The Gospel of Mark
Chapter 1

MARK
Chapter 1
1 The beginning of the
gospel of Jesus Christ, the
Son of God.

2 Even as it is written in
Isaiah the prophet, Behold,
I send my messenger
before thy face, Who shall
prepare thy way.
3 The voice of one crying
in the wilderness, Make ye
ready the way of the Lord,
Make his paths straight;
4 John came, who
baptized in the wilderness
and preached the baptism
of repentance unto
remission of sins.
5 And there went out unto
him all the country of
Judaea, and all they of
Jerusalem; And they were
baptized of him in the river
Jordan, confessing their
sins.
6 And John was clothed
with camel’s hair, and had
a leathern girdle about his
loins, and did eat locusts
and wild honey.
7 And he preached,
saying, There cometh after
me he that is mightier than
I, the latchet of whose
shoes I am not worthy to
stoop down and unloose.
8 I baptized you in water;
But he shall baptize you in
the Holy Spirit.

9 And it came to pass in
those days, that Jesus
came from Nazareth of
Galilee, and was baptized
of John in the Jordan.
10 And straightway
coming up out of the
water, he saw the heavens
rent asunder, and the Spirit
as a dove descending upon
him:
11 And a voice came out
of the heavens, Thou art
my beloved Son, in thee I
am well pleased.

12 And straightway the
Spirit driveth him forth
into the wilderness.
13 And he was in the
wilderness forty days
tempted of Satan; And he
was with the wild beasts;
And the angels ministered
unto him.

14 Now after John was
delivered up, Jesus came
into Galilee, preaching the
gospel of God,
15 and saying, The time is
fulfilled, and the kingdom
of God is at hand: repent
ye, and believe in the
gospel.
16 And passing along by
the sea of Galilee, he saw
Simon and Andrew the
brother of Simon casting a
net in the sea; for they
were fishers.
17 And Jesus said unto
them, Come ye after me,
and I will make you to
become fishers of men.
18 And straightway they
left the nets, and followed
him.
19 And going on a little
further, he saw James the
son of Zebedee, and John
his brother, who also were
in the boat mending the
nets.
20 And straightway he
called them: and they left
their father Zebedee in the
boat with the hired
servants, and went after
him.

21 And they go into
Capernaum; and
straightway on the sabbath
day he entered into the
synagogue and taught.
22 And they were
astonished at his teaching:
For he taught them as
having authority, and not
as the scribes.
23 And straightway there
was in their synagogue a
man with an unclean spirit;
and he cried out,
24 saying, What have we
to do with thee, Jesus thou
Nazarene? art thou come
to destroy us? I know thee
who thou art, the Holy
One of God.
25 And Jesus rebuked
him, saying, Hold thy
peace, and come out of
him.
26 And the unclean spirit,
tearing him and crying
with a loud voice, came
out of him.
27 And they were all
amazed, insomuch that
they questioned among
themselves, saying, What
is this? a new teaching!
with authority he
commandeth even the
unclean spirits, and they
obey him.
28 And the report of him
went out straightway
everywhere into all the
region of Galilee round
about.

29 And straightway,
when they were come out
of the synagogue, they
came into the house of
Simon and Andrew, with
James and John.
30 Now Simon’s wife’s
mother lay sick of a fever;
and straightway they tell
him of her:
31 and he came and took
her by the hand, and raised
her up; and the fever left
her, and she ministered
unto them.
32 And at even, when the
sun did set, they brought
unto him all that were sick,
and them that were
possessed with demons.
33 And all the city was
gathered together at the
door.
34 And he healed many
that were sick with divers
diseases, and cast out
many demons; and he
suffered not the demons to
speak, because they knew
him.
35 And in the morning, a
great while before day, he
rose up and went out, and
departed into a desert
place, and there prayed.
36 And Simon and they
that were with him
followed after him;
37 and they found him,
and say unto him, All are
seeking thee.
38 And he saith unto
them, Let us go elsewhere
into the next towns, that I
may preach there also; for
to this end came I forth.
39 And he went into their
synagogues throughout all
Galilee, preaching and
casting out demons.

40 And there cometh to
him a leper, beseeching
him, and kneeling down to
him, and saying unto him,
If thou wilt, thou canst
make me clean.
41 And being moved with
compassion, he stretched
forth his hand, and touched
him, and saith unto him, I
will; be thou made clean.
42 And straightway the
leprosy departed from
him, and he was made
clean.
43 And he strictly charged
him, and straightway sent
him out,
44 and saith unto him, See
thou say nothing to any
man: but go show thyself
to the priest, and offer for
thy cleansing the things
which Moses commanded,
for a testimony unto them.
45 But he went out, and
began to publish it much,
and to spread abroad the
matter, insomuch that
Jesus could no more
openly enter into a city,
but was without in desert
places: and they came to
him from every quarter.

MATTHEW1:1

The book of the
generation of Jesus Christ,
the son of David, the son
of Abraham.
MATTHEW
Chapter 3

1 And in those days
cometh John the Baptist,
preaching in the wilderness
of Judaea, saying,
2 Repent ye; for the
kingdom of heaven is at
hand.
3 For this is he that was
spoken of through Isaiah
the prophet, saying, The
voice of one crying in the
wilderness, Make ye ready
the way of the Lord, make
his paths straight.
4 Now John himself had
his raiment of camel’s
hair, and a leathern girdle
about his loins; and his
food was locusts and wild
honey.
5 Then went out unto him
Jerusalem, and all Judaea,
and all the region round
about the Jordan;
6 and they were baptized
of him in the river Jordan,
confessing their sins.
7 But when he saw many
of the Pharisees and
Sadducees coming to his
baptism, he said unto
them, Ye offspring of
vipers, who warned you to
flee from the wrath to
come?
8 Bring forth therefore
fruit worthy of repentance:
9 and think not to say
within yourselves, We
have Abraham to our
father: for I say unto you,
that God is able of these
stones to raise up children
unto Abraham.
10 And even now the axe
lieth at the root of the
trees: every tree therefore
that bringeth not forth
good fruit is hewn down,
and cast into the fire.
11 I indeed baptize you in
water unto repentance: but
he that cometh after me is
mightier than I, whose
shoes I am not worthy to
bear: he shall baptize you
in the Holy Spirit and in
fire:
12 whose fan is in his
hand, and he will
thoroughly cleanse his
threshing-floor; and he will
gather his wheat into the
garner, but the chaff he
will burn up with
unquenchable fire.

MATTHEW
3:13

13 Then cometh Jesus
from Galilee to the Jordan
unto John, to be baptized
of him.
14 But John would have
hindered him, saying, I
have need to be baptized
of thee, and comest thou to
me?
15 But Jesus answering
said unto him, Suffer it
now: for thus it becometh
us to fulfil all
righteousness. Then he
suffereth him.
16 And Jesus when he
was baptized, went up
straightway from the
water: and lo, the heavens
were opened unto him, and
he saw the Spirit of God
descending as a dove, and
coming upon him;
17 and lo, a voice out of
the heavens, saying, This
is my beloved Son, in
whom I am well pleased.

MATTHEW
4:1

1 Then was Jesus led up
of the Spirit into the
wilderness to be tempted
of the devil.
2 And when he had fasted
forty days and forty nights,
he afterward hungered.
3 And the tempter came
and said unto him, If thou
art the Son of God,
command that these stones
become bread.
4 But he answered and
said, It is written, Man
shall not live by bread
alone, but by every word
that proceedeth out of the
mouth of God.
5 Then the devil taketh
him into the holy city; and
he set him on the pinnacle
of the temple,
6 and saith unto him, If
thou art the Son of God,
cast thyself down: for it is
written, He shall give his
angels charge concerning
thee: and, On their hands
they shall bear thee up, lest
haply thou dash thy foot
against a stone.
7 Jesus said unto him,
Again it is written, Thou
shalt not make trial of the
Lord thy God.
8 Again, the devil taketh
him unto an exceeding
high mountain, and
showeth him all the
kingdoms of the world,
and the glory of them;
9 and he said unto him,
All these things will I give
thee, if thou wilt fall down
and worship me.
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 serve.
11 Then the devil leaveth
him; and behold, angels
came and ministered unto
him.

MATTHEW
4:12

12 Now when he heard
that John was delivered
up, he withdrew into
Galilee;
13 and leaving Nazareth,
he came and dwelt in
Capernaum, which is by
the sea, in the borders of
Zebulun and Naphtali:
14 that it might be
fulfilled which was spoken
through Isaiah the prophet,
saying,
15 The land of Zebulun
and the land of Naphtali,
toward the sea, beyond the
Jordan, Galilee of the
Gentiles,
16 the people that sat in
darkness saw a great light,
and to them that sat in the
region and shadow of
death, to them did light
spring up.
17 From that time began
Jesus to preach, and to
say, Repent ye; for the
kingdom of heaven is at
hand.
18 And walking by the
sea of Galilee, he saw two
brethren, Simon who is
called Peter, and Andrew
his brother, casting a net
into the sea; for they were
fishers.
19 And he saith unto
them, Come ye after me,
and I will make you
fishers of men.
20 And they straightway
left the nets, and followed
him.
21 And going on from
thence he saw two other
brethren, James the son of
Zebedee, and John his
brother, in the boat with
Zebedee their father,
mending their nets; and he
called them.
22 And they straightway
left the boat and their
father, and followed him.

MATTHEW
8:14

14 And when Jesus was
come into Peter’s house,
he saw his wife’s mother
lying sick of a fever.
15 And he touched her
hand, and the fever left
her; and she arose, and
ministered unto him.
16 And when even was
come, they brought unto
him many possessed with
demons: and he cast out
the spirits with a word,
and healed all that were
sick:
17 that it might be
fulfilled which was spoken
through Isaiah the prophet,
saying: Himself took our
infirmities, and bare our
diseases.

MATTHEW
8:3

2 And behold, there came
to him a leper and
worshipped him, saying,
Lord, if thou wilt, thou
canst make me clean.
3 And he stretched forth
his hand, and touched him,
saying, I will; be thou
made clean. And
straightway his leprosy
was cleansed.
4 And Jesus saith unto
him, See thou tell no man;
but go, show thyself to the
priest, and offer the gift
that Moses commanded,
for a testimony unto them.

LUKELUKE
Chapter 3

1 Now in the fifteenth
year of the reign of
Tiberius Caesar, Pontius
Pilate being governor of
Judaea, and Herod being
tetrarch of Galilee, and his
brother Philip tetrarch of
the region of Ituraea and
Trachonitis, and Lysanias
tetrarch of Abilene,
2 in the high-priesthood of
Annas and Caiaphas, the
word of God came unto
John the son of Zacharias
in the wilderness.
3 And he came into all the
region round about the
Jordan, preaching the
baptism of repentance unto
remission of sins;
4 as it is written in the
book of the words of
Isaiah the prophet, The
voice of one crying in the
wilderness, Make ye ready
the way of the Lord, Make
his paths straight.
5 Every valley shall be
filled, And every mountain
and hill shall be brought
low; And the crooked shall
become straight, And the
rough ways smooth;
6 And all flesh shall see
the salvation of God.
7 He said therefore to the
multitudes that went out to
be baptized of him, Ye
offspring of vipers, who
warned you to flee from
the wrath to come?
8 Bring forth therefore
fruits worthy of
repentance, and begin not
to say within yourselves,
We have Abraham to our
father: for I say unto you,
that God is able of these
stones to raise up children
unto Abraham.
9 And even now the axe
also lieth at the root of the
trees: every tree therefore
that bringeth not forth
good fruit is hewn down,
and cast into the fire.
10 And the multitudes
asked him, saying, What
then must we do?
11 And he answered and
said unto them, He that
hath two coats, let him
impart to him that hath
none; and he that hath
food, let him do likewise.
12 And there came also
publicans to be baptized,
and they said unto him,
Teacher, what must we
do?
13 And he said unto them,
Extort no more than that
which is appointed you.
14 And soldiers also
asked him, saying, And
we, what must we do?
And he said unto them,
Extort from no man by
violence, neither accuse
any one wrongfully; and
be content with your
wages.
15 And as the people
were in expectation, and
all men reasoned in their
hearts concerning John,
whether haply he were the
Christ;
16 John answered, saying
unto them all, I indeed
baptize you with water;
but there cometh he that is
mightier than I, the latchet
of whose shoes I am not
worthy to unloose: he shall
baptize you in the Holy
Spirit and in fire:
17 whose fan is in his
hand, thoroughly to
cleanse his threshing-floor,
and to gather the wheat
into his garner; but the
chaff he will burn up with
unquenchable fire.
18 With many other
exhortations therefore
preached he good tidings
unto the people;
19 but Herod the tetrarch,
being reproved by him for
Herodias his brother’s
wife, and for all the evil
things which Herod had
done,
20 added this also to them
all, that he shut up John in
prison.

LUKE
3:21

21 Now it came to pass,
when all the people were
baptized, that, Jesus also
having been baptized, and
praying, the heaven was
opened,
22 and the Holy Spirit
descended in a bodily
form, as a dove, upon him,
and a voice came out of
heaven, Thou art my
beloved Son; in thee I am
well pleased.

LUKE
4:1

1 And Jesus, full of the
Holy Spirit, returned from
the Jordan, and was led in
the Spirit in the wilderness
2 during forty days, being
tempted of the devil. And
he did eat nothing in those
days: and when they were
completed, he hungered.
3 And the devil said unto
him, if thou art the Son of
God, command this stone
that it become bread.
4 And Jesus answered
unto him, It is written,
Man shall not live by bread
alone.
5 And he led him up, and
showed him all the
kingdoms of the world in a
moment of time.
6 And the devil said unto
him, To thee will I give all
this authority, and the
glory of them: for it hath
been delivered unto me;
and to whomsoever I will I
give it.
7 If thou therefore wilt
worship before me, it shall
all be thine.
8 And Jesus answered and
said unto him, It is written,
Thou shalt worship the
Lord thy God, and him
only shalt thou serve.
9 And he led him to
Jerusalem, and set him on
the pinnacle of the temple,
and said unto him, If thou
art the Son of God, cast
thyself down from hence:
10 for it is written, He
shall give his angels
charge concerning thee, to
guard thee:
11 and, On their hands
they shall bear thee up,
Lest haply thou dash thy
foot against a stone.
12 And Jesus answering
said unto him, It is said,
Thou shalt not make trial
of the Lord thy God.
13 And when the devil
had completed every
temptation, he departed
from him for a season.
14 And Jesus returned in
the power of the Spirit into
Galilee: and a fame went
out concerning him
through all the region
round about.
15 And he taught in their
synagogues, being
glorified of all.

LUKE
4:31

31 And he came down to
Capernaum, a city of
Galilee. And he was
teaching them on the
sabbath day:
32 and they were
astonished at his teaching;
for his word was with
authority.
33 And in the synagogue
there was a man, that had a
spirit of an unclean demon;
and he cried out with a
loud voice,
34 Ah! what have we to
do with thee, Jesus thou
Nazarene? art thou come
to destroy us? I know thee
who thou art, the Holy
One of God.
35 And Jesus rebuked
him, saying, Hold thy
peace, and come out of
him. And when the demon
had thrown him down in
the midst, he came out of
him, having done him no
hurt.
36 And amazement came
upon all, and they spake
together, one with another,
saying, What is this word?
for with authority and
power he commandeth the
unclean spirits, and they
come out.
37 And there went forth a
rumor concerning him into
every place of the region
round about.

LUKE 4:38

38 And he rose up from
the synagogue, and entered
into the house of Simon.
And Simon’s wife’s
mother was holden with a
great fever; and they
besought him for her.
39 And he stood over her,
and rebuked the fever; and
it left her: and immediately
she rose up and ministered
unto them.
40 And when the sun was
setting, all they that had
any sick with divers
diseases brought them unto
him; and he laid his hands
on every one of them, and
healed them.
41 And demons also came
out from many, crying out,
and saying, Thou art the
Son of God. And rebuking
them, he suffered them not
to speak, because they
knew that he was the
Christ.
42 And when it was day,
he came out and went into
a desert place: and the
multitudes sought after
him, and came unto him,
and would have stayed
him, that he should not go
from them.
43 But he said unto them,
I must preach the good
tidings of the kingdom of
God to the other cities
also: for therefore was I
sent.
44 And he was preaching
in the synagogues of
Galilee.

LUKE
5:12

12 And it came to pass,
while he was in one of the
cities, behold, a man full
of leprosy: and when he
saw Jesus, he fell on his
face, and besought him,
saying, Lord, if thou wilt,
thou canst make me clean.
13 And he stretched forth
his hand, and touched him,
saying, I will; be thou
made clean. And
straightway the leprosy
departed from him.
14 And he charged him to
tell no man: but go thy
way, and show thyself to
the priest, and offer for thy
cleansing, according as
Moses commanded, for a
testimony unto them.

15 But so much the more
went abroad the report
concerning him: and great
multitudes came together
to hear, and to be healed of
their infirmities.
16 But he withdrew
himself in the deserts, and
prayed.

The Gospel of Mark
Chapter 2

MARK
Chapter 2
1 And when he entered
again into Capernaum after
some days, it was noised
that he was in the house.
2 And many were
gathered together, so that
there was no longer room
for them, no, not even
about the door: and he
spake the word unto them.
3 And they come,
bringing unto him a man
sick of the palsy, borne of
four.
4 And when they could
not come nigh unto him
for the crowd, they
uncovered the roof where
he was: and when they had
broken it up, they let down
the bed whereon the sick
of the palsy lay.
5 And Jesus seeing their
faith saith unto the sick of
the palsy, Son, thy sins are
forgiven.
6 But there were certain
of the scribes sitting there,
and reasoning in their
hearts,
7 Why doth this man thus
speak? he blasphemeth:
who can forgive sins but
one, even God?
8 And straightway Jesus,
perceiving in his spirit that
they so reasoned within
themselves, saith unto
them, Why reason ye these
things in your hearts?
9 Which is easier, to say
to the sick of the palsy,
Thy sins are forgiven; or to
say, Arise, and take up thy
bed, and walk?
10 But that ye may know
that the Son of man hath
authority on earth to
forgive sins (he saith to the
sick of the palsy),
11 I say unto thee, Arise,
take up thy bed, and go
unto thy house.
12 And he arose, and
straightway took up the
bed, and went forth before
them all; insomuch that
they were all amazed, and
glorified God, saying, We
never saw it on this
fashion.
14 And as he passed by,
he saw Levi the son of
Alphaeus sitting at the
place of toll, and he saith
unto him, Follow me. And
he arose and followed him.
15 And it came to pass,
that he was sitting at meat
in his house, and many
publicans and sinners sat
down with Jesus and his
disciples: for there were
many, and they followed
him.
16 And the scribes of the
Pharisees, when they saw
that he was eating with the
sinners and publicans, said
unto his disciples, How is
it that he eateth and
drinketh with publicans
and sinners?
17 And when Jesus heard
it, he saith unto them,
They that are whole have
no need of a physician, but
they that are sick: I came
not to call the righteous,
but sinners.

18 And John’s disciples
and the Pharisees were
fasting: and they come and
say unto him, Why do
John’s disciples and the
disciples of the Pharisees
fast, but thy disciples fast
not?
19 And Jesus said unto
them, Can the sons of the
bridechamber fast, while
the bridegroom is with
them? as long as they have
the bridegroom with them,
they cannot fast.
20 But the days will
come, when the
bridegroom shall be taken
away from them, and then
will they fast in that day.
21 No man seweth a piece
of undressed cloth on an
old garment: else that
which should fill it up
taketh from it, the new
from the old, and a worse
rent is made.
22 And no man putteth
new wine into old
wineskins; else the wine
will burst the skins, and
the wine perisheth, and the
skins: but they put new
wine into fresh wine-skins.

23 And it came to pass,
that he was going on the
sabbath day through the
grainfields; and his
disciples began, as they
went, to pluck the ears.
24 And the Pharisees said
unto him, Behold, why do
they on the sabbath day
that which is not lawful?
25 And he said unto them,
Did ye never read what
David did, when he had
need, and was hungry, he,
and they that were with
him?
26 How he entered into
the house of God when
Abiathar was high priest,
and ate the showbread,
which it is not lawful to
eat save for the priests, and
gave also to them that
were with him?
27 And he said unto them,
The sabbath was made for
man, and not man for the
sabbath:
28 so that the Son of man
is lord even of the sabbath.

MATTHEWMatthew 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 are
forgiven.
Matthew 9:3 And behold,
certain of the scribes said
within themselves, This
man blasphemeth.
Matthew 9:4 And Jesus
knowing their thoughts
said, Wherefore think ye
evil in your hearts?
Matthew 9:5 For which is
easier, to say, Thy sins are
forgiven; or to say, Arise,
and walk?
Matthew 9:6 But that ye
may know that the Son of
man hath authority on
earth to forgive sins (then
saith he to the sick of the
palsy), Arise, and take up
thy bed, and go up unto
thy house.
Matthew 9:7 And he
arose, and departed to his
house.
Matthew 9:8 But when
the multitudes saw it, they
were afraid, and glorified
God, who had given such
authority unto men.

Matthew 9:9 And as
Jesus passed by from
thence, he saw a man,
called Matthew, sitting at
the place of toll: and he
saith unto him, Follow me.
And he arose, and
followed him.
Matthew 9:10 And it
came to pass, as he sat at
meat in the house, behold,
many publicans and
sinners came and sat down
with Jesus and his
disciples.
Matthew 9:11 And when
the Pharisees saw it, they
said unto his disciples,
Why eateth your Teacher
with the publicans and
sinners?
Matthew 9:12 But when
he heard it, he said, They
that are whole have no
need of a physician, but
they that are sick.
Matthew 9:13 But go ye
and learn what this
meaneth, I desire mercy,
and not sacrifice, for I
came not to call the
righteous, but sinners.

Matthew 9:14 Then
come to him the disciples
of John, saying, Why do
we and the Pharisees fast
oft, but thy disciples fast
not?
Matthew 9:15 And Jesus
said unto them, Can the
sons of the bridechamber
mourn, as long as the
bridegroom is with them?
but the days will come,
when the bridegroom shall
be taken away from them,
and then will they fast.
Matthew 9:16 And no
man putteth a piece of
undressed cloth upon an
old garment; for that which
should fill it up taketh
from the garment, and a
worse rent is made.
Matthew 9:17 Neither do
men put new wine into old
wine-skins: else the skins
burst, and the wine is
spilled, and the skins
perish: but they put new
wine into fresh wine-skins,
and both are preserved.

Matthew 12:1 At that
season Jesus went on the
sabbath day through the
grainfields; and his
disciples were hungry and
began to pluck ears and to
eat.
Matthew 12:2 But the
Pharisees, when they saw
it, said unto him, Behold,
thy disciples do that which
it is not lawful to do upon
the sabbath.
Matthew 12:3 But he said
unto them, Have ye not
read what David did, when
he was hungry, and they
that were with him;
Matthew 12:4 how he
entered into the house of
God, and ate the
showbread, which it was
not lawful for him to eat,
neither for them that were
with him, but only for the
priests?
Matthew 12:5 Or have ye
not read in the law, that on
the sabbath day the priests
in the temple profane the
sabbath, and are guiltless?
Matthew 12:6 But I say
unto you, that one greater
than the temple is here.
Matthew 12:7 But if ye
had known what this
meaneth, I desire mercy,
and not sacrifice, ye would
not have condemned the
guiltless.
Matthew 12:8 For the Son
of man is lord of the
sabbath.

LUKELuke 5:18 And behold,
men bring on a bed a man
that was palsied: and they
sought to bring him in, and
to lay him before him.
Luke 5:19 And not
finding by what way they
might bring him in because
of the multitude, they went
up to the housetop, and let
him down through the tiles
with his couch into the
midst before Jesus.
Luke 5:20 And seeing
their faith, he said, Man,
thy sins are forgiven thee.
Luke 5:21 And the scribes
and the Pharisees began to
reason, saying, Who is this
that speaketh blasphemies?
Who can forgive sins, but
God alone?
Luke 5:22 But Jesus
perceiving their
reasonings, answered and
said unto them, Why
reason ye in your hearts?
Luke 5:23 Which is
easier, to say, Thy sins are
forgiven thee; or to say,
Arise and walk?
Luke 5:24 But that ye
may know that the Son of
man hath authority on
earth to forgive sins (he
said unto him that was
palsied), I say unto thee,
Arise, and take up thy
couch, and go unto thy
house.
Luke 5:25 And
immediately he rose up
before them, and took up
that whereon he lay, and
departed to his house,
glorifying God.
Luke 5:26 And
amazement took hold on
all, and they glorified God;
and they were filled with
fear, saying, We have seen
strange things to-day.

Luke 5:27 And after
these things he went forth,
and beheld a publican,
named Levi, sitting at the
place of toll, and said unto
him, Follow me.
Luke 5:28 And he forsook
all, and rose up and
followed him.
Luke 5:29 And Levi made
him a great feast in his
house: and there was a
great multitude of
publicans and of others
that were sitting at meat
with them.
Luke 5:30 And the
Pharisees and their scribes
murmured against his
disciples, saying, Why do
ye eat and drink with the
publicans and sinners?
Luke 5:31 And Jesus
answering said unto them,
They that are in health
have no need of a
physician; but they that are
sick.
Luke 5:32 I am not come
to call the righteous but
sinners to repentance.

