18 the word, straightway they stumble. And others are they that are sown among the thorns; these are they that have heard the

19 word, and the cares of the world, and the deceitfulness of riches, aad the lusts of other things entering in, choke the word, and it

20 becometh unfruitful. And those are they that were sown upon the good ground; such as hear the word, and accept it, and bear fruit, thirtyfold, and sixtyfold, and a hundredfold.

21 And he caid unto them, Is the lamp brought to be put under the'bushel, or under the bed, and not to be put on the stand?

22 For there is nothing hid, save that it should be manifested; neither

23 was anything made secret, but that it should come to light. If

24 any man hath ears to hear, let him hear. And he said unto them, Take heed what ye hear: with what measure ye mete it shall be

25 measured unto you: and more shall be given unto you. For he that hath, to him shall be given: and he that hath not, from him shall be taken away even that which he hath.

26 And he said, So is the kingdom of God, as if a man should cast

27 seed upon the earth; and should sleep and rise night and day, and the seed should spring up and grow, he knoweth not how.

29 The earth beareth fruit of herself; first the blade, then the ear,

29 then the full corn in the ear. But when the fruit is ripe, straightway he putteth forth the sickle, because the harvest is come.

30 And he said, How shall we liken the kingdom of God? or in

31 what parable shall we set it forth? It is like a grain of mustard seed, which, when it is sown upon the earth, though it be less

32 than all the seeds that are upon the earth, yet when it is sown, groweth up, and becometh greater than all the herbs, and putteth out great branches; so that the birds of the heaven can lodge under the shadow thereof.

83 And with many such parables spake he the word unto them, as

34 they were able to hear it: and without a parable spake he not unto them: but privately to his own disciples he expounded all things.

35 . And on that day, when even was come, he saith unto them, 88 Let us go over unto the other side. And leaving the multitude,

they take him with them, even as he was, in the boat. And

37 other boats were with him. And there ariseth a great storm of wind, and the waves beat into the boat, insomuch that the boat

38 was now filling. And he himself was in the stern, asleep on the cushion: and they awake him, and say unto him, Master, carest

39 thou not that we perish? And he awoke, and rebuked the wind, and said unto the sea, Peace, be still. And the wind ceased, and

40 there was a great calm. And he said unto them, Why are ye i\ fearful? have ye not yet faith? And they feared exceedingly,

and said one to another, Who then is this, that even the wind and the sea obey him? 5 And they came to the other side of the sea, into the country of 2 the Gerasenes. And when he was come out of the boat, straightway there met him out of the tombs a man with an unclean spirit, 3 who had his dwelling in the tombs: and no man could any more

4 bind him, no, not with a chain; because that he had been often bound with fetters and chains, and the chains had been rent asunder by him, and the fetters broken in pieces: and no man had

5 strength to tame him. And always, night and day, in the tombs and in the mountains, he was crying out, and cutting himself

6 with stones. And when he saw Jesus from afar, he ran and

7 worshipped him; and crying out with a loud voice, he saith. What have I to do with thee, Jesus, thou Son of the Most High God?

8 I adjure thee by God, torment me not. For he said unto him.

9 Come forth, thou unclean spirit, out of the man. And he asked him, What is thy name? And he saith unto him, My name is

10 Legion; for we are many. And he besought him much that he

11 would not send them away out of the country. Now there was l'J there on the mountain side a great herd of swine feeding. And

they besought him, saying, Send us into the swine, that we may

13 enter into them. And he gave them leave. And the unclean spirits came out, and entered into the swine: and the herd rushed down the steep into the sea, in number about two thousand; and

14 they were choked in the sea. And they that fed them fled, and told it in the city, and in the country. And they came to see

15 what it was that had come to pass. And they come to Jesus, and behold him that was possessed with devils sitting, clothed and in his right mind, even him that had the legion: and they were afraid.

16 And they that saw it declared unto them how it befell him that

17 was possessed with devils, and concerning the swine. And

18 they began to beseech him to depart from their borders. And as he was entering into the boat, he that had been possessed with

19 devils besought him that he might be with him. And he suffered him not, but saith unto him, Go to thy house unto thy friends, and tell them how great things the Lord hath done for thee, and

20 how he had mercy on thee. And he went his way, and began to publish in Decapoiis how great things Jesus had "done for him: and all men did marvel.

