1.1 this is the history of Yahusha, the son of david, the son of abraham.
1.2 abraham begat isaac; and isaac begat jacob; and jacob begat judah and his brethren;
1.3 and judah begat perez and zerah of tamar; and perez begat hezron; and hezron begat ram;
1.4 and ram begat amminadab; and amminadab begat nahshon; and nahshon begat salmon;
1.5 and salmon begat boaz; and boaz begat obed of ruth; and obed begat jesse;
1.6 and jesse begat david the king. And david begat solomon;
1.7 and solomon begat rehoboam; and rehoboam begat abijah; and abijah begat asa;
1.8 and asa begat jehoshaphat; and jehoshaphat begat joram; and joram begat uzziah;
1.9 and uzziah begat jotham; and jotham begat ahaz; and ahaz begat hezekiah;
1.10 and hezekiah begat manasseh; and manasseh begat amon; and amon begat josiah;
1.11 and josiah begat jechoniah.
1.12 jechoniah begat shealtiel; and shealtiel begat zerubbabel;
1.13 and zerubbabel begat abihud; and abihud begat eliakim; and eliakim begat azor;
1.14 and azor begat sadoc; and sadoc begat amon; and amon begat elihud; [1]
1.15 and elihud begat eleazar; and eleazar begat matthan; and matthan begat jacob;
1.16-25 and jacob begat joseph; and joseph begat Yahusha, who is called anointed.[2]
 
2.1-22 and Yahusha was born in bethlehem of judaea in the days of herod the king, and behold, joseph took the boy and his mother, and turned to the land of galilee,
2.23 and came and dwelt in a city called nazareth.
3.1 in those days came Yahuchanan the immerser, preaching in the wilderness of judaea,
3.2 saying, convert yourselves, because the kingdom of YAHUH is near to come.
3.3 to fulfill what was said through Isaiah the prophet, a voice crieth in the wilderness, make ye straight in the dry land a path to our YAH.[3]
3.4 and the raiment of john was of camel’s hair, and a leathern girdle about his loins; and his food was locust and honey of the forest.
3.5 then went out unto him from jerusalem, and from all judaea, and from all the kingdoms of the surroundings of the jordan,
3.6 and confessed their sins and baptized themselves in the river jordan by his word.
3.7 but when he saw many of the pharisees and sadducees coming to his baptism, he said unto them,
3.8 bring forth the fruit of A perfect conversion:
3.9 and say not in your hearts, abraham is our father: in truth i say unto you that YAH is able to rise up children of abraham of these stones.
3.10-12 and even now the axe lieth at the root of the trees: every tree therefore that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.
3.13 then cometh Yahusha from galilee to the jordan; and baptizing themselves all the people, also Yahusha baptized himself.[4]
3.16 and immediately when he went up from the water, the heavens were opened to him, and he saw the spirit of YAH descending upon him;
3.17 and lo, a voice out of the heavens, saying, thou art my son, today i begot thee.[5] [6] [7]
 
4.1 then was Yahusha led up of the holy spirit into the wilderness.
4.2-11 and was in the wilderness forty days, and the angels served him.
4.12 and when he heard that john was delivered up, he withdrew into galilee;
4.13 and he left nazareth, and departed, and dwelt in capernaum, which is a city by the sea, in the border of zebulun and naphtali:
4.14 that it might be fulfilled which was spoken through isaiah the prophet, saying,
4.15 the land of zebulun and the land of naphtali, toward the sea, beyond the jordan, galilee of the gentiles,
4.16 the people that sat in darkness saw a great light, and to them that sat in the region and shadow of death, to them did light spring up.
4.17 from that time began Yahusha to preach, and to say, convert yourselves, because the kingdom of YAH is at hand.
4.18 and walking by the sea of galilee, he saw two brethren, simon who is called cephas, and andrew his brother, casting a net into the sea; for they were fishers.
4.19 and he saith unto them, come ye after me, and i will make you fishers of men.
4.20 and they straightway left the nets, and followed him.
4.21 and going on from thence he saw two other brethren, jacob the son of zabdi, and john his brother, in the boat with zabdi their father, mending their nets; and he called them.
4.22 and they straightway left the boat and their father, and followed him.
4.23 and Yahusha went about in all the land of the galilee, teaching in their synagogues, and announcing the good news of the kingdom of YAH, and healing all disease and all sickness among the people.
4.24 and the report of him went forth into all syria: and they brought unto him all that were sick, holden with divers diseases and torments, possessed with demons, and epileptic, and palsied; and he healed them.
4.25 and there followed him great multitudes from galilee and decapolis and jerusalem and judaea and from beyond the jordan.
 
5.1 and Yahusha saw the multitudes, and went up into the mountain and sat down, and his disciples came unto him:
5.2 and he opened his mouth and spoke to them, saying,
5.3 blessed are the humble in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of YAH.
5.4 blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted.
5.5 blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth.
5.6 blessed are they that hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled.
5.7 blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy.
5.8 blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see YAH.
5.9 blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called sons of YAH.
5.10 blessed are they that have been persecuted for righteousness’ sake: for theirs is the kingdom of YAH.
5.11 blessed are ye when men shall persecute and insult you, and say all manner of evil against you, lying, for my sake.
5.12 be happy and rejoice, for very great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets.
5.13 ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost its savor, wherewith shall it be salted? It is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out and trodden under foot of men.
5.14 ye are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hid.
5.15 they do not light a candle to put it in a hidden place, where it does not shine, but they place it upon a lamp stand, in order to shine for all the sons of the house.
5.16 even so let your light shine before men; that they may see your good works, and glorify your father who is in heaven.
5.17 do not think that i came to abolish the law or the prophets: i came not to abolish, but to fulfill.
5.18 verily i say unto you that till heaven and earth pass away, one jot or one tittle shall not be abolished from the law or from the prophets, because all shall be fulfilled.
5.19 and the one who shall transgress one of these commandments, and shall teach others, shall be called son of the lie in the kingdom of YAH: but the one who fulfill and teach, shall be called great in the kingdom of YAH.
5.20-47 and i say unto you: if your righteousness shall not be great, more than the righteousness of the pharisees and of the scribes, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of YAH.
5.48 ye therefore shall be perfect, as your heavenly father is perfect.
 
6.1-9 and after this manner pray ye. Our father who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name.
6.10 thy kingdom come. Thy will be done, in heaven and on earth.
6.11 give us today our continuous bread.
6.12 and forgive our sins.
6.13-34 and bring us not into temptation, but keep us from all evil; for thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever; amen.
 
7.1-7 ask to YAH, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you:
7.8 for every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.
7.9 or what man is there of you, who, if his son shall ask him for a loaf, will give him a stone;
7.10 or if he shall ask for a fish, will give him a serpent?
7.11 AND if ye, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children, how much more shall your father who is in heaven give good things to them that ask him?
7.12 all things therefore whatsoever ye would that men should do unto you, even so do ye also unto them: for this is the law and the prophets.
7.13 enter ye in by the narrow gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many are they that enter in thereby.
7.14 for narrow is the gate, and straitened the way, that leadeth unto life, and few are they that find it.
7.15 beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly are ravening wolves.
7.16 and by their deeds ye shall know them. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?
7.17 even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but the corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit.
7.18 a good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.
7.19 every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.
7.20 therefore, according to their fruits, that is, by their deeds, ye shall know them.
7.21 not every one that saith unto me, lord, lord, shall enter into the kingdom of YAH, but he that doeth the will of my father who is in heaven, this shall enter into the kingdom of YAH.
7.22 many will say to me in that day, lord, lord, did we not prophesy in thy name, and in thy name cast out demons, and in thy name do many signs?
7.23 and then i will say unto them, i never knew you: depart from me, all that work iniquity.
7.24 every one that heareth these words of mine, and doeth them, shall be likened unto a wise man, who built his house upon the rock:
7.25 and the rain descended, and the streams came, and the winds blew, and struck that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon the rock.
7.26 and every one that heareth these words of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, who built his house upon the sand:
7.27 and the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and struck that house; and it fell: and great was its fall.
7.28 and while Yahusha was speaking those words, all the people were astonished at his teaching,
7.29 for he was teaching to as man of authority, and not as the scribes and the pharisees.
 
