Luke xi. 1. tain place, when he ceased, one of his disciples said unto Uncertain,

him, Lord, teach us to pray, as John also taught his dis- probably on

ciples.
2. And he said unto them, When ye pray, say, Our Fa-

ther which art in heaven, hallowed be thy name. Thy
kingdom come. Thy will be done, as in heaven, so in
earth.

Give us day by day our daily bread.
4. And forgive us our sins; for we also forgive every one

that is indebted to us. And lead us not into temptation ;
but deliver us from evil.

And he said unto them, Which of you shall have a
friend, and shall go unto him at midnight, and say unto
him, Friend, lend me three loaves :

For a friend of mine in his journey is come to me, and
I have nothing to set before him?
7. And he from within shall answer and say, Trouble me
not: the door is now shut, and

my

children are with me
in bed; I cannot rise and give thee.
8. I say unto you, Though he will not rise and give him,

because he is his friend, yet because of his importunity he

will rise and give him as much as he needeth.
9. And I say unto you, Ask, and it shall be given you;

seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened

unto you. 10.

For every one that asketh receiveth ; and he that seeketh findeth: and to him that knocketh it shall be opened. 11. If a son shall ask bread of any of you that is a father,

will he give him a stone ? or if he ask a fish, will he for a

fish give him a serpent ?
12. Or if he shall ask an egg, will he offer him a scorpion ?
13. If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts

unto your children: how much more shall your heavenly
Father give the Holy Spirit to them that ask him ?

SECTION XII.

Christ reproves the Pharisees and Lawyers.

LUKE xi. 37. to the end.
Luke xi. 37. And as he spake, a certain Pharisee besought him to

dine with him; and he went in, and sat down to meat.
38. And when the Pharisee saw it, he marvelled, that he

had not first washed before dinner.
39. And the Lord said unto him, Now do ye

Pharisees
make clean the outside of the cup, and the platter ; but

your inward part is full of ravening and wickedness.
40. Ye fools, did not he that made that which is without,

inake that which is within also ?

Luke xi. 41. But rather give alms of such things as ye have; and, Uncertain, behold, all things are clean unto you.

probably on

a tour. 42. But woe unto you, Pharisees ! for ye tithe mint and rue,

and all manner of herbs, and pass over judgment and the
love of God: these ought ye to have done, and not to

leave the other undone.
43. Woe unto you, Pharisees ! for ye love the uttermost

seats in the synagogues, and greetings in the markets.
44.

Woe unto you, Scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites ! for
ye are as graves, which appear not; and the men that

walk over them are not aware of them.
45, Then answered one of the Lawyers, and said unto him,

Master, thus saying thou reproachest us also.
46. And he said, 'Woe unto you also, ye Lawyers! for ye

lade men with burdens grievous to be borne, and ye your

selves touch not the burdens with one of your fingers.
47. Woe unto you! for ye build the sepulchres of the pro-

phets, and your fathers killed them.
48. Truly ye bear witness that ye allow the deeds of your

fathers : for they indeed killed them, and ye build their

sepulchres.
49. Therefore also said the wisdom of God, I will send

them prophets and apostles, and some of them they shall

slay and persecute :
60. That the blood of all the prophets, which was shed

from the foundation of the world, may be required of this

generation :
61. From the blood of Abel unto the blood of Zacharias,

which perished between the altar and the temple: verily

I say unto you, It shall be required of this generation.
52. Woe unto you, Lawyers ! for ye have taken away the

key of knowledge: ye enter not in yourselves, and them
that were entering in ye hindered.

And as he said these things unto them, the Scribes and
the Pharisees began to urge him vehemently, and to pro-

voke him to speak of many things:
54. Laying wait for him, and seeking to catch something

out of his mouth, that they might accuse him.

SECTION XIII.
Christ cautions his Disciples against Hypocrisy.

