he man.

Gen|9|7| And you, be ye fruitful, and multiply; bring forth abundantly in the earth, and multiply therein.

Gen|9|8| And God spake unto Noah, and to his sons with him, saying,

Gen|9|9| And I, behold, I establish my covenant with you, and with your seed after you;

Gen|9|10| And with every living creature that is with you, of the fowl, of the cattle, and of every beast of the earth with you; from all that go out of the ark, to every beast of the earth.

Gen|9|11| And I will establish my covenant with you, neither shall all flesh be cut off any more by the waters of a flood; neither shall there any more be a flood to destroy the earth.

Gen|9|12| And God said, This is the token of the covenant which I make between me and you and every living creature that is with you, for perpetual generations:

Gen|9|13| I do set my bow in the cloud, and it shall be for a token of a covenant between me and the earth.

Gen|9|14| And it shall come to pass, when I bring a cloud over the earth, that the bow shall be seen in the cloud:

Gen|9|15| And I will remember my covenant, which is between me and you and every living creature of all flesh; and the waters shall no more become a flood to destroy all flesh.

Gen|9|16| And the bow shall be in the cloud; and I will look upon it, that I may remember the everlasting covenant between God and every living creature of all flesh that is upon the earth.

Gen|9|17| And God said unto Noah, This is the token of the covenant, which I have established between me and all flesh that is upon the earth.

Gen|9|18| And the sons of Noah, that went forth of the ark, were Shem, and Ham, and Japheth: and Ham is the father of Canaan.

Gen|9|19| These are the three sons of Noah: and of them was the whole earth overspread.

Gen|9|20| And Noah began to be an husbandman, and he planted a vineyard:

Gen|9|21| And he drank of the wine, and was drunken; and he was uncovered within his tent.

Gen|9|22| And Ham, the father of Canaan, saw the nakedness of his father, and told his two brethren without.

Gen|9|23| And Shem and Japheth took a garment, and laid it upon both their shoulders, and went backward, and covered the nakedness of their father; and their faces were backward, and they saw not their father's nakedness.

Gen|9|24| And Noah awoke from his wine, and knew what his younger son had done unto him.

Gen|9|25| And he said, Cursed be Canaan; a servant of servants shall he be unto his brethren.

Gen|9|26| And he said, Blessed be the LORD God of Shem; and Canaan shall be his servant.

Gen|9|27| God shall enlarge Japheth, and he shall dwell in the tents of Shem; and Canaan shall be his servant.

Gen|9|28| And Noah lived after the flood three hundred and fifty years.

Gen|9|29| And all the days of Noah were nine hundred and fifty years: and he died.

Gen|10|1| Now these are the generations of the sons of Noah, Shem, Ham, and Japheth: and unto them were sons born after the flood.

Gen|10|2| The sons of Japheth; Gomer, and Magog, and Madai, and Javan, and Tubal, and Meshech, and Tiras.

Gen|10|3| And the sons of Gomer; Ashkenaz, and Riphath, and Togarmah.

Gen|10|4| And the sons of Javan; Elishah, and Tarshish, Kittim, and Dodanim.

Gen|10|5| By these were the isles of the Gentiles divided in their lands; every one after his tongue, after their families, in their nations.

Gen|10|6| And the sons of Ham; Cush, and Mizraim, and Phut, and Canaan.

Gen|10|7| And the sons of Cush; Seba, and Havilah, and Sabtah, and Raamah, and Sabtechah: and the sons of Raamah; Sheba, and Dedan.

Gen|10|8| And Cush begat Nimrod: he began to be a mighty one in the earth.

Gen|10|9| He was a mighty hunter before the LORD: wherefore it is said, Even as Nimrod the mighty hunter before the LORD.

Gen|10|10| And the beginning of his kingdom was Babel, and Erech, and Accad, and Calneh, in the land of Shinar.

Gen|10|11| Out of that land went forth Asshur, and builded Nineveh, and the city Rehoboth, and Calah,

Gen|10|12| And Resen between Nineveh and Calah: the same is a great city.

Gen|10|13| And Mizraim begat Ludim, and Anamim, and Lehabim, and Naphtuhim,

Gen|10|14| And Pathrusim, and Casluhim, (out of whom came Philistim,) and Caphtorim.

Gen|10|15| And Canaan begat Sidon his first born, and Heth,

Gen|10|16| And the Jebusite, and the Amorite, and the Girgasite,

Gen|10|17| And the Hivite, and the Arkite, and the Sinite,

Gen|10|18| And the Arvadite, and the Zemarite, and the Hamathite: and afterward were the families of the Canaanites spread abroad.

Gen|10|19| And the border of the Canaanites was from Sidon, as thou comest to Gerar, unto Gaza; as thou goest, unto Sodom, and Gomorrah, and Admah, and Zeboim, even unto Lasha.

Gen|10|20| These are the sons of Ham, after their families, after their tongues, in their countries, and in their nations.

Gen|10|21| Unto Shem also, the father of all the children of Eber, the brother of Japheth the elder, even to him were children born.

Gen|10|22| The children of Shem; Elam, and Asshur, and Arphaxad, and Lud, and Aram.

Gen|10|23| And the children of Aram; Uz, and Hul, and Gether, and Mash.

Gen|10|24| And Arphaxad begat Salah; and Salah begat Eber.

Gen|10|25| And unto Eber were born two sons: the name of one was Peleg; for in his days was the earth divided; and his brother's name was Joktan.

Gen|10|26| And Joktan begat Almodad, and Sheleph, and Hazarmaveth, and Jerah,

Gen|10|27| And Hadoram, and Uzal, and Diklah,

Gen|10|28| And Obal, and Abimael, and Sheba,

Gen|10|29| And Ophir, and Havilah, and Jobab: all these were the sons of Joktan.

Gen|10|30| And their dwelling was from Mesha, as thou goest unto Sephar a mount of the east.

Gen|10|31| These are the sons of Shem, after their families, after their tongues, in their lands, after their nations.

Gen|10|32| These are the families of the sons of Noah, after their generations, in their nations: and by these were the nations divided in the earth after the flood.

Gen|11|1| And the whole earth was of one language, and of one speech.

Gen|11|2| And it came to pass, as they journeyed from the east, that they found a plain in the land of Shinar; and they dwelt there.

Gen|11|3| And they said one to another, Go to, let us make brick, and burn them thoroughly. And they had brick for stone, and slime had they for morter.

Gen|11|4| And they said, Go to, let us build us a city and a tower, whose top may reach unto heaven; and let us make us a name, lest we be scattered abroad upon the face of the whole earth.

Gen|11|5| And the LORD came down to see the city and the tower, which the children of men builded.

Gen|11|6| And the LORD said, Behold, the people is one, and they have all one language; and this they begin to do: and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do.

Gen|11|7| Go to, let us go down, and there confound their language, that they may not understand one another's speech.

Gen|11|8| So the LORD scattered them abroad from thence upon the face of all the earth: and they left off to build the city.

Gen|11|9| Therefore is the name of it called Babel; because the LORD did there confound the language of all the earth: and from thence did the LORD scatter them abroad upon the face of all the earth.

Gen|11|10| These are the generations of Shem: Shem was an hundred years old, and begat Arphaxad two years after the flood:

Gen|11|11| And Shem lived after he begat Arphaxad five hundred years, and begat sons and daughters.

Gen|11|12| And Arphaxad lived five and thirty years, and begat Salah:

Gen|11|13| And Arphaxad lived after he begat Salah four hundred and three years, and begat sons and daughters.

Gen|11|14| And Salah lived thirty years, and begat Eber:

Gen|11|15| And Salah lived after he begat Eber four hundred and three years, and begat sons and daughters.

Gen|11|16| And Eber lived four and thirty years, and begat Peleg:

Gen|11|17| And Eber lived after he begat Peleg four hundred and thirty years, and begat sons and daughters.

Gen|11|18| And Peleg lived thirty years, and begat Reu:

Gen|11|19| And Peleg lived after he begat Reu two hundred and nine years, and begat sons and daughters.

Gen|11|20| And Reu lived two and thirty years, and begat Serug:

Gen|11|21| And Reu lived after he begat Serug two hundred and seven years, and begat sons and daughters.

Gen|11|22| And Serug lived thirty years, and begat Nahor:

Gen|11|23| And Serug lived after he begat Nahor two hundred years, and begat sons and daughters.

Gen|11|24| And Nahor lived nine and twenty years, and begat Terah:

Gen|11|25| And Nahor lived after he begat Terah an hundred and nineteen years, and begat sons and daughters.

Gen|11|26| And Terah lived seventy years, and begat Abram, Nahor, and Haran.

Gen|11|27| Now these are the generations of Terah: Terah begat Abram, Nahor, and Haran; and Haran begat Lot.

Gen|11|28| And Haran died before his father Terah in the land of his nativity, in Ur of the Chaldees.

Gen|11|29| And Abram and Nahor took them wives: the name of Abram's wife was Sarai; and the name of Nahor's wife, Milcah, the daughter of Haran, the father of Milcah, and the father of Iscah.

Gen|11|30| But Sarai was barren; she had no child.

Gen|11|31| And Terah took Abram his son, and Lot the son of Haran his son's son, and Sarai his daughter in law, his son Abram's wife; and they went forth with them from Ur of the Chaldees, to go into the land of Canaan; and they came unto Haran, and dwelt there.

Gen|11|32| And the days of Terah were two hundred and five years: and Terah died in Haran.

Gen|12|1| Now the LORD had said unto Abram, Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father's house, unto a land that I will shew thee:

Gen|12|2| And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing:

Gen|12|3| And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.

Gen|12|4| So Abram departed, as the LORD had spoken unto him; and Lot went with him: and Abram was seventy and five years old when he departed out of Haran.

Gen|12|5| And Abram took Sarai his wife, and Lot his brother's son, and all their substance that they had gathered, and the souls that they had gotten in Haran; and they went forth to go into the land of Canaan; and into the land of Canaan they came.

Gen|12|6| And Abram passed through the land unto the place of Sichem, unto the plain of Moreh. And the Canaanite was then in the land.

Gen|12|7| And the LORD appeared unto Abram, and said, Unto thy seed will I give this land: and there builded he an altar unto the LORD, who appeared unto him.

Gen|12|8| And he removed from thence unto a mountain on the east of Bethel, and pitched his tent, having Bethel on the west, and Hai on the east: and there he builded an altar unto the LORD, and called upon the name of the LORD.

Gen|12|9| And Abram journeyed, going on still toward the south.

Gen|12|10| And there was a famine in the land: and Abram went down into Egypt to sojourn there; for the famine was grievous in the land.

Gen|12|11| And it came to pass, when he was come near to enter into Egypt, that he said unto Sarai his wife, Behold now, I know that thou art a fair woman to look upon:

Gen|12|12| Therefore it shall come to pass, when the Egyptians shall see thee, that they shall say, This is his wife: and they will kill me, but they will save thee alive.

Gen|12|13| Say, I pray thee, thou art my sister: that it may be well with me for thy sake; and my soul shall live because of thee.

Gen|12|14| And it came to pass, that, when Abram was come into Egypt, the Egyptians beheld the woman that she was very fair.

Gen|12|15| The princes also of Pharaoh saw her, and commended her before Pharaoh: and the woman was taken into Pharaoh's house.

Gen|12|16| And he entreated Abram well for her sake: and he had sheep, and oxen, and he asses, and menservants, and maidservants, and she asses, and camels.

Gen|12|17| And the LORD plagued Pharaoh and his house with great plagues because of Sarai Abram's wife.

Gen|12|18| And Pharaoh called Abram and said, What is this that thou hast done unto me? why didst thou not tell me that she was thy wife?

Gen|12|19| Why saidst thou, She is my sister? so I might have taken her to me to wife: now therefore behold thy wife, take her, and go thy way.

Gen|12|20| And Pharaoh commanded his men concerning him: and they sent him away, and his wife, and all that he had.

Gen|13|1| And Abram went up out of Egypt, he, and his wife, and all that he had, and Lot with him, into the south.

Gen|13|2| And Abram was very rich in cattle, in silver, and in gold.

Gen|13|3| And he went on his journeys from the south even to Bethel, unto the place where his tent had been at the beginning, between Bethel and Hai;

Gen|13|4| Unto the place of the altar, which he had make there at the first: and there Abram called on the name of the LORD.

Gen|13|5| And Lot also, which went with Abram, had flocks, and herds, and tents.

Gen|13|6| And the land was not able to bear them, that they might dwell together: for their substance was great, so that they could not dwell together.

Gen|13|7| And there was a strife between the herdmen of Abram's cattle and the herdmen of Lot's cattle: and the Canaanite and the Perizzite dwelled then in the land.

Gen|13|8| And Abram said unto Lot, Let there be no strife, I pray thee, between me and thee, and between my herdmen and thy herdmen; for we be brethren.

Gen|13|9| Is not the whole land before thee? separate thyself, I pray thee, from me: if thou wilt take the left hand, then I will go to the right; or if thou depart to the right hand, then I will go to the left.

Gen|13|10| And Lot lifted up his eyes, and beheld all the plain of Jordan, that it was well watered every where, before the LORD destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah, even as the garden of the LORD, like the land of Egypt, as thou comest unto Zoar.

Gen|13|11| Then Lot chose him all the plain of Jordan; and Lot journeyed east: and they separated themselves the one from the other.

Gen|13|12| Abram dwelled in the land of Canaan, and Lot dwelled in the cities of the plain, and pitched his tent toward Sodom.

Gen|13|13| But the men of Sodom were wicked and sinners before the LORD exceedingly.

Gen|13|14| And the LORD said unto Abram, after that Lot was separated from him, Lift up now thine eyes, and look from the place where thou art northward, and southward, and eastward, and westward:

Gen|13|15| For all the land which thou seest, to thee will I give it, and to thy seed for ever.

Gen|13|16| And I will make thy seed as the dust of the earth: so that if a man can number the dust of the earth, then shall thy seed also be numbered.

Gen|13|17| Arise, walk through the land in the length of it and in the breadth of it; for I will give it unto thee.

Gen|13|18| Then Abram removed his tent, and came and dwelt in the plain of Mamre, which is in Hebron, and built there an altar unto the LORD.

Gen|14|1| And it came to pass in the days of Amraphel king of Shinar, Arioch king of Ellasar, Chedorlaomer king of Elam, and Tidal king of nations;

Gen|14|2| That these made war with Bera king of Sodom, and with Birsha king of Gomorrah, Shinab king of Admah, and Shemeber king of Zeboiim, and the king of Bela, which is Zoar.

Gen|14|3| All these were joined together in the vale of Siddim, which is the salt sea.

Gen|14|4| Twelve years they served Chedorlaomer, and in the thirteenth year they rebelled.

Gen|14|5| And in the fourteenth year came Chedorlaomer, and the kings that were with him, and smote the Rephaims in Ashteroth Karnaim, and the Zuzims in Ham, and the Emins in Shaveh Kiriathaim,

Gen|14|6| And the Horites in their mount Seir, unto Elparan, which is by the wilderness.

Gen|14|7| And they returned, and came to Enmishpat, which is Kadesh, and smote all the country of the Amalekites, and also the Amorites, that dwelt in Hazezontamar.

Gen|14|8| And there went out the king of Sodom, and the king of Gomorrah, and the king of Admah, and the king of Zeboiim, and the king of Bela (the same is Zoar;) and they joined battle with them in the vale of Siddim;

Gen|14|9| With Chedorlaomer the king of Elam, and with Tidal king of nations, and Amraphel king of Shinar, and Arioch king of Ellasar; four kings with five.

Gen|14|10| And the vale of Siddim was full of slimepits; and the kings of Sodom and Gomorrah fled, and fell there; and they that remained fled to the mountain.

Gen|14|11| And they took all the goods of Sodom and Gomorrah, and all their victuals, and went their way.

Gen|14|12| And they took Lot, Abram's brother's son, who dwelt in Sodom, and his goods, and departed.

Gen|14|13| And there came one that had escaped, and told Abram the Hebrew; for he dwelt in the plain of Mamre the Amorite, brother of Eshcol, and brother of Aner: and these were confederate with Abram.

Gen|14|14| And when Abram heard that his brother was taken captive, he armed his trained servants, born in his own house, three hundred and eighteen, and pursued them unto Dan.

Gen|14|15| And he divided himself against them, he and his servants, by night, and smote them, and pursued them unto Hobah, which is on the left hand of Damascus.

Gen|14|16| And he brought back all the goods, and also brought again his brother Lot, and his goods, and the women also, and the people.

Gen|14|17| And the king of Sodom went out to meet him after his return from the slaughter of Chedorlaomer, and of the kings that were with him, at the valley of Shaveh, which is the king's dale.

Gen|14|18| And Melchizedek king of Salem brought forth bread and wine: and he was the priest of the most high God.

Gen|14|19| And he blessed him, and said, Blessed be Abram of the most high God, possessor of heaven and earth:

Gen|14|20| And blessed be the most high God, which hath delivered thine enemies into thy hand. And he gave him tithes of all.

Gen|14|21| And the king of Sodom said unto Abram, Give me the persons, and take the goods to thyself.

Gen|14|22| And Abram said to the king of Sodom, I have lift up mine hand unto the LORD, the most high God, the possessor of heaven and earth,

Gen|14|23| That I will not take from a thread even to a shoelatchet, and that I will not take any thing that is thine, lest thou shouldest say, I have made Abram rich:

Gen|14|24| Save only that which the young men have eaten, and the portion of the men which went with me, Aner, Eshcol, and Mamre; let them take their portion.

Gen|15|1| After these things the word of the LORD came unto Abram in a vision, saying, Fear not, Abram: I am thy shield, and thy exceeding great reward.

Gen|15|2| And Abram said, LORD God, what wilt thou give me, seeing I go childless, and the steward of my house is this Eliezer of Damascus?

Gen|15|3| And Abram said, Behold, to me thou hast given no seed: and, lo, one born in my house is mine heir.

Gen|15|4| And, behold, the word of the LORD came unto him, saying, This shall not be thine heir; but he that shall come forth out of thine own bowels shall be thine heir.

Gen|15|5| And he brought him forth abroad, and said, Look now toward heaven, and tell the stars, if thou be able to number them: and he said unto him, So shall thy seed be.

Gen|15|6| And he believed in the LORD; and he counted it to him for righteousness.

Gen|15|7| And he said unto him, I am the LORD that brought thee out of Ur of the Chaldees, to give thee this land to inherit it.

Gen|15|8| And he said, LORD God, whereby shall I know that I shall inherit it?

Gen|15|9| And he said unto him, Take me an heifer of three years old, and a she goat of three years old, and a ram of three years old, and a turtledove, and a young pigeon.

Gen|15|10| And he took unto him all these, and divided them in the midst, and laid each piece one against another: but the birds divided he not.

Gen|15|11| And when the fowls came down upon the carcases, Abram drove them away.

Gen|15|12| And when the sun was going down, a deep sleep fell upon Abram; and, lo, an horror of great darkness fell upon him.

Gen|15|13| And he said unto Abram, Know of a surety that thy seed shall be a stranger in a land that is not their's, and shall serve them; and they shall afflict them four hundred years;

Gen|15|14| And also that nation, whom they shall serve, will I judge: and afterward shall they come out with great substance.

Gen|15|15| And thou shalt go to thy fathers in peace; thou shalt be buried in a good old age.

Gen|15|16| But in the fourth generation they shall come hither again: for the iniquity of the Amorites is not yet full.

Gen|15|17| And it came to pass, that, when the sun went down, and it was dark, behold a smoking furnace, and a burning lamp that passed between those pieces.

Gen|15|18| In the same day the LORD made a covenant with Abram, saying, Unto thy seed have I given this land, from the river of Egypt unto the great river, the river Euphrates:

Gen|15|19| The Kenites, and the Kenizzites, and the Kadmonites,

Gen|15|20| And the Hittites, and the Perizzites, and the Rephaims,

Gen|15|21| And the Amorites, and the Canaanites, and the Girgashites, and the Jebusites.

Gen|16|1| Now Sarai Abram's wife bare him no children: and she had an handmaid, an Egyptian, whose name was Hagar.

Gen|16|2| And Sarai said unto Abram, Behold now, the LORD hath restrained me from bearing: I pray thee, go in unto my maid; it may be that I may obtain children by her. And Abram hearkened to the voice of Sarai.

Gen|16|3| And Sarai Abram's wife took Hagar her maid the Egyptian, after Abram had dwelt ten years in the land of Canaan, and gave her to her husband Abram to be his wife.

Gen|16|4| And he went in unto Hagar, and she conceived: and when she saw that she had conceived, her mistress was despised in her eyes.

Gen|16|5| And Sarai said unto Abram, My wrong be upon thee: I have given my maid into thy bosom; and when she saw that she had conceived, I was despised in her eyes: the LORD judge between me and thee.

Gen|16|6| But Abram said unto Sarai, Behold, thy maid is in thine hand; do to her as it pleaseth thee. And when Sarai dealt hardly with her, she fled from her face.

Gen|16|7| And the angel of the LORD found her by a fountain of water in the wilderness, by the fountain in the way to Shur.

Gen|16|8| And he said, Hagar, Sarai's maid, whence camest thou? and whither wilt thou go? And she said, I flee from the face of my mistress Sarai.

Gen|16|9| And the angel of the LORD said unto her, Return to thy mistress, and submit thyself under her hands.

Gen|16|10| And the angel of the LORD said unto her, I will multiply thy seed exceedingly, that it shall not be numbered for multitude.

Gen|16|11| And the angel of the LORD said unto her, Behold, thou art with child and shalt bear a son, and shalt call his name Ishmael; because the LORD hath heard thy affliction.

Gen|16|12| And he will be a wild man; his hand will be against every man, and every man's hand against him; and he shall dwell in the presence of all his brethren.

Gen|16|13| And she called the name of the LORD that spake unto her, Thou God seest me: for she said, Have I also here looked after him that seeth me?

Gen|16|14| Wherefore the well was called Beerlahairoi; behold, it is between Kadesh and Bered.

Gen|16|15| And Hagar bare Abram a son: and Abram called his son's name, which Hagar bare, Ishmael.

Gen|16|16| And Abram was fourscore and six years old, when Hagar bare Ishmael to Abram.

Gen|17|1| And when Abram was ninety years old and nine, the LORD appeared to Abram, and said unto him, I am the Almighty God; walk before me, and be thou perfect.

Gen|17|2| And I will make my covenant between me and thee, and will multiply thee exceedingly.

Gen|17|3| And Abram fell on his face: and God talked with him, saying,

Gen|17|4| As for me, behold, my covenant is with thee, and thou shalt be a father of many nations.

Gen|17|5| Neither shall thy name any more be called Abram, but thy name shall be Abraham; for a father of many nations have I made thee.

Gen|17|6| And I will make thee exceeding fruitful, and I will make nations of thee, and kings shall come out of thee.

Gen|17|7| And I will establish my covenant between me and thee and thy seed after thee in their generations for an everlasting covenant, to be a God unto thee, and to thy seed after thee.

Gen|17|8| And I will give unto thee, and to thy seed after thee, the land wherein thou art a stranger, all the land of Canaan, for an everlasting possession; and I will be their God.

Gen|17|9| And God said unto Abraham, Thou shalt keep my covenant therefore, thou, and thy seed after thee in their generations.

Gen|17|10| This is my covenant, which ye shall keep, between me and you and thy seed after thee; Every man child among you shall be circumcised.

Gen|17|11| And ye shall circumcise the flesh of your foreskin; and it shall be a token of the covenant betwixt me and you.

Gen|17|12| And he that is eight days old shall be circumcised among you, every man child in your generations, he that is born in the house, or bought with money of any stranger, which is not of thy seed.

Gen|17|13| He that is born in thy house, and he that is bought with thy money, must needs be circumcised: and my covenant shall be in your flesh for an everlasting covenant.

Gen|17|14| And the uncircumcised man child whose flesh of his foreskin is not circumcised, that soul shall be cut off from his people; he hath broken my covenant.

Gen|17|15| And God said unto Abraham, As for Sarai thy wife, thou shalt not call her name Sarai, but Sarah shall her name be.

Gen|17|16| And I will bless her, and give thee a son also of her: yea, I will bless her, and she shall be a mother of nations; kings of people shall be of her.

Gen|17|17| Then Abraham fell upon his face, and laughed, and said in his heart, Shall a child be born unto him that is an hundred years old? and shall Sarah, that is ninety years old, bear?

Gen|17|18| And Abraham said unto God, O that Ishmael might live before thee!

Gen|17|19| And God said, Sarah thy wife shall bear thee a son indeed; and thou shalt call his name Isaac: and I will establish my covenant with him for an everlasting covenant, and with his seed after him.

Gen|17|20| And as for Ishmael, I have heard thee: Behold, I have blessed him, and will make him fruitful, and will multiply him exceedingly; twelve princes shall he beget, and I will make him a great nation.

Gen|17|21| But my covenant will I establish with Isaac, which Sarah shall bear unto thee at this set time in the next year.

Gen|17|22| And he left off talking with him, and God went up from Abraham.

Gen|17|23| And Abraham took Ishmael his son, and all that were born in his house, and all that were bought with his money, every male among the men of Abraham's house; and circumcised the flesh of their foreskin in the selfsame day, as God had said unto him.

Gen|17|24| And Abraham was ninety years old and nine, when he was circumcised in the flesh of his foreskin.

Gen|17|25| And Ishmael his son was thirteen years old, when he was circumcised in the flesh of his foreskin.

Gen|17|26| In the selfsame day was Abraham circumcised, and Ishmael his son.

Gen|17|27| And all the men of his house, born in the house, and bought with money of the stranger, were circumcised with him.

Gen|18|1| And the LORD appeared unto him in the plains of Mamre: and he sat in the tent door in the heat of the day;

Gen|18|2| And he lift up his eyes and looked, and, lo, three men stood by him: and when he saw them, he ran to meet them from the tent door, and bowed himself toward the ground,

Gen|18|3| And said, My LORD, if now I have found favour in thy sight, pass not away, I pray thee, from thy servant:

Gen|18|4| Let a little water, I pray you, be fetched, and wash your feet, and rest yourselves under the tree:

Gen|18|5| And I will fetch a morsel of bread, and comfort ye your hearts; after that ye shall pass on: for therefore are ye come to your servant. And they said, So do, as thou hast said.

Gen|18|6| And Abraham hastened into the tent unto Sarah, and said, Make ready quickly three measures of fine meal, knead it, and make cakes upon the hearth.

Gen|18|7| And Abraham ran unto the herd, and fetcht a calf tender and good, and gave it unto a young man; and he hasted to dress it.

Gen|18|8| And he took butter, and milk, and the calf which he had dressed, and set it before them; and he stood by them under the tree, and they did eat.

Gen|18|9| And they said unto him, Where is Sarah thy wife? And he said, Behold, in the tent.

Gen|18|10| And he said, I will certainly return unto thee according to the time of life; and, lo, Sarah thy wife shall have a son. And Sarah heard it in the tent door, which was behind him.

Gen|18|11| Now Abraham and Sarah were old and well stricken in age; and it ceased to be with Sarah after the manner of women.

Gen|18|12| Therefore Sarah laughed within herself, saying, After I am waxed old shall I have pleasure, my lord being old also?

Gen|18|13| And the LORD said unto Abraham, Wherefore did Sarah laugh, saying, Shall I of a surety bear a child, which am old?

Gen|18|14| Is any thing too hard for the LORD? At the time appointed I will return unto thee, according to the time of life, and Sarah shall have a son.

Gen|18|15| Then Sarah denied, saying, I laughed not; for she was afraid. And he said, Nay; but thou didst laugh.

Gen|18|16| And the men rose up from thence, and looked toward Sodom: and Abraham went with them to bring them on the way.

Gen|18|17| And the LORD said, Shall I hide from Abraham that thing which I do;

Gen|18|18| Seeing that Abraham shall surely become a great and mighty nation, and all the nations of the earth shall be blessed in him?

Gen|18|19| For I know him, that he will command his children and his household after him, and they shall keep the way of the LORD, to do justice and judgment; that the LORD may bring upon Abraham that which he hath spoken of him.

Gen|18|20| And the LORD said, Because the cry of Sodom and Gomorrah is great, and because their sin is very grievous;

Gen|18|21| I will go down now, and see whether they have done altogether according to the cry of it, which is come unto me; and if not, I will know.

Gen|18|22| And the men turned their faces from thence, and went toward Sodom: but Abraham stood yet before the LORD.

Gen|18|23| And Abraham drew near, and said, Wilt thou also destroy the righteous with the wicked?

Gen|18|24| Peradventure there be fifty righteous within the city: wilt thou also destroy and not spare the place for the fifty righteous that are therein?

Gen|18|25| That be far from thee to do after this manner, to slay the righteous with the wicked: and that the righteous should be as the wicked, that be far from thee: Shall not the Judge of all the earth do right?

Gen|18|26| And the LORD said, If I find in Sodom fifty righteous within the city, then I will spare all the place for their sakes.

Gen|18|27| And Abraham answered and said, Behold now, I have taken upon me to speak unto the LORD, which am but dust and ashes:

Gen|18|28| Peradventure there shall lack five of the fifty righteous: wilt thou destroy all the city for lack of five? And he said, If I find there forty and five, I will not destroy it.

Gen|18|29| And he spake unto him yet again, and said, Peradventure there shall be forty found there. And he said, I will not do it for forty's sake.

Gen|18|30| And he said unto him, Oh let not the LORD be angry, and I will speak: Peradventure there shall thirty be found there. And he said, I will not do it, if I find thirty there.

Gen|18|31| And he said, Behold now, I have taken upon me to speak unto the LORD: Peradventure there shall be twenty found there. And he said, I will not destroy it for twenty's sake.

Gen|18|32| And he said, Oh let not the LORD be angry, and I will speak yet but this once: Peradventure ten shall be found there. And he said, I will not destroy it for ten's sake.

Gen|18|33| And the LORD went his way, as soon as he had left communing with Abraham: and Abraham returned unto his place.

Gen|19|1| And there came two angels to Sodom at even; and Lot sat in the gate of Sodom: and Lot seeing them rose up to meet them; and he bowed himself with his face toward the ground;

Gen|19|2| And he said, Behold now, my lords, turn in, I pray you, into your servant's house, and tarry all night, and wash your feet, and ye shall rise up early, and go on your ways. And they said, Nay; but we will abide in the street all night.

Gen|19|3| And he pressed upon them greatly; and they turned in unto him, and entered into his house; and he made them a feast, and did bake unleavened bread, and they did eat.

Gen|19|4| But before they lay down, the men of the city, even the men of Sodom, compassed the house round, both old and young, all the people from every quarter:

Gen|19|5| And they called unto Lot, and said unto him, Where are the men which came in to thee this night? bring them out unto us, that we may know them.

Gen|19|6| And Lot went out at the door unto them, and shut the door after him,

Gen|19|7| And said, I pray you, brethren, do not so wickedly.

Gen|19|8| Behold now, I have two daughters which have not known man; let me, I pray you, bring them out unto you, and do ye to them as is good in your eyes: only unto these men do nothing; for therefore came they under the shadow of my roof.

Gen|19|9| And they said, Stand back. And they said again, This one fellow came in to sojourn, and he will needs be a judge: now will we deal worse with thee, than with them. And they pressed sore upon the man, even Lot, and came near to break the door.

Gen|19|10| But the men put forth their hand, and pulled Lot into the house to them, and shut to the door.

Gen|19|11| And they smote the men that were at the door of the house with blindness, both small and great: so that they wearied themselves to find the door.

Gen|19|12| And the men said unto Lot, Hast thou here any besides? son in law, and thy sons, and thy daughters, and whatsoever thou hast in the city, bring them out of this place:

Gen|19|13| For we will destroy this place, because the cry of them is waxen great before the face of the LORD; and the LORD hath sent us to destroy it.

Gen|19|14| And Lot went out, and spake unto his sons in law, which married his daughters, and said, Up, get you out of this place; for the LORD will destroy this city. But he seemed as one that mocked unto his sons in law.

Gen|19|15| And when the morning arose, then the angels hastened Lot, saying, Arise, take thy wife, and thy two daughters, which are here; lest thou be consumed in the iniquity of the city.

Gen|19|16| And while he lingered, the men laid hold upon his hand, and upon the hand of his wife, and upon the hand of his two daughters; the LORD being merciful unto him: and they brought him forth, and set him without the city.

Gen|19|17| And it came to pass, when they had brought them forth abroad, that he said, Escape for thy life; look not behind thee, neither stay thou in all the plain; escape to the mountain, lest thou be consumed.

Gen|19|18| And Lot said unto them, Oh, not so, my LORD:

Gen|19|19| Behold now, thy servant hath found grace in thy sight, and thou hast magnified thy mercy, which thou hast shewed unto me in saving my life; and I cannot escape to the mountain, lest some evil take me, and I die:

Gen|19|20| Behold now, this city is near to flee unto, and it is a little one: Oh, let me escape thither, (is it not a little one?) and my soul shall live.

Gen|19|21| And he said unto him, See, I have accepted thee concerning this thing also, that I will not overthrow this city, for the which thou hast spoken.

Gen|19|22| Haste thee, escape thither; for I cannot do anything till thou be come thither. Therefore the name of the city was called Zoar.

Gen|19|23| The sun was risen upon the earth when Lot entered into Zoar.

Gen|19|24| Then the LORD rained upon Sodom and upon Gomorrah brimstone and fire from the LORD out of heaven;

Gen|19|25| And he overthrew those cities, and all the plain, and all the inhabitants of the cities, and that which grew upon the ground.

Gen|19|26| But his wife looked back from behind him, and she became a pillar of salt.

Gen|19|27| And Abraham gat up early in the morning to the place where he stood before the LORD:

Gen|19|28| And he looked toward Sodom and Gomorrah, and toward all the land of the plain, and beheld, and, lo, the smoke of the country went up as the smoke of a furnace.

Gen|19|29| And it came to pass, when God destroyed the cities of the plain, that God remembered Abraham, and sent Lot out of the midst of the overthrow, when he overthrew the cities in the which Lot dwelt.

Gen|19|30| And Lot went up out of Zoar, and dwelt in the mountain, and his two daughters with him; for he feared to dwell in Zoar: and he dwelt in a cave, he and his two daughters.

Gen|19|31| And the firstborn said unto the younger, Our father is old, and there is not a man in the earth to come in unto us after the manner of all the earth:

Gen|19|32| Come, let us make our father drink wine, and we will lie with him, that we may preserve seed of our father.

Gen|19|33| And they made their father drink wine that night: and the firstborn went in, and lay with her father; and he perceived not when she lay down, nor when she arose.

Gen|19|34| And it came to pass on the morrow, that the firstborn said unto the younger, Behold, I lay yesternight with my father: let us make him drink wine this night also; and go thou in, and lie with him, that we may preserve seed of our father.

Gen|19|35| And they made their father drink wine that night also: and the younger arose, and lay with him; and he perceived not when she lay down, nor when she arose.

Gen|19|36| Thus were both the daughters of Lot with child by their father.

Gen|19|37| And the first born bare a son, and called his name Moab: the same is the father of the Moabites unto this day.

Gen|19|38| And the younger, she also bare a son, and called his name Benammi: the same is the father of the children of Ammon unto this day.

Gen|20|1| And Abraham journeyed from thence toward the south country, and dwelled between Kadesh and Shur, and sojourned in Gerar.

Gen|20|2| And Abraham said of Sarah his wife, She is my sister: and Abimelech king of Gerar sent, and took Sarah.

Gen|20|3| But God came to Abimelech in a dream by night, and said to him, Behold, thou art but a dead man, for the woman which thou hast taken; for she is a man's wife.

Gen|20|4| But Abimelech had not come near her: and he said, LORD, wilt thou slay also a righteous nation?

Gen|20|5| Said he not unto me, She is my sister? and she, even she herself said, He is my brother: in the integrity of my heart and innocency of my hands have I done this.

Gen|20|6| And God said unto him in a dream, Yea, I know that thou didst this in the integrity of thy heart; for I also withheld thee from sinning against me: therefore suffered I thee not to touch her.

Gen|20|7| Now therefore restore the man his wife; for he is a prophet, and he shall pray for thee, and thou shalt live: and if thou restore her not, know thou that thou shalt surely die, thou, and all that are thine.

Gen|20|8| Therefore Abimelech rose early in the morning, and called all his servants, and told all these things in their ears: and the men were sore afraid.

Gen|20|9| Then Abimelech called Abraham, and said unto him, What hast thou done unto us? and what have I offended thee, that thou hast brought on me and on my kingdom a great sin? thou hast done deeds unto me that ought not to be done.

Gen|20|10| And Abimelech said unto Abraham, What sawest thou, that thou hast done this thing?

Gen|20|11| And Abraham said, Because I thought, Surely the fear of God is not in this place; and they will slay me for my wife's sake.

Gen|20|12| And yet indeed she is my sister; she is the daughter of my father, but not the daughter of my mother; and she became my wife.

Gen|20|13| And it came to pass, when God caused me to wander from my father's house, that I said unto her, This is thy kindness which thou shalt shew unto me; at every place whither we shall come, say of me, He is my brother.

Gen|20|14| And Abimelech took sheep, and oxen, and menservants, and womenservants, and gave them unto Abraham, and restored him Sarah his wife.

Gen|20|15| And Abimelech said, Behold, my land is before thee: dwell where it pleaseth thee.

Gen|20|16| And unto Sarah he said, Behold, I have given thy brother a thousand pieces of silver: behold, he is to thee a covering of the eyes, unto all that are with thee, and with all other: thus she was reproved.

Gen|20|17| So Abraham prayed unto God: and God healed Abimelech, and his wife, and his maidservants; and they bare children.

Gen|20|18| For the LORD had fast closed up all the wombs of the house of Abimelech, because of Sarah Abraham's wife.

Gen|21|1| And the LORD visited Sarah as he had said, and the LORD did unto Sarah as he had spoken.

Gen|21|2| For Sarah conceived, and bare Abraham a son in his old age, at the set time of which God had spoken to him.

Gen|21|3| And Abraham called the name of his son that was born unto him, whom Sarah bare to him, Isaac.

Gen|21|4| And Abraham circumcised his son Isaac being eight days old, as God had commanded him.

Gen|21|5| And Abraham was an hundred years old, when his son Isaac was born unto him.

Gen|21|6| And Sarah said, God hath made me to laugh, so that all that hear will laugh with me.

Gen|21|7| And she said, Who would have said unto Abraham, that Sarah should have given children suck? for I have born him a son in his old age.

Gen|21|8| And the child grew, and was weaned: and Abraham made a great feast the same day that Isaac was weaned.

Gen|21|9| And Sarah saw the son of Hagar the Egyptian, which she had born unto Abraham, mocking.

Gen|21|10| Wherefore she said unto Abraham, Cast out this bondwoman and her son: for the son of this bondwoman shall not be heir with my son, even with Isaac.

Gen|21|11| And the thing was very grievous in Abraham's sight because of his son.

Gen|21|12| And God said unto Abraham, Let it not be grievous in thy sight because of the lad, and because of thy bondwoman; in all that Sarah hath said unto thee, hearken unto her voice; for in Isaac shall thy seed be called.

Gen|21|13| And also of the son of the bondwoman will I make a nation, because he is thy seed.

Gen|21|14| And Abraham rose up early in the morning, and took bread, and a bottle of water, and gave it unto Hagar, putting it on her shoulder, and the child, and sent her away: and she departed, and wandered in the wilderness of Beersheba.

Gen|21|15| And the water was spent in the bottle, and she cast the child under one of the shrubs.

Gen|21|16| And she went, and sat her down over against him a good way off, as it were a bow shot: for she said, Let me not see the death of the child. And she sat over against him, and lift up her voice, and wept.

Gen|21|17| And God heard the voice of the lad; and the angel of God called to Hagar out of heaven, and said unto her, What aileth thee, Hagar? fear not; for God hath heard the voice of the lad where he is.

Gen|21|18| Arise, lift up the lad, and hold him in thine hand; for I will make him a great nation.

Gen|21|19| And God opened her eyes, and she saw a well of water; and she went, and filled the bottle with water, and gave the lad drink.

Gen|21|20| And God was with the lad; and he grew, and dwelt in the wilderness, and became an archer.

Gen|21|21| And he dwelt in the wilderness of Paran: and his mother took him a wife out of the land of Egypt.

Gen|21|22| And it came to pass at that time, that Abimelech and Phichol the chief captain of his host spake unto Abraham, saying, God is with thee in all that thou doest:

Gen|21|23| Now therefore swear unto me here by God that thou wilt not deal falsely with me, nor with my son, nor with my son's son: but according to the kindness that I have done unto thee, thou shalt do unto me, and to the land wherein thou hast sojourned.

Gen|21|24| And Abraham said, I will swear.

Gen|21|25| And Abraham reproved Abimelech because of a well of water, which Abimelech's servants had violently taken away.

Gen|21|26| And Abimelech said, I wot not who hath done this thing; neither didst thou tell me, neither yet heard I of it, but to day.

Gen|21|27| And Abraham took sheep and oxen, and gave them unto Abimelech; and both of them made a covenant.

Gen|21|28| And Abraham set seven ewe lambs of the flock by themselves.

Gen|21|29| And Abimelech said unto Abraham, What mean these seven ewe lambs which thou hast set by themselves?

Gen|21|30| And he said, For these seven ewe lambs shalt thou take of my hand, that they may be a witness unto me, that I have digged this well.

Gen|21|31| Wherefore he called that place Beersheba; because there they sware both of them.

Gen|21|32| Thus they made a covenant at Beersheba: then Abimelech rose up, and Phichol the chief captain of his host, and they returned into the land of the Philistines.

Gen|21|33| And Abraham planted a grove in Beersheba, and called there on the name of the LORD, the everlasting God.

Gen|21|34| And Abraham sojourned in the Philistines' land many days.

Gen|22|1| And it came to pass after these things, that God did tempt Abraham, and said unto him, Abraham: and he said, Behold, here I am.

Gen|22|2| And he said, Take now thy son, thine only son Isaac, whom thou lovest, and get thee into the land of Moriah; and offer him there for a burnt offering upon one of the mountains which I will tell thee of.

Gen|22|3| And Abraham rose up early in the morning, and saddled his ass, and took two of his young men with him, and Isaac his son, and clave the wood for the burnt offering, and rose up, and went unto the place of which God had told him.

Gen|22|4| Then on the third day Abraham lifted up his eyes, and saw the place afar off.

Gen|22|5| And Abraham said unto his young men, Abide ye here with the ass; and I and the lad will go yonder and worship, and come again to you.

Gen|22|6| And Abraham took the wood of the burnt offering, and laid it upon Isaac his son; and he took the fire in his hand, and a knife; and they went both of them together.

Gen|22|7| And Isaac spake unto Abraham his father, and said, My father: and he said, Here am I, my son. And he said, Behold the fire and the wood: but where is the lamb for a burnt offering?

Gen|22|8| And Abraham said, My son, God will provide himself a lamb for a burnt offering: so they went both of them together.

Gen|22|9| And they came to the place which God had told him of; and Abraham built an altar there, and laid the wood in order, and bound Isaac his son, and laid him on the altar upon the wood.

Gen|22|10| And Abraham stretched forth his hand, and took the knife to slay his son.

Gen|22|11| And the angel of the LORD called unto him out of heaven, and said, Abraham, Abraham: and he said, Here am I.

Gen|22|12| And he said, Lay not thine hand upon the lad, neither do thou any thing unto him: for now I know that thou fearest God, seeing thou hast not withheld thy son, thine only son from me.

Gen|22|13| And Abraham lifted up his eyes, and looked, and behold behind him a ram caught in a thicket by his horns: and Abraham went and took the ram, and offered him up for a burnt offering in the stead of his son.

Gen|22|14| And Abraham called the name of that place Jehovahjireh: as it is said to this day, In the mount of the LORD it shall be seen.

Gen|22|15| And the angel of the LORD called unto Abraham out of heaven the second time,

Gen|22|16| And said, By myself have I sworn, saith the LORD, for because thou hast done this thing, and hast not withheld thy son, thine only son:

Gen|22|17| That in blessing I will bless thee, and in multiplying I will multiply thy seed as the stars of the heaven, and as the sand which is upon the sea shore; and thy seed shall possess the gate of his enemies;

Gen|22|18| And in thy seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed; because thou hast obeyed my voice.

Gen|22|19| So Abraham returned unto his young men, and they rose up and went together to Beersheba; and Abraham dwelt at Beersheba.

Gen|22|20| And it came to pass after these things, that it was told Abraham, saying, Behold, Milcah, she hath also born children unto thy brother Nahor;

Gen|22|21| Huz his firstborn, and Buz his brother, and Kemuel the father of Aram,

Gen|22|22| And Chesed, and Hazo, and Pildash, and Jidlaph, and Bethuel.

Gen|22|23| And Bethuel begat Rebekah: these eight Milcah did bear to Nahor, Abraham's brother.

Gen|22|24| And his concubine, whose name was Reumah, she bare also Tebah, and Gaham, and Thahash, and Maachah.

Gen|23|1| And Sarah was an hundred and seven and twenty years old: these were the years of the life of Sarah.

Gen|23|2| And Sarah died in Kirjatharba; the same is Hebron in the land of Canaan: and Abraham came to mourn for Sarah, and to weep for her.

Gen|23|3| And Abraham stood up from before his dead, and spake unto the sons of Heth, saying,

Gen|23|4| I am a stranger and a sojourner with you: give me a possession of a buryingplace with you, that I may bury my dead out of my sight.

Gen|23|5| And the children of Heth answered Abraham, saying unto him,

Gen|23|6| Hear us, my lord: thou art a mighty prince among us: in the choice of our sepulchres bury thy dead; none of us shall withhold from thee his sepulchre, but that thou mayest bury thy dead.

Gen|23|7| And Abraham stood up, and bowed himself to the people of the land, even to the children of Heth.

Gen|23|8| And he communed with them, saying, If it be your mind that I should bury my dead out of my sight; hear me, and intreat for me to Ephron the son of Zohar,

Gen|23|9| That he may give me the cave of Machpelah, which he hath, which is in the end of his field; for as much money as it is worth he shall give it me for a possession of a buryingplace amongst you.

Gen|23|10| And Ephron dwelt among the children of Heth: and Ephron the Hittite answered Abraham in the audience of the children of Heth, even of all that went in at the gate of his city, saying,

Gen|23|11| Nay, my lord, hear me: the field give I thee, and the cave that is therein, I give it thee; in the presence of the sons of my people give I it thee: bury thy dead.

Gen|23|12| And Abraham bowed down himself before the people of the land.

Gen|23|13| And he spake unto Ephron in the audience of the people of the land, saying, But if thou wilt give it, I pray thee, hear me: I will give thee money for the field; take it of me, and I will bury my dead there.

Gen|23|14| And Ephron answered Abraham, saying unto him,

Gen|23|15| My lord, hearken unto me: the land is worth four hundred shekels of silver; what is that betwixt me and thee? bury therefore thy dead.

Gen|23|16| And Abraham hearkened unto Ephron; and Abraham weighed to Ephron the silver, which he had named in the audience of the sons of Heth, four hundred shekels of silver, current money with the merchant.

Gen|23|17| And the field of Ephron which was in Machpelah, which was before Mamre, the field, and the cave which was therein, and all the trees that were in the field, that were in all the borders round about, were made sure

Gen|23|18| Unto Abraham for a possession in the presence of the children of Heth, before all that went in at the gate of his city.

Gen|23|19| And after this, Abraham buried Sarah his wife in the cave of the field of Machpelah before Mamre: the same is Hebron in the land of Canaan.

Gen|23|20| And the field, and the cave that is therein, were made sure unto Abraham for a possession of a buryingplace by the sons of Heth.

Gen|24|1| And Abraham was old, and well stricken in age: and the LORD had blessed Abraham in all things.

Gen|24|2| And Abraham said unto his eldest servant of his house, that ruled over all that he had, Put, I pray thee, thy hand under my thigh:

Gen|24|3| And I will make thee swear by the LORD, the God of heaven, and the God of the earth, that thou shalt not take a wife unto my son of the daughters of the Canaanites, among whom I dwell:

Gen|24|4| But thou shalt go unto my country, and to my kindred, and take a wife unto my son Isaac.

Gen|24|5| And the servant said unto him, Peradventure the woman will not be willing to follow me unto this land: must I needs bring thy son again unto the land from whence thou camest?

Gen|24|6| And Abraham said unto him, Beware thou that thou bring not my son thither again.

Gen|24|7| The LORD God of heaven, which took me from my father's house, and from the land of my kindred, and which spake unto me, and that sware unto me, saying, Unto thy seed will I give this land; he shall send his angel before thee, and thou shalt take a wife unto my son from thence.

Gen|24|8| And if the woman will not be willing to follow thee, then thou shalt be clear from this my oath: only bring not my son thither again.

Gen|24|9| And the servant put his hand under the thigh of Abraham his master, and sware to him concerning that matter.

Gen|24|10| And the servant took ten camels of the camels of his master, and departed; for all the goods of his master were in his hand: and he arose, and went to Mesopotamia, unto the city of Nahor.

Gen|24|11| And he made his camels to kneel down without the city by a well of water at the time of the evening, even the time that women go out to draw water.

Gen|24|12| And he said O LORD God of my master Abraham, I pray thee, send me good speed this day, and shew kindness unto my master Abraham.

Gen|24|13| Behold, I stand here by the well of water; and the daughters of the men of the city come out to draw water:

Gen|24|14| And let it come to pass, that the damsel to whom I shall say, Let down thy pitcher, I pray thee, that I may drink; and she shall say, Drink, and I will give thy camels drink also: let the same be she that thou hast appointed for thy servant Isaac; and thereby shall I know that thou hast shewed kindness unto my master.

Gen|24|15| And it came to pass, before he had done speaking, that, behold, Rebekah came out, who was born to Bethuel, son of Milcah, the wife of Nahor, Abraham's brother, with her pitcher upon her shoulder.

Gen|24|16| And the damsel was very fair to look upon, a virgin, neither had any man known her: and she went down to the well, and filled her pitcher, and came up.

Gen|24|17| And the servant ran to meet her, and said, Let me, I pray thee, drink a little water of thy pitcher.

Gen|24|18| And she said, Drink, my lord: and she hasted, and let down her pitcher upon her hand, and gave him drink.

Gen|24|19| And when she had done giving him drink, she said, I will draw water for thy camels also, until they have done drinking.

Gen|24|20| And she hasted, and emptied her pitcher into the trough, and ran again unto the well to draw water, and drew for all his camels.

Gen|24|21| And the man wondering at her held his peace, to wit whether the LORD had made his journey prosperous or not.

Gen|24|22| And it came to pass, as the camels had done drinking, that the man took a golden earring of half a shekel weight, and two bracelets for her hands of ten shekels weight of gold;

Gen|24|23| And said, Whose daughter art thou? tell me, I pray thee: is there room in thy father's house for us to lodge in?

Gen|24|24| And she said unto him, I am the daughter of Bethuel the son of Milcah, which she bare unto Nahor.

Gen|24|25| She said moreover unto him, We have both straw and provender enough, and room to lodge in.

Gen|24|26| And the man bowed down his head, and worshipped the LORD.

Gen|24|27| And he said, Blessed be the LORD God of my master Abraham, who hath not left destitute my master of his mercy and his truth: I being in the way, the LORD led me to the house of my master's brethren.

Gen|24|28| And the damsel ran, and told them of her mother's house these things.

Gen|24|29| And Rebekah had a brother, and his name was Laban: and Laban ran out unto the man, unto the well.

Gen|24|30| And it came to pass, when he saw the earring and bracelets upon his sister's hands, and when he heard the words of Rebekah his sister, saying, Thus spake the man unto me; that he came unto the man; and, behold, he stood by the camels at the well.

Gen|24|31| And he said, Come in, thou blessed of the LORD; wherefore standest thou without? for I have prepared the house, and room for the camels.

Gen|24|32| And the man came into the house: and he ungirded his camels, and gave straw and provender for the camels, and water to wash his feet, and the men's feet that were with him.

Gen|24|33| And there was set meat before him to eat: but he said, I will not eat, until I have told mine errand. And he said, Speak on.

Gen|24|34| And he said, I am Abraham's servant.

Gen|24|35| And the LORD hath blessed my master greatly; and he is become great: and he hath given him flocks, and herds, and silver, and gold, and menservants, and maidservants, and camels, and asses.

Gen|24|36| And Sarah my master's wife bare a son to my master when she was old: and unto him hath he given all that he hath.

Gen|24|37| And my master made me swear, saying, Thou shalt not take a wife to my son of the daughters of the Canaanites, in whose land I dwell:

Gen|24|38| But thou shalt go unto my father's house, and to my kindred, and take a wife unto my son.

Gen|24|39| And I said unto my master, Peradventure the woman will not follow me.

Gen|24|40| And he said unto me, The LORD, before whom I walk, will send his angel with thee, and prosper thy way; and thou shalt take a wife for my son of my kindred, and of my father's house:

Gen|24|41| Then shalt thou be clear from this my oath, when thou comest to my kindred; and if they give not thee one, thou shalt be clear from my oath.

Gen|24|42| And I came this day unto the well, and said, O LORD God of my master Abraham, if now thou do prosper my way which I go:

Gen|24|43| Behold, I stand by the well of water; and it shall come to pass, that when the virgin cometh forth to draw water, and I say to her, Give me, I pray thee, a little water of thy pitcher to drink;

Gen|24|44| And she say to me, Both drink thou, and I will also draw for thy camels: let the same be the woman whom the LORD hath appointed out for my master's son.

Gen|24|45| And before I had done speaking in mine heart, behold, Rebekah came forth with her pitcher on her shoulder; and she went down unto the well, and drew water: and I said unto her, Let me drink, I pray thee.

Gen|24|46| And she made haste, and let down her pitcher from her shoulder, and said, Drink, and I will give thy camels drink also: so I drank, and she made the camels drink also.

Gen|24|47| And I asked her, and said, Whose daughter art thou? And she said, the daughter of Bethuel, Nahor's son, whom Milcah bare unto him: and I put the earring upon her face, and the bracelets upon her hands.

Gen|24|48| And I bowed down my head, and worshipped the LORD, and blessed the LORD God of my master Abraham, which had led me in the right way to take my master's brother's daughter unto his son.

Gen|24|49| And now if ye will deal kindly and truly with my master, tell me: and if not, tell me; that I may turn to the right hand, or to the left.

Gen|24|50| Then Laban and Bethuel answered and said, The thing proceedeth from the LORD: we cannot speak unto thee bad or good.

Gen|24|51| Behold, Rebekah is before thee, take her, and go, and let her be thy master's son's wife, as the LORD hath spoken.

Gen|24|52| And it came to pass, that, when Abraham's servant heard their words, he worshipped the LORD, bowing himself to the earth.

Gen|24|53| And the servant brought forth jewels of silver, and jewels of gold, and raiment, and gave them to Rebekah: he gave also to her brother and to her mother precious things.

Gen|24|54| And they did eat and drink, he and the men that were with him, and tarried all night; and they rose up in the morning, and he said, Send me away unto my master.

Gen|24|55| And her brother and her mother said, Let the damsel abide with us a few days, at the least ten; after that she shall go.

Gen|24|56| And he said unto them, Hinder me not, seeing the LORD hath prospered my way; send me away that I may go to my master.

Gen|24|57| And they said, We will call the damsel, and enquire at her mouth.

Gen|24|58| And they called Rebekah, and said unto her, Wilt thou go with this man? And she said, I will go.

Gen|24|59| And they sent away Rebekah their sister, and her nurse, and Abraham's servant, and his men.

Gen|24|60| And they blessed Rebekah, and said unto her, Thou art our sister, be thou the mother of thousands of millions, and let thy seed possess the gate of those which hate them.

Gen|24|61| And Rebekah arose, and her damsels, and they rode upon the camels, and followed the man: and the servant took Rebekah, and went his way.

Gen|24|62| And Isaac came from the way of the well Lahairoi; for he dwelt in the south country.

Gen|24|63| And Isaac went out to meditate in the field at the eventide: and he lifted up his eyes, and saw, and, behold, the camels were coming.

Gen|24|64| And Rebekah lifted up her eyes, and when she saw Isaac, she lighted off the camel.

Gen|24|65| For she had said unto the servant, What man is this that walketh in the field to meet us? And the servant had said, It is my master: therefore she took a vail, and covered herself.

Gen|24|66| And the servant told Isaac all things that he had done.

Gen|24|67| And Isaac brought her into his mother Sarah's tent, and took Rebekah, and she became his wife; and he loved her: and Isaac was comforted after his mother's death.

Gen|25|1| Then again Abraham took a wife, and her name was Keturah.

Gen|25|2| And she bare him Zimran, and Jokshan, and Medan, and Midian, and Ishbak, and Shuah.

Gen|25|3| And Jokshan begat Sheba, and Dedan. And the sons of Dedan were Asshurim, and Letushim, and Leummim.

Gen|25|4| And the sons of Midian; Ephah, and Epher, and Hanoch, and Abidah, and Eldaah. All these were the children of Keturah.

Gen|25|5| And Abraham gave all that he had unto Isaac.

Gen|25|6| But unto the sons of the concubines, which Abraham had, Abraham gave gifts, and sent them away from Isaac his son, while he yet lived, eastward, unto the east country.

Gen|25|7| And these are the days of the years of Abraham's life which he lived, an hundred threescore and fifteen years.

Gen|25|8| Then Abraham gave up the ghost, and died in a good old age, an old man, and full of years; and was gathered to his people.

Gen|25|9| And his sons Isaac and Ishmael buried him in the cave of Machpelah, in the field of Ephron the son of Zohar the Hittite, which is before Mamre;

Gen|25|10| The field which Abraham purchased of the sons of Heth: there was Abraham buried, and Sarah his wife.

Gen|25|11| And it came to pass after the death of Abraham, that God blessed his son Isaac; and Isaac dwelt by the well Lahairoi.

Gen|25|12| Now these are the generations of Ishmael, Abraham's son, whom Hagar the Egyptian, Sarah's handmaid, bare unto Abraham:

Gen|25|13| And these are the names of the sons of Ishmael, by their names, according to their generations: the firstborn of Ishmael, Nebajoth; and Kedar, and Adbeel, and Mibsam,

Gen|25|14| And Mishma, and Dumah, and Massa,

Gen|25|15| Hadar, and Tema, Jetur, Naphish, and Kedemah:

Gen|25|16| These are the sons of Ishmael, and these are their names, by their towns, and by their castles; twelve princes according to their nations.

Gen|25|17| And these are the years of the life of Ishmael, an hundred and thirty and seven years: and he gave up the ghost and died; and was gathered unto his people.

Gen|25|18| And they dwelt from Havilah unto Shur, that is before Egypt, as thou goest toward Assyria: and he died in the presence of all his brethren.

Gen|25|19| And these are the generations of Isaac, Abraham's son: Abraham begat Isaac:

Gen|25|20| And Isaac was forty years old when he took Rebekah to wife, the daughter of Bethuel the Syrian of Padanaram, the sister to Laban the Syrian.

Gen|25|21| And Isaac intreated the LORD for his wife, because she was barren: and the LORD was intreated of him, and Rebekah his wife conceived.

Gen|25|22| And the children struggled together within her; and she said, If it be so, why am I thus? And she went to enquire of the LORD.

Gen|25|23| And the LORD said unto her, Two nations are in thy womb, and two manner of people shall be separated from thy bowels; and the one people shall be stronger than the other people; and the elder shall serve the younger.

Gen|25|24| And when her days to be delivered were fulfilled, behold, there were twins in her womb.

Gen|25|25| And the first came out red, all over like an hairy garment; and they called his name Esau.

Gen|25|26| And after that came his brother out, and his hand took hold on Esau's heel; and his name was called Jacob: and Isaac was threescore years old when she bare them.

Gen|25|27| And the boys grew: and Esau was a cunning hunter, a man of the field; and Jacob was a plain man, dwelling in tents.

Gen|25|28| And Isaac loved Esau, because he did eat of his venison: but Rebekah loved Jacob.

Gen|25|29| And Jacob sod pottage: and Esau came from the field, and he was faint:

Gen|25|30| And Esau said to Jacob, Feed me, I pray thee, with that same red pottage; for I am faint: therefore was his name called Edom.

Gen|25|31| And Jacob said, Sell me this day thy birthright.

Gen|25|32| And Esau said, Behold, I am at the point to die: and what profit shall this birthright do to me?

Gen|25|33| And Jacob said, Swear to me this day; and he sware unto him: and he sold his birthright unto Jacob.

Gen|25|34| Then Jacob gave Esau bread and pottage of lentiles; and he did eat and drink, and rose up, and went his way: thus Esau despised his birthright.

Gen|26|1| And there was a famine in the land, beside the first famine that was in the days of Abraham. And Isaac went unto Abimelech king of the Philistines unto Gerar.

Gen|26|2| And the LORD appeared unto him, and said, Go not down into Egypt; dwell in the land which I shall tell thee of:

Gen|26|3| Sojourn in this land, and I will be with thee, and will bless thee; for unto thee, and unto thy seed, I will give all these countries, and I will perform the oath which I sware unto Abraham thy father;

Gen|26|4| And I will make thy seed to multiply as the stars of heaven, and will give unto thy seed all these countries; and in thy seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed;

Gen|26|5| Because that Abraham obeyed my voice, and kept my charge, my commandments, my statutes, and my laws.

Gen|26|6| And Isaac dwelt in Gerar:

Gen|26|7| And the men of the place asked him of his wife; and he said, She is my sister: for he feared to say, She is my wife; lest, said he, the men of the place should kill me for Rebekah; because she was fair to look upon.

Gen|26|8| And it came to pass, when he had been there a long time, that Abimelech king of the Philistines looked out at a window, and saw, and, behold, Isaac was sporting with Rebekah his wife.

Gen|26|9| And Abimelech called Isaac, and said, Behold, of a surety she is thy wife; and how saidst thou, She is my sister? And Isaac said unto him, Because I said, Lest I die for her.

Gen|26|10| And Abimelech said, What is this thou hast done unto us? one of the people might lightly have lien with thy wife, and thou shouldest have brought guiltiness upon us.

Gen|26|11| And Abimelech charged all his people, saying, He that toucheth this man or his wife shall surely be put to death.

Gen|26|12| Then Isaac sowed in that land, and received in the same year an hundredfold: and the LORD blessed him.

Gen|26|13| And the man waxed great, and went forward, and grew until he became very great:

Gen|26|14| For he had possession of flocks, and possession of herds, and great store of servants: and the Philistines envied him.

Gen|26|15| For all the wells which his father's servants had digged in the days of Abraham his father, the Philistines had stopped them, and filled them with earth.

Gen|26|16| And Abimelech said unto Isaac, Go from us; for thou art much mightier than we.

Gen|26|17| And Isaac departed thence, and pitched his tent in the valley of Gerar, and dwelt there.

Gen|26|18| And Isaac digged again the wells of water, which they had digged in the days of Abraham his father; for the Philistines had stopped them after the death of Abraham: and he called their names after the names by which his father had called them.

Gen|26|19| And Isaac's servants digged in the valley, and found there a well of springing water.

Gen|26|20| And the herdmen of Gerar did strive with Isaac's herdmen, saying, The water is ours: and he called the name of the well Esek; because they strove with him.

Gen|26|21| And they digged another well, and strove for that also: and he called the name of it Sitnah.

Gen|26|22| And he removed from thence, and digged another well; and for that they strove not: and he called the name of it Rehoboth; and he said, For now the LORD hath made room for us, and we shall be fruitful in the land.

Gen|26|23| And he went up from thence to Beersheba.

Gen|26|24| And the LORD appeared unto him the same night, and said, I am the God of Abraham thy father: fear not, for I am with thee, and will bless thee, and multiply thy seed for my servant Abraham's sake.

Gen|26|25| And he builded an altar there, and called upon the name of the LORD, and pitched his tent there: and there Isaac's servants digged a well.

Gen|26|26| Then Abimelech went to him from Gerar, and Ahuzzath one of his friends, and Phichol the chief captain of his army.

Gen|26|27| And Isaac said unto them, Wherefore come ye to me, seeing ye hate me, and have sent me away from you?

Gen|26|28| And they said, We saw certainly that the LORD was with thee: and we said, Let there be now an oath betwixt us, even betwixt us and thee, and let us make a covenant with thee;

Gen|26|29| That thou wilt do us no hurt, as we have not touched thee, and as we have done unto thee nothing but good, and have sent thee away in peace: thou art now the blessed of the LORD.

Gen|26|30| And he made them a feast, and they did eat and drink.

Gen|26|31| And they rose up betimes in the morning, and sware one to another: and Isaac sent them away, and they departed from him in peace.

Gen|26|32| And it came to pass the same day, that Isaac's servants came, and told him concerning the well which they had digged, and said unto him, We have found water.

Gen|26|33| And he called it Shebah: therefore the name of the city is Beersheba unto this day.

Gen|26|34| And Esau was forty years old when he took to wife Judith the daughter of Beeri the Hittite, and Bashemath the daughter of Elon the Hittite:

Gen|26|35| Which were a grief of mind unto Isaac and to Rebekah.

Gen|27|1| And it came to pass, that when Isaac was old, and his eyes were dim, so that he could not see, he called Esau his eldest son, and said unto him, My son: and he said unto him, Behold, here am I.

Gen|27|2| And he said, Behold now, I am old, I know not the day of my death:

Gen|27|3| Now therefore take, I pray thee, thy weapons, thy quiver and thy bow, and go out to the field, and take me some venison;

Gen|27|4| And make me savoury meat, such as I love, and bring it to me, that I may eat; that my soul may bless thee before I die.

Gen|27|5| And Rebekah heard when Isaac spake to Esau his son. And Esau went to the field to hunt for venison, and to bring it.

Gen|27|6| And Rebekah spake unto Jacob her son, saying, Behold, I heard thy father speak unto Esau thy brother, saying,

Gen|27|7| Bring me venison, and make me savoury meat, that I may eat, and bless thee before the LORD before my death.

Gen|27|8| Now therefore, my son, obey my voice according to that which I command thee.

Gen|27|9| Go now to the flock, and fetch me from thence two good kids of the goats; and I will make them savoury meat for thy father, such as he loveth:

Gen|27|10| And thou shalt bring it to thy father, that he may eat, and that he may bless thee before his death.

Gen|27|11| And Jacob said to Rebekah his mother, Behold, Esau my brother is a hairy man, and I am a smooth man:

Gen|27|12| My father peradventure will feel me, and I shall seem to him as a deceiver; and I shall bring a curse upon me, and not a blessing.

Gen|27|13| And his mother said unto him, Upon me be thy curse, my son: only obey my voice, and go fetch me them.

Gen|27|14| And he went, and fetched, and brought them to his mother: and his mother made savoury meat, such as his father loved.

Gen|27|15| And Rebekah took goodly raiment of her eldest son Esau, which were with her in the house, and put them upon Jacob her younger son:

Gen|27|16| And she put the skins of the kids of the goats upon his hands, and upon the smooth of his neck:

Gen|27|17| And she gave the savoury meat and the bread, which she had prepared, into the hand of her son Jacob.

Gen|27|18| And he came unto his father, and said, My father: and he said, Here am I; who art thou, my son?

Gen|27|19| And Jacob said unto his father, I am Esau thy first born; I have done according as thou badest me: arise, I pray thee, sit and eat of my venison, that thy soul may bless me.

Gen|27|20| And Isaac said unto his son, How is it that thou hast found it so quickly, my son? And he said, Because the LORD thy God brought it to me.

Gen|27|21| And Isaac said unto Jacob, Come near, I pray thee, that I may feel thee, my son, whether thou be my very son Esau or not.

Gen|27|22| And Jacob went near unto Isaac his father; and he felt him, and said, The voice is Jacob's voice, but the hands are the hands of Esau.

Gen|27|23| And he discerned him not, because his hands were hairy, as his brother Esau's hands: so he blessed him.

Gen|27|24| And he said, Art thou my very son Esau? And he said, I am.

Gen|27|25| And he said, Bring it near to me, and I will eat of my son's venison, that my soul may bless thee. And he brought it near to him, and he did eat: and he brought him wine and he drank.

Gen|27|26| And his father Isaac said unto him, Come near now, and kiss me, my son.

Gen|27|27| And he came near, and kissed him: and he smelled the smell of his raiment, and blessed him, and said, See, the smell of my son is as the smell of a field which the LORD hath blessed:

Gen|27|28| Therefore God give thee of the dew of heaven, and the fatness of the earth, and plenty of corn and wine:

Gen|27|29| Let people serve thee, and nations bow down to thee: be lord over thy brethren, and let thy mother's sons bow down to thee: cursed be every one that curseth thee, and blessed be he that blesseth thee.

Gen|27|30| And it came to pass, as soon as Isaac had made an end of blessing Jacob, and Jacob was yet scarce gone out from the presence of Isaac his father, that Esau his brother came in from his hunting.

Gen|27|31| And he also had made savoury meat, and brought it unto his father, and said unto his father, Let my father arise, and eat of his son's venison, that thy soul may bless me.

Gen|27|32| And Isaac his father said unto him, Who art thou? And he said, I am thy son, thy firstborn Esau.

Gen|27|33| And Isaac trembled very exceedingly, and said, Who? where is he that hath taken venison, and brought it me, and I have eaten of all before thou camest, and have blessed him? yea, and he shall be blessed.

Gen|27|34| And when Esau heard the words of his father, he cried with a great and exceeding bitter cry, and said unto his father, Bless me, even me also, O my father.

Gen|27|35| And he said, Thy brother came with subtilty, and hath taken away thy blessing.

Gen|27|36| And he said, Is not he rightly named Jacob? for he hath supplanted me these two times: he took away my birthright; and, behold, now he hath taken away my blessing. And he said, Hast thou not reserved a blessing for me?

Gen|27|37| And Isaac answered and said unto Esau, Behold, I have made him thy lord, and all his brethren have I given to him for servants; and with corn and wine have I sustained him: and what shall I do now unto thee, my son?

Gen|27|38| And Esau said unto his father, Hast thou but one blessing, my father? bless me, even me also, O my father. And Esau lifted up his voice, and wept.

Gen|27|39| And Isaac his father answered and said unto him, Behold, thy dwelling shall be the fatness of the earth, and of the dew of heaven from above;

Gen|27|40| And by thy sword shalt thou live, and shalt serve thy brother; and it shall come to pass when thou shalt have the dominion, that thou shalt break his yoke from off thy neck.

Gen|27|41| And Esau hated Jacob because of the blessing wherewith his father blessed him: and Esau said in his heart, The days of mourning for my father are at hand; then will I slay my brother Jacob.

Gen|27|42| And these words of Esau her elder son were told to Rebekah: and she sent and called Jacob her younger son, and said unto him, Behold, thy brother Esau, as touching thee, doth comfort himself, purposing to kill thee.

Gen|27|43| Now therefore, my son, obey my voice; arise, flee thou to Laban my brother to Haran;

Gen|27|44| And tarry with him a few days, until thy brother's fury turn away;

Gen|27|45| Until thy brother's anger turn away from thee, and he forget that which thou hast done to him: then I will send, and fetch thee from thence: why should I be deprived also of you both in one day?

Gen|27|46| And Rebekah said to Isaac, I am weary of my life because of the daughters of Heth: if Jacob take a wife of the daughters of Heth, such as these which are of the daughters of the land, what good shall my life do me?

Gen|28|1| And Isaac called Jacob, and blessed him, and charged him, and said unto him, Thou shalt not take a wife of the daughters of Canaan.

Gen|28|2| Arise, go to Padanaram, to the house of Bethuel thy mother's father; and take thee a wife from thence of the daughers of Laban thy mother's brother.

Gen|28|3| And God Almighty bless thee, and make thee fruitful, and multiply thee, that thou mayest be a multitude of people;

Gen|28|4| And give thee the blessing of Abraham, to thee, and to thy seed with thee; that thou mayest inherit the land wherein thou art a stranger, which God gave unto Abraham.

Gen|28|5| And Isaac sent away Jacob: and he went to Padanaram unto Laban, son of Bethuel the Syrian, the brother of Rebekah, Jacob's and Esau's mother.

Gen|28|6| When Esau saw that Isaac had blessed Jacob, and sent him away to Padanaram, to take him a wife from thence; and that as he blessed him he gave him a charge, saying, Thou shalt not take a wife of the daughers of Canaan;

Gen|28|7| And that Jacob obeyed his father and his mother, and was gone to Padanaram;

Gen|28|8| And Esau seeing that the daughters of Canaan pleased not Isaac his father;

Gen|28|9| Then went Esau unto Ishmael, and took unto the wives which he had Mahalath the daughter of Ishmael Abraham's son, the sister of Nebajoth, to be his wife.

Gen|28|10| And Jacob went out from Beersheba, and went toward Haran.

Gen|28|11| And he lighted upon a certain place, and tarried there all night, because the sun was set; and he took of the stones of that place, and put them for his pillows, and lay down in that place to sleep.

Gen|28|12| And he dreamed, and behold a ladder set up on the earth, and the top of it reached to heaven: and behold the angels of God ascending and descending on it.

Gen|28|13| And, behold, the LORD stood above it, and said, I am the LORD God of Abraham thy father, and the God of Isaac: the land whereon thou liest, to thee will I give it, and to thy seed;

Gen|28|14| And thy seed shall be as the dust of the earth, and thou shalt spread abroad to the west, and to the east, and to the north, and to the south: and in thee and in thy seed shall all the families of the earth be blessed.

Gen|28|15| And, behold, I am with thee, and will keep thee in all places whither thou goest, and will bring thee again into this land; for I will not leave thee, until I have done that which I have spoken to thee of.

Gen|28|16| And Jacob awaked out of his sleep, and he said, Surely the LORD is in this place; and I knew it not.

Gen|28|17| And he was afraid, and said, How dreadful is this place! this is none other but the house of God, and this is the gate of heaven.

Gen|28|18| And Jacob rose up early in the morning, and took the stone that he had put for his pillows, and set it up for a pillar, and poured oil upon the top of it.

Gen|28|19| And he called the name of that place Bethel: but the name of that city was called Luz at the first.

Gen|28|20| And Jacob vowed a vow, saying, If God will be with me, and will keep me in this way that I go, and will give me bread to eat, and raiment to put on,

Gen|28|21| So that I come again to my father's house in peace; then shall the LORD be my God:

Gen|28|22| And this stone, which I have set for a pillar, shall be God's house: and of all that thou shalt give me I will surely give the tenth unto thee.

Gen|29|1| Then Jacob went on his journey, and came into the land of the people of the east.

Gen|29|2| And he looked, and behold a well in the field, and, lo, there were three flocks of sheep lying by it; for out of that well they watered the flocks: and a great stone was upon the well's mouth.

Gen|29|3| And thither were all the flocks gathered: and they rolled the stone from the well's mouth, and watered the sheep, and put the stone again upon the well's mouth in his place.

Gen|29|4| And Jacob said unto them, My brethren, whence be ye? And they said, Of Haran are we.

Gen|29|5| And he said unto them, Know ye Laban the son of Nahor? And they said, We know him.

Gen|29|6| And he said unto them, Is he well? And they said, He is well: and, behold, Rachel his daughter cometh with the sheep.

Gen|29|7| And he said, Lo, it is yet high day, neither is it time that the cattle should be gathered together: water ye the sheep, and go and feed them.

Gen|29|8| And they said, We cannot, until all the flocks be gathered together, and till they roll the stone from the well's mouth; then we water the sheep.

Gen|29|9| And while he yet spake with them, Rachel came with her father's sheep; for she kept them.

Gen|29|10| And it came to pass, when Jacob saw Rachel the daughter of Laban his mother's brother, and the sheep of Laban his mother's brother, that Jacob went near, and rolled the stone from the well's mouth, and watered the flock of Laban his mother's brother.

Gen|29|11| And Jacob kissed Rachel, and lifted up his voice, and wept.

Gen|29|12| And Jacob told Rachel that he was her father's brother, and that he was Rebekah's son: and she ran and told her father.

Gen|29|13| And it came to pass, when Laban heard the tidings of Jacob his sister's son, that he ran to meet him, and embraced him, and kissed him, and brought him to his house. And he told Laban all these things.

Gen|29|14| And Laban said to him, Surely thou art my bone and my flesh. And he abode with him the space of a month.

Gen|29|15| And Laban said unto Jacob, Because thou art my brother, shouldest thou therefore serve me for nought? tell me, what shall thy wages be?

Gen|29|16| And Laban had two daughters: the name of the elder was Leah, and the name of the younger was Rachel.

Gen|29|17| Leah was tender eyed; but Rachel was beautiful and well favoured.

Gen|29|18| And Jacob loved Rachel; and said, I will serve thee seven years for Rachel thy younger daughter.

Gen|29|19| And Laban said, It is better that I give her to thee, than that I should give her to another man: abide with me.

Gen|29|20| And Jacob served seven years for Rachel; and they seemed unto him but a few days, for the love he had to her.

Gen|29|21| And Jacob said unto Laban, Give me my wife, for my days are fulfilled, that I may go in unto her.

Gen|29|22| And Laban gathered together all the men of the place, and made a feast.

Gen|29|23| And it came to pass in the evening, that he took Leah his daughter, and brought her to him; and he went in unto her.

Gen|29|24| And Laban gave unto his daughter Leah Zilpah his maid for an handmaid.

Gen|29|25| And it came to pass, that in the morning, behold, it was Leah: and he said to Laban, What is this thou hast done unto me? did not I serve with thee for Rachel? wherefore then hast thou beguiled me?

Gen|29|26| And Laban said, It must not be so done in our country, to give the younger before the firstborn.

Gen|29|27| Fulfil her week, and we will give thee this also for the service which thou shalt serve with me yet seven other years.

Gen|29|28| And Jacob did so, and fulfilled her week: and he gave him Rachel his daughter to wife also.

Gen|29|29| And Laban gave to Rachel his daughter Bilhah his handmaid to be her maid.

Gen|29|30| And he went in also unto Rachel, and he loved also Rachel more than Leah, and served with him yet seven other years.

Gen|29|31| And when the LORD saw that Leah was hated, he opened her womb: but Rachel was barren.

Gen|29|32| And Leah conceived, and bare a son, and she called his name Reuben: for she said, Surely the LORD hath looked upon my affliction; now therefore my husband will love me.

Gen|29|33| And she conceived again, and bare a son; and said, Because the LORD hath heard I was hated, he hath therefore given me this son also: and she called his name Simeon.

Gen|29|34| And she conceived again, and bare a son; and said, Now this time will my husband be joined unto me, because I have born him three sons: therefore was his name called Levi.

Gen|29|35| And she conceived again, and bare a son: and she said, Now will I praise the LORD: therefore she called his name Judah; and left bearing.

Gen|30|1| And when Rachel saw that she bare Jacob no children, Rachel envied her sister; and said unto Jacob, Give me children, or else I die.

Gen|30|2| And Jacob's anger was kindled against Rachel: and he said, Am I in God's stead, who hath withheld from thee the fruit of the womb?

Gen|30|3| And she said, Behold my maid Bilhah, go in unto her; and she shall bear upon my knees, that I may also have children by her.

Gen|30|4| And she gave him Bilhah her handmaid to wife: and Jacob went in unto her.

Gen|30|5| And Bilhah conceived, and bare Jacob a son.

Gen|30|6| And Rachel said, God hath judged me, and hath also heard my voice, and hath given me a son: therefore called she his name Dan.

Gen|30|7| And Bilhah Rachel's maid conceived again, and bare Jacob a second son.

Gen|30|8| And Rachel said, With great wrestlings have I wrestled with my sister, and I have prevailed: and she called his name Naphtali.

Gen|30|9| When Leah saw that she had left bearing, she took Zilpah her maid, and gave her Jacob to wife.

Gen|30|10| And Zilpah Leah's maid bare Jacob a son.

Gen|30|11| And Leah said, A troop cometh: and she called his name Gad.

Gen|30|12| And Zilpah Leah's maid bare Jacob a second son.

Gen|30|13| And Leah said, Happy am I, for the daughters will call me blessed: and she called his name Asher.

Gen|30|14| And Reuben went in the days of wheat harvest, and found mandrakes in the field, and brought them unto his mother Leah. Then Rachel said to Leah, Give me, I pray thee, of thy son's mandrakes.

Gen|30|15| And she said unto her, Is it a small matter that thou hast taken my husband? and wouldest thou take away my son's mandrakes also? And Rachel said, Therefore he shall lie with thee to night for thy son's mandrakes.

Gen|30|16| And Jacob came out of the field in the evening, and Leah went out to meet him, and said, Thou must come in unto me; for surely I have hired thee with my son's mandrakes. And he lay with her that night.

Gen|30|17| And God hearkened unto Leah, and she conceived, and bare Jacob the fifth son.

Gen|30|18| And Leah said, God hath given me my hire, because I have given my maiden to my husband: and she called his name Issachar.

Gen|30|19| And Leah conceived again, and bare Jacob the sixth son.

Gen|30|20| And Leah said, God hath endued me with a good dowry; now will my husband dwell with me, because I have born him six sons: and she called his name Zebulun.

Gen|30|21| And afterwards she bare a daughter, and called her name Dinah.

Gen|30|22| And God remembered Rachel, and God hearkened to her, and opened her womb.

Gen|30|23| And she conceived, and bare a son; and said, God hath taken away my reproach:

Gen|30|24| And she called his name Joseph; and said, The LORD shall add to me another son.

Gen|30|25| And it came to pass, when Rachel had born Joseph, that Jacob said unto Laban, Send me away, that I may go unto mine own place, and to my country.

Gen|30|26| Give me my wives and my children, for whom I have served thee, and let me go: for thou knowest my service which I have done thee.

Gen|30|27| And Laban said unto him, I pray thee, if I have found favour in thine eyes, tarry: for I have learned by experience that the LORD hath blessed me for thy sake.

Gen|30|28| And he said, Appoint me thy wages, and I will give it.

Gen|30|29| And he said unto him, Thou knowest how I have served thee, and how thy cattle was with me.

Gen|30|30| For it was little which thou hadst before I came, and it is now increased unto a multitude; and the LORD hath blessed thee since my coming: and now when shall I provide for mine own house also?

Gen|30|31| And he said, What shall I give thee? And Jacob said, Thou shalt not give me any thing: if thou wilt do this thing for me, I will again feed and keep thy flock.

Gen|30|32| I will pass through all thy flock to day, removing from thence all the speckled and spotted cattle, and all the brown cattle among the sheep, and the spotted and speckled among the goats: and of such shall be my hire.

Gen|30|33| So shall my righteousness answer for me in time to come, when it shall come for my hire before thy face: every one that is not speckled and spotted among the goats, and brown among the sheep, that shall be counted stolen with me.

Gen|30|34| And Laban said, Behold, I would it might be according to thy word.

Gen|30|35| And he removed that day the he goats that were ringstraked and spotted, and all the she goats that were speckled and spotted, and every one that had some white in it, and all the brown among the sheep, and gave them into the hand of his sons.

Gen|30|36| And he set three days' journey betwixt himself and Jacob: and Jacob fed the rest of Laban's flocks.

Gen|30|37| And Jacob took him rods of green poplar, and of the hazel and chesnut tree; and pilled white strakes in them, and made the white appear which was in the rods.

Gen|30|38| And he set the rods which he had pilled before the flocks in the gutters in the watering troughs when the flocks came to drink, that they should conceive when they came to drink.

Gen|30|39| And the flocks conceived before the rods, and brought forth cattle ringstraked, speckled, and spotted.

Gen|30|40| And Jacob did separate the lambs, and set the faces of the flocks toward the ringstraked, and all the brown in the flock of Laban; and he put his own flocks by themselves, and put them not unto Laban's cattle.

Gen|30|41| And it came to pass, whensoever the stronger cattle did conceive, that Jacob laid the rods before the eyes of the cattle in the gutters, that they might conceive among the rods.

Gen|30|42| But when the cattle were feeble, he put them not in: so the feebler were Laban's, and the stronger Jacob's.

Gen|30|43| And the man increased exceedingly, and had much cattle, and maidservants, and menservants, and camels, and asses.

Gen|31|1| And he heard the words of Laban's sons, saying, Jacob hath taken away all that was our father's; and of that which was our father's hath he gotten all this glory.

Gen|31|2| And Jacob beheld the countenance of Laban, and, behold, it was not toward him as before.

Gen|31|3| And the LORD said unto Jacob, Return unto the land of thy fathers, and to thy kindred; and I will be with thee.

Gen|31|4| And Jacob sent and called Rachel and Leah to the field unto his flock,

Gen|31|5| And said unto them, I see your father's countenance, that it is not toward me as before; but the God of my father hath been with me.

Gen|31|6| And ye know that with all my power I have served your father.

Gen|31|7| And your father hath deceived me, and changed my wages ten times; but God suffered him not to hurt me.

Gen|31|8| If he said thus, The speckled shall be thy wages; then all the cattle bare speckled: and if he said thus, The ringstraked shall be thy hire; then bare all the cattle ringstraked.

Gen|31|9| Thus God hath taken away the cattle of your father, and given them to me.

Gen|31|10| And it came to pass at the time that the cattle conceived, that I lifted up mine eyes, and saw in a dream, and, behold, the rams which leaped upon the cattle were ringstraked, speckled, and grisled.

Gen|31|11| And the angel of God spake unto me in a dream, saying, Jacob: And I said, Here am I.

Gen|31|12| And he said, Lift up now thine eyes, and see, all the rams which leap upon the cattle are ringstraked, speckled, and grisled: for I have seen all that Laban doeth unto thee.

Gen|31|13| I am the God of Bethel, where thou anointedst the pillar, and where thou vowedst a vow unto me: now arise, get thee out from this land, and return unto the land of thy kindred.

Gen|31|14| And Rachel and Leah answered and said unto him, Is there yet any portion or inheritance for us in our father's house?

Gen|31|15| Are we not counted of him strangers? for he hath sold us, and hath quite devoured also our money.

Gen|31|16| For all the riches which God hath taken from our father, that is ours, and our children's: now then, whatsoever God hath said unto thee, do.

Gen|31|17| Then Jacob rose up, and set his sons and his wives upon camels;

Gen|31|18| And he carried away all his cattle, and all his goods which he had gotten, the cattle of his getting, which he had gotten in Padanaram, for to go to Isaac his father in the land of Canaan.

Gen|31|19| And Laban went to shear his sheep: and Rachel had stolen the images that were her father's.

Gen|31|20| And Jacob stole away unawares to Laban the Syrian, in that he told him not that he fled.

Gen|31|21| So he fled with all that he had; and he rose up, and passed over the river, and set his face toward the mount Gilead.

Gen|31|22| And it was told Laban on the third day that Jacob was fled.

Gen|31|23| And he took his brethren with him, and pursued after him seven days' journey; and they overtook him in the mount Gilead.

Gen|31|24| And God came to Laban the Syrian in a dream by night, and said unto him, Take heed that thou speak not to Jacob either good or bad.

Gen|31|25| Then Laban overtook Jacob. Now Jacob had pitched his tent in the mount: and Laban with his brethren pitched in the mount of Gilead.

Gen|31|26| And Laban said to Jacob, What hast thou done, that thou hast stolen away unawares to me, and carried away my daughters, as captives taken with the sword?

Gen|31|27| Wherefore didst thou flee away secretly, and steal away from me; and didst not tell me, that I might have sent thee away with mirth, and with songs, with tabret, and with harp?

Gen|31|28| And hast not suffered me to kiss my sons and my daughters? thou hast now done foolishly in so doing.

Gen|31|29| It is in the power of my hand to do you hurt: but the God of your father spake unto me yesternight, saying, Take thou heed that thou speak not to Jacob either good or bad.

Gen|31|30| And now, though thou wouldest needs be gone, because thou sore longedst after thy father's house, yet wherefore hast thou stolen my gods?

Gen|31|31| And Jacob answered and said to Laban, Because I was afraid: for I said, Peradventure thou wouldest take by force thy daughters from me.

Gen|31|32| With whomsoever thou findest thy gods, let him not live: before our brethren discern thou what is thine with me, and take it to thee. For Jacob knew not that Rachel had stolen them.

Gen|31|33| And Laban went into Jacob's tent, and into Leah's tent, and into the two maidservants' tents; but he found them not. Then went he out of Leah's tent, and entered into Rachel's tent.

Gen|31|34| Now Rachel had taken the images, and put them in the camel's furniture, and sat upon them. And Laban searched all the tent, but found them not.

Gen|31|35| And she said to her father, Let it not displease my lord that I cannot rise up before thee; for the custom of women is upon me. And he searched but found not the images.

Gen|31|36| And Jacob was wroth, and chode with Laban: and Jacob answered and said to Laban, What is my trespass? what is my sin, that thou hast so hotly pursued after me?

Gen|31|37| Whereas thou hast searched all my stuff, what hast thou found of all thy household stuff? set it here before my brethren and thy brethren, that they may judge betwixt us both.

Gen|31|38| This twenty years have I been with thee; thy ewes and thy she goats have not cast their young, and the rams of thy flock have I not eaten.

Gen|31|39| That which was torn of beasts I brought not unto thee; I bare the loss of it; of my hand didst thou require it, whether stolen by day, or stolen by night.

Gen|31|40| Thus I was; in the day the drought consumed me, and the frost by night; and my sleep departed from mine eyes.

Gen|31|41| Thus have I been twenty years in thy house; I served thee fourteen years for thy two daughters, and six years for thy cattle: and thou hast changed my wages ten times.

Gen|31|42| Except the God of my father, the God of Abraham, and the fear of Isaac, had been with me, surely thou hadst sent me away now empty. God hath seen mine affliction and the labour of my hands, and rebuked thee yesternight.

Gen|31|43| And Laban answered and said unto Jacob, These daughters are my daughters, and these children are my children, and these cattle are my cattle, and all that thou seest is mine: and what can I do this day unto these my daughters, or unto their children which they have born?

Gen|31|44| Now therefore come thou, let us make a covenant, I and thou; and let it be for a witness between me and thee.

Gen|31|45| And Jacob took a stone, and set it up for a pillar.

Gen|31|46| And Jacob said unto his brethren, Gather stones; and they took stones, and made an heap: and they did eat there upon the heap.

Gen|31|47| And Laban called it Jegarsahadutha: but Jacob called it Galeed.

Gen|31|48| And Laban said, This heap is a witness between me and thee this day. Therefore was the name of it called Galeed;

Gen|31|49| And Mizpah; for he said, The LORD watch between me and thee, when we are absent one from another.

Gen|31|50| If thou shalt afflict my daughters, or if thou shalt take other wives beside my daughters, no man is with us; see, God is witness betwixt me and thee.

Gen|31|51| And Laban said to Jacob, Behold this heap, and behold this pillar, which I have cast betwixt me and thee:

Gen|31|52| This heap be witness, and this pillar be witness, that I will not pass over this heap to thee, and that thou shalt not pass over this heap and this pillar unto me, for harm.

Gen|31|53| The God of Abraham, and the God of Nahor, the God of their father, judge betwixt us. And Jacob sware by the fear of his father Isaac.

Gen|31|54| Then Jacob offered sacrifice upon the mount, and called his brethren to eat bread: and they did eat bread, and tarried all night in the mount.

Gen|31|55| And early in the morning Laban rose up, and kissed his sons and his daughters, and blessed them: and Laban departed, and returned unto his place.

Gen|32|1| And Jacob went on his way, and the angels of God met him.

Gen|32|2| And when Jacob saw them, he said, This is God's host: and he called the name of that place Mahanaim.

Gen|32|3| And Jacob sent messengers before him to Esau his brother unto the land of Seir, the country of Edom.

Gen|32|4| And he commanded them, saying, Thus shall ye speak unto my lord Esau; Thy servant Jacob saith thus, I have sojourned with Laban, and stayed there until now:

Gen|32|5| And I have oxen, and asses, flocks, and menservants, and womenservants: and I have sent to tell my lord, that I may find grace in thy sight.

Gen|32|6| And the messengers returned to Jacob, saying, We came to thy brother Esau, and also he cometh to meet thee, and four hundred men with him.

Gen|32|7| Then Jacob was greatly afraid and distressed: and he divided the people that was with him, and the flocks, and herds, and the camels, into two bands;

Gen|32|8| And said, If Esau come to the one company, and smite it, then the other company which is left shall escape.

Gen|32|9| And Jacob said, O God of my father Abraham, and God of my father Isaac, the LORD which saidst unto me, Return unto thy country, and to thy kindred, and I will deal well with thee:

Gen|32|10| I am not worthy of the least of all the mercies, and of all the truth, which thou hast shewed unto thy servant; for with my staff I passed over this Jordan; and now I am become two bands.

