7 Now when these are going, Jesus began to be saying to
the crowd concerning John: What did you come out into the wilderness to see, [a]
reed shaken by the wind?
8 So what did you come out to
behold? [a] man clothed in soft [things]? Behold those wearing soft [things] are
in the houses of the kings.
9 So why did you come out?
To behold [a] prophet? Yes, I say to you, and much more than a prophet.
10 This is he of whom it is written:
Behold I send my messenger before my face,
Who will prepare the way before me.
11 Truly I say to you, there
has not arisen [one] born of women greater than John the baptizing [one]. But
the least in the kingdom of the heavens is greater than he.
24 Now when the messengers of John had returned he
began to be saying to the crowd concerning John: What did you come out to the
wilderness to behold? [a] reed being shaken by the wind?
25 But what did you come out to see? [a] man dressed in soft garments?
Behold those in splendid and luxurious apparel are in the palaces.
But what did you come out to see? [a] prophet? Yes, I say to you,
and more than [a] prophet.
27 This is he concerning
whom it is written:
Behold I send my messenger before your face
Who will prepare your way before you.
28 I say to you, none born
of women is greater than John, but the least in the kingdom of God is greater
36 Then having left the crowd he came into the house.
And his disciples came to him saying: Explain to us the parable of the tares of
37 So answering he said: The [one] sowing
the good seed is the son of man.
38 And the field is
the world, and the good seed these are the sons of the kingdom, and tares are
the sons of the wicked [one].
39 And the enemy who sows these is the devil, and the
harvest is the completion of the age, and the harvesters are angels.
40 As therefore they gather the tares and burn them in
fire, thus it will be in the completion of the age.
41 The son of man will send his angels and they will gather out of his
kingdom all [those] causing stumbling and those doing lawlessness.
42 And they will throw them into the fiery furnace, where there will be
wailing and grinding of
43 Then the just will shine as the sun in the
kingdom of their father. The [one] having ears to be hearing, let him be hearing.
47 Again the kingdom of the heavens is like [a] net
having been thrown in the sea and having gathered out of every kind,
48 which when it was filled they drag [it] to the
shore and having sat they gather the good into containers, but the rotten they
49 Thus it will be in the completion of the
age. The angels will come and separate the wicked from the midst of the just.
50 And they will throw them into the fiery furnace. There shall there
be wailing and grinding of teeth.
|THE COMING OF THE SON OF MAN|
24 Then Jesus said to his disciples: Whoever wishes to
come after me, he must deny himself and take up his cross and follow me.
34 And calling upon the crowd with his disciples he
said to them: If anyone would come after me, let him renounce himself and take up his
cross, and be following me.
23 And he was saying to them:
If anyone wish to be
coming after me, let him
renounce himself and take
his cross and be following me.
|25 For whoever wishes to save his psyche-life will lose it, and whoever loses his psyche-life because of me will find it.
||35 For whoever would save
his psyche-life will
lose it, but whoever
loses his psyche-life because of me and the gospel will save it.
||24 For whoever wishes
to save his psyche-life
will lose it, but whoever
loses his psyche-life because of me, this [one] will save it.
For how will [a] man be profited if he should gain the whole
world and forfeit his own
psyche-life? Or what will [a] man give in
exchange for his psyche-life?
||36 For what does it profit [a] man to gain the whole world and
forfeit his psyche-life?
37 For what will
[a] man give in exchange for his psyche-life?
|25 For what does it profit [a] man having gained the
whole world but having lost or forfeited himself?
|38 For whoever is
ashamed of me and my words in this adulterous and sinful generation,
||26 For whoever is ashamed of me and [my] words, of this one will the
son of man be ashamed,
27 For the son of man will come in the glory of his father with his angels,
and then he will render
to each according to his doings.
the son of
man will also be ashamed of him, when he come in the glory of his father with the holy angels.
when he comes in his glory and [the glory] of his father
and of the holy angels.
26 Therefore do not fear them, for nothing is covered
that will not be uncovered, and [nothing] secret that will not be known.
2 For nothing is covered that will not be revealed, and
hidden that will not become known.
|27 What I say to you in darkness, you speak in the
light, and what you hear in your ear, proclaim in the houses.
|3 Rather whatever
you say in the darkness will be heard in the light, and what you say into the
ear in the storehouse will be preached on the houses.
|28 And do not fear those killing the body but unable to kill the
psyche-life, but fear
rather the [one] able to destroy both body and psyche-life in Gehenna.
|4 But I say to you my friends, do not fear those who kill the body and
after this are having nothing more to do.
5 But I will
show you whom you should fear; fear the [one] having authority after killing to
throw [you] into Gehenna .
