19 1 And in the fourth watch of the night Jesus came unto them, walking upon the 2 water, after they had rowed(10) with difficulty about twenty-five or thirty furlongs.

Mt. 14, 25.

Jo. 6, 19a, c.

19 And when he drew near unto their boat, his disciples saw him walking on the water; and they were troubled, and supposed that it was a false appearance; and they cried out from their fear. But Jesus straightway spoke unto them, and said, Take courage, for it is I; fear not. Then Cephas answered and said unto him, My Lord, if it be thou, bid me to come unto thee on the water. And Jesus said unto him, Come. And Cephas went down out of the boat, and walked on the water to come unto Jesus. But Arabic, when he saw the wind strong, he feared, and was on the point of sink- p. 74 ing; and he lifted up his voice, and said, My Lord, save me. And immediately our Lord stretched out his hand and took hold of him, and said unto him, 9 Thou of little faith, why didst thou doubt? And when Jesus came near, he went up 10 unto them into the boat, he and Simon, and immediately the wind ceased. And those that were in the ship came and worshipped him, and said, Truly thou art the 11 Son of God. And straightway that ship arrived at the land which they made for. 12 And when they came out of the ship to the land, they marvelled greatly and were 13 perplexed in themselves: and they had not understood by means of(1) that bread, because their heart was gross.

14 And when the people of that region knew of the arrival of Jesus, they made haste in all that land, and began to bring those that were diseased,(2) borne in their 15 beds to the place where they heard that he was. And wheresoever the place might be which he entered, of the villages or the cities, they laid the sick in the markets, and sought of him that they might touch(3) were it only the edge of his garment: and all that touched(4) him were healed and lived.(5)

16 And on the day after that, the multitude which was standing on the shore of the sea saw that there was there no other ship save that into which the disciples had 17 gone up, and that Jesus went not up into the ship with his disciples (but there were other ships from Tiberias near(6) the place where they ate the bread when Jesus blessed 18 it): and when that multitude saw that Jesus was not there, nor yet his disciples, they 19 Arabic, went up into those ships, and came to Capernaum, and sought Jesus. And p. 75 when they found him on the other side of the sea, they said unto him, Our 20 Master, when camest thou hither? Jesus answered and said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Ye have not sought me because of(7) your seeing the signs, but because of 21 your eating the bread and being satisfied. Serve not the food which perisheth, but the food which abideth in eternal life,(8) which the Son of man will give unto you: him(9) 22 hath God the Father sealed. They said unto him, What shall we do that we may 23 work the work of God? Jesus answered and said unto them, This is the work of 24 God, that ye believe in him whom he hath sent. They said unto him, What sign hast thou done, that we may see, and believe in thee? what hast thou wrought? 25 Our fathers ate the manna in the wilderness; as it was written, Bread from heaven 26 gave he them to eat. Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Moses gave you not bread from heaven; but my Father gave(10) you the bread of truth n from 27 heaven. The bread of God is that which came down from heaven and gave the 28, 29 world life. They said unto him, Our Lord, give us at all times this bread. Jesus said unto them, I am the bread of life: whosoever cometh unto me shall not hun- 30 ger, and whosoever believeth in me shall not thirst for ever. But I said unto you, 31 Ye have seen me, and have not believed. And all that my Father hath given to me cometh unto me; and whosoever cometh unto me I shall not cast him forth with- 32 out. I came down from heaven, not to do my own will, but to do the will of him 33 that sent me; and this is the will of him that sent me, that I should lose nothing of 34 Arabic, that which he gave me, but raise it up in the last day. This is the will of p. 76 my Father, that every one that seeth the Son, and believeth in him, should have eternal life; and I will raise him up in the last day.

35 The Jews therefore murmured against him because of his saying, I am the bread 36 which came down from heaven. And they said, Is not this Jesus, the son of Joseph, whose father and mother we know? then how saith this man, I came down from 37, 38 heaven? Jesus answered and said unto them, Murmur not one with another. No

19 man is able to come unto me, except the Father which sent me draw him; and I will 39 raise him up in the last day. It is written in the prophet, They shall all be the taught of God. Every one who heareth from the Father now,(1) and learneth of him, cometh 40 unto me. No man now seeth the Father; but he that is from God, he it is that seeth 41 the Father. Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whosoever believeth in me hath eternal 42, 43 life. I am the bread of life. Your fathers ate the manna in the wilderness, and 44 they died. This is the bread which came down from heaven, that a man may eat 45 of it, and not die. I am the bread of life which came down from heaven: and if a man eat of this bread he shall live for ever: and the bread which I shall give is my body, which I give for the life of the world.

46 The Jews therefore quarrelled one with another, and said, How can he give us 47 Arabic, his body that we may eat it? Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto p. 77 you, If ye do not eat the body of the Son of man and drink his blood, ye shall 48 not have life in yourselves. Whosoever eateth of my body and drinketh of my blood 49 hath eternal life; and I will raise him up in the last day. My body truly is meat,(3) and 50 my blood truly is drink.(4) Whosoever eateth my body and drinketh my blood abideth 51 in me, and I in him--as the living Father sent me, and I am alive because of the 52 Father; and whosoever eateth me, he also shall live because of me. This is the bread which came down from heaven: and not according as your fathers ate the 53 manna, and died: whosoever eateth of this bread shall live for ever. This he said in 54 the synagogue, when he was teaching in Capernaum. And many of his disciples, when they heard, said, This word is hard; who is he that can hear it?

20 1 And Jesus knew within himself that his disciples were murmuring because of a that, and he said unto them, Doth this trouble you? What if ye should see the Son 3 of man then ascend to the place where he was of old? It is the spirit that quickeneth, and the body profiteth nothing: the words(5) that I speak unto you are spirit 4 and life. But there are some of you that do not believe. And Jesus knew beforehand who they were who should(6) not believe, and who it was that should betray 5 him. And he said unto them, Therefore I said unto you, No man can come unto me, if that hath not been given him by the Father.

6 Arabic, And because of this word many of his disciples turned back and walked 7 p. 78 not with him. And Jesus said unto the twelve, Do ye haply also wish to 8 go away? Simon Cephas answered and said, My Lord, to whom shall we go? thou 9 hast the words of eternal life. And we have believed and known that thou art the 10 Messiah, the Son of the living God. Jesus said unto them, Did not I choose you, 11 ye company of the twelve, and of you one is a devil? He said that because of Judas the son of Simon Iscariot; for he, being of the twelve, was purposed to(7) betray him.

12 And while he was speaking, one of the Pharisees came asking of him that he 13 would eat with him: and he went in, and reclined to meat. And that Pharisee, when 14 he saw it,(8) marvelled that he had not first cleansed himself before his eating. Jesus said unto him, Now do ye Pharisees wash the outside of the cup and the dish, and ye think that ye are cleansed; but your inside is full of injustice and wickedness.

15, 16 Ye of little mind, did not he that made the outside make the inside? Now give what ye have(9) in alms, and everything shall be clean unto you.

17, 18 And there came to him Pharisees and scribes, come from Jerusalem. And when they saw some of his disciples eating bread while they had not washed their hands, 19 they found fault. For all of the Jews and the Pharisees, if they wash not their 20 hands thoroughly, eat not; for they held(10) to the ordinance(11) of the elders. And they ate not what was bought from the market, except they washed it; and many other things did they keep of what they had received, such as the washing of cups, and 21 measures, and vessels of brass, and couches. And scribes(12) and Pharisees asked him,

20 Arabic, Why do thy disciples not walk according to the ordinances of the elders, but 22 p. 79 eat bread without washing their hands? Jesus answered and said unto them, Why do ye also overstep the command of God by reason of your ordinance? 23 God said, Honour thy father and thy mother; and, Whosoever revileth his father and 24 his mother shall surely die. But ye say, If a man say to his father or to his mother, 25 What thou receivest(1) from me is an offering,--and ye(1) suffer him not to do any- 26 thing for his father or his mother; and ye(1) make void and reject the word of God by reason of the ordinance that ye have ordained and commanded, such as the wash- 27 ing of cups and measures, and what resembles that ye do much. And ye forsook 28 the command of God, and held to the ordinance of men. Do(2) ye well to wrong(3) 29 the command of God in order that ye may establish your ordinance? Ye hypocrites, well did Isaiah the prophet prophesy concerning you, and say,

30 This people honoureth me with its(4) lips;

But their heart is very far from me.

31 But in vain do they fear me,

In that they teach the commands of men.

32 And Jesus called all the multitude, and said unto them. Hear me, all of you, and 33 understand: nothing without the man, which then enters him, is able to defile him; 34 but what goeth out of him, that it is which defileth the man. He that hath ears 35 that hear, let him hear. Then his disciples drew near, and said unto him, Knowest 36 thou that the Pharisees which heard this word were angry? He answered and said unto them, Every plant which my Father which is in heaven planted not shall be 37 Arabic, uprooted. Let them alone; for they are blind leading blind. And if the p. 80 blind lead(5) the blind, both of them shall fall into a hollow.

38 And when Jesus entered the house from the multitude, Simon Cephas asked him, 39 and said unto him, My Lord, explain to us that parable. He said unto them, Do ye also thus not understand? Know ye not that everything that entereth into the 40 man from without cannot defile him; because it entereth not into his heart; it entereth into his stomach only, and thence is cast forth in the cleansing which maketh 41 clean all the food?(6) The thing which goeth forth from the mouth of the man pro- 42 ceedeth from his heart, and it is that which defileth the man. From within(7) the 43 heart of men proceed evil thoughts, fornication, adultery, theft, false witness, murder, injustice, wickedness, deceit, stupidity, evil eye, calumny, pride, foolishness: 44 these evils all of them from within proceed from the heart, and they are the things 45 which defile the man: but if a man eat while he washeth not his hands, he is not defiled.

46 And Jesus went out thence, and came to the borders of Tyre and Sidon. And he entered into a certain house, and desired that no man should know it;(8) and 47 he could not be hid. But straightway a Canaanitish woman, whose daughter had an 48, 49 unclean spirit, heard of him. And that woman was a Gentile of Emesa of Syria. And she came out after him, crying out, and saying, Have mercy upon me, my Lord, thou 50 son of David; for my daughter is seized in an evil way by Satan.(9) And he answered Arabic. her not a word. And his disciples came and besought him, and said, Send 51 p. 81 her away: for she crieth after us. He answered and said unto them, I was 52 not sent except to the sheep that are gone astray of the house of Israel. But she came and worshipped him, and said, My Lord, help me, have mercy upon me.

53 Jesus said unto her, It is not seemly that the children's bread should be taken and 54 thrown to the dogs. But she said, Yea, my Lord: the dogs also eat of the crumbs 55 that fall from their masters' tables, and live. Then said Jesus unto her, O woman, 56 great is thy faith: it shall be unto thee as thou hast desired. Go then thy way; and 57 because of this word, the devil is gone out of thy daughter. And her daughter was 58 healed in that hour. And that woman went away to her house, and found her daughter laid upon the bed, and the devil gone out of her.

SECTION XXI.

21 1 And Jesus went out again from the borders of Tyre and Sidon, and came to the 2 sea of Galilee, towards the borders of Decapolis. And they brought unto him one dumb and deaf, and entreated him that he would lay his hand upon him and heal 3 him. And he drew him away from the multitude, and went away alone, and spat 4 upon his fingers, and thrust them into his ears, and touched his tongue; and looked 5 to heaven, and sighed, and said unto him, Be opened. And in that hour his ears 6 were opened, and the bond of his tongue was loosed, and he spake with ease. And Jesus charged them much that they should not tell this to any man: but the more 7 he charged them, the mare they increased in publishing, and marvelled much, and Arabic. said, This man doeth everything well: he made the deaf to hear, and those p. 82 that lacked speech to speak.

