TWO BLIND MEN CURED:
And when Jesus departed thence, two blind men followed him, crying,
and saying, Thou Son of David, have mercy on us. And when he
was come into the house, the blind men came to him: and Jesus
saith unto them, Believe ye that I am able to do this? They said
unto him, Yea, Lord. Then touched he their eyes, saying, According
to your faith be it unto you. And their eyes were opened; and
Jesus straitly charged them, saying, See that no man know it.
But they, when they were departed, spread abroad his fame in
all that country.
DUMB SPIRIT CAST OUT:
As they went out, behold, they brought to him a dumb man possessed
with a devil. And when the devil was cast out, the dumb spake:
and the multitudes marveled, saying, It was never so seen in
DEAF AND DUMB MAN CURED:
And again, departing from the coasts of Tyre and Sidon, he came
unto the sea of Galilee, through the midst of the coasts of Decap'olis.
And they bring unto him one that was deaf, and had an impediment
in his speech; and they beseech him to put his hand upon him.
And he took him aside from the multitude, and put his fingers
into his ears, and he spit, and touched his tongue; and looking
up to heaven, he sighed, and saith unto him, Eph'phatha, that
is, Be opened. And straightway his ears were opened, and the
string of his tongue was loosed, and he spake plain. And he charged
them that they should tell no man: but the more he charged them,
so much the more a great deal they published it; and were beyond
measure astonished, saying, He hath done all things well: he
maketh both the deaf to hear, and the dumb to speak.
BLIND MAN CURED:
And he cometh to Bethsai'da; and they bring a blind man unto
him, and besought him to touch him. And he took the blind man
by the hand, and led him out of the town; and when he had spit
on his eyes, and put his hands upon him, he asked him if he saw
aught. And he looked up, and said, I see men as trees, walking.
After that he put his hands again upon his eyes, and made him
look up; and he was restored, and saw every man clearly. And
he sent him away to his house, saying, Neither go into the town,
nor tell it to any in the town.
WIDOW'S SON RAISED TO LIFE AT NAIN:
And it came to pass the day after, that he went into a city called
Nain; and many of his disciples went with him, and much people.
Now when he came nigh to the gate of the city, behold, there
was a dead man carried out, the only son of his mother, and she
was a widow: and much people of the city was with her. And when
the Lord saw her, he had compassion on her, and said unto her,
Weep not. And he came and touched the bier: and they that bare
him stood still. And he said, Young man, I say unto thee, Arise.
And he that was dead sat up, and began to speak. And he delivered
him to his mother.And there came a fear on all: and they glorified
God, saying, That a great prophet is risen up among us; and,
That God hath visited his people. And this rumor of him went
forth throughout all Judea, and throughout all the region round
WOMAN'S INFIRMITY CURED:
And, behold, there was a woman which had a spirit of infirmity
eighteen years, and was bowed together, and could in no wise
lift up herself. And when Jesus saw her, he called her to him,
and said unto her, Woman, thou art loosed from thine infirmity.
And he laid his hands on her: and immediately she was made straight,
and glorified God. And the ruler of the synagogue answered with
indignation, because that Jesus had healed on the sabbath day,
and said unto the people, There are six days in which men ought
to work: in them therefore come and be healed, and not on the
sabbath day. The Lord then answered him, and said, Thou hypocrite,
doth not each one of you on the sabbath loose his ox or his ass
from the stall, and lead him away to watering? And ought not
this woman, being a daughter of Abraham, whom Satan hath bound,
lo, these eighteen years, be loosed from this bond on the sabbath
day? And when he had said these things, all his adversaries were
ashamed: and all the people rejoiced for all the glorious things
that were done by him.
And it came to pass, as he went into the house of one of the
chief Pharisees to eat bread on the sabbath day, that they watched
him. And, behold, there was a certain man before him which had
the dropsy. And Jesus answering spake unto the lawyers and Pharisees,
saying, Is it lawful to heal on the sabbath day? And they held
their peace. And he took him, and healed him, and let him go;
and answered them, saying, Which of you shall have an ass or
an ox fallen into a pit, and will not straightway pull him out
on the sabbath day? And they could not answer him again to these
TEN LEPERS CLEANSED:
And it came to pass, as he went to Jerusalem, that he passed
through the midst of Samaria and Galilee. And as he entered into
a certain village, there met him ten men that were lepers, which
stood afar off: and they lifted up their voices, and said, Jesus,
Master, have mercy on us. And when he saw them, he said unto
them, Go show yourselves unto the priests. And it came to pass,
that, as they went, they were cleansed. And one of them, when
he saw that he was healed, turned back, and with a loud voice
glorified God, and fell down on his face at his feet, giving
him thanks: and he was a Samaritan. And Jesus answering said,
Were there not ten cleansed? but where are the nine? There are
not found that returned to give glory to God, save this stranger.
And he said unto him, Arise, go thy way: thy faith hath made
THE EAR OF MALCHUS HEALED:
And one of them smote the servant of the high priest, and cut
off his right ear. And Jesus answered and said, Suffer ye thus
far. And he touched his ear, and healed him. Then Jesus said
unto the chief priests, and captains of the temple, and the elders,
which were come to him, Be ye come out, as against a thief, with
swords and staves? When I was daily with you in the temple, ye
stretched forth no hands against me: but this is your hour, and
the power of darkness.