Luke 5:33 And they said
unto him, The disciples of
John fast often, and make
supplications; likewise
also the disciples of the
Pharisees; but thine eat and
drink.
Luke 5:34 And Jesus said
unto them, Can ye make
the sons of the
bride-chamber fast, while
the bridegroom is with
them?
Luke 5:35 But the days
will come; and when the
bridegroom shall be taken
away from them, then will
they fast in those days.
Luke 5:36 And he spake
also a parable unto them:
No man rendeth a piece
from a new garment and
putteth it upon an old
garment; else he will rend
the new, and also the piece
from the new will not
agree with the old.
Luke 5:37 And no man
putteth new wine into old
wine-skins; else the new
wine will burst the skins,
and itself will be spilled,
and the skins will perish.
Luke 5:38 But new wine
must be put into fresh
wine-skins.

Luke 6:1 Now it came to
pass on a sabbath, that he
was going through the
grainfields; and his
disciples plucked the ears,
and did eat, rubbing them
in their hands.
Luke 6:2 But certain of
the Pharisees said, Why do
ye that which it is not
lawful to do on the sabbath
day?
Luke 6:3 And Jesus
answering them said, Have
ye not read even this, what
David did, when he was
hungry, he, and they that
were with him;
Luke 6:4 how he entered
into the house of God, and
took and ate the
showbread, and gave also
to them that were with
him; which it is not lawful
to eat save for the priests
alone?
Luke 6:5 And he said
unto them, The Son of
man is lord of the sabbath.

The Gospel of Mark
Chapter 3

MARK
Chapter 3
1 And he entered again
into the synagogue; and
there was a man there who
had his hand withered.
2 And they watched him,
whether he would heal him
on the sabbath day; that
they might accuse him.
3 And he saith unto the
man that had his hand
withered, Stand forth.
4 And he saith unto them,
Is it lawful on the sabbath
day to do good, or to do
harm? to save a life, or to
kill? But they held their
peace.
5 And when he had
looked round about on
them with anger, being
grieved at the hardening of
their heart, he saith unto
the man, Stretch forth thy
hand. And he stretched it
forth; and his hand was
restored.
6 And the Pharisees went
out, and straightway with
the Herodians took
counsel against him, how
they might destroy him.

7 And Jesus with his
disciples withdrew to the
sea: and a great multitude
from Galilee followed; and
from Judaea,
8 and from Jerusalem, and
from Idumaea, and beyond
the Jordan, and about Tyre
and Sidon, a great
multitude, hearing what
great things he did, came
unto him.
9 And he spake to his
disciples, that a little boat
should wait on him
because of the crowd, lest
they should throng him:
10 for he had healed
many; insomuch that as
many as had plagues
pressed upon him that they
might touch him.
11 And the unclean
spirits, whensoever they
beheld him, fell down
before him, and cried,
saying, Thou art the Son
of God.
12 And he charged them
much that they should not
make him known.

13 And he goeth up into
the mountain, and calleth
unto him whom he himself
would; and they went unto
him.

14 And he appointed
twelve, that they might be
with him, and that he
might send them forth to
preach,
15 and to have authority
to cast out demons:

16 and Simon he
surnamed Peter;
17 and James the son of
Zebedee, and John the
brother of James; and them
he surnamed Boanerges,
which is, Sons of thunder:
18 and Andrew, and
Philip, and Bartholomew,
and Matthew, and
Thomas, and James the
son of Alphaeus, and
Thaddaeus, and Simon the
Cananaean,
19 and Judas Iscariot,
who also betrayed him.
And he cometh into a
house.

20 And the multitude
cometh together again, so
that they could not so
much as eat bread.
21 And when his friends
heard it, they went out to
lay hold on him: for they
said, He is beside himself.

22 And the scribes that
came down from
Jerusalem said, He hath
Beelzebub, and, By the
prince of the demons
casteth he out the demons.
23 And he called them
unto him, and said unto
them in parables, How can
Satan cast out Satan?
24 And if a kingdom be
divided against itself, that
kingdom cannot stand.
25 And if a house be
divided against itself, that
house will not be able to
stand.
26 And if Satan hath risen
up against himself, and is
divided, he cannot stand,
but hath an end.
27 But no one can enter
into the house of the strong
man, and spoil his goods,
except he first bind the
strong man; and then he
will spoil his house.

28 Verily I say unto you,
All their sins shall be
forgiven unto the sons of
men, and their blasphemies
wherewith soever they
shall blaspheme:
29 but whosoever shall
blaspheme against the
Holy Spirit hath never
forgiveness, but is guilty
of an eternal sin:
30 because they said, He
hath an unclean spirit.

31 And there come his
mother and his brethren;
and, standing without, they
sent unto him, calling him.
32 And a multitude was
sitting about him; and they
say unto him, Behold, thy
mother and thy brethren
without seek for thee.
33 And he answereth
them, and saith, Who is
my mother and my
brethren?
34 And looking round on
them that sat round about
him, he saith, Behold, my
mother and my brethren!
35 For whosoever shall
do the will of God, the
same is my brother, and
sister, and mother.

MATTHEWMatthew 12:9 And he
departed thence, and went
into their synagogue:
Matthew 12:10 and
behold, a man having a
withered hand. And they
asked him, saying, Is it
lawful to heal on the
sabbath day? that they
might accuse him.
Matthew 12:11 And he
said unto them, What man
shall there be of you, that
shall have one sheep, and
if this fall into a pit on the
sabbath day, will he not
lay hold on it, and lift it
out?
Matthew 12:12 How
much then is a man of
more value than a sheep!
Wherefore it is lawful to
do good on the sabbath
day.
Matthew 12:13 Then saith
he to the man, Stretch forth
thy hand. And he stretched
it forth; and it was restored
whole, as the other.
Matthew 12:14 But the
Pharisees went out, and
took counsel against him,
how they might destroy
him.

Matthew 12:15 And Jesus
perceiving it withdrew
from thence: and many
followed him; and he
healed them all,
Matthew 12:16 and
charged them that they
should not make him
known:

Matthew 5:1 And seeing
the multitudes, he went up
into the mountain: and
when he had sat down, his
disciples came unto him:

Matthew 10:1 And he
called unto him his twelve
disciples, and gave them
authority over unclean
spirits, to cast them out,
and to heal all manner of
disease and all manner of
sickness.

Matthew 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;
Matthew 10:3 Philip, and
Bartholomew; Thomas,
and Matthew the publican;
James the son of
Alphaeus, and Thaddaeus;
Matthew 10:4 Simon the
Cananaean, and Judas
Iscariot, who also betrayed
him.

Matthew 9:34 But the
Pharisees said, By the
prince of the demons
casteth he out demons.

Matthew 12:25 And
knowing their thoughts he
said unto them, Every
kingdom divided against
itself is brought to
desolation; and every city
or house divided against
itself shall not stand:
Matthew 12:26 and if
Satan casteth out Satan, he
is divided against himself;
how then shall his
kingdom stand?
Matthew 12:27 And if I
by Beelzebub cast out
demons, by whom do your
sons cast them out?
therefore shall they be
your judges.
Matthew 12:28 But if I by
the Spirit of God cast out
demons, then is the
kingdom of God come
upon you.
Matthew 12:29 Or how
can one enter into the
house of the strong man,
and spoil his goods, except
he first bind the strong
man? and then he will
spoil his house.

Matthew 12:31 Therefore
I say unto you, Every sin
and blasphemy shall be
forgiven unto men; but the
blasphemy against the
Spirit shall not be forgiven.
Matthew 12:32 And
whosoever shall speak a
word against the Son of
man, it shall be forgiven
him; but whosoever shall
speak against the Holy
Spirit, it shall not be
forgiven him, neither in
this world, nor in that
which is to come.

Matthew 12:46 While he
was yet speaking to the
multitudes, behold, his
mother and his brethren
stood without, seeking to
speak to him.
Matthew 12:47 And one
said unto him, Behold, thy
mother and thy brethren
stand without, seeking to
speak to thee.
Matthew 12:48 But he
answered and said unto
him that told him, Who is
my mother? and who are
my brethren?
Matthew 12:49 And he
stretched forth his hand
towards his disciples, and
said, Behold, my mother
and my brethren!
Matthew 12:50 For
whosoever shall do the
will of my Father who is
in heaven, he is my
brother, and sister, and
mother.

LUKELuke 6:6 And it came to
pass on another sabbath,
that he entered into the
synagogue and taught: and
there was a man there, and
his right hand was
withered.
Luke 6:7 And the scribes
and the Pharisees watched
him, whether he would
heal on the sabbath; that
they might find how to
accuse him.
Luke 6:8 But he knew
their thoughts; and he said
to the man that had his
hand withered, Rise up,
and stand forth in the
midst. And he arose and
stood forth.
Luke 6:9 And Jesus said
unto them, I ask you, Is it
lawful on the sabbath to do
good, or to do harm? to
save a life, or to destroy
it?
Luke 6:10 And he looked
round about on them all,
and said unto him, Stretch
forth thy hand. And he did
so: and his hand was
restored.
Luke 6:11 But they were
filled with madness; and
communed one with
another what they might
do to Jesus.

Luke 6:17 and he came
down with them, and stood
on a level place, and a
great multitude of his
disciples, and a great
number of the people from
all Judaea and Jerusalem,
and the sea coast of Tyre
and Sidon, who came to
hear him, and to be healed
of their diseases;
Luke 6:18 and they that
were troubled with unclean
spirits were healed.
Luke 6:19 And all the
multitude sought to touch
him; for power came forth
from him, and healed them
all.

Luke 5:1 Now it came to
pass, while the multitude
pressed upon him and
heard the word of God,
that he was standing by the
lake of Gennesaret;
Luke 5:2 and he saw two
boats standing by the lake:
but the fishermen had gone
out of them, and were
washing their nets.
Luke 5:3 And he entered
into one of the boats,
which was Simon’s, and
asked him to put out a
little from the land. And he
sat down and taught the
multitudes out of the boat.

Luke 6:12 And it came
to pass in these days, that
he went out into the
mountain to pray; and he
continued all night in
prayer to God.

Luke 9:1 And he called
the twelve together, and
gave them power and
authority over all demons,
and to cure diseases.

Luke 6:14 Simon, whom
he also named Peter, and
Andrew his brother, and
James and John, and Philip
and Bartholomew,
Luke 6:15 and Matthew
and Thomas, and James
the son of Alphaeus, and
Simon who was called the
Zealot,
Luke 6:16 and Judas the
son of James, and Judas
Iscariot, who became a
traitor;

Luke 11:17 But he,
knowing their thoughts,
said unto them, Every
kingdom divided against
itself is brought to
desolation; and a house
divided against a house
falleth.
Luke 11:18 And if Satan
also is divided against
himself, how shall his
kingdom stand? because
ye say that I cast out
demons by Beelzebub.
Luke 11:19 And if I by
Beelzebub cast out
demons, by whom do your
sons cast them out?
therefore shall they be
your judges.
Luke 11:20 But if I by the
finger of God cast out
demons, then is the
kingdom of God come
upon you.
Luke 11:21 When the
strong man fully armed
guardeth his own court, his
goods are in peace:
Luke 11:22 but when a
stronger than he shall
come upon him, and
overcome him, he taketh
from him his whole armor
wherein he trusted, and
divideth his spoils.

Luke 12:10 And every
one who shall speak a
word against the Son of
man, it shall be forgiven
him: but unto him that
blasphemeth against the
Holy Spirit it shall not be
forgiven.

Luke 8:19 And there
came to him his mother
and brethren, and they
could not come at him for
the crowd.
Luke 8:20 And it was told
him, Thy mother and thy
brethren stand without,
desiring to see thee.
Luke 8:21 But he
answered and said unto
them, My mother and my
brethren are these that hear
the word of God, and do
it.

MARK
Chapter 4
1 And again he began to
teach by the sea side. And
there is gathered unto him
a very great multitude, so
that he entered into a boat,
and sat in the sea; and all
the multitude were by the
sea on the land.
2 And he taught them
many things in parables,
and said unto them in his
teaching,
3 Hearken: Behold, the
sower went forth to sow:
4 and it came to pass, as
he sowed, some seed fell
by the way side, and the
birds came and devoured
it.
5 And other fell on the
rocky ground, where it had
not much earth; and
straightway it sprang up,
because it had no deepness
of earth:
6 and when the sun was
risen, it was scorched; and
because it had no root, it
withered away.
7 And other fell among
the thorns, and the thorns
grew up, and choked it,
and it yielded no fruit.
8 And others fell into the
good ground, and yielded
fruit, growing up and
increasing; and brought
forth, thirtyfold, and
sixtyfold, and a
hundredfold.
9 And he said, Who hath
ears to hear, let him hear.
10 And when he was
alone, they that were about
him with the twelve asked
of him the parables.
11 And he said unto them,
Unto you is given the
mystery of the kingdom of
God: but unto them that
are without, all things are
done in parables:
12 that seeing they may
see, and not perceive; and
hearing they may hear, and
not understand; lest haply
they should turn again, and
it should be forgiven them.

13 And he saith unto
them, Know ye not this
parable? and how shall ye
know all the parables?
14 The sower soweth the
word.
15 And these are they by
the way side, where the
word is sown; and when
they have heard,
straightway cometh Satan,
and taketh away the word
which hath been sown in
them.
16 And these in like
manner are they that are
sown upon the rocky
places, who, when they
have heard the word,
straightway receive it with
joy;
17 and they have no root
in themselves, but endure
for a while; then, when
tribulation or persecution
ariseth because of the
word, straightway they
stumble.
18 And others are they
that are sown among the
thorns; these are they that
have heard the word,
19 and the cares of the
world, and the
deceitfulness of riches, and
the lusts of other things
entering in, choke the
word, and it becometh
unfruitful.
20 And those are they that
were sown upon the good
ground; such as hear the
word, and accept it, and
bear fruit, thirtyfold, and
sixtyfold, and a
hundredfold.
21 And he said unto
them, Is the lamp brought
to be put under the bushel,
or under the bed, and not
to be put on the stand?

22 For there is nothing
hid, save that it should be
manifested; neither was
anything made secret, but
that it should come to
light.

23 If any man hath ears to
hear, let him hear.

24 And he said unto them,
Take heed what ye hear:
with what measure ye
mete it shall be measured
unto you; and more shall
be given unto you.

25 For he that hath, to him
shall be given: and he that
hath not, from him shall be
taken away even that
which he hath.

25 For he that hath, to him
shall be given: and he that
hath not, from him shall be
taken away even that
which he hath.
26 And he said, So is the
kingdom of God, as if a
man should cast seed upon
the earth;
27 and should sleep and
rise night and day, and the
seed should spring up and
grow, he knoweth not
how.
28 The earth beareth fruit
of herself; first the blade,
then the ear, then the full
grain in the ear.
29 But when the fruit is
ripe, straightway he
putteth forth the sickle,
because the harvest is
come.
30 And he said, How
shall we liken the kingdom
of God? or in what parable
shall we set it forth?
31 It is like a grain of
mustard seed, which, when
it is sown upon the earth,
though it be less than all
the seeds that are upon the
earth,
32 yet when it is sown,
groweth up, and becometh
greater than all the herbs,
and putteth out great
branches; so that the birds
of the heaven can lodge
under the shadow thereof.
33 And with many such
parables spake he the word
unto them, as they were
able to hear it;
34 and without a parable
spake he not unto them:
but privately to his own
disciples he expounded all
things.

35 And on that day,
when even was come, he
saith unto them, Let us go
over unto the other side.
36 And leaving the
multitude, they take him
with them, even as he was,
in the boat. And other
boats were with him.
37 And there ariseth a
great storm of wind, and
the waves beat into the
boat, insomuch that the
boat was now filling.
38 And he himself was in
the stern, asleep on the
cushion: and they awake
him, and say unto him,
Teacher, carest thou not
that we perish?
39 And he awoke, and
rebuked the wind, and said
unto the sea, Peace, be
still. And the wind ceased,
and there was a great
calm.
40 And he said unto them,
Why are ye fearful? have
ye not yet faith?
41 And they feared
exceedingly, and said one
to another, Who then is
this, that even the wind
and the sea obey him?

MATTHEWMatthew 13:1 On that
day went Jesus out of the
house, and sat by the sea
side.
Matthew 13:2 And there
were gathered unto him
great multitudes, so that he
entered into a boat, and
sat; and all the multitude
stood on the beach.
Matthew 13:3 And he
spake to them many things
in parables, saying,
Behold, the sower went
forth to sow;
Matthew 13:4 and as he
sowed, some seeds fell by
the way side, and the birds
came and devoured them:
Matthew 13:5 and others
fell upon the rocky places,
where they had not much
earth: and straightway they
sprang up, because they
had no deepness of earth:
Matthew 13:6 and when
the sun was risen, they
were scorched; and
because they had no root,
they withered away.
Matthew 13:7 And others
fell upon the thorns; and
the thorns grew up and
choked them:
Matthew 13:8 and others
fell upon the good ground,
and yielded fruit, some a
hundredfold, some sixty,
some thirty.
Matthew 13:9 He that
hath ears, let him hear.
Matthew 13:10 And the
disciples came, and said
unto him, Why speakest
thou unto them in
parables?
Matthew 13:11 And he
answered and said unto
them, Unto you it is given
to know the mysteries of
the kingdom of heaven,
but to them it is not given.
Matthew 13:12 For
whosoever hath, to him
shall be given, and he shall
have abundance: but
whosoever hath not, from
him shall be taken away
even that which he hath.
Matthew 13:13 Therefore
speak I to them in
parables; because seeing
they see not, and hearing
they hear not, neither do
they understand.
Matthew 13:14 And unto
them is fulfilled the
prophecy of Isaiah, which
saith, By hearing ye shall
hear, and shall in no wise
understand; And seeing ye
shall see, and shall in no
wise perceive:
Matthew 13:15 For this
people’s heart is waxed
gross, And their ears are
dull of hearing, And their
eyes they have closed;
Lest haply they should
perceive with their eyes,
And hear with their ears,
And understand with their
heart, And should turn
again, And I should heal
them.

Matthew 13:18 Hear then
ye the parable of the
sower.
Matthew 13:19 When any
one heareth the word of
the kingdom, and
understandeth it not, then
cometh the evil one, and
snatcheth away that which
hath been sown in his
heart. This is he that was
sown by the way side.
Matthew 13:20 And he
that was sown upon the
rocky places, this is he that
heareth the word, and
straightway with joy
receiveth it;
Matthew 13:21 yet hath
he not root in himself, but
endureth for a while; and
when tribulation or
persecution ariseth because
of the word, straightway
he stumbleth.
Matthew 13:22 And he
that was sown among the
thorns, this is he that
heareth the word; and the
care of the world, and the
deceitfulness of riches,
choke the word, and he
becometh unfruitful.
Matthew 13:23 And he
that was sown upon the
good ground, this is he that
heareth the word, and
understandeth it; who
verily beareth fruit, and
bringeth forth, some a
hundredfold, some sixty,
some thirty.

Matthew 5:15 Neither do
men light a lamp, and put
it under the bushel, but on
the stand; and it shineth
unto all that are in the
house.

Matthew 10:26 Fear them
not therefore: for there is
nothing covered, that shall
not be revealed; and hid,
that shall not be known.

Matthew 11:15 He that
hath ears to hear, let him
hear.
Matthew 13:9 He that
hath ears, let him hear.

Matthew 7:2 For with
what judgment ye judge,
ye shall be judged: and
with what measure ye
mete, it shall be measured
unto you.

Matthew 13:12 For
whosoever hath, to him
shall be given, and he shall
have abundance: but
whosoever hath not, from
him shall be taken away
even that which he hath.
Matthew 25:29 For unto
every one that hath shall be
given, and he shall have
abundance: but from him
that hath not, even that
which he hath shall be
taken away.

Matthew 13:31 Another
parable set he before them,
saying, The kingdom of
heaven is like unto a grain
of mustard seed, which a
man took, and sowed in
his field:
Matthew 13:32 which
indeed is less than all
seeds; but when it is
grown, it is greater than
the herbs, and becometh a
tree, so that the birds of the
heaven come and lodge in
the branches thereof.

Matthew 13:34 All these
things spake Jesus in
parables unto the
multitudes; and without a
parable spake he nothing
unto them:

Matthew 8:18 Now
when Jesus saw great
multitudes about him, he
gave commandments to
depart unto the other side.

Matthew 8:23 And when
he was entered into a boat,
his disciples followed him.
Matthew 8:24 And
behold, there arose a great
tempest in the sea,
insomuch that the boat was
covered with the waves:
but he was asleep.
Matthew 8:25 And they
came to him, and awoke
him, saying, Save, Lord;
we perish.
Matthew 8:26 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.
Matthew 8:27 And the
men marvelled, saying,
What manner of man is
this, that even the winds
and the sea obey him?

LUKELuke 8:4 And when a
great multitude came
together, and they of every
city resorted unto him, he
spake by a parable:
Luke 8:5 The sower went
forth to sow his seed: and
as he sowed, some fell by
the way side; and it was
trodden under foot, and the
birds of the heaven
devoured it.
Luke 8:6 And other fell
on the rock; and as soon as
it grew, it withered away,
because it had no
moisture.
Luke 8:7 And other fell
amidst the thorns; and the
thorns grew with it, and
choked it.
Luke 8:8 And other fell
into the good ground, and
grew, and brought forth
fruit a hundredfold. As he
said these things, he cried,
He that hath ears to hear,
let him hear.
Luke 8:9 And his
disciples asked him what
this parable might be.
Luke 8:10 And he said,
Unto you it is given to
know the mysteries of the
kingdom of God: but to
the rest in parables; that
seeing they may not see,
and hearing they may not
understand.

Luke 8:11 Now the
parable is this: The seed is
the word of God.
Luke 8:12 And those by
the way side are they that
have heard; then cometh
the devil, and taketh away
the word from their heart,
that they may not believe
and be saved.
Luke 8:13 And those on
the rock are they who,
when they have heard,
receive the word with joy;
and these have no root,
who for a while believe,
and in time of temptation
fall away.
Luke 8:14 And that which
fell among the thorns,
these are they that have
heard, and as they go on
their way they are choked
with cares and riches and
pleasures of this life, and
bring no fruit to perfection.
Luke 8:15 And that in the
good ground, these are
such as in an honest and
good heart, having heard
the word, hold it fast, and
bring forth fruit with
patience.

Luke 8:16 And no man,
when he hath lighted a
lamp, covereth it with a
vessel, or putteth it under a
bed; but putteth it on a
stand, that they that enter
in may see the light.
Luke 11:33 No man,
when he hath lighted a
lamp, putteth it in a cellar,
neither under the bushel,
but on the stand, that they
which enter in may see the
light.

Luke 8:17 For nothing is
hid, that shall not be made
manifest; nor anything
secret, that shall not be
known and come to light.
Luke 12:2 But there is
nothing covered up, that
shall not be revealed; and
hid, that shall not be
known.

Luke 8:8 And other fell
into the good ground, and
grew, and brought forth
fruit a hundredfold. As he
said these things, he cried,
He that hath ears to hear,
let him hear.

Luke 6:38 give, and it
shall be given unto you;
good measure, pressed
down, shaken together,
running over, shall they
give into your bosom. For
with what measure ye
mete it shall be measured
to you again.

Luke 8:18 Take heed
therefore how ye hear: for
whosoever hath, to him
shall be given; and
whosoever hath not, from
him shall be taken away
even that which he thinketh
he hath.
Luke 19:26 I say unto
you, that unto every one
that hath shall be given;
but from him that hath not,
even that which he hath
shall be taken away from
him.

Luke 13:18 He said
therefore, Unto what is the
kingdom of God like? and
whereunto shall I liken it?
Luke 13:19 It is like unto
a grain of mustard seed,
which a man took, and
cast into his own garden;
and it grew, and became a
tree; and the birds of the
heaven lodged in the
branches thereof.

Luke 8:22 Now it came
to pass on one of those
days, that he entered into a
boat, himself and his
disciples; and he said unto
them, Let us go over unto
the other side of the lake:
and they launched forth.
Luke 8:22 Now it came
sailed he fell asleep: and
there came down a storm
of wind on the lake; and
they were filling with
water, and were in
jeopardy.
Luke 8:24 And they came
to him and awoke him,
saying, Master, master, we
perish. And he awoke, and
rebuked the wind and the
raging of the water: and
they ceased, and there was
a calm.
Luke 8:25 And he said
unto them, Where is your
faith? And being afraid
they marvelled, saying one
to another, Who then is
this, that he commandeth
even the winds and the
water, and they obey him?

