The Gospel of Matthew
Bible, King James Version (KJV)
] The book of the generation of Jesus Christ, the son of
David, the son of Abraham.
] Abraham begat Isaac; and Isaac begat
Jacob; and Jacob begat Judas and his brethren;
] And Judas begat
Phares and Zara of Thamar; and Phares begat Esrom; and Esrom begat
] And Aram begat Aminadab; and Aminadab begat Naasson; and
Naasson begat Salmon;
] And Salmon begat Booz of Rachab; and Booz
begat Obed of Ruth; and Obed begat Jesse;
] And Jesse begat David
the king; and David the king begat Solomon of her that had been the wife of
] And Solomon begat Roboam; and Roboam begat Abia; and Abia
] And Asa begat Josaphat; and Josaphat begat Joram; and
Joram begat Ozias;
] And Ozias begat Joatham; and Joatham begat
Achaz; and Achaz begat Ezekias;
] And Ezekias begat Manasses; and
Manasses begat Amon; and Amon begat Josias;
] And Josias begat
Jechonias and his brethren, about the time they were carried away to
] And after they were brought to Babylon, Jechonias begat
Salathiel; and Salathiel begat Zorobabel;
] And Zorobabel begat
Abiud; and Abiud begat Eliakim; and Eliakim begat Azor;
] And Azor
begat Sadoc; and Sadoc begat Achim; and Achim begat Eliud;
Eliud begat Eleazar; and Eleazar begat Matthan; and Matthan begat
] And Jacob begat Joseph the husband of Mary, of whom was
born Jesus, who is called Christ.
] 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.
] 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
] Then Joseph her husband, being a just man, and not willing
to make her a publick example, was minded to put her away
] 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.
] And she shall bring forth a son, and thou
shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their
] Now all this was done, that it might be fulfilled which was
spoken of the Lord by the prophet, saying,
] 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.
] Then Joseph
being raised from sleep did as the angel of the Lord had bidden him, and took
unto him his wife:
] And knew her not till she had brought forth
her firstborn son: and he called his name JESUS.
] 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
] 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.
When Herod the king had heard these things, he was troubled, and all Jerusalem
] And when he had gathered all the chief priests and
scribes of the people together, he demanded of them where Christ should be
] And they said unto him, In Bethlehem of Judaea: for thus it
is written by the prophet,
] 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.
] Then Herod, when he
had privily called the wise men, inquired of them diligently what time the star
] 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.
] 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.
they saw the star, they rejoiced with exceeding great joy.
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
] And being warned of God in a dream that they should not
return to Herod, they departed into their own country another
] 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.
] When he arose, he
took the young child and his mother by night, and departed into
] 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.
] 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 inquired of the wise
] Then was fulfilled that which was spoken by Jeremy the
] 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.
] But when Herod was dead,
behold, an angel of the Lord appeareth in a dream to Joseph in
] 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
] And he arose, and took the young child and his mother, and
came into the land of Israel.
] 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:
] 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.
] In those days came John the Baptist, preaching in the
wilderness of Judaea,
] And saying, Repent ye: for the kingdom of
heaven is at hand.
] 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.
] 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.
] Then went out to him Jerusalem,
and all Judaea, and all the region round about Jordan,
] And were
baptized of him in Jordan, confessing their sins.
] 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
] Bring forth therefore fruits meet for
] 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.
] 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.
] 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
] 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.
] Then cometh Jesus from Galilee to Jordan
unto John, to be baptized of him.
] But John forbad him, saying, I
have need to be baptized of thee, and comest thou to me?
Jesus answering said unto him, Suffer it to be so now: for thus it becometh us
to fulfil all righteousness. Then he suffered him.
] 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:
] And lo a voice from heaven, saying, This is my
beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.
] Then was Jesus led up of the Spirit into the
wilderness to be tempted of the devil.
] And when he had fasted
forty days and forty nights, he was afterward an hungred.
] And when
the tempter came to him, he said, If thou be the Son of God, command that these
stones be made bread.
] 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.
] Then the devil taketh him up into the holy city, and
setteth him on a pinnacle of the temple,
] 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.
] Jesus said unto
him, It is written again, Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God.
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;
] And saith
unto him, All these things will I give thee, if thou wilt fall down and worship
] 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
] Then the devil leaveth him, and, behold, angels came and
ministered unto him.
] Now when Jesus had heard that John was cast
into prison, he departed into Galilee;
] And leaving Nazareth, he
came and dwelt in Capernaum, which is upon the sea coast, in the borders of
Zabulon and Nephthalim:
] That it might be fulfilled which was
spoken by Esaias the prophet, saying,
] The land of Zabulon, and
the land of Nephthalim, by the way of the sea, beyond Jordan, Galilee of the
] The people which sat in darkness saw great light; and
to them which sat in the region and shadow of death light is sprung
] From that time Jesus began to preach, and to say, Repent: for
the kingdom of heaven is at hand.
] 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.
] And he saith
unto them, Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men.
they straightway left their nets, and followed him.
] 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
] And they immediately left the ship and their father, and
] 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.
] 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
] And there followed him great multitudes of people
from Galilee, and from Decapolis, and from Jerusalem, and from Judaea, and from
] And seeing the multitudes, he went up into a mountain:
and when he was set, his disciples came unto him:
] And he opened
his mouth, and taught them, saying,
] Blessed are the poor in
spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
] Blessed are they that
mourn: for they shall be comforted.
] Blessed are the meek: for they
shall inherit the earth.
] Blessed are they which do hunger and
thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled.
] Blessed are
the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy.
] Blessed are the pure in
heart: for they shall see God.
] Blessed are the peacemakers: for
they shall be called the children of God.
] Blessed are they which
are persecuted for righteousness' sake: for theirs is the kingdom of
] Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute
you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my
] Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in
heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before
] 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.
] Ye are the
light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid.
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.
] Let your
light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your
Father which is in heaven.
] Think not that I am come to destroy
the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to
] 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
] 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.
] 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.
Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time, Thou shalt not kill; and
whosoever shall kill shall be in danger of the judgment:
] 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.
] Therefore if thou bring thy gift to the
altar, and there rememberest that thy brother hath ought against
] Leave there thy gift before the altar, and go thy way;
first be reconciled to thy brother, and then come and offer thy