WATER MADE WINE AT CANA:
And the third day there was a marriage in Cana of Galilee; and
the mother of Jesus was there: and both Jesus was called, and
his disciples, to the marriage. And when they wanted wine, the
mother of Jesus saith unto him, They have no wine. Jesus saith
unto her, Woman, what have I to do with thee? mine hour is not
yet come. His mother saith unto the servants, Whatsoever he saith
unto you, do it. And there were set there six waterpots of stone,
after the manner of the purifying of the Jews, containing two
or three firkins apiece. Jesus saith unto them, Fill the waterpots
with water. And they filled them up to the brim. And he saith
unto them, Draw out now, and bear unto the governor of the feast.
And they bare it. When the ruler of the feast had tasted the
water that was made wine, and knew not whence it was, (but the
servants which drew the water knew,) the governor of the feast
called the bridegroom, and saith unto him, Every man at the beginning
doth set forth good wine; and when men have well drunk, then
that which is worse: but thou hast kept the good wine until now.
This beginning of miracles did Jesus in Cana of Galilee, and
manifested forth his glory; and his disciples believed on him.
NOBLEMAN'S SON CURED OF FEVER:
So Jesus came again into Cana of Galilee, where he made the water
wine. Joh. 2.1-11 And there was a certain nobleman, whose son
was sick at Caper'na-um. When he heard that Jesus was come out
of Judea into Galilee, he went unto him, and besought him that
he would come down, and heal his son: for he was at the point
of death. Then said Jesus unto him, Except ye see signs and wonders,
ye will not believe. The nobleman saith unto him, Sir, come down
ere my child die. Jesus saith unto him, Go thy way; thy son liveth.
And the man believed the word that Jesus had spoken unto him,
and he went his way. And as he was now going down, his servants
met him, and told him, saying, Thy son liveth. Then inquired
he of them the hour when he began to amend. And they said unto
him, Yesterday at the seventh hour the fever left him. So the
father knew that it was at the same hour, in the which Jesus
said unto him, Thy son liveth: and himself believed, and his
whole house. This is again the second miracle that Jesus did,
when he was come out of Judea into Galilee.
THE HEALING AT THE POOL:
After this there was a feast of the Jews; and Jesus went up to
Jerusalem. Now there is at Jerusalem by the sheep market a pool,
which is called in the Hebrew tongue Bethes'da, having five porches.
In these lay a great multitude of impotent folk, of blind, halt,
withered, waiting for the moving of the water. For an angel went
down at a certain season into the pool, and troubled the water:
whosoever then first after the troubling of the water stepped
in was made whole of whatsoever disease he had. And a certain
man was there, which had an infirmity thirty and eight years.
When Jesus saw him lie, and knew that he had been now a long
time in that case, he saith unto him, Wilt thou be made whole?
The impotent man answered him, Sir, I have no man, when the water
is troubled, to put me into the pool: but while I am coming,
another steppeth down before me. Jesus saith unto him, Rise,
take up thy bed, and walk. And immediately the man was made whole,
and took up his bed, and walked: and on the same day was the
sabbath. The Jews therefore said unto him that was cured, It
is the sabbath day: it is not lawful for thee to carry thy bed.
He answered them, He that made me whole, the same said unto me,
Take up thy bed, and walk. Then asked they him, What man is that
which said unto thee, Take up thy bed, and walk? And he that
was healed wist not who it was: for Jesus had conveyed himself
away, a multitude being in that place. Afterward Jesus findeth
him in the temple, and said unto him, Behold, thou art made whole:
sin no more, lest a worse thing come unto thee. The man departed,
and told the Jews that it was Jesus, which had made him whole.
And therefore did the Jews persecute Jesus, and sought to slay
him, because he had done these things on the sabbath day. But
Jesus answered them, My Father worketh hitherto, and I work.
Therefore the Jews sought the more to kill him, because he not
only had broken the sabbath, but said also that God was his Father,
making himself equal with God.
MAN BORN BLIND, CURED AT JERUSALEM
And as Jesus passed by, he saw a man which was blind from his
birth. And his disciples asked him, saying, Master, who did sin,
this man, or his parents, that he was born blind? Jesus answered,
Neither hath this man sinned, nor his parents: but that the works
of God should be made manifest in him. I must work the works
of him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh, when
no man can work.As long as I am in the world, I am the light
of the world. When he had thus spoken, he spat on the ground,
and made clay of the spittle, and he anointed the eyes of the
blind man with the clay,
and said unto him, Go, wash in the pool of Silo'am, (which is
by interpretation, Sent.) He went his way therefore, and washed,
and came seeing. The neighbors therefore, and they which before
had seen him that he was blind, said, Is not this he that sat
and begged? Some said, This is he: others said, He is like him:
but he said, I am he. Therefore said they unto him, How were
thine eyes opened? He answered and said, A man that is called
Jesus made clay, and anointed mine eyes, and said unto me, Go
to the pool of Silo'am, and wash: and I went and washed, and
I received sight. Then said they unto him, Where is he? He said,
I know not.
LAZARUS RAISED FROM THE DEAD AT BETHANY
Jesus therefore again groaning in himself cometh to the grave.
