22 And he said unto his disciples, Therefore, I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what
ye shall eat; neither for the body, what ye shall put on.
23 The life is more than meat, and the body is more than raiment. sider the ravens: for they neither sow nor reap; which neither have storehouse nor barn; and God feedeth them: how much more are ye better than the fowls ?
25 And which of you with taking thought can add to his stature one cubit ? 26 If ye then be not able to do that thing which is least, why take ye thought for the rest ? 27 Consider the lilies how they grow: they toil not, they spin and
that Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. 28 If then God so clothe the
which is today in the field, and to-morrow is cast into the oven; how much more will he clothe
you, O ye of little faith?
And seek not ye what ye shall eat, or
of doubtful mind. For all these things do the nations of the world seek after: and your Father knoweth that ye have need of these things. rather seek ye the kingdom of God; and all these things shall be added unto you. not, little flock; for it is your Father's good pleasure to give you the kingdom. * Sell that ye have, and give alms; provide yourselves bags which wax not old, a treasure in the heavens that faileth not, where no thief approacheth, neither moth corrupteth. where your treasure is, there will your heart be also. Let your
loins be girded about, and your lights burning; and
ye yourselves like unto men that wait for their lord, when he will return from the wedding; that when he cometh and knocketh they may open unto him immediately Blessed are those servants, whom the lord when he cometh shall find watching: verily I say unto you, that he shall gird himself, and make them to sit down to
meat, and will come forth and serve them. 38 And if he shall come in the second watch, or come in the third watch, and find them so, blessed are those servants. 39 And this know, that if the good man of the house had known what hour the thief would come, he would have watched, and not have suffered his house to be broken through.
40 Be ye therefore ready also: for the Son of man cometh at an hour when ye think not.
4 Then Peter said unto him, Lord, speakest thou this parable unto us, or even to all ? 42 And the Lord said, Who then is that faithful and wise steward, whom his lord shall make ruler over his household, to give them their portion of meat in due season ? #3 Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he cometh shall find so doing.
44 Of a truth I
say unto you, that he will make him ruler over all that he hath. 45 But and if that servant say in his heart, My lord delayeth his coming; and shall begin to beat the menservants and maidens, and to eat and drink, and to be
46 the lord of that servant will come in a day when he looketh not for him, and at an hour when he is not aware, and will cut him in sunder, and will appoint him his portion with the unbelievers. *7 And that servant, which knew his lord's will, and prepared not himself, neither did according to his will, shall be beaten with many stripes.
But he that knew not, and did commit things worthy of stripes, shall be beaten with few stripes. For unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required: and to whom men have committed much, of him they will ask the more.
49 I am come to send fire on the earth; and what will I, if it be already kindled ? I have a baptism to be baptized with; and how am I straitened till it be accomplished !
Suppose ye that I am come to give peace on earth ? I tell you, Nay; but rather division : 52 for from henceforth there shall be five in one house divided, three against two, and two against three. 53 The father shall be divided against the son, and the son against
the father; the mother against the daughter, and the daughter against the mother; the mother-in-law against her daughter-in-law, and the daughter-in-law against her motherin-law.
54 And he said also to the people, When ye see a cloud rise out of the west, straightway ye say, There cometh a shower; and so it is. 55 And when ye see the south wind blow, ye say, There will be heat; and it cometh to pass. ** Ye hypocrites, ye can discern the face of the sky and of the earth; but how is it that ye do not discern this time? Yea, and why even of yourselves judge ye not what is right?
38 When thou goest with thine adversary to the magistrate, as thou art in the way, give diligence that thou mayest be delivered from him ; lest he hale thee to the judge, and the judge deliver thee to the officer, and the officer cast thee into prison.
9 I tell thee, thou shalt not depart thence, till thou hast paid the very last mite.