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.
Verily I say unto thee, Thou shalt by no means come out thence, till thou hast
paid the uttermost farthing.
] Ye have heard that it was said by
them of old time, Thou shalt not commit adultery:
] But I say unto
you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery
with her already in his heart.
] 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
] And if thy right hand offend thee, cut if 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.
] It hath
been said, Whosoever shall put away his wife, let him give her a writing of

his wife, saving for the cause of fornication, causeth her to commit adultery:
and whosoever shall marry her that is divorced committeth

old time, Thou shalt not forswear thyself, but shalt perform unto the Lord thine

for it is God's throne:
] Nor by the earth; for it is his
footstool: neither by Jerusalem; for it is the city of the great

not make one hair white or black.
] But let your communication be,
Yea, yea; Nay, nay: for whatsoever is more than these cometh of

and a tooth for a tooth:
] But I say unto you, That ye resist not
evil: but whosoever shall smite thee on thy right cheek, turn to him the other
] And if any man will sue thee at the law, and take away thy
coat, let him have thy cloke also.
] And whosoever shall compel
thee to go a mile, go with him twain.
] Give to him that asketh
thee, and from him that would borrow of thee turn not thou away.
Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbour, and hate
] 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;

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

do not even the publicans the same?
] And if ye salute your
brethren only, what do ye more than others? do not even the publicans

heaven is perfect.
] 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

trumpet before thee, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets,

thy right hand doeth:
] That thine alms may be in secret: and thy
Father which seeth in secret himself shall reward thee openly.
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.
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.
] But when ye pray, use not vain
repetitions, as the heathen do: for they think that they shall be heard for
their much speaking.
] Be not ye therefore like unto them: for your
Father knoweth what things ye have need of, before ye ask him.
After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be

forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.
] 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.

trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you:
] But if ye
forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your