8, 9 And while he was passing through the land of Samaria, he came to one of the cities of the Samaritans, called Sychar, beside the field which Jacob gave to Joseph to his son. And there was there a spring of water of Jacob's. And Jesus was fatigued from the exertion of the way, and sat at the spring. And the time was about the sixth hour.(1) And a woman of Samaria came to draw water; and Jesus said unto 12 her, Give me water, that I may drink. And Iris disciples had entered into the city 13 to buy for themselves food. And that Samaritan woman said unto him, How dost thou, being a Jew, ask me to give thee to drink, while I am a Samaritan woman? 14 (And the Jews mingle not with the Samaritans.(2)) Jesus answered and said unto her, If thou knewest the gift of God, and who this is that said unto thee, Give me 15 to drink; thou wouldest ask him, and he would give thee the water of life. That woman said unto him, My Lord, thou hast no bucket, and the well is deep: from 16 whence hast thou the water of life? Can it be that thou art greater than our father Jacob, who gave us this well, and drank from it, and his children, and his sheep? 17 Jesus answered and said unto her, Every one that drinketh of this water shall thirst again: but whosoever drinketh of the water which I shall give him shall not thirst for ever: but the water which I shall give him shall be in him a spring of water springing 19 up unto eternal life. That woman said unto him, My Lord, give me of this water, that 20 I may not thirst again, neither come and draw water from here. Jesus said unto her, 21 Arabic. Go and call thy husband, and come hither. She said unto him, I have no 22 p. 83 husband. Jesus said unto her, Thou saidst well, I have no husband: five husbands hast thou had, and this man whom thou hast now is not thy husband; and 23 in this thou saidst truly. That woman said unto him, My Lord, I perceive thee to 24 be a prophet. Our fathers worshipped in this mountain; and ye say that in Jeru- 25 salem is the place in which worship must be. Jesus said unto her, Woman, believe me, an hour cometh, when neither in this mountain, nor yet in Jerusalem, shall ye wor- 26 ship the Father. Ye worship that which ye know not: but we worship that which 27 we know: for salvation is of the Jews. But an hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and truth: and the Father also 28 seeketh such as these worshippers. For God is a Spirit: and they that worship him 29 must worship him in spirit and in truth. That woman said unto him, I know that 30 the Messiah cometh: and when he is come, he will teach us everything. Jesus said unto her, I that speak unto thee am he.

31 And while he was speaking, his disciples came; and they wondered how he would speak(3) with a woman; but not one of them said unto him, What seekest thou? or, 32 What(4) speakest thou with her? And the woman left her waterpot, and went to the 33 city, and said to the people, Come, and see a man who told me all that ever I did: 34 perhaps then he is the Messiah. And people went out from the city, and came to 35 him. And in the mean while his disciples besought him, and said unto him, Our 36, 37 master, eat. And he said unto them, I have food to eat that ye know not. And the disciples said amongst themselves, Can any one have brought him aught to eat?(5)

21 38 Jesus said unto them, My food is to do the will of him that sent me, and to accom- 39 Arabic, plish his work. Said ye not that after four months cometh the harvest? p. 84 behold, I therefore say unto you, Lift up your eyes, and behold the lands, 40 that they have become white, and the harvest is already come.(1) And he that reapeth receiveth his wages, and gathereth the fruit of eternal life;(2) and the sower and 41 the reaper rejoice together. For in this is found the word of truth, One soweth, and 42 another reapeth. And I sent you to reap that in which ye have not laboured: others laboured, and ye have entered on their labour.

43 And from that city many of the Samaritans believed in him because of the words 44 of that woman, who testified and said, He told me all that ever I did. And when those Samaritans came unto him, they besought him to abide with them; and he 45, 46 abode with them two days. And many believed in him because of his word; and they said to that woman, Now not because of thy saying have we believed in him: we have heard and known that this truly is the Messiah, the Saviour of the world.

47, 48 And after two days Jesus went out thence and departed to Galilee. And Jesus 49 testified that a prophet is not honoured in his own city.And when he came to Galilee, the Galilaeans received him.

22 1 And when Jesus came to a certain village, there drew near to him a leper, and fell at his feet, and besought him, and said unto him, If thou wilt, thou art able to cleanse me. And Jesus had mercy upon him, and stretched forth his hand, and touched him, and said, I will cleanse(3) thee. And immediately his leprosy departed from him, and he was cleansed. And he sternly charged him, and sent him out, Arabic, and said unto him, See that thou tell not any man: but go and shew thy- p. 85 self to the priests, and offer an offering for thy cleansing as Moses com- 6 manded for their testimony. But he, when he went out, began to publish much, and spread abroad the news, so that Jesus could not enter into any of the cities openly, for the extent to which the report of him spread, but he remained without in a des- 7 ert place. And much people came unto him from one place and another,(4) to hear 8 his word, and that they might be healed of their pains. And he used to withdraw from them into the desert, and pray.

9 And after that, was the feast of the Jews; and Jesus went up to Jerusalem. And there was in Jerusalem a place prepared for bathing,(5) which was called in 11 Hebrew the House of Mercy, having five porches. And there were laid in them much people of the sick, and blind, and lame, and paralysed, waiting for the moving of the water. And the angel from time to time went down into the place of bathing,(5) and moved the water; and the first that went down after the moving of 13 the water, every pain that he had was healed. And a man was there who had a 14 disease for thirty-eight years. And Jesus saw this man laid, and knew(6) that he had 15 been thus a long time; and he said unto him, Wouldest thou be made whole? That diseased one answered and said, Yea, my Lord, I have no man, when the water moveth, to put me into the bathing-place; but when I come, another goeth down before 16, 17 me. Jesus said unto him, Rise, take thy bed, and walk. And immediately that man was healed; and he rose, and carried his bed, and walked.

18 And that day was a sabbath. And when the Jews saw that healed one, they(7) said 19 unto him, It is a sabbath: thou hast no authority to carry thy bed. And he answered and said unto them, He that made me whole, the same said unto me, Take thy bed, 20 Arabic, and walk. They asked him therefore, Who is this man that said unto thee, 21 p. 86 Take thy bed, and walk? But he that was healed knew not who it was; for Jesus had removed from that place to another, because of the press of the great mul- 22 titude which was in that place. And after two days Jesus happened upon him in the temple, and said unto him, Behold, thou art whole: sin not again, lest there come upon

22 23 thee what is worse than the first. And that man went, and said to the Jews that it 24 was Jesus that had healed him. And because of that the Jews persecuted Jesus and 25 sought to kill him, because he was doing this on the sabbath. And Jesus said unto 26 them, My Father worketh until now, and I also work. And because of this especially the Jews sought to kill him, not because he profaned the sabbath only; but for his saying also that God was his Father, and his making himself equal with God. 27 Jesus answered and said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, The Son cannot do anything of himself, but what be seeth the Father do; what the Father doeth, 28 that the Son also doeth like him. The Father loveth his Son, and everything that he doeth he sheweth him: and more than these works will he shew him, that ye 29 may marvel. And as the Father raiseth the dead and giveth them life, so the Son 30 also giveth life to whomsoever he will. And the Father judgeth no man, but hath 31 given all judgement unto the Son; that every man may honour the Son, as he honoureth the Father. And he that honoureth not the Son honoureth not the Father which 32 sent him. Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whosoever heareth my word, and believeth in him that sent me, hath eternal. life, and cometh not into judgement, but passeth from 33 Arabic. death unto life. Verily, verily, I say unto you, An hour shall come, and now p. 87 is also, when the dead shall hear the voice of the Son of God; and those 34 which hear shall live. And as the Father hath life in himself,(1) likewise he gave to 35 the Son also that he might have life in himself,(1) and authority to do judgement also, 36 because(2) he is the Son of man. Marvel not then at that: I mean the coming of the hour when all that are in the tombs shall hear his voice, and shall come forth: 37 those that have done good, to the resurrection of life; and those that have done evil deeds, to the resurrection of judgement.

38 I am not able of myself to do anything; but as I hear, I judge: and my judge- 39 ment is just; I seek not my own will, but the will of him that sent me. I(3) bear wit- 40 ness of myself, and so a my witness is not true. It is another that beareth witness 41 of me; and I know that the witness which he beareth of me is true. Ye have sent 42 unto John, and he hath borne witness of the truth. But not from man do I seek 43 witness; but I say that ye may live.(4) That(5) was a lamp which shineth and 44 giveth light: and ye were pleased to glory now(6) in his light. But I have witness greater than that of John: the works which my Father hath given me to accomplish, 45 those works which I do, bear witness of me, that the Father hath sent me. And the Father which sent me, he hath borne witness of me. Ye have neither heard his 46 voice at any time, nor seen his appearance. And his word abideth not in you; because 47 in him whom he hath sent ye do not believe. Search the scriptures, in which ye rejoice(7) 48 that ye have eternal life; and they bear witness of me; and ye do not wish to come to 49. 50 Arabic. me, that ye may have eternal life. I seek not praise of men. But I know 51 p. 88 you, that the love of God is not in you. I am come in the name of my Father, and ye received me not; but if another come in his own name, that one will 52 ye receive. And how can ye believe, while ye receive praise one from another, and 53 praise from God, the One, ye seek not? Can it be that ye think that I will accuse you before the Father? Ye have one that accuseth you, Moses, in whom ye have 54 rejoiced.(7) If ye believed Moses, ye would believe me also; Moses wrote of me. 55 And if ye believed not his writings, how shall ye believe my words?

23 1 And Jesus departed thence, and came to the side of the sea of Galilee, and went up into the mountain, and sat there. And there came unto him great multitudes, having with them lame, and blind, and dumb, and maimed, and many others, and they cast them at the feet of Jesus: for they had seen all the signs which he did in Jerusalem, when they were gathered at the feast. And he healed them all. And

Jo. 4, 45b.

Mt. 15, 30b. Mt. 15, 31.

23 those multitudes marvelled when they saw dumb men speak, and maimed men healed, and lame men walk, and blind men see; and they praised the God of Israel.

5 And Jesus called his disciples, and said unto them, I have compassion on this multitude, because of their continuing with me three days, having nothing to eat; and to send them away fasting I am not willing, lest they faint in the way, some of them hay- 6 Arabic, ing come from far. His disciples said unto him, Whence have we in the des- 7 p. 89 ert bread wherewith to satisfy all this multitude? Jesus said unto them, How 8 many loaves have ye? They said unto him, Seven, and a few small fishes. And he 9 commanded the multitudes to sit down upon the ground; and he took those seven loaves and the fish, and blessed, and brake, and gave to his disciples to set before 10 them; and the disciples set before the multitudes. And they all ate, and were satisfied: and they took that which remained over of the fragments, seven basketfuls. 11 And the people that ate were four thousand men, besides the women and children. 12 And when the multitudes departed, he went up into the boat, and came to the borders of Magada.(1)

13 And the Pharisees and Sadducees came to him, and began to seek a discussion with him. And they asked him to shew them a sign from heaven, tempting him. 14 And Jesus sighed within himself, and said, What sign seeketh this evil and adulterous generation? It seeketh a sign, and it shall not be given a sign, except the sign 15 of Jonah the prophet. Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not be given a 16 sign. And he left(2) them, and went up into the boat, and went away to that side.

17 And his disciples forgot to take with them bread, and there was not with them 18 in the boat, not even(3) one loaf. And Jesus charged them, and said, Take heed, and guard yourselves from the leaven of the Pharisees and Sadducees, and from the 19 leaven of Herod. And they reflected within themselves that they had taken with them 20 no bread. And Jesus knew, and said unto them, Why(4) think ye within yourselves, O ye of little faith, and are anxious, because ye have no bread? until now do ye not per- 21 ceive, neither understand? is your heart yet hard? And have ye eyes, and yet see not? 22 Arabic, and have ye ears, and yet hear not? and do ye not remember when I brake p. 90 those five loaves for five thousand? and how many baskets full of broken 23 pieces took ye(5) up? They said, Twelve. He said unto them, And the seven also for four thousand: how many baskets full of broken pieces took ye(5) up? They 24 said, Seven. He said unto them, How have ye not understood thai I spake not to you because of(6) the bread, but that ye should beware of the leaven of the Pharisees 25 and Sadducees? Then they understood that he spake, not that they should beware of the leaven of the bread, but of the doctrine of the Pharisees and Sadducees, which he called leaven.

26 And after that, he came to Bethsaida. And they brought to him a certain(7) blind 27 man, and besought him that he would touch him. And he took the hand of that blind man, and led him out without the village, and spat in his eyes, and laid his 28 hand on him,(8) and asked him, What seest thou? And that blind man looked in- 29 tently, and said unto him, I see men as trees walking. And he placed his hand 30 again on his eyes; and they were restored,(9) and he saw everything clearly. And he sent him to his house, and said, Do not enter even into the village, nor tell any man in the village.

