John 1 | John 4 | John 7

Luke 13

  1. There were present at that season some that told him of the Galilaeans, whose blood Pilate had mingled with their sacrifices.
  2. And Jesus answering said unto them, Suppose ye that these Galilaeans were sinners above all the Galilaeans, because they suffered such things?
  3. I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish.
  4. Or those eighteen, upon whom the tower in Siloam fell, and slew them, think ye that they were sinners above all men that dwelt in Jerusalem?
  5. I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish.
  6. He spake also this parable; A certain man had a fig tree planted in his vineyard; and he came and sought fruit thereon, and found none.
  7. Then said he unto the dresser of his vineyard, Behold, these three years I come seeking fruit on this fig tree, and find none: cut it down; why cumbereth it the ground?
  8. And he answering said unto him, Lord, let it alone this year also, till I shall dig about it, and dung it:
  9. And if it bear fruit, well: and if not, then after that thou shalt cut it down.
  10. And he was teaching in one of the synagogues on the sabbath.
  11. And, behold, there was a woman which had a spirit of infirmity eighteen years, and was bowed together, and could in no wise lift up herself.
  12. And when Jesus saw her, he called her to him, and said unto her, Woman, thou art loosed from thine infirmity.
  13. And he laid his hands on her: and immediately she was made straight, and glorified God.
  14. And the ruler of the synagogue answered with indignation, because that Jesus had healed on the sabbath day, and said unto the people, There are six days in which men ought to work: in them therefore come and be healed, and not on the sabbath day.
  15. The Lord then answered him, and said, Thou hypocrite, doth not each one of you on the sabbath loose his ox or his ass from the stall, and lead him away to watering?
  16. And ought not this woman, being a daughter of Abraham, whom Satan hath bound, lo, these eighteen years, be loosed from this bond on the sabbath day?
  17. And when he had said these things, all his adversaries were ashamed: and all the people rejoiced for all the glorious things that were done by him.
  18. Then said he, Unto what is the kingdom of God like? and whereunto shall I resemble it?
  19. It is like a grain of mustard seed, which a man took, and cast into his garden; and it grew, and waxed a great tree; and the fowls of the air lodged in the branches of it.
  20. And again he said, Whereunto shall I liken the kingdom of God?
  21. It is like leaven, which a woman took and hid in three measures of meal, till the whole was leavened.
  22. And he went through the cities and villages, teaching, and journeying toward Jerusalem.
  23. Then said one unto him, Lord, are there few that be saved? And he said unto them,
  24. Strive to enter in at the strait gate: for many, I say unto you, will seek to enter in, and shall not be able.
  25. When once the master of the house is risen up, and hath shut to the door, and ye begin to stand without, and to knock at the door, saying, Lord, Lord, open unto us; and he shall answer and say unto you, I know you not whence ye are:
  26. Then shall ye begin to say, We have eaten and drunk in thy presence, and thou hast taught in our streets.
  27. But he shall say, I tell you, I know you not whence ye are; depart from me, all ye workers of iniquity.
  28. There shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth, when ye shall see Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, and all the prophets, in the kingdom of God, and you yourselves thrust out.
  29. And they shall come from the east, and from the west, and from the north, and from the south, and shall sit down in the kingdom of God.
  30. And, behold, there are last which shall be first, and there are first which shall be last.
  31. The same day there came certain of the Pharisees, saying unto him, Get thee out, and depart hence: for Herod will kill thee.
  32. And he said unto them, Go ye, and tell that fox, Behold, I cast out devils, and I do cures to day and to morrow, and the third day I shall be perfected.
  33. Nevertheless I must walk to day, and to morrow, and the day following: for it cannot be that a prophet perish out of Jerusalem.
  34. O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, which killest the prophets, and stonest them that are sent unto thee; how often would I have gathered thy children together, as a hen doth gather her brood under her wings, and ye would not!
  35. Behold, your house is left unto you desolate: and verily I say unto you, Ye shall not see me, until the time come when ye shall say, Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord.

Luke 14

  1. And it came to pass, as he went into the house of one of the chief Pharisees to eat bread on the sabbath day, that they watched him.
  2. And, behold, there was a certain man before him which had the dropsy.
  3. And Jesus answering spake unto the lawyers and Pharisees, saying, Is it lawful to heal on the sabbath day?
  4. And they held their peace. And he took him, and healed him, and let him go;
  5. And answered them, saying, Which of you shall have an ass or an ox fallen into a pit, and will not straightway pull him out on the sabbath day?
  6. And they could not answer him again to these things.
  7. And he put forth a parable to those which were bidden, when he marked how they chose out the chief rooms; saying unto them,
  8. When thou art bidden of any man to a wedding, sit not down in the highest room; lest a more honourable man than thou be bidden of him;
  9. And he that bade thee and him come and say to thee, Give this man place; and thou begin with shame to take the lowest room.
  10. But when thou art bidden, go and sit down in the lowest room; that when he that bade thee cometh, he may say unto thee, Friend, go up higher: then shalt thou have worship in the presence of them that sit at meat with thee.
  11. For whosoever exalteth himself shall be abased; and he that humbleth himself shall be exalted.
  12. Then said he also to him that bade him, When thou makest a dinner or a supper, call not thy friends, nor thy brethren, neither thy kinsmen, nor thy rich neighbours; lest they also bid thee again, and a recompence be made thee.
  13. But when thou makest a feast, call the poor, the maimed, the lame, the blind:
  14. And thou shalt be blessed; for they cannot recompense thee: for thou shalt be recompensed at the resurrection of the just.
  15. And when one of them that sat at meat with him heard these things, he said unto him, Blessed is he that shall eat bread in the kingdom of God.
  16. Then said he unto him, A certain man made a great supper, and bade many:
  17. And sent his servant at supper time to say to them that were bidden, Come; for all things are now ready.
  18. And they all with one consent began to make excuse. The first said unto him, I have bought a piece of ground, and I must needs go and see it: I pray thee have me excused.
  19. And another said, I have bought five yoke of oxen, and I go to prove them: I pray thee have me excused.
  20. And another said, I have married a wife, and therefore I cannot come.
  21. So that servant came, and shewed his lord these things. Then the master of the house being angry said to his servant, Go out quickly into the streets and lanes of the city, and bring in hither the poor, and the maimed, and the halt, and the blind.
  22. And the servant said, Lord, it is done as thou hast commanded, and yet there is room.
  23. And the lord said unto the servant, Go out into the highways and hedges, and compel them to come in, that my house may be filled.
  24. For I say unto you, That none of those men which were bidden shall taste of my supper.
  25. And there went great multitudes with him: and he turned, and said unto them,
  26. If any man come to me, and hate not his father, and mother, and wife, and children, and brethren, and sisters, yea, and his own life also, he cannot be my disciple.
  27. And whosoever doth not bear his cross, and come after me, cannot be my disciple.
  28. For which of you, intending to build a tower, sitteth not down first, and counteth the cost, whether he have sufficient to finish it?
  29. Lest haply, after he hath laid the foundation, and is not able to finish it, all that behold it begin to mock him,
  30. Saying, This man began to build, and was not able to finish.
  31. Or what king, going to make war against another king, sitteth not down first, and consulteth whether he be able with ten thousand to meet him that cometh against him with twenty thousand?
  32. Or else, while the other is yet a great way off, he sendeth an ambassage, and desireth conditions of peace.
  33. So likewise, whosoever he be of you that forsaketh not all that he hath, he cannot be my disciple.
  34. Salt is good: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be seasoned?
  35. It is neither fit for the land, nor yet for the dunghill; but men cast it out. He that hath ears to hear, let him hear.

Luke 15

  1. Then drew near unto him all the publicans and sinners for to hear him.
  2. And the Pharisees and scribes murmured, saying, This man receiveth sinners, and eateth with them.
  3. And he spake this parable unto them, saying,
  4. What man of you, having an hundred sheep, if he lose one of them, doth not leave the ninety and nine in the wilderness, and go after that which is lost, until he find it?
  5. And when he hath found it, he layeth it on his shoulders, rejoicing.
  6. And when he cometh home, he calleth together his friends and neighbours, saying unto them, Rejoice with me; for I have found my sheep which was lost.
  7. I say unto you, that likewise joy shall be in heaven over one sinner that repenteth, more than over ninety and nine just persons, which need no repentance.
  8. Either what woman having ten pieces of silver, if she lose one piece, doth not light a candle, and sweep the house, and seek diligently till she find it?
  9. And when she hath found it, she calleth her friends and her neighbours together, saying, Rejoice with me; for I have found the piece which I had lost.
  10. Likewise, I say unto you, there is joy in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner that repenteth.
  11. And he said, A certain man had two sons:
  12. And the younger of them said to his father, Father, give me the portion of goods that falleth to me. And he divided unto them his living.
  13. And not many days after the younger son gathered all together, and took his journey into a far country, and there wasted his substance with riotous living.
  14. And when he had spent all, there arose a mighty famine in that land; and he began to be in want.
  15. And he went and joined himself to a citizen of that country; and he sent him into his fields to feed swine.
  16. And he would fain have filled his belly with the husks that the swine did eat: and no man gave unto him.
  17. And when he came to himself, he said, How many hired servants of my father's have bread enough and to spare, and I perish with hunger!
  18. I will arise and go to my father, and will say unto him, Father, I have sinned against heaven, and before thee,
  19. And am no more worthy to be called thy son: make me as one of thy hired servants.
  20. And he arose, and came to his father. But when he was yet a great way off, his father saw him, and had compassion, and ran, and fell on his neck, and kissed him.
  21. And the son said unto him, Father, I have sinned against heaven, and in thy sight, and am no more worthy to be called thy son.
  22. But the father said to his servants, Bring forth the best robe, and put it on him; and put a ring on his hand, and shoes on his feet:
  23. And bring hither the fatted calf, and kill it; and let us eat, and be merry:
  24. For this my son was dead, and is alive again; he was lost, and is found. And they began to be merry.
  25. Now his elder son was in the field: and as he came and drew nigh to the house, he heard musick and dancing.
  26. And he called one of the servants, and asked what these things meant.
  27. And he said unto him, Thy brother is come; and thy father hath killed the fatted calf, because he hath received him safe and sound.
  28. And he was angry, and would not go in: therefore came his father out, and intreated him.
  29. And he answering said to his father, Lo, these many years do I serve thee, neither transgressed I at any time thy commandment: and yet thou never gavest me a kid, that I might make merry with my friends:
  30. But as soon as this thy son was come, which hath devoured thy living with harlots, thou hast killed for him the fatted calf.
  31. And he said unto him, Son, thou art ever with me, and all that I have is thine.
  32. It was meet that we should make merry, and be glad: for this thy brother was dead, and is alive again; and was lost, and is found.

