||And when they came nigh to Jerusalem, unto Bethphage and Bethany, at the mount of
Olives, he sendeth forth two of his disciples,
||And saith unto them, Go your way into the village over against you: and as soon as ye
be entered into it, ye shall find a colt tied, whereon never man sat; loose him, and bring
||And if any man say unto you, Why do ye this? say ye that the Lord hath need of him;
and straightway he will send him hither.
||And they went their way, and found the colt tied by the door without in a place where
two ways met; and they loose him.
||And certain of them that stood there said unto them, What do ye, loosing the colt?
||And they said unto them even as Jesus had commanded: and they let them go.
||And they brought the colt to Jesus, and cast their garments on him; and he sat upon
||And many spread their garments in the way: and others cut down branches off the trees,
and strawed them in the way.
||And they that went before, and they that followed, cried, saying, Hosanna; Blessed is
he that cometh in the name of the Lord:
||Blessed be the kingdom of our father David, that cometh in the name of the Lord:
Hosanna in the highest.
||And Jesus entered into Jerusalem, and into the temple: and when he had looked round
about upon all things, and now the eventide was come, he went out unto Bethany with the
||And on the morrow, when they were come from Bethany, he was hungry:
||And seeing a fig tree afar off having leaves, he came, if haply he might find any
thing thereon: and when he came to it, he found nothing but leaves; for the time of figs
was not yet.
||And Jesus answered and said unto it, No man eat fruit of thee hereafter for ever. And
his disciples heard it.
||And they come to Jerusalem: and Jesus went into the temple, and began to cast out them
that sold and bought in the temple, and overthrew the tables of the moneychangers, and the
seats of them that sold doves;
||And would not suffer that any man should carry any vessel through the temple.
||And he taught, saying unto them, Is it not written, My house shall be called of all
nations the house of prayer? but ye have made it a den of thieves.
||And the scribes and chief priests heard it, and sought how they might destroy him: for
they feared him, because all the people was astonished at his doctrine.
||And when even was come, he went out of the city.
||And in the morning, as they passed by, they saw the fig tree dried up from the roots.
||And Peter calling to remembrance saith unto him, Master, behold, the fig tree which
thou cursedst is withered away.
||And Jesus answering saith unto them, Have faith in God.
||For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou
removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall
believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he
||Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye
receive them, and ye shall have them.
||And when ye stand praying, forgive, if ye have ought against any: that your Father
also which is in heaven may forgive you your trespasses.
||But if ye do not forgive, neither will your Father which is in heaven forgive your
||And they come again to Jerusalem: and as he was walking in the temple, there come to
him the chief priests, and the scribes, and the elders,
||And say unto him, By what authority doest thou these things? and who gave thee this
authority to do these things?
||And Jesus answered and said unto them, I will also ask of you one question, and answer
me, and I will tell you by what authority I do these things.
||The baptism of John, was it from heaven, or of men? answer me.
||And they reasoned with themselves, saying, If we shall say, From heaven; he will say,
Why then did ye not believe him?
||But if we shall say, Of men; they feared the people: for all men counted John, that he
was a prophet indeed.
||And they answered and said unto Jesus, We cannot tell. And Jesus answering saith unto
them, Neither do I tell you by what authority I do these things.
||And he began to speak unto them by parables. A certain man planted a vineyard, and set
an hedge about it, and digged a place for the winefat, and built a tower, and let it out
to husbandmen, and went into a far country.
||And at the season he sent to the husbandmen a servant, that he might receive from the
husbandmen of the fruit of the vineyard.
||And they caught him, and beat him, and sent him away empty.
||And again he sent unto them another servant; and at him they cast stones, and wounded
him in the head, and sent him away shamefully handled.
||And again he sent another; and him they killed, and many others; beating some, and
||Having yet therefore one son, his wellbeloved, he sent him also last unto them,
saying, They will reverence my son.
||But those husbandmen said among themselves, This is the heir; come, let us kill him,
and the inheritance shall be our's.
||And they took him, and killed him, and cast him out of the vineyard.
