And he left the linen cloth, and fled from them naked. 53 T And they led Jesus awa to the high priest; and wit him were assembled all the chief priests and the elders and the scribes. 54 And Peter, followed him. afar off, even into the palace of the high priest: and he sat with the servants, and warmed himself at the fire. 55 And the chief priests and all the council sought for witness against Jesus to put him to death; and found none. 56 For many bare false witness against him, but their witness agreed not together. And there arose certain, and bare false witness against him, saying, - 55 We heard him say, I will destroy this temple that is made with hands, and within three days I will build another made without hands. - - 59 But neither so did their witness agree together. . 60 And the high priest stood up in the midst, and asked JeSus, 8aying, Answerest thou nothing what is it which these witness against thee! 61 But he held his peace, and answered nothing.

And they all condemned him to be guilty of death. 65 And, some began to spit on him, and to cover his face, and to buffet him, and to say unto hirn, Prophesy: and the servants did strike him with the palms of their hands. 66 is And as Peter was beneath in the palace, there cometh one of the maids of the high priest : 64

And Peter called to mind the word that Jesus said unto him, Before the cock crow twice, thou shalt deny me thrice. And when he thought thereon, he wept. CHAPTER xv. Christ's trial and crucifixion.

CHAPTER I. The birth of John the Baptist. RASMUCH, as many have taken in hand to set forth in - - those things which are most surely believed among us;. 2 Even as they delivered them unto us, which ning were eyewitnesses, and ministers of the word; 3. It seemed good to me also, ving had perfect understanding of all things from the very rst, to write unto thee in order, most excellent.Theophilus, 4 That thou mightest know the certainty of those things, wherein thou hast been instructed. 5 THERE was in the days of Herod, the king of Judea, a certain priest named Zacha: rias, of the course of Abia; and his wife was of the daughters of Aaron, and her name was Elisabeth. 6 And they were both right: eous before God, walking in all the commandynents, and ordinances of the Lord blameless. 7 And they had no child, because that Elisabeth was barren; and they both were now well stricken in years. 8 And it came to lo, that, while he executed the priest's office before God in the order of his course, 9 According to the custom of the priest's office, his lot was to burn incense when he went into the temple of the Lord. 10 And the whole multitude of the people were praying without at the time of incense. 11 And there appeared unto him an angel of the Lord standing on the right side of the altar liacense.

And my spirit hath rejoiced in God my Saviour. 48 For he hath regarded the low estate of his handmaiden: for, behold, from henceforth all gen. erations shall call me blessed. or he that is mighty hath done to me great things; and holy is his name. 50 And his mercy is on them that fear him from generation to generation. 51 He hath shewed strength with his arm ; he hath scattered the proud in the imagination of their hearts. 52 He hath put down the mighty from their seats, and exal them of low degree. 53 He hath filled the hun with good things; and the ri he hath sent empty away.