Luke 16

  1. And he said also unto his disciples, There was a certain rich man, which had a steward; and the same was accused unto him that he had wasted his goods.
  2. And he called him, and said unto him, How is it that I hear this of thee? give an account of thy stewardship; for thou mayest be no longer steward.
  3. Then the steward said within himself, What shall I do? for my lord taketh away from me the stewardship: I cannot dig; to beg I am ashamed.
  4. I am resolved what to do, that, when I am put out of the stewardship, they may receive me into their houses.
  5. So he called every one of his lord's debtors unto him, and said unto the first, How much owest thou unto my lord?
  6. And he said, An hundred measures of oil. And he said unto him, Take thy bill, and sit down quickly, and write fifty.
  7. Then said he to another, And how much owest thou? And he said, An hundred measures of wheat. And he said unto him, Take thy bill, and write fourscore.
  8. And the lord commended the unjust steward, because he had done wisely: for the children of this world are in their generation wiser than the children of light.
  9. And I say unto you, Make to yourselves friends of the mammon of unrighteousness; that, when ye fail, they may receive you into everlasting habitations.
  10. He that is faithful in that which is least is faithful also in much: and he that is unjust in the least is unjust also in much.
  11. If therefore ye have not been faithful in the unrighteous mammon, who will commit to your trust the true riches?
  12. And if ye have not been faithful in that which is another man's, who shall give you that which is your own?
  13. No servant can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.
  14. And the Pharisees also, who were covetous, heard all these things: and they derided him.
  15. And he said unto them, Ye are they which justify yourselves before men; but God knoweth your hearts: for that which is highly esteemed among men is abomination in the sight of God.
  16. The law and the prophets were until John: since that time the kingdom of God is preached, and every man presseth into it.
  17. And it is easier for heaven and earth to pass, than one tittle of the law to fail.
  18. Whosoever putteth away his wife, and marrieth another, committeth adultery: and whosoever marrieth her that is put away from her husband committeth adultery.
  19. There was a certain rich man, which was clothed in purple and fine linen, and fared sumptuously every day:
  20. And there was a certain beggar named Lazarus, which was laid at his gate, full of sores,
  21. And desiring to be fed with the crumbs which fell from the rich man's table: moreover the dogs came and licked his sores.
  22. And it came to pass, that the beggar died, and was carried by the angels into Abraham's bosom: the rich man also died, and was buried;
  23. And in hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments, and seeth Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom.
  24. And he cried and said, Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus, that he may dip the tip of his finger in water, and cool my tongue; for I am tormented in this flame.
  25. But Abraham said, Son, remember that thou in thy lifetime receivedst thy good things, and likewise Lazarus evil things: but now he is comforted, and thou art tormented.
  26. And beside all this, between us and you there is a great gulf fixed: so that they which would pass from hence to you cannot; neither can they pass to us, that would come from thence.
  27. Then he said, I pray thee therefore, father, that thou wouldest send him to my father's house:
  28. For I have five brethren; that he may testify unto them, lest they also come into this place of torment.
  29. Abraham saith unto him, They have Moses and the prophets; let them hear them.
  30. And he said, Nay, father Abraham: but if one went unto them from the dead, they will repent.
  31. And he said unto him, If they hear not Moses and the prophets, neither will they be persuaded, though one rose from the dead.

Luke 17

  1. Then said he unto the disciples, It is impossible but that offences will come: but woe unto him, through whom they come!
  2. It were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he cast into the sea, than that he should offend one of these little ones.
  3. Take heed to yourselves: If thy brother trespass against thee, rebuke him; and if he repent, forgive him.
  4. And if he trespass against thee seven times in a day, and seven times in a day turn again to thee, saying, I repent; thou shalt forgive him.
  5. And the apostles said unto the Lord, Increase our faith.
  6. And the Lord said, If ye had faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye might say unto this sycamine tree, Be thou plucked up by the root, and be thou planted in the sea; and it should obey you.
  7. But which of you, having a servant plowing or feeding cattle, will say unto him by and by, when he is come from the field, Go and sit down to meat?
  8. And will not rather say unto him, Make ready wherewith I may sup, and gird thyself, and serve me, till I have eaten and drunken; and afterward thou shalt eat and drink?
  9. Doth he thank that servant because he did the things that were commanded him? I trow not.
  10. So likewise ye, when ye shall have done all those things which are commanded you, say, We are unprofitable servants: we have done that which was our duty to do.
  11. And it came to pass, as he went to Jerusalem, that he passed through the midst of Samaria and Galilee.
  12. And as he entered into a certain village, there met him ten men that were lepers, which stood afar off:
  13. And they lifted up their voices, and said, Jesus, Master, have mercy on us.
  14. And when he saw them, he said unto them, Go shew yourselves unto the priests. And it came to pass, that, as they went, they were cleansed.
  15. And one of them, when he saw that he was healed, turned back, and with a loud voice glorified God,
  16. And fell down on his face at his feet, giving him thanks: and he was a Samaritan.
  17. And Jesus answering said, Were there not ten cleansed? but where are the nine?
  18. There are not found that returned to give glory to God, save this stranger.
  19. And he said unto him, Arise, go thy way: thy faith hath made thee whole.
  20. And when he was demanded of the Pharisees, when the kingdom of God should come, he answered them and said, The kingdom of God cometh not with observation:
  21. Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you.
  22. And he said unto the disciples, The days will come, when ye shall desire to see one of the days of the Son of man, and ye shall not see it.
  23. And they shall say to you, See here; or, see there: go not after them, nor follow them.
  24. For as the lightning, that lighteneth out of the one part under heaven, shineth unto the other part under heaven; so shall also the Son of man be in his day.
  25. But first must he suffer many things, and be rejected of this generation.
  26. And as it was in the days of Noe, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man.
  27. They did eat, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, and the flood came, and destroyed them all.
  28. Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded;
  29. But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all.
  30. Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed.
  31. In that day, he which shall be upon the housetop, and his stuff in the house, let him not come down to take it away: and he that is in the field, let him likewise not return back.
  32. Remember Lot's wife.
  33. Whosoever shall seek to save his life shall lose it; and whosoever shall lose his life shall preserve it.
  34. I tell you, in that night there shall be two men in one bed; the one shall be taken, and the other shall be left.
  35. Two women shall be grinding together; the one shall be taken, and the other left.
  36. Two men shall be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left.
  37. And they answered and said unto him, Where, Lord? And he said unto them, Wheresoever the body is, thither will the eagles be gathered together.

Luke 18

  1. And he spake a parable unto them to this end, that men ought always to pray, and not to faint;
  2. Saying, There was in a city a judge, which feared not God, neither regarded man:
  3. And there was a widow in that city; and she came unto him, saying, Avenge me of mine adversary.
  4. And he would not for a while: but afterward he said within himself, Though I fear not God, nor regard man;
  5. Yet because this widow troubleth me, I will avenge her, lest by her continual coming she weary me.
  6. And the Lord said, Hear what the unjust judge saith.
  7. And shall not God avenge his own elect, which cry day and night unto him, though he bear long with them?
  8. I tell you that he will avenge them speedily. Nevertheless when the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth?
  9. And he spake this parable unto certain which trusted in themselves that they were righteous, and despised others:
  10. Two men went up into the temple to pray; the one a Pharisee, and the other a publican.
  11. The Pharisee stood and prayed thus with himself, God, I thank thee, that I am not as other men are, extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even as this publican.
  12. I fast twice in the week, I give tithes of all that I possess.
  13. And the publican, standing afar off, would not lift up so much as his eyes unto heaven, but smote upon his breast, saying, God be merciful to me a sinner.
  14. I tell you, this man went down to his house justified rather than the other: for every one that exalteth himself shall be abased; and he that humbleth himself shall be exalted.
  15. And they brought unto him also infants, that he would touch them: but when his disciples saw it, they rebuked them.
  16. But Jesus called them unto him, and said, Suffer little children to come unto me, and forbid them not: for of such is the kingdom of God.
  17. Verily I say unto you, Whosoever shall not receive the kingdom of God as a little child shall in no wise enter therein.
  18. And a certain ruler asked him, saying, Good Master, what shall I do to inherit eternal life?
  19. And Jesus said unto him, Why callest thou me good? none is good, save one, that is, God.
  20. Thou knowest the commandments, Do not commit adultery, Do not kill, Do not steal, Do not bear false witness, Honour thy father and thy mother.
  21. And he said, All these have I kept from my youth up.
  22. Now when Jesus heard these things, he said unto him, Yet lackest thou one thing: sell all that thou hast, and distribute unto the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come, follow me.
  23. And when he heard this, he was very sorrowful: for he was very rich.
  24. And when Jesus saw that he was very sorrowful, he said, How hardly shall they that have riches enter into the kingdom of God!
  25. For it is easier for a camel to go through a needle's eye, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God.
  26. And they that heard it said, Who then can be saved?
  27. And he said, The things which are impossible with men are possible with God.
  28. Then Peter said, Lo, we have left all, and followed thee.
  29. And he said unto them, Verily I say unto you, There is no man that hath left house, or parents, or brethren, or wife, or children, for the kingdom of God's sake,
  30. Who shall not receive manifold more in this present time, and in the world to come life everlasting.
  31. Then he took unto him the twelve, and said unto them, Behold, we go up to Jerusalem, and all things that are written by the prophets concerning the Son of man shall be accomplished.
  32. For he shall be delivered unto the Gentiles, and shall be mocked, and spitefully entreated, and spitted on:
  33. And they shall scourge him, and put him to death: and the third day he shall rise again.
  34. And they understood none of these things: and this saying was hid from them, neither knew they the things which were spoken.
  35. And it came to pass, that as he was come nigh unto Jericho, a certain blind man sat by the way side begging:
  36. And hearing the multitude pass by, he asked what it meant.
  37. And they told him, that Jesus of Nazareth passeth by.
  38. And he cried, saying, Jesus, thou Son of David, have mercy on me.
  39. And they which went before rebuked him, that he should hold his peace: but he cried so much the more, Thou Son of David, have mercy on me.
  40. And Jesus stood, and commanded him to be brought unto him: and when he was come near, he asked him,
  41. Saying, What wilt thou that I shall do unto thee? And he said, Lord, that I may receive my sight.
  42. And Jesus said unto him, Receive thy sight: thy faith hath saved thee.
  43. And immediately he received his sight, and followed him, glorifying God: and all the people, when they saw it, gave praise unto God.

