1They do not see or hear for fear they will be converted and have to change their hearts.
2I am the way, the truth, and the life.
3I tell you, The kingdom of God shall be taken from you and given to a nation that brings forth its fruits.
4Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden and I will give you rest.
5He who feeds on me will also live by me.
6Let the little children come to me. Do not forbid them for of such is the kingdom of God.
7If any man will serve me, let him follow me.
8The people brought young children that He should touch them but His disciples rebuked the people who brought them. Jesus was greatly displeased and said to the disciples, Suffer the little children to come to me. Forbid them not for of such is the kingdom of God.
9My Father works now, so I work.
10That which is highly esteemed among men is abomination in the sight of God.
11Jesus said to them, The children of this world marry, and are given in marriage. But those who are worthy of obtaining that world and the resurrection from the dead, neither marry, nor are given in marriage, nor can they die anymore. They are equal to the angels; and are the children of God, being the children of the resurrection.
12Now I come to you and speak these things in the world so they will have my joy fulfilled in themselves.
13He who has seen me has seen the Father.
14And the righteous shall have life eternal.
15The Son of man is come to seek and to save those who were lost.
16For every friend that asks, receives; and he that seeks, finds; and to the one that knocks, it shall be opened.
17And, because iniquity will abound, the love of many will wax cold.
18Enter into the joy of thy lord!
19For I was hungry and ye gave me food.
20He who loves his life in this world will lose it; and he who hates his life will have life eternal.
21For I say to you, None of those who were invited shall taste of my supper.
22Your tradition has made the commandment of God useless.
23Now which of these three, do you think, was a neighbor to the man who fell among the thieves? The lawyer answered, He that showed mercy on him. Then Jesus said to him, Go, and do thou likewise.
24He that hears you hears me; and he that despises you despises me.
25He who has my commandments and keeps them, loves me.
26I am the bread of life. He who comes to me will never hunger. He who believes in me will never thirst.
27Do not labor for food that perishes but for the food that endures for life everlasting.
28I came to set the earth on fire; and I wish it was already kindled.
29Who, then, is that faithful and wise steward whom his lord shall make ruler over his household to justly give out the portions of meat in due season? Blessed is that servant whom his lord, when he comes, shall find already doing so. I tell you, he will make him ruler over all that he has.
30The kingdom of heaven is like a man who travels into a far country. Before he leaves, he calls his servants and turns his goods over to them. To one he gives five talents. To another he gives two talents. To another he gives one.
31He has shown strength with His arm; He has scattered the proud in the imagination of their hearts. He has put down the mighty from their thrones, and exalted those of low degree. He has filled the hungry with good things; and the rich He has sent away empty.
32A nobleman went a great distance to receive for himself a kingdom, and to return. He called his ten servants together and delivered over to them ten talents. He said to them, Handle my business until I return.
33If I do not do the works of my Father, do not believe me.
34For what is a man advantaged, if he gain the whole world, and lose himself, or be cast away?
35He who seeks the glory of the one who sent Him is truthful and has nothing false in Him.
36I tell you this so that my joy will remain in you and your joy will be full.
37Whoever is angry with his brother shall be in danger of the judgment.
38False prophets will arise and deceive.
39Father's commandments and abide in His love.
40But he that is a hireling and not the shepherd, whose sheep are not his own, sees a wolf coming, leaves the sheep and runs away. The wolf catches and scatters them.
41Jesus answered, The first of all the commandments is, Hear, O Israel. The Lord our God is one Lord. Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, with all thy soul, with all thy mind, and with all thy strength. This is the first commandment. The second is, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. There is no other commandment greater than these.
42I say to you, there is more joy in heaven over one sinner that repents, than over ninety-nine just persons who need no repentance.
43If ye do good only to those who do good to you, what thanks have ye? Sinners do even the same also.
44You neither know me nor my Father. If you had known me you would have known my Father also.
45My friends, Be not afraid of those who kill the body because, after that, there is no more they can do. But I will forewarn you who to fear.
46So, it is not the will of your Father in heaven that one of these little ones should perish.
47He shall turn many of the children of Israel to the Lord, their God. He shall go in the spirit and power of Elias to turn the hearts of the fathers to the children, and the disobedient to the wisdom of the just; to make ready a people prepared for the Lord.
48He was lost and now is found.
49Bless those who curse you.
50I am not alone because the Father is with me.
51No man can come to me unless it is granted by my Father. From that time many of His followers went back and walked with Him no more.
52For the people's hearts are hardened.
53If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, take up his cross daily, and follow me.
54I came into this world for judgment; so those who do not see may see, and those who see become blind.
55Fear not those who kill the body but are not able to kill the soul. Instead, fear the one who is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.
56Perfect them through your truth. Your word is truth.
57All things are delivered to me by my Father.
58Be careful not to despise one of these little ones; for I tell you, in heaven, their angels always look upon the face of my Father.
59I am the door. If any man enters by me he will be saved. He will go in and out and find pasture.
60He answered one of them and said, Friend, I do thee no wrong.
61The world cannot hate you but it hates me because I testify that the ways of the world are evil.
62He ran, and fell on his neck, and kissed him. The son said to him, Father, I have sinned against heaven, and in thy sight, and am not worthy to be called thy son.
63Do ye not perceive that whatsoever thing from without enters into the man it cannot defile him because it enters not into his heart, but into the belly and goes out into the draught, purging all meats?
64Must you see evil in my goodness?
65Then, when you have him, you make him two times more the child of hell than yourselves.
66I have baptized you with water but He shall baptize you with the Holy Spirit.