8.1 and when he was come down from the mountain, great multitudes followed him.
8.2 and behold, there came to him a leper and bowed down before him, saying, lord, if thou wilt, thou canst make me clean.
8.3 and he stretched forth his hand, and touched him, saying, i will; be thou made clean. And straightway his leprosy was cleansed.
8.4 and Yahusha saith unto him, keep thyself lest thou tell any man; but go, show thyself to the priest, and offer thy offering as moses commanded in the law.
8.5 and when he was entered into capernaum, there came unto him a centurion, beseeching him,
8.6 and saying, lord, my servant lieth in the house sick of the palsy, grievously tormented.
8.7 and he saith unto him, i will come and heal him.
8.8 and the centurion answered and said, lord, i am not worthy that thou shouldest come under my roof; but only say the word, and my servant shall be healed.
8.9 for i also am a man under authority, having under myself soldiers: and i say to this one, go, and he goeth; and to another, come, and he cometh; and to my servant, do this, and he doeth it.
8.10 and Yahusha heard, and marvelled, and said to them that followed him, verily i say unto you, i have not found faith like this in israel.
8.11-12 and i say unto you, that many shall come from the east and the west, and shall sit down with abraham, and isaac, and jacob, in the kingdom of YAH:
8.13 and Yahusha said unto the centurion, go thy way; as thou hast believed, so be it done unto thee. And the servant was healed in that hour.
8.14 at that time, Yahusha went into the house of cephas, and behold his mother-in-law was lying sick with a fever.
8.15 and he touched her hand, and the fever left her; and she arose, and ministered unto him.
8.16 and when even was come, they brought unto him many possessed with demons: and he cast out the spirits with a word, and healed all that were sick:
8.17 that it might be fulfilled which was spoken through isaiah the prophet, saying: himself took our infirmities, and bare our diseases.
8.18-22 and happened after those things that Yahusha saw great multitudes about him, and he gave commandment to depart unto the other side of the sea.
8.23 and when he was entered into a boat, his disciples followed him.
8.24 and behold, there arose a great tempest in the sea, insomuch that the boat was covered with the waves: but he was asleep.
8.25 and they came to him, and awoke him, saying, master, master, we perish.
8.26-27 and he saith unto them, why are ye fearful, o ye of little faith? Then he arose, and rebuked the winds and the sea; and there was a great calm.
8.28 and when he was come to the other side into the country of the gadarenes, there met him two possessed with demons, coming forth out of the tombs, exceeding fierce, so that no man could pass by that way.
8.29 and behold, they cried out, saying, what have we to do with thee, thou son of YAH? Art thou come hither to torment us before the time?
8.30 now there was afar off from them a herd of many swine feeding.
8.31 and the demons besought him, saying, if thou cast us out, send us away into the herd of swine.
8.32 and he said unto them, go. And they came out, and went into the swine: and behold, the whole herd rushed down the steep into the sea, and perished in the waters.
8.33 and they that fed them fled, and went away into the city, and told everything, and what was befallen to them that were possessed with demons.
8.34 and behold, all the city came out to meet Yahusha: and when they saw him, they besought him that he would depart from their borders.
 
9.1 and he entered into a boat, and crossed over, and came into his own city.
9.2-5 and they brought before him a paralytic who was lying on a bed: and Yahusha saw their faith and said unto the paralytic, strengthen thyself, my son, in the faith in YAH.
9.6 then, he saith to the paralytic, arise, and take thy bed, and walk.
9.7 and he arose, and walked to his house.
9.8 and the multitudes saw it, and they were very afraid, and praised YAH.
9.9 and it came to pass that when Yahusha passed on from there, he saw a man sitting at the table of exchange, matthew was his name, and he saith unto him, follow me. And he arose, and followed him.
9.10 and it came to pass, as he sat at meat in the house, behold, many transgressors and sinners came and sat down with Yahusha and his disciples.
9.11 and when the pharisees saw it, they said unto his disciples, why eateth your teacher with the transgressors and sinners?
9.12 but when he heard it, he said, they that are whole have no need of a physician, but they that are sick.
9.13 but go ye and learn what this meaneth, i desire mercy, and not sacrifice, for i came not to call the righteous, but sinners.
9.14 then come to him the disciples of john, saying, why do we and the pharisees fast oft, but thy disciples fast not?
9.15-17 and Yahusha said unto them, can the sons of the bridechamber mourn, as long as the bridegroom is with them? But the days will come, when the bridegroom shall be taken away from them, and then will they fast.
9.18 while he spake these things unto them, behold, there came a ruler, and bowed down before him, saying, my daughter is even now dead: but come and lay thy hand upon her, and she shall live.
9.19 and Yahusha arose, and went after him, with his disciples.
9.20 and behold, a woman, who had an issue of blood twelve years, came behind him, and touched the fringe of his garment:
9.21 and she was saying in her heart, if i do but touch his garment, i shall be healed immediately.
9.22 and he turned his face and said unto her, strengthen thyself, daughter, in YAH. At that time she was healed.
9.23 and it came to pass that when Yahusha came into the ruler’s house, and he saw many people crying,
9.24 and he said unto them, go out all of you, to the street, and cry not, for the girl sleepeth, and died not. And he was at their eyes as one who jesteth; and they were saying: are we not seeing that she died?
9.25 and when they put them out to the street, Yahusha went to her and touched her hand and the girl arose.
9.26 and this report went out into all that land.
9.27 and Yahusha passed on from thence, and behold two blind men were runnig after him and were crying out to him: have mercy on us, son of david.
9.28 and it came to pass, when he came into the house, that the blind men approached to him.
9.29 then he touched their eyes.
9.30 and the eyes of both were immediately opened, and they saw. And he commanded them, saying: keep yourselves lest the matter be made known.
9.31 and they went forth, and revealed it in all that land.
9.32 and as they went forth, behold, there was brought to him a dumb man possessed with a demon.
9.33 and when the demon was cast out, the dumb man spake: and the multitudes marvelled, saying, it was never so seen in israel.
9.34 but the pharisees said, by the prince of the demons casteth he out demons.
9.35 and Yahusha went about all the cities, teaching in the synagogues, and preaching the good tidings of the kingdom, and healing all disease and all sickness.
9.36 but when he saw the multitudes, he was moved with compassion for them, because they were distressed and scattered, as sheep not having a shepherd.
9.37 then saith he unto his disciples, the harvest indeed is plenteous, but the laborers are few.
9.38 pray ye therefore the lord of the harvest, that he send forth laborers into his harvest.
 
10.1-2 and these are the names of the twelve apostles: simon, who is called cephas, and andrew his brother;
10.3 philip, and bartholomew; jacob and john his brother, sons of zabdi; thomas, and matthew, who loaned with interest publicly; jacob the son of alphaeus, and lebbaeus who is called thaddaeus;
10.4 simon the cananaean, and judah iscariot, who after this betrayed him.
10.5 and Yahusha sent forth these twelve, and charged them, saying, go not into the lands of the gentiles, and enter not into the cities of the samaritans:
10.6 but go to the sheep that are lost from the house of israel.
10.7-15-23 go and preach, saying, convert, convert, because the kingdom of YAH is near to come.
10.24 a disciple is not above his teacher, nor a servant above his lord.
10.25 it is enough for the disciple that he be as his teacher, and the servant as his lord. If they have called the master of the house beelzebub, how much more them of his household!
10.26 fear them not therefore: for there is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed; and hid, that shall not be known.
10.27 what i tell you in the darkness, speak ye in the light; and what ye hear in the ear, proclaim upon the house-tops.
10.28 and be not afraid of them that kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him who is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.
10.29 are not two sparrows sold for a penny? And not one of them shall fall on the ground without your father:
10.30 but the very hairs of your head are all numbered.
10.31-39 fear not therefore: ye are of more value than many sparrows.
10.40 he that receiveth you receiveth me, and he that receiveth me receiveth him that sent me.
10.41 he that receiveth a prophet for the name of prophet shall receive the prophet’s reward: and he that receiveth a righteous man for the name of a righteous man shall receive the righteous man’s reward.
10.42 and whosoever shall give a vessel of cold water unto one of my little disciples for the name of my disciple, verily i say unto you that he shall not lose his reward.
 
