||The beginning of the gospel of Jesus Christ, the Son of God;

shall prepare thy way before thee.

||John did baptize in the wilderness, and preach the baptism of repentance for the
remission of sins.
||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.
||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;
||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.
||I indeed have baptized you with water: but he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost.
||And it came to pass in those days, that Jesus came from Nazareth of Galilee, and was
baptized of John in Jordan.
||And straightway coming up out of the water, he saw the heavens opened, and the Spirit
like a dove descending upon him:
||And there came a voice from heaven, saying, Thou art my beloved Son, in whom I am well
||And immediately the spirit driveth him into the wilderness.
||And he was there in the wilderness forty days, tempted of Satan; and was with the wild
beasts; and the angels ministered unto him.
||Now after that John was put in prison, Jesus came into Galilee, preaching the gospel
of the kingdom of God,
||And saying, The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and
believe the gospel.
||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.
||And Jesus said unto them, Come ye after me, and I will make you to become fishers of
||And straightway they forsook their nets, and followed him.
||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.
||And straightway he called them: and they left their father Zebedee in the ship with
the hired servants, and went after him.
||And they went into Capernaum; and straightway on the sabbath day he entered into the
synagogue, and taught.
||And they were astonished at his doctrine: for he taught them as one that had
authority, and not as the scribes.
||And there was in their synagogue a man with an unclean spirit; and he cried out,
||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.
||And Jesus rebuked him, saying, Hold thy peace, and come out of him.
||And when the unclean spirit had torn him, and cried with a loud voice, he came out of
||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.
||And immediately his fame spread abroad throughout all the region round about Galilee.
||And forthwith, when they were come out of the synagogue, they entered into the house
of Simon and Andrew, with James and John.
||But Simon's wife's mother lay sick of a fever, and anon they tell him of her.
||And he came and took her by the hand, and lifted her up; and immediately the fever
left her, and she ministered unto them.
||And at even, when the sun did set, they brought unto him all that were diseased, and
them that were possessed with devils.
||And all the city was gathered together at the door.
||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.
||And in the morning, rising up a great while before day, he went out, and departed into
a solitary place, and there prayed.
||And Simon and they that were with him followed after him.
||And when they had found him, they said unto him, All men seek for thee.
||And he said unto them, Let us go into the next towns, that I may preach there also:
for therefore came I forth.
||And he preached in their synagogues throughout all Galilee, and cast out devils.
||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.
||And Jesus, moved with compassion, put forth his hand, and touched him, and saith unto
him, I will; be thou clean.
||And as soon as he had spoken, immediately the leprosy departed from him, and he was
||And he straitly charged him, and forthwith sent him away;
||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.
||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.
||And again he entered into Capernaum after some days; and it was noised that he was in
||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.
||And they come unto him, bringing one sick of the palsy, which was borne of four.
||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.
||When Jesus saw their faith, he said unto the sick of the palsy, Son, thy sins be
||But there was certain of the scribes sitting there, and reasoning in their hearts,
||Why doth this man thus speak blasphemies? who can forgive sins but God only?
||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?
||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?
||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,)
||I say unto thee, Arise, and take up thy bed, and go thy way into thine house.
||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.
||And he went forth again by the sea side; and all the multitude resorted unto him, and
he taught them.
||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.
||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
||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?
||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
||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
||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.
||But the days will come, when the bridegroom shall be taken away from them, and then
shall they fast in those days.
||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.
||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.
||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.
||And the Pharisees said unto him, Behold, why do they on the sabbath day that which is
||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?
||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?
||And he said unto them, The sabbath was made for man, and not man for the sabbath:
||Therefore the Son of man is Lord also of the sabbath.
||And he entered again into the synagogue; and there was a man there which had a

||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.
||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.
||And the Pharisees went forth, and straightway took counsel with the Herodians against
him, how they might destroy him.
||But Jesus withdrew himself with his disciples to the sea: and a great multitude from
Galilee followed him, and from Judaea,
||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.
||And he spake to his disciples, that a small ship should wait on him because of the
multitude, lest they should throng him.
||For he had healed many; insomuch that they pressed upon him for to touch him, as many
as had plagues.
||And unclean spirits, when they saw him, fell down before him, and cried, saying, Thou
art the Son of God.
||And he straitly charged them that they should not make him known.
