foameth, and grindeth [his] teeth, and wasteth away :

and I spake to thy disciples, that they might cast it out ; 19 but they could not.” Then Jesus answered them, and

saith, “ O unbelieving generation, how long shall I be

with you ? how long shall I endure you ? Bring him un20 to me.” And they brought him unto Jesus : and when

he saw Jesus, immediately the spirit convulsed him ; and 21 he fell on the ground, and wallowed, foaming. And

Jesus asked his father, “ How long is it since this hath

befallen him ?” And he said, “ From his childhood. 22 And often it hath cast him into the fire, and into the wa

ters, to destroy him : but if thou canst do any thing, 23 have compassion on us, and help us.” And Jesus said

unto him, “ If thou canst* ? All things are possible to 24 him who believeth.” And immediately the father of the

child cried out, and said with tears, “ I believe : help 25 mine unbelief.” Now when Jesus saw that the multi

tude was running together, he rebuked the unclean spirit, saying unto it, “ Thou dumb and deaf spirit, I command

thee, Come out of him, and enter no more into him." 26 And the spirit cried out, and convulsed [him] much, and

came out of him : and he was as one dead ; so that many 27 said, “ He is dead.” But Jesus took him by the hand 28 and raised him up ; and he arose. And when Jesus was

come into a house, his disciples asked him privately, 29 “ Why could not we cast him out ?” And he said unto

them, “ This kind of demons can come out by nothing but

by prayer and fasting.” 30 And they departed thence, and passed through Ga

lilee ; and he was unwilling that any man should know 31 il. For he taught his disciples, and said unto them, “ The

Son of man is about to be delivered up into the hands of men ; and they will kill him ; and, after he is killed, he

32 will rise again the third day*.” But they understood

not that matter ; and were afraid to ask him. 33 And he came to Capernaum : and, being in a house,

he asked them, “ What was it about which ye disputed 34 among yourselves on the way ?” But they kept silence :

for on the way they had disputed among themselves, who 35 should be greatest. And he sat down, and called the

twelve, and saith unto them, “ If any man desire to be 36 first, he must be last of all, and a servant of all.” And

he took a little child and set him in the midst of them :

and, when he had taken him in his arms, he said unto 37 them, “Whosoever shall receive one of such little chil.

dren in my name, receiveth me : and whosoever shall

receive me, receiveth not me, but him who sent me.” 38 Then John spake to Jesus, saying, “ Master, we saw

one casting out demons in thy name t, and we forbad 39 him.” But Jesus said, “Forbid him not : for there is

none who shall do a mighty work in my name, who 40 can soon speak evil of me. For he that is not against 41 you † is for you. For whosoever shall give you a cup

of water to drink in my name, because ye are Christ's,

verily I say unto you, he shall by no means lose his 42 reward. And whosoever shall cause one of these little

ones, who believe in me, to offend, it is better for him

that a millstone were put about his neck, and that he 43 were cast into the sea. And if thine hand cause thee to

offend, cut it off : it is better for thee to enter maimed

into life, than, having two hands, to go into hell, (into 44 the unquenchable fire ;] where their worm dieth not, 45 and the fire is not quenched. And if thy foot cause thee

to offend, cut it off : it is better for thee to enter into . life lame, than having two feet, to be cast into hell, 46 [into the unquenchable fire ;) where their worm dieth 47 not, and the fire is not quenched. And if thine eye cause thee to offend, pluck it out: it is better for thee to

saltness, wherewith will ye season it ? Have salt in your

selves; and be at peace one with another." CH. X. And he arose thence, and cometh into the borders of 2 Judea, by the further side of Jordan : and the multi

tudes resort to him again : and, as he was wont, he taught them again. And the Pharisees came near, and

asked him," Is it lawful for a man to put away his wife ?” 3 trying him. And he answered and said unto them, 4 6 What did Moses command you?” And they said,

“Moses suffered us to write a bill of divorcement, and to 5 put her away." And Jesus answered and said unto them,

