THE HOLY BIBLE Authorized King James

Matthew (Author Matthew)

8:1When he was come down from the mountain, great multitudes followed him.

8:2And, behold, there came a leper and worshipped him, saying, Lord, if thou wilt, thou canst make me clean.

8:3And Jesus put forth his hand, and touched him, saying, I will; be thou clean. And immediately his leprosy was cleansed.

8:4And Jesus saith unto him, See thou tell no man; but go thy way, shew thyself to the priest, and offer the gift that Moses commanded, for a testimony unto them.

8:5And when Jesus was entered into Capernaum, there came unto him a centurion, beseeching him,

8:6And saying, Lord, my servant lieth at home sick of the palsy, grievously tormented.

8:7And Jesus saith unto him, I will come and heal him.

8:8The centurion answered and said, Lord, I am not worthy that thou shouldest come under my roof: but speak the word only, and my servant shall be healed.

8:9For I am a man under authority, having soldiers under me: and I say to this man, Go, and he goeth; and to another, Come, and he cometh; and to my servant, Do this, and he doeth it.

8:10When Jesus heard it, he marvelled, and said to them that followed, Verily I say unto you, I have not found so great faith, no, not in Israel.

8:11And I say unto you, That many shall come from the east and west, and shall sit down with Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, in the kingdom of heaven.

8:12But the children of the kingdom shall be cast out into outer darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

8:13And Jesus said unto the centurion, Go thy way; and as thou hast believed, so be it done unto thee. And his servant was healed in the selfsame hour.

8:14And when Jesus was come into Peter's house, he saw his wife's mother laid, and sick of a fever.

8:15And he touched her hand, and the fever left her: and she arose, and ministered unto them.

8:16When the even was come, they brought unto him many that were possessed with devils: and he cast out the spirits with his word, and healed all that were sick:

8:17That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Esaias the prophet, saying, Himself took our infirmities, and bare our sicknesses.

8:18Now when Jesus saw great multitudes about him, he gave commandment to depart unto the other side.

8:19And a certain scribe came, and said unto him, Master, I will follow thee whithersoever thou goest.

8:20And Jesus saith unto him, The foxes have holes, and the birds of the air have nests; but the Son of man hath not where to lay his head.

8:21And another of his disciples said unto him, Lord, suffer me first to go and bury my father.

8:22But Jesus said unto him, Follow me; and let the dead bury their dead.

8:23And when he was entered into a ship, his disciples followed him.

8:24And, behold, there arose a great tempest in the sea, insomuch that the ship was covered with the waves: but he was asleep.

8:25And his disciples came to him, and awoke him, saying, Lord, save us: we perish.

8:26And 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.

8:27But the men marvelled, saying, What manner of man is this, that even the winds and the sea obey him!

8:28And when he was come to the other side into the country of the Gergesenes, there met him two possessed with devils, coming out of the tombs, exceeding fierce, so that no man might pass by that way.

8:29And, behold, they cried out, saying, What have we to do with thee, Jesus, thou Son of God? art thou come hither to torment us before the time?

8:30And there was a good way off from them an herd of many swine feeding.

8:31So the devils besought him, saying, If thou cast us out, suffer us to go away into the herd of swine.

8:32And he said unto them, Go. And when they were come out, they went into the herd of swine: and, behold, the whole herd of swine ran violently down a steep place into the sea, and perished in the waters.

8:33And they that kept them fled, and went their ways into the city, and told every thing, and what was befallen to the possessed of the devils.

8:34And, behold, the whole city came out to meet Jesus: and when they saw him, they besought him that he would depart out of their coasts.

9:1And he entered into a ship, and passed over, and came into his own city.

9:2And, behold, they brought to him a man sick of the palsy, lying on a bed: and Jesus seeing their faith said unto the sick of the palsy; Son, be of good cheer; thy sins be forgiven thee.

9:3And, behold, certain of the scribes said within themselves, This man blasphemeth.

9:4And Jesus knowing their thoughts said, Wherefore think ye evil in your hearts?

9:5For whether is easier, to say, Thy sins be forgiven thee; or to say, Arise, and walk?

9:6But that ye may know that the Son of man hath power on earth to forgive sins, (then saith he to the sick of the palsy,) Arise, take up thy bed, and go unto thine house.

9:7And he arose, and departed to his house.

9:8But when the multitudes saw it, they marvelled, and glorified God, which had given such power unto men.

9:9And as Jesus passed forth from thence, he saw a man, named Matthew, sitting at the receipt of custom: and he saith unto him, Follow me. And he arose, and followed him.

9:10And it came to pass, as Jesus sat at meat in the house, behold, many publicans and sinners came and sat down with him and his disciples.

9:11And when the Pharisees saw it, they said unto his disciples, Why eateth your Master with publicans and sinners?

