And they send unto him certain of the Pharisees and of the Herodians, to catch him in his words.
 And when they were come, they say unto him, Master, we know that thou art true, and carest for no man: for thou regardest not the person of men, but teachest the way of God in truth: Is it lawful to give tribute to Caesar, or not?
 Shall we give, or shall we not give? But he, knowing their hypocrisy, said unto them, Why tempt ye me? bring me a penny, that I may see it.
 And they brought it. And he saith unto them, Whose is this image and superscription? And they said unto him, Caesar’s.
 And Jesus answering said unto them, Render to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s, and to God the things that are God’s. And they marvelled at him.
 Then come unto him the Sadducees, which say there is no resurrection; and they asked him, saying,
 Master, Moses wrote unto us, If a man’s brother die, and leave his wife behind him, and leave no children, that his brother should take his wife, and raise up seed unto his brother.
 Now there were seven brethren: and the first took a wife, and dying left no seed.
 And the second took her, and died, neither left he any seed: and the third likewise.
 And the seven had her, and left no seed: last of all the woman died also.
 In the resurrection therefore, when they shall rise, whose wife shall she be of them? for the seven had her to wife.
 And Jesus answering said unto them, Do ye not therefore err, because ye know not the scriptures, neither the power of God?
 For when they shall rise from the dead, they neither marry, nor are given in marriage; but are as the angels which are in heaven.
 And as touching the dead, that they rise: have ye not read in the book of Moses, how in the bush God spake unto him, saying, I am the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob?
 He is not the God of the dead, but the God of the living: ye therefore do greatly err.
 And one of the scribes came, and having heard them reasoning together, and perceiving that he had answered them well, asked him, Which is the first commandment of all?
 And Jesus answered him, The first of all the commandments is, Hear, O Israel; The Lord our God is one Lord:
 And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment.
 And the second is like, namely this, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. There is none other commandment greater than these.
 And the scribe said unto him, Well, Master, thou hast said the truth: for there is one God; and there is none other but he:
 And to love him with all the heart, and with all the understanding, and with all the soul, and with all the strength, and to love his neighbour as himself, is more than all whole burnt offerings and sacrifices.
 And when Jesus saw that he answered discreetly, he said unto him, Thou art not far from the kingdom of God. And no man after that durst ask him any question.
 And Jesus answered and said, while he taught in the temple, How say the scribes that Christ is the Son of David?
 For David himself said by the Holy Ghost, The Lord said to my Lord, Sit thou on my right hand, till I make thine enemies thy footstool.
 David therefore himself calleth him Lord; and whence is he then his son? And the common people heard him gladly.
 And he said unto them in his doctrine, Beware of the scribes, which love to go in long clothing, and love salutations in the marketplaces,
 And the chief seats in the synagogues, and the uppermost rooms at feasts:
 Which devour widows’ houses, and for a pretence make long prayers: these shall receive greater damnation.
 And Jesus sat over against the treasury, and beheld how the people cast money into the treasury: and many that were rich cast in much.
 And there came a certain poor widow, and she threw in two mites, which make a farthing.
 And he called unto him his disciples, and saith unto them, Verily I say unto you, That this poor widow hath cast more in, than all they which have cast into the treasury:
 For all they did cast in of their abundance; but she of her want did cast in all that she had, even all her living.
 These are the generations of Noah: Noah was a just man and perfect in his generations, and Noah walked with God.
 And Noah begat three sons, Shem, Ham, and Japheth.
 The earth also was corrupt before God, and the earth was filled with violence.
 And God looked upon the earth, and, behold, it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted his way upon the earth.
 And God said unto Noah, The end of all flesh is come before me; for the earth is filled with violence through them; and, behold, I will destroy them with the earth.
 Make thee an ark of gopher wood; rooms shalt thou make in the ark, and shalt pitch it within and without with pitch.
 And this is the fashion which thou shalt make it of: The length of the ark shall be three hundred cubits, the breadth of it fifty cubits, and the height of it thirty cubits.