Yes, I say to you, fear this [one].
|29 Are not two
sparrows sold for [a] penny? And one of them will not fall on the ground without your father.
|6 Do not five
sparrows sell for two farthings? And one of them does not escape notice before
|30 But the very hairs of your head are all numbered.
31 Therefore do not fear; you are worth more than many
|7 But even all the hairs [of your] head are
numbered. Be not fearing, you are worth many sparrows.
|32 Therefore everyone who will profess me
before men, I also will profess him before my father in the heavens.
|8 But I say to you, everyone who professes me before men, the son of man will also
profess him before the
angels of God.
|33 But whoever will deny me before men, I also will deny him before my father in the
|9 But the [one] who denies me before men
will he deny before the angels of God.
10 Be seeing that you do not despise [one] of these
little [ones], For I say to you that their angels in [the] heavens always see
the face of my father in the heavens.
11 For the son
of man came to save the lost.
|12 How does it seem to you?
If it should come to pass to [a] certain man one hundred sheep and one of them
gone astray, will he not leave the ninety-nine on the mountains and having gone
seek the [one] gone astray?
|3 But he said to them this parable saying:
What man among you having [a] hundred sheep and having lost of
them one does not leave the ninety nine in the wilderness and proceed to the
lost until he find it?
|13 And if it come to pass
he finds it, truly I say to you that he rejoices upon it more than upon the
ninety-nine that had not gone astray.
5 And when he finds [it] he will
place [it] upon his shoulders rejoicing,
6 and having
come to his house he calls together his friends and his neighbors, saying to
them: Rejoice with me, for I found my sheep that [was] lost.
14 Thus it is not [a] wish
before your father in the heavens that [one] of these little [ones] be lost .
7 I say to you that there will be likewise joy in heaven over one
sinner repenting than over the ninety nine just [ones] who have no need of
8 Or [a] certain woman having ten drachmas, if she lose
one drachma, does she not light [a] lamp and sweep the house and seek diligently
until it be found?
9 And having found [it] she calls
together her friends and neighbors saying: Rejoice with me, for I found the
drachma that was lost.
10 Likewise, I say to you, Joy
comes to pass before the angels of God over one sinner repenting.
19 But a certain man was rich, and he had put on
purple garments and fine linen enjoying himself each day splendidly.
20 But a certain poor [man] by name Lazarus had been
cast to his gate being covered with ulcerous sores.
21 And he was lusting to be filled from that falling from the table of
the rich [one]; but even the dogs coming were licking his ulcerous sores.
22 Now it came to pass the poor [man] died and was
gathered by the angels to Abraham's lap; but the rich [man] also died and was buried.
23 And in Hades lifting up his eyes, being in torment, he sees
Abraham from afar and Lazarus in his lap,
24 and having called
out he said: Father Abraham, have mercy on me and send Lazarus in order that he
dip the tip of his finger in water and cool my tongue, for I suffer torment in
25 But Abraham said: Child, remember that
you received your good [things] in your zoe-life, and likewise Lazarus the evil. But now he is
encouraged, and you suffer torment.
26 And in all
those [things] between you [people] and us [a] great chasm is fixed, so that those
wishing to go down from here to you be not able, nor from there to us may not
27 But he said: I ask you therefore, Father, in order that you may
sent him to my fathers house,
28 for I have five
brothers, that he may warn them, that they also not come to this place of
29 But Abraham says: They have Moses and the
prophets, let him hear
30 But he said: No, father Abraham, but if
someone proceed from [the] dead to them: they would repent.
31 But he said to them: If they do not hear Moses and the prophets,
neither would they be persuaded if someone rise from the dead.
23 In that day the Sadducees came to him, who say
[there] is no resurrection, and they questioned him
18 And Sadducees come to him, who say there is no
resurrection, and asked him saying:
27 Now some of the Sauces having come, who oppose
[that there] is [a] resurrection, asked him
|24 saying: Teacher, Moses said: If anyone die not having children, his
brother shall marry "marry
as next of kin" his wife and raise up seed to his brother.
||19 Teacher, Moses
wrote to us that:
If any brother die, and leave behind [a] wife and not leave
children, that his brother should take the wife and raise up seed to his
Teacher, Moses wrote to us, If any brother die having [a] wife, and this [man]
be childless, that his brother take the woman and raise up seed to his brother.
|25 Now there were beside him seven brothers. And the first who married
came to his end, and not having seed left his wife to his brother.
||20 There were seven
brothers. And the first took [a] wife, and when he died he did not leave seed.
||29 Now there were seven brothers, and the first taking
[a] wife died childless.