Luke 19

  1. And Jesus entered and passed through Jericho.
  2. And, behold, there was a man named Zacchaeus, which was the chief among the publicans, and he was rich.
  3. And he sought to see Jesus who he was; and could not for the press, because he was little of stature.
  4. And he ran before, and climbed up into a sycomore tree to see him: for he was to pass that way.
  5. And when Jesus came to the place, he looked up, and saw him, and said unto him, Zacchaeus, make haste, and come down; for to day I must abide at thy house.
  6. And he made haste, and came down, and received him joyfully.
  7. And when they saw it, they all murmured, saying, That he was gone to be guest with a man that is a sinner.
  8. And Zacchaeus stood, and said unto the Lord; Behold, Lord, the half of my goods I give to the poor; and if I have taken any thing from any man by false accusation, I restore him fourfold.
  9. And Jesus said unto him, This day is salvation come to this house, forsomuch as he also is a son of Abraham.
  10. For the Son of man is come to seek and to save that which was lost.
  11. And as they heard these things, he added and spake a parable, because he was nigh to Jerusalem, and because they thought that the kingdom of God should immediately appear.
  12. He said therefore, A certain nobleman went into a far country to receive for himself a kingdom, and to return.
  13. And he called his ten servants, and delivered them ten pounds, and said unto them, Occupy till I come.
  14. But his citizens hated him, and sent a message after him, saying, We will not have this man to reign over us.
  15. And it came to pass, that when he was returned, having received the kingdom, then he commanded these servants to be called unto him, to whom he had given the money, that he might know how much every man had gained by trading.
  16. Then came the first, saying, Lord, thy pound hath gained ten pounds.
  17. And he said unto him, Well, thou good servant: because thou hast been faithful in a very little, have thou authority over ten cities.
  18. And the second came, saying, Lord, thy pound hath gained five pounds.
  19. And he said likewise to him, Be thou also over five cities.
  20. And another came, saying, Lord, behold, here is thy pound, which I have kept laid up in a napkin:
  21. For I feared thee, because thou art an austere man: thou takest up that thou layedst not down, and reapest that thou didst not sow.
  22. And he saith unto him, Out of thine own mouth will I judge thee, thou wicked servant. Thou knewest that I was an austere man, taking up that I laid not down, and reaping that I did not sow:
  23. Wherefore then gavest not thou my money into the bank, that at my coming I might have required mine own with usury?
  24. And he said unto them that stood by, Take from him the pound, and give it to him that hath ten pounds.
  25. (And they said unto him, Lord, he hath ten pounds.)
  26. For I say unto you, That unto every one which hath shall be given; and from him that hath not, even that he hath shall be taken away from him.
  27. But those mine enemies, which would not that I should reign over them, bring hither, and slay them before me.
  28. And when he had thus spoken, he went before, ascending up to Jerusalem.
  29. And it came to pass, when he was come nigh to Bethphage and Bethany, at the mount called the mount of Olives, he sent two of his disciples,
  30. Saying, Go ye into the village over against you; in the which at your entering ye shall find a colt tied, whereon yet never man sat: loose him, and bring him hither.
  31. And if any man ask you, Why do ye loose him? thus shall ye say unto him, Because the Lord hath need of him.
  32. And they that were sent went their way, and found even as he had said unto them.
  33. And as they were loosing the colt, the owners thereof said unto them, Why loose ye the colt?
  34. And they said, The Lord hath need of him.
  35. And they brought him to Jesus: and they cast their garments upon the colt, and they set Jesus thereon.
  36. And as he went, they spread their clothes in the way.
  37. And when he was come nigh, even now at the descent of the mount of Olives, the whole multitude of the disciples began to rejoice and praise God with a loud voice for all the mighty works that they had seen;
  38. Saying, Blessed be the King that cometh in the name of the Lord: peace in heaven, and glory in the highest.
  39. And some of the Pharisees from among the multitude said unto him, Master, rebuke thy disciples.
  40. And he answered and said unto them, I tell you that, if these should hold their peace, the stones would immediately cry out.
  41. And when he was come near, he beheld the city, and wept over it,
  42. Saying, If thou hadst known, even thou, at least in this thy day, the things which belong unto thy peace! but now they are hid from thine eyes.
  43. For the days shall come upon thee, that thine enemies shall cast a trench about thee, and compass thee round, and keep thee in on every side,
  44. And shall lay thee even with the ground, and thy children within thee; and they shall not leave in thee one stone upon another; because thou knewest not the time of thy visitation.
  45. And he went into the temple, and began to cast out them that sold therein, and them that bought;
  46. Saying unto them, It is written, My house is the house of prayer: but ye have made it a den of thieves.
  47. And he taught daily in the temple. But the chief priests and the scribes and the chief of the people sought to destroy him,
  48. And could not find what they might do: for all the people were very attentive to hear him.

Luke 20

  1. And it came to pass, that on one of those days, as he taught the people in the temple, and preached the gospel, the chief priests and the scribes came upon him with the elders,
  2. And spake unto him, saying, Tell us, by what authority doest thou these things? or who is he that gave thee this authority?
  3. And he answered and said unto them, I will also ask you one thing; and answer me:
  4. The baptism of John, was it from heaven, or of men?
  5. And they reasoned with themselves, saying, If we shall say, From heaven; he will say, Why then believed ye him not?
  6. But and if we say, Of men; all the people will stone us: for they be persuaded that John was a prophet.
  7. And they answered, that they could not tell whence it was.
  8. And Jesus said unto them, Neither tell I you by what authority I do these things.
  9. Then began he to speak to the people this parable; A certain man planted a vineyard, and let it forth to husbandmen, and went into a far country for a long time.
  10. And at the season he sent a servant to the husbandmen, that they should give him of the fruit of the vineyard: but the husbandmen beat him, and sent him away empty.
  11. And again he sent another servant: and they beat him also, and entreated him shamefully, and sent him away empty.
  12. And again he sent a third: and they wounded him also, and cast him out.
  13. Then said the lord of the vineyard, What shall I do? I will send my beloved son: it may be they will reverence him when they see him.
  14. But when the husbandmen saw him, they reasoned among themselves, saying, This is the heir: come, let us kill him, that the inheritance may be ours.
  15. So they cast him out of the vineyard, and killed him. What therefore shall the lord of the vineyard do unto them?
  16. He shall come and destroy these husbandmen, and shall give the vineyard to others. And when they heard it, they said, God forbid.
  17. And he beheld them, and said, What is this then that is written, The stone which the builders rejected, the same is become the head of the corner?
  18. Whosoever shall fall upon that stone shall be broken; but on whomsoever it shall fall, it will grind him to powder.
  19. And the chief priests and the scribes the same hour sought to lay hands on him; and they feared the people: for they perceived that he had spoken this parable against them.
  20. And they watched him, and sent forth spies, which should feign themselves just men, that they might take hold of his words, that so they might deliver him unto the power and authority of the governor.
  21. And they asked him, saying, Master, we know that thou sayest and teachest rightly, neither acceptest thou the person of any, but teachest the way of God truly:
  22. Is it lawful for us to give tribute unto Caesar, or no?
  23. But he perceived their craftiness, and said unto them, Why tempt ye me?
  24. Shew me a penny. Whose image and superscription hath it? They answered and said, Caesar's.
  25. And he said unto them, Render therefore unto Caesar the things which be Caesar's, and unto God the things which be God's.
  26. And they could not take hold of his words before the people: and they marvelled at his answer, and held their peace.
  27. Then came to him certain of the Sadducees, which deny that there is any resurrection; and they asked him,
  28. Saying, Master, Moses wrote unto us, If any man's brother die, having a wife, and he die without children, that his brother should take his wife, and raise up seed unto his brother.
  29. There were therefore seven brethren: and the first took a wife, and died without children.
  30. And the second took her to wife, and he died childless.
  31. And the third took her; and in like manner the seven also: and they left no children, and died.
  32. Last of all the woman died also.
  33. Therefore in the resurrection whose wife of them is she? for seven had her to wife.
  34. And Jesus answering said unto them, The children of this world marry, and are given in marriage:
  35. But they which shall be accounted worthy to obtain that world, and the resurrection from the dead, neither marry, nor are given in marriage:
  36. Neither can they die any more: for they are equal unto the angels; and are the children of God, being the children of the resurrection.
  37. Now that the dead are raised, even Moses shewed at the bush, when he calleth the Lord the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob.
  38. For he is not a God of the dead, but of the living: for all live unto him.
  39. Then certain of the scribes answering said, Master, thou hast well said.
  40. And after that they durst not ask him any question at all.
  41. And he said unto them, How say they that Christ is David's son?
  42. And David himself saith in the book of Psalms, The LORD said unto my Lord, Sit thou on my right hand,
  43. Till I make thine enemies thy footstool.
  44. David therefore calleth him Lord, how is he then his son?
  45. Then in the audience of all the people he said unto his disciples,
  46. Beware of the scribes, which desire to walk in long robes, and love greetings in the markets, and the highest seats in the synagogues, and the chief rooms at feasts;
  47. Which devour widows' houses, and for a shew make long prayers: the same shall receive greater damnation.

Luke 21

  1. And he looked up, and saw the rich men casting their gifts into the treasury.
  2. And he saw also a certain poor widow casting in thither two mites.
  3. And he said, Of a truth I say unto you, that this poor widow hath cast in more than they all:
  4. For all these have of their abundance cast in unto the offerings of God: but she of her penury hath cast in all the living that she had.
  5. And as some spake of the temple, how it was adorned with goodly stones and gifts, he said,
  6. As for these things which ye behold, the days will come, in the which there shall not be left one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down.
  7. And they asked him, saying, Master, but when shall these things be? and what sign will there be when these things shall come to pass?
  8. And he said, Take heed that ye be not deceived: for many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and the time draweth near: go ye not therefore after them.
  9. But when ye shall hear of wars and commotions, be not terrified: for these things must first come to pass; but the end is not by and by.
  10. Then said he unto them, Nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom:
  11. And great earthquakes shall be in divers places, and famines, and pestilences; and fearful sights and great signs shall there be from heaven.
  12. But before all these, they shall lay their hands on you, and persecute you, delivering you up to the synagogues, and into prisons, being brought before kings and rulers for my name's sake.
  13. And it shall turn to you for a testimony.
  14. Settle it therefore in your hearts, not to meditate before what ye shall answer:
  15. For I will give you a mouth and wisdom, which all your adversaries shall not be able to gainsay nor resist.
  16. And ye shall be betrayed both by parents, and brethren, and kinsfolks, and friends; and some of you shall they cause to be put to death.
  17. And ye shall be hated of all men for my name's sake.
  18. But there shall not an hair of your head perish.
  19. In your patience possess ye your souls.
  20. And when ye shall see Jerusalem compassed with armies, then know that the desolation thereof is nigh.
  21. Then let them which are in Judaea flee to the mountains; and let them which are in the midst of it depart out; and let not them that are in the countries enter thereinto.
  22. For these be the days of vengeance, that all things which are written may be fulfilled.
  23. But woe unto them that are with child, and to them that give suck, in those days! for there shall be great distress in the land, and wrath upon this people.
  24. And they shall fall by the edge of the sword, and shall be led away captive into all nations: and Jerusalem shall be trodden down of the Gentiles, until the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled.
  25. And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring;
  26. Men's hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken.
  27. And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory.
  28. And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.
  29. And he spake to them a parable; Behold the fig tree, and all the trees;
  30. When they now shoot forth, ye see and know of your own selves that summer is now nigh at hand.
  31. So likewise ye, when ye see these things come to pass, know ye that the kingdom of God is nigh at hand.
  32. Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass away, till all be fulfilled.
  33. Heaven and earth shall pass away: but my words shall not pass away.
  34. And take heed to yourselves, lest at any time your hearts be overcharged with surfeiting, and drunkenness, and cares of this life, and so that day come upon you unawares.
  35. For as a snare shall it come on all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth.
  36. Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.
  37. And in the day time he was teaching in the temple; and at night he went out, and abode in the mount that is called the mount of Olives.
  38. And all the people came early in the morning to him in the temple, for to hear him.

