1  And he said unto them, Verily I say unto you, That there be some of them that stand here, which shall not taste of death, till they have seen the kingdom of God come with power.

2  And after six days Jesus taketh with him Peter, and James, and John, and leadeth them up into an high mountain apart by themselves: and he was transfigured before them.

3  And his raiment became shining, exceeding white as snow; so as no fuller on earth can white them.

4  And there appeared unto them Elias with Moses: and they were talking with Jesus.

5  And Peter answered and said to Jesus, Master, it is good for us to be here: and let us make three tabernacles; one for thee, and one for Moses, and one for Elias.

6  For he wist not what to say; for they were sore afraid.

7  And there was a cloud that overshadowed them: and a voice came out of the cloud, saying, This is my beloved Son: hear him.

8  And suddenly, when they had looked round about, they saw no man any more, save Jesus only with themselves.

9  And as they came down from the mountain, he charged them that they should tell no man what things they had seen, till the Son of man were risen from the dead.

10  And they kept that saying with themselves, questioning one with another what the rising from the dead should mean.

11  And they asked him, saying, Why say the scribes that Elias must first come?

12  And he answered and told them, Elias verily cometh first, and restoreth all things; and how it is written of the Son of man, that he must suffer many things, and be set at nought.

13  But I say unto you, That Elias is indeed come, and they have done unto him whatsoever they listed, as it is written of him.

14  And when he came to his disciples, he saw a great multitude about them, and the scribes questioning with them.

15  And straightway all the people, when they beheld him, were greatly amazed, and running to him saluted him.

16  And he asked the scribes, What question ye with them?

17  And one of the multitude answered and said, Master, I have brought unto thee my son, which hath a dumb spirit;

18  And wheresoever he taketh him, he teareth him: and he foameth, and gnasheth with his teeth, and pineth away: and I spake to thy disciples that they should cast him out; and they could not.

19  He answereth him, and saith, O faithless generation, how long shall I be with you? how long shall I suffer you? bring him unto me.

20  And they brought him unto him: and when he saw him, straightway the spirit tare him; and he fell on the ground, and wallowed foaming.

21  And he asked his father, How long is it ago since this came unto him? And he said, Of a child.

22  And ofttimes it hath cast him into the fire, and into the waters, to destroy him: but if thou canst do any thing, have compassion on us, and help us.

23  Jesus said unto him, If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth.

24  And straightway the father of the child cried out, and said with tears, Lord, I believe; help thou mine unbelief.

25  When Jesus saw that the people came running together, he rebuked the foul spirit, saying unto him, Thou dumb and deaf spirit, I charge thee, come out of him, and enter no more into him.

26  And the spirit cried, and rent him sore, and came out of him: and he was as one dead; insomuch that many said, He is dead.

27  But Jesus took him by the hand, and lifted him up; and he arose.

28  And when he was come into the house, his disciples asked him privately, Why could not we cast him out?

29  And he said unto them, This kind can come forth by nothing, but by prayer and fasting.

30  And they departed thence, and passed through Galilee; and he would not that any man should know it.

31  For he taught his disciples, and said unto them, The Son of man is delivered into the hands of men, and they shall kill him; and after that he is killed, he shall rise the third day.

32  But they understood not that saying, and were afraid to ask him.

33  And he came to Capernaum: and being in the house he asked them, What was it that ye disputed among yourselves by the way?

34  But they held their peace: for by the way they had disputed among themselves, who should be the greatest.

35  And he sat down, and called the twelve, and saith unto them, If any man desire to be first, the same shall be last of all, and servant of all.

36  And he took a child, and set him in the midst of them: and when he had taken him in his arms, he said unto them,

37  Whosoever shall receive one of such children in my name, receiveth me: and whosoever shall receive me, receiveth not me, but him that sent me.

38  And John answered him, saying, Master, we saw one casting out devils in thy name, and he followeth not us: and we forbad him, because he followeth not us.

39  But Jesus said, Forbid him not: for there is no man which shall do a miracle in my name, that can lightly speak evil of me.

40  For he that is not against us is on our part.

41  For whosoever shall give you a cup of water to drink in my name, because ye belong to Christ, verily I say unto you, he shall not lose his reward.

42  And whosoever shall offend one of these little ones that believe in me, it is better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he were cast into the sea.

43  And if thy hand offend thee, cut it off: it is better for thee to enter into life maimed, than having two hands to go into hell, into the fire that never shall be quenched:

44  Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.

45  And if thy foot offend thee, cut it off: it is better for thee to enter halt into life, than having two feet to be cast into hell, into the fire that never shall be quenched:

46  Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.

47  And if thine eye offend thee, pluck it out: it is better for thee to enter into the kingdom of God with one eye, than having two eyes to be cast into hell fire:

48  Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.

49  For every one shall be salted with fire, and every sacrifice shall be salted with salt.

50  Salt is good: but if the salt have lost his saltness, wherewith will ye season it? Have salt in yourselves, and have peace one with another.


1  And aftir sixe daies Jhesus took Petre, and James, and Joon, and ledde hem bi hem silf aloone in to an hiy hille; and he was transfigurid bifor hem.

2  And hise clothis weren maad ful schynynge and white as snow, whiche maner white clothis a fuller may not make on erthe.

3  And Helie with Moises apperide to hem, and thei spaken with Jhesu.

4  And Petre answeride, and seide to Jhesu, Maister, it is good vs to be here; and make we here thre tabernaclis, oon to thee, oon to Moyses, and oon to Helie.