21 And when Jesus had crossed over again in the boat unto the other side, a great multitude was gathered unto him: and he was

22 by the sea. And there cometh one of the rulers of the synagogue,

23 J alms by name; and seeing him, he falleth at his feet, and beseecheth him much, saying, My little daughter is at the point of death: I pray thee, that thou come and lay thy hands on her, that

24 she may be made whole, and live. And he went with him; and a great multitude followed him, and they thronged him.

25 And a woman, which had an issue of blood twelve years, and

26 had suffered many things of many physicians, and had spent all that she had, and was nothing bettered, but rather grew worse,

27 having heard the things concerning Jesus, came in the crowd

28 behind, and touched his garment. For she said, If I touch but

29 his garments, I shall be made whole. And straightway the fountain of her blood was dried up; and she felt in her body that she

30 was healed of her plague. And straightway Jesus, perceiving in himself that the power proceeding from him had gone forth, turned him about in the crowd, and said, Who touched my garments?

81 And his disciples said unto him, Thou seest the multitude throng

32 ing thee, and sayest thou, Who touched me? And he looked

33 round about to see her that had done this thing. But the woman fearing and trembling, knowing what had been done to her, came

34 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.

33 While he yet spake, they come from the ruler of the synagogue's house, saying, Thy daughter is dead: why troublest thou

35 the Master any further? But Jesus, not heeding the word spoken, saith unto the ruler of the synagogue, Pear not, only believe.

37 And he suffered no man to follow with him, save Peter, and 33 James, and Jolin the brother of James. And they come to

the house of the ruler of the synagogue; and he beholdeth a 89 tumult, and many weeping and wailing greatly. And when he

was entered in, he saith unto them, Why make ye a tumult, and

40 weep? the child is not dead, but sleepcth. And they laughed him to scorn. But he, having put them all forth, taketh the father of the child and her mother and them that were with him,

41 and goeth in where the child was. And taking the child by the hand, he saith unto her, Talithacumi; which is, being interpreted,

43 Damsel, I say unto thee, Arise. And straightway the damsel rose up, and walked; for she was twelve years old. And they

43 were amazed straightway with a great amazement. And he charged them much that no man should know this: and he commanded that something should be given her to eat.

6 And he went out from thence; and he cometh into his own

% country; and his disciples follow him. And when the sabbath

was come, he began to teach in the synagogue: and many hearing

him were astonished, saying. Whence hath this man these things?

and. What is the wisdom that is given unto this man, and what

3 mean such mighty works wrought by his hands? Is not this the carpenter, the son of Mary, and brother of James, and Joses, and Judas, and Simon? and are not his sisters here with us? And

4 they were offended in him. And Jesus said unto them, A prophet is not without honour, save in his own country, and among his

5 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,

6 and healed them. And he marvelled because of their unbelief.

And he went round about the villages teaching.

7 And he called unto him the twelve, and began to send them forth by two and two; and he gave them authority over the unclean

8 spirits; and he charged them that they should take nothing for (heir journey, save a staff only; no bread, no wallet, no money in

9 their purse; but to go shod with sandals: and, said he, put not on 10 two coats. And he said unto them, Wheresoever ye enter into a

11 house, there abide till ye depart thence. And whatsoever place shall not receive you, and they hear you not, as ye go forth thence, shake off the dust that is under your feet for a testimony

12 unto them. And they went out, and preached that men should

13 repent. And they cast out many devils, and anointed with oil many that were sick, and healed them.

14 And king Herod heard thereof; for his name had become known: and he said, John the Baptist is risen from the dead, and

15 therefore do these powers work in him. But others said, It is Elijah. And others said, It w a prophet, even as one of the

16 prophets. But Herod, when he heard thereof, said, John, whom I

17 beheaded, he is risen. For Herod himself had sent forth and laid hold upon John, and bound him in prison for the sake of Herodias,

18 his brother Philip's wife: for he had married her. For John said unto Herod, It is not lawful for thee to have thy brother's wife.