Luke 22

  1. Now the feast of unleavened bread drew nigh, which is called the Passover.
  2. And the chief priests and scribes sought how they might kill him; for they feared the people.
  3. Then entered Satan into Judas surnamed Iscariot, being of the number of the twelve.
  4. And he went his way, and communed with the chief priests and captains, how he might betray him unto them.
  5. And they were glad, and covenanted to give him money.
  6. And he promised, and sought opportunity to betray him unto them in the absence of the multitude.
  7. Then came the day of unleavened bread, when the passover must be killed.
  8. And he sent Peter and John, saying, Go and prepare us the passover, that we may eat.
  9. And they said unto him, Where wilt thou that we prepare?
  10. And he said unto them, Behold, when ye are entered into the city, there shall a man meet you, bearing a pitcher of water; follow him into the house where he entereth in.
  11. And ye shall say unto the goodman of the house, The Master saith unto thee, Where is the guestchamber, where I shall eat the passover with my disciples?
  12. And he shall shew you a large upper room furnished: there make ready.
  13. And they went, and found as he had said unto them: and they made ready the passover.
  14. And when the hour was come, he sat down, and the twelve apostles with him.
  15. And he said unto them, With desire I have desired to eat this passover with you before I suffer:
  16. For I say unto you, I will not any more eat thereof, until it be fulfilled in the kingdom of God.
  17. And he took the cup, and gave thanks, and said, Take this, and divide it among yourselves:
  18. For I say unto you, I will not drink of the fruit of the vine, until the kingdom of God shall come.
  19. And he took bread, and gave thanks, and brake it, and gave unto them, saying, This is my body which is given for you: this do in remembrance of me.
  20. Likewise also the cup after supper, saying, This cup is the new testament in my blood, which is shed for you.
  21. But, behold, the hand of him that betrayeth me is with me on the table.
  22. And truly the Son of man goeth, as it was determined: but woe unto that man by whom he is betrayed!
  23. And they began to enquire among themselves, which of them it was that should do this thing.
  24. And there was also a strife among them, which of them should be accounted the greatest.
  25. And he said unto them, The kings of the Gentiles exercise lordship over them; and they that exercise authority upon them are called benefactors.
  26. But ye shall not be so: but he that is greatest among you, let him be as the younger; and he that is chief, as he that doth serve.
  27. For whether is greater, he that sitteth at meat, or he that serveth? is not he that sitteth at meat? but I am among you as he that serveth.
  28. Ye are they which have continued with me in my temptations.
  29. And I appoint unto you a kingdom, as my Father hath appointed unto me;
  30. That ye may eat and drink at my table in my kingdom, and sit on thrones judging the twelve tribes of Israel.
  31. And the Lord said, Simon, Simon, behold, Satan hath desired to have you, that he may sift you as wheat:
  32. But I have prayed for thee, that thy faith fail not: and when thou art converted, strengthen thy brethren.
  33. And he said unto him, Lord, I am ready to go with thee, both into prison, and to death.
  34. And he said, I tell thee, Peter, the cock shall not crow this day, before that thou shalt thrice deny that thou knowest me.
  35. And he said unto them, When I sent you without purse, and scrip, and shoes, lacked ye any thing? And they said, Nothing.
  36. Then said he unto them, But now, he that hath a purse, let him take it, and likewise his scrip: and he that hath no sword, let him sell his garment, and buy one.
  37. For I say unto you, that this that is written must yet be accomplished in me, And he was reckoned among the transgressors: for the things concerning me have an end.
  38. And they said, Lord, behold, here are two swords. And he said unto them, It is enough.
  39. And he came out, and went, as he was wont, to the mount of Olives; and his disciples also followed him.
  40. And when he was at the place, he said unto them, Pray that ye enter not into temptation.
  41. And he was withdrawn from them about a stone's cast, and kneeled down, and prayed,
  42. Saying, Father, if thou be willing, remove this cup from me: nevertheless not my will, but thine, be done.
  43. And there appeared an angel unto him from heaven, strengthening him.
  44. And being in an agony he prayed more earnestly: and his sweat was as it were great drops of blood falling down to the ground.
  45. And when he rose up from prayer, and was come to his disciples, he found them sleeping for sorrow,
  46. And said unto them, Why sleep ye? rise and pray, lest ye enter into temptation.
  47. And while he yet spake, behold a multitude, and he that was called Judas, one of the twelve, went before them, and drew near unto Jesus to kiss him.
  48. But Jesus said unto him, Judas, betrayest thou the Son of man with a kiss?
  49. When they which were about him saw what would follow, they said unto him, Lord, shall we smite with the sword?
  50. And one of them smote the servant of the high priest, and cut off his right ear.
  51. And Jesus answered and said, Suffer ye thus far. And he touched his ear, and healed him.
  52. Then Jesus said unto the chief priests, and captains of the temple, and the elders, which were come to him, Be ye come out, as against a thief, with swords and staves?
  53. When I was daily with you in the temple, ye stretched forth no hands against me: but this is your hour, and the power of darkness.
  54. Then took they him, and led him, and brought him into the high priest's house. And Peter followed afar off.
  55. And when they had kindled a fire in the midst of the hall, and were set down together, Peter sat down among them.
  56. But a certain maid beheld him as he sat by the fire, and earnestly looked upon him, and said, This man was also with him.
  57. And he denied him, saying, Woman, I know him not.
  58. And after a little while another saw him, and said, Thou art also of them. And Peter said, Man, I am not.
  59. And about the space of one hour after another confidently affirmed, saying, Of a truth this fellow also was with him: for he is a Galilaean.
  60. And Peter said, Man, I know not what thou sayest. And immediately, while he yet spake, the cock crew.
  61. And the Lord turned, and looked upon Peter. And Peter remembered the word of the Lord, how he had said unto him, Before the cock crow, thou shalt deny me thrice.
  62. And Peter went out, and wept bitterly.
  63. And the men that held Jesus mocked him, and smote him.
  64. And when they had blindfolded him, they struck him on the face, and asked him, saying, Prophesy, who is it that smote thee?
  65. And many other things blasphemously spake they against him.
  66. And as soon as it was day, the elders of the people and the chief priests and the scribes came together, and led him into their council, saying,
  67. Art thou the Christ? tell us. And he said unto them, If I tell you, ye will not believe:
  68. And if I also ask you, ye will not answer me, nor let me go.
  69. Hereafter shall the Son of man sit on the right hand of the power of God.
  70. Then said they all, Art thou then the Son of God? And he said unto them, Ye say that I am.
  71. And they said, What need we any further witness? for we ourselves have heard of his own mouth.

Luke 23

  1. And the whole multitude of them arose, and led him unto Pilate.
  2. And they began to accuse him, saying, We found this fellow perverting the nation, and forbidding to give tribute to Caesar, saying that he himself is Christ a King.
  3. And Pilate asked him, saying, Art thou the King of the Jews? And he answered him and said, Thou sayest it.
  4. Then said Pilate to the chief priests and to the people, I find no fault in this man.
  5. And they were the more fierce, saying, He stirreth up the people, teaching throughout all Jewry, beginning from Galilee to this place.
  6. When Pilate heard of Galilee, he asked whether the man were a Galilaean.
  7. And as soon as he knew that he belonged unto Herod's jurisdiction, he sent him to Herod, who himself also was at Jerusalem at that time.
  8. And when Herod saw Jesus, he was exceeding glad: for he was desirous to see him of a long season, because he had heard many things of him; and he hoped to have seen some miracle done by him.
  9. Then he questioned with him in many words; but he answered him nothing.
  10. And the chief priests and scribes stood and vehemently accused him.
  11. And Herod with his men of war set him at nought, and mocked him, and arrayed him in a gorgeous robe, and sent him again to Pilate.
  12. And the same day Pilate and Herod were made friends together: for before they were at enmity between themselves.
  13. And Pilate, when he had called together the chief priests and the rulers and the people,
  14. Said unto them, Ye have brought this man unto me, as one that perverteth the people: and, behold, I, having examined him before you, have found no fault in this man touching those things whereof ye accuse him:
  15. No, nor yet Herod: for I sent you to him; and, lo, nothing worthy of death is done unto him.
  16. I will therefore chastise him, and release him.
  17. (For of necessity he must release one unto them at the feast.)
  18. And they cried out all at once, saying, Away with this man, and release unto us Barabbas:
  19. (Who for a certain sedition made in the city, and for murder, was cast into prison.)
  20. Pilate therefore, willing to release Jesus, spake again to them.
  21. But they cried, saying, Crucify him, crucify him.
  22. And he said unto them the third time, Why, what evil hath he done? I have found no cause of death in him: I will therefore chastise him, and let him go.
  23. And they were instant with loud voices, requiring that he might be crucified. And the voices of them and of the chief priests prevailed.
  24. And Pilate gave sentence that it should be as they required.
  25. And he released unto them him that for sedition and murder was cast into prison, whom they had desired; but he delivered Jesus to their will.
  26. And as they led him away, they laid hold upon one Simon, a Cyrenian, coming out of the country, and on him they laid the cross, that he might bear it after Jesus.
  27. And there followed him a great company of people, and of women, which also bewailed and lamented him.
  28. But Jesus turning unto them said, Daughters of Jerusalem, weep not for me, but weep for yourselves, and for your children.
  29. For, behold, the days are coming, in the which they shall say, Blessed are the barren, and the wombs that never bare, and the paps which never gave suck.
  30. Then shall they begin to say to the mountains, Fall on us; and to the hills, Cover us.
  31. For if they do these things in a green tree, what shall be done in the dry?
  32. And there were also two other, malefactors, led with him to be put to death.
  33. And when they were come to the place, which is called Calvary, there they crucified him, and the malefactors, one on the right hand, and the other on the left.
  34. Then said Jesus, Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do. And they parted his raiment, and cast lots.
  35. And the people stood beholding. And the rulers also with them derided him, saying, He saved others; let him save himself, if he be Christ, the chosen of God.
  36. And the soldiers also mocked him, coming to him, and offering him vinegar,
  37. And saying, If thou be the king of the Jews, save thyself.
  38. And a superscription also was written over him in letters of Greek, and Latin, and Hebrew, THIS IS THE KING OF THE JEWS.
  39. And one of the malefactors which were hanged railed on him, saying, If thou be Christ, save thyself and us.
  40. But the other answering rebuked him, saying, Dost not thou fear God, seeing thou art in the same condemnation?
  41. And we indeed justly; for we receive the due reward of our deeds: but this man hath done nothing amiss.
  42. And he said unto Jesus, Lord, remember me when thou comest into thy kingdom.
  43. And Jesus said unto him, Verily I say unto thee, To day shalt thou be with me in paradise.
  44. And it was about the sixth hour, and there was a darkness over all the earth until the ninth hour.
  45. And the sun was darkened, and the veil of the temple was rent in the midst.
  46. And when Jesus had cried with a loud voice, he said, Father, into thy hands I commend my spirit: and having said thus, he gave up the ghost.
  47. Now when the centurion saw what was done, he glorified God, saying, Certainly this was a righteous man.
  48. And all the people that came together to that sight, beholding the things which were done, smote their breasts, and returned.
  49. And all his acquaintance, and the women that followed him from Galilee, stood afar off, beholding these things.
  50. And, behold, there was a man named Joseph, a counsellor; and he was a good man, and a just:
  51. (The same had not consented to the counsel and deed of them;) he was of Arimathaea, a city of the Jews: who also himself waited for the kingdom of God.
  52. This man went unto Pilate, and begged the body of Jesus.
  53. And he took it down, and wrapped it in linen, and laid it in a sepulchre that was hewn in stone, wherein never man before was laid.
  54. And that day was the preparation, and the sabbath drew on.
  55. And the women also, which came with him from Galilee, followed after, and beheld the sepulchre, and how his body was laid.
  56. And they returned, and prepared spices and ointments; and rested the sabbath day according to the commandment.

