40-1:1††††† The book of the generation of Jesus Christ, the son of David, the son of Abraham.

40-1:2††††† Abraham begat Isaac; and Isaac begat Jacob; and Jacob begat Judah and his brethren;

40-1:3††††† And Judah begat Phares and Zara of Thamar; and Phares begat Esrom; and Esrom begat Aram;

40-1:4††††† And Aram begat Aminadab; and Aminadab begat Naasson; and Naasson begat Salmon;

40-1:5††††† And Salmon begat Booz of Rachab; and Booz begat Obed of Ruth; and Obed begat Jesse;

40-1:6††††† And Jesse begat David the king; and David the king begat Solomon of her that had been the wife of Uriah;

40-1:7††††† And Solomon begat Roboam; and Roboam begat Abia; and Abia begat Asa;

40-1:8††††† And Asa begat Josaphat; and Josaphat begat Joram; and Joram begat Ozias;

40-1:9††††† And Ozias begat Joatham; and Joatham begat Achaz; and Achaz begat Ezekias;

40-1:10†††† And Ezekias begat Manasses; and Manasses begat Amon; and Amon begat Josias;

40-1:11†††† And Josias begat Jechonias and his brethren, about the time they were carried away to Babylon:

40-1:12†††† And after they were brought to Babylon, Jechonias begat Salathiel; and Salathiel begat Zorobabel;

40-1:13†††† And Zorobabel begat Abiud; and Abiud begat Eliakim; and Eliakim begat Azor;

40-1:14†††† And Azor begat Sadoc; and Sadoc begat Achim; and Achim begat Eliud;

40-1:15†††† And Eliud begat Eleazar; and Eleazar begat Matthan; and Matthan begat Jacob;

40-1:16†††† And Jacob begat Joseph the husband of Mary, of whom was born Jesus, who is called Christ.

40-1:17†††† So all the generations from Abraham to David are fourteen generations; and from David until the carrying away into Babylon are fourteen generations; and from the carrying away into Babylon to Christ are fourteen generations.

40-1:18†††† Now the birth of Jesus Christ was in this manner: When his mother Mary was espoused to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child by the Holy Spirit.

40-1:19†††† Then Joseph her husband, being a just man, and not willing to make her a public example, purposed to put her away privately.

40-1:20†††† But while he thought on these things, the angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream, saying, Joseph, thou son of David, fear not to take to thee Mary thy wife: for that which is conceived in her is by the Holy Spirit.

40-1:21†††† And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins.

40-1:22†††† Now all this was done, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken from the Lord by the prophet, saying,

40-1:23†††† Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us.

40-1:24†††† Then Joseph, being raised from sleep, did as the angel of the Lord had bidden him, and took to him his wife:

40-1:25†††† And knew her not till she had brought forth her first-born son: and he called his name JESUS.

40-2:2††††† Saying, Where is he that is born king of the Jews? for we have seen his star in the east, and have come to worship him.

40-2:3††††† When Herod the king had heard these things, he was troubled, and all Jerusalem with him.

40-2:4††††† And when he had assembled all the chief priests and scribes of the people, he inquired of them where Christ should be born.

40-2:5††††† And they said to him, In Bethlehem of Judea: for thus it is written by the prophet,

40-2:6††††† And thou Bethlehem, in the land of Judah, art not the least among the princes of Judah: for out of thee shall come a Governor, that shall rule my people Israel.

40-2:7††††† Then Herod, when he had privately called the wise men, inquired of them diligently what time the star appeared.

40-2:8††††† And he sent them to Bethlehem, and said, Go, and search diligently for the young child; and when ye have found him, bring me word again, that I may come and worship him also.

40-2:9††††† When they had heard the king, they departed; and lo, the star, which they saw in the east, went before them, till it came and stood over where the young child was.

40-2:10†††† When they saw the star, they rejoiced with exceeding great joy.

40-2:11†††† And when they had come into the house, they saw the young child with Mary his mother, and fell down, and worshiped him: and when they had opened their treasures, they presented to him gifts; gold, and frankincense, and myrrh.

40-2:12†††† And being warned by God in a dream that they should not return to Herod, they departed into their own country another way.