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.
] But thou,
when thou fastest, anoint thine head, and wash thy face;
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.
not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt,
and where thieves break through and steal:
] But lay up for
yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and
where thieves do not break through nor steal:

treasure is, there will your heart be also.

is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of

] 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.
] 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?
] 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?
] Which of you by taking
thought can add one cubit unto his stature?
] And why take ye
thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil
not, neither do they spin:
] And yet I say unto you, That even
Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.
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
] Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or,
What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed?
after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth
that ye have need of all these things.

kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto

shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil

with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete,
it shall be measured to you again.
] And why beholdest thou the mote
that is in thy brother's eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own
] 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?
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.
] 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.
Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be
opened unto you:
] For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that
seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.
what man is there of you, whom if his son ask bread, will he give him a

your children, how much more shall your Father which is in heaven give good
things to them that ask him?

would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them: for this is the law and
] 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:
] Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way,
which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.

false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are

gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?
] Even so every good
tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil

corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.
] Every tree that bringeth not
forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.
by their fruits ye shall know them.
] 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.
] 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?

will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work

people were astonished at his doctrine:
] For he taught them as one
having authority, and not as the scribes.

multitudes followed him.
] And, behold, there came a leper and
worshipped him, saying, Lord, if thou wilt, thou canst make me

will; be thou clean. And immediately his leprosy was cleansed.

him a centurion, beseeching him,
] And saying, Lord, my servant
lieth at home sick of the palsy, grievously tormented.
] And Jesus
saith unto him, I will come and heal him.
] 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.
] 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

that followed, Verily I say unto you, I have not found so great faith, no, not

and west, and shall sit down with Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, in the kingdom
] But the children of the kingdom shall be cast out into
outer darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
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.
And when Jesus was come into Peter's house, he saw his wife's mother laid, and
sick of a fever.
] And he touched her hand, and the fever left her:
and she arose, and ministered unto them.
] 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:
] That it
might be fulfilled which was spoken by Esaias the prophet, saying, Himself took
our infirmities, and bare our sicknesses.
] Now when Jesus saw
great multitudes about him, he gave commandment to depart unto the other
] And a certain scribe came, and said unto him, Master, I
will follow thee whithersoever thou goest.
] 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.

said unto him, Lord, suffer me first to go and bury my father.
But Jesus said unto him, Follow me; and let the dead bury their

Lord, save us: we perish.
] 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.
] But the men marvelled, saying, What
manner of man is this, that even the winds and the sea obey him!
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.
] 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?
] And there was a good way
off from them an herd of many swine feeding.

besought him, saying, If thou cast us out, suffer us to go away into the herd of

into his own city.

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.
behold, certain of the scribes said within themselves, This man

think ye evil in your hearts?
] For whether is easier, to say, Thy
sins be forgiven thee; or to say, Arise, and walk?

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

when the multitudes saw it, they marvelled, and glorified God, which had given
such power unto men.
] 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.
] 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.

be whole need not a physician, but they that are sick.
] 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.
] Then came
to him the disciples of John, saying, Why do we and the Pharisees fast oft, but
thy disciples fast not?

unto him, Why speakest thou unto them in parables?
] 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.
] 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.
Therefore speak I to them in parables: because they seeing see not; and hearing

kingdom of heaven is likened unto a man which sowed good seed in his

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?
] He said unto
them, An enemy hath done this. The servants said unto him, Wilt thou then that
we go and gather them up?
] But he said, Nay; lest while ye gather
up the tares, ye root up also the wheat with them.
] 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.
] 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:
] Which indeed is
the least of all seeds: but when it is grown, it is the greatest among herbs,

heaven is like unto leaven, which a woman took, and hid in three measures of
meal, till the whole was leavened.

] As therefore the tares are gathered
and burned in the fire; so shall it be in the end of this world.

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.

as a prophet.

