scribes ask him, Why walk not thy disciples according to the tradition of the elders, but eat their bread with defiled hands?

6 And he said unto them, Well did Isaiah prophesy of you hypocrites, as it is written,

This people honoureth me with their lips,
But their heart is far from me.

7 But in vain do they worship me,

Teaching as their doctrines the precepts of men.

8 Te leave the commandment of God, and hold fast the tradition of

9 men. And he said unto them, Full well do ye reject the com

10 mandment of God, that ye may keep your tradition. For Moses said, Honour thy father and thy mother; and, He that speaketh

11 evil of father or mother, let him die the death: but ye say, If a man shall say to his father or his mother, That wherewith thou mightest have been profited by me is Corban, that is to say,

12 Given to God; ye no longer suffer him to do aught for his father

13 or his mother; making void the word of God by your tradition.

14 which ye have delivered: and many such like things ye do. And he called to him the multitude again, and said unto them, Hear

15 me all of you. and understand: there is nothing from without the man, that going into him can defile him: but the things which

17 proceed out of the man are those that defile the man. And when he was entered into the house from the multitude, his disciples

18 asked of him the parable. And he saith unto them, Are ye so without understanding also? Perceive ye not, that whatsoever

19 from without goeth into the man, it cannot defile him; because it

foeth not into his heart, but into hi3 belly, and goeth out into the raught? This he said, making all meats clean. And he said, That which proceedeth out of the man, that defileth the man. 21 For from within, out of the heart of men, evil thoughts proceed, 23 fornications, thefts, murders, adulteries, covetings, wickednesses,

23 deceit, lasciviousness, an evil eye, railing, pride, foolishness: all these evil things proceed from within, and defile the man.

24 And from thence he arose, and went away into the borders of Tyre and Sidon. And he entered into a house, and would have

25 no man know it: and he could not be hid. But straightway a woman, whose little daughter had an unclean spirit, having

26 heard of him, came and fell down at his feet. Now the woman was a Greek, a Syrophoenician by race. And she besought him

27 that he would cast forth the devil out of her daughter. And he said unto her, Let the children first be filled: for it is not meet

28 to take the children's bread and cast it to the dogs. But she answered and saith unto him, Yea, Lord: even the dogs under the

29 table eat of the children's crumbs. And he said unto her, Fur this saying go thy way; the devil is gone out of thy daughter.

SO And she went away unto her house, and found the child laid

upon the bed, and the devil gone out. 81 And again he went out from the borders of Tyre, and came

through Bidon unto the sea of Galilee, through the midst of the

32 borders of Decapolis. And they bring unto him one that was deaf, and had an impediment in his speech; and they beseech

33 him to lay his hand upon him. And he took him aside from the multitude privately, and put his fingers into his ears, and he spat,

34 and touched his tongue; and looking up to heaven, he sighed,

35 and saith unto him, Ephphatha, that is, Be opened. And his ears were opened, and the bond of his tongue was loosed, and he

36 spake plain. And he charged them that they should tell no man: but the more he charged them, so much the more a great deal

37 they published it. And they were beyond measure astonished, saying, He hath done all things well: he maketh even the deaf to hear, and the dumb to speak.

8 In those days, when there was again a great multitude, and they had nothing to eat, he called unto him his disciples, and

2 saith unto them, I have compassion on the multitude, because they continue with me now three days, and have nothing to eat:

3 and if I send them away fasting to their home, they will faint in

4 the way; and some of them are come from far. And his disciples answered him, Whence shall one be able to fill these men with

5 bread here in a desert place? And he asked them, How many

6 loaves have ye? And they said, Seven. And he commandeth the multitude to sit down on the ground: and he took the seven loaves, and having given thanks, he brake, and gave to his disciples, to set before them; and they set them before the multi

7 tuda. And they had a few small fishes: and having blessed

8 them, he commanded to set these also before them. And they did eat, and were filled: and they took up, of broken pieces that

9 remained over, seven baskets. And they were about four thou

10 sand: and he sent them away. And straightway he entered into the boat with his disciples, and came into the parts of Dalmanutha.

