Chapter 1
1 Since in fact, even many take it in hand to compose a narrative about the matters having been fully carried out among us, 2 down as the ones from a beginning give it over to us, they becoming eyewitnesses and subservients of the word, 3 it seems to be to me also, having fully followed from the top, all things accurately, to write them consecutively to you, most holding Theophilus, 4 that you may be recognizing the security about words which you were instructed. 5 In the days of Herod, king of the Judea, there became a priest, Zacharias in name, he being out of the routine of Abiah, and with him a woman out of the daughters of Aaron, and her name, Elizabeth. 6 They were both just, yet, in front of the Placer, going blameless in all the precepts and just effects of the Master. 7 And there was no offspring to them, down as the Elizabeth was sterile, and both were advanced in their days. 8 Yet it became, in his being priest, in the setting of his routine in front of the Placer, 9 down the custom of the priestly office, he chanced upon it to burn incense, entering into the Master’s temple. 10 And all the multitude of the people was praying outside, in the hour of the incense. 11 Seen by him, yet, was a messenger of Master, having stood out right of the altar of the incense. 12 And perceiving him, Zacharias was disturbed, and fear falls on him. 13 Yet the messenger said toward him, “Do not be fearing, Zacharias, because your petition is hearkened to, and your woman Elizabeth shall be generating a son to you, and you shall be calling his name John. 14 And there shall be joy and exultation to you, and many shall be having joy on his generating, 15 for he shall be great in the Master’s sight. And by no means may he be drinking wine and inoxicant. And he shall be filled full of holy spirit, while still out* of his mother’s belly. 16 And he shall be turning many of the sons of Israel back onto Master their Placer. 17 And he shall be coming before, in his sight, in spirit and power of Elijah, to turn back hearts of fathers onto offspring, and stubborn ones, in a disposition of just ones, to make ready to Master, a people having been constructed.” 18 And Zachariah said toward the messenger, “Down what, shall I be knowing this, for I am a senior, and my woman is advanced in her days.” 19 And answering, the messenger said to him, “I am Gabriel, the one having stood by in the Placer’s sight, and I was commissioned to speak toward you and to bring these things as a good message to you. 20 And be perceiving, you shall be silent and not able to speak, until which day these things are becoming, this being in a stead of which, you do not believe my words, which shall be fulfilled, into their season.” 21 And the people were hoping for the Zacharias, and they marveled in his delaying in the temple. 22 Coming out, yet, he was not able to speak to them, and they recognize that he has seen a sight in the temple. And he remained mute. 23 And it became, as the days of his officiation are fulfilled, he came away, into his house. 24 After these days, yet, Elizabeth his woman got it^ together, and hid it about herself five months, saying 25 that, “Thus has Master done to me in days in which he perceived, to be lifting my reproach from among humans.” 26 In the sixth month, yet, the messenger Gabriel was commissioned from the Placer, into a city of the Galilee, to which is the name Nazareth, 27 toward a virgin having been espoused to a man to whom is the name Joseph, he being out of the house of David. And the name of the virgin is Mary. 28 And entering toward her, he said, “Be having joy, having been graced! The Master is with you!” 29 Yet she was disturbed on the word, and reasoned, “Where may this greeting be from?” 30 And the messenger said to her, “Do not be fearing, Mary, for you found grace with the Placer. 31 And you shall be getting together a pregnancy, and you shall be bringing forth a son, and you shall be calling his name Jesus. 32 This one shall be great, and shall be called a son of Highest. And Master the Placer shall be giving to him the throne of David his father. 33 And he shall be reigning on the house of Jacob, into the durations. And of his kingdom, there shall be no consummation.” 34 Mary yet said toward the messenger, “How shall this be, since I am not knowing a man?” 35 And answering, the messenger said to her, “Holy spirit shall be coming on you, and power of Highest shall be overshadowing you; wherefore also, the holy one being generated shall be called a son of Placer. 36 And be perceiving, Elizabeth your relative, she also has gotten together a son, in her senescence, and this month is a sixth to her, she being called sterile, 37 it being that, with the Placer, no declaration shall be impossible.” 38 Mary yet said, “Be perceiving, I am the slave of Master. May it become to me down your declaration.” And the messenger came away from her. 39 In these days, yet, Mary, rising, was gone with diligence into the mountainous region, into a city of Judea. 40 And she entered into the house of Zacharias, and greets the Elizabeth. 41 And it became, as the Elizabeth hears the Mary’s greeting, the babe in her belly jumps, and the Elizabeth is filled full of holy spirit. 42 And she voices up a great cry and said, “Blessed are you among women, and blessed is the fruit of your belly! 43 And whence to me is this, that the mother of my Master may be coming toward me? 44 For be perceiving, as the sound of your greeting became into my ears, the babe in my belly jumps in exultation. 45 And happy is the one believing that there shall be a consummation to the things having been spoken to her from Master!” 46 And Mary said, “My soul is magnifying the Master, 47 and my spirit exults on the Placer my Savior, 48 it being that he looks on the lowness of his slave! For be perceiving, from the now, all the generations shall be counting me happy, 49 it being that the powerful one does great things to me, and holy is his name! 50 And his mercy is into generations and generations, to the ones fearing him. 51 He does holding in his upper arm. He scatters ones proud in the comprehension of their heart. 52 He lifts potentates down from thrones, and heightens low ones. 53 He fills hungering ones full of good things, and puts rich ones away empty. 54 He supports Israel his boy, to be reminded of mercy, 55 down as he speaks toward our fathers, to the Abraham and to his seed, into the duration.” 56 Mary remains together with her yet three months as it was, and returns into her house. 57 To the Elizabeth, yet, the time is fulfilled for her to be bringing forth, and she generates a son. 58 And the houses and the relatives about her hear that the Master magnifies his mercy with her, and they had joy together with her. 59 And it became, in the eighth day, they came to be circumcising the little boy. And they called him on the name of his father, Zacharias. 60 And answering, his mother said, “No, but he shall be called John.” 61 And they said toward her, that “There is no one out of your relatives who is being called this name.” 62 They nodded to his father, yet, as to what he may be willing for him to be called. 63 And requesting a tablet, he writes, saying, “His name is John.” And they all marvel. 64 Yet instantly, his mouth was opened up, his tongue also, and he spoke, blessing the Placer. 65 And there became fear on all the ones having houses about them. And in the whole mountainous region of the Judea, all these declarations were spoken. 66 And all the ones hearing, placed them in their heart, saying, “What, consequently, shall this little boy be?” For the hand of Master was with him. 67 And Zacharias his father is filled full of holy spirit, and prophesies, saying, 68 “Blessed is Master, the Placer of the Israel, it being that he oversees and does redemption to his people, 69 and rouses a horn of salvation to us in a house of David his boy, 70 down as from the duration he speaks through the mouth of his holy prophets, 71 salvation out of our enemies, and out of the hand of all the ones hating us, 72 to do mercy with our fathers, and to be reminded of his holy covenant, 73 an oath which he swears toward Abraham our father, to give it to us, 74 being rescued out of the hand of enemies, to be fearlessly offering divine service to him, 75 in benignity and righteousness in his sight, in all our days. 76 Yet you also, little boy, shall be called a prophet of Highest. For you shall be going before, in the sight of Master, to make ready his ways, 77 to give knowledge of salvation to his people, in forgiveness of their sins, 78 because of bowels of mercy of our Placer, in which he is overseeing for us a rising out of highness, 79 to appear to the ones sitting in darkness and a shadow of death, to fit our feet into a way of peace.” 80 The little boy grows up, yet, and became staunch in spirit. And he was in the desolate regions until the day of his showing up toward the Israel.
*the ultraliteral “out” was left here in the text to help understand what “out of” can indicate in differing contexts. In this context, John would be “out of” that belly while still in it, indicating he would still be part of that belly.

Chapter 2
1 It became in those days, yet, a decree came out from Caesar Augustus, for all the habitance to be registered. 2 This first registration became, Quirinius being leader of the Syria. 3 And all went to be registered, each into his city. 4 And Joseph, yet, stepped up from the Galilee, out of the city Nazareth, into the Judea, into a city of David which is being called Bethlehem, because of his being out of the house and fatherhood of David, 5 to be registered together with Mary, the one having been espoused to him, she being parturient. 6 It became, yet, in their being there, the days of her bringing forth are fulfilled. 7 And she brought forth her son, the firstborn, and swaddles him and reclines him in a manger, because there was no place to them in the caravansary. 8 And shepherds were in the same country, field-folding and guarding guards of the night on their flock. 9 And a messenger of Master stood by them, and glory of Master shines about them. And they were afraid a great fear. 10 And the messenger said to them, “Do not be fearing, for be perceiving, I am bringing a good message to you, great joy which shall be to all the people, 11 it being that today a Savior who is Anointed Master was brought forth to you in the city of David. 12 And the sign to you is this: you shall be finding a babe having been swaddled, and lying in a manger.” 13 And suddenly the messenger became together with a multitude of heavenly host, praising the Placer and saying, 14 “Glory to Placer among highest ones, and on land, peace among humans of delight!” 15 And it became, as the messengers came away from them into the heaven, the shepherds spoke toward one another, “By all means we may be coming through till Bethlehem, and we may be perceiving this declaration having become, which the Master makes known to us!” 16 And being diligent, they come and they found, besides the Mary and the Joseph, the babe also, lying in the manger. 17 Perceiving him, yet, they make known about the declaration spoken to them about this little boy. 18 And all the ones hearing, marvel about the things being spoken toward them by the shepherds. 19 The Mary, yet, kept all these declarations together, casting them together in her heart. 20 And the shepherds return, glorifying and praising the Placer on all which they hear and perceived, down as it was spoken toward them. 21 And of his circumcision, when eight days are fulfilled, his name was called Jesus, the one being called by the messenger before his being gotten together in the belly. 22 And when the days of their cleansing are fulfilled, down the law of Moses, they led him up into Jerusalem, to present him to the Master, 23 down as it has been written in a law of Moses, that every male opening up a matrix shall be called holy to the Master, 24 and to give a sacrifice down the thing having been declared in the law of Master, a yoke of turtle doves or two young doves. 25 And be perceiving, a human was in Jerusalem, to whom was the name Simeon, and this human was just and pious, toward receiving consolation of the Israel, and holy spirit was on him. 26 And it was to him, having been apprised by the holy spirit, to not be perceiving death ere he may be perceiving the Anointed of Master. 27 And being in the spirit, he came into the sacred place, and it was in the leading into there, of the parents of the little boy Jesus, they doing about him down the thing having been accustomed of the law. 28 And he receives him into the clasp in arms, and he blesses the Placer and said, 29 “Now, Owner, you are dismissing your slave in peace, down your declaration, 30 it being that my eyes perceived your salvation, 31 which you make ready down the face of all the peoples, 32 a light into revelation, of all nations, and a glory of your people Israel.” 33 And his father and mother were marveling on the things being spoken about him. 34 And Simeon blesses them and said to Mary his mother, 35 “Be perceiving, this one is lying here, into a fall and rise of many in the Israel, and into a sign being contradicted. 36 Yet also, a saber shall be coming through the soul of you yourself, which is how reasonings out of many hearts may ever be revealed.” 36 Also there was Hanna, a prophetess, a daughter of Penuel, out of the tribe Asher, she having advanced in many days, living with a man seven years from her virginity, 37 and being a widow till of eighty-four years, who does not withdraw from the sacred place, also offering divine service in petitions night and day. 38 And standing by in the same hour, she responded in the Placer, and spoke about him to all the ones toward receiving redemption in Jerusalem. 39 And as they consummate all the things down the law of Master, they return into the Galilee, into their city Nazareth. 40 The little boy grows up, yet, and became staunch, being filled with wisdom, and grace of Placer was on him. 41 And his parents went year by year into Jerusalem, to the festival of the Passover. 42 And when he became of twelve years, of them stepping up down the custom of the festival, 43 and consummating the days, in their returning, the boy Jesus remains in Jerusalem, and his parents did not know it. 44 Inferring him to be in the caravan, yet, they came a day’s way. And they sought him among the relatives and ones known. 45 And not finding him, they return into Jerusalem, seeking him. 46 And it became, after three days, they found him in the sacred place, seated amidst the teachers, and hearing them, and inquiring of them. 47 All the ones hearing him, yet, are amazed on his understanding and his answers. 48 And perceiving him, they were astonished, and his mother said toward him, “Offspring, why do you do thus to us? Be perceiving, your father and I sought you, being pained!” 49 And he said toward them, “Why is it that you sought me? Did you not perceive that it is a must for me to be in the things of my Father?” 50 And they did not understand the declaration which he speaks to them. 51 And he stepped down with them and came into Nazareth, and was being subject to them. And his mother carefully kept all the declarations in her heart. 52 And Jesus progressed in the wisdom and in prime, and in grace with Placer and with humans.
Chapter 3
1 In year fifteen of the leadership of Tiberius Caesar, Pontius Pilate yet being leader of the Judea, and Herod being tetrarch of the Galilee, Philip his brother yet being tetrarch of the country of Iturea and Trachonitus, and Lysanius being tetrarch of the Abilene, 2 on Annas and Caiaphas being chief priests, a declaration of Placer became on John the son of Zacharias, in the desolate region. 3 And he came into all the country about the Jordan, proclaiming an immersion of repentance into forgiveness of sins, 4 as it has been written in a scroll of words of Isaiah the prophet, “A voice of an imploring one is in the desolate region, ‘Make ready the way of Master! Be making his highways straight! 5 Every ravine shall be filled, and every mountain and hill shall be made low. And the crooked ways shall be into straight ones, and the rough ones into smooth ones, 6 and all flesh shall be seeing the Placer’s salvation.’ ” 7 Then he said to the throngs going out to be immersed by him, “Progeny of vipers, who intimates to you to be fleeing from the indignation about to be? 8 Produce fruits worthy of the repentance, then. And you should not begin to be saying in yourselves, ‘We are having the Abraham for a father.’ For I am saying to you, that the Placer is able, out of these stones, to rouse offspring to the Abraham. 9 Yet the ax is already lying toward the root of the trees. Every tree not producing ideal fruit, then, is being stricken out and cast into fire.” 10 And the throngs inquired of him, saying, “What, then, should we be doing?” 11 Answering, yet, he said to them, “The one having two tunics, let him be giving to the one not having. And the one having foods, let him be doing likewise.” 12 Yet tribute collectors also came to be immersed, and they say toward him, “Teacher, what should we be doing?” 13 He yet said toward them, “Do not be practicing more than the thing prescribed to you.” 14 Yet warriors inquired of him, saying, “And what should we be doing?” And he said to them, “You should not be intimidating anyone, neither should you be blackmailing. And be sufficed with your rations.” 15 Yet of the people all hoping and reasoning in their hearts about the John, lest he may be the Anointed, 16 the John answers, saying to all, “I am indeed immersing you in water. Yet the one coming is stronger than I, he whose strap of his sandals I am not enough to loose. He shall be immersing you in holy spirit and fire, 17 whose winnowing shovel is in his hand, to cleanse his threshing floor and be gathering the grain into his barn. Yet the chaff he shall be burning down in unextingished fire.” 18  And entreating many good things, then, he brought the people a good message. 19 Yet the Herod the tetrarch, being exposed by him about Herodias, his brother’s woman, and about all the wicked things which he does, the Herod 20 adds this on all, he locks the John down in jail. 21 It became, yet, in all the people being immersed, Jesus also being immersed and praying, for the heaven to be opened up, 22 and the holy spirit to step down in a bodily perception as a dove on him, and a voice to become out of heaven, “You are my beloved son; I delight in you.” 23 And beginning, Jesus was as if of thirty years, being a son (as it was inferred) of Joseph, of the Eli, 24 of the Matthat, of the Levi, of the Melchi, of the Jannai, of the Joseph, 25 of the Mattathias, of the Amos, of the Nahum, of the Esli, of the Naggai, 26 of the Maath, of the Mattathias, of the Shemei, of the Josech, of the Joda, 27 of the Joanna, of the Rhesa, of the Zerubbabel, of the Shalthiel, of the Neri, 28 of the Melchi, of the Addi, of the Cosam, of the Elmadam, of the Er, 29 of the Jesus, of the Eliezer, of the Jorim, of the Matthat, of the Levi, 30 of the Simeon, of the Judah, of the Joseph, of the Jonam, of the Eliakim, 31 of the Melea, of the Menna, of the Mattatha, of the Nathan, of the David, 32 of the Jesse, of the Obed, of the Boaz, of the Salmon, of the Nahson, 33 of the Aminnadab, of the Admein, of the Arni, of the Hezron, of the Pharez, of the Judah, 34 of the Jacob, of the Isaac, of the Abraham, of the Tera, of the Nahor, 35 of the Serug, of the Reu, of the Peleg, of the Eber, of the Shelah, 36 of the Cainan, of the Arphaxad, of the Shem, of the Noah, of the Lamech, 37 of the Methuselah, of the Enoch, of the Jerad, of the Maleleel, of the Cainan, of the Enosh, of the Seth, of the Adam, of the Placer.