Herodias danced before them, and pleased Herod.

promised with an oath to give her whatsoever she would ask.
she, being before instructed of her mother, said, Give me here John Baptist's
head in a charger.

oath's sake, and them which sat with him at meat, he commanded it to be given

heard thereof, they followed him on foot out of the cities.
Jesus went forth, and saw a great multitude, and was moved with compassion
toward them, and he healed their sick.

the night Jesus went unto them, walking on the sea.
] And when the
disciples saw him walking on the sea, they were troubled, saying, It is a
spirit; and they cried out for fear.

unto them, saying, Be of good cheer; it is I; be not afraid.
Peter answered him and said, Lord, if it be thou, bid me come unto thee on the

gone over, they came into the land of Gennesaret.

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;
besought him that they might only touch the hem of his garment: and as many as
touched were made perfectly whole.
] Then came to Jesus scribes and Pharisees, which were
of Jerusalem, saying,
] Why do thy disciples transgress the
tradition of the elders? for they wash not their hands when they eat

transgress the commandment of God by your tradition?

commanded, saying, Honour thy father and mother: and, He that curseth father or
mother, let him die the death.

offended, after they heard this saying?

the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch.
answered Peter and said unto him, Declare unto us this parable.
And Jesus said, Are ye also yet without understanding?

yet understand, that whatsoever entereth in at the mouth goeth into the belly,
and is cast out into the draught?

out of the mouth come forth from the heart; and they defile the

of Tyre and Sidon.

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.

answered her not a word. And his disciples came and besought him, saying, Send
her away; for she crieth after us.

] 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.
Jesus departed from thence, and came nigh unto the sea of Galilee; and went up
into a mountain, and sat down there.
] 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:
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.
] 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.
] And his disciples say unto him, Whence
should we have so much bread in the wilderness, as to fill so great a
] And Jesus saith unto them, How many loaves have ye?
And they said, Seven, and a few little fishes.
] And he commanded
the multitude to sit down on the ground.
] 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.
] And they did all
eat, and were filled: and they took up of the broken meat that was left seven
] And they that did eat were four thousand men,
beside women and children.
] And he sent away the multitude, and
took ship, and came into the coasts of Magdala,
] The Pharisees also with the Sadducees came, and
tempting desired him that he would shew them a sign from heaven.
He answered and said unto them, When it is evening, ye say, It will be fair
weather: for the sky is red.
] And in the morning, It will be foul
weather to day: for the sky is red and lowring. O ye hypocrites, ye can discern
the face of the sky; but can ye not discern the signs of the
] 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.
] And when his disciples were come to
the other side, they had forgotten to take bread.
] Then Jesus said
unto them, Take heed and beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and of the
] And they reasoned among themselves, saying, It is
because we have taken no bread.
] Which when Jesus perceived, he
said unto them, O ye of little faith, why reason ye among yourselves, because ye
have brought no bread?
] Do ye not yet understand, neither remember
the five loaves of the five thousand, and how many baskets ye took
] Neither the seven loaves of the four thousand, and how many
baskets ye took up?
] 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?
] 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.
] 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?
] And they said, Some say that thou art John the
Baptist: some, Elias; and others, Jeremias, or one of the
] He saith unto them, But whom say ye that I
] And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ, the
Son of the living God.
] 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.
] 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.
] 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
] Then charged he his disciples that they should tell no
man that he was Jesus the Christ.
] 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.
] Then Peter took him, and began to
rebuke him, saying, Be it far from thee, Lord: this shall not be unto
] 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.
] 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.
] For whosoever will save his life shall lose
it: and whosoever will lose his life for my sake shall find it.
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?
] 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.
] 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.
] And after six days Jesus taketh Peter, James, and
John his brother, and bringeth them up into an high mountain
] And was transfigured before them: and his face did shine as
the sun, and his raiment was white as the light.
] And, behold,
there appeared unto them Moses and Elias talking with him.
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.
] 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.
] And when the
disciples heard it, they fell on their face, and were sore afraid.
And Jesus came and touched them, and said, Arise, and be not
] And when they had lifted up their eyes, they saw no man,
save Jesus only.
] 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.
] And his disciples asked him, saying, Why
then say the scribes that Elias must first come?
] And Jesus
answered and said unto them, Elias truly shall first come, and restore all
] 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.
] Then the disciples understood that
he spake unto them of John the Baptist.
] And when they were come
to the multitude, there came to him a certain man, kneeling down to him, and
] Lord, have mercy on my son: for he is lunatick, and sore
vexed: for ofttimes he falleth into the fire, and oft into the

