Chapter 1:25 Verses
40-1:1 A roll of the birth of Jesus Christ, son of David, 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 Pharez and Zarah of Tamar, and Pharez begat Hezron, and Hezron begat Ram,
40-1:4 and Ram begat Amminadab, and Amminadab begat Nahshon, and Nahshon begat Salmon,
40-1:5 and Salmon begat Boaz of Rahab, and Boaz 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 who had been Uriah's,
40-1:7 and Solomon begat Rehoboam, and Rehoboam begat Abijah, and Abijah begat Asa,
40-1:8 and Asa begat Jehoshaphat, and Jehoshaphat begat Joram, and Joram begat Uzziah,
40-1:9 and Uzziah begat Jotham, and Jotham begat Ahaz, and Ahaz begat Hezekiah,
40-1:10 and Hezekiah begat Manasseh, and Manasseh begat Amon, and Amon begat Josiah,
40-1:11 and Josiah begat Jeconiah and his brethren, at the Babylonian removal.
40-1:12 And after the Babylonian removal, Jeconiah begat Shealtiel, and Shealtiel begat Zerubbabel,
40-1:13 and Zerubbabel begat Abiud, and Abiud begat Eliakim, and Eliakim begat Azor,
40-1:14 and Azor begat Sadok, and Sadok 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 begotten Jesus, who is named Christ.
40-1:17 All the generations, therefore, from Abraham unto David are fourteen generations, and from David unto the Babylonian removal fourteen generations, and from the Babylonian removal unto the Christ, fourteen generations.
40-1:18 And of Jesus Christ, the birth was thus: For his mother Mary having been betrothed to Joseph, before their coming together she was found to have conceived from the Holy Spirit,
40-1:19 and Joseph her husband being righteous, and not willing to make her an example, did wish privately to send her away.
40-1:20 And on his thinking of these things, lo, a messenger of the Lord in a dream appeared to him, saying, `Joseph, son of David, thou mayest not fear to receive Mary thy wife, for that which in her was begotten is of 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 And all this hath come to pass, that it may be fulfilled that was spoken by the Lord through the prophet, saying,
40-1:23 `Lo, the virgin shall conceive, and she shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel,' which is, being interpreted `With us he is God.'
40-1:24 And Joseph, having risen from the sleep, did as the messenger of the Lord directed him, and received his wife,
40-1:25 and did not know her till she brought forth her son--the first-born, and he called his name Jesus.
Chapter 2:23 Verses
40-2:1 And Jesus having been born in Beth-Lehem of Judea, in the days of Herod the king, lo, mages from the east came to Jerusalem,
40-2:2 saying, `Where is he who was born king of the Jews? for we saw his star in the east, and we came to bow to him.'
40-2:3 And Herod the king having heard, was stirred, and all Jerusalem with him,
40-2:4 and having gathered all the chief priests and scribes of the people, he was inquiring from them where the Christ is born.
40-2:5 And they said to him, `In Beth-Lehem of Judea, for thus it hath been written through the prophet,
40-2:6 And thou, Beth-Lehem, the land of Judah, thou art by no means the least among the leaders of Judah, for out of thee shall come one leading, who shall feed My people Israel.'
40-2:7 Then Herod, privately having called the mages, did inquire exactly from them the time of the appearing star,
40-2:8 and having sent them to Beth-Lehem, he said, `Having gone--inquire ye exactly for the child, and whenever ye may have found, bring me back word, that I also having come may bow to him.'
40-2:9 And they, having heard the king, departed, and lo, the star, that they did see in the east, did go before them, till, having come, it stood over where the child was.
40-2:10 And having seen the star, they rejoiced with exceeding great joy,
40-2:11 and having come to the house, they found the child with Mary his mother, and having fallen down they bowed to him, and having opened their treasures, they presented to him gifts, gold, and frankincense, and myrrh,
40-2:12 and having been divinely warned in a dream not to turn back unto Herod, through another way they withdrew to their own region.
