24, 32 There was a division therefore again among 20 the Jews for these sayings. And many of them
said, He hath a devil, and is mad; why hear ye 21 him? Others said, These are not the words of
him that hath a devil. Can a devil open the Ex. 4. 11. eyes of the blind ?

And the seventy returned again with joy, A. D. 33. 17
saying, Lord, even the devils are subject unto 18 us through thy name. And he said unto them,
“* I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven. Rev. 9. 1. 19 “ Behold, I give unto you power to tread on Acts 28

Father: and no man knoweth who “ the Son is, but the Father; and who the “ Father is, but the Son, and he to whom the “Son will reveal him."
And he turned him unto his disciples, and said privately, “Blessed are the eyes which see 24 " the things that ye see: for I tell you, d that 1 Pet. I.

86. The parable of the good Samaritan.
L. 10. And, behold, a certain lawyer stood up, and tempted him, saying, Master, what shall I do to inherit eternal life? He said unto him, “What 26
“ is written in the law ? how readest thou?" * Deu. 6.5. and he answering said, a Thou shalt love the 27
Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all
thy soul, and with all thy strength, and with all • Lev. 19. thy mind; and thy neighbour as thyself. And 28
he said unto him, “Thou hast answered right: Lev.18.5.“ this do, and thou shalt live.” But he, willing 29
to justify himself, said unto Jesus, And who is
“ certain man went down from Jerusalem to
parted, leaving him half dead. And by chance 31
“ there came down a certain priest that way: a Ps.38.11.“ and when he saw him, he passed by on the
“ other side. And likewise a Levite, when he 32
was at the place, came and looked on him,
up his wounds, pouring in oil and wine, and
morrow when he departed, he took out two

87. Christ teacheth to pray. L. 11.
And it came to pass, that, as he was praying A. D. 33. in a certain place, when he ceased, one of his
disciples said unto him, Lord, teach us to pray, 2 as John also taught his disciples. And he said unto them, “When ye pray, say, Our Father
which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.
Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done, as in 3“ heaven, so in earth. Give us day by day our 4“ daily bread. And forgive us our sins; for we “ also forgive every one that is indebted to us. “ And lead us not into temptation; but deliver 5“ us from evil.” And he said unto them,"Which “ of you shall have a friend, and shall go unto “ him at midnight, and say unto him, Friend, 6“ lend me three loaves; for a friend of mine
“ in his journey is come to me, and I have 7“ nothing to set before him ? And he from “ within shall answer and say, Trouble me not: “ the door is now shut, and my
children are “ with me in bed; I cannot rise and give thee. 8“ I say unto you, Though he will not rise and
give him, because he is his friend, yet because “ of his importunity he will rise and give him as many as he needeth. And I say unto
a Jam. 1.6. “ Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye 22.
“ shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto 10“ you. For every one that asketh receiveth;
“ and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that 11 “ knocketh it shall be opened. If a son shall
“ ask bread of any of you that is a father, will
“ he give him a stone? or if he ask a fish, will 12 “ he for a fish give him a serpent? or if he shall 13“ ask an egg, will he offer him a scorpion ? If " ye then, being evil, know how to give good
gifts unto your children: how much more “shall your heavenly Father give the Holy Spi“ rit to them that ask him ?”
