8 I tell 3rou that lie will avenge thei speedily. Nevertheless, when the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth?

9 17 And lie spake this parable unto .certain which trusted in themselves

Unit they were righteous, and despised others.

JO Two men went up into the temple to pray; the one a Pharisee, and tJie other a publican.

11 The Pharisee stood and prayed thus with himself, God, 1 thank, tbee, that lam not as other men are, extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even as this publican.

12 I fast twice in the week, I give tithes of all that I possess.

eyes unto heaven, but smote upon his breast, saying, God be merciful to me a sinner.

14 I tell you, this man went down to nis house justified rather than the Other: for every one that exalteth himself shall be abased; and he that hurnbleth himself shall be exalted.

15 M And they brought unto him also infants, that he would touch them: but when his disciples saw it, they rebuked them.

16 But Jesus called them unto him, and said, Sutler little children to comej unto me, and forbid them not: for of such is the kingdom of God.

17 Verily I say unto you, Whosoever shall not receive the kingdom of God as a little child shall in no wise] enter therein.

18 IT And a certain ruler asked hn saying, Good Master, what shall 1 do[ to inherit eternal life?

19 And Jesus said unto him, Why callest tiiou ine good? none is good, save one, that is, God.

20 Thou knowest the commandments, Do not commit adultery, Do not kill, Do not steal, Do not bear| false witness, Honour thy lather and thy mother.

21 And he said, All these have II kept from my youth up.

■22 Now, when Jesus heard these: things, he said unto him, Vet lai:kest!

LUKE. Leaving allfor Christ.

'hat the | thou one thing: sell all that thou hast, and distribute unto the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come, follow inc.

23 And when he heard this, he was .'ery sorrowful: for he was very rich.

24 And when Jesus saw that he was ■ery sorrowful, lie said, How hardly S5ki.i1 they that have riches enter into the kingdom of God 1

25 For it is easier for a camel to go hrough a needle's eye, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God.

2b And they that heard it said, Who then can be saved?

27 And he said, The tilings which ire impossible with men are possible vith God.

28 IF Then Peter said, Lo, we have left all, and followed tbee.

29 And he said unto them, Verily I say unto you, There is no man that, hath left house, or paren.s, or brethren, or wife, or children, for the kingdom of God s sake,

30 Who shall not receive manifold more in this present time, and in the vorld to come life everlasting.

31 IT Then he took unto him the twelve, and said unto them, Behold,

jo up to Jerusalem, and all things that are written by the prophets con ceming the Son of man shall be accomplished.

• he shall be delivered unto the Gentiles, and shall be mocked, and spitefully entreated, and spitted on:

33 And they shall scourge him, and put him to death; and the third day he ;hall rise again.

34 And they understood none of these things: and this saying was hid from them, neither knew they the

hings which were spoken.

35 IT And it came to pass, that, as he was come nigh unto Jericho, a certain blind man sat by the way-side begging.

36 And hearing the multitude pass »y, he asked what it meant.

37 And they told him, that Jesus of Nazareth passeth by.

38 And he cried, saying, Jesus, thou son of David, have mercy on me.

39 And they which went before rebuked him, that he should hold his peace: hut he cried so much the more, Thou sou of David, hare mercy on me.

40 And Jesus stood, and commanded iim to be brought unto him: and

when he was come near, he asked him,

3>2 And they that were sent went]pie their way, and found even as lie had said unto them.

33 And as they were loosing the colt, the owners thereof said unto them, Why loose ye the colt?

34 And they said, The Lord hath need of him.

35 And they brought him to Jesus: and Uiey cast their garments upon the eolt, and they set Jesus thereon:

36 And as he went, they spread their clothes in the way.

37 And when he was come nigh, even now 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 tli mighty works, that, they had seen,

38 Saying, BWsed be the King that cometh in the name of the Lord; peacr in heaven, and glory in the highest.

39 And some of the Pharisees fron among the multitude said unto him Master, rebuke thy disciples.

40 And he answered and said unti them, I tell you that, if these should hold their peace, the stones w mediately cry out.

41 V And when he was come near, he beheld the city, and wept over ir.

42 Saying, If thou hadst known,even thou, at least in this thy day,the tilings which belong unto thy peace! now they are hid from thine eyes.

43 For the days shall come upon thee, that thine enemies shall cast: trench about thee, and compass the round,and keep thee in on every side:

44 And shall lay thee even with the ground, and thy children within thee; and they shall not leave in thee one stone upon another; because thou h newest not the time of thy visitation.

