OF FORGIVENESS OF INJURIES.
97 - Woe unto the world because of offences ! for it must 7 needs be that offences come; but woe to that man by whom the offence cometh! Wherefore if thy hand or thy foot 8 offend thee, cut them off, and cast them from thee: it is better for thee to enter into life halt or maimed, rather than having two hands or two feet, to be cast into everlasting fire. And if thine eye offend thee, pluck it out, and cast 9 it from thee: it is better for thee to enter into life with one eye, rather than having two eyes to be cast into hell-fire. Take heed that ye despise not one of these little ones; 10 for I say unto you, That in heaven their angels do always behold the face of my Father which is in heaven. For 11 the Son of man is come to save that which was lost. How 12 think ye? if a man have an hundred sheep, and one of them be gone astray, doth he not leave the ninety and nine, and goeth into the mountains, and seeketh that which is gone astray? And if so be that he find it, verily I say 13 unto you, he rejoiceth more of that sheep, than of the ninety and nine which went not astray. Even so it is not the will 14 of your Father which is in heaven, that one of these little ones should perish.
Moreover, if thy brother shall trespass against thee, go 15 and tell him his fault between thee and him alone : if he shall hear thee, thou hast gained thy brother. But if he 16 will not hear thee, then take with thee one or two more, that in the mouth of two or three witnesses every word may be established. And if he shall neglect to hear them, tell 17 it unto the church: but if he neglect to hear the church, let him be unto thee as an heathen man and a publican. Verily 18 I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever ye shall loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven. Again I say unto you, That if 19 two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which . is in heaven. For where two or three are gathered together 20 in my name, there am I in the midst of them.

OF FORGIVENESS OF SINS. 21 Then came Peter to him, and said, Lord, how oft shall
my brother sin against me, and I forgive him ? till seven 22 times ? Jesus saith unto him, I say not unto thee, Until
seven times : but, Until seventy times seven. 23 Therefore is the kingdom of heaven likened unto a certain 24 king, which would take account of his servants. And
when he had begun to reckon, one was brought unto him, 25 which owed him ten thousand talents. But forasmuch as
he had not to pay, his lord commanded him to be sold, and
his wife, and children, and all that he had, and payment 26 to be made. The servant therefore fell down, and wor
shipped him, saying, Lord, have patience with me, and I 27 will pay thee all. Then the lord of that servant was
moved with compassion, and loosed him, and forgave him 28 the debt. But the same servant went out, and found one
of his fellow-servants, which owed him an hundred pence;
and he laid hands on him, and took him by the throat, 29 saying, Pay me that thou owest. And his fellow-servant
fell down at his feet, and besought him, saying, Have 30 patience with me, and I will pay thee all. And he would
not: but went and cast him into prison, till he should pay 31 the debt. So when his fellow-servants saw what was done,
they were very sorry, and came and told unto their lord all 32 that was done. Then his lord, after that he had called
him, said unto him, O thou wicked servant, I forgave thee 33 all that debt, because thou desiredst me: shouldest not
thou also have had compassion on thy fellow-servant, even 34 as I had pity on thee? And his lord was wroth, and deli
vered him to the tormentors, till he should pay all that was
due unto him. 35 So likewise shall my heavenly Father do also unto you, if
ye from your hearts forgive not every one bis brother their trespasses.

99 doeth any thing in secret, and he himself seeketh to be known openly. If thou do these things, shew thyself to the world. For neither did his brethren believe in him. 5 Then Jesus said unto them, My time is not yet come: but 6 your time is alway ready. The world cannot hate you: 7 but me it hateth, because I testify of it, that the works thereof are evil. Go ye up unto this feast: I go not up 8 yet unto this feast; for my time is not yet full come. When he had said these words unto them, he abode still in 9 Galilee.

salem.

And there was 12 much murmuring among the people concerning him : for some said, He is a good man: others said, Nay; but he deceiveth the people. Howbeit no man spake openly of 13 him, for fear of the Jews.

If 17 any man will do his will, he shall know of the doctrine, whether it be of God, or whether I speak of myself. He 18 that speaketh of himself seeketh his own glory: but he that seeketh his glory that sent him, the same is true, and no unrighteousness is in him.

JESUS TEACHES IN THE TEMPLE. 20 keepeth the law? Why go ye about to kill me? The
people answered and said, Thou hast a devil: who goeth 21 about to kill thee? Jesus answered and said unto them, I 22 have done one work, and ye all marvel. Moses therefore
gave unto you circumcision ; (not because it is of Moses,
but of the fathers ;) and ye on the sabbath-day circumcise 23 a man. If a man on the sabbath-day receive circumcision,
that the law of Moses should not be broken ; are ye angry
at me, because I have made a man every whit whole on the 24 sabbath-day ? Judge not according to the appearance, but judge righteous judgment.
Then said some of them of Jerusalem, Is not this he, 26 whom they seek to kill ? But, lo, he speaketh boldly, and
they say nothing unto him. Do the rulers know indeed 27 that this is the very Christ? Howbeit we know this man
whence he is : but when Christ cometh, no man knoweth 28 whence he is. Then cried Jesus in the temple as he taught,
saying, Ye both know me, and ye know whence I am: and
I am not come of myself, but he that sent me is true, 29 whom ye know not. But I know him: for I am from him, 30 and he hath sent me. Then they sought to take him: but , no man laid hands on him, because his hour was not yet come.
And many of the people believed on him, No. 142. and said, When Christ cometh, will he do In more miracles than these which this man hath In the
Temple. done ? 32 The Pharisees heard that the people murmured such
things concerning him; and the Pharisees and the chief 33 priests sent officers to take him. Then said Jesus unto
them, Yet a little while am I with you, and then I go unto 34 him that sent me. Ye shall seek me, and shall not find 35 me: and where I am, thither ye cannot come. Then said
the Jews among themselves, Whither will he go, that we shall not find him? will he go unto the dispersed among the

OFFICERS SENT TO TAKE JESUS.
101 Gentiles, and teach the Gentiles? What manner of saying 36 is this that he said, Ye shall seek me, and shall not find me: and where I am, thither ye cannot come ?
In the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood 37 and cried, saying, If any man thirst, let him come unto me, and drink. He that believeth on me, as the Scripture 38 hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water. (But this spake he of the Spirit, which they that believe on 39 him should receive: for the Holy Ghost was not yet given; because that Jesus was not yet glorified.)
Many of the people therefore, when they heard this 40 saying, said, Of a truth this is the Prophet. Others said, 41 This is the Christ. But some said, Shall Christ come out of Galilee ? Hath not the Scripture said, That Christ 42 cometh of the seed of David, and out of the town of Bethlehem, where David was? So there was a division among 43 the people because of him. And some of them would 44 have taken him ; but no man laid hands on him.
Then came the officers to the chief priests and Pharisees ; 45 and they said unto them, Why have ye not brought him ? The officers answered, Never man spake like this man. 46 Then answered them the Pharisees, Are ye also deceived ? 47 Have any of the rulers or of the Pharisees believed on him? 48 But this people who knoweth not the law are cursed. 49 Nicodemus saith unto them, (he that came to Jesus by 50 night, being one of them,) Doth our law judge any man, 51 before it hear him, and know what he doeth ? They 52 answered and said unto him, Art thou also of Galilee? Search, and look : for out of Galilee ariseth no prophet. And every man went unto his own house.
53 Jesus went unto the mount of Olives.