67A thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I came so they might have life and have it more abundantly.
68If any man thirsts, let Him come to me and drink.
69He said, When you are invited to a wedding, do not sit down in the highest room; lest one more honorable than you has been invited. The host would have to come and tell you the room was for someone else and, with shame, you move to the lowest room.
70Blessed are you when others hate you, separate you from their company, reproach you, and denounce your name as evil for the Son of man's sake. Rejoice in that day and leap for joy! Your reward in heaven is great. Their fathers treated the prophets the same way.
71Thou blind Pharisee. First clean the inside of the cup and platter, so the outside may be clean also.
72I am the light of the world. He who follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.
73The hired man flees because he works for wages and does not care about the sheep.
74Either make the tree good and its fruit good; or else make the tree corrupt and its fruit corrupt; for the tree is known by its fruit.
75If ye love only those who love you, what reward have ye? Do not even the publicans do this?
76The seed is the word of God. Those by the wayside are they that hear;
77I speak about what I have seen with my Father; and you do what you have seen from your father.
78Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.
79What is a man profited if he gains the whole world and loses his own soul?
80Do not think that I came to earth to bring peace. I came not to bring peace, but a sword.
81If you know me, you know my Father also, and from now on you know Him and have seen Him.
82What I do, I do so the world may know that I love the Father and do as the Father commanded me.
83Take up my yoke and learn from me. I am meek and lowly in heart. You will find rest for your souls because my yoke is easy and my burden is light.
84Everyone who is of the truth hears my voice.
85Only he who does the will of my Father in heaven shall enter.
86So, I say to you, all kinds of sin and blasphemy against men will be forgiven, but blasphemy against the Holy Spirit will not be forgiven.
87Holy Father. Keep, through your own name, those you have given me, so they may be one, just as we are one.
88If any man is a worshipper of God and does His will, He hears him.
89If you were Abraham's children you would do the works of Abraham.
90The Father has not left me alone because I always do what pleases Him.
91And, if that light in you grows dark, how much greater will that darkness be!
92It is the spirit that is life. The flesh means nothing.
93So it is with whoever lays up treasure for himself and is not rich toward God.
94And if ye greet your friends only, what do ye do more than others? Do not even the publicans do this?
95She had a sister, Mary, who also sat at Jesus' feet and heard His word.
96If you keep my commandments you will abide in my love as I have kept my
97Whoever will lose his life for my sake, shall save it.
98For Thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever. Amen.
99Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness' sake for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
100There is nothing covered that shall not be revealed; nor hidden that shall not be known.
101But Abraham said, Son, remember that you received your good things during your lifetime and Lazarus got the evil things. Now he is comforted, and you are tormented.
102Father, if thou be willing, remove this cup from me; nevertheless, not my will, but thine be done.
103The kingdom of God is at hand. Repent and believe the gospel.
104behold, the kingdom of God is within you.
105The disciples went out and preached that men should repent. They cast out many devils,
106If a man loves me, he will keep my words and my Father will love him. We will come to him and make our abode with him.
107He who is of God hears God's words. You do not hear them because you are not of God.
108With authority and power He commands the unclean spirits and they come out.
109He that has two coats, let him give it to him that has none.
110From that time the kingdom of God is proclaimed and every man presses into it.
111Yet you lack one thing. Sell all you have and give to the poor. You will have treasure in heaven. Then come and follow me.
112In Him was life; and the life was the light of men.
113Ye shall be hated by all men for my name's sake. But he that shall endure to the end shall be saved.
114Take heed how ye hear: for whoever has understanding, to him more shall be given; and whoever has not, from him shall be taken even that which he seems to have.
115He arose and went to his father. But when he was yet a great way off, his father saw him and had compassion.
116But he that hears and does not do the things I say is like a man that is without a foundation for he built a house upon the earth against which the stream beat vehemently. Immediately it fell and the ruin of that house was great.
117Sin no more lest a worse thing comes to you.
118Peter began to rebuke Him and said, Far be it from thee, Lord. This shall not be. Jesus turned quickly, stopped Peter, and said, Get thee behind me, Satan. Thou art an offence to me. Thou savor not the things of God, but those of men.
119Who among you, when your servant comes in from plowing or feeding cattle, will say, Go and sit down to eat? Instead, you say to him, Wash yourself and change your clothes; prepare and serve me my supper; and then you shall eat and drink.
120Behold, my mother and my brethren! Whoever does the will of my Father in heaven is my brother, and sister, and mother.
121Out of the abundance of the heart, the mouth speaks.
122Or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?
123No one can serve two masters. He will either hate the one and love the other, or he will hold to the one and despise the other.
124My food is to do the will of Him who sent me and to complete His work.
125Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam from your own eye, and only then shall thou see clearly enough to pull out the mote in thy brother's eye.
126Jesus answered, Well has Isaiah prophesied of you hypocrites. It is written, This people honor me with their lips but their heart is far from me.
127Jesus said to them, Ye are they who justify yourselves before men but God knows your hearts.
128Have ye still hardened hearts? Having eyes, see ye not? And having ears, hear ye not?
129Instead, lay up treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust corrupts, nor thieves can break in and steal.
130From now on there shall be five in one house divided, three against two, and two against three. The father shall be divided against the son, and the son against the father; the mother against the daughter, and the daughter against the mother; the mother in law against her daughter in law, and the daughter in law against her mother in law.
131Verily I say to you, Whosoever shall not receive the kingdom of God as a little child, shall not enter in. Jesus took them up in His arms, put His hands upon them, and blessed them.
