MATTHEW CHAPTER 3
Then cometh Jesus from Galilee to Jordan unto John, to be baptized of
MAT 3:14 But John forbad him, saying, I have need
to be baptized of thee, and comest thou to me?
3:15 And Jesus answering said unto him, Suffer it to be so
for thus it becometh us to fulfil all righteousness. Then he
MAT 3:16 And
Jesus, when he was baptized, went up straightway out of the water: and,
lo, the heavens were opened unto him, and he saw the Spirit of God
descending like a dove, and lighting upon him:
MAT 3:17 And lo a voice from heaven, saying, This
is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.
MATTHEW CHAPTER 4
Then was Jesus led up of the spirit into the wilderness to be tempted
of the devil.
4:2 And when he had fasted forty days and forty nights, he
was afterward an hungred.
4:3 And when the tempter came to him, he said, If thou be the
of God, command that these stones be made bread.
4:4 But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not
by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of
4:7 Jesus said unto him, It is written again, Thou shalt not
tempt the Lord thy God.
4:10 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
MAT 4:17 From that time Jesus began to preach, and
to say, Repent: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.
MAT 4:18 And
Jesus, walking by the sea of Galilee, saw two brethren, Simon called
Peter, and Andrew his brother, casting a net into the sea: for they
MAT 4:19 And he saith unto them, Follow me, and I will make you
fishers of men.
MAT 4:20 And they straightway left their nets, and
5: 4 Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be
MATTHEW CHAPTER 5
5: 3 Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the
kingdom of heaven.
MAT 5: 5 Blessed are the meek: for they shall
inherit the earth.
MAT 5: 6 Blessed are they which do hunger and
thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled.
MAT 5: 7 Blessed are the merciful: for they shall
MAT 5: 8 Blessed are the pure in heart: for they
shall see God.
MAT 5: 9 Blessed are the peacemakers: for they
shall be called the children of God.
MAT 5: 10 Blessed are they which are persecuted for
righteousness' sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
MAT 5: 11 Blessed are ye, when men shall revile
you, and persecute you, and shall
say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake.
MAT 5: 12 Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great
reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before
MAT 5: 13 Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the
salt have lost his savour,
wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but
to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men.
MAT 5: 14 Ye are the light of the world. A city
that is set on an hill cannot be hid.
MAT 5: 15 Neither do men light a candle, and put it
under a bushel, but on a
candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house.
MAT 5: 16 Let your light so shine before men, that
see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.
MAT 5: 17 Think not that I am come to destroy the
law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil.
MAT 5: 18 For verily I say unto you, Till heaven
and earth pass, one jot or one
tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.
MAT 5: 19 Whosoever therefore shall break one of
these least commandments, and
shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of
heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called
great in the kingdom of heaven.
MAT 5: 20 For I say unto you, That except your
righteousness shall exceed the
righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, ye shall in no case enter
into the kingdom of heaven.
MAT 5: 21 Ye have heard that it was said of them of
old time, Thou shalt not
kill; and whosoever shall kill shall be in danger of the judgment:
MAT 5: 22 But I say unto you, That whosoever is
angry with his brother without a
cause shall be in danger of the judgment: and whosoever shall say to
his brother, Raca, shall be in danger of the council: but whosoever
shall say, Thou fool, shall be in danger of hell fire.
MAT 5: 23 Therefore if thou bring thy gift to the
and there rememberest that thy brother hath ought against thee;
MAT 5: 24 Leave there thy gift before the altar,
and go thy
way; first be reconciled to thy brother, and then come and offer thy
MAT 5: 25 Agree with thine adversary quickly,
whiles thou art in the way with
him; lest at any time the adversary deliver thee to the judge, and the
judge deliver thee to the officer, and thou be cast into prison.
MAT 5: 26 Verily I say unto thee, Thou shalt by no
come out thence, till thou hast paid the uttermost farthing.
MAT 5: 27 Ye have heard that it was said by them of
old time, Thou shalt not commit adultery:
MAT 5: 28 But I say unto you, That whosoever
looketh on a
woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his
MAT 5: 29 And if thy right eye offend thee, pluck
it out, and cast it from thee:
for it is profitable for thee that one of thy members should perish,
and not that thy whole body should be cast into hell.
MAT 5: 30 And if thy right hand offend thee, cut it
off, and cast it from thee:
for it is profitable for thee that one of thy members should perish,
and not that thy whole body should be cast into hell.
MAT 5: 31 It hath been said, Whosoever shall put
away his wife, let him give her a writing of divorcement:
MAT 5: 32 But I say unto you, That whosoever shall
put away his wife, saving for
the cause of fornication, causeth her to commit adultery: and whosoever
shall marry her that is divorced committeth adultery.
MAT 5: 33 Again, ye have heard that it hath been
said by them of old time, Thou
shalt not forswear thyself, but shalt perform unto the Lord thine
MAT 5: 34 But I say unto you, Swear not at all;
neither by heaven; for it is God's throne:
MAT 5: 35 Nor by the earth; for it is his
footstool: neither by Jerusalem; for it is the city of the great King.
MAT 5: 36 Neither shalt thou swear by thy head,
because thou canst not make one hair white or black.
MAT 5: 37 But let your communication be, Yea, yea;
Nay, nay: for whatsoever is more than these cometh of evil.
MAT 5: 38 Ye have heard that it hath been said, An
eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth:
MAT 5: 39 But I say unto you, That ye resist not
whosoever shall smite thee on thy right cheek, turn to him the other
MAT 5: 40 And if any man will sue thee at the law,
and take away thy coat, let him have thy cloak also.
MAT 5: 41 And whosoever shall compel thee to go a
mile, go with him twain.
MAT 5: 42 Give to him that asketh thee, and from
him that would borrow of thee turn not thou away.
MAT 5: 43
Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbour,
and hate thine enemy.
MAT 5: 44 But I say unto you, Love your enemies,
bless them that curse you, do
good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use
you, and persecute you;
MAT 5: 45 That ye may be the children of your
Father which is in heaven: for he
maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on
the just and on the unjust.
MAT 5: 46 For if ye love them which love you, what
reward have ye? do not even the publicans the same?
MAT 5: 47 And if ye salute your brethren only, what
do ye more than others? do not even the publicans so?
MAT 5: 48 Be ye therefore perfect, even as your
Father which is in heaven is perfect.
MATTHEW CHAPTER 6
Take 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.
MAT 6: 2 Therefore when thou doest thine alms, do
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 their reward.
MAT 6: 3 But when thou doest alms, let not thy left
hand know what thy right hand doeth:
MAT 6: 4 That thine alms may be in secret: and thy
Father which seeth in secret himself shall reward thee openly.
MAT 6: 5 And when thou prayest, thou shalt not be
hypocrites are: for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and in
the corners of the streets, that they may be seen of men. Verily I say
unto you, They have their reward.
MAT 6: 6 But thou, when thou prayest, enter into
closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is
in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee
MAT 6: 7 But when ye pray, use not vain
repetitions, as the
heathen do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much
MAT 6: 8 Be not ye therefore like unto them: for
Father knoweth what things ye have need of, before ye ask him.
MAT 6: 9 After this manner therefore pray ye: Our
Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.
MAT 6: 10 Thy|k|ng|m come, Thy will be done in
earth, as it is in heaven.|
MAT 6: 11 Give us this day our daily bread.
MAT 6: 12 And forgive us our debts, as we forgive
MAT 6: 13 And lead us not into temptation, but
from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for
MAT 6: 14 For if ye forgive men their trespasses,
your heavenly Father will also forgive you:
MAT 6: 15 But if ye forgive not men their
trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.
MAT 6: 16 Moreover when ye fast, be not, as the
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.
MAT 6: 17 But thou, when thou fastest, anoint thine
head, and wash thy face;
MAT 6: 18 That thou appear not unto men to fast,
thy Father which is in secret: and thy Father, which seeth in secret,
shall reward thee openly.
MAT 6: 19 Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon
where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and
MAT 6: 20 But lay up for yourselves treasures in
where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not
break through nor steal:
MAT 6: 21 For where your treasure is, there will
your heart be also.
MAT 6: 22 The light of the body is the eye: if
thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light.
MAT 6: 23 But if thine eye be evil, thy whole body
full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in thee be darkness,
how great is that darkness!
MAT 6: 24 No man can serve two masters: for either
hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and
despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.
MAT 6: 25 Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought
your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your
body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the
body than raiment??
MAT 6:26 Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow
neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father
feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they?
MAT 6:27 Which of you by taking thought can add one
cubit unto his stature?
MAT 6:28 And why take ye thought for raiment?
lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they
MAT 6:29 And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon
in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.
MAT 6:30 Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of
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?
MAT 6:31 Therefore take no thought, saying, What
eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed?
(For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly
Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things.
MAT 6:33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and
his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.
MAT 6:34 Take therefore no thought for the morrow:
morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the
day is the evil thereof.
MATTHEW CHAPTER 7
7: 1 Judge not, that ye be not judged.
MAT 7: 2 For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall
judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you
MAT 7: 3 And why beholdest thou the mote that is in
brother's eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye?
MAT 7: 4 Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let
out the mote out of thine eye; and, behold, a beam is in thine own eye?
MAT 7: 5 Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam
thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out
of thy brother's eye.
MAT 7: 6 Give not that which is holy unto the dogs, neither
ye your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet,
and turn again and rend you.
MAT 7: 7 Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and
ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you:
MAT 7: 8 For every one that asketh receiveth; and
seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.
MAT 7: 9 Or what man is there of you, whom if his
son ask bread, will he give him a stone?
MAT 7: 10 Or if he ask a fish, will he give him a
MAT 7: 11 If ye then, being evil, know how to give
gifts unto your children, how much more shall your Father which is in
heaven give good things to them that ask him?
MAT 7: 12 Therefore all things whatsoever ye would
should do to you, do ye even so to them: for this is the law and the
MAT 7: 13 Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide
gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there
be which go in thereat:
MAT 7: 14 Because strait is the gate, and narrow is
way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.
MAT 7: 15 Beware of false prophets, which come to
you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.
MAT 7: 16 Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do
men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?
MAT 7: 17 Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit;
but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit.
MAT 7: 18 A good tree cannot bring forth evil
fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.
MAT 7: 19 Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is
hewn down, and cast into the fire.