Gen|32|11| Deliver me, I pray thee, from the hand of my brother, from the hand of Esau: for I fear him, lest he will come and smite me, and the mother with the children.

Gen|32|12| And thou saidst, I will surely do thee good, and make thy seed as the sand of the sea, which cannot be numbered for multitude.

Gen|32|13| And he lodged there that same night; and took of that which came to his hand a present for Esau his brother;

Gen|32|14| Two hundred she goats, and twenty he goats, two hundred ewes, and twenty rams,

Gen|32|15| Thirty milch camels with their colts, forty kine, and ten bulls, twenty she asses, and ten foals.

Gen|32|16| And he delivered them into the hand of his servants, every drove by themselves; and said unto his servants, Pass over before me, and put a space betwixt drove and drove.

Gen|32|17| And he commanded the foremost, saying, When Esau my brother meeteth thee, and asketh thee, saying, Whose art thou? and whither goest thou? and whose are these before thee?

Gen|32|18| Then thou shalt say, They be thy servant Jacob's; it is a present sent unto my lord Esau: and, behold, also he is behind us.

Gen|32|19| And so commanded he the second, and the third, and all that followed the droves, saying, On this manner shall ye speak unto Esau, when ye find him.

Gen|32|20| And say ye moreover, Behold, thy servant Jacob is behind us. For he said, I will appease him with the present that goeth before me, and afterward I will see his face; peradventure he will accept of me.

Gen|32|21| So went the present over before him: and himself lodged that night in the company.

Gen|32|22| And he rose up that night, and took his two wives, and his two womenservants, and his eleven sons, and passed over the ford Jabbok.

Gen|32|23| And he took them, and sent them over the brook, and sent over that he had.

Gen|32|24| And Jacob was left alone; and there wrestled a man with him until the breaking of the day.

Gen|32|25| And when he saw that he prevailed not against him, he touched the hollow of his thigh; and the hollow of Jacob's thigh was out of joint, as he wrestled with him.

Gen|32|26| And he said, Let me go, for the day breaketh. And he said, I will not let thee go, except thou bless me.

Gen|32|27| And he said unto him, What is thy name? And he said, Jacob.

Gen|32|28| And he said, Thy name shall be called no more Jacob, but Israel: for as a prince hast thou power with God and with men, and hast prevailed.

Gen|32|29| And Jacob asked him, and said, Tell me, I pray thee, thy name. And he said, Wherefore is it that thou dost ask after my name? And he blessed him there.

Gen|32|30| And Jacob called the name of the place Peniel: for I have seen God face to face, and my life is preserved.

Gen|32|31| And as he passed over Penuel the sun rose upon him, and he halted upon his thigh.

Gen|32|32| Therefore the children of Israel eat not of the sinew which shrank, which is upon the hollow of the thigh, unto this day: because he touched the hollow of Jacob's thigh in the sinew that shrank.

Gen|33|1| And Jacob lifted up his eyes, and looked, and, behold, Esau came, and with him four hundred men. And he divided the children unto Leah, and unto Rachel, and unto the two handmaids.

Gen|33|2| And he put the handmaids and their children foremost, and Leah and her children after, and Rachel and Joseph hindermost.

Gen|33|3| And he passed over before them, and bowed himself to the ground seven times, until he came near to his brother.

Gen|33|4| And Esau ran to meet him, and embraced him, and fell on his neck, and kissed him: and they wept.

Gen|33|5| And he lifted up his eyes, and saw the women and the children; and said, Who are those with thee? And he said, The children which God hath graciously given thy servant.

Gen|33|6| Then the handmaidens came near, they and their children, and they bowed themselves.

Gen|33|7| And Leah also with her children came near, and bowed themselves: and after came Joseph near and Rachel, and they bowed themselves.

Gen|33|8| And he said, What meanest thou by all this drove which I met? And he said, These are to find grace in the sight of my lord.

Gen|33|9| And Esau said, I have enough, my brother; keep that thou hast unto thyself.

Gen|33|10| And Jacob said, Nay, I pray thee, if now I have found grace in thy sight, then receive my present at my hand: for therefore I have seen thy face, as though I had seen the face of God, and thou wast pleased with me.

Gen|33|11| Take, I pray thee, my blessing that is brought to thee; because God hath dealt graciously with me, and because I have enough. And he urged him, and he took it.

Gen|33|12| And he said, Let us take our journey, and let us go, and I will go before thee.

Gen|33|13| And he said unto him, My lord knoweth that the children are tender, and the flocks and herds with young are with me: and if men should overdrive them one day, all the flock will die.

Gen|33|14| Let my lord, I pray thee, pass over before his servant: and I will lead on softly, according as the cattle that goeth before me and the children be able to endure, until I come unto my lord unto Seir.

Gen|33|15| And Esau said, Let me now leave with thee some of the folk that are with me. And he said, What needeth it? let me find grace in the sight of my lord.

Gen|33|16| So Esau returned that day on his way unto Seir.

Gen|33|17| And Jacob journeyed to Succoth, and built him an house, and made booths for his cattle: therefore the name of the place is called Succoth.

Gen|33|18| And Jacob came to Shalem, a city of Shechem, which is in the land of Canaan, when he came from Padanaram; and pitched his tent before the city.

Gen|33|19| And he bought a parcel of a field, where he had spread his tent, at the hand of the children of Hamor, Shechem's father, for an hundred pieces of money.

Gen|33|20| And he erected there an altar, and called it EleloheIsrael.

Gen|34|1| And Dinah the daughter of Leah, which she bare unto Jacob, went out to see the daughters of the land.

Gen|34|2| And when Shechem the son of Hamor the Hivite, prince of the country, saw her, he took her, and lay with her, and defiled her.

Gen|34|3| And his soul clave unto Dinah the daughter of Jacob, and he loved the damsel, and spake kindly unto the damsel.

Gen|34|4| And Shechem spake unto his father Hamor, saying, Get me this damsel to wife.

Gen|34|5| And Jacob heard that he had defiled Dinah his daughter: now his sons were with his cattle in the field: and Jacob held his peace until they were come.

Gen|34|6| And Hamor the father of Shechem went out unto Jacob to commune with him.

Gen|34|7| And the sons of Jacob came out of the field when they heard it: and the men were grieved, and they were very wroth, because he had wrought folly in Israel in lying with Jacob's daughter: which thing ought not to be done.

Gen|34|8| And Hamor communed with them, saying, The soul of my son Shechem longeth for your daughter: I pray you give her him to wife.

Gen|34|9| And make ye marriages with us, and give your daughters unto us, and take our daughters unto you.

Gen|34|10| And ye shall dwell with us: and the land shall be before you; dwell and trade ye therein, and get you possessions therein.

Gen|34|11| And Shechem said unto her father and unto her brethren, Let me find grace in your eyes, and what ye shall say unto me I will give.

Gen|34|12| Ask me never so much dowry and gift, and I will give according as ye shall say unto me: but give me the damsel to wife.

Gen|34|13| And the sons of Jacob answered Shechem and Hamor his father deceitfully, and said, because he had defiled Dinah their sister:

Gen|34|14| And they said unto them, We cannot do this thing, to give our sister to one that is uncircumcised; for that were a reproach unto us:

Gen|34|15| But in this will we consent unto you: If ye will be as we be, that every male of you be circumcised;

Gen|34|16| Then will we give our daughters unto you, and we will take your daughters to us, and we will dwell with you, and we will become one people.

Gen|34|17| But if ye will not hearken unto us, to be circumcised; then will we take our daughter, and we will be gone.

Gen|34|18| And their words pleased Hamor, and Shechem Hamor's son.

Gen|34|19| And the young man deferred not to do the thing, because he had delight in Jacob's daughter: and he was more honourable than all the house of his father.

Gen|34|20| And Hamor and Shechem his son came unto the gate of their city, and communed with the men of their city, saying,

Gen|34|21| These men are peaceable with us; therefore let them dwell in the land, and trade therein; for the land, behold, it is large enough for them; let us take their daughters to us for wives, and let us give them our daughters.

Gen|34|22| Only herein will the men consent unto us for to dwell with us, to be one people, if every male among us be circumcised, as they are circumcised.

Gen|34|23| Shall not their cattle and their substance and every beast of their's be our's? only let us consent unto them, and they will dwell with us.

Gen|34|24| And unto Hamor and unto Shechem his son hearkened all that went out of the gate of his city; and every male was circumcised, all that went out of the gate of his city.

Gen|34|25| And it came to pass on the third day, when they were sore, that two of the sons of Jacob, Simeon and Levi, Dinah's brethren, took each man his sword, and came upon the city boldly, and slew all the males.

Gen|34|26| And they slew Hamor and Shechem his son with the edge of the sword, and took Dinah out of Shechem's house, and went out.

Gen|34|27| The sons of Jacob came upon the slain, and spoiled the city, because they had defiled their sister.

Gen|34|28| They took their sheep, and their oxen, and their asses, and that which was in the city, and that which was in the field,

Gen|34|29| And all their wealth, and all their little ones, and their wives took they captive, and spoiled even all that was in the house.

Gen|34|30| And Jacob said to Simeon and Levi, Ye have troubled me to make me to stink among the inhabitants of the land, among the Canaanites and the Perizzites: and I being few in number, they shall gather themselves together against me, and slay me; and I shall be destroyed, I and my house.

Gen|34|31| And they said, Should he deal with our sister as with an harlot?

Gen|35|1| And God said unto Jacob, Arise, go up to Bethel, and dwell there: and make there an altar unto God, that appeared unto thee when thou fleddest from the face of Esau thy brother.

Gen|35|2| Then Jacob said unto his household, and to all that were with him, Put away the strange gods that are among you, and be clean, and change your garments:

Gen|35|3| And let us arise, and go up to Bethel; and I will make there an altar unto God, who answered me in the day of my distress, and was with me in the way which I went.

Gen|35|4| And they gave unto Jacob all the strange gods which were in their hand, and all their earrings which were in their ears; and Jacob hid them under the oak which was by Shechem.

Gen|35|5| And they journeyed: and the terror of God was upon the cities that were round about them, and they did not pursue after the sons of Jacob.

Gen|35|6| So Jacob came to Luz, which is in the land of Canaan, that is, Bethel, he and all the people that were with him.

Gen|35|7| And he built there an altar, and called the place Elbethel: because there God appeared unto him, when he fled from the face of his brother.

Gen|35|8| But Deborah Rebekah's nurse died, and she was buried beneath Bethel under an oak: and the name of it was called Allonbachuth.

Gen|35|9| And God appeared unto Jacob again, when he came out of Padanaram, and blessed him.

Gen|35|10| And God said unto him, Thy name is Jacob: thy name shall not be called any more Jacob, but Israel shall be thy name: and he called his name Israel.

Gen|35|11| And God said unto him, I am God Almighty: be fruitful and multiply; a nation and a company of nations shall be of thee, and kings shall come out of thy loins;

Gen|35|12| And the land which I gave Abraham and Isaac, to thee I will give it, and to thy seed after thee will I give the land.

Gen|35|13| And God went up from him in the place where he talked with him.

Gen|35|14| And Jacob set up a pillar in the place where he talked with him, even a pillar of stone: and he poured a drink offering thereon, and he poured oil thereon.

Gen|35|15| And Jacob called the name of the place where God spake with him, Bethel.

Gen|35|16| And they journeyed from Bethel; and there was but a little way to come to Ephrath: and Rachel travailed, and she had hard labour.

Gen|35|17| And it came to pass, when she was in hard labour, that the midwife said unto her, Fear not; thou shalt have this son also.

Gen|35|18| And it came to pass, as her soul was in departing, (for she died) that she called his name Benoni: but his father called him Benjamin.

Gen|35|19| And Rachel died, and was buried in the way to Ephrath, which is Bethlehem.

Gen|35|20| And Jacob set a pillar upon her grave: that is the pillar of Rachel's grave unto this day.

Gen|35|21| And Israel journeyed, and spread his tent beyond the tower of Edar.

Gen|35|22| And it came to pass, when Israel dwelt in that land, that Reuben went and lay with Bilhah his father's concubine: and Israel heard it. Now the sons of Jacob were twelve:

Gen|35|23| The sons of Leah; Reuben, Jacob's firstborn, and Simeon, and Levi, and Judah, and Issachar, and Zebulun:

Gen|35|24| The sons of Rachel; Joseph, and Benjamin:

Gen|35|25| And the sons of Bilhah, Rachel's handmaid; Dan, and Naphtali:

Gen|35|26| And the sons of Zilpah, Leah's handmaid: Gad, and Asher: these are the sons of Jacob, which were born to him in Padanaram.

Gen|35|27| And Jacob came unto Isaac his father unto Mamre, unto the city of Arbah, which is Hebron, where Abraham and Isaac sojourned.

Gen|35|28| And the days of Isaac were an hundred and fourscore years.

Gen|35|29| And Isaac gave up the ghost, and died, and was gathered unto his people, being old and full of days: and his sons Esau and Jacob buried him.

Gen|36|1| Now these are the generations of Esau, who is Edom.

Gen|36|2| Esau took his wives of the daughters of Canaan; Adah the daughter of Elon the Hittite, and Aholibamah the daughter of Anah the daughter of Zibeon the Hivite;

Gen|36|3| And Bashemath Ishmael's daughter, sister of Nebajoth.

Gen|36|4| And Adah bare to Esau Eliphaz; and Bashemath bare Reuel;

Gen|36|5| And Aholibamah bare Jeush, and Jaalam, and Korah: these are the sons of Esau, which were born unto him in the land of Canaan.

Gen|36|6| And Esau took his wives, and his sons, and his daughters, and all the persons of his house, and his cattle, and all his beasts, and all his substance, which he had got in the land of Canaan; and went into the country from the face of his brother Jacob.

Gen|36|7| For their riches were more than that they might dwell together; and the land wherein they were strangers could not bear them because of their cattle.

Gen|36|8| Thus dwelt Esau in mount Seir: Esau is Edom.

Gen|36|9| And these are the generations of Esau the father of the Edomites in mount Seir:

Gen|36|10| These are the names of Esau's sons; Eliphaz the son of Adah the wife of Esau, Reuel the son of Bashemath the wife of Esau.

Gen|36|11| And the sons of Eliphaz were Teman, Omar, Zepho, and Gatam, and Kenaz.

Gen|36|12| And Timna was concubine to Eliphaz Esau's son; and she bare to Eliphaz Amalek: these were the sons of Adah Esau's wife.

Gen|36|13| And these are the sons of Reuel; Nahath, and Zerah, Shammah, and Mizzah: these were the sons of Bashemath Esau's wife.

Gen|36|14| And these were the sons of Aholibamah, the daughter of Anah the daughter of Zibeon, Esau's wife: and she bare to Esau Jeush, and Jaalam, and Korah.

Gen|36|15| These were dukes of the sons of Esau: the sons of Eliphaz the firstborn son of Esau; duke Teman, duke Omar, duke Zepho, duke Kenaz,

Gen|36|16| Duke Korah, duke Gatam, and duke Amalek: these are the dukes that came of Eliphaz in the land of Edom; these were the sons of Adah.

Gen|36|17| And these are the sons of Reuel Esau's son; duke Nahath, duke Zerah, duke Shammah, duke Mizzah: these are the dukes that came of Reuel in the land of Edom; these are the sons of Bashemath Esau's wife.

Gen|36|18| And these are the sons of Aholibamah Esau's wife; duke Jeush, duke Jaalam, duke Korah: these were the dukes that came of Aholibamah the daughter of Anah, Esau's wife.

Gen|36|19| These are the sons of Esau, who is Edom, and these are their dukes.

Gen|36|20| These are the sons of Seir the Horite, who inhabited the land; Lotan, and Shobal, and Zibeon, and Anah,

Gen|36|21| And Dishon, and Ezer, and Dishan: these are the dukes of the Horites, the children of Seir in the land of Edom.

Gen|36|22| And the children of Lotan were Hori and Hemam; and Lotan's sister was Timna.

Gen|36|23| And the children of Shobal were these; Alvan, and Manahath, and Ebal, Shepho, and Onam.

Gen|36|24| And these are the children of Zibeon; both Ajah, and Anah: this was that Anah that found the mules in the wilderness, as he fed the asses of Zibeon his father.

Gen|36|25| And the children of Anah were these; Dishon, and Aholibamah the daughter of Anah.

Gen|36|26| And these are the children of Dishon; Hemdan, and Eshban, and Ithran, and Cheran.

Gen|36|27| The children of Ezer are these; Bilhan, and Zaavan, and Akan.

Gen|36|28| The children of Dishan are these; Uz, and Aran.

Gen|36|29| These are the dukes that came of the Horites; duke Lotan, duke Shobal, duke Zibeon, duke Anah,

Gen|36|30| Duke Dishon, duke Ezer, duke Dishan: these are the dukes that came of Hori, among their dukes in the land of Seir.

Gen|36|31| And these are the kings that reigned in the land of Edom, before there reigned any king over the children of Israel.

Gen|36|32| And Bela the son of Beor reigned in Edom: and the name of his city was Dinhabah.

Gen|36|33| And Bela died, and Jobab the son of Zerah of Bozrah reigned in his stead.

Gen|36|34| And Jobab died, and Husham of the land of Temani reigned in his stead.

Gen|36|35| And Husham died, and Hadad the son of Bedad, who smote Midian in the field of Moab, reigned in his stead: and the name of his city was Avith.

Gen|36|36| And Hadad died, and Samlah of Masrekah reigned in his stead.

Gen|36|37| And Samlah died, and Saul of Rehoboth by the river reigned in his stead.

Gen|36|38| And Saul died, and Baalhanan the son of Achbor reigned in his stead.

Gen|36|39| And Baalhanan the son of Achbor died, and Hadar reigned in his stead: and the name of his city was Pau; and his wife's name was Mehetabel, the daughter of Matred, the daughter of Mezahab.

Gen|36|40| And these are the names of the dukes that came of Esau, according to their families, after their places, by their names; duke Timnah, duke Alvah, duke Jetheth,

Gen|36|41| Duke Aholibamah, duke Elah, duke Pinon,

Gen|36|42| Duke Kenaz, duke Teman, duke Mibzar,

Gen|36|43| Duke Magdiel, duke Iram: these be the dukes of Edom, according to their habitations in the land of their possession: he is Esau the father of the Edomites.

Gen|37|1| And Jacob dwelt in the land wherein his father was a stranger, in the land of Canaan.

Gen|37|2| These are the generations of Jacob. Joseph, being seventeen years old, was feeding the flock with his brethren; and the lad was with the sons of Bilhah, and with the sons of Zilpah, his father's wives: and Joseph brought unto his father their evil report.

Gen|37|3| Now Israel loved Joseph more than all his children, because he was the son of his old age: and he made him a coat of many colours.

Gen|37|4| And when his brethren saw that their father loved him more than all his brethren, they hated him, and could not speak peaceably unto him.

Gen|37|5| And Joseph dreamed a dream, and he told it his brethren: and they hated him yet the more.

Gen|37|6| And he said unto them, Hear, I pray you, this dream which I have dreamed:

Gen|37|7| For, behold, we were binding sheaves in the field, and, lo, my sheaf arose, and also stood upright; and, behold, your sheaves stood round about, and made obeisance to my sheaf.

Gen|37|8| And his brethren said to him, Shalt thou indeed reign over us? or shalt thou indeed have dominion over us? And they hated him yet the more for his dreams, and for his words.

Gen|37|9| And he dreamed yet another dream, and told it his brethren, and said, Behold, I have dreamed a dream more; and, behold, the sun and the moon and the eleven stars made obeisance to me.

Gen|37|10| And he told it to his father, and to his brethren: and his father rebuked him, and said unto him, What is this dream that thou hast dreamed?Shall I and thy mother and thy brethren indeed come to bow down ourselves to thee to the earth?

Gen|37|11| And his brethren envied him; but his father observed the saying.

Gen|37|12| And his brethren went to feed their father's flock in Shechem.

Gen|37|13| And Israel said unto Joseph, Do not thy brethren feed the flock in Shechem? come, and I will send thee unto them. And he said to him, Here am I.

Gen|37|14| And he said to him, Go, I pray thee, see whether it be well with thy brethren, and well with the flocks; and bring me word again. So he sent him out of the vale of Hebron, and he came to Shechem.

Gen|37|15| And a certain man found him, and, behold, he was wandering in the field: and the man asked him, saying, What seekest thou?

Gen|37|16| And he said, I seek my brethren: tell me, I pray thee, where they feed their flocks.

Gen|37|17| And the man said, They are departed hence; for I heard them say, Let us go to Dothan. And Joseph went after his brethren, and found them in Dothan.

Gen|37|18| And when they saw him afar off, even before he came near unto them, they conspired against him to slay him.

Gen|37|19| And they said one to another, Behold, this dreamer cometh.

Gen|37|20| Come now therefore, and let us slay him, and cast him into some pit, and we will say, Some evil beast hath devoured him: and we shall see what will become of his dreams.

Gen|37|21| And Reuben heard it, and he delivered him out of their hands; and said, Let us not kill him.

Gen|37|22| And Reuben said unto them, Shed no blood, but cast him into this pit that is in the wilderness, and lay no hand upon him; that he might rid him out of their hands, to deliver him to his father again.

Gen|37|23| And it came to pass, when Joseph was come unto his brethren, that they stript Joseph out of his coat, his coat of many colours that was on him;

Gen|37|24| And they took him, and cast him into a pit: and the pit was empty, there was no water in it.

Gen|37|25| And they sat down to eat bread: and they lifted up their eyes and looked, and, behold, a company of Ishmeelites came from Gilead with their camels bearing spicery and balm and myrrh, going to carry it down to Egypt.

Gen|37|26| And Judah said unto his brethren, What profit is it if we slay our brother, and conceal his blood?

Gen|37|27| Come, and let us sell him to the Ishmeelites, and let not our hand be upon him; for he is our brother and our flesh. And his brethren were content.

Gen|37|28| Then there passed by Midianites merchantmen; and they drew and lifted up Joseph out of the pit, and sold Joseph to the Ishmeelites for twenty pieces of silver: and they brought Joseph into Egypt.

Gen|37|29| And Reuben returned unto the pit; and, behold, Joseph was not in the pit; and he rent his clothes.

Gen|37|30| And he returned unto his brethren, and said, The child is not; and I, whither shall I go?

Gen|37|31| And they took Joseph's coat, and killed a kid of the goats, and dipped the coat in the blood;

Gen|37|32| And they sent the coat of many colours, and they brought it to their father; and said, This have we found: know now whether it be thy son's coat or no.

Gen|37|33| And he knew it, and said, It is my son's coat; an evil beast hath devoured him; Joseph is without doubt rent in pieces.

Gen|37|34| And Jacob rent his clothes, and put sackcloth upon his loins, and mourned for his son many days.

Gen|37|35| And all his sons and all his daughters rose up to comfort him; but he refused to be comforted; and he said, For I will go down into the grave unto my son mourning. Thus his father wept for him.

Gen|37|36| And the Midianites sold him into Egypt unto Potiphar, an officer of Pharaoh's, and captain of the guard.

Gen|38|1| And it came to pass at that time, that Judah went down from his brethren, and turned in to a certain Adullamite, whose name was Hirah.

Gen|38|2| And Judah saw there a daughter of a certain Canaanite, whose name was Shuah; and he took her, and went in unto her.

Gen|38|3| And she conceived, and bare a son; and he called his name Er.

Gen|38|4| And she conceived again, and bare a son; and she called his name Onan.

Gen|38|5| And she yet again conceived, and bare a son; and called his name Shelah: and he was at Chezib, when she bare him.

Gen|38|6| And Judah took a wife for Er his firstborn, whose name was Tamar.

Gen|38|7| And Er, Judah's firstborn, was wicked in the sight of the LORD; and the LORD slew him.

Gen|38|8| And Judah said unto Onan, Go in unto thy brother's wife, and marry her, and raise up seed to thy brother.

Gen|38|9| And Onan knew that the seed should not be his; and it came to pass, when he went in unto his brother's wife, that he spilled it on the ground, lest that he should give seed to his brother.

Gen|38|10| And the thing which he did displeased the LORD: wherefore he slew him also.

Gen|38|11| Then said Judah to Tamar his daughter in law, Remain a widow at thy father's house, till Shelah my son be grown: for he said, Lest peradventure he die also, as his brethren did. And Tamar went and dwelt in her father's house.

Gen|38|12| And in process of time the daughter of Shuah Judah's wife died; and Judah was comforted, and went up unto his sheepshearers to Timnath, he and his friend Hirah the Adullamite.

Gen|38|13| And it was told Tamar, saying, Behold thy father in law goeth up to Timnath to shear his sheep.

Gen|38|14| And she put her widow's garments off from her, and covered her with a vail, and wrapped herself, and sat in an open place, which is by the way to Timnath; for she saw that Shelah was grown, and she was not given unto him to wife.

Gen|38|15| When Judah saw her, he thought her to be an harlot; because she had covered her face.

Gen|38|16| And he turned unto her by the way, and said, Go to, I pray thee, let me come in unto thee; (for he knew not that she was his daughter in law.) And she said, What wilt thou give me, that thou mayest come in unto me?

Gen|38|17| And he said, I will send thee a kid from the flock. And she said, Wilt thou give me a pledge, till thou send it?

Gen|38|18| And he said, What pledge shall I give thee? And she said, Thy signet, and thy bracelets, and thy staff that is in thine hand. And he gave it her, and came in unto her, and she conceived by him.

Gen|38|19| And she arose, and went away, and laid by her vail from her, and put on the garments of her widowhood.

Gen|38|20| And Judah sent the kid by the hand of his friend the Adullamite, to receive his pledge from the woman's hand: but he found her not.

Gen|38|21| Then he asked the men of that place, saying, Where is the harlot, that was openly by the way side? And they said, There was no harlot in this place.

Gen|38|22| And he returned to Judah, and said, I cannot find her; and also the men of the place said, that there was no harlot in this place.

Gen|38|23| And Judah said, Let her take it to her, lest we be shamed: behold, I sent this kid, and thou hast not found her.

Gen|38|24| And it came to pass about three months after, that it was told Judah, saying, Tamar thy daughter in law hath played the harlot; and also, behold, she is with child by whoredom. And Judah said, Bring her forth, and let her be burnt.

Gen|38|25| When she was brought forth, she sent to her father in law, saying, By the man, whose these are, am I with child: and she said, Discern, I pray thee, whose are these, the signet, and bracelets, and staff.

Gen|38|26| And Judah acknowledged them, and said, She hath been more righteous than I; because that I gave her not to Shelah my son. And he knew her again no more.

Gen|38|27| And it came to pass in the time of her travail, that, behold, twins were in her womb.

Gen|38|28| And it came to pass, when she travailed, that the one put out his hand: and the midwife took and bound upon his hand a scarlet thread, saying, This came out first.

Gen|38|29| And it came to pass, as he drew back his hand, that, behold, his brother came out: and she said, How hast thou broken forth? this breach be upon thee: therefore his name was called Pharez.

Gen|38|30| And afterward came out his brother, that had the scarlet thread upon his hand: and his name was called Zarah.

Gen|39|1| And Joseph was brought down to Egypt; and Potiphar, an officer of Pharaoh, captain of the guard, an Egyptian, bought him of the hands of the Ishmeelites, which had brought him down thither.

Gen|39|2| And the LORD was with Joseph, and he was a prosperous man; and he was in the house of his master the Egyptian.

Gen|39|3| And his master saw that the LORD was with him, and that the LORD made all that he did to prosper in his hand.

Gen|39|4| And Joseph found grace in his sight, and he served him: and he made him overseer over his house, and all that he had he put into his hand.

Gen|39|5| And it came to pass from the time that he had made him overseer in his house, and over all that he had, that the LORD blessed the Egyptian's house for Joseph's sake; and the blessing of the LORD was upon all that he had in the house, and in the field.

Gen|39|6| And he left all that he had in Joseph's hand; and he knew not ought he had, save the bread which he did eat. And Joseph was a goodly person, and well favoured.

Gen|39|7| And it came to pass after these things, that his master's wife cast her eyes upon Joseph; and she said, Lie with me.

Gen|39|8| But he refused, and said unto his master's wife, Behold, my master wotteth not what is with me in the house, and he hath committed all that he hath to my hand;

Gen|39|9| There is none greater in this house than I; neither hath he kept back any thing from me but thee, because thou art his wife: how then can I do this great wickedness, and sin against God?

Gen|39|10| And it came to pass, as she spake to Joseph day by day, that he hearkened not unto her, to lie by her, or to be with her.

Gen|39|11| And it came to pass about this time, that Joseph went into the house to do his business; and there was none of the men of the house there within.

Gen|39|12| And she caught him by his garment, saying, Lie with me: and he left his garment in her hand, and fled, and got him out.

Gen|39|13| And it came to pass, when she saw that he had left his garment in her hand, and was fled forth,

Gen|39|14| That she called unto the men of her house, and spake unto them, saying, See, he hath brought in an Hebrew unto us to mock us; he came in unto me to lie with me, and I cried with a loud voice:

Gen|39|15| And it came to pass, when he heard that I lifted up my voice and cried, that he left his garment with me, and fled, and got him out.

Gen|39|16| And she laid up his garment by her, until his lord came home.

Gen|39|17| And she spake unto him according to these words, saying, The Hebrew servant, which thou hast brought unto us, came in unto me to mock me:

Gen|39|18| And it came to pass, as I lifted up my voice and cried, that he left his garment with me, and fled out.

Gen|39|19| And it came to pass, when his master heard the words of his wife, which she spake unto him, saying, After this manner did thy servant to me; that his wrath was kindled.

Gen|39|20| And Joseph's master took him, and put him into the prison, a place where the king's prisoners were bound: and he was there in the prison.

Gen|39|21| But the LORD was with Joseph, and shewed him mercy, and gave him favour in the sight of the keeper of the prison.

Gen|39|22| And the keeper of the prison committed to Joseph's hand all the prisoners that were in the prison; and whatsoever they did there, he was the doer of it.

Gen|39|23| The keeper of the prison looked not to any thing that was under his hand; because the LORD was with him, and that which he did, the LORD made it to prosper.

Gen|40|1| And it came to pass after these things, that the butler of the king of Egypt and his baker had offended their lord the king of Egypt.

Gen|40|2| And Pharaoh was wroth against two of his officers, against the chief of the butlers, and against the chief of the bakers.

Gen|40|3| And he put them in ward in the house of the captain of the guard, into the prison, the place where Joseph was bound.

Gen|40|4| And the captain of the guard charged Joseph with them, and he served them: and they continued a season in ward.

Gen|40|5| And they dreamed a dream both of them, each man his dream in one night, each man according to the interpretation of his dream, the butler and the baker of the king of Egypt, which were bound in the prison.

Gen|40|6| And Joseph came in unto them in the morning, and looked upon them, and, behold, they were sad.

Gen|40|7| And he asked Pharaoh's officers that were with him in the ward of his lord's house, saying, Wherefore look ye so sadly to day?

Gen|40|8| And they said unto him, We have dreamed a dream, and there is no interpreter of it. And Joseph said unto them, Do not interpretations belong to God? tell me them, I pray you.

Gen|40|9| And the chief butler told his dream to Joseph, and said to him, In my dream, behold, a vine was before me;

Gen|40|10| And in the vine were three branches: and it was as though it budded, and her blossoms shot forth; and the clusters thereof brought forth ripe grapes:

Gen|40|11| And Pharaoh's cup was in my hand: and I took the grapes, and pressed them into Pharaoh's cup, and I gave the cup into Pharaoh's hand.

Gen|40|12| And Joseph said unto him, This is the interpretation of it: The three branches are three days:

Gen|40|13| Yet within three days shall Pharaoh lift up thine head, and restore thee unto thy place: and thou shalt deliver Pharaoh's cup into his hand, after the former manner when thou wast his butler.

Gen|40|14| But think on me when it shall be well with thee, and shew kindness, I pray thee, unto me, and make mention of me unto Pharaoh, and bring me out of this house:

Gen|40|15| For indeed I was stolen away out of the land of the Hebrews: and here also have I done nothing that they should put me into the dungeon.

Gen|40|16| When the chief baker saw that the interpretation was good, he said unto Joseph, I also was in my dream, and, behold, I had three white baskets on my head:

Gen|40|17| And in the uppermost basket there was of all manner of bakemeats for Pharaoh; and the birds did eat them out of the basket upon my head.

Gen|40|18| And Joseph answered and said, This is the interpretation thereof: The three baskets are three days:

Gen|40|19| Yet within three days shall Pharaoh lift up thy head from off thee, and shall hang thee on a tree; and the birds shall eat thy flesh from off thee.

Gen|40|20| And it came to pass the third day, which was Pharaoh's birthday, that he made a feast unto all his servants: and he lifted up the head of the chief butler and of the chief baker among his servants.

Gen|40|21| And he restored the chief butler unto his butlership again; and he gave the cup into Pharaoh's hand:

Gen|40|22| But he hanged the chief baker: as Joseph had interpreted to them.

Gen|40|23| Yet did not the chief butler remember Joseph, but forgat him.

Gen|41|1| And it came to pass at the end of two full years, that Pharaoh dreamed: and, behold, he stood by the river.

Gen|41|2| And, behold, there came up out of the river seven well favoured kine and fatfleshed; and they fed in a meadow.

Gen|41|3| And, behold, seven other kine came up after them out of the river, ill favoured and leanfleshed; and stood by the other kine upon the brink of the river.

Gen|41|4| And the ill favoured and leanfleshed kine did eat up the seven well favoured and fat kine. So Pharaoh awoke.

Gen|41|5| And he slept and dreamed the second time: and, behold, seven ears of corn came up upon one stalk, rank and good.

Gen|41|6| And, behold, seven thin ears and blasted with the east wind sprung up after them.

Gen|41|7| And the seven thin ears devoured the seven rank and full ears. And Pharaoh awoke, and, behold, it was a dream.

Gen|41|8| And it came to pass in the morning that his spirit was troubled; and he sent and called for all the magicians of Egypt, and all the wise men thereof: and Pharaoh told them his dream; but there was none that could interpret them unto Pharaoh.

Gen|41|9| Then spake the chief butler unto Pharaoh, saying, I do remember my faults this day:

Gen|41|10| Pharaoh was wroth with his servants, and put me in ward in the captain of the guard's house, both me and the chief baker:

Gen|41|11| And we dreamed a dream in one night, I and he; we dreamed each man according to the interpretation of his dream.

Gen|41|12| And there was there with us a young man, an Hebrew, servant to the captain of the guard; and we told him, and he interpreted to us our dreams; to each man according to his dream he did interpret.

Gen|41|13| And it came to pass, as he interpreted to us, so it was; me he restored unto mine office, and him he hanged.

Gen|41|14| Then Pharaoh sent and called Joseph, and they brought him hastily out of the dungeon: and he shaved himself, and changed his raiment, and came in unto Pharaoh.

Gen|41|15| And Pharaoh said unto Joseph, I have dreamed a dream, and there is none that can interpret it: and I have heard say of thee, that thou canst understand a dream to interpret it.

Gen|41|16| And Joseph answered Pharaoh, saying, It is not in me: God shall give Pharaoh an answer of peace.

Gen|41|17| And Pharaoh said unto Joseph, In my dream, behold, I stood upon the bank of the river:

Gen|41|18| And, behold, there came up out of the river seven kine, fatfleshed and well favoured; and they fed in a meadow:

Gen|41|19| And, behold, seven other kine came up after them, poor and very ill favoured and leanfleshed, such as I never saw in all the land of Egypt for badness:

Gen|41|20| And the lean and the ill favoured kine did eat up the first seven fat kine:

Gen|41|21| And when they had eaten them up, it could not be known that they had eaten them; but they were still ill favoured, as at the beginning. So I awoke.

Gen|41|22| And I saw in my dream, and, behold, seven ears came up in one stalk, full and good:

Gen|41|23| And, behold, seven ears, withered, thin, and blasted with the east wind, sprung up after them:

Gen|41|24| And the thin ears devoured the seven good ears: and I told this unto the magicians; but there was none that could declare it to me.

Gen|41|25| And Joseph said unto Pharaoh, The dream of Pharaoh is one: God hath shewed Pharaoh what he is about to do.

Gen|41|26| The seven good kine are seven years; and the seven good ears are seven years: the dream is one.

Gen|41|27| And the seven thin and ill favoured kine that came up after them are seven years; and the seven empty ears blasted with the east wind shall be seven years of famine.

Gen|41|28| This is the thing which I have spoken unto Pharaoh: What God is about to do he sheweth unto Pharaoh.

Gen|41|29| Behold, there come seven years of great plenty throughout all the land of Egypt:

Gen|41|30| And there shall arise after them seven years of famine; and all the plenty shall be forgotten in the land of Egypt; and the famine shall consume the land;

Gen|41|31| And the plenty shall not be known in the land by reason of that famine following; for it shall be very grievous.

Gen|41|32| And for that the dream was doubled unto Pharaoh twice; it is because the thing is established by God, and God will shortly bring it to pass.

Gen|41|33| Now therefore let Pharaoh look out a man discreet and wise, and set him over the land of Egypt.

Gen|41|34| Let Pharaoh do this, and let him appoint officers over the land, and take up the fifth part of the land of Egypt in the seven plenteous years.

Gen|41|35| And let them gather all the food of those good years that come, and lay up corn under the hand of Pharaoh, and let them keep food in the cities.

Gen|41|36| And that food shall be for store to the land against the seven years of famine, which shall be in the land of Egypt; that the land perish not through the famine.

Gen|41|37| And the thing was good in the eyes of Pharaoh, and in the eyes of all his servants.

Gen|41|38| And Pharaoh said unto his servants, Can we find such a one as this is, a man in whom the Spirit of God is?

Gen|41|39| And Pharaoh said unto Joseph, Forasmuch as God hath shewed thee all this, there is none so discreet and wise as thou art:

Gen|41|40| Thou shalt be over my house, and according unto thy word shall all my people be ruled: only in the throne will I be greater than thou.

Gen|41|41| And Pharaoh said unto Joseph, See, I have set thee over all the land of Egypt.

Gen|41|42| And Pharaoh took off his ring from his hand, and put it upon Joseph's hand, and arrayed him in vestures of fine linen, and put a gold chain about his neck;

Gen|41|43| And he made him to ride in the second chariot which he had; and they cried before him, Bow the knee: and he made him ruler over all the land of Egypt.

Gen|41|44| And Pharaoh said unto Joseph, I am Pharaoh, and without thee shall no man lift up his hand or foot in all the land of Egypt.

Gen|41|45| And Pharaoh called Joseph's name Zaphnathpaaneah; and he gave him to wife Asenath the daughter of Potipherah priest of On. And Joseph went out over all the land of Egypt.

Gen|41|46| And Joseph was thirty years old when he stood before Pharaoh king of Egypt. And Joseph went out from the presence of Pharaoh, and went throughout all the land of Egypt.

Gen|41|47| And in the seven plenteous years the earth brought forth by handfuls.

Gen|41|48| And he gathered up all the food of the seven years, which were in the land of Egypt, and laid up the food in the cities: the food of the field, which was round about every city, laid he up in the same.

Gen|41|49| And Joseph gathered corn as the sand of the sea, very much, until he left numbering; for it was without number.

Gen|41|50| And unto Joseph were born two sons before the years of famine came, which Asenath the daughter of Potipherah priest of On bare unto him.

Gen|41|51| And Joseph called the name of the firstborn Manasseh: For God, said he, hath made me forget all my toil, and all my father's house.

Gen|41|52| And the name of the second called he Ephraim: For God hath caused me to be fruitful in the land of my affliction.

Gen|41|53| And the seven years of plenteousness, that was in the land of Egypt, were ended.

Gen|41|54| And the seven years of dearth began to come, according as Joseph had said: and the dearth was in all lands; but in all the land of Egypt there was bread.

Gen|41|55| And when all the land of Egypt was famished, the people cried to Pharaoh for bread: and Pharaoh said unto all the Egyptians, Go unto Joseph; what he saith to you, do.

Gen|41|56| And the famine was over all the face of the earth: and Joseph opened all the storehouses, and sold unto the Egyptians; and the famine waxed sore in the land of Egypt.

Gen|41|57| And all countries came into Egypt to Joseph for to buy corn; because that the famine was so sore in all lands.

Gen|42|1| Now when Jacob saw that there was corn in Egypt, Jacob said unto his sons, Why do ye look one upon another?

Gen|42|2| And he said, Behold, I have heard that there is corn in Egypt: get you down thither, and buy for us from thence; that we may live, and not die.

Gen|42|3| And Joseph's ten brethren went down to buy corn in Egypt.

Gen|42|4| But Benjamin, Joseph's brother, Jacob sent not with his brethren; for he said, Lest peradventure mischief befall him.

Gen|42|5| And the sons of Israel came to buy corn among those that came: for the famine was in the land of Canaan.

Gen|42|6| And Joseph was the governor over the land, and he it was that sold to all the people of the land: and Joseph's brethren came, and bowed down themselves before him with their faces to the earth.

Gen|42|7| And Joseph saw his brethren, and he knew them, but made himself strange unto them, and spake roughly unto them; and he said unto them, Whence come ye? And they said, From the land of Canaan to buy food.

Gen|42|8| And Joseph knew his brethren, but they knew not him.

Gen|42|9| And Joseph remembered the dreams which he dreamed of them, and said unto them, Ye are spies; to see the nakedness of the land ye are come.

Gen|42|10| And they said unto him, Nay, my lord, but to buy food are thy servants come.

Gen|42|11| We are all one man's sons; we are true men, thy servants are no spies.

Gen|42|12| And he said unto them, Nay, but to see the nakedness of the land ye are come.

Gen|42|13| And they said, Thy servants are twelve brethren, the sons of one man in the land of Canaan; and, behold, the youngest is this day with our father, and one is not.

Gen|42|14| And Joseph said unto them, That is it that I spake unto you, saying, Ye are spies:

Gen|42|15| Hereby ye shall be proved: By the life of Pharaoh ye shall not go forth hence, except your youngest brother come hither.

Gen|42|16| Send one of you, and let him fetch your brother, and ye shall be kept in prison, that your words may be proved, whether there be any truth in you: or else by the life of Pharaoh surely ye are spies.

Gen|42|17| And he put them all together into ward three days.

Gen|42|18| And Joseph said unto them the third day, This do, and live; for I fear God:

Gen|42|19| If ye be true men, let one of your brethren be bound in the house of your prison: go ye, carry corn for the famine of your houses:

Gen|42|20| But bring your youngest brother unto me; so shall your words be verified, and ye shall not die. And they did so.

Gen|42|21| And they said one to another, We are verily guilty concerning our brother, in that we saw the anguish of his soul, when he besought us, and we would not hear; therefore is this distress come upon us.

Gen|42|22| And Reuben answered them, saying, Spake I not unto you, saying, Do not sin against the child; and ye would not hear? therefore, behold, also his blood is required.

Gen|42|23| And they knew not that Joseph understood them; for he spake unto them by an interpreter.

Gen|42|24| And he turned himself about from them, and wept; and returned to them again, and communed with them, and took from them Simeon, and bound him before their eyes.

Gen|42|25| Then Joseph commanded to fill their sacks with corn, and to restore every man's money into his sack, and to give them provision for the way: and thus did he unto them.

Gen|42|26| And they laded their asses with the corn, and departed thence.

Gen|42|27| And as one of them opened his sack to give his ass provender in the inn, he espied his money; for, behold, it was in his sack's mouth.

Gen|42|28| And he said unto his brethren, My money is restored; and, lo, it is even in my sack: and their heart failed them, and they were afraid, saying one to another, What is this that God hath done unto us?

Gen|42|29| And they came unto Jacob their father unto the land of Canaan, and told him all that befell unto them; saying,

Gen|42|30| The man, who is the lord of the land, spake roughly to us, and took us for spies of the country.

Gen|42|31| And we said unto him, We are true men; we are no spies:

Gen|42|32| We be twelve brethren, sons of our father; one is not, and the youngest is this day with our father in the land of Canaan.

Gen|42|33| And the man, the lord of the country, said unto us, Hereby shall I know that ye are true men; leave one of your brethren here with me, and take food for the famine of your households, and be gone:

Gen|42|34| And bring your youngest brother unto me: then shall I know that ye are no spies, but that ye are true men: so will I deliver you your brother, and ye shall traffick in the land.

Gen|42|35| And it came to pass as they emptied their sacks, that, behold, every man's bundle of money was in his sack: and when both they and their father saw the bundles of money, they were afraid.

Gen|42|36| And Jacob their father said unto them, Me have ye bereaved of my children: Joseph is not, and Simeon is not, and ye will take Benjamin away: all these things are against me.

Gen|42|37| And Reuben spake unto his father, saying, Slay my two sons, if I bring him not to thee: deliver him into my hand, and I will bring him to thee again.

Gen|42|38| And he said, My son shall not go down with you; for his brother is dead, and he is left alone: if mischief befall him by the way in the which ye go, then shall ye bring down my gray hairs with sorrow to the grave.

Gen|43|1| And the famine was sore in the land.

Gen|43|2| And it came to pass, when they had eaten up the corn which they had brought out of Egypt, their father said unto them, Go again, buy us a little food.

Gen|43|3| And Judah spake unto him, saying, The man did solemnly protest unto us, saying, Ye shall not see my face, except your brother be with you.

Gen|43|4| If thou wilt send our brother with us, we will go down and buy thee food:

Gen|43|5| But if thou wilt not send him, we will not go down: for the man said unto us, Ye shall not see my face, except your brother be with you.

Gen|43|6| And Israel said, Wherefore dealt ye so ill with me, as to tell the man whether ye had yet a brother?

Gen|43|7| And they said, The man asked us straitly of our state, and of our kindred, saying, Is your father yet alive? have ye another brother? and we told him according to the tenor of these words: could we certainly know that he would say, Bring your brother down?

Gen|43|8| And Judah said unto Israel his father, Send the lad with me, and we will arise and go; that we may live, and not die, both we, and thou, and also our little ones.

Gen|43|9| I will be surety for him; of my hand shalt thou require him: if I bring him not unto thee, and set him before thee, then let me bear the blame for ever:

Gen|43|10| For except we had lingered, surely now we had returned this second time.

Gen|43|11| And their father Israel said unto them, If it must be so now, do this; take of the best fruits in the land in your vessels, and carry down the man a present, a little balm, and a little honey, spices, and myrrh, nuts, and almonds:

Gen|43|12| And take double money in your hand; and the money that was brought again in the mouth of your sacks, carry it again in your hand; peradventure it was an oversight:

Gen|43|13| Take also your brother, and arise, go again unto the man:

Gen|43|14| And God Almighty give you mercy before the man, that he may send away your other brother, and Benjamin. If I be bereaved of my children, I am bereaved.

Gen|43|15| And the men took that present, and they took double money in their hand and Benjamin; and rose up, and went down to Egypt, and stood before Joseph.

Gen|43|16| And when Joseph saw Benjamin with them, he said to the ruler of his house, Bring these men home, and slay, and make ready; for these men shall dine with me at noon.

Gen|43|17| And the man did as Joseph bade; and the man brought the men into Joseph's house.

Gen|43|18| And the men were afraid, because they were brought into Joseph's house; and they said, Because of the money that was returned in our sacks at the first time are we brought in; that he may seek occasion against us, and fall upon us, and take us for bondmen, and our asses.

Gen|43|19| And they came near to the steward of Joseph's house, and they communed with him at the door of the house,

Gen|43|20| And said, O sir, we came indeed down at the first time to buy food:

Gen|43|21| And it came to pass, when we came to the inn, that we opened our sacks, and, behold, every man's money was in the mouth of his sack, our money in full weight: and we have brought it again in our hand.

Gen|43|22| And other money have we brought down in our hands to buy food: we cannot tell who put our money in our sacks.

Gen|43|23| And he said, Peace be to you, fear not: your God, and the God of your father, hath given you treasure in your sacks: I had your money. And he brought Simeon out unto them.

Gen|43|24| And the man brought the men into Joseph's house, and gave them water, and they washed their feet; and he gave their asses provender.

Gen|43|25| And they made ready the present against Joseph came at noon: for they heard that they should eat bread there.

Gen|43|26| And when Joseph came home, they brought him the present which was in their hand into the house, and bowed themselves to him to the earth.

Gen|43|27| And he asked them of their welfare, and said, Is your father well, the old man of whom ye spake? Is he yet alive?

Gen|43|28| And they answered, Thy servant our father is in good health, he is yet alive. And they bowed down their heads, and made obeisance.

Gen|43|29| And he lifted up his eyes, and saw his brother Benjamin, his mother's son, and said, Is this your younger brother, of whom ye spake unto me? And he said, God be gracious unto thee, my son.

Gen|43|30| And Joseph made haste; for his bowels did yearn upon his brother: and he sought where to weep; and he entered into his chamber, and wept there.

Gen|43|31| And he washed his face, and went out, and refrained himself, and said, Set on bread.

Gen|43|32| And they set on for him by himself, and for them by themselves, and for the Egyptians, which did eat with him, by themselves: because the Egyptians might not eat bread with the Hebrews; for that is an abomination unto the Egyptians.

Gen|43|33| And they sat before him, the firstborn according to his birthright, and the youngest according to his youth: and the men marvelled one at another.

Gen|43|34| And he took and sent messes unto them from before him: but Benjamin's mess was five times so much as any of their's. And they drank, and were merry with him.

Gen|44|1| And he commanded the steward of his house, saying, Fill the men's sacks with food, as much as they can carry, and put every man's money in his sack's mouth.

Gen|44|2| And put my cup, the silver cup, in the sack's mouth of the youngest, and his corn money. And he did according to the word that Joseph had spoken.

Gen|44|3| As soon as the morning was light, the men were sent away, they and their asses.

Gen|44|4| And when they were gone out of the city, and not yet far off, Joseph said unto his steward, Up, follow after the men; and when thou dost overtake them, say unto them, Wherefore have ye rewarded evil for good?

Gen|44|5| Is not this it in which my lord drinketh, and whereby indeed he divineth? ye have done evil in so doing.

Gen|44|6| And he overtook them, and he spake unto them these same words.

Gen|44|7| And they said unto him, Wherefore saith my lord these words? God forbid that thy servants should do according to this thing:

Gen|44|8| Behold, the money, which we found in our sacks' mouths, we brought again unto thee out of the land of Canaan: how then should we steal out of thy lord's house silver or gold?

Gen|44|9| With whomsoever of thy servants it be found, both let him die, and we also will be my lord's bondmen.

Gen|44|10| And he said, Now also let it be according unto your words: he with whom it is found shall be my servant; and ye shall be blameless.

Gen|44|11| Then they speedily took down every man his sack to the ground, and opened every man his sack.

Gen|44|12| And he searched, and began at the eldest, and left at the youngest: and the cup was found in Benjamin's sack.

Gen|44|13| Then they rent their clothes, and laded every man his ass, and returned to the city.

Gen|44|14| And Judah and his brethren came to Joseph's house; for he was yet there: and they fell before him on the ground.

Gen|44|15| And Joseph said unto them, What deed is this that ye have done? wot ye not that such a man as I can certainly divine?

Gen|44|16| And Judah said, What shall we say unto my lord? what shall we speak? or how shall we clear ourselves? God hath found out the iniquity of thy servants: behold, we are my lord's servants, both we, and he also with whom the cup is found.

Gen|44|17| And he said, God forbid that I should do so: but the man in whose hand the cup is found, he shall be my servant; and as for you, get you up in peace unto your father.

Gen|44|18| Then Judah came near unto him, and said, Oh my lord, let thy servant, I pray thee, speak a word in my lord's ears, and let not thine anger burn against thy servant: for thou art even as Pharaoh.

Gen|44|19| My lord asked his servants, saying, Have ye a father, or a brother?

Gen|44|20| And we said unto my lord, We have a father, an old man, and a child of his old age, a little one; and his brother is dead, and he alone is left of his mother, and his father loveth him.

Gen|44|21| And thou saidst unto thy servants, Bring him down unto me, that I may set mine eyes upon him.

Gen|44|22| And we said unto my lord, The lad cannot leave his father: for if he should leave his father, his father would die.

Gen|44|23| And thou saidst unto thy servants, Except your youngest brother come down with you, ye shall see my face no more.

Gen|44|24| And it came to pass when we came up unto thy servant my father, we told him the words of my lord.

Gen|44|25| And our father said, Go again, and buy us a little food.

Gen|44|26| And we said, We cannot go down: if our youngest brother be with us, then will we go down: for we may not see the man's face, except our youngest brother be with us.

Gen|44|27| And thy servant my father said unto us, Ye know that my wife bare me two sons:

Gen|44|28| And the one went out from me, and I said, Surely he is torn in pieces; and I saw him not since:

Gen|44|29| And if ye take this also from me, and mischief befall him, ye shall bring down my gray hairs with sorrow to the grave.

Gen|44|30| Now therefore when I come to thy servant my father, and the lad be not with us; seeing that his life is bound up in the lad's life;

Gen|44|31| It shall come to pass, when he seeth that the lad is not with us, that he will die: and thy servants shall bring down the gray hairs of thy servant our father with sorrow to the grave.

Gen|44|32| For thy servant became surety for the lad unto my father, saying, If I bring him not unto thee, then I shall bear the blame to my father for ever.

Gen|44|33| Now therefore, I pray thee, let thy servant abide instead of the lad a bondman to my lord; and let the lad go up with his brethren.

Gen|44|34| For how shall I go up to my father, and the lad be not with me? lest peradventure I see the evil that shall come on my father.

Gen|45|1| Then Joseph could not refrain himself before all them that stood by him; and he cried, Cause every man to go out from me. And there stood no man with him, while Joseph made himself known unto his brethren.

Gen|45|2| And he wept aloud: and the Egyptians and the house of Pharaoh heard.

Gen|45|3| And Joseph said unto his brethren, I am Joseph; doth my father yet live? And his brethren could not answer him; for they were troubled at his presence.

Gen|45|4| And Joseph said unto his brethren, Come near to me, I pray you. And they came near. And he said, I am Joseph your brother, whom ye sold into Egypt.

Gen|45|5| Now therefore be not grieved, nor angry with yourselves, that ye sold me hither: for God did send me before you to preserve life.

Gen|45|6| For these two years hath the famine been in the land: and yet there are five years, in the which there shall neither be earing nor harvest.

Gen|45|7| And God sent me before you to preserve you a posterity in the earth, and to save your lives by a great deliverance.

Gen|45|8| So now it was not you that sent me hither, but God: and he hath made me a father to Pharaoh, and lord of all his house, and a ruler throughout all the land of Egypt.

Gen|45|9| Haste ye, and go up to my father, and say unto him, Thus saith thy son Joseph, God hath made me lord of all Egypt: come down unto me, tarry not:

Gen|45|10| And thou shalt dwell in the land of Goshen, and thou shalt be near unto me, thou, and thy children, and thy children's children, and thy flocks, and thy herds, and all that thou hast:

Gen|45|11| And there will I nourish thee; for yet there are five years of famine; lest thou, and thy household, and all that thou hast, come to poverty.

Gen|45|12| And, behold, your eyes see, and the eyes of my brother Benjamin, that it is my mouth that speaketh unto you.

Gen|45|13| And ye shall tell my father of all my glory in Egypt, and of all that ye have seen; and ye shall haste and bring down my father hither.

Gen|45|14| And he fell upon his brother Benjamin's neck, and wept; and Benjamin wept upon his neck.

Gen|45|15| Moreover he kissed all his brethren, and wept upon them: and after that his brethren talked with him.

Gen|45|16| And the fame thereof was heard in Pharaoh's house, saying, Joseph's brethren are come: and it pleased Pharaoh well, and his servants.

Gen|45|17| And Pharaoh said unto Joseph, Say unto thy brethren, This do ye; lade your beasts, and go, get you unto the land of Canaan;

Gen|45|18| And take your father and your households, and come unto me: and I will give you the good of the land of Egypt, and ye shall eat the fat of the land.

Gen|45|19| Now thou art commanded, this do ye; take you wagons out of the land of Egypt for your little ones, and for your wives, and bring your father, and come.

Gen|45|20| Also regard not your stuff; for the good of all the land of Egypt is your's.

Gen|45|21| And the children of Israel did so: and Joseph gave them wagons, according to the commandment of Pharaoh, and gave them provision for the way.

Gen|45|22| To all of them he gave each man changes of raiment; but to Benjamin he gave three hundred pieces of silver, and five changes of raiment.

Gen|45|23| And to his father he sent after this manner; ten asses laden with the good things of Egypt, and ten she asses laden with corn and bread and meat for his father by the way.

Gen|45|24| So he sent his brethren away, and they departed: and he said unto them, See that ye fall not out by the way.

Gen|45|25| And they went up out of Egypt, and came into the land of Canaan unto Jacob their father,

Gen|45|26| And told him, saying, Joseph is yet alive, and he is governor over all the land of Egypt. And Jacob's heart fainted, for he believed them not.

Gen|45|27| And they told him all the words of Joseph, which he had said unto them: and when he saw the wagons which Joseph had sent to carry him, the spirit of Jacob their father revived:

Gen|45|28| And Israel said, It is enough; Joseph my son is yet alive: I will go and see him before I die.

Gen|46|1| And Israel took his journey with all that he had, and came to Beersheba, and offered sacrifices unto the God of his father Isaac.

Gen|46|2| And God spake unto Israel in the visions of the night, and said, Jacob, Jacob. And he said, Here am I.

Gen|46|3| And he said, I am God, the God of thy father: fear not to go down into Egypt; for I will there make of thee a great nation:

Gen|46|4| I will go down with thee into Egypt; and I will also surely bring thee up again: and Joseph shall put his hand upon thine eyes.

Gen|46|5| And Jacob rose up from Beersheba: and the sons of Israel carried Jacob their father, and their little ones, and their wives, in the wagons which Pharaoh had sent to carry him.

Gen|46|6| And they took their cattle, and their goods, which they had gotten in the land of Canaan, and came into Egypt, Jacob, and all his seed with him:

Gen|46|7| His sons, and his sons' sons with him, his daughters, and his sons' daughters, and all his seed brought he with him into Egypt.

Gen|46|8| And these are the names of the children of Israel, which came into Egypt, Jacob and his sons: Reuben, Jacob's firstborn.

Gen|46|9| And the sons of Reuben; Hanoch, and Phallu, and Hezron, and Carmi.

Gen|46|10| And the sons of Simeon; Jemuel, and Jamin, and Ohad, and Jachin, and Zohar, and Shaul the son of a Canaanitish woman.

Gen|46|11| And the sons of Levi; Gershon, Kohath, and Merari.

Gen|46|12| And the sons of Judah; Er, and Onan, and Shelah, and Pharez, and Zarah: but Er and Onan died in the land of Canaan. And the sons of Pharez were Hezron and Hamul.

Gen|46|13| And the sons of Issachar; Tola, and Phuvah, and Job, and Shimron.

Gen|46|14| And the sons of Zebulun; Sered, and Elon, and Jahleel.

Gen|46|15| These be the sons of Leah, which she bare unto Jacob in Padanaram, with his daughter Dinah: all the souls of his sons and his daughters were thirty and three.

Gen|46|16| And the sons of Gad; Ziphion, and Haggi, Shuni, and Ezbon, Eri, and Arodi, and Areli.

Gen|46|17| And the sons of Asher; Jimnah, and Ishuah, and Isui, and Beriah, and Serah their sister: and the sons of Beriah; Heber, and Malchiel.

Gen|46|18| These are the sons of Zilpah, whom Laban gave to Leah his daughter, and these she bare unto Jacob, even sixteen souls.

Gen|46|19| The sons of Rachel Jacob's wife; Joseph, and Benjamin.

Gen|46|20| And unto Joseph in the land of Egypt were born Manasseh and Ephraim, which Asenath the daughter of Potipherah priest of On bare unto him.

Gen|46|21| And the sons of Benjamin were Belah, and Becher, and Ashbel, Gera, and Naaman, Ehi, and Rosh, Muppim, and Huppim, and Ard.

Gen|46|22| These are the sons of Rachel, which were born to Jacob: all the souls were fourteen.

Gen|46|23| And the sons of Dan; Hushim.

Gen|46|24| And the sons of Naphtali; Jahzeel, and Guni, and Jezer, and Shillem.

Gen|46|25| These are the sons of Bilhah, which Laban gave unto Rachel his daughter, and she bare these unto Jacob: all the souls were seven.

Gen|46|26| All the souls that came with Jacob into Egypt, which came out of his loins, besides Jacob's sons' wives, all the souls were threescore and six;

Gen|46|27| And the sons of Joseph, which were born him in Egypt, were two souls: all the souls of the house of Jacob, which came into Egypt, were threescore and ten.

Gen|46|28| And he sent Judah before him unto Joseph, to direct his face unto Goshen; and they came into the land of Goshen.

Gen|46|29| And Joseph made ready his chariot, and went up to meet Israel his father, to Goshen, and presented himself unto him; and he fell on his neck, and wept on his neck a good while.

Gen|46|30| And Israel said unto Joseph, Now let me die, since I have seen thy face, because thou art yet alive.

Gen|46|31| And Joseph said unto his brethren, and unto his father's house, I will go up, and shew Pharaoh, and say unto him, My brethren, and my father's house, which were in the land of Canaan, are come unto me;

Gen|46|32| And the men are shepherds, for their trade hath been to feed cattle; and they have brought their flocks, and their herds, and all that they have.

Gen|46|33| And it shall come to pass, when Pharaoh shall call you, and shall say, What is your occupation?

Gen|46|34| That ye shall say, Thy servants' trade hath been about cattle from our youth even until now, both we, and also our fathers: that ye may dwell in the land of Goshen; for every shepherd is an abomination unto the Egyptians.

Gen|47|1| Then Joseph came and told Pharaoh, and said, My father and my brethren, and their flocks, and their herds, and all that they have, are come out of the land of Canaan; and, behold, they are in the land of Goshen.

Gen|47|2| And he took some of his brethren, even five men, and presented them unto Pharaoh.

Gen|47|3| And Pharaoh said unto his brethren, What is your occupation? And they said unto Pharaoh, Thy servants are shepherds, both we, and also our fathers.

Gen|47|4| They said morever unto Pharaoh, For to sojourn in the land are we come; for thy servants have no pasture for their flocks; for the famine is sore in the land of Canaan: now therefore, we pray thee, let thy servants dwell in the land of Goshen.

Gen|47|5| And Pharaoh spake unto Joseph, saying, Thy father and thy brethren are come unto thee:

Gen|47|6| The land of Egypt is before thee; in the best of the land make thy father and brethren to dwell; in the land of Goshen let them dwell: and if thou knowest any men of activity among them, then make them rulers over my cattle.

Gen|47|7| And Joseph brought in Jacob his father, and set him before Pharaoh: and Jacob blessed Pharaoh.

Gen|47|8| And Pharaoh said unto Jacob, How old art thou?

Gen|47|9| And Jacob said unto Pharaoh, The days of the years of my pilgrimage are an hundred and thirty years: few and evil have the days of the years of my life been, and have not attained unto the days of the years of the life of my fathers in the days of their pilgrimage.

Gen|47|10| And Jacob blessed Pharaoh, and went out from before Pharaoh.

Gen|47|11| And Joseph placed his father and his brethren, and gave them a possession in the land of Egypt, in the best of the land, in the land of Rameses, as Pharaoh had commanded.

Gen|47|12| And Joseph nourished his father, and his brethren, and all his father's household, with bread, according to their families.

Gen|47|13| And there was no bread in all the land; for the famine was very sore, so that the land of Egypt and all the land of Canaan fainted by reason of the famine.

Gen|47|14| And Joseph gathered up all the money that was found in the land of Egypt, and in the land of Canaan, for the corn which they bought: and Joseph brought the money into Pharaoh's house.

Gen|47|15| And when money failed in the land of Egypt, and in the land of Canaan, all the Egyptians came unto Joseph, and said, Give us bread: for why should we die in thy presence? for the money faileth.

Gen|47|16| And Joseph said, Give your cattle; and I will give you for your cattle, if money fail.

Gen|47|17| And they brought their cattle unto Joseph: and Joseph gave them bread in exchange for horses, and for the flocks, and for the cattle of the herds, and for the asses: and he fed them with bread for all their cattle for that year.

Gen|47|18| When that year was ended, they came unto him the second year, and said unto him, We will not hide it from my lord, how that our money is spent; my lord also hath our herds of cattle; there is not ought left in the sight of my lord, but our bodies, and our lands:

Gen|47|19| Wherefore shall we die before thine eyes, both we and our land? buy us and our land for bread, and we and our land will be servants unto Pharaoh: and give us seed, that we may live, and not die, that the land be not desolate.

Gen|47|20| And Joseph bought all the land of Egypt for Pharaoh; for the Egyptians sold every man his field, because the famine prevailed over them: so the land became Pharaoh's.

Gen|47|21| And as for the people, he removed them to cities from one end of the borders of Egypt even to the other end thereof.

Gen|47|22| Only the land of the priests bought he not; for the priests had a portion assigned them of Pharaoh, and did eat their portion which Pharaoh gave them: wherefore they sold not their lands.

Gen|47|23| Then Joseph said unto the people, Behold, I have bought you this day and your land for Pharaoh: lo, here is seed for you, and ye shall sow the land.

Gen|47|24| And it shall come to pass in the increase, that ye shall give the fifth part unto Pharaoh, and four parts shall be your own, for seed of the field, and for your food, and for them of your households, and for food for your little ones.

Gen|47|25| And they said, Thou hast saved our lives: let us find grace in the sight of my lord, and we will be Pharaoh's servants.

Gen|47|26| And Joseph made it a law over the land of Egypt unto this day, that Pharaoh should have the fifth part, except the land of the priests only, which became not Pharaoh's.

Gen|47|27| And Israel dwelt in the land of Egypt, in the country of Goshen; and they had possessions therein, and grew, and multiplied exceedingly.

Gen|47|28| And Jacob lived in the land of Egypt seventeen years: so the whole age of Jacob was an hundred forty and seven years.

Gen|47|29| And the time drew nigh that Israel must die: and he called his son Joseph, and said unto him, If now I have found grace in thy sight, put, I pray thee, thy hand under my thigh, and deal kindly and truly with me; bury me not, I pray thee, in Egypt:

Gen|47|30| But I will lie with my fathers, and thou shalt carry me out of Egypt, and bury me in their buryingplace. And he said, I will do as thou hast said.

Gen|47|31| And he said, Swear unto me. And he sware unto him. And Israel bowed himself upon the bed's head.

Gen|48|1| And it came to pass after these things, that one told Joseph, Behold, thy father is sick: and he took with him his two sons, Manasseh and Ephraim.

Gen|48|2| And one told Jacob, and said, Behold, thy son Joseph cometh unto thee: and Israel strengthened himself, and sat upon the bed.

Gen|48|3| And Jacob said unto Joseph, God Almighty appeared unto me at Luz in the land of Canaan, and blessed me,

Gen|48|4| And said unto me, Behold, I will make thee fruitful, and multiply thee, and I will make of thee a multitude of people; and will give this land to thy seed after thee for an everlasting possession.

Gen|48|5| And now thy two sons, Ephraim and Manasseh, which were born unto thee in the land of Egypt before I came unto thee into Egypt, are mine; as Reuben and Simeon, they shall be mine.

Gen|48|6| And thy issue, which thou begettest after them, shall be thine, and shall be called after the name of their brethren in their inheritance.

Gen|48|7| And as for me, when I came from Padan, Rachel died by me in the land of Canaan in the way, when yet there was but a little way to come unto Ephrath: and I buried her there in the way of Ephrath; the same is Bethlehem.

Gen|48|8| And Israel beheld Joseph's sons, and said, Who are these?

Gen|48|9| And Joseph said unto his father, They are my sons, whom God hath given me in this place. And he said, Bring them, I pray thee, unto me, and I will bless them.

Gen|48|10| Now the eyes of Israel were dim for age, so that he could not see. And he brought them near unto him; and he kissed them, and embraced them.

Gen|48|11| And Israel said unto Joseph, I had not thought to see thy face: and, lo, God hath shewed me also thy seed.

Gen|48|12| And Joseph brought them out from between his knees, and he bowed himself with his face to the earth.

Gen|48|13| And Joseph took them both, Ephraim in his right hand toward Israel's left hand, and Manasseh in his left hand toward Israel's right hand, and brought them near unto him.

Gen|48|14| And Israel stretched out his right hand, and laid it upon Ephraim's head, who was the younger, and his left hand upon Manasseh's head, guiding his hands wittingly; for Manasseh was the firstborn.

Gen|48|15| And he blessed Joseph, and said, God, before whom my fathers Abraham and Isaac did walk, the God which fed me all my life long unto this day,

Gen|48|16| The Angel which redeemed me from all evil, bless the lads; and let my name be named on them, and the name of my fathers Abraham and Isaac; and let them grow into a multitude in the midst of the earth.

Gen|48|17| And when Joseph saw that his father laid his right hand upon the head of Ephraim, it displeased him: and he held up his father's hand, to remove it from Ephraim's head unto Manasseh's head.

Gen|48|18| And Joseph said unto his father, Not so, my father: for this is the firstborn; put thy right hand upon his head.

Gen|48|19| And his father refused, and said, I know it, my son, I know it: he also shall become a people, and he also shall be great: but truly his younger brother shall be greater than he, and his seed shall become a multitude of nations.

Gen|48|20| And he blessed them that day, saying, In thee shall Israel bless, saying, God make thee as Ephraim and as Manasseh: and he set Ephraim before Manasseh.

Gen|48|21| And Israel said unto Joseph, Behold, I die: but God shall be with you, and bring you again unto the land of your fathers.

Gen|48|22| Moreover I have given to thee one portion above thy brethren, which I took out of the hand of the Amorite with my sword and with my bow.

Gen|49|1| And Jacob called unto his sons, and said, Gather yourselves together, that I may tell you that which shall befall you in the last days.

Gen|49|2| Gather yourselves together, and hear, ye sons of Jacob; and hearken unto Israel your father.

Gen|49|3| Reuben, thou art my firstborn, my might, and the beginning of my strength, the excellency of dignity, and the excellency of power:

Gen|49|4| Unstable as water, thou shalt not excel; because thou wentest up to thy father's bed; then defiledst thou it: he went up to my couch.

Gen|49|5| Simeon and Levi are brethren; instruments of cruelty are in their habitations.

Gen|49|6| O my soul, come not thou into their secret; unto their assembly, mine honour, be not thou united: for in their anger they slew a man, and in their selfwill they digged down a wall.

Gen|49|7| Cursed be their anger, for it was fierce; and their wrath, for it was cruel: I will divide them in Jacob, and scatter them in Israel.

Gen|49|8| Judah, thou art he whom thy brethren shall praise: thy hand shall be in the neck of thine enemies; thy father's children shall bow down before thee.

Gen|49|9| Judah is a lion's whelp: from the prey, my son, thou art gone up: he stooped down, he couched as a lion, and as an old lion; who shall rouse him up?

Gen|49|10| The sceptre shall not depart from Judah, nor a lawgiver from between his feet, until Shiloh come; and unto him shall the gathering of the people be.

Gen|49|11| Binding his foal unto the vine, and his ass's colt unto the choice vine; he washed his garments in wine, and his clothes in the blood of grapes:

Gen|49|12| His eyes shall be red with wine, and his teeth white with milk.

Gen|49|13| Zebulun shall dwell at the haven of the sea; and he shall be for an haven of ships; and his border shall be unto Zidon.

Gen|49|14| Issachar is a strong ass couching down between two burdens:

Gen|49|15| And he saw that rest was good, and the land that it was pleasant; and bowed his shoulder to bear, and became a servant unto tribute.

Gen|49|16| Dan shall judge his people, as one of the tribes of Israel.

Gen|49|17| Dan shall be a serpent by the way, an adder in the path, that biteth the horse heels, so that his rider shall fall backward.

Gen|49|18| I have waited for thy salvation, O LORD.

Gen|49|19| Gad, a troop shall overcome him: but he shall overcome at the last.

Gen|49|20| Out of Asher his bread shall be fat, and he shall yield royal dainties.

Gen|49|21| Naphtali is a hind let loose: he giveth goodly words.

Gen|49|22| Joseph is a fruitful bough, even a fruitful bough by a well; whose branches run over the wall:

Gen|49|23| The archers have sorely grieved him, and shot at him, and hated him:

Gen|49|24| But his bow abode in strength, and the arms of his hands were made strong by the hands of the mighty God of Jacob; (from thence is the shepherd, the stone of Israel:)

Gen|49|25| Even by the God of thy father, who shall help thee; and by the Almighty, who shall bless thee with blessings of heaven above, blessings of the deep that lieth under, blessings of the breasts, and of the womb:

Gen|49|26| The blessings of thy father have prevailed above the blessings of my progenitors unto the utmost bound of the everlasting hills: they shall be on the head of Joseph, and on the crown of the head of him that was separate from his brethren.

Gen|49|27| Benjamin shall ravin as a wolf: in the morning he shall devour the prey, and at night he shall divide the spoil.

Gen|49|28| All these are the twelve tribes of Israel: and this is it that their father spake unto them, and blessed them; every one according to his blessing he blessed them.

Gen|49|29| And he charged them, and said unto them, I am to be gathered unto my people: bury me with my fathers in the cave that is in the field of Ephron the Hittite,

Gen|49|30| In the cave that is in the field of Machpelah, which is before Mamre, in the land of Canaan, which Abraham bought with the field of Ephron the Hittite for a possession of a buryingplace.

Gen|49|31| There they buried Abraham and Sarah his wife; there they buried Isaac and Rebekah his wife; and there I buried Leah.

Gen|49|32| The purchase of the field and of the cave that is therein was from the children of Heth.

Gen|49|33| And when Jacob had made an end of commanding his sons, he gathered up his feet into the bed, and yielded up the ghost, and was gathered unto his people.

Gen|50|1| And Joseph fell upon his father's face, and wept upon him, and kissed him.

Gen|50|2| And Joseph commanded his servants the physicians to embalm his father: and the physicians embalmed Israel.

Gen|50|3| And forty days were fulfilled for him; for so are fulfilled the days of those which are embalmed: and the Egyptians mourned for him threescore and ten days.

Gen|50|4| And when the days of his mourning were past, Joseph spake unto the house of Pharaoh, saying, If now I have found grace in your eyes, speak, I pray you, in the ears of Pharaoh, saying,

Gen|50|5| My father made me swear, saying, Lo, I die: in my grave which I have digged for me in the land of Canaan, there shalt thou bury me. Now therefore let me go up, I pray thee, and bury my father, and I will come again.

Gen|50|6| And Pharaoh said, Go up, and bury thy father, according as he made thee swear.

Gen|50|7| And Joseph went up to bury his father: and with him went up all the servants of Pharaoh, the elders of his house, and all the elders of the land of Egypt,

Gen|50|8| And all the house of Joseph, and his brethren, and his father's house: only their little ones, and their flocks, and their herds, they left in the land of Goshen.

Gen|50|9| And there went up with him both chariots and horsemen: and it was a very great company.

Gen|50|10| And they came to the threshingfloor of Atad, which is beyond Jordan, and there they mourned with a great and very sore lamentation: and he made a mourning for his father seven days.

Gen|50|11| And when the inhabitants of the land, the Canaanites, saw the mourning in the floor of Atad, they said, This is a grievous mourning to the Egyptians: wherefore the name of it was called Abelmizraim, which is beyond Jordan.

Gen|50|12| And his sons did unto him according as he commanded them:

Gen|50|13| For his sons carried him into the land of Canaan, and buried him in the cave of the field of Machpelah, which Abraham bought with the field for a possession of a buryingplace of Ephron the Hittite, before Mamre.

Gen|50|14| And Joseph returned into Egypt, he, and his brethren, and all that went up with him to bury his father, after he had buried his father.

Gen|50|15| And when Joseph's brethren saw that their father was dead, they said, Joseph will peradventure hate us, and will certainly requite us all the evil which we did unto him.

Gen|50|16| And they sent a messenger unto Joseph, saying, Thy father did command before he died, saying,

Gen|50|17| So shall ye say unto Joseph, Forgive, I pray thee now, the trespass of thy brethren, and their sin; for they did unto thee evil: and now, we pray thee, forgive the trespass of the servants of the God of thy father. And Joseph wept when they spake unto him.

Gen|50|18| And his brethren also went and fell down before his face; and they said, Behold, we be thy servants.

Gen|50|19| And Joseph said unto them, Fear not: for am I in the place of God?

Gen|50|20| But as for you, ye thought evil against me; but God meant it unto good, to bring to pass, as it is this day, to save much people alive.

Gen|50|21| Now therefore fear ye not: I will nourish you, and your little ones. And he comforted them, and spake kindly unto them.

Gen|50|22| And Joseph dwelt in Egypt, he, and his father's house: and Joseph lived an hundred and ten years.

Gen|50|23| And Joseph saw Ephraim's children of the third generation: the children also of Machir the son of Manasseh were brought up upon Joseph's knees.

Gen|50|24| And Joseph said unto his brethren, I die: and God will surely visit you, and bring you out of this land unto the land which he sware to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob.

Gen|50|25| And Joseph took an oath of the children of Israel, saying, God will surely visit you, and ye shall carry up my bones from hence.

Gen|50|26| So Joseph died, being an hundred and ten years old: and they embalmed him, and he was put in a coffin in Egypt.

Exo|1|1| Now these are the names of the children of Israel, which came into Egypt; every man and his household came with Jacob.

Exo|1|2| Reuben, Simeon, Levi, and Judah,

Exo|1|3| Issachar, Zebulun, and Benjamin,

Exo|1|4| Dan, and Naphtali, Gad, and Asher.

Exo|1|5| And all the souls that came out of the loins of Jacob were seventy souls: for Joseph was in Egypt already.

Exo|1|6| And Joseph died, and all his brethren, and all that generation.

Exo|1|7| And the children of Israel were fruitful, and increased abundantly, and multiplied, and waxed exceeding mighty; and the land was filled with them.

Exo|1|8| Now there arose up a new king over Egypt, which knew not Joseph.

Exo|1|9| And he said unto his people, Behold, the people of the children of Israel are more and mightier than we:

Exo|1|10| Come on, let us deal wisely with them; lest they multiply, and it come to pass, that, when there falleth out any war, they join also unto our enemies, and fight against us, and so get them up out of the land.

Exo|1|11| Therefore they did set over them taskmasters to afflict them with their burdens. And they built for Pharaoh treasure cities, Pithom and Raamses.

Exo|1|12| But the more they afflicted them, the more they multiplied and grew. And they were grieved because of the children of Israel.

Exo|1|13| And the Egyptians made the children of Israel to serve with rigour:

Exo|1|14| And they made their lives bitter with hard bondage, in morter, and in brick, and in all manner of service in the field: all their service, wherein they made them serve, was with rigour.

Exo|1|15| And the king of Egypt spake to the Hebrew midwives, of which the name of the one was Shiphrah, and the name of the other Puah:

Exo|1|16| And he said, When ye do the office of a midwife to the Hebrew women, and see them upon the stools; if it be a son, then ye shall kill him: but if it be a daughter, then she shall live.

Exo|1|17| But the midwives feared God, and did not as the king of Egypt commanded them, but saved the men children alive.

Exo|1|18| And the king of Egypt called for the midwives, and said unto them, Why have ye done this thing, and have saved the men children alive?

Exo|1|19| And the midwives said unto Pharaoh, Because the Hebrew women are not as the Egyptian women; for they are lively, and are delivered ere the midwives come in unto them.

Exo|1|20| Therefore God dealt well with the midwives: and the people multiplied, and waxed very mighty.

Exo|1|21| And it came to pass, because the midwives feared God, that he made them houses.

Exo|1|22| And Pharaoh charged all his people, saying, Every son that is born ye shall cast into the river, and every daughter ye shall save alive.

Exo|2|1| And there went a man of the house of Levi, and took to wife a daughter of Levi.

Exo|2|2| And the woman conceived, and bare a son: and when she saw him that he was a goodly child, she hid him three months.

Exo|2|3| And when she could not longer hide him, she took for him an ark of bulrushes, and daubed it with slime and with pitch, and put the child therein; and she laid it in the flags by the river's brink.

Exo|2|4| And his sister stood afar off, to wit what would be done to him.

Exo|2|5| And the daughter of Pharaoh came down to wash herself at the river; and her maidens walked along by the river's side; and when she saw the ark among the flags, she sent her maid to fetch it.

Exo|2|6| And when she had opened it, she saw the child: and, behold, the babe wept. And she had compassion on him, and said, This is one of the Hebrews' children.

Exo|2|7| Then said his sister to Pharaoh's daughter, Shall I go and call to thee a nurse of the Hebrew women, that she may nurse the child for thee?

Exo|2|8| And Pharaoh's daughter said to her, Go. And the maid went and called the child's mother.

Exo|2|9| And Pharaoh's daughter said unto her, Take this child away, and nurse it for me, and I will give thee thy wages. And the women took the child, and nursed it.

Exo|2|10| And the child grew, and she brought him unto Pharaoh's daughter, and he became her son. And she called his name Moses: and she said, Because I drew him out of the water.

Exo|2|11| And it came to pass in those days, when Moses was grown, that he went out unto his brethren, and looked on their burdens: and he spied an Egyptian smiting an Hebrew, one of his brethren.

Exo|2|12| And he looked this way and that way, and when he saw that there was no man, he slew the Egyptian, and hid him in the sand.

Exo|2|13| And when he went out the second day, behold, two men of the Hebrews strove together: and he said to him that did the wrong, Wherefore smitest thou thy fellow?

Exo|2|14| And he said, Who made thee a prince and a judge over us? intendest thou to kill me, as thou killedst the Egyptian? And Moses feared, and said, Surely this thing is known.

Exo|2|15| Now when Pharaoh heard this thing, he sought to slay Moses. But Moses fled from the face of Pharaoh, and dwelt in the land of Midian: and he sat down by a well.

Exo|2|16| Now the priest of Midian had seven daughters: and they came and drew water, and filled the troughs to water their father's flock.

Exo|2|17| And the shepherds came and drove them away: but Moses stood up and helped them, and watered their flock.

Exo|2|18| And when they came to Reuel their father, he said, How is it that ye are come so soon to day?

Exo|2|19| And they said, An Egyptian delivered us out of the hand of the shepherds, and also drew water enough for us, and watered the flock.

Exo|2|20| And he said unto his daughters, And where is he? why is it that ye have left the man? call him, that he may eat bread.

Exo|2|21| And Moses was content to dwell with the man: and he gave Moses Zipporah his daughter.

Exo|2|22| And she bare him a son, and he called his name Gershom: for he said, I have been a stranger in a strange land.

Exo|2|23| And it came to pass in process of time, that the king of Egypt died: and the children of Israel sighed by reason of the bondage, and they cried, and their cry came up unto God by reason of the bondage.

Exo|2|24| And God heard their groaning, and God remembered his covenant with Abraham, with Isaac, and with Jacob.

Exo|2|25| And God looked upon the children of Israel, and God had respect unto them.

Exo|3|1| Now Moses kept the flock of Jethro his father in law, the priest of Midian: and he led the flock to the backside of the desert, and came to the mountain of God, even to Horeb.

Exo|3|2| And the angel of the LORD appeared unto him in a flame of fire out of the midst of a bush: and he looked, and, behold, the bush burned with fire, and the bush was not consumed.

Exo|3|3| And Moses said, I will now turn aside, and see this great sight, why the bush is not burnt.

Exo|3|4| And when the LORD saw that he turned aside to see, God called unto him out of the midst of the bush, and said, Moses, Moses. And he said, Here am I.

Exo|3|5| And he said, Draw not nigh hither: put off thy shoes from off thy feet, for the place whereon thou standest is holy ground.

Exo|3|6| Moreover he said, I am the God of thy father, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob. And Moses hid his face; for he was afraid to look upon God.

Exo|3|7| And the LORD said, I have surely seen the affliction of my people which are in Egypt, and have heard their cry by reason of their taskmasters; for I know their sorrows;

Exo|3|8| And I am come down to deliver them out of the hand of the Egyptians, and to bring them up out of that land unto a good land and a large, unto a land flowing with milk and honey; unto the place of the Canaanites, and the Hittites, and the Amorites, and the Perizzites, and the Hivites, and the Jebusites.

Exo|3|9| Now therefore, behold, the cry of the children of Israel is come unto me: and I have also seen the oppression wherewith the Egyptians oppress them.

Exo|3|10| Come now therefore, and I will send thee unto Pharaoh, that thou mayest bring forth my people the children of Israel out of Egypt.

Exo|3|11| And Moses said unto God, Who am I, that I should go unto Pharaoh, and that I should bring forth the children of Israel out of Egypt?

Exo|3|12| And he said, Certainly I will be with thee; and this shall be a token unto thee, that I have sent thee: When thou hast brought forth the people out of Egypt, ye shall serve God upon this mountain.

Exo|3|13| And Moses said unto God, Behold, when I come unto the children of Israel, and shall say unto them, The God of your fathers hath sent me unto you; and they shall say to me, What is his name? what shall I say unto them?

Exo|3|14| And God said unto Moses, I AM THAT I AM: and he said, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I AM hath sent me unto you.

Exo|3|15| And God said moreover unto Moses, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, the LORD God of your fathers, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, hath sent me unto you: this is my name for ever, and this is my memorial unto all generations.

Exo|3|16| Go, and gather the elders of Israel together, and say unto them, The LORD God of your fathers, the God of Abraham, of Isaac, and of Jacob, appeared unto me, saying, I have surely visited you, and seen that which is done to you in Egypt:

Exo|3|17| And I have said, I will bring you up out of the affliction of Egypt unto the land of the Canaanites, and the Hittites, and the Amorites, and the Perizzites, and the Hivites, and the Jebusites, unto a land flowing with milk and honey.

Exo|3|18| And they shall hearken to thy voice: and thou shalt come, thou and the elders of Israel, unto the king of Egypt, and ye shall say unto him, The LORD God of the Hebrews hath met with us: and now let us go, we beseech thee, three days' journey into the wilderness, that we may sacrifice to the LORD our God.

Exo|3|19| And I am sure that the king of Egypt will not let you go, no, not by a mighty hand.

Exo|3|20| And I will stretch out my hand, and smite Egypt with all my wonders which I will do in the midst thereof: and after that he will let you go.

Exo|3|21| And I will give this people favour in the sight of the Egyptians: and it shall come to pass, that, when ye go, ye shall not go empty.

Exo|3|22| But every woman shall borrow of her neighbour, and of her that sojourneth in her house, jewels of silver, and jewels of gold, and raiment: and ye shall put them upon your sons, and upon your daughters; and ye shall spoil the Egyptians.

Exo|4|1| And Moses answered and said, But, behold, they will not believe me, nor hearken unto my voice: for they will say, The LORD hath not appeared unto thee.

Exo|4|2| And the LORD said unto him, What is that in thine hand? And he said, A rod.

Exo|4|3| And he said, Cast it on the ground. And he cast it on the ground, and it became a serpent; and Moses fled from before it.

Exo|4|4| And the LORD said unto Moses, Put forth thine hand, and take it by the tail. And he put forth his hand, and caught it, and it became a rod in his hand:

Exo|4|5| That they may believe that the LORD God of their fathers, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, hath appeared unto thee.

Exo|4|6| And the LORD said furthermore unto him, Put now thine hand into thy bosom. And he put his hand into his bosom: and when he took it out, behold, his hand was leprous as snow.

Exo|4|7| And he said, Put thine hand into thy bosom again. And he put his hand into his bosom again; and plucked it out of his bosom, and, behold, it was turned again as his other flesh.

Exo|4|8| And it shall come to pass, if they will not believe thee, neither hearken to the voice of the first sign, that they will believe the voice of the latter sign.

Exo|4|9| And it shall come to pass, if they will not believe also these two signs, neither hearken unto thy voice, that thou shalt take of the water of the river, and pour it upon the dry land: and the water which thou takest out of the river shall become blood upon the dry land.

Exo|4|10| And Moses said unto the LORD, O my LORD, I am not eloquent, neither heretofore, nor since thou hast spoken unto thy servant: but I am slow of speech, and of a slow tongue.

Exo|4|11| And the LORD said unto him, Who hath made man's mouth? or who maketh the dumb, or deaf, or the seeing, or the blind? have not I the LORD?

Exo|4|12| Now therefore go, and I will be with thy mouth, and teach thee what thou shalt say.

Exo|4|13| And he said, O my LORD, send, I pray thee, by the hand of him whom thou wilt send.

Exo|4|14| And the anger of the LORD was kindled against Moses, and he said, Is not Aaron the Levite thy brother? I know that he can speak well. And also, behold, he cometh forth to meet thee: and when he seeth thee, he will be glad in his heart.

Exo|4|15| And thou shalt speak unto him, and put words in his mouth: and I will be with thy mouth, and with his mouth, and will teach you what ye shall do.

Exo|4|16| And he shall be thy spokesman unto the people: and he shall be, even he shall be to thee instead of a mouth, and thou shalt be to him instead of God.

Exo|4|17| And thou shalt take this rod in thine hand, wherewith thou shalt do signs.

Exo|4|18| And Moses went and returned to Jethro his father in law, and said unto him, Let me go, I pray thee, and return unto my brethren which are in Egypt, and see whether they be yet alive. And Jethro said to Moses, Go in peace.

Exo|4|19| And the LORD said unto Moses in Midian, Go, return into Egypt: for all the men are dead which sought thy life.

Exo|4|20| And Moses took his wife and his sons, and set them upon an ass, and he returned to the land of Egypt: and Moses took the rod of God in his hand.

Exo|4|21| And the LORD said unto Moses, When thou goest to return into Egypt, see that thou do all those wonders before Pharaoh, which I have put in thine hand: but I will harden his heart, that he shall not let the people go.

Exo|4|22| And thou shalt say unto Pharaoh, Thus saith the LORD, Israel is my son, even my firstborn:

Exo|4|23| And I say unto thee, Let my son go, that he may serve me: and if thou refuse to let him go, behold, I will slay thy son, even thy firstborn.

Exo|4|24| And it came to pass by the way in the inn, that the LORD met him, and sought to kill him.

Exo|4|25| Then Zipporah took a sharp stone, and cut off the foreskin of her son, and cast it at his feet, and said, Surely a bloody husband art thou to me.

Exo|4|26| So he let him go: then she said, A bloody husband thou art, because of the circumcision.

Exo|4|27| And the LORD said to Aaron, Go into the wilderness to meet Moses. And he went, and met him in the mount of God, and kissed him.

Exo|4|28| And Moses told Aaron all the words of the LORD who had sent him, and all the signs which he had commanded him.

Exo|4|29| And Moses and Aaron went and gathered together all the elders of the children of Israel:

Exo|4|30| And Aaron spake all the words which the LORD had spoken unto Moses, and did the signs in the sight of the people.

Exo|4|31| And the people believed: and when they heard that the LORD had visited the children of Israel, and that he had looked upon their affliction, then they bowed their heads and worshipped.

Exo|5|1| And afterward Moses and Aaron went in, and told Pharaoh, Thus saith the LORD God of Israel, Let my people go, that they may hold a feast unto me in the wilderness.

Exo|5|2| And Pharaoh said, Who is the LORD, that I should obey his voice to let Israel go? I know not the LORD, neither will I let Israel go.

Exo|5|3| And they said, The God of the Hebrews hath met with us: let us go, we pray thee, three days' journey into the desert, and sacrifice unto the LORD our God; lest he fall upon us with pestilence, or with the sword.

Exo|5|4| And the king of Egypt said unto them, Wherefore do ye, Moses and Aaron, let the people from their works? get you unto your burdens.

Exo|5|5| And Pharaoh said, Behold, the people of the land now are many, and ye make them rest from their burdens.

Exo|5|6| And Pharaoh commanded the same day the taskmasters of the people, and their officers, saying,

Exo|5|7| Ye shall no more give the people straw to make brick, as heretofore: let them go and gather straw for themselves.

Exo|5|8| And the tale of the bricks, which they did make heretofore, ye shall lay upon them; ye shall not diminish ought thereof: for they be idle; therefore they cry, saying, Let us go and sacrifice to our God.

Exo|5|9| Let there more work be laid upon the men, that they may labour therein; and let them not regard vain words.

Exo|5|10| And the taskmasters of the people went out, and their officers, and they spake to the people, saying, Thus saith Pharaoh, I will not give you straw.

Exo|5|11| Go ye, get you straw where ye can find it: yet not ought of your work shall be diminished.

Exo|5|12| So the people were scattered abroad throughout all the land of Egypt to gather stubble instead of straw.

Exo|5|13| And the taskmasters hasted them, saying, Fulfil your works, your daily tasks, as when there was straw.

Exo|5|14| And the officers of the children of Israel, which Pharaoh's taskmasters had set over them, were beaten, and demanded, Wherefore have ye not fulfilled your task in making brick both yesterday and to day, as heretofore?

