1 Christ teacheth to auoid occasions of offence. 3 One to forgiue another. 6 The power of faith. 7 How we are bound to God, and not he to vs. 11 Hee healeth ten lepers. 22 Of the kingdome of God, and the comming of the Sonne of man.
1Then said he vnto the disciples, It is impossible but that offences will come, but wo vnto him through whom they come.1
It were better for him that a milstone were hanged about his necke, and he cast into the Sea, then that he should offend one of these little ones.
¶ Take heed to your selues: If thy brother trespasse against thee, rebuke him, and if he repent, forgiue him.3
And if hee trespasse against thee seuen times in a day, and seuen times in a day turne againe to thee, saying, I repent, thou shalt forgiue him.
And the Apostles said vnto the Lord, Increase our faith.
And the Lord said, If yee had faith as a graine of mustard seede, yee might say vnto this Sycamine tree, Be thou plucked vp by the root, and be thou planted in the sea, & it should obey you.6
But which of you hauing a seruant plowing, or feeding cattell, will say vnto him by & by when he is come from the field, Goe and sit downe to meate?
And will not rather say vnto him, Make ready wherewith I may suppe, and gird thy selfe, and serue me, till I haue eaten and drunken: and afterward thou shalt eate and drinke.
Doeth he thanke that seruant, because hee did the things that were commanded him? I trow not.
So likewise ye, when ye shal haue done all those things which are commanded you, say, Wee are vnprofitable seruants: Wee haue done that which was our duety to doe.
Ten lepers clensed.
¶ And it came to passe, as he went to Hierusalem, that hee passed thorow the mids of Samaria and Galile.
And as he entred into a certaine village, there met him tenne men that were lepers, which stood afarre off.
And they lifted vp their voices, and said, Iesus master haue mercy on vs.
And when he saw them, hee said vnto them, Goe shew your selues vnto the Priests. And it came to passe, that as they went, they were cleansed.14
And one of them when hee sawe that he was healed, turned backe, and with a loud voice glorified God,
And fell downe on his face at his feet, giuing him thanks: and he was a Samaritane.
And Iesus answering, said, Were there not ten cleansed, but where are the nine?
There are not found that returned to giue glory to God, saue this stranger.
And he said vnto him, Arise, go thy way, thy faith hath made thee whole.
¶ And when hee was demanded of the Pharises, when the kingdome of God should come, hee answered them, and said, The kingdome of God commeth not with obseruation.20
Neither shall they say, Loe here, or loe there: for behold, the kingdome of God is within you.21
And hee said vnto the disciples, The dayes will come, when ye shall desire to see one of the dayes of the Sonne of man, and ye shall not see it.
And they shall say to you, See here, or see there: Goe not after them, nor follow them.23

But first must hee suffer many things, & be reiected of this generation.
And as it was in the dayes of Noe: so shal it be also in the dayes of the Sonne of man.26

An vniust iudge.
But the same day that Lot went out of Sodome, it rained fire and brimstone from heauen, & destroyed them all:
Euen thus shall it bee in the day when the Sonne of man is reuealed.
In that day he which shall be vpon the house top, and his stuffe in the house, let him not come downe to take it away: and he that is in the field, let him likewise not returne backe.