 A window shalt thou make to the ark, and in a cubit shalt thou finish it above; and the door of the ark shalt thou set in the side thereof; with lower, second, and third stories shalt thou make it.
 And, behold, I, even I, do bring a flood of waters upon the earth, to destroy all flesh, wherein is the breath of life, from under heaven; and every thing that is in the earth shall die.
 But with thee will I establish my covenant; and thou shalt come into the ark, thou, and thy sons, and thy wife, and thy sons’ wives with thee.
 And of every living thing of all flesh, two of every sort shalt thou bring into the ark, to keep them alive with thee; they shall be male and female.
 Of fowls after their kind, and of cattle after their kind, of every creeping thing of the earth after his kind, two of every sort shall come unto thee, to keep them alive.
 And take thou unto thee of all food that is eaten, and thou shalt gather it to thee; and it shall be for food for thee, and for them.
 Thus did Noah; according to all that God commanded him, so did he.
 And the LORD said unto Noah, Come thou and all thy house into the ark; for thee have I seen righteous before me in this generation.
 Of every clean beast thou shalt take to thee by sevens, the male and his female: and of beasts that are not clean by two, the male and his female.
 Of fowls also of the air by sevens, the male and the female; to keep seed alive upon the face of all the earth.
 For yet seven days, and I will cause it to rain upon the earth forty days and forty nights; and every living substance that I have made will I destroy from off the face of the earth.
 And Noah did according unto all that the LORD commanded him.
 And Noah was six hundred years old when the flood of waters was upon the earth.
 And Noah went in, and his sons, and his wife, and his sons’ wives with him, into the ark, because of the waters of the flood.
 Of clean beasts, and of beasts that are not clean, and of fowls, and of every thing that creepeth upon the earth,
 There went in two and two unto Noah into the ark, the male and the female, as God had commanded Noah.
 And it came to pass after seven days, that the waters of the flood were upon the earth.
 In the six hundredth year of Noah’s life, in the second month, the seventeenth day of the month, the same day were all the fountains of the great deep broken up, and the windows of heaven were opened.
 And the rain was upon the earth forty days and forty nights.
 In the selfsame day entered Noah, and Shem, and Ham, and Japheth, the sons of Noah, and Noah’s wife, and the three wives of his sons with them, into the ark;
 They, and every beast after his kind, and all the cattle after their kind, and every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth after his kind, and every fowl after his kind, every bird of every sort.
 And they went in unto Noah into the ark, two and two of all flesh, wherein is the breath of life.
 And they that went in, went in male and female of all flesh, as God had commanded him: and the LORD shut him in.
 And the flood was forty days upon the earth; and the waters increased, and bare up the ark, and it was lift up above the earth.
 And the waters prevailed, and were increased greatly upon the earth; and the ark went upon the face of the waters.
 And the waters prevailed exceedingly upon the earth; and all the high hills, that were under the whole heaven, were covered.
 Fifteen cubits upward did the waters prevail; and the mountains were covered.
 And all flesh died that moved upon the earth, both of fowl, and of cattle, and of beast, and of every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth, and every man:
 All in whose nostrils was the breath of life, of all that was in the dry land, died.
 And every living substance was destroyed which was upon the face of the ground, both man, and cattle, and the creeping things, and the fowl of the heaven; and they were destroyed from the earth: and Noah only remained alive, and they that were with him in the ark.
 And the waters prevailed upon the earth an hundred and fifty days.
 And God remembered Noah, and every living thing, and all the cattle that was with him in the ark: and God made a wind to pass over the earth, and the waters asswaged;
 The fountains also of the deep and the windows of heaven were stopped, and the rain from heaven was restrained;
 And the waters returned from off the earth continually: and after the end of the hundred and fifty days the waters were abated.
 And the ark rested in the seventh month, on the seventeenth day of the month, upon the mountains of Ararat.