Chapter 5

MARK
Chapter 5
1 And they came to the
other side of the sea, into
the country of the
Gerasenes.
2 And when he was come
out of the boat,
straightway there met him
out of the tombs a man
with an unclean spirit,
3 who had his dwelling in
the tombs: and no man
could any more bind him,
no, not with a chain;
4 because that he had
been often bound with
fetters and chains, and the
chains had been rent
asunder by him, and the
fetters broken in pieces:
and no man had strength to
tame him.
5 And always, night and
day, in the tombs and in
the mountains, he was
crying out, and cutting
himself with stones.
6 And when he saw Jesus
from afar, he ran and
worshipped him;
7 and crying out with a
loud voice, he saith, What
have I to do with thee,
Jesus, thou Son of the
Most High God? I adjure
thee by God, torment me
not.
8 For he said unto him,
Come forth, thou unclean
spirit, out of the man.
9 And he asked him,
What is thy name? And he
saith unto him, My name
is Legion; for we are
many.
10 And he besought him
much that he would not
send them away out of the
country.
11 Now there was there
on the mountain side a
great herd of swine
feeding.
12 And they besought
him, saying, Send us into
the swine, that we may
enter into them.
13 And he gave them
leave. And the unclean
spirits came out, and
entered into the swine: and
the herd rushed down the
steep into the sea, in
number about two
thousand; and they were
drowned in the sea.
14 And they that fed them
fled, and told it in the city,
and in the country. And
they came to see what it
was that had come to pass.
15 And they come to
Jesus, and behold him that
was possessed with
demons sitting, clothed
and in his right mind, even
him that had the legion:
and they were afraid.
16 And they that saw it
declared unto them how it
befell him that was
possessed with demons,
and concerning the swine.
17 And they began to
beseech him to depart
from their borders.
18 And as he was entering
into the boat, he that had
been possessed with
demons besought him that
he might be with him.
19 And he suffered him
not, but saith unto him, Go
to thy house unto thy
friends, and tell them how
great things the Lord hath
done for thee, and how he
had mercy on thee.
20 And he went his way,
and began to publish in
Decapolis how great
things Jesus had done for
him: and all men
marvelled.
21 And when Jesus had
crossed over again in the
boat unto the other side, a
great multitude was
gathered unto him; and he
was by the sea.
22 And there cometh one
of the rulers of the
synagogue, Jairus by
name; and seeing him, he
falleth at his feet,
23 and beseecheth him
much, saying, My little
daughter is at the point of
death: I pray thee, that
thou come and lay thy
hands on her, that she may
be made whole, and live.
24 And he went with him;
and a great multitude
followed him, and they
thronged him.
25 And a woman, who
had an issue of blood
twelve years,
26 and had suffered many
things of many physicians,
and had spent all that she
had, and was nothing
bettered, but rather grew
worse,
27 having heard the things
concerning Jesus, came in
the crowd behind, and
touched his garment.
28 For she said, If I touch
but his garments, I shall be
made whole.
29 And straightway the
fountain of her blood was
dried up; and she felt in
her body that she was
healed of her plague.
30 And straightway Jesus,
perceiving in himself that
the power proceeding from
him had gone forth, turned
him about in the crowd,
and said, Who touched my
garments?
31 And his disciples said
unto him, Thou seest the
multitude thronging thee,
and sayest thou, Who
touched me?
32 And he looked round
about to see her that had
done this thing.
33 But the woman fearing
and trembling, knowing
what had been done to her,
came and fell down before
him, and told him all the
truth.
34 And he said unto her,
Daughter, thy faith hath
made thee whole; go in
peace, and be whole of thy
plague.
35 While he yet spake,
they come from the ruler
of the synagogue’s house
saying, Thy daughter is
dead: why troublest thou
the Teacher any further?
36 But Jesus, not heeding
the word spoken, saith
unto the ruler of the
synagogue, Fear not, only
believe.
37 And he suffered no
man to follow with him,
save Peter, and James, and
John the brother of James.
38 And they come to the
house of the ruler of the
synagogue; and he
beholdeth a tumult, and
many weeping and wailing
greatly.
39 And when he was
entered in, he saith unto
them, Why make ye a
tumult, and weep? the
child is not dead, but
sleepeth.
40 And they laughed him
to scorn. But he, having
put them all forth, taketh
the father of the child and
her mother and them that
were with him, and goeth
in where the child was.
41 And taking the child
by the hand, he saith unto
her, Talitha cumi; which
is, being interpreted,
Damsel, I say unto thee,
Arise.
42 And straightway the
damsel rose up, and
walked; for she was
twelve years old. And they
were amazed straightway
with a great amazement.
43 And he charged them
much that no man should
know this: and he
commanded that
something should be given
her to eat.
MATTHEWMatthew 8:28 And when
he was come to the other
side into the country of the
Gadarenes, there met him
two possessed with
demons, coming forth out
of the tombs, exceeding
fierce, so that no man
could pass by that way.
Matthew 8:29 And
behold, they cried out,
saying, What have we to
do with thee, thou Son of
God? art thou come hither
to torment us before the
time?
Matthew 8:30 Now there
was afar off from them a
herd of many swine
feeding.
Matthew 8:31 And the
demons besought him,
saying, If thou cast us out,
send us away into the herd
of swine.
Matthew 8:32 And he said
unto them, Go. And they
came out, and went into
the swine: and behold, the
whole herd rushed down
the steep into the sea, and
perished in the waters.
Matthew 8:33 And they
that fed them fled, and
went away into the city,
and told everything, and
what was befallen to them
that were possessed with
demons.
Matthew 8:34 And
behold, all the city came
out to meet Jesus: and
when they saw him, they
besought him that he
would depart from their
borders.

Matthew 9:1 And he
entered into a boat, and
crossed over, and came
into his own city.

Matthew 9:18 While he
spake these things unto
them, behold, there came a
ruler, and worshipped him,
saying, My daughter is
even now dead: but come
and lay thy hand upon her,
and she shall live.
Matthew 9:19 And Jesus
arose, and followed him,
and so did his disciples.
Matthew 9:20 And
behold, a woman, who had
an issue of blood twelve
years, came behind him,
and touched the border of
his garment:
Matthew 9:21 for she said
within herself, If I do but
touch his garment, I shall
be made whole.
Matthew 9:22 But Jesus
turning and seeing her
said, Daughter, be of good
cheer; thy faith hath made
thee whole. And the
woman was made whole
from that hour.
Matthew 9:23 And when
Jesus came into the ruler’s
house, and saw the
flute-players, and the
crowd making a tumult,
Matthew 9:24 he said,
Give place: for the damsel
is not dead, but sleepeth.
And they laughed him to
scorn.
Matthew 9:25 But when
the crowd was put forth,
he entered in, and took her
by the hand; and the
damsel arose.
Matthew 9:26 And the
fame hereof went forth
into all that land.

LUKELuke 8:26 And they
arrived at the country of
the Gerasenes, which is
over against Galilee.
Luke 8:27 And when he
was come forth upon the
land, there met him a
certain man out of the city,
who had demons; and for a
long time he had worn no
clothes, and abode not in
any house, but in the
tombs.
Luke 8:28 And when he
saw Jesus, he cried out,
and fell down before him,
and with a loud voice said,
What have I to do with
thee, Jesus, thou Son of
the Most High God? I
beseech thee, torment me
not.
Luke 8:29 For he was
commanding the unclean
spirit to come out from the
man. For oftentimes it had
seized him: and he was
kept under guard, and
bound with chains and
fetters; and breaking the
bands asunder, he was
driven of the demon into
the deserts.
Luke 8:30 And Jesus
asked him, What is thy
name? And he said,
Legion; for many demons
were entered into him.
Luke 8:31 And they
entreated him that he
would not command them
to depart into the abyss.
Luke 8:32 Now there was
there a herd of many swine
feeding on the mountain:
and they entreated him that
he would give them leave
to enter into them. And he
gave them leave.
Luke 8:33 And the
demons came out from the
man, and entered into the
swine: and the herd rushed
down the steep into the
lake, and were drowned.
Luke 8:34 And when they
that fed them saw what
had come to pass, they
fled, and told it in the city
and in the country.
Luke 8:35 And they went
out to see what had come
to pass; and they came to
Jesus, and found the man,
from whom the demons
were gone out, sitting,
clothed and in his right
mind, at the feet of Jesus:
and they were afraid.
Luke 8:36 And they that
saw it told them how he
that was possessed with
demons was made whole.
Luke 8:37 And all the
people of the country of
the Gerasenes round about
asked him to depart from
them, for they were holden
with great fear: and he
entered into a boat, and
returned.

Luke 8:38 But the man
from whom the demons
were gone out prayed him
that he might be with him:
but he sent him away,
saying,
Luke 8:39 Return to thy
house, and declare how
great things God hath done
for thee. And he went his
way, publishing
throughout the whole city
how great things Jesus had
done for him.

Luke 8:40 And as Jesus
returned, the multitude
welcomed him; for they
were all waiting for him.

Luke 8:41 And behold,
there came a man named
Jairus, and he was a ruler
of the synagogue: and he
fell down at Jesus’ feet,
and besought him to come
into his house;
Luke 8:42 for he had an
only daughter, about
twelve years of age, and
she was dying. But as he
went the multitudes
thronged him.
Luke 8:43 And a woman
having an issue of blood
twelve years, who had
spent all her living upon
physicians, and could not
be healed of any,
Luke 8:44 came behind
him, and touched the
border of his garment: and
immediately the issue of
her blood stanched.
Luke 8:45 And Jesus said,
Who is it that touched me?
And when all denied, Peter
said, and they that were
with him, Master, the
multitudes press thee and
crush thee.
Luke 8:46 But Jesus said,
Some one did touch me;
for I perceived that power
had gone forth from me.
Luke 8:47 And when the
woman saw that she was
not hid, she came
trembling, and falling
down before him declared
in the presence of all the
people for what cause she
touched him, and how she
was healed immediately.
Luke 8:48 And he said
unto her, Daughter, thy
faith hath made thee
whole; go in peace.
Luke 8:49 While he yet
spake, there cometh one
from the ruler of the
synagogue’s house,
saying, Thy daughter is
dead; trouble not the
Teacher.
Luke 8:50 But Jesus
hearing it, answered him,
Fear not: only believe, and
she shall be made whole.
Luke 8:51 And when he
came to the house, he
suffered not any man to
enter in with him, save
Peter, and John, and
James, and the father of
the maiden and her
mother.
Luke 8:52 And all were
weeping, and bewailing
her: but he said, Weep not;
for she is not dead, but
sleepeth.
Luke 8:53 And they
laughed him to scorn,
knowing that she was
dead.
Luke 8:54 But he, taking
her by the hand, called,
saying, Maiden, arise.
Luke 8:55 And her spirit
returned, and she rose up
immediately: and he
commanded that
something be given her to
eat.
Luke 8:56 And her
parents were amazed: but
he charged them to tell no
man what had been done.

MARK
Chapter 6
1 And he went out from
thence; and he cometh into
his own country; and his
disciples follow him.
2 And when the sabbath
was come, he began to
teach in the synagogue:
and many hearing him
were astonished, saying,
Whence hath this man
these things? and, What is
the wisdom that is given
unto this man, and what
mean such mighty works
wrought by his hands?
3 Is not this the carpenter,
the son of Mary, and
brother of James, and
Joses, and Judas, and
Simon? and are not his
sisters here with us? And
they were offended in him.
4 And Jesus said unto
them, A prophet is not
without honor, save in his
own country, and among
his own kin, and in his
own house.
5 And he could there do
no mighty work, save that
he laid his hands upon a
few sick folk, and healed
them.
6 And he marvelled
because of their unbelief.
And he went round about
the villages teaching.

7 And he calleth unto
him the twelve, and began
to send them forth by two
and two; and he gave them
authority over the unclean
spirits;
8 and he charged them
that they should take
nothing for their journey,
save a staff only; no bread,
no wallet, no money in
their purse;
9 but to go shod with
sandals: and, said he, put
not on two coats.
10 And he said unto them,
Wheresoever ye enter into
a house, there abide till ye
depart thence.
11 And whatsoever place
shall not receive you, and
they hear you not, as ye go
forth thence, shake off the
dust that is under your feet
for a testimony unto them.

12 And they went out,
and preached that men
should repent.

13 And they cast out
many demons, and
anointed with oil many
that were sick, and healed
them.

14 And king Herod
heard thereof; for his name
had become known: and
he said, John the Baptizer
is risen from the dead, and
therefore do these powers
work in him.
15 But others said, It is
Elijah. And others said, It
is a prophet, even as one
of the prophets.
16 But Herod, when he
heard thereof, said, John,
whom I beheaded, he is
risen.
17 For Herod himself had
sent forth and laid hold
upon John, and bound him
in prison for the sake of
Herodias, his brother
Philip’s wife; for he had
married her.
18 For John said unto
Herod, It is not lawful for
thee to have thy brother’s
wife.
19 And Herodias set
herself against him, and
desired to kill him; and she
could not;
20 for Herod feared John,
knowing that he was a
righteous and holy man,
and kept him safe. And
when he heard him, he was
much perplexed; and he
heard him gladly.
21 And when a
convenient day was come,
that Herod on his birthday
made a supper to his lords,
and the high captains, and
the chief men of Galilee;
22 and when the daughter
of Herodias herself came
in and danced, she pleased
Herod and them that sat at
meat with him; and the
king said unto the damsel,
Ask of me whatsoever
thou wilt, and I will give it
thee.
23 And he sware unto her,
Whatsoever thou shalt ask
of me, I will give it thee,
unto the half of my
kingdom.
24 And she went out, and
said unto her mother, What
shall I ask? And she said,
The head of John the
Baptizer.
25 And she came in
straightway with haste
unto the king, and asked,
saying, I will that thou
forthwith give me on a
platter the head of John the
Baptist.
26 And the king was
exceeding sorry; but for
the sake of his oaths, and
of them that sat at meat, he
would not reject her.
27 And straightway the
king sent forth a soldier of
his guard, and commanded
to bring his head: and he
went and beheaded him in
the prison,
28 and brought his head
on a platter, and gave it to
the damsel; and the damsel
gave it to her mother.
29 And when his disciples
heard thereof, they came
and took up his corpse,
and laid it in a tomb.

30 And the apostles
gather themselves together
unto Jesus; and they told
him all things, whatsoever
they had done, and
whatsoever they had
taught.
31 And he saith unto
them, Come ye yourselves
apart into a desert place,
and rest a while. For there
were many coming and
going, and they had no
leisure so much as to eat.

32 And they went away in
the boat to a desert place
apart.
33 And the people saw
them going, and many
knew them, and they ran
together there on foot from
all the cities, and outwent
them.
34 And he came forth and
saw a great multitude, and
he had compassion on
them, because they were
as sheep not having a
shepherd: and he began to
teach them many things.
35 And when the day was
now far spent, his disciples
came unto him, and said,
The place is desert, and
the day is now far spent;
36 send them away, that
they may go into the
country and villages round
about, and buy themselves
somewhat to eat.
37 But he answered and
said unto them, Give ye
them to eat. And they say
unto him, Shall we go and
buy two hundred shillings’
worth of bread, and give
them to eat?
38 And he saith unto
them, How many loaves
have ye? go and see. And
when they knew, they say,
Five, and two fishes.
39 And he commanded
them that all should sit
down by companies upon
the green grass.
40 And they sat down in
ranks, by hundreds, and by
fifties.
41 And he took the five
loaves and the two fishes,
and looking up to heaven,
he blessed, and brake the
loaves; and he gave to the
disciples to set before
them; and the two fishes
divided he among them all.
42 And they all ate, and
were filled.
43 And they took up
broken pieces, twelve
basketfuls, and also of the
fishes.
44 And they that ate the
loaves were five thousand
men.

45 And straightway he
constrained his disciples to
enter into the boat, and to
go before him unto the
other side to Bethsaida,
while he himself sendeth
the multitude away.
46 And after he had taken
leave of them, he departed
into the mountain to pray.
47 And when even was
come, the boat was in the
midst of the sea, and he
alone on the land.
48 And seeing them
distressed in rowing, for
the wind was contrary unto
them, about the fourth
watch of the night he
cometh unto them,
walking on the sea; and he
would have passed by
them:
49 but they, when they
saw him walking on the
sea, supposed that it was a
ghost, and cried out;
50 for they all saw him,
and were troubled. But he
straightway spake with
them, and saith unto them,
Be of good cheer: it is I;
be not afraid.
51 And he went up unto
them into the boat; and the
wind ceased: and they
were sore amazed in
themselves;

52 for they understood not
concerning the loaves, but
their heart was hardened.

53 And when they had
crossed over, they came to
the land unto Gennesaret,
and moored to the shore.
54 And when they were
come out of the boat,
straightway the people
knew him,
55 and ran round about
that whole region, and
began to carry about on
their beds those that were
sick, where they heard he
was.
56 And wheresoever he
entered, into villages, or
into cities, or into the
country, they laid the sick
in the marketplaces, and
besought him that they
might touch if it were but
the border of his garment:
and as many as touched
him were made whole.

MATTHEWMatthew 13:54 And
coming 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?
Matthew 13:55 Is not this
the carpenter’s son? is not
his mother called Mary?
and his brethren, James,
and Joseph, and Simon,
and Judas?
Matthew 13:56 And his
sisters, are they not all
with us? Whence then hath
this man all these things?
Matthew 13:57 And they
were offended in him. But
Jesus said unto them, A
prophet is not without
honor, save in his own
country, and in his own
house.
Matthew 13:58 And he
did not many mighty
works there because of
their unbelief.

Matthew 10:1 And he
called unto him his twelve
disciples, and gave them
authority over unclean
spirits, to cast them out,
and to heal all manner of
disease and all manner of
sickness.
Matthew 10:9 Get you no
gold, nor silver, nor brass
in your purses;
Matthew 10:10 no wallet
for your journey, neither
two coats, nor shoes, nor
staff: for the laborer is
worthy of his food.
Matthew 10:11 And into
whatsoever city or village
ye shall enter, search out
who in it is worthy; and
there abide till ye go forth.
Matthew 10:12 And as ye
enter into the house, salute
it.
Matthew 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.
Matthew 10:14 And
whosoever shall not
receive you, nor hear your
words, as ye go forth out
of that house or that city,
shake off the dust of your
feet.

Matthew 11:1 And it
came to pass when Jesus
had finished commanding
his twelve disciples, he
departed thence to teach
and preach in their cities.

Matthew 14:1 At that
season Herod the tetrarch
heard the report
concerning Jesus,
Matthew 14:2 and said
unto his servants, This is
John the Baptist; he is
risen from the dead; and
therefore do these powers
work in him.
Matthew 14:3 For Herod
had laid hold on John, and
bound him, and put him in
prison for the sake of
Herodias, his brother
Philip’s wife.
Matthew 14:4 For John
said unto him, It is not
lawful for thee to have her.
Matthew 14:5 And when
he would have put him to
death, he feared the
multitude, because they
counted him as a prophet.
Matthew 14:6 But when
Herod’s birthday came, the
daughter of Herodias
danced in the midst, and
pleased Herod.
Matthew 14:7 Whereupon
he promised with an oath
to give her whatsoever she
should ask.
Matthew 14:8 And she,
being put forward by her
mother, saith, Give me
here on a platter the head
of John the Baptist.
Matthew 14:9 And the
king was grieved; but for
the sake of his oaths, and
of them that sat at meat
with him, he commanded
it to be given;
Matthew 14:10 and he
sent and beheaded John in
the prison.
Matthew 14:11 And his
head was brought on a
platter, and given to the
damsel: and she brought it
to her mother.
Matthew 14:12 And his
disciples came, and took
up the corpse, and buried
him; and they went and
told Jesus.

Matthew 14:13 Now
when Jesus heard it, he
withdrew from thence in a
boat, to a desert place
apart: and when the
multitudes heard thereof,
they followed him on foot
from the cities.
Matthew 14:14 And he
came forth, and saw a
great multitude, and he
had compassion on them,
and healed their sick.
Matthew 14:15 And when
even was come, the
disciples came to him,
saying, The place is desert,
and the time is already
past; send the multitudes
away, that they may go
into the villages, and buy
themselves food.
Matthew 14:16 But Jesus
said unto them, They have
no need to go away; give
ye them to eat.
Matthew 14:17 And they
say unto him, We have
here but five loaves, and
two fishes.
Matthew 14:18 And he
said, Bring them hither to
me.
Matthew 14:19 And he
commanded the multitudes
to sit down on the grass;
and he took the five
loaves, and the two fishes,
and looking up to heaven,
he blessed, and brake and
gave the loaves to the
disciples, and the disciples
to the multitudes.
Matthew 14:20 And they
all ate, and were filled:
and they took up that
which remained over of
the broken pieces, twelve
baskets full.
Matthew 14:21 And they
that did eat were about
five thousand men, besides
women and children.

Matthew 14:22 And
straightway he constrained
the disciples to enter into
the boat, and to go before
him unto the other side, till
he should send the
multitudes away.
Matthew 14:23 And after
he had sent the multitudes
away, he went up into the
mountain apart to pray:
and when even was come,
he was there alone.
Matthew 14:24 But the
boat was now in the midst
of the sea, distressed by
the waves; for the wind
was contrary.
Matthew 14:25 And in the
fourth watch of the night
he came unto them,
walking upon the sea.
Matthew 14:26 And when
the disciples saw him
walking on the sea, they
were troubled, saying, It is
a ghost; and they cried out
for fear.
Matthew 14:27 But
straightway Jesus spake
unto them, saying Be of
good cheer; it is I; be not
afraid.
Matthew 14:28 And Peter
answered him and said,
Lord, if it be thou, bid me
come unto the upon the
waters.
Matthew 14:29 And he
said, Come. And Peter
went down from the boat,
and walked upon the
waters to come to Jesus.
Matthew 14:30 But when
he saw the wind, he was
afraid; and beginning to
sink, he cried out, saying,
Lord, save me.
Matthew 14:31 And
immediately Jesus
stretched forth his hand,
and took hold of him, and
saith unto him, O thou of
little faith, wherefore didst
thou doubt?
Matthew 14:32 And when
they were gone up into the
boat, the wind ceased.
John 6:15 Jesus therefore
perceiving that they were
about to come and take
him by force, to make him
king, withdrew again into
the mountain himself
alone.

Matthew 14:34 And
when they had crossed
over, they came to the
land, unto Gennesaret.
Matthew 14:35 And when
the men of that place knew
him, they sent into all that
region round about, and
brought unto him all that
were sick,
Matthew 14:36 and they
besought him that they
might only touch the
border of his garment: and
as many as touched were
made whole.

LUKELuke 9:1 And he called
the twelve together, and
gave them power and
authority over all demons,
and to cure diseases.
Luke 9:3 And he said
unto them, Take nothing
for your journey, neither
staff, nor wallet, nor bread,
nor money; neither have
two coats.
Luke 9:4 And into
whatsoever house ye enter,
there abide, and thence
depart.
Luke 9:5 And as many as
receive you not, when ye
depart from that city,
shake off the dust from
your feet for a testimony
against them.

Luke 10:4 Carry no
purse, no wallet, no shoes;
and salute no man on the
way.
Luke 10:5 And into
whatsoever house ye shall
enter, first say, Peace be to
this house.
Luke 10:6 And if a son of
peace be there, your peace
shall rest upon him: but if
not, it shall turn to you
again.
Luke 10:7 And in that
same house remain, eating
and drinking such things as
they give: for the laborer is
worthy of his hire. Go not
from house to house.
Luke 10:8 And into
whatsoever city ye enter,
and they receive you, eat
such things as are set
before you:
Luke 10:9 and heal the
sick that are therein, and
say unto them, The
kingdom of God is come
nigh unto you.
Luke 10:10 But into
whatsoever city ye shall
enter, and they receive you
not, go out into the streets
thereof and say,
Luke 10:11 Even the dust
from your city, that
cleaveth to our feet, we
wipe off against you:
nevertheless know this,
that the kingdom of God is
come nigh.

Luke 9:6 And they
departed, and went
throughout the villages,
preaching the gospel, and
healing everywhere.

Luke 9:7 Now Herod the
tetrarch heard of all that
was done: and he was
much perplexed, because
that it was said by some,
that John was risen from
the dead;
Luke 9:8 and by some,
that Elijah had appeared;
and by others, that one of
the old prophets was risen
again.
Luke 9:9 And Herod said,
John I beheaded: but who
is this, about whom I hear
such things? And he
sought to see him.

Luke 9:10 And the
apostles, when they were
returned, declared unto
him what things they had
done. And he took them,
and withdrew apart to a
city called Bethsaida.

Luke 9:10 And the
apostles, when they were
returned, declared unto
him what things they had
done. And he took them,
and withdrew apart to a
city called Bethsaida.
Luke 9:11 But the
multitudes perceiving it
followed him: and he
welcomed them, and spake
to them of the kingdom of
God, and them that had
need of healing he cured.
Luke 9:12 And the day
began to wear away; and
the twelve came, and said
unto him, Send the
multitude away, that they
may go into the villages
and country round about,
and lodge, and get
provisions: for we are here
in a desert place.
Luke 9:13 But he said
unto them, Give ye them
to eat. And they said, We
have no more than five
loaves and two fishes;
except we should go and
buy food for all this
people.
Luke 9:14 For they were
about five thousand men.
And he said unto his
disciples, Make them sit
down in companies, about
fifty each.
Luke 9:15 And they did
so, and made them all sit
down.
Luke 9:16 And he took
the five loaves and the two
fishes, and looking up to
heaven, he blessed them,
and brake; and gave to the
disciples to set before the
multitude.
Luke 9:17 And they ate,
and were all filled: and
there was taken up that
which remained over to
them of broken pieces,
twelve baskets.