It was a cave, and a stone lay upon it. Jesus said, Take ye away
the stone. Martha, the sister of him that was dead, saith unto
him, Lord, by this time he stinketh: for he hath been dead four
days. Jesus saith unto her, Said I not unto thee, that, if thou
wouldest believe, thou shouldest see the glory of God? Then they
took away the stone from the place where the dead was laid. And
Jesus lifted up his eyes, and said, Father, I thank thee that
thou hast heard me. And I knew that thou hearest me always: but
because of the people which stand by I said it, that they may
believe that thou hast sent me. And when he thus had spoken,
he cried with a loud voice, Lazarus, come forth. And he that
was dead came forth, bound hand and foot with graveclothes; and
his face was bound about with a napkin. Jesus saith unto them,
Loose him, and let him go.
DRAUGHT OF 153 FISHES
After these things Jesus showed himself again to the disciples
at the sea of Tibe'ri-as; and on this wise showed he himself.
There were together Simon Peter, and Thomas called Did'ymus,
and Nathan'a-el of Cana in Galilee, and the sons of Zeb'edee,
and two other of his disciples. Simon Peter saith unto them,
I go a fishing. They say unto him, We also go with thee. They
went forth, and entered into a ship immediately; and that night
they caught nothing. But when the morning was now come, Jesus
stood on the shore; but the disciples knew not that it was Jesus.
Then Jesus saith unto them, Children, have ye any meat? They
answered him, No. And he said unto them, Cast the net on the
right side of the ship, and ye shall find. They cast therefore,
and now they were not able to draw it for the multitude of fishes.
Therefore that disciple whom Jesus loved saith unto Peter, It
is the Lord. Now when Simon Peter heard that it was the Lord,
he girt his fisher's coat unto him, (for he was naked,) and did
cast himself into the sea. And the other disciples came in a
little ship, (for they were not far from land, but as it were
two hundred cubits,) dragging the net with fishes. As soon then
as they were come to land, they saw a fire of coals there, and
fish laid thereon, and bread. Jesus saith unto them, Bring of
the fish which ye have now caught. Simon Peter went up, and drew
the net to land full of great fishes, a hundred and fifty and
three: and for all there were so many, yet was not the net broken.
Jesus saith unto them, Come and dine. And none of the disciples
durst ask him, Who art thou? knowing that it was the Lord. Jesus
then cometh, and taketh bread, and giveth them, and fish likewise.
This is now the third time that Jesus showed himself to his disciples,
after that he was risen from the dead.
FAITH OF A CANAANITE WOMAN
Then Jesus went thence, and departed into the coasts of Tyre
and Sidon. And, behold, a woman of Canaan came out of the same
coasts, and cried unto him, saying, Have mercy on me, O Lord,
thou Son of David; my daughter is grievously vexed with a devil.
But he answered her not a word. And his disciples came and besought
him, saying, Send her away; for she crieth after us. But he answered
and said, I am not sent but unto the lost sheep of the house
of Israel. Then came she and worshipped him, saying, Lord, help
me. But he answered and said, It is not meet to take the children's
bread, and to cast it to dogs. And she said, Truth, Lord: yet
the dogs eat of the crumbs which fall from their masters' table.
Then Jesus answered and said unto her, O woman, great is thy
faith: be it unto thee even as thou wilt. And her daughter was
made whole from that very hour.
THE FOUR THOUSAND FED
In those days the multitude being very great, and having nothing
to eat, Jesus called his disciples unto him, and saith unto them,
I have compassion on the multitude, because they have now been
with me three days, and have nothing to eat: and if I send them
away fasting to their own houses, they will faint by the way:
for divers of them came from far. And his disciples answered
him, From whence can a man satisfy these men with bread here
in the wilderness? And he asked them, How many loaves have ye?
And they said, Seven. And he commanded the people to sit down
on the ground: and he took the seven loaves, and gave thanks,
and brake, and gave to his disciples to set before them; and
they did set them before the people. And they had a few small
fishes: and he blessed, and commanded to set them also before
them. So they did eat, and were filled: and they took up of the
broken meat that was left seven baskets. And they that had eaten
were about four thousand: and he sent them away. And straightway
he entered into a ship with his disciples, and came into the
parts of Dalmanu'tha.
THE CENTURION'S PALSIED SERVANT CURED
Now when he had ended all his sayings in the audience of the
people, he entered into Caper'na-um. And a certain centurion's
servant, who was dear unto him, was sick, and ready to die. And
when he heard of Jesus, he sent unto him the elders of the Jews,
beseeching him that he would come and heal his servant. And when
they came to Jesus, they besought him instantly, saying, That
he was worthy for whom he should do this: for he loveth our nation,
and he hath built us a synagogue. Then Jesus went with them.
And when he was now not far from the house, the centurion sent
friends to him, saying unto him, Lord, trouble not thyself; for
I am not worthy that thou shouldest enter under my roof: wherefore
neither thought I myself worthy to come unto thee: but say in
a word, and my servant shall be healed. For I also am a man set
under authority, having under me soldiers, and I say unto one,
Go, and he goeth; and to another, Come, and he cometh; and to
my servant, Do this, and he doeth it. When Jesus heard these
things, he marveled at him, and turned him about, and said unto
the people that followed him, I say unto you, I have not found
so great faith, no, not in Israel. And they that were sent, returning
to the house, found the servant whole that had been sick.