 And the waters decreased continually until the tenth month: in the tenth month, on the first day of the month, were the tops of the mountains seen.
 And it came to pass at the end of forty days, that Noah opened the window of the ark which he had made:
 And he sent forth a raven, which went forth to and fro, until the waters were dried up from off the earth.
 Also he sent forth a dove from him, to see if the waters were abated from off the face of the ground;
 But the dove found no rest for the sole of her foot, and she returned unto him into the ark, for the waters were on the face of the whole earth: then he put forth his hand, and took her, and pulled her in unto him into the ark.
 And he stayed yet other seven days; and again he sent forth the dove out of the ark;
 And the dove came in to him in the evening; and, lo, in her mouth was an olive leaf pluckt off: so Noah knew that the waters were abated from off the earth.
 And he stayed yet other seven days; and sent forth the dove; which returned not again unto him any more.
 And it came to pass in the six hundredth and first year, in the first month, the first day of the month, the waters were dried up from off the earth: and Noah removed the covering of the ark, and looked, and, behold, the face of the ground was dry.
 And in the second month, on the seven and twentieth day of the month, was the earth dried.
 And God spake unto Noah, saying,
 Go forth of the ark, thou, and thy wife, and thy sons, and thy sons’ wives with thee.
 Bring forth with thee every living thing that is with thee, of all flesh, both of fowl, and of cattle, and of every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth; that they may breed abundantly in the earth, and be fruitful, and multiply upon the earth.
 And Noah went forth, and his sons, and his wife, and his sons’ wives with him:
 Every beast, every creeping thing, and every fowl, and whatsoever creepeth upon the earth, after their kinds, went forth out of the ark.
 And Noah builded an altar unto the LORD; and took of every clean beast, and of every clean fowl, and offered burnt offerings on the altar.
 And the LORD smelled a sweet savour; and the LORD said in his heart, I will not again curse the ground any more for man’s sake; for the imagination of man’s heart is evil from his youth; neither will I again smite any more every thing living, as I have done.
 While the earth remaineth, seedtime and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease.
 And God blessed Noah and his sons, and said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth.
 And the fear of you and the dread of you shall be upon every beast of the earth, and upon every fowl of the air, upon all that moveth upon the earth, and upon all the fishes of the sea; into your hand are they delivered.
 Every moving thing that liveth shall be meat for you; even as the green herb have I given you all things.
 But flesh with the life thereof, which is the blood thereof, shall ye not eat.
 And surely your blood of your lives will I require; at the hand of every beast will I require it, and at the hand of man; at the hand of every man’s brother will I require the life of man.
 Whoso sheddeth man’s blood, by man shall his blood be shed: for in the image of God made he man.
 And you, be ye fruitful, and multiply; bring forth abundantly in the earth, and multiply therein.
 And God spake unto Noah, and to his sons with him, saying,
 And I, behold, I establish my covenant with you, and with your seed after you;
 And with every living creature that is with you, of the fowl, of the cattle, and of every beast of the earth with you; from all that go out of the ark, to every beast of the earth.
 And I will establish my covenant with you; neither shall all flesh be cut off any more by the waters of a flood; neither shall there any more be a flood to destroy the earth.
 And God said, This is the token of the covenant which I make between me and you and every living creature that is with you, for perpetual generations:
 I do set my bow in the cloud, and it shall be for a token of a covenant between me and the earth.
 And it shall come to pass, when I bring a cloud over the earth, that the bow shall be seen in the cloud:
 And I will remember my covenant, which is between me and you and every living creature of all flesh; and the waters shall no more become a flood to destroy all flesh.
 And the bow shall be in the cloud; and I will look upon it, that I may remember the everlasting covenant between God and every living creature of all flesh that is upon the earth.
 And God said unto Noah, This is the token of the covenant, which I have established between me and all flesh that is upon the earth.
 Wisdom hath builded her house, she hath hewn out her seven pillars:
 She hath killed her beasts; she hath mingled her wine; she hath also furnished her table.