||What shall therefore the lord of the vineyard do? he will come and destroy the
husbandmen, and will give the vineyard unto others.
||And have ye not read this scripture; The stone which the builders rejected is become
the head of the corner:
||This was the Lord's doing, and it is marvellous in our eyes?
||And they sought to lay hold on him, but feared the people: for they knew that he had
spoken the parable against them: and they left him, and went their way.
||And they send unto him certain of the Pharisees and of the Herodians, to catch him in
||And when they were come, they say unto him, Master, we know that thou art true, and
carest for no man: for thou regardest not the person of men, but teachest the way of God
in truth: Is it lawful to give tribute to Caesar, or not?
||Shall we give, or shall we not give? But he, knowing their hypocrisy, said unto them,
Why tempt ye me? bring me a penny, that I may see it.
||And they brought it. And he saith unto them, Whose is this image and superscription?
And they said unto him, Caesar's.
||And Jesus answering said unto them, Render to Caesar the things that are Caesar's, and
to God the things that are God's. And they marvelled at him.
||Then come unto him the Sadducees, which say there is no resurrection; and they asked
||Master, Moses wrote unto us, If a man's brother die, and leave his wife behind him,
and leave no children, that his brother should take his wife, and raise up seed unto his
||Now there were seven brethren: and the first took a wife, and dying left no seed.
||And the second took her, and died, neither left he any seed: and the third likewise.
||And the seven had her, and left no seed: last of all the woman died also.
||In the resurrection therefore, when they shall rise, whose wife shall she be of them?
for the seven had her to wife.
||And Jesus answering said unto them, Do ye not therefore err, because ye know not the
scriptures, neither the power of God?
||For when they shall rise from the dead, they neither marry, nor are given in marriage;
but are as the angels which are in heaven.
||And as touching the dead, that they rise: have ye not read in the book of Moses, how
in the bush God spake unto him, saying, I am the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and
the God of Jacob?
||He is not the God of the dead, but the God of the living: ye therefore do greatly err.
||And one of the scribes came, and having heard them reasoning together, and perceiving
that he had answered them well, asked him, Which is the first commandment of all?
||And Jesus answered him, The first of all the commandments is, Hear, O Israel; The Lord
our God is one Lord:
||And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and
with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment.
||And the second is like, namely this, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. There
is none other commandment greater than these.
||And the scribe said unto him, Well, Master, thou hast said the truth: for there is one
God; and there is none other but he:
||And to love him with all the heart, and with all the understanding, and with all the
soul, and with all the strength, and to love his neighbour as himself, is more than all
whole burnt offerings and sacrifices.
||And when Jesus saw that he answered discreetly, he said unto him, Thou art not far
from the kingdom of God. And no man after that durst ask him any question.
||And Jesus answered and said, while he taught in the temple, How say the scribes that
Christ is the son of David?
||For David himself said by the Holy Ghost, The LORD said to my Lord, Sit thou on my
right hand, till I make thine enemies thy footstool.
||David therefore himself calleth him Lord; and whence is he then his son? And the
common people heard him gladly.
||And he said unto them in his doctrine, Beware of the scribes, which love to go in long
clothing, and love salutations in the marketplaces,
||And the chief seats in the synagogues, and the uppermost rooms at feasts:
||Which devour widows' houses, and for a pretence make long prayers: these shall receive
||And Jesus sat over against the treasury, and beheld how the people cast money into the
treasury: and many that were rich cast in much.
||And there came a certain poor widow, and she threw in two mites, which make a
||And he called unto him his disciples, and saith unto them, Verily I say unto you, That
this poor widow hath cast more in, than all they which have cast into the treasury:
||For all they did cast in of their abundance; but she of her want did cast in all that
she had, even all her living.
||And as he went out of the temple, one of his disciples saith unto him, Master, see
what manner of stones and what buildings are here!
||And Jesus answering said unto him, Seest thou these great buildings? there shall not
be left one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down.