31 And Jesus went forth, and his disciples, to the villages of Caesarea Philippi. 32 And while he was going in the way, and his disciples alone,(10) he asked his disciples, 33 and said, What do men say of me that I am, the Son of man?(11) They said unto him, Some say, John the Baptist; and others, Elijah; and others, Jeremiah, or one of the 34, 35 prophets. He said unto them, And ye, what say ye that I am? Simon Cephas an- 36 Arabic. swered and said, Thou art the Messiah, the Son of the living God. Jesus an- p. 91 swered and said unto him, Blessed art thou, Simon son of Jonah: flesh and 37 blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but my Father which is in heaven. And I say unto

To thee will I give the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven; and 39 whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven. And he sternly charged his disciples, and warned them that they should not tell any man concern- 40 ing him, that he was the Messiah. And henceforth began Jesus to shew to his dis- 41 ciples that he was determined(2) to go to Jerusalem, and suffer much, and be rejected of the elders, and of the chief priests, and of the scribes, and be killed, and on the 42 third day rise. And he was speaking(3) plainly. And Simon Cephas, as one grieved 43 for him, said, Far be thou, my Lord, from that. And he turned, and looked upon 44 his disciples, and rebuked Simon, and said, Get thee behind me, Satan: for thou art a stumblingblock unto me: for thou thinkest not of what pertains to God, but of what pertains to men.

45 And Jesus called the multitudes with his disciples, and said unto them, Whosoever would come after me, let him deny himself, and take his cross every day, and 46 come after me. And whosoever would save his life shall lose it; and whosoever 47 loseth his life for my sake, and for the sake of my gospel, shall save it. What shall 48 a man profit, if he gain all the world, and destroy(4) his own life,(5) or lose it? or what 49 Arabic, will a man give in ransom for his life?(5) Whosoever shall deny me and my p. 92 sayings in this sinful and adulterous generation, the Son of man also will 50 deny him, when he cometh in the glory of his Father with his holy angels. For the Son of man is about to(6) come in the glory of his Father with his holy angels; and then shall he reward each man according to his works.

24 1 And he said unto them, Verily I say unto you, There be here now some standing that shall not taste death, until they see the kingdom of God come(7) with strength, and the Son of man who cometh in his kingdom.

2 And after six days Jesus took Simon Cephas, and James, and John his brother, 3 and brought them up into a high mountain, the three of them only. And while they 4 were praying, Jesus changed, and became after the fashion of another person; and his face shone like the sun, and his raiment was very white like the snow, and as 5 the light of lightning, so that nothing on earth can whiten(8) like it. And there ap- 6 peared unto him Moses and Elijah talking to Jesus. And they thought that the time 7 of his decease which was to be accomplished at Jerusalem was come. And Simon and those that were with him were heavy in the drowsiness of steep; and with effort they roused themselves, and saw his glory, and those two men that were standing with him. 8 Arabic. And when they began to depart from him, Simon said unto Jesus, My 9 p. 93 Master, it is good for us to be here: and if thou wilt, we will make here three tabernacles; one for thee, and one for Moses, and one for Elijah; not know- 10 ing what he said, because of the fear which took possession of them. And while he 11 was yet saying that, a bright cloud overshadowed them. And when they saw Moses 12 and Elijah that they had entered into that cloud, they feared again. And a voice was heard out of the cloud, saying, This is my beloved Son, whom I have chosen; 13 hear ye therefore him. And when this voice was heard, Jesus was found alone. 14 And the disciples, when they heard the voice, fell on their faces from the fear which 15 took hold of them. And Jesus came and touched them and said, Arise, be not 16 afraid. And they lifted up their eyes, and saw Jesus as he was.

17 And when they went down from the mountain, Jesus charged them, and said unto them, Tell not what ye have seen to any man, until the Son of man rise from 18 among the dead. And they kept the word within themselves, and told no man in

24 19 those days what they had seen. And they reflected among themselves, What is this 20 word which he spake unto us, I, when I am risen from among the dead? And his disciples asked him, and said, What is that which the scribes say, then, that Elijah 21 must first come? He said unto them, Elijah cometh first to set in order everything, Arabic, and as it was written of the Son of man, that he should suffer many things, 22 p. 94 and be rejected. But I say unto you, that Elijah is come, and they knew him not, and have done unto him whatsoever they desired, as it was written of him. 23, 24 In like manner the Son of man is to suffer of them. Then understood the disciples that he spake unto them concerning John the Baptist.

25 And on that day whereon they came down from the mountain, there met him a multitude of many people standing with his disciples, and the scribes were discuss- 26 ing with them. And the people, when they saw Jesus, were perplexed,(1) and in the 27 midst of their joy hastened(2) and saluted him. And on that day came certain of the Pharisees, and said unto him, Get thee out, and go hence; for Herod seeketh 28 to kill thee. Jesus said unto them, Go ye and say to this fox, Behold, I am casting out demons, and I heal to-day and to-morrow, and on the third day I am perfected. 29 Nevertheless I must be watchful a to-day and to-morrow, and on the last day I shall depart; for it cannot be that a prophet perish outside of Jerusalem.

30 And after that, there came to him a man from that multitude, and fell upon his knees, and said unto him, I beseech thee, my Lord, look upon my son; he is my 31 only child: and the spirit cometh upon him suddenly. A lunacy(4) hath come upon 32 him, and he meeteth with evils. And when it cometh upon him, it beateth him about;(5) 33 and he foameth, and gnasheth his teeth, and wasteth;(6) and many times it hath thrown him into the water and into the fire to destroy him, and it hardly leaveth him after 34 Arabic. bruising him. And I brought him near to thy disciples, and they could 35 P. 95 not heal him. Jesus answered and said, O faithless and perverse generation, till when shall I be with you? and till when shall I bear with you? bring thy son 36 hither. And he brought him unto him: and when the spirit saw him, immediately 37 it beat him about; and he fell upon the ground, and was raging and foaming. And Jesus asked his father, How long is the time during which he hath been thus? He 38 said unto him, From his youth until now. But, my Lord, help me wherein thou 39 canst, and have mercy upon me. Jesus said unto him, If thou canst believe! All 40 things are possible to him that believeth. And immediately the father of the child 41 cried out, weeping, and said, I believe, my Lord; help my lack of faith. And when Jesus saw the hastening of the people, and their coming at the sound, he rebuked that unclean spirit, and said to it, Thou dumb(7) spirit that speakest not, I command 42 thee,(8) come out of him, and enter not again into him. And that spirit, devil,(9) cried out much, and bruised him, and came out; and that child fell as one dead, and 43 many thought that he had died. But Jesus took him by his hand, and raised him 44 up, and gave him to his father; and that child was healed from that hour. And the people all marvelled at the greatness of God.

45 And when Jesus entered into the house, his disciples came, and asked him 46 privately,(10) and said unto him, Why were we not able to heal him? Jesus said unto Arabic. them, Because of your unbelief. Verily I say unto you, If ye have faith p. 96 as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say to this mountain, Remove hence; 47 and it shall remove; and nothing shall overcome you. But it is impossible to cast out this kind by anything except by fasting and prayer.

48 And when he went forth thence, they passed through Galilee: and he would not 49 that any man should know it.(11) And he taught his disciples, and said unto them, 50 Keep ye these sayings in your ears and your hearts: for the Son of man is to be

25 1 And in that day this thought presented itself to his disciples, and they said, which 2 haply should be the greatest among them.(1) And when they came to Capernaum, and entered into the house, Jesus said unto them, What were ye considering in the 3 way among yourselves? And they were silent because they had considered that matter.

4 And when Simon went forth without, those that received two dirhams for the tribute came to Cephas, and said unto him, Doth your master not give his two 5 dirhams? He said unto them, Yea. And when Cephas entered the house, Jesus anticipated him, and said unto him, What thinkest thou, Simon? the kings of the earth, from whom do they receive custom and tribute? from their sons, or from 6 Arabic. strangers? Simon said unto him, From strangers. Jesus said unto him, p. 97 Children then are free. Simon said unto him, Yea. Jesus said unto him, 7 Give thou also unto them, like the stranger. But, lest it trouble them, go thou to the sea, and cast a hook; and the first fish that cometh up, open its mouth, and thou shall find a staler: take therefore that, and give for me and thee.

8 And in that hour came the disciples to Jesus, and said unto him, Who, thinkest 9 thou, is greater in the kingdom of heaven? And Jesus knew the thought of their heart, and called a(2) child, and set him in the midst, and took him in his arms, and 10 said unto them, Verily I say unto you, If ye do not return, and become as children, 11 ye shall not enter the kingdom of heaven. Every one that shall receive in my name such as this child hath received me: and whosoever receiveth me receiveth 12 not me, but him that sent me. And he who is little in your company,(3) the same 13 shall be great. But whosoever shall injure one of these little ones that believe in me, it were better for him that a great millstone(4) should be hanged about his neck, and he should be drowned in the depths of the sea.

14 John answered and said, Our Master, we saw one casting out devils in thy name; 15 and we prevented him, because he followed not thee with us. Jesus said unto them, Prevent him not; for no man doeth powers in my name, and can hasten to speak evil 16, 17 of me. Every one who is not in opposition to you is with you. Woe unto the world Arabic. because of trials!(5) but woe unto that man by whose hand the trials come 18 p. 98 If thy hand or thy foot injure thee, cut it off, and cast it from thee; for it is better for thee to enter into life being halt or maimed, and not that thou shouldest have two hands or two feet, and fall into the hell of fire that burneth(6) for ever; 19, 20 where their worm dieth not, and their fire is not quenched. And if thine eye seduce(7) 21 thee, pluck it out, and cast it from thee; for it is better for thee to enter the kingdom of God with one eye, than that thou shouldest have two eyes, and fall into the 22, 23 fire of Gehenna; where their worm dieth not, and their fire is not quenched. Every 24 one shall be salted with fire, and every sacrifice shall be salted with salt. How good 25 is salt! but if the salt also be tasteless, wherewith shall it be salted? It is fit neither for the land nor for dung, but they cast it out. He that hath ears to hear, let him 26 hear. Have ye salt in yourselves. and be in peace one with another.

27 And he arose from thence, and came to the borders of Judaea beyond Jordan: and there went unto him thither great multitudes, and he healed them; and he taught 28 them also, according to his custom. And the Pharisees came unto him, tempting 29 him, and asking him, Is it lawful for a man to put away his wife? He said, What 30 did Moses command you? They said, Moses made it allowable for us, saying, Who- 31 soever will, let him write a writing of divorcement, and put away his wife. Jesus

25 answered and said unto them, Have ye not read, He that made them from the beginning 32 made them male and female, and said, For this reason shall the man leave his father Arabic, and his mother, and cleave to his wife; and they both shall be one body? 33 p. 99 So then they are not twain, but one body; the thing, then, which God hath 34 joined together, let no man put asunder. And those Pharisees said unto him, Why did Moses consent(1) that a man should give a writing of divorcement and put her away? 35 Jesus said unto them, Moses because of the hardness of your hearts gave you leave 36 to divorce your wives; but in the beginning it was not so. I say unto you, Whosoever putteth away(2) his wife without fornication, and marrieth another, hath exposed 37 her to adultery. And his disciples, when he entered the house, asked him again 38 about that. And he said unto them, Every one who putteth away his wife, and 39 marrieth another, hath exposed her to adultery. And any woman that leaveth her husband, and becometh another's, hath committed adultery. And whosoever mar- 40 rieth her that is divorced hath committed adultery. And his disciples said unto him, If there be between the man and the woman such a case(3) as this, it is not good for 41 a man to marry. He said unto them, Not every man can endure this saying, except 42 him to whom it is given. There are eunuchs which from their mother's womb(4) were born so; and there are eunuchs which through men became eunuchs; and there are eunuchs which made themselves eunuchs for the sake of the kingdom of heaven. He that is able to be content, let him be content.

43 Then they brought to him children, that he should lay his hand upon them, and 44 pray: and his disciples were rebuking those that were bringing them. And Jesus saw, and it was distressing to him; and he said unto them, Suffer the children to Arabic. come unto me, and prevent them not; for those that are like these have 45 p. 100 the kingdom of God. Verily I say unto you, Whosoever receiveth not the 46 kingdom of God as this child, shall not enter it. And he took them in his arms, and laid his hand upon them, and blessed them.

26 1, 2 And there came unto him publicans and sinners to hear his word. And the scribes and the Pharisees murmured, and said, This man receiveth sinners, and 3 eateth with them. And Jesus, when he beheld their murmuring, spake unto them 4 this parable: What man of you, having an hundred sheep, if one of them were lost, would not leave the ninety-nine in the wilderness, and go and seek the straying one 5 till he found it? Verily I say unto you, When he findeth it, he will rejoice over it 6 more than over the ninety-nine that went not astray; and bear it on his shoulders, and bring it to his house, and call his friends and neighbours, and say unto them, 7 Rejoice with me, since I have found my straying sheep. So your Father which is in heaven willeth(5) not that one of these little ones that have strayed should perish, 8 and he seeketh for them repentance. I say unto you, Thus there shall be rejoicing in heaven over one sinner that repenteth, more than over ninety-nine righteous persons that do not need repentance.