40-2:14†††† When he arose, he took the young child and his mother by night, and departed into Egypt:

40-2:15†††† And was there until the death of Herod: that it might be fulfilled which was spoken from the Lord by the prophet, saying, Out of Egypt have I called my son.

40-2:16†††† Then Herod, when he saw that he was mocked by the wise men, was exceeding wroth, and sent forth, and slew all the children that were in Bethlehem, and in all its borders, from two years old and under, according to the time which he had diligently inquired of the wise men.

40-2:17†††† Then was fulfilled that which was spoken by Jeremiah the prophet, saying,

40-2:18†††† In Rama was there a voice heard, lamentation, and weeping, and great mourning, Rachel weeping for her children, and would not be comforted, because they are not.

40-2:19†††† But when Herod was dead, behold, an angel of the Lord appeareth in a dream to Joseph in Egypt,

40-2:20†††† Saying, Arise, and take the young child and his mother, and go into the land of Israel: for they are dead who sought the young child's life.

40-2:21†††† And he arose, and took the young child and his mother, and came into the land of Israel.

40-2:22†††† But when he heard that Archelaus reigned in Judea in the room of his father Herod, he was afraid to go thither: notwithstanding, being warned by God in a dream, he turned aside into the parts of Galilee:

40-2:23†††† And he came and dwelt in a city called Nazareth: that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophets, He shall be called a Nazarene.

40-3:4††††† And the same John had his raiment of camel's hair, and a leathern girdle about his loins; and his food was locusts and wild honey.

40-3:5††††† Then went out to him Jerusalem, and all Judea, and all the region about Jordan,

40-3:6††††† And were baptized by him in Jordan, confessing their sins.

40-3:7††††† But when he saw many of the Pharisees and Sadducees come to his baptism, he said to them, O generation of vipers, who hath warned you to flee from the wrath to come?

40-3:8††††† Bring forth therefore fruits meet for repentance:

40-3:9††††† And think not to say within yourselves, We have Abraham for our father: for I say to you, that God is able of these stones to raise up children to Abraham.

40-3:10†††† And now also the ax is laid to the root of the trees: therefore every tree which bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.

40-3:11†††† I indeed baptize you with water to repentance: but he that cometh after me is mightier than I, whose shoes I am not worthy to bear: he shall baptize you with the Holy Spirit, and with fire:

40-3:12†††† Whose fan is in his hand, and he will thoroughly cleanse his floor, and gather his wheat into the granary; but he will burn the chaff with unquenchable fire.

40-3:13†††† Then cometh Jesus from Galilee to Jordan to John, to be baptized by him.

40-3:14†††† But John forbad him, saying, I have need to be baptized by thee, and comest thou to me?

40-3:15†††† And Jesus answering said to him, Suffer it to be so now: for thus it becometh us to fulfill all righteousness. Then he suffered him.

40-3:16†††† And Jesus, when he was baptized, went up immediately out of the water: and lo, the heavens were opened to him, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove, and lighting upon him:

40-3:17†††† And lo, a voice from heaven, saying, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.

40-4:6††††† And saith to him, If thou art the Son of God, cast thyself down, for it is written, He shall give his angels charge concerning thee: and in their hands they shall uphold thee, lest at any time thou dash thy foot against a stone.

40-4:7††††† Jesus said to him, It is written again, Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God.

40-4:9††††† And saith to him, All these things will I give thee, if thou wilt fall down and worship me.

40-5:1††††† And seeing the multitudes, he ascended a mountain: and when he was seated, his disciples came to him.

40-5:2††††† And he opened his mouth, and taught them, saying,

40-5:3††††† Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

40-5:4††††† Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted.

40-5:5††††† Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth.

40-5:6††††† Blessed are they who hunger and thirst for righteousness: for they shall be filled.

40-5:7††††† Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy.

40-5:8††††† Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God.

40-5:9††††† Blessed are the peace-makers: for they shall be called children of God.

40-5:10†††† Blessed are they who are persecuted for righteousness' sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

40-5:11†††† Blessed are ye when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake.

40-5:12†††† Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so they persecuted the prophets who were before you.

40-5:13†††† Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt hath lost its savor, with what shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot by men.

40-5:14†††† Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hid.

