25 casting lots upon them, what each should take. And it was the

26 third hour, and they crucified him. And the superscription of

27 his accusation was written over, The King Of The Jews. And with him they crucify two robbers; one on his right hand,

29 and one on his left. And they that passed by railed on him, wagging their heads, and saying, Ha! thou that destroyest the

30 temple, and buildest it in three days, save thyself, and come down

31 from the cross. In like manner also the chief priests mocking him among themselves with the scribes said, He saved others;

32 himself he cannot save. Let the Christ, the King of Israel, now come down from the cross, that we may see and believe. And they that were crucified with him reproached him.

33 And when the sixth hour was come, there was darkness over

34 the whole land until the ninth hour. And at the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, Eloi, Eloi, lama sabachthani? which is, being interpreted, My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken

35 me? And some of them that stood by, when they heard it, said,

36 Behold he ealleth Elijah. And one ran, and filling a sponge full of vinegar, put it on a reed, and gave him to drink, saying, Let

37 be; let us see whether Elijah cometh to take him down. And

38 Jesus uttered a loud voice, and gave up the ghost. And the veil

39 of the temple was rent in twain from the top to the bottom. And when the centurion, which stood by over against him, saw that he so gave up the ghost, he said, Truly this man was the Son of

40 God. And there were also women beholding from afar: among whom were both Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of James

41 the less and of Joses, and Salome; who, when he was in Galilee, followed him, and ministered unto him; and many other women which came up with him unto Jerusalem.

42 And when even was now come, because it was the Preparation,

43 that is, the day before the sabbath, there came Joseph of Arimathaea, a councillor of honourable estate, who also himself was looking for the kingdom of God; and he boldly went in unto

44 Pilate, and asked for the body of Jesus. And Pilate marvelled if he were already dead: and calling unto him the centurion, he

45 asked him whether he had been any while dead. And when he

46 learned it of the centurion, he granted the corpse to Joseph. And he bought a linen cloth, and taking him down, wound him in the linen cloth, and laid him hi a tomb which had been hewn out of

47 a rock; and he rolled a stone against the door of the tomb. And Mary Magdalene and Mary the mother of Joses beheld where he was laid.

16 And when the sabbath was past, Mary Magdalene, and Mary the rrudher of James, and Salome, bought spices, that they might

2 come and anoint him. And very early on the first day of the

3 week, they come to the tomb when the sun was risen. And they were saying among themselves. Who shall roll us away the stone

4 from the door of the tomb? and looking up, they see that the stone

5 is rolled back: for it was exceeding great. And entering into the tomb, they saw a young man sitting on the right side, arrayed in

6 a white robe; and they were amazed. And he satth unto them, Be not amazed: ye seek Jesus, the Nazarene, which hath been crucilied: he is risen; he is not here: behold, the place where they

7 laid him! But go, tell his disciples and Peter, He goeth before

8 you into Galilee: there shall ye see him, as he said unto you. And they went out, and fled from the tomb; for trembling and as'touislimcnt had come upon them: and they said nothing to any one; for they were afraid.

9 Now when he was risen early on the first day of the week, he appeared first to Mary Magdalene, from whom be had cast out

10 seven devils. She went and told them that had been with him.

11 as they mourned and wept. And they, when they heard that hi was alive, and had been seen of her, disbelieved.

12 And after these things he was manifested in another form unto

13 two of them, as they walked, on their way into the country. And they went away and told it unto the rest: neither believed they them.

14 And afterward he was manifested unto the eleven themselves as they sat at meat; and he upbraided them with their unbelief and hardness of heart, because they believed not them which had seen

15 him after he was risen. And he said unto them, Go ye into all

16 the world, and preach the gospel to the whole creation. He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that disbelievetb.

17 shall be condemned. And these signs shall follow them that believe: in my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak

18 with new tongues; they shall take up serpents, and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall in no wise hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.

19 So then the Lord Jesus, after he had spoken unto them, was received up into heaven, and sat down at the right hand of God.

20 And they went forth, and preached everywhere, the Lord working with them, and confirming the word by the signs that followed. Amen.

THE GOSPEL ACCORDING TO

'S. LUKE.

1 FoRASsrucH as many have taken in hand to draw up a narrative concerning those matters which have been fulfilled among us,

2 even as they delivered them uuto us, which from the beginning

3 were eyewitnesses and ministers of the word, it seemed good to me also, having traced the course of all things accurately from tlie first, to write uuto thee in order, most excellent Theophilus;

i that thou mightest kuow the certaiuty concerning the things wherein thou wast instructed.

5 Tiiere was in the days of Herod, king of Judaea, a certain priest named Zacharias, of the course of Abijah: and he had a wife of the daughters of Aaron, and her name was Elisabeth.

6 And they were both righteous before God, walking in all the

7 commandments and ordinances of the Lord blameless. And they had no child, because that Elisabeth was barren, and they both were now well stricken in years.