Likewise also the second and the third until the seventh.
||21 And the second took her and died not having left
seed; and the third likewise.
||30 And the second,
31 and the third took her, but likewise even the seven
did not leave [a] child and they died.
|27 Last of all the wife died.
||22 And the seven did not
leave seed. Last of all the wife also died.
||32 And finally
the woman died.
|28 In the resurrection therefore whose of the seven is the wife? For
all had her.
||23 In the
resurrection, whose will
the wife be? For the seven had her [as] wife.
||33 Therefore in the resurrection, of
which of them will the woman become wife? For the seven had her wife.
|29 But answering Jesus said to them: You
are misled, not knowing the Scriptures nor the power of God.
said to them: Not because of this are you deceived, not knowing the Scriptures
nor the power of God?
||34 And Jesus said to them: The sons of this age marry
and are given in marriage,
|30 For in the resurrection they neither marry nor are given in
31 but are as the angels in heaven.
|25 For when they are resurrected
from the dead, they neither marry nor are given in marriage, but are as angels
in the heavens.
||35 but those considered
worthy to attain that age and the resurrection of the dead neither marry nor are
given in marriage.
36 For neither are they still able
to die, for they are like angels, and they are sons of God being sons of the
|But concerning the
resurrection of the dead, haven't you read the [thing] spoken to you from God
||26 Now concerning the dead that they
arise, have you not read in the scroll of Moses at the bush how the Lord spoke
to him saying:
||37 because the dead are raised, and
Moses revealed [it] at the bush, as he says:
|32 I am the God of Abraham and the God of
Isaac and the God of Jacob?
I am the God
of Abraham and
God of Isaac and
God of Jacob?
The Lord, the God
of Abraham and
God of Isaac and
God of Jacob;
|He is not God of the dead but of the zoe-living
||27 He is not God of the dead
but of the zoe-living .
You are greatly deceived.
||38 But he is not God of the dead, but of
the zoe-living, for all
live in him.
33 And hearing this the crowds were astounded at his teaching.
39 So some of the scribes answering him
said: Teacher, you spoke well.
40 For no longer
daring, no one questioned him.
27 For as the lightning comes out from the east and
shines to the west, thus is the coming of the son of man.
|28 Where the carcass is, there will be gathered the vultures.
|29 But immediately after the affliction of those days
the sun will be darkened and the moon will not give its radiance,
|24 But in those days after that tribulation the sun
will be darkened, and the moon will not give its radiance,
||25 And there will be signs in the sun and moon and
stars, and upon the earth dismay of the nations in perplexity, sounds of [the]
sea and of tossing,
|and the starts
will fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken.
||25 And the stars will be falling out of heaven and the powers in the
heavens will be shaken.
||26 when men die from fear and of
expectation of the [things] coming upon the inhabited earth; for the powers of
the heavens will be shaken.
|30 And then will be manifest the sign of the son of
man in heaven, and then all the tribes of the land will hide and will see the
son of man coming on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.
||26 And they will see the son
of man coming in the clouds with great power and glory.
||27 And then they will see
the son of man coming in [a] cloud with power and great glory.
|31 And he will send his angels with great
trumpet-calls, and they will gather his chosen from the four winds, from one end
of heaven to the other.
||27 And then he will send the angels and they will gather his chosen out
of the four winds from the edge of [the] earth to the edge of heaven.
|32 Learn from the fig tree the
parable: When its branches already become tender and the leaves put forth, you
know that summer is near.
||28 But from the fig tree learn the parable, When its
branches have already become tender and have put forth its leaves, you know that
summer is at hand.
|33 Thus you also when you
see all these [things], you will know that it is near, [even] at the doors.
||29 Thus you also, when you see
these [things] come to pass, know that it is at hand upon the doors.
||28 But when these [things] begin to come to pass, stand erect and lift
up your heads, because your release is at hand.
|34 Truly I say to you that this generation shall
not pass away until all these [things] come to pass.
||30 Truly I say to you that this generation does not pass away until all
these [things] come to pass.
|29 And he
spoke to them [a] parable, Behold the fig and all the trees,
30 when they already put out [leaves], seeing from yourselves you know
that summer is already near.
31 Likewise you also,
when you see these [things] come to pass, you know that the kingdom of God is
32 Truly I say to you that this generation shall not
pass away until all come to pass.
|35 Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will not pass
||31 Heaven and [the] earth
will pass away, but my words will not pass away.
||33 Heaven and earth
may pass away, but my words will not pass away.
|36 Concerning that day and hour nobody knows,
not even the angels of the heavens, nor the son, except the father only.
||32 Concerning that day or that hour no one knows, neither the angels in
heaven nor the son, except the father.
31 But when the son of man comes in his glory and all
his angels with him, then will he sit on the throne of his glory.
And all the nations will be gathered before him, and he will
separate them from one another, as the shepherd separates the sheep from the
33 And he will place the sheep on his right,
but the goats on his left.