Exo|5|15| Then the officers of the children of Israel came and cried unto Pharaoh, saying, Wherefore dealest thou thus with thy servants?

Exo|5|16| There is no straw given unto thy servants, and they say to us, Make brick: and, behold, thy servants are beaten; but the fault is in thine own people.

Exo|5|17| But he said, Ye are idle, ye are idle: therefore ye say, Let us go and do sacrifice to the LORD.

Exo|5|18| Go therefore now, and work; for there shall no straw be given you, yet shall ye deliver the tale of bricks.

Exo|5|19| And the officers of the children of Israel did see that they were in evil case, after it was said, Ye shall not minish ought from your bricks of your daily task.

Exo|5|20| And they met Moses and Aaron, who stood in the way, as they came forth from Pharaoh:

Exo|5|21| And they said unto them, The LORD look upon you, and judge; because ye have made our savour to be abhorred in the eyes of Pharaoh, and in the eyes of his servants, to put a sword in their hand to slay us.

Exo|5|22| And Moses returned unto the LORD, and said, LORD, wherefore hast thou so evil entreated this people? why is it that thou hast sent me?

Exo|5|23| For since I came to Pharaoh to speak in thy name, he hath done evil to this people; neither hast thou delivered thy people at all.

Exo|6|1| Then the LORD said unto Moses, Now shalt thou see what I will do to Pharaoh: for with a strong hand shall he let them go, and with a strong hand shall he drive them out of his land.

Exo|6|2| And God spake unto Moses, and said unto him, I am the LORD:

Exo|6|3| And I appeared unto Abraham, unto Isaac, and unto Jacob, by the name of God Almighty, but by my name JEHOVAH was I not known to them.

Exo|6|4| And I have also established my covenant with them, to give them the land of Canaan, the land of their pilgrimage, wherein they were strangers.

Exo|6|5| And I have also heard the groaning of the children of Israel, whom the Egyptians keep in bondage; and I have remembered my covenant.

Exo|6|6| Wherefore say unto the children of Israel, I am the LORD, and I will bring you out from under the burdens of the Egyptians, and I will rid you out of their bondage, and I will redeem you with a stretched out arm, and with great judgments:

Exo|6|7| And I will take you to me for a people, and I will be to you a God: and ye shall know that I am the LORD your God, which bringeth you out from under the burdens of the Egyptians.

Exo|6|8| And I will bring you in unto the land, concerning the which I did swear to give it to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob; and I will give it you for an heritage: I am the LORD.

Exo|6|9| And Moses spake so unto the children of Israel: but they hearkened not unto Moses for anguish of spirit, and for cruel bondage.

Exo|6|10| And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

Exo|6|11| Go in, speak unto Pharaoh king of Egypt, that he let the children of Israel go out of his land.

Exo|6|12| And Moses spake before the LORD, saying, Behold, the children of Israel have not hearkened unto me; how then shall Pharaoh hear me, who am of uncircumcised lips?

Exo|6|13| And the LORD spake unto Moses and unto Aaron, and gave them a charge unto the children of Israel, and unto Pharaoh king of Egypt, to bring the children of Israel out of the land of Egypt.

Exo|6|14| These be the heads of their fathers' houses: The sons of Reuben the firstborn of Israel; Hanoch, and Pallu, Hezron, and Carmi: these be the families of Reuben.

Exo|6|15| And the sons of Simeon; Jemuel, and Jamin, and Ohad, and Jachin, and Zohar, and Shaul the son of a Canaanitish woman: these are the families of Simeon.

Exo|6|16| And these are the names of the sons of Levi according to their generations; Gershon, and Kohath, and Merari: and the years of the life of Levi were an hundred thirty and seven years.

Exo|6|17| The sons of Gershon; Libni, and Shimi, according to their families.

Exo|6|18| And the sons of Kohath; Amram, and Izhar, and Hebron, and Uzziel: and the years of the life of Kohath were an hundred thirty and three years.

Exo|6|19| And the sons of Merari; Mahali and Mushi: these are the families of Levi according to their generations.

Exo|6|20| And Amram took him Jochebed his father's sister to wife; and she bare him Aaron and Moses: and the years of the life of Amram were an hundred and thirty and seven years.

Exo|6|21| And the sons of Izhar; Korah, and Nepheg, and Zichri.

Exo|6|22| And the sons of Uzziel; Mishael, and Elzaphan, and Zithri.

Exo|6|23| And Aaron took him Elisheba, daughter of Amminadab, sister of Naashon, to wife; and she bare him Nadab, and Abihu, Eleazar, and Ithamar.

Exo|6|24| And the sons of Korah; Assir, and Elkanah, and Abiasaph: these are the families of the Korhites.

Exo|6|25| And Eleazar Aaron's son took him one of the daughters of Putiel to wife; and she bare him Phinehas: these are the heads of the fathers of the Levites according to their families.

Exo|6|26| These are that Aaron and Moses, to whom the LORD said, Bring out the children of Israel from the land of Egypt according to their armies.

Exo|6|27| These are they which spake to Pharaoh king of Egypt, to bring out the children of Israel from Egypt: these are that Moses and Aaron.

Exo|6|28| And it came to pass on the day when the LORD spake unto Moses in the land of Egypt,

Exo|6|29| That the LORD spake unto Moses, saying, I am the LORD: speak thou unto Pharaoh king of Egypt all that I say unto thee.

Exo|6|30| And Moses said before the LORD, Behold, I am of uncircumcised lips, and how shall Pharaoh hearken unto me?

Exo|7|1| And the LORD said unto Moses, See, I have made thee a god to Pharaoh: and Aaron thy brother shall be thy prophet.

Exo|7|2| Thou shalt speak all that I command thee: and Aaron thy brother shall speak unto Pharaoh, that he send the children of Israel out of his land.

Exo|7|3| And I will harden Pharaoh's heart, and multiply my signs and my wonders in the land of Egypt.

Exo|7|4| But Pharaoh shall not hearken unto you, that I may lay my hand upon Egypt, and bring forth mine armies, and my people the children of Israel, out of the land of Egypt by great judgments.

Exo|7|5| And the Egyptians shall know that I am the LORD, when I stretch forth mine hand upon Egypt, and bring out the children of Israel from among them.

Exo|7|6| And Moses and Aaron did as the LORD commanded them, so did they.

Exo|7|7| And Moses was fourscore years old, and Aaron fourscore and three years old, when they spake unto Pharaoh.

Exo|7|8| And the LORD spake unto Moses and unto Aaron, saying,

Exo|7|9| When Pharaoh shall speak unto you, saying, Shew a miracle for you: then thou shalt say unto Aaron, Take thy rod, and cast it before Pharaoh, and it shall become a serpent.

Exo|7|10| And Moses and Aaron went in unto Pharaoh, and they did so as the LORD had commanded: and Aaron cast down his rod before Pharaoh, and before his servants, and it became a serpent.

Exo|7|11| Then Pharaoh also called the wise men and the sorcerers: now the magicians of Egypt, they also did in like manner with their enchantments.

Exo|7|12| For they cast down every man his rod, and they became serpents: but Aaron's rod swallowed up their rods.

Exo|7|13| And he hardened Pharaoh's heart, that he hearkened not unto them; as the LORD had said.

Exo|7|14| And the LORD said unto Moses, Pharaoh's heart is hardened, he refuseth to let the people go.

Exo|7|15| Get thee unto Pharaoh in the morning; lo, he goeth out unto the water; and thou shalt stand by the river's brink against he come; and the rod which was turned to a serpent shalt thou take in thine hand.

Exo|7|16| And thou shalt say unto him, The LORD God of the Hebrews hath sent me unto thee, saying, Let my people go, that they may serve me in the wilderness: and, behold, hitherto thou wouldest not hear.

Exo|7|17| Thus saith the LORD, In this thou shalt know that I am the LORD: behold, I will smite with the rod that is in mine hand upon the waters which are in the river, and they shall be turned to blood.

Exo|7|18| And the fish that is in the river shall die, and the river shall stink; and the Egyptians shall lothe to drink of the water of the river.

Exo|7|19| And the LORD spake unto Moses, Say unto Aaron, Take thy rod, and stretch out thine hand upon the waters of Egypt, upon their streams, upon their rivers, and upon their ponds, and upon all their pools of water, that they may become blood; and that there may be blood throughout all the land of Egypt, both in vessels of wood, and in vessels of stone.

Exo|7|20| And Moses and Aaron did so, as the LORD commanded; and he lifted up the rod, and smote the waters that were in the river, in the sight of Pharaoh, and in the sight of his servants; and all the waters that were in the river were turned to blood.

Exo|7|21| And the fish that was in the river died; and the river stank, and the Egyptians could not drink of the water of the river; and there was blood throughout all the land of Egypt.

Exo|7|22| And the magicians of Egypt did so with their enchantments: and Pharaoh's heart was hardened, neither did he hearken unto them; as the LORD had said.

Exo|7|23| And Pharaoh turned and went into his house, neither did he set his heart to this also.

Exo|7|24| And all the Egyptians digged round about the river for water to drink; for they could not drink of the water of the river.

Exo|7|25| And seven days were fulfilled, after that the LORD had smitten the river.

Exo|8|1| And the LORD spake unto Moses, Go unto Pharaoh, and say unto him, Thus saith the LORD, Let my people go, that they may serve me.

Exo|8|2| And if thou refuse to let them go, behold, I will smite all thy borders with frogs:

Exo|8|3| And the river shall bring forth frogs abundantly, which shall go up and come into thine house, and into thy bedchamber, and upon thy bed, and into the house of thy servants, and upon thy people, and into thine ovens, and into thy kneadingtroughs:

Exo|8|4| And the frogs shall come up both on thee, and upon thy people, and upon all thy servants.

Exo|8|5| And the LORD spake unto Moses, Say unto Aaron, Stretch forth thine hand with thy rod over the streams, over the rivers, and over the ponds, and cause frogs to come up upon the land of Egypt.

Exo|8|6| And Aaron stretched out his hand over the waters of Egypt; and the frogs came up, and covered the land of Egypt.

Exo|8|7| And the magicians did so with their enchantments, and brought up frogs upon the land of Egypt.

Exo|8|8| Then Pharaoh called for Moses and Aaron, and said, Intreat the LORD, that he may take away the frogs from me, and from my people; and I will let the people go, that they may do sacrifice unto the LORD.

Exo|8|9| And Moses said unto Pharaoh, Glory over me: when shall I intreat for thee, and for thy servants, and for thy people, to destroy the frogs from thee and thy houses, that they may remain in the river only?

Exo|8|10| And he said, To morrow. And he said, Be it according to thy word: that thou mayest know that there is none like unto the LORD our God.

Exo|8|11| And the frogs shall depart from thee, and from thy houses, and from thy servants, and from thy people; they shall remain in the river only.

Exo|8|12| And Moses and Aaron went out from Pharaoh: and Moses cried unto the LORD because of the frogs which he had brought against Pharaoh.

Exo|8|13| And the LORD did according to the word of Moses; and the frogs died out of the houses, out of the villages, and out of the fields.

Exo|8|14| And they gathered them together upon heaps: and the land stank.

Exo|8|15| But when Pharaoh saw that there was respite, he hardened his heart, and hearkened not unto them; as the LORD had said.

Exo|8|16| And the LORD said unto Moses, Say unto Aaron, Stretch out thy rod, and smite the dust of the land, that it may become lice throughout all the land of Egypt.

Exo|8|17| And they did so; for Aaron stretched out his hand with his rod, and smote the dust of the earth, and it became lice in man, and in beast; all the dust of the land became lice throughout all the land of Egypt.

Exo|8|18| And the magicians did so with their enchantments to bring forth lice, but they could not: so there were lice upon man, and upon beast.

Exo|8|19| Then the magicians said unto Pharaoh, This is the finger of God: and Pharaoh's heart was hardened, and he hearkened not unto them; as the LORD had said.

Exo|8|20| And the LORD said unto Moses, Rise up early in the morning, and stand before Pharaoh; lo, he cometh forth to the water; and say unto him, Thus saith the LORD, Let my people go, that they may serve me.

Exo|8|21| Else, if thou wilt not let my people go, behold, I will send swarms of flies upon thee, and upon thy servants, and upon thy people, and into thy houses: and the houses of the Egyptians shall be full of swarms of flies, and also the ground whereon they are.

Exo|8|22| And I will sever in that day the land of Goshen, in which my people dwell, that no swarms of flies shall be there; to the end thou mayest know that I am the LORD in the midst of the earth.

Exo|8|23| And I will put a division between my people and thy people: to morrow shall this sign be.

Exo|8|24| And the LORD did so; and there came a grievous swarm of flies into the house of Pharaoh, and into his servants' houses, and into all the land of Egypt: the land was corrupted by reason of the swarm of flies.

Exo|8|25| And Pharaoh called for Moses and for Aaron, and said, Go ye, sacrifice to your God in the land.

Exo|8|26| And Moses said, It is not meet so to do; for we shall sacrifice the abomination of the Egyptians to the LORD our God: lo, shall we sacrifice the abomination of the Egyptians before their eyes, and will they not stone us?

Exo|8|27| We will go three days' journey into the wilderness, and sacrifice to the LORD our God, as he shall command us.

Exo|8|28| And Pharaoh said, I will let you go, that ye may sacrifice to the LORD your God in the wilderness; only ye shall not go very far away: intreat for me.

Exo|8|29| And Moses said, Behold, I go out from thee, and I will intreat the LORD that the swarms of flies may depart from Pharaoh, from his servants, and from his people, to morrow: but let not Pharaoh deal deceitfully any more in not letting the people go to sacrifice to the LORD.

Exo|8|30| And Moses went out from Pharaoh, and intreated the LORD.

Exo|8|31| And the LORD did according to the word of Moses; and he removed the swarms of flies from Pharaoh, from his servants, and from his people; there remained not one.

Exo|8|32| And Pharaoh hardened his heart at this time also, neither would he let the people go.

Exo|9|1| Then the LORD said unto Moses, Go in unto Pharaoh, and tell him, Thus saith the LORD God of the Hebrews, Let my people go, that they may serve me.

Exo|9|2| For if thou refuse to let them go, and wilt hold them still,

Exo|9|3| Behold, the hand of the LORD is upon thy cattle which is in the field, upon the horses, upon the asses, upon the camels, upon the oxen, and upon the sheep: there shall be a very grievous murrain.

Exo|9|4| And the LORD shall sever between the cattle of Israel and the cattle of Egypt: and there shall nothing die of all that is the children's of Israel.

Exo|9|5| And the LORD appointed a set time, saying, To morrow the LORD shall do this thing in the land.

Exo|9|6| And the LORD did that thing on the morrow, and all the cattle of Egypt died: but of the cattle of the children of Israel died not one.

Exo|9|7| And Pharaoh sent, and, behold, there was not one of the cattle of the Israelites dead. And the heart of Pharaoh was hardened, and he did not let the people go.

Exo|9|8| And the LORD said unto Moses and unto Aaron, Take to you handfuls of ashes of the furnace, and let Moses sprinkle it toward the heaven in the sight of Pharaoh.

Exo|9|9| And it shall become small dust in all the land of Egypt, and shall be a boil breaking forth with blains upon man, and upon beast, throughout all the land of Egypt.

Exo|9|10| And they took ashes of the furnace, and stood before Pharaoh; and Moses sprinkled it up toward heaven; and it became a boil breaking forth with blains upon man, and upon beast.

Exo|9|11| And the magicians could not stand before Moses because of the boils; for the boil was upon the magicians, and upon all the Egyptians.

Exo|9|12| And the LORD hardened the heart of Pharaoh, and he hearkened not unto them; as the LORD had spoken unto Moses.

Exo|9|13| And the LORD said unto Moses, Rise up early in the morning, and stand before Pharaoh, and say unto him, Thus saith the LORD God of the Hebrews, Let my people go, that they may serve me.

Exo|9|14| For I will at this time send all my plagues upon thine heart, and upon thy servants, and upon thy people; that thou mayest know that there is none like me in all the earth.

Exo|9|15| For now I will stretch out my hand, that I may smite thee and thy people with pestilence; and thou shalt be cut off from the earth.

Exo|9|16| And in very deed for this cause have I raised thee up, for to shew in thee my power; and that my name may be declared throughout all the earth.

Exo|9|17| As yet exaltest thou thyself against my people, that thou wilt not let them go?

Exo|9|18| Behold, to morrow about this time I will cause it to rain a very grievous hail, such as hath not been in Egypt since the foundation thereof even until now.

Exo|9|19| Send therefore now, and gather thy cattle, and all that thou hast in the field; for upon every man and beast which shall be found in the field, and shall not be brought home, the hail shall come down upon them, and they shall die.

Exo|9|20| He that feared the word of the LORD among the servants of Pharaoh made his servants and his cattle flee into the houses:

Exo|9|21| And he that regarded not the word of the LORD left his servants and his cattle in the field.

Exo|9|22| And the LORD said unto Moses, Stretch forth thine hand toward heaven, that there may be hail in all the land of Egypt, upon man, and upon beast, and upon every herb of the field, throughout the land of Egypt.

Exo|9|23| And Moses stretched forth his rod toward heaven: and the LORD sent thunder and hail, and the fire ran along upon the ground; and the LORD rained hail upon the land of Egypt.

Exo|9|24| So there was hail, and fire mingled with the hail, very grievous, such as there was none like it in all the land of Egypt since it became a nation.

Exo|9|25| And the hail smote throughout all the land of Egypt all that was in the field, both man and beast; and the hail smote every herb of the field, and brake every tree of the field.

Exo|9|26| Only in the land of Goshen, where the children of Israel were, was there no hail.

Exo|9|27| And Pharaoh sent, and called for Moses and Aaron, and said unto them, I have sinned this time: the LORD is righteous, and I and my people are wicked.

Exo|9|28| Intreat the LORD (for it is enough) that there be no more mighty thunderings and hail; and I will let you go, and ye shall stay no longer.

Exo|9|29| And Moses said unto him, As soon as I am gone out of the city, I will spread abroad my hands unto the LORD; and the thunder shall cease, neither shall there be any more hail; that thou mayest know how that the earth is the LORD's.

Exo|9|30| But as for thee and thy servants, I know that ye will not yet fear the LORD God.

Exo|9|31| And the flax and the barley was smitten: for the barley was in the ear, and the flax was bolled.

Exo|9|32| But the wheat and the rie were not smitten: for they were not grown up.

Exo|9|33| And Moses went out of the city from Pharaoh, and spread abroad his hands unto the LORD: and the thunders and hail ceased, and the rain was not poured upon the earth.

Exo|9|34| And when Pharaoh saw that the rain and the hail and the thunders were ceased, he sinned yet more, and hardened his heart, he and his servants.

Exo|9|35| And the heart of Pharaoh was hardened, neither would he let the children of Israel go; as the LORD had spoken by Moses.

Exo|10|1| And the LORD said unto Moses, Go in unto Pharaoh: for I have hardened his heart, and the heart of his servants, that I might shew these my signs before him:

Exo|10|2| And that thou mayest tell in the ears of thy son, and of thy son's son, what things I have wrought in Egypt, and my signs which I have done among them; that ye may know how that I am the LORD.

Exo|10|3| And Moses and Aaron came in unto Pharaoh, and said unto him, Thus saith the LORD God of the Hebrews, How long wilt thou refuse to humble thyself before me? let my people go, that they may serve me.

Exo|10|4| Else, if thou refuse to let my people go, behold, to morrow will I bring the locusts into thy coast:

Exo|10|5| And they shall cover the face of the earth, that one cannot be able to see the earth: and they shall eat the residue of that which is escaped, which remaineth unto you from the hail, and shall eat every tree which groweth for you out of the field:

Exo|10|6| And they shall fill thy houses, and the houses of all thy servants, and the houses of all the Egyptians; which neither thy fathers, nor thy fathers' fathers have seen, since the day that they were upon the earth unto this day. And he turned himself, and went out from Pharaoh.

Exo|10|7| And Pharaoh's servants said unto him, How long shall this man be a snare unto us? let the men go, that they may serve the LORD their God: knowest thou not yet that Egypt is destroyed?

Exo|10|8| And Moses and Aaron were brought again unto Pharaoh: and he said unto them, Go, serve the LORD your God: but who are they that shall go?

Exo|10|9| And Moses said, We will go with our young and with our old, with our sons and with our daughters, with our flocks and with our herds will we go; for we must hold a feast unto the LORD.

Exo|10|10| And he said unto them, Let the LORD be so with you, as I will let you go, and your little ones: look to it; for evil is before you.

Exo|10|11| Not so: go now ye that are men, and serve the LORD; for that ye did desire. And they were driven out from Pharaoh's presence.

Exo|10|12| And the LORD said unto Moses, Stretch out thine hand over the land of Egypt for the locusts, that they may come up upon the land of Egypt, and eat every herb of the land, even all that the hail hath left.

Exo|10|13| And Moses stretched forth his rod over the land of Egypt, and the LORD brought an east wind upon the land all that day, and all that night; and when it was morning, the east wind brought the locusts.

Exo|10|14| And the locust went up over all the land of Egypt, and rested in all the coasts of Egypt: very grievous were they; before them there were no such locusts as they, neither after them shall be such.

Exo|10|15| For they covered the face of the whole earth, so that the land was darkened; and they did eat every herb of the land, and all the fruit of the trees which the hail had left: and there remained not any green thing in the trees, or in the herbs of the field, through all the land of Egypt.

Exo|10|16| Then Pharaoh called for Moses and Aaron in haste; and he said, I have sinned against the LORD your God, and against you.

Exo|10|17| Now therefore forgive, I pray thee, my sin only this once, and intreat the LORD your God, that he may take away from me this death only.

Exo|10|18| And he went out from Pharaoh, and intreated the LORD.

Exo|10|19| And the LORD turned a mighty strong west wind, which took away the locusts, and cast them into the Red sea; there remained not one locust in all the coasts of Egypt.

Exo|10|20| But the LORD hardened Pharaoh's heart, so that he would not let the children of Israel go.

Exo|10|21| And the LORD said unto Moses, Stretch out thine hand toward heaven, that there may be darkness over the land of Egypt, even darkness which may be felt.

Exo|10|22| And Moses stretched forth his hand toward heaven; and there was a thick darkness in all the land of Egypt three days:

Exo|10|23| They saw not one another, neither rose any from his place for three days: but all the children of Israel had light in their dwellings.

Exo|10|24| And Pharaoh called unto Moses, and said, Go ye, serve the LORD; only let your flocks and your herds be stayed: let your little ones also go with you.

Exo|10|25| And Moses said, Thou must give us also sacrifices and burnt offerings, that we may sacrifice unto the LORD our God.

Exo|10|26| Our cattle also shall go with us; there shall not an hoof be left behind; for thereof must we take to serve the LORD our God; and we know not with what we must serve the LORD, until we come thither.

Exo|10|27| But the LORD hardened Pharaoh's heart, and he would not let them go.

Exo|10|28| And Pharaoh said unto him, Get thee from me, take heed to thyself, see my face no more; for in that day thou seest my face thou shalt die.

Exo|10|29| And Moses said, Thou hast spoken well, I will see thy face again no more.

Exo|11|1| And the LORD said unto Moses, Yet will I bring one plague more upon Pharaoh, and upon Egypt; afterwards he will let you go hence: when he shall let you go, he shall surely thrust you out hence altogether.

Exo|11|2| Speak now in the ears of the people, and let every man borrow of his neighbour, and every woman of her neighbour, jewels of silver and jewels of gold.

Exo|11|3| And the LORD gave the people favour in the sight of the Egyptians. Moreover the man Moses was very great in the land of Egypt, in the sight of Pharaoh's servants, and in the sight of the people.

Exo|11|4| And Moses said, Thus saith the LORD, About midnight will I go out into the midst of Egypt:

Exo|11|5| And all the firstborn in the land of Egypt shall die, from the first born of Pharaoh that sitteth upon his throne, even unto the firstborn of the maidservant that is behind the mill; and all the firstborn of beasts.

Exo|11|6| And there shall be a great cry throughout all the land of Egypt, such as there was none like it, nor shall be like it any more.

Exo|11|7| But against any of the children of Israel shall not a dog move his tongue, against man or beast: that ye may know how that the LORD doth put a difference between the Egyptians and Israel.

Exo|11|8| And all these thy servants shall come down unto me, and bow down themselves unto me, saying, Get thee out, and all the people that follow thee: and after that I will go out. And he went out from Pharaoh in a great anger.

Exo|11|9| And the LORD said unto Moses, Pharaoh shall not hearken unto you; that my wonders may be multiplied in the land of Egypt.

Exo|11|10| And Moses and Aaron did all these wonders before Pharaoh: and the LORD hardened Pharaoh's heart, so that he would not let the children of Israel go out of his land.

Exo|12|1| And the LORD spake unto Moses and Aaron in the land of Egypt saying,

Exo|12|2| This month shall be unto you the beginning of months: it shall be the first month of the year to you.

Exo|12|3| Speak ye unto all the congregation of Israel, saying, In the tenth day of this month they shall take to them every man a lamb, according to the house of their fathers, a lamb for an house:

Exo|12|4| And if the household be too little for the lamb, let him and his neighbour next unto his house take it according to the number of the souls; every man according to his eating shall make your count for the lamb.

Exo|12|5| Your lamb shall be without blemish, a male of the first year: ye shall take it out from the sheep, or from the goats:

Exo|12|6| And ye shall keep it up until the fourteenth day of the same month: and the whole assembly of the congregation of Israel shall kill it in the evening.

Exo|12|7| And they shall take of the blood, and strike it on the two side posts and on the upper door post of the houses, wherein they shall eat it.

Exo|12|8| And they shall eat the flesh in that night, roast with fire, and unleavened bread; and with bitter herbs they shall eat it.

Exo|12|9| Eat not of it raw, nor sodden at all with water, but roast with fire; his head with his legs, and with the purtenance thereof.

Exo|12|10| And ye shall let nothing of it remain until the morning; and that which remaineth of it until the morning ye shall burn with fire.

Exo|12|11| And thus shall ye eat it; with your loins girded, your shoes on your feet, and your staff in your hand; and ye shall eat it in haste: it is the LORD's passover.

Exo|12|12| For I will pass through the land of Egypt this night, and will smite all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, both man and beast; and against all the gods of Egypt I will execute judgment: I am the LORD.

Exo|12|13| And the blood shall be to you for a token upon the houses where ye are: and when I see the blood, I will pass over you, and the plague shall not be upon you to destroy you, when I smite the land of Egypt.

Exo|12|14| And this day shall be unto you for a memorial; and ye shall keep it a feast to the LORD throughout your generations; ye shall keep it a feast by an ordinance for ever.

Exo|12|15| Seven days shall ye eat unleavened bread; even the first day ye shall put away leaven out of your houses: for whosoever eateth leavened bread from the first day until the seventh day, that soul shall be cut off from Israel.

Exo|12|16| And in the first day there shall be an holy convocation, and in the seventh day there shall be an holy convocation to you; no manner of work shall be done in them, save that which every man must eat, that only may be done of you.

Exo|12|17| And ye shall observe the feast of unleavened bread; for in this selfsame day have I brought your armies out of the land of Egypt: therefore shall ye observe this day in your generations by an ordinance for ever.

Exo|12|18| In the first month, on the fourteenth day of the month at even, ye shall eat unleavened bread, until the one and twentieth day of the month at even.

Exo|12|19| Seven days shall there be no leaven found in your houses: for whosoever eateth that which is leavened, even that soul shall be cut off from the congregation of Israel, whether he be a stranger, or born in the land.

Exo|12|20| Ye shall eat nothing leavened; in all your habitations shall ye eat unleavened bread.

Exo|12|21| Then Moses called for all the elders of Israel, and said unto them, Draw out and take you a lamb according to your families, and kill the passover.

Exo|12|22| And ye shall take a bunch of hyssop, and dip it in the blood that is in the bason, and strike the lintel and the two side posts with the blood that is in the bason; and none of you shall go out at the door of his house until the morning.

Exo|12|23| For the LORD will pass through to smite the Egyptians; and when he seeth the blood upon the lintel, and on the two side posts, the LORD will pass over the door, and will not suffer the destroyer to come in unto your houses to smite you.

Exo|12|24| And ye shall observe this thing for an ordinance to thee and to thy sons for ever.

Exo|12|25| And it shall come to pass, when ye be come to the land which the LORD will give you, according as he hath promised, that ye shall keep this service.

Exo|12|26| And it shall come to pass, when your children shall say unto you, What mean ye by this service?

Exo|12|27| That ye shall say, It is the sacrifice of the LORD's passover, who passed over the houses of the children of Israel in Egypt, when he smote the Egyptians, and delivered our houses. And the people bowed the head and worshipped.

Exo|12|28| And the children of Israel went away, and did as the LORD had commanded Moses and Aaron, so did they.

Exo|12|29| And it came to pass, that at midnight the LORD smote all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, from the firstborn of Pharaoh that sat on his throne unto the firstborn of the captive that was in the dungeon; and all the firstborn of cattle.

Exo|12|30| And Pharaoh rose up in the night, he, and all his servants, and all the Egyptians; and there was a great cry in Egypt; for there was not a house where there was not one dead.

Exo|12|31| And he called for Moses and Aaron by night, and said, Rise up, and get you forth from among my people, both ye and the children of Israel; and go, serve the LORD, as ye have said.

Exo|12|32| Also take your flocks and your herds, as ye have said, and be gone; and bless me also.

Exo|12|33| And the Egyptians were urgent upon the people, that they might send them out of the land in haste; for they said, We be all dead men.

Exo|12|34| And the people took their dough before it was leavened, their kneadingtroughs being bound up in their clothes upon their shoulders.

Exo|12|35| And the children of Israel did according to the word of Moses; and they borrowed of the Egyptians jewels of silver, and jewels of gold, and raiment:

Exo|12|36| And the LORD gave the people favour in the sight of the Egyptians, so that they lent unto them such things as they required. And they spoiled the Egyptians.

Exo|12|37| And the children of Israel journeyed from Rameses to Succoth, about six hundred thousand on foot that were men, beside children.

Exo|12|38| And a mixed multitude went up also with them; and flocks, and herds, even very much cattle.

Exo|12|39| And they baked unleavened cakes of the dough which they brought forth out of Egypt, for it was not leavened; because they were thrust out of Egypt, and could not tarry, neither had they prepared for themselves any victual.

Exo|12|40| Now the sojourning of the children of Israel, who dwelt in Egypt, was four hundred and thirty years.

Exo|12|41| And it came to pass at the end of the four hundred and thirty years, even the selfsame day it came to pass, that all the hosts of the LORD went out from the land of Egypt.

Exo|12|42| It is a night to be much observed unto the LORD for bringing them out from the land of Egypt: this is that night of the LORD to be observed of all the children of Israel in their generations.

Exo|12|43| And the LORD said unto Moses and Aaron, This is the ordinance of the passover: There shall no stranger eat thereof:

Exo|12|44| But every man's servant that is bought for money, when thou hast circumcised him, then shall he eat thereof.

Exo|12|45| A foreigner and an hired servant shall not eat thereof.

Exo|12|46| In one house shall it be eaten; thou shalt not carry forth ought of the flesh abroad out of the house; neither shall ye break a bone thereof.

Exo|12|47| All the congregation of Israel shall keep it.

Exo|12|48| And when a stranger shall sojourn with thee, and will keep the passover to the LORD, let all his males be circumcised, and then let him come near and keep it; and he shall be as one that is born in the land: for no uncircumcised person shall eat thereof.

Exo|12|49| One law shall be to him that is homeborn, and unto the stranger that sojourneth among you.

Exo|12|50| Thus did all the children of Israel; as the LORD commanded Moses and Aaron, so did they.

Exo|12|51| And it came to pass the selfsame day, that the LORD did bring the children of Israel out of the land of Egypt by their armies.

Exo|13|1| And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

Exo|13|2| Sanctify unto me all the firstborn, whatsoever openeth the womb among the children of Israel, both of man and of beast: it is mine.

Exo|13|3| And Moses said unto the people, Remember this day, in which ye came out from Egypt, out of the house of bondage; for by strength of hand the LORD brought you out from this place: there shall no leavened bread be eaten.

Exo|13|4| This day came ye out in the month Abib.

Exo|13|5| And it shall be when the LORD shall bring thee into the land of the Canaanites, and the Hittites, and the Amorites, and the Hivites, and the Jebusites, which he sware unto thy fathers to give thee, a land flowing with milk and honey, that thou shalt keep this service in this month.

Exo|13|6| Seven days thou shalt eat unleavened bread, and in the seventh day shall be a feast to the LORD.

Exo|13|7| Unleavened bread shall be eaten seven days; and there shall no leavened bread be seen with thee, neither shall there be leaven seen with thee in all thy quarters.

Exo|13|8| And thou shalt shew thy son in that day, saying, This is done because of that which the LORD did unto me when I came forth out of Egypt.

Exo|13|9| And it shall be for a sign unto thee upon thine hand, and for a memorial between thine eyes, that the LORD's law may be in thy mouth: for with a strong hand hath the LORD brought thee out of Egypt.

Exo|13|10| Thou shalt therefore keep this ordinance in his season from year to year.

Exo|13|11| And it shall be when the LORD shall bring thee into the land of the Canaanites, as he sware unto thee and to thy fathers, and shall give it thee,

Exo|13|12| That thou shalt set apart unto the LORD all that openeth the matrix, and every firstling that cometh of a beast which thou hast; the males shall be the LORD's.

Exo|13|13| And every firstling of an ass thou shalt redeem with a lamb; and if thou wilt not redeem it, then thou shalt break his neck: and all the firstborn of man among thy children shalt thou redeem.

Exo|13|14| And it shall be when thy son asketh thee in time to come, saying, What is this? that thou shalt say unto him, By strength of hand the LORD brought us out from Egypt, from the house of bondage:

Exo|13|15| And it came to pass, when Pharaoh would hardly let us go, that the LORD slew all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, both the firstborn of man, and the firstborn of beast: therefore I sacrifice to the LORD all that openeth the matrix, being males; but all the firstborn of my children I redeem.

Exo|13|16| And it shall be for a token upon thine hand, and for frontlets between thine eyes: for by strength of hand the LORD brought us forth out of Egypt.

Exo|13|17| And it came to pass, when Pharaoh had let the people go, that God led them not through the way of the land of the Philistines, although that was near; for God said, Lest peradventure the people repent when they see war, and they return to Egypt:

Exo|13|18| But God led the people about, through the way of the wilderness of the Red sea: and the children of Israel went up harnessed out of the land of Egypt.

Exo|13|19| And Moses took the bones of Joseph with him: for he had straitly sworn the children of Israel, saying, God will surely visit you; and ye shall carry up my bones away hence with you.

Exo|13|20| And they took their journey from Succoth, and encamped in Etham, in the edge of the wilderness.

Exo|13|21| And the LORD went before them by day in a pillar of a cloud, to lead them the way; and by night in a pillar of fire, to give them light; to go by day and night:

Exo|13|22| He took not away the pillar of the cloud by day, nor the pillar of fire by night, from before the people.

Exo|14|1| And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

Exo|14|2| Speak unto the children of Israel, that they turn and encamp before Pihahiroth, between Migdol and the sea, over against Baalzephon: before it shall ye encamp by the sea.

Exo|14|3| For Pharaoh will say of the children of Israel, They are entangled in the land, the wilderness hath shut them in.

Exo|14|4| And I will harden Pharaoh's heart, that he shall follow after them; and I will be honoured upon Pharaoh, and upon all his host; that the Egyptians may know that I am the LORD. And they did so.

Exo|14|5| And it was told the king of Egypt that the people fled: and the heart of Pharaoh and of his servants was turned against the people, and they said, Why have we done this, that we have let Israel go from serving us?

Exo|14|6| And he made ready his chariot, and took his people with him:

Exo|14|7| And he took six hundred chosen chariots, and all the chariots of Egypt, and captains over every one of them.

Exo|14|8| And the LORD hardened the heart of Pharaoh king of Egypt, and he pursued after the children of Israel: and the children of Israel went out with an high hand.

Exo|14|9| But the Egyptians pursued after them, all the horses and chariots of Pharaoh, and his horsemen, and his army, and overtook them encamping by the sea, beside Pihahiroth, before Baalzephon.

Exo|14|10| And when Pharaoh drew nigh, the children of Israel lifted up their eyes, and, behold, the Egyptians marched after them; and they were sore afraid: and the children of Israel cried out unto the LORD.

Exo|14|11| And they said unto Moses, Because there were no graves in Egypt, hast thou taken us away to die in the wilderness? wherefore hast thou dealt thus with us, to carry us forth out of Egypt?

Exo|14|12| Is not this the word that we did tell thee in Egypt, saying, Let us alone, that we may serve the Egyptians? For it had been better for us to serve the Egyptians, than that we should die in the wilderness.

Exo|14|13| And Moses said unto the people, Fear ye not, stand still, and see the salvation of the LORD, which he will shew to you to day: for the Egyptians whom ye have seen to day, ye shall see them again no more for ever.

Exo|14|14| The LORD shall fight for you, and ye shall hold your peace.

Exo|14|15| And the LORD said unto Moses, Wherefore criest thou unto me? speak unto the children of Israel, that they go forward:

Exo|14|16| But lift thou up thy rod, and stretch out thine hand over the sea, and divide it: and the children of Israel shall go on dry ground through the midst of the sea.

Exo|14|17| And I, behold, I will harden the hearts of the Egyptians, and they shall follow them: and I will get me honour upon Pharaoh, and upon all his host, upon his chariots, and upon his horsemen.

Exo|14|18| And the Egyptians shall know that I am the LORD, when I have gotten me honour upon Pharaoh, upon his chariots, and upon his horsemen.

Exo|14|19| And the angel of God, which went before the camp of Israel, removed and went behind them; and the pillar of the cloud went from before their face, and stood behind them:

Exo|14|20| And it came between the camp of the Egyptians and the camp of Israel; and it was a cloud and darkness to them, but it gave light by night to these: so that the one came not near the other all the night.

Exo|14|21| And Moses stretched out his hand over the sea; and the LORD caused the sea to go back by a strong east wind all that night, and made the sea dry land, and the waters were divided.

Exo|14|22| And the children of Israel went into the midst of the sea upon the dry ground: and the waters were a wall unto them on their right hand, and on their left.

Exo|14|23| And the Egyptians pursued, and went in after them to the midst of the sea, even all Pharaoh's horses, his chariots, and his horsemen.

Exo|14|24| And it came to pass, that in the morning watch the LORD looked unto the host of the Egyptians through the pillar of fire and of the cloud, and troubled the host of the Egyptians,

Exo|14|25| And took off their chariot wheels, that they drave them heavily: so that the Egyptians said, Let us flee from the face of Israel; for the LORD fighteth for them against the Egyptians.

Exo|14|26| And the LORD said unto Moses, Stretch out thine hand over the sea, that the waters may come again upon the Egyptians, upon their chariots, and upon their horsemen.

Exo|14|27| And Moses stretched forth his hand over the sea, and the sea returned to his strength when the morning appeared; and the Egyptians fled against it; and the LORD overthrew the Egyptians in the midst of the sea.

Exo|14|28| And the waters returned, and covered the chariots, and the horsemen, and all the host of Pharaoh that came into the sea after them; there remained not so much as one of them.

Exo|14|29| But the children of Israel walked upon dry land in the midst of the sea; and the waters were a wall unto them on their right hand, and on their left.

Exo|14|30| Thus the LORD saved Israel that day out of the hand of the Egyptians; and Israel saw the Egyptians dead upon the sea shore.

Exo|14|31| And Israel saw that great work which the LORD did upon the Egyptians: and the people feared the LORD, and believed the LORD, and his servant Moses.

Exo|15|1| Then sang Moses and the children of Israel this song unto the LORD, and spake, saying, I will sing unto the LORD, for he hath triumphed gloriously: the horse and his rider hath he thrown into the sea.

Exo|15|2| The LORD is my strength and song, and he is become my salvation: he is my God, and I will prepare him an habitation; my father's God, and I will exalt him.

Exo|15|3| The LORD is a man of war: the LORD is his name.

Exo|15|4| Pharaoh's chariots and his host hath he cast into the sea: his chosen captains also are drowned in the Red sea.

Exo|15|5| The depths have covered them: they sank into the bottom as a stone.

Exo|15|6| Thy right hand, O LORD, is become glorious in power: thy right hand, O LORD, hath dashed in pieces the enemy.

Exo|15|7| And in the greatness of thine excellency thou hast overthrown them that rose up against thee: thou sentest forth thy wrath, which consumed them as stubble.

Exo|15|8| And with the blast of thy nostrils the waters were gathered together, the floods stood upright as an heap, and the depths were congealed in the heart of the sea.

Exo|15|9| The enemy said, I will pursue, I will overtake, I will divide the spoil; my lust shall be satisfied upon them; I will draw my sword, my hand shall destroy them.

Exo|15|10| Thou didst blow with thy wind, the sea covered them: they sank as lead in the mighty waters.

Exo|15|11| Who is like unto thee, O LORD, among the gods? who is like thee, glorious in holiness, fearful in praises, doing wonders?

Exo|15|12| Thou stretchedst out thy right hand, the earth swallowed them.

Exo|15|13| Thou in thy mercy hast led forth the people which thou hast redeemed: thou hast guided them in thy strength unto thy holy habitation.

Exo|15|14| The people shall hear, and be afraid: sorrow shall take hold on the inhabitants of Palestina.

Exo|15|15| Then the dukes of Edom shall be amazed; the mighty men of Moab, trembling shall take hold upon them; all the inhabitants of Canaan shall melt away.

Exo|15|16| Fear and dread shall fall upon them; by the greatness of thine arm they shall be as still as a stone; till thy people pass over, O LORD, till the people pass over, which thou hast purchased.

Exo|15|17| Thou shalt bring them in, and plant them in the mountain of thine inheritance, in the place, O LORD, which thou hast made for thee to dwell in, in the Sanctuary, O LORD, which thy hands have established.

Exo|15|18| The LORD shall reign for ever and ever.

Exo|15|19| For the horse of Pharaoh went in with his chariots and with his horsemen into the sea, and the LORD brought again the waters of the sea upon them; but the children of Israel went on dry land in the midst of the sea.

Exo|15|20| And Miriam the prophetess, the sister of Aaron, took a timbrel in her hand; and all the women went out after her with timbrels and with dances.

Exo|15|21| And Miriam answered them, Sing ye to the LORD, for he hath triumphed gloriously; the horse and his rider hath he thrown into the sea.

Exo|15|22| So Moses brought Israel from the Red sea, and they went out into the wilderness of Shur; and they went three days in the wilderness, and found no water.

Exo|15|23| And when they came to Marah, they could not drink of the waters of Marah, for they were bitter: therefore the name of it was called Marah.

Exo|15|24| And the people murmured against Moses, saying, What shall we drink?

Exo|15|25| And he cried unto the LORD; and the LORD shewed him a tree, which when he had cast into the waters, the waters were made sweet: there he made for them a statute and an ordinance, and there he proved them,

Exo|15|26| And said, If thou wilt diligently hearken to the voice of the LORD thy God, and wilt do that which is right in his sight, and wilt give ear to his commandments, and keep all his statutes, I will put none of these diseases upon thee, which I have brought upon the Egyptians: for I am the LORD that healeth thee.

Exo|15|27| And they came to Elim, where were twelve wells of water, and threescore and ten palm trees: and they encamped there by the waters.

Exo|16|1| And they took their journey from Elim, and all the congregation of the children of Israel came unto the wilderness of Sin, which is between Elim and Sinai, on the fifteenth day of the second month after their departing out of the land of Egypt.

Exo|16|2| And the whole congregation of the children of Israel murmured against Moses and Aaron in the wilderness:

Exo|16|3| And the children of Israel said unto them, Would to God we had died by the hand of the LORD in the land of Egypt, when we sat by the flesh pots, and when we did eat bread to the full; for ye have brought us forth into this wilderness, to kill this whole assembly with hunger.

Exo|16|4| Then said the LORD unto Moses, Behold, I will rain bread from heaven for you; and the people shall go out and gather a certain rate every day, that I may prove them, whether they will walk in my law, or no.

Exo|16|5| And it shall come to pass, that on the sixth day they shall prepare that which they bring in; and it shall be twice as much as they gather daily.

Exo|16|6| And Moses and Aaron said unto all the children of Israel, At even, then ye shall know that the LORD hath brought you out from the land of Egypt:

Exo|16|7| And in the morning, then ye shall see the glory of the LORD; for that he heareth your murmurings against the LORD: and what are we, that ye murmur against us?

Exo|16|8| And Moses said, This shall be, when the LORD shall give you in the evening flesh to eat, and in the morning bread to the full; for that the LORD heareth your murmurings which ye murmur against him: and what are we? your murmurings are not against us, but against the LORD.

Exo|16|9| And Moses spake unto Aaron, Say unto all the congregation of the children of Israel, Come near before the LORD: for he hath heard your murmurings.

Exo|16|10| And it came to pass, as Aaron spake unto the whole congregation of the children of Israel, that they looked toward the wilderness, and, behold, the glory of the LORD appeared in the cloud.

Exo|16|11| And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

Exo|16|12| I have heard the murmurings of the children of Israel: speak unto them, saying, At even ye shall eat flesh, and in the morning ye shall be filled with bread; and ye shall know that I am the LORD your God.

Exo|16|13| And it came to pass, that at even the quails came up, and covered the camp: and in the morning the dew lay round about the host.

Exo|16|14| And when the dew that lay was gone up, behold, upon the face of the wilderness there lay a small round thing, as small as the hoar frost on the ground.

Exo|16|15| And when the children of Israel saw it, they said one to another, It is manna: for they wist not what it was. And Moses said unto them, This is the bread which the LORD hath given you to eat.

Exo|16|16| This is the thing which the LORD hath commanded, Gather of it every man according to his eating, an omer for every man, according to the number of your persons; take ye every man for them which are in his tents.

Exo|16|17| And the children of Israel did so, and gathered, some more, some less.

Exo|16|18| And when they did mete it with an omer, he that gathered much had nothing over, and he that gathered little had no lack; they gathered every man according to his eating.

Exo|16|19| And Moses said, Let no man leave of it till the morning.

Exo|16|20| Notwithstanding they hearkened not unto Moses; but some of them left of it until the morning, and it bred worms, and stank: and Moses was wroth with them.

Exo|16|21| And they gathered it every morning, every man according to his eating: and when the sun waxed hot, it melted.

Exo|16|22| And it came to pass, that on the sixth day they gathered twice as much bread, two omers for one man: and all the rulers of the congregation came and told Moses.

Exo|16|23| And he said unto them, This is that which the LORD hath said, To morrow is the rest of the holy sabbath unto the LORD: bake that which ye will bake to day, and seethe that ye will seethe; and that which remaineth over lay up for you to be kept until the morning.

Exo|16|24| And they laid it up till the morning, as Moses bade: and it did not stink, neither was there any worm therein.

Exo|16|25| And Moses said, Eat that to day; for to day is a sabbath unto the LORD: to day ye shall not find it in the field.

Exo|16|26| Six days ye shall gather it; but on the seventh day, which is the sabbath, in it there shall be none.

Exo|16|27| And it came to pass, that there went out some of the people on the seventh day for to gather, and they found none.

Exo|16|28| And the LORD said unto Moses, How long refuse ye to keep my commandments and my laws?

Exo|16|29| See, for that the LORD hath given you the sabbath, therefore he giveth you on the sixth day the bread of two days; abide ye every man in his place, let no man go out of his place on the seventh day.

Exo|16|30| So the people rested on the seventh day.

Exo|16|31| And the house of Israel called the name thereof Manna: and it was like coriander seed, white; and the taste of it was like wafers made with honey.

Exo|16|32| And Moses said, This is the thing which the LORD commandeth, Fill an omer of it to be kept for your generations; that they may see the bread wherewith I have fed you in the wilderness, when I brought you forth from the land of Egypt.

Exo|16|33| And Moses said unto Aaron, Take a pot, and put an omer full of manna therein, and lay it up before the LORD, to be kept for your generations.

Exo|16|34| As the LORD commanded Moses, so Aaron laid it up before the Testimony, to be kept.

Exo|16|35| And the children of Israel did eat manna forty years, until they came to a land inhabited; they did eat manna, until they came unto the borders of the land of Canaan.

Exo|16|36| Now an omer is the tenth part of an ephah.

Exo|17|1| And all the congregation of the children of Israel journeyed from the wilderness of Sin, after their journeys, according to the commandment of the LORD, and pitched in Rephidim: and there was no water for the people to drink.

Exo|17|2| Wherefore the people did chide with Moses, and said, Give us water that we may drink. And Moses said unto them, Why chide ye with me? wherefore do ye tempt the LORD?

Exo|17|3| And the people thirsted there for water; and the people murmured against Moses, and said, Wherefore is this that thou hast brought us up out of Egypt, to kill us and our children and our cattle with thirst?

Exo|17|4| And Moses cried unto the LORD, saying, What shall I do unto this people? they be almost ready to stone me.

Exo|17|5| And the LORD said unto Moses, Go on before the people, and take with thee of the elders of Israel; and thy rod, wherewith thou smotest the river, take in thine hand, and go.

Exo|17|6| Behold, I will stand before thee there upon the rock in Horeb; and thou shalt smite the rock, and there shall come water out of it, that the people may drink. And Moses did so in the sight of the elders of Israel.

Exo|17|7| And he called the name of the place Massah, and Meribah, because of the chiding of the children of Israel, and because they tempted the LORD, saying, Is the LORD among us, or not?

Exo|17|8| Then came Amalek, and fought with Israel in Rephidim.

Exo|17|9| And Moses said unto Joshua, Choose us out men, and go out, fight with Amalek: to morrow I will stand on the top of the hill with the rod of God in mine hand.

Exo|17|10| So Joshua did as Moses had said to him, and fought with Amalek: and Moses, Aaron, and Hur went up to the top of the hill.

Exo|17|11| And it came to pass, when Moses held up his hand, that Israel prevailed: and when he let down his hand, Amalek prevailed.

Exo|17|12| But Moses hands were heavy; and they took a stone, and put it under him, and he sat thereon; and Aaron and Hur stayed up his hands, the one on the one side, and the other on the other side; and his hands were steady until the going down of the sun.

Exo|17|13| And Joshua discomfited Amalek and his people with the edge of the sword.

Exo|17|14| And the LORD said unto Moses, Write this for a memorial in a book, and rehearse it in the ears of Joshua: for I will utterly put out the remembrance of Amalek from under heaven.

Exo|17|15| And Moses built an altar, and called the name of it Jehovahnissi:

Exo|17|16| For he said, Because the LORD hath sworn that the LORD will have war with Amalek from generation to generation.

Exo|18|1| When Jethro, the priest of Midian, Moses' father in law, heard of all that God had done for Moses, and for Israel his people, and that the LORD had brought Israel out of Egypt;

Exo|18|2| Then Jethro, Moses' father in law, took Zipporah, Moses' wife, after he had sent her back,

Exo|18|3| And her two sons; of which the name of the one was Gershom; for he said, I have been an alien in a strange land:

Exo|18|4| And the name of the other was Eliezer; for the God of my father, said he, was mine help, and delivered me from the sword of Pharaoh:

Exo|18|5| And Jethro, Moses' father in law, came with his sons and his wife unto Moses into the wilderness, where he encamped at the mount of God:

Exo|18|6| And he said unto Moses, I thy father in law Jethro am come unto thee, and thy wife, and her two sons with her.

Exo|18|7| And Moses went out to meet his father in law, and did obeisance, and kissed him; and they asked each other of their welfare; and they came into the tent.

Exo|18|8| And Moses told his father in law all that the LORD had done unto Pharaoh and to the Egyptians for Israel's sake, and all the travail that had come upon them by the way, and how the LORD delivered them.

Exo|18|9| And Jethro rejoiced for all the goodness which the LORD had done to Israel, whom he had delivered out of the hand of the Egyptians.

Exo|18|10| And Jethro said, Blessed be the LORD, who hath delivered you out of the hand of the Egyptians, and out of the hand of Pharaoh, who hath delivered the people from under the hand of the Egyptians.

Exo|18|11| Now I know that the LORD is greater than all gods: for in the thing wherein they dealt proudly he was above them.

Exo|18|12| And Jethro, Moses' father in law, took a burnt offering and sacrifices for God: and Aaron came, and all the elders of Israel, to eat bread with Moses' father in law before God.

Exo|18|13| And it came to pass on the morrow, that Moses sat to judge the people: and the people stood by Moses from the morning unto the evening.

Exo|18|14| And when Moses' father in law saw all that he did to the people, he said, What is this thing that thou doest to the people? why sittest thou thyself alone, and all the people stand by thee from morning unto even?

Exo|18|15| And Moses said unto his father in law, Because the people come unto me to enquire of God:

Exo|18|16| When they have a matter, they come unto me; and I judge between one and another, and I do make them know the statutes of God, and his laws.

Exo|18|17| And Moses' father in law said unto him, The thing that thou doest is not good.

Exo|18|18| Thou wilt surely wear away, both thou, and this people that is with thee: for this thing is too heavy for thee; thou art not able to perform it thyself alone.

Exo|18|19| Hearken now unto my voice, I will give thee counsel, and God shall be with thee: Be thou for the people to God-ward, that thou mayest bring the causes unto God:

Exo|18|20| And thou shalt teach them ordinances and laws, and shalt shew them the way wherein they must walk, and the work that they must do.

Exo|18|21| Moreover thou shalt provide out of all the people able men, such as fear God, men of truth, hating covetousness; and place such over them, to be rulers of thousands, and rulers of hundreds, rulers of fifties, and rulers of tens:

Exo|18|22| And let them judge the people at all seasons: and it shall be, that every great matter they shall bring unto thee, but every small matter they shall judge: so shall it be easier for thyself, and they shall bear the burden with thee.

Exo|18|23| If thou shalt do this thing, and God command thee so, then thou shalt be able to endure, and all this people shall also go to their place in peace.

Exo|18|24| So Moses hearkened to the voice of his father in law, and did all that he had said.

Exo|18|25| And Moses chose able men out of all Israel, and made them heads over the people, rulers of thousands, rulers of hundreds, rulers of fifties, and rulers of tens.

Exo|18|26| And they judged the people at all seasons: the hard causes they brought unto Moses, but every small matter they judged themselves.

Exo|18|27| And Moses let his father in law depart; and he went his way into his own land.

Exo|19|1| In the third month, when the children of Israel were gone forth out of the land of Egypt, the same day came they into the wilderness of Sinai.

Exo|19|2| For they were departed from Rephidim, and were come to the desert of Sinai, and had pitched in the wilderness; and there Israel camped before the mount.

Exo|19|3| And Moses went up unto God, and the LORD called unto him out of the mountain, saying, Thus shalt thou say to the house of Jacob, and tell the children of Israel;

Exo|19|4| Ye have seen what I did unto the Egyptians, and how I bare you on eagles' wings, and brought you unto myself.

Exo|19|5| Now therefore, if ye will obey my voice indeed, and keep my covenant, then ye shall be a peculiar treasure unto me above all people: for all the earth is mine:

Exo|19|6| And ye shall be unto me a kingdom of priests, and an holy nation. These are the words which thou shalt speak unto the children of Israel.

Exo|19|7| And Moses came and called for the elders of the people, and laid before their faces all these words which the LORD commanded him.

Exo|19|8| And all the people answered together, and said, All that the LORD hath spoken we will do. And Moses returned the words of the people unto the LORD.

Exo|19|9| And the LORD said unto Moses, Lo, I come unto thee in a thick cloud, that the people may hear when I speak with thee, and believe thee for ever. And Moses told the words of the people unto the LORD.

Exo|19|10| And the LORD said unto Moses, Go unto the people, and sanctify them to day and to morrow, and let them wash their clothes,

Exo|19|11| And be ready against the third day: for the third day the LORD will come down in the sight of all the people upon mount Sinai.

Exo|19|12| And thou shalt set bounds unto the people round about, saying, Take heed to yourselves, that ye go not up into the mount, or touch the border of it: whosoever toucheth the mount shall be surely put to death:

Exo|19|13| There shall not an hand touch it, but he shall surely be stoned, or shot through; whether it be beast or man, it shall not live: when the trumpet soundeth long, they shall come up to the mount.

Exo|19|14| And Moses went down from the mount unto the people, and sanctified the people; and they washed their clothes.

Exo|19|15| And he said unto the people, Be ready against the third day: come not at your wives.

Exo|19|16| And it came to pass on the third day in the morning, that there were thunders and lightnings, and a thick cloud upon the mount, and the voice of the trumpet exceeding loud; so that all the people that was in the camp trembled.

Exo|19|17| And Moses brought forth the people out of the camp to meet with God; and they stood at the nether part of the mount.

Exo|19|18| And mount Sinai was altogether on a smoke, because the LORD descended upon it in fire: and the smoke thereof ascended as the smoke of a furnace, and the whole mount quaked greatly.

Exo|19|19| And when the voice of the trumpet sounded long, and waxed louder and louder, Moses spake, and God answered him by a voice.

Exo|19|20| And the LORD came down upon mount Sinai, on the top of the mount: and the LORD called Moses up to the top of the mount; and Moses went up.

Exo|19|21| And the LORD said unto Moses, Go down, charge the people, lest they break through unto the LORD to gaze, and many of them perish.

Exo|19|22| And let the priests also, which come near to the LORD, sanctify themselves, lest the LORD break forth upon them.

Exo|19|23| And Moses said unto the LORD, The people cannot come up to mount Sinai: for thou chargedst us, saying, Set bounds about the mount, and sanctify it.

Exo|19|24| And the LORD said unto him, Away, get thee down, and thou shalt come up, thou, and Aaron with thee: but let not the priests and the people break through to come up unto the LORD, lest he break forth upon them.

Exo|19|25| So Moses went down unto the people, and spake unto them.

Exo|20|1| And God spake all these words, saying,

Exo|20|2| I am the LORD thy God, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage.

Exo|20|3| Thou shalt have no other gods before me.

Exo|20|4| Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth.

Exo|20|5| Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me;

Exo|20|6| And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments.

Exo|20|7| Thou shalt not take the name of the LORD thy God in vain; for the LORD will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain.

Exo|20|8| Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy.

Exo|20|9| Six days shalt thou labour, and do all thy work:

Exo|20|10| But the seventh day is the sabbath of the LORD thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates:

Exo|20|11| For in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the LORD blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it.

Exo|20|12| Honour thy father and thy mother: that thy days may be long upon the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee.

Exo|20|13| Thou shalt not kill.

Exo|20|14| Thou shalt not commit adultery.

Exo|20|15| Thou shalt not steal.

Exo|20|16| Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbour.

Exo|20|17| Thou shalt not covet thy neighbour's house, thou shalt not covet thy neighbour's wife, nor his manservant, nor his maidservant, nor his ox, nor his ass, nor any thing that is thy neighbour's.

Exo|20|18| And all the people saw the thunderings, and the lightnings, and the noise of the trumpet, and the mountain smoking: and when the people saw it, they removed, and stood afar off.

Exo|20|19| And they said unto Moses, Speak thou with us, and we will hear: but let not God speak with us, lest we die.

Exo|20|20| And Moses said unto the people, Fear not: for God is come to prove you, and that his fear may be before your faces, that ye sin not.

Exo|20|21| And the people stood afar off, and Moses drew near unto the thick darkness where God was.

Exo|20|22| And the LORD said unto Moses, Thus thou shalt say unto the children of Israel, Ye have seen that I have talked with you from heaven.

Exo|20|23| Ye shall not make with me gods of silver, neither shall ye make unto you gods of gold.

Exo|20|24| An altar of earth thou shalt make unto me, and shalt sacrifice thereon thy burnt offerings, and thy peace offerings, thy sheep, and thine oxen: in all places where I record my name I will come unto thee, and I will bless thee.

Exo|20|25| And if thou wilt make me an altar of stone, thou shalt not build it of hewn stone: for if thou lift up thy tool upon it, thou hast polluted it.

Exo|20|26| Neither shalt thou go up by steps unto mine altar, that thy nakedness be not discovered thereon.

Exo|21|1| Now these are the judgments which thou shalt set before them.

Exo|21|2| If thou buy an Hebrew servant, six years he shall serve: and in the seventh he shall go out free for nothing.

Exo|21|3| If he came in by himself, he shall go out by himself: if he were married, then his wife shall go out with him.

Exo|21|4| If his master have given him a wife, and she have born him sons or daughters; the wife and her children shall be her master's, and he shall go out by himself.

Exo|21|5| And if the servant shall plainly say, I love my master, my wife, and my children; I will not go out free:

Exo|21|6| Then his master shall bring him unto the judges; he shall also bring him to the door, or unto the door post; and his master shall bore his ear through with an aul; and he shall serve him for ever.

Exo|21|7| And if a man sell his daughter to be a maidservant, she shall not go out as the menservants do.

Exo|21|8| If she please not her master, who hath betrothed her to himself, then shall he let her be redeemed: to sell her unto a strange nation he shall have no power, seeing he hath dealt deceitfully with her.

Exo|21|9| And if he have betrothed her unto his son, he shall deal with her after the manner of daughters.

Exo|21|10| If he take him another wife; her food, her raiment, and her duty of marriage, shall he not diminish.

Exo|21|11| And if he do not these three unto her, then shall she go out free without money.

Exo|21|12| He that smiteth a man, so that he die, shall be surely put to death.

Exo|21|13| And if a man lie not in wait, but God deliver him into his hand; then I will appoint thee a place whither he shall flee.

Exo|21|14| But if a man come presumptuously upon his neighbour, to slay him with guile; thou shalt take him from mine altar, that he may die.

Exo|21|15| And he that smiteth his father, or his mother, shall be surely put to death.

Exo|21|16| And he that stealeth a man, and selleth him, or if he be found in his hand, he shall surely be put to death.

Exo|21|17| And he that curseth his father, or his mother, shall surely be put to death.

Exo|21|18| And if men strive together, and one smite another with a stone, or with his fist, and he die not, but keepeth his bed:

Exo|21|19| If he rise again, and walk abroad upon his staff, then shall he that smote him be quit: only he shall pay for the loss of his time, and shall cause him to be thoroughly healed.

Exo|21|20| And if a man smite his servant, or his maid, with a rod, and he die under his hand; he shall be surely punished.

Exo|21|21| Notwithstanding, if he continue a day or two, he shall not be punished: for he is his money.

Exo|21|22| If men strive, and hurt a woman with child, so that her fruit depart from her, and yet no mischief follow: he shall be surely punished, according as the woman's husband will lay upon him; and he shall pay as the judges determine.

Exo|21|23| And if any mischief follow, then thou shalt give life for life,

Exo|21|24| Eye for eye, tooth for tooth, hand for hand, foot for foot,

Exo|21|25| Burning for burning, wound for wound, stripe for stripe.

Exo|21|26| And if a man smite the eye of his servant, or the eye of his maid, that it perish; he shall let him go free for his eye's sake.

Exo|21|27| And if he smite out his manservant's tooth, or his maidservant's tooth; he shall let him go free for his tooth's sake.

Exo|21|28| If an ox gore a man or a woman, that they die: then the ox shall be surely stoned, and his flesh shall not be eaten; but the owner of the ox shall be quit.

Exo|21|29| But if the ox were wont to push with his horn in time past, and it hath been testified to his owner, and he hath not kept him in, but that he hath killed a man or a woman; the ox shall be stoned, and his owner also shall be put to death.

Exo|21|30| If there be laid on him a sum of money, then he shall give for the ransom of his life whatsoever is laid upon him.

Exo|21|31| Whether he have gored a son, or have gored a daughter, according to this judgment shall it be done unto him.

Exo|21|32| If the ox shall push a manservant or a maidservant; he shall give unto their master thirty shekels of silver, and the ox shall be stoned.

Exo|21|33| And if a man shall open a pit, or if a man shall dig a pit, and not cover it, and an ox or an ass fall therein;

Exo|21|34| The owner of the pit shall make it good, and give money unto the owner of them; and the dead beast shall be his.

Exo|21|35| And if one man's ox hurt another's, that he die; then they shall sell the live ox, and divide the money of it; and the dead ox also they shall divide.

Exo|21|36| Or if it be known that the ox hath used to push in time past, and his owner hath not kept him in; he shall surely pay ox for ox; and the dead shall be his own.

Exo|22|1| If a man shall steal an ox, or a sheep, and kill it, or sell it; he shall restore five oxen for an ox, and four sheep for a sheep.

Exo|22|2| If a thief be found breaking up, and be smitten that he die, there shall no blood be shed for him.

Exo|22|3| If the sun be risen upon him, there shall be blood shed for him; for he should make full restitution; if he have nothing, then he shall be sold for his theft.

Exo|22|4| If the theft be certainly found in his hand alive, whether it be ox, or ass, or sheep; he shall restore double.

Exo|22|5| If a man shall cause a field or vineyard to be eaten, and shall put in his beast, and shall feed in another man's field; of the best of his own field, and of the best of his own vineyard, shall he make restitution.

Exo|22|6| If fire break out, and catch in thorns, so that the stacks of corn, or the standing corn, or the field, be consumed therewith; he that kindled the fire shall surely make restitution.

Exo|22|7| If a man shall deliver unto his neighbour money or stuff to keep, and it be stolen out of the man's house; if the thief be found, let him pay double.

Exo|22|8| If the thief be not found, then the master of the house shall be brought unto the judges, to see whether he have put his hand unto his neighbour's goods.

Exo|22|9| For all manner of trespass, whether it be for ox, for ass, for sheep, for raiment, or for any manner of lost thing which another challengeth to be his, the cause of both parties shall come before the judges; and whom the judges shall condemn, he shall pay double unto his neighbour.

Exo|22|10| If a man deliver unto his neighbour an ass, or an ox, or a sheep, or any beast, to keep; and it die, or be hurt, or driven away, no man seeing it:

Exo|22|11| Then shall an oath of the LORD be between them both, that he hath not put his hand unto his neighbour's goods; and the owner of it shall accept thereof, and he shall not make it good.

Exo|22|12| And if it be stolen from him, he shall make restitution unto the owner thereof.

Exo|22|13| If it be torn in pieces, then let him bring it for witness, and he shall not make good that which was torn.

Exo|22|14| And if a man borrow ought of his neighbour, and it be hurt, or die, the owner thereof being not with it, he shall surely make it good.

Exo|22|15| But if the owner thereof be with it, he shall not make it good: if it be an hired thing, it came for his hire.

Exo|22|16| And if a man entice a maid that is not betrothed, and lie with her, he shall surely endow her to be his wife.

Exo|22|17| If her father utterly refuse to give her unto him, he shall pay money according to the dowry of virgins.

Exo|22|18| Thou shalt not suffer a witch to live.

Exo|22|19| Whosoever lieth with a beast shall surely be put to death.

Exo|22|20| He that sacrificeth unto any god, save unto the LORD only, he shall be utterly destroyed.

Exo|22|21| Thou shalt neither vex a stranger, nor oppress him: for ye were strangers in the land of Egypt.

Exo|22|22| Ye shall not afflict any widow, or fatherless child.

Exo|22|23| If thou afflict them in any wise, and they cry at all unto me, I will surely hear their cry;

Exo|22|24| And my wrath shall wax hot, and I will kill you with the sword; and your wives shall be widows, and your children fatherless.

Exo|22|25| If thou lend money to any of my people that is poor by thee, thou shalt not be to him as an usurer, neither shalt thou lay upon him usury.

Exo|22|26| If thou at all take thy neighbour's raiment to pledge, thou shalt deliver it unto him by that the sun goeth down:

Exo|22|27| For that is his covering only, it is his raiment for his skin: wherein shall he sleep? and it shall come to pass, when he crieth unto me, that I will hear; for I am gracious.

Exo|22|28| Thou shalt not revile the gods, nor curse the ruler of thy people.

Exo|22|29| Thou shalt not delay to offer the first of thy ripe fruits, and of thy liquors: the firstborn of thy sons shalt thou give unto me.

Exo|22|30| Likewise shalt thou do with thine oxen, and with thy sheep: seven days it shall be with his dam; on the eighth day thou shalt give it me.

Exo|22|31| And ye shall be holy men unto me: neither shall ye eat any flesh that is torn of beasts in the field; ye shall cast it to the dogs.

Exo|23|1| Thou shalt not raise a false report: put not thine hand with the wicked to be an unrighteous witness.

Exo|23|2| Thou shalt not follow a multitude to do evil; neither shalt thou speak in a cause to decline after many to wrest judgment:

Exo|23|3| Neither shalt thou countenance a poor man in his cause.

Exo|23|4| If thou meet thine enemy's ox or his ass going astray, thou shalt surely bring it back to him again.

Exo|23|5| If thou see the ass of him that hateth thee lying under his burden, and wouldest forbear to help him, thou shalt surely help with him.

Exo|23|6| Thou shalt not wrest the judgment of thy poor in his cause.

Exo|23|7| Keep thee far from a false matter; and the innocent and righteous slay thou not: for I will not justify the wicked.

Exo|23|8| And thou shalt take no gift: for the gift blindeth the wise, and perverteth the words of the righteous.

Exo|23|9| Also thou shalt not oppress a stranger: for ye know the heart of a stranger, seeing ye were strangers in the land of Egypt.

Exo|23|10| And six years thou shalt sow thy land, and shalt gather in the fruits thereof:

Exo|23|11| But the seventh year thou shalt let it rest and lie still; that the poor of thy people may eat: and what they leave the beasts of the field shall eat. In like manner thou shalt deal with thy vineyard, and with thy oliveyard.

Exo|23|12| Six days thou shalt do thy work, and on the seventh day thou shalt rest: that thine ox and thine ass may rest, and the son of thy handmaid, and the stranger, may be refreshed.

Exo|23|13| And in all things that I have said unto you be circumspect: and make no mention of the name of other gods, neither let it be heard out of thy mouth.

Exo|23|14| Three times thou shalt keep a feast unto me in the year.

Exo|23|15| Thou shalt keep the feast of unleavened bread: (thou shalt eat unleavened bread seven days, as I commanded thee, in the time appointed of the month Abib; for in it thou camest out from Egypt: and none shall appear before me empty:)

Exo|23|16| And the feast of harvest, the firstfruits of thy labours, which thou hast sown in the field: and the feast of ingathering, which is in the end of the year, when thou hast gathered in thy labours out of the field.

Exo|23|17| Three items in the year all thy males shall appear before the LORD God.

Exo|23|18| Thou shalt not offer the blood of my sacrifice with leavened bread; neither shall the fat of my sacrifice remain until the morning.

Exo|23|19| The first of the firstfruits of thy land thou shalt bring into the house of the LORD thy God. Thou shalt not seethe a kid in his mother's milk.

Exo|23|20| Behold, I send an Angel before thee, to keep thee in the way, and to bring thee into the place which I have prepared.

Exo|23|21| Beware of him, and obey his voice, provoke him not; for he will not pardon your transgressions: for my name is in him.

Exo|23|22| But if thou shalt indeed obey his voice, and do all that I speak; then I will be an enemy unto thine enemies, and an adversary unto thine adversaries.

Exo|23|23| For mine Angel shall go before thee, and bring thee in unto the Amorites, and the Hittites, and the Perizzites, and the Canaanites, the Hivites, and the Jebusites: and I will cut them off.

Exo|23|24| Thou shalt not bow down to their gods, nor serve them, nor do after their works: but thou shalt utterly overthrow them, and quite break down their images.

Exo|23|25| And ye shall serve the LORD your God, and he shall bless thy bread, and thy water; and I will take sickness away from the midst of thee.

Exo|23|26| There shall nothing cast their young, nor be barren, in thy land: the number of thy days I will fulfil.

Exo|23|27| I will send my fear before thee, and will destroy all the people to whom thou shalt come, and I will make all thine enemies turn their backs unto thee.

Exo|23|28| And I will send hornets before thee, which shall drive out the Hivite, the Canaanite, and the Hittite, from before thee.

Exo|23|29| I will not drive them out from before thee in one year; lest the land become desolate, and the beast of the field multiply against thee.

Exo|23|30| By little and little I will drive them out from before thee, until thou be increased, and inherit the land.

Exo|23|31| And I will set thy bounds from the Red sea even unto the sea of the Philistines, and from the desert unto the river: for I will deliver the inhabitants of the land into your hand; and thou shalt drive them out before thee.

Exo|23|32| Thou shalt make no covenant with them, nor with their gods.

Exo|23|33| They shall not dwell in thy land, lest they make thee sin against me: for if thou serve their gods, it will surely be a snare unto thee.

Exo|24|1| And he said unto Moses, Come up unto the LORD, thou, and Aaron, Nadab, and Abihu, and seventy of the elders of Israel; and worship ye afar off.

Exo|24|2| And Moses alone shall come near the LORD: but they shall not come nigh; neither shall the people go up with him.

Exo|24|3| And Moses came and told the people all the words of the LORD, and all the judgments: and all the people answered with one voice, and said, All the words which the LORD hath said will we do.

Exo|24|4| And Moses wrote all the words of the LORD, and rose up early in the morning, and builded an altar under the hill, and twelve pillars, according to the twelve tribes of Israel.

Exo|24|5| And he sent young men of the children of Israel, which offered burnt offerings, and sacrificed peace offerings of oxen unto the LORD.

Exo|24|6| And Moses took half of the blood, and put it in basons; and half of the blood he sprinkled on the altar.

Exo|24|7| And he took the book of the covenant, and read in the audience of the people: and they said, All that the LORD hath said will we do, and be obedient.

Exo|24|8| And Moses took the blood, and sprinkled it on the people, and said, Behold the blood of the covenant, which the LORD hath made with you concerning all these words.

Exo|24|9| Then went up Moses, and Aaron, Nadab, and Abihu, and seventy of the elders of Israel:

Exo|24|10| And they saw the God of Israel: and there was under his feet as it were a paved work of a sapphire stone, and as it were the body of heaven in his clearness.

Exo|24|11| And upon the nobles of the children of Israel he laid not his hand: also they saw God, and did eat and drink.

Exo|24|12| And the LORD said unto Moses, Come up to me into the mount, and be there: and I will give thee tables of stone, and a law, and commandments which I have written; that thou mayest teach them.

Exo|24|13| And Moses rose up, and his minister Joshua: and Moses went up into the mount of God.

Exo|24|14| And he said unto the elders, Tarry ye here for us, until we come again unto you: and, behold, Aaron and Hur are with you: if any man have any matters to do, let him come unto them.

Exo|24|15| And Moses went up into the mount, and a cloud covered the mount.

Exo|24|16| And the glory of the LORD abode upon mount Sinai, and the cloud covered it six days: and the seventh day he called unto Moses out of the midst of the cloud.

Exo|24|17| And the sight of the glory of the LORD was like devouring fire on the top of the mount in the eyes of the children of Israel.

Exo|24|18| And Moses went into the midst of the cloud, and gat him up into the mount: and Moses was in the mount forty days and forty nights.

Exo|25|1| And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

Exo|25|2| Speak unto the children of Israel, that they bring me an offering: of every man that giveth it willingly with his heart ye shall take my offering.

Exo|25|3| And this is the offering which ye shall take of them; gold, and silver, and brass,

Exo|25|4| And blue, and purple, and scarlet, and fine linen, and goats' hair,

Exo|25|5| And rams' skins dyed red, and badgers' skins, and shittim wood,

Exo|25|20| And the cherubims shall stretch forth their wings on high, covering the mercy seat with their wings, and their faces shall look one to another; toward the mercy seat shall the faces of the cherubims be.

Exo|25|21| And thou shalt put the mercy seat above upon the ark; and in the ark thou shalt put the testimony that I shall give thee.

Exo|29|22| Also thou shalt take of the ram the fat and the rump, and the fat that covereth the inwards, and the caul above the liver, and the two kidneys, and the fat that is upon them, and the right shoulder; for it is a ram of consecration:

Exo|29|23| And one loaf of bread, and one cake of oiled bread, and one wafer out of the basket of the unleavened bread that is before the LORD:

Exo|29|24| And thou shalt put all in the hands of Aaron, and in the hands of his sons; and shalt wave them for a wave offering before the LORD.

Exo|29|32| And Aaron and his sons shall eat the flesh of the ram, and the bread that is in the basket by the door of the tabernacle of the congregation.

Exo|29|33| And they shall eat those things wherewith the atonement was made, to consecrate and to sanctify them: but a stranger shall not eat thereof, because they are holy.

Exo|29|34| And if ought of the flesh of the consecrations, or of the bread, remain unto the morning, then thou shalt burn the remainder with fire: it shall not be eaten, because it is holy.

Exo|29|35| And thus shalt thou do unto Aaron, and to his sons, according to all things which I have commanded thee: seven days shalt thou consecrate them.

Exo|29|36| And thou shalt offer every day a bullock for a sin offering for atonement: and thou shalt cleanse the altar, when thou hast made an atonement for it, and thou shalt anoint it, to sanctify it.

Exo|29|37| Seven days thou shalt make an atonement for the altar, and sanctify it; and it shall be an altar most holy: whatsoever toucheth the altar shall be holy.

Exo|29|38| Now this is that which thou shalt offer upon the altar; two lambs of the first year day by day continually.

Exo|29|39| The one lamb thou shalt offer in the morning; and the other lamb thou shalt offer at even:

Exo|29|40| And with the one lamb a tenth deal of flour mingled with the fourth part of an hin of beaten oil; and the fourth part of an hin of wine for a drink offering.

Exo|29|41| And the other lamb thou shalt offer at even, and shalt do thereto according to the meat offering of the morning, and according to the drink offering thereof, for a sweet savour, an offering made by fire unto the LORD.

Exo|29|42| This shall be a continual burnt offering throughout your generations at the door of the tabernacle of the congregation before the LORD: where I will meet you, to speak there unto thee.

Exo|29|43| And there I will meet with the children of Israel, and the tabernacle shall be sanctified by my glory.

Exo|29|44| And I will sanctify the tabernacle of the congregation, and the altar: I will sanctify also both Aaron and his sons, to minister to me in the priest's office.

Exo|29|45| And I will dwell among the children of Israel, and will be their God.

Exo|29|46| And they shall know that I am the LORD their God, that brought them forth out of the land of Egypt, that I may dwell among them: I am the LORD their God.

Exo|30|1| And thou shalt make an altar to burn incense upon: of shittim wood shalt thou make it.

Exo|30|2| A cubit shall be the length thereof, and a cubit the breadth thereof; foursquare shall it be: and two cubits shall be the height thereof: the horns thereof shall be of the same.

Exo|30|3| And thou shalt overlay it with pure gold, the top thereof, and the sides thereof round about, and the horns thereof; and thou shalt make unto it a crown of gold round about.

Exo|30|4| And two golden rings shalt thou make to it under the crown of it, by the two corners thereof, upon the two sides of it shalt thou make it; and they shall be for places for the staves to bear it withal.

Exo|30|5| And thou shalt make the staves of shittim wood, and overlay them with gold.

Exo|30|6| And thou shalt put it before the vail that is by the ark of the testimony, before the mercy seat that is over the testimony, where I will meet with thee.

Exo|30|7| And Aaron shall burn thereon sweet incense every morning: when he dresseth the lamps, he shall burn incense upon it.

Exo|30|8| And when Aaron lighteth the lamps at even, he shall burn incense upon it, a perpetual incense before the LORD throughout your generations.

Exo|30|9| Ye shall offer no strange incense thereon, nor burnt sacrifice, nor meat offering; neither shall ye pour drink offering thereon.

Exo|30|10| And Aaron shall make an atonement upon the horns of it once in a year with the blood of the sin offering of atonements: once in the year shall he make atonement upon it throughout your generations: it is most holy unto the LORD.

Exo|30|11| And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

Exo|30|12| When thou takest the sum of the children of Israel after their number, then shall they give every man a ransom for his soul unto the LORD, when thou numberest them; that there be no plague among them, when thou numberest them.

Exo|30|13| This they shall give, every one that passeth among them that are numbered, half a shekel after the shekel of the sanctuary: (a shekel is twenty gerahs:) an half shekel shall be the offering of the LORD.

Exo|30|14| Every one that passeth among them that are numbered, from twenty years old and above, shall give an offering unto the LORD.

Exo|30|15| The rich shall not give more, and the poor shall not give less than half a shekel, when they give an offering unto the LORD, to make an atonement for your souls.

Exo|30|16| And thou shalt take the atonement money of the children of Israel, and shalt appoint it for the service of the tabernacle of the congregation; that it may be a memorial unto the children of Israel before the LORD, to make an atonement for your souls.

Exo|30|17| And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

Exo|30|18| Thou shalt also make a laver of brass, and his foot also of brass, to wash withal: and thou shalt put it between the tabernacle of the congregation and the altar, and thou shalt put water therein.

Exo|30|19| For Aaron and his sons shall wash their hands and their feet thereat:

Exo|30|20| When they go into the tabernacle of the congregation, they shall wash with water, that they die not; or when they come near to the altar to minister, to burn offering made by fire unto the LORD:

Exo|30|21| So they shall wash their hands and their feet, that they die not: and it shall be a statute for ever to them, even to him and to his seed throughout their generations.

Exo|30|22| Moreover the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

Exo|30|23| Take thou also unto thee principal spices, of pure myrrh five hundred shekels, and of sweet cinnamon half so much, even two hundred and fifty shekels, and of sweet calamus two hundred and fifty shekels,

Exo|30|24| And of cassia five hundred shekels, after the shekel of the sanctuary, and of oil olive an hin:

Exo|30|25| And thou shalt make it an oil of holy ointment, an ointment compound after the art of the apothecary: it shall be an holy anointing oil.

Exo|30|26| And thou shalt anoint the tabernacle of the congregation therewith, and the ark of the testimony,

Exo|30|27| And the table and all his vessels, and the candlestick and his vessels, and the altar of incense,

Exo|30|28| And the altar of burnt offering with all his vessels, and the laver and his foot.

Exo|30|29| And thou shalt sanctify them, that they may be most holy: whatsoever toucheth them shall be holy.

Exo|30|30| And thou shalt anoint Aaron and his sons, and consecrate them, that they may minister unto me in the priest's office.

Exo|30|31| And thou shalt speak unto the children of Israel, saying, This shall be an holy anointing oil unto me throughout your generations.

Exo|30|32| Upon man's flesh shall it not be poured, neither shall ye make any other like it, after the composition of it: it is holy, and it shall be holy unto you.

Exo|30|33| Whosoever compoundeth any like it, or whosoever putteth any of it upon a stranger, shall even be cut off from his people.

Exo|30|34| And the LORD said unto Moses, Take unto thee sweet spices, stacte, and onycha, and galbanum; these sweet spices with pure frankincense: of each shall there be a like weight:

Exo|30|35| And thou shalt make it a perfume, a confection after the art of the apothecary, tempered together, pure and holy:

Exo|30|36| And thou shalt beat some of it very small, and put of it before the testimony in the tabernacle of the congregation, where I will meet with thee: it shall be unto you most holy.

Exo|30|37| And as for the perfume which thou shalt make, ye shall not make to yourselves according to the composition thereof: it shall be unto thee holy for the LORD.

Exo|30|38| Whosoever shall make like unto that, to smell thereto, shall even be cut off from his people.

Exo|31|1| And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

Exo|31|2| See, I have called by name Bezaleel the son of Uri, the son of Hur, of the tribe of Judah:

Exo|31|3| And I have filled him with the spirit of God, in wisdom, and in understanding, and in knowledge, and in all manner of workmanship,

Exo|31|4| To devise cunning works, to work in gold, and in silver, and in brass,

Exo|31|5| And in cutting of stones, to set them, and in carving of timber, to work in all manner of workmanship.

Exo|31|6| And I, behold, I have given with him Aholiab, the son of Ahisamach, of the tribe of Dan: and in the hearts of all that are wise hearted I have put wisdom, that they may make all that I have commanded thee;

Exo|31|7| The tabernacle of the congregation, and the ark of the testimony, and the mercy seat that is thereupon, and all the furniture of the tabernacle,

Exo|31|8| And the table and his furniture, and the pure candlestick with all his furniture, and the altar of incense,

Exo|31|9| And the altar of burnt offering with all his furniture, and the laver and his foot,

Exo|31|10| And the cloths of service, and the holy garments for Aaron the priest, and the garments of his sons, to minister in the priest's office,

Exo|31|11| And the anointing oil, and sweet incense for the holy place: according to all that I have commanded thee shall they do.

Exo|31|12| And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

Exo|31|13| Speak thou also unto the children of Israel, saying, Verily my sabbaths ye shall keep: for it is a sign between me and you throughout your generations; that ye may know that I am the LORD that doth sanctify you.

Exo|31|14| Ye shall keep the sabbath therefore; for it is holy unto you: every one that defileth it shall surely be put to death: for whosoever doeth any work therein, that soul shall be cut off from among his people.

Exo|31|15| Six days may work be done; but in the seventh is the sabbath of rest, holy to the LORD: whosoever doeth any work in the sabbath day, he shall surely be put to death.

Exo|31|16| Wherefore the children of Israel shall keep the sabbath, to observe the sabbath throughout their generations, for a perpetual covenant.

Exo|31|17| It is a sign between me and the children of Israel for ever: for in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, and on the seventh day he rested, and was refreshed.

Exo|31|18| And he gave unto Moses, when he had made an end of communing with him upon mount Sinai, two tables of testimony, tables of stone, written with the finger of God.

Exo|32|1| And when the people saw that Moses delayed to come down out of the mount, the people gathered themselves together unto Aaron, and said unto him, Up, make us gods, which shall go before us; for as for this Moses, the man that brought us up out of the land of Egypt, we wot not what is become of him.

Exo|32|2| And Aaron said unto them, Break off the golden earrings, which are in the ears of your wives, of your sons, and of your daughters, and bring them unto me.

Exo|32|3| And all the people brake off the golden earrings which were in their ears, and brought them unto Aaron.

Exo|32|4| And he received them at their hand, and fashioned it with a graving tool, after he had made it a molten calf: and they said, These be thy gods, O Israel, which brought thee up out of the land of Egypt.

Exo|32|5| And when Aaron saw it, he built an altar before it; and Aaron made proclamation, and said, To morrow is a feast to the LORD.

Exo|32|6| And they rose up early on the morrow, and offered burnt offerings, and brought peace offerings; and the people sat down to eat and to drink, and rose up to play.

Exo|32|7| And the LORD said unto Moses, Go, get thee down; for thy people, which thou broughtest out of the land of Egypt, have corrupted themselves:

Exo|32|8| They have turned aside quickly out of the way which I commanded them: they have made them a molten calf, and have worshipped it, and have sacrificed thereunto, and said, These be thy gods, O Israel, which have brought thee up out of the land of Egypt.

Exo|32|9| And the LORD said unto Moses, I have seen this people, and, behold, it is a stiffnecked people:

Exo|32|10| Now therefore let me alone, that my wrath may wax hot against them, and that I may consume them: and I will make of thee a great nation.

Exo|32|11| And Moses besought the LORD his God, and said, LORD, why doth thy wrath wax hot against thy people, which thou hast brought forth out of the land of Egypt with great power, and with a mighty hand?

Exo|32|12| Wherefore should the Egyptians speak, and say, For mischief did he bring them out, to slay them in the mountains, and to consume them from the face of the earth? Turn from thy fierce wrath, and repent of this evil against thy people.

Exo|32|13| Remember Abraham, Isaac, and Israel, thy servants, to whom thou swarest by thine own self, and saidst unto them, I will multiply your seed as the stars of heaven, and all this land that I have spoken of will I give unto your seed, and they shall inherit it for ever.

Exo|32|14| And the LORD repented of the evil which he thought to do unto his people.

Exo|32|15| And Moses turned, and went down from the mount, and the two tables of the testimony were in his hand: the tables were written on both their sides; on the one side and on the other were they written.

Exo|32|16| And the tables were the work of God, and the writing was the writing of God, graven upon the tables.

Exo|32|17| And when Joshua heard the noise of the people as they shouted, he said unto Moses, There is a noise of war in the camp.

Exo|32|18| And he said, It is not the voice of them that shout for mastery, neither is it the voice of them that cry for being overcome: but the noise of them that sing do I hear.

Exo|32|19| And it came to pass, as soon as he came nigh unto the camp, that he saw the calf, and the dancing: and Moses' anger waxed hot, and he cast the tables out of his hands, and brake them beneath the mount.

Exo|32|20| And he took the calf which they had made, and burnt it in the fire, and ground it to powder, and strawed it upon the water, and made the children of Israel drink of it.

Exo|32|21| And Moses said unto Aaron, What did this people unto thee, that thou hast brought so great a sin upon them?

Exo|32|22| And Aaron said, Let not the anger of my lord wax hot: thou knowest the people, that they are set on mischief.

Exo|32|23| For they said unto me, Make us gods, which shall go before us: for as for this Moses, the man that brought us up out of the land of Egypt, we wot not what is become of him.

Exo|32|24| And I said unto them, Whosoever hath any gold, let them break it off. So they gave it me: then I cast it into the fire, and there came out this calf.

Exo|32|25| And when Moses saw that the people were naked; (for Aaron had made them naked unto their shame among their enemies:)

Exo|32|26| Then Moses stood in the gate of the camp, and said, Who is on the LORD's side? let him come unto me. And all the sons of Levi gathered themselves together unto him.

Exo|32|27| And he said unto them, Thus saith the LORD God of Israel, Put every man his sword by his side, and go in and out from gate to gate throughout the camp, and slay every man his brother, and every man his companion, and every man his neighbour.

Exo|32|28| And the children of Levi did according to the word of Moses: and there fell of the people that day about three thousand men.

Exo|32|29| For Moses had said, Consecrate yourselves today to the LORD, even every man upon his son, and upon his brother; that he may bestow upon you a blessing this day.

Exo|32|30| And it came to pass on the morrow, that Moses said unto the people, Ye have sinned a great sin: and now I will go up unto the LORD; peradventure I shall make an atonement for your sin.

Exo|32|31| And Moses returned unto the LORD, and said, Oh, this people have sinned a great sin, and have made them gods of gold.

Exo|32|32| Yet now, if thou wilt forgive their sin--; and if not, blot me, I pray thee, out of thy book which thou hast written.

Exo|32|33| And the LORD said unto Moses, Whosoever hath sinned against me, him will I blot out of my book.

Exo|32|34| Therefore now go, lead the people unto the place of which I have spoken unto thee: behold, mine Angel shall go before thee: nevertheless in the day when I visit I will visit their sin upon them.

Exo|32|35| And the LORD plagued the people, because they made the calf, which Aaron made.

Exo|33|1| And the LORD said unto Moses, Depart, and go up hence, thou and the people which thou hast brought up out of the land of Egypt, unto the land which I sware unto Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, saying, Unto thy seed will I give it:

Exo|33|2| And I will send an angel before thee; and I will drive out the Canaanite, the Amorite, and the Hittite, and the Perizzite, the Hivite, and the Jebusite:

Exo|33|3| Unto a land flowing with milk and honey: for I will not go up in the midst of thee; for thou art a stiffnecked people: lest I consume thee in the way.

Exo|33|4| And when the people heard these evil tidings, they mourned: and no man did put on him his ornaments.

Exo|33|5| For the LORD had said unto Moses, Say unto the children of Israel, Ye are a stiffnecked people: I will come up into the midst of thee in a moment, and consume thee: therefore now put off thy ornaments from thee, that I may know what to do unto thee.

Exo|33|6| And the children of Israel stripped themselves of their ornaments by the mount Horeb.

Exo|33|7| And Moses took the tabernacle, and pitched it without the camp, afar off from the camp, and called it the Tabernacle of the congregation. And it came to pass, that every one which sought the LORD went out unto the tabernacle of the congregation, which was without the camp.

Exo|33|8| And it came to pass, when Moses went out unto the tabernacle, that all the people rose up, and stood every man at his tent door, and looked after Moses, until he was gone into the tabernacle.

Exo|33|9| And it came to pass, as Moses entered into the tabernacle, the cloudy pillar descended, and stood at the door of the tabernacle, and the Lord talked with Moses.

Exo|33|10| And all the people saw the cloudy pillar stand at the tabernacle door: and all the people rose up and worshipped, every man in his tent door.

Exo|33|11| And the LORD spake unto Moses face to face, as a man speaketh unto his friend. And he turned again into the camp: but his servant Joshua, the son of Nun, a young man, departed not out of the tabernacle.

Exo|33|12| And Moses said unto the LORD, See, thou sayest unto me, Bring up this people: and thou hast not let me know whom thou wilt send with me. Yet thou hast said, I know thee by name, and thou hast also found grace in my sight.

Exo|33|13| Now therefore, I pray thee, if I have found grace in thy sight, shew me now thy way, that I may know thee, that I may find grace in thy sight: and consider that this nation is thy people.