132Therefore, all things ye would have others do to you, do so to them. This is the law and the meaning of the prophets.
133Lord, I will follow thee; but let me first go bid farewell to those at my house. Jesus said, No man, having put his hand to the plough, and looking back, is fit for the kingdom of God.
134Unless your righteousness exceeds the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, there is no way you shall enter the kingdom of heaven.
135The servant fell down and worshipped him saying, Lord, have patience with me and I will pay it all. Then the lord of that servant was moved with compassion, loosed him, and forgave him the debt.
136I do not seek my own will but the will of the Father who sent me.
137He makes His sun rise on the evil and on the good.
138His lord was angry and delivered him to the tormentors until he paid all that was due. So also shall my heavenly Father do to you if ye do not forgive other's trespasses.
139He continued all night in prayer to God.
140Blessed are the peacemakers for they shall be called the children of God.
141The servant does not abide in the house forever, but the Son does abide forever. If the Son will make you free, you will be free indeed.
142Ye serpents, ye generation of vipers, how can ye escape the damnation of hell?
143But the citizens hated this nobleman, and sent a message after him, saying, We will not have this man reign over us.
144Unless you repent, ye shall all likewise perish.
145If it is not worthy, let your peace return to you.
146The time will come when whoever kills you will think that he does God a service.
147However, do not rejoice that the spirits are subject to you; but rejoice because your names are written in heaven.
148He who partakes of this bread will live forever.
149And by seeing ye shall see and shall not perceive.
150Everyone who does evil hates the light and does not come into the light lest his deeds be exposed. But whoever lives the truth, comes to the light that his deeds may be shown as a reflection of God.
151Whoever commits sin is the servant of sin.
152Finally, the man sent his only son whom he loved very much. He reasoned, They will respect my son. But the husbandmen said, This is the heir; come, let us kill him and the inheritance shall be ours. They took the son, killed him, and cast him out of the vineyard. What, then, shall the lord of the vineyard do? He will come and destroy the husbandmen and let out the vineyard to others.
153By your words you shall be justified; and by your words you shall be condemned.
154Unclean spirits, when they saw Him, fell down before Him and cried,
155I am the vine. You are the branches. He who abides in me, and I in him, brings forth much fruit; for, without me, you can do nothing.
156Every tree is known by its own fruit. Of thorns men do not gather figs, nor of a bramble bush do they gather grapes.
157That which comes out of the mouth defiles a man.
158Neither do I pray for these alone. But I pray also for those who will believe in me through their word so that they all may be one, as you, Father, are in me, and I in you.
159Then Jesus said to the people, When ye see a cloud rise out of the west, ye say, A shower is coming; and so it is. When ye see the south wind blow, ye say, It is going to be hot; and it comes to pass. Ye hypocrites, ye can discern the face of the sky and of the earth; but how is it that ye do not discern this time?
160Jesus answered, It is written: Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word of God.
161That seeing they may see, and not perceive; and hearing they may hear, and not understand; lest at any time they should be converted, and their sins should be forgiven them.
162The angels will come and sever the wicked from the just and cast them into the furnace.
163John was not that light, but was sent to bear witness of that light.
164Jesus spoke a parable to them, Can the blind lead the blind? Shall they not both fall into the ditch?
165The cares of today are sufficient for today.
166If you, who are sinners, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more shall your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask Him?
167But woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees. Hypocrites! Ye shut men out of the kingdom of heaven.
168I am the Good Shepherd. I know my sheep and I am known by my sheep.
169Remain in the same house, eating and drinking such things as they give; for the laborer is worthy of his hire. Do not go from house to house.
170Then Zacchaeus said, Lord, the half of my goods I give to the poor.
171I will ask the Father, and He will give you another Comforter to abide with you forever. This is the Spirit of truth which the world cannot receive because it will not see Him and will not know Him. But you will know Him for He will dwell with you and will be in you.
172If you abide in me, and my words abide in you, all that you ask will be done. This is how my Father is glorified; that you bear much fruit and, by doing so, are my disciples.
173He said to them, it is written: My house shall be called a house of prayer; but ye have made it a den of thieves.
174Behold, your house is left unto you desolate.
175Give ye them to eat.
176Stay here and watch with me.
177You are the ones who have stood by me in my temptations. I appoint to you a kingdom, as my Father has appointed to me, so you may eat and drink at my table in my kingdom and sit on thrones judging the twelve tribes of Israel.
178Blessed are the meek for they shall inherit the earth.
179For a while they believe but in time of temptation they fall away.
180Nothing shall, in any way, hurt you.
181Woe to you who now laugh! You will mourn and weep.
182He that is least among you all shall be great.
183Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees. Hypocrites! Ye make the outside of the cup and platter clean, but inside they are full of extortion and excess.
184No man, when he has lighted a candle, covers it with a vessel, or puts it under a bed. Instead he sets it on a candlestick so those who enter in may see the light.
185But I judge no man. And yet, if I judge, my judgment is true because I am not alone, but I and the Father who sent me are one.
186And Jesus said, A prophet is without honour in his own country, among his own kin, and in his own house.
187Whoever hears these sayings and does not do them I liken to a foolish man who built his house upon the sand. When the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat upon that house, it fell. And a great fall it was.
188When affliction or persecution arises for the word's sake, they are offended.
189Nevertheless, when the Son of man comes, shall He find faith on the earth?
190All who take to the sword shall perish by the sword.
191When the Lord saw her, He had compassion and said to her, Weep not.