||And as he sat upon the mount of Olives over against the temple, Peter and James and
John and Andrew asked him privately,
||Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign when all these things
shall be fulfilled?
||And Jesus answering them began to say, Take heed lest any man deceive you:
||For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.
||And when ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars, be ye not troubled: for such
things must needs be; but the end shall not be yet.
||For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be
earthquakes in divers places, and there shall be famines and troubles: these are the
beginnings of sorrows.
||But take heed to yourselves: for they shall deliver you up to councils; and in the
synagogues ye shall be beaten: and ye shall be brought before rulers and kings for my
sake, for a testimony against them.
||And the gospel must first be published among all nations.
||But when they shall lead you, and deliver you up, take no thought beforehand what ye
shall speak, neither do ye premeditate: but whatsoever shall be given you in that hour,
that speak ye: for it is not ye that speak, but the Holy Ghost.
||Now the brother shall betray the brother to death, and the father the son; and
children shall rise up against their parents, and shall cause them to be put to death.
||And ye shall be hated of all men for my name's sake: but he that shall endure unto the
end, the same shall be saved.
||But when ye shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet,
standing where it ought not, (let him that readeth understand,) then let them that be in
Judaea flee to the mountains:
||And let him that is on the housetop not go down into the house, neither enter therein,
to take any thing out of his house:
||And let him that is in the field not turn back again for to take up his garment.
||But woe to them that are with child, and to them that give suck in those days!
||And pray ye that your flight be not in the winter.
||For in those days shall be affliction, such as was not from the beginning of the
creation which God created unto this time, neither shall be.
||And except that the Lord had shortened those days, no flesh should be saved: but for
the elect's sake, whom he hath chosen, he hath shortened the days.
||And then if any man shall say to you, Lo, here is Christ; or, lo, he is there; believe
||For false Christs and false prophets shall rise, and shall shew signs and wonders, to
seduce, if it were possible, even the elect.
||But take ye heed: behold, I have foretold you all things.
||But in those days, after that tribulation, the sun shall be darkened, and the moon
shall not give her light,
||And the stars of heaven shall fall, and the powers that are in heaven shall be shaken.
||And then shall they see the Son of man coming in the clouds with great power and
||And then shall he send his angels, and shall gather together his elect from the four
winds, from the uttermost part of the earth to the uttermost part of heaven.
||Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When her branch is yet tender, and putteth forth
leaves, ye know that summer is near:
||So ye in like manner, when ye shall see these things come to pass, know that it is
nigh, even at the doors.
||Verily I say unto you, that this generation shall not pass, till all these things be
||Heaven and earth shall pass away: but my words shall not pass away.
||But of that day and that hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels which are in heaven,
neither the Son, but the Father.
||Take ye heed, watch and pray: for ye know not when the time is.
||For the Son of Man is as a man taking a far journey, who left his house, and gave
authority to his servants, and to every man his work, and commanded the porter to watch.
||Watch ye therefore: for ye know not when the master of the house cometh, at even, or
at midnight, or at the cockcrowing, or in the morning:
||Lest coming suddenly he find you sleeping.
||And what I say unto you I say unto all, Watch.
||After two days was the feast of the passover, and of unleavened bread: and the chief
priests and the scribes sought how they might take him by craft, and put him to death.
||But they said, Not on the feast day, lest there be an uproar of the people.
||And being in Bethany in the house of Simon the leper, as he sat at meat, there came a
woman having an alabaster box of ointment of spikenard very precious; and she brake the
box, and poured it on his head.
||And there were some that had indignation within themselves, and said, Why was this
waste of the ointment made?
||For it might have been sold for more than three hundred pence, and have been given to
the poor. And they murmured against her.
||And Jesus said, Let her alone; why trouble ye her? she hath wrought a good work on me.
||For ye have the poor with you always, and whensoever ye will ye may do them good: but
me ye have not always.
||She hath done what she could: she is come aforehand to anoint my body to the burying.
||Verily I say unto you, Wheresoever this gospel shall be preached throughout the whole
world, this also that she hath done shall be spoken of for a memorial of her.