11 And the Pharisees came forth, and began to question with him,

12 seeking of him a sign from heaven, tempting him. And he sighed deeply in his spirit, and saith, Why doth this generation, seek a sign? verily I say unto you, There shall no sign be given

13 unto this generation. And he left them, and again entering into ike boat departed to the other side.

14 And they forgot to take bread; and they had not in the boat

15 with them more than one loaf. And he charged them, saying, Take heed, beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and the leaven

16 of Herod. And they reasoned one with another, saying, We have

17 no bread. And Jesus perceiving it saith unto them, Why reason ye. because ye have no bread? do ye not yet perceive, neither

18 understand? have ye your heart hardened? Having eyes, see ye not? and having ears, hear ye not? and do ye not remem

19 ber? When I brake the five loaves among the five thousand, how many baskets full of broken pieces took ye up? They

20 say unto him, Twelve. And when the seven among the four thousand, how many basketfuls of broken pieces took ye up? 21 And they say unto him, Seven. And he said unto them, Do ye

not yet understand? 23 And they come unto Bethsaida. And they hring to him a 23 blind man, and beseech him to touch him. And he took hold of

the blind man by the hand, and brought him out of the village;

and when he had spit on his eyes, and laid his hands upon him, 21 he asked him, Seest thou aught? And he looked up, and said, I 25 see men; for I behold thent as trees, walking. Then again he

Inid.hU hands upon his eyes; and he looked stedfastly, and was 20 restored, and saw all things clearly. And he sent him away to

his home, saying, Do not even enter into the village.

27 And Jesus went forth, and his disciples, into the villages of Caesarea Philippi: and in the way he asked his disciples, saying

28 unto them, Who do men say that I am? And they told him, "saying, John the Baptist: and others, Elijah; but others, One of the

29 prophets. And he asked them, But who say ye that I am? Peter SO answereth and saith unto him, Thou art the Christ. And he

31 charged them that they should tell no man of him. And be began to teach them, that the Son of man must suffer many things, and be rejected by the elders, and the chief priests, and the scribes,

32 and be killed, and after three days rise again. And he spake the saying openly. And Peter took him, and began to rebuke him.

S3 But he turmng about, and seeing his disciples, rebuked Peter, and saith, Get thee behind me, Satan: for thou mindest not the

34 things of God, but the things of men. And he called unto him the multitude with his disciples, and said unto them, If any man would come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross,

35 and follow me. For whosoever would save his life shall lose it; and whosoever shall lose his life for my sake and the gospel's shall

30 s:we it. For what doth it profit a man, to gain the whole world,

37 and forfeit his life? For what should a man give in exchange for

38 his life? For whosoever shall be ashamed of me and of my words in this adulterous and sinful generation, the Son of man also shall be ashamed of him, when he cometh in the glory of his Father

0 with the holy angels. And he said unto them, Verily I say unto you. There be some here of them that stand by, which shall in no wise taste of death, till they see the kingdom of God come with power.

2 And after six days Jesus taketh with him Peter, and James, and John, and bringeth them up into a high mountain apart by

8 themselves: and he was transfigured before them: and his garments became glistering, exceeding white; so as no fuller on earth

4 can whiten them. And there appeared unto them Elijah with,

5 Moses: and they were talking with Jesus. And Peter answereth and saith to Jesus, Rabbi, it is good for us to be here: and let us make three tabernacles; one for thee, and one for Moses, and one

6 for Elijah. For be wist not what to answer; for they became

7 sore afraid. And there came a cloud overshadowing them: and there came a voice out of the cloud. This is my beloved Son: hear

8 ye him. And suddenly looking round about, they saw no one any more, save Jesus only with themselves.

9 And as they were coming down from the mountain, he charged them that they should tell no man what things they had seen, save when the Son of man should have risen again from the deud.

10 And they kept the saying, questioning among themselves what

11 the rising again from the dead should mean. And they asked

12 him, saying, The scribes say that Elijah must first come. An'd he said unto them, Elijah indeed cometh first, and restoreth all things: and how is it written of the Son of man, that he should

13 suffer many things and be set at nought? But I say unto you, that Elijah is come, and they have also done unto him whatsoever they listed, even as it is written of him.