9 And what woman having ten drachmas would lose one of them, and not light a 10 lamp, and sweep the house, and seek it with care till she found it; and when she found it, call her friends and neighbours, and say unto them, Rejoice with me, as I 11 have found my drachma that was lost? I say unto you, Thus there shall be joy Arabic. before the angels of God over the one sinner that repenteth, more than p. 101 over the ninety-nine righteous persons that do not need repentance.

12, 13 And Jesus spoke unto them also another parable: A man had two sons: and the younger son said unto him, My father, give me my portion that belongeth to 14 me of thy goods. And he divided between them his property. And after a few days the younger son gathered everything that belonged to him, and went into a 15 far country, and there squandered his property by living prodigally. And when he

26 had exhausted everything he had, there occurred a great dearth in that country. 16 And when he was in want, he went and joined himself to one of the people of a city 17 of that country; and that man sent him into the field(1) to feed the swine. And he used to long to fill his belly with the carob that those swine were eating: and no man 18 gave him. And when he returned unto himself, he said, How many hired servants now in my father's house have bread enough and to spare, while I here perish with 19 hunger! I will arise and go to my father's house, and say unto him, My father, I 20 have sinned in heaven and before thee, and am not worthy now to be called thy 21 son: make me as one of thy hired servants. And he arose, and came to his father. But his father saw him while he was at a distance, and was moved with compassion 22 for him, and ran,(2) and fell on his breast,(3) and kissed him. And his son said unto him, My father, I have sinned in heaven and before thee, and am not worthy to be 23 called thy son. His father said unto his servants, Bring forth a stately robe, and put 24 it on him; and put a ring on his hand, and put on him shoes on his feet: and bring and 25 slay a fatted ox, that we may eat and make merry: for this my son was dead, and is 26 Arabic. alive; and was lost, and is found. And they began to be merry.(4) Now his p. 102 eider son was in the field; and when he came and drew near to the house, 27 he heard the sound of many singing.(5) And he called one of the lads, and asked him 28 what this was. He said unto him, Thy brother hath arrived; and thy father hath 29 slain a fatted ox, since he hath received him safe and sound.(6) And he was angry, 30 and would not enter; so his father went out, and besought him to enter. And he said to his father, How many years do I serve thee in bondage, and I never transgressed a commandment of thine; and thou hast never given me a kid, that I might 31 make merry with my friends? but this thy son, when he had squandered thy 32 property with harlots, and come, thou hast slain for him a fatted ox. His father said unto him, My son, thou art at all times with me, and everything I have is 33 thine. It behoveth thee to rejoice and make merry, since this thy brother was dead, and is alive; and was lost, and is found.

34 And he spake a parable unto his disciples: There was a rich man, and he had 35 a steward; and he was accused to him that he had squandered his property. So his lord called him, and said unto him, What is this that I hear regarding thee? Give me the account of thy stewardship; for it is now impossible that thou shouldest 36 be a steward for me. The steward said within himself, What shall I do, seeing that my lord taketh from me the stewardship? To dig I am not able; and to beg(7) I 37 am ashamed. I know what I will do, that, when I go out of the stewardship, they 38 may receive me into their houses. And he called one after another of his lord's 39 debtors, and said to the first, How much owest thou my lord? He said unto him, An hundred portions(8) of oil. He said unto him, Take thy writing, and sit down, and write 40 quickly fifty portions.(8) And he said to the next, And thou, how much owest thou my lord? He said unto him, An hundred cors of wheat. He said unto him, Take 41 Arabic, thy writing, and sit down, and write eighty cors. And our(9) lord com- p. 103 mended the sinful steward(10) because he had done a wise deed; for the chil- 42 dren of this world are wiser than the children of the light in this their age. And I also say unto you, Make unto yourselves friends with the wealth of this unrighteousness;(11) 43 so that, when it is exhausted, they may receive you into their tents for ever. He who is faithful in(12) a little is faithful also in much: and he who is unrighteous in a 44 little is unrighteous also in much. If then in the wealth of unrighteousness ye were 45 not trustworthy, who will intrust you with the truth?(13) If ye are not found faithful in what does not belong to you, who will give you what belongeth to you?

27 Therefore the kingdom of heaven is like a certain king, who would make a reckoning with his servants. And when he began to make it, they brought to him

Mt. 18, 23. Mt. 18, 24.

27 3 one who owed him ten talents.(1) And because he had not wherewith to pay, his lord ordered that he should be sold, he, and his wife, and children, and all that he 4 had, and payment be made. So that servant fell down and worshipped him, and said unto him, My lord, have patience with me, and I shall pay thee everything. 5 And the lord of that servant had compassion, and released him, and forgave him his 6 debt. And that servant went out, and found one of his fellow-servants, who owed him Arabic. a hundred pence;(2) and he took him, and dealt severely with him, and said 7 p. 104 unto him, Give me what thou owest. Sothe fellow-servant fell down at his 8 feet, and besought him, and said, Grant me respite, and I will pay thee. And he would not; but took him, and cast him into prison, till he should give him his debt. 9 And when their fellow-servants saw what happened, it distressed them much; and 10 they came and told their lord of all that had taken place. Then his lord called him, and said unto him, Thou wicked servant, all that debt I forgave thee, because 11 thou besoughtest me: was it not then incumbent on thee also to have mercy on thy 12 fellow-servant, as I had mercy on thee?(3) And his lord became wroth, and delivered 13 him to the scourgers, till he should pay all that he owed. So shall my Father which is in heaven do unto you, if one forgive not his brother his wrong conduct(4) from 14 his heart. Take heed within(5) yourselves: if thy brother sin, rebuke him; and if he 15 repent, forgive him. And if he act wrongly towards thee seven times in a day, and on that day return seven times unto thee, and say, I repent towards thee; forgive him. 16 And if thy brother act wrongly towards thee, go and reprove him between thee and 17 him alone: if he hear thee, thou hast gained thy brother. But if he hear thee not, take with thee one or two, and so(6) at the mouth of two or three every saying shall 18 be established. And if he listen not to these also, tell the congregation;(7) and if he listen not even to the congregation, let him be unto thee as a publican and a Gen- 19 tile.(8) Verily I say unto you, All that ye bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: 20 and what ye loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven. I say unto you also, If two of you agree on earth to ask, everything shall(9) be granted them from my Father 21 Arabic, which is in heaven. For where two or three are gathered in my name, there 22 p. 105 am l amongst them. Then Cephas drew near to him, and said unto him, My Lord, how many times, if my brother act wrongly towards me, should I forgive him? 23 until seven times? Jesus said unto him, I say not unto thee, Until seven; but, Until sev-24 enty times seven, seven.(10) And the servant that knoweth his lord's will, and maketh not 25 ready for him according to his will, shall meet with much punishment; but he that knoweth not, and doeth something for which he meriteth punishment, shall meet with slight punishment. Every one to whom much hath been given, much shall be asked of him; and he that hath had much committed to him, much shall be 26 required at his hand. I came to cast fire upon the earth; and I would that it had 27 been kindled already.(11) And I have a baptism to be baptized with, and greatly am 28 I straitened till it be accomplished. See that ye despise not(12) one of these little ones that believe in me. Verily I say unto you, Their angels at all times see the 29 face of my Father which is in heaven. The Son of man came to save the thing which was lost.

30 And after that, Jesus walked in Galilee; and he did not like to walk in Judaea, 31 because the Jews sought to kill him. And there came people who told him of 32 the Galilaeans, those whose blood Pilate had mingled with their sacrifices. Jesus answered and said unto them, Do ye imagine that those Galilaeans were sinners 33 more than all the Galilaeans, so that this thing has come upon them? Nay. Verily I say unto you now,(13) that ye shall all also, if ye repent not, likewise perish. 34 Or perchance those eighteen on whom the palace fell in Siloam, and slew them, do ye imagine that they were to be condemned(14) more than all the people that dwell 35 Arabic, in Jerusalem? Nay. Verily I say unto you, If ye do not all repent, ye p. 106 shall perish like them.

36 And he spake unto them this parable: A man had a fig tree planted in his vine-

27 37 yard; and he came and sought fruit thereon, and found none. So he said to the husbandman, Lo, three years do I come and seek fruit on this fig tree, and find 38 none: cut it down; why doth it render the ground unoccupied? The husbandman said unto him, My lord, leave it this year also, that I may dig about it, and dung 39 it; then if it bear fruit--! and if not, then cut it down in the coming year.

40 And when Jesus was teaching on the sabbath day in one of the synagogues, 41 there was there a woman that had a spirit of disease eighteen years; and she was 42 bowed down, and could not straighten herself at all. And Jesus saw her, and called 43 her, and said unto her, Woman, be loosed from thy disease. And he put his hand 44 upon her; and immediately she was straightened, and praised God. And the chief(1) of the synagogue answered with anger, because Jesus had healed on a sabbath, and said unto the multitudes, There are six days in which work ought to be done; 45 come in them and be healed, and not on the sabbath day. But Jesus answered and said unto him, Ye hypocrites, doth not each of you on the sabbath day loose 46 his ox or his ass from the manger, and go and water it? Ought not this woman, who is a daughter of Abraham, and whom the devil(2) hath bound eighteen years, 47 to be loosed from this bond on the sabbath day? And when he said this, they were all put to shame, those standing, who were opposing him:(3) and all the people were pleased with all the wonders that proceeded from his hand.

SECTION XXVIII.(4)

28 1, 2 Arabic. And at that time the feast of tabernacles of the Jews drew near. So the p. 107 brethren of Jesus said unto him, Remove now hence, and go to Judaea, that 3 thy disciples may see the deeds that thou doest. For no man doeth a thing secretly 4 and wisheth to be apparent. If thou doest this, shew thyself to the world. For 5 up to this time not even the brethren of Jesus believed on him. Jesus said unto them, My time till now has not arrived; but as for you, your time is alway ready. 6 It is not possible for the world to hate you; but me it hateth, for I bear witness 7 against it, that its deeds are evil. As for you, go ye up unto this feast: but I go 8 not up now to this feast; for my time has not yet been completed. He said this, and remained behind in Galilee.

9 But when his brethren went up unto the feast, he journeyed from Galilee, and to came to the borders of Judaea, to the country beyond Jordan; and there came after 11 him great multitudes, and he healed them all there. And he went out, and proceeded 12 to the feast, not openly, but as one that conceals himself. And the Jews sought him 13 at the feast, and said, In what place is this man? And there occurred much murmuring there in the great multitude that came to the feast, on his account. For 14 some said, He is good: and others said, Nay, but he leadeth the people astray. But no man spake of him openly for fear of the Jews.

15 Arabic. But when the days of the feast of tabernacles were half over, Jesus went 16 p. 108 up to the temple, and taught. And the Jews wondered, and said, How doth 17 this man know writing,(5) seeing he hath not learned? Jesus answered and said, My doc- 18 trine(6) is not mine, but his that sent me. Whoever wisheth to do his will understandeth my doctrine? whether it be from God, or whether I speak of mine own accord. 19 Whosoever speaketh of his own accord seeketh praise for himself; but whosoever seeketh praise for him that sent him, he is true, and unrighteousness in his heart 20 there is none. Did not Moses give you the law, and no man of you keepeth the 21 law? Why seek ye to kill me? The multitude answered and said unto him, Thou 22 hast demons:(7) who seeketh to kill thee? Jesus answered and said unto them, I did 23 one deed, and ye all marvel because of this. Moses hath given you circumcision (not because it is from Moses, but it is from the fathers); and ye on the sabbath

28 24 circumcise a man. And if a man is circumcised on the sabbath day, that the law of Moses may not be broken; are ye angry at me, because I healed on the sabbath 25 day the whole man? Judge not with hypocrisy, but judge righteous judgement.

26 And some people from Jerusalem said, Is not this he whom they seek to slay? 27 And lo, he discourseth with them openly, and they say nothing unto him. Think 28 you that our eiders have learned that this is the Messiah indeed? But this man is(1) known whence he is; and the Messiah, when he cometh, no man knoweth whence 29 he is. So Jesus lifted up his voice as he taught in the temple, and said, Ye both know me, and know whence I am; and of my own accord am I not come, but he 30 Arabic. that sent me is true, he whom ye know not: but I know him; for I am 31 p. 109 from him, and he sent me. And they sought to seize him: and no man 32 laid a hand on him, because his hour had not yet come. But many of the multitude believed on him; and they said, The Messiah, when he cometh, can it be that he will do more than these signs that this man doeth?

