lo, the heavens were opened unto him, and he saw the Spirit of 17 God descending as a dove, and coming upon him; and lo, a voice

out of the heavens, saying. This is my beloved Son, in whom I

am well pleased. 4 Then was Jesus led up of the Spirit into the wilderness to be

2 tempted of the devil. And when he had fasted forty days and

3 forty nights, he afterward hungered. And the tempter came and said unto him, If thou art the Son of God, command that these

4 stones become bread. But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that pro

5 ceedeth out of the mouth of God. Then the devil taketh him into

6 the holy city; and he set him on the pinnacle of the temple, and saith unto him, If thou art the Son of God, cast thys'elf down: for it is written,

He shall give his angels charge concerning thee:
And on their hands they shall bear thee up,
Lest haply thou dash thy foot against a stone.

7 Jesus said unto him, Again it is written, Thou shalt not tempt the

8 Lord thy God. Again, the devil taketh him unto an exceeding high mountain, and sheweth him all the kingdoms of the world,

9 and the glory of them; and he said unto him, All these things

10 will I give thee, if thou wilt fall down and worship me. Then saith Jesus unto him. Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written. Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou

11 serve. Then the devil leaveth him; and behold, angels came and ministered unto him.

12 Now when he heard that John was delivered up, he withdrew

13 into Galilee; and leaving Nazareth, he came and dwelt in Capernaum, which is by the sea, in the borders of Zebulun and

14 Naphtali: that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Isaiah the prophet, saying.

15 The land, of Zebulun and the land of Naphtali, Toward the sea, beyond Jordan,

Galilee of the Gentiles,

16 The people which sat in darkness
Saw a great light,

And tc them which sat in the region and shadow of death,
To them did light spring up.

17 From that time began Jesus to preach, and to say, Repent ye; for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.

18 And walking by the sea of Galilee, he saw two brethren, Simon who is called Peter, and Andrew his brother, casting a net

19 into the sea; for they were fishers. And he saith unto them,

20 Come ye after me, anil I will make you fishers of men. And they

21 straightway left the nets, and followed him. And going on from thence he saw other two brethren, James the son of Zebedee, and John his brother, in the boat with Zebedee their father,

22 mending their nets; and he called them. And they straightway left the boat and their father, and followed him.

23 And Jesus went about in all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing all manner of disease and all manner of sickness among the

24 people. And the report of him went forth into all Syria: and they brought unto him all that were sick, holdcn with divers diseases and torments, possessed with devils, nud epileptic, and

25 palsied; and he healed them. And there followed him great multitudes from Galilee and Decapolis and Jerusalem and Judaea and from beyond Jordan.

5 And seeing the multitudes, he went up into the mountain: and

2 when he had sat down, his disciples came unto him: and he opened his mouth and taught them, saying,

3 Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

4 Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted.

5 Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth.

6 Blessed are they that hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled.

7 Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy.

8 Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God.

9 Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called sons of God.

10 Blessed are they that have been persecuted for righteousness'

11 sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Blessed are ye when men shall reproach you, and persecute you, and say all manner

12 of evil against you falsely, for my sake. Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you.

13 Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost its savout wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing,

14 but to be cast out and trodden under foot of men. Ye are the

15 light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hid. Neither do men light a lamp, and put it under the bushel, but on the

16 stand; and it shiiicth unto all that are in the house. Even so let your light shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.

17 Think not that I came to destroy the law or the prophets: I

18 came not to destroy, but to fulfil. For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass away, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass away from the law, till all things be accomplished.

19 Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, shall be called least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, he shall

20 be called great in the kingdom of heaven. For I say unto you, that except your righteousness shall exceed the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, ye shall in no wise enter into the kingdom of heaven.

21 Ye have heard that it was said to them of old time. Thou shalt not kill; and whosoever shall kill shall be in danger of the judge

22 ment: but I say unto you, that every one who is angry with his brother shall be in danger of the judgement; and whosoever shall say to his brother, Raca, shall be in danger of the council; and whosoever shall say, Thou fool, shall be in danger of the hell of

23 fire. If therefore thou art offering !hy gift at the altar, and there

24 rememberest that thy brother hath aught against thee, leave there thy gift before the altar, and go thy way, first be reconciled to

25 thy brother, and then come and offer thy gift. Agree with thine adversary quickly,whiles thou art with him in the way; lest haply the adversary deliver thee to the judge, and the judge deliver thee

26 to the officer, and thou be cast into prison. Verily, I say unto thee. Thou shalt by no means come out thence, till thou have paid the last farthing.

27 Ye have heard that it was said, Thou shalt not commit adul

28 tery: but I say unto you, that every one that looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his

29 heart. And if thy right eye causeth thee to stumble, pluck it out, and cast it from thee: for it is profitable for thee that one of thy members should perish, and not thy whole body be cast into hell.

30 And if thy right h;ind causeth thee to stumble, cut it off, and cast it from thee: for it is profitable for thee that one of thy

31 members should perish, and not thy whole body go into hell. It was said also, Whosoever shall put away his wife, let him give

32 her a writing of divorcement: but I say unto you, that every one that putteth away his wife, saving for the cause of fornication, maketh her an adulteress: and whosoever shall marry her when she is put away committeth adultery.

