Behold, thy King cometh unto thee,
Meek, and riding upon an ass,
And upon a colt the foal of an ass.

6 And the disciples went, and did even as Jesus appointed them,

7 and brought the ass, and the colt, and put on them their garments;

8 and he sat thereon. And the most part of the multitude spread their garments in the way; and others cut branches from the trees,

9 and spread them in the way. And the multitudes that went before him, and that followed, cried, saying, Hosanna to the son of David: Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord;

10 Hosanna in the highest. And when he was come into Jerusalem,

11 all the city was stirred, saying, Who is this? And the multitudes said, This is the prophet, Jesus, from Nazareth of Galilee.

12 And Jesus entered into the temple of God, and cast out all them that sold and bought in the temple, and overthrew the tables of the money-changers, and the seats of them that sold the doves;

13 and he saith unto them, It is written, My house shall be called a

14 house of prayer: but ye make it a den of robbers. And the blind and the lame came to him in the temple: and he healed them.

15 But when the chief priests and the scribes saw the wonderful things that he did, and the children that were crying in the temple and saying, Hosanna to the son of David; they were moved

16 with indignation, and said unto him, Hearest thou what these are saying? And Jesus saith unto them, Yea: did ye never read, Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings thou hast perfected

17 praise? And he left them, and went forth out of the city to Bethany, and lodged there.

18 Now in the morning as he returned to the city, he hungered.

19 And seeing a fig tree by the way side, he came to it, and found nothing thereon, but leaves only; and he saith unto it, Let there be no fruit from thee henceforward for ever. And immediately

20 the fig tree withered away. And when the disciples saw it, they marvelled, saying, How did the fig tree immediately wither away?

21 And Jesus answered and said unto them, Verily I say unto you, If ye have faith, and doubt not, ye shall not only do what is done to the fig tree, but even if ye shall say unto this mountain, Be thou

22 taken up and cast into the sea, it shall be done. And all things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive.

23 And when he was come into the temple, the chief priests and the elders of the people came unto him as he was teaching, and said, By what authority doest thou these things? and who gave

24 thee this authority? And Jesus answered and said unto them, I also will ask you one question, which if ye tell me, I likewise will

25 tell you by what authority I do these things. The baptism of John, whence was it? from heaven or from men? And theyreasoned with themselves, saying, If we shall say, From heaven; he

26 will say unto us, Why then did ye not believe him? But if we shall say, From men; we fear the multitude; for all hold John as

27 a prophet. And they answered Jesus, and said, We know not. He also said unto them, Neither tell I you by what authority I do

28 these things. But what think ye? A man had two sons; and be came to the first, and said, Son, go work to-day in the vineyard.

29 And he answered and said, I will not: but afterward he repented

30 himself, and went. And he came to the second, and said likewise. And he answered and said, I go, sir: and went not.

31 Whether of the twain did the will of his father? They say, 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.

32 For John came unto you in the way of righteousness, and ye believed htm not: jjut the publicans and the harlots believed him: and ye, when ye saw it, did not even repent yourselves afterward, that ye might believe him.

33 Hear another parable: There was a man that was a householder, which planted a vineyard, and set a hedge about it, and digged a winepress in it, and built a tower, and let it out to husbandmen,

34 and went into another country. And when the season of the fruits drew near, he sent his servants to the husbandmen, to

35 receive his fruits. And the husbandmen took his servants, and

36 beat one, and killed another, and stoned another. Again, he sent other servants more than the first: and they did unto them in

37 like manner. But afterward he sent unto them his son, saying,

38 They will reverence my son. But the husbandmen, when they saw the son, said among themselves, This is the heir; come, let

39 us kill him, and take his inheritance. And they took him, and

40 cast him forth out of the vineyard, and killed him. When therefore the lord of the vineyard"shall come, what will he do unto

41 those husbandmen? They say unto him, He will miserably destroy those miserable men, and will let out the vineyard unto other husbandmen, which shall render him the fruits in their sea

42 sons. Jesus saith unto them, Did ye never read in the scriptures,

The stone which the builders rejected,
The same was made the head of the corner:
This was from the Lord,
And it is marvellous in our eyes?