45 And he went into the temple, and began to cast out them that sold therein,"and them that bought:

46 Saying unto them, It is written, My house is the house of prayer: but ye have made it a den of thieves.

47 And he taught daily in the temple. But the chief priests, and the scribes, and the chief of the people, sought to destroy him;

48 And could not find what they might do: for all the people were very attentive to hear him.


AND it came to pass, that on one of those days, as he taught the peo

Parable of the vineyard. the temple, and preached the gospel, the chief priests and the scribes came upon htm, with the elders,

2 And spake unto him, saying, TcM us? by what authority doest thoii these things? or who is he that gave thee this authority?

3 And he answered and said unto them, I will also ask you one thing; and answer me:

4 Tlie Daptism of John, was it from heaven or of men?

5 And thcyreasoned with themselves, saying, If we shall say, From heaven • he will say, Why then believe ye him not?

6 But and if we say, Of men; all Die people will stone us: for they be persuaded that John was a prophet.

7 And they answered, That they could not tell whence it vjas.

8 And Jesus said unto them; Neither tell I you by what authority I do these things.

9 TT Then began he to 6peak to the people this parable; A certain man planted a vineyard, and let it forth to husbandmen, and went into a far country for a long time.

1U And at the season he sent a per vant to the husbandmen, that they should give him of the fruit of tin vineyard: but the husbandmen bea* him, and sent him away empty.

11 And again he sent another ser vant: and they beat him also, and en treated lam shamefully, and sent him away empty.

12 And again he sent a third: and they wounded him also, and cast/Ww

13 Then paid the lord of the vineyard, What shall 1 do? I will send my beloved son: it may be they will rever ence Ami when they see him.

But when the husbandmen saw they reasoned among themselves, lg, This is the heir: come, let in kill him, tli at the inheritance maybe

15 So they cast him out of the vine yard, and killed him. What therefore shall the lord of the vineyard do unto them?

16 He shall come and destroy these husbandmen, and shall give the vine

19 IT And the chief priests and the; scribes the same hour sought to lay hands on him; and they (eared the people: for they perceived that he had spoken this parable against them.

20 And they watched him, and sent forth spies, which should feign them-1 selves just men, that they might take hold oi' his words, that so they might deliver him unto the power and authority of the governor.

21 And they asked him, saying, Master, we know that thou sayest and teachest rightly,neither acceptest thon the person of rrny, but teachest lh way of G od truly;

22 Is it lawful for us to give tribute unto Cesar,or no?

23 But he perceived their craftiness, and said unto them, Why tempt yc me?

24 Show me a penny. Whose image! and superscription both it? They

... sweml and said, Cesar's.

26 And he said unto them. Render therefore unto Cesar the things w be Cesar's, and unto God the sb which be God's.

2b' And they could not take hold of nis words before the people: and they marvelled at his answer, and held their peace.

27 IT Then came to him certain < the Sadducees, which deny that the is any resurrection; and they asked hiin,

23 Saying, Master, Moses wrote untc us, If any man's brother die, having a wife, and he die without children that his brother should take his wife, end raise up seed unto his brother.

29 There were therefore seven bretJi ren: and the first took a wife, and died without children.

30 And the second took her to wife, and he died childless.

31 And the third took her; and like manner the seven also: and they left no children, and died.

32 Last of all the woman died also.

33 Therefore in the resurrectir w hose wife of them is she? for scv< bad her to wife.

34 A.nd Jesus answering, said unto'

worthy to obtain that world, and the"cm the dead, neither marry, nor are given in marriage:

36 Neither can they die any more: for they are equal unto the angels; and are the children of God, being

he children of the resurrection.

42 And David himself sniUi in the book of Psalms, The Loud said unto my Lord, Sit thou on my right hand,

43 Till I make thine enemies thy footstool.

44 David therefore caheth him Lord, how is he then his son?

45 TT Then, in the audience of all the people, he said unto his disciples,

46 Beware of tbe scribes, which do sire to walk in long robes, and love

4 For all these have of their abvm dance cast in unto the offerings <>t God : but she of her penury hath cast in all the living that she had.

7 IT And they asked hiro, saying, Master, but when shall these tilings be? and what sign wilt there be, when these things shall come to pass?

8 And he said, Take heed that ye be not deceived: for many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and the time draweth near: go ye not therefore after them.

9 But when ye shall hear of war. and commotions, be not terrified: for these things must first come to pass: but the end *.* nut by and by.

10 Then said he unto them, Nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom:

11 And great earthquakes shall be in d:vers places, and famines, and pestilences; and fearful sights and great signs shall there be from heaven.

12 But before all these, they shall la. their hands onyou, and persecute you, delivering you up to the synagogues an>l into prisons, being brought belbn kings and rulers for my name's .sake.