||And he goeth up into a mountain, and calleth unto him whom he would: and they came
||And he ordained twelve, that they should be with him, and that he might send them
forth to preach,
||And to have power to heal sicknesses, and to cast out devils:
||And Simon he surnamed Peter;
||And James the son of Zebedee, and John the brother of James; and he surnamed them
Boanerges, which is, The sons of thunder:
||And Andrew, and Philip, and Bartholomew, and Matthew, and Thomas, and James the son of
Alphaeus, and Thaddaeus, and Simon the Canaanite,
||And Judas Iscariot, which also betrayed him: and they went into an house.
||And the multitude cometh together again, so that they could not so much as eat bread.
||And when his friends heard of it, they went out to lay hold on him: for they said, He
is beside himself.
||And the scribes which came down from Jerusalem said, He hath Beelzebub, and by the
prince of the devils casteth he out devils.
||And he called them unto him, and said unto them in parables, How can Satan cast out
||And if a kingdom be divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand.
||And if a house be divided against itself, that house cannot stand.
||And if Satan rise up against himself, and be divided, he cannot stand, but hath an
||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.
||Verily I say unto you, All sins shall be forgiven unto the sons of men, and
blasphemies wherewith soever they shall blaspheme:
||But he that shall blaspheme against the Holy Ghost hath never forgiveness, but is in
danger of eternal damnation.
||Because they said, He hath an unclean spirit.
||There came then his brethren and his mother, and, standing without, sent unto him,
||And the multitude sat about him, and they said unto him, Behold, thy mother and thy
brethren without seek for thee.
||And he answered them, saying, Who is my mother, or my brethren?
||And he looked round about on them which sat about him, and said, Behold my mother and
||For whosoever shall do the will of God, the same is my brother, and my sister, and
||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.
||And he taught them many things by parables, and said unto them in his doctrine,
||Hearken; Behold, there went out a sower to sow:
||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.
||And some fell on stony ground, where it had not much earth; and immediately it sprang
up, because it had no depth of earth:
||But when the sun was up, it was scorched; and because it had no root, it withered
||And some fell among thorns, and the thorns grew up, and choked it, and it yielded no
||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.
||And he said unto them, He that hath ears to hear, let him hear.
||And when he was alone, they that were about him with the twelve asked of him the
||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:
||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
||And he said unto them, Know ye not this parable? and how then will ye know all
||The sower soweth the word.
||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.
||And these are they likewise which are sown on stony ground; who, when they have heard
the word, immediately receive it with gladness;
||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.
||And these are they which are sown among thorns; such as hear the word,
||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.
||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.
||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?
||For there is nothing hid, which shall not be manifested; neither was any thing kept
secret, but that it should come abroad.
||If any man have ears to hear, let him hear.
||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.
||For he that hath, to him shall be given: and he that hath not, from him shall be taken
even that which he hath.
||And he said, So is the kingdom of God, as if a man should cast seed into the ground;
||And should sleep, and rise night and day, and the seed should spring and grow up, he
knoweth not how.
||For the earth bringeth forth fruit of herself; first the blade, then the ear, after
that the full corn in the ear.
||But when the fruit is brought forth, immediately he putteth in the sickle, because the
harvest is come.
||And he said, Whereunto shall we liken the kingdom of God? or with what comparison
shall we compare it?
||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:
||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.
||And with many such parables spake he the word unto them, as they were able to hear it.
||But without a parable spake he not unto them: and when they were alone, he expounded
all things to his disciples.
||And the same day, when the even was come, he saith unto them, Let us pass over unto
the other side.
||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.
||And there arose a great storm of wind, and the waves beat into the ship, so that it
was now full.
||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?
||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.
||And he said unto them, Why are ye so fearful? how is it that ye have no faith?
||And they feared exceedingly, and said one to another, What manner of man is this, that
even the wind and the sea obey him?
||And they came over unto the other side of the sea, into the country of the Gadarenes.
||And when he was come out of the ship, immediately there met him out of the tombs a man
with an unclean spirit,
||Who had his dwelling among the tombs; and no man could bind him, no, not with chains:
||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.
||And always, night and day, he was in the mountains, and in the tombs, crying, and
cutting himself with stones.
||But when he saw Jesus afar off, he ran and worshipped him,
||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.
||For he said unto him, Come out of the man, thou unclean spirit.
||And he asked him, What is thy name? And he answered, saying, My name is Legion: for we
||And he besought him much that he would not send them away out of the country.
||Now there was there nigh unto the mountains a great herd of swine feeding.
||And all the devils besought him, saying, Send us into the swine, that we may enter
||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.