MAN WITH AN UNCLEAN SPIRIT CURED IN THE SYNOGOGUE
And in the synagogue there was a man, which had a spirit of an
unclean devil, and cried out with a loud voice, saying, Let us
alone; what have we to do with thee, thou Jesus of Nazareth?
art thou come to destroy us? I know thee who thou art; the Holy
One of God. And Jesus rebuked him, saying, Hold thy peace, and
come out of him. And when the devil had thrown him in the midst,
he came out of him, and hurt him not. And they were all amazed,
and spake among themselves, saying, What a word is this! for
with authority and power he commandeth the unclean spirits, and
they come out. And the fame of him went out into every place
of the country round about.
BLIND AND DUMB DEMONIAC CURED
Then was brought unto him one possessed with a devil, blind,
and dumb: and he healed him, insomuch that the blind and dumb
both spake and saw. And all the people were amazed, and said,
Is not this the Son of David? But when the Pharisees heard it,
they said, This fellow doth not cast out devils, but by Beel'zebub
the prince of the devils. And Jesus knew their thoughts, and
said unto them, Every kingdom divided against itself is brought
to desolation; and every city or house divided against itself
shall not stand: and if Satan cast out Satan, he is divided against
himself; how shall then his kingdom stand? And if I by Beel'zebub
cast out devils, by whom do your children cast them out? therefore
they shall be your judges. But if I cast out devils by the Spirit
of God, then the kingdom of God is come unto you. Or else, how
can one enter into a strong man's house, and spoil his goods,
except he first bind the strong man? and then he will spoil his
house. He that is not with me is against me; and he that gathereth
not with me scattereth abroad. Wherefore I say unto you, All
manner of sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven unto men: but the
blasphemy against the Holy Ghost shall not be forgiven unto men.
And whosoever speaketh a word against the Son of man, it shall
be forgiven him: but whosoever speaketh against the Holy Ghost,
it shall not be forgiven him, neither in this world, neither
in the world to come.
PETER'S MOTHER-IN-LAW CURED
And when Jesus was come into Peter's house, he saw his wife's
mother laid, and sick of a fever. And he touched her hand, and
the fever left her: and she arose, and ministered unto them.
When the even was come, they brought unto him many that were
possessed with devils: and he cast out the spirits with his word,
and healed all that were sick: that it might be fulfilled which
was spoken by Isaiah the prophet, saying, Himself took our infirmities,
and bare our sicknesses.
THE TEMPEST STILLED
Now it came to pass on a certain day, that he went into a ship
with his disciples: and he said unto them, Let us go over unto
the other side of the lake. And they launched forth. But as they
sailed, he fell asleep: and there came down a storm of wind on
the lake; and they were filled with water, and were in jeopardy.
And they came to him, and awoke him, saying, Master, Master,
we perish. Then he arose, and rebuked the wind and the raging
of the water: and they ceased, and there was a calm. And he said
unto them, Where is your faith? And they being afraid wondered,
saying one to another, What manner of man is this! for he commandeth
even the winds and water, and they obey him.
THE DEMONIACS CURED
And when he was come to the other side into the country of the
Ger'gesenes, there met him two possessed with devils, coming
out of the tombs, exceeding fierce, so that no man might pass
by that way. And, behold, they cried out, saying, What have we
to do with thee, Jesus, thou Son of God? art thou come hither
to torment us before the time? And there was a good way off from
them a herd of many swine feeding. So the devils besought him,
saying, If thou cast us out, suffer us to go away into the herd
of swine. And he said unto them, Go. And when they were come
out, they went into the herd of swine: and, behold, the whole
herd of swine ran violently down a steep place into the sea,
and perished in the waters. And they that kept them fled, and
went their ways into the city, and told every thing, and what
was befallen to the possessed of the devils. And, behold, the
whole city came out to meet Jesus: and when they saw him, they
besought him that he would depart out of their coasts.
THE LEPER CURED
And there came a leper to him, beseeching him, and kneeling down
to him, and saying unto him, If thou wilt, thou canst make me
clean. And Jesus, moved with compassion, put forth his hand,
and touched him, and saith unto him, I will; be thou clean. And
as soon as he had spoken, immediately the leprosy departed from
him, and he was cleansed. And he straitly charged him, and forthwith
sent him away; and saith unto him, See thou say nothing to any
man: but go thy way, show thyself to the priest, and offer for
thy cleansing those things which Moses commanded, Lev. 14.1-32
for a testimony unto them. But he went out, and began to publish
it much, and to blaze abroad the matter, insomuch that Jesus
could no more openly enter into the city, but was without in
desert places: and they came to him from every quarter.
