love salutations in the market-places, and chief seats in the syna47 gogues, and chief places at feasts; which devour widows' houses,

and for a pretence make long prayers: these shall receive greater

condemnation. 21 Aud he looked up, and saw the rich men that were casting

2 their gifts into the treasury. And he saw a certain poor widow

3 casting in thither two mites. And he said, Of a truth I say unto

4 you. This poor widow cast in more than they all: for all these did of their superfluity cast in unto the gifts: but she of her want did cast in all the living that she had.

5 And as some spake of the temple, how it was adorned with

6 goodly stones and offerings, he said, As for these things which ye behold, the days will come, in which there shall not be left here

7 one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down. And they asked him, saying, Master, when therefore shall these things be? and what shall be the sign when these things are about to

8 come to pass? And he said, Take heed that ye be not led astray: for many shall come in my name, saying, I am he; and, The time

9 is at hand: go ye not after them. And when ye shall hear of wars and tumults, be not terrified: for these things must needs come to pass first; but the end is not immediately.

10 Then said he unto them, Nation shall rise against nation, and

11 kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be great earthquakes, and in divers places famines and pestilences; and there shall be ter

12 rors and great signs from heaven. But before all these things, they shall lay their hands on you, and shall persecute you, delivering you up to the synagogues and prisons, bringing you before kings

13 and governors lor my name's sake. It shall turn unto you for a

14 testimony. Settle it therefore in your hearts, uot to meditate be

15 forehand how to answer: for I will give you a mouth and wisdom, which all your adversaries shall not be able to withstand or

16 to gainsay. But ye shall be delivered up even by parents, and y, brethren, and kinsfolk, and friends; and some of you shall they jo cause to be put to death. And ye shall be hated of all men for ,„ my name's sake. And not a hair of your head shall perish. In

your patience ye shall win your souls.

20 But when ye see Jerusalem compassed with armies, then know

21 that her desolation is at hand. Then let them that are iu Judaea flee unto the mountains; and let them that are in the midst of her depart out; and let not them that are in the country enter therein.

22 For these are days of vengeance, that all things which are written

23 may be fulfilled. "Woe unto them that are with child and to them that give suck in those days! for there shall be greut distress upon

24 the land, and wrath unto this people. And they shall fall by the edge of the sword, and shall be led captive into all the nations: ana Jerusalem shall be trodden down of the Gentiles, until the

25 times of the Qentilesbe fulfilled. And there shall be signs in sun and moon and stars; and upoh the earth distress of nations, in

86 perplexity for the roaring of the sea and the billows; men fainting for fear, and for expectation of the things which are coming on the world: for the powers of the heavens shall be shaken.

27 And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with

28 power and great glory. But when these things begiu to come to pass, look up, and lift up your heads; because your redemption draweth nigh.

29 And he spake to them a parable: Behold the fig tree, and all 80 the trees: when they now shoot forth, ye see it and know of your

31 own selves that the summer is now nigh. Even so ye also, when ye see these things coming to pass, know ye that the kingdom of

32 God is nigh. Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not

33 pass away, till all things be accomplished. Heaven and earth shall pass away: but my words shall not pass away.

84 But take heed to yourselves, lest haply your hearts be overcharged with surfeiting, and drunkenness, and cares of this life.

35 and that day come on you suddenly as a snare: for so shall it come

36 upon all them that dwell on the face of all the earth. But watch ye at eveiy season, making supplication, that ye may prevail to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.

37 And every day he was teaching in the temple; and every night he went out, and lodged in the mount that is called the mount of

88 Olives. Aud all the people came early in the morning to him in

the temple, to hear him. 22 Now the feast of unleavened bread drew nigh, which is called

2 the Passover. And the chief priests and the scribes sought how they might put him to death; for they feared the people.

3 And Satan entered into Judas who was called Iscariot, being of

4 the number of the twelve. And he went away, and communed with the chief priests and captains, how he might deliver him

5 unto them. And they were glad, and covenanted to give him money. And he consented, and sought opportunity to deliver

6 him unto them in the absence of the multitude.

