2 manner of buildings I And Jesus said unto him, Seest thou these great buildings? Ihere shall not be left here one stone upon another, which shall not he thrown down.

3 And as he sat on the mount of Olives over against the temple,

4 Peter and James and John and Andrew asked him privately, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shallbe the sign when these

5 things are all about to be accomplished? And Jesus began to say C unto them, Take heed that no man lead you astray. Mary shall

come in my name, saying, I am he; and shall lead many astray.

7 And when ye shall hear of wars aud rumours of wars, be not troubled: these things must needs come to pass; but the end is not yet.

8 For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: there shall be earthquakes in divers places; there shall be famines: these things are the beginning of travail.

9 But take ye heed to yourselves: for they shall deliver you up to councils; and in synagogues shall ye be beaten; and before governors and kings shall ye stand for my sake, for a testimony

10 unto them. And the gospel must first be preached unto all the

11 nations. And when they lead you to judgement, and deliver you up, he not anxious beforehand what ye shall speak: but whatsoever shall be given you in that hour, that speak ye: for it is not

12 ye that speak, but the Holy Ghost. Aud brother shall deliver up brother to death, and the father his child; and children shall rise

13 up against parents, and cause them to be put to death. And ye shall be hated of all men for my name's sake: but he that endureth to the end, the same shall be saved.

14 But when ye see the abomination of desolation standing where he ought not (let him that readeth understand), then let them that

15 are in Judaea flee unto the mountains: and let him that is on the housetop not go down, nor enter in, to take anything out of his

16 house: and let him that is in the field not return hack to take his

17 cloke. But woe unto them that are with child and to them that

18 give suck in those days! And pray ye that it be not in the winter.

19 For those days shall be tribulation, such as there hath not been the like from the beginning of the creation which God created

20 until now, and never shall be. And except the Lord hath shortened the days, no flesh would have been saved: but for ti.e elect's

21 sake, whom he chose, he shortened the days. And then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is the Christ; or, Lo, there;

22 believe it not: for there shall arise false Christs and false prophets, and shall shew signs and wonders, that they may lend astray

23 if possible, the elect. But take ye heed: behold, I have told you all things beforehand.

24 But in those days, after that tribulation, the sun shall be dark

25 ened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall hefalling from heaven, and the powers that are in the heavens sunll

26 be shaken. And then shall they see the Son of man coming in

27 clouds with great power and glory. And then shall he send forth the angels, and shall gather together his elect from the four •winds, from the uttermost part of the earth to the uttermost part of heaven.

28 Now from the fig tree learn her parable: when her branch is now become tender, and putteth forth its leaves, ye know that

29 the summer is nigh; even so ye also, when ye see these things

80 coming to pass, kuow ye that he is nigh, even at the doors. Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass away, until all

81 these things be accomplished. Heaven and earth shall pass away: 33 but my words shall not pass away. But of that day or that hour

knoweth no one, not even the angels in heaven, neither the Son,

33 but the Father. Take ye heed, watch and pray: for ye know not

34 when the time is. It is as when a man, sojourning in another country, having left his house, and given authority to his servants, to each one his work, commanded also the porter to

35 watch. Watch therefore: for ye know not when the lord of the house cometh, whether at even, or at midnight, or at cockerow

36 ing, or in the morning; lest coming suddenly he find you sleeping.

37 And what I say unto you I say unto all, Watch.

14: Now after two days was the feast of the passover and the unleavened bread: and the chief priests and the scribes sought how they might take him with snbtilty, and kill him: for they said,

2 Not during the feast, lest haply there shall be a tumult of the people.

3 And while he was in Bethany in the house of Simon the leper, as he sat at meat, there came a woman having an alabaster cruse of ointment of spikenard very costly; and she brake the cruse,

4 and poured it over his head. But there were some that had indignation among themselves, saying, To what purpose hath this

5 wa-ite of the ointment been made? For this ointment might have been sold for above three hundred pence, and given to the poor.

6 And they murmured against her. But Jesus said, Let her alone;

7 why trouble ye her? she hath wrought a good work on me. For ye have the poor always with you, and whensoever ye will ye can

8 do them goo i: but me }-e have not always. She hath done what she oould: she hath anointed my body aforehand for the burying.