THE DAUGHTER OF JAIRUS RAISED TO LIFE / AND A WOMAN 'S ISSUE
OF BLOOD CURED
While he spake these things unto them, behold, there came a certain
ruler, and worshipped him, saying, My daughter is even now dead:
but come and lay thy hand upon her, and she shall live. And Jesus
arose, and followed him, and so did his disciples. And, behold,
a woman, which was diseased with an issue of blood twelve years,
came behind him, and touched the hem of his garment: for she
said within herself, If I may but touch his garment, I shall
be whole. But Jesus turned him about, and when he saw her, he
said, Daughter, be of good comfort; thy faith hath made thee
whole. And the woman was made whole from that hour. And when
Jesus came into the ruler's house, and saw the minstrels and
the people making a noise, he said unto them, Give place: for
the maid is not dead, but sleepeth. And they laughed him to scorn.
But when the people were put forth, he went in, and took her
by the hand, and the maid arose. And the fame hereof went abroad
into all that land.
JESUS HEALS A PARALYTIC MAN
And it came to pass on a certain day, as he was teaching, that
there were Pharisees and doctors of the law sitting by, which
were come out of every town of Galilee, and Judea, and Jerusalem:
and the power of the Lord was present to heal them. And, behold,
men brought in a bed a man which was taken with a palsy: and
they sought means to bring him in, and to lay him before him.
And when they could not find by what way they might bring him
in because of the multitude, they went upon the housetop, and
let him down through the tiling with his couch into the midst
And when he saw their faith, he said unto him, Man, thy sins
are forgiven thee. And the scribes and the Pharisees began to
reason, saying, Who is this which speaketh blasphemies? Who can
forgive sins, but God alone? But when Jesus perceived their thoughts,
he answering said unto them, What reason ye in your hearts? whether
is easier, to say, Thy sins be forgiven thee; or to say, Rise
up and walk? But that ye may know that the Son of man hath power
upon earth to forgive sins, (he said unto the sick of the palsy,)
I say unto thee, Arise, and take up thy couch, and go into thine
house. And immediately he rose up before them, and took up that
whereon he lay, and departed to his own house, glorifying God.
And they were all amazed, and they glorified God, and were filled
with fear, saying, We have seen strange things today.
JESUS CURES THE MAN WITH THE WITHERED HAND
And he entered again into the synagogue; and there was a man
there which had a withered hand. And they watched him, whether
he would heal him on the sabbath day; that they might accuse
him. And he saith unto the man which had the withered hand, Stand
forth. And he saith unto them, Is it lawful to do good on the
sabbath days, or to do evil? to save life, or to kill? But they
held their peace. And when he had looked round about on them
with anger, being grieved for the hardness of their hearts, he
saith unto the man, Stretch forth thine hand. And he stretched
it out: and his hand was restored whole as the other. And the
Pharisees went forth, and straightway took counsel with the Hero'di-ans
against him, how they might destroy him.
JESUS CASTS OUT THE DEMON FROM A BOY
And it came to pass, that on the next day, when they were come
down from the hill, much people met him. And, behold, a man of
the company cried out, saying, Master, I beseech thee, look upon
my son; for he is mine only child.
And, lo, a spirit taketh him, and he suddenly crieth out; and
it teareth him that he foameth again, and bruising him, hardly
departeth from him. And I besought thy disciples to cast him
out; and they could not. And Jesus answering said, O faithless
and perverse generation, how long shall I be with you, and suffer
you? Bring thy son hither. And as he was yet a coming, the devil
threw him down, and tare him. And Jesus rebuked the unclean spirit,
and healed the child, and delivered him again to his father.
And they were all amazed at the mighty power of God.
TWO BLIND MEN CURED / RECEIVE SIGHT
And as they departed from Jericho, a great multitude followed
him. And, behold, two blind men sitting by the wayside, when
they heard that Jesus passed by, cried out, saying, Have mercy
on us, O Lord, thou Son of David.
And the multitude rebuked them, because they should hold their
peace: but they cried the more, saying, Have mercy on us, O Lord,
thou Son of David. And Jesus stood still, and called them, and
said, What will ye that I shall do unto you?
They say unto him, Lord, that our eyes may be opened.
So Jesus had compassion on them, and touched their eyes: and
immediately their eyes received sight, and they followed him.
JESUS WALKS ON THE WATER / SEA
And straightway he constrained his disciples to get into the
ship, and to go to the other side before unto Bethsai'da, while
he sent away the people. And when he had sent them away, he departed
into a mountain to pray. And when even was come, the ship was
in the midst of the sea, and he alone on the land. And he saw
them toiling in rowing; for the wind was contrary unto them:
and about the fourth watch of the night he cometh unto them,
walking upon the sea, and would have passed by them. But when
they saw him walking upon the sea, they supposed it had been
a spirit, and cried out: for they all saw him, and were troubled.
And immediately he talked with them, and saith unto them, Be
of good cheer: it is I; be not afraid. And he went up unto them
into the ship; and the wind ceased: and they were sore amazed
in themselves beyond measure, and wondered. For they considered
not the miracle of the loaves; for their heart was hardened.