generation, how long shall I be with you? how long shall I suffer you? bring him
hither to me.
] And Jesus rebuked the devil; and he departed out of
him: and the child was cured from that very hour.
] Then came the
disciples to Jesus apart, and said, Why could not we cast him
] 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.
] Howbeit this kind goeth not
out but by prayer and fasting.
] And while they abode in Galilee,
Jesus said unto them, The Son of man shall be betrayed into the hands of
] And they shall kill him, and the third day he shall be
raised again. And they were exceeding sorry.
] And when they were
come to Capernaum, they that received tribute money came to Peter, and said,
Doth not your master pay tribute?
] 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
] Peter saith unto him, Of strangers. Jesus saith
unto him, Then are the children free.
] 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.
] At the same time came the disciples unto Jesus,
saying, Who is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven?
] And Jesus
called a little child unto him, and set him in the midst of them,
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.
therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the
kingdom of heaven.
] And whoso shall receive one such little child
in my name receiveth me.
] 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

off, and cast them from thee: it is better for thee to enter into life halt or

thee: it is better for thee to enter into life with one eye, rather than having
two eyes to be cast into hell fire.
] 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.
] For the
Son of man is come to save that which was lost.
] 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
] 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
] Even so it is not the will of your Father which is in
heaven, that one of these little ones should perish.
] 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

two more, that in the mouth of two or three witnesses every word may be

shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever ye shall loose on
earth shall be loosed in heaven.
] 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.
] For where
two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of

brother sin against me, and I forgive him? till seven times?

certain king, which would take account of his servants.

he had begun to reckon, one was brought unto him, which owed him ten thousand

him to be sold, and his wife, and children, and all that he had, and payment to

saying, Lord, have patience with me, and I will pay thee all.
Then the lord of that servant was moved with compassion, and loosed him, and
forgave him the debt.
] 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.
And his fellowservant fell down at his feet, and besought him, saying, Have
patience with me, and I will pay thee all.
] And he would not: but
went and cast him into prison, till he should pay the debt.
when his fellowservants saw what was done, they were very sorry, and came and
told unto their lord all that was done.
] 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:
] Shouldest not thou also have had
compassion on thy fellowservant, even as I had pity on thee?
his lord was wroth, and delivered him to the tormentors, till he should pay all
that was due unto him.

also unto you, if ye from your hearts forgive not every one his brother their

these sayings, he departed from Galilee, and came into the coasts of Judaea

more twain, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let not man

a writing of divorcement, and to put her away?
] 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.
] 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

man be so with his wife, it is not good to marry.

were there brought unto him little children, that he should put his hands on
them, and pray: and the disciples rebuked them.
] But Jesus said,
Suffer little children, and forbid them not, to come unto me: for of such is the
kingdom of heaven.

] And, behold, one came and said unto him, Good Master,
what good thing shall I do, that I may have eternal life?

said unto him, Why callest thou me good? there is none good but one, that is,

commit adultery, Thou shalt not steal, Thou shalt not bear false

thy neighbour as thyself.
] The young man saith unto him, All these
things have I kept from my youth up: what lack I yet?

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

sorrowful: for he had great possessions.
] Then said Jesus unto his
disciples, Verily I say unto you, That a rich man shall hardly enter into the
kingdom of heaven.
] 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.
] When his disciples heard it, they were
exceedingly amazed, saying, Who then can be saved?
] But Jesus
beheld them, and said unto them, With men this is impossible; but with God all
things are possible.
] Then answered Peter and said unto him,
Behold, we have forsaken all, and followed thee; what shall we have

the throne of his glory, ye also shall sit upon twelve thrones, judging the
twelve tribes of Israel.

an householder, which went out early in the morning to hire labourers into his

day, he sent them into his vineyard.

