22 zThen was brought unto him one apossessed with a devil, blind, and dumb: and he healed him, insomuch that the blind and dumb both spake and saw. 23 And all the people aawere amazed, and said, Is not this bthe son of David? 24 But when the Pharisees heard it, they said, cThis fellow doth not cast out devils, but by Beelzebub the prince of the devils. 25 And Jesus dknew their thoughts, eand said unto them, Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and every city or house divided against itself shall not stand: 26 And if Satan cast out Satan, he is divided against himself; how shall then his kingdom stand? 27 And if I by Beelzebub cast out devils, by whom do fyour children cast them out? therefore they shall be your judges. 28 But if I cast out devils by the Spirit of God, then the kingdom of God gis come unto you. 29 Or else hhow can one enter into a strong man’s house, and spoil his goods, except he first bind the strong man? and ithen he will spoil his house. 30 kHe that is not with me is against me; and he that gathereth not with me scattereth abroad. 31 lWherefore I say unto you, All manner of sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven unto men: but the blasphemy against the mHoly Ghost shall not be forgiven unto men. 32 And whosoever speaketh a word nagainst the Son of man, oit shall be forgiven him: but whosoever speaketh against the Holy Ghost, it shall not be forgiven him, neither in this world, neither in the world to come. 33 pEither make the tree good, and his fruit good; or else make the tree corrupt, and his fruit corrupt: pqfor the tree is known by his fruit. 34 rO generation of vipers, how can ye, being evil, speak good things? sfor out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh. 35 A good man out of the good treasure of the heart bringeth forth good things: and an evil man out of the evil treasure bringeth forth evil things. 36 But I say unto you, That every tidle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment. 37 For uby thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned.

38 Then certain of the scribes and of the Pharisees answered, saying, xMaster, we would see a sign from thee. 39 But he answered and said unto them, yAn evil and zadulterous generation seeketh after a sign; and there shall no sign be given to it, but the sign of the prophet Jonas: 40 For aas Jonas was three days and three nights in the whale’s belly; so shall the Son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth. 41 The men of bNineveh shall rise cin judgment with this generation, and dshall condemn it: because ethey repented at the preaching of Jonas; and, behold, fa greater than Jonas is here. 42 The gqueen of the south shall rise up in the judgment with this generation, and dshall condemn it: for she came from the uttermost parts of the earth to hear the wisdom of Solomon; and, behold, fa greater than Solomon is here.

43 hWhen the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walketh through idry places, seeking rest, and findeth none. 44 Then he saith, I will return into my house from whence I came out; and when he is come, he findeth it empty, swept, and jgarnished. 45 Then goeth he, and taketh with himself seven other spirits more wicked than himself, and they enter in and dwell there: and kthe last state of that man is worse than the first. Even so shall it be also unto this wicked generation.

46 While he yet talked to the people, lbehold, his mother and mhis brethren stood without, desiring to speak with him. 47 Then one said unto him, Behold, thy mother and thy brethren stand without, desiring to speak with thee. 48 But he answered and said unto him that told him, Who is my mother? and who are my brethren? 49 And he stretched forth his hand toward his disciples, and said, Behold my mother and my brethren! 50 For nwhosoever shall do the will of omy Father which is in heaven, the same is my brother, and sister, and mother.

13 The same day went Jesus out of athe house, and bsat by the sea side. cAnd great multitudes were gathered together unto him, so that dhe went into ea ship, and sat; and the whole multitude stood on the shore. And he spake many things unto them in parables, saying, Behold, a sower went forth to sow; And when he sowed, some seeds fell by the way side, and the fowls came and devoured them up: Some fell upon stony places, where they had not much earth: and forthwith they sprung up, because they had no deepness of earth: And when the sun was up, they were scorched; and because they had no root, they withered away. And some fell among fthorns; and the thorns sprung up, and choked them: But other fell into good ground, and gbrought forth fruit, some han hundredfold, some sixtyfold, some thirtyfold. iWho hath ears to hear, let him hear.