||And Judas Iscariot, one of the twelve, went unto the chief priests, to betray him unto
||And when they heard it, they were glad, and promised to give him money. And he sought
how he might conveniently betray him.
||And the first day of unleavened bread, when they killed the passover, his disciples
said unto him, Where wilt thou that we go and prepare that thou mayest eat the passover?
||And he sendeth forth two of his disciples, and saith unto them, Go ye into the city,
and there shall meet you a man bearing a pitcher of water: follow him.
||And wheresoever he shall go in, say ye to the goodman of the house, The Master saith,
Where is the guestchamber, where I shall eat the passover with my disciples?
||And he will shew you a large upper room furnished and prepared: there make ready for
||And his disciples went forth, and came into the city, and found as he had said unto
them: and they made ready the passover.
||And in the evening he cometh with the twelve.
||And as they sat and did eat, Jesus said, Verily I say unto you, One of you which
eateth with me shall betray me.
||And they began to be sorrowful, and to say unto him one by one, Is it I? and another
said, Is it I?
||And he answered and said unto them, It is one of the twelve, that dippeth with me in
||The Son of man indeed goeth, as it is written of him: but woe to that man by whom the
Son of man is betrayed! good were it for that man if he had never been born.
||And as they did eat, Jesus took bread, and blessed, and brake it, and gave to them,
and said, Take, eat: this is my body.
||And he took the cup, and when he had given thanks, he gave it to them: and they all
drank of it.
||And he said unto them, This is my blood of the new testament, which is shed for many.
||Verily I say unto you, I will drink no more of the fruit of the vine, until that day
that I drink it new in the kingdom of God.
||And when they had sung an hymn, they went out into the mount of Olives.
||And Jesus saith unto them, All ye shall be offended because of me this night: for it
is written, I will smite the shepherd, and the sheep shall be scattered.
||But after that I am risen, I will go before you into Galilee.
||But Peter said unto him, Although all shall be offended, yet will not I.
||And Jesus saith unto him, Verily I say unto thee, That this day, even in this night,
before the cock crow twice, thou shalt deny me thrice.
||But he spake the more vehemently, If I should die with thee, I will not deny thee in
any wise. Likewise also said they all.
||And they came to a place which was named Gethsemane: and he saith to his disciples,
Sit ye here, while I shall pray.
||And he taketh with him Peter and James and John, and began to be sore amazed, and to
be very heavy;
||And saith unto them, My soul is exceeding sorrowful unto death: tarry ye here, and
||And he went forward a little, and fell on the ground, and prayed that, if it were
possible, the hour might pass from him.
||And he said, Abba, Father, all things are possible unto thee; take away this cup from
me: nevertheless not what I will, but what thou wilt.
||And he cometh, and findeth them sleeping, and saith unto Peter, Simon, sleepest thou?
couldest not thou watch one hour?
||Watch ye and pray, lest ye enter into temptation. The spirit truly is ready, but the
flesh is weak.
||And again he went away, and prayed, and spake the same words.
||And when he returned, he found them asleep again, (for their eyes were heavy,) neither
wist they what to answer him.
||And he cometh the third time, and saith unto them, Sleep on now, and take your rest:
it is enough, the hour is come; behold, the Son of man is betrayed into the hands of
||Rise up, let us go; lo, he that betrayeth me is at hand.
||And immediately, while he yet spake, cometh Judas, one of the twelve, and with him a
great multitude with swords and staves, from the chief priests and the scribes and the
||And he that betrayed him had given them a token, saying, Whomsoever I shall kiss, that
same is he; take him, and lead him away safely.
||And as soon as he was come, he goeth straightway to him, and saith, Master, master;
and kissed him.
||And they laid their hands on him, and took him.
||And one of them that stood by drew a sword, and smote a servant of the high priest,
and cut off his ear.
||And Jesus answered and said unto them, Are ye come out, as against a thief, with
swords and with staves to take me?
||I was daily with you in the temple teaching, and ye took me not: but the scriptures
must be fulfilled.