9:12But when Jesus heard that, he said unto them, They that be whole need not a physician, but they that are sick.

9:13But go ye and learn what that meaneth, I will have mercy, and not sacrifice: for I am not come to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.

9:14Then came to him the disciples of John, saying, Why do we and the Pharisees fast oft, but thy disciples fast not?

9:15And Jesus said unto them, Can the children of the bridechamber mourn, as long as the bridegroom is with them? but the days will come, when the bridegroom shall be taken from them, and then shall they fast.

9:16No man putteth a piece of new cloth unto an old garment, for that which is put in to fill it up taketh from the garment, and the rent is made worse.

9:17Neither do men put new wine into old bottles: else the bottles break, and the wine runneth out, and the bottles perish: but they put new wine into new bottles, and both are preserved.

9:18While he spake these things unto them, behold, there came a certain ruler, and worshipped him, saying, My daughter is even now dead: but come and lay thy hand upon her, and she shall live.

9:19And Jesus arose, and followed him, and so did his disciples.

9:20And, behold, a woman, which was diseased with an issue of blood twelve years, came behind him, and touched the hem of his garment:

9:21For she said within herself, If I may but touch his garment, I shall be whole.

9:22But Jesus turned him about, and when he saw her, he said, Daughter, be of good comfort; thy faith hath made thee whole. And the woman was made whole from that hour.

9:23And when Jesus came into the ruler's house, and saw the minstrels and the people making a noise,

9:24He said unto them, Give place: for the maid is not dead, but sleepeth. And they laughed him to scorn.

9:25But when the people were put forth, he went in, and took her by the hand, and the maid arose.

9:26And the fame hereof went abroad into all that land.

9:27And when Jesus departed thence, two blind men followed him, crying, and saying, Thou Son of David, have mercy on us.

9:28And when he was come into the house, the blind men came to him: and Jesus saith unto them, Believe ye that I am able to do this? They said unto him, Yea, Lord.

9:29Then touched he their eyes, saying, According to your faith be it unto you.

9:30And their eyes were opened; and Jesus straitly charged them, saying, See that no man know it.

9:31But they, when they were departed, spread abroad his fame in all that country.

9:32As they went out, behold, they brought to him a dumb man possessed with a devil.

9:33And when the devil was cast out, the dumb spake: and the multitudes marvelled, saying, It was never so seen in Israel.

9:34But the Pharisees said, He casteth out devils through the prince of the devils.

9:35And Jesus went about all the cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing every sickness and every disease among the people.

9:36But when he saw the multitudes, he was moved with compassion on them, because they fainted, and were scattered abroad, as sheep having no shepherd.

9:37Then saith he unto his disciples, The harvest truly is plenteous, but the labourers are few;

9:38Pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he will send forth labourers into his harvest.

10:1And when he had called unto him his twelve disciples, he gave them power against unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to heal all manner of sickness and all manner of disease.

10:2Now the names of the twelve apostles are these; The first, Simon, who is called Peter, and Andrew his brother; James the son of Zebedee, and John his brother;

10:3Philip, and Bartholomew; Thomas, and Matthew the publican; James the son of Alphaeus, and Lebbaeus, whose surname was Thaddaeus;

10:4Simon the Canaanite, and Judas Iscariot, who also betrayed him.

10:5These twelve Jesus sent forth, and commanded them, saying, Go not into the way of the Gentiles, and into any city of the Samaritans enter ye not:

10:6But go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel.

10:7And as ye go, preach, saying, The kingdom of heaven is at hand.

10:8Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils: freely ye have received, freely give.

10:9Provide neither gold, nor silver, nor brass in your purses,

10:10Nor scrip for your journey, neither two coats, neither shoes, nor yet staves: for the workman is worthy of his meat.

10:11And into whatsoever city or town ye shall enter, enquire who in it is worthy; and there abide till ye go thence.

10:12And when ye come into an house, salute it.

10:13And if the house be worthy, let your peace come upon it: but if it be not worthy, let your peace return to you.

10:14And whosoever shall not receive you, nor hear your words, when ye depart out of that house or city, shake off the dust of your feet.

10:15Verily I say unto you, It shall be more tolerable for the land of Sodom and Gomorrha in the day of judgment, than for that city.

10:16Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves: be ye therefore wise as serpents, and harmless as doves.

10:17But beware of men: for they will deliver you up to the councils, and they will scourge you in their synagogues;

10:18And ye shall be brought before governors and kings for my sake, for a testimony against them and the Gentiles.

10:19But when they deliver you up, take no thought how or what ye shall speak: for it shall be given you in that same hour what ye shall speak.

10:20For it is not ye that speak, but the Spirit of your Father which speaketh in you.