THE FEEDING OF THE FIVE THOUSAND
After these things Jesus went over the sea of Galilee, which
is the sea of Tibe'ri-as. And a great multitude followed him,
because they saw his miracles which he did on them that were
diseased. And Jesus went up into a mountain, and there he sat
with his disciples. And the passover, a feast of the Jews, was
nigh. When Jesus then lifted up his eyes, and saw a great company
come unto him, he saith unto Philip, Whence shall we buy bread,
that these may eat? And this he said to prove him: for he himself
knew what he would do. Philip answered him, Two hundred pennyworth
of bread is not sufficient for them, that every one of them may
take a little. One of his disciples, Andrew, Simon Peter's brother,
saith unto him, There is a lad here, which hath five barley loaves,
and two small fishes: but what are they among so many? And Jesus
said, Make the men sit down. Now there was much grass in the
place. So the men sat down, in number about five thousand. And
Jesus took the loaves; and when he had given thanks, he distributed
to the disciples, and the disciples to them that were set down;
and likewise of the fishes as much as they would. When they were
filled, he said unto his disciples, Gather up the fragments that
remain, that nothing be lost. Therefore they gathered them together,
and filled twelve baskets with the fragments of the five barley
loaves, which remained over and above unto them that had eaten.
Then those men, when they had seen the miracle that Jesus did,
said, This is of a truth that Prophet that should come into the
world. When Jesus therefore perceived that they would come and
take him by force, to make him a king, he departed again into
a mountain himself alone.
Riches profit not in the day of wrath: but righteousness delivereth
Pride goeth before destruction, and a haughty spirit before
He that loveth pleasure [shall be] a poor man: he that loveth
wine and oil shall not be rich.
Labour not to be rich: cease from thine own wisdom. Wilt thou
set thine eyes upon that which is not? for [riches] certainly
make themselves wings; they fly away as an eagle toward heaven.
Two [things] have I required of thee; deny me [them] not before
I die: Remove far from me vanity and lies: give me neither poverty
nor riches; feed me with food convenient for me: Lest I be full,
and deny [thee], and say, Who [is] the Lord? or lest I be poor,
and steal, and take the name of my God [in vain].
He that loveth silver shall not be satisfied with silver;
nor he that loveth abundance with increase: this [is] also vanity.
When goods increase, they are increased that eat them: and what
good [is there] to the owners thereof, saving the beholding [of
them] with their eyes? The sleep of a labouring man [is] sweet,
whether he eat little or much: but the abundance of the rich
will not suffer him to sleep.
Jesus said unto him, It is written again, Thou shalt not tempt
the Lord thy God. Again, the devil taketh him up into an exceeding
high mountain, and sheweth him all the kingdoms of the world,
and the glory of them; And saith unto him, All these things will
I give thee, if thou wilt fall down and worship me. Then saith
Jesus unto him, Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, Thou
shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.
Then the devil leaveth him, and behold, angels came and ministered
Take heed that ye do not your alms before men, to be seen
of them: otherwise ye have no reward of your Father which is
in heaven. Therefore when thou doest thine alms, do not sound
a trumpet before thee, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues
and in the streets, that they may have glory of men. Verily I
say unto you, They have their reward. But when thou doest alms,
let not thy left hand know what thy right hand doeth: that thine
alms may be in secret: and thy Father which seeth in secret himself
shall reward thee openly.
But when thou doest alms, let not thy left hand know what
thy right hand doeth: That thine alms may be in secret: and thy
Father which seeth in secret himself shall reward thee openly.
Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth
and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal:
but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither
moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through
nor steal: for where your treasure is, there will your heart
No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the
one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and
despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.
Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life,
what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body,
what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the
body than raiment? Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow
not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly
Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they?
For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world,
and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for
Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what
ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; not yet for your body,
what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the
body than raiment? Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow
not, neither do they reap, not gather into barns; yet your heavenly
Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they? Which
of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature?
And why take ye thought for raiment: Consider the lilies of the
field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin: And
yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not
arrayed like one of these. Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass
of the field, which today is, and tomorrow is cast into the oven,
shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith? Therefore
take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? Or, What shall we
drink? Or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed? (For after all these
things do the Gentiles seek) for your heavenly Father knoweth
that ye have need of all these things. But seek ye first the
kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall
be added unto you. Take therefore no thought for the morrow:
for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient
unto the day is the evil thereof.

And when he had called the people [unto him] with his disciples
also, he said unto them, Whosoever will come after me, let him
deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me. For whosoever
will save his life shall lose it; but whosoever shall lose his
life for my sake and the gospel's, the same shall save it. For
what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world,
and lose his own soul? Or what shall a man give in exchange for
his soul? Whosoever therefore shall be ashamed of me and of my
words in this adulterous and sinful generation; of him also shall
the Son of man be ashamed, when he cometh in the glory of his
Father with the holy angels.
Then Jesus beholding him loved him, and said unto him, One
thing thou lackest: go thy way, sell whatsoever thou hast, and
give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and
come, take up the cross, and follow me. And he was sad at that
saying, and went away grieved: for he had great possessions.
And Jesus looked round about, and saith unto his disciples, How
hardly shall they that have riches enter into the kingdom of
God! And the disciples were astonished at his words. But Jesus
answereth again, and saith unto them, Children, how hard is it
for them that trust in riches to enter into the kingdom of God!
It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than
for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God.

It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than
for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God. And they were
astonished out of measure, saying among themselves, Who then
can be saved? And Jesus looking upon them saith, With men [it
is] impossible, but not with God: for with God all things are
For ye know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that, though
he was rich, yet for your sakes he became poor, that ye through
his poverty might be rich.