MAT 7: 20 Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know
MAT 7: 21 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord,
shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of
my Father which is in heaven.
MAT 7: 22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord,
we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils?
and in thy name done many wonderful works?
MAT 7: 23 And then will I profess unto them, I
never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.
MAT 7: 24 Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings
mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his
house upon a rock:
MAT 7: 25 And the rain descended, and the floods
the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was
founded upon a rock.
MATTHEW CHAPTER 8
8: 2 And, behold, there came a leper and worshipped him,
saying, Lord, if thou wilt, thou canst make me clean.
MAT 8: 3 And
Jesus put forth his hand, and touched him, saying, I will; be thou
clean. And immediately his leprosy was cleansed.
MAT 8: 4 And
Jesus saith unto him, See 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.
MAT 8: 5 And when Jesus was entered into Capernaum,
there came unto him a centurion, beseeching him,
MAT 8: 6 And saying, Lord, my servant lieth at home
sick of the palsy, grievously tormented.
MAT 8: 7 And Jesus saith unto him, I will come and
MAT 8: 8 The
centurion answered and said, Lord, I am not worthy that thou shouldest
come under my roof: but speak the word only, and my servant shall be
MAT 8: 9 For I
am a man under authority, having soldiers under me: and I say to this
man, Go, and he goeth; and to another, Come, and he cometh; and to my
servant, Do this, and he doeth it.
MAT 8: 10 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.
MAT 8: 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, in the kingdom of heaven.
MAT 8: 12 But
the children of the kingdom shall be cast out into outer darkness:
there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
MAT 8: 13 And
Jesus said unto the centurion, Go thy way; and as thou hast believed,
so be it done unto thee. And his servant was healed in the selfsame
MAT 8: 19 And a certain scribe came, and said unto
Master, I will follow thee whithersoever thou goest.
MAT 8: 20 And
Jesus saith unto him, The foxes have holes, and the birds of the air
have nests; but the Son of man hath not where to lay his head.
MAT 8: 21 And another of his disciples said unto
him, Lord, suffer me first to go and bury my father.
MAT 8: 22 But Jesus said unto him, Follow me; and let the
dead bury their dead.
MAT 8: 23 And when he was entered into a ship, his
disciples followed him.
MAT 8: 24 And,
behold, there arose a great tempest in the sea, insomuch that the ship
was covered with the waves: but he was asleep.
MAT 8: 25 And his disciples came to him, and awoke
him, saying, Lord, save us: we perish
26 And he saith unto them, Why are ye fearful, O ye of little
faith? Then he arose, and rebuked the winds and the sea; and there was
a great calm.
MAT 8: 27 But the men marvelled, saying, What
manner of man
is this, that even the winds and the sea obey him!
MAT 8: 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.
MAT 8: 29 And,
behold, they cried out, saying, What have we to do with thee, Jesus,
thou Son of God? art thou come hither to torment us before the time?
MAT 8: 30 And there was a good way off from them an
herd of many swine feeding.
MAT 8: 31 So the devils besought him, saying, If
us out, suffer us to go away into the herd of swine.
MAT 8: 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.
MAT 8: 33 And
they that kept them fled, and went their ways into the city, and told
every thing, and what was befallen to the possessed of the devils.
MAT 8: 34 And,
behold, the whole city came out to meet Jesus: and when they saw him,
they besought him that he would depart out of their coasts.
MATTHEW CHAPTER 9
9: 1 And he entered into a ship, and passed over, and came
into his own city.
MAT 9: 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.
MAT 9: 3 And, behold, certain of the scribes said
within themselves, This man blasphemeth.
MAT 9: 4 And Jesus knowing their thoughts said,
Wherefore think ye evil in your hearts?
MAT 9: 5 For whether is easier, to say, Thy sins be
forgiven thee; or to say, Arise, and walk?
MAT 9: 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.
MAT 9: 7 And he arose, and departed to his house.
MAT 9: 8 But when the multitudes saw it, they
and glorified God, which had given such power unto men.
MAT 9: 9 And as
Jesus passed forth from thence, he saw a man, named Matthew, sitting at
the receipt of custom: and he saith unto him, Follow me. And he arose,
and followed him.
MAT 9: 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.
MAT 9: 11 And
when the Pharisees saw it, they said unto his disciples, Why eateth
your Master with publicans and sinners?
MAT 9: 12 But
when Jesus heard that, he said unto them, They that be whole need not a
physician, but they that are sick.
MAT 9: 13 But
go ye and learn what that meaneth, I will have mercy, and not
sacrifice: for I am not come to call the righteous, but sinners to
MAT 9: 14 Then
came to him the disciples of John, saying, Why do we and the Pharisees
fast oft, but thy disciples fast not?
MAT 9: 15 And
Jesus said unto them, Can the children of the bridechamber 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.
MAT 9: 16 No
man 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
MAT 9: 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.
MAT 9: 18 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.
MAT 9: 19 And Jesus arose, and followed him, and so
did his disciples.
MAT 9: 20 And,
behold, a woman, which was diseased with an issue of blood twelve
years, came behind him, and touched the hem of his garment:
MAT 9: 21 For she said within herself, If I may but
touch his garment, I shall be whole.
MAT 9: 22 But
Jesus turned him about, and when he saw her, he said, Daughter, be of
good comfort; thy faith hath made thee whole. And the woman was made
whole from that hour.
MAT 9: 23 And when Jesus came into the ruler's
saw the minstrels and the people making a noise,
MAT 9: 24 He said unto them, Give place: for the
not dead, but sleepeth. And they laughed him to scorn.
MAT 9: 25 But when the people were put forth, he
went in, and took her by the hand, and the maid arose..
MAT 9: 28 And when he was come into the house, the
men came to him: and Jesus saith unto them, Believe ye that I am able
to do this? They said unto him, Yea, Lord.
MAT 9: 37 Then saith he unto his disciples, The
harvest truly is plenteous, but the labourers are few;
MAT 9: 38 Pray ye therefore the Lord of the
harvest, that he will send forth labourers into his harvest.
MATTHEW CHAPTER 10
10: 1 And when he had called unto him his twelve disciples,
gave them power against unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to heal
all manner of sickness and all manner of disease.
10: 2 Now
the names of the twelve apostles are these; The first, Simon, who is
called Peter, and Andrew his brother; James the son of Zebedee, and
John his brother;
Philip, and Bartholomew; Thomas, and Matthew the publican; James the
son of Alphaeus, and Lebbaeus, whose surname was Thaddaeus;
10: 4 Simon the Canaanite, and Judas Iscariot, who also
10: 5 These
twelve Jesus sent forth, and commanded them, saying, Go not into the
way of the Gentiles, and into any city of the Samaritans enter ye not:
10: 6 But go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel.
10: 7 And as ye go, preach, saying, The kingdom of heaven is
10: 8 Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast
out devils: freely ye have received, freely give.
10: 9 Provide neither gold, nor silver, nor brass in your
10: 10 Nor
scrip for your journey, neither two coats, neither shoes, nor yet
staves: for the workman is worthy of his meat.
10: 11 And
into whatsoever city or town ye shall enter, enquire who in it is
worthy; and there abide till ye go thence.
10: 12 And when ye come into an house, salute it.
10: 13 And
if the house be worthy, let your peace come upon it: but if it be not
worthy, let your peace return to you.
10: 14 And
whosoever shall not receive you, nor hear your words, when ye depart
out of that house or city, shake off the dust of your feet.
Verily I say unto you, It shall be more tolerable for the land of Sodom
and Gomorrha in the day of judgment, than for that city.
Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves: be ye
therefore wise as serpents, and harmless as doves.
10: 17 But
beware of men: for they will deliver you up to the councils, and they
will scourge you in their synagogues;
10: 18 And
ye shall be brought before governors and kings for my sake, for a
testimony against them and the Gentiles.
10: 19 But
when they deliver you up, take no thought how or what ye shall speak:
for it shall be given you in that same hour what ye shall speak.
10: 20 For it is not ye that speak, but the Spirit of your
Father which speaketh in you.
10: 21 And
the brother shall deliver up the brother to death, and the father the
child: and the children shall rise up against their parents, and cause
them to be put to death.
10: 22 And ye shall be hated of all men for my name's sake:
but he that endureth to the end shall be saved.
10: 23 But
when they persecute you in this city, flee ye into another: for verily
I say unto you, Ye shall not have gone over the cities of Israel, till
the Son of man be come.
10: 24 The disciple is not above his master, nor the servant
above his lord.
10: 25 It
is enough for the disciple that he be as his master, and the servant as
his lord. If they have called the master of the house Beelzebub, how
much more shall they call them of his household?
10: 26 Fear
them not therefore: for there is nothing covered, that shall not be
revealed; and hid, that shall not be known.
10: 27 What
I tell you in darkness, that speak ye in light: and what ye hear in the
ear, that preach ye upon the housetops.
10: 28 And
fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul:
but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in
10: 29 Are
not two sparrows sold for a farthing? and one of them shall not fall on
the ground without your Father.
10: 30 But the very hairs of your head are all numbered.
10: 31 Fear ye not therefore, ye are of more value than many
Whosoever therefore shall confess me before men, him will I confess
also before my Father which is in heaven.
10: 33 But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I
also deny before my Father which is in heaven.
10: 34 Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I
came not to send peace, but a sword.
10: 35 For
I am come to set a man at variance against his father, and the daughter
against her mother, and the daughter in law against her mother in
10: 36 And a man's foes shall be they of his own household.
10: 37 He
that loveth father or mother more than me is not worthy of me: and he
that loveth son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me.
10: 38 And he that taketh not his cross, and followeth after
me, is not worthy of me.
10: 39 He that findeth his life shall lose it: and he that
loseth his life for my sake shall find it.
10: 40 He that receiveth you receiveth me, and he that
receiveth me receiveth him that sent me.
10: 41 He
that receiveth a prophet in the name of a prophet shall receive a
prophet's reward; and he that receiveth a righteous man in the name of
a righteous man shall receive a righteous man's reward.
10: 42 And
whosoever shall give to drink unto one of these little ones a cup of
cold water only in the name of a disciple, verily I say unto you, he
shall in no wise lose his reward.
