THE HOLY BIBLE Authorized King James

Matthew (Author Matthew)

18:1At the same time came the disciples unto Jesus, saying, Who is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven?

18:2And Jesus called a little child unto him, and set him in the midst of them,

18:3And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven.

18:4Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven.

18:5And whoso shall receive one such little child in my name receiveth me.

18:6But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea.

18:7Woe unto the world because of offences! for it must needs be that offences come; but woe to that man by whom the offence cometh!

18:8Wherefore if thy hand or thy foot offend thee, cut them off, and cast them from thee: it is better for thee to enter into life halt or maimed, rather than having two hands or two feet to be cast into everlasting fire.

18:9And if thine eye offend thee, pluck it out, and cast it from thee: it is better for thee to enter into life with one eye, rather than having two eyes to be cast into hell fire.

18:10Take heed that ye despise not one of these little ones; for I say unto you, That in heaven their angels do always behold the face of my Father which is in heaven.

18:11For the Son of man is come to save that which was lost.

18:12How think ye? if a man have an hundred sheep, and one of them be gone astray, doth he not leave the ninety and nine, and goeth into the mountains, and seeketh that which is gone astray?

18:13And if so be that he find it, verily I say unto you, he rejoiceth more of that sheep, than of the ninety and nine which went not astray.

18:14Even so it is not the will of your Father which is in heaven, that one of these little ones should perish.

18:15Moreover if thy brother shall trespass against thee, go and tell him his fault between thee and him alone: if he shall hear thee, thou hast gained thy brother.

18:16But if he will not hear thee, then take with thee one or two more, that in the mouth of two or three witnesses every word may be established.

18:17And if he shall neglect to hear them, tell it unto the church: but if he neglect to hear the church, let him be unto thee as an heathen man and a publican.

18:18Verily I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever ye shall loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.

18:19Again I say unto you, That if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven.

18:20For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.

18:21Then came Peter to him, and said, Lord, how oft shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? till seven times?

18:22Jesus saith unto him, I say not unto thee, Until seven times: but, Until seventy times seven.

18:23Therefore is the kingdom of heaven likened unto a certain king, which would take account of his servants.

18:24And when he had begun to reckon, one was brought unto him, which owed him ten thousand talents.

18:25But forasmuch as he had not to pay, his lord commanded him to be sold, and his wife, and children, and all that he had, and payment to be made.

18:26The servant therefore fell down, and worshipped him, saying, Lord, have patience with me, and I will pay thee all.

18:27Then the lord of that servant was moved with compassion, and loosed him, and forgave him the debt.

18:28But the same servant went out, and found one of his fellowservants, which owed him an hundred pence: and he laid hands on him, and took him by the throat, saying, Pay me that thou owest.

18:29And his fellowservant fell down at his feet, and besought him, saying, Have patience with me, and I will pay thee all.

18:30And he would not: but went and cast him into prison, till he should pay the debt.

18:31So when his fellowservants saw what was done, they were very sorry, and came and told unto their lord all that was done.

18:32Then his lord, after that he had called him, said unto him, O thou wicked servant, I forgave thee all that debt, because thou desiredst me:

18:33Shouldest not thou also have had compassion on thy fellowservant, even as I had pity on thee?

18:34And his lord was wroth, and delivered him to the tormentors, till he should pay all that was due unto him.

18:35So likewise shall my heavenly Father do also unto you, if ye from your hearts forgive not every one his brother their trespasses.

Mark (Author John Mark)

9:33And he came to Capernaum: and being in the house he asked them, What was it that ye disputed among yourselves by the way?

9:34But they held their peace: for by the way they had disputed among themselves, who should be the greatest.

9:35And he sat down, and called the twelve, and saith unto them, If any man desire to be first, the same shall be last of all, and servant of all.

9:36And he took a child, and set him in the midst of them: and when he had taken him in his arms, he said unto them,

9:37Whosoever shall receive one of such children in my name, receiveth me: and whosoever shall receive me, receiveth not me, but him that sent me.

9:38And John answered him, saying, Master, we saw one casting out devils in thy name, and he followeth not us: and we forbad him, because he followeth not us.

9:39But Jesus said, Forbid him not: for there is no man which shall do a miracle in my name, that can lightly speak evil of me.

9:40For he that is not against us is on our part.

9:41For whosoever shall give you a cup of water to drink in my name, because ye belong to Christ, verily I say unto you, he shall not lose his reward.

9:42And whosoever shall offend one of these little ones that believe in me, it is better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he were cast into the sea.

9:43And if thy hand offend thee, cut it off: it is better for thee to enter into life maimed, than having two hands to go into hell, into the fire that never shall be quenched:

9:44Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.

9:45And if thy foot offend thee, cut it off: it is better for thee to enter halt into life, than having two feet to be cast into hell, into the fire that never shall be quenched:

9:46Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.

9:47And if thine eye offend thee, pluck it out: it is better for thee to enter into the kingdom of God with one eye, than having two eyes to be cast into hell fire:

9:48Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.

9:49For every one shall be salted with fire, and every sacrifice shall be salted with salt.

9:50Salt is good: but if the salt have lost his saltness, wherewith will ye season it? Have salt in yourselves, and have peace one with another.

Luke (Author Luke)

9:46Then there arose a reasoning among them, which of them should be greatest.

9:47And Jesus, perceiving the thought of their heart, took a child, and set him by him,

9:48And said unto them, Whosoever shall receive this child in my name receiveth me: and whosoever shall receive me receiveth him that sent me: for he that is least among you all, the same shall be great.

9:49And John answered and said, Master, we saw one casting out devils in thy name; and we forbad him, because he followeth not with us.

9:50And Jesus said unto him, Forbid him not: for he that is not against us is for us.