Luke 24

  1. Now upon the first day of the week, very early in the morning, they came unto the sepulchre, bringing the spices which they had prepared, and certain others with them.
  2. And they found the stone rolled away from the sepulchre.
  3. And they entered in, and found not the body of the Lord Jesus.
  4. And it came to pass, as they were much perplexed thereabout, behold, two men stood by them in shining garments:
  5. And as they were afraid, and bowed down their faces to the earth, they said unto them, Why seek ye the living among the dead?
  6. He is not here, but is risen: remember how he spake unto you when he was yet in Galilee,
  7. Saying, The Son of man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men, and be crucified, and the third day rise again.
  8. And they remembered his words,
  9. And returned from the sepulchre, and told all these things unto the eleven, and to all the rest.
  10. It was Mary Magdalene, and Joanna, and Mary the mother of James, and other women that were with them, which told these things unto the apostles.
  11. And their words seemed to them as idle tales, and they believed them not.
  12. Then arose Peter, and ran unto the sepulchre; and stooping down, he beheld the linen clothes laid by themselves, and departed, wondering in himself at that which was come to pass.
  13. And, behold, two of them went that same day to a village called Emmaus, which was from Jerusalem about threescore furlongs.
  14. And they talked together of all these things which had happened.
  15. And it came to pass, that, while they communed together and reasoned, Jesus himself drew near, and went with them.
  16. But their eyes were holden that they should not know him.
  17. And he said unto them, What manner of communications are these that ye have one to another, as ye walk, and are sad?
  18. And the one of them, whose name was Cleopas, answering said unto him, Art thou only a stranger in Jerusalem, and hast not known the things which are come to pass there in these days?
  19. And he said unto them, What things? And they said unto him, Concerning Jesus of Nazareth, which was a prophet mighty in deed and word before God and all the people:
  20. And how the chief priests and our rulers delivered him to be condemned to death, and have crucified him.
  21. But we trusted that it had been he which should have redeemed Israel: and beside all this, to day is the third day since these things were done.
  22. Yea, and certain women also of our company made us astonished, which were early at the sepulchre;
  23. And when they found not his body, they came, saying, that they had also seen a vision of angels, which said that he was alive.
  24. And certain of them which were with us went to the sepulchre, and found it even so as the women had said: but him they saw not.
  25. Then he said unto them, O fools, and slow of heart to believe all that the prophets have spoken:
  26. Ought not Christ to have suffered these things, and to enter into his glory?
  27. And beginning at Moses and all the prophets, he expounded unto them in all the scriptures the things concerning himself.
  28. And they drew nigh unto the village, whither they went: and he made as though he would have gone further.
  29. But they constrained him, saying, Abide with us: for it is toward evening, and the day is far spent. And he went in to tarry with them.
  30. And it came to pass, as he sat at meat with them, he took bread, and blessed it, and brake, and gave to them.
  31. And their eyes were opened, and they knew him; and he vanished out of their sight.
  32. And they said one to another, Did not our heart burn within us, while he talked with us by the way, and while he opened to us the scriptures?
  33. And they rose up the same hour, and returned to Jerusalem, and found the eleven gathered together, and them that were with them,
  34. Saying, The Lord is risen indeed, and hath appeared to Simon.
  35. And they told what things were done in the way, and how he was known of them in breaking of bread.
  36. And as they thus spake, Jesus himself stood in the midst of them, and saith unto them, Peace be unto you.
  37. But they were terrified and affrighted, and supposed that they had seen a spirit.
  38. And he said unto them, Why are ye troubled? and why do thoughts arise in your hearts?
  39. Behold my hands and my feet, that it is I myself: handle me, and see; for a spirit hath not flesh and bones, as ye see me have.
  40. And when he had thus spoken, he shewed them his hands and his feet.
  41. And while they yet believed not for joy, and wondered, he said unto them, Have ye here any meat?
  42. And they gave him a piece of a broiled fish, and of an honeycomb.
  43. And he took it, and did eat before them.
  44. And he said unto them, These are the words which I spake unto you, while I was yet with you, that all things must be fulfilled, which were written in the law of Moses, and in the prophets, and in the psalms, concerning me.
  45. Then opened he their understanding, that they might understand the scriptures,
  46. And said unto them, Thus it is written, and thus it behoved Christ to suffer, and to rise from the dead the third day:
  47. And that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in his name among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem.
  48. And ye are witnesses of these things.
  49. And, behold, I send the promise of my Father upon you: but tarry ye in the city of Jerusalem, until ye be endued with power from on high.
  50. And he led them out as far as to Bethany, and he lifted up his hands, and blessed them.
  51. And it came to pass, while he blessed them, he was parted from them, and carried up into heaven.
  52. And they worshipped him, and returned to Jerusalem with great joy:
  53. And were continually in the temple, praising and blessing God. Amen.

John 1 | John 4 | John 7

John 1

  1. In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
  2. The same was in the beginning with God.
  3. All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.
  4. In him was life; and the life was the light of men.
  5. And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.
  6. There was a man sent from God, whose name was John.
  7. The same came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all men through him might believe.
  8. He was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that Light.
  9. That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world.
  10. He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not.
  11. He came unto his own, and his own received him not.
  12. But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:
  13. Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.
  14. And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.
  15. John bare witness of him, and cried, saying, This was he of whom I spake, He that cometh after me is preferred before me: for he was before me.
  16. And of his fulness have all we received, and grace for grace.
  17. For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ.
  18. No man hath seen God at any time; the only begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared him.
  19. And this is the record of John, when the Jews sent priests and Levites from Jerusalem to ask him, Who art thou?
  20. And he confessed, and denied not; but confessed, I am not the Christ.
  21. And they asked him, What then? Art thou Elias? And he saith, I am not. Art thou that prophet? And he answered, No.
  22. Then said they unto him, Who art thou? that we may give an answer to them that sent us. What sayest thou of thyself?
  23. He said, I am the voice of one crying in the wilderness, Make straight the way of the Lord, as said the prophet Esaias.
  24. And they which were sent were of the Pharisees.
  25. And they asked him, and said unto him, Why baptizest thou then, if thou be not that Christ, nor Elias, neither that prophet?
  26. John answered them, saying, I baptize with water: but there standeth one among you, whom ye know not;
  27. He it is, who coming after me is preferred before me, whose shoe's latchet I am not worthy to unloose.
  28. These things were done in Bethabara beyond Jordan, where John was baptizing.
  29. The next day John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith, Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world.
  30. This is he of whom I said, After me cometh a man which is preferred before me: for he was before me.
  31. And I knew him not: but that he should be made manifest to Israel, therefore am I come baptizing with water.
  32. And John bare record, saying, I saw the Spirit descending from heaven like a dove, and it abode upon him.
  33. And I knew him not: but he that sent me to baptize with water, the same said unto me, Upon whom thou shalt see the Spirit descending, and remaining on him, the same is he which baptizeth with the Holy Ghost.
  34. And I saw, and bare record that this is the Son of God.
  35. Again the next day after John stood, and two of his disciples;
  36. And looking upon Jesus as he walked, he saith, Behold the Lamb of God!
  37. And the two disciples heard him speak, and they followed Jesus.
  38. Then Jesus turned, and saw them following, and saith unto them, What seek ye? They said unto him, Rabbi, (which is to say, being interpreted, Master,) where dwellest thou?
  39. He saith unto them, Come and see. They came and saw where he dwelt, and abode with him that day: for it was about the tenth hour.
  40. One of the two which heard John speak, and followed him, was Andrew, Simon Peter's brother.
  41. He first findeth his own brother Simon, and saith unto him, We have found the Messias, which is, being interpreted, the Christ.
  42. And he brought him to Jesus. And when Jesus beheld him, he said, Thou art Simon the son of Jona: thou shalt be called Cephas, which is by interpretation, A stone.
  43. The day following Jesus would go forth into Galilee, and findeth Philip, and saith unto him, Follow me.
  44. Now Philip was of Bethsaida, the city of Andrew and Peter.
  45. Philip findeth Nathanael, and saith unto him, We have found him, of whom Moses in the law, and the prophets, did write, Jesus of Nazareth, the son of Joseph.
  46. And Nathanael said unto him, Can there any good thing come out of Nazareth? Philip saith unto him, Come and see.
  47. Jesus saw Nathanael coming to him, and saith of him, Behold an Israelite indeed, in whom is no guile!
  48. Nathanael saith unto him, Whence knowest thou me? Jesus answered and said unto him, Before that Philip called thee, when thou wast under the fig tree, I saw thee.
  49. Nathanael answered and saith unto him, Rabbi, thou art the Son of God; thou art the King of Israel.
  50. Jesus answered and said unto him, Because I said unto thee, I saw thee under the fig tree, believest thou? thou shalt see greater things than these.
  51. And he saith unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Hereafter ye shall see heaven open, and the angels of God ascending and descending upon the Son of man.

John 2

  1. And the third day there was a marriage in Cana of Galilee; and the mother of Jesus was there:
  2. And both Jesus was called, and his disciples, to the marriage.
  3. And when they wanted wine, the mother of Jesus saith unto him, They have no wine.
  4. Jesus saith unto her, Woman, what have I to do with thee? mine hour is not yet come.
  5. His mother saith unto the servants, Whatsoever he saith unto you, do it.
  6. And there were set there six waterpots of stone, after the manner of the purifying of the Jews, containing two or three firkins apiece.
  7. Jesus saith unto them, Fill the waterpots with water. And they filled them up to the brim.
  8. And he saith unto them, Draw out now, and bear unto the governor of the feast. And they bare it.
  9. When the ruler of the feast had tasted the water that was made wine, and knew not whence it was: (but the servants which drew the water knew;) the governor of the feast called the bridegroom,
  10. And saith unto him, Every man at the beginning doth set forth good wine; and when men have well drunk, then that which is worse: but thou hast kept the good wine until now.
  11. This beginning of miracles did Jesus in Cana of Galilee, and manifested forth his glory; and his disciples believed on him.
  12. After this he went down to Capernaum, he, and his mother, and his brethren, and his disciples: and they continued there not many days.
  13. And the Jews' passover was at hand, and Jesus went up to Jerusalem,
  14. And found in the temple those that sold oxen and sheep and doves, and the changers of money sitting:
  15. And when he had made a scourge of small cords, he drove them all out of the temple, and the sheep, and the oxen; and poured out the changers' money, and overthrew the tables;
  16. And said unto them that sold doves, Take these things hence; make not my Father's house an house of merchandise.
  17. And his disciples remembered that it was written, The zeal of thine house hath eaten me up.
  18. Then answered the Jews and said unto him, What sign shewest thou unto us, seeing that thou doest these things?
  19. Jesus answered and said unto them, Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up.
  20. Then said the Jews, Forty and six years was this temple in building, and wilt thou rear it up in three days?
  21. But he spake of the temple of his body.
  22. When therefore he was risen from the dead, his disciples remembered that he had said this unto them; and they believed the scripture, and the word which Jesus had said.
  23. Now when he was in Jerusalem at the passover, in the feast day, many believed in his name, when they saw the miracles which he did.
  24. But Jesus did not commit himself unto them, because he knew all men,
  25. And needed not that any should testify of man: for he knew what was in man.