14 And when they came to the disciples, they saw a great multi

15 tude about them, and scribes questioning with them. And straightway all the multitude, when they 6aw him, were greatly

16 amazed, and runniug to him saluted him. And he asked them,

17 What question ye with them? And one of the multitude answered him, Master, 1 brought unto thee my son, which hath a dumb

18 spirit: and wheresoever it taketh him, it dasheth him down: and hefoameth, and grindeth his teeth, and pineth away: and I spake to thy disciples that they should cast it out; and they were not

19 able. And he answereth them and saith, O faithless generation, how long shall I be with you? how long shall I bear with you?

20 bring him unto me. Aud they brought him unto him: and when he saw him, straightway the spirit tare him grievously; and he

21 fell on the ground, and wallowed foaming. And. he asked his father, How long time is it since this hath come unto him? And

22 he said. From a child. And oft-times it hath cast him both into the fire and into the waters, to destroy him. but if thou canst do

23 anything, have compassion on us, and help us. And Jesus said unto him, If thou canstl All things are possible to him that

24 believeth. Straightway the father of the child cried out, and

25 said, I believe; help thou mine unbelief. And when Jesus saw that a multitude came running together, he rebuked the unclean spirit, saying unto him, Thou dumb and deaf spirit, I command

26 thee, come out of him, and enter no more into him. And having cried out, and torn him much, he came out: and the child became

27 as one dead; insomuch that the more part said, He is dead. But Jesus took him by the hand, and raised him up; and he arose.

28 And when he was come into the house, his disciples asked him

29 privately, saying, We could not cast it out. And he said unto them. This kind can come out by nothing, save by prayer.

30 And they went forth from thence, and passed through Galilee;

31 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 up into the hands of men, and they shall kill him; and when he is

32 killed, after three days he shall rise again. But they understood not the saying, and were afraid to ask him.

33 And they came to Capernaum: and when he was in the house

34 ho asked them, What were ye reasoning in the way? But they held their peace: for they had disputed one with another in the

35 way, who wot the greatest. And he sat down, and called the twelve; and he saith unto them, If any man would be first, he

36 shall be last of all, and minister of all. And he took a little child, . and set him in the midst of them: and taking him in his arms,

37 he said unto them, Whosoever shall receive one of such little children in my name, receiveth me: and whosoever receiveth me, receiveth not me, but him that sent me.

38 John said unto him, Master, we saw one casting out devils in

39 thy name: and we forbade him, because he followed not us. But Jesus said, Forbid him not: for there is no man shall do a mighty

40 work in my name, and be able quickly to speak evil of me. For

41 he that is not against us is for us. For whosoever shall give you a cup of water to drink, because ye are Christ's, verily I say unto

43 you, he shall in no wise lose his reward. And whosoever shall cause one of these little ones that believe on me to stumble, it were better for him if a great millstone were hanged about his neck,

43 and he were cast into the sea. And if tl>y hand cause thee to stumble, cut it off: it is good for thee to enter into life maimed, rather than having thy two hands to go into hell, into the un

45 quenchable fire. And if thy foot cause thee to stumble, cut it off: it is good for thee to enter into life halt, rather than having thy

47 two feet to be cast into hell. And if thine eye cause thee to stumble, cast it out: it is good for thee to enter into the kingdom of

48 God with one eye, rather than having two eyes to be cast into

49 hell; where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.

50 For every one shall be salted with fire. Sait is good: but if the salt have lost its saltness, wherewith will ye seasou it? Have salt in yourselves, and be at peace one with another.

lO And he arose from thence, and cometh into the borders of Judaea and beyond Jordan: and multitudes come together unto him 2 again; and, as he was wont, he taught them again. And there came unto him Pharisees, and asked him, Is it lawful for a man 8 to put away hit wife? tempting him. And he answered and said

4 unto them, What did Moses command you? And they said, Moses suffered to write a bill of divorcement, and to put her away.

5 But Jesus said unto them, For your hardness of heart he wrote

6 you this commandment. But from the beginning of the creation,

7 Male and female made he them. For this cause shall a man leave

8 his father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife; and the twain shall become one flesh: so that they are no more twain, but one

9 flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let not man

10 put asunder. And in the house the disciples asked him again of

11 this matter. And he saith unto them, Whosoever shall put away

12 his wife, and marry another, committethadultery'againsther: and if she herself shall put away her husband, and marry another, she committeth adultery.