MARK
Chapter 7
1 And there are gathered
together unto him the
Pharisees, and certain of
the scribes, who had come
from Jerusalem,
2 and had seen that some
of his disciples ate their
bread with defiled, that is,
unwashen, hands.
3 (For the Pharisees, and
all the Jews, except they
wash their hands
diligently, eat not, holding
the tradition of the elders;
4 and when they come
from the marketplace,
except they bathe
themselves, they eat not;
and many other things
there are, which they have
received to hold, washings
of cups, and pots, and
brasen vessels.)
5 And the Pharisees and
the scribes ask him, Why
walk not thy disciples
according to the tradition
of the elders, but eat their
bread with defiled hands?
6 And he said unto them,
Well did Isaiah prophesy
of you hypocrites, as it is
written, This people
honoreth me with their
lips, But their heart is far
from me.
7 But in vain do they
worship me, Teaching as
their doctrines the precepts
of men.
8 Ye leave the
commandment of God,
and hold fast the tradition
of men.
9 And he said unto them,
Full well do ye reject the
commandment of God,
that ye may keep your
tradition.
10 For Moses said, Honor
thy father and thy mother;
and, He that speaketh evil
of father or mother, let him
die the death:
11 but ye say, If a man
shall say to his father or
his mother, That
wherewith thou mightest
have been profited by me
is Corban, that is to say,
Given to God;
12 ye no longer suffer
him to do aught for his
father or his mother;
13 making void the word
of God by your tradition,
which ye have delivered:
and many such like things
ye do.
14 And he called to him
the multitude again, and
said unto them, Hear me
all of you, and understand:
15 there is nothing from
without the man, that
going into him can defile
him; but the things which
proceed out of the man are
those that defile the man.
16 If any man hath ears to
hear, let him hear.
17 And when he was
entered into the house
from the multitude, his
disciples asked of him the
parable.
18 And he saith unto
them, Are ye so without
understanding also?
Perceive ye not, that
whatsoever from without
goeth into the man, it
cannot defile him;
19 because it goeth not
into his heart, but into his
belly, and goeth out into
the draught? This he said,
making all meats clean.
20 And he said, That
which proceedeth out of
the man, that defileth the
man.
21 For from within, out of
the heart of men, evil
thoughts proceed,
fornications, thefts,
murders, adulteries,
22 covetings,
wickednesses, deceit,
lasciviousness, an evil eye,
railing, pride, foolishness:
23 all these evil things
proceed from within, and
defile the man.

24 And from thence he
arose, and went away into
the borders of Tyre and
Sidon. And he entered into
a house, and would have
no man know it; and he
could not be hid.
25 But straightway a
woman, whose little
daughter had an unclean
spirit, having heard of him,
came and fell down at his
feet.
26 Now the woman was a
Greek, a Syrophoenician
by race. And she besought
him that he would cast
forth the demon out of her
daughter.
27 And he said unto her,
Let the children first be
filled: for it is not meet to
take the children’s bread
and cast it to the dogs.
28 But she answered and
saith unto him, Yea, Lord;
even the dogs under the
table eat of the children’s
crumbs.
29 And he said unto her,
For this saying go thy
way; the demon is gone
out of thy daughter.
30 And she went away
unto her house, and found
the child laid upon the bed,
and the demon gone out.

31 And again he went
out from the borders of
Tyre, and came through
Sidon unto the sea of
Galilee, through the midst
of the borders of
Decapolis.
32 And they bring unto
him one that was deaf, and
had an impediment in his
speech; and they beseech
him to lay his hand upon
him.
33 And he took him aside
from the multitude
privately, and put his
fingers into his ears, and
he spat, and touched his
tongue;
34 and looking up to
heaven, he sighed, and
saith unto him, Ephphatha,
that is, Be opened.
35 And his ears were
opened, and the bond of
his tongue was loosed, and
he spake plain.
36 And he charged them
that they should tell no
man: but the more he
charged them, so much the
more a great deal they
published it.
37 And they were beyond
measure astonished,
saying, He hath done all
things well; he maketh
even the deaf to hear, and
the dumb to speak.

MATTHEWMatthew 15:1 Then there
come to Jesus from
Jerusalem Pharisees and
scribes, saying,
Matthew 15:2 Why do thy
disciples transgress the
tradition of the elders? for
they wash not their hands
when they eat bread.
Matthew 15:3 And he
answered and said unto
them, Why do ye also
transgress the
commandment of God
because of your tradition?
Matthew 15:4 For God
said, Honor thy father and
thy mother: and, He that
speaketh evil of father or
mother, let him die the
death.
Matthew 15:5 But ye say,
whosoever shall say to his
father or his mother, That
wherewith thou mightest
have been profited by me
is given to God;
Matthew 15:6 he shall not
honor his father. And ye
have made void the word
of God because of your
tradition.
Matthew 15:7 Ye
hypocrites, well did Isaiah
prophesy of you, saying,
Matthew 15:8 This people
honoreth me with their
lips; But their heart is far
from me.
Matthew 15:9 But in vain
do they worship me,
Teaching as their doctrines
the precepts of men.
Matthew 15:10 And he
called to him the
multitude, and said unto
them, Hear, and
understand:
Matthew 15:11 Not that
which entereth into the
mouth defileth the man;
but that which proceedeth
out of the mouth, this
defileth the man.
Matthew 15:12 Then
came the disciples, and
said unto him, Knowest
thou that the Pharisees
were offended, when they
heard this saying?
Matthew 15:13 But he
answered and said, Every
plant which my heavenly
Father planted not, shall be
rooted up.
Matthew 15:14 Let them
alone: they are blind
guides. And if the blind
guide the blind, both shall
fall into a pit.
Matthew 15:15 And Peter
answered and said unto
him, Declare unto us the
parable.
Matthew 15:16 And he
said, Are ye also even yet
without understanding?
Matthew 15:17 Perceive
ye not, that whatsoever
goeth into the mouth
passeth into the belly, and
is cast out into the
draught?
Matthew 15:18 But the
things which proceed out
of the mouth come forth
out of the heart; and they
defile the man.
Matthew 15:19 For out of
the heart come forth evil
thoughts, murders,
adulteries, fornications,
thefts, false witness,
railings:
Matthew 15:20 these are
the things which defile the
man; but to eat with
unwashen hands defileth
not the man.

Matthew 15:21 And
Jesus went out thence, and
withdrew into the parts of
Tyre and Sidon.
Matthew 15:22 And
behold, a Canaanitish
woman came out from
those borders, and cried,
saying, Have mercy on
me, O Lord, thou son of
David; my daughter is
grievously vexed with a
demon.
Matthew 15:23 But he
answered her not a word.
And his disciples came
and besought him, saying,
Send her away; for she
crieth after us.
Matthew 15:24 But he
answered and said, I was
not sent but unto the lost
sheep of the house of
Israel.
Matthew 15:25 But she
came and worshipped him,
saying, Lord, help me.
Matthew 15:26 And he
answered and said, It is
not meet to take the
children’s bread and cast it
to the dogs.
Matthew 15:27 But she
said, Yea, Lord: for even
the dogs eat of the crumbs
which fall from their
masters’ table.
Matthew 15:28 Then
Jesus answered and said
unto her, O woman, great
is thy faith: be it done unto
thee even as thou wilt.
And her daughter was
healed from that hour.

Matthew 15:29 And
Jesus departed thence, and
came nigh unto the sea of
Galilee; and he went up
into the mountain, and sat
there.
Matthew 15:30 And there
came unto him great
multitudes, having with
them the lame, blind,
dumb, maimed, and many
others, and they cast them
down at this feet; and he
healed them:
Matthew 15:31 insomuch
that the multitude
wondered, when they saw
the dumb speaking, the
maimed whole, and lame
walking, and the blind
seeing: and they glorified
the God of Israel.

Chapter 8

MARK
Chapter 8
1 In those days, when
there was again a great
multitude, and they had
nothing to eat, he called
unto him his disciples, and
saith unto them,
2 I have compassion on
the multitude, because
they continue with me now
three days, and have
nothing to eat:
3 and if I send them away
fasting to their home, they
will faint on the way; and
some of them are come
from far.
4 And his disciples
answered him, Whence
shall one be able to fill
these men with bread here
in a desert place?
5 And he asked them,
How many loaves have
ye? And they said, Seven.
6 And he commandeth the
multitude to sit down on
the ground: and he took
the seven loaves, and
having given thanks, he
brake, and gave to his
disciples, to set before
them; and they set them
before the multitude.
7 And they had a few
small fishes: and having
blessed them, he
commanded to set these
also before them.
8 And they ate, and were
filled: and they took up, of
broken pieces that
remained over, seven
baskets.
9 And they were about
four thousand: and he sent
them away.

10 And straightway he
entered into the boat with
his disciples, and came
into the parts of
Dalmanutha.

11 And the Pharisees
came forth, and began to
question with him, seeking
of him a sign from heaven,
trying him.
12 And he sighed deeply
in his spirit, and saith,
Why doth this generation
seek a sign? verily I say
unto you, There shall no
sign be given unto this
generation.
13 And he left them, and
again entering into the boat
departed to the other side.
14 And they forgot to take
bread; and they had not in
the boat with them more
than one loaf.
15 And he charged them,
saying, Take heed, beware
of the leaven of the
Pharisees and the leaven of
Herod.
16 And they reasoned one
with another, saying, We
have no bread.
17 And Jesus perceiving it
saith unto them, Why
reason ye, because ye have
no bread? do ye not yet
perceive, neither
understand? have ye your
heart hardened?
18 Having eyes, see ye
not? and having ears, hear
ye not? and do ye not
remember?
19 When I brake the five
loaves among the five
thousand, how many
baskets full of broken
pieces took ye up? They
say unto him, Twelve.
20 And when the seven
among the four thousand,
how many basketfuls of
broken pieces took ye up?
And they say unto him,
Seven.
21 And he said unto them,
Do ye not yet understand?

22 And they come unto
Bethsaida. And they bring
to him a blind man, and
beseech him to touch him.
23 And he took hold of
the blind man by the hand,
and brought him out of the
village; and when he had
spit on his eyes, and laid
his hands upon him, he
asked him, Seest thou
aught?
24 And he looked up, and
said, I see men; for I
behold them as trees,
walking.
25 Then again he laid his
hands upon his eyes; and
he looked stedfastly, and
was restored, and saw all
things clearly.
26 And he sent him away
to his home, saying, Do
not even enter into the
village.

27 And Jesus went forth,
and his disciples, into the
villages of Caesarea
Philippi: and on the way
he asked his disciples,
saying unto them, Who do
men say that I am?
28 And they told him,
saying, John the Baptist;
and others, Elijah; but
others, One of the
prophets.
29 And he asked them,
But who say ye that I am?
Peter answereth and saith
unto him, Thou art the
Christ.

30 And he charged them
that they should tell no
man of him.

31 And he began to teach
them, that the Son of man
must suffer many things,
and be rejected by the
elders, and the chief
priests, and the scribes,
and be killed, and after
three days rise again.
32 And he spake the
saying openly. And Peter
took him, and began to
rebuke him.
33 But he turning about,
and seeing his disciples,
rebuked Peter, and saith,
Get thee behind me, Satan;
for thou mindest not the
things of God, but the
things of men.
34 And he called unto him
the multitude with his
disciples, and said unto
them, If any man would
come after me, let him
deny himself, and take up
his cross, and follow me.
35 For whosoever would
save his life shall lose it;
and whosoever shall lose
his life for my sake and the
gospel’s shall save it.
36 For what doth it profit
a man, to gain the whole
world, and forfeit his life?
37 For what should a man
give in exchange for his
life?
38 For whosoever shall be
ashamed of me and of my
words in this adulterous
and sinful generation, the
Son of man also shall be
ashamed of him, when he
cometh in the glory of his
Father with the holy
angels.

MATTHEWMatthew 15:32 And Jesus
called unto him his
disciples, and said, I have
compassion on the
multitude, because they
continue with me now
three days and have
nothing to eat: and I would
not send them away
fasting, lest haply they
faint on the way.
Matthew 15:33 And the
disciples say unto him,
Whence should we have so
many loaves in a desert
place as to fill so great a
multitude?
Matthew 15:34 And Jesus
said unto them, How many
loaves have ye? And they
said, Seven, and a few
small fishes.
Matthew 15:35 And he
commanded the multitude
to sit down on the ground;
Matthew 15:36 and he
took the seven loaves and
the fishes; and he gave
thanks and brake, and gave
to the disciples, and the
disciples to the multitudes.
Matthew 15:37 And they
all ate, and were filled:
and they took up that
which remained over of
the broken pieces, seven
baskets full.
Matthew 15:38 And they
that did eat were four
thousand men, besides
women and children.

Matthew 15:39 And he
sent away the multitudes,
and entered into the boat,
and came into the borders
of Magadan.

Matthew 16:1 And the
Pharisees and Sadducees
came, and trying him
asked him to show them a
sign from heaven.
Matthew 16:2 But he
answered and said unto
them, When it is evening,
ye say, It will be fair
weather: for the heaven is
red.
Matthew 16:3 And in the
morning, It will be foul
weather to-day: for the
heaven is red and
lowering. Ye know how to
discern the face of the
heaven; but ye cannot
discern the signs of the
times.
Matthew 16:4 An evil and
adulterous generation
seeketh after a sign; and
there shall no sign be given
unto it, but the sign of
Jonah. And he left them,
and departed.
Matthew 16:5 And the
disciples came to the other
side and forgot to take
bread.
Matthew 16:6 And Jesus
said unto them, Take heed
and beware of the leaven
of the Pharisees and
Sadducees.
Matthew 16:7 And they
reasoned among
themselves, saying, We
took no bread.
Matthew 16:8 And Jesus
perceiving it said, O ye of
little faith, why reason ye
among yourselves,
because ye have no bread?
Matthew 16:9 Do ye not
yet perceive, neither
remember the five loaves
of the five thousand, and
how many baskets ye took
up?
Matthew 16:10 Neither
the seven loaves of the
four thousand, and how
many baskets ye took up?
Matthew 16:11 How is it
that ye do not perceive that
I spake not to you
concerning bread? But
beware of the leaven of the
Pharisees and Sadducees.
Matthew 16:12 Then
understood they that he
bade them not beware of
the leaven of bread, but of
the teaching of the
Pharisees and Sadducees.

Matthew 16:13 Now
when Jesus came into the
parts of Caesarea Philippi,
he asked his disciples,
saying, Who do men say
that the Son of man is?
Matthew 16:14 And they
said, Some say John the
Baptist; some, Elijah; and
others, Jeremiah, or one of
the prophets.
Matthew 16:15 He saith
unto them, But who say ye
that I am?
Matthew 16:16 And
Simon Peter answered and
said, Thou art the Christ,
the Son of the living God.

Matthew 16:20 Then
charged he the disciples
that they should tell no
man that he was the Christ.

Matthew 16:21 From
that time began Jesus to
show unto his disciples,
that he must go unto
Jerusalem, and suffer
many things of the elders
and chief priests and
scribes, and be killed, and
the third day be raised up.
Matthew 16:22 And Peter
took him, and began to
rebuke him, saying, Be it
far from thee, Lord: this
shall never be unto thee.
Matthew 16:23 But he
turned, and said unto
Peter, Get thee behind me,
Satan: thou art a
stumbling-block unto me:
for thou mindest not the
things of God, but the
things of men.
Matthew 16:24 Then
said Jesus unto his
disciples, If any man
would come after me, let
him deny himself, and take
up his cross, and follow
me.
Matthew 16:25 For
whosoever would save his
life shall lose it: and
whosoever shall lose his
life for my sake shall find
it.
Matthew 16:26 For what
shall a man be profited, if
he shall gain the whole
world, and forfeit his life?
or what shall a man give in
exchange for his life?
Matthew 16:27 For the
Son of man shall come in
the glory of his Father with
his angels; and then shall
he render unto every man
according to his deeds.

LUKELuke 9:18 And it came
to pass, as he was praying
apart, the disciples were
with him: and he asked
them, saying, Who do the
multitudes say that I am?
Luke 9:19 And they
answering said, John the
Baptist; but others say,
Elijah; and others, that one
of the old prophets is risen
again.
Luke 9:20 And he said
unto them, But who say ye
that I am? And Peter
answering said, The Christ
of God.

Luke 9:21 But he charged
them, and commanded
them to tell this to no man;

Luke 9:22 saying, The
Son of man must suffer
many things, and be
rejected of the elders and
chief priests and scribes,
and be killed, and the third
day be raised up.
Luke 9:23 And he said
unto all, If any man would
come after me, let him
deny himself, and take up
his cross daily, and follow
me.
Luke 9:24 For whosoever
would save his life shall
lose it; but whosoever shall
lose his life for my sake,
the same shall save it.
Luke 9:25 For what is a
man profited, if he gain the
whole world, and lose or
forfeit his own self?
Luke 9:26 For whosoever
shall be ashamed of me
and of my words, of him
shall the Son of man be
ashamed, when he cometh
in his own glory, and the
glory of the Father, and of
the holy angels.

The Gospel of Mark
Chapter 9

MARK
Chapter 9
1 And he said unto them,
Verily I say unto you, There
are some here of them that
stand by, who shall in no
wise taste of death, till they
see the kingdom of God
come with power.

2 And after six days Jesus
taketh with him Peter, and
James, and John, and
bringeth them up into a high
mountain apart by
themselves: and he was
transfigured before them;
3 and his garments became
glistering, exceeding white,
so as no fuller on earth can
whiten them.
4 And there appeared unto
them Elijah with Moses: and
they were talking with Jesus.
5 And Peter answereth and
saith to Jesus, Rabbi, it is
good for us to be here: and
let us make three
tabernacles; one for thee,
and one for Moses, and one
for Elijah.
6 For he knew not what to
answer; for they became
sore afraid.
7 And there came a cloud
overshadowing them: and
there came a voice out of the
cloud, This is my beloved
Son: hear ye him.
8 And suddenly looking
round about, they saw no
one any more, save Jesus
only with themselves.

9 And as they were coming
down from the mountain, he
charged them that they
should tell no man what
things they had seen, save
when the Son of man should
have risen again from the
dead.
10 And they kept the
saying, questioning among
themselves what the rising
again from the dead should
mean.
11 And they asked him,
saying, How is it that the
scribes say that Elijah must
first come?
12 And he said unto them,
Elijah indeed cometh first,
and restoreth all things: and
how is it written of the Son
of man, that he should suffer
many things and be set at
nought?
13 But I say unto you, that
Elijah is come, and they have
also done unto him
whatsoever they would, even
as it is written of him.

14 And when they came to
the disciples, they saw a
great multitude about them,
and scribes questioning with
them.
15 And straightway all the
multitude, when they saw
him, were greatly amazed,
and running to him saluted
him.
16 And he asked them,
What question ye with them?
17 And one of the multitude
answered him, Teacher, I
brought unto thee my son,
who hath a dumb spirit;
18 and wheresoever it
taketh him, it dasheth him
down: and he foameth, and
grindeth his teeth, and pineth
away: and I spake to thy
disciples that they should
cast it out; and they were not
able.
19 And he answereth them
and saith, O faithless
generation, how long shall I
be with you? how long shall I
bear with you? bring him
unto me.
20 And they brought him
unto him: and when he saw
him, straightway the spirit
tare him grievously; and he
fell on the ground, and
wallowed foaming.
21 And he asked his father,
How long time is it since this
hath come unto him? And he
said, From a child.
22 And oft-times it hath cast
him both into the fire and into
the waters, to destroy him:
but if thou canst do anything,
have compassion on us, and
help us.
23 And Jesus said unto him,
If thou canst! All things are
possible to him that
believeth.
24 Straightway the father of
the child cried out, and said,
I believe; help thou mine
unbelief.
25 And when Jesus saw
that a multitude came running
together, he rebuked the
unclean spirit, saying unto
him, Thou dumb and deaf
spirit, I command thee, come
out of him, and enter no
more into him.
26 And having cried out,
and torn him much, he came
out: and the boy became as
one dead; insomuch that the
more part said, He is dead.
27 But Jesus took him by
the hand, and raised him up;
and he arose.
28 And when he was come
into the house, his disciples
asked him privately, How is
it that we could not cast it
out?

29 And he said unto them,
This kind can come out by
nothing, save by prayer.

30 And they went forth
from thence, and passed
through Galilee; and he
would not that any man
should know it.
31 For he taught his
disciples, and said unto
them, The Son of man is
delivered up into the hands
of men, and they shall kill
him; and when he is killed,
after three days he shall rise
again.
32 But they understood not
the saying, and were afraid
to ask him.

33 And they came to
Capernaum: and when he
was in the house he asked
them, What were ye
reasoning on the way?
34 But they held their
peace: for they had disputed
one with another on the way,
who was the greatest.
35 And he sat down, and
called the twelve; and he
saith unto them, If any man
would be first, he shall be
last of all, and servant of all.
36 And he took a little child,
and set him in the midst of
them: and taking him in his
arms, he said unto them,
37 Whosoever shall receive
one of such little children in
my name, receiveth me: and
whosoever receiveth me,
receiveth not me, but him
that sent me.

38 John said unto him,
Teacher, we saw one casting
out demons in thy name; and
we forbade him, because he
followed not us.
39 But Jesus said, Forbid
him not: for there is no man
who shall do a mighty work
in my name, and be able
quickly to speak evil of me.
40 For he that is not against
us is for us.

41 For whosoever shall
give you a cup of water to
drink, because ye are
Christ’s, verily I say unto
you, he shall in no wise lose
his reward.

42 And whosoever shall
cause one of these little ones
that believe on me to
stumble, it were better for
him if a great millstone were
hanged about his neck, and
he were cast into the sea.

43 And if thy hand cause
thee to stumble, cut it off: it is
good for thee to enter into
life maimed, rather than
having thy two hands to go
into hell, into the
unquenchable fire.

44 where their worm dieth
not, and the fire is not
quenched.

45 And if thy foot cause
thee to stumble, cut it off: it is
good for thee to enter into
life halt, rather than having
thy two feet to be cast into
hell.
46 where their worm dieth
not, and the fire is not
quenched.

47 And if thine eye cause
thee to stumble, cast it out: it
is good for thee to enter into
the kingdom of God with
one eye, rather than having
two eyes to be cast into hell;

48 where their worm dieth
not, and the fire is not
quenched.
49 For every one shall be
salted with fire.

50 Salt is good: but if the
salt have lost its saltness,
wherewith will ye season it?
Have salt in yourselves, and
be at peace one with
another.

MATTHEWMatthew 16:28 Verily I say
unto you, there are some of
them that stand here, who
shall in no wise taste of
death, till they see the Son of
man coming in his kingdom.

Matthew 17:1 And after
six days Jesus taketh with
him Peter, and James, and
John his brother, and
bringeth them up into a high
mountain apart:
Matthew 17:2 and he was
transfigured before them;
and his face did shine as the
sun, and his garments
became white as the light.
Matthew 17:3 And behold,
there appeared unto them
Moses and Elijah talking
with him.
Matthew 17:4 And Peter
answered, and said unto
Jesus, Lord, it is good for us
to be here: if thou wilt, I will
make here three tabernacles;
one for thee, and one for
Moses, and one for Elijah.
Matthew 17:5 While he was
yet speaking, behold, a
bright cloud overshadowed
them: and behold, a voice
out of the cloud, saying, This
is my beloved Son, in whom
I am well pleased; hear ye
him.
Matthew 17:6 And when
the disciples heard it, they
fell on their face, and were
sore afraid.
Matthew 17:7 And Jesus
came and touched them and
said, Arise, and be not
afraid.
Matthew 17:8 And lifting up
their eyes, they saw no one,
save Jesus only.

Matthew 17:9 And as they
were coming down from the
mountain, Jesus commanded
them, saying, Tell the vision
to no man, until the Son of
man be risen from the dead.
Matthew 17:10 And his
disciples asked him, saying,
Why then say the scribes
that Elijah must first come?
Matthew 17:11 And he
answered and said, Elijah
indeed cometh, and shall
restore all things:
Matthew 17:12 but I say
into you, that Elijah is come
already, and they knew him
not, but did unto him
whatsoever they would.
Even so shall the Son of man
also suffer of them.
Matthew 17:13 Then
understood the disciples that
he spake unto them of John
the Baptist.

Matthew 17:14 And when
they were come to the
multitude, there came to him
a man, kneeling to him,
saying,
Matthew 17:15 Lord, have
mercy on my son: for he is
epileptic, and suffereth
grievously; for oft-times he
falleth into the fire, and
oft-times into the water.
Matthew 17:16 And I
brought him to thy disciples,
and they could not cure him.
Matthew 17:17 And Jesus
answered and said, O
faithless and perverse
generation, how long shall I
be with you? how long shall I
bear with you? bring him
hither to me.
Matthew 17:18 And Jesus
rebuked him; and the demon
went out of him: and the boy
was cured from that hour.
Matthew 17:19 Then came
the disciples to Jesus apart,
and said, Why could not we
cast it out?

Matthew 17:22 And while
they abode in Galilee, Jesus
said unto them, The Son of
man shall be delivered up
into the hands of men;
Matthew 17:23 and they
shall kill him, and the third
day he shall be raised up.
And they were exceeding
sorry.