Exo|33|14| And he said, My presence shall go with thee, and I will give thee rest.

Exo|33|15| And he said unto him, If thy presence go not with me, carry us not up hence.

Exo|33|16| For wherein shall it be known here that I and thy people have found grace in thy sight? is it not in that thou goest with us? so shall we be separated, I and thy people, from all the people that are upon the face of the earth.

Exo|33|17| And the LORD said unto Moses, I will do this thing also that thou hast spoken: for thou hast found grace in my sight, and I know thee by name.

Exo|33|18| And he said, I beseech thee, shew me thy glory.

Exo|33|19| And he said, I will make all my goodness pass before thee, and I will proclaim the name of the LORD before thee; and will be gracious to whom I will be gracious, and will shew mercy on whom I will shew mercy.

Exo|33|20| And he said, Thou canst not see my face: for there shall no man see me, and live.

Exo|33|21| And the LORD said, Behold, there is a place by me, and thou shalt stand upon a rock:

Exo|33|22| And it shall come to pass, while my glory passeth by, that I will put thee in a clift of the rock, and will cover thee with my hand while I pass by:

Exo|33|23| And I will take away mine hand, and thou shalt see my back parts: but my face shall not be seen.

Exo|34|1| And the LORD said unto Moses, Hew thee two tables of stone like unto the first: and I will write upon these tables the words that were in the first tables, which thou brakest.

Exo|34|2| And be ready in the morning, and come up in the morning unto mount Sinai, and present thyself there to me in the top of the mount.

Exo|34|3| And no man shall come up with thee, neither let any man be seen throughout all the mount; neither let the flocks nor herds feed before that mount.

Exo|34|4| And he hewed two tables of stone like unto the first; and Moses rose up early in the morning, and went up unto mount Sinai, as the LORD had commanded him, and took in his hand the two tables of stone.

Exo|34|5| And the LORD descended in the cloud, and stood with him there, and proclaimed the name of the LORD.

Exo|34|6| And the LORD passed by before him, and proclaimed, The LORD, The LORD God, merciful and gracious, longsuffering, and abundant in goodness and truth,

Exo|34|7| Keeping mercy for thousands, forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin, and that will by no means clear the guilty; visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children, and upon the children's children, unto the third and to the fourth generation.

Exo|34|8| And Moses made haste, and bowed his head toward the earth, and worshipped.

Exo|34|9| And he said, If now I have found grace in thy sight, O LORD, let my LORD, I pray thee, go among us; for it is a stiffnecked people; and pardon our iniquity and our sin, and take us for thine inheritance.

Exo|34|10| And he said, Behold, I make a covenant: before all thy people I will do marvels, such as have not been done in all the earth, nor in any nation: and all the people among which thou art shall see the work of the LORD: for it is a terrible thing that I will do with thee.

Exo|34|11| Observe thou that which I command thee this day: behold, I drive out before thee the Amorite, and the Canaanite, and the Hittite, and the Perizzite, and the Hivite, and the Jebusite.

Exo|34|12| Take heed to thyself, lest thou make a covenant with the inhabitants of the land whither thou goest, lest it be for a snare in the midst of thee:

Exo|34|13| But ye shall destroy their altars, break their images, and cut down their groves:

Exo|34|14| For thou shalt worship no other god: for the LORD, whose name is Jealous, is a jealous God:

Exo|34|15| Lest thou make a covenant with the inhabitants of the land, and they go a whoring after their gods, and do sacrifice unto their gods, and one call thee, and thou eat of his sacrifice;

Exo|34|16| And thou take of their daughters unto thy sons, and their daughters go a whoring after their gods, and make thy sons go a whoring after their gods.

Exo|34|17| Thou shalt make thee no molten gods.

Exo|34|18| The feast of unleavened bread shalt thou keep. Seven days thou shalt eat unleavened bread, as I commanded thee, in the time of the month Abib: for in the month Abib thou camest out from Egypt.

Exo|34|19| All that openeth the matrix is mine; and every firstling among thy cattle, whether ox or sheep, that is male.

Exo|34|20| But the firstling of an ass thou shalt redeem with a lamb: and if thou redeem him not, then shalt thou break his neck. All the firstborn of thy sons thou shalt redeem. And none shall appear before me empty.

Exo|34|21| Six days thou shalt work, but on the seventh day thou shalt rest: in earing time and in harvest thou shalt rest.

Exo|34|22| And thou shalt observe the feast of weeks, of the firstfruits of wheat harvest, and the feast of ingathering at the year's end.

Exo|34|23| Thrice in the year shall all your menchildren appear before the LORD God, the God of Israel.

Exo|34|24| For I will cast out the nations before thee, and enlarge thy borders: neither shall any man desire thy land, when thou shalt go up to appear before the LORD thy God thrice in the year.

Exo|34|25| Thou shalt not offer the blood of my sacrifice with leaven; neither shall the sacrifice of the feast of the passover be left unto the morning.

Exo|34|26| The first of the firstfruits of thy land thou shalt bring unto the house of the LORD thy God. Thou shalt not seethe a kid in his mother's milk.

Exo|34|27| And the LORD said unto Moses, Write thou these words: for after the tenor of these words I have made a covenant with thee and with Israel.

Exo|34|28| And he was there with the LORD forty days and forty nights; he did neither eat bread, nor drink water. And he wrote upon the tables the words of the covenant, the ten commandments.

Exo|34|29| And it came to pass, when Moses came down from mount Sinai with the two tables of testimony in Moses' hand, when he came down from the mount, that Moses wist not that the skin of his face shone while he talked with him.

Exo|34|30| And when Aaron and all the children of Israel saw Moses, behold, the skin of his face shone; and they were afraid to come nigh him.

Exo|34|31| And Moses called unto them; and Aaron and all the rulers of the congregation returned unto him: and Moses talked with them.

Exo|34|32| And afterward all the children of Israel came nigh: and he gave them in commandment all that the LORD had spoken with him in mount Sinai.

Exo|34|33| And till Moses had done speaking with them, he put a vail on his face.

Exo|34|34| But when Moses went in before the LORD to speak with him, he took the vail off, until he came out. And he came out, and spake unto the children of Israel that which he was commanded.

Exo|34|35| And the children of Israel saw the face of Moses, that the skin of Moses' face shone: and Moses put the vail upon his face again, until he went in to speak with him.

Exo|35|1| And Moses gathered all the congregation of the children of Israel together, and said unto them, These are the words which the LORD hath commanded, that ye should do them.

Exo|35|2| Six days shall work be done, but on the seventh day there shall be to you an holy day, a sabbath of rest to the LORD: whosoever doeth work therein shall be put to death.

Exo|35|3| Ye shall kindle no fire throughout your habitations upon the sabbath day.

Exo|35|4| And Moses spake unto all the congregation of the children of Israel, saying, This is the thing which the LORD commanded, saying,

Exo|35|5| Take ye from among you an offering unto the LORD: whosoever is of a willing heart, let him bring it, an offering of the LORD; gold, and silver, and brass,

Exo|35|6| And blue, and purple, and scarlet, and fine linen, and goats' hair,

Exo|35|7| And rams' skins dyed red, and badgers' skins, and shittim wood,

Exo|35|8| And oil for the light, and spices for anointing oil, and for the sweet incense,

Exo|35|9| And onyx stones, and stones to be set for the ephod, and for the breastplate.

Exo|35|10| And every wise hearted among you shall come, and make all that the LORD hath commanded;

Exo|35|11| The tabernacle, his tent, and his covering, his taches, and his boards, his bars, his pillars, and his sockets,

Exo|35|12| The ark, and the staves thereof, with the mercy seat, and the vail of the covering,

Exo|35|13| The table, and his staves, and all his vessels, and the shewbread,

Exo|35|14| The candlestick also for the light, and his furniture, and his lamps, with the oil for the light,

Exo|35|15| And the incense altar, and his staves, and the anointing oil, and the sweet incense, and the hanging for the door at the entering in of the tabernacle,

Exo|35|16| The altar of burnt offering, with his brasen grate, his staves, and all his vessels, the laver and his foot,

Exo|35|17| The hangings of the court, his pillars, and their sockets, and the hanging for the door of the court,

Exo|35|18| The pins of the tabernacle, and the pins of the court, and their cords,

Exo|35|19| The cloths of service, to do service in the holy place, the holy garments for Aaron the priest, and the garments of his sons, to minister in the priest's office.

Exo|35|20| And all the congregation of the children of Israel departed from the presence of Moses.

Exo|35|21| And they came, every one whose heart stirred him up, and every one whom his spirit made willing, and they brought the LORD's offering to the work of the tabernacle of the congregation, and for all his service, and for the holy garments.

Exo|35|22| And they came, both men and women, as many as were willing hearted, and brought bracelets, and earrings, and rings, and tablets, all jewels of gold: and every man that offered offered an offering of gold unto the LORD.

Exo|35|23| And every man, with whom was found blue, and purple, and scarlet, and fine linen, and goats' hair, and red skins of rams, and badgers' skins, brought them.

Exo|35|24| Every one that did offer an offering of silver and brass brought the LORD's offering: and every man, with whom was found shittim wood for any work of the service, brought it.

Exo|35|25| And all the women that were wise hearted did spin with their hands, and brought that which they had spun, both of blue, and of purple, and of scarlet, and of fine linen.

Exo|35|26| And all the women whose heart stirred them up in wisdom spun goats' hair.

Exo|35|27| And the rulers brought onyx stones, and stones to be set, for the ephod, and for the breastplate;

Exo|35|28| And spice, and oil for the light, and for the anointing oil, and for the sweet incense.

Exo|35|29| The children of Israel brought a willing offering unto the LORD, every man and woman, whose heart made them willing to bring for all manner of work, which the LORD had commanded to be made by the hand of Moses.

Exo|35|30| And Moses said unto the children of Israel, See, the LORD hath called by name Bezaleel the son of Uri, the son of Hur, of the tribe of Judah;

Exo|35|31| And he hath filled him with the spirit of God, in wisdom, in understanding, and in knowledge, and in all manner of workmanship;

Exo|35|32| And to devise curious works, to work in gold, and in silver, and in brass,

Exo|35|33| And in the cutting of stones, to set them, and in carving of wood, to make any manner of cunning work.

Exo|35|34| And he hath put in his heart that he may teach, both he, and Aholiab, the son of Ahisamach, of the tribe of Dan.

Exo|35|35| Them hath he filled with wisdom of heart, to work all manner of work, of the engraver, and of the cunning workman, and of the embroiderer, in blue, and in purple, in scarlet, and in fine linen, and of the weaver, even of them that do any work, and of those that devise cunning work.

Exo|36|1| Then wrought Bezaleel and Aholiab, and every wise hearted man, in whom the LORD put wisdom and understanding to know how to work all manner of work for the service of the sanctuary, according to all that the LORD had commanded.

Exo|36|2| And Moses called Bezaleel and Aholiab, and every wise hearted man, in whose heart the LORD had put wisdom, even every one whose heart stirred him up to come unto the work to do it:

Exo|36|3| And they received of Moses all the offering, which the children of Israel had brought for the work of the service of the sanctuary, to make it withal. And they brought yet unto him free offerings every morning.

Exo|36|4| And all the wise men, that wrought all the work of the sanctuary, came every man from his work which they made;

Exo|36|5| And they spake unto Moses, saying, The people bring much more than enough for the service of the work, which the LORD commanded to make.

Exo|36|6| And Moses gave commandment, and they caused it to be proclaimed throughout the camp, saying, Let neither man nor woman make any more work for the offering of the sanctuary. So the people were restrained from bringing.

Exo|36|7| For the stuff they had was sufficient for all the work to make it, and too much.

Exo|36|8| And every wise hearted man among them that wrought the work of the tabernacle made ten curtains of fine twined linen, and blue, and purple, and scarlet: with cherubims of cunning work made he them.

Exo|36|9| The length of one curtain was twenty and eight cubits, and the breadth of one curtain four cubits: the curtains were all of one size.

Exo|36|10| And he coupled the five curtains one unto another: and the other five curtains he coupled one unto another.

Exo|36|11| And he made loops of blue on the edge of one curtain from the selvedge in the coupling: likewise he made in the uttermost side of another curtain, in the coupling of the second.

Exo|36|12| Fifty loops made he in one curtain, and fifty loops made he in the edge of the curtain which was in the coupling of the second: the loops held one curtain to another.

Exo|36|13| And he made fifty taches of gold, and coupled the curtains one unto another with the taches: so it became one tabernacle.

Exo|36|14| And he made curtains of goats' hair for the tent over the tabernacle: eleven curtains he made them.

Exo|36|15| The length of one curtain was thirty cubits, and four cubits was the breadth of one curtain: the eleven curtains were of one size.

Exo|36|16| And he coupled five curtains by themselves, and six curtains by themselves.

Exo|36|17| And he made fifty loops upon the uttermost edge of the curtain in the coupling, and fifty loops made he upon the edge of the curtain which coupleth the second.

Exo|36|18| And he made fifty taches of brass to couple the tent together, that it might be one.

Exo|36|19| And he made a covering for the tent of rams' skins dyed red, and a covering of badgers' skins above that.

Exo|36|20| And he made boards for the tabernacle of shittim wood, standing up.

Exo|36|21| The length of a board was ten cubits, and the breadth of a board one cubit and a half.

Exo|36|22| One board had two tenons, equally distant one from another: thus did he make for all the boards of the tabernacle.

Exo|36|23| And he made boards for the tabernacle; twenty boards for the south side southward:

Exo|36|24| And forty sockets of silver he made under the twenty boards; two sockets under one board for his two tenons, and two sockets under another board for his two tenons.

Exo|36|25| And for the other side of the tabernacle, which is toward the north corner, he made twenty boards,

Exo|36|26| And their forty sockets of silver; two sockets under one board, and two sockets under another board.

Exo|36|27| And for the sides of the tabernacle westward he made six boards.

Exo|36|28| And two boards made he for the corners of the tabernacle in the two sides.

Exo|36|29| And they were coupled beneath, and coupled together at the head thereof, to one ring: thus he did to both of them in both the corners.

Exo|36|30| And there were eight boards; and their sockets were sixteen sockets of silver, under every board two sockets.

Exo|36|31| And he made bars of shittim wood; five for the boards of the one side of the tabernacle,

Exo|36|32| And five bars for the boards of the other side of the tabernacle, and five bars for the boards of the tabernacle for the sides westward.

Exo|36|33| And he made the middle bar to shoot through the boards from the one end to the other.

Exo|36|34| And he overlaid the boards with gold, and made their rings of gold to be places for the bars, and overlaid the bars with gold.

Exo|36|35| And he made a vail of blue, and purple, and scarlet, and fine twined linen: with cherubims made he it of cunning work.

Exo|36|36| And he made thereunto four pillars of shittim wood, and overlaid them with gold: their hooks were of gold; and he cast for them four sockets of silver.

Exo|36|37| And he made an hanging for the tabernacle door of blue, and purple, and scarlet, and fine twined linen, of needlework;

Exo|36|38| And the five pillars of it with their hooks: and he overlaid their chapiters and their fillets with gold: but their five sockets were of brass.

Exo|37|1| And Bezaleel made the ark of shittim wood: two cubits and a half was the length of it, and a cubit and a half the breadth of it, and a cubit and a half the height of it:

Exo|37|2| And he overlaid it with pure gold within and without, and made a crown of gold to it round about.

Exo|37|3| And he cast for it four rings of gold, to be set by the four corners of it; even two rings upon the one side of it, and two rings upon the other side of it.

Exo|37|4| And he made staves of shittim wood, and overlaid them with gold.

Exo|37|5| And he put the staves into the rings by the sides of the ark, to bear the ark.

Exo|37|6| And he made the mercy seat of pure gold: two cubits and a half was the length thereof, and one cubit and a half the breadth thereof.

Exo|37|7| And he made two cherubims of gold, beaten out of one piece made he them, on the two ends of the mercy seat;

Exo|37|8| One cherub on the end on this side, and another cherub on the other end on that side: out of the mercy seat made he the cherubims on the two ends thereof.

Exo|37|9| And the cherubims spread out their wings on high, and covered with their wings over the mercy seat, with their faces one to another; even to the mercy seatward were the faces of the cherubims.

Exo|37|10| And he made the table of shittim wood: two cubits was the length thereof, and a cubit the breadth thereof, and a cubit and a half the height thereof:

Exo|37|11| And he overlaid it with pure gold, and made thereunto a crown of gold round about.

Exo|37|12| Also he made thereunto a border of an handbreadth round about; and made a crown of gold for the border thereof round about.

Exo|37|13| And he cast for it four rings of gold, and put the rings upon the four corners that were in the four feet thereof.

Exo|37|14| Over against the border were the rings, the places for the staves to bear the table.

Exo|37|15| And he made the staves of shittim wood, and overlaid them with gold, to bear the table.

Exo|37|16| And he made the vessels which were upon the table, his dishes, and his spoons, and his bowls, and his covers to cover withal, of pure gold.

Exo|37|17| And he made the candlestick of pure gold: of beaten work made he the candlestick; his shaft, and his branch, his bowls, his knops, and his flowers, were of the same:

Exo|37|18| And six branches going out of the sides thereof; three branches of the candlestick out of the one side thereof, and three branches of the candlestick out of the other side thereof:

Exo|37|19| Three bowls made after the fashion of almonds in one branch, a knop and a flower; and three bowls made like almonds in another branch, a knop and a flower: so throughout the six branches going out of the candlestick.

Exo|37|20| And in the candlestick were four bowls made like almonds, his knops, and his flowers:

Exo|37|21| And a knop under two branches of the same, and a knop under two branches of the same, and a knop under two branches of the same, according to the six branches going out of it.

Exo|37|22| Their knops and their branches were of the same: all of it was one beaten work of pure gold.

Exo|37|23| And he made his seven lamps, and his snuffers, and his snuffdishes, of pure gold.

Exo|37|24| Of a talent of pure gold made he it, and all the vessels thereof.

Exo|37|25| And he made the incense altar of shittim wood: the length of it was a cubit, and the breadth of it a cubit; it was foursquare; and two cubits was the height of it; the horns thereof were of the same.

Exo|37|26| And he overlaid it with pure gold, both the top of it, and the sides thereof round about, and the horns of it: also he made unto it a crown of gold round about.

Exo|37|27| And he made two rings of gold for it under the crown thereof, by the two corners of it, upon the two sides thereof, to be places for the staves to bear it withal.

Exo|37|28| And he made the staves of shittim wood, and overlaid them with gold.

Exo|37|29| And he made the holy anointing oil, and the pure incense of sweet spices, according to the work of the apothecary.

Exo|38|1| And he made the altar of burnt offering of shittim wood: five cubits was the length thereof, and five cubits the breadth thereof; it was foursquare; and three cubits the height thereof.

Exo|38|2| And he made the horns thereof on the four corners of it; the horns thereof were of the same: and he overlaid it with brass.

Exo|38|3| And he made all the vessels of the altar, the pots, and the shovels, and the basons, and the fleshhooks, and the firepans: all the vessels thereof made he of brass.

Exo|38|4| And he made for the altar a brasen grate of network under the compass thereof beneath unto the midst of it.

Exo|38|5| And he cast four rings for the four ends of the grate of brass, to be places for the staves.

Exo|38|6| And he made the staves of shittim wood, and overlaid them with brass.

Exo|38|7| And he put the staves into the rings on the sides of the altar, to bear it withal; he made the altar hollow with boards.

Exo|38|8| And he made the laver of brass, and the foot of it of brass, of the lookingglasses of the women assembling, which assembled at the door of the tabernacle of the congregation.

Exo|38|9| And he made the court: on the south side southward the hangings of the court were of fine twined linen, an hundred cubits:

Exo|38|10| Their pillars were twenty, and their brasen sockets twenty; the hooks of the pillars and their fillets were of silver.

Exo|38|11| And for the north side the hangings were an hundred cubits, their pillars were twenty, and their sockets of brass twenty; the hooks of the pillars and their fillets of silver.

Exo|38|12| And for the west side were hangings of fifty cubits, their pillars ten, and their sockets ten; the hooks of the pillars and their fillets of silver.

Exo|38|13| And for the east side eastward fifty cubits.

Exo|38|14| The hangings of the one side of the gate were fifteen cubits; their pillars three, and their sockets three.

Exo|38|15| And for the other side of the court gate, on this hand and that hand, were hangings of fifteen cubits; their pillars three, and their sockets three.

Exo|38|16| All the hangings of the court round about were of fine twined linen.

Exo|38|17| And the sockets for the pillars were of brass; the hooks of the pillars and their fillets of silver; and the overlaying of their chapiters of silver; and all the pillars of the court were filleted with silver.

Exo|38|18| And the hanging for the gate of the court was needlework, of blue, and purple, and scarlet, and fine twined linen: and twenty cubits was the length, and the height in the breadth was five cubits, answerable to the hangings of the court.

Exo|38|19| And their pillars were four, and their sockets of brass four; their hooks of silver, and the overlaying of their chapiters and their fillets of silver.

Exo|38|20| And all the pins of the tabernacle, and of the court round about, were of brass.

Exo|38|21| This is the sum of the tabernacle, even of the tabernacle of testimony, as it was counted, according to the commandment of Moses, for the service of the Levites, by the hand of Ithamar, son to Aaron the priest.

Exo|38|22| And Bezaleel the son Uri, the son of Hur, of the tribe of Judah, made all that the LORD commanded Moses.

Exo|38|23| And with him was Aholiab, son of Ahisamach, of the tribe of Dan, an engraver, and a cunning workman, and an embroiderer in blue, and in purple, and in scarlet, and fine linen.

Exo|38|24| All the gold that was occupied for the work in all the work of the holy place, even the gold of the offering, was twenty and nine talents, and seven hundred and thirty shekels, after the shekel of the sanctuary.

Exo|38|25| And the silver of them that were numbered of the congregation was an hundred talents, and a thousand seven hundred and threescore and fifteen shekels, after the shekel of the sanctuary:

Exo|38|26| A bekah for every man, that is, half a shekel, after the shekel of the sanctuary, for every one that went to be numbered, from twenty years old and upward, for six hundred thousand and three thousand and five hundred and fifty men.

Exo|38|27| And of the hundred talents of silver were cast the sockets of the sanctuary, and the sockets of the vail; an hundred sockets of the hundred talents, a talent for a socket.

Exo|38|28| And of the thousand seven hundred seventy and five shekels he made hooks for the pillars, and overlaid their chapiters, and filleted them.

Exo|38|29| And the brass of the offering was seventy talents, and two thousand and four hundred shekels.

Exo|38|30| And therewith he made the sockets to the door of the tabernacle of the congregation, and the brasen altar, and the brasen grate for it, and all the vessels of the altar,

Exo|38|31| And the sockets of the court round about, and the sockets of the court gate, and all the pins of the tabernacle, and all the pins of the court round about.

Exo|39|1| And of the blue, and purple, and scarlet, they made cloths of service, to do service in the holy place, and made the holy garments for Aaron; as the LORD commanded Moses.

Exo|39|2| And he made the ephod of gold, blue, and purple, and scarlet, and fine twined linen.

Exo|39|3| And they did beat the gold into thin plates, and cut it into wires, to work it in the blue, and in the purple, and in the scarlet, and in the fine linen, with cunning work.

Exo|39|4| They made shoulderpieces for it, to couple it together: by the two edges was it coupled together.

Exo|39|5| And the curious girdle of his ephod, that was upon it, was of the same, according to the work thereof; of gold, blue, and purple, and scarlet, and fine twined linen; as the LORD commanded Moses.

Exo|39|6| And they wrought onyx stones inclosed in ouches of gold, graven, as signets are graven, with the names of the children of Israel.

Exo|39|7| And he put them on the shoulders of the ephod, that they should be stones for a memorial to the children of Israel; as the LORD commanded Moses.

Exo|39|8| And he made the breastplate of cunning work, like the work of the ephod; of gold, blue, and purple, and scarlet, and fine twined linen.

Exo|39|9| It was foursquare; they made the breastplate double: a span was the length thereof, and a span the breadth thereof, being doubled.

Exo|39|10| And they set in it four rows of stones: the first row was a sardius, a topaz, and a carbuncle: this was the first row.

Exo|39|11| And the second row, an emerald, a sapphire, and a diamond.

Exo|39|12| And the third row, a ligure, an agate, and an amethyst.

Exo|39|13| And the fourth row, a beryl, an onyx, and a jasper: they were inclosed in ouches of gold in their inclosings.

Exo|39|14| And the stones were according to the names of the children of Israel, twelve, according to their names, like the engravings of a signet, every one with his name, according to the twelve tribes.

Exo|39|15| And they made upon the breastplate chains at the ends, of wreathen work of pure gold.

Exo|39|16| And they made two ouches of gold, and two gold rings; and put the two rings in the two ends of the breastplate.

Exo|39|17| And they put the two wreathen chains of gold in the two rings on the ends of the breastplate.

Exo|39|18| And the two ends of the two wreathen chains they fastened in the two ouches, and put them on the shoulderpieces of the ephod, before it.

Exo|39|19| And they made two rings of gold, and put them on the two ends of the breastplate, upon the border of it, which was on the side of the ephod inward.

Exo|39|20| And they made two other golden rings, and put them on the two sides of the ephod underneath, toward the forepart of it, over against the other coupling thereof, above the curious girdle of the ephod.

Exo|39|21| And they did bind the breastplate by his rings unto the rings of the ephod with a lace of blue, that it might be above the curious girdle of the ephod, and that the breastplate might not be loosed from the ephod; as the LORD commanded Moses.

Exo|39|22| And he made the robe of the ephod of woven work, all of blue.

Exo|39|23| And there was an hole in the midst of the robe, as the hole of an habergeon, with a band round about the hole, that it should not rend.

Exo|39|24| And they made upon the hems of the robe pomegranates of blue, and purple, and scarlet, and twined linen.

Exo|39|25| And they made bells of pure gold, and put the bells between the pomegranates upon the hem of the robe, round about between the pomegranates;

Exo|39|26| A bell and a pomegranate, a bell and a pomegranate, round about the hem of the robe to minister in; as the LORD commanded Moses.

Exo|39|27| And they made coats of fine linen of woven work for Aaron, and for his sons,

Exo|39|28| And a mitre of fine linen, and goodly bonnets of fine linen, and linen breeches of fine twined linen,

Exo|39|29| And a girdle of fine twined linen, and blue, and purple, and scarlet, of needlework; as the LORD commanded Moses.

Exo|39|30| And they made the plate of the holy crown of pure gold, and wrote upon it a writing, like to the engravings of a signet, HOLINESS TO THE LORD.

Exo|39|31| And they tied unto it a lace of blue, to fasten it on high upon the mitre; as the LORD commanded Moses.

Exo|39|32| Thus was all the work of the tabernacle of the tent of the congregation finished: and the children of Israel did according to all that the LORD commanded Moses, so did they.

Exo|39|33| And they brought the tabernacle unto Moses, the tent, and all his furniture, his taches, his boards, his bars, and his pillars, and his sockets,

Exo|39|34| And the covering of rams' skins dyed red, and the covering of badgers' skins, and the vail of the covering,

Exo|39|35| The ark of the testimony, and the staves thereof, and the mercy seat,

Exo|39|36| The table, and all the vessels thereof, and the shewbread,

Exo|39|37| The pure candlestick, with the lamps thereof, even with the lamps to be set in order, and all the vessels thereof, and the oil for light,

Exo|39|38| And the golden altar, and the anointing oil, and the sweet incense, and the hanging for the tabernacle door,

Exo|39|39| The brasen altar, and his grate of brass, his staves, and all his vessels, the laver and his foot,

Exo|39|40| The hangings of the court, his pillars, and his sockets, and the hanging for the court gate, his cords, and his pins, and all the vessels of the service of the tabernacle, for the tent of the congregation,

Exo|39|41| The cloths of service to do service in the holy place, and the holy garments for Aaron the priest, and his sons' garments, to minister in the priest's office.

Exo|39|42| According to all that the LORD commanded Moses, so the children of Israel made all the work.

Exo|39|43| And Moses did look upon all the work, and, behold, they had done it as the LORD had commanded, even so had they done it: and Moses blessed them.

Exo|40|1| And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

Exo|40|2| On the first day of the first month shalt thou set up the tabernacle of the tent of the congregation.

Exo|40|3| And thou shalt put therein the ark of the testimony, and cover the ark with the vail.

Exo|40|4| And thou shalt bring in the table, and set in order the things that are to be set in order upon it; and thou shalt bring in the candlestick, and light the lamps thereof.

Exo|40|5| And thou shalt set the altar of gold for the incense before the ark of the testimony, and put the hanging of the door to the tabernacle.

Exo|40|6| And thou shalt set the altar of the burnt offering before the door of the tabernacle of the tent of the congregation.

Exo|40|7| And thou shalt set the laver between the tent of the congregation and the altar, and shalt put water therein.

Exo|40|8| And thou shalt set up the court round about, and hang up the hanging at the court gate.

Exo|40|9| And thou shalt take the anointing oil, and anoint the tabernacle, and all that is therein, and shalt hallow it, and all the vessels thereof: and it shall be holy.

Exo|40|10| And thou shalt anoint the altar of the burnt offering, and all his vessels, and sanctify the altar: and it shall be an altar most holy.

Exo|40|11| And thou shalt anoint the laver and his foot, and sanctify it.

Exo|40|12| And thou shalt bring Aaron and his sons unto the door of the tabernacle of the congregation, and wash them with water.

Exo|40|13| And thou shalt put upon Aaron the holy garments, and anoint him, and sanctify him; that he may minister unto me in the priest's office.

Exo|40|14| And thou shalt bring his sons, and clothe them with coats:

Exo|40|15| And thou shalt anoint them, as thou didst anoint their father, that they may minister unto me in the priest's office: for their anointing shall surely be an everlasting priesthood throughout their generations.

Exo|40|16| Thus did Moses: according to all that the LORD commanded him, so did he.

Exo|40|17| And it came to pass in the first month in the second year, on the first day of the month, that the tabernacle was reared up.

Exo|40|18| And Moses reared up the tabernacle, and fastened his sockets, and set up the boards thereof, and put in the bars thereof, and reared up his pillars.

Exo|40|19| And he spread abroad the tent over the tabernacle, and put the covering of the tent above upon it; as the LORD commanded Moses.

Exo|40|20| And he took and put the testimony into the ark, and set the staves on the ark, and put the mercy seat above upon the ark:

Exo|40|21| And he brought the ark into the tabernacle, and set up the vail of the covering, and covered the ark of the testimony; as the LORD commanded Moses.

Exo|40|22| And he put the table in the tent of the congregation, upon the side of the tabernacle northward, without the vail.

Exo|40|23| And he set the bread in order upon it before the LORD; as the LORD had commanded Moses.

Exo|40|24| And he put the candlestick in the tent of the congregation, over against the table, on the side of the tabernacle southward.

Exo|40|25| And he lighted the lamps before the LORD; as the LORD commanded Moses.

Exo|40|26| And he put the golden altar in the tent of the congregation before the vail:

Exo|40|27| And he burnt sweet incense thereon; as the LORD commanded Moses.

Exo|40|28| And he set up the hanging at the door of the tabernacle.

Exo|40|29| And he put the altar of burnt offering by the door of the tabernacle of the tent of the congregation, and offered upon it the burnt offering and the meat offering; as the LORD commanded Moses.

Exo|40|30| And he set the laver between the tent of the congregation and the altar, and put water there, to wash withal.

Exo|40|31| And Moses and Aaron and his sons washed their hands and their feet thereat:

Exo|40|32| When they went into the tent of the congregation, and when they came near unto the altar, they washed; as the LORD commanded Moses.

Exo|40|33| And he reared up the court round about the tabernacle and the altar, and set up the hanging of the court gate. So Moses finished the work.

Exo|40|34| Then a cloud covered the tent of the congregation, and the glory of the LORD filled the tabernacle.

Exo|40|35| And Moses was not able to enter into the tent of the congregation, because the cloud abode thereon, and the glory of the LORD filled the tabernacle.

Exo|40|36| And when the cloud was taken up from over the tabernacle, the children of Israel went onward in all their journeys:

Exo|40|37| But if the cloud were not taken up, then they journeyed not till the day that it was taken up.

Exo|40|38| For the cloud of the LORD was upon the tabernacle by day, and fire was on it by night, in the sight of all the house of Israel, throughout all their journeys.

Mat|1|1| The book of the generation of Jesus Christ, the son of David, the son of Abraham.

Mat|1|2| Abraham begat Isaac; and Isaac begat Jacob; and Jacob begat Judas and his brethren;

Mat|1|3| And Judas begat Phares and Zara of Thamar; and Phares begat Esrom; and Esrom begat Aram;

Mat|1|4| And Aram begat Aminadab; and Aminadab begat Naasson; and Naasson begat Salmon;

Mat|1|5| And Salmon begat Booz of Rachab; and Booz begat Obed of Ruth; and Obed begat Jesse;

Mat|1|6| And Jesse begat David the king; and David the king begat Solomon of her that had been the wife of Urias;

Mat|1|7| And Solomon begat Roboam; and Roboam begat Abia; and Abia begat Asa;

Mat|1|8| And Asa begat Josaphat; and Josaphat begat Joram; and Joram begat Ozias;

Mat|1|9| And Ozias begat Joatham; and Joatham begat Achaz; and Achaz begat Ezekias;

Mat|1|10| And Ezekias begat Manasses; and Manasses begat Amon; and Amon begat Josias;

Mat|1|11| And Josias begat Jechonias and his brethren, about the time they were carried away to Babylon:

Mat|1|12| And after they were brought to Babylon, Jechonias begat Salathiel; and Salathiel begat Zorobabel;

Mat|1|13| And Zorobabel begat Abiud; and Abiud begat Eliakim; and Eliakim begat Azor;

Mat|1|14| And Azor begat Sadoc; and Sadoc begat Achim; and Achim begat Eliud;

Mat|1|15| And Eliud begat Eleazar; and Eleazar begat Matthan; and Matthan begat Jacob;

Mat|1|16| And Jacob begat Joseph the husband of Mary, of whom was born Jesus, who is called Christ.

Mat|1|17| So all the generations from Abraham to David are fourteen generations; and from David until the carrying away into Babylon are fourteen generations; and from the carrying away into Babylon unto Christ are fourteen generations.

Mat|1|18| Now the birth of Jesus Christ was on this wise: When as his mother Mary was espoused to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child of the Holy Ghost.

Mat|1|19| Then Joseph her husband, being a just man, and not willing to make her a publick example, was minded to put her away privily.

Mat|1|20| But while he thought on these things, behold, the angel of the LORD appeared unto him in a dream, saying, Joseph, thou son of David, fear not to take unto thee Mary thy wife: for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Ghost.

Mat|1|21| And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins.

Mat|1|22| Now all this was done, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet, saying,

Mat|1|23| Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us.

Mat|1|24| Then Joseph being raised from sleep did as the angel of the Lord had bidden him, and took unto him his wife:

Mat|1|25| And knew her not till she had brought forth her firstborn son: and he called his name JESUS.

Mat|2|1| Now when Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judaea in the days of Herod the king, behold, there came wise men from the east to Jerusalem,

Mat|2|2| Saying, Where is he that is born King of the Jews? for we have seen his star in the east, and are come to worship him.

Mat|2|3| When Herod the king had heard these things, he was troubled, and all Jerusalem with him.

Mat|2|4| And when he had gathered all the chief priests and scribes of the people together, he demanded of them where Christ should be born.

Mat|2|5| And they said unto him, In Bethlehem of Judaea: for thus it is written by the prophet,

Mat|2|6| And thou Bethlehem, in the land of Juda, art not the least among the princes of Juda: for out of thee shall come a Governor, that shall rule my people Israel.

Mat|2|7| Then Herod, when he had privily called the wise men, enquired of them diligently what time the star appeared.

Mat|2|8| And he sent them to Bethlehem, and said, Go and search diligently for the young child; and when ye have found him, bring me word again, that I may come and worship him also.

Mat|2|9| When they had heard the king, they departed; and, lo, the star, which they saw in the east, went before them, till it came and stood over where the young child was.

Mat|2|10| When they saw the star, they rejoiced with exceeding great joy.

Mat|2|11| And when they were come into the house, they saw the young child with Mary his mother, and fell down, and worshipped him: and when they had opened their treasures, they presented unto him gifts; gold, and frankincense and myrrh.

Mat|2|12| And being warned of God in a dream that they should not return to Herod, they departed into their own country another way.

Mat|2|13| And when they were departed, behold, the angel of the Lord appeareth to Joseph in a dream, saying, Arise, and take the young child and his mother, and flee into Egypt, and be thou there until I bring thee word: for Herod will seek the young child to destroy him.

Mat|2|14| When he arose, he took the young child and his mother by night, and departed into Egypt:

Mat|2|15| And was there until the death of Herod: that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet, saying, Out of Egypt have I called my son.

Mat|2|16| Then Herod, when he saw that he was mocked of the wise men, was exceeding wroth, and sent forth, and slew all the children that were in Bethlehem, and in all the coasts thereof, from two years old and under, according to the time which he had diligently enquired of the wise men.

Mat|2|17| Then was fulfilled that which was spoken by Jeremy the prophet, saying,

Mat|2|18| In Rama was there a voice heard, lamentation, and weeping, and great mourning, Rachel weeping for her children, and would not be comforted, because they are not.

Mat|2|19| But when Herod was dead, behold, an angel of the Lord appeareth in a dream to Joseph in Egypt,

Mat|2|20| Saying, Arise, and take the young child and his mother, and go into the land of Israel: for they are dead which sought the young child's life.

Mat|2|21| And he arose, and took the young child and his mother, and came into the land of Israel.

Mat|2|22| But when he heard that Archelaus did reign in Judaea in the room of his father Herod, he was afraid to go thither: notwithstanding, being warned of God in a dream, he turned aside into the parts of Galilee:

Mat|2|23| And he came and dwelt in a city called Nazareth: that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophets, He shall be called a Nazarene.

Mat|3|1| In those days came John the Baptist, preaching in the wilderness of Judaea,

Mat|3|2| And saying, Repent ye: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.

Mat|3|3| For this is he that was spoken of by the prophet Esaias, saying, The voice of one crying in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the Lord, make his paths straight.

Mat|3|4| And the same John had his raiment of camel's hair, and a leathern girdle about his loins; and his meat was locusts and wild honey.

Mat|3|5| Then went out to him Jerusalem, and all Judaea, and all the region round about Jordan,

Mat|3|6| And were baptized of him in Jordan, confessing their sins.

Mat|3|7| But when he saw many of the Pharisees and Sadducees come to his baptism, he said unto them, O generation of vipers, who hath warned you to flee from the wrath to come?

Mat|3|8| Bring forth therefore fruits meet for repentance:

Mat|3|9| And think not to say within yourselves, We have Abraham to our father: for I say unto you, that God is able of these stones to raise up children unto Abraham.

Mat|3|10| And now also the axe is laid unto the root of the trees: therefore every tree which bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.

Mat|3|11| I indeed baptize you with water unto repentance. but he that cometh after me is mightier than I, whose shoes I am not worthy to bear: he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost, and with fire:

Mat|3|12| Whose fan is in his hand, and he will throughly purge his floor, and gather his wheat into the garner; but he will burn up the chaff with unquenchable fire.

Mat|3|13| Then cometh Jesus from Galilee to Jordan unto John, to be baptized of him.

Mat|3|14| But John forbad him, saying, I have need to be baptized of thee, and comest thou to me?

Mat|3|15| And Jesus answering said unto him, Suffer it to be so now: for thus it becometh us to fulfil all righteousness. Then he suffered him.

Mat|3|16| And Jesus, when he was baptized, went up straightway out of the water: and, lo, the heavens were opened unto him, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove, and lighting upon him:

Mat|3|17| And lo a voice from heaven, saying, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.

Mat|4|1| Then was Jesus led up of the spirit into the wilderness to be tempted of the devil.

Mat|4|2| And when he had fasted forty days and forty nights, he was afterward an hungred.

Mat|4|3| And when the tempter came to him, he said, If thou be the Son of God, command that these stones be made bread.

Mat|4|4| But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.

Mat|4|5| Then the devil taketh him up into the holy city, and setteth him on a pinnacle of the temple,

Mat|4|6| And saith unto him, If thou be the Son of God, cast thyself down: for it is written, He shall give his angels charge concerning thee: and in their hands they shall bear thee up, lest at any time thou dash thy foot against a stone.

Mat|4|7| Jesus said unto him, It is written again, Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God.

Mat|4|8| Again, the devil taketh him up into an exceeding high mountain, and sheweth him all the kingdoms of the world, and the glory of them;

Mat|4|9| And saith unto him, All these things will I give thee, if thou wilt fall down and worship me.

Mat|4|10| Then saith Jesus unto him, Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.

Mat|4|11| Then the devil leaveth him, and, behold, angels came and ministered unto him.

Mat|4|12| Now when Jesus had heard that John was cast into prison, he departed into Galilee;

Mat|4|13| And leaving Nazareth, he came and dwelt in Capernaum, which is upon the sea coast, in the borders of Zabulon and Nephthalim:

Mat|4|14| That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Esaias the prophet, saying,

Mat|4|15| The land of Zabulon, and the land of Nephthalim, by the way of the sea, beyond Jordan, Galilee of the Gentiles;

Mat|4|16| The people which sat in darkness saw great light; and to them which sat in the region and shadow of death light is sprung up.

Mat|4|17| From that time Jesus began to preach, and to say, Repent: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.

Mat|4|18| And Jesus, walking by the sea of Galilee, saw two brethren, Simon called Peter, and Andrew his brother, casting a net into the sea: for they were fishers.

Mat|4|19| And he saith unto them, Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men.

Mat|4|20| And they straightway left their nets, and followed him.

Mat|4|21| And going on from thence, he saw other two brethren, James the son of Zebedee, and John his brother, in a ship with Zebedee their father, mending their nets; and he called them.

Mat|4|22| And they immediately left the ship and their father, and followed him.

Mat|4|23| And Jesus went about all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing all manner of sickness and all manner of disease among the people.

Mat|4|24| And his fame went throughout all Syria: and they brought unto him all sick people that were taken with divers diseases and torments, and those which were possessed with devils, and those which were lunatick, and those that had the palsy; and he healed them.

Mat|4|25| And there followed him great multitudes of people from Galilee, and from Decapolis, and from Jerusalem, and from Judaea, and from beyond Jordan.

Mat|5|1| And seeing the multitudes, he went up into a mountain: and when he was set, his disciples came unto him:

Mat|5|2| And he opened his mouth, and taught them, saying,

Mat|5|3| Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

Mat|5|4| Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted.

Mat|5|5| Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth.

Mat|5|6| Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled.

Mat|5|7| Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy.

Mat|5|8| Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God.

Mat|5|9| Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.

Mat|5|10| Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness' sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

Mat|5|11| Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake.

Mat|5|12| Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you.

Mat|5|13| Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men.

Mat|5|14| Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid.

Mat|5|15| Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house.

Mat|5|16| Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.

Mat|5|17| Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil.

Mat|5|18| For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.

Mat|5|19| Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.

Mat|5|20| For I say unto you, That except your righteousness shall exceed the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, ye shall in no case enter into the kingdom of heaven.

Mat|5|21| Ye have heard that it was said of them of old time, Thou shalt not kill; and whosoever shall kill shall be in danger of the judgment:

Mat|5|22| But I say unto you, That whosoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment: and whosoever shall say to his brother, Raca, shall be in danger of the council: but whosoever shall say, Thou fool, shall be in danger of hell fire.

Mat|5|23| Therefore if thou bring thy gift to the altar, and there rememberest that thy brother hath ought against thee;

Mat|5|24| Leave there thy gift before the altar, and go thy way; first be reconciled to thy brother, and then come and offer thy gift.

Mat|5|25| Agree with thine adversary quickly, whiles thou art in the way with him; lest at any time the adversary deliver thee to the judge, and the judge deliver thee to the officer, and thou be cast into prison.

Mat|5|26| Verily I say unto thee, Thou shalt by no means come out thence, till thou hast paid the uttermost farthing.

Mat|5|27| Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time, Thou shalt not commit adultery:

Mat|5|28| But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart.

Mat|5|29| And if thy right eye offend thee, pluck it out, and cast it from thee: for it is profitable for thee that one of thy members should perish, and not that thy whole body should be cast into hell.

Mat|5|30| And if thy right hand offend thee, cut it off, and cast it from thee: for it is profitable for thee that one of thy members should perish, and not that thy whole body should be cast into hell.

Mat|5|31| It hath been said, Whosoever shall put away his wife, let him give her a writing of divorcement:

Mat|5|32| But I say unto you, That whosoever shall put away his wife, saving for the cause of fornication, causeth her to commit adultery: and whosoever shall marry her that is divorced committeth adultery.

Mat|5|33| Again, ye have heard that it hath been said by them of old time, Thou shalt not forswear thyself, but shalt perform unto the Lord thine oaths:

Mat|5|34| But I say unto you, Swear not at all; neither by heaven; for it is God's throne:

Mat|5|35| Nor by the earth; for it is his footstool: neither by Jerusalem; for it is the city of the great King.

Mat|5|36| Neither shalt thou swear by thy head, because thou canst not make one hair white or black.

Mat|5|37| But let your communication be, Yea, yea; Nay, nay: for whatsoever is more than these cometh of evil.

Mat|5|38| Ye have heard that it hath been said, An eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth:

Mat|5|39| But I say unto you, That ye resist not evil: but whosoever shall smite thee on thy right cheek, turn to him the other also.

Mat|5|40| And if any man will sue thee at the law, and take away thy coat, let him have thy cloak also.

Mat|5|41| And whosoever shall compel thee to go a mile, go with him twain.

Mat|5|42| Give to him that asketh thee, and from him that would borrow of thee turn not thou away.

Mat|5|43| Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbour, and hate thine enemy.

Mat|5|44| But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;

Mat|5|45| That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust.

Mat|5|46| For if ye love them which love you, what reward have ye? do not even the publicans the same?

Mat|5|47| And if ye salute your brethren only, what do ye more than others? do not even the publicans so?

Mat|5|48| Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.

Mat|6|1| Take heed that ye do not your alms before men, to be seen of them: otherwise ye have no reward of your Father which is in heaven.

Mat|6|2| Therefore when thou doest thine alms, do not sound a trumpet before thee, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, that they may have glory of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.

Mat|6|3| But when thou doest alms, let not thy left hand know what thy right hand doeth:

Mat|6|4| That thine alms may be in secret: and thy Father which seeth in secret himself shall reward thee openly.

Mat|6|5| And when thou prayest, thou shalt not be as the hypocrites are: for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.

Mat|6|6| But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly.

Mat|6|7| But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking.

Mat|6|8| Be not ye therefore like unto them: for your Father knoweth what things ye have need of, before ye ask him.

Mat|6|9| After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.

Mat|6|10| Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.

Mat|6|11| Give us this day our daily bread.

Mat|6|12| And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.

Mat|6|13| And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.

Mat|6|14| For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you:

Mat|6|15| But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.

Mat|6|16| Moreover when ye fast, be not, as the hypocrites, of a sad countenance: for they disfigure their faces, that they may appear unto men to fast. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.

Mat|6|17| But thou, when thou fastest, anoint thine head, and wash thy face;

Mat|6|18| That thou appear not unto men to fast, but unto thy Father which is in secret: and thy Father, which seeth in secret, shall reward thee openly.

Mat|6|19| Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal:

Mat|6|20| But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal:

Mat|6|21| For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.

Mat|6|22| The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light.

Mat|6|23| But if thine eye be evil, thy whole body shall be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in thee be darkness, how great is that darkness!

Mat|6|24| No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.

Mat|6|25| Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment?

Mat|6|26| Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they?

Mat|6|27| Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature?

Mat|6|28| And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin:

Mat|6|29| And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.

Mat|6|30| Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which to day is, and to morrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith?

Mat|6|31| Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed?

Mat|6|32| (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things.

Mat|6|33| But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.

Mat|6|34| Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.

Mat|7|1| Judge not, that ye be not judged.

Mat|7|2| For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again.

Mat|7|3| And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother's eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye?

Mat|7|4| Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the mote out of thine eye; and, behold, a beam is in thine own eye?

Mat|7|5| Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother's eye.

Mat|7|6| Give not that which is holy unto the dogs, neither cast ye your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn again and rend you.

Mat|7|7| Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you:

Mat|7|8| For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.

Mat|7|9| Or what man is there of you, whom if his son ask bread, will he give him a stone?

Mat|7|10| Or if he ask a fish, will he give him a serpent?

Mat|7|11| If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children, how much more shall your Father which is in heaven give good things to them that ask him?

Mat|7|12| Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them: for this is the law and the prophets.

Mat|7|13| Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat:

Mat|7|14| Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.

Mat|7|15| Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.

Mat|7|16| Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?

Mat|7|17| Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit.

Mat|7|18| A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.

Mat|7|19| Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.

Mat|7|20| Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.

Mat|7|21| Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.

Mat|7|22| Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?

Mat|7|23| And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.

Mat|7|24| Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock:

Mat|7|25| And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock.

Mat|7|26| And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand:

Mat|7|27| And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it.

Mat|7|28| And it came to pass, when Jesus had ended these sayings, the people were astonished at his doctrine:

Mat|7|29| For he taught them as one having authority, and not as the scribes.

Mat|8|1| When he was come down from the mountain, great multitudes followed him.

Mat|8|2| And, behold, there came a leper and worshipped him, saying, Lord, if thou wilt, thou canst make me clean.

Mat|8|3| And Jesus put forth his hand, and touched him, saying, I will; be thou clean. And immediately his leprosy was cleansed.

Mat|8|4| And Jesus saith unto him, See thou tell no man; but go thy way, shew thyself to the priest, and offer the gift that Moses commanded, for a testimony unto them.

Mat|8|5| And when Jesus was entered into Capernaum, there came unto him a centurion, beseeching him,

Mat|8|6| And saying, Lord, my servant lieth at home sick of the palsy, grievously tormented.

Mat|8|7| And Jesus saith unto him, I will come and heal him.

Mat|8|8| The centurion answered and said, Lord, I am not worthy that thou shouldest come under my roof: but speak the word only, and my servant shall be healed.

Mat|8|9| For I am a man under authority, having soldiers under me: and I say to this man, Go, and he goeth; and to another, Come, and he cometh; and to my servant, Do this, and he doeth it.

Mat|8|10| When Jesus heard it, he marvelled, and said to them that followed, Verily I say unto you, I have not found so great faith, no, not in Israel.

Mat|8|11| And I say unto you, That many shall come from the east and west, and shall sit down with Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, in the kingdom of heaven.

Mat|8|12| But the children of the kingdom shall be cast out into outer darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

Mat|8|13| And Jesus said unto the centurion, Go thy way; and as thou hast believed, so be it done unto thee. And his servant was healed in the selfsame hour.

Mat|8|14| And when Jesus was come into Peter's house, he saw his wife's mother laid, and sick of a fever.

Mat|8|15| And he touched her hand, and the fever left her: and she arose, and ministered unto them.

Mat|8|16| When the even was come, they brought unto him many that were possessed with devils: and he cast out the spirits with his word, and healed all that were sick:

Mat|8|17| That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Esaias the prophet, saying, Himself took our infirmities, and bare our sicknesses.

Mat|8|18| Now when Jesus saw great multitudes about him, he gave commandment to depart unto the other side.

Mat|8|19| And a certain scribe came, and said unto him, Master, I will follow thee whithersoever thou goest.

Mat|8|20| And Jesus saith unto him, The foxes have holes, and the birds of the air have nests; but the Son of man hath not where to lay his head.

Mat|8|21| And another of his disciples said unto him, Lord, suffer me first to go and bury my father.

Mat|8|22| But Jesus said unto him, Follow me; and let the dead bury their dead.

Mat|8|23| And when he was entered into a ship, his disciples followed him.

Mat|8|24| And, behold, there arose a great tempest in the sea, insomuch that the ship was covered with the waves: but he was asleep.

Mat|8|25| And his disciples came to him, and awoke him, saying, Lord, save us: we perish.

Mat|8|26| And he saith unto them, Why are ye fearful, O ye of little faith? Then he arose, and rebuked the winds and the sea; and there was a great calm.

Mat|8|27| But the men marvelled, saying, What manner of man is this, that even the winds and the sea obey him!

Mat|8|28| And when he was come to the other side into the country of the Gergesenes, there met him two possessed with devils, coming out of the tombs, exceeding fierce, so that no man might pass by that way.

Mat|8|29| And, behold, they cried out, saying, What have we to do with thee, Jesus, thou Son of God? art thou come hither to torment us before the time?

Mat|8|30| And there was a good way off from them an herd of many swine feeding.

Mat|8|31| So the devils besought him, saying, If thou cast us out, suffer us to go away into the herd of swine.

Mat|8|32| And he said unto them, Go. And when they were come out, they went into the herd of swine: and, behold, the whole herd of swine ran violently down a steep place into the sea, and perished in the waters.

Mat|8|33| And they that kept them fled, and went their ways into the city, and told every thing, and what was befallen to the possessed of the devils.

Mat|8|34| And, behold, the whole city came out to meet Jesus: and when they saw him, they besought him that he would depart out of their coasts.

Mat|9|1| And he entered into a ship, and passed over, and came into his own city.

Mat|9|2| And, behold, they brought to him a man sick of the palsy, lying on a bed: and Jesus seeing their faith said unto the sick of the palsy; Son, be of good cheer; thy sins be forgiven thee.

Mat|9|3| And, behold, certain of the scribes said within themselves, This man blasphemeth.

Mat|9|4| And Jesus knowing their thoughts said, Wherefore think ye evil in your hearts?

Mat|9|5| For whether is easier, to say, Thy sins be forgiven thee; or to say, Arise, and walk?

Mat|9|6| But that ye may know that the Son of man hath power on earth to forgive sins, (then saith he to the sick of the palsy,) Arise, take up thy bed, and go unto thine house.

Mat|9|7| And he arose, and departed to his house.

Mat|9|8| But when the multitudes saw it, they marvelled, and glorified God, which had given such power unto men.

Mat|9|9| And as Jesus passed forth from thence, he saw a man, named Matthew, sitting at the receipt of custom: and he saith unto him, Follow me. And he arose, and followed him.

Mat|9|10| And it came to pass, as Jesus sat at meat in the house, behold, many publicans and sinners came and sat down with him and his disciples.

Mat|9|11| And when the Pharisees saw it, they said unto his disciples, Why eateth your Master with publicans and sinners?

Mat|9|12| But when Jesus heard that, he said unto them, They that be whole need not a physician, but they that are sick.

Mat|9|13| But go ye and learn what that meaneth, I will have mercy, and not sacrifice: for I am not come to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.

Mat|9|14| Then came to him the disciples of John, saying, Why do we and the Pharisees fast oft, but thy disciples fast not?

Mat|9|15| And Jesus said unto them, Can the children of the bridechamber mourn, as long as the bridegroom is with them? but the days will come, when the bridegroom shall be taken from them, and then shall they fast.

Mat|9|16| No man putteth a piece of new cloth unto an old garment, for that which is put in to fill it up taketh from the garment, and the rent is made worse.

Mat|9|17| Neither do men put new wine into old bottles: else the bottles break, and the wine runneth out, and the bottles perish: but they put new wine into new bottles, and both are preserved.

Mat|9|18| While he spake these things unto them, behold, there came a certain ruler, and worshipped him, saying, My daughter is even now dead: but come and lay thy hand upon her, and she shall live.

Mat|9|19| And Jesus arose, and followed him, and so did his disciples.

Mat|9|20| And, behold, a woman, which was diseased with an issue of blood twelve years, came behind him, and touched the hem of his garment:

Mat|9|21| For she said within herself, If I may but touch his garment, I shall be whole.

Mat|9|22| But Jesus turned him about, and when he saw her, he said, Daughter, be of good comfort; thy faith hath made thee whole. And the woman was made whole from that hour.

Mat|9|23| And when Jesus came into the ruler's house, and saw the minstrels and the people making a noise,

Mat|9|24| He said unto them, Give place: for the maid is not dead, but sleepeth. And they laughed him to scorn.

Mat|9|25| But when the people were put forth, he went in, and took her by the hand, and the maid arose.

Mat|9|26| And the fame hereof went abroad into all that land.

Mat|9|27| And when Jesus departed thence, two blind men followed him, crying, and saying, Thou son of David, have mercy on us.

Mat|9|28| And when he was come into the house, the blind men came to him: and Jesus saith unto them, Believe ye that I am able to do this? They said unto him, Yea, Lord.

Mat|9|29| Then touched he their eyes, saying, According to your faith be it unto you.

Mat|9|30| And their eyes were opened; and Jesus straitly charged them, saying, See that no man know it.

Mat|9|31| But they, when they were departed, spread abroad his fame in all that country.

Mat|9|32| As they went out, behold, they brought to him a dumb man possessed with a devil.

Mat|9|33| And when the devil was cast out, the dumb spake: and the multitudes marvelled, saying, It was never so seen in Israel.

Mat|9|34| But the Pharisees said, He casteth out devils through the prince of the devils.

Mat|9|35| And Jesus went about all the cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing every sickness and every disease among the people.

Mat|9|36| But when he saw the multitudes, he was moved with compassion on them, because they fainted, and were scattered abroad, as sheep having no shepherd.

Mat|9|37| Then saith he unto his disciples, The harvest truly is plenteous, but the labourers are few;

Mat|9|38| Pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he will send forth labourers into his harvest.

Mat|10|1| And when he had called unto him his twelve disciples, he gave them power against unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to heal all manner of sickness and all manner of disease.

Mat|10|2| Now the names of the twelve apostles are these; The first, Simon, who is called Peter, and Andrew his brother; James the son of Zebedee, and John his brother;

Mat|10|3| Philip, and Bartholomew; Thomas, and Matthew the publican; James the son of Alphaeus, and Lebbaeus, whose surname was Thaddaeus;

Mat|10|4| Simon the Canaanite, and Judas Iscariot, who also betrayed him.

Mat|10|5| These twelve Jesus sent forth, and commanded them, saying, Go not into the way of the Gentiles, and into any city of the Samaritans enter ye not:

Mat|10|6| But go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel.

Mat|10|7| And as ye go, preach, saying, The kingdom of heaven is at hand.

Mat|10|8| Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils: freely ye have received, freely give.

Mat|10|9| Provide neither gold, nor silver, nor brass in your purses,

Mat|10|10| Nor scrip for your journey, neither two coats, neither shoes, nor yet staves: for the workman is worthy of his meat.

Mat|10|11| And into whatsoever city or town ye shall enter, enquire who in it is worthy; and there abide till ye go thence.

Mat|10|12| And when ye come into an house, salute it.

Mat|10|13| And if the house be worthy, let your peace come upon it: but if it be not worthy, let your peace return to you.

Mat|10|14| And whosoever shall not receive you, nor hear your words, when ye depart out of that house or city, shake off the dust of your feet.

Mat|10|15| Verily I say unto you, It shall be more tolerable for the land of Sodom and Gomorrha in the day of judgment, than for that city.

Mat|10|16| Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves: be ye therefore wise as serpents, and harmless as doves.

Mat|10|17| But beware of men: for they will deliver you up to the councils, and they will scourge you in their synagogues;

Mat|10|18| And ye shall be brought before governors and kings for my sake, for a testimony against them and the Gentiles.

Mat|10|19| But when they deliver you up, take no thought how or what ye shall speak: for it shall be given you in that same hour what ye shall speak.

Mat|10|20| For it is not ye that speak, but the Spirit of your Father which speaketh in you.

Mat|10|21| And the brother shall deliver up the brother to death, and the father the child: and the children shall rise up against their parents, and cause them to be put to death.

Mat|10|22| And ye shall be hated of all men for my name's sake: but he that endureth to the end shall be saved.

Mat|10|23| But when they persecute you in this city, flee ye into another: for verily I say unto you, Ye shall not have gone over the cities of Israel, till the Son of man be come.

Mat|10|24| The disciple is not above his master, nor the servant above his lord.

Mat|10|25| It is enough for the disciple that he be as his master, and the servant as his lord. If they have called the master of the house Beelzebub, how much more shall they call them of his household?

Mat|10|26| Fear them not therefore: for there is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed; and hid, that shall not be known.

Mat|10|27| What I tell you in darkness, that speak ye in light: and what ye hear in the ear, that preach ye upon the housetops.

Mat|10|28| And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.

Mat|10|29| Are not two sparrows sold for a farthing? and one of them shall not fall on the ground without your Father.

Mat|10|30| But the very hairs of your head are all numbered.

Mat|10|31| Fear ye not therefore, ye are of more value than many sparrows.

Mat|10|32| Whosoever therefore shall confess me before men, him will I confess also before my Father which is in heaven.

Mat|10|33| But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father which is in heaven.

Mat|10|34| Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword.

Mat|10|35| For I am come to set a man at variance against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter in law against her mother in law.

Mat|10|36| And a man's foes shall be they of his own household.

Mat|10|37| He that loveth father or mother more than me is not worthy of me: and he that loveth son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me.

Mat|10|38| And he that taketh not his cross, and followeth after me, is not worthy of me.

Mat|10|39| He that findeth his life shall lose it: and he that loseth his life for my sake shall find it.

Mat|10|40| He that receiveth you receiveth me, and he that receiveth me receiveth him that sent me.

Mat|10|41| He that receiveth a prophet in the name of a prophet shall receive a prophet's reward; and he that receiveth a righteous man in the name of a righteous man shall receive a righteous man's reward.

Mat|10|42| And whosoever shall give to drink unto one of these little ones a cup of cold water only in the name of a disciple, verily I say unto you, he shall in no wise lose his reward.

Mat|11|1| And it came to pass, when Jesus had made an end of commanding his twelve disciples, he departed thence to teach and to preach in their cities.

Mat|11|2| Now when John had heard in the prison the works of Christ, he sent two of his disciples,

Mat|11|3| And said unto him, Art thou he that should come, or do we look for another?

Mat|11|4| Jesus answered and said unto them, Go and shew John again those things which ye do hear and see:

Mat|11|5| The blind receive their sight, and the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed, and the deaf hear, the dead are raised up, and the poor have the gospel preached to them.

Mat|11|6| And blessed is he, whosoever shall not be offended in me.

Mat|11|7| And as they departed, Jesus began to say unto the multitudes concerning John, What went ye out into the wilderness to see? A reed shaken with the wind?

Mat|11|8| But what went ye out for to see? A man clothed in soft raiment? behold, they that wear soft clothing are in kings' houses.

Mat|11|9| But what went ye out for to see? A prophet? yea, I say unto you, and more than a prophet.

Mat|11|10| For this is he, of whom it is written, Behold, I send my messenger before thy face, which shall prepare thy way before thee.

Mat|11|11| Verily I say unto you, Among them that are born of women there hath not risen a greater than John the Baptist: notwithstanding he that is least in the kingdom of heaven is greater than he.

Mat|11|12| And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffereth violence, and the violent take it by force.

Mat|11|13| For all the prophets and the law prophesied until John.

Mat|11|14| And if ye will receive it, this is Elias, which was for to come.

Mat|11|15| He that hath ears to hear, let him hear.

Mat|11|16| But whereunto shall I liken this generation? It is like unto children sitting in the markets, and calling unto their fellows,

Mat|11|17| And saying, We have piped unto you, and ye have not danced; we have mourned unto you, and ye have not lamented.

Mat|11|18| For John came neither eating nor drinking, and they say, He hath a devil.

Mat|11|19| The Son of man came eating and drinking, and they say, Behold a man gluttonous, and a winebibber, a friend of publicans and sinners. But wisdom is justified of her children.

Mat|11|20| Then began he to upbraid the cities wherein most of his mighty works were done, because they repented not:

Mat|11|21| Woe unto thee, Chorazin! woe unto thee, Bethsaida! for if the mighty works, which were done in you, had been done in Tyre and Sidon, they would have repented long ago in sackcloth and ashes.

Mat|11|22| But I say unto you, It shall be more tolerable for Tyre and Sidon at the day of judgment, than for you.

Mat|11|23| And thou, Capernaum, which art exalted unto heaven, shalt be brought down to hell: for if the mighty works, which have been done in thee, had been done in Sodom, it would have remained until this day.

Mat|11|24| But I say unto you, That it shall be more tolerable for the land of Sodom in the day of judgment, than for thee.

Mat|11|25| At that time Jesus answered and said, I thank thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them unto babes.

Mat|11|26| Even so, Father: for so it seemed good in thy sight.

Mat|11|27| All things are delivered unto me of my Father: and no man knoweth the Son, but the Father; neither knoweth any man the Father, save the Son, and he to whomsoever the Son will reveal him.

Mat|11|28| Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.

Mat|11|29| Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.

Mat|11|30| For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.

Mat|12|1| At that time Jesus went on the sabbath day through the corn; and his disciples were an hungred, and began to pluck the ears of corn and to eat.

Mat|12|2| But when the Pharisees saw it, they said unto him, Behold, thy disciples do that which is not lawful to do upon the sabbath day.

Mat|12|3| But he said unto them, Have ye not read what David did, when he was an hungred, and they that were with him;

Mat|12|4| How he entered into the house of God, and did eat the shewbread, which was not lawful for him to eat, neither for them which were with him, but only for the priests?

Mat|12|5| Or have ye not read in the law, how that on the sabbath days the priests in the temple profane the sabbath, and are blameless?

Mat|12|6| But I say unto you, That in this place is one greater than the temple.

Mat|12|7| But if ye had known what this meaneth, I will have mercy, and not sacrifice, ye would not have condemned the guiltless.

Mat|12|8| For the Son of man is Lord even of the sabbath day.

Mat|12|9| And when he was departed thence, he went into their synagogue:

Mat|12|10| And, behold, there was a man which had his hand withered. And they asked him, saying, Is it lawful to heal on the sabbath days? that they might accuse him.

Mat|12|11| And he said unto them, What man shall there be among you, that shall have one sheep, and if it fall into a pit on the sabbath day, will he not lay hold on it, and lift it out?

Mat|12|12| How much then is a man better than a sheep? Wherefore it is lawful to do well on the sabbath days.

Mat|12|13| Then saith he to the man, Stretch forth thine hand. And he stretched it forth; and it was restored whole, like as the other.

Mat|12|14| Then the Pharisees went out, and held a council against him, how they might destroy him.

Mat|12|15| But when Jesus knew it, he withdrew himself from thence: and great multitudes followed him, and he healed them all;

Mat|12|16| And charged them that they should not make him known:

Mat|12|17| That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Esaias the prophet, saying,

Mat|12|18| Behold my servant, whom I have chosen; my beloved, in whom my soul is well pleased: I will put my spirit upon him, and he shall shew judgment to the Gentiles.

Mat|12|19| He shall not strive, nor cry; neither shall any man hear his voice in the streets.

Mat|12|20| A bruised reed shall he not break, and smoking flax shall he not quench, till he send forth judgment unto victory.

Mat|12|21| And in his name shall the Gentiles trust.

Mat|12|22| Then was brought unto him one possessed with a devil, blind, and dumb: and he healed him, insomuch that the blind and dumb both spake and saw.

Mat|12|23| And all the people were amazed, and said, Is not this the son of David?

Mat|12|24| But when the Pharisees heard it, they said, This fellow doth not cast out devils, but by Beelzebub the prince of the devils.

Mat|12|25| And Jesus knew their thoughts, and said unto them, Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and every city or house divided against itself shall not stand:

Mat|12|26| And if Satan cast out Satan, he is divided against himself; how shall then his kingdom stand?

Mat|12|27| And if I by Beelzebub cast out devils, by whom do your children cast them out? therefore they shall be your judges.

Mat|12|28| But if I cast out devils by the Spirit of God, then the kingdom of God is come unto you.

Mat|12|29| Or else how can one enter into a strong man's house, and spoil his goods, except he first bind the strong man? and then he will spoil his house.

Mat|12|30| He that is not with me is against me; and he that gathereth not with me scattereth abroad.

Mat|12|31| Wherefore I say unto you, All manner of sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven unto men: but the blasphemy against the Holy Ghost shall not be forgiven unto men.

Mat|12|32| And whosoever speaketh a word against the Son of man, it shall be forgiven him: but whosoever speaketh against the Holy Ghost, it shall not be forgiven him, neither in this world, neither in the world to come.

Mat|12|33| Either make the tree good, and his fruit good; or else make the tree corrupt, and his fruit corrupt: for the tree is known by his fruit.

Mat|12|34| O generation of vipers, how can ye, being evil, speak good things? for out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh.

Mat|12|35| A good man out of the good treasure of the heart bringeth forth good things: and an evil man out of the evil treasure bringeth forth evil things.

Mat|12|36| But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment.

Mat|12|37| For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned.

Mat|12|38| Then certain of the scribes and of the Pharisees answered, saying, Master, we would see a sign from thee.

Mat|12|39| But he answered and said unto them, An evil and adulterous generation seeketh after a sign; and there shall no sign be given to it, but the sign of the prophet Jonas:

Mat|12|40| For as Jonas was three days and three nights in the whale's belly; so shall the Son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth.

Mat|12|41| The men of Nineveh shall rise in judgment with this generation, and shall condemn it: because they repented at the preaching of Jonas; and, behold, a greater than Jonas is here.

Mat|12|42| The queen of the south shall rise up in the judgment with this generation, and shall condemn it: for she came from the uttermost parts of the earth to hear the wisdom of Solomon; and, behold, a greater than Solomon is here.

Mat|12|43| When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walketh through dry places, seeking rest, and findeth none.

Mat|12|44| Then he saith, I will return into my house from whence I came out; and when he is come, he findeth it empty, swept, and garnished.

Mat|12|45| Then goeth he, and taketh with himself seven other spirits more wicked than himself, and they enter in and dwell there: and the last state of that man is worse than the first. Even so shall it be also unto this wicked generation.

Mat|12|46| While he yet talked to the people, behold, his mother and his brethren stood without, desiring to speak with him.

Mat|12|47| Then one said unto him, Behold, thy mother and thy brethren stand without, desiring to speak with thee.

Mat|12|48| But he answered and said unto him that told him, Who is my mother?and who are my brethren?

Mat|12|49| And he stretched forth his hand toward his disciples, and said, Behold my mother and my brethren!

Mat|12|50| For whosoever shall do the will of my Father which is in heaven, the same is my brother, and sister, and mother.

Mat|13|1| The same day went Jesus out of the house, and sat by the sea side.

Mat|13|2| And great multitudes were gathered together unto him, so that he went into a ship, and sat; and the whole multitude stood on the shore.

Mat|13|3| And he spake many things unto them in parables, saying, Behold, a sower went forth to sow;

Mat|13|4| And when he sowed, some seeds fell by the way side, and the fowls came and devoured them up:

Mat|13|5| Some fell upon stony places, where they had not much earth: and forthwith they sprung up, because they had no deepness of earth:

Mat|13|6| And when the sun was up, they were scorched; and because they had no root, they withered away.

Mat|13|7| And some fell among thorns; and the thorns sprung up, and choked them:

Mat|13|8| But other fell into good ground, and brought forth fruit, some an hundredfold, some sixtyfold, some thirtyfold.

Mat|13|9| Who hath ears to hear, let him hear.

Mat|13|10| And the disciples came, and said unto him, Why speakest thou unto them in parables?

Mat|13|11| He answered and said unto them, Because it is given unto you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it is not given.

Mat|13|12| For whosoever hath, to him shall be given, and he shall have more abundance: but whosoever hath not, from him shall be taken away even that he hath.

Mat|13|13| Therefore speak I to them in parables: because they seeing see not; and hearing they hear not, neither do they understand.

Mat|13|14| And in them is fulfilled the prophecy of Esaias, which saith, By hearing ye shall hear, and shall not understand; and seeing ye shall see, and shall not perceive:

Mat|13|15| For this people's heart is waxed gross, and their ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes they have closed; lest at any time they should see with their eyes and hear with their ears, and should understand with their heart, and should be converted, and I should heal them.

Mat|13|16| But blessed are your eyes, for they see: and your ears, for they hear.

Mat|13|17| For verily I say unto you, That many prophets and righteous men have desired to see those things which ye see, and have not seen them; and to hear those things which ye hear, and have not heard them.

Mat|13|18| Hear ye therefore the parable of the sower.

Mat|13|19| When any one heareth the word of the kingdom, and understandeth it not, then cometh the wicked one, and catcheth away that which was sown in his heart. This is he which received seed by the way side.

Mat|13|20| But he that received the seed into stony places, the same is he that heareth the word, and anon with joy receiveth it;

Mat|13|21| Yet hath he not root in himself, but dureth for a while: for when tribulation or persecution ariseth because of the word, by and by he is offended.

Mat|13|22| He also that received seed among the thorns is he that heareth the word; and the care of this world, and the deceitfulness of riches, choke the word, and he becometh unfruitful.

Mat|13|23| But he that received seed into the good ground is he that heareth the word, and understandeth it; which also beareth fruit, and bringeth forth, some an hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty.

Mat|13|24| Another parable put he forth unto them, saying, The kingdom of heaven is likened unto a man which sowed good seed in his field:

Mat|13|25| But while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat, and went his way.

Mat|13|26| But when the blade was sprung up, and brought forth fruit, then appeared the tares also.

Mat|13|27| So the servants of the householder came and said unto him, Sir, didst not thou sow good seed in thy field? from whence then hath it tares?

Mat|13|28| He said unto them, An enemy hath done this. The servants said unto him, Wilt thou then that we go and gather them up?

Mat|13|29| But he said, Nay; lest while ye gather up the tares, ye root up also the wheat with them.

Mat|13|30| Let both grow together until the harvest: and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, Gather ye together first the tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them: but gather the wheat into my barn.

Mat|13|31| Another parable put he forth unto them, saying, The kingdom of heaven is like to a grain of mustard seed, which a man took, and sowed in his field:

Mat|13|32| Which indeed is the least of all seeds: but when it is grown, it is the greatest among herbs, and becometh a tree, so that the birds of the air come and lodge in the branches thereof.

Mat|13|33| Another parable spake he unto them; The kingdom of heaven is like unto leaven, which a woman took, and hid in three measures of meal, till the whole was leavened.

Mat|13|34| All these things spake Jesus unto the multitude in parables; and without a parable spake he not unto them:

Mat|13|35| That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, saying, I will open my mouth in parables; I will utter things which have been kept secret from the foundation of the world.

Mat|13|36| Then Jesus sent the multitude away, and went into the house: and his disciples came unto him, saying, Declare unto us the parable of the tares of the field.

Mat|13|37| He answered and said unto them, He that soweth the good seed is the Son of man;

Mat|13|38| The field is the world; the good seed are the children of the kingdom; but the tares are the children of the wicked one;

Mat|13|39| The enemy that sowed them is the devil; the harvest is the end of the world; and the reapers are the angels.

Mat|13|40| As therefore the tares are gathered and burned in the fire; so shall it be in the end of this world.

Mat|13|41| The Son of man shall send forth his angels, and they shall gather out of his kingdom all things that offend, and them which do iniquity;

Mat|13|42| And shall cast them into a furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth.

Mat|13|43| Then shall the righteous shine forth as the sun in the kingdom of their Father. Who hath ears to hear, let him hear.

Mat|13|44| Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto treasure hid in a field; the which when a man hath found, he hideth, and for joy thereof goeth and selleth all that he hath, and buyeth that field.

Mat|13|45| Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a merchant man, seeking goodly pearls:

Mat|13|46| Who, when he had found one pearl of great price, went and sold all that he had, and bought it.

Mat|13|47| Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a net, that was cast into the sea, and gathered of every kind:

Mat|13|48| Which, when it was full, they drew to shore, and sat down, and gathered the good into vessels, but cast the bad away.

Mat|13|49| So shall it be at the end of the world: the angels shall come forth, and sever the wicked from among the just,

Mat|13|50| And shall cast them into the furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth.

Mat|13|51| Jesus saith unto them, Have ye understood all these things? They say unto him, Yea, Lord.

Mat|13|52| Then said he unto them, Therefore every scribe which is instructed unto the kingdom of heaven is like unto a man that is an householder, which bringeth forth out of his treasure things new and old.

Mat|13|53| And it came to pass, that when Jesus had finished these parables, he departed thence.

Mat|13|54| And when he was come into his own country, he taught them in their synagogue, insomuch that they were astonished, and said, Whence hath this man this wisdom, and these mighty works?

Mat|13|55| Is not this the carpenter's son? is not his mother called Mary? and his brethren, James, and Joses, and Simon, and Judas?

Mat|13|56| And his sisters, are they not all with us? Whence then hath this man all these things?

Mat|13|57| And they were offended in him. But Jesus said unto them, A prophet is not without honour, save in his own country, and in his own house.

Mat|13|58| And he did not many mighty works there because of their unbelief.

Mat|14|1| At that time Herod the tetrarch heard of the fame of Jesus,

Mat|14|2| And said unto his servants, This is John the Baptist; he is risen from the dead; and therefore mighty works do shew forth themselves in him.

Mat|14|3| For Herod had laid hold on John, and bound him, and put him in prison for Herodias' sake, his brother Philip's wife.

Mat|14|4| For John said unto him, It is not lawful for thee to have her.

Mat|14|5| And when he would have put him to death, he feared the multitude, because they counted him as a prophet.

Mat|14|6| But when Herod's birthday was kept, the daughter of Herodias danced before them, and pleased Herod.

Mat|14|7| Whereupon he promised with an oath to give her whatsoever she would ask.

Mat|14|8| And she, being before instructed of her mother, said, Give me here John Baptist's head in a charger.

Mat|14|9| And the king was sorry: nevertheless for the oath's sake, and them which sat with him at meat, he commanded it to be given her.

Mat|14|10| And he sent, and beheaded John in the prison.

Mat|14|11| And his head was brought in a charger, and given to the damsel: and she brought it to her mother.

Mat|14|12| And his disciples came, and took up the body, and buried it, and went and told Jesus.

Mat|14|13| When Jesus heard of it, he departed thence by ship into a desert place apart: and when the people had heard thereof, they followed him on foot out of the cities.

Mat|14|14| And Jesus went forth, and saw a great multitude, and was moved with compassion toward them, and he healed their sick.

Mat|14|15| And when it was evening, his disciples came to him, saying, This is a desert place, and the time is now past; send the multitude away, that they may go into the villages, and buy themselves victuals.

Mat|14|16| But Jesus said unto them, They need not depart; give ye them to eat.

Mat|14|17| And they say unto him, We have here but five loaves, and two fishes.

Mat|14|18| He said, Bring them hither to me.

Mat|14|19| And he commanded the multitude to sit down on the grass, and took the five loaves, and the two fishes, and looking up to heaven, he blessed, and brake, and gave the loaves to his disciples, and the disciples to the multitude.

Mat|14|20| And they did all eat, and were filled: and they took up of the fragments that remained twelve baskets full.

Mat|14|21| And they that had eaten were about five thousand men, beside women and children.

Mat|14|22| And straightway Jesus constrained his disciples to get into a ship, and to go before him unto the other side, while he sent the multitudes away.

Mat|14|23| And when he had sent the multitudes away, he went up into a mountain apart to pray: and when the evening was come, he was there alone.

Mat|14|24| But the ship was now in the midst of the sea, tossed with waves: for the wind was contrary.

Mat|14|25| And in the fourth watch of the night Jesus went unto them, walking on the sea.

Mat|14|26| And when the disciples saw him walking on the sea, they were troubled, saying, It is a spirit; and they cried out for fear.

Mat|14|27| But straightway Jesus spake unto them, saying, Be of good cheer; it is I; be not afraid.

Mat|14|28| And Peter answered him and said, Lord, if it be thou, bid me come unto thee on the water.

Mat|14|29| And he said, Come. And when Peter was come down out of the ship, he walked on the water, to go to Jesus.

Mat|14|30| But when he saw the wind boisterous, he was afraid; and beginning to sink, he cried, saying, Lord, save me.

Mat|14|31| And immediately Jesus stretched forth his hand, and caught him, and said unto him, O thou of little faith, wherefore didst thou doubt?

Mat|14|32| And when they were come into the ship, the wind ceased.

Mat|14|33| Then they that were in the ship came and worshipped him, saying, Of a truth thou art the Son of God.

Mat|14|34| And when they were gone over, they came into the land of Gennesaret.

Mat|14|35| And when the men of that place had knowledge of him, they sent out into all that country round about, and brought unto him all that were diseased;

Mat|14|36| And besought him that they might only touch the hem of his garment: and as many as touched were made perfectly whole.

Mat|15|1| Then came to Jesus scribes and Pharisees, which were of Jerusalem, saying,

Mat|15|2| Why do thy disciples transgress the tradition of the elders? for they wash not their hands when they eat bread.

Mat|15|3| But he answered and said unto them, Why do ye also transgress the commandment of God by your tradition?

Mat|15|4| For God commanded, saying, Honour thy father and mother: and, He that curseth father or mother, let him die the death.

Mat|15|5| But ye say, Whosoever shall say to his father or his mother, It is a gift, by whatsoever thou mightest be profited by me;

Mat|15|6| And honour not his father or his mother, he shall be free. Thus have ye made the commandment of God of none effect by your tradition.

Mat|15|7| Ye hypocrites, well did Esaias prophesy of you, saying,

Mat|15|8| This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoureth me with their lips; but their heart is far from me.

Mat|15|9| But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.

Mat|15|10| And he called the multitude, and said unto them, Hear, and understand:

Mat|15|11| Not that which goeth into the mouth defileth a man; but that which cometh out of the mouth, this defileth a man.

Mat|15|12| Then came his disciples, and said unto him, Knowest thou that the Pharisees were offended, after they heard this saying?

Mat|15|13| But he answered and said, Every plant, which my heavenly Father hath not planted, shall be rooted up.

Mat|15|14| Let them alone: they be blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch.

Mat|15|15| Then answered Peter and said unto him, Declare unto us this parable.

Mat|15|16| And Jesus said, Are ye also yet without understanding?

Mat|15|17| Do not ye yet understand, that whatsoever entereth in at the mouth goeth into the belly, and is cast out into the draught?

Mat|15|18| But those things which proceed out of the mouth come forth from the heart; and they defile the man.

Mat|15|19| For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, blasphemies:

Mat|15|20| These are the things which defile a man: but to eat with unwashen hands defileth not a man.

Mat|15|21| Then Jesus went thence, and departed into the coasts of Tyre and Sidon.

Mat|15|22| And, behold, a woman of Canaan came out of the same coasts, and cried unto him, saying, Have mercy on me, O Lord, thou son of David; my daughter is grievously vexed with a devil.

Mat|15|23| But he answered her not a word. And his disciples came and besought him, saying, Send her away; for she crieth after us.

Mat|15|24| But he answered and said, I am not sent but unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel.

Mat|15|25| Then came she and worshipped him, saying, Lord, help me.

Mat|15|26| But he answered and said, It is not meet to take the children's bread, and to cast it to dogs.

Mat|15|27| And she said, Truth, Lord: yet the dogs eat of the crumbs which fall from their masters' table.

Mat|15|28| Then Jesus answered and said unto her, O woman, great is thy faith: be it unto thee even as thou wilt. And her daughter was made whole from that very hour.

Mat|15|29| And Jesus departed from thence, and came nigh unto the sea of Galilee; and went up into a mountain, and sat down there.

Mat|15|30| And great multitudes came unto him, having with them those that were lame, blind, dumb, maimed, and many others, and cast them down at Jesus' feet; and he healed them:

Mat|15|31| Insomuch that the multitude wondered, when they saw the dumb to speak, the maimed to be whole, the lame to walk, and the blind to see: and they glorified the God of Israel.

Mat|15|32| Then Jesus called his disciples unto him, and said, I have compassion on the multitude, because they continue with me now three days, and have nothing to eat: and I will not send them away fasting, lest they faint in the way.

Mat|15|33| And his disciples say unto him, Whence should we have so much bread in the wilderness, as to fill so great a multitude?

Mat|15|34| And Jesus saith unto them, How many loaves have ye? And they said, Seven, and a few little fishes.

Mat|15|35| And he commanded the multitude to sit down on the ground.

Mat|15|36| And he took the seven loaves and the fishes, and gave thanks, and brake them, and gave to his disciples, and the disciples to the multitude.

Mat|15|37| And they did all eat, and were filled: and they took up of the broken meat that was left seven baskets full.

Mat|15|38| And they that did eat were four thousand men, beside women and children.

Mat|15|39| And he sent away the multitude, and took ship, and came into the coasts of Magdala.

Mat|16|1| The Pharisees also with the Sadducees came, and tempting desired him that he would shew them a sign from heaven.

Mat|16|2| He answered and said unto them, When it is evening, ye say, It will be fair weather: for the sky is red.

Mat|16|3| And in the morning, It will be foul weather to day: for the sky is red and lowering. O ye hypocrites, ye can discern the face of the sky; but can ye not discern the signs of the times?

Mat|16|4| A wicked and adulterous generation seeketh after a sign; and there shall no sign be given unto it, but the sign of the prophet Jonas. And he left them, and departed.

Mat|16|5| And when his disciples were come to the other side, they had forgotten to take bread.

Mat|16|6| Then Jesus said unto them, Take heed and beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and of the Sadducees.

Mat|16|7| And they reasoned among themselves, saying, It is because we have taken no bread.

Mat|16|8| Which when Jesus perceived, he said unto them, O ye of little faith, why reason ye among yourselves, because ye have brought no bread?

Mat|16|9| Do ye not yet understand, neither remember the five loaves of the five thousand, and how many baskets ye took up?

Mat|16|10| Neither the seven loaves of the four thousand, and how many baskets ye took up?

Mat|16|11| How is it that ye do not understand that I spake it not to you concerning bread, that ye should beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and of the Sadducees?

Mat|16|12| Then understood they how that he bade them not beware of the leaven of bread, but of the doctrine of the Pharisees and of the Sadducees.

Mat|16|13| When Jesus came into the coasts of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, saying, Whom do men say that I the Son of man am?

Mat|16|14| And they said, Some say that thou art John the Baptist: some, Elias; and others, Jeremias, or one of the prophets.

Mat|16|15| He saith unto them, But whom say ye that I am?

Mat|16|16| And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God.

Mat|16|17| And Jesus answered and said unto him, Blessed art thou, Simon Barjona: for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but my Father which is in heaven.

Mat|16|18| And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.

Mat|16|19| And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.

Mat|16|20| Then charged he his disciples that they should tell no man that he was Jesus the Christ.

Mat|16|21| From that time forth began Jesus to shew unto his disciples, how that he must go unto Jerusalem, and suffer many things of the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be killed, and be raised again the third day.

Mat|16|22| Then Peter took him, and began to rebuke him, saying, Be it far from thee, Lord: this shall not be unto thee.

Mat|16|23| But he turned, and said unto Peter, Get thee behind me, Satan: thou art an offence unto me: for thou savourest not the things that be of God, but those that be of men.

Mat|16|24| Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me.

Mat|16|25| For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: and whosoever will lose his life for my sake shall find it.

Mat|16|26| For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?

Mat|16|27| For the Son of man shall come in the glory of his Father with his angels; and then he shall reward every man according to his works.

Mat|16|28| Verily I say unto you, There be some standing here, which shall not taste of death, till they see the Son of man coming in his kingdom.

Mat|17|1| And after six days Jesus taketh Peter, James, and John his brother, and bringeth them up into an high mountain apart,

Mat|17|2| And was transfigured before them: and his face did shine as the sun, and his raiment was white as the light.

Mat|17|3| And, behold, there appeared unto them Moses and Elias talking with him.

Mat|17|4| Then answered Peter, and said unto Jesus, Lord, it is good for us to be here: if thou wilt, let us make here three tabernacles; one for thee, and one for Moses, and one for Elias.

Mat|17|5| While he yet spake, behold, a bright cloud overshadowed them: and behold a voice out of the cloud, which said, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased; hear ye him.

Mat|17|6| And when the disciples heard it, they fell on their face, and were sore afraid.

Mat|17|7| And Jesus came and touched them, and said, Arise, and be not afraid.

Mat|17|8| And when they had lifted up their eyes, they saw no man, save Jesus only.

Mat|17|9| And as they came down from the mountain, Jesus charged them, saying, Tell the vision to no man, until the Son of man be risen again from the dead.

Mat|17|10| And his disciples asked him, saying, Why then say the scribes that Elias must first come?

Mat|17|11| And Jesus answered and said unto them, Elias truly shall first come, and restore all things.

Mat|17|12| But I say unto you, That Elias is come already, and they knew him not, but have done unto him whatsoever they listed. Likewise shall also the Son of man suffer of them.

Mat|17|13| Then the disciples understood that he spake unto them of John the Baptist.

Mat|17|14| And when they were come to the multitude, there came to him a certain man, kneeling down to him, and saying,

Mat|17|15| Lord, have mercy on my son: for he is lunatick, and sore vexed: for ofttimes he falleth into the fire, and oft into the water.

Mat|17|16| And I brought him to thy disciples, and they could not cure him.

Mat|17|17| Then Jesus answered and said, O faithless and perverse generation, how long shall I be with you? how long shall I suffer you? bring him hither to me.

Mat|17|18| And Jesus rebuked the devil; and he departed out of him: and the child was cured from that very hour.

Mat|17|19| Then came the disciples to Jesus apart, and said, Why could not we cast him out?

Mat|17|20| And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you.

Mat|17|21| Howbeit this kind goeth not out but by prayer and fasting.

Mat|17|22| And while they abode in Galilee, Jesus said unto them, The Son of man shall be betrayed into the hands of men:

Mat|17|23| And they shall kill him, and the third day he shall be raised again. And they were exceeding sorry.

Mat|17|24| And when they were come to Capernaum, they that received tribute money came to Peter, and said, Doth not your master pay tribute?

Mat|17|25| He saith, Yes. And when he was come into the house, Jesus prevented him, saying, What thinkest thou, Simon? of whom do the kings of the earth take custom or tribute? of their own children, or of strangers?

Mat|17|26| Peter saith unto him, Of strangers. Jesus saith unto him, Then are the children free.

Mat|17|27| Notwithstanding, lest we should offend them, go thou to the sea, and cast an hook, and take up the fish that first cometh up; and when thou hast opened his mouth, thou shalt find a piece of money: that take, and give unto them for me and thee.

Mat|18|1| At the same time came the disciples unto Jesus, saying, Who is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven?

Mat|18|2| And Jesus called a little child unto him, and set him in the midst of them,

Mat|18|3| And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven.

Mat|18|4| Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven.

Mat|18|5| And whoso shall receive one such little child in my name receiveth me.

Mat|18|6| But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea.

Mat|18|7| Woe unto the world because of offences! for it must needs be that offences come; but woe to that man by whom the offence cometh!

Mat|18|8| Wherefore if thy hand or thy foot offend thee, cut them off, and cast them from thee: it is better for thee to enter into life halt or maimed, rather than having two hands or two feet to be cast into everlasting fire.

Mat|18|9| And if thine eye offend thee, pluck it out, and cast it from thee: it is better for thee to enter into life with one eye, rather than having two eyes to be cast into hell fire.

Mat|18|10| Take heed that ye despise not one of these little ones; for I say unto you, That in heaven their angels do always behold the face of my Father which is in heaven.

Mat|18|11| For the Son of man is come to save that which was lost.

Mat|18|12| How think ye? 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?

Mat|18|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.

Mat|18|14| Even so it is not the will of your Father which is in heaven, that one of these little ones should perish.

Mat|18|15| 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.

Mat|18|16| But if he will not hear thee, then take with thee one or two more, that in the mouth of two or three witnesses every word may be established.

Mat|18|17| And if he shall neglect to hear them, tell it unto the church: but if he neglect to hear the church, let him be unto thee as an heathen man and a publican.

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

Mat|18|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.

Mat|18|20| For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.

Mat|18|21| Then came Peter to him, and said, Lord, how oft shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? till seven times?

Mat|18|22| Jesus saith unto him, I say not unto thee, Until seven times: but, Until seventy times seven.

Mat|18|23| Therefore is the kingdom of heaven likened unto a certain king, which would take account of his servants.

Mat|18|24| And when he had begun to reckon, one was brought unto him, which owed him ten thousand talents.

Mat|18|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.

Mat|18|26| The servant therefore fell down, and worshipped him, saying, Lord, have patience with me, and I will pay thee all.

Mat|18|27| Then the lord of that servant was moved with compassion, and loosed him, and forgave him the debt.

Mat|18|28| But the same servant went out, and found one of his fellowservants, which owed him an hundred pence: and he laid hands on him, and took him by the throat, saying, Pay me that thou owest.

Mat|18|29| And his fellowservant fell down at his feet, and besought him, saying, Have patience with me, and I will pay thee all.

Mat|18|30| And he would not: but went and cast him into prison, till he should pay the debt.

