son; for he is lunatic, and sore
vexed: for ofttimes he falleth
into the fire, and oft into the

water. ió And I brought him to thy jo, and they could not cure n1nn. if Then Jesus answered and said, O faithless and perverse generation, how o; shall I be with you? how longshall I suffer you?' bring him hither to me. 18 And Jesus rebuked the devill; and he departed out of him: and the child was cured from that very hour. - 19 Then came the disciples to Jesus apart, and, said, could not we cast him out? 20 And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief; for verily I say o If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, }. say unto this mountain, move hence to yonder place; and it shall remove: and nothing shall be impossible unto you. 21 Howbeit this kind goeth not but by prayer and fasting. And while they abode in Galilee, Jesus said unto them, The Son of man shall be betrayed into the hands of men: 23 And they shallkill him, and the third day he shall be raised again. And they were exceeding sorry. 241 And when they were come to . Capernaum, they that received tribute money came to Peter, and said, Doth not your master pay tribute? 25 He saith, Yes. And when he was come into the house, Jesus prevented him, saying, What thinkest thou, Simon? of whom do the kings of the earth take custom or tribute 7 of their own children, or of strangers? 26 Peter saith unto him, .

T the same time came the disciples unto Jesus, saying, Who is the greatestin the kingdom of heaven? - 2 And Jesus called a little child unto him, and set him in the midst of them. . 3 And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingom of heaven. 4 Whosoever, therefore shall humble, himself as this little child, the same is greatest in

y the kingdom of heaven.

5 And whoso shall receive one such little child in my name receiveth me. 6. But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea. 7 Woe unto the world because of offences! for it must needs be that offences come; but woe to that man by whom the of. fence cometh:. 8 Wherefore if thy hand orth foot offend thee, cut them off, and cast them from thee: it is better for thee to enter into life halt or maimed, rather than having two hands or two feet to be cast into everlasting fire; 9 And if thine eye offend thee, pluck it out, and cast it from thee: it is better for thee to enterinto life with one eye, rather than having two eyes to be cast into hell fire. 10 Take heed that ye despise not one of these little ones; for I say unto you, That in heaven their angels do always behold the face of my Father which is in heaven. 11 For the Son of man is come to save that which was lost. 12 How think ve? if a man have a hundred sheep, and one

13 And if so be that he find it,

14. Even so it is not the will of
your Father which is in heav-
en, that one of these little ones

should perish. 15 "I Moer if thy brother shall trespass against thee, go and tell him his fault between thee and him alone: if he shall hear thee, thou hast gained thy brother. 15 But if he will not hear thee, then take with thee one or two more... that in the mouth of two or three witnesses every word may be established. 17 And if he shall, neglect, to hear them, tell, it unto the church: but if he neglect to hear the church, let him be unto thee as a heathen man and a publican. 18 Verily 1say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven; and whatsoever, ye shall loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven. 15 Again. I say unto you, That if two of you shall agree, on earth as touching anything that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven. 20. For where two or three are gathered together in my name, eam I in the midst of them. Then game Peter to hi and, said, Lord, how oft shal #. brother sin against me, and I forgive him? till seven times? 22 Jesus saith, unto him, I say not untothee, Untilseventimes: but, Until seventy times seven. 23. Therefore is the kingdom of heaven likened unto a certain king, which would take account of his servants. 24 And when he had begun to reckon, one was brought unto him, which owed him ten thousand talents. ;

25 But forasmuch as he had not to pay, his lord commanded him to be sold, and his wife, and children, and all that he i. and payment to be made. 26 The servant therefore fell down, and worshipped him, saying, Lord, have patience with me, and iwiji pay thee all. Then the lord of that servant was, moved with compassion, and loosed him, and forgave him the debt. 28 But the same servant went out, and found one of his fellow servants, which owed, him & hundred pence: and, he laid hands on him, and took him, by the throat, saying, Pay me that thou owest. 29 And his fellow servant fell down at his feet, and besought him, saying, Have patience with me, and I will É. thee all. 30 And he would not: but went and cast him into prison, e should pay the debt. 31 So when his fellow servants saw what was done, they were very sqrry, and, came an unto their lord all that was one. 32 Then his lord, after that he had called him, said unto him, O thou wicked servant, I for. gave thee all that debt, because thou desiredst me: 33 Shouldest not thou also have had compassion on o fellow servant, even as I had pity on thee ? 34. And his lord was wroth, and delivered him to the tormentors, till he should pay all that was due unto him. 35 So likewise shall my heavenly Father do also unto you, if ye from your hearts forgive #. every one his brother their

3 The Pharisees also came unto him, tempting him, and saying unto him, Is it lawful for a man to put away his wife for every cause? 4 And he answered and said unto them, Have ye, not read, that he which made them at the beginning made them male and

emale, . 5 And said, For this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife; and they twain shall be one flesh? 6 Wherefore they are no more twain,but one flesh. Whattherefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder. 7. They say unto him, Why did Moses then command to give a writing of divorcement, and to put her away? 8 He saith, unto them, Moses because of the hardness of your hearts suffered you to put away your wives: but from the beginning it was not so. 9 And I say unto you, Whosoever shall put away his wife, except it be for fornication, and shall marry another, committeth adultery: and whoso marrieth her which, is put away doth commit adultery. 10. His disciples say unto him, If the case of the man be so with his wife, it is not good to marry; ii. But he said unto them, Ali men cannot receive, this saying, save they to whom it is e

given. 12 Forthere are some eunuchs, which were so born from their mother's womb : and there are some eunuchs, which were made eunuchs, of men: , and there be eunuchs, which have made themselves eunuchs for the kingdom, of heaven's sake, He that is able to receive it, let him receive it. 13 T.
