as they went in the way, a certain man said unto him, I will follow thee
whithersoever thou goest.
2 And Jesus said unto him, Foxes have holes, and birds of the
air have nests; but the Son of man hath not where to lay his head.
3 And he said unto another, Follow me. But he said, Lord,
suffer me first to go and bury my father.
4 Jesus said unto him, Let the dead bury their dead: but go
thou and preach the
5 And another also said, Lord, I will follow thee; but let me
first go bid them farewell, which are at my house.
6 But Jesus said unto him, No man, having put his hand to the
plough, and looking back, is fit for the
after these things he went forth, and saw a publican, named Levi, sitting at the
receipt of custom: and he said unto him, Follow me.
8 And he left all, rose up, and followed him.
9 And Levi made him a great feast in his house: and there was
a great company of publicans and
10 Many publicans and sinners sat also together with Jesus
and his disciples: for there were many, and they followed him.
11 And when the scribes which were Pharisees saw him eat with
publicans and sinners, they said unto his disciples, How is it that he eateth
and drinketh with publicans and sinners?
12 When Jesus heard it, he saith unto them, They that are
whole have no need of the physician, but they that are sick: I came not to call
the righteous, but sinners.
13 And he spake also a parable unto them; No man teareth a
piece from a new garment and putteth it upon an old; if otherwise, then both the
new maketh a rent, and the piece that was taken out of the new agreeth not with
14 And no man putteth new wine into old bottles; else the new
wine will burst the bottles, and be spilled, and the bottles shall perish.
15 But new wine must be put into new bottles.
it came to pass, that when Jesus had finished these parables, he departed
17 And when he was come into his own country, he taught them
in their synagogue, insomuch that they were astonished, and said, Whence hath
this man this wisdom, and these mighty works?
18 Is not this the carpenter’s son? is not his mother
called Mary? and his brethren, James, and Joseph, and Simon, and Judas?
19 And his sisters, are they not all with us? Whence then
hath this man all these things?
20 And they were offended in him. But Jesus said unto them, A
prophet is not without honour, save in his own country, and in his own house.
when he saw the multitudes, he was moved with compassion on them, because they
were distressed, and downcast, as sheep having no shepherd.
22 And he called unto him the twelve, and began to send them
forth by two and two;
23 And charged them, saying, Go not into the way of the
Gentiles, and into any city of the Samaritans enter ye not:
24 But go rather to the lost sheep of the house of
25 Take ye neither gold, nor silver, nor copper in your
26 Nor bag for your journey, neither two coats, neither
shoes, nor yet a staff: for the workman is worthy of his meat.
27 And into whatsoever city or town ye shall enter, enquire
who in it is worthy; and there abide till ye go thence.
28 And when ye come into an house, salute it.
29 And if the house be worthy, let your peace come upon it:
but if it be not worthy, let your peace return to you.
30 And whosoever shall not receive you, nor hear your words,
when ye depart out of that house or city, shake off the dust of your feet.
31 Verily I say unto you, It shall be more tolerable for the
and Gomorrha in the day of judgment, than for that city.
I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves: be ye therefore wise as
serpents, and innocent as doves.
33 But beware of men: for they will deliver you up to the
councils, and they will scourge you in their synagogues;
34 And ye shall be brought before governors and kings for my
sake, to bear testimony before them and the Gentiles.
35 But when they persecute you in this city, flee ye into
36 Fear them not therefore: for there is nothing covered,
that shall not be revealed; and hid, that shall not be known.
37 What I tell you in darkness, that speak ye in light: and
what ye hear whispered in the ear, that proclaim ye upon the housetops.
38 And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to
kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body
39 Are not two sparrows sold for a farthing? and one of them
shall not fall on the ground without the will of your Father.
40 But the very hairs of your head are all numbered.
41 Fear ye not therefore, ye are of more value than many
42 And they went out, and preached that men should repent.
43 And the apostles gathered themselves together unto Jesus,
and told him all things, both what they had done, and what they had taught.
these things Jesus walked in Galilee: for he would not walk in
, because the Jews sought to kill him.
45 Then came together unto him the Pharisees, and certain of
the scribes, which came from
46 And they saw some of his disciples eat bread with defiled,
that is to say, with unwashen, hands.
47 For the Pharisees, and all the Jews, except they wash
their hands oft, eat not, holding the tradition of the elders.
48 And when they come from the market, except they wash, they
eat not. And many other things there be, which they have received to hold, as
the washing of cups, and pitchers, and copper vessels.
49 And the Pharisees and scribes asked him, Why walk not thy
disciples according to the tradition of the elders, but eat bread with defiled
50 And when he had called all the people unto him, he said
unto them, Hearken unto me every one of you, and understand:
51 There is nothing from without a man, that entering into
him can defile him: but the things which come out of him, those are they that
defile the man.
when he was entered into the house from the people, his disciples asked him
concerning the parable.
53 And he saith unto them, Are ye so without understanding
also? Do ye not perceive, that whatsoever thing from without entereth into the
man, it cannot defile him;
54 Because it entereth not into his heart, but into the
belly, and goeth out into the waste? (Thus declared he all meats clean.)
55 And he said, That which cometh out of the man, that
defileth the man.
56 For from within, out of the heart of men, proceed evil
thoughts, fornications, thefts, murders, adulteries,
57 Covetousness, wickedness, deceit, lasciviousness, envy,
slander, pride, foolishness:
58 All these evil things come from within, and defile the