9 And verily I say unto you, Wheresoever the gospel shall be preached throughout the whole world, that also which this woman hath done shall be spoken of for a memorial of her.

10 And Judas Iscariot, he that was one of the twelve, went away

11 unto the chief priests, that he might deliver him unto them. And they, when they heard it, were glad, and promised to give him money. And he sought how he might conveniently deliver him unto them.

12 And on the first day of unleavened bread, when they sacrificed the passover, his disciples say unto him, Where wilt thou that we

13 go and make ready that thou mayest eat the passover? And he seudeth two of his disciples, and saith unto them, Go into the city, and there shall meet you a man bearing a pitcher of water:

14 follow him ', and wheresoever he shall enter in, say to the goodman of the house, The Master saith, Where is my guest-chamber,

15 where I shall eat the passover with my disciples? And he will himself shew you a large upper room furnished and ready: and

16 there make ready for us. And the disciples went forth, and came into the city, and found as he had said unto them: and they made

17 ready the passover.

Hq And when it was evening he cometh with the twelve. And as they sat and were eating, Jesus said, Verily I say unto you, One

19 of you shall betray me, even he that eateth with me. They began

20 to be sorrowful, and to say unto him one by one, Is it I? And he said unto them, It is one of the twelve, he that dippeth with me

21 in the dish. For the Son of man goeth, even as it is written of him: but woe unto that man through whom the Son of man is betrayed! good were it for that man if he had not been born.

22 And as they were eating, he took bread, and when he had blessed, he brake it, and gave to them, and said, Take ye: this is

23 my body. And he took a cup, and when he had given thanks,

24 he gave to them: and they all drank of it. And he said unto them, This is my blood of the covenant, which is shed for many.

25 Verily I say unto you, I will no more drink of the fruit of the vine, until that day when I drink it new in the kingdom of God.

26 And when they had sung a hymn, they went out unto the mount of Olives.

27 And Jesus saith unto them, All ye shall be offended: for it is written, I will smite the shepherd, and the sheep shall be scat

28 tered abroad. Howbeit, after I am raised up, I will go before

29 you into Galilee. But Peter said unto him, Although all shall be

30 offended, yet will not I. And Jesus saith unto him, Verily I say unto thee, that thou to-day, even this night, before the cock crow

31 twice, shalt deny me thrice. But he spake exceeding vehemently, If I must die with thee, I will not deny thee. And in like manner also said they all.

32 And they come unto a place which was named Gethsemane:

33 and he saith unto his disciples, Sit ye here, while I pray. And he taketh with him Peter and James and John, and began to

34 be greatly^ amazed, and sore troubled. And he saith unto them, My soul is exceeding sorrowful even unto death: abide ye here,

35 and watch. And he went forward a little, and fell on the ground, and prayed that, if it were possible, the hour mhjht

36 pass away from him. And he said, Abba, Father, all things are possible unto thee; remove this cup from me: howbeit not

37 what I will, but what thou wilt. And he cometh, and flndeth them sleeping, and saith unto Peter, Simon, sleepest thou?

38 couldest thou not watch one hour? Watch and pray, that ye enter not into temptation: the spirit indeed is willing, but the

39 flesh is weak. And again he went away, and prayed, saying

40 the same words. And again he came, and found them sleeping, for their eyes were very heavy; and they wist not what

41 to answer him. And he comc'.h the third time, and saith unto them, Sleep on now, and take your rest: it is enough; the hour is come; behold, the Son of man is betrayed into the hands

42 of sinners. Arise, let us be going: behold, he that betiaycth me is at hand.

43 And straightway, while he yet spake, cometh Judas, one of the twelve, and with him a multitude with swords and staves,

44 fro;n the chief priests and the scribes and the elders. Now he that betrayed him had given them a token, saying, Whomsoever I shall kiss, that is he; take him, and lead him away safely.

43 And when he was come, straightway he came to him, and saitli,

48 Ribbi; and kissed him. And they laid hands on him, and took 47 him. But a certain one of them that stood by drew his sword,

and smote the servant of the high priest, and struck off bis ear. 43 And Jesus answered and said unto them, Are ye come out, as

49 against a robber, with swords and staves to seize me? I was daily with you in the temple teaching, and ye took me not: but

50 this is done that the scriptures might be fulfilled. And they all left him, and fled.