Mat|18|31| So when his fellowservants saw what was done, they were very sorry, and came and told unto their lord all that was done.

Mat|18|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:

Mat|18|33| Shouldest not thou also have had compassion on thy fellowservant, even as I had pity on thee?

Mat|18|34| And his lord was wroth, and delivered him to the tormentors, till he should pay all that was due unto him.

Mat|18|35| So likewise shall my heavenly Father do also unto you, if ye from your hearts forgive not every one his brother their trespasses.

Mat|19|1| And it came to pass, that when Jesus had finished these sayings, he departed from Galilee, and came into the coasts of Judaea beyond Jordan;

Mat|19|2| And great multitudes followed him; and he healed them there.

Mat|19|3| The Pharisees also came unto him, tempting him, and saying unto him, Is it lawful for a man to put away his wife for every cause?

Mat|19|4| And he answered and said unto them, Have ye not read, that he which made them at the beginning made them male and female,

Mat|19|5| And said, For this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they twain shall be one flesh?

Mat|19|6| Wherefore they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder.

Mat|19|7| They say unto him, Why did Moses then command to give a writing of divorcement, and to put her away?

Mat|19|8| He saith unto them, Moses because of the hardness of your hearts suffered you to put away your wives: but from the beginning it was not so.

Mat|19|9| And I say unto you, Whosoever shall put away his wife, except it be for fornication, and shall marry another, committeth adultery: and whoso marrieth her which is put away doth commit adultery.

Mat|19|10| His disciples say unto him, If the case of the man be so with his wife, it is not good to marry.

Mat|19|11| But he said unto them, All men cannot receive this saying, save they to whom it is given.

Mat|19|12| For there are some eunuchs, which were so born from their mother's womb: and there are some eunuchs, which were made eunuchs of men: and there be eunuchs, which have made themselves eunuchs for the kingdom of heaven's sake. He that is able to receive it, let him receive it.

Mat|19|13| Then were there brought unto him little children, that he should put his hands on them, and pray: and the disciples rebuked them.

Mat|19|14| But Jesus said, Suffer little children, and forbid them not, to come unto me: for of such is the kingdom of heaven.

Mat|19|15| And he laid his hands on them, and departed thence.

Mat|19|16| And, behold, one came and said unto him, Good Master, what good thing shall I do, that I may have eternal life?

Mat|19|17| And he said unto him, Why callest thou me good? there is none good but one, that is, God: but if thou wilt enter into life, keep the commandments.

Mat|19|18| He saith unto him, Which? Jesus said, Thou shalt do no murder, Thou shalt not commit adultery, Thou shalt not steal, Thou shalt not bear false witness,

Mat|19|19| Honour thy father and thy mother: and, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.

Mat|19|20| The young man saith unto him, All these things have I kept from my youth up: what lack I yet?

Mat|19|21| Jesus said unto him, If thou wilt be perfect, go and sell that thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come and follow me.

Mat|19|22| But when the young man heard that saying, he went away sorrowful: for he had great possessions.

Mat|19|23| Then said Jesus unto his disciples, Verily I say unto you, That a rich man shall hardly enter into the kingdom of heaven.

Mat|19|24| And again I say unto you, It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God.

Mat|19|25| When his disciples heard it, they were exceedingly amazed, saying, Who then can be saved?

Mat|19|26| But Jesus beheld them, and said unto them, With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible.

Mat|19|27| Then answered Peter and said unto him, Behold, we have forsaken all, and followed thee; what shall we have therefore?

Mat|19|28| And Jesus said unto them, Verily I say unto you, That ye which have followed me, in the regeneration when the Son of man shall sit in the throne of his glory, ye also shall sit upon twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel.

Mat|19|29| And every one that hath forsaken houses, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for my name's sake, shall receive an hundredfold, and shall inherit everlasting life.

Mat|19|30| But many that are first shall be last; and the last shall be first.

Mat|20|1| For the kingdom of heaven is like unto a man that is an householder, which went out early in the morning to hire labourers into his vineyard.

Mat|20|2| And when he had agreed with the labourers for a penny a day, he sent them into his vineyard.

Mat|20|3| And he went out about the third hour, and saw others standing idle in the marketplace,

Mat|20|4| And said unto them; Go ye also into the vineyard, and whatsoever is right I will give you. And they went their way.

Mat|20|5| Again he went out about the sixth and ninth hour, and did likewise.

Mat|20|6| And about the eleventh hour he went out, and found others standing idle, and saith unto them, Why stand ye here all the day idle?

Mat|20|7| They say unto him, Because no man hath hired us. He saith unto them, Go ye also into the vineyard; and whatsoever is right, that shall ye receive.

Mat|20|8| So when even was come, the lord of the vineyard saith unto his steward, Call the labourers, and give them their hire, beginning from the last unto the first.

Mat|20|9| And when they came that were hired about the eleventh hour, they received every man a penny.

Mat|20|10| But when the first came, they supposed that they should have received more; and they likewise received every man a penny.

Mat|20|11| And when they had received it, they murmured against the goodman of the house,

Mat|20|12| Saying, These last have wrought but one hour, and thou hast made them equal unto us, which have borne the burden and heat of the day.

Mat|20|13| But he answered one of them, and said, Friend, I do thee no wrong: didst not thou agree with me for a penny?

Mat|20|14| Take that thine is, and go thy way: I will give unto this last, even as unto thee.

Mat|20|15| Is it not lawful for me to do what I will with mine own? Is thine eye evil, because I am good?

Mat|20|16| So the last shall be first, and the first last: for many be called, but few chosen.

Mat|20|17| And Jesus going up to Jerusalem took the twelve disciples apart in the way, and said unto them,

Mat|20|18| Behold, we go up to Jerusalem; and the Son of man shall be betrayed unto the chief priests and unto the scribes, and they shall condemn him to death,

Mat|20|19| And shall deliver him to the Gentiles to mock, and to scourge, and to crucify him: and the third day he shall rise again.

Mat|20|20| Then came to him the mother of Zebedees children with her sons, worshipping him, and desiring a certain thing of him.

Mat|20|21| And he said unto her, What wilt thou? She saith unto him, Grant that these my two sons may sit, the one on thy right hand, and the other on the left, in thy kingdom.

Mat|20|22| But Jesus answered and said, Ye know not what ye ask. Are ye able to drink of the cup that I shall drink of, and to be baptized with the baptism that I am baptized with? They say unto him, We are able.

Mat|20|23| And he saith unto them, Ye shall drink indeed of my cup, and be baptized with the baptism that I am baptized with: but to sit on my right hand, and on my left, is not mine to give, but it shall be given to them for whom it is prepared of my Father.

Mat|20|24| And when the ten heard it, they were moved with indignation against the two brethren.

Mat|20|25| But Jesus called them unto him, and said, Ye know that the princes of the Gentiles exercise dominion over them, and they that are great exercise authority upon them.

Mat|20|26| But it shall not be so among you: but whosoever will be great among you, let him be your minister;

Mat|20|27| And whosoever will be chief among you, let him be your servant:

Mat|20|28| Even as the Son of man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give his life a ransom for many.

Mat|20|29| And as they departed from Jericho, a great multitude followed him.

Mat|20|30| And, behold, two blind men sitting by the way side, when they heard that Jesus passed by, cried out, saying, Have mercy on us, O Lord, thou son of David.

Mat|20|31| And the multitude rebuked them, because they should hold their peace: but they cried the more, saying, Have mercy on us, O Lord, thou son of David.

Mat|20|32| And Jesus stood still, and called them, and said, What will ye that I shall do unto you?

Mat|20|33| They say unto him, Lord, that our eyes may be opened.

Mat|20|34| So Jesus had compassion on them, and touched their eyes: and immediately their eyes received sight, and they followed him.

Mat|21|1| And when they drew nigh unto Jerusalem, and were come to Bethphage, unto the mount of Olives, then sent Jesus two disciples,

Mat|21|2| Saying unto them, Go into the village over against you, and straightway ye shall find an ass tied, and a colt with her: loose them, and bring them unto me.

Mat|21|3| And if any man say ought unto you, ye shall say, The Lord hath need of them; and straightway he will send them.

Mat|21|4| All this was done, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, saying,

Mat|21|5| Tell ye the daughter of Sion, Behold, thy King cometh unto thee, meek, and sitting upon an ass, and a colt the foal of an ass.

Mat|21|6| And the disciples went, and did as Jesus commanded them,

Mat|21|7| And brought the ass, and the colt, and put on them their clothes, and they set him thereon.

Mat|21|8| And a very great multitude spread their garments in the way; others cut down branches from the trees, and strawed them in the way.

Mat|21|9| And the multitudes that went before, and that followed, cried, saying, Hosanna to the son of David: Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord; Hosanna in the highest.

Mat|21|10| And when he was come into Jerusalem, all the city was moved, saying, Who is this?

Mat|21|11| And the multitude said, This is Jesus the prophet of Nazareth of Galilee.

Mat|21|12| And Jesus went into the temple of God, and cast out all them that sold and bought in the temple, and overthrew the tables of the moneychangers, and the seats of them that sold doves,

Mat|21|13| And said unto them, It is written, My house shall be called the house of prayer; but ye have made it a den of thieves.

Mat|21|14| And the blind and the lame came to him in the temple; and he healed them.

Mat|21|15| And when the chief priests and scribes saw the wonderful things that he did, and the children crying in the temple, and saying, Hosanna to the son of David; they were sore displeased,

Mat|21|16| And said unto him, Hearest thou what these say? And Jesus saith unto them, Yea; have ye never read, Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings thou hast perfected praise?

Mat|21|17| And he left them, and went out of the city into Bethany; and he lodged there.

Mat|21|18| Now in the morning as he returned into the city, he hungered.

Mat|21|19| And when he saw a fig tree in the way, he came to it, and found nothing thereon, but leaves only, and said unto it, Let no fruit grow on thee henceforward for ever. And presently the fig tree withered away.

Mat|21|20| And when the disciples saw it, they marvelled, saying, How soon is the fig tree withered away!

Mat|21|21| Jesus answered and said unto them, Verily I say unto you, If ye have faith, and doubt not, ye shall not only do this which is done to the fig tree, but also if ye shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; it shall be done.

Mat|21|22| And all things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive.

Mat|21|23| And when he was come into the temple, the chief priests and the elders of the people came unto him as he was teaching, and said, By what authority doest thou these things? and who gave thee this authority?

Mat|21|24| And Jesus answered and said unto them, I also will ask you one thing, which if ye tell me, I in like wise will tell you by what authority I do these things.

Mat|21|25| The baptism of John, whence was it? from heaven, or of men? And they reasoned with themselves, saying, If we shall say, From heaven; he will say unto us, Why did ye not then believe him?

Mat|21|26| But if we shall say, Of men; we fear the people; for all hold John as a prophet.

Mat|21|27| And they answered Jesus, and said, We cannot tell. And he said unto them, Neither tell I you by what authority I do these things.

Mat|21|28| But what think ye? A certain man had two sons; and he came to the first, and said, Son, go work to day in my vineyard.

Mat|21|29| He answered and said, I will not: but afterward he repented, and went.

Mat|21|30| And he came to the second, and said likewise. And he answered and said, I go, sir: and went not.

Mat|21|31| Whether of them twain did the will of his father? They say unto him, The first. Jesus saith unto them, Verily I say unto you, That the publicans and the harlots go into the kingdom of God before you.

Mat|21|32| For John came unto you in the way of righteousness, and ye believed him not: but the publicans and the harlots believed him: and ye, when ye had seen it, repented not afterward, that ye might believe him.

Mat|21|33| Hear another parable: There was a certain householder, which planted a vineyard, and hedged it round about, and digged a winepress in it, and built a tower, and let it out to husbandmen, and went into a far country:

Mat|21|34| And when the time of the fruit drew near, he sent his servants to the husbandmen, that they might receive the fruits of it.

Mat|21|35| And the husbandmen took his servants, and beat one, and killed another, and stoned another.

Mat|21|36| Again, he sent other servants more than the first: and they did unto them likewise.

Mat|21|37| But last of all he sent unto them his son, saying, They will reverence my son.

Mat|21|38| But when the husbandmen saw the son, they said among themselves, This is the heir; come, let us kill him, and let us seize on his inheritance.

Mat|21|39| And they caught him, and cast him out of the vineyard, and slew him.

Mat|21|40| When the lord therefore of the vineyard cometh, what will he do unto those husbandmen?

Mat|21|41| They say unto him, He will miserably destroy those wicked men, and will let out his vineyard unto other husbandmen, which shall render him the fruits in their seasons.

Mat|21|42| Jesus saith unto them, Did ye never read in the scriptures, The stone which the builders rejected, the same is become the head of the corner: this is the Lord's doing, and it is marvellous in our eyes?

Mat|21|43| Therefore say I unto you, The kingdom of God shall be taken from you, and given to a nation bringing forth the fruits thereof.

Mat|21|44| And whosoever shall fall on this stone shall be broken: but on whomsoever it shall fall, it will grind him to powder.

Mat|21|45| And when the chief priests and Pharisees had heard his parables, they perceived that he spake of them.

Mat|21|46| But when they sought to lay hands on him, they feared the multitude, because they took him for a prophet.

Mat|22|1| And Jesus answered and spake unto them again by parables, and said,

Mat|22|2| The kingdom of heaven is like unto a certain king, which made a marriage for his son,

Mat|22|3| And sent forth his servants to call them that were bidden to the wedding: and they would not come.

Mat|22|4| Again, he sent forth other servants, saying, Tell them which are bidden, Behold, I have prepared my dinner: my oxen and my fatlings are killed, and all things are ready: come unto the marriage.

Mat|22|5| But they made light of it, and went their ways, one to his farm, another to his merchandise:

Mat|22|6| And the remnant took his servants, and entreated them spitefully, and slew them.

Mat|22|7| But when the king heard thereof, he was wroth: and he sent forth his armies, and destroyed those murderers, and burned up their city.

Mat|22|8| Then saith he to his servants, The wedding is ready, but they which were bidden were not worthy.

Mat|22|9| Go ye therefore into the highways, and as many as ye shall find, bid to the marriage.

Mat|22|10| So those servants went out into the highways, and gathered together all as many as they found, both bad and good: and the wedding was furnished with guests.

Mat|22|11| And when the king came in to see the guests, he saw there a man which had not on a wedding garment:

Mat|22|12| And he saith unto him, Friend, how camest thou in hither not having a wedding garment? And he was speechless.

Mat|22|13| Then said the king to the servants, Bind him hand and foot, and take him away, and cast him into outer darkness, there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

Mat|22|14| For many are called, but few are chosen.

Mat|22|15| Then went the Pharisees, and took counsel how they might entangle him in his talk.

Mat|22|16| And they sent out unto him their disciples with the Herodians, saying, Master, we know that thou art true, and teachest the way of God in truth, neither carest thou for any man: for thou regardest not the person of men.

Mat|22|17| Tell us therefore, What thinkest thou? Is it lawful to give tribute unto Caesar, or not?

Mat|22|18| But Jesus perceived their wickedness, and said, Why tempt ye me, ye hypocrites?

Mat|22|19| Shew me the tribute money. And they brought unto him a penny.

Mat|22|20| And he saith unto them, Whose is this image and superscription?

Mat|22|21| They say unto him, Caesar's. Then saith he unto them, Render therefore unto Caesar the things which are Caesar's; and unto God the things that are God's.

Mat|22|22| When they had heard these words, they marvelled, and left him, and went their way.

Mat|22|23| The same day came to him the Sadducees, which say that there is no resurrection, and asked him,

Mat|22|24| Saying, Master, Moses said, If a man die, having no children, his brother shall marry his wife, and raise up seed unto his brother.

Mat|22|25| Now there were with us seven brethren: and the first, when he had married a wife, deceased, and, having no issue, left his wife unto his brother:

Mat|22|26| Likewise the second also, and the third, unto the seventh.

Mat|22|27| And last of all the woman died also.

Mat|22|28| Therefore in the resurrection whose wife shall she be of the seven?for they all had her.

Mat|22|29| Jesus answered and said unto them, Ye do err, not knowing the scriptures, nor the power of God.

Mat|22|30| For in the resurrection they neither marry, nor are given in marriage, but are as the angels of God in heaven.

Mat|22|31| But as touching the resurrection of the dead, have ye not read that which was spoken unto you by God, saying,

Mat|22|32| I am the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob?God is not the God of the dead, but of the living.

Mat|22|33| And when the multitude heard this, they were astonished at his doctrine.

Mat|22|34| But when the Pharisees had heard that he had put the Sadducees to silence, they were gathered together.

Mat|22|35| Then one of them, which was a lawyer, asked him a question, tempting him, and saying,

Mat|22|36| Master, which is the great commandment in the law?

Mat|22|37| Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.

Mat|22|38| This is the first and great commandment.

Mat|22|39| And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.

Mat|22|40| On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.

Mat|22|41| While the Pharisees were gathered together, Jesus asked them,

Mat|22|42| Saying, What think ye of Christ? whose son is he? They say unto him, The son of David.

Mat|22|43| He saith unto them, How then doth David in spirit call him Lord, saying,

Mat|22|44| The LORD said unto my Lord, Sit thou on my right hand, till I make thine enemies thy footstool?

Mat|22|45| If David then call him Lord, how is he his son?

Mat|22|46| And no man was able to answer him a word, neither durst any man from that day forth ask him any more questions.

Mat|23|1| Then spake Jesus to the multitude, and to his disciples,

Mat|23|2| Saying The scribes and the Pharisees sit in Moses' seat:

Mat|23|3| All therefore whatsoever they bid you observe, that observe and do; but do not ye after their works: for they say, and do not.

Mat|23|4| For they bind heavy burdens and grievous to be borne, and lay them on men's shoulders; but they themselves will not move them with one of their fingers.

Mat|23|5| But all their works they do for to be seen of men: they make broad their phylacteries, and enlarge the borders of their garments,

Mat|23|6| And love the uppermost rooms at feasts, and the chief seats in the synagogues,

Mat|23|7| And greetings in the markets, and to be called of men, Rabbi, Rabbi.

Mat|23|8| But be not ye called Rabbi: for one is your Master, even Christ; and all ye are brethren.

Mat|23|9| And call no man your father upon the earth: for one is your Father, which is in heaven.

Mat|23|10| Neither be ye called masters: for one is your Master, even Christ.

Mat|23|11| But he that is greatest among you shall be your servant.

Mat|23|12| And whosoever shall exalt himself shall be abased; and he that shall humble himself shall be exalted.

Mat|23|13| But woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye shut up the kingdom of heaven against men: for ye neither go in yourselves, neither suffer ye them that are entering to go in.

Mat|23|14| Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye devour widows' houses, and for a pretence make long prayer: therefore ye shall receive the greater damnation.

Mat|23|15| Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye compass sea and land to make one proselyte, and when he is made, ye make him twofold more the child of hell than yourselves.

Mat|23|16| Woe unto you, ye blind guides, which say, Whosoever shall swear by the temple, it is nothing; but whosoever shall swear by the gold of the temple, he is a debtor!

Mat|23|17| Ye fools and blind: for whether is greater, the gold, or the temple that sanctifieth the gold?

Mat|23|18| And, Whosoever shall swear by the altar, it is nothing; but whosoever sweareth by the gift that is upon it, he is guilty.

Mat|23|19| Ye fools and blind: for whether is greater, the gift, or the altar that sanctifieth the gift?

Mat|23|20| Whoso therefore shall swear by the altar, sweareth by it, and by all things thereon.

Mat|23|21| And whoso shall swear by the temple, sweareth by it, and by him that dwelleth therein.

Mat|23|22| And he that shall swear by heaven, sweareth by the throne of God, and by him that sitteth thereon.

Mat|23|23| Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye pay tithe of mint and anise and cummin, and have omitted the weightier matters of the law, judgment, mercy, and faith: these ought ye to have done, and not to leave the other undone.

Mat|23|24| Ye blind guides, which strain at a gnat, and swallow a camel.

Mat|23|25| Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye make clean the outside of the cup and of the platter, but within they are full of extortion and excess.

Mat|23|26| Thou blind Pharisee, cleanse first that which is within the cup and platter, that the outside of them may be clean also.

Mat|23|27| Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye are like unto whited sepulchres, which indeed appear beautiful outward, but are within full of dead men's bones, and of all uncleanness.

Mat|23|28| Even so ye also outwardly appear righteous unto men, but within ye are full of hypocrisy and iniquity.

Mat|23|29| Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! because ye build the tombs of the prophets, and garnish the sepulchres of the righteous,

Mat|23|30| And say, If we had been in the days of our fathers, we would not have been partakers with them in the blood of the prophets.

Mat|23|31| Wherefore ye be witnesses unto yourselves, that ye are the children of them which killed the prophets.

Mat|23|32| Fill ye up then the measure of your fathers.

Mat|23|33| Ye serpents, ye generation of vipers, how can ye escape the damnation of hell?

Mat|23|34| Wherefore, behold, I send unto you prophets, and wise men, and scribes: and some of them ye shall kill and crucify; and some of them shall ye scourge in your synagogues, and persecute them from city to city:

Mat|23|35| That upon you may come all the righteous blood shed upon the earth, from the blood of righteous Abel unto the blood of Zacharias son of Barachias, whom ye slew between the temple and the altar.

Mat|23|36| Verily I say unto you, All these things shall come upon this generation.

Mat|23|37| O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, thou that killest the prophets, and stonest them which are sent unto thee, how often would I have gathered thy children together, even as a hen gathereth her chickens under her wings, and ye would not!

Mat|23|38| Behold, your house is left unto you desolate.

Mat|23|39| For I say unto you, Ye shall not see me henceforth, till ye shall say, Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord.

Mat|24|1| And Jesus went out, and departed from the temple: and his disciples came to him for to shew him the buildings of the temple.

Mat|24|2| And Jesus said unto them, See ye not all these things? verily I say unto you, There shall not be left here one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down.

Mat|24|3| And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world?

Mat|24|4| And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you.

Mat|24|5| For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.

Mat|24|6| And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.

Mat|24|7| For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.

Mat|24|8| All these are the beginning of sorrows.

Mat|24|9| Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name's sake.

Mat|24|10| And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another.

Mat|24|11| And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many.

Mat|24|12| And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.

Mat|24|13| But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.

Mat|24|14| And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.

Mat|24|15| When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:)

Mat|24|16| Then let them which be in Judaea flee into the mountains:

Mat|24|17| Let him which is on the housetop not come down to take any thing out of his house:

Mat|24|18| Neither let him which is in the field return back to take his clothes.

Mat|24|19| And woe unto them that are with child, and to them that give suck in those days!

Mat|24|20| But pray ye that your flight be not in the winter, neither on the sabbath day:

Mat|24|21| For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.

Mat|24|22| And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect's sake those days shall be shortened.

Mat|24|23| Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or there; believe it not.

Mat|24|24| For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.

Mat|24|25| Behold, I have told you before.

Mat|24|26| Wherefore if they shall say unto you, Behold, he is in the desert; go not forth: behold, he is in the secret chambers; believe it not.

Mat|24|27| For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.

Mat|24|28| For wheresoever the carcase is, there will the eagles be gathered together.

Mat|24|29| Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken:

Mat|24|30| And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.

Mat|24|31| And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.

Mat|24|32| Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is nigh:

Mat|24|33| So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors.

Mat|24|34| Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled.

Mat|24|35| Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.

Mat|24|36| But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.

Mat|24|37| But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.

Mat|24|38| For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark,

Mat|24|39| And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.

Mat|24|40| Then shall two be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left.

Mat|24|41| Two women shall be grinding at the mill; the one shall be taken, and the other left.

Mat|24|42| Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come.

Mat|24|43| But know this, that if the goodman of the house had known in what watch the thief would come, he would have watched, and would not have suffered his house to be broken up.

Mat|24|44| Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh.

Mat|24|45| Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom his lord hath made ruler over his household, to give them meat in due season?

Mat|24|46| Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he cometh shall find so doing.

Mat|24|47| Verily I say unto you, That he shall make him ruler over all his goods.

Mat|24|48| But and if that evil servant shall say in his heart, My lord delayeth his coming;

Mat|24|49| And shall begin to smite his fellowservants, and to eat and drink with the drunken;

Mat|24|50| The lord of that servant shall come in a day when he looketh not for him, and in an hour that he is not aware of,

Mat|24|51| And shall cut him asunder, and appoint him his portion with the hypocrites: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

Mat|25|1| Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins, which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom.

Mat|25|2| And five of them were wise, and five were foolish.

Mat|25|3| They that were foolish took their lamps, and took no oil with them:

Mat|25|4| But the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps.

Mat|25|5| While the bridegroom tarried, they all slumbered and slept.

Mat|25|6| And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him.

Mat|25|7| Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps.

Mat|25|8| And the foolish said unto the wise, Give us of your oil; for our lamps are gone out.

Mat|25|9| But the wise answered, saying, Not so; lest there be not enough for us and you: but go ye rather to them that sell, and buy for yourselves.

Mat|25|10| And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came; and they that were ready went in with him to the marriage: and the door was shut.

Mat|25|11| Afterward came also the other virgins, saying, Lord, Lord, open to us.

Mat|25|12| But he answered and said, Verily I say unto you, I know you not.

Mat|25|13| Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh.

Mat|25|14| For the kingdom of heaven is as a man travelling into a far country, who called his own servants, and delivered unto them his goods.

Mat|25|15| And unto one he gave five talents, to another two, and to another one; to every man according to his several ability; and straightway took his journey.

Mat|25|16| Then he that had received the five talents went and traded with the same, and made them other five talents.

Mat|25|17| And likewise he that had received two, he also gained other two.

Mat|25|18| But he that had received one went and digged in the earth, and hid his lord's money.

Mat|25|19| After a long time the lord of those servants cometh, and reckoneth with them.

Mat|25|20| And so he that had received five talents came and brought other five talents, saying, Lord, thou deliveredst unto me five talents: behold, I have gained beside them five talents more.

Mat|25|21| His lord said unto him, Well done, thou good and faithful servant: thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord.

Mat|25|22| He also that had received two talents came and said, Lord, thou deliveredst unto me two talents: behold, I have gained two other talents beside them.

Mat|25|23| His lord said unto him, Well done, good and faithful servant; thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord.

Mat|25|24| Then he which had received the one talent came and said, Lord, I knew thee that thou art an hard man, reaping where thou hast not sown, and gathering where thou hast not strawed:

Mat|25|25| And I was afraid, and went and hid thy talent in the earth: lo, there thou hast that is thine.

Mat|25|26| His lord answered and said unto him, Thou wicked and slothful servant, thou knewest that I reap where I sowed not, and gather where I have not strawed:

Mat|25|27| Thou oughtest therefore to have put my money to the exchangers, and then at my coming I should have received mine own with usury.

Mat|25|28| Take therefore the talent from him, and give it unto him which hath ten talents.

Mat|25|29| For unto every one that hath shall be given, and he shall have abundance: but from him that hath not shall be taken away even that which he hath.

Mat|25|30| And cast ye the unprofitable servant into outer darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

Mat|25|31| When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory:

Mat|25|32| And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats:

Mat|25|33| And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left.

Mat|25|34| Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world:

Mat|25|35| For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in:

Mat|25|36| Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me.

Mat|25|37| Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink?

Mat|25|38| When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee?

Mat|25|39| Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee?

Mat|25|40| And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.

Mat|25|41| Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels:

Mat|25|42| For I was an hungred, and ye gave me no meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me no drink:

Mat|25|43| I was a stranger, and ye took me not in: naked, and ye clothed me not: sick, and in prison, and ye visited me not.

Mat|25|44| Then shall they also answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, or athirst, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister unto thee?

Mat|25|45| Then shall he answer them, saying, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye did it not to one of the least of these, ye did it not to me.

Mat|25|46| And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal.

Mat|26|1| And it came to pass, when Jesus had finished all these sayings, he said unto his disciples,

Mat|26|2| Ye know that after two days is the feast of the passover, and the Son of man is betrayed to be crucified.

Mat|26|3| Then assembled together the chief priests, and the scribes, and the elders of the people, unto the palace of the high priest, who was called Caiaphas,

Mat|26|4| And consulted that they might take Jesus by subtilty, and kill him.

Mat|26|5| But they said, Not on the feast day, lest there be an uproar among the people.

Mat|26|6| Now when Jesus was in Bethany, in the house of Simon the leper,

Mat|26|7| There came unto him a woman having an alabaster box of very precious ointment, and poured it on his head, as he sat at meat.

Mat|26|8| But when his disciples saw it, they had indignation, saying, To what purpose is this waste?

Mat|26|9| For this ointment might have been sold for much, and given to the poor.

Mat|26|10| When Jesus understood it, he said unto them, Why trouble ye the woman? for she hath wrought a good work upon me.

Mat|26|11| For ye have the poor always with you; but me ye have not always.

Mat|26|12| For in that she hath poured this ointment on my body, she did it for my burial.

Mat|26|13| Verily I say unto you, Wheresoever this gospel shall be preached in the whole world, there shall also this, that this woman hath done, be told for a memorial of her.

Mat|26|14| Then one of the twelve, called Judas Iscariot, went unto the chief priests,

Mat|26|15| And said unto them, What will ye give me, and I will deliver him unto you? And they covenanted with him for thirty pieces of silver.

Mat|26|16| And from that time he sought opportunity to betray him.

Mat|26|17| Now the first day of the feast of unleavened bread the disciples came to Jesus, saying unto him, Where wilt thou that we prepare for thee to eat the passover?

Mat|26|18| And he said, Go into the city to such a man, and say unto him, The Master saith, My time is at hand; I will keep the passover at thy house with my disciples.

Mat|26|19| And the disciples did as Jesus had appointed them; and they made ready the passover.

Mat|26|20| Now when the even was come, he sat down with the twelve.

Mat|26|21| And as they did eat, he said, Verily I say unto you, that one of you shall betray me.

Mat|26|22| And they were exceeding sorrowful, and began every one of them to say unto him, Lord, is it I?

Mat|26|23| And he answered and said, He that dippeth his hand with me in the dish, the same shall betray me.

Mat|26|24| The Son of man goeth as it is written of him: but woe unto that man by whom the Son of man is betrayed! it had been good for that man if he had not been born.

Mat|26|25| Then Judas, which betrayed him, answered and said, Master, is it I?He said unto him, Thou hast said.

Mat|26|26| And as they were eating, Jesus took bread, and blessed it, and brake it, and gave it to the disciples, and said, Take, eat; this is my body.

Mat|26|27| And he took the cup, and gave thanks, and gave it to them, saying, Drink ye all of it;

Mat|26|28| For this is my blood of the new testament, which is shed for many for the remission of sins.

Mat|26|29| But I say unto you, I will not drink henceforth of this fruit of the vine, until that day when I drink it new with you in my Father's kingdom.

Mat|26|30| And when they had sung an hymn, they went out into the mount of Olives.

Mat|26|31| Then saith Jesus unto them, All ye shall be offended because of me this night: for it is written, I will smite the shepherd, and the sheep of the flock shall be scattered abroad.

Mat|26|32| But after I am risen again, I will go before you into Galilee.

Mat|26|33| Peter answered and said unto him, Though all men shall be offended because of thee, yet will I never be offended.

Mat|26|34| Jesus said unto him, Verily I say unto thee, That this night, before the cock crow, thou shalt deny me thrice.

Mat|26|35| Peter said unto him, Though I should die with thee, yet will I not deny thee. Likewise also said all the disciples.

Mat|26|36| Then cometh Jesus with them unto a place called Gethsemane, and saith unto the disciples, Sit ye here, while I go and pray yonder.

Mat|26|37| And he took with him Peter and the two sons of Zebedee, and began to be sorrowful and very heavy.

Mat|26|38| Then saith he unto them, My soul is exceeding sorrowful, even unto death: tarry ye here, and watch with me.

Mat|26|39| And he went a little farther, and fell on his face, and prayed, saying, O my Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me: nevertheless not as I will, but as thou wilt.

Mat|26|40| And he cometh unto the disciples, and findeth them asleep, and saith unto Peter, What, could ye not watch with me one hour?

Mat|26|41| Watch and pray, that ye enter not into temptation: the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.

Mat|26|42| He went away again the second time, and prayed, saying, O my Father, if this cup may not pass away from me, except I drink it, thy will be done.

Mat|26|43| And he came and found them asleep again: for their eyes were heavy.

Mat|26|44| And he left them, and went away again, and prayed the third time, saying the same words.

Mat|26|45| Then cometh he to his disciples, and saith unto them, Sleep on now, and take your rest: behold, the hour is at hand, and the Son of man is betrayed into the hands of sinners.

Mat|26|46| Rise, let us be going: behold, he is at hand that doth betray me.

Mat|26|47| And while he yet spake, lo, Judas, one of the twelve, came, and with him a great multitude with swords and staves, from the chief priests and elders of the people.

Mat|26|48| Now he that betrayed him gave them a sign, saying, Whomsoever I shall kiss, that same is he: hold him fast.

Mat|26|49| And forthwith he came to Jesus, and said, Hail, master; and kissed him.

Mat|26|50| And Jesus said unto him, Friend, wherefore art thou come? Then came they, and laid hands on Jesus and took him.

Mat|26|51| And, behold, one of them which were with Jesus stretched out his hand, and drew his sword, and struck a servant of the high priest's, and smote off his ear.

Mat|26|52| Then said Jesus unto him, Put up again thy sword into his place: for all they that take the sword shall perish with the sword.

Mat|26|53| Thinkest thou that I cannot now pray to my Father, and he shall presently give me more than twelve legions of angels?

Mat|26|54| But how then shall the scriptures be fulfilled, that thus it must be?

Mat|26|55| In that same hour said Jesus to the multitudes, Are ye come out as against a thief with swords and staves for to take me? I sat daily with you teaching in the temple, and ye laid no hold on me.

Mat|26|56| But all this was done, that the scriptures of the prophets might be fulfilled. Then all the disciples forsook him, and fled.

Mat|26|57| And they that had laid hold on Jesus led him away to Caiaphas the high priest, where the scribes and the elders were assembled.

Mat|26|58| But Peter followed him afar off unto the high priest's palace, and went in, and sat with the servants, to see the end.

Mat|26|59| Now the chief priests, and elders, and all the council, sought false witness against Jesus, to put him to death;

Mat|26|60| But found none: yea, though many false witnesses came, yet found they none. At the last came two false witnesses,

Mat|26|61| And said, This fellow said, I am able to destroy the temple of God, and to build it in three days.

Mat|26|62| And the high priest arose, and said unto him, Answerest thou nothing? what is it which these witness against thee?

Mat|26|63| But Jesus held his peace, And the high priest answered and said unto him, I adjure thee by the living God, that thou tell us whether thou be the Christ, the Son of God.

Mat|26|64| Jesus saith unto him, Thou hast said: nevertheless I say unto you, Hereafter shall ye see the Son of man sitting on the right hand of power, and coming in the clouds of heaven.

Mat|26|65| Then the high priest rent his clothes, saying, He hath spoken blasphemy; what further need have we of witnesses? behold, now ye have heard his blasphemy.

Mat|26|66| What think ye? They answered and said, He is guilty of death.

Mat|26|67| Then did they spit in his face, and buffeted him; and others smote him with the palms of their hands,

Mat|26|68| Saying, Prophesy unto us, thou Christ, Who is he that smote thee?

Mat|26|69| Now Peter sat without in the palace: and a damsel came unto him, saying, Thou also wast with Jesus of Galilee.

Mat|26|70| But he denied before them all, saying, I know not what thou sayest.

Mat|26|71| And when he was gone out into the porch, another maid saw him, and said unto them that were there, This fellow was also with Jesus of Nazareth.

Mat|26|72| And again he denied with an oath, I do not know the man.

Mat|26|73| And after a while came unto him they that stood by, and said to Peter, Surely thou also art one of them; for thy speech bewrayeth thee.

Mat|26|74| Then began he to curse and to swear, saying, I know not the man. And immediately the cock crew.

Mat|26|75| And Peter remembered the word of Jesus, which said unto him, Before the cock crow, thou shalt deny me thrice. And he went out, and wept bitterly.

Mat|27|1| When the morning was come, all the chief priests and elders of the people took counsel against Jesus to put him to death:

Mat|27|2| And when they had bound him, they led him away, and delivered him to Pontius Pilate the governor.

Mat|27|3| Then Judas, which had betrayed him, when he saw that he was condemned, repented himself, and brought again the thirty pieces of silver to the chief priests and elders,

Mat|27|4| Saying, I have sinned in that I have betrayed the innocent blood. And they said, What is that to us? see thou to that.

Mat|27|5| And he cast down the pieces of silver in the temple, and departed, and went and hanged himself.

Mat|27|6| And the chief priests took the silver pieces, and said, It is not lawful for to put them into the treasury, because it is the price of blood.

Mat|27|7| And they took counsel, and bought with them the potter's field, to bury strangers in.

Mat|27|8| Wherefore that field was called, The field of blood, unto this day.

Mat|27|9| Then was fulfilled that which was spoken by Jeremy the prophet, saying, And they took the thirty pieces of silver, the price of him that was valued, whom they of the children of Israel did value;

Mat|27|10| And gave them for the potter's field, as the Lord appointed me.

Mat|27|11| And Jesus stood before the governor: and the governor asked him, saying, Art thou the King of the Jews? And Jesus said unto him, Thou sayest.

Mat|27|12| And when he was accused of the chief priests and elders, he answered nothing.

Mat|27|13| Then said Pilate unto him, Hearest thou not how many things they witness against thee?

Mat|27|14| And he answered him to never a word; insomuch that the governor marvelled greatly.

Mat|27|15| Now at that feast the governor was wont to release unto the people a prisoner, whom they would.

Mat|27|16| And they had then a notable prisoner, called Barabbas.

Mat|27|17| Therefore when they were gathered together, Pilate said unto them, Whom will ye that I release unto you? Barabbas, or Jesus which is called Christ?

Mat|27|18| For he knew that for envy they had delivered him.

Mat|27|19| When he was set down on the judgment seat, his wife sent unto him, saying, Have thou nothing to do with that just man: for I have suffered many things this day in a dream because of him.

Mat|27|20| But the chief priests and elders persuaded the multitude that they should ask Barabbas, and destroy Jesus.

Mat|27|21| The governor answered and said unto them, Whether of the twain will ye that I release unto you? They said, Barabbas.

Mat|27|22| Pilate saith unto them, What shall I do then with Jesus which is called Christ? They all say unto him, Let him be crucified.

Mat|27|23| And the governor said, Why, what evil hath he done? But they cried out the more, saying, Let him be crucified.

Mat|27|24| When Pilate saw that he could prevail nothing, but that rather a tumult was made, he took water, and washed his hands before the multitude, saying, I am innocent of the blood of this just person: see ye to it.

Mat|27|25| Then answered all the people, and said, His blood be on us, and on our children.

Mat|27|26| Then released he Barabbas unto them: and when he had scourged Jesus, he delivered him to be crucified.

Mat|27|27| Then the soldiers of the governor took Jesus into the common hall, and gathered unto him the whole band of soldiers.

Mat|27|28| And they stripped him, and put on him a scarlet robe.

Mat|27|29| And when they had platted a crown of thorns, they put it upon his head, and a reed in his right hand: and they bowed the knee before him, and mocked him, saying, Hail, King of the Jews!

Mat|27|30| And they spit upon him, and took the reed, and smote him on the head.

Mat|27|31| And after that they had mocked him, they took the robe off from him, and put his own raiment on him, and led him away to crucify him.

Mat|27|32| And as they came out, they found a man of Cyrene, Simon by name: him they compelled to bear his cross.

Mat|27|33| And when they were come unto a place called Golgotha, that is to say, a place of a skull,

Mat|27|34| They gave him vinegar to drink mingled with gall: and when he had tasted thereof, he would not drink.

Mat|27|35| And they crucified him, and parted his garments, casting lots: that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, They parted my garments among them, and upon my vesture did they cast lots.

Mat|27|36| And sitting down they watched him there;

Mat|27|37| And set up over his head his accusation written, THIS IS JESUS THE KING OF THE JEWS.

Mat|27|38| Then were there two thieves crucified with him, one on the right hand, and another on the left.

Mat|27|39| And they that passed by reviled him, wagging their heads,

Mat|27|40| And saying, Thou that destroyest the temple, and buildest it in three days, save thyself. If thou be the Son of God, come down from the cross.

Mat|27|41| Likewise also the chief priests mocking him, with the scribes and elders, said,

Mat|27|42| He saved others; himself he cannot save. If he be the King of Israel, let him now come down from the cross, and we will believe him.

Mat|27|43| He trusted in God; let him deliver him now, if he will have him: for he said, I am the Son of God.

Mat|27|44| The thieves also, which were crucified with him, cast the same in his teeth.

Mat|27|45| Now from the sixth hour there was darkness over all the land unto the ninth hour.

Mat|27|46| And about the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying, Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani? that is to say, My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?

Mat|27|47| Some of them that stood there, when they heard that, said, This man calleth for Elias.

Mat|27|48| And straightway one of them ran, and took a spunge, and filled it with vinegar, and put it on a reed, and gave him to drink.

Mat|27|49| The rest said, Let be, let us see whether Elias will come to save him.

Mat|27|50| Jesus, when he had cried again with a loud voice, yielded up the ghost.

Mat|27|51| And, behold, the veil of the temple was rent in twain from the top to the bottom; and the earth did quake, and the rocks rent;

Mat|27|52| And the graves were opened; and many bodies of the saints which slept arose,

Mat|27|53| And came out of the graves after his resurrection, and went into the holy city, and appeared unto many.

Mat|27|54| Now when the centurion, and they that were with him, watching Jesus, saw the earthquake, and those things that were done, they feared greatly, saying, Truly this was the Son of God.

Mat|27|55| And many women were there beholding afar off, which followed Jesus from Galilee, ministering unto him:

Mat|27|56| Among which was Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of James and Joses, and the mother of Zebedees children.

Mat|27|57| When the even was come, there came a rich man of Arimathaea, named Joseph, who also himself was Jesus' disciple:

Mat|27|58| He went to Pilate, and begged the body of Jesus. Then Pilate commanded the body to be delivered.

Mat|27|59| And when Joseph had taken the body, he wrapped it in a clean linen cloth,

Mat|27|60| And laid it in his own new tomb, which he had hewn out in the rock: and he rolled a great stone to the door of the sepulchre, and departed.

Mat|27|61| And there was Mary Magdalene, and the other Mary, sitting over against the sepulchre.

Mat|27|62| Now the next day, that followed the day of the preparation, the chief priests and Pharisees came together unto Pilate,

Mat|27|63| Saying, Sir, we remember that that deceiver said, while he was yet alive, After three days I will rise again.

Mat|27|64| Command therefore that the sepulchre be made sure until the third day, lest his disciples come by night, and steal him away, and say unto the people, He is risen from the dead: so the last error shall be worse than the first.

Mat|27|65| Pilate said unto them, Ye have a watch: go your way, make it as sure as ye can.

Mat|27|66| So they went, and made the sepulchre sure, sealing the stone, and setting a watch.

Mat|28|1| In the end of the sabbath, as it began to dawn toward the first day of the week, came Mary Magdalene and the other Mary to see the sepulchre.

Mat|28|2| And, behold, there was a great earthquake: for the angel of the Lord descended from heaven, and came and rolled back the stone from the door, and sat upon it.

Mat|28|3| His countenance was like lightning, and his raiment white as snow:

Mat|28|4| And for fear of him the keepers did shake, and became as dead men.

Mat|28|5| And the angel answered and said unto the women, Fear not ye: for I know that ye seek Jesus, which was crucified.

Mat|28|6| He is not here: for he is risen, as he said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay.

Mat|28|7| And go quickly, and tell his disciples that he is risen from the dead; and, behold, he goeth before you into Galilee; there shall ye see him: lo, I have told you.

Mat|28|8| And they departed quickly from the sepulchre with fear and great joy; and did run to bring his disciples word.

Mat|28|9| And as they went to tell his disciples, behold, Jesus met them, saying, All hail. And they came and held him by the feet, and worshipped him.

Mat|28|10| Then said Jesus unto them, Be not afraid: go tell my brethren that they go into Galilee, and there shall they see me.

Mat|28|11| Now when they were going, behold, some of the watch came into the city, and shewed unto the chief priests all the things that were done.

Mat|28|12| And when they were assembled with the elders, and had taken counsel, they gave large money unto the soldiers,

Mat|28|13| Saying, Say ye, His disciples came by night, and stole him away while we slept.

Mat|28|14| And if this come to the governor's ears, we will persuade him, and secure you.

Mat|28|15| So they took the money, and did as they were taught: and this saying is commonly reported among the Jews until this day.

Mat|28|16| Then the eleven disciples went away into Galilee, into a mountain where Jesus had appointed them.

Mat|28|17| And when they saw him, they worshipped him: but some doubted.

Mat|28|18| And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.

Mat|28|19| Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:

Mat|28|20| Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.

Mar|1|1| The beginning of the gospel of Jesus Christ, the Son of God;

Mar|1|2| As it is written in the prophets, Behold, I send my messenger before thy face, which shall prepare thy way before thee.

Mar|1|3| The voice of one crying in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the Lord, make his paths straight.

Mar|1|4| John did baptize in the wilderness, and preach the baptism of repentance for the remission of sins.

Mar|1|5| And there went out unto him all the land of Judaea, and they of Jerusalem, and were all baptized of him in the river of Jordan, confessing their sins.

Mar|1|6| And John was clothed with camel's hair, and with a girdle of a skin about his loins; and he did eat locusts and wild honey;

Mar|1|7| And preached, saying, There cometh one mightier than I after me, the latchet of whose shoes I am not worthy to stoop down and unloose.

Mar|1|8| I indeed have baptized you with water: but he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost.

Mar|1|9| And it came to pass in those days, that Jesus came from Nazareth of Galilee, and was baptized of John in Jordan.

Mar|1|10| And straightway coming up out of the water, he saw the heavens opened, and the Spirit like a dove descending upon him:

Mar|1|11| And there came a voice from heaven, saying, Thou art my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.

Mar|1|12| And immediately the spirit driveth him into the wilderness.

Mar|1|13| And he was there in the wilderness forty days, tempted of Satan; and was with the wild beasts; and the angels ministered unto him.

Mar|1|14| Now after that John was put in prison, Jesus came into Galilee, preaching the gospel of the kingdom of God,

Mar|1|15| And saying, The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel.

Mar|1|16| Now as he walked by the sea of Galilee, he saw Simon and Andrew his brother casting a net into the sea: for they were fishers.

Mar|1|17| And Jesus said unto them, Come ye after me, and I will make you to become fishers of men.

Mar|1|18| And straightway they forsook their nets, and followed him.

Mar|1|19| And when he had gone a little farther thence, he saw James the son of Zebedee, and John his brother, who also were in the ship mending their nets.

Mar|1|20| And straightway he called them: and they left their father Zebedee in the ship with the hired servants, and went after him.

Mar|1|21| And they went into Capernaum; and straightway on the sabbath day he entered into the synagogue, and taught.

Mar|1|22| And they were astonished at his doctrine: for he taught them as one that had authority, and not as the scribes.

Mar|1|23| And there was in their synagogue a man with an unclean spirit; and he cried out,

Mar|1|24| Saying, Let us alone; what have we to do with thee, thou Jesus of Nazareth? art thou come to destroy us? I know thee who thou art, the Holy One of God.

Mar|1|25| And Jesus rebuked him, saying, Hold thy peace, and come out of him.

Mar|1|26| And when the unclean spirit had torn him, and cried with a loud voice, he came out of him.

Mar|1|27| And they were all amazed, insomuch that they questioned among themselves, saying, What thing is this? what new doctrine is this? for with authority commandeth he even the unclean spirits, and they do obey him.

Mar|1|28| And immediately his fame spread abroad throughout all the region round about Galilee.

Mar|1|29| And forthwith, when they were come out of the synagogue, they entered into the house of Simon and Andrew, with James and John.

Mar|1|30| But Simon's wife's mother lay sick of a fever, and anon they tell him of her.

Mar|1|31| And he came and took her by the hand, and lifted her up; and immediately the fever left her, and she ministered unto them.

Mar|1|32| And at even, when the sun did set, they brought unto him all that were diseased, and them that were possessed with devils.

Mar|1|33| And all the city was gathered together at the door.

Mar|1|34| And he healed many that were sick of divers diseases, and cast out many devils; and suffered not the devils to speak, because they knew him.

Mar|1|35| And in the morning, rising up a great while before day, he went out, and departed into a solitary place, and there prayed.

Mar|1|36| And Simon and they that were with him followed after him.

Mar|1|37| And when they had found him, they said unto him, All men seek for thee.

Mar|1|38| And he said unto them, Let us go into the next towns, that I may preach there also: for therefore came I forth.

Mar|1|39| And he preached in their synagogues throughout all Galilee, and cast out devils.

Mar|1|40| And there came a leper to him, beseeching him, and kneeling down to him, and saying unto him, If thou wilt, thou canst make me clean.

Mar|1|41| And Jesus, moved with compassion, put forth his hand, and touched him, and saith unto him, I will; be thou clean.

Mar|1|42| And as soon as he had spoken, immediately the leprosy departed from him, and he was cleansed.

Mar|1|43| And he straitly charged him, and forthwith sent him away;

Mar|1|44| And saith unto him, See thou say nothing to any man: but go thy way, shew thyself to the priest, and offer for thy cleansing those things which Moses commanded, for a testimony unto them.

Mar|1|45| But he went out, and began to publish it much, and to blaze abroad the matter, insomuch that Jesus could no more openly enter into the city, but was without in desert places: and they came to him from every quarter.

Mar|2|1| And again he entered into Capernaum after some days; and it was noised that he was in the house.

Mar|2|2| And straightway many were gathered together, insomuch that there was no room to receive them, no, not so much as about the door: and he preached the word unto them.

Mar|2|3| And they come unto him, bringing one sick of the palsy, which was borne of four.

Mar|2|4| And when they could not come nigh unto him for the press, they uncovered the roof where he was: and when they had broken it up, they let down the bed wherein the sick of the palsy lay.

Mar|2|5| When Jesus saw their faith, he said unto the sick of the palsy, Son, thy sins be forgiven thee.

Mar|2|6| But there was certain of the scribes sitting there, and reasoning in their hearts,

Mar|2|7| Why doth this man thus speak blasphemies? who can forgive sins but God only?

Mar|2|8| And immediately when Jesus perceived in his spirit that they so reasoned within themselves, he said unto them, Why reason ye these things in your hearts?

Mar|2|9| Whether is it easier to say to the sick of the palsy, Thy sins be forgiven thee; or to say, Arise, and take up thy bed, and walk?

Mar|2|10| But that ye may know that the Son of man hath power on earth to forgive sins, (he saith to the sick of the palsy,)

Mar|2|11| I say unto thee, Arise, and take up thy bed, and go thy way into thine house.

Mar|2|12| And immediately he arose, took up the bed, and went forth before them all; insomuch that they were all amazed, and glorified God, saying, We never saw it on this fashion.

Mar|2|13| And he went forth again by the sea side; and all the multitude resorted unto him, and he taught them.

Mar|2|14| And as he passed by, he saw Levi the son of Alphaeus sitting at the receipt of custom, and said unto him, Follow me. And he arose and followed him.

Mar|2|15| And it came to pass, that, as Jesus sat at meat in his house, many publicans and sinners sat also together with Jesus and his disciples: for there were many, and they followed him.

Mar|2|16| And when the scribes and Pharisees saw him eat with publicans and sinners, they said unto his disciples, How is it that he eateth and drinketh with publicans and sinners?

Mar|2|17| When Jesus heard it, he saith unto them, They that are whole have no need of the physician, but they that are sick: I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.

Mar|2|18| And the disciples of John and of the Pharisees used to fast: and they come and say unto him, Why do the disciples of John and of the Pharisees fast, but thy disciples fast not?

Mar|2|19| And Jesus said unto them, Can the children of the bridechamber fast, while the bridegroom is with them? as long as they have the bridegroom with them, they cannot fast.

Mar|2|20| But the days will come, when the bridegroom shall be taken away from them, and then shall they fast in those days.

Mar|2|21| No man also seweth a piece of new cloth on an old garment: else the new piece that filled it up taketh away from the old, and the rent is made worse.

Mar|2|22| And no man putteth new wine into old bottles: else the new wine doth burst the bottles, and the wine is spilled, and the bottles will be marred: but new wine must be put into new bottles.

Mar|2|23| And it came to pass, that he went through the corn fields on the sabbath day; and his disciples began, as they went, to pluck the ears of corn.

Mar|2|24| And the Pharisees said unto him, Behold, why do they on the sabbath day that which is not lawful?

Mar|2|25| And he said unto them, Have ye never read what David did, when he had need, and was an hungred, he, and they that were with him?

Mar|2|26| How he went into the house of God in the days of Abiathar the high priest, and did eat the shewbread, which is not lawful to eat but for the priests, and gave also to them which were with him?

Mar|2|27| And he said unto them, The sabbath was made for man, and not man for the sabbath:

Mar|2|28| Therefore the Son of man is Lord also of the sabbath.

Mar|3|1| And he entered again into the synagogue; and there was a man there which had a withered hand.

Mar|3|2| And they watched him, whether he would heal him on the sabbath day; that they might accuse him.

Mar|3|3| And he saith unto the man which had the withered hand, Stand forth.

Mar|3|4| And he saith unto them, Is it lawful to do good on the sabbath days, or to do evil? to save life, or to kill? But they held their peace.

Mar|3|5| And when he had looked round about on them with anger, being grieved for the hardness of their hearts, he saith unto the man, Stretch forth thine hand. And he stretched it out: and his hand was restored whole as the other.

Mar|3|6| And the Pharisees went forth, and straightway took counsel with the Herodians against him, how they might destroy him.

Mar|3|7| But Jesus withdrew himself with his disciples to the sea: and a great multitude from Galilee followed him, and from Judaea,

Mar|3|8| And from Jerusalem, and from Idumaea, and from beyond Jordan; and they about Tyre and Sidon, a great multitude, when they had heard what great things he did, came unto him.

Mar|3|9| And he spake to his disciples, that a small ship should wait on him because of the multitude, lest they should throng him.

Mar|3|10| For he had healed many; insomuch that they pressed upon him for to touch him, as many as had plagues.

Mar|3|11| And unclean spirits, when they saw him, fell down before him, and cried, saying, Thou art the Son of God.

Mar|3|12| And he straitly charged them that they should not make him known.

Mar|3|13| And he goeth up into a mountain, and calleth unto him whom he would: and they came unto him.

Mar|3|14| And he ordained twelve, that they should be with him, and that he might send them forth to preach,

Mar|3|15| And to have power to heal sicknesses, and to cast out devils:

Mar|3|16| And Simon he surnamed Peter;

Mar|3|17| And James the son of Zebedee, and John the brother of James; and he surnamed them Boanerges, which is, The sons of thunder:

Mar|3|18| And Andrew, and Philip, and Bartholomew, and Matthew, and Thomas, and James the son of Alphaeus, and Thaddaeus, and Simon the Canaanite,

Mar|3|19| And Judas Iscariot, which also betrayed him: and they went into an house.

Mar|3|20| And the multitude cometh together again, so that they could not so much as eat bread.

Mar|3|21| And when his friends heard of it, they went out to lay hold on him: for they said, He is beside himself.

Mar|3|22| And the scribes which came down from Jerusalem said, He hath Beelzebub, and by the prince of the devils casteth he out devils.

Mar|3|23| And he called them unto him, and said unto them in parables, How can Satan cast out Satan?

Mar|3|24| And if a kingdom be divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand.

Mar|3|25| And if a house be divided against itself, that house cannot stand.

Mar|3|26| And if Satan rise up against himself, and be divided, he cannot stand, but hath an end.

Mar|3|27| No man can enter into a strong man's house, and spoil his goods, except he will first bind the strong man; and then he will spoil his house.

Mar|3|28| Verily I say unto you, All sins shall be forgiven unto the sons of men, and blasphemies wherewith soever they shall blaspheme:

Mar|3|29| But he that shall blaspheme against the Holy Ghost hath never forgiveness, but is in danger of eternal damnation.

Mar|3|30| Because they said, He hath an unclean spirit.

Mar|3|31| There came then his brethren and his mother, and, standing without, sent unto him, calling him.

Mar|3|32| And the multitude sat about him, and they said unto him, Behold, thy mother and thy brethren without seek for thee.

Mar|3|33| And he answered them, saying, Who is my mother, or my brethren?

Mar|3|34| And he looked round about on them which sat about him, and said, Behold my mother and my brethren!

Mar|3|35| For whosoever shall do the will of God, the same is my brother, and my sister, and mother.

Mar|4|1| And he began again to teach by the sea side: and there was gathered unto him a great multitude, so that he entered into a ship, and sat in the sea; and the whole multitude was by the sea on the land.

Mar|4|2| And he taught them many things by parables, and said unto them in his doctrine,

Mar|4|3| Hearken; Behold, there went out a sower to sow:

Mar|4|4| And it came to pass, as he sowed, some fell by the way side, and the fowls of the air came and devoured it up.

Mar|4|5| And some fell on stony ground, where it had not much earth; and immediately it sprang up, because it had no depth of earth:

Mar|4|6| But when the sun was up, it was scorched; and because it had no root, it withered away.

Mar|4|7| And some fell among thorns, and the thorns grew up, and choked it, and it yielded no fruit.

Mar|4|8| And other fell on good ground, and did yield fruit that sprang up and increased; and brought forth, some thirty, and some sixty, and some an hundred.

Mar|4|9| And he said unto them, He that hath ears to hear, let him hear.

Mar|4|10| And when he was alone, they that were about him with the twelve asked of him the parable.

Mar|4|11| And he said unto them, Unto you it is given to know the mystery of the kingdom of God: but unto them that are without, all these things are done in parables:

Mar|4|12| That seeing they may see, and not perceive; and hearing they may hear, and not understand; lest at any time they should be converted, and their sins should be forgiven them.

Mar|4|13| And he said unto them, Know ye not this parable? and how then will ye know all parables?

Mar|4|14| The sower soweth the word.

Mar|4|15| And these are they by the way side, where the word is sown; but when they have heard, Satan cometh immediately, and taketh away the word that was sown in their hearts.

Mar|4|16| And these are they likewise which are sown on stony ground; who, when they have heard the word, immediately receive it with gladness;

Mar|4|17| And have no root in themselves, and so endure but for a time: afterward, when affliction or persecution ariseth for the word's sake, immediately they are offended.

Mar|4|18| And these are they which are sown among thorns; such as hear the word,

Mar|4|19| And the cares of this world, and the deceitfulness of riches, and the lusts of other things entering in, choke the word, and it becometh unfruitful.

Mar|4|20| And these are they which are sown on good ground; such as hear the word, and receive it, and bring forth fruit, some thirtyfold, some sixty, and some an hundred.

Mar|4|21| And he said unto them, Is a candle brought to be put under a bushel, or under a bed? and not to be set on a candlestick?

Mar|4|22| For there is nothing hid, which shall not be manifested; neither was any thing kept secret, but that it should come abroad.

Mar|4|23| If any man have ears to hear, let him hear.

Mar|4|24| And he said unto them, Take heed what ye hear: with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you: and unto you that hear shall more be given.

Mar|4|25| For he that hath, to him shall be given: and he that hath not, from him shall be taken even that which he hath.

Mar|4|26| And he said, So is the kingdom of God, as if a man should cast seed into the ground;

Mar|4|27| And should sleep, and rise night and day, and the seed should spring and grow up, he knoweth not how.

Mar|4|28| For the earth bringeth forth fruit of herself; first the blade, then the ear, after that the full corn in the ear.

Mar|4|29| But when the fruit is brought forth, immediately he putteth in the sickle, because the harvest is come.

Mar|4|30| And he said, Whereunto shall we liken the kingdom of God? or with what comparison shall we compare it?

Mar|4|31| It is like a grain of mustard seed, which, when it is sown in the earth, is less than all the seeds that be in the earth:

Mar|4|32| But when it is sown, it groweth up, and becometh greater than all herbs, and shooteth out great branches; so that the fowls of the air may lodge under the shadow of it.

Mar|4|33| And with many such parables spake he the word unto them, as they were able to hear it.

Mar|4|34| But without a parable spake he not unto them: and when they were alone, he expounded all things to his disciples.

Mar|4|35| And the same day, when the even was come, he saith unto them, Let us pass over unto the other side.

Mar|4|36| And when they had sent away the multitude, they took him even as he was in the ship. And there were also with him other little ships.

Mar|4|37| And there arose a great storm of wind, and the waves beat into the ship, so that it was now full.

Mar|4|38| And he was in the hinder part of the ship, asleep on a pillow: and they awake him, and say unto him, Master, carest thou not that we perish?

Mar|4|39| And he arose, and rebuked the wind, and said unto the sea, Peace, be still. And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm.

Mar|4|40| And he said unto them, Why are ye so fearful? how is it that ye have no faith?

Mar|4|41| And they feared exceedingly, and said one to another, What manner of man is this, that even the wind and the sea obey him?

Mar|5|1| And they came over unto the other side of the sea, into the country of the Gadarenes.

Mar|5|2| And when he was come out of the ship, immediately there met him out of the tombs a man with an unclean spirit,

Mar|5|3| Who had his dwelling among the tombs; and no man could bind him, no, not with chains:

Mar|5|4| Because that he had been often bound with fetters and chains, and the chains had been plucked asunder by him, and the fetters broken in pieces: neither could any man tame him.

Mar|5|5| And always, night and day, he was in the mountains, and in the tombs, crying, and cutting himself with stones.

Mar|5|6| But when he saw Jesus afar off, he ran and worshipped him,

Mar|5|7| And cried with a loud voice, and said, What have I to do with thee, Jesus, thou Son of the most high God? I adjure thee by God, that thou torment me not.

Mar|5|8| For he said unto him, Come out of the man, thou unclean spirit.

Mar|5|9| And he asked him, What is thy name? And he answered, saying, My name is Legion: for we are many.

Mar|5|10| And he besought him much that he would not send them away out of the country.

Mar|5|11| Now there was there nigh unto the mountains a great herd of swine feeding.

Mar|5|12| And all the devils besought him, saying, Send us into the swine, that we may enter into them.

Mar|5|13| And forthwith Jesus gave them leave. And the unclean spirits went out, and entered into the swine: and the herd ran violently down a steep place into the sea, (they were about two thousand;) and were choked in the sea.

Mar|5|14| And they that fed the swine fled, and told it in the city, and in the country. And they went out to see what it was that was done.

Mar|5|15| And they come to Jesus, and see him that was possessed with the devil, and had the legion, sitting, and clothed, and in his right mind: and they were afraid.

Mar|5|16| And they that saw it told them how it befell to him that was possessed with the devil, and also concerning the swine.

Mar|5|17| And they began to pray him to depart out of their coasts.

Mar|5|18| And when he was come into the ship, he that had been possessed with the devil prayed him that he might be with him.

Mar|5|19| Howbeit Jesus suffered him not, but saith unto him, Go home to thy friends, and tell them how great things the Lord hath done for thee, and hath had compassion on thee.

Mar|5|20| And he departed, and began to publish in Decapolis how great things Jesus had done for him: and all men did marvel.

Mar|5|21| And when Jesus was passed over again by ship unto the other side, much people gathered unto him: and he was nigh unto the sea.

Mar|5|22| And, behold, there cometh one of the rulers of the synagogue, Jairus by name; and when he saw him, he fell at his feet,

Mar|5|23| And besought him greatly, saying, My little daughter lieth at the point of death: I pray thee, come and lay thy hands on her, that she may be healed; and she shall live.

Mar|5|24| And Jesus went with him; and much people followed him, and thronged him.

Mar|5|25| And a certain woman, which had an issue of blood twelve years,

Mar|5|26| And had suffered many things of many physicians, and had spent all that she had, and was nothing bettered, but rather grew worse,

Mar|5|27| When she had heard of Jesus, came in the press behind, and touched his garment.

Mar|5|28| For she said, If I may touch but his clothes, I shall be whole.

Mar|5|29| And straightway the fountain of her blood was dried up; and she felt in her body that she was healed of that plague.

Mar|5|30| And Jesus, immediately knowing in himself that virtue had gone out of him, turned him about in the press, and said, Who touched my clothes?

Mar|5|31| And his disciples said unto him, Thou seest the multitude thronging thee, and sayest thou, Who touched me?

Mar|5|32| And he looked round about to see her that had done this thing.

Mar|5|33| But the woman fearing and trembling, knowing what was done in her, came and fell down before him, and told him all the truth.

Mar|5|34| And he said unto her, Daughter, thy faith hath made thee whole; go in peace, and be whole of thy plague.

Mar|5|35| While he yet spake, there came from the ruler of the synagogue's house certain which said, Thy daughter is dead: why troublest thou the Master any further?

Mar|5|36| As soon as Jesus heard the word that was spoken, he saith unto the ruler of the synagogue, Be not afraid, only believe.

Mar|5|37| And he suffered no man to follow him, save Peter, and James, and John the brother of James.

Mar|5|38| And he cometh to the house of the ruler of the synagogue, and seeth the tumult, and them that wept and wailed greatly.

Mar|5|39| And when he was come in, he saith unto them, Why make ye this ado, and weep? the damsel is not dead, but sleepeth.

Mar|5|40| And they laughed him to scorn. But when he had put them all out, he taketh the father and the mother of the damsel, and them that were with him, and entereth in where the damsel was lying.

Mar|5|41| And he took the damsel by the hand, and said unto her, Talitha cumi; which is, being interpreted, Damsel, I say unto thee, arise.

Mar|5|42| And straightway the damsel arose, and walked; for she was of the age of twelve years. And they were astonished with a great astonishment.

Mar|5|43| And he charged them straitly that no man should know it; and commanded that something should be given her to eat.

Mar|6|1| And he went out from thence, and came into his own country; and his disciples follow him.

Mar|6|2| And when the sabbath day was come, he began to teach in the synagogue: and many hearing him were astonished, saying, From whence hath this man these things? and what wisdom is this which is given unto him, that even such mighty works are wrought by his hands?

Mar|6|3| Is not this the carpenter, the son of Mary, the brother of James, and Joses, and of Juda, and Simon? and are not his sisters here with us? And they were offended at him.

Mar|6|4| But Jesus, said unto them, A prophet is not without honour, but in his own country, and among his own kin, and in his own house.

Mar|6|5| And he could there do no mighty work, save that he laid his hands upon a few sick folk, and healed them.

Mar|6|6| And he marvelled because of their unbelief. And he went round about the villages, teaching.

Mar|6|7| And he called unto him the twelve, and began to send them forth by two and two; and gave them power over unclean spirits;

Mar|6|8| And commanded them that they should take nothing for their journey, save a staff only; no scrip, no bread, no money in their purse:

Mar|6|9| But be shod with sandals; and not put on two coats.

Mar|6|10| And he said unto them, In what place soever ye enter into an house, there abide till ye depart from that place.

Mar|6|11| And whosoever shall not receive you, nor hear you, when ye depart thence, shake off the dust under your feet for a testimony against them. Verily I say unto you, It shall be more tolerable for Sodom and Gomorrha in the day of judgment, than for that city.

Mar|6|12| And they went out, and preached that men should repent.

Mar|6|13| And they cast out many devils, and anointed with oil many that were sick, and healed them.

Mar|6|14| And king Herod heard of him; (for his name was spread abroad:) and he said, That John the Baptist was risen from the dead, and therefore mighty works do shew forth themselves in him.

Mar|6|15| Others said, That it is Elias. And others said, That it is a prophet, or as one of the prophets.

Mar|6|16| But when Herod heard thereof, he said, It is John, whom I beheaded: he is risen from the dead.

Mar|6|17| For Herod himself had sent forth and laid hold upon John, and bound him in prison for Herodias' sake, his brother Philip's wife: for he had married her.

Mar|6|18| For John had said unto Herod, It is not lawful for thee to have thy brother's wife.

Mar|6|19| Therefore Herodias had a quarrel against him, and would have killed him; but she could not:

Mar|6|20| For Herod feared John, knowing that he was a just man and an holy, and observed him; and when he heard him, he did many things, and heard him gladly.

Mar|6|21| And when a convenient day was come, that Herod on his birthday made a supper to his lords, high captains, and chief estates of Galilee;

Mar|6|22| And when the daughter of the said Herodias came in, and danced, and pleased Herod and them that sat with him, the king said unto the damsel, Ask of me whatsoever thou wilt, and I will give it thee.

Mar|6|23| And he sware unto her, Whatsoever thou shalt ask of me, I will give it thee, unto the half of my kingdom.

Mar|6|24| And she went forth, and said unto her mother, What shall I ask? And she said, The head of John the Baptist.

Mar|6|25| And she came in straightway with haste unto the king, and asked, saying, I will that thou give me by and by in a charger the head of John the Baptist.

Mar|6|26| And the king was exceeding sorry; yet for his oath's sake, and for their sakes which sat with him, he would not reject her.

Mar|6|27| And immediately the king sent an executioner, and commanded his head to be brought: and he went and beheaded him in the prison,

Mar|6|28| And brought his head in a charger, and gave it to the damsel: and the damsel gave it to her mother.

Mar|6|29| And when his disciples heard of it, they came and took up his corpse, and laid it in a tomb.

Mar|6|30| And the apostles gathered themselves together unto Jesus, and told him all things, both what they had done, and what they had taught.

Mar|6|31| And he said unto them, Come ye yourselves apart into a desert place, and rest a while: for there were many coming and going, and they had no leisure so much as to eat.

Mar|6|32| And they departed into a desert place by ship privately.

Mar|6|33| And the people saw them departing, and many knew him, and ran afoot thither out of all cities, and outwent them, and came together unto him.

Mar|6|34| And Jesus, when he came out, saw much people, and was moved with compassion toward them, because they were as sheep not having a shepherd: and he began to teach them many things.

Mar|6|35| And when the day was now far spent, his disciples came unto him, and said, This is a desert place, and now the time is far passed:

Mar|6|36| Send them away, that they may go into the country round about, and into the villages, and buy themselves bread: for they have nothing to eat.

Mar|6|37| He answered and said unto them, Give ye them to eat. And they say unto him, Shall we go and buy two hundred pennyworth of bread, and give them to eat?

Mar|6|38| He saith unto them, How many loaves have ye? go and see. And when they knew, they say, Five, and two fishes.

Mar|6|39| And he commanded them to make all sit down by companies upon the green grass.

Mar|6|40| And they sat down in ranks, by hundreds, and by fifties.

Mar|6|41| And when he had taken the five loaves and the two fishes, he looked up to heaven, and blessed, and brake the loaves, and gave them to his disciples to set before them; and the two fishes divided he among them all.

Mar|6|42| And they did all eat, and were filled.

Mar|6|43| And they took up twelve baskets full of the fragments, and of the fishes.

Mar|6|44| And they that did eat of the loaves were about five thousand men.

Mar|6|45| And straightway he constrained his disciples to get into the ship, and to go to the other side before unto Bethsaida, while he sent away the people.

Mar|6|46| And when he had sent them away, he departed into a mountain to pray.

Mar|6|47| And when even was come, the ship was in the midst of the sea, and he alone on the land.

Mar|6|48| And he saw them toiling in rowing; for the wind was contrary unto them: and about the fourth watch of the night he cometh unto them, walking upon the sea, and would have passed by them.

Mar|6|49| But when they saw him walking upon the sea, they supposed it had been a spirit, and cried out:

Mar|6|50| For they all saw him, and were troubled. And immediately he talked with them, and saith unto them, Be of good cheer: it is I; be not afraid.

Mar|6|51| And he went up unto them into the ship; and the wind ceased: and they were sore amazed in themselves beyond measure, and wondered.

Mar|6|52| For they considered not the miracle of the loaves: for their heart was hardened.

Mar|6|53| And when they had passed over, they came into the land of Gennesaret, and drew to the shore.

Mar|6|54| And when they were come out of the ship, straightway they knew him,

Mar|6|55| And ran through that whole region round about, and began to carry about in beds those that were sick, where they heard he was.

Mar|6|56| And whithersoever he entered, into villages, or cities, or country, they laid the sick in the streets, and besought him that they might touch if it were but the border of his garment: and as many as touched him were made whole.

Mar|7|1| Then came together unto him the Pharisees, and certain of the scribes, which came from Jerusalem.

Mar|7|2| And when they saw some of his disciples eat bread with defiled, that is to say, with unwashen, hands, they found fault.

Mar|7|3| For the Pharisees, and all the Jews, except they wash their hands oft, eat not, holding the tradition of the elders.

Mar|7|4| And when they come from the market, except they wash, they eat not. And many other things there be, which they have received to hold, as the washing of cups, and pots, brasen vessels, and of tables.

Mar|7|5| Then the Pharisees and scribes asked him, Why walk not thy disciples according to the tradition of the elders, but eat bread with unwashen hands?

Mar|7|6| He answered and said unto them, Well hath Esaias prophesied of you hypocrites, as it is written, This people honoureth me with their lips, but their heart is far from me.

Mar|7|7| Howbeit in vain do they worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.

Mar|7|8| For laying aside the commandment of God, ye hold the tradition of men, as the washing of pots and cups: and many other such like things ye do.

Mar|7|9| And he said unto them, Full well ye reject the commandment of God, that ye may keep your own tradition.

Mar|7|10| For Moses said, Honour thy father and thy mother; and, Whoso curseth father or mother, let him die the death:

Mar|7|11| But ye say, If a man shall say to his father or mother, It is Corban, that is to say, a gift, by whatsoever thou mightest be profited by me; he shall be free.

Mar|7|12| And ye suffer him no more to do ought for his father or his mother;

Mar|7|13| Making the word of God of none effect through your tradition, which ye have delivered: and many such like things do ye.

Mar|7|14| And when he had called all the people unto him, he said unto them, Hearken unto me every one of you, and understand:

Mar|7|15| There is nothing from without a man, that entering into him can defile him: but the things which come out of him, those are they that defile the man.

Mar|7|16| If any man have ears to hear, let him hear.

Mar|7|17| And when he was entered into the house from the people, his disciples asked him concerning the parable.

Mar|7|18| And he saith unto them, Are ye so without understanding also? Do ye not perceive, that whatsoever thing from without entereth into the man, it cannot defile him;

Mar|7|19| Because it entereth not into his heart, but into the belly, and goeth out into the draught, purging all meats?

Mar|7|20| And he said, That which cometh out of the man, that defileth the man.

Mar|7|21| For from within, out of the heart of men, proceed evil thoughts, adulteries, fornications, murders,

Mar|7|22| Thefts, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, lasciviousness, an evil eye, blasphemy, pride, foolishness:

Mar|7|23| All these evil things come from within, and defile the man.

Mar|7|24| And from thence he arose, and went into the borders of Tyre and Sidon, and entered into an house, and would have no man know it: but he could not be hid.

Mar|7|25| For a certain woman, whose young daughter had an unclean spirit, heard of him, and came and fell at his feet:

Mar|7|26| The woman was a Greek, a Syrophenician by nation; and she besought him that he would cast forth the devil out of her daughter.

Mar|7|27| But Jesus said unto her, Let the children first be filled: for it is not meet to take the children's bread, and to cast it unto the dogs.

Mar|7|28| And she answered and said unto him, Yes, Lord: yet the dogs under the table eat of the children's crumbs.

Mar|7|29| And he said unto her, For this saying go thy way; the devil is gone out of thy daughter.

Mar|7|30| And when she was come to her house, she found the devil gone out, and her daughter laid upon the bed.

Mar|7|31| And again, departing from the coasts of Tyre and Sidon, he came unto the sea of Galilee, through the midst of the coasts of Decapolis.

Mar|7|32| And they bring unto him one that was deaf, and had an impediment in his speech; and they beseech him to put his hand upon him.

Mar|7|33| And he took him aside from the multitude, and put his fingers into his ears, and he spit, and touched his tongue;

Mar|7|34| And looking up to heaven, he sighed, and saith unto him, Ephphatha, that is, Be opened.

Mar|7|35| And straightway his ears were opened, and the string of his tongue was loosed, and he spake plain.

Mar|7|36| And he charged them that they should tell no man: but the more he charged them, so much the more a great deal they published it;

Mar|7|37| And were beyond measure astonished, saying, He hath done all things well: he maketh both the deaf to hear, and the dumb to speak.

Mar|8|1| In those days the multitude being very great, and having nothing to eat, Jesus called his disciples unto him, and saith unto them,

Mar|8|2| I have compassion on the multitude, because they have now been with me three days, and have nothing to eat:

Mar|8|3| And if I send them away fasting to their own houses, they will faint by the way: for divers of them came from far.

Mar|8|4| And his disciples answered him, From whence can a man satisfy these men with bread here in the wilderness?

Mar|8|5| And he asked them, How many loaves have ye? And they said, Seven.

Mar|8|6| And he commanded the people to sit down on the ground: and he took the seven loaves, and gave thanks, and brake, and gave to his disciples to set before them; and they did set them before the people.

Mar|8|7| And they had a few small fishes: and he blessed, and commanded to set them also before them.

Mar|8|8| So they did eat, and were filled: and they took up of the broken meat that was left seven baskets.

Mar|8|9| And they that had eaten were about four thousand: and he sent them away.

Mar|8|10| And straightway he entered into a ship with his disciples, and came into the parts of Dalmanutha.

Mar|8|11| And the Pharisees came forth, and began to question with him, seeking of him a sign from heaven, tempting him.

Mar|8|12| And he sighed deeply in his spirit, and saith, Why doth this generation seek after a sign? verily I say unto you, There shall no sign be given unto this generation.

Mar|8|13| And he left them, and entering into the ship again departed to the other side.

Mar|8|14| Now the disciples had forgotten to take bread, neither had they in the ship with them more than one loaf.

Mar|8|15| And he charged them, saying, Take heed, beware of the leaven of the Pharisees, and of the leaven of Herod.

Mar|8|16| And they reasoned among themselves, saying, It is because we have no bread.

Mar|8|17| And when Jesus knew it, he saith unto them, Why reason ye, because ye have no bread? perceive ye not yet, neither understand? have ye your heart yet hardened?

Mar|8|18| Having eyes, see ye not? and having ears, hear ye not? and do ye not remember?

Mar|8|19| When I brake the five loaves among five thousand, how many baskets full of fragments took ye up? They say unto him, Twelve.

Mar|8|20| And when the seven among four thousand, how many baskets full of fragments took ye up? And they said, Seven.

Mar|8|21| And he said unto them, How is it that ye do not understand?

Mar|8|22| And he cometh to Bethsaida; and they bring a blind man unto him, and besought him to touch him.

Mar|8|23| And he took the blind man by the hand, and led him out of the town; and when he had spit on his eyes, and put his hands upon him, he asked him if he saw ought.

Mar|8|24| And he looked up, and said, I see men as trees, walking.

Mar|8|25| After that he put his hands again upon his eyes, and made him look up: and he was restored, and saw every man clearly.

Mar|8|26| And he sent him away to his house, saying, Neither go into the town, nor tell it to any in the town.

Mar|8|27| And Jesus went out, and his disciples, into the towns of Caesarea Philippi: and by the way he asked his disciples, saying unto them, Whom do men say that I am?

Mar|8|28| And they answered, John the Baptist; but some say, Elias; and others, One of the prophets.

Mar|8|29| And he saith unto them, But whom say ye that I am? And Peter answereth and saith unto him, Thou art the Christ.

Mar|8|30| And he charged them that they should tell no man of him.

Mar|8|31| And he began to teach them, that the Son of man must suffer many things, and be rejected of the elders, and of the chief priests, and scribes, and be killed, and after three days rise again.

Mar|8|32| And he spake that saying openly. And Peter took him, and began to rebuke him.

Mar|8|33| But when he had turned about and looked on his disciples, he rebuked Peter, saying, Get thee behind me, Satan: for thou savourest not the things that be of God, but the things that be of men.

Mar|8|34| And when he had called the people unto him with his disciples also, he said unto them, Whosoever will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me.

Mar|8|35| For whosoever will save his life shall lose it; but whosoever shall lose his life for my sake and the gospel's, the same shall save it.

Mar|8|36| For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?

Mar|8|37| Or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?

Mar|8|38| Whosoever therefore shall be ashamed of me and of my words in this adulterous and sinful generation; of him also shall the Son of man be ashamed, when he cometh in the glory of his Father with the holy angels.

Mar|9|1| And he said unto them, Verily I say unto you, That there be some of them that stand here, which shall not taste of death, till they have seen the kingdom of God come with power.

Mar|9|2| And after six days Jesus taketh with him Peter, and James, and John, and leadeth them up into an high mountain apart by themselves: and he was transfigured before them.

Mar|9|3| And his raiment became shining, exceeding white as snow; so as no fuller on earth can white them.

Mar|9|4| And there appeared unto them Elias with Moses: and they were talking with Jesus.

Mar|9|5| And Peter answered and said to 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.

Mar|9|6| For he wist not what to say; for they were sore afraid.

Mar|9|7| And there was a cloud that overshadowed them: and a voice came out of the cloud, saying, This is my beloved Son: hear him.

Mar|9|8| And suddenly, when they had looked round about, they saw no man any more, save Jesus only with themselves.

Mar|9|9| And as they came down from the mountain, he charged them that they should tell no man what things they had seen, till the Son of man were risen from the dead.

Mar|9|10| And they kept that saying with themselves, questioning one with another what the rising from the dead should mean.

Mar|9|11| And they asked him, saying, Why say the scribes that Elias must first come?

Mar|9|12| And he answered and told them, Elias verily cometh first, and restoreth all things; and how it is written of the Son of man, that he must suffer many things, and be set at nought.

Mar|9|13| But I say unto you, That Elias is indeed come, and they have done unto him whatsoever they listed, as it is written of him.

Mar|9|14| And when he came to his disciples, he saw a great multitude about them, and the scribes questioning with them.

Mar|9|15| And straightway all the people, when they beheld him, were greatly amazed, and running to him saluted him.

Mar|9|16| And he asked the scribes, What question ye with them?

Mar|9|17| And one of the multitude answered and said, Master, I have brought unto thee my son, which hath a dumb spirit;

Mar|9|18| And wheresoever he taketh him, he teareth him: and he foameth, and gnasheth with his teeth, and pineth away: and I spake to thy disciples that they should cast him out; and they could not.

Mar|9|19| He answereth him, and saith, O faithless generation, how long shall I be with you? how long shall I suffer you? bring him unto me.

Mar|9|20| And they brought him unto him: and when he saw him, straightway the spirit tare him; and he fell on the ground, and wallowed foaming.

Mar|9|21| And he asked his father, How long is it ago since this came unto him?And he said, Of a child.

Mar|9|22| And ofttimes it hath cast him into the fire, and into the waters, to destroy him: but if thou canst do any thing, have compassion on us, and help us.

Mar|9|23| Jesus said unto him, If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth.

Mar|9|24| And straightway the father of the child cried out, and said with tears, Lord, I believe; help thou mine unbelief.

Mar|9|25| When Jesus saw that the people came running together, he rebuked the foul spirit, saying unto him, Thou dumb and deaf spirit, I charge thee, come out of him, and enter no more into him.

Mar|9|26| And the spirit cried, and rent him sore, and came out of him: and he was as one dead; insomuch that many said, He is dead.

Mar|9|27| But Jesus took him by the hand, and lifted him up; and he arose.

Mar|9|28| And when he was come into the house, his disciples asked him privately, Why could not we cast him out?

Mar|9|29| And he said unto them, This kind can come forth by nothing, but by prayer and fasting.

Mar|9|30| And they departed thence, and passed through Galilee; and he would not that any man should know it.

Mar|9|31| For he taught his disciples, and said unto them, The Son of man is delivered into the hands of men, and they shall kill him; and after that he is killed, he shall rise the third day.

Mar|9|32| But they understood not that saying, and were afraid to ask him.

Mar|9|33| And he came to Capernaum: and being in the house he asked them, What was it that ye disputed among yourselves by the way?

Mar|9|34| But they held their peace: for by the way they had disputed among themselves, who should be the greatest.

Mar|9|35| And he sat down, and called the twelve, and saith unto them, If any man desire to be first, the same shall be last of all, and servant of all.

Mar|9|36| And he took a child, and set him in the midst of them: and when he had taken him in his arms, he said unto them,

Mar|9|37| Whosoever shall receive one of such children in my name, receiveth me: and whosoever shall receive me, receiveth not me, but him that sent me.

Mar|9|38| And John answered him, saying, Master, we saw one casting out devils in thy name, and he followeth not us: and we forbad him, because he followeth not us.

Mar|9|39| But Jesus said, Forbid him not: for there is no man which shall do a miracle in my name, that can lightly speak evil of me.

Mar|9|40| For he that is not against us is on our part.

Mar|9|41| For whosoever shall give you a cup of water to drink in my name, because ye belong to Christ, verily I say unto you, he shall not lose his reward.

Mar|9|42| And whosoever shall offend one of these little ones that believe in me, it is better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he were cast into the sea.

Mar|9|43| And if thy hand offend thee, cut it off: it is better for thee to enter into life maimed, than having two hands to go into hell, into the fire that never shall be quenched:

Mar|9|44| Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.

Mar|9|45| And if thy foot offend thee, cut it off: it is better for thee to enter halt into life, than having two feet to be cast into hell, into the fire that never shall be quenched:

Mar|9|46| Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.

Mar|9|47| And if thine eye offend thee, pluck it out: it is better for thee to enter into the kingdom of God with one eye, than having two eyes to be cast into hell fire:

Mar|9|48| Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.

Mar|9|49| For every one shall be salted with fire, and every sacrifice shall be salted with salt.

Mar|9|50| Salt is good: but if the salt have lost his saltness, wherewith will ye season it? Have salt in yourselves, and have peace one with another.

Mar|10|1| And he arose from thence, and cometh into the coasts of Judaea by the farther side of Jordan: and the people resort unto him again; and, as he was wont, he taught them again.

Mar|10|2| And the Pharisees came to him, and asked him, Is it lawful for a man to put away his wife? tempting him.

Mar|10|3| And he answered and said unto them, What did Moses command you?

Mar|10|4| And they said, Moses suffered to write a bill of divorcement, and to put her away.

Mar|10|5| And Jesus answered and said unto them, For the hardness of your heart he wrote you this precept.

Mar|10|6| But from the beginning of the creation God made them male and female.

Mar|10|7| For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and cleave to his wife;

Mar|10|8| And they twain shall be one flesh: so then they are no more twain, but one flesh.

Mar|10|9| What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder.

Mar|10|10| And in the house his disciples asked him again of the same matter.

Mar|10|11| And he saith unto them, Whosoever shall put away his wife, and marry another, committeth adultery against her.

Mar|10|12| And if a woman shall put away her husband, and be married to another, she committeth adultery.

Mar|10|13| And they brought young children to him, that he should touch them: and his disciples rebuked those that brought them.

Mar|10|14| But when Jesus saw it, he was much displeased, and said unto them, Suffer the little children to come unto me, and forbid them not: for of such is the kingdom of God.

Mar|10|15| Verily I say unto you, Whosoever shall not receive the kingdom of God as a little child, he shall not enter therein.

Mar|10|16| And he took them up in his arms, put his hands upon them, and blessed them.

Mar|10|17| And when he was gone forth into the way, there came one running, and kneeled to him, and asked him, Good Master, what shall I do that I may inherit eternal life?

Mar|10|18| And Jesus said unto him, Why callest thou me good? there is none good but one, that is, God.

Mar|10|19| Thou knowest the commandments, Do not commit adultery, Do not kill, Do not steal, Do not bear false witness, Defraud not, Honour thy father and mother.

Mar|10|20| And he answered and said unto him, Master, all these have I observed from my youth.

Mar|10|21| Then Jesus beholding him loved him, and said unto him, One thing thou lackest: go thy way, sell whatsoever thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come, take up the cross, and follow me.

Mar|10|22| And he was sad at that saying, and went away grieved: for he had great possessions.

Mar|10|23| And Jesus looked round about, and saith unto his disciples, How hardly shall they that have riches enter into the kingdom of God!

Mar|10|24| And the disciples were astonished at his words. But Jesus answereth again, and saith unto them, Children, how hard is it for them that trust in riches to enter into the kingdom of God!

Mar|10|25| It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God.

Mar|10|26| And they were astonished out of measure, saying among themselves, Who then can be saved?

Mar|10|27| And Jesus looking upon them saith, With men it is impossible, but not with God: for with God all things are possible.

Mar|10|28| Then Peter began to say unto him, Lo, we have left all, and have followed thee.

Mar|10|29| And Jesus answered and said, Verily I say unto you, There is no man that hath left house, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for my sake, and the gospel's,

Mar|10|30| But he shall receive an hundredfold now in this time, houses, and brethren, and sisters, and mothers, and children, and lands, with persecutions; and in the world to come eternal life.

Mar|10|31| But many that are first shall be last; and the last first.

Mar|10|32| And they were in the way going up to Jerusalem; and Jesus went before them: and they were amazed; and as they followed, they were afraid. And he took again the twelve, and began to tell them what things should happen unto him,

Mar|10|33| Saying, Behold, we go up to Jerusalem; and the Son of man shall be delivered unto the chief priests, and unto the scribes; and they shall condemn him to death, and shall deliver him to the Gentiles:

Mar|10|34| And they shall mock him, and shall scourge him, and shall spit upon him, and shall kill him: and the third day he shall rise again.

Mar|10|35| And James and John, the sons of Zebedee, come unto him, saying, Master, we would that thou shouldest do for us whatsoever we shall desire.

Mar|10|36| And he said unto them, What would ye that I should do for you?

Mar|10|37| They said unto him, Grant unto us that we may sit, one on thy right hand, and the other on thy left hand, in thy glory.

Mar|10|38| But Jesus said unto them, Ye know not what ye ask: can ye drink of the cup that I drink of? and be baptized with the baptism that I am baptized with?

Mar|10|39| And they said unto him, We can. And Jesus said unto them, Ye shall indeed drink of the cup that I drink of; and with the baptism that I am baptized withal shall ye be baptized:

Mar|10|40| But to sit on my right hand and on my left hand is not mine to give; but it shall be given to them for whom it is prepared.

Mar|10|41| And when the ten heard it, they began to be much displeased with James and John.

Mar|10|42| But Jesus called them to him, and saith unto them, Ye know that they which are accounted to rule over the Gentiles exercise lordship over them; and their great ones exercise authority upon them.

Mar|10|43| But so shall it not be among you: but whosoever will be great among you, shall be your minister:

Mar|10|44| And whosoever of you will be the chiefest, shall be servant of all.

Mar|10|45| For even the Son of man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give his life a ransom for many.

Mar|10|46| And they came to Jericho: and as he went out of Jericho with his disciples and a great number of people, blind Bartimaeus, the son of Timaeus, sat by the highway side begging.

Mar|10|47| And when he heard that it was Jesus of Nazareth, he began to cry out, and say, Jesus, thou son of David, have mercy on me.

Mar|10|48| And many charged him that he should hold his peace: but he cried the more a great deal, Thou son of David, have mercy on me.

Mar|10|49| And Jesus stood still, and commanded him to be called. And they call the blind man, saying unto him, Be of good comfort, rise; he calleth thee.

Mar|10|50| And he, casting away his garment, rose, and came to Jesus.

Mar|10|51| And Jesus answered and said unto him, What wilt thou that I should do unto thee? The blind man said unto him, Lord, that I might receive my sight.

Mar|10|52| And Jesus said unto him, Go thy way; thy faith hath made thee whole. And immediately he received his sight, and followed Jesus in the way.

Mar|11|1| And when they came nigh to Jerusalem, unto Bethphage and Bethany, at the mount of Olives, he sendeth forth two of his disciples,

Mar|11|2| And saith unto them, Go your way into the village over against you: and as soon as ye be entered into it, ye shall find a colt tied, whereon never man sat; loose him, and bring him.

Mar|11|3| And if any man say unto you, Why do ye this? say ye that the Lord hath need of him; and straightway he will send him hither.

Mar|11|4| And they went their way, and found the colt tied by the door without in a place where two ways met; and they loose him.

Mar|11|5| And certain of them that stood there said unto them, What do ye, loosing the colt?

Mar|11|6| And they said unto them even as Jesus had commanded: and they let them go.

Mar|11|7| And they brought the colt to Jesus, and cast their garments on him; and he sat upon him.

Mar|11|8| And many spread their garments in the way: and others cut down branches off the trees, and strawed them in the way.

Mar|11|9| And they that went before, and they that followed, cried, saying, Hosanna; Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord:

Mar|11|10| Blessed be the kingdom of our father David, that cometh in the name of the Lord: Hosanna in the highest.

Mar|11|11| And Jesus entered into Jerusalem, and into the temple: and when he had looked round about upon all things, and now the eventide was come, he went out unto Bethany with the twelve.