43 Therefore say I unto you, The kingdom of God shall be taken away from you, and shall be given to a nation bringing forth the

44 fruits thereof. And he that falleth on this stone shall be broken to pieces: but on whomsoever it shall fall, it will scatter him as

45 dust. And when the chief priests and the Pharisees heard his

46 parables, they perceived that he spake of them. And when they sought to lay hold on him, they feared the multitudes, because they took him for a prophet.

22 And Jesus answered and spake again in parables unto them,

2 saying, The kingdom of heaven is likened unto a certain king,

3 which made a marriage feast for his son, and sent forth his servants to call them that were bidden to the marriage feast: and

4 they would not come. Again he sent forth other servants, saying, Tell them that are bidden, Behold, I have made ready my dinner: my oxen and my fatlings are killed, and all things are

5 ready: come to the marriage feast. But they made light of it, and went their ways, one to his own farm, another to his mer

6 chandise: and the rest laid hold on his servants, and entreated them

7 shamefully, and killed them. But the king was wroth; and he sent his armies, and destroyed those murderers, and burned their

8 city. Then saith he to his servants, The wedding is ready, but

9 they that were bidden were not worthy. Go ye therefore unto the partings of the highways, and as many as ye shall find, bid to

10 the marriage feast. And those servants went out into the highways, and gathered together all as many as they found, both bad

11 and good: and the wedding was filled with guests. But when the king came in to behold the guests, he saw there a man which

12 had not on a wedding-garment: and he saith unto him, Friend, how earnest thou in hither not having a wedding-garment? And

13 he was speechless. Then the king said to the servants, Bind him hand and foot, and cast him out into the outer darkness; there

14 shall be the weeping and gnashing of teeth. For many are called, but few chosen.

15 Then went the Pharisees, and took counsel how they might

16 ensnare him in his talk. And they send to him their disciples, with the Herodians, saying, Master, we know that thou art true, and teachest the way of God in truth, and carest not for any one:

17 for thou regardest not the person of men. Tell us therefore, What thinkest thou? Is it lawful to give tribute unto Caesar, or

18 not? But Jesus perceived their wickedness, and said, Why tempt

19 ye me, ye hypocrites? Shew me the tribute money. And they

20 brought unto him a penny. And he saith unto them, Whose is

21 this image and superscription? They say unto him, Caesar's. Then saith he unto them, Render therefore unto Caesar the things

22 that are Caesar's; and unto God the things that are God's. And when they heard it, they marvelled, and left him, and went their way.

23 On that day there came to him Sadducees, which say that there

24 is no resurrection: and they asked him, saying, Master, Moses said, If a man die, having no children, his brother shall marry his

23 wife, and raise up seed unto his brother. Now there were with us seven brethren: and the first married and deceased, and having

26 no seed left his wife unto his brother; in like manner the second

27 also, and the third, unto the seventh. And after them all the

28 woman died. In the resurrection therefore whose wife shall she

29 be of the seven? for they all had her. But Jesus answered and said unto them, Ye do err, not knowing the scriptures, nor the

30 power of God. For in the resurrection they neither marry, nor

31 are given in marriage, but are as angels in heaven. But as touching the resurrection of the dead, have ye not read that which was

32 spoken unto you by God, saying, I am the God of Abraham, and the Ged of Isaac, and the God of Jacob? God is not the God of

33 the dead, but of the living. And when the multitudes heard it, they were astonished at his teaching.

34 But the Pharisees, when they heard that he had put the Saddu

35 cecs to silence, gathered themselves together. And one of them, 30 a lawyer, asked him a question, tempting him, Master, which is

37 the great commandment in the law? And he said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with

38 all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the great and first

39 commandment. And a second like unto it is this, Thou shalt

40 love thy neighbour as thyself. On these two commandments hangeth the whole law, and the prophets.

41 Now while the Pharisees were gathered together, Jesus asked

42 them a question, saying, "What think ye of the Christ? whose son

43 is he? They say unto him, TJte eon of David. He saith unto them, How then doth David in the Spirit call him Lord, saying,

44 The Lord said unto my Lord, Sit thou on my right hand,

,_ Till I put thine enemies underneath thy feet?

