'dom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father that is in heaven. Many will say to me in that day; 22 'Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and

' in thy name cast out demons? and in thy name done 'many wonders? And then I will profess unto them, I 23 never knew you; depart from me ye that work un' righteousness.

Therefore every one that heareth these my words, and 'doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, who built 'his house upon the rock. And the rain fell, and the 25 'floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that 'house; and it fell not, for it was founded on the rock. < And every one that heareth these my words and doeth 26 'them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, who built 'his house upon the sand. And the rain fell, and the 27 'floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that 'house; and it fell; and great was the fall of it.' And 28 it came to pass, when Jesus ended these words, the crowds were astonished at his teaching; for he taught 29 them as one having authority, and not as the scribes.

And when he was come down from the mountain great crowds followed him. And behold, a leper came and 2 worshipped him, saying; Lord, if thou wilt, thou canst 'make me clean,' And Jesus put forth his hand and touched him, saying; 'I will, be thou cleansed.' And straightway his leprosy was cleansed. And Jesus saith to him; See that thou tell no one; but go, shew thyself 'to the priest, and take the gift which Moses commanded 'for a witness unto them.'

And when he was entered into Capernaum, a centurion came unto him, beseeching him; and saying; 'Lord, my servant lieth at home sick of the palsy, grievously tor'mented.' And Jesus saith unto him; I will come and 'heal him.' And the centurion answered and said; 'Lord, I am not worthy that thou shouldest enter under my roof; but only command by word, and my servant will be healed. 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 slave; Do this, and he doeth it.' And when Jesus 10

heard, he marvelled, and said to them that followed; 'Verily I say unto you, I have not found so great faith 11 in Israel. And I say unto you, that many will come 'from the east and from the west, and will lie down 'with Abraham and Isaac and Jacob, in the kingdom of 12 'heaven; but the children of the kingdom will be cast 'out into the outer darkness; there will be the weeping 13 and the gnashing of teeth.' And Jesus said unto the centurion; Go, and be it done to thee as thou hast 'believed.' And his servant was healed in that very hour. And when Jesus was come into Peter's house, he saw his wife's mother lying, and sick of a fever. And he touched her hand, and the fever left her; and she arose 16 and ministered unto them. And when it was evening,

they brought unto him many demoniacs; and he cast out 17 the spirits with a word, and healed all the sick; so that it might be fulfilled that was spoken through Isaiah the prophet, saying; He himself took our weaknesses, and bare our sicknesses.

And when Jesus saw great crowds about him, he gave 19 command to go unto the other side. And a certain scribe came and said unto him; Teacher, I will follow thee 'wherever thou goest.' And Jesus saith unto him; The 'foxes have holes, and the birds of the air have nests, but 'the Son of man hath not where to lay his head.' And another of his disciples said unto him; 'Lord, suffer me 'first to go and bury my father.' But Jesus said unto him; Follow me, and leave the dead to bury their dead.' 23 And when he was entered into the boat, his disciples 24 followed him. And behold, there arose a great tempest in the lake, so that the boat was being covered with the waves; and he was asleep. And the disciples came and 26 awoke him, saying; 'Lord, save us, we perish.' And he saith unto them; Why are ye fearful, ye of little faith?' Then he arose and rebuked the winds and the sea; and 27 there was a great calm. And the men marvelled, saying; 'What is this man, that even the winds and the sea obey 'him ? '

And when he was come to the other side, into the country of the Gergesenes, there met him two demoniacs,

coming out of the tombs, very fierce, so that no one could pass by that road. And behold, they cried out, saying; 29 What hast thou to do with us, thou son of God? art 'thou come here to torment us before the time?' And 30 there was a good way off from them an herd of many swine feeding. And the demons besought him, saying; 'If thou cast us out, send us into the herd of swine.' And he said unto them; 'Go.' And when they were come out, they went into the swine. And behold, the whole herd rushed down the cliff into the lake, and perished in the waters. And they that fed them fled, 33 and went into the city, and told every thing, and about the demoniacs. And behold, the whole city came out to meet Jesus; and when they saw him, they besought him that he would depart from their neighbourhood.

And he entered into the boat, and crossed over, and came into his own city. And behold, they brought to him a man sick of the palsy, lying on a bed. seeing their faith, said to the palsied man; good cheer; thy sins are forgiven thee.' some of the scribes said within themselves; "This man 'blasphemeth.' And Jesus, seeing their thoughts, said; 'Why think ye evil in your hearts? For which is easier; 'to say; Thy sins are forgiven; or to say; Arise and 'walk? But that ye may know that the Son of man 'hath power on earth to forgive sins;' then he saith to the palsied man; Arise, take thy bed, and go into thine 'house.' And he arose, and went into his house. the crowds that saw it marvelled, and gave glory to God, who had given such power unto men.