Matthew 18:1 In that hour
came the disciples unto
Jesus, saying, Who then is
greatest in the kingdom of
heaven?
Matthew 18:2 And he
called to him a little child,
and set him in the midst of
them,
Matthew 18:3 and said,
Verily I say unto you, Except
ye turn, and become as little
children, ye shall in no wise
enter into the kingdom of
heaven.
Matthew 18:4 Whosoever
therefore shall humble
himself as this little child, the
same is the greatest in the
kingdom of heaven.
Matthew 18:5 And whoso
shall receive one such little
child in my name receiveth
me:

Matthew 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 18:6 But whoso
shall cause one of these little
ones that believe on me to
stumble, it is profitable for
him that a great millstone
should be hanged about his
neck, and that he should be
sunk in the depth of the sea.

Matthew 5:30 And if thy
right hand causeth thee to
stumble, cut it off, and cast it
from thee: for it is profitable
for thee that one of thy
members should perish, and
not thy whole body go into
hell.
Matthew 18:8 And if thy
hand or thy foot causeth thee
to stumble, cut it off, and
cast it from thee: it is good
for thee to enter into life
maimed or halt, rather than
having two hands or two feet
to be cast into the eternal
fire.

Matthew 5:29 And if thy
right eye causeth thee to
stumble, pluck it out, and
cast it from thee: for it is
profitable for thee that one of
thy members should perish,
and not thy whole body be
cast into hell.
Matthew 18:9 And if thine
eye causeth thee to stumble,
pluck it out, and cast it from
thee: it is good for thee to
enter into life with one eye,
rather than having two eyes
to be cast into the hell of fire.

Matthew 5:13 Ye are the
salt of the earth: but if the salt
have lost its savor,
wherewith shall it be salted?
it is thenceforth good for
nothing, but to be cast out
and trodden under foot of
men.

LUKELuke 9:27 But I tell you of a
truth, There are some of
them that stand here, who
shall in no wise taste of
death, till they see the
kingdom of God.

Luke 9:28 And it came to
pass about eight days after
these sayings, that he took
with him Peter and John and
James, and went up into the
mountain to pray.
Luke 9:29 And as he was
praying, the fashion of his
countenance was altered,
and his raiment became
white and dazzling.
Luke 9:30 And behold,
there talked with him two
men, who were Moses and
Elijah;
Luke 9:31 who appeared in
glory, and spake of his
decease which he was about
to accomplish at Jerusalem.
Luke 9:32 Now Peter and
they that were with him were
heavy with sleep: but when
they were fully awake, they
saw his glory, and the two
men that stood with him.
Luke 9:33 And it came to
pass, as they were parting
from him, Peter said unto
Jesus, Master, it is good for
us to be here: and let us
make three tabernacles; one
for thee, and one for Moses,
and one for Elijah: not
knowing what he said.
Luke 9:34 And while he
said these things, there came
a cloud, and overshadowed
them: and they feared as they
entered into the cloud.
Luke 9:35 And a voice
came out of the cloud,
saying, This is my Son, my
chosen: hear ye him.
Luke 9:36 And when the
voice came, Jesus was found
alone. And they held their
peace, and told no man in
those days any of the things
which they had seen.

Luke 9:37 And it came to
pass, on the next day, when
they were come down from
the mountain, a great
multitude met him.
Luke 9:38 And behold, a
man from the multitude cried,
saying, Teacher, I beseech
thee to look upon my son;
for he is mine only child:
Luke 9:39 and behold, a
spirit taketh him, and he
suddenly crieth out; and it
teareth him that he foameth,
and it hardly departeth from
him, bruising him sorely.
Luke 9:40 And I besought
thy disciples to cast it out;
and they could not.
Luke 9:41 And Jesus
answered and said, O
faithless and perverse
generation, how long shall I
be with you, and bear with
you? bring hither thy son.
Luke 9:42 And as he was
yet a coming, the demon
dashed him down, and tare
him grievously. But Jesus
rebuked the unclean spirit,
and healed the boy, and
gave him back to his father.

Luke 9:43 And they were
all astonished at the majesty
of God. But while all were
marvelling at all the things
which he did, he said unto
his disciples,
Luke 9:44 Let these words
sink into your ears: for the
Son of man shall be
delivered up into the hands
of men.
Luke 9:45 But they
understood not this saying,
and it was concealed from
them, that they should not
perceive it; and they were
afraid to ask him about this
saying.

Luke 9:46 And there arose
a reasoning among them,
which of them was the
greatest.
Luke 9:47 But when Jesus
saw the reasoning of their
heart, he took a little child,
and set him by his side,
Luke 9:48 and said unto
them, Whosoever shall
receive this little child in my
name receiveth me: and
whosoever shall receive me
receiveth him that sent me:
for he that is least among you
all, the same is great.

Luke 9:49 And John
answered and said, Master,
we saw one casting out
demons in thy name; and we
forbade him, because he
followeth not with us.
Luke 9:50 But Jesus said
unto him, Forbid him not: for
he that is not against you is
for you.

Luke 17:2 It were well for
him if a millstone were
hanged about his neck, and
he were thrown into the sea,
rather than that he should
cause one of these little ones
to stumble.

Luke 14:34 Salt therefore is
good: but if even the salt
have lost its savor,
wherewith shall it be
seasoned?

Chapter 10

MARK
Chapter 10
1 And he arose from
thence and cometh into the
borders of Judaea and
beyond the Jordan: and
multitudes come together
unto him again; and, as he
was wont, he taught them
again.
2 And there came unto him
Pharisees, and asked him, Is
it lawful for a man to put
away his wife? trying him.
3 And he answered and
said unto them, What did
Moses command you?
4 And they said, Moses
suffered to write a bill of
divorcement, and to put her
away.
5 But Jesus said unto them,
For your hardness of heart
he wrote you this
commandment.
6 But from the beginning of
the creation, Male and
female made he them.
7 For this cause shall a man
leave his father and mother,
and shall cleave to his wife;
8 and the two shall become
one flesh: so that they are no
more two, but one flesh.
9 What therefore God hath
joined together, let not man
put asunder.
10 And in the house the
disciples asked him again of
this matter.
11 And he saith unto them,
Whosoever shall put away
his wife, and marry another,
committeth adultery against
her:
12 and if she herself shall
put away her husband, and
marry another, she
committeth adultery.

13 And they were bringing
unto him little children, that
he should touch them: and
the disciples rebuked them.
14 But when Jesus saw it,
he was moved with
indignation, and said unto
them, Suffer the little children
to come unto me; forbid
them not: for to such
belongeth the kingdom of
God.
15 Verily I say unto you,
Whosoever shall not receive
the kingdom of God as a
little child, he shall in no wise
enter therein.
16 And he took them in his
arms, and blessed them,
laying his hands upon them.

17 And as he was going
forth into the way, there ran
one to him, and kneeled to
him, and asked him, Good
Teacher, what shall I do that
I may inherit eternal life?
18 And Jesus said unto him,
Why callest thou me good?
none is good save one, even
God.
19 Thou knowest the
commandments, Do not kill,
Do not commit adultery, Do
not steal, Do not bear false
witness, Do not defraud,
Honor thy father and mother.
20 And he said unto him,
Teacher, all these things have
I observed from my youth.
21 And Jesus looking upon
him loved him, and said unto
him, One thing thou lackest:
go, sell whatsoever thou
hast, and give to the poor,
and thou shalt have treasure
in heaven: and come, follow
me.
22 But his countenance fell
at the saying, and he went
away sorrowful: for he was
one that had great
possessions.
23 And Jesus looked round
about, and saith unto his
disciples, How hardly shall
they that have riches enter
into the kingdom of God!
24 And the disciples were
amazed at his words. But
Jesus answereth again, and
saith unto them, Children,
how hard is it for them that
trust in riches to enter into
the kingdom of God!
25 It is easier for a camel to
go through a needle’s eye,
than for a rich man to enter
into the kingdom of God.
26 And they were
astonished exceedingly,
saying unto him, Then who
can be saved?
27 Jesus looking upon them
saith, With men it is
impossible, but not with
God: for all things are
possible with God.
28 Peter began to say unto
him, Lo, we have left all, and
have followed thee.
29 Jesus said, Verily I say
unto you, There is no man
that hath left house, or
brethren, or sisters, or
mother, or father, or
children, or lands, for my
sake, and for the gospel’s
sake,
30 but he shall receive a
hundredfold now in this time,
houses, and brethren, and
sisters, and mothers, and
children, and lands, with
persecutions; and in the
world to come eternal life.
31 But many that are first
shall be last; and the last first.

32 And they were on the
way, going up to Jerusalem;
and Jesus was going before
them: and they were amazed;
and they that followed were
afraid. And he took again the
twelve, and began to tell
them the things that were to
happen unto him,
33 saying, Behold, we go
up to Jerusalem; and the Son
of man shall be delivered
unto the chief priests and the
scribes; and they shall
condemn him to death, and
shall deliver him unto the
Gentiles:
34 and they shall mock him,
and shall spit upon him, and
shall scourge him, and shall
kill him; and after three days
he shall rise again.

35 And there come near
unto him James and John,
the sons of Zebedee, saying
unto him, Teacher, we would
that thou shouldest do for us
whatsoever we shall ask of
thee.
36 And he said unto them,
What would ye that I should
do for you?
37 And they said unto him,
Grant unto us that we may
sit, one on thy right hand,
and one on thy left hand, in
thy glory.
38 But Jesus said unto
them, Ye know not what ye
ask. Are ye able to drink the
cup that I drink? or to be
baptized with the baptism
that I am baptized with?
39 And they said unto him,
We are able. And Jesus said
unto them, The cup that I
drink ye shall drink; and with
the baptism that I am
baptized withal shall ye be
baptized:
40 but to sit on my right
hand or on my left hand is
not mine to give; but it is for
them for whom it hath been
prepared.
41 And when the ten heard
it, they began to be moved
with indignation concerning
James and John.
42 And Jesus called them to
him, and saith unto them, Ye
know that they who are
accounted to rule over the
Gentiles lord it over them;
and their great ones exercise
authority over them.
43 But it is not so among
you: but whosoever would
become great among you,
shall be your minister;
44 and whosoever would
be first among you, shall be
servant of all.
45 For the Son of man also
came not to be ministered
unto, but to minister, and to
give his life a ransom for
many.

46 And they come to
Jericho: and as he went out
from Jericho, with his
disciples and a great
multitude, the son of
Timaeus, Bartimaeus, a blind
beggar, was sitting by the
way side.
47 And when he heard that
it was Jesus the Nazarene,
he began to cry out, and say,
Jesus, thou son of David,
have mercy on me.
48 And many rebuked him,
that he should hold his
peace: but he cried out the
more a great deal, Thou son
of David, have mercy on me.
49 And Jesus stood still,
and said, Call ye him. And
they call the blind man,
saying unto him, Be of good
cheer: rise, he calleth thee.
50 And he, casting away his
garment, sprang up, and
came to Jesus.
51 And Jesus answered
him, and said, What wilt thou
that I should do unto thee?
And the blind man said unto
him, Rabboni, that I may
receive my sight.
52 And Jesus said unto him,
Go thy way; thy faith hath
made thee whole. And
straightway he received his
sight, and followed him in the
way.

MATTHEWMatthew 19:1 And it came
to pass when Jesus had
finished these words, he
departed from Galilee, and
came into the borders of
Judaea beyond the Jordan;
Matthew 19:2 and great
multitudes followed him; and
he healed them there.
Matthew 19:3 And there
came unto him Pharisees,
trying him, and saying, Is it
lawful for a man to put away
his wife for every cause?
Matthew 19:4 And he
answered and said, Have ye
not read, that he who made
them from the beginning
made them male and female,
Matthew 19:5 and said, For
this cause shall a man leave
his father and mother, and
shall cleave to his wife; and
the two shall become one
flesh?
Matthew 19:6 So that they
are no more two, but one
flesh. What therefore God
hath joined together, let not
man put asunder.
Matthew 19:7 They say
unto him, Why then did
Moses command to give a
bill of divorcement, and to
put her away?
Matthew 19:8 He saith unto
them, Moses for your
hardness of heart suffered
you to put away your wives:
but from the beginning it hath
not been so.
Matthew 19:9 And I say
unto you, Whosoever shall
put away his wife, except for
fornication, and shall marry
another, committeth adultery:
and he that marrieth her
when she is put away
committeth adultery.

Matthew 19:13 Then were
there brought unto him little
children, that he should lay
his hands on them, and pray:
and the disciples rebuked
them.
Matthew 19:14 But Jesus
said, Suffer the little children,
and forbid them not, to come
unto me: for to such
belongeth the kingdom of
heaven.
Matthew 19:15 And he laid
his hands on them, and
departed thence.

Matthew 19:16 And
behold, one came to him and
said, Teacher, what good
thing shall I do, that I may
have eternal life?
Matthew 19:17 And he said
unto him, Why askest thou
me concerning that which is
good? One there is who is
good: but if thou wouldest
enter into life, keep the
commandments.
Matthew 19:18 He saith
unto him, Which? And Jesus
said, Thou shalt not kill,
Thou shalt not commit
adultery, Thou shalt not
steal, Thou shalt not bear
false witness,
Matthew 19:19 Honor thy
father and mother; and, Thou
shalt love thy neighbor as
thyself.
Matthew 19:20 The young
man saith unto him, All these
things have I observed: what
lack I yet?
Matthew 19:21 Jesus said
unto him, If thou wouldest be
perfect, go, sell that which
thou hast, and give to the
poor, and thou shalt have
treasure in heaven: and
come, follow me.
Matthew 19:22 But when
the young man heard the
saying, he went away
sorrowful; for he was one
that had great possessions.
Matthew 19:23 And Jesus
said unto his disciples, Verily
I say unto you, It is hard for
a rich man to enter into the
kingdom of heaven.
Matthew 19:24 And again I
say unto you, It is easier for
a camel to go through a
needle’s eye, than for a rich
man to enter into the
kingdom of God.
Matthew 19:25 And when
the disciples heard it, they
were astonished exceedingly,
saying, Who then can be
saved?
Matthew 19:26 And Jesus
looking upon them said to
them, With men this is
impossible; but with God all
things are possible.
Matthew 19:27 Then
answered Peter and said
unto him, Lo, we have left
all, and followed thee; what
then shall we have?
Matthew 19:28 And Jesus
said unto them, Verily I say
unto you, that ye who have
followed me, in the
regeneration when the Son
of man shall sit on the throne
of his glory, ye also shall sit
upon twelve thrones, judging
the twelve tribes of Israel.
Matthew 19:29 And every
one that hath left houses, or
brethren, or sisters, or father,
or mother, or children, or
lands, for my name’s sake,
shall receive a hundredfold,
and shall inherit eternal life.
Matthew 19:30 But many
shall be last that are first; and
first that are last.

Matthew 20:17 And as
Jesus was going up to
Jerusalem, he took the
twelve disciples apart, and
on the way he said unto
them,
Matthew 20:18 Behold, we
go up to Jerusalem; and the
Son of man shall be
delivered unto the chief
priests and scribes; and they
shall condemn him to death,
Matthew 20:19 and shall
deliver him unto the Gentiles
to mock, and to scourge,
and to crucify: and the third
day he shall be raised up.

Matthew 20:20 Then came
to him the mother of the sons
of Zebedee with her sons,
worshipping him, and asking
a certain thing of him.
Matthew 20:21 And he said
unto her, What wouldest
thou? She saith unto him,
Command that these my two
sons may sit, one on thy right
hand, and one on thy left
hand, in thy kingdom.
Matthew 20:22 But Jesus
answered and said, Ye
know not what ye ask. Are
ye able to drink the cup that
I am about to drink? They
say unto him, We are able.
Matthew 20:23 He saith
unto them, My cup indeed
ye shall drink: but to sit on
my right hand, and on my left
hand, is not mine to give; but
it is for them for whom it
hath been prepared of my
Father.
Matthew 20:24 And when
the ten heard it, they were
moved with indignation
concerning the two brethren.
Matthew 20:25 But Jesus
called them unto him, and
said, Ye know that the rulers
of the Gentiles lord it over
them, and their great ones
exercise authority over them.
Matthew 20:26 Not so shall
it be among you: but
whosoever would become
great among you shall be
your minister;
Matthew 20:27 and
whosoever would be first
among you shall be your
servant:
Matthew 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.

Matthew 20:29 And as
they went out from Jericho, a
great multitude followed him.
Matthew 20:30 And
behold, two blind men sitting
by the way side, when they
heard that Jesus was passing
by, cried out, saying, Lord,
have mercy on us, thou son
of David.
Matthew 20:31 And the
multitude rebuked them, that
they should hold their peace:
but they cried out the more,
saying, Lord, have mercy on
us, thou son of David.
Matthew 20:32 And Jesus
stood still, and called them,
and said, What will ye that I
should do unto you?
Matthew 20:33 They say
unto him, Lord, that our eyes
may be opened.
Matthew 20:34 And Jesus,
being moved with
compassion, touched their
eyes; and straightway they
received their sight, and
followed him.

LUKELuke 18:15 And they were
bringing unto him also their
babes, that he should touch
them: but when the disciples
saw it, they rebuked them.
Luke 18:16 But Jesus called
them unto him, saying, Suffer
the little children to come
unto me, and forbid them
not: for to such belongeth the
kingdom of God.
Luke 18:17 Verily I say
unto you, Whosoever shall
not receive the kingdom of
God as a little child, he shall
in no wise enter therein.

Luke 18:18 And a certain
ruler asked him, saying,
Good Teacher, what shall I
do to inherit eternal life?
Luke 18:19 And Jesus said
unto him, Why callest thou
me good? none is good,
save one, even God.
Luke 18:20 Thou knowest
the commandments, Do not
commit adultery, Do not kill,
Do not steal, Do not bear
false witness, Honor thy
father and mother.
Luke 18:21 And he said, All
these things have I observed
from my youth up.
Luke 18:22 And when
Jesus heard it, he said unto
him, One thing thou lackest
yet: sell all that thou hast, and
distribute unto the poor, and
thou shalt have treasure in
heaven: and come, follow
me.
Luke 18:23 But when he
heard these things, he
became exceeding
sorrowful; for he was very
rich.
Luke 18:24 And Jesus
seeing him said, How hardly
shall they that have riches
enter into the kingdom of
God!
Luke 18:25 For it is easier
for a camel to enter in
through a needle’s eye, than
for a rich man to enter into
the kingdom of God.
Luke 18:26 And they that
heard it said, Then who can
be saved?
Luke 18:27 But he said,
The things which are
impossible with men are
possible with God.
Luke 18:28 And Peter said,
Lo, we have left our own,
and followed thee.
Luke 18:29 And he said
unto them, Verily I say unto
you, There is no man that
hath left house, or wife, or
brethren, or parents, or
children, for the kingdom of
God’s sake,
Luke 18:30 who shall not
receive manifold more in this
time, and in the world to
come eternal life.

Luke 18:31 And he took
unto him the twelve, and said
unto them, Behold, we go up
to Jerusalem, and all the
things that are written
through the prophets shall be
accomplished unto the Son
of man.
Luke 18:32 For he shall be
delivered up unto the
Gentiles, and shall be
mocked, and shamefully
treated, and spit upon:
Luke 18:33 and they shall
scourge and kill him: and the
third day he shall rise again.

Luke 18:35 And it came to
pass, as he drew nigh unto
Jericho, a certain blind man
sat by the way side begging:
Luke 18:36 and hearing a
multitude going by, he
inquired what this meant.
Luke 18:37 And they told
him, that Jesus of Nazareth
passeth by.
Luke 18:38 And he cried,
saying, Jesus, thou son of
David, have mercy on me.
Luke 18:39 And they that
went before rebuked him,
that he should hold his
peace: but he cried out the
more a great deal, Thou son
of David, have mercy on me.
Luke 18:40 And Jesus
stood, and commanded him
to be brought unto him: and
when he was come near, he
asked him,
Luke 18:41 What wilt thou
that I should do unto thee?
And he said, Lord, that I
may receive my sight.
Luke 18:42 And Jesus said
unto him, Receive thy sight;
thy faith hath made thee
whole.
Luke 18:43 And
immediately he received his
sight, and followed him,
glorifying God: and all the
people, when they saw it,
gave praise unto God.

Chapter 11

MARK
Chapter 11
1 And when they draw
nigh unto Jerusalem, unto
Bethphage and Bethany, at
the mount of Olives, he
sendeth two of his disciples,
2 and saith unto them, Go
your way into the village that
is over against you: and
straightway as ye enter into
it, ye shall find a colt tied,
whereon no man ever yet
sat; loose him, and bring him.
3 And if any one say unto
you, Why do ye this? say ye,
The Lord hath need of him;
and straightway he will send
him back hither.
4 And they went away, and
found a colt tied at the door
without in the open street;
and they loose him.
5 And certain of them that
stood there said unto them,
What do ye, loosing the
colt?
6 And they said unto them
even as Jesus had said: and
they let them go.
7 And they bring the colt
unto Jesus, and cast on him
their garments; and he sat
upon him.
8 And many spread their
garments upon the way; and
others branches, which they
had cut from the fields.
9 And they that went
before, and they that
followed, cried, Hosanna;
Blessed is he that cometh in
the name of the Lord:
10 Blessed is the kingdom
that cometh, the kingdom of
our father David: Hosanna in
the highest.

11 And he entered into
Jerusalem, into the temple;
and when he had looked
round about upon all things,
it being now eventide, he
went out unto Bethany with
the twelve.

12 And on the morrow,
when they were come out
from Bethany, he hungered.
13 And seeing a fig tree afar
off having leaves, he came, if
haply he might find anything
thereon: and when he came
to it, he found nothing but
leaves; for it was not the
season of figs.
14 And he answered and
said unto it, No man eat fruit
from thee henceforward for
ever. And his disciples heard
it.

15 And they come to
Jerusalem: and he entered
into the temple, and began to
cast out them that sold and
them that bought in the
temple, and overthrew the
tables of the
money-changers, and the
seats of them that sold the
doves;
16 and he would not suffer
that any man should carry a
vessel through the temple.
17 And he taught, and said
unto them, Is it not written,
My house shall be called a
house of prayer for all the
nations? but ye have made it
a den of robbers.
18 And the chief priests and
the scribes heard it, and
sought how they might
destroy him: for they feared
him, for all the multitude was
astonished at his teaching.

19 And every evening he
went forth out of the city.

20 And as they passed by in
the morning, they saw the fig
tree withered away from the
roots.
21 And Peter calling to
remembrance saith unto him,
Rabbi, behold, the fig tree
which thou cursedst is
withered away.
22 And Jesus answering
saith unto them, Have faith in
God.
23 Verily I say unto you,
Whosoever shall say unto
this mountain, Be thou taken
up and cast into the sea; and
shall not doubt in his heart,
but shall believe that what he
saith cometh to pass; he shall
have it.
24 Therefore I say unto
you, All things whatsoever
ye pray and ask for, believe
that ye receive them, and ye
shall have them.

25 And whensoever ye
stand praying, forgive, if ye
have aught against any one;
that your Father also who is
in heaven may forgive you
your trespasses.

26 But if ye do not forgive,
neither will your Father who
is in heaven forgive your
trespasses.

27 And they come again to
Jerusalem: and as he was
walking in the temple, there
come to him the chief priests,
and the scribes, and the
elders;
28 and they said unto him,
By what authority doest thou
these things? or who gave
thee this authority to do
these things?
29 And Jesus said unto
them, I will ask of you one
question, and answer me,
and I will tell you by what
authority I do these things.
30 The baptism of John,
was it from heaven, or from
men? answer me.
31 And they reasoned with
themselves, saying, If we
shall say, From heaven; He
will say, Why then did ye not
believe him?
32 But should we say, From
men they feared the
people: for all verily held
John to be a prophet.
33 And they answered
Jesus and say, We know
not. And Jesus saith unto
them, Neither tell I you by
what authority I do these
things.

MATTHEWMatthew 21:1 And when
they drew nigh unto
Jerusalem, and came unto
Bethphage, unto the mount
of Olives, then Jesus sent
two disciples,
Matthew 21:2 saying unto
them, Go into the village that
is over against you, and
straightway ye shall find an
ass tied, and a colt with her:
loose them, and bring them
unto me.
Matthew 21:3 And if any
one say aught unto you, ye
shall say, The Lord hath
need of them; and
straightway he will send
them.
Matthew 21:4 Now this is
come to pass, that it might
be fulfilled which was
spoken through the prophet,
saying,
Matthew 21:5 Tell ye the
daughter of Zion, Behold,
thy King cometh unto thee,
Meek, and riding upon an
ass, And upon a colt the foal
of an ass.
Matthew 21:6 And the
disciples went, and did even
as Jesus appointed them,
Matthew 21:7 and brought
the ass, and the colt, and put
on them their garments; and
he sat thereon.
Matthew 21:8 And the most
part of the multitude spread
their garments in the way;
and others cut branches from
the trees, and spread them in
the way.
Matthew 21:9 And the
multitudes that went before
him, and that followed, cried,
saying, Hosanna to the son
of David: Blessed is he that
cometh in the name of the
Lord; Hosanna in the
highest.

Matthew 21:17 And he left
them, and went forth out of
the city to Bethany, and
lodged there.