33 And a man of that multitude said unto our Lord, Teacher, say to my brother 34 that he divide with me the inheritance. Jesus said unto him, Man, who is it that 35 appointed me over you as a judge and divider? And he said unto his disciples, Take heed within yourselves of all inordinate desire; for it is not in abundance of 36 possessions that life shall be. And he gave them this parable: The ground of a 37 rich man brought forth abundant produce: and he pondered within himself, and 38 said, What shall I do, since I have no place to store my produce? And he said, I will do this: I will pull down the buildings of my barns, and build them, and make 39 them greater; and store there all my wheat and my goods. And I will say to my soul, Soul, thou hast much goods laid by for many years; take thine ease, eat, 30 drink, enjoy thyself. God said unto him, O than of little intelligence, this night shall thy soul be taken from thee; and this that thou hast prepared, whose shall it 41 be? So is he that layeth up treasures for himself, and is not rich in God.

42 And while Jesus was going in the way, there came near to him a young man(2) of the rulers,(3) and fell on his knees, and asked him, and said, Good Teacher, what is 43 it that I must do that I may have eternal life? Jesus said unto him, Why callest thou 44 me good, while there is none good but the one, even God?(4) Thou knowest the com- 45 mandments.(5) If thou wouldest enter into life, keep the commandments.(5) The young Arabic. man said unto him, Which of the commandments?(6) Jesus said unto him, 46 p. 110 Thou shalt not commit adultery, Thou shalt not steal, Thou shalt not kill, Thou shalt not bear false witness, Thou shall not do injury, Honour thy father 47 and thy mother: and, Love thy neighbour as thyself. That young man said unto 48 him, All these have I kept from my youth: what then is it that I lack? And Jesus 49 looked intently at him, and loved him, and said unto him, If thou wouldest be perfect, what thou lackest is one thing:(7) go away and sell everything that thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and take thy 50 cross, and follow me. And that young man frowned at this word, and went away 51 feeling sad; for he was very rich. And when Jesus saw his sadness, he looked towards his disciples, and said unto them, How hard it is for them that have possessions to enter the kingdom of God!

And I say unto you also, that it is easier for a camel to enter the eye of 3 a needle, than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God. And the disciples were wondering at these sayings. And Jesus answered and said unto them again, My children, how hard it is for those that rely on their possessions to enter the 4 kingdom of God! And those that were listening wondered more, and said amongst 5 themselves, being agitated,(8) Who, thinkest thou, can be saved? And Jesus looked at

them intently, and said unto them, With men this is not possible, but with God it is. 6 Arabic, it is possible for God to do everything. Simon Cephas said unto him, Lo, we p. 111 have left everything, and followed thee; what is it, thinkest thou, that we 7 shall have? Jesus said unto them, Verily I say unto you, Ye that have followed me, in the new world, when the Son of man shall sit on the throne of his glory, ye also 8 shall sit on twelve thrones, and shall judge the twelve tribes of Israel. Verily I say unto you, No man leaveth houses, or brothers, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or kinsfolk, or lands, because of the kingdom of God, or for my 9 sake, and the sake of my gospel, who shall not obtain(1) many times as much in this 10 time, and in the world to come inherit eternal life: and now in this time, houses, and brothers, and sisters, and mothers, and children, and lands, with persecution; 11 and in the world to come everlasting life. Many that are first shall be last,(2) and that are last shall be first.

12 And when the Pharisees heard all this, because of their love for wealth they 13 scoffed at him. And Jesus knew what was in their hearts, and said unto them, Ye are they that justify yourselves before men; while God knows your hearts: the thing that is lofty with men is base before God.

14 And he began to say, A certain man was rich, and wore silk and purple, and en- 15 joyed himself every day in splendour: and there was a poor man named Lazarus, and 16 he was cast down at the door of the rich man, afflicted with sores, and he longed to fill Arabic, his belly with the crumbs that fell from the table of that rich man; yea, 17 p. 112 even(3) the dogs used to come and lick his sores. And it happened that that poor man died, and the angels conveyed him into the bosom of Abraham: and the 18 rich man also died, and was buried. And while he was being tormented in Hades, 19 he lifted up his eyes from afar, and saw Abraham with(4) Lazarus in his bosom. And he called with a loud voice, and said, My father Abraham, have mercy upon me, and send Lazarus to wet the tip of his finger with water, and moisten my tongue 20 for me; for, behold, I am burned in this flame. Abraham said unto him, My son, remember that thou receivedst thy good things in thy life, and Lazarus his afflictions: but now, behold, he is at rest here, and thou art tormented. And in addition to all this, there is between us and you a great abyss placed, so that they that would cross unto you from hence cannot, nor yet from thence do they cross unto 22 us. He said unto him, Then I beseech thee, my father, to send him to my father's 23 house; for I have five brethren; let him go, that they also sin not,(5) and come to 24 the abode of this torment.(6) Abraham said unto him, They have Moses and the 25 prophets; let them hear them. He said unto him, Nay,(7) my father Abraham: but 26 let a man from the dead go unto them, and they will repent. Abraham said unto him, If they listen neither to Moses nor to the prophets, neither if a man from the dead rose would they believe him.

27 The kingdom of heaven is like a man that is a householder, which went out early 28 in the morning to hire labourers for his vineyard. And he agreed with the labourers on 29 one penny a day for each labourer, and he sent them into his vineyard. And he went 30 Arabic, out in three hours, and saw others standing in the market idle. He said p. 113 unto them, Go ye also into my vineyard, and what is right I will pay you. 31 And they went. And he went out also at the sixth and the ninth hour, and did like- 32 wise, and sent them. And about the eleventh hour he went out, and found others standing idle. He said unto them, Why are ye standing the whole day idle? 33 They said unto him, Because no one hath hired us. He said unto them, Go ye 34 also into the vineyard, and what is right ye shall receive. So when evening came, the lord of the vineyard said unto his steward, Call the labourers, and pay them 35 their wages; and begin with the later ones, and end with the former ones. And 36 those of eleven hours(8) came, and received each a penny. When therefore the first came, they supposed that they should receive something more; and they also 37 received each a penny. And when they received it, they spake angrily against the

He answered and said unto one of them, My friend, I do thee no wrong: was it not for a penny that 40 thou didst bargain with me? Take what is thine, and go thy way; for I wish to 41 give this last as I have given thee. Or am I not entitled to do with what is mine(1) 42 what I choose? Or is thine eye perchance evil, because I am good? Thus shall the last ones be first, and the first last. The called are many, and the chosen are few.

43 And when Jesus entered into the house of one of the chiefs of the Pharisees to eat bread on the sabbath day, and they were watching him to see what he would 44,45 do, and there was before him a man which had the dropsy, Jesus answered and 46 said unto the scribes and the Pharisees, Is it lawful on the sabbath to heal? But Arabic, they were silent. So he took him, and healed him, and sent him away. 47 p. 114 And he said unto them, Which of you shall have his son or his ox fall on the sabbath day into a well, and not lift him up straightway, and draw water for 48 him? And they were not able to answer him a word to that.

30 1 And he spake a parable unto those which were bidden there, because he saw 2 them choose the places that were in the highest part of the sitting room: When a man invites thee to a feast, do not go and sit at the head of the room; lest there 3 be there a man more honourable than thou, and he that invited you come and say unto thee, Give the place to this man: and thou be ashamed when thou risest and 4 takest(2) another place. But when thou art invited, go and sit last; so that when he that invited thee cometh, he may say unto thee, My friend, go up higher: and 5 thou shalt have praise before all that were invited with thee. For every one that exalteth himself shall be abased; and every one that abaseth himself shall be exalted.

6 And he said also to him that had invited him, When thou makest a feast a or a banquet,(3) do not invite thy friends, nor even thy brethren, nor thy kinsmen, nor thy 7 rich neighbours; lest haply they also invite thee, and thou have this reward. But when thou makest a feast, invite the poor, and those with withered hand, and the 8 lame, and the blind: and blessed art thou, since they have not the means to reward 9 thee; that thy reward may be at the rising of the righteous. And when one of them that were invited heard that, he said unto him, Blessed is he that shall eat bread in the kingdom of God.

10, 11 Jesus answered again in parables, and said, The kingdom of heaven hath been lik- Arabic, ened to(4) a certain king, which made a feast(5) for his son, and prepared a 12 p. 115 great banquet,(6) and invited many: and he sent his servants at the time of the feast to inform them that were invited, Everything is made ready for you; come. And 13 they would not come, but began all of them with one voice to make excuse. And the first said unto them, Say to him, I have bought a field, and I must needs go out 14 to see it: I pray thee to release(7) me, for I ask to be excused. And another said, I have bought five yoke of oxen, and I am going to examine them: I pray thee 15 to release me, for I ask to be excused. And another said, I have married a wife, 16 and therefore I cannot come. And the king sent also other servants, and said, Say to those that were invited, that my feast is ready, and my oxen and my fatlings are 17 slain, and everything is ready: come to the feast. But they made light of it, and 18 went, one to his field, and another to his merchandise: and the rest took his 19 servants, and entreated them shamefully, and killed them. And one of the servants 20 came, and informed his lord of what had happened. And when the king heard, he became angry, and sent his armies; and they destroyed those murderers, and 21 burned their cities. Then he said to his servants, The feast is prepared, but those 22 that were invited were not worthy. Go out quickly into the markets and into the

30 partings of the ways of the city, and bring in hither the poor, and those with pains, and the lame, and the blind. And the servants did as the king commanded them. 23 And they came, and said unto him, Our lord, we have done all that thou com- 24 mandedst us, and there is here still room. So the lord said unto his servants, Go out into the roads, and the ways, and the paths, and every one that ye find, invite 25 Arabic, to the feast, and constrain them to enter, till my house is(1) filled. I say unto p. 116 you, that no one of those people that were invited shall taste of my feast. 26 And those servants went out into the roads, and gathered all that they found, good and 27 bad: and the banquet-house was filled with guests. And the king entered to see those 28 who were seated, and he saw there a man not wearing a festive garment: and he said unto him, My friend, how didst thou come in here not having on festive gar- 29 ments? And he was silent. Then the king said to the servants, Bind his hands and his feet, and put him forth into the outer darkness; there shall be weeping and 30 gnashing of teeth. The called are many; and the chosen, few.

31 And after that, the time of the feast of unleavened bread of the Jews arrived, 32 and Jesus went out to go to Jerusalem. And as he went in the way, there met him 33 ten persons who were lepers, and stood afar off: and they lifted up their voice, and 34 said, Our Master, Jesus, have mercy upon us. And when he saw them, he said unto them, Go and shew yourselves unto the priests. And when they went, they 35 were cleansed. And one of them, when he saw himself cleansed, returned, and 36 was praising God with a loud voice; and he fell on his face before the feet of 37 Jesus, giving him thanks: and this man was a Samaritan. Jesus answered and said, 38 Were not those that were cleansed ten? where then are the nine? Not one of them turned aside to come and praise God, but this man who is of a strange 39 people. He said unto him, Arise, and go thy way; for thy faith hath given thee life.(2)

40 And while they were going up in the way to Jerusalem, Jesus went in front of them; and they wondered, and followed him fearing. And he took his twelve disciples apart, 41 and began to tell them privately(3) what was about to befall him. And he said unto Arabic, them, We are going up to Jerusalem, and all the things shall be fulfilled 42 p. 117 that are written in the prophets concerning the Son of man. He shall be delivered to the chief priests and the scribes; and they shall condemn him to death, 43 and deliver him to the peoples;(4) and they shall treat him shamefully, and scourge 44 him, and spit in his face, and humble him,(5) and crucify him, and slay him: and on 45 the third day he shall rise. But they understood not one thing of this; but this word was hidden from them, and they did not perceive these things that were addressed to them.

46 Then came near to him the mother of the (two) sons of Zebedee, she and her (two) sons, and worshipped him, and asked of him a certain thing. And he said 47 unto her, What wouldest thou? And James and John, her two sons, came forward, and said unto him, Teacher, we would that all that we ask thou wouldest 48 do unto us. He said unto them,(6) What would ye that I should do unto you? 49 They said unto him, Grant us that we may sit, the one on thy right, and the other So on thy left, in thy kingdom and thy glory. And Jesus said unto them, Ye know not what ye ask. Are ye able to drink the cup that I am to drink? and with the 51 baptism that I am to be baptized with, will ye be baptized? And they said unto him, We are able. Jesus said unto them, The cup that I drink ye shall drink; and 52 with the baptism wherewith I am baptized ye shall be baptized: but that ye should sit on my right and on my left is not mine to give; but it is for him for whom my Father hath prepared it.

