King James Version (KJV)
18Â At the same time came the disciples unto Jesus, saying, Who is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven?
2Â And Jesus called a little child unto him, and set him in the midst of them,
3Â And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven.
4Â Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven.
5Â And whoso shall receive one such little child in my name receiveth me.
6Â But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea.
7Â Woe unto the world because of offences! for it must needs be that offences come; but woe to that man by whom the offence cometh!
8Â Wherefore if thy hand or thy foot offend thee, cut them off, and cast them from thee: it is better for thee to enter into life halt or maimed, rather than having two hands or two feet to be cast into everlasting fire.
9Â And if thine eye offend thee, pluck it out, and cast it from thee: it is better for thee to enter into life with one eye, rather than having two eyes to be cast into hell fire.
10Â Take heed that ye despise not one of these little ones; for I say unto you, That in heaven their angels do always behold the face of my Father which is in heaven.
11Â For the Son of man is come to save that which was lost.
12Â How think ye? if a man have an hundred sheep, and one of them be gone astray, doth he not leave the ninety and nine, and goeth into the mountains, and seeketh that which is gone astray?
13Â And if so be that he find it, verily I say unto you, he rejoiceth more of that sheep, than of the ninety and nine which went not astray.
14Â Even so it is not the will of your Father which is in heaven, that one of these little ones should perish.
15Â Moreover if thy brother shall trespass against thee, go and tell him his fault between thee and him alone: if he shall hear thee, thou hast gained thy brother.
16Â But if he will not hear thee, then take with thee one or two more, that in the mouth of two or three witnesses every word may be established.
17Â And if he shall neglect to hear them, tell it unto the church: but if he neglect to hear the church, let him be unto thee as an heathen man and a publican.
18Â Verily I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever ye shall loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.
19Â Again I say unto you, That if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven.
20Â For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.
21Â Then came Peter to him, and said, Lord, how oft shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? till seven times?
22Â Jesus saith unto him, I say not unto thee, Until seven times: but, Until seventy times seven.
23Â Therefore is the kingdom of heaven likened unto a certain king, which would take account of his servants.
24Â And when he had begun to reckon, one was brought unto him, which owed him ten thousand talents.
25Â But forasmuch as he had not to pay, his lord commanded him to be sold, and his wife, and children, and all that he had, and payment to be made.
26Â The servant therefore fell down, and worshipped him, saying, Lord, have patience with me, and I will pay thee all.
27Â Then the lord of that servant was moved with compassion, and loosed him, and forgave him the debt.
28Â But the same servant went out, and found one of his fellowservants, which owed him an hundred pence: and he laid hands on him, and took him by the throat, saying, Pay me that thou owest.
29Â And his fellowservant fell down at his feet, and besought him, saying, Have patience with me, and I will pay thee all.
30Â And he would not: but went and cast him into prison, till he should pay the debt.
31Â So when his fellowservants saw what was done, they were very sorry, and came and told unto their lord all that was done.
32Â Then his lord, after that he had called him, said unto him, O thou wicked servant, I forgave thee all that debt, because thou desiredst me:
33Â Shouldest not thou also have had compassion on thy fellowservant, even as I had pity on thee?
34Â And his lord was wroth, and delivered him to the tormentors, till he should pay all that was due unto him.
35Â So likewise shall my heavenly Father do also unto you, if ye from your hearts forgive not every one his brother their trespasses.
19Â And a certain scribe came, and said unto him, Master, I will follow thee whithersoever thou goest.
20Â And Jesus saith unto him, The foxes have holes, and the birds of the air have nests; but the Son of man hath not where to lay his head.
21Â And another of his disciples said unto him, Lord, suffer me first to go and bury my father.
22Â But Jesus said unto him, Follow me; and let the dead bury their dead.
33Â And he came to Capernaum: and being in the house he asked them, What was it that ye disputed among yourselves by the way?
34Â But they held their peace: for by the way they had disputed among themselves, who should be the greatest.
35Â And he sat down, and called the twelve, and saith unto them, If any man desire to be first, the same shall be last of all, and servant of all.