||And they all forsook him, and fled.
||And there followed him a certain young man, having a linen cloth cast about his naked
body; and the young men laid hold on him:
||And he left the linen cloth, and fled from them naked.
||And they led Jesus away to the high priest: and with him were assembled all the chief
priests and the elders and the scribes.
||And Peter followed him afar off, even into the palace of the high priest: and he sat
with the servants, and warmed himself at the fire.
||And the chief priests and all the council sought for witness against Jesus to put him
to death; and found none.
||For many bare false witness against him, but their witness agreed not together.
||And there arose certain, and bare false witness against him, saying,
||We heard him say, I will destroy this temple that is made with hands, and within three
days I will build another made without hands.
||But neither so did their witness agree together.
||And the high priest stood up in the midst, and asked Jesus, saying, Answerest thou
nothing? what is it which these witness against thee?
||But he held his peace, and answered nothing. Again the high priest asked him, and said
unto him, Art thou the Christ, the Son of the Blessed?
||And Jesus said, I am: and ye shall see the Son of man sitting on the right hand of
power, and coming in the clouds of heaven.
||Then the high priest rent his clothes, and saith, What need we any further witnesses?
||Ye have heard the blasphemy: what think ye? And they all condemned him to be guilty of
||And some began to spit on him, and to cover his face, and to buffet him, and to say
unto him, Prophesy: and the servants did strike him with the palms of their hands.
||And as Peter was beneath in the palace, there cometh one of the maids of the high
||And when she saw Peter warming himself, she looked upon him, and said, And thou also
wast with Jesus of Nazareth.
||But he denied, saying, I know not, neither understand I what thou sayest. And he went
out into the porch; and the cock crew.
||And a maid saw him again, and began to say to them that stood by, This is one of them.
||And he denied it again. And a little after, they that stood by said again to Peter,
Surely thou art one of them: for thou art a Galilaean, and thy speech agreeth thereto.
||But he began to curse and to swear, saying, I know not this man of whom ye speak.
||And the second time the cock crew. And Peter called to mind the word that Jesus said
unto him, Before the cock crow twice, thou shalt deny me thrice. And when he thought
thereon, he wept.
||And straightway in the morning the chief priests held a consultation with the elders
and scribes and the whole council, and bound Jesus, and carried him away, and delivered
him to Pilate.
||And Pilate asked him, Art thou the King of the Jews? And he answering said unto them,
Thou sayest it.
||And the chief priests accused him of many things: but he answered nothing.
||And Pilate asked him again, saying, Answerest thou nothing? behold how many things
they witness against thee.
||But Jesus yet answered nothing; so that Pilate marvelled.
||Now at that feast he released unto them one prisoner, whomsoever they desired.
||And there was one named Barabbas, which lay bound with them that had made insurrection
with him, who had committed murder in the insurrection.
||And the multitude crying aloud began to desire him to do as he had ever done unto
||But Pilate answered them, saying, Will ye that I release unto you the King of the
||For he knew that the chief priests had delivered him for envy.
||But the chief priests moved the people, that he should rather release Barabbas unto
||And Pilate answered and said again unto them, What will ye then that I shall do unto
him whom ye call the King of the Jews?
||And they cried out again, Crucify him.
||Then Pilate said unto them, Why, what evil hath he done? And they cried out the more
exceedingly, Crucify him.
||And so Pilate, willing to content the people, released Barabbas unto them, and
delivered Jesus, when he had scourged him, to be crucified.
||And the soldiers led him away into the hall, called Praetorium; and they call together
the whole band.
||And they clothed him with purple, and platted a crown of thorns, and put it about his
||And began to salute him, Hail, King of the Jews!
||And they smote him on the head with a reed, and did spit upon him, and bowing their
knees worshipped him.
||And when they had mocked him, they took off the purple from him, and put his own
clothes on him, and led him out to crucify him.
||And they compel one Simon a Cyrenian, who passed by, coming out of the country, the
father of Alexander and Rufus, to bear his cross.