192The Father seeks such people to worship Him. God is a Spirit. Those who worship Him must worship Him in spirit and in truth.
193They like greetings in the markets and to be called out to, Rabbi, Rabbi.
194When he departed the next morning, he took out some money, gave it to the host, and said, Take care of him. Whatever more you spend, I will repay you on my way back.
195He who sees me sees Him who sent me.
196Blessed are those servants, who, when the lord comes, He finds ready and waiting.
197If you love me, keep my commandments.
198Teach them to observe all the things I have commanded you.
199There was a priest named Zacharias, of the course of Abia. His wife was of the daughters of Aaron, and her name was Elisabeth. They were both righteous before God, walking blamelessly in all the commandments and ordinances of the Lord.
200But whoever speaks against the Holy Spirit, will not be forgiven; not in this world and not in the world to come.
201Verily I say to you, All sins shall be forgiven to the sons of men, and blasphemies also, however they blaspheme. But he that blasphemes against the Holy Spirit will never have forgiveness, but is in danger of eternal damnation.
202The Son of man is come eating and drinking; and ye say, Behold a gluttonous man, and a winebibber, a friend of publicans and sinners!
203No one can come to me unless the Father who sent me draws him to me.
204Again, the kingdom of heaven is like treasure hidden in a field. When a man discovers it, he buries it again. Then, joyfully, he goes and sells all he has in order to buy that field.
205In vain do they worship me. They teach the commandments of men as doctrines.
206Did thou not agree with me for a coin? Take what is thine and go thy way. I will give to the last the same as I give to thee. Is it not lawful for me to do what I will with my own coins?
207Instead, seek ye the kingdom of God and all these things shall be added to you.
208Whoever comes to me, hears my sayings, and does them, I will tell you who he is like: He is like a man who built a house on a deep foundation of rock. When the flood arose, the stream beat vehemently on that house and could not shake it for it was founded upon a rock.
209You judge according to the flesh.
210A man had two sons. He came to the first and said, Son, today go to work in my vineyard. The son answered, I will not. But, afterward he repented and went to work.
211You are my friends. If you do what I command you, I do not call you servants. The servant does not know what his lord does. But I call you friends because all that I have heard from my Father, I have made known to you.
212And this is the condemnation: light came into the world and men loved darkness rather than light because their deeds were evil.
213The wind blows and you hear the sound but cannot tell from where it comes or to where it goes. So it is with those born of the Spirit.
214Ye shall be the children of the Highest for He is kind to the unthankful and to the evil.
215Provide neither gold nor silver nor brass in your purses.
216How does He know all this since He has no training? Jesus answered, My teachings are not mine but the teachings of the one who sent me. If any man does His will he will know whether the doctrine is from God or whether I speak on my own. He who speaks on his own seeks his own glory.
217No one uses a piece of new cloth to patch an old garment for the piece that is put in to cover the space takes from the garment and the rent is worse than before.
218Do this that ye may be the children of your Father in heaven.
219for many are called, but few are chosen.
220Those on the rock are they, who, when they hear, receive the word with joy. They have no root.
221The words I speak are about spirit and about life. But there are some of you who do not believe.
222Whoever loses his life, for my sake, shall find it.
223Woe to you, lawyers! You have taken away the key of knowledge.
224By hearing ye shall hear and shall not understand.
225One of the group said, Master, tell my brother to divide the inheritance with me. Jesus replied, Who made me a judge or a divider over you?
226You are of your father the devil and you will do the wicked deeds of your father. He was a murderer from the beginning.
227He did not do many mighty works there because of their unbelief.
228The Pharisees, who were covetous, heard all these things and derided Him.
229Stop saying to yourselves, We have our father, Abraham: for I tell you, God is able to raise up children to Abraham from these stones.
230When your eye is single, your whole body is also full of light.
231As I said to you, My sheep hear my voice and I know them and they follow me. And I give them eternal life. They will never perish, nor will any man pluck them out of my hand.
232To whomever much is entrusted, of him even much more will be demanded.
233They bind heavy burdens, grievous to be borne, and lay them on men's shoulders. But they, themselves, will not even lay so much as a finger on one of them.
234Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a merchant in search of good pearls. When he finds even one pearl of great price, he gladly sells all he has to buy it.
235Unless you are converted and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven.
236In the resurrection they neither marry nor are given in marriage, but are as the angels of God in heaven.
237That which is born of the Spirit is spirit.
238Enter in at the narrow gate.
239He shall be great in the sight of the Lord. He shall not drink wine or strong drink; and he shall be filled with the Holy Spirit, even from his mother's womb.
240Thou shalt not bear false witness.
241then the devil comes and takes the word out of their hearts, lest they should believe and be saved.
242An evil man, out of the evil of his heart, brings forth that which is evil.
243Then the lord of the vineyard said, What shall I do? I will send my beloved son. They will respect him when they see him. But, when the husbandmen saw him, they said, This is the heir. Let us kill him so the inheritance will be ours. So they cast him out of the vineyard and killed him.
244I lay down my life for the sheep.
245John came to you in the way of righteousness and ye believed him not. But the publicans and the harlots believed him. And yet, even after you had seen, you did not repent that you believed him.
246For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ.
247Then Jesus said to them, Is it lawful to do good on the sabbath days, or to do evil? To save life, or to kill? But they remained silent.
248If God were your Father you would love me because I proceeded forth and came from God.
249Then Jesus said, Get thee hence, Satan, for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God and Him only shalt thou serve.
250Then He said to them, When I sent you without purse, and scrip, and shoes, did you lack anything? And they said, Nothing.