11.1 and it came to pass when Yahusha had finished commanding his twelve disciples, he departed thence to teach and preach in their cities.
11.2 now when john heard in the prison the works of the anointed, he sent by his disciples
11.3 and said unto him, art thou he that should come, or hope we for another?
11.4 and Yahusha answered and said unto them, go and tell john the things which ye hear and see:
11.5-12.8 the blind see, and the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed, and the deaf hear, and the dead are raised up, and the humble receive good tidings.
 
12.9 and Yahusha departed thence, and entered into their synagogue.
12.10 and was there a man whose hand was withered. And they asked him, saying, is it lawful to heal him on the sabbath day?
12.11 and he said unto them, what man shall there be of you, that shall have one sheep, and if this fall into a pit on the sabbath day, will he not lay hold on it, and lift it out?
12.12 an is not a man better than a sheep? Wherefore it is lawful to do good on the sabbath day.
12.13 then saith he to the man, stretch forth thy hand. And he stretched forth his hand, and it turned as the other.
12.14 then, the pharisees came together, and conspired against him, to kill him.
12.15 and Yahusha perceiving it withdrew from thence: and many followed him; and he healed them all,
12.16 and charged them that they should not make him known:
12.17 that it might be fulfilled which was spoken through isaiah the prophet, saying,
12.18 behold, my servant, whom i uphold; my chosen, in whom my soul delighteth: i have put my spirit upon him; he will bring forth justice to the gentiles.
12.19 he will not cry, nor lift up his voice, nor cause it to be heard in the street.
12.20 a bruised reed will he not break, and a dimly burning wick will he not quench: he will bring forth justice in truth.
12.21 he will not fail nor be discouraged, till he have set justice in the earth; and the isles shall wait for his law.
12.22 then was brought unto him one possessed with a demon, blind and dumb: and he healed him, and he spake and saw.
12.23 and all the multitudes were amazed, and said, can this be the son of david?
12.24 but when the pharisees heard it, they said, this man doth not cast out demons, but by beelzebub the prince of the demons.
12.25 and knowing their thoughts he said unto them, every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and every city or house divided against itself shall not stand:
12.26 and if satan casteth out satan, he is divided against himself; how then shall his kingdom stand?
12.27 and if i by beelzebub cast out demons, by whom do your sons cast them out? Therefore shall they be your judges.
12.28-37 but if i by the spirit of YAH cast out demons, then the kingdom of YAH came upon you.
12.38 at that time some pharisees and scribes came to Yahusha, saying, we want to see a sign from heaven on behalf of you.
12.39 but he answered and said unto them, a generation seeketh after a sign; and there shall no sign be given it but the sign of jonah the prophet:
12.40-45 for as jonah was three days and three nights in the belly of the whale; so shall the son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth.
12.46 while he was yet speaking to the multitudes, behold, his mother and his brethren stood without, seeking to speak to him.
12.47 and one said unto him, behold, thy mother and thy brethren stand without, seeking to speak to thee.
12.48 but he answered and said unto him that told him, who is my mother? And who are my brethren?
12.49 and he stretched forth his hand towards his disciples, and said, behold, my mother and my brethren!
12.50 for whosoever shall do the will of my father who is in heaven, he is my brother, and sister, and mother.
 
13.1 on that day went Yahusha out of the house, and sat by the sea side.
13.2 and there were gathered unto him great multitudes, so that he entered into a boat, and sat; and all the multitude stood on the beach.
13.3 and he spake to them many things in parables, saying, behold, the sower went forth to sow;
13.4 and as he sowed, some seeds fell by the way side, and the birds came and devoured them:
13.5 and others fell upon the rocky places, where they had not much earth: and straightway they sprang up, because they had no deepness of earth:
13.6 and when the sun was risen, they were scorched; and because they had no root, they withered away.
13.7 and others fell upon the thorns; and the thorns grew up and choked them:
13.8 and others fell upon the good ground, and yielded fruit, some a hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty.
13.9 he that hath ears, let him hear.
13.10 and the disciples came, and said unto him, why speakest thou unto them in parables?
13.11-12 and he answered and said unto them, because unto you it is given to know the secrets of the kingdom of YAH, but to them it is not given.
13.13 therefore, i speak to them in parables; because they see and hear, and they do not understand.
13.14 in order to be fulfilled in them the prophecy of isaiah, which saith, hear ye hearing, and do not understand; and see ye seeing, and do not perceive:
13.15 fatten the heart of this people, and make heavy their ear, and blind their eyes; lest they perceive with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and understand with their heart, and convert, and be healed.
13.16 but blessed are your eyes, for they see; and your ears, for they hear.
13.17 for verily i say unto you, that many prophets and righteous men desired to see the things which ye see, and saw them not; and to hear the things which ye hear, and heard them not.
13.18 hear then ye the parable of the sower.
13.19 when any one heareth the word of the kingdom of YAH, and understandeth it not, then cometh the satan, and snatcheth away from his heart everything which hath been sown in him. This is the seed that was sown by the way side.
13.20 and he that was sown upon the rocky places, this is he that heareth the word, and straightway with joy receiveth it;
13.21 yet hath he not root in himself, but endureth for a while; and when tribulation or persecution ariseth because of the word, straightway he stumbleth.
13.22 and he that was sown among the thorns, this is he that heareth the word; and the care of the world, and the deceitfulness of riches, choke the word, and he becometh unfruitful.
13.23 and he that was sown upon the good ground, this is he that heareth the word, and understandeth it; who verily beareth fruit, and bringeth forth, some a hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty.
13.24 another parable set he before them, saying, the kingdom of YAH is likened unto a man that sowed good seed in his field:
13.25 but while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares also among the wheat, and went away.
13.26 but when the blade sprang up and brought forth fruit, then appeared the tares also.
13.27 and the servants of the householder came and said unto him, sir, didst thou not sow good seed in thy field? Whence then hath it tares?
13.28 and he said unto them, an enemy hath done this. And the servants say unto him, wilt thou then that we go and gather them up?
13.29 but he saith, nay; lest haply while ye gather up the tares, ye root up the wheat with them.
13.30 let both grow together until the harvest: and in the time of the harvest i will say to the reapers, gather up first the tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them; but gather the wheat into my barn.
13.31 another parable set he before them, saying, the kingdom of YAH is like unto a grain of mustard seed, which a man took, and sowed in his field:
13.32 which indeed is less than all seeds; but when it is grown, it is greater than the herbs, and becometh a tree, so that the birds of the heaven come and lodge in the branches thereof.
13.33 another parable spake he unto them; the kingdom of YAH is like unto leaven, which a woman took, and hid in three measures of meal, till it was all leavened.
13.34 all these things spake Yahusha in parables unto the multitudes; and without a parable spake he nothing unto them:
13.35 that it might be fulfilled which was spoken through the prophet, saying, i will open my mouth in parables; i will utter things hidden from the foundation of the world.
13.36 then he left the multitudes, and went into the house: and his disciples came unto him, saying, explain unto us the parable of the tares of the field.
13.37 and he answered and said, he that soweth the good seed is YAH;[8]
13.38 and the field is the world; and the good seed, these are the sons of the kingdom; and the tares are the sons of the evil one;
13.39 and the enemy that sowed them is the devil: and the harvest is the end of the world; and the reapers are angels.
13.40 as therefore the tares are gathered up and burned with fire; so shall it be in the end of the world.
13.41 the son of man shall send forth his angels, and they shall gather out of his kingdom all things that cause stumbling, and them that do iniquity,
13.42 and shall cast them into the furnace of fire: there shall be the weeping and the gnashing of teeth.
13.13.43 then shall the righteous shine forth as the sun in the kingdom of their father. He that hath ears, let him hear.
13.44 the kingdom of YAH is like unto a treasure hidden in the field; which a man found, and hid; and in his joy he goeth and selleth all that he hath, and buyeth that field.
13.45 again, the kingdom of YAH is like unto a man that is a merchant seeking goodly pearls:
13.46 and having found one pearl of great price, he went and sold all that he had, and bought it.
13.47 again, the kingdom of YAH is like unto a net, that was cast into the sea, and gathered of every kind:
13.48 which, when it was filled, they drew up on the beach; and they sat down, and gathered the good into vessels, but the bad they cast away.
13.49 so shall it be in the end of the world: the angels shall come forth, and sever the wicked from among the righteous,
13.50 and shall cast them into the furnace of fire: there shall be the weeping and the gnashing of teeth.
13.51 have ye understood all these things? They say unto him, yea.
13.52 and he said unto them, therefore every sage learned in the kingdom of YAH is like unto a man that is a householder, who bringeth forth out of his treasure things new and old.
13.53 and it came to pass, when Yahusha had finished these parables, he departed thence.
13.54 and he came into his country and he taught them in their synagogues, and they wondered, and said, whence came to this man this wisdom, and the might?
13.55 is not this the son of joseph the blacksmith? Is not his mother called miriam? And his brethren, jacob, and joseph, and simon, and judah?
13.56 and his sisters, are they not all with us? Whence then hath this man all these things?
13.57 and they were offended in him. But Yahusha said unto them, a prophet is not without honor, save in his own country, and in his own house.
13.58 and he did not many mighty works there because of their unbelief.
 