Mar|11|12| And on the morrow, when they were come from Bethany, he was hungry:

Mar|11|13| And seeing a fig tree afar off having leaves, he came, if haply he might find any thing thereon: and when he came to it, he found nothing but leaves; for the time of figs was not yet.

Mar|11|14| And Jesus answered and said unto it, No man eat fruit of thee hereafter for ever. And his disciples heard it.

Mar|11|15| And they come to Jerusalem: and Jesus went into the temple, and began to cast out them that sold and bought in the temple, and overthrew the tables of the moneychangers, and the seats of them that sold doves;

Mar|11|16| And would not suffer that any man should carry any vessel through the temple.

Mar|11|17| And he taught, saying unto them, Is it not written, My house shall be called of all nations the house of prayer? but ye have made it a den of thieves.

Mar|11|18| And the scribes and chief priests heard it, and sought how they might destroy him: for they feared him, because all the people was astonished at his doctrine.

Mar|11|19| And when even was come, he went out of the city.

Mar|11|20| And in the morning, as they passed by, they saw the fig tree dried up from the roots.

Mar|11|21| And Peter calling to remembrance saith unto him, Master, behold, the fig tree which thou cursedst is withered away.

Mar|11|22| And Jesus answering saith unto them, Have faith in God.

Mar|11|23| For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith.

Mar|11|24| Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.

Mar|11|25| And when ye stand praying, forgive, if ye have ought against any: that your Father also which is in heaven may forgive you your trespasses.

Mar|11|26| But if ye do not forgive, neither will your Father which is in heaven forgive your trespasses.

Mar|11|27| And they come again to Jerusalem: and as he was walking in the temple, there come to him the chief priests, and the scribes, and the elders,

Mar|11|28| And say unto him, By what authority doest thou these things? and who gave thee this authority to do these things?

Mar|11|29| And Jesus answered and said unto them, I will also ask of you one question, and answer me, and I will tell you by what authority I do these things.

Mar|11|30| The baptism of John, was it from heaven, or of men? answer me.

Mar|11|31| And they reasoned with themselves, saying, If we shall say, From heaven; he will say, Why then did ye not believe him?

Mar|11|32| But if we shall say, Of men; they feared the people: for all men counted John, that he was a prophet indeed.

Mar|11|33| And they answered and said unto Jesus, We cannot tell. And Jesus answering saith unto them, Neither do I tell you by what authority I do these things.

Mar|12|1| And he began to speak unto them by parables. A certain man planted a vineyard, and set an hedge about it, and digged a place for the winefat, and built a tower, and let it out to husbandmen, and went into a far country.

Mar|12|2| And at the season he sent to the husbandmen a servant, that he might receive from the husbandmen of the fruit of the vineyard.

Mar|12|3| And they caught him, and beat him, and sent him away empty.

Mar|12|4| And again he sent unto them another servant; and at him they cast stones, and wounded him in the head, and sent him away shamefully handled.

Mar|12|5| And again he sent another; and him they killed, and many others; beating some, and killing some.

Mar|12|6| Having yet therefore one son, his wellbeloved, he sent him also last unto them, saying, They will reverence my son.

Mar|12|7| But those husbandmen said among themselves, This is the heir; come, let us kill him, and the inheritance shall be our's.

Mar|12|8| And they took him, and killed him, and cast him out of the vineyard.

Mar|12|9| What shall therefore the lord of the vineyard do? he will come and destroy the husbandmen, and will give the vineyard unto others.

Mar|12|10| And have ye not read this scripture; The stone which the builders rejected is become the head of the corner:

Mar|12|11| This was the Lord's doing, and it is marvellous in our eyes?

Mar|12|12| And they sought to lay hold on him, but feared the people: for they knew that he had spoken the parable against them: and they left him, and went their way.

Mar|12|13| And they send unto him certain of the Pharisees and of the Herodians, to catch him in his words.

Mar|12|14| And when they were come, they say unto him, Master, we know that thou art true, and carest for no man: for thou regardest not the person of men, but teachest the way of God in truth: Is it lawful to give tribute to Caesar, or not?

Mar|12|15| Shall we give, or shall we not give? But he, knowing their hypocrisy, said unto them, Why tempt ye me? bring me a penny, that I may see it.

Mar|12|16| And they brought it. And he saith unto them, Whose is this image and superscription? And they said unto him, Caesar's.

Mar|12|17| And Jesus answering said unto them, Render to Caesar the things that are Caesar's, and to God the things that are God's. And they marvelled at him.

Mar|12|18| Then come unto him the Sadducees, which say there is no resurrection; and they asked him, saying,

Mar|12|19| Master, Moses wrote unto us, If a man's brother die, and leave his wife behind him, and leave no children, that his brother should take his wife, and raise up seed unto his brother.

Mar|12|20| Now there were seven brethren: and the first took a wife, and dying left no seed.

Mar|12|21| And the second took her, and died, neither left he any seed: and the third likewise.

Mar|12|22| And the seven had her, and left no seed: last of all the woman died also.

Mar|12|23| In the resurrection therefore, when they shall rise, whose wife shall she be of them? for the seven had her to wife.

Mar|12|24| And Jesus answering said unto them, Do ye not therefore err, because ye know not the scriptures, neither the power of God?

Mar|12|25| For when they shall rise from the dead, they neither marry, nor are given in marriage; but are as the angels which are in heaven.

Mar|12|26| And as touching the dead, that they rise: have ye not read in the book of Moses, how in the bush God spake unto him, saying, I am the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob?

Mar|12|27| He is not the God of the dead, but the God of the living: ye therefore do greatly err.

Mar|12|28| And one of the scribes came, and having heard them reasoning together, and perceiving that he had answered them well, asked him, Which is the first commandment of all?

Mar|12|29| And Jesus answered him, The first of all the commandments is, Hear, O Israel; The Lord our God is one Lord:

Mar|12|30| And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment.

Mar|12|31| And the second is like, namely this, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. There is none other commandment greater than these.

Mar|12|32| And the scribe said unto him, Well, Master, thou hast said the truth: for there is one God; and there is none other but he:

Mar|12|33| And to love him with all the heart, and with all the understanding, and with all the soul, and with all the strength, and to love his neighbour as himself, is more than all whole burnt offerings and sacrifices.

Mar|12|34| And when Jesus saw that he answered discreetly, he said unto him, Thou art not far from the kingdom of God. And no man after that durst ask him any question.

Mar|12|35| And Jesus answered and said, while he taught in the temple, How say the scribes that Christ is the son of David?

Mar|12|36| For David himself said by the Holy Ghost, The LORD said to my Lord, Sit thou on my right hand, till I make thine enemies thy footstool.

Mar|12|37| David therefore himself calleth him Lord; and whence is he then his son? And the common people heard him gladly.

Mar|12|38| And he said unto them in his doctrine, Beware of the scribes, which love to go in long clothing, and love salutations in the marketplaces,

Mar|12|39| And the chief seats in the synagogues, and the uppermost rooms at feasts:

Mar|12|40| Which devour widows' houses, and for a pretence make long prayers: these shall receive greater damnation.

Mar|12|41| And Jesus sat over against the treasury, and beheld how the people cast money into the treasury: and many that were rich cast in much.

Mar|12|42| And there came a certain poor widow, and she threw in two mites, which make a farthing.

Mar|12|43| And he called unto him his disciples, and saith unto them, Verily I say unto you, That this poor widow hath cast more in, than all they which have cast into the treasury:

Mar|12|44| For all they did cast in of their abundance; but she of her want did cast in all that she had, even all her living.

Mar|13|1| And as he went out of the temple, one of his disciples saith unto him, Master, see what manner of stones and what buildings are here!

Mar|13|2| And Jesus answering said unto him, Seest thou these great buildings?there shall not be left one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down.

Mar|13|3| And as he sat upon the mount of Olives over against the temple, Peter and James and John and Andrew asked him privately,

Mar|13|4| Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign when all these things shall be fulfilled?

Mar|13|5| And Jesus answering them began to say, Take heed lest any man deceive you:

Mar|13|6| For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.

Mar|13|7| And when ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars, be ye not troubled: for such things must needs be; but the end shall not be yet.

Mar|13|8| For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be earthquakes in divers places, and there shall be famines and troubles: these are the beginnings of sorrows.

Mar|13|9| But take heed to yourselves: for they shall deliver you up to councils; and in the synagogues ye shall be beaten: and ye shall be brought before rulers and kings for my sake, for a testimony against them.

Mar|13|10| And the gospel must first be published among all nations.

Mar|13|11| But when they shall lead you, and deliver you up, take no thought beforehand what ye shall speak, neither do ye premeditate: but whatsoever shall be given you in that hour, that speak ye: for it is not ye that speak, but the Holy Ghost.

Mar|13|12| Now the brother shall betray the brother to death, and the father the son; and children shall rise up against their parents, and shall cause them to be put to death.

Mar|13|13| And ye shall be hated of all men for my name's sake: but he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.

Mar|13|14| But when ye shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing where it ought not, (let him that readeth understand,) then let them that be in Judaea flee to the mountains:

Mar|13|15| And let him that is on the housetop not go down into the house, neither enter therein, to take any thing out of his house:

Mar|13|16| And let him that is in the field not turn back again for to take up his garment.

Mar|13|17| But woe to them that are with child, and to them that give suck in those days!

Mar|13|18| And pray ye that your flight be not in the winter.

Mar|13|19| For in those days shall be affliction, such as was not from the beginning of the creation which God created unto this time, neither shall be.

Mar|13|20| And except that the Lord had shortened those days, no flesh should be saved: but for the elect's sake, whom he hath chosen, he hath shortened the days.

Mar|13|21| And then if any man shall say to you, Lo, here is Christ; or, lo, he is there; believe him not:

Mar|13|22| For false Christs and false prophets shall rise, and shall shew signs and wonders, to seduce, if it were possible, even the elect.

Mar|13|23| But take ye heed: behold, I have foretold you all things.

Mar|13|24| But in those days, after that tribulation, the sun shall be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light,

Mar|13|25| And the stars of heaven shall fall, and the powers that are in heaven shall be shaken.

Mar|13|26| And then shall they see the Son of man coming in the clouds with great power and glory.

Mar|13|27| And then shall he send his angels, and shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from the uttermost part of the earth to the uttermost part of heaven.

Mar|13|28| Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When her branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is near:

Mar|13|29| So ye in like manner, when ye shall see these things come to pass, know that it is nigh, even at the doors.

Mar|13|30| Verily I say unto you, that this generation shall not pass, till all these things be done.

Mar|13|31| Heaven and earth shall pass away: but my words shall not pass away.

Mar|13|32| But of that day and that hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels which are in heaven, neither the Son, but the Father.

Mar|13|33| Take ye heed, watch and pray: for ye know not when the time is.

Mar|13|34| For the Son of Man is as a man taking a far journey, who left his house, and gave authority to his servants, and to every man his work, and commanded the porter to watch.

Mar|13|35| Watch ye therefore: for ye know not when the master of the house cometh, at even, or at midnight, or at the cockcrowing, or in the morning:

Mar|13|36| Lest coming suddenly he find you sleeping.

Mar|13|37| And what I say unto you I say unto all, Watch.

Mar|14|1| After two days was the feast of the passover, and of unleavened bread: and the chief priests and the scribes sought how they might take him by craft, and put him to death.

Mar|14|2| But they said, Not on the feast day, lest there be an uproar of the people.

Mar|14|3| And being in Bethany in the house of Simon the leper, as he sat at meat, there came a woman having an alabaster box of ointment of spikenard very precious; and she brake the box, and poured it on his head.

Mar|14|4| And there were some that had indignation within themselves, and said, Why was this waste of the ointment made?

Mar|14|5| For it might have been sold for more than three hundred pence, and have been given to the poor. And they murmured against her.

Mar|14|6| And Jesus said, Let her alone; why trouble ye her? she hath wrought a good work on me.

Mar|14|7| For ye have the poor with you always, and whensoever ye will ye may do them good: but me ye have not always.

Mar|14|8| She hath done what she could: she is come aforehand to anoint my body to the burying.

Mar|14|9| Verily I say unto you, Wheresoever this gospel shall be preached throughout the whole world, this also that she hath done shall be spoken of for a memorial of her.

Mar|14|10| And Judas Iscariot, one of the twelve, went unto the chief priests, to betray him unto them.

Mar|14|11| And when they heard it, they were glad, and promised to give him money. And he sought how he might conveniently betray him.

Mar|14|12| And the first day of unleavened bread, when they killed the passover, his disciples said unto him, Where wilt thou that we go and prepare that thou mayest eat the passover?

Mar|14|13| And he sendeth forth two of his disciples, and saith unto them, Go ye into the city, and there shall meet you a man bearing a pitcher of water: follow him.

Mar|14|14| And wheresoever he shall go in, say ye to the goodman of the house, The Master saith, Where is the guestchamber, where I shall eat the passover with my disciples?

Mar|14|15| And he will shew you a large upper room furnished and prepared: there make ready for us.

Mar|14|16| And his disciples went forth, and came into the city, and found as he had said unto them: and they made ready the passover.

Mar|14|17| And in the evening he cometh with the twelve.

Mar|14|18| And as they sat and did eat, Jesus said, Verily I say unto you, One of you which eateth with me shall betray me.

Mar|14|19| And they began to be sorrowful, and to say unto him one by one, Is it I? and another said, Is it I?

Mar|14|20| And he answered and said unto them, It is one of the twelve, that dippeth with me in the dish.

Mar|14|21| The Son of man indeed goeth, as it is written of him: but woe to that man by whom the Son of man is betrayed! good were it for that man if he had never been born.

Mar|14|22| And as they did eat, Jesus took bread, and blessed, and brake it, and gave to them, and said, Take, eat: this is my body.

Mar|14|23| And he took the cup, and when he had given thanks, he gave it to them: and they all drank of it.

Mar|14|24| And he said unto them, This is my blood of the new testament, which is shed for many.

Mar|14|25| Verily I say unto you, I will drink no more of the fruit of the vine, until that day that I drink it new in the kingdom of God.

Mar|14|26| And when they had sung an hymn, they went out into the mount of Olives.

Mar|14|27| And Jesus saith unto them, All ye shall be offended because of me this night: for it is written, I will smite the shepherd, and the sheep shall be scattered.

Mar|14|28| But after that I am risen, I will go before you into Galilee.

Mar|14|29| But Peter said unto him, Although all shall be offended, yet will not I.

Mar|14|30| And Jesus saith unto him, Verily I say unto thee, That this day, even in this night, before the cock crow twice, thou shalt deny me thrice.

Mar|14|31| But he spake the more vehemently, If I should die with thee, I will not deny thee in any wise. Likewise also said they all.

Mar|14|32| And they came to a place which was named Gethsemane: and he saith to his disciples, Sit ye here, while I shall pray.

Mar|14|33| And he taketh with him Peter and James and John, and began to be sore amazed, and to be very heavy;

Mar|14|34| And saith unto them, My soul is exceeding sorrowful unto death: tarry ye here, and watch.

Mar|14|35| And he went forward a little, and fell on the ground, and prayed that, if it were possible, the hour might pass from him.

Mar|14|36| And he said, Abba, Father, all things are possible unto thee; take away this cup from me: nevertheless not what I will, but what thou wilt.

Mar|14|37| And he cometh, and findeth them sleeping, and saith unto Peter, Simon, sleepest thou? couldest not thou watch one hour?

Mar|14|38| Watch ye and pray, lest ye enter into temptation. The spirit truly is ready, but the flesh is weak.

Mar|14|39| And again he went away, and prayed, and spake the same words.

Mar|14|40| And when he returned, he found them asleep again, (for their eyes were heavy,) neither wist they what to answer him.

Mar|14|41| And he cometh the third time, and saith unto them, Sleep on now, and take your rest: it is enough, the hour is come; behold, the Son of man is betrayed into the hands of sinners.

Mar|14|42| Rise up, let us go; lo, he that betrayeth me is at hand.

Mar|14|43| And immediately, while he yet spake, cometh Judas, one of the twelve, and with him a great multitude with swords and staves, from the chief priests and the scribes and the elders.

Mar|14|44| And he that betrayed him had given them a token, saying, Whomsoever I shall kiss, that same is he; take him, and lead him away safely.

Mar|14|45| And as soon as he was come, he goeth straightway to him, and saith, Master, master; and kissed him.

Mar|14|46| And they laid their hands on him, and took him.

Mar|14|47| And one of them that stood by drew a sword, and smote a servant of the high priest, and cut off his ear.

Mar|14|48| And Jesus answered and said unto them, Are ye come out, as against a thief, with swords and with staves to take me?

Mar|14|49| I was daily with you in the temple teaching, and ye took me not: but the scriptures must be fulfilled.

Mar|14|50| And they all forsook him, and fled.

Mar|14|51| And there followed him a certain young man, having a linen cloth cast about his naked body; and the young men laid hold on him:

Mar|14|52| And he left the linen cloth, and fled from them naked.

Mar|14|53| And they led Jesus away to the high priest: and with him were assembled all the chief priests and the elders and the scribes.

Mar|14|54| And Peter followed him afar off, even into the palace of the high priest: and he sat with the servants, and warmed himself at the fire.

Mar|14|55| And the chief priests and all the council sought for witness against Jesus to put him to death; and found none.

Mar|14|56| For many bare false witness against him, but their witness agreed not together.

Mar|14|57| And there arose certain, and bare false witness against him, saying,

Mar|14|58| We heard him say, I will destroy this temple that is made with hands, and within three days I will build another made without hands.

Mar|14|59| But neither so did their witness agree together.

Mar|14|60| And the high priest stood up in the midst, and asked Jesus, saying, Answerest thou nothing? what is it which these witness against thee?

Mar|14|61| But he held his peace, and answered nothing. Again the high priest asked him, and said unto him, Art thou the Christ, the Son of the Blessed?

Mar|14|62| And Jesus said, I am: and ye shall see the Son of man sitting on the right hand of power, and coming in the clouds of heaven.

Mar|14|63| Then the high priest rent his clothes, and saith, What need we any further witnesses?

Mar|14|64| Ye have heard the blasphemy: what think ye? And they all condemned him to be guilty of death.

Mar|14|65| And some began to spit on him, and to cover his face, and to buffet him, and to say unto him, Prophesy: and the servants did strike him with the palms of their hands.

Mar|14|66| And as Peter was beneath in the palace, there cometh one of the maids of the high priest:

Mar|14|67| And when she saw Peter warming himself, she looked upon him, and said, And thou also wast with Jesus of Nazareth.

Mar|14|68| But he denied, saying, I know not, neither understand I what thou sayest. And he went out into the porch; and the cock crew.

Mar|14|69| And a maid saw him again, and began to say to them that stood by, This is one of them.

Mar|14|70| And he denied it again. And a little after, they that stood by said again to Peter, Surely thou art one of them: for thou art a Galilaean, and thy speech agreeth thereto.

Mar|14|71| But he began to curse and to swear, saying, I know not this man of whom ye speak.

Mar|14|72| And the second time the cock crew. And Peter called to mind the word that Jesus said unto him, Before the cock crow twice, thou shalt deny me thrice. And when he thought thereon, he wept.

Mar|15|1| And straightway in the morning the chief priests held a consultation with the elders and scribes and the whole council, and bound Jesus, and carried him away, and delivered him to Pilate.

Mar|15|2| And Pilate asked him, Art thou the King of the Jews? And he answering said unto them, Thou sayest it.

Mar|15|3| And the chief priests accused him of many things: but he answered nothing.

Mar|15|4| And Pilate asked him again, saying, Answerest thou nothing? behold how many things they witness against thee.

Mar|15|5| But Jesus yet answered nothing; so that Pilate marvelled.

Mar|15|6| Now at that feast he released unto them one prisoner, whomsoever they desired.

Mar|15|7| And there was one named Barabbas, which lay bound with them that had made insurrection with him, who had committed murder in the insurrection.

Mar|15|8| And the multitude crying aloud began to desire him to do as he had ever done unto them.

Mar|15|9| But Pilate answered them, saying, Will ye that I release unto you the King of the Jews?

Mar|15|10| For he knew that the chief priests had delivered him for envy.

Mar|15|11| But the chief priests moved the people, that he should rather release Barabbas unto them.

Mar|15|12| And Pilate answered and said again unto them, What will ye then that I shall do unto him whom ye call the King of the Jews?

Mar|15|13| And they cried out again, Crucify him.

Mar|15|14| Then Pilate said unto them, Why, what evil hath he done? And they cried out the more exceedingly, Crucify him.

Mar|15|15| And so Pilate, willing to content the people, released Barabbas unto them, and delivered Jesus, when he had scourged him, to be crucified.

Mar|15|16| And the soldiers led him away into the hall, called Praetorium; and they call together the whole band.

Mar|15|17| And they clothed him with purple, and platted a crown of thorns, and put it about his head,

Mar|15|18| And began to salute him, Hail, King of the Jews!

Mar|15|19| And they smote him on the head with a reed, and did spit upon him, and bowing their knees worshipped him.

Mar|15|20| And when they had mocked him, they took off the purple from him, and put his own clothes on him, and led him out to crucify him.

Mar|15|21| And they compel one Simon a Cyrenian, who passed by, coming out of the country, the father of Alexander and Rufus, to bear his cross.

Mar|15|22| And they bring him unto the place Golgotha, which is, being interpreted, The place of a skull.

Mar|15|23| And they gave him to drink wine mingled with myrrh: but he received it not.

Mar|15|24| And when they had crucified him, they parted his garments, casting lots upon them, what every man should take.

Mar|15|25| And it was the third hour, and they crucified him.

Mar|15|26| And the superscription of his accusation was written over, THE KING OF THE JEWS.

Mar|15|27| And with him they crucify two thieves; the one on his right hand, and the other on his left.

Mar|15|28| And the scripture was fulfilled, which saith, And he was numbered with the transgressors.

Mar|15|29| And they that passed by railed on him, wagging their heads, and saying, Ah, thou that destroyest the temple, and buildest it in three days,

Mar|15|30| Save thyself, and come down from the cross.

Mar|15|31| Likewise also the chief priests mocking said among themselves with the scribes, He saved others; himself he cannot save.

Mar|15|32| Let Christ the King of Israel descend now from the cross, that we may see and believe. And they that were crucified with him reviled him.

Mar|15|33| And when the sixth hour was come, there was darkness over the whole land until the ninth hour.

Mar|15|34| And at the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying, Eloi, Eloi, lama sabachthani? which is, being interpreted, My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?

Mar|15|35| And some of them that stood by, when they heard it, said, Behold, he calleth Elias.

Mar|15|36| And one ran and filled a spunge full of vinegar, and put it on a reed, and gave him to drink, saying, Let alone; let us see whether Elias will come to take him down.

Mar|15|37| And Jesus cried with a loud voice, and gave up the ghost.

Mar|15|38| And the veil of the temple was rent in twain from the top to the bottom.

Mar|15|39| And when the centurion, which stood over against him, saw that he so cried out, and gave up the ghost, he said, Truly this man was the Son of God.

Mar|15|40| There were also women looking on afar off: among whom was Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of James the less and of Joses, and Salome;

Mar|15|41| (Who also, when he was in Galilee, followed him, and ministered unto him;) and many other women which came up with him unto Jerusalem.

Mar|15|42| And now when the even was come, because it was the preparation, that is, the day before the sabbath,

Mar|15|43| Joseph of Arimathaea, an honourable counsellor, which also waited for the kingdom of God, came, and went in boldly unto Pilate, and craved the body of Jesus.

Mar|15|44| And Pilate marvelled if he were already dead: and calling unto him the centurion, he asked him whether he had been any while dead.

Mar|15|45| And when he knew it of the centurion, he gave the body to Joseph.

Mar|15|46| And he bought fine linen, and took him down, and wrapped him in the linen, and laid him in a sepulchre which was hewn out of a rock, and rolled a stone unto the door of the sepulchre.

Mar|15|47| And Mary Magdalene and Mary the mother of Joses beheld where he was laid.

Mar|16|1| And when the sabbath was past, Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of James, and Salome, had bought sweet spices, that they might come and anoint him.

Mar|16|2| And very early in the morning the first day of the week, they came unto the sepulchre at the rising of the sun.

Mar|16|3| And they said among themselves, Who shall roll us away the stone from the door of the sepulchre?

Mar|16|4| And when they looked, they saw that the stone was rolled away: for it was very great.

Mar|16|5| And entering into the sepulchre, they saw a young man sitting on the right side, clothed in a long white garment; and they were affrighted.

Mar|16|6| And he saith unto them, Be not affrighted: Ye seek Jesus of Nazareth, which was crucified: he is risen; he is not here: behold the place where they laid him.

Mar|16|7| But go your way, tell his disciples and Peter that he goeth before you into Galilee: there shall ye see him, as he said unto you.

Mar|16|8| And they went out quickly, and fled from the sepulchre; for they trembled and were amazed: neither said they any thing to any man; for they were afraid.

Mar|16|9| Now when Jesus was risen early the first day of the week, he appeared first to Mary Magdalene, out of whom he had cast seven devils.

Mar|16|10| And she went and told them that had been with him, as they mourned and wept.

Mar|16|11| And they, when they had heard that he was alive, and had been seen of her, believed not.

Mar|16|12| After that he appeared in another form unto two of them, as they walked, and went into the country.

Mar|16|13| And they went and told it unto the residue: neither believed they them.

Mar|16|14| Afterward he appeared unto the eleven as they sat at meat, and upbraided them with their unbelief and hardness of heart, because they believed not them which had seen him after he was risen.

Mar|16|15| And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.

Mar|16|16| He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned.

Mar|16|17| And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues;

Mar|16|18| They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.

Mar|16|19| So then after the Lord had spoken unto them, he was received up into heaven, and sat on the right hand of God.

Mar|16|20| And they went forth, and preached every where, the Lord working with them, and confirming the word with signs following. Amen.

Luk|1|1| Forasmuch as many have taken in hand to set forth in order a declaration of those things which are most surely believed among us,

Luk|1|2| Even as they delivered them unto us, which from the beginning were eyewitnesses, and ministers of the word;

Luk|1|3| It seemed good to me also, having had perfect understanding of all things from the very first, to write unto thee in order, most excellent Theophilus,

Luk|1|4| That thou mightest know the certainty of those things, wherein thou hast been instructed.

Luk|1|5| THERE was in the days of Herod, the king of Judaea, a certain priest named Zacharias, of the course of Abia: and his wife was of the daughters of Aaron, and her name was Elisabeth.

Luk|1|6| And they were both righteous before God, walking in all the commandments and ordinances of the Lord blameless.

Luk|1|7| And they had no child, because that Elisabeth was barren, and they both were now well stricken in years.

Luk|1|8| And it came to pass, that while he executed the priest's office before God in the order of his course,

Luk|1|9| According to the custom of the priest's office, his lot was to burn incense when he went into the temple of the Lord.

Luk|1|10| And the whole multitude of the people were praying without at the time of incense.

Luk|1|11| And there appeared unto him an angel of the Lord standing on the right side of the altar of incense.

Luk|1|12| And when Zacharias saw him, he was troubled, and fear fell upon him.

Luk|1|13| But the angel said unto him, Fear not, Zacharias: for thy prayer is heard; and thy wife Elisabeth shall bear thee a son, and thou shalt call his name John.

Luk|1|14| And thou shalt have joy and gladness; and many shall rejoice at his birth.

Luk|1|15| For he shall be great in the sight of the Lord, and shall drink neither wine nor strong drink; and he shall be filled with the Holy Ghost, even from his mother's womb.

Luk|1|16| And many of the children of Israel shall he turn to the Lord their God.

Luk|1|17| And he shall go before him in the spirit and power of Elias, to turn the hearts of the fathers to the children, and the disobedient to the wisdom of the just; to make ready a people prepared for the Lord.

Luk|1|18| And Zacharias said unto the angel, Whereby shall I know this? for I am an old man, and my wife well stricken in years.

Luk|1|19| And the angel answering said unto him, I am Gabriel, that stand in the presence of God; and am sent to speak unto thee, and to shew thee these glad tidings.

Luk|1|20| And, behold, thou shalt be dumb, and not able to speak, until the day that these things shall be performed, because thou believest not my words, which shall be fulfilled in their season.

Luk|1|21| And the people waited for Zacharias, and marvelled that he tarried so long in the temple.

Luk|1|22| And when he came out, he could not speak unto them: and they perceived that he had seen a vision in the temple: for he beckoned unto them, and remained speechless.

Luk|1|23| And it came to pass, that, as soon as the days of his ministration were accomplished, he departed to his own house.

Luk|1|24| And after those days his wife Elisabeth conceived, and hid herself five months, saying,

Luk|1|25| Thus hath the Lord dealt with me in the days wherein he looked on me, to take away my reproach among men.

Luk|1|26| And in the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent from God unto a city of Galilee, named Nazareth,

Luk|1|27| To a virgin espoused to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David; and the virgin's name was Mary.

Luk|1|28| And the angel came in unto her, and said, Hail, thou that art highly favoured, the Lord is with thee: blessed art thou among women.

Luk|1|29| And when she saw him, she was troubled at his saying, and cast in her mind what manner of salutation this should be.

Luk|1|30| And the angel said unto her, Fear not, Mary: for thou hast found favour with God.

Luk|1|31| And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call his name JESUS.

Luk|1|32| He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the Highest: and the Lord God shall give unto him the throne of his father David:

Luk|1|33| And he shall reign over the house of Jacob for ever; and of his kingdom there shall be no end.

Luk|1|34| Then said Mary unto the angel, How shall this be, seeing I know not a man?

Luk|1|35| And the angel answered and said unto her, The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee: therefore also that holy thing which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God.

Luk|1|36| And, behold, thy cousin Elisabeth, she hath also conceived a son in her old age: and this is the sixth month with her, who was called barren.

Luk|1|37| For with God nothing shall be impossible.

Luk|1|38| And Mary said, Behold the handmaid of the Lord; be it unto me according to thy word. And the angel departed from her.

Luk|1|39| And Mary arose in those days, and went into the hill country with haste, into a city of Juda;

Luk|1|40| And entered into the house of Zacharias, and saluted Elisabeth.

Luk|1|41| And it came to pass, that, when Elisabeth heard the salutation of Mary, the babe leaped in her womb; and Elisabeth was filled with the Holy Ghost:

Luk|1|42| And she spake out with a loud voice, and said, Blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb.

Luk|1|43| And whence is this to me, that the mother of my Lord should come to me?

Luk|1|44| For, lo, as soon as the voice of thy salutation sounded in mine ears, the babe leaped in my womb for joy.

Luk|1|45| And blessed is she that believed: for there shall be a performance of those things which were told her from the Lord.

Luk|1|46| And Mary said, My soul doth magnify the Lord,

Luk|1|47| And my spirit hath rejoiced in God my Saviour.

Luk|1|48| For he hath regarded the low estate of his handmaiden: for, behold, from henceforth all generations shall call me blessed.

Luk|1|49| For he that is mighty hath done to me great things; and holy is his name.

Luk|1|50| And his mercy is on them that fear him from generation to generation.

Luk|1|51| He hath shewed strength with his arm; he hath scattered the proud in the imagination of their hearts.

Luk|1|52| He hath put down the mighty from their seats, and exalted them of low degree.

Luk|1|53| He hath filled the hungry with good things; and the rich he hath sent empty away.

Luk|1|54| He hath holpen his servant Israel, in remembrance of his mercy;

Luk|1|55| As he spake to our fathers, to Abraham, and to his seed for ever.

Luk|1|56| And Mary abode with her about three months, and returned to her own house.

Luk|1|57| Now Elisabeth's full time came that she should be delivered; and she brought forth a son.

Luk|1|58| And her neighbours and her cousins heard how the Lord had shewed great mercy upon her; and they rejoiced with her.

Luk|1|59| And it came to pass, that on the eighth day they came to circumcise the child; and they called him Zacharias, after the name of his father.

Luk|1|60| And his mother answered and said, Not so; but he shall be called John.

Luk|1|61| And they said unto her, There is none of thy kindred that is called by this name.

Luk|1|62| And they made signs to his father, how he would have him called.

Luk|1|63| And he asked for a writing table, and wrote, saying, His name is John. And they marvelled all.

Luk|1|64| And his mouth was opened immediately, and his tongue loosed, and he spake, and praised God.

Luk|1|65| And fear came on all that dwelt round about them: and all these sayings were noised abroad throughout all the hill country of Judaea.

Luk|1|66| And all they that heard them laid them up in their hearts, saying, What manner of child shall this be! And the hand of the Lord was with him.

Luk|1|67| And his father Zacharias was filled with the Holy Ghost, and prophesied, saying,

Luk|1|68| Blessed be the Lord God of Israel; for he hath visited and redeemed his people,

Luk|1|69| And hath raised up an horn of salvation for us in the house of his servant David;

Luk|1|70| As he spake by the mouth of his holy prophets, which have been since the world began:

Luk|1|71| That we should be saved from our enemies, and from the hand of all that hate us;

Luk|1|72| To perform the mercy promised to our fathers, and to remember his holy covenant;

Luk|1|73| The oath which he sware to our father Abraham,

Luk|1|74| That he would grant unto us, that we being delivered out of the hand of our enemies might serve him without fear,

Luk|1|75| In holiness and righteousness before him, all the days of our life.

Luk|1|76| And thou, child, shalt be called the prophet of the Highest: for thou shalt go before the face of the Lord to prepare his ways;

Luk|1|77| To give knowledge of salvation unto his people by the remission of their sins,

Luk|1|78| Through the tender mercy of our God; whereby the dayspring from on high hath visited us,

Luk|1|79| To give light to them that sit in darkness and in the shadow of death, to guide our feet into the way of peace.

Luk|1|80| And the child grew, and waxed strong in spirit, and was in the deserts till the day of his shewing unto Israel.

Luk|2|1| And it came to pass in those days, that there went out a decree from Caesar Augustus that all the world should be taxed.

Luk|2|2| (And this taxing was first made when Cyrenius was governor of Syria.)

Luk|2|3| And all went to be taxed, every one into his own city.

Luk|2|4| And Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, into Judaea, unto the city of David, which is called Bethlehem; (because he was of the house and lineage of David:)

Luk|2|5| To be taxed with Mary his espoused wife, being great with child.

Luk|2|6| And so it was, that, while they were there, the days were accomplished that she should be delivered.

Luk|2|7| And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn.

Luk|2|8| And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night.

Luk|2|9| And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid.

Luk|2|10| And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.

Luk|2|11| For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.

Luk|2|12| And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.

Luk|2|13| And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying,

Luk|2|14| Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.

Luk|2|15| And it came to pass, as the angels were gone away from them into heaven, the shepherds said one to another, Let us now go even unto Bethlehem, and see this thing which is come to pass, which the Lord hath made known unto us.

Luk|2|16| And they came with haste, and found Mary, and Joseph, and the babe lying in a manger.

Luk|2|17| And when they had seen it, they made known abroad the saying which was told them concerning this child.

Luk|2|18| And all they that heard it wondered at those things which were told them by the shepherds.

Luk|2|19| But Mary kept all these things, and pondered them in her heart.

Luk|2|20| And the shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all the things that they had heard and seen, as it was told unto them.

Luk|2|21| And when eight days were accomplished for the circumcising of the child, his name was called JESUS, which was so named of the angel before he was conceived in the womb.

Luk|2|22| And when the days of her purification according to the law of Moses were accomplished, they brought him to Jerusalem, to present him to the Lord;

Luk|2|23| (As it is written in the law of the LORD, Every male that openeth the womb shall be called holy to the Lord;)

Luk|2|24| And to offer a sacrifice according to that which is said in the law of the Lord, A pair of turtledoves, or two young pigeons.

Luk|2|25| And, behold, there was a man in Jerusalem, whose name was Simeon; and the same man was just and devout, waiting for the consolation of Israel: and the Holy Ghost was upon him.

Luk|2|26| And it was revealed unto him by the Holy Ghost, that he should not see death, before he had seen the Lord's Christ.

Luk|2|27| And he came by the Spirit into the temple: and when the parents brought in the child Jesus, to do for him after the custom of the law,

Luk|2|28| Then took he him up in his arms, and blessed God, and said,

Luk|2|29| Lord, now lettest thou thy servant depart in peace, according to thy word:

Luk|2|30| For mine eyes have seen thy salvation,

Luk|2|31| Which thou hast prepared before the face of all people;

Luk|2|32| A light to lighten the Gentiles, and the glory of thy people Israel.

Luk|2|33| And Joseph and his mother marvelled at those things which were spoken of him.

Luk|2|34| And Simeon blessed them, and said unto Mary his mother, Behold, this child is set for the fall and rising again of many in Israel; and for a sign which shall be spoken against;

Luk|2|35| (Yea, a sword shall pierce through thy own soul also,) that the thoughts of many hearts may be revealed.

Luk|2|36| And there was one Anna, a prophetess, the daughter of Phanuel, of the tribe of Aser: she was of a great age, and had lived with an husband seven years from her virginity;

Luk|2|37| And she was a widow of about fourscore and four years, which departed not from the temple, but served God with fastings and prayers night and day.

Luk|2|38| And she coming in that instant gave thanks likewise unto the Lord, and spake of him to all them that looked for redemption in Jerusalem.

Luk|2|39| And when they had performed all things according to the law of the Lord, they returned into Galilee, to their own city Nazareth.

Luk|2|40| And the child grew, and waxed strong in spirit, filled with wisdom: and the grace of God was upon him.

Luk|2|41| Now his parents went to Jerusalem every year at the feast of the passover.

Luk|2|42| And when he was twelve years old, they went up to Jerusalem after the custom of the feast.

Luk|2|43| And when they had fulfilled the days, as they returned, the child Jesus tarried behind in Jerusalem; and Joseph and his mother knew not of it.

Luk|2|44| But they, supposing him to have been in the company, went a day's journey; and they sought him among their kinsfolk and acquaintance.

Luk|2|45| And when they found him not, they turned back again to Jerusalem, seeking him.

Luk|2|46| And it came to pass, that after three days they found him in the temple, sitting in the midst of the doctors, both hearing them, and asking them questions.

Luk|2|47| And all that heard him were astonished at his understanding and answers.

Luk|2|48| And when they saw him, they were amazed: and his mother said unto him, Son, why hast thou thus dealt with us? behold, thy father and I have sought thee sorrowing.

Luk|2|49| And he said unto them, How is it that ye sought me? wist ye not that I must be about my Father's business?

Luk|2|50| And they understood not the saying which he spake unto them.

Luk|2|51| And he went down with them, and came to Nazareth, and was subject unto them: but his mother kept all these sayings in her heart.

Luk|2|52| And Jesus increased in wisdom and stature, and in favour with God and man.

Luk|3|1| Now in the fifteenth year of the reign of Tiberius Caesar, Pontius Pilate being governor of Judaea, and Herod being tetrarch of Galilee, and his brother Philip tetrarch of Ituraea and of the region of Trachonitis, and Lysanias the tetrarch of Abilene,

Luk|3|2| Annas and Caiaphas being the high priests, the word of God came unto John the son of Zacharias in the wilderness.

Luk|3|3| And he came into all the country about Jordan, preaching the baptism of repentance for the remission of sins;

Luk|3|4| As it is written in the book of the words of Esaias the prophet, saying, The voice of one crying in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the Lord, make his paths straight.

Luk|3|5| Every valley shall be filled, and every mountain and hill shall be brought low; and the crooked shall be made straight, and the rough ways shall be made smooth;

Luk|3|6| And all flesh shall see the salvation of God.

Luk|3|7| Then said he to the multitude that came forth to be baptized of him, O generation of vipers, who hath warned you to flee from the wrath to come?

Luk|3|8| Bring forth therefore fruits worthy of repentance, and begin not to say within yourselves, We have Abraham to our father: for I say unto you, That God is able of these stones to raise up children unto Abraham.

Luk|3|9| And now also the axe is laid unto the root of the trees: every tree therefore which bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.

Luk|3|10| And the people asked him, saying, What shall we do then?

Luk|3|11| He answereth and saith unto them, He that hath two coats, let him impart to him that hath none; and he that hath meat, let him do likewise.

Luk|3|12| Then came also publicans to be baptized, and said unto him, Master, what shall we do?

Luk|3|13| And he said unto them, Exact no more than that which is appointed you.

Luk|3|14| And the soldiers likewise demanded of him, saying, And what shall we do? And he said unto them, Do violence to no man, neither accuse any falsely; and be content with your wages.

Luk|3|15| And as the people were in expectation, and all men mused in their hearts of John, whether he were the Christ, or not;

Luk|3|16| John answered, saying unto them all, I indeed baptize you with water; but one mightier than I cometh, the latchet of whose shoes I am not worthy to unloose: he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost and with fire:

Luk|3|17| Whose fan is in his hand, and he will throughly purge his floor, and will gather the wheat into his garner; but the chaff he will burn with fire unquenchable.

Luk|3|18| And many other things in his exhortation preached he unto the people.

Luk|3|19| But Herod the tetrarch, being reproved by him for Herodias his brother Philip's wife, and for all the evils which Herod had done,

Luk|3|20| Added yet this above all, that he shut up John in prison.

Luk|3|21| Now when all the people were baptized, it came to pass, that Jesus also being baptized, and praying, the heaven was opened,

Luk|3|22| And the Holy Ghost descended in a bodily shape like a dove upon him, and a voice came from heaven, which said, Thou art my beloved Son; in thee I am well pleased.

Luk|3|23| And Jesus himself began to be about thirty years of age, being (as was supposed) the son of Joseph, which was the son of Heli,

Luk|3|24| Which was the son of Matthat, which was the son of Levi, which was the son of Melchi, which was the son of Janna, which was the son of Joseph,

Luk|3|25| Which was the son of Mattathias, which was the son of Amos, which was the son of Naum, which was the son of Esli, which was the son of Nagge,

Luk|3|26| Which was the son of Maath, which was the son of Mattathias, which was the son of Semei, which was the son of Joseph, which was the son of Juda,

Luk|3|27| Which was the son of Joanna, which was the son of Rhesa, which was the son of Zorobabel, which was the son of Salathiel, which was the son of Neri,

Luk|3|28| Which was the son of Melchi, which was the son of Addi, which was the son of Cosam, which was the son of Elmodam, which was the son of Er,

Luk|3|29| Which was the son of Jose, which was the son of Eliezer, which was the son of Jorim, which was the son of Matthat, which was the son of Levi,

Luk|3|30| Which was the son of Simeon, which was the son of Juda, which was the son of Joseph, which was the son of Jonan, which was the son of Eliakim,

Luk|3|31| Which was the son of Melea, which was the son of Menan, which was the son of Mattatha, which was the son of Nathan, which was the son of David,

Luk|3|32| Which was the son of Jesse, which was the son of Obed, which was the son of Booz, which was the son of Salmon, which was the son of Naasson,

Luk|3|33| Which was the son of Aminadab, which was the son of Aram, which was the son of Esrom, which was the son of Phares, which was the son of Juda,

Luk|3|34| Which was the son of Jacob, which was the son of Isaac, which was the son of Abraham, which was the son of Thara, which was the son of Nachor,

Luk|3|35| Which was the son of Saruch, which was the son of Ragau, which was the son of Phalec, which was the son of Heber, which was the son of Sala,

Luk|3|36| Which was the son of Cainan, which was the son of Arphaxad, which was the son of Sem, which was the son of Noe, which was the son of Lamech,

Luk|3|37| Which was the son of Mathusala, which was the son of Enoch, which was the son of Jared, which was the son of Maleleel, which was the son of Cainan,

Luk|3|38| Which was the son of Enos, which was the son of Seth, which was the son of Adam, which was the son of God.

Luk|4|1| And Jesus being full of the Holy Ghost returned from Jordan, and was led by the Spirit into the wilderness,

Luk|4|2| Being forty days tempted of the devil. And in those days he did eat nothing: and when they were ended, he afterward hungered.

Luk|4|3| And the devil said unto him, If thou be the Son of God, command this stone that it be made bread.

Luk|4|4| And Jesus answered him, saying, It is written, That man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word of God.

Luk|4|5| And the devil, taking him up into an high mountain, shewed unto him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time.

Luk|4|6| And the devil said unto him, All this power will I give thee, and the glory of them: for that is delivered unto me; and to whomsoever I will I give it.

Luk|4|7| If thou therefore wilt worship me, all shall be thine.

Luk|4|8| And Jesus answered and said unto him, Get thee behind me, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.

Luk|4|9| And he brought him to Jerusalem, and set him on a pinnacle of the temple, and said unto him, If thou be the Son of God, cast thyself down from hence:

Luk|4|10| For it is written, He shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee:

Luk|4|11| And in their hands they shall bear thee up, lest at any time thou dash thy foot against a stone.

Luk|4|12| And Jesus answering said unto him, It is said, Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God.

Luk|4|13| And when the devil had ended all the temptation, he departed from him for a season.

Luk|4|14| And Jesus returned in the power of the Spirit into Galilee: and there went out a fame of him through all the region round about.

Luk|4|15| And he taught in their synagogues, being glorified of all.

Luk|4|16| And he came to Nazareth, where he had been brought up: and, as his custom was, he went into the synagogue on the sabbath day, and stood up for to read.

Luk|4|17| And there was delivered unto him the book of the prophet Esaias. And when he had opened the book, he found the place where it was written,

Luk|4|18| The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised,

Luk|4|19| To preach the acceptable year of the Lord.

Luk|4|20| And he closed the book, and he gave it again to the minister, and sat down. And the eyes of all them that were in the synagogue were fastened on him.

Luk|4|21| And he began to say unto them, This day is this scripture fulfilled in your ears.

Luk|4|22| And all bare him witness, and wondered at the gracious words which proceeded out of his mouth. And they said, Is not this Joseph's son?

Luk|4|23| And he said unto them, Ye will surely say unto me this proverb, Physician, heal thyself: whatsoever we have heard done in Capernaum, do also here in thy country.

Luk|4|24| And he said, Verily I say unto you, No prophet is accepted in his own country.

Luk|4|25| But I tell you of a truth, many widows were in Israel in the days of Elias, when the heaven was shut up three years and six months, when great famine was throughout all the land;

Luk|4|26| But unto none of them was Elias sent, save unto Sarepta, a city of Sidon, unto a woman that was a widow.

Luk|4|27| And many lepers were in Israel in the time of Eliseus the prophet; and none of them was cleansed, saving Naaman the Syrian.

Luk|4|28| And all they in the synagogue, when they heard these things, were filled with wrath,

Luk|4|29| And rose up, and thrust him out of the city, and led him unto the brow of the hill whereon their city was built, that they might cast him down headlong.

Luk|4|30| But he passing through the midst of them went his way,

Luk|4|31| And came down to Capernaum, a city of Galilee, and taught them on the sabbath days.

Luk|4|32| And they were astonished at his doctrine: for his word was with power.

Luk|4|33| And in the synagogue there was a man, which had a spirit of an unclean devil, and cried out with a loud voice,

Luk|4|34| Saying, Let us alone; what have we to do with thee, thou Jesus of Nazareth? art thou come to destroy us? I know thee who thou art; the Holy One of God.

Luk|4|35| And Jesus rebuked him, saying, Hold thy peace, and come out of him. And when the devil had thrown him in the midst, he came out of him, and hurt him not.

Luk|4|36| And they were all amazed, and spake among themselves, saying, What a word is this! for with authority and power he commandeth the unclean spirits, and they come out.

Luk|4|37| And the fame of him went out into every place of the country round about.

Luk|4|38| And he arose out of the synagogue, and entered into Simon's house. And Simon's wife's mother was taken with a great fever; and they besought him for her.

Luk|4|39| And he stood over her, and rebuked the fever; and it left her: and immediately she arose and ministered unto them.

Luk|4|40| Now when the sun was setting, all they that had any sick with divers diseases brought them unto him; and he laid his hands on every one of them, and healed them.

Luk|4|41| And devils also came out of many, crying out, and saying, Thou art Christ the Son of God. And he rebuking them suffered them not to speak: for they knew that he was Christ.

Luk|4|42| And when it was day, he departed and went into a desert place: and the people sought him, and came unto him, and stayed him, that he should not depart from them.

Luk|4|43| And he said unto them, I must preach the kingdom of God to other cities also: for therefore am I sent.

Luk|4|44| And he preached in the synagogues of Galilee.

Luk|5|1| And it came to pass, that, as the people pressed upon him to hear the word of God, he stood by the lake of Gennesaret,

Luk|5|2| And saw two ships standing by the lake: but the fishermen were gone out of them, and were washing their nets.

Luk|5|3| And he entered into one of the ships, which was Simon's, and prayed him that he would thrust out a little from the land. And he sat down, and taught the people out of the ship.

Luk|5|4| Now when he had left speaking, he said unto Simon, Launch out into the deep, and let down your nets for a draught.

Luk|5|5| And Simon answering said unto him, Master, we have toiled all the night, and have taken nothing: nevertheless at thy word I will let down the net.

Luk|5|6| And when they had this done, they inclosed a great multitude of fishes: and their net brake.

Luk|5|7| And they beckoned unto their partners, which were in the other ship, that they should come and help them. And they came, and filled both the ships, so that they began to sink.

Luk|5|8| When Simon Peter saw it, he fell down at Jesus' knees, saying, Depart from me; for I am a sinful man, O Lord.

Luk|5|9| For he was astonished, and all that were with him, at the draught of the fishes which they had taken:

Luk|5|10| And so was also James, and John, the sons of Zebedee, which were partners with Simon. And Jesus said unto Simon, Fear not; from henceforth thou shalt catch men.

Luk|5|11| And when they had brought their ships to land, they forsook all, and followed him.

Luk|5|12| And it came to pass, when he was in a certain city, behold a man full of leprosy: who seeing Jesus fell on his face, and besought him, saying, Lord, if thou wilt, thou canst make me clean.

Luk|5|13| And he put forth his hand, and touched him, saying, I will: be thou clean. And immediately the leprosy departed from him.

Luk|5|14| And he charged him to tell no man: but go, and shew thyself to the priest, and offer for thy cleansing, according as Moses commanded, for a testimony unto them.

Luk|5|15| But so much the more went there a fame abroad of him: and great multitudes came together to hear, and to be healed by him of their infirmities.

Luk|5|16| And he withdrew himself into the wilderness, and prayed.

Luk|5|17| And it came to pass on a certain day, as he was teaching, that there were Pharisees and doctors of the law sitting by, which were come out of every town of Galilee, and Judaea, and Jerusalem: and the power of the Lord was present to heal them.

Luk|5|18| And, behold, men brought in a bed a man which was taken with a palsy: and they sought means to bring him in, and to lay him before him.

Luk|5|19| And when they could not find by what way they might bring him in because of the multitude, they went upon the housetop, and let him down through the tiling with his couch into the midst before Jesus.

Luk|5|20| And when he saw their faith, he said unto him, Man, thy sins are forgiven thee.

Luk|5|21| And the scribes and the Pharisees began to reason, saying, Who is this which speaketh blasphemies? Who can forgive sins, but God alone?

Luk|5|22| But when Jesus perceived their thoughts, he answering said unto them, What reason ye in your hearts?

Luk|5|23| Whether is easier, to say, Thy sins be forgiven thee; or to say, Rise up and walk?

Luk|5|24| But that ye may know that the Son of man hath power upon earth to forgive sins, (he said unto the sick of the palsy,) I say unto thee, Arise, and take up thy couch, and go into thine house.

Luk|5|25| And immediately he rose up before them, and took up that whereon he lay, and departed to his own house, glorifying God.

Luk|5|26| And they were all amazed, and they glorified God, and were filled with fear, saying, We have seen strange things to day.

Luk|5|27| And after these things he went forth, and saw a publican, named Levi, sitting at the receipt of custom: and he said unto him, Follow me.

Luk|5|28| And he left all, rose up, and followed him.

Luk|5|29| And Levi made him a great feast in his own house: and there was a great company of publicans and of others that sat down with them.

Luk|5|30| But their scribes and Pharisees murmured against his disciples, saying, Why do ye eat and drink with publicans and sinners?

Luk|5|31| And Jesus answering said unto them, They that are whole need not a physician; but they that are sick.

Luk|5|32| I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.

Luk|5|33| And they said unto him, Why do the disciples of John fast often, and make prayers, and likewise the disciples of the Pharisees; but thine eat and drink?

Luk|5|34| And he said unto them, Can ye make the children of the bridechamber fast, while the bridegroom is with them?

Luk|5|35| But the days will come, when the bridegroom shall be taken away from them, and then shall they fast in those days.

Luk|5|36| And he spake also a parable unto them; No man putteth a piece of a new garment upon an old; if otherwise, then both the new maketh a rent, and the piece that was taken out of the new agreeth not with the old.

Luk|5|37| And no man putteth new wine into old bottles; else the new wine will burst the bottles, and be spilled, and the bottles shall perish.

Luk|5|38| But new wine must be put into new bottles; and both are preserved.

Luk|5|39| No man also having drunk old wine straightway desireth new: for he saith, The old is better.

Luk|6|1| And it came to pass on the second sabbath after the first, that he went through the corn fields; and his disciples plucked the ears of corn, and did eat, rubbing them in their hands.

Luk|6|2| And certain of the Pharisees said unto them, Why do ye that which is not lawful to do on the sabbath days?

Luk|6|3| And Jesus answering them said, Have ye not read so much as this, what David did, when himself was an hungred, and they which were with him;

Luk|6|4| How he went into the house of God, and did take and eat the shewbread, and gave also to them that were with him; which it is not lawful to eat but for the priests alone?

Luk|6|5| And he said unto them, That the Son of man is Lord also of the sabbath.

Luk|6|6| And it came to pass also on another sabbath, that he entered into the synagogue and taught: and there was a man whose right hand was withered.

Luk|6|7| And the scribes and Pharisees watched him, whether he would heal on the sabbath day; that they might find an accusation against him.

Luk|6|8| But he knew their thoughts, and said to the man which had the withered hand, Rise up, and stand forth in the midst. And he arose and stood forth.

Luk|6|9| Then said Jesus unto them, I will ask you one thing; Is it lawful on the sabbath days to do good, or to do evil? to save life, or to destroy it?

Luk|6|10| And looking round about upon them all, he said unto the man, Stretch forth thy hand. And he did so: and his hand was restored whole as the other.

Luk|6|11| And they were filled with madness; and communed one with another what they might do to Jesus.

Luk|6|12| And it came to pass in those days, that he went out into a mountain to pray, and continued all night in prayer to God.

Luk|6|13| And when it was day, he called unto him his disciples: and of them he chose twelve, whom also he named apostles;

Luk|6|14| Simon, (whom he also named Peter,) and Andrew his brother, James and John, Philip and Bartholomew,

Luk|6|15| Matthew and Thomas, James the son of Alphaeus, and Simon called Zelotes,

Luk|6|16| And Judas the brother of James, and Judas Iscariot, which also was the traitor.

Luk|6|17| And he came down with them, and stood in the plain, and the company of his disciples, and a great multitude of people out of all Judaea and Jerusalem, and from the sea coast of Tyre and Sidon, which came to hear him, and to be healed of their diseases;

Luk|6|18| And they that were vexed with unclean spirits: and they were healed.

Luk|6|19| And the whole multitude sought to touch him: for there went virtue out of him, and healed them all.

Luk|6|20| And he lifted up his eyes on his disciples, and said, Blessed be ye poor: for yours is the kingdom of God.

Luk|6|21| Blessed are ye that hunger now: for ye shall be filled. Blessed are ye that weep now: for ye shall laugh.

Luk|6|22| Blessed are ye, when men shall hate you, and when they shall separate you from their company, and shall reproach you, and cast out your name as evil, for the Son of man's sake.

Luk|6|23| Rejoice ye in that day, and leap for joy: for, behold, your reward is great in heaven: for in the like manner did their fathers unto the prophets.

Luk|6|24| But woe unto you that are rich! for ye have received your consolation.

Luk|6|25| Woe unto you that are full! for ye shall hunger. Woe unto you that laugh now! for ye shall mourn and weep.

Luk|6|26| Woe unto you, when all men shall speak well of you! for so did their fathers to the false prophets.

Luk|6|27| But I say unto you which hear, Love your enemies, do good to them which hate you,

Luk|6|28| Bless them that curse you, and pray for them which despitefully use you.

Luk|6|29| And unto him that smiteth thee on the one cheek offer also the other; and him that taketh away thy cloak forbid not to take thy coat also.

Luk|6|30| Give to every man that asketh of thee; and of him that taketh away thy goods ask them not again.

Luk|6|31| And as ye would that men should do to you, do ye also to them likewise.

Luk|6|32| For if ye love them which love you, what thank have ye? for sinners also love those that love them.

Luk|6|33| And if ye do good to them which do good to you, what thank have ye?for sinners also do even the same.

Luk|6|34| And if ye lend to them of whom ye hope to receive, what thank have ye? for sinners also lend to sinners, to receive as much again.

Luk|6|35| But love ye your enemies, and do good, and lend, hoping for nothing again; and your reward shall be great, and ye shall be the children of the Highest: for he is kind unto the unthankful and to the evil.

Luk|6|36| Be ye therefore merciful, as your Father also is merciful.

Luk|6|37| Judge not, and ye shall not be judged: condemn not, and ye shall not be condemned: forgive, and ye shall be forgiven:

Luk|6|38| Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again.

Luk|6|39| And he spake a parable unto them, Can the blind lead the blind? shall they not both fall into the ditch?

Luk|6|40| The disciple is not above his master: but every one that is perfect shall be as his master.

Luk|6|41| And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother's eye, but perceivest not the beam that is in thine own eye?

Luk|6|42| Either how canst thou say to thy brother, Brother, let me pull out the mote that is in thine eye, when thou thyself beholdest not the beam that is in thine own eye? Thou hypocrite, cast out first the beam out of thine own eye, and then shalt thou see clearly to pull out the mote that is in thy brother's eye.

Luk|6|43| For a good tree bringeth not forth corrupt fruit; neither doth a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.

Luk|6|44| For every tree is known by his own fruit. For of thorns men do not gather figs, nor of a bramble bush gather they grapes.

Luk|6|45| A good man out of the good treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is good; and an evil man out of the evil treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is evil: for of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaketh.

Luk|6|46| And why call ye me, Lord, Lord, and do not the things which I say?

Luk|6|47| Whosoever cometh to me, and heareth my sayings, and doeth them, I will shew you to whom he is like:

Luk|6|48| He is like a man which built an house, and digged deep, and laid the foundation on a rock: and when the flood arose, the stream beat vehemently upon that house, and could not shake it: for it was founded upon a rock.

Luk|6|49| But he that heareth, and doeth not, is like a man that without a foundation built an house upon the earth; against which the stream did beat vehemently, and immediately it fell; and the ruin of that house was great.

Luk|7|1| Now when he had ended all his sayings in the audience of the people, he entered into Capernaum.

Luk|7|2| And a certain centurion's servant, who was dear unto him, was sick, and ready to die.

Luk|7|3| And when he heard of Jesus, he sent unto him the elders of the Jews, beseeching him that he would come and heal his servant.

Luk|7|4| And when they came to Jesus, they besought him instantly, saying, That he was worthy for whom he should do this:

Luk|7|5| For he loveth our nation, and he hath built us a synagogue.

Luk|7|6| Then Jesus went with them. And when he was now not far from the house, the centurion sent friends to him, saying unto him, Lord, trouble not thyself: for I am not worthy that thou shouldest enter under my roof:

Luk|7|7| Wherefore neither thought I myself worthy to come unto thee: but say in a word, and my servant shall be healed.

Luk|7|8| For I also am a man set under authority, having under me soldiers, and I say unto one, Go, and he goeth; and to another, Come, and he cometh; and to my servant, Do this, and he doeth it.

Luk|7|9| When Jesus heard these things, he marvelled at him, and turned him about, and said unto the people that followed him, I say unto you, I have not found so great faith, no, not in Israel.

Luk|7|10| And they that were sent, returning to the house, found the servant whole that had been sick.

Luk|7|11| And it came to pass the day after, that he went into a city called Nain; and many of his disciples went with him, and much people.

Luk|7|12| Now when he came nigh to the gate of the city, behold, there was a dead man carried out, the only son of his mother, and she was a widow: and much people of the city was with her.

Luk|7|13| And when the Lord saw her, he had compassion on her, and said unto her, Weep not.

Luk|7|14| And he came and touched the bier: and they that bare him stood still. And he said, Young man, I say unto thee, Arise.

Luk|7|15| And he that was dead sat up, and began to speak. And he delivered him to his mother.

Luk|7|16| And there came a fear on all: and they glorified God, saying, That a great prophet is risen up among us; and, That God hath visited his people.

Luk|7|17| And this rumour of him went forth throughout all Judaea, and throughout all the region round about.

Luk|7|18| And the disciples of John shewed him of all these things.

Luk|7|19| And John calling unto him two of his disciples sent them to Jesus, saying, Art thou he that should come? or look we for another?

Luk|7|20| When the men were come unto him, they said, John Baptist hath sent us unto thee, saying, Art thou he that should come? or look we for another?

Luk|7|21| And in that same hour he cured many of their infirmities and plagues, and of evil spirits; and unto many that were blind he gave sight.

Luk|7|22| Then Jesus answering said unto them, Go 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.

Luk|7|23| And blessed is he, whosoever shall not be offended in me.

Luk|7|24| And when the messengers of John were departed, he began to speak unto the people concerning John, What went ye out into the wilderness for to see?A reed shaken with the wind?

Luk|7|25| But what went ye out for to see? A man clothed in soft raiment?Behold, they which are gorgeously apparelled, and live delicately, are in kings' courts.

Luk|7|26| But what went ye out for to see? A prophet? Yea, I say unto you, and much more than a prophet.

Luk|7|27| This is he, of whom it is written, Behold, I send my messenger before thy face, which shall prepare thy way before thee.

Luk|7|28| For I say unto you, Among those that are 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.

Luk|7|29| And all the people that heard him, and the publicans, justified God, being baptized with the baptism of John.

Luk|7|30| But the Pharisees and lawyers rejected the counsel of God against themselves, being not baptized of him.

Luk|7|31| And the Lord said, Whereunto then shall I liken the men of this generation? and to what are they like?

Luk|7|32| They are like unto children sitting in the marketplace, 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.

Luk|7|33| For John the Baptist came neither eating bread nor drinking wine; and ye say, He hath a devil.

Luk|7|34| The Son of man is come eating and drinking; and ye say, Behold a gluttonous man, and a winebibber, a friend of publicans and sinners!

Luk|7|35| But wisdom is justified of all her children.

Luk|7|36| And one of the Pharisees desired him that he would eat with him. And he went into the Pharisee's house, and sat down to meat.

Luk|7|37| And, behold, a woman in the city, which was a sinner, when she knew that Jesus sat at meat in the Pharisee's house, brought an alabaster box of ointment,

Luk|7|38| And stood at his feet 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.

Luk|7|39| Now when the Pharisee which had bidden him saw 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.

Luk|7|40| And Jesus answering said unto him, Simon, I have somewhat to say unto thee. And he saith, Master, say on.

Luk|7|41| There was a certain creditor which had two debtors: the one owed five hundred pence, and the other fifty.

Luk|7|42| And when they had nothing to pay, he frankly forgave them both. Tell me therefore, which of them will love him most?

Luk|7|43| Simon answered and said, I suppose that he, to whom he forgave most. And he said unto him, Thou hast rightly judged.

Luk|7|44| And he turned to the woman, and said unto Simon, Seest thou this woman? I entered into thine house, thou gavest me no water for my feet: but she hath washed my feet with tears, and wiped them with the hairs of her head.

Luk|7|45| Thou gavest me no kiss: but this woman since the time I came in hath not ceased to kiss my feet.

Luk|7|46| My head with oil thou didst not anoint: but this woman hath anointed my feet with ointment.

Luk|7|47| Wherefore I say unto thee, Her sins, which are many, are forgiven; for she loved much: but to whom little is forgiven, the same loveth little.

Luk|7|48| And he said unto her, Thy sins are forgiven.

Luk|7|49| And they that sat at meat with him began to say within themselves, Who is this that forgiveth sins also?

Luk|7|50| And he said to the woman, Thy faith hath saved thee; go in peace.

Luk|8|1| And it came to pass afterward, that he went throughout every city and village, preaching and shewing the glad tidings of the kingdom of God: and the twelve were with him,

Luk|8|2| And certain women, which had been healed of evil spirits and infirmities, Mary called Magdalene, out of whom went seven devils,

Luk|8|3| And Joanna the wife of Chuza Herod's steward, and Susanna, and many others, which ministered unto him of their substance.

Luk|8|4| And when much people were gathered together, and were come to him out of every city, he spake by a parable:

Luk|8|5| A sower went out to sow his seed: and as he sowed, some fell by the way side; and it was trodden down, and the fowls of the air devoured it.

Luk|8|6| And some fell upon a rock; and as soon as it was sprung up, it withered away, because it lacked moisture.

Luk|8|7| And some fell among thorns; and the thorns sprang up with it, and choked it.

Luk|8|8| And other fell on good ground, and sprang up, and bare fruit an hundredfold. And when he had said these things, he cried, He that hath ears to hear, let him hear.

Luk|8|9| And his disciples asked him, saying, What might this parable be?

Luk|8|10| And he said, Unto you it is given to know the mysteries of the kingdom of God: but to others in parables; that seeing they might not see, and hearing they might not understand.

Luk|8|11| Now the parable is this: The seed is the word of God.

Luk|8|12| Those by the way side are they that hear; then cometh the devil, and taketh away the word out of their hearts, lest they should believe and be saved.

Luk|8|13| They on the rock are they, which, 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.

Luk|8|14| And that 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.

Luk|8|15| But that on the good ground are they, which in an honest and good heart, having heard the word, keep it, and bring forth fruit with patience.

Luk|8|16| No man, when he hath lighted a candle, covereth it with a vessel, or putteth it under a bed; but setteth it on a candlestick, that they which enter in may see the light.

Luk|8|17| For nothing is secret, that shall not be made manifest; neither any thing hid, that shall not be known and come abroad.

Luk|8|18| Take heed therefore how ye hear: for whosoever hath, to him shall be given; and whosoever hath not, from him shall be taken even that which he seemeth to have.

Luk|8|19| Then came to him his mother and his brethren, and could not come at him for the press.

Luk|8|20| And it was told him by certain which said, Thy mother and thy brethren stand without, desiring to see thee.

Luk|8|21| And he answered and said unto them, My mother and my brethren are these which hear the word of God, and do it.

Luk|8|22| Now it came to pass on a certain day, that he went into a ship with his disciples: and he said unto them, Let us go over unto the other side of the lake. And they launched forth.

Luk|8|23| But as they sailed he fell asleep: and there came down a storm of wind on the lake; and they were filled with water, and were in jeopardy.

Luk|8|24| And they came to him, and awoke him, saying, Master, master, we perish. Then he arose, and rebuked the wind and the raging of the water: and they ceased, and there was a calm.

Luk|8|25| And he said 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.

Luk|8|26| And they arrived at the country of the Gadarenes, which is over against Galilee.

Luk|8|27| And when he went forth 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.

Luk|8|28| When he saw Jesus, he cried out, and fell down before 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.

Luk|8|29| (For he had 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.)

Luk|8|30| And Jesus asked him, saying, What is thy name? And he said, Legion: because many devils were entered into him.

Luk|8|31| And they besought him that he would not command them to go out into the deep.

Luk|8|32| And there was there an 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.

Luk|8|33| Then went the devils out of the man, and entered into the swine: and the herd ran violently down a steep place into the lake, and were choked.

Luk|8|34| When they that fed them saw what was done, they fled, and went and told it in the city and in the country.

Luk|8|35| Then they went out to 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.

Luk|8|36| They also which saw it told them by what means he that was possessed of the devils was healed.

Luk|8|37| Then 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.

Luk|8|38| Now the man out of whom the devils were departed besought him that he might be with him: but Jesus sent him away, saying,

Luk|8|39| Return to thine own house, and shew 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.

Luk|8|40| And it came to pass, that, when Jesus was returned, the people gladly received him: for they were all waiting for him.

Luk|8|41| And, behold, there came a man named Jairus, 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:

Luk|8|42| For he had one only daughter, about twelve years of age, and she lay a dying. But as he went the people thronged him.

Luk|8|43| And a woman having an issue of blood twelve years, which had spent all her living upon physicians, neither could be healed of any,

Luk|8|44| Came behind him, and touched the border of his garment: and immediately her issue of blood stanched.

Luk|8|45| And Jesus said, 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?

Luk|8|46| And Jesus said, Somebody hath touched me: for I perceive that virtue is gone out of me.

Luk|8|47| And when the woman saw 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.

Luk|8|48| And he said unto her, Daughter, be of good comfort: thy faith hath made thee whole; go in peace.

Luk|8|49| While he yet spake, there cometh one from the ruler of the synagogue's house, saying to him, Thy daughter is dead; trouble not the Master.

Luk|8|50| But when Jesus heard it, he answered him, saying, Fear not: believe only, and she shall be made whole.

Luk|8|51| And when he came 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.

Luk|8|52| And all wept, and bewailed her: but he said, Weep not; she is not dead, but sleepeth.

Luk|8|53| And they laughed him to scorn, knowing that she was dead.

Luk|8|54| And he put them all out, and took her by the hand, and called, saying, Maid, arise.

Luk|8|55| And her spirit came again, and she arose straightway: and he commanded to give her meat.

Luk|8|56| And her parents were astonished: but he charged them that they should tell no man what was done.

Luk|9|1| Then he called his twelve disciples together, and gave them power and authority over all devils, and to cure diseases.

Luk|9|2| And he sent them to preach the kingdom of God, and to heal the sick.

Luk|9|3| And he said unto them, Take nothing for your journey, neither staves, nor scrip, neither bread, neither money; neither have two coats apiece.

Luk|9|4| And whatsoever house ye enter into, there abide, and thence depart.

Luk|9|5| And whosoever will not receive you, when ye go out of that city, shake off the very dust from your feet for a testimony against them.

Luk|9|6| And they departed, and went through the towns, preaching the gospel, and healing every where.

Luk|9|7| Now Herod the tetrarch heard of all that was done by him: and he was perplexed, because that it was said of some, that John was risen from the dead;

Luk|9|8| And of some, that Elias had appeared; and of others, that one of the old prophets was risen again.

Luk|9|9| And Herod said, John have I beheaded: but who is this, of whom I hear such things? And he desired to see him.

Luk|9|10| And the apostles, when they were returned, told him all that they had done. And he took them, and went aside privately into a desert place belonging to the city called Bethsaida.

Luk|9|11| And the people, when they knew it, followed him: and he received them, and spake unto them of the kingdom of God, and healed them that had need of healing.

Luk|9|12| And when the day began to wear away, then came the twelve, and said unto him, Send the multitude away, that they may go into the towns and country round about, and lodge, and get victuals: for we are here in a desert place.

Luk|9|13| But he said 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.

Luk|9|14| For they were about five thousand men. And he said to his disciples, Make them sit down by fifties in a company.

Luk|9|15| And they did so, and made them all sit down.

Luk|9|16| Then he took the five loaves and the two fishes, and looking up to heaven, he blessed them, and brake, and gave to the disciples to set before the multitude.

Luk|9|17| And they did eat, and were all filled: and there was taken up of fragments that remained to them twelve baskets.

Luk|9|18| And it came to pass, as he was alone praying, his disciples were with him: and he asked them, saying, Whom say the people that I am?

Luk|9|19| They answering said, John the Baptist; but some say, Elias; and others say, that one of the old prophets is risen again.

Luk|9|20| He said unto them, But whom say ye that I am? Peter answering said, The Christ of God.

Luk|9|21| And he straitly charged them, and commanded them to tell no man that thing;

Luk|9|22| Saying, The Son of man must suffer many things, and be rejected of the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be slain, and be raised the third day.

Luk|9|23| And he said to them all, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me.

Luk|9|24| For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: but whosoever will lose his life for my sake, the same shall save it.

Luk|9|25| For what is a man advantaged, if he gain the whole world, and lose himself, or be cast away?

Luk|9|26| For whosoever shall 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.

Luk|9|27| But I tell you of a truth, there be some standing here, which shall not taste of death, till they see the kingdom of God.

Luk|9|28| And it came to pass about an eight days after these sayings, he took Peter and John and James, and went up into a mountain to pray.

Luk|9|29| And as he prayed, the fashion of his countenance was altered, and his raiment was white and glistering.

Luk|9|30| And, behold, there talked with him two men, which were Moses and Elias:

Luk|9|31| Who appeared in glory, and spake of his decease which he should accomplish at Jerusalem.

Luk|9|32| But Peter and they that were with him were heavy with sleep: and when they were awake, they saw his glory, and the two men that stood with him.

Luk|9|33| And it came to pass, as they departed 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.

Luk|9|34| While he thus spake, there came a cloud, and overshadowed them: and they feared as they entered into the cloud.

Luk|9|35| And there came a voice out of the cloud, saying, This is my beloved Son: hear him.

Luk|9|36| And when the voice was past, Jesus was found alone. And they kept it close, and told no man in those days any of those things which they had seen.

Luk|9|37| And it came to pass, that on the next day, when they were come down from the hill, much people met him.

Luk|9|38| And, behold, a man of the company cried out, saying, Master, I beseech thee, look upon my son: for he is mine only child.

Luk|9|39| And, lo, a spirit taketh him, and he suddenly crieth out; and it teareth him that he foameth again, and bruising him hardly departeth from him.

Luk|9|40| And I besought thy disciples to cast him out; and they could not.

Luk|9|41| And Jesus answering said, O faithless and perverse generation, how long shall I be with you, and suffer you? Bring thy son hither.

Luk|9|42| And as he 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.

Luk|9|43| And they were all amazed at the mighty power of God. But while they wondered every one at all things which Jesus did, he said unto his disciples,

Luk|9|44| Let these sayings sink down into your ears: for the Son of man shall be delivered into the hands of men.

Luk|9|45| But they understood not this saying, and it was hid from them, that they perceived it not: and they feared to ask him of that saying.

Luk|9|46| Then there arose a reasoning among them, which of them should be greatest.

Luk|9|47| And Jesus, perceiving the thought of their heart, took a child, and set him by him,

Luk|9|48| And said unto them, Whosoever shall receive this child in my name receiveth me: and whosoever shall receive me receiveth him that sent me: for he that is least among you all, the same shall be great.

Luk|9|49| And John answered and said, Master, we saw one casting out devils in thy name; and we forbad him, because he followeth not with us.

Luk|9|50| And Jesus said unto him, Forbid him not: for he that is not against us is for us.

Luk|9|51| And it came to pass, when the time was come that he should be received up, he stedfastly set his face to go to Jerusalem,

Luk|9|52| And sent messengers before his face: and they went, and entered into a village of the Samaritans, to make ready for him.

Luk|9|53| And they did not receive him, because his face was as though he would go to Jerusalem.

Luk|9|54| And when his disciples James and John saw this, they said, Lord, wilt thou that we command fire to come down from heaven, and consume them, even as Elias did?

Luk|9|55| But he turned, and rebuked them, and said, Ye know not what manner of spirit ye are of.

Luk|9|56| For the Son of man is not come to destroy men's lives, but to save them. And they went to another village.

Luk|9|57| And it came to pass, that, as they went in the way, a certain man said unto him, Lord, I will follow thee whithersoever thou goest.

Luk|9|58| And Jesus said unto him, Foxes have holes, and birds of the air have nests; but the Son of man hath not where to lay his head.

Luk|9|59| And he said unto another, Follow me. But he said, Lord, suffer me first to go and bury my father.

Luk|9|60| Jesus said unto him, Let the dead bury their dead: but go thou and preach the kingdom of God.

Luk|9|61| And another also said, Lord, I will follow thee; but let me first go bid them farewell, which are at home at my house.

Luk|9|62| And Jesus said unto him, No man, having put his hand to the plough, and looking back, is fit for the kingdom of God.

Luk|10|1| After these things the LORD appointed other seventy also, and sent them two and two before his face into every city and place, whither he himself would come.

Luk|10|2| Therefore said he unto them, The harvest truly is great, but the labourers are few: pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he would send forth labourers into his harvest.

Luk|10|3| Go your ways: behold, I send you forth as lambs among wolves.

Luk|10|4| Carry neither purse, nor scrip, nor shoes: and salute no man by the way.

Luk|10|5| And into whatsoever house ye enter, first say, Peace be to this house.

Luk|10|6| And if the son of peace be there, your peace shall rest upon it: if not, it shall turn to you again.

Luk|10|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.

Luk|10|8| And into whatsoever city ye enter, and they receive you, eat such things as are set before you:

Luk|10|9| And heal the sick that are therein, and say unto them, The kingdom of God is come nigh unto you.

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

Luk|10|11| Even the very dust of your city, which cleaveth on us, we do wipe off against you: notwithstanding be ye sure of this, that the kingdom of God is come nigh unto you.

Luk|10|12| But I say unto you, that it shall be more tolerable in that day for Sodom, than for that city.

Luk|10|13| Woe unto thee, Chorazin! woe unto thee, Bethsaida! for if the mighty works had been done in Tyre and Sidon, which have been done in you, they had a great while ago repented, sitting in sackcloth and ashes.

Luk|10|14| But it shall be more tolerable for Tyre and Sidon at the judgment, than for you.

Luk|10|15| And thou, Capernaum, which art exalted to heaven, shalt be thrust down to hell.

Luk|10|16| He that heareth you heareth me; and he that despiseth you despiseth me; and he that despiseth me despiseth him that sent me.

Luk|10|17| And the seventy returned again with joy, saying, Lord, even the devils are subject unto us through thy name.

Luk|10|18| And he said unto them, I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven.

Luk|10|19| Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.

Luk|10|20| Notwithstanding in this rejoice not, that the spirits are subject unto you; but rather rejoice, because your names are written in heaven.

Luk|10|21| In that hour Jesus rejoiced in spirit, and said, I thank thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them unto babes: even so, Father; for so it seemed good in thy sight.

Luk|10|22| All things are delivered to me of my Father: and no man knoweth who the Son is, but the Father; and who the Father is, but the Son, and he to whom the Son will reveal him.

Luk|10|23| And he turned him unto his disciples, and said privately, Blessed are the eyes which see the things that ye see:

Luk|10|24| For I tell you, that many prophets and kings have desired to see those things which ye see, and have not seen them; and to hear those things which ye hear, and have not heard them.

Luk|10|25| And, behold, a certain lawyer stood up, and tempted him, saying, Master, what shall I do to inherit eternal life?

Luk|10|26| He said unto him, What is written in the law? how readest thou?

Luk|10|27| And he answering said, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy strength, and with all thy mind; and thy neighbour as thyself.

Luk|10|28| And he said unto him, Thou hast answered right: this do, and thou shalt live.

Luk|10|29| But he, willing to justify himself, said unto Jesus, And who is my neighbour?

Luk|10|30| And Jesus answering said, A certain man went down from Jerusalem to Jericho, and fell among thieves, which stripped him of his raiment, and wounded him, and departed, leaving him half dead.

Luk|10|31| And by chance there came down a certain priest that way: and when he saw him, he passed by on the other side.

Luk|10|32| And likewise a Levite, when he was at the place, came and looked on him, and passed by on the other side.

Luk|10|33| But a certain Samaritan, as he journeyed, came where he was: and when he saw him, he had compassion on him,

Luk|10|34| And went to him, and bound up his wounds, pouring in oil and wine, and set him on his own beast, and brought him to an inn, and took care of him.

Luk|10|35| And on the morrow when he departed, he took out two pence, and gave them to the host, and said unto him, Take care of him; and whatsoever thou spendest more, when I come again, I will repay thee.

Luk|10|36| Which now of these three, thinkest thou, was neighbour unto him that fell among the thieves?

Luk|10|37| And he said, He that shewed mercy on him. Then said Jesus unto him, Go, and do thou likewise.

Luk|10|38| Now it came to pass, as they went, that he entered into a certain village: and a certain woman named Martha received him into her house.

Luk|10|39| And she had a sister called Mary, which also sat at Jesus' feet, and heard his word.

Luk|10|40| But Martha was cumbered about much serving, and came to him, and said, Lord, dost thou not care that my sister hath left me to serve alone?bid her therefore that she help me.

Luk|10|41| And Jesus answered and said unto her, Martha, Martha, thou art careful and troubled about many things:

Luk|10|42| But one thing is needful: and Mary hath chosen that good part, which shall not be taken away from her.

Luk|11|1| And it came to pass, that, as he was praying in a certain place, when he ceased, one of his disciples said unto him, Lord, teach us to pray, as John also taught his disciples.

Luk|11|2| And he said unto them, When ye pray, say, Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done, as in heaven, so in earth.

Luk|11|3| Give us day by day our daily bread.

Luk|11|4| And forgive us our sins; for we also forgive every one that is indebted to us. And lead us not into temptation; but deliver us from evil.

Luk|11|5| And he said unto them, Which of you shall have a friend, and shall go unto him at midnight, and say unto him, Friend, lend me three loaves;

Luk|11|6| For a friend of mine in his journey is come to me, and I have nothing to set before him?

Luk|11|7| And he from within shall answer and say, Trouble me not: the door is now shut, and my children are with me in bed; I cannot rise and give thee.

Luk|11|8| I say unto you, Though he will not rise and give him, because he is his friend, yet because of his importunity he will rise and give him as many as he needeth.

Luk|11|9| And I say unto you, Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you.

Luk|11|10| For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.

Luk|11|11| If a son shall ask bread of any of you that is a father, will he give him a stone? or if he ask a fish, will he for a fish give him a serpent?

Luk|11|12| Or if he shall ask an egg, will he offer him a scorpion?

Luk|11|13| If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children: how much more shall your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to them that ask him?

Luk|11|14| And he was casting out a devil, and it was dumb. And it came to pass, when the devil was gone out, the dumb spake; and the people wondered.

Luk|11|15| But some of them said, He casteth out devils through Beelzebub the chief of the devils.

Luk|11|16| And others, tempting him, sought of him a sign from heaven.

Luk|11|17| But he, knowing their thoughts, said unto them, Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and a house divided against a house falleth.

Luk|11|18| If Satan also be divided against himself, how shall his kingdom stand? because ye say that I cast out devils through Beelzebub.

Luk|11|19| And if I by Beelzebub cast out devils, by whom do your sons cast them out? therefore shall they be your judges.

Luk|11|20| But if I with the finger of God cast out devils, no doubt the kingdom of God is come upon you.

Luk|11|21| When a strong man armed keepeth his palace, his goods are in peace:

Luk|11|22| But when a stronger than he shall come upon him, and overcome him, he taketh from him all his armour wherein he trusted, and divideth his spoils.

Luk|11|23| He that is not with me is against me: and he that gathereth not with me scattereth.

Luk|11|24| When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walketh through dry places, seeking rest; and finding none, he saith, I will return unto my house whence I came out.

Luk|11|25| And when he cometh, he findeth it swept and garnished.

Luk|11|26| Then goeth he, and taketh to him seven other spirits more wicked than himself; and they enter in, and dwell there: and the last state of that man is worse than the first.

Luk|11|27| And it came to pass, as he spake these things, a certain woman of the company lifted up her voice, and said unto him, Blessed is the womb that bare thee, and the paps which thou hast sucked.

Luk|11|28| But he said, Yea rather, blessed are they that hear the word of God, and keep it.

Luk|11|29| And when the people were gathered thick together, he began to say, This is an evil generation: they seek a sign; and there shall no sign be given it, but the sign of Jonas the prophet.

Luk|11|30| For as Jonas was a sign unto the Ninevites, so shall also the Son of man be to this generation.

Luk|11|31| The queen of the south shall rise up in the judgment with the men of this generation, and condemn them: for she came from the utmost parts of the earth to hear the wisdom of Solomon; and, behold, a greater than Solomon is here.

Luk|11|32| The men of Nineve shall rise up in the judgment with this generation, and shall condemn it: for they repented at the preaching of Jonas; and, behold, a greater than Jonas is here.

Luk|11|33| No man, when he hath lighted a candle, putteth it in a secret place, neither under a bushel, but on a candlestick, that they which come in may see the light.

Luk|11|34| The light of the body is the eye: therefore when thine eye is single, thy whole body also is full of light; but when thine eye is evil, thy body also is full of darkness.

Luk|11|35| Take heed therefore that the light which is in thee be not darkness.

Luk|11|36| If thy whole body therefore be full of light, having no part dark, the whole shall be full of light, as when the bright shining of a candle doth give thee light.

Luk|11|37| And as he spake, a certain Pharisee besought him to dine with him: and he went in, and sat down to meat.

Luk|11|38| And when the Pharisee saw it, he marvelled that he had not first washed before dinner.

Luk|11|39| And the Lord said unto him, Now do ye Pharisees make clean the outside of the cup and the platter; but your inward part is full of ravening and wickedness.

Luk|11|40| Ye fools, did not he that made that which is without make that which is within also?

Luk|11|41| But rather give alms of such things as ye have; and, behold, all things are clean unto you.

Luk|11|42| But woe unto you, Pharisees! for ye tithe mint and rue and all manner of herbs, and pass over judgment and the love of God: these ought ye to have done, and not to leave the other undone.

Luk|11|43| Woe unto you, Pharisees! for ye love the uppermost seats in the synagogues, and greetings in the markets.

Luk|11|44| Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye are as graves which appear not, and the men that walk over them are not aware of them.

Luk|11|45| Then answered one of the lawyers, and said unto him, Master, thus saying thou reproachest us also.

Luk|11|46| And he said, Woe unto you also, ye lawyers! for ye lade men with burdens grievous to be borne, and ye yourselves touch not the burdens with one of your fingers.

Luk|11|47| Woe unto you! for ye build the sepulchres of the prophets, and your fathers killed them.

Luk|11|48| Truly ye bear witness that ye allow the deeds of your fathers: for they indeed killed them, and ye build their sepulchres.

Luk|11|49| Therefore also said the wisdom of God, I will send them prophets and apostles, and some of them they shall slay and persecute:

Luk|11|50| That the blood of all the prophets, which was shed from the foundation of the world, may be required of this generation;

Luk|11|51| From the blood of Abel unto the blood of Zacharias which perished between the altar and the temple: verily I say unto you, It shall be required of this generation.

Luk|11|52| Woe unto you, lawyers! for ye have taken away the key of knowledge: ye entered not in yourselves, and them that were entering in ye hindered.

Luk|11|53| And as he said these things unto them, the scribes and the Pharisees began to urge him vehemently, and to provoke him to speak of many things:

Luk|11|54| Laying wait for him, and seeking to catch something out of his mouth, that they might accuse him.

Luk|12|1| In the mean time, when there were gathered together an innumerable multitude of people, insomuch that they trode one upon another, he began to say unto his disciples first of all, Beware ye of the leaven of the Pharisees, which is hypocrisy.

Luk|12|2| For there is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed; neither hid, that shall not be known.

Luk|12|3| Therefore whatsoever ye have spoken in darkness shall be heard in the light; and that which ye have spoken in the ear in closets shall be proclaimed upon the housetops.

Luk|12|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.

Luk|12|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.

Luk|12|6| Are not five sparrows sold for two farthings, and not one of them is forgotten before God?

Luk|12|7| But even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear not therefore: ye are of more value than many sparrows.

Luk|12|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:

Luk|12|9| But he that denieth me before men shall be denied before the angels of God.

Luk|12|10| And whosoever shall speak a word against the Son of man, it shall be forgiven him: but unto him that blasphemeth against the Holy Ghost it shall not be forgiven.

Luk|12|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:

Luk|12|12| For the Holy Ghost shall teach you in the same hour what ye ought to say.

Luk|12|13| And one of the company said unto him, Master, speak to my brother, that he divide the inheritance with me.

Luk|12|14| And he said unto him, Man, who made me a judge or a divider over you?

Luk|12|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.

Luk|12|16| And he spake a parable unto them, saying, The ground of a certain rich man brought forth plentifully:

Luk|12|17| And he thought within himself, saying, What shall I do, because I have no room where to bestow my fruits?

Luk|12|18| And he said, This will I do: I will pull down my barns, and build greater; and there will I bestow all my fruits and my goods.

Luk|12|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.

Luk|12|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?

Luk|12|21| So is he that layeth up treasure for himself, and is not rich toward God.

Luk|12|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.

Luk|12|23| The life is more than meat, and the body is more than raiment.

Luk|12|24| Consider the ravens: for they neither sow nor reap; which neither have storehouse nor barn; and God feedeth them: how much more are ye better than the fowls?

Luk|12|25| And which of you with taking thought can add to his stature one cubit?

Luk|12|26| If ye then be not able to do that thing which is least, why take ye thought for the rest?

Luk|12|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.

Luk|12|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?

Luk|12|29| And seek not ye what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink, neither be ye of doubtful mind.

Luk|12|30| For all these things do the nations of the world seek after: and your Father knoweth that ye have need of these things.

Luk|12|31| But rather seek ye the kingdom of God; and all these things shall be added unto you.

Luk|12|32| Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father's good pleasure to give you the kingdom.

Luk|12|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.

Luk|12|34| For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.

Luk|12|35| Let your loins be girded about, and your lights burning;

Luk|12|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.

Luk|12|37| Blessed are those servants, whom the lord when he cometh 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.

Luk|12|38| And if he shall come in the second watch, or come in the third watch, and find them so, blessed are those servants.

Luk|12|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.

Luk|12|40| Be ye therefore ready also: for the Son of man cometh at an hour when ye think not.

Luk|12|41| Then Peter said unto him, Lord, speakest thou this parable unto us, or even to all?

Luk|12|42| And the Lord said, Who then is that faithful and wise steward, whom his lord shall make ruler over his household, to give them their portion of meat in due season?

Luk|12|43| Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he cometh shall find so doing.

Luk|12|44| Of a truth I say unto you, that he will make him ruler over all that he hath.

Luk|12|45| But and if that servant say in his heart, My lord delayeth his coming; and shall begin to beat the menservants and maidens, and to eat and drink, and to be drunken;

Luk|12|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.

Luk|12|47| And that servant, which knew his lord's will, and prepared not himself, neither did according to his will, shall be beaten with many stripes.

Luk|12|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.

Luk|12|49| I am come to send fire on the earth; and what will I, if it be already kindled?

Luk|12|50| But I have a baptism to be baptized with; and how am I straitened till it be accomplished!

Luk|12|51| Suppose ye that I am come to give peace on earth? I tell you, Nay; but rather division:

Luk|12|52| For from henceforth there shall be five in one house divided, three against two, and two against three.

Luk|12|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 in law.

Luk|12|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.

Luk|12|55| And when ye see the south wind blow, ye say, There will be heat; and it cometh to pass.

Luk|12|56| Ye hypocrites, ye can discern the face of the sky and of the earth; but how is it that ye do not discern this time?

Luk|12|57| Yea, and why even of yourselves judge ye not what is right?

Luk|12|58| When thou goest with thine adversary to the magistrate, as thou art in the way, give diligence that thou mayest be delivered from him; lest he hale thee to the judge, and the judge deliver thee to the officer, and the officer cast thee into prison.

Luk|12|59| I tell thee, thou shalt not depart thence, till thou hast paid the very last mite.

Luk|13|1| There were present at that season some that told him of the Galilaeans, whose blood Pilate had mingled with their sacrifices.

Luk|13|2| And Jesus answering said unto them, Suppose ye that these Galilaeans were sinners above all the Galilaeans, because they suffered such things?

Luk|13|3| I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish.

Luk|13|4| Or those eighteen, upon whom the tower in Siloam fell, and slew them, think ye that they were sinners above all men that dwelt in Jerusalem?

Luk|13|5| I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish.

Luk|13|6| He spake also this parable; A certain man had a fig tree planted in his vineyard; and he came and sought fruit thereon, and found none.

Luk|13|7| Then said he unto the dresser of his vineyard, Behold, these three years I come seeking fruit on this fig tree, and find none: cut it down; why cumbereth it the ground?

Luk|13|8| And he answering said unto him, Lord, let it alone this year also, till I shall dig about it, and dung it:

Luk|13|9| And if it bear fruit, well: and if not, then after that thou shalt cut it down.

Luk|13|10| And he was teaching in one of the synagogues on the sabbath.

Luk|13|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.

Luk|13|12| And when Jesus saw her, he called her to him, and said unto her, Woman, thou art loosed from thine infirmity.

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

Luk|13|14| And the ruler of the synagogue answered with indignation, because that Jesus had healed 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.

Luk|13|15| The Lord then answered him, and said, Thou hypocrite, doth not each one of you on the sabbath loose his ox or his ass from the stall, and lead him away to watering?

Luk|13|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?

Luk|13|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.

Luk|13|18| Then said he, Unto what is the kingdom of God like? and whereunto shall I resemble it?