251But woe to him, through whom they come! It would be better for him that a millstone were hung around his neck and he be cast into the sea, than to have offended one of these little ones.
252That servant, who knew his lord's will but did not prepare or act according to his lord's will, shall be beaten with many stripes.
253If thy whole body is full of light, with no dark parts, the whole shall be full of light, and, like the bright shining of a candle, it gives off the light.
254Repentance for the forgiveness of sins should be preached
255Judge not that ye be not judged, for with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged.
256If ye do not forgive, neither will your Father which is in heaven forgive your trespasses.
257If you love me then rejoice, because I am going to my Father who is greater than I am.
258Instead, seek ye first the kingdom of God and His righteousness. Then all these things shall be added unto you.
259But many that are first shall be last; and the last shall be first.
260Many will say to me, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? In thy name have we not cast out devils? And, in thy name, have we not done many wonderful works? Then will I say to them, I never knew you. Depart from me, ye that work iniquity.
261Is it lawful on the sabbath days to do good, or to do evil? To save life, or to destroy it?
262I came into the world as a light so that whoever believes in me will not dwell in darkness.
263But the children of the kingdom shall be cast out into darkness.
264Likewise, the Son of man came not to be ministered to, but to minister, and to give His life as a ransom for many.
265Neither knows any man the Father except the Son.
266Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do.
267If thy hand offend thee, cut it off. It is better for thee to enter into life maimed than to have two hands and go into hell where the worm does not die and the fire is never quenched.
268When any one hears the word of the kingdom and does not understand it, the wicked one snatches away all that was sown in his heart. This is the one who received seed by the wayside.
269Jesus looked at them with anger and was grieved for the hardness of their hearts.
270They have closed their eyes.
271He who does not love me does not keep my words.
272It is enough for the disciple that he be as his master, and the servant as his lord.
273Cast out devils.
274Then Jesus, beholding him, loved him and said to him, You lack one thing: Go and sell whatever thou has and give the proceeds to the poor. Thou shall have treasure in heaven. Then come, take up the cross, and follow me. Upon hearing this the young man was sad and went away grieving because he had many possessions.
275O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, thou that killed the prophets, and stoned those sent to thee, how often would I have gathered thy children together, even as a hen gathers her chickens under her wings, and ye would not have it!
276But the hour comes, and is now, when the true worshippers will worship the Father in spirit and in truth.
277For, where your treasure is, there, also, will be your heart.
278Then the King shall say to those on His right, Come, ye blessed of my Father.
279Come ye after me and I will make you fishers of men.
280Because the gate and the way that leads to life is narrow, few find it.
281Then Jesus said to his host, When you make a dinner or a supper, do not call your friends, or your brethren, or kinsmen, or rich neighbors; lest they also invite you in return, and you incur an obligation.
282Now, not every one that says to me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven.
283I am the Good Shepherd. The good shepherd gives His life for the sheep.
284Once the master of the house is risen up, the door is closed. From outside you will knock at the door, saying, Lord, Lord, open the door to us; but He will answer, I do not know who you are.
285I am the gate for the sheep. All who came before me are thieves and robbers, but the sheep did not listen to them.
286But, if your eye is clouded with evil, your whole body is full of darkness.
287Even the Son of man came not to be ministered to, but to minister and to give His life as a ransom for many.
288Ask and it shall be given you.
289He spoke to them of the kingdom of God.
290Take no thought for the morrow, for the morrow shall take care of itself.
291It is an evil servant who says, My lord delays his coming so I shall take advantage..
292and, for a pretence, make long prayers. Therefore, you will receive the greater damnation.
293When you make a feast, call the poor, the maimed, the lame, the blind. You will be blessed because they cannot repay you; you will be repaid at the resurrection of the just.
294Jesus went into the temple and began to cast out those who sold and those who bought; saying to them, It is written: My house is the house of prayer, but ye have made it a den of thieves.
295Sell what you have and give alms.
296Then He began to upbraid the cities where most of His mighty works were done because they did not repent.
297One day He was teaching and the power of the Lord to heal was upon Him.
298But, of the day and the hour, no man knows, no, not the angels in heaven or the Son, but the Father only knows.
299Even if, on the outside, you appear righteous to others, inside you are full of hypocrisy and iniquity.
300They love the uppermost rooms at feasts and the chief seats in the synagogues.
301Provide yourselves with purses that do not wear out, a treasure in the heavens that does not fail, where no thief approaches, nor moth corrupts.
302Which is greater, he that sits at the table or he that serves? Is it not he that sits at the table? Yet I am among you as He that serves.
303The children of this world are better at dealing with their own generation than the children of light.
304And He said, A man had two sons. The younger of them said to his father, Father, give me the portion of my inheritance. The father gave him his portion and the younger son journeyed into a far country.
305Jesus watched as the rich men cast their gifts into the treasury. Then He noticed a poor widow casting in two small coins. He said to His disciples, this widow has cast in more than all the rest put together. The rich have given out of their abundance, but she, out of her poverty, cast in all the living she had.
306Therefore, I say unto you, Take no concern for your life: what ye shall eat, what ye shall drink; nor for your body: what ye shall put on.
307With the same measure that ye mete it shall be measured to you again.
308Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees. Hypocrites! You venture over land and sea for one proselyte.
309In your patience carefully guard your souls.
310To serve Him without fear, in holiness and righteousness, all the days of our life.
311The night comes when no man can work. As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world.
312Then you will say, We have eaten and drunk in thy presence, and thou has taught in our streets. But He shall say, I tell you, I do not know you; depart from me, all you workers of iniquity. 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, and you are left outside.