14.1 at that season herod the tetrarch heard the report concerning Yahusha,
14.2 and said unto his servants, this is john the baptist; he is risen from the dead; and therefore do these powers work in him.
14.3 for herod had laid hold on john, and bound him, and put him in prison for the sake of herodias, his brother philip’s wife.
14.4 for john said unto him, it is not lawful for thee to have her.
14.5 and when he would have put him to death, he feared the multitude, because they counted him as a prophet.
14.6 but when herod’s birthday came, the daughter of herodias danced in the midst, and pleased herod.
14.7 whereupon he promised with an oath to give her whatsoever she should ask.
14.8 and she, being put forward by her mother, saith, give me here on a platter the head of john the baptist.
14.9 and the king was grieved; but for the sake of his oaths, and of them that sat at meat with him, he commanded it to be given;
14.10 and he sent and beheaded john in the prison.
14.11 and his head was brought on a platter, and given to the damsel: and she brought it to her mother.
14.12 and his disciples came, and took up the corpse, and buried him; and they went and told Yahusha.
14.13 now when Yahusha heard it, he withdrew from thence in a boat, to a desert place apart: and when the multitudes heard thereof, they followed him on foot from the cities.
14.14 and he came forth, and saw a great multitude, and he had compassion on them, and healed their sick.
14.15 and when even was come, the disciples came to him, saying, the place is desert, and the time is already past; send the multitudes away, that they may go into the villages, and buy themselves food.
14.16 but Yahusha said unto them, they have no need to go away; give ye them to eat.
14.17 and they say unto him, we have here but five loaves, and two fishes.
14.18 and he said, bring them hither to me.
14.19 and he commanded the multitudes to sit down on the grass; and he took the five loaves, and the two fishes, and looking up to heaven, he blessed, and brake and gave the loaves to the disciples, and the disciples to the multitudes.
14.20 and they all ate, and were filled: and they took up that which remained over of the broken pieces, twelve baskets full.
14.21 and they that did eat were about five thousand men, besides women and children.
14.22 and straightway he constrained the disciples to enter into the boat, and to go before him unto the other side, till he should send the multitudes away.
14.23 and after he had sent the multitudes away, he went up into the mountain apart to pray: and when even was come, he was there alone.
14.24 but the boat was now in the midst of the sea, distressed by the waves; for the wind was contrary.
14.25 and in the fourth watch of the night he came unto them, walking upon the sea.
14.26 and when the disciples saw him walking on the sea, they were troubled, saying, it is a ghost; and they cried out for fear.
14.27-31 but straightway Yahusha spake unto them, saying trust, because it is i; be not afraid.
14.32 and when he went up into the boat, the wind ceased.
14.33 and they that were in the boat bowed down before him, saying, of a truth thou art the son of YAH.
14.34 and they crossed the sea, and arrived into the land of gennesaret.
14.35 and when the men of that place knew him, they sent into all that region round about, and brought unto him all that were sick,
14.36 and they besought him that they might only touch the border of his garment: and as many as touched were made whole.
 
15.1 then came to Yahusha the scribes and the pharisees, and they said unto him,
15.2 why do thy disciples transgress the ordinances of the elders? For they wash not their hands when they eat the bread.
15.3 and Yahusha said unto them, and why do ye transgress the commandment of YAH because of your ordinances?
15.4 for YAH said, honor thy father and thy mother: and, he that speaketh evil of father or mother, let him die the death.
15.5 but ye say, whosoever shall say to his father or to his mother, that wherewith thou would profit from me is an offering, he shall not honor his father and his mother.
15.6 and ye nullify the commandment of YAH because of your ordinances.
15.7 ye hypocrites, behold, isaiah prophesied of you, and said,
15.8 thus saith javeh, because this people approacheth with their mouth, and honoreth me with their lips; but their heart is far from me.
15.9-19 and their fear for me is commandment of men, that is taught.[9]
15.20 verily, the meal without washing the hands defileth not the man.
15.21 and after saying this, Yahusha went to the regions of tyre and sidon.
15.22 and behold, a canaanite woman came out from those borders, and cried, saying, have mercy on me, o lord, thou son of david; my daughter is grievously vexed with a demon.
15.23 but he answered her not a word. And his disciples came and besought him, saying, send her away; for she crieth after us.
15.24 but he answered and said, i was not sent but unto the lost sheep of the house of israel.
15.25 but she came and bowed down before him, saying, lord, help me.
15.26 and he answered and said, it is not meet to take the children’s bread and cast it to the dogs.
15.27 but she said, yea, lord: for even the dogs eat of the crumbs which fall from their masters’ table.
15.28 then Yahusha answered and said unto her, o woman, great is thy faith: be it done unto thee even as thou wilt. And her daughter was healed from that hour.
15.29 and Yahusha departed thence, and came nigh unto the sea of galilee; and he went up into the mountain, and sat there.
15.30 and there came unto him great multitudes, having with them the lame, blind, dumb, maimed, and many others, and they cast them down at this feet; and he healed them:
15.31 insomuch that the multitude wondered, when they saw the dumb speaking, the maimed whole, and lame walking, and the blind seeing: and they glorified the YAH of israel.
15.32 and Yahusha called unto him his disciples, and said, i have compassion on the multitude, because they continue with me now three days and have nothing to eat: and i would not send them away fasting, lest haply they faint on the way.
15.33 and the disciples say unto him, whence should we have so many loaves in a desert place as to fill so great a multitude?
15.34 and Yahusha said unto them, how many loaves have ye? And they said, seven, and a few small fishes.
15.35 and he commanded the multitude to sit down on the ground;
15.36 and he took the seven loaves and the fishes; and he gave thanks and brake, and gave to the disciples, and the disciples to the multitudes.
15.37 and they all ate, and were filled: and they took up that which remained over of the broken pieces, seven baskets full.
15.38 and they that did eat were four thousand men, besides women and children.
15.39 and he sent away the multitudes, and entered into the boat, and came into the borders of magdalah.
 
