14 sFor tthe kingdom of heaven is tas a man utravelling into a far country, who called his yown servants, and delivered unto them his goods. 15 And unto one he gave five ||talents, to another two, and to another one; xto every man according to his yseveral ability; and straightway utook his journey. 16 Then he that had received the five talents went and ztraded with the same, and made them other five talents. 17 And likewise he that had received two, he also gained other two. 18 But he that had received one went and digged in the earth, and hid his lord’s money. 19 After a long time the lord of those servants cometh, and areckoneth with them. 20 And so he that had received five talents came and brought other five talents, saying, Lord, thou deliveredst unto me five talents: behold, I have gained beside them five talents more. 21 His lord said unto him, Well done, thou good and faithful servant: thou hast been aafaithful over a few things, bI will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into cthe joy of thy lord. 22 He also that had received two talents came and said, Lord, thou deliveredst unto me two talents: behold, I have gained two other talents beside them. 23 His lord said unto him, dWell done, good and faithful servant; thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord. 24 Then he which had received the one talent came and said, Lord, eI knew thee that thou art an fhard man, reaping where thou hast not sown, and gathering where thou hast not strawed: 25 And I was afraid, and went and hid thy talent in the earth: lo, there thou hast gthat is thine. 26 His lord answered and said unto him, Thou wicked and hslothful servant, thou knewest that I reap where I sowed not, and gather where I have not strawed: 27 Thou oughtest therefore to have put my money to the iexchangers, and then at my coming I should have received mine own with usury. 28 Take therefore the talent from him, and give it unto him which hath ten talents. 29 kFor unto every one that hath shall be given, and he shall have abundance: but from him that hath not shall be taken away even that which he hath. 30 And lcast ye the munprofitable servant into outer darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

31 nWhen the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the oholy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory: 32 And pbefore him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall qseparate them one from another, as a shepherd qdivideth his rsheep from the goats: 33 And he shall set the sheep son his right hand, but the goats on the left.

34 Then shall tthe King say unto uthem on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, winherit xthe kingdom yprepared for you zfrom the foundation of the world: 35 aFor I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was ba stranger, and ye ctook me in: 36 dNaked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye evisited me: fI was in prison, and ye came unto me. 37 Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink? 38 When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee? 39 Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee? 40 And tthe King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, gInasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.

41 Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, hDepart from me, ye cursed, iinto everlasting fire, ykprepared for lthe devil and lmhis angels: 42 For I nwas an hungred, and ye gave me no meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me no drink: 43 I was a stranger, and ye took me not in: naked, and ye clothed me not: sick, and in prison, and ye visited me not. 44 Then shall they also answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, or athirst, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not ominister unto thee? 45 Then shall he answer them, saying, Verily I say unto you, pInasmuch as ye did it not to one of the least of these, ye did it not to me. 46 And these shall go away into qeverlasting punishment: but the righteous into qrlife eternal.

26 And it came to pass, when Jesus had finished all these sayings, he said unto his disciples, aYe know that after two days is the feast of the passover, and the Son of man is betrayed to be crucified. bThen assembled together the chief priests, and the scribes, and the elders of the people, unto the cpalace of the high priest, who was called dCaiaphas, And consulted that they might take Jesus by subtilty, and kill him. But they said, Not on the feast day, lest there be ddan uproar among the people.

eNow when Jesus was in fBethany, in the house of Simon the leper, There came unto him a woman having gan alabaster box of very precious ointment, and poured it on hhis head, as he sat at meat. But when ihis disciples saw it, they had indignation, saying, To what purpose is this waste? For this ointment might have been sold for jmuch, and given to the poor. 10 When Jesus understood it, he said unto them, Why trouble ye the woman? for she hath wrought a good work upon me. 11 For kye have the poor always with you; but lme ye have not always. 12 For in that she hath poured this ointment on my body, she did it for my mburial. 13 Verily I say unto you, Wheresoever this gospel shall be preached in the whole world, there shall also this, that this woman hath done, be told nfor a memorial of her.