Chapter 4
1 Jesus, yet, full of holy spirit, returns from the Jordan, and in the spirit, was led in the desolate region, 2 being tried forty days by the Adversary. And he ate nothing in those days. And of them being concluded, he hungers. 3 The Adversary, yet, said to him, “If you are a son of the Placer, be saying to this stone, that it may become bread.” 4 And the Jesus answered toward him, “It has been written, that not on bread only shall the human be living.” 5 And leading him up, he shows him all the kingdoms of the habitance, in a prick of time. 6 And the Adversary said to him, “All this authority and their glory, I shall be giving to you, it being that it has been given over to me, and to whom I may be willing, I am giving it. 7 You, then, if you are worshiping in my sight, it shall all be yours.” 8 And answering, the Jesus said to him, “It has been written, ‘You shall be worshiping Master your Placer, and to him only, shall you be offering divine service.’ ” 9 He led him, yet, into Jerusalem, and stands him on the winglet of the sacred place, and said to him, “If you are a son of the Placer, be casting yourself down hence, 10 for it has been written that, ‘His messengers shall be precepted about you, to protect you,’ 11 and that, ‘On hands they shall be lifting you, lest at some time you be toward striking your foot toward a stone.’ ” 12 And answering, the Jesus said to him that, “It has been declared, ‘You shall not be trying out Master your Placer.’ ” 13 And concluding every trial, the Adversary withdrew from him, until a season. 14 And the Jesus returns in the power of the spirit, into the Galilee. And averment about him came out, down the whole of the country about, 15 and he taught in their gathering places, being glorified by all. 16 And he came into Nazareth where he had been nurtured. And down as the custom to him, in the day of the sabbaths, he entered into the gathering place, and rose to read. 17 And a scrollet of the prophet Isaiah was given to him. And rotating up the scrollet, he found the place where it was written, 18 “Spirit of Master is on me, on account of which he anoints me to bring a good message to poor ones. He has commissioned me to proclaim forgiveness to captives, and observation to blind ones, to commission in forgiveness, ones having been oppressed, 19 to proclaim a receivable year of Master.” 20 And rotating the scrollet, rendering it to the subservient, he is seated. And the eyes of all in the gathering place were staring to him. 21 He begins, yet, to be saying toward them, that, “Today this writing has been fulfilled in your ears.” 22 And all testified about him, and marveled on the words of the grace going out of his mouth. And they said, “Is this not a son of Joseph?” 23 And he said toward them, “By all means you shall be declaring this parable to me, ‘Healer, cure yourself. As much as we hear becoming into the Capernaum, do here also, in your country.’ ” 24 He yet said, “Amen, I am saying to you, that not one prophet is received in his country. 25 On truth I am yet saying to you, there were many widows in the Israel in the days of Elijah, when the heaven is locked on three years and six months, as a great famine became on all the land. 26 And Elijah was sent toward none of them, except toward a widow woman into Sarepta of the Sidonia. 27 And on Elisha the prophet, there were many lepers in the Israel, and not one of them is cleansed, except Naaman the Syrian.” 28 And hearing these things, all in the gathering place are filled full of fury. 29 And rising, they cast him out of the city. And they led him till of a brow of the mountain on which their city had been built, so as to push him down the overhang. 30 Yet coming through their midst, he went, 31 and came down into Capernaum, a city of the Galilee. And he was teaching them in the sabbaths. 32 And they were astonished on his teaching, it being that his word was in authority. 33 And in the gathering place was a human having a spirit of an unclean demon. And he cries up in a great voice, 34 “Ha! What is it with us and you, Jesus Nazarean? Did you come to destroy us? I have perceived who you are, the holy one of the Placer!” 35 And the Jesus rebukes it, saying, “Be muzzled and be coming out from him.” And tossing him into the midst, the demon came out from him, harming him none. 36 And awe became on all, and they spoke together toward one another, saying, “What is this word, that in authority and power he is enjoining the unclean spirits, and they are coming out?” 37 And resound about him went out into every place of the country about. 38 Rising from the gathering place, yet, he entered into Simon’s house. Yet Simon’s mother-in-law was being pressed in a great fever, and they ask him about her. 39 And standing by upon her, he rebukes the fever, and it leaves her. Instantly rising, yet, she served them. 40 Yet of the sun slipping, all, as many as had ones weak in various diseases, led them toward him. His hands being placed on each one of them, yet, he cured them. 41 Yet demons also came out from many, clamoring and saying that, “You are the Placer’s son!” And rebuking them, he did not let them be speaking, it being that they had perceived him to be the Anointed. 42 Yet of day becoming, coming out, he was gone into a desolate place. And the throngs sought him, and came till of him. And they had him, so as to not be going from them. 43 Yet he said toward them that, “It is a must for me to bring the good message of the Placer’s kingdom to the other cities also, it being that I was commissioned on this.” 44 And he was proclaiming into the gathering places of the Judea.
Chapter 5
1 It became, yet, in the throng lying on him and hearing the Placer’s word, he also was standing beside the lake Gennesaret. 2 And he perceived two boats standing beside the lake. The fishers, yet, stepping away from them, plunged the nets. 3 Stepping into one of the boats, yet, which was Simon’s, he asks him to be leading on up slightly from the land. Being seated, yet, he taught the throngs out of the boat. 4 As he ceases speaking, yet, he said toward the Simon, “Be leading on up into the depth, and lower your nets into a catch.” 5 And answering, Simon said, “Adept one, we got nothing, toiling through a whole night. Yet on your declaration, I shall be lowering the nets.” 6  And doing this, they lock together a multitude of many fishes. Their nets, yet, were burst. 7 And they nod to the partners in the other boat, coming, to be getting together with them. And they came, and they fill both the boats, so as, they to be made submerging. 8 Perceiving it, yet, Simon Peter falls toward the knees of Jesus, saying, “Be coming out from me, it being that I am a sinner man, Master!” 9 For awe had itself about him and all the ones together with him, on the catch of the fishes which they got together. 10 Likewise, yet, were both James and John, sons of Zebedee, who were participants with the Simon. And the Jesus said toward the Simon, “Do not be fearing; from the now, you shall be live catching humans.” 11 And leading the boats down on the land, leaving all, they follow him. 12 And it became, in his being in one of the cities, be perceiving, there is also a man full of leprosy. Perceiving the Jesus, yet, falling on his face, he besought him, saying, “If you are willing, you are able to cleanse me!” 13 And stretching out his hand, he touches him, saying, “I am willing; be cleansed.” And immediately the leprosy came away from him. 14 And he charges him to, “Be saying it to no one. Coming away, show yourself to the priest, and about your cleansing, offer down as Moses sets toward you, into a testimony to them.” 15 Yet rather, the word about him came through, and many throngs came together, to be hearing him and be cured from their weaknesses. 16 He, yet, was retreating in the desolate regions and praying. 17 And it became in one of the days, he was also teaching. And sitting were Pharisees and law teachers who had come out of every village in the Galilee and Judea and Jerusalem. And power of Master was there into him to be healing. 18  And be perceiving, men were carrying on a couch a human who was paralyzed, and they sought to be carrying him into there and place him in his sight. 19 And not finding how they may be carrying him into there because of the throng, they, stepping up on the housetop, let him down through the tiles, together with the cot, into the midst in front of the Jesus. 20 And perceiving their belief, he said, “Human, your sins have been forgiven you.” 21 And the writers and Pharisees begin to be reasoning, saying, “Who is this who is speaking calumnies? Who is able to forgive sins, except the Placer only?” 22 Yet recognizing their reasonings, answering, the Jesus said toward them, “What are you reasoning in your hearts? 23 What is easier to be saying, ‘Your sins have been forgiven you,’ or to be saying, ‘Be rousing and be walking’? 24 Yet that you may be perceiving that the son of the human is having authority on the land to forgive sins,” he said to the one having been paralyzed, “I am saying to you, be rousing, and lifting your cot, be going into your house.” 25 And instantly rising in their sight, lifting that on which he was laid down, he came away into his house, glorifying the Placer. 26 And amazement got them all, and they glorified the Placer. And they are filled full of fear, saying that, “We perceived baffling things today!” 27 And after these things, he came out and gazes at a tribute collector, Levi in name, sitting at the tribute office. And he said to him, “Be following me.” 28 And leaving all, rising, he followed him. 29 And Levi makes a great reception to him in his house, and there was a vast throng of tribute collectors and others who were with them lying down. 30 And the Pharisees and their writers murmured toward his learners, saying, “Because of what, are you eating and drinking with the tribute collectors and sinners?” 31 And answering, the Jesus said toward them, “The ones being healthy are not having need of a healer, but the ones having it evilly are. 32 I have come to call, not just ones, but sinners, into repentance.” 33 They yet say toward him, “The learners of John are fasting frequently and making many petitions, likewise also the ones of the Pharisees, yet the ones to you are eating and drinking.” 34 Yet the Jesus said toward them, “The sons of the bridal chamber in which the bridegroom is with them, are not able to be made to fast. 35 Yet days shall be coming, and whenever the bridegroom may be lifted away from them, they shall be fasting then, in those days.” 36 Yet he also said a parable toward them, that, “No one, splitting a patch from a new cloak, is casting it on an old cloak. Yet if so, shall not the new also surely be splitting? And the patch from the new shall not be agreeing with the old. 37 And no one is casting young wine into old skin bottles. Yet if so, shall not the young wine surely be bursting the skin bottles? And it shall be poured out, and the skin bottles shall be destroyed. 38 But young wine is cast into new skin bottles. 39 And no one drinking old, is willing for young; for he is saying, ‘The old is kindly.’ ”
Chapter 6
1 It became in a sabbath, yet, for him to be going through sowings, and his learners plucked the plant ears and ate, chafing them in their hands. 2 Yet some of the Pharisees say, “You are doing something which is not allowed in the sabbaths.” 3 And answering, the Jesus said toward them, “Did you not read this which David does when he hungers, he and the ones with him, 4 as he entered into the Placer’s house? And getting the breads of the purpose, he ate, and gives to the ones with him, ones who are not allowed to be eating it unless they are the priests only.” 5 And he said to them, “The son of the human is Master of the sabbath.” 6 It became in a different sabbath, yet, for him to be entering into the gathering place and to be teaching. And a human was there, and his right hand was withered. 7 The writers and the Pharisees, yet, scrutinized him, that if he is curing in the sabbath, they may be finding it, to be accusing him. 8 Yet he had perceived their reasonings. He yet said to the man having the withered hand, “Be rousing, and be standing into the midst.” And rising, he stood. 9 The Jesus yet said toward them, “I am inquiring of you, if it is allowed in the sabbath to do good, or to do evil, to save a soul, or to destroy it?” 10 And looking about them all, he said to him, “Stretch out your hand.” He does it, yet, and his hand was restored. 11 They, yet, are filled full of unthinking, and spoke toward one another, what they may be doing to the Jesus. 12 Yet it became in these days, for him to be coming out into the mountain to pray. And throughout the night he was in the Placer’s prayer. 13 And when it became day, he voices toward his learners, and is choosing twelve from them, whom he also names commissioners: 14 Simon, whom he also names Peter, and Andrew his brother, and James, and John, and Philip, and Bartholomew, 15 and Matthew, and Thomas, and James of Alpheus, and Simon the one called Zealot, 16 and Judas of James, and Judas Iscariot, who became a traitor. 17 And stepping down with them, he stood on a foot place. And there was a vast throng of his learners and a vast multitude of the people from all of the Judea and Jerusalem and of the seaside of Tyre and Sidon, who came to hear him and be healed from their diseases. 18 And the ones being annoyed from unclean spirits were cured. 19 And all the throng sought to be touching him, it being that power came out from him, and he healed all. 20 And lifting up his eyes into his learners, he said, “Happy are the poor, for the Placer’s kingdom is yours. 21 Happy are the ones hungering now, it being that you shall be satisfied. Happy are the ones lamenting now, it being that you shall be laughing. 22 Happy are you whenever the humans may be hating you, and severing you, and reproaching you, and casting out your name as wicked, on account of the son of the human. 23 You may be having joy in that day, and jump. For be perceiving, your wage in the heaven is much. For their fathers did down the same to the prophets. 24 However, woe to the rich, it being that you are having your consolation, from it. 25 Woe to the ones having been filled now, it being that you shall be hungering. Woe to the ones laughing now, it being that you shall be mourning and lamenting. 26 Woe, whenever all the humans may be saying ideally of you. For their fathers did down the same to the false prophets. 27 But to you, the ones hearing, I am saying, be loving your enemies, be doing ideally to the ones hating you. 28 Be blessing the ones cursing you. Be praying about the ones traducing you. 29 To the ones beating you on the cheek, be tendering the other also. And from the one lifting your cloak, you should not be forbidding him the tunic also. 30 To everyone requesting, be giving, and from the one lifting the thing yours, do not be requesting it from him. 31 And down as you are willing that the humans be doing to you, you be doing to them likewise. 32 And if you are loving the one loving you, what grace is it to you? For the sinners also are loving the ones loving them. 33 For also, if you are doing good to the ones doing good to you, what grace is it to you? The sinners also are doing the same. 34 And if you are lending from whom you are expecting to be getting, what grace is it to you? Sinners also are lending to sinners, that they may be getting from them the things equal. 35 However, be loving your enemies, and be doing good, and be lending, expecting nothing from them, and your wage shall be much, and you shall be sons of Highest, it being that he is kind on the ungrateful and wicked ones. 36 Become pitiful, down as your Father also is pitiful. 37 And do not be judging, and by no means may you be judged. And do not be convicting, and by no means may you be convicted. Be releasing, and you shall be released. 38 Be giving, and it shall be given to you, an ideal measure, it having been squeezed, shaken, and poured out over, shall they be giving into your bosom. For in what measure you are measuring, it shall be measured again to you.” 39 Yet he also said a parable to them: “What blind one is able to be guiding a blind one? Shall not both be falling into a pit? 40 A learner is not above the teacher; yet having been equipped, every one shall be as his teacher. 41 Why, yet, are you observing the shrivel in your brother’s eye, yet are not considering the beam in your own eye? 42 How are you able to be saying to your brother, ‘Brother, let me be casting out the shrivel in your eye,’ yourself not observing the beam in your eye? Hypoocrite, first be casting the beam out of your eye, and then you shall be observing through, to be casting the shrivel out of the eye of your brother. 43 An ideal tree is not producing rotten fruit. 44 For each tree is being known out of its own fruit. For they are not collecting figs out of thorns. Neither are they cropping grapes out of a thorn bush. 45 The good human, out of the good store of the heart, is carrying forth the good; and the wicked, out of the wicked, is carrying forth the wicked. For his mouth is speaking out of an abundunce of the heart. 46 Why, yet, are you calling me, ‘Master, Master,’ and are not doing what I am saying? 47 Every one coming toward me, and hearing my words, and doing them, I shall be intimating to you what he is like. 48 He is like a human building a house, who digs, and deepens, and places a foundation on the rock. Of an indundation becoming, yet, the river bursts toward that house, and it is not strong enough to shake it, because of its being built ideally. 49 Yet the one hearing and not doing, is like a human building a house on the land apart from a foundation, toward which the river bursts, and it straightway collapses, and the burst of that house became great.”