MATTHEW CHAPTER 11
MAT 11: 1
And it came to pass, when Jesus had made an end
of commanding his twelve disciples, he departed thence to teach and to
preach in their cities.
MAT 11: 2 Now when John had heard in the prison the
works of Christ, he sent two of his disciples,
MAT 11: 3 And said unto him, Art thou he that
should come, or do we look for another?
MAT 11: 4 Jesus answered and said unto them, Go and
shew John again those things which ye do hear and see:
MAT 11: 5 The blind receive their sight, and the
the lepers are cleansed, and the deaf hear, the dead are raised up, and
the poor have the gospel preached to them.
MAT 11: 6 And blessed is he, whosoever shall not be
offended in me.
MAT 11: 7 And as they departed, Jesus began to say
multitudes concerning John, What went ye out into the wilderness to
see? A reed shaken with the wind?
MAT 11: 8 But what went ye out for to see? A man
soft raiment? behold, they that wear soft clothing are in kings'
MAT 11: 9 But what went ye out for to see? A
prophet? yea, I say unto you, and more than a prophet.
MAT 11: 10 For this is he, of whom it is written,
send my messenger before thy face, which shall prepare thy way before
MAT 11: 11 Verily I say unto you, Among them that
of women there hath not risen a greater than John the Baptist:
notwithstanding he that is least in the kingdom of heaven is greater
MAT 11: 12 And from the days of John the Baptist
the kingdom of heaven suffereth violence, and the violent take it by
MAT 11: 13 For all the prophets and the law
prophesied until John.
MAT 11: 14 And if ye will receive it, this is
Elias, which was for to come.
MAT 11: 15 He that hath ears to hear, let him hear.
MAT 11: 16 But whereunto shall I liken this
is like unto children sitting in the markets, and calling unto their
MAT 11: 17 And saying, We have piped unto you, and
not danced; we have mourned unto you, and ye have not lamented.
MAT 11: 18 For John came neither eating nor
drinking, and they say, He hath a devil.
MAT 11: 19 The Son of man came eating and drinking, and they
Behold a man gluttonous, and a winebibber, a friend of publicans and
sinners. But wisdom is justified of her children.
MAT 11: 20 Then began he to upbraid the cities
of his mighty works were done, because they repented not:
MAT 11: 21 Woe unto thee, Chorazin! woe unto thee, Bethsaida!
if the mighty works, which were done in you, had been done in Tyre and
Sidon, they would have repented long ago in sackcloth and ashes.
MAT 11: 22 But I say unto you, It shall be more tolerable for
Tyre and Sidon at the day of judgment, than for you.
MAT 11: 23 And thou, Capernaum, which art exalted
heaven, shalt be brought down to hell: for if the mighty works, which
have been done in thee, had been done in Sodom, it would have remained
until this day.
MAT 11: 24 But I say unto you, That it shall be more
for the land of Sodom in the day of judgment, than for thee.
MAT 11: 25 At that time Jesus answered and said, I thank
Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because thou hast hid these things
from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them unto babes.
MAT 11: 26 Even so, Father: for so it seemed good in thy sight.
MAT 11: 27 All things are delivered unto me of my Father:
and no man knoweth the Son, but the Father; neither knoweth any man the
Father, save the Son, and he to whomsoever the Son will reveal him.
MAT 11: 28 Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
MAT 11: 29 Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am
meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.
MAT 11: 30 For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.
MATTHEW CHAPTER 12
12: 1 At that time Jesus went on the sabbath day through the
corn; and his disciples were an hungred, and began to pluck the ears of
corn and to eat.
MAT 12: 2 But when the Pharisees saw it, they said unto
him, Behold, thy disciples do that which is not lawful to do upon the
MAT 12: 3 But he said unto them, Have ye not read what
David did, when he was an hungred, and they that were with him;
MAT 12: 4 How he entered into the house of God, and did eat
the shewbread, which was not lawful for him to eat, neither for them
which were with him, but only for the priests?
MAT 12: 5 Or have ye not read in the law, how that on the
sabbath days the priests in the temple profane the sabbath, and are
MAT 12: 6 But I say unto you, That in this place is one greater than the temple.
MAT 12: 7 But if ye had known what this meaneth, I will
have mercy, and not sacrifice, ye would not have condemned the
MAT 12: 8 For the Son of man is Lord even of the sabbath day.
MAT 12: 9 And when he was departed thence, he went into their synagogue:
MAT 12: 10 And, behold, there was a man which had his hand
withered. And they asked him, saying, Is it lawful to heal on the
sabbath days? that they might accuse him.
MAT 12: 11 And he said unto them, What man shall there be
among you, that shall have one sheep, and if it fall into a pit on the
sabbath day, will he not lay hold on it, and lift it out?
MAT 12: 12 How much then is a man better than a sheep? Wherefore it is lawful to do well on the sabbath days.
MAT 12: 13 Then saith he to the man, Stretch forth thine
hand. And he stretched it forth; and it was restored whole, like as the
MAT 12: 14 Then the Pharisees went out, and held a council against him, how they might destroy him.
MAT 12: 15 But when Jesus knew it, he withdrew himself from
thence: and great multitudes followed him, and he healed them all;
MAT 12: 16 And charged them that they should not make him known:
MAT 12: 17 That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Esaias the prophet, saying,
MAT 12: 18 Behold my servant, whom I have chosen; my
beloved, in whom my soul is well pleased: I will put my spirit upon
him, and he shall shew judgment to the Gentiles.
MAT 12: 19 He shall not strive, nor cry; neither shall any man hear his voice in the streets.
MAT 12: 20 A bruised reed shall he not break, and smoking
flax shall he not quench, till he send forth judgment unto victory.
MAT 12: 21 And in his name shall the Gentiles trust.
MAT 12: 22 Then was brought unto him one possessed with a devil,
blind, and dumb: and he healed him, insomuch that the blind and dumb
both spake and saw.
MAT 12: 23 And all the people were amazed, and said, Is not this the son of David?
MAT 12: 24 But when the Pharisees heard it, they said, This
fellow doth not cast out devils, but by Beelzebub the prince of the
MAT 12: 25 And Jesus knew their thoughts, and said unto
them, Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation;
and every city or house divided against itself shall not stand:
MAT 12: 26 And if Satan cast out Satan, he is divided against himself; how shall then his kingdom stand?
MAT 12: 27 And if I by Beelzebub cast out devils, by whom
do your children cast them out? therefore they shall be your judges.
MAT 12: 28 But if I cast out devils by the Spirit of God, then the kingdom of God is come unto you.
MAT 12: 29 Or else how can one enter into a strong man's
house, and spoil his goods, except he first bind the strong man? and
then he will spoil his house.
MAT 12: 30 He that is not with me is against me; and he that gathereth not with me scattereth abroad.
MAT 12: 31 Wherefore I say unto you, All manner of sin and
blasphemy shall be forgiven unto men: but the blasphemy against the
Holy Ghost shall not be forgiven unto men.
MAT 12: 32 And whosoever speaketh a word against the Son of
man, it shall be forgiven him: but whosoever speaketh against the Holy
Ghost, it shall not be forgiven him, neither in this world, neither in
the world to come.
MAT 12: 33 Either make the tree good, and his fruit good;
or else make the tree corrupt, and his fruit corrupt: for the tree is
known by his fruit.
MAT 12: 34 O generation of vipers, how can ye, being evil,
speak good things? for out of the abundance of the heart the mouth
MAT 12: 35 A good man out of the good treasure of the heart
bringeth forth good things: and an evil man out of the evil treasure
bringeth forth evil things.
MAT 12: 36 But I say unto you, That every idle word that
men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of
MAT 12: 37 For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned.
MAT 12: 38 Then certain of the scribes and of the Pharisees
answered, saying, Master, we would see a sign from thee.
MAT 12: 39 But he answered and said unto them, An evil and
adulterous generation seeketh after a sign; and there shall no sign be
given to it, but the sign of the prophet Jonas:
MAT 12: 40 For as Jonas was three days and three nights in
the whale's belly; so shall the Son of man be three days and three
nights in the heart of the earth.
MAT 12: 41 The men of Nineveh shall rise in judgment with
this generation, and shall condemn it: because they repented at the
preaching of Jonas; and, behold, a greater than Jonas is here.
MAT 12: 42 The queen of the south shall rise up in the
judgment with this generation, and shall condemn it: for she came from
the uttermost parts of the earth to hear the wisdom of Solomon; and,
behold, a greater than Solomon is here.
MAT 12: 43 When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he
walketh through dry places, seeking rest, and findeth none.
MAT 12: 44 Then he saith, I will return into my house from
whence I came out; and when he is come, he findeth it empty, swept, and
MAT 12: 45 Then goeth he, and taketh with himself seven
other spirits more wicked than himself, and they enter in and dwell
there: and the last state of that man is worse than the first. Even so
shall it be also unto this wicked generation.
MAT 12: 46 While he yet talked to the people, behold, his
mother and his brethren stood without, desiring to speak with him.
MAT 12: 47 Then one said unto him, Behold, thy mother and thy brethren stand without, desiring to speak with thee.
MAT 12: 48 But he answered and said unto him that told him, Who is my mother? and who are my brethren?
MAT 12: 49 And he stretched forth his hand toward his disciples, and said, Behold my mother and my brethren!
MAT 12: 50 For whosoever shall do the will of my Father
which is in heaven, the same is my brother, and sister, and mother.
13: 2 And great multitudes were gathered together unto him, so
that he went into a ship, and sat; and the whole multitude stood on the
MATTHEW CHAPTER 13
MAT 13: 1 The same day went Jesus out of the house, and sat by the sea side.
MAT 13: 3 And he spake many things unto them in parables, saying, Behold, a sower went forth to sow;
MAT 13: 4 And when he sowed, some seeds fell by the way side, and the fowls came and devoured them up:
MAT 13: 5 Some fell upon stony places, where they had not
much earth: and forthwith they sprung up, because they had no deepness
MAT 13: 6 And when the sun was up, they were scorched; and because they had no root, they withered away.
MAT 13: 7 And some fell among thorns; and the thorns sprung up, and choked them:
MAT 13: 8 But other fell into good ground, and brought
forth fruit, some an hundredfold, some sixtyfold, some thirtyfold.
MAT 13: 9 Who hath ears to hear, let him hear.
MAT 13: 10 And the disciples came, and said unto him, Why speakest thou unto them in parables?