third hour, and saw others standing idle in the marketplace,
said unto them; Go ye also into the vineyard, and whatsoever is right I will
give you. And they went their way.
] Again he went out about the
sixth and ninth hour, and did likewise.
] 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?
] 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.
] 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.
] And when they came
that were hired about the eleventh hour, they received every man a

were moved with indignation against the two brethren.

when they heard that Jesus passed by, cried out, saying, Have mercy on us, O
Lord, thou Son of David.
] 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.

them, and said, What will ye that I shall do unto you?
] They say
unto him, Lord, that our eyes may be opened.

compassion on them, and touched their eyes: and immediately their eyes received
sight, and they followed him.

to Bethphage, unto the mount of Olives, then sent Jesus two

spoken by the prophet, saying,
] 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.
] And the disciples went, and did as Jesus commanded
] And brought the ass, and the colt, and put on them their
clothes, and they set him thereon.
] And a very great multitude
spread their garments in the way; others cut down branches from the trees, and
strawed them in the way.
] 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.
] And when
he was come into Jerusalem, all the city was moved, saying, Who is
] And the multitude said, This is Jesus the prophet of
Nazareth of Galilee.
] 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,
said unto them, It is written, My house shall be called the house of prayer; but
ye have made it a den of thieves.
] And the blind and the lame came
to him in the temple; and he healed them.
] 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

Jesus saith unto them, Yea; have ye never read, Out of the mouth of babes and
sucklings thou hast perfected praise?
] And he left them, and went
out of the city into Bethany; and he lodged there.
] Now in the
morning as he returned into the city, he hungered.
] 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.
] And when the disciples saw
it, they marvelled, saying, How soon is the fig tree withered
] 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.
] And all things,
whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive.
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?
] 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.

with themselves, saying, If we shall say, From heaven; he will say unto us, Why

] But if we shall say, Of men; we fear
the people; for all hold John as a prophet.

Jesus, and said, We cannot tell. And he said unto them, Neither tell I you by
what authority I do these things.

man had two sons; and he came to the first, and said, Son, go work to day in my

repented, and went.

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.

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

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:

his servants to the husbandmen, that they might receive the fruits of

killed another, and stoned another.

more than the first: and they did unto them likewise.

all he sent unto them his son, saying, They will reverence my

themselves, This is the heir; come, let us kill him, and let us seize on his

vineyard, and slew him.

cometh, what will he do unto those husbandmen?

other husbandmen, which shall render him the fruits in their

when the chief priests and Pharisees had heard his parables, they perceived that
he spake of them.
] But when they sought to lay hands on him, they
feared the multitude, because they took him for a prophet.
] And Jesus answered and spake unto them again by
parables, and said,
] The kingdom of heaven is like unto a certain
king, which made a marriage for his son,
] And sent forth his
servants to call them that were bidden to the wedding: and they would not

are bidden, Behold, I have prepared my dinner: my oxen and my fatlings are
killed, and all things are ready: come unto the marriage.

spitefully, and slew them.
] But when the king heard thereof, he was
wroth: and he sent forth his armies, and destroyed those murderers, and burned
up their city.
] Then saith he to his servants, The wedding is
ready, but they which were bidden were not worthy.
] Go ye therefore
into the highways, and as many as ye shall find, bid to the
] 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.
] And when the king came in to see the
guests, he saw there a man which had not on a wedding garment:
And he saith unto him, Friend, how camest thou in hither not having a wedding
garment? And he was speechless.
] 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.
] For many
are called, but few are chosen.
] Then went the Pharisees, and took
counsel how they might entangle him in his talk.
] 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.
] Tell us therefore,
What thinkest thou? Is it lawful to give tribute unto Caesar, or

me, ye hypocrites?
] Shew me the tribute money. And they brought
unto him a penny.
] And he saith unto them, Whose is this image and

them, Render therefore unto Caesar the things which are Caesar's; and unto God
the things that are God's.
] When they had heard these words, they
marvelled, and left him, and went their way.
] The same day came to
him the Sadducees, which say that there is no resurrection, and asked
] Saying, Master, Moses said, If a man die, having no
children, his brother shall marry his wife, and raise up seed unto his

knowing the scriptures, nor the power of God.
] For in the
resurrection they neither marry, nor are given in marriage, but are as the
angels of God in heaven.
] But as touching the resurrection of the
dead, have ye not read that which was spoken unto you by God,
] 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.
And when the multitude heard this, they were astonished at his

Pharisees were gathered together, Jesus asked them,

wise, Give us of your oil; for our lamps are gone out.