313You will know the truth and the truth will make you free.
314Then He said to them, Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature. He that believes and is baptized shall be saved; but he that does not believe shall be damned.
315the workman is worthy of his food.
316Seek not what ye shall eat or drink. Neither be of a doubtful mind. For these same things do all the nations of the world seek after, and your Father knows that ye have need of these things.
317And these are also the seed sown among the thorns of the cares of this world, the deceitfulness of riches, and the lusts of other things. All these thorns enter in, choke the word, and it becomes unfruitful.
318Jesus said to him, Get thee behind me, Satan. It is written: Thou shall worship the Lord thy God, and Him only shall thou serve.
319The publicans who came to him to be baptized also asked, Master, what shall we do? He said to them, Exact no more than that which is appointed you.
320Woe to you! You build shrines to the prophets and your fathers killed them. You bear witness that you sanction the deeds of your fathers, for they killed them and you build their shrines..
321If any man serves me, my Father will honor him.
322Seeing how Jesus was often surrounded by publicans and sinners who listened closely to His sayings, .
323Into whatever city or town ye enter, enquire who in it is worthy. Abide there until ye go on.
324He who believes in me will also do the works that I do. And greater works than these will he do also.
325He went throughout every city and village, preaching and showing
326And ye shall be hated by all men for my name's sake.
327If you were of the world, the world would love you as its own. But you are not of the world.
328It is from inside, out of the heart of men, that proceed: evil thoughts, adulteries, fornications, murders, thefts, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, lasciviousness, an evil eye, blasphemy, pride, foolishness. All these evil things come from within and defile the man.
329They will clear His kingdom of all that offends and does iniquity. They will cast it into a furnace.
330Blessed are the pure of heart for they shall see God.
331And why call me, Lord, Lord, and not do the things I say?
332Beware of false prophets who come to you in sheep's clothing but are inwardly ravenous wolves.
333For a good tree does not bring forth corrupt fruit; and a corrupt tree does not bring forth good fruit.
334This is my commandment, That you love one another as I have loved you.
335Jesus returned to Galilee in the power of the Spirit.
336Do good to those who hate you.
337He who finds his life will lose it. He who loses his life for my sake will find it.
338For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.
339He that has food, let him do likewise.
340O generation of vipers, how can ye, being evil, speak good things?
341Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees. Hypocrites! Ye are like whited sepulchres, which appear beautiful on the outside, but inside are full of dead men's bones and uncleanness.
342Then He said to His disciples, The harvest truly is plenteous, but the laborers are few.
343But woe to you who are rich! You have already received your consolation.
344He has sent me to heal the brokenhearted,
345But Jesus turned around, looked at His disciples, and rebuked Peter saying, Get behind me, Satan. Thou savor not the things of God, but the things of men.
346For every idle word that you speak, you will account for it in the day of judgment.
347The Son of man shall come in the glory of His Father, with His angels and shall reward every man according to his works.
348Let us eat and be merry for my son was dead and is alive again; he was lost, and is found. And they began to celebrate...
349Man shall not live by bread alone but by every word that proceeds out of the mouth of God.
350But be ye not called Rabbi.
351It came to pass in those days, Jesus went up into a mountain to pray.
352Those who have done evil will go to the resurrection of condemnation.
353He that despises me despises Him that sent me.
354How can you believe when you only value honors from each other and do not seek the honor that can come only from God?
355Be like those who wait for their lord to return from the wedding that, when he comes and knocks, they are ready to welcome him instantly.
356Jesus said, Verily I say, The publicans and the harlots enter the kingdom of God before you.
357Beware of the leaven of the Pharisees, which is hypocrisy.
358Jesus had compassion and touched their eyes
359But I say, Love your enemy.
360An evil man, out of the evil of the heart, brings forth evil things.
361He who believes in me, it is written in the scripture: out of his belly will flow rivers of living water. Jesus said this to signify the Spirit which those who believe in Him would receive.
362Yet, you do not enter in yourselves, and you do not allow others to attempt to enter.
363Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves.
364But whoever blasphemes against the Holy Spirit shall not be forgiven.
365Woe to you, when everyone speaks well of you, because the ancestors treated the false prophets in the same way.
366Ye blind guides who strain from your drink a gnat and swallow a camel.
367So, be ready because the Son of man comes at an hour when you think not.
368Wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction. Many go that way.
369Nothing is secret that shall not be made manifest and nothing is hidden that shall not be known and come to light.
370Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees. Hypocrites! Ye pay tithe of mint and anise and cummin, but ye have ignored the weightier matters of the law; judgment, mercy, and faith.
371Whoever humbles himself like this little child, is greatest in the kingdom of heaven.
372For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?
373And they will do these things to you because they have not known the Father nor me.
374But those things which come out of the mouth come from the heart. They defile the man because out of the heart come evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, and blasphemies. These are the things that defile a man.
375He answered, The kingdom of God does not come by observation. No one will say, Look here! or, look there! for,
376Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees. Hypocrites! Ye build the tombs for the prophets and garnish the sepulchres of the righteous. Ye say, If we had lived in the days of our ancestors, we would not have been partakers with them in the blood of the prophets. Be witnesses unto yourselves. Ye are the children of those who killed the prophets and ye fill up what your fathers measured out.
377The young man said, I have kept all these from my youth up. What do I yet lack?
378Finally, the one who received seed in the good ground is he who hears the word, understands it, and bears fruit. He brings forth a hundredfold or sixty or thirty.
