CONVERSATION CONCERNING ELIAS. were with him were heavy with sleep: and when they were awake, they saw his glory, and the two men that stood with him. And it came to pass, as they departed from him, Peter said unto Jesus, Master, it is good for us to be here: 'if thou wilt, let us make here three tabernacles; one for thee, and one for Moses, and one for Elias. For he wist not what to say; for they were sore afraid. 3While he yet spake, behold, a bright cloud overshadowed them: “and they feared as they entered into the cloud. And there came a voice out of the cloud, 5 which said, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased; hear ye him. And when the disciples heard it, they fell on their face, and were sore afraid. And when the voice was past, ?Jesus came and touched them, and said, Arise, and be not afraid. And when they had lifted up their eyes, 8 (and) when they had looked round about, they saw no man any more, save Jesus only with themselves. And they kept it close, and told no man in those days any of those things which they had seen. I Mat. xvij. 4. 2 Mk. i8. 6. 3 Mat. xvii. 5. 4 Lu.ix. 34, 5. 5 Mat. xvii. 5, 6.

And they kept that saying with themselves, questioning one with another what the rising from the dead should mean. And his disciples asked him, saying, Why then say the scribes that Elias must first come? And Jesus answered and said unto them, Elias truly shall first come, and restore all things; 6 and how it is written of the Son of man, that he must suffer many things, and be set at nought. But I say unto you, That Elias is come already, and they knew him not, but have done unto him whatsoever they listed, 'as it is written of him. Likewise shall also the Son of man suffer of them. Then the disciples understood that he spake unto them of John the Baptist. When they were come down from the hill, much people met him. 1 Lu.ix. 37. 2 Mat. xvii. 9. 3 Mk. ix. 9, 10.

2. 'And when he came to his disciples, he saw a Mt: xvii. 14—18.great multitude about them, and the scribes quesMk. ix. 14–27. Lu. ix. 37–42. tioning with them. And straightway all the people, Near M. Tabor. when they beheld him, were greatly amazed, and running to him saluted him. And he asked the scribes, What question ye with them?
? And when they were come to the multitude, there came to him a certain man, kneeling down to him, and saying, "Master, I have brought unto thee my son, which hath a dumb spirit: “I beseech thee, look upon my son: for he is mine only child. • Lord, have mercy on my son: for he is lunatick, and sore vexed : for ofttimes he falleth into the fire, and oft into the water. And, lo, a spirit taketh him, and he suddenly crieth out; "and wheresoever he taketh him, he teareth him: and he foameth and gnasheth with his teeth, and pineth away: 8and, bruising him, hardly departeth from him; and I brought him to thy disciples, 10 that they should cast him out. And they could not cure him. Then Jesus answered and said, O faithless and perverse generation, how long shall I be with you ? how long shall I suffer you ? *Bring thy son hither. 13 And they brought him unto him: and when he saw him, straightway the spirit tare him; and he fell on the ground, and wallowed foaming. And he asked his father, How long is it ago since this came unto him? and he said, Of a child. And ofttimes it hath cast him into the fire, and into the waters, to destroy him: but if thou canst do any thing, have compassion on us, and help us. Jesus said unto him, If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth. And straightway the father of the child cried out, and said with tears, Lord, I believe; help thou mine unbelief. When Jesus saw that the people came running together, he rebuked the foul spirit, saying unto him, Thou dumb and deaf spirit, I charge thee, come out of him, and enter no more into him. And the spirit cried, and rent him sore, and came out of him: and he was as one dead; insomuch that many said, He is dead. But Jesus took him by the

And Near the same. Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard-seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove : ard nothing shall be impossible unto you.

TRIBUTE MONEY FROM A FISH.
95 No. 135. And when they were come to Capernaum, 24 Mai233.. they that received tribute-money came to Peter,
Capernaum. and said, Doth not your master pay tribute? He saith, Yes. And when he was come into the house, 25 Jesus prevented him, saying, What thinkest thou, Simon ?. of whom do the kings of the earth take custom or tribute, of their own children, or of strangers ? Peter saith 26 unto him, Of strangers. Jesus saith unto him, Then are the children frees Notwithstanding, lest we should offend 27 them, go thou to the sea, and cast an hook, and take up the fish that first cometh up; and when thou hast opened his mouth, thou shalt find a piece of money: that take, and give unto them for me and thee.
Mat. xvii. 24—27. No.136. Then there arose a reasoning among them, Mk. ix. 33-50. which of them should be greatest. ?And being in
Capernaum. the house he asked them, What was it that ye disputed among yourselves by the way? But they held their peace : for by the way they had disputed among themselves, who should be the greatest. And Jesus perceiving the thought of their heart, 4 sat down, and called the twelve, and saith unto them, If any man desire to be first, the same shall be last of all, and servant of all. And he took a child, and set him in the midst of them: and when he had taken him in his arms, he said unto them, Whosoever shall receive one of such children in my name, receiveth me: and whosoever shall receive me, receiveth not me, but him that sent me : Sfor he that is least among you all, the same shall be great.
6 And John answered him, saying, Master, we saw one casting out devils in thy name; and he followeth not us: and we forbad him, because he followeth not ?with us.
But Jesus said 'unto him, Forbid him not: 10 for there is no 39 man which shall do a miracle in my name, that can lightly speak evil of me. For he that is not against us is on our 40 part. For whosoever shall give you a cup of water to 41

drink in my name, because ye belong to Christ, verily I say 42 unto you, he shall not lose his reward. And whosoever
shall offend one of these little ones that believe in me, it is
better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, 43 and he were cast into the sea. And if thy hand offend
thee, cut it off: it is better for thee to enter into life
maimed, than having two hands to go into hell, into the 44 fire that never shall be quenched: where their worm dieth 45 not, and the fire is not quenched. And if thy foot offend
thee, cut it off: it is better for thee to enter halt into life,
than having two feet to be cast into hell, into the fire that 46 never shall be quenched: where their worm dieth not, and 47 the fire is not quenched. And if thine eye offend thee,
pluck it out: it is better for thee to enter into the kingdom
of God with one eye, than having two eyes to be cast into 48 hell-fire: where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not 49 quenched. For every one shall be salted with fire, and 50 every sacrifice shall be salted with salt. Salt is good : but
if the salt have lost his saltness, wherewith will ye season it? Have salt in yourselves, and have peace one with another.
Section 53.-(137, 138) The disciples refer their dispute to Jesus: he discourses to
them as before, but at greater length; and delivers the first of his moral parables, which represents a king holding account with his debtors. Matt. xviii. 1 At the same time came the disciples unto No. 137, 138.
Jesus, saying, Who is the greatest in the king- Capernaum. 2 dom of heaven? And Jesus called a little child unto 3 him, and set him in the midst of them, and said, Verily I
say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little
children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven. 4 Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little 5 child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven. And
whoso shall receive one such little child in my name re6 ceiveth me. But whoso shall offend one of these little
ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea.