16.1 and pharisees and sadducees approached him, trying him and asking him to show them a sign from heaven.
16.2 but he answered and said unto them, when it is evening, ye say, it will be fair weather: for the heaven is red.
16.3 and in the morning ye say, today it will rain: for the heaven is dark. And behold ye know how to judge the face of the heaven, and ye cannot know the signs of the times.
16.4 a generation seeketh after a sign; and there shall no sign be given unto it, but the sign of jonah. And he left them, and departed.
16.5 and the disciples came to the other side and forgot to take bread.
16.6 and Yahusha said unto them, take heed and beware of the leaven of the pharisees and sadducees.
16.7 and they reasoned among themselves, saying, we took no bread.
16.8 and Yahusha perceiving it said, o ye of little faith, why reason ye among yourselves, because ye have no bread?
16.9 do ye not yet perceive, neither remember the five loaves of the five thousand, and how many baskets ye took up?
16.10 neither the seven loaves of the four thousand, and how many baskets ye took up?
16.11 how is it that ye do not perceive that i spake not to you concerning bread? But beware of the leaven of the pharisees and sadducees.
16.12 then understood they that he bade them not beware of the leaven of bread, but of the teaching of the pharisees and sadducees.
16.13 now when Yahusha came into the parts of caesarea philippi, he asked his disciples, saying, who do men say that the son of man is?
16.14 and they said, some say john the baptist; some, elijah; and others, jeremiah, or one of the prophets.
16.15 he saith unto them, but who say ye that i am?
16.16 and simon cephas answered and said, thou art the anointed, the son of the living YAH.
16.17-19 and Yahusha said unto him, blessed art thou, simon bar-jonah, for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but my father who is in heaven.
16.20 then charged he the disciples that they should tell no man that he was the anointed.
16.21 from that time began Yahusha to reveal unto his disciples, that he must go unto jerusalem, and suffer there many torments and many revilings of the priests and elders, and be killed, and rise up on the third day.
16.22 and cephas took him, and began to rebuke him, saying, be it far from thee, lord: this shall never be unto thee.
16.23 but he turned, and said unto cephas, get thee behind me, satan: thou art a stumbling-block unto me: for thou mindest not the things of YAH, but the things of men.
16.24 then said Yahusha unto his disciples, if any man would come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me.
16.25 for whosoever would save his life shall lose it: and whosoever shall lose his life for my sake shall find it.
16.26 for what shall a man be profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and forfeit his life? Or what shall a man give in exchange for his life?
16.27-28 for the son of man shall come in the glory of his father with his angels; and then shall he render unto every man according to his deeds.
 
17.1 and after six days Yahusha taketh with him cephas, and jacob, and john his brother, and bringeth them up into a high mountain apart:
17.2-4 and while he was praying, he was transfigured before them; and the skin of his face did shine as the sun, and his garments became white like snow.
17.5 and behold, a cloud covered them, and they feared very much; and while they were under the cloud, they heard from the midst of the cloud a voice speaking and saying: behold, this is my son, my beloved, and my delight is in him; hear ye him.
17.6 and when the disciples heard it, they fell on their face, and were sore afraid.
17.7 and Yahusha came and touched them and said, arise, and be not afraid.
17.8 and they lifted up their eyes, and did not see but Yahusha only.
17.9 and as they were coming down from the mountain, Yahusha commanded them, saying, tell the vision to no man, until the son of man be risen from the dead.
17.10 and his disciples asked him, saying, why say the scribes that elijah shall come first?
17.11-13 and he answered and said unto them, surely elijah shall come, and shall restore all things.
17.14 and when they were come to the multitude, there came to him a man, kneeling to him, saying,
17.15 lord, have mercy on my son: for he is epileptic, and suffereth grievously; for oft-times he falleth into the fire, and oft-times into the water.
17.16 and i brought him to thy disciples, and they could not cure him.
17.17 and Yahusha answered and said, o bad generation, woe unto you, ye who deny; how long shall i be with you? How long shall i bear your burden? Bring him to me.
17.18 and Yahusha rebuked him; and the demon went out of him: and the boy was cured at that hour.
17.19 then the disciples drew near to Yahusha secretly, and said to him: why could not we cast it out?
17.20-21 and he saith unto them, because of the minority of your faith. Verily i say unto you, if there be in you of the faith as a grain of mustard, if ye believe, ye shall say unto this mountain, move, and it shall move; and nothing shall be impossible unto you.
17.22 and while they abode in galilee, Yahusha said unto them, the son of man shall be delivered up into the hands of men;
17.23 and they shall kill him, and the third day he shall be raised up. And they were exceeding sorry.
17.24 and when they were come to capernaum, they that received the half-shekel came to cephas, and said, doth not your teacher pay the half-shekel?
17.25 he saith, yea. And when he came into the house, Yahusha spake first to him, saying, what thinkest thou, simon? The kings of the earth, from whom do they receive toll or tribute? From their sons, or from strangers?
17.26 and when he said, from strangers, Yahusha said unto him, therefore the sons are free.
17.27 but, lest we cause them to stumble, go thou to the sea, and cast a hook, and take up the fish that first cometh up; and when thou hast opened his mouth, thou shalt find a shekel: that take, and give unto them for me and thee.
 
18.1 in that hour came the disciples unto Yahusha, saying, who then is greatest in the kingdom of YAH?
18.2 and he called to him a little child, and set him in the midst of them,
18.3 and said, verily i say unto you, except ye turn, and become as little children, ye shall in no wise enter into the kingdom of YAH.
18.4 and whosoever shall humble himself as this little child, the same will be great in the kingdom of YAH.
18.5 and whoso shall receive one such little child in my name receiveth me:
18.6 but whoso shall cause one of these little ones that believe on me to stumble, it is profitable for him that a great millstone should be hanged about his neck, and that he should be sunk in the depth of the sea.
18.7-9 woe unto the world because of the perplexities, because the perplexities must come, but woe to the man through whom they come!
18.10-11 ant see that ye despise not one of these little childs.
18.12 how think ye? If any man have a hundred sheep, and one of them be gone astray, doth he not leave the ninety and nine, and go unto the mountains, and seek that which goeth astray?
18.13 and if so be that he find it, verily i say unto you, he rejoiceth over it more than over the ninety and nine which have not gone astray.
18.14 even so it is not the will of your father who is in heaven, that one of these little ones should perish.
18.15 at that time Yahusha said unto simon, called cephas: if thy brother sin, rebuke him between thee and him alone: if he hear thee, thou hast gained thy brother.
18.16 but if he hear thee not, take with thee one or two more, that at the mouth of two witnesses or three every word may be established.
18.17-35 and if he doth not hear them, tell him on the congregation: and if he doth not hear the congregation also, consider him as a gentile and a transgressor.
 
19.1 and it came to pass when Yahusha had finished these words, he departed from galilee, and came into the borders of judaea beyond the jordan;
19.2-12 and great multitudes followed him; and he healed all of them.
19.13 then were brought unto him children, that he should lay his hand on them, and pray for them: and the disciples rebuked them.
19.14 and Yahusha said unto them: allow the children, and forbid not them to come unto me.
19.15 and he laid his hands on them, and departed thence.
19.16 and a young man came to him and said to him: teacher, what good thing shall i do, that i acquire the life of the world to come?
19.17-20.16 and he answered unto him: if thou wantest to enter into the life of the world to come, keep the commandments of YAH.
 
20.17 and Yahusha approached to jerusalem, and he took the twelve disciples apart, and on the way he said unto them,
20.18 behold, we go up to jerusalem; and the son of man shall be delivered unto the great of the priests and of the scribes; and they shall condemn him to death,
20.19 and also shall deliver him unto the gentiles to smite him and to exterminate him; and on the third day he shall raise up.
20.20 then came to him the mother of the sons of zabdi with her sons, bowing down before him, and asking a certain thing of him.
20.21 and he said unto her, what wouldest thou? She saith unto him, command that these my two sons may sit, one on thy right hand, and one on thy left hand, in thy kingdom.
20.22 but Yahusha answered and said, ye know not what ye ask. Are ye able to drink the cup that i am about to drink? They say unto him, we are able.
20.23 he saith unto them, my cup indeed ye shall drink: but to sit on my right hand, and on my left hand, is not mine to give; but it is for them for whom it hath been prepared of my father.
20.24 and when the ten heard it, they were moved with indignation concerning the two brethren.
20.25 but Yahusha called them unto him, and said, ye know that the rulers of the gentiles lord it over them, and their great ones exercise authority over them.
20.26 not so shall it be among you: but whosoever would become great among you shall be your minister;
20.27 and whosoever would be first among you shall be your servant:
20.28 even as the son of man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give his life a ransom for many.
20.29 and as they went out from jericho, a great multitude followed him.
20.30 and behold, two blind men sitting by the way side, when they heard that Yahusha was passing by, cried out, saying, lord, have mercy on us, thou son of david.
20.31 and the multitude rebuked them, that they should hold their peace: but they cried out the more, saying, lord, have mercy on us, thou son of david.
20.32 and Yahusha stood still, and called them, and said, what will ye that i should do unto you?
20.33 they say unto him, lord, that our eyes may be opened.
20.34 and Yahusha had pity on them, and touched their eyes, and said unto them: your faith hath healed you; and immediately they saw, and they praised YAH, and followed him, and all the people praised YAH because of this.
 