Chapter 7
1 Since in fact, he fulfills all his declarations into the hearing of the people, he entered into Capernaum. 2 There, yet, was a centurion whose slave, having it evilly, was about to be deceasing, who was valued to him. 3 Yet hearing about the Jesus, he commissions toward him seniors of the Judaans, asking him, which is how coming, he may be saving his slave. 4 The ones coming along toward the Jesus, yet, entreated him diligently, saying that he to whom he should be tendering this is worthy, 5 “For he is loving our nation, and he builds to us a gathering place.” 6 The Jesus, yet, went together with them. Of him already having himself not far from the house, yet, the centurion sends friends, saying to him, “Master, do not be bothering, for I am not enough that you may be entering under my roof; 7 wherefore neither am I worthy to be coming toward you. But be saying a word, and let my boy be healed. 8 For I also am a human set under authority, having warriors under myself, and I am saying to this one, ‘Be gone,’ and he is going, and to another, ‘Be coming,’ and he is coming, and to my slave, ‘Do this,’ and he is doing it.” 9 Hearing these things, yet, the Jesus marvels at him, and being turned to the throng following him, he said, “I am saying to you, not yet in the Israel did I find so much belief!” 10 And returning into the house, the ones being sent found the slave healthy. 11 And it became in the next, he was gone into a city called Nain, and his learners and a vast throng went together with him. 12 As he nears the gate of the city, yet, be perceiving, there was fetched out, having died, an only son generated to his mother, and she was a widow, and a throng enough, of the city, was together with her. 13 And perceiving her, the Master is having bowels of compassion on her, and said to her, “Do not be lamenting.” 14 And coming toward it, he touches the bier. The ones bearing it, yet, stand. And he said, “Youth, I am saying to you, be roused.” 15 And the dead one sits up, and begins to be speaking. And he renders him to his mother. 16 Fear got them all, yet, and they glorified the Placer, saying that, “A great prophet was roused among us!” and that, “The Placer oversees for his people!” 17 And this word about him came out in the whole Judea and in all the country about. 18 And his learners report to John about all these things. 19 And calling some two of his learners toward him, the John sends toward the Master, saying, “Are you the one coming, or may we be hoping for another?” 20 Becoming along toward him, yet, the men say, “John the immersor commissions us toward you, saying, ‘Are you the one coming, or may we be hoping for another?’ ” 21 In that hour he cures many from diseases and scourges and wicked spirits, and he graces many blind ones to be observing. 22 And answering, he said to them, “Being gone, report to John what you perceived and hear. Blind ones are looking up, lame ones are walking, lepers are being cleansed and deaf-mutes are hearing, dead ones are being roused, and poor ones are having a good message brought to them. 23 And happy is he who, if ever, is not being snared in me.” 24 Of the messengers of John coming away, yet, he begins to be saying about John to the throngs, “What did you come out into the desolate region to gaze at, a reed being shaken by wind? 25 But what did you come out to be perceiving, a human enveloped in soft garments? Be perceiving, the ones in glorious garmenting and in luxury are inhering among the kingly ones. 26 But what did you come out to be perceiving, a prophet? Yes, I am saying to you, and one abounding more than a prophet. 27 This is about whom it has been written, ‘Be perceiving, I am commissioning my messenger before your face, who shall be constructing your way in front of you.’ 28 I am saying to you, that among ones generated of women, there is not one greater than John. Yet the one littler in the Placer’s kingdom, is greater than he.” 29 And all the people hearing, and the tax collectors, justify the Placer, they being immersed into the immersion of John. 30 Yet the Pharisees and the law experts, not being immersed by him, repudiate into themselves the Placer’s counsel. 31 “To what, then, shall I be likening the humans of this generation, and to what are they like? 32 They are like little boys and girls sitting in a market and voicing toward one another saying, ‘We flute, and you do not dance! We dirge, and you do not lament!’ 33 For John the immersor has come eating no bread, neither drinking wine, and you are saying, ‘He is having a demon!’ 34 The son of the human has come eating and drinking, and you are saying, ‘Be perceiving, an eater and wine drinker, a friend of tribute collectors and of sinners!’ 35 And the wisdom was justified, from all its offspring.” 36 Someone of the Pharisees, yet, asked him that he may be eating with him. And coming into the Pharisee’s house, he was reclined. 37 And be perceiving, some woman who was a sinner in the city, and recognizing that he is lying down in the Pharisee’s house, fetching an alabaster vase, 38 and standing behind him, beside his feet, lamenting, with tears, she begins to be raining his feet, and with the hairs of her head, she wiped, and kissed his feet, and rubbed them with the attar. 39 Perceiving it, yet, the Pharisee, the one calling him, said in himself saying, “If this one was a prophet, he would know who and from where the woman is who is touching him, that she is a sinner.” 40 And answering, the Jesus said toward him, “Simon, I am having something to be saying to you.” He is averring, yet, “Be saying it.” 41 “Two were debtors to some loaner. The one owed five hundred denarii, yet the other, fifty. 42 Of them not having it to render, he graces it to them both. Who of them, then, shall be loving him more?” 43 Answering, Simon said, “I am getting that it is to whom he graces the more.” He yet said to him, “You judge correctly.” 44 And being turned toward the woman, he averred to the Simon, “You are observing this woman. I came into your house. You did not give water to me on my feet, yet this one rains my feet with her tears, and wipes them with her hair. 45 You do not give a kiss to me, yet from when I entered, this one did not intermit kissing my feet. 46 You do not rub my head with olive oil, yet this one rubs my feet with attar, 47 on grace* of which, I am saying to you, her many sins have been forgiven, it being that she loves much. Yet to whom forgiveness is slight, loving is slight.” 48 He yet said to her, “Your sins have been forgiven.” 49 And the ones lying back together begin to be saying among themselves, “Who is this who is also forgiving sins?” 50 Yet he said toward the woman, “Your belief has saved you. Be going into peace.”
Chapter 8
1 And it became in the next, he also traverses down city and village, proclaiming and bringing a good message of the Placer’s kingdom, the twelve also being together with him. 2 Also there were some women, who were cured from wicked spirits and weaknesses, Mary, the one being called Magdalene, from whom seven demons had come out, 3 and Joanna, woman of Chuza, a manager of Herod, and Susanna, and many others who served to them out of their belongings. 4 Of a vast throng being together, yet, and the ones city by city going toward him, he said through a parable: 5 “The one sowing came out to sow his seed. And in his sowing, some indeed falls beside the way, and it was trampled, and the flyers of the heaven devoured it. 6 And other falls down on the rock, and being sprouted, it is withered because of not having moisture. 7 And other falls amidst the thorns, and being sprouted together, the thorns choke it. 8 And other falls into the good land, and being sprouted, produces fruit, a hundredfold.” Saying these things, he voiced, “The one having ears to be hearing, let him be hearing.” 9 Yet his learners inquired of him, “What may this parable be?” 10 He yet said, “To you it has been given to know the secrets of the Placer’s kingdom. Yet to the rest, it is in parables, that observing, they may not be observing, and hearing, they may not be understanding. 11 This, yet, is the parable: The seed is the Placer’s word. 12 The ones beside the way, yet, are the ones hearing, thereafter the Adversary is coming and lifting the word from their heart, lest believing, they may be saved. 13 Yet the ones on the rock are who, whenever they are hearing, are receiving the word with joy; and these are not having a root, who are believing toward a season, and in a season of trial, are withdrawing. 14 Yet the falling into the thorns, these are the ones hearing, and going under anxieties and riches and gratifications of the livelihood, are being choked, and are not bearing consummate fruit. 15 Yet that in the ideal land, these are who, hearing the word in an ideal and good heart, are retaining it, and bearing fruit in endurance. 16 No one, yet, touch-lighting a lamp, is covering it with a utensil, or placing it down under a couch, but is placing it on a lampstand, that the ones entering may be observing the light. 17 For nothing is hidden, which shall not become apparent, neither hidden away, which may by no means be known and coming into apparency. 18 Be observing, then, how you are hearing. For whoever may be having, to him shall it be given. And whoever may be having not, what he is seeming to be having shall be lifted from him.” 19 His mother and brother, yet, came along toward him, and they were not able to be happening together with him, because of the throng. 20 It was reported to him, yet, “Your mother and brothers have stood outside, willing to be perceiving you.” 21 Yet answering, he said toward them, “These are a mother and brother of me, the ones hearing and doing the Placer’s word.” 22 It became, yet, in one of the days, he also stepped into a boat, his learners also, and he said toward them, “We may be coming through into the other side of the lake.” And they were led up. 23 Of them floating, yet, he sleeps, and a storm of wind stepped down into the lake, and they were filled full and endangered. 24 Coming toward him, yet, they rouse him, saying, “Adept one! Adept one! We are being destroyed!” Being roused, yet, he rebukes the wind and the surge of the water, and they cease, and it became calm. 25 He yet said to them, “Where is your belief?” Yet they marvel, saying toward one another, “Who, consequently, is this, that he is enjoining also the winds and the water, and they are obeying him?” 26 And they float down into the country of the Gerasenes, which is in a stead, other side from the Galilee. 27 Coming out on the land, yet, some man out of the city meets him, having demons. And in a time enough, he does not slip into a cloak, and did not remain in a house, but in the tombs. 28 Perceiving the Jesus, yet, crying up, he falls toward him, and in a great voice said, “What is it with me and you, Jesus, son of the highest Placer? I am beseeching you, that you should not be having me in an ordeal!” 29 For he charges the unclean spirit to be coming out from the human. For it had snatched him together many times, and he was bound in chains and fetters, being guarded. And bursting through the bonds, he was driven by the demon into the the desolate regions. 30 The Jesus yet inquires of him, “What is the name to you?” He yet said, “Legion,” it being that many demons came into him. 31 And they entreated him that he should not be enjoining them to be coming away into the abyss. 32 There, yet, was a herd enough of hogs being grazed in the mountain, and they entreat him that he may be permitting them to be coming into those. 33 Coming out from the human, yet, the demons came into the hogs. And the herd rushes down the overhang into the lake, and was choked. 34 Perceiving the thing having become, yet, the ones grazing the hogs fled, and they report it into the city and into the fields. 35 They came out, yet, to be perceiving the thing having become. And they came toward the Jesus, and they found the human from whom the demons came out, he being garmented and sane, sitting beside the feet of Jesus. And they were afraid. 36 The ones perceiving how the demonized one was saved, yet, report it to them. 37 And all the multitude of the country about the Gerasenes asks him to be coming away from them, it being that they were pressed in a great fear. He, stepping into a boat, yet, returns. 38 The man, yet, from whom the demons had come out, besought of him to be together with him. Yet he dismisses him, saying, 39 “You be returning into your house, and be relating as much as the Placer does to you.” And he came away down the whole city, proclaiming as much as the Jesus does to him. 40 In the Jesus returning, yet, the throng welcomes him, for they were all hoping for him. 41 And be perceiving, a man to whom was the name Jairus came, and this one inhered as chief of the gathering place. And falling beside the feet of Jesus, he entreated him to be coming into his house, 42 it being that there was a daughter to him, an only one generated, so as of twelve years, and this one died. In his going away, yet, the throngs choked him together. 43 And a woman, being twelve years in a gushing of blood, who consuming her whole livelihood with healers, being not strong enough to be cured from anyone, 44 coming toward him, behind him, touches the tassel of his cloak. And instantly, the gushing of the blood stood. 45 And the Jesus said, “Who is the one touching me?” All disowning it, yet, the Peter said, “Adept one, the throngs are pressing and constricting you.” 46 Yet the Jesus said, “Who touches me? For I knew power having come out from me.” 47 The woman, yet, perceiving that she was not eluding him, came, trembling and prostrating to him. She reports, in the sight of all the people, the cause because of which she touches him, and so as, was healed instantly. 48 He, yet, said to her, “Daughter, your belief has saved you. Be going into peace.” 49 Of him still speaking, someone is coming from the chief of the gathering place, saying that, “Your daughter has died; by no means still be bothering the teacher.” 50 Yet the Jesus, hearing it, answered to him, “Do not be fearing; believe only, and she shall be saved.” 51 Coming into the house, yet, he does not let anyone be entering together with him, except Peter and John and James and the father and mother of the girl. 52 All lamented, yet, and they grieved for her. Yet he said, “Do not be lamenting, for she did not die, but is drowsing.” 53 And having perceived that she died, they ridiculed him. 54 He, yet, holding her hand, voices, saying, “Girl, be rousing.” 55 And her spirit turns back, and she rose instantly. And he prescribes it be given to her to be eating. 56 And her parents were amazed, yet he charges to them to be saying to no one the thing having become.
