given such power to men.
9 As Jesus departed thence, he saw a man, named

Matthew, sitting at the toll-office ; to whom he

said, Follow me. And he arose and followed him. 10 Afterwards Jesus, being at table in a house,

many publicans and sinners came, and placed 11 themselves with him and his disciples. Some Pha

risees observing this, said to his disciples, Why

doth your teacher eat with publicans and sinners ? 12 Jesus hearing them, answered, The whole need 13 not a physician, but the sick. Go, therefore, and

learn what this meaneth, “I require humanity, " and not sacrifice :" for I came to call, not the

righteous, but sinners to repentance. 7 14 Then John's disciples accosting him, said, We

been twelve years afflicted with a bloody issue, 21 coming behind, touched the tuft of his mantle ; for

she said within herself, If I but touch his mantle, 22 · I shall recover :' Jesus turning about, saw her,

and said, Daughter, take courage, thy faith hath
cured thee. And the woman was well from that

instant. 23 Being come into the ruler's house, and seeing Mar. 5;

the players on the flute, with the crowd making a 24 bustle, he said to them, Withdraw, for the damsel 25 is not dead, but asleep. And they derided him :

But when the people were put out, he entered,

and having taken her by the hand, the damsel 26 arose. Now the fame of this action spread through

all that country. 27 When Jesus departed thence, two blind men fol

lowed him, crying, Son of David, have pity upon 28 us. Being come into the house, the blind men approached: and Jesus said to them, Do

ye

believe that I can do this? They answered, Yes, Master. 29 Then he touched their eyes, saying, Be it unto you 30 according to your faith. Immediately their eyes

were opened. And Jesus strictly charging them, 31 said, 'Take care that nobody know it. But being

departed, they spread his fame through all that

country. 32 They were scarcely gone, when a dumb demo- Lu. 11; 14. 33 niac was presented to him. The demon being ex

when he saw the multitudes he had compassion upon

them, because they were scattered and exposed, 37 like a flock without a shepherd. Then he said to

harvest, that he would send labourers to reap it.

And whatever city or village ye enter, inquire what person of worth dwelleth there; and abide 12 with him until ye leave the place. When ye enter 13 the house, salute the family. Ifthe family be worthy,

when they deliver you up, be not anxious how, or

what ye shall speak; for what ye should speak 20 shall be suggested to you in that moment. For it

shall not be ye that shall speak; but the Spirit of Lu. 21; 16. 21 my Father who will speak by you. Then the bro

ther the child ; and children will arise against their 22 parents, and procure their death.

And for my name ye shall be hated universally. But the man

who persevereth to the end, shall be saved. 23 Therefore, when they persecute you in one city,

flee to another, for verily I say unto you, ye shall

not have gone through the cities of Israel, ere the

24 Son of Man be come. A disciple is not above his Jo. 13; 16. & 15; 20. 25 teacher, nor a servant above his master. It is

enough for the disciple to be as his teacher, and for the servant to be as his master. If they have calle ed the master of the house Beelzebub, how much

more will they call his domestics? Mar. 4; 22. 26 Therefore fear them not'; for there is nothing

hidden that shall not be detected; nothing secret 27 that shall not be known. What I tell

you

in the dark, publish in the light; and what is whis

pered in your ear, proclaim from the house tops. 28 And fear not them who kill the body, but cannot

kill the soul; fear rather him who can destroy 29 both soul and body in hell. Are not two sparrows'