14 oThen one of the twelve, called pJudas Iscariot, went unto the chief priests, 15 And said unto them, qWhat will ye give me, and I will deliver him unto you? And they rcovenanted with him for sthirty pieces of silver. 16 And from that time he sought opportunity to betray him.

17 tNow uthe first day of the feast of unleavened bread the disciples came to Jesus, saying unto him, Where wilt thou that we prepare for thee to eat the passover? 18 And he said, Go into the city wto such a man, and say unto him, xThe Master saith, yMy time is at hand; I will zkeep the passover at thy house with my disciples. 19 And the disciples did as Jesus had aappointed them; and they made ready the passover.

20 Now bwhen the even was come, che sat down with the twelve. 21 And as they did eat, he said, dVerily I say unto you, that one of you shall betray me. 22 And they were exceeding sorrowful, and ddbegan every one of them to say unto him, Lord, is it I? 23 And he answered and said, eHe that dippeth his hand with me in the dish, the same shall betray me. 24 fThe Son of man goeth gas it is written of him: but fhwoe unto that man by whom the Son of man is betrayed! it ihad been good for that man if he had not been born. 25 Then Judas, which betrayed him, kanswered and said, Master, is it I? He said unto him, lThou hast said.

26 llAnd as they were eating, Jesus took bread, and ||blessed it, and brake it, and gave it to the disciples, and said, Take, eat; mthis is my body. 27 And he took the cup, and ngave thanks, and gave it to them, saying, Drink ye all of it; 28 For mthis is my oblood of the pnew testament, which is shed for qmany rfor the remission of sins. 29 But sI say unto you, I will not drink henceforth of this fruit of the vine, until that day when I drink it new with you tin my Father’s kingdom.

30 uAnd when they had sung an ||hymn, wthey went out into xthe mount of Olives. 31 Then saith Jesus unto them, All ye shall be yoffended because of me this night: for it is written, I will zsmite the shepherd, and the sheep of the flock ashall be scattered abroad. 32 But after I am risen again, bI will go before you into Galilee. 33 Peter answered and said unto him, Though all men shall be offended because of thee, cyet will I never be offended. 34 Jesus said unto him, dVerily I say unto thee, That this night, ebefore the cock crow, thou shalt deny me thrice. 35 Peter said unto him, fThough I should die with thee, yet will I not deny thee. Likewise also said all the disciples.

36 gThen cometh Jesus with them unto a place called hGethsemane, and saith unto the disciples, Sit ye here, while I go and pray yonder. 37 And he took with him Peter and ithe two sons of Zebedee, and began to be sorrowful and jvery heavy. 38 Then saith he unto them, kMy soul is exceeding sorrowful, even unto death: tarry ye here, and lwatch with me. 39 And he went a little further, and fell on his face, and mprayed, saying, nO my Father, if it be possible, let this ocup pass from me: nevertheless pnot as I will, qbut as thou wilt. 40 And rhe cometh unto the disciples, and findeth them asleep, and saith unto Peter, sWhat, could ye not lwatch with me one hour? 41 tWatch and pray, that ye enter not into temptation: uthe spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak. 42 He went away again the second time, and prayed, saying, O my Father, pif this ocup may not pass away from me, except I drink it, qthy will be done. 43 And he came and found them asleep again: for their eyes were xheavy. 44 And he left them, and went away again, and prayed the third time, saying the same words. 45 Then cometh he to his disciples, and saith unto them, Sleep on ynow, and take your rest: behold, zthe hour is at hand, and the Son of man is betrayed into the hands of sinners. 46 Rise, let us be going: behold, he is at hand that doth betray me.

47 aAnd while he yet spake, lo, bJudas, one of the twelve, came, and with him a great multitude with swords and cstaves, from the chief priests and elders of the people. 48 Now he that betrayed him dgave them a sign, saying, Whomsoever I shall kiss, that same is he: hold him fast. 49 And forthwith he came to Jesus, and said, Hail, emaster; and fkissed him. 50 And Jesus said unto him, gFriend, wherefore art thou come? Then came they, and laid hands on Jesus, and took him. 51 And, behold, hone of them which were with Jesus stretched out his hand, and drew ihis sword, and struck ja servant of the high …