MAT 13: 11 He answered and said unto them, Because it is
given unto you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to
them it is not given.
MAT 13: 12 For whosoever hath, to him shall be given, and
he shall have more abundance: but whosoever hath not, from him shall be
taken away even that he hath.
MAT 13: 13 Therefore speak I to them in parables: because
they seeing see not; and hearing they hear not, neither do they
MAT 13: 14 And in them is fulfilled the prophecy of Esaias,
which saith, By hearing ye shall hear, and shall not understand; and
seeing ye shall see, and shall not perceive:
MAT 13: 15 For this people's heart is waxed gross, and
their ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes they have closed; lest
at any time they should see with their eyes and hear with their ears,
and should understand with their heart, and should be converted, and I
should heal them.
MAT 13: 16 But blessed are your eyes, for they see: and your ears, for they hear.
MAT 13: 17 For verily I say unto you, That many prophets
and righteous men have desired to see those things which ye see, and
have not seen them; and to hear those things which ye hear, and have
not heard them.
MAT 13: 18 Hear ye therefore the parable of the sower.
MAT 13: 19 When any one heareth the word of the kingdom,
and understandeth it not, then cometh the wicked one, and catcheth away
that which was sown in his heart. This is he which received seed by the
MAT 13: 20 But he that received the seed into stony places,
the same is he that heareth the word, and anon with joy receiveth it;
MAT 13: 21 Yet hath he not root in himself, but dureth for
a while: for when tribulation or persecution ariseth because of the
word, by and by he is offended.
MAT 13: 22 He also that received seed among the thorns is
he that heareth the word; and the care of this world, and the
deceitfulness of riches, choke the word, and he becometh unfruitful.
MAT 13: 23 But he that received seed into the good ground
is he that heareth the word, and understandeth it; which also beareth
fruit, and bringeth forth, some an hundredfold, some sixty, some
MAT 13: 24 nother parable put he forth unto them, saying, The
kingdom of heaven is likened unto a man which sowed good seed in his
MAT 13: 25 But while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat, and went his way.
MAT 13: 26 But when the blade was sprung up, and brought forth fruit, then appeared the tares also.
MAT 13: 27 So the servants of the householder came and said
unto him, Sir, didst not thou sow good seed in thy field? from whence
then hath it tares?
MAT 13: 28 He said unto them, An enemy hath done this. The
servants said unto him, Wilt thou then that we go and gather them up?
MAT 13: 29 But he said, Nay; lest while ye gather up the tares, ye root up also the wheat with them.
MAT 13: 30 Let both grow together until the harvest: and in
the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, Gather ye together first
the tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them: but gather the wheat
into my barn.
MAT 13: 31 Another parable put he forth unto them, saying,
The kingdom of heaven is like to a grain of mustard seed, which a man
took, and sowed in his field:
MAT 13: 32 Which indeed is the least of all seeds: but when
it is grown, it is the greatest among herbs, and becometh a tree, so
that the birds of the air come and lodge in the branches thereof.
MAT 13: 33 Another parable spake he unto them; The kingdom
of heaven is like unto leaven, which a woman took, and hid in three
measures of meal, till the whole was leavened.
MAT 13: 34 All these things spake Jesus unto the multitude
in parables; and without a parable spake he not unto them:
MAT 13: 35 That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by
the prophet, saying, I will open my mouth in parables; I will utter
things which have been kept secret from the foundation of the world.
MAT 13: 36 Then Jesus sent the multitude away, and went
into the house: and his disciples came unto him, saying, Declare unto
us the parable of the tares of the field.
MAT 13: 37 He answered and said unto them, He that soweth the good seed is the Son of man;
MAT 13: 38 The field is the world; the good seed are the
children of the kingdom; but the tares are the children of the wicked
MAT 13: 39 The enemy that sowed them is the devil; the
harvest is the end of the world; and the reapers are the angels.
MAT 13: 40 As therefore the tares are gathered and burned in the fire; so shall it be in the end of this world.
MAT 13: 41 The Son of man shall send forth his angels, and
they shall gather out of his kingdom all things that offend, and them
which do iniquity;
MAT 13: 42 And shall cast them into a furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth.
MAT 13: 43 Then shall the righteous shine forth as the sun
in the kingdom of their Father. Who hath ears to hear, let him hear.
MAT 13: 44 Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto treasure hid
in a field; the which when a man hath found, he hideth, and for joy
thereof goeth and selleth all that he hath, and buyeth that field.
MAT 13: 45 Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a merchant man, seeking goodly pearls:
MAT 13: 46 Who, when he had found one pearl of great price, went and sold all that he had, and bought it.
MAT 13: 47 Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a net, that was cast into the sea, and gathered of every kind:
MAT 13: 48 Which, when it was full, they drew to shore, and
sat down, and gathered the good into vessels, but cast the bad away.
MAT 13: 49 So shall it be at the end of the world: the
angels shall come forth, and sever the wicked from among the just,
MAT 13: 50 And shall cast them into the furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth.
MAT 13: 51 Jesus saith unto them, Have ye understood all these things? They say unto him, Yea, Lord.
MAT 13: 52 Then said he unto them, Therefore every scribe
which is instructed unto the kingdom of heaven is like unto a man that
is an householder, which bringeth forth out of his treasure things new
MAT 13: 53 And it came to pass, that when Jesus had finished these parables, he departed thence.
MAT 13: 54 And when he was come into his own country, he
taught them in their synagogue, insomuch that they were astonished, and
said, Whence hath this man this wisdom, and these mighty works?
MAT 13: 55 Is not this the carpenter's son? is not his mother
called Mary? and his brethren, James, and Joses, and Simon, and Judas?
MAT 13: 56 And his sisters, are they not all with us? Whence then hath this man all these things?
MAT 13: 57 And they were offended in him. But Jesus said
unto them, A prophet is not without honour, save in his own country,
and in his own house.
MAT 13: 58 And he did not many mighty works there because of their unbelief.
MATTHEW CHAPTER 14
MAT 14: 10 And he sent, and beheaded John in the prison.
MAT 14: 11 And his head was brought in a charger, and given to the damsel: and she brought it to her mother.
MAT 14: 12 And his disciples came, and took up the body, and buried it, and went and told Jesus.
MAT 14: 13 When Jesus heard of it, he departed thence by
ship into a desert place apart: and when the people had heard thereof,
they followed him on foot out of the cities.
MAT 14: 14 And Jesus went forth, and saw a great multitude,
and was moved with compassion toward them, and he healed their sick.
MAT 14: 15 And when it was evening, his disciples came to
him, saying, This is a desert place, and the time is now past; send the
multitude away, that they may go into the villages, and buy themselves
MAT 14: 16 But Jesus said unto them, They need not depart; give ye them to eat.
MAT 14: 17 And they say unto him, We have here but five loaves, and two fishes.
MAT 14: 18 He said, Bring them hither to me.
MAT 14: 19 And he commanded the multitude to sit down on
the grass, and took the five loaves, and the two fishes, and looking up
to heaven, he blessed, and brake, and gave the loaves to his disciples,
and the disciples to the multitude.
MAT 14: 20 And they did all eat, and were filled: and they
took up of the fragments that remained twelve baskets full.
MAT 14: 21 And they that had eaten were about five thousand men, beside women and children.
MAT 14: 22 And straightway Jesus constrained his disciples
to get into a ship, and to go before him unto the other side, while he
sent the multitudes away.
MAT 14: 23 And when he had sent the multitudes away, he
went up into a mountain apart to pray: and when the evening was come,
he was there alone.
MAT 14: 24 But the ship was now in the midst of the sea, tossed with waves: for the wind was contrary.
MAT 14: 25 And in the fourth watch of the night Jesus went unto them, walking on the sea.
MAT 14: 26 And when the disciples saw him walking on the
sea, they were troubled, saying, It is a spirit; and they cried out for
MAT 14: 27 But straightway Jesus spake unto them, saying, Be of good cheer; it is I; be not afraid.
MAT 14: 28 And Peter answered him and said, Lord, if it be thou, bid me come unto thee on the water.
MAT 14: 29 And he said, Come. And when Peter was come down out of the ship, he walked on the water, to go to Jesus.
MAT 14: 30 But when he saw the wind boisterous, he was
afraid; and beginning to sink, he cried, saying, Lord, save me.
MAT 14: 31 And immediately Jesus stretched forth his hand,
and caught him, and said unto him, O thou of little faith, wherefore
didst thou doubt?
MAT 14: 32 And when they were come into the ship, the wind ceased.
MAT 14: 33 Then they that were in the ship came and worshipped him, saying, Of a truth thou art the Son of God.
MAT 14: 34 And when they were gone over, they came into the land of Gennesaret.
MAT 14: 35 And when the men of that place had knowledge of
him, they sent out into all that country round about, and brought unto
him all that were diseased;
MAT 14: 36 And besought him that they might only touch the
hem of his garment: and as many as touched were made perfectly whole.
MATTHEW CHAPTER 15
MAT 15: 1 Then came to Jesus scribes and Pharisees, which were of Jerusalem, saying,
MAT 15: 2 Why do thy disciples transgress the tradition of
the elders? for they wash not their hands when they eat bread.
MAT 15: 3 But he answered and said unto them, Why do ye also transgress the commandment of God by your tradition?
MAT 15: 4 For God commanded, saying, Honour thy father and
mother: and, He that curseth father or mother, let him die the death.
MAT 15: 5 But ye say, Whosoever shall say to his father or
his mother, It is a gift, by whatsoever thou mightest be profited by
MAT 15: 6 And honour not his father or his mother, he shall
be free. Thus have ye made the commandment of God of none effect by
MAT 15: 7 Ye hypocrites, well did Esaias prophesy of you, saying,
MAT 15: 8 This people draweth nigh unto me with their
mouth, and honoureth me with their lips; but their heart is far from
MAT 15: 9 But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.
MAT 15: 10 And he called the multitude, and said unto them, Hear, and understand:
MAT 15: 11 Not that which goeth into the mouth defileth a
man; but that which cometh out of the mouth, this defileth a man.
MAT 15: 12 Then came his disciples, and said unto him,
Knowest thou that the Pharisees were offended, after they heard this
MAT 15: 13 But he answered and said, Every plant, which my heavenly Father hath not planted, shall be rooted up.