51 And a certain young man followed with him, having a linen cloth cast about him, over his naked body: and they lay hold on

53 him; but he left the linen cloth, and fled naked.

53 And they led Jesus away to the high priest: and there come together with him sill the chief priests and the elders and the scribes.

54 And Peter had followed him afar off, even within, into the court of the high priest; and he was sitting with the o.flcers, and warm

53 iag himself in the light of the fire. Now the chief priests and the whole council sought witness against Jesus to put him to death;

56 and found it not. For many bare false witness against him, and

57 their witness agreed not together. And there stood up certain.

58 and bare false witness against him, saying, We heard him say, I will destroy this temple that is made with hands, and in three days

59 I will build another made without hands. And not even Bo did

60 their witness agree together. And the high priest stood up in the midst, and asked Jesus, saying, Answerest thou nothing? what is

61 it which these witness against thee? But he held his peace, and answered nothing. Again the high priest asked him, and saith

62 unto him, Art thou the Christ, the Son of the Blessed? A nd Jesus said, I am: and ye shall see the Son of man sitting at the right

63 hand of power, and coming with the clouds of heaven. And the high priest rent his clothes, and saith, What further need have we

64 of witnesses? Ye have heard the blasphemy: what think ye?

65 And they all condemned him to be worthy of death. And some began to spit on him, and to cover his face, and to buffet him, and to say unto him, Prophesy: and the officers received him with blows of their hands. *

66 And as Peter was beneath in the court, there cometh one of the

67 maids of the high priest; and seeing Peter warming himself, she looked upon him, and saith, Thou also wast with the Nazarene,

68 even Jesus. But he denied, saying, I neither know, nor understand what thou sayest: and he went out into the porch; and the

69 cock crew. And the maid saw him, and began again to say to

70 them that stood by, This is one of them. But he again denied it. And after a little while again they that stood by said to Peter, Of

71 a truth thou art one of them; for thou art a Galilaean. But he began to curse, and to swear, I know not this man of whom ye speak.

72 And straightway the second time the cock crew. And Peter called to mind the word, how that Jesus said unto him, Before the cock crow twice, thou shalt deny ins thrice. And when he thought thereon, he wept.

15 And straightway in the morning the chief priests with the elders and scribes, and the whole council, held a consultation, and bound Jesus, and carried him away, and delivered him up to

2 Pilate. And Pilate asked him, Art thou the King of the Jews?

3 And he answering saith unto him, Thou sayest. And the chief

4 priests accused him of many things. And Pilate again asked him, saying, Answerest thou nothing? behold ho* many things th'jy

5 accuse thee of. But Jesus no more answered anything; insomuch that Pilate marvelled.

6 i Now at the feast he used to release unto them one prisoner, whom

7 they asked of him. And there was one called Barabbas, lying bound with them that had made insurrection, men who in the in

8 surrection had committed murder. And the multitude went up

9 and began to ask him to do as he was wont to do unto them. And Pilate answered them, saying, Will ye that I release unto you the

10 King of the Jews? For he perceived that for envy the chief

11 priests had delivered him up. But the chief priests stirred up the

12 multitude, that he should rather release Barabbas unto them. And Pilate again answered and said unto them, What then shall I do

13 unto him whom ye call the King of the Jews? And they cried

14 out again. Crucify him. And Pilate said unto them, Why, what evil hath he done? But they cried out exceedingly, Crucify him.

15 And Pilate, wishing to content the multitude, released unto them Barabbas, and delivered Jesus, when he had scourged him, to be crucified.

16 And the soldiers led him away within the court, which is the

17 Praetorium; and they call together the whole band. And they clothe him with purple, and plaiting a crown of thorns, they put

IS it on him; and they began to salute him, Hail, King of the Jews!

19 And they smote his head with a reed, and did spit upon him, and

20 bowing their knees worshipped him. Aud when they had mocked him, they took off from him the purple, and put on him his garments. And they lead him out to crucify him.

21 And they compel one passing by, Simon of Cyrene, coming from the coufttry, the father of Alexander and Rufus, to go with

22 them, that he might bear his cross. And they bring him unto the place Golgotha, which is, being interpreted, The place of a skull.

23 And they offered him wine mingled with myrrh: but he received

24 it not. And they crucify him, and part his garments atnong> them,