Luk|13|19| It is like a grain of mustard 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.

Luk|13|20| And again he said, Whereunto shall I liken the kingdom of God?

Luk|13|21| It is like leaven, which a woman took and hid in three measures of meal, till the whole was leavened.

Luk|13|22| And he went through the cities and villages, teaching, and journeying toward Jerusalem.

Luk|13|23| Then said one unto him, Lord, are there few that be saved? And he said unto them,

Luk|13|24| Strive to enter in at the strait gate: for many, I say unto you, will seek to enter in, and shall not be able.

Luk|13|25| 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 ye are:

Luk|13|26| Then shall ye begin to say, We have eaten and drunk in thy presence, and thou hast taught in our streets.

Luk|13|27| But he shall say, I tell you, I know you not whence ye are; depart from me, all ye workers of iniquity.

Luk|13|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.

Luk|13|29| And they shall come from the east, and from the west, and from the north, and from the south, and shall sit down in the kingdom of God.

Luk|13|30| And, behold, there are last which shall be first, and there are first which shall be last.

Luk|13|31| The same day there came certain of the Pharisees, saying unto him, Get thee out, and depart hence: for Herod will kill thee.

Luk|13|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.

Luk|13|33| Nevertheless I must walk to day, and to morrow, and the day following: for it cannot be that a prophet perish out of Jerusalem.

Luk|13|34| O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, which killest the prophets, and stonest them that are sent unto thee; how often would I have gathered thy children together, as a hen doth gather her brood under her wings, and ye would not!

Luk|13|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.

Luk|14|1| 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.

Luk|14|2| And, behold, there was a certain man before him which had the dropsy.

Luk|14|3| And Jesus answering spake unto the lawyers and Pharisees, saying, Is it lawful to heal on the sabbath day?

Luk|14|4| And they held their peace. And he took him, and healed him, and let him go;

Luk|14|5| And answered them, saying, 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?

Luk|14|6| And they could not answer him again to these things.

Luk|14|7| And he put forth a parable to those which were bidden, when he marked how they chose out the chief rooms; saying unto them.

Luk|14|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;

Luk|14|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.

Luk|14|10| But when thou art bidden, go and sit down in the lowest room; that when he that bade thee cometh, he may say unto thee, Friend, go up higher: then shalt thou have worship in the presence of them that sit at meat with thee.

Luk|14|11| For whosoever exalteth himself shall be abased; and he that humbleth himself shall be exalted.

Luk|14|12| Then said he also to him that bade him, When thou makest a dinner or a supper, call not thy friends, nor thy brethren, neither thy kinsmen, nor thy rich neighbours; lest they also bid thee again, and a recompence be made thee.

Luk|14|13| But when thou makest a feast, call the poor, the maimed, the lame, the blind:

Luk|14|14| And thou shalt be blessed; for they cannot recompense thee: for thou shalt be recompensed at the resurrection of the just.

Luk|14|15| And when one of them that sat at meat with him heard these things, he said unto him, Blessed is he that shall eat bread in the kingdom of God.

Luk|14|16| Then said he unto him, A certain man made a great supper, and bade many:

Luk|14|17| And sent his servant at supper time to say to them that were bidden, Come; for all things are now ready.

Luk|14|18| And they all with one consent began to make excuse. The first said unto him, I have bought a piece of ground, and I must needs go and see it: I pray thee have me excused.

Luk|14|19| And another said, I have bought five yoke of oxen, and I go to prove them: I pray thee have me excused.

Luk|14|20| And another said, I have married a wife, and therefore I cannot come.

Luk|14|21| So that servant came, and shewed his lord these things. Then the master of the house being angry said to his servant, Go out quickly into the streets and lanes of the city, and bring in hither the poor, and the maimed, and the halt, and the blind.

Luk|14|22| And the servant said, Lord, it is done as thou hast commanded, and yet there is room.

Luk|14|23| And the lord said unto the servant, Go out into the highways and hedges, and compel them to come in, that my house may be filled.

Luk|14|24| For I say unto you, That none of those men which were bidden shall taste of my supper.

Luk|14|25| And there went great multitudes with him: and he turned, and said unto them,

Luk|14|26| If any man come to me, and hate not his father, and mother, and wife, and children, and brethren, and sisters, yea, and his own life also, he cannot be my disciple.

Luk|14|27| And whosoever doth not bear his cross, and come after me, cannot be my disciple.

Luk|14|28| For which of you, intending to build a tower, sitteth not down first, and counteth the cost, whether he have sufficient to finish it?

Luk|14|29| Lest haply, after he hath laid the foundation, and is not able to finish it, all that behold it begin to mock him,

Luk|14|30| Saying, This man began to build, and was not able to finish.

Luk|14|31| Or what king, going to make war against another king, sitteth not down first, and consulteth whether he be able with ten thousand to meet him that cometh against him with twenty thousand?

Luk|14|32| Or else, while the other is yet a great way off, he sendeth an ambassage, and desireth conditions of peace.

Luk|14|33| So likewise, whosoever he be of you that forsaketh not all that he hath, he cannot be my disciple.

Luk|14|34| Salt is good: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be seasoned?

Luk|14|35| It is neither fit for the land, nor yet for the dunghill; but men cast it out. He that hath ears to hear, let him hear.

Luk|15|1| Then drew near unto him all the publicans and sinners for to hear him.

Luk|15|2| And the Pharisees and scribes murmured, saying, This man receiveth sinners, and eateth with them.

Luk|15|3| And he spake this parable unto them, saying,

Luk|15|4| What man of you, having an hundred sheep, if he lose one of them, doth not leave the ninety and nine in the wilderness, and go after that which is lost, until he find it?

Luk|15|5| And when he hath found it, he layeth it on his shoulders, rejoicing.

Luk|15|6| And when he cometh home, he calleth together his friends and neighbours, saying unto them, Rejoice with me; for I have found my sheep which was lost.

Luk|15|7| I say unto you, that likewise joy shall be in heaven over one sinner that repenteth, more than over ninety and nine just persons, which need no repentance.

Luk|15|8| Either what woman having ten pieces of silver, if she lose one piece, doth not light a candle, and sweep the house, and seek diligently till she find it?

Luk|15|9| And when she hath found it, she calleth her friends and her neighbours together, saying, Rejoice with me; for I have found the piece which I had lost.

Luk|15|10| Likewise, I say unto you, there is joy in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner that repenteth.

Luk|15|11| And he said, A certain man had two sons:

Luk|15|12| And the younger of them said to his father, Father, give me the portion of goods that falleth to me. And he divided unto them his living.

Luk|15|13| And not many days after the younger son gathered all together, and took his journey into a far country, and there wasted his substance with riotous living.

Luk|15|14| And when he had spent all, there arose a mighty famine in that land; and he began to be in want.

Luk|15|15| And he went and joined himself to a citizen of that country; and he sent him into his fields to feed swine.

Luk|15|16| And he would fain have filled his belly with the husks that the swine did eat: and no man gave unto him.

Luk|15|17| And when he came to himself, he said, How many hired servants of my father's have bread enough and to spare, and I perish with hunger!

Luk|15|18| I will arise and go to my father, and will say unto him, Father, I have sinned against heaven, and before thee,

Luk|15|19| And am no more worthy to be called thy son: make me as one of thy hired servants.

Luk|15|20| And he arose, and came to his father. But when he was yet a great way off, his father saw him, and had compassion, and ran, and fell on his neck, and kissed him.

Luk|15|21| And the son said unto him, Father, I have sinned against heaven, and in thy sight, and am no more worthy to be called thy son.

Luk|15|22| But the father said to his servants, Bring forth the best robe, and put it on him; and put a ring on his hand, and shoes on his feet:

Luk|15|23| And bring hither the fatted calf, and kill it; and let us eat, and be merry:

Luk|15|24| For this my son was dead, and is alive again; he was lost, and is found. And they began to be merry.

Luk|15|25| Now his elder son was in the field: and as he came and drew nigh to the house, he heard musick and dancing.

Luk|15|26| And he called one of the servants, and asked what these things meant.

Luk|15|27| And he said unto him, Thy brother is come; and thy father hath killed the fatted calf, because he hath received him safe and sound.

Luk|15|28| And he was angry, and would not go in: therefore came his father out, and intreated him.

Luk|15|29| And he answering said to his father, Lo, these many years do I serve thee, neither transgressed I at any time thy commandment: and yet thou never gavest me a kid, that I might make merry with my friends:

Luk|15|30| But as soon as this thy son was come, which hath devoured thy living with harlots, thou hast killed for him the fatted calf.

Luk|15|31| And he said unto him, Son, thou art ever with me, and all that I have is thine.

Luk|15|32| It was meet that we should make merry, and be glad: for this thy brother was dead, and is alive again; and was lost, and is found.

Luk|16|1| And he said also unto his disciples, There was a certain rich man, which had a steward; and the same was accused unto him that he had wasted his goods.

Luk|16|2| And he called him, and said unto him, How is it that I hear this of thee? give an account of thy stewardship; for thou mayest be no longer steward.

Luk|16|3| Then the steward said within himself, What shall I do? for my lord taketh away from me the stewardship: I cannot dig; to beg I am ashamed.

Luk|16|4| I am resolved what to do, that, when I am put out of the stewardship, they may receive me into their houses.

Luk|16|5| So he called every one of his lord's debtors unto him, and said unto the first, How much owest thou unto my lord?

Luk|16|6| And he said, An hundred measures of oil. And he said unto him, Take thy bill, and sit down quickly, and write fifty.

Luk|16|7| Then said he to another, And how much owest thou? And he said, An hundred measures of wheat. And he said unto him, Take thy bill, and write fourscore.

Luk|16|8| And the lord commended the unjust steward, because he had done wisely: for the children of this world are in their generation wiser than the children of light.

Luk|16|9| And I say unto you, Make to yourselves friends of the mammon of unrighteousness; that, when ye fail, they may receive you into everlasting habitations.

Luk|16|10| He that is faithful in that which is least is faithful also in much: and he that is unjust in the least is unjust also in much.

Luk|16|11| If therefore ye have not been faithful in the unrighteous mammon, who will commit to your trust the true riches?

Luk|16|12| And if ye have not been faithful in that which is another man's, who shall give you that which is your own?

Luk|16|13| No servant can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.

Luk|16|14| And the Pharisees also, who were covetous, heard all these things: and they derided him.

Luk|16|15| And he said unto them, Ye are they which justify yourselves before men; but God knoweth your hearts: for that which is highly esteemed among men is abomination in the sight of God.

Luk|16|16| The law and the prophets were until John: since that time the kingdom of God is preached, and every man presseth into it.

Luk|16|17| And it is easier for heaven and earth to pass, than one tittle of the law to fail.

Luk|16|18| Whosoever putteth away his wife, and marrieth another, committeth adultery: and whosoever marrieth her that is put away from her husband committeth adultery.

Luk|16|19| There was a certain rich man, which was clothed in purple and fine linen, and fared sumptuously every day:

Luk|16|20| And there was a certain beggar named Lazarus, which was laid at his gate, full of sores,

Luk|16|21| And desiring to be fed with the crumbs which fell from the rich man's table: moreover the dogs came and licked his sores.

Luk|16|22| And it came to pass, that the beggar died, and was carried by the angels into Abraham's bosom: the rich man also died, and was buried;

Luk|16|23| And in hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments, and seeth Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom.

Luk|16|24| And he cried and said, Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus, that he may dip the tip of his finger in water, and cool my tongue; for I am tormented in this flame.

Luk|16|25| But Abraham said, Son, remember that thou in thy lifetime receivedst thy good things, and likewise Lazarus evil things: but now he is comforted, and thou art tormented.

Luk|16|26| And beside all this, between us and you there is a great gulf fixed: so that they which would pass from hence to you cannot; neither can they pass to us, that would come from thence.

Luk|16|27| Then he said, I pray thee therefore, father, that thou wouldest send him to my father's house:

Luk|16|28| For I have five brethren; that he may testify unto them, lest they also come into this place of torment.

Luk|16|29| Abraham saith unto him, They have Moses and the prophets; let them hear them.

Luk|16|30| And he said, Nay, father Abraham: but if one went unto them from the dead, they will repent.

Luk|16|31| And he said unto him, If they hear not Moses and the prophets, neither will they be persuaded, though one rose from the dead.

Luk|17|1| Then said he unto the disciples, It is impossible but that offences will come: but woe unto him, through whom they come!

Luk|17|2| It were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he cast into the sea, than that he should offend one of these little ones.

Luk|17|3| Take heed to yourselves: If thy brother trespass against thee, rebuke him; and if he repent, forgive him.

Luk|17|4| And if he trespass against thee seven times in a day, and seven times in a day turn again to thee, saying, I repent; thou shalt forgive him.

Luk|17|5| And the apostles said unto the Lord, Increase our faith.

Luk|17|6| And the Lord said, If ye had faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye might say unto this sycamine tree, Be thou plucked up by the root, and be thou planted in the sea; and it should obey you.

Luk|17|7| But which of you, having a servant plowing or feeding cattle, will say unto him by and by, when he is come from the field, Go and sit down to meat?

Luk|17|8| And will not rather say unto him, Make ready wherewith I may sup, and gird thyself, and serve me, till I have eaten and drunken; and afterward thou shalt eat and drink?

Luk|17|9| Doth he thank that servant because he did the things that were commanded him? I trow not.

Luk|17|10| 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.

Luk|17|11| And it came to pass, as he went to Jerusalem, that he passed through the midst of Samaria and Galilee.

Luk|17|12| And as he entered into a certain village, there met him ten men that were lepers, which stood afar off:

Luk|17|13| And they lifted up their voices, and said, Jesus, Master, have mercy on us.

Luk|17|14| And when he saw them, he said unto them, Go shew yourselves unto the priests. And it came to pass, that, as they went, they were cleansed.

Luk|17|15| And one of them, when he saw that he was healed, turned back, and with a loud voice glorified God,

Luk|17|16| And fell down on his face at his feet, giving him thanks: and he was a Samaritan.

Luk|17|17| And Jesus answering said, Were there not ten cleansed? but where are the nine?

Luk|17|18| There are not found that returned to give glory to God, save this stranger.

Luk|17|19| And he said unto him, Arise, go thy way: thy faith hath made thee whole.

Luk|17|20| And when he was demanded of the Pharisees, when the kingdom of God should come, he answered them and said, The kingdom of God cometh not with observation:

Luk|17|21| Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you.

Luk|17|22| 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 ye shall not see it.

Luk|17|23| And they shall say to you, See here; or, see there: go not after them, nor follow them.

Luk|17|24| For as the lightning, that lighteneth out of the one part under heaven, shineth unto the other part under heaven; so shall also the Son of man be in his day.

Luk|17|25| But first must he suffer many things, and be rejected of this generation.

Luk|17|26| And as it was in the days of Noe, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man.

Luk|17|27| They did eat, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, and the flood came, and destroyed them all.

Luk|17|28| Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded;

Luk|17|29| But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all.

Luk|17|30| Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed.

Luk|17|31| In that day, he which shall be upon the housetop, and his stuff in the house, let him not come down to take it away: and he that is in the field, let him likewise not return back.

Luk|17|32| Remember Lot's wife.

Luk|17|33| Whosoever shall seek to save his life shall lose it; and whosoever shall lose his life shall preserve it.

Luk|17|34| I tell you, in that night there shall be two men in one bed; the one shall be taken, and the other shall be left.

Luk|17|35| Two women shall be grinding together; the one shall be taken, and the other left.

Luk|17|36| Two men shall be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left.

Luk|17|37| And they answered and said unto him, Where, Lord? And he said unto them, Wheresoever the body is, thither will the eagles be gathered together.

Luk|18|1| And he spake a parable unto them to this end, that men ought always to pray, and not to faint;

Luk|18|2| Saying, There was in a city a judge, which feared not God, neither regarded man:

Luk|18|3| And there was a widow in that city; and she came unto him, saying, Avenge me of mine adversary.

Luk|18|4| And he would not for a while: but afterward he said within himself, Though I fear not God, nor regard man;

Luk|18|5| Yet because this widow troubleth me, I will avenge her, lest by her continual coming she weary me.

Luk|18|6| And the Lord said, Hear what the unjust judge saith.

Luk|18|7| And shall not God avenge his own elect, which cry day and night unto him, though he bear long with them?

Luk|18|8| I tell you that he will avenge them speedily. Nevertheless when the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth?

Luk|18|9| And he spake this parable unto certain which trusted in themselves that they were righteous, and despised others:

Luk|18|10| Two men went up into the temple to pray; the one a Pharisee, and the other a publican.

Luk|18|11| The Pharisee stood and prayed thus with himself, God, I thank thee, that I am not as other men are, extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even as this publican.

Luk|18|12| I fast twice in the week, I give tithes of all that I possess.

Luk|18|13| And the publican, standing afar off, would not lift up so much as his eyes unto heaven, but smote upon his breast, saying, God be merciful to me a sinner.

Luk|18|14| 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.

Luk|18|15| And they brought unto him also infants, that he would touch them: but when his disciples saw it, they rebuked them.

Luk|18|16| But Jesus called them unto him, and said, Suffer little children to come unto me, and forbid them not: for of such is the kingdom of God.

Luk|18|17| Verily I say unto you, Whosoever shall not receive the kingdom of God as a little child shall in no wise enter therein.

Luk|18|18| And a certain ruler asked him, saying, Good Master, what shall I do to inherit eternal life?

Luk|18|19| And Jesus said unto him, Why callest thou me good? none is good, save one, that is, God.

Luk|18|20| Thou knowest the commandments, Do not commit adultery, Do not kill, Do not steal, Do not bear false witness, Honour thy father and thy mother.

Luk|18|21| And he said, All these have I kept from my youth up.

Luk|18|22| Now when Jesus heard these things, he said unto him, Yet lackest thou one thing: sell all that thou hast, and distribute unto the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come, follow me.

Luk|18|23| And when he heard this, he was very sorrowful: for he was very rich.

Luk|18|24| And when Jesus saw that he was very sorrowful, he said, How hardly shall they that have riches enter into the kingdom of God!

Luk|18|25| For it is easier for a camel to go through a needle's eye, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God.

Luk|18|26| And they that heard it said, Who then can be saved?

Luk|18|27| And he said, The things which are impossible with men are possible with God.

Luk|18|28| Then Peter said, Lo, we have left all, and followed thee.

Luk|18|29| And he said unto them, Verily I say unto you, There is no man that hath left house, or parents, or brethren, or wife, or children, for the kingdom of God's sake,

Luk|18|30| Who shall not receive manifold more in this present time, and in the world to come life everlasting.

Luk|18|31| Then he took unto him the twelve, and said unto them, Behold, we go up to Jerusalem, and all things that are written by the prophets concerning the Son of man shall be accomplished.

Luk|18|32| For he shall be delivered unto the Gentiles, and shall be mocked, and spitefully entreated, and spitted on:

Luk|18|33| And they shall scourge him, and put him to death: and the third day he shall rise again.

Luk|18|34| And they understood none of these things: and this saying was hid from them, neither knew they the things which were spoken.

Luk|18|35| And it came to pass, that as he was come nigh unto Jericho, a certain blind man sat by the way side begging:

Luk|18|36| And hearing the multitude pass by, he asked what it meant.

Luk|18|37| And they told him, that Jesus of Nazareth passeth by.

Luk|18|38| And he cried, saying, Jesus, thou son of David, have mercy on me.

Luk|18|39| And they which went before rebuked him, that he should hold his peace: but he cried so much the more, Thou son of David, have mercy on me.

Luk|18|40| And Jesus stood, and commanded him to be brought unto him: and when he was come near, he asked him,

Luk|18|41| Saying, What wilt thou that I shall do unto thee? And he said, Lord, that I may receive my sight.

Luk|18|42| And Jesus said unto him, Receive thy sight: thy faith hath saved thee.

Luk|18|43| And immediately he received his sight, and followed him, glorifying God: and all the people, when they saw it, gave praise unto God.

Luk|19|1| And Jesus entered and passed through Jericho.

Luk|19|2| And, behold, there was a man named Zacchaeus, which was the chief among the publicans, and he was rich.

Luk|19|3| And he sought to see Jesus who he was; and could not for the press, because he was little of stature.

Luk|19|4| And he ran before, and climbed up into a sycomore tree to see him: for he was to pass that way.

Luk|19|5| And when Jesus came to the place, he looked up, and saw him, and said unto him, Zacchaeus, make haste, and come down; for to day I must abide at thy house.

Luk|19|6| And he made haste, and came down, and received him joyfully.

Luk|19|7| And when they saw it, they all murmured, saying, That he was gone to be guest with a man that is a sinner.

Luk|19|8| And Zacchaeus stood, and said unto the Lord: Behold, Lord, the half of my goods I give to the poor; and if I have taken any thing from any man by false accusation, I restore him fourfold.

Luk|19|9| And Jesus said unto him, This day is salvation come to this house, forsomuch as he also is a son of Abraham.

Luk|19|10| For the Son of man is come to seek and to save that which was lost.

Luk|19|11| And as they heard these things, he added and spake a parable, because he was nigh to Jerusalem, and because they thought that the kingdom of God should immediately appear.

Luk|19|12| He said therefore, A certain nobleman went into a far country to receive for himself a kingdom, and to return.

Luk|19|13| And he called his ten servants, and delivered them ten pounds, and said unto them, Occupy till I come.

Luk|19|14| But his citizens hated him, and sent a message after him, saying, We will not have this man to reign over us.

Luk|19|15| And it came to pass, that when he was returned, having received the kingdom, then he commanded these servants to be called unto him, to whom he had given the money, that he might know how much every man had gained by trading.

Luk|19|16| Then came the first, saying, Lord, thy pound hath gained ten pounds.

Luk|19|17| And he said unto him, Well, thou good servant: because thou hast been faithful in a very little, have thou authority over ten cities.

Luk|19|18| And the second came, saying, Lord, thy pound hath gained five pounds.

Luk|19|19| And he said likewise to him, Be thou also over five cities.

Luk|19|20| And another came, saying, Lord, behold, here is thy pound, which I have kept laid up in a napkin:

Luk|19|21| For I feared thee, because thou art an austere man: thou takest up that thou layedst not down, and reapest that thou didst not sow.

Luk|19|22| And he saith unto him, Out of thine own mouth will I judge thee, thou wicked servant. Thou knewest that I was an austere man, taking up that I laid not down, and reaping that I did not sow:

Luk|19|23| Wherefore then gavest not thou my money into the bank, that at my coming I might have required mine own with usury?

Luk|19|24| And he said unto them that stood by, Take from him the pound, and give it to him that hath ten pounds.

Luk|19|25| (And they said unto him, Lord, he hath ten pounds.)

Luk|19|26| For I say unto you, That unto every one which hath shall be given; and from him that hath not, even that he hath shall be taken away from him.

Luk|19|27| But those mine enemies, which would not that I should reign over them, bring hither, and slay them before me.

Luk|19|28| And when he had thus spoken, he went before, ascending up to Jerusalem.

Luk|19|29| And it came to pass, when he was come nigh to Bethphage and Bethany, at the mount called the mount of Olives, he sent two of his disciples,

Luk|19|30| Saying, Go ye into the village over against you; in the which at your entering ye shall find a colt tied, whereon yet never man sat: loose him, and bring him hither.

Luk|19|31| And if any man ask you, Why do ye loose him? thus shall ye say unto him, Because the Lord hath need of him.

Luk|19|32| And they that were sent went their way, and found even as he had said unto them.

Luk|19|33| And as they were loosing the colt, the owners thereof said unto them, Why loose ye the colt?

Luk|19|34| And they said, The Lord hath need of him.

Luk|19|35| And they brought him to Jesus: and they cast their garments upon the colt, and they set Jesus thereon.

Luk|19|36| And as he went, they spread their clothes in the way.

Luk|19|37| And when he was come nigh, even now at the descent of the mount of Olives, the whole multitude of the disciples began to rejoice and praise God with a loud voice for all the mighty works that they had seen;

Luk|19|38| Saying, Blessed be the King that cometh in the name of the Lord: peace in heaven, and glory in the highest.

Luk|19|39| And some of the Pharisees from among the multitude said unto him, Master, rebuke thy disciples.

Luk|19|40| And he answered and said unto them, I tell you that, if these should hold their peace, the stones would immediately cry out.

Luk|19|41| And when he was come near, he beheld the city, and wept over it,

Luk|19|42| Saying, If thou hadst known, even thou, at least in this thy day, the things which belong unto thy peace! but now they are hid from thine eyes.

Luk|19|43| For the days shall come upon thee, that thine enemies shall cast a trench about thee, and compass thee round, and keep thee in on every side,

Luk|19|44| And shall lay thee even with the ground, and thy children within thee; and they shall not leave in thee one stone upon another; because thou knewest not the time of thy visitation.

Luk|19|45| And he went into the temple, and began to cast out them that sold therein, and them that bought;

Luk|19|46| Saying unto them, It is written, My house is the house of prayer: but ye have made it a den of thieves.

Luk|19|47| And he taught daily in the temple. But the chief priests and the scribes and the chief of the people sought to destroy him,

Luk|19|48| And could not find what they might do: for all the people were very attentive to hear him.

Luk|20|1| And it came to pass, that on one of those days, as he taught the people in the temple, and preached the gospel, the chief priests and the scribes came upon him with the elders,

Luk|20|2| And spake unto him, saying, Tell us, by what authority doest thou these things? or who is he that gave thee this authority?

Luk|20|3| And he answered and said unto them, I will also ask you one thing; and answer me:

Luk|20|4| The baptism of John, was it from heaven, or of men?

Luk|20|5| And they reasoned with themselves, saying, If we shall say, From heaven; he will say, Why then believed ye him not?

Luk|20|6| But and if we say, Of men; all the people will stone us: for they be persuaded that John was a prophet.

Luk|20|7| And they answered, that they could not tell whence it was.

Luk|20|8| And Jesus said unto them, Neither tell I you by what authority I do these things.

Luk|20|9| Then began he to speak to the people this parable; A certain man planted a vineyard, and let it forth to husbandmen, and went into a far country for a long time.

Luk|20|10| And at the season he sent a servant to the husbandmen, that they should give him of the fruit of the vineyard: but the husbandmen beat him, and sent him away empty.

Luk|20|11| And again he sent another servant: and they beat him also, and entreated him shamefully, and sent him away empty.

Luk|20|12| And again he sent a third: and they wounded him also, and cast him out.

Luk|20|13| Then said the lord of the vineyard, What shall I do? I will send my beloved son: it may be they will reverence him when they see him.

Luk|20|14| But when the husbandmen saw him, they reasoned among themselves, saying, This is the heir: come, let us kill him, that the inheritance may be ours.

Luk|20|15| So they cast him out of the vineyard, and killed him. What therefore shall the lord of the vineyard do unto them?

Luk|20|16| He shall come and destroy these husbandmen, and shall give the vineyard to others. And when they heard it, they said, God forbid.

Luk|20|17| And he beheld them, and said, What is this then that is written, The stone which the builders rejected, the same is become the head of the corner?

Luk|20|18| Whosoever shall fall upon that stone shall be broken; but on whomsoever it shall fall, it will grind him to powder.

Luk|20|19| And the chief priests and the scribes the same hour sought to lay hands on him; and they feared the people: for they perceived that he had spoken this parable against them.

Luk|20|20| And they watched him, and sent forth spies, which should feign themselves just men, that they might take hold of his words, that so they might deliver him unto the power and authority of the governor.

Luk|20|21| And they asked him, saying, Master, we know that thou sayest and teachest rightly, neither acceptest thou the person of any, but teachest the way of God truly:

Luk|20|22| Is it lawful for us to give tribute unto Caesar, or no?

Luk|20|23| But he perceived their craftiness, and said unto them, Why tempt ye me?

Luk|20|24| Shew me a penny. Whose image and superscription hath it? They answered and said, Caesar's.

Luk|20|25| And he said unto them, Render therefore unto Caesar the things which be Caesar's, and unto God the things which be God's.

Luk|20|26| And they could not take hold of his words before the people: and they marvelled at his answer, and held their peace.

Luk|20|27| Then came to him certain of the Sadducees, which deny that there is any resurrection; and they asked him,

Luk|20|28| Saying, Master, Moses wrote unto us, If any man's brother die, having a wife, and he die without children, that his brother should take his wife, and raise up seed unto his brother.

Luk|20|29| There were therefore seven brethren: and the first took a wife, and died without children.

Luk|20|30| And the second took her to wife, and he died childless.

Luk|20|31| And the third took her; and in like manner the seven also: and they left no children, and died.

Luk|20|32| Last of all the woman died also.

Luk|20|33| Therefore in the resurrection whose wife of them is she? for seven had her to wife.

Luk|20|34| And Jesus answering said unto them, The children of this world marry, and are given in marriage:

Luk|20|35| But they which shall be accounted worthy to obtain that world, and the resurrection from the dead, neither marry, nor are given in marriage:

Luk|20|36| Neither can they die any more: for they are equal unto the angels; and are the children of God, being the children of the resurrection.

Luk|20|37| Now that the dead are raised, even Moses shewed at the bush, when he calleth the Lord the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob.

Luk|20|38| For he is not a God of the dead, but of the living: for all live unto him.

Luk|20|39| Then certain of the scribes answering said, Master, thou hast well said.

Luk|20|40| And after that they durst not ask him any question at all.

Luk|20|41| And he said unto them, How say they that Christ is David's son?

Luk|20|42| And David himself saith in the book of Psalms, The LORD said unto my Lord, Sit thou on my right hand,

Luk|20|43| Till I make thine enemies thy footstool.

Luk|20|44| David therefore calleth him Lord, how is he then his son?

Luk|20|45| Then in the audience of all the people he said unto his disciples,

Luk|20|46| Beware of the scribes, which desire to walk in long robes, and love greetings in the markets, and the highest seats in the synagogues, and the chief rooms at feasts;

Luk|20|47| Which devour widows' houses, and for a shew make long prayers: the same shall receive greater damnation.

Luk|21|1| And he looked up, and saw the rich men casting their gifts into the treasury.

Luk|21|2| And he saw also a certain poor widow casting in thither two mites.

Luk|21|3| And he said, Of a truth I say unto you, that this poor widow hath cast in more than they all:

Luk|21|4| For all these have of their abundance cast in unto the offerings of God: but she of her penury hath cast in all the living that she had.

Luk|21|5| And as some spake of the temple, how it was adorned with goodly stones and gifts, he said,

Luk|21|6| As for these things which ye behold, the days will come, in the which there shall not be left one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down.

Luk|21|7| And they asked him, saying, Master, but when shall these things be?and what sign will there be when these things shall come to pass?

Luk|21|8| And he said, Take heed that ye be not deceived: for many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and the time draweth near: go ye not therefore after them.

Luk|21|9| But when ye shall hear of wars and commotions, be not terrified: for these things must first come to pass; but the end is not by and by.

Luk|21|10| Then said he unto them, Nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom:

Luk|21|11| And great earthquakes shall be in divers places, and famines, and pestilences; and fearful sights and great signs shall there be from heaven.

Luk|21|12| But before all these, they shall lay their hands on you, and persecute you, delivering you up to the synagogues, and into prisons, being brought before kings and rulers for my name's sake.

Luk|21|13| And it shall turn to you for a testimony.

Luk|21|14| Settle it therefore in your hearts, not to meditate before what ye shall answer:

Luk|21|15| For I will give you a mouth and wisdom, which all your adversaries shall not be able to gainsay nor resist.

Luk|21|16| And ye shall be betrayed both by parents, and brethren, and kinsfolks, and friends; and some of you shall they cause to be put to death.

Luk|21|17| And ye shall be hated of all men for my name's sake.

Luk|21|18| But there shall not an hair of your head perish.

Luk|21|19| In your patience possess ye your souls.

Luk|21|20| And when ye shall see Jerusalem compassed with armies, then know that the desolation thereof is nigh.

Luk|21|21| Then let them which are in Judaea flee to the mountains; and let them which are in the midst of it depart out; and let not them that are in the countries enter thereinto.

Luk|21|22| For these be the days of vengeance, that all things which are written may be fulfilled.

Luk|21|23| But woe unto them that are with child, and to them that give suck, in those days! for there shall be great distress in the land, and wrath upon this people.

Luk|21|24| And they shall fall by the edge of the sword, and shall be led away captive into all nations: and Jerusalem shall be trodden down of the Gentiles, until the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled.

Luk|21|25| And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring;

Luk|21|26| Men's hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken.

Luk|21|27| And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory.

Luk|21|28| And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.

Luk|21|29| And he spake to them a parable; Behold the fig tree, and all the trees;

Luk|21|30| When they now shoot forth, ye see and know of your own selves that summer is now nigh at hand.

Luk|21|31| So likewise ye, when ye see these things come to pass, know ye that the kingdom of God is nigh at hand.

Luk|21|32| Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass away, till all be fulfilled.

Luk|21|33| Heaven and earth shall pass away: but my words shall not pass away.

Luk|21|34| And take heed to yourselves, lest at any time your hearts be overcharged with surfeiting, and drunkenness, and cares of this life, and so that day come upon you unawares.

Luk|21|35| For as a snare shall it come on all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth.

Luk|21|36| Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.

Luk|21|37| And in the day time he was teaching in the temple; and at night he went out, and abode in the mount that is called the mount of Olives.

Luk|21|38| And all the people came early in the morning to him in the temple, for to hear him.

Luk|22|1| Now the feast of unleavened bread drew nigh, which is called the Passover.

Luk|22|2| And the chief priests and scribes sought how they might kill him; for they feared the people.

Luk|22|3| Then entered Satan into Judas surnamed Iscariot, being of the number of the twelve.

Luk|22|4| And he went his way, and communed with the chief priests and captains, how he might betray him unto them.

Luk|22|5| And they were glad, and covenanted to give him money.

Luk|22|6| And he promised, and sought opportunity to betray him unto them in the absence of the multitude.

Luk|22|7| Then came the day of unleavened bread, when the passover must be killed.

Luk|22|8| And he sent Peter and John, saying, Go and prepare us the passover, that we may eat.

Luk|22|9| And they said unto him, Where wilt thou that we prepare?

Luk|22|10| And he said unto them, Behold, when ye are entered into the city, there shall a man meet you, bearing a pitcher of water; follow him into the house where he entereth in.

Luk|22|11| And ye shall say unto the goodman of the house, The Master saith unto thee, Where is the guestchamber, where I shall eat the passover with my disciples?

Luk|22|12| And he shall shew you a large upper room furnished: there make ready.

Luk|22|13| And they went, and found as he had said unto them: and they made ready the passover.

Luk|22|14| And when the hour was come, he sat down, and the twelve apostles with him.

Luk|22|15| And he said unto them, With desire I have desired to eat this passover with you before I suffer:

Luk|22|16| For I say unto you, I will not any more eat thereof, until it be fulfilled in the kingdom of God.

Luk|22|17| And he took the cup, and gave thanks, and said, Take this, and divide it among yourselves:

Luk|22|18| For I say unto you, I will not drink of the fruit of the vine, until the kingdom of God shall come.

Luk|22|19| And he took bread, and gave thanks, and brake it, and gave unto them, saying, This is my body which is given for you: this do in remembrance of me.

Luk|22|20| Likewise also the cup after supper, saying, This cup is the new testament in my blood, which is shed for you.

Luk|22|21| But, behold, the hand of him that betrayeth me is with me on the table.

Luk|22|22| And truly the Son of man goeth, as it was determined: but woe unto that man by whom he is betrayed!

Luk|22|23| And they began to enquire among themselves, which of them it was that should do this thing.

Luk|22|24| And there was also a strife among them, which of them should be accounted the greatest.

Luk|22|25| And he said unto them, The kings of the Gentiles exercise lordship over them; and they that exercise authority upon them are called benefactors.

Luk|22|26| But ye shall not be so: but he that is greatest among you, let him be as the younger; and he that is chief, as he that doth serve.

Luk|22|27| For whether is greater, he that sitteth at meat, or he that serveth?is not he that sitteth at meat? but I am among you as he that serveth.

Luk|22|28| Ye are they which have continued with me in my temptations.

Luk|22|29| And I appoint unto you a kingdom, as my Father hath appointed unto me;

Luk|22|30| That ye may eat and drink at my table in my kingdom, and sit on thrones judging the twelve tribes of Israel.

Luk|22|31| And the Lord said, Simon, Simon, behold, Satan hath desired to have you, that he may sift you as wheat:

Luk|22|32| But I have prayed for thee, that thy faith fail not: and when thou art converted, strengthen thy brethren.

Luk|22|33| And he said unto him, Lord, I am ready to go with thee, both into prison, and to death.

Luk|22|34| And he said, I tell thee, Peter, the cock shall not crow this day, before that thou shalt thrice deny that thou knowest me.

Luk|22|35| And he said unto them, When I sent you without purse, and scrip, and shoes, lacked ye any thing? And they said, Nothing.

Luk|22|36| Then said he unto them, But now, he that hath a purse, let him take it, and likewise his scrip: and he that hath no sword, let him sell his garment, and buy one.

Luk|22|37| For I say unto you, that this that is written must yet be accomplished in me, And he was reckoned among the transgressors: for the things concerning me have an end.

Luk|22|38| And they said, Lord, behold, here are two swords. And he said unto them, It is enough.

Luk|22|39| And he came out, and went, as he was wont, to the mount of Olives; and his disciples also followed him.

Luk|22|40| And when he was at the place, he said unto them, Pray that ye enter not into temptation.

Luk|22|41| And he was withdrawn from them about a stone's cast, and kneeled down, and prayed,

Luk|22|42| Saying, Father, if thou be willing, remove this cup from me: nevertheless not my will, but thine, be done.

Luk|22|43| And there appeared an angel unto him from heaven, strengthening him.

Luk|22|44| And being in an agony he prayed more earnestly: and his sweat was as it were great drops of blood falling down to the ground.

Luk|22|45| And when he rose up from prayer, and was come to his disciples, he found them sleeping for sorrow,

Luk|22|46| And said unto them, Why sleep ye? rise and pray, lest ye enter into temptation.

Luk|22|47| And while he yet spake, behold a multitude, and he that was called Judas, one of the twelve, went before them, and drew near unto Jesus to kiss him.

Luk|22|48| But Jesus said unto him, Judas, betrayest thou the Son of man with a kiss?

Luk|22|49| When they which were about him saw what would follow, they said unto him, Lord, shall we smite with the sword?

Luk|22|50| And one of them smote the servant of the high priest, and cut off his right ear.

Luk|22|51| And Jesus answered and said, Suffer ye thus far. And he touched his ear, and healed him.

Luk|22|52| Then Jesus said unto the chief priests, and captains of the temple, and the elders, which were come to him, Be ye come out, as against a thief, with swords and staves?

Luk|22|53| When I was daily with you in the temple, ye stretched forth no hands against me: but this is your hour, and the power of darkness.

Luk|22|54| Then took they him, and led him, and brought him into the high priest's house. And Peter followed afar off.

Luk|22|55| And when they had kindled a fire in the midst of the hall, and were set down together, Peter sat down among them.

Luk|22|56| But a certain maid beheld him as he sat by the fire, and earnestly looked upon him, and said, This man was also with him.

Luk|22|57| And he denied him, saying, Woman, I know him not.

Luk|22|58| And after a little while another saw him, and said, Thou art also of them. And Peter said, Man, I am not.

Luk|22|59| And about the space of one hour after another confidently affirmed, saying, Of a truth this fellow also was with him: for he is a Galilaean.

Luk|22|60| And Peter said, Man, I know not what thou sayest. And immediately, while he yet spake, the cock crew.

Luk|22|61| And the Lord turned, and looked upon Peter. And Peter remembered the word of the Lord, how he had said unto him, Before the cock crow, thou shalt deny me thrice.

Luk|22|62| And Peter went out, and wept bitterly.

Luk|22|63| And the men that held Jesus mocked him, and smote him.

Luk|22|64| And when they had blindfolded him, they struck him on the face, and asked him, saying, Prophesy, who is it that smote thee?

Luk|22|65| And many other things blasphemously spake they against him.

Luk|22|66| And as soon as it was day, the elders of the people and the chief priests and the scribes came together, and led him into their council, saying,

Luk|22|67| Art thou the Christ? tell us. And he said unto them, If I tell you, ye will not believe:

Luk|22|68| And if I also ask you, ye will not answer me, nor let me go.

Luk|22|69| Hereafter shall the Son of man sit on the right hand of the power of God.

Luk|22|70| Then said they all, Art thou then the Son of God? And he said unto them, Ye say that I am.

Luk|22|71| And they said, What need we any further witness? for we ourselves have heard of his own mouth.

Luk|23|1| And the whole multitude of them arose, and led him unto Pilate.

Luk|23|2| And they began to accuse him, saying, We found this fellow perverting the nation, and forbidding to give tribute to Caesar, saying that he himself is Christ a King.

Luk|23|3| And Pilate asked him, saying, Art thou the King of the Jews? And he answered him and said, Thou sayest it.

Luk|23|4| Then said Pilate to the chief priests and to the people, I find no fault in this man.

Luk|23|5| And they were the more fierce, saying, He stirreth up the people, teaching throughout all Jewry, beginning from Galilee to this place.

Luk|23|6| When Pilate heard of Galilee, he asked whether the man were a Galilaean.

Luk|23|7| And as soon as he knew that he belonged unto Herod's jurisdiction, he sent him to Herod, who himself also was at Jerusalem at that time.

Luk|23|8| And when Herod saw Jesus, he was exceeding glad: for he was desirous to see him of a long season, because he had heard many things of him; and he hoped to have seen some miracle done by him.

Luk|23|9| Then he questioned with him in many words; but he answered him nothing.

Luk|23|10| And the chief priests and scribes stood and vehemently accused him.

Luk|23|11| And Herod with his men of war set him at nought, and mocked him, and arrayed him in a gorgeous robe, and sent him again to Pilate.

Luk|23|12| And the same day Pilate and Herod were made friends together: for before they were at enmity between themselves.

Luk|23|13| And Pilate, when he had called together the chief priests and the rulers and the people,

Luk|23|14| Said unto them, Ye have brought this man unto me, as one that perverteth the people: and, behold, I, having examined him before you, have found no fault in this man touching those things whereof ye accuse him:

Luk|23|15| No, nor yet Herod: for I sent you to him; and, lo, nothing worthy of death is done unto him.

Luk|23|16| I will therefore chastise him, and release him.

Luk|23|17| (For of necessity he must release one unto them at the feast.)

Luk|23|18| And they cried out all at once, saying, Away with this man, and release unto us Barabbas:

Luk|23|19| (Who for a certain sedition made in the city, and for murder, was cast into prison.)

Luk|23|20| Pilate therefore, willing to release Jesus, spake again to them.

Luk|23|21| But they cried, saying, Crucify him, crucify him.

Luk|23|22| And he said unto them the third time, Why, what evil hath he done? I have found no cause of death in him: I will therefore chastise him, and let him go.

Luk|23|23| And they were instant with loud voices, requiring that he might be crucified. And the voices of them and of the chief priests prevailed.

Luk|23|24| And Pilate gave sentence that it should be as they required.

Luk|23|25| And he released unto them him that for sedition and murder was cast into prison, whom they had desired; but he delivered Jesus to their will.

Luk|23|26| And as they led him away, they laid hold upon one Simon, a Cyrenian, coming out of the country, and on him they laid the cross, that he might bear it after Jesus.

Luk|23|27| And there followed him a great company of people, and of women, which also bewailed and lamented him.

Luk|23|28| But Jesus turning unto them said, Daughters of Jerusalem, weep not for me, but weep for yourselves, and for your children.

Luk|23|29| For, behold, the days are coming, in the which they shall say, Blessed are the barren, and the wombs that never bare, and the paps which never gave suck.

Luk|23|30| Then shall they begin to say to the mountains, Fall on us; and to the hills, Cover us.

Luk|23|31| For if they do these things in a green tree, what shall be done in the dry?

Luk|23|32| And there were also two other, malefactors, led with him to be put to death.

Luk|23|33| And when they were come to the place, which is called Calvary, there they crucified him, and the malefactors, one on the right hand, and the other on the left.

Luk|23|34| Then said Jesus, Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do. And they parted his raiment, and cast lots.

Luk|23|35| And the people stood beholding. And the rulers also with them derided him, saying, He saved others; let him save himself, if he be Christ, the chosen of God.

Luk|23|36| And the soldiers also mocked him, coming to him, and offering him vinegar,

Luk|23|37| And saying, If thou be the king of the Jews, save thyself.

Luk|23|38| And a superscription also was written over him in letters of Greek, and Latin, and Hebrew, THIS IS THE KING OF THE JEWS.

Luk|23|39| And one of the malefactors which were hanged railed on him, saying, If thou be Christ, save thyself and us.

Luk|23|40| But the other answering rebuked him, saying, Dost not thou fear God, seeing thou art in the same condemnation?

Luk|23|41| And we indeed justly; for we receive the due reward of our deeds: but this man hath done nothing amiss.

Luk|23|42| And he said unto Jesus, Lord, remember me when thou comest into thy kingdom.

Luk|23|43| And Jesus said unto him, Verily I say unto thee, To day shalt thou be with me in paradise.

Luk|23|44| And it was about the sixth hour, and there was a darkness over all the earth until the ninth hour.

Luk|23|45| And the sun was darkened, and the veil of the temple was rent in the midst.

Luk|23|46| And when Jesus had cried with a loud voice, he said, Father, into thy hands I commend my spirit: and having said thus, he gave up the ghost.

Luk|23|47| Now when the centurion saw what was done, he glorified God, saying, Certainly this was a righteous man.

Luk|23|48| And all the people that came together to that sight, beholding the things which were done, smote their breasts, and returned.

Luk|23|49| And all his acquaintance, and the women that followed him from Galilee, stood afar off, beholding these things.

Luk|23|50| And, behold, there was a man named Joseph, a counsellor; and he was a good man, and a just:

Luk|23|51| (The same had not consented to the counsel and deed of them;) he was of Arimathaea, a city of the Jews: who also himself waited for the kingdom of God.

Luk|23|52| This man went unto Pilate, and begged the body of Jesus.

Luk|23|53| And he took it down, and wrapped it in linen, and laid it in a sepulchre that was hewn in stone, wherein never man before was laid.

Luk|23|54| And that day was the preparation, and the sabbath drew on.

Luk|23|55| And the women also, which came with him from Galilee, followed after, and beheld the sepulchre, and how his body was laid.

Luk|23|56| And they returned, and prepared spices and ointments; and rested the sabbath day according to the commandment.

Luk|24|1| Now upon the first day of the week, very early in the morning, they came unto the sepulchre, bringing the spices which they had prepared, and certain others with them.

Luk|24|2| And they found the stone rolled away from the sepulchre.

Luk|24|3| And they entered in, and found not the body of the Lord Jesus.

Luk|24|4| And it came to pass, as they were much perplexed thereabout, behold, two men stood by them in shining garments:

Luk|24|5| And as they were afraid, and bowed down their faces to the earth, they said unto them, Why seek ye the living among the dead?

Luk|24|6| He is not here, but is risen: remember how he spake unto you when he was yet in Galilee,

Luk|24|7| Saying, The Son of man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men, and be crucified, and the third day rise again.

Luk|24|8| And they remembered his words,

Luk|24|9| And returned from the sepulchre, and told all these things unto the eleven, and to all the rest.

Luk|24|10| It was Mary Magdalene and Joanna, and Mary the mother of James, and other women that were with them, which told these things unto the apostles.

Luk|24|11| And their words seemed to them as idle tales, and they believed them not.

Luk|24|12| Then arose Peter, and ran unto the sepulchre; and stooping down, he beheld the linen clothes laid by themselves, and departed, wondering in himself at that which was come to pass.

Luk|24|13| And, behold, two of them went that same day to a village called Emmaus, which was from Jerusalem about threescore furlongs.

Luk|24|14| And they talked together of all these things which had happened.

Luk|24|15| And it came to pass, that, while they communed together and reasoned, Jesus himself drew near, and went with them.

Luk|24|16| But their eyes were holden that they should not know him.

Luk|24|17| And he said unto them, What manner of communications are these that ye have one to another, as ye walk, and are sad?

Luk|24|18| And the one of them, whose name was Cleopas, answering said unto him, Art thou only a stranger in Jerusalem, and hast not known the things which are come to pass there in these days?

Luk|24|19| And he said unto them, What things? And they said unto him, Concerning Jesus of Nazareth, which was a prophet mighty in deed and word before God and all the people:

Luk|24|20| And how the chief priests and our rulers delivered him to be condemned to death, and have crucified him.

Luk|24|21| But we trusted that it had been he which should have redeemed Israel: and beside all this, to day is the third day since these things were done.

Luk|24|22| Yea, and certain women also of our company made us astonished, which were early at the sepulchre;

Luk|24|23| And when they found not his body, they came, saying, that they had also seen a vision of angels, which said that he was alive.

Luk|24|24| And certain of them which were with us went to the sepulchre, and found it even so as the women had said: but him they saw not.

Luk|24|25| Then he said unto them, O fools, and slow of heart to believe all that the prophets have spoken:

Luk|24|26| Ought not Christ to have suffered these things, and to enter into his glory?

Luk|24|27| And beginning at Moses and all the prophets, he expounded unto them in all the scriptures the things concerning himself.

Luk|24|28| And they drew nigh unto the village, whither they went: and he made as though he would have gone further.

Luk|24|29| But they constrained him, saying, Abide with us: for it is toward evening, and the day is far spent. And he went in to tarry with them.

Luk|24|30| And it came to pass, as he sat at meat with them, he took bread, and blessed it, and brake, and gave to them.

Luk|24|31| And their eyes were opened, and they knew him; and he vanished out of their sight.

Luk|24|32| And they said one to another, Did not our heart burn within us, while he talked with us by the way, and while he opened to us the scriptures?

Luk|24|33| And they rose up the same hour, and returned to Jerusalem, and found the eleven gathered together, and them that were with them,

Luk|24|34| Saying, The Lord is risen indeed, and hath appeared to Simon.

Luk|24|35| And they told what things were done in the way, and how he was known of them in breaking of bread.

Luk|24|36| And as they thus spake, Jesus himself stood in the midst of them, and saith unto them, Peace be unto you.

Luk|24|37| But they were terrified and affrighted, and supposed that they had seen a spirit.

Luk|24|38| And he said unto them, Why are ye troubled? and why do thoughts arise in your hearts?

Luk|24|39| Behold my hands and my feet, that it is I myself: handle me, and see; for a spirit hath not flesh and bones, as ye see me have.

Luk|24|40| And when he had thus spoken, he shewed them his hands and his feet.

Luk|24|41| And while they yet believed not for joy, and wondered, he said unto them, Have ye here any meat?

Luk|24|42| And they gave him a piece of a broiled fish, and of an honeycomb.

Luk|24|43| And he took it, and did eat before them.

Luk|24|44| And he said unto them, These are the words which I spake unto you, while I was yet with you, that all things must be fulfilled, which were written in the law of Moses, and in the prophets, and in the psalms, concerning me.

Luk|24|45| Then opened he their understanding, that they might understand the scriptures,

Luk|24|46| And said unto them, Thus it is written, and thus it behoved Christ to suffer, and to rise from the dead the third day:

Luk|24|47| And that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in his name among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem.

Luk|24|48| And ye are witnesses of these things.

Luk|24|49| And, behold, I send the promise of my Father upon you: but tarry ye in the city of Jerusalem, until ye be endued with power from on high.

Luk|24|50| And he led them out as far as to Bethany, and he lifted up his hands, and blessed them.

Luk|24|51| And it came to pass, while he blessed them, he was parted from them, and carried up into heaven.

Luk|24|52| And they worshipped him, and returned to Jerusalem with great joy:

Luk|24|53| And were continually in the temple, praising and blessing God. Amen.

Joh|1|1| In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

Joh|1|2| The same was in the beginning with God.

Joh|1|3| All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.

Joh|1|4| In him was life; and the life was the light of men.

Joh|1|5| And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.

Joh|1|6| There was a man sent from God, whose name was John.

Joh|1|7| The same came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all men through him might believe.

Joh|1|8| He was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that Light.

Joh|1|9| That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world.

Joh|1|10| He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not.

Joh|1|11| He came unto his own, and his own received him not.

Joh|1|12| But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:

Joh|1|13| Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.

Joh|1|14| And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.

Joh|1|15| John bare witness of him, and cried, saying, This was he of whom I spake, He that cometh after me is preferred before me: for he was before me.

Joh|1|16| And of his fulness have all we received, and grace for grace.

Joh|1|17| For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ.

Joh|1|18| No man hath seen God at any time, the only begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared him.

Joh|1|19| And this is the record of John, when the Jews sent priests and Levites from Jerusalem to ask him, Who art thou?

Joh|1|20| And he confessed, and denied not; but confessed, I am not the Christ.

Joh|1|21| And they asked him, What then? Art thou Elias? And he saith, I am not. Art thou that prophet? And he answered, No.

Joh|1|22| Then said they unto him, Who art thou? that we may give an answer to them that sent us. What sayest thou of thyself?

Joh|1|23| He said, I am the voice of one crying in the wilderness, Make straight the way of the Lord, as said the prophet Esaias.

Joh|1|24| And they which were sent were of the Pharisees.

Joh|1|25| And they asked him, and said unto him, Why baptizest thou then, if thou be not that Christ, nor Elias, neither that prophet?

Joh|1|26| John answered them, saying, I baptize with water: but there standeth one among you, whom ye know not;

Joh|1|27| He it is, who coming after me is preferred before me, whose shoe's latchet I am not worthy to unloose.

Joh|1|28| These things were done in Bethabara beyond Jordan, where John was baptizing.

Joh|1|29| The next day John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith, Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world.

Joh|1|30| This is he of whom I said, After me cometh a man which is preferred before me: for he was before me.

Joh|1|31| And I knew him not: but that he should be made manifest to Israel, therefore am I come baptizing with water.

Joh|1|32| And John bare record, saying, I saw the Spirit descending from heaven like a dove, and it abode upon him.

Joh|1|33| And I knew him not: but he that sent me to baptize with water, the same said unto me, Upon whom thou shalt see the Spirit descending, and remaining on him, the same is he which baptizeth with the Holy Ghost.

Joh|1|34| And I saw, and bare record that this is the Son of God.

Joh|1|35| Again the next day after John stood, and two of his disciples;

Joh|1|36| And looking upon Jesus as he walked, he saith, Behold the Lamb of God!

Joh|1|37| And the two disciples heard him speak, and they followed Jesus.

Joh|1|38| Then Jesus turned, and saw them following, and saith unto them, What seek ye? They said unto him, Rabbi, (which is to say, being interpreted, Master,) where dwellest thou?

Joh|1|39| He saith unto them, Come and see. They came and saw where he dwelt, and abode with him that day: for it was about the tenth hour.

Joh|1|40| One of the two which heard John speak, and followed him, was Andrew, Simon Peter's brother.

Joh|1|41| He first findeth his own brother Simon, and saith unto him, We have found the Messias, which is, being interpreted, the Christ.

Joh|1|42| And he brought him to Jesus. And when Jesus beheld him, he said, Thou art Simon the son of Jona: thou shalt be called Cephas, which is by interpretation, A stone.

Joh|1|43| The day following Jesus would go forth into Galilee, and findeth Philip, and saith unto him, Follow me.

Joh|1|44| Now Philip was of Bethsaida, the city of Andrew and Peter.

Joh|1|45| Philip findeth Nathanael, and saith unto him, We have found him, of whom Moses in the law, and the prophets, did write, Jesus of Nazareth, the son of Joseph.

Joh|1|46| And Nathanael said unto him, Can there any good thing come out of Nazareth? Philip saith unto him, Come and see.

Joh|1|47| Jesus saw Nathanael coming to him, and saith of him, Behold an Israelite indeed, in whom is no guile!

Joh|1|48| Nathanael saith unto him, Whence knowest thou me? Jesus answered and said unto him, Before that Philip called thee, when thou wast under the fig tree, I saw thee.

Joh|1|49| Nathanael answered and saith unto him, Rabbi, thou art the Son of God; thou art the King of Israel.

Joh|1|50| Jesus answered and said unto him, Because I said unto thee, I saw thee under the fig tree, believest thou? thou shalt see greater things than these.

Joh|1|51| And he saith unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Hereafter ye shall see heaven open, and the angels of God ascending and descending upon the Son of man.

Joh|2|1| And the third day there was a marriage in Cana of Galilee; and the mother of Jesus was there:

Joh|2|2| And both Jesus was called, and his disciples, to the marriage.

Joh|2|3| And when they wanted wine, the mother of Jesus saith unto him, They have no wine.

Joh|2|4| Jesus saith unto her, Woman, what have I to do with thee? mine hour is not yet come.

Joh|2|5| His mother saith unto the servants, Whatsoever he saith unto you, do it.

Joh|2|6| And there were set there six waterpots of stone, after the manner of the purifying of the Jews, containing two or three firkins apiece.

Joh|2|7| Jesus saith unto them, Fill the waterpots with water. And they filled them up to the brim.

Joh|2|8| And he saith unto them, Draw out now, and bear unto the governor of the feast. And they bare it.

Joh|2|9| When the ruler of the feast had tasted the water that was made wine, and knew not whence it was: (but the servants which drew the water knew;) the governor of the feast called the bridegroom,

Joh|2|10| And saith unto him, Every man at the beginning doth set forth good wine; and when men have well drunk, then that which is worse: but thou hast kept the good wine until now.

Joh|2|11| This beginning of miracles did Jesus in Cana of Galilee, and manifested forth his glory; and his disciples believed on him.

Joh|2|12| After this he went down to Capernaum, he, and his mother, and his brethren, and his disciples: and they continued there not many days.

Joh|2|13| And the Jews' passover was at hand, and Jesus went up to Jerusalem.

Joh|2|14| And found in the temple those that sold oxen and sheep and doves, and the changers of money sitting:

Joh|2|15| And when he had made a scourge of small cords, he drove them all out of the temple, and the sheep, and the oxen; and poured out the changers' money, and overthrew the tables;

Joh|2|16| And said unto them that sold doves, Take these things hence; make not my Father's house an house of merchandise.

Joh|2|17| And his disciples remembered that it was written, The zeal of thine house hath eaten me up.

Joh|2|18| Then answered the Jews and said unto him, What sign shewest thou unto us, seeing that thou doest these things?

Joh|2|19| Jesus answered and said unto them, Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up.

Joh|2|20| Then said the Jews, Forty and six years was this temple in building, and wilt thou rear it up in three days?

Joh|2|21| But he spake of the temple of his body.

Joh|2|22| When therefore he was risen from the dead, his disciples remembered that he had said this unto them; and they believed the scripture, and the word which Jesus had said.

Joh|2|23| Now when he was in Jerusalem at the passover, in the feast day, many believed in his name, when they saw the miracles which he did.

Joh|2|24| But Jesus did not commit himself unto them, because he knew all men,

Joh|2|25| And needed not that any should testify of man: for he knew what was in man.

Joh|3|1| There was a man of the Pharisees, named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews:

Joh|3|2| The same came to Jesus by night, and said unto him, Rabbi, we know that thou art a teacher come from God: for no man can do these miracles that thou doest, except God be with him.

Joh|3|3| Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.

Joh|3|4| Nicodemus saith unto him, How can a man be born when he is old? can he enter the second time into his mother's womb, and be born?

Joh|3|5| Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.

Joh|3|6| That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.

Joh|3|7| Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again.

Joh|3|8| The wind bloweth where it listeth, and thou hearest the sound thereof, but canst not tell whence it cometh, and whither it goeth: so is every one that is born of the Spirit.

Joh|3|9| Nicodemus answered and said unto him, How can these things be?

Joh|3|10| Jesus answered and said unto him, Art thou a master of Israel, and knowest not these things?

Joh|3|11| Verily, verily, I say unto thee, We speak that we do know, and testify that we have seen; and ye receive not our witness.

Joh|3|12| If I have told you earthly things, and ye believe not, how shall ye believe, if I tell you of heavenly things?

Joh|3|13| And no man hath ascended up to heaven, but he that came down from heaven, even the Son of man which is in heaven.

Joh|3|14| And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up:

Joh|3|15| That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life.

Joh|3|16| For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

Joh|3|17| For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.

Joh|3|18| He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.

Joh|3|19| And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.

Joh|3|20| For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved.

Joh|3|21| But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God.

Joh|3|22| After these things came Jesus and his disciples into the land of Judaea; and there he tarried with them, and baptized.

Joh|3|23| And John also was baptizing in Aenon near to Salim, because there was much water there: and they came, and were baptized.

Joh|3|24| For John was not yet cast into prison.

Joh|3|25| Then there arose a question between some of John's disciples and the Jews about purifying.

Joh|3|26| And they came unto John, and said unto him, Rabbi, he that was with thee beyond Jordan, to whom thou barest witness, behold, the same baptizeth, and all men come to him.

Joh|3|27| John answered and said, A man can receive nothing, except it be given him from heaven.

Joh|3|28| Ye yourselves bear me witness, that I said, I am not the Christ, but that I am sent before him.

Joh|3|29| He that hath the bride is the bridegroom: but the friend of the bridegroom, which standeth and heareth him, rejoiceth greatly because of the bridegroom's voice: this my joy therefore is fulfilled.

Joh|3|30| He must increase, but I must decrease.

Joh|3|31| He that cometh from above is above all: he that is of the earth is earthly, and speaketh of the earth: he that cometh from heaven is above all.

Joh|3|32| And what he hath seen and heard, that he testifieth; and no man receiveth his testimony.

Joh|3|33| He that hath received his testimony hath set to his seal that God is true.

Joh|3|34| For he whom God hath sent speaketh the words of God: for God giveth not the Spirit by measure unto him.

Joh|3|35| The Father loveth the Son, and hath given all things into his hand.

Joh|3|36| He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him.

Joh|4|1| When therefore the LORD knew how the Pharisees had heard that Jesus made and baptized more disciples than John,

Joh|4|2| (Though Jesus himself baptized not, but his disciples,)

Joh|4|3| He left Judaea, and departed again into Galilee.

Joh|4|4| And he must needs go through Samaria.

Joh|4|5| Then cometh he to a city of Samaria, which is called Sychar, near to the parcel of ground that Jacob gave to his son Joseph.

Joh|4|6| Now Jacob's well was there. Jesus therefore, being wearied with his journey, sat thus on the well: and it was about the sixth hour.

Joh|4|7| There cometh a woman of Samaria to draw water: Jesus saith unto her, Give me to drink.

Joh|4|8| (For his disciples were gone away unto the city to buy meat.)

Joh|4|9| Then saith the woman of Samaria unto him, How is it that thou, being a Jew, askest drink of me, which am a woman of Samaria? for the Jews have no dealings with the Samaritans.

Joh|4|10| Jesus answered and said unto her, If thou knewest the gift of God, and who it is that saith to thee, Give me to drink; thou wouldest have asked of him, and he would have given thee living water.

Joh|4|11| The woman saith unto him, Sir, thou hast nothing to draw with, and the well is deep: from whence then hast thou that living water?

Joh|4|12| Art thou greater than our father Jacob, which gave us the well, and drank thereof himself, and his children, and his cattle?

Joh|4|13| Jesus answered and said unto her, Whosoever drinketh of this water shall thirst again:

Joh|4|14| But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life.

Joh|4|15| The woman saith unto him, Sir, give me this water, that I thirst not, neither come hither to draw.

Joh|4|16| Jesus saith unto her, Go, call thy husband, and come hither.

Joh|4|17| The woman answered and said, I have no husband. Jesus said unto her, Thou hast well said, I have no husband:

Joh|4|18| For thou hast had five husbands; and he whom thou now hast is not thy husband: in that saidst thou truly.

Joh|4|19| The woman saith unto him, Sir, I perceive that thou art a prophet.

Joh|4|20| Our fathers worshipped in this mountain; and ye say, that in Jerusalem is the place where men ought to worship.

Joh|4|21| Jesus saith unto her, Woman, believe me, the hour cometh, when ye shall neither in this mountain, nor yet at Jerusalem, worship the Father.

Joh|4|22| Ye worship ye know not what: we know what we worship: for salvation is of the Jews.

Joh|4|23| But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him.

Joh|4|24| God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.

Joh|4|25| The woman saith unto him, I know that Messias cometh, which is called Christ: when he is come, he will tell us all things.

Joh|4|26| Jesus saith unto her, I that speak unto thee am he.

Joh|4|27| And upon this came his disciples, and marvelled that he talked with the woman: yet no man said, What seekest thou? or, Why talkest thou with her?

Joh|4|28| The woman then left her waterpot, and went her way into the city, and saith to the men,

Joh|4|29| Come, see a man, which told me all things that ever I did: is not this the Christ?

Joh|4|30| Then they went out of the city, and came unto him.

Joh|4|31| In the mean while his disciples prayed him, saying, Master, eat.

Joh|4|32| But he said unto them, I have meat to eat that ye know not of.

Joh|4|33| Therefore said the disciples one to another, Hath any man brought him ought to eat?

Joh|4|34| Jesus saith unto them, My meat is to do the will of him that sent me, and to finish his work.

Joh|4|35| Say not ye, There are yet four months, and then cometh harvest? behold, I say unto you, Lift up your eyes, and look on the fields; for they are white already to harvest.

Joh|4|36| And he that reapeth receiveth wages, and gathereth fruit unto life eternal: that both he that soweth and he that reapeth may rejoice together.

Joh|4|37| And herein is that saying true, One soweth, and another reapeth.

Joh|4|38| I sent you to reap that whereon ye bestowed no labour: other men laboured, and ye are entered into their labours.

Joh|4|39| And many of the Samaritans of that city believed on him for the saying of the woman, which testified, He told me all that ever I did.

Joh|4|40| So when the Samaritans were come unto him, they besought him that he would tarry with them: and he abode there two days.

Joh|4|41| And many more believed because of his own word;

Joh|4|42| And said unto the woman, Now we believe, not because of thy saying: for we have heard him ourselves, and know that this is indeed the Christ, the Saviour of the world.

Joh|4|43| Now after two days he departed thence, and went into Galilee.

Joh|4|44| For Jesus himself testified, that a prophet hath no honour in his own country.

Joh|4|45| Then when he was come into Galilee, the Galilaeans received him, having seen all the things that he did at Jerusalem at the feast: for they also went unto the feast.

Joh|4|46| So Jesus came again into Cana of Galilee, where he made the water wine. And there was a certain nobleman, whose son was sick at Capernaum.

Joh|4|47| When he heard that Jesus was come out of Judaea into Galilee, he went unto him, and besought him that he would come down, and heal his son: for he was at the point of death.

Joh|4|48| Then said Jesus unto him, Except ye see signs and wonders, ye will not believe.

Joh|4|49| The nobleman saith unto him, Sir, come down ere my child die.

Joh|4|50| Jesus saith unto him, Go thy way; thy son liveth. And the man believed the word that Jesus had spoken unto him, and he went his way.

Joh|4|51| And as he was now going down, his servants met him, and told him, saying, Thy son liveth.

Joh|4|52| Then enquired he of them the hour when he began to amend. And they said unto him, Yesterday at the seventh hour the fever left him.

Joh|4|53| So the father knew that it was at the same hour, in the which Jesus said unto him, Thy son liveth: and himself believed, and his whole house.

Joh|4|54| This is again the second miracle that Jesus did, when he was come out of Judaea into Galilee.

Joh|5|1| After this there was a feast of the Jews; and Jesus went up to Jerusalem.

Joh|5|2| Now there is at Jerusalem by the sheep market a pool, which is called in the Hebrew tongue Bethesda, having five porches.

Joh|5|3| In these lay a great multitude of impotent folk, of blind, halt, withered, waiting for the moving of the water.

Joh|5|4| For an angel went down at a certain season into the pool, and troubled the water: whosoever then first after the troubling of the water stepped in was made whole of whatsoever disease he had.

Joh|5|5| And a certain man was there, which had an infirmity thirty and eight years.

Joh|5|6| When Jesus saw him lie, and knew that he had been now a long time in that case, he saith unto him, Wilt thou be made whole?

Joh|5|7| The impotent man answered him, Sir, I have no man, when the water is troubled, to put me into the pool: but while I am coming, another steppeth down before me.

Joh|5|8| Jesus saith unto him, Rise, take up thy bed, and walk.

Joh|5|9| And immediately the man was made whole, and took up his bed, and walked: and on the same day was the sabbath.

Joh|5|10| The Jews therefore said unto him that was cured, It is the sabbath day: it is not lawful for thee to carry thy bed.

Joh|5|11| He answered them, He that made me whole, the same said unto me, Take up thy bed, and walk.

Joh|5|12| Then asked they him, What man is that which said unto thee, Take up thy bed, and walk?

Joh|5|13| And he that was healed wist not who it was: for Jesus had conveyed himself away, a multitude being in that place.

Joh|5|14| Afterward Jesus findeth him in the temple, and said unto him, Behold, thou art made whole: sin no more, lest a worse thing come unto thee.

Joh|5|15| The man departed, and told the Jews that it was Jesus, which had made him whole.

Joh|5|16| And therefore did the Jews persecute Jesus, and sought to slay him, because he had done these things on the sabbath day.

Joh|5|17| But Jesus answered them, My Father worketh hitherto, and I work.

Joh|5|18| Therefore the Jews sought the more to kill him, because he not only had broken the sabbath, but said also that God was his Father, making himself equal with God.

Joh|5|19| Then answered Jesus and said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, The Son can do nothing of himself, but what he seeth the Father do: for what things soever he doeth, these also doeth the Son likewise.

Joh|5|20| For the Father loveth the Son, and sheweth him all things that himself doeth: and he will shew him greater works than these, that ye may marvel.

Joh|5|21| For as the Father raiseth up the dead, and quickeneth them; even so the Son quickeneth whom he will.

Joh|5|22| For the Father judgeth no man, but hath committed all judgment unto the Son:

Joh|5|23| That all men should honour the Son, even as they honour the Father. He that honoureth not the Son honoureth not the Father which hath sent him.

Joh|5|24| Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life.

Joh|5|25| Verily, verily, I say unto you, The hour is coming, and now is, when the dead shall hear the voice of the Son of God: and they that hear shall live.

Joh|5|26| For as the Father hath life in himself; so hath he given to the Son to have life in himself;

Joh|5|27| And hath given him authority to execute judgment also, because he is the Son of man.

Joh|5|28| Marvel not at this: for the hour is coming, in the which all that are in the graves shall hear his voice,

Joh|5|29| And shall come forth; they that have done good, unto the resurrection of life; and they that have done evil, unto the resurrection of damnation.

Joh|5|30| I can of mine own self do nothing: as I hear, I judge: and my judgment is just; because I seek not mine own will, but the will of the Father which hath sent me.

Joh|5|31| If I bear witness of myself, my witness is not true.

Joh|5|32| There is another that beareth witness of me; and I know that the witness which he witnesseth of me is true.

Joh|5|33| Ye sent unto John, and he bare witness unto the truth.

Joh|5|34| But I receive not testimony from man: but these things I say, that ye might be saved.

Joh|5|35| He was a burning and a shining light: and ye were willing for a season to rejoice in his light.

Joh|5|36| But I have greater witness than that of John: for the works which the Father hath given me to finish, the same works that I do, bear witness of me, that the Father hath sent me.

Joh|5|37| And the Father himself, which hath sent me, hath borne witness of me. Ye have neither heard his voice at any time, nor seen his shape.

Joh|5|38| And ye have not his word abiding in you: for whom he hath sent, him ye believe not.

Joh|5|39| Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me.

Joh|5|40| And ye will not come to me, that ye might have life.

Joh|5|41| I receive not honour from men.

Joh|5|42| But I know you, that ye have not the love of God in you.

Joh|5|43| I am come in my Father's name, and ye receive me not: if another shall come in his own name, him ye will receive.

Joh|5|44| How can ye believe, which receive honour one of another, and seek not the honour that cometh from God only?

Joh|5|45| Do not think that I will accuse you to the Father: there is one that accuseth you, even Moses, in whom ye trust.

Joh|5|46| For had ye believed Moses, ye would have believed me; for he wrote of me.

Joh|5|47| But if ye believe not his writings, how shall ye believe my words?

Joh|6|1| After these things Jesus went over the sea of Galilee, which is the sea of Tiberias.

Joh|6|2| And a great multitude followed him, because they saw his miracles which he did on them that were diseased.

Joh|6|3| And Jesus went up into a mountain, and there he sat with his disciples.

Joh|6|4| And the passover, a feast of the Jews, was nigh.

Joh|6|5| When Jesus then lifted up his eyes, and saw a great company come unto him, he saith unto Philip, Whence shall we buy bread, that these may eat?

Joh|6|6| And this he said to prove him: for he himself knew what he would do.

Joh|6|7| Philip answered him, Two hundred pennyworth of bread is not sufficient for them, that every one of them may take a little.

Joh|6|8| One of his disciples, Andrew, Simon Peter's brother, saith unto him,

Joh|6|9| There is a lad here, which hath five barley loaves, and two small fishes: but what are they among so many?

Joh|6|10| And Jesus said, Make the men sit down. Now there was much grass in the place. So the men sat down, in number about five thousand.

Joh|6|11| And Jesus took the loaves; and when he had given thanks, he distributed to the disciples, and the disciples to them that were set down; and likewise of the fishes as much as they would.

Joh|6|12| When they were filled, he said unto his disciples, Gather up the fragments that remain, that nothing be lost.

Joh|6|13| Therefore they gathered them together, and filled twelve baskets with the fragments of the five barley loaves, which remained over and above unto them that had eaten.

Joh|6|14| Then those men, when they had seen the miracle that Jesus did, said, This is of a truth that prophet that should come into the world.

Joh|6|15| When Jesus therefore perceived that they would come and take him by force, to make him a king, he departed again into a mountain himself alone.

Joh|6|16| And when even was now come, his disciples went down unto the sea,

Joh|6|17| And entered into a ship, and went over the sea toward Capernaum. And it was now dark, and Jesus was not come to them.

Joh|6|18| And the sea arose by reason of a great wind that blew.

Joh|6|19| So when they had rowed about five and twenty or thirty furlongs, they see Jesus walking on the sea, and drawing nigh unto the ship: and they were afraid.

Joh|6|20| But he saith unto them, It is I; be not afraid.

Joh|6|21| Then they willingly received him into the ship: and immediately the ship was at the land whither they went.

Joh|6|22| The day following, when the people which stood on the other side of the sea saw that there was none other boat there, save that one whereinto his disciples were entered, and that Jesus went not with his disciples into the boat, but that his disciples were gone away alone;

Joh|6|23| (Howbeit there came other boats from Tiberias nigh unto the place where they did eat bread, after that the Lord had given thanks:)

Joh|6|24| When the people therefore saw that Jesus was not there, neither his disciples, they also took shipping, and came to Capernaum, seeking for Jesus.

Joh|6|25| And when they had found him on the other side of the sea, they said unto him, Rabbi, when camest thou hither?

Joh|6|26| Jesus answered them and said, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Ye seek me, not because ye saw the miracles, but because ye did eat of the loaves, and were filled.

Joh|6|27| Labour not for the meat which perisheth, but for that meat which endureth unto everlasting life, which the Son of man shall give unto you: for him hath God the Father sealed.

Joh|6|28| Then said they unto him, What shall we do, that we might work the works of God?

Joh|6|29| Jesus answered and said unto them, This is the work of God, that ye believe on him whom he hath sent.

Joh|6|30| They said therefore unto him, What sign shewest thou then, that we may see, and believe thee? what dost thou work?

Joh|6|31| Our fathers did eat manna in the desert; as it is written, He gave them bread from heaven to eat.

Joh|6|32| Then Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Moses gave you not that bread from heaven; but my Father giveth you the true bread from heaven.

Joh|6|33| For the bread of God is he which cometh down from heaven, and giveth life unto the world.

Joh|6|34| Then said they unto him, Lord, evermore give us this bread.

Joh|6|35| And Jesus said unto them, I am the bread of life: he that cometh to me shall never hunger; and he that believeth on me shall never thirst.

Joh|6|36| But I said unto you, That ye also have seen me, and believe not.

Joh|6|37| All that the Father giveth me shall come to me; and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out.

Joh|6|38| For I came down from heaven, not to do mine own will, but the will of him that sent me.

Joh|6|39| And this is the Father's will which hath sent me, that of all which he hath given me I should lose nothing, but should raise it up again at the last day.

Joh|6|40| And this is the will of him that sent me, that every one which seeth the Son, and believeth on him, may have everlasting life: and I will raise him up at the last day.

Joh|6|41| The Jews then murmured at him, because he said, I am the bread which came down from heaven.

Joh|6|42| And they said, Is not this Jesus, the son of Joseph, whose father and mother we know? how is it then that he saith, I came down from heaven?

Joh|6|43| Jesus therefore answered and said unto them, Murmur not among yourselves.

Joh|6|44| No man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me draw him: and I will raise him up at the last day.

Joh|6|45| It is written in the prophets, And they shall be all taught of God. Every man therefore that hath heard, and hath learned of the Father, cometh unto me.

Joh|6|46| Not that any man hath seen the Father, save he which is of God, he hath seen the Father.

Joh|6|47| Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me hath everlasting life.

Joh|6|48| I am that bread of life.

Joh|6|49| Your fathers did eat manna in the wilderness, and are dead.

Joh|6|50| This is the bread which cometh down from heaven, that a man may eat thereof, and not die.

Joh|6|51| I am the living bread which came down from heaven: if any man eat of this bread, he shall live for ever: and the bread that I will give is my flesh, which I will give for the life of the world.

Joh|6|52| The Jews therefore strove among themselves, saying, How can this man give us his flesh to eat?

Joh|6|53| Then Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except ye eat the flesh of the Son of man, and drink his blood, ye have no life in you.

Joh|6|54| Whoso eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, hath eternal life; and I will raise him up at the last day.

Joh|6|55| For my flesh is meat indeed, and my blood is drink indeed.

Joh|6|56| He that eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, dwelleth in me, and I in him.

Joh|6|57| As the living Father hath sent me, and I live by the Father: so he that eateth me, even he shall live by me.

Joh|6|58| This is that bread which came down from heaven: not as your fathers did eat manna, and are dead: he that eateth of this bread shall live for ever.

Joh|6|59| These things said he in the synagogue, as he taught in Capernaum.

Joh|6|60| Many therefore of his disciples, when they had heard this, said, This is an hard saying; who can hear it?

Joh|6|61| When Jesus knew in himself that his disciples murmured at it, he said unto them, Doth this offend you?

Joh|6|62| What and if ye shall see the Son of man ascend up where he was before?

Joh|6|63| It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.

Joh|6|64| But there are some of you that believe not. For Jesus knew from the beginning who they were that believed not, and who should betray him.

Joh|6|65| And he said, Therefore said I unto you, that no man can come unto me, except it were given unto him of my Father.

Joh|6|66| From that time many of his disciples went back, and walked no more with him.

Joh|6|67| Then said Jesus unto the twelve, Will ye also go away?

Joh|6|68| Then Simon Peter answered him, Lord, to whom shall we go? thou hast the words of eternal life.

Joh|6|69| And we believe and are sure that thou art that Christ, the Son of the living God.

Joh|6|70| Jesus answered them, Have not I chosen you twelve, and one of you is a devil?

Joh|6|71| He spake of Judas Iscariot the son of Simon: for he it was that should betray him, being one of the twelve.

Joh|7|1| After these things Jesus walked in Galilee: for he would not walk in Jewry, because the Jews sought to kill him.

Joh|7|2| Now the Jew's feast of tabernacles was at hand.

Joh|7|3| His brethren therefore said unto him, Depart hence, and go into Judaea, that thy disciples also may see the works that thou doest.

Joh|7|4| For there is no man that doeth any thing in secret, and he himself seeketh to be known openly. If thou do these things, shew thyself to the world.

Joh|7|5| For neither did his brethren believe in him.

Joh|7|6| Then Jesus said unto them, My time is not yet come: but your time is alway ready.

Joh|7|7| The world cannot hate you; but me it hateth, because I testify of it, that the works thereof are evil.

Joh|7|8| Go ye up unto this feast: I go not up yet unto this feast: for my time is not yet full come.

Joh|7|9| When he had said these words unto them, he abode still in Galilee.

Joh|7|10| But when his brethren were gone up, then went he also up unto the feast, not openly, but as it were in secret.

Joh|7|11| Then the Jews sought him at the feast, and said, Where is he?

Joh|7|12| And there was much murmuring among the people concerning him: for some said, He is a good man: others said, Nay; but he deceiveth the people.

Joh|7|13| Howbeit no man spake openly of him for fear of the Jews.

Joh|7|14| Now about the midst of the feast Jesus went up into the temple, and taught.

Joh|7|15| And the Jews marvelled, saying, How knoweth this man letters, having never learned?

Joh|7|16| Jesus answered them, and said, My doctrine is not mine, but his that sent me.

Joh|7|17| If any man will do his will, he shall know of the doctrine, whether it be of God, or whether I speak of myself.

Joh|7|18| He that speaketh of himself seeketh his own glory: but he that seeketh his glory that sent him, the same is true, and no unrighteousness is in him.

Joh|7|19| Did not Moses give you the law, and yet none of you keepeth the law?Why go ye about to kill me?

Joh|7|20| The people answered and said, Thou hast a devil: who goeth about to kill thee?

Joh|7|21| Jesus answered and said unto them, I have done one work, and ye all marvel.

Joh|7|22| Moses therefore gave unto you circumcision; (not because it is of Moses, but of the fathers;) and ye on the sabbath day circumcise a man.

Joh|7|23| If a man on the sabbath day receive circumcision, that the law of Moses should not be broken; are ye angry at me, because I have made a man every whit whole on the sabbath day?

Joh|7|24| Judge not according to the appearance, but judge righteous judgment.

Joh|7|25| Then said some of them of Jerusalem, Is not this he, whom they seek to kill?

Joh|7|26| But, lo, he speaketh boldly, and they say nothing unto him. Do the rulers know indeed that this is the very Christ?

Joh|7|27| Howbeit we know this man whence he is: but when Christ cometh, no man knoweth whence he is.

Joh|7|28| Then cried Jesus in the temple as he taught, saying, Ye both know me, and ye know whence I am: and I am not come of myself, but he that sent me is true, whom ye know not.

Joh|7|29| But I know him: for I am from him, and he hath sent me.

Joh|7|30| Then they sought to take him: but no man laid hands on him, because his hour was not yet come.

Joh|7|31| And many of the people believed on him, and said, When Christ cometh, will he do more miracles than these which this man hath done?

Joh|7|32| The Pharisees heard that the people murmured such things concerning him; and the Pharisees and the chief priests sent officers to take him.

Joh|7|33| Then said Jesus unto them, Yet a little while am I with you, and then I go unto him that sent me.

Joh|7|34| Ye shall seek me, and shall not find me: and where I am, thither ye cannot come.

Joh|7|35| Then said the Jews among themselves, Whither will he go, that we shall not find him? will he go unto the dispersed among the Gentiles, and teach the Gentiles?

Joh|7|36| What manner of saying is this that he said, Ye shall seek me, and shall not find me: and where I am, thither ye cannot come?

Joh|7|37| In the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried, saying, If any man thirst, let him come unto me, and drink.

Joh|7|38| He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water.

Joh|7|39| (But this spake he of the Spirit, which they that believe on him should receive: for the Holy Ghost was not yet given; because that Jesus was not yet glorified.)

Joh|7|40| Many of the people therefore, when they heard this saying, said, Of a truth this is the Prophet.

Joh|7|41| Others said, This is the Christ. But some said, Shall Christ come out of Galilee?

Joh|7|42| Hath not the scripture said, That Christ cometh of the seed of David, and out of the town of Bethlehem, where David was?

Joh|7|43| So there was a division among the people because of him.

Joh|7|44| And some of them would have taken him; but no man laid hands on him.

Joh|7|45| Then came the officers to the chief priests and Pharisees; and they said unto them, Why have ye not brought him?

Joh|7|46| The officers answered, Never man spake like this man.

Joh|7|47| Then answered them the Pharisees, Are ye also deceived?

Joh|7|48| Have any of the rulers or of the Pharisees believed on him?

Joh|7|49| But this people who knoweth not the law are cursed.

Joh|7|50| Nicodemus saith unto them, (he that came to Jesus by night, being one of them,)

Joh|7|51| Doth our law judge any man, before it hear him, and know what he doeth?

Joh|7|52| They answered and said unto him, Art thou also of Galilee?Search, and look: for out of Galilee ariseth no prophet.

Joh|7|53| And every man went unto his own house.

Joh|8|1| Jesus went unto the mount of Olives.

Joh|8|2| And early in the morning he came again into the temple, and all the people came unto him; and he sat down, and taught them.

Joh|8|3| And the scribes and Pharisees brought unto him a woman taken in adultery; and when they had set her in the midst,

Joh|8|4| They say unto him, Master, this woman was taken in adultery, in the very act.

Joh|8|5| Now Moses in the law commanded us, that such should be stoned: but what sayest thou?

Joh|8|6| This they said, tempting him, that they might have to accuse him. But Jesus stooped down, and with his finger wrote on the ground, as though he heard them not.

Joh|8|7| So when they continued asking him, he lifted up himself, and said unto them, He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her.

Joh|8|8| And again he stooped down, and wrote on the ground.

Joh|8|9| And they which heard it, being convicted by their own conscience, went out one by one, beginning at the eldest, even unto the last: and Jesus was left alone, and the woman standing in the midst.

Joh|8|10| When Jesus had lifted up himself, and saw none but the woman, he said unto her, Woman, where are those thine accusers? hath no man condemned thee?

Joh|8|11| She said, No man, Lord. And Jesus said unto her, Neither do I condemn thee: go, and sin no more.

Joh|8|12| Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.

Joh|8|13| The Pharisees therefore said unto him, Thou bearest record of thyself; thy record is not true.

Joh|8|14| Jesus answered and said unto them, Though I bear record of myself, yet my record is true: for I know whence I came, and whither I go; but ye cannot tell whence I come, and whither I go.

Joh|8|15| Ye judge after the flesh; I judge no man.

Joh|8|16| And yet if I judge, my judgment is true: for I am not alone, but I and the Father that sent me.

Joh|8|17| It is also written in your law, that the testimony of two men is true.

Joh|8|18| I am one that bear witness of myself, and the Father that sent me beareth witness of me.

Joh|8|19| Then said they unto him, Where is thy Father? Jesus answered, Ye neither know me, nor my Father: if ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also.

Joh|8|20| These words spake Jesus in the treasury, as he taught in the temple: and no man laid hands on him; for his hour was not yet come.

Joh|8|21| Then said Jesus again unto them, I go my way, and ye shall seek me, and shall die in your sins: whither I go, ye cannot come.

Joh|8|22| Then said the Jews, Will he kill himself? because he saith, Whither I go, ye cannot come.

Joh|8|23| And he said unto them, Ye are from beneath; I am from above: ye are of this world; I am not of this world.

Joh|8|24| I said therefore unto you, that ye shall die in your sins: for if ye believe not that I am he, ye shall die in your sins.

Joh|8|25| Then said they unto him, Who art thou? And Jesus saith unto them, Even the same that I said unto you from the beginning.

Joh|8|26| I have many things to say and to judge of you: but he that sent me is true; and I speak to the world those things which I have heard of him.

Joh|8|27| They understood not that he spake to them of the Father.

Joh|8|28| Then said Jesus unto them, When ye have lifted up the Son of man, then shall ye know that I am he, and that I do nothing of myself; but as my Father hath taught me, I speak these things.

Joh|8|29| And he that sent me is with me: the Father hath not left me alone; for I do always those things that please him.

Joh|8|30| As he spake these words, many believed on him.

Joh|8|31| Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed;

Joh|8|32| And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.

Joh|8|33| They answered him, We be Abraham's seed, and were never in bondage to any man: how sayest thou, Ye shall be made free?

Joh|8|34| Jesus answered them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whosoever committeth sin is the servant of sin.

Joh|8|35| And the servant abideth not in the house for ever: but the Son abideth ever.

Joh|8|36| If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.

Joh|8|37| I know that ye are Abraham's seed; but ye seek to kill me, because my word hath no place in you.

Joh|8|38| I speak that which I have seen with my Father: and ye do that which ye have seen with your father.

Joh|8|39| They answered and said unto him, Abraham is our father. Jesus saith unto them, If ye were Abraham's children, ye would do the works of Abraham.

Joh|8|40| But now ye seek to kill me, a man that hath told you the truth, which I have heard of God: this did not Abraham.

Joh|8|41| Ye do the deeds of your father. Then said they to him, We be not born of fornication; we have one Father, even God.

Joh|8|42| Jesus said unto them, If God were your Father, ye would love me: for I proceeded forth and came from God; neither came I of myself, but he sent me.

Joh|8|43| Why do ye not understand my speech? even because ye cannot hear my word.

Joh|8|44| Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.

Joh|8|45| And because I tell you the truth, ye believe me not.

Joh|8|46| Which of you convinceth me of sin? And if I say the truth, why do ye not believe me?

Joh|8|47| He that is of God heareth God's words: ye therefore hear them not, because ye are not of God.

Joh|8|48| Then answered the Jews, and said unto him, Say we not well that thou art a Samaritan, and hast a devil?

Joh|8|49| Jesus answered, I have not a devil; but I honour my Father, and ye do dishonour me.

Joh|8|50| And I seek not mine own glory: there is one that seeketh and judgeth.

Joh|8|51| Verily, verily, I say unto you, If a man keep my saying, he shall never see death.

Joh|8|52| Then said the Jews unto him, Now we know that thou hast a devil. Abraham is dead, and the prophets; and thou sayest, If a man keep my saying, he shall never taste of death.

Joh|8|53| Art thou greater than our father Abraham, which is dead? and the prophets are dead: whom makest thou thyself?

Joh|8|54| Jesus answered, If I honour myself, my honour is nothing: it is my Father that honoureth me; of whom ye say, that he is your God:

Joh|8|55| Yet ye have not known him; but I know him: and if I should say, I know him not, I shall be a liar like unto you: but I know him, and keep his saying.

Joh|8|56| Your father Abraham rejoiced to see my day: and he saw it, and was glad.

Joh|8|57| Then said the Jews unto him, Thou art not yet fifty years old, and hast thou seen Abraham?

Joh|8|58| Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I am.

Joh|8|59| Then took they up stones to cast at him: but Jesus hid himself, and went out of the temple, going through the midst of them, and so passed by.

Joh|9|1| And as Jesus passed by, he saw a man which was blind from his birth.

Joh|9|2| And his disciples asked him, saying, Master, who did sin, this man, or his parents, that he was born blind?

Joh|9|3| Jesus answered, Neither hath this man sinned, nor his parents: but that the works of God should be made manifest in him.

Joh|9|4| I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work.

Joh|9|5| As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world.

Joh|9|6| When he had thus spoken, he spat on the ground, and made clay of the spittle, and he anointed the eyes of the blind man with the clay,

Joh|9|7| And said unto him, Go, wash in the pool of Siloam, (which is by interpretation, Sent.) He went his way therefore, and washed, and came seeing.

Joh|9|8| The neighbours therefore, and they which before had seen him that he was blind, said, Is not this he that sat and begged?

Joh|9|9| Some said, This is he: others said, He is like him: but he said, I am he.

Joh|9|10| Therefore said they unto him, How were thine eyes opened?

Joh|9|11| He answered and said, A man that is called Jesus made clay, and anointed mine eyes, and said unto me, Go to the pool of Siloam, and wash: and I went and washed, and I received sight.

Joh|9|12| Then said they unto him, Where is he? He said, I know not.

Joh|9|13| They brought to the Pharisees him that aforetime was blind.

Joh|9|14| And it was the sabbath day when Jesus made the clay, and opened his eyes.

Joh|9|15| Then again the Pharisees also asked him how he had received his sight. He said unto them, He put clay upon mine eyes, and I washed, and do see.

Joh|9|16| Therefore said some of the Pharisees, This man is not of God, because he keepeth not the sabbath day. Others said, How can a man that is a sinner do such miracles? And there was a division among them.

Joh|9|17| They say unto the blind man again, What sayest thou of him, that he hath opened thine eyes? He said, He is a prophet.

Joh|9|18| But the Jews did not believe concerning him, that he had been blind, and received his sight, until they called the parents of him that had received his sight.

Joh|9|19| And they asked them, saying, Is this your son, who ye say was born blind? how then doth he now see?

Joh|9|20| His parents answered them and said, We know that this is our son, and that he was born blind:

Joh|9|21| But by what means he now seeth, we know not; or who hath opened his eyes, we know not: he is of age; ask him: he shall speak for himself.

Joh|9|22| These words spake his parents, because they feared the Jews: for the Jews had agreed already, that if any man did confess that he was Christ, he should be put out of the synagogue.

