without, and to knock at the door, saying, Lord, Near Jerusa-
Lord, open unto us ; and he shall answer and say
unto you, I know you not whence ye are:

Then shall ye begin to say, We have eaten and
drunk in thy presence, and thou hast taught in
our streets.

But he shall say, I tell you, I know you not whence ye are; depart from me, all ye workers of iniquity.

There shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth, when ye shall see Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, and all the prophets, in the kingdom of God, and you yourselves thrust out.

And they shall come from the east, and from the west, and from the north, and from the south, and shall sit down in the kingdom of God.

* And, behold, there are last which shall be s Matt. xix. first, and there are first which shall be last.

The same day there came certain of the Pharisees, saying unto him, Get thee out, and depart hence : for Herod will kill thee.

And he said unto them, Go ye, and tell that fox, Behold, I cast out devils, and I do cures today and to-morrow, and the third day I shall be perfected.

Nevertheless I must walk to-day, and to-morrow, and the day following: for it cannot be that

a prophet perish out of Jerusalem. Luke xiii. 34.

+ o Jerusalem, Jerusalem, which killest the pro- t Matt. xxiii. phets, and stonest them that are sent unto thee; how often would I have gathered thy children together, as a hen doth gather her brood under her wings, and ye would not !

Behold, your house is left unto you desolate: and verily I say unto you, Ye shall not see me, until the time come when ye shall say, Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord.

of one of the chief Pharisees to eat bread on the

Luke xiv. 5.

And, behold, there was a certain man before Luke xiv. 2. him which had the dropsy.

And Jesus answering spake unto the lawyers Luke xiv. 3. and Pharisees, saying, Is it lawful to heal on the sabbath-day?

And they held their peace. And he took him, Luke xiv. 4. and healed him, and let him

go;
And answered them, saying, Which of you
shall have an ass or an ox fallen into a pit, and
will not straightway pull him out on the sabbath-
day?

And they could not answer him again to these Luke xiv. 6. things.

And he put forth a parable to those which were Luke xiv. 7. bidden, when he marked how they chose out the chief rooms; saying unto them,

When thou art bidden of any man to a wed- Luke xiv. 8. ding, sit not down in the highest room; lest à more honourable man than thou be bidden of

him ;

And he that bade thee and him come and say Luke xiv. 9. to thee, Give this man place; and thou begin with shame to take the lowest room.

' But when thou art bidden, go and sit down in Luke xiv. 10. the lowest room ; that when he that bade thee cometh, he may say unto thee, Friend, go up higher: then shalt thou have worship in the

sence of them that sit at meat with thee. u Matt. xxiii. u For whosoever exalteth himself shall be abas- Luke xiv. 11.

ed ; and he that humbleth himself shall be ex-
alted.

Then said he also to him that bade him, When Luke xiv. 12.
thou makest a dinner or a supper, call not thy
friends, nor thy brethren, neither thy kinsmen,
nor thy rich neighbours ; lest they also bid thee
again, and a recompence be made thee.

But when thou makest a feast, call * the poor, Luke xiv. 13. the maimed, the lame, the blind :

And thou shalt be blessed ; for they cannot re- Luke xiv. 14. compense thee: for thou shalt be recompensed at the resurrection of the just.

And when one of them that sat at meat with Luke xiv. 15.

him heard these things, he said unto him, y Rev. xix. 9. y Blessed is he that shall eat bread in the king

dom of God.

z Then said he unto him, A certain man made Luke xiv. 16. a great supper, and bade many :

Luke xiv. 17. And sent bis servant at supper-time to say to Near Jerusa

them that were bidden, Come ; for all things are
now ready.

And they all with one consent began to make
excuse. The first said unto him, I have bought
a piece of ground, and I must needs

go and see it:
I pray thee have me excused.
Luke xiv. 19. And another said, I have bought five yoke of

oxen, and I go to prove them : I pray thee have
me excused.

And another said, I have married a wife, and
therefore I cannot come.

So that servant came, and shewed his lord these things. Then the master of the house being angry, said to his servant, Go out quickly into the streets and lanes of the city, and bring in hither the poor, and the maimed, and the halt,

and the blind. Luke xiv. 22. And the servant said, Lord, it is done as thou

hast commanded, and yet there is room.

And the lord said unto the servant, Go out
into the highways and hedges, and compel them
to come in, that

may

be filled.
For I say unto you, That none of those men
which were bidden shall taste of my supper.

For which of you, intending to build a tower, sitteth not down first, and counteth the cost, whe

Then drew near unto him all the Publicans and Luke xv. 1 sinners for to hear him.

And the Pharisees and Scribes murmured, say- Luke xv. 3 ing, This man receiveth sinners, and eateth with them.

And he spake this parable unto them, saying,

• What man of you, having an hundred sheep, Luke xv. 4. if he lose one of them, doth not leave the ninety and nine in the wilderness, and go after that which is lost, until he find it?

And when he hath found it, he layeth it on his Luke xv. 5. shoulders, rejoicing.

And when he cometh home, he calleth together Luke xv. 6. his friends and neighbours, saying unto them, Rejoice with me; for I have found my sheep which

And when she hath found it, she calleth her which cometh friends and her neighbours together, saying, Re-halfpenny, joice with me ; for I have found the piece which I the Roman had lost.

Likewise, I say unto you, there is joy in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner that repenteth.

Parable of the Prodigal Son.

LUKE xv. 11, to the end.
And he said, A certain man had two sons :

And the younger of them sạid to his father,
Father, give me the portion of goods that falleth
to me.

And he divided unto them his living.
And not many days after the younger son ga-
thered all together, and took his journey into a far
country, and there wasted his substance with riot-
ous living:

And when he had spent all, there arose a
mighty famine in that land ; and he began to be
in want.

And he went and joined bimself to a citizen of that country; and he sent him into his fields to feed swine.

And he would fain have filled his belly with the husks that the swine did eat : and no man gave unto him.

And when he came to himself, he said, How many hired servants of my father's have bread enough and to spare, and I perish with hunger?

I will arise and go to my father, and will say unto him, Father, I have sinned against heaven, and before thee,

And am no more worthy to be called thy son: make me as one of thy hired servants.

And he arose, and came to his father. But when he was yet a great way off, his father saw him, and had compassion, and ran, and fell on his neck, and kissed him.

And the son said unto him, Father, I have sinVOL. I.