31 1 And when the ten heard, they were moved with anger against James and John. 2 And Jesus called them, and said unto them, Ye know that the rulers of the nations

31 3 are their lords; and their great men are set in authority over them. Not thus shall it Arabic, be amongst you: but he amongst you that would be great, let him be to you a 4 p. 118 servant; and whoever of you would be first,(1) let him be to every man a 5 bond-servant: even as the Son of man also came not to be served, but to serve, and 6 to give himself a ransom in place of the many. He said this, and was going about 7 the villages and the cities, and teaching; and he went to Jerusalem. And a man asked him, Are those that shall be saved few? Jesus answered and said unto 8 them, Strive ye to enter at the narrow door: I say unto you now, that many shall 9 seek to enter, and shall not be able(2)--from the time when the master of the house riseth, and closeth the door, and ye shall be standing without, and shall knock at the door, and shall begin to say, Our lord, open unto us; and he shall answer and 10 say, I say unto you, I know you not whence ye are: and ye shall begin to say, 11 Before thee we did eat and drink, and in our markets didst thou teach; and he shall say unto you, I know you not whence ye are; depart(3) from me, ye servants 12 of untruth. There shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth, when ye see Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, and all the prophets, in the kingdom of God, while ye are 13 put forth without. And they shall come from the east and the west, and from the 14 north and the south, and shah sit down in the kingdom of God. And there shall then be last that have become first, and first that have become last.

15, 16 And when Jesus entered and passed through Jericho, there was a man named Zac- 17 chaeus, rich, and chief of the publicans. And he desired to see Jesus who he was; and he was not able for the pressure of the crowd, because Zacchaeus was little of stature. 18 Arabic, And he hastened, and went before Jesus, and went up into an unripe fig 19 p. 119 tree(4) to see Jesus: for he was to pass thus. And when Jesus came to that place, he saw him, and said unto him, Make haste, and come down, Zacchaeus: 20 to-day I must be in thy house. And he hastened, and came down, and received 21 him joyfully. And when they all saw, they murmured, and said, He hath gone in 22 and lodged with a man that is a sinner. So Zacchaeus stood, and said unto Jesus, My Lord, now half of my possessions I give to the poor, and what I have unjustly 23 taken(5) from every man I give him fourfold. Jesus said unto him, To-day is salva- 24 tion come to this house, because this man also is a(6) son of Abraham. For the Son of man came to seek and save the thing that was lost.

25 And when Jesus went out of Jericho, he and his disciples, there came after him 26 a great multitude. And there was a blind man sitting by the way side begging. 27 And his name was Timaeus, the son of Timaeus. And he heard the sound of the 28 multitude passing, and asked, Who is this? They said unto him, Jesus the Naza- 29 rene passeth by. And when he heard that it was Jesus, he called out with a loud 30 voice, and said, Jesus, son of David, have mercy on me. And those that went before Jesus were rebuking him, that he should hold his peace: but he cried the 31 more, and said, Son of David, have mercy on me. And Jesus stood, and commanded that they should call him. And they called the blind man, and said unto 32 him, Be of good courage, and rise; for, behold, he calleth thee. And the blind 33 man threw away his garment, and rose, and came to Jesus. Jesus said unto him, What dost thou wish that I should do unto thee? And that blind man said unto him, My Lord and Master, that my eyes may be opened, so that I may see thee.(8) 34 Arabic, And Jesus had compassion on him, and touched his eyes, and said unto 35 p. 120 him, See; for thy faith hath saved thee. And immediately he received his sight,(9) and came after him, and praised God; and all the people that saw praised God.

36 And he spake a parable because he was nearing(10) Jerusalem, and they supposed 37 that at that time the kingdom of God was about to appear. He said unto them, A man, a son of a great race, went into a far country, to receive a kingdom, and 38 return. And he called his ten servants, and gave them ten shares, and said unto

And when he had received a(1) kingdom, and returned, he said that the servants to whom he had given the money should be called unto him, that he might know what each 41 of them had traded. And the first came, and said, My lord, thy share hath gained 42 ten shares. The king said unto him, Thou good and faithful servant, who hast 43 been found faithful in a little, be thou set over ten districts. And the second came, 44 and said, My lord, thy portion hath gained five portions. And he said unto him 45 also, And thou shall be set over five districts. And another came, and said, My 46 lord, here is thy portion, which was with me laid by in a napkin: I feared thee, because thou art a hard man, and takest what thou didst not leave, and seekest 47 what thou didst not give, and reapest what thou didst not sow. His lord said unto him, From thy mouth shall I judge thee, thou wicked and idle servant, who wast untrustworthy. Thou knewest that I am a hard man, and take what I did not 48 leave, and reap what I did not sow: why didst thou not put my money at usury, 49 and so I might come and seek it, with its gains? And he said unto those that were standing in front of him, Take from him the share, and give it to him that hath 50, 51 Arabic, ten shares. They said unto him, Our lord, he hath ten shares. He said p. 121 unto them, I say unto you, Every one that hath shall be given unto; and 52 he that hath not, that which he hath also shall be taken from him. And those mine enemies who would not that I should reign over them, bring them, and slay them before me.

SECTION XXXII.

32 1 And when Jesus entered Jerusalem, he went up to the temple of God, and found 2 there oxen and sheep and doves. And when he beheld those that sold and those that bought, and the money-changers sitting, he made for himself a scourge of rope, and drove them all out of the temple, and the sheep and the oxen, and the money-changers; and he threw down their money, and upset their tables, and the seats of them that sold the doves; and he was teaching, and saying unto them, Is it not written, My house is a house of prayer for all peoples? and ye have made it a den for robbers. And he said unto those that sold the doves, Take this hence, and make not my Father's house a house of merchandise. And he suffered not any one to carry vessels inside the temple. And his disciples remembered the scripture, The zeal of thy house hath eaten me up. The Jews answered and said unto him, What sign hast thou shewn us, that thou doest this? Jesus answered and said unto them, Destroy this temple, and I shall raise it in three days. The Jews said unto him, This temple was built in forty-six years, and wilt thou raise it in three days? 10 But he spake unto them of the temple of his body, that when(2) they destroyed it, he 11 Arabic, would raise it in three days. When therefore he rose from among the p. 122 dead, his disciples remembered that he said this; and they believed the scriptures, and the word that Jesus spake.

12 And when Jesus sat down over against the treasury, he observed how the multitudes were casting their offerings into the treasury: and many rich men were 13, 14 throwing in much. And there came a poor widow, and cast in two mites. And Jesus called his disciples, and said unto them, Verily I say unto you, This poor 15 widow cast into the treasury more than all the people: and all of these cast into the place of the offering of God(3) of the superfluity of their wealth; while this woman of her want threw in all that she possessed. 16 And he spake unto them this parable, concerning people who trusted in them- 17 selves that they are righteous, and despised every man: Two men went up to the 18 temple to pray; one of them a Pharisee, and the other a publican. And the Pharisee stood apart,(4) and prayed thus, O Lord, I thank thee, since I am not like the rest of men, the unjust, the profligate, the extortioners, or even like this publican;

32 19 but I fast two days a week, and tithe all my possessions.(1) And the publican was 20 standing at a distance, and he would not even lift up his eyes to heaven, but was 21 beating upon his breast, and saying, O Lord, have mercy on me, me the sinner. I say unto you, that this man went down justified to his house more than the Pharisee. Every one that exalteth himself shall be abased; and every one that abaseth himself shall be exalted.

22 Arabic, And when eventide was come, he left all the people, and went outside the 23 p. 123 city to Bethany, he and his twelve, and he remained there. And all the people, because they knew the place, came to him, and he received them; and them that 24 had need of healing he healed. And on the morning of the next day, when he returned 25 to the city from Bethany, he hungered. And he saw a(2) fig tree at a distance on the beaten highway, having on it leaves. And he came unto it, expecting to find something on it; and when he came, he found nothing on it but the leaves--it(3) was not 26 the season of figs--and he said unto it, Henceforward for ever let no man eat fruit of thee. And his disciples heard.

27 And they came to Jerusalem. And there was there a man of the Pharisees, 28 named Nicodemus, ruler of the Jews. This man came unto Jesus by night, and said unto him, My Master, we know that thou hast been sent from God as a teacher; and no man can do these signs that thou doest, except him whom God is 29 with. Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, If a man 30 be not born a second time, he cannot see the kingdom of God. Nicodemus said unto him, How can a man who is old be born? can he, think you, return again to 31 his mother's womb a second time, to enter and be born? Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, If a man be not born of water and the Spirit, 32 he cannot enter the kingdom of God. For he that is born of flesh is flesh; and he that 33 is born of Spirit is spirit. Wonder not that I said unto thee that ye must be born a 34 Arabic, second time. The wind bloweth where it listeth, and thou hearest its voice, p. 124 but thou knowest not from what place it cometh, nor whither it goeth: so 35 is every man that is born of the Spirit. Nicodemus answered and said unto him, 36 How can that be? Jesus answered and said unto him, Art thou teaching(4) Israel, 37 and yet knowest not these things? Verily, verily, I say unto thee, What we know 38 we say, and what we have seen we witness: and ye receive not our witness. If I said unto you what is on earth, and ye believed not, how then, if I say unto you 39 what is in heaven, will ye believe? And no man hath ascended up into heaven, except him that descended from heaven, the Son of man, which is in heaven. 40 And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, so is the Son of man to be 41 lifted up; so that every man who may believe in him may not perish, but have 42 eternal life. God so loved the world, that(5) he should give his only Son; and so every one that believeth on him should not perish, but should have eternal life. 43 God sent not his Son into the world to judge the world; but that the world might 44 be saved by his hand. He that believeth in him shall not be judged: but he that believeth not is condemned beforehand, because he hath not believed in the name 45 of the only Son, the Son of God.(6) This is the judgement, that the light came into the world, and men loved the darkness more than the light; because their deeds 46 were evil. Whosoever doeth evil deeds hateth the light, and cometh not to the 47 light, lest his deeds be reproved. But he that doeth the truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be known, that they have been done in God.

33 1 Arabic, And when evening came, Jesus went forth outside of the city, he and his 2 p. 125 disciples. And as they passed in the morning, the disciples saw that fig tree 3 withered away from its root. And they passed by, and said, How did the fig tree dry 4 up immediately? And Simon remembered, and said unto him, My Master, behold,

Mk. 11, 19. Mk. 11, 20.

Mt. 21, 20b.

Mk. 11, 21.

33 5 that fig tree which thou didst curse hath dried up. And Jesus answered and said 6 unto them, Let there be in you the faith of God. Verily I say unto you, if ye believe, and doubt not in your hearts, and assure yourselves that that will be which 7 ye say, ye shall have what ye say. And if ye say to this mountain, Remove, and 8 fall(1) into the sea, it shall be. And all that ye ask God in prayer, and believe, he 9, 10 will give you. And the apostles(2) said unto our Lord, Increase our(3) faith. He said unto them, If there be in you faith like a grain of mustard, ye shall say to this fig tree, Be thou torn up, and be thou planted in the sea; and it will obey you. 11 Who of you hath a servant driving a yoke of oxen or tending sheep, and if he 12 come from the field, will say unto him straightway, Go and sit down? Nay,(4) he will say unto him, Make ready for me wherewith I may sup, and gird thy waist, and serve me, till I eat and drink; and afterwards thou shalt eat and drink also. 13 Doth that servant haply, who did what he was bid, receive his praise? I think 14 not. So ye also, when ye have done all that ye were bid, say, We are idle servants; what it was our duty to do, we have done.

15 For this reason I say unto you, Whatever ye pray and ask, believe that ye 16 Arabic, receive, and ye shall have. And when ye stand to pray, forgive what is p. 126 in your heart against any man; and your Father which is in heaven will 17 forgive you also your wrong-doings. But if ye forgive not men their wrong-doings, neither will your Father forgive you also your wrong-doings.

18 And he spake unto them a parable also, that they should pray at all times, and 19 not be slothful: There was a judge in a city, who feared not God, nor was ashamed 20 for men: and there was a widow in that city; and she came unto him, and said, 21 Avenge me of mine adversary. And he would not for a long time: but afterwards he said within himself, If of God I have no fear, and before men I have no shame; 22 yet because this widow vexeth me, I will avenge her, that she come not at all times 23, 24 and annoy me. And our Lord said, Hear ye what the judge of injustice said. And shall not God still more do vengeance for his elect, who call upon him in the night 25 and in the day, and grant them respite? I say unto you, He will do vengeance for them speedily. Thinkest thou the Son of man will come and find faith on the earth?