“For the perverseness of your heart he wrote you this 6 precept. But from the beginning of the creation, 2 God 7 made them a male and a female. For this cause a man

will leave his father and mother, and cleave to his wife ; 8 and they two will be one flesh.' So that they are no 9 more two ; but one flesh. What therefore God hath join

ed together, let not man put asunder.” 10 And in a house his disciples asked him again of the 11 same matter. And he saith unto them, “Whosoever

shall put away his wife, and shall marry another, com12 mitteth adultery against her. And if a woman shall put

away her husband, and shall be married to another, she

committeth adultery." 13 And some brought little children to him, that he might

touch them : and his disciples rebuked those who brought 14 them. But when Jesus saw it, he was moved with indig.

nation, and said unto them, “ Suffer the little children to

come unto me, [and] forbid them not : for of such-like 15 is the kingdom of God. Verily I say unto you, Who. soever shall not receive the kingdom of God as a little 16 child, he can by no means enter therein.” And he took

them in his arms, put his hands on them, and blessed

them. 17 And as he went forth into the way, one ran, and kneel

ed down to him, and asked him, " Good Teacher*, what 18 shall I do that I may inherit everlasting life?” And Jesus

said unto him, “Why callest thou me good ? there is none 19 good, but one, that is God. Thou knowest the com

mandments, “Do not commit adultery ; Do no murder ;

Do not steal ; Do not bear false witness ; Defraud not; 20 Honour thy father and mother.' And he answered and

said unto him, “ Teacher*, all these things I have kept 21 from my youth.” Then Jesus looked on him, and loved

him, and said unto him, “One thing thou wantest : go, sell whatsoever thou hast, and give to [the] poor, and

thou shalt have treasure in heaven : and come, (take up 22 the cross, and follow me.” And he was sad at those

words, and went away sorrowful : for he had great pos23 sessions. And Jesus looked round about, and saith to his

disciples, “ With what difficulty will those that have 24 riches enter into the kingdom of God!” And the dis

ciples were astonished at his words. But Jesus spake again, and saith unto them, “Children, how difficult is

it for those who trust in riches, to enter into the kingdom 25 of God! It is easier that a camel should go through the

eye of a needle, than that a rich man should enter into 26 the kingdom of God.” And they were exceedingly

amazed, saying among themselves, “Who then can be 27 saved ?" And Jesus looked on them, and saith, “ With

men it is impossible, but not with God : for with God 28 all things are possible.” Peter began to say unto him, 29 “Lo, we have left all, and have followed thee.” 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 30 sake and for the sake of the gospel, but he shall receive

an hundred-fold now in this time, houses, and brethren, and sisters, and mothers, and children, and lands, with

persecutions*; and in the world to come, everlasting life. 31 But many that are first will be last ; and the last first.” . 32 And they were in the way going up to Jerusalem ; and

Jesus went before them : and they were astonished; and, as they followed, were afraid. And he again took unto

him the twelve, and began to tell them the things which 33 were about to befal him : “ Behold, we are going up to

Jerusalem ; and the Son of man will be delivered up to the chief priests, and to the scribes ; and they will con

demn him to death, and will deliver him up to the gen34 tiles : and these will scoff att him, and will scourge him,

and will spit on him, and will kill him : and the third

day he will rise again.” 35 And James and John, the sons of Zebedee, come to

him, saying, “ Teachert, we request that thou wouldest 36 do for us whatsoever we shall ask.” And he said unto 37 them, “ What request|| ye that I should do for you?”

Then they said unto him, “ Grant unto us that we may

sit, one on thy right hand, and the other on thy left hand, 38 in thy glory.” But Jesus said unto them, “ Ye know

not what ye ask : can ye drink of the cup which I am to

drink of? and be baptized with the baptism which I am 39 to be baptized with ?” And they said unto him, “ We

can." And Jesus said unto them, “ Ye will drink indeed of the cup which I am to drink of; and will be

baptized with the baptism with which I am to be bap40 tized : but to sit on my right hand, and on my left hand,

is not mine to give, but to those for whom it is prepared.” 41 And when the ten heard it, they began to be moved with