379But is too much ensnared by things of this world and the deceitfulness of riches.
380Pray to the Lord so He will send forth laborers to His harvest.
381When they took hold of Jesus, all the disciples left Him and fled.
382The one that is unjust in the least, is unjust also in much.
383Other seed fell on good ground. It sprang up and bore fruit a hundredfold.
384I was a stranger and ye took me in.
385How is it that ye sought me? Do you not know that I must be about my Father's business?
386Inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the beginning of the world.
387Whoever shows contempt toward his brother shall be in danger of the council.
388He spoke this parable to those who trusted in their own righteousness, and despised others:
389But when your eye is evil, your body is full of darkness.
390Jesus went there to do mighty works. He marvelled at their unbelief and, because of this, could do little but lay His hands upon and heal a few of the sick and teach in the villages around the area.
391The kingdom of heaven is like a king who arranged a marriage feast for his son.
392He gave them power over unclean spirits.
393Moreover, when ye fast, be not as the hypocrites. They disfigure their faces and look sad so they may appear to others to fast. Verily, I say unto you, They have their reward.
394A sword shall pierce thy soul that the thoughts of many hearts may be revealed.
395If the Son of peace is there, your peace shall rest upon it; if not, it shall return to you.
396And if thine eye offend thee, pluck it out. It is better for thee to enter into the kingdom of God with one eye than to have two eyes to be cast into hell fire.
397Whoever does not bear his cross and come after me, cannot be my disciple.
398Jesus said, Take heed so you are not deceived, for many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ. Do not go after them.
399Whoever will save his life shall lose it.
400The father said to him, Son, you are always with me, and all that I have is yours.
401But I say, Do not resist evil.
402While you have light, believe in the light, so you may be called the children of light.
403Do not lay up treasures on earth, where moth and rust corrupts, and where thieves break in and steal them.
404What man is there among you who has one sheep and, if it falls into a pit on the sabbath day, will not lay hold of it and lift it out? How much more is a man worth than a sheep? Therefore, it is lawful to do good on the sabbath day.
405You shall be betrayed by parents, brethren, kinsfolks, and friends; some of you shall they cause to be put to death.
406And anyone who does not take up his cross and follow me, is not worthy of me.
407I am the true vine, and my Father is the husbandman. Every branch in me that does not bear fruit He takes away. Every branch that bears fruit, He prunes and purges so it may bring forth more fruit.
408There is no one who has left house, or parents, or brethren, or wife, or children, for the kingdom of God's sake, who shall not receive a great reward in this present time and in life everlasting.
409John bore record saying, I saw the Spirit descending from heaven like a dove and remain on Him. I knew Him not except the one who sent me to baptize told me, On whomever you see the Spirit descending and remaining, this is He who baptizes with the Holy Spirit. I saw Him, and now witness that this is the Son of God.
410And do not cast your pearls before swine lest they trample them under their feet and turn around and rend you.
411His lord cried, Thou wicked and slothful servant. Thou knew that I reap where I sow not and gather where I do not toil. Thou ought to have, at least, put my money out to the exchangers so, upon my return, I should have received my own money with interest. Take the talent and give it to the one who has ten talents.
412Whosoever will be great among you shall be your minister.
413Those who heard this were stricken by their own consciences. One by one, they went out, beginning with the eldest and down to the youngest.
414Lord, how often shall my brother sin against me and I forgive him? Until seven times? Jesus replied, I say unto thee, not until seven times but until seventy times seven.
415The disciple is not above his master; but everyone that is perfect shall be as his master.
416Anyone who has left house, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for my sake and the gospel's, shall receive a hundredfold now and in eternal life.
417Ye know that the princes of worldliness and ambition influence them. But it shall not be so among you.
418Instead be ye as perfect as your Father in heaven is perfect.
419To the one who uses his talent wisely, more shall be given, and he shall have abundance. But to the one who does not, any talent he has shall be taken away.
420Freely ye have received, freely give.
421Greater love has no man than that he lay down his life for his friends.
422Fear not, Mary, for thou has found favor with God.
423That was the true light, which enlightens everyone who comes into the world.
424And a follower came forward and asked, Lord, are there only a few that can be saved?
425How can you say to thy brother, Let me pull the mote out of thine eye when, behold, a beam is in thine own eye? Thou hypocrite.
426Jesus said to them, I beheld Satan as lightning falls from heaven.
427On your hands shall be the blood of all the righteous shed upon the earth, from the blood of righteous Abel to the blood of Zacharias, son of Barachias, whom ye slew between the temple and the altar. All these things shall come upon this generation.
428Know the commandments. Do not commit adultery. Do not kill. Do not steal. Do not bear false witness. Honor thy father and thy mother.
429Martha was concerned about the serving of the meal. She came to Jesus and said, Lord, do you not care that my sister has left me to serve alone? Tell her to help me. But Jesus said to her, Martha, Martha, thou art concerned and troubled about so many things.
430Jesus called together His twelve disciples and gave them power to cast out unclean spirits
431It will fall on you to give a testimony. Settle it in your hearts not to meditate beforehand about what ye shall answer. I will give you the words and wisdom which your adversaries shall not be able to refute or deny.
432The harvest truly is great, but the laborers are few.
433Does the servant deserve thanks because he did what he was obliged to do?
434Pray like this: Our Father who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy name.
435The one who is faithful in that which is least, is faithful also in much.
436I was in prison and ye came to me.
437O faithless and perverse generation, how long shall I be with you? How long shall I suffer you?