40-2:13 And on their having withdrawn, lo, a messenger of the Lord doth appear in a dream to Joseph, saying, `Having risen, take the child and his mother, and flee to Egypt, and be thou there till I may speak to thee, for Herod is about to seek the child to destroy him.'
40-2:14 And he, having risen, took the child and his mother by night, and withdrew to Egypt,
40-2:15 and he was there till the death of Herod, that it might be fulfilled that was spoken by the Lord through the prophet, saying, `Out of Egypt I did call My Son.'
40-2:16 Then Herod, having seen that he was deceived by the mages, was very wroth, and having sent forth, he slew all the male children in Beth-Lehem, and in all its borders, from two years and under, according to the time that he inquired exactly from the mages.
40-2:17 Then was fulfilled that which was spoken by Jeremiah the prophet, saying,
40-2:18 `A voice in Ramah was heard--lamentation and weeping and much mourning--Rachel weeping for her children, and she would not be comforted because they are not.'
40-2:19 And Herod having died, lo, a messenger of the Lord in a dream doth appear to Joseph in Egypt,
40-2:20 saying, `Having risen, take the child and his mother, and be going to the land of Israel, for they have died--those seeking the life of the child.'
40-2:21 And he, having risen, took the child and his mother, and came to the land of Israel,
40-2:22 and having heard that Archelaus doth reign over Judea instead of Herod his father, he was afraid to go thither, and having been divinely warned in a dream, he withdrew to the parts of Galilee,
40-2:23 and coming, he dwelt in a city named Nazareth, that it might be fulfilled that was spoken through the prophets, that `A Nazarene he shall be called.'
Chapter 3:17 Verses
40-3:1 And in those days cometh John the Baptist, proclaiming in the wilderness of Judea,
40-3:2 and saying, `Reform, for come nigh hath the reign of the heavens,'
40-3:3 for this is he who was spoken of by Isaiah the prophet, saying, `A voice of one crying in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the Lord, straight make ye His paths.'
40-3:4 And this John had his clothing of camel's hair, and a girdle of skin round his loins, and his nourishment was locusts and honey of the field.
40-3:5 Then were going forth unto him Jerusalem, and all Judea, and all the region round about the Jordan,
40-3:6 and they were baptized in the Jordan by him, confessing their sins.
40-3:7 And having seen many of the Pharisees and Sadducees coming about his baptism, he said to them, `Brood of vipers! who did shew you to flee from the coming wrath?
40-3:8 bear, therefore, fruits worthy of the reformation,
40-3:9 and do not think to say in yourselves, A father we have--Abraham, for I say to you, that God is able out of these stones to raise children to Abraham,
40-3:10 and now also, the axe unto the root of the trees is laid, every tree therefore not bearing good fruit is hewn down, and to fire is cast.
40-3:11 `I indeed do baptize you with water to reformation, but he who after me is coming is mightier than I, of whom I am not worthy to bear the sandals, 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 will gather his wheat to the storehouse, but the chaff he will burn with fire unquenchable.'
40-3:13 Then cometh Jesus from Galilee upon the Jordan, unto John to be baptized by him,
40-3:14 but John was forbidding him, saying, `I have need by thee to be baptized--and thou dost come unto me!'
40-3:15 But Jesus answering said to him, `Suffer now, for thus it is becoming to us to fulfil all righteousness,' then he doth suffer him.
40-3:16 And having been baptized, Jesus went up immediately from the water, and lo, opened to him were the heavens, and he saw the Spirit of God descending as a dove, and coming upon him,
40-3:17 and lo, a voice out of the heavens, saying, `This is My Son--the Beloved, in whom I did delight.'
Chapter 4:25 Verses
40-4:1 Then Jesus was led up to the wilderness by the Spirit, to be tempted by the Devil,
40-4:2 and having fasted forty days and forty nights, afterwards he did hunger.
40-4:3 And the Tempter having come to him said, `If Son thou art of God--speak that these stones may become loaves.'