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.

they went to buy, the bridegroom came; and they that were ready went in with him

hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from
the foundation of the world:

meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me
] Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I
was in prison, and ye came unto me.

answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, and fed thee? or thirsty,
and gave thee drink?
] When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee
in? or naked, and clothed thee?
] Or when saw we thee sick, or in
prison, and came unto thee?

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.

he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into
everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels:

was an hungred, and ye gave me no meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me no

you, Inasmuch as ye did it not to one of the least of these, ye did it not to

righteous into life eternal.

these sayings, he said unto his disciples,

days is the feast of the passover, and the Son of man is betrayed to be

scribes, and the elders of the people, unto the palace of the high priest, who
was called Caiaphas,

subtilty, and kill him.
] But they said, Not on the feast day, lest
there be an uproar among the people.
] Now when Jesus was in
Bethany, in the house of Simon the leper,
] 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.
] But when his disciples saw it, they had
indignation, saying, To what purpose is this waste?
] For this
ointment might have been sold for much, and given to the poor.
When Jesus understood it, he said unto them, Why trouble ye the woman? for she
hath wrought a good work upon me.
] For ye have the poor always
with you; but me ye have not always.
] For in that she hath poured
this ointment on my body, she did it for my burial.

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

disciples came to Jesus, saying unto him, Where wilt thou that we prepare for
thee to eat the passover?
] 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.
] And the disciples did as
Jesus had appointed them; and they made ready the passover.
when the even was come, he sat down with the twelve.
] And as they
did eat, he said, Verily I say unto you, that one of you shall betray
] And they were exceeding sorrowful, and began every one of
them to say unto him, Lord, is it I?
] And he answered and said, He
that dippeth his hand with me in the dish, the same shall betray
] 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.
] Then Judas, which betrayed him, answered and
said, Master, is it I? He said unto him, Thou hast said.
] 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.
] And he took
the cup, and gave thanks, and gave it to them, saying, Drink ye all of

many for the remission of sins.
] 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.
] And when they had sung an hymn,
they went out into the mount of Olives.

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

be offended because of thee, yet will I never be offended.

thou shalt deny me thrice.

die with thee, yet will I not deny thee. Likewise also said all the

Gethsemane, and saith unto the disciples, Sit ye here, while I go and pray
] And he took with him Peter and the two sons of Zebedee,
and began to be sorrowful and very heavy.
] Then saith he unto
them, My soul is exceeding sorrowful, even unto death: tarry ye here, and watch
] And he went a little further, 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.
] And he cometh unto
the disciples, and findeth them asleep, and saith unto Peter, What, could ye not
watch with me one hour?
] Watch and pray, that ye enter not into
temptation: the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.
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.
And he came and found them asleep again: for their eyes were

third time, saying the same words.

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

priests and elders of the people.

them a sign, saying, Whomsoever I shall kiss, that same is he: hold him
] And forthwith he came to Jesus, and said, Hail, master; and
] And Jesus said unto him, Friend, wherefore art thou
come? Then came they, and laid hands on Jesus, and took him.
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

place: for all they that take the sword shall perish with the
] Thinkest thou that I cannot now pray to my Father, and he
shall presently give me more than twelve legions of angels?
how then shall the scriptures be fulfilled, that thus it must be?
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.
] But all this was done,
that the scriptures of the prophets might be fulfilled. Then all the disciples
forsook him, and fled.
] And they that had laid hold on Jesus led
him away to Caiaphas the high priest, where the scribes and the elders were
] But Peter followed him afar off unto the high priest's
palace, and went in, and sat with the servants, to see the end.
Now the chief priests, and elders, and all the council, sought false witness
against Jesus, to put him to death;

many false witnesses came, yet found they none. At the last came two false

temple of God, and to build it in three days.