40-5:15†††† Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a close vessel, but on a candlestick: and it giveth light to all that are in the house.

40-5:16†††† Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father who is in heaven.

40-5:17†††† Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfill.

40-5:18†††† For verily I say to you, Till heaven and earth shall pass away, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.

40-5:19†††† Whoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whoever shall do, and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.

40-5:20†††† For I say to you, That except your righteousness shall exceed the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, ye shall in no case enter into the kingdom of heaven.

40-5:21†††† Ye have heard that it was said to them of old time, Thou shalt not kill; and whoever shall kill, shall be in danger of the judgment:

40-5:22†††† But I say to you, That whoever is angry with his brother without a cause, shall be in danger of the judgment: and whoever shall say to his brother, Raca, shall be in danger of the council: but whoever shall say, Thou fool, shall be in danger of hell-fire.

40-5:23†††† Therefore if thou shalt bring thy gift to the altar, and there remember that thy brother hath aught against thee;

40-5:24†††† Leave there thy gift before the altar, and go thy way; first be reconciled to thy brother, and then come and offer thy gift.

40-5:25†††† Agree with thy adversary quickly, while thou art in the way with him; lest at any time the adversary deliver thee to the judge, and the judge deliver thee to the officer, and thou be cast into prison.

40-5:26†††† Verily, I say to thee, thou shalt by no means come out thence, till thou hast paid the uttermost farthing.

40-5:27†††† Ye have heard that it was said to them of old time, Thou shalt not commit adultery:

40-5:28†††† But I say to you, That whoever looketh on a woman to lust after her, hath committed adultery with her already in his heart.

40-5:29†††† And if thy right eye shall cause thee to sin, pluck it out, and cast it from thee: for it is profitable for thee that one of thy members should perish, and not that thy whole body should be cast into hell.

40-5:30†††† And if thy right hand shall cause thee to sin, cut it off, and cast it from thee: for it is profitable for thee that one of thy members should perish, and not that thy whole body should be cast into hell.

40-5:31†††† It hath been said, Whoever shall put away his wife, let him give her a writing of divorcement:

40-5:32†††† But I say to you, That whoever shall put away his wife, saving for the cause of lewdness, causeth her to commit adultery: and whoever shall marry her that is divorced, committeth adultery.

40-5:33†††† Again, ye have heard that it hath been said to them of old time, Thou shalt not forswear thyself, but shalt perform to the Lord thy oaths:

40-5:34†††† But I say to you, Swear not at all: neither by heaven; for it is God's throne:

40-5:35†††† Nor by the earth; for it is his footstool: neither by Jerusalem; for it is the city of the great King,

40-5:36†††† Neither shalt thou swear by thy head, because thou canst not make one hair white or black.

40-5:37†††† But let your communication be, Yea, yea, Nay, nay: for whatever is more than these cometh of evil.

40-5:38†††† Ye have heard that it hath been said, An eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth.

40-5:39†††† But I say to you, That ye resist not evil: but whoever shall strike thee on thy right cheek, turn to him the other also.

40-5:40†††† And if any man will sue thee at the law, and take away thy coat, let him have thy cloke also.

40-5:41†††† And whoever shall constrain thee to go one mile, go with him two.

40-5:42†††† Give to him that asketh thee, and from him that would borrow of thee, turn not thou away.

40-5:43†††† Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbor, and hate thy enemy:

40-5:44†††† But I say to you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them who despitefully use you, and persecute you;

40-5:45†††† That ye may be the children of your Father who is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust.

40-5:46†††† For if ye love them who love you, what reward have ye? do not even the publicans the same?

40-5:47†††† And if ye salute your brethren only, what do ye more than others? do not even the publicans so?

40-5:48†††† Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father who is in heaven is perfect.

Chapter 6:34 Verses

40 Matthew

(Websters) .

40-6:1††††† Take heed that ye do not your alms before men, to be seen by them: otherwise ye have no reward from your Father who is in heaven.

40-6:2††††† Therefore, when thou doest thy alms, do not sound a trumpet before thee, as the hypocrites do, in the synagogues, and in the streets, that they may have glory from men. Verily, I say to you, they have their reward.

40-6:3††††† But when thou doest alms, let not thy left hand know what thy right hand doeth:

40-6:4††††† That thy alms may be in secret; and thy Father who seeth in secret, himself will reward thee openly.