33 Again, ye have heard that it was said to them of old time. Thou shalt not forswear thyself, but shalt perform unto the Lord thine

34 oaths: but I say unto you, Swear not at all; neither by the hea

35 ven, for it is the throne of God; nor by the earth, for it is the footstool of his feet; nor by Jerusalem, for it is the city of the

36 great King. Neither shalt thou swear by thy head, for thou canst

37 not make one hair white or black. But let your speech be, Yea, yea; Nay, nay: and whatsoever is more than these is of the evil one.

38 Ye have heard that it was said, An eye for an eye, and a tooth

39 for a tooth: but I say unto you, Resist not him that is evil: but whosoever smiteth thee on Ihy right cheek, turn to him the other

40 also. And if any man would go to law with thee, and take away

41 thy coat, let him have thy cloke also. And whosoever shall com

42 pel thee to go one mile, go with him twain. Give to him that asketh thee, and from him that would borrow of thee turn not thou away.

43 Ye have heard that it was said, Thou shalt love thy neighbour,

44 and hate thine enemy: but I say unto you, Love your enemies,

45 and pray for them that persecute you; that ye maybe sons of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sendeth rain on the just and the unjust. 48 For if ye love them that love you, what reward have ye? do not

47 even the publicans the same? And if ye salute your brethren only, what do ye more than others? do not even the Gentiles the

48 same? Ye therefore shall be perfect, as your heavenly Father is perfect.

6 Take heed that ye do not your righteousness before men, to be seen of them: else ye have no reward with your Father which is in heaven.

2 When therefore thou doest alms, sound not a trumpet before thee, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, that they may have glory of men. Verily I say unto you, They have

3 received their reward. But when thou doest alms, let not thy

4 left hand know what thy right hand doeth: that thine alms may be in secret: and thy Father which seeth in secret shall recompense thee.'

5 And when ye pray, ye shall not be as the hypocrites: for they love to stand and pray in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen of men. Verily I say unto you,

6 They have received their reward. But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thine inner chamber, and having shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret, and thy Father which seeth in secret

7 shall recompense thee. And in praying use not vain repetitions, as the Gentiles do: for they think that they shall be heard for their

8 much speaking. Be not therefore like unto them: for your Father

9 knoweth what things ye have need of, before ye ask him. After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven,

10 Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done,

11 as in heaven, so on earth. Give U3 this day our daily bread.

12 And forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors.

13 And bring us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one.

14 For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will

15 also forgive you. But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.

16 Moreover when ye fast, be not, as the hypocrites, of a sad countenance: for they disfigure their faces, that they may be seen of men to fast. Verily I say unto you, They have received their

17 reward. But thou, when thou fastest, anoint thy head, and

18 wash thy face; that thou be not seen of men to fast, but of thy Father which is in secret: and thy Father, which seeth in secret, shall recompense thee.

19 Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon the earth, where moth and rust doth consume, and where thieves break through and

20 steal: but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth consume, and where thieves do not break

21 through nor steal: for where thy treasure is, there will thy heart

22 be also. The lamp of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye

23 be single, thy whole body shall be full of light. But if thine eye be evil, thy whole body shall be full of darkness. If therefore the

24 light that is in thee be darkness, how great is the darkness 1 No man can serve two masters:- for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to one, and despise the other.

25 Ye cannot serve God and mammon. Therefore I say unto you, Be not anxious for your.life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not (he

26 life more than the food, and the body than the raiment? Behold the birds of the heaven, that they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; and Jout heavenly Father feedeth them.

27 Are not ye of much more .varlue than they? And which of you by

28 being anxious can add one:e.ulljt unto his stature? And why are ye anxious concerning raiment? Consider the lilies of the field,

29 how they grow; they toil not,: neither do they spin: yet I say unto you, that even Solomon !in all his glory was'not arrayed like one

30 of these. But if God doth so clothe the grass of the field, which to-day is, and to-morrow is cast into the oven, shall Ite not much

31 more clothe you, O ye of little faith? Be not therefore anxious, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Where

33 withal shall we be clothed? For after all these things do the Gentiles seek; for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need

33 of all these things. But seek ye first his kingdom, and his right

34 eousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. Be not therefore anxious for the morrow: for the morrow will be anxious for itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.

7 Judge not, that ye be not judged. For with what judgement ye judge, ye shall be judged;: and with what measure ye mete, it

3 shall be measured unto you. And why beholdest thou the mote . that is in thy brother's eye, hut considerest not the beam that is

4 in thine own eye? Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me cast out the mote out of thine eye; and lo, the beam is in thine

5 own eye? Thou hypocrite, cast out first the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother's eye.

6 Give not that which is holy unto the dogs, neither cast your pearls before the swine, lest haply they trample,them under their feet, and turn and rend you. ,;'

7 Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock,

8 and it shall be opened unto you: for every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knpcketh it

9 shall be opened. Or what man is there of you, who, if his son

10 shall ask him for a loaf, will give him a stone; or if he shall ask

11 -for a fish.will give him a serpent? If ye then, being evil, know how to giye good gifts unto your children, how much more shall your Father which is in heaven give good things to them that ask

12 him?: All things therefore whatsoever ye would that men should do unto you, even so do ye also unto them: for this is the law and the prophets. ,.-<; . .

13 Enter ye in by the narrow gate: for/wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many bo they that
