1 And ait came to pass on the second sabbath after the first, that he went through the corn fields; and his disciples plucked the ears of corn, and did eat, rubbing them in their hands.
2 And certain of the Pharisees said unto them, bWhy do ye that which is not lawful to do on the sabbath days?
3 And Jesus answering them said, Have ye not read so much as this, cwhat David did, when himself was an hungred, and they which were with him;
4 How he went into the house of God, and did take and eat the shewbread, and gave also to them that were with him; dwhich it is not lawful to eat but for the priests alone?
5 And he said unto them, That the Son of man is Lord also of the sabbath.
6 eAnd it came to pass also on another sabbath, that he entered into the synagogue and taught: and there was a man whose right hand was withered.
7 And the scribes and Pharisees watched him, whether he would heal on the sabbath day; that they might find an accusation against him.
8 But he fknew their thoughts, and said to the man which had the withered hand, Rise up, and stand forth in the midst. And he arose and stood forth.
9 Then said Jesus unto them, I will ask you one thing; gIs it lawful on the sabbath days to do good, or to do evil? to save life, or to destroy it?
10 And looking round about upon them all, he said unto the man, Stretch forth thy hand. And he did so: and his hand was restored whole as the other.
11 And they were filled with madness; and communed one with another what they might do to Jesus.
12 hAnd it came to pass in those days, that he went out into a mountain to pray, and continued all night in prayer to God.
13 And when it was day, he called unto him his disciples: iand of them he chose twelve, whom also he named apostles; 14 Simon, j(whom he also named Peter,) and Andrew his brother, James and John, Philip and Bartholomew, 15 Matthew and Thomas, James the son of Alphaeus, and Simon called Zelotes, 16 And Judas kthe brother of James, and Judas Iscariot, which also was the traitor.
17 And he came down with them, and stood in the plain, and the company of his disciples, land a great multitude of people out of all Judaea and Jerusalem, and from the sea coast of Tyre and Sidon, which came to hear him, and to be healed of their diseases; 18 And they that were vexed with unclean spirits: and they were healed. 19 And the whole multitude msought to touch him: for nthere went virtue out of him, and healed them all.
20 And he lifted up his eyes on his disciples, and said, oBlessed be ye poor: for yours is the kingdom of God. 21 qBlessed are ye that hunger now: for ye shall be filled. pBlessed are ye that weep now: for ye shall laugh. 22 rBlessed are ye, when men shall hate you, and when they sshall separate you from their company, and shall reproach you, and cast out your name as evil, for the Son of man's sake. 23 uRejoice ye in that day, and leap for joy: for, behold, your reward is great in heaven: for tin the like manner did their fathers unto the prophets. 24 vBut woe unto you that are rich! for wye have received your consolation. 25 yWoe unto you that are full! for ye shall hunger. xWoe unto you that laugh now! for ye shall mourn and weep. 26 zWoe unto you, when all men shall speak well of you! for so did their fathers to the false prophets.
27 aBut I say unto you which hear, Love your enemies, do good to them which hate you, 28 Bless them that curse you, and bpray for them which despitefully use you. 29 cAnd unto him that smiteth thee on the one cheek offer also the other; dand him that taketh away thy cloak forbid not to take thy coat also. 30 eGive to every man that asketh of thee; and of him that taketh away thy goods ask them not again. 31 fAnd as ye would that men should do to you, do ye also to them likewise. 32 gFor if ye love them which love you, what thank have ye? for sinners also love those that love them. 33 And if ye do good to them which do good to you, what thank have ye? for sinners also do even the same. 34 hAnd if ye lend to them of whom ye hope to receive, what thank have ye? for sinners also lend to sinners, to receive as much again. 35 But love ye your enemies, and do good, and klend, hoping for nothing again; and your reward shall be great, and jye shall be the children of the Highest: for ihe is kind unto the unthankful and to the evil. 36 lBe ye therefore merciful, as your Father also is merciful. 37 mJudge not, and ye shall not be judged: condemn not, and ye shall not be condemned: forgive, and ye shall be forgiven: 38 pGive, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your obosom. For nwith the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again. 39 And he spake a parable unto them, qCan the blind lead the blind? shall they not both fall into the ditch? 40 The rdisciple is not above his master: but every one that is perfect shall be as his master. 41 sAnd why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother's eye, but perceivest not the beam that is in thine own eye? 42 Either how canst thou say to thy brother, Brother, let me pull out the mote that is in thine eye, when thou thyself beholdest not the beam that is in thine own eye? Thou hypocrite, tcast out first the beam out of thine own eye, and then shalt thou see clearly to pull out the mote that is in thy brother's eye. 43 uFor a good tree bringeth not forth corrupt fruit; neither doth a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. 44 For vevery tree is known by his own fruit. For of thorns men do not gather figs, nor of a bramble bush gather they grapes. 45 wA good man out of the good treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is good; and an evil man out of the evil treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is evil: for of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaketh.
46 xAnd why call ye me, Lord, Lord, and do not the things which I say? 47 yWhosoever cometh to me, and heareth my sayings, and doeth them, I will shew you to whom he is like: 48 He is like a man which built an house, and digged deep, and laid the foundation on a rock: and when athe flood arose, the stream beat vehemently upon that house, and could not shake it: for it was founded upon za rock. 49 But he that heareth, and doeth not, is like a man that without a foundation built an house upon the earth; against which the stream did beat vehemently, and immediately it fell; and bthe ruin of that house was great.
