1 At the same time came the Disciples vnto Iesus, saying, Who is the greatest in the Kingdome of heauen?

2 And Iesus called a little child vnto him, and set him in the midst of them,

3 And said, Uerily I say vnto you, Except yee be conuerted, and become as little children, yee shall not enter into the kingdome of heauen.

4 Whosoeuer therefore shall humble himselfe as this little childe, the same is greatest in the Kingdome of heauen.

5 And who so shall receiue one such little child in my name, receiueth me.

6 But who so shall offend one of these little ones which beleeue in me, it were better for him that a milstone were hanged about his necke, and that hee were drowned in the depth of the Sea.

7 Woe vnto the world because of offences: for it must needs be that offences come: but wo to that man by whom the offence commeth.

8 Wherefore if thy hand or thy foote offend thee, cut them off, and cast them from thee: it is better for thee to enter into life halt or maimed, rather then hauing two hands or two feete, to be cast into euerlasting fire.

9 And if thine eie offend thee, plucke it out, and cast it from thee: it is better for thee to enter into life with one eie, rather then hauing two eies, to be cast into hell fire.

10 Take heed that yee despise not one of these little ones: for I say vnto you, that in heauen their Angels do alwaies behold the face of my father which is in heauen.

11 For the sonne of man is come to saue that which was lost.

12 How thinke yee? if a man haue an hundred sheepe, and one of them be gone astray, doth he not leaue the ninetie and nine, and goeth into the mountaines, and seeketh that which is gone astray?

13 And if so be that he find it, Uerily I say vnto you, hee reioyceth more of that sheepe, then of the ninetie and nine which went not astray.

14 Euen so, it is not the will of your father which is in heauen, that one of these little ones should perish.

15 Moreouer, if thy brother shall trespasse against thee, goe and tell him his fault betweene thee and him alone: if he shall heare thee, thou hast gained thy brother.

16 But if he will not heare thee, then take with thee one or two more, that in the mouth of two or three witnesses, euery word may be established.

17 And if hee shall neglect to heare them, tell it vnto the Church: But if he neglect to heare the Church, let him be vnto thee as an heathen man, and a Publicane.

18 Uerily I say vnto you, Whatsoeuer ye shall binde on earth, shall bee bound in heauen: and whatsoeuer yee shall loose on earth, shall bee loosed in heauen.

19 Againe I say vnto you, that if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall aske, it shall bee done for them of my father which is in heauen.

20 For where two or three are gathered together in my Name, there am I in the midst of them.

21 Then came Peter to him, and said, Lord, how oft shall my brother sinne against mee, and I forgiue him? till seuen times?

22 Iesus saith vnto him, I say not vnto thee, Untill seuen times: but, Untill seuentie times seuen.

23 Therefore is the kingdome of heauen likened vnto a certaine king, which would take accompt of his seruants.

24 And when hee had begun to reckon, one was brought vnto him which ought him ten thousand talents.

25 But forasmuch as hee had not to pay, his lord commanded him to bee sold, and his wife, and children, and all that he had, and payment to be made.

26 The seruant therfore fell downe, and worshipped him, saying, Lord, haue patience with mee, and I will pay thee all.

27 Then the Lord of that seruant was moued with compassion, and loosed him, and forgaue him the debt.

28 But the same seruant went out, and found one of his fellow-seruants, which ought him an hundred pence: and hee layd handes on him, and tooke him by the throte, saying, Pay mee that thou owest.

29 And his fellow seruant fell downe at his feete, and besought him, saying, Haue patience with me, and I will pay thee all.

30 And he would not: but went and cast him into prison, till hee should pay the debt.

31 So when his fellow-seruants saw what was done, they were very sorie, and came, and told vnto their lord all that was done.

32 Then his lord, after that hee had called him, said vnto him, O thou wicked seruant, I forgaue thee all that debt because thou desiredst me:

33 Shouldest not thou also haue had compassion on thy fellow-seruant, euen as I had pitie on thee?

34 And his lord was wroth, and deliuered him to the tormentors, till hee should pay all that was due vnto him.

35 So likewise shall my heauenly Father doe also vnto you, if yee from your hearts forgiue not euery one his brother their trespasses.

OMALE's Matthew Chapter 18 comment on 1/17/2015, 1:04am...

Chapter 18 is a very powerful Scripture because it shows us the secret of greatness, victory and a healthy Christian living. These are humility verses 1-3 , forgiveness verses 21-23 , agreement verse 18 and God 's presence verse 20 . With these, we can bind and loose anything on earth as it be so in heaven and anything we ask the Father in JESUS NAME will be given to us. Praise God.


Eric's Matthew Chapter 18 comment on 1/16/2015, 1:46pm...

Since we are to become like children in service and the longing to know our Heavenly Father, the children we encounter are to be equal to us. Taking out ego and traits we have adopted in this fallen world. To help and give guidance in the name of Jesus who called the little children unto him. Amen


Dev's Matthew Chapter 18 comment on 1/09/2015, 11:21pm...

Most likely those that abuse and encourage, through their evil actions, children to turn from The Law and The Gospel.


Evangelist Chatauna Robinson's Matthew Chapter 18 comment on 12/10/2014, 7:30pm...

Hello Vanessa Sorry to hear about your father passing. It is actually twofold. You have to ask yourself who this relationship is referring to. Who is the relationship between? The relationship that was lost with mankind when Adam sinned in the Garden of Eden. We all became sinners. Romans 5 12 Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned The relationship was broken. So when the scripture states that he came to seek and save that which was lost. He came to seek a people whose relationship had been broken by one man s act of disobedient. He came to save them from this broken relationship. In the end, Jesus Christ mission was to save that which was lost. Matthew 1 21 And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS for he shall save his people from their sins. How you get saved from your sins is that you follow Acts 2 38.


Vanessa's Matthew Chapter 18 comment about verse 11 on 12/10/2014, 6:02am...

My late Dad who had been a minister for over 60 yrs. told me one time that while he was studying this passage, it became clear that we need to look the word "THAT " in this passage. "THAT " is talking about an OBJECT not a person. He said it was referring to the RELATIONSHIP between God man that was lost when Adam Eve sinned........not so much the sinner. The RELATIONSHIP that was lost when sin entered the world is what causes us to be sinners. God wants us to have a relationship w Him, but because of sin, the relationship has been severed Christ came to bring that relationship back into line. When He seeks to bring that relationship back into line, it is the sinner that is reunited w Him when he the sinner realizes he is lost.


Evangelist Chatauna Robinson's Matthew Chapter 18 comment on 11/30/2014, 5:17am...

Hello Mvuyelwa Tshisa Proverbs 15 3 The eyes of the LORD are in every place, beholding the evil and the good . This is an individual walk as well. God hears everything and see everything. He is Omnipresent, Omniscient, and Omnipotent. When you pray and ask God he hears you. However, he may not always answer because you can pray in amiss, James 4 3 Ye ask, and receive not, because ye ask amiss, that ye may consume it upon your lusts. When you do not know what to pray for, you can always say the pray that Jesus told us to pray, Luke 11 2. Under this grace age, people should be praying to the Lord to save them and they should follow Acts 2 38. This is the promise.