Joh|9|23| Therefore said his parents, He is of age; ask him.

Joh|9|24| Then again called they the man that was blind, and said unto him, Give God the praise: we know that this man is a sinner.

Joh|9|25| He answered and said, Whether he be a sinner or no, I know not: one thing I know, that, whereas I was blind, now I see.

Joh|9|26| Then said they to him again, What did he to thee? how opened he thine eyes?

Joh|9|27| He answered them, I have told you already, and ye did not hear: wherefore would ye hear it again? will ye also be his disciples?

Joh|9|28| Then they reviled him, and said, Thou art his disciple; but we are Moses' disciples.

Joh|9|29| We know that God spake unto Moses: as for this fellow, we know not from whence he is.

Joh|9|30| The man answered and said unto them, Why herein is a marvellous thing, that ye know not from whence he is, and yet he hath opened mine eyes.

Joh|9|31| Now we know that God heareth not sinners: but if any man be a worshipper of God, and doeth his will, him he heareth.

Joh|9|32| Since the world began was it not heard that any man opened the eyes of one that was born blind.

Joh|9|33| If this man were not of God, he could do nothing.

Joh|9|34| They answered and said unto him, Thou wast altogether born in sins, and dost thou teach us? And they cast him out.

Joh|9|35| Jesus heard that they had cast him out; and when he had found him, he said unto him, Dost thou believe on the Son of God?

Joh|9|36| He answered and said, Who is he, Lord, that I might believe on him?

Joh|9|37| And Jesus said unto him, Thou hast both seen him, and it is he that talketh with thee.

Joh|9|38| And he said, Lord, I believe. And he worshipped him.

Joh|9|39| And Jesus said, For judgment I am come into this world, that they which see not might see; and that they which see might be made blind.

Joh|9|40| And some of the Pharisees which were with him heard these words, and said unto him, Are we blind also?

Joh|9|41| Jesus said unto them, If ye were blind, ye should have no sin: but now ye say, We see; therefore your sin remaineth.

Joh|10|1| Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that entereth not by the door into the sheepfold, but climbeth up some other way, the same is a thief and a robber.

Joh|10|2| But he that entereth in by the door is the shepherd of the sheep.

Joh|10|3| To him the porter openeth; and the sheep hear his voice: and he calleth his own sheep by name, and leadeth them out.

Joh|10|4| And when he putteth forth his own sheep, he goeth before them, and the sheep follow him: for they know his voice.

Joh|10|5| And a stranger will they not follow, but will flee from him: for they know not the voice of strangers.

Joh|10|6| This parable spake Jesus unto them: but they understood not what things they were which he spake unto them.

Joh|10|7| Then said Jesus unto them again, Verily, verily, I say unto you, I am the door of the sheep.

Joh|10|8| All that ever came before me are thieves and robbers: but the sheep did not hear them.

Joh|10|9| I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture.

Joh|10|10| The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.

Joh|10|11| I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep.

Joh|10|12| But he that is an hireling, and not the shepherd, whose own the sheep are not, seeth the wolf coming, and leaveth the sheep, and fleeth: and the wolf catcheth them, and scattereth the sheep.

Joh|10|13| The hireling fleeth, because he is an hireling, and careth not for the sheep.

Joh|10|14| I am the good shepherd, and know my sheep, and am known of mine.

Joh|10|15| As the Father knoweth me, even so know I the Father: and I lay down my life for the sheep.

Joh|10|16| And other sheep I have, which are not of this fold: them also I must bring, and they shall hear my voice; and there shall be one fold, and one shepherd.

Joh|10|17| Therefore doth my Father love me, because I lay down my life, that I might take it again.

Joh|10|18| No man taketh it from me, but I lay it down of myself. I have power to lay it down, and I have power to take it again. This commandment have I received of my Father.

Joh|10|19| There was a division therefore again among the Jews for these sayings.

Joh|10|20| And many of them said, He hath a devil, and is mad; why hear ye him?

Joh|10|21| Others said, These are not the words of him that hath a devil. Can a devil open the eyes of the blind?

Joh|10|22| And it was at Jerusalem the feast of the dedication, and it was winter.

Joh|10|23| And Jesus walked in the temple in Solomon's porch.

Joh|10|24| Then came the Jews round about him, and said unto him, How long dost thou make us to doubt? If thou be the Christ, tell us plainly.

Joh|10|25| Jesus answered them, I told you, and ye believed not: the works that I do in my Father's name, they bear witness of me.

Joh|10|26| But ye believe not, because ye are not of my sheep, as I said unto you.

Joh|10|27| My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me:

Joh|10|28| And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.

Joh|10|29| My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father's hand.

Joh|10|30| I and my Father are one.

Joh|10|31| Then the Jews took up stones again to stone him.

Joh|10|32| Jesus answered them, Many good works have I shewed you from my Father; for which of those works do ye stone me?

Joh|10|33| The Jews answered him, saying, For a good work we stone thee not; but for blasphemy; and because that thou, being a man, makest thyself God.

Joh|10|34| Jesus answered them, Is it not written in your law, I said, Ye are gods?

Joh|10|35| If he called them gods, unto whom the word of God came, and the scripture cannot be broken;

Joh|10|36| Say ye of him, whom the Father hath sanctified, and sent into the world, Thou blasphemest; because I said, I am the Son of God?

Joh|10|37| If I do not the works of my Father, believe me not.

Joh|10|38| But if I do, though ye believe not me, believe the works: that ye may know, and believe, that the Father is in me, and I in him.

Joh|10|39| Therefore they sought again to take him: but he escaped out of their hand,

Joh|10|40| And went away again beyond Jordan into the place where John at first baptized; and there he abode.

Joh|10|41| And many resorted unto him, and said, John did no miracle: but all things that John spake of this man were true.

Joh|10|42| And many believed on him there.

Joh|11|1| Now a certain man was sick, named Lazarus, of Bethany, the town of Mary and her sister Martha.

Joh|11|2| (It was that Mary which anointed the Lord with ointment, and wiped his feet with her hair, whose brother Lazarus was sick.)

Joh|11|3| Therefore his sisters sent unto him, saying, Lord, behold, he whom thou lovest is sick.

Joh|11|4| When Jesus heard that, he said, This sickness is not unto death, but for the glory of God, that the Son of God might be glorified thereby.

Joh|11|5| Now Jesus loved Martha, and her sister, and Lazarus.

Joh|11|6| When he had heard therefore that he was sick, he abode two days still in the same place where he was.

Joh|11|7| Then after that saith he to his disciples, Let us go into Judaea again.

Joh|11|8| His disciples say unto him, Master, the Jews of late sought to stone thee; and goest thou thither again?

Joh|11|9| Jesus answered, Are there not twelve hours in the day? If any man walk in the day, he stumbleth not, because he seeth the light of this world.

Joh|11|10| But if a man walk in the night, he stumbleth, because there is no light in him.

Joh|11|11| These things said he: and after that he saith unto them, Our friend Lazarus sleepeth; but I go, that I may awake him out of sleep.

Joh|11|12| Then said his disciples, Lord, if he sleep, he shall do well.

Joh|11|13| Howbeit Jesus spake of his death: but they thought that he had spoken of taking of rest in sleep.

Joh|11|14| Then said Jesus unto them plainly, Lazarus is dead.

Joh|11|15| And I am glad for your sakes that I was not there, to the intent ye may believe; nevertheless let us go unto him.

Joh|11|16| Then said Thomas, which is called Didymus, unto his fellowdisciples, Let us also go, that we may die with him.

Joh|11|17| Then when Jesus came, he found that he had lain in the grave four days already.

Joh|11|18| Now Bethany was nigh unto Jerusalem, about fifteen furlongs off:

Joh|11|19| And many of the Jews came to Martha and Mary, to comfort them concerning their brother.

Joh|11|20| Then Martha, as soon as she heard that Jesus was coming, went and met him: but Mary sat still in the house.

Joh|11|21| Then said Martha unto Jesus, Lord, if thou hadst been here, my brother had not died.

Joh|11|22| But I know, that even now, whatsoever thou wilt ask of God, God will give it thee.

Joh|11|23| Jesus saith unto her, Thy brother shall rise again.

Joh|11|24| Martha saith unto him, I know that he shall rise again in the resurrection at the last day.

Joh|11|25| Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live:

Joh|11|26| And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die. Believest thou this?

Joh|11|27| She saith unto him, Yea, Lord: I believe that thou art the Christ, the Son of God, which should come into the world.

Joh|11|28| And when she had so said, she went her way, and called Mary her sister secretly, saying, The Master is come, and calleth for thee.

Joh|11|29| As soon as she heard that, she arose quickly, and came unto him.

Joh|11|30| Now Jesus was not yet come into the town, but was in that place where Martha met him.

Joh|11|31| The Jews then which were with her in the house, and comforted her, when they saw Mary, that she rose up hastily and went out, followed her, saying, She goeth unto the grave to weep there.

Joh|11|32| Then when Mary was come where Jesus was, and saw him, she fell down at his feet, saying unto him, Lord, if thou hadst been here, my brother had not died.

Joh|11|33| When Jesus therefore saw her weeping, and the Jews also weeping which came with her, he groaned in the spirit, and was troubled.

Joh|11|34| And said, Where have ye laid him? They said unto him, Lord, come and see.

Joh|11|35| Jesus wept.

Joh|11|36| Then said the Jews, Behold how he loved him!

Joh|11|37| And some of them said, Could not this man, which opened the eyes of the blind, have caused that even this man should not have died?

Joh|11|38| Jesus therefore again groaning in himself cometh to the grave. It was a cave, and a stone lay upon it.

Joh|11|39| Jesus said, Take ye away the stone. Martha, the sister of him that was dead, saith unto him, Lord, by this time he stinketh: for he hath been dead four days.

Joh|11|40| Jesus saith unto her, Said I not unto thee, that, if thou wouldest believe, thou shouldest see the glory of God?

Joh|11|41| Then they took away the stone from the place where the dead was laid. And Jesus lifted up his eyes, and said, Father, I thank thee that thou hast heard me.

Joh|11|42| And I knew that thou hearest me always: but because of the people which stand by I said it, that they may believe that thou hast sent me.

Joh|11|43| And when he thus had spoken, he cried with a loud voice, Lazarus, come forth.

Joh|11|44| And he that was dead came forth, bound hand and foot with graveclothes: and his face was bound about with a napkin. Jesus saith unto them, Loose him, and let him go.

Joh|11|45| Then many of the Jews which came to Mary, and had seen the things which Jesus did, believed on him.

Joh|11|46| But some of them went their ways to the Pharisees, and told them what things Jesus had done.

Joh|11|47| Then gathered the chief priests and the Pharisees a council, and said, What do we? for this man doeth many miracles.

Joh|11|48| If we let him thus alone, all men will believe on him: and the Romans shall come and take away both our place and nation.

Joh|11|49| And one of them, named Caiaphas, being the high priest that same year, said unto them, Ye know nothing at all,

Joh|11|50| Nor consider that it is expedient for us, that one man should die for the people, and that the whole nation perish not.

Joh|11|51| And this spake he not of himself: but being high priest that year, he prophesied that Jesus should die for that nation;

Joh|11|52| And not for that nation only, but that also he should gather together in one the children of God that were scattered abroad.

Joh|11|53| Then from that day forth they took counsel together for to put him to death.

Joh|11|54| Jesus therefore walked no more openly among the Jews; but went thence unto a country near to the wilderness, into a city called Ephraim, and there continued with his disciples.

Joh|11|55| And the Jews' passover was nigh at hand: and many went out of the country up to Jerusalem before the passover, to purify themselves.

Joh|11|56| Then sought they for Jesus, and spake among themselves, as they stood in the temple, What think ye, that he will not come to the feast?

Joh|11|57| Now both the chief priests and the Pharisees had given a commandment, that, if any man knew where he were, he should shew it, that they might take him.

Joh|12|1| Then Jesus six days before the passover came to Bethany, where Lazarus was, which had been dead, whom he raised from the dead.

Joh|12|2| There they made him a supper; and Martha served: but Lazarus was one of them that sat at the table with him.

Joh|12|3| Then took Mary a pound of ointment of spikenard, very costly, and anointed the feet of Jesus, and wiped his feet with her hair: and the house was filled with the odour of the ointment.

Joh|12|4| Then saith one of his disciples, Judas Iscariot, Simon's son, which should betray him,

Joh|12|5| Why was not this ointment sold for three hundred pence, and given to the poor?

Joh|12|6| This he said, not that he cared for the poor; but because he was a thief, and had the bag, and bare what was put therein.

Joh|12|7| Then said Jesus, Let her alone: against the day of my burying hath she kept this.

Joh|12|8| For the poor always ye have with you; but me ye have not always.

Joh|12|9| Much people of the Jews therefore knew that he was there: and they came not for Jesus' sake only, but that they might see Lazarus also, whom he had raised from the dead.

Joh|12|10| But the chief priests consulted that they might put Lazarus also to death;

Joh|12|11| Because that by reason of him many of the Jews went away, and believed on Jesus.

Joh|12|12| On the next day much people that were come to the feast, when they heard that Jesus was coming to Jerusalem,

Joh|12|13| Took branches of palm trees, and went forth to meet him, and cried, Hosanna: Blessed is the King of Israel that cometh in the name of the Lord.

Joh|12|14| And Jesus, when he had found a young ass, sat thereon; as it is written,

Joh|12|15| Fear not, daughter of Sion: behold, thy King cometh, sitting on an ass's colt.

Joh|12|16| These things understood not his disciples at the first: but when Jesus was glorified, then remembered they that these things were written of him, and that they had done these things unto him.

Joh|12|17| The people therefore that was with him when he called Lazarus out of his grave, and raised him from the dead, bare record.

Joh|12|18| For this cause the people also met him, for that they heard that he had done this miracle.

Joh|12|19| The Pharisees therefore said among themselves, Perceive ye how ye prevail nothing? behold, the world is gone after him.

Joh|12|20| And there were certain Greeks among them that came up to worship at the feast:

Joh|12|21| The same came therefore to Philip, which was of Bethsaida of Galilee, and desired him, saying, Sir, we would see Jesus.

Joh|12|22| Philip cometh and telleth Andrew: and again Andrew and Philip tell Jesus.

Joh|12|23| And Jesus answered them, saying, The hour is come, that the Son of man should be glorified.

Joh|12|24| Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except a corn of wheat fall into the ground and die, it abideth alone: but if it die, it bringeth forth much fruit.

Joh|12|25| He that loveth his life shall lose it; and he that hateth his life in this world shall keep it unto life eternal.

Joh|12|26| If any man serve me, let him follow me; and where I am, there shall also my servant be: if any man serve me, him will my Father honour.

Joh|12|27| Now is my soul troubled; and what shall I say? Father, save me from this hour: but for this cause came I unto this hour.

Joh|12|28| Father, glorify thy name. Then came there a voice from heaven, saying, I have both glorified it, and will glorify it again.

Joh|12|29| The people therefore, that stood by, and heard it, said that it thundered: others said, An angel spake to him.

Joh|12|30| Jesus answered and said, This voice came not because of me, but for your sakes.

Joh|12|31| Now is the judgment of this world: now shall the prince of this world be cast out.

Joh|12|32| And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto me.

Joh|12|33| This he said, signifying what death he should die.

Joh|12|34| The people answered him, We have heard out of the law that Christ abideth for ever: and how sayest thou, The Son of man must be lifted up? who is this Son of man?

Joh|12|35| Then Jesus said unto them, Yet a little while is the light with you. Walk while ye have the light, lest darkness come upon you: for he that walketh in darkness knoweth not whither he goeth.

Joh|12|36| While ye have light, believe in the light, that ye may be the children of light. These things spake Jesus, and departed, and did hide himself from them.

Joh|12|37| But though he had done so many miracles before them, yet they believed not on him:

Joh|12|38| That the saying of Esaias the prophet might be fulfilled, which he spake, Lord, who hath believed our report? and to whom hath the arm of the Lord been revealed?

Joh|12|39| Therefore they could not believe, because that Esaias said again,

Joh|12|40| He hath blinded their eyes, and hardened their heart; that they should not see with their eyes, nor understand with their heart, and be converted, and I should heal them.

Joh|12|41| These things said Esaias, when he saw his glory, and spake of him.

Joh|12|42| Nevertheless among the chief rulers also many believed on him; but because of the Pharisees they did not confess him, lest they should be put out of the synagogue:

Joh|12|43| For they loved the praise of men more than the praise of God.

Joh|12|44| Jesus cried and said, He that believeth on me, believeth not on me, but on him that sent me.

Joh|12|45| And he that seeth me seeth him that sent me.

Joh|12|46| I am come a light into the world, that whosoever believeth on me should not abide in darkness.

Joh|12|47| And if any man hear my words, and believe not, I judge him not: for I came not to judge the world, but to save the world.

Joh|12|48| He that rejecteth me, and receiveth not my words, hath one that judgeth him: the word that I have spoken, the same shall judge him in the last day.

Joh|12|49| For I have not spoken of myself; but the Father which sent me, he gave me a commandment, what I should say, and what I should speak.

Joh|12|50| And I know that his commandment is life everlasting: whatsoever I speak therefore, even as the Father said unto me, so I speak.

Joh|13|1| Now before the feast of the passover, when Jesus knew that his hour was come that he should depart out of this world unto the Father, having loved his own which were in the world, he loved them unto the end.

Joh|13|2| And supper being ended, the devil having now put into the heart of Judas Iscariot, Simon's son, to betray him;

Joh|13|3| Jesus knowing that the Father had given all things into his hands, and that he was come from God, and went to God;

Joh|13|4| He riseth from supper, and laid aside his garments; and took a towel, and girded himself.

Joh|13|5| After that he poureth water into a bason, and began to wash the disciples' feet, and to wipe them with the towel wherewith he was girded.

Joh|13|6| Then cometh he to Simon Peter: and Peter saith unto him, Lord, dost thou wash my feet?

Joh|13|7| Jesus answered and said unto him, What I do thou knowest not now; but thou shalt know hereafter.

Joh|13|8| Peter saith unto him, Thou shalt never wash my feet. Jesus answered him, If I wash thee not, thou hast no part with me.

Joh|13|9| Simon Peter saith unto him, Lord, not my feet only, but also my hands and my head.

Joh|13|10| Jesus saith to him, He that is washed needeth not save to wash his feet, but is clean every whit: and ye are clean, but not all.

Joh|13|11| For he knew who should betray him; therefore said he, Ye are not all clean.

Joh|13|12| So after he had washed their feet, and had taken his garments, and was set down again, he said unto them, Know ye what I have done to you?

Joh|13|13| Ye call me Master and Lord: and ye say well; for so I am.

Joh|13|14| If I then, your Lord and Master, have washed your feet; ye also ought to wash one another's feet.

Joh|13|15| For I have given you an example, that ye should do as I have done to you.

Joh|13|16| Verily, verily, I say unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord; neither he that is sent greater than he that sent him.

Joh|13|17| If ye know these things, happy are ye if ye do them.

Joh|13|18| I speak not of you all: I know whom I have chosen: but that the scripture may be fulfilled, He that eateth bread with me hath lifted up his heel against me.

Joh|13|19| Now I tell you before it come, that, when it is come to pass, ye may believe that I am he.

Joh|13|20| Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that receiveth whomsoever I send receiveth me; and he that receiveth me receiveth him that sent me.

Joh|13|21| When Jesus had thus said, he was troubled in spirit, and testified, and said, Verily, verily, I say unto you, that one of you shall betray me.

Joh|13|22| Then the disciples looked one on another, doubting of whom he spake.

Joh|13|23| Now there was leaning on Jesus' bosom one of his disciples, whom Jesus loved.

Joh|13|24| Simon Peter therefore beckoned to him, that he should ask who it should be of whom he spake.

Joh|13|25| He then lying on Jesus' breast saith unto him, Lord, who is it?

Joh|13|26| Jesus answered, He it is, to whom I shall give a sop, when I have dipped it. And when he had dipped the sop, he gave it to Judas Iscariot, the son of Simon.

Joh|13|27| And after the sop Satan entered into him. Then said Jesus unto him, That thou doest, do quickly.

Joh|13|28| Now no man at the table knew for what intent he spake this unto him.

Joh|13|29| For some of them thought, because Judas had the bag, that Jesus had said unto him, Buy those things that we have need of against the feast; or, that he should give something to the poor.

Joh|13|30| He then having received the sop went immediately out: and it was night.

Joh|13|31| Therefore, when he was gone out, Jesus said, Now is the Son of man glorified, and God is glorified in him.

Joh|13|32| If God be glorified in him, God shall also glorify him in himself, and shall straightway glorify him.

Joh|13|33| Little children, yet a little while I am with you. Ye shall seek me: and as I said unto the Jews, Whither I go, ye cannot come; so now I say to you.

Joh|13|34| A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another.

Joh|13|35| By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another.

Joh|13|36| Simon Peter said unto him, Lord, whither goest thou? Jesus answered him, Whither I go, thou canst not follow me now; but thou shalt follow me afterwards.

Joh|13|37| Peter said unto him, Lord, why cannot I follow thee now? I will lay down my life for thy sake.

Joh|13|38| Jesus answered him, Wilt thou lay down thy life for my sake? Verily, verily, I say unto thee, The cock shall not crow, till thou hast denied me thrice.

Joh|14|1| Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me.

Joh|14|2| In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.

Joh|14|3| And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.

Joh|14|4| And whither I go ye know, and the way ye know.

Joh|14|5| Thomas saith unto him, Lord, we know not whither thou goest; and how can we know the way?

Joh|14|6| Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

Joh|14|7| If ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also: and from henceforth ye know him, and have seen him.

Joh|14|8| Philip saith unto him, Lord, shew us the Father, and it sufficeth us.

Joh|14|9| Jesus saith unto him, Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me, Philip? he that hath seen me hath seen the Father; and how sayest thou then, Shew us the Father?

Joh|14|10| Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father in me?the words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself: but the Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works.

Joh|14|11| Believe me that I am in the Father, and the Father in me: or else believe me for the very works' sake.

Joh|14|12| Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.

Joh|14|13| And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.

Joh|14|14| If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it.

Joh|14|15| If ye love me, keep my commandments.

Joh|14|16| And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever;

Joh|14|17| Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.

Joh|14|18| I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you.

Joh|14|19| Yet a little while, and the world seeth me no more; but ye see me: because I live, ye shall live also.

Joh|14|20| At that day ye shall know that I am in my Father, and ye in me, and I in you.

Joh|14|21| He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him.

Joh|14|22| Judas saith unto him, not Iscariot, Lord, how is it that thou wilt manifest thyself unto us, and not unto the world?

Joh|14|23| Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him.

Joh|14|24| He that loveth me not keepeth not my sayings: and the word which ye hear is not mine, but the Father's which sent me.

Joh|14|25| These things have I spoken unto you, being yet present with you.

Joh|14|26| But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.

Joh|14|27| Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.

Joh|14|28| Ye have heard how I said unto you, I go away, and come again unto you. If ye loved me, ye would rejoice, because I said, I go unto the Father: for my Father is greater than I.

Joh|14|29| And now I have told you before it come to pass, that, when it is come to pass, ye might believe.

Joh|14|30| Hereafter I will not talk much with you: for the prince of this world cometh, and hath nothing in me.

Joh|14|31| But that the world may know that I love the Father; and as the Father gave me commandment, even so I do. Arise, let us go hence.

Joh|15|1| I am the true vine, and my Father is the husbandman.

Joh|15|2| Every branch in me that beareth not fruit he taketh away: and every branch that beareth fruit, he purgeth it, that it may bring forth more fruit.

Joh|15|3| Now ye are clean through the word which I have spoken unto you.

Joh|15|4| Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me.

Joh|15|5| I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.

Joh|15|6| If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned.

Joh|15|7| If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you.

Joh|15|8| Herein is my Father glorified, that ye bear much fruit; so shall ye be my disciples.

Joh|15|9| As the Father hath loved me, so have I loved you: continue ye in my love.

Joh|15|10| If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love; even as I have kept my Father's commandments, and abide in his love.

Joh|15|11| These things have I spoken unto you, that my joy might remain in you, and that your joy might be full.

Joh|15|12| This is my commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you.

Joh|15|13| Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.

Joh|15|14| Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you.

Joh|15|15| Henceforth I call you not servants; for the servant knoweth not what his lord doeth: but I have called you friends; for all things that I have heard of my Father I have made known unto you.

Joh|15|16| Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you.

Joh|15|17| These things I command you, that ye love one another.

Joh|15|18| If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you.

Joh|15|19| If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you.

Joh|15|20| Remember the word that I said unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord. If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you; if they have kept my saying, they will keep yours also.

Joh|15|21| But all these things will they do unto you for my name's sake, because they know not him that sent me.

Joh|15|22| If I had not come and spoken unto them, they had not had sin: but now they have no cloak for their sin.

Joh|15|23| He that hateth me hateth my Father also.

Joh|15|24| If I had not done among them the works which none other man did, they had not had sin: but now have they both seen and hated both me and my Father.

Joh|15|25| But this cometh to pass, that the word might be fulfilled that is written in their law, They hated me without a cause.

Joh|15|26| But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, even the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the Father, he shall testify of me:

Joh|15|27| And ye also shall bear witness, because ye have been with me from the beginning.

Joh|16|1| These things have I spoken unto you, that ye should not be offended.

Joh|16|2| They shall put you out of the synagogues: yea, the time cometh, that whosoever killeth you will think that he doeth God service.

Joh|16|3| And these things will they do unto you, because they have not known the Father, nor me.

Joh|16|4| But these things have I told you, that when the time shall come, ye may remember that I told you of them. And these things I said not unto you at the beginning, because I was with you.

Joh|16|5| But now I go my way to him that sent me; and none of you asketh me, Whither goest thou?

Joh|16|6| But because I have said these things unto you, sorrow hath filled your heart.

Joh|16|7| Nevertheless I tell you the truth; It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you.

Joh|16|8| And when he is come, he will reprove the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment:

Joh|16|9| Of sin, because they believe not on me;

Joh|16|10| Of righteousness, because I go to my Father, and ye see me no more;

Joh|16|11| Of judgment, because the prince of this world is judged.

Joh|16|12| I have yet many things to say unto you, but ye cannot bear them now.

Joh|16|13| Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come.

Joh|16|14| He shall glorify me: for he shall receive of mine, and shall shew it unto you.

Joh|16|15| All things that the Father hath are mine: therefore said I, that he shall take of mine, and shall shew it unto you.

Joh|16|16| A little while, and ye shall not see me: and again, a little while, and ye shall see me, because I go to the Father.

Joh|16|17| Then said some of his disciples among themselves, What is this that he saith unto us, A little while, and ye shall not see me: and again, a little while, and ye shall see me: and, Because I go to the Father?

Joh|16|18| They said therefore, What is this that he saith, A little while? we cannot tell what he saith.

Joh|16|19| Now Jesus knew that they were desirous to ask him, and said unto them, Do ye enquire among yourselves of that I said, A little while, and ye shall not see me: and again, a little while, and ye shall see me?

Joh|16|20| Verily, verily, I say unto you, That ye shall weep and lament, but the world shall rejoice: and ye shall be sorrowful, but your sorrow shall be turned into joy.

Joh|16|21| A woman when she is in travail hath sorrow, because her hour is come: but as soon as she is delivered of the child, she remembereth no more the anguish, for joy that a man is born into the world.

Joh|16|22| And ye now therefore have sorrow: but I will see you again, and your heart shall rejoice, and your joy no man taketh from you.

Joh|16|23| And in that day ye shall ask me nothing. Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall ask the Father in my name, he will give it you.

Joh|16|24| Hitherto have ye asked nothing in my name: ask, and ye shall receive, that your joy may be full.

Joh|16|25| These things have I spoken unto you in proverbs: but the time cometh, when I shall no more speak unto you in proverbs, but I shall shew you plainly of the Father.

Joh|16|26| At that day ye shall ask in my name: and I say not unto you, that I will pray the Father for you:

Joh|16|27| For the Father himself loveth you, because ye have loved me, and have believed that I came out from God.

Joh|16|28| I came forth from the Father, and am come into the world: again, I leave the world, and go to the Father.

Joh|16|29| His disciples said unto him, Lo, now speakest thou plainly, and speakest no proverb.

Joh|16|30| Now are we sure that thou knowest all things, and needest not that any man should ask thee: by this we believe that thou camest forth from God.

Joh|16|31| Jesus answered them, Do ye now believe?

Joh|16|32| Behold, the hour cometh, yea, is now come, that ye shall be scattered, every man to his own, and shall leave me alone: and yet I am not alone, because the Father is with me.

Joh|16|33| These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.

Joh|17|1| These words spake Jesus, and lifted up his eyes to heaven, and said, Father, the hour is come; glorify thy Son, that thy Son also may glorify thee:

Joh|17|2| As thou hast given him power over all flesh, that he should give eternal life to as many as thou hast given him.

Joh|17|3| And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.

Joh|17|4| I have glorified thee on the earth: I have finished the work which thou gavest me to do.

Joh|17|5| And now, O Father, glorify thou me with thine own self with the glory which I had with thee before the world was.

Joh|17|6| I have manifested thy name unto the men which thou gavest me out of the world: thine they were, and thou gavest them me; and they have kept thy word.

Joh|17|7| Now they have known that all things whatsoever thou hast given me are of thee.

Joh|17|8| For I have given unto them the words which thou gavest me; and they have received them, and have known surely that I came out from thee, and they have believed that thou didst send me.

Joh|17|9| I pray for them: I pray not for the world, but for them which thou hast given me; for they are thine.

Joh|17|10| And all mine are thine, and thine are mine; and I am glorified in them.

Joh|17|11| And now I am no more in the world, but these are in the world, and I come to thee. Holy Father, keep through thine own name those whom thou hast given me, that they may be one, as we are.

Joh|17|12| While I was with them in the world, I kept them in thy name: those that thou gavest me I have kept, and none of them is lost, but the son of perdition; that the scripture might be fulfilled.

Joh|17|13| And now come I to thee; and these things I speak in the world, that they might have my joy fulfilled in themselves.

Joh|17|14| I have given them thy word; and the world hath hated them, because they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.

Joh|17|15| I pray not that thou shouldest take them out of the world, but that thou shouldest keep them from the evil.

Joh|17|16| They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.

Joh|17|17| Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth.

Joh|17|18| As thou hast sent me into the world, even so have I also sent them into the world.

Joh|17|19| And for their sakes I sanctify myself, that they also might be sanctified through the truth.

Joh|17|20| Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through their word;

Joh|17|21| That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me.

Joh|17|22| And the glory which thou gavest me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one:

Joh|17|23| I in them, and thou in me, that they may be made perfect in one; and that the world may know that thou hast sent me, and hast loved them, as thou hast loved me.

Joh|17|24| Father, I will that they also, whom thou hast given me, be with me where I am; that they may behold my glory, which thou hast given me: for thou lovedst me before the foundation of the world.

Joh|17|25| O righteous Father, the world hath not known thee: but I have known thee, and these have known that thou hast sent me.

Joh|17|26| And I have declared unto them thy name, and will declare it: that the love wherewith thou hast loved me may be in them, and I in them.

Joh|18|1| When Jesus had spoken these words, he went forth with his disciples over the brook Cedron, where was a garden, into the which he entered, and his disciples.

Joh|18|2| And Judas also, which betrayed him, knew the place: for Jesus ofttimes resorted thither with his disciples.

Joh|18|3| Judas then, having received a band of men and officers from the chief priests and Pharisees, cometh thither with lanterns and torches and weapons.

Joh|18|4| Jesus therefore, knowing all things that should come upon him, went forth, and said unto them, Whom seek ye?

Joh|18|5| They answered him, Jesus of Nazareth. Jesus saith unto them, I am he. And Judas also, which betrayed him, stood with them.

Joh|18|6| As soon then as he had said unto them, I am he, they went backward, and fell to the ground.

Joh|18|7| Then asked he them again, Whom seek ye? And they said, Jesus of Nazareth.

Joh|18|8| Jesus answered, I have told you that I am he: if therefore ye seek me, let these go their way:

Joh|18|9| That the saying might be fulfilled, which he spake, Of them which thou gavest me have I lost none.

Joh|18|10| Then Simon Peter having a sword drew it, and smote the high priest's servant, and cut off his right ear. The servant's name was Malchus.

Joh|18|11| Then said Jesus unto Peter, Put up thy sword into the sheath: the cup which my Father hath given me, shall I not drink it?

Joh|18|12| Then the band and the captain and officers of the Jews took Jesus, and bound him,

Joh|18|13| And led him away to Annas first; for he was father in law to Caiaphas, which was the high priest that same year.

Joh|18|14| Now Caiaphas was he, which gave counsel to the Jews, that it was expedient that one man should die for the people.

Joh|18|15| And Simon Peter followed Jesus, and so did another disciple: that disciple was known unto the high priest, and went in with Jesus into the palace of the high priest.

Joh|18|16| But Peter stood at the door without. Then went out that other disciple, which was known unto the high priest, and spake unto her that kept the door, and brought in Peter.

Joh|18|17| Then saith the damsel that kept the door unto Peter, Art not thou also one of this man's disciples? He saith, I am not.

Joh|18|18| And the servants and officers stood there, who had made a fire of coals; for it was cold: and they warmed themselves: and Peter stood with them, and warmed himself.

Joh|18|19| The high priest then asked Jesus of his disciples, and of his doctrine.

Joh|18|20| Jesus answered him, I spake openly to the world; I ever taught in the synagogue, and in the temple, whither the Jews always resort; and in secret have I said nothing.

Joh|18|21| Why askest thou me? ask them which heard me, what I have said unto them: behold, they know what I said.

Joh|18|22| And when he had thus spoken, one of the officers which stood by struck Jesus with the palm of his hand, saying, Answerest thou the high priest so?

Joh|18|23| Jesus answered him, If I have spoken evil, bear witness of the evil: but if well, why smitest thou me?

Joh|18|24| Now Annas had sent him bound unto Caiaphas the high priest.

Joh|18|25| And Simon Peter stood and warmed himself. They said therefore unto him, Art not thou also one of his disciples? He denied it, and said, I am not.

Joh|18|26| One of the servants of the high priest, being his kinsman whose ear Peter cut off, saith, Did not I see thee in the garden with him?

Joh|18|27| Peter then denied again: and immediately the cock crew.

Joh|18|28| Then led they Jesus from Caiaphas unto the hall of judgment: and it was early; and they themselves went not into the judgment hall, lest they should be defiled; but that they might eat the passover.

Joh|18|29| Pilate then went out unto them, and said, What accusation bring ye against this man?

Joh|18|30| They answered and said unto him, If he were not a malefactor, we would not have delivered him up unto thee.

Joh|18|31| Then said Pilate unto them, Take ye him, and judge him according to your law. The Jews therefore said unto him, It is not lawful for us to put any man to death:

Joh|18|32| That the saying of Jesus might be fulfilled, which he spake, signifying what death he should die.

Joh|18|33| Then Pilate entered into the judgment hall again, and called Jesus, and said unto him, Art thou the King of the Jews?

Joh|18|34| Jesus answered him, Sayest thou this thing of thyself, or did others tell it thee of me?

Joh|18|35| Pilate answered, Am I a Jew? Thine own nation and the chief priests have delivered thee unto me: what hast thou done?

Joh|18|36| Jesus answered, My kingdom is not of this world: if my kingdom were of this world, then would my servants fight, that I should not be delivered to the Jews: but now is my kingdom not from hence.

Joh|18|37| Pilate therefore said unto him, Art thou a king then? Jesus answered, Thou sayest that I am a king. To this end was I born, and for this cause came I into the world, that I should bear witness unto the truth. Every one that is of the truth heareth my voice.

Joh|18|38| Pilate saith unto him, What is truth? And when he had said this, he went out again unto the Jews, and saith unto them, I find in him no fault at all.

Joh|18|39| But ye have a custom, that I should release unto you one at the passover: will ye therefore that I release unto you the King of the Jews?

Joh|18|40| Then cried they all again, saying, Not this man, but Barabbas. Now Barabbas was a robber.

Joh|19|1| Then Pilate therefore took Jesus, and scourged him.

Joh|19|2| And the soldiers platted a crown of thorns, and put it on his head, and they put on him a purple robe,

Joh|19|3| And said, Hail, King of the Jews! and they smote him with their hands.

Joh|19|4| Pilate therefore went forth again, and saith unto them, Behold, I bring him forth to you, that ye may know that I find no fault in him.

Joh|19|5| Then came Jesus forth, wearing the crown of thorns, and the purple robe. And Pilate saith unto them, Behold the man!

Joh|19|6| When the chief priests therefore and officers saw him, they cried out, saying, Crucify him, crucify him. Pilate saith unto them, Take ye him, and crucify him: for I find no fault in him.

Joh|19|7| The Jews answered him, We have a law, and by our law he ought to die, because he made himself the Son of God.

Joh|19|8| When Pilate therefore heard that saying, he was the more afraid;

Joh|19|9| And went again into the judgment hall, and saith unto Jesus, Whence art thou? But Jesus gave him no answer.

Joh|19|10| Then saith Pilate unto him, Speakest thou not unto me? knowest thou not that I have power to crucify thee, and have power to release thee?

Joh|19|11| Jesus answered, Thou couldest have no power at all against me, except it were given thee from above: therefore he that delivered me unto thee hath the greater sin.

Joh|19|12| And from thenceforth Pilate sought to release him: but the Jews cried out, saying, If thou let this man go, thou art not Caesar's friend: whosoever maketh himself a king speaketh against Caesar.

Joh|19|13| When Pilate therefore heard that saying, he brought Jesus forth, and sat down in the judgment seat in a place that is called the Pavement, but in the Hebrew, Gabbatha.

Joh|19|14| And it was the preparation of the passover, and about the sixth hour: and he saith unto the Jews, Behold your King!

Joh|19|15| But they cried out, Away with him, away with him, crucify him. Pilate saith unto them, Shall I crucify your King? The chief priests answered, We have no king but Caesar.

Joh|19|16| Then delivered he him therefore unto them to be crucified. And they took Jesus, and led him away.

Joh|19|17| And he bearing his cross went forth into a place called the place of a skull, which is called in the Hebrew Golgotha:

Joh|19|18| Where they crucified him, and two other with him, on either side one, and Jesus in the midst.

Joh|19|19| And Pilate wrote a title, and put it on the cross. And the writing was JESUS OF NAZARETH THE KING OF THE JEWS.

Joh|19|20| This title then read many of the Jews: for the place where Jesus was crucified was nigh to the city: and it was written in Hebrew, and Greek, and Latin.

Joh|19|21| Then said the chief priests of the Jews to Pilate, Write not, The King of the Jews; but that he said, I am King of the Jews.

Joh|19|22| Pilate answered, What I have written I have written.

Joh|19|23| Then the soldiers, when they had crucified Jesus, took his garments, and made four parts, to every soldier a part; and also his coat: now the coat was without seam, woven from the top throughout.

Joh|19|24| They said therefore among themselves, Let us not rend it, but cast lots for it, whose it shall be: that the scripture might be fulfilled, which saith, They parted my raiment among them, and for my vesture they did cast lots. These things therefore the soldiers did.

Joh|19|25| Now there stood by the cross of Jesus his mother, and his mother's sister, Mary the wife of Cleophas, and Mary Magdalene.

Joh|19|26| When Jesus therefore saw his mother, and the disciple standing by, whom he loved, he saith unto his mother, Woman, behold thy son!

Joh|19|27| Then saith he to the disciple, Behold thy mother! And from that hour that disciple took her unto his own home.

Joh|19|28| After this, Jesus knowing that all things were now accomplished, that the scripture might be fulfilled, saith, I thirst.

Joh|19|29| Now there was set a vessel full of vinegar: and they filled a spunge with vinegar, and put it upon hyssop, and put it to his mouth.

Joh|19|30| When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, he said, It is finished: and he bowed his head, and gave up the ghost.

Joh|19|31| The Jews therefore, because it was the preparation, that the bodies should not remain upon the cross on the sabbath day, (for that sabbath day was an high day,) besought Pilate that their legs might be broken, and that they might be taken away.

Joh|19|32| Then came the soldiers, and brake the legs of the first, and of the other which was crucified with him.

Joh|19|33| But when they came to Jesus, and saw that he was dead already, they brake not his legs:

Joh|19|34| But one of the soldiers with a spear pierced his side, and forthwith came there out blood and water.

Joh|19|35| And he that saw it bare record, and his record is true: and he knoweth that he saith true, that ye might believe.

Joh|19|36| For these things were done, that the scripture should be fulfilled, A bone of him shall not be broken.

Joh|19|37| And again another scripture saith, They shall look on him whom they pierced.

Joh|19|38| And after this Joseph of Arimathaea, being a disciple of Jesus, but secretly for fear of the Jews, besought Pilate that he might take away the body of Jesus: and Pilate gave him leave. He came therefore, and took the body of Jesus.

Joh|19|39| And there came also Nicodemus, which at the first came to Jesus by night, and brought a mixture of myrrh and aloes, about an hundred pound weight.

Joh|19|40| Then took they the body of Jesus, and wound it in linen clothes with the spices, as the manner of the Jews is to bury.

Joh|19|41| Now in the place where he was crucified there was a garden; and in the garden a new sepulchre, wherein was never man yet laid.

Joh|19|42| There laid they Jesus therefore because of the Jews' preparation day; for the sepulchre was nigh at hand.

Joh|20|1| The first day of the week cometh Mary Magdalene early, when it was yet dark, unto the sepulchre, and seeth the stone taken away from the sepulchre.

Joh|20|2| Then she runneth, and cometh to Simon Peter, and to the other disciple, whom Jesus loved, and saith unto them, They have taken away the LORD out of the sepulchre, and we know not where they have laid him.

Joh|20|3| Peter therefore went forth, and that other disciple, and came to the sepulchre.

Joh|20|4| So they ran both together: and the other disciple did outrun Peter, and came first to the sepulchre.

Joh|20|5| And he stooping down, and looking in, saw the linen clothes lying; yet went he not in.

Joh|20|6| Then cometh Simon Peter following him, and went into the sepulchre, and seeth the linen clothes lie,

Joh|20|7| And the napkin, that was about his head, not lying with the linen clothes, but wrapped together in a place by itself.

Joh|20|8| Then went in also that other disciple, which came first to the sepulchre, and he saw, and believed.

Joh|20|9| For as yet they knew not the scripture, that he must rise again from the dead.

Joh|20|10| Then the disciples went away again unto their own home.

Joh|20|11| But Mary stood without at the sepulchre weeping: and as she wept, she stooped down, and looked into the sepulchre,

Joh|20|12| And seeth two angels in white sitting, the one at the head, and the other at the feet, where the body of Jesus had lain.

Joh|20|13| And they say unto her, Woman, why weepest thou? She saith unto them, Because they have taken away my LORD, and I know not where they have laid him.

Joh|20|14| And when she had thus said, she turned herself back, and saw Jesus standing, and knew not that it was Jesus.

Joh|20|15| Jesus saith unto her, Woman, why weepest thou? whom seekest thou?She, supposing him to be the gardener, saith unto him, Sir, if thou have borne him hence, tell me where thou hast laid him, and I will take him away.

Joh|20|16| Jesus saith unto her, Mary. She turned herself, and saith unto him, Rabboni; which is to say, Master.

Joh|20|17| Jesus saith unto her, Touch me not; for I am not yet ascended to my Father: but go to my brethren, and say unto them, I ascend unto my Father, and your Father; and to my God, and your God.

Joh|20|18| Mary Magdalene came and told the disciples that she had seen the LORD, and that he had spoken these things unto her.

Joh|20|19| Then the same day at evening, being the first day of the week, when the doors were shut where the disciples were assembled for fear of the Jews, came Jesus and stood in the midst, and saith unto them, Peace be unto you.

Joh|20|20| And when he had so said, he shewed unto them his hands and his side. Then were the disciples glad, when they saw the LORD.

Joh|20|21| Then said Jesus to them again, Peace be unto you: as my Father hath sent me, even so send I you.

Joh|20|22| And when he had said this, he breathed on them, and saith unto them, Receive ye the Holy Ghost:

Joh|20|23| Whose soever sins ye remit, they are remitted unto them; and whose soever sins ye retain, they are retained.

Joh|20|24| But Thomas, one of the twelve, called Didymus, was not with them when Jesus came.

Joh|20|25| The other disciples therefore said unto him, We have seen the LORD. But he said unto them, Except I shall see in his hands the print of the nails, and put my finger into the print of the nails, and thrust my hand into his side, I will not believe.

Joh|20|26| And after eight days again his disciples were within, and Thomas with them: then came Jesus, the doors being shut, and stood in the midst, and said, Peace be unto you.

Joh|20|27| Then saith he to Thomas, Reach hither thy finger, and behold my hands; and reach hither thy hand, and thrust it into my side: and be not faithless, but believing.

Joh|20|28| And Thomas answered and said unto him, My LORD and my God.

Joh|20|29| Jesus saith unto him, Thomas, because thou hast seen me, thou hast believed: blessed are they that have not seen, and yet have believed.

Joh|20|30| And many other signs truly did Jesus in the presence of his disciples, which are not written in this book:

Joh|20|31| But these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing ye might have life through his name.

Joh|21|1| After these things Jesus shewed himself again to the disciples at the sea of Tiberias; and on this wise shewed he himself.

Joh|21|2| There were together Simon Peter, and Thomas called Didymus, and Nathanael of Cana in Galilee, and the sons of Zebedee, and two other of his disciples.

Joh|21|3| Simon Peter saith unto them, I go a fishing. They say unto him, We also go with thee. They went forth, and entered into a ship immediately; and that night they caught nothing.

Joh|21|4| But when the morning was now come, Jesus stood on the shore: but the disciples knew not that it was Jesus.

Joh|21|5| Then Jesus saith unto them, Children, have ye any meat? They answered him, No.

Joh|21|6| And he said unto them, Cast the net on the right side of the ship, and ye shall find. They cast therefore, and now they were not able to draw it for the multitude of fishes.

Joh|21|7| Therefore that disciple whom Jesus loved saith unto Peter, It is the Lord. Now when Simon Peter heard that it was the Lord, he girt his fisher's coat unto him, (for he was naked,) and did cast himself into the sea.

Joh|21|8| And the other disciples came in a little ship; (for they were not far from land, but as it were two hundred cubits,) dragging the net with fishes.

Joh|21|9| As soon then as they were come to land, they saw a fire of coals there, and fish laid thereon, and bread.

Joh|21|10| Jesus saith unto them, Bring of the fish which ye have now caught.

Joh|21|11| Simon Peter went up, and drew the net to land full of great fishes, an hundred and fifty and three: and for all there were so many, yet was not the net broken.

Joh|21|12| Jesus saith unto them, Come and dine. And none of the disciples durst ask him, Who art thou? knowing that it was the Lord.

Joh|21|13| Jesus then cometh, and taketh bread, and giveth them, and fish likewise.

Joh|21|14| This is now the third time that Jesus shewed himself to his disciples, after that he was risen from the dead.

Joh|21|15| So when they had dined, Jesus saith to Simon Peter, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me more than these? He saith unto him, Yea, Lord; thou knowest that I love thee. He saith unto him, Feed my lambs.

Joh|21|16| He saith to him again the second time, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me? He saith unto him, Yea, Lord; thou knowest that I love thee. He saith unto him, Feed my sheep.

Joh|21|17| He saith unto him the third time, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me? Peter was grieved because he said unto him the third time, Lovest thou me? And he said unto him, Lord, thou knowest all things; thou knowest that I love thee. Jesus saith unto him, Feed my sheep.

Joh|21|18| Verily, verily, I say unto thee, When thou wast young, thou girdest thyself, and walkedst whither thou wouldest: but when thou shalt be old, thou shalt stretch forth thy hands, and another shall gird thee, and carry thee whither thou wouldest not.

Joh|21|19| This spake he, signifying by what death he should glorify God. And when he had spoken this, he saith unto him, Follow me.

Joh|21|20| Then Peter, turning about, seeth the disciple whom Jesus loved following; which also leaned on his breast at supper, and said, Lord, which is he that betrayeth thee?

Joh|21|21| Peter seeing him saith to Jesus, Lord, and what shall this man do?

Joh|21|22| Jesus saith unto him, If I will that he tarry till I come, what is that to thee? follow thou me.

Joh|21|23| Then went this saying abroad among the brethren, that that disciple should not die: yet Jesus said not unto him, He shall not die; but, If I will that he tarry till I come, what is that to thee?

Joh|21|24| This is the disciple which testifieth of these things, and wrote these things: and we know that his testimony is true.

Joh|21|25| And there are also many other things which Jesus did, the which, if they should be written every one, I suppose that even the world itself could not contain the books that should be written. Amen.

Rev|1|1| The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave unto him, to shew unto his servants things which must shortly come to pass; and he sent and signified it by his angel unto his servant John:

Rev|1|2| Who bare record of the word of God, and of the testimony of Jesus Christ, and of all things that he saw.

Rev|1|3| Blessed is he that readeth, and they that hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written therein: for the time is at hand.

Rev|1|4| John to the seven churches which are in Asia: Grace be unto you, and peace, from him which is, and which was, and which is to come; and from the seven Spirits which are before his throne;

Rev|1|5| And from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, and the first begotten of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth. Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood,

Rev|1|6| And hath made us kings and priests unto God and his Father; to him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.

Rev|1|7| Behold, he cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they also which pierced him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him. Even so, Amen.

Rev|1|8| I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty.

Rev|1|9| I John, who also am your brother, and companion in tribulation, and in the kingdom and patience of Jesus Christ, was in the isle that is called Patmos, for the word of God, and for the testimony of Jesus Christ.

Rev|1|10| I was in the Spirit on the Lord's day, and heard behind me a great voice, as of a trumpet,

Rev|1|11| Saying, I am Alpha and Omega, the first and the last: and, What thou seest, write in a book, and send it unto the seven churches which are in Asia; unto Ephesus, and unto Smyrna, and unto Pergamos, and unto Thyatira, and unto Sardis, and unto Philadelphia, and unto Laodicea.

Rev|1|12| And I turned to see the voice that spake with me. And being turned, I saw seven golden candlesticks;

Rev|1|13| And in the midst of the seven candlesticks one like unto the Son of man, clothed with a garment down to the foot, and girt about the paps with a golden girdle.

Rev|1|14| His head and his hairs were white like wool, as white as snow; and his eyes were as a flame of fire;

Rev|1|15| And his feet like unto fine brass, as if they burned in a furnace; and his voice as the sound of many waters.

Rev|1|16| And he had in his right hand seven stars: and out of his mouth went a sharp twoedged sword: and his countenance was as the sun shineth in his strength.

Rev|1|17| And when I saw him, I fell at his feet as dead. And he laid his right hand upon me, saying unto me, Fear not; I am the first and the last:

Rev|1|18| I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death.

Rev|1|19| Write the things which thou hast seen, and the things which are, and the things which shall be hereafter;

Rev|1|20| The mystery of the seven stars which thou sawest in my right hand, and the seven golden candlesticks. The seven stars are the angels of the seven churches: and the seven candlesticks which thou sawest are the seven churches.

Rev|2|1| Unto the angel of the church of Ephesus write; These things saith he that holdeth the seven stars in his right hand, who walketh in the midst of the seven golden candlesticks;

Rev|2|2| I know thy works, and thy labour, and thy patience, and how thou canst not bear them which are evil: and thou hast tried them which say they are apostles, and are not, and hast found them liars:

Rev|2|3| And hast borne, and hast patience, and for my name's sake hast laboured, and hast not fainted.

Rev|2|4| Nevertheless I have somewhat against thee, because thou hast left thy first love.

Rev|2|5| Remember therefore from whence thou art fallen, and repent, and do the first works; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will remove thy candlestick out of his place, except thou repent.

Rev|2|6| But this thou hast, that thou hatest the deeds of the Nicolaitanes, which I also hate.

Rev|2|7| He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the tree of life, which is in the midst of the paradise of God.

Rev|2|8| And unto the angel of the church in Smyrna write; These things saith the first and the last, which was dead, and is alive;

Rev|2|9| I know thy works, and tribulation, and poverty, (but thou art rich) and I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan.

Rev|2|10| Fear none of those things which thou shalt suffer: behold, the devil shall cast some of you into prison, that ye may be tried; and ye shall have tribulation ten days: be thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee a crown of life.

Rev|2|11| He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; He that overcometh shall not be hurt of the second death.

Rev|2|12| And to the angel of the church in Pergamos write; These things saith he which hath the sharp sword with two edges;

Rev|2|13| I know thy works, and where thou dwellest, even where Satan's seat is: and thou holdest fast my name, and hast not denied my faith, even in those days wherein Antipas was my faithful martyr, who was slain among you, where Satan dwelleth.

Rev|2|14| But I have a few things against thee, because thou hast there them that hold the doctrine of Balaam, who taught Balac to cast a stumblingblock before the children of Israel, to eat things sacrificed unto idols, and to commit fornication.

Rev|2|15| So hast thou also them that hold the doctrine of the Nicolaitanes, which thing I hate.

Rev|2|16| Repent; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will fight against them with the sword of my mouth.

Rev|2|17| He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the hidden manna, and will give him a white stone, and in the stone a new name written, which no man knoweth saving he that receiveth it.

Rev|2|18| And unto the angel of the church in Thyatira write; These things saith the Son of God, who hath his eyes like unto a flame of fire, and his feet are like fine brass;

Rev|2|19| I know thy works, and charity, and service, and faith, and thy patience, and thy works; and the last to be more than the first.

Rev|2|20| Notwithstanding I have a few things against thee, because thou sufferest that woman Jezebel, which calleth herself a prophetess, to teach and to seduce my servants to commit fornication, and to eat things sacrificed unto idols.

Rev|2|21| And I gave her space to repent of her fornication; and she repented not.

Rev|2|22| Behold, I will cast her into a bed, and them that commit adultery with her into great tribulation, except they repent of their deeds.

Rev|2|23| And I will kill her children with death; and all the churches shall know that I am he which searcheth the reins and hearts: and I will give unto every one of you according to your works.

Rev|2|24| But unto you I say, and unto the rest in Thyatira, as many as have not this doctrine, and which have not known the depths of Satan, as they speak; I will put upon you none other burden.

Rev|2|25| But that which ye have already hold fast till I come.

Rev|2|26| And he that overcometh, and keepeth my works unto the end, to him will I give power over the nations:

Rev|2|27| And he shall rule them with a rod of iron; as the vessels of a potter shall they be broken to shivers: even as I received of my Father.

Rev|2|28| And I will give him the morning star.

Rev|2|29| He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.

Rev|3|1| And unto the angel of the church in Sardis write; These things saith he that hath the seven Spirits of God, and the seven stars; I know thy works, that thou hast a name that thou livest, and art dead.

Rev|3|2| Be watchful, and strengthen the things which remain, that are ready to die: for I have not found thy works perfect before God.

Rev|3|3| Remember therefore how thou hast received and heard, and hold fast, and repent. If therefore thou shalt not watch, I will come on thee as a thief, and thou shalt not know what hour I will come upon thee.

Rev|3|4| Thou hast a few names even in Sardis which have not defiled their garments; and they shall walk with me in white: for they are worthy.

Rev|3|5| He that overcometh, the same shall be clothed in white raiment; and I will not blot out his name out of the book of life, but I will confess his name before my Father, and before his angels.

Rev|3|6| He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.

Rev|3|7| And to the angel of the church in Philadelphia write; These things saith he that is holy, he that is true, he that hath the key of David, he that openeth, and no man shutteth; and shutteth, and no man openeth;

Rev|3|8| I know thy works: behold, I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it: for thou hast a little strength, and hast kept my word, and hast not denied my name.

Rev|3|9| Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before thy feet, and to know that I have loved thee.

Rev|3|10| Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth.

Rev|3|11| Behold, I come quickly: hold that fast which thou hast, that no man take thy crown.

Rev|3|12| Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the temple of my God, and he shall go no more out: and I will write upon him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, which is new Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from my God: and I will write upon him my new name.

Rev|3|13| He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.

Rev|3|14| And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write; These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God;

Rev|3|15| I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot.

Rev|3|16| So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.

Rev|3|17| Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked:

Rev|3|18| I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see.

Rev|3|19| As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent.

Rev|3|20| Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.

Rev|3|21| To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne.

Rev|3|22| He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.

Rev|4|1| After this I looked, and, behold, a door was opened in heaven: and the first voice which I heard was as it were of a trumpet talking with me; which said, Come up hither, and I will shew thee things which must be hereafter.

Rev|4|2| And immediately I was in the spirit: and, behold, a throne was set in heaven, and one sat on the throne.

Rev|4|3| And he that sat was to look upon like a jasper and a sardine stone: and there was a rainbow round about the throne, in sight like unto an emerald.

Rev|4|4| And round about the throne were four and twenty seats: and upon the seats I saw four and twenty elders sitting, clothed in white raiment; and they had on their heads crowns of gold.

Rev|4|5| And out of the throne proceeded lightnings and thunderings and voices: and there were seven lamps of fire burning before the throne, which are the seven Spirits of God.

Rev|4|6| And before the throne there was a sea of glass like unto crystal: and in the midst of the throne, and round about the throne, were four beasts full of eyes before and behind.

Rev|4|7| And the first beast was like a lion, and the second beast like a calf, and the third beast had a face as a man, and the fourth beast was like a flying eagle.

Rev|4|8| And the four beasts had each of them six wings about him; and they were full of eyes within: and they rest not day and night, saying, Holy, holy, holy, LORD God Almighty, which was, and is, and is to come.

Rev|4|9| And when those beasts give glory and honour and thanks to him that sat on the throne, who liveth for ever and ever,

Rev|4|10| The four and twenty elders fall down before him that sat on the throne, and worship him that liveth for ever and ever, and cast their crowns before the throne, saying,

Rev|4|11| Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created.

Rev|5|1| And I saw in the right hand of him that sat on the throne a book written within and on the backside, sealed with seven seals.

Rev|5|2| And I saw a strong angel proclaiming with a loud voice, Who is worthy to open the book, and to loose the seals thereof?

Rev|5|3| And no man in heaven, nor in earth, neither under the earth, was able to open the book, neither to look thereon.

Rev|5|4| And I wept much, because no man was found worthy to open and to read the book, neither to look thereon.

Rev|5|5| And one of the elders saith unto me, Weep not: behold, the Lion of the tribe of Juda, the Root of David, hath prevailed to open the book, and to loose the seven seals thereof.

Rev|5|6| And I beheld, and, lo, in the midst of the throne and of the four beasts, and in the midst of the elders, stood a Lamb as it had been slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God sent forth into all the earth.

Rev|5|7| And he came and took the book out of the right hand of him that sat upon the throne.

Rev|5|8| And when he had taken the book, the four beasts and four and twenty elders fell down before the Lamb, having every one of them harps, and golden vials full of odours, which are the prayers of saints.

Rev|5|9| And they sung a new song, saying, Thou art worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof: for thou wast slain, and hast redeemed us to God by thy blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation;

Rev|5|10| And hast made us unto our God kings and priests: and we shall reign on the earth.

Rev|5|11| And I beheld, and I heard the voice of many angels round about the throne and the beasts and the elders: and the number of them was ten thousand times ten thousand, and thousands of thousands;

Rev|5|12| Saying with a loud voice, Worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive power, and riches, and wisdom, and strength, and honour, and glory, and blessing.

Rev|5|13| And every creature which is in heaven, and on the earth, and under the earth, and such as are in the sea, and all that are in them, heard I saying, Blessing, and honour, and glory, and power, be unto him that sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb for ever and ever.

Rev|5|14| And the four beasts said, Amen. And the four and twenty elders fell down and worshipped him that liveth for ever and ever.

Rev|6|1| And I saw when the Lamb opened one of the seals, and I heard, as it were the noise of thunder, one of the four beasts saying, Come and see.

Rev|6|2| And I saw, and behold a white horse: and he that sat on him had a bow; and a crown was given unto him: and he went forth conquering, and to conquer.

Rev|6|3| And when he had opened the second seal, I heard the second beast say, Come and see.

Rev|6|4| And there went out another horse that was red: and power was given to him that sat thereon to take peace from the earth, and that they should kill one another: and there was given unto him a great sword.

Rev|6|5| And when he had opened the third seal, I heard the third beast say, Come and see. And I beheld, and lo a black horse; and he that sat on him had a pair of balances in his hand.

Rev|6|6| And I heard a voice in the midst of the four beasts say, A measure of wheat for a penny, and three measures of barley for a penny; and see thou hurt not the oil and the wine.

Rev|6|7| And when he had opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth beast say, Come and see.

Rev|6|8| And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth.

Rev|6|9| And when he had opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of them that were slain for the word of God, and for the testimony which they held:

Rev|6|10| And they cried with a loud voice, saying, How long, O Lord, holy and true, dost thou not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth?

Rev|6|11| And white robes were given unto every one of them; and it was said unto them, that they should rest yet for a little season, until their fellowservants also and their brethren, that should be killed as they were, should be fulfilled.

Rev|6|12| And I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal, and, lo, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood;

Rev|6|13| And the stars of heaven fell unto the earth, even as a fig tree casteth her untimely figs, when she is shaken of a mighty wind.

Rev|6|14| And the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together; and every mountain and island were moved out of their places.

Rev|6|15| And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bondman, and every free man, hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains;

Rev|6|16| And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb:

Rev|6|17| For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?

Rev|7|1| And after these things I saw four angels standing on the four corners of the earth, holding the four winds of the earth, that the wind should not blow on the earth, nor on the sea, nor on any tree.

Rev|7|2| And I saw another angel ascending from the east, having the seal of the living God: and he cried with a loud voice to the four angels, to whom it was given to hurt the earth and the sea,

Rev|7|3| Saying, Hurt not the earth, neither the sea, nor the trees, till we have sealed the servants of our God in their foreheads.

Rev|7|4| And I heard the number of them which were sealed: and there were sealed an hundred and forty and four thousand of all the tribes of the children of Israel.

Rev|7|5| Of the tribe of Juda were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Reuben were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Gad were sealed twelve thousand.

Rev|7|6| Of the tribe of Aser were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Nephthalim were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Manasses were sealed twelve thousand.

Rev|7|7| Of the tribe of Simeon were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Levi were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Issachar were sealed twelve thousand.

Rev|7|8| Of the tribe of Zabulon were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Joseph were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Benjamin were sealed twelve thousand.

Rev|7|9| After this I beheld, and, lo, a great multitude, which no man could number, of all nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongues, stood before the throne, and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, and palms in their hands;

Rev|7|10| And cried with a loud voice, saying, Salvation to our God which sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb.

Rev|7|11| And all the angels stood round about the throne, and about the elders and the four beasts, and fell before the throne on their faces, and worshipped God,

Rev|7|12| Saying, Amen: Blessing, and glory, and wisdom, and thanksgiving, and honour, and power, and might, be unto our God for ever and ever. Amen.

Rev|7|13| And one of the elders answered, saying unto me, What are these which are arrayed in white robes? and whence came they?

Rev|7|14| And I said unto him, Sir, thou knowest. And he said to me, These are they which came out of great tribulation, and have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.

Rev|7|15| Therefore are they before the throne of God, and serve him day and night in his temple: and he that sitteth on the throne shall dwell among them.

Rev|7|16| They shall hunger no more, neither thirst any more; neither shall the sun light on them, nor any heat.

Rev|7|17| For the Lamb which is in the midst of the throne shall feed them, and shall lead them unto living fountains of waters: and God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes.

Rev|8|1| And when he had opened the seventh seal, there was silence in heaven about the space of half an hour.

Rev|8|2| And I saw the seven angels which stood before God; and to them were given seven trumpets.

Rev|8|3| And another angel came and stood at the altar, having a golden censer; and there was given unto him much incense, that he should offer it with the prayers of all saints upon the golden altar which was before the throne.

Rev|8|4| And the smoke of the incense, which came with the prayers of the saints, ascended up before God out of the angel's hand.

Rev|8|5| And the angel took the censer, and filled it with fire of the altar, and cast it into the earth: and there were voices, and thunderings, and lightnings, and an earthquake.

Rev|8|6| And the seven angels which had the seven trumpets prepared themselves to sound.

Rev|8|7| The first angel sounded, and there followed hail and fire mingled with blood, and they were cast upon the earth: and the third part of trees was burnt up, and all green grass was burnt up.

Rev|8|8| And the second angel sounded, and as it were a great mountain burning with fire was cast into the sea: and the third part of the sea became blood;

Rev|8|9| And the third part of the creatures which were in the sea, and had life, died; and the third part of the ships were destroyed.

Rev|8|10| And the third angel sounded, and there fell a great star from heaven, burning as it were a lamp, and it fell upon the third part of the rivers, and upon the fountains of waters;

Rev|8|11| And the name of the star is called Wormwood: and the third part of the waters became wormwood; and many men died of the waters, because they were made bitter.

Rev|8|12| And the fourth angel sounded, and the third part of the sun was smitten, and the third part of the moon, and the third part of the stars; so as the third part of them was darkened, and the day shone not for a third part of it, and the night likewise.

Rev|8|13| And I beheld, and heard an angel flying through the midst of heaven, saying with a loud voice, Woe, woe, woe, to the inhabiters of the earth by reason of the other voices of the trumpet of the three angels, which are yet to sound!

Rev|9|1| And the fifth angel sounded, and I saw a star fall from heaven unto the earth: and to him was given the key of the bottomless pit.

Rev|9|2| And he opened the bottomless pit; and there arose a smoke out of the pit, as the smoke of a great furnace; and the sun and the air were darkened by reason of the smoke of the pit.

Rev|9|3| And there came out of the smoke locusts upon the earth: and unto them was given power, as the scorpions of the earth have power.

Rev|9|4| And it was commanded them that they should not hurt the grass of the earth, neither any green thing, neither any tree; but only those men which have not the seal of God in their foreheads.

Rev|9|5| And to them it was given that they should not kill them, but that they should be tormented five months: and their torment was as the torment of a scorpion, when he striketh a man.

Rev|9|6| And in those days shall men seek death, and shall not find it; and shall desire to die, and death shall flee from them.

Rev|9|7| And the shapes of the locusts were like unto horses prepared unto battle; and on their heads were as it were crowns like gold, and their faces were as the faces of men.

Rev|9|8| And they had hair as the hair of women, and their teeth were as the teeth of lions.

Rev|9|9| And they had breastplates, as it were breastplates of iron; and the sound of their wings was as the sound of chariots of many horses running to battle.

Rev|9|10| And they had tails like unto scorpions, and there were stings in their tails: and their power was to hurt men five months.

Rev|9|11| And they had a king over them, which is the angel of the bottomless pit, whose name in the Hebrew tongue is Abaddon, but in the Greek tongue hath his name Apollyon.

Rev|9|12| One woe is past; and, behold, there come two woes more hereafter.

Rev|9|13| And the sixth angel sounded, and I heard a voice from the four horns of the golden altar which is before God,

Rev|9|14| Saying to the sixth angel which had the trumpet, Loose the four angels which are bound in the great river Euphrates.

Rev|9|15| And the four angels were loosed, which were prepared for an hour, and a day, and a month, and a year, for to slay the third part of men.

Rev|9|16| And the number of the army of the horsemen were two hundred thousand thousand: and I heard the number of them.

Rev|9|17| And thus I saw the horses in the vision, and them that sat on them, having breastplates of fire, and of jacinth, and brimstone: and the heads of the horses were as the heads of lions; and out of their mouths issued fire and smoke and brimstone.

Rev|9|18| By these three was the third part of men killed, by the fire, and by the smoke, and by the brimstone, which issued out of their mouths.

Rev|9|19| For their power is in their mouth, and in their tails: for their tails were like unto serpents, and had heads, and with them they do hurt.

Rev|9|20| And the rest of the men which were not killed by these plagues yet repented not of the works of their hands, that they should not worship devils, and idols of gold, and silver, and brass, and stone, and of wood: which neither can see, nor hear, nor walk:

Rev|9|21| Neither repented they of their murders, nor of their sorceries, nor of their fornication, nor of their thefts.

Rev|10|1| And I saw another mighty angel come down from heaven, clothed with a cloud: and a rainbow was upon his head, and his face was as it were the sun, and his feet as pillars of fire:

Rev|10|2| And he had in his hand a little book open: and he set his right foot upon the sea, and his left foot on the earth,

Rev|10|3| And cried with a loud voice, as when a lion roareth: and when he had cried, seven thunders uttered their voices.

Rev|10|4| And when the seven thunders had uttered their voices, I was about to write: and I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, Seal up those things which the seven thunders uttered, and write them not.

Rev|10|5| And the angel which I saw stand upon the sea and upon the earth lifted up his hand to heaven,

Rev|10|6| And sware by him that liveth for ever and ever, who created heaven, and the things that therein are, and the earth, and the things that therein are, and the sea, and the things which are therein, that there should be time no longer:

Rev|10|7| But in the days of the voice of the seventh angel, when he shall begin to sound, the mystery of God should be finished, as he hath declared to his servants the prophets.

Rev|10|8| And the voice which I heard from heaven spake unto me again, and said, Go and take the little book which is open in the hand of the angel which standeth upon the sea and upon the earth.

Rev|10|9| And I went unto the angel, and said unto him, Give me the little book. And he said unto me, Take it, and eat it up; and it shall make thy belly bitter, but it shall be in thy mouth sweet as honey.

Rev|10|10| And I took the little book out of the angel's hand, and ate it up; and it was in my mouth sweet as honey: and as soon as I had eaten it, my belly was bitter.

Rev|10|11| And he said unto me, Thou must prophesy again before many peoples, and nations, and tongues, and kings.

Rev|11|1| And there was given me a reed like unto a rod: and the angel stood, saying, Rise, and measure the temple of God, and the altar, and them that worship therein.

Rev|11|2| But the court which is without the temple leave out, and measure it not; for it is given unto the Gentiles: and the holy city shall they tread under foot forty and two months.

Rev|11|3| And I will give power unto my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days, clothed in sackcloth.

Rev|11|4| These are the two olive trees, and the two candlesticks standing before the God of the earth.

Rev|11|5| And if any man will hurt them, fire proceedeth out of their mouth, and devoureth their enemies: and if any man will hurt them, he must in this manner be killed.

Rev|11|6| These have power to shut heaven, that it rain not in the days of their prophecy: and have power over waters to turn them to blood, and to smite the earth with all plagues, as often as they will.

Rev|11|7| And when they shall have finished their testimony, the beast that ascendeth out of the bottomless pit shall make war against them, and shall overcome them, and kill them.

Rev|11|8| And their dead bodies shall lie in the street of the great city, which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also our Lord was crucified.

Rev|11|9| And they of the people and kindreds and tongues and nations shall see their dead bodies three days and an half, and shall not suffer their dead bodies to be put in graves.

Rev|11|10| And they that dwell upon the earth shall rejoice over them, and make merry, and shall send gifts one to another; because these two prophets tormented them that dwelt on the earth.

Rev|11|11| And after three days and an half the spirit of life from God entered into them, and they stood upon their feet; and great fear fell upon them which saw them.

Rev|11|12| And they heard a great voice from heaven saying unto them, Come up hither. And they ascended up to heaven in a cloud; and their enemies beheld them.

Rev|11|13| And the same hour was there a great earthquake, and the tenth part of the city fell, and in the earthquake were slain of men seven thousand: and the remnant were affrighted, and gave glory to the God of heaven.

Rev|11|14| The second woe is past; and, behold, the third woe cometh quickly.

Rev|11|15| And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying, The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever.

Rev|11|16| And the four and twenty elders, which sat before God on their seats, fell upon their faces, and worshipped God,

Rev|11|17| Saying, We give thee thanks, O LORD God Almighty, which art, and wast, and art to come; because thou hast taken to thee thy great power, and hast reigned.

Rev|11|18| And the nations were angry, and thy wrath is come, and the time of the dead, that they should be judged, and that thou shouldest give reward unto thy servants the prophets, and to the saints, and them that fear thy name, small and great; and shouldest destroy them which destroy the earth.

Rev|11|19| And the temple of God was opened in heaven, and there was seen in his temple the ark of his testament: and there were lightnings, and voices, and thunderings, and an earthquake, and great hail.

Rev|12|1| And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars:

Rev|12|2| And she being with child cried, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered.

Rev|12|3| And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads.

Rev|12|4| And his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and did cast them to the earth: and the dragon stood before the woman which was ready to be delivered, for to devour her child as soon as it was born.

Rev|12|5| And she brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron: and her child was caught up unto God, and to his throne.

Rev|12|6| And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she hath a place prepared of God, that they should feed her there a thousand two hundred and threescore days.

Rev|12|7| And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels,

Rev|12|8| And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven.

Rev|12|9| And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.

Rev|12|10| And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night.

Rev|12|11| And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.

Rev|12|12| Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time.

Rev|12|13| And when the dragon saw that he was cast unto the earth, he persecuted the woman which brought forth the man child.

Rev|12|14| And to the woman were given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place, where she is nourished for a time, and times, and half a time, from the face of the serpent.

Rev|12|15| And the serpent cast out of his mouth water as a flood after the woman, that he might cause her to be carried away of the flood.

Rev|12|16| And the earth helped the woman, and the earth opened her mouth, and swallowed up the flood which the dragon cast out of his mouth.

Rev|12|17| And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.

Rev|13|1| And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy.

Rev|13|2| And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority.

Rev|13|3| And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast.

Rev|13|4| And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him?

Rev|13|5| And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months.

Rev|13|6| And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven.

Rev|13|7| And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations.

Rev|13|8| And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.

Rev|13|9| If any man have an ear, let him hear.

Rev|13|10| He that leadeth into captivity shall go into captivity: he that killeth with the sword must be killed with the sword. Here is the patience and the faith of the saints.

Rev|13|11| And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon.

Rev|13|12| And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed.

Rev|13|13| And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men,

Rev|13|14| And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live.

Rev|13|15| And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.

Rev|13|16| And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:

Rev|13|17| And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

Rev|13|18| Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.

Rev|14|1| And I looked, and, lo, a Lamb stood on the mount Sion, and with him an hundred forty and four thousand, having his Father's name written in their foreheads.

Rev|14|2| And I heard a voice from heaven, as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of a great thunder: and I heard the voice of harpers harping with their harps:

Rev|14|3| And they sung as it were a new song before the throne, and before the four beasts, and the elders: and no man could learn that song but the hundred and forty and four thousand, which were redeemed from the earth.

Rev|14|4| These are they which were not defiled with women; for they are virgins. These are they which follow the Lamb whithersoever he goeth. These were redeemed from among men, being the firstfruits unto God and to the Lamb.

Rev|14|5| And in their mouth was found no guile: for they are without fault before the throne of God.

Rev|14|6| And I saw another angel fly in the midst of heaven, having the everlasting gospel to preach unto them that dwell on the earth, and to every nation, and kindred, and tongue, and people,

Rev|14|7| Saying with a loud voice, Fear God, and give glory to him; for the hour of his judgment is come: and worship him that made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters.

Rev|14|8| And there followed another angel, saying, Babylon is fallen, is fallen, that great city, because she made all nations drink of the wine of the wrath of her fornication.

Rev|14|9| And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand,

Rev|14|10| The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb:

Rev|14|11| And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name.

Rev|14|12| Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus.

Rev|14|13| And I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, Write, Blessed are the dead which die in the Lord from henceforth: Yea, saith the Spirit, that they may rest from their labours; and their works do follow them.

Rev|14|14| And I looked, and behold a white cloud, and upon the cloud one sat like unto the Son of man, having on his head a golden crown, and in his hand a sharp sickle.

Rev|14|15| And another angel came out of the temple, crying with a loud voice to him that sat on the cloud, Thrust in thy sickle, and reap: for the time is come for thee to reap; for the harvest of the earth is ripe.

Rev|14|16| And he that sat on the cloud thrust in his sickle on the earth; and the earth was reaped.

Rev|14|17| And another angel came out of the temple which is in heaven, he also having a sharp sickle.

Rev|14|18| And another angel came out from the altar, which had power over fire; and cried with a loud cry to him that had the sharp sickle, saying, Thrust in thy sharp sickle, and gather the clusters of the vine of the earth; for her grapes are fully ripe.

Rev|14|19| And the angel thrust in his sickle into the earth, and gathered the vine of the earth, and cast it into the great winepress of the wrath of God.

Rev|14|20| And the winepress was trodden without the city, and blood came out of the winepress, even unto the horse bridles, by the space of a thousand and six hundred furlongs.

Rev|15|1| And I saw another sign in heaven, great and marvellous, seven angels having the seven last plagues; for in them is filled up the wrath of God.

Rev|15|2| And I saw as it were a sea of glass mingled with fire: and them that had gotten the victory over the beast, and over his image, and over his mark, and over the number of his name, stand on the sea of glass, having the harps of God.

Rev|15|3| And they sing the song of Moses the servant of God, and the song of the Lamb, saying, Great and marvellous are thy works, Lord God Almighty; just and true are thy ways, thou King of saints.

Rev|15|4| Who shall not fear thee, O Lord, and glorify thy name? for thou only art holy: for all nations shall come and worship before thee; for thy judgments are made manifest.

Rev|15|5| And after that I looked, and, behold, the temple of the tabernacle of the testimony in heaven was opened:

Rev|15|6| And the seven angels came out of the temple, having the seven plagues, clothed in pure and white linen, and having their breasts girded with golden girdles.

Rev|15|7| And one of the four beasts gave unto the seven angels seven golden vials full of the wrath of God, who liveth for ever and ever.

Rev|15|8| And the temple was filled with smoke from the glory of God, and from his power; and no man was able to enter into the temple, till the seven plagues of the seven angels were fulfilled.

Rev|16|1| And I heard a great voice out of the temple saying to the seven angels, Go your ways, and pour out the vials of the wrath of God upon the earth.

Rev|16|2| And the first went, and poured out his vial upon the earth; and there fell a noisome and grievous sore upon the men which had the mark of the beast, and upon them which worshipped his image.

Rev|16|3| And the second angel poured out his vial upon the sea; and it became as the blood of a dead man: and every living soul died in the sea.

Rev|16|4| And the third angel poured out his vial upon the rivers and fountains of waters; and they became blood.

Rev|16|5| And I heard the angel of the waters say, Thou art righteous, O Lord, which art, and wast, and shalt be, because thou hast judged thus.

Rev|16|6| For they have shed the blood of saints and prophets, and thou hast given them blood to drink; for they are worthy.

Rev|16|7| And I heard another out of the altar say, Even so, Lord God Almighty, true and righteous are thy judgments.

Rev|16|8| And the fourth angel poured out his vial upon the sun; and power was given unto him to scorch men with fire.

Rev|16|9| And men were scorched with great heat, and blasphemed the name of God, which hath power over these plagues: and they repented not to give him glory.

Rev|16|10| And the fifth angel poured out his vial upon the seat of the beast; and his kingdom was full of darkness; and they gnawed their tongues for pain,

Rev|16|11| And blasphemed the God of heaven because of their pains and their sores, and repented not of their deeds.

Rev|16|12| And the sixth angel poured out his vial upon the great river Euphrates; and the water thereof was dried up, that the way of the kings of the east might be prepared.

Rev|16|13| And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet.

Rev|16|14| For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty.

Rev|16|15| Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed is he that watcheth, and keepeth his garments, lest he walk naked, and they see his shame.

Rev|16|16| And he gathered them together into a place called in the Hebrew tongue Armageddon.

Rev|16|17| And the seventh angel poured out his vial into the air; and there came a great voice out of the temple of heaven, from the throne, saying, It is done.

Rev|16|18| And there were voices, and thunders, and lightnings; and there was a great earthquake, such as was not since men were upon the earth, so mighty an earthquake, and so great.

Rev|16|19| And the great city was divided into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell: and great Babylon came in remembrance before God, to give unto her the cup of the wine of the fierceness of his wrath.

Rev|16|20| And every island fled away, and the mountains were not found.

Rev|16|21| And there fell upon men a great hail out of heaven, every stone about the weight of a talent: and men blasphemed God because of the plague of the hail; for the plague thereof was exceeding great.

Rev|17|1| And there came one of the seven angels which had the seven vials, and talked with me, saying unto me, Come hither; I will shew unto thee the judgment of the great whore that sitteth upon many waters:

Rev|17|2| With whom the kings of the earth have committed fornication, and the inhabitants of the earth have been made drunk with the wine of her fornication.

Rev|17|3| So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns.

Rev|17|4| And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication:

Rev|17|5| And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.

Rev|17|6| And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: and when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration.

Rev|17|7| And the angel said unto me, Wherefore didst thou marvel? I will tell thee the mystery of the woman, and of the beast that carrieth her, which hath the seven heads and ten horns.

Rev|17|8| The beast that thou sawest was, and is not; and shall ascend out of the bottomless pit, and go into perdition: and they that dwell on the earth shall wonder, whose names were not written in the book of life from the foundation of the world, when they behold the beast that was, and is not, and yet is.

Rev|17|9| And here is the mind which hath wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth.

Rev|17|10| And there are seven kings: five are fallen, and one is, and the other is not yet come; and when he cometh, he must continue a short space.

Rev|17|11| And the beast that was, and is not, even he is the eighth, and is of the seven, and goeth into perdition.

Rev|17|12| And the ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings one hour with the beast.

Rev|17|13| These have one mind, and shall give their power and strength unto the beast.

Rev|17|14| These shall make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them: for he is Lord of lords, and King of kings: and they that are with him are called, and chosen, and faithful.

Rev|17|15| And he saith unto me, The waters which thou sawest, where the whore sitteth, are peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues.

Rev|17|16| And the ten horns which thou sawest upon the beast, these shall hate the whore, and shall make her desolate and naked, and shall eat her flesh, and burn her with fire.

Rev|17|17| For God hath put in their hearts to fulfil his will, and to agree, and give their kingdom unto the beast, until the words of God shall be fulfilled.

Rev|17|18| And the woman which thou sawest is that great city, which reigneth over the kings of the earth.

Rev|18|1| And after these things I saw another angel come down from heaven, having great power; and the earth was lightened with his glory.

Rev|18|2| And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird.

Rev|18|3| For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies.

Rev|18|4| And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.

Rev|18|5| For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities.

Rev|18|6| Reward her even as she rewarded you, and double unto her double according to her works: in the cup which she hath filled fill to her double.

Rev|18|7| How much she hath glorified herself, and lived deliciously, so much torment and sorrow give her: for she saith in her heart, I sit a queen, and am no widow, and shall see no sorrow.

Rev|18|8| Therefore shall her plagues come in one day, death, and mourning, and famine; and she shall be utterly burned with fire: for strong is the Lord God who judgeth her.

Rev|18|9| And the kings of the earth, who have committed fornication and lived deliciously with her, shall bewail her, and lament for her, when they shall see the smoke of her burning,

Rev|18|10| Standing afar off for the fear of her torment, saying, Alas, alas that great city Babylon, that mighty city! for in one hour is thy judgment come.

Rev|18|11| And the merchants of the earth shall weep and mourn over her; for no man buyeth their merchandise any more:

Rev|18|12| The merchandise of gold, and silver, and precious stones, and of pearls, and fine linen, and purple, and silk, and scarlet, and all thyine wood, and all manner vessels of ivory, and all manner vessels of most precious wood, and of brass, and iron, and marble,

Rev|18|13| And cinnamon, and odours, and ointments, and frankincense, and wine, and oil, and fine flour, and wheat, and beasts, and sheep, and horses, and chariots, and slaves, and souls of men.

Rev|18|14| And the fruits that thy soul lusted after are departed from thee, and all things which were dainty and goodly are departed from thee, and thou shalt find them no more at all.

Rev|18|15| The merchants of these things, which were made rich by her, shall stand afar off for the fear of her torment, weeping and wailing,

Rev|18|16| And saying, Alas, alas that great city, that was clothed in fine linen, and purple, and scarlet, and decked with gold, and precious stones, and pearls!

Rev|18|17| For in one hour so great riches is come to nought. And every shipmaster, and all the company in ships, and sailors, and as many as trade by sea, stood afar off,

Rev|18|18| And cried when they saw the smoke of her burning, saying, What city is like unto this great city!

Rev|18|19| And they cast dust on their heads, and cried, weeping and wailing, saying, Alas, alas that great city, wherein were made rich all that had ships in the sea by reason of her costliness! for in one hour is she made desolate.

Rev|18|20| Rejoice over her, thou heaven, and ye holy apostles and prophets; for God hath avenged you on her.

Rev|18|21| And a mighty angel took up a stone like a great millstone, and cast it into the sea, saying, Thus with violence shall that great city Babylon be thrown down, and shall be found no more at all.

Rev|18|22| And the voice of harpers, and musicians, and of pipers, and trumpeters, shall be heard no more at all in thee; and no craftsman, of whatsoever craft he be, shall be found any more in thee; and the sound of a millstone shall be heard no more at all in thee;

Rev|18|23| And the light of a candle shall shine no more at all in thee; and the voice of the bridegroom and of the bride shall be heard no more at all in thee: for thy merchants were the great men of the earth; for by thy sorceries were all nations deceived.

Rev|18|24| And in her was found the blood of prophets, and of saints, and of all that were slain upon the earth.

Rev|19|1| And after these things I heard a great voice of much people in heaven, saying, Alleluia; Salvation, and glory, and honour, and power, unto the Lord our God:

Rev|19|2| For true and righteous are his judgments: for he hath judged the great whore, which did corrupt the earth with her fornication, and hath avenged the blood of his servants at her hand.

Rev|19|3| And again they said, Alleluia And her smoke rose up for ever and ever.

Rev|19|4| And the four and twenty elders and the four beasts fell down and worshipped God that sat on the throne, saying, Amen; Alleluia.

Rev|19|5| And a voice came out of the throne, saying, Praise our God, all ye his servants, and ye that fear him, both small and great.

Rev|19|6| And I heard as it were the voice of a great multitude, and as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of mighty thunderings, saying, Alleluia: for the Lord God omnipotent reigneth.

Rev|19|7| Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour to him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and his wife hath made herself ready.

Rev|19|8| And to her was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen, clean and white: for the fine linen is the righteousness of saints.

Rev|19|9| And he saith unto me, Write, Blessed are they which are called unto the marriage supper of the Lamb. And he saith unto me, These are the true sayings of God.

Rev|19|10| And I fell at his feet to worship him. And he said unto me, See thou do it not: I am thy fellowservant, and of thy brethren that have the testimony of Jesus: worship God: for the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.

Rev|19|11| And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war.

Rev|19|12| His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself.

Rev|19|13| And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God.

Rev|19|14| And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean.

Rev|19|15| And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God.

Rev|19|16| And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS.

Rev|19|17| And I saw an angel standing in the sun; and he cried with a loud voice, saying to all the fowls that fly in the midst of heaven, Come and gather yourselves together unto the supper of the great God;

Rev|19|18| That ye may eat the flesh of kings, and the flesh of captains, and the flesh of mighty men, and the flesh of horses, and of them that sit on them, and the flesh of all men, both free and bond, both small and great.

Rev|19|19| And I saw the beast, and the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against him that sat on the horse, and against his army.

Rev|19|20| And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone.

Rev|19|21| And the remnant were slain with the sword of him that sat upon the horse, which sword proceeded out of his mouth: and all the fowls were filled with their flesh.

Rev|20|1| And I saw an angel come down from heaven, having the key of the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand.

Rev|20|2| And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years,

Rev|20|3| And cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal upon him, that he should deceive the nations no more, till the thousand years should be fulfilled: and after that he must be loosed a little season.

Rev|20|4| And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years.

Rev|20|5| But the rest of the dead lived not again until the thousand years were finished. This is the first resurrection.

Rev|20|6| Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years.

Rev|20|7| And when the thousand years are expired, Satan shall be loosed out of his prison,

Rev|20|8| And shall go out to deceive the nations which are in the four quarters of the earth, Gog, and Magog, to gather them together to battle: the number of whom is as the sand of the sea.

Rev|20|9| And they went up on the breadth of the earth, and compassed the camp of the saints about, and the beloved city: and fire came down from God out of heaven, and devoured them.

Rev|20|10| And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever.

Rev|20|11| And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them.

Rev|20|12| And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works.

Rev|20|13| And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works.

Rev|20|14| And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death.

Rev|20|15| And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.

Rev|21|1| And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea.

Rev|21|2| And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.

Rev|21|3| And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God.

Rev|21|4| And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.

Rev|21|5| And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful.

Rev|21|6| And he said unto me, It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely.

Rev|21|7| He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son.

Rev|21|8| But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.

Rev|21|9| And there came unto me one of the seven angels which had the seven vials full of the seven last plagues, and talked with me, saying, Come hither, I will shew thee the bride, the Lamb's wife.

Rev|21|10| And he carried me away in the spirit to a great and high mountain, and shewed me that great city, the holy Jerusalem, descending out of heaven from God,

Rev|21|11| Having the glory of God: and her light was like unto a stone most precious, even like a jasper stone, clear as crystal;

Rev|21|12| And had a wall great and high, and had twelve gates, and at the gates twelve angels, and names written thereon, which are the names of the twelve tribes of the children of Israel:

Rev|21|13| On the east three gates; on the north three gates; on the south three gates; and on the west three gates.

Rev|21|14| And the wall of the city had twelve foundations, and in them the names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb.

Rev|21|15| And he that talked with me had a golden reed to measure the city, and the gates thereof, and the wall thereof.

Rev|21|16| And the city lieth foursquare, and the length is as large as the breadth: and he measured the city with the reed, twelve thousand furlongs. The length and the breadth and the height of it are equal.

Rev|21|17| And he measured the wall thereof, an hundred and forty and four cubits, according to the measure of a man, that is, of the angel.

Rev|21|18| And the building of the wall of it was of jasper: and the city was pure gold, like unto clear glass.

Rev|21|19| And the foundations of the wall of the city were garnished with all manner of precious stones. The first foundation was jasper; the second, sapphire; the third, a chalcedony; the fourth, an emerald;

Rev|21|20| The fifth, sardonyx; the sixth, sardius; the seventh, chrysolyte; the eighth, beryl; the ninth, a topaz; the tenth, a chrysoprasus; the eleventh, a jacinth; the twelfth, an amethyst.

Rev|21|21| And the twelve gates were twelve pearls: every several gate was of one pearl: and the street of the city was pure gold, as it were transparent glass.

Rev|21|22| And I saw no temple therein: for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are the temple of it.

Rev|21|23| And the city had no need of the sun, neither of the moon, to shine in it: for the glory of God did lighten it, and the Lamb is the light thereof.

Rev|21|24| And the nations of them which are saved shall walk in the light of it: and the kings of the earth do bring their glory and honour into it.

Rev|21|25| And the gates of it shall not be shut at all by day: for there shall be no night there.

Rev|21|26| And they shall bring the glory and honour of the nations into it.

Rev|21|27| And there shall in no wise enter into it any thing that defileth, neither whatsoever worketh abomination, or maketh a lie: but they which are written in the Lamb's book of life.

Rev|22|1| And he shewed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb.

Rev|22|2| In the midst of the street of it, and on either side of the river, was there the tree of life, which bare twelve manner of fruits, and yielded her fruit every month: and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations.

Rev|22|3| And there shall be no more curse: but the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it; and his servants shall serve him:

Rev|22|4| And they shall see his face; and his name shall be in their foreheads.

Rev|22|5| And there shall be no night there; and they need no candle, neither light of the sun; for the Lord God giveth them light: and they shall reign for ever and ever.

Rev|22|6| And he said unto me, These sayings are faithful and true: and the Lord God of the holy prophets sent his angel to shew unto his servants the things which must shortly be done.

Rev|22|7| Behold, I come quickly: blessed is he that keepeth the sayings of the prophecy of this book.

Rev|22|8| And I John saw these things, and heard them. And when I had heard and seen, I fell down to worship before the feet of the angel which shewed me these things.

Rev|22|9| Then saith he unto me, See thou do it not: for I am thy fellowservant, and of thy brethren the prophets, and of them which keep the sayings of this book: worship God.

Rev|22|10| And he saith unto me, Seal not the sayings of the prophecy of this book: for the time is at hand.

Rev|22|11| He that is unjust, let him be unjust still: and he which is filthy, let him be filthy still: and he that is righteous, let him be righteous still: and he that is holy, let him be holy still.

Rev|22|12| And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be.

Rev|22|13| I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last.

Rev|22|14| Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city.

Rev|22|15| For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie.

Rev|22|16| I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright and morning star.

Rev|22|17| And the Spirit and the bride say, Come. And let him that heareth say, Come. And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely.

Rev|22|18| For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book:

Rev|22|19| And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.

Rev|22|20| He which testifieth these things saith, Surely I come quickly. Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus.

Rev|22|21| The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen.