LUKE xii. 1-12.
Luke xii. 1. In the mean time, when there were gathered together

an innumerable multitude of people, insomuch that they
trode one upon another, he began to say unto his disciples
first of all, Beware ye of the leaven of the Pharisees,
which is hypocrisy.

probably on

a tour. 3. Therefore whatsoever ye have spoken in darkness shall

be heard in the light ; and that which ye have spoken in

the ear in closets shall be proclaimed upon the housetops. 4. And I say unto you, my friends, Be not afraid of them

that kill the body, and after that have no more that they

can do.
5. But I will forewarn you whom shall fear : Fear him,

which after he hath killed hath power to cast into hell !

yea, I say unto you, Fear him.
6. Are not five sparrows sold for two farthings ? and not
one of them is forgotten before God.

But even the very hairs of your head are all numbered.
Fear not therefore: ye are of more value than many

sparrows..
8. Also I say unto unto you, Whosoever shall confess me

before men, him shall the Son of Man also confess be-
fore the angels of God:

But he that denieth me before men, shall be denied
before the angels of God.
10. And whosoever shall speak a word against the Son of

Man, it shall be forgiven him ; but unto him that blas

phemeth against the Holy Ghost, it shall not be forgiven. 11. And when they bring you unto the synagogues, and

unto magistrates, and powers, take ye no thought how

or what thing ye shall answer, or what ye
12. For the Holy Ghost shall teach you in the same hour

what ye ought to say.

shall say:

SECTION XIV.
Christ refuses to act as a Judge.

LUKE xii. 13, 14.
Luke xii.13. And one of the company said unto him, Master, speak

to my brother, that he divide the inheritance with me.
14. And he said unto him, Man, who made me a judge, or

à divider among you ?

SECTION XV.
Christ cautions the Multitude against Worldly-mindedness.

LUKE xii. 15_34.
Luke xii.15. And he said unto them, Take heed, and beware of co-

vetousness : for a man's life consisteth not in the abun

dance of the things which he possesseth.
16. And he spake a parable unto them, saying, The ground

of a certain rich man brought forth plentifully:
17. And he thought within himself, saying, What shall I

do, because I have no room where to bestow my fruits ?

Luke xii.18. And he said, This will I do: I will pull down my Uncertain,

probably on barns, and build greater : and there will I bestow all my

a tour. fruits and my goods. 19.

And I will say to my soul, Soul, thou hast much
goods laid up for many years: take thine ease, eat, drink,

and be merry.
20. But God said unto him, Thou fool! this night thy

soul shall be required of thee : then whose shall those

things be which thou hast provided ?
21. So is he that layeth up treasure for himself, and is not

rich toward God.
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.
24. Consider 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 ?

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 ?

Consider the lilies how they grow: they toil not, they
spin not; and yet I say unto you, that Solomon in all his

glory was not arrayed like one of these.
28. If then God so clothe the grass, which is to day in the

field, and to morrow is cast into the oven; how much

more will he clothe you, O ye of little faith?
29. And seek not ye what ye shall eat, or what ye

shall
drink, neither be ye of doubtful mind.
30. For all these things do the nations of the world seek

after: and your Father knoweth that ye have need of

these things.
31. But rather seek ye the kingdom of God; and all these

things shall be added unto you.
32.

Fear not, little flock : for it is your Father's good plea-
sure to give you the kingdom.
33. 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 cor-

rupteth.
34. For where your treasure is, there will your heart be

also.

SECTION XVI.

Christ exhorts to Watchfulness, Fidelity, and Repentance.

LUKE xii. 35 to the end, and LUKE xiii. 1-9. Luke xï.35.

Let your loins be girded about, and your lights Uncertain, burning;

probably on

a tour. 36.

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 imme-

diately.
37. 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 ser

vants.
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.
41. 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 house

hold, to give them their portion of meat in due season?
43. 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 delay-

eth his coming; and shall begin to beat the men servants

and maidens, and to eat and drink, and to be drunken:
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 por-

tion with the unbelievers.
47. And that servant which knew his Lord's will, and pre-

pared 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 re-
quired : 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 ?