19 And Herodias set herself against him, and desired to kill him; and

20 she could not; for Herod feared John, knowing that he was a righteous man and a holy, and kept him safe. And when he heard him, he was much perplexed; and he heard him gladly.

21 And when a convenient day was come, that Herod on his birthday made a supper to his lords, and the high captains, and the

22 chief men of Galilee; and when the daughter of Herodias herself came in and danced, she pleased Herod and them that sat at meat with him; and the king said unto the damsel, Ask of me whatso

23 ever 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

24 of my kingdom. And she went out, and said unto her mother, What shall I ask? And she said, The head of John the Baptist.

25 And she came in straightway with haste unto the king, and ssked, saying, I will that thou forthwith give me in a charger the head

26 of John the Baptist. And the king was exceeding sorry; but for the sake of his oaths, and of them that sat at meat, he would not

27 reject her. And straightway the king sent forth a soldier of his guard, and commanded to bring his head: and he went and

28 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.

29 And when his disciples heard thereof, they came and took up his corpse, and laid it in a tomb.

30 And the apostles gather themselves together unto Jesus; and they told him all things, whatsoever they had done, and whatsoever

31 they had taught. And he saith unto them, Come ye yourselves apart into a ctesert place, and rest a while. For there were manycoming and going, and they had no leisure so much as to eat.

32 And they went away in the boat to a desert place apart. And the

33 people saw them going, and many knew them, and they ran there to

34 gether on foot from all the cities, and outwent them. And he came forth and saw a great multitude, and he had compassion on them, because they were as sheep not having a shepherd: and he began to

35 teach them many things. And when the day was now far spent,

his disciples came unto him, and said, The place is desert, and

36 the day is now far spent: send them away, that they may go into the country and villages round about, and buy themselves some

37 what to eat. But he answered and said unto them, Give ye them to eat. And they say unto him, Shall we go and buy two hundred

38 pennyworth of bread, and give them to eat? And he saith unto them, How many loaves have ye? go and see. And when they

39 knew, they say, Five, and two fishes. And he commanded them

40 that all should, sit down by companies upon the green grass. And

41 they sat down in ranks, by hundreds, and by fifties. And he took the five loaves and the two fishes, and looking up to heaven, he blessed, and brake the loaves; and he gave to the disciples to set before them; and the two fishes divided he among them all.

42 And they did all eat, and were filled. And they took up broken

43 pieces, twelve basketfuls, and also of the fishes. And they that

44 ate the loaves were five thousand men.

45 And straightway he constrained his disciples to enter into the boat, and to go before Mm unto the other side to Bethsaida, while

46 he himself sendeth the multitude away. And after he had taken

47 leave of them, he departed into the mountain to pray. And when even was come, the boat was in the midst of the sea, and he alone

48 on the land. And seeing them distressed in rowing, for the wind was contrary unto them, about the fourth watch of the night he cometh unto them, walking on the sea; and he would have passed

49 by them: but they, when they saw him walking on the sea, supposed that it was an apparition, and cried out: for they all saw

50 him, and were troubled. But he straightway spake with them, and saith unto them, Be of good cheer: it is I; be npt afraid.

51 And he went up unto them into the boat; and the wind ceased:

52 and they were sore amazed in themselves; for they understood not concerning the loaves, but their heart was hardened.

53 And when they had crossed over, they came to the land unto

54 Gennesaret, and moored to the shore. And when they were come

55 out of the boat, straightway the people knew him, and ran round about that whole region, and began to carry about on their beds

56 those that were sick, where they heard he was. And wheresoever he entered, into villages, or into cities, or into the country, they laid the sick in the marketplaces, 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.

7 And there are gathered together unto him the Pharisees, and

2 certain of the scribes, which had come from Jerusalem, and had seen that some of his disciples ate their bread with defiled,

3 that is, unwashen, hands. For the Pharisees, and all the Jews, except they wash their hands diligently, eat not, holding the

4 tradition of the elders: and when they come from the marketplace, except they wash themselves, they eat not: and many other things there be, which they have received to hold, washings of

5 cups, and pots, and brascn vessels. And the Pharisees and the