John 3

  1. There was a man of the Pharisees, named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews:
  2. The same came to Jesus by night, and said unto him, Rabbi, we know that thou art a teacher come from God: for no man can do these miracles that thou doest, except God be with him.
  3. Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.
  4. Nicodemus saith unto him, How can a man be born when he is old? can he enter the second time into his mother's womb, and be born?
  5. Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.
  6. That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.
  7. Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again.
  8. The wind bloweth where it listeth, and thou hearest the sound thereof, but canst not tell whence it cometh, and whither it goeth: so is every one that is born of the Spirit.
  9. Nicodemus answered and said unto him, How can these things be?
  10. Jesus answered and said unto him, Art thou a master of Israel, and knowest not these things?
  11. Verily, verily, I say unto thee, We speak that we do know, and testify that we have seen; and ye receive not our witness.
  12. If I have told you earthly things, and ye believe not, how shall ye believe, if I tell you of heavenly things?
  13. And no man hath ascended up to heaven, but he that came down from heaven, even the Son of man which is in heaven.
  14. And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up:
  15. That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life.
  16. For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
  17. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.
  18. He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.
  19. And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.
  20. For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved.
  21. But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God.
  22. After these things came Jesus and his disciples into the land of Judaea; and there he tarried with them, and baptized.
  23. And John also was baptizing in Aenon near to Salim, because there was much water there: and they came, and were baptized.
  24. For John was not yet cast into prison.
  25. Then there arose a question between some of John's disciples and the Jews about purifying.
  26. And they came unto John, and said unto him, Rabbi, he that was with thee beyond Jordan, to whom thou barest witness, behold, the same baptizeth, and all men come to him.
  27. John answered and said, A man can receive nothing, except it be given him from heaven.
  28. Ye yourselves bear me witness, that I said, I am not the Christ, but that I am sent before him.
  29. He that hath the bride is the bridegroom: but the friend of the bridegroom, which standeth and heareth him, rejoiceth greatly because of the bridegroom's voice: this my joy therefore is fulfilled.
  30. He must increase, but I must decrease.
  31. He that cometh from above is above all: he that is of the earth is earthly, and speaketh of the earth: he that cometh from heaven is above all.
  32. And what he hath seen and heard, that he testifieth; and no man receiveth his testimony.
  33. He that hath received his testimony hath set to his seal that God is true.
  34. For he whom God hath sent speaketh the words of God: for God giveth not the Spirit by measure unto him.
  35. The Father loveth the Son, and hath given all things into his hand.
  36. He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him.

John 4

  1. When therefore the Lord knew how the Pharisees had heard that Jesus made and baptized more disciples than John,
  2. (Though Jesus himself baptized not, but his disciples,)
  3. He left Judaea, and departed again into Galilee.
  4. And he must needs go through Samaria.
  5. Then cometh he to a city of Samaria, which is called Sychar, near to the parcel of ground that Jacob gave to his son Joseph.
  6. Now Jacob's well was there. Jesus therefore, being wearied with his journey, sat thus on the well: and it was about the sixth hour.
  7. There cometh a woman of Samaria to draw water: Jesus saith unto her, Give me to drink.
  8. (For his disciples were gone away unto the city to buy meat.)
  9. Then saith the woman of Samaria unto him, How is it that thou, being a Jew, askest drink of me, which am a woman of Samaria? for the Jews have no dealings with the Samaritans.
  10. Jesus answered and said unto her, If thou knewest the gift of God, and who it is that saith to thee, Give me to drink; thou wouldest have asked of him, and he would have given thee living water.
  11. The woman saith unto him, Sir, thou hast nothing to draw with, and the well is deep: from whence then hast thou that living water?
  12. Art thou greater than our father Jacob, which gave us the well, and drank thereof himself, and his children, and his cattle?
  13. Jesus answered and said unto her, Whosoever drinketh of this water shall thirst again:
  14. But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life.
  15. The woman saith unto him, Sir, give me this water, that I thirst not, neither come hither to draw.
  16. Jesus saith unto her, Go, call thy husband, and come hither.
  17. The woman answered and said, I have no husband. Jesus said unto her, Thou hast well said, I have no husband:
  18. For thou hast had five husbands; and he whom thou now hast is not thy husband: in that saidst thou truly.
  19. The woman saith unto him, Sir, I perceive that thou art a prophet.
  20. Our fathers worshipped in this mountain; and ye say, that in Jerusalem is the place where men ought to worship.
  21. Jesus saith unto her, Woman, believe me, the hour cometh, when ye shall neither in this mountain, nor yet at Jerusalem, worship the Father.
  22. Ye worship ye know not what: we know what we worship: for salvation is of the Jews.
  23. But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him.
  24. God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.
  25. The woman saith unto him, I know that Messias cometh, which is called Christ: when he is come, he will tell us all things.
  26. Jesus saith unto her, I that speak unto thee am he.
  27. And upon this came his disciples, and marvelled that he talked with the woman: yet no man said, What seekest thou? or, Why talkest thou with her?
  28. The woman then left her waterpot, and went her way into the city, and saith to the men,
  29. Come, see a man, which told me all things that ever I did: is not this the Christ?
  30. Then they went out of the city, and came unto him.
  31. In the mean while his disciples prayed him, saying, Master, eat.
  32. But he said unto them, I have meat to eat that ye know not of.
  33. Therefore said the disciples one to another, Hath any man brought him ought to eat?
  34. Jesus saith unto them, My meat is to do the will of him that sent me, and to finish his work.
  35. Say not ye, There are yet four months, and then cometh harvest? behold, I say unto you, Lift up your eyes, and look on the fields; for they are white already to harvest.
  36. And he that reapeth receiveth wages, and gathereth fruit unto life eternal: that both he that soweth and he that reapeth may rejoice together.
  37. And herein is that saying true, One soweth, and another reapeth.
  38. I sent you to reap that whereon ye bestowed no labour: other men laboured, and ye are entered into their labours.
  39. And many of the Samaritans of that city believed on him for the saying of the woman, which testified, He told me all that ever I did.
  40. So when the Samaritans were come unto him, they besought him that he would tarry with them: and he abode there two days.
  41. And many more believed because of his own word;
  42. And said unto the woman, Now we believe, not because of thy saying: for we have heard him ourselves, and know that this is indeed the Christ, the Saviour of the world.
  43. Now after two days he departed thence, and went into Galilee.
  44. For Jesus himself testified, that a prophet hath no honour in his own country.
  45. Then when he was come into Galilee, the Galilaeans received him, having seen all the things that he did at Jerusalem at the feast: for they also went unto the feast.
  46. So Jesus came again into Cana of Galilee, where he made the water wine. And there was a certain nobleman, whose son was sick at Capernaum.
  47. When he heard that Jesus was come out of Judaea into Galilee, he went unto him, and besought him that he would come down, and heal his son: for he was at the point of death.
  48. Then said Jesus unto him, Except ye see signs and wonders, ye will not believe.
  49. The nobleman saith unto him, Sir, come down ere my child die.
  50. Jesus saith unto him, Go thy way; thy son liveth. And the man believed the word that Jesus had spoken unto him, and he went his way.
  51. And as he was now going down, his servants met him, and told him, saying, Thy son liveth.
  52. Then enquired he of them the hour when he began to amend. And they said unto him, Yesterday at the seventh hour the fever left him.
  53. So the father knew that it was at the same hour, in the which Jesus said unto him, Thy son liveth: and himself believed, and his whole house.
  54. This is again the second miracle that Jesus did, when he was come out of Judaea into Galilee.

John 5

  1. After this there was a feast of the Jews; and Jesus went up to Jerusalem.
  2. Now there is at Jerusalem by the sheep market a pool, which is called in the Hebrew tongue Bethesda, having five porches.
  3. In these lay a great multitude of impotent folk, of blind, halt, withered, waiting for the moving of the water.
  4. For an angel went down at a certain season into the pool, and troubled the water: whosoever then first after the troubling of the water stepped in was made whole of whatsoever disease he had.
  5. And a certain man was there, which had an infirmity thirty and eight years.
  6. When Jesus saw him lie, and knew that he had been now a long time in that case, he saith unto him, Wilt thou be made whole?
  7. The impotent man answered him, Sir, I have no man, when the water is troubled, to put me into the pool: but while I am coming, another steppeth down before me.
  8. Jesus saith unto him, Rise, take up thy bed, and walk.
  9. And immediately the man was made whole, and took up his bed, and walked: and on the same day was the sabbath.
  10. The Jews therefore said unto him that was cured, It is the sabbath day: it is not lawful for thee to carry thy bed.
  11. He answered them, He that made me whole, the same said unto me, Take up thy bed, and walk.
  12. Then asked they him, What man is that which said unto thee, Take up thy bed, and walk?
  13. And he that was healed wist not who it was: for Jesus had conveyed himself away, a multitude being in that place.
  14. Afterward Jesus findeth him in the temple, and said unto him, Behold, thou art made whole: sin no more, lest a worse thing come unto thee.
  15. The man departed, and told the Jews that it was Jesus, which had made him whole.
  16. And therefore did the Jews persecute Jesus, and sought to slay him, because he had done these things on the sabbath day.
  17. But Jesus answered them, My Father worketh hitherto, and I work.
  18. Therefore the Jews sought the more to kill him, because he not only had broken the sabbath, but said also that God was his Father, making himself equal with God.
  19. Then answered Jesus and said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, The Son can do nothing of himself, but what he seeth the Father do: for what things soever he doeth, these also doeth the Son likewise.
  20. For the Father loveth the Son, and sheweth him all things that himself doeth: and he will shew him greater works than these, that ye may marvel.
  21. For as the Father raiseth up the dead, and quickeneth them; even so the Son quickeneth whom he will.
  22. For the Father judgeth no man, but hath committed all judgment unto the Son:
  23. That all men should honour the Son, even as they honour the Father. He that honoureth not the Son honoureth not the Father which hath sent him.
  24. Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life.
  25. Verily, verily, I say unto you, The hour is coming, and now is, when the dead shall hear the voice of the Son of God: and they that hear shall live.
  26. For as the Father hath life in himself; so hath he given to the Son to have life in himself;
  27. And hath given him authority to execute judgment also, because he is the Son of man.
  28. Marvel not at this: for the hour is coming, in the which all that are in the graves shall hear his voice,
  29. And shall come forth; they that have done good, unto the resurrection of life; and they that have done evil, unto the resurrection of damnation.
  30. I can of mine own self do nothing: as I hear, I judge: and my judgment is just; because I seek not mine own will, but the will of the Father which hath sent me.
  31. If I bear witness of myself, my witness is not true.
  32. There is another that beareth witness of me; and I know that the witness which he witnesseth of me is true.
  33. Ye sent unto John, and he bare witness unto the truth.
  34. But I receive not testimony from man: but these things I say, that ye might be saved.
  35. He was a burning and a shining light: and ye were willing for a season to rejoice in his light.
  36. But I have greater witness than that of John: for the works which the Father hath given me to finish, the same works that I do, bear witness of me, that the Father hath sent me.
  37. And the Father himself, which hath sent me, hath borne witness of me. Ye have neither heard his voice at any time, nor seen his shape.
  38. And ye have not his word abiding in you: for whom he hath sent, him ye believe not.
  39. Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me.
  40. And ye will not come to me, that ye might have life.
  41. I receive not honour from men.
  42. But I know you, that ye have not the love of God in you.
  43. I am come in my Father's name, and ye receive me not: if another shall come in his own name, him ye will receive.
  44. How can ye believe, which receive honour one of another, and seek not the honour that cometh from God only?
  45. Do not think that I will accuse you to the Father: there is one that accuseth you, even Moses, in whom ye trust.
  46. For had ye believed Moses, ye would have believed me: for he wrote of me.
  47. But if ye believe not his writings, how shall ye believe my words?

