AKE heed that ye do not your alms before men, to be seen of them: otherwise ye have no reward of your father which is

in heaven.

d2 Therefore, when thou doest

pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.

10 Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth as it is in heaven.

11 Give us this day our daily bread.

12 And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.

13 And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen. b 14 For, if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you :

15 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 appear
unto men to fast. Verily, I say unto
you, They have their reward.
d 17 But thou, when thou fastest,
anoint thine head, and wash thy
face;

18 That thou appear not unto men to fast, but unto thy Father, which is in secret: and thy Father, which seeth in secret, shall reward thee openly.

d 19 ↑ Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal.

27 Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature?

28 And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin;

29 And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon, in all his glory,was not arrayed like one of these.

30 Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which to-day is, and to-morrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith? p 31 Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, what shall we drink? or, wherewithal shall we be clothed ?

"UDGE not, that ye be not judged.

2 For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged; and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again.

9 Or what man is there of you, whom if his son ask bread, will he give him a stone?

d 15 ¶ Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.

22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?

23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity. i 24 T Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock :

25 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not, for it was founded upon a rock.

26 And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand:

27 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fali of it.

20 Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.

thou tell no man: but go thy way, shew thyself to the priest, and offer the gift that Moses commanded, for a testimony unto them.

d 4 And Jesus saith unto him, See and healed all that were sick; a 17 That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Esaias the prophet, saying, Himself took our infirmities and bare our sicknesses. f 18 Now when Jesus saw great multitudes about him, he gave commandment to depart unto the other side.

f5 ¶ And when Jesus was entered into Capernaum, there came unto him a centurion, beseeching him, 6 And saying, Lord, my servant lieth at home sick of the palsy, grievously tormented.

said unto him, Master, I will follow
thee whithersoever thou goest.

foxes have holes, and the birds of
the air have nests; but the Son of
man hath not where to lay his head.

said unto him, Lord, suffer me first

f10 When Jesus heard it, he marvelled, and said to them that followed, Verily I say unto you, I have not found so great faith, no, not in Israel.

24 And behold, there arose a great tempest in the sea, insomuch that the ship was covered with the waves: but he was asleep.

25 And his disciples came to him, and awoke him, saying, Lord, save us: we perish.

t 11 And I say unto you, That many shall come from the east and west, and shall sit down with Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, m 26 And he saith unto them, Why in the kingdom of heaven: are ye fearful, O ye of little faith? Then he arose, and rebuked the winds and the sea; and there was a great calm.

12 But the children of the kingdom shall be cast out into outer darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

turion, Go thy way; and as thou

into Peter's house, he saw his wife's
mother laid, and sick of a fever.

the fever left her: and she arose,
and ministered unto them.

m 16 ¶ When the even was come,
they brought unto him many that
were possessed with devils: and he
cast out the spirits with his word.

27 But the men marvelled, saying, What manner of man is this, that even the winds and the sea obey him!

ƒ 28 ¶ And when he was come to
the other side, into the country of
the Gergesenes, there met him two
possessed with devils, coming out of
the tombs, exceeding fierce, so that
no man might pass by that way.

saying, What have we to do with
thee, Jesus, thou Son of God? art

31 So the devils besought him, saying, If thou cast us out, suffer us to go away into the herd of swine. m 32 And he said unto them, Go. And when they were come out, they went into the herd of swine: and behold, the whole herd of swine ran violently down a steep place into the sea, and perished in the waters.

f 10 ¶ And it came to pass, as Jesus sat at meat in the house, behold, many publicans and sinners came and sat down with him and his disciples.

11 And when the pharisees saw it, they said unto his disciples, Why eateth your Master with publicans and sinners?

ND he entered into a ship, and passed over, and came into his own city.

2 And behold, they brought to him a man sick of the palsy, lying on a bed and Jesus, seeing their faith, said unto the sick of the palsy, Son, be of good cheer; thy sins be forgiven thee.

3 And behold, certain of the scribes said within themselves, This man blasphemeth. t 4 And Jesus, knowing their thoughts, said, Wherefore think ye evil in your hearts?

5 For whether is easier to say, Thy sins be forgiven thee; or to say, Arise, and walk?

t 6 But that ye may know that the Son of man hath power on earth to forgive sins, (then saith he to the sick of the palsy,) Arise, take up thy bed, and go unto thine house. m 7 And he arose, and departed

to his house.

f8 But when the multitude saw it, they marvelled, and glorified God, which had given such power

unto men.

f 14 T Then came to him the disciples of John, saying, Why do we and the Pharisees fast oft, but thy disciples fast not?

t 15 And Jesus said unto them, Can the children of the bride-chamber mourn, as long as the bridegroom is with them? but the days will come, when the bridegroom shall be taken from them, and then shall they fast.

D 16 Noman putteth a piece of new cloth unto an old garment: for that which is put in to fill it up, taketh from the garment, and the rent is made worse.

o 17 Neither do men put new wine into old bottles: else the bottles break, and the wine runneth out, and the bottles perish: but they put new wine into new bottles, and both are preserved. f 18 T While he spake these things unto them, behold, there came a certain ruler, and worshipped him, saying, My daughter is even now dead: but come and lay thy hand upon her, and she shall live.

19 And Jesus arose, and follow. d 91 And as Jesus passed forthed him, and so did his disciples.