40-4:4 But he answering said, `It hath been written, Not upon bread alone doth man live, but upon every word coming forth from the mouth of God.'
40-4:5 Then doth the Devil take him to the holy city, and doth set him on the pinnacle of the temple,
40-4:6 and saith to him, `If Son thou art of God--cast thyself down, for it hath been written, that, His messengers He shall charge concerning thee, and on hands they shall bear thee up, that thou mayest not dash on a stone thy foot.'
40-4:7 Jesus said to him again, `It hath been written, Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God.'
40-4:8 Again doth the Devil take him to a very high mount, and doth shew to him all the kingdoms of the world and the glory of them,
40-4:9 and saith to him, `All these to thee I will give, if falling down thou mayest bow to me.'
40-4:10 Then saith Jesus to him, `Go--Adversary, for it hath been written, The Lord thy God thou shalt bow to, and Him only thou shalt serve.'
40-4:11 Then doth the Devil leave him, and lo, messengers came and were ministering to him.
40-4:12 And Jesus having heard that John was delivered up, did withdraw to Galilee,
40-4:13 and having left Nazareth, having come, he dwelt at Capernaum that is by the sea, in the borders of Zebulun and Naphtalim,
40-4:14 that it might be fulfilled that was spoken through Isaiah the prophet, saying,
40-4:15 `Land of Zebulun and land of Naphtali, way of the sea, beyond the Jordan, Galilee of the nations! --
40-4:16 the people that is sitting in darkness saw a great light, and to those sitting in a region and shadow of death--light arose to them.'
40-4:17 From that time began Jesus to proclaim and to say, `Reform ye, for come nigh hath the reign of the heavens.'
40-4:18 And Jesus, walking by the sea of Galilee, saw two brothers, Simon named Peter and Andrew his brother, casting a drag into the sea--for they were fishers--
40-4:19 and he saith to them, `Come ye after me, and I will make you fishers of men,'
40-4:20 and they, immediately, having left the nets, did follow him.
40-4:21 And having advanced thence, he saw other two brothers, James of Zebedee, and John his brother, in the boat with Zebedee their father, refitting their nets, and he called them,
40-4:22 and they, immediately, having left the boat and their father, did follow him.
40-4:23 And Jesus was going about all Galilee teaching in their synagogues, and proclaiming the good news of the reign, and healing every disease, and every malady among the people,
40-4:24 and his fame went forth to all Syria, and they brought to him all having ailments, pressed with manifold sicknesses and pains, and demoniacs, and lunatics, and paralytics, and he healed them.
40-4:25 And there followed him many multitudes from Galilee, and Decapolis, and Jerusalem, and Judea, and beyond the Jordan.
Chapter 5:48 Verses
40-5:1 And having seen the multitudes, he went up to the mount, and he having sat down, his disciples came to him,
40-5:2 and having opened his mouth, he was teaching them, saying:
40-5:3 `Happy the poor in spirit--because theirs is the reign of the heavens.
40-5:4 `Happy the mourning--because they shall be comforted.
40-5:5 `Happy the meek--because they shall inherit the land.

40-5:9 `Happy the peacemakers--because they shall be called Sons of God.
40-5:10 `Happy those persecuted for righteousness' sake--because theirs is the reign of the heavens.
40-5:11 `Happy are ye whenever they may reproach you, and may persecute, and may say any evil thing against you falsely for my sake--
40-5:12 rejoice ye and be glad, because your reward is great in the heavens, for thus did they persecute the prophets who were before you.
40-5:13 `Ye are the salt of the land, but if the salt may lose savour, in what shall it be salted? for nothing is it good henceforth, except to be cast without, and to be trodden down by men.
40-5:14 `Ye are the light of the world, a city set upon a mount is not able to be hid;
40-5:15 nor do they light a lamp, and put it under the measure, but on the lamp-stand, and it shineth to all those in the house;
40-5:16 so let your light shine before men, that they may see your good works, and may glorify your Father who is in the heavens.