438And, finally, are those who are sown on good ground. In hearing the word, they receive it and bring forth fruit, some thirtyfold, some sixty, and some a hundredfold.
439The word you hear is not mine, but is from the Father who sent me.
440I will have mercy and not revenge because I have not come to call the righteous, but to call sinners to repentance.
441Beware of the scribes who like to walk in long robes, and love greetings in the markets, and the highest seats in the synagogues, and the chief rooms at feasts.
442Therefore, whatever ye have spoken in darkness shall be heard in the light; and that which ye have whispered shall be proclaimed upon the housetops.
443Seek and ye shall find.
444For John the Baptist came neither eating bread nor drinking wine; and ye say, He has a devil.
445Jesus said, Were there not ten cleansed? Where are the other nine?
446When ye come into a house, salute it. If the house is worthy, let your peace come upon it.
447Whoever shall not receive you or hear your words, when ye leave that house or city, shake the dust from your feet. Verily, it shall be more tolerable for the land of Sodom and Gomorrha in the day of judgment than for that city.
448Their ears are dull of hearing.
449He said to this servant, Out of thine own mouth will I judge thee, thou wicked servant. If you knew that I was a hard man, taking up what I laid not down, and reaping what I did not sow, why, then, did you not put the talents in the bank, that, on my return, I would get my own back with interest? Give this talent to the servant who gained ten more.
450Be ye therefore merciful as your Father also is merciful.
451He sent his servants forth to call those who were invited to the wedding but they did not come.
452Have the love of God in you.
453At a time when the servant is unaware, he shall be cut asunder and thrown out with the hypocrites. There shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
454Blessed are they that hear the word of God and keep it.
455The Holy Spirit shall tell you what to say on the spot.
456You entered not in yourselves but prevented any others from entering in.
457John bore witness of Him and cried, saying, This is He of whom I spoke. He who comes after me is above me because He existed before me. We have all received of His fullness, grace for grace.
458A good man, out of the good treasure of his heart, brings forth that which is good.
459What I say to you, I say to all, Watch.
460Do not marvel that I said, You must be born again.
461He said, The scribes and the Pharisees sit in Moses' place. Whatever they bid you to observe and do, ye shall observe and do.
462Bring thy son here. As the boy approached, the devil threw him down and tore him. Jesus rebuked the unclean spirit. He healed the child and delivered him again to his father.
463Judge not, and ye shall not be judged.
464As Jesus went along, He saw a great multitude. He was moved with compassion for them and He healed their sick.
465Jesus answered, Give ye them to eat.
466And into whatever city ye enter, from those who receive you, eat such things as are set before you. Heal the sick therein, and say to them, The kingdom of God is come near you.
467O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, which kills the prophets, and stones those who are sent to thee; how often would I have gathered thy children together, as a hen gathers her brood under her wings, and ye would not have it!
468So He could give eternal life to as many as you have given Him. This is life eternal, that they might know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent.
469Continue in my love.
470Do good to those who hate you.
471Do not judge by appearances, but judge by what is just.
472The people who stood looking on, and the rulers with them, derided Him, saying, He saved others.
473Whoever confesses me before men, the Son of man will also confess before the angels of God.
474The light of the body is the eye. If your eye is clear, your whole body is full of light.
475You seek me not because you saw the miracles, but because you ate of the loaves and were filled.
476In a little while the world will see me no more. But you will see me because I will live and you will live also.
477They came to Jerusalem and Jesus went into the temple. He cast out those who sold and bought in the temple. He overthrew the tables of the moneychangers and the seats of those who sold doves. He would not allow any man to carry any vessel through the temple.
478Then, likewise, a Levite came by and looked at him. He also passed by on the other side.
479His mercy is on them that fear Him from generation to generation.
480Whosoever will be your master shall be servant to all.
481For he that is greatest among you, let him be as the younger; and he that is chief, let him be as he that serves.
482Whoever exalts himself shall be abased; and he who humbles himself shall be exalted.
483And Jesus preached in the synagogues throughout Galilee, and cast out devils.
484Pray for those who spitefully use and persecute you.
485Woman, where are your accusers? Has no one condemned you? She said, No one, Lord. Then Jesus said to her, Neither do I condemn you. Go and sin no more.
486Then Jesus said, Such is the kingdom of God like a man who casts seed into the ground. He passes nights and days, and the seed springs up and grows, he knows not how. For the earth brings forth fruit of herself; first the blade, then the ear, and, after that, the full ear of corn. When the fruit is ripe, immediately he puts the sickle to it because the harvest is come.
487Then the servant who received the one talent came and said, Lord, I know that thou art a hard man who reaps where he has not sown and gathers where he has not toiled.
488Jesus said to him, Thou has answered right. Do this and you shall have life.
489Jesus called His disciples to Him and said, I have compassion on the multitude because they have been with me three days and they have nothing to eat.
490And He said to them, Full well ye reject the commandment of God in order to keep your own tradition.
491The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because
492I was afraid, so I hid thy talent in the earth. Here, now thou has what is thine.
493It is a faithful and wise servant who, his lord having given him charge over the household, prepares the foods in due season. Blessed is that servant who, when his lord arrives, shall find him doing so. He shall make the servant ruler over all his goods.
494From now on, thou shall catch men.
495Pray that you do not enter into temptation.
496He taught them as one with authority and not as the scribes.
497But when they deliver you up, do not worry how or what ye shall speak. It will be given you at the time ye speak because it is not ye that will speak, but the Spirit of your Father which speaks through you.
498To one who strikes you on the one cheek, offer also the other.
499Is not life more than food and the body more than raiment?
