THE INFIRM MAN AT THE POOL OF BETHESDA.
JERUSALEM. JOHN V: 1-15.

FTER this there was a feast of the Jews; and

A Jesus went up to Jerusalem.

Now there is at Jerusalem by the sheep market a pool, which is called in the Hebrew tongue Bethesda, having five porches.

IN THESE lay a great multitude of impotent folk, | 3 of blind, halt, withered, waiting for the moving of the water.

2

FOR an angel went down at a certain season into 4 the pool, and troubled the water: whosoever then first after the troubling of the water stepped in, was made whole of whatsoever disease he had. AND a certain man was there, which had an in- 5 firmity thirty and eight years.

6

WHEN Jesus saw him lie, and knew that he had been now a long time in that case, he saith unto him, Wilt thou be made whole? THE impotent man answered him, Sir, I have 7 no man, when the water is troubled, to put me into the pool: but while I am coming, another steppeth down before me.

JESUS saith unto him, Rise, take up thy bed, and 8 walk.

9 AND immediately the man was made whole, and took up his bed, and walked: and on the same day was the sabbath.

10 THE Jews therefore said unto him that was cured, It is the Sabbath day: it is not lawful for thee to carry thy bed.

II

11 HE ANSWERED them, He that made me whole, the same said unto me, Take up thy bed, and walk.

12 THEN asked they him, What man is that which said unto thee, Take up thy bed, and walk? 13 AND he that was healed wist not who it was: for Jesus had conveyed himself away, a multitude being in that place.

14 AFTERWARD Jesus findeth him in the temple, and said unto him, Behold, thou art made whole: sin no more, lest a worse thing come unto thee.

15 THE man departed, and told the Jews that it was Jesus, which had made him whole.

THE WITHERED HAND RESTORED.
GALILEE. MATTHEW XII: 9-13.

A

ND when he was departed thence, he went into their synagogue:

10 AND, behold, there was a man which had his hand withered. And they asked him, saying, Is it lawful to heal on the sabbath days? that they might accuse him.

II

AND he said unto them, What man shall there be

among you, that shall have one sheep, and if it fall into a pit on the sabbath day, will he not lay hold on it, and lift it out?

How much then is a man better than a sheep? 12 Wherefore it is lawful to do well on the sabbath days.

THEN saith he to the man, Stretch forth thine 13 hand. And he stretched it forth; and it was restored whole, like as the other.

MANY ARE HEALED AT THE SEA OF GALILEE.
MARK III: 6-15.

ND the Pharisees went forth, and straightway

A took counsel with the Herodians against him, how they might destroy him.

6

BUT Jesus withdrew himself with his disciples to 7 the sea: and a great multitude from Galilee followed him, and from Judæa,

AND from Jerusalem, and from Idumæa, and 8 from beyond Jordan; and they about Tyre and Sidon, a great multitude, when they had heard what great things he did, came unto him.

AND he spake to his disciples, that a small ship 9 should wait on him because of the multitude, lest they should throng him.

FOR he had healed many; insomuch that they pressed upon him for to touch him, as many as had plagues.

II AND unclean spirits, when they saw him, fell down before him, and cried, saying, Thou art the Son of God.

12 AND he straitly charged them that they should not make him known.

13 AND he goeth up into a mountain, and calleth

unto him whom he would: and they came unto him. 14 AND he ordained twelve, that they should be with him, and that he might send them forth to preach,

15 AND to have power to heal sicknesses, and to cast out devils.

HEALS THE SERVANT OF THE CENTURION.
CAPERNAUM. MATTHEW VIII: 5-13.

ND when Jesus was entered into Capernaum,
A there came unto him a centurion, beseeching

him,

6 AND saying, Lord, my servant lieth at home sick of the palsy, grievously tormented.

7 AND Jesus saith unto him, I will come and heal him.

8 THE centurion answered and said, Lord, I am

not worthy that thou shouldest come under my roof: but speak the word only, and my servant shall be healed.

9 FOR I am a man under authority, having soldiers under me and I say to this man, Go, and he

goeth; and to another, Come, and he cometh;
and to my servant, Do this, and he doeth it.
WHEN Jesus heard it, he marvelled, and said to
them that followed, Verily I say unto you, I have
not found so great faith, no, not in Israel.
AND I
That
say unto you,
shall come from
many
the east and west, and shall sit down with Abra-
ham, and Isaac, and Jacob, in the kingdom of
heaven.

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

AND Jesus said unto the centurion, Go thy 13 way; and as thou hast believed, so be it done unto thee. And his servant was healed in the selfsame hour.

RAISES THE WIDOW'S SON TO LIFE.

Galilee, near MOUNT TABOR. LUKE VII: 11-16.

ND it came to pass the day after, that he went AND into a city called Nain; and many of his disciples went with him, and much people.

II

Now when he came nigh to the gate of the city, 12 behold, there was a dead man carried out, the only son of his mother, and she was a widow: and much people of the city was with her.

AND when the Lord saw her, he had compassion 13 on her, and said unto her, Weep not.