Chapter 9
1 Calling together the twelve, yet, he gives to them power and authority on all the demons, and to be curing diseases. 2 And he commissions them to be proclaiming the Placer’s kingdom and to be healing the weak. 3 And he said toward them, “Be lifting nothing into the way, neither a rod, nor a beggar’s bag, nor bread, nor silver, nor are you to be having two tunics. 4 And into whichever house you may be entering, be remaining there, and thence be coming out. 5 And as many as may be not receiving you, coming out from that city, be quivering the dust from your feet, into a testimony on them.” 6 Coming out, yet, they came through down the villages, bringing a good message and curing everywhere. 7 Herod the tetrarch, yet, hears all the things becoming and was bewildered because of the things being said by some, that John was roused out of dead ones, 8 by some, yet, that Elijah appeared, yet of others, that some prophet of the beginning ones rose. 9 Herod yet said, “John, I behead. Yet who is this, about whom I am hearing such things?” And he sought to be perceiving him. 10 And returning, the commissioners related to him as much as they do. And getting them, he retreats privately into a city being called Bethsaida. 11 Yet the throngs, knowing it, follow him. And welcoming them, he spoke to them about the Placer’s kingdom, and he healed the ones having need of a cure. 12 Yet the day begins to be declining. Coming toward him, yet, the twelve say to him, “Dismiss the throng, that being gone into the villages and fields around, they may be loosing-down and finding grain, it being that we are here in a desolate place.” 13 Yet he said toward them, “You be giving it to them to be eating.” Yet they say, “With us are not more than five breads and two fishes, unless being gone, we are buying foods into all this people.” 14 For they were as if five thousand men. Yet he said toward his learners, “Recline them down reclines, fifty apiece.” 15 And they do thus, and they recline them all. 16 Getting the five breads and the two fishes, yet, looking up into the heaven, he blesses them, and breaks them down, and gave to the learners to place with the throng. 17 And they all ate and are satisfied. And the abounding to them of breaks was lifted, it being twelve panniers. 18 And it became, in his praying, he only, the learners were together with him. And he inquires of them, saying, “Who are the throngs saying I am?” 19 Answering, yet, they say, “John the immersor, yet others, Elijah, yet others, that some prophet of the beginning ones rose.” 20 Yet he said to them, “Yet you, who are you saying I am?” Answering, yet, Peter said, “The Placer’s Anointed.” 21 Rebuking them, yet, he charges to be saying this to no one, 22 saying that, “It is a must for the son of the human to be suffering much, and to be rejected from the seniors and chief priests and writers, and to be killed, and in the third day to be roused.” 23 He said toward all, yet, “If anyone is willing to be coming behind me, let him disown himself, and let him lift his pole day by day, and let him be following me. 24 For whoever may be willing to save his soul, shall be destroying it; yet whoever may be destroying his soul on account of me, this one shall be saving it. 25 For what is a human being benefited, gaining the whole world, yet destroying or forfeiting himself? 26 For whoever is being ashamed of me and of my words, of this one shall the son of the human be ashamed, when he is coming in the glory of he and of the Father and of the holy messengers. 27 Yet I am saying to you, truly, there are some of the same ones having stood here, who shall by no means be tasting of death, till they are perceiving the Placer’s kingdom.” 28 It became, yet, as if eight days after these words, getting Peter and James and John, he stepped up into the mountain to pray. 29 And in his praying, the perception of his face became different, and his garments were gleaming white. 30 And be perceiving, two men spoke together with him, who were Moses and Elijah, 31 who being seen in glory, said things of his exodus which he was about to be fulfilling in Jerusalem. 32 Yet the Peter and the ones together with him were heavied with sleep. Yet rousing, they perceived his glory and the two men having stood together with him. 33 And it became, in their being detached from him, the Peter said toward the Jesus, “Adept one, it is ideal for us to be here, and we should be making three tents, one to you, and one to Moses, and one to Elijah,” not having perceived what he is saying. 34 Yet of him saying these things, there became a cloud, and it overshadowed them. In their entering into the cloud, yet, they were afraid. 35 And a voice became out of the cloud, saying, “This is my chosen son; be hearing him.” 36 And in the becoming of the voice, only Jesus was found, and they hush. And in those days, they report to no one anything which they have seen. 37 It became in the next day, yet, of them coming down from the mountain, a vast throng meets together with him. 38 And be perceiving, a man from the throng implores, saying, “Teacher, I am beseeching you, look on my son, it being that he is an only one generated, 39 and be perceiving, a spirit is getting him, and suddenly he is crying, and it is convulsing him with froth, and with difficulty is departing from him, crushing him. 40 And I besought of your learners, that they may be casting it out, and they were not enabled.” 41 Answering, yet, the Jesus said, “O unbelieving and perverted generation! Till when shall I be toward you and tolerating you? Be leading your son here.” 42 Of him still coming toward him, yet, the demon bursts him and convulses him together. Yet the Jesus rebukes the unclean spirit and heals the boy, and renders him to his father. 43 All were astonished, yet, on the Placer’s magnificence. Of all marveling on all which he did, yet, he said toward his learners, 44 “Be placing these words into yours ears, for the son of the human is about to be given over into hands of humans.” 45 Yet they did not know this declaration, and it was screened from them, that they may not be sensing it. And they feared to ask him about this declaration. 46 Yet a reasoning entered among them, as to who may be the greater of them. 47 The Jesus, yet, having perceived the reasoning of their heart, getting a little child, stands it beside himself, 48 and said to them, “Whoever, on my name, is receiving this little child, is receiving me. And whoever is receiving me, is receiving the one commissioning me. For the one inhering littler among you all, this one is great.” 49 Answering, yet, John said, “Adept one, we perceived someone, in your name, casting out demons, and we forbade him, it being that he is not following with us.” 50 Yet the Jesus said toward him, “Do not be forbidding; for he who is not against you, is over* you.” 51 It became, yet, in the days of his taking up being fulfilled, he also stands fast his face to be going into Jerusalem. 52 And he commissions messengers before his face. And being gone, they came into a village of Samaritans, so as to make ready to him. 53 And they do not receive him, it being that his face was going into Jerusalem. 54 Perceiving it, yet, the learners James and John say, “Master, are you willing that we may be saying for fire to step down from the heaven and to consume them?” 55 Yet being turned, he rebukes them. 56 And they were gone into a different village. 57 And of them going in the way, someone said toward him, “I shall be following you wherever you may be coming away.” 58 And the Jesus said to him, “The jackals are having burrows, and the flyers of the heaven, roosts, yet the son of the human is not having somewhere he may be reclining his head.” 59 He said toward a different one, yet, “Be following me.” Yet he said, “Master, permit me to first be coming away to entomb my father.” 60 Yet he said to him, “Let the dead ones entomb the dead ones of themselves, yet you, coming away, be publishing the Placer’s kingdom.” 61 Yet a different one also said, “I shall be following you, Master, yet first permit me to set out from the ones into my house.” 62 Yet the Jesus said toward him, “No one casting his hand on a plow and looking into the things behind, is fit in the Placer’s kingdom.”
Chapter 10
1 After these things, yet, the Master indicates seventy-two others, and he commissions them two by two before his face into every city and place where he was about to be coming. 2 He said toward them, yet, “The harvest is indeed vast, yet the workers are few. Be beseeching the Master of the harvest, then, which is how he may be casting workers out into his harvest. 3 Be going away. Be perceiving, I am commissioning you as lambs in a midst of wolves. 4 Do not be bearing a purse, nor a beggar’s bag, nor sandals. And down the way, you should be greeting no one. 5 Yet into whichever house you may be entering, first be saying, ‘Peace to this house.’ 6 And if a son of peace is there, your peace shall be relaxing on it; yet if not, it shall be going back on you. 7 Be remaining in the same house, yet, eating and drinking the things from them, for the worker is worthy of his wage. 8 And into whichever city you may be entering and they are receiving you, be eating the things placed beside you. 9 And be curing the weak ones in it, and be saying to them, ‘The Placer’s kingdom has neared on you.’ 10 Yet into whichever city you may be entering and they are not receiving you, coming out into its broad areas, say, 11 ‘And the dust joined to us, out of your city, into our feet, we are wiping it from us. However, be knowing this, that the Placer’s kingdom has neared to you.’ 12 I am saying to you, that it shall be more tolerable in that day to Sodom, than to that city. 13 Woe to you, Chorazin, woe to you, Bethsaida, it being that if the powers becoming in you were become in Tyre and Sidon, they would repent long ago, sitting in sackloth and ashes! 14 However, in the judgment, it shall be more tolerable to Tyre and Sidon than to you. 15 And you, Capernaum, shall you be heightened till of heaven? You shall be stepping down till of the unperceived. 16 The one hearing you, is hearing me, and the one repudiating you, is repudiating me. Yet the one repudiating me, is repudiating the one commissioning me.” 17 The seventy-two return with joy, yet, saying, “Master, also the demons are being subject to us in your name!” 18 He said to them, yet, “I beheld the Satan falling out of the heaven, as lightning. 19 Be perceiving, I have given you the authority to be treading upon serpents, and scorpions, and on every power of the enemy, and by no means may anything be injuring you. 20 However, do not be having joy in this, that the spirits are being subject to you; yet be having joy that your names have been written in the heavens.” 21 In this hour he exults in the holy spirit and said, “I am avowing out to you, Father, Master of the heaven and of the land, it being that you conceal these things from wise and intelligent ones, and you reveal them to minors! Yes, Father, it being that thus it became a delight in front of you! 22 All was given over to me by my Father, and no one is knowing who the son is, except the Father, and who the Father is, except the son, and whomever the son may be intending to reveal him to.” 23 And being turned toward the learners, privately he said, “Happy are the eyes observing things which you are observing. 24 For I am saying to you, that many prophets and kings will to be perceiving things which you are observing, and to hear things which you are hearing, and they do not hear them.” 25 And be perceiving, some law expert rose, trying him out, saying, “Teacher, doing what, may I be enjoying an allotment of durative life?” 26 He said toward him, yet, “What has been written in the law? How are you reading it?” 27 Answering, yet, he said, “You shall be loving Master your Placer, out of your whole heart, and in your whole soul, and in your whole strength, and in your whole comprehension, and your associate as yourself.” 28 He yet said to him, “You answered correctly. Be doing this, and you shall be living.” 29 Yet willing to justify himself, he said toward the Jesus, “And who is my associate?” 30 Getting under it, the Jesus said, “Some human stepped down from Jerusalem into Jericho, and falls among robbers, who both stripping him and placing blows on him, came away, letting him be half dead. 31 Down coincidence, yet, some priest stepped down in that way, and perceiving him, passed by in a stead. 32 Likewise, yet, some Levite also coming down the place and perceiving him, passed by in a stead. 33 Yet some Samaritan going that way, came down by him, and perceiving him, is having bowels of compassion. 34 And coming toward him, he bandages his wounds, pouring on olive oil and wine. Mounting him on his own beast, yet, he led him into a khan, and was caring of him. 35 And on the morrow, casting out two denarii, he renders them to the khan keeper and said, ‘Be caring of him, and whatever you may be spending toward it, I shall be rendering it to you in my coming back.’ 36 Of these three, which, to you, is seeming to have become an associate of the one falling among the robbers?” 37 He yet said, “The one doing the mercy with him.” The Jesus yet said to him, “Be going and be doing likewise.” 38 In their going, yet, he came into a village. Some woman, yet, Martha in name, receives him. 39 And to this one, yet, was a sister called Mary, who also being seated toward the Master’s feet, heard his word. 40 The Martha, yet, was distracted about much serving. Standing by, yet, she said, “Master, is it not a care to you, that my sister left only me to be serving? Be saying to her, then, that she may be supporting together with me.” 41 Yet answering, the Master said to her, “Martha, Martha, you are anxious and in a tumult about many things. 42 Yet there is need of one thing. For Mary chooses the good part, which shall not be lifted from her.”
Chapter 11
1 And it became, in his praying in some place, as he ceases, one of his learners said toward him, “Master, teach us to be praying, down as John also teaches his learners.” 2 He said to them, yet, “Whenever you are praying, be saying, ‘Father, let your name be made holy. Let your kingdom be coming. 3 Be giving to us our daily doled bread. 4 And forgive us our sins, for we ourselves also are forgiving everyone who is owing to us. And may you not be carrying us into trial.’ ” 5 And he said toward them, “Who out of you shall be having a friend? And going to him of midnight, you shall also be saying to him, ‘Friend, let me use three breads, 6 since in fact, a friend of me came along toward me out of a way, and I am not having anything which I shall be placing beside him.’ 7 And that one inside may be answering, ‘Do not be tendering toils to me. The door has already been locked and my little children are with me into the bed. I am not able to rise to give to you.’ 8 I am saying to you, and if he shall not be rising, giving to him because of his being a friend, surely because of his pestering, being roused, he shall be giving to him as much as he is needing. 9 And I am saying to you, be requesting, and it shall be given to you; be seeking, and you shall be finding; be knocking, and it shall be opened up to you. 10 For everyone requesting, is getting, and the one seeking, is finding, and to the one knocking, it shall be opened up. 11 Out of you, yet, some son shall be requesting a fish of his father. Shall he be giving him a serpent in a stead of a fish? 12 Or also, he shall be requesting an egg. Shall he be giving to him a scorpion? 13 If you, then, inhering as wicked, have perceived to be giving good gifts to your offspring, how much rather shall your Father out of heaven be giving holy spirit to the ones requesting of him?” 14 And he was casting out a demon, and it was a mute one. Of the demon coming out, yet, it became that the mute man speaks, and the throngs marvel. 15 And some out of them said, “It is in Beelzeboul, the chief of the demons, that he is casting out the demons!” 16 Yet others, trying him, sought from him a sign out of heaven. 17 He, yet, having perceived their comprehension effects, said to them, “Every kingdom being divided on itself is being desolated, and a house on a house is falling. 18 Yet if the Satan also is divided on himself, how shall his kingdom be standing, it being that you are saying I am, ‘casting out the demons in Beelzeboul’? 19 Yet if it is in Beelzeboul that I am casting out the demons, in whom are your sons casting them out? Because of this, they shall be judges of you. 20 Yet if it is in a finger of Placer that I am casting out the demons, the Placer’s kingdom consequently outstrips on you. 21 Whenever the strong one, having been armed, may be guarding his courtyard, his belongings are in peace. 22 Yet if ever a stronger than he, coming on, may be conquering him, he is lifting his panoply on which he had confidence, and is distributing his spoils. 23 The one being not with me, is against me, and the one not gathering with me, is scattering. 24 Whenever the unclean spirit is coming out from the human, it is coming through unwet places, seeking relaxation and not finding it. Then it is saying, ‘I shall be returning into my house whence I came out.’ 25 And coming, it is finding it swept and adorned. 26 Then it is going and getting seven other spirits more wicked than itself, and entering, is dwelling there. And the last things of that human are becoming worse than the first.” 27 It became, yet, in his saying these things, some woman out of the throng, lifting up her voice, said to him, “Happy is the belly bearing you, and the breasts which you suckle!” 28 He, yet, said, “Indeed, then, happy are the ones hearing the Placer’s word, and guarding it.” 29 Yet of the throngs being convened on him, he begins to be saying, “This generation is a wicked generation. It is seeking a sign, and a sign shall not be given to it, except the sign of Jonah. 30 For down as Jonah became a sign to the Ninevites, thus also shall the son of the human be to this generation. 31 The queen of the south shall be roused in the judgment with the men of this generation, and shall be condemning them, it being that she came out of the ends of the land to hear the wisdom of Solomon, and be perceiving, more than Solomon is here. 32 Men, Ninevites, shall be rising in the judgment with this generation, and they shall be condemning it, it being that they repent into the proclamation of Jonah, and be perceiving, more than Jonah is here. 33 No one, touch-lighting a lamp, is placing it into hiding, but on the lampstand, that the ones entering may be observing the light. 34 The lamp of the body is your eye. Whenever your eye is single, your whole body also is luminous. Yet if it is ever wicked, your body also is dark. 35 Be noting, then, that the light in you is not darkness. 36 If your whole body is luminous, then, having no dark part, the whole shall be luminous, as whenever the lamp may be illuminating you in its gleaming.” 37 In his speaking, yet, a Pharisee is asking him, which is how he may be lunching with him. Entering, yet, he leans back. 38 Yet the Pharisee marvels, perceiving that he is not first immersed before the lunch. 39 Yet the Master said toward him, “Now you, the Pharisees, are cleansing the outside of the cup and the platter, yet the inside of you is replete of snatching and of wickedness. 40 Foolish ones, does the one making the outside not also make the inside? 41 However, be giving the things within as alms, and be perceiving, all is clean to you. 42 But woe to you, the Pharisees, it being that you are tithing from the mint, and the rue, and every green, and you are passing by the judgment and the love of the Placer. Yet these it was a must to do, and those not to be present. 43 Woe to you, the Pharisees, it being that you are loving the foremost seat in the gathering places, and the greetings in the market places. 44 Woe to you, it being that you are as the unevident tombs, and the humans walking upon them have not perceived it.” 45 Answering, yet, one of the law experts is saying to him, “Teacher, saying these things, you are outraging us also.” 46 Yet he said, “Woe to you also, the law experts, it being that you are loading the humans with loads hard to bear, and you yourselves are not touching the loads with one of your fingers. 47 Woe to you, it being that you are building the tombs of the prophets, yet your fathers kill them. 48 Consequently you are testifiers, and are delighting together with the works of your fathers, it being that they indeed kill them, yet you are building. 49 And because of this, the Placer’s wisdom said, ‘I shall be commissioning into them prophets and commissioners, and ones out of them, they shall be killing and persecuting,’ 50 that the blood of all the prophets, being poured out from the casting down of a world, may be sought out from this generation. 51 From blood of Abel, till blood of Zacharias, the one being destroyed between the altar and the house, yes, I am saying to you, it shall be sought out from this generation. 52 Woe to you, the law experts, it being that you lift the key of the knowledge. You yourselves do not enter, and the ones entering, you forbid.” 53 And of him coming out thence, the writers and the Pharisees begin to be dreadfully having him in and quizzing him about more things, 54 ambushing him to pounce on something out of his mouth.