arose, and said unto him, Answerest thou nothing? what is it which these witness

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.

man sitting on the right hand of power, and coming in the clouds of

spoken blasphemy; what further need have we of witnesses? behold, now ye have
heard his blasphemy.
] What think ye? They answered and said, He is
guilty of death.
] Then did they spit in his face, and buffeted
him; and others smote him with the palms of their hands,
Prophesy unto us, thou Christ, Who is he that smote thee?
Peter sat without in the palace: and a damsel came unto him, saying, Thou also
wast with Jesus of Galilee.
] But he denied before them all,
saying, I know not what thou sayest.
] 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.
] And again he denied with
an oath, I do not know the man.
] 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.
] Then began he to curse and to swear,
saying, I know not the man. And immediately the cock crew.
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.
] When the morning was come, all the chief priests and
elders of the people took counsel against Jesus to put him to

delivered him to Pontius Pilate the governor.
] 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

blood. And they said, What is that to us? see thou to that.

cast down the pieces of silver in the temple, and departed, and went and hanged

It is not lawful for to put them into the treasury, because it is the price of

field, to bury strangers in.
] Wherefore that field was called, The
field of blood, unto this day.

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

governor asked him, saying, Art thou the King of the Jews? And Jesus said unto
him, Thou sayest.
] And when he was accused of the chief priests
and elders, he answered nothing.
] Then said Pilate unto him,
Hearest thou not how many things they witness against thee?
he answered him to never a word; insomuch that the governor marvelled
] Now at that feast the governor was wont to release unto
the people a prisoner, whom they would.
] And they had then a
notable prisoner, called Barabbas.
] 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?
] For he knew that for
envy they had delivered him.
] 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

that they should ask Barabbas, and destroy Jesus.

answered and said unto them, Whether of the twain will ye that I release unto
you? They said, Barabbas.
] Pilate saith unto them, What shall I do
then with Jesus which is called Christ? They all say unto him, Let him be

But they cried out the more, saying, Let him be crucified.
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.
] Then answered all
the people, and said, His blood be on us, and on our children.
Then released he Barabbas unto them: and when he had scourged Jesus, he
delivered him to be crucified.
] Then the soldiers of the governor
took Jesus into the common hall, and gathered unto him the whole band of

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!
] And they spit
upon him, and took the reed, and smote him on the head.
] 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.

out, they found a man of Cyrene, Simon by name: him they compelled to bear his

is to say, a place of a skull,

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.

accusation written, THIS IS JESUS THE KING OF THE JEWS.

there two thieves crucified with him, one on the right hand, and another on the

scribes and elders, said,

save. If he be the King of Israel, let him now come down from the cross, and we
will believe him.

he will have him: for he said, I am the Son of God.
] The thieves
also, which were crucified with him, cast the same in his teeth.
Now from the sixth hour there was darkness over all the land unto the ninth
] 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?
] Some of them that stood there, when they heard
that, said, This man calleth for Elias.
] 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.

Elias will come to save him.

a loud voice, yielded up the ghost.

temple was rent in twain from the top to the bottom; and the earth did quake,
and the rocks rent;

his resurrection, and went into the holy city, and appeared unto

himself was Jesus' disciple:
] He went to Pilate, and begged the
body of Jesus. Then Pilate commanded the body to be delivered.
And when Joseph had taken the body, he wrapped it in a clean linen
] 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
] And there was Mary Magdalene, and the other Mary,
sitting over against the sepulchre.
] Now the next day, that
followed the day of the preparation, the chief priests and Pharisees came
together unto Pilate,
] Saying, Sir, we remember that that deceiver
said, while he was yet alive, After three days I will rise again.
Command therefore that the sepulchre be made sure until the third day, lest his

it as sure as ye can.
] So they went, and made the sepulchre sure,
sealing the stone, and setting a watch.
] 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

angel of the Lord descended from heaven, and came and rolled back the stone from
the door, and sat upon it.
] His countenance was like lightning, and
his raiment white as snow:

departed quickly from the sepulchre with fear and great joy; and did run to
bring his disciples word.

] 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.
