13 gAnd they send unto him certain of the Pharisees and of the Herodians, to ggcatch him in his words. 14 And when they were come, they say unto him, Master, we know that thou art true, and carest for no man: for thou regardest not the person of men, but teachest the way of God hin truth: Is it lawful to give tribute to Caesar, or not? 15 Shall we give, or shall we not give? But he, knowing their hypocrisy, said unto them, Why itempt ye me? bring me a ||penny, that I may see it. 16 And they brought it. And he saith unto them, Whose is this image and jsuperscription? And they said unto him, Caesar’s. 17 And Jesus answering said unto them, Render to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s, and to God the things that are God’s. And they marvelled at him.

18 Then come unto him the Sadducees, which say there is no resurrection; and they asked him, saying, 19 Master, Moses wrote unto us, kIf a man’s brother die, and leave his wife behind him, and leave no children, that his brother should take his wife, and raise up seed unto his brother. 20 Now there were seven brethren: and the first took a wife, and dying left no seed. 21 And the second took her, and died, neither left he any seed: and the third likewise. 22 And the seven had her, and left no seed: last of all the woman died also. 23 In the resurrection therefore, when they shall rise, whose wife shall she be of them? for the seven had her to wife. 24 And Jesus answering said unto them, Do ye not therefore err, because ye know not the scriptures, neither the power of God? 25 For when they shall rise from the dead, they neither marry, nor are given in marriage; but are as the angels which are in heaven. 26 And as touching the dead, that they rise: have ye not read in the book of Moses, how lin the bush God spake unto him, saying, mI am the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob? 27 He is not the God of the dead, but the God of the living: ye therefore do greatly err.

28 And one of the scribes came, and having heard them reasoning together, and perceiving that he had answered them mmwell, asked him, Which is the first commandment of all? 29 And Jesus answered him, The first of all the commandments is, nHear, O Israel; The Lord our God is one Lord: 30 And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment. 31 And the second is like, namely this, oThou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. There is none other commandment greater than these. 32 And the scribe said unto him, Well, Master, thou hast said pthe truth: for there is one God; qand there is none other but he: 33 And to love him with all the heart, and with all rthe understanding, and with all the soul, and with all the strength, and to love his neighbour as himself, sis more than all twhole burnt offerings and sacrifices. 34 And when Jesus usaw that he answered discreetly, he said unto him, Thou art not far from the kingdom of God. xAnd no man after that durst ask him any question.

35 yAnd Jesus answered and said, zwhile he taught in the temple, How say the scribes that Christ is the Son of David? 36 For David himself said by the Holy Ghost, aThe Lord said to my Lord, Sit thou on my right hand, till I make thine enemies thy footstool. 37 David therefore himself calleth him Lord; and whence is he then his son? And the common people bheard him gladly.

38 cAnd he said unto them in his doctrine, dBeware of the scribes, which love to go in elong clothing, and love fgsalutations in the marketplaces, 39 And fthe chief seats in the synagogues, and fgthe uppermost rooms at feasts: 40 hWhich devour widows’ houses, and for a pretence make long prayers: these shall receive greater damnation.

41 iAnd Jesus sat over against kthe treasury, and beheld how the people cast ||money linto the treasury: and many that were rich cast in much. 42 And there came a certain poor widow, and she threw in two ||mites, which make ma farthing. 43 And he called unto him his disciples, and saith unto them, Verily I say unto you, That nthis poor widow hath cast more in, than all they which have cast into klthe treasury: 44 For all they did cast in of their abundance; but she of her owant did cast in all that she had, even pall her living.

13 And aas he went out of the temple, one of his disciples saith unto him, Master, see what manner of stones and what buildings are here! And Jesus answering said unto him, Seest thou these great buildings? there shall not be left one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down. And as he sat upon the mount of Olives over against the temple, bPeter and James and John and Andrew asked him privately, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign when all these things shall be fulfilled? And Jesus answering them began to say, cTake heed lest any man deceive you: For many shall come in my name, saying, I am dChrist; and shall deceive many. And when ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars, be ye not troubled: for esuch things must needs be; but the end shall not be yet. For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be earthquakes in divers places, and there shall be famines and troubles: these are the beginnings of ||sorrows.