Matthew 21:18 Now in the
morning as he returned to the
city, he hungered.
Matthew 21:19 And seeing
a fig tree by the way side, he
came to it, and found nothing
thereon, but leaves only; and
he saith unto it, Let there be
no fruit from thee
henceforward for ever. And
immediately the fig tree
withered away.
Matthew 21:20 And when
the disciples saw it, they
marvelled, saying, How did
the fig tree immediately
wither away?
Matthew 21:21 And Jesus
answered and said unto
them, Verily I say unto you,
If ye have faith, and doubt
not, ye shall not only do
what is done to the fig tree,
but even if ye shall say unto
this mountain, Be thou taken
up and cast into the sea, it
shall be done.
Matthew 21:22 And all
things, whatsoever ye shall
ask in prayer, believing, ye
shall receive.

Matthew 21:12 And Jesus
entered into the temple of
God, and cast out all them
that sold and bought in the
temple, and overthrew the
tables of the
money-changers, and the
seats of them that sold the
doves;
Matthew 21:13 and he saith
unto them, It is written, My
house shall be called a house
of prayer: but ye make it a
den of robbers.
Matthew 21:14 And the
blind and the lame came to
him in the temple; and he
healed them.
Matthew 21:15 But when
the chief priests and the
scribes saw the wonderful
things that he did, and the
children that were crying in
the temple and saying,
Hosanna to the son of
David; they were moved
with indignation,
Matthew 21:16 and said
unto him, Hearest thou what
these are saying? And Jesus
saith unto them, Yea: did ye
never read, Out of the mouth
of babes and sucklings thou
has perfected praise?

Matthew 6:14 For if ye
forgive men their trespasses,
your heavenly Father will
also forgive you.

Matthew 6:15 But if ye
forgive not men their
trespasses, neither will your
Father forgive your
trespasses.

Matthew 21:23 And when
he was come into the temple,
the chief priests and the
elders of the people came
unto him as he was teaching,
and said, By what authority
doest thou these things? and
who gave thee this authority?
Matthew 21:24 And Jesus
answered and said unto
them, I also will ask you one
question, which if ye tell me,
I likewise will tell you by
what authority I do these
things.
Matthew 21:25 The baptism
of John, whence was it?
from heaven or from men?
And they reasoned with
themselves, saying, If we
shall say, From heaven; he
will say unto us, Why then
did ye not believe him?
Matthew 21:26 But if we
shall say, From men; we fear
the multitude; for all hold
John as a prophet.
Matthew 21:27 And they
answered Jesus, and said,
We know not. He also said
unto them, Neither tell I you
by what authority I do these
things.

LUKELuke 19:29 And it came to
pass, when he drew nigh
unto Bethphage and
Bethany, at the mount that is
called Olivet, he sent two of
the disciples,
Luke 19:30 saying, Go your
way into the village over
against you; in which as ye
enter ye shall find a colt tied,
whereon no man ever yet
sat: loose him, and bring him.
Luke 19:31 And if any one
ask you, Why do ye loose
him? thus shall ye say, The
Lord hath need of him.
Luke 19:32 And they that
were sent went away, and
found even as he had said
unto them.
Luke 19:33 And as they
were loosing the colt, the
owners thereof said unto
them, Why loose ye the colt?
Luke 19:34 And they said,
The Lord hath need of him.
Luke 19:35 And they
brought him to Jesus: and
they threw their garments
upon the colt, and set Jesus
thereon.
Luke 19:36 And as he
went, they spread their
garments in the way.
Luke 19:37 And as he was
now drawing nigh, even at
the descent of the mount of
Olives, the whole multitude
of the disciples began to
rejoice and praise God with
a loud voice for all the
mighty works which they had
seen;
Luke 19:38 saying, Blessed
is the King that cometh in the
name of the Lord: peace in
heaven, and glory in the
highest.

Luke 19:45 And he entered
into the temple, and began to
cast out them that sold,
Luke 19:46 saying unto
them, It is written, And my
house shall be a house of
prayer: but ye have made it a
den of robbers.
Luke 19:47 And he was
teaching daily in the temple.
But the chief priests and the
scribes and the principal men
of the people sought to
destroy him:

Luke 21:37 And every day
he was teaching in the
temple; and every night he
went out, and lodged in the
mount that is called Olivet.

Luke 20:1 And it came to
pass, on one of the days, as
he was teaching the people
in the temple, and preaching
the gospel, there came upon
him the chief priests and the
scribes with the elders;
Luke 20:2 and they spake,
saying unto him, Tell us: By
what authority doest thou
these things? or who is he
that gave thee this authority?
Luke 20:3 And he
answered and said unto
them, I also will ask you a
question; and tell me:
Luke 20:4 The baptism of
John, was it from heaven, or
from men?
Luke 20:5 And they
reasoned with themselves,
saying, If we shall say, From
heaven; he will say, Why did
ye not believe him?
Luke 20:6 But if we shall
say, From men; all the
people will stone us: for they
are persuaded that John was
a prophet.
Luke 20:7 And they
answered, that they knew
not whence it was.
Luke 20:8 And Jesus said
unto them, Neither tell I you
by what authority I do these
things.

The Gospel of Mark
Chapter 12

MARK
Chapter 12
1 And he began to speak
unto them in parables. A
man planted a vineyard, and
set a hedge about it, and
digged a pit for the
winepress, and built a tower,
and let it out to husbandmen,
and went into another
country.
2 And at the season he sent
to the husbandmen a servant,
that he might receive from
the husbandmen of the fruits
of the vineyard.
3 And they took him, and
beat him, and sent him away
empty.
4 And again he sent unto
them another servant; and
him they wounded in the
head, and handled
shamefully.
5 And he sent another; and
him they killed: and many
others; beating some, and
killing some.
6 He had yet one, a beloved
son: he sent him last unto
them, saying, They will
reverence my son.
7 But those husbandmen
said among themselves, This
is the heir; come, let us kill
him, and the inheritance shall
be ours.
8 And they took him, and
killed him, and cast him forth
out of the vineyard.
9 What therefore will the
lord of the vineyard do? he
will come and destroy the
husbandmen, and will give
the vineyard unto others.
10 Have ye not read even
this scripture: The stone
which the builders rejected,
The same was made the
head of the corner;
11 This was from the Lord,
And it is marvellous in our
eyes?
12 And they sought to lay
hold on him; and they feared
the multitude; for they
perceived that he spake the
parable against them: and
they left him, and went away.

13 And they send unto him
certain of the Pharisees and
of the Herodians, that they
might catch him in talk.
14 And when they were
come, they say unto him,
Teacher, we know that thou
art true, and carest not for
any one; for thou regardest
not the person of men, but of
a truth teachest the way of
God: Is it lawful to give
tribute unto Caesar, or not?
15 Shall we give, or shall
we not give? But he,
knowing their hypocrisy, said
unto them, Why make ye
trial of me? bring me a
denarius, that I may see it.
16 And they brought it. And
he saith unto them, Whose is
this image and
superscription? And they
said unto him, Caesar’s.
17 And Jesus said unto
them, Render unto Caesar
the things that are Caesar’s,
and unto God the things that
are God’s. And they
marvelled greatly at him.

18 And there come unto
him Sadducees, who say that
there is no resurrection; and
they asked him, saying,
19 Teacher, Moses wrote
unto us, If a man’s brother
die, and leave a wife behind
him, and leave no child, that
his brother should take his
wife, and raise up seed unto
his brother.
20 There were seven
brethren: and the first took a
wife, and dying left no seed;
21 and the second took her,
and died, leaving no seed
behind him; and the third
likewise:
22 and the seven left no
seed. Last of all the woman
also died.
23 In the resurrection
whose wife shall she be of
them? for the seven had her
to wife.
24 Jesus said unto them, Is
it not for this cause that ye
err, that ye know not the
scriptures, nor the power of
God?
25 For when they shall rise
from the dead, they neither
marry, nor are given in
marriage; but are as angels in
heaven.
26 But as touching the
dead, that they are raised;
have ye not read in the book
of Moses, in the place
concerning the Bush, how
God spake unto him, saying,
I am the God of Abraham,
and the God of Isaac, and
the God of Jacob?
27 He is not the God of the
dead, but of the living: ye do
greatly err.

28 And one of the scribes
came, and heard them
questioning together, and
knowing that he had
answered them well, asked
him, What commandment is
the first of all?
29 Jesus answered, The first
is, Hear, O Israel; The Lord
our God, the Lord is one:
30 and thou shalt love the
Lord thy God with all thy
heart, and with all thy soul,
and with all thy mind, and
with all thy strength.
31 The second is this, Thou
shalt love thy neighbor as
thyself. There is none other
commandment greater than
these.
32 And the scribe said unto
him, Of a truth, Teacher,
thou hast well said that he is
one; and there is none other
but he:
33 and to love him with all
the heart, and with all the
understanding, and with all
the strength, and to love his
neighbor as himself, is much
more than all whole
burnt-offerings and
sacrifices.
34 And when Jesus saw
that he answered discreetly,
he said unto him, Thou art
not far from the kingdom of
God. And no man after that
durst ask him any question.

35 And Jesus answered
and said, as he taught in the
temple, How say the scribes
that the Christ is the son of
David?
36 David himself said in the
Holy Spirit, The Lord said
unto my Lord, Sit thou on
my right hand, Till I make
thine enemies the footstool of
thy feet.
37 David himself calleth him
Lord; and whence is he his
son? And the common
people heard him gladly.

38 And in his teaching he
said, Beware of the scribes,
who desire to walk in long
robes, and to have
salutations in the
marketplaces,
39 and chief seats in the
synagogues, and chief places
at feasts:
40 they that devour
widows’ houses, and for a
pretence make long prayers;
these shall receive greater
condemnation.

41 And he sat down over
against the treasury, and
beheld how the multitude
cast money into the treasury:
and many that were rich cast
in much.
42 And there came a poor
widow, and she cast in two
mites, which make a farthing.
43 And he called unto him
his disciples, and said unto
them, Verily I say unto you,
This poor widow cast in
more than all they that are
casting into the treasury:
44 for they all did cast in of
their superfluity; but she of
her want did cast in all that
she had, even all her living.

MATTHEWMatthew 21:33 Hear
another parable: There was a
man that was a householder,
who planted a vineyard, and
set a hedge about it, and
digged a winepress in it, and
built a tower, and let it out to
husbandmen, and went into
another country.
Matthew 21:34 And when
the season of the fruits drew
near, he sent his servants to
the husbandmen, to receive
his fruits.
Matthew 21:35 And the
husbandmen took his
servants, and beat one, and
killed another, and stoned
another.
Matthew 21:36 Again, he
sent other servants more
than the first: and they did
unto them in like manner.
Matthew 21:37 But
afterward he sent unto them
his son, saying, They will
reverence my son.
Matthew 21:38 But the
husbandmen, when they saw
the son, said among
themselves, This is the heir;
come, let us kill him, and
take his inheritance.
Matthew 21:39 And they
took him, and cast him forth
out of the vineyard, and
killed him.
Matthew 21:40 When
therefore the lord of the
vineyard shall come, what
will he do unto those
husbandmen?
Matthew 21:41 They say
unto him, He will miserably
destroy those miserable men,
and will let out the vineyard
unto other husbandmen, who
shall render him the fruits in
their seasons.
Matthew 21:42 Jesus saith
unto them, Did ye never read
in the scriptures, The stone
which the builders rejected,
The same was made the
head of the corner; This was
from the Lord, And it is
marvelous in our eyes?
Matthew 21:43 Therefore
say I unto you, The kingdom
of God shall be taken away
from you, and shall be given
to a nation bringing forth the
fruits thereof.
Matthew 21:44 And he that
falleth on this stone shall be
broken to pieces: but on
whomsoever it shall fall, it
will scatter him as dust.
Matthew 21:45 And when
the chief priests and the
Pharisees heard his parables,
they perceived that he spake
of them.
Matthew 21:46 And when
they sought to lay hold on
him, they feared the
multitudes, because they
took him for a prophet.

Matthew 22:15 Then went
the Pharisees, and took
counsel how they might
ensnare him in his talk.
Matthew 22:16 And they
send to him their disciples,
with the Herodians, saying,
Teacher, we know that thou
art true, and teachest the
way of God in truth, and
carest not for any one: for
thou regardest not the
person of men.
Matthew 22:17 Tell us
therefore, What thinkest
thou? Is it lawful to give
tribute unto Caesar, or not?
Matthew 22:18 But Jesus
perceived their wickedness,
and said, Why make ye trial
of me, ye hypocrites?
Matthew 22:19 Show me
the tribute money. And they
brought unto him a denarius.
Matthew 22:20 And he
saith unto them, Whose is
this image and
superscription?
Matthew 22:21 They say
unto him, Caesar’s. Then
saith he unto them, Render
therefore unto Caesar the
things that are Caesar’s; and
unto God the things that are
God’s.
Matthew 22:22 And when
they heard it, they marvelled,
and left him, and went away.

Matthew 22:23 On that
day there came to him
Sadducees, they that say that
there is no resurrection: and
they asked him,
Matthew 22:24 saying,
Teacher, Moses said, If a
man die, having no children,
his brother shall marry his
wife, and raise up seed unto
his brother.
Matthew 22:25 Now there
were with us seven brethren:
and the first married and
deceased, and having no
seed left his wife unto his
brother;
Matthew 22:26 in like
manner the second also, and
the third, unto the seventh.
Matthew 22:27 And after
them all, the woman died.
Matthew 22:28 In the
resurrection therefore whose
wife shall she be of the
seven? for they all had her.
Matthew 22:29 But Jesus
answered and said unto
them, Ye do err, not
knowing the scriptures, nor
the power of God.
Matthew 22:30 For in the
resurrection they neither
marry, nor are given in
marriage, but are as angels in
heaven.
Matthew 22:31 But as
touching the resurrection of
the dead, have ye not read
that which was spoken unto
you by God, saying,
Matthew 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
living.
Matthew 22:33 And when
the multitudes heard it, they
were astonished at his
teaching.

Matthew 22:34 But the
Pharisees, when they heard
that he had put the
Sadducees to silence,
gathered themselves
together.
Matthew 22:35 And one of
them, a lawyer, asked him a
question, trying him:
Matthew 22:36 Teacher,
which is the great
commandment in the law?
Matthew 22:37 And he said
unto him, Thou shalt love the
Lord thy God with all thy
heart, and with all thy soul,
and with all thy mind.
Matthew 22:38 This is the
great and first
commandment.
Matthew 22:39 And a
second like unto it is this,
Thou shalt love thy neighbor
as thyself.
Matthew 22:40 On these
two commandments the
whole law hangeth, and the
prophets.

Matthew 22:41 Now while
the Pharisees were gathered
together, Jesus asked them a
question,
Matthew 22:42 saying,
What think ye of the Christ?
whose son is he? They say
unto him, The son of David.
Matthew 22:43 He saith
unto them, How then doth
David in the Spirit call him
Lord, saying,
Matthew 22:44 The Lord
said unto my Lord, Sit thou
on my right hand, Till I put
thine enemies underneath thy
feet?
Matthew 22:45 If David
then calleth him Lord, how is
he his son?
Matthew 22:46 And no one
was able to answer him a
word, neither durst any man
from that day forth ask him
any more questions.

Matthew 23:1 Then spake
Jesus to the multitudes and
to his disciples,
Matthew 23:2 saying, The
scribes and the Pharisees sit
on Moses seat:
Matthew 23:3 all things
therefore whatsoever they
bid you, these do and
observe: but do not ye after
their works; for they say,
and do not.
Matthew 23:4 Yea, they
bind heavy burdens and
grievous to be borne, and lay
them on men’s shoulders;
but they themselves will not
move them with their finger.
Matthew 23:5 But all their
works they do to be seen of
men: for they make broad
their phylacteries, and
enlarge the borders of their
garments,
Matthew 23:6 and love the
chief place at feasts, and the
chief seats in the synagogues,
Matthew 23:7 and the
salutations in the
marketplaces, and to be
called of men, Rabbi.

LUKELuke 20:9 And he began
to speak unto the people this
parable: A man planted a
vineyard, and let it out to
husbandmen, and went into
another country for a long
time.
Luke 20:10 And at the
season he sent unto the
husbandmen a servant, that
they should give him of the
fruit of the vineyard: but the
husbandmen beat him, and
sent him away empty.
Luke 20:11 And he sent yet
another servant: and him also
they beat, and handled him
shamefully, and sent him
away empty.
Luke 20:12 And he sent yet
a third: and him also they
wounded, and cast him forth.
Luke 20:13 And the lord of
the vineyard said, What shall
I do? I will send my beloved
son; it may be they will
reverence him.
Luke 20:14 But when the
husbandmen saw him, they
reasoned one with another,
saying, This is the heir; let us
kill him, that the inheritance
may be ours.
Luke 20:15 And they cast
him forth out of the vineyard,
and killed him. What
therefore will the lord of the
vineyard do unto them?
Luke 20:16 He will come
and destroy these
husbandmen, and will give
the vineyard unto others.
And when they heard it, they
said, God forbid.
Luke 20:17 But he looked
upon them, and said, What
then is this that is written,
The stone which the builders
rejected, The same was
made the head of the
corner?
Luke 20:18 Every one that
falleth on that stone shall be
broken to pieces; but on
whomsoever it shall fall, it
will scatter him as dust.
Luke 20:19 And the scribes
and the chief priests sought
to lay hands on him in that
very hour; and they feared
the people: for they
perceived that he spake this
parable against them.

Luke 20:20 And they
watched him, and sent forth
spies, who feigned
themselves to be righteous,
that they might take hold of
his speech, so as to deliver
him up to the rule and to the
authority of the governor.
Luke 20:21 And they asked
him, saying, Teacher, we
know that thou sayest and
teachest rightly, and
acceptest not the person of
any, but of a truth teachest
the way of God:
Luke 20:22 Is it lawful for
us to give tribute unto
Caesar, or not?
Luke 20:23 But he
perceived their craftiness,
and said unto them,
Luke 20:24 Show me a
denarius. Whose image and
superscription hath it? And
they said, Caesar’s.
Luke 20:25 And he said
unto them, Then render unto
Caesar the things that are
Caesar’s, and unto God the
things that are God’s.
Luke 20:26 And they were
not able to take hold of the
saying before the people:
and they marvelled at his
answer, and held their
peace.

Luke 20:27 And there
came to him certain of the
Sadducees, they that say that
there is no resurrection;
Luke 20:28 and they asked
him, saying, Teacher, Moses
wrote unto us, that if a man’s
brother die, having a wife,
and he be childless, his
brother should take the wife,
and raise up seed unto his
brother.
Luke 20:29 There were
therefore seven brethren: and
the first took a wife, and
died childless;
Luke 20:30 and the second:
Luke 20:31 and the third
took her; and likewise the
seven also left no children,
and died.
Luke 20:32 Afterward the
woman also died.
Luke 20:33 In the
resurrection therefore whose
wife of them shall she be? for
the seven had her to wife.
Luke 20:34 And Jesus said
unto them, The sons of this
world marry, and are given
in marriage:
Luke 20:35 but they that are
accounted worthy to attain
to that world, and the
resurrection from the dead,
neither marry, nor are given
in marriage:
Luke 20:36 for neither can
they die any more: for they
are equal unto the angels;
and are sons of God, being
sons of the resurrection.
Luke 20:37 But that the
dead are raised, even Moses
showed, in the place
concerning the Bush, when
he calleth the Lord the God
of Abraham, and the God of
Isaac, and the God of Jacob.
Luke 20:38 Now he is not
the God of the dead, but of
the living: for all live unto
him.

Luke 10:25 And behold, a
certain lawyer stood up and
made trial of him, saying,
Teacher, what shall I do to
inherit eternal life?
Luke 10:26 And he said
unto him, What is written in
the law? how readest thou?
Luke 10:27 And he
answering said, Thou shalt
love the Lord thy God with
all thy heart, and with all thy
soul, and with all thy
strength, and with all thy
mind; and thy neighbor as
thyself.
Luke 10:28 And he said
unto him, Thou hast
answered right: this do, and
thou shalt live.
Luke 20:39 And certain of
the scribes answering said,
Teacher, thou hast well said.

Luke 20:41 And he said
unto them, How say they
that the Christ is David’s
son?
Luke 20:42 For David
himself saith in the book of
Psalms, The Lord said unto
my Lord, Sit thou on my
right hand,
Luke 20:43 Till I make thine
enemies the footstool of thy
feet.
Luke 20:44 David therefore
calleth him Lord, and how is
he his son?

Luke 20:45 And in the
hearing of all the people he
said unto his disciples,
Luke 20:46 Beware of the
scribes, who desire to walk
in long robes, and love
salutations in the
marketplaces, and chief
seats in the synagogues, and
chief places at feasts;
Luke 20:47 who devour
widows’ houses, and for a
pretence make long prayers:
these shall receive greater
condemnation.

Luke 21:1 And he looked
up, and saw the rich men
that were casting their gifts
into the treasury.
Luke 21:2 And he saw a
certain poor widow casting
in thither two mites.
Luke 21:3 And he said, Of
a truth I say unto you, This
poor widow cast in more
than they all:
Luke 21:4 for all these did
of their superfluity cast in
unto the gifts; but she of her
want did cast in all the living
that she had.

 

