89. He exhorteth to enter in at the strait gate :

reproveth Herod, and Jerusalem. L. 13.

And he went through the cities and villages, A. D. 33. teaching, and journeying toward Jerusalem. 23 Then said one unto him, Lord, are there few 24 that be saved? And he said unto them, “Strive

“ to enter in at the strait gate: for many, I Rom. 9. “ say unto you, will seek to enter in, and shall

not be able. b When once the master of the bPs. 32. 6. “ house is risen up, and hath 'shut to the door, “and ye begin to stand without, and to knock “ at the door, saying, Lord, Lord, open unto us;

“ and he shall answer and say unto you, I know 26“ you not whence ye are: then shall ye begin “ to say, We have eaten and drunk in thy pre

sence, and thou hast taught in our streets. 27" But he shall say, I tell you, I know you not

“ whence ye are; depart from me, all ye work- · Ps. 6. & 28“ ers 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
29“ 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
30 “ of God. And, behold, there are last which

“ shall be first, and there are first which shall
66 be last.

The same day there came certain of the Pha-
risees, saying unto him, Get thee out, and depart
32 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 to day and

“ to morrow, and the third day 'I shall be a Heb. 2 33 “ perfected. Nevertheless I must walk to day,

“ and to morrow, and the day following: for it

“ cannot be that a prophet perish out of Jeru34 “ salem. O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, which killest

thy children together, as a hen doth gather her

“ brood under her wings, and ye would not ! Lev. 26. “ behold, o your house is left unto you desolate: 35 PS 69.26

90. Christ healeth the dropsy on the sabbath;

teacheth humility. The parable of the great
supper.

L. 14.
And it came to pass, as he went into the
house of one of the chief Pharisees to eat bread
on the sabbath day, that they watched him.
And, behold, there was a certain man before 2
him which had the dropsy. And Jesus answer-3
ing spake unto the lawyers and Pharisees, say-
ing, “Is it lawful to heal on the sabbath day?"
And they held their peace. And he took him, 4

and healed him, and let him go; and answered 5 * Ex. 23. 5. them, saying, a Which of you shall have an ass Deu. 22. 4. « or an ox fallen into a pit, and will not straight

way pull him out on the sabbath day?" And 6
they could not answer him again to these things.

And he put forth a parable to those which 7
were ? bidden, when he marked how they chose
out the chief rooms; saying unto them, “When 8
“ thou art bidden of any man to a wedding, sit
“ not down in the highest room; lest a more
“ honourable man than thou be bidden of him;
“ and he that bade thee and him come and say 9

“ to thee, Give this man place; and thou begin • Prov. 25. “ with shame to take the lowest room.

But 10 6, 7.

“ when thou art bidden, go and sit down in 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

Jam. 4.6. Then said he also to him that bade him, 1 Pet 5.5. “ When 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 13“ made thee. But when thou makest a feast,

“ call the poor, the maimed, the lame, the 4 Neh. & 14 “ blind: and thou shalt be blessed; for they 10, 12. “ cannot recompense thee: for thou shalt be

recompensed at the resurrection of the just.” 15 And when one of them that sat at meat

with him heard these things, he said unto him,

2 e Blessed is he that shall eat bread in the king- . Rev. 19. 16 dom of God. Then said he unto him, "A certain

“ man made a great supper, and bade many: 17" and "sent his servant at supper time to say to * Prov. 9.

“ them that were bidden, Come; for all things 2, 5. 18“ 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
19" me excused. And another said, I have bought

“ five yoke of oxen, and I go to prove them:
20 I
pray

thee have me excused. And another
“ said, I have married a wife, and therefore I
21 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 22“ maimed, and the halt, and the blind. And

“the servant said, Lord, it is done as thou hast 23 commanded, and yet there is room. And the “ lord said unto the servant. Go out into the highways and hedges, and compel them to

91. The disciples of Christ must be ready to for-
sake all for his sake.

L. 14.
And there went great multitudes with him:
* Deut. 13. and he turned, and said unto them, “ If any

man come to me, Þand hate not his father,

“ and mother, and wife, and children, and breRev. 12. “ thren, and sisters, yea, and his own life also,

“ he cannot be my disciple. And whosoever 27

“ doth not bear his cross, and come after me, • Prov.24. “ cannot be my disciple. For which of you, 28

intending to build a tower, sitteth not down
“ first, and counteth the cost, whether he have

sufficient to finish it? lest haply, after he hath 29
“ laid the foundation, and is not able to finish
“ it, all that behold it begin to mock him, say- 30
“ing, This man began to build, and was not
“ able to finish. Or what king, going to make 31

war against another king, sitteth not down
“ first, and consulteth whether he be able with
“ ten thousand to meet him that cometh against
“ him with twenty thousand? or else, while the 32
“ other is yet a great way off, he sendeth an

2 and sinners for to hear him. And the Pharisees
and scribes murmured, saying, This man receiv-
eth sinners, * and eateth with them.

And he spake this parable unto them, saying, Gal 2. 12.
4“ What man of you, having an hundred sheep,
“ if he lose one of them, doth not leave the

ninety and nine in the wilderness, and go 5 “ after that which is lost, until he find it? and

“ when he hath found it, he layeth it on his
6“ shoulders, rejoicing. And when he cometh

home, he calleth together his friends and
neighbours, saying unto them, Rejoice with

me; for I have found my sheep which was b 1 Pet. 2
7“ lost. I say unto you, that likewise joy shall 10, 25.
“ be in heaven over one sinner that repenteth,

more than over ninety and nine just persons, “ which need no repentance.

“ Either what woman having ten pieces of silver, if she lose one piece, doth not light a “candle, and sweep the house, and seek dili9“ gently till she find it? and when she hath “ found it, she calleth her friends and her neigh“.bours together, saying, Rejoice with me; for

“ I have found the piece which I had lost. 10 “ Likewise, I say unto you, there is joy in the

presence of the angels of God over one sinner
“ that repenteth.

"
And he said, “ A certain man had two sons :
12“ and the younger of them said to his father,

“ Father, give me the portion of goods that

“ falleth to me. And he divided unto them his 13 “ living. And not many days after the younger

son gathered all together, and took his journey “ into a far country, and there wasted his sub14 “ stance with riotous living. And when he had