2 Corinthians 8:9
But godliness with contentment is great gain. For we brought
nothing into [this] world, [and it is] certain we can carry nothing
out. And having food and raiment let us be therewith content.
1 Timothy 6:6-8
For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while
some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced
themselves through with many sorrows. But thou, O man of God,
flee these things; and follow after righteousness, godliness,
faith, love, patience, meekness.
1 Timothy 6:10-11
As for the rich in this world, charge them not to be haughty,
nor to set their hopes on uncertain riches but on God who richly
furnishes us with everything to enjoy. They are to do good, to
be rich in good deeds, liberal and generous, thus laying up for
themselves a good foundation for the future, so that they may
take hold of the life which is life indeed.
1 Timothy 6:17-19
And the angel of the LORD said unto her, Behold, thou art
with child, and shalt bear a son, and shalt call his name Ish'ma-el;
8 because the LORD hath heard thy affliction.
And he will be a wild man; his hand will be against every man,
and every man's hand against him: and he shall dwell in the presence
of all his brethren.
And the child grew, and was weaned: and Abraham made a great
feast the same day that Isaac was weaned.
And Sarah saw the son of Hagar the Egyptian, which she had borne
unto Abraham, mocking.
Wherefore she said unto Abraham, Cast out this bondwoman and
her son: for the son of this bondwoman shall not be heir with
my son, even with Isaac.
And the thing was very grievous in Abraham's sight because of
And God said unto Abraham, Let it not be grievous in thy sight
because of the lad, and because of thy bondwoman; in all that
Sarah hath said unto thee, hearken unto her voice; for in Isaac
shall thy seed be called.
And also of the son of the bondwoman will I make a nation, because
he is thy seed.
And Abraham rose up early in the morning, and took bread, and
a bottle of water, and gave it unto Hagar, putting it on her
shoulder, and the child, and sent her away: and she departed,
and wandered in the wilderness of Beersheba.
And the water was spent in the bottle, and she cast the child
under one of the shrubs.
And she went, and sat her down over against him a good way off,
as it were a bowshot: for she said, Let me not see the death
of the child. And she sat over against him, and lifted up her
voice, and wept.
And God heard the voice of the lad; and the angel of God called
to Hagar out of heaven, and said unto her, What aileth thee,
Hagar? fear not; for God hath heard the voice of the lad where
Arise, lift up the lad, and hold him in thine hand; for I will
make him a great nation.
And God opened her eyes, and she saw a well of water; and she
went, and filled the bottle with water, and gave the lad drink.
And God was with the lad; and he grew, and dwelt in the wilderness,
and became an archer.
And he dwelt in the wilderness of Paran: and his mother took
him a wife out of the land of Egypt.
Now these are the generations of Ish'ma-el, Abraham's son,
whom Hagar the Egyptian, Sarah's handmaid, bare unto Abraham:
and these are the names of the sons of Ish'ma-el, by their names,
according to their generations: the firstborn of Ish'ma-el, Neba'joth;
and Kedar, and Ad'beel, and Mibsam,
and Mishma, and Dumah, and Massa,
Hadar, and Tema, Jetur, Naphish, and Ked'emah:
these are the sons of Ish'ma-el, and these are their names, by
their towns, and by their castles; twelve princes according to
And these are the years of the life of Ish'ma-el, a hundred and
thirty and seven years: and he gave up the ghost and died, and
was gathered unto his people.
And they dwelt from Hav'ilah unto Shur, that is before Egypt,
as thou goest toward Assyria: and he died in the presence of
all his brethren.
And it came to pass, when Joseph was come unto his brethren,
that they stripped Joseph out of his coat, his coat of many colors
that was on him;
and they took him, and cast him into a pit: and the pit was empty,
there was no water in it.
And they sat down to eat bread: and they lifted up their eyes
and looked, and, behold, a company of Ish'maelites came from
Gil'e-ad, with their camels bearing spicery and balm and myrrh,
going to carry it down to Egypt.
And Judah said unto his brethren, What profit is it if we slay
our brother, and conceal his blood?
Come, and let us sell him to the Ish'maelites, and let not our
hand be upon him; for he is our brother and our flesh: and his
brethren were content.
Then there passed by Mid'i-anites merchantmen; and they drew
and lifted up Joseph out of the pit, and sold Joseph to the Ish'maelites
for twenty pieces of silver: and they brought Joseph into Egypt.
And God helped him against the Philistines, and against the
Arabians that dwelt in Gurba'al, and the Me'hunim.
2 Chronicles 26:7
So I came to Jerusalem, and was there three days.
And I arose in the night, I and some few men with me; neither
told I any man what my God had put in my heart to do at Jerusalem:
neither was there any beast with me, save the beast that I rode
And I went out by night by the gate of the valley, even before
the dragon well, and to the dung port, and viewed the walls of
Jerusalem, which were broken down, and the gates thereof were
consumed with fire.
Then I went on to the gate of the fountain, and to the king's
pool: but there was no place for the beast that was under me
Then went I up in the night by the brook, and viewed the wall,
and turned back, and entered by the gate of the valley, and so
And the rulers knew not whither I went, or what I did; neither
had I as yet told it to the Jews, nor to the priests, nor to
the nobles, nor to the rulers, nor to the rest that did the work.