||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.
||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.
||And they that saw it told them how it befell to him that was possessed with the devil,
and also concerning the swine.
||And they began to pray him to depart out of their coasts.
||And when he was come into the ship, he that had been possessed with the devil prayed
him that he might be with him.
||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.
||And he departed, and began to publish in Decapolis how great things Jesus had done for
him: and all men did marvel.
||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.
||And, behold, there cometh one of the rulers of the synagogue, Jairus by name; and when
he saw him, he fell at his feet,
||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.
||And Jesus went with him; and much people followed him, and thronged him.
||And a certain woman, which had an issue of blood twelve years,
||And had suffered many things of many physicians, and had spent all that she had, and
was nothing bettered, but rather grew worse,
||When she had heard of Jesus, came in the press behind, and touched his garment.
||For she said, If I may touch but his clothes, I shall be whole.
||And straightway the fountain of her blood was dried up; and she felt in her body that
she was healed of that plague.
||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?
||And his disciples said unto him, Thou seest the multitude thronging thee, and sayest
thou, Who touched me?
||And he looked round about to see her that had done this thing.
||But the woman fearing and trembling, knowing what was done in her, came and fell down
before him, and told him all the truth.
||And he said unto her, Daughter, thy faith hath made thee whole; go in peace, and be
whole of thy plague.
||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?
||As soon as Jesus heard the word that was spoken, he saith unto the ruler of the
synagogue, Be not afraid, only believe.
||And he suffered no man to follow him, save Peter, and James, and John the brother of
||And he cometh to the house of the ruler of the synagogue, and seeth the tumult, and
them that wept and wailed greatly.
||And when he was come in, he saith unto them, Why make ye this ado, and weep? the
damsel is not dead, but sleepeth.
||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.
||And he took the damsel by the hand, and said unto her, Talitha cumi; which is, being
interpreted, Damsel, I say unto thee, arise.
||And straightway the damsel arose, and walked; for she was of the age of twelve years.
And they were astonished with a great astonishment.
||And he charged them straitly that no man should know it; and commanded that something
should be given her to eat.
||And he went out from thence, and came into his own country; and his disciples follow
||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
||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.
||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.
||And he could there do no mighty work, save that he laid his hands upon a few sick
folk, and healed them.
||And he marvelled because of their unbelief. And he went round about the villages,
||And he called unto him the twelve, and began to send them forth by two and two; and
gave them power over unclean spirits;
||And commanded them that they should take nothing for their journey, save a staff only;
no scrip, no bread, no money in their purse:
||But be shod with sandals; and not put on two coats.
||And he said unto them, In what place soever ye enter into an house, there abide till
ye depart from that place.
||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.
||And they went out, and preached that men should repent.
||And they cast out many devils, and anointed with oil many that were sick, and healed
||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
||Others said, That it is Elias. And others said, That it is a prophet, or as one of the
||But when Herod heard thereof, he said, It is John, whom I beheaded: he is risen from
||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.
||For John had said unto Herod, It is not lawful for thee to have thy brother's wife.
||Therefore Herodias had a quarrel against him, and would have killed him; but she could
||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.
||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;
||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.
||And he sware unto her, Whatsoever thou shalt ask of me, I will give it thee, unto the
half of my kingdom.
||And she went forth, and said unto her mother, What shall I ask? And she said, The head
of John the Baptist.
||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.
||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.
||And immediately the king sent an executioner, and commanded his head to be brought:
and he went and beheaded him in the prison,
||And brought his head in a charger, and gave it to the damsel: and the damsel gave it
to her mother.
||And when his disciples heard of it, they came and took up his corpse, and laid it in a
||And the apostles gathered themselves together unto Jesus, and told him all things,
both what they had done, and what they had taught.
||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.
||And they departed into a desert place by ship privately.
||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.
||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
||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:
||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.
||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?
||He saith unto them, How many loaves have ye? go and see. And when they knew, they say,
Five, and two fishes.
||And he commanded them to make all sit down by companies upon the green grass.
||And they sat down in ranks, by hundreds, and by fifties.
||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.
||And they did all eat, and were filled.
||And they took up twelve baskets full of the fragments, and of the fishes.
||And they that did eat of the loaves were about five thousand men.
||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.
||And when he had sent them away, he departed into a mountain to pray.
||And when even was come, the ship was in the midst of the sea, and he alone on the
||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
||But when they saw him walking upon the sea, they supposed it had been a spirit, and
||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.