MAT 15: 14 Let them alone: they be blind leaders of the
blind. And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch.
MAT 15: 15 Then answered Peter and said unto him, Declare unto us this parable.
MAT 15: 16 And Jesus said, Are ye also yet without understanding?
MAT 15: 17 Do not ye yet understand, that whatsoever
entereth in at the mouth goeth into the belly, and is cast out into the
MAT 15: 18 But those things which proceed out of the mouth come forth from the heart; and they defile the man.
MAT 15: 19 For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts,
murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, blasphemies:
MAT 15: 20 These are the things which defile a man: but to eat with unwashen hands defileth not a man.
MAT 15: 21 Then Jesus went thence, and departed into the coasts of Tyre and Sidon.
MAT 15: 22 And, behold, a woman of Canaan came out of the
same coasts, and cried unto him, saying, Have mercy on me, O Lord, thou
son of David; my daughter is grievously vexed with a devil.
MAT 15: 23 But he answered her not a word. And his
disciples came and besought him, saying, Send her away; for she crieth
MAT 15: 24 But he answered and said, I am not sent but unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel.
MAT 15: 25 Then came she and worshipped him, saying, Lord, help me.
MAT 15: 26 But he answered and said, It is not meet to take the children's bread, and to cast it to dogs.
MAT 15: 27 And she said, Truth, Lord: yet the dogs eat of the crumbs which fall from their masters' table.
MAT 15: 28 Then Jesus answered and said unto her, O woman,
great is thy faith: be it unto thee even as thou wilt. And her daughter
was made whole from that very hour.
MAT 15: 29 And Jesus departed from thence, and came nigh
unto the sea of Galilee; and went up into a mountain, and sat down
MAT 15: 30 And great multitudes came unto him, having with
them those that were lame, blind, dumb, maimed, and many others, and
cast them down at Jesus' feet; and he healed them:
MAT 15: 31 Insomuch that the multitude wondered, when they
saw the dumb to speak, the maimed to be whole, the lame to walk, and
the blind to see: and they glorified the God of Israel.
MAT 15: 32 Then Jesus called his disciples unto him, and
said, I have compassion on the multitude, because they continue with me
now three days, and have nothing to eat: and I will not send them away
fasting, lest they faint in the way.
MAT 15: 33 And his disciples say unto him, Whence should we
have so much bread in the wilderness, as to fill so great a multitude?
MAT 15: 34 And Jesus saith unto them, How many loaves have ye? And they said, Seven, and a few little fishes.
MAT 15: 35 And he commanded the multitude to sit down on the ground.
MAT 15: 36 And he took the seven loaves and the fishes, and
gave thanks, and brake them, and gave to his disciples, and the
disciples to the multitude.
MAT 15: 37 And they did all eat, and were filled: and they
took up of the broken meat that was left seven baskets full.
MAT 15: 38 And they that did eat were four thousand men, beside women and children.
MAT 15: 39 And he sent away the multitude, and took ship, and came into the coasts of Magdala.
MAT 16: 1 The Pharisees also with the Sadducees came, and
tempting desired him that he would shew them a sign from heaven.
MATTHEW CHAPTER 16
MAT 16: 2 He answered and said unto them, When it is evening, ye say, It will be fair weather: for the sky is red.
MAT 16: 3 And in the morning, It will be foul weather to
day: for the sky is red and lowering. O ye hypocrites, ye can discern
the face of the sky; but can ye not discern the signs of the times?
MAT 16: 4 A wicked and adulterous generation seeketh after
a sign; and there shall no sign be given unto it, but the sign of the
prophet Jonas. And he left them, and departed.
MAT 16: 5 And when his disciples were come to the other side, they had forgotten to take bread.
MAT 16: 6 Then Jesus said unto them, Take heed and beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and of the Sadducees.
MAT 16: 7 And they reasoned among themselves, saying, It is because we have taken no bread.
MAT 16: 8 Which when Jesus perceived, he said unto them, O
ye of little faith, why reason ye among yourselves, because ye have
brought no bread?
MAT 16: 9 Do ye not yet understand, neither remember the
five loaves of the five thousand, and how many baskets ye took up?
MAT 16: 10 Neither the seven loaves of the four thousand, and how many baskets ye took up?
MAT 16: 11 How is it that ye do not understand that I spake
it not to you concerning bread, that ye should beware of the leaven of
the Pharisees and of the Sadducees?
MAT 16: 12 Then understood they how that he bade them not beware
of the leaven of bread, but of the doctrine of the Pharisees and of the
MAT 16: 13 When Jesus came into the coasts of Caesarea
Philippi, he asked his disciples, saying, Whom do men say that I the
Son of man am?
MAT 16: 14 And they said, Some say that thou art John the
Baptist: some, Elias; and others, Jeremias, or one of the prophets.
MAT 16: 15 He saith unto them, But whom say ye that I am?
MAT 16: 16 And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God.
MAT 16: 17 And Jesus answered and said unto him, Blessed
art thou, Simon Barjona: for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto
thee, but my Father which is in heaven.
MAT 16: 18 And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter,
and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall
not prevail against it.
MAT 16: 19 And I will give unto thee the keys of the
kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be
bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be
loosed in heaven.
MAT 16: 20 Then charged he his disciples that they should tell no man that he was Jesus the Christ.
MAT 16: 21 From that time forth began Jesus to shew unto
his disciples, how that he must go unto Jerusalem, and suffer many
things of the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be killed, and
be raised again the third day.
MAT 16: 22 Then Peter took him, and began to rebuke him,
saying, Be it far from thee, Lord: this shall not be unto thee.
MAT 16: 23 But he turned, and said unto Peter, Get thee
behind me, Satan: thou art an offence unto me: for thou savourest not
the things that be of God, but those that be of men.
MAT 16: 24 Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man
will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and
MAT 16: 25 For whosoever will save his life shall lose it:
and whosoever will lose his life for my sake shall find it.
MAT 16: 26 For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the
whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in
exchange for his soul?
MAT 16: 27 For the Son of man shall come in the glory of
his Father with his angels; and then he shall reward every man
according to his works.
MAT 16: 28 Verily I say unto you, There be some standing
here, which shall not taste of death, till they see the Son of man
coming in his kingdom.
MATTHEW CHAPTER 17
MAT 17: 1 And after six days Jesus taketh Peter, James, and
John his brother, and bringeth them up into an high mountain apart,
MAT 17: 2 And was transfigured before them: and his face
did shine as the sun, and his raiment was white as the light.
MAT 17: 3 And, behold, there appeared unto them Moses and Elias talking with him.
MAT 17: 4 Then answered Peter, and said unto Jesus, Lord,
it is good for us to be here: if thou wilt, let us make here three
tabernacles; one for thee, and one for Moses, and one for Elias.
MAT 17: 5 While he yet spake, behold, a bright cloud
overshadowed them: and behold a voice out of the cloud, which said,
This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased; hear ye him.
MAT 17: 6 And when the disciples heard it, they fell on their face, and were sore afraid.
MAT 17: 7 And Jesus came and touched them, and said, Arise, and be not afraid.
MAT 17: 8 And when they had lifted up their eyes, they saw no man, save Jesus only.
MAT 17: 9 And as they came down from the mountain, Jesus
charged them, saying, Tell the vision to no man, until the Son of man
be risen again from the dead.
MAT 17: 10 And his disciples asked him, saying, Why then say the scribes that Elias must first come?
MAT 17: 11 And Jesus answered and said unto them, Elias truly shall first come, and restore all things.
MAT 17: 12 But I say unto you, That Elias is come already,
and they knew him not, but have done unto him whatsoever they listed.
Likewise shall also the Son of man suffer of them.
MAT 17: 13 Then the disciples understood that he spake unto them of John the Baptist.
MAT 17: 14 And when they were come to the multitude, there
came to him a certain man, kneeling down to him, and saying,
MAT 17: 15 Lord, have mercy on my son: for he is lunatick,
and sore vexed: for ofttimes he falleth into the fire, and oft into the
MAT 17: 16 And I brought him to thy disciples, and they could not cure him.
MAT 17: 17 Then Jesus answered and said, O faithless and
perverse generation, how long shall I be with you? how long shall I
suffer you? bring him hither to me.
MAT 17: 18 And Jesus rebuked the devil; and he departed out of him: and the child was cured from that very hour.
MAT 17: 19 Then came the disciples to Jesus apart, and said, Why could not we cast him out?
MAT 17: 20 And Jesus said unto them, Because of your
unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of
mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder
place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you.
MAT 17: 21 Howbeit this kind goeth not out but by prayer and fasting.
MAT 17: 22 And while they abode in Galilee, Jesus said unto
them, The Son of man shall be betrayed into the hands of men: MAT
And they shall kill him, and the third day he shall be raised again. And they were exceeding sorry.
MAT 17: 24 And when they were come to Capernaum, they that
received tribute money came to Peter, and said, Doth not your master
MAT 17: 25 He saith, Yes. And when he was come into the
house, Jesus prevented him, saying, What thinkest thou, Simon? of whom
do the kings of the earth take custom or tribute? of their own
children, or of strangers?
MAT 17: 26 Peter saith unto him, Of strangers. Jesus saith unto him, Then are the children free.
MAT 17: 27 Notwithstanding, lest we should offend them, go
thou to the sea, and cast an hook, and take up the fish that first
cometh up; and when thou hast opened his mouth, thou shalt find a piece
of money: that take, and give unto them for me and thee.
MATTHEW CHAPTER 18
MAT 18: 1 At the same time came the disciples unto Jesus, saying, Who is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven?
MAT 18: 2 And Jesus called a little child unto him, and set him in the midst of them,
MAT 18: 3 And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be
converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the
kingdom of heaven.
MAT 18: 4 hosoever therefore shall humble himself as this
little child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven.
MAT 18: 5 And whoso shall receive one such little child in my name receiveth me.
MAT 18: 6 But whoso shall offend one of these little ones
which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were
hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the
MAT 18: 7 Woe unto the world because of offences! for it
must needs be that offences come; but woe to that man by whom the
MAT 18: 8 Wherefore if thy hand or thy foot offend thee,
cut them off, and cast them from thee: it is better for thee to enter
into life halt or maimed, rather than having two hands or two feet to
be cast into everlasting fire.