34 Then the king will say
to those on his right: Come you blessed of my father, Inherit the kingdom
prepared for you from the foundation of the world.
35 For I hungered and you gave me to eat, I thirsted and you gave me to
drink, I was [a] stranger and you gathered me,
36 naked and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, in
prison and you came to me.
37 Then the just will
answer him saying: Lord, when did we see you hungry and we fed you, or thirsty
and we gave you to drink?
38 And when did we see you
[a] stranger and we gathered you, or naked and we fed you?
39 And when did we see you sick or in prison and we came to you?
40 And answering the king will say to them: Truly I
say to you, inasmuch as you did [it] to one of the least of these my brothers,
you did it to me.
41 And then will he say to those on
his left: Be departing from me, you cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for
the devil and his angels.
42 For I hungered and you
did not give me to eat, I was thirsty and you did not give me to drink,
43 I was [a] stranger and you did not gather me, naked
and you did not clothe me, sick and in prison and you did not look after me.
44 Then they also answered saying: Lord, when did we
see you hungering or thirsting or [a] stranger or naked or sick or in prison and
we did not serve you?
45 Then he will answer them
saying: Truly I say to you, inasmuch as you did it not to one of the least of
these, neither did you do it to me.
46 And these will
go into eternal punishment, but the just into eternal zoe-life.
47 And while he was yet speaking, Behold Judas one of
the twelve came, and with him [a] great crowd with swords and clubs from the
chief priests and elders of the people.
43 And straightway while he was yet speaking Judas one
of the twelve arrived and with him [a] crowd from the chief priests and scribes
and elders with swords and clubs.
47 While he was yet speaking behold [a] crowd, and the
[one] being called Judas one of the twelve, came before them, and he drew near
to Jesus to kiss him.
|48 And the
[one] delivering him up gave them [a] sign saying: Whom I kiss is he, lay hold
||44 Now the [one]
delivering him up had given them [a] sign: Whom I kiss is he; Lay hold of him
and lead [him] away securely.
|49 And straightway coming to Jesus he
said: Greetings, Rabbi, and he kissed him.
||45 and having come
straightway having gone to him he says: Rabbi, and kissed him;
Jesus said to him: Friend, for whom are you here? Then those having come lay
their hands on him and took him.
||46 So they put their hands on him and laid hold of him.
|48 But Jesus said to him: Judas,
would you deliver up the son of man with [a] kiss?
49 But when they saw what will be concerning him they said: Lord, do we
strike with the sword?
|51 And behold one of
those with Jesus stretching forth his hand drew out his sword and when struck
the slave of the chief priest he cut off his ear.
Now a certain one of those standing by having drawn his sword
struck the slave of the chief priest and took off his ear.
||50 And [a] certain one among
them struck the slave of the chief priest, and took of his right ear.
|51 But answering Jesus said: Permit until this; and
having touched his earlet he healed him.
|52 Then Jesus says to him: Put away your sword from this place, for all
who take the sword are destroyed by the sword.
do you suppose that I am unable to call upon my father, and he will place at my
disposal at once more than twelve legions of angels?
54 How then would the Scriptures be fulfilled that must thus come to
|55 In that hour Jesus said to the crowds: As upon [a] robber have you come out with
swords and clubs to seize
me? Daily with you I sat in the temple teaching, and you did not lay hold of me.
56 but this whole [thing] came to pass in order that the Scriptures of
the prophets be fulfilled.
|48 And Jesus answering said to them: Have you come out as upon [a]
robber with swords and clubs to arrest me?
49 By day
was I with you in the temple teaching, and you did not lay hold of me; but in
order that the Scripture be fulfilled.
|52 But Jesus
said to the chief priests and soldiers of the temple and elders having come to
be upon him: As upon [a] robber do you come out with swords and clubs?
53 When I was daily with you in the temple you did not
stretch out your hands upon me. But this is your hour and the authority of

||50 And having
left him they fled.
51 And a certain young man
followed him wearing [a] shirt upon his nakedness.
52 But having left the shirt he fled naked.
John 1 -- The Angels Ascending and Descending
47 Jesus saw Nathaniel coming toward him and says
concerning him: Behold [a] true Israelite in whom there is not deceit.
48 Nathaniel says to him: From where do you know me?
Jesus answered and said to him: Before Phillip called you, being under the fig
tree I saw you.
49 Nathaniel answered him: Rabbi, you
are the son of God, you are king of Israel.
answered and said to him: Because I told you that I saw you under the fig tree
you are believing? Greater than these you will see.
51 Truly truly I say to you, You will [all] see heaven having opened and the angels of God
ascending and descending upon the son of man.