||And he went up unto them into the ship; and the wind ceased: and they were sore amazed
in themselves beyond measure, and wondered.
||For they considered not the miracle of the loaves: for their heart was hardened.
||And when they had passed over, they came into the land of Gennesaret, and drew to the
||And when they were come out of the ship, straightway they knew him,
||And ran through that whole region round about, and began to carry about in beds those
that were sick, where they heard he was.
||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.
||Then came together unto him the Pharisees, and certain of the scribes, which came from
||And when they saw some of his disciples eat bread with defiled, that is to say, with
unwashen, hands, they found fault.
||For the Pharisees, and all the Jews, except they wash their hands oft, eat not,
holding the tradition of the elders.
||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.
||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?
||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.
||Howbeit in vain do they worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.
||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.
||And he said unto them, Full well ye reject the commandment of God, that ye may keep
your own tradition.
||For Moses said, Honour thy father and thy mother; and, Whoso curseth father or mother,
let him die the death:
||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.
||And ye suffer him no more to do ought for his father or his mother;
||Making the word of God of none effect through your tradition, which ye have delivered:
and many such like things do ye.
||And when he had called all the people unto him, he said unto them, Hearken unto me
every one of you, and understand:
||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.
||If any man have ears to hear, let him hear.
||And when he was entered into the house from the people, his disciples asked him
concerning the parable.
||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;
||Because it entereth not into his heart, but into the belly, and goeth out into the
draught, purging all meats?
||And he said, That which cometh out of the man, that defileth the man.
||For from within, out of the heart of men, proceed evil thoughts, adulteries,
||Thefts, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, lasciviousness, an evil eye, blasphemy,
||All these evil things come from within, and defile the man.
||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.
||For a certain woman, whose young daughter had an unclean spirit, heard of him, and
came and fell at his feet:
||The woman was a Greek, a Syrophenician by nation; and she besought him that he would
cast forth the devil out of her daughter.
||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.
||And she answered and said unto him, Yes, Lord: yet the dogs under the table eat of the
||And he said unto her, For this saying go thy way; the devil is gone out of thy
||And when she was come to her house, she found the devil gone out, and her daughter
laid upon the bed.
||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.
||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.
||And he took him aside from the multitude, and put his fingers into his ears, and he
spit, and touched his tongue;
||And looking up to heaven, he sighed, and saith unto him, Ephphatha, that is, Be
||And straightway his ears were opened, and the string of his tongue was loosed, and he
||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;
||And were beyond measure astonished, saying, He hath done all things well: he maketh
both the deaf to hear, and the dumb to speak.
||In those days the multitude being very great, and having nothing to eat, Jesus called
his disciples unto him, and saith unto them,
||I have compassion on the multitude, because they have now been with me three days, and
have nothing to eat:
||And if I send them away fasting to their own houses, they will faint by the way: for
divers of them came from far.
||And his disciples answered him, From whence can a man satisfy these men with bread
here in the wilderness?
||And he asked them, How many loaves have ye? And they said, Seven.
||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.
||And they had a few small fishes: and he blessed, and commanded to set them also before
||So they did eat, and were filled: and they took up of the broken meat that was left
||And they that had eaten were about four thousand: and he sent them away.
||And straightway he entered into a ship with his disciples, and came into the parts of
||And the Pharisees came forth, and began to question with him, seeking of him a sign
from heaven, tempting him.
||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.
||And he left them, and entering into the ship again departed to the other side.
||Now the disciples had forgotten to take bread, neither had they in the ship with them
more than one loaf.
||And he charged them, saying, Take heed, beware of the leaven of the Pharisees, and of
the leaven of Herod.
||And they reasoned among themselves, saying, It is because we have no bread.
||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?
||Having eyes, see ye not? and having ears, hear ye not? and do ye not remember?
||When I brake the five loaves among five thousand, how many baskets full of fragments
took ye up? They say unto him, Twelve.
||And when the seven among four thousand, how many baskets full of fragments took ye up?