40-5:17 `Do not suppose that I came to throw down the law or the prophets--I did not come to throw down, but to fulfil;
40-5:18 for, verily I say to you, till that the heaven and the earth may pass away, one iota or one tittle may not pass away from the law, till that all may come to pass.
40-5:19 `Whoever therefore may loose one of these commands--the least--and may teach men so, least he shall be called in the reign of the heavens, but whoever may do and may teach them , he shall be called great in the reign of the heavens.
40-5:20 `For I say to you, that if your righteousness may not abound above that of the scribes and Pharisees, ye may not enter to the reign of the heavens.
40-5:21 `Ye heard that it was said to the ancients: Thou shalt not kill, and whoever may kill shall be in danger of the judgment;
40-5:22 but I--I say to you, that every one who is angry at his brother without cause, shall be in danger of the judgment, and whoever may say to his brother, Empty fellow! shall be in danger of the sanhedrim, and whoever may say, Rebel! shall be in danger of the gehenna of the fire.
40-5:23 `If, therefore, thou mayest bring thy gift to the altar, and there mayest remember that thy brother hath anything against thee,
40-5:24 leave there thy gift before the altar, and go--first be reconciled to thy brother, and then having come bring thy gift.
40-5:25 `Be agreeing with thy opponent quickly, while thou art in the way with him, that the opponent may not deliver thee to the judge, and the judge may deliver thee to the officer, and to prison thou mayest be cast,

40-5:27 `Ye heard that it was said to the ancients: Thou shalt not commit adultery;
40-5:28 but I--I say to you, that every one who is looking on a woman to desire her, did already commit adultery with her in his heart.
40-5:29 `But, if thy right eye doth cause thee to stumble, pluck it out and cast from thee, for it is good to thee that one of thy members may perish, and not thy whole body be cast to gehenna.
40-5:30 `And, if thy right hand doth cause thee to stumble, cut it off, and cast from thee, for it is good to thee that one of thy members may perish, and not thy whole body be cast to gehenna.
40-5:31 `And it was said, That whoever may put away his wife, let him give to her a writing of divorce;
40-5:32 but I--I say to you, that whoever may put away his wife, save for the matter of whoredom, doth make her to commit adultery; and whoever may marry her who hath been put away doth commit adultery.
40-5:33 `Again, ye heard that it was said to the ancients: Thou shalt not swear falsely, but thou shalt pay to the Lord thine oaths;
40-5:34 but I--I say to you, not to swear at all; neither by the heaven, because it is the throne of God,
40-5:35 nor by the earth, because it is His footstool, nor by Jerusalem, because it is a city of a great king,
40-5:36 nor by thy head mayest thou swear, because thou art not able one hair to make white or black;
40-5:37 but let your word be, Yes, Yes, No, No, and that which is more than these is of the evil.
40-5:38 `Ye heard that it was said: Eye for eye, and tooth for tooth;
40-5:39 but I--I say to you, not to resist the evil, but whoever shall slap thee on thy right cheek, turn to him also the other;
40-5:40 and whoever is willing to take thee to law, and thy coat to take--suffer to him also the cloak.
40-5:41 `And whoever shall impress thee one mile, go with him two,
40-5:42 to him who is asking of thee be giving, and him who is willing to borrow from thee thou mayest not turn away.
40-5:43 `Ye heard that it was said: Thou shalt love thy neighbour, and shalt hate thine enemy;
40-5:44 but I--I say to you, Love your enemies, bless those cursing you, do good to those hating you, and pray for those accusing you falsely, and persecuting you,
40-5:45 that ye may be sons of your Father in the heavens, because His sun He doth cause to rise on evil and good, and He doth send rain on righteous and unrighteous.
40-5:46 `For, if ye may love those loving you, what reward have ye? do not also the tax-gatherers the same?
40-5:47 and if ye may salute your brethren only, what do ye abundant? do not also the tax-gatherers so?