And as Jesus passed forth from thence, he saw a man, named Matthew, sitting at the tax-office; and he saith unto him; Follow me.' And he arose and followed him. And it came to pass, as he lay at meat in the 10 house, behold, many tax-gatherers and sinners came and lay down with Jesus and his disciples. And when the 11 Pharisees saw, they said unto his disciples; Why eateth 'your teacher with the tax-gatherers and sinners? But 12 when Jesus heard, he said unto them; They that are 'strong need not a physician, but they that are sick. But 13

'go ye and learn what this is; I wish for mercy and not 'for sacrifice; for I am not come to call righteous men, 14 but sinners.' Then came to him John's disciples, saying; Why do we and the Pharisees fast often, but thy 15 disciples fast not?' And Jesus said unto them; 'Can 'the children of the bride-chamber mourn, while the

bridegroom is with them? But days will come when 'the bridegroom will be taken from them, and then they 16 'will fast. No one putteth a patch of new cloth on an 'old cloak; for it taketh its wholeness from the cloak, and the rent becometh worse. Neither do they put new 'wine into old skins; else the skins burst and the wine 'runneth out, and the skins perish. But they put new 'wine into new skins, and both are saved.'

While he was speaking these things unto them, behold, a certain ruler came and worshipped him, saying; 'My 'daughter is even now dead; but come and lay thy hand 'on her, and she will live.' And Jesus arose, and fol20 lowed him, and so did his disciples. And behold, a woman who had had an issue of blood for twelve years

21 came behind him, and touched the hem of his cloak; for she said within herself; 'If I do but touch his cloak, I 'shall be healed.' But Jesus turned, and seeing her, said; ‘Daughter, be of good cheer: thy faith hath healed 'thee.' And the woman was healed from that hour. 23 And when Jesus came into the ruler's house, and saw the 24 pipers, and the crowd making a noise, he saith unto

them; Leave the place; for the maiden is not dead, but 25 'sleepeth.' And they laughed at him. But when the

crowd was put out, he went in, and took her hand; and 26 the maiden arose. And the fame thereof went abroad into all that land.

And as Jesus went thence, two blind men followed him, crying out, and saying; 'Have pity on us, thou son of 28 David.' And when he came into the house, the blind

men came to him; and Jesus saith unto them; 'Do ye 'believe that I am able to do this?' They say to him; 29 Yea, Lord.' Then he touched their eyes, saying; 'Ac30 'cording to your faith, be it done unto you.' And their

eyes were opened. And Jesus charged them, saying;

*

See that no one know it.' But they went out and spread 31 abroad his fame in all that land.

As as they went out, behold, they brought to him a 32 dumb man, a demoniac. And when the demon was cast 33 out, the dumb man spake. And the crowds marvelled, saying; 'It was never so seen in Israel.' And the Pha- 34 risees said; He casts out the demons by the prince of the 'demons.'

And Jesus went about all the cities and villages, teach- 35 ing in their synagogues, and preaching the good tidings of the kingdom, and healing every sickness and every disease. And when he saw the crowds he was moved 36 with pity for them, because they were weary and cast down, as sheep having no shepherd. Then he saith unto 37 his disciples; The harvest indeed is great, but the 'labourers are few; pray ye therefore the Lord of the 38 ‘harvest, that he will send forth labourers into his harvest.' And when he had called his twelve disciples, he them power over unclean spirits, so as to cast them out, and to heal every sickness and every disease. Now the names of the twelve apostles are these; first Simon called Peter, and Andrew his brother; James the son of Zebedee, and John his brother; Philip and Bartholomew; Thomas, and Matthew the tax-gatherer; James the son of Alphæus, and Lebbæus surnamed Thaddeus; Simon the Canaanite, and Judas the Iscariot, who also betrayed him. Jesus sent forth these twelve, and commanded them, saying; 'Go not into the way of the Gentiles, and enter no city 'of the Samaritans; but go rather to the lost sheep of 'the house of Israel. And as ye go, preach, saying; The 'kingdom of heaven is at hand. Heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse the lepers, cast out the demons; freely ye 'have received, freely give. Provide neither gold, nor silver, nor copper, in your purses; not a scrip for the 10 'journey, nor two coats, nor shoes, nor a staff; for the 'workman is worthy of his food. And into whatever 'city or village ye enter, ask who in it is worthy; and 'there abide till you go thence. And when ye come into 12 'the house, salute it. And if the house be worthy, let 13 'your peace come upon it; but if it be not worthy, let