4„ If David then calleth him Lord, how is he his son? And no one was able to answer him a word, neither durst any man from that day forth ask him any more questions.

23 Then spake Jesus to the multitudes and to his disciples, saying,

2,3The scribes and the Pharisees sit on Moses' seat: all things therefore whatsoever they bid you, these do and observe: but do not

4 ye after their works; for they say, and do not. Yea, they bind heavy burdens and grievous to be borne, and lay them on men's shoulders; but they themselves will not move them with their

5 finger. But all Iheir works they do for to be seen of men: for they make broad their phylacteries, and enlarge the borders of

6 their garments, and love the chief place at feasts, and the chief

7 seats in the synagogues, and the salutations in the marketplaces,

8 and to be called of men. Rabbi. But be not ye called Rabbi: for

9 one is your teacher, and all ye are brethren. And call no man your father on the earth: for one is your Father, which is in

10 heaven. Neither be ye called masters: for one is your master,

11 even the Christ. But he that is greatest among you shall be your

12 servant. And whosoever shall exalt himself shall be humbled; and whosoever shall humble himself shall be exalted.

13 But woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! because ye shut the kingdom of heaven against men: for ye enter not in yourselves, neither suffer ye them that are entering in to enter.

15 "Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye compass sea and land to make one proselyte; and when he is become so, ye make him twofold more a son of hell than yourselves.

10 "Woe unto you, ye blind guides, which say, Whosoever shall swear by the temple, it is nothing; but whosoever shall swear by

17 the gold of the temple, he,is a debtor. Ye fools and blind: for whether is greater, the gold, or the temple that hath sanctified

18 the gold? And,*whosoever shall swear by the altar, it is nothing; but whosoever shall swear by the gift that is upon it, be is a

19 debtor. Ye blind: for whether is greater, the gift, or the altar

20 that sanctifieth the gift? He therefore that sweaveth by the altar,

21 sweareth by it, and by all things thereon. And he that swearetli by the temple, sweareth by it, and by him that dwelleth therein.

22 And he that sweareth by the heaven, sweareth by the throne of God, and by him that sitteth thereon.

23 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye tithe mint and anise and cummin, and have left undone the weightier matters of the law, judgement, and mercy, and faith: but these ye ought to have done, and not to have left the other undone.

24 Ye blind guides, which strain out the gnat, and swallow the camel.

25 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye cleanse the outside of the cup and of the platter, but within they

26 are full from extortion and excess. Thou blind Pharisee, cleanse first the inside of the cup and of the platter, that the outside thereof may become clean also.

27 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye are like unto whited sepulchres, which outwardly appear beautiful, but inwardly are full of dead men's bones, and of all unclean

28 ness. Even so ye also outwardly appear righteous unto men, but inwardly ye are full of hypocrisy and iniquity.

29 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye build the sepulchres of the prophets, and garnish the tombs of the

30 righteous, and say, If we had been in the days of our fathers, we should not have been partakers with them in the blood of the

31 prophets. Wherefore ye witness to yourselves, that ye are sons

32 of them that slew the prophets. Fill ye up then the measure of

33 your fathers. Ye serpents, ye offspring of vipers, how shall ye

34 escape the judgement of hell? Therefore, behold, I send unto you prophets, and wise men, and scribes: some of them shall ye kill and crucify; and some of them shall ye scourge in your

35 synagogues, and persecute from city to city: that upon you may come all the righteous blood shed on the earth, from the blood of Abe! the righteous unto the blood of Zachariah son of Barachiah,

36 whom ye slew between the sanctuary and the altar. Verily I say unto you, All these things shall come upon this generation.

37 0 Jerusalem, Jerusalem, which killeth the prophets, and stoneth them that are sent unto her! how often would I have gathered thy children together, even as a hen gathereth her

38 chickens under her wings, aud ye would not! Behold, your

39 house is left unto you desolate. For I say unto you, Ye shall not see me henceforth, till ye shall say, Blessed w he that cometh in the name of the Lord.

24 And Jesus went out from the temple, and was going on his

way; and his disciples came to him to shew him the buildings of

2 the temple. But he answered and said unto them, See ye not all