36Â And he took a child, and set him in the midst of them: and when he had taken him in his arms, he said unto them,
37Â Whosoever shall receive one of such children in my name, receiveth me: and whosoever shall receive me, receiveth not me, but him that sent me.
38Â And John answered him, saying, Master, we saw one casting out devils in thy name, and he followeth not us: and we forbad him, because he followeth not us.
39Â But Jesus said, Forbid him not: for there is no man which shall do a miracle in my name, that can lightly speak evil of me.
40Â For he that is not against us is on our part.
41Â For whosoever shall give you a cup of water to drink in my name, because ye belong to Christ, verily I say unto you, he shall not lose his reward.
42Â And whosoever shall offend one of these little ones that believe in me, it is better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he were cast into the sea.
43Â And if thy hand offend thee, cut it off: it is better for thee to enter into life maimed, than having two hands to go into hell, into the fire that never shall be quenched:
44Â Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.
45Â And if thy foot offend thee, cut it off: it is better for thee to enter halt into life, than having two feet to be cast into hell, into the fire that never shall be quenched:
46Â Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.
47Â And if thine eye offend thee, pluck it out: it is better for thee to enter into the kingdom of God with one eye, than having two eyes to be cast into hell fire:
48Â Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.
49Â For every one shall be salted with fire, and every sacrifice shall be salted with salt.
50Â Salt is good: but if the salt have lost his saltness, wherewith will ye season it? Have salt in yourselves, and have peace one with another.
46Â Then there arose a reasoning among them, which of them should be greatest.
47Â And Jesus, perceiving the thought of their heart, took a child, and set him by him,
48Â And said unto them, Whosoever shall receive this child in my name receiveth me: and whosoever shall receive me receiveth him that sent me: for he that is least among you all, the same shall be great.
49Â And John answered and said, Master, we saw one casting out devils in thy name; and we forbad him, because he followeth not with us.
50Â And Jesus said unto him, Forbid him not: for he that is not against us is for us.
51Â And it came to pass, when the time was come that he should be received up, he stedfastly set his face to go to Jerusalem,
52Â And sent messengers before his face: and they went, and entered into a village of the Samaritans, to make ready for him.
53Â And they did not receive him, because his face was as though he would go to Jerusalem.
54Â And when his disciples James and John saw this, they said, Lord, wilt thou that we command fire to come down from heaven, and consume them, even as Elias did?
55Â But he turned, and rebuked them, and said, Ye know not what manner of spirit ye are of.
56Â For the Son of man is not come to destroy men’s lives, but to save them. And they went to another village.
57Â And it came to pass, that, as they went in the way, a certain man said unto him, Lord, I will follow thee whithersoever thou goest.
58Â And Jesus said unto him, Foxes have holes, and birds of the air have nests; but the Son of man hath not where to lay his head.
59Â And he said unto another, Follow me. But he said, Lord, suffer me first to go and bury my father.
60Â Jesus said unto him, Let the dead bury their dead: but go thou and preach the kingdom of God.
61Â And another also said, Lord, I will follow thee; but let me first go bid them farewell, which are at home at my house.
62Â And Jesus said unto him, No man, having put his hand to the plough, and looking back, is fit for the kingdom of God.
2Â Now the Jew’s feast of tabernacles was at hand.
3Â His brethren therefore said unto him, Depart hence, and go into Judaea, that thy disciples also may see the works that thou doest.
4Â For there is no man that doeth any thing in secret, and he himself seeketh to be known openly. If thou do these things, shew thyself to the world.
5Â For neither did his brethren believe in him.
6Â Then Jesus said unto them, My time is not yet come: but your time is alway ready.
7Â The world cannot hate you; but me it hateth, because I testify of it, that the works thereof are evil.
8Â Go ye up unto this feast: I go not up yet unto this feast: for my time is not yet full come.
9Â When he had said these words unto them, he abode still in Galilee.
10Â But when his brethren were gone up, then went he also up unto the feast, not openly, but as it were in secret.