40-5:48 ye shall therefore be perfect, as your Father who is in the heavens is perfect.
Chapter 6:34 Verses
40-6:1 `Take heed your kindness not to do before men, to be seen by them, and if not--reward ye have not from your Father who is in the heavens;
40-6:2 whenever, therefore, thou mayest do kindness, thou mayest 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 thou, doing kindness, let not thy left hand know what thy right hand doth,
40-6:4 that thy kindness may be in secret, and thy Father who is seeing in secret Himself shall reward thee manifestly.
40-6:5 `And when thou mayest pray, thou shalt not be as the hypocrites, because they love in the synagogues, and in the corners of the broad places--standing--to pray, that they may be seen of men; verily I say to you, that they have their reward.
40-6:6 `But thou, when thou mayest pray, go into thy chamber, and having shut thy door, pray to thy Father who is in secret, and thy Father who is seeing in secret, shall reward thee manifestly.
40-6:7 `And--praying--ye may not use vain repetitions like the nations, for they think that in their much speaking they shall be heard,
40-6:8 be ye not therefore like to them, for your Father doth know those things that ye have need of before your asking him;
40-6:9 thus therefore pray ye: `Our Father who art in the heavens! hallowed be Thy name.
40-6:10 `Thy reign come: Thy will come to pass, as in heaven also on the earth.
40-6:11 `Our appointed bread give us to-day.
40-6:12 `And forgive us our debts, as also we forgive our debtors.
40-6:13 `And mayest Thou not lead us to temptation, but deliver us from the evil, because Thine is the reign, and the power, and the glory--to the ages. Amen.
40-6:14 `For, if ye may forgive men their trespasses He also will forgive you--your Father who is in the heavens;
40-6:15 but if ye may not forgive men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.
40-6:16 `And when ye may fast, be ye not as the hypocrites, of sour countenances, for they disfigure their faces, that they may appear to men fasting; verily I say to you, that they have their reward.
40-6:17 `But thou, fasting, anoint thy head, and wash thy face,
40-6:18 that thou mayest not appear to men fasting, but to thy Father who is in secret, and thy Father, who is seeing in secret, shall reward thee manifestly.
40-6:19 `Treasure not up to yourselves treasures on the earth, where moth and rust disfigure, and where thieves break through and steal,
40-6:20 but treasure up to yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth disfigure, and where thieves do not break through nor steal,
40-6:21 for where your treasure is, there will be also your heart.
40-6:22 `The lamp of the body is the eye, if, therefore, thine eye may be perfect, all thy body shall be enlightened,
40-6:23 but if thine eye may be evil, all thy body shall be dark; if, therefore, the light that is in thee is darkness--the darkness, how great!
40-6:24 `None is able to serve two lords, for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will hold to the one, and despise the other; ye are not able to serve God and Mammon.
40-6:25 `Because of this I say to you, be not anxious for your life, what ye may eat, and what ye may drink, nor for your body, what ye may put on. Is not the life more than the nourishment, and the body than the clothing?
40-6:26 look to the fowls of the heaven, for they do not sow, nor reap, nor gather into storehouses, and your heavenly Father doth nourish them; are not ye much better than they?
40-6:27 `And who of you, being anxious, is able to add to his age one cubit?
40-6:28 and about clothing why are ye anxious? consider well the lilies of the field; how do they grow? they do not labour, nor do they spin;
40-6:29 and I say to you, that not even Solomon in all his glory was arrayed as one of these.
40-6:30 `And if the herb of the field, that to-day is, and to-morrow is cast to the furnace, God doth so clothe--not much more you, O ye of little faith?
40-6:31 therefore ye may not be anxious, saying, What may we eat? or, What may we drink? or, What may we put round?
40-6:32 for all these do the nations seek for, for your heavenly Father doth know that ye have need of all these;
40-6:33 but seek ye first the reign of God and His righteousness, and all these shall be added to you.