26, 27 And they came again to Jerusalem. And it came to pass, on one of the days, as Jesus was walking in the temple, and teaching the people, and preaching the 28 gospel, that the chief priests and the scribes with the elders came upon him, and said unto him, Tell us: By what power doest thou this? and who gave thee this 29 power to do that? And Jesus said unto them, I also will ask you one word, and if 30 ye tell me, I also shall tell you by what power I do that. The baptism of John, from 31 what place is it? from heaven or of men? Tell me. And they reflected within them- Arabic, selves, and said, If we shall say unto him, From heaven; he will say unto 32 p. 127 us, For what reason did ye not believe him? But(5) if we shall say, Of men; 33 we fear(6) that the people will stone us, all of them. And all of them were holding(7) 34 to John, that he was a true prophet. They answered and said unto him, We know 35 not. Jesus said unto them, Neither tell I you also by what power I work. What think ye? A man had two sons; and he went to the first, and said unto him, My 36 son, go to-day, and till in the vineyard. And he answered and said, I do not wish 37 to: but finally he repented, and went. And he went to the other, and said unto 38 him likewise. And he answered and said, Yea, my lord: and went not. Which of these two did the will of his father? They said unto him, The first. Jesus said unto them, Verily I say unto you, The publicans and harlots go before you into 39 the kingdom of God. John came unto you in the way of righteousness, and ye believed him not; but the publicans and harlots believed him; and ye, not even when ye saw, did ye repent at last, that ye might believe in him.

40 Hear another parable: A man was a householder, and planted a vineyard, and surrounded it with a hedge, and digged in it a winepress, and built in it a tower, 41, 42 and gave it to husbandmen, and went to a distance for a long time. So when the time of the fruits came, he sent his servants(8) unto the husbandmen, that they might

33 43 send him of the produce(1) of his vineyard. And those husbandmen beat him, and 44 sent him away empty. And he sent unto them another servant also; and they 45 stoned him, and wounded(2) him, and sent him away with shameful handling. And he sent again another; and they slew him. And he sent many other servants unto 46 them. And the husbandmen took his servants, and one they beat, and another they 47 stoned, and another they slew. So he sent again other servants more than the first; and 48 Arabic, they did likewise with them. So the owner of the vineyard said, What shall p. 128 I do? I will send my beloved son: it may be they will see him and be 49, 50 ashamed. So at last he sent unto them his beloved son that he had. But the husbandmen, when they saw the son, said amongst themselves, This is the heir. 51, 52 And they said, We will slay him, and so the inheritance will be ours. So they took 53 him, and put him forth without the vineyard, and slew him. When then the lord 54 of the vineyard shall come, what will he do with those husbandmen? They said unto him, He will destroy them in the worst of ways,(3) and give the vineyard to 55 other husbandmen, who will give him fruit in its season. Jesus said unto them, Have ye never read in the scripture,

The stone which the builders declared to be base,

The same came to be at the head of the corner:

56 From God was this,

And it is wonderful in our eyes?

57 Therefore I say unto you, The kingdom of God shall be taken from you, and 58 given to a people that will produce fruit. And whosoever falleth on this stone shall be broken in pieces: but on whomsoever it falleth, it will grind him to 59 powder. And when the chief priests and the Pharisees heard his parables, they 60 perceived that it was concerning them he spake. And they sought to seize him; and they feared the multitude, because they were holding to him as the prophet.

34 1 Then went the Pharisees and considered how they might ensnare him in a word, 2 and deliver him into the power of the judge,(4) and into the power of the ruler. And they sent unto him their disciples, with the kinsfolk of Herod; and they said unto him, Arabic, Teacher, we know that thou speakest the truth, and teachest the way of God p. 129 with equity,(5) and art not lifted up(6) by any man: for thou actest not so as to 3 be seen of any man. Tell us now, What is thy opinion? Is it lawful that we should 4 pay the tribute to Caesar, or not? shall we give, or shall we not give? But Jesus knew 5 their deceit, and said unto them, Why tempt ye me, ye hypocrites? Shew me the 6 penny of the tribute. So they brought unto him a penny. Jesus said unto them, To whom belongeth this image and inscription? They said unto him, To Caesar. 7, 8 He said unto them, Give what is Caesar's to Caesar, and what is God's to God. And they could not make him slip in a single word before the people; and they marvelled at his word, and refrained.

9 And on that day came the Sadducees, and said unto him,(7) There is no life for 10 the dead. And they asked him, and said unto him, Teacher, Moses said unto us, If a man die, not having children, let his brother take his wife, and raise up seed 11 for his brother. Now there were with us seven brethren: and the first took a wife, 12 and died without children; and the second took his wife, and died without children; 13 and the third also took her; and in like manner the seven of them also, and they 14, 15 died without leaving children. And last of them all the woman died also. At the resurrection, then, which of these seven shall have this woman? for all of them took 16 her. Jesus answered and said unto them, Is it not for this that ye have erred, 17 because ye know not the scriptures, nor the power of God? And the sons of this 18 world take wives, and the women become the men's;(8) but those that have become worthy of that world, and the resurrection from among the dead, do(9) not take

34 19 Arabic, wives, and the women also do(1) not become the men's. Nor is it possible p. 130 that they should die; but they(2) are like the angels, and are the children of 20 God, because they have become the children of the resurrection. For in(3) the resurrection of the dead, have ye not read in the book of Moses, how from the bush God said unto him, I am the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob? 21 And God is not the God of the dead, but of the living: for all of them are alive with him. And ye have erred greatly.

22, 23 And when the multitudes heard, they were wondering at his teaching. And 24 some of the scribes answered and said unto him, Teacher, thou hast well said. But the rest of the Pharisees, when they saw his silencing the Sadducees on this point, gathered against him to contend with him.

25 And one of the scribes, of those that knew the law, when he saw the excellence 26 of his answer to them, desired to try him, and said unto him, What shall I do to inherit eternal life? and, Which of the commandments is greater, and has precedence 27 in the law? Jesus said unto him, The first of all the commandments is, Hear, O 28 Israel; The Lord our God, the Lord is one: and thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy thought, and with all thy 29, 30 strength. This is the great and preeminent(5) commandment. And the second, which is like it, is, Thou shall love thy neighbour as thyself. And another commandment 31 greater than these two there is not. On these two commandments, then, are hung the

32 Arabic, law and the prophets. That scribe said unto him, Excellent! my Master;(6) p. 131 thou hast said truly that he is one, and there is no other outside of him: 33 and that a man should love him with all his heart, and with all his thought, and with all his soul, and with all his strength, and that he should love his neighbour as 34 himself, is better than all savours and sacrifices. And Jesus saw him that he had answered wisely; and he answered and said unto him, Thou art not far from the 35, 36 kingdom of God. Thou hast: spoken rightly: do this, and thou shalt live. And he, as his desire was to justify himself, said unto him, And who is my neighbour? 37 Jesus said unto him, A man went down from Jerusalem to Jericho; and the robbers fell upon him, and stripped(7) him, and beat him, his life remaining in him but little,(8) 38 and went away. And it happened that there came down a certain priest that way; 39 and he saw him, and passed by. And likewise a Levite also came and reached 40 that place, and saw him, and passed by. And a certain Samaritan, as he journeyed, 41 came to(9) the place where he was, and saw him, and had compassion on him, and came near, and bound up his strokes,(10) and poured on them wine and oil; and he set(11) him on the ass, and brought him to the inn, and expended his care upon him. 42 And on the morrow of that day he took out two pence, and gave them to the innkeeper, and said unto him, Care for him; and if thou spendest upon him more, 43 when I return, I shall give thee. Who of these three now, thinkest thou, is nearest 44 to him that fell among the robbers? And he said unto him, He that had compas- 45 Arabic, sion on him. Jesus said unto him, Go, and do thou also likewise. And p. 132 no man dared afterwards to ask him anything.

46 And he was teaching every day in the temple. But the chief priests and scribes and the eiders of the people sought to destroy him: and they could(12) not find what 47 they should do with him; and all the people were hanging upon him to hear him. 48 And many of the multitude believed on him, and said, The Messiah, when he 49 cometh, can it be that he will do more than these signs that this man doeth? And the Pharisees heard the multitudes say that of him; and the chief priests sent 50 officers(13) to seize him. And Jesus said unto them, I am with you but a short time

34 51 yet, and I go to him that sent me. And ye shall seek me, and shall not find me: 52 and where I shall be, ye shall not be able to come. The Jews said within themselves, Whither hath this man determined to go that we shall not be able(1) to find him? can it be that he is determined to go to the regions of the nations,(2) and teach 53 the heathen? What is this word that he said, Ye shall seek me, and shall not find me: and where I am, ye cannot come?

SECTION XXXV.

35 1 And on the great day, which is the last of the feast, Jesus stood, crying out and 2 saying, If any man is thirsty, let him come unto me, and drink. Every one that believeth in me, as the scriptures said, there shall flow from his belly rivers of pure water. He said that referring to the Spirit, which those who believed in him were to receive: for the Spirit was not yet granted; and because Jesus had not yet been Arabic, glorified. And many of the multitude that heard his words said, This is p. 133 in truth the prophet. And others said, This is the Messiah. But others said, Can it be that the Messiah will come from Galilee? Hath not the scripture said that from the seed of David, and from Bethlehem, the village of David, the 7 Messiah cometh? And there occurred a dissension in the multitude because of him. 8 And some of them were wishing to seize him; but no man laid a hand upon him.

9 And those officers came to the chief priests and Pharisees: and the priests said 10 unto them, Why did ye not bring him? The officers said, Never spake man thus 11 as speaketh this man. The Pharisees said unto them, Perhaps ye also have gone 12, 13 astray? Hath any of the rulers or the Pharisees haply believed in him? except 14 this people which knows not the law; they are accursed. Nicodemus, one of them, 15 he that had come to Jesus by night, said unto them, Doth our law haply condemn 16 a man, except it hear him first and know what he hath done? They answered and said unto him, Art thou also haply from Galilee? Search, and see that a prophet riseth not from Galilee.

17, 18 And when the Pharisees assembled, Jesus asked them, and said, What say ye of 19 the Messiah? whose son is he? They said unto him, The son of David. He said unto them, And how doth David in the Holy Spirit call him Lord? for he said, 20 The Lord said unto my Lord,

Sit on my right hand,

That I may put thine enemies under thy feet.

21, 22 If then David calleth him Lord, how is he his son? And no one was able to answer him; and no man dared from that day again to ask him of anything.

23 And Jesus addressed them again, and said, I am the light of the world; and he that 24 followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall find the light of life. The Pharisees Arabic, said unto him, Thou bearest witness to thyself; thy witness is not true. Jesus 25 p. 134 answered and said unto them, If I bear witness to myself, my witness is true; for I know whence I came, and whither I go; but ye know not whence I came, or 26, 27 whither I go. And ye judge after the flesh; and I judge no man. And even if I judge, my judgement is true; because I am not alone, but I and my Father which 28, 29 sent me. And in your law it is written, that the witness of two men is true. I am he that beareth witness to myself, and my Father which sent me beareth witness to 30 me. They said unto him, Where is thy Father? Jesus answered and said unto them, Ye know not me, nor my Father: for did ye know me, ye would know my 31 Father. He said these sayings in the treasury, where he was teaching in the 32 temple: and no man seized him; because his hour had not yet come. Jesus said unto them again, I go truly, and ye shall seek me and not find me, and ye shall die 33 in your sins: and where I go, ye cannot come. The Jews said, Will he haply kill 34 himself, that he saith, Where I go, ye cannot come? He said unto them, Ye are from below; and I am from above: ye are of this world; and I am not of this 35 world. I said unto you, that ye shall die in your sins: if ye believe not that I am 36 he, ye shall die in your sins. The Jews said, And thou, who art thou? Jesus said

35 37 unto them, If I should begin to speak unto you, I have concerning you many words and judgement: but he that sent me is true; and I, what I heard from him is what 38, 39 I say in the world. And they knew not that he meant by that the Father. Jesus Arabic, said unto them again, When ye have lifted up the Son of man, then ye p. 135 shall know that I am he: and I do nothing of myself, but as my Father 40 taught me, so I speak. And he that sent me is with me; and my Father hath not 41 left me alone; because I do what is pleasing to him at all times. And while he was saying that, many believed in him.