10 And the disciples came, and said unto him, Why speakest thou unto them in parables? 11 He answered and said unto them, Because jit is given unto you kto know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it is not given. 12 lFor whosoever hath, to him shall be given, and he shall have more abundance: but whosoever hath not, from him shall be taken away even mthat he hath. 13 Therefore speak I to them in parables: because they seeing see not; and hearing they hear not, neither do they understand. 14 And in them is fulfilled the prophecy of Esaias, which saith, nBy hearing ye shall hear, and shall not understand; and seeing ye shall see, and shall not perceive: 15 For this people’s heart is waxed gross, and their ears oare dull of hearing, and their eyes they have closed; lest at any time they should see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and should understand with their heart, and should oobe converted, and I should heal them. 16 pBut qblessed are your eyes, for they see: and your ears, for they hear. 17 For verily I say unto you, rThat many prophets and righteous men have desired to see those things which ye see, and have not seen them; and to hear those things which ye hear, and have not heard them. 18 sHear ye therefore the parable of the sower. 19 When any one heareth the word tof the kingdom, and understandeth it not, then cometh uthe wicked one, and catcheth away that which was sown in his heart. This is he which received seed by the way side. 20 But he that received the seed into stony places, the same is he that heareth the word, and wanon xwith joy receiveth it; 21 Yet hath he not root in himself, but ydureth for a while: for when tribulation or persecution ariseth because of the word, yyby and by zhe is offended. 22 He also that received seed among the thorns is he that heareth the word; and athe care of this world, and the deceitfulness of briches, choke the word, and he becometh unfruitful. 23 But he that received seed into the good ground is he that heareth the word, and understandeth it; which also beareth fruit, and bringeth forth, some an hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty.

24 Another cparable put he forth unto them, saying, The kingdom of heaven is likened unto a man which sowed good seed in his field: 25 But while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat, and went his way. 26 But when the blade was sprung up, and brought forth fruit, then appeared the tares also. 27 So the servants of the householder came and said unto him, Sir, didst not thou sow good seed in thy field? from whence then hath it tares? 28 He said unto them, An enemy hath done this. The servants said unto him, Wilt thou then that we go and gather them up? 29 But he said, Nay; lest while ye gather up the tares, ye root up also the wheat with them. 30 Let both grow together until the harvest: and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, Gather ye together first the tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them: but dgather the wheat into my barn.

31 Another parable put he forth unto them, saying, eThe kingdom of heaven is like to fa grain of mustard seed, which a man took, and sowed in his field: 32 Which indeed is the least of all seeds: but when it is grown, ffit is the greatest among herbs, and becometh a tree, so that gthe birds of the air come and lodge in the branches thereof.

33 Another parable spake he unto them; hThe kingdom of heaven is like unto leaven, which a woman took, and hid in ithree measures of meal, till the whole was leavened. 34 kAll these things spake Jesus unto the multitude in parables; and without a parable spake he not unto them: 35 That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, saying, lI will open my mouth in parables; mI will utter things which have been kept secret nfrom the foundation of the world.

36 Then Jesus sent the multitude away, and went into othe house: and his disciples came unto him, saying, Declare unto us pthe parable of the tares of the field. 37 He answered and said unto them, He that soweth the good seed is the Son of man; 38 The field is qthe world; the good seed are rthe children of the kingdom; but the tares are sthe children of tthe wicked one; 39 The enemy that sowed them is the devil; uthe harvest is xthe end of the world; and the reapers are the angels. 40 As therefore the tares are gathered and burned in the fire; so shall it be in xthe end of this world. 41 xxThe Son of man shall send forth his angels, and they shall gather out of his kingdom all ||things that offend, and them which do iniquity; 42 And shall ycast them into yya furnace of fire: zthere shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth. 43 Then shall athe righteous shine forth as the sun in bthe kingdom of their Father. cWho hath ears to hear, let him hear.

44 Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto dtreasure hid in a field; the which when a man hath found, he hideth, and for joy thereof goeth and eselleth all that he hath, and fbuyeth that field.

45 Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a merchant man, seeking goodly pearls: 46 Who, when he had found one gpearl of great price, went and esold all that he had, and fbought …