THE SYNOPTIC GOSPELS COMPARED

The Gospel of Mark
Chapter 13

MARK
Chapter 13
1 And as he went forth out
of the temple, one of his
disciples saith unto him,
Teacher, behold, what
manner of stones and what
manner of buildings!
2 And Jesus said unto him,
Seest thou these great
buildings? there shall not be
left here one stone upon
another, which shall not be
thrown down.
3 And as he sat on the
mount of Olives over against
the temple, Peter and James
and John and Andrew asked
him privately,
4 Tell us, when shall these
things be? and what shall be
the sign when these things
are all about to be
accomplished?
5 And Jesus began to say
unto them, Take heed that
no man lead you astray.
6 Many shall come in my
name, saying, I am he; and
shall lead many astray.
7 And when ye shall hear of
wars and rumors of wars, be
not troubled: these things
must needs come to pass;
but the end is not yet.
8 For nation shall rise
against nation, and kingdom
against kingdom; there shall
be earthquakes in divers
places; there shall be
famines: these things are the
beginning of travail.
9 But take ye heed to
yourselves: for they shall
deliver you up to councils;
and in synagogues shall ye
be beaten; and before
governors and kings shall ye
stand for my sake, for a
testimony unto them.
10 And the gospel must first
be preached unto all the
nations.
11 And when they lead you
to judgment, and deliver you
up, be not anxious
beforehand what ye shall
speak: but whatsoever shall
be given you in that hour,
that speak ye; for it is not ye
that speak, but the Holy
Spirit.
12 And brother shall deliver
up brother to death, and the
father his child; and children
shall rise up against parents,
and cause them to be put to
death.
13 And ye shall be hated of
all men for my name’s sake:
but he that endureth to the
end, the same shall be saved.
14 But when ye see the
abomination of desolation
standing where he ought not
(let him that readeth
understand), then let them
that are in Judaea flee unto
the mountains:
15 and let him that is on the
housetop not go down, nor
enter in, to take anything out
of his house:
16 and let him that is in the
field not return back to take
his cloak.
17 But woe unto them that
are with child and to them
that give suck in those days!
18 And pray ye that it be
not in the winter.
19 For those days shall be
tribulation, such as there hath
not been the like from the
beginning of the creation
which God created until
now, and never shall be.
20 And except the Lord
had shortened the days, no
flesh would have been
saved; but for the elect’s
sake, whom he chose, he
shortened the days.
21 And then if any man shall
say unto you, Lo, here is the
Christ; or, Lo, there; believe
it not:
22 for there shall arise false
Christs and false prophets,
and shall show signs and
wonders, that they may lead
astray, if possible, the elect.
23 But take ye heed:
behold, I have told you all
things beforehand.
24 But in those days, after
that tribulation, the sun shall
be darkened, and the moon
shall not give her light,
25 and the stars shall be
falling from heaven, and the
powers that are in the
heavens shall be shaken.
26 And then shall they see
the Son of man coming in
clouds with great power and
glory.
27 And then shall he send
forth the angels, and shall
gather together his elect from
the four winds, from the
uttermost part of the earth to
the uttermost part of heaven.
28 Now from the fig tree
learn her parable: when her
branch is now become
tender, and putteth forth its
leaves, ye know that the
summer is nigh;
29 even so ye also, when ye
see these things coming to
pass, know ye that he is
nigh, even at the doors.
30 Verily I say unto you,
This generation shall not pass
away, until all these things be
accomplished.
31 Heaven and earth shall
pass away: but my words
shall not pass away.
32 But of that day or that
hour knoweth no one, not
even the angels in heaven,
neither the Son, but the
Father.
33 Take ye heed, watch
and pray: for ye know not
when the time is.
34 It is as when a man,
sojourning in another
country, having left his
house, and given authority to
his servants, to each one his
work, commanded also the
porter to watch.
35 Watch therefore: for ye
know not when the lord of
the house cometh, whether
at even, or at midnight, or at
cockcrowing, or in the
morning;
36 lest coming suddenly he
find you sleeping.
37 And what I say unto you
I say unto all, Watch.
MATTHEWMatthew 24:1 And Jesus
went out from the temple,
and was going on his way;
and his disciples came to him
to show him the buildings of
the temple.
Matthew 24:2 But he
answered and 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.
Matthew 24:3 And as he sat
on 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
the world?
Matthew 24:4 And Jesus
answered and said unto
them, Take heed that no man
lead you astray.
Matthew 24:5 For many
shall come in my name,
saying, I am the Christ; and
shall lead many astray.
Matthew 24:6 And ye shall
hear of wars and rumors of
wars; see that ye be not
troubled: for these things
must needs come to pass;
but the end is not yet.
Matthew 24:7 For nation
shall rise against nation, and
kingdom against kingdom;
and there shall be famines
and earthquakes in divers
places.
Matthew 24:8 But all these
things are the beginning of
travail.
Matthew 24:9 Then shall
they deliver you up unto
tribulation, and shall kill you:
and ye shall be hated of all
the nations for my name’s
sake.
Matthew 24:10 And then
shall many stumble, and shall
deliver up one another, and
shall hate one another.
Matthew 24:11 And many
false prophets shall arise,
and shall lead many astray.
Matthew 24:12 And
because iniquity shall be
multiplied, the love of the
many shall wax cold.
Matthew 24:13 But he that
endureth to the end, the
same shall be saved.
Matthew 24:14 And this
gospel of the kingdom shall
be preached in the whole
world for a testimony unto all
the nations; and then shall the
end come.
Matthew 24:15 When
therefore ye see the
abomination of desolation,
which was spoken of
through Daniel the prophet,
standing in the holy place (let
him that readeth understand),
Matthew 24:16 then let
them that are in Judaea flee
unto the mountains:
Matthew 24:17 let him that
is on the housetop not go
down to take out things that
are in his house:
Matthew 24:18 and let him
that is in the field not return
back to take his cloak.
Matthew 24:19 But woe
unto them that are with child
and to them that give suck in
those days!
Matthew 24:20 And pray
ye that your flight be not in
the winter, neither on a
sabbath:
Matthew 24:21 for then
shall be great tribulation,
such as hath not been from
the beginning of the world
until now, no, nor ever shall
be.
Matthew 24:22 And except
those days had been
shortened, no flesh would
have been saved: but for the
elect’s sake those days shall
be shortened.
Matthew 24:23 Then if any
man shall say unto you, Lo,
here is the Christ, or, Here;
believe it not.
Matthew 24:24 For there
shall arise false Christs, and
false prophets, and shall
show great signs and
wonders; so as to lead
astray, if possible, even the
elect.
Matthew 24:25 Behold, I
have told you beforehand.
Matthew 24:26 If therefore
they shall say unto you,
Behold, he is in the
wilderness; go not forth:
Behold, he is in the inner
chambers; believe it not.
Matthew 24:27 For as the
lightning cometh forth from
the east, and is seen even
unto the west; so shall be the
coming of the Son of man.
Matthew 24:28
Wheresoever the carcase is,
there will the eagles be
gathered together.
Matthew 24:29 But
immediately after the
tribulation of those days the
sun shall 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
shaken:
Matthew 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
on the clouds of heaven with
power and great glory.
Matthew 24:31 And he shall
send forth 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.
Matthew 24:32 Now from
the fig tree learn her parable:
when her branch is now
become tender, and putteth
forth its leaves, ye know that
the summer is nigh;
Matthew 24:33 even so ye
also, when ye see all these
things, know ye that he is
nigh, even at the doors.
Matthew 24:34 Verily I say
unto you, This generation
shall not pass away, till all
these things be
accomplished.
Matthew 24:35 Heaven and
earth shall pass away, but
my words shall not pass
away.
Matthew 24:36 But of that
day and hour knoweth no
one, not even the angels of
heaven, neither the Son, but
the Father only.
Matthew 24:37 And as
were the days of Noah, so
shall be the coming of the
Son of man.
Matthew 24:38 For as in
those days which were
before the flood they were
eating and drinking, marrying
and giving in marriage, until
the day that Noah entered
into the ark,
Matthew 24:39 and they
knew not until the flood
came, and took them all
away; so shall be the coming
of the Son of man.
Matthew 24:40 Then shall
two man be in the field; one
is taken, and one is left:
Matthew 24:41 two women
shall be grinding at the mill;
one is taken, and one is left.
Matthew 24:42 Watch
therefore: for ye know not
on what day your Lord
cometh.
Matthew 24:43 But know
this, that if the master of the
house had known in what
watch the thief was coming,
he would have watched, and
would not have suffered his
house to be broken through.
Matthew 24:44 Therefore
be ye also ready; for in an
hour that ye think not the
Son of man cometh.
Matthew 24:45 Who then is
the faithful and wise servant,
whom his lord hath set over
his household, to give them
their food in due season?
Matthew 24:46 Blessed is
that servant, whom his lord
when he cometh shall find so
doing.
Matthew 24:47 Verily I say
unto you, that he will set him
over all that he hath.
Matthew 24:48 But if that
evil servant shall say in his
heart, My lord tarrieth;
Matthew 24:49 and shall
begin to beat his
fellow-servants, and shall eat
and drink with the drunken;
Matthew 24:50 the lord of
that servant shall come in a
day when he expecteth not,
and in an hour when he
knoweth not,
Matthew 24:51 and shall cut
him asunder, and appoint his
portion with the hypocrites:
there shall be the weeping
and the gnashing of teeth.
LUKELuke 21:5 And as some
spake of the temple, how it
was adorned with goodly
stones and offerings, he said,
Luke 21:6 As for these
things which ye behold, the
days will come, in which
there shall not be left here
one stone upon another, that
shall not be thrown down.
Luke 21:7 And they asked
him, saying, Teacher, when
therefore shall these things
be? and what shall be the
sign when these things are
about to come to pass?
Luke 21:8 And he said,
Take heed that ye be not led
astray: for many shall come
in my name, saying, I am he;
and, The time is at hand: go
ye not after them.
Luke 21:9 And when ye
shall hear of wars and
tumults, be not terrified: for
these things must needs
come to pass first; but the
end is not immediately.
Luke 21:10 Then said he
unto them, Nation shall rise
against nation, and kingdom
against kingdom;
Luke 21:11 and there shall
be great earthquakes, and in
divers places famines and
pestilences; and there shall
be terrors and great signs
from heaven.
Luke 21:12 But before all
these things, they shall lay
their hands on you, and shall
persecute you, delivering you
up to the synagogues and
prisons, bringing you before
kings and governors for my
name’s sake.
Luke 21:13 It shall turn out
unto you for a testimony.
Luke 21:14 Settle it
therefore in your hearts, not
to meditate beforehand how
to answer:
Luke 21:15 for I will give
you a mouth and wisdom,
which all your adversaries
shall not be able to withstand

delivered up even by
parents, and brethren, and
kinsfolk, and friends; and
some of you shall they cause

THE SYNOPTIC GOSPELS COMPARED

The Gospel of Mark
Chapter 14

MARK
Chapter 14
1 Now after two days was
the feast of the passover and
the unleavened bread: and
the chief priests and the
scribes sought how they
might take him with subtlety,
and kill him:
2 for they said, Not during
the feast, lest haply there
shall be a tumult of the
people.

3 And while he was in
Bethany in the house of
Simon the leper, as he sat at
meat, there came a woman
having an alabaster cruse of
ointment of pure nard very
costly; and she brake the
cruse, and poured it over his
head.
4 But there were some that
had indignation among
themselves, saying, To what
purpose hath this waste of
the ointment been made?
5 For this ointment might
have been sold for above
three hundred shillings, and
given to the poor. And they
murmured against her.
6 But Jesus said, Let her
alone; why trouble ye her?
she hath wrought a good
work on me.
7 For ye have the poor
always with you, and
whensoever ye will ye can
do them good: but me ye
have not always.
8 She hath done what she
could; she hath anointed my
body beforehand for the
burying.
9 And verily I say unto you,
Wheresoever the gospel
shall be preached throughout
the whole world, that also
which this woman hath done
shall be spoken of for a
memorial of her.

10 And Judas Iscariot, he
that was one of the twelve,
went away unto the chief
priests, that he might deliver
him unto them.
11 And they, when they
heard it, were glad, and
promised to give him money.
And he sought how he might
conveniently deliver him unto
them.

12 And on the first day of
unleavened bread, when they
sacrificed the passover, his
disciples say unto him,
Where wilt thou that we go
and make ready that thou
mayest eat the passover?
13 And he sendeth two of
his disciples, and saith unto
them, Go into the city, and
there shall meet you a man
bearing a pitcher of water:
follow him;
14 and wheresoever he shall
enter in, say to the master of
the house, The Teacher
saith, Where is my
guest-chamber, where I shall
eat the passover with my
disciples?
15 And he will himself show
you a large upper room
furnished and ready: and
there make ready for us.
16 And the disciples went
forth, and came into the city,
and found as he had said
unto them: and they made
ready the passover.

17 And when it was evening
he cometh with the twelve.
18 And as they sat and
were eating, Jesus said,
Verily I say unto you, One of
you shall betray me, even he
that eateth with me.
19 They began to be
sorrowful, and to say unto
him one by one, Is it I?
20 And he said unto them,
It is one of the twelve, he
that dippeth with me in the
dish.
21 For the Son of man
goeth, even as it is written of
him: but woe unto that man
through whom the Son of
man is betrayed! good were
it for that man if he had not
been born.

22 And as they were eating,
he took bread, and when he
had blessed, he brake it, and
gave to them, and said, Take
ye: this is my body.
23 And he took a cup, and
when he had given thanks,
he gave to them: and they all
drank of it.
24 And he said unto them,
This is my blood of the
covenant, which is poured
out for many.
25 Verily I say unto you, I
shall no more drink of the
fruit of the vine, until that day
when I drink it new in the
kingdom of God.

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

27 And Jesus saith unto
them, All ye shall be
offended: for it is written, I
will smite the shepherd, and
the sheep shall be scattered
abroad.
28 Howbeit, after I am
raised up, I will go before
you into Galilee.
29 But Peter said unto him,
Although all shall be
offended, yet will not I.
30 And Jesus saith unto
him, Verily I say unto thee,
that thou to-day, even this
night, before the cock crow
twice, shalt deny me thrice.
31 But he spake
exceedingly vehemently, If I
must die with thee, I will not
deny thee. And in like
manner also said they all.

32 And they come unto a
place which was named
Gethsemane: and he saith
unto his disciples, Sit ye
here, while I pray.
33 And he taketh with him
Peter and James and John,
and began to be greatly
amazed, and sore troubled.
34 And he saith unto them,
My soul is exceeding
sorrowful even unto death:
abide ye here, and watch.
35 And he went forward a
little, and fell on the ground,
and prayed that, if it were
possible, the hour might pass
away from him.
36 And he said, Abba,
Father, all things are possible
unto thee; remove this cup
from me: howbeit not what I
will, but what thou wilt.
37 And he cometh, and
findeth them sleeping, and
saith unto Peter, Simon,
sleepest thou? couldest thou
not watch one hour?
38 Watch and pray, that ye
enter not into temptation: the
spirit indeed is willing, but
the flesh is weak.
39 And again he went
away, and prayed, saying the
same words.
40 And again he came, and
found them sleeping, for their
eyes were very heavy; and
they knew not what to
answer him.
41 And he cometh the third
time, and saith unto them,
Sleep on now, and take your
rest: it is enough; the hour is
come; behold, the Son of
man is betrayed into the
hands of sinners.
42 Arise, let us be going:
behold, he that betrayeth me
is at hand.

43 And straightway, while
he yet spake, cometh Judas,
one of the twelve, and with
him a multitude with swords
and staves, from the chief
priests and the scribes and
the elders.
44 Now he that betrayed
him had given them a token,
saying, Whomsoever I shall
kiss, that is he; take him, and
lead him away safely.
45 And when he was come,
straightway he came to him,
and saith, Rabbi; and kissed
him.
46 And they laid hands on
him, and took him.
47 But a certain one of them
that stood by drew his
sword, and smote the
servant of the high priest,
and struck off his ear.
48 And Jesus answered and
said unto them, Are ye come
out, as against a robber, with
swords and staves to seize
me?
49 I was daily with you in
the temple teaching, and ye
took me not: but this is done
that the scriptures might be
fulfilled.
50 And they all left him, and
fled.

51 And a certain young man
followed with him, having a
linen cloth cast about him,
over his naked body: and
they lay hold on him;
52 but he left the linen cloth,
and fled naked.

53 And they led Jesus
away to the high priest: and
there come together with him
all the chief priests and the
elders and the scribes.
54 And Peter had followed
him afar off, even within, into
the court of the high priest;
and he was sitting with the
officers, and warming himself
in the light of the fire.
55 Now the chief priests
and the whole council sought
witness against Jesus to put
him to death; and found it
not.
56 For many bare false
witness against him, and their
witness agreed not together.
57 And there stood up
certain, and bare false
witness against him, saying,
58 We heard him say, I will
destroy this temple that is
made with hands, and in
three days I will build
another made without hands.
59 And not even so did
their witness agree together.
60 And the high priest stood
up in the midst, and asked
Jesus, saying, Answerest
thou nothing? what is it
which these witness against
thee?
61 But he held his peace,
and answered nothing. Again
the high priest asked him,
and saith unto him, Art thou
the Christ, the Son of the
Blessed?
62 And Jesus said, I am:
and ye shall see the Son of
man sitting at the right hand
of Power, and coming with
the clouds of heaven.
63 And the high priest rent
his clothes, and saith, What
further need have we of
witnesses?
64 Ye have heard the
blasphemy: what think ye?
And they all condemned him
to be worthy of death.

65 And some began to spit
on him, and to cover his
face, and to buffet him, and
to say unto him, Prophesy:
and the officers received him
with blows of their hands.

66 And as Peter was
beneath in the court, there
cometh one of the maids of
the high priest;
67 and seeing Peter
warming himself, she looked
upon him, and saith, Thou
also wast with the Nazarene,
even Jesus.
68 But he denied, saying, I
neither know, nor
understand what thou sayest:
and he went out into the
porch; and the cock crew.
69 And the maid saw him,
and began again to say to
them that stood by, This is
one of them.
70 But he again denied it.
And after a little while again
they that stood by said to
Peter, of a truth thou art one
of them; for thou art a
Galilaean.
71 But he began to curse,
and to swear, I know not
this man of whom ye speak.
72 And straightway the
second time the cock crew.
And Peter called to mind the
word, how that Jesus said
unto him, Before the cock
crow twice, thou shalt deny
me thrice. And when he
thought thereon, he wept.

MATTHEWMatthew 26:2 Ye know that
after two days the passover
cometh, and the Son of man
is delivered up to be
crucified.
Matthew 26:3 Then were
gathered together the chief
priests, and the elders of the
people, unto the court of the
high priest, who was called
Caiaphas;
Matthew 26:4 and they
took counsel together that
they might take Jesus by
subtlety, and kill him.
Matthew 26:5 But they said,
Not during the feast, lest a
tumult arise among people.

Matthew 26:6 Now when
Jesus was in Bethany, in the
house of Simon the leper,
Matthew 26:7 there came
unto him a woman having an
alabaster cruse of exceeding
precious ointment, and she
poured it upon his head, as
he sat at meat.
Matthew 26:8 But when the
disciples saw it, they had
indignation, saying, To what
purpose is this waste?
Matthew 26:9 For this
ointment might have been
sold for much, and given to
the poor.
Matthew 26:10 But Jesus
perceiving it said unto them,
Why trouble ye the woman?
for she hath wrought a good
work upon me.
Matthew 26:11 For ye have
the poor always with you;
but me ye have not always.
Matthew 26:12 For in that
she poured this ointment
upon my body, she did it to
prepare me for burial.
Matthew 26:13 Verily I say
unto you, Wheresoever this
gospel shall be preached in
the whole world, that also
which this woman hath done
shall be spoken of for a
memorial of her.

Matthew 26:14 Then one
of the twelve, who was
called Judas Iscariot, went
unto the chief priests,
Matthew 26:15 and said,
What are ye willing to give
me, and I will deliver him
unto you? And they weighed
unto him thirty pieces of
silver.
Matthew 26:16 And from
that time he sought
opportunity to deliver him
unto them.

Matthew 26:17 Now on
the first day of unleavened
bread the disciples came to
Jesus, saying, Where wilt
thou that we make ready for
thee to eat the passover?
Matthew 26:18 And he
said, Go into the city to such
a man, and say unto him,
The Teacher saith, My time
is at hand; I keep the
passover at thy house with
my disciples.
Matthew 26:19 And the
disciples did as Jesus
appointed them; and they
made ready the passover.

Matthew 26:20 Now when
even was come, he was
sitting at meat with the
twelve disciples;
Matthew 26:21 and as they
were eating, he said, Verily I
say unto you, that one of you
shall betray me.
Matthew 26:22 And they
were exceeding sorrowful,
and began to say unto him
every one, Is it I, Lord?
Matthew 26:23 And he
answered and said, He that
dipped his hand with me in
the dish, the same shall
betray me.
Matthew 26:24 The Son of
man goeth, even as it is
written of him: but woe unto
that man through whom the
Son of man is betrayed!
good were it for that man if
he had not been born.

Matthew 26:26 And as
they were eating, Jesus took
bread, and blessed, and
brake it; and he gave to the
disciples, and said, Take,
eat; this is my body.
Matthew 26:27 And he
took a cup, and gave thanks,
and gave to them, saying,
Drink ye all of it;
Matthew 26:28 for this is
my blood of the covenant,
which is poured out for many
unto remission of sins.
Matthew 26:29 But I say
unto you, I shall not drink
henceforth of this fruit of the
vine, until that day when I
drink it new with you in my
Father’s kingdom.

Matthew 26:30 And when
they had sung a hymn, they
went out unto the mount of
Olives.

Matthew 26:31 Then saith
Jesus unto them, All ye shall
be offended in me this night:
for it is written, I will smite
the shepherd, and the sheep
of the flock shall be
scattered abroad.
Matthew 26:32 But after I
am raised up, I will go
before you into Galilee.
Matthew 26:33 But Peter
answered and said unto him,
If all shall be offended in
thee, I will never be
offended.
Matthew 26:34 Jesus said
unto him, Verily I say unto
thee, that this night, before
the cock crow, thou shalt
deny me thrice.
Matthew 26:35 Peter saith
unto him, Even if I must die
with thee, yet will I not deny
thee. Likewise also said all
the disciples.

Matthew 26:36 Then
cometh Jesus with them unto
a place called Gethsemane,
and saith unto his disciples,
Sit ye here, while I go
yonder and pray.
Matthew 26:37 And he
took with him Peter and the
two sons of Zebedee, and
began to be sorrowful and
sore troubled.
Matthew 26:38 Then saith
he unto them, My soul is
exceeding sorrowful, even
unto death: abide ye here,
and watch with me.
Matthew 26:39 And he
went forward a little, and fell
on his face, and prayed,
saying, My Father, if it be
possible, let this cup pass
away from me: nevertheless,
not as I will, but as thou wilt.
Matthew 26:40 And he
cometh unto the disciples,
and findeth them sleeping,
and saith unto Peter, What,
could ye not watch with me
one hour?
Matthew 26:41 Watch and
pray, that ye enter not into
temptation: the spirit indeed
is willing, but the flesh is
weak.
Matthew 26:42 Again a
second time he went away,
and prayed, saying, My
Father, if this cannot pass
away, except I drink it, thy
will be done.
Matthew 26:43 And he
came again and found them
sleeping, for their eyes were
heavy.
Matthew 26:44 And he left
them again, and went away,
and prayed a third time,
saying again the same words.
Matthew 26:45 Then
cometh he to the disciples,
and saith unto them, Sleep
on now, and take your rest:
behold, the hour is at hand,
and the Son of man is
betrayed into the hands of
sinners.
Matthew 26:46 Arise, let us
be going: behold, he is at
hand that betrayeth me.

Matthew 26:47 And while
he yet spake, lo, Judas, one
of the twelve, came, and
with him a great multitude
with swords and staves,
from the chief priest and
elders of the people.
Matthew 26:48 Now he
that betrayed him gave them
a sign, saying, Whomsoever
I shall kiss, that is he: take
him.
Matthew 26:49 And
straightway he came to
Jesus, and said, Hail, Rabbi;
and kissed him.
Matthew 26:50 And Jesus
said unto him, Friend, do
that for which thou art come.
Then they came and laid
hands on Jesus, and took
him.
Matthew 26:51 And
behold, one of them that
were with Jesus stretched
out his hand, and drew his
sword, and smote the
servant of the high priest,
and struck off his ear.
Matthew 26:52 Then saith
Jesus unto him, Put up again
thy sword into its place: for
all they that take the sword
shall perish with the sword.
Matthew 26:53 Or thinkest
thou that I cannot beseech
my Father, and he shall even
now send me more than
twelve legions of angels?
Matthew 26:54 How then
should the scriptures be
fulfilled that thus it must be?
Matthew 26:55 In that hour
said Jesus to the multitudes,
Are ye come out as against a
robber with swords and
staves to seize me? I sat
daily in the temple teaching,
and ye took me not.
Matthew 26:56 But all this
is come to pass, that the
scriptures of the prophets
might be fulfilled. Then all the
disciples left him, and fled.

Matthew 26:57 And they
that had taken Jesus led him
away to the house of
Caiaphas the high priest,
where the scribes and the
elders were gathered
together.
Matthew 26:58 But Peter
followed him afar off, unto
the court of the high priest,
and entered in, and sat with
the officers, to see the end.
Matthew 26:59 Now the
chief priests and the whole
council sought false witness
against Jesus, that they might
put him to death;
Matthew 26:60 and they
found it not, though many
false witnesses came. But
afterward came two,
Matthew 26:61 and said,
This man said, I am able to
destroy the temple of God,
and to build it in three days.
Matthew 26:62 And the
high priest stood up, and
said unto him, Answerest
thou nothing? what is it
which these witness against
thee?
Matthew 26:63 But Jesus
held his peace. And the high
priest said unto him, I adjure
thee by the living God, that
thou tell us whether thou art
the Christ, the Son of God.
Matthew 26:64 Jesus said
unto him, Thou hast said:
nevertheless I say unto you,
Henceforth ye shall see the
Son of man sitting at the right
hand of Power, and coming
on the clouds of heaven.
Matthew 26:65 Then the
high priest rent his garments,
saying, He hath spoken
blasphemy: what further
need have we of witnesses?
behold, now ye have heard
the blasphemy:
Matthew 26:66 what think
ye? They answered and said,
He is worthy of death.

Matthew 26:67 Then did
they spit in his face and
buffet him: and some smote
him with the palms of their
hands,
Matthew 26:68 saying,
Prophesy unto us, thou
Christ: who is he that struck
thee?

Matthew 26:69 Now Peter
was sitting without in the
court: and a maid came unto
him, saying, Thou also wast
with Jesus the Galilaean.
Matthew 26:70 But he
denied before them all,
saying, I know not what thou
sayest.
Matthew 26:71 And when
he was gone out into the
porch, another maid saw
him, and saith unto them that
were there, This man also
was with Jesus of Nazareth.
Matthew 26:72 And again
he denied with an oath, I
know not the man.
Matthew 26:73 And after a
little while they that stood by
came and said to Peter, Of a
truth thou also art one of
them; for thy speech maketh
thee known.
Matthew 26:74 Then began
he to curse and to swear, I
know not the man. And
straightway the cock crew.
Matthew 26:75 And Peter
remembered the word which
Jesus had said, Before the
cock crow, thou shalt deny
me thrice. And he went out,
and wept bitterly.

LUKELuke 22:1 Now the feast
of unleavened bread drew
nigh, which is called the
Passover.
Luke 22:2 And the chief
priests and the scribes
sought how they might put
him to death; for they feared
the people.

Luke 7:37 And behold, a
woman who was in the city,
a sinner; and when she knew
that he was sitting at meat in
the Pharisee’s house, she
brought an alabaster cruse of
ointment,
Luke 7:38 and standing
behind at his feet, weeping,
she began to wet his feet
with her tears, and wiped
them with the hair of her
head, and kissed his feet,
and anointed them with the
ointment.
Luke 7:39 Now when the
Pharisee that had bidden him
saw it, he spake within
himself, saying, This man, if
he were a prophet, would
have perceived who and
what manner of woman this
is that toucheth him, that she
is a sinner.

Luke 22:3 And Satan
entered into Judas who was
called Iscariot, being of the
number of the twelve.
Luke 22:4 And he went
away, and communed with
the chief priests and
captains, how he might
deliver him unto them.
Luke 22:5 And they were
glad, and covenanted to give
him money.
Luke 22:6 And he
consented, and sought
opportunity to deliver him
unto them in the absence of
the multitude.

Luke 22:7 And the day of
unleavened bread came, on
which the passover must be
sacrificed.
Luke 22:8 And he sent
Peter and John, saying, Go
and make ready for us the
passover, that we may eat.
Luke 22:9 And they said
unto him, Where wilt thou
that we make ready?
Luke 22:10 And he said
unto them, Behold, when ye
are entered into the city,
there shall meet you a man
bearing a pitcher of water;
follow him into the house
whereinto he goeth.
Luke 22:11 And ye shall
say unto the master of the
house, The Teacher saith
unto thee, Where is the
guestchamber, where I shall
eat the passover with my
disciples?
Luke 22:12 And he will
show you a large upper
room furnished: there make
ready.
Luke 22:13 And they went,
and found as he had said
unto them: and they made
ready the passover.

