1 Then came to
Jesus scribes and Pharisees, which were of Jerusalem, saying,
2 Why do thy disciples transgress the tradition of the elders?
for they wash not their hands when they eat bread.
3 But he answered and said unto them, Why do ye also transgress
the commandment of God by your tradition?
4 For God commanded, saying, Honour thy father and mother: and,
He that curseth father or mother, let him die the death.
5 But ye say, Whosoever shall say to his father or his mother,
It is a gift, by whatsoever thou mightest be profited by me;
6 And honour not his father or his mother, he shall be free.
Thus have ye made the commandment of God of none effect by your
7 Ye hypocrites, well did Esaias prophesy of you, saying,
8 This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoureth
me with their lips; but their heart is far from me.
9 But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the
commandments of men.
10 And he called the multitude, and said unto them, Hear, and
11 Not that which goeth into the mouth defileth a man; but that
which cometh out of the mouth, this defileth a man.
12 Then came his disciples, and said unto him, Knowest thou
that the Pharisees were offended, after they heard this saying?
13 But he answered and said, Every plant, which my heavenly
Father hath not planted, shall be rooted up.
14 Let them alone: they be blind leaders of the blind. And if
the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch.
15 Then answered Peter and said unto him, Declare unto us this
16 And Jesus said, Are ye also yet without understanding?
17 Do not ye yet understand, that whatsoever entereth in at
the mouth goeth into the belly, and is cast out into the draught?
18 But those things which proceed out of the mouth come forth
from the heart; and they defile the man.
19 For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries,
fornications, thefts, false witness, blasphemies:
20 These are the things which defile a man: but to eat with
unwashen hands defileth not a man.
21 Then Jesus went thence, and departed into the coasts of Tyre
22 And, behold, a woman of Canaan came out of the same coasts,
and cried unto him, saying, Have mercy on me, O Lord, thou Son
of David; my daughter is grievously vexed with a devil.
23 But he answered her not a word. And his disciples came and
besought him, saying, Send her away; for she crieth after us.
24 But he answered and said, I am not sent but unto the lost
sheep of the house of Israel.
25 Then came she and worshipped him, saying, Lord, help me.
26 But he answered and said, It is not meet to take the children's
bread, and to cast it to dogs.
27 And she said, Truth, Lord: yet the dogs eat of the crumbs
which fall from their masters' table.
28 Then Jesus answered and said unto her, O woman, great is
thy faith: be it unto thee even as thou wilt. And her daughter
was made whole from that very hour.
29 And Jesus departed from thence, and came nigh unto the sea
of Galilee; and went up into a mountain, and sat down there.
30 And great multitudes came unto him, having with them those
that were lame, blind, dumb, maimed, and many others, and cast
them down at Jesus' feet; and he healed them:
31 Insomuch that the multitude wondered, when they saw the dumb
to speak, the maimed to be whole, the lame to walk, and the
blind to see: and they glorified the God of Israel.
32 Then Jesus called his disciples unto him, and said, I have
compassion on the multitude, because they continue with me now
three days, and have nothing to eat: and I will not send them
away fasting, lest they faint in the way.
33 And his disciples say unto him, Whence should we have so
much bread in the wilderness, as to fill so great a multitude?
34 And Jesus saith unto them, How many loaves have ye? And they
said, Seven, and a few little fishes.
35 And he commanded the multitude to sit down on the ground.
36 And he took the seven loaves and the fishes, and gave thanks,
and brake them, and gave to his disciples, and the disciples
to the multitude.
37 And they did all eat, and were filled: and they took up of
the broken meat that was left seven baskets full.
38 And they that did eat were four thousand men, beside women
39 And he sent away the multitude, and took ship, and came into
the coasts of Magdala.
1 The Pharisees
also with the Sadducees came, and tempting desired him that
he would shew them a sign from heaven.
2 He answered and said unto them, When it is evening, ye say,
It will be fair weather: for the sky is red.
3 And in the morning, It will be foul weather to day: for the
sky is red and lowring. O ye hypocrites, ye can discern the
face of the sky; but can ye not discern the signs of the times?
4 A wicked and adulterous generation seeketh after a sign; and
there shall no sign be given unto it, but the sign of the prophet
Jonas. And he left them, and departed.
5 And when his disciples were come to the other side, they had
forgotten to take bread.
6 Then Jesus said unto them, Take heed and beware of the leaven
of the Pharisees and of the Sadducees.
7 And they reasoned among themselves, saying, It is because
we have taken no bread.
8 Which when Jesus perceived, he said unto them, O ye of little
faith, why reason ye among yourselves, because ye have brought
9 Do ye not yet understand, neither remember the five loaves
of the five thousand, and how many baskets ye took up?
10 Neither the seven loaves of the four thousand, and how many
baskets ye took up?
11 How is it that ye do not understand that I spake it not to
you concerning bread, that ye should beware of the leaven of
the Pharisees and of the Sadducees?
12 Then understood they how that he bade them not beware of
the leaven of bread, but of the doctrine of the Pharisees and
of the Sadducees.
13 When Jesus came into the coasts of Caesarea Philippi, he
asked his disciples, saying, Whom do men say that I the Son
of man am?
14 And they said, Some say that thou art John the Baptist: some,
Elias; and others, Jeremias, or one of the prophets.
15 He saith unto them, But whom say ye that I am?
16 And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ, the
Son of the living God.
17 And Jesus answered and said unto him, Blessed art thou, Simon
Bar-jona: for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee,
but my Father which is in heaven.
18 And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this
rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not
prevail against it.
19 And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven:
and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven:
and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in
20 Then charged he his disciples that they should tell no man
that he was Jesus the Christ.
21 From that time forth began Jesus to shew unto his disciples,
how that he must go unto Jerusalem, and suffer many things of
the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be killed, and
be raised again the third day.
22 Then Peter took him, and began to rebuke him, saying, Be
it far from thee, Lord: this shall not be unto thee.
23 But he turned, and said unto Peter, Get thee behind me, Satan:
thou art an offence unto me: for thou savourest not the things
that be of God, but those that be of men.
24 Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come
after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow
25 For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: and whosoever
will lose his life for my sake shall find it.
26 For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world,
and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange
for his soul?
27 For the Son of man shall come in the glory of his Father
with his angels; and then he shall reward every man according
to his works.
28 Verily I say unto you, There be some standing here, which
shall not taste of death, till they see the Son of man coming
in his kingdom.