7 And the day of unleavened bread came, on which the passover

8 must be sacrificed. And he sent Peter and John, saying. Go and

9 make ready for us the passover, that we may eat. And they said

10 unto him, Where wilt thou that we make ready? And he said unto them, Behold, when ye are entered into the city, there shall meet you a man bearing a pitcher of water; follow him into the

11 house whereinto he goeth. And ye shall say unto the goodman of the house, The master saith unto thee, Where is the guest

12 chamber, where I shall eat the passover with my disciples? Aud he will shew you a large upper room furnished: there make ready.

13 And they went, aud found as he had said unto them: and they made ready the passover.

14 And when the hour was come, he sat down, and the apostles

15 with him. And he said unto them, With desire I have desired to

16 eat this passover with you before I suffer: for I say unto you, I

17 will not eat it, until it be fulfilled in the kingdom of God. And he received a cup, and when he had given thanks, he said, Take

18 this, and divide it among yourselves: for I say unto you, I will not drink from henceforth the fruit of the vine, until the king

19 tlom of God shall come. And he took hread, and when he had given thanks, he brake it, and gave to them, saying, This is my Iwdy which is given for you: this do in remembrance of mi'.

20 And the cup in like manner after supper, saying, This cup is t!.e new covenant in my blood, even that which is poured out for you.

21 But behold, the hand of him that betrayeth me is with me on the

22 table. For the Son of man indeed goeth, as it hath been determined: but woe unto that man through whom he is betrayed!

23 And they began to question among themselves, which of them it wa3 that should do this thing.

24 And there arose also a contention among them, which of them

25 is accounted to be greatest. And he said unto them, The kiugs of the Gentiles have lordship over them; and they that have

26 authority over them are called Benefactors. But ye slmll not bo so: but he that is the greater among you, let him become as the

27 younger; and he that is chief, as he that doth serve. For whether is greater, he that sitteth at meat, or he that serveth? is not ho that sitteth at meat? but I am in the midst of you as he that

28 serveth. But ye are they which have continued with me in my

29 temptations; and I appoint unto you a kingdom, even as my

30 Father appointed unto me, that ye may eat and drink at my table in my kingdom; and ye shall sit on thrones judging the twelve

31 tribes of Israel. Simon, Simon, behold, Satan asked to have you,

32 that he might sift you as wheat: but I made supplication for thee, that thy faith fail not: and do thou, when once thou hast turned

33 again, stablish thy brethren. And he said unto him, Lord, with

34 thee I am ready to go both to prison and to death. And he said, I tell thee, Peter, the cock shall not crow this day, until thou shalt thrice deny that thou knowest me.

33 And he said unto them, When I sent you forth without purse, and wallet, and shoes, lacked ye any thing? And they said,

36 Nothing. And he said unto them, But now, he that hath a purse, let him take it, and likewise a wallet; and he that hath

37 none, let him sell his cloke, and buy a sword. For I say unto you, that this which is written must be fulfilled in me. And ho was reckoned with transgressors: for that which concerneth me

38 hath fulfilment. And they said, Lord, behold, here are two swords. And he said unto them, It is enough

39 And he came out, and went, as his custom was, unto the mount

40 of Olives; and the disciples also followed him. And when he was at the place, he said unto them. Pray that ye enter not into temp

41 tation. And he was parted from them about a stone's cast; and

42 he kneeled down and prayed, saying, Father, if thou be willing, remove this cup from me: nevertheless not my will, but thine, ba

43 done. And there appeared unto him an angel from heaven,

44 strengthening him. And being in an agony he prayed more

earnestly: and his sweat became as it were great drops of blood 45 falling down upon the ground. And when he rose up from his

prayer, he came unto the disciples, and found them sleeping for 4 5 sorrow, and said unto them, Why sleep ye? rise and pray, that ye

enter not into temptation.

47 While he yet spake, behold, a multitude, and he that was called Judas, one of the twelve, went before them; and he drew near

48 unto Jesus to kiss him. But Jesus said unto him, Judas, betray

49 est thou the Son of man with a kiss? And when they that were about him saw what would follow, they said, Lord, shall we smite

50 with the sword? And a certain one of them smote the servant of

51 the high priest, and struck off his right ear. But Jesus answered and said, Suffer ye thus far. And he touched his ear, and healed

52 him. And Jesus said unto the chief priests, and captains of the temple, and elders, which were come against him, Are ye come

53 out, as against a robber, with swords and staves? When I was daily with you in the temple, ye stretched not forth your hands against me: but this is your hour, and the power of darkness.