21.1 and they drew near unto jerusalem, and came unto bethphage, unto the mount of olives, and Yahusha sent two of his disciples,
21.2 and said unto them, go into the village that is in front of you, and immediately ye shall find there an ass tied. Loose it and bring it unto me.
21.3 and if any one say aught unto you, ye say unto him, because the lord needeth it; and immediately he will leave it.
21.4 and this happened to be fulfilled which was spoken through the prophet, who said,
21.5 tell ye the daughter of zion, behold, thy king shall come unto thee, righteous and saved shall be he, humble, and riding upon an ass, and upon a donkey, son of asses.
21.6 and the disciples went, and did as Yahusha commanded them,
21.7 and they brought the ass, and put their garments on it; and Yahusha rode it.
21.8 and the most part of the multitude spread their garments in the way; and others cut branches from the trees, and spread them in the way.
21.9 and the multitudes that went before him, and after him, cried, saying, please, save to the son of david: blessed is he that cometh in the name of YAH. Please, save in the heights.
21.10 and when he was come into jerusalem, all the city was stirred, saying, who is this?
21.11 and the multitudes said, this is the prophet, Yahusha, from nazareth of galilee.
21.12 and Yahusha entered into the temple of YAH, and cast out all them that sold and bought in the temple, and overthrew the tables of the money-changers, and the seats of them that sold the doves;
21.13 and he saith unto them, it is written, my house shall be called a house of prayer: but ye make it a den of robbers.
21.14 and the blind and the lame came to him in the temple; and he healed them.
21.15 and the great of the priests and the scribes saw the miracles that he did, and the children that were crying in the temple and saying, hosanna to the son of david, and became angry,
21.16 and said unto him, hearest thou what these are saying? And Yahusha saith unto them, yea: did ye never read, out of the mouth of babes and sucklings thou has perfected praise?
21.17 and he left them, and went forth out of the city to bethany, and lodged there.
21.18-22 and in the morning he returned to the city.
 
21.23-22.14 and went to the sanctuary to teach.
22.15 then went the pharisees, and took counsel to capture him in a word.
22.16 and they sent to him their disciples, with the servants of herod, saying, teacher, we know that thou art true, and teachest the way of YAH in truth, and carest not for any one: for thou regardest not the person of men.
22.17 tell us therefore, what thinkest thou? Is it lawful to give tribute unto caesar, or not?
22.18 but Yahusha perceived their wickedness, and said, why make ye trial of me, ye hypocrites?
22.19 show me the tribute money. And they brought unto him a denarius.
22.20 and he saith unto them, whose is this image and superscription?
22.21 they say unto him, caesar’s. Then saith he unto them, render therefore unto caesar the things that are caesar’s; and unto YAH the things that are YAH’s.
22.22-33 and when they heard it, they marvelled, and left him, and went away.
22.34 and the pharisees gathered themselves together.
22.35 and one of them, a lawyer, asked him a question, trying him:
22.36 teacher, which is the great commandment in the law?
22.37 and Yahusha answered him and said: hear, israel: YAH IS our YAH; YAH is one; and thou shalt love YAH thy YAH with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy MIgth.
22.38 this is the great commandment of all the law, and this is the first.
22.39 and the second, SIMILAR TO it, is: thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself.
22.40-46 on these two commandments the whole law hangeth, and the prophets.
 
23.1 then spake Yahusha to the multitudes and to his disciples,
23.2 saying, the pharisees and the scribes sit on moses seat:
23.3-12 and all that he said unto you, observe and do: but do not according to their regulations and their works; for they interpret and they bind heavy burdens, and hard to bear, and lay them on men’s shoulders.
23.13 woe unto you, scribes and pharisees hypocrites! Because ye shut the kingdom of YAH before men, because ye enter not, and those who wish to enter ye permit not them to enter.
23.14 woe unto you, pharisees an scribes, hypocrites! For ye devour and divide the wealth of the widows, with long interpretation; for this ye shall suffer a long punishment.
23.15 woe unto you, pharisees and scribes, hypocrites! For ye compass sea and land to make one proselyte; and when he is made, ye make him a son of gehenna twice more than yourselves.
23.16 woe unto you, ye blind guides, that say, whosoever shall swear by the temple, is not obligated; but whosoever shall swear by the gold of the temple, he is obligated.
23.17 ye fools and blind: for which is greater, the gold, or the temple that hath sanctified the gold?
23.18 and, whosoever shall swear by the altar, is not obligated; but whosoever shall swear by the gift that is upon it, he is obligated.
23.19 ye blind: for which is greater, the gift, or the altar that sanctifieth the gift?
23.20 he therefore that sweareth by the altar, sweareth by it, and by all things thereon.
23.21 and he that sweareth by the temple, sweareth by it, and by him that dwelleth therein.
23.22 and he that sweareth by the heaven, sweareth by the throne of YAH, and by him that sitteth thereon.
23.23 woe unto you, pharisees and scribes, hypocrites! For ye tithe mint and anise and cummin, and leave what is more important in the law, justice, and mercy, and faith: ye ought to do these, and not to neglect those.
23.24-39 ye blind guides, that strain out the gnat, and swallow the camel!
 
24.1 and it came to pass that, when Yahusha went out from the sanctuary, and when he was walking, his disciples approached to show him the buildings of the sanctuary.
24.2 and he answered and said, see all these things; verily i say to you that everything shall be destroyed, and shall not remain there stone upon stone.
24.3 and as he sat on the mount of olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, tell us, when shall these things be? And what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world?
24.4 and Yahusha answered unto them, keep yourselves that no man lead you astray.
24.5 for many shall come in my name, saying, i am the anointed; and shall lead many astray.
24.6 and ye shall hear of wars and rumors of wars; see that ye be not troubled: for these things must needs come to pass; but the end is not yet.
24.7 for nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom; and there shall be famines and earthquakes in divers places.
24.8-10 but all these things are the beginning of travail.
24.11 and many false prophets shall arise, and shall lead many astray.
24.12 and because iniquity shall be multiplied, the love of the many shall wax cold.
24.13 but he that endureth to the end, the same shall be saved.
24.14 and this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in the whole world for a testimony unto all the nations; and then shall the end come.
24.15 when therefore ye see the abomination of desolation, which was spoken of through daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place (let him that readeth understand),
24.16 then let them that are in judaea flee unto the mountains:
24.17 let him that is on the housetop not go down to take out things that are in his house:
24.18 and let him that is in the field not return back to take his cloak.
24.19 but woe unto them that are with child and to them that give suck in those days!
24.20 and pray ye that your flight be not in the winter, neither on a sabbath:
24.21 for then shall be great tribulation, such as hath not been from the beginning of the world until now, no, nor ever shall be.
24.22 and except those days had been shortened, no flesh would have been saved: but for the elect’s sake those days shall be shortened.
24.23 then if any man shall say unto you, lo, here is the anointed, or, here; believe it not.
24.24 for there shall arise false anointeds, and false prophets, and shall show great signs and wonders; so as to lead astray, if possible, even the elect.
24.25 behold, i have told you beforehand.
24.26 if therefore they shall say unto you, behold, he is in the wilderness; go not forth: behold, he is in the inner chambers; believe it not.
24.27 for as the lightning cometh forth from the east, and is seen even unto the west; so shall be the coming of the son of man.
24.28 wheresoever the carcase is, there will the eagles be gathered together.
24.29 but immediately after the tribulation of those days the sun shall be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken:
24.30 and then shall appear the sign of the son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the son of man coming on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.
24.31 and he shall send forth his messengers with trumpet and a great sound, to gather his elect from the four winds of the sky, from one end of the sky to its ends.
24.32 now from the fig tree learn her parable: when her branch is now become tender, and putteth forth its leaves, ye know that the summer is nigh;
24.33 even so ye also, when ye see all these things, know ye that he is nigh, even at the doors.
24.34 verily i say unto you, this generation shall not pass away, till all these things be accomplished.
24.35 heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.
24.36 but of that day and of that time knoweth no one, not even the angels of heaven, but my father only.
24.37 and as were the days of noah, so shall be the coming of the son of man.
24.38 for as in those days which were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that noah entered into the ark,
24.39-41 and they knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall be the coming of the son of man.
24.42 watch therefore: for ye know not on what day your lord cometh.
24.43 but know this, that if the master of the house had known in what watch the thief was coming, he would have watched, and would not have suffered his house to be broken through.
24.44 therefore be ye also ready; for in an hour that ye think not the son of man cometh.
24.45 who then is the faithful and wise servant, whom his lord hath set over his household, to give them their food in due season?
24.46 blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he cometh shall find so doing.
24.47 verily i say unto you, that he will set him over all that he hath.
24.48 but if that evil servant shall say in his heart, my lord tarrieth;
24.49 and shall begin to beat his fellow-servants, and shall eat and drink with the drunken;
24.50 the lord of that servant shall come in a day when he expecteth not, and in an hour when he knoweth not,
24.51 and shall cut him asunder, and appoint his portion with the hypocrites: there shall be the weeping and the gnashing of teeth.
 