40-6:34 Be not therefore anxious for the morrow, for the morrow shall be anxious for its own things; sufficient for the day is the evil of it.
Chapter 7:29 Verses
40-7:1 `Judge not, that ye may not be judged,
40-7:2 for in what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged, and in what measure ye measure, it shall be measured to you.
40-7:3 `And why dost thou behold the mote that is in thy brother's eye, and the beam that is in thine own eye dost not consider?
40-7:4 or, how wilt thou say to thy brother, Suffer I may cast out the mote from thine eye, and lo, the beam is in thine own eye?
40-7:5 Hypocrite, cast out first the beam out of thine own eye, and then thou shalt see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother's eye.
40-7:6 `Ye may not give that which is holy to the dogs, nor cast your pearls before the swine, that they may not trample them among their feet, and having turned--may rend you.
40-7:7 `Ask, and it shall be given to you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened to you;
40-7:8 for every one who is asking doth receive, and he who is seeking doth find, and to him who is knocking it shall be opened.
40-7:9 `Or what man is of you, of whom, if his son may ask a loaf--a stone will he present to him?
40-7:10 and if a fish he may ask--a serpent will he present to him?
40-7:11 if, therefore, ye being evil, have known good gifts to give to your children, how much more shall your Father who is in the heavens give good things to those asking him?
40-7:12 `All things, therefore, whatever ye may will that men may be doing to you, so also do to them, for this is the law and the prophets.
40-7:13 `Go ye in through the strait gate, because wide is the gate, and broad the way that is leading to the destruction, and many are those going in through it;
40-7:14 how strait is the gate, and compressed the way that is leading to the life, and few are those finding it!
40-7:15 `But, take heed of the false prophets, who come unto you in sheep's clothing, and inwardly are ravening wolves.
40-7:16 From their fruits ye shall know them; do men gather from thorns grapes? or from thistles figs?
40-7:17 so every good tree doth yield good fruits, but the bad tree doth yield evil fruits.
40-7:18 A good tree is not able to yield evil fruits, nor a bad tree to yield good fruits.
40-7:19 Every tree not yielding good fruit is cut down and is cast to fire:
40-7:20 therefore from their fruits ye shall know them.
40-7:21 `Not every one who is saying to me Lord, lord, shall come into the reign of the heavens; but he who is doing the will of my Father who is in the heavens.
40-7:22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, lord, have we not in thy name prophesied? and in thy name cast out demons? and in thy name done many mighty things?
40-7:23 and then I will acknowledge to them, that--I never knew you, depart from me ye who are working lawlessness.
40-7:24 `Therefore, every one who doth hear of me these words, and doth do them, I will liken him to a wise man who built his house upon the rock;
40-7:25 and the rain did descend, and the streams came, and the winds blew, and they beat on that house, and it fell not, for it had been founded on the rock.
40-7:26 `And every one who is hearing of me these words, and is not doing them, shall be likened to a foolish man who built his house upon the sand;
40-7:27 and the rain did descend, and the streams came, and the winds blew, and they beat on that house, and it fell, and its fall was great.'
40-7:28 And it came to pass, when Jesus ended these words, the multitudes were astonished at his teaching,
40-7:29 for he was teaching them as having authority, and not as the scribes.
Chapter 8:34 Verses
40-8:1 And when he came down from the mount, great multitudes did follow him,
40-8:2 and lo, a leper having come, was bowing to him, saying, `Sir, if thou art willing, thou art able to cleanse me;'
40-8:3 and having stretched forth the hand, Jesus touched him, saying, `I will, be thou cleansed,' and immediately his leprosy was cleansed.
40-8:4 And Jesus saith to him, `See, thou mayest tell no one, but go, thyself shew to the priest, and bring the gift that Moses commanded for a testimony to them.'
40-8:5 And Jesus having entered into Capernaum, there came to him a centurion calling upon him,
40-8:6 and saying, `Sir, my young man hath been laid in the house a paralytic, fearfully afflicted,'