But ctake heed to yourselves: ffor they shall deliver you up to councils; and in the synagogues ye shall be beaten: and ye shall be brought before rulers and kings for my sake, for a testimony against them. 10 gAnd the gospel must first be published among all nations. 11 But when they shall lead you, and deliver you up, htake no thought beforehand what ye shall speak, neither do ye premeditate: but whatsoever shall be given you in that hour, that speak ye: for it is not ye that speak, but the Holy Ghost. 12 Now the brother shall betray the brother to death, and the father the son; and children shall rise up against their parents, and shall cause them to be put to death. 13 And ye shall be hated of all men for my name’s sake: but he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.

14 But when ye shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing where it ought not, (let him that readeth understand,) then let them that be in Judaea flee to the mountains: 15 And let him that is on the housetop not go down into the house, neither enter therein, to take any thing out of his house: 16 And let him that is in the field not turn back again for to take up his garment. 17 But woe to them that are with child, and to them that give suck in those days! 18 And pray ye that your flight be not in the winter. 19 For in those days shall be affliction, such as was not from the beginning of the creation which God created unto this time, neither shall be. 20 And except that the Lord had shortened those days, no flesh should be saved: but for the elect’s sake, whom he hath chosen, he hath shortened the days. 21 And then if any man shall say to you, Lo, here is Christ; or, lo, he is there; believe him not: 22 For false Christs and false prophets shall rise, and shall shew isigns and wonders, to seduce, if it were possible, even the elect. 23 But ctake ye heed: behold, I have foretold you all things.

24 But in those days, after that tribulation, the sun shall be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, 25 And the stars of heaven shall fall, and the powers that are in heaven shall be shaken. 26 And then shall they see the Son of man coming in the clouds with great power and glory. 27 And then shall he send his angels, and shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from the uttermost part of the earth to the uttermost part of heaven. 28 Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When her branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is near: 29 So ye in like manner, when ye shall see these things come to pass, know that jit is nigh, even at the doors. 30 Verily I say unto you, that this generation shall not pass, till all these things be done. 31 Heaven and earth shall pass away: but my words shall not pass away.

32 But of that day and that hour knoweth jjno man, no, not the angels which are in heaven, kneither the Son, but the Father. 33 cTake ye heed, lwatch and pray: for ye know not when the time is. 34 For the Son of man is mas a man taking a far journey, who left his house, and gave authority to his servants, and to every man his work, and commanded the porter to nwatch. 35 nWatch ye therefore: for ye know not when the master of the house cometh, oat even, or at midnight, or at the pcockcrowing, or oin the morning: 36 Lest coming suddenly he find you sleeping. 37 And what I say unto you I say unto all, nWatch.

14 After atwo days was the feast of the passover, and of unleavened bread: and the chief priests and the scribes sought how they might take him by craft, and put him to death. But they said, Not on the feast day, lest there be an uproar of the people.

bAnd being in Bethany in the house of Simon the leper, as he sat at meat, there came a woman having an alabaster box of ointment of ||spikenard very precious; and she brake the box, and poured it on his head. And there were some that had indignation within themselves, and said, Why was this waste of the ointment made? For it might have been sold for more than three hundred ||pence, and have been given to the poor. And they murmured against her. And Jesus said, Let her alone; why trouble ye her? she hath wrought a good work on me. For ye have the poor with you always, and whensoever ye will ye may do them good: but me ye have not always. She hath done what she could: she is come aforehand to anoint my body to the cburying. Verily I say unto you, Wheresoever this gospel shall be preached throughout the whole world, this also that she hath done shall be spoken of for a memorial of her.

10 dAnd Judas Iscariot, one of the twelve, went unto the chief priests, to betray him unto them. 11 And when