 She hath sent forth her maidens: she crieth upon the highest places of the city,
 Whoso is simple, let him turn in hither: as for him that wanteth understanding, she saith to him,
 Come, eat of my bread, and drink of the wine which I have mingled.
 Forsake the foolish, and live; and go in the way of understanding.
 He that reproveth a scorner getteth to himself shame: and he that rebuketh a wicked man getteth himself a blot.
 Reprove not a scorner, lest he hate thee: rebuke a wise man, and he will love thee.
 Give instruction to a wise man, and he will be yet wiser: teach a just man, and he will increase in learning.
 The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom: and the knowledge of the holy is understanding.
 For by me thy days shall be multiplied, and the years of thy life shall be increased.
 If thou be wise, thou shalt be wise for thyself: but if thou scornest, thou alone shalt bear it.
 A foolish woman is clamourous: she is simple, and knoweth nothing.
 For she sitteth at the door of her house, on a seat in the high places of the city,
 To call passengers who go right on their ways:
 Whoso is simple, let him turn in hither: and as for him that wanteth understanding, she saith to him,
 Stolen waters are sweet, and bread eaten in secret is pleasant.
 But he knoweth not that the dead are there; and that her guests are in the depths of hell.
 The proverbs of Solomon. A wise son maketh a glad father: but a foolish son is the heaviness of his mother.
 Treasures of wickedness profit nothing: but righteousness delivereth from death.
 The LORD will not suffer the soul of the righteous to famish: but he casteth away the substance of the wicked.
 He becometh poor that dealeth with a slack hand: but the hand of the diligent maketh rich.
 He that gathereth in summer is a wise son: but he that sleepeth in harvest is a son that causeth shame.
 Blessings are upon the head of the just: but violence covereth the mouth of the wicked.
 O Zion, that bringest good tidings, get thee up into the high mountain; O Jerusalem, that bringest good tidings, lift up thy voice with strength; lift it up, be not afraid; say unto the cities of Judah, Behold your God!
 Behold, the Lord GOD will come with strong hand, and his arm shall rule for him: behold, his reward is with him, and his work before him.
 He shall feed his flock like a shepherd: he shall gather the lambs with his arm, and carry them in his bosom, and shall gently lead those that are with young.
 Who hath measured the waters in the hollow of his hand, and meted out heaven with the span, and comprehended the dust of the earth in a measure, and weighed the mountains in scales, and the hills in a balance?
 Who hath directed the Spirit of the LORD, or being his counseller hath taught him?
 With whom took he counsel, and who instructed him, and taught him in the path of judgment, and taught him knowledge, and shewed to him the way of understanding?
 Behold, the nations are as a drop of a bucket, and are counted as the small dust of the balance: behold, he taketh up the isles as a very little thing.
 And Lebanon is not sufficient to burn, nor the beasts thereof sufficient for a burnt offering.
 All nations before him are as nothing; and they are counted to him less than nothing, and vanity.
 And Jesus went out, and departed from the temple: and his disciples came to him for to shew him the buildings of the temple.
 And Jesus said unto them, See ye not all these things? verily I say unto you, There shall not be left here one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down.
 And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world?
 And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you.
 For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.
 And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.
 For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.
 All these are the beginning of sorrows.
 Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name’s sake.
 And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another.
 And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many.
 And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.
 But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.
 And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.
 When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:)
 Then let them which be in Judaea flee into the mountains:
 Let him which is on the housetop not come down to take any thing out of his house:
 Neither let him which is in the field return back to take his clothes.
 And woe unto them that are with child, and to them that give suck in those days!
 But pray ye that your flight be not in the winter, neither on the sabbath day:
 For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.
 And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect’s sake those days shall be shortened.
 Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or there; believe it not.
 For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.
 Behold, I have told you before.
 Wherefore if they shall say unto you, Behold, he is in the desert; go not forth: behold, he is in the secret chambers; believe it not.
