29. But he, willing to justify
himself, said unto Jesus, And
who is my neighbour ?

30. And Jesus answering said, A certain man went down from Jerusalem to Jericho, and fell among thieves, which stripped him of his raiment, and wounded him, and departed, leaving him half dead.

31. And by chance there came down a certain priest that way : and when he saw him, he passed by on the other side.

32. And likewise a Levite, whon he was at the place, came, and looked on him, and passed by on the other side.

33. But a certain Samaritan, as he journeyed, came where he was, and when he saw him, he had compassion on him,

34. And went to him, and bound up his wounds, pouring, in oil and wine, and set him on his own beast, and brought him to an inn, and took oare of him.

35. And on the morrow, when he departed he took out two pence, and gave them to the host, and said unto him, take care of him: and whatsoever thou spend. est more, when I come again I will repay thee.

ST. LUKE, XI. Chap. XI., from P. 38.

37. | And as he spake, a cer. tain Pharisee besought him to dine with him : and he went in and sat down to meat.

38. And when the Pharisee saw it, he marvelled that he had not first washed before dinner.

39. And the Lord said unto him, Now do ye Pharisees make clean the outside of the cup and the platter ; but your inward part is full of ravening and wickedness.

40. Ye fools ! Did not he that made that which is without, make that which is within also ?

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

for ye make clean the outside of the cup and of the platter, but within they are fall of extortion and excess.

From P. 135.

26. Thou blind Pharisee, cleanse first that which is within the cup and platter, that the outside of them may be clean also.

27. Woe unto you scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For ye are like unto whited sepulchres ; which indeed appear beautiful outward, but are within full of dead men's bones, and of all uncleanness.

28. Even so ye also outwardly appear righteous unto men ; but within ye are full of hypocrisy and iniquity.

44. Woe unto you bcribes and Pharisees, hypocrites ! For ye are as graves which appear not, and the men that walk over them are not aware of them.

45. Then answered one of the lawyers, and said unto him, Master, Thus saying, thou reproachest us also.

46. And he said, Woe unto you also, ye lawyers ! For ye lade men with burdens grievous to be borne, and ye yourselves touch not the burdens with one of your fingers. M. XXIII. 4,

47. Woe unto you ! for ye build the sepulchres of the Prophets,

29. Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites ! Because yo build the tombs of the Prophets, and garnish the sepul. chres of the righteous,

30. And say, If we had been in the days of our fathers we would not have been partakers with them in the blood of the prophets.

31. Wherefore ye be witnesses unto yourselves, that ye are the children of them which killed the prophets.

32. Fill ye up then the measure of your fathers.

33. Ye serpents ! ye generation of vipers ! how can yo escape the damnation of hell ?

34. [ Wherefore behold, I send unto you Prophets, and wise men,

and your fathers killed them.

48. Truly ye bear witness that ye allow the deeds of your fathers : for they indeed killed them; and ye build their sepulchres.

49. Therefore also said the wisdom of God, I will send them Prophets and Apostles, and some of them they shall slay and persecute :




St. MATTHEW, XXIII. and scribes : and some of them ye shall kill and crucify; and some of them shall ye scourge your synagogues ; and persecute them from city to city.

35. That upon you may come all the righteous blood shed upon the earth, from the blood of righteous Abel, unto the blood" of Zacharias, son of Barachias, whom ye slow between the temple and the altar.

36. Verily I say unto you, All these things shall come upon this generation.

50. That the blood of all the prophets which was shed from the foundation of the world may be required of this generation ;

51. From the blood of Abel, unto the blood of Zacharias which perished between the altar and the temple. Verily, I say unto you, It shall be required of this gene. ration.

52. Woe unto you, lawyers ! for ye have taken away the key of knowledge ; ye enter not in your. selves, and them that were enter. ing in ye hindered.

53. And as he said these things unto them, the ecribes and the Pharisees began to urge bim vehemently, and to provoke him to speak of many things :

54. Laying wait for him, and seeking to catch something out of his mouth, that they might accuse him.

Chap. XIII., from P. 42.

31. The same day there came certain of the Pharisees, saying unto him, Get thee out and depart hence ; for Herod will kill thee.

32. And he said unto them, Go ye and tell that fox; behold I cast out devils, and I do cures to-day and to-morrow, and the third day I shall be perfected.

33. Nevertheless I must walk to-day, and to-morrow, and the day following; for it cannot be that a prophet perish out of Jerusalem.

37. O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, Thou that killest the prophets, and stonest them which are sent unto thee, how often would I have gathered thy children together, even as a hen gathereth her chicken under her wings; and ye would not !

39. For I say unto you, Ye shall not see me henceforth, till ye shall say, Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord.