Chapter 12
1 In which, ten thousand of the throng being gathered together on him, as besides, to be trampling one another, he begins to be saying toward his learners, “First be heeding to yourselves, from the ferment which is the hypocrisy of the Pharisees. 2 Yet there is nothing having been covered, which shall not be revealed, and hidden, which shall not be known, 3 in a stead of which, as much as you say in the darkness, shall be heard in the light, and what you speak toward the ear in the storerooms, shall be proclaimed on the housetops. 4 Yet I am saying to you, my friends, do not be fearing from the ones killing the body, and after these things, not having anything more abundant to do. 5 Yet I shall be intimating to you whom to be fearing; be fearing the one who, after the killing, is having authority to be casting into the Gehenna. Yes, I am saying to you, be fearing this one. 6 Are not five sparrows being sold of two assarions? And not one out of them is forgotten in the sight of the Placer. 7 But also, the hairs of your head have all been numbered. Do not be fearing; you are excelling many sparrows. 8 I am yet saying to you, everyone, whoever is avowing in me, in front of the humans, the son of the human shall also be avowing in him, in front of the Placer’s messengers. 9 Yet the one disowning me in the sight of the humans, shall be renounced in the sight of the Placer’s messengers. 10 And everyone who shall be declaring a word into the son of the human, it shall be forgiven him. Yet the one calumniating into the holy spirit, shall not be forgiven. 11 Yet whenever they may be carrying you into the gathering places, and on the chiefs and authorities, you should not be anxious of how or what you should be defending, or of what you may be saying. 12 For the holy spirit shall be teaching you, in the same hour, what is a must to be saying.” 13 Someone out of the throng, yet, said to him, “Teacher, be saying to my brother, to part the allotment enjoyment with me.” 14 Yet he said to him, “Human, who constitutes me a judge or parter on you?” 15 He said, yet, toward them, “Be seeing, and be guarding from every greed, it being that one’s life is not in the abundance of his belongings.” 16 He yet said a parable toward them, saying, “The country of some rich human bears well, 17 and he reasoned in himself, saying, ‘What shall I be doing, it being that I am having nowhere to be gathering my fruits?’ 18 And he said, ‘I shall be doing this, I shall be lifting down my barns and building greater ones, and there I shall be gathering all my grain and goods. 19 And I shall be declaring to my soul, ‘Soul, you are having many goods lying into many years; be relaxing, be eating, be drinking, be glad.’ ‘ 20 Yet the Placer said to him, ‘Foolish one, in this night they are requesting from you your soul. What you make ready, yet, whose shall it be?’ 21 Thus is the one storing to himself, and not being rich into Placer.” 22 Toward his learners, yet, he said, “Because of this, I am saying to you, do not be anxious as to the soul, what you may be eating, nor to the body, what you should be slipping into. 23 For the soul is more than the nurture, and the body, than the apparel. 24 Consider the ravens, it being that they are not sowing, neither are they reaping, to which there is not a storeroom, nor a barn, and the Placer is nurturing them. How much rather excelling are you than the flyers? 25 Who out of you, yet, being anxious, is able to add a cubit on his prime? 26 Yet if you are not able, then, for a most inferior thing, why are you being anxious about the rest? 27 Consider the anemones, how they are growing up. They are not toiling, neither spinning, yet I am saying to you, Solomon in all his glory was not clothed as one of these. 28 Yet if the Placer is thus enveloping the fodder in a field, it being today, and tomorrow cast into a stove, how much rather you, slightly believing ones? 29 And you, do not be seeking what you may be eating, and what you may be drinking, and do not be in suspense. 30 For all the nations of the world are seeking these things. Yet your Father has perceived that you are needing of these things. 31 However, be seeking his kingdom, and these things shall be added to you. 32 Do not be fearing, little flocklet, it being that your Father delights to give you the kingdom. 33 Sell your belongings and be giving alms. Make to yourselves purses which are not being made old, an undefaulted store in the heavens, where a thief is not nearing, neither is a moth causing decay. 34 For where your store is, there also shall your heart be. 35 Let your loins be girded about, and your lamps be burning. 36 And be like humans toward receiving their master, when he may be breaking loose out of the marriage celebrations, that of him coming and knocking, they may immediately be opening up to him. 37 Happy are those slaves whom, coming, the master shall be finding watching. Amen, I am saying to you, that he shall be girding himself about, and shall be reclining them. And coming by, he shall be serving them. 38 And if he is coming in the second, and if in the third guard, and is finding them thus, happy are those. 39 You are knowing this, yet, that if the house owner had perceived which hour the thief is coming, he would not let his house be tunneled into. 40 You also, become ready, it being that the son of the human is coming in an hour which you are not supposing.” 41 The Peter, yet, said, “Master, are you saying this parable toward us, or also toward all?” 42 And the Master said, “Who, consequently, is the faithful and disposed administrator, whom the master shall be constituting on his cure, to be giving the grain measure in season? 43 Happy is that slave whom, coming, his master shall be finding doing thus. 44 Truly I am saying to you, that he shall be constituting him on all his belongings. 45 Yet if that slave is saying in his heart, ‘My master is delaying to be coming,’ and is beginning to be beating the boys and the maids, besides to be eating and drinking and being drunk, 46 the master of that slave shall be arriving in a day which he is not knowing, and shall be cutting him asunder, and shall be placing his part with the unfaithful ones. 47 That slave, yet, the one knowing the will effect of his master and not making ready or doing toward his will effect, shall have many lashes. 48 Yet the one not knowing, yet doing things worthy of blows, shall have few lashes. Yet to everyone to whom much was given, much shall be sought from him. And to whom they placed much, of him they shall be requesting more abundantly. 49 I came to be casting fire on the land, and what I am willing is, if it were already touch-lighted. 50 Yet I am having an immersion to be immersed into, and how I am pressed, till it may be consummated! 51 You are supposing that I came along to give peace in the land; it is not so, I am saying to you, but division rather. 52 For from the now, five in one house shall be divided, three on two and two on three. 53 Father shall be divided on son, and son on father, mother on the daughter, and daughter on the mother, mother-in-law on her bride, and bride on the mother-in-law.” 54 Yet also to the throngs he said, “Whenever you are perceiving a cloud rising on west, immediately you are saying that a rainstorm is coming, and thus is it becoming. 55 And whenever a south wind is blowing, you are saying that there shall be a burning, and it is becoming. 56 Hypocrites, you have perceived to be proving the face of the land and of the heaven, yet you have not perceived how to be proving this season. 57 Yet why, and from yourselves, are you not judging the just thing? 58 For as you are going away on a chief with your plaintiff, in the way, be giving work to be cleared from him, lest at some time he be dragging you down toward the judge, and the judge shall be giving you over to the sheriff, and the sheriff shall be casting you into jail. 59 I am saying to you, by no means may you be coming out thence, till you are rendering the last lepton.”
Chapter 13
1 Some were present in the same season, yet, reporting to him about the Galileans whose blood Pilate mixes with their sacrifices. 2 And answering, he said to them, “Are you supposing that these Galileans became sinners beyond all the Galileans, it being that they have suffered these things? 3 Not so, I am saying to you, but if you are not repenting, you shall all likewise be destroyed. 4 Or those eighteen on whom the tower in the Siloam falls and kills them, are you supposing that they became debtors beyond all the humans indwelling Jerusalem? 5 Not so, I am saying to you, but if you are not repenting, you shall all be destroyed similarly.” 6 He yet said this parable: “Someone had a fig tree having been planted in his vineyard, and he came seeking fruit in it, and did not find any. 7 He said toward the grapevine worker, yet, ‘Be perceiving, there are three years from which I am coming, seeking fruit in this fig tree, and I am not finding any. Strike it out, then. Why be also nullifying the land?’ 8 Answering, yet, he is saying to him, ‘Master, let it be this year also, till I shall be digging about it and casting manure. 9 And if so, it may indeed be producing fruit into the year about to be. Yet if not, you shall surely be striking it out.’ ” 10 He was teaching, yet, in one of the gathering places in the sabbaths. 11 And be perceiving, there was a woman having a spirit of weakness eighteen years, and she was bending together, and not able to bend up into all the consummation. 12 Perceiving her, yet, the Jesus voices toward her and said to her, “Woman, you have been loosed from your weakness.” 13 And he places his hands on her, and she was instantly made upright, and she glorified the Placer. 14 Answering, yet, the chief of the gathering place, resenting that the Jesus cures in the sabbath, said to the throng that, “There are six days in which it is a must to be working in them. Be coming to be cured in them, then, and not in the day of the sabbath.” 15 Yet the Master answered him and said, “Hypocrites, each of you in the sabbath, is he not loosing his ox or ass from the manger, and leading it away, giving it a drink? 16 Yet this one, being a daughter of Abraham, whom the Satan binds, be perceiving, eighteen years, was it not a must for her to be loosed from this bond in the day of the sabbath?” 17 And of him saying these things, all the ones opposing him were shamed. And all the throng had joy on all the glorious things becoming by him. 18 He said, then, “To what is the Placer’s kingdom like, and to what shall I be likening it? 19 It is like a kernel of mustard which, getting, a human casts into his garden. And it grows, and became into a tree. And the flyers of the heaven roost among its boughs.” 20 And again he said, “To what shall I be likening the Placer’s kingdom? 21 It is like ferment which, getting, a woman hides into three seahs of meal, till the whole was fermented.” 22 And he went through, down cities and villages, teaching and going, making into Jerusalem. 23 Someone, yet, said to him, “Master, are few being saved?” He said, yet, toward them, 24 “Be contending to be entering through the cramped door, it being that many, I am saying to you, shall be seeking to be entering, and they shall not be strong enough, 25 from which time the house owner is being roused and is locking the door, and you are beginning to have stood outside and knocking on the door, saying, ‘Master, open up to us!’ And answering, he shall be declaring to you, ‘I have not perceived you, whence are you?’ 26 Then, should you be begin to be saying, ‘We ate and drank in your sight, and you teach in our broad areas,’ 27 he shall also be declaring, saying to you, ‘I have not perceived you. Whence are you? Be withdrawing from me, all you workers of unjustness.’ 28 There shall be the lamenting and the gnashing of the teeth, whenever you may be seeing Abraham and Issac and Jacob and all the prophets in the Placer’s kingdom, yet you being cast outside. 29 And they shall be arriving from east and west, and from north and south, and they shall be reclined in the Placer’s kingdom. 30 And be perceiving, they who are last, shall be first, and they who are first, shall be last.” 31 In the same hour, some Pharisees came toward him, saying to him, “Be coming out and be going, it being that Herod is willing to kill you.” 32 And he said, “Being gone, say to this jackal, ‘Be perceiving, I am casting out demons and consummating healings today and tomorrow, and in the third day, I am being consummated.’ 33 However, it is a must for me, having to be going today and tomorrow and the third day, it being that it is not credible for a prophet to be destroyed outside of Jerusalem. 34 Jerusalem, Jerusalem, the one killing the prophets and stoning the ones having been commissioned toward her! How many times I will to gather your offspring, in which manner a bird, her young under her wings, and you do not will it! 35 Be perceiving, your house is being left to you. Yet I am saying to you, by no means may you be perceiving me, till it shall be arriving that you are saying, ‘Blessed is the one coming in the name of Master.’ ”
Chapter 14
1 And it became in a sabbath, in his coming into a house of one of the chiefs of the Pharisees to be eating bread, they were also scrutinizing him. 2 And be perceiving, some human in front of him had edema. 3 And answering, the Jesus said toward the law experts and Pharisees, saying, “Is it allowed in the sabbath to cure, or not?” 4 They, yet, were being quiet. And getting him, he heals him, and dismisses him. 5 And he said toward them, “Of you, whose son or ox shall be falling into a well, and he shall not immediately be pulling him up in a day of the sabbath?” 6 And they are not strong enough to answer back toward these things. 7 Toward the ones having been called, yet, he said a parable attending to how they chose the foremost reclining places, saying toward them, 8 “Whenever you may be called by someone into marriage celebrations, may you not be reclined into the foremost reclining place, lest at some time there may be one more honored than you having been called by him, 9 and coming, the one calling you and him shall be declaring to you, ‘Be giving place to this one.’ And then with shame you may begin to be retaining the last place. 10 But whenever you may be called, being gone, lean back into the last place, that whenever the one having called you may be coming, he shall be declaring to you, ‘Friend, be stepping further up.’ Then there shall be glory to you in the sight of all the ones lying back together with you, 11 it being that every one heightening himself, shall be made low, and the one making himself low, shall be heightened.” 12 Yet he also said to the one having called him, “Whenever you may be making a lunch or dinner, do not be voicing for your friends, nor your brothers, nor your relatives, nor your rich neighbors, lest at some time they also may be calling you back, and it may become a repayment to you. 13 But whenever you may be making a reception, be calling poor ones, cripples, lame ones, blind ones, 14 and you shall be happy, it being that they are having nothing to repay you, for you shall be repaid in the resurrection of the just ones.” 15 Hearing these things, yet, one of the ones lying back together said to him, “Happy is anyone who shall eating bread in the Placer’s kingdom!” 16 He said, yet, to him, “Some human made a great dinner, and calls many. 17 And in the hour of the dinner he commissions his slave to be saying to the ones having been called, ‘Be coming, it being that it is already ready!’ 18 And from one, they all begin to be refusing. The first said to him, ‘I buy a field, and I am having necessity, coming out, to be perceiving it. I am asking you, be having me refused.’ 19 And a different one said, ‘I buy five yoke of oxen, and I am going to prove them. I am asking you, be having me refused.’ 20 And a different one said, ‘I marry a woman, and because of this, I am not able to be coming.’ 21 And coming along, the slave reports these things to his master. Then being indignant, the house owner said to his slave, ‘Be coming out swiftly into the broad areas and streets of the city, and lead into here the poor ones, and cripples, and blind ones, and lame ones.’ 22 And the slave said, ‘Master, the thing which you enjoin has become, and there is still place.’ 23 And the master said toward the slave, ‘Be coming out into the ways and barriers, and necessitate ones to be entering, that my house may be made replete. 24 For I am saying to you, that not one of those men having been called shall be tasting of my dinner.’ ” 25 Vast throngs went together with him, yet, and being turned, he said toward them, 26 “If anyone is coming toward me, and is not hating his father, and mother, and woman, and offspring, and brothers, and sisters, besides still, his soul also, he is not able to be a learner of me. 27 Anyone who is not bearing his pole and coming behind me, is not able to be a learner of me. 28 For who out of you, willing to build a tower, is not first being seated, calculating the expense, checking if he is having equipment into it, 29 lest at some time, placing its foundation, and not being strong enough to consummate, all the ones beholding may begin to scoff him, 30 saying that, ‘This human begins to be building, and is not strong enough to consummate.’ 31 Or any king, going to a different king to be casting together into battle, is he not first being seated, counselling if he is able in ten thousand, to meet the one coming on him with twenty thousand? 32 Yet if not, surely, of him being still forward*, commissioning an embassy, he is asking for the things toward peace. 33 Thus, then, every one out of you who is not setting out from all his belongings, is not able to be a learner of me. 34 The salt is ideal, then. Yet if the salt also is made insipid, in what shall it be seasoned? 35 It is fit neither into land, nor into manure. They are casting it outside. The one having ears to be hearing, let him be hearing.”