25.1 then shall the kingdom of YAH be likened unto ten virgins, who took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom.
25.2 and five of them were foolish, and five were wise.
25.3 for the foolish, when they took their lamps, took no oil with them:
25.4 but the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps.
25.5 now while the bridegroom tarried, they all slumbered and slept.
25.6 but at midnight there is a cry, behold, the bridegroom! Come ye forth to meet him.
25.7 then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps.
25.8 and the foolish said unto the wise, give us of your oil; for our lamps are going out.
25.9 but the wise answered, saying, we will not give to you, lest it will not be enough for us and you: go ye rather to them that sell, and buy for yourselves.
25.10 and when they went away to buy, the bridegroom came; and they that were ready went in with him to the marriage feast: and the door was shut.
25.11 afterward came the foolish, saying, our lord, open to us.
25.12 but he answered and said, verily i say unto you, i know you not.
25.13-30 watch therefore, for ye know not the day nor the hour in which the son of man shall come.
25.31 and when the son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit on the throne of his glory;
25.32 and before him shall be gathered all the nations; and he shall separate them one from another, as the shepherd separateth the sheep from the goats;
25.33 and he shall set the sheep on his right, and the goats on his left.
25.34-40 then shall the king say unto them on his right, come, ye blessed of my father, inherit the kingdom that is prepared for you from the foundation of the world.
25.41-45 and then shall he say unto them on the left, depart from me, ye cursed, into the eternal fire which is prepared for the satan and his angels.
25.46 and these shall go into eternal punishment, and the righteous into eternal life.
 
26.1 and it came to pass, when Yahusha had finished all these words, he said unto his disciples,
26.2 ye know that after two days the passover cometh, and the son of man is delivered up to be crucified.
26.3 then were gathered together the chief priests, and the elders of the people, unto the court of the high priest, who was called caiaphas;
26.4 and they took counsel together that they might take Yahusha by subtlety, and kill him.
26.5 but they said, not during the feast, lest a tumult arise among people.
26.6 now when Yahusha was in bethany, in the house of simon the leper,
26.7 there came unto him a woman having an alabaster cruse of exceeding precious ointment, and she poured it upon his head, as he sat at meat.
26.8 but when the disciples saw it, they had indignation, saying, to what purpose is this waste?
26.9 for this ointment might have been sold for much, and given to the poor.
26.10 but Yahusha perceiving it said unto them, why trouble ye the woman? For she hath wrought a good work upon me.
26.11 for ye have the poor always with you; but me ye have not always.
26.12 for in that she poured this ointment upon my body, she did it to prepare me for burial.
26.13 verily i say unto you, wheresoever this gospel shall be preached in the whole world, that also which this woman hath done shall be spoken of for a memorial of her.
26.14 then one of the twelve, who was called judah iscariot, went unto the chief priests,
26.15 and said, what are ye willing to give me, and i will deliver him unto you? And they weighed unto him thirty pieces of silver.
26.16 and from that time he sought opportunity to deliver him unto them.
26.17 now on the first day of unleavened bread the disciples came to Yahusha, saying, where wilt thou that we make ready for thee to eat the passover?
26.18 and he said, go into the city to such a man, and say unto him, the teacher saith, my time is at hand; i keep the passover at thy house with my disciples.
26.19 and the disciples did as Yahusha appointed them; and they made ready the passover.
26.20 now when even was come, he was sitting at meat with the twelve disciples;
26.21 and as they were eating, he said, verily i say unto you, that one of you shall betray me.
26.22 and they were exceeding sorrowful, and began to say unto him every one, is it i, lord?
26.23 and he answered and said, he that dipped his hand with me in the dish, the same shall betray me.
26.24 the son of man goeth, even as it is written of him: but woe unto that man through whom the son of man is betrayed! Good were it for that man if he had not been born.
26.25 and judah, who betrayed him, answered and said, is it i, rabbi? He saith unto him, thou hast said.
26.26 and they were eating, and Yahusha took bread, and blessed, and broke it, and gave to the disciples, and said, take and eat.
26.27-28 and he took the cup, and blessed, and gave to them, and said, drink of it ye all.
26.29 and i say unto you, i shall not drink henceforth of this fruit of the vine, until that day when i drink it new with you in the kingdom of my father.
26.30 and when they had sung a hymn, they went out unto the mount of olives.
26.31 then saith Yahusha unto them, all ye shall be offended in me this night: for it is written, i will smite the shepherd, and the sheep of the flock shall be scattered abroad.
26.32 but after i am raised up, i will go before you into galilee.
26.33 but cephas answered and said unto him, if all shall be offended in thee, i will never be offended.
26.34 Yahusha said unto him, verily i say unto thee, that this night, before the cock crow, thou shalt deny me thrice.
26.35 cephas saith unto him, even if i must die with thee, yet will i not deny thee. Likewise also said all the disciples.
26.36 then cometh Yahusha with them unto a place called gethsemane, and saith unto his disciples, sit ye here, while i go yonder and pray.
26.37 and he took with him cephas and the two sons of zabdi, and began to be sorrowful and sore troubled.
26.38 then saith he unto them, my soul is exceeding sorrowful, even unto death: abide ye here, and watch with me.
26.39 and he went forward a little, and fell on his face, and prayed, saying, my father, if it be possible, let this cup pass away from me: nevertheless, not as i will, but as thou wilt.
26.40 and he cometh unto the disciples, and findeth them sleeping, and saith unto cephas, what, could ye not watch with me one hour?
26.41 watch and pray, that ye enter not into temptation: the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.
26.42 again a second time he went away, and prayed, saying, my father, if this cannot pass away, except i drink it, thy will be done.
26.43 and he came again and found them sleeping, for their eyes were heavy.
26.44 and he left them again, and went away, and prayed a third time, saying again the same words.
26.45 then cometh he to the disciples, and saith unto them, sleep on now, and take your rest: behold, the hour is at hand, and the son of man is betrayed into the hands of sinners.
26.46 arise, let us be going: behold, he is at hand that betrayeth me.
26.47 and while he yet spake, lo, judah, one of the twelve, came, and with him a great multitude with swords and staves, from the chief priest and elders of the people.
26.48 now he that betrayed him gave them a sign, saying, whomsoever i shall kiss, that is he: take him.
26.49 and straightway he came near to Yahusha, and said, peace upon thee, rabbi, and kissed him.
26.50 and Yahusha said unto him, friend, do that for which thou art come. Then they came and laid hands on Yahusha, and took him.
26.51 and behold, one of them that were with Yahusha stretched out his hand, and drew his sword, and smote the servant of the high priest, and struck off his ear.
26.52 then saith Yahusha unto him, put up again thy sword into its place: for all they that take the sword shall perish with the sword.
26.53 or thinkest thou that i cannot beseech my father, and he shall even now send me more than twelve legions of angels?
26.54 how then should the scriptures be fulfilled that thus it must be?
26.55 in that hour said Yahusha to the multitudes, are ye come out as against a robber with swords and staves to seize me? I sat daily in the temple teaching, and ye took me not.
26.56 but all this is come to pass, that the scriptures of the prophets might be fulfilled. Then all the disciples left him, and fled.
26.57 and they that had taken Yahusha led him away to the house of caiaphas the high priest, where the scribes and the elders were gathered together.
26.58 but cephas followed him afar off, unto the court of the high priest, and entered in, and sat with the officers, to see the end.
26.59 now the chief priests and the whole council sought false witness against Yahusha, that they might put him to death;
26.60 and they found it not, though many false witnesses came. But afterward came two,
26.61 and said, this man said, i am able to destroy the temple of YAH, and to build it in three days.
26.62 and the high priest stood up, and said unto him, answerest thou nothing? What is it which these witness against thee?
26.63 but Yahusha held his peace. And the high priest said unto him, i adjure thee by the living YAH, that thou tell us whether thou art the anointed, the son of YAH.
26.64 and Yahusha answered and said unto him, i am; and truly i say unto you, henceforth ye shall see the son of man sitting at the right hand of YAH, and coming on the clouds of the sky.
26.65 then the high priest rent his garments, saying, he hath spoken blasphemy: what further need have we of witnesses? Behold, now ye have heard the blasphemy:
26.66 what think ye? They answered and said, he is worthy of death.
26.67 then did they spit in his face and buffet him: and some smote him with the palms of their hands,
26.68 saying, prophesy unto us, thou anointed: who is he that struck thee?
26.69 now cephas was sitting without in the court: and a maid came unto him, saying, thou also wast with Yahusha the galilaean.
26.70 but he denied before them all, saying, i know not what thou sayest.
26.71 and when he was gone out into the porch, another maid saw him, and saith unto them that were there, this man also was with Yahusha of nazareth.
26.72 and again he denied with an oath, i know not the man.
26.73 and after a little while they that stood by came and said to cephas, of a truth thou also art one of them; for thy speech maketh thee known.
26.74 then began he to curse and to swear, i know not the man. And straightway the cock crew.
26.75 and cephas remembered the word which Yahusha had said, before the cock crow, thou shalt deny me thrice. And he went out, and wept bitterly.
 