MAT 18: 9 And if thine eye offend thee, pluck it out, and
cast it from thee: it is better for thee to enter into life with one
eye, rather than having two eyes to be cast into hell fire.
MAT 18: 10 Take heed that ye despise not one of these
little ones; for I say unto you, That in heaven their angels do always
behold the face of my Father which is in heaven.
MAT 18: 11 For the Son of man is come to save that which was lost.
MAT 18: 12 How think ye? if a man have an hundred sheep, and one
of them be gone astray, doth he not leave the ninety and nine, and
goeth into the mountains, and seeketh that which is gone astray?
MAT 18: 13 And if so be that he find it, verily I say unto
you, he rejoiceth more of that sheep, than of the ninety and nine which
went not astray.
MAT 18: 14 Even so it is not the will of your Father which
is in heaven, that one of these little ones should perish.
MAT 18: 15 Moreover if thy brother shall trespass against
thee, go and tell him his fault between thee and him alone: if he shall
hear thee, thou hast gained thy brother.
MAT 18: 16 But if he will not hear thee, then take with
thee one or two more, that in the mouth of two or three witnesses every
word may be established.
MAT 18: 17 And if he shall neglect to hear them, tell it unto the
church: but if he neglect to hear the church, let him be unto thee as
an heathen man and a publican.
MAT 18: 18 Verily I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall bind
on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever ye shall loose on
earth shall be loosed in heaven.
MAT 18: 19 Again I say unto you, That if two of you shall agree
on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done
for them of my Father which is in heaven.
MAT 18: 20 For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.
MAT 18: 21 Then came Peter to him, and said, Lord, how oft
shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? till seven times?
MAT 18: 22 Jesus saith unto him, I say not unto thee, Until seven times: but, Until seventy times seven.
MAT 18: 23 Therefore is the kingdom of heaven likened unto
a certain king, which would take account of his servants.
MAT 18: 24 And when he had begun to reckon, one was brought unto him, which owed him ten thousand talents.
MAT 18: 25 But forasmuch as he had not to pay, his lord
commanded him to be sold, and his wife, and children, and all that he
had, and payment to be made.
MATTHEW CHAPTER 19
MAT 19: 4 And he answered and said unto them, Have ye not
read, that he which made them at the beginning made them male and
MAT 19: 5 And said, For this cause shall a man leave father
and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they twain shall be one
MAT 19: 6 Wherefore they are no more twain, but one flesh.
What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder.
MAT 19: 7 They say unto him, Why did Moses then command to give a writing of divorcement, and to put her away?
MAT 19: 8 He saith unto them, Moses because of the hardness
of your hearts suffered you to put away your wives: but from the
beginning it was not so.
MAT 19: 9 And I say unto you, Whosoever shall put away his
wife, except it be for fornication, and shall marry another, committeth
adultery: and whoso marrieth her which is put away doth commit
MAT 19: 10 His disciples say unto him, If the case of the man be so with his wife, it is not good to marry.
MAT 19: 11 But he said unto them, All men cannot receive this saying, save they to whom it is given.
MAT 19: 12 For there are some eunuchs, which were so born
from their mother's womb: and there are some eunuchs, which were made
eunuchs of men: and there be eunuchs, which have made themselves
eunuchs for the kingdom of heaven's sake. He that is able to receive
it, let him receive it.
MAT 19: 13 Then were there brought unto him little
children, that he should put his hands on them, and pray: and the
disciples rebuked them.
MAT 19: 14 But Jesus said, Suffer little children, and
forbid them not, to come unto me: for of such is the kingdom of heaven.
MAT 19: 15 And he laid his hands on them, and departed thence.
MAT 19: 16 And, behold, one came and said unto him, Good
Master, what good thing shall I do, that I may have eternal life?
MAT 19: 17 And he said unto him, Why callest thou me good?
there is none good but one, that is, God: but if thou wilt enter into
life,keep the commandments.
MAT 19: 18 He saith unto him, Which? Jesus said, Thou shalt
do no murder, Thou shalt not commit adultery, Thou shalt not steal,
Thoushalt not bear false witness,
MAT 19: 19 Honour thy father and thy mother: and, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.
MAT 19: 20 The young man saith unto him, All these things have I kept from my youth up: what lack I yet?
MAT 19: 21 Jesus said unto him, If thou wilt be perfect, go
and sell that thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have
treasurein heaven: and come and follow me.
MAT 19: 22 But when the young man heard that saying, he went away sorrowful: for he had great possessions.
MAT 19: 23 Then said Jesus unto his disciples, Verily I say
unto you, That a rich man shall hardly enter into the kingdom of
MAT 19: 24 And again I say unto you, It is easier for a
camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter
into the kingdom of God.
MAT 19: 25 When his disciples heard it, they were exceedingly amazed, saying, Who then can be saved?
MAT 19: 26 But Jesus beheld them, and said unto them, With
men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible.
MAT 19: 27 Then answered Peter and said unto him, Behold,
we have forsaken all, and followed thee; what shall we have therefore?
MAT 19: 28 And Jesus said unto them, Verily I say unto you,
That ye which have followed me, in the regeneration when the Son of man
shall sit in the throne of his glory, ye also shall sit upon twelve
thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel.
MAT 19: 29 And every one that hath forsaken houses, or
brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or
lands, for my name's sake, shall receive an hundredfold, and shall
inherit everlasting life.
MAT 19: 30 But many that are first shall be last; and the last shall be first.
20: 1 For the kingdom of heaven is like unto a man that is an
householder, which went out early in the morning to hire labourers into
MATTHEW CHAPTER 20
MAT 20: 2 And when he had agreed with the labourers for a penny a day, he sent them into his vineyard.
MAT 20: 3 And he went out about the third hour, and saw others standing idle in the marketplace,
MAT 20: 4 And said unto them; Go ye also into the vineyard,
and whatsoever is right I will give you. And they went their way.
MAT 20: 5 Again he went out about the sixth and ninth hour, and did likewise.
MAT 20: 6 And about the eleventh hour he went out, and
found others standing idle, and saith unto them, Why stand ye here all
the day idle?
MAT 20: 7 They say unto him, Because no man hath hired us.
He saith unto them, Go ye also into the vineyard; and whatsoever is
right, that shall ye receive.
MAT 20: 8 So when even was come, the lord of the vineyard
saith unto his steward, Call the labourers, and give them their
hire,beginning from the last unto the first.
MAT 20: 9 And when they came that were hired about the eleventh hour, they received every man a penny.
MAT 20: 10 But when the first came, they supposed that they
should have received more; and they likewise received every man a
MAT 20: 11 And when they had received it, they murmured against the goodman of the house,
MAT 20: 12 Saying, These last have wrought but one hour,
and thou hast made them equal unto us, which have borne the burden and
heat of the day.
MAT 20: 13 But he answered one of them, and said, Friend, I
do thee no wrong: didst not thou agree with me for a penny?
MAT 20: 14 Take that thine is, and go thy way: I will give unto this last, even as unto thee.
MAT 20: 15 Is it not lawful for me to do what I will with mine own? Is thine eye evil, because I am good?
MAT 20: 16 So the last shall be first, and the first last: for many be called, but few chosen.
MAT 20: 17 And Jesus going up to Jerusalem took the twelve disciples apart in the way, and said unto them,
MAT 20: 18 Behold, we go up to Jerusalem; and the Son of
man shall be betrayed unto the chief priests and unto the scribes, and
theyshall condemn him to death,
MAT 20: 19 And shall deliver him to the Gentiles to mock,
and to scourge, and to crucify him: and the third day he shall rise
MAT 20: 20 Then came to him the mother of Zebedees children
with her sons, worshipping him, and desiring a certain thing of him.
MAT 20: 21 And he said unto her, What wilt thou? She saith
unto him, Grant that these my two sons may sit, the one on thy right
hand, and the other on the left, in thy kingdom.
MAT 20: 22 But Jesus answered and said, Ye know not what ye
ask. Are ye able to drink of the cup that I shall drink of, and to be
baptized with the baptism that I am baptized with? They say unto him,
We are able.
MAT 20: 23 And he saith unto them, Ye shall drink indeed of
my cup, and be baptized with the baptism that I am baptized with: but
to sit on my right hand, and on my left, is not mine to give, but it
shall be given to them for whom it is prepared of my Father.
MAT 20: 24 And when the ten heard it, they were moved with indignation against the two brethren.
MAT 20: 25 But Jesus called them unto him, and said, Ye
know that the princes of the Gentiles exercise dominion over them, and
they that are great exercise authority upon them.
MAT 20: 26 But it shall not be so among you: but whosoever
will be great among you, let him be your minister; MAT 20:
And whosoever will be chief among you, let him be your servant: MAT 20: 28
Even as the Son of man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give his life a ransom for many.
MAT 20: 29 And as they departed from Jericho, a great multitude followed him.
MAT 20: 30 And, behold, two blind men sitting by the way
side, when they heard that Jesus passed by, cried out, saying, Have
mercy on us, O Lord, thou son of David.
MAT 20: 31 And the multitude rebuked them, because they
should hold their peace: but they cried the more, saying, Have mercy on
us, O Lord, thou son of David.
MAT 20: 32 And Jesus stood still, and called them, and said, What will ye that I shall do unto you?
MAT 20: 33 They say unto him, Lord, that our eyes may be opened.
MAT 20: 34 So Jesus had compassion on them, and touched
their eyes: and immediately their eyes received sight, and they
MAT 21: 1 And when they drew nigh unto Jerusalem, and were
come to Bethphage, unto the mount of Olives, then sent Jesus two
MAT 21: 2 Saying unto them, Go into the village over
against you, and straightway ye shall find an ass tied, and a colt with
her: loose them, and bring them unto me.
MAT 21: 3 And if any man say ought unto you, ye shall say,
The Lord hath need of them; and straightway he will send them.
MAT 21: 4 All this was done, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, saying,
MAT 21: 5 Tell ye the daughter of Sion, Behold, thy King
cometh unto thee, meek, and sitting upon an ass, and a colt the foal of
MAT 21: 6 And the disciples went, and did as Jesus commanded them,
MAT 21: 12 And Jesus went into the temple of God, and cast
out all them that sold and bought in the temple, and overthrew the
tables of the moneychangers, and the seats of them that sold doves,
MAT 21: 13 And said unto them, It is written, My house
shall be called the house of prayer; but ye have made it a den of
MAT 21: 14 And the blind and the lame came to him in the temple; and he healed them.