 For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
 For wheresoever the carcase is, there will the eagles be gathered together.
 Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken:
 And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.
 And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.
 Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is nigh:
 So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors.
 Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled.
 Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.
 But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.
 But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
 For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark,
 And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
 Then shall two be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left.
 Two women shall be grinding at the mill; the one shall be taken, and the other left.
 Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come.
 But know this, that if the goodman of the house had known in what watch the thief would come, he would have watched, and would not have suffered his house to be broken up.
 Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh.
 Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom his lord hath made ruler over his household, to give them meat in due season?
 Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he cometh shall find so doing.
 Verily I say unto you, That he shall make him ruler over all his goods.
 But and if that evil servant shall say in his heart, My lord delayeth his coming;
 And shall begin to smite his fellowservants, and to eat and drink with the drunken;
 The lord of that servant shall come in a day when he looketh not for him, and in an hour that he is not aware of,
 And shall cut him asunder, and appoint him his portion with the hypocrites: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
 Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins, which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom.
 And five of them were wise, and five were foolish.
 They that were foolish took their lamps, and took no oil with them:
 But the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps.
 While the bridegroom tarried, they all slumbered and slept.
 And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him.
 Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps.
 And the foolish said unto the wise, Give us of your oil; for our lamps are gone out.
 But the wise answered, saying, Not so; lest there be not enough for us and you: but go ye rather to them that sell, and buy for yourselves.
 And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came; and they that were ready went in with him to the marriage: and the door was shut.
 Afterward came also the other virgins, saying, Lord, Lord, open to us.
 But he answered and said, Verily I say unto you, I know you not.
 Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh.
 For the kingdom of heaven is as a man travelling into a far country, who called his own servants, and delivered unto them his goods.
 And unto one he gave five talents, to another two, and to another one; to every man according to his several ability; and straightway took his journey.
 Then he that had received the five talents went and traded with the same, and made them other five talents.
 And likewise he that had received two, he also gained other two.
 But he that had received one went and digged in the earth, and hid his lord’s money.
 After a long time the lord of those servants cometh, and reckoneth with them.
 And so he that had received five talents came and brought other five talents, saying, Lord, thou deliveredst unto me five talents: behold, I have gained beside them five talents more.
 His lord said unto him, Well done, thou good and faithful servant: thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord.
 He also that had received two talents came and said, Lord, thou deliveredst unto me two talents: behold, I have gained two other talents beside them.
 His lord said unto him, Well done, good and faithful servant; thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord.
 Then he which had received the one talent came and said, Lord, I knew thee that thou art an hard man, reaping where thou hast not sown, and gathering where thou hast not strawed:
 And I was afraid, and went and hid thy talent in the earth: lo, there thou hast that is thine.
 His lord answered and said unto him, Thou wicked and slothful servant, thou knewest that I reap where I sowed not, and gather where I have not strawed:
 Thou oughtest therefore to have put my money to the exchangers, and then at my coming I should have received mine own with usury.
 Take therefore the talent from him, and give it unto him which hath ten talents.
 For unto every one that hath shall be given, and he shall have abundance: but from him that hath not shall be taken away even that which he hath.
 And cast ye the unprofitable servant into outer darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
 When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory:
 And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats:
 And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left.
 Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world:
 For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in:
 Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me.
 Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink?
 When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee?
 Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee?
 And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.
 Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels:
 For I was an hungred, and ye gave me no meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me no drink:
 I was a stranger, and ye took me not in: naked, and ye clothed me not: sick, and in prison, and ye visited me not.
 Then shall they also answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, or athirst, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister unto thee?
 Then shall he answer them, saying, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye did it not to one of the least of these, ye did it not to me.
 And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal.
 And it came to pass, when Jesus had finished all these sayings, he said unto his disciples,
 Ye know that after two days is the feast of the passover, and the Son of man is betrayed to be crucified.