42 And Jesus said to those Jews that believed in him, If ye abide in my words, truly 43 ye are my disciples: and ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free. 44 They said unto him, We are the seed of Abraham, and have never served any man 45 in the way of slavery: how then sayest thou, Ye shall be free children? Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Every one that doeth a sin is a slave of 46 sin. And the slave doth not remain for ever in the house; but the son remaineth 47, 48 for ever. And if the Son set you free, truly ye shall be free children. I know that ye are the seed of Abraham; but ye seek to slay me, because ye are unable for my 49 word. And what I saw with my Father, I say: and what ye saw with your father, 50 ye do. They answered and said unto him, Our father is Abraham. Jesus said unto them, If ye were the children of Abraham, ye would do the deeds of Abraham. 51 Now, behold, ye seek to kill me, a man that speak(1) with you(2) the truth, that I 52 heard from God: this did Abraham not do. And ye do the deeds of your father. They said unto him, We were not born of fornication;(3) we have one Father, who is 53 God. Jesus said unto them, If God were your Father, ye would love me: I proceeded and came(4) from God; and it was not of my own self that I came,(4) but he sent 54 Arabic, me. Why then do ye not know my word? Because ye cannot hear my word. 55 p. 136 Ye are from the father, the devil,(5) and the lust of your father do ye desire to do, who from the beginning is a slayer of men, and in the truth standeth not, because the truth is not in him. And when he speaketh untruth, he speaketh from 56 himself: for he is a liar, and the father of untruth. And I who speak the truth, ye 57 believe me not. Who of you rebuketh me for a sin? And if I speak the truth, ye 58 do not believe me.(6) Whosoever is of God heareth the words of God: therefore do 59 ye not hear, because ye are not of God. The Jews answered and said unto him, 60 Did we not say well that thou art a Samaritan, and hast demons? Jesus said unto them, As for me, I have not a devil; but my Father do I honour, and ye dishonour 61 me. I seek not my glory: here is one who seeketh and judgeth.

36 1 Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whosoever keepeth my word shall not see death 2 for ever. The Jews said unto him, Now we know that thou hast demons. Abraham is dead, and the prophets; and thou sayest, Whosoever keepeth my word shall not 3 taste death for ever. Art thou haply greater than our father Abraham, who is 4 dead, and than the prophets, which are dead? whom makest thou thyself? Jesus said unto them, If I glorify myself, my glory is nothing: my Father is he that 5 glorifieth me; of whom ye say, that he is our(7) God; and yet ye have not known him: but I know him; and if I should say that I know him not, I should become 6 Arabic, a liar like you: but I know him, and keep his word. Abraham your father 7 p. 137 longed to see my day; and he saw, and rejoiced. The Jews said unto him, 8 Thou art now not fifty years old, and hast thou seen Abraham? Jesus said unto 9 them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I am. And they take(8) stones to stone him: but Jesus concealed himself, and went out of the temple. And he passed through them, and went his way.

36 10 And as he passed, he saw a man blind from his mother's womb. And his 11 disciples asked him, and said, Our Master, who sinned, this man, or his parents, so 12 that he was born blind?(1) Jesus said unto them, Neither did he sin, nor his parents: 13 but that the works of God may be seen in him.(2) It is incumbent on me to do the deeds of him that sent me, while it is day: a night will come, and no man will be 14 able to busy himself. As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world. 15 And when he said that, he spat upon the ground, and made clay of his spittle, and 16 smeared it on the eyes of the blind man, and said unto him, Go and wash thyself in 17 the pool(3) of Siloam.(4) And he went and washed, and came seeing. And his neighbours, which saw him of old begging, said, Is not this he that was sitting begging? 18 And some said, It is he; and others said, Nay, but he resembles him much. He 19, 20 said, I am he. They said unto him, How then were thine eyes opened? He answered and said unto them, A man named Jesus made clay, and smeared it on my eyes, and said unto me, Go and wash in the water of Siloam: and I went and 21 washed, and received sight.(5) They said unto him, Where is he? He said, I know not. 22, 23 Arabic, And they brought him that was previously blind to the Pharisees. And p. 138 the day in which Jesus made clay and opened with it his eyes was a sabbath 24 day. And again the Pharisees asked him, How didst thou receive sight? And he said 25 unto them, He put clay on mine eyes, and I washed, and received sight. The people(6) of the Pharisees said, This man is not from God, for he keepeth not the sabbath. And others said, How can a man that is a sinner do these signs? And there came 26 to be a division amongst them. And again they said to that blind man, Thou, then, what sayest thou of him that opened for thee thine eyes? He said unto them, 27 I say that he is a prophet. And the Jews did not believe concerning him, that he was blind, and received sight, until they summoned the parents of him who received 28 sight, and asked them, Is this(7) your son, of whom ye said that he was born blind? 29 how then, behold, doth he now see? His parents answered and said, We know 30 that this is our son, and that he was born blind: but how he has come to see now, or who it is that opened his eyes, we know not: and he also has reached his prime; 31 ask him, and he will speak for himself. This said his parents, because they were fearing the Jews: and the Jews decided, that if any man should confess of him that 32 he was the Messiah, they would put him out of the synagogue. For this reason 33 said his parents, He hath reached his prime; ask him. And they called the man a second time, him that was blind, and said unto him, Praise God: we know that this 34 man is a sinner. He answered and said unto them, Whether he be a sinner, I know 35 not: I know one thing, that I was blind, and I now see. They said unto him again, 36 Arabic, What did he unto thee? how opened he for thee thine eyes? He said unto p. 139 them, I said unto you, and ye did not hear: what(8) wish ye further to hear? 37 ye also, do ye wish to become disciples to him? And they reviled him, and said unto him, Thou art the disciple(9) of that man; but as for us, we are the disciples of 38 Moses. And we know that God spake unto Moses: but this man, we know not 39 whence he is. The man answered and said unto them, From this is the wonder, 40 because ye know not whence he is, and mine eyes hath he opened. And we know that God heareth not the voice of sinners: but whosoever feareth him, and doeth 41 his will, him he heareth. From eternity hath it not been heard of, that a man 42 opened the eyes of a blind man, who had been born in blindness. If then this man 43 were not from God, he could not do that. They answered and said unto him, Thou wast all of thee born in sins, and dost thou teach us? And they put him forth without.

44 And Jesus heard of his being put forth without, and found him, and said unto 45 him, Dost thou believe in the Son of God? He that was made whole answered 46 and said, Who is he, my Lord, that I may believe in him? Jesus said unto him, 47 Thou hast seen him, and he that speaketh to thee is he. And he said, I believe, my Lord. And he fell down worshipping him.

SECTION XXXVII.

37 1 And Jesus said, To judge the world am I come, so that they that see not may 2 see, and they that see may become blind. And some of the Pharisees which were 3 with him heard that, and they said unto him, Can it be that we are blind? Jesus said unto them, If ye were blind, ye should not have sin: but now ye say, We see: and because of this your sin remaineth.(1) 4 Arabic, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whosoever entereth not into the fold of the p. 140 sheep by the door, but goeth up from another place, that man is a thief and a 5, 6 stealer. But he that entereth by the door is the shepherd of the sheep. And therefore(2) the keeper of the door openeth for him the door; and the sheep hear his voice: and 7 he calleth his sheep(3) by their names, and they go forth unto him. And when he putteth forth his sheep, he goeth before them, and his sheep(3) follow him: because 8 they know his voice. And after a stranger will the sheep not go, but they flee from 9 him: because they hear not the voice of a stranger. This parable spake Jesus unto them: but they knew not what he was saying unto them. 10 Jesus said unto them again, Verily, verily, I say unto you, I am the door of the 11 sheep. And all that came are thieves and stealers: but the sheep heard them not. 12 I am the door: and if a man enter by me, he shall live, and shall go in and go out, 13 and shall find pasture. And the stealer cometh not, save that he may steal, and kill, and destroy: but I came that they might have life, and that they might have 14 the thing that is better.(4) I am the good shepherd; and the good shepherd giveth 15 himself(5) for his sheep. But the hireling, who is not a shepherd, and whose the sheep(6) are not, when he seeth the wolf as it cometh, leaveth the sheep, and fleeth, 16 and the wolf cometh, and snatcheth away the sheep, and scattereth(7) them: and the 17 hireling fleeth because he is an hireling, and hath no care for the sheep. I am the 18 good shepherd; and I know what is mine, and what is mine knoweth me, as my Father knoweth me, and I know my Father; and I give myself(18) for the sheep. 19 And I have other sheep also, that are not of this flock: them also I must invite, and they shall hear my voice; and all the sheep shall be one, and the shepherd one. 20 Arabic, And therefore doth my Father love me, because I give my life, that I may 21 p. 141 take it again. No man taketh it from me, but l leave it of my own choice. And I have the right to leave it, and have the right also to take it. And this commandment did I receive of my Father.

22 And there occurred a disagreement among the Jews because of these sayings. 23 And many of them said, He hath a devil, and is afflicted with madness;(9) why listen 24 ye to him? And others said, These sayings are not those of men possessed with demons. Can a demon haply open the eyes of a blind man?

25, 26 And the feast of the dedication came on at Jerusalem: and it was winter. And 27 Jesus was walking in the temple in the porch of Solomon. The Jews therefore surrounded him, and said unto him, Until when dost thou make our hearts anxious? 28 If thou art the Messiah, tell us plainly. He answered and said unto them, I told you, and ye believe not: and the deeds that I do in my Father's name bear witness 29, 30 to me. But ye believe not, because ye are not of my sheep,(10) as I said unto you. 31 And my sheep(10) hear my voice, and I know them, and they come after me: and I give them eternal life; and they shall not perish for ever, nor shall any man snatch 32 them out of my hands.(11) For the Father, who hath given them unto me, is greater 33 than all; and no man is able to take them from the hand of my(12) Father. I and 34, 35 my Father are one. And the Jews took stones to stone him. Jesus said unto them, Many good deeds from my Father have I shewed you; because of which(13) of them, 36 then, do ye stone me? The Jews said unto him, Not for the good deeds do we stone thee, but because thou blasphemest; and, whilst thou art a man, makest thy-

37 37 self God. Jesus said unto them, Is it not thus written in your law, I said, Ye are gods? 38 Arabic, And if he called those gods--for(1) to them came the word of God (and it is 39 p. 142 not possible in(2) the scripture that anything should be undone)--he then, whom the Father hath sanctified and sent into the world, do ye say that he blasphemeth; 40 because I said unto you, I am the Son of God? If then I do not the deeds of my 41 Father, ye believe me not.(3) But if I do, even if ye believe not me, believe the deeds: that ye may know and believe that my Father is in me, and I in my Father. 42 And they sought again to take him: and he went forth out of their hands.

43 And he went beyond Jordan to the place where John was baptizing formerly; 44 and abode there. And many people came unto him; and they said, John did not 45 work even one sign: but all that John said of this man is truth. And many believed in him. 46 And there was a sick man, named Lazarus, of the village of Bethany, the brother 47 of Mary and Martha. And Mary was she that anointed with sweet ointment the feet of Jesus, and wiped them with her hair; and Lazarus, who was sick, was the 48 brother of this woman.(4) And his sisters sent unto Jesus, and said unto him, Our 49 Lord, behold, he whom thou lovest is sick. But Jesus said, This sickness is not unto death, but for the glorifying of God, that the Son of God may be glorified 50, 51 because of it. And Jesus loved Martha, and Mary, and Lazarus. And when he 52 heard that he was sick, he abode in the place where he was two days. And after that, 53 he said unto his disciples, Come, let us go into Judaea. His disciples said unto him, Our Arabic, Master, now the Jews desire to stone thee; and goest thou again thither? 54, 55 p. 143 Jesus said unto them, Is not the day of twelve hours? If then a man walk in the day, he stumbleth not, because he seeth the light of the world. But if 56 a man walk in the night, he stumbleth, because there is no lamp in him. This said Jesus: and after that, he said unto them, Lazarus our friend hath fallen asleep; but 57 I am going to awaken him. His disciples said unto him, Our Lord, if he hath 58 fallen asleep, he will recover. But Jesus said that concerning his death: while they 59 supposed that he spake of lying down to sleep. Then Jesus said unto them plainly, 60 Lazarus is dead. And I am glad that I was not there for your sakes, that ye may 61 believe; but let us go thither. Thomas, who is called Thama,(5) said to the disciples, his companions, Let us also go, and die with him.