27.1 and came the morning, and all the chief priests and the elders of the people took counsel against Yahusha to deliver him to death:
27.2 and they bound him, and led him away, and delivered him up to pilate the governor.
27.3 then judah, who betrayed him, when he saw that he was condemned, repented himself, and brought back the thirty pieces of silver to the chief priests and elders,
27.4 saying, i have sinned in that i betrayed innocent blood. But they said, what is that to us? See thou to it.
27.5 and he cast down the thirty pieces of silver into the temple, and went away, and took a rope, and hanged himself.
27.6 and the chief priests took the pieces of silver, and said, it is not lawful to put them into the treasury, since it is the price of blood.
27.7 and they took counsel, and bought with them the potter’s field, to bury strangers in.
27.8 wherefore that field was called, the field of blood, unto this day.
27.9 then was fulfilled that which was spoken through zachariah the prophet, and i said unto them , if it is good at your eyes, give me my payment, and if not, leave; and they weighed my payment, thirty pieces of silver; and YAH said unto me, throw them to the potter, the greatness of the value in which i was valued by them; [10]
27.10 and they gave them for the potter’s field, as the lord ordained.
27.11 now Yahusha stood before the governor: and the governor asked him, saying, art thou the king of the jews? And Yahusha said unto him, thou sayest.
27.12 and when he was accused by the chief priests and elders, he answered nothing.
27.13 then saith pilate unto him, hearest thou not how many things they witness against thee?
27.14-23 and Yahusha did not answer him anything; and pilate was marvelled of this very much. And was the preparation of the passover.[11]
27.24-26 and pilate tortured Yahusha with whips, and delivered him to be crucified.
27.27 then the soldiers of the governor took Yahusha into the praetorium, and gathered unto him the whole band.
27.28 and they stripped him, and put on him a scarlet robe.
27.29 and they platted a crown of thorns and put it upon his head, and a reed in his right hand; and they kneeled down before him, and mocked him, saying, hail, king of the jews!
27.30 and they spat upon him, and took the reed and smote him on the head.
27.31 and when they had mocked him, they took off from him the robe, and put on him his garments, and led him away to crucify him.
27.32 and they came out, and they found a man of cyrene, simon by name, and they compelled him to carry his cross.
27.33 and they were come unto a place called golgotha, that is to say, the place of a skull,
27.34 they gave him wine to drink mingled with gall: and when he had tasted it, he would not drink.
27.35 and when they had crucified him, they parted his garments among them, casting lots;
27.36 and they sat and watched him there.
27.37 and they set up over his head his accusation written, this is Yahusha the king of the jews.
27.38 then are there crucified with him two robbers, one on the right hand and one on the left.
27.39 and they that passed by railed on him, wagging their heads,
27.40 and saying, thou that destroyest the temple, and buildest it in three days, save thyself: if thou art the son of YAH, come down from the cross.
27.41 in like manner also the chief priests mocking him, with the scribes and elders, said,
27.42 he saved others; himself he cannot save. He is the king of israel; let him now come down from the cross, and we will believe on him.
27.43 he trusteth on YAH; let him deliver him now, if he desireth him: for he said, i am the son of YAH.
27.44 and the robbers also that were crucified with him cast upon him the same reproach.
27.45 now from the sixth hour there was darkness over all the land until the ninth hour.
27.46 and about the ninth hour Yahusha cried with a loud voice, saying, my YAH, my YAH, why hast thou forsaken me?
27.47 and some of them stood there, when they heard it, said, this man calleth elijah.
27.48 and straightway one of them ran, and took a sponge, and filled it with vinegar, and put it on a reed, and gave him to drink.
27.49 and the rest said, let be; let us see whether elijah cometh to save him.
27.50-54 and Yahusha cried again with a loud voice, and sent his spirit unto his father.
27.55 and many women were there beholding from afar, who had followed Yahusha from galilee, ministering unto him:
27.27.56 among whom was miriam the magdalene, and miriam the mother of jacob and joses, and the mother of the sons of zabdi.
27.57 and at the sunset, came a rich man from arimathaea, named joseph, who also himself was Yahusha’ disciple:
27.58 this man went to pilate, and asked for the body of Yahusha. Then, pilate commanded to give the body of Yahusha.
27.59 and joseph took the body, and wrapped it in a clean linen cloth,
27.60 and laid it in his own new tomb, which he had hewn out in the rock: and he rolled a great stone to the door of the tomb, and departed.
27.61-66 and miriam the magdalene and the other miriam were there, sitting in front of the sepulchre.
27.66-a and when passed the holiday, miriam the magdalene, and miriam mother of jacob, and shelomith, bought sweet spices, that they might come and anoint him.[12]
27.66-b and on the sabbath, they rested, according to the commandment.[13]
28.1 and on the first day of the week, in the early morning, came miriam magdalene and the other miriam to see the sepulchre.
 
28.1-a and they looked and saw that the stone was rolled; and it was very great.[14]
28.2-b-28.4 and they entered into the tomb, and they saw a young man sitting at the right, and he wore white dress, and they wondered.[15]
28.5 and he said to them, wonder not ye;[16] i know that ye seek Yahusha, who hath been crucified.
28.6 he is not here, for he rised, as he said. Come and see the place where the lord was laid.
28.7 and go quickly, and tell his disciples that he rised from the dead; and lo, he goeth before you into galilee, and there shall ye see him, as he said to you.
28.8 and they departed quickly from the tomb with fear and great joy, and ran to tell to his disciples.
28.9 and when they ran to tell to his disciples, behold, Yahusha came to them, saying, peace for you. And they came and took hold of his feet, and bowed down before him.
28.10-15 then saith Yahusha unto them, fear not: go and tell my brethren that they go into galilee, and there shall they see me.
28.16 and after this, when his eleven disciples went into galilee, he appeared to them at the mountain where they had prayed.
28.17 and when they saw him, they bowed down before him; and they doubted.
28.18 and Yahusha approached to them and said unto them,
28.19-20 go ye, and teach them to fulfill all things that i commanded you forever.[17]
28.20-a and he went aside from them, and was lifted into heaven.[18]