  1. After these things Jesus went over the sea of Galilee, which is the sea of Tiberias.
  2. And a great multitude followed him, because they saw his miracles which he did on them that were diseased.
  3. And Jesus went up into a mountain, and there he sat with his disciples.
  4. And the passover, a feast of the Jews, was nigh.
  5. When Jesus then lifted up his eyes, and saw a great company come unto him, he saith unto Philip, Whence shall we buy bread, that these may eat?
  6. And this he said to prove him: for he himself knew what he would do.
  7. Philip answered him, Two hundred pennyworth of bread is not sufficient for them, that every one of them may take a little.
  8. One of his disciples, Andrew, Simon Peter's brother, saith unto him,
  9. There is a lad here, which hath five barley loaves, and two small fishes: but what are they among so many?
  10. And Jesus said, Make the men sit down. Now there was much grass in the place. So the men sat down, in number about five thousand.
  11. And Jesus took the loaves; and when he had given thanks, he distributed to the disciples, and the disciples to them that were set down; and likewise of the fishes as much as they would.
  12. When they were filled, he said unto his disciples, Gather up the fragments that remain, that nothing be lost.
  13. Therefore they gathered them together, and filled twelve baskets with the fragments of the five barley loaves, which remained over and above unto them that had eaten.
  14. Then those men, when they had seen the miracle that Jesus did, said, This is of a truth that prophet that should come into the world.
  15. When Jesus therefore perceived that they would come and take him by force, to make him a king, he departed again into a mountain himself alone.
  16. And when even was now come, his disciples went down unto the sea,
  17. And entered into a ship, and went over the sea toward Capernaum. And it was now dark, and Jesus was not come to them.
  18. And the sea arose by reason of a great wind that blew.
  19. So when they had rowed about five and twenty or thirty furlongs, they see Jesus walking on the sea, and drawing nigh unto the ship: and they were afraid.
  20. But he saith unto them, It is I; be not afraid.
  21. Then they willingly received him into the ship: and immediately the ship was at the land whither they went.
  22. The day following, when the people which stood on the other side of the sea saw that there was none other boat there, save that one whereinto his disciples were entered, and that Jesus went not with his disciples into the boat, but that his disciples were gone away alone;
  23. (Howbeit there came other boats from Tiberias nigh unto the place where they did eat bread, after that the Lord had given thanks:)
  24. When the people therefore saw that Jesus was not there, neither his disciples, they also took shipping, and came to Capernaum, seeking for Jesus.
  25. And when they had found him on the other side of the sea, they said unto him, Rabbi, when camest thou hither?
  26. Jesus answered them and said, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Ye seek me, not because ye saw the miracles, but because ye did eat of the loaves, and were filled.
  27. Labour not for the meat which perisheth, but for that meat which endureth unto everlasting life, which the Son of man shall give unto you: for him hath God the Father sealed.
  28. Then said they unto him, What shall we do, that we might work the works of God?
  29. Jesus answered and said unto them, This is the work of God, that ye believe on him whom he hath sent.
  30. They said therefore unto him, What sign shewest thou then, that we may see, and believe thee? what dost thou work?
  31. Our fathers did eat manna in the desert; as it is written, He gave them bread from heaven to eat.
  32. Then Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Moses gave you not that bread from heaven; but my Father giveth you the true bread from heaven.
  33. For the bread of God is he which cometh down from heaven, and giveth life unto the world.
  34. Then said they unto him, Lord, evermore give us this bread.
  35. And Jesus said unto them, I am the bread of life: he that cometh to me shall never hunger; and he that believeth on me shall never thirst.
  36. But I said unto you, That ye also have seen me, and believe not.
  37. All that the Father giveth me shall come to me; and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out.
  38. For I came down from heaven, not to do mine own will, but the will of him that sent me.
  39. And this is the Father's will which hath sent me, that of all which he hath given me I should lose nothing, but should raise it up again at the last day.
  40. And this is the will of him that sent me, that every one which seeth the Son, and believeth on him, may have everlasting life: and I will raise him up at the last day.
  41. The Jews then murmured at him, because he said, I am the bread which came down from heaven.
  42. And they said, Is not this Jesus, the son of Joseph, whose father and mother we know? how is it then that he saith, I came down from heaven?
  43. Jesus therefore answered and said unto them, Murmur not among yourselves.
  44. No man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me draw him: and I will raise him up at the last day.
  45. It is written in the prophets, And they shall be all taught of God. Every man therefore that hath heard, and hath learned of the Father, cometh unto me.
  46. Not that any man hath seen the Father, save he which is of God, he hath seen the Father.
  47. Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me hath everlasting life.
  48. I am that bread of life.
  49. Your fathers did eat manna in the wilderness, and are dead.
  50. This is the bread which cometh down from heaven, that a man may eat thereof, and not die.
  51. I am the living bread which came down from heaven: if any man eat of this bread, he shall live for ever: and the bread that I will give is my flesh, which I will give for the life of the world.
  52. The Jews therefore strove among themselves, saying, How can this man give us his flesh to eat?
  53. Then Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except ye eat the flesh of the Son of man, and drink his blood, ye have no life in you.
  54. Whoso eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, hath eternal life; and I will raise him up at the last day.
  55. For my flesh is meat indeed, and my blood is drink indeed.
  56. He that eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, dwelleth in me, and I in him.
  57. As the living Father hath sent me, and I live by the Father: so he that eateth me, even he shall live by me.
  58. This is that bread which came down from heaven: not as your fathers did eat manna, and are dead: he that eateth of this bread shall live for ever.
  59. These things said he in the synagogue, as he taught in Capernaum.
  60. Many therefore of his disciples, when they had heard this, said, This is an hard saying; who can hear it?
  61. When Jesus knew in himself that his disciples murmured at it, he said unto them, Doth this offend you?
  62. What and if ye shall see the Son of man ascend up where he was before?
  63. It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.
  64. But there are some of you that believe not. For Jesus knew from the beginning who they were that believed not, and who should betray him.
  65. And he said, Therefore said I unto you, that no man can come unto me, except it were given unto him of my Father.
  66. From that time many of his disciples went back, and walked no more with him.
  67. Then said Jesus unto the twelve, Will ye also go away?
  68. Then Simon Peter answered him, Lord, to whom shall we go? thou hast the words of eternal life.
  69. And we believe and are sure that thou art that Christ, the Son of the living God.
  70. Jesus answered them, Have not I chosen you twelve, and one of you is a devil?
  71. He spake of Judas Iscariot the son of Simon: for he it was that should betray him, being one of the twelve.

John 7

  1. After these things Jesus walked in Galilee: for he would not walk in Jewry, because the Jews sought to kill him.
  2. Now the Jews' feast of tabernacles was at hand.
  3. His brethren therefore said unto him, Depart hence, and go into Judaea, that thy disciples also may see the works that thou doest.
  4. For there is no man that doeth any thing in secret, and he himself seeketh to be known openly. If thou do these things, shew thyself to the world.
  5. For neither did his brethren believe in him.
  6. Then Jesus said unto them, My time is not yet come: but your time is alway ready.
  7. The world cannot hate you; but me it hateth, because I testify of it, that the works thereof are evil.
  8. Go ye up unto this feast: I go not up yet unto this feast; for my time is not yet full come.
  9. When he had said these words unto them, he abode still in Galilee.
  10. But when his brethren were gone up, then went he also up unto the feast, not openly, but as it were in secret.
  11. Then the Jews sought him at the feast, and said, Where is he?
  12. And there was much murmuring among the people concerning him: for some said, He is a good man: others said, Nay; but he deceiveth the people.
  13. Howbeit no man spake openly of him for fear of the Jews.
  14. Now about the midst of the feast Jesus went up into the temple, and taught.
  15. And the Jews marvelled, saying, How knoweth this man letters, having never learned?
  16. Jesus answered them, and said, My doctrine is not mine, but his that sent me.
  17. If any man will do his will, he shall know of the doctrine, whether it be of God, or whether I speak of myself.
  18. He that speaketh of himself seeketh his own glory: but he that seeketh his glory that sent him, the same is true, and no unrighteousness is in him.
  19. Did not Moses give you the law, and yet none of you keepeth the law? Why go ye about to kill me?
  20. The people answered and said, Thou hast a devil: who goeth about to kill thee?
  21. Jesus answered and said unto them, I have done one work, and ye all marvel.
  22. Moses therefore gave unto you circumcision; (not because it is of Moses, but of the fathers;) and ye on the sabbath day circumcise a man.
  23. If a man on the sabbath day receive circumcision, that the law of Moses should not be broken; are ye angry at me, because I have made a man every whit whole on the sabbath day?
  24. Judge not according to the appearance, but judge righteous judgment.
  25. Then said some of them of Jerusalem, Is not this he, whom they seek to kill?
  26. But, lo, he speaketh boldly, and they say nothing unto him. Do the rulers know indeed that this is the very Christ?
  27. Howbeit we know this man whence he is: but when Christ cometh, no man knoweth whence he is.
  28. Then cried Jesus in the temple as he taught, saying, Ye both know me, and ye know whence I am: and I am not come of myself, but he that sent me is true, whom ye know not.
  29. But I know him: for I am from him, and he hath sent me.
  30. Then they sought to take him: but no man laid hands on him, because his hour was not yet come.
  31. And many of the people believed on him, and said, When Christ cometh, will he do more miracles than these which this man hath done?
  32. The Pharisees heard that the people murmured such things concerning him; and the Pharisees and the chief priests sent officers to take him.
  33. Then said Jesus unto them, Yet a little while am I with you, and then I go unto him that sent me.
  34. Ye shall seek me, and shall not find me: and where I am, thither ye cannot come.
  35. Then said the Jews among themselves, Whither will he go, that we shall not find him? will he go unto the dispersed among the Gentiles, and teach the Gentiles?
  36. What manner of saying is this that he said, Ye shall seek me, and shall not find me: and where I am, thither ye cannot come?
  37. In the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried, saying, If any man thirst, let him come unto me, and drink.
  38. He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water.
  39. (But this spake he of the Spirit, which they that believe on him should receive: for the Holy Ghost was not yet given; because that Jesus was not yet glorified.)
  40. Many of the people therefore, when they heard this saying, said, Of a truth this is the Prophet.
  41. Others said, This is the Christ. But some said, Shall Christ come out of Galilee?
  42. Hath not the scripture said, That Christ cometh of the seed of David, and out of the town of Bethlehem, where David was?
  43. So there was a division among the people because of him.
  44. And some of them would have taken him; but no man laid hands on him.
  45. Then came the officers to the chief priests and Pharisees; and they said unto them, Why have ye not brought him?
  46. The officers answered, Never man spake like this man.
  47. Then answered them the Pharisees, Are ye also deceived?
  48. Have any of the rulers or of the Pharisees believed on him?
  49. But this people who knoweth not the law are cursed.
  50. Nicodemus saith unto them, (he that came to Jesus by night, being one of them,)
  51. Doth our law judge any man, before it hear him, and know what he doeth?
  52. They answered and said unto him, Art thou also of Galilee? Search, and look: for out of Galilee ariseth no prophet.
  53. And every man went unto his own house.