And they said, Seven.
||And he said unto them, How is it that ye do not understand?
||And he cometh to Bethsaida; and they bring a blind man unto him, and besought him to
||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.
||And he looked up, and said, I see men as trees, walking.
||After that he put his hands again upon his eyes, and made him look up: and he was
restored, and saw every man clearly.
||And he sent him away to his house, saying, Neither go into the town, nor tell it to
any in the town.
||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?
||And they answered, John the Baptist; but some say, Elias; and others, One of the
||And he saith unto them, But whom say ye that I am? And Peter answereth and saith unto
him, Thou art the Christ.
||And he charged them that they should tell no man of him.
||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.
||And he spake that saying openly. And Peter took him, and began to rebuke him.
||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.
||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.
||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.
||For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own
||Or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?
||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.
||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
||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.
||And his raiment became shining, exceeding white as snow; so as no fuller on earth can
||And there appeared unto them Elias with Moses: and they were talking with Jesus.
||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.
||For he wist not what to say; for they were sore afraid.
||And there was a cloud that overshadowed them: and a voice came out of the cloud,
saying, This is my beloved Son: hear him.
||And suddenly, when they had looked round about, they saw no man any more, save Jesus
only with themselves.
||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.
||And they kept that saying with themselves, questioning one with another what the
rising from the dead should mean.
||And they asked him, saying, Why say the scribes that Elias must first come?
||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
||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.
||And when he came to his disciples, he saw a great multitude about them, and the
scribes questioning with them.
||And straightway all the people, when they beheld him, were greatly amazed, and running
to him saluted him.
||And he asked the scribes, What question ye with them?
||And one of the multitude answered and said, Master, I have brought unto thee my son,
which hath a dumb spirit;
||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.
||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.
||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.
||And he asked his father, How long is it ago since this came unto him? And he said, Of
||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.
||Jesus said unto him, If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that
||And straightway the father of the child cried out, and said with tears, Lord, I
believe; help thou mine unbelief.
||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.
||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.
||But Jesus took him by the hand, and lifted him up; and he arose.
||And when he was come into the house, his disciples asked him privately, Why could not
we cast him out?
||And he said unto them, This kind can come forth by nothing, but by prayer and fasting.
||And they departed thence, and passed through Galilee; and he would not that any man
should know it.
||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
||But they understood not that saying, and were afraid to ask him.
||And he came to Capernaum: and being in the house he asked them, What was it that ye
disputed among yourselves by the way?
||But they held their peace: for by the way they had disputed among themselves, who
should be the greatest.
||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.
||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,
||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.
||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.
||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.
||For he that is not against us is on our part.
||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.
||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.
||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:
||Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.
||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
||Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.
||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:
||Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.
||For every one shall be salted with fire, and every sacrifice shall be salted with
||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.
||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.
||And the Pharisees came to him, and asked him, Is it lawful for a man to put away his
wife? tempting him.
||And he answered and said unto them, What did Moses command you?
||And they said, Moses suffered to write a bill of divorcement, and to put her away.
||And Jesus answered and said unto them, For the hardness of your heart he wrote you
||But from the beginning of the creation God made them male and female.
||For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and cleave to his wife;
||And they twain shall be one flesh: so then they are no more twain, but one flesh.
||What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder.
||And in the house his disciples asked him again of the same matter.
||And he saith unto them, Whosoever shall put away his wife, and marry another,
committeth adultery against her.
||And if a woman shall put away her husband, and be married to another, she committeth
||And they brought young children to him, that he should touch them: and his disciples
rebuked those that brought them.
||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.
||Verily I say unto you, Whosoever shall not receive the kingdom of God as a little
child, he shall not enter therein.
||And he took them up in his arms, put his hands upon them, and blessed them.
||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?
||And Jesus said unto him, Why callest thou me good? there is none good but one, that
||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.
||And he answered and said unto him, Master, all these have I observed from my youth.
||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.
||And he was sad at that saying, and went away grieved: for he had great possessions.
||And Jesus looked round about, and saith unto his disciples, How hardly shall they that
have riches enter into the kingdom of God!
||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!
||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.
||And they were astonished out of measure, saying among themselves, Who then can be
||And Jesus looking upon them saith, With men it is impossible, but not with God: for
with God all things are possible.
||Then Peter began to say unto him, Lo, we have left all, and have followed thee.
||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,
||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
||But many that are first shall be last; and the last first.
||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,
||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:
||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.
||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.
||And he said unto them, What would ye that I should do for you?
||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.
||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?
||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:
||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.
||And when the ten heard it, they began to be much displeased with James and John.
||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.
||But so shall it not be among you: but whosoever will be great among you, shall be your
||And whosoever of you will be the chiefest, shall be servant of all.
||For even the Son of man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give
his life a ransom for many.
||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.
||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.
||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.
||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.
||And he, casting away his garment, rose, and came to Jesus.
||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.
||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.