10:21And the brother shall deliver up the brother to death, and the father the child: and the children shall rise up against their parents, and cause them to be put to death.

10:22And ye shall be hated of all men for my name's sake: but he that endureth to the end shall be saved.

10:23But when they persecute you in this city, flee ye into another: for verily I say unto you, Ye shall not have gone over the cities of Israel, till the Son of man be come.

10:24The disciple is not above his master, nor the servant above his lord.

10:25It is enough for the disciple that he be as his master, and the servant as his lord. If they have called the master of the house Beelzebub, how much more shall they call them of his household?

10:26Fear them not therefore: for there is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed; and hid, that shall not be known.

10:27What I tell you in darkness, that speak ye in light: and what ye hear in the ear, that preach ye upon the housetops.

10:28And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.

10:29Are not two sparrows sold for a farthing? and one of them shall not fall on the ground without your Father.

10:30But the very hairs of your head are all numbered.

10:31Fear ye not therefore, ye are of more value than many sparrows.

10:32Whosoever therefore shall confess me before men, him will I confess also before my Father which is in heaven.

10:33But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father which is in heaven.

10:34Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword.

10:35For I am come to set a man at variance against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter in law against her mother in law.

10:36And a man's foes shall be they of his own household.

10:37He that loveth father or mother more than me is not worthy of me: and he that loveth son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me.

10:38And he that taketh not his cross, and followeth after me, is not worthy of me.

10:39He that findeth his life shall lose it: and he that loseth his life for my sake shall find it.

10:40He that receiveth you receiveth me, and he that receiveth me receiveth him that sent me.

10:41He that receiveth a prophet in the name of a prophet shall receive a prophet's reward; and he that receiveth a righteous man in the name of a righteous man shall receive a righteous man's reward.

10:42And whosoever shall give to drink unto one of these little ones a cup of cold water only in the name of a disciple, verily I say unto you, he shall in no wise lose his reward.

11:1And it came to pass, when Jesus had made an end of commanding his twelve disciples, he departed thence to teach and to preach in their cities.

11:2Now when John had heard in the prison the works of Christ, he sent two of his disciples,

11:3And said unto him, Art thou he that should come, or do we look for another?

11:4Jesus answered and said unto them, Go and shew John again those things which ye do hear and see:

11:5The blind receive their sight, and the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed, and the deaf hear, the dead are raised up, and the poor have the gospel preached to them.

11:6And blessed is he, whosoever shall not be offended in me.

11:7And as they departed, Jesus began to say unto the multitudes concerning John, What went ye out into the wilderness to see? A reed shaken with the wind?

11:8But what went ye out for to see? A man clothed in soft raiment? behold, they that wear soft clothing are in kings' houses.

11:9But what went ye out for to see? A prophet? yea, I say unto you, and more than a prophet.

11:10For this is he, of whom it is written, Behold, I send my messenger before thy face, which shall prepare thy way before thee.

11:11Verily I say unto you, Among them that are born of women there hath not risen a greater than John the Baptist: notwithstanding he that is least in the kingdom of heaven is greater than he.

11:12And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffereth violence, and the violent take it by force.

11:13For all the prophets and the law prophesied until John.

11:14And if ye will receive it, this is Elias, which was for to come.

11:15He that hath ears to hear, let him hear.

11:16But whereunto shall I liken this generation? It is like unto children sitting in the markets, and calling unto their fellows,

11:17And saying, We have piped unto you, and ye have not danced; we have mourned unto you, and ye have not lamented.

11:18For John came neither eating nor drinking, and they say, He hath a devil.

11:19The Son of man came eating and drinking, and they say, Behold a man gluttonous, and a winebibber, a friend of publicans and sinners. But wisdom is justified of her children.

11:20Then began he to upbraid the cities wherein most of his mighty works were done, because they repented not:

11:21Woe unto thee, Chorazin! woe unto thee, Bethsaida! for if the mighty works, which were done in you, had been done in Tyre and Sidon, they would have repented long ago in sackcloth and ashes.

11:22But I say unto you, It shall be more tolerable for Tyre and Sidon at the day of judgment, than for you.

11:23And thou, Capernaum, which art exalted unto heaven, shalt be brought down to hell: for if the mighty works, which have been done in thee, had been done in Sodom, it would have remained until this day.

11:24But I say unto you, That it shall be more tolerable for the land of Sodom in the day of judgment, than for thee.

11:25At that time Jesus answered and said, I thank thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them unto babes.

11:26Even so, Father: for so it seemed good in thy sight.

11:27All things are delivered unto me of my Father: and no man knoweth the Son, but the Father; neither knoweth any man the Father, save the Son, and he to whomsoever the Son will reveal him.

11:28Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.

11:29Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.

11:30For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.