5  For he wiste not what he schulde seie; for thei weren agaste bi drede.

6  And ther was maad a cloude overschadewynge hem; and a vois cam of the cloude, and seide, This is my moost derworth sone, here ye hym.

7  And anoon thei bihelden aboute, and sayn no more ony man, but Jhesu oonli with hem.

8  And whanne thei camen doun fro the hille, he comaundide hem, that thei schulden not telle to ony man tho thingis that thei hadden seen, but whanne mannus sone hath risun ayen fro deeth.

9  And thei helden the word at hem silf, sekynge what this schulde be, whanne he hadde risun ayen fro deth.

10  And thei axiden hym, and seiden, What thanne seien Farisees and scribis, for it bihoueth `Helie to come first.

11  And he answeride, and seide to hem, Whanne Helie cometh, he schal first restore alle thingis; and as it is writun of mannus sone, that he suffre many thingis, and be dispisid.

12  And Y seie to you, that Helie is comun, and thei diden to hym what euer thingis thei wolden, as it is writun of hym.

13  And he comynge to hise disciplis, saiy a greet cumpany aboute hem, and scribis disputynge with hem.

14  And anoon al the puple seynge Jhesu, was astonyed, and thei dredden; and thei rennynge gretten hym.

15  And he axide hem, What disputen ye among you?

16  And oon of the cumpany answerde, and seide, Mayster, Y haue brouyt to thee my sone, that hath a doumbe spirit; and where euer he takith hym,

17  he hurtlith hym doun, and he fometh, and betith togidir with teeth, and wexith drye. And Y seide to thi disciplis, that thei schulden caste hym out, and thei myyten not.

18  And he answeride to hem, and seide, A! thou generacioun out of bileue, hou longe schal Y be among you, hou longe schal Y suffre you? Brynge ye hym to me.

19  And thei brouyten hym. And whanne he had seyn him, anoon the spirit troublide him; and was throw doun to grounde, and walewide, and fomede.

20  And he axide his fadir, Hou longe `is it, sith this `hath falle to hym? And he seide, Fro childhode;

21  and ofte he hath put hym in to fier, and in to watir, to leese hym; but if thou maiste ony thing, helpe vs, and haue merci on vs.

22  And Jhesus seide to hym, If thou maiste bileue, alle thingis ben possible to man that bileueth.

23  And anoon the fadir of the child criede with teeris, and seide, Lord, Y bileue; Lord, helpe thou myn vnbileue.

24  And whanne Jhesus hadde seyn the puple rennynge togidere, he manasside the vnclene spirit, and seide to hym, Thou deef and doumbe spirit, Y comaunde thee, go out fro hym, and entre no more in to hym.

25  And he criynge, and myche to breidynge him, wente out fro hym; and he was maad as deed, so that many seiden, that he was deed.

26  And Jhesus helde his hoond, and lifte hym vp; and he roos.

27  And whanne he hadde entrid in to an hous, hise disciplis axiden hym priueli, Whi myyten not we caste hym out?

28  And he seide to hem, This kynde in no thing may go out, but in preier and fastyng.

29  And thei yeden fro thennus, and wente forth in to Galile; and thei wolden not, that ony man wiste.

30  And he tauyte hise disciplis, and seide to hem, For mannus sone schal be bitrayed in to the hondis of men, and thei schulen sle hym, and he slayn schal ryse ayen on the thridde day.

31  And thei knewen not the word, and dredden to axe hym.

32  And thei camen to Cafarnaum. And whanne thei weren in the hous, he axide hem, What tretiden ye in the weie?

33  And thei weren stille; for thei disputiden among hem in the weie, who of hem schulde be grettest.

34  And he sat, and clepide the twelue, and seide to hem, If ony man wole be the firste among you, he schal be the laste of alle, and the mynyster of alle.

35  And he took a child, and sette hym in the myddil of hem; and whanne he hadde biclippid hym, he seide to hem,

36  Who euer resseyueth oon of such children in my name, he resseyueth me; and who euer resseyueth me, he resseyueth not me aloone, but hym that sente me.

37  Joon answeride to hym, and seide, Maister, we sayn oon castynge out feendis in thi name, which sueth not vs, and we han forbodun hym.

38  And Jhesus seide, Nyle ye forbede him; for ther is no man that doith vertu in my name, and may soone speke yuel of me.

39  He that is not ayens vs, is for vs.

40  And who euer yyueth you a cuppe of coold water to drynke in my name, for ye ben of Crist, treuli Y seie to you, he schal not leese his mede.

41  And who euer schal sclaundre oon of these litle that bileuen in me, it were betere to hym that a mylne stoon `of assis were don aboute his necke, and he were cast in to the see.

42  And if thin hoond sclaundre thee, kitte it awey; it is betere to thee to entre feble in to lijf, than haue two hondis, and go in to helle, in to fier that neuer schal be quenchid,

43  where the worm of hem dieth not, and the fier is not quenchid.

44  And if thi foote sclaundre thee, kitte it of; it is betere to thee to entre crokid in to euerlastynge lijf, than haue twei feet, and be sent in to helle of fier, that neuer schal be quenchid,

45  where the worme of hem dieth not, and the fier is not quenchid.

46  That if thin iye sclaundre thee, cast it out; it is betere to thee to entre gogil iyed in to the reume of God, than haue twey iyen, and be sent in to helle of fier, where the worme of hem dieth not,

47  and the fier is not quenchid.

48  And euery man schal be saltid with fier, and euery slayn sacrifice schal be maad sauery with salt.

49  Salt is good; if salt be vnsauery, in what thing schulen ye make it sauery? Haue ye salt among you, and haue ye pees among you.