54 And they seized him, and led him away, and brought him into

55 the high priest's house. But Peter followed afar off. And when they had kindled a Are in the midst of the court, and had sat

56 down together, Peter sat in the midst of them. And n certain maid seeing him as he sat in the light of the fire, and looking sted

57 fastly upon him, said, This man also was with him. But he

58 denied, saying, Woman, I know him not. And after a little while another saw him, and said, Thou also art one of them. But

59 Peter said, Man, I am not. And after Ihe space of about one hour another confidently affirmed, saying. Of a truth this man

60 also was with him: for he is a Galilaean. But Peter said, Man, I know not what thou sayest. And immediately, while be yet

61 spake, the cock crew. And the Lord turned, r.nd looked upon Peter. And Peter remembered the word of the Lord, how that

62 he said unto him, Before the cock crow this day, thou shalt deny me thrice. And he went out, and wept bitterly.

63 And the men that held Jesus mocked him, and beat him. And

64 they blindfolded him, and asked him, saying, Prophesy: who is C5 he that struck thee? And many other things spake they against

him, reviling him.

66 And as soon as it was day, the assembly of the elders of the people was gathered together, both chief priests and scribes: and

67 they led him away into their council, saying. If thou art the

68 Christ, tell us. But he said unto them, If I tell you, ye will not

69 believe: and if I ask you, ye will not answer. But from henceforth shall the Son of man be seated at the right hand of the

70 power of God. And they all said, Art thou then the Son of God?

71 And he said unto them, Ye say that I am. And they said, What further need have we of witness? for we ourselves have heard from his own mouth.

23 And the whole company of them rose up, and brought him

2 before Pilate. And they began to accuse him, saying, "We found this man perverting our nation, and forbidding to give tribute to

3 Caesar, and saying that he himself is Christ a king. And Pilate asked him, saying, Art thou the King of the Jews? And he

4 answered him and said, Thou sayest. And Pilate said unto the

5 chief priests and the multitudes, I find no fault in this man. But they were the more urgent, saying, He stirreth up the people, teaching throughout all Judaea, and beginning from Galilee even

6 unto this place. But when Pilate heard it, he asked whether the

7 man were a Galilaean. And when he knew that he was of Herod's jurisdiction, he sent him unto Herod, who himself also was at Jerusalem in these days.

8 Now when Herod saw Jesus, he was exceeding glad: for he was of a long time desirous to see him, because he had heard concerning him; and he hoped to see some miracle done by him.

9 And he questioned him in many words; but he answered him

10 nothing. And the chief priests and the scribes stood, vehemently

11 accusing him. And Herod with his soldiers set him at nought, and mocked him, and arraying him in gorgeous apparel sent him

12 back to Pilate. And Herod and Pilate became friends with each other that very day: for before they were at enmity between themselves.

13 And Pilate called together the chief priests and the rulers and

14 the people, and said unto them. Ye brought unto me this man, as one that perverteth the people, and behold, I, having examined him before you, found no fault in th.s man touching those things

15 whereof ye accuse him: no, nor yet Herod. for he sent him back unto us; and behold, nothing worthy of death hath been done by

16 him. I will therefore chastise him, and release him. But they

17 cried out all together saying, Away with this man, and release

18 unto us Barabbas. one who for a certain insurrection made in the

19 city, and for murder, was cast into prison. And Pilate spake

20 unto them again, desiring to release Jesus; but they shouted,

21 saying, Crucify, crucify him. And he said unto them the third

22 time, Why, what evil hath this man done? I have found no cause of death in him: I will therefore chastise him and release

23 him. But they were instant with loud voices, asking that he

24 might be crucified. And their voices prevailed. And Pilate gave

25 sentence that what they asked for should be done. And he released him that for insurrection and murder had been cast into prison, whom they asked for; but Jesus he delivered up to their will.

36 And when they led him away, they laid hold upon one Simon of Cyrene, coming from the country, and laid on him the cross, to bear it after Jesus.

27 And there followed him a great multitude of the people, and of

28 women who bewailed and lamented him. But Jesus turning unto them said, Daughters of Jerusalem, weep not for me, but weep

29 for yourselves, and for your children. For behold, the days are