*at a distance
Chapter 15
1 Nearing him, yet, were all the tribute collectors and the sinners, to be hearing him. 2 And the Pharisees as well as the writers grumbled, saying that, “This one is toward receiving sinners, and is eating together with them.” 3 Yet he said this parable toward them, saying, 4 “What human out of you, having a hundred sheep, and out of them destroying* one, is not leaving the ninety-nine in the desolate region, and going on the destroyed one, till he may be finding it? 5 And finding it, he is placing it on his shoulders, having joy. 6 And coming into the house, he is calling together the friends and the neighbors, saying to them, ‘Be having joy together with me, it being that I found my sheep, the one having been destroyed!’ 7 I am saying to you, that there shall be joy thus in the heaven, on one sinner repenting, more than on ninety-nine just ones who are not having need of repentance. 8 Or what woman having ten drachmas, if she is ever destroying* one drachma, is not touch-lighting a lamp, and sweeping the house, and seeking carefully, till she may be finding it? 9 And finding it, she is calling together the friends and neighbors, saying, ‘Be having joy together with me, it being that I found the drachma which I destroy!’ 10 Thus, I am saying to you, there is joy becoming in the sight of the Placer’s messengers, on one sinner repenting.” 11 He yet said, “Some human had two sons, 12 and the younger of them said to the father, ‘Father, be giving to me the accruing part of the estate.’ He, yet, apportioned to them the livelihood. 13 And after not many days, gathering it all, the younger son travels into a far country. And there he scatters his estate, living profligately. 14 Of him spending it all, yet, there became a strong famine down that country, and he begins to be deficient. 15 And being gone, he was joined to one of the citizens of that country, and he sends him into his fields to be grazing hogs. 16 And he desired to be satisfied out of the little carob pods which the hogs ate, and no one gave to him. 17 Coming into himself, yet, he avers, ‘How many hired ones of my father are abounded of breads? Yet here I am being destroyed in famine. 18 Rising, I shall be going toward my father, and I shall be declaring toward him, ‘Father, I sinned, into the heaven, and in your sight. 19 I am not still worthy to be called a son of you. Make me as one of your hired ones.’ ‘ 20 And rising, he came toward his father. Of him still having himself far from him, yet, his father perceived him, and is having bowels of compassion. And running, he falls on his neck and kisses him. 21 The son, yet, said to him, ‘Father, I sinned, into the heaven, and in your sight. I am not still worthy to be called a son of you.’ 22 Yet the father said toward his slaves, ‘Swiftly, carry out the foremost robe and slip him into it, and be giving him a ring into his hand, and sandals into his feet. 23 And be carrying the grained cattle. Sacrifice it, and eating, we may be gladdened, 24 it being that this son of me was dead, and lives, was destroyed, and was found!’ And they begin to be glad. 25 His senior son, yet, was in a field, and coming, as he nears the house, he hears music and chorus. 26 And calling one of the boys toward him, he ascertained what these things may be. 27 He, yet, said to him that, ‘Your brother is arriving, and your father sacrifices the grained cattle, it being that he got him back healthy.’ 28 He, yet, is indignant, and did not will to be entering. His father, yet, coming out, entreated him. 29 Yet answering, he said to his father, ‘Be perceiving, so many years I am slaving to you, and I never passed by a precept of you. And to me, you never give a kid, that I may be gladdened with my friends. 30 Yet when this son of you came, the one devouring your livelihood with prostitutes, you sacrifice with him the grained cattle!’ 31 Yet he said to him, ‘Offspring, you are always with me, and all the things mine are yours. 32 Yet it was a must to be gladdened and have joy, it being that this brother of you was dead, and lives, and being destroyed, was found.’ ”
Chapter 16
1 Yet also, toward the learners he said, “Some human was rich, who had an administrator, and this one was slandered to him as scattering his belongings. 2 And voicing for him, he said to him, ‘What is this I am hearing about you? Be rendering the word of your administration. For you may not be able to still be administrator.’ 3 In himself, yet, the administrator said, ‘What shall I be doing, it being that my master shall be lifting the administration from me? I am not strong enough to be digging. I am ashamed to be requesting. 4 I knew what I shall be doing, that whenever I may be transposed out of the administration, they may be receiving me into their houses.’ 5 And calling toward him each one of his master’s debtors, he said to the first, ‘How much are you owing my master?’ 6 He, yet, said, ‘A hundred baths of olive oil.’ He, yet, said to him, ‘Receive your writings, and being seated, swiftly write fifty.’ 7 Thereafter, to a different one he said, ‘Yet you, how much are you owing?’ He, yet, said, ‘A hundred cors of grain.’ He is saying to him, ‘Receive your writings, and write eighty.’ 8 And the master praises the administrator of the unjustness, it being that he does disposedly, it being that the sons of this duration are more disposed, above the sons of the light, into their generation. 9 And I am saying to you, make friends to yourselves, out of the mammon of the unjustness, that whenever it may be defaulting, they may be receiving you into the durative tents. 10 The one faithful in a least thing, is also faithful in many things. 11 If, then, you did not become faithful in the unjust mammon, who shall be entrusting to you the true? 12 And if you did not become faithful in the other one, who shall be giving to you the thing which is yours? 13 No domestic slave is able to be slaving to two masters. For he shall be either hating the one, and loving the other, or he shall be upholding of one, and despising the other. You are not able to be slaving to Placer and to mammon.” 14 The Pharisees, yet, inherently fond of silver, heard all these things, and they sneered him. 15 And he said to them, “You are the ones justifying yourselves in the sight of the humans, yet the Placer is knowing your hearts, it being that the things high among the humans, are an abomination in the Placer’s sight. 16 The law and the prophets are, unto John. From then, the Placer’s kingdom is being brought as a good message, and every one is forcing into it. 17 Yet it is easier for the heaven and the land to be passing by, than for one serif of the law to be falling. 18 Everyone dismissing his woman and marrying a different one, is committing adultery. And the one marrying one dismissed from a man, is committing adultery. 19 Some human was rich, yet, and was slipped into purple and cotton, being shiningly gladdened day by day. 20 Yet some poor one, Lazarus in name, had been cast toward his gate, having been ulcerated, 21 and desiring to be satisfied from the things falling from the table of the rich one. But the dogs also, coming, licked on his ulcers. 22 It became, yet, for the poor one to be dying, and to be carried away by the messengers into Abraham’s bosom. Yet the rich one also died and was entombed. 23 And in the unperceived, lifting up his eyes, inhering in ordeals, he is seeing Abraham from afar, and Lazarus in his bosoms. 24 And voicing, he said, ‘Father Abraham, be merciful to me and send Lazarus, that he may be immersing the extremity of his finger in water, and cooling down my tongue, it being that I am being pained in this blaze!’ 25 Yet Abraham said, ‘Offspring, be reminded that you got your good things in your life, and Lazarus likewise, the evil things. Yet now here, he is being consoled, yet you are being pained. 26 And in all these things, between us and you, a great gap has been established, which is how the ones hence, willing to step through toward you, may not be able, nor may ones thence, be ferrying toward us.’ 27 He said, yet, ‘I am asking you, then, father, that you may be sending him into my father’s house, 28 for I am having five brothers, which is how he may be testifying to them, that they also may not be coming into this place of the ordeals.’ 29 Yet Abraham is saying, ‘They are having Moses and the prophets. Let them hear them.’ 30 Yet he said, ‘No, father Abraham, but if someone from dead ones may be gone toward them, they shall be repenting!’ 31 Yet he said to him, ‘If they are not hearing Moses and the prophets, neither shall they be persuaded if someone is rising out of dead ones.’ ”
Chapter 17
1 Yet toward his learners he said, “It is unreceivable for the snares to not be coming. However, woe to him through whom they are coming! 2 It is more advantageous to him, if a millstone is lying about his neck and he has been tossed into the sea, than that he should be snaring one of these little ones. 3 Be heeding to yourselves! If your brother is ever sinning, rebuke him, and if he is repenting, forgive him. 4 And if he is sinning into you seven times of the day, and seven times is turning back toward you, saying, ‘I am repenting,’ you shall be forgiving him.” 5 And the commissioners say to the Master, “Add to us belief!” 6 The Master yet said, “If you are having belief as a kernel of mustard, you would say to this black mulberry, ‘Be rooted out and planted in the sea,’ and it would obey you. 7 Who out of you, yet, having a slave plowing or shepherding, who is entering out of the field, shall be declaring to him, ‘Immediately coming by, lean back’? 8 But shall he not be declaring to him, ‘Make something ready, that I may be dining, and being girded about, be serving me till I am eating and drinking, and after these things, you shall be eating and drinking’? 9 Is that slave having grace*, it being that he does the thing being prescribed? 10 Thus also you, when you are doing all the things being prescribed, be saying that, ‘We are useless slaves. We have done what we owed to do.’ ” 11 And it became, in his going into Jerusalem, he also passed through the midst of Samaria and Galilee. 12 And of him coming into some village, ten lepers meet him, men, who stand at a distance. 13 And they lift a voice, saying, “Jesus, adept one, be merciful to us!” 14 And perceiving it, he said to them, “Being gone, show yourselves to the priests.” And it became in their going away, they are cleansed. 15 One out of them, yet, perceiving that he was healed, returns with a great voice, glorifying the Placer. 16 And he falls on his face, beside his feet, thanking him. And he was a Samaritan. 17 Answering, yet, the Jesus said, “Are not the ten cleansed? Yet where are the nine? 18 Were none found returning to give glory to the Placer, except this foreigner?” 19 And he said to him, “Rising, be going. Your belief has saved you.” 20 Being inquired of by the Pharisees, yet, as to when the Placer’s kingdom is coming, he answered and said to them, “The Placer’s kingdom is not coming with scrutiny. 21 Neither shall they be declaring, ‘Be perceiving, it is here,’ or ‘There.’ For be perceiving, the Placer’s kingdom is inside of you.” 22 He said toward the learners, yet, “Days shall be coming when you shall be desiring to be perceiving one of the days of the son of the human, and you shall not be seeing it. 23 And they shall be declaring to you, ‘Be perceiving, it is there,’ or ‘Be perceiving, it is here.’ You may not be coming away, nor should you be pursuing it. 24 For even as the lightning is shining, flashing out from under the heaven, into under the heaven, thus shall the son of the human be in his day. 25 Yet first it is a must for him to be suffering much, and to be rejected from this generation. 26 And down as it became in the days of Noah, thus shall it be also in the days of the son of the human. 27 They ate, they drank, they married, they gave to marriage, until which day Noah entered into the ark, and the deluge came, and destroys them all. 28 Likewise, down as it became in the days of Lot, they ate, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they built. 29 Yet in which day Lot came out from Sodom, fire and sulphur rains from heaven, and destroys them all. 30 It shall be down the same, in which day the son of the human is being revealed. 31 In that day, one who shall be on the housetop, and his utensils in the house, let him not be stepping down to lift them. And the one in the field likewise, let him not turn back into the things behind. 32 Be remembering Lot’s woman. 33 Whoever may be seeking to procure his soul, shall be destroying it. Yet whoever may be destroying it, shall be causing it to live. 34 I am saying to you, in this night, there shall be two on one couch; the one shall be taken along, and the other shall be let be. 35 Two shall be grinding on the same place; the one shall be taken along, yet the other shall be let be.” 36 (nothing here in this version) 37 And answering, they are saying to him, “Where, Master?” He yet said to them, “Where the body is, there also shall the vultures be gathered.”
Chapter 18
1 He yet said to them a parable, toward the must for them to be praying always, and to be not despondent, 2 saying, “Some judge in some city was not fearing the Placer, and was not abashed by a human. 3 There was a widow in that city, yet, and she came toward him, saying, ‘Avenge me from my plaintiff!’ 4 And he did not will it, on a time. Yet after these things, he said in himself, ‘And if I am not fearing the Placer, neither am I being abashed by a human, 5 surely because of this widow tendering toil to me, I shall be avenging her, that she may not belabor me into a consummation!’ ” 6 The Master yet said, “Hear what the judge of the unjustness is saying. 7 Yet should the Placer by no means be doing the avenging of his chosen ones, the ones imploring him day and night, he being also patient on them? 8 I am saying to you, that he shall be doing their avenging in swiftness. However, coming, shall the son of the human consequently be finding the belief on the land?” 9 Yet he also said this parable toward some of the ones having confidence on themselves, that they are just, and are scorning the rest: 10 “Two humans stepped up into the sacred place to pray, one a Pharisee and the other a tribute collector. 11 Standing, the Pharisee prayed, ‘Placer, I am thanking you that I am not even as the rest of the humans, they being snatchers, unjust, adulterers, or also as this tribute collector. 12 I am fasting twice of the sabbath; I am tithing from all, as much as I am acquiring.’ 13 Yet the tribute collector, having stood afar, did not will, yet, to lift up his eyes into the heaven, but beat his chest, saying, ‘Placer, be propitiated to me, the sinner!’ 14 I am saying to you, this one, beyond that one, stepped down into his house justified, it being that everyone heightening himself, shall be made low, yet the one making himself low, shall be heightened.” 15 Yet they also carried toward him the babes, that he may be touching them. Yet perceiving it, the learners rebuked them. 16 Yet the Jesus called them toward him, saying, “Let the little children be coming toward me, and do not be forbidding them, for the Placer’s kingdom is of the such. 17 Amen, I am saying to you, whoever is not receiving the Placer’s kingdom as a little child, may by no means be entering it.” 18 And some chief inquires of him, saying, “Good teacher, doing what, may I be enjoying an allotment of durative life?” 19 The Jesus, yet, said to him, “Why are you saying I am good? No one is good except one, the Placer. 20 You have perceived the precepts: ‘You should not be committing adultery; you should not be murdering; you should not be stealing; you should not be testifying falsely; be honoring your father and mother.’ ” 21 He, yet, said, “Out of youth, I guard all these things.” 22 Hearing him, yet, the Jesus said to him, “Still one thing is lacking to you. Sell all, as much as you are having, and be giving to poor ones, and you shall be having a store in the heavens. And hither, be following me.” 23 The one hearing these things, yet, became sorrowful, for he was tremendously rich. 24 Perceiving him becoming sorrowful, yet, the Jesus said, “How squeamishly the ones having the monies are entering into the Placer’s kingdom! 25 For it is easier for a camel to be entering through a bore of a bodkin, than for a rich one to be entering into the Placer’s kingdom.” 26 The ones hearing it, yet, say, “And who is able to be saved?” 27 He yet said, “The things impossible with humans, are possible with the Placer.” 28 The Peter yet said, “Be perceiving, we, leaving our own things, follow you.” 29 He yet said to them, “Amen, I am saying to you, that there is no one who leaves house, or woman, or brothers, or parents, or offspring, on account of the Placer’s kingdom, 30 who may by all means not be getting back manyfold in this season, and in the coming duration, durative life.” 31 Getting the twelve, yet, he said toward them, “Be perceiving, we are stepping up into Jerusalem, and all the things having been written through the prophets about the son of the human shall be consummated. 32 For he shall be given over to the nations, and scoffed, and treated outrageously, and spat into. 33 And scourging him, they shall be killing him; and in the third day, he shall be rising.” 34 And they understand not one of these things, and this declaration was hid from them. They did not know the thing being said. 35 It became, yet, in his nearing into Jericho, some blind one sat beside the way, mendicating. 36 Hearing a throng going through, yet, he ascertained what this may be. 37 They report to him, yet, that Jesus the Nazarene is passing by. 38 And he implores, saying, “Jesus, son of David, be merciful to me!” 39 And the preceding ones rebuked him, that he should be hushing. Yet he much rather cried, “Son of David, be merciful to me!” 40 Standing, yet, the Jesus orders for him to be led toward him. Of him nearing, yet, he inquires of him, 41 “What are you willing I shall be doing to you?” He, yet, said, “Master, that I may be looking up!” 42 And the Jesus said to him, “Look up; your belief has saved you.” 43 And instantly he looks up, and followed him, glorifying the Placer. And all the people perceiving it, give praise to the Placer.