MAT 21: 15 And when the chief priests and scribes saw the
wonderful things that he did, and the children crying in the temple,
and saying, Hosanna to the son of David; they were sore displeased,
MAT 21: 16 And said unto him, Hearest thou what these say?
And Jesus saith unto them, Yea; have ye never read, Out of the mouth of
babes and sucklings thou hast perfected praise?
MAT 21: 18 Now in the morning as he returned into the city, he hungered.
MAT 21: 19 And when he saw a fig tree in the way, he came
to it, and found nothing thereon, but leaves only, and said unto it,
Let no fruit grow on thee henceforward for ever. And presently the fig
tree withered away.
MAT 21: 20 And when the disciples saw it, they marvelled, saying, How soon is the fig tree withered away!
MAT 21: 21 Jesus answered and said unto them, Verily I say
unto you, If ye have faith, and doubt not, ye shall not only do this
which is done to the fig tree, but also if ye shall say unto this
mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; it shall be
MAT 21: 22 And all things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive.
MAT 21: 23 said, By what authority doest thou these things? and who gave thee this authority?
MAT 21: 24 And Jesus answered and said unto them, I also
will ask you one thing, which if ye tell me, I in like wise will tell
you by what authority I do these things.
MAT 21: 25 The baptism of John, whence was it? from heaven,
or of men? And they reasoned with themselves, saying, If we shall say,
From heaven; he will say unto us, Why did ye not then believe him?
MAT 21: 26 But if we shall say, Of men; we fear the people; for all hold John as a prophet.
MAT 21: 27 And they answered Jesus, and said, We cannot
tell. And he said unto them, Neither tell I you by what authority I do
MAT 21: 28 But what think ye? A certain man had two sons;
and he came to the first, and said, Son, go work to day in my vineyard.
MAT 21: 29 He answered and said, I will not: but afterward he repented, and went.
MAT 21: 30 And he came to the second, and said likewise. And he answered and said, I go, sir: and went not.
MAT 21: 31 Whether of them twain did the will of his
father? They say unto him, The first. Jesus saith unto them, Verily I
say unto you, That the publicans and the harlots go into the kingdom of
God before you.
MAT 21: 32 For John came unto you in the way of
righteousness, and ye believed him not: but the publicans and the
harlots believed him: and ye, when ye had seen it, repented not
afterward, that ye might believe him.
MAT 21: 33 Hear another parable: There was a certain
householder, which planted a vineyard, and hedged it round about, and
digged a winepress in it, and built a tower, and let it out to
husbandmen, and went into a far country:
MAT 21: 34 And when the time of the fruit drew near, he
sent his servants to the husbandmen, that they might receive the fruits
MAT 21: 35 And the husbandmen took his servants, and beat one, and killed another, and stoned another.
MAT 21: 36 Again, he sent other servants more than the first: and they did unto them likewise.
MAT 21: 37 But last of all he sent unto them his son, saying, They will reverence my son.
MAT 21: 38 But when the husbandmen saw the son, they said
among themselves, This is the heir; come, let us kill him, and let us
seize on his inheritance.
MAT 21: 39 And they caught him, and cast him out of the vineyard, and slew him.
MAT 21: 40 When the lord therefore of the vineyard cometh, what will he do unto those husbandmen?
MAT 21: 41 They say unto him, He will miserably destroy
those wicked men, and will let out his vineyard unto other husbandmen,
which shall render him the fruits in their seasons.
MAT 21: 42 Jesus saith unto them, Did ye never read in the
scriptures, The stone which the builders rejected, the same is become
the head of the corner: this is the Lord's doing, and it is marvellous
in our eyes?
MAT 21: 43 Therefore say I unto you, The kingdom of God
shall be taken from you, and given to a nation bringing forth the
fruits thereof. Note: this means that 'Christianity' shall be brought to the Gentiles, because the Jews largely rejected it.
MAT 21: 44 And whosoever shall fall on this stone shall be
broken: but on whomsoever it shall fall, it will grind him to powder.
MAT 22: 1 And Jesus answered and spake unto them again by parables, and said,
MAT 22: 2 The kingdom of heaven is like unto a certain king, which made a marriage for his son,
MAT 22: 3 And sent forth his servants to call them that were bidden to the wedding: and they would not come.
MAT 22: 4 Again, he sent forth other servants, saying, Tell
them which are bidden, Behold, I have prepared my dinner: my oxen and
my fatlings are killed, and all things are ready: come unto the
MAT 22: 5 But they made light of it, and went their ways, one to his farm, another to his merchandise:
MAT 22: 6 And the remnant took his servants, and entreated them spitefully, and slew them.
MAT 22: 7 But when the king heard thereof, he was wroth:
and he sent forth his armies, and destroyed those murderers, and burned
up their city.
MAT 22: 8 Then saith he to his servants, The wedding is ready, but they which were bidden were not worthy.
MAT 22: 9 Go ye therefore into the highways, and as many as ye shall find, bid to the marriage.
MAT 22: 10 So those servants went out into the highways,
and gathered together all as many as they found, both bad and good: and
the wedding was furnished with guests.
MAT 22: 11 And when the king came in to see the guests, he saw there a man which had not on a wedding garment:
MAT 22: 12 And he saith unto him, Friend, how camest thou
in hither not having a wedding garment? And he was speechless.
MAT 22: 13 Then said the king to the servants, Bind him
hand and foot, and take him away, and cast him into outer darkness,
there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
MAT 22: 14 For many are called, but few are chosen.
MAT 22: 15 Then went the Pharisees, and took counsel how they might entangle him in his talk.
MAT 22: 16 And they sent out unto him their disciples with
the Herodians, saying, Master, we know that thou art true, and teachest
the way of God in truth, neither carest thou for any man: for thou
regardest not the person of men.
MAT 22: 17 Tell us therefore, What thinkest thou? Is it lawful to give tribute unto Caesar, or not?
MAT 22: 18 But Jesus perceived their wickedness, and said, Why tempt ye me, ye hypocrites?
MAT 22: 19 Shew me the tribute money. And they brought unto him a penny.
MAT 22: 20
And he saith unto them, Whose is this image and superscription? MAT 22: 21
They say unto him, Caesar's. Then saith he unto them, Render therefore
unto Caesar the things which are Caesar's; and unto God the things that
MAT 22: 22 When they had heard these words, they marvelled, and left him, and went their way.
MAT 22: 23 The same day came to him the Sadducees, which say that there is no resurrection, and asked him,
MAT 22: 24 Saying, Master, Moses said, If a man die, having
no children, his brother shall marry his wife, and raise up seed unto
MAT 22: 25 Now there were with us seven brethren: and the
first, when he had married a wife, deceased, and, having no issue, left
his wife unto his brother:
MAT 22: 26 Likewise the second also, and the third, unto the seventh.
MAT 22: 27 And last of all the woman died also.
MAT 22: 28 Therefore in the resurrection whose wife shall she be of the seven? for they all had her.
MAT 22: 29 Jesus answered and said unto them, Ye do err, not knowing the scriptures, nor the power of God.
MAT 22: 30 For in the resurrection they neither marry, nor
are given in marriage, but are as the angels of God in heaven.
MAT 22: 31 But as touching the resurrection of the dead,
have ye not read that which was spoken unto you by God, saying,
MAT 22: 32 I am the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac,
and the God of Jacob? God is not the God of the dead, but of the
MAT 22: 33 And when the multitude heard this, they were astonished at his doctrine.
MAT 22: 34 But when the Pharisees had heard that he had put the Sadducees to silence, they were gathered together.
MAT 22: 35 Then one of them, which was a lawyer, asked him a question, tempting him, and saying,
MAT 22: 36 Master, which is the great commandment in the law?
MAT 22: 37 Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord
thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy
MAT 22: 38 This is the first and great commandment.
MAT 22: 39 And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.
MAT 22: 40 On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.
MAT 22: 41 While the Pharisees were gathered together, Jesus asked them,
MAT 22: 42 Saying, What think ye of Christ? whose son is he? They say unto him, The son of David.
MAT 22: 43 He saith unto them, How then doth David in spirit call him Lord, saying,
MAT 22: 44 The LORD said unto my Lord, Sit thou on my right hand, till I make thine enemies thy footstool?
MAT 22: 45 If David then call him Lord, how is he his son?
MAT 22: 46 And no man was able to answer him a word,
neither durst any man from that day forth ask him any more
MATTHEW CHAPTER 23
MAT 23: 1 Then spake Jesus to the multitude, and to his disciples,
MAT 23: 2 Saying The scribes and the Pharisees sit in Moses' seat:
MAT 23: 3 All therefore whatsoever they bid you observe,
that observe and do; but do not ye after their works: for they say, and
MAT 23: 4 For they bind heavy burdens and grievous to be
borne, and lay them on men's shoulders; but they themselves will not
move them with one of their fingers.
MAT 23: 5 But all their works they do for to be seen of
men: they make broad their phylacteries, and enlarge the borders of
MAT 23: 6 And love the uppermost rooms at feasts, and the chief seats in the synagogues,
MAT 23: 7 And greetings in the markets, and to be called of men, Rabbi, Rabbi.
MAT 23: 8 But be not ye called Rabbi: for one is your Master, even Christ; and all ye are brethren.
MAT 23: 9 And call no man your father upon the earth: for one is your Father, which is in heaven.
MAT 23: 10 Neither be ye called masters: for one is your Master, even Christ.
MAT 23: 11 But he that is greatest among you shall be your servant.
MAT 23: 12 And whosoever shall exalt himself shall be abased; and he that shall humble himself shall be exalted.
MAT 23: 13 But woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites!
for ye shut up the kingdom of heaven against men: for ye neither go in
yourselves, neither suffer ye them that are entering to go in.
MAT 23: 14 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites!
for ye devour widows' houses, and for a pretence make long prayer:
therefore ye shall receive the greater damnation.
MAT 23: 15 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites!
for ye compass sea and land to make one proselyte, and when he is made,
ye make him twofold more the child of hell than yourselves.