||And they bring him unto the place Golgotha, which is, being interpreted, The place of
||And they gave him to drink wine mingled with myrrh: but he received it not.
||And when they had crucified him, they parted his garments, casting lots upon them,
what every man should take.
||And it was the third hour, and they crucified him.
||And the superscription of his accusation was written over, THE KING OF THE JEWS.
||And with him they crucify two thieves; the one on his right hand, and the other on his
||And the scripture was fulfilled, which saith, And he was numbered with the
||And they that passed by railed on him, wagging their heads, and saying, Ah, thou that
destroyest the temple, and buildest it in three days,
||Save thyself, and come down from the cross.
||Likewise also the chief priests mocking said among themselves with the scribes, He
saved others; himself he cannot save.
||Let Christ the King of Israel descend now from the cross, that we may see and believe.
And they that were crucified with him reviled him.
||And when the sixth hour was come, there was darkness over the whole land until the
||And at the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying, Eloi, Eloi, lama
sabachthani? which is, being interpreted, My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?
||And some of them that stood by, when they heard it, said, Behold, he calleth Elias.
||And one ran and filled a spunge full of vinegar, and put it on a reed, and gave him to
drink, saying, Let alone; let us see whether Elias will come to take him down.
||And Jesus cried with a loud voice, and gave up the ghost.
||And the veil of the temple was rent in twain from the top to the bottom.
||And when the centurion, which stood over against him, saw that he so cried out, and
gave up the ghost, he said, Truly this man was the Son of God.
||There were also women looking on afar off: among whom was Mary Magdalene, and Mary the
mother of James the less and of Joses, and Salome;
||(Who also, when he was in Galilee, followed him, and ministered unto him;) and many
other women which came up with him unto Jerusalem.
||And now when the even was come, because it was the preparation, that is, the day
before the sabbath,
||Joseph of Arimathaea, an honourable counsellor, which also waited for the kingdom of
God, came, and went in boldly unto Pilate, and craved the body of Jesus.
||And Pilate marvelled if he were already dead: and calling unto him the centurion, he
asked him whether he had been any while dead.
||And when he knew it of the centurion, he gave the body to Joseph.
||And he bought fine linen, and took him down, and wrapped him in the linen, and laid
him in a sepulchre which was hewn out of a rock, and rolled a stone unto the door of the
||And Mary Magdalene and Mary the mother of Joses beheld where he was laid.
||And when the sabbath was past, Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of James, and
Salome, had bought sweet spices, that they might come and anoint him.
||And very early in the morning the first day of the week, they came unto the sepulchre
at the rising of the sun.
||And they said among themselves, Who shall roll us away the stone from the door of the
||And when they looked, they saw that the stone was rolled away: for it was very great.
||And entering into the sepulchre, they saw a young man sitting on the right side,
clothed in a long white garment; and they were affrighted.
||And he saith unto them, Be not affrighted: Ye seek Jesus of Nazareth, which was
crucified: he is risen; he is not here: behold the place where they laid him.
||But go your way, tell his disciples and Peter that he goeth before you into Galilee:
there shall ye see him, as he said unto you.
||And they went out quickly, and fled from the sepulchre; for they trembled and were
amazed: neither said they any thing to any man; for they were afraid.
||Now when Jesus was risen early the first day of the week, he appeared first to Mary
Magdalene, out of whom he had cast seven devils.
||And she went and told them that had been with him, as they mourned and wept.
||And they, when they had heard that he was alive, and had been seen of her, believed
||After that he appeared in another form unto two of them, as they walked, and went into
||And they went and told it unto the residue: neither believed they them.
||Afterward he appeared unto the eleven as they sat at meat, and upbraided them with
their unbelief and hardness of heart, because they believed not them which had seen him
after he was risen.
||And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every
||He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be
||And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils;
they shall speak with new tongues;
||They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt
them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.
||So then after the Lord had spoken unto them, he was received up into heaven, and sat
on the right hand of God.
||And they went forth, and preached every where, the Lord working with them, and
confirming the word with signs following. Amen.