Luke 22:14 And when the
hour was come, he sat
down, and the apostles with
him.
Luke 22:21 But behold,
the hand of him that
betrayeth me is with me on
the table.
Luke 22:22 For the Son of
man indeed goeth, as it hath
been determined: but woe
unto that man through whom
he is betrayed!
Luke 22:23 And they began
to question among
themselves, which of them it
was that should do this thing.

Luke 22:17 And he
received a cup, and when he
had given thanks, he said,
Take this, and divide it
among yourselves:
Luke 22:18 for I say unto
you, I shall not drink from
henceforth of the fruit of the
vine, until the kingdom of
God shall come.
Luke 22:19 And he took
bread, and when he had
given thanks, he brake it,
and gave to them, saying,
This is my body which is
given for you: this do in
remembrance of me.
Luke 22:20 And the cup in
like manner after supper,
saying, This cup is the new
covenant in my blood, even
that which is poured out for
you.

Luke 22:40 And when he
was at the place, he said
unto them, Pray that ye enter
not into temptation.
Luke 22:41 And he was
parted from them about a
stone’s cast; and he kneeled
down and prayed,
Luke 22:42 saying, Father,
if thou be willing, remove this
cup from me: nevertheless
not my will, but thine, be
done.
Luke 22:43 And there
appeared unto him an angel
from heaven, strengthening
him.
Luke 22:44 And being in an
agony he prayed more
earnestly; and his sweat
became as it were great
drops of blood falling down
upon the ground.
Luke 22:45 And when he
rose up from his prayer, he
came unto the disciples, and
found them sleeping for
sorrow,
Luke 22:46 and said unto
them, Why sleep ye? rise
and pray, that ye enter not
into temptation.

Luke 22:47 While he yet
spake, behold, a multitude,
and he that was called Judas,
one of the twelve, went
before them; and he drew
near unto Jesus to kiss him.
Luke 22:48 But Jesus said
unto him, Judas, betrayest
thou the Son of man with a
kiss?
Luke 22:49 And when they
that were about him saw
what would follow, they
said, Lord, shall we smite
with the sword?
Luke 22:50 And a certain
one of them smote the
servant of the high priest,
and struck off his right ear.
Luke 22:51 But Jesus
answered and said, Suffer ye
them thus far. And he
touched his ear, and healed
him.
Luke 22:52 And Jesus said
unto the chief priests, and
captains of the temple, and
elders, that were come
against him, Are ye come
out, as against a robber, with
swords and staves?
Luke 22:53 When I was
daily with you in the temple,
ye stretched not forth your
hands against me: but this is
your hour, and the power of
darkness.
John 18:3 Judas then,
having received the band of
soldiers, and officers from
the chief priests and the
Pharisees, cometh thither
with lanterns and torches and
weapons.
John 18:4 Jesus therefore,
knowing all the things that
were coming upon him, went
forth, and saith unto them,
Whom seek ye?
John 18:5 They answered
him, Jesus of Nazareth.
Jesus saith unto them, I am
he. And Judas also, who
betrayed him, was standing
with them.
John 18:6 When therefore
he said unto them, I am he,
they went backward, and fell
to the ground.
John 18:7 Again therefore
he asked them, Whom seek
ye? And they said, Jesus of
Nazareth.
John 18:8 Jesus answered, I
told you that I am he; if
therefore ye seek me, let
these go their way:
John 18:9 that the word
might be fulfilled which he
spake, Of those whom thou
hast given me I lost not one.
John 18:10 Simon Peter
therefore having a sword
drew it, and struck the high
priest’s servant, and cut off
his right ear. Now the
servant’s name was
Malchus.
John 18:11 Jesus therefore
said unto Peter, Put up the
sword into the sheath: the
cup which the Father hath
given me, shall I not drink it?

Luke 22:66 And as soon as
it was day, the assembly of
the elders of the people was
gathered together, both chief
priests and scribes; and they
led him away into their
council, saying,
Luke 22:67 If thou art the
Christ, tell us. But he said
unto them, If I tell you, ye
will not believe:
Luke 22:68 and if I ask you,
ye will not answer.
Luke 22:69 But from
henceforth shall the Son of
man be seated at the right
hand of the power of God.
Luke 22:70 And they all
said, Art thou then the Son
of God? And he said unto
them, Ye say that I am.
Luke 22:71 And they said,
What further need have we
of witness? for we ourselves
have heard from his own
mouth.

Luke 22:63 And the men
that held Jesus mocked him,
and beat him.
64 And they blindfolded
him, and asked him, saying,
Prophesy: who is he that
struck thee?

Luke 22:56 And a certain
maid seeing him as he sat in
the light of the fire, and
looking stedfastly upon him,
said, This man also was with
him.
Luke 22:57 But he denied,
saying, Woman, I know him
not.
Luke 22:58 And after a little
while another saw him, and
said, Thou also art one of
them. But Peter said, Man, I
am not.
Luke 22:59 And after the
space of about one hour
another confidently affirmed,
saying, Of a truth this man
also was with him; for he is a
Galilaean.
Luke 22:60 But Peter said,
Man, I know not what thou
sayest. And immediately,
while he yet spake, the cock
crew.
Luke 22:61 And the Lord
turned, and looked upon
Peter. And Peter
remembered the word of the
Lord, how that he said unto
him, Before the cock crow
this day thou shalt deny me
thrice.
Luke 22:62 And he went
out, and wept bitterly.

Chapter 15

MARK
Chapter 15

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

2 And Pilate asked him, Art
thou the King of the Jews?
And he answering saith unto
him, Thou sayest.
3 And the chief priests
accused him of many things.
4 And Pilate again asked
him, saying, Answerest thou
nothing? behold how many
things they accuse thee of.
5 But Jesus no more
answered anything; insomuch
that Pilate marvelled.

6 Now at the feast he used
to release unto them one
prisoner, whom they asked
of him.
7 And there was one called
Barabbas, lying bound with
them that had made
insurrection, men who in the
insurrection had committed
murder.
8 And the multitude went up
and began to ask him to do
as he was wont to do unto
them.
9 And Pilate answered
them, saying, Will ye that I
release unto you the King of
the Jews?
10 For he perceived that for
envy the chief priests had
delivered him up.
11 But the chief priests
stirred up the multitude, that
he should rather release
Barabbas unto them.
12 And Pilate again
answered and said unto
them, What then shall I do
unto him whom ye call the
King of the Jews?
13 And they cried out again,
Crucify him.
14 And Pilate said unto
them, Why, what evil hath he
done? But they cried out
exceedingly, Crucify him.
15 And Pilate, wishing to
content the multitude,
released unto them
Barabbas, and delivered
Jesus, when he had scourged
him, to be crucified.

16 And the soldiers led him
away within the court, which
is the Praetorium; and they
call together the whole band.
17 And they clothe him with
purple, and platting a crown
of thorns, they put it on him;
18 and they began to salute
him, Hail, King of the Jews!
19 And they smote his head
with a reed, and spat upon
him, and bowing their knees
worshipped him.
20 And when they had
mocked him, they took off
from him the purple, and put
on him his garments. And
they lead him out to crucify
him.

21 And they compel one
passing by, Simon of
Cyrene, coming from the
country, the father of
Alexander and Rufus, to go
with them, that he might bear
his cross.

22 And they bring him unto
the place Golgotha, which is,
being interpreted, The place
of a skull.
23 And they offered him
wine mingled with myrrh: but
he received it not.
24 And they crucify him,
and part his garments among
them, casting lots upon them,
what each should take.
25 And it was the third
hour, and they crucified him.
26 And the superscription
of his accusation was written
over, THE KING OF THE
JEWS.
27 And with him they
crucify two robbers; one on
his right hand, and one on his
left.
28 And the scripture was
fulfilled, which saith, And he
was reckoned with
transgressors.
29 And they that passed by
railed on him, wagging their
heads, and saying, Ha! Thou
that destroyest the temple,
and buildest it in three days,
30 save thyself, and come
down from the cross.
31 In like manner also the
chief priests mocking him
among themselves with the
scribes said, He saved
others; himself he cannot
save.
32 Let the Christ, the King
of Israel, now come down
from the cross, that we may
see and believe. And they
that were crucified with him
reproached him.

33 And when the sixth
hour was come, there was
darkness over the whole
land until the ninth hour.
34 And at the ninth hour
Jesus cried with a loud
voice, Eloi, Eloi, lama
sabachthani? which is, being
interpreted, My God, my
God, why hast thou forsaken
me?
35 And some of them that
stood by, when they heard it,
said, Behold, he calleth
Elijah.
36 And one ran, and filling a
sponge full of vinegar, put it
on a reed, and gave him to
drink, saying, Let be; let us
see whether Elijah cometh to
take him down.
37 And Jesus uttered a loud
voice, and gave up the ghost.
38 And the veil of the
temple was rent in two from
the top to the bottom.
39 And when the centurion,
who stood by over against
him, saw that he so gave up
the ghost, he said, Truly this
man was the Son of God.
40 And there were also
women beholding from afar:
among whom were both
Mary Magdalene, and Mary
the mother of James the less
and of Joses, and Salome;
41 who, when he was in
Galilee, followed him, and
ministered unto him; and
many other women that
came up with him unto
Jerusalem.

42 And when even was
now come, because it was
the Preparation, that is, the
day before the sabbath,
43 there came Joseph of
Arimathaea, a councillor of
honorable estate, who also
himself was looking for the
kingdom of God; and he
boldly went in unto Pilate,
and asked for the body of
Jesus.
44 And Pilate marvelled if
he were already dead: and
calling unto him the
centurion, he asked him
whether he had been any
while dead.
45 And when he learned it
of the centurion, he granted
the corpse to Joseph.
46 And he bought a linen
cloth, and taking him down,
wound him in the linen cloth,
and laid him in a tomb which
had been hewn out of a
rock; and he rolled a stone
against the door of the tomb.
47 And Mary Magdalene
and Mary the mother of
Joses beheld where he was
laid.

MATTHEW

Matthew 27:1 Now when
morning was come, all the
chief priests and the elders of
the people took counsel
against Jesus to put him to
death:

Matthew 27:11 Now Jesus
stood before the governor:
and the governor asked him,
saying, Art thou the King of
the Jews? And Jesus said
unto him, Thou sayest.
Matthew 27:12 And when
he was accused by the chief
priests and elders, he
answered nothing.
Matthew 27:13 Then saith
Pilate unto him, Hearest thou
not how many things they
witness against thee?
Matthew 27:14 And he
gave him no answer, not
even to one word: insomuch
that the governor marvelled
greatly.

Matthew 27:15 Now at the
feast the governor was wont
to release unto the multitude
one prisoner, whom they
would.
Matthew 27:16 And they
had then a notable prisoner,
called Barabbas.
Matthew 27:17 When
therefore they were gathered
together, Pilate said unto
them, Whom will ye that I
release unto you? Barabbas,
or Jesus who is called
Christ?
Matthew 27:18 For he
knew that for envy they had
delivered him up.
Matthew 27:19 And while
he was sitting on the
judgment-seat, his wife sent
unto him, saying, Have thou
nothing to do with that
righteous man; for I have
suffered many things this day
in a dream because of him.
Matthew 27:20 Now the
chief priests and the elders
persuaded the multitudes that
they should ask for
Barabbas, and destroy
Jesus.
Matthew 27:21 But the
governor answered and said
unto them, Which of the two
will ye that I release unto
you? And they said,
Barabbas.
Matthew 27:22 Pilate saith
unto them, What then shall I
do unto Jesus who is called
Christ? They all say, Let him
be crucified.
Matthew 27:23 And he
said, Why, what evil hath he
done? But they cried out
exceedingly, saying, Let him
be be crucified.
Matthew 27:24 So when
Pilate saw that he prevailed
nothing, but rather that a
tumult was arising, he took
water, and washed his hands
before the multitude, saying,
I am innocent of the blood of
this righteous man; see ye to
it.
Matthew 27:25 And all the
people answered and said,
His blood be on us, and on
our children.
Matthew 27:26 Then
released he unto them
Barabbas; but Jesus he
scourged and delivered to be
crucified.

Matthew 27:27 Then the
soldiers of the governor took
Jesus into the Praetorium,
and gathered unto him the
whole band.
Matthew 27:28 And they
stripped him, and put on him
a scarlet robe.
Matthew 27:29 And they
platted a crown of thorns
and put it upon his head, and
a reed in his right hand; and
they kneeled down before
him, and mocked him,
saying, Hail, King of the
Jews!
Matthew 27:30 And they
spat upon him, and took the
reed and smote him on the
head.
Matthew 27:31 And when
they had mocked him, they
took off from him the robe,
and put on him his garments,
and led him away to crucify
him.

Matthew 27:32 And as they
came out, they found a man
of Cyrene, Simon by name:
him they compelled to go
with them, that he might bear
his cross.

Matthew 27:33 And they
were come unto a place
called Golgotha, that is to
say, The place of a skull,
Matthew 27:34 they gave
him wine to drink mingled
with gall: and when he had
tasted it, he would not drink.
Matthew 27:35 And when
they had crucified him, they
parted his garments among
them, casting lots;
Matthew 27:36 and they sat
and watched him there.
Matthew 27:37 And they
set up over his head his
accusation written, THIS IS
JESUS THE KING OF
THE JEWS.
Matthew 27:38 Then are
there crucified with him two
robbers, one on the right
hand and one on the left.
Matthew 27:39 And they
that passed by railed on him,
wagging their heads,
Matthew 27:40 and saying,
Thou that destroyest the
temple, and buildest it in
three days, save thyself: if
thou art the Son of God,
come down from the cross.
Matthew 27:41 In like
manner also the chief priests
mocking him, with the
scribes and elders, said,
Matthew 27:42 He saved
others; himself he cannot
save. He is the King of
Israel; let him now come
down from the cross, and
we will believe on him.
Matthew 27:43 He trusteth
on God; let him deliver him
now, if he desireth him: for
he said, I am the Son of
God.
Matthew 27:44 And the
robbers also that were
crucified with him cast upon
him the same reproach.

Matthew 27:45 Now from
the sixth hour there was
darkness over all the land
until the ninth hour.
Matthew 27:46 And about
the ninth hour Jesus cried
with a loud voice, saying, Eli,
Eli, lama sabachthani? that is,
My God, my God, why hast
thou forsaken me?
Matthew 27:47 And some
of them stood there, when
they heard it, said, This man
calleth Elijah.
Matthew 27:48 And
straightway one of them ran,
and took a sponge, and filled
it with vinegar, and put it on
a reed, and gave him to
drink.
Matthew 27:49 And the rest
said, Let be; let us see
whether Elijah cometh to
save him.
Matthew 27:50 And Jesus
cried again with a loud voice,
and yielded up his spirit.
Matthew 27:51 And
behold, the veil of the temple
was rent in two from the top
to the bottom; and the earth
did quake; and the rocks
were rent;
Matthew 27:52 and the
tombs were opened; and
many bodies of the saints
that had fallen asleep were
raised;
Matthew 27:53 and coming
forth out of the tombs after
his resurrection they entered
into the holy city and
appeared unto many.
Matthew 27:54 Now the
centurion, and they that were
with him watching Jesus,
when they saw the
earthquake, and the things
that were done, feared
exceedingly, saying, Truly
this was the Son of God.
Matthew 27:55 And many
women were there beholding
from afar, who had followed
Jesus from Galilee,
ministering unto him:
Matthew 27:56 among
whom was Mary
Magdalene, and Mary the
mother of James and Joses,
and the mother of the sons of
Zebedee.

Matthew 27:57 And when
even was come, there came
a rich man from Arimathaea,
named Joseph, who also
himself was Jesus’ disciple:
Matthew 27:58 this man
went to Pilate, and asked for
the body of Jesus. Then
Pilate commanded it to be
given up.
Matthew 27:59 And Joseph
took the body, and wrapped
it in a clean linen cloth,
Matthew 27:60 and laid it in
his own new tomb, which he
had hewn out in the rock:
and he rolled a great stone to
the door of the tomb, and
departed.
Matthew 27:61 And Mary
Magdalene was there, and
the other Mary, sitting over
against the sepulchre.

LUKE

Luke 23:2 And they began
to accuse him, saying, We
found this man perverting our
nation, and forbidding to give
tribute to Caesar, and saying
that he himself is Christ a
king.
Luke 23:3 And Pilate asked
him, saying, Art thou the
King of the Jews? And he
answered him and said,
Thou sayest.

Luke 23:18 But they cried
out all together, saying,
Away with this man, and
release unto us Barabbas:
Luke 23:19 one who for a
certain insurrection made in
the city, and for murder, was
cast into prison.
Luke 23:20 And Pilate
spake unto them again,
desiring to release Jesus;
Luke 23:21 but they
shouted, saying, Crucify,
crucify him.
Luke 23:22 And he said
unto them the third time,
Why, what evil hath this man
done? I have found no cause
of death in him: I will
therefore chastise him and
release him.
Luke 23:23 But they were
urgent with loud voices,
asking that he might be
crucified. And their voices
prevailed.
Luke 23:24 And Pilate gave
sentence that what they
asked for should be done.
Luke 23:25 And he
released him that for
insurrection and murder had
been cast into prison, whom
they asked for; but Jesus he
delivered up to their will.

Luke 23:26 And when
they led him away, they laid
hold upon one Simon of
Cyrene, coming from the
country, and laid on him the
cross, to bear it after Jesus.

Luke 23:33 And when they
came unto the place which is
called The skull, there they
crucified him, and the
malefactors, one on the right
hand and the other on the
left.
Luke 23:34 And Jesus said,
Father, forgive them; for they
know not what they do. And
parting his garments among
them, they cast lots.
Luke 23:35 And the people
stood beholding. And the
rulers also scoffed at him,
saying, He saved others; let
him save himself, if this is the
Christ of God, his chosen.
Luke 23:36 And the
soldiers also mocked him,
coming to him, offering him
vinegar,
Luke 23:37 and saying, If
thou art the King of the
Jews, save thyself.
Luke 23:38 And there was
also a superscription over
him, THIS IS THE KING
OF THE JEWS.
Luke 23:39 And one of the
malefactors that were
hanged railed on him, saying,
Art not thou the Christ? save
thyself and us.
Luke 23:40 But the other
answered, and rebuking him
said, Dost thou not even fear
God, seeing thou art in the
same condemnation?
Luke 23:41 And we indeed
justly; for we receive the due
reward of our deeds: but this
man hath done nothing
amiss.
Luke 23:42 And he said,
Jesus, remember me when
thou comest in thy kingdom.
Luke 23:43 And he said
unto him, Verily I say unto
thee, To-day shalt thou be
with me in Paradise.

Luke 23:44 And it was
now about the sixth hour,
and a darkness came over
the whole land until the ninth
hour,
Luke 23:45 the sun’s light
failing: and the veil of the
temple was rent in the midst.
Luke 23:46 And Jesus,
crying with a loud voice,
said, Father, into thy hands I
commend my spirit: and
having said this, he gave up
the ghost.
Luke 23:47 And when the
centurion saw what was
done, he glorified God,
saying, Certainly this was a
righteous man.
Luke 23:48 And all the
multitudes that came together
to this sight, when they
beheld the things that were
done, returned smiting their
breasts.
Luke 23:49 And all his
acquaintance, and the
women that followed with
him from Galilee, stood afar
off, seeing these things.

Luke 23:50 And behold, a
man named Joseph, who
was a councillor, a good and
righteous man
Luke 23:51 (he had not
consented to their counsel
and deed), a man of
Arimathaea, a city of the
Jews, who was looking for
the kingdom of God:
Luke 23:52 this man went
to Pilate, and asked for the
body of Jesus.
Luke 23:53 And he took it
down, and wrapped it in a
linen cloth, and laid him in a
tomb that was hewn in stone,
where never man had yet
lain.
Luke 23:54 And it was the
day of the Preparation, and
the sabbath drew on.
Luke 23:55 And the
women, who had come with
him out of Galilee, followed
after, and beheld the tomb,
and how his body was laid.
Luke 23:56 And they
returned, and prepared
spices and ointments. And
on the sabbath they rested
according to the
commandment.

THE SYNOPTIC GOSPELS COMPARED

The Gospel of Mark
Chapter 16

MARK
Chapter 16

1 And when the sabbath
was past, Mary Magdalene,
and Mary the mother of
James, and Salome, bought
spices, that they might come
and anoint him.
2 And very early on the first
day of the week, they come
to the tomb when the sun
was risen.
3 And they were saying
among themselves, Who
shall roll us away the stone
from the door of the tomb?
4 and looking up, they see
that the stone is rolled back:
for it was exceeding great.
5 And entering into the
tomb, they saw a young man
sitting on the right side,
arrayed in a white robe; and
they were amazed.
6 And he saith unto them,
Be not amazed: ye seek
Jesus, the Nazarene, who
hath been crucified: he is
risen; he is not here: behold,
the place where they laid
him!
7 But go, tell his disciples
and Peter, He goeth before
you into Galilee: there shall
ye see him, as he said unto
you.
8 And they went out, and
fled from the tomb; for
trembling and astonishment
had come upon them: and
they said nothing to any one;
for they were afraid.

(NOTE: The earliest
manuscripts of the Gospel of
Mark do not include the verses
that follow verse 8, and
two different endings were
added to the gospel in later
times by the church. The
typical ending follows…)

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

10 She went and told them
that had been with him, as
they mourned and wept.

11 And they, when they
heard that he was alive, and
had been seen of her,
disbelieved.
12 And after these things he
was manifested in another
form unto two of them, as
they walked, on their way
into the country.
13 And they went away and
told it unto the rest: neither
believed they them.
14 And afterward he was
manifested unto the eleven
themselves as they sat at
meat; and he upbraided them
with their unbelief and
hardness of heart, because
they believed not them that
had seen him after he was
risen.

15 And he said unto them,
Go ye into all the world, and
preach the gospel to the
whole creation.

16 He that believeth and is
baptized shall be saved; but
he that disbelieveth shall be
condemned.
17 And these signs shall
accompany them that
believe: in my name shall
they cast out demons; they
shall speak with new
tongues;
18 they shall take up
serpents, and if they drink
any deadly thing, it shall in no
wise hurt them; they shall lay
hands on the sick, and they
shall recover.

19 So then the Lord Jesus,
after he had spoken unto
them, was received up into
heaven, and sat down at the
right hand of God.
20 And they went forth, and
preached everywhere, the
Lord working with them, and
confirming the word by the
signs that followed. Amen.

MATTHEW

Matthew 28:1 Now late on
the sabbath day, as it began
to dawn toward the first day
of the week, came Mary
Magdalene and the other
Mary to see the sepulchre.
Matthew 28:2 And behold,
there was a great
earthquake; for an angel of
the Lord descended from
heaven, and came and rolled
away the stone, and sat upon
it.
Matthew 28:3 His
appearance was as lightning,
and his raiment white as
snow:
Matthew 28:4 and for fear
of him the watchers did
quake, and became as dead
men.
Matthew 28:5 And the
angel answered and said
unto the women, Fear not
ye; for I know that ye seek
Jesus, who hath been
crucified.
Matthew 28:6 He is not
here; for he is risen, even as
he said. Come, see the place
where the Lord lay.
Matthew 28:7 And go
quickly, and tell his disciples,
He is risen from the dead;
and lo, he goeth before you
into Galilee; there shall ye
see him: lo, I have told you.
Matthew 28:8 And they
departed quickly from the
tomb with fear and great joy,
and ran to bring his disciples
word.

Matthew 27:56 among
whom was Mary
Magdalene, and Mary the
mother of James and Joses,
and the mother of the sons of
Zebedee.

Matthew 28:19 Go ye
therefore, and make
disciples of all the nations,
baptizing them into the name
of the Father and of the Son
and of the Holy Spirit:

LUKE

Luke 24:1 But on the first
day of the week, at early
dawn, they came unto the
tomb, bringing the spices
which they had prepared.
Luke 24:2 And they found
the stone rolled away from
the tomb.
Luke 24:3 And they entered
in, and found not the body of
the Lord Jesus.
Luke 24:4 And it came to
pass, while they were
perplexed thereabout,
behold, two men stood by
them in dazzling apparel:
Luke 24:5 and as they were
affrighted and bowed down
their faces to the earth, they
said unto them, Why seek ye
the living among the dead?
Luke 24:6 He is not here,
but is risen: remember how
he spake unto you when he
was yet in Galilee,
Luke 24:7 saying that the
Son of man must be
delivered up into the hands
of sinful men, and be
crucified, and the third day
rise again.
Luke 24:8 And they
remembered his words,
Luke 24:9 and returned
from the tomb, and told all
these things to the eleven,
and to all the rest.
Luke 24:10 Now they were
Mary Magdalene, and
Joanna, and Mary the
mother of James: and the
other women with them told
these things unto the
apostles.

given you authority to tread
upon serpents and
scorpions, and over all the
power of the enemy: and
nothing shall in any wise hurt
you.