8 Now it came to pass, while he executed the priest's office before

9 God in the order of his course, according to the custom of the priest's office, his lot was to enter into the temple of the Lord and

10 burn incense. And the whole multitude of the people were pray

11 ing without at the hour of incense. And there appeared unto him an angel of the Lord standing on the right side of the altar

12 of incense. And Zacharias was troubled when he saw him. and

13 fear fell upon him. But the angel said unto him, Fear not, Zacharias: because thy supplication is heard, and thy wife Elisabeth

14 shall bear thee a son, and thou shalt call his name John. And thou shalt have joy and gladness; and many shall rejoice at his

15 birth. For he shall be great in the sight of the Lord, and he shall drink no wiue nor strong drink; and he shall be filled with the

16 Holy Ghost, even from his mother's womb. And many of the

17 children of Israel shall he turn unto the Lord their God. And he shall go before his face in the spirit and power of Elijah, to turn the hearts of the fathers to the children, and the disobedient to walk in the wisdom of the just; to make ready for the Lord a

18 people prepared for him. And Zacharias said unto the angsl. Whereby shall I know this? for I am an old man, and my wife

19 well stricken in years. And the angel answering said unto him, I am Gabriel, that stand in the presence of God; and I was sent

20 to speak unto thee, and to bring thee these good tidings. And behold, thou shalt be silent and not able to speak, until the day that those things shall come to pass, because thou believedst not

21 my words, which shall be fulfilled in their season. And the people were waiting for Zacharias, and they marvelled while he

22 tarried in the temple. And when he came out, he could not speak unto them: and they perceived that he had seen a vision in the temple: and he continued making signs unto them, and*re

23 mained dumb. And it came to pass, when the days of his ministration were fulfilled, he departed unto his house."

24 And after these days Elisabeth his wife conceived; and she hid

25 herself five months, saying, Thus hath the Lord done unto me in the days wherein he looked upon me, to take away my reproach among men.

26 Now in the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent from God

27 unto a city of Galilee, named Nazareth, to a virgin betrothed to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David; and the vir

28 gin's name was Mary. And he came in unto her, and said. Hail,

29 thou that art highly favoured, the Lord is with thee. But she was greatly troubled at the saying, and cast in her mind what

30 maimer of salutation this might be. And the angel said unto her,

31 Fear not, Mary: for thou hast found favour with God. And behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and

32 shalt call his name Jesus. He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the Most High: and the Lord God shall give unto him

33 the throne of his father David: and he shall reign over the house

34 of Jacob forever; and of his kingdom there shall be no end. And Mary said unto the angel, How shall this be, seeing I know not a

35 man? And the angel answered and said unto her, The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the power of the Most High shall overshadow thee: wherefore also that which is to be born shall

36 be called holy, the Son of God. And behold, Elisabeth thy kinswoman, she also hath conceived a son in her old age: and this is

37 the sixth month with her that was called barren. For no word

38 from God shall be void of power. And Mary said, Behold, the handmaid of the Lord; be it unto me according to thy word. And the angel departed from her.

39 And Mary arose in these days and went into the hill country

40 with haste, into a city of Judah; and entered into the house of

41 Zacharias and saluted Elisabeth. And it came to pass, when Elisabeth heard the salutation of Mary, the-babe leaped in her

42 womb; and Elisabeth was filled with the Holy Ghost; and she lifted up her voice with a loud cry, and said, Blessed art thou

43 among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb. And whence is this to me, that the mother of my Lord should come unto me?

44 For behold, when the voice of thy salutation came into mine ears,

45 the babe leaped in my womb for joy. And blessed is she that believed; for there shall be a fulfilment of the things which have

46 been spoken to her from the Lord. And Mary said.

My soul doth magnify the Lord,

47 And my spirit hath rejoiced in God my Saviour.

48 For he hath looked upon the low estate of his handmaiden: For behold, from henceforth all generations shall call me

blessed.

49 For he that is mighty hath done to me great things; And holy is his name.

£0 And his mercy is unto generations and generations

On them that fear him. 51 He hath shewed strength with his arm;

He hath scattered the proud in theimagination of their heart. 53 He hath put down princes from their thrones,

And hath exalted them of low degree.

53 The hungry he hath filled with good things; And the rich he hath sent empty away.

54 He hath holpen Israel his servant, That he might remember mercy

55 (As he spake unto our fathers)

Toward Abraham and his seed for ever. *

56 And Mary abode with her about three months, and returned unto her house.

57 Now Elisabeth's time was fulfilled that she should be delivered;

58 and she brought forth a son. And her neighbours and her kinsfolk heard that the Lord had magnified his mercy towards her;

59 and they rejoiced with her. And it came to pass on the eighth day, that they came to circumcise the child; and they would have

60 called him Zacharias, after the name of his fattier. And his mother answered and said, Not so; but he shall be called John.

61 And they said unto her, There is none of thy kindred that is

62 called by this name. And they made signs to his father, what he

63 would have him called. And he asked for a writing tablet, and

64 wrote, saying, His name is John. And they marvelled all. And his mouth was opened immediately, and his tongue loosed, and he

65 spake, blessing God. And fear came on all that dwelt round about them: and all these sayings were noised abroad throughout

66 all the hill coHntryof Judaea. And all that heard them laid them up in their heart, saying, What then shall this child be? For the hand of the Lord was with him.

67 And his father Zacharias was filled with the Holy Ghost, and prophesied, saying,

68 Blessed be the Lord, the God of Israel;

For he hath visited and wrought redemption for his people,

69 And hath raised up a horn of salvation for U3 In the house of his servant David

70 (As he spake by the mouth of his holy prophets which have

been since the world began),

71 Salvation from our enemies, and from the hand of all that

hate us; 73 To shew mercy towards our fathers,

And to remember his holy covenant; 73 The oath which he sware unto Abraham our father.