John 8

  1. Jesus went unto the mount of Olives.
  2. And early in the morning he came again into the temple, and all the people came unto him; and he sat down, and taught them.
  3. And the scribes and Pharisees brought unto him a woman taken in adultery; and when they had set her in the midst,
  4. They say unto him, Master, this woman was taken in adultery, in the very act.
  5. Now Moses in the law commanded us, that such should be stoned: but what sayest thou?
  6. This they said, tempting him, that they might have to accuse him. But Jesus stooped down, and with his finger wrote on the ground, as though he heard them not.
  7. So when they continued asking him, he lifted up himself, and said unto them, He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her.
  8. And again he stooped down, and wrote on the ground.
  9. And they which heard it, being convicted by their own conscience, went out one by one, beginning at the eldest, even unto the last: and Jesus was left alone, and the woman standing in the midst.
  10. When Jesus had lifted up himself, and saw none but the woman, he said unto her, Woman, where are those thine accusers? hath no man condemned thee?
  11. She said, No man, Lord. And Jesus said unto her, Neither do I condemn thee: go, and sin no more.
  12. Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.
  13. The Pharisees therefore said unto him, Thou bearest record of thyself; thy record is not true.
  14. Jesus answered and said unto them, Though I bear record of myself, yet my record is true: for I know whence I came, and whither I go; but ye cannot tell whence I come, and whither I go.
  15. Ye judge after the flesh; I judge no man.
  16. And yet if I judge, my judgment is true: for I am not alone, but I and the Father that sent me.
  17. It is also written in your law, that the testimony of two men is true.
  18. I am one that bear witness of myself, and the Father that sent me beareth witness of me.
  19. Then said they unto him, Where is thy Father? Jesus answered, Ye neither know me, nor my Father: if ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also.
  20. These words spake Jesus in the treasury, as he taught in the temple: and no man laid hands on him; for his hour was not yet come.
  21. Then said Jesus again unto them, I go my way, and ye shall seek me, and shall die in your sins: whither I go, ye cannot come.
  22. Then said the Jews, Will he kill himself? because he saith, Whither I go, ye cannot come.
  23. And he said unto them, Ye are from beneath; I am from above: ye are of this world; I am not of this world.
  24. I said therefore unto you, that ye shall die in your sins: for if ye believe not that I am he, ye shall die in your sins.
  25. Then said they unto him, Who art thou? And Jesus saith unto them, Even the same that I said unto you from the beginning.
  26. I have many things to say and to judge of you: but he that sent me is true; and I speak to the world those things which I have heard of him.
  27. They understood not that he spake to them of the Father.
  28. Then said Jesus unto them, When ye have lifted up the Son of man, then shall ye know that I am he, and that I do nothing of myself; but as my Father hath taught me, I speak these things.
  29. And he that sent me is with me: the Father hath not left me alone; for I do always those things that please him.
  30. As he spake these words, many believed on him.
  31. Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed;
  32. And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.
  33. They answered him, We be Abraham's seed, and were never in bondage to any man: how sayest thou, Ye shall be made free?
  34. Jesus answered them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whosoever committeth sin is the servant of sin.
  35. And the servant abideth not in the house for ever: but the Son abideth ever.
  36. If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.
  37. I know that ye are Abraham's seed; but ye seek to kill me, because my word hath no place in you.
  38. I speak that which I have seen with my Father: and ye do that which ye have seen with your father.
  39. They answered and said unto him, Abraham is our father. Jesus saith unto them, If ye were Abraham's children, ye would do the works of Abraham.
  40. But now ye seek to kill me, a man that hath told you the truth, which I have heard of God: this did not Abraham.
  41. Ye do the deeds of your father. Then said they to him, We be not born of fornication; we have one Father, even God.
  42. Jesus said unto them, If God were your Father, ye would love me: for I proceeded forth and came from God; neither came I of myself, but he sent me.
  43. Why do ye not understand my speech? even because ye cannot hear my word.
  44. Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.
  45. And because I tell you the truth, ye believe me not.
  46. Which of you convinceth me of sin? And if I say the truth, why do ye not believe me?
  47. He that is of God heareth God's words: ye therefore hear them not, because ye are not of God.
  48. Then answered the Jews, and said unto him, Say we not well that thou art a Samaritan, and hast a devil?
  49. Jesus answered, I have not a devil; but I honour my Father, and ye do dishonour me.
  50. And I seek not mine own glory: there is one that seeketh and judgeth.
  51. Verily, verily, I say unto you, If a man keep my saying, he shall never see death.
  52. Then said the Jews unto him, Now we know that thou hast a devil. Abraham is dead, and the prophets; and thou sayest, If a man keep my saying, he shall never taste of death.
  53. Art thou greater than our father Abraham, which is dead? and the prophets are dead: whom makest thou thyself?
  54. Jesus answered, If I honour myself, my honour is nothing: it is my Father that honoureth me; of whom ye say, that he is your God:
  55. Yet ye have not known him; but I know him: and if I should say, I know him not, I shall be a liar like unto you: but I know him, and keep his saying.
  56. Your father Abraham rejoiced to see my day: and he saw it, and was glad.
  57. Then said the Jews unto him, Thou art not yet fifty years old, and hast thou seen Abraham?
  58. Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I am.
  59. Then took they up stones to cast at him: but Jesus hid himself, and went out of the temple, going through the midst of them, and so passed by.

John 9

  1. And as Jesus passed by, he saw a man which was blind from his birth.
  2. And his disciples asked him, saying, Master, who did sin, this man, or his parents, that he was born blind?
  3. Jesus answered, Neither hath this man sinned, nor his parents: but that the works of God should be made manifest in him.
  4. I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work.
  5. As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world.
  6. When he had thus spoken, he spat on the ground, and made clay of the spittle, and he anointed the eyes of the blind man with the clay,
  7. And said unto him, Go, wash in the pool of Siloam, (which is by interpretation, Sent.) He went his way therefore, and washed, and came seeing.
  8. The neighbours therefore, and they which before had seen him that he was blind, said, Is not this he that sat and begged?
  9. Some said, This is he: others said, He is like him: but he said, I am he.
  10. Therefore said they unto him, How were thine eyes opened?
  11. He answered and said, A man that is called Jesus made clay, and anointed mine eyes, and said unto me, Go to the pool of Siloam, and wash: and I went and washed, and I received sight.
  12. Then said they unto him, Where is he? He said, I know not.
  13. They brought to the Pharisees him that aforetime was blind.
  14. And it was the sabbath day when Jesus made the clay, and opened his eyes.
  15. Then again the Pharisees also asked him how he had received his sight. He said unto them, He put clay upon mine eyes, and I washed, and do see.
  16. Therefore said some of the Pharisees, This man is not of God, because he keepeth not the sabbath day. Others said, How can a man that is a sinner do such miracles? And there was a division among them.
  17. They say unto the blind man again, What sayest thou of him, that he hath opened thine eyes? He said, He is a prophet.
  18. But the Jews did not believe concerning him, that he had been blind, and received his sight, until they called the parents of him that had received his sight.
  19. And they asked them, saying, Is this your son, who ye say was born blind? how then doth he now see?
  20. His parents answered them and said, We know that this is our son, and that he was born blind:
  21. But by what means he now seeth, we know not; or who hath opened his eyes, we know not: he is of age; ask him: he shall speak for himself.
  22. These words spake his parents, because they feared the Jews: for the Jews had agreed already, that if any man did confess that he was Christ, he should be put out of the synagogue.
  23. Therefore said his parents, He is of age; ask him.
  24. Then again called they the man that was blind, and said unto him, Give God the praise: we know that this man is a sinner.
  25. He answered and said, Whether he be a sinner or no, I know not: one thing I know, that, whereas I was blind, now I see.
  26. Then said they to him again, What did he to thee? how opened he thine eyes?
  27. He answered them, I have told you already, and ye did not hear: wherefore would ye hear it again? will ye also be his disciples?
  28. Then they reviled him, and said, Thou art his disciple; but we are Moses' disciples.
  29. We know that God spake unto Moses: as for this fellow, we know not from whence he is.
  30. The man answered and said unto them, Why herein is a marvellous thing, that ye know not from whence he is, and yet he hath opened mine eyes.
  31. Now we know that God heareth not sinners: but if any man be a worshipper of God, and doeth his will, him he heareth.
  32. Since the world began was it not heard that any man opened the eyes of one that was born blind.
  33. If this man were not of God, he could do nothing.
  34. They answered and said unto him, Thou wast altogether born in sins, and dost thou teach us? And they cast him out.
  35. Jesus heard that they had cast him out; and when he had found him, he said unto him, Dost thou believe on the Son of God?
  36. He answered and said, Who is he, Lord, that I might believe on him?
  37. And Jesus said unto him, Thou hast both seen him, and it is he that talketh with thee.
  38. And he said, Lord, I believe. And he worshipped him.
  39. And Jesus said, For judgment I am come into this world, that they which see not might see; and that they which see might be made blind.
  40. And some of the Pharisees which were with him heard these words, and said unto him, Are we blind also?
  41. Jesus said unto them, If ye were blind, ye should have no sin: but now ye say, We see; therefore your sin remaineth.