Chapter 19
1 And entering, he came through the Jericho. 2 And be perceiving, there was a man called Zaccheus in name, and he was a chief tribute collector, and he was rich. 3 And he sought to be perceiving who the Jesus is, and he was not able, from the throng, it being that he was little in the prime. 4 And running before, into the front, he stepped up on a fig mulberry, that he may be perceiving him, it being that he was about to be coming through that place. 5 And as the Jesus came on the place, looking up, he said toward him, “Zaccheus, being diligent, step down, for today it is a must for me to remain in your house.” 6 And being diligent, he stepped down and entertains him, having joy. 7 And perceiving it, all grumbled, saying that, “He entered with a sinner man to loose-down.” 8 Yet being stood, Zaccheus said toward the Master, “Be perceiving, I am giving half of my belongings to the poor, and if I blackmail anything of anyone, I am rendering quadruple.” 9 The Jesus, yet, said toward him, “Today, salvation became to this house, down that he also is a son of Abraham. 10 For the son of the human came to seek and to save the destroyed one.” 11 Of them hearing these things, yet, adding, he said a parable, because of his being near Jerusalem, and they are supposing that the Placer’s kingdom is about to be appearing instantly. 12 He said, then, “Some well-generated human was gone into a far country, to be getting a kingdom to himself, and to return. 13 Calling ten slaves of himself, yet, he gives to them ten minas, and said toward them, ‘Practice business while I am coming.’ 14 His citizens, yet, hated him, and they commission an embassy behind him, saying, ‘We are not willing for this one to reign on us.’ 15 And it became in his coming back, getting the kingdom, he also said for these slaves to be voiced to him, to whom he had given the silver, that he may be knowing what they practice. 16 The first came along, yet, saying, ‘Master, your mina works toward ten minas.’ 17 And he said to him, ‘Surely well, good slave, it being that you became faithful in a least thing, be having authority upon ten cities.’ 18 And the second came, saying, ‘Master, your mina makes five minas.’ 19 And he said yet to this one, ‘And you, become upon five cities.’ 20 And the other came saying, ‘Master, be perceiving your mina, which I had reserved in a handkerchief. 21 For I feared you, it being that you are a stringent human, lifting what you do not place, and reaping what you do not sow.’ 22 He is saying to him, ‘Out of your mouth shall I be judging you, wicked slave. You had perceived that I am a stringent human, lifting what I do not place, and reaping what I do not sow? 23 Wherefore do you not also give my silver onto a bank, and coming, I would practice with it, together with interest?’ 24 And to the ones having stood by, he said, ‘Lift the mina from him, and be giving it to the one having the ten minas.’ 25 And they say to him, ‘Master, he is having ten minas.’ 26 I am saying to you, that to every one having, it shall be given. Yet from the one not having, what he is having shall also be lifted. 27 ‘However, these enemies of me, the ones not willing for me to reign on them, be leading them here and slay them in front of me.’ ” 28 And saying these things, he went in front, stepping up into Jerusalem. 29 And it became, as he nears into Bethphage and Bethany, toward the mountain called Olives, he commissions two of the learners, 30 saying, “Be going away into the village facing you, in which entering, you shall be finding a colt bound, one on which no one of humans has ever been seated. And loosing it, be leading it. 31 And if anyone may be asking you, ‘Wherefore are you loosing it?’ you shall be declaring thus, that, ‘The Master is having need of it.’ ” 32 Coming away, yet, the ones having been commissioned found it down as he said to them. 33 Of them loosing the colt, yet, its masters say toward them, ‘Why are you loosing the colt?’ 34 They, yet, say, ‘The Master is having need of it.’ 35 And they led it toward the Jesus. And tossing their garments on the colt, they mount the Jesus on it. 36 Of him going, yet, they strewed their garments under him in the way. 37 Of him nearing, yet, already toward the stepping down of the mountain of the olives, all the multitude of the learners begins to be having joy, praising the Placer in a great voice about all the powers which they perceived, 38 saying, “Blessed is the King, coming in the name of Master! Peace in heaven, and glory among highest ones!” 39 And some of the Pharisees in the throng say toward him, “Teacher, rebuke your learners!” 40 And answering, he said, “I am saying to you, if ever these shall be silent, the stones shall be crying.” 41 And as he nears, perceiving the city, he laments on it, 42 saying that, “If you knew in this day, you also, the things toward peace! Yet now it was hid from your eyes, 43 it being that days shall be arriving on you, and your enemies shall be casting a rampart to you, and shall be surrounding you, and pressing you everywhere. 44 And they shall be leveling you and your offspring in you, and they shall not be leaving a stone on a stone in you, in a stead of which you did not know the season of your overseeing.” 45 And entering into the sacred place, he begins to be casting out the ones selling, 46 saying to them, “It has been written, ‘And my house shall be a house of prayer.’ Yet you make it a cave of robbers!” 47 And he was teaching down day in the sacred place. Yet the chief priests and the writers and the foremost of the people sought to destroy him. 48 And they did not find what they should be doing, for all the people hearing him, hung on him.
Chapter 20
1 And it became in one of the days of his teaching and bringing the people a good message in the sacred place, the chief priests and the writers together with the seniors stand by. 2 And they say toward him, saying, “Say to us, in what authority are you doing these things, or who is the one giving you this authority?” 3 Yet answering, he said toward them, “I shall be asking you also a word, and you say to me. 4 The immersion of John, was it out of heaven, or out of humans?” 5 They, yet, reckon together toward themselves, saying that, “If we are saying, ‘Out of heaven,’ he shall be declaring, ‘Wherefore do you not believe him?’ 6 Yet if we are saying, ‘Out of humans,’ all the people shall be stoning us, for they are persuaded that John is a prophet.” 7 And they answered as not perceiving whence. 8 And the Jesus said to them, “Neither am I saying to you, in what authority I am doing these things.” 9 Yet toward the people, he begins to be saying this parable: “Some human plants a vineyard, and leased it to farmers, and travels times enough. 10 And in season, he commissions a slave toward the farmers, that they shall be giving to him from the fruit of the vineyard. Yet the farmers put him out from them empty, lashing him. 11 And he added to send a different slave. Yet lashing that one also, and dishonoring him, they put him out from them empty. 12 And he added to send a third. Yet wounding this one also, they cast him out. 13 The master of the vineyard yet said, ‘What shall I be doing? I shall be sending my beloved son. They shall be abashed of him, equally as of me.’ 14 Yet perceiving him, the farmers reasoned toward one another, saying, ‘This is the allotment enjoyer. We may be killing him, that the allotment enjoyment may become ours.’ 15 And casting him out of the vineyard, they kill him. What, then, shall the master of the vineyard be doing to them? 16 He shall be coming and destroying these farmers, and shall be giving the vineyard to others.” Hearing it, yet, they say, “May it not be!” 17 Yet looking in to them, he said, “What, then, is this having been written? ‘A stone which the ones building reject, this one became into head of corner.’ 18 Everyone falling on that stone, shall be shattered. Yet on whomever it is falling, it shall be winnowing him.” 19 And the writers and chief priests seek to be casting their hands on him in this hour, and they were afraid of the people, for they know that he said this parable toward them. 20 And scrutinizing him, they commission eavesdroppers who are making themselves hypocrites, as though just, that they may be getting hold of a word of his, so as to give him over to the chieftainship and authority of the leader. 21 And they inquire of him, saying, “Teacher, we have perceived that you are saying and teaching correctly, and you are not getting up a face, but on truth are teaching the Placer’s way. 22 Is it allowed to us to give tax to Caesar, or not?” 23 Yet considering their cleverness, he said toward them, 24 “Show me a denarius. Whose image and inscription is it having?” 24 They yet say, “Caesar’s.” 25 He yet said toward them, “In the now, be rendering Caesar’s things to Caesar, and the Placer’s things to the Placer.” 26 And they are not strong enough to be getting hold of a declaration of his in front of the people. And marveling on his answer, they hush. 27 Coming toward him, yet, some of the Sadducees, the ones saying there is to be no resurrection, inquire of him, 28 saying, “Teacher, Moses writes to us that if a brother of anyone is dying, having a woman, and this one is childless, his brother may be getting the woman and raising out seed to his brother. 29 There were seven brothers, then, and the first, getting a woman, died childless. 30 And the second, 31 and the third similarly; yet also the seven, left no offspring, and they died. 32 Subsequently the woman also died. 33 In the resurrection, then, of which one of them is the woman becoming? For the seven have had her as woman.” 34 And the Jesus said to them, “The sons of this duration are marrying and giving to marriage. 35 Yet the ones deemed worthy to be happening of that duration, and of the resurrection out of dead ones, are neither marrying nor given to marriage. 36 For neither are they still able to be dying, for they are equal to messengers and are sons of Placer, being sons of the resurrection. 37 Yet that the dead are being roused, Moses also divulges on it, of the thorn bush, as he is saying Master is the Placer of Abraham, and Placer of Isaac, and Placer of Jacob. 38 Placer, yet, is not of dead ones, but of living ones, for to him, all are living.” 39 Yet answering, some of the writers say, “Teacher, you say ideally.” 40 For they did not still dare to be inquiring anything of him. 41 Yet he said toward them, “How are they saying the Anointed is to be a son of David? 42 For David, saying in a scroll of Psalms, said, ‘Master said to my Master, ‘Be sitting out right of me, 43 till I am placing your enemies as a footstool of your feet.’ ‘ 44 David, then, is calling him Master. And how is he his son?” 45 All the people hearing it, yet, he said to his learners, 46 “Be heeding, from the writers, the ones willing to be walking in robes, and being fond of greetings in the markets, and foremost seats in the gathering places, and foremost reclining places in the dinners, 47 who are devouring the houses of the widows, and in pretense are praying long. These shall be getting more abundant judgment.”
Chapter 21
1 Looking up, yet, he perceived the rich casting their oblations into the exchequer. 2 Yet he perceived some widow also, a drudge, casting there two leptons, 3 and he said, “Truly I am saying to you, that this poor widow casts more than all. 4 For all these, out of the abundance to them, cast into the oblations. Yet this one, out of her deficiency, casts all the livelihood which she had.” 5 And of some saying about the sacred place, that it has been adorned with ideal stones and votive offerings, he said, 6 “These which you are beholding, days shall be coming in which not a stone shall be left on a stone, which shall not be loosed-down.” 7 They inquire of him, yet, saying, “Teacher, when shall these things be, and what is the sign when these things are about to become?” 8 He yet said, “Be looking out, that you may not be strayed. For many shall be coming on my name, saying, ‘I am he,’ and, ‘The season has neared.’ You may not be gone behind them. 9 Yet whenever you may be hearing of battles and turbulences, you may be not dismayed, for it is a must for these things to first become, but the consummation is not immediately.” 10 Then he said to them, “Nation shall be roused on nation, and kingdom on kingdom. 11 There shall be great quakings besides, and famines and pestilences down places, fearful things besides, and great signs from heaven. 12 Yet before all these things, they shall be casting their hands on you and persecuting you, giving you over into the gathering places and jails, you being led away onto kings and leaders, on account of my name. 13 It shall be eventuating to you, into a testimony. 14 Be placing it in your hearts, then, to not be caring beforehand to be defended. 15 For I shall be giving to you a mouth and wisdom in which all the ones opposing you shall not be able to withstand or contradict. 16 Yet you shall also be given over by parents, and brothers, and relatives, and friends, and they shall be causing ones out of you to die. 17 And you shall be hated by all, because of my name. 18 And a hair out of your head shall by no means be destroyed. 19 In your endurance, you shall be acquiring your souls. 20 Yet whenever you may be perceiving Jerusalem being surrounded by war camps, then be knowing that her desolation has neared. 21 Then let the ones in the Judea be fleeing into the mountains, and the ones in the country places, let them not be entering into her, 22 it being that these are days of vengeance, the fulfilling of all the things having been written. 23 Woe to the ones having pregnancy, and to the ones suckling in those days! For there shall be a great necessity on the land, and indignation to this people. 24 And they shall be falling in a mouth of a sword, and shall be brought into captivity into all the nations, and Jerusalem shall be trodden by nations, until seasons of nations shall be fulfilled. 25 And there shall be signs in sun and moon and gleamers, and on land, pressure of nations, in perplexity at resound of sea and of shaking, 26 of chilling of humans, from fear and foreboding of the things coming on the habitance. For the powers of the heavens shall be shaken. 27 And then they shall be seeing the son of the human coming in a cloud with much power and glory. 28 Yet of these things beginning to become, bend up and lift up your heads, because your deliverance is nearing.” 29 And he said a parable to them: “Be perceiving the fig tree, and all the trees. 30 Whenever they are already budding, observing from yourselves, you are knowing that the warm is already near. 31 Thus also you, whenever you may be perceiving these things becoming, you are knowing that the Placer’s kingdom is near. 32 Amen, I am saying to you, this generation may by no means be passing by, till all may become. 33 The heaven and the land shall be passing by, yet my words may by no means be passing by. 34 Yet be heeding to yourselves, lest at some time your hearts may be heavied in crapulence and drunkenness, and with livelihood anxieties, and that day be standing unperceived on you. 35 For it shall be intruding as a trap on all the ones sitting on the face of all the land. 36 Yet be vigilant in every season, beseeching that you may be prevailing to be escaping all these things about to become, and to be stood in front of the son of the human.” 37 The days, yet, he was teaching in the sacred place, yet the nights, coming out, he camped into the mountain, the one called of olives. 38 And all the people made it toward him early in the sacred place to be hearing him.