MAT 23: 16 Woe unto you, ye blind guides, which say,
Whosoever shall swear by the temple, it is nothing; but whosoever shall
swear by the gold of the temple, he is a debtor!
MAT 23: 17 Ye fools and blind: for whether is greater, the gold, or the temple that sanctifieth the gold?
MAT 23: 18 And, Whosoever shall swear by the altar, it is
nothing; but whosoever sweareth by the gift that is upon it, he is
MAT 23: 19 Ye fools and blind: for whether is greater, the gift, or the altar that sanctifieth the gift?
MAT 23: 20 Whoso therefore shall swear by the altar, sweareth by it, and by all things thereon.
MAT 23: 21 And whoso shall swear by the temple, sweareth by it, and by him that dwelleth therein.
MAT 23: 22 And he that shall swear by heaven, sweareth by the throne of God, and by him that sitteth thereon.
MAT 23: 23 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites!
for ye pay tithe of mint and anise and cummin, and have omitted the
weightier matters of the law, judgment, mercy, and faith: these ought
ye to have done, and not to leave the other undone.
MAT 23: 24 Ye blind guides, which strain at a gnat, and swallow a camel.
MAT 23: 25 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites!
for ye make clean the outside of the cup and of the platter, but within
they are full of extortion and excess.
MAT 23: 26 Thou blind Pharisee, cleanse first that which is
within the cup and platter, that the outside of them may be clean also.
MAT 23: 27 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites!
for ye are like unto whited sepulchres, which indeed appear beautiful
outward, but are within full of dead men's bones, and of all
MAT 23: 28 Even so ye also outwardly appear righteous unto men, but within ye are full of hypocrisy and iniquity.
MAT 23: 29 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites!
because ye build the tombs of the prophets, and garnish the sepulchres
of the righteous,
MAT 23: 30 And say, If we had been in the days of our
fathers, we would not have been partakers with them in the blood of the
MAT 23: 31 Wherefore ye be witnesses unto yourselves, that ye are the children of them which killed the prophets.
MAT 23: 32 Fill ye up then the measure of your fathers.
MAT 23: 33 Ye serpents, ye generation of vipers, how can ye escape the damnation of hell?
MAT 23: 34 Wherefore, behold, I send unto you prophets, and
wise men, and scribes: and some of them ye shall kill and crucify; and
some of them shall ye scourge in your synagogues, and persecute them
from city to city:
MAT 23: 35 That upon you may come all the righteous blood
shed upon the earth, from the blood of righteous Abel unto the blood of
Zacharias son of Barachias, whom ye slew between the temple and the
MAT 23: 36 Verily I say unto you, All these things shall come upon this generation.
MAT 23: 37 O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, thou that killest the
prophets, and stonest them which are sent unto thee, how often would I
have gathered thy children together, even as a hen gathereth her
chickens under her wings, and ye would not!
MAT 23: 38 Behold, your house is left unto you desolate.
MAT 23: 39 For I say unto you, Ye shall not see me
henceforth, till ye shall say, Blessed is he that cometh in the name of
24: 1 And Jesus went out, and departed from the temple: and his
disciples came to him for to shew him the buildings of the temple.
MAT 24: 2 And Jesus said unto them, See ye not all these
things? verily I say unto you, There shall not be left here one stone
upon another, that shall not be thrown down.
MAT 24: 3 And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the
disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these
things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of
MAT 24: 4 And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you.
MAT 24: 5 For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.
MAT 24: 6 And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars:
see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass,
but the end is not yet.
MAT 24: 7 For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom
against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and
earthquakes, in divers places.
MAT 24: 8 All these are the beginning of sorrows.
MAT 24: 9 Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted,
and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name's
MAT 24: 10 And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another.
MAT 24: 11 And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many.
MAT 24: 12 And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.
MAT 24: 13 But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.
MAT 24: 14 And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached
in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end
MAT 24: 15 When ye therefore shall see the abomination of
desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place,
(whoso readeth, let him understand:)
MAT 24: 16 Then let them which be in Judaea flee into the mountains:
MAT 24: 17 Let him which is on the housetop not come down to take any thing out of his house:
MAT 24: 18 Neither let him which is in the field return back to take his clothes.
MAT 24: 19 And woe unto them that are with child, and to them that give suck in those days!
MAT 24: 20 But pray ye that your flight be not in the winter, neither on the sabbath day:
MAT 24: 21 For then shall be great tribulation, such as was
not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall
MAT 24: 22 And except those days should be shortened, there
should no flesh be saved: but for the elect's sake those days shall be
MAT 24: 23 Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or there; believe it not.
MAT 24: 24 For there shall arise false Christs, and false
prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it
were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.
MAT 24: 25 Behold, I have told you before.
MAT 24: 26 Wherefore if they shall say unto you, Behold, he is in
the desert; go not forth: behold, he is in the secret chambers; believe
MAT 24: 27 For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and
shineth even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man
MAT 24: 28 For wheresoever the carcase is, there will the eagles be gathered together.
MAT 24: 29 Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall
the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the
stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be
MAT 24: 30 And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in
heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they
shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and
MAT 24: 31 And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a
trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds,
from one end of heaven to the other.
MAT 24: 32 Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch
is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is nigh:
MAT 24: 33 So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors.
MAT 24: 34 Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled.
MAT 24: 35 Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.
MAT 24: 36 But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.
MAT 24: 37 But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
AT 24: 38 For as in the days that were before the flood they were
eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day
that Noe entered into the ark,
MAT 24: 39 And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
MAT 24: 40 Then shall two be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left.
MAT 24: 41 Two women shall be grinding at the mill; the one shall be taken, and the other left.
MAT 24: 42 Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come.
MAT 24: 43 But know this, that if the goodman of the house had
known in what watch the thief would come, he would have watched, and
would not have suffered his house to be broken up.
MAT 24: 44 Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh.
MAT 24: 45 Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom his lord
hath made ruler over his household, to give them meat in due season?
MAT 24: 46 Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he cometh shall find so doing.
MAT 24: 47 Verily I say unto you, That he shall make him ruler over all his goods.
MAT 24: 48
But and if that evil servant shall say in his heart, My lord delayeth his coming;
MAT 24: 49 And shall begin to smite his fellowservants, and to eat and drink with the drunken;
MAT 24: 50 The lord of that servant shall come in a day when he
looketh not for him, and in an hour that he is not aware of,
MAT 24: 51 And shall cut him asunder, and appoint him his portion
with the hypocrites: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
25: 1 Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins,
which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom.
MAT 25: 2 And five of them were wise, and five were foolish.
MAT 25: 3 They that were foolish took their lamps, and took no oil with them:
MAT 25: 4 But the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps.
MAT 25: 5 While the bridegroom tarried, they all slumbered and slept.
MAT 25: 6 And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him.
MAT 25: 7 Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps.
MAT 25: 8 And the foolish said unto the wise, Give us of your oil; for our lamps are gone out.
MAT 25: 9 But the wise answered, saying, Not so; lest there be
not enough for us and you: but go ye rather to them that sell, and buy
MAT 25: 10 And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came; and
they that were ready went in with him to the marriage: and the door was
MAT 25: 11 Afterward came also the other virgins, saying, Lord, Lord, open to us.
MAT 25: 12 But he answered and said, Verily I say unto you, I know you not.
MAT 25: 13 Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh.
MAT 25: 14 For the kingdom of heaven is as a man travelling into
a far country, who called his own servants, and delivered unto them his
MAT 25: 15 And unto one he gave five talents, to another two, and
to another one; to every man according to his several ability; and
straightway took his journey.
MAT 25: 16 Then he that had received the five talents went and traded with the same, and made them other five talents.
MAT 25: 17 And likewise he that had received two, he also gained other two.
MAT 25: 18 But he that had received one went and digged in the earth, and hid his lord's money.
MAT 25: 19 After a long time the lord of those servants cometh, and reckoneth with them.
MAT 25: 20 And so he that had received five talents came and
brought other five talents, saying, Lord, thou deliveredst unto me five
talents: behold, I have gained beside them five talents more.
MAT 25: 21 His lord said unto him, Well done, thou good and
faithful servant: thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will
make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord.
MAT 25: 22 He also that had received two talents came and said,
Lord, thou deliveredst unto me two talents: behold, I have gained two
other talents beside them.
MAT 25: 23 His lord said unto him, Well done, good and faithful
servant; thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee
ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord.
MAT 25: 24 Then he which had received the one talent came and
said, Lord, I knew thee that thou art an hard man, reaping where thou
hast not sown, and gathering where thou hast not strawed:
MAT 25: 25 And I was afraid, and went and hid thy talent in the earth: lo, there thou hast that is thine.
MAT 25: 26 His lord answered and said unto him, Thou wicked and
slothful servant, thou knewest that I reap where I sowed not, and
gather where I have not strawed:
MAT 25: 27 Thou oughtest therefore to have put my money to the
exchangers, and then at my coming I should have received mine own with
MAT 25: 28 Take therefore the talent from him, and give it unto him which hath ten talents.
MAT 25: 29 For unto every one that hath shall be given, and he
shall have abundance: but from him that hath not shall be taken away
even that which he hath.
MAT 25: 30 And cast ye the unprofitable servant into outer darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
MAT 25: 31 When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all
the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his
MAT 25: 32 And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he
shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep
from the goats:
MAT 25: 33 And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left.
MAT 25: 34 Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand,
Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you
from the foundation of the world:
MAT 25: 35 For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was
thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in:
MAT 25: 36 Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me.
MAT 25: 37 Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord,
when saw we thee an hungred, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee
MAT 25: 38 When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee?
MAT 25: 39 Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee?
MAT 25: 40 And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I
say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of
these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.
MAT 25: 41 Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand,
Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the
devil and his angels:
MAT 25: 42 For I was an hungred, and ye gave me no meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me no drink:
MAT 25: 43 I was a stranger, and ye took me not in: naked, and ye
clothed me not: sick, and in prison, and ye visited me not.
MAT 25: 44 Then shall they also answer him, saying, Lord, when
saw we thee an hungred, or athirst, or a stranger, or naked, or sick,
or in prison, and did not minister unto thee?
MAT 25: 45 Then shall he answer them, saying, Verily I say unto
you, Inasmuch as ye did it not to one of the least of these, ye did it
not to me.
MAT 25: 46 And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal.