Then said I unto them, Ye see the distress that we are in, how
Jerusalem lieth waste, and the gates thereof are burned with
fire: come, and let us build up the wall of Jerusalem, that we
be no more a reproach.
Then I told them of the hand of my God which was good upon me;
as also the king's words that he had spoken unto me. And they
said, Let us rise up and build. So they strengthened their hands
for this good work.
But when Sanbal'lat the Hor'onite, and Tobi'ah the servant, the
Ammonite, and Geshem the Arabian, heard it, they laughed us to
scorn, and despised us, and said, What is this thing that ye
do? will ye rebel against the king?
Then answered I them, and said unto them, The God of heaven,
he will prosper us; therefore we his servants will arise and
build: but ye have no portion, nor right, nor memorial, in Jerusalem.
But it came to pass, that when Sanbal'lat heard that we builded
the wall, he was wroth, and took great indignation, and mocked
And he spake before his brethren and the army of Samaria, and
said, What do these feeble Jews? will they fortify themselves?
will they sacrifice? will they make an end in a day? will they
revive the stones out of the heaps of the rubbish which are burned?
Now Tobi'ah the Ammonite was by him, and he said, Even that which
they build, if a fox go up, he shall even break down their stone
Hear, O our God; for we are despised: and turn their reproach
upon their own head, and give them for a prey in the land of
and cover not their iniquity, and let not their sin be blotted
out from before thee: for they have provoked thee to anger before
So built we the wall; and all the wall was joined together unto
the half thereof: for the people had a mind to work.
But it came to pass, that when Sanbal'lat, and Tobi'ah, and the
Arabians, and the Ammonites, and the Ash'dodites, heard that
the walls of Jerusalem were made up, and that the breaches began
to be stopped, then they were very wroth,
and conspired all of them together to come and to fight against
Jerusalem, and to hinder it.
Nevertheless we made our prayer unto our God, and set a watch
against them day and night, because of them.
Keep not thou silence, O God:
hold not thy peace,
and be not still, O God.
For, lo, thine enemies make a tumult:
and they that hate thee have lifted up the head.
They have taken crafty counsel against thy people,
and consulted against thy hidden ones.
They have said, Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation;
that the name of Israel may be no more in remembrance.
For they have consulted together with one consent:
they are confederate against thee:
the tabernacles of Edom, and the Ish'maelites;
of Moab, and the Hag'arenes;
Gebal, and Ammon, and Am'alek;
the Philistines with the inhabitants of Tyre;
Assur also is joined with them:
they have helped the children of Lot.
In that day shall there be a highway out of Egypt to Assyria,
and the Assyrian shall come into Egypt, and the Egyptian into
Assyria, and the Egyptians shall serve with the Assyrians.
For the nation and kingdom that will not serve thee shall
perish; yea, those nations shall be utterly wasted.
The glory of Lebanon shall come unto thee, the fir tree, the
pine tree, and the box together, to beautify the place of my
sanctuary; and I will make the place of my feet glorious.
The sons also of them that afflicted thee shall come bending
unto thee; and all they that despised thee shall bow themselves
down at the soles of thy feet; and they shall call thee, The
city of the LORD, The Zion of the Holy One of Israel.
Whereas thou hast been forsaken and hated, so that no man went
through thee, I will make thee an eternal excellency, a joy of
The word of the LORD came again unto me, saying,
Son of man, prophesy and say, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Howl ye,
Woe worth the day!
For the day is near, even the day of the LORD is near, a cloudy
day; it shall be the time of the heathen.
And the sword shall come upon Egypt, and great pain shall be
in Ethiopia, when the slain shall fall in Egypt, and they shall
take away her multitude, and her foundations shall be broken
Ethiopia, and Libya, and Lydia, and all the mingled people, and
Chub, and the men of the land that is in league, shall fall with
them by the sword.
Thus saith the LORD; They also that uphold Egypt shall fall;
and the pride of her power shall come down: from the tower of
Sy-e'ne shall they fall in it by the sword, saith the Lord GOD.
And they shall be desolate in the midst of the countries that
are desolate, and her cities shall be in the midst of the cities
that are wasted.
And they shall know that I am the LORD, when I have set a fire
in Egypt, and when all her helpers shall be destroyed.
These things have I spoken unto you, that ye should not be offended.
They shall put you out of the synagogues: yea, the time cometh,
that whosoever killeth you will think that he doeth God service.
And these things will they do unto you, because they have not
known the Father, nor me.
But these things have I told you, that when the time shall come,
ye may remember that I told you of them.
And these things I said not unto you at the beginning, because
I was with you.
And how hear we every man in our own tongue, wherein we were
Par'thi-ans, and Medes, and E'lamites, and the dwellers in Mesopota'mi-a,
and in Judea, and Cappado'cia, in Pontus, and Asia,
Phryg'i-a, and Pamphyl'i-a, in Egypt, and in the parts of Libya
about Cyre'ne, and strangers of Rome, Jews and proselytes,
Cretes and Arabians, we do hear them speak in our tongues the
wonderful works of God.
And they were all amazed, and were in doubt, saying one to another,
What meaneth this?
Others mocking said, These men are full of new wine.