40-6:5††††† And when thou prayest, thou shalt not be as the hypocrites are: for they love to pray standing in the synagogues, and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen by men. Verily, I say to you, they have their reward.

40-6:6††††† But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father who is in secret, and thy Father who seeth in secret, will reward thee openly.

40-6:7††††† But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking.

40-6:8††††† Therefore be ye not like them: for your Father knoweth what things ye need before ye ask him.

40-6:9††††† After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father who art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.

40-6:10†††† Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.

40-6:11†††† Give us this day our daily bread.

40-6:12†††† And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.

40-6:13†††† And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.

40-6:14†††† For, if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you:

40-6:15†††† But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.

40-6:16†††† Moreover, when ye fast, be not as the hypocrites, of a sad countenance: for they disfigure their faces, that they may appear to men to fast. Verily, I say to you, they have their reward.

40-6:17†††† But thou, when thou fastest, anoint thy head, and wash thy face;

40-6:18†††† That thou mayest not appear to men to fast, but to thy Father, who is in secret: and thy Father, who seeth in secret, shall reward thee openly.

40-6:19†††† Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal:

40-6:20†††† But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal.

40-6:21†††† For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.

40-6:22†††† The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thy eye be single, thy whole body will be full of light.

40-6:23†††† But if thy eye be evil, thy whole body will be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in thee is darkness, how great is that darkness!

40-6:24†††† No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.

40-6:25†††† Therefore I say to you, Be not anxious for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than food, and the body than raiment?

40-6:26†††† Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they?

40-6:27†††† Which of you by anxious care can add one cubit to his stature?

40-6:28†††† And why are ye anxious for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field how they grow? they toil not, neither do they spin?

40-6:29†††† And yet I say to you, that even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.

40-6:30†††† Wherefore, if God so clotheth the grass of the field, which to-day is, and to-morrow is cast into the oven, will he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith?

40-6:31†††† Therefore be not anxious, saying, What shall we eat? or what shall we drink? or, with what shall we be clothed?

40-6:32†††† (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things.

40-6:33†††† But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.

40-6:34†††† Therefore be not anxious for the morrow: for the morrow will be solicitous for the things of itself. Sufficient to the day is its own evil.

40 Matthew

40-7:1††††† Judge not, that ye be not judged.

40-7:2††††† For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and the measure which ye give, shall be measured to you again.

40-7:3††††† And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother's eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thy own eye?

40-7:4††††† Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the mote out of thy eye; and behold, a beam is in thy own eye?

40-7:5††††† Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thy own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother's eye.

40-7:6††††† Give not that which is holy to dogs, neither cast ye your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn again and rend you.

40-7:7††††† Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and the door shall be opened to you:

40-7:8††††† For every one that asketh, receiveth; and he that seeketh, findeth; and to him that knocketh, the door shall be opened.

40-7:9††††† Or what man is there of you, who, if his son shall ask bread, will give him a stone?

40-7:10†††† Or if he shall ask a fish, will he give him a serpent?

40-7:11†††† If ye then being evil know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more shall your Father who is in heaven give good things to them that ask him?

40-7:12†††† Therefore all things whatever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them: for this is the law and the prophets.

40-7:13†††† Enter ye in at the strait gate; for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there are who go in by it.

40-7:14†††† Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth to life, and few there are that find it.

40-7:15†††† Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.

40-7:16†††† Ye shall know them by their fruits: Do men gather grapes from thorns, or figs from thistles:

40-7:17†††† Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit.

40-7:18†††† A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.

40-7:19†††† Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.

40-7:20†††† Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them,

40-7:21†††† Not every one that saith to me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father who is in heaven.

40-7:22†††† Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out demons? and in thy name done many wonderful works?

40-7:23†††† And then will I profess to them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.

40-7:24†††† Therefore whoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him to a wise man, who built his house upon a rock:

40-7:25†††† And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock.

40-7:26†††† And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened to a foolish man, who built his house upon the sand:

40-7:27†††† And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell, and great was the fall of it.

40-7:28†††† And it came to pass when Jesus had ended these sayings, the people were astonished at his doctrine.

40-7:29†††† For he taught them as one having authority, and not as the scribes.