Chapter 22
1 The festival of the unfermented breads neared, yet, the one being said Passover, 2 and the chief priests and the writers sought how they may be lifting him away, for they feared the people. 3 Satan, yet, entered into Judas, the one called Iscariot, he being out of the number of the twelve. 4 And coming away, he speaks together with the chief priests and officers, as to how he may be giving him over to them. 5 And they were having joy, and agreed to give silver to him. 6 And he avows, and sought a good season to give him over to them, minus a throng. 7 The day of the unfermented breads came, yet, in which it was a must for the passover to be sacrificed. 8 And he commissions Peter and John, saying, “Being gone, make ready to us the passover, that we may be eating.” 9 They say to him, yet, “Where are you willing that we should be making ready?” 10 He yet said to them, “Be perceiving, of your entering into the city, a human shall be meeting you, bearing a holder of water. Follow him into the house into which he is entering. 11 And you shall be declaring to the house owner of the house, ‘The teacher is saying to you, ‘Where is the caravansary where I may be eating the passover with my learners?’ ‘ 12 And that one shall be showing to you a great upper room having been strewn. Make ready there.” 13 Coming away, yet, they found it down as he had declared to them, and they make ready the passover. 14 And when the hour became, he leans back, and the commissioners together with him. 15 And he said toward them, “With desire I desire to be eating this passover with you, before my suffering. 16 For I am saying to you, that I may by no means be eating of it, till it is being fulfillled in the Placer’s kingdom.” 17 And receiving a drink cup, thanking, he said, “Be getting this, and divide it into yourselves. 18 For I am saying to you, that I may by no means be drinking from the product of the grapevine, from the now, till the Placer’s kingdom is coming.” 19 And getting bread, thanking, he breaks it and gives to them, saying, “This is my body, being given over you; be doing this into the remembrance of me,” 20 and the drink cup similarly, after the dining, saying, “This drink cup is the new covenant in my blood, being poured out over you. 21 However, be perceiving, the hand of the one giving me over is with me on the table, 22 it being that the son of the human is indeed going, down the thing having been designated. However, woe to that human through whom he is being given over!” 23 And they begin to be discussing toward themselves, which one out of them it may consequently be, about to be practicing this thing. 24 Yet a rivalry also became among them, as to which of them is seeming to be greater. 25 Yet he said to them, “The kings of the nations are being master of them, and the ones exercising authority of them are being called benefactors. 26 Yet you are not thus. But let the greater among you become as the youngest, and the one leading, as the one serving. 27 For who is greater, the one lying back at table, or the one serving? Is it not the one lying back at table? Yet I am in your midst as the one serving. 28 You, yet, are the ones having continued with me in my trials. 29 And I am covenanting to you, down as my Father covenanted a kingdom to me, 30 that you may be eating and drinking at my table in my kingdom, and you shall be sitting on thrones, judging the twelve tribes of the Israel. 31 Simon, Simon, be perceving, the Satan requests to quake* you ones as the grain. 32 Yet I besought about you, that your belief may not be defaulting. And when you are turning back, establish your brothers.” 33 He said, yet, to him, “Master, I am ready to be going with you into both jail and death!” 34 Yet he said, “I am saying to you, Peter, a cock shall not be sounding today, till you shall thrice be renouncing to perceive me.” 35 And he said to them, “When I commission you, minus purse, beggar’s bag, and sandals, were you deficient anything?” They, yet, say, “Nothing.” 36 He yet said to them, “But now, the one having a purse, let him lift it, and a beggar’s bag likewise. And the one not having a sword, let him sell his cloak and buy one. 37 For I am saying to you, that it is a must for this thing having been written to be consummated in me, ‘And he is reckoned with lawless ones,’ for it also about me is having a consummation.” 38 They yet say, “Master, be perceiving, here are two swords.” He yet said to them, “It is enough.” 39 And coming out, he was gone, down the custom, into the mountain of the olives, and the learners follow him. 40 Becoming on the place, yet, he said, “Be praying, to be not entering into trial.” 41 And he is pulled away from them, as if a cast of a stone. And placing his knees, he prayed, 42 saying, “Father, if you are intending, carry this drink cup aside from me; however, let not my will effect become, but yours.” 43 A messenger from heaven was seen by him, yet, strengthening him. 44 And becoming in a contest, he prayed more earnestly, and his sweat became as if clots of blood stepping down on the land. 45 And rising from the prayer, coming toward the learners, he found them reposing, from the sorrow. 46 And he said to them, “Why are you drowsing? Rising, be praying, lest you be entering into trial.” 47 Of him still speaking, be perceiving, a throng, and the one being said Judas, one of the twelve, came before them, and he nears the Jesus to kiss him. 48 Jesus, yet, said to him, “Are you, in a kiss, giving over the son of the human?” 49 The ones about him, yet, perceiving the thing that shall be, say, “Master, shall we be smiting in sword?” 50 And someone out of them smites the chief priest’s slave and lifts his right ear from him. 51 Yet answering, the Jesus said, “Let be, till this.” And touching the ear, he heals him. 52 Jesus yet said toward the ones coming along on him, chief priests, and officers of the sacred place, and seniors, “Do you come out as on a robber, with swords and wooden cudgels? 53 Down day, of me being with you in the sacred place, you do not stretch out your hands on me. But this is your hour, and the authority of the darkness.” 54 Getting him together, yet, they led him, and they led him into the chief priest’s house. The Peter, yet, followed afar. 55 They kindling a fire in the midst of the court, yet, and being seated together, the Peter sat amidst them. 56 Perceiving him, yet, some maid, sitting toward the light and stretching to him, said, “This one also was together with him.” 57 Yet he disowns him, saying, “I have not perceived him, woman.” 58 And after a bit, a different one perceiving him, also averred, “You also are out of them.” Yet the Peter averred, “Human, I am not!” 59 And of an interval as if of one hour, some other one was strongly saying, “On truth, this one also was with him, for he also is Galilean.” 60 Yet the Peter said, “Human, I have not perceived what you are saying!” And instantly, of him still speaking, a cock crows. 61 And being turned, the Master looks in to the Peter, and the Peter is reminded of the Master’s declaration as he said to him that, “Ere a cock is to crow today, you shall be renouncing me thrice.” 62 And coming outside, he laments bitterly. 63 And the men, pressing Jesus, scoffed him, lashing him. 64 And covering him about, they inquired of him, saying, “Prophesy! Who is the one hitting you?” 65 And they said many other things into him, calumniating. 66 And as it became day, the seniorship of the people was gathered, chief priests besides, and writers, and they led him away into their Sanhedrin, saying, 67 “If you are the Anointed, say it to us!” Yet he said to them, “If I am saying to you, by no means may you be believing it. 68 Yet if I am asking, by no means may you be answering. 69 Yet from the now, the son of the human shall be sitting out right of the Placer’s power.” 70 They all yet say, “You, then, are the Placer’s son!” He yet averred toward them, “You are saying it, that I am.” 71 They yet say, “What need are we still having of a testimony? For we ourselves hear it from his mouth!”

Chapter 23
1 And rising, all the multitude of them led him on the Pilate. 2 They begin to be accusing him, yet, saying, “We found this one perverting our nation, and forbidding to be giving taxes to Caesar, and saying himself to be Anointed, a king.” 3 The Pilate, yet, asks him, saying, “Are you the king of the Judaans?” Answering, yet, he averred to him, “You are saying it.” 4 The Pilate, yet, said toward the chief priests and the throngs, “I am finding not one cause* in this human.” 5 Yet they were strongly saying that, “He is quaking up the people, teaching down the whole Judea, and beginning from the Galilee till here.” 6 The Pilate, hearing it, yet, inquires if the human is Galilean. 7 And recognizing that he is out of the authority of Herod, he sends him up toward Herod, he also being in Jerusalem in these days. 8 The Herod, yet, perceiving the Jesus, was very joyful. For he was, out of enough times, willing to be perceiving him, because of hearing about him, and he expected to be perceiving some sign becoming by him. 9 He, yet, inquired of him in enough words, yet he answers nothing to him. 10 The chief priests and the writers, yet, had stood, strenuously accusing him. 11 Scorning him, yet, the Herod, together with his war troops, scoffing him and casting a shining garment about him, sends him up to the Pilate. 12 In the same day, yet, both the Herod and the Pilate became friends with one another; for before, they inhered in an enmity toward each other. 13 Pilate, yet, calling together the chief priests and the chiefs of the people, 14 said toward them, “You carry this human toward me, as one who is turning the people away. And be perceiving, I, examining him in your sight, found in this human not one cause of which you are accusing against him. 15 But neither did Herod, for he sends him up toward us, and be perceiving, there is nothing worthy of death having been practiced in him. 16 Disciplining him, then, I shall be dismissing him. 17 (nothing here in this version) 18 Yet they all cried out, saying “Be lifting this one, yet dismiss to us the Barabbas!” 19 who because of some standing and murder becoming in the city, was there, being cast into the jail. 20 Yet again the Pilate voices toward them, willing to release the Jesus. 21 Yet they retorted, saying, “Be impaling, be impaling him!” 22 Yet the third time he said to them, “For, what evil does this one do? I found not one cause of death in him. Disciplining him, then, I shall be releasing him.” 23 Yet they lay on in great voices, requesting for him to be impaled, and their voices prevailed. 24 And Pilate adjudges for their request effect to become, 25 yet he releases whom they requested, the one having been cast into jail because of a standing and murder. Yet he gives the Jesus over to their will effect. 26 And as they led him away, getting a hold on Simon, some Cyrenian coming from a field, they place on him the pole, to be carrying it behind the Jesus. 27 Yet a vast multitude of the people and of women followed him, who grieved and dirged on him. 28 Being turned toward them, yet, the Jesus said, “Daughters of Jerusalem, do not be lamenting on me. However, be lamenting on yourselves and on your offspring, 29 it being that, be perceiving, days are coming in which they shall be declaring, ‘Happy are the sterile ones, and the bellies which do not generate, and breasts which do not nurture!’ 30 Then they shall begin to be saying to the mountains, ‘Be falling on us!’ and to the hills, ‘Cover us!’ 31 If it is, that they are doing these things in the wet wood, what may become in the dry?” 32 Yet two others also, evil workers, were led together with him to be lifted away. 33 And when they came on the place being called Skull, there they impale him and the evil workers, one indeed out right, yet one out left. 34 Yet the Jesus said, “Father, forgive them, for they have not perceived what they are doing.” They cast an allotment, yet, his garments being divided. 35 And the people had stood, beholding. Yet the chiefs also sneered, saying, “He saves others? Let him save himself, if this is the Anointed, the Placer’s chosen one!” 36 Yet the warriors also scoff him, coming toward him, carrying vinegar toward him 37 and saying, “If you are the king of the Judaans, save yourself!” 38 Yet there was also an inscription on him: “This is the King of the Judaans.” 39 One of the evil workers, yet, being hanged, calumniated him, saying, “Are you not the Anointed? Save yourself and us!” 40 Yet the other one, answering, rebuking him, averred, “Are you not yet fearing the Placer, it being that you are in the same judgment? 41 And we indeed are so, justly, for we are getting back things worthy of what we practice. Yet this one practices nothing repudiated.” 42 And he said to Jesus, “Be reminded of me when you are coming into your kingdom.” 43 And he said to him, “Amen, I am saying to you, today, you shall be with me in the park.” 44 And it was already as if sixth hour, and a darkness became on the whole land till ninth hour, 45 of the sun defaulting. The curtain of the temple, yet, is split amidst, 46 and voicing in a great voice, the Jesus said, “Father, into your hands I am placing my spirit!” Saying this, yet, he expires. 47 Perceiving the thing becoming, yet, the centurion glorified the Placer, saying, “This human really was just!” 48 And all the throngs coming along together on the beholding, beholding the things becoming, returned, beating their chests. 49 All the ones known to him, yet, had stood from afar, the women also, the ones following together with him from the Galilee, seeing these things. 50 And be perceiving, a man, Joseph in name, inhering as a counselor, a good and just man 51 (this one had not concurred with their counsel and practice) from Arimathea, a city of the Judaans, who was toward receiving the Placer’s kingdom, 52 this one, coming toward the Pilate, requests the body of the Jesus. 53 And lifting it down, he folds it in a linen wrapper, and places him in a rock-hewn tomb where no one was yet lying. 54 And it was a day of preparation, and a sabbath lighted on it. 55 Following, yet, the women who had come together with him out of the Galilee also gaze at the tomb as his body was placed. 56 Returning, yet, they make ready spices and attars, and they indeed be quiet the sabbath, down the precept.

Chapter 24
1 Deep early in the one of the sabbaths, yet, they came on the tomb, carrying spices which they make ready. 2 Yet they found the stone having been rolled from the tomb. 3 Entering, yet, they did not find the body of the Master Jesus. 4 And it became, in their being perplexed about this, be perceiving, two men also stand by them in gleaming garments. 5 They are becoming afraid of them, yet, declining their faces into the land. And they say toward them, “Why are you seeking the living one with the dead ones? 6 He is not here, but was roused. Be reminded as he speaks to you, being still in the Galilee, 7 saying that it is a must for the son of the human to be given over into hands of sinning humans, and to be impaled, and in the third day to rise.” 8 And they are reminded of his declarations. 9 And returning from the tomb, they report all these things to the eleven and to all the rest. 10 They, yet, were the Magdalene Mary, and Joanna, and Mary of James, and the rest together with them, who said these things toward the commissioners. 11  And in their sight, these declarations appeared as if nonsense, and they disbelieved them. 12 Yet rising, the Peter ran on the tomb, and bending beside it, is observing the sheets only. And he came away, marveling toward himself at the thing having become. 13 Also in the same day, be perceiving, two out of them were going into a village, the name of which is Emmaus, it having sixty stadia from Jerusalem. 14 And they conversed toward one another about all of these things having befallen. 15 And it became in their conversing and discussing, Jesus, also nearing, went together with them. 16 Yet their eyes were held so as to not recognize him. 17 He said, yet, toward them, “What are these words which you are bandying toward one another, walking?” And they stood with sad eyes. 18 Yet answering, one, Cleopas in name, said toward him, “Are you only sojourning in Jerusalem, and did not know the things becoming in her in these days?” 19 And he said to them, “Which things?” They yet say to him, “The things about Jesus the Nazarean, a man who became a prophet, powerful in work and in word in front of the Placer and all the people, 20 which is how besides, the chief priests and our chiefs give him over into a judgment of death, and they impale him. 21 We expected, yet, that he is the one about to be redeeming the Israel. But surely, together with all these things, this is the third day leading from when these things became. 22 But also, some women out of us amaze us. Becoming early on the tomb, 23 and not finding his body, they came saying to have also seen a sight of messengers who are saying he is living. 24 And some of the ones together with us came away on the tomb, and they also found it thus, down as the women said, yet they did not perceive him.” 25 And he said toward them, “O unthinking ones, and tardy in the heart to be believing on all which the prophets speak. 26 Was it not a must for the Anointed to be suffering these things, and to be entering into his glory?” 27 And beginning from Moses and from all the prophets, he interprets to them, in all the writings, the things about himself. 28 And they near into the village where they went, and he does toward going further. 29 And they urge him, saying, “Remain with us, it being that it is toward evening, and the day has already declined.” And he entered to remain together with them. 30 And it became, in his being reclined with them, getting the bread, he blesses, and breaking it, he gave to them. 31 Their eyes were opened up, yet, and they recognize him, and he became unapparent from them. 32 And they say toward one another, “Was not our heart burning in us as he spoke to us in the way, as he opened up to us the writings?” 33 And rising in the same hour, they return into Jerusalem, and they found the eleven having been convened together, and the ones together with them saying 34 that the Master really was roused and was seen by Simon. 35 And they unfolded the things in the way, and as he is known to them in the breaking of the bread. 36 Of them speaking these things, yet, he stood in their midst and is saying to them, “Peace to you.” 37 Yet being dismayed and becoming in fear, they supposed to be beholding a spirit. 38 And he said to them, “Why are you disturbed, and because of what, are reasonings stepping up in your heart? 39 Be perceiving my hands and my feet, that I am he. Touch me and be perceiving, it being that a spirit is not having flesh and bones, down as you are beholding me having.” 40 And saying this, he shows to them his hands and feet. 41 Of them still disbelieving, yet, from the joy and marveling, he said to them, “Are you yet having any food in the place?” 42 They yet give to him part of a broiled fish. 43 And getting it, he ate it in their sight. 44 He yet said toward them, “These are the words which I speak toward you, being still together with you, that it is a must for all the things to be fulfilled, written about me in the law of Moses and the prophets and psalms.” 45 Then he opens up their mind to understand the writings, 46 and he said to them that, “Thus has it been written, for the Anointed to be suffering, and to rise out of dead ones in the third day, 47 and on his name, beginning from Jerusalem, repentance to be proclaimed into all the nations, into forgiveness of sins. 48 You are testifiers of these things. 49 And be perceiving, I am commissioning the promise of my Father on you. Yet be seated in the city, till you are slipping into power out of highness.” 50 He led them out till toward Bethany, yet, and on lifting up his hands, he blesses them. 51 And it became in his blessing them, he stood away from them, and was carried up into the heaven. 52 And worshiping him, they return into Jerusalem with great joy. 53 And they were continually in the sacred place, blessing the Placer.
